i Coneress will do away with one
strong argument in favor of a re
duction of the tariff by removing
the surplus and causing a demand
for more revenue.
Very well, to the people they are
unanswerable, and to them they
must give account. Extravagant
administration is no apology for
exorbitant taxation. Tbe demand
of the people is for an economical
administration, and nothing else
will satisfy them. Our Republican
friends are "piling up wrath against
the day of wrath," and nothing can
save them from the fiery indigna
tion of an outraged people.
From the beginning there has
been a tendency towards central
ization, in the General Govern
ment, which wits accelerated by the
war and the events that followed
it, but never has centralization
been more pronounced than it is in
the proposition of Senator Chandler
to amend tbe Constitution so that
"if any State shall fail to enact or
B effectually enforce laws against
murder, and other felonies, Con
gress may provide for punishing
those crimes within such State."
Chandler's reputation is not the
most savory. He is remarkable
for political ledgerdemain rather
than for statesmanship. Tbe un
iniatiated may suppose that he is
influenced by reverence for law and
commiseration of suffering, but
those who know him realize that be
is playing the part of a partisan
Tbe Chandler bill is an insidious
attack on tbe South, and is de
signed to draw attention to homi
cides as evincing a connition of
affairs that will justify tbe inter
position of tbe Federal Govern
ment. There is no evidence that
the courts are remiss in their
duties ( and if at any time there is
a seeming disposition to shirk
duty, the righteous indignation of
the people compels obedience to
the obligations of law and thede
mands of justice.
Tbe Chandler bill is a direct
assault upon the American system
of government. It is subversive of
State's rights and personal liberty.
Congress cannot pass the bill with
out usurping rights reserved to the
States, and obliterating the safe-
guards of tbe people.
There is no probability of the
passage of the bill. It would be
revolution. New York would not
submit to it. Rhode Island would
rebell ngaiust it. It is the hideous
parade of the spirit despotism, but
it is destitute of its power.
Tbe Republicans in Congress
dare not pass the bill. If they do,
it will br another verification of

Asheville Citiaen : The planting of
trees on nr. vander bill's estate has
been discontinued for the present. One
hundred and twenty acres have been
ploughed up and planted with white
pines, which have been arranged in
rows aeven feet apart with a .pace of
five feet between the trees in the same
row. This makes 1,200 trees to the acre.
ine young tree, are from fifteen to
eighteen inches in height, and are ob
tained from Mr. Douglas's nursery at
wauceegan, near untcago, wbich is one
of tbe largest in the United States. The
white pine, which nave been, set out on
the slopes where the Umber has been
cut down, take one year to root them
selves Jhrmly in the sou. The second
year they grow about one foot higher,
and every succeeding year thev receive
an additional npward growth of three
feet or more. In three years from the
time of planting they will be at least
six feet in height, and In this climate
will attain a max imam height of ISO
feet, The idea in planting them so
closely together is to make them grow
very tall and prevent them from putting:
forth branches near the ground. One
thousand acres are yet to be planted,

sion is ready for occupation the whole
mountain aide will be covered with

To the Public
At the last session of the North Caro
lina Christian Missionary Convention,
one E. H. Olney presented himself for
examination and ordination to the Min
istry. The committee appointed by the
convention for that purpose examined
him, and not being satisfied' with his
qualifications, recommended that ordi
nation be deferred until next conven
tion, and that be remain with his con
gregation doing good in the way of
preaching and in other waya as oppor
tunity afforded, giving him no author
ity whatever more than any private
member of the ehurch. Therefore, be
it known to all, that E. H. Olney is not
endorsed by the Disciples in North
Carolina as a preacher, and that they
will not be held responsible for anything
he may say or do.
