The President Is Right.
Certain pno:n Dot well informed are
disputing tbe legality of President
Cleveland's eourse iu ordering federal
troops to Chisago and other points,
under instructions to prevent interfer
ence with toe uoveuient of trains and
to execute the poeeset of tbe federal
courts. It is even auuouuced that Mr.
Hayes, an official of tbe Kuiijbts of
Labor, proposes attempting to impeach
Attorney General Olney for interpret
ing tbe lew in support of tbe president's
coarse. In view, therefore, of thene
facts, it way be well to explain that
tbe authority uijd.fr which the presi
dent acts is derived from section 5298
f tbe Revised Statutes, enacted July
29, 1891. and section 5!'J9. enacted
April 20, 1371. The former section
Whenever, by reason of unlawful ob
structions, combinations, or axsamblages
of persons, ur rebellion against the author
ity of tbe government of the United States,
itthull become lnij'rnctic&ble, In tbo judg
ment of the preeiuent, to euforce, by the
ordinary course of judicial proceeding, tUe
laws of tbe Umted States witbiu any state
or territory, it shall be lawful for the pres
ident to call forth tbo militia of auy or all
hta-'es, and to employ such tuna of tbe
laud aud naval forces of tbe United States
a be may deem necessary to enforce the
faithful execntiouof the laws of the United
Ktniee, or to suppress such rebellion, in
whatever stnte or territory thereof tbe
law of tbe Culled Statu may bo forcibly
opposed, or tbe executiou thereof forcibly
Sec'.io:) 5.200 is as follows:
Whenever insurrection, domeitio vio
lence, unlawful combinations, or conspir
acies in any state so obstruct or hinders
the execution of tbe laws thereof, aud of
tiie Uuited Slates, as to deprive any por
tion or cl;is of the people of such state of
nay of tbe rights, privileges, or immuni
ties, or protection, uamed in the cosititu
Umu aud secured by tbe laws for tbe pro
tection of such rights, privileges or im
munities, and the constituted authorities
of such state are uuuble to protector,
from any cause, fail in or refuse protection
of the people in such rigbts,such facts shall
be d seined a denial by such state of the
equal protection of tba laws to which
they a entitled under the eonstttution of
tbe United States; and in all such cases, or
whenever any such insurrection, violence,
unlawful combination, or conspiracy, op
pose or oostructs tne laws or. the United
. States, or tbe due txecutioa thereof, or
impedes or obstructs tbe due course of jus
tice nnder tbe same, it shall be lawful for
the president, and It shall be his duty, to
take such measures, oy the employment of
the militia or the land and naval forces of
the United States, or of either, or by other
means, as be may deem necessary, for tbe
suppreision or such insurrection, domes
tic violence, or combinations.
It is interesting to note that even
Governor Altgald, of IUinois, in whose
personality disregard for the law has
reached Us most humiliating culmina
tion, concedes that the president, under
these statutes, has the power to do as
he has done. In his telegram to the
president, on the night of July 6, Gov
ernor Altgeld admits that "the execu
tive has the com man J. not only of the
regular forces of the United States, but
of the military forces of all the states
and can order them to any place he sees
fit;" tut Altgeld thinks that under
Mr. Cleveland's interpretation of the
law it "would be an ety matter for an
ambitious executive to order out the
military forces of all tbe states and es
tablish at once a military government."
That this is a mere evasion, ia the
present emergency, scarcely Deeds to
be said. Any effort to expand sections
5298 and 5299 into Authority for the
establishment of a dictatorship would
have to receive the sanation of the
people before it could taceeed; and it
will be time to lose sleep over this pos
sibility when it actually gets la siglit.
Tbe president, ia this instance, has
acted wholly witnla tbe bounds of his
authority. He has done nothing more
and nothing less Vhsn bis duty. The
law is plain and pointed. It puts into
tbe chief execative powers adequate
to sudden emergencies and ta altos his
judgment supreme. Nothing ehort of
infallibility would better it. It it for
the people to choose inch executives as
they can safely entrust not only with
the ordinary authority sufficient for
routine duties, but with tbe extraordin
ary power necessary to eope with un
common duties, to the end that law
imd the public welfare may be cos
ctnlned Id all parts of our common
The UNW1LLINOM89 of Judge Sadler
of Carlisle to be a candidate for con
gress against Btltzhoever simply puts
on some other Republican the responsi
bility of regaining that district. It is
a task that oeglit to be done thor
oughly. To Abolish Coroners,
In the opinion of William D. Dickey,
of Newburg, delegate to tbe New York
constitntioavtl convention, the oeroner's
jury under the prtient. system moans
nothing, and be proposis to abolish it.
"In tbe country," says Mr. Dickey, "if
there is no inquest there is no fee, and
tbe result is that if a man dies of heart
disease aa inquest is held. The jury
invades the house of mourning iu the
most offensive way and subjsets the
members of tbe bereaved family to ex
amination. Under the system wbieb I
propose one competent man would
make the examination and report tbe
cau of death. If necessary the dis
trict attorney conld then go ahead with
tbe proseoutien. ''
This is the plan now followed in
Maesachnssetta and from all aeeouuts
we judge that it works very well thire.
It is less expensive, less cumbersome
and a vast deal mora in keeping with
the timet. The coroner's ofQce ie a
survival that is little less tutu farcical.
No matter how honest the coroner him
self mny be, bisofSco inevitably causes
dim to do things that have no necessity
behind them, and to charg1) up ex
penses for which tbo public gits no
adrquate equivalent iu return. If the
New York constitutional convention
can break up these abuios it will go
far toward hastening sitniUr reforms
in other states.
It must not be forgotten for an in
stant that the wtilf are of the United
Stute ie infinitely superior to the u
vrandizement of Eugene V. Debs.

Those who can add two and two
together should rrflict npou tbe
circamstauce that wbile thousands
of lneu iu Chicago are warriug
upon tbe local aud federal
courts, ia their defense of the rubts
of property, those j irors iu Troy, who,
after a fair bearing of the evideuue
against one of the bleol-stained tools
of political anarchy, senteaeed him to
death, are receiving threatening letters
aud are forced to seek protection from
tbe law. We do not claim that there
is any direct connection between the
murder of Robert Ross and the attempt
to create anarchy in Chicngo. But we
do claim that whutever tends to weak
en good citizenship iu one place is a
blow to the welfare of honest people
anywhere; aud that tolerance of crime

Something is manifestly wrong
when tbo waging of organized resist

sympathizers and active encourage
ment in t-ns community. Those who
are urgiug Chicago law-breakers ou
must not expect tbe consequences of
lawlessness there to be confined by
municipal or state or even sectional
lines. The pebble cast into tbe pool
seuds its waves to the furthest shore.
There is not a square inch in all the

It may be that we shall not feel our
share of this turbulence in the same
manner that it is being felt in Chioago.
We may be spared the spectacle of
riots, ioeendiaristn, and defiint insur

ut midnight, no policemen stoned and
clubbed, no tracks torn up and so
spectacle of bayonets glistening in tbe
stern battle of law agtiust chaos. Bu:
we shall have to pay our penalty just
the same, in one way if not in another ;
and those among us who add fuel to
anarchy's flame simply augment the
measure of their own affliction.
