BURNED TO DEATH.
rlVB PKKSUNS PERISHED BY TflB BURN
INfl OF A HOTEL WAKINO BUT TO DIE.
In Iho alillnem of the morning of
the IV u It., at Just I o clock, toe Inmatos
of the Tremont house, tho principal
hotel in Claromont, N. H , wore startled
by an alarm of fire, which was sent
through the house with lightning ra
pidity, as quickly followed by dense
volumes of smoke. There were forty
persons in tho house at the time, and
Mr. Deming, who discovered the tire,
al once realized tho terrible situation
of affairs. On through the corridors
he rushed, while the stifling smoke al
most choked his utterance. lie forced
in doors unceremoniously where no re
sponse came to bis loud and hurried
knocks, passed on to tho next and call
ed on all who could como forth to act
as Toluntocra in rousing the sleeping
inmates, who slumbered on unconscious
of the horrible death which hovered
around their pillows. Half a docon
people joined Mr. Deming and proceed
ed to the seoond and third floors, to
give the alarm and then floe for their
lives. The botel was a wooden build
ing, so that the flames had plenty of
material to toco on, ana out a rew mo
ments were left tor escape, terror-
stricken men, women and children
rushed frantically through the blinding
smoke, half asleep, and completely be
wildered by tbe sudden alarm ana tne
triKhtlul scene which met inem as tney
emerged from their rooms.
There was no time to spare, bow-
ever, and tbe instinct of sclf-preserva.
tion was at work promptly to suggest
means of escape. There was only one
stair-way, and that was narrow and
full of smoke and flames alter nve mm
utes, so that . it was useless as an
avonue of egress, windows were
thrown up only to increase the draft
and stimulate the flames, which were
now furiously hissing through the frail
strnoture. . Men and women jumped
to the vard below in a nude or partly
dressed condition, others appeared at
the upper windows ottering ths most
piercing sbricits lor aid in tnetr terrioie
extremity. ' it was an awiui spectacio,
and one which will never be forgotten
by these who witnessed it. The two
lowor floors were toon cleared of their
occupants, but tbe npper stones still
contained human beings whoso chances
of escape from a fiery death were de
creasing rapidly.
The town baa become aiarmeu, ana
from all sections men and women
poured in to render what assistant
tbey could or to gate on mo ternoie
eoene which was Doing enacted. ljaa-
ders were promptly put up against the
walls for the purpose of extricating tne
poor people who were bousod in by
flame and smoke. Ono man whose
room was on an npper story, crawled
out through tho window, seised a light
ning rod and coolly crawled down to
the gronnd with only blistered bands
and bruised limbs, lie waa loudly
cheered as he slowly crept down, while
men and women held their broatb lest
tbe rod would eive way and throw him
heavily to the froaon ground, wbon bis
death would bar been as certain as if
he bad romained in the burning build
ing. Mr. i II. Gibson, one of the
proprietors of tho bouse, with his wife
and child, escaped trom a window oi
the second story, the plucky woman
holding the child and clinging to tha
blind while be obtained a board upon
which mother and child slid to tha
ground in porfect safoty, followed by
Air. Gibson, who promptly re enterea
the building to lend what aid he could
in rescuing the others.
OwiDg to some repairs Mrs. Gibson
mother of tbe same gentleman, bad
been placed temporarily in a anaro
room and tbo son rushed frantically in
search of bor, but waa unable to reach
her in time and she perished in tbo
flames.
Anna Johnson, a chamber girl,
wboav room was on the third floor,
tried to escape from the ball through
tbe stain, but found a solid wall of
firs obstructioir ber paseairo. She ran
back to ber room, raised tbe window
and bung out as far aa possible with
out falling, and screamed frantically
for assistance. She was soon envelop
ed in a huge cloud of smoke, which
was occasionally lit np by flashes of
flam as tbe fire worked its way up
ward. Half a dozen bands immediately
seixed a ladder and ran itnpagainsttbi
wall. A man volunteered to climb up
to the poor girl's aid, but he came back
blinded with smoke and almost inJcn
aihla. Another volunteered, stepped
into bis place and toiled ap tba lad
der, but be, too, came down without tb
priae so much coveted. Another man
stepped from tbe crowd, and amid tbe
M.Anra nf tha aaaemhlaire ran UDsteD af
ter step until be waxiest in the clouds of
smoke which relied out in dense maaa
ea from the doomed building. He
reached the poor, helpless girl, but
could nut pull her oat as she had faint
ad. and must have been caught by
Bomulbing on the iniide, from which hi
waa snabla to deliver tier, xie name
batik withoutaoooranliihing Dismission,
aad oo one else would venture. . There
sb remained antil th wall tell in, and
.k. k..n. . .hnrwad maai amid thai
burning ruin.
About the same time Mrs. S. A.
Chase, a pastry cook in the establish
ment ; Lyda Morrill, a table girl, and
Charlea Morgan, a guest at the house,
went down with tho tumbling walls,
mingling Uioir shrieks with tbe horri
ble din and crash which provailed
within and without.
The clerk, Fred Marvin, and wife
ocoupied a room on the third floor. As
soon as the alarm leached them thoy
rushed out, and, finding the corridor
blocked by flame and smoke, closed
their door and waited for assistance
None came, and the terrible alterna
tive proBented itself of perishing in tho
flames or jumping to the ground. The
latter was decided on and Mr. Marvin
sprang from tho window, alighting on
bis feet. lie escaped with some bruises.
Ills wile followed, and although the
stunned husband and others tried to
break the fall, she sustained several in
ternal injuries which may prove fatal.
As soon us the building full In, oager
hands went to work to search for the
bodies. The first one discovered was
that of Mrs. Gibson. It was charred
beyond all resemblance to humanity,
but was reoognited by a gold filled
tooth found near by. Miss Johnson's
was next found, and was rocogmxed oy
portions of her drons not burned. Mor
gan's body was not found, but the
search will be renowed.
Tho following oscapod uninjured :
J. Kimball, of Nashua, N. H.,; Colo
nel N. W. Coggswell, of Ilenniker, N.
II., savings bank commissioner at
New Hampshire ; G. D. Moshor, of
1'ine Meadow, Conn. : Si. U. fJumnungs,
of Boston.
The building having fallon In, atten
tion was now turned to tbe adjoining
property, which was in danger, as tho
flames wore spreading. The injured
people wore promptly taken to placos
of rest and medical attendance celled
in, whilo tho firemen worked with a
will to chock the progress of the firo.
They did not succeed, however, until
three frame buildings, oocnpiod by H.

COURT HOUSE BUBMRD.
The Licking connty (Ohio) court
house, a bandsome structure with lour
fronts, standing in tho centre of the
public sauaro at Newark, and just fin
ished at a cost ot zuu,ow, caugni ure
in the oopola from ages ict which was
usod to illuminate the clock, at twelve
o'clock Saturday, and burned down to
the second story. Tbo building is in
sured for $20,000 only. Almost all of
the Important oounty records are saf.
Th militia are on amy, guaruing tne
county properly. Great excitement
prevails among tbe citizens ana a largo
number ol country pooplo are stopping
in town. A lad named Kramor and a
man named Smythe wor badly injured
by falling timber.
THE MULE.
The mulo la the only animal that
Noah didn't take into tho ark with
bim. I have looked ovot the freight
list carefully, and could not ae a mule
way-billed for any place. So clear
headed a man as Noab did not dare to
tak one on board, aa he knew he
would kick a bole through her in loss
than a week. 1 don't know a man on
who bead you could pour quicksilver
and run lesa risk nf spilling it off than
on Noah's. He was a dreadfully level-
hoaded man, and before tbe rresbet
was over everybody on earth realised
the fact.
Tb origin of tb tnuU ia enveloped
in a good doal of mystery. Tradition
informs ns that when the flood bad
subsided, and the ark had laid on
Mount Ararat, Noab was very much
surprised in one ot his observations to
find a good, healthy mule standing on
tb top of ao adjoining mountain. Tb
same tradition informs ns that th mul
ia the only animal tbat lived through
tbe flood outside the aik.
The mule can be considered in a
good many ways, thoagh th worst
ptar to consider Dim as uirecuy irora
behiud, anywher within a radius ot
tb feet. I never consider a mule from
tbat point unices 1 am looking out
through the flue ot a boner. ,
Tb word mule come from the
Greek and signifies "to stop," and the
mul himself comes to a slop also.

You may study your arithmetic and

but you can't discover why that is

Tbo mule has one moro leg than a
milking stool, and be can stand oa one
and wavo the other tree around in as
many different directions. He has only
thruo senses, boaring, seoing and smell
ing, lie has no more sense ot taste
than a stone jug, and will eat anything
tbat contains nutriment, and ba don't
care two cents whether it be ono per
cent, or uinoty-nir.o. All he asks is to
pass him along his platu, with what

It 1 were to have a large picture of
innocence to hang up in my parlor, and
I did not wish to sit for myself, I
should get a correct likeness of a mulo.
There is innocenco enough depicted in
a mule's countenance to fit out a Sun
day school class. It looks as guileless
as an angle worm.
A mule never grows old or dies,
Once brought into existence he con
tinues on f'orover. The original mulo
ia now alive somewhere in tho South,
and ia named Robort Toombs, secause
be is so stubborn.
Mules are chiefly found in the South
and West. They have been mors abus
ed that Judos Iscariot. A boy who
would not throw a stono at a mule
when be got a chance would be con
sidered by his parents too mean to
raise.
The mulo is a good worker, but he
cannot be depended oir. He is liable
to strike, and when a mule strike, hu
man calculation fails to find out any
rule by which to reckon when be will
go to work again. It ia useless to
pound bim, tor he will stand more
boating tbun a sitting-room carpet.
Ho bus beon known to stand eleven
days in one place, apparently thinking
of something, and then start off again
as though nothing had happened.
Down South, when they have a sur
plus of small darkies on tho plantation,
they send them out into the barnyard
to play wbero thora is a loose mulo.
Thoy always bid them good-by when
thoy start out, for they are sure the
parting will be final. This is tbo most
economical stylo of funeral now in tho
market. . ,
To fully appreciate tho mulo one
should hear bis voice. You can never
really know whether you like a mule
or not till you have heard him Bing. 1
attended a mule concert at Fort Shell
ing. The programme opened with a
Boprano solo, and then swung into a
duet, and then pranced off into a trio,
lollowad op by a quartet, and ending
with a full chorus of one hundred and
fifty mules. I didn't bear the whole
thing, for when I came to the rogi
mental surgoon was standing over me
giving ma powerful restorativos, and I
beard, him say that I might possibly
ot out agnin, though 1 never would
o a well man again. I have been
through tho New York Stock Ex
change and spent part of a day In a
boiler factory, and nave been on one
or two Sunday school excursions for
children, but I never knew what a
noise was till 1 beard a lot ot army
mules bray.
One of the doad certainties about a
mule ia that he ia sura-footed, especial
ly with bis bind feet. He never mis
places them. If ho advertise that bis
bis feet will bo at a certain spot
at a certain time, with a sam
ple of mulo shoes, to which ho
would can your attention, yon win al
ways find them there at the appointed
time. He is as reliable aa the day of
judgment, and be never cancels an en
gagement. Avery man now living
wbo drove a mule team during tne
war draws a pension. ' 1
I savor owned a mulo. . 1 came near
buying one onoo. He was a fine-look
ing animal : bis cars stood np like the
side spires on an Episcopal church
His tail was trimmed down so that it
looked like a tar brush loaning up
against bim. . He waa striped off like
the American ftsg, and itapbaols
c reruns never looked moro angelic than
did that mule. Ho looked all inno
cence, though be was so in no sense,
The owner sat in the wagon, with hie
chin resting on bis band and his elbow
on bis knee. In tbe other band be
held a stick with a brad in tho end of
it. I examined the mule and asked the
man a few questions, and, out ol more
form, inquired it tho mule was kind, or
il be kicked. , "Kind? kick?" said the
man, and those woro the last words be
over uttered. He reached his slick
over the front of the wagon, and stuck
tha brad into tbe mule, it waa awtui
to see a man snuflcd out aa quickly aa
he was. It almost took my breath he
went so suddenly. 1 never saw the
thread of lifo snap so abruptly as it
did on tbat occasion, no aiun t nave
time to send a message to bis family.
That mulo simply ducked his bead,
and then a pair of beds flow out bo
hind ; there was a cTosli, a flying ol
splinters, and that was all; the next
moment mat muio ana myseii sioaa
alone, my face covered with astonish
ment two fuel deep, and his covered
with part f an old bridle. The next
day I read an account in the tele
graphic news of shower of flesh in
Kentucky. I was tho only man that
could explain that phenomena, and I
did not dar to lest l snouiu oa impli
cated in the affair with tb other mulo.
I have aeon death in many, forma,
but don't recollect of more pomp ana
disnlav than on that occasion. If 1
had my choice to either work in a
nitro glycerine factory or take car oi
a mule, 1 should go tor tbs factory, as
in case of an explosion there would be
more possibility ot my friends finding
some little mementoes of m with
which to asauago thoir grief. A Tory
small pice of m woald lighten a very
big sorrow.
I will bunt round and if I find any
other facts that belong to tbe mule, I
will send them to yon by express,

REPUBLICAN,
POSTOFF1CE DEPARTMENT
ROBBERIES.
i i ' UOW IT HAS BEEN DONE. -
No Department ot the Federal Gov
ernment ib so useful to tbo millions as
tho I'ostoulco patron ixed by all yet
it is always bankrupt. However, since
tb Democrats have obtained control
of Congress, and takon an Inside view
of bow things are done, soma light is
being thrown on tbe tbelts committed
by Department rings.
In the last days of the late Congress,
Mr. Money, of Tennesseo, in a speeoh
in tbs House, made some interesting
and suggestive disclosures concerning
too mannor in which the mail route
letlings are mado by the postofllce de
partment. Everybody knows that the
administration of tbia department for
many years baa enjoyed a reputation
for corruption in which it bas only
been rivalled by tbe Interior Depart
ment. Its ovll repute culminated when
Postmaster General Crcsswell was in
charge, and when tbe praotlce of straw
bidding was at its height, Under that
system irresponsible dummies bid low
prices in tbe interest ot tbo favored
parties who put in their offers at high
rates, and who finally secured the con
tracts under the manipulation of the
department and through tbe failure of
the dummies to meet ltd requirements.
By various devices and with many
twi?'.lngs this general plan of opera
tions was so conducted as to he nearly
nniformly successful in putting tbe
contracts in the bands of those who
bad offered to do the work at the high
est prises ; and it is not to be supposed,
and never ,bas been imagined that the
officials of the Postofllce Department
did not profit largely by the profitable
issue ot these base combinations with
the contractors.
This plan of milking the department
was so thoroughly exposed alter the
Cresswell administration that it seems
to have boen given np for another that
is just as profitable, quite as efficacious,
and a good doal more ingenious. Mr.
Money makes the first exposure of it
that wo have obsorved. The adver
tisements of the leltings state a certain
number of trips to be performed in a
specified time over each routo. But
the depaitmoot bas the power to
change the. torms of the contract, by
increasing the number of trips, or de
creasing tho time in which thoy are to
be made, or by doing both.
It ia not dillicull to bo trow it can
cbango an apparently onerous con
tract into a very profitable one in tins
way, since of courso increased service
requires increased payment. The law
says that when the speed is expedited
tho increased pay shall be in the origi
nal pay as the increase of stock nood
ed to do the work is to tbe slock need
ed to do it under the original contract.
And when the number of trips aro in
creased the law provides that the pay
may be Increased in proportion to tbe
increased trips. These provisions are
sufficient to protect tho contractor and
tho government if they are fairly car
ried out; but no one needs to be told
that a dishonest or careless adminis
tration of tbo postofHo department
can result in great injustice to tb gov
ernment in making these charges ot
contract ; and wbon we find that an ex
amination of many or them wbich have
been made, shows that the contractors
bave been unduly profited at th coat
of the governmout, we have right to
concludo that tbore has been collusion
between the contractors and the post
ofllce officials, and to suspect that tbe
department is as much a don of thieves
now as it bas ever beea.
Mr. Money mentions in detail two
caseB out ol many that be bas detected
ono being in a long and cosily routo in
Texas and Arizona, and one, a little
thino- inst aerntm Lha border in Marv.
land. The first Is from Fort Worth,
Texas, to Yuma, Arizona, to run from
July 1st, 1878, for, four years, l.DbO
miles, soven times a wcok ; timo, sev
enteen duys; compensation, $131,000
per annum. A month anor it com
menced, on August 0, 1878, iiraay,"
Assistant Postmaster General, indorsed
on it an order decreasing the time to
thirteen days, and giving tbe contract
or 11(15,000 additional pay per annum.
lie says in bis certificate that this
additional compensation is less than
what is warranted by tbo law, but wbo
will believe tbat H oosts more than
twico as much to carry the mails 1,&00
miles in thirteen days as it did to car
ry them that distance in seven toon
days? It was slow tim even at the
tasteet rate, only amounting to a speod
of five miles an hour. T he previous
history of the routo shows the depart
ment's guilty manipulation of It. A
part of it. trom Mesilla to San Diego,
was lot in 1870 for $124,000, served
twice a wock. The speed was increas
ed and th scrvioo raised first to three
time and next to aoven time a week,
and the pric increased to $218,460,
In 1874 it was again let, the trips be
ing reduced in the advertisement of
the routo from seven to three a week.
The contract was taken at $55,000.
Shortly afterwards th trip war once
moro increased to seven a week, the
time oxpeditod and the price raised to
$233,333. Then camo the letting of
last year, when the number of trips re
malncd nnchshged, but th time was
increased only to bo decreased again
alter a month bad gono by. . ,
It is not possible, to acquit the de
partment of criminality in tbia hide
and seek playing with this rout ainoe
1870, unless we credit it with an in
tensity of lucfficicocy aud stupidity
which is Soareely human.".' It seems
teo apparent that a favored cor. tractor
had an understanding with some one
in the department which assured bim
of such favorable changes In bis con
tract as enabled him to bid for it at a
price which would bo aur to get it.
Mr. Money's facta were obtained in
tbe course of an investigation of those
matters by bis committee; and It was
further testified before them by ona of
th sub-out i actors in this routo that
instead ol being 1,560 miles long it was
only 1,414. Tbo .Maryland route, he
instances, is lrom Edgewood to Del
Air, botwaoa which place each week
twelve trips and two half trips are run
bv the mail contractor.
The distance is eleven ana a nan
mile. ' For carrying -the mails over
tbat route and six miles beyond th
oontrattor received $770.00. Tha time
between hdgwood and JSol Air was
three hours, but Del Air wanted Its
mails brought more quickly. It had
thre mails dally, bat not anhaturally
its people thought that three hours
was very slow time over eleven ana i
hall miles. Tha beat men in tb ooun
try signed a petition for increased
speed : and the department gave th
contractor $1,070 additional a year for
doing the eleven and a half miles In
two boors. ' There may not bar been
a steal in this ; an would think it was
too small to afford a pric that would
buy aven a postofllc conscience ; but
who will defend its propriety ? . Th
contractor swore to it, It h aald ; bH
what a credulous fellow It must have
been who believed such an oath I
It was "Brady" who did it. Brady
believed thut it cost moro than twice
aa much ta travel 1,560 miles in thir
teen hours as it did to get over it in
Boventoon ; and moro than twico as
much to travel eleven and a halt miles
in two hours aa it did to go tbe same
distance in three hours.
Credulous Brady I Ho seems to have
had all these contracts to manipulate ;
and ho ia the Brady who went to
Florida to see to a fair count there for
Hayes ; and this ia tho same Brady
who turned up in possession of the
stolen ciphor dispatches that Morion's
committco had received and pretended
to return. Evidently Brady is a man
of parts, and ii ha does seem in some
ot theso transactions to have beon very
stupid indeed, possibly it was only so
in seeming, and that tact Brady is
mora knave than fool, Laneatter In-telligencer.
IN EL UENCE OF MIND ON MIND
Experience has shown that, by an
effort ot the will, tbe thoughts of one
mind may be impressed upon that of
another, that the emotions, tho joys,
and tbe Borrows of tho directing, con
trolling mind of tho one, may become
the subject ot consciousness in that of
tbo other without any visible exterior
communication. Not only is this tbe
case where tbe mental condition of the
recipient has beon rendered highly sen
sitive through mesmeric or other in
fluencea, but even in tb normal con
dition it is equally true. There aro
but few men, perhaps, competent of
continuous thought, who have not fre
quently found, during periods of pro
found mental abstraction in tho pres
ence of others, tbat tbeir thought were
indentical with those of their neighbor,
although no words may have passed
between them, nor had theso common
thoughts any connection with the cir
cumstances immediately surrounding
them or with any previous conversation.
Tho question, we think, bas been fairly
stated ; bow then aro wo to account
tor these extraordinary phenomena ?
Can we find any rational mode by
which this transference of thought can
be satisfactorily accounted for? Tbat
it is done through tho agency of natur
al laws no ono man will doubt. Physi
cally speaking, we know that action
and reaction are fatal ; may not this
law obtain in our mental operations ?
It this hypothesis should bo assumed
to be correct, it might bo observed that
no man's thoughts would be exclusive
ly bis own, and thus tho businoss, tho
interests, and pleasures of life would bo
seriously deranged. Fortunately, tho
conditions fuvorablo for this transfer
ence of thought are in by fur the great
est number of cases wauling, and thus
no serious inconvenienco is tell either
n public or private affairs. Th fact,'
howovcr, that theso cases aro rare and
exceptionable, is no more evidence
against their oxistenco, than tho fact
that it doea not thunder and lighting
every day ia evidenco against the oc
curence ol thunder ana lightning, in
fact, all tbo phenomena of nature do
pends upond conditions. Take your
healthy, vigorous plant from Its bath
of sunshine and moisture deprive it
ot both ; see bow quickly it tades and
dioa. One of tbe necessary conditions
for the existence ol man upon this
earth is a proper supply ot oxygen
even lnnnimato nature cannot exist
without conditions ; beat, light, and
electricity depend upon oondition and
aro mutually convertible. Winds and
storms, rain and snow, dearth and
floods, depend upon conditions. Vt bat
then aro tbe conditions by which mind
may operate upon mind in oonsequence
ol a mere determination of th will ?
This is not tbe placa to show, as it
has boon shown, and that abundantly
proved, that all tho shades and variety
of colors in this beautilul world of ours,
are due to' the length of these same
tuoral wave. In order, however, to
assist tho Imagination to form some
conception or tho possiblo relation bo-
twoeu light, beat and thought. I will
take a particular example lmaginea
but bloom af iron, in one of our rolling
mills, radiating its beat in all directions ;
bow do wo bocomo conscious ol tho
heat and color of this mass of iron?
This heated bull is tbo state of intense
molecular agitation ; this molecular
agitation acting upon the other which
surrounds it upon all sidos produces
r.thorcal waves, those waves strike up
on our bodies and produce to us tho
consciousness of heat, falling upon the
eye they givo us the conception of
color, if then, the vibration of an in
animate mass acting upon tb Ether
can give us conception ot color, why
may not tbe moculur motion of the
brain during tho process of thinking
and acting through tbis sumo medium
of colors communicate to ns the
thoughts oi another? ... ,i .
W bat resemblance is tbore between
tho modo in wbicb we becomo consci
ous of light and heat, and that of receiv
ing tho montal impressions of others ?
In the consideration ol this question
we aasunio that tbo dynamical theory
of heat, and the unadulatory theory of
light are true, as they have not only
accounted for all known phenomena,
but bave predicted the unknown, which
subsequent research baa shown to bo
true. ...
What is light and beat? Tha motion
of tho nltiinato particles of a heated
body. How do wS become consciouB
ot light and heat ? By the dostraotioa
of the Ktberoal wave set ib motion by
the swing ol tbe ultimate particles.
Wo become conscious of light through
the destruction ot these wavos by our
organ ol sigut, ot beat, by tbe break
Ing of those waves upon our bodies. A
few words ot explsnation to the un
scientific reader raay hero be nccoasary.
The htber relerred to above is suppoa
ed to bo a substance of almost infinite
tenuitv and elasticity, that not only
exlonds through all ISpaco, but as ex
periment has proved, even surronnds
ta very molecules of matter.' Our
consciousness of lb existenoo of the
molten masses of iron io our puddling
liirnacus, the light and warmth OT the
sun, the light ot tha fixed stars is duo
to the same causo by th andnlationa
ol tbia Ether act in motion by tbe vib
rations, or rattier oacilations ol these
boated bodies.
Doea then tho law of Action and re
action apply to mental as well as phys
ical phonomcna? '
The spectroscope ba Informed us,

kind,-of tb eiiBtonos of Iron aad

lishing the identity of the material com

, POLITICAL LEQIHLJiTlOS.
Th New York Nation, whil depre
ciating; tba repeal of tb law providing
for the appointment ol federal super
visors of elections, oonfiued to duties
of obaervauou merely, and without
lowers of arrest, justly observe tbat
t i absurd, however, to stigmatiai tb
movement in favor of repeal as "revo
lutionary." Whatever legislation ona
Congress may adopt a subsequent Con
gress may repeal. It ia no more "rev
olutionary" for Democrats, when lo a
majority In both bouses, to repeal any
of tbe legislation adopted by Republi
oana when thoy were in power than it
was "revolutionary" for tb Republi
can to mart H.-"ior are-tha Repub
licans, as the Nation points out, In any
Eoaition to Had - much fault with tb
lemocrat, If, all other means failing,
thoy should tack the proposed measaro
of repeal on to aoin of tb mora im
portant appropriation bill, with a view
of compelling tha President to girt bis
assent to luem, or sis assume in re
ponsibility of blocking th wheels of
government It waa by just such tac
tics, the A anon remind iu iuipuouoan
rcadors, that some oi th more ob
noxious laws wbicb tha Democrats are
now Booking to repeal were forced
through Congress aa"ridra,"orassnd-
menu tacked on to appropriation or
other billa to which they were not ger
mane. . Tb original provisions for th .
appointment of supervisor and special
deputy marshals to serve at flections,
ill be lound in tb bill and out Mo
tions of th act ol July 14, 1870,
which is entitled "An act to amend tb
naturalization laws and to punish
erimes against tb aame." - Th pro
vision wbich authorized the appoint
ment of supervisors in congressional
district ouUHd of eiuea ot 20,000 in
habitants was engrafted as an amend
ment on the "civil appropriation bill"

Undoubtedly th true course ia that
rhich Senator Beck, of Kentucky,
foreshadowed would be taken in bi
remarks to tb Senate oo tha last day
ot last session, viz., to present to the
President as distinct and independent
measures th repeal of tb teat oath
and disqualifying sections of the lie-
vised Statutos relating to juries In tb
United states courts, and ot so much
of the statutes regulating the conduct
of elections for Representatives in Con
gress and electors lor rrosident and
Vice-President as the two houses may
be disposed to insist upon. It tha
President should veto these bills it
would then be time enough to adopt
tho alternative plan of attaohing them
as amendments to tha appropriation
bills, in regard to tb test oalb ana
jury law thereougbttobe,and we pre
sume there will be, no serious difficul
ty. It would be indeed a strange ano
maly il men who actively participated
in the rebellion can as Senators and
Representatives help to make laws for
tbe whole oountry, and yet as jurors
disqualified to enlorca them. A mora
curious spectacle still would be tbat oi
an ex-officer of the Confederate army
sitting as a judge in a United Slates
court, while any one who had given
him "aid and comfort while In arms
against the government should be ex
cluded from serving as a Jurer in bis
court
With respect to tb federal election
laws, the provision for the appointment
ol supervisors, one from each party, to
be present at tbo elections, to watch
the proceedings, to Inspect tha ballot
box and to verify the count, may be
considered much less objectionable and
fraught with much Iobb dangorous con
sequences than the usurpation of th
police powers oi th States on days of
Congressional or Presidential elections
by an army ol deputy marshals. 1 be
deputy marshal business is of doubtful
(onstitutionality and dangerous prece
dent The prohibition of the presence
and use of the federal troops at ths polls
is another measure of repeal which ia
in entire accordance with tb beat tra
ditions of English as well aa American
liberty. These are tha important ques
tions which will engage the attention
of Congress during the extra session of
tbo Forty-sixth Congress, and to th
consideration of which, it ia assumed,
its time will ba chiefly given. There
ia little in th appropriation bills them
selves that is likely to give rise to re
newed discussion or create any neces
sity for a long session. Lot its bop
that a spirit oi conservation, or wis
moderation and patriotism will so eon
trol lha action of tbe opposing parties
that the graver constitutional questions
involved may ba met and disposed of
without unnecessary delay, and with
out detriment to tbe interests of the
country.
