Tho Sepato has passed the Edmunds

Washington Dispatch to Atlanta Constitution.
There aro somo Republican statesmen
who are uneasy about the unpublished
Dorsoy letters. Dorsoy has a chest full
of letters. It is made of cedar and is
lined with tin. He hnd it mado just
prior to tlio campaign of 1880, as a sort
of safety box for his political corres
pondence, Ho destroys no lettors, as
lie has made it n rule sinco entering
political life to destroy none. "In that
box thero is evidence enough," said a
friend of Dorscy a few days ago, "to
spot tho reputation of a good many
men who now pose us Christian states
men. Dorsoy doesn't intend to open
this box to the pubiio yet, but it is pret
ty certain that ho intends to open it
after the present Star routo tiial closes
nnd givo part of its contents to tlio pub
lie." Two out of tho threo judges liavo de

Tho total debt of tho Commonwealth

The following comments are mado by
State Treasurer Baily : "The receipts
during the past fiscal year, besides
going beyond tho estimates made, wero
swollen by the proceeds of tho new
loan under the net of Juno 8, 1881, is
sued to redeem the maturing bonds of
the Commonwealth. Of tho $10,000,
000 authorized by llmt act thero wero
issued $0,450,000. Tho maturing
bonds were all redeemed or refunded
at a lower rato and tho annual
interest thereby reduced more than
$200,000. Tho transactions of tho
year show a largely increased sinking
iund reserve, and it is suggested that
such portion of this reserve as may not
bo needed to pay tho interest on tho
pubiio debt bo applied, if practicable,
to tho purchase of somo of tho out
standing intcrest-bearing'gdebt of tho
"Tho increased revcniio shown for
the year may prove to somo extent ficti
tious, as the' tax on loans amounting to
moro thau $GOO,000 now awaits the
decision of n case pending in court and
the Board of Rovenuc Commissioners
liavo allowed rebates on tho Stato tax
paid by somo of tho counties amount
ing to nbout $750,000 more, nnd thus
tlio revenues may be impaired for somo
years to come. Tho estimates of re
ceipts and expenditures for tho coming
fiscal year have been mado on tho sup
position, that tho present revenue sys
tem remains in force and that the ap
propriations shall bo mado on much
tho samo basis as in tho past, but these
amounts may bo largely increased or
diminished by tho action of tho incom
iug Legislature. The tax on building
and loan associations, ninouu'ingto
more than $100,000, ought to bo re
pealed, as well, perhaps, as the tax on
steamship companies ; but much tamp
ering with tho revenues is attended by
very grave dangers, and it is folly to
repeal taxes when it is likely they must
soon bo reimposed. Any sweeping re
duction of tho taxes now imposed on
corporations might in the near future
result in serious embarrassment to the
finances of tho Commonwealth. Two
years ago the Stato Treasurer reported
moro than $3,000,000 of unpaid obliga
tions of tho Commonwealth, nil of
which liavo since been paid, but two
years of depression in mining and
manufacturing industries, attended by
a partial failure of agricultural pro
ducts, might rcproduco a like condition
of affairs. The indiscriminate appro
priations made for tho charitable and
so-called chaiitablo institutions of the
State and their loose methods of ac
counting for tho monoys received and
disbursed by them should bo more com
pletely systematized and regulated by
law, and it would be proper that tho
evidenco of such receipt and proper
disbursement of tho moneys bo laid
beforo tlio Executive, who draws tho
warrants for the same. This would
relieve the Auditor General nnd Stato
Treasurer from a delicate and embar
rassing duty and placo tho responsibi
lity where It properly belongs."

aud wlulo ho did not deny that
ho would appoint Air. Cassidv.
ho gave no assuraiico that ho
would do so. Air. Cassidy was also
interviewed, with about as satisfactory
a result. Tho fact is that Air. Pattison

mined that no ono shall know who his

Werkforthe Legislature.
Apart from the uccessar rofo'rms
in tho inaohincry of stato and local
government which tho Incoming lcgis
laturo ought to make, tho sovcral;np
portionmcnt bills, legislation on the
subject of tho rclntions between capital
aud Ubor, tho report of tho commission
to rcviso tho tax laws of the stato and
tho usual appropriations will bo among
tho important mattors which will ro
qulro tho attention of tho assembled
law-makers. It Is therefore evident
thai tho session will bo crowded ith
business and that if tho legislature is
to get through with Its legttTmato work
In n hundred days tlmo must be econo
mized nnd ndjournrncnlB must bo fow
and far between.
Thero should be no delay in tho orga
nization of cither house of tho legisla
ture. Tho committees should bo
announced nt as early a dato as possible
bo that the legislative mill may begin
to grind its grist in good time. rl ho
apportionment bills should get upon
the calendar as quickly as possible bo
that their consideration may not only
bo fair but thorough. The laws relating
to labor need rovision. A codo which
permits the bayonet to becomo tho
ultima ratio in disputes between
employor nnd employee is
the commonwealth, nnd an intelligent
legislnturo ought to find no difficulty
in improving it. But this is n great
question and cannot bo disposed of in
a hurry. The tax laws .need revision
but the subject is so large nnd thero, is
so great a diversity of opinion in re
gard to it that an entire session ot tho
legislature might be consumed in con
sidering it. Probably tho wisest thing
that can bo done in regard to that
mutter is to lop off such taxes as aro
most oppressive and can bo safely
spared. For instance the tax on per
sonal property, amounting to somo
$400,000 per annum, might bo abolish
ed without injury to tho financial
system of tho state. It is in somo
degree an inquisitorial tax and is very
inequitably assessed; if this cannot be
done it is not likely that any important
change will bo effected in the tax lawn
nt tho approaching session.
If the legislature could find timo lo
consider and pass a general law simpli
fying tho collection of county and
municipal taxes and reducing its cost nn
onerous burden would bo lifted from
the shoulders of the people. Whatever
may bo said of delinquencies in stato
administration it must be -admitted
that the severity of county aud munici
pal taxation touches moro nearly tho
popular mass. The stato revenues are"
derived chiefly from taxes on corpora
tions, while counties nnd cities mako
their levies on tlio property nnd labor
of all. To say nothing ot tho. absurd
method of assessing county and innicl
pal taxes gepcrally in vogue tlio sys
tem of collecting such taxes practiced
in most of the counties and cities is
not ouly costly but ineffectual. Col
lectors are appointed who are generally
political partisans nnd who nro treated
with the greatest indulgence by the, ap
pointing power. They are generally
permitted to retain tho lax duplicates
for two years or longer before thoy aro
required to mako a final settlement.
They freqnently mo tho tax moneys
for their own purposes until they get
ready to turn them over to tho proper (
custodian and in tho cud they generally
manage to secure exonerations. Their
compensation is in most cases much too
great and the work they perform could
bo done under a proper system at a
considerable saving to tho taxpayers.
This is a matter which tho legislature
would do well to consider, unless indeed,
more important interests should occupy
tho time of the sessioti. Aleanwhile let
thero bo no delay in putting the machi
nery of legislation in order, so that
while tho session may bo a short ono.
wholesome and necessary measures
may not fail of passage. Jfarrisburg
New Year's Vows
Time stands with a mirror confront
ing youth and age. Tho glass reflects
tho past and is n guido to the future
only as the rippling waves that break
beforo the vessel's prow aro sign and
token of what's to come. In tho mir
ror wo see our dead past uuburied, the,
idle hopes for a year of empty days. It
is a wonderful thing, this mirror of
lime. Booko aud words nnd acts can
not equal tho subtle forco of its teach
ings, for in its unshrinking snrfnee wo
seo ourselves in tho acts aud deeds, and
impulses and errors and hopes and fears
and pain nnd joy, and nnguish and des
pair and triumph, which have filled
days of hope or nights of horror. Wo

clouds from its limpid deeps, all tho
nets of our lives and we are lost in won

science outraged by sins undi earned
when the year was young. As tho
ghostly procession moves over tlio mir
ror's sin face, the skeletons of our sins
stand out in bodily shnpo more palpable
than our own flesh. It is a wholesome
as well as humiliating retrospect.
Tho power to rccognizo wronged ono
is the evidence of quick conscience.
Hence the traditional vow of New Year
is in every senso a help, It is the out-
lino of a chart to conduot us through
summer seas, wlnoh shall steer clear of
the Bhonls of folly. Tho man without
nraiablo weaknesses, tho woman with
out adorable follies, the child without
charming childishnesses theso nro all
repulsive nnd unworthy rational re
proof. It is only tho sinner conscious
of his sin who can reform into tho most
perfect manhood. Henco tho-vnluo of
tho New Year vows that tho cynical
have come to despiso and tho virtuous
to distrust. To make a vow is to con

tho legislature. This effort to stoal
tho state has been abandoned, however,
partly becauso tho republicans used
ballots which were also illegal, if those
cast by tlio Democrats, were, and partly
