COLFAX AND THE TRlllL'.VK.
N'aw York, Dec. IC.The editor of tho
lirooklyn I'nion. who is an intimatu
friend of Mr. Colfax, says in bis papor
this evening it Is not yet cortain that Mr
Colfax will take the position of editor of
the Tribuno to which he has been Invited,
but it is probable that he will.
CAL'lE Of THE DEI.AV.
The obstacle to his acceptance Is not of
a pecuniary nature, bul one affecting the
future course of the paper. Tho proprie
tors, or a part of them at least, desire that
the paper shall be continued as an inde
pcndenl or neutral journal In politics, but
Mr. Colfax is a statesman- of positive po-
litical principles, and with a reputation
that he cannot atford to falsify, und ho de
clines to accept a position which would
compromise him before the public or feller
thu exercise of his judgment.
CONDITION OF ACCKPTANCF.
His friends and tho people who wi'h
well to the Tribuno will bo glad to learn
that If Mr, Colfax consnt to take the
editorship it will bo on a condition of per
feet freedom to act uccording to his judg
ment und his convictions. On any other
terms hit editorship would bo a deception
and u serious mistake. It seems therefore
that Mr. Colfax's torms aro absolute
editorial control, and it it this point tho
