Till' NATIONAL DEBT AND TAX A
" I T,.ON' t 'V 'J. "'.
ITic great public war debt ia being1
reduced monthly and after a few de
cide the great burden ought to jibe
lifted from the shoulders of the peo
ple. The money raised by i taxation
since pcac was declared, if properly
applied, would have been almost suf
fieicnt to pay off the entire indebted
ness. The taxes have been huge,
and hundreds of millions have been
literally stolen, misapplied and
wasted. The policy of making jlhe
generation that fought in the,jwar
pay o2 most of ihe debt was not a
wise or considerate one. Daring the
k;x years embraced in 1879-84, $G00,
000,000 of the national debt were
liquidated. v Tbe rapid
"of the debt ' may
have a ""very
upon the finances-. The studen of
political and financial history knows
that in 182C an effort was made to
lessen the tax for paying ofl the
great British debt, although the sink'
ing fend was only one-tenth of one
per cent." It is to be noted, how
ever, that it is the capitalists who
are the first always to squeal when
tne public debt of. a country is being
rapidly cancelled. It is so in Eng
land and it is bo now in the United
States. ' It is selfish on their part as
they get a higher rate of interest
when there is more indebtedness,
Prof. Sidgwick, a great living'Eng-
lish economist, says that "the gain to
capitalists from the rise of
inevitably involves a corresponding
loss to labor." But this is a study
requiring much" patience and at
tention. ' !
Debts of any kind are not a bless
ing. A great publio debt is pirely
a great burden upon the tax-payers.
And yet it is of doubtful wisdom to
force one generation to pay off a
tremendous debt incurred by former
years of war. This is one view.
The other view is, that the debt ex
ist?, and aa long as it exists there is
an eatingconsuming interest to be
paid. This interest keeps up taxes.
'But the American people found
themselves, in 1865, in the presence
of very great debt. It had (lo be
met in some way. It has been great
ly reduced, after' paying an immense
sum in interest, and the taxes: have
been and are very high. Since1 1865,
the interest alone on our national
debt amounts to $2,400,000,000.
This has been paid in gold at
an advanced value. By A. D.
1007, there will be more' than
a thousand million dollars of interest'
to be paid. But the steady reduction
is going on and ' the people are more
benefited by this than are the capi
talists. I 'Most of the U. S. bonds are
held iit New England, New York
and Europe. The South owns bat
little ofj the bonds.
There can be no let up in the taxes
for the public debt for a long jtime to
come, j As we have said, more than a
thousand millions in interest must be
the generation just oming
and by 1907 or in twenty
Thf; other taxes for the mainten-
! . ji
ance of Federal. State and municipal
governments ought to bo- as low as
possibl consistent with efficiency
and economy. Taxes, as we have
often said, are a curse to any people.
We are reminded of the saying of
English courtiers, as reported by
Lord Bacon. ' They held that taxes
were like water which is drawn up
to" be returned to the earth in fructi
fying rains. But a Roundhead, in
the days of Charles I., eaidjlhat it
had descended "in hailstones and
mildews." . ;i : .- .' .

GOOD WORK THE RIGHT SLOGAN.

The President .deserves the com
mendation of the tax-payers for his
effort to reduce the expenses of the
Government. The consolidation of
internal revenue districts is an excel
lent supplementary act to the con
solidation and abolition of custom
house (Tariff) j districts, j If j there
was nonse for the number of inter
nal revenue districts -why j retain
them a( so much cost to the people ?
The policy of the Democrcy has
been to get rid of all unnecessary
(and there were many such) custom
houses. The policy should be ex--tended
to wipo out theuseless costly
internal revenue, districts No cusr
tom house should be retained just to
continue in office party henchmen.
This was j the constant course
of the Republican Administra
tions all through th9 years. They
created many custom-house and in
ternal revenue districts for no other
purpose than tcf find fat places for
"offensive partisans. " Some of these
custom-house districts cost five or
ten times more than the total re
ceipts amounted to. The ;: present
Democratic Administration does not
intend to follow such bad examples
or to allow their continuance. Well
done I ' It is certainly a: movement
in the right direction. The cost of
collecting tinder internal taxation is
much less than under the tariff sys

The Administration has also made

the Departments. : The people ex
pect and demand retrenchment, and
reform.?; These are not 'idle words
with them. Democratic speakers and
editors have taught the tax payers
that under Republican service there
were great waste and extravagance.
They have been taught that if Dem
ocrats got control. there .would he a
Bteady reduction of :k r expenditures.

lie Inviting Capital and Labor.
"Vilinington is really on a boom,"
said an enterprising citizen to a Star
reporter when on his rounds yester
day. And this seems to be the feel
ing of our people. The number of
buildings now in course of erec
tion is unprecedented; dwellings,
chiefly and a few places of business.
But the question is, what is to give
the occupants of these numerous
buildings employment? This is a
matter of great importance, and one
in which all good citizens are deeply
interested. We have numerous saw
mills, guano factories, the creosote
works, a cotton factory, and other in
dustries which give employment to a
large number of our population, yet
we need others; and there are a great
number of enterprises which not only
will pay handsome profit on invest
ment, but will give steady employ
ment to these dwelling-occupants.
Take for instance the manufacture of
buckets and tubs; There is a great
abundance of the most valuable juni
per, which can be obtained here as
cheaply as it can anywhere in the
United States.' A" paper factory and
the manufacture of paper bags would
pay. We have in cur midst the great
est quantity of 1 wood" suitable for
pulp; and cane, and other fibrous ma
terial which is at our doors. We have
only to stretch forth piir hands, as it
were, and gather With the slightest
expense. Then there is the manufac
ture of cotton bagging and rope; all
of which can be done as economically
here as in any other part of .the coun
try. . - - - 1 - :.'-:" "'- ..
The manufacture of wooden plates,
canning vegetables, and manufac
turing common chairs and bedsteads
are all inviting enterprises. . -;
These will give work and steady
work to our wage-earners, increase
our population, bur trade and wealth,
and cive us enduring prosperity. If
the capitalists in our midst have not
the enterprise to invest their means
in these industries let some of our
young men who are pushing and en
terprising take hold, of some of these
or similar enterprises, and form Btock
'companies, (which is so easily done
under bur present law,) solicit and ob

Washington, June 30. The President
has pardoned Thomas Ballard, a notorious
counterfeiter, who was sentenced January
21. 1875, to thirty years imprisonment in
Albany prison, for engraving and navmg
in his possession counterfeit plates, notes,
etc. Io endorsing the application the Pre

to be one of the most expett counterfeiters
in the country. Be has now been in prison
equivalent to more than fifteen years, al

Washington. June 30. Changes in tbe
clerical force of the Poetoffice and Interior
Departments, incident to tbe close of "the
fiscal year, are comparatively slight.
In the jrostonice Department only one
clerk was removed. One $1,800 position
created by the new appropriation! bill was
filled by promotion, unite a number oi
promotions and transfers were made.
In tne interior Department proper, a Tew
unimportant changes will be made The
new law provides for three additional law
clerks, three additional members of the
Board of Peneion Appeals, and for a num
ber of agents to allot lands in severalty to
Indians. Neither the law clerks nor In
dian agents have yet been .appointed.
Changes in the bureaus of the Interior De
partment are insignificant. No Changes of
consequence will be made in the clerical
forces of tne state and xsavy Departments
as the result of legislation contained in ap
propriation bills. To carry out the Sscre-
tary s ideas regarding the consolidation or
the purchasing system of the Navy Depart
ment, in one bureau a, number of financial
clerks of different bureaus have been trans
ferred to the Paymaster General bureau
In the consular service of the government
the present system of compensating consuls
by fees will, under the terms of the new
appropriation bill, be supplanted to a large
extent by a system of salaries.
In the War Department, of seven clerks
and copyists dismissed in the Quartermas
ter General's office, all but one were wo
men. Besides these dismissals,! there were
many changes in this office, anumbcr of
clerks being reduced to lower grades and as
many more promoted or transferred toother
grades. Twenty clerks in the Treasury
Department have been dismissed, to take
effect to-nforrow, because of the failure of
Congress to make provision fcr the pay-.
ment of their salaries. A number of minor
changes, such as increases and, reductions
in salaries of ceitain officers, will take
effect to-morrow,, as does also the
executive order . consolidating Internal
Revenue districts and reducing tbe number
of Collectors and other employees. ,
Tbe Judicial branch of the Government

it advisable , to git out of the way for j a

bates, referring to the action of Count De
Juontebello, French ambassador at Con

convention, says: .''Nothing is more natu
ral than: that the French diplomats should
at one time have considered that possibly
France would assent to a convention short
ening by several years the period of En
glish occupation of Egypt. We are ready
to negotiate on that basis now, but we
cannot agree that England, by any pretett,
should have the right to perpetuate ber
occupation of the country, . or that she
should be allowed to- reoccupy it, for the
reason of which she alone -should judge.
No Frenchman of common sense would
thus sanction a British protectorate, and
convert into a right recognized by France,

London. July 1 In the House of Lords
this evening, in the report of the stage of
the Irish Land bill, the Earl of Dunraven
said that there were three hundred amend
ments waiting, which might almost recast
the bill. Many of the provisions of which
derogated from the main object ofj tbe
measure. ' - i
Earl Spencer declared that the bill would
fair t6 bring about a settlement of the
Irish question, and was not worth con
sidering, as it would not relieve the teriaut.
He did not think that the government un
derstood some of the clauses because in
some Cases the clauses would inlurj the
tenants, and in the other case they would
injure the landlord. Tenants might be
ordered to pay arrears in small installments,
but payment of rent was not provided! fr
therefore the tenant might continue paying
instalments and allow rent to accumulate.
Directly the bill passed the courts would
be crowded with applicants whoe cases
would not be settled for years. 1
Lord Asbourne, Lord Chancellor off Ire
land, said that after the bill proposed the
necessary evictions would not ' be open to
harsh criticism. The bankruptcy clauses
of the bill were- fair and reasonable. I
Baron Herschell said that clauses deal
ing with, evictions, in which power ia given
to leasers to go to court, were the I only
clauses worth anything.
Lord Salisbury said it was because the
liberals had tried to apply an impossible
system to the relations between landlord
and j tenant; that the government j was
obliged to introduce the present bill. It
was a pity that the liberals had not fore-'
seen these evils, so that the government
would not have had to undertake the im
possible task of introducing sanity into
the landed policy which was absolutely in
sane;. Cheers!. He did not regard tbe
bill as a final measure, but he believed it
would be an element in restoring peace and
oci will. j "

March. Two showers in April ana one in

on the crops. - stunted yellow spears, bend'
