trol the action of C
. -j .. iU.j t'ouiK iaa3 con-
ongref-s at the coming
ession? In view of recent opinion Xrr
ed by politicians this qu-,tion is both perti
nent ana important. If the politicans have
th'.Jr way the public demand, whi :h U well
nigh general, regards of politic, that Con
gress shall do something tor the betterment
of the country's finances aud for the preven
tion of thi.-.?ue of more bonds f jrth mony

legislation be virtually oiiflrwl to th regu
lar appropriation bili.. The argument.0 of
thepolitieiani.sthat it wiil b impossible
for Congress to pui; any ilnaa?ial l-jin'.ati m,
because a bill that t!n Il-publi-an lions';
would pass could not got through the Smi
ate, which will be controlled by neither
party, owing to next y -u's Pro.-i I nti i!
-ampaign and the consequent drawing of
party lines on all important legislation.0 To
aecept that argument is to dvl:iro to the
world that patriotism has boon driven out of
Congress by partisanship, and that the fear
of a loss of votes in the Presidential election
outweighs the demands of the people at large
for financial legislation. The great mass of
the people do not care a ?nap for partisan
ship, although most men are for one or
another reason connected with a political
party and during an exciting campaign be
come partisans to a certain extent. But
when there is no campaign, on the mass
are far more interested iu earning a living
than in partisanship. They have learned i t
their cost that our present system of finance
imposes unnecessary burdens upon the earn
ing of that livelihood. They want tho.-e
burdens removed, and are not likely to be
satisfied with the politicians excuse that
Congress cannot legislate because of parti
sanship. Next year there will he another
Congress elected as well as a President.
That fact should not escape the politicians
Although some of the members of the Sons
of the Revolution, the Sons of the American
Revolution and the Daughters of the Ameri
can Revolution are inclined to h-i fussy and
big-hea led and to make monkeys of them
selves upon occasion, as a wholo those or
ganizations are doing the country good,
parti .'ularly in tho work they are doing to
wards increasing and fostering patriotism iu
our schools, a field which had been, especial
ly in our large cities, largely neglected be
fore it was taken up by these organizations,
and which is hound to havo an important
bearing upon the future of our country.
Tbeso remarks are occasioned by the pres
ence of the Liberty I3!J, which was allowed
t remain in Washington two hours, after
which it resumed its journey from Philadel
phia to Atlanta, where it is to be one of the
exhibits at tho exposition. A great out-door
public reception, under tho auspices of tho
members of tho three societies named and
participated in by officials, citizens and
school children, was hel l in honor of the
bell. Tho Marino Band furnished the music,
and the guard of honor for the historic relic
was made up from, members of the High
School cadets. It is well that all of us should
occasionally stop in our mad rush and brush
up our patriotism a little. It's a thing that
no peoplo can have too much of.

AgHiu.it the Tobacco Trust.
Last July Juilge Charles II. Simon
ton, of the United States court, heard
at Abbeville the argument iu the case
of the Bousacdc Machine Company and
the American Tobacco Company against
y. F. Hmith and other North Carolina
cigarette men. The suit was for in
fringement of the Bonsack cigarette
machine patents by the Biigga ma
chine, invented by W. C. Briggs, of
Winston, N. C. The judge haa ren
dered an opinion, in which it is ad
judged that the Briggs machine is not
an infringement, and tho bill was dis
missed with coeds.
This decision i3 against the tru.st, bo
called. Heretofore the American To
bacco Company, which has the exclu
niG right to the Bonsack machines,
under contract with n yearly royalty
of a quarter of a million dollars has
been, it is claimed, able to control the
market irices for bright tobacco. If
Judge Himonton's decision stands, the
market will bo open to the anti-trust
machine, and manufacturers outside
the trut will be able to compete from
the purchaKe of the tobacco to the sale
of the cigarette.
.Tn course of hi3 decision Judge
Kimouton .aid: "Cigarettes are not
an article of j-iimo necessity: Indeed
their use, if not always deltterious.cnu
Fciirctly be naid to be beneficial. The
puldic mind has been aroused to abus

looking to their suppression. There
can lie no reason for the interference
of the courts iu Ki cuiiug their uuinier

In the Lorthea-iern connties many

be put through the hiw mill an I the
planing mill, and iu the western coun
ties of tha Sttite, mauy thousands of
hard v.ood logs are annually lloated
down the streams into Tennessee.
This custom results in great loss to th3

Certainly the industries in tho Stato
growing out of our forest products are
of vast importance, and should be en
couraged in every possibly way.
HOW LONG WILL OtJB FOBESTS LAST?
During the past fw decades the great
white pine forests of the North have been cut
nt an enormously rapid rate, and with a
recklessness characteristic of the American
lumberman. During the past few years the
lumbermen in different portions of the coun
try havo been turning their attention to
Southern supplies of pino and hard woods,
and these are now being bought up and cut
at a rapid rate; and before our people conio
to realize our situation, our supposed inex
haustible foreste will be largely removed. In
tho eastern couniies, at the present rate cf
cutting, in less than two decades our sup
plies of pine will have been exhausted, and
the great hard wood forests of tho Piedmont
and mountain counties will in the same time
have be'n cut, or purchased by the mill
inn and held by them as reserve supplies.
The sooner, then, that our people can
bo brought to abandon the long prevailing
belief that they havo more timber than they
know what to "do with, and consequently an?
willing to almost give it away; and the
sooner they can be brought to realize the
fart that tho valuable supplies of timber
whieh they are now selling to the mill men
at the low prices, cannot be replaced in their
day and feneration; the sooner they come
to understand that under our present system
of cutting timber, thev not only use up the
supply belonging to the prespnt generation,
but in destroying the young growth of the
frosts they are destroying tho birth-ribt of
the next generation, without any additional
return to themselves, the sooner will it le
possible to have adopted a wise and con
servative policy which, whilo it permits the
use oi th'3 mature timoer or today, it also
preserves the young forest growth, which is
to be tho timber supply of to-morrow.
Let us understand, then, that our present
timber supply is not inexhaustible; that in
many places it has already been nearly or
quite removed; that in cutting the mature
l roes with characteristic recklessness, we are
also destroying in a lare measure the young
forest growth; that at the present rate of
euttiog. our forest supplies can iast but a
few decades longer; that in the use of our
forests we should do everything possible to
encourage the development within the StAte
of lumber manufacturing jstablishments, in
order that our lumber may be manufactured
at home; and that in cutting our forests
every ellort should be made o protect the
young tree growth. J. A. Holmes, State

ed by the drought, and turnips are
nearly ruined. Gathering corn is un
der way, but fall plowing continues at

turnips, aud killing young berry
plants. Wells and streams are low,
and sonie mills have utopiied running.
Cotton, which has opened very rapid

be all out by the eud of October. Corn

792 with liabilities of 32,1C7,179, averaging
111,521 per firm against $ 10,028 last year,
about 15 ier cent. more. The rate of com
mercial mortality, 231 failures in a quarter
for every 1,000 firms in business, is lower
thnn last year and the proportion of default
ed liabilities to tho solvent, represent! by
payments through clearing houses, is but
2.49 ?ier $1,000 against 2.77 last year.
