WEDNESDAY MOHNINO, APRIL. , II7.
GARFIELD ON REVOLUTION.
The Hook of RopreuenUtivM, we
are advised, was quite excited on
recently over A speech made by Mr.
Garfield, thorocognined leadorof thoRo
pitbliean $xt to that body, deputised
especially on this ocaaion to inform
what that party calls "the car ol the
country," why it makes opposition to
the proposed repeal by the Democracy 1
of oor tain obnoxious features of tbe
lederal election laws, devised and ex
ercised by the Republican party to
prevent free and fuir elections and to
keep it in power after tbe unfuttored
will ot tbo people would dislodge it.
As Mr. Garfield was warmly congrat
ulated by bis party colleagues, and as
the committee of his political laith
ordered 100,000 copies ot bis speech
for circulation, no loss than by reason
ol bis position as a party leader and his
present special commission, it may be
assumed thattho case which he under
took to argue could not be more
strongly put than be put it, especially
as be did not assu me to speak on the
question pending, but on tbo entire is-
suo presented by tbo Democratic atti
tude. Tbe points which he makes are
not addressed to the propriety or im
propriety of tbe laws which the Dem
ocracy sock to repeal. Mr. Garfield
wisely avoids that question. It is the
proposed manner of their repeal that
shocks him and offends the moral sense
of bis party of great moral ideas, Mr.
Garfield, to slate what he lays in a
nutshell, wants the country to beliovo
that the proposed course of the Dem
ocracy is revolutionary, unprecedented
and traitorous ; that it would coerce a
co ordinate branch ol the government,
practice a system of legislation hitherto
unheard of, and, as tbe rebellion of '61
sought to shoot the government to
death, a rebellion is now being foment
ed to starve it to doath.
Mr. Garfield may bo the biggest
man in his party and His speech may be
the strongest possible presentation of
its caso ; but we would think very
poorly of tbo Democrats in tbe Iloiise
if tbe meanest among them is not able
to unhorse Mr. Garfield by marshalling
against him plain facts to prove that
the Democratic programme is orderly,
identical with Republican precedents
and aimed at results which secure only
tbo highest constitutional rights; that
the manner of repeal of the obnoxious
federal election laws is such that Mr.
Hayes baa no right to question it with
out incurring the odium ol trying to
coerce Congress ; that similar legisla
tion has been effected by the Repub
licans time and again ; and that in
stead of being traitorous in its pur
poses, the legislation sought by the
Democracy has in view nothing but
free elections, unawed by the military
and nnspoiled by tho rounder.
Mr. Garfield says that because Con
gress will offer to Mr. Ilayea only the
opportunity to sign the repeals with
the appropriation bills, or to veto the
appropriation bills with tbe repeals,
therefore an attempt is made to coerce
the executive at tbe peril of destroy
ing the government. This talk about
"destroying the government," about
" revolution " and " utter annihilation"
of the nation, because shrewd political
management puts a fraudulent Presi
dent into a " split stick," would be
tbe veriest bosh, even if the position of
Congress and Ilayes wore as Garfield
states it, and he would be put down as
a fool for thus ranting about it. But
since it ia not thus, and ho is tborcforo
oxompted from tbe cap and bells, be
must be writton down a knave for at
tempting to make it appear so, when
tho simple truth is tbat tbo Democrats
are perfectly willing to vote all tbe
money necessary to carry on tbe gov
ernment. They will pass th appro
priation bills and add to tbom tho re
peal of tbs obnoxious laws. Thon the
responsibility will be with Hayes. If
be seeks his party's profit above his
country's good ; if he would rather
" starve the government to death "
than yield a point of partisan advantage;
it he would undertake to coerce Con
gress and to bulldoze it into making
party capital for his friends, then be
ill veto tbe appropriation bills. The
responsibility and odium of the meas
ure must rest with bim, and bim alone.
If all the dolelul things happen that
Garfield forotolls, be and no other will
have brought them on, lie is to bave
a fair chance. The supplies necessary
to the government are to be voted bim
If he cuts them off simply because bis
party cannot got an advantage sought,
it is be who seeks to overturn the free
exorcise of that Independent power of
legislation lodged by the constitution
in the representatives of the poople.
Morever, Mr. Ilayes is understood to
havt no objection to tbe proposed re
peals ; his party are trying to stiffen
him to veto them only because of the
manner of their adoption, whoreas it
doos not become the exocutive to
so interfere in the legislative branch's
business as to question how it passes
bills, when his sole business is to pi
upon their propriety. Mr. Garfiold
only characterises Mr. Itaye's own an
ticipated action wben he talks about
" an independent factor in the legisla
tive power ol the government which ia
to be coerced at the peril of the de
struction of the government.
We maintain tbat tbs Democratic
programme is not without Republics!
precedent. In innumerable instances
that party has resorted to effecting
general legislation in appropriation
bills, Bometimos to gain time, some
times to coerce tbs other boose, or put
a pressure upon the executive. The
Mew Tork JVafw concisely presents
exactly such a case as Mr. Garfield
and his party now makes hullabullo
"In 1867, Congress .inserted in
the army appropriation bill a sou-
tion prohibiting tha President of the
United States from issuing any order
to any officer of the army except
through tbe general ol tbe army at
his boadquarters in Washington, pro
hibiting him from ordering or assign
ing the general or the army to duty
elsewhere than In Washington, and
prohibiting any officer inferior to tbe
general from obeying any order of the
1 resident not transmitted through
that channel, under penalty of Impris
onment not less than two nor more
I baa twenty year. A bolder attempt
to usurp the constitutional functions of
the -cxticulive uuuU .haiUiy bo con
ceived. Yet it was successfully carried
Had Andrew Johnson vetoed tbo
bill ho would have suffered the odium
of " starving iho army" and so be
signed it under compulsion, " lost by
withholding his signature the neces
sary appropriation be defeated ; " now
that the Republican ox is gored, their
President can heal his wounds by tho
same liniment that President Johnson
had to use so reluctantly in 1867.
Moreover in 1372 &Aruld himself led
the Republican sido of tho House in
favor of incorporating in tho appro
priation bills the very legislation the
Democrats now wish lb us to repeal.
Neithor the spirit of the constitu
tion, the examplo of precedent, oor
the intrinsio merits of tho issue can
successfully be cited to sustain the Re
publican position in this slrugglo nor
to impeach tbo oourse ot the Demo
cratic party. After legislation foisted
upon it and thecountry by these sharp
practices sball be wiped out It will be
time enough to talk about a return to
tho regular order and to a more tern
porate legislation. Meanwhile tho Re
publicans may be expected to make
wry faces over the dosce of their own
compounding, but the Democrats aro
not to be dissuaded from thoir position
by the danger signals of falno prophets
nor the misleading lights of dorua
gogues. Lancaster Intelligencer.
The most of tbe ovils and troubles
of tbe present day arise from glaring
imperfections in the organization of
society. Theso deficiencies are radical
and inherent, reaching to the very
foundation, yet the remedies suggested
and applied, are only the vaporings of
quackery, which at best would afford
momentary local reliof, leaving tho
cause of the disease to work its way
silontly, ready to break out anew and
destroy its victim witb the groator
What is really required is a govern
ment based upon truth and morality.
Rut tbe groat trouble in this case is,
that no man is willing to admit tbat
he is wrong, and bo proposes a remedy
that will roach ovil perpetrated bv
others. Tho laboring man feels that
ho is wronged and oppressed, when be
sees tbe fruits of bis earnings wasted
by others in dobauohery, or used in
devising moans to still further oppress
him and make broader the distinction
between be who earns and bo wbo
spends tbo earnings. His remedies are
strikes, and riots, with arson and mur
der, or statutes eompolling the capital
ist to divido with thoso who are not so
prudent or so cunning. Tbo capitalist
makes complaint of tbe laborer who
will not tako what ho sees fit to give
and be thankful. His remedy for tbe
complaints of tho laborer which Gnd
vent in etrikos and riots and more
rigorous laws, a standing army and
severe measures generally.
iow the mero statement of the case
blows that both parties aro right in
their complaints and wrong in their
proposed remedies. We might go on
ith illuatrationsenough to fill volumes,
but this one given above is sufficient
for the purpose. Turkoy haa boon dis
membered, mainly on account of the
want of morality in tbo administra
tion of tbe government, Russia Is en
larged from similar causes. Every
European Government is obnoxious to
somo charge of oppression founded
from a lack ot tbe observance of mor
ality by its rulers. In this country
the stigma of fraud and corruption in
high and low places in the administra
tion ot the Government, bave been too
plainly fixed to admit the doubt of its
existence. The laboring classes olaim
that tho Legislative, the Executive and
oven tho Judicial branches of the Gov
ernment are corrupted by the money
power capitalists again do not hesi
tate to say that at least the Legisla
tive and in a measure the Exocutive
branches of Government are influenced
by tbe fear laboring classes and tbe
demagogues wbo control them who
possess tho balance of voting power,
in this case both are right with no
If morality and truth are the proper
basis ol Governments, to ensure peace
and happiness to its citizens, what con
fidence can any class have, either in
its laws or in tbe impartiality of their
administration, when bribery is known
and proven to exist and whore tbe
Executive is believed by threo fourths
of tbe poople to have obtained his soat
through gross fraud T
All this shows that the organization
of society as it exists must undorgo a
complete renovation in the near future
and tbat the coming man must con
vince tbe world tbat he is honest.
TUB KE W PA TENT FLOUR.
In order to make this understood ws
have to state the usual process of mak
best qualities used to be made of winter
wheat. Spring wheat yielded either
much less in quantity, or else so much
of the bran got into the flour in Ha man
ufacture that its color was intolerably
dark. , The wheat would bo ground and
then bolted. In the refuse the bran
and middlings would be Included a
large proportion ot the weight of the
Spring wheat, and this would sell more
particularly as feed for horses. Now
the best brands of flour, and the most
expensive, are mads of this very refuse
of the old-fashioned process. It all
came from a discovery of a way todraw
out bran. Undor the new process the
wheat is ground out as before. The
first result is an ordinary flour, sold for
exportation; then tho remainder Is put
upon great horizontal sioves, and while
agitation is going on there, an ingenious
system of draft is rushing up through
and carries off ths bran. What is left is
the glutinous portion of tbo wheat, tbe
most nutritious snd the moat produc
tive, and out of this, purified now by
the drawing off of the bran, we gel
our new-process flour. Tbo result of
this invention has been to maka the
poor spring wheat of Minnesota) and
upper Wisconsin the most valuable
kinds of grain. A French savant has
said that ths Invontor of a new kind of
food was greater than ths discoverer
of anew star; wo indorse this fully ,and
think ths invention here explained is
of far more importance to mankind
than tbs discovery of Neptune and
Vulcan, with" the moons of Mara thrown
in. Manufacturer ana Builder.

The legislate power 0 tbe nation
is now Democratic in both branches,
and the Democracy must answer to
the country for the legislation of the
next two years. For four years post
the Democrats bave controlled the
House only, and thus thoy merely
shared the responsibility of legislation
with the Senate and tho Executive ;
but now the Democrats can pass or
defeat any measure as tbey stsl! dv
cido, and the responsibility ia squarely
on tuoir shoulders. True, tho Presi
dent bos tho veto snd the appointing
power, but he will not veto rashly, nor
ia be likely to veto to serve violent
partisan ends, and if the country sball
bo convulsed and lis business paralyzed
afroeb and it peace disturbed, there
can be no divided accountability lo tho
pooplo, Tbe Democrats havo tho field ;
they aro to select the seed they sow,
and as thoy sow they will be certain
It would be well lot tho Democratic
leaders to tako their laliludocarefu lly at
tho outsot. , They aro not In power
to-day because the people love them
move, but becaLse they lovo demoral
ized Republicanism less. Democracy
has been tuken as an enielio by a sick
Republicanism, and it Is largely dis
trusted by thoso who aid it to power.
Tbo nation is soundly Republican to
day, as it has boon from the hour that
secession appealed to the sword, and
Democrats have boon recalled to the
authority from which tbe iiatioujiis
placed them bocauso Republicanism
became faithless to itself. Half the
present Democratic Senators and Rep
resentatives from the South owe their
scats to tbo corrupt and profligate Re
publican rulo that reconstruction gave
their section, sod that was most un
wisely sustuincdMn its debauchery by
Republican administrations; and Con
necticut, New York, Now Jersoy,
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana are
debatablo to-day, and at times elect
Democratic tickets, solely because Re
publican power has degenerated into
tho struggles of mean smbition and
grood. It was Republican perfidy and
not Democratic patriotism thai en
trusted Iho Democratic party witb theJ
power lo legislate for tho country, and
it will be bold to the sternest ac
countability for overy short coming.
Unless all signs are at fault, Presi
dent Hayes means to moot tho Demo
cratic Congress on high patriotic
grounds. It is authoritatively declar
ed that he discards the revolutionary
counsels of the Chandlers and the
GarfleMs of I be party, and that bo will
sanction all proper measures looking
to justice to all parties and all seo-
tions. Unless he is misunderstood on
this issue, there can bo no serious an
tagonism between the executive and
the legislative branches of tbo gov
ernment, unless it shall be wontonly
provoked by the Democratic leaders ;
and if it shall be so provoked, tho
country will seize the earliest possible
opportunity to restore Republicanism
to the supremacy it has lost. There
are plenty of revolutionists among the
Republican leaders, and tbey will mako
exhaustive efforts to force the majority
party into violent positions. They will
sacrifice Iho business and peace of the
country any hour if thereby they can
provoke Democracy to commit politi
cal suicide by accepting a renewed
sectional strife. They will do it be
cause it is the short cut to a Republi
can restoration, and as they have no
responsibility, aa a party, to the coun
try for the actions of the present Con
gress, they can play the reckless parti
san with comparative impunity. If
it was a mere contest between parties
it would be of little consequence to the
country, wbother or not Republican
demagoguos succeed in making Dem
ocratic fools defeat themselves; but
wben the long prostrated and yet most
sensitive business interest of the coun
try must be advanced or rotarded in
prosperity by harmony or strife in
Washington, it is a matter of supreme
moment to the wbolo country tbat
Democratic power shall be wisely and
Speaker Randall iagratefully remem
bered by lbs bettur class of all parties
for his manly stand in support of law
and right wben tbe judgment of tbe
Eleoloral Commission was about to bs
entered, and ho can now perform an
equally important service to tho coun
try by taking tbe highest grounds In
favor of harmony with tbe President
on the issues which demand immediate
consideration. It is known that Pres
ident Hayes will gladly approve a bill
restoring the Southern Courts to jus
tice by tho repeal ol the test oath tor
jurors, and that be will as willingly
approve a bill repealing tho unconsti
tutional statute authorizing the use of
Federal troops at elections. It is
known, also, that be will not approve
bill unconditionally repealing the
rederal election laws, and he who as
sumes that the country will not bus
lain tbe President in such a oontest,
is the idlest of dreamers. If the Dem
ocratic Congress shall precipitate such
an issue with the Presidont, every dio
tate to justice and patriotism will bs
on tbe aids of the Executive, snd Dem
ocratic power will be overthrown, as it
should, bo. There is every reason to
believe that the President will approve
any just modification of the Federal
election lawa, and ths moat dispassion
ate men of both sides should promptly
devote) tbemselvea to that work. The
disgraceful Deputy Marshals should
be wiped out along with tbe other sores
of revolutionary reconstruction.

THE SUrEKVJSORS OP ELEC
There will bo an extra session of
Congress. This question baa been the
source of much trouble to the country,
not thai any interests suffer by a
session of Congress, but because ol
tho hue and cry of the press against
ono. Tho question is at last settled in
the affirmative by tho proclamation of
Hayes, and oil March 18th., tbo
members-elect of tbo forty -sixth Con
roes ussomblcd in extra session at
Washington. Among tho important
measures that failed in the lost Con
gress are several of tbe appropriation
bills, and that one particularly that
touches the pockets of the frauditos,
wbo are now administering the affairs
and drawing the sulanos of tbe offices
that belong to Mr. Tildon and the
Democrat io party. This appropria
tion bill failed because of the great
and unblushing affront offered the peo
ple of tho country by asking a Demo
cratic Congress to appropriate money
for tbe purpose ot paying corrupt
party claims of the Republican mana
gers. Iu tho bill is charged 272,00.00
for the purpose of defraying tbe ex
penses of only tixty-nine tupervisort, or
an avorngo of about five thousand dol
lar! to each of thete handsomely paid
government officials, for but ono day's
sorvico In preventing tho honest Bonti
mont of the voters at the polls. This
clause in tho bill was defeated by ibe
Democrats, as the country's demands
made It tho Imperative duty of tbe
Houbo to guard well tbe Treasury,
and cloi-o some of tho largo holes
through which the money has boon
leaking away undor tho care of the
Republican party. Tbe Republicans
would not accept tbo amendment, as
their party debts must be paid, and tbo
result ia just whnt tho country has
rcaded, an extra session of Con
gress, tho entire responsibility of
which rosts with the fanatical leaders
of tho Republicans in Congress.
Tho act creating the office of super
iors of election is ono ol tbe most
tyrannical results of Republican party
legislation that has ever been foisted
pon tbe country. It is oppressive in
ts workings, and is a measure that
would only be resorted to in the
hour of peril in tho most despotic
government of the world. It de
nies tho honest sentiment of tbe
people at the pulls, and places the re-
sult of an election in the bands of a
few unscrupulous partisans of the ad
ministration, who can arrest bonest
voters right and lelt on the merest
pretexts, and be comparatively safo
from tbe strong arm of the law. It is
nn act not alono applicable to tho elec
tions in tho South, but to tho elections
of tho whole country. At prosent but
fourteen southern cities havo supervis
ors of elections, while in northern
cities the number of these officials is
fifty-five, among whom are numbered
somo of tho most corrupt Republican
party leaders to bo found in tho coun
try. In New York city it is estimated
that at the lost general election over
threo thousund voters were kept from
expressing their sentiment at tho polls
through tbe indcfattguable efforts of
" little Johnny " Davenport, and his
henchmen, who are paid handsomely
lor Just such work by the United
Slates Government. Is not such a law
a disgrace to tbe country f Each State
should make its own laws to guard tho
purity of the ballot, and every State
in tbe Union haa lawa of this nature
upon tbeir statutes ; why then should
tho United States interfere?
Tbo prospects at present are, tbat
this miserable, disgraceful law, tbat
makes you and I, or any qualified
voter a subjoot of arrest on tbe merest
pretext or whim ol somo Republican
hunger on will be wiped from the
statutes of the country. May tho
guardian angel of the Union speed the
work, and may all such reforms in bo
half of the liberties of the people,
inaugurated in the last House, bo car
ried to a glorious completion. ; The
defeat of this intended wbolosale rob
bory of tho United Slates Treasury,
and ot some of the pot subsidy schemes
of the Republican leaders, has alone
rcsultod in this extra session of Con
gress, and for which tho Republicans
alone are to Diamo, and to be bold ac
countable to the poople.
RIUUT A (J A IN.
The Baltimore Gazette says i ' For
once tbe Democratic, party in Con
gress, by its aggressiveness and de
termination in behalf of the right, is
n a position to command the respect
of the country. It was resolved by
tho Domoeratie House tbat henceforth
elections in this country should be free
from tho intervention of armed soldiers
and tbat ballot-boxes should no longer
be at the mercy of bands of Federal
Supervisors seloctod to manufacture
victories for the Republican party. In
other words, it was agreed that the
infamous political macbinory aet in
operation by the Republican party to
secure its own perpetuation should be
swept . from the statutes. Clauses
socking this end wore attached to two
of ths most important Appropriation
bills the Army and the Legislative,
Exeeutivs and Judicial and a Repub
lican Senate was asked to decide
whether it would submit to tho wip
ing out of its odious legislation or
sacrifice ths appropriation bills. True
to their instincts, tha Republican lead
ers clung to tbeir political safeguards-
knowing full well Ihoir value. Ths
new Congress will moot and adjourn
and when it adjourns thore will be no
juror s test oatb, no soldiers to vex
electors at ths polls and no voice of
the Federal Supervisor, at five dollars
a day, hoard in the land. Ot course
the Republican organs will denounce
as revolutionary the conduct of ths
Congress just closed ; will predict dire
ful results and will make a disagreea
ble noise in tbs political wilderness but
the fact will remain that ths Domo
eratie party has been once mors unified
and inspired with hope. Its reprosen
tatives have shown aomothing of the
spirit and firs whioh should actuate
the leaders of a naturally brave and
honest organisation. It has seen its
old enemy bound and gagged In th
halls of legislation. It will aoe in two
or throe weeks the Republican party
shorn ot lbs power which it cruelly
sat up by tyrannical meant to divort
tha will of the people and thus in
spired and rejuvenated it will go into
ths next battle with vim and ardor,
la lact we may aay that th Demo
eratia party feela to-jay like a pant
relreebed wiia a quart or new wins
