much confidence in tbe veracity of tho

'that county." In this controversy, al
though we know the 'Gazette' to be one
ot the most truthful papers in tbe country,
wo are inclined to side with tho 'Rosrii

INVOKING FEDERAL INTERFER
Our neighbor of tho 'Sun' it agitated
because "our aiombcr" did not vote in
tbo lower houto of the goneral assombly
ot tho stato to instruct our senators and
invito our representatives in congress to
use all their influenco to securo the pas
sage of a law by congress regulating the
freighti of alt railroads passing through
cither of tho states or botwoen the statct.
"Our member's" action in tblt matter
wat wise. Tho question of congressional
control of railroads it a most important
one, and in tho consideration of it conclu-
tlont thould not be Jumped at. "Our
member," and other members, was not,
and it not yet, certain that congress under
the clauso of tbe United States con
stitution giving to congress power
to regulate commerce between the states
on regulate freights, although he is In
clined to believe tbe authority might go
to that extent; but ha doubts tbe policy
of invoking congresi to meddle with the
railroad question. Tho peoplo must not
bo sold out, and there can bo nothing
moro palpably a fact than that the rail
roads own congress, and would, in all
probability, soil out tbo interests of tho
peoplo to the dangerous corporations
which now control tho lobbies of Wash
ington. Tho vice president, tho vice pro
tident elect, senators and representatives
have been purcbatod by the Credit Jlo
bilicr, and tho railroads can do again
what it has done.
cn' goes for him every day. Senators
think that he ought to rite in lbs senate
and explain, and they only bold back from
an Investigation becauto he goot out at tho
end of this session, The 'Chronicle'
whines out lame defenses in doleful tones,
and tries to make his, the senator i case,
lost black bv intimating that it cost Mr
Allison three times at much to be elected
as it cott bin), (Harlan), whon be wat
elected. That only coes to show that Har
lan was hard to beat, and that the prico of
votes ran ced hlghor on that account
Poor Harlan; cant and hypocrisy are no
lunger potent, and he presents the show
and pitiful picturo of n religious fraud in
all its deformity.
