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)

nag an of Texas, may they ask each oth

Let the "booming" go on ! Let the
taxes increase ! Let rich men be pen

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
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

sum- or fy7,ao,yo. Amount per
month, $74,771,59. Average per day,
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

future will be due to the same cause. In

somr." so to speak. 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
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.. And
an administration and a policy that will
protect the weak, put its strong
arms around the falling, and 4 'endear
with equal and patriotic love every foot
of our soil, every State of our Union."

J. M. BROUGHTON,
THE SCOTCH-IRISH CONGRESS.
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
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.

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

It is cheaper in Kansas for the farm

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
