The Pniladelphia Bulletin ia afraid that
the Democrats in Congress will pass a bill
taking away the lrgtl tender quality of the
greenback, and "set all the credit of it."
And the Chicago Tribute says if they
should do so they would find it the worst
"credit" that ever achieved on a question
of public policy.
The-Bepublican convention to be held at
Chicago stxt summer will be the fourth
national convention held at that place.
The first was that which nominated Lin-
cols atd Hamlin in I860; the second was
the Democratic National Convention of
1864. wh'en McClellan and Pendleton were
nominated; the third was the Republican
'National Convention of 1S68, which nom
inated Grant and Colfax.

morals of the people of the United States is
a lane contract for the Postmaster General

ALL SPIRIT ur.
The sew California legislature is all
split up. From a pamphlet just issued by
the Secretary of State, in which a complete
list of the members is given, the recapitula
tion shows that there are seven different
kinds of polities represented in the Beaste
aad nine in the House. The Senate con
sisU of forty members, divided as follows :
Republican, 22; Democrats, 5; Working
men, 8 ; Workingmen and New Constitu
tion, t; Workingmen, New Constitution
tut RannhHrsn 1 New Constitution and
Democrats. 2: Workingmen, New Constitu
tion and Democrat. 1. In the House there
there are eighty members, divided as fol
lows: Bepublicans, 37; Democrats, 14;
Workingmen, 17; New Constitution and
Republicans, 2; New Constitution and
Workinemen. 3: New Constitution and
Democrats, 2; Workingmen and Republi
cans, 3; New Constitution, 1 ; Union, 1.
The Republicans have a clear majority in
the Senate, and lack but four in the House,
which number they will doubtless be able
to pick up from among thoae of Republi
can predilections elected on fusion tickets.
When the Legislature gets to work there
will likely be but three parties to consider,
the Bepublicans, Democrats and Work
ingmen, and it is easy to see that the Be
poblicass will hold the control.

An enterprising add ingenious person ia
Boston has just written a book to prove
that St. Paul really lived long before the

this "the most radical attack ever made oa

HOW IT WAS DONE.
Everybody remembers the great Chicago
Savings Bank failure when Spencer, the
President of the bank absconded, taking
with him the funds of depoeitrs to the
sum of hundreds ol tnousanus. spencer
hat now been found, somewhere in Europe,
has been interviewed by a newspaper re
porter, and gives the public view of the
inside working of the concern, showing
how it was done. The Tribune gives an
account of how Spencer obtained control of
the stock, from which we copy as follows:
... . . . ..
Spencer's first purchase ot Jhe mock was
prob.bly a tona Jlde payment of money
which he drew out of the Cook County Na
tlonal Bank. After he had secured aplaoe
in the management ot the Htate Savings In-
Oltntlon, however, and liaa oegun to Day in
ail thn stock he could set in order to secure
complete control of the. Institution, the pro
oeas seems, from mi own aamuBioun w
have been something like the following:
"Jones," we will say, was the owner of 11.000
worth of stock, for which he had paid 1100 In
cash and given his note for I 00 ; Hpencer was
willing to give "Joups" 00 per oent lor the
latter's stock, or H.OOG: thereupon Bpencer
gave 'Jones" the latur'rf note for 1900 and
deposit-d hUown In place of It. and also
took 13,100 of the money in Dana: iuciuukiur
to the' depositor;, paid the sum over to
'Jones," and deposited anotner oi nis ( speu
cere) notes for the amount of money tnus
Withdrawn. Bpencer scarcely aisguisea mm
plan of operations In his statement "of the
.,.ir Mi,un,. Indeed, he saya : "The
Htockbolders knew all the time tnat I was
borrowing the money to buy out their Insti
tution." It Is only thle theory that can
ratmnallv account lor the enormous sums
represented by apencerM nou. If Bpenoer's
statements bo truo, ll is apparent that a large
part of lhelostht Ml upon me aepoBiwr"
went Into the pockets of the 3lociho!ders
hnmldoutto Spencer. haying been taken
from the vaults by the Utter to make'the payment-,
and that the original stockholders re
ceived about W.0W of the depositors' money
for every 1100 of their own which tbey put
Into the concern. It is evidently with regard
to these transactions that Spencer declares
himself able and willing. If te Indictment
against him be removed, to point out to de
nmiinni "how aurt where they may find
property, If not money, to reimburse them
selves for their loaiea." This tatement is
inntlv based npon the assumption tha
the selling stockholders knew whereSpenoer
was getting the money to pay lor me sioc

"Why, he issued his proclamation recog

"Do you mean to leave the inference,
then, that the fusion legislature in Maine

that which caa be drawn from the state

"Your committee, in eubmitting tleir

There are many'returns which, owing to
fatal defects, were not counted; but we
specify only those which have affected the

"Article 4, part first section t, oi tne

Two eeta ot returns were sent in to the
Secretary of State from the town of Fair

and itfwas impossible, from the contradic

"Accompanying and attached to the Re-
Eublican returns from the town of Skow
egan, there was a statement signed by
the selectmen that a certain aumber
of .ballots were protested to as being illegal
under section 29, chapter 4, of the
revised statues. One of the ballots objected
to was attached to the returns of the se-
lectment, in their certificate of how many
such ballots were thrown, and in this cer
tificate thev inform the Governor and
Council that they make the return sub
ject to the legality or illegality oi tnat
kind of a ballot. The ballot was in tne
form of an ordinary sheet of paper, folded
to make two leaves. On one of the pages half
the candidates' names are p'inted and on
the next page the balance ot the names o'
the candidates appear. We are fully sat
fied that that kind of a ballot is clearly in
violation of the letter and spirit of the
fnftftminfn.namMi ntatnte and we have ac
cordingly rejected a number of these bal
lots in making our tabulations.
"A protest was filed against counting the
returns from the town of Cherryfield, on
the ground that the officers who attested
the returns were not legal officers. The
affidavits presented with the protest estab
lishes the fact that not one legal selectman
presided at the making-out of the returns
and the receiving of the votes. One of the
selectmen was a foreigner, and could not
legally hold the office of selectman.

board of town of town officers consisting
of lees than three is not a legal board.
Acting on this opinion, we have rejected

"Several nroteatfl and affidavits to Sup
port them were referred to ua, asking the
rejection of the returns on account of the
legal defects in calling the town meeting ;
also on account of improper check lists.
The copy of the record presented to us
from the town of Skowhean shows that for
the election in that town only one copy of
the warrant was posted, and the record does
not show that one was posted in the town.
The objection to counting the vote of the
city of Aubnrn was made because the
Goveraor Garceloa reached'the city this
aftersooB. Only two of the Councillors 4
were here, No business" was transacted.
Govesor Garceloa was seen to-day and
said he knew nothing further of the
Baagor affair than what bad appealed in
the newspapers ; that for judicial reasons,
he had ordered French verbally to remove
the arms aad ammuaitioa. He thought
the whole matter waa one of great discredit
to the city.

Notwithstanding the adverse criticism of

The hezard of euch an atrocious crime
