A BEAM AND A MOTS.
FOB THE PJSOrLB TO THUTK
We are glad tt we that the govern-
taken energetic steps to pre
farther outrage upon the Chinamen
to the West and bring to justice the
leaders ill the unprovoked massacre of
the ether daj. That was a most diaboli
at proceeding and no measures in the
wsj of punishment will be considered by
lb people too severe. Nobody approves
f the ruinous competition introduced
with the Pigtails bat while these almond-
individuals remain in the country

Just so! Nobody approves of the
ruinous competition introduced! They
don't hey? Does not North Carolina
approve methods more ruinous to
legitimate trade and labor than any
free competition of bone and muscle
could ever inaugurate? It certainly
looks thai way. These almond-eyed
celestial go into active competition
with the free labor of the West, and
by strict economy debasing it may
be and hard work, they accomplish
as much as the American laborer and
for s much less monetary considera
tion. This is very trying to the pride
and patience of American labor, and
especially so when such labor has be
come inured to the more extravagant
practices of our mode of living, (as
compared to that of any foreign labor;)
yet it is in full accord with the vital
and fundamental principles underlying
the establishment of our general gov
ernment. There is no help for it; no
redress in civil law, .and hence the
frequent resort to mob violence. Mob
violence is the baneful fruit of poorly
administered law, and is fast assum
ing proportions calculated to fill with
fear the bosoms of honest, law-abiding
and peace loving people. Naught save
the strong arm of the government
can check these more open and outra
geous manifestations of the foul spirit
of communism, while a wise and honest
administration of the laws must pre-1

payer a State prison where cWwicted
felons are maintained with the people's
money and engaged in the manufacture
of -articles, forming themost common,
necessary and important features of
trade, and by engaging them in the per
formance of the labor of such public
works as rightfully belong to the honest
fret laborers of the State.
Free labor cannot compete with
convict labor, and any attempt to do
to would prove suicidal. That is clear
enough. And yet the News-Observer
cannot approve the ruinous competi
tion of free labor against free labor. :
Let the people of North Carolina
clear their eyes of this 'beam1 before
they rear on tip-toe and peer over the
Blue Ridge mountains, across the broad
basin of the "father of waters" and
into the depths of the mines of remote
Wyoming to discover a 4mote1 in a
pigtail Chinaman's eye.
Put the convicts at work on the
Sttblic roads; grade ani macadamize

to our civilization, and relieve the tax
Jayers of a most unjust and onerous

the people. Honest, industrious citi

enjoyment of the fruits of their labor.
This is not accomplished so long as
convict labor blocks legitimate chan

TRAVEL OH TUE WESTERN NORTH CARO
The tide of travel over this popular
line has now turned eastward. For
months the west bound trains were
teeming with people who had left bu
siness and dull care behind and were
seeking rest and recreation in the many
cool retreats of the South, Brushy,
Blue Ridge, Cheowah, New Found,
Iron, Bald and Great Smoky moun
tains of Western North Carolina. Now
they are homeward bound; returning
with renewed strength, bronsed faces
and hearty appetites, They are good
humored and speak in unhesitating
terms of the health-giving qualities of
the climate, the purity ana freshness
of the water, the beauties of the flora,
the wonders of mineral deposits and
the granduer of the scenery, They go
to distant homes singing of this won
der land of ours, repeating the refrain
until throngs shall seek solace here
for every grievance flesh is heir to.
mi e it i j i
ine trains are run, ana it is a pleas
ure to mingle with the people who
travel. Traveling over the road last
week, among the passengers met was

they seem to prefer the country places.

HON. WALTER L. STEELE.
the best of humorists, (in addition to
being a statesman) was a passenger
and was, moreover, in a mood for talk
ing. In reply to a question bearing
on the prospects of his section, he
said that prospects were never better.
Crops are good and the people expect
better times. The purchasing power
of the people is greater now than for
several years gone by, and the mer
Seventy-five years ago, Sir, cotton
and indigo were the universal crops in
the river country. No sir, they do not
raise indigo now. A few old women
may have a patch among the garden
truck, but as I tell you, seventy five
years ago it was largely raised. They
got to bringing a better article from
India, and it run the native indigo
out. Speaking of indigo reminds me of
a speech that General Atlas Jones
Dargan. 4lfrom the river country," made
in reply to General James M. Leach, of
Davidson. It was during the war and
Leach was a candidate for a seat in
the Confederate Congress. He came
down to Anson County to make a
speech, and was sailing along between
wind and water, dodging everything
and committing himself to nothing,
when a man in the crowd yelled; 'who
are you for for governor; Vance or
Holden?' The General went right
along paying no attention to the ques
tion. Lnrectiy tne lenow yenea again :
who are you for for governor: Vance
or Holden?' This time General Leach
halted and said he reckoned he'd have
to tell, and he would iust remark that
he was for the man that was for him.
If Vance is for me, I'm for him, and
if Holden is for me, I'm for him, and
he proceeded with his speech. When
be got through the people yelled for
Dargan, "from the river country." Dar
gan got up, fumbling with his watch
guard, and said he : General Jeems Madi
son Leach's speech reminds me of an
incident which happened to me when a
boy. 1 was clerking lfi a store for a
man named Ball, down in Mississippi.
One day a woman came in and says
Have you got any good bluin'?
Says I, we have.
Says she, how can a body tell good
bluin'? I've been wan tin' to know for
a long time.
Just then another woman came in
and my customer put the question to
Can you tell good bluin'?
I jist can, I've been knowin' it this
long time, and if you will pay particu
lar attention to me 111 tell you precisely
how to do it. You take a lump of
blum' jist the size of a pat ridge aig,
mind you, no bigger'n no littler, but
jist the size of a patridge aig, and you
hold it between your thumb and two
fore fingers, jist so! (making the pro
per gesture) then you take a clair
glass and fill it jist half full, and no
fuller, of water; and you hold it in
your other hand, jist so! (gesture with
the other hand) then you hold that
lump of bluin' jist two and one half
inches above that glass, jist so! (ges
ture with both hands) then you let it
drap and if it sinks, or swims, and
b'amed if I haint forgot which, its
I've heard many a cheer, but the
shout that greeted old Dargan as he
finished that story beat them all.
Col. Steele said that he bought more
indigo than any merchant in North

by careful tests that the best indigo

GEN. BOB. RANSOM,
brother of Senator Ransom, got aboard
at Hickory and he and Col. Steete
made the jokes just hum. He said
that he was alarmed at the price of

them in times crone bv at three and a
half a dozen, and I used to send lotrbf

posed test in the courts of the constitu
tionality of the civil service law excites
interest among Republican office holders
here. The law has been strictly observed
in the departments. There has not been
a single violation of the act. A thousand
eager eyes are on duty night and day,
and to discover would be to publish the
fact to the world. Even the subterfuges
Which might be resorted to to circumvent
the statute or the civil service rules are
left untried. Every Republican clerk
and messenger is a spy upon Democratic
officers and it is impossible to remove,
appoint or promote without the most mi
nute particulars being known. The civil
service law was continually violated an-

I bureau, but there was no outcry made or
tto public criticism, because there waano
conflict of political faith. Those who
were Appointed or promoted contrary to
law were of the same political faith as
those who were in office. No spies were
oo gimrd. No Democrat expected to get
in and the loopholes were open on every
hand to those who were bold and unscru
pulous enough to tako advantage. Nev
ertheless a real live Republican clerk in
as hard to find as "the missing link."
They are all good Democrats or mug
wuniDS for the present. The very name
of Republican is hateful to them, and a
campaign Republican circular is treated
in the departments as rite, incendiary
and seditons. They spurn it !
But should the civil service law turn
out to be unconstitutional 1 Gods, what
a bowl will go up! What a rattling of
the dry bones !
Department clerks belonging to the
classified service have settled down to
the conviction that the law is here to
stay, and knowing that their stay is con-,
ditioual upon their efficiucy, they are
doing more work aud better work than
ever before. In other words they are do
ing a full days work every day in the
By way of illustration, and in proof
that idleness, loafiug aud inefficiency has
been the rule in the departments, the
writer can cite what has cume under his
own observation. In June last, when
your correspondent assumed his omchil
duties, the work in the Pension Division,
Third Auditor's office, was twelve months
in arrears. This work consists in audit
ing and settling Peusion agent's accounts.
These accounts nre rendered monthly,
aud last year covered an expenditure of
over sixty-five million dollars. When
the writer took chaige of this work, the
accounts, for June, 1384, were in process
of settlement. Every mail brought com
plaints from the different 18 pension
ageuts, that they were embarrassed by
the apparently inexcusable delay in au
diting their accounts. By August 31st
all the accounts in ai rear had been audit
ed, at this writing the pension division
has its current work in hand a condition
of things that has never been known in
the history ot this work. The pension
agents hare not been slow to recognize
the fact. The Des Moines agent, a Re
publican by the way, writes:
"I want to express in the warmest terms
"possible my high appreciation of the re
"form you have inaugurated. To me it
"hits been one of the most unaccountable
"things in my dealings officially with the
"government, why the auditing of pen
t'etoii accounts should be from one to two
"years in arrears, and I have looked up
"on it as little short of a monstrous wrong
'Surely every agent will feel profoundly
"grateful for your efforts in this behalf."
There arc 18 letters on file of similar
import. The delay has been inexcusable
and was the result of bad management.
The work has been done, aud well done,
without employ ing a single additional
clerk, and without rushing.
Department work runs in a well worn
rut and every effort at reform is stoutly
resisted. The old clerks have learned to
do the work one way, aud they know
only that way. They shudder at the
mere suggestion of improvement or inno
vation. But the old things are passing
away too slowly though surclj-.
