deliberate corrupter of the ballot box
an enemy, to the election system as
contemplated by the constitution and
laws of the State.
This Legislature should also immor
talize itself by! an act to restrict the
privilege of voting to those only who
pay the taxes. ( "; What right has John

right has John Doe to vote on the

No Tariff Legislation.
News and Observer.
'It is pretty generally agreed among
those familiar with the problems of
taxation which affect this country that
the so-called tariff reduction wrought
bv the Republican Senate will not
lessen the taxes the people have to pay
one iota. It was explained, during the
campaign, to those within the Repub
lican party who favor tariff reform
(for there are such here and there)
that the tariff could best be reformed
by its friends, and so we have it that
those poor mans, necessities pearls and
attar of roses have been made cheaper
while there has been an increase of the
tax on woolen clothing to 90 per cent.

crease on other clothing, on metals,
lumber, provisions and so n. ' This
sort of reduction the people don't ap
Accordingly the Democratic House
will have none of the Senate abortion
The Democracy is on the side of the
people and against monopoly, against
the trusts and the ether combines. It
will accept no compromise from the
benefacianes of the robber tariff. It
will accept no makeshift at the hands
of the Republican leaders, who recog
nize tne popular aemana tor taritr re
duction and whose only anxiety is to
qutwit it toiseem-to comply with it
while they are all the while playing
into the hands of the northern monop
olists. There will be no tariff legislation by
the next Congress., It is impossible to
pass a bill really reducing tariff taxa
tion and so relieving the people be
cause of the opposition of the Republi
cans. It is certain that the monstrosi
ty got up by the Republicans, will be
rejected, as it deserves to be. It is but a
blind. It is intended onlv to throw
dust in the eyes of the people, who
realize sorely indeed the necessity for
revision and reduction of the tariff.
.t But the fight for genuine reduction
will go on in Congress and through
out the country. It represents the
leading issue,: though its chamvions
have recently met with a reverse. It
will be waged with ever increasing
earnestness and effectiveness. It is as
important to the country as was the
battle of liunker-Hiil. It is the strug-l
gle of the people for the maintainance
of their rights against the aggressions
of monopolistic combinations. And it
will result m a complete and perma
nent victory, j
Itns a fact that in the manufactur
ing centres mt the country, in .New
Jersey, Connecticut,: and the great
cities of New, En gland like Lowell, it
was the issue of revenue reform, that
made the most substantial gains for
Cleveland, in spite of the unscrupulous
bull-doziug practiced by the tariff bar-
it is on iv necessary ior tne cara-
j.r t i
paign of enlightraent with respect to
tariff tax oppression to be carried on
faithfully through the next four years
for the farmers generally as well as
the artisans to respond to its- teaching.
The protectionists will then be as much
surprised at the strong revenue-reform
vote in all the agricultural districts as
they were disappointed in November
at their failure to secure a larger vote
in the districts devoted to manufactur
ing. Neics-Obsercer. .

The present Legislature is weak In the
back, at least ou one question. Jf it i
afraid to tackle the ignorant and tne vi
cious element thatswnnns at our, polls,
tt would of course be far from passing a
dog law. The Wilmington Star calls it
the Farmers Legislature, and says 'it is
not much ou braving a popular majority.
The House has tabled a proposition to
amend the Constitution so as to compel
electors to pay tar. By this7 act they
reamrm the declaration that it is proper
and right that ignorant negroes that do
not pay oue cent of tax shall Elm .nave
the right to tax others. In the forum of
common sense, fairness and justice it will
ue nara to sustain that action. Again
the Star repeats its own conviction that
no mau should be entitled to exercise
the elective franchise who does not pay
a tax. Why should any man be burden
ed and afflicted with taxes levied by im
pecunioue and blind isnorance? Why
should a roguish rascal who navs no tax.
I and robs a henroost at night, who is as
ignorant of the duties and responsibilities

A railroad commission, if one is er
tablished, should not be used as an
agency for salving wounds the result of
political defeat. It will be no place
for disappointed politicians and the
places should not be distributed on tha
ground of party services. And again:
Some of the suggestions of names in
connection with these places are ridic
ulous. The railroad question is one of
the most intricate questions of the day
one may as easily master the tariff.
For the places on this- commission,
therefore, are needed the very ablest
men in the State. And they should be
not only able and practical men but
men of the best nerve and the highest in
tegrity. It is much easier to find men in
North Carolina for Governors and Sen
ators than to find fit material for
railroad commissioners. The places
demand such a combination of quali
ties as few men possess and the indi
