The farmer locked at his cherry tree,

"I wish 1 could cheat tho robins," said tie;
'If somebody only would blow mo how I"
"I'll make a tcrrlblo scarecrow grim,
iMth threatening arms and with bristling
And up In tho treo I'll fasten him
To frighten them half to death," he said.
He fashioned n scarecrow tattered and torn
O, 'twas a horrlblo thing to sec!
And very early one summer morn,
Ho set It up ln Ids cherry tree,
Hio tlossomi wcro whtto as tho light sea foarn,
The beautiful treo was a lovely sight,
Hut tho.scarecrow Hood there s) much at homo
That tho birds flew fcrcamlng away ln fright.
But tho robins, watching him day after day,
1th beads on one sldo and eyes so bright,
Survelng tho monster, began to say,
"Vthy should this fellow our prospects blight?
"Ilo never moves round for llio roughest
lie's a harmless, comical, tough old fellow:
Let's all go Into the treo together,
For ho won't budge till the fruit Is mellowl"
So up they flews and tho sauciest pair
Mid the shady branches peerqd and perked,
Selected a spot with the utmost care,
And all day merrily sang and worked.
And whero do you think they built their nest?

Tho following is an abstract of Senator
Wallace's report presented to the Senate:
The testimony taken by the committee at
Providence discloses many discriminations
by the laws of Rhode Island, and tho prac
tices under them, against foreign born citi
zens of tho United States ami of Rhode Is
Naturalized citizens may own any amount
of property, and pay any amount of
taxes thereon, but they cannot vote unlets
possessed of a certain amount of real estate.
Foreign born citizens who were naturalized
and voted in Rhode Island long before the
War of the Rebellion, and who served the
United States and the State of Rhode Island,
in Rhodo Island regiments throughout the
war, nnd who have been shown to have lost
this real estate, have been deprived of tho
right to vote by that loss. The result has
been in Rhodo Island that very many resi
dent foreigners, not already made citizens cf
tho United Slates elsewhere, on going to
that Slate decline to becomo naturalized.
They decline to take up the burdens of citi
zenship without being permitted to enjoy Its
As a specimen case your committee refers
to that of Col. Jamea Moran, of Providence.
An ab-tract of his testimony is as follows :
"Lived here twenty-eight years; foreign
er; naturalized; entered service ol United
Slates from Rhode Island under promises
made by tho State officials that foreigners
who went into the service could vote when
they came back; commissioned as seoond
lieutenant; promoted to captaincy; served
three years; honorably discharged; held an
election for officials in Rhodo Island in his
enmpauy in tho army but could not vote
himself; was a voter once because ho owned
real estate; has lost it and cannot volo now;
been colonel In militia, nnd notary public;
majority of the operatives in llio mills are
f'oreigner: are changed about aud can't save
money to buy homes."
Although naturalized he cannot vote be
cause he docs not possess the real estate.
which Rhode Island laws mako it necessary
for a foreign born citizen to own.
A similar case is that of Colonel John M.
Duffy, who had been a resident of Provi
dence for twenty years. He entered the ser
v'ce of the United States in May, 1801, in
tho Second Rbode Island volunteers as a
private, being promoted, subsequently, to
sergeant, 2d lieutenant, aud 1st lieutenant
of that legiment. After some service in the
Second Rhodo Island volunteers, he was
honorably discharged to accept the commis
sion .in tho United Stales regular army as
1st lieutenant in tho Thirteenth infantry,
being breveted lieutenaut colonel for gal-
antry at the battle of Missionary Ridge.
He remained in the army until 1809, when
he was discharged lor disability, nnd receiv
ed a pension of $15 per month. Col. Duffy
acquired real estate after his return from
the army, aud upon bediming naturalized
was permitted to vote. Having lost his real
estate from the vicissitudes of fortune he has
lost the right to vote.
The case of Hon. Thomas Davis, formerly
a member of Congress from Rhode Island,
is given in tho following condensation of his
lertirnony i
"Live in Providence; foreigner; natu. all-
zed forly-fivo years ago; seventy five years
old; manufacturing jeweler; been in both
branches of the legislature a number of
times; member nf Congress from Rhodo Is
land In 1S53 -1; then owned real estate; I
am not now a qualified voter; I failed in bu
slness and the title oi my property passed to
my asslgnees,and I cannot now vote; colored
men now vote here like native born whiUs,
while every foreign born citizen is excluded
unless beoivni real estate; the effect of this
is bad; It makes the voter mercenary
wealth controls suffrage in RSode Island
money Is all-powerful here; It can overwhelm
public sentiment at any time here; have
beeii both a republican and a democrat, but
always advocated the repeal of this restric
Thomas JI'Murrouh. Naturalized; can
not vote; have no real estate; am president
of the Rhode Island suffrage association
presented a memorial praying for an exten
Ion of suffrage to foroign born citizens; fath
er lived in .Massachusetts a naturalized
citizen and a voter there; the line between
tbo Stales was changed and wo were thrown
into Rhode Island; we cannot vote now for
we own no land; at least 0,000 naturalized
citizens In the State who caunot vote.
Daniel Donovan, Naturalized; came from
Cunnectlcul; lived In the United States since
fivo yean old; am u skilled mechanic; ten
of us work together In one room In our fac
tory; the highest grado room In It; tlx of
the ten aro foreigners and cannot vote for
want of land; a house and lot to suit my
family would cost mo $3,000.
Inslancos are described In the testimony
whero naturalized citizens who wcro the
holders of rdal property have been disfran
chised because of tho condemnation of their
real property for city purposes. Iu tho caso
of the Ilrooke street condemnation for the
use of the city of Providence, thero wero
forty-three persons previously entitled to
volo who btcamo disfranchised under the law
when the tract was condemned for city uses.
In this case Ihuie men were denied the
prlvllego of voting before tho title to tho
properly passed out of them to the city, and

Repeated efforts hnve been made to secure
the alteration of the constitution of Rhode
Island In regard to property qualifications
for foroign boru citizens, but they hava al
ways been defeated. Special instances wero
shun n where state senators and representa
tives have voted lo submit the question of
the extension ofjsuffragt to the voto of the
people, mid then have done everything In
their power at the polls to defeat it. In tho
case of the submission of the question of the
extension of suffrago to soldiers and sailors
who had served in Rhode Island regiments
during tho war, submitted during tho prcsi
denlial canvass of 1870, the testimony shows
that it was made a party question at the
Wltucses testify that a minority of her
people has ruled Rhode Island for more than
fifteen years past, and the opposition to tho
extension of suffrage came maiuly from
those now in power, who fear the loss of
place that would follow.
Your committee believe that there aro
good grounds for the complalits made, that
the government of Rhode Island, under lis
present constitution, is nearer an oligarchy
than a democracy. Thedisfranchisecent of
so large a percentage of her people , by sys-
tuatic effort and rigidly euforced statutes,
the small number of votes cast for president
at a hotly contested election, the small num
ber of votes cast for members of Congress In
four successive elections, when contrasted
with tho number cast iu other states at the
same elections, tho choice of members of
congress, governors and presidents by the
oles of one out of every twenty of tho peo
ple, whilst other states cast one out of every
five of theirs, tho maintenance of the rule of
three fifths for the amendment of the consti
tion, by which tho will of the majority has
been twice defeated, nil compel us to recog
iza Rhodelsland as different in her govern
ment, her institutions and her policy from
all her sister commonwealths in the Union,
and lead us to grasp at any provision of tho
federal constitution which, fairly construed,
ill grant us power to enforce, for her peo
le, "a republican form of government,"
by which we mean a government by tho
hole people, for the whole people of the
It was urged upon your committee with
great learning and logic, that these provis
ions of the constitution and laws, with the
practico under them were in effect an oligar
chical government, and not ono of a republ
ican form, and that under article -1, section
, of Ihe constitution of the United States, it
as tho duty of cougrcss to so legislate, as
to compel a change in the rule of suffrage
by the stale, which would cause its people
to hnvo equal privileges with those of other
It is undoubtedly true, that this authority
iveu to tho federal government supposes
and recognizes a pre-existing government of
the form which is to be guaranteed, and the
form must be substantially republican. A
state cannot change a republican for an ar
tocratic or monarchial form of govern.
ment, but it may substitute another republi
can form for that which existed at its ad
mission to tho Union, and the clause of
uaranly by (he United States, is applicable
to the latter as it was to the former. As the
charter stood when Rhodo Island entered the
Union, noono could bea voter without own
ng real estate or being the eldest Bon of
uch a real estato owner. This rule applied
equally to native and foreign born citizens,
Ily her constitution of 1812, she has enlarg
ed tho right as to native citizens, and re
fricted it as to Ihose of foreign birth. The
change is one which gives rise to inequality
n tho exercise of tho right as between th
iflerent classes of citizens, but widens the
field iu its general scope. The practice un
der tho added right, in the opinion of your
committee, is vicious and demoralizing, and
thu discrimination against foreign born citi
zens is anti-republican ic Us character, but
the form 'of the government of Rhode Is
land is still republican, and cannot be inter
fered with by ua. The whole question is
ono of the right nnd power of the state to
regulato the rule of suffrage, as it affects
presidential electors and members of Con
gress. Ibis power and right under the con-
tltution of the United States is witli the
states and not under tho control of Con
gress. The federal system bases its very
existence upon the rights of the states to
regulate the rule of suffrage.
The existence of the federal government
lepends upon tho existence of the state gov
ernments. W ithout existence in their en
tirety it absolutely falls luto chaos. It can
not continue Itself for r.u hour. There are
three great parts of the federal government
the legislative, tho executive, and the ju
dicial. Ihe legislative has two branches
the house and the senate. There can be no
house of representatives of the United
States after the state governments have end
ed. The government of tho states must ex
ist or tho popular branch of Congress fails to
exist. This :s as certain as it is that there
is a constitution of the United States. In
the constitution of the United States tho
regulation asto suffrage Is In these words
"The house of representatives shall bo
composed of members chosen every second
year by the people of the several states, and
the electors in each Slate shall have the quali
fications requisite for electors of the most nu
merous branch of the State legislature."
The electors for tho house of representa
tives of tho United States are those who are
qualified electors for the legislatures of tho
atates. Qualified how? Qualified by whom?
Qualified by iho federal government? No
but qualified by the states. Tho electors lor
members uf the legislature of the states
aro the electors nf the Houso of represeuta
tlves, and they are to be be qualified by an
under the constitution of the states. If you
have no qualification of electors for th
members of Ihe legislature of the
have under the constitution no criterion to
detertnlno who aro to bo electors for mem
bers of Congress. There Is no ineasuro of
qualification, except as It' Is found In the
clause quoted, which provides that tho elect
ors tor members for the United States House
of representatives aro the electors of tho
state who are qualified by state constitutions
and state laws to nolo for members of the
legislature, If thero be none of these, there
can be nono tor members ol the lederai
house, and it logically follows that the exis
tence of state legislature is vital to tho ex
istence of that branch of the federal govern
ment, for In their absence you have no cri
terion, no qualification under the constitu
tion itself. Do we presume to exercise that
power here? Do we Bssert that we can grap
that power and regulate by a federal statute
tho qualification of voters? If wo do, wo
mako a consolidated government out of a
democratic republic. The members of the
senate of the United Slates are chosen by the
legislatures of the stat:s. Article 1, section
The senate of the United States shall bo
composed of two senators from each state,
thoscn by the legislature thereof.
If there is no legislature thero are m
senators. If thero are no state electors
qualified bv statu constitutions or state laws
there are no state IcgiJatures. Thus it all
depends finally ou state qualifications of elec
tors. Thus wo have bolh the federal houso
of representatives and the federal senate de
pendent upon tho qualifications of electors
by the slate; qualifications created by Blate
constitutions and state laws. Tho states
themselves in their constitutions fix the
qualifications of voteis. They are thus an
element, an indlspenslble element, in the
constitution and perpetuity of the federal
Thus we find the electors of tho stato fill
the house of representatives, and the atates
through their legislatures fill the senate of
tho United Statci, all power proceeding orig
inally from the electors of the states, quall-
fied by state constitutions and state laws."
These form the very hasis of the organiza
tion of this body and of the federal houe of
representatives. Without them the govern
ment of the United States utterly and "bv
Intely falls. Under th constitution of the
United States we must return for ultimate
power to the qualification of electors in the
states, with qualifications regulated and
controlled by the states, of else these bodies
ceae to exist.
The constitution, iu article 27 section 1,
clause 2, provide?:
Fach state shall appoint in such manner as
the legislature thereof mug direct, a number
of electors equal to tho whole number of
senators and representatives to which the
state may be entitled In the Congrem.
These electors choose tho President aud
Vice President of tho United Stales. If
there be no state legislatures there can bo
no presidential tlectors. The electors of the
state legislatures are created and qualified,
by and under stato constitutions and state
laws. The voters or electors in the states
are the same men who choose the members
of the state legislatures, and if you have no
state legislatures, then inevitably the power
to create electors of the President of the
United States must fail. Thus you have the
senate and the house and the executive
department all absolutely failing nnd break
ing down for want nf the state governments.
Hut this is not all. The judiciary depart
ment of this government stands upon the ex
istence of llio executive and the senate. If
the senate fall through the want of voters
to create members of the state legislatures,
and if tho executive authority fails for tho
want of tho power to create and qualify vo
ters, then we have neither executive nor sen
ate to creato judges of the United States.
Thus we. have evtry branch of the federal
government, house, senate, the executive
and judiciary depailments, standing upon
tho state govemmot ts, and all resting final
ly upon the people of the states, qualified
as voters and state constitutions and state
laws. We now seo that tho state gov
ernmcnts are vital to the existence of ev
ery brancli of the ftderal government, and
that the voters of tho stntes'are essential lo
the vitality of every branch of the federal
government. They car not be interfered
with by federal power. The Supreme court
of tho United States has expressly decided
that suffrage under stato control, and so far
as it can be settled it is judicially sett'ed.
Tho clear teaching of every part of our
system forbids us to interfere or seek to med
e with the power of the stato upon this
most yital of all hrrrights, as we seo that
the people of the states, qualified bg the laws
f the slatei, are the voters of the federal
government, we cannot nnd dare not enter
tain the thought suggested by those who su
r in Rhode Island. Their remedy lies in
another field.
There is, therefore, nothing In these pro
vision! of (he constitution and laws of
Rhode Island which, iu the opinion of your
committee, are in conflict with theconstitu
tion of the United States, for tho regulation
f its rule of suffrage is a subject for each
stale to determine for itself; but your com
mittee do not deem it a waste nf time to
point out the great discrepancy that exists
mong the several stales as to the exercise
f suffrage by foreign born citizens, nor lo
call attention to the fact that Rhode Island
s the only state in the Union In which na
tives and foreign born citizens stand upon
different grounds as to the stato qualifica
tions for tl.e ri jht of suffrage.

Carolina, one year; Tennessee, ono yeat;
Vermont and Virginia, one year; and West
Virginia, one year in the state. Tho same
residence is required In theso twenty-one
states of Ihe native born citizens.
In these states residence Is superadded by'
stato authority as a qualification to voting
for all officers, state ai well as federal. In
Massachusetts, two years; In Pennsylvania,
thirty days, and In New York ten days are
added by the state authority to the qualifi
cation of five years; and In Rhode Island
ownership of real estate must bi in tho natu
ralize foreigner before ho Is a voter.
These differences are founded in tho poli
cy ctf the respective states, but there Is nn
one of thepi lns which payment of taxes,
length of residence or educational qualifica
tions are not Imposed aliko upon the native
nnd tho foreign born citizen, save the case of
Rhode Island anl lis property qualifica
tions. The vice of its system nnd the wrong to
the general welfare, consists In its inequality
in Its deliberate disfranchisement of for
eign born citizens by n rulo which permits
so gross a discrimination as is demonstrated
by the proof taken by your committee.

Saysjho Lcadvllle (Colorado) Chronicle:
A short distance from Buena Vista is a cavo
in labited by spiders which differ from other ' .
spiders in their enormous size, and are quite
useful to the needy people of that region. ' .
The caye was discovered last December by a
parly of sightseer., and the spiders and their i
work were witnessed. On eutering the cave
one Is struck by the funny looking webs. 1
they are workeJ like other webs of spider',
but every fibre is ten times as large as the
ones woven by nrdluary spiders. On pass
ing further into the cavo the spiders are
encountered They nro about the size of
small birds, ami make a strange sound while
weaving their web. Their webs are so
tough and the fib'rsso large that itisalmnst
mpossibility to break down a web. Some
weeks ago while fookiug at a cave, a miner
got to examining the webs. Their strands
were about the size of a No. 12 thread, and
bethought they could bo used for tbrejd.
Having a needle in his poesion, lo broke
off o-ia of the strands and found that it fit-
ted the needle. Se wing on a loose buttou lo
test the efficacy, he found it as strong as
silk thread, and it answered his every pur
pose. Since then ihe people have flocked
in and carried away hosts of the webs, but
the spiders do not seem to object in the
least. There is some talk among the capit
alists of starling a thread factory there aud
using the webs for thread.
