I THE DEATH PENALTY.
i Some months ago we presented
some arguments in favor of capital
punishment. We have recently
been reqaea.ted by a valued sub -
acriber to presentsome thoughts on
the other side of the question. This

j These are motives, not reasons.
1 When we appeal to reason, there is
a failnre in sustaining the practice.
Regarding all human endeavor as
fallible, it is not wise to do that
which cannot be undone. True,
when we subject to a loss of
freedom we take part of hts life
which cannot be restored ; but if
this has been doneuDjustly we can

may cause a reasonable doubt of
his guilt and unbar his prison
doors. Bat the execution ends all.
A clear and direct revelation of
innocence may come, but it will
only bring additional sorrow to
bleeding hearts and discredit to tho
administration of justice.
Capital punishment is approved
by many good people because they
believe it is of divi&e appointment
and has the sanction of heaven.
They read in the sacred word of an
eye for an eye, and a tooth for a
tooth, and fail to realise that "in
this they abandon the gospel and
fall back upon the theology of the

influenced by oar common sense
and better feeling to a departure
from the old barbaric treatment of

All laws should have for their

mitted themselves to a revision of
the tariff as fully as the Democrats
did. Can anybody doubt what was
understood by revlsior T It matters
not what party leaders designed,
the people were led to believe that
there would be a redaction, and
when Republican leaders assert
that they have kept their promise
this all. The worst feature of the
bill is its sectionalism. Governor
Vanoe, in his great speech at
Raleigh, brought this out in these
plain aad pointed words : "A few
days ago, in the Senate, the
sectionalism of the Republican
party was aptly illustrated. The
grain 'growers of the West Bpend
10,000,000 a year for binding twine
the tax 0n which is $2,000,000. A
Western Senator moved to put
binding twine on the free list. I
dapped my hands and said
'hurrah !' and I made a speech and
voted to take off the tax and relieve
tho Western farmers. In the South
we make 7,000,000 bales of cotton
every year, and It costs the farmers
3,000,000 per annum for cotton
bagging. I moved to put cotton
bagging on the free list. Every
unhang member ot the Republican
party, except one, opposed it. The
ink wasn't dry on the amendment
to exempt binding twine before
they were guilty of this mean
ness." But sectionalism looms up most
hideously in the lorce bill. True it
has not yet become a law, but it
passed the House and its passage
in the Senate was only defeated by
obstructive tactics on the part of
To every candid mind it mast be
evident that it is the purpose of
the Republican party to prostrate
the South. She is shaking tbe
ashes of desolation from her, and
will soon appear "bright as tbe
sun, clear as the moon and terrible
as an army with banners." This
consummation they wish to pervert,
and will prevent unless the people
rise in their might and burl them

Raleiob, Oot. 1. List July it was I
thought that arrangements for the pur- I

was some hitch. Today the grounds i
known as camp Russell, for years used
as a camp by regular troops, were i
purchased by Mr. W. C. Stronsch, of i

Veteran Association. There are alreaoy
a number of buildings and the work of
preparation begins tomorrow. In a
week several veterans, who are now
being cared for here by the executive
committee, will be quartered in the
home and in a short time twenty-seven
soldiers, now in various poor houses,
will be put under its sheltering care.

But other kinds of factories could be
established with much less capital.
We believe 5,000 would put up a'
splendid knitting factory aud 10,000
would establish a furniture factory
that would add immensely to the pros
perity of the city, and ono point in its

vegetables, and the cost of such a fac- I
tory would be munh less than is gen
erally cupposed ami it would give em
ployment to a larger number of people
in proportion to the money invested
than most industries, besides creating
a new market right at home for the
products of our soil.

Not only the proprietors and employees
but all classes of our citizens, either .
directly or indirectly, will feel the ben- I
eOta flowing therefrom. Such enter
prises not only bring now residents to '
tho town but add mateiiilly to the
finances of those already here. 1 he
man whom they furnish wiih employ-,
