The two most important things
to bo done during this session of

United .States Senator, and re-dis

caucus held last Thursday evening,
in which Senator Sherman was re
nominated, insures his re-election
The open 'and frank manner in which
this was done, and his large majori

strength is great, and that the peo-

to the general rule,was thrown open
to all. Both houses of the Legis

At Columbia, South Carolina, the
Ku-Klux trials arc finished for the

ranging from one month to two

Even while the Ku-Klux are stam

signified a determination to drive
every negro from Enyette County.
The day is past in which such
threats can be seriously made. The
defenseless people of the South,
black or white, have the Govern
ment of the United States for their
protectionj and it may as well be
understood that they will be defend
ed even if it takes the whole power
of the nation to do it.
RUSSIA AND JAPAN.
War between Russia and Japan is
one of the possibilities of the near
future. That the Japanese govern
ment has taken no active steps as
yet to resent the seizure of the Is
land of Saghalicn is by no means
to be construed as a pacific accep
tance of that act by Russia; and the
removal of her center of action in
those seas b' the latter power from
the port of Nikolaievski, at the
mouth of the Amoor, to that of
Vladivostok, close to the Chinese
frontier, and practically in Japncsc
waters, will, it is thought, bring
about a collision. Th more
wc hear of the Japanese, however,
the more "knowing" a people they
seem to be, and perhaps they have
the rare wisdom not to bark before
they arc ready to bite. When the
steam fleet they are building is fair
ly afloat, that time may, in their
judgment, have arrived.
No very general movement for the
relief of the famine struck people
of Persia has ever been made in any
part of the civ lized world, though
some spasmod ; action has been ta
ken in parts of Europe; yet, accord
ing to late accounts, the famine is
unabated in its terrors, and the con
sequent suffering is" undiminished.
Previous contradictory reports may
well be set aside, for the latest state
ment seems worthy of credence. Is
it not time that the Christian world
did something for afflicted Persia?
CUSTOM HOUSE FRAUDS.
Despite the persistent efforts mad?
to create the impression that the
committee of Congress appointed
to investigate Custom House frauds
would not honestly perform the
work assigned them, they are evi
dently unearthing evil practiccs,and
seem to be thoroughly in earnest in
searching into any evils that may
attach to the order system. It is
clear that they arc inspiring intense
anxiety among the gentlemen inter

necessary to state that all America's

Democratic members of the Legis

made affidavit under the Ku-Klux
act that Governor Warmoth and his
colleagues in he State Government
siding with him, together with his
adherents in the Legislature, were
combining and conspiring to pre
vent the execution of the laws. The
United States Commissioner issued
arid-twentjisix others, and the writs
were served by the U. S. Marshal.
The next step was the movement of
the Warmoth party upon the State
House, which they occupicd,and by
impressing some stray Democratic
members who could not escape in
time from the neighborhood a quo
rum of the Legislature was formed,
the proceedings of the other faction
in the Legislature declared null and
void and a new Speaker elected.
The anti-Warmoth faction, headed
by Speaker Carter, held a meeting
in another place and declared the
Warmoth party in the State House
not to be a legal Legislature. Plans,
it is reported, were concocted for a
movement in force upon the State

one drawback, it is slightly Demo

see the error ot its ways and come

We met with the only mishap during
onr trip W est As the train was go
ing along at a pretty rapid speed, a
two-horse team was run into, which
was in. the act of crossing the track,
instantly killing one horse and so
crippling the other that ho had to
be killed instantly. Thus in less
than three.minutes two horses were
killed and some man out of pocket
several hundred dollars. The pas
sengcrs did not know anything of
the occurrence, the shock not being
felt, until the tram stopped and the
conductor and others started back
to see what damage had been done.
Whether tho team was in the act of
running away or the driver attempt
ing to cross the track before the
engine, was the cause of the acci
dent, we did not learn.
All r ight again, and away we glide

Wc'have thus given a running de
scription of our flying trip to the
West, and only wish -to say some
thing as to the
CLASS OF PEOPLE THAT LIVE WEST.
We have heard it said and inti
mated that, generally, it was the
ignorant, shirtless people that gen
erally emigrated west, while we
admit that in the west as in the east
can bo found people of all nations,

there are less of the shifting, mouth

ulation, in tho west than in the east
A man or family that think they will
go west and live there without work
ing or doing much, miss their calcu
lations very much. It is work, en
terprisc and energy that has made
and is making the west what it" is,
and that is the kind of people sought
after and desired there. A loafer
has few friends. Go into any of the
western towns and you see every-

pleasant and accommodating people
cannot do lound auywherc.
Winter-is of course rather an un
pleasant time to vi3it the western
prairies, but sitting by a warm stove
and having good company there is
no occasion to be lonesome.
The west politically, as a general
thing, is Republican, which, of
course, accounts for its prosperity,
for never was our Government on
sounder footing or on better terms
with all foreign nations than it is
now under the rule of the great Re
publican party. It is this party that
has made the Great West what it is,
bv offering great inducements to
emigration, not only from eastern
states but from foreign couutrics.
But it takes people of all classes and
conditions to make a great country
likc this, and it would also be a great
uimuiuiui: io una people were tucre
but one political party.
inc west is quite jealous of the
east, and therefore strains every
nerve toward progress, and is well
compensated too for what it does in
tins direction, jjiu some of our
Eastern and Middle States, and es
pecially somo of the towns iu those
States, show tho same spirit, there
would bo less old fogyism, towns
would prosper better, and sometimes
find less difficulty in securing rail
roads than they do now. Indeed,
wc are of the opinion that if some of
our old towns here in Ohio, could for
single week watch the stir and bus
tie of a busy western town, many of
them would awake from their slum
bers and show a spirit of new life.
But wc will leave our readers here,
and if they have been benefltted by
aii3'tliing wc have said, nil well, if
not, wc presume it is all well also.

"We have heard Mr. Colfax express
himself freely and frankly on his in
intention to retire from public life at
the expiration ol the time lor wlitcn he
was elected, and of his earnestness and
desire to do so, there is not the least
doubt, and he has many reasons for so
doing, no received eignt nominations
by his party for Congress , and three
unanimous nominations by his political
associates in the House of Representa
tives for Speaker. He was nominated
for Vice President on the ticket with
General Grant in spite of geographical

Another reason for Mr. Colfax desir
ing to retire to private life is that he is
by no means a wealthy man, in the com

Mr. Colfax is an excellent business man
and has many good oners awaiting ac

salaries, some of which he would no
doubt accept but a desire to live in this
city, where he has been a citizen for
over 30 years, and for whose citizens he
