FRIDAY, JANUARY4. 1879,, ,
. RAILUOiD LEGISLATION.' f
; A bill to regiflate the tariff of charges
on freight by railroad companiea "so as
to provide Against discrimination has
been introduced in "the i . Lfegislature
That discrimination is now practiced by
railroad companies against wayfstations,
these having to pay more, sometimes,
for the same freight than j terminal
points situated further from the point
of shipment, is a fact which cannot be
successfully denied ; but a member
made a wise suggestion upon: the intro
duction of the bill, in saying that the
measure is one which requires consid
eration. If there is any one phing that
the average legislator knows less about
than another it is the railroad problem,
particularly so much of it as relates to
. the carriage of and charges upon
freight; and any slip-shod legislation is
liable to leave the matter much worse
than it was found. The South Carolina
Legislature, in acting upon a similar
- bill, furnished a striking instance of.
how a dignified body may "put its foot
in it" and never learn that it has
blundered until it is too late, j It enact
ed a law at the session, we believe, be
fore the last the essence of which was
that railroads having their bracks in
South Carolina might charge' $1.00 per
100 fts. for transportation, of freight
over 100 miles of road, or if it was pre
ferred, might charge at the rate of so
much perhaps 15 cents per cubic foot
for 100 miles, and proportionally less for
a lesser distance. The different classes
of freight were not taken into account
nd no provision was made for the
charges for transportation over 100
miles. Railroad men examined the bill
and found that under its provisions
they might also charge $2 for 100 fts.
carried 200 miles, or $6 if it was carried
300 miles. It was found, further, that
while the roads could make but little
carrying lumber, lead or pig iron by the'
cubic foot, they might charge for the
transportation of cotton by the cubic
foot if they so elected and collect about
. five dollars and.seventy-five cents on a
bale carried 100 miles.
Thus the people were left entirely at
the mercy of the railroads, and the had
bill become a law and the railroads
chosen to exercise the rights vested in
them under it the constituents of those
law-makers would have been left in a
most pitiable plight. ; ;
We point this case out to our law
makers as a frightful example! IlAless
they are careful in what they do, they
'may, in attempting to bridle the "soul
less corporations," turn them entirely
loose and place the noses of the people
at the grind-stone. . . j
Hampton at the Soutii Carolina
State House. Gov. Hampton, since
the change for the better in his condi
tion, has been improving more rapidly
than tiad been hoped for. He has not
only taken a buggy ride into j;he coun
try, and arranged for a Florida trip,
but Wednesday he visited the State
capitol for the first time since the ac
cident. The Columbia correspondent
of the Charleston New and Courier tele
graphs'that paper concerning! the Gov
ernor's Jrisit to the State House :
He sat for some time in his office, to
gether with Gov. Simpson, and was
then called upon by the beads of the
departments and many other gentle
men, who hastened to pay their re
spects upon neanng or his presence in
town. He has not yet fully recovered
his strength, but is looking well, and is
snreiy, u siowiy, improving. ;
If Settle is with Him. The New
York Herald says :
Several ex-rebel soldiers sav that
Grant can carry Georgia, Florida, Lou
isiana, and both the Carolinias in 1880 if
Tom Settle, of North Carolina, is on the
A A. !i1 .1v
ucKec wun mm. j
Let us put it differently. Settle may
(possibly) be able to carry som of these
States in 1880 with Grant on the ticket
with him. It is a never-to-be-forgotten
fact that -"Mr. Buttles " as his dusky ad
mirers call him,, failed signally, to carry
one of these States in 1876 when he was
on a ticket by himself, so to speak. In
the event of future candidatures it will
not be Grant who will need Settle's help
but Settle who will need Grant's.
AJ1 of the State papers which have ex
pressed any opinion at all on .the sub
ject are decidedly in 1 favor of 1,he aboli
tion of this relic of Radical iniquity, the
State canvassing board. What will the
Legislature do about it ? In this as in
most things the old way is the best, and
the very name of canvassing or return
ing board is a stench in the nbstrils of
hone3t people. v
It is not too late to congratulate the
Lynchburg News upon having recently
completed its thirteenth volume. The
News is one of the ablest and broadest-
. gauged of all the Virginia newspapers ;

office and we wish it many yea'rs yet of
jrospenry ana useiumess.

It is said that it is, the .intention of
Speaker Randall to choke off all subsidy
schemes during" the present session. If
ne succeeds u win. entitle mm to a re
election to the Speakership,? and the

should demand it for
him.
"The convention of Northern settlers
that was held at; 'Charlotte," I says the
Wilmington' Star, "is attracting much
attention in every direction. Several
of our ablest exchanges from the South
had long editorials on the subject,'
Much of our space to-day is devoted
to Tuesday's proceedings in the. Legis
lature. Nothing could interesttne peo
ple more than reading of the; election
of the popular favorite to tne posiuyu
of his choice.

Immediately upon the assembling of

effect that the cipher dispatches were

that at one time he missed them from

statement such as that, he must have

the contrary, what he did say was to
show the impossibility that the dis-

borne out by another member of the
