our hill sides, seamed with coal and
iron in easy proximities nnd inexhaust
jble quantities, are beginning to press
jnvtr advantage home in another direc
tion. Already many Pennsylvania
mills, burdened with inferior- ores and
which lie too far from ,coal, have found
that they cannot Ji ope to keep (he
field against the better circumstanced
urn aces of the South. Therefore
they have stopped their fires, perhaps
fieyer to light them again., while we
are daily adding new plants 4 every
description and increasing the capacity
f the old. The drift of the establish -
ments that work the pig-iron into tire
.shapes of commerce is setting south
ward also. It is now an established
and fully recognized fact that the
South can produce her iron even cheap
er and to a better advantage than
England can. Of a consequence,
therefore, is the migration of the man
ufactory and mill to the immediate lo?
cality of the sources of cheap material
supply. Low priced iron is a condi
tion, not a sentiment, which the manu
facturer must confront. Either he
must conform to it or combat M in n
profitless losing fight from the incep
tion. For Hiis reason he moves south
ward. Still there is one disadvantage under
which which we labor. Freight
charges, except iu favored districts,
throughout the South are at a much
higher average than those paid, by
northern and western men. This can
not continue, of course, but while it
remains it is no inconsiderable handi
cap. As an instance of how it mili
tates against us, we cite the case of tl e
lumberman who came to our own
county, and who, after pronouncing
the Yadk in a splendid stream for rifl
ing timber, shipped three trial logs to
northern markets. He then paid his
freight bills and quit, saying that al
though on either bank of the river
grand supply could be obtained, he
Could not market the trees, at thof e

For this reason it appears that some
of us must wait until our railroads find
out that fifty tweirty-ceut tons are bet

and when things go wrong he makes
remarks which are generally consider

before the bar of the House for censure
he has a triumph that Csesar might
have envied, and the Speaker's august
person beeouies pitiable by contrast.
We refer to the following scene, which
occurred during the debate on the Mc
Kinley bill :
Mr. Bynum, of Indiana, speaking of the
protective tariff on wool, -argued that it
nad destroyed the mauutaclurc of wool
len goods and driven the manufacturers
to manufacture shoddy, thereby destroy
ing the industry of wool-growing.

ot" Indiana, and Mr. Wilson, ot West
Virginia. Iu his letter he strongly at
tacks those gentlemen and uses vigorous
language iu denunciation of them. An
attempt was made to have the letter
stricken from the record, but it was un
successful, i .
Mr. Bynum, of Indiana, rose to a ques
tion of personal privilege to speak to the
Campbell letter, and When the Chair ex
pressed a belief thai no question of privi
lege was involved, there was an uproar
and much confusion.
After a half-hour had been wasted, Mr.
Bynum got the lloor aud explained the
conditions under which lie had called
Campbell a liar and a perjurer. He con
cluded by reiterating tuis charge, and by
saying: "I have asgreatcontidence in the
character of Mr. Campbell as I have in
the character of the gentleman who
makes ibis attack upon me." (Kxcke
1ae.1t and uproar.) on demand of Mr.
Cutcheon, the words were turned down
and reported to the House and Mr. Cut
cheon ottered a resolution to censure Mr.
Bynum. Debating motions consumed a
great deal of tiaxe, but the previous
questiou was ordered finally 611 the reso
lution. After much debate the matter came to
a vote. Mr. Springer demanded a di
vision of the resolutions, and the first
resolution declaring that Mr. Bynum
merited the censure of the tfotwel was
adopted, yeas 126 ; nays 10:j. The second
resolution nrovidimr tur the nreseiwe w
Mr. Bynum before the bar of the House
was also adopted, yeas, 12b ; mrysT 103,
(Mr. MeKenun, of California, .votfujr in
the negative.) Then Mr. Bynum, lean
ing on tne arm ot Mr. Holtnon, of Indi
ana, appeared at the bar, accompanied
by all ot his democratic associates' who
could find room in the limited spaee; and
who were loud in their applause. The
Speaker demanded that members be
sealed, but the democrats to a man: rose
and crowded about Mr. Bynum." The
Speaker then censuted him, and at the
conclusion, Mr. Bynum said: "Under
such circumstances, I accept the censure
of the House as a decoration of hcunr."'
Tnere was some disposition manifested
oy tne republican to take umbrage at
this remark, but before it was understand
perfectly, the House at 10:30 adjourned.

bold with the -success of long-prneticed
deception. Protection, of course is
the soul and prop of the republican
party, and the means sought to per
petuate it is a federal election law.
It is not concealed that it is a purely
partisan measure but the following by
Speaker Reed at a recent banquet ex
plains the matter concisely. '"The
only wise course is to take into federal
hands the federal elections. Let ns
lent loose from the state elections ; do
our own registration, our own count
ing, our own certification. Then the
nation will be satisfied. The southern
states can by themselves grapple with
the problem whether a state can per
manently enthrone injustice. Freed
from all right of interference from
the North, within-their own borders
and their own state rights they will
have the power for which they have
longed, the power to work out their
town peculiar problem themselves.
So the 0. O. P. cares nothing for
the negroes whose wrongs it has been
heralding so. Thev may be bullied
and cheated and murdered as it has
been claimed thev have been treated
heretofore, at State elections ; just so
that their votes arc recorded for pro
tection high tariff and the r. pub
ican party in the federal on tests.
For greater security S311 itors Sherman,
Hoar and ethers advocate making the
tenure of election officers for life.
Others wish to charge the judiciary
with this duty ; but so far no one ha;
b.-en able to devise aTiy practical bill that
didn't run counter to the constitution.
This additonal election will involve an
extra expense of ten or fifteen mil lions
but the tariff men and salaried officials
will regard that as a small sum well
apropriated if it answers their por
pose. In the IIoiko the tariff debate last
week was no better than a squabble,
the amendments being regularly voted
clown as they were offered. In the
Senate Mr. Teller denounced the Win
dow silver bill in vigorous terms aud
promised that with five coinage wheat
would go up to Si. 10. He didn't, say
it would go to that price in Liverpool,
where the world's price is made, but
virtually confessed that inflation was
the object. This bill will be voted on
Wednesday and will pass the House
all right. But wait until it gets to
the Senate. Senator Allison is wait
ing for it. The west will show its
teeth. He says that he i-; profoundly
convinced that the conditions have
changed, and will handle the Mc Kill
ley bill so that the author wen t know
it. when he sees it.
At an evening session of the House
last Wednesday 139 private pension
bills were passed. As these claims
are invariably first rejected for want
of satisfactory proof, after careful ex
amination by the Pension Bureau it
wojldsceoith.it the House had de
veloped a rem irkable capacity for
business, to dispose of so great an
amount of it in so short a time.

left him and thought no more about it.

a few minutes, he told his room mates
about it. They thought he was fooling

He did'so at once, going back down the
