(From our Regular Correspondent.)
Wasuinoton. ). 0.. April 12, 1880.
It is to bo hoped the creditable work
done by Congress during tho week is
an earnest of what is to follow for tho
next three months. When tho Scnato

gratified that many of them wero seen
Thirteen Democratic Senators voted
against the admission of Washington
Territory as a State, after paying tho
female votora out thero a good deal of
attention. Senator KubUs feared that
when the women became U. S. Senators
they would tell all tho secrete connect
ed with oxecutivo sessions. Senator
Heck held that tho women would never
bo old enough to come within tho con
stitutional limitations as to ago.
Tho newly appointed Senator from
California, Mr. Hearst, was escorted to
tho Capitol by his millionaire colleague,
Stanford. After being sworn in, ho
took his seat on the Democratic side,
and cast his tires voto against tho ad
mission of Washington Territory. Mr.
Hearst makes another addition to tho
already long list of rich men in the
Senate. His daily income is said to. bo
about $1,200. Ho has been represent
ed by bis enemies as simply a man of
money, though there are prooaDly Jew
men who depond less on wealth and
position than he. Ho sunk a good deal
of his money in order to give the Dem
ocrats of his state iho San Francisco
Examiner, a daily paper in sympathy
with their views. His only son has
chosen journalism for his profession.
After familiarizing himself with its de
tails by beginning at the bottom of the
ladder, ho oxpects to take charge of his
The House of llepreseutatives also
voted for the Congressional Library,
voted to pension the Mexican veterans,
all that is left of them, and besides
passing half a dozen bills of more or
less importance, defeated the Blaud
bill for tbe unlimited coinage of silver.
That probably settles the silver agita
tion for the remainder of the session,
leaving the question whero it was at
the beginning ot the winter.
An employe of tho Government
Printing Office surprised me by saying
tho demand for speeches on the silver
question for campaign purposes was
greater than for those on political sub
jects. The largest order received this
. session by tbe Publio Printer was for
William L. Scott's speech in support of
a compromise on tho silver question.
Mr. Scott is from Pennsylvania, he is a
Democrat, is the wealthiest man in the
Lower House, and has been mentioned
as a possible successor to the Bick Sec
retary of the Treasury. The next
largest order was for Senator Beck's
notable speech on silver, which bis
been called for by members of both
Despite the fact that the President
has been warned by physicians since
Secretary Manning, was stricken down,
he takes no more rest, reoreatiou, or
exerciso than before, but keeps bard at
work. His habits of labor seein to be
so fixed as to admit of no change, and
ho tells bis friends ho knows what ho
can do, and that there is no use talking
More strangers have visited Wash
ington during tho present season than
any previous one. They came in crowds
to tho White House daily, and Mr.
Cleveland's hand shaking receptions,
which occur every other day, are at
tended by hundreds. Miss Cleveland's
receptions throughout tho season were
very largely attended. Somo of them
were Buch crushes that the crowd wai,
at times, admitted three or four abreast
and extra guards wero employed to
keep the people in order.
Curious incidents have oucurcu on
some of these occasions. For intance,
a White House usher woa assaulted by
two women because he would not ad
rait them last eaouuh. lliev were
tall, muscular women, aud they bruised
the man badly. It was the intention
to arrest tho otlenilers, ami turn were
pointed out to a policeman, but on
second thought thu matter was allow
ed to pass.
Miss Cleveland boro her part during
the last social season with n great deal
of credit to herself. She showed much
good sense and kind-heartedness. At
her last reception, after' she had been
shaking hands with thousands, and
was necessarily very tired, tho publish'
ed hour for clos'tncr the houso arrived
There was still a long lino of peoplo
waiting to pay their respects. Iho
guards started to close- the doors, but
she ordered them leit open until all
who had como had been admitted.
East St. Louis is occupied by the
state militia, anil martial law has been
declared. Trains are protected by
soldiers, and the striking railroad men
are quiet. On Friday last thero was
blood shed, when several Deputy Sher
iffs, who had charge of tho Louisvillo
and Nashville crossing near Broadway,
fired into t crowd of threo hundred
strikers, killing several and wounding
others. Toe Deputy Sheriffs were all
armed with Winchester rilles and re
volvers. There wero fourteen rifles
in tho patty aud many of the men had
two revolvers, eaeh man having at
least one. They Bay that they wero
guarding a Louisville & Nashvillo coal
train ul tho Broadway crossing when
thev were assailed by a crowd of about
threo hundred men, who wero gathered
there. Stones wero thrown at thcin'
-and thoy declare '.hut a couplo of police
officers headed tho mob. Tho Deputies
opened pre ou the mob nuu made then
escape. They claim that somo shoot
ing was also done by tho crowd. The
shooting excited the mob to a higl:
pitch aud $32,000 worth of railroad
property was destroyed by fire. Tho
militia was then ordered out

MaHter Workman T. V. l'owuerly
was recently called upon by n reporter.
Tho Labor chief rofused to discuss tho
subject, but it is understood that ne
gotiations nro iir progress for nn early
settlement of tho dilliculty. Tho bc

A Physclan lined for Non-Registry.
Dr. John Kge of Heading, is register
ed as a regular praetitiouer in that
county. Somo tinio ago one of his
patients residing in Lebanon County
was visited, ami JJr. lige was prompt
ly arrested for practicing medielno a-
cross tho county line, not being regis
tered in Lebanon County. Dr. lico's
counsel, maintained that tho stato law
required a doctor to bo registered in
somo ono county to show ho was a
regular gtaduatu and practising phy
sician, and that tho law did r.ot con
tcmplaU that physiciaus should bo
registered in every county they havo
happened to visit professionally. Judgo
Mol'herson hold tho matter under ad
visement for somo time, and finally con
cluded to fine Dr. Ego S1U0 and S5U
costs. Tho caso will be appoaM to
the Supremo Court.
Tho law requiring physicians to
register was intended to protect tno
legitimate medical profession as well
as the public, from quacks and frauds
anil bogus diplomas. siioinu mo on
prcmo Court sustain the decision of
Judgo MoPhcrson, tho law ought lo be
amended at tho first session of tho
legislature so as to allow physictans
who are regularly registered in any
county to practico their profession any-

tornretation of the law prohibits' thu
most eminent doctor in Philadelphia
from being called to any other county
as a consulting physician or to perform
some delicate surgical operation, with
out hist pioducing Ins diploma at tno
county seat, and being registered in
such county. This is often very incon
venient, and tho delay in some cases
might be fatal to the patient. Laws
of this character are not intended to be
uiurious to the public, and if they are
susceptiblo of 'an interpretation that is
clearly against the- publio good, they
ought to bo amended at the earliest
The Labor Problem as seen by a Labor
Mit. EniToit. Wo hear so much talk
and seo so much in print about protect
ing the laboring man, that it strikes
me the thing is rather overdone.
1 do not know any class ot people
better able to protect themselves than
tho laboring man. But I do not think
that labor unions for tho purpose of
forcing wages up to a certain point
is tho proper way to do it.
Tho price ot labor, .like larm pro
ducts and manufactured articles, will
always bo governed by the law of sup
ply and demand, lney who depend
upon others lo find thorn employment
must be content to accept the wages
that employers are ablo or willing to
give. Capitalists are not willing lo in
vest money in business, unless there is
a prospect of some profit over and a-
Jjove tho amount expended for labor.
This will appear reasonable, when wo
tako into consideration tho lact, that
they aro always liable to meet with
losses. I fence if without accident thero
is not a prospect of somo profit, there
is a very good chance or being worse
oil by doing business, than by lying
idle. When such is tho case employ
ers will insist, and justly too, on a re
duction of wages or a stoppage of their
Now I as a laboring man, ask any
aud every fair minded laboring man,
whether wo cannot support our families
better on low wages than we csn on no
Tho question admits of but ono ans
wer. There is a possibility ot wages
being so low that a man cannot sup
port his family comfortably ; but such
is not iho case at tho present time, it
is true that we cannot afford to ride in
a carriage, nor furnish our houses as
some of our wealthy men do j but theso
things aro luxuries and not necessary
lor cither health or eomtort. lint, my
fellow laborer, docs not our failure to
suceed in life arise from our desire to
indulge in luxuriest Do not many of
us spend enough lor cigars and ueer,
which if saved and prudently invested,
might m a lew years secure us a com
fortaule homo T it this is thu case is
not our poverty the result of our own
prodigality! With a little healthy
aud well directed economy might not

ing men bo comparatively independ'
It is no uncommon thing to seo em'
ployces in various branches of industry
spending ten, fifteen aud twenty cents
per day lor cigars or drink oi some
kind; and this amount is frequently
doubled. Now the man who spends
fifteen cents each day aggregates an
outlay of over fifty dollars nor year.
This amount properly handled would
in n few years enable him to leave that
class of 'laborers who depend upon
others lor employment, and engage in
homo business for himself.
If this theory weru acted upon, tho
number of men seeking employment
would bo greatly diminished. This
would givo those still in tho ranks moro
steady employment with an increase-
ot wages. 1 herein consists the labor
ing man's power for self-protection.
And my fellow laborers, this will
provo lar moro ciicetnai to secure
steady employment at living wage,
than strikes, labor unions, or any forcu
mado uso of to drive from the mines
or tho shops those who are willing to
work for less wages than wo think wo

and as I think it a very good one, I
will givo it here. Spend each day a
little less than your income If wo all
adopt this as our guide, wo may soon
bo capitalists ourselves on a small scale
and could better seo tho iujiistico nl
the laboring man's demand for wages
higher than our business would warrant.
This is no visionary or impracticable
theory. Wo cap all point to men who
have been employees on tho farm, in
tho shop or In tho mines, and nro now
working their own farms, Bupei intend
ing their own shops or arc doing some
business for which they furulsh tho
Many of our most reliable men com
menced business for themselves ns
laboring men, nnd in eomo instances
worked for very low wages. I was
talking with an old gentleman a short
time ago, who told mo that ho had
saved fifty dollars in ono year while
working for thirty-nino cents per day.
With equal economy thero is nothing
to hinder n young man of tho present
day from saving double that amount,
as the necessaries of lifo nro cheaper
to-day than at that time, and wages
aro uearly double.
Tho truo and sure way of breaking
down monopoly is for "every man to
aim at bo Ing himself nt tho head of
somo useful industry- Capitalists will
bo obliged to divide their business with
those who are willing to add uiusclo
and brain to their capital in order to
secure men to carry on their work.
When every intelligent man becomes
an operator no matter on how small n
scale, wo may safely invito John China
man to como over, no matter how cheap
he is willing to work. Congress will
no more havo to pass stupid laws to
drive cheap labor from our shores. I
do not expect my ideas on this subject
to make any sudden change in publio
sentiment; but it may bring out some
opinions, which will throw more light
on the question.
