The Washington Critic says : Hon.
S. B Elkms, Biaine's political mana
ger in was recently asked to
give his views in regard to reducing
the surplus, and in reply discour-e 1
H° follews :
" The re-ult of my thought and
study on the subject leads me to be
her* the internal revenue should be
entire! T abolished. Thu would re
duce taxes about £100.000,000 per
•annum, save the expenses ot their
collectors, about jf4. and
i.lispenae with the services of 4.000
clerks and officers. I have been in
! favor of this for ten years. It is a
war tax, which lias never been inrok
1 r d except in case of emergency;
l n
when emergencT has passed S\V;IT
" . *
; the tax has been abolished. It i.-> ob
jectionable, and lias always b rn re
( garded HS odiou> and inqui-itoria l

. stitutions.
" Nearly a quaiterof act ntui\ ha*

is. not how to raise money. 1;:.t 1
to * pr tent )t* accumulation in ti •

hl'fitor Press and Carolinian:
DHAH SIK :—I happened t>
hold of a late number of vour ex K
lent paper, which I always read with
pleasure on account of its high posi
tion on the temperance question,
amongst other good qualities. But
I am a little surprised that you have
not called the attention of th*» gener
' al public, and especially the officer
| of the law, to the late decision of the
Supreme Court in the case of the
State vs. Patterson and Kennedy, in
, which it is held that all distillers of
grain and fruit who diet ill anvthin-'
► ir>
not produced on their own farms
and sell in quantity both over and
1 under firo gallons, as they all do.
are liable to a tax of $250 per annum.
Now the? question is, whose bu-im
is it to make these gentry "fork
over i Another feature of fir
thing in which the public are inter
eated is that all license money i \«* j •
the wholesale tax goes to the com
mon schools. Let us try and hav.
this law executed, and in so dt»in«\ 1
think we will get rid of a large num
ber of the distilleries now in opera

f"h« Tobacco Plpi In CLIWW
The Chinese use a handsome little
water pipe maoe entirely of bra.-* or
silver. It is ail in one piece except the
bowl and neck, which ia merely a tube
with an upper chamber for tiie tobacco.
The merest pinch of .ong cut touacco
tills the bowl, and one tilling is on y ex
pected to provide one or two w hills." The
hodv of tne pif>e contains a neat com
partment for tobacco, ihe long, claw- '
like naiis of the Celestial are i.sed m
reaching in this little box lor a p.n h of
to. a* co as deltly as a pair of tweezers.
Long stnps of prejiared pap r are u.-»ed i
for 1 his paper slowly,
and w iien required lor lighting the pipe
is b.own into a tlame t>y a peculiar j>u.f.
Any t elestial nian, woman or chiM «an
produce tnis llau.e with a fingie pu 1,
but a i.uropcan acquires the saine ability
oniy by considerable practice. As each
tiding provinces only a coupU* of pus,
the pip • has to be rehlbd o\er and over

1 he rapidity with which a devote# of
this pipe liliS it, pulls the paper into a
