O SCHOOL WHEN IT RAl!f.
The llocton school board has made use

will or will not be held ou Inclement
days. At a quarter past eight in tho

bo very Inclement, tho lire alarm bells
strike twenty-two, which being Inter
preted, means that no school will be held.
Iu this nutter of no school on raluy
days, tho .example of Boston might bo

storm signals or not. Hoys and girls

In this emergency, It Is of llie utmost
Importance that th ablest and coolest

at stake, should assume the Initiative and

Iftlieiire'ent disgraceful condition of
aftalrsln Hie city of Chicago' shall teach
"Its ablest and coolest-headed citizens
who have large Interests at slake' a Ics
son they very much need to learn, It
will not have been ntt unmitigated evil.
In Chicago ns In most other cities where
there are large commercial and
manufacturing Interests, the men
whose business matters are
centered In these, and the respectable
classes engaged in professional and other
pursuits, as a rule, take little or no per
sonal interest In municipal af
fairs. They are ludlOerent to
tho procestcs of city elections; they
neither hold olllcc, electioneer nor vote.
Tho consequence Is that n certain chifs
of men get possession of the municipal
government, and, as In Chicago to-day,
corruption, at first fearful, cowering,
working In the dark, becomes bold, dell
ant and impudent, and Is only routed by
some such extraordinary measures as arc
now proposcil by the reputable clement
Contrary to their own option In the
matter, this class of cltlens have been
forced Into a participation in municipal
ullalr.s. Private inclination would never
have taken them there. Accuse of public
duty would never have taken theui there.
The fact that they afo being shamefully
robbed, boldly plundered by rings of pub.
lie robbers and tax thieves Is the potent
Inllucnoc that has made municipal poli
ticians of them. Tho truth l, thc-u In
dustrious business men, tlicc dainty,
good men, these respectable, de
cent men are as much to blamo fur the
alarming condition In which Chicago
finds herself, as the opposite class,
the ring-chiefs, tho tax-plunderers and
their horde of blowers and strikers arc.
Tho good men, criminally neglectful of
their public duty, have allowed the reins
of the city government, to pass Into the
hands of the enemy. Scrupulously ab
senting themselves from the polls, they
have permitted a few public-spirited citi
zens to bo beaten again and again in un
equal contests. "The good citizens have
now found out, that In city politics as In
everything else, Heaven helps
those who help themselves, and vice
vena. "Jiang tho bummers to
the lamp posts" cry tho outraged citi
zens of Chicago. If each stark and still
bummer wero paired with a stark and
still respectable citizen, one ot tho men
who has been too good to voto, too moral
to go to the polls, the sight would be a
lesson to a class ot community who
ought to learn It that no American citi
zen Is Justified in neglecting to exercise,
at every election, his privilege of voting,
and also, that it Is an Imperative duty, as
well as a privilege.
Twenty-five thousand citizens of Chi

forth tho corruption which has charac.

citizens to bury party distinctions and to

honest and efficient city government, and
provide that a Joint committee of Repub

A DISREPUTABLE CAMPAIGN.
0. W. Davidson, Esq,, Moxmopth,
I i.i.. Dtar Sir: have received your let
ter of the d lnt, hi w hich you My :
"Some one under the frank ol John A.
Logan, T. S. S., has sent mo what pur
port to lie a Humming tin of .Mr. Illalnc,
yourself and others on the proposed am
nesty bill. Vour speech is so
eliminated and garbled that, from It, no
one can correctly Judge your position."
A short time before receiving your letter
a gentleman kindly placed Iu my hands n
copy ol tho pamphlet to which you refer,
and I havo carefully examined It. It pur
ports to contain tho speeches ol Mr.
Illalnc, Mr. Qarlloldaud myself on what
Is known ns the amnesty debate. I ilnil
my own speech most grossly and adroitly
mutilated. Many entire sentences are cut
out, and ninny other .sentences and para
graphs aro cut up and garbled with a
manifest purpose to alter and misrepre
sent the real meaning, temper and argu
ment of thn speech. I nut Informed that
this fraudulent pamphlet has been sent In
great numbers into thu State of Now
Hampshire, where nil election Is soon to
bo had. and also Into nil the Northern
States, under the frank of leading l.'epub
llcaii". who aro members of thn Senate
and House of Representatives.
Now, my dear sir, I do not know vour
polities, but there are expressions InSour
letter which show you do not love false
hood, and this Is enough to justify me In
addressing you this letter.
I do not know who got up this dlrlv
pamphlet. It Is a deliberate falsehood
and a studied attempt to deceive. Evcrv
man who sends It to another, Willi
knowledge of Us character, Is guilty ol
the falsehood and avows thereby his de
sire to deceive the people. Every lionet
man to whom u is sent will leel insulted
and he is insulted.
Tho great iuestIon Is. what effect will
such deigning falsehoods have upon the
people ! it. is nau enoiigii to Know mat
men deemed worthy to hold hlirli imsl
tlons of honor should he guilty of Mich
dishonor. It Is sadder to know, as 1 do
know, that this falsehood is only one of
the many : or. Indeed, part of n system
adopted hero to conduct and control the
elections to bo held Iu lt-70. Hut I repeat
the question Is, what will he the ellcet
unon the people? ill they ho ollcndcd
or will thev bu Influenced or controlled
liv falsedoods so deliberately Planned
anil circulated expressly to deceive them?
I called tho attention ol one ol tno oesi
Kepubllcans Iu congress to this pamphlet
desiring him to see how ho regarded It.
Ho laughed, and said: "It Is had. I ad
mit, but It Is politics, and you must ex
pect it." Is this true? Is this politics?
If so, Is anything safu? Have we reached
the point where leaders are willing to de
celvu the ncopio and the people aro wil
ling to be deceived? If so, our greatest
statesman is the greatest liar in the
country ! Of course, reduced to Its last
analysis, tills means that the capacity of
the neoplo for self-government has failed
and our free lustliutlons must perish
through a process of falsehood and cor
ruption. Tins will exactly iiiiiui me
predictions of the enemies of popular
government so often repeated. This
brings me to wnat i cmeiiy now uesire to
lii a letter like this I can not "o Into
details, hut I will make some suggestions,
which the tliouuhtlul patriot ought to
consider with most unselfish solicitude.
Heretofore when a republic, has reached
civil war a hopeless decline has set In.
nils is not true oi monarciucs. nicy
often come out of civil wars not only
strengthened, but vastly Improved. This
is notaiiiy eo oi urcai nriiaiu.
Hut uo free people ever had a clyll war
who did not have a sequel of otllclal
imbeciles and corruption. Thu reason
for this Is both philosophical and logical,
It Is this: Civil wars far more than for
eign wars, producu chiefs who aru ele
vated to tue nigiiest civil positions, j ue
succcssiui taction is cerium to uiiiko u
civil head of Us military leader. These
mllltaryclilels rarely possess tho quail-
llcatlous necessary lor civil administra
tion of free Institutions. Freo govern-
inputs nrn nhvnvs morn eomnllenti'il than
monarchies, and therefore, require higher
?uallllcations for wise administration,
do not care how honest or how patriotic
such military chiefs may be. yet not hav
ing the, training and quaiiucauons needed
tor civil statesmanship, iney arc certain
10 du Kurrounucu auu controlled uy de
signing followers and llattercrs, who
will us certainly, as naturally, and as
logically follow as any ell'ect will
follow Its cause.
In all lrce countries parties will be
formed. In many respects these par
ties are salutary; but whenever tho ques
tions become sectional , and thu parties
form on sectional Issues, the tendency Is
to civil war. Tins has been our late. and.
i tear, win uc our ruin.

The supremo court ot the United States

So the Republican party was a sectional

It terribly done!
Now what U left for the ltepuhilean
parly to do? It has forced tho accoin
pllshment of all Its work. Tho Southern
people havo give up slaveiy, give up se
cession, submit to reconstruction, and ac

1 opposed disunion as no Northern man

union, and ns tending to destroy our free
Institutions. Subjugation and reconstruc

of union ns was seccsdon lo tho tact of
union, and l have slinplv been mi earnest
enemy to distinction hi any lorm. And
It does seem Impossible lor a liepuhllean
writer or speaker to 1 ell the truth or one
even so humble as myfclf. I havo made
one speech In emigre; " -forced to do so

but they havo lllled their papers with the
most unmitigated talahoods ns to my
life, habits, characlcr and antecedents. I
have seen circumstantial details purport
ing to come from personal acquaintances,
and even quotations from letters and
speeches, which had not t'io slightest ex
Hut these thhiL's do not siitpilio tue
Indeed. I should ho surmised if these
lalsehoods were not frequent and tin
scrupulous, and often from men In high
places. 1 hey prove the correctness ol
my theory of the present and future of
tho ltcpubllcau party. 1 maintain that
that party has accomplished all the work
It was organized to accomplish, and 1111
parly can live, alter Its work Is done, and
not become corrupt. No successful
nartv In a civil war can administer fi te
institutions 011 the passions ot il.e
war, mill alter the war was ended, and
not destroy tho liberties of the
people. No parly Is entitled to bo trust
ed with power for what It has done. Thu
only title a p.uty can havo to be tru-lcd,
must rot hi what it propo'cs to do. Tho
Democratic party Is now only entitled to
trust becaii'o events and the nature 01 ex
IstliiL' Mies compel It to antauoul.e the
Uepuhllcaii parly, and thusncces-atlly lo
become tne party 01 retrenchment, re
form and sectional reconciliation. No
truly great statesman can remain hi tho
Kcimhllenn party, lor the Plain reason
that its work Is In the past, not lu the fu
ture. 1 ou might as well expect a man
to satisfy his hunger and support his sys
tem ou the memories ol past leasts, as to
expect a statesman to lead 11 party and
maintain thu prosperity of Ids country
on thu mere memories now passions
nl past achievements. I doubt not. If Mr.
Lincoln were llvluir hu would Im now a
zealous Democrat. So would he Chaso
and Sumner and (Srceley and Seward.
Such living state.-jncli and patriots us
David D.ivK f.yrtrJrii Trumbull. Carl
Schurz, Charles 1 Adams and
Nathaniel P. Hanks, can not remain
In the Republican party. I am watch
ing to see who, In defense of his .self-respect,
will leave It next. They will be
compelled logo. Thieves and demagogues
aro taking natural, logical possession ot
the Kepublicaii party, not to accomplish
great works, but to have 11 general carou
sal. They will drive statesmen and pa
triots out of It. as decent, virtuous wo
men would bo driven out of n liou-c
which had become a brothel. It. under
such leaders as will remain, tho Kepub
licaii party will so iullticncu tho pas
sions ol the people ns to renew Its lease of
power, it win unng uisgnice on its past
history as certainly as the passing ol
events, nnd It will bo a miracle If, iu the
riot that must toiiow, our republican sys
tem shall not perish.
Aeveriiad any people such a test ol
their capacity lor. sclt-government ns tho
American people will have in 1S70. They
will bu crammed with reckless f,ilehooils
and piled with appeals for sectional bate
ns never before disgraced any year In
