Topics of the Day.
As will be seen in another col
umn, some of the railroads have
signified to the Railroad Com
mittee theirwilliugne.-sto waive
their charter rights (?) of exemp
tion and will enlist tlieir prop
erty for taxation and others are
expected to follow. The fctate
Press generally i applauding in
advance this action of the cor
porations and speaking of their
generosity, patriotism and sense
of .justice, etc. It is to be re
gretted that the spirit did not
strike them sooner and to be
wondered at that the laborer
struggling to pay tax on his lit
tie tint lias not Jong since risen
to inquire in the justice and
equity of such corporations, who
more enjoy and more need the
piotectioa of the government,
not paying a cent of the State's
expenses. This may be patriot
ism and generosity, but we are
inclined to believe that it is
done to try to fight off a Com
mission. They prefer to pay
tax to being investigated by a
commission. Before another
twelve months we will see what
it means. Hope that we are mis
taken. The charter of the W. & V.
Railroad as originally printed
in the laws of the Legislature
of 1831 is not punctuated like
the manuscript of the same
which is on, file in the office of
the Secretary of State. The
Daily Chronicle of the 20th
prints the two different readings
and asks which did the Legisla
ture intend to become a law.
The printed copy (of the part
under controversy) reads :
And the shares shall be deemed
personal property and the property
of said company; and the shares there
in SHALL UK EXKMl'T FROM ANY
VV1UAC CHAItOK OH TAX WJIATSO
KVKK. The manuscript copy reads :
And the shares shall be deemed
personal property, and the property
of said company, and the shares
thereiu shall be exempt from any
public charge or tax whatsoever.
According to the latter read
ing all the property of said com
company would be subject to
taxation ; according to the first
reading the shares only would be
exempted. Which did the Leg-
slature mean ? The difference

Bully Heed and his conscien
tious gang are bent, it seems, to
acquire a reputation that
would make the ancient Goths
and Vandals envious. Their
whole course in the present
Congress is so outlandish and
antagonistic to a form of gov
ernment like ours that we are at
a loss for words to-characterize
their conduct. They have ad
mitted and seated the Radiral
lmposter Senators from Montana
without a qorum vote, in the
face of a Democratic majority
and in the face of the certificate
from the Governor that the
Democratic Senators were elect
ed. They passed, with less than
an hour's notice, not allowing
discussion, the Judicial Hill, one
of the most important measures
since the foundation of the Gov
ernment. It provides for the
appointment of 18 new United
States Circuit Judges, giving the
President power to appoint them
all of the fama political party.
iiius our judicial system was
changed for partizan purposes,
18 new Judges' dps created, and
all done in an hour's time, with
out debate and with less than a
Quorum present, and now, to
cap the climax, they have ar

looking into the Charters and
the Workings of Corporations
that Kvade Payment of
1 he legislative railroad and
corporation investigation com
mittee met in Raleigh on Tues
day of last week. The mem
bers of the committee are State
Senators PL W. Kerr, of Samp
son, aud B. F. Aycock, of. Wayne
and Represen ta i ves M.E. Carter,
of Buncombe; T. H. Sutton, of
Cumberland, and J. B. Holman,
of Iredell. ,
The committee was created
and appointed by the last
General Assembly -with instruc
tions to forthwith proceed to
investigate the question of the
liability of any railroad or
other corporation, claiming im
munity from taxation by virtue
of any provision in its charter,
to list and pay taxes upon its
property, and to also investigate
and ascertain what railroads or
other corporations have failed
and refused to list their stock
and other property tor taxation
The committf-.e was further
ordered to report the testimony
taken by them, and to report
sucu legislation or other pro
ceedings as in their opinion
may be requisite to compel said
companies to pay their lawf ul
taxes. This committee has held
one meeting previously at which
aline cf work was mapped out,
and subpeens-s were issued to
the representatives of the At
lantic Coast Line and the
Raleigh and Gaston railroad to
appear before them at this
meeting. Both of these roads
have charters exempting thm
from taxation. The exemption
in the charter of the Coast Line
is absolute. That of the Raleigh
and Gaston is conditional, be
cause the provision is that the
road shall pay tax to the amount
of 25 cts. on each share of stock
when its net earnings shall
equal a eight per cent interest
on the stock. The company
made the claim that under this
provision it is exempt, from
taxation necausa the net earn
ings do not amount to that per
centum per annum. But the
investigations of the committee
showed that the profits of the
road have exceeded 8 per ct. and
the fact that some of this profit
has been used in making im
prove ments and building
branches does not by any means
exempt the company from taxa
tion. YTarren G. Elliot appeared be
fore the committee and asked
for the courtesy of 60 days to
answer the demands of the
committee, which was granted.
it is understood that at the
end of this time he will come
up and waive the exemption in
the Company's charter aud agree
to enlist for taxation its three
and a half million dollars worth
of property in the State. The
income to the State in this prop
erty alone would be over 10,000
per year. The committee will
be in session all this week if not
longer, and will issue subpoenas
for the managers of ExpressCom
panies and other corporations
to appear and be investigated.

We are in Wilmington at that

temptation to go; and the crowd

1 hero is one ff" friend for
every girl. It is her mother.
Whom should you tni!t, in
whom repose confidence, if n.it
in her? No one ele loves yon
so unselfishly, and no one elso
has loved you so long. It is a
pity when girls are not con
fidential with their mothers.
There are times when every
young woman need an older
woman to guide and help her,
and her mother at those times
is her natural counsellor and
guardian. If she has no mother
let her pour out her trouble
and unfold her perplexities to
some motherly woman, aunt,
sister, friend, in wlmm she can
believe. Many a hearlaelm
would be sc.othed, many a vexa
tion rolled away, and many a
mortification saved, If girls
would remember that they have
not the dignity of Deborah as
yet on their unwrinkied brows.
Situations which bulllo them
would be plain to mor.i ex
perienced eyes, and they would
be guided over bad places.
Dr.Kingsbuiy in Wil. Messenger.
A frown will inar the prettiest
face. It doesn't matte, about a
boy, but the small girl does
violence to beauty andyoulh by
rullling her forehead or lluliiu'
her brow. It is, too, a habit
acquired very early in life.
After her pouting days are over
she begins to frown, and keeps
on frowning until old enough to
realize the banefulness of the
habit, lu othe words, each
ridge Is supposed to add a de
cade to her apparent age.
It is the great delusion in the
world for a boy to get the idea
that his life is of no consequen
ce, and that the character of it
will not be noticed. A matily,
truthful boy will shine like a
star in any community. A boy
may pos-ess as much of noble
character as a man. lie may
so speak and live the truth tl at
there shall be no discount on
his word. And there are such
noble boys, aud wider and
deeper than any are apt to think
is theii inlluencc. They are
the king noys amuug muu
fellows, having an immense in
fluence for good, and loved and
respected because of the simple
fact of living the truth. Dr.
Kingsbury in Wil. Messenger.
