There are now on the table; of the Lower
House of Congress no less than 'two ' hun
dred bills awaiting the action of that body
which have already been passed by the
Senate. The delay on the : part of the
House is occasioned by a systematically or
ganized plan on the part of the Democratic
members to defeat certain legislation; by
delay, that is advocated by the Republicans.
Notwithstanding the vast numbers of
foreign emigrants arriving at Now York,
applications are received by the authorities
in charge there for more laborers from all
parts of the country than Can by any poisi
bility be supplied. Theso are largely from
industrial concerns but a very considerable
number are asked for by the farmers in the
western States, where farm labor is always
scarce and in demand.
The struggle for the admittance of Dakota
as a State, has become, as might have been
expected, one of the most exciting issues of
the present Congress. As its admittance
would add two Republican Senators to the
Senate and two Republican Electors to the
Electorial CoUege, the Democratic Con
gressmen are, solid against its admittance.
It goes for nothing with them that the
Territory wants to become. a State, and is
entitled to become one.
it is announced that the Sub-Committee
on Banking and COriency has decided to
recommend the suspension of silver coinage,
which is now compulsory under, the terms
of the Bland bill. The laying , llOwn of a
luid and fast rule that so; riaani dollars
shall, regardless of circumstances or conse
quences, be coined every month is:in itself
indiscretn, and as the accumulated
supply of \ Bland dollars is already very
much in excess of the demand, there seems
to be every reason why the operation of
the law which makes its production com
,pulsiry should be suspended in compliance
with Secretary 'olger's suggestion.

The , people of this country regard the
coal mining bufiness of Pennsylvania, •both
anthracite and bib:min' °nil . ; is something
really wonderful, and yet, when we compare
it with tbe English trade- in coals, ours
dwindles into 'comparative insignificance.
The out-put of the English mines, as the
official report shows, for . the year 1881 ag
gregated the enormous quantity of 154,-
• 182,300 tons,' while the Pennsylvania pro
' • 'duct, including both varieties, was only
43,083,838; of this amount 27,545,781 tons
was anthracite and 15,540,057 was bitum
' inous. • The whole number of employes iri
and about the English mines was 493,477,
and in the Pennsylvania mines 100,093.
Time otit of mind New York City, has
..been identified hi the public thought with
an Irish Colony. This nationality it is
generally believed, are a majority of the
voters, not the inhabitants, yet the
recent mums tables reveal the surprising
fact that 'of tbo 1,`:00,000. or 1,300,000
people making up .the city's poptdatk7n,
hardly a good sixth are. Irish. The figures
are: Native born, 727,629; Irish, 198.595;
German, 153,4E*;, English, . Italian and

during the past month is 250, and it is
anticipated that the increase this - year' wilt

several years past has been 150.
Patties are too closely balanced in this
State to adMit of division: It is well for
Republicans to advocate their special favor

sanction the seleCtion, of worthy 'and well
considered nominees, there remains the
possibility of defeat.

Ex-Governor Curtin,' who i is now in
Congress as a Democrat, was brought to
grief one day last week through superser
viceable devotion to his new love. He
declared that the Democrats shad been as
loyaLas the Republicans through the re
bellion, and that all had been loyal in Penn
sylvania, when Bruman of Schuylkill '
ministered a stunner by questioning , the
Governor whether he had not sent troops
into Schuylkill county in .1863 to put , ' down
the "Fishing Creek Rebellion;" and Mr..
Miller reminded him of the fact, that when
the rebel,army was invading Pennsylinnia
a Democratic Convention at ,Earrisi' nrig
was declaring the war a failure and ad
vising a cessation of hostilities on any terms.
The Governor evidently realized that his
memory is bad and subsided. Since 'the
Governor deserted the Republican party he
seems never to essay a--,movement in .:poli
tics that he does not "put his foot in it."
There is a vast difference between
political, leadership and political dicta
torship. To be an 'accepted Political
leader a man should be poismied of
such recognized eminent ability for . states
manship that the people will delight to
acknowledge him as their representative
and leader. Such a man will have n' com
mendable pride in "responding to and re
specting the wishes of his constituents. A
mutual confidence will ever be maintained
andyed between them.
jo • r
A man with a modicum of brains, t h rough
the power of money and other fortunate
surroundings, can be a manipulator of
political Undercurrents - and by "Ways that
are dark and tricks that are vain," gather
to his support a set; of trained lieutenants
distributed•over his State, and become 'for a
time, a political dictator with an established
'dynasty, without the first elements of states
manship or qualities that fit him for leader
ship. Such a man may maintain his hold
and control his party for a time, but an in-
teUigent•constituency tires of this kind of
dictatorship and refuses to follow it. Just
this latter condition is what is the matter
with. the Republican politics in Pennsylva
nia at the present time. The: majority of
the party desire a leader and not a dictator.

'Elsewhere in this issue we give the
proceedings, briefly, of, the Conference
had between committees r4oresentip_g
cans, held at
,the Continental Hotel, in
Philadelphia, on Saturday and Monday
last; and the full text of the report of
the - Conference as unanimously adopt
ed. - The late hour at which the report
reached us precludes our speaking of it
this week at that length which we de
sire to do. But, in common with all
true RepubliCans, we sincerely hope
that the labors of the . Conference may
not have ,been in vain; but thak its ef
forts to restore united action to the
party, and harmony within its organi
zation, may prove eminently su:lceisful.
We have faith to believe that Stich will
be the 'fruits of its labors. That we
are iot:alone in this faith is evidenced
by the following. article taken froinAhe
Philadelphia Press :of Tuesday morn-
ing :
" The Peace Conference is a success.
It has reached a practield and gratify
ing conclusion. It does not in itself
secure peace, but it opens the door and
points the pathway. With sagacious
action following these wise counsels, we
have the oppbrtunity fora united and
triumphant party. • -
"The unanimous agreement of the
Stalwart and Independent Committees
upon the Independent principles is in it
self an immense gain. It carries moral
power and will harvest practical' fruits.
The measures which the State-Conven
tion is , asked and expected to adopt as
the permanett rules of , party govern
ment lie at the very foundation of Pop
ular Rule and Free Representation.
Their establishment secures delegates
directqrom the people the'masters of,
party action. The declarations prd
posed for the platform emphasize this
march cf progress, and carry us still
further toward a party redeetnEd, re
generated and disenthralled:
"The Conference wisely dealt with
principles and not with men. Its
chart for the course of the Republican
ship of state is safe. and satisfactory.
Everything now depends upon the
spirit and fidelity with which it is fol
lowed. if the.Harrisburg_ Convention
shall freely and unreservedly accept it;
if it shall make a ticket which will
signalizelhis, higher purpoi.e; if its can
didates shall satisfy the people -that
they . will be the' people's faithful rep
resentatives.; and if the spirit of this
agreement shall be carried out in pod
faith through all the party administra
tion, then the union will : -be sealed in
real harmony and triumph.' If not, the,
Independents of the State will still
hold their reserve power. _
The members of. the Conference
have acted with discretion and puttiot
isrr(and with fidelity to tha' interests
.confided to their hands.; Their agree
ment on the preliminaries of 'peace
-shows that the representatives of the
two"elements seek harmony upon hon
orable terms. It will be hailed by
patriotic Republicans'' of all shades
throughout he State, and only lament
oil by those!who seek to distract and
dikrupt the Republican party.

THE CHILI PE iNvEsnoAsiog.
The centre of interest during several days
of last week was :in - the investigation in
prOgress by the Committee on Foreign
Affairs of tore House, of the ro i latiimi of the
State Department under the illlaine diplo
matic administration as Secretary of State,
with a ff airs in Chili and Peru'. 'lt is iim
possible to give; in the limited space of a
short letter any, adequate statement of the
underlying ca+isthat led to this investi
gation. . •:.
, ' l , ,
The result, Will demonstrate that 1 there
was no cause fPt. the prolonged iinvestiga
tion of the Useless fabrications ol a set of
fraudulent speculators who clainfed to have
purchased; large interests 'in these' two
South AMericeri *publics, and known- as h
the Ceche* sad Liindrean claimi These
protenderii attempted to involve the State
Departinctit in:,an official recognition of
their clahns as Subjects of diplomatic, con
sideratiors„orithe part of our Government
through General Hurlburt, then:. Minister
at Peru., j Having been kicked out of the
State Department by • &ennui Blaine,
their repfeseutative or attorney, the, noto
rious Shiliherd,'put in circulation rumors
prejudicial to the Secretary of itate and
the then Minister at Peru. These lies were
seized upon by political enemies 'of ex-Sec
retary 14ineand so magnified as , to be
thought* proper subject of investigation.
Prelimin4ry to this, a resolution• passed by
the. House' called upon the State Depart
ment—Mr. Frelinghnysen Secretary of.
State, for copies of . all correspondence ,
between that Department and our . Minis-:
ters in Chili and Peru, relating to diplomatic
affairs between the 'United States' .and
these republics. The Secretary of 'State
forwarded the papers in response to the
resolution, but stated that certain letters
were missing from the tiles of the Department'
and could not be furnished. The subject
was then referred to - the Committee on
Foreign. Affairs for investigation. An 4 -
pression was sought to be made that pl
these papers could be, found they. would
support the allegations of the enemies Of
Blaine that he sought to involve this court. ;
ta'NjU PulvAsseVitzatil' - end tinat 'lie Ceuta'
share in the profits which, would eventuate
to these fraudulent claimants. As prelimi;
nary to this, it should be remembered, that
upon the advent of lir. FrelinghuYS'en to
the Secretaryship of State, there was a I
reversal by the administration of the:Blaine
diplomatic policy. It was supposed that
missing papers, in the nature of instruc
tion, to our Ministers in Chili ' anid , Peru,
would shed some light upon the causes that i
led to this reversal of policy. To this point
the scope of the investigation has been
directed. Afterthe testimony of the uoto- I
\ - •
rious fraud, Shipherd, was closed, in which
he convinced the committee that his stories
were sherelabrications entirely unsupport
ed by official data; Mr: Blaine by his own
request, was summoned before the ,Com
mittee last week to testify in relation to
the case. By his evidence, supported by
official papers, the whole theory of his ene
mies was"upset, and they were confounded
:by the uncovering of si most infamous
conspiracy to do injustice to, the ex-Secre
tary of the Garfield Administration. The
purport of the missing papers reached , the
donimittee through ministers Morton and
Hurlbut, and established the very contrary
'of what was sought by the instigators of
the calumny. Perry Belmont, a Democrat
ic member of the Ciiimmittee,, representing
the First Distriet_of Nek • York, exercised
his privilege as a member o e Committee 1 t
to interrogate. Mr. Blaine in t e most ,in
i, i4t
sulking and insolent manner. The theory
of his whole line of questions was directed'
to support the view of the case as paraded
in the Democratic press of ' the country,
false in fact, and malicious in conception
in the highest possible degree. • „
The indignation of Mr. Blaine at being'
thus insulted by an upstart • without intel
ligent knowledge of foreign affairs—a young'
Democratic lawyer, diminutive in size and
but about thirty years of age, whose 'only
recommendation to consideration; is the
wealth of his father, August Belmont,.
the American agent of the Rothchilds, may
well be imagined. He sat down upon the
pretentious upstart in such a manner that
the Democratic 'pigmy retired from , the
conflict with the intellectual giant with:the
condemnation of. his colleague of the com
mittee, branded by everybody as the cow ,
temptible, but weak instrument of . more
designing,political intriguers whose machin
ations he attempted to support. After the
disclosures before the committee, it is not
difficult to conjecture for What purpose the
missing Papers were absent firom the De
partment files. The evidence shows con
clusively, that the protectionnt the Garfield
Administration and of exrSeretary Blaine,
lay in the fair presentation of the whole
case as presented by the entire official pa
, pers, so it could not be that their absence
, "Was due to any wish oirhis part to prevent
public 'knowledge of any official transaction
of his. The reason why they did not tip;
pear, Will probably never be more satis
factorily answered. The report of the com
mittee, when made, cannot fall to . fully
and entirely exonerate ex-Secretary Blaine
from any and every charge sought to be
established by the instigators of the attack
made upon his administration of the State -
Department, and will go far to strengthen
his eminent reputation as a statesman. ''
The first of the numerous cases of con
tested elections pending in the House, Was

twelve counties, - and is strung out along
the Mississippi River for hundreds of miles,

to these, new tendencies, to affiliate itself

whether the Republi4an party is to take on

The following are the resolutions that
were appended to the above document :
Resolved, That we" recommend the adop
tion of the following principles and meth
ods by the Republican State Convention of
Bray 10:
1. That we unequivocally condemn the
use of patronage to promote personal politi
cal ends, and require that all offices be
stowed within the party shall be upon the
side basis of fitness.
2. That competent and faithful officers
should not ho removed except for cause,
3: That the 'non-elective minor offices
should be filed in accordance with trules
established by law.
4. That the ascertained popular will shall
be faithfully carried out in State and Nation
al Conventions and by those holding office
by the favor of the party.
5. That we condemn compulsory assess
ments for political purposes and proscrip
tion for failure to respond either to such
assessments or to requests for voluntary
contributions, and that any policy of po
litical proscription is unjust and calculated
to disturb party harmony.
6. That public office constitutes a high
trust to be, administered solely for the peo
ple, whose'ifiterest must be paramount to
those of pcirsons or parties, and that - it
should be invariably conducted with the
same efficiency-, .economy and integrity - , as
are expected m the execution of . private
trusts. . , •
. .
That the State ticket should be such
as by the impartiality of its co nstitution
and the high character and acknowledged
fitness of the nominees Will justly - commend
itself to the support of the united Republi

for the holding of State Conventions and
the conduct of the party:

shall be chosen in the manner in which
candidates for the General Assembly are
nominated, except in Senatorial districts
composed of more than one county, in
which conferees for tha selection of Sena
torial delegates shall be chosen in the man
ner aforesaid, and ,the representation of
each county shall be .based upon its Repub
lican vote, cast at the Pinsidential election
next preceCding the convention.
2. Hereafter the State Convention -of the
Republican party shall be held on the sec
and Wednesday of July, except in the peal
of the Presidential election, when it shall
be held not more thin thirt y days previous

:publican electorial ticket at the last Pntsi

Convention shall be permitted to partici
