not understand why it is that capital
cannot bo secured for southern outer-
prises with a promise of twelve per
cent , while northern industries can
obtain all that is needed when the
profit will not exceed six per cunt.
General Gordon ought to bo enough
of a business man to know that cap ) ,
tal goes nowhere except where it can
bo assured of security. This guaran
tee the south has not offered.
Fidelity to financial obligations is
something to bo learned in many of
tbe southern states , and until the
south earns a title to honesty and
agrees to act towards its creditors in a
spirit of justice , neither northern nor
European cipitalia will risk their
money in southern enterprises , oven
though one hundred per cent should
be" the promised reward. Repudiation
and credit never travel hand in hand.
Ilonett dealing alone can secure confi
dence with capitalists , and make them
friends. Until the southern people
understand this , and act upon it as an
axiom , they will make little advance
toward that solid state of prosperity
enjoyed by tbe north ,
THE PACIFIC RAILROAD EM
The domain of the Pacific railroad
of the United States is an empire cm
bracing an arcn greater than that o
the original thirteen states of tin
union. According to the official report
port of the national commissioner o
milwrys , the five great trunk linci
that are known as Pacific railroads nn
entitled by their charters to 181,180 ,
112 acres , or 28,728 ! square miles , o :

teen states cover an area of ni8,75i

This Pacific railroad empire , com
luted at nearly throe hundred thou's
nd square miles of government lands
Deludes also vast tracts donated by
ho various states. Texas alone has
olcd almost as much land to the
'oxas Pacific as was donated to tha
oad by the national government.
The aggregate sales of railroad landa
p to 1881 , as reported to the com
lissioner of railways , is placed a
1,003,027 acres and the amount real
zed therefrom is computed as 530 ,
83,705. It also transpires that whih
ho five Pacific trunk roads were on
itlod to 114,153,01 ; , ' ! acres of publi <
inds , eighteen mouths ago , on ac
ount of mileage of railroad con
tructod and completed , they had only
akon out patents on 10,087,200 acres ,
n other words , 'over one hundred
nillion acres of the public lands do
latcd to the Pacific railroads , and so
part for them , remain on the records
if the states and territories where
hey are located as government lands
xomptod from local taxation. In
California alone , over 25,000,000 acres
olonging to the Central Pacific
liirond , and including vast tracts
f the most valuable lands on the
'acific coast remain unpatcntcd and
xompt from taxes. In Wyoming
lillionH of acres of valuable coal
inds remain untnxed , In Nebraska
ad Kansas fully six million acrea of
'acifio railroad lands go untaxod.
And yet the main object of donating
iis vast empire to the Pacific trunk
lilroads was to encourage the rapid
jttlomont of the states and territor
is west of the Missouri. The char-
> rs of the Pacific roads expressly
mitod the time within which the
irporations should dispose of their
iiids , and such lands as remained un
> ld wore to bo made subject to homo
oad and pre-emption settlement.
i spite of these precautions the
iant corporations that have built the
acifio trunk lines have circumvented
10 law , and still retain ownership of
10 vast domain they have forfeited -
hilo at the same time they continue
i shirk their just share of taxation ,
fauld the feudal barons of
uropo have dared to attempt
ich monstrous highway robberies ?
i there anything in all history that
Furs a parallel to this acquisition of
iree hundred thousand square miles

Tin ; Chicago Herald publishes the
uo inwardness of the causes which
ill probably load to the recall of
> . Flinn from Ohomuitz , and the
itontion of the consulate for the

x years ago Mr. Flinn was addicted
i the excessive use of intoxicating
luors , and was cured as it thought

'ashington inobriutu asylum Ho
rning he at once assumed an iiu-

ss that his employers sought a con-
late for him in order to atFord

1 one of the Chicago papers , who
ked up his past record without giv-
g him credit for his reformation of
bonutituljv clean , tronqi
six years' standing , and mailed copie
to every manufacturer and exporter ii
Chemnitz. The consequence was tha
on his arrival his reception was extremely
tremely mortifying. The Gormni
government refused to grant hin
official rocognitionuand in utter de
epondcncy ho nought consolation it
his old habit. It would bo interesting
to know what part , if any , Mr. Oripgi
took in this malignant scheme to drnj
down a talented journalist struggling
to rebuild a reputation injured yean
ago by a habit which is unfortunately
lee common among hin profession.
A PARTY NEED.
If the democratic party is searching
vainly for a policy4 the ropublicar
parly In congress is an badly in nuct
of n leader. At no time during the
past twenty years has the want ol
popular leadership in the house ol
representatives boon so clear and
striking , Twice last wcok the rcpub'
licans were completely outwitted and
outgonerallcd by their democratic op
ponents simply because bf the lack ol
that harmony which good leadership
would given them , The delay in the
Lynch-Ohalmora election case and the
refusal to take up the tariff commis
sion bill are the instances in point.
In both cases nothing but bad tactics
displayed bn the republican side of the
house enables the democrats to stave
off necessary legislation and prevents
the requisite harmony and unity In
the republican ranks.
What is needed is good leadership
and a proper discipline of the party
forces. There are men competent teat
at least follow in the footsteps of
James G. Bluino and James A. Garfield -
field as party loaders. The trouble is
that they seem content to remain in
the background and leave that duty
to others who are no match for men
like Eandnll and Cox on the demo
cratic side of the houiq. John A.
[ \usson is an able parliamentarian and
lOBscssca ability enough to lead , but
10 rofuscB to take the plaoo for which
10 is fitted. There are several others
vho might to named who are better
ittod for the position than George M.
[ tobcson , who aspires to a position
which is paralyzed by his former con-
icctiou with the navy department
md his evident control of the speaker.
Jno day of Ulaino'o splendid general-
ihip would bo worth a year of the
titling botchwork which has harrasaed
.ho republican majority in their of-
orts to make a policy for the party
md expedite business. And a Binglo
ipeoch like those formerly delivered
> y General Garfield would make more
: ampaign ammunition than a dozen of
ho second hand and revamped ora-
ions which have boon shot off in scc-
iona during the present cession of
What the republican party in the
louse of representatives needs is a
nan from whom they can take thoi
: uo when important matters of Icgia
ation are brought before the house , a
nan of sound judgment and whose
personal character entitles him to the
ospect ot the opposition , while hi *
bilities as parliamentarian and de
later ensure him fair treatment from
ho other side of the house.

Tim scheme for the seating of

Whether a reference of the diiler-
ices between the Carpenter's union
id the employers to the board of
ado committee on arbitration for ad-
istnicnt-bo successful or not , it shows
ffiso disposition on the part of the
.rpentors . to seek by arbitration to
'oid a strike and the consequent loss
time and labor which would ncccs-
rily follow. The reference does not
ocludo a strike if the committee are
lable to devise an acceptable com-
IOUMBO , but it does show a dusiro to
Ivo the difficulty amicably before
acceding to moro radical measures.
Iu making such n reference neither
nployers nor employed can expect
o full force of their demands to bj
tistiod , unless it is nude clearly ap-
iront to the committee that such do-
anda are moderate and just. If
tcncr happnns in arbitrations that
nlpromlscd are made , neither side
tting'the full measure of its de-
inds , but gaining ouch further in-
; ht into their relations as to influence
em to accept modified propositions.
The board of trade committee is
composed of business men whoa
minds , it is fair to presume , are un
biased , and therefore prepared t
listen to the statements of the partie
referring , and to give to every fac
duo and impartial consideration. The ,
may bo presumed to have a suflicicn
general knowledge of the industry as
by the aid of susli information as the
journeymen carppntora and their employers
ployors may furnish , to reach on in
telltgont concl union and make a fai
Of course thcro is nothing abso
lutely binding upon cither parly to
abide by tha nward of the committee
Neither is there in England , whcr
arbitration has been in succcssfu
operation for a dozjn or moro years
But it is there considered a matter o
honor if parties appeal to a board o
arbitration to reconiiizo ita authority
and stand by its decisions ; and ver ;
few instances are recorded where
there has boon a refusal to nccopt the
award as final for the period dcsig
An this is the first conference hoh
under a board of arbitration hero , its
result will bo watched with interest
If it happily succeeds in finding a
modus vivondibetween the parties
acceptable to both , and so avoiding u
strike and an indefinite interruption
of labor , it will greatly encourage
other industries , where differences
arise between employers and employee
to appeal to the same tribunal , and i
will bo a fortunate day for the com
munity and the country when such

Ono Hundred Sacks of tbo Crop of
1882 Rocolvod In St. Louis.
8t Touls Republican , April 30th.
The earliest new wheat in a market
able quantity in this market was re
ceived hero yesterday , and the highest
price per bushel perhaps in the his
tory of the grain was obtained on
'Change. Messrs. S. W. Cobb & Co. ,
received 100 sacks of the 1882 crop
from Clarkaville , Johnson county ,
Ark. , and it sold by auction on
the board to John Kauii'mann ,
city miller , at $4 CO per
bushel. The hundred sacks contained
ibout 250' bushels , the grain was in
quantity near a No. 2 white winter ,
md was in fair condition , yet must
iavo some drying for ready milling
jurposes. The bidding started off at
SI , but this was soon raised , and there
lontinucd an increasing contest for
.ho lot at heavy and heroic advances ,
iach receiving applause , and when the
lighcr figures were reached there was
ixcitedcheoriug and clapping of hands
md waving of hats. Ono grain man ,
tt the bid of $4 , vras most onthuai-
latic , and the announcement of the
ale to Mr. Kauffraaun at $4 50 was
; rooted with an ovation of plaudits.
Che first receipt hero of the crop of
881 was from Texas , Juno 9 ; in 1880
rom the same stao May 29 ; in 1879 ,
rom Now Madrid , Mo. . Juno 13 , and
n 1878 from southern Illinois , Juno
' . A week or two ago there was a
ample of the new crop ehown on the
Cincinnati exchange which was sent
rom Georgia , but that was sufficient-
y south to allow of an earlier harvest
'ho merit of the lot received and sold
lore yesterday is in the fact that it
amp from a section tributary to St.
jouis as a market.
An Important Year In Politics.
The elections of 1882 will bo watched
rith keen interest , first , because of
ho number and importance of the
ifSces to be filled ; second , because the
esult will bo an indication of the pop-
ilar intimation of President Arthur's
dministration ; third , because they
fill show the progress of the contest
> f the people against machines and
losses , and also the development of
ho movement in the south. They
rill further have more or loss direct
tearing on the presidential campaign
if 1884 , for the control of both houses
i congress , and the government of
nero than twenty states will be do
erminod by the issue.
