MAKING A SOLID SQUTH,
N. T. Times,; Ind. Rep.
We
published yesterday morning
a lettei from oar correspondent ia
Raleigbj which we take the; liberty
of commending to ' the thoughtful
attention of Mr. John Sherman, Mr.
Evarts, Mr. Ingalls, and the collec
tion of gentlemen, candidates for the
Republican nomination and, others,
who imagine that the way to carf y
the next Presidential election ia to
raise a hue and cry about the sup-
presssooi
of the negro vote j in tbe
Oar correspondent, Who has
possible means of knowing
South,?
the best
the . situation of tbe Republican
party inj the States ! of North Car
olina, j jthe two Virginia, and
Tennessee, and who is, we may
say an entirely orthodox and con
sistent Republican himself, reports
that the' once certain effect of what
he calls "waving the bloody-shirt"
must be to make the Sooth solid and
to destroy the "fighting chance"
which I he believes the Republicans
have .for Carrying these four! States.
It will be a sore trial to the gentle
men we have referred to to acknow
ledge the fact, bat, according to this
most indisputable1 authority Mr.
Cleveland's Administration has bro
ken down the color line in a good
part of the South, and especially in
the States named. , It has led to a
spirit of political tolerance, has ren
dered the mass of sensible men among
the Democrats sufficiently secure as to
their own rights to persuade them to
consider! other matters, and has made
it possible to divide them. If, now,
the old, bitter, narrow, and proacrip
tive feeling is to be again arotind by
the coarse of the Republican in the
North, it will be answered by a like
spirit among the South, all hope of
redeeming any southern State will
be lost, and the Republicans Will be
forced to rely wholly on the I North
for a posiible majoritry in the Elec
toral colleges. Our correspondent
declares that this is bo sure to be the
case that under these the Republi
cans in these four:; States will nut
take the trouble to name an Electoral
ticket, bat will devote themselves
wholly to State matters. . j

Plaintiff tad bought tickets for
himself and wife from Wilmington
to Old Point and return. These
tickets were to be good "for return"
only after being stamped by the
agent at Old Point. Plaintiff stop
ped at Norfolk and did not go to
Old Point. At Norfolk an agent of
defendant stamped ?(the tickets,"
bnt the conductor would not recog
nize them as good because not
stamped at Old Point. The plaintiff
offered parol evidence to show that
there was a waiver by the railroad
company of the requirement that the
tickets Ishonld be stamped at Old
Point which the Superior Court ruled
incompetent. j 11
i Held, That while parol evidence
' cannot be heard to vary a written
contract, each as a ticket, yet itjis
admissible to show a waiver of some
requirement, and that such waiver
of a written stipulation may be1 by a

They are also in the wrong equal
ly, it seems to me, in asserting that
protection can be one of the purposes
of the taxing power at all. It has
been decided again and again by the
highest courts of both States and the
United States that taxation can only
be levied in a tree country for public
purposes. The very essence of free
dom is involved in this. It is the
majrked and characteristic distinction
between liberty and despotism that
1 he power of the State shall not touch
tuej property of its citizens except for
the support of government, which is
3 public purpose. ; Our organic laws
1 orpid the taking 01 private property
except for public purposes and upon
adequate compensation. When cor
porations require tbe use of private
property it I ia necessary to
confer, on them by law the
power to condemn it. but this can
omy ue aone it tne purposes

and objects of the corporation are
public. Taxes are a condemnation of
the! property and effects of a citizen.

lect them when the government does
not need the money. But when they
areiimposea avowedly tor the bene
6t of private individuals, it ceases to
e taxation and becomes simply rob
bery. The Supreme Court has not
hesitated to Bay so.
The only question therefore which
remains to be considered is' whether
or not protection has a private pur
pose 10 sun-serve or a public . one.
what is the first effect of a proteo
tive tana, ana on wnom does it op
erator mis is tne proper test of its
constitutionality. The law will not
judge it by its 1 remote and possible
results. It is not lawful to kill a man

ly and his neighbors; the act is mur-
deq Well, the direct effect of such
a varin is 10 raise tne price
ot.jaii toreign j goods on which
it "is levied, and of all similar
goods owned by private citizens. It
operates upon all as to taxation, but
only a part as to benefits; all pay
oat, oat only a few receive back.
Therefore, when it is levied for
protection and not for revenue that
is, to enrich the individual and not
the publio treasury if that be not
a private purpose; it is hard to con
ceive how language can describe
such a purpose as contra-distinguish
ea irom a private .one. 11 one man
only received the benefit, every one
would naturally admit it was private
so if only a hundred or a thousand.
Well, where will iyou draw the line?
What number I of beneficiaries wil

SENATOR VANCE
ON TB
TARIFF.
Tne Power of ; Concresa Limned.
Baltimore San.
As oar government is one of lim
ited powers defined by a written con
stitution, and as our safety and pros
perity on the" whole depend mainly
upon the faithful observance of these
imitations. I maintain that it is tne
first duty of a citizen, 1 when he un
dertakes to investigate for himself
the propriety of our present tantt
aws, to oonsider wnetner or not tney
be conformable to our constitution.
There is no doubt whatever that Con
gress has power to impose tariff du
ties. The constitution expressly con
fers it. The words are: "Congress
shall have power to lay and collect
taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to
pay the debts and provide for the
oommon defence and general
welfare of the United States." But
this grant of power is limited to cer
tain powers, as appears by the lan
guage. OfJ couse it; I could levy
and collect ; taxes, fcc, for no
other purpose than those mentioned;
to wit, pay the debts, provide for
the common defence and general
welfare of the United States, it
will be noticed that 1 thdse pur
poses mentioned are all public, and
there is no intimation whatever of a
power to levy and oollot taxes for
any private or individual purpose.
"The debt," of course, is public. The
defence is eommon. The welfare i
general. No one will jdeny that the
object of this power was to raise
revenue, moneys Whilst it is not
possible to draft a tariff bill in suott
terms as would; yield tbe precise
amount of revenue desired, yet it is
a sufficient compliance if the object
of the law be in fact and truth to
raise revenue in other words, ia de
signed to effect either of the public
purposes mentioned in the constitu
tion. The protectionists claim that
under the term "general welfare" a
tariff may be lawfully framed, not
to raise revenues, but to afford pro
tection to the manufacturers of this
country; that is to say,' that it is law-
ul to impose a tax upon foreign pro
ducts that will increase the price of
their own products. They then go
on to argue in the general welfare of
the United States is provided for by
providing for their citizens individ
ually engaged in certain pursuits,
inasmuch as their prosperity will in
divers ways redound to the prosperi
ty of all, &c, and so on. it seems
to me that this argument is to be met
at the threshold by an absolute de
nial of its truth. Congress is author
ized to lay and collect taxes in order
that with tbe money ;so derived it
may pay the debts, provide for the
common defence and general welfare.
These objects are to be effected with
the money results of taxation, and not
by any method of levying taxes.
They are to provide for the general
welfare with the cash collected and
placed in the Treasury,' not by so ar
ranging the law for levying taxes as
that no taxes shall be collected or by
any other collateral results. 1 be
general power of enactiog laws to
further the purposes of the federa
tion are to be found in other parts of
the Constitution, and mot under the
head of the taxing power. They are
all contained in the remaining clauses
of seotion 7, article 1. 1 Clearlv, if.
you could not devote tbe money col
lected under a tariff law to the ob
ject in question you cannot lawfully
make the method of its collection
serve the purpose as a primary ob
ject. For a still stronger reason you
cannot effect the object by prohibit
isg the collection of money under a
tariff i3w. The Constitution says
"lay "and collect" taxes, &o., to do
certain things. A protective tariff
says "lay" taxes so as not to "collect"
and provide for tbe general welfare
in that way. That is. the taxin&r
power is properly exercised when
used to defeat itself.
Therefore to lay and collect taxes
on foreign goods for the purpose of
increasing the price of goods in the
hands of a citizen would not be con
stitutional unless you could apply
the money collected for the same pur
pose admitting that the tariff per
mits none to be collected. When it
permits none to be collected, being
placed so high an to prohibit foreign
importation?, surely no. one would
pretend that tbe law could be justi
fied under this taxiog clause of the
UoDPLitution. Nor can u 'be eus
taiued under the third clause, which
gives Congress power ' to regulate
commerce with foreigu nations, for
this would be to destroy, not to reg
ulate, and a power to regulate is not
a power to destroy. Those who ad
vocate a tana for protection, there
fore claim in effect that Con er ess
has tbe power to lay taxes which are
not to be collected, in order to pro
vide for the general welfare, and to
defeat pro tanto or in toto the ob
ject for which the taxing power was
granted.

i Washingtoh. March 22. Mr. Sauls
bury addressed the Senate on the sub
ject of the President's annual mes
sage. ' The Democratic party, be said, bad
always maintained, and still held.that the
only proper motive of taxation was to pro
vide the necessary revenue for the wants of
the government; and that every man was
bound to contribute his Just share. - Taxa
tion for any other purpose was unjust
and indefensible. The Democratio party
waa in favor of revision and reduction of
the tariff, and. would carry it' oat unless
thwarted in its purpose by combinations of
Democrats (actuated, by local interest)
with Republicans who favored high rates.
The Republican party, judging by the state
ments of ita leaders ,and of its press, would
oppose any proposition of reduction ; and,
if it could reduce the surplus by large and
unnecessary appropriations it would do so.
He thought he stated tbo views of the. two
parties throughout the country fairly, when
he said the Democrats favored the tariff In
the interest of the people, and that Repub
licans favored it in the interest of protec
tion. There might be a few Democrats who
were protectionists. How any body: could
assert that tbe President or the Democratic
party was in favor of : free trade, was be
yond his comprehension. Bach statements,
however, had been recklessly made in the
Senate with the full knowledge on the part
of those who made - them that there was
nothing in the bistory of the Dem
ocratic - party, past or present, that
justified them , The Democratio party
was not in favor of free trade, but it was
earnestly in favorof reducing tariff rates,
so that no greater taxation would be. im

Tbe senate then proceeded to the consid
eration of bills on the clendar in their reg
ular order, to which no objection was made,
and passed a number, principally ' of
a local or private character. .Among
the bills so passed are the following :
