iinmeiliatcly after the reading of the
journal, proceeded to consider the bill
regnlutinir the piij-, and appointment
of Bpcciui roairihuls. By the terms ol

Mr. Kcifcr was first recounizeu, and
bvlnro commencing Lis remarks, sunt
np, and bad read, the clauses ot tue
Jtuviscd Statutes relating to the appoint
ment of marshals for election purposes.
lie then paid that the Democratic
party was especially to bo congratu
lated that to-day, in the oxpiring days
ol the Ort regular session, the Demo
cratic majority in Congress have in
name at least if not in substance, rocog-
nixed tho constitutional power ot the
I'nited Slates to enforce tho laws at
elections. Hut this bill was a sham,
and it was intended for tho purposoof
annulling, instead ol improving, the
laws in relation to tbo use of special
deputy marshals ut tho polls. He
claimed that tbo law was unconstitu
tional, because it took the appointment
of these ofllccrs away Irom the Jvxecu
tivc, whoalone could make tbo appoint
ment. Ho also argued that it was
partisan bill, because undnr it a non
partisan could not bo appointed.
Mr. noilcrs spoccn was interrup
ted by a message from the benato
announcing tbo passage of tho Sundry
Civil Appropriation bill, wilh amend
Mr. Blount moved tbat the House
non concur in air of the amendments,
and ask a committee of conference.
Several gentlemen indicated that
there should be a consideration ol a
good many of the amendments.
Mr. mount sum no mauo ins motion
in tbo interest of tho dispatch of busi
ness. Jl the amciiuincnts went to me
Connnittco of the wbolo it would take
two or tbrco days to consider tbem.
M r. Cox said be desired to Bay some
thing about many of these bills, which
were passed upon by tho committee
of conference, lie referred particularly
to tha River and Harbor kill.
The Speaker reminded the House
that reservations ol points ol order
would have no ctlect il tho bill was
once sent to a conlercnco, and tbat
tho report of the committee would
have to be accepted or rejected as
Mr. Blount's motion wsb, however,
sirrecd to, and Messrs. Blount, Lly
nier, and Monroe were appointed tlie
conlcroos on the part ol tbo House
Mr. Keller then resumed dib remarks
on the pending bill, arguing that it
was a mcro scbemo to destroy tue elec
tion laws ol tbo country. This law, bo
argued, would bo a mere nullity, for
it could not bo enforced. Ueconcludod
by an arraignment of the Democratic
party for its courso for years past
Mr. Koifer tried very hard to per-
suude the Democrats to enter upon ft
political discussion, but bis cflort was
a signal failure Jn fact bis whole
speech tell flat although it was a vory
lubored effort, for neither tho Repub
licans nor tbo Democrats paid much
attention to it, and the apoukor's voice
was treqtiontly drowned by the buzi
of conversation on tbo floor. It was
a threadbare subject which bad been
discussed ad nauseam and tboro was
really nothing now to bo said on the
Mr. field followed and ollered an
amendment to strike out section two
of the bill, and to provide for the
appointment of special deputy mar
shals by the Circuit' court, under
the provisions ol the law, under which
the supervisors of elections are ap
pointed, lie argued tbat the bill, as it
stood, was crado, and it would be im
poesihlo under it to mako the proper
appointments. If tbo measure was to
nave any eltcct Whatever, it must be
very materially cbangod.
Mr. I.apham also opposed the bill
The Democratio party in Congress
was responsible tor tne making ol the
laws. But the Lxocutive was rospon
siblo lor tbo execution of the laws, and
be was entitled to have, as bis instru
mentalities, the men who believe in
the laws. It seemoi to him that the
wbolo purpose ol this bill was to pre
vent the marshals Irom appointing
their deputies. The hill should be
entitled an act to introduce strife at
eloctiona, and to divido the responsi
Diiity lor the execution ot tue laws.
Messrs. Williams and Humphreys,
of Wisconsin, also opposed tbe bill.
Mr. llawlcy then took the floor to
close the debate on the liopublicanaide.
He said be did not propose to say much
upon the merits of tht bill, but be
would discuss the eoncral political situ
ation. He had nothing to say about
a bill presented by men who had do-
niea die power of the redoral Uov
I "'e .urou at wiirctiioe.
i nil diii was only interned to impai
and weaken the Federal power, for lb
ides of repeating tbe laws outright bad
been abandoned. The Republicans had
been told that the idea ol this bill was
suggested by the distinguished gentle
man from Ohio ((ion. Garfield), Out
of the goodness and kindness of bis
grand heart tbat irentleman bad aug
gosted this, and the Democrats leaped
at tht offer. Rut be thought that den.
fiarflold's suggestion was a mistaken
Mr. Cox iuquired if Mr. Uawley
was in favor of tho bill.
Mr. llawlcy replied tbat be had in a
leeble way attempted to show bis con
tempt for the bill.
Mr. Cox had hoped that tho gentle
man would have the speech of Gen.
Mr. Hawloy preferred that the gen
tleman should have it read in his own
Mr. Cox proposed to do it now.
Mr. Hawloy No ; take your own
Mr. Cox Of courso, 1 knew you
would rofuso. That's your style.
Mr. Uawley, continuing, said that
the Domocrntic party, which brought
in this bill, bad practically doniod tho
right of the Federal Government to
use forco in the enforcement of tho
Federal laws. He then mado a gen
eral onslaught upon the Democratic
parly. They bnd at first threatened
to wipe out all of what tboy culled (he
war legislation of tho oountry. The
Democratic parly to-dny yielded only
an unwilling sanction totheThirtoonth,
Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments
to the Constitution. Ho assorted that
the party was a nnit upon nothing ex
cept the non-enforcement of the elec
tion laws. It was divided upon near
ly all the questions, and especially so
upon the tariff. In Kentucky they
wanted protection for tobacco and
homp ; in Ohio (or wool ; in Pennsylva
nia tor iron, and now that manufact
ures wore looming up in Uoorgia, tboy
would soon domand protection thero.
Mr. Carlisle wanted to make a cor
rection. Kontucky did not ask a tar
iff to protect hemp ; or tobacco.
Mr. Hawloy said the gentleman
spoko for Kentucky, but bo could not
say the same for Ohio and Pennsylva
nia. On this question the party bad
no policy, and no ono would daro to
say that in the coming Cincinnati con
vention they would dare to take ground
in favor of free trado. ' It has promis
ed tariff reform. It has bad control
hero for nearly six years, and whore
is its tariff bill? It is true it has
brought hi a few separate moasurcs,
but no general bill. Instead, it has
come on here with a bill for a tariff
commission, not to be composed of tho
men who are responsible for legisla
tion, but of exports as they are called.
That commission is to report eighteen
months hence to the Kcpublican Con
gross of 1881. Applsuse on the Re-
Eublican side Again, tho party is
opelessly divided upon the currency
question. Take the gcntlcrrren on tho
other side individually and nearly all
of (hem aro opposed to the National
bank system. That subject will be dis
cussed in the campaign, and tbo Dem
ocrats will be asked, "Where is your
bill on that subject?" Ho asserted
that the Democratio party had already
mado a formal union with the Green
back party of Maine, and thatindicatod
not only a local, but a National demor-
Mr. Hutehins Why did the Re
publican party in my district indorse
mv UreonDaclc oompotiior, wuon in
the last election 1 was for bard money ?
Mr. Uawley Well, thero was a great
tomptation to beat you. Laughtor
Mr. Hutehins Ihoy did not up it.
Mr. Uawley Tboy hoped to do it
br indorsing the other man. He then
continued his arraignment of the no
mocracy, and said they were not sin
cere in tbe pending bill, which they
bad brought iu. lu tbo una place,
Ihoy did not expect to pass it; in tbe
scond, tbey knew that the Secretary
oould not refund under it il they did
pass it, Tbo Secretary is thus let t
without the Dower ol taking advantage
of tho most favorablo opportunity that
bai offered for refunding. Ue also ac
cused the party of being without a
loreigu policy. 1 bey bad done noth
ing to give reliol to the depressed con
dition of American shipping. Ho al
luded to the large amount appropriated
in tbe River and Harbor bill. Yoars
ago tho Democrats woro opposod to in
ternal improvements, but now they
wore all in lavor "ol tbe old uag and
an appropriation. At the beginning
of this Congress they came hero witb
a solid South and a Norlhorn attach
ment. The Fall elections came on and
the temper of the Democracy changed.
They are now on their good bobavior,
and soem to bealraidto give uttcranco
to their speeches. Are they most
afraid ol Gen, Garfield, or the whispor-
ings from "Cipher alley ?" Tboy bavo
proclaimed tbat Mr. Tildcn was wrong
ed four years ago. II Tildcn was
wronged, as asserted, tnon ne it enti
tled to have that wrong remedied.
But he assorted that the Democracy
would bo afraid to ask tba people to
vindicato Tildcn. In conclusion Mr.
Hawloy argued that tbe Democrats
were without a policy on an any ol mo
great topics bclore the country. His
speech was loudly applauded on the
Mr. Cox rose to reply, and said he
would not detain the liouso very long.
Mr. Heiler wanted to bavt tome un
derstanding about this. There were
vol seventeen minutes remaining of tho
time allotted to tbo Republicans, and he
wanted to know If tha Democrats in
tended tn occur V that time.
Mr. Cox said the othor side did not
want that time. They seemed to have
run out of material.
Mr. Harris, of Virginia, said he now
purposed to call the previous question,
and then tako an hour for debate
A number of amendments wore
offered, and the previous question
seconded on the bill as amended.
Mr. Harris then said that tbe bill
makes no important chango in the
law, for it in no case IntcrTeros wilh
the duties of the doputy marshals. It
only cbangos tho modo ol appoint
meiit and requires that thev shall rep
resent both political parties and shall
be mon ol good character. The Demo
cratio parly had attempted to repeal
all theso olectlon lawt In a general ap
propriation bill and the President vo-
toed the bill. J n that veto be said he
wanted to protect the purity of elee
lions, but he objected to putting a rider
on an appropriation bill. Ho vetoed
the bill because it was a rider. In the
discussion at that time tbe great ob
jertion was that it wot a rider. No
man on tne Kcpublican tino went so
lar into the Held at to tay il was tin
fair to appoint ths deputies from both
political parties. .The present groat
leader or tbe Kcpublican party, Mr.
Garfield, offered an amendment which
was almost identical witb this bill. It
was as follows :
"For special deputy marshals of
elections, theoumof 17,000: Provided,
Tbat hereafter special deputy marshals,
for performing any duties in referenco
to any election, than receive tbe lam
of 15 per day in full lor their compen
sation ; and that all appointments ol
tuch special deputy marshals having
any duty to perform in respect to any
election shall be made by tht Judgtol
tbt Cirenit Ctnrt of the I'nited Htatet
PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN.
PA., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1880.
for tbe district in which .iuch marshals
aro to perform their duties, or by the
District Judge in tho absence of the
Circuit Judge; said special deputies to
be appointed in equal numbers from
the different political parties."
It would be observed, said Mr.
Harris, that the pending bill was the
samo as tho amiuenuinoni oiiercu oy
Mr. Garfield, llo would send to tho
clerk's dusk and have read the words
uttered by Mr. Garfield at the time.
Ho commended theso words to tho
Republicans bore and boned that they
would by their votes show as much
liborty as M'r. Garfield bad dono. The
following extracts from a speoch do
livored on March l'.Hh.liist, were then
"Thp first object which 1 try to kocp
before my mind in Initiation is to bo
right. And on this question of the
election laws, during the long and
heated sossion of debate last Summer,
in which all sorts of accusations were
mado against thorn by gontlemon on
tho other side, thero was mode but one
lodgmont in my mind of just criti
cism upon them. There was one
chargo mado by tho othor side, and in
so far as it was truo 1 consider it a
just objection to the law. It was that
tho law had boon used, or was capablo
of being used, to fill oloction precincts
wilh men of one party whose timo
might bo employed at tho public ox
pcuso for party electioneering pur
poses. "1 say in so fur as that law can bo
used to that extent it is unjust; and
and at all times and on all proper oc
casions 1 have declared, and 1 now de
clare myself, willing to modify tbo law
so that the alleged abuse cannot lake
placo. Applauso on tbo Democratic
side. That I say lor myself and will
continue to say it. No other valid
objoction to this law was, in my judg
mont, made by anybody during the
last session ol this Congress or since.
On the quostion of what I boliovo just
and right I make no compromise any
where ; but 1 do believe that it
strengthens tho election law to free it
from every ground of chargo that it is
partisan or can be usod lor morcly
partisan purposes. I want the law to
insure, so fur as law can do it, lair,
honest and peaceable elections, and I
want it for no othor purpose"
Mr. Harris, continuing, said that
no lunguago could be plainer or bettor.
The objection waB to the rider on an
appropriation bill, not to tlio law itself.
This bill comes beforo tbo House on
its naked merits and when it docs
come wo witness tho followers of tbo
great leader on the other side refusing
to do what ho says is right, llo be
lieved that instead of perfecting this
measure a largo majority on tbe other
side would be tound voting against it.
Mr. Cox said that alter what bad
fallen from his distinguished friend as
to tbe record ol tbo uoblo statesman
who was chosen as the standard bearer
of tbe Republican party, he was not
altogether enamored of this bill, lie
was a little dubious about it when it
was proponed. It rocognlr.es the right
of tha Federal Government to inter
fere at elections, llo hold witb the
Supreme Court when it docided In its
bost days tbat more wore no reaorui
elections. Uo knew that there had
boon a different decision since, but the
Supremo Court has fallen since it mado
its first decision. Ho would volo for
this bill, however, for it was a mitiga
tion of the election laws, but it does
go far enough. Ho would expungo
the whole Federal spy system. But,
as he could not do that now ho must
take tbe bost bo could get. This was
a curious debate. Gentlomon on tho

but be was satisfied now that he was

At this point tho members gathered
in the area in front of tbo clerk s uesit

They tried to appear rhcorful while
Garfiold's record was being spread bo

was a good deal forced, Mr. Carlisle
said bo desired to show Mr. Garfield's

Garfiold in 1871 on the subjoct of tariff

The spoecb referred to, and which
was made by Mr. Garfiold on May 23,
was then read as follows :
"Undor tbe law as it now stands the
supervisors themselves are appointed
by tho Courts and from the different
political parties. Now, can any valid
reason be given, on tbo merits ol the

and chief duty Is to aid them in tbe
dischargeof their quasi judicial duties,
should not also be appointed by tbe
Court, as tbey themselves aro appoint

tion ? Tho argument that these offi
cers should not be appointed by tbe
Court becauso thoy are under
the orders of tho marshal fulls to

rather than tho marshal. But we aro
told that if the special depuiios should

COMMON SENSE IN EDUCATION.
Good manners are made up of petty
Our greatest glory ia not in never
tailing, but in rising every time wt fall.
However things may teem, no tvil
thing succoeds, and no good thing it
failure. Samuel Lonoiillow.
Education should includo the awak
ening ot the child's interest in acquisi
tion of knowledge, me stimulation oi
t habit of reading not as a task work
but for the sake ol what is rcaa, ana
the daily enlargement of tho child's
store of Information of a profitable
king. Whatever contribution! (o all
of (hem is best. X. Y. Post.
A School Director of a rural town
ship in ono of (ho inferior counties ol
Pennsylvania, who describes himself
as a friend of education because he
knows the want of it, read a paper re
cently at a teachers' meeting which ia
more replete with common sense than
is usual with compositions ol tht com
mon senso than is usual with composi
tions of the kind. Il it especially in
teresting because of tbe hints it gives
us not only of the growth ol tht public
school system in that State, but ol tht
lilliculties it was compelled to meet
and overcomo. Th? school directors
of forty years ago, Mr. Wilhelm tells
us, took no interest in tht system, and a
large part of the people was opposed
to it. The (oachors were only remaik
able for their bad tongues, their long
fingers and tha boon pole punishment
they Inflicted on ine ennuren. ir. .
Wilhelm good lurther, and gives a in.
stance of a teacbor who tried a milder
discipline and was compelled to relin.
quiah his school bocause of tuch an un
heard ol innovation, "mat wat ins
beginning of a new era," says tbt di
rector ; "Hit impressions bt made re
main, and as tba victim! of tbt rod
grew np they began where ha was
obliged to leave off." Ataeonsequenca
ol the introduction of a little common
sense into the prevailing notions ol ed
ucation, inhumanity was banished from
the school room, and the public school
system became tho very bulwark of
the State. Knmitiot ceased and preju
dices disappeared. A groat interest
was taken in (be schools and a better
class of teachers employed. Now
there is no bettor school system io
any of tht St let than in Pennsyl
vania, but ia no part of tbt oountry
must tht people fail to remember tbat
common school education it only tn its
infancy. The system needs all tht en
couragement which school oflloort,
tcachon and parents can give it, ana,
it needs that practical com moo tens
which in a few yean, comparatively,
has raised tbe public schools of Penn
sylvania from what they were to what
tbey art. Then la nothing that wt
peases for which we ought to bt more
thankful than tht system of free edu
cation which hat sow btoomt almost
universal and tbt numberless blessingt
which havt been tht result of tbt sys
tem. JV. r. lltrali.
