Wednesday Morning Oct. 15th 1873
ONE of the working members of
the Constitutional Convention,
writes usthat it is almost impossible
any more to get a quorum with which
to dobusiness; .that the. convention
will not complete' its labbrs for weeks
yet, and he is disgusted With the
Convention and much of its work.
Judge Black, the ablistatnember of
the Convention, ;<resigned for
like reasons, and ()thin talk of do
ing-thv same. The - COnvention will
cost the .Ilomnson wealth :altogether
one million of dollars, and every day
the session is protracted the proba
bility of any good arising from it
decreases. Those who are responsi
ble for the delay deserve to be pun
ished by a years imprisonment, and
we regret there is no la tothat ef
fect. After . each grabbing fifteen
hundred doll irs iaddition to the
salary allowed by law when elected,
- S majority of these reformers are now
endeaioring to squander as much of
the Commonwealth's 'money as pos
sible. The reoord of absentees will
be valuable for future reference._ It
won't be long until these chaps want
office again, and. then the people can
settle with them.
TEE Harrisburgh Telegraph well
says that if the decision of Judge
Acheson' in the case of the
-Commonwealth vs. Mueller is
right, and the Local Optign
law is practically a nulity. Men
who want to sell liquor can ,set up a
distillery and brewery in every town
and sell at pleasure. The law was
not well drawn originally, and it was
amended so] often as to render the
meaning obscure in some_pitices
perhaps, but the, intention of the
Legislature evidently' was to secure
a total prOhibition in counties voting
against license. • Good laWyers in
the Legislature so understood the
law, and the decision of - .tadge
Acheson will be a surprise to most
if not ali of those who opposed
its passage, as well as those
who supported it.. If this decision
is to stand, the sooner the lair is re
pealed the better. Better 12)tve a
well regulatedlicense system, than
have distilleries-multipliej and *his
key distributed by
.the, wholesale by
ufacturerii Who are': nOt . .. 'sibiect
tio . the stringent reg,ulations -of the
license law.. •
Wn the . metnbers of 'the CPe
stitutional Convention get through
their labors at PhiladerPhia, if they
ever do, they propose to go-out two
-and two together into all the cumin
vies of the commonwealth in the ca
pacity, of missionaries instructing
the people in knowledge and duty.
It will be a grand sight to see some
of these old fossils and young foe
traveling over the State explain
ing the - work of the Convention.
They will be prepared . of course to
satisfy the people that they had a
right t'eAake twenty five hundred
dollars out of the State Treasury for
doing the work they agreed to do
for one thousand dollars each, and
that the expenditure of one million
dollars and one years time was right
and necessary.
There is an earnest desire on the
part of the people generally to see
thePe_gentlemen, and we hop t e
pilgrimage will be undertaken. The
two that come to this county won't
be neglected, and won't forget
their visit soon either.
Two members of Gen. Grant's
-Cabinet, Delano of Ohio, Secretary
of Interior, and Robeson of New
Jersey, Secretary *l . ' tie Navy are
anxious to obtain seats in the Sen

consistently. How many mmbers'of
the Pennsylvania delegation are in
that position ? there , one? If
so, the people would like to hoar

TIIE failure of Jay Ci)oke - tt
was entirely owing to the advapbe-,
client made to the Northern *Pacific
Railroad, - land the the
firm to dispose of the bonds.9f the
Railroad' s Company. If suirtoient
money could have/ been secured to
complete the road, Jay Cookii.would
have realized millions from this in
tptments: Below we Rive Ail esti
*late of The New York Tripine of
the 'costa Constructing the road and
the value*f the lands donated by
OA Government. It will not be
many years until the road is finished
and fortunes realized by all connect
esrwith the enterprise. The Capital
forti*Aailway,isi $100,000,000
$ 4 1, - 0130,000 of which were required
to - be €l:tbscribed before thecharter
was granted. Only $200,000, how
ever, were - required to be paid in.
The government granted the com
pany 47,00 1 000 acres of land esti
mated at $125,0:02,000 in value.
On this grant the company intend
ed to negotiate a loan of $100,000,-
000. As the cost of the road would
not exceed $85,600,000, $15,000,000
Would remain with' which the inter
est, on botids could- be paid accor
dingly fell - due. Thus with
$200,000 'to start, on, the company
proposed to compllte the enterprise
svthtmoney derivtid indirectly from
the, govOument..: — The laud sold
would pay for the - work, and the
company would really have all this
property: , for nothing.
ST is time the evernment would
dispense with th 4 service of spies
and informers or excial detectives,
acthey are now •.ternied. Hireing
men to betray theirlellows, to com
mit crime for the purpose of detect

izing in practice and contrary to the
genies of our institutions.:- Only
thieyes engage in'Ahis disgraceful
business, and they...only because it
is safer and more profitable than the
purquit ofltieir chosen profession.
Atitbeir reward depends on an arrest
and l convidlon, the-innocent are as

is fart of their trade; and many an
in&cent man has been ruins that
they might secureZtbe penal fol

While the latter are almost always
acquitted or pardoned, the f ormer
seldom escape. It is all right, to
hang ignorant savages, and pardon
their intelligent conquerors for the
same offences in the estimation -of
- many.--people. . The' hanging of as
many prominent white men would
have aroused the sympathy of the
whole country, and overwhelmed

tfiree hund L red and fifty deputies of
tf~e` Fre n have pec ged
themselves to support thiiiiOtfori for
the reStoialitin ofthe 7 monarchy puts
a far more serious face upon French
affairs than was generally supposed
to be : immediately impending.
With ;inch s disposition in the As
sembly, a President with no sympa
thy with the form" governMent of
which he is - tlfeleief official, and : a
singular indifference of a large por
tion of the pe - Ople, it certainly looks
as if the days of the French:lepub
lie were numbered.
THE officials soncerned are muck
troubled about the responsibility of
hanging Mrs. Surratt, and each is,
endeavoring :to throw the blame on
some one else. Ex President John
ston is on his way to Washington on
the hunt of testimony to refute the
charge of wilfully disregarding the
re/oMmpnciatiOni ratio Made' by
the court that tried her. The hang
ing was .disgraceful and it is no
wonder all connected with it have
troubled consciences.
Erxrrzn States Senator Ingalls, of
Kansas who has just returned home
denies ibe reporia - telegraiihed from
'Washington that he, while in that
city, Made itrenuoils .efforts to have
certain Federal office holders re
moved and his own particular
friends appointed instead. He says
he neither asked nor obtained any
officiall3banges whatever, and that
his visit to' Washington was for' an
entirely different purpose, being the
extension of postal faciliti4s in West
ern Kansas, and matters involving/
the. interest' of Reid* on the Sac
and Fox and neutral lands. '
