LE01SLA1URE OF 1899.
In olden times peace jubilees wen
held after the etd of a war, but w.
are now so modern that we hold
peace jubilees while we fight.
While Wasbirgton is iolding in
gTejU peace jubilee, they should no.
overlook the fact tbat each day a
number of our soldiers are beinp tare. Bat every legislature is pre
shot down in the Pnillipines auo sumed to b . honest and patriotic and

ease in ibat trop'-cal climate as are
dvina from bullet wounds.
Washington is making great prep-
aratiou tor a grand peace jabilee. 1
it possible that Washington think
thosit are peaca victories we are hav

we ar shooting down our own sub

Tbo salary of the mayor of Wil
mington has been increased from
91.200 to $1 800. Thus mayor Wad
dtll gets additional relief for his ser
vices in organ sing the mob to burn
houses and murder people in Wil
mingtou in the last campaign. S j tbe
eij yment of this eighteen hundred
dollar salary would indicate that
there was method in his madness and
anarchistic speeches alter all.
The Corporation Commission,
which by tbe act of tbe last legisla
tare succeeded tbe Bailroad Com
mission has held a meeting ant de
cided not to reduce freight and pass
enger rates not to trj any of the caf
es tbat were pending before the R R
Commission. Thus, bo far, they are
cairying oat the contract that wt
no dfubt made by mmon and the
machine with the railroads when thej
put up large amounts of mon-y f . r
tm, campaign fund. This is indeed
the Corporation'. Commission.
Oar readers will remember that
sometime last February a negr
postmaster named Baker, wis unr
der d at Like City, S. C. It seemed
that Baker l.ved in tbe back part of
the building ia which he kept tbe
post tfflue. Tbe murderers set fire to
the house with Biker and his family
in it, and then shot Baker and each
member of bis family as they ran
oat, fleeing from the flumes. Baker

aa proptrly declared the law, accor- L
ling to a loDg lioe of previous decis

thick the decision of the court in th
;nse of Hoko va Henderson, and all
subsequent decisions along the sam
tine, as bad law and untortanate de-
ijiiions, to say the least. The d 8
lentirg opiuioa of Justice Clark
seems to have the arguments of j is
tice and common seme behind it. We
io not think any legislature should
be able to pass aoy law which a sub
s' qu-nt legislature could not repial
or amend; and surtly the interests ot
the Htate fchould always ba para
mount to the property interests that
any ffiue h Ider might have a claim
in t fH h held under the State. We
