Topics of the Day.
DANCER IN IT.
Senator Ay cock, of Wayne, agrees
with The Caucasian in condemn
ing the proposition of the Wilming
ton & Weldon Kailroad Company,
that was accepted by the ltailway
Investigating Committee. What is
the proposition? In sulstance it is
about as follows:
That for a consideration of about
520,000 taxes, ti be paid by the Wil
mington & Weldon Railroad Com
pany, that the State enter into a con
tract with said company that it
shall never be taxed more than above
amount and that certain rights and
privileges be granted the compauy,
viz: That the capital stock of said
company be increased toi?10.000.000.
in all resiects like the stock before
issued, that thtt company have the
right to eonsolidate with or buy any
oiner railway or stock of other com
panies or to enter into any traffic
agreement it may desire without
I urther permission or consent from
In the first issue of our paper, af
ter the proiosition was accepted by
the committee to be recommended
to the next General Assembly, we
said that it would not do. We give
warning that there . was aj Trojan
horse in it. No people can aflbrd to
grant such extraordinary and per
petual privileges for such a pittance
of taxation, and any Legislature that
would swallow the bait would bo
untrue to the people. We are op
posed to accepting a cent of taxation
that comes loaded with such a bur
den. Senator Avcock. who was a
member of tho committee, voted
against accepting the proposition
and we are glad to see him out in a
card giving his reasons. His card is
as follows :
After maturely considering the
proposition of the Wilmington &
Weldon Itailroad Company in the
draft of a bill submitted to this com
mittee, I am "compelled to dissent
from tho action of the committee
recommending the acceptance of tho
proposition for the following rea
1. The powers given to make con
nection, and "the general privileges
bestowed by the bill on the company
are too general and far reaching, the
grant of unlimited powers ot consol
idations being, in my opinion, capa
ble of being so used as to prove in
jurious to the interest of the people
of the State.
2. The valuation of the railroad
bed of tho main track is fixed at not
more than ?S,000 per mile, and that
of the branches at not more than
$1,000 per mile, and the State bound
by contract not to exceed these val
uations for purposes of taxation,
thereby putting the property of the
corporation upon a different footing
from that of the private tax-payer.
I think the valuation ought to be
made under the general law, and
not restricted, as is proposed. If the
State should be bound by such a con
tract as is proposed, the value of the
road-bed might double and treble,
but the tax value would remain al
ways the same.
3. Under the proposed hill the
property of the company, the value
of which has not yet been ascertain
ed, other than the road-bed, locomo
tives, engines, cars ana other rolling
stock, would escape taxation.
4. The bill limits perpetually the
rate of taxation, fixes the valuation
of the road-bed for all time, and
recognizes and approves the princi
ple that one law ot taxation ma-' ex
ist for the property of a corporation
and another for the taxation of that
of the individual.
I thin'. the surrender of exemp
tion should be made with fewer con
ditions, and I believe if it were so
made the company could safely rely
upon obtaining from tho Legislature
such privileges as it might reasona
ably ask, and such as may be neces
sary to it in the conduct of it busi
ness. The railroads of the State have
been trusted hy the Legislature with
unequalled power, and they have no
reason to fear any unreasonable re
fusal of legislation in their behalf.
G. The alleged contract, whereby
the company has always claimed its
exemption from taxation, has been
and still is a source of irritation to
the people of the State, and a con
stant source of annoyance to the tax
ing powers, and I am not in favor of
the State entering into any new con
tract with this company or any other
which shall have for its effect the
suggestion of any claim of exemp
tion from taxation or the curtailing
of the right of the State to derive
revenue rom any and every species
of property within its territory.
In arriving at these conclusions, I
am not insensible of the great bene
fit which will be derived to the peo
ple of this State by the contribution
of so large a sum to the Treasury as
the company has pioposed, which
would yield to the State and coun
ties about $20,000 yer annum, but
seeing the dai ger of such legislation
has led me to the conclusion. thf t
that the proposed legislation would
I regret that I am unoble to con
cur with the majority of the com-
iet us strive for a reduction of
taxation on the necessaries of life
for a reduction of tho expenditures
of the government for an increase
of the currency and the price of farm
products by the free coinage of sil
ver and the restoration of its full
legal tender character for the ro
lal of the tax upon State banks
for the regulation of transportation
rate's by railroad commissions, and
Ja.-f, but not least, let us earnestly
contend against the spirit of central
ization, which is constantly threat
ening to absorb the local, wdl-gov-ernment
of the people of the States.

OUli CONGRESSIONAL N03II
NKE. It was eminently fitting that
tho Democrats of the 3rd Con
gressional District should the
other day at Clinton invest
with the highest honors in
their gift one whose life, though
hitherto comparatively remov
ed from public view, has been
replete with valued services to
his fellow-men. A graduate of
the University of his 'native
State, which lie honors by his
ripe scholarship and varied at
tainments, li. F. Grady, after
four years of service to his
country in the field given with
tho self-abnegation and devo
tion to principle characteristic
of thtj man has consecrated
his intellectual vigor and prime
to the great work of a field
where the laurels are unfading;
the promotion of tho interests
of both higher and common
school education. As Superin
tendent of Public Instruction
in his county, in the class-room,
iu the lecture-hall, in the
columns of the press, he has
been always an educator in the
test sense of the word, a soul
ful laborer in the task of free
ing the youthful mind from the
trammels of ignorance, and
elevating it to the broader and
brighter domain of intelligence.
A member of the Farmers' Al
liance, Mr. Grady is a consistent
friend of tho agricultural in
terests, while his liberal and
advanced views ou all imDor-
tant subjects render him a well
chosen representative of every
class of the people.
It is especially seemlv. too.
that the convention by its nomi
nation made recognition of the
past services of Mr. Grady's na
tive county, DuDlin. and cast
about its splendid Democratic
recoil the wreath of victorv.
The "banner" countv of tho
district goes into this fight with
its own gallant standard-bearer.

To my friends of the Third

I thank you for it I deeply,
profoundly and sincerely ap

As you have supported me, I

Commissioner of Agriculture
liobinson writes that after hav
ing travelled over the greater
portion of the cotton producing
section of the State, he has nev
er seen a 1etter prospect for a
good crop, and the same is true
also of tobacco, another "mon
ey" crop. la consequence of
this cheerful outlook the far
mers are hopeful and in good
spirits. In addition to this he
says that the crops, as fair aa
they promise, have cost less to
produce than any previous vear
attributable not alone to the
favorable seasons, but also to
the unusual economy practiced
by the farmer?. With no mis
baps between nor and harvest
time he is of opinion that our
farmers will have more money
at the close ot the present vear
than at any time in the past
ten years. wi I. Star.

IJlow of a Sled Stake
Harvey A. Smith had a desperate bat
tle at Presipie Island, Me., with a stal
lion. The stallion is dead and Smith
still Jives, but is iu a sadly crippled con
dition. Dining last winter lie drove a
team in the lumlier wtnxls, of which one
animal was a stallion that no one but
Smith could handle. This summer ho
has worked the stallion and his mate on
the farm. Yesterday the stallion Ie
came vicious and frantically attained
his mate wit i teet'i and hoofs. Mr.
Smith uncoupled the horses, when tho
stallion attacked him. He is a jiowerful
and very resolute man, and after a fierce
struggle, in which he was severely
wounded in the hip by the animal's feet,
he succeeded in sulKluing the horse and
leading him to the bam. He hitched
him on the luirn floor, removed the har
ness and was proceeding to take him to
a stall when the vicious animal again
attacked him. The wind, blew the barn
door shut and Mr. Smith found himself
imprisoned with the frantic bruU.
For nearly half an hour he fought him
with no weajion but his fists, but being
often knocked down and fearfully
bruised he found bus stieugth failing
and was just making up his mind that
it was all up with hiin, when the horso
disengaged a sled take from the side of
the mow and Smith saw it rolling to
ward him. Seizing the slake he swung
it with all the strength of desperation,
and, striking the stallion behind the ear,
ho laid him dead at his feet.

The State Department has received a
dispatch from Lansing B. Mizner, United
States minister resident in Central
America, stating that he was at a place
called Meutou, in Gautemala, and tliat
he was in communication with the com
manders of the United States vessels
Thetis and Ranger. Mr. Mizner says
nothing about the bloody conflicts sup
posed to be in progress between Gaute
mala and Salvador, or the reported out
breaks against the administration of
General Barillas, which are said to be
starting up in several provinces in Gau
temala. He also failed to refer in any
way to the recent seizure of arms on the
Pacific mail steamer Coliina by the Gau
temalan authorities, as to the facts of
which he lias been instructed by the
State Department to report Mr. Miz
ner's silence as to all important particu

has not received the dispatches sent him
during the last fortnight, or that the
Gautemalan government will not allow
him to give out the particulars of any
of the internal affairs of the country.
The telegram came through Minister
Ryan at Mexico.
