The committee on civil servico relorm l
the House yesterday adopted and will booh
report one of tho most important bills ol
the session. The idea of the bill is to give
aDy one having or thinking he has a claim
against the government a chance to have iu
merits tested judicially. He may go with
it to the court of claims, and he or the gov
ernment may appeal to the Supremo Couri
of the United States. No amount claimed,
however, shall be paid, unless, after the ac
tion of the court, Congress shall approvi
that action. This bill, if made a law, will
protect the government, givo satisfaction to
the claimants, and settle one of tho vexed
questions of the day. As presented by Mr.
O'Connor, of South Carolina, the bill may
need amendment income particular, but
the principle is right and the bill will prob
ably, in due time, bo passed. It is of in
terest to hundreds of people from Maine to
California. No claims barred by the stat
ute of limitations can bo presented under
provisions of the bill.
The Democratic Committee did well yts
terday in selecting Cincinnati as its place of
meeting. ' It did not quite come up to th
requirements of the occasion iu the matWr
of time, as an earlier day in June would
have been, I think, to the advantage ol the
party. But that is a minor error. To se
lect a place was the important matter.
The city chosen is free from the objections
to be urged against New York, Washiugton.
St. Louis, or Chicago. As to candidates it
has absolutely no significance. It was not
chosen for tho benefit of Tildcn, Seymour,
Thurman, Hendricks, Hancock, Palmer or
any of the others whose claims are urged.
There will be reported tu tho House this
week a bill appropriating J300.000 for the
relief of people in Ireland who are suffering
for the want of food, It is probable that
tli 6 originators of tho measure meant well
in introducing it, and the committee iu
agreeing to it. I suppose the House will
pass it, but the Senate will probably take
the sensiblo view that the whole matter had

The government is calling in its bonds
bearing over t per cent, interest, and issuing
now bonds at a lower irate. Many counties
and cities are doing the same thing. Colum
bia county has a large amount of outstand
ing bonds which bear C per cent, interest.
At the time when they were issued money
was scarce and it was difficult to put them
out at a lower rate. Now, that the hard times
are nearly over funds are plenty, and there
is no doubt that many people, having capital
to invest would be willing to take our bonds
at a lower rate. Government -1 per cents,
are at a premium, and many municipal
bonds are in demand at the same rate
Would it not be a wise thing for our coun

raising money to pay his expenses. He will
be the eleventh inau tried for murder in this

If tbeso were no more than remote possi

It is true that this presupposes a people

If history does not teach this, we have
read it all wrong. In the republics of an
cient and modern times the chief magistrate
was entrusted with only temporary power,
and always went out of ofllce at the end of
a short period, fixed and prescribed by law
or custom. It was this, indeed, which made
tho substantial distinction between them
and tho monarchies around them. An un
punished transgression of the customary
limitation was uniformly followed by de
struction. Everywhere and always it was
the fatal symptom of decay the sure fore
runner of ruin. When Cnssar refused to lay
down his consulship as his predecessors had
done, at the end ot a year, and was re-elect
ed time after time with the acquiescense of
the Senate and the people, all that was real
in Roman freedom ceased to exist. Two
republics In France were brought to an end
in tho samo way. Napoleon began by being
Consul for a term, then was elected for life,
and finally became Emperor, with the pow
ers of an absolute despot. The last Bona
parte was President for four years,, was re
elected lor ten, and ended, like his uncle, in
grasping the imperial crown.
".May this be washed in the Lethe and

Shall the lamp which guided our forefathers

A third term for Grant does not mean a

that he chooses to demand. The imperial

The figuro of Grant standing with the
seal of primacy on the mountain top and
looking down on the inhabitants of the plain
below, gives a measure of tho elevation
which his sycophants flatter him with the
hopo of attaining. They urge the necessity
of a strong government almost in the very
words used by the adherents of Csesar
and the two Napoleons. Strong government,
in their sense, means weak laws and a strong
ruler; in other words, a substantial monar
chy, powerful in its scorn of all legal re
straints. JudyeJerc lllack in Xorth Ameri

Savin; a Woman from the Gallon s.
There has been general interest through
out this state in the case of Mrs. Catharino
ell of Carlisle, sentenced to be hanged for
the alleged fatal poisoning of Mrs, Mary
Kiehl, 82 years old, who died last May iu a
little house iu the outskirts of Carlisle.
There was a dispute over a few hundred
dollars left by her, a man named Wyukoop
claiming that she had verbally willed it to
to him. It being lumored that she had
died from poison, the body was exhumed
and a post mortem made. Suspicion point'
ed to Mrs. ltecd, a near relative of the Dis
trict Attorney of tho county (Cumberland).
Mrs. ell and Wynkoop. The Coroner's lu
quest resulted in the arrest of tho two latter.
Mrs. Heed testified that three days before
Mrs. Kiehl died she and Mrs. ell break
fasted with her and drank some collie made
by Mrs. Zsll, and that after drinking tho
coffee the witness and Mrs, Kiehl were at
tacked with severe vomiting.
Tho physician who had made the post
mortem, although admitting that death
might have resvlted from one of many nat
ural causes, expressed the opinion as an ex
pert that if the analysis of the stomach
showed the existence of arsenic, there was
good ground for believing death to have re
sulted from arsenical poisoning, The anal
ysis had been made by a young druggist of
little experience who could not tell how
much or how little arsenic there was, but the
traces of the poison was undoubted,
Several highly respectable witnesses tes
tified that Mrs. lteeder's reputation for ve
racity was so bad that they would not be
lieve her under oath, The defenco showed
that the deceased woman had threatened to
tako her own life, aud that Mrs, ell could
not have been In complicity with Wynkoop,
because just after Mrs, Kiehl's death, she
gavo testimony in opposition to Wynkoop'
claim. It was also shown that Mrs. ell
could have had no motive for the deed.
Judge Herman, a young lawyer of ability,
but inexperienced In criminal cases, charged
the jury very briefly, leaving the case to
them. Tho defence had bceu so aura of ac
quittal that they took few exceptions.
When the appeal to the Supreme Court
was made, meetings of ladles and gentle
men were held In several cltlfs for
the purpose of giving active assistance to
Mrs. Zell's counsel. The latter, In arguing
before tho higher tribunal, declared that
Judge Herman had misled the jury by mis
quoting the testimony of several witnesses
In such a manner as to vitlato the whole

of the jury had Used an unlawful In

far as to threaten to report to the court n

Democratic St;itesm;i usli .
it Is a fact which not even Republican
journals will have the hardihood to dispute
that the Democratic party since It has had
control of Congress has relieved the country
of a large portion of its burden iu the shape
of interest on the bonded debt. While the
Republicans were In tho majority In the two
Houses of Cnugtess, the rate ol Interest paid
by tho government was uniformly six per
cent, No effort was made lo refund the
U, S, bonds at a lower rato until the Dem
ocrats obtained c intrul of the Hoii"e of Rep
resentatives. No preparation for a reduc
tion of the rate of interest was made by the
republicans. It remained for the Democrats
to take the initiative iu the matter, to pro
pose, mature, and carry through Congress
the measures which linvo resulted iu saving
to the government annually millions of dol
lars. To this work of reducing the rale of
Interest on tho bonded indebtedness of the
Unhid States Democratic statesiiianshl)
addressed itself with a patriotic zeal which
must command the applause of men uf all
parties. Hut there is yet more to b tc-
compllshed in this regard. The Represent
atives of the Democratic party iu Congress
believe that a portion of the bonded debt can
be placed at a still lower rato of interest
than th lowest now paid by the Jgoverrt-
ment. Hence it is proposed that the bonds
next to be refuuded shall bear !i per cent.
interest. It is confidently believed that a
bond bearing this low rate of Interest can be
sold at par. This Democratic effort to rt
duco the rale of interest on government
bonds is simply a fulfillment of tho pledge
made to the people in the Democratic plat
form ot 1S7II Another feature of the finan
cial policy of the Democratic party is tcon
oiny in uppinpriations uf the public moneys.
This was also promised by the Democracy
in their last National platform. At least
hundred millions of dollars have been saved
by the threo Democratic Congresses since
1870, as is shown by a comparison of tho or
diuary expenses of the Government during
tho last fin r years with the same during the
four years next preceding the recovery if
the House of Representatives by .the Demo
crats. Tim great service rendered the couii'
try by the Democratic party since its resto
ration to power in Congress is thus made
manifest. The grievous load of taxation
which so long oppressed tho life of the peo
pie has been gradually but surely alleviated.
Labor takes heat t again and cipital seeks
new employments. Prosperity smiles where
but lately the voice oi want uttered the cry
of 'despair. This glad change has come
with the advent of Democratic power in
the tio Houses of Congress. It did not
come whilu the shadow of radicalism yet

The Coming Comet'
The Astronomer Royal of Eugland in
forms the Washington astronomers that a
comet ha been seen from the observatory
at Capetown, South Africa. The question
naturally arises whether this is the great
comet whose appearance was announced by
Dr. Gould of the Cordoba observatory in
South America about a week ago. The fact
that Cordoba and Capetown are both iu the
Southern hemisphere and in nearly the
same latitude, is an argument in favor of
that supposition ; but, on the other hand,
there seems to be an irreconcilable variance
iu the accounts of tho comet's motions,
Dr. Gould described his comet as moving
northward, while Gill, the South African
observer, reports that the comet he sees is
moving southward. Neither of thee com
et, if there ba two, has yet been seen from
any of our observatories. Wo are yet ig
norant whether the coming comet is merely
telescopic, like that of last year, or one of
thoe stupendous naked-eye fellows that iu
the ages of superstition was dreaded as por
tending great wars. This belief in the bel
licose significance of comets is not yet ex
tinguished. Probably the majority of un
educated persons regarded the comet of 1S11
as a forerunner of the war of 1812 in this
country, and of tne thre tremendous dos
ing struggles by which Europe finally shook
off the grip of Napoleon. Tho great comet
of 1 S 13 was near enough to the Mexican
war to be regarded by the superstitious as
a celestial prognostication; and who does
not remember how direful appeaiod tho un
paralleled comet of 1S5S, in the days when
the po-sibilily of civil war wai on tviry
tongui? Thecometof 1801, nearly as huge
as its predecessor, seemed, to the supersti
tious, a second sign of the great Iratricidal
struggle. So the comet of 1875 did not fail
to find believers who connected with it the
rumblings of coming war in the East, and
when, two or three years later, Russia's
army marched upon Constantinople, such
believers were assured that tho prophecy of
the comet had come true. This superstition
will probably always linger In the human
mind, and should the comet that is now vis
ible in the southern heavens sweep Into its
perihelion passage around the sun with a
train of light stretching halfway across the
sky, there will not be persons wanting to
point at the now augmenting armaments of
the great powers of Europe, and to predict
a Bpeedy clash of arms. In this they will
have the support of the astrologers. In an
astrological almanac published in London,
and of great authority among its patrons,
there is a pictorial prophecy for the year
1880, in which a helmeted woman armed
with a sword, domiuate over a field filled
with tramping armies. The publisher pru
dently postpones tho letterpress explanation
of this formidable picture to next year's
