A NEW USE FOR PENSIONS. We have just read with painful in terest a recent debatoin Congress on Pen sion Appropriations participated in by Mr. Cheadle, of Indiana, Mr. Clements, of Georgia, Mr. Peters, of Kansas, and others which discloses a determination to deplete the Treasury for pensions that bodea no good for the tax-payers, presents the pension question in a new and novel phase, and shows a new use for pension appropriations. Mr. Cheadle opened the discussion by advo cating a service pension law by which every man who served sixty days in the Union army will be entitled to a pension. He declared that he would oppose every material reduction of the revenues ex cept upon sugar (which is about the only protected article raised in the South) sas," then, in the language of Flan nag an of Texas, may they ask each oth er: "What are we here for " Let the "booming" go on !

(Staff Cor. State Chronicle.) Winston, N. C, April 3. A commit tee of the Chamber of Commerce, con sisting of Mr. K. E. Fries, and Prof. W. A. Blair, have been for some days gathering the facts and figures pertain ing to the growth and trade of Winston Salem. The information obtained by this committee is from actual records, and not from exaggerated or inflated statements. In addition to the many startling facts embraced in our former letter, we give the amount paid out here to the wage- workers. This fact was determined to day, after a very careful investigation of the subject. The total amount per annum amounts to the "suug little -v a a. a sum- or fy7,ao,yo. Amount per month, $74,771,59. Average per day, $2,875.84. These figures represent accurately the total amount, not including the sum paid to clerks or persons employed in stores, shops, livery stables, hotels, restaurants or in other lines of trade or business except the factories. Now when you take all into an account the amount will raech the enormous sum of over one million dollars. Now when you think that in ad dition to this there is one million paid out annually for stamps, you will have some idea of the tobacco interest of the place. Winston is different in many respects irom any otner town in the State, in that its growth is steady and at the same time rapid. The people are full of ener gy and pluck. What she is, is due to her citizens. What she will be in the future will be due to the same cause. In her progress should be the pride of every citizen of the State and it is with pleas ure that we are enabled to mark the prosperity of her people.

He concluded with 4 'The veterans demanded it; national honor required it; national grati tude called for it." Mn. Clements, of (leorgia, whom we know to be pa triotic and truly national in spirit, at this juncture rose and asked the speaker why Commissioner Tannkb had been requested to resign. This was a Ktunning question, and the reply was that an answer would involve going into detail. Mr. Clements, finding that he had his opponents on the 4 'hip," kept up the fire and declared that while he fa vored just appropriations to the soldiers, the country was not in a condition to in crease the taxes in order to grant pen sions. To prove that the people were already staggering under the burdens of taxation, he quoted the utterance of the Farmers1 Alliance in Kansas who in their distress were appealing to Congress for some aid. Mr. Clements, continu ing, said that he had read an article in the Washington Post which purported to bo an interview with Congressmen Fun ston, of Kansas, in which that gentle man advocated increased pensions in order to rolieve the poverty and depres sion of the farmers in Kansas. The Post said : 4 'Representative Funston inclines to the opinion that more liberal pension laws would put more money in circula tion, and hence have a tendency TO BOOM PRICES and materially assist the farmers. This view is coincided in by Congressmen Peters and Perkins." Commenting upon this statement Mr. Clements was particularly strong and satirical, and held up the Kansas gentle' men statesmen so-called to ridicule. We make room for one extract from his cutting speech: Now. Mr. Chairman, that is a new idea in favor of pension legislation, that it is to 4 'boom" Kansas or to "boom" any other section of the country. My idea was that pensions were granted to the soldiers for their services, sacrifices and necessities, not that they were to be given to 44boom" prices in any particular locality, a thing which cannot be done without depressing prices in some other locality. But the "booming'1 idea is a new one in connection with pensions. Mr. Peters couldn't keep his seat un der this fire and be said that the word "boom" was not used by the representa tive, but by the newspaper. But he did not deny that he and his colleagues were advocating increased pension ap propriations because they thought it would "boom" the interests of Kansas. We thank Mr. Clements for bringing the truth out. It may not stop the cur rent that is depleting the treasury and keeping the tax-payers poor, but it will let the people into the animus of the in creased appropriations. With the light thrown on, the people can applaud or rebuke as they see fit. There never was a time in the history of this country when the agricultural interests were so depressed or the farm er received so small a return upon his labors and his investments. This de pression exists not alone in Kan sas. It is seen in Vermont where farms arc deserted, It blights homes in Ohio which are covered by mortga ges, it brings sadness in North Carolina and in Kansas alike. It is everywhere, and its'blight is upon town and coun try. The farmers are organizing add seeking to discover the trouble, and to remedy it. In their perplexity, and in their poverty, come the Kansas Repub lican members, who say: "We have studied this q uestion. We see the needs of our constituents. They need more money. The way to make .times easier and money plentiful, is to increase the - pension appropriations," and at once they urge ;the increase on the ground that, it will. "BOOH" Kansas..

Last year the Scotch-Irish citizens of America organized in Columbia, Tenn. , the 4 'Scotch-Irish Society of America." Its objects are, 1, To write a history of the Scoth-Irish, who were the first to de clare independence of Great Brittain, so that their children may be educated in the great principles and achievements of the race; 2, To promote closer social re lations among members living in all parts of the country, thereby binding them together in strong bonds of friendship. The second annual Congress will be held in Pittsboro in May. Delegates are expected from all sections. If one should take out from American history the achievements of the Scotch-Irish, he would take away many of its best and brightest pages. This is especially true in North Carolina, where the mast sig nal and greatest act of the Scotch Irish race was witnessed when the men of Mecklenburg signed the Declaration of Independence. They have occupied high positions and been foremost in pa triotic deeds. The Chronicle hopes that North Car olina will be largely represented in the approaching congress, and that an invi tation will be extended to meet in 1891 in Charlotte on the famous sight of the signing of the Mecklenburg Declara tion. The whole State would join in the invitation, and making the stay of the visitors full of pleasure and interest.

CO. REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY. Greensboro North State, Rep. The Greensboro North State is not very good humor about the defeat of the Blair bill. It is not what was expected from a Republican Senate that had twice before voted favorably for the same bill. What makes this action of our noble Republican Senators look somewhat perfidious, is the fact that when they pasced the bill there was no hope of getting it through a Democratic House of Representatives. Now, that a Republican House is anxious to give the people National aid for education, the Senate takes the back track, and disap points the whole country. What has be come of the Chicago platform? Can it be possible that Congress is blind to the fact that the masses know that the plat form pledged the party to the passage of the Blair bill and repeal of the Internal Revenue laws particularly the tobacco tax? THE MONEY QUESTION. mi i Aoe opening oi new ana ncner, or the use of improved means for extract ing the metals may cheapen money i ne vaiue oi money, iiKe mat or any other commodity, is also affected in short periods by fluctuations of supply and demand. Prof. Francis Wavland. v ' It is cheaper in Kansas for the farm ers to burn corn than kerosene oil. It is no wonder that they are protesting against their Senators devoting all their time to the so called race problem while they are in poverty and distress. With such hard times we are not surprised that the farmers of Kansas should say "The people believe that the white citi zens of Kansas have some rights as well as the colored citizens of the South." dob iNGERSOLL say 8 he expects to smoke as long as he lives, and the At lanta Constitution adds that after that the Colonel will likely Bizzle.
