were the year before Ve have ofiered
to ptict any explauhtion .that either the
DoctoV or the Statesville American can
make of this fact. 1 : ' ! - !
In reply to this the Ameriean harrowa
its soul with the stkrtliiig query, 'Can
the -Hew end Observer be honest in its
statements-?'. ' - i H ' j
We answer' that independent of every
other consideration, newspaper haviug
such intelligent readers as the Xews-aad
Observer cau not allprd to j be otherwise
than accurate. Occasional typographical
errors will occur j occasionally the best
source of information opened to an editor
are themselves only meagre and imper
fect ; but what apearT in a newspaper
must be as ti ne and as perfect and as rV
liable as diligence can make it. Mistakes,
however, will sometimes joccurj but' no
willful misstatement can be tollerated in
a newspaiKT. ! :
Such figures as tile -lienca' indulges
in would kill a newspaper outright among
intelligent readersV that the American
survives is by no means in conflict. with
this doctriue.-V'. j i ;
The American isf altogether correct in
supposing that t wV bad! Commissioner
Ranmi report before us when we prepar
ed the atatistics of Dr Mott's I district
and the statements !to -which it objects
are Commissioner Raum', not jours. It
is nouo of our business to teach the editor
pi the American arithmetic; and! we shall
not try. But his figuring only! puts Dr.
Mott in a worse fi than before.1 2

is 7ii) gallons, jmakiog a diflerence of
6,702 gallons, represeu t i ng a tax of $6,031 .
Now, how aiMu that t Was that $6 -031
paid or was it; not? Mr. Ranm says
that the G,702 of spirits ire not on hand,

entered j n to a dicker, by the terms which
they are to parade themselves as 'inde

isting party, and after that in full and
undented fellowship with the. Republican
party. , : . .;. ,
We are for tcaribg the mask from the

New Mexico is asking to be admitted
as a btate. It has J 10,505 population.
Of these 9,772 are Indiana. We agree
with the able and influential New York
Times thai the Congress "should make
bqrt.work of the attempt to admit" tliis
new candidate for Statehood. The fol
lowing gives information by which to
guide one to af safe conclusion. The
Times says :
"The majority of the population is of
the mongrel breed known as "greasers."
Thia mixture is of His'pauo Mexican, ne
gro, and Indian stopk, A correspondent
of the Times describes the compound race
as made up of the blood f of the Apache,
negro, Navajo, wjhite horse thief? Pueblo
Indian, and old jtime frontiersman with
the original Mexican stock. There is a
great gulf fixed between thia mixed race
and the American settlers. In language,
religion, traditions, and mental charac
teristics, these two elements of popula
tion are wholly dissimilar.
The bare suggestion of a proposition so
palpably absuKtl ought to coiurince Con-
gresa that somewjicre in the scheme lurks
a disreputable job." j -

venient season.' ; .Too much mongrel is
