the qnestion ia the wind of the

avowed policy of the Republican
majority, aa expressed by Speaker
Seed, to take no decisive action on
aay material isaae until after the
Presidential election, aad thereby
avoid any distressing complications
during the campaign. Thas the
present session has been one of in
activity and inertness for political
Teasons. lae present nam times,
depression in business, and scarcity
of money, have all been charged up
to the Democratic Administration,
and yet this party of such magnifi
cent pretensions, with a large ma
jority in both Hoases of the Legis
lative branch, have failed to even
introduce a single measure tending
to relieve the country from the dis
tress now resting upoa it. They
have not even attempted any tariff
legislation, notwithstanding they
claim the Wilson bill is carrying
the country to ruin every day. The
fact is, this party of false pretenses
is afraid of itself; it dares not put
itself on record on any important
Usae preceding a popalar election,
for fear of the judgment of aa in-
igaaat people. It has therefore
parsaed a do-nothing policy, and
will have thegall to go before the
country and ask a -vindication for
The only matters of note which
have emiaated from the present
Bepablican Congress, are excessive
appropriation bills, rapid war
speeches to be used for giving the
British lion's tail a twistj and doing
their level best to 'Issue more bonds
a time of peace." Thus far it has
been a CoBgress that has reduced
demagogy to a science by its su
piBeaess. The dominant party in
Congress has taken no decisive
stand on aay great question, except
a desire to hold the officesand draw
the salaries. It is neither .hot iwr
cold, and therefore shoald be spewed
oat of the mouth. Their record is
as transparent as the waieryaoup

said to be given out for effect. The
PttUhtrgh Leader, another cold
paper, concedes that the silver sen
timent k growiag most wonderfully
in the State, of Pennsylvania, par
ticularly among the working men.
The Republican politicians all over
the East and middle States, are
clamoring for sound money, and
will, without doubt, dictate the
platform at the St. Louis conven
tion. On the other hand, the feel
ing in the Democratic party is in
creasing in favor of the white
metal; and it now seems certain
that a free silver candidate will be
nominated on a free silver platform
at Chicago, thus presenting" a clean,
clear cut issue to the people at the

It has been said that, "the birds
of the air have nests, and the foxes
have holes" but the colored Re
publican delegates to the St. Louk
convention -have not where -to lay
their heads. It looks now like the
colored men who have been fight
ing for the g. o. p. for lo these
many years, and who will attend
the great Republican convention,
where the spirit of Lincoln u sup
posed to preside, will be compelled
to sleep in box .cars and board at a
cheap lunch counter, or else stay
away from St. Louk altogether
during the convention. St. Louk
is a Republican city, with a Repub
lican mayor; and the refusal of that,
city to provide decent accommoda
tions for the negro delegates who
wilf attend the convention, is only
another evidence of the great love
