w henover tho rates undor tho gen
eral railroad law shall not, for short
distances, amount to so much. Tho
act is one of local Interest In all tho
counties through which tho road ex.
tends, and Is also ono of evident Justice.
Tho unlimited power of tho Company
In making charges for distances under
ten miles, was ono liable to abuse and
has been in fact, abused in recent years.
In one caso a shipper has been paying
fifty cents per ton for a distance under
threo miles who will now pay out
twenty cents. Upou anothor kind of
freight, for about threo miles of haul,
where tho charge has been thirty cents
it will dropdown to twenty. Of course
these acts refer to casos whoro tho ship-,
por furnishes his own cars.
Tho absonco of Senators and Itepre
entativw from the sessions of tholr re
spective bodies, has called forth much
comment from tho public prints, and
Homo rather savage advice has beea giv
en to tho Honorable gentlemen, to earn
their salaries by sorao decent amount
Washington advices contain the In
formation that, at a rocent meeting of
radical llepubllcaus held in that city to
ratify tho nomination of S. J. Bowen
for mayor, Senators Tipton and Thayer
and Representatives Ela and other
members of Congress spoke.
This perhaps may account for tho
non-attendauco of Senators and mem
bers during the sessions of Cougre,
They urc speech-making and Interfering
in local politics, with which they have
no concern, and endeavoring to forco
on tho peoplo of Washington, a negro
nominee for mayor. It may be that
the constituents of Messrs. Tipton,
Thayer, Ela aDd others send them to
Congress for this purpose, but wo doubt
It. Certainly there are enough matters
of importance claiming tholr attention,
Without their stirring up tho very dirty
and ill savored puddle of Washington
politics. It is bad enough to have Sen
ators from such a rotten-borough States
as Tipton and Thayer represent without
having them intermeddling with affairs
which do not concern them.
Decisions Which are Decisions.
Some wag records tho following "de
cisions" under the internal revenue
"The latest decisions of the commis
sioner of Internal revenuo cover tho fol
lowing points: Parties using paper
collars must use them from tho original
packages ; that is, from the box in which
they havo been purchased ; and a three
cent revenuo stamp must be attached
to each ono when put on. When the
collar becomes soiled, and is turned
with the clean side out, it must reccivo
another three cent stamp, and must also
be conspicuously stamped with tho word
"turned." Boxes when emptied cannot
be used a second time, but must bo do
stroyed'in the room where emptied, and
tho assessor furnished with a certificate
of the fact. If thrown out of the win
dow or carried out in tho coal scuttle or
wash-tub, such boxes will be subject to
"Bootblacks aro required to use their
blacklngjust as they find it when tho

wlmtever. Tho act of spitting in the
box and smearing tho content with tho
brush constitutes thobootblacker a mix

ufacturer's price. Each boot blacked,
' for which tho sum of five cents Is paid
by tho wearer, must receive at tho ox
penso of tho bootblack, a four and three
quarter cent stamp.
