1 'lUE MESSAGE. j
j .Southern Views. . . j -1
Lynchburg News, Protection.!
We feel obliged to say that the
views entertained by the President
on this subject are not as conserva
tive as we apprehended they would
be. On the contrary it would t be
difficult to oonceive of a much more
immoderate advocacy of the doctrine
of free trade pure and simple than
that employed by Mr. Cleveland in
his theorizing on tariff taxation.
The people had expected that Mr.
Cleveland would in his message to
Congress take occasion to empha
size the vital necessity of revising
and reducing the present Vicious
and oppressive tariff and modifying
the infernal revenue system; but we
venture to believe; that his radical
suggestions will excite the utmost as
tonishment throughout the country.
If this economic question were
all of Democracy, and thq Chief
Magistrate were the determining
power, we should consider that the
party is mortally harmed. i
Petersburg Index-Appeal, Protection.
J It is a' plea for free trade,j pure
and simple. There is in it not aline,
not a thought, no,t a suggestion, that
will find favor in Virginia, of 0eor
gia or Alabama! where new manufac
turing industries are daily springing
into life. Mr. Cleveland also
declares with brutal frankness we
mean no offense by this term
against the removal "of the internal
revenue tax on tobacco. . j . j
j Augusta Chronicle, Protection; .'
The tariff is clearly and ably ban
died. The President defines lit at
the outset so that all can readily
comprehend. The President
places hiurfelf against the repeal of
the internal revenue laws. j He
is clearly in favor of a low tariff.
Tariff reform is, "with him, the
one absorbing question. We have
no. doubt that the popular will, if it
coald be expressed without regard
to party, would overwhelmingly en
dorse his position, but candor
, i . .1 .L tL
nela us to sav that his views oft the
r i 1 w
internal revenue system and the
tariff will not strengthen our cause
in the Presidential election in the
States-&f New York, Connecticut,
New Jersey and Virginia. j
Jacksonville (FlH.)TimeaUnion. Dem.
The views of the President on this
au-imponani euoject are not uouuu-
ed by any narrow partisan or sec
tional considerations. While they
are in strict accord witn tne Dnnci
pies of true Democracy as enunciated
by the National Democratic party,
they are such as must be endorsed
by every intelligent and patriotic
person in every part of the Union
who is not influenced by motives of
' j Richmond
That part of
the message is to us,
and will be to
the people of the te
states, a distinct dis
appointment, for we bad hoped that
he would at least recommend the re
peal of the tobacco tax.
j Augusta (Ga.) Gazette, Dem.
.It is a brave, honest, clear, put-
spoken document. It is Democratic
front beginning to end, and does not
leave any one in doubt as to where
Mr.! Cleveland stands on the great
question as to how the surplus should
be reduced. Mr. Cleveland
takes no stocky whatever in ? the mis
erable Republican scheme, originated
by Pig Iron Eelley and adopted at
second band by aam xtandau and bis
henchmen, to reduce the surplus by
abolishing the taxes on whiskey, to
bacco I and beer. Whatever
may be said of the other Democratic
leaders, President Cleveland has
shown that he comprehends the Dem
ocratic! opportunity to right the
wrongs of the people, and that; he
bas the courage to meet the respon
sibilities of the situation like a man
and a patriot.
New York Star, Demi
Those who were well . grounded in
Democratic doctrine and thoroughly
lniormea as to. toe opinions ana pur
poses of the Democracy pave also
been able to , anticipate the general
line of argument which the Jr'resl
dent would present. The sub
ject is the reduction of taxation, and
the method is to reduoe the taxes
upon the materials of industry and
upon food, fuel and olothing. We
think that there 1 is no fair-minded
man whatever, not biased by his. in
' tercets, who can come to any other
conclusion than this.. - There
is no indication that he favors the
improvident . policy of doing away
with the internal taxes, which are all
levied upon luxuries, in order to ; re
tain oppressive taxes upon the neces
eities of life and industry;
. j Washington Post, Dem.
Passing over the idea of extravas
gant and unnecessary expenditure a-
a measure of relief it is ooncluded
that the only remedy-is by a reduc
tion of taxation, and as to that the
President leaves no one in doubt.
- None of the articles subject to inter
nal revenue taxation are 1 necessaries.
and. in the language of Mr, Cleve
land, "there appears to be no just
complaint of this taxation by the
consumers i of these articles, and
there seems to be nothing so Well
able to bear the burden without hard
ship to any portion of the people."
jTariff reduction and reform
is, by comparison with other issues,
the sole political question. Presi
dent Cleveland's attitude thereon is
the position not only of every true
Democrat but of all. liberal-minded
men of every party.
McClure, Rep. Protectionist in Phil.Times.
Just to the extent that this feature
of the message shall be aooepted as
averse to the reduction of internal
taxes to aid ip. reduoing revenue, it
is a blander. I believe it is to that
'extent a blunder on the merits of the
question; I am sure it is a blunder
. . ... . 1 . I r J - A
tnat wut mnaer rawer mau mu -jrao-tioal
results, beoauae internal tax re
duction is much stronger than tatiff
revisiorl as distinct propositions in
Congress. .''.'!!"'. V.::-. : .
PhiL Record, Dem. j
The true remedy for repletion is
reduction. The suggestion of tax
reduction by a repeal of the tax on
whiskey and tobacco is curtiy dis
posed of as not meeting the obvious
requirement of alleviating tnose our
dens which bear
with the greatest
hardship on the
whole body of the
people. This brings the argument
forward to a discussion of the reduc
tion of taxation by tariff revision.
On this topio, to Which the President
devotes the remainder of his Message,
the argument Is ! sustained, clear, lu
minous and satisfactory, j
NT. Journal of Commerce, Ind. Dem.
The whole message is grand in its
simplicity and freedom from every
form of ambiguity, and in tne evi
dent earnestness and sincerity which
characterize it throughout. j
f N. Y. Times, Ind Rep. j
There is no I room for doubt or
misunderstanding. It will be ob
served that the, President practically
recommends the reduction of tariff
duties only. He refers to the inter
nal revenue taxes but to say that
"thorn nnnonra I tn r nn in sr. nam-
I -ft ! T- . J
plaint of this taxation by the con
sumers ox tnose articles ' tnat are
taxed. But "out; present tariff laws,
the vicious, inequitable, and illogical
source of unnecessary taxation, ought
to be at once revised and amended."
j It remains to be seen how
Congress will j regard the appeal
made by the F resident. It is a wise
appeal, based oh facts that no one
can deny, and pointing to a policy
that must be adopted sooner or
later. . If it be not adopted now,
then, in the words of the message,
"the responsibility must rest where
it belongs." I
N. Y. World, Ind. Dem
The admirable Message of the
President has given to the Demo
cratic party what it has tong lacked:
an issue and a
leader, lne issue in
jfThe leader is the
now formulating the
1 Democratic policy as proclaimed in
all its platforms, and passing upon
Uougresd, after free consultation
with the party leaders, the "para-
mount issue" of

plus by reforming the tariff.
The message! of the President
i bold and fearless, and he makes sug
gestions evidently caring but little

tion next vear pr not. ouch a man

j ' j .!
The "President, taking the stand
point of the millions upon millions of
consumers in this country, very na
turally concludes that relief from the
taxes on food and clothing is more
urgent than relief from the taxes on
tobacco and spirit, but what he say
must not be conetrued into hostility
to a reduction in internal taxes or to
the abolition of any part of them.

The' popular effect of the Message
will be to awaken! fresh discussion of

way will, of course be wholly de

jPhil. Herald, Dem. J j
The alternative possibility of avoid
ing the surplus by a diminution of
internal taxation, such as might be
effected by a' reduction or abolition!
of the tax on tobacco, is practical Iv
ignored, though! it is by no means

not he a most desirable "one, in and

The small band of Democratic

homeless, but the Democratic party
must go with the President. As a

be attempted by the Convention.

. State vs. Goings.
Defendant was indicted for steal
ing a horse, and in. ; another count in
the same bill for- receiving the horse,
knowing it to be stolen, and a gen
eral verdict of guilty being rendered,
the Court sentenced him to seven
years imprisonment. .
Held, That as the two offences are
not of the same grade, nor the pun
ishment the same in each in the con
templation of the statute, the verdict
being general, the Uourt could not
determine for which offence the pun
ishment ought! to be imposed and
would not mete it -out as contem
plated by the law. j The record does
not show for which offence the pun

The record ought to show for which

Rose vs. Hardy, I ,
Held, That' the act relating to the
town of Fayetteville, chapter 58, pri
vate laws 1881, is valid and confers
authority on the sheriff of Cumber
land county to impound hogs running
at large in FayetteviiJe, whether be
longing to residents or non-residents,
and the lawful charges paid to secure
their release from the pound cannot
be recovered in an action against the
sheriff. j ! " i
Roberts vs. j Calvert.
Held, .That the provision in the
election law empowering the board
of county canvassers to open and
canvass and judicially, determine the
returns and make abstracts cannot
be construed as creating a jurisdic
tion to determine finally and conclu
sively the result of the election ; nor
does it contemplate that the decision
of the board ! shall be reviewed and
affirmed or corrected upon appeal or
by writ of certiorari to the Superior
Court or the supreme Court.
Held, The Returns from a voting
precinct, being regular are prima
facie evidence of the election held
there, and put the burden of proof
on bim who alleges the contrary to
prove it clearly.
To render an election void on the
ground of violence and intimidation,
it must be shown that there was vio-.
lence or a display of arms or implo
raents of force or intimidation deter
ring electors of reasonable firmness
from voting or driving tnem tnrongn
fear and mtimioation to vote other
wise than they! intended or desired
to do, and this ought clearly to ap
pear. j j " ,
Where the Selection is held in i
neighboring store to that designated
as the precinct, so near to it as that
all the electors who desired to vote
bad fair opportunity to do so, the
- election wiil not be void.
Where persons not sworn, other
than judges of j election counted the
ballots or assisted in the oountftg, if
the ballots were truly counted, the
election would! not thereby be ren
dered void. i ; j-
After the board of canvassers
have deulared the result of an eleo
tion for register of deed, the board
of commissioner can recognize only
the person declared elected, and
whether such person appears in or
aer to be inducted, or tans to ap
pear, the board of commissioners
cannot consider and pass on the right
of another person who claims to have
beeu elected, j i
The commissioners could afford no
remedy to one whose right had been
rejected by the board of canvassers,
and that the commissioners declared
the office vacant and elected a third
person to the office could not in any
way affect bis right, which was para
mount. : : I
Eigenbrun vs. Smith & Cohen.
Robinson & Holt executed a deed
in trust of their stock of goods to
Watkins, who subsequently joined
Robinson & Holt in a bill of sale to
plaintiff. ,! !
Coben bad a judgment against
Robinson & Holt, and Sheriff Smith
levied on the goods and took the same
into possession, alleging the deed and
bill of sale to be void as against
creditor, and the juryso found.
Held, 1 hat if a purchaser gives
even a full price for th goods yet if
be does so with the view and purpose
to defeat a creditor's execution, the
transaction is fraudulent. The ques
tion of fraud depends on the motive
and the purchase must be dona fide
as well as upon good consideration.
Kqowlege of the fact that the sheriff
was seeking to subject the property
would not invalidate ! the purchase;
but if one purchases , with a view to
defeat the remedy of creditors, the
sale may be questioned.
Held, That where the plaintiff af
ter a cross-examination of certain of
bis witnesses rests his case, and the
defendants introduce no evidence,
and the plaintiff does not ask leave
to introduce further testimony, but
goes to the jury, although he had
other important!; witnesses, there is
no ground for a new trial. .
Held, To render a deed of assign
ment invalid, it is not necessary that
the trustee should know that1 the in
tent with which u was made was
fraudulent. The bona fides of the
trustee is not ah element in the ques
tion of fraud, li I

RKLIQIO US MISCELLANY,
Rev. J. M. King, D. D., a
MethodUt minister in New York, is re
ooned to have stated that two hundred out
of three hundred families, who admitted
to cmvaseers from bis Church that they
had no copy of the Bible, lived in brown-
titone-front houses. '
The Christian Register tells of
a minister in a prominent western city who
resigned bis charge after a few years' trial.
saying that be wanted to be the pastor of a

only a paragraph invented to characterize
the tendency to . provide amusements in
Brme congregations, we are not able to say.
Of this, however, we are fully persuaded
that there are a great many entertainments
desicned to popularize churches and draw
support from outsiders, which, if not posi
tively hurtful, are certainly not neipiui to

It has been often said, but can
never be said too often, that the Scripture
is rather a book of principles than of rules.
Let us clearly understand the difference. A
rule of duty sets us a definite task which
wears one aud tbe same aspect under ail
circumstances, whoso limits are prescribed,
and whose nature there can be no mistak
ing. "Thou shalt set the show-bread upon
the pure table before the Lord" this is a
rule; it prescribes an action, clearly defined,
and nevt-r varying in its form. A princi
ple, on tbe otner hand, prescribes not an
action, b-it a frame of spirit, a tone of
mind, which will develop itself differently
under different circumstances. "Honor
thy father and thy mother" is a principle;
the honor may be shown in many different

The right to think, to speak, to

went out from the lowly teacher of Naza
