KANSAS REPUBLICANS SUSTAINED.
The Supreme Court of Kansas has derided
in favor of the Republicans a case involving
the organisati ? of tho House of Represent
anies, two Justices agreeiBg and one, a Pop?
ulist, di-sentin*;:. Tin* issue mis made in this
nay : A niau named Gunn uas summoned a*
a witness before the Elections Committee of
?.ho Republicaa House. On his failure to ap?
pear ho was arrested for contempt ob a war?
rani signed by Speaker Douglass and held in
nominal contir. in nt in Topeka. An applica?
tion for a mil of habeas corpus was made to
the Supreme Court in his behalf, and argu?
ments wire heard last neck. By deny?
ing tho writ, tho Supreme Court has 11 nv ad?
judged the Republican Hons*" tho hm lui loner
branch of ihe Legislature, There has never
been any leal doubt ;is t.< the decision which
the cunt wonld render, provided it hard tho
case at all, though there was some pretence
that it lacked jurisdiction; but it had ben
hoped thal the Populist member of the rotirl
would coincide with his colleagues and make
the decision unanimous. The effect of his dis?
sent arnon the party I ? which h<* belongs may
ho unfortunate, but ii n iwise impairs the valid?
ity and aiithoiify of thc Judgment. Tho high
<-?; tr''imal of the State, after careful delib 'ra?
tion, sustains the Republican position. Thu is
enough in law, and it ought t<> be enough in
Bul thc Populists, when they surrendered I 1

not suiTcnder gracefully or completely. Thc}
have occupied tho intervening timo with
treasonable declarations, and. 1: is said, with
preparations to make BB armed ii'si-taii'.' to
authority, if the Judicial decision should be ad?
verse to their pretensions. They hare ( rmal
ly ann traced through the Governor an I other
leodeistfaat they would Bcd obey the court, and
they ar* rt port d t > bc organizing a I irgo mil

ly be discounted t > some extent, esp c all.! bow
that the leading Populists hare doctor d their
intention <>f l>"uiii.'-' 1 1 tho deciskm of thc
conn. But there is no doubt thal many
of the men who have len directing tins
revolutionary morcmenl are soltiah, rcckl"***
and turbulent, and that so I iii.* a* they retain
authority orcr their folio-era the*, arc likely
to had them inti ipiscbioroug and dangerous
folly. Al Ihfl same time public sentiment in
Kansas and throughout thc country had air cadi
declared iisolf positively against them, and ii
trill be doubly bard t 1 maintain a bold front
now that the Supremo Court h;** denied their
claim. Bluster they undoubtedly uill: birt it

The plan for demolishing tho City Hall in
order to erect upon and around ile* site of ii
a nen- municipal building is one with which
TlIR Tl li;* SE, as i's i'-ad' r* kn nv. has ii"
had a particle >f syaipathy. We han re?
garded this scheme as thoroughly tainted bj
Tammany politics, as unnecessary and ruth?
less: and our opinion ha- n ,: chang d. We
should rejoice t' so some taxpayer bunging
ihe mattel into ?? int, and we >iill bon, thai
such an interference with the Tamman* pm
gramme may come about. Bul there is hui ?
adraatage iji refusing i<> admit thar th" City
Hali Mill probably bc sacriticed t'> grut if.1 the
ambition of Mayor Gilroy and his adviser.**.
If ihat is I,, be the result 1 1 a long ronte.it
between public opinion and thc rulers of thc
city, shall rho materials which compote the
structure be sold i.. the higbeat bidder 1 or
junk. 01 shall they be reunited aa nearly as
may bo in theil in's, nt relations 011 - me other
site? Thai is a question which h::* aroiwed
considerable public interegl and attract "d th"
attention of the Lfgislaturc. Mr. John Uig-*?l iv
has taken it up in a letter to Assemblyman
Farquhar, which ive print thi. morning. Mr.
Bigelow speaks 1 r thc Tilden Trustees, who
nant to hare tbe City Hall rouoratruoted on
tbe sue of ih" reservoir, reith its front to
Fifth-are. and its back t" Bryant I'ark, .ind
t'i ort-ibii-h in ii there th<- Tilden Librar;.
Thi* interesting contribution fi tbe debate
contains no argument for nr against thc laking
donn of the City Ball, and ao direct appeal
for ita restoration iu another place. But if it
is to be illumed and get up elsewhere ih"
Trustees of the Tilden Trina] would be glad (-"
utilize it m the manner described, Wo have
never ad rora ted the preservation of thi. in*
ter sting building as a souvenir, amid unnatu?
ral surroundings, lt belongs whete it is and
ought t-i be left there. Remored to some other
-p..! it would la.k a great part of al! thal bow
makes it valuable. Tho proposiil rn has al wai 1
seemed lo us miler faataatic. Bul if it is nol
only to make May for a sneressor, bul also lu
protract a more or I *s maimed existence on
another sit", then it i, worth while t , find thc
bes! possible place and usc for it. And n my
frankly that the Tilden Trust es hare mad ? thc
most sensible propone! which has ben heard
ihus far. The fact is especially north con
Mil'ung that und nt their charge tie* building
iv mid nol l.e a mere idle, displaced monument
of dd days and mi dem folly, lt would Serve
an extremely imporfinl purpose. t> which, as
we infer from Mr. Bigelow's letter, he and bis
coTe-gues deem it well adapted. Hs aspect
would certainly be appropriate, mora so than
an entirely now design might jin.ye t, be; and
if r.c instruct *d in accordance with Mi. Bige?
low's suggestions it wonld gi eat ly ornament a
locality which is now disfigttied In thc useless
lt should be borne in mind, moreover, that
if this scheme is not cari i'd out flu- Tilden
Library nlll probably ROI onie into oxisteRCQ
for a good many years. The expense of re
moral and rcatoiati n would be bttge without
.1 doubt; but presumably it would be I"*, than
tho cost of a new building equally comm li
ons. Infos Rmi ion OR this pain! is maure, and
liof.ro any decision is reached a careful <t*ti
niato ought ti bfl made. This city i* jn urgi nt
need of a greal free public libihry, and under
tito circumstances this plan f .1 hastening the
partial realintfoa of Mr. Tilden'g expectations
is oiiiitloU to careful consideration. We -,ai
BUBB more thal iv aic totally opposed to thc
demolition of the City Hall, and there is grave
doubt, of th" adrantage of rebuilding it else
whete on any terms. Hut ,f its deStrtUtiOR
and recoostruetioo af both foreordained, then
