POSTAL. AND OTHER SAVINGS
RANKS.
The benefits accruing from sav
ings banks, are well understood by
intelligent observers and readers.
They certainly tend to increase the
disposition to save. Nearly every
roan spends too much and thousands
spend far more than they are really(
able ta spend. That is to say, they;
get in debt. Savings banks extend
daily an invitation to save money,
There are now three or four such
banks in North Carolina ;and theyj
are giving much satisfaction. We
are not certain that it is Constitu
tional for Congress to create the of-
ten advocated Postal Savings Banks,!
They would do a great deal of good
no doubt, for they would be intro-j
i 'I i . . in
duced in hundreds of communities,
! where the private savings banks are
slow te come. The people need en
couragement: to save. The savings
institutions serve this good purpose,
In Massachusetts there aro probably
quite two hundred million dollars in
these banks. ( They exist a 1 through
New England. jj
Banks that will encourage deposits
and pay 3 or 4 per cent, interest will
aid the people very much. J The suc
cess of such banks depends, upon the
honesty, capacity and fidelity of the
officers. If it is strictly constitu
tional for the Congress to create such
institutions we wOuld be glad to see
them introduced generally. Any
thing that will promote habits of in
dustry and economy ought to be
favored within the Constitution. In
England postal savings banks have
been in successful operation for many
years. The people like them. Wil
mington ought certainly to have! a
savings bank of some kind. It ought
to be such as to command1 the full
confidence of the public.' jj
That in many of the States thera
are still existing many cruel, mean,
absurd laws is certain. . Call tbem
Blue or Black, and by any other
name they will be as offensive as
indefensible. That in an; enlighten
ed and progressive age! such laws
should be retained shows how slow
men are to learn and how reluctant
they are to yield up the bad because
it is old. Sunday blue laws exist in
a great many cities. Mary of jthe
laws in existence are never enforced.
It would provoke a tempest if they
were enforced. The Philadelphia
Record caa attention to ,he follow
ing. It says: j;
"In every commonwealth and in nearly
jevery community there exist laws which by
common consent are never enforced be
cause nobody is interested in securing their
observance, or because the penalties they
inflict are either barbarous or dispropor
tionate to the offense, and hence unconsti
tutional. In a part of the District of Col
umbia the penalty for blasphemy is a fine
and boring a hole in the tongue with a
red-hot iron, while in manv of the older
States impracticable statutes of almost
equal absurdity are in existence."
The people are surely Very long
suffering and it is strange that the
jtwo Pennsylvania High Tariff kd
vocates the Protection j pair that
pull together so nicely Kelley and
Randall, do not see it. It is known
that most of the iron and stael made
j in this country are in Ohio ahd
j Pennsylvania. In one Jyear the
people of the United States paid
' 1169,000,000 for these two articles,
; the most of which, as we 'said, is pro
J uced in the two States, j The Gov
j ernraent received in tax $27,000,000.
i The manufacturers got $8 a ton in
I tD5 way of help or bounty. In one
: year for iron," glass and wool $268!,
000,000 were paid by the people of
I this country. It is estimated thlt
the people pay the American manu
facturers $600,000,000 j annually in
the way of . bounty. The Tariff oi
presses the people and 'enriches the
j monopolists. That is the way of i'L
, Railroads are always seeking the
short line to a given point. The old
roads have all been manoeuvring to
getshort lines and pay hundreds ojf
thousands to secure them. Wilming
ton is the natural objective (point of
the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley Rail
road. W5 have no doubt that those
controlling understand it and Wih
consult their own interests. WiL
mington must have direct c'ommuni
cation with North Western Carolina
and beyond and by the short line.

The dodge of the Supreme Court
in dealing with Virginia is not
worthy of the highest judicial tri
bunal In the land. The eleventh
amendment to the Constitution reads
"The judicial power of the United States
shall not be construed to extend to any suit
in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted
against one of the United States by citizens
of another State, or by citizens or subjects
of any foreign State.
This looks clear enough to even an
unprofessional eye. What was the
purpose in view in adopting that
amendment? The answer is plain. It
was to prevent the doing of the very
thing the Supreme Court has under
taken to authorize to sue a State.
The Louisville Courier Journal says:
"The court merely shunted the issue be
fore them from the State to the person of a
State official, a trick upon law and legic.
which, while plainly admitting that the
Federal Court could not pursue a State for
remedies at law, yet claiming that it was
quite competent to impose penalties and
fines upon State officials personally, for the
capital offense of executing the State law.
The State necessarily acts, and can act
only, through the persons of her officials,
and to pursue these officials with legal
process on the sole ground of an honest
discharge of their duties under the State, is
obviously as complete an overthrow of
State autonomy as if the State Treasurer or
the Governor were prosecuted in behalf of
private claims. " i
It is not expected that Republi
can papers will see any wronp; at
tempted by Jeffries Bond. With the
ordinary regulation Republican sheet,
the Republicans can do no wrong in
dealing severely with a Southern
State. But it is certain that before
the supremacy of Republicanism1 in
the affairs of the Union, there were
no two opinions as to the meaning of
that eleventh amendment. It was
adopted, and it was universally so
understood, j to forever prevent a
State from being sued or brought
under the operations of the
courts of the United States except in
an action as between States. The,
Republicans are always making Con
stitutional discoveries in order to
justify unwarranted assumptions, to
increase the powers of the Federal
6overnment,and to violate the rights
of the States. One of their latter.,
day discoveries is this doctrine of the
Republican Federal Court, that to
sue a State officer is not to sue the
State. This is a palpable trick, an
evasion, a dodge, and a very u a wor
thy one. I Law is based on common
sense. A common-sense view of that
amendment will inevitably result in
opposing the Bond business and the
supposed authority of the Supreme
Court. I
DEATH-TRAPS.
The killing of twenty workmen in
New York by the falling wall of a
building in course of erection is an
other warning to folly, and another
call upon the authorities i cities not
to allow the construction of "shoddy"
buildings1 Many such fatal acci
dents have occurred and many more
will occur. so long as the City authori
ties permit these dangerous walls to
go up. We would not be surprised
if there were not buildings in Wil
mington that have been built within
a few years that are death-traps. The
idea of erecting buildings to stand
through the centuries does not occur
to any oce now-a-days, we may well
supjose, when the material used and
the unstable appearance of the build
ings are considered. ;
Such buildings as the Carolina
Central office, the new . W. & W
office, the Dickinson residence, and
the solid I structure now being dis
mantled at the corner of Chesnut and
Front Btreetsy are indeed excellent
specimens' of masonry and would
stand for hundreds of years if no
earthquake came to topple them in
ruins. ' j , j j
We hope the fellow who was con
structing the crumbling building in
New York will find his way into the
the State prison. No man should be
allowed to erect an unsafe building.
City authorities should look after
hote lescapes and theatres. They
should demand every possible pro
tection for guests and visitors. Neg
lect at this ; point is without excuse.
The railroads will have soon or late
to give up jstoves. Every now and
then, as was the case a week or so
since, people are burned to death by
these enemies of the human race.
Humanity 'and sympathy alike de
mand all possible care and safety in
public buildings and public ! convey
ances, and in the homes of jthe peo
ple. Who could worship God with
a constant Reeling of insecurity as to
the building in which service was
conducting?) . j j . j
Among the excellent papers read
at the Saratoga Social Science Con
vention, was one on S "Profit Shar
ing." It was a "Manufacturer's opin
ions concerning this Device." It; is
by Hon. Frederick J. KingsburyJ of
Connecticut, a graduate of Yale; and
a thoughtful, pains-taking writer.
His discussion of "Profit Sharing'? is
exceedingly terse, compact and clear.
We have not space for all, and it is
impossible to condense the argument
The following wili show the drift of
the disoussion, that has assumed large
importance in the North. He says1 :
"Profit-sharing proposes to pay thela
borer by giving him 1, a stipulated fixed
wgea; 2 8 Proportion of the profits
of the business in which his employer is
engaged, m addition te This fixed wages.
The advantages of ibis system are supposed
TkTI !hati h ,aborer win be better paid
2, that being interested in the success of
the business .he will therefore be a better
workman; 3, therefore his employer can
afford to pay him better wages; 4, that it
cultivates friendly relations between the
employer and the employed; 5, that it in
creases industry and stimulates self-respect.
The whole scheme is based on the
assumption that the workingman is now
underpaid. ,We therefore admit this for
our present purpose and limit our inquiry
to the question, whether i this is the best
way, or, at any rate, a fairly good way to
raise the standard of waes Wiil it im-
ffTLlh, L'h0 workman as sucht
... ui ii, mis seems plausible."
JBUK. CARLISLE ADUj THB - BEVE-
Mr. Carlisle is in great disfavor
with some of the advocates of free
drinks and free smokes ia North Car-
olina and Virginia. He is not half
so popular with them as the noted
Pennsylvania j Protectionist and
kicker, Mr. Samuel J, Randall. The
newspapers demanding "free chaws"
and free apple-jack have issued an
ukase that Carlisle is to be slaught
ered by the iNorth Carolina Repre
Benlatives and those that think with
them. The ablest, truest, wisest of
Democrats , is not good enough for
this class. Randall or some other
advocate of j the total wiping out of
the needed, just, common sense tax
on whiskey , and beer, on wine and
cigars, &c, and thereby forcing the
Uovernment . to raise alt revenue
through a Tariff, is much nearer this
school than tho level beaded, wise,
true, able, broad gauged Kentucky
statesman, .j :
Well, this is a free oountry and all
men have aright to their preferences.
As for- the Stab it would not give
one John G. Carlisle for a battalion
of Samuel J.J Randall's. The Stab
may be foolish and blundering in
this, but it is Democratic. It stands
by the great majority of Democrats
in the Forty- Bightb, Forty -ninth and
Fiftieth Congresses. It is in har
mony with the Democracy of the
Union. j
The crying question of the day is,
down with high taxation and a sharp
reduction of the surplus. Politicians
who think that the people are not in
earnest in this matter are blind and
cannot see.j I he muttermgs of n
approachingj storm may be easily
heard by all fcrho have ears to bear.
While the .Republican politicians
(there are no statesmen) and the
Republican organs are. trying to de
vise all sorts' of plundering schemes
by which to get rid of the surplus,
the people are watching them and
will have none of it. Mr. Carlisle.in
bis calm, sane, conclusive paper in
The Forum) upon which we have al
ready drawn at some length in two
editorials, says:
"Already vast schemes of spoliation are
being devised! and advocated, partly for
the averred purpose of preventing a reduc
tion of taxation and partly upon the ground
that it is the duty of the Government, as
the paternal guardian of the people, to
dispense bounties and charities to certain
classes of its citizens and certain kinds of
industrial and commercial enterprises.
Some propose to purchase and operate all
the railroad aj telegraphs, steam vessels,
and other means of transportation and
communication, at an expense of thousands
of millions; dome want tbe general Gov
ernment to pay a part of the whole
of the cost of i reduction in the several
States; some I want to grant boun
ties j and Subsidies to sugar grow
ers and owners of steamship lines, as if they
were engaged in more meritorious occupa.
tiuns than jthe people who produce corn
and wheat, or who are employed in other in
dustrial pursuits; some want to increase the
pensions already allowed, and grant addi
tional ones, to tbe deserving and undeserv
ing alike; some want the Government to
loan money to the people to start in busi
ness . f j These are only a few samples
of the Belfish j and extravagant projects
w7iich an overflowing treasury has developed,
hut tbey are enough to show the danger of
loncer delay in , tbe consideration of this
subject." j ! '
A surplus h'as always been a source
of danger and corruption. English
statesmen will not allow a surplus.
The taxes of the Government are al
ways levied with reference to expen
ditures, i.rd a j surplus is studiously
guarded ugainst. The 'Presidents
before the war were always mindful
of this evil, and were ever warning
against high taxes and excessive rev
enue. A dollar taken from any man
in taxes not imperatively needed by
the exigencies of government is bare
faced robbery.
There
a surplus. It is variously
Some say it will not
estimated
really exceed $50,000,000. But that
is a great
sum. The total receipts
S. Government in 1840,
of tbe U.
were but
,$19,480,749.61. Ten years
It -j' ' J
afterwards in!850 they had grown
enormously and had reached $43,
592,888.88. Ten years later, under
a Democratic j Administration, in
1860, the expenditures' were $60,050,
754.71. ITnere are others who con
tend that thjft surplus will reach $100,
000,000 or more.
What shall be done ? There is a
i - i
surplus, 0 that all are agreed. It
is a very large and a growing sur
plus.! Of that, 'too, all are agreed.
Shall it be got rid of by the violent,
wild, reckless plans of tho Republi
cans, or by the judiciouB, sensible,
statesmanlik a way proposed by able
Democrats ? Mr. Carlisle says that
the revenue may be reduced and
still taxation shall remain high and
untouched. This is the Republican
plan, j It is also possible, says the
Kentuckian, "to reduce taxation to a
certain exter t without reducing the
revenue." To illustrate. A vrohihi.

character of the preent War Tariff.
It is partly prohibitory.

would be d minished, but the amount
of revenue1 would be

This is the; Carlisle view. " He says
the "Democratic solution" of the
difficulties is "to reduce both revenue
and taxation.! That is the real issue.
Shall it be done? Shall the people be
relieved of the burdens : needlessly
placed upon them by a huge, oppres
sive War (Tariff, continued . for the
benefit of a few rich monopolists, or
shall tbe burdens be lifted from the
people? The people' will be beard

An attempt is making to foster
and widen tbe rrotection system-in
the South a system that cannot be
defended in the forum of reason or
in the court of morality." There was
never a stupider, falser maxim coin
ed by the. brain of Mephistopheles
than that the sure way to national
prosperity is by grinding , the people
in the mills of monopoly. When
you hear a demagogue persuading
you that the high road to individual
prosperity and content is by high tax
ation, turn from him with the sting
ing rebuke that the Master adminis
tered to Peter r-"Get thee behind
me, Satan." We will take up this
question again. "
DESTJRUVTIVE JFIRR
Burning of tbe Clyde Steamer R-
I lator and Cargo. '
Fire broke out last night about 12
o'clock on the Clyde steamer Regula
tor, lying at the wharves of the Cham
pion Compress Company. As soon
as discovered an alarm 'Was sent out
from box No. 51, and the engines and
other apparatus of the Fire Depart
ment "rallied to the scene of the
conflagration, and in a short time had
the fire under control. . The flames
broke out, amidships and spread fore
and aft, until the whole ship was en
veloped, but the efforts of the firemen
prevented them from spreading to
the wharves and vessels adjacent. No
one could j tell how the fire origin
ated. ; : -
The Regulator was completing her
cargo and would, have cleared for
New York' this morning. Besides her
usual freight of spirits turpentine,
rosin, tar and lumber, she had about
one thousand bales of cotton on
board. '" 1 1 ' ' '
Finding that , it was impossible to
extinguish the fire, the tug Marie took
the burning steamer in tow and car
ried her up the river, away from the
wharves and shipping. When the
engines ceased to play upon her the
flames burst out with renewed ener-
gy, snowing mat tne vessel was a
mass of fire from stem to stern, and
likely to prove an entire loss.
The Regulator was an iron vessel of
847 tons, plying regularly between
this port and New Tork,and was com
manded by Capt. Ingram.
The Carolina Central Extension.
i i
The Hendersonville Times is urging
the people of Henderson county to
vote a subscription of $50,000 to the
Carolina Central Railroad to induce
that company to extend their road
through the country. From'Ruther
fordton to Hendersonville, the Times
says, the grade is the easiest through
out the Blue Ridge range of moun
tains, and the company, we are in
lormeu, wouia come oy Henderson
ville if proper inducements were
offered by our people. !
In its argument in behalf of the
enterprise the Times says:
"This great highway of freight and
travel from Eastern to Western Caro
lina has been completed from Wil
mington to Kutherfordton. It tra
verses the counties of New Hanover
and Brunswick on the seacoast, Co
lumbus, Bladen, Robeson, Richmond,
Union, Mecklenburg and Gaston bor
dering on the South Carolina line,
and Cleveland and Rutherford in the
Piedmont section of North Carolina.
All those are cotton producing coun
ties, and: depend largely upon the
outside world for food supplies. The
far eastern counties through which it
passes are warm and disagreeable du
ring the summer season, and all their
inhabitants, who are able to do so.
seek a more hospitable clime in which
to pass the heated term. The road
has its eastern terminus in the midst
of one of the richest and most exten
sive fisuinsr-erounds in the United
States, and also in a city which is the
maritime metropolis of the State, with
snip communication with Europe, the
West Indies, South America, etc.,
affording facilities for the carrying on
of an extensive commerce, which will
ultimately enrich the entire State.
Many more advantages could be
named, but the above are sufficient to
prove the desirability of the road."
Application for an Injunction.
We are informed that certain citi
zens and i tax-payers of this, city are
about to,! or have begun, an action
against the Onslow Railroad Com
pany to prohibit it from receiving the
bonds recently voted to it by the city,
on the ground that the election was
illegal; that the papers are prepared,
and that the case will be pushed so as
to get -it before the Supreme Court at
the present term.

Counsel were busily at work yester
day obtaining facts pertaining to the

the matter will be gotten into shape
in a few days.

route from Nassau to Boston, with
the disabled schooner John A.Bergen,
sugar laden, in tow, and when three
days out from Nassau encountered a
severe gale, during which the line
from the steamer to (the schooner
fouled with the propeller of the for

way at the time, the line had to be
cut to prevent a collision and the

The long-desired rain came at last
and the long-needed! want is sup
plied.
The rain began at 12.30 a. m. yester
day morning with a light fall, but
the precipitation increased . until
about 3 a. in., when it came down in
torrents for about half an hour or
more, when it again turned into a
light riin. It thus alternated from
light to heavy rain during the day
and evening and continued sprink
ling at midnight. The streets pre
sented a somewhat foreign appear
ance on account of the number of
umbrellas seen. No rain fell within
the last three weeks or more and there
was no necessity for calling them into
requisition as a protection against
rain hence this strange sight,
The rain was not j limited to this
section but extended along the South
and Middle Atlantic coasts and west
ward into Kentucky and Tennessee
It was particularly heavy throughout
this State. The local Cotton Belt
bulletin indicates the rainfall at
Lumberton at 4 20 j inches; at Flo
rence, S. C, 2.97; at Gojdsboro, 2.00;
at Salisbury, 1.87; at Wilmington,
1.56; at Wadesboro, 1.40; at Weldon,
1.10, and at Newbern 1.00.
The rainfall yesterday in this city
exceeded the total precipitation for
fhe preceding two months
There is a high barometer in the
West, which is reported as moving in
this direction. The usual cool fair
weather is accompanying it. No in
dications of a decided cold wave are
however apparent. The effects of the
approaching cooler weather are like
ly to be felt towards evening.
Itlce Destroyed by Fire.
It is estimated that about 800 bush
els of rice were destroyed by the
burning of the ricei barn on the Hall
place about four miles up the river on
the 12th inst. The loss is a severe one
to the owners, all colored people.
The sufferers were Tom and C. H.
Davis, who had 250 bushels in the
barn; Henry Small, j 80 or 90 bushels;
James Edwards, 75 or 80 bushels; Joe
Egnent,23 bushels clean rice; Minerva
McKoy, 20 bushels clean rice, and
Henry Robinson, 45 bushels rough
rice and about 300 bushels in the
sheaf. It is thought that the fire was
caused by one of the men who had
left his coat in the barn returning
late in the night and searching for it
with a torch or lighted matches.

By Telegraph to the Xornlnc Star.
Warsthotoo. Oct. 17. In the Unite
States Supreme Court to-day, the United
States Marshall of the Eastern District oi
Virginia' made a return to the writ of ha
beas corpus in the case of Attorney Gener
al Ayres and the other imprisoned State of
Ki.r. Virdnh unit th1r nnnnul Mr
Gordon, renewed his motion that thev be1
admitted to bail pending the argument of
the Question t issue. Chief Justice rVaite
ordered that the bodies of the prisoners be
committed to the custody of the Marshvl
of the Court until to-morrow, when the
Court will announce its decision as to bail
and the time for argument. , j
Washington, Oct. 17. The Governor
of Arizona in his annual report says:
"Apaches occupy ban uarlos reservation
containing about 2,528,000 acres of the best
agricultural land in the territory. As a
race tbey are lazy, thriftless and murdeiv
ous. seemingly incapable of civilization!.
As long as tbey are Buffered to remain with
in tbe borders or tbe territory, just so long
will the peace : of Arizona be insecure, and
her progress be retarded. The Governor
renews his recommendation of last year
that Congress make a liberal appropriation
for a hydrographic survey of the territory,
wiiu a view W umaiDiug water ior irrig
nog purposes oy storage reservoirs.
i ne uovernor oi u tan in his annual n
port devotes considerable space to the su
ject of Statehood for Utah. In the course
of his remarks he says: "It will be o
served that tbe movement for Statehood
was inaugurated by leaders of Mormon
people. Their representatives alone took
part in tbe deliberations of the convention,
and only that portion of the people of the
territory favor, and support it. When we
remember how recently these people
avowedly held and maintained the Dosition
which placed them in opposition with Feft- j
erai laws, the holding of which in the past
naa Drought tbem into conflict with people
with whom they lived in Ohio, Mis
souri and Illinois, and in antagonism
witb all who come to this territory
not identified with them. . When we recall
that the failure to yield that position would
have cost tbem the political control which
they have held since the organization of the
territory; that the securing of Statehood
win place in tbeir bands and take from
Congress the power that it has been com
pel led to exercise to regulate and control
tneir actions m accordance with tbe moral
sense of the country and Christian civiliza
tion before clothing them with sovereign
ty. should not Congress wait until action is
suited to the word; until their laudable pro
fessions have had time to ripen into pracr
tice worthy works; until the conduct of the
people and the legislation of the territory is
placed in the advanced position it would
have attained but for the past attitude of
those who are now asking the boon of
Statehood. It is more than probable that
the question of Utah as a political factor in
national affairs will be considered in con
nection with the application for its admis
sion as a State, but neither of the great po
litical parties democratic nor Hepupu
can so far as the Dast historv of the neo'
pie is concerned, can lav claim with any
aegree oi certainty to their support."
Inspector Williamson, of the Poetofficc
Department, has submitted his report! on
the deficiency in accounts of the assistant
postmaster at Savannah. The inspector
found a deficit of $1,146, which was made
good by tne accused.
Tbe Commissioner of Indian Affairs re
ceived the following telegram from Lower
Brule Indian Agency of Dakota: "Dis
turbing Indians surprised and captured by
police, uangej all over. What promised
to be a serious trouble is nipped in the bud.
The survey is going forward. A majority
of the Indians want to take allotments."
The Commissioner also received a telegram
irom uro w Agency, Montana, saying quiet
prevails mere dui no arrests were made.
Washington. Oct. 18. In U. S. Su
preme Court, to day, Chief Justice Waite
announced that the argument upon the
questions raised by the habeas corpus eases
of Attorney General Ayres and the other
imprisoned State officers of Virginia j will
oe set aown ror tbe second Monday in
.November, and that meanwhile the prison
ers win ne set at liberty on their own re
cognizance, m the sum of one thousand
dollars each, to answer the summons of
this Court when their presence shall be
required. In explanation of this decision,
tne enter justice stated that the prisoners
were public officers, charged with public
duties, and the presumption was that they
were actuated in this proceeding by a de
sire to obtain a decision upon the questions
at issue, and not to manifest contempt for
ue uoun oeiow. ineunier Justice ad d
ed, in response to inquiry, that the Court
would bear argument from two counsel on
each side. j

Columbus &:Western Railroad Company.
was taken up by the Inter-State Commerce
Commission to-day. Commissioner Bragg
s'aieu mat ne would not sit on this case.
for reasons of a personal and local charac
ter; that some, if not all, of the Questions
Involved bad been before him as Railroad
Commissioner in Alabama, and had been
mere decided by him and by that Commis
sion, and bad afterwards been the subject
oi an exciting controversy in the iiegisla
ture or Alabama, to which he had been to
some extent a party as one of the Railroad
Commissioners of Alabama. W. O. Har
well and H. B. Montgomery appeared
in meir own oenan, but there was no ap
pearance on me pan or me defendants.
i ne compiaim alleges a discrimination in
ireigbt rates by the Kauroad Companies
named against the town of Ooelika. Ala..
and in favor of Columbus, Ga., and Mont
gomery. Ala. It is charged that although
the Alabama State Commission last fall
gave it as their opinion that "Ooelika is
unjustly discriminated against," still the
Railroad Companies refuse to give the
necessary reaer and nave withdrawn! all
their freight rates to New Orleans from
Opelika. After hearing an oral statement
of the case by the representatives of ship
pers of Opelika, Chairman Coloey said that
it was unfortunate mat no appearance had
been made on the other side, but the Com
mission would take the case under advise
ment.
Washington. Oct. 19. Civil Serv ce
Commissioner JMlgerton, who returned to

Press reporter if his view.agreed with thcjse
oi commissioner uoeriy as expressed in his
recent letter to me Illinois .Democratic As
sociation. "They certainlv do not "said
Mr. Edgerton. "I do not believe in ex
treme or strained constructions of the civil
service law. These State organizations
nave as mucn rigni to exist as they ever
had. There is nothing in the law to pro
hibit it. A man ia not denrived of the
privileges of citizenship because he holds
public office, and I think the idea that n
man should abandon his residence in the
state, or nis citizenship, when he takes of,
flee in Washington, is absurd. The legis-
lauve power is aoove us an, and ir the law
is to ba applied so as to denrive men nf
their rights as citizens, the danger is that
me aemana win oe made upon the legisla
tive power to wipe it out. There is no ne
cessity for anything of the sort. The law
is all right, and it only needs to be con
strued in accordance with . common sense
and practical experience. No, sir," he
continued, "I do not agree with Commis
sioner Oberly, and I do not "see how he in
going to reconcile his 'present views with
those expressed in the Seeberger report of

missioners Oberly and Lyman. In that
report they Siid of Webster., dismissed

Chicago.' Oct. 17. Stephen W, Raw.
Son, President of the Union Trust and Sav
ings Bank of this city, was shot as he
emerged from the Third Presbyterian
Church to-day. by his step-son, William
Lee, aged 17. Rawson had been charged
by his wife with perjury and other of
fensec. He, on the other hand, alleged that
she, although prominent in society, and a
beautiful woman in appearance, was really
a disreputable, Diaspnemous, devilish tem
pered adventuress , who coveted only his
money. For a yea or more the two have
been fighting each other : in the divorce
courts, and within a week the banker has
filed against her additional charges of adul
tery. For this insult to his mother Lee
shot the grey-haired millionaire, his step
father, five times in the throng of people,
near the church door, every bullet taking
euect. Mr. Kawson s wounds are regarded
as mortal. The murderer was arrested at
his own request.
When apprised of the murder, Mrs. Raw
son said to a reporter, "I am glad of it; he
deserved it.
I "wnat was it done for 7" asked the re
porter.
