The Demands of the Magistrates.
The bill now pending in the Legislature
for the benefit of the Justices of the Peace
for this county is a very objectionable one.
If the tax-pavers of the county don't want
to have their already heavy tax bunion very
considerably increased they will send such
a protest to their Representatives in the Leg
islature against it that it will never
be lieard of outside of the room of the com
mittee whieh has eharge of it.
The bill repeals the law governing the
fees of Justices of the Peace in this county,
and provides that they shall receive $7 in
all felony cases and #4 in all misdemeanor
cases sent by them to the Superior or City
Court. Besides these fees the bill provides
for a fee of 53 for writing, or witnessing
and approving, a bond when an accused
party is required to appear for a prelimi
nary examination, or is bound over to au
swpr the demands of a higher court.
If this bill should liecome a law the
chances are that the Justices of the Peace
would do a rushing business, and the county
would have its treasury relieved of cash at
an alarming rate. It is doubtful if the new
jail would be big enough to hold all those
who would be sent to it unless the magis
trates should accept “straw” bonds, which
they would hardly do, in view of the fact
that the payment of their fees would de;**nd
upon the appearance of the accused parties
at the higher courts to await the action of
the grand jury in their cases.
It is not stated whether or not the county
is to pay the $3 bond fee, but the presump
tion is that such is the intention of the bill.
About every arrest would eost the county
either #7 or 510, to sav nothing of the expense
of supporting in jail the prisoners unable
to furnish hail. Indeed the amount of the
magistrate’s fees in some eases would, in
all probability, lie greater than the sums
stated, because the chances are that then*
would he fees for two bonds instead of one
—a bond for appearance liefom the magis
trate, ami another for appearance before
the higher court.
The bill has splendid possibilities for the
magistrate. If they failed to make hand
some incomes out of the c* unity it would be
because they did not know how to make the
rmwt of their opportunities. It is not pmha
ble, however, that thy would tniss a chance
to make a fee.
But besides the burden which the bill
would impose upon the county there are
other objections to it. If it were to beeome
a law the magistrates, anxious to make as
much as possible, would Lake notion of every
little offense that could in any way be mag
nified into a misdemeanor. They might
even search out offenses that would
not otherwise claim their attention,
an*l, as they would not get any fees if they
discharged the accused parties, they would
be strongly influenced to hold th *in for trial
in the higher courts even when the evidence
did not justify them in doing so. This may
seem to be an unfair reflection upon the
Justices of the Peace, but it must bo re
membered that changes are all the time
being made in the otflies of the magistrates,
and that th** men who sometimes succeed in
getting into them are not entirely
conscientious in the discharge of their duties.
Some years ago there was a law whose pro
visions were similar to those of the pending
bill. The very evils which are apprehended
from this bill existed tinder that law. They
became so great that the law, in response to
a strong popular demand, was repealed.
Will the Representatives from this county,
with the remerabran**** of the trouble which
that law caused, and of the burdens which
it implied up in the taxpayers fresh in their
minds, permit a similar law to be enacted?
If they do, they will not prove themselves
worthy of the trust reposed in them by
The State should pay Justices of the
Peace a reasonable compensation for their
services in criminal cases, ami this compen
sation should be promptly paid. If, how
ever, it becomes necessary, for the proper
administration of juati**e, that the <*ounty
shall hear the cost of making preliminary
examinations of charges of violations of the
laws, it would be better to deprive Justices
of the Peace of all criminal Jurisdiction, and
to create a court having exclusive authority
to make such examinations.
The cost of maintaining a court of this
character would be much lens than the
amount of the fees which the Justices of the
Peace are seeking. In fact, anything
would be better for the county and the
public than a law such as the Justices of the
Peace want enacted.
The Terrapin Bill.
The bill for the protection of terrapins,
which was introduced into the House by
Representative Smith, and which passed the
House with scarcely any opposition, was
framed by Dr. Oemler, of. Wilmington
Island. There is no reason to doubt that it
will lie passed by the Senate. The bill pro
vides that-terrapins shall not be caught
before July 35, but Dr. Oemler thinks that
tbe prohibition should be extended to Aug.
3t). In support of his position he says his
attention was lately called to a statement
respecting some terrapins which were
picked up on St. Simon’s Island after July
35. They contained both mature and im
But the pending bill will be a great pro
tection to terrapins, and if it becomes a law
and is rigidly enforced, there is every rea
son to believe they will become plentiful
again in the waters of this part of the
Few realize who have not given attention
to the matter how destructive to terrapins
the prat-til's of catching them at all seasons
is. A statement was lately made to Dr. Oem
ler that as many as 1,000 eggs had been
taken out of a terrapin pen in this vicinity
in a single morning, and that one dealer
has now in his pen 10.000 small,
comparatively wm-thless female terrapins,
nnd they will lie kept there until about Nov.
1. The pending hill will do a great deal of
good if it becomes a Law. but Dr. Oemler
expresses the opinion that it would do much
more good if it prohibited the taking of ter
rapins before Aug. 30.
The outrageous conduct of Dukes, the ne
gro editor of Montgomery, Ala., has not
only made it necessary for him to iiee the
wrath of the jieople of that city, but it has
caused pronounced opposition to the pro
posed State University for negroes.
At a largely attended meeting,
tbe other day, resolutions were adopted by
the white citizen* of Montgqpiery protest
ing against the location of the University
within either tbe city or county.
The Houston, Tex., Font says: “Talk
like that indulged in by Mi-mr*. Felton and
Simmons, in the Georgia Legislature, would
call for a funeral or two in Texas.” In
Georgia the talk was thought bait enough
even with a )>eaceable ending. A funeral or
two could uot possibly have caused the dis
grace of it to be greater.
THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1887.
The Fanners’ Convention.
The Interstate Fanners’ Convention at
Atlanta is not only well attended, but it is
discussing subjects that are of very great
interest to Southern fanners. It can hardly
fail to be productive of beneficial results.
The proceedings are quite fully rep *rted and
are given wide circulation by the press. It
will be strange, indeed, if some of the many
valuable suggestions which crop out in the
speeches and essays are not ntilize*L
The agricultural interest is the great one
in the South, ami yet in the last quarter of
a century it has shown lees development
than any other. The reason of this is.
doubtless, the difficulty in breaking away
from the old methods of farming, which
were based upon a different kind of labor
than that which exists at present. There
are. however, gratifying evidences of
changes, and where these changes are
the most marked there the indications of
prosperity are the greatest. One of the es
says read before the convention dealt with
diversified farming, and it is safe to say
that the Southern farmers are now raising
their own supplies to a greater
extent than ever before. The all-cotton
method, under the growing belief that de
pendence upm the West for food supplies
means a constant struggle with poverty, is
gradually giving way to the diversified
meth*i. The time may not !>* very distant
when th * South will be independent of the
West. Even now it is not uncommon to
hear of farmers making g*xxl crops of hay
in localities where a comparatively few
vears ago no hav whatever was produced.
Senator Colquitt, in his speech on Wednes
day, sjxikea few wise words about the tariff.
He made it plain that it was to the interest
of the farmers that the tariff should be re
duced. The government does not need all
the money which the tariff produces. The
present high tariff increases the cost of the
necessaries 'if life, and of much of the ma
chinery, ami many of the implements needed
upon the farms, thus impising unnecessary
burdens upon the farmers.
Mr. Henderson, the Commissioner of
Agriculture of this State, with whom the
idea of this interstate convention ortei
tinted, doubtless feds great satisfaction in trip
success of the convention, and in the pros
pect that much good will flow from it.
The Pevce Union and the Military.
The Philadelphia Pres* publishes a syn
opsis of a communication from the Philadel
phia Peac* Union to the Constitutional
Commission, objecting to preference being
given military organizations in the grand
demonstration in i-onjunction with the Con
stitutional Centennial celebration, in the
communication, says the IVras, President
Alfred 11. Love and others of the Union ask
whether great injustice is not done the in
dustries of the country in placing a limit to
them and giving an unlimited opportunity
for the exhibition of military and war
like preparations They claim that “this
bringing together of fighting men—warriors
decked in the gaudy habiliments of their
profession, with deadly weapons hung about
them —is not in harmony with the spirit and
purposes of the Constitution nor of the dis
tinguished and beloved framers of that in
strument of unity and concord.’’ It is sug
gested by the Union that instead of allow
ing the celebration to tie a mere display of
military and other power, that it be made
an occasion of some achievement of lasting
benefit to the world. With the view of
aiding the Commission the Union
suggests a demonstration in favor
of national and international arbitration,
the donation of the money to be spent on the
military display to a relief fund providing
against calamities by fire, pestilence,
famine, or any other great public calamity.
President Love and his associates seem to
forget that wnr was the agency by w hich
indejiendenee of England was gained and
the republic founded. If they remember
the fact, their suggestions indicate a great
lack of appreciation of military organiza

The Washington correspondent of the
New Orleans Picat/nne says that notwith
standing the recent reports to the effect, that
Judge Pettus, of Alabama, and not Secre
tary I-amar. is to be appointed the successor
to the late Justice Woods, of the Supreme
Court, friends of Secretary Lamar are still
confident that he will receive the appoint
ment. A gentleman who is vert - close to
the Secretary said recently; “There is no
doubt whatever in my mind about the mat
ter. Secretary launar is going to leave the
Cabinet for the Supreme bench. It is tru\
perhaps, that the President has said noth
ing to the Secretary on the subject, but the
work has been done by the Secretary's
frieiuU, and the best posted men who have
tieen looking into the situation are confident
that this will be the case.
A few days ago the Morning News
noted the fact that railroad builders in
Washington Territory were about to send
South for negro laborers. Commenting,
the Chattanooga TTEmcs says: “Perhaps if
we could manage to get rid of the whole
race—Sambo, Jumbo, (Jtiitnbo, Dinah and
the picaninmes, we could replace them with
something a good deal more satisfactory.
Whut do you say. Mornixo News, to a
trial for a wholesale exodus?” The Mottx
ixo News is not disposed to join in such a
trial. When the negroes learn, as they are
rapidly doing, that the Southern people are
their best friends, it will be difficult to find
a more satisfactory class of laborers than
Mayor O'Brien, of Boston, vigorously
defends his presence at a recent entertain
ment given at the Boston Theatre in honor
of John L. Sullivan. He says that he con
sidered it his duty to see that the city ordi
nanoes were not infringed upon. And then,
again, he claims that a performance officially
sanctioned by the Board of Aldermen is one
which 0111 he properly attended by the
most select citizen in Boston.
Louis Boydcn, who recently died at Wor

The Effect of Protection
From the Galveston Sews (Dem.)
A protection organ. explaining the preaf emi
gration from Germany, attributes it large hr to
the fas? increasing stagnation of trade ana in
dustries throughout the empire." If all that
the pa per claims for the tariff be true, there
should, as the Chicago Times suggests, be no
stagnation of trade and industries in a country

Senator Riddleberger ha* cut so coutemptible
a figure in and out of the State of Virginia that
if the law can be enforced and he can be com
pelled to pa** a number of days in a common
jail, the public credit of the Old Dominion will
bo measurably augmented, and the Senator
himself may receive a lesson that will be of
future service to bim. No man in this country
ought to be allowed to demonstrate that he is
above the law. and that he can with impunity
set legal restraints at defiance.

From the Baltimore American.
Wasbihotos, Aug. 14.—The fair, which is to
be held next mouth in the little villag ? of East
Aurora, N. Y.. is attracting far more attention
in all sections of the country than events of this
kind usually do. The season is obvious. The
President of the Association knows an adver
tisement when he sees it. and he makes the
most of one when he gets it. The slo* gold piece
which President Cleveland contributed as a
prize for the best set of triplets has l**en framed
and is attracting a great deal of attention in
Buffalo, where it is on exhibition in one of the
show windows. The fact that the prize is of
fered by the President has attracted several
mothers who are the happy possessors of “three
of a kind," and the indications now are that the
East Aurora fair of will .draw the biggest
crowd of triplets ever seen in one country be
One of the gentlemen interested in this unique
couptry fair ts in Washington this week. He
says that the color line is not to be drawn, but
that special inducements are to be offered to the
colore*i people of Western New York to exhibit.
Governor Hill has seen Cleveland's ten and goes
him fifteen better The Governor has contribu
ted $23, which is to he given to the be*t pair of
colored twin*sent for exhibition. It is thought
that this is a shrewd move on the part of the
Chief Magistrate of the Empire State to head off
the prestige of the appointment of Mr Trotter
as recorder of deeds of the District of Columbia
by the President. Governor Hill is known to be
very friendly toward the colored population of
New York, and it is doubtless in the hope that
he can win still more supporters among the race
that he offers this prize for colored twins.
This gentleman says that the indications are
now that the East Aurora Fair will draw an im

“DARN A WASP.”
Thus Concludes a Norwich Naturalist
Whom the Insects Worsted.
From the Xorwich Bulletin.
A Norwich naturalist who was out for birds a
day or two ago became imbued with the Napo
leonic idea that he could route a whole colony
of wasps at a blow. He was not long in finding
a stone and putting it through their paper nest;
and the wasps were not long in rinding him
The first tickled him right over the left eye. and
so absorbed his attention that he could not
tell where the rest struck him. His legs and
arms worked like the bars in a threshing ma
chine, and he rolled on the earth like an ant
eater assailed by bees. When he thought he had
rolled three miles, he felt himself drop
several feet, and then ho struck
a stump and stopped. For a mo
ment he couldn't decide what to do He
couldn't tell whether it were better to lie still or
get up. < hie eye was entirely out of use. but he
cautiously uncovered the other eye and viewed
his surroundings. He was pocketed between
an offset wall and a tree, and the wasps had not
been able to follow his trail. He wes not look
ing for them. He felt that home would be more
congenial to him, ami went at once. But he
carried an eye with him that no one looked
upon with envy. The inflamed eyelid protruded
like a gall upon an oak leaf, and had more fire
in it than a toy pistol He hasn't had time to
investigate to s**e what of the wasps.
He hasn't had time, yet, t*> make that eye look
respectable. But he has thought a little upon
the subject of wasps, and says: “Darn a wasp!
See it. but never try to go it one better! For
He Changed His Mind.
From the World's Saratoga Letter.
Mr. Ben Wood fell into the mood reminiscent
last night, as h* sat on the front portico of the
Gran t Union slowly smoking a good night cigar.
I will never forget the first time I saw my
narpt* in print/" h<* said. “I was a lad of 21. and
fairly popular in the where I lived in New
York. A primary was about to be held for the
nomination of a police justice Tae man who
had held the office a long time had earned the
ill-will of a friend of mine, who asked rae to
help him go* enough votes to nominate another
man in the placn of the offending Magistrate.
I did so, and my man received the nomination.
The next morning, as I left the house, I took np
the New York Herald , and in the first editorial
column was a reference to the nesting of
the night befiw**. and a suggestion that
the change of noni nees hud been brought
anout by coercion, in the form of a man
named Wood, who had gone to the primary
leading a gang of ruffians, who forced the re
sult. I grew pale with anger. Riding down
town in the stage, with a mind fully made up to
cowhide Bennett. I thought l was recognized by
every man that looked at me as the leader of a
ruffianly gang. I reached the Herrdd office, in
quired for Mr. Bennett and was noon shown
into the august presence. Producing the paper.
I said, quivering with rage: Did you write
that ' He glano*d at the paragraph, and with
oat vouchsafing a word pulled two or three bell
cords. Three of his aids c*nie in. Then, turn
ing to me, he said in his bnvid Scotch: Ts veur
name Wood? How old are you'’ Twenty-one" eh?
Only ?1? Well, sir. you ought to be the proudest
young man in this big city to-day to have made
yourself the subject of editorial reference in
the New York Herald . I suppose you have
come to thank me.' In five minutes I left the
office, feeling chat I was the biggest boy in
town and Bennett my warmest admirer, The
old fellow was a smart oue."
