FROM OCU REGULAR CORRESPONDENT. J
Washington, Fcb'y. 17, 1885
Congress for tho past week has been
tho football of obstructive, dilatory and
mischievous cranks. Appropriation
bills and other important if not indis
pensable legislation have been delayed
and an extra Bession seems very proba
ble. Well, who cares T Let an extra
Bession bo called. A member of Coo
gres is paid $5000 a year aud whether
no legislates in Washington or vege
tates in his rural home, he draws his
' pay all tho same. We pay Congress
w mane laws, it is desperately dtiU
cult to keep them down to their work,
They are wretched shirks; they seldom
pull together oxcept on a motion to ad
journ, but since they are paid so much
per year let their alleged work be con
tinuous throughout the year. It would
bo better to pay them by tho day and
only wbon ther are in their seats.
When a member fails to answer to his
name on roll call dock hu wages. If
he is tardy, require him to bring a
written exouso from his wife. ,If these
wholesome rules were enforced there
would be less absenteeism, less skip
ping arontid the oorner, less solitary
ana iniormai adjournment to tho res
Uurants in the basement of the Capi
tol. Tho fact is, that tho people are
iuu easy anu lenient wnn Itiosu wno,
wiin vaunting hypocney, call them
selves "publio servants. These depu
tized legislative employes, to speak it
mildly, aro many of them bummers and
loafers, interesttd, chiefly in their pri
vate ambitions and pleasures, and lit
terly indifferent to, or ignorant of, tho
needs of the great interests which
they are sent to represent. Congresn
is not up with tho times. It is not at
all progressive. So far as I know par
liaraontary methods and procedure are
not much better now than when Rome
was a Hepubho 2000 years ago. A
plan has been devised to call the roll
by electricity, and thus register instan
taneously the vote of overy member,
but the old and tedious plan of calling
the ayes and nays is still followed, con
suming a great portion of the session.
An extra session will probably bo
called early in April. It is said that
tho democrats desire to avoid an extra
session on political grounds, but appro
hensions aro perhaps exaggerated, and
it is time legislators should rise above
mero party expediency and do their
duty without fear. In tho end this
would prove to bo the broadest and
It will be remembered that eight
years ago tho petty Michigan accident
who coupled the Vice President's seat
in the Senate, assumed that he was tho
proper person to declare who was Pres
ident of the United States. Worked
by Zach Chandler, John Sherman,
Morton, and other desperate conspira
tors; this piippet had much to do in
making tho deplorable makeshift of tho
electoral commission possible. I will
mention that his namo was Ferry, for
perhaps tho reader has forgotten his
name, as has tho world his existence".
Senator Edmunds, tbo present Vice
President's recent much discussed an

It looks now as If Mr. Thurman will

tno jetiersonian rather than tho Ham
iltonian principles; upon tho sound old
democratic anto-bellum methods, which
advanced tho country in all of its di
versified interests, to that high degree
of prosperity which it was enjoying
when the deplorable war broke out, a
war undertaken most unwisely nnd
wickedly to avert a danger imagined
to bo menaced by tho possession of tho
Government by a strictly sectional
party. Thero is no reason to apprehend
that our party, in tho long lapse of
time during which it has been exclud
ed from power has abjured any of its
doctrines, or unlearnt any of its les
sons. Tho great sages who havo il
lustrated its history and exemplified
its beneficent principles havo left their
memories to their followers, and wo
still havo our Randalls, our Bayards,
our Tildcns, our Seymours, our Tuck
ers, our Laniars, and a host of kin
dred spirits, to follow in the nath
which they glorified with their patri
otic footsteps, and to carry on tho
great work to which they devoted a
lifctimo of noblo endeavors.
There need be no dread that tho
South will embarass tho party in tho
administration of the Government by
any iniemperato deportment. We ful
ly understand and adequately appreci
ate tho delicacy and responsibility of
our position. Wo are awaro that we
aro watched by tho defeated conspira
tors, with a lynx-eyed eagerness, in
the forlorn hope that by our foolish
misconducts we may damage our par
ty and give them a little capital for
another campaign ; for at present they
aro utterly bankrupt of available is
sues,'' and nothing but howls of "rebel
insolence," "rebel yells," "rebel de
signs," and such sickening stuff, of
which tho country has had much more
than enough can help them. Wo shall
not seek to control the Government, or
take any active part, even in conduct
ing its operations. Wo feel thoimnru-
dence as well as tho indecorum of our
assuming such a part when we remem
ber how comparatively brief a period
has transpired since our desncrata anil

A bill entitled "An act to prohibit
tho immigration of foreigners and aliens
under contract or agreement to perform
labor in tho United States, its Territor
ies and tho District of Columbia" was
discussed in tho Senate a few days ago.
Tht bill oiiginatcd in tho House, and
prohibits any person or company from
preparing tho transportation or encour
aging the Importation of foreigners un
der ngrccmeut to perform labor in the
United Statos, nnd makes void all con
tracts of that oharacter, whether ex
press or implied, parolo or special. A
penalty of $1,000 is fixed for infrao
tion of that provision. Shipmasters
aro forbidden under penalty of 500 to
bring emigrants who havo mado such
agreements. Citizens of foreign conn,
tries temporarily miioiirnitiir in tho
United States aro not amenable to tho
provisions of the bill bo far as related
to their private secretaries or domestic
servants. The bill does not apply to
tho cases of actors, professional sing
ers, fcc, nor is it so to apply as to pre
vent persons or corporations from en
gaging in foreign countries workmen
skilled In any industry not at present
established in the United States, pro
vided skilled labor for that purpose
cannot bo otherwise obtained. Tho
bill further provides that it shall not be
construed as to prohibit any individual
from assisting any member of his fam

Considerable debate arose on tho
bill. Mr. Hawlov thought parts of tho
bill in contravention of natural right. 1

needed tho clothing that might bo

tions of our manufactories now stored
in warehouses nnd waiting for a pur
chaser. They wero in need of tho
corn that was to-day being used for
fuel on tho plains ot Nobraska and the
wheat that was being fed to hogs in
tho valleys of Kansas. Tho question
was, had wo a right to protect our
own citizens against a dangerous and
letrimontal competition, whether forc
ed on us by the ambition of thoso de-
iring to improvo their condition or by
tho oupidity of those groat employers
who were indifferent as to the means
they employed to Hwell their already
egregious gains, the nations of tins
earth, under this doctrino of natural
"rights, had been dumping their pan
pors and criminals and dangerous and
uneasy classes until, in Mr. IngalPs
opinion, m view ot recent events in
Now York, Cincinnati and Chicago
the timo had como to consider whether
we might not be called upon to mod
ify, in some degree, our views as to the
significance of the declaration of Amer
ican independence, and tho universal
rights of man. It was becoming n
very serious question, Jir. ingalls add
ed, how wo shou'd secure what we had
by exertion, religion nnd tho observ

If we did not take caro tho dangers
that had threatened despotism would
with ruthless rago assail tho institu
tions of republican freedom. Another
financial crash might witness danger
ous assaults upon our institutions. As
to tho bill under discussion, while Mr.
Ingalls thought some of its provisions
not altogether unexceptionable, it was
a measure in the right direction. It
would protect our laborers from an in
famous Ireo trado in labor that wa
worse than African slavery, because it
involved an ignoble and degrading
competition ignoble and degrading

and to thoso who accept them
Mr. Bayard did not seo tho present
direct application of Mr. Ingalls s re
marks. I'hoso remarks wero directed
against commuuistlo forces which pro
posed to array numbers against, prop

this character that such forces wero to
be met by measures amending our cri

and their daughter, Mrs. Wilson, to
go and ho would meet them there.
"They need not engage a seat for him.

wedged himself lu along one of tho
sido aisles and happened in front of
somo men who wcro perched upon a
window-sill. Ono of them touched
him on tho shoulder and told liim to
stand aside. Just then a big. double-

window sill ornaments with the firm
inquiry ; "Do you know who you're

shouted ;" git down quick,' and as
they slid from their ronst he yelled :
"Shlll I knock them down, Governor ;

By this time tho doorkeepers had
reached the parties, when Curtin's pro
tector shouted, "Git tho old Governor

"git him a sent," ho continued in a
voico that silenced all the actors on tho
stage. "Git him a seat ; here's tho
money for it." Thero was ono privato

to end tho scene that was not on the

Philadelphia is wondering
what it means. The mer
chants are wondering, not
what it means, but how it is
done. Ask them Go over
there. The black-silk trade
in this city is mostly suspen
ded. Of course it isn't
stopped in New York they
don't s-e Philadelphia adver

It was a stirring ,! viugh
event to sell th se cloths of
Lupin's below the wholesale
price, liy the way, the
aregtMu J Dm Lupin makes
a great many cloths; anil his
fame doesn't rest on any one
of them whileGuinet makes
nothing but silk: and all his
fame has come from silk.
When we sell two Lupin
cloths below the wholesale
price, we only touch a
trilling part of his product.
When we sell Guinet black
silk below, we sweep the
breadth of the. market as far
as we reach.
Why sell Holly Tree
inn 'in so? To introduce it.
Tn a ivertise it. To quickly
force attention to a stuff you
ii'.dn to know about. To
i'nniiit. r a market.
Why sell Lupin's dress

stir up trade by the means,
du nobody harm, and scatter
lu ::nty-thousand yards o(
people who ( oinmonly buy
a iower erade. Surelv
nobody is going to complain
Why sell Guinet silk so?
Do you really want to know?
For some leason, trade in
silk is slow to change its
channels We want five
times as m.tch as we've got.
We don't see any reason
wli) this store shouldn't be
tli - first one to think of,
wheiwer silk comes into
the thoughts of everybody
within trading distance. So
we make you think of it

If we were only selling a
ion or two of Guinet black

gather trade, and meant to
make, up our losses now by
extra profits by and by
that would be one thing.
That isn't our way ; or, if it
is, we haven't got to it yet.
