Wc publish elsewhere an article
from the Americas Recorder, headed:
“A Plea for the Persecuted.” It is
laudatory of the legislature. The Re
corder pays high and just tribute to
the body. No one will gainsay the
proposition that there arc scores and
scores of good, able aiul conscientious
members who stay in their places and
do their best to expedite public busi
ness. But it is, also, notoriously true
that there arc others who habitually
nbsent themselves from the halls of
legislation, without good cause, and
yet continue to draw their pay. They
not only get pay for services not ren
dered, but their absence obstructs
business. If a member is called away
by urgent business, or from providen
tial causes, lie is perfectly justified in
temporarily absenting himself. It is
those members who take two days in
the week to gad around on free passes,
who arc being lashed by the press.
And the lashing is richly deserved.
The Times Entkrprise has had no
criticism for men who have been
providentially, or by necessary busi
ness, called away, but it has paid its
respects to the other class, and expects
to do sn in the future. And there’s
no “persecution” in it.
There arc members losing money
by staying in Atlanta at $4 per day;
these are trying to get through with
the business. There arc others who
do not, perhaps, make S I per day at
home; these do not care how long the
session lasts. .
Nobody wants the legislature to
rush business unnecessarily. All
want the members to take ample time
to digest every measure, hut they arc
opposed to one or two days being vir
tually thrown awav every week.
Each day’s session costs the tax pay
ers of the State 81,500.
There is no danger of criticisms on
chronic absentees “deterring the best
men from accepting a position which
lays them liable to have their motives
impugned and integrity impeached.”
0,no, the “best men” will stay in their
places and attend to business. No
danger of that class being criticised.
It occurs to ns that if the chronic
absentees could he weeded out and
wc hope they will he in the next ses
sion—good men, and plenty of them,
would readily be found to take their
places. A member who is conscien
tiously trying to discharge his duties,
by staying in his place, unless neces
sarily called away, will not object to
the criticisms of the press in this
matter. If we have, at any time,
fired a shot which hit the “other fel
low,” why we’re glad of it.

—The Burial of Stonewall Jack
Deer I’akk, Mil, Sept. I.—The
President remained indoors about all
day and did not attend church as
usual. It is probable that he will
leave Deer park the middle of this
week, perhaps on Wednesday, and go
to Washington. The President has
been urged to go to the celebration of
hog Cabin college, in Pennsylvania,
the forerunner of Princeton university
and on Thursday he may go there. A
week from to-morrow lie will probably

Lexington, Ya., Sept. 1.—The
funeral services over the remains of
Mrs. Julia Jackson Christiiin too!;
place this morning at the Presbyter
ian church. The services were con
ducted by Rev.' Thomas L. Preston,
D. D., pastor, assisted by Rev. Ebcn-
ezer Junkin, D. C., of Houston, Tex.
The church was jammed, tlm entire
population of the place being out.
She weather was fair and warm. The
body was interred beside her father’s,
Gen. Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson.
The scene at the church and grave
was unusually pathetic. Many of
the battle scarred veterans of the
confederacy, with heads bowed and in
tears, watched the remains laid to rest,
Choice floral offerings came from
many places. The funeral party
from Charlotte, N. C., left here to
night for home.
Niagara Falls, N. W.Sept. 1.—
Last Sunday afternoon Charlisle D.
Graham made a successful trip
through the whirlpool rapids, mael-
etroin and Foster's flats, before an
assembled multitude of 15,000 people.
That was preparatory to his effort to
day to pass over the falls, which, ac
cording to Graham himself and a few
eye-witnesses, was accomplished in
safety. The same barrel was used.
. At 6 o’clock this morning it was
towed out into the river by Andy
Horn and Garrett Stanly, and at
0:45 o’clock it was let go at a point
opposite Chippewa creek. Down the
current it swept, plunging over the
reels, often out of sight, till at 7:80
o'clock it approached the Irrink and
dropped 200 feet into the abyss be
low. The barrel soon arose intact
and was discovered in the eddy. El
mer Jones swam out from the Canadian
shore, caught a rope fastened to the
barrel, and towed it to the shore,
where Graham was lifted out by
Jones and Mr. Cahill. Graham was
quickly brought, more dead than
alive, to Horn's saloon, on this. side.
He says: “The first I knew was when
some one struck the barrel and said:
‘Graham, are you alive?” He com
plained of terrible pains in the hack
and head, from the rocking he had re
ceived, and could talk hut incoherent
ly. About a dozen people verify the
statement that Graham was in tiie
barrel, and many more will say that
they saw the barrel go over. Graham
was probably led to his exploit hv the
appearance here of Kteve llrodie, with
the avowed intention of jumping the
The month with ail R. is here.
And the juicy bivalve will now come

What “Thomasville” Has to Say About
the Park Question.
I liave read with interest and pleas
ure, the communications of “l’ark” on
the Park. He is one of those high-
toned and intellectually honest men,
who always manage to get on the
right side of all public questions.
But Park is a better reasoner than
figurer. He says the Park will cost
only 021 cents taxes on each thousand
dollars, for thirty years. In this he is
plainly at error. His calculation is
made 011 the basis of only 82,000,000
of taxable property. But the taxable
property of Thomasville is rapidly in
creasing each year, and as it increases
the 021 cents must decrease. When
the taxable property shall have
doubled, which will occur long before
the thirty years shall have expired,
the 021 cents will become 01 j cents,
value of property adjacent, will great
ly help in paying for itself.
But this is not all. “Park” correct
ly states that the sinking fund of 8500
per year < an lie safely invested at 5
per cent. This interest will give 825
the second year, and each year there
after, which, together with the 825.00
annual interest 011 each subsequent
8500.00, will reduce tfle 8750.00 total
interest at the rate of 825.00 per an
num. Now it is plain that as the
*750.00 of interest decreases annually,
the rate of taxation will decrease, bc-
eau-c less money will have to he
raised. This decrease will begin tho
Adding these two causes of decrease
together, 1 think it is a conservative
statement, to say that the G24 cent
rate will sink to 25 cents in ten years.
Verily, the cost of the park is a very
small matter It is as though a father
objected -to buying a book for his
child, with pictures in it, because,
forsooth, the illustrations cost a trifle
more. Above all tilings, let us be
honest about this matter, bet us look
well into our motives, and see that
tliev are such that the world might

In retiring from the firm of Fife k hcverly,
I do so with reluctance, ns my connection
with this business ami my partner, for the

Every third person you meet is
troubled more or less with biliousness,
and don’t know how to get rid of it.
The causes are easily recorded. A lack
of sufficient exercise, eating too much
by persons of sedentary habits, indulge
ence in too rich food, a sluggish torpid
liver where the blood does not do its
duty, and bile is allowed to. accumu
late; these cause the whites of the eye
to-turn yellow, the skin to look thick
and coarse, and the complexion yellow
or dark. These arc sure indications
of biliousness. Brown’s Iron Bitters
is the remedy you want. It acts di
rectly upon the blood, cleanses and
purifies it, and sends it on its journey
through the channels of the liver, giv
ing to it activity and clearing out the
bile. It will remove the yellow tinge
from the eyes and the complexion,
leaving the latter fresh and clear.
