I jSaTURDAY NOV. 9, 1878.
: Some of tbe members of the Con
stitutional Convention seem to
have become possessed with the
Mm that the new instrument
should contain provisions iv regard
to about everything under the sun.
A Constitution should bs a briel
lad flexible but comprehensive
document. While it should faith
tally guard the interests of the peo
ple, and provide against any disas
trous laxity, it should leave a great
deal to tbe Legislature. Iv pro
portion as its provisions are minute
and frivolous is tbe probability that
It will not be of an enduring char
acter, even if adopted by the peo
ple, and that a new Cenvention
would have to be called shortly to
remedy Us defects. Because tbe
State of California bas chosen to
call a Constitutional Convention it
does not follow that the present ex
cellent Constitution should be
changed from turret to foundation
•tone. The precedents set in
Amending the Constitution of the
United States are worthy of imi
tation. Those changes have al
ways been few but vital. We will
venture tbe assertion that the ma
terial amendments to tbe Constitu
tion desired by the people of Cali
fornia could be comprised in a hair
doien sheets of foolscap. The most
fatal tendency of late years is to
wards prolixity, and prolixity al
ways Involves confusion. The Leg
islature of a Stato should be ac
corded a very wide latitude. Tbe
assumption ought to be that such
bodies will, on the average, repre
•ant tbe wishes of the people, ant
tbe ability of the latter to give ex
pression by law to their varying
Bloods aud the ueeds of the com
monweallh should be hampered as
little as possible. There are some
people unsophisticated enough to
Imagine that it is tiie assertion o
aright In the Constitution of a
Htate which gives the common
wealth Ihe attribute of eminen
domain, tho power to control cor
porations, etc., etc. The fact o
course is that these rights are icci
dent to its very sovereignty, ant
pass without belugasserted. There
are others who properly desire to
cbeek Chinese immigration, am
who favor the idea that "Tho Chi
nese must go," who think tlia
It Is in the power of the
people of Califoruia to dis
pose of this matter iv their
organic law, without regard to
tbat provision of the Couatitutinu
of the United States which makes
all treaties with foreign powers
made by the President aud Senate,
a part of the supreme law of the
■Ind. Where there is so much mis
ooticepttau-af the scope aud purpose
of the Constitution nf a State it
will not be surpriseng if some
highly absurd provisions were to
creep into the document which
will next year be submitted to the
vote of tbe people of California.
Those who desire to see the work
of tbe Convention count for some
thing should guard steadily against
tbe accumulation of absurdities
and frivolities in its draft.
A Representative Senator.
There is no obligation of party
which withholds a Democrat from
giving a meed of praise to au op
ponent. The career of Boecoe
Conklingduring the past two years
it one of the notable incidents of
our Congressional history. He has
outlined the dignity and power of a
Senator of the United States more
OODapicuously perhaps than any of
for tho reason that
has been greater.
He has scrupulously refrained,
■Inee the day Mr. Hayes entered
the White House, from any act
-which recognized that person's
nominal headship of the nation or
party. He took up an attitude of
cold and pitiless contempt towards
the administration which stung it
worse than the most Uery and out
spoken opposition would have done.
Mr. Hayes aud his Secretary of
State, Mr. Evarts, declared for ven
geance, and theheadof every one
of Roscoe Coukling's friends who
held office was to bo taken as
the first installment of a spite
whose ultimate triumph was to be
the defeat nf Mr. Conkliug for re
election to the Uultod Stales Sen
ate from Now York. Mr. Conkliug
picked up the gage of battle and
beat the administration ou its
chosen ground. With dismay the
President found that he could uot
even remove, without- other cause
than their friendspip for Senator
Conkllng, a single ofllce-holder in
New York. The Senate of the
United States sustained Mr. Conk-
Hog from first to last. The Presi
dent was driven to tbe pitiable
necessity of waiting for the ad
journment of Congress to suspend
& Conkling's friends. But bis
o Wnlug inortifiaatiou is to come.
,Ie will be obliged to report Ibe
facte of these suspensions, with
hie reasons for I his aotion,
aud their restoration, in despite cf
the Presidential pleasure, is ex
ceedingly probable. But, however
tbis may be, Roscoe Coukling has
triumphed at all points, and he will
be his own successor by one of tbe
largest majorities ever given by a
New York Legislature. It is pleas
ant to know that Mr. Coukling
held Ihe carpet-bag members of
tbe United States Senate in as
much contempt as Hayes himself.
One of the incidents of the re-as
sembling of Congress after the
electoral count was the advent of
tbe carpet-bag Senator Patterson,
of South Carolina, who advanced
with extended hand to Conkliug.
The latter strode past the South
Carolina criminal without seeming
to see him. To his credit be It said
he bas always aimed to uphold the
dignity of his party and of the Sen
atorial oharacter, and if a Republi
can Senator must represent New
York we are heartily glad that
Roscoe Conkliug is the man. He
stands the victor lv an epic fight.
One of the comedy aspects of the
late Ulegrams is that " Pennsylva
nia Is redeemed." Perhaps somo
of the readers of the Herald do
not know the significance or this
gratulation over tbe fact tliat the
Dutch have taken Holland, or its
equivalent—the Republicans have
carried Pennsylvania. The great
State of Pennsylvania is simply a
closed borough of the Camerons.
Though it contains nearly four
millions of people it is really what
ln Englaud used to he known as a
"pocket" borough. The English
were wise enough, though England
is a monarchy, to abolish these
travesties ou popular representa
tion. The elder Cameron —old Si
mon—a man of many amiable
traits, by the way, is proliably the
most corrupt politician that ever
sat iv the Uuited States Senate.
He procured his first eleotlon to
the United States Senate from
Pennsylvania by the purchase,
with money, of Lebo, Manear aud
Wagonseller, an infamous trio who
sold out Col. John W. Foruey, who
was Cameron's oppouetit. The
next conspicious appearance nf
Cameron in our politic* was as Mr.
Lincoln's Secretary of War. Mr.
Lincoln dismissed Cameron from
his Cabinet on written allegations
of gross corruption signed by two
thirds ut tho Republican Senators
and Repreßeuatives in Congress.
For nearly twenty years old Simon
sat iv the United States Senate as
oue of the Senators from Pennsyl
vania; and, when he had grown too
o.d aud feeble to stand the wear
and tear any longer, he issued an
edict to the Penusylvauia Legisla
ture to elect his son Don. That
servile liody did as it was told.
The election of Tuesday in Penu
sylvauia shows that (he corrupt
harpies who surround the Camer
ons, owing to the third party
of National Labor, have suc
ceeded in again chaining a
great State to their chaiiot wheels.
It means that Don Cameron is to
be his owu successor. And this is
called "redeeming" Pennsylvania !
God save the mark, say we. We
confess that we are not without
hope of hearing that this vulture
section of tho Republiciu party,
though heralded as successful, have
bad their game blocked. It may
be that enough National labor men
have beeu elected to the Legisla
te c, added to the Democrats, to
render "Woodson's little gamfc" of
We publish in our local columns
a communication from a "Demo
crat," who seems to think that
everything has been cut and dried
for the mass meeting called to nom
inate a People's ticket, which as
sembles in the County Court room
at 7:30 this evening. We sympa
thize in the movement for nom
inating a municipal ticket irrespec
tive of politics, and wo heartily
trust that Democrats and Republi
cans will attend tbe meeting as near
as may be in equal numbers for the
single purpose of securing eligible
nominees. We hope Ihere will be
no desire to take any suap judg
ment on any one, or to air parti
zau sharp practice. There are
many excellent gentlemen amongst
those named by out correspondent,
and we feel assured tliat they would
be the first to discouutenauce any
such tactics. Democrats may be
certain of a fair hearing by attend
ing in large numbers, and we hope
our Republican fellow citizens will
also be represented.
We flud the following in the
mining items of the Bali Francisco
A group of mines iv Resting
Springs district, Xnyo couuty,about
200 miles from Independence, have
been sold to San Francisco parties
for $40,000. Tbe parties are about
to build a mill, having contracted
with the Cerro Gordo Freighting
Company to haul machinery and
materials from Mohave. The
country Is represented to bo well
timbered and watered, and the
mines are large and rich.
These mines are distinctively a
portion of the back country of Los
Angeles. A number of our most
enterprising citizeus have been
engaged for the past year or more
in developing them and we are
glad to note that genuine work is
promised. We have beard most
flattering things of these mines
from judicious prospectors.
We publish elsewhere a tabu
lated statement of the complexion
of the next House of Represents
lives, complied by the Chicago
Timet. This table gives the Re
publicans 132 members. We re
peat tbat tbe Republicans will
have, at tbe outside, 125 members
decidedly under than over that fig
ure. There are a number of things
to be straightened out in these
tables. A week will do It.

The doubtful district in Illinois
is tbe Seventeenth,now represented
by W. R. Morrison, and has usually
shown large Democratic majori
ties. The Greenbacker elected in
the Fifteenth Illinois district was
opposed only by a Democrat and
probably received a great number
of Republican votes. Tbe Green
backer in Indiana was the joint
nominee of the Greenbackers and
Democrats aud will be most likely
to act with the Democrats. The
two Greenbaokers were also joint
nominees of the Greenbackers and
Democrats. The Third and Tenth
Kentucky districts are still in
doubt, with the chances about even.
One of the Greenbackers in Maino
was elected by the aid of the Dem
ocratic vote. The Missouri Green
backer was opposed by a Democrat
and probably received the strength
of the Republlcad vote. The Green
backer in Pennsylvania will proba
bly act with the Republicans. The

Chicago, Now. Bth.—A. Times
Camp Robinson dispatch says: Dull
Knife yesterday, addressing the
friendly Sioux and Red Cloud, who
bad been urging them to baoome
reconciled, said, "We came back,
my friends, to live with you. We
went south by the advice or whites.
We were driven to desperation, our
women and children died of disease
and hunger. We would rather be
shot than live in that country and
we cams north where we bad been
well treated. We want to live
witb the Sioux and be at peace
witb the whites. Some of our
young warriors ran away from us,
murdered whites aud escaped
north. None of us have dene
wrong aud all we want is peace."
Turning to Lieut. Chase be said,
"Let us go. We ask for none of
our property. We will walk to
Red Cloud agency and live in
peace, but we can't go south. We
were always well treated here by
'Three Stars.'(General Crook.) We
were taken Irom our country to a
strange land. Tell the Great Father
and General Crook about us."
To whloh Lieut. Chase replied,
"The Great Father and Gen. Crook
know about you. You are subject
to their orders."
Iv an interview with Lieut.
Chase afterwards, lie said, " All
ludiuns are good as soon as tbey
are captured or killed." Theße
very Cheyennes have trophys of
murdered whites. They have
shawls of women, bed clothing that
could only oome from homes whei •
women were mistresses., and chil
dren's clothes evidently taken from
white families on their murderous
march from the South.
