FRIDAY, MAU01I 27, 1885.
Considerable discussion 1ms liccn
nronscd by tlio selection of Eugene
Iliggins by Secretary Manning, ns ap
pointment clerk ot tlio Treasury Du
partmeut. It is charged now that
Iliggins is a gambler and a friend of
gamblers. His friend, however, insist
that the charges are false. Secretary
Manning will undoubtedly investigate,
and act accordingly. If Iliggins ia
tlio kind of a man he is accused of be
ing, he ought not to hold an appoint
ment under this administration t if Iih
is not, ho ought not to bo deposed
simply because tho organs of the party
of tho Dormiya and Uradys and Bel
knaps and their kind arc doing an im
mense amount of howling.
President Cleveland has madu tho
following appointments : James D.
Porter, First Assistant Secretary of
State J. D. C. Atkins of Tennessee,
for Commissioner of Indian affairs ;
Qeorgo II. Pendleton of Ohio Minister

LEUISLATOBS AND THEIR PAY.
Under existing laws members of the
legislature draw $1000 for 100 days,
and 810 a day fur each additional day,
not exceeding 50. No one expects '.hat
a session will adjourn inside of 150
days no matter whether thero is necessi
ty for bo long a session; ano no one ex
pects a session to continue long after
the time expires for which the mem
beis draw their pay, no matter what
business of importance may remain un
finished. Then- is something radically wrong
about this. The law should be chang
ed so that members are paid a fixed
salary without regard to the length of
the session. This would shorten the
sittings of the legislature and thus con
fer a blessing on tho people. Laws
that arc passed cost the state on an
average, $50,000 apiece, while many
of them are so crude, so badly con
structed and so little considered that
they cause much unnecessary litigation
in the effort to have the courts cou
strue the intended meaning of the leg
islature. What the state needs is a
fixed salary for its representatives and
better men than the average member
to make tho laws.
THE CAPITAL-LABOR CONFLICT.
In tho course of our country's devel
opment from its primeval history, pro
gicss noticeably accelerated in all its
stages in every department of its being
that contributes to its illDtri(ii
whole. Ideas, conceived as applicable,
or feasible in industrial enterprises, or
as motives lor transportation over land
and sea, or, the thousands of important
and useful inveulions that add to the
wonders of tho ago in manner and
form, performing rnarvclc us things,
both as to system and labor-saving,
were looked upon, and regarded by an
incredulous public as tutile and mali
cious schemes, and as emanating from
insane or diabolical minds, and neces
sarily ending in disgrace and failure.
But, upon full and practical demonstra
tion of each and every invention, the
triumphant inventor has never even
seen the beginning of tho mysterious
uses and extent to which it is daily
developing in the services, accommo
dation and convenience, of man. It ap
pears that each succeeding generation
only lives to see new, and Hill higher
developments in the order of time and
progression. But, notwithstanding all
the glorious and illustrious develop
ments of science and art, which always
systematize and expedite capital and
labor, there is, nevertheless, an irre
concilable conflict going on between
them, to which wo fear, the latter can
look for relief, only with a forlorn
hope. Tho inevitable, inequality, is
irreversibly established, and irrevoca
bly fixed in the great body of capital
iu all its multitudinous labor-saving en
terprises which displace periodically,
hundreds of thousands of working men,
tho same requiring only a certain per
cent of the whole body of laborers,
working on full tirao to supply all de
mands known to the wants of the hu
man family. Besides, inventive genius
and scienco always conspire against
tho laboring man, und in favor of mo
nopoly, corporation and capital in gen
eral. And further j the producing capa
city of all our industries, for manufac
turing and supplying commodities for
public, or, privato use, at home or
abroad, far exceeds their steady con
sumption, which causes a gradual ac
cumulation of a surplus of production,
until no further demand exists, and
business wheels become clogged, finan
cial panic threatened, or produced,
and labor suspended with its usual
hardships, privations and sufferings.
Such a state- of affairs always continue
until tho surplus moves off through the
regular channel consumption, when
now and urgent demands again open
np business and trade briskly with tu
ture good prospects, and labor for a
timo is contented and satisfied until the
aamo dilliouity again occurs. Labor is
always satisfied with reasonably good
wages aud steady employment. But
no amount of legislation can possibly
regulate our industries so as to secure
for them a steady operation to their
full capacity on full time, except, how
ever, it wero possible to creato a do
mand equal to, or, superior to the ca
pacity of supply at all times. Aud uu
til this be accomplished, labor mcessar
ily will, and must suffer more or less,
tor want of employment. 1 here arc
not vineyards enough to employ it all.
There is a universal business law, ob
served to tho very letter, that no inter
est employs a greater ntnrunt of labor
than is profitable or advantageous U
that interest. Moreover capital recog-
niis labor to no greater extent than
that it couliibutch to its ever increas
ing bulk. Capital haidly ever suffers,
but labor often. Ingenious labor-saving
machinery have caused frequent
.spasmodic but-lwfs convulsions ami do
juif.tions, but also hastened the devel
oinuoul of our country a thousand
Tho statement of the financial af
fairs of this county, published last
month, shows that the cost of new
roads during tho year was $1057.90,
for viewers, damages, and commission
ers' pay. To this must bo added the
cost to each township of opening now
roads. As very few of tho townships
publish their statements so that they
can bo scrutinized, we are unable, to
say how much is spent annnallly on
roads, but it will aggregate a largo

too much of u township to make a new
road for tho accommodation 'of ono or
two persons, simply because it is little
moro convenient or "a litllo shorter than
tho old way.
With tho present number of roads in
this county there are comparatively few
persons who aro not ablo to get out
from their farms by a public highway,
and when now ones aro asked for, view

the conveniences of any individual de

whether the probablo expense will not

in each case. Wo have no referenco
to any particular instance. What has
been said is applicable generally.
Beduoins Expenses in the Treasury.
Secretary Manning has sent a circu
lar letter to the head of bureaus and
chiefs, of divisions of tho Treasury De
partment requesting them to report to
him in writing as soon as practicable
whether, iu their opinion, tho force em
ployed in their respective offices can be
reduced, and to wliat extent, without
detlimcnt to tbo publio service. They
aro also requested to report whether
tho methods of business can bo sinipli
tied and in general to make such sug
gestions and recommendations as may
occur to them as to how tho efficiency
of the scrvico may bo improved, the
business of the department facilitated
and tho expenses curtailed. In ac
cordance with these instructions Mr.
Iliggins, acting chief of the appoint
ment division, instructed tho clerks of
the division to furnish him, at as early
a day as practicable, with a full state
ment of tho duties pertaining to their
respective desks, bimilar action will
bo taken by all the bureau and division
The Business Outlook.
Perhaps the most encouraging fea
ture of the commercial situation at tho
?iresent timo is tho condition of the
oreign trade of tho couutry. Last
week, for instance, the exports of do
mestic products from this port showed
an increase of about $400,000, and the
imports a falling off of nearly $5,000,
000 as compared with the correspond
ing period last year. On the one hand
ths increased exports show that wo are
find ng a better market for our surplus
products of 1SH4, whito on tho other
hand the dimiui-ht-d importations in
dicMe clearly that tho Amcricau peo
ple have learned a wholesome lesson in
economy from the depn-psed condition
of business since the memorable "boom"
of 1880. Tho chango must prove of
lasting benefit to all legitimate inter
ests, which are so dependent upon a
conservative policy in the matter of
consumption of foreign luxurits. Tho
fact that the balance of trade in our
favor is increasing is also important
for the reason that it allays any fears
in regard to an efflux of gold, while it
renders an import movement qnito
probable at no distant day. World.
Makers of Bad Cents.
An engraver called at the oflico of
the Secret Service Bureau in tho Post
Oflico building, New York city, on
.Harcu 12, and showed Jol. a. ii.
Druromond a few counterfeit cents and
a three-cent nickel. He said Morris
Uodansky, a jeweller at ol JUdrnige
street, had given them to him in change.
Uhiet Drummoiul started Mr. .vcs
out. He did not find Uodansky at 51
Eldridgu street, aud the people said
Uodansky had moved away in the
night and gono back to Poland. Eves
learned that a jeweller named Harris
Rodansky lived at 19 Essex street.
Eves left a watch with Rodansky to bo
repaired.. When he eanw to pay the
bill ot IU cents, he got in change litty-
threo cents in good money, two couti'
terfeit three-cent pieces, and a counter
The next day Chief Drumraond took
a 6crew out of his office clock and sent
a boy with tho clock to Rodansky to
have it fixed. In paying for tho re
pairs tho boy received somo counter-
fieit coins in change. Chief Drum
mond stopped another clock and sent
it loi repairs. A young roan in the
oflico called for it at 8 oclock last
Thursday night, and received in change
trom anuther man m the shop lour bad
three-cent pieces, and five bad cents.
Ho found out that the man who was
in business with Rodansky was Joseph
Kalpon. Both men wero arrtsted
aud their room on tho second
floor back, was searched for 2J hours,
while Mrs. Rodansky lay on tho bed
ana screamed. The othcers tound in

under beds and in closets, and bags of

mixed with spurious iu some of the

very light weight, but the three-cent
pieces, made of German silver and
nickel, wero so ncaily perfect, that ex
perts at Washington, who had seen

ed before making tho arrest, declared
that they would have to seo more of

they wero not genuine. Mr. Floyd of

Tho Legislature tins been In scs'lnn
over seventy fivo days, and in that
time has passed four laws at a cost l
the state of $225,000, each ono costing
over $50,000, and all of them of minor
importance. Tho legislature is compos
I'd largely of republicans, thero being
majority-in each branch, and Ihorefoii1
tho responsibility for this slow work
must fall on them. Two jears ago
when the governor called an extra ses
sion for tho purpose of passing appor
tionment bills as required by the law
of tho state, tho republican senate
ndopted an ultimatum, and positively
refused to comply with tho requiic
incuts of the constitution unit ss they
could have their way, nnd tho result
was, no apportionment. Now they
havo both branches, but their beloveil
ultimatum has not made its appear
anco. Tho House has one bill and the
Senate another, and it is likely between
tho two tho session will again close
without obedience to the constitution,
making the second timo for which the
republican party is responsible for this
sort of thing.
Should bills pass that are not consti
tutional, that is in which tho districts
aro not cninpo'ed of compact and con
tiguous territory, the governor will
veto them, and the bills as proposed bv
each branch do not como up to this
standard. It looks, therefore, as though
it is the deliberate intention of tho ma
jority in the legislature to prevent the
pasage ot any apportionment bills. It
this happens, thero should be no more
extra session foolishness, but let the is.
sue go before tho people, and if they
endorse such action a second time,
then there will bo no cause fur complaint.
(From our Itejular Correspondent.
Washington, Mar. 23, 1885.
Tho political situation in Washing
ton was never more interesting than it
is now, but the interest is entirely de
void of sensation. It will bo tho prov
ince of history with a ntrospi ction of
fifty years or moro to poitray tlie great
and important changes, tho slow, but
potent revolution that is now taking
place. The observer of to-day can
catch only here aud there a scene and
a sign in tho prognss of events as thty
are ovolvcd around him. Mr. Cleve
land's administration may not be pre
cisely what many of his supporters
havo hoped, but their disappointment
cannot cqu-il that of tho supporters of
Mr. Blaine, who sou in the wisdom,
the caution, and tho conservatism of
the administration, the refutation of
their predictions aud the ruin of their
hopes. With tbo exception of tho ap
pointment of the now celebrated Mt.
Iliggins, malice itself has been ablo to
find no fault with those who have been
placed in offico. The ton cut of ani
madversion that poor Iliggins has re
ceived must strike the averago govern
ment employee as very absurd, for
oven if the worst said of him is true, it
follows that he is only as bad as tho
thousands whom the party of "moral
ideas" has cherished iu its heart of
hearts for at least sixteen years. Hig
gins gambles, ho stuffs ballot boxes, he
is smart and tricky, is tho cry of the
saintly rascals and rogues who suppor
ted a man like Blaine, and men like
Robeson and Belknap, and who stole
tho presidency only eight years ago.
Why, a largo uumiier ol the uepuiili
can employees in office now are drunk-
aids, aud gamblers, men with salaries
of from $1000 to $2500, who would
not bo trusted for uve dollar-', and who
would bo dismissed to-morrow, it it
wi ro not for tho fact that they sej-ved
in the Union army. Ye hypocrites.

Iliggins eyu beloru hu was appointed
to a subordinate office in tho Treasury
Department. It is curious, grotesque,
and moralecquo to seo what a high
standard the Republicans have set up
for those from whom a few mouths
ago everything vile was vooilerously
A great change has como over tho
city of Washington, has permeated all
the Government offices, has affected
the homes aud even the shops of the
people. That tho new administration
will fulfill its contract to conduct the
Government on business principles, in
the interest of the people, instead of
for the office-holder, is now believed by
all. Government clerks no longer feel
the sheltering arm of their Republican
''influence," und aro working in a way
that is surprising. Those who before
the election weru blatent and abusive
of Democrats can not now ha hired to
Bay a word against them, aud some
havo even taught their lips to utter
praise. Tho average government clerk
is very unhappy. Ho is awaro that ho
has very little to do, and that he is not
qualified to do even that little. He has
heard that the now administration will
reorganize tho departments aud dis
charge tlie useless, the incompetent,
tho idle, tho drunkard and tho gam
bler. He knows that this means him.
Ho knows that outsido the govern
ment office, he cannot make a living;
that better clerks aro working in busi
nes houses all over-tho country for one
half and one third the nmo'unt ho is
paidj working constantly for ten aud
twelve hours a day, while ho has been
doing sham work for only soven hours
Shop keepors, especially those who
sell cigars and tobacco, as well as sa
loon keepers tell mu that times ure very
dull. Government clerks aro ccono
mixing in preparation for tho day of
Iu making its appointments, I un
derstand tho administration will bu
very careful to select only competent
and sober men und it is expected that
the moral tone of the scrvico and of
the city will bo improved. Improve
ment is already discernible. President
Arthur's administration was compara
tively respectable, but it was at best a
succession of tho Grant regimo of vul
garity and dishonesty ami the Hayes
regime of frud and hypocrisy. I
think President Arthur thought more
of his distinction as a fine gentleman
than of his fame- as a statesman There
is now a promise of simpler manners,
purer laws. Washington (luring tlio
noxt foui years may not be- the Mecca

will bo moro than ever tho ideal Capl
tal of a decent democracy.
