If more nonsense lias been writ
tea ou one subjeot than another in
California It is upon the Pacheco-
Wiggiuton contest. For a long
time the result of the electiou was
In doubt aud Anally Pacheco
claimed his seat by a majority of
one vote. This was his prima facie
case, and on a purely prima facie
ease of one majority the
Supreme Court of this State
ordered Mr. Pacheco's certificate
Jo be issued to him. The Oali-
Court did not pretend
to examine into the merits of the
controversy, because they knew
that, by express Constitutional pro
vision, the province of finding
oat who Is elected to either body
rest* with each house of Congress.
Ia the fullest plenitude of express
delegation, not implication, each
House Is made the judge of tbe
qualifications of Its own member.'.
Wigginton, in the proceedings be
fore the Snpreme Court, sought to
go Into the merits of the case, but
that tribunal very properly de
clined to entertain a line of inqui
ry which, both by law and prece-
dent, belonged to a Congressional
Committee. They found Pacheco
elected on tbe face of the returns,
and they directed the proper State
official to give him a certificate of
election. A Democratic House of
Representatives seated Mr. Pacbeco
until Its committee could make the
proper investigation. As a result
of an elaborate Inquiry, conducted
by honorable men, a majority of
the committee reported that Mr.
Wigginton had receiveu such n
number of fraudulent votes, Mr.
Pacheco had received such anoth
er number, and that, throwing the
fraudulent votes received by both
out, Mr. Wigginton had a fair ma
jority of four of the lawful votes—
nearly forty thousand—cast in tbe
Fourth Congressional District of
We now proceed to the next act
of tbe drama, and we particularly
ask the attention of Republican
bellowers and writers of mushy
bathos to this point. At
the proper lime the report
of the Election Committee
of the House came up for action In
that body. A Republicau member
got up and moved that the report
be recommitted to save Pacheco
bis Beat for a while, at least, what
ever might be the final result. Then
rises Mr. Garfield, of Ohio, Hie ac
knowledged leader of the Republi
can side of the House, who an
nounces that ho is not prepared to
say how he will vote. He is fol
lowed by another Republican mem
ber in the same vein. There is uot
a single allegation— uot a solitary
whisper—of a partisan decision.
The aotion of the Republican lead
er of the House paralyzed the mo
tion to recommit the report, and
Wigginton, in consequence, got
the seat to which the people elected
Now how long does it take a man
of common sense, even though he
baa Republican, to weigh the sig
nificance of such an action as this?
Mr. Garfield has no sympathy with
the Democratic party, he cerlaiuly
does not wish to increase tho Dem
ocratic majority; but, like an expe
rienced man of affairs, lie could not
afford to force a debate which
would benefit neither his party nor
himself and in which both would
While we are ou this subject, we
will just call attention to one cir
cumstance. Mr. Pacheco was al
lowed to lake his seat at a time
when the Democratic party was
doubtful of its ability to organize
the House of Representatives. He
received his certificate from a Dem
ocratic Supreme Court, and a Dem
ocratic Governor and Secretary of
State, of California, at a time when
they could not tell but that
"they were injuring their own
party. Their action gave Mr. Pa
oheco a vote in organizing the
new House at a time when Repub
lican patronage and blandishments
were being used to influence that
organization in the interest of tbe
fraudulent administration. Now
that Mr. Pacheco's fate cannot
affect the standing of tbe party,
the Democratic House given the
representation in that body from
tbe Fourth District of California
to the man whom the people have
elected, aud we say amen.
In all the long line of the Popes,
many of tbem illustrious for pro
nounced civic, sacerdotal and per
sonal virtues, there was not a more
■potless, amiable or able man than
Pius IX. It la remarkable that
most of the Pontiffs who selected
tbe title of Pius have been persons
of splendid moral and intellectual
gifts. The Pope Pius over whom
the first Napoleon tyrannized was
■ man of transcendent moral
warth and winning individual pe
culiarities. The conqueror of
Austerlitz confessed to the Count
de lac Casas that he never entered
th* Pope's presence without an in
voluntary feeling of respect. He
Was master of tho captive Pope's
person, but was dominated by the
majesty of his soul. Pius IX. was
one of tho most accomplished men
of his age. He was characterized
by a comeliness of peisou which
bi9 contained aud temperate life
preserved to a very advanced age.
He was originally designed for the
army; and, iv the graver chroni
cles, his selection of the chinch
was ascribed to his being subject
to epileptic fits. A more romantic
origin is given for this choico of
the church, which probably bud
some foundation in fact, tuid this
was an unfortunate love affair.
These veracious n.t.:.. lives eveu go
to the extent of .-dying that
the object of the Pope's
early passion walled upon
the venerable - -Pontiff la the
Vatican, some years ago, and ob
tained tbe appointment of her sou
to a position iv the Papal Zouaves.
However opinion may differ al to
tho wisdom of the declaration of
the Pope's infallibility, and to the
Pope's determined clinging to his
temporal power, there will be a
universal concession, all over
Christendom, from nou - Catholics
as well as from tho attached body
of his own Church, that, iv losing
Plus DC, the oldest Christian
church loses a Pontiff of groat
vigor of intellect, spotless integrity,
a piety bordering ou that of the
hermits of oh! and a mini who was
recontmeuiled to men of all races
and religions by a rare and win
ning amiability of character. It
was astonishing what a number of
persons, coming from different na
tions, and speaking different lan
guages, the Pope could address in
their own tongues, speaking the
language selected with idiomatic
purity and force.
There has been a steady element
of comedy in tho Eastern war, and
it is embodied in the attitude of
England. Crisis upon crisis, like a
veritable Pelion piled upon Ossa,
has characterized the tight little,
blight little isle since war was de
clared. She lias realized the char
acter of the heroine in tho comio
song, "First she would and then she
wouldn't." itfhe has been every
thing by turns and nothing long.
First war, ami then peace, gains the
ascendancy in her Cabinet. She has
shown all the variableness of an
April day. In the vulgar but forci
ble language of (porting circles,
those who are impatient of long
speeches and puzzle-headed coun
sels, heartily hope that Great
Britain will cither "put up or shut
up." There is a limit to human pa
tience when a nation which was
wont, in the bid da3'B, to havesome
influence in European aft'aiis, shows
all the weather-cock qualities of a
sort of international Jim Crow. We
see that the British fleet is now en
route to Constantinople. Doubt
less, when it gets Into the sea of
Mar mors, it will be ordered hack
to its old station. Atil thus does an
once powerful nation emphasize its

Belmont's rejoinder to Hendricks
on the silver question puts tbe lat
ter in a bad fix for any future
Eastern support as a Presidential
candidate. When Hendricks was
reminded of his speeches in 1869-73,
reeoguizing the duty of paying
United States bonds in gold, he de
clared that his views then were that
they should be paid in coin, not
waiving gold, but Belmont shows
in reply that, whatever his views
were, he said In gold, exclusively
in gold. Belmont tslls Heudricks

trines he now enunciates, the as
sumptions of tho Paris commune
were clumsier attacks on the rights
The Timtu says: If the proposal
to debase our coinage does uot lead
to a reconstruction of parties it is,
at least, having an unmistakable
effect in dissolving them. One of
the best points in Blame's speech ou
the silver bill was the argument
that the Ctovernment could not af
ford to pay laborers with depre
ciated coin while it sent abroad to
China trade dollars of greater value,
which were used for payment to a
degraded labor system. But all
propositions for a silver dollar
heavier than 412J grains are scouted
by tho partizaus of Bland's bill, ev
idently because they want nothing
which will rail to give a standard
of values lower than the present
value of greenbacks. It is paper in

becomes clearer the chance of pass

Lorzo thought the next Pope would
be a mail of liberal views; Cardinal
Saccohi said the next Pope would
unquestionably bo more liberal;
Cardiual Guido said that, while
maintaining tho practices of tho

avoid everything like exaggera
tion; Cardiual Bilio, in reply to a
question as to the chances of li is at

he was too young to be Pope; Car
dinal Di Luca thought the new
Pope would be chosen from among
the moderates; Cardinal Jean Bap

erate Pope; Hoheuelohe hoped the
next Pope would be a zealot; Car
dinal Bonaparte said the uextPopo
will be a continuation of the ideas
and policy of Pius IX and would

Beraudi wanted the next Pops to

Washington, Feb. 9th.—Argu
ments relative to tho Northern Pa
cific Railroad bill before the Seuate
Railroad Committee were closed
to-day. Col. Chapman, of Oregon,
strongly urged the extension of
time for the completion of the main
line, coupled with Senator Mitch
ell's proposition to aid the con
struction of an auxiliary road to
Salt Lake and to provide equal
righ-s for both oompauies to con
nect or use a toad in common
along the Columbia rivor. Repre
sentatives of the Northern Pacific
Company, at previous sessions of
tho Committee aud In newspaper
articles, have strenuously objected
to the Salt Lake railroad proposi
tion upon two grounds, arguing,
first, that it provided for a rival
road, and, secuudly, that the en
actment would embarrass the nego
tiation of their bond*. Col. Gruy,
the attorney of tbe Nortiieru Paci
fic, to-day surprised the committee
by abandoning these arguments.
Iv reply to a question addressed to
him by Senator Davis, hb distinct
ly stated that, if his company were
assured of the desired extension of
timo, they would not object to tho
Salt Lake proposition and that
they opposed it only because they
feared it would impede the passage
of the bill. Senator Wiudom, a
member of the committee and a
strong exponent of Minnesota sen
timent iv favor of the Northern
Pacific, also remarked that he had
no objection to the Salt Lake pro
ject on the ground of Its prospective
rivalry to the Northern Pacific
road, but regarded Mitchell's prop
osition with favor because he
thought its adoption by the Com
mitter would lessen the chances of
lavorable action by Congress on
the essential extension of time for
the completion of the main line.
Senator Mitchell expresses the pos
itive opinion, however, that his
proposition for a short transconti
nental route to the north-west will
wiu more votes for the bill lv the
Senate than can possibly be lost by
it. The probability of its adoption
by the Committee appears to be

London, Feb. Bth.—Despite the
popular tumult here and the Par
liamentary action, I still maintain
that the bent judgment of thinking
men Is that no general war will
grow out of tiie Eastern question.
Russia plays a bold game but knows
when and how much to yield. The
Czar wantsull the resultsof hiscon
quest that he call hold without
further war, but will not peril all
by insisting on too much. In con
sidering tho present situation read
ers should remember three points:
First—Don't confound Russia's
conditions of peace with the condi
tions of tho armistice, they arc not
Second—Turkey has abandoned
England as an ally ami substituted
her conqueror. This lievldent from
the' care with which tho Porte
guarded the secret of the conditions
ofthe armistice which have ena
bled the Czar to effectually block
Englaud out of an opportunity to
occupy Constantinople and control
the question ol the Dardanelles un
der pretext of supporting Turkey.
Having failed to ilatico when Tur
key piped, tho Porte intends that
England shall now dance to Rus
sian music only.
Third—Germany is tho arbiter.
What Berliu withholds its assent
from St. Petersburg will not press
to war, because her finances forbid;
what Berlin approves Austriacan
not dispute; Eugland then will be
j without au ally and British seuti
meut will not sustain a war
against a RtiSBO-Turkish alliance.
Russian diplomacy has gained a
brilliant triumph in bringing Ser
ver Pasha to Us views. It is this
which has put Russia's array in a
position where, in a single day,
they can occupy Constantinople
and siege tho Dardanelles, not
as conquerors but as an nlly of
Turkey aud by her consent. What,
then, can Eugland do hut wait pa
tiently for the conference to which
tho whole question must be refer
red? Her game is blocked and
her unquestioned valor powerless
in the presence of moral forces
stronger than physical. Turkey
needs a protector. England has
failed her iv that capacity. The
sick man has chosen a new doctor.
How can England object? The
continental powers might insist
upon becoming consulting physi
ciaus, but they won't fight to force
the Porte to remain under Eng
land's care. Everybody sees that
if Englaud had worsted iv the
Russo-Turkish alliance she would
herself have occupied Constantino
ple in advance of Russia and by
force. Nobody, therefore, sympa
thizes with her, now that she has
been euchered by Russia's brilliant
trump. Some accident, of course,
may extend the conflict, but it is
uot probable, because Englaud
will get all the protection for her
iuterests that she is entitled to and
will have no ally iv seeking more.
Bea les, however galling to Brit
i 11 ;irido, recent events are thut the
study British sense will see that
be change in the polioy of Turkey
i.as utterly obliterated auy pretext
for British intorvention to main
tain Turkish independence.
