ARTHUR GUARDED CONSTANTLY.
TUESDAY, JAN. 3, 1882.
A BIO SPECULATION.
The purchase some time ago by a
Philadelphia company of four millions
of acres of land in the State of Florida,
at the rate of twenty-five cents an acre,
was one of the largest land specula
tions we have heard of for some time,
and is panning out nicely for the par
ties interested. They have since sold
to ah English company two mil
lions of acres for as much money as
they paid for the whole tract and now
have two millions left to operate on for
profit. The programme of the English
purchasers is to construct railroads
through their territory and then estab
lish colonies, and as they are men of
large capital it is likely they will pur
sue operations on a grand scale and
make a handsome thing out of it.
The Philadelphians in addition to these
four million acres purchased have nego
tiated for another vast territory large
enough to make two or three fair sized
states which they propose to drain and
improve, giving the State one-fourth of
the property improved. To carry out
this scheme they propose to organize a
stock company with $10 shares, and as
an inducement to take stock they pre
sent every one who subscribes for ten
shares with a fee simple deed to forty
acres of such land as he may select.
They have gone into this in a business-like
way, and are now sending
their circulars containing their propo
sitions and plan of operation broadcast
over the country, and the probabilities
are that thev will be as successful in
working up this scheme as they were
in the management of the first pur
chase. They are business men, of un
limited capital, and know what they
are doing. With the money derived
from sales of stock they propose to dig
canals, build railroads and do such
other work as will develop the property
and fit it for agricultural purposes, to
which much of it cannot now be de
voted on account of inaccessibility and
extent Of swamps But with the
swamps drained, which it is said can
be done at a comparatively trifling cost,
they will have the most fertile lands in
the world, on which may. be grown
sugar, cotton, coffee, tobacco, tropical
fruits, in fact almost anything which it
is desirable to cultivate.
We call attention to these specula
tions to ask the question if private
individuals could go into the State of
Florida and discoder in these swamp
lands such a field for profitable opera
tion why could not the State of Florida
have done something of the same sort
herself? It is somewhat remarkable
that she never made any effort to turn
to account that vast region until a few
" Northern capitalists came along, made
an insignificant bid for it, which bid
was accepted without much ado, and
these few men became the purchasers
of One of the most princely domains
under the sun, and from which they
will in time derive millions of wealth.
It is true Florida will be benefitted
thereby, too, and largely benefitted, for
every acre redeemed and peopled, and
every mile of water-way or railway
which may be constructed will add
to her sources of income and wealth.
But for this she has, practically speak
ing, given away a territory larger than
two or three of our smaller States, sim
ply because she did not know the value
of the land she parted with or would
not incur the expense of developing and
In Louisiana, Mississippi, and other
Southern States, and here in our own
State, are .extensive tracts of land,
known as swamp lands, which are ex
ceedingly rich, but now valueless be
cause a portion of the year subject to
overflow, and yet many of these are so
situated that they might be reclaimed
and become magnificent farming sites.
We hear of no single instance where
the State in which these lands are situ
ated is making an effort to reclaim
them, each waiting probably till some
shrewd capitalist comes along, offers a
nominal price and has his bid accepted,
then dig some ditches, opens up some
water courses, and makes millions.
This is business and shows shrewdness
on the part of the men who go into it,
but not much on the part of the States
which pursue this short-sighted, give
away policy. The States can and should
develop all such property themselves ;
if they cannot, then perhaps it is well
enough to give it to some one who can,
" but it is no credit to a State to confess
that she can't do what a few level
headed individuals can do, and it is still
less creditable to her to never have
tried it. I
with its many predecessors to make up
the history of the past. It is said that
the future can only be measured by the
nast. because we have no means of
knowing what is ahead of us. With the
exception of the unprecedented drought
which fell to eur lot last summer, the
country has been reasonably prosper
ous, and the indications now are that
with ordinary seasons in future we are
approaching a period of extraordinary
prosperity at the South. Commenting
on this subject the Baltimore Sun says:
"Everywhere and in all States'" of the
Union is heard the hum of labor in
furnaces, forges, mills, factories and
workshops, with steady employment
and good wages to" all who have the
will to work, and with opportunities
for saving to those who are frugal and
thrifty. Never were our material pros
pects more assuring than now. The
country is being covered with a perfect
network of railroads, and the millions
to be expended on them must neces
sarily carry with them a vivifying in
fluence through all the multitudinous
channels in which trade and labor flows.
The opening up of the South, with its
splendid visible and latent resources, is
like the opening up of a new world. Its
mountains and valleys and plains are
now being linked together in bonds of
iron and steel, while in the current
year, and still more in tbe years to
come, it is destined to receive steady
accessions of population from without,
until ultimately its material prosperity
will compensate it in , manifold ways
for the sufferings it has undergone and
the losses it has sustained in the past."
We are no longer interested in the
past except as a matter of history, and
where the events of that past serve to
furnish guide boards to direct our
course in future. In the South this
means a great deal at this time. Catch
ing the inspiration of the hour our
course is to be marked by a system of
political economy such as has not been
seen in the past. The development of
our country, long delayed, will soon be
come an accomplished fact, and in the
near future we hope to see our old
State more than ever cut up into rail
road tracks, our mines developed, our
education advanced, our agriculture
improved, our manufactories touched
into new life, our commerce extended,
and in fact a new life dawning upon
and brightening up everything and
But aside from these things there is a
moral aspect that religiously belongs to
the beginning of the new year. Each
individual i3 a member of the body
politic, and he must need3 first regulate
his own conduct.
"Every first of January that we ar
rive at," wrote Chas. Lamb, "is an ima
ginary milestone on the track of human
life, at once a resting place for thought
and meditation, and a starting point for
fresh exertion in the performance of
our journey. The man that does not
propose to himself to be better this year
than he was last, must be either very
good or very bad indeed. Only to pro
pose to be better is something ; if noth
ing more than an acknowledgment of
our need to be so, which is the first
step toward amendment."
Detective Dor H Every Stp Ready
to Catch the Cranks,
Washington Dispatch In the St Louis' Republican.
The president and his private secre
tary left for New Yrk on the morning
train, accompanied, it is paid, but; with
out General Arthur's kno wlege, by three
detectives, who had been sent over from
New York at the instance or friends oi
the president, to guard him from the at
tack of any crank. It is not generally
known, but detectives have watched
General Arthur to a greater or less ex
tent ever since he was inaugurated as
the president. On the day that he was
driven to the senate to take the oath of
office in the vice-president's room the
two most skilful detective officers in
Washington accompanied his coupe and
guarded the door and approaches to it
until he was safely lodged in the Gray
It is known that the presence of the
officers to the extent that General
Arthur has known of it has not been
pleasant to him,. They have been de
tailed to accompany him at the instance
of friends, some of whom have thought
that at least until the Gniteau trial is
ended it would be well to be prudent
President Arthur, however, rides about
Washington freely without attendance,
and is known to have said that nothing
that he could do or that any man can
do can save a life from assassination.
There is no reason to think, however,
that there is anyone who wishes to do
personal harm to President Arthur, and
the presence of these detectives is due
only to the officious zeal of certain
Galveston News: The census re
turns show the necessity for more
school houses and compulsory educa
tion. The facts are developed that the
illiterate class produces, on the average,
thirty times as many paupers and ten
times as many criminals, according to
their number, as the class having a
reasonable common school education.
The only way to communicate these
facts to the illiterate is through the
GDITE.AV HOLDS A BCCiPTiON.
The telegraphic dispatches of last
nigut inform us that Guiteau held a
new year's reception in the jail yester
day, and that about two hundred people
called on him, a large proportion of
them being ladies, which adds another
strange chapter to this strange man's
strange history. Whether these people
went there to see and talk to the repre
sentative assassin of the age, actuated
by mere caprice, or to pay him a tribute
of respect we are not told, but it pre"?
sents itself to us none the less as a re
markable incident in the career of this
remarkable individual. A few short
months ago the land was in mourning
from one end to the other over the re
mains of his victim, and the belief was
prevalent that nothing but thiek walls
and ever-wakeful guards could protect
bim from the swift bullet of the aven
ger, but he has since from day to day
gone into court and there in the pres
ence of hundreds .of people sat more
likf a prosecutor tbanjone who was on
trial for his life, while these same peo
ple, composed we are told of the select
of Washington social circles, seem to be
entirely oblivious of the fact that he
was the slayer of the man over whom
they had shed their tears, and joined in
the mirth that his insane ravings or
smart remarks provoked.
Athens honored her illustrious citi
zens and sometimes gettiog tired of
honoring them ostracised them. The
Athenians were fickle; but the Athe
nians have their counterpart in the
sovereigns of America, who a few
months ago would have gibbeted Gui
teau on sight, and now not only have
forgotten the enormity of his crime, but
actually do him the honor to make a New
Year's call on him.
No wonder the man believes that the
"Deity," as he phrases it, is taking care
The Plymouth Riot Ended.
Raleigh News and Observer, 1st
The promptness and extent of the
measures taken for the repression of
this riot showed good results at once.
Yesterday we were able to publish
news from the "scene or. the conmct
which showed that the troubles were
virtually at an end. Yesterday evening
a telegram was received from Governor
Jarvis, at Plymouth, in which he stated
that he arrived there at 4 o'clock Friday
afternoon; that in Saturday's fights
and rioting four men were wounded,
one of whom has since died. The posse
of Sheriff Spruill had made the arrests
before the troops reached the scene.
The telegram further states that every
thing is now orderly and quiet, and that
the troops will at ones return.
It was thought here that the bulk of
the negro rioters would take to the
swamps around Plymouth. One of
these, Peacock Swamp, is within a mile
of the town, and is said to be well nigh
impenetrable. It was also thought that
the troops would hunt out the offenders.
Quite a number of Raleigh people know
Plymouth well. They are old soldiers
and they were down there in the year of
grace 1864 when the famous Confederate
ram, "Albemarle," made things lively.
There was then hard fighting in and
around the town, and an old campaigner
yesterday remarked that he had seen
more dead men lying around the court
house there than were apt to be killed
in a dozen later campaigns.
The Norfolk papers give but little
news of the affair, drawing upon us for
most of their information. Many of
the rioters were disarmed. The five
ringleaders were sent overtoEdenton
on the steamer Juniata. But Matt
Wilson, the leader of the rioters, is vet
at large. Mack Butler, the wounded
man who died, had his skull crushed
with a club. The rioters, it is said,
made threats of burning the town and
of taking the lives of prominent citi
zens. The following is a copy of the tele
gram calling out the Washington Light
Infantry, of Washington, Captain D.N.
Bogart, commanding :
"Take your company to Plymouth at
once and report to the sheriff or mayor.
Use such force in restoring peace and
law in aid of the civil authorities as
may be necessary.

Washington Corretpondenoe Baltimore Ban.
The House select committee on the
alcoholic liquor traffic is composed of
nine members, of whom seven are un
derstood to be in favor of prohibitory
measures. The National Temperance
Society has been endeavoring for years
to secure restrictive legislation from
Congress on this subject. Two or. three
times bills with this object in view has
passed the Senate, but have not met
with a favorable reception in the
House. In all the votes and debates in
the two Houses it has been seen that
the republicans were almost solidly in
favor of restrictive legislation and the
democrats almost solidly opposed to it.
The democrats being in the majority in
the House accounts, therefore, for the
failure to act on the Senate- bills sent
to that body, or on bills introduced by
individual members of the House with
the same object in view. Now that
the republicans have full control of the
House and practical control of the
Senate, those interested are expecting
that the House committee above allud
ed to will soon report a bill to provide
for a commission to investigate the
whole subject of the liquor traffic, with
the ultimate object in view of adopting
such legislation as will, so far as was
Sossible for the National Legislature to
o it, tend to suppress or reduce the
traffic, and as the two houses are now
constituted there is thought to be a
strong probability of the passage of
such 8 bill. Whether Congress can
really enact any legislation effectual
enough to abate intemperance and re
duce the enormous traffic in alcoholic
liquors admits of much doubt, judging
from the experience of local legislation.
Where Congress would find the sources
to supply the enormous revenue re
ceived from distilled and fermented
spirits, amounting for the last fiscal
year to $80,000,000, is problematical,
although, as contended by the advocates
"of suppression of the traffic, it may
cost the people of the country many
times that amount in industry, in
health, in length of life, in taxes, in the
maintenance of the law, in provision
for poor-houses, penitentiaries and hos
