Startling as the confessions of McLInn

of his office.
It Is said that in casooi an up rising
of the Chicago communists Gov. Cullom
could in twelve hours time throw five
thousand militia Into the city, which to
gether with the police and city regiments
would make an army ol about ten thou
sand men. Thi9 lorce it is considered
would be sufficient to lorcver wipe
out communeism inChicago.
Tnu practical oppcration ot the board
of equalization ol assessments in this
stato is well Illustrated by an instance
report Irom Chicago, and shows how an
attempt at equity may result In gross
Injustice A citizen ot Chicago bad $10,
000 in soma kind of securities; not a
dollar more. This ho honestly cave In
on the assessor's schedule and that
amount was entered against his name.
When the assessment ot Cook county
was revised by tho board, C3 per cent,
was added to b!1 personal property, and
the owner of ,tho $10,000 ot securicties,
found that he had to pay on $19,800, and
he alsodiscoveied there was no legal
way of escaping tho tax. From this
kind ol "equalization" some good Ionia,
hturo ought to try and deliver us.
. According to tho circular of tho
mercantile agency of 15. Q. Dun & Co.,
during the quarter which ended with
March, there were 3,350 lailures In the
United States, with liabilities amounting
to $S2.078,826, agalust 2.SD9 lailures, and
$54,533,070 liabilities in the correspond
ing period ol ls77, and 2,800 lailures,
$64,644,157 liabilities In tho first three
months ot 1870. The winter Just past
has been exceptionally trying to all
branches of trade, and the enormous
shrinkage of resources has contributed
to swell the figures ot the failures. It
should.be remembered that tho constant
extension of the mt-rcantilo agencies
brings into their classtkatlon a smaller
class of traders whoso wanta aro purely
local, thereby increasing largely the num
ber ol lailures reported and adding to
the total liabilities. Some cvidenco ot
this is afforded by the lact that while in
the Middle states there are 42 more fail
ures reported this year than last, there
are 24!) more reported from the Western
stated, which furnWh 1,218 out of the
Honors to a War LTorso.

itlnllouN. (Detroit Free Press.)
In speaking a short time since ot the
congressional prospects, we said that it
was couccded that tho Ecnato of the lor-ty-slxth
congress would be Democratic
and that thero was hardly a possibility
that tho house would pass out of DeiuO'
cratie control a a result ot tho comiog
elections. So lar as tho senate Is con
cerned the only question which is of in
terest to the public at large is the nmjor
itv which the Democrats will have in
th'ut body. It is hard-known that, It
every seuatorship which can justly be
regarded us doubtful, Is carried by the
licpublicanR. the Democrats will have a
clear majority ot lour tho senate In that
event standing : Democrats, 40; Ilepubli
cans, 35; Independents (Davis, of Illi
nois, 1. But while tho Democrats are
sure ol forty senators, the Kepublicans
aro but sure of twenty-six, while ten.
including tho Independent senator, cans
not yet be claimed by either party, as the
following table will show :

In this classification we have Included
a seuator from Louisiana iveuogg
who ha no real claim to the seat which
he holds, and who may be rousted there
from. Wehavo also lassuraed that tho
Republicans will carry tho New Hamp
shire leinslature at the next election.
Our Democratic friends in New Hamp

Republican that fairness requires that
they be given tho benefit ot the doubt.

Leaving out Senator Davis of Illinois,
it will bo seen that there are nine senator-

edley better than those ot their oppo
nents, ana tuey aro equally good in Nevf

as little as need bo expected. This
