Cninoi: Tho Hon. Attorney-aeneral
bit eono over to tbo public enemy, and Is
now acting in concert and sympathy with
the tax-dodgers of Chicago.
Specification: "The ItcpuWle Ufo In
aranco Company filed a bill In tho circuit
court of Cook county for an injunction to
Mttrain any stops being takon to collect
the state tax on Its property for any high-
er value than 541,000. Tho bll was a
fraud on Its faco, and so Judgo larwdl
decided and kicked the wholo batch of
windlcrs and tar dodgers,' with alt their
falso oaths, out or court. Tho conspirators
were brought to n, ttanditlll at once, and
found that tboy could not depend upon
Judicial aid to carry out tho swindle they
proposed. It was necessary to start atresh.
Hon. Jai. K. Ediall was elected
attorney goneral of this stato by tho peo
plo forth purpoio of sorving their intor
etts ; they pay hlui, and bo owes them his
time, all of his knowledge, and all his abil
ity, bo the same more or less. Hut in look
ing over tho field aftor their defeat in
court, the conspirators discovered that
Edsall could bo used for their purposes,
and they entored into negotiations with
him, which havo rcsultod in two egreed
cues being presented to tho circuit court
of Cook county for tho purposo of oppot-
ine tho collection of the stato taxes for
1873. It has beon agroed betweon tho at
torney for tho people on ono eido, and tho
attorney for tho conspirators on tho other,
that these cases shall bo carried at once to
the suprome court in ordor, say the tax
dodgers, that a decision may bo had osrly
Possibly we aro vory dull, but wo aro
constrained to admit we cannot bring our
elf to th'e conclusion that the action of
the attorney in this tnnttcr can be raited
into the dlcnltv of an iinpeachnblo of-
fonse. Indoed, a casual glance at tbo sub
Ject falls to convoy to our mind tbo im
pression that tho attorney general bas
been cuilty of any offunso at all. In fact
it appears clear to our mind that Mr. Ai

The tar-payer has a right to do that. Tbe
question can be docidod finally in tbo sup
reme court and not short of that court. It
is for tbo public interest to obtain that de
cision u speodily as possible. Tbo ques
tion Is one of law. Tho State says: ' I

the supremo court, to which it

Agreed," responds Mr. Hdtall for the
BUto; and Immediately tho 'ltoglstcr'
cries: "Impeach him." Positively, wo
would like to aid in the impeachment of
Edsall or anybody olsoto obligo tho ' Re
