and wo trust a law will bo forruulatui and

Freezo'a suggestion into eflect :
"Tha report of tha supcrintendont of sol'
titers' orphan schools for tho year 1878 is 1-
foro us. Inasmuch as the war ended in April,
1865, tho'legislation admitting children of rot
titer sick and otherwise disabled, born sineo
January, I860, pcetns to be pushing things to
an extremity. It scorns, too, that this change
in tho law admits children not orphan', and
lias increased tho number of children in tho
schools largely. Thoy now number 2,520 and
vio juo told that, at least thrtt-fturtht of tho
children now in school could not havo been ad'
milled under the original system. That state
ment is sufficient to show that there is some

now suffice for nil tho soldiers' orphans. But
under tho present ono wo haro thirteen tchoo't
and eleven houtct. And-fur tho year 1870thcn
aru rcquued $:!50,000.00 for tho general ex
penses, nnd $10,000.00 for ejrnenta of the d.
partment. Now a largi amount of this money
can bo saved, not only without detriment to
tho children, but with a positive adrantago to
In addition to tho above $300,000.00 thero
has been appropriated for years annually th
sum of $7,000 to enable tho girls from the or
phan schools who show an aptitudo for teach
ing to enter a Normal school and thero com
plete their education and fit themselves to
There are, wo believe, now, ten normal
schools in operation. They need tho assist
anoa of tho state and havo been receiving it.
Ihe suggestion is, to abolish these soldier or
phan schools entirely, and to distribute these
2,52(3 children among the ten normal schools;
and then you get for themiHctter educational
advantages, and at a greatly diminished cost
to tho stato.
By this you get clearot $10,000 departmeu
tal expenses you get clear of tho principals,
teachers, maids and matrons of twenty-five ah
tinct institutions, with an expenditure of, say
$100,000, at tho least and other matters to
which wo need not call attention. This plan
will benefit the state and tho scholar, and
ought to be adopted.
Tho normal schools could reccivo them all
without any additional, outlay or expense
And an empty treasury, a cry for economy,
and profession of reform bring this matter
up fof prompt attention.
DU. MARY K. WALKER.
We seriously object to the constant taunts
being used in .reference to Dr. MaryE. Walk
er. What if she does wear male attire ? If
she is more comfortable in such a dress, or if
she believes it to be more healthy than the
usual mode.there is no sound reason why sho
should not bo allowed that privilege. Certain
it is that she does not make any indecent ex
posure of -her person, which is more thau
many of our modern belles can say when
dressed tor a ball or the drawimr room.
If there is anything masculine in her na
ture, it should bo remembered that from her
youth sho has been compelled to bo her own
protector. When in 1802 she crossed tho Po
tomao into Virginia with Banks' Division
sue was respected by every soldier in it. On
the march, in tho bivouac, or at her post
in me Lour ot conflict, she showed moro endu
ranoe than manya shoulder straDDed stinrenn
Wo speak whereof wo know, having marched
and capped together. Wo have seeo her
bind up tho wounds'of tho stricken soldier,
administer medicine to the sick, and like an
angel ot xueroy console tho dying. Sho had a
mission to accomplish, and noblv filled it
Whatever may be her ideas as to tho ouostiou
of dress, that is, a matter of her own, and
should not blind our eyes to tho good tho hcu
Uen. Joshua T. Owens, is a bright and
shining light in tho Bepublican party of this
State, and like similar .bright and shining
lights, has his abodfrin Philadelphia. Not
content with making money in the ordinary
way he is attempting to lobby a bill through
the Legislature tho object of which is togive
him a monopoly of the legal advertising in
rmiaaetphia. Corrupt as many of our lests.
lators are we da not believe ihey dale place
themselves on record m favor of such an Inf
mous proposition. In fact, the Senate Com
mittee has already "tat.down on it." but then
Paddy is full of expedient, and is a useful
politician. It is said he has secured tho pas
sage ot a similar bill in New York. If that
be so he should rest content, and not seek to
piuuder other localities
But if the gailant Owens doei get his little
"William" through, we suggest that in the
Brat number of his paper he insert the fhl
lowing legal document, which is strictly oflv
ciai. ii reiaies to an episode in his army

Mr, Haves last Wednesday sent to the
senate the nomluatlou of JuJ0-e William
Butler, of West Chester, to be United Sta
tesdutrict judge for the eastern district of
Pennsylvania, iu successor to the late Judge
The people the distressed tax payers-
should remember that the election of a Dem
ocratic Congrrts In 187C, has reduced the
national expenditures $10,000,000. per an
num, and this, too, despite a hostile Senate
and extravagant Executive. In a few weeks
the present Congress will expire, and until
the close of Hayes' term the Democrats will
have control of both branches of Congress,
and can and will enforce further reductions
In expenditure, and carry Into effect other
much needed reforms. We can only explain
thertadlness with which the Kepublican
masses have acquiesced In the corrupt and
wattclul cxtrAvsgauco of their party for the
past fourteen years, on tho scoro that they
have been dud by their leaders and news
We would, however, brhfly call attention
to a few pertinent facts. As an illustration
wo will take the expenses of our Army and
Navy, and contrast them with former years.
For this purpose let us revert to the war of
1812-1 1 with tho mighty force of England,
and ft contest between victorious veterans ou
the one side and raw levies on tho other. We
had a coast to defend from Maine to the
Gulf. Our northern frontier was constantly
harassed from Canada. The Indians were
tho hired allies of the British. Our means
of communication and transportation wero
difficult, and It cost more to transport a piece
of artillery from tho sea-beard to the lakes,
than It now does to move a regiment of ar
tillery from and to the same points.
Our currercy was from 40 to 60 per cent
below par. On laud we lost 40,000 men
kllled'In battle. At the same time our Navy
was unusually active on every lake'and sea
as will be seen from the fact that we cap
tured S5 Brltttsh men of war carrying 886
cannon, 2300 merchantmen mounting 8000
guns, besides driving ashore or shipwrecking
20 vessels of war carrying 800 gun, and
capturing over 30,000 seamen. In contrast,
we lost 25 vessels of war mounting 350 guns,
1407 merchantmen and 21,000 seamen. It
will thus be seen that this was quito a war,
and the cost of It fell upon tho yean of 1812-
13-14. Now what was the cost ?
In 1812 the Madison Administration spent
for military objects, including forts, and
everything pertaining to land operations
$11,817,000; in 1812, $19,650,000 ; In 1814,
$20,300,000, making an aggregate of $51,'
767,000 ; and in 1812 it spent for all naval
objects, Including gunboats In and around
$7,300,000, making an aggregate of $17,659,'
000, and a total for both branches of the
service of $09,426,000 for three years of the
Our next war was with Mexico. 'In this,
also, our Navy was considerably employed
but the main operatloas were on land, in
foreign country, and at a long distance from
our base of supplies. As a result, we extend'
ed the boundary line of Texas to the Bio
Grande, conquerrcd and and annexed New
Mexico and California, as well as the terri
tory between the Sierra Nevada and Rocky
Mountains, thus securing the richest gold
and silver mines In the world. Let us ex
amine the cost of that war..
In 1846 the Polk Administration spent on
the army $10,418,000; in 1847 $35,840,000
in 1848, $27,688,000; making a total of $73,-
911,000. In 1840 it spent on the navy, $6,.
455,000 ; in 1847, $7,900,000 ; In 1818, $9,.
403,000 ; making a total of $23, 763,000.
Here we have an aggregate for both branch'
es of the service In the three years of the
Mexican war, amounting to $97,704,000.
Aou coma the contrast. For the past
three years, under a Bepublican adminlstra
tion, there has been a total expenditure for
naval and military purposes of $1 65,124,000.
This, too, has been in a time of profound
peace, if we may except the frontier, skU'
mishes with the Indians, brought on by th
rascality of Indian Agents, and the inefficien
cy and barbarity of our army leaders. To sup
press these outbreaks, however, we have an
army of 25,000 men, but somehow or another,
very few of them are on the frontier. To
this must bo added the cheapness of supplies
and the increased facilities for transporta
tion, t or the Navy there has been abso
lutely no use except to carry Government
officials and their friends on pleasure excur
To sum up, then, our Army and Navy in
the past three years, in a time of profound
peace, has cost morn thau twice as much as
during the three years of war with Great
Britain in 1812-14 ; and fifty per cent more
on the Army and one hundred per cent more
on tbe Navy than during the three years for
carrying on the Mexican War. In a word
the aggregate cost for carrying on the two
wars with England and Mexico was $167,'
130,000, each war lasting nearly three years,
whilst the Republican Administration have
expended for mllitrry aud naval purposes
In three years, as Btated, $165,124,000, or
only $12,006,000 less than the cost of these
two expensive wars I
These facts are taken from official sources,
and should open tho eyes of Bepublican tax
payers. There never will be economy under
The bill providing for an amendment to
the Constitution of this State abolishing the
Hoard of Pardon has been favorably report
ed by the Senate committee to which it was
referred, and will probably meet the assent
of tbe Legislature. This particular feature
of the new Constitution has not operated
satisfactorily. The first Board organized
under its provisions was composed of officials
who were in every way unfitted for the duties
imposed upon them. They have suioeeded
In showing all the odious possibilities of tbe
misuse of the pardoning power, and have to
a great extent undone tbe work of tbe Crim
inal Courts. Responsibility Is so divided
that it is lost. Criminals now calculate with
as much certainty ou a retrial of their cases
at liarrisburg, after sentence, as they do up
on the relurn of daylight after the sun seta.
It is possible, If the Pardon Board bad been
made of better stuff, and bad comformed its
action with due deference to tbe proper ad
ministration or criminal justice, that Its ca
pacity for evil would not have been disclos
ed at the outset. But It Is better far'tbat tha
pardoning power should he lodged in tbe
bands of the Governor, He can be called
to account for Its misuse, and be acts under
such a sense of personal and undivided re
sponsibility that his mistakes are almost cer
tain to be venial ones and not induced by
corrupt or sinister motives. There Is hardly
room for doubt that If tho proposed amend
rnent Is submitted to the people for consid
eration it will be ratified with but a slight
show or ilmeaUJlecord.

The peoplo have a chance now to look at
the exact propottlons of the little bill that
the Pennsylvania 'railroad and Allegheny
county unite in pressing upon the Legisla
ture in the matter of tho riot damages. Tbe
extent of the proposition Is that the State
shall pay four millions (towards thcc dama
ges, an 1 that Allegheny may, If she chooses
or If the sufferers can recover it from her by
process of Uw, pay twenty-five per cent of
tbe amount of damage claimed.
It Is certainly ono of the very coolest prop'
osltions that has ever been Introduced into
any legislative body. The State arrays It
self by the side of Alltgheny county and
says to her that, although the law declares
that the county shall be responsible for dam
ages caused by riot within lierborders, she
shall In no event pay more than one-fourth
of the damages suffered. To the sufferers by
Jhe riot the State says that she will pay them
damages to the extent of four millions uf
dollars, provided that If they recover In their
suits against Allegheny county thy shall
not requlro tho county to pay more than one
fourth of the amount recovered, even though
their dividend out of the State's four millions
amounts to less than the remaining three-
fourths. Allegheny county, under this bid,
secures an abtoluto release from three-fourths
of any Indebtedness that may be adjudicated
against her in the courts aud a probable re
lease against the whole. Indeed it is un
doubtedly intended to secure her n full ac
quittance. All these words apparently im'
posing a possible liability on her for a fourth
part of tho damages are put in to deceive,
and to sweeten the bill presented to tho rest
of the state; to give au opportunity to say
that Allegheny suffers heavily enough in
paying one-fourth nf the damages.
The design Is ridiculously transparent.
The Pennsylvania railroad company, whose
claim alone the county fenr, taken the
State's four millions, nnd will bp ready with
devout thankfulness to sign fir the county a
clear release, Tan county stands in witli
the company to get this beneficent legislation
from the State. It Is a beautiful gvn) rf
thimble-rig, In which the railroad and tbe
county take the spoils and the green cnun
tryman pays them.
Tht.ro can be. no question in tbe mind of
any fair person that the State should refuse
to interfere in tho matter at issue between
the county ot Alliegheny and the Pennsyl
vanla railroad company, until that matter
has been finally adjudicated by the courts ;
then, If the county is required to pay the
riot damages, it is time enough for it to come
to the state and ask it to bear n part ot the
low. But now the county maintains in the
courts that she is not bound to pay the Penn
sylvanla railroad company Its losses, because
the riots that occasioned them wero directly
caused by evil acts of.the company's officers.
This claim we believe can be substantiated.
The railroad company also knows it, and
knows that' its cbanc-j of recovery before a
Pennsylvaniajury would be very slim in
Aud so it prefers to raid the state ; and
combines with its threatened victim, that a
cumniou cause uisy be made against the
defenseless people I Shall this Iniquity be
accomplished I Wool Woe I unto those
legislators whu say yea. Lancaster Intelli
Washington, D. (i, Feb., 12, 1879.
Tho Honsj has disposed of all the appro
priation bills but three tbe sundry civiljthe
one known as the "deficiency"' bill, and the
legislative, executive and judicial. Over
these, however, it is thought there will be
considerable discussion and delay, even be
fore they go, to tbe Senate to receive the in
evitable additions of that body. On Satur
day the House passed the Army Appropria
tion bill, embracing the proposition to re
organize the Army, but omitting that to
transfer the Indian Bureau to the War De
partment. It bad also attached an amend
ment permitting railroads, which have tele
graph lines for the transaction of their own
business, to open them for public use.
Senator Butler, of S. O., who lately intro
duced au amendment to tbe Texas Pacific
R. R. bill, is himself friendly to tbe original
bill, and presented the amendment "byre
quest." It Is an extremely gratifying fact
that this Texas Pacifia road, which offers to
the South probably its last chance to secure
Government aid for a Pacific connection, is
gaining friends everywhere in that section.
Tbe investigation of the Tribune cipher Is

posed to have sent cipher despatches from

charges, but a thousand Insinuations, had
been published, has nfade a statement and
submitted to a cross-examination. Mr. Til

Among the few bills finally passed at Ibis
session I am very glad to note that which
went through the Senate on Friday, which
allows womeu to appear as attorneys before
tbe U. S. Supreme Court. The first appli
cation for such permission was made by Mrs,
lielva A. Lock wood, of this city, several
yean Blnce. Tbe passage of the bill through
House and Senate has been, due in great
measure to her unremitting exertions. There
is no doubt that Mr. Hayes will approve tbe
Tbe Commissioner of Pensions now estl
mates that $34,000,000 will be required to
pay the amounts due ou existing pension
certificates, under the late arrears of pension
act, and be also believes there will be re
quired an increased appropriation each year
hereafter. From present appearances
inaugn uougresa wiil doubtless make an
appropriation before adjournment, it is not
likely any of this $34,000,000 will be dis
tributed for many mouths.
Apparently Jdr. Haves has even Ufa con-
fidenco to tbe Democratic Senate of the 46th
Congress than In the Republican of the 46th,
He is having furnished him a list of all the

places before tbe tbe 4th of March.

Baltimore, Feb. 10. Louis Stalling?, fifty
five years of itjj, a brickmakcr by trade,
committed suicide this morning by blowing
his brains out with a shot gun. At A quarter
of eleven o'clock, alter several attempts to
get his wife to come dowu stairs, In which
he at last succeeded, he went up to tbe back
room on the third floor, whero he had the
gun all loaded aud lejdy fur action. Tak
ing off his right shod ami stocking, he fast
ened a string to his great toe, and the other
end uf this btring be tied to the trigger of
theguu. Then hr bent down his head and
put the muzzle of the gun in his mouth,
aud with a downward movement of his foot
pulled the trigger and entered into eternity
He put the gun so far in his mouth that tiot
one of his teeth was injured, and his face
was in no way disfigured. All the back part
of bis head wag oloitn out, and his bralus
were scattered about the lumber in the room
For Borne time past he had been out of em
ployment and had been peevish and fretful
The last situation he filled was that of flag
man on the Biltimore and Ohio railroad
For several weeks his conduct is said to have
justified the suspicion of mental aberration
and all who knew him think that he must
have lost his mind. He was not in n;ed, and
left a bank book showing $800 deposited in
bank. He leaves a widow, and two daugh
ttrs by a former wile.
