coveries in natural history and geology

tion to him and Was the beginning of
his career as an author which lasted for
forty-three years. He . had written
much on scientific and other subjects,
but the work which gave him the most
piominence was that published in
1859 entitled the "Origin of Species by
Means of Natural Selection," in which
he held that all forms of animal life are
developments from some lower form.
His theories advanced elicited warm
discussion in the scientific world. In
1871 he published his work on the "De
scent of Man and the Selection in Re
lation to Sex," in - which he undertook
to prove that man was a higher order
of development aower order of
animal, some "hairy" quadruped with
a tail and pointed ears, arboreal in its
habits," and from certain resemblances
he fancied he saw between min and the
monkey concluded that man must be
descended from the monkey. He was
not, however, the author of this theory,
for it had been advanced by some of
the ancient Greeks and by some mod
ern writers, but he wrote more elabo
rately than they and entered zealously
into the work ;of proving the correct
ness of their theories, adopting them
as his own. He was a careful, laborious
student, and an indefatigable worker.

THE SOUTH CAROLINA TRIALS.
The South Carolina political trials
have now been in progress for two
weeks at Charleston, before Judge
Bond, in the circuit court. The first,
the Acton cases, were disposed of the
first week by a verdict from the jury on
Saturday of guilty on the first count,
but not guilty on the others. The
Maysville cases were taken up last
Monday, and on Friday the argument
was closed and the case given to the
jury, whose verdiet has not yet been re
ported. As the jury in this case is com
posed of eleven Republicans and one
Democrat, the inference is that District
Attorney Melton will get such a ver
dict as he desires.
The conduct of Judge Bond in his
rulings, and of District Attorney Mel
ton to convict regardless of evidence,
law and justice, is a disgrace to the
court and to the government under
whose direction the prosecution is in
stituted and carried on. All the forms
of law are ignored in the selection of
jurors, Melton claiming the right, in
which he is sustained by Judge Bond,
to stand aside any citizen to whom he
may object without cause and select
his jury from such material as he may
see fit to place upon it Accordingly
the best citizens of the State have been
summarily set aside and juries selected
from known and pliant partisans, pack
ed juries in the full sense of the word.
Such trials are a shameful travesty
upon justice and a disgrace to the gov
ernment which permits them.
There is a remarkable connection be
tween these trials, the zeal with which
they are prosecuted, and the pending
contests for seats in Congress from the
State of South Carolina. It is political
considerations which inspire them and
not the desire to protect the sacredness
of the ballot of which they so hypo
critically and loudly prate. If the
purity of the ballot is what concerns
them they will have ample field for in
vestigation and prosecution in any of
the Northern States they choose to light
upon, and Attorney-General Brewster
need go no further than his own State
of Pennsylvania and city of Philadel
phia to keep his subordinates occupied
for the balance of their: official terms.
But they are not hunting for election
frauds on that side of the line.
Mr. Best's Mortgage.
The Raleigh News and Observer thus
refers to the ten million mortgage given
by Mr. Best on the Midland Railroad.
We think there must be some mistake
about the figures :
If Mr. Best has mortgaged the Atlan
tic and North Carolina Railroad and
the property thereto belonging, no
greater rights could be conferred on
the mortgagees than the mortgagor
possesses under his contract with .the
company. It was to be expected that
some arrangement would be made by
Mr. Best to obtain money by a mort
gage to build the work he has agreed to
construct That is the way railroads
are usually built But then, Mr. Best
has put a mortgage upon thi3 property
far beyond its possible value. There is
no road now, and the shadowy possi
bility of one on paper does not justify
a very large mortgage. Were the road
completed from Goidsooro to baiisbury
a mortgage of even $3,000,000 would be
unreasonable, and more than the pro
perty would bear. The net receipts
would not be $180,000, and the property
could not pay interest on $3,000,000.
The interest on $10,000,000 is $600,000,
and it is sensational to talk of the road's
earning that amount even with the
Western North Carolina thrown in.
