THURSDAY, JUN 1, 187L
TUB DRILL PARDON,
It will not do for Repablioai newspapers and
Bepublioan politicians U attempt to extenu
ate Bnch a seandalous violaiiea of decency as
Is Involved in tlia pardea of Joan II. Brill.
Outside of the ooparativelj small number
of wire-pullers, who too frequently
imagine that they conatitute the
Republican party, and that . the
rank and lie of retire are no better than bo
many cattle, to be driren in whatever direc
tion it may please their masters, is the real
Republican party, composed of reasonably
honest and intelligent oitisens who have
opinions of their own; and it has been amply
demonstrated at more than one election sinoe
the oonclosion of the war that rery many of
them are much more anxious to have the pub
. lio offices filled by good men than they are for
mere party triumph. It is an undenia
ble fact that the Republican
party has been losing its hold
npon a very large number of the intel
ligent voters who were the most earnest sup
porters of its principles during the war for
the preservation of the nation. Why has
this happened? The Demooratio party has
, not changed in the least; its principles are
the same as they were in 18C0; its praotioes
wherever it has obtained power have been
Buch as to exoite alarm at the prospect
of its obtaining control of the Govern
ment, and it has made no headway
whatever on its own merits against
Republicanism. Why, then, is not the Re
publican party as strong to-day as it was in
1865? The answer to this question is easy,
and we have only to point to the example of
the so-called Republican , leaders who de
manded the pardon of Brill, to that of the
Republican Oovernoi who granted the par
don, and to that of the Republican news
papers that apologize for the soandalons
transaction. This is but one instance out of
many to . prove the corruption that
exists in the Republican, party, and
the true way to check the advances of the
Democracy and to promote the interests of
the great party to which the preservation of
the Union is due, is not to apologize for
crime that every honest voter knows is a
personal injury to himself as well as to the
public at large; not to advocate men whose
dishonesty and want of principle arejnotorious
for important publio offioes, or support them
because by means of the lowest arts of the
trading politicians they manage to get
their names - npon the regular party
tiokets, but to boldly, vigorously, and inoes
santly denounce corruption in any shape that
it may be presented. The Republican party
is not being injured in the least by the De
mocracy, but, on the contrary, it is wounded
in the house of its friends; and such an article
&s that which we find to-day in the columns
of one of our Republican morning contem
poraries, endeavoring to extenuate the crime
of Brill and to apologize for the aotion
of Governor Geary in pardoning him,
at the bidding of a ring of political wire
pullers, who hope to use him in the future as
they have in the past, will do more to weaken
the Republican party next October than
anything we can say on the other side of the
question. The falsification of the eleotion
returns is a crime for which no exouse can be
advanced under any ciroanastances. It strikes
at the dearest rights of every citizen; it must
of necessity be committed deliberately
and with premeditation, and the
frequency with which it is
committed requires that it shall be punished
with the severest penalties of the law. If
Brill had been a Democrat, the very papers
that are now endeavoring to apologize for his
pardon, and to represent him as rather an ill
used individual than otherwise, wonld have
been most eager in denouncing him. They
may imagine that they are advancing the
cause of Republicanism by such a course of
action as this, but they are fearfully mis
taken, for every attempt to extenuate the in
iquities perpetrated by men who call them
selves Republicans alienates thousands of
voters of the very class that constitutes the
strength of the Republican party, and plays
directly into the hands of the Democracy.
With regard to the influences brought to
bear upon Governor Geary to induce him to
grant the Brill pardon, we reiterate what we
have said before, that the complimentary re
solution of the convention was one of the
conditions of the pardon. Geary's baokers
may try to explain away this faot, but a fact
it remains, and the Governor cannot deny it
and speak the truth. Apart from this, how
ever, why is it that his Excellency refuses to
allow the papers in the Brill case to be made
public ? If the pardon was granted for pro
per reasons, and at the iobtanoe of men in
whose integrity the publio have confidence,
there would be no neoessity for jealously
guarding them from the light of day.
The fact is, the Governor does not dare
to brave publio opinion by an honest and
open exposition of all the facts of the case.
He knows that the pardon was granted to
oblige certain notorious political tricksters
who do not possess the confidence of honest
citizens, and who have dugraced the party
they profess to support by their past nil
deeds. The pardon Has granted to oblige
these men, because Qaary hoped that they
wonld prove useful to him iu the future, aud
by granting it he insulted every honest
man who ever voted for him, or who ever
believed that he was anything ele than a
political peddler of the lowest and meanest
description. It will not do for Geary's friends,
in the face of the Fickon, Landis, and Brill
pardonu, to prate about the integrity of tbe
Governor, who has by these . performances
done for himself what his worst enemiei
could scarcely have done for him in the way
of political annihilation. '
vccbtfuz lirrRorsnsyra. '
Tan liability to freshets on the Sohnylkill has
of late years been an ever increasing anxiety to
property-holders an J dwellers on tbat river.
This year any serious disaster was fortunately
escaped, but suoh immunity cannot bw Calcu
lated open, and every reonrring spring- must
be expected to bring its season of inseenrif y
and peril. Thia is partly the prioe we pay fcr
position, and, with all the- risks, Philadelphia
could illy afford to lose the incomparable ad
vantages which the confluence of the Dels,
ware and the Sohuylkill affords her over every
ther Amerioan city. Philadelphia loves the
Sohuylkill and values it, but she is also a
little bit afraid of it. The plaoid swerp
of the river in August in a very different thing
from the angry boil and rush of Maroh. Ex.
perience of its power we have already had to
our cost, and it is very possible we may have
yet sterner evidences of it if the present
policy of waterside improvements is not is
some way modified. Publio attention has not
until now been called to the serious erroroaoh
ments being made upon the Sohuylkill ehan
nel at different points from the Wire Bridge
to below Gray's Ferry. These oonsist in the.
building of wharves and embankments far
into the stream. At some points these werks
appear to streteh half-way across the former
water surfaoe. The Pennsylvania Company
seems to have set this perilous example. The
land the company has reclaimed and banked
in from the river makes an awkward bend in
the stream, and appears, to the eye at leait, to
constitute a serious obstruction. With so
powerful a precedent set them, other com.
pantos, as well as manufacturers and private
parties, have not scrupled o inorease their
areas at the expense of the river, and a trip
along the bank would indubitably surprise the
citizen who had not visited the looality within
the last two years. To do every one jnstioe,
it ttust be stated that the parties to
these improvements claim to have built
only to the Port Wardens' line.. How
the Port Wardens could have- made
suoh an eocentrio line as that which bounds
the Pennsylvania Company's wharf ia not
clear, but we will suppose that they did com
mit that vagary, and that all these- wharf
builders are within the letter of the law. The
questions will still arise: Are they right in
suoh extreme aotion? and are they not
seriously imperilling life and property
on the river banks? There is grave
concern felt by people doing- busi
ness and living on the river from Chesnut
street southward, and dismal predictions are
made concerning the results of the next
freshet. The question is not easily decided,
but one thing ia tolerably certain either these
levees should not ba raised at all, or they
should be mad 3 uniform throughout the city
limits. When water is hemmed in,, after the
obstruction ia passed the- reaction carries it
as far beyond the natural limits as it had
previously been contracted. This- is a natural:
law, and in times of exceptional commotion.
it is easy to imagine or rather it is not easy
to imagine the consequences. At present,,
parties who do not care to construct these
wharves, or who have no occasion for them,
are taken at a great disadvantage. A chooses
to build a wharf 150 feet long. Very well for
him if he can afford it, or has use
for it. But A'a neighbor, Mr. B, does
not desire such an addition to his property.
Straightway his land is deluged by the stream
sweeping around Mr. A' breakwater. This
is, in a measure, the case even when the
water is the lowest. The element of fairness
seems somehow laoking in this matter. Pro
perty of all kinds has its rights. The men
who improve the city, who attract commerce,
and tend to develop our interior xesouroes,
are to have their hands strengthened, of
course, but not surely at the expense of other
citizns whose usefulness to the community
may be quite as considerable ia
other ways. The most equitable
manner of adjusting the trouble would be to
have the city construct a uniform series of
wharves or levees from below the dam to- the
Delaware. Tbe distance is not great, and
the expense would certainly be made up in
the improvement of real estate and the con
sequent tax returns. Until something of this
kind is done, we may expect individual enter
prise to strive and push at the expense of its.
Tbe General Presbyterian Assembly, now
in session at Chicago, has reoommended that
the presbyteries unite in making arrange
ments for the observance, in 1S72, of the
third centennial celebration of the massacre
of St. Bartholomew, and other similar reli
gious events. The wisdom of keeping alive
the memory of a horrible slaughter, which,'
wicked as it was, was nevertheless perpetrated
in an age of persecution when Protestants as
well as Catholics sometimes committed atroot
ties at which humanity now shudders, may
well be questioned. If the Quakers are to
commemorate the persecution of their mem
bers by the Pnritans of New England, the
Methodists to commemorate all the persecu
tions they have endured at the hands of other
Protestant sects, the Catholics to commemo
rate all the real or fancied wrongs they have
suffered at the hands of Protestants, and if
all the old controversies and contentions are
to be revived, we shall have a happy time of
it in this land of religious liberty. For prac
tical purposes it seems decidedly better to
agree to disagree, and to let the intolerance
of tbe past serve only as a warning of the
necc bfcity for maintaining the tolerance of the
A tzleqbam froui Washington states that
if the change of time in the payment of pen
sions had not recently caused an unusual
drain upon the national treasury, the de
crease of tbe publio debt during the month
of May would have amounted to about nine
millions of dollars, or at the rate of more
tLan one hundred millions per annum. De-
Kpite all tbe reductions of taxes, the revenues
still largely exceed the Bum necessary to sus
tain the Government, and the debt is still
being liquidated with unnecessary rapidity.
Thk verdiot of the Coroner's faq-aest upon
the bodies of some of the violins of tbe Pitts
ton, disaster presents a very f oroibla and pro
bably a truthful aooount oJ tbe causes of that
calamity. It states that tbe- Mining' Inspector,
as well as the mine operators, failsd to ob
serve, striotly, the requirements of the law.
R is painfully evident that better efforts are
needed to eafcroe the statute which was
wrong from the Legislature by the agonizing
scenes at Avondrde. In Great Britain similar
laws are rigidly executed; and they must also
be sternly enforced in this Commonwealth if
ordar is ever to- be established in- the coal
regions. The lawlessness of some of the
miners is bad enough, but even it is less
criminal than the neglect of mine operators
to make proper pr 3 visions for the safety of
their workmen; and the State- should begin
the great work of asserting the supremacy of
law and justioe over both capital and labor,
by a determined effort to punish coal capital
