MELVIN, STEELE . JOHNSON. EDITORS AND P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 5. THE ISSUES ARE CUT OUT. The issues for the congressional campaign this year, and for the presidential campaign in 1900, for t h a t matter, have been already cut out and clearly defined. They :ire neither numerous iior now. The tat iff and tbe currency w i l l be in the iorefrout of the fight, as they were in 1896, but unlike the battle of t h a t year the saving clause in the Republican platform--to give bimetallism a show, i£ international agreement to that effect could be made--which held thousands to its support then, w i l l be eNpmiged and the parly will staud committed to a monetary policy which has made the government a v i c t i m of the organized greed of the ntonied plutocracy of the country, and permits a renewal of the ineluctable raids on the gold reserve at the will of the capitalists; a policy ·Rhichhasdriven prices of products of farm, forest and mill down to the lowest notch; a policy which would lessen the circulating medium at least one-fifth per capita, by disuse of part of our present currency and failure to supply its place with gold, because the gold cannot be had to keep the coinage up to its relative position with the growth of population. The Democratic financial poliry, or the otherhand,will be of the broadest pattern. It will provide for au expansion of the currency proportionate with the'growthof our population, and within the bounds prescribed by an honest regard for t h e interests of all classes; a policy the effects of winch will be the same as those described by H u m e in writing of the discovery of gold and silver mines in this country, to wit: "It is certain that since the discovery of the mines in America, i n d u s t r y has increased in all the nations of Europe, and this may be justly as cribed, among other reasons, to t h e increase in gold and silver. Accordingly we find t h a t in every kingdom in which monej begins to flow in greater abundance than formerly, everything-takes a new face; labor and industry gain life, the merchant becomes more enterprising,the manufacturer more diligent and skilful, and eve.n the farmer follows his plow with greater alacrity and attention." This policy would be going back to Iho usages of this country in its prosperous times--back to the point at which the laws on the statute books were diverged from their plain letter and intent to make silver and gold alike redemption money, in the - effort to create a money famine to enrich the hoarders of gold. ' Tb'e Republicans will stand ly their policy of protection, exemplified in the present extreme measure, with all its prohibitory features; its lock-outs, shut-downs and wage reductions in our factories; its retaliatory effects in foreign countries, as have recently been shown by pro- 'hibitory measures against our goods by Qermany and Prussia, which aro but the beginningo.f these measures, and the logical result of ultra protection. . A u d i t bids fair to c o n t i n u e to close more and more foreign ports to our manufactured goods and more and more of our fuctories at home. The Democrats will renew t h e b a l - tle for freer trade, waged so success-. fully in 1892, but with the light of comparison turned on to their advantage. The manufacturers have already begun te realize t h a t the broader scope of the Wilson law was more advantageous to tliem than is the prelection afforded them by the Dingley law. Under the generous influence of the former the expoit .of manufactured goods was increas ed nearly seventy million dollars in two years,and no avoidable burden o? taxation was imposed on the whole people,for the benefit of classes of individuals. It demanded a little less than the actual needs of the government. Between the two parties, on the platforms above given, will the voters choose this fall and in 1900. It is essential that they be welt informed on both the subjects in order to choose intelligently. We believe the prosperity of the country, and the people as a whole, lies in the Democratic slogans--freer trade and increased per capita in circulating medium--and to that belief we shall endeavor to convert the men wbo have hitherto followed, to their financial detriment, the standards of protection and monometal- lism. There should be persistent and organized effort by Democrats to promulgate their articles of f a i t h . Tbe campaign of education canuot ' be too soon begun, nor too vigorously waged. war of 1812-15, after e i g h t y - t w o yeais fiom its end. Thoic are 18,9!M pensioners due to the Mexican war, which ended fifty years ago, a number closely a p p r o x i m a t i n g tho strength of General Scotl's a r m y of invasion, by which the peace was conquered. Reasoning by analogy and a c o m - parison of tho numbers engaged in these early wars w i t h the millions employed in the w a r o t ' t i t e rebellion tho pension roll (if w e should have uu f i g h t i n g to do in tho f u t u r e ) will be no small item in the budget for the jear 1970, and a conservative estimate of the aggregate sum which will have to be paid in the next fifty years will not be less than a average of a hundred millions a year, making $3,000,000,000. To this add already actually paid since I860 $2,173,755,000, giving a total of $7,178,735,000,--over seven billions of dollars.! What a handicap upon the coiin- t i y and upon a generous and long- suffipring people! The voters should choose Congressmen who are willing to aid m throwing off tho b u r d e n . Congressional candidates not favorable to a revision of pension rolls should be promptly shelved by both parties. EDITORIAL NOTES. The Republican press is variously stating the treasury surplus for the month of January at from one to Ihree millions, and without exception I his claimed surplus is attributed to tlic receipts under the Dingley law. The fact is, however, that the deficit for the month, taking, the customs and internal revenue receipts only into account, is very close to eight million dollars. The receipts were $14,269,402 from customs, $12,443,199 from internal revenue, and $2,082,535 from other sources, making- the total revenues $28,695,226 and tho expenditures were $3(5,896,711. There was paid into the treasury' last month on account of the Uuion PaciBc Railroad sale $8,538,401, which makes the total receipts for the month $636,917.33 more than the expenses. For the seven months of t h i s fiscal year the treasuiy deficit, leaving the Union Pacific sale out of the account, is $51,901,823. O w i n g to the $52,998,855 received from that sale there is a. surplus of $1,097,032. As a deficit-maker the Dingley law is holding its ground nobly. And it is oaly just beginning its work of exclusiveness that shuts the factory doors by shutting foreign ports to pur goods. For a dozen years or more Senator Gorman's name has been frequently used in connection with the Piesident'ial nomination. During I he last few weeks no name has been so often mentioned as has that of ·I he distinguished Maryland Senator. Ir is said that the most influential Southern, Northern and Eastern leaders are for Maryland's candidate. A Washington correspondent says : "The first consideration in defeating Mr. Bryan will be to secure the support of the Southern delegates, and Gorman is the only man u h o stands any show of holding the Southern support against Bryan. The Southern statesmen realize that the time lias not arrived in the evolution of politics when a distinctly Southern man can be nominated and elected. Senator Gorman, while not a Southern man in sympathy during the war, has endeared himself to the Southern heart by his masterly tactics in opposing the Lodge force bill. A large share of the responsibility t'or the defeat of that measure is credited to him. By personal and political ties the Maryland Senator stands very close to the Southern loaders. 1 ' . . . PENSION EXTRAVAGANCE. Pension agents are on the Peninsula, looking after some of the cases where those whose names are on the roll should be stricken off. The agitation going on now against the pension swindles should stir up the goverment officials to a sense of their duty. How long will the people, those who pay the taxes, have to wait for a Congress with the courage of its convictions on the question ,of pension frauds? The recent report of the pension commissioner shows we are paying a 'few pensions to widows and daughters of -soldiers in the revolutionary war -- one hundred and fifteen years after peace was made with Great Britian. It also shows that -there art now 5,183 penuoneri from the "I happpn," says Senator Hanua, ·'to occupy tlie exalted position, given to me by the Republican party of the United States, as chairman ot the national committee of that paity, and in that official capacity I now utter the proclamation that no traitors are wanted in our camp." This means that Kurtz, the Ohio member of the Republican National Committed; Bushnell, the Republican Governor of the State, and many others who fought Mr. Hanna, will be visited with the great chairman's sore displeasure. In other words, the fur will fly ! At the annual meeting of the Woman's Suffrage Association of Maryland, held in Baltimore on Monday, it was decided to send a request to the Legislature that the word "main'' be st link en from the election laws of Maryland. A committee of three, Dr. Anna Kuhn, Mrs. Pauline Holme and Mrs. Sarah T. Miller, were appointed to go to Annapolis with the documen't. The members of the Legislature will find that life is real and earnest after this committee's advent at the State capital. The Teller resolution, lo make the government bonds, etc., payable iu silverdollars, which recently passed the Senate by a good majority, was on Monday of this week completely snowed under iu the House of Representatives. The vote was strictly on party lines--130 Democrats and 2 Republicans voted for the measure and ISO Republicans and 2 Democrats voted against it. Each party is pleased that the issue was squarely made by the silverites and met by goldites. The congressional campaign this fall will bo ntado along these lines, and if precedent u o n u t s for a n y t h i n g there will be a majority for the white metal in the next Congress. The great merchant, John Wanamaker, has agreed to make the fight as an anti-Quay candidate, for the governorship nomination iu Pennsylvania. There will be a pretty battle between the two factions of the Republican party, when Quay and Wanamaker meet with blood in their eyes. As there are old scores to settle, it will be war to the knife and to the hilt of the knife. An es-slave and a former owner of slaves have studied the condition of the striking mill operatives at New Bedford, Mass. They have written up their impressions for a New York paper, and both agree that the mill-workers are in worse circumstances t h a n weie the slaves in the South before the war. And yet the New England piess. which usually thinks thnt all humanity's hopes depend on their utterances, hasn't been spitting any fire at the owners of the big mills. A new system of studying a foreign language has been introduced by a Parisian teacher. Two thousand pupils of French schools have entered into a regular correspondence with the same number of English pupils, each side writing a weekly letter iu the language of the other, but submitting it to the teacher before it is mailed. As a rule boys are paired for tho lessons. A novel feature of the Omaha Exposition is to be a "Btneau of Courtesy." The special work of the members is to furnish information to visitors and, in the event o E . t h o inability of tho member accosted to answer the inquiry, to conduct the inquirer from place to place u n t i l the desired information is obtained. Tho Wilmington Every Evening of Thursday last contained a handsomely-printed supplement desetib- ing most of the great industiies of Wilmington, whioh busy .little city is making an earnest effort to gather aud. hold a good part of the Peninsula trade. THE PUBLIC ROADS. Tue great event of 1898 will be the Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition at Omaha, Nebraska, to be opened next June. As this display will be the first exhibition of the fertile western country, it is thought it will be made a wonderful success by the enterprise of the energetic men of tbe weitern Bide of our continent. To the Editors of the JOURNAL : At this moment, in the year 1898, the one fact about our roads which causes the student, of the entire subject the most wonder, in vieef of the progress made in other directions, is the obsolete method, or lack of method, by -which the common county roads of our State are repaired. Each of our counties has a different system, which is more or less of an adoption of the system used in England prior to 1862, before which time the common roads of that country wore in as horrible condition as they now~are in out- State. This method of ordering out the neighboring inhabitants once or twice a, year to work out their road taxes by holding a gigantic picnic in the grateful shade of a grove of trees, swapping yarns is a a farce and satisfactory to no ono but the county politicians and satisfactory only to them when they do not have to use the roads repaired under their supervision. As a point of comparison, look at the difference in the method used by the railroads in keeping up the condition of their roadway. They are constantly and continuously at work upon its irn- pro»-«ment. Why does the B. 0. R. R. spend thousands, hundreds of thousands of dollars iu straightening curves, in lowering grades; does the company do it in order to give their employees a picnic, do they sit on a fence and swap yarns? The railroad authorities find that they save a half cent a mile in fuel, but that one engine can pull five or six more cars. One half a. cent, or one train is not so much,but multiply by tbe number of trains a year and the result is a saving that enables them to reduce the freight rates. Apply a constant system of repairs to out- roads and the results will be the same--larger and heavier loads pulled by the same number of horses (a direct saving to the tax-payer) and a reduced tax rate (a saving to the county.) A road supervisor in Vermont was so impressed with this waste aud neglect and the poor results attained that he abandoned it entirely and this is what lie says: '-The main road through the town, six miles long, not only takes the travel from the other roads but is the thoroughfare for the inhabitants of other towns by which they reach the city and is subject to a great deal of heavy trucking. I conceived the idea of employing one man with a horse, tbe town furnishing the cart to keep this road. He is employed from spring till fall aud he was to begin at one end and work one mile each day, covering tho entiro route in each week, Using the u u i a t mud holes at firsl. I w i l l say here that the maintenance of this road was and had been a great expense to the town and its condition was highly unsatisfactory. When tbe man employed learned what was expected of him, he shrank from the task, saying. "What can I do when a large gang of men with great expense failed to keep it?" He was only persuaded to accept upon the assurance that the responsibility was resting with me. There was much ridicule and prejudice against this system for a time. Tbe man em- 1 ployed was instructed not to discuss tho work nor answer questions relative to tho road. Other people talked and ridiculed b u t the woik went on, the w h o l e road being worked each week, and after a few weeks tho road improved and the people noticed the fact. They also discovered the fact that the expense was not large and so tho work went on aud the prejudice died o u t . The general results are t h a t much better roads are secured at less expense, aud the tax rate for the highways lias been reduced each yeai, as the roads grow better." This is always the result whore the system of cons t a n t repairs is adopted. Tins Vermont supervisot did this work with tho small sum of money he had at command--what do our road supervisors think of the idea? L. A. W. Tour to California.
