Last night, I swnt, you a itbrief sp'nlal tout
lining the contentsl of
THE REI'tpII'P OF INTERiNA., REVENI'E tPOMMtI
which was desneriblti as a pit'c de ri st'..nlrrLC'
of the new Bhiltly Shirt tragedy, which the
Radicals propose to put on the loards of fIhe
(Congresslonal theatre this winter. N.lite
writing that telegram I have ascertaitledl
quite a volume of additional Information ilafon
the subject, which, being too bulky for the
limits of a special telegram, must tunderllgo
the slower process of Mr. Key's fast In'all
It appears that Mr. Ra. A bee in
gaged for some time incubatl fine fatge
brood of i.es which form of his sre
port; that he has been aselated n this d'l~,-t
able task, both in suggestion and in fast, by
all or nearly all of the fugitive Radical foelns
now here from Houth Carolina, Alabama and
Georgia, which three States prlncipally'foi-m
the scene of the sanguinary drama he has
evolved. In short, the report Is a camrnalgn
document, drawn up in the guise of an o111
cal report by a Iureau of the government,
and for utter malignity of libel has rarely
been exceeded even by the stump speech.b of
Blaine, Ioutwell, Conkling or Bill Chandler.
The object is two-fold. First, to lay a !baise
upon which a bill may. be framed, providing
for the direct ei4ployment of the rmilitairy
forces of the United Htates to aid in
THE (e)'OlETION OF THE REVENI'E,
and, second, to send forth to the counltry, or
rather to the North, in the sedluctive guise of
an ofmcflal doculnent, a mass of stale vitupt'r
ation already worn thin and thrneadbaie;, hy
all the Radical orators that have h;twied
upon all the Radlial hustings of the countlry
for the last seven or eight years. Tihe Iati ie
half of this duplex t,(,8,t may be passed over
without cnmment., as iling only a nntltural
residuum of the Iradlll ionary camp'ngn p.olly
of the Radical machine. But the it ret half is
of vital Importance.
I presume there will Ibe no ctntrao,-cesy
J-pon the proposition that any attempt, und|er
any pretext or for any allegedl purpos',; to
reintroduce the eloment of Federal solidl;,ry
Into the politllis of the outh,. would fortm the
longest anti gravest step towarBi unndlligall
the slow and painful work ,of the past ten )toPrs,
that could be devisell.Thn average cth tlr
ter of the men employed under this atdln.oi
tration--or that would be likely to b. ntm
ployed under any Republican regimen-- II tol-i
Jecting the revenues in the tout horn ita'tes
renders any proposal to confer upon thi.m
plenary or even conditional power to call In
and direct the operations of Federal sol tlbry
in any Bouthern community, at any tlmnt or
for any ostensible purpose, simply a propo

I have to-day received authentic infrina
t.on as to the substance of a bill already I;rer
pared and ready for introduction by a rImn
her of the Finance Committee of the Stndtte
desir.ned to effect thepurposeabove sketicited.
It is a simple meaoture, and, on its face, a'plpar
ently Inoffenslve. It provides that any niyo
lence offered, or allegred to have been offered,
to any omffier of the United States wr any alit
calculatedd to deter him from the dlisharge: of
his dutiotl as such oflh'e'r, shall be a irlInon
against the I'nited St ates. originally ct.grllz
able by the Federal co')urt in tile manner aind
under the forms prese'rlithe for the dietection
and punishment of frauds upon the reveriue,
VIOLATION OF TIH1E R:vFENP1, LAWS
by officlals themselves. This provislon` of
course in effect vests tihe United Htates courts
with jurisdiction over any and all cases which
may be raised by complaints of Federal oil
oersor of citizens on their behalf. For exam
ple, if the bill becomes a law. any citizen of
New Orleans may be hauled before the United
States District (ourt, indicted and put upon
his trial for any offence, real or alleged; pro
vided any Federal revenue offtical or any
other citizen, on behalf of such oflicial,'sliall
testify that the offense was committedl "with
a view to deter him from the discharge of his
duties." John Smith may commit an aR'sa'ult
upon James Jones, and, if William Hlrown,
who is a Federal oHicer, will swear that the
object of Smith's assault upon .mtnes was to
"deter him. Brown, from the discharge of his
official duties," Sm ith will he loomed to, hive
committed~ an offlnse against the laws of the
United States,and to be triabll, anid punllishnbl
in a Federal court for obstructing the collect Ion
of the revenuel.
To guarantitee ilh enforcement of thls i omil
tiful Russlan law, the hill t)provile' tihat in
any case of r.esistlance 1to its exe'tion ll tthe
United Stabts marshal for the district mrty,
upon an order froml1 the court, sumllllol~1 the
nearest military or naval force of thel I ilted
states, or in the absence of any such fi.oce,
may specially appo int and arm deputy nrar
shals to enforce the law and crush said resist
ance. I •
All this to be entitled "An act to providl'
for the more efficient collectlion of the intfr
nal revenues of tlle IUnited Stat's."
A day or two ago the author of this measuire
called poin a plromltinnt J)emnocratic mnlembuer
of the lHoulse and, after a desultory discussion
of the recent troubles in South Carolina,' gon
erally known as
said, "I suppose your party in the house will
not make any factious opposition to a hill de
slgned to facilitatl t he extermination of gaugs
of outlaws, organized to prevent the collect ion
of the revenue ?"
The Democrat replied: "C'ertainly' not,
provided it comes within the limits of the
" Well," retorted the Radical Senator, " you
will admit that the law creating the internal
revenute and emnpowering theii Federal govern
ment to collect it is constitutional, will you
"That," said the P.mocrat member of the;
House, "is a pre'tt.()lroad question. I haIve
always held that the right of the Ftedlral'
government under the constitution to levy:
and collect what Is known as the Intr'nal
revenue through it Swn agents and over the
heads of the local or State governments. ex:
isted only by sufferance of the States.. It
certainly does not appear to be spee 'ibId ilt
any way, either directly or by implication, as
one of the powers delegated to the gen.riil
government by the States, under the griginial
compact on which the constitution is baised
and out of which the Union grew."
"Now," said the Senator, drawing froin li.
pocket the text of the bill I have des crililn.
general terms, "here is a measure w$j have
drawn up to meet difficulties which will.be
set forth in the report of the Internal R.v~eiue
Bureau; read it carefully and tell ine low It
The member read the bill. When ie Irad
finished the Senator asked him if he thougiht
the Democratic majority in the House' wouhld
unitely oppose it.
"I can t speak for any member but nivsli.f,"
was the reply; "but you may begin a list of
the opponents of this bill with m naroe. '
"But if the general government has the
right to impose a tax and collect it, hls it-. not
also the right to provide means of of rrom
ing any resistan 'e that may be offerd to its
agents in their efforts to collect the taxs'";
"As I said before," replied the member,
"this whole subject is one of constitutional in
terpretation and application. If thi~s bill is
introduced and pressed it will, in niy judg
ment, bring up the whole* theme of the con
stitutionality of the Internal revenue laws th
fore the dlscusslma of it ends. You had better
leave the whole bullsiness alone. There is r.
growing drlispIlltion in the country to inlqulire
by what authot ity the Federal governlment
asumIIII a great many powers, and this a s
sumption of power to levy and collect a tax
sp1u n alll from the citizens of States Is one of
them. Inslteadl of prlovildinlg the means you
nwl your iprty sReek for the better enlforice
menIt of the intelrnl revenueM laws, tihe intro
dill ion of this bill may provoke a discussion
that will lead hto
'THE I)FRTII'('TI N OF THAT WHOl,E SYSTEM
oF IM'OSTr OIt REX('1.I."
"I eptrlIelod that the right of tile general

"Not at all," replied! the member, "tihe re

levy and co(llect taxes, or to apply force In
any manner not spellPied in the constitutlon
for any purpose whatsoever, was not in issue
in the war, and, hence, cannot Ie one of the
results of it In any sense of the terms."
More conversation to the same purport fol
lowed, the upshot of which was that the
Senator pocketed his bill and took his leave,
with his opinion of the vigilance and nerve of
Democratic statesmen cIonslderahly exaltedl.
It would le foolish, however, to deny that
there is considerable apprehension on the
part of many of ihoe Southern and Western
litmocrats now here, lest, through the
apathy, Indecision, or worse, of some of our
Northeastern brethren In the Ilouse. this bill

"As a lawyer and a jurist what do you say

Lamar has greater contldene, in the potency
of the conservative influences exerted by
chlurz and Evarts upon the mind and actions
of Hayes than we have. le agreelI with me,
however, that such a ISpower as this bill con

"Cionkling might more truthfully have
'alled hinm the Prophet of the Senate than its
Jsuit in that celebrated Mines interview, you
think ?" said 1I, interr'ogatively.
"Yes, and if ('onkling had added that he
himnself was the MacIhiavel of that ibodly, the
record would have t~'en completeA. ulit such
an aimount of truth telling all at once woiuldl
have been too much for Conkllng."
To change the subiject or rather the direc
tion of it-let me add that I had a long con
versation with Senator Lamar to-day in the
course of which he expressed himself asen
tirely in line with the attitude assumed by
the I)EMOCRAT on the subject of the organI
zatlon of the next Congress. And in this con
nec'tlon he said a striking thing in his pecu
liar Mirabtau-like way.
1 had remarked that I thought the
TRUE POLICY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY
should be to dlscountenance all or any refer
ence to sectionalism in its organization of the
house as well as in Its legislation.
"That." said he, "is an abstract truth, but a
geographical and ethnical impossibility
or fallacy. God, who makes soils and cli
mates, has ordained sections. They cannot
be ignored any more than can differences of
race or diversities in types of civilization.
This country, stretching through twe' y de
grees of latitude and joining the temperate
zone to the semi-tropics, can never forget its
sections or evade the influence of their exist
cnc.. upon its polity as a whole. But while
they cannot be obliterated as political facts,
the sections of our country may he co-ordi
nated in political power. Mill, in his treatise
on the British government, utters as immor
tal a truth as ever fell from an uninspired pon
when he says, sloaking of British rule in In
dia, that it is based upon a fault, and that
the fault lies in the fact that the laws
for India are made in London; that legisla
tion by the representatives of one race and
community for the unrepresented body of
another and remote race and community, is
contrary to thel spirit and principles of lib
erty, equity and justice; that no Legisla
ture can in right and propriety be the author
of law. from the operation of which its own
members, as citizens, are to be exempt-or
