Tar. manner in which the railway
kings contrive to use the courts of New
York in furtherance of their respective
ends, goes far to sustain the imputation
that Judges are becoming at least quite as
purchasable as legislators.
TT WILL gratify all good citizens to
learn that "the Admiaistrrtion is substsn-
tially a unit upon all political questions,
foreign and domestic, and that all state
ments and insinuations that the President
and a portion of his adv,isers are seriously
at variance, has no foundation in fact."
PRESIDENT GRANT is now at Kane,
Pa., visiting General T. L. Kewm, who
was one of the officers of the famous
"Bucktail Regiment" early in the war.
It is not known by what route he will
return to the Capitol,. but' it is not nn
likely to be by
_way of Pittsburgh, in
which case his reception here will be
worthy of the President, of the individ
ual, and of our own people.
THE first Democratic nominee in Ohio
declined the unsought honor, because his
obligations to his private creditors was
• sacred. As he would have been placed
on a repudiation platform, it is evident
that he meant to be entirely consistent, in
declining, in such marked phraseology,
any sort of connection therewith. The
Pendleton folks think that Gen. Rol•
CRAM went very unkindly out of his way
to give them and their ideas a merciless
rap. It certainly looks like it.
Sox weeks ago the Democrats of this
Commonwealth appeared to be confident
of an easy 'and conclusive victory in
October. Whether they actually were so
may well be doubted. All the facts es•
sential to sustain - such exhileration were
entirely wanting. Besides, it has become
the habit of the Democrats to seem most
sanguine when their prospects are the
worst, as was evidenced last year down
to mid•summer. But, whether the con.
fidence recently manifested was real or
simulated, it has disappeared. The whole
Democratic host is dolorous enough. It
does - not retain sufficient spirit to make
even an interesting contest.
A COTEXPORART regards that provis
ion of the naturalization-laws, which con
fines the acquisition of citizenship to
"free" white persons," as taking the
Chinese immigration out of the operation
of the new XVth Article. This depends
upon what is meant by citizenship. The
immigrant .who lands upon our coast,
whether European or Asiatic, male or
female, becomes that moment a citi
zen. Political rights can only be tic
quired upon certain other flied conditions.
'The adoption of the new. Article will
itself work an instant repeld of all ex
isting legislation in conflict therewith,
and the immigrant from either Hong

except in such States as may exclude a
specified nativity. Wfiether that excln
sion would suffice to exclude .Chineire
from the suffrage, is a question yet to be
settled by the proper authorities.
TILE law-officers of the Federal
ernment sustain the course of General
CANBY in insisting that the existing Fed
eral legislation should be complied with
until legally supplanted by other condi
tions. The test•oatli is to be exacted from
the members•elect of the Virginia Legis-
Lsture. The law is positive, in its re
quirements, and the course taken by
CANnv is explicitly and fully endorsed
by the Administration, the President and
his Cabinet concurring with the Attorney
General therein. The case of Virginia
will be a precedent' for Mississippi and
It is intimated, in some partisan quar
ters, that this requirement •will n be 'disre
garded by the Virginia Legislature, mem
bers assuming the right to judge of their
own qualifications. There is nothing to
be apprehended from this. The Legisla
ture will have no leeal existence until it
is recognized by the Federal authotity as
assembled; l and organized in faithful ac
cokdonce With the provisions of the law.
Nor is it likely to suit the Conservative
policy, even encouraged and fed as that
has been by its late success...in Virginia
and Tennessee, to hazard an open con-
_the reconstruction-laws. The
leaders wile; are engineering the, present
Democraticißestorations in thole States
are quite too shrewd for that. '
The effect of recent developments, at
Washington, as to the political opinions
*of the Administration, will hardly fail to
be decisive upon Republicanism in every
THE future poliby of, the-..:oppositioix
upon the colored suffrage question has not
yet taken definite shape. At present,
they oppose the proposition in some of
the States, while in others, notedly New
York, they favor its concession. On this
question, the Democratic party has not
yet attained a clearly pronounced Nation
al status. Its wiser leaders await dents. -
;11 their Southern friends establish their
ability to throw off the conservative mask,
returning and maintaing the old ground,
upon the dogma of a "white man's gov
ernment," there is no doubt of the Dem
ocratic intention at the North, to occupy
the same position. 'But if, on the other
hand, the recognition of colored
suffrage shall 'be found to be. essential
to a Democratic predominance in the
reconstrueted and border States; the
unanimciyii concurrence of the Northern
wing of the party in its favor may be re
lied upon -as soon as the next National
Convention meets, if not before. Every-
thing depends upon, the success with
which the game is to be played within the
coming twelve-month, in the Southern
States—the North looking on without
committing itself as a body on one side
or the other, except to amuse local pre
*udices for the time being. In the mean-
time, it is satisfactory to know that the
Administration does not propose to play
into their hands, and that the Republican
party of the South, learning wisdom In
recent and bitter experiences, will cease
to encourage the Democratic hopes for the
return of the old dark regime . of proscrip
tion and aristocracy.
THE remark that "Monopoly cannot be
master long-in an open market" does
little credit to the Times' Ogacity. The
"monopoly" that has run up the price of
Coal is a monopoly by a Sew railroad and
.canal companies of the means of trans
portation between our coal , region and
the seaboard. ; . These companies, closely
combined, are now clutching the lion's
share of the' profits realised from coal.—
Why don't the Trtlune learn some•
thing about the anthracite coal trade of
Pennsylvania ? No "monopoly" of the
means of transportation exists; nor are
the "railroad and canal companies close
ly combined." Some of the most prom
inent railroad and canal companies have
been doing next to nothing all summer.
They have fallen far short of making ex
penses. I The trouble is not with the
"companies" at all; but with the Miners'
Association, which insists that employers
shall paiane•fltth of the price coal may sell
for as wages, and eoneede the right of the
miners to strike whenever Coal Bhauld
bring oily ten dollare per ton at tide water.
To the former part of this demand the
companies raise no objection, but they
withhold consent to the plan of
striking when _coal is low. What the
companies want is a constant and un
ceasing market, rather theft a high one.
At least, this is emphatically true of the
companies that mine coal and sell it.
The Tribune, in common with all the
other New York journals, has been
amusingly stupid and ignorant, for the
last three months, in its discussions of the
coal embroilment. Pray, go to persons
near your own door, who are concerned
in the coal trade, and be enlightened.
New York journals aro singularly un•
fortunate as to facts when dealing with
the men or affairs of Pennsylvania.
Take the existing strike of the miners In
the anthracite coal counties. as affording
an illustration. Not one of the New
York newspapers has done anything but
blunder and mislead its readers touching
that whole case. Only a tew steps from
their doors are the offices of the principal
coal compani'esi• and an hour spent in
talking with their managers would bring
out all the essential facts. Another Illus.
Lotion may, be had in -the war of the

Albany and Binghamton _line. The
Tribune insists that the Delaware and
Hndson Canal Company enjoys a monop
oly of the coal trade at Binghamton,
thence 1:ly canal to Utica and rail to Syra
cuse; that the Delaware, Lackawanna aid
Western Railroad Company isresolved to
break this monopoly by building a road
of its own from Scranton to Binghamton;
and that the Erie wants': to control the
coal market at Albany.
Now, the fact is, that the Delaware and
Hudson Canal Company, instead of hold
ing a monopoly of the coal trade at Bing
hamton, never has sold a ton of coal in
thatmarket. The Delaware, Lackawan
na and Western holds the monopoly, un
der an exclusive contract which, of
course, is voidable at law, for the delivery
of coal at that point, and finds the demand
so large that it proposes to connect its
own line, which now terminates at Great
Bend, with the linelt hasleased, running
between Binghamton and Syracuse. This
monopoly the Delawareand Hudson Ca
nal Company is endeavoring to break, by
the new road it is furnishing the money
to build from Carbond,ale, in Luzern,
over to Ninevah, in Browne county,
N. Y., there to connect with the Bingham
ton and Albany; by which latter line i
will, also, be,enabled to reach the Mid
land road and the Chenango, both avenues
to Central New York. The Hudson
river terminus of the Delaware and Hud
son Canal is at Rondout„ (near Kingston,)
from' which place Albany can be more
cheaply supplied with coal than by rail
directly from the rivers.
We stated:a day or two ago, that the
Binghamton and Albany railroad was a
link in the beat through route between
Boston and the west, which' was the
reason why the Erie Compiny desired to
control it, and, why the Albany interest,
that is, the New York Central, was op
posed to a movement to that end. This
link also, furnishes the shortest and
cheapest railway communication between
the a s nthracite coal fields and Boston. The
supply of coal for a large part of New
England must and will go over it, unless
its tariff of tolls shall be framed and
maintained for the especial purpose of
sending that traffic some other way.
THE INDUSTRIAL COUNTERPOISE.
The' remark that the preponderating
money interest of a nation, rio% matter
what form it may take, will, in the long
run control its governmental action, has
acquired almost the force of an axiom.
In England, through many ages, the
landed proprietors, possessed the chief
political power. This period lasted until,
through the diversification of industries,
agricUlturp ceased to embody and repre
sent the principal wealth of the whi:ole
people; and then the commercial classes
assiimed the supremacy, which they still
maintain. In the United States, prior to
the rebellion, sladEry was the paramount
financial power, and in consequence, the
slaveholders, for the long period of sixty
years, were the arbiters of political des
tiny. What they wanted they .set up,
and what they desired they overthrew,
Since the abolition of slavery it has be
come unceasingly manifest that the Rail
way represents the controlling interest
Already more millions of dollars are in
vested therein than In any other one
instrumentality of modern civilization,
and the developement of the railway sys
tems is yet in its infancy. Of the aspire'.
dons to which it is destined to attain,
glimpses are snatched, but scarcely more.
So far the larger railway corporations
are, to a considerable extent, acting in
competition with each other. They are
struggling to perfect their respective con
nections, and their struggles are doing
more practically to obliterate the old con
ceptions of State Sovereignty and inde
pendence than all the tendencies to cen-
Uslism which are the outgrowth of purely
political causes. These organizations
exert a profounder control over various
State Legislatures than was conceived
possible half a century ago; and find
little or no difficulty in shaping laws to
snit their own desires. Indeed, the de
moralization of the legislative bodies,
which is a matter of general complaint,
was produced, and is maintained, by
those corporations almost exclusively,
and is likely to be perpetuated until they
shall have obtained all they want, or
other agencies shall arise to confront and
conquer this special one.
It is conceivable that after the corpo
rations owning trunk lines shall have
established their connections from coast
to coast, that mote harmonious relations
may exist between them than is possible
so long as the existing struggle shall be
kept up. When the general' interests of
railway corporations are involved, they'
now pull together, as is evidenced in the
modification of •the common law, obli
gations of transporters of paisengers,
baggage and merchandise. These mod
ifications, largo and important considered
wholly apart from the drift to which they
belong, becomes yet more significant
when reviewed as attesting the power of
these corporations to make all laws con
farm to their necessities or caprices. If,
as already intimated, the lapse of com
paratively few years should bring about
a substantial agreement among the rail
way companies, it-would seem that they
must be able to dominate all other Utter
er s; to pat up or down whomsoever
they will in public life; and to revise the
statute books to suit their convenience.
It has been, therefore, not altogether
ithoatlatisfaction that we have watched
the power which Labor Associations have
, been Steadily acquiring pver all.aggma•
dons of capital, and in , particular over
capital invested in railways and enter='
prises closelY affiliatedtherewith. Let us .
illustrate what we mean: Last spring

in combination. They were less than
one hundred in number; but they brought
that gigantic corporation to terms inside
of twenty-four hours. Later, this season,.

grip. Vrom oneto two hundred millions

Our readers know wa do not approve
of all this Association has done; but we
do believe in workrqn co-operatitig for

tions of the compact ;are reasonable and
proper. What we mean to inculcate, just
now, is precisely this, that in, organized
industries may ultimately be fotind the
true and efficient counterpoise and reme
dy for the immense influence which has
concentrated, and must hereafter colleen
: trate, in tue hands of managers of rail
[ way and other companies.
THE Poprics OF- THE PERIOD.
We make the annexed extracts from the
great speech delivered by Senator 3forrox
at Wilmington, Ohio, August 12th, 1869 :
"What good thing has the Democratic
party achieved or proposed to achieve in
the last twenty years? Can one be named?
Since 1860 it has been a party of mere
negotiations. It opposed every measure
to put down the rbellion ; it opposed
every step in the way of progress and re
form; it has opposed attempts to amend
and perfect our National Constitution; it
haS opposed every attempt to extend the
boundaries of human rights; it has op
posed every attempt to improve, the
national credit or protect the national
honor. For ten years before 1860 it was
an affirmation party, but affirmed the
worst possible things. It affirmed the
rightfulness,and benificence of slavery;.it
affirmed the repeal of the Missouri Com
promise, which - was a great breach of
the 'national faith, and was the beginning
of the war; it affirmed the infamous doc
trines of the Dred Scott decision, by
which our National Constitution was con
verted from a charter of liberty into an
indenture of slavery; and, in general
terms, it affirmed all manner of wicked
ness, corruption and extravagance in
National and State administrations. The
Democratic party can not be divorced
from its historical and traditional charac
ter. We are 'told we should not put
new wine into old bottles, nor at
tempt to patch a decayed and tattersd
garment with new cloth, and you cannot
take the decayed, effete and corrupt Dem
ocratic organization and make out of it a
new, patriotic and honest party. When
the Democratic organization has - been de.
Buoyed or abandoned, and the members
composing it have entered into new or
ganizations which accept the results of
the war, and espouse the great doctrines
of the Republican party, and the princi
ples upon which the reconstruction of the
South is being brought about, it will be
time enough to place them in power, and
give to them the control of the Govern
ment A party that was opposed to the
Union. and favored the rebellion, can
_ never be. safely trusted with ,he preser
vation of the Union. A party that was
opposed to the creation of the public
debt to put down the rebellion can never
be safely trusted with the payment of the
debt and the protection of the national
honor. A party that loved slavery, and
desired to perpetuate and extend it over
the country, cannot b 3 safely trusted
with the protection of human liberty. A
party that hates the negro race, and be •
lieves they have no rights that white men
are bound to respect 4 cannot be safely
trusted with the protection of the rights
and priveleges of the Colored people.
"Praise the bridge that carries you
safely over." Praise the party that car
ried the country safely through the war.
Praise the party that preserved the Gov
ernment and the Union for the benefit of
our posterity and of all mankind. The
members of the Republican party have a
right to be proud of its glorious record
and its vast achievements, greater than
those ever performed by any political or
ganization in the history of the world.
Think of it—that we have a common
country, bound together by stronger ties
than ever '
growing more rapidly than
ever, with brighter hopes and prospects
than ever before; - that more than ever ex
cites the admiration, hopes and wishes of
the oppressed millions of other lands, and
that all this we owe to the Republican
party; and but for that party the Union
would have been broken into fragments,
slavery would have triumphed, and the
sun of liberty set in blood; and where
now 'we have bright and glorious pros
pects, and beautiful vistas of the future,
would be darkness, despair and death.
To triumph over the rebellion the Re
publican party had to triumph over the
Democratic party and over slavery; and
it was a triple triumph. It makes the
heart of the tree Republican rejoice when
he reflects that there is not now a slave
in all our borders, and that the foul blot
which so long disgraced our national
escutcheon has been wiped out forever,
and that this was the work of the Repub.
ilcan party, and that now there is not
only no slavery, but there are equal civil
rights for all—equal protection for all,
and that soon there will be universal suf
frage and equal political rights for all,
and that our Republic will then realize
the grand vision of perfection and great
ness which presented itself to the oyes of
And the work of the Republican party
is not ended; its mission Is not finished.
The work of reconstruction is not com
pleted;.and, although it is progressing
well, with every assurance of the most
favorable results, yet it Il i ad be absurd
to turn it over in its ottani ed state-into
the hands of its enemies, who would, at
the last moment, if they had the power,
destroy all that has been done, and throw
the country back into the bloody chaos
from which It has just escaped. There
are reforms yet to be accomplished, im
perfections to be removed, and improve
ments to be made in our grand political
system, and It is proper that the Repub.
lican party', which has so gloriously be
gun the work, should go on to its cow°
pletion. - The Republican party has done
one thing at a time, and has do ne it well.
It has advanced step by step, and will
still ,progress in the same way. Ifit had
; undertaken to accomplish eve/thing at
,once, as was desired by some, It 'would
Iperhsps, Wive fallen . in air, like the
`good, mectuutio lb* , gives , his undivided
labor and attention to one thing till it is
accomplished, and when that is done, and
well done; takes up another t.nd so goes
on until his whole task is finished—such
is the fashion and history of the Repub
lican party. And I here call the atten
tion of all refortners to the unquestion
able fact that their best chance for success
is in the bosom of the Republican party,
which will in due time take up one re
loam after another, and such as are found
to be necessary andproper will be pushed
forward to final success. The Republi
can party is emphatically the great reform
party of the nation. -
But, what, on the other band, has the
Democratic party to offer in contrast with
all this?. It presents a beggarly dish of
Virginia abstractions, bloodstained and,
spotted with the leprosy of treason and,l
political death, a record of opposition to
all the glorious things that. I have men
tioned--a record of negations,dissatis
faction--I had almost said of , mbecility.
in which.you discover not one thing that
gratifies the eye, warms the heart or meets
the approval of the judgment. History
is full of instances where nations have
been stricken with poverty of intellect
and resources, and have for generations
failed to produce any great or good thing,
but they have continued to decline until
they have gone down to the point where
there must be disiolution to produce re
And so it is with parties. The Demo
cratic party,- for' a score of years, has
been stricken with poverty of resources
feebleness of purpose, submission to s baa
principles, and has been incapable of pro
ducing or proposing any' great or good
That the Republican party has made
some mistakes is not to be denied, for "to
err is human," and neither men nor par.
ties are infallible; but they were mistakes
and not crimes, and'when discovered and
comprehended were rectified.
And is there any good reason why the
Republican party, after having preserved
the Republic, should be required to turn'
over the care and custody of it to the
Democracy? When the flames of your
burning house have been extinguished
would you employ the inctn fiery as a
watehman to protect it from fire'in the
future, or when your child has been res
cued from the waves, would you deliver
it over for tender nursing and resuscita
tion to the monster who threw it in? And
yet you might do. these things with as
much propriety as 6 now tarn over the
control of the Government to the Demo
cratic party. When the Republican party
shall have grown old, corrupt and infirm,
like the Democracy, and become incapable
of any vigor ms pol•cy or generous ac
tion, it will then be time enough to hunt,
up some new organization—ryertainly not
the Democratie—into whose hands the
power of the Government should be com
mitted. That such is not now its condi
tion, and that it is as capable of great
things in the future as in the past, we
believe. Whether it has yet been stricken
by the palsy of corruption and imbecility,
we may judge by the progress which has
been made in reform during the short pe-
riod that General Grant's administration_
has been in power. The last three years
of Mr. Johnson's administration were
under the influence and control of the
Democratic party, and were subject to all
the evils and misfortunes incident to the
domination of thatjparty. The adminis
tration of General,grant thus far has been
a glorious success`; and if in the future it
shall carry out the promise which it has
already given; will realize all and more
than its most sanguine friends have anti
- The success of Republican principles,
and of the great reforms which have been
inaugurated by the Republican party, can
best be consummated and confirmed by
preserving the organization of that party.
Should the Democratic party propose to'
s mender its organization,zand to accept
the general principles of the Republican
party, as it has in Virginia, Tennessee,
Mississippi and Texas, it would' furnish
no good reason for the abandonment of
the Republican organization or the relax
' ation of its radieal standard or its discip
line. They can not form a better Repub
lican party than we now have, and
although they may take on Republic=
.principles, yet they will take with them
so much of the spirit of the rebellion—so
much of the leaven of the old Democracy
—that their new organization will bo at
beat but an improvement of the Demo
cratic party, and likely to fall back into
all its old evils and abuses. "Conserva
tive Republicanism ? " as it is mildly de
scribed by some, if it does not absolutely
mean reaction, at least means a positive
halt in the march of progress and icom
promise with the Democracy, in which
they would be likely in the end to get
the advantage. But in Ohio and the
Northern States generally the Democratic
party exhibits no evidence of improve
ment whatever. The Chicago .Times
and the New York World, con
ducted by men -of sagacity, long ago
perceived that the party could make no
progress and stood no chance of coming
into power throughout the country un
less it abandoned its old heresies, accepted
the results of the war and should take an
entirely new departure, and therefore
proposed to the party that they should
begin the work of reform by accepting
the doctrine of universal suffrage, and
msent to the enfranchisement of the
colored men, both North and South.
But the editors of the papers, overlook
ing the lessons of history, committed the
blunder of supposing that an old politi
cal .organization, whose features were
cast and hardened in the moulds of. State
sovereignty and the right of secession,
could be reformed and mde to pat on a
new and loyal face; n suggestions
were laughed to scorn, and made no more
impression on the Democracy than drops
of rain falling upon an old moss .covered
bowlder. The Democratic party must
go on now as it is, only getting worse
and more hardened, till, by some great
political ground-swell, it shall be broken
to pieces and the fragments dashed and
ground together like the breaking up of a
sea of ice.
It will not be unprofitable to notice the
general prosperity and progress of the
country. It is advancing in every kind
of public and private enterprise. In the
State of Indiana there are more railroads
under construction to-day than at any
former peritid in her history, and what is
true of Indiana may probably be said of
most of the other Western and North.
western States. It is true there are evil
prophets, as there always will be, but the
condition of general prosperity must be
admitted by all. Towns and cities are
growing, farms are being improved, fine
farm-houses and barns are being erected,
turnpike roads arck'Venetrating through
:every township and county, neighbor.
hood; and maatiftietarea are everywhere
springing 'up with wonderful -rapidity.
The Western territories areeo.,
'Tied , and ail fast growing to t h en;
along of States; our mineral weilth ant
our resources of every kind are being
developed with unexampled success. The
recent exhibition of textile fabrics in Cin
cinnati shows what vr‘anderfutprogress
the Northwest is making in manufactures,
and what may be expected in the future
under an honest and wise administration.
It is true, all these interests were much
depressed by three years of misrule under
the late Administration, but their con
dition may be referred to with pride and
satisfaction, notwithstanding the Dem
ocratic party tells us that the country is
being ruined, eaten up and devoured by
heavy taxes and the national debt. Ev
ery department of business's prosperous,
and most are flourishing, and although it
is said that the merchants and traders
are not making as much money as they
have done at other times, yet the pros
, perity and permanency of business is es- •
tablished by the fact that there are com
paratively few failures. It is !said by a
distinguished statistician in whOse opinion
I have confidence, that there have been
fewer failures in business daring the last
six years than during any former six years
in the history of the country, and if this
is true it shows that the country is doing
remarkably well in what the Democratic
party calls its "dying condition." The
taxes can be made lighter by the, faithful
collection of the revenues and by the in
troduction of economy and retrenchment.
It is estimated that as things are now
going on in the faithful collection of the
revenue, and through reform in every de
partment of the Government, it will be in
the power of Congress, at .tis next session,
while continuing to pay larze sums annu
ally in the reduction of the national debt,
to reduce the general rate of taxation for.
internal revenue at least fifteen per cent.
In conclusion, I would advise the peo
ple of Ohio to stand fast by the men who

not by irritation' from real or fancied
grievances, or by indifference or neglect,

treasure that has been _expended for .the
preservatiOn of the Republic. '
