There are towns in North Car ol i na and Vi rn n ia t h at have been actually killed by the character istic meanuess of soirie lead inn citizens. .One or tv 6 ol d " f or i es who hold property . can do the Work. Natural advantages amount to nothing when the bid schemers ai.d haters of progress hold the rein?.- The work U generally done slowly, but it is Y done very effectually, indeed. ,W e have i n mi n oVa town not 200 miles away that has been killed by such a course and so effectually killed that " not even the most progressive citizen therein can ever hope for a revi val. This town, proud of her aristocratic standing, spurned all enterprises of a manufacturing nature. A tobacco factory was established, but such an industry was not looked upon with favor by the ; ease-loving city fathers. The live proprietor of the factory H was in the habit of rising early, and a long, shrill whistle" from his engine caZled the factory bands to work at an early hour. This whistle, blown at 7 o'clock in the morning, disturbed the early slumber of the easy old citizen?, and they kicked. An ordinance was passed, prohibiting Mr. from blowing his whistle earlier than 9 o'clock. What was the result? The factory shut its doors. the story went out, and enterprise ana capital iiat would have gone there and built up the the town passed by and stopped where there was a warmer welcome. - This is but one sample, but it is enough to tell the- tale. ' We know ot another place where the fastidious' city rulers have prohib ited the railroad engines from blowing within" the" corporation, and where brass bauds - are not allowed to play on the streets without permission from the mayor, These - are step 3 that niove toward municipal" suicide. They kill slowly, but surely. - This is an age of activity, whn fogy ism must step aside and jet enterprise have the floor. There is no room for, the old ideas of ease and repose; no matter - bow welcome they were to our fathers and grandfathers. - Capital stops where it is wanted and eagerly sought, and not- where a town doubts whether or not it wantsit. The town that would grow must love the whi3tld' of the factories above a2 other music. It must b-j willing to be waked by such music at 6 o'clock in the morn ing and must get jup bv that ma sic and go to work. Southern Tobacco Journal.

" ;' THE TOBACCO TAX. ifnmift -VfrgmiaDemocrats. are very anxious to have the tobacco tax removed as one mears of re du ci tig' the sirrplus..; They argue, and with a sophistry that would do credit to the original Sophist himselt, that the farmers demand this in order that they may be re lieved from the grip of the tobao co monopolists of Richmond, who are only five in number. These, it is claimed, by reason of thir wealth; are able to pay the tax, whereas the small dealers cannot, therefore the farmers .must sell to them. I This is absurd upon- its face. A, dealer in tobacco is not called upon to pay anyrabre tax than his dealings amount to, and up to that point many" of them can be fair competitors ot the monopolists. But that aside,, the tobacco growers can, at any time, redre83 their grievances of mo nopoly by clubbiug together and sending their tobacco to the small traders, who can easily find bank accommodations equal to thc amount of their purchases. But this story is not-true. Tobacco, like everything else, is worth just what it will bring, tax or no tax. This can be ascertained by the relative value ot raw and manu... fact u red tobacco. This story of .the monopolists is all subtcrtnge and nonsense. The lobacco eriw- er is not affected, by the tax, ami it should not be repealed. It it is. it will be a confession of .weak ness that will work to to the in jury, perhaps the detent of the Democratic7 party in 1888. It will be a case of the tail wagging the dog Randall and his Tittle hand full of followers lesrislatinerfor the vvuuio xtiiuocrauc party, witn tne rallying cry of: "The poor man's necessities first," should enter upon the next campaign. Under the banner of a "tree i breakfast table?' there is certainty of victory for the Democrats. The repeal of tne internal revenue work its defeat.

Moore, published on our fifth page, as to the rates ot duty collected during the fiscal year eliding with 1886 on various articles of prime neces sity to the people of the United States. ' The articles he has enu merated all pay a duty of 50 per cent, or over. The duty on many of them, levied under the pre tense of compensating 'American manufactures for 'the - difference between the wages paid bv them and the lower wages paid by for eign ; mauutactuiers, are much greater than the entire cost ot Ja- U .. iL.

Some very shocking murders that have occurred latterly testify only too fully of the great preva lence of crime. It is rife in c very J . .of section. Within a year some the most awful murders have been committed in tho South, and JSorth Carolina has not beeD without its share. Georgia, too, has greatly suffered. A vhoIo family was recently . murdered. The most disgraceful and alarm, ink thing counected with the foulest crimed is that' the guilty devils are hot captured and exe cuted. Tho mosrtiaridUh crime ever perpetrated in North Caro ina is 6tilJ uncxpiatcd aud thet murderer is safely concealed in 11 probability." Lynch law may ct be needed if thole charged with its execution are not more aithftil and prompt. j Ms a sorry commentary npon he conclusion of iudicial trials of criminate to have the Solicitors.!

Tho Governor of North Carolina is, daily beset with petitions from every section of the btate lmnlorinir iixecutive clemency in behalf of red handed murderers, burglars, and scoun drels ot every hue. Ho often yields to the pressure, but some times refuses as wo are delighted to know. . The pardoning of criminals is to foster crime. One rascai'H go ing unwhinped of iuslico is to in vito others to take the chances 01 the law's delay and inefficiency.
