THE PENSION WAN I A.
While an effort is being made by
some Kepresentatives in Congress to
amend the Pension Act and repeal the
features under which so much fraud
has been perpetrated, a sort of pension
mania seems to have taken possession
of some of the honorable gentlemen.
For instance, old bills have been re
vived for pensioning the survivors of
the Mexican, Black Hawk and other
wars. New bills have been introduced
granting additional pensions to the
Union soldiers and sailors of our civil
war. One, brought forward by Mr. Van
Voorhis, of New York, proposes to give
to each Union soldier who was confined
in any Confederate prison during the
late war the sum of one dollar for each
day of such confinement. Another, by
Mr. Musgrove, of Pennsylvania, pro
poses to give to each soldier or sailor
pnnfinAd in Confederate Drisons for a
period of six months a pension of eight
dollars per month, the pension to date
back to the day of discharge of said
soldier or seaman. One dollar per month
more is to be given to each soldier or
sailor for each additional month he was
held a prisoner. Mr. Houck, of Ten
nessee, has introduced a third bill to
extend the pension laws to all civil offi
cers injured while enforcing the reve
nue laws, and also to grant pensions to
the widows and helpless children of all
officers killed in the enforcement of
those laws. A fourth bill, introduced
by Mr. Ford, of Missouri, provides for
the payment of bounties to the colored
troops serving in the war, and also to
the heirs of such as were killed in the
war or have since died. This bill, ac
cording to the New York Times, would
put 93,441 additional names on the pen
sion list. Under the imprisonment
pension bill introduced by Mr. Van
Voorhis. it is estimated that it would
cost $54,000,0oo to carry out its provi
sions. Under the Musgrove bill the cost
would be $459,600,000 to pay the benefi
ciaries under the act up to July, 1SS2.
How many more of this class are to
be introduced we have no means of
knowing, for it seems that a good many
of the distinguished gentleman who oc
cupy seats in Congress entertain the
idea that the very best thing to do with
the people's money is to give it away in
While they are on that business lest
they overlook some deserving person
we suggest that a pension be voted to
the heirs (if they can be found) of the
man who invented the wheel-barrow.
He was a public benefactor, and no
country is more indebted to him than
the United States. " There is no telling,
in fact, how much we are indebted to
the wheel-barrow, which, unpretending
as it is, is in all probability the progeni
tor of all other wheeled concerns. Its
biographer, we know, does not claim
this for it, but that is attributable, per
haps, to his modesty. The wheel-barrow
is a power, and to-day without the
blowing of any trumpets, is conspicu
ously engaged in preparing the way in
all parts of this country for that boss of
all wheeled institutions the locomo
tive which though fussy and noisy,
lias done so much to convert this Re
public from an inhospitable howling
wilderness into an enlightened land,
where lager beer can be got at five
cents a glass. Does this not present a
claim to the average Congressman?
The heirs of Christopher Columbus,
why are they forgotten? Had not
Christopher's excursion been suspend
ed by running afoul of this continent,
none of these gentlemen would now
enjoy the privilege of sitting in Con
gress to vote pensions to anybody. They
owe a debt of gratitude to Chris, and as
they can't reach him at present to re
pay it they should hunt up his orphans
and give 'em a pension.
It would be proper, also, for them to
show their appreciation of De Soto for
discovering the Mississippi River, which
has opened up such a fine field of specu
lation for the lobby and for Congress
men who are on the make. If the Mis
sissippi hadn't been discovered, they
would never have found the where
abouts of the beautiful meandering
Fever River, upon whoso picturesque
bank3 the antique city of Galena nes
tles. They would never have discover
ed Galena, and then where would Gov.
Dick Yates have found Grant to crush
the "rebellion," and the war might still,
be racing. This would have knocked
the bottom out of the whole pension
business. They owe a debt of gratitude
to Mr. De Soto, which they should pro
ceed forthwith to liquidate. As his in
come is probably sufficient where he
now holds forth, and it would be diffi
cult to find him, the pe'nsion might be
conferred upon his children if they
have not emigrated and gone to locate
with the old man.
We might enlarge Urn list of benefac
tors by adding to it the discoverer of
the national game of draw-poker, which
has given America no little celebrity,
and has solaced the lonely hours of
many an illustrious Congressman ; the
inventor of ham sandwiches, which
decorate and gladden the American
lunchboard ; the constructor of the lu
cifer match, which has thrown so much
light upon the land ; the discoverer of
kerosene, which has not only reduced
gas bills, (and gas is something in which
Congressmen figure) but sheds general
illumination and sends many souls to
glory ; the architect of light bread.whicb.
has robbed the American biscuit of it3
terrors, and last but not least the dis
coverer of the game of base ball, walk
ing matches, bicycles, roller skates, Bo
logna sausages, chewing gum, centen
nials, and a host of other worthy insti
tutions, which have conferred more or
less distinction upon our beloved coun
try and placed more or less of her fifty
millions of people, regardless of age,
sex or condition, under lasting obliga-
tions. Let them be remembered, by all
means, when the pensions are being

The announcement that Col
Johnston, of Charlotte, and cape. Chas
Price, of Salisbury, had undertaken to
make a plunge into "indepen dent poli
tics, was first published in the columns
of this paper, and of course gi veil to
our readers as a matter of news. We
concede to them the right to formulate
their own political dogmas, from their
own standpoint, and we have stood
ready and willing at any and all times
to correct any erroneous impressions
that may have gone outif aa, h

rnve been freely offered the use
of our columns,and as yet the quasi de-
nial of Col. Johnston first published in
another newspaper, but copied by us
as a matter of justice, has been the
only response so far. This we might
say to Col. Johnston is far from satis
factory to his frienda, but that is a
matter entirely for his consideration
and not ours
We have not, and shall not, at least
not now, join in the crusade that is
being made in the State press, and no
tably give endorsement to such articles
as appeared in this week's Statesville
Landmark in regard to both Johnston
and Price, until there shall be greater
cause for party grievance. Instead of
driving these gentleman out of the par
try we would much prefer to have them
remain, and if reform is necessary, help
to carry out that reform, rather than
see them go over to the enemy, even
if they carry nobody with them. Is
sues may arise in the near future which
will be likely to demand the best talent
and the coolest heads within the party,
and if so wouldn't it be well to listen
to the ideas to be advanced by indepen
dent thinkers, before thay are hung,
drawn and quartered?
Of Capt Price, we know but little,
except that we believe he has been a
consistent Democrat His espousal of
the anti-prohibition question last fall
was a matter which he had the right to
decide for himself, and we denounce
now, as we denounced then, the idea
that it was a political question, or that
to oppose the measure was undemocrat
ic. In fact the individual right to de
cide that question was and is the very
essence, so to speak, of democracy.
We differed with Mr. Price then but we
didn't differ with him as a democr.it.
We have no apology to make for our
course, nor do we demand any from
him. It was not a political question,
and the man who attempts to make it
so in future will soon find that he has
engaged in an up hill business, as he
will experience from both parties.
Col. Johnston took the same view of
the matter, but we do not think that
this makes him liable to democratic
censure. He may have experienced a
change of heart, and he may renounce
his old political associates, but he has
not gone so far that repentance may not
yet save him. Of course he don't ask
us for this advice, but if he will read an
extract from the North State, the lead
ing Republican newspaper in North
Carolina, published in another part of
this paper this morning, it is likely that
he may give the subject of a political
summersault, some serious reflections.
Whatever else may be said of him
until now, at, least, he has always been
found in the ranks of the democracy
and contending for democratic princi
pals. He has been firm in his adhesion
to the party perhaps, when he might
have1 made it profitable in a political
point of view, to have been found
on the other side. We do not know that
any man ought to be praised for having
done his duty, but we do know that to
abuse a man is not the way to convert
him, or to bring him back into the path
of political rectitude, if perchance he
may havg temporarily strayed there
from. Let us wait, brethren of the
press, until "crop time."
WHERE ARE WE, ANY WAY?
The telegraph brought us the follow
ing item of information late yesterday
evening, whieh we publish verbatim,
merely venturing to ask the question to
be found at the head of this item:

the former inquired of the court in re
spect to the form of his bill of excep

to except specifically or whether a gen

Cox stated that under the practice of
the court he would have to except spe
cifically. Scoville then stated that he
had intended to file his motion for a
new trial, but he would like to have
until Monday. The District Attorney
objected, and Scoville stated that in
that case he would file his motion this
afternoon in the Clerk's 'office. The
District Attorney asked that the court
assign Tuesday next for the hearing of
the argument upon tne motion out up
on representations from Scoville that
he would scarcely be able to enter upon
the argument at that time, the court
declined to fix a day at present.
