WASHINGTON, I>. C. Dec. 20, 1880.
The Senate took two or three days in
which to consider the House resolution
to adjourn for two weeks on Tuesday
next, the 22d, but the delay was only
for the sake of appearances. In tho
present condition of its business, it
'would have been better to omit the
customary recess, simply adjourning
over one day for Christmas and one for
New Years, but this was too great an
innovation on custom, and if any long
er than that was to he had, one of two
weeks is not too long to enable a ma
jority of members to go to their homes,
spend their holidays and return.
The impression seems to have gone
. abroad that the Democrats of the House
had finally dropped the proposition to
regulate the electoral count. This is
not true. It is the reverse of the truth.
Whenever 147 Democrats can be found
in the House there will be a further ef
fort to legislate in such a manner as to
prevent a Vice President from deciding
a Presidential election. The more this
subject is considered, the greater ne
cessity for action appears.
F.ut it was well to stop the fruitless
struggle of the first seven days of the
session, there being no possibility
then of passing the Morgan resolution.
There has been diligent work since then,
resulting in the passage of three appro
priation bills by the House—Fortifica
tions, Tensions and Military Academy.
If a quorum had been present on Sat
urday the Consular and Diplomatic bill
would have been passed. It probably
will be to-day, and on Thursday the
holiday recess will begin.
Dn reassembling in .January, the
Army and Navy appropriation bills will
be ready and perhaps others. Unless
the Republicans shall resort to dilatory
tactics for the purpose of delaying bus
iness there will be no necessity for an
extra session. Hut the desire to reor
ganize the House with Republican
officers, and to stay here and get from
President Garfield what has been denied
them by Mr. Hayes, may induce Kepub.
lican Senators arid Representatives to
force an extra session.
The Educational bill passed by the
Senate last week and which will prob
ably go through the House, will not
soon produce a fund large enough to
materially aid the schools of any State,
but it is a fund which will increase for
many years. The importance of the
bill, however, is in the fact that it com
mits the general government to a par
tial support of the public schools.
There were six votes against tho bill—
all by Democrats. These six thought
they saw in the bill an unwarrantable
departure from the < 'onstitulional course
of the general government.
So great is the feeling among Demo
crats hero at the involuntary retirement
of Hen. Ord by Mr. Hayes, while other
officers were not retired whose cases
differed from his only because he was a
Democrat and they were Republicans
will doubtless lead to such legislation ns
will put >rd on duty in the grade to
which he has been brevetted—that of
Major (ieneral. RENO.
Governor Hoyt on Monday granted a
respite of one month to Catherine Mil
ler and George Smith, who were con
victed in the court of Lycoming couuty,
at Williamsport, lor the murder of the
husband of Mrs. Miller, and were sen
tenced to be hanged on the Gth of Jan
uary, 1881, for the crime. The respite
granted extends to February 3, 1881.
The respite was granted for the purpose
of enabling the prisoners to apply to
the board of pardons for a commuta
tion of the death sentence to life im
prisonment. The conviction of Nmith
and Mrs. Miller of the terrible crime
was arrived at partly by their own con
fessions and by the testimony of the
murdered man's little daughter.
Sc-rmtur Wnllaco ill the North Aiiittrlnm Knvlnw
Tho events and progiossof more than
a generation have taken the control of
governmental affairs aivay from the in
telligent rule of the musses unci vested
it in a power as yet formative and un
defined. Among these were the civil
war, the creation and peculiar manipu
lation of the public debt, reconstruction
outside the constitution, universal ne
gro suffrage, a plethora of paper money,
looso public morals, enormous growth
of private fortunes, and a close connec
tion of the government with the bank
ing interest. Each had its weight in
snapping the foundation of a govern
ment by the masses, and in shaping
our course toward a dillerent rule.
Whether that ruin is to he suffrage
qualified and rarefied, or suffrage con
trolled by the power of aggregated
wealth or monopoly, or a senatorial
oligarchy, or hereditary government, is
beside the present inquiry, save as they
each and all show distrust of the peo
ple, and build their foundations upon
universal suffrage, debased, corrupted
and dominated.
The tendency toward a so railed
stronger government is as manifest as
are the causes that have given it form.
It is in the nature of things for govern
ment to grow stronger at the expense
of the governed : but the plain proof
of the existence of this tendency is
found in the opinions of the federal
judiciary, in federal legislation over
matters heretofore within the control
o( the people of the States, in the
modes of execution of those statutes,
by which local rule, local courts, and
personal liberty are overthrown, and in
that ramification of executive patron
age which sends its mandates to the
extremities, and at will gathers in a
single hand enormous contributions and
unscrupulous obedience from ninety
thousand paid officials. " Executive
patronage will bring us to a master."'
A network of office-holders, bound
each to the other, wielding time and
money and power of place to pack pri
maries, dictate nominations, crush in
dependent thought and action and
subordinate local coi trol to the will of
an executive who governs in the name
of party, points the road with unerring
certainty to the end that Franklin, the
wise man, predicted. Further guide
hoards on that road are seen in large
donations of money by corporations,
monopolists and wealthy men, to sup
plement the power of the executive,
and carry elections in the interest of
an aristocratic class who dislike and dis
trust the people ; in the domination
of employe by employer ; in the
marked ballot; in the third term
candidacy ami pilgrimage on the stump;
in the national and labor organization-',
which are but over-zealous protests
against this tendency, and in that ill
concealed demand for energetic govern
ment, which has been the (undmental
thought of the opponents of Democra
cy since the days of John Adams.
The issues of 1799 and 1800 again
confront tlio people. The theories of
that day are again to struggle for the
mastery. The government ot the Re
public ia already centralized. The can
vass of 1880 teaches this. The federal
executive has been felt from the ward
caucus to the vaults of the treasury,
from the primary, to the presidential
election. A high federal ollieial quits
his place to take a nomination for gov
ernor of the pivotal state, and at once
the executive arm is extended to his
support. Marshall*, detectives, collect
ors, secretaries, and all el*e that are
I needed, locate themselves within the
j State, and its suffrage is debauched and
j its undoubted will reversed. A -utl'rage
I first debased, then corrupted, then
obedient, is centralized in its worst
i form. This is but one means to the end
I sought. This mission of the Democrat
|ic party is decentralization. Its duty
iis to restore the government of the
Kebublic to the intelligent rule of the
masses of the people. It must teach
the practice and doctrines of its illus
trious founder. It must appeal to the
i people themselves in their own inter
| est. It must preach the eternal truth
I that the individual citi/en is the unit
lin the government, from whom pro
needs all power, in whom is vested all
J rights save tho*e which are granted by
i inrn for the good of the whole. The
| people at the base, the States and the
I tederal government each supreme with
j in its sphere, is the system to which it
I looks for liberty, and it must teach
that he who looks for paternal govern-
I ment, to centralization or to empire,
j looks to despotism, '"are for and per
fect the government and it will protect
the liberties of the people, was the
thought of Hamilton. (live intelli
gence and information to the people,
teach them that it is their government,
and their interest to preserve law and
order was the thought of Jefferson.
Paternal government and vigor in the
federal head on the one hand, informa
tion to the masses and energy from the
extremities on the other. The former
gave the republican alien the sedition
laws, direct taxation, federal marshnlls
and centralized rule in 1799. The lat
ter swept, these out of existence in
1800; carried us successfully through
two foreign wars ; acquired an empire
of territory, and governed the country
lor sixty years. We must choose be
tween these two now. The Democracy
must again plant itself upon the axium,
" Governments are made for men, not
men for governments." It must he
true to the people and aggressive in its
fealty. Dominated labor must he
taught its rights and its interests.
Capital must see its safety in the intel
ligence and justice of individual rule,
and not in the exercise of arbitrary
will. Honest performance of every
governmental contract now in existence,
hut a change of policy by which the
debt shall he managed in the interest
of the people and not of the creditor;
equal taxation on every form of prop
erty ; thorough inquiry into taxation
for revenue and its readjustment upon
a basis just to every interest and to all
the people ; no monopolies ; forfeiture
of the tranchises of corporations and
punishment of aggregated wealth, or
individuals, for coercion of employes,
or the use of money in elections; our
own carrying trade made to be our own
preserve ; and a divorce between gov
ernment and banks, are thoughts which
find place in such nn issue. The cry of
a " solid south " is exhausted and im
potent lit liiKt. It has served its pur
pose. Divided councils upon questions
of admmistration have kept the De
mocracy a party ot mere opposition,
and concealed the silent approaches of
the enemy to strong government. It
will continue to be a "parly in opposition,
untrusted and untried, until it defiant
ly asserts its ancient theories and goes
to the people for their vindication.
The democratic parly is not dead.
Antiens like, alter each defeat, it arises
from the people stronger than before.
It cannot, die whilst it teaches and be
lieves in the rights of the masses. The
hour for its triumph will have come
when it boldly asserts its true theories
and ignores the blandishments of mon
ey, monopoly and corrupt power. He
whose interests, judgments, or teach
ings are adverse to the rule of the
masses will join its enemies, but in his
room it will recruit scores of those in
whose interest it strikes, or who respect
its attitude and detest strong govern
ment. The Inture of the democratic
party is the future of the republic.

Over A Score of People Perish,
I',i H ALO, December IT.
A serious fire, attended by heavy loss
of lite, occurred here this evening.
About fio'clock a fire was discovered in
the third story ol the immense five-story
building, owned by George \V. Till't, on
Perry street, and occupied by I'irge &
Sous, wall paper manufacturers. The
building is eighty feet front, by about
three hundred feet in depth, and about
one hundred and fifty men and boys
were employed at the time, the business
demanding extra help. All of the
number were at work, and in less than
twenty minutes after the alarm was
given the building was a mass of flames.
The walls crumbled and fell and proba
bly buried from twenty to thirty of the
employes. The doors of the different
rooms were hung to swing in, and each
had a heavy spring closing it, thereby
retarding the egress of the occupants.
The building was without fire escapes of
any kind. The terrified workmen took
to the windows and many of them es
caped with broken bones and bruised
bodies. Those in the upper stories,
un bte to escape, appeared for a mo
incut at the windows and then sank
back, suffocated in the smoke and
The following is a list of those known
to be killed :
Thomas Fields, one of the workmen
in the fifth story, was badly burned and
jumped to the ground. The body is
unrecognizable, being smashed to jelly,
but is supposed to be that of Thomas
John Malone. aged i.T years, jumped
from the filth story and was killed.
William Berry was fatally injured in
the head, spine and internally. He
jumped from the fourth story.
The injured are:
John Griffin, who jumped from the
fourth floor. He had his right arm
broken and was badly injured inter
Moses Maloney, leg fractured by
jumping from the fifth story.
Patrick 11 Biien, badly burned about
the head and back: bad an arm broken.

Moses Malone, brother of John Ma
lone, who was killed, jumped from the
fifth floor and fractured his leg and
broke his arm.
Mike O'Brien broke his right leg.
The following are known to he miss

Stephen llockett, Martin MeOee,
Peter S. Wander, John and James Stout
(brothers) and Jay Yoltz.
The flames next communicated to the
Fnion Malt Mouse adjoining, and also
the property of Oeorge W. Tift't, which
was destroyed. The building was throe
stories in height, sixty feet wide and
two hundred feet long, containing #2-1,-
(KM worth of grain, the property of John
B, Manning. The losses can only be
estimated at present and are placed at
the following figures: Geo. TV, Till'., on
buildings, $ 1 (IT,(MM); I'nrge Y Sons, on
machinery and paper stock, $1.10.000;
-lohn B. Manning, on grain, #25,000:
city engine house, by falling Avails,
#2,000. The insurance is estimated as
follows: Loss on buildings, covered ;
Birge's los, one-half insured, James
Ryan and John Kennedy, employed on
the fourth floor of the Birgo building,
both jumped to the ground, escaping
with only slight bruises. A small boy,
name unknown, was seen to jump from
the fifth floor, catching hold of the tel
"egraph wire, which broke, and sliding
down the wire, escaped with only s
badly cut hand. The buildings are a
mass of smoking ruins, 'lire parents and
friends ot the dead and missing ones *ur
round the ruins. The streets are full of
rumors, and probably the list of those
known to he killed will be more than
doubled when the ruins can he removed.

that some years since Horatio Ward, an
American who lived and died abroad,
bequeathed to the Homes bonds worth
aliout #IOO,OOO. The will was contested,

defended it by proxy, and won it. Just
about the time the bonds were expect

General Butler started on a yachting
cruise, leaving instructions for them to
be deposited in a certain bank, which
was done. When the General returned

the bonda were never recovered. Ho,

in the market, and especially my new SOLID PLAIN
GOLD RINGS, which I have been selling for the past
year,—the F. P. It. Ring,—which is not egualed in epmlity
or finish in any other make.
I suppose yon noticed last week the large lot of Appb
and Bread Trays—Japanese—that J had on my winters.
Well they all sold in four days, sir dozen of them, at 25 cts.
each. Two years ago they sold for $1.50, which accounts for
their rapid sale. Another lot has gust arrived and are goimf
fast. It might be well to mention the fact that lam selling
a splendid. Nickel Clock at and a good Stem Wind
Nickel I\atch for s■'*,—no Waterbury trash either.
With malico toward none,
But one price for all.
