On the second page our readers will
Hiul an interesting synojis of Senator
IIowoll E. Jackson's report as a mem
ber of thoSenate Judiciary Committee
on the question of Dustin's removal
It is ably conclusive as to the I'resi
dent's position, and leaves nothing to
be desired by the friends of the admin
istration. The report denies the Sen
ate's power to question the President
as to the matter, and staffs -that he
ill not submit to the degrading pro
cess oT catechising 1 which the Repub
lican SenaUrs thus insist upon. It
might, had not the dignity of the Sen
ate itself been involved, have
gone . further and declared the
truth, that the bubbub about
Dustin's removal is due to the covert
opposition of some of the Republican
Senators to civil service reform and
their determination sneakingly to avail
themselves of tho civil service law to
retain their partisans in place, whether
ht or not, in order to thwart the Dem
ocratic administration. It is mean and
petty business, comtcmptible and be
littling, and disgraceful to the country.
Tub issue is made up between the
Senate and the President. The Senate,
by its Republican majority, declared
last neck that no confirmation will bo
made until the demand of that body
for all the information in the hands of
the President as to certain officers
removed is laid before it. Mr. Cleve
land, in answer to this challenge, yes
terday sent a message to the Senate,
which we publish on the fourth page,
in which he declines to yield and says
that "neither the discontent of party
friends, the allurements of certain ap
pointees, nor the threat of the Senate,
resolutions are sufficient to discourage
or deter me from following in the way
which I am convinced leads to better
government for tho people." The
President in this message makes
plain the purely political purpose of
the Republican majority and fairly
and with cutting irony shows them
that since Andrew Johnson went out
of office no such attempt has been
made to embarrass the Executive, and
he says almost in words that this at
tempt is due to the fact that he was
elected by a party in opposition to the
Republican Senators because he is a
Deni oerat .
The Queen of England has had a
nudge from her liege subjects that her
son, the Prince of Wales ami her
friend the Marquis of Salisbury, have
advised her to pay particular attention
to. A toast in her honor at a banquet
last Wednesday, was hissed, and al
though the Attorney-General, who
was present, denied in Parliament
that this was true, it is nevertheless
a fact. It is vouched for as such by .
the 1ondon correspondent of the New
York Evening Port, who telegraphed
that paper that it was the most con
spicuous incident of the evening. Hut
worse than that is the follow
ing, from the Stamluni, the
net organ of the aristocrat'
i It says: "Tt m time to say ptlbl.cJy
what everybody has been saving pri
vately for many years, that the Queen
and the country over which she rules
have been too Jong separated ; that
the separation cannot lie continued
much longer without serious and
lasting injury both to the throne and
the community. There is no mom in
the Knglish constitution for a sovereign
who lives in almost complete seclu
sion. "Time was.in the memory of living
men, when an editor would have had
to pay dearly for such language, and
an Attorney-General would have been
driven into retirement for giving even
silent consent to so gross an indignity
to his sovereign. 15ut events are hur
rying forward very rapidly in England
and Ireland lust now.

The Hawaiian Sugar Trade.
Washington, March 1. Gov. Bout
well, counsel for the Hawaiian Minis
ter, explained to Mr. Mills's subcom
mittee of the Ways and Means Com
mittee, to-day, the reasons why, in the
judgment of the Minister, the recip
rocity treaty should be continued, lie
said that thellawaiian sugar had been
a benefit to the treaty, and that the
price of sugar had been reduced on
the Pacific coast, although only to a
slight extent. Tho refiners on that
coast were now in operation, and
would hereafter make enonch suiriir to
supply that section. Minister Carter
presented a number of tables of im
ports and exports intended to show
the advantages accruing from
the treaty. Mr. Searle had said
that the sugar refiners were
not the movers in this case, but
last year tho San Francisco refiners
sent East L'il.OOO tons of Sandwich
Island sugar, and with this vear'scron
would send 50,000 tons. "Sandwich
Island sugar is offered in the market
at New Orleans in competition with
Louisiana sugar. Representative Kim?
of Louisiana denied that the Louisian
ans were contented with the treaty.
and said petitions requesting its abro
gation had been extensively signed in

these suits present eubtUcttally the

brought by an express company
sgalnst the railway company ts re
Bttain the railway company from in
terfering with or disturbing in any
manner the facilities theretofore af
forded the express company fordoing
its business on the ni'lway of the rail
way company. The question pre
settsd was the right of railroad com
panies to refuse to carry express mat
ter and the agenta and messengers of
the express companies over their
lines, The railroad companies
claimed the right to trans
port express matter over their
tinea in cars selected by themselves
and nnder the control of their own
employes. The lower court decided
in favor of the express company. The
Chief Justice delivered the opinion of
tbe court He held that it was not
shown in the tettimony that any rail
road company has ever held itself out
as a common carrier of common car
riers. The questloo, he said, was
whether these express companies can
t ow demand a? a right what they have
heretofore had only as a favor.
That depends oa whether tbe
railroad companies are by law
charged with the duty of carrying
all express companies in the way that
express carriers are usually carried
just as they are with the duty of car
rying all passengers and freight', when
offered in the way that they are car
ried, The court holds that they are
net. Tbe decree Is reversed and the
suit is remanded, with directions lo dis
solve the injunction, and alter adjust
ing the quebtion between tne parties
for buiineas done while the injunction
was in force, and Decreeing tbe ray
ment of any amount! that may be

ler and Field dissented from the
No. 120. The Pbreaix Insurance
Company of Brooklyn, appellant, vs.
the Erie and Western Tiansportation
Company. Appeal from the Circuit
Court of the United States for the
Eastern District of Wisconsin. This
was a libel in admiralty. Tbe cargo
of corn win shipped from Chi
cago to BuflYo on a propeller
belonging to tne Transportation Com
pany and was lost in transit. It was
insured in the Ptieaix Company, who
paid the owners $8000, the amount of
the policy, and then eurd the Trans
port ution Company lor damages. Ihe
defense claimed that by a provision of
the contract for carnage the carrier was
to have tho benefit of any insur
ance effected by the owners upon the
goods. The Disiriut Court held that
this provision was valid, and therefore
no right oi superogauon accrued to
the libellant, and entered a decree ac
cordingly. The libellant appealed to
the Circuit Court, and that court
awarded the libellant the sum of
$2400 12. The decree of the Circuit
Court is affirmed.
No. 936. The State of Tennessee,
plaintiff in error, vs. George K. Whit

of tbe United States for the Middle
District of Tennessee. This suit was
brousht bv the State of Tennessee

of the company, its capital stock waa
