THURSDAY DECEMBER 14, 18fc2
Few things better illustrate the
doctrine o titter uselessness than
the present session of the forty
seventh congress, now sitting in
Washington. The party repre
sented by the majority has just
received the most overwhelming
defeat that ever a political party
suffered in this ceuntry: of its
representatives whose term expires
on the 4th of nest March, 173
failed to be re-elected; such men
as the famons Secor Robeson, of
New Jersey, spending $70,000 to
be re-elected and deservedly fail
ing; and the only doctrine to be
advocated during this winter in
Washington is that of expediency.
And yet how great the demands
for legislation! Apart from local
considerations, aside from the
pressing necessities of our own
locality and state, the affairs of the
nation at large, require legislative
aid to free them from financial
burdens. Perhaps nothing will
more clearly illustrate what we
mean than the following plain
statement. The people of the
United States are paying one
million dollars a day as a war
tax, though the war was
over seventeen years ago. Our
congress is asked to take
off this onerous burden on the peo
ple, and the house committee sug
gests that the tax be taken off whis
ky,tobacco, bank checks, etc , while
private government detectives ar
rest barefooted boys for selling un
stamped matches. The matter of
protection is bad enough, but the
uimeccessary. withdrawal of a
daily million of dollars from the
industries of the couutrv in the
shape of an oneious tax, is worse.
The old differences, if any, be
tween the political parties fade
into insignificance before the over
shadowing presence of matters
that affect national and individ
To-morrow the third railroad
across the continent will be fin
ished, and by New Tears the trav
eler can step into a palace car at San
Francisco and ride over a steel
rail, stone-ballasted, well-equipped
road to New Orleans. In the
spring of 1S33, John Plumbc, at a
public meeting in Dubuque, Iowa,
broached the subject of a Pacific
railway, being, we believe, the
first man to make public advocacy
of the enterprise. Then, such an
undertaking seemed vague and
visionary; now, half a century
later, we have virtually four great
lines of railroad from the Atlantic
to the Pacific. The enterprise,
skill, perseverance and push
necessary to successfully bring to
completion a work of such stupen
duous magnitude as a transconti
nental line of railway, is a fit sub
ject for admiration.
A railroad which runs through
Gilmer and Pickens counties,
Georgia, builds culv&rts of white
marble and lays its ties on a bed
of the same material.
