THE EIVEB AND HARBOR BILL
President Arthur has just dono tho
most commendable act of his adminis
tration in vetoing tho River and Har
bor bill. This bill appropriated a largo
amount of money ostensibly for tho
purpose of improving tho rivers and
harbors, but really to provide money to
keep the Republican party in power.
iho voico ot tho press and tho peoplo
was so strongly against it that tho Pres
ident could not do otherwise than veto
Tho following is tho full text of the
'To the Jlouse of Jlepresenlutiocs:
Having watched with much interest tho
progress of house bill No. G242,entitled
"an act making appropriations for tho
construction, repair and preservation of
certain works on rivers and harbors, and
for other purposes," and having sinco it
was rt ceived carefully examined it, after
mature consideration I am constrained
to return it herewith Co the housoof rep
resentatives, in which it originated,
without my signature and with my ob.
jections to its passage. Many of the ap
propriations in tho bill are clearly for
tho general welfare and most beneficial
in their character. Two of tho objects
for which provision is mado were by mo
considered so important that I felt it
my duty to direct to them thonltentlon
of congress. In my annual messago in
December last I urged vital iniportanco
of legislation for tho reclamation of
marshes and for the the establishment
of harbor lines along tho Potomac front.
In April last, by special message, I
recommended an appropriation for tho
improvement of tho Mississippi river.
It is not necessary that I should say
that when my signature would make
tho bill appropriating for these and
other valuable national objects a law,
it is with great reluctanco and only
under a senso of duty that I withhold
it. My principal objection to the bill
is that it contains appropriations for
purposes not for tho common
defenso or general welfare and
which do not promote commerce
among the states. Those provisions in
controversy aro entirely for tho benefit of
particular localities in whioh It is pro
posed to maico improvements, i regard
such appropriation of the publio monoy
ns beyond tho power given by tho con
stitution to congress and tho President.
I feel more bound to withhold my slg.
nature from tho bill becauso of tho pe
culiar evils whiaJi manifestly result from
thlslnfraction of tho constitution. Ap
propriations of this nature to bo devot
ed purely to local obieots totid to in
crtaso in number and in amount. As
tho citizens of ono state find that monoy
to raise whioh thoy, in common with
tho whole country, aro taxed, is to be
oxpended for local improvements in
another state, thoy demand similar bene
fits for themselves. It Is not unnatural
that they should seek to indemnify
themselves for such uso of publio funds

his result invariably nnd unneccssaii
' follows a neglect to observo tho con
stitutional limitations imposed upon tho
law making power.
Tho appropriations for river nnd har
bor impiovements have, under influences
to which 1 have alluded, increased year
by year out of proportion to tho pro
gress of tho country, great as that has
been. In 1870 tho nggregato appropri
ation was $3,975,000. In 1875, $0,G18,
517.50. In 1880, 8,970,500, and in
1881, 811,151,800, whilo by tho present
act there is appropriated 18,7-13,875.
Whilo feelinir overv disposition to leavo
to tho legislature tho responsibility of
determining what amount should be
appropriated for the purposes of the bill,
so long ns appropriations aro confined
to objects indicated by thu grant of
power, i caniioi escape mu conclusion
that as a part of the law making power
of tho government tho duty devolves
upon mo to withhold my signajuro
lrom tho bin containing appropriations
which in my opinion greatly exceed in
amount tho needs of tho country for
tho present fiscal year, it being tho
usage to provido money for these pur
poses by annual appropriation bins.

expend so Iaigc an amount of money
within so brief a period that tho ex

expenditure of publio money is an evil
not to bo measured by tho valuo of that
money. Tho peoplo who aro taxed for
it sustain greater injury in tho demoral
izing ellect produced upon those who

all the ramifications of the government
Theso objections could be removed and
every constitutional purpose readily ob
tained should congress enact that one-
half only of tho aggregate amount pro

expenditure during tho fiscal year and
that tho sum so appropriated bo ex

bill for that purpose I feel authorized
to iuak this suggestion because of the
duty imposed upon the J. resident by
tho constitution to' recommend to tho
consideration of congress such measures
as he shall judge necessary and exped
ient, and because it is my earnest desire
that tho public works which arc in pro
gress shall suffer no injury. Congress
will also convene again in tour months
when this whole subject will bo open
for their consideration.

Black on Jefferson.
The following letter from Hon.
Chauncey F. Black, democratic candi
date for Lieutenant Governor, to B. M.
Nead, Esq., corresponding secretary of
tho Jefferson Association of Ilarrisburg,
speaks for itself and will be read with
delight by all who hope for tho restora
tion of Jeffersonian principles :
York, July 20. My Dear Sir:
Nothing could havo given mo greater
pleasure than tho receipt of your kind
communication of tho 12th iust., in
forming mo of my unanimous election
to honorary membership in the Jeffer
son Association ol Harrisburg. I ac
cept the compliment with a lively and
grateful senso of its true value, and I
shall endeavor to make my name
worthy of its place on your roll by con
tinuance in those humble but earnest
efforts in tho great cause you are or
ganized to promote which havo djubt
less procured mo this unexpected hon
or. When the federalists in the closing
years of tho last century had well nigh
revolutionized the government estab
lished by the constitution, transcending
its most important limitations nnd in
vading many of the fields of power ex
pressly reserved from its operation,
their dislodgement became necessary
to tho preservation of tho Republic.
That, like tho present, was a most une
qual struggle between power, patron
age, money and monopoly on tho one
side and the masses of working people
on tho other. The latter must havo
gono down and all that they contended
for must havo been lost in one prodi
gious disaster but for tho character of
their organization and leadership. These
were wisely adapted to tho nature of
tho conllict. Jefferson, Madison, our
own Gallatin, and their devoted com
patriots woro not content with, merely
sounding the alarm. They called the
peoplo together in their primary capac
ity, and urged them to organize in close
nnd permanent associations like thu
popular committees of the revolution,
were they might tako council ono with
another respecting tho public dangers
and tho means of defence There were
tho "Democratic Societies" which filled
the federalists with terror by their bold
agitations, and which it was onco act
ually proposed to put down by tho
strong hand under a statuto to be
passed for tho purpose. The first ono
established in Pennsylvania was formed
in Philadelphia in 1793, with David
Rittenhouso president and a list of
other officers, somo of whoso names
aro only less illustrious than his. The
democratic societies were, as Mr. Jeff
erson said, tho "nurseries of the Rq.
publican principles of tho constitution,"
nnd to them, with tho widespread in
fhienco of their discussions and publi
cations, and tho "rousing of tho peo.
plo" by frequent meetings in Binall
bodies, where every man had a voice,
was due, in no small degrco, tho great
deliveranco of 1800 and tho dofeat of
tho infamous scheme to oxcludo Mr.
Jefferson from tho olllco to which ho
had been elected, ns Mr. Tilden was
oxcluded in 1877.
Tho Democratic societies of our day
are called Jefferson Associations, not
merely in veneration of tho personal
character of tho great apostle of Amer
ican liberty, but to indicate our dovo
tioii to tho body of political principles
which is justly known by tho nanio of
him who formulated them in matchless
simplicity nnd illustrated them practic
ally and personally in those two ad
ministrations of tho government
which all men ngrco ushered In the
"Golden ago of tho Republic," The
namo of Jefferson stands, not for a
man only, but for a faith, not merely
for tho rovored shado of tho leader,
whoso famo is conscorato wherever tho
,lnugungo of freedom is known, but for
doctnuo ns certainly and as abso
lutely essential to political salvation
as any for which mon over fought

hist, John Adams, but tho last words
of tho lnttcr were: "Jefferson still
lives," and they wore true. Ho lives
in Ida deathless work, in his teachings
nnd in his influence, nnd when ho
censes to live, tho republic itself will
havo ceased to be. When Mr. Adams
died tho failure of federalism and tho
triumph of democracy seemed both
complete. But If nny man imagined
that theso conditions havo been re
versed, nnd that tho "strong govern
ment," for which tho federalists have
contended from Hamilton nnd Adams,
to Grant and Arthur, has finally dis
placed the Republican government of
enumerated and limited powers, let
him remember the federalist exultation
which went before tho mighty fall of
1800. Tho principles of Jefferson aro
dear to every honest republican henrt ;
thero never was a moment since the
adoption of tho constitution, when, if
put fairly at issue, thoy would not havo
received tho unreserved approbation of
a vast majority of tho American peo
ple. Jefferson Is not dead. lie will
be dead only when wo ourselves or our
less fortunato children nro dead in po
litical slavery, that Is to say, when the
independent Comnionwealths which
took their places among tho nations of
the earth upon Jefferson's immortal
declaration and were again rescued by
him from a worse peril in 1800, shall
have been crushed in the coils of a cor
rupt centralization, and tho last vestige
of local self-government shall have
been swept away. But until then let
no honest Democrat listen to the shal
low and pitiful taunt that Thomas Jef
ferson is dead. The words can havo
no meaning, unless it be implied that
tho principles of home rule and pure
government which he so nobly main
tained in life were entombed with tho
dust of tho good right hnud which
traced tho Declaration of Independence
and tho golden truths of his first in
augural. And if that bo true, or seem
ingly truo in tho eyes of tho compla
cent federalist gloating over needless
millions snatched from tho hands of pa
tient labor and distributed among fa
vored classes enjoying unduo privileges
or lavished on objects not distinctly do
lined by tho Constitution, then it is
high time for the resurrection. Tho
sober judgment of the peoplo is again
invoked upon a situation far graver
than that of 1800, when Jefferson
fought in tho llesh. Can any reason
able man doubt tho result? The huge
aggregation of special interests, nrtfli
cially fostered by our later legislation,
combined under the name of tho repub
lican party, and administering tho gov
ernment for tho benefit of the few in
utter disregard of tho rights and needs
of the cruelly plundered and heavily
burdened many, is visibly rotting asun
der and falling away Into helpless frag
ments. The hour of our second do
livcranco from the Bourbon federalist,
tho boss, the spoils system, the monop
olist and tho corrupt ring, with the
centralization in which all have their
beginning and their being, draws near.
To this most desirablo end ' nothing
can contribute more directly or more
powerfully than tho establishment of
Jefferson associations in every quarto:
It is the method of Jefferson himself,
and I hope to seo the great party of
tho common people, delraudcd m 1870,
make itself ready for tho final conflict
before it by tho formation within its
ranks of thousands of these democrat
ic societies or Jefferson associations,
which being closely affiliated and in
intimate correspondence with each
other, would keep tho democratic party
democratic nnd put it in a posture to
meet another electoral conspiracy like
that of 1870-7 as our forefathers met
that of 1800-1. Meanwhile I am,
very truly, yours, etc.,

Publish the Pension Roll.
Tho surprising fact has lately come
to light that the list of pensioners of
the United Stales has never been print
ed, and a motion for its publication has
actually been opposed in tho Senate on
tho extraordinary ground that deserving
soldiers should not be subjected to the
"mortification" of having their names
published as pensioners. It is hard to
believe that anyono could think it a
disgrace to receive a pension for honor
able services. On the contrary, it should
bo esteemed, as it always has been es
teemed, an honor, and tlio only persons
who would possibly bo "mortified" at
seeing their names on tho pension list
would bo thoso who never havo dono
anything to entitle them to such a re
ward. This is one reason why tho list ought
to be printed, and possibly ono reason,
also, why it has not been printed. It
would lead to tho detection of fraud.
Tho pension list has now beeu swollen
to the enormous total of ono hundred
millions, and even under tho very liber
al provisions of Congress it is impossi
ble that all this money is disbursed to
thoso only who are entitled to it. In
deed, it is notorious that thousands of
people arc drawing pensions upon man
ufactured claims, while others who did
leceivo disabling injuries in the service
aro getting nothing. Tho publication
and proper distribution of tlio roll of
pensioners would stop all this.
Tho pension roll should bo a roll of
honor. It should bo carefully compiled
and printed and copies of the list for
each Stato should bo placed on file ut
every Stato capital, and tho list for each
county inthoofficoof thocounty courts,
so that they should bo accessible for
publio examination. In this way repe
titions, impersonations and illegal
claims of every kind would bo detected,
tho impostoi-H exposed nnd tho names
of heroio soldiers who suffered for their
country and havo received tho country's
grateful aokn'owlengniont in return,
would bo preserved to fame. By all
means let tho list bo printed. J'iila.
