Mrs .Tamo K. Polk, widow of Pro -sldont
Polk, celebrated hor 80th anni -vorsnfy
lat week, at Nashville, Ton
U is apparent now which party has
prolonged tho session of tho legislature
in ortlor to draw tho $10 a day. As
soon as tho pay is cat off tho republi.
can sonato refuses to legislate, and will
meet only two days in tho week.
Now that the pay of tho legislature
has ceased, tho Philadelphia J'resa and
lximea ought to tell tho people how
much the extra session has cost up to
date. This is an important matter
which thoy f,eem to baro overlooked.
It is tho universal judgment of tho
public press that tho party whioh stands
in tho way of fair apportionment bills
is not only responsible for tho extra
session of tho Legislature, but is like
wise blamablo for tho unnecessary
length to which the session has been
drawn out The constitution, both in
spirit and letter, requires a reapportion
ment of the stato into senatorial and
legislative distriota at tho first session
of tho Legislature succeeding each
decennial census. Failure to perform
this dnty violates tho letter of tho orga
niolaw, as expressed in section 18,
article 2, of that instrument Tho
spirit of the constitution, whioh guar
antees equality in representation, ac
cording to population, is equally out
raged by tho failure to pass bills. The
industrial growth and increase in
population of some districts entitle
their people to a proportionate increaso
in representation, and tho failure to ac
cord them tho advantages of their own
industrial development, is as unjust as
to refuse the protection in person and
property that laws promise.
This being tho case, tho only ques
tion that remains to be determined is,
which party has failed of its duty T
The Legislature is equally divided, one
House being Republican and the other
Democratic. If they had been alike
earnest in the desire to comply with
the constitution, bills looking to that
end would havo been introduced in
each and pressed to passage, thus giv
ing ample timo during tho regular ses
sion to come to an agreement through
the medium of conference committees.
Tho same spirit would havo served si
milarly to secure tho passage of fair
bills. Tho representation of each
party knew full well that it would bo
impossible to force upon the other
measures that were manifestly unfair.
The Senate, with its Republican ma
jority, served as a check to restrain tho
partizan tendencies of the Democratic
house, and vice versa. Tho governor
held in tho veto power a wholesome
restraint on both tho Houses, whore
constitutional infractions were involved.
Thus there was no opportunity for ex
cesses in any direction, and an earnest
desire to pass apportionment bills would
have led both parties in the plain path
What do tho records show in these
matters T Tho Senate offered no bill of
apportionment until after ouo hundred
days of the regular session had been
wasted. Adjourning regularly threo
days of each week for the want, as was
alleged, of work to occupy tho time,
tho senators made no effort to perform
the duty which the constitution imposes
in mandatory language, until a bill, re
tarded by every device of parliamen
tary tactics, was completed in tho
House, buried a month subscquently'in
the committee of tho Senate, and then
look its place to be buffettod about
And delayed in its progress bo that tho
close of the session would find it im
perfect and incomplete. Tho Republi
can patty leaders had boasted in the
beginning that there would be no ap
portionment, and this dilatorincss is
substantial evidence that thoy wcro
determined to carry out tno boast in
a body of comparatively small mem
bership, a fair bill ought to have been
read in place, referred to committee,
reported therefrom, and regularly press
ed to final passage within thirty days
from the beginning of tho session,
while in fact, fully fivo months elapsed
beforo any bill reached thatstago of per
fection, and those that wcro permitted
to go through woro so obviously unfair
and partisan that tlio concurrence In
them would havo been a stultification
to the members of thu coordinate
In tho political complexion ol tho
bill, the Republican Senato was as un
fair as it was tardy. By tho voto of tho
two parties in tho last presidential elec
tion, to borrow tho language of Repre
sentative Lowrio a Rcpublioan, tho
Democrats aro entitled to 13 districts
and a fraction, and tho Republicans to
14 and a fraction. Tho bill which
was framod, pressed and passed, give
both fractions to tho Republicans and
allowed them fifteen districts against
thirteen. This, Mr. Lowrio by impli
cation, admits was tuoro than fair it
was generous. Hut how was it receiv
ed liv the Senato T The Republican
majority of that body bo amended it as
to give the Republicans 19, tho Do
Mocrato 7, and leaving two districts so
close as to admit of doubt. The pro
babilities aro that tho doubt in each
case would havo been resolved in fa
ror of the Democrats, but oven then the
disproportion was so manifest that tho
aakim: it wa tantamount to declaring
wilful violation of tho constitution is
what oaused tho extia session to bo
called, and tho Republican party is
clearly and logically responsible for it i
let the people hold the party lenders
and party representatives to a ngiu ui
count for it
THE SITUATION AT 1IAEEI8DUR0
Both branches of thu Legislature
havo passed a resolution which pro
vides that no pay shall bo received
after September 10th. This resolution
was introduced by democrats in both
branches. As soon as pay was cut off
tlio republican Sonators, under tho tlio
tntion of Boss Cooper, met in caucus
and resolved to entertain nothing that
comes from tho House but a motion to
adjourn, tho McCrauken bill, or an ap
propriation bill. Tho senato will meet
only on Tuesdays and Fridays. One
of the chief characteristics of tho republi
ican party for years has been a disro
gnrd for tho Federal constitution and
it is not to bo wondered at that tho
leaders in this Stato should not hesi
tato to disobey the plain mandato of
our stato constitution, by adopting this
revolutionary method ot ticieating np
The Oost of Republican Junketing.
A dispatch from Washington says s
Persons familiar with the subject
estimate that tho junketings and ab
senteeism of tho present season have
cost tho country over $1,000,000.
Wcro that timo for which tho service
was rendered, and which is paid for
all tho same, taken into account, tho
amount would be much greator. Pro
curing appropriations nominally for
inspections, but largely for ploasuro up
at) J down tho coast, on tho lake and in
pleasant places, is a costly abuse and
growing every year.
besides the Tallapoosa and Dispatch,
which havo been emnloved bv Chand
ler and Arthur for months as private,
yaohts, at a daily cost to the govern
ment of soveral hundred dollars, other
government vessels, notably revenue
cutters, havo been employed by pleas
ure parties, sometimes for pretended
tours of duty and sometimes without
oven that pretence. For tho money
thus spent it would bo hard to hod any
valuablo result The highest officers
of tho government havo setthc example
in wrongs and abuses, which JUr,
Buchanan, as President, instantly
Btoppcd, but which since his timo havo
grown into tho government like rotten
ness into a fallen tree. It is a neces
sary conclusion that whero so much is
Been and gloried in, much that is worso
and hidden exists. But the greater
ovil is in tho effect of tho example, of
tho highest in office on all beneath
them and throughout tho government.
Tho unsoundness of tho head extends
throughout tho system. The timo has

only by a completo change in the gov
The Continued Failure of Justice.
Tho acquittal of tho outlaw, Frank
James, is bad enough in and of itself,
but it is worso when considered as part
of an almost unbroken scries of simi
lar verdicts in all parts of the country.
The cases of Dukes in Pennsylvania,
Thomson in Kentucky, tho Star route
robbers in Washington, ot numerous
cold-blooded murderers in Chicago,
followed by this instanco in Missouri,
aro sufficient to occasion moro or less
In each and every one of theso cases
tho guilt of tho parties under trial was
undoubted. Whether murderers, pub
lic plunderers or outlaws, the evidence
has been plain, straightforward and
conolusivo. The influences which have
brought about acquittal havo been
various. In soveral of them political
power has been brought to bear. In
one a partisan jury was tho moving
causo ; in others money was freely used
to buy jurors or to suborn witnesses. In
tho present instance tho vague fear of
personal revenge on the part of the
friends of tho criminal has played no
In every ono of tho trials thus cited
a certain sentiment of sympathy has
been developed in tho immediato
neighborhood. Tho innocent victims
of violence, the offences against publio
virtue, tho wanton deeds of tho outlaw,
havo all been forgotten in mock heroio
sympathy with tho most dangerous of
criminals. Tho movement to bo ontcr
cd uion next with the energy common to
this country is ono to instruct tho gen
eral public, from which jurors aro
drawn, that tho interests of society nod
tho rights of liberty and property aro
far more sacred and important than
tho necks of tho villains who assault
Simon V, Ease's Law-Suit.
The Philadelphia Times of Tuet)dav.
gives the following account of a suit
one of tho parties to which is well known
in this county.
ueorgo Junkin, master in chancery
in tho case of Simon P. Kase against
the Danville, Hazleton and Wilkesbar-
Uailroad, has entered a decree
awarding tho defendants 510,785,86,
with interest, which will increase tho
amount nearly one-third. This road,
wmon ior over six years has been on
gaged in litigation with Mr. Kase, was
started by tho latter m 1807 and com
pleted as far as Catawissa in 1872. Its
starting point was at Sunbury. It was
begun almost without capital, and from
its inception until the foreclosure of the
mortgages by tho bondholders, in 1875.
Kase was at times its president, super
intendent and financial agent lie
retired from the road in 1875. In 1877
ho proceeded agaitisl tho company in a
suit in whioh he claimed to be ontitled
to $750,000, which ho had advanced
to the company and for whioh ho had
reoeived no return. A countor-suit
was brought by tho bondholders for
the recovery of raonoy alleged to bo
owed tho company by Kaso. Tho caso
was referred to George Junkin as mas
tcr in chancery. In rendering his de
cision, on Saturday, Mr. Junkin award
ed counsel lor thu plamtllt until bept
ember 20 for tho filing of exceptions
to tho ruling. Tho testimony in the
caso forms a volume, of several hun
dred pages. Probably tho most inter

quostion Air. ivaso admitted that he
was a believer in Spiritualism and af
ter somo hesitation related the follow
ing incident : While wandering about
a bpiritualists' c amp meeting in Alassa
ohusetts ho heard his namo called and
on looking around discovered that the
sound piooeeded from a tent near at
hand. Promptod by curiosity ho en
tered tho tout and found a seance in
progress. Hearing his namo called
again ho recognized tho voico of tho
Into Colonel Scott and was satisfied at
onco that he was tho recipient of a
spiritual visitation. "I could not doubt
it," said Mr. Kase, "and immediately
questioned tho spirit as to its wishes
concerning mo." Tho colonel then
said in a volco in whioh sadness and
retribution were indescribably blend
od that since hia departure from earth
liu had been much troubled by tho re
collodion that during his life ho had
treated him (Mr. Kase) with great In-
Justice, had mado himso'.f a barrier to
lr. Kaso's success and finally prayed
that nny wrong inflicted might bo for
given. Mr. Kaso claimed that ho held
a long conversation with the spirit of
tho departed ox-railroad prcsidout, in
which ho talked plainly and dearly of
mo nuaira cccuring during his mo
and seemed to bo conversant with mat
ters dovelopcd after his decease. Kaso
inadu theso statements under oath. It
It is Bald that with interest tho finding
against Mr. Kase will reach fully $000,
000. Ho is, however, without meaus,
and tho decision, oven if indorsed by
tho Court, will bo of littlo practical
valuo so far as tho recovery of tho
money is concerned.

iMnokstono says that there Is no wrong
without a remedy. Hut can cither tho
civil law or social regulations afford any
atlequato protection ngaluat, or redress
for, tho serious wrongs dono by slander
and detraction ? Men nro not only prone
to listen with credulity to tho whispers ot
fancy, but still more so to the artfully tic
vised statements of envy, hatred and
malice. And the Injuries thus Inflicted,
cither In business affairs, or upon a man's
reputation, even more sacred and vnluablo
to htm than property, may ho ruinous In
their consequences. Hero Is a flagrant
wrong j but where is tho remedy? Tho
ordinary suit for slander has become dis
reputable, and almost obsolete. Besides
this It Is wholly Inapplicable or unavaila
ble In most serious cases. Tho slanderer
often approaches the parties he designs to
inllucnco In tho garb of friendship and
confidence, protending falsely to bo giving
information for the benefit of, ond out of
friendship for tho parties to whom the ma
licious and falso communications are
made. 8o that tho victim of tho slander
and defamation Is often not allowed even
to know tho source from which tho Injury
originates. And the wrong often Injures
tho party to whom tho slander and de
traction aro communicated as much and
sometimes even moro than the victim of
the malice himself. Indeed, the slandsr Is
often designated to produce variances,
and to Injure both.
As no adequate remedy can exist for
such wrongs by suit, protection can only
ho found in a higher tone, and moro rigid
conservatism In social and business affairs.
Slander, detraction, and defamation should
bo scorned, eschewed, and frowned itown ;
and credulity should he withheld from all
attempts at defamation, however plausible
and covered under the disguise of profess.
cd friendship. The methods of slander
aro often subtle and most imposing.
Cicero said, "There Is nothing which
wings its flight so swiftly as calumny;
nothing which is uttered with moro case ;
nothing is listened to with more readiness,
nnd nothing dispersed moro widely."
Dean Swift said, "Tho worthiest people
are tho most injured by slander, as we
usually find that to bo the best fruit which
tho birds hayc been pecking at the most."
Peter the Great Is said to have remarked
to a man speaking ill of another in his
presence, "It Is easy to splash mud ; but I
would rather help a man to keep his coat
Madame Roland exclaimed, "What In-
iulgcncc docs tho world extend to those
evil-speakers, who, under tho mask ot
friendship, stab indiscriminately with the
keen though rusty blade of slander."
In the language of St. Bernard, "Slander
is a poison which extinguishes charity,
both in tho slanderer and in the person
who listens to it."
And in the words of Lcighton, "Cal
umny would soon die of Itself If nobody
took it in and gave it lodging."
Cowpcr says :
"The man that dares traduce because ho can
With safety to himself, ii not. a man."
In the Inimitable language of Shakes
"The lewel. best pnampllM.
Will lose ltsboauty, andbo no man that hatha
But falsehood and corruption doth It shame."
And, again :
"No mlgnt nor greatness In morality
Can censure 'scape ; back-wounding calumny
Tho whitest virtue strikes.
The only protection which can ho pro-
vldcd against this greatest of oil pests to
society andjtho world, is to elevate the
manners and bearing of men, cultivato an
abhorrence for tho foul spirit of defama
tion, and utterly eschew detraction, and
refuse all attention and credence to its dis
gusting details. American Reguler.
