ing on the same subject from the At
lanta Constitution of J Tuesday, which
will eive some idea of the proportions
that this business is assuming, and what
is expected to be accomplished:
Southern land syndicates are becom
ing numerous in New York. London,
Boston and Amsterdam. Sir E. J . Heed,
representing English investors, and
Dr. Jacobus Westheim, of Amsterdam,
representing investors in Holland, have
just bought two millions acres of land
in Florida, and Messrs. Phillips, Mar
shall & Co., of London, have bought
1,300,000 acres in Mississippi. The Mis
sissippi purchase consists in good part
of levee lands in the Yazoo delta. A
Nashville syndicate holds 100,000 acres
in Tennessee and Mississippi, and
scarcely a commercial paper is without
its advertisements of Southern-land

that they are at the bottom of some oi
these large land speculations; but
whether they are or not, the investment
of money by capitalists in southern
lands shows that far-sighted men begin
to appreciate the possibilities, of the
South. It shows that the- Softth is to
be filled up with people by means that
have long been effective-ih .turning peo
ple to the States of the Northwest ; for
the land syndicates and the railroad
syndicates working together can readi
ly accomplish what even great States
cannot, no matter how much they may
These land syndicates have some un
pleasant features. For many years their
colonists will practically be but tenants
and all the money mat can De wruuK
from the land will be sent away, leav
ing the colonists a3 poor as cnurcn mice.
But the tenancies will some time be
ended, and then the south will have
gained a population that is acclimated
both in regard to climate and method
of farming. It would be better of
course, if our large landholders could
sell their surplus land directly to men
who want to make new homes; buta3
this seems to be impracticable on ac
count of the efforts oLwestern railroad
companies, we must accept the next
best thing, and that is found in these
large land syndicates. When they have
broken a path to the wild lands of the
South, the necessary process of subdi
vision can doubtless be carried on all
over the South without the interven
tion of middlemen. The syndicates, in
other words, seem to be steppin&stones
to population and prosperity ; file west
has them in the shape of land-grant
railroad companies; and we want to
see the two sets divide the tide of im
migration. The southern syndicates
have many advantages, and if they dis
play equal enterprise aud skill we have
no fear of the result.
Principal among the colonization
agencies will be the railroad?, which
being backed by strong capital as most
of them now are, will in their own in
terest foster immigration. To them,
more than to any other cause, was the
rapid filling up of some of the Western
States and territories due, for with an
eye to business they sent their repre
sentatives to Europe among the people
from whom the immigrants were drawn
and made arrangements to settle them
on the lands of the companies which
they represented. We take it that the
Southern railroad companies will have
the sagacity to do the same thing. The
Southern Pacific has led the way ana" is
offering special inducements to immi
grants to settle along that line. Others
will follow and we shall be disappoint
ed if the near future does not witness a
heavy influx of industrious, thrifty peo
ple into our sunny Southland.
THI2 SUPHEMK COUHT DECISIONS.
We publish in another column this
morning a number of Supreme Court
decisions prepared expressly for Tiie
Observer, and at -our expense. They
have not even been given to the public
printer, and they will consequently ap
pear fresh, bright and newsy to our
legal readers, if' not to anyone else. It
is theory of the management of this
paper to publish such news as will
make the perusal of our columns not
only newsy but indispensable. It is be
cause of this th;vt we have been at
some trouble to have these decisions
reported at the very earliest opportu
nity. They are prepared by a young
lawyer of decided talent, and teported
especially for this paper. It is an ex
periment, but if it works well we shall
Heavy Failure of n. Plttkburg And
Mew York Firm.
Pitvsburo, Pa:, Jan. 11. For some
days there have been rumors of the
financial embarrasmentof Simons, An
derson & Company of Pittsburg and
New York, one the largest firms in the
country. Yesterday their troubles
took a new turn, the merchants and
manufacturer's banks ot this city levy
ing an execution for $317,000, and Don
nell, Lawson and Simpson of New
York, one for $170,000. The firm have
been hampered by the loss of the Har
get forgeries in connection with the
.Brooklyn bridge, expense of new works
and other thin gs. Their assets are 1,
000,000, and their liabilities nominally
$1,600,000; $1,000,000 of this is in first
mortgage bonds and the balance in
notes held by Pittsburg banks ; except
ing $100,000 held by New York firms.
another one will be trotted out in a day
or so. But the contest that now wax
es warm here and which is the occasion
of this gathering of the legal lights, is
the vacancy caused by the death last
Friday of J udge G. W. Brooks, judge
of the Eastern District of North Caro
lina. It is a fight for the dead man's
shoes that has enlisted the best endeav
ors of some of the leading Republican
lawyers in the State. Hardly had the
breath departed from his body before
candidates for the vacancy were on tne
wain, making for the capitol city. The
place, in a pecuniary view, is a good one.
it is a life position, pays $3,500 salary
per annum and the duties are compar
atively light. Among the candidates,
all of whom are on the ground, are
.TndPfi Faircloth of Goldsboro. Ex-Con
gressman Russell of Wilmington, Judge
Buxton of Fayetteville, Judge Seymour
of Newberne, Judge Moore, and Judge
C. W. Grandy of the first Cong region
al district. Mr. L. W. Humphrey of
Goldsboro, is not a candidate a3 has
been reported, and beyond desiring to
see the best man win.takes no interest in
the fight. It is a little early in the con
test, yet, to predict a result ; in fact the
fight has hardly had time to develop,
but it now seems that the judicial er
mine will be worn by.one of three men.
These are Russell, Faircloth, and Sey
mour. If at this time the chances are
in favor of any one more than another
it would seem that Russell is that man.
R. M.Douglas has had quite an event
ful career as marshal of the Western
District of North Carolina. Not a few
attemuts have been made to have him
removed, but until now he has re
mained serene and bobbed upright
side with care every time. The fact
that he was the son of his father has
had much to do with his retention, and
the fact that no good man could be
found to take his place, doubtless had
its weight. Dougla3 bears the repu
tation of being honest, but his inatten
tion to the duties of his office has been
the subject of much regret among those
who wished him well. For this reason
his accounts have several times been
found in quite a confused state and
subjected him to criticism, per
haps unjust These apparent de
linquencies have not passed unob
served by rapacious North Caro
lina ReDublicans who can sight an
office as far off as a hound can a fox'o
trail. Col. W. F. Henderson, of Lexing
ton, has not been asleep. His weather
eye sighted the marshalsbip and he saw
an opening, Down he came to Wash
ington, and from this time on the con
test for the place is likely to be anima
ted. Douglas, it is understood, desires
-to retain his position as a follower in
the camp, and does not propose to
'down" at the beck or call of any one.
What a day may bring forth is uncer
tain, (except the influx of North Caro
linians, which with death and taxes are
the only certain things in the world)
but unless old politicians are mistaken,
"wool will fly in a short time.
The presence in this city of so many
prominent Republicans from all sec
tions of the State is an excellent oppor
tunity for them to talk over the line of
policy to be pursued in the next cam
paign. No formal conference has been
held for this purpose, but a general in
terchange of views regarding leading
State and national issues, has been had.
It seems to Le the impression among
the leading Republicans here that the
next campaign will be fought on the
same line that it has been for the past
few years. The question of electing
county commissioners by the vote of
the people a short time ago was thought
to be an issue that would appeal to the
sympathies of the people, but it is now
believed that the Legislature will re
peal this law, and thus deprive the Re
publicans of any political capital they
might hope from that quarter. If they
re to be believed nothing would please
them better than to go before the "peo
ple on that issue. Col. Keogh says that
with that issue the Republicans would
sweep the State, but as it is they will
win. In some quarters it is believed
that the question of abolishing internal
revenue will figure largely in the State
canvass. Of course the Republicans
are greatly opposed to this, but they do
not apparently fear the issue. In fact,
they rather welcome it, and one of the
most prominent men here said a few
nights ago that if that question was
sprung, while it might take sdme few
votes away from the Republican party,
it would be the gainer in the end, as
nearly all the large distillers are Dem
ocrats, Who are opposed to abolishing
the internal revenue tax. They might
submit to a slight reduction without
opposition, but when it came to doing
away with the tax altogether, they
would as one man arise and protest
against it. From this element he thought
his party would gain more votes than
it would lose.

Postmaster General Howe, who suc

cian, who owes his place more to his
fealty to party than any ability he may
possess. He was sworn In by an old
employee of the department, who has
performed a similar service for 18 post
masters general. Judge Lawrenson,
the employee in question, entered the
Baltimore postofflce department in 1834,
when Gen. Barry, of Kentucky, was

Ortb, of Indiana, offered a resolution
instructing the committee on civil ser
vice reform to inquire into the expe
diency of providing a mode different
from the present for the appointment
of committees of the Houe, with leave
to report at any time.
The Speaker holding that the resolu
tion related to change of rules stated
that it would be referred to the com
mittee on rules.
To this reference Orth objected and
moved that the resolution be referred
to the committee on civil service re
form. On division this motion was lost 55
to 87, but Orth demanded the yeas and
nays; this motion was defeated, yeas
85, nays 139, and the resolution was re
ferred to tne committee on rules.
The polygamy debate came up again
on an attempt by Haskell, of Kansas to
firesent a privileged question, the reso
ution which he failed to have consid
ered yesterday. It was finally decided
by a vote 109 to 139 that no question of
privilege was involved yn the resolu
tion. The committee on postoffices and post
roads reported favorably responding to
a call on the Postmaster General for
detailed information in regard to mail
transportation since March 4th, 1881.
Further committee reports were then
called. The committee on appropria
tions reported a bill making an appro
priation of $540,000 for final expenses of
the tenth census. Referred to commit
tee of the whole.
Hiscock gave notice that he would
to-morrow ask to have the bill consid
ered. The committee on the District of Co
lumbia reported back tbe bill to incor
porate the Garfield memorial hospital.
Placed on the House calendar.
Burrows, of Michigan, asked leave to
introduce and put on its passage a bill
defining the qualifications of territorial
delegates. It provides that no person
shall hereafter be admitted as a dele
gate from any territory who shall not
have attained the age of 25 years, and
been for seven years a citizen of the
United States, and that no such person
who is living in bigamy shall be eligi
ble to sit in the House as such delegate.
Armfield, of North Carolina, and Sin
gleton, of Illinois, objected, and Bur
rows stating that he had mistaken the
sentiment of the other side, gave notice
that he would introduce the bill again
Willis, of Kentucky, offered a resolu
tion calling on the Secretary of War for
Information as to what additional work
is necessary at the falls of the Ohio
rver to complete the improvements
Robeson, of New Jersey, introduced
a bill to declare certain lands hereto
fore granted to railroad companies for
feited to the United States. A contest'
arose as to what committee the bill be-,
longed, whether to the committee on
?ublic lands, or the committee on the
acific railroad. Pending a decision,
the Speaker laid before the House a
number of executive communications
transmitting information from the de
partments, also a memorial of the Gen
eral Assembly of the Presbyterian
Church, in reference to polygamy. Re
ferred. House at 3.30 adjourned
Senate. A number of petitions were
presented for a commission to inquire
into tbe liquor and alcoholic trade.
Nearly every Senator presented one or
more memorials on the subject.

women under tbe resolution of. the
House, as follows:
Laphan, Anthony, Terry, Blair,
George, Jackson and Fair.
At the end of the morning hour the
Sherman funding bill was taken up
and Vest addressed the Senate. He
claimed that the Democratic funding
bill of the last Congress could have
saved the people $15,500,000 a year's
interest on the public debt and that
this was prevented by the Republican
party. He said he was not attacking
the national banks, but he did attack
the vast power vested in them. He
condemed the legislation which had
given national banks the power to
control or expand the dedtat will. He
declared that the national banks have
grown in wealth and power to such an
extent that they do not intend to sur
render their charters or their existence
These banks can only continue with
the national debt and they don't propose
to have the financial debt paid off, be
cause it would wipe them out He in
sisted that the issue between the aggre
gated capital and the national banks on
one side and the people on the other is
now presented, and be arrayed himself
on the side of the people. He criticiz
ed Senator McPherson for his remarks
yesterday in behalf and in support of
national banks, and said that this was
not Democratic doctrine that the
Democratic party does not sympathize
with national banks.
Hampton from the committee on
military affairs reported favorably the
bill to authorize the sale of the military
barracks, etc.. in Savannah, Ga.
Anthony stated that on the 10th inst,
he would ask leave to submit a resolu
tion of respect for the memory of his
late colleague, Anthony E. Burnside.
Cameron, of Wisconsin gave notice
that on the 25th he would present
resolutions commemorative of the late
M. H. Carpenter.
Brown offered a resolution which
was laid over, supplying each senator
who is not chairman of a committee,
with a clerk.
After further remarks by McPherson
and Sherman upon the accuracy of the
statement of the latter that the 3 per
cents proposed by the vetoed bill of
last year .could not have been sold at,
Garland was awarded the floor.
Debate was suspended and after a
brief executive session adjourned at
The Senate confirmed the nomination
of Jack Wharton to be U. S. marshal
for the Eastern District of Louisiana,
