The diapoeition of political par
ties to legislate for party purposes
sad not keep their faith with the
people is causing a great many
good and intelligent men to stand
aloof, or "slosh around loose." as
yoa call it.
The result of last Tuesday elec
tions renews tbe confidence of the
Democrats of their ability to re
elect President Cleveland. But
saoeh depends upon the work to be
done by the first session of the
Fiftieth Congress. If it will heed
tne demand of the Democratic plat
form of New York and straightway
reduce tbe revenues of the govern
meat one hundred millions or dol

John Slchol favors the repeal ofPIic3"'
tbe internal revenue law, and will
bs bolt the Republican caucus if a
candidate who does not agree with
kins on this point is nominated for
Speaker? We believe the entire
delegation from North Carolina,
both Democrats and Republicans,
favor the repeal of the internal
revenue laws, while in other States
. both oppose tbe repeal. We don't
know whether or not Ma. Simmons

rest assured that Mr. Simmons is
sincere in declaring in favor of the

and he will not bolt the caucus.

The Progressive Farmer but
voices the sentiments of the Joru
5 AX. uttered seven ysars ago when
it says that oar so-called system for
working oar pablio roads is not
only shamefully raefBcient, but is
grossly onjnst. The present system
is in violation of every principle of
Justice, and is a relic of involuntary
servitude which should in this en
lightened age be inflicted only ou
criminals. Several years ago our
friend Dorsey Battle, then of the
Taboro Southerner, proposed to
remedy the matter by a wheel tax.
It was a new and novel idea but far
more in accord with justice and
equity than the present system.
It is to be hoped that the counties
bow working their convicts on tbe
public reads will find that it is
profitable. If i: is, the next Gen
eral Assembly will be called upon
to pass a general law in regard to
the matter, so that any county may
unite with other counties if neces
eary snd work their convicts on the
public roads instead of sending
them to the penitentiary to be
tgansfered from there to some rail
road corporation.

If any newspaper wanted a con

taWOTJMAX was inconsistent in
wanting the tyttem changed from a
Federal to a State system. The

favor of any such thing. We favor
tbe repeal of tbe internal revenue
law because it is taking money

The Journal is not in favor of
free whiskey aud tobacco. It want
these articles taxed by the State as
other property is taxed and the
money paid into the S.ate and
county treasuries where it is need

tent in newspapers who adhere
strictly to the doctrine of State
rights, oppose anything like a "pa-
ternal government," and at the
same time proclaim that whiskey !
and tobacco are free unless the
money collected from the same, by
a Federal system, goes into the
treasury at Washington where the
corruption fund is already too
large. We thought the States had
a right to tax these articles as well
as carts, wagons, household furni
ture and other personal property,
but those who are in love with Fed

The following paragraph is from
the Statesville Landmark:
The letter of Congressman Sim
mons, of the second district of this
State, on the internal revenue sys
tern, which letter is printed on the
first page ot this paper, has the
ring of true metal. This system is
not felt to be oppressive in his sec
tion, but Mr. Simmons' patriotism
is at least as broad as the State,
and he engages to enser neart. ana
sout with our other Congressmen
in the work of seenriug its repeal.
In like manner the Can by system
of electing magistrates by the peo
pie worked no dangers or hardships
in the west; bat the western ieople
have breadth and patriotism
enough to waive the trifling privi
lege ot voting for magistrates in
order to give their eastern brethren
the benefits of a system under
which they canlive. Mr. Simmons
has the good sense to see and un-
'Carolina can afford to resist a

Yes, Mr. Simmons has the good
! sense to see tuat no section in
j North Carolina cau afford to resist a
immaterial to it, which is of
the most vital importance to some
other section of the State. Nothing
has been of more vital importance
to this section, nor aroused the poo
pie more than the extension o( the
A. & N. C. E. to tbe C. F. & V. V.
To give the Landmark a little in
sight into the interest the people j
of this section take in this matter, j
we recall a conversation had with:
one of our most prominent men, an
unflinching Democrat, a large prop
erty holder and a firm advocate ol
the present system of county gov
ernment. Said he, "if I were a
member of the next General As
sembly and the question should
turn upon whether we should se
cure the extension of the A. & N.
C. B. from Goldsboro to Fayette
ville and a connection with the C
F. & Y.V. or surrender county gov
ernment, I would say let county
government go."
This is but a fair sample of the
interest that our people feel m this
measure. It is one of great impor
tance to this section and it cuts to
the quick when we find opposition
from a section that will not be hurt
by carry ing out the policy we ak.
It is gratifying to know that our
extreme Western brethren do not
oppose us in this measure. The
opposition comes from in and
around Raleigh where our enemies
seem to have a powerful influence.
They have circulated wilful misrep
resentations in order to indicate
the Governor in his course. The
news has been sent oat and scat
tered broadcast over the State that
the people of this section wanted
to saddle the A. N. C. K. with an
additional debt ol f 700,000 for the
purpose of extending it only fifty
miles. Of course the Governor is
commended for not listening to sach
a monstrous proposition
When our Western brethren
wanted the State to lease or sell her
interest in the Western N. C. E.
the East did not raise a howl about
sacrificing tbe State's interest.
Lion. W. T. Dortch opposed the
measure in the special session of
the General Assembly because he
thought the State could and ought
to complete the woik and save a
splendid property. But the masses
of the Eastern people were willing
for the West to have their railroad
regardless of the sacrifice the State
would make in the disposition of it.
But now when oor Eastern people
want to bo freed from the embargo
placed upon our products and put
ourselves in a position to deal witb
the people of our own State, either
by an extension of the A. & N. C.
R. or a sale of Paid road to the C.F.
& Y. V. paying the State one
ickat it cct her, there is a tremen
dous howl about the great sacrifice
Tbe price offered is a preminm
when compared with the price paid
for the W. X. C, yet this howl Is
raised, and e of the East attribute
it to tbe influence of the powers
that oppress us.
No matter how many endorse
ments the Governor gets concern-
ing uis course, tue minus or me
people in this section are unalter
ably fixed, and they have not been
fixed upon misrepresentations.

The Wilmington Messenger de
nounces the gerrymandering of
New York State by the Republi
cans which enables them to elect a
majoiity of the members of the
Legislature, notwithstanding the
State is largely Democratic, as an
infamous measure which causes the
State to be misrepresented in the
United States Senate.
We used to think it was one of
the meanest of political tricks un-
til the Democrats took it up. Since
then we have come to look upon
it as a sort of political advantage
1 that all parties use, and is recog
1 nized by political leaders as per
fectly legitimate, viewing it from a
political standpoint. The Messen
ger says :
'Thieving, highway robbery, bur-
glary, anything under heaven is as
honest as the state of things which eives
a defeated party the rewards that be
long of right to the victors.
Does the Messenger mean to say
that the General Assembly of North
Carolina of lSSl-'S,") committed
thievery mid hif h way robbery, or
something ju.t as bad. when the
judicial districts were gerryman
dered T To give an idea of this
splendid piece of gerrymandering
let us mention a few facts: Craven
' county is in the second judicial
district : on the Fast and North-
' east it touches counties of the first
district; on the North and North
west it touches a county of the
thiri district ; on the South, South-
, east anJ Southwest it touches coun-
t ties of the sixth district, but no
where does it touch a county of the
district to which it belongs.
W hen this job was completed by
tbe General Assembly the people
of Craven felt and feel yet that they
were badly treated. But we never
felt disposed to be so severe on the
I General Assembly as the Messen-
1 ger is, or rather as It is on the Re
publican New York Legislature
its condemnation is applicable to
both. If a Republican steals a hog
i: is called larceny: if a Democrat
steals one it is called larceny. If it
is mean and infamous for Republi
cans to errymander it is just as
mean and infamous for Democrats
to gerrymander, and we think a
i little more so because better things
are expected of them.
The great aim of a political party
should le to do right. Wrong may
; succeed for a time but it will event
! ually redound on the perpetrators.
Partisan legislation is a two edged
sword : whenever it is made to cut
, in one direction the time will soon
! roll around when it will make a
j swipe in the opposite direction and
'cut the identical hand off that
first wielded it. Gerrymandering
is one ot tne partisan sworils ; it
ouht to bo beaten into scales of
honesty, integrity right, and justice

Tauilico County Debt.
Editor JotkNAL : Although
Pamlico county has voted against
the proposition to issue bonds for
the settlement of the railroad debt,
still tbe plain fact stares her tax
payers in the face, that something
must bo done to rid them of this
heavy tax. Year after year this
tax must be borne until the debt
has been satisfied. Other counties
are free from debt, have handsome
public buildings, and have money
in their treasuries. With unsur
passed resources of land and water,
Pamlico is limping along under
this troublesome debt. What can
be done to start her on a career of
prosperity awaiting her in the near
future 7
1. Ascertain with certainty the
exact status of this debt. Compe
tent legal and financial counsel
would soon solve the problem.
-. Let commissioners respective-
j ly appointed by Craven and Famli
; co counties confer and agree on
what terms in cash the dobt can
be set lied.
3. If these terms shall be accent
able to the Jus' ices of each county,
apply to the ensuing L-gislatuie
i for authority to issue bonds in
'settlement of the debt on the basis
I agreed upon.
j 1. If no eiiu'.:ab!e agreement can
: be reached by the commissioners,
let the case be adjudicated in court.
: aud then the bonds issiud to cover
the. debt there determined.
5. Immediately on issuing the
bonds le the county begiu to raise
fuuds to pay the interest on the
bonds and each year to extinguish
some ot the principal; until in a
series of years the county shall be
tree from debt. The amount col
lected each year should bear as
lightly as possible on our farming
and industrial interests. To talk
of repudiation is madness; the
debt must be settled if we would
see our county prosper. In the
meantime let every unnecessary
office in the county be abolished,
rigid economy practiced in the ex
penditure of public money ; so that
the additional tax on account of
the bonds may not oppress.
I think it would be well for those
entrusted with the final settling of
the debt to be elected by the people.
Too nice a regard to the wishes of
the voters cannot be observed in
all matters affecting the public
interets. It is hardly necessary to
add that the stock of Pamlico coun
ty in tbe A. cc N. C. Railroad should
be immediately sold and applied in
settlement of the debt.
In conclusion, I will say it is an
easy thing to cry out "taxes !
taxes!" to frighten those who do
not care to trouble themselves with
much thought. But amid all the
din and confusion of politicians
this proposition will remain true:
Pamlico county will never reach the
high plain of general prosperity
until she is free from debt.
Next year will be the crucial test
ot the strength of North Carolina
Democracy ; but no question in tbe
political contest of 1S88 will more
concern the voters of Pamlico coun
ty than the settlement of her rail
road debt.

Col. Jno. D. Whitford, of New
Berne, who lias charge of a f iroe of
woikmen in the government work
of moving obstructions in our navi
gable streams under the river and
harbor bill, was recently in the city
and gave a reporter an interesting
account of the methods in use and
the success of the woik. This
force is now clearing out the chan
nel of Contentnea creek, in Greene
county, between Snow Hill and
Stantonsburg. The work is done
from a large and powerful floating
derrick operated by steam power
and the obstructions removed are
mainly stumps, logs and snags,
some of which arc of immense size.
Single stumps six or eight feet in
diameter are common and frequent
ly make over a cord of wood each.
If the obstruction is loose or de
tached in 6uch a way as to make
the steam derrick to grapple and
lift it out then the work is rapid
Most of the stumps and many ol
the logs require blasting, to break
up and loosen them from their beds
For this purpose they use very long
augers for boring deep holes into
the wood, sunk several feet under
water, and these holes are after
wards charged with dynamite car
tridges and the wires leading from
each charge properly connected
witk the main wires leading to the
electric apparatus stationed in the
cabin of tbe boat. When all is
ready one touch ot a lever explodes
every cartridge simultaneously and
produces a terrible commotion upon
everything movable in the immed
iate vicinity. Stumps, logs, mud
ana water rise in one immense
fountain, and pieces weighing a ton
are otten thrown over the tops of
the neighboring trees. Of course
the boat with its machinery is pre
vionsly moved to a safe distance.
Every living thing in the wav of
fish, frogs, etc.. which happen to be
lingering within fifty l'eet or more
are usually killed instantly by the
explosion aud quickly gathered up
by the operatives, who eat them.
Fish sometives receive such a shock
as to stun theni temponally but
afterwords fully recover, whilst
others are killed stone dead but
show no mark or wound. It is
probably a matter of supreme as
tonishment and wonder to a slow
and sedate mud turtle to be thus
rudely torn from its native ele
ment aud sent on a forced flight

Benefl's of the Moon.
The moon ministers to the human
wants in several ways that are not
so. apparent as its light-giving func
tion, although some of them are
much more important. It is by
observing the position of the moon
with reference to the fixed stars
that the navigator determines his
loDgitude. Upon the revolution of
tbe moon about the earth is based
a convenient division of time, the
month, intermediate between that
furnished by the earth's daily rota
tioa aud its revolution through its
orbit. Doubtful points in ancient
chronology hayj been frequently
settled by means ol the eclipses of
the moon, the dates of which could
be accurately determined. The in
tervention of the moon in eclipsing
the sun gave astronomers the op
portunities for obtaining their first
knowledge in regard to the solar
envelope. But the largest eneets
on human welfare are produced by
the moon-through the agency of
the tides. Twice a day the decora
posing organic matter brought
down to the seashore by rivers, or
deposited along the water's edge by
human agency, is swept away by
the tidal wave in its course around
the globe. Thii sanitary service
which the moon performs is of in
conceivable value. In many har
bors large ships and heavily-loaded
rafts and barges are moved from
the entrance to their wharves,
miles above, by that 6low but
powerful tug, the flood tide. An
amount of work is thus done which
if it had to be provided by artificial
means, would cost for such a port
as London thousands, perhaps mil
lions, ot pounds yearly. Popular
The word lioneymooD, or first
month of married life, is said to be

Start ah btjrg, S. C. April 2. 1887.
Of ntlemen For twenty ream I have had
asoreonmy lert cheek. It had gradually
been growlug worse. The many physicians
whom I had consulted were unable to do
me any good. Iaat fall a year ego I began
using S. S. 8. At first It Inflamed the sore,
and It became more virulent than ever ; so
much so. Indeed, that my family Insisted
that I should leave oft the medicine. 1 per
sisted In using the S. S. S. At the end of twa
months the sore wasfntirely healed. Think
ing that the evil won out of my constitution,
I left off the medicine; but t November,
ten months after, a very slight breaking out
appeared. I at once began agirin on S S. S.,
and uow that is also disappearing. 1 have
every faith In S. S. S. It has done me more
good than all the doctors and other medi
cines i ever tooi. Youxa truly,
Winston-, N. C-. April i. 1SS7.
Gentlemen Two or three years ago a can
cer came on uiv face. It soon grew to be
quite lars'C. It wore on me. aud my gt neral
health was vei v poor. Lat September I
began a course of S. S. 8., which I have con
tinued to the present time with the happiest
result. The cancer has entirely disappeared,
there being no evidence or symptom of a
cancerous character left. My general health
Is good now, and my appetite Deittr than It
has been in years. Iam 85 years old, and
to day I nm w orking ilT the held plaining
corn- Yours truly, Jokas LmtBACH.
Gentlemcn-I had a sore en my upper lip
for eight years. Seven different doctors at
tempted In vain to heal it. One gave me a
small vial for Ave dollars, which was a " cer
tain cure." It 18 needless to say that It did
me no good. About two years ago I became
quite uneasy, as people thought I had a can
cer, and I took a course of eighteen bottles
of S. S. S. The result has been a complete
cure. The ulcer or cancer healed beautiful
ly, leaviug scarcely a perceptible sear. From
that dav f have been in excellent health, the
Speeinc having purified my blood thorough
ly. Increased iny appetite and perfected my
digestion. In a word, I feel like a new
woman, and, best of all, the eight year uloer
U gone entirely. Yours sincerely,
