Senator Schurz clonics the report
that he intends to remove to Chicago
after the'eipiration of his present term.
The Cincinnpti Enquirer says: The
Faiinerniovemnt secmsto be fonnid
ahle in the West, but the Democratic
party is furnishing the "Hamlet" in
that play. .
The Cincinnati Enquirer refers tortn
Indiana contemporary as enjoying bad
health that "it is constipated by nine
columns of government advertising, and
its opinion isn't worth a tinker's im
precation." TnE Director of the Mint at Phila
delphia telegraphs Secretary Richard
son that private parties in Chicago sent
to the Mint thirty thousand ounces of
silveriforjeoinage, which-they will pay
out for change.
The First National Bank.of Washing
ington, it is now stated, will pay its
creditors from the present assets, about
50 per cent. This was the bank in
which ex-President Johnson had 73,

It has dawned upon a good niany
Republican newspapeis since the Octo
ber and November elections that their
party is carrying a pretty heavy load,
and that something must be thrown
overboard to prevent disaster.
The Columbia Mail believes Judge
Pete Turney is right in his reported
preference as to who should be the suc
cessor of Chief Justice Chase. The
Mail adds: "In our opinion A. 0. P.
Nicholson has no superior as a Judge of
Law, on the continent."

The foolish fowls generally crow before

ly every County Treasurer was defeated
for re-election, and many of them seem
to be terribly alarmed at the general
overhauling of books that must follow.
A local journal says: "The Jackson
County Treasurer takes time by the
forelock and announces that $20,000 of
the funds in his keeping were stolen the
other night by burglars."

The New York Tribune of the 1th
inst. reports a better feeling among
manufacturers, but says suspensions
will continue to take place occasionally,
perhaps for quite a while. It adds:
"Reporters of th? Tribune liavc made in

are not so great, as many have supposed.
The elfect upon the real estate market has
been depressing, causing prices and rents
to fall greatly. The tobacco manufacturing
interest, seems to be less aliectod than al
most any other; sales are not reduced, and
many of the manufacturers continue to
employ their full force of men."
The fact is mentioned by the Pitts
huryh Post that "in California, where a
dead set was made against greenbacks
from the word go; where their currency
is composed of gold and silver coin,
and of paper redeemable on demand,
we hear of no panic no stoppage of

The Postmaster General makes some
exceedingly silly decisions, not the

with having decided that to affix print

to a postal card, whether with or with
out writing on the same, is to make the
card liable to letter postage. A whole
newspaper will go through the mails
for one cent, but a fellow is not per

The Washington llcpublican states
that while the "silk stocking Republic

at work to secure his election to the

ed :is if he would have a clear majority
in the next Legislature. But the Bos
ton Journal assures Gen. Butler that if
he attempts to secure Senator Sumner's
seat in the United Stiles Senate in 1875
he will fare no better than he did in his
campaign for the Governorship.
Speaking of the financial panic,
which seems as severe to-day as at its
inception six weeks ago, the Clarksvillc
Tobacco Leaf remarks:
"Nobody felt the Credit Mobilicrcxpose.

that the people neither saw nor felt, do not
now see or feel it.
"But this panic is felt in their down sit

The first step toward lailroad reform, in
this country, is to insist that railroad pro
peity shall 'pay dividends on its actual cost
for track and equipment only. Until man
agers can he restricted to this, we shall
liave the tlirough shipper favored at the cost
of the local shipper; worthless lines will be
built, and the dividends paid on the stock
out of the profits of through lines that lease
them; the whole producing, tailoring, com
mercial, trading and traveling public will
be swindled whenever opportunity offers;
the big fish will cat the little ones in Wall
street until they burst of very fullness and
set the financial world into utter confusion,
causing widespread suffering, bankruptcy,
fuin'and starvation among the classes that
they have systematically -robbed .of the
means to carry on their gambling opera
tions. "But,"' says a well-fed director
whose pockets are bursting with Green
Line profits, "how arc you -going to strip us
of our vested rights?" Your vested rights
confer on you no ownership of the Ameri
can people and give you mo Hen on their
labor. Yoiir charter gives you no carle"
blanche to steal, and if they do we would'
very suddenly divest them. 4Wc would in
finitely prefer "Cajsarism" or' any respecta
ble form of desjwtisin to your vulgar tyran
ny and more vulgar robbery. Chattanooga
Very true, so far as it goes. But
there arc several elements which our
protective-tariff contemporary leaves
out of the problem. He argues that
railroad property should pay dividends
only on its actual cost, wholly ignoring
thcfacJhat the actual cost has been
more than doubled by the tariff on iron
of which. tracks and equipments are
mainly composed. Radical class legis
lation has -thus doubled the cost of rail
roads and doubled the dividends which
capitalists demand. Here is a grievance
far more serious than the "watering"
of stocks, which our contemporary de
nounces, for we believe the stock of no
railroad has yet been watered to over
double its original amount.
Another notable and widely opera
ting cause in increasing the actual cost
of railroads has been the almost uni
versal custom of building them on
credit No individual can build any
thing so cheaply for credit as for cash.
Still less can- any corporation, public
or private; and the larger the enter
prise, or the greater the venture, the
greater will be the difference between
actual cost of building on credit and
that of building for cash. Thus, again,
the actual cost of our railroads has
been greatly enhanced above their in
trinsic value, and the dividends de
manded of the people in the way of
freights proportionately increased.
Nor are we disposed to hold the peo
ple themselves entirely guiltless in this
matter of building on credit. The
people have frequently voted away the
credit of towns and counties and States
to push premature railroads, when they
knew perfectly well, or ought to know,
that their bonds were being sold or
hypothecated often at half their value
at half the amount that the (bonds
call for on maturity. The evil day of
payment has been thrown far into the
doubtful f uture, but in the meantime
capitalists are drawing double interest
on their investments in these bonds,
and the actual cost of the railroads, as
compared with a cash standard, has
These various causes, supplemented
with the watering and pooling and bull
ing of Wall street gamblers, have made
the actual cost of our railroads several
times as much as their intrinsic cash
value. The inflation could not last for
ever. There has been a tumble in the
fictitious figures of Wall street, and
those who have bought at fancy prices
must suffer. The crash of September,
still unabated, is but a natural effort to
reduce tho price of the railroads of the
country, not to their actual cost merely,
under extravagant management, but to
their actual value. We doubt that all
of them, if any, have yet reached that
inexorable standard of intrinsic worth.
Nothing short of another speculative
furore, now most unlikely, can ever .re
store the prices of early September,
until the natural growth of this youth
ful country gives them the increased
business requisite to earn dividends
that will raise their market value as in
vestments. TJIE BUJtXIXG OF CIS HOUSES.,
The frequent burning of gin houses
and their contents in Georgia, has elic
eted a good deal of discussion in that
State. From a letter from W. LcRoy
Brown, published in the Augusta
Chronicle and Sentinel, we make the
"The frequent notices recently published
of the burning of gin houses, and often of
the fire originating during the operation of
ginning, has suggested what, in some in
stances at least, may ue regained as a jrob-
able cause ol the lire, and therefore worthy
of consideration, and of the use of means j
to prevent its occurrence. It is possible j
that ignition may be caused by electricity
generated by the continued friction of the
rubber or yutta pcrclia band. We do not
mean to say that this is always the case.
We only regard the cause as sufficient, and
therefore infer that in some cases the true
cause of ignition mav be in the electricity
thus generated. It is verv common in the
lecture room to ignite by electricity, ether,
alcohol and other inflammable substances,
as raw cotton mixed with jKiwdered rosin,
etc., and it is possible to generate enough
electricity with a few feet of gutta icrcha
tubing to ignite other substances. We
infer, therefore, when the atmos
phere is very dry, such as we have liad for
some weeks, the electricity generated by
the friction of the band may become of
such tension as to ignite, by the passage of
a spark, the waste cotton near the gin.
That is, when all the conditions arc favora
ble, it is possible this may occur.
"Did we know tiie facts in regard to the
biuning of the gin-houses, such as the
character of the day, the when and where
the lire was first discovered, etc, the amount
of probability in favor of this supposed
cause could soon be determined. There is
no danger to be apprehended from this cause
except when a rubber or gutta pcreha band
is used and the atmosjtherc is very dry, and
then the remedy is simply to ice the band.
Out of abundance of caution I wouldthere
fore suggest when these bands are used, and
the atmosphere is very dry, that they be
wetted three or four times a day. This
could be readily done by the driver pour
ing on gradually a cup of water near the
. The author of the above is President
of the State Agricultural College of
Georgia in connection with its Uni
versity, and his suggestion is worthy
of consideration. If a fire is kindled in
a gin room when the machine is at
work, it would be seen by the person or
persons attending the same. But no
one sees the beginning of these disas
trous fires, and generally they occur at
in'ght when not in operation, and all
believe them to be the, work of incen
diaries. The honest laborers who gen
erate the assumed electricity could not
fail to see the burning of the gin houses
and report the circumstances. Their
destruction haB grown into an epidemic
mania in Georgia, with a tendency to
spread into other States.

doubt be accusing the Democrats of

the Democrats do their own do in Ohio

whether they let somebody else do their

"There seems to be a probability that the
prices cliarged by our first class hotels will
soon be reduced. A chance of this kind
has long been desirable, and is especially so
at present, notels bills are a large item of
expense to the business community, in
times like these, when everybody is care
fully counting Ins spare cash and closely
calculating his income, the cost of staying
at a hotel will often, when the question of
going to a city to make purchases comes up
for consideration, serve to turn the scale in
favor of a negative decision."
This movement should not be con
fined to New York. Hotel charges are
too high all over the country, and have
been a serious drawback to travel, either
for business or pleasure.
The New York Bulletin thinks there
is as much currency in the hands of
the people to-day as there was two

They are afraid to invest it in securi

People are full of suspicion, and, what

If nothing more had been accomplish
ed by tho Ohio election than the over

State and securing the re-election of
Senator Thurman to the United States
Senate, there would have been abund
ant cause for rejoicing on the part of
the friends of good government. But
the Democratic victory in Ohio has a
significance of meaning. 1. It means
that the principles of the Democratic
party are still dear to the patriotic
masses, and that when they are main

means that the people are determined
to put down the rank corruption abroad

We have long suspected that the of
ficial duties of the executive were too
heavy a burden for one man to bear
with comfort to himself or credit to the
country. The above telegram confirms
our suspicion, and leads us to volunteer
a brief suggestion. While it is for
many reasons advisable that a Presi
dent elected to superintend the admin
istration of the government should be
at the seat of government as frequent
ly as possible, it seems to be equally
necessary for him to attend army re
unions, patriotic clam-bakes, agricul
tural fairs, art and mechanical ex
hibitions, the laying of corner
stones and the unveiling of monu
ments. The country might manage to
get along tor a while without any eov-
ernment, but it is doubtful whether it
could or woidd stirvive if an embargo
was laid upon reunions, clam-bakes,
fairs, exhibitions, corner-stones and
monuments. President Grant takes
this view of the case, and, accordintrly,
with that spirit of self-sacrifice for
which he is remarkable, employs Ins
time, spends his money and risks his
life in rushing hither and thither to
lend the light of his countenance and
the dignity of his presence to festive
and other occasions too numerous to
Men andbrethern.thisoughtnot so to
be. We must have two presidents, one to
stay at home and attend tobusines, and
the other to travel about and play the
ornamental and the agreeable. The
working president could then remain at
Washington as closely as Jefferson,
Jackson and Lincoln did; while the
playing president need never be there
except on pay-day, and hold himself in
constant readiness to accept all invita
tions to shows which are not complete
without the presidential presence.
Many difficulties would be obviated by
this arrangement. It is very hard to
