Washington, Dec. 10.—" Economy”
in the public expenditures Is
the Republicai slogan at both ends
of the Capitol, and the friends of river
and harbor improvements, public build
ings, good roads, pure food, and the
cotton claim are alarmed for fear these
measures will be pushed to the rear
and smothered to death at the close of
the session. In the House these meas
ures and similar bills, can only receive
consideration through the courtesy of
the Committee on Rules, which is
dominated by Speaker Cannon. In the
Senate unanimous consent is required
to get any of these propositions before
that body, so there is trouble all along
the line for all legislation during the
present session, which does not pass
muster before the steering committees
of the two Houses.
Disposed to Resent the “Gng" Rule.
Some of the less conspicuous mem
bers of the Republican party in the
House and Senate, who are not allow
ed to have much to do with shaping
party legislation, are disposed to re
sent what they call the “gag” rule of
the steering committees. The point is
made that in spite of the deficit in the
Treasury, this sudden spasm of econo
my did not develop until the Senate
and the House had involved the gov
ernment in an outlay of several million
dollars to provide additional commit
tee rooms for individual senators and
representatives in the immmediate vi
cinity of the Capitol.
Two valuable squares fronting the
Capitol were purchased under condem
nation proceedings during last year,
and the work is being pushed forward
as though the fate of the government
depended upon each congressman being
provided with a private committee
room. Along the same line the proposi
tion is under consideration to increase
the salary of the President, Vice Presi
dent, cabinet and members of Con
gress. In the executive departments
the annual estimates bristle with rec
ommendations for increases in the sal
aries of the high officials, while the
pruning knife is vigorously employed
among the lower salaried employes.
Plenty of Views on Economy.
There are so many conflicting view's
in Congress on the subject of “econo
my” that it is difficult to separate the
economical sheep from the grafting
goats. For instance, here are two bills
recently introduced in the House. One
proposes to grant fifteen days’ leave
of absence, each year, without loss of
pay to rural free delivery letter car
riers. The other bill appropriates $15,-
000 to enable an agent of the Depart
ment of Agriculture to visit Europe
and Asia to study the foreign natural
enemies or means of control of the
gypsy moth and the brown tail moth,
and for the introduction of such of
these as promise to be useful in con
trolling the two irisects named in
America. Now, the chances are that
the leave of absence to the rural deliv
ery letter carriers will be denied on
the ground that the provisions for the
rural delivery service is already exces
sively large. On the other hand, past
experience justifies the presumption
that the “gypsy moth” and the “brown
tail moth” will be provided for in a
snug little corner of the agricultural
Wants Tax on Beer.
Above the clamor for rigid economy
Is heard the voice of Senator Stewart,
of Nevada, crying aloud for an in
crease in the revenues by placing an
additional tax on beer. The venerable
Senator declares that the present tax
on beer is too small and should be
doubled. He claims that the govern
ment needs more money to meet the
demand made upon it, and as there ap
pears to be no intention of revising
the tariff, the easiest way to raise
additional revenue is to double the tax
The Serfator is very severe on the
brewers. He not only contends that
they do not pay sufficient tax, but he
also charges that they do not brew a
health-giving beverage. He asserts
that if statistics were obtainable on
the subject it would be shown that
the beer brewed in this country kills
one-half of the people who drink it.

WHITE SUPREMACY BASED
ON JUSTICE TO THE NEGRO
The Absolutely Essential Factor in Settling the
Race Question, Says Ex-Congressman Fleming.
Augusta, Dec. 10. —Apropos of the
discussion of the race problem agita
tion following the letter of Senator
Bacon to Congressman Hardwick, Ex-
Congressman W. H. Fleming gave out
an interesting interview to-day.
“I am not in active politics,” he said,
“and do not desire to be—but every
good citizen ought to take an interest
in public affairs.
“The race question at the South cer
tainly does present a problem—a dif
ficult problem. Its proper solution must
come from far-sighted wisdom, not
from blinding passion nor misleading
sentiment. Better than optimism and
better than pessimism is facing the
truth, be it for better or for worse.
“In seeking the solution of any dif
ficult problem, the first step should be
to eliminate the impossible schemes
proposed, and then concentrate on
some scheme that is at least pos
"We often he’ar the epigrammatic
dictum that there are but three pos
sible solutions of our race problem,
deportation, annihilation or assimila
tion (involving miscegenation). I ven
ture to assert that all three of those
so-called possibilities are impossibilities
—two of them certainly are. Not one
of the three presents a working hypo
thesis. Physical facts prevent deporta
tion. Physical facts backed by our
religion, our civilization, our very
selves, forbid annihilation. Physical
facts stressed by an ineradicable race
pride bars the way against assimila
tion. Let us face these truths. The
negroes are going to stay In the South,
and so are the whites.
"The plainly sensible thing to do is
to devise the best modus vivendi or
working b'asis by which the greatest
good can be accomplished for ourselves
and our posterity.
Very First Essential.
“The first, the absolutely essential
factor in such a plan, so far as hu
man ken can now forsee, is white su
pn macy- a supremacy arising from
natural superiority, but based on jus
tice to the negro.
“Those demagogues whose stock in
trade is ‘hating the nigger,’ may gain
some temporary advantage for them
selves, but they will achieve nothing
permanent for the good of the state
or nation. Injustice and oppression
will not solve any of the problems
of the ages. God did not so ordain
“Proud of our race we refuse to
amalgamate with the negro, never
theless, the negro is a human being,
and within the 'brotherhood of man,’
and under the ‘fatherhood of God.’
“Moreover he is an American citi
zen and protected as such by guar
antees of the constitution, that are
as irreparable, I had almost said, as
the bfil of r'ghts itself.
No Repeal of Amendments.
“Nothing could be more useless than
for the South to permit Itself to .be
deceived by those who would wage a
wordy warfare for the repeal of the
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments
to the constitution. That is another
one of the impossible solutions which
should be promptly rejected by all
level-headed men who seek the truth.
We had just as well bay the moon.
As against such blind folly, we may
always expect a solid North, East
and "West, and a South In worse po
litical Isolation than It Is to-day.
“Nor if such a thing as repealing
these amendments were possible, would
it be wise or desirable even for the
South. While it is true that no two
races as distinct as the Anglo-Saxon

and the negro can live together on
terms of perfect equality under a free
government, yet it is equally true that
without some access to the ballot,
present or prospective, some partici
pation in the government, no inferior
race could long protect itself against
reduction to slavery in many of Its
substantial forms—and the South
wants no more of that curse.
XVliite Majority Increasing.
“Negro domination is not possible in
the South for many generations, except
with an increased proportion of ne
groes of which there is no present
prospect. The census shows that the
previous numerical majority of the
whites over the blacks in the ten dis
tinctive Southern states was increased
by 1,002,662 from 1890 to 1900. This In
crease occurred to some extent in each
one of the ten states, except Missis
sippi; and Louisiana changed from a
black majority of 798 in 1890 to a white
majority of 78.818 in 1900.
In a typical Southern city the death
rate in 1903 for white was 11.40 per
thousand—for negroes it was 27.58 per
thousand. These figures are signifi
cant. Nature exacts obedience to her
laws. She knows neither pity nor re
"Moreover, the immigration from all
Europe aids the whites; the negroes
have no outside source of supply.
“The building of the Panama canal
with the inevitable industrial develop
ment of the South, will certainly ac
celerate and augment white immigra
tion, and no doubt the census of 1910
and succeeding decades will show re
sults similar to those of 1900. Thus
is our margin of safety on the score
of numbers continually increasing.
Gives the Negro Justice.
“In the face of these facts, we can
afford to give the negro Justice with
out imperiling white supremacy.
“If future years should develop
enough race pride in the negroes to
make them gravitate to one locality,
they might gain ascendency there, but
there are no signs of such a movement
now, and Georgia at least is in no
danger of such a catastrophe.
“As regards developments of the Im
mediate future under the present fed
eral administration, it Is not in the
power, if it were in the heart, of Pres
ident Roosevelt to do the South much
permanent harm, and for one, I do
not believe he has any intention of
carrying his broad philosophy of a
‘square deal’ to the extent of putting
’black heels on white necks.’ If he
should attempt it. he would fail.
“There is nothing in the constitution
of the United States even as amended
that confers the ballot on the negro,
or on any one else. The gist of the
fifteenth amendment is that it prohib
its a state from discriminating against
any citizen on account of his race.
Such a provision in the laws of Rus
sia would prevent the existing persecu
tion of the Jews. Any state in the
Union has the right to keep ignorance
and vice away from the ballot box,
provided In doing so it does not draw
a line of race discrimination.
Georgia Is Fortunate.
“Georgia has beei) more fortunate
than many of her sister states. She
redeemed herself first after reconstruc
tion, and has maintained her white
supremacy without violating the fed
eral constitution, in the language of
the day, ‘by disfranchising the negro,’
and thus endangering her federal rep
resentation under the fourteenth
amendment. In her future white su
premacy she is just as safe as any of
her sister states. Their necessities may
have called for such laws. Our necessi
ties do not.
“Georgians ought to have enough
common sense in the future as they
have had in the past, not to do a
doubtful and dangerous thing when
there is no need for it.
“Besides, the so-called disfranchise
ment of negroes under the state laws
cannot eliminate them as voters. A
large and increasing proportion will
always be able to qualify themselves
to vote. We will still be obliged to
have a white primary, or else fight
over that portion of the negro vote
that is qualified. The "grandfather
clause' in other states do not keep
out negroes; they simply let in whites
who would otherwise be disqualified.
Our sister states will still have their
"To offer one of these disfranchise
ments laws in Georgia as a political
necessity or a permanent substitute
for a white primary is a patent fraud.
Unfortunately it is a subject rich In
possibilities for the demagogue. There
in lies the pity of It."

She Gave Them Worthless Checks.
Mrs. Chadwick told the bankers that
her securities were netting $750,000,
and she would be glad, she said, to
allow the first Income, after the Citi
zens Bank was made trustee, to be
used to settle the bank's claims and
bonds. But the Income never came
within reach of the bank. Many times
the bank was hard pressed for funds.
When dividends were to be made, the
president and cashier skirmished for
funds. In order to help them out, Mrs.
Chadwick at one time gave them a
check for $50,000 which came back
marked "No funds.’’ She gave two
other checks for $25,000 each, but the
next day telephoned to Mr. Beckwith
not to use them.
The president and cashier were per
plexed at times to make proper show
ing to the directors. Notes, securi
ties and cash were checked up and the
sum represented by the loans to Mrs.
Chadwick were carried as cash de
posits in Cleveland banks. In Beck

One reason why Peruna has found
permanent use In so many homes la

There are a multitude of homes where
Peruna has been used off and on for
twenty years. Such a thing could not
be possible If Peruna contained any
drugs of a narcotic nature.
