ANOTHER LAW BOOK JOB.
The Supreme Court Report FraudAn Im
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 30, 1878.
Editor of the DAI LY GLOBE
At the last session of the Legislature, a
certain party in St. Paul lobbied a bill
through the Legislature for the publication
of eleven volumes of the Supreme Court Be
po^ts, to cost the State the sum of eleven
thousand dollars, without any benefit except
to a few lawyers and the parties interested in
the speculation. An appropriation of eleven
thousand dollars direct by the State would
not have received a dozen votes in the Legis
lature but to get the bill through, the par
ties in interest agreed if the purchase of 200
volumes of each of these reports was made
that no more than fifteen hundred dollars
should be appropriated in any one year for
Now, I see by the proceedings of the Leg
islature, that it is proposed to change
the law, so as to provide that the whole
amount of appropriation may be drawn out
of the treasury within two years. If it is
competent to make this hange in the inter
est of the party engaged in this speculation,
is it not competent for the Legislature to
change the law so as to relieve the State
from the obligation of paying twice the val
ue of the books? that is to say, one thousand
dollars for two hundred volumes will more
than pay the expense of printing one thou
sand volumes so that the State pays for
eight hundred volumes, which Mr. West ap
propriates to his own use. If the judiciary
committee last year had investigated this
matter, they would have had no difficulty in
making the purchase of the books for half
the money which the State is now obligated
to pay. I trust the Legislature
will refuse absolutely to consent to any
change in the terms of the law, unless a con
cession of at least two dollars a volume is
made in the price of these reports.
The law referred to is chapter 102 of the
General Laws of 1877, and should be read
carefully by every member of the Legisla
ture. The members of the judiciary com
mittee may be misled into recommending
the change to suit Mr. West but every fair
minded man will agree with me that the law
should stand as it now is or if this is not
satisfactory to the party for whose benefit it
was devised, then that it should be repealed,
and the lawyers allowed to make their own
arrangements about the reports if they want
them, or a concession be made, bringing the
price down to proper value. By calling pub
lic attention to this attempted modification
of the terms of a binding contract, you will
do the burdened tax payers a favor, and per
haps help in the future to guard the interests
of the State more carefully. Please read

Boutwell as tcLoMtyint.
[Washington Correspondence Cincinnati En
Ex-Secretary Boutwell turned up to-day in
the chamber as a lobbyist. Recently all the
bank-note printing was taken away from the
Bank Note Companies and the work hereto
fore done by them is executed in the Bureau
of engraving and printing of the Treasury
Department, at about half the cost. The
Bank Note Companies pooled in and organ
ized a lobby to induce Congress to again give
the note printing to them. Boutwell is en
gaged to head it, and to-day, with publishing
effrontery, he appeared before the banking
and currency committee and made a weak
argument for his corrupt clients. He has
been retained not so much for any legal
acumen which is carried in his number six
head, but because he has access to the floor
of the Senate^ and House, and knows the
members who can be prevailed upon.

No Doubt of Suicess.
[Pope County PressRep.]
We are in receipt of the first issue of the
DAILY GLOBE, the new Democratic daily
published in St. Paul by H. P. Hall, former
editor of the Dispatch. Mr. Hall is a vet
eran publisher of well-known ability and
will no doubt make THE GLOBE a success.
David Blakelg Disappointed.
The St. Paul GLOBE is disappointing the
expectations of a goodly number of its ene
mies, and of the enemies of progressive
journalism generally, by turning out to be a
cleanly, dignified, and in all respects a cred
itable daily journal. As such, it is deserving
of success, and we trust will achieve it.
Like to See Him Succeed.
Everybody has a weakness, and our friend
Harlan P. Hall is not an exception to the
rest of mankind. He has alway had a weak
ness for a morning daily, and last week it
broke out "all over" in the DAILY GLOBE, an
enterprise in which Harlan will succeed. We
don't think much of his politics, but he is
so energetic and full of business that we like
to see him succeed.
A Cordial Support.
The DAILY GLOBE is the title of a braud
new Democratic sheet just conjured into life
at St. Paul by the redoubtable Harlan P.
Hall. It will certainly meet with a cordial
support, if there is any partisan spirit left
with the Democracy. It is able, newsy, and
attractive. Hall, as a man, is well liked by
the Minnesota publishers, and will receive
their hearty encouragement.
A "Live Journal.
H. P. Hall, formerly publisher of the St.
Paul Dispatch, has made arrangements to
commence the publication of a Democratic
daily in said city, to be called the DAILY
GLOBE. Mr. Hall's well known abilities,
push and enterprise, render it safe to predict
that the GLOBE will be no two-cent affair
but, on the contrary, a live journal, full of
aid, comfort and encouragement for the
Democratic "Prodigal"' in this State.
Straight from the Shoulder.
We have received the first number of the
St. Paul GLOBE, "by H.P.Hall." It is a

THE TiSA'T BOOK JOB.
A tittle Daylight Being Let Into It.
THE LAST SCHOOL-BOOK SCHEME.
The State text-book contractor has had a
bill introduced into the Senate to perfect his
job, and make it snug and tight for a decade
and a half of years. The bill admits him
unrestrictedly to the State Treasury, and to
the entire funds, if necessary, realized from
the State taxes for the benefit of the schools,
and compels all the officers connected with
the school system that he has any use for to
act as book orderers, agents, store-keepers,
and purveyors. Under the new scheme the
district clerks must make estimates for the
books required, the county superintendents
must make requisitions for them upon the
State superintendent, the State superinten
dent must make requisitions upon the .con
tractor for them and transmit them
to the county auditors: and the
State treasurer must hand over the
money out of the school fund to
pay them.for them as soon as they are deliv
ered, and trust to fortune and the good faith
and ability of the counties and school dis
tricts to get the money back and then the
district clerks must receive the books from
the auditors and sell them, and turn the mon
ey over to the county auditor under penalty
of fine and imprisonment. To cap the cli
max, the people must buy and use just such
books as this law imposes, whether they like
it or not. Altogether it is a piecious scheme
is it not?

their text book market. In counties where
anything at all has been done in the matter,
troubles and disappointments have been the
only results. The sooner that miserable and"
improper law is repealed, the better for eveiy

I Matthews as Hayes' Nejct Friend.
There is a good reason to believe that the
President will not veto the silver bill. Sen
ator Matthews rendered him a great service
in offering his silver resolutions and pressing
them to a vote in the shape of concurrent
resolutionsnot joint. The President,
without incurring any responsibility, is ad
vised of the temper of the Senate. Notice is
filed on him, before he needs to take action,
that two-thirds of the Senate, to which body
alone he could hope for support against the
silver bill, are in favor of that bill. The
skillful course of Senator Matthews was the
adroit management of a friend of the Presi
dent as well as of a friend of the silver bill.
A lively squabble is going on in Lyon
county over county treasury matters. The
treasurer having been elected a member of
the legislature this fall, the county board
acting on the advice of the Attorney General
proceeded to appoint a treasurer. Before
leaving for St. Paul the treasurer appointed
a deputy and left him in charge of the books
and papers of the office, and refuses to rec
ognize the appointee of the board. The re
sult will probably be alaw suit that will be
decided a year or two after the expiration of
the"present treasurer's term of office, which
ke Neic Bill Prepared by flie House Com-
T'.e sub-committee of the 'House commit
tee on ways and means, of which Mr. Wood
of New York, is chairman, has completed
the tariff bill which it has had under consid
eration for two months, and the full com-
mittee has entered upon its discussion. The
bill proposes a general reduction of tariff
rates, arranging about twenty per cent., but
with no change in the rates of manufactured
articles of luxury. Compound duties are en
tirely dispensed with, the duties being
either all specific or all ad
valorem and specific .when ever
practicable. The number of articles
upon which duties are to be imposed is re
reduced from about 1,600 to about 500. The
free list is not given in the bill but it is pro
vided that no duties shall be levied upon ar
ticles not enumerated as dutiable. To this
rule there are some exceptions, one being a
clause especially exempting steam plows and
other steam machinery for farming from
any duty. The schedules and classifications
of the present tariff are followed
but are abbreviated and simplified. The
intention in framing th9 bill, according to
its authors, has been to increase the revenue
while lessening the cost of collection to en
courage foreign trade without detriment to
the productive interests of the country: and
to dispense with duties which neither direct
ly nor indirectly add to the income of the
The' plan followed appears to have been to
endeavor to compensate the hitherto pro
tected industries of the country for the re
duction of rates affecting them by reduc
tions and exemptions upon imports useful
or necessary to those industries. Another
compensating feature of the bill is in a sec
tion giving to manufacturers the privilege of
obtaining raw materials, otherwise dutiable,
free of duty on condition of exporting the
manufactures. This provision in the present
tariff has been of especial importance to
sugai refiners and, in connection
with the discrimmating duties upon sugars
of different qualities has operated to put
nearly all the sugar importation of the coun
try into the hands of the refiners, while de
priving our markets of the best grades of
common and unrefined sugar which used to
be largely consumed in preference to the
highly refined grades. To the encourage
ment which our ship building interests are
supposed to derive from the prohibition of
foieign built vessels in our naviga
tion laws, this bill proposes to add
the privilege of importing ship building ma
terials of all kinds free of duty. The duty
on iron is materially reduced. The du
ty on wheat is 1 educed to fifteen cents. The
changes of duty on wools as on most arti
cles which are raw material of manufactur
ers, are in favor of the manufacturers, but
the reduction on manufactured goods are
not such as will much benefit the consuming
classes in the direct way of lowering prices
All all, the bill is not one that will be
satisfactory to either free traders or protec
tionists. But it is promised" by Mr. Wood,
on the authority of estimates furnished by
treasury experts, that it will give an increase
of $17,000,000 in the revenue, while re
ducing the cost of collection by more than
$4,000,000an aggregate gam of $21,000,-
000 as compared with last year. The bill
will be under discussion by the committee
for two weeks or more, before being reported
to the House, and that tune it will doubt
less be closely analyzed and sharply criticized.

ing: "The Leavenworth, Pawnee and Wes
tern railway stock contract, made for the
company by J. C. Stone and Thomas Ewing,
Jr., agents of the company, to secure the
ratification of the Delaware and Poltawata
mie treaties and the passage of the Kansas
Pacific bill." This was published in New
York two or three years ago, and as published
now, contains no new names except the fol
lowing newspaper people to whom stock was
given: Mrs. Wallis, wife of Dr. Walhs, of
The New Yoik Herald, four hundred shares,
$20,000: Wilson, New York Times, two
hundred shaies, $10,000 Whitely, New
York Herald, one hundred shares, $5,000.
The Ewing mentioned in the bill is Gen.
Ewing, of the present Congress. In an in
terview he said that he had never prepared
any list, and upon the general subject made
the following statement: "I know nothing
whatever about the memorandum alleged to
have been given by Gen. J. C. Stone and
Gen. Fremont in 18G2, giving the names of
men who had claims on the Kansas railroad
company for bonds and railway stock. I
was a member of the directory of that com
pany when the Pacific railroad bill passed. I
signed seveial agreements with various per
sons for bonds and stocks as compensation
for services rendered or to be rendered to
the company in getting the bill passed. The
had only an uncertain prospective value.*'
"What was the nature of these services?"
"Ordinary services of attorneys and
agents." Gen. Ewing continued. "These
agreements are referred to in the list pub
lished, and include perhaps one-fourth of
that list. As to the other alleged agreements
in that list I know nothing. Some of those
agreements which I signed, or had knowl
edge of. were not made with or for the bene
fit of any public officer. Lathrop, who is
mentioned, in the lists as being entitled to
500 acres of land according to a memoran
dum, was an agent and attorney of the com
pany As to an alleged agreement with W.
P. Dole. Commissioner of Indian Affairs, I
have only to say that I* know nothing what
ever of any arrangement or agreement by
which Mr. Dole was to have any land from
the company. I was director of the com
pany for a year only, resigning my position
on entering the army in 18G2. A part of
the transactions mentioned in the lists may
have antedated, and a part may have fol
lowed my relation with the company."
Guns should always be carried at the half
cock, as then neither a blow on the striker
nor a pull at the trigger will bring the former
into action. There is no necessity whatever
for a gun to be otherwise than at the half
cock, unless game is immediately in front
and, further, it may not be out of place to
add, that it is dangerous when shooting in
company for the gun to be swung round in
taking aim with the finger on the trigger.
The eye should follow the line of flight, and
the gun be raised at the proper moment.
Accidents from guns bursting are rare, but
caution is very necessary in getting over
fences to see that no earth gets lodged in the
muzzle, or in winter time that the latter does
not get blocked up by snow dropping from
bushes or otherwise. These obstacles, al
though they may be easily removed, are
quite sufficient, if they Remain, to burst the
strongest barrel when the piece is fired.
This is caused by the wonderful velocity of
the expanding gases. This expansion, which
is said to be at about the rate of 7,000 feet
per second, is the same in all directions, and
the least check at the muzzle of the gun
causes such a sudden increased pressure on
its sides that the latter are unable to resist
its effects, and are burst open. No one is
more cautious or scrupulously careful in the
use of his gun than an old sportsman, and
no one more readily than he detects and
will be January 1st next.New Ulm condemns carelessness in the manipulation of 12^^^?S

NEW YOBK, Jan. 31.Gold was weak to-day and
declined from 102& to 101 with dosing sales at the
Carrying rates 6 to 2 per cent. The decline in gold
was due to the reduction of the Bank of England
rate to 2 per cent., and advices from Washington
that there was a alight defection in the sflver ranks
which might prevent the Bland bul from getting a
two-thirds vote in the Senate. The announcement
that the bul had been postponed until Monday next
also had some effect.
