Tbe speech of Senator Edmunds de
livered yesterday, and which we pub
lish on the third paj?e, is vary bald
penmen of rptcial pleading, calcu
lated to deceive the very elect. The
quotation of Senator Thurmau's letter
to At'orney-General Brewster of Ar
thur's Cabinet gives to his argument
color that it does not possess. Put
ins nutshell, the question at issue
between the President and tbe Re
publicans of the Senate is one of
pewonal prerogative. Mr. Chvelaod
admits that the Senate fcuj tbe right
to alt papers or information lodged
with him in regard to treaties or ap
pointment to office, or anything else
in which that body bai joint powers
with him, but it is not entitled to the
information on which he based the
moval of Dustln, Diatrict Attor
ney of Alatama. Tbe fact
that President Arthur Rave informa
tion in similar cane on tbe demand
of tbe Senate Judiciary Committee at
time when Senator Thurman was
chairman of it, does not justify the at
titude of the Republican Senators
toward Mr. Cleveland. If Arthur
had refused there was no pow
er to compel him. And so
withMr.Chveland. As President be
has tbe power of removal, and under
the constitution is alone responsible
for removals, and if the rea:ons for re
moving Dastln are good and sufficient
to him that 1h enough it is tbe end of
the matter. The Senate is entitled to
papers and information affecting ap
pointmenta to cilice, but aa to re
movals it is not. The President is
right. He Lin the -law and the bulk
of the precedents ou bis side.
"TOl'K PAPERS t"
The United States Senate appears to
be wanting iu self esteem. Its mem
bers set at if they felt insignificant.
' They pant for greater bight and more
commanding presence. Not relying
upon personal character, they seek an
adventitious exaltation. Modeet as
to their Individual merits, they strive
to soar by increasing the sphere of
their authority. They act upon the
maxim tbat it is not what men are bat
what tbey Aai that entitles them to
respect. Despairing of elsvat'ng them
selves, and failing some time ago
to filch pinions from tbe "Lower
House" for a lofty flight, they are now
seeking to raise themselves above
floor-level by bullying tbe President
out of as many sheets of paper as,
when put under their feet, shall In
crease their s'aturp. It Is a noble am
bition and shows n subtile conception
of the paper in stock in the President's
apartments as a means of raising them
Holves above their present base. They
must fee) us the grubdid, which isde
tcribed a asreuding to the very sum
mit of a blade of grass, from which
diiuty higbt "to spit out storn agdmt
the tusker of the universo." The Sen.
ate's demand upon tbe Preeideut for
papers connected with dismissal from
office it no', for the sake of subserving
the public's iLtsrestB, or of Improving
gvernmental proceedings; it is a mere
tempest In a teapot which the Senate
hat got up t j wreck the President un
less be will sail on wind of their blow
ing, la vain have they laid in a stock
I tbat ship-impelling commodity, in
cluding the heavy d-uft made upon
the memory of thai encroaching King
Charles I, the good ship President will
neither put down helm nor trim sails
under their pilotage. See how that
nob! craft tails faithfully, according,
to her chart, with all taut and trim
alov and aloft, ttudding sails out,
mainrall and spanker showing a capful
' the brer 7. , and the sunlight fhuhing
diamonds and rubies among the
. snowy foam in her wake aa she makes
- her way toward port with all cargo
safe and not n inch of water in her

seiuggy schooner Senate, that wants
to be a three-decker with Krupp guns
and dynamite aitilkry, narrow in the

dice against what was claimed as tbe
right of tbe Stater, and u strong con
solidated govornment has nearly ob
literated State lines. Monopolies are
conso!id::tirp ; indeed the money
power are pooling conflicting issue,
and cc-opomliuK in a policy which
make tbe rich richer and the poor
pcorer. In all part of the country
tbe railicoh are consaiidating, and
gradually all tbe road in the Union

cate, and thus will be lodged with
fjw men a power that will control tbe
country. Th Pennsylvania system,
with it 4800 mile of road; the Union
Pacific with its f200 miles; the Goold
Wabash system with it! t500 miles,
show that less than a score of
men are controlling property which
represents $1, 500,000.00 , and which
rttarns a revenue of more than $100,
000,000 per annum. These four com
panies represent much of tha propeity
value of tbe country. Should these
eydicate absorb others, a they will
do, it will be seen tbat one gigantic
combination will have a power tbat
will enable them to rule tbe country.
Capital united in such vast sum
leads to tyranny and oppression. ' Cor
poration are soulless and so are capi
ti'litj, and the consolidation and ag
gression of both have forced labor to
coniolidate, and tbe result is a fearful
war is raging between capital and
labor. This war will continue to the
gret detriment of the business inter

satisfactory adjustment by the states
manship of the country. Arbitration
is the only remedy. But the Congress
of the nation squabbling over petty
isiues, seems deaf, dumb and blind to
a contest which btrengthena the social
iats and agrarians, endanger the sta
bility of our institution, and entail
upon the poor families of the labcring
classes grekt Buffering. The breach
between capital and labor it widening
eve.y day. Strikes are on the in
crease. Capitil is consolidating and
so is labor. It is plain ti be seen that
the conflict cannot be reconciled by
the interested parties. The whole
country is interettd in the issue
which but been growing for years, and
will finally terminate in anarchy and
bloodshed unless adjusted.
THE fBKBK II PRINCE.
The world ha made wonderful
progress in ideas sines the first French
revolution in 1703, yet failure as it was
in its republican aims, there are Re
publicans in France to-day who want
to copy its pelicy as a model. One of
the old fragments of bygone policy,
that of banishing from Fiance the
princes that belong to fimiliei that
have reigned in the country, was put
before tbe Legislature there Inst week.
By the vigorous efforts and found
sense of Morsieur Freycinet, the
measure was defeated by a very satis
factory majority. Tbe Republican
who advocate B'jch measure as a safe
guard to the republic, are reallysuow
ing fear that the republic is so weak
tbat the p rent nee of these men in
France is capable of endangering its
existence. This is a'liibuting to them
a degree of power and influence they
can jsojsess oiily by Republicans being
untrue to their principles, and defi
cient in faith in them. When our
civil war was over, the adherent
to the Union did net think it lies ao
frail that Hi lead'ng opponents must
be banished. Tha first French re
public banished and guillotined its
monarehs and nobles wholesale, bnt
republic that could not live without
such cruelties could not survive with
them, and wai trodden underfoot by
the despotic Napoleon Bonapaite.
Within the dominion of France the
princes are under 'tbe eye of the
citizens, and within tbe control of tbe
law. Exile them and they will com
bine and conspire with their creature
and emissaries left behind, and trouble
will come as it did before. .A prince
under the republic is a cit'zen like the
rest, and ought to be nothing else, yet,
strange to say, these men who would
banish them make no attempt, such
aj good, sound Republicans ought to
carry out, to abolish their titles. Of
all absurdities to read in the
French papers and hear in
Fnn.h con vers tt'oa about princo
thie, duke the other, and marquis
aouit fiiug olso is onaof the greatest.
Let those who (ear the evil influences
of prinioi and nobles do as ha been
done with us require that no title
shall In conferred, and elevate the
princes and other nobles to the dig
nity of pure and fnll citizenship, un
sullied by mischievous distinction fit
only for feudal right and medieval
blunders. When thus advanced in
the political sphere, let them alone to
attend to their own business aa other
people do. It la well for France that
the ailly attempt to banish men that
onght to be only citixans ba so g-
nally failed, and it is a pleasure to rec
ognise that in Monsieur Freycinet the
French have a statesman who appear
likely to prove worthy to be the suc
cessor of tbe much missed Gambetta.
A ri'NBY PEOPLE.
The English speaking people are full
of drollery, oddity, excentricity and
inconsistency. They boast of the pro
g res of the age in which they live,
and then would have all thought, all
science to stop where their education
ceased, and ostracise those who, after
exploring the domain of science, ex
press certain theories in regard to the
heavens and the earth. We denounce
tbe Connecticut Blue Laws, the bigotry
which drove Roger William to the
wilderness, the burning of Servetna
witches and quakers, the whipping,
banishing and bebeadine of Baptists,
the power that compelled Galli
leo to renounce his throrv of
the earth's revolution, and the
fiat of the inquisition that placed
the "Epitome of the Copernlcau As-
- "-j uu iu nut ot promoited
books, yet the e persecutions were not
more intolerant in their day and gen
erations than the persecutions of Dr.
Woodrow, whose crinm consist in the
moTiftroui heresy of believing that
science or. turns the truth of reve'a
tion. Fancier and more inconsistent
still, we teach that the science
of tronomy U leplete with evolu
tion, and this theory is taught in ail
tbe leading colleges of the civil
ized world. Geology, aa now taught in
nearly all our universities Harvard,
Yale and Princeton la bnt a history
of evolution. It telli how tbe earth,
from a chaotic or nebulous mass, as
sumed a stratifl'd form and shape by
tbe band of Omnipotence, and bow
He developed and evolved the present
flora and fauna from others or Inferior
types. It if, therefore, no heresy to
believe that the earth evoluted into it
present shape; that at one time it was
n immense revolving, rotating mas
of frightful heat ; that it was for gea
cooling and condensing, during which
there were flung off large lamp,
which constitute the moon. Mean
while the evolution process went on
till the earth's crust wai formed,
which being of unequal thickness
resulted in the lofty peaks of the
Rocky Mountains as well as the
flat and rolling lands of the Mississippi
Valley. It no doubt took tbe earth
ages to evolute itself into form fit 'or
the habitation of man, beast and vege
tation. All nature' old artisans toiled
in the work of evolution. The river
labored in thegrand work cf evolution,
hewed out paths through the hills and
rcale their channels to tbe sea. The
sea in evolutlng made endless war
upon the shore uHil their boundariea
were defined. The channels secured
their rights by evolution. There was
much hubbub and conflict while the
old world was evoluting, as
business was being transacted
that was to endure forever. But at
last the sunlight came. Out of tbe
virgin earth the grass and flower evo
luted themselves into existence and
then the birds began to sing. The
seasons evoluted themselves into ex
istence and began their sublime pro
cessions. Men must have been born in
evolution, for they have been evoluting
ever since. They evoluted into tribe,
and banded together for protection. In
the hope of evoluting into a higher civil
'r.itioo tbey adopted an unwritten code
of laws. With the acquisition of prop
erty and territory war was born. The
battles were fought with sticks and
stones and the conquerors divided out
tbe spoil. The work of evolution bai
been going on ever since, and it will
continue te the end cf time.
coNHERVATinn or OIR BI-
The view of the historian Frcude,
published in the Appbal last week,
have much interest for American
readers. They Bhow that, with all his
conservatism, Mr. Froude imbibed
some excellent republican idea when
he was visiting the United States. He
acknowledges that the present position
of Parliamentary government in Great
Britain is radically defective, and he
sees th necessary correction can be
made only by the adoption of portions
of tbe governmental system of the
United State. The principal danger
in the English system Is that tbe ad
ministrative branch ot the govern
meet i wholly at the mercy of the
legislative practically of the House
of Commons alone. Without a major
ity in that house, the Ministers must
resign and others take their place
whom a majority will support. This
destroy the independence of the
executive by subjecting the remaining
in power of any existing executive to
the will of the legislative power. A
division takes place in the House of
Commons; tbe Ministry is In the mi
norlty and out they go. In a few
week the majority turns the other
way, and back come Ministry of tbe
same character as rxiore. ine voie
that expels the existing Ministers may
have no reference to the general policy
of the country ,but notwithstanding the
executive functions must go into
other hands. Tbe affairs of Eng'a ad, Ire
land, Scotland, Wales, the East Indies,
the numerous and extensive colonies,
and all the intricacies of f oreign policy
mutt pass over to other maragers.
Such changes, based upon the vote of
Parliament, upon individual questions
are no lee than petty revolutions
That serious danger may arise from
cuch A dominating of one branch of
the government by another is evi
dent. Oar own system allows
of change, but auch as affect
the administration occur only at defl
nite period and are made delibeiate-
ly by the people, not by a vote of Con
erest under the excitement ef heated
debate. Th I principle Mr. Froude,
and a large body of conservative in
England with him, wish to see adopted
there, so that the executive power
may be relieved from it day by day
dependence upon another branch of
the government, and act independent
ly of a mere Parliamentary vote
Time change, and a strange charge it
is to tee the once despised democracy
of the American republic pointed to
aa an arc of safety by English conserva
tives. Republicanism is Indeed mak
ing headway when auch thlokei look
to it principle as a refuge from de
fect in the monarchical system. Who
can tell what great and revolutionary
event are preparing, from the die
coverieathe English are making
dangerous defects in the system they
have ao long relied upon T When the
extent and nature of those danger are
Inquired into, will not the EDglish
people demand a settled constitution

lillilNNIXG OF THE HOUSE
leprfscutatlre Anderson's Resolu
tion Before the Committee
WiSHiaiiTosi. March 9. There was
full attendance at tbe meeting of tbe
House Committee on Poetcibce and
PostroaJa this morning called to
begin the investigation ordtred by
tbe House, of certain ma Mere em
bodied in the Anders n r solution,
"That tbe Committee on Postoffices
and PoetroadsJ is hereby' empowered
to ascertain wbtther additional legis
la'ion ia needed to prevent a monop-
ly oi the telegraph faciHie and se
cure to the Southern, Western and
Pacino States the benefit of competi
tion between tel'grapn companies,
and to protect the people of the United
State against unrrasocable charges
for telegraphic service."
Mr. Anderson was present and ad
dressed the committee briefly in ex
planation oi bis pnrpow in ottering
tbe resolution. His general reason, be
laid, was an organic opposition to
monopoly of anv sort, bnt specifically
in this instance his motive was to be
found in the state of affairs existing
between tbe Missnuii river and the
Pacific ocean, a rgion comprising one
hslf or two-thiidK of the art a of the
United States. Tha State he bad tbe
honor in part ti represent (Kanses)
wan a part of this region, together
with tbe remaining seven State end
organized Territories, was interested
in tbe matter of chap telegraphy, it
was also viUlly interettad in
preventing such a monopoly
of telegraphing as would deprive its
people and press oi tbe advantage and
safeguard ot competitive f tcilitie for
obtaining news. It would be shown
to tbe committee that in tbe chart n
of all of the land grant railroads, they
are n-quired to operate their telegraph
lines precisely ss they operate tbeir
rails, is ext. that they nave megauy
but subtUntially trantfwred their tele
graph franchises to tbe Western Union
Oomf a ly ; consequently when a rival
telegraph company reaches the ast
ern terminus of one of these roids,
instead of receiving from that com
pany, without discrimination, its bus
ness. they refuse to do so, or, at leas'.,
snbstaut a'ly refuse to comply
with this obligation ot their
charter. In other words, the
Western Union, so lit as tbat
whole area ia concerned, now having
a population of 8 .000,000 people, has
practical lv a monopoly, and it is car
rying it to such an exient as to show
a tondency to claim, in addition tome
recognized right of a common carrier,
a right also to gather and sell the
news of the day on its own account
II the committee would inquire into
this branch of the Bubiect it woild
find that tbe collection and sale of
election news and such important
matters ns a Pn sident' message are
songht to be monopolized by the
Western Union uorapany in come
instance?, and fint barefaced at
tempts had bson made by the
Western Union Company to coerce
newspapers into making exclusive
contract to tiarmct all tbeir business
by its wires, i lie committee would
eeaatonco bow such attempts and
assumptions threatened the liberty of
tbe press in the region which was suo-
ecttd to this mcnopoiy. it is nocture
of tbat fact, and because of other
matters uprn which he would ask to
be heard at a Inter date, that be intro
duced this rest! at ion.
Mr. D. H. Bates, president of the
nanv. wa) then sworn and examined
He furnished full icformation and
data in connection with tbe futile ef
forts of tbe Bak.innre and Ohio Tele
graph Company to huve it telegraphic

upon the same terms as tbe telegraphic
business trom otner teiegrapn compa-
nlo. mnA , inn 1 avl tf f t r m tha W M f .

the requirement of tbe case.

8t. Louis, Mo., March 9. An arti
cle printed here this afternoon, refer
ring to the seriousness of the situation
on tbe Missouri PHcifij railway, dis
cusses the matter in tbe fjllowicg
manner, and ft contains a great deal
of troth: "The railrcal situation t
dayia serious, but it is likely to giow
ncore alarming In ita aspect and ex
tent. There is no present hoped a
solution. That fact eeems to be thor
oughly understood and to be entirely
appreciated by both the lailroad and
tbeiremployee. The generally accepted
impreHtion is that the present strite
is to be made a test case, and that ita
solution can come only with the final
adjudication of the relative positions
which labor and capital are to occupy
in this country. The Knights of La
bor insist that tbe railroad managers
are leeponsible for tbe existing trou
ble, and tbat they are not only pre
pared themselves for the conflict but
are combined to push it to tbe bitter
ett extreme. The allegations against
the railroad managers go back a far
at the p'acingof tho Texas and Pacific
in the bands of a receiver, which a a)
done, it is claimed, in order tbat the
mad m'ght have the protection of tbe
Uoited titates courts. With tbe rail
road officials in this altitnde, it will
be uodtHtood that the strike
is only in it inception, and tbat any
apprehension that rray be felt is war
ranted by tbe situation and the out
look. The railroad men themselves
tay they want to settle at once and for
all tbe dependency cf either rarty to
the dispute upon the other. It Is de
clared most positively tbat they will
not yield, but will find out by the
settlement or solution to wbich this
strike comes, just whether capital is
in the future to control labor or labor
is to control capital. They declare
that they appreciate the seriousness of
the conflict, and will, if necessary,
push this situation lo a joint
where some solution matt be bad.
It would seem that the railroad
maraera mean just what tbey say,
for tbeir tactics are directly in a line
with the policy they have expressed
The Miecouii Pacific is not trying to
employ any men ti take the place of
the strikers, and does not appf ar to be
in any great hurry to have the men
resume work. The other loids bold
tbe same attitude. Indeed, the inch
nation of tbe read managers seem to
be in favor of leltiDg tbe strike settle
neoll. As an earnest ti their Inten
tion, they are discharging employes
who, by reason ot the at rue, nave
nothing to do. On the other baud, the
growth of the strike continuer, and
traffic, as far as Misiouri, Arkanea,.
Kansas and Texas are concerned, is at
at a s'andstill. The bridgo bands
struck last night, and tbe rumor pre
vails that a further uprising ot Knights
may be expected at any moment. The
moat important rumor ia tbat the em
ployee of the Chiiago, Burlington and
Q'lincy at St. Joe will inaugurate the
strike on that road, and that the Wa
bash men may alto be expected to
join the throng of strikers, and beforc-
the uoubie ends an tne ramoao sys
tems of the country will be involved
and the dispute will finally be reduced
to tight between raiirc ad corpora
tions and organized labor.
