equivalent to an effort to keep down the

I puts mo*t of the burden on those least

pervades the country and the lack of
prosperity that afflict* the largest class

this discrimination in taxation. Tbe
lawmakers will be doing quite euough,
d all that is needed, if they establish a
system under which every dollar of
wealth in the country will contribute its
proportionate share to the government.
We have no objection to an income tax
as a part of that system, if found neces
sary and advisable, but we have a pro
found distrust of all systems of taxation
which discriminate in favor of one citi
zen ami against another.

A YEAR’S SUBSCRIPTION
TO THE HERALD
Several of the Herald's exchanges
aud many of its readers, have the
prewiion that I control its political pol
icy. To set at rest this erroneous im
pression, I will say that I aiu not respon
sible for the editorial utterances of the
Herald. Mrs. K. L. Reed is manag
ing editor, and controls its policy, within
the lines of a contract made with the
Herald Publishing Co., which requires
that the pa|H*r shall be Democratic. It
is known that 1 am indepeudant in pol
itics, ami declined to subject myself to
the test oath demanded at the recent
Democratic primaries. Further tliau
this it is of little consequence to the
readers of this paper what my political
predilections may be. My connection
with the Herald as stockholder, direc
tor and leasee, is to further the interests
of Way cross and the surrounding coun
try by giving the people a good weekly
uewspaper. While politically I shall
probably not be in accord with the
Hkkali>, I shall be always ready to
further its efforts towards the material
development of this splendid section.

Like a Romance.
The progress of the south since Apjio-
mattox has no parallel outside of romance.
In 1865 we had no mouey, no credit,
no hojM*. Many of our cities <
ashes, our plantation* were wrecl
our railways were worn out.
To-day we have a land of |K*ace and
plenty, 43,000 miles of railway,

New England or the central west.
We are drawing capital and
Ten years ago we had 220 n
banks; now we have 590.
The |»ercentage of the increase
reign exjiorts is al*out five times the
>mbined gain at the other parts of the
A few days ago we showed by reliable
tistics that we have fewer failures with
smaller liabilities in the south than in
other sections. We showed, too, that
in development and production our pro
gress had lH*en phenomenal, and that the
growth of our diversified uianfactures
made a total during the past five years of
over 17,*HH» new industries.
"Now, take this fact—since 1888 our
assessed property has increased $1,000,-
000,0lW in value, according to the reports
for 1890 !
When a section can accompli
much in twenty-seven years—starting
with only battlefields and ruius for as

It is bright, and growing brighter,
we make the fight on the right line we
smash the republican party this year, and
even if we fail, it will take a bigger
than Benjamin Harrison to block oi
ward march. Ix>ok at it as you will, the
rising south is now in a positiou to hold
her own, and seize her share of fortune'
The movement now on foot,
bert A. Pope, of Bo«tou, Mass., “to make
a comprehensive exhibit of ini|i
roads and road-making machinery
World’s Columbian Exposition,’
cry laudable enterprise.
“An exhibition of this kind would
benefit this country incalculably, and its
effect would last as long as roads are
used. It would give a great impetus to
the movement now being made, to have I
interstate roads provided aud main
tained by national legislation.’’
Mr. Pope’s idea is as follow*: To
construct some of tbe mads adjacent to
the Exposition groumL* in accordance
with the most approved system used in
Europe ami this country. Cross sections
of these roads should be shown in some
suitable place, together with the best
machinery for preparing the material,
making, and taking care of roads. Stone
crushers, steam rollers, street sweeping,
watering carts, etc., should be included
in this exhibit. To meet the expenses
of such an exhibit, and to provide the
necessary building and to attend to all
tbe details so as to bring it to a success
ful issue, it would lie advisable to form
an association and invite all }K*rsons in
terested in good roads to join and to

Nobody disputes that wealth should
bear its full share of the burdens of gov
ernment. It does not do so now, be
cause the statute books are lull of unjust
and defective laws. Some of these laws
are the result of the financial distress of
the government during the war. Con
gress was obliged t j offer inducements
for loam*. and one of the inducements
w-as the exemption from taxation of gov
ernment bonds. For many years, there
fore, the immense volume of private
wealth represented by the public debt
baa contributed nothing to the support
of the national, state or municipal gov
ernment*. Unless the taxpayers
ftilly compensated by the lower rai
interests at which ihe government
issue its bonds, this escape from taxa
tion of so large a body of wealth
great misfortune to them. That they
are com|>enaated to a large degree seems
certain. Bouds bearing only 3 per cent
interest and subject to national, state,
county and municipal taxation would
not be a desirable investment In
cities they could be held only at a loss.
The tax rate in Chicago, for instance
we believe, more than 4 per cent
But in various other ways it ia notori
ous that much of the wealth of the
country escapes taxation, in this way
laying an unequal burden on that por
tion which the tax collector ia able to
reach. We think it is true that the half
of the national wealth held by the poor
er of property-holder* pays a larger pro
portion of the Uxea than the half held
by the richer. This is wrong, but we
believe the idea that the conditions
should be reversed is a mistaken

Macon, Ga., June.—The celebration
of July 4th, promises to 1** great. It
will take plaee at the Central City Park,
and the attractions are sufficiently nu
merous to extend throughout the entire
day. There will be boat, hurdle and
running races; also contest* of every
conceivable kind; a wrestling match,
fantastic parade, chicken-picken contest,
baby show, wheel-burrow race, balloon
ascension, baseball game and many
other amusements. A cash prize is of
fered to the winner in each contest. The
declaration of independence will also be
read, and there will be daylight fire
works. Both literally ami figuratively,

fee of twenty-five cents will be charged
and the entire proceeds will go to the
public library. Excursion trains will

This season Macon is in the baseball
league, but for some unaccountable
reason the Macon team generally get*
beat. Still, the games are very exciting,
and a* a summer recreation, baseball
has been a decided success. Every af
ternoon crowds of people can be seen
going down to the park to witness the
games. The ladies too, appear to be
cultivating a taste for this national
game, and in their light summer cos
tumes form quite an attractive feature;
they make the grand stand bright with
the fluttering of their fluffy parasols,
ribbons and gay fans. The w hole of the
long afternoon* spent in the open air l*
no inconsiderable gain in the way of re
taining health and good looks, and al
though they never understand the sci
ence of baseball, they are not losers
thereby. Memphis ami Macon played a
close game on the 17th. Memphis

On June 24th, tbe public schools
closed ; nearly three thousand children
and fifty teachers have ended their year’s
work, and will now devote themselves to
the pleasures of vacation. The gaduat-
ing exercises of the High school took
place in the Academy of Music. In the
primary grades, there were no closing
exercises, bat three days of the last week
were set apart as patron’s day when par
ents and visitors were expected.

A gentleman of many years experi
ence in the commercial world, remarked
to a Herald reporter yesterday that a
better day was coming. Said he: “The
people, many of them, have l*eeu crying
hard times and doing their best to fight
it off, but a brighter day is surely dawn
ing ; in fact it is near us—at our very
doors. We have so much for which to
be thankful, so many blessings to glad
den our hearts and cause us to rejoice.
The drouth is ended and the prospect
for an abumlant yield for the fanner is
bright. We have suffered less from the
money panic than any other section, and
while the great West ha* been visited by
cyclones and floods, Georgia has escaped
all manner of pestilence aud disaster.
