fchusirc opjuinents of the hill, continues to
quarrel at and denounce it us a law. Its
ravings arc ahsurd and ludicrous.

railroad funding hill. AVe Ulicve he
will. Much us he owes to the
Gould-Huntington gang, he dare not
in-ult public opinion hy refusing to sign a

as it becomes a law whether he signs it or
It is asserted in some quarters that Seak
Handall's new rule is aimed particularly at
the Texas and Pacific railroad bill.
Should the bill come from the Semite, as it
is likely to, the motion to go to the .teak
it's table and take up the bill for consider
ation would Ik' ineffectual, us a single ob
jection would send it to the lmttom of the
calendar of the committee on the whole,
where it would not lie reached this con
gress. There is no probability of its jms
sa'e in the house.
Gov. Cu.MM has received a letter from
Sheriff Webber, of St. Clair county, stating
the details of the stoppage of a train on the
Cairo Short Line railioad in that county by
a mob of miners. The sheriff states that
he does not anticipate any further disorder
which the local authorities may not lie able
to suppress, but he thinks it his duty to retort
tfie facts. In reply the governor urges the
t-hcrirT to lie active and vigilant and to ex
haust all the power of the civil authority
lK'fore culling on the militia, but he says
that if necessary he is prepared to send an
adequate force to the county to suppress all
disorder. The governor has no official in
formation as to the riot and burning of the
coal shafts at Staunton.
The Memphis Avalanche is one of the
most moderate and reputable Hadical jour
nals in the South. Ordinarily it is courte
a;s and fair in its treatments of public
questions; but the bare mention of investi
gating the great fraud's title throw it into
si paroxysm of rage. It affects it as a red
rag tiffwts mi angry bull. This is all
wrong. It should possess its soul in peace.
The Democrats do not intend any haste in
the matter, and even if successful will con
duct the affairs of the country with prudence
und moderation. Those of Haves' ap
pointees whomuy be in office, who have
behaved themselves, are honest and capa
ble, and who have not made themselves es
pecially offensive, may he permitted to re
tain their lurid ttin the public teat a little
longer. The Avalanche should control its
temper. There is really no ikciimoii, just
jiow, for losing it.

The Escx statesman i nothing if not
sensational in the political line. He is re
ported to have said that it was the purjiose
of the Democrats to establish pnf of the
fraud which placed Hayes in the presideii

gress DciiKXT.itic after March next refuse to
recognize Hayes, and by AVhcvler becoming
president have a new election ordered. No
sign is clearer than a longing desire on

with proper "fruits ni"ct for repentance,"

alt nether too soon for the prodigal son to
dictate the course to le pursued by the for
giving father. Humbleness of spirit, wv
know, is foreign to the General' nature, but
we advise him to exercise a little uf it
awhile at least. Silence and a back seat is
the medicine we prcscriU' for him jut
OUR DISTRICT DUTY OF DEMO
CRATS. In ISM eight of the Coui.Tcssi.wal dis
tricts of Illinois returned Demnntic nu m
Urs to the rational house of representatives.
In this district the majority was only
twenty votes, Mr. Hartell. the Demo
cratic candidate, running ahead of his
ticket. The Republicans carried it for their
presidential electors and State ticket.
From this statement we are lead to the
conclusion that the Democ ratic candidate
this year may not secure a very easy victory.
This conclusion will le rendered more in
evitable when the fact is recalled that Col.
Wiley (paradoxical though the statement
may appear) put himself, without his own
knowledge, to a great deal of trouble to de
feat himself. How he did this we need not
state;but it is generally admitted now. welie
lievc, that he was the weakest candidate the
Republicans could have nominated. The
closeness of the district the doubt which
hangs alxmt the result of the contest may,
if properly taken advantage of by Demo
crats, lie converted into an element of
strength and success. The duty of Demo
crats is plain. They should enter the con
test with a standanl-liearer whose Ktrength
and Kipularify in his own party is conced
ed ; one who is able and willing to make a
thorough canvass. The national adminis
tration of affairs is on the eve of passing
into t!.e hands of Democrats; and this
is being hastened to consummation
by the disintregation of the rotten old
concern that has planted fraud in the most
exalted position of the republic and earned
an historic infamy for the corruption ami
abuses which have sprung into being under
its protecting agis. Xo time could be
more favorable for Democratic success in
this district. With a man broad enough
in his views to comprehend the changes
going on in public sentiment; with intelli
gence enough to understand the caues and
events producing them, and with ability
enough to impress clearly these causes and
events tion the public mind, the Democrats
uecd have no fear of the result.
Throughout the district a thorough or
ganization should be had, and to effect this
an early canvass must le made. Any one of
a half dozen Democrats might lie mention
ed who would achieve success with g)od
organization and early nnd protracted work.
SOUND RESOLUTION THE WAGES
The Democracy of Illinois, at its recent
convention in Springfield, again asserted its
right to be considered the friend and watch
ful, ndvoeate of the interests of those who
earn a livelihood "in the sweat of their brow ."
By a resolution adopted at that convention
they have declared that wisdom jMiints out
and justice demands that the men who work
our mines and operate our railroads aud
great manufacturing interests should he
protected to the extent of their Wliges
by a first lien upon the property of their
employers. Had such a law la en enacted
years ago the hardships and suffering en
dured by the laboring and working classes
would have been avoided. The working
classes depend upon their daily earnings to
supply themselves and families with the
necessaries of life, and when thev me
w ronged out of them want and misery in
evitubly follow. Good authority asserts.and
humanity and common honesty vindicates
its truth, that the labircr is worthy of his
hire. Hut in these kiting times, so far, at
least, us many corporations are concerned,
the honest custom nf giving a man a fair
day's wages for a fair day's work and pay
ing such wages is more honored in the
breach than In the observance. It is not
uncommon to see a poor railroad und starv
ing employ. of the subordinate class, but
a poor railroad manager or oflicer is as rare
as Christian charity. He is not to be found,
Itanium would pay his weight in Mexican
dollars for such a curiosity, and reap a
harvest from the investment. The officers
and managers never fail to take care of
themselves; their salaries are paid, w ith all
the perquisites. It is dignity and '"brains"
that is worthy of its hire not labor. The
law demanded by this resolution in
the Democratic platform will nut
lie opposed by the honestly managed
mines and railroads of the country, and we
have many of that kind. It is the advent-
titers who take hold of mines and railroads
. , . .. ,
for their own aggradlZeinent nnd profit.
Utterly regardless of the interest of the
. ,.. , , ,
pubhc or the welfare of tli-s. who Work
under them, who feel aggrieved at the res-
olutionsand who are waging war oU the
party that dared call attention to their
enormous abuses and demands a reformation
of them. Had such a law been ill force
five years ago but few railroads would have
song.it r,iv,Ts and thoSe,l,at were honest-
ly put 111 the hands ut the receivers would
.n Use every endeavor to get out and get
into an hont and competent management
controlled by the corporation itself.
