FlilDAY. APRIL 25.1879.
THE C05VEVTI0 TC-5I6HT.
Pursuant to the call of
a large nuiu-
ber of prominent and influential
7.ehs of Charlotte, a convention
will assemble in the court house this even
ing for the purpose of nominating acan
didate for the office of mayor for the
ensuing term. This convention has be
come necessary in order to settle the
rival claims of those who aspire to the
office, as well as to decide whether
there may not be another gentleman in
the community whom the people would
like to call to the position, f In tn;
deliberations tonight we trusts mere
will be no asperities or bickerings, fcuf.
that the irood sense and good judgment
nf the iieonle will select some man who?
is both capable and willing to assume'
the duties and responsibilities of the
office, and who will discharge those
duties with that zeal and fidelity which
should characterize the first officer of
tiienmnrllitlle'fiitVof Charlotte. Hie
office of mayor should be no sinecure.
There are earnest duties to discharge,
and good judgment will be required in
the man who is to stand at the helm
and ""uide our municipal ship in the
future. One of the matters likely to
come up during the year is the suit
broueht bv the Atlantic, Tennessee &
Ohio Hail road. aCainst the city , fori
forty thousand dollars' worth of bonds
subscribed to that road. These bond3
have been on interest eighteen years.
All the precedents in the recent; decis
ions of bur courts would indicate that
the ruling, whien it is announced, 7wi 11
be against the city. If this should 1e
the case it will require considerable
tact and sound economy on the pail of
our municipal authorities to meet the
case without overburdening the people
and without excessive taxation.
If the gentleman selected to-night is
a man who is calculated to inspire con
fidence in the people, that he will be
able to creditably "administer the
duties of his office, it -.will be well for
us all. We have before us the exam
ples of tax-ridden Memphis and Mobile,
whose respective city - governments
have fallen; into unworthy bands, and
who novf groan under the burdens im
posed by the courts of law in the
appointment of receivers. ' Let the
convention to-night keep these facts
before its eyes. Let every good, citi
zen feel impelled to attend, and help to
shape the policy of the incoming ad
ministration, by selecting the right
This article is not intended to influ
ence the action of the convention for
or against the interests of any candi
date who is in the field, or any other
who maybe suggested; but it is in
tended to show the -importance which
hedges about the action of the conven
tion. We demand that the convention
shall be free, fair and representative.
It should be so authoritative as to
command the respect of every good
citizen of the city, who has at heart
the interest or the welfare of the muni
cipality. The call having been spontaneous, as
well as general, the opportunity has
been offered for every voter to go into
the convention, and aid in dictating
who shall be the nominee. Whoever
fails to do this ought to be barred from
complaining if its action don't meet
his approval. '
The Observer to-morrow will
probably record the name of the
nominee of the convention, and the
mayor of Charlotte for a year hence.
We have sufficient confidence-in the
wisdom and intelligence of the people
who do the voting and pay tlie taxes, to
believe that lie will be a good man, and
worthy to wear the honors to be

ferred to the committee oa.pensions.
An unusually large gathering of
spectators was present on the meeting
of the Senate, the ladies'gallery present
ing an especially brilliant appearance
and the diplomatic gallery having a
fair number of occupants. Numbers of
prominent visitors, including many
members of the House, occupied seats
on theiHftr of the Senate attraction
evidently beibg adesirato hearlMr.
C oftkling speak on fthe arjby bill. Te
Hussion ofrthe Wallace resolution
occmpied the mbrnmghout, after waiKh
the army appropriation bill was talfen
up. Conkling began his remarks by
saying that of the 0235,000,000 of reve
nue collected during the last year by
the government $221,000,000 came from
twenty-seven States and $13,600,000
from eleven States Alabama, Arkan
sas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mis
sissippi tfoiih Carolina, fSouth Care
Una, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia oi
which $6,500,000 was from the tobacco
taxes of Virginia. Both Houses, he
continued, have now a Democratic ma
jority, and no proposition is heard to
change the existing revenue laws. This
vast revenue is collected to pay pen
ainna marta. nacessarv bv the rebellion,
to preservte the government and protect
the laws maae at in-suuiauio cauoc
To daVert it from the usejs to vich,the
people have dedicated it would be per
fidious. There is but one way by which
it can reach these objects by appro
priation. The constitution commits to
(Jonsrress only the discretion as to how
inuchfetdi be appropriate. Its eontj
manrl tn inake some abDromriatios am
imperative, t The refusal tojvote moneje
to defray the expenses of thediffereAf
branches or tne government was mere
fore unconstitutional. If members of
the judiciary or executive departments
failed to do their duties under the con
stitution, thev Tvsould ' be liable - to 'im-
noaphment - it members of theleeishv
tive branch were likewise amenable to
punishment for dereliction of duty.it
would be a braver if not less guilty act
to violate their exalted trust.
He said a resort to separate -bills
miffht even have cloaked the sinister
desism of the legislation and that view
would have been wise policy for the
other side. In the case pending the
face of the bill itself shows that the
legislation is not such as the executive
can rightly approve. It shows the de
sign to be to coerce the executive into
violatiug his sense of right in order to
permit the government to live. Thus
far the achievement of the Democratic
majority had been easy, but the trial
was yet to come. It would be more
difficult The party had got themselves
into a predicament and unless the ex
ecutive lets them out they will have to
back out He said: "Let the ruffianism
at the polls in the interest of the other
party cease and there would be no need
of further expense in executing the
Conkling spoke for three hours, his
speech in the main being an arraign
ment of the Democratic party and an
earnest support of the Federal election
laws. Gen. Sherman and A.torney
General Devens were among the num
ber of his attentive auditors.
A bill introduced to-day by Senator
Johnston proposes to give the consent
of the United States to the prosecution

I am never without It at home or abroad. It is
an antidote to indigestion. Uneasiness after a
meal or purging Is checked and the bowels regulated-
Its merits are attested by numbers of high
character, I have seen a '.'triedverythlng " djs
peptlc of fifteen years relieved by one dose.
Bev. Dn. Jeter, Broaddus, Dickinson (Bap.)
It is endorsed by the direct personal testimony
of men of national fame and of strictness of
speech. It is not too much to say that no medicine
ever had such support In Its favor as a specific.
The word of any one of the eminent divines who
underwrite this antidote to dyspepsia has deserved
weight Their united witness Joined with the ex
perimental use and approval of the preparation by
well-known paysicians, removes "all doubt. It is.
beyond question, a' wonderful therapeutical agent.
