PROCEEDINGS OF THE GENERAL
Springfield, 111., January 29. Mr.
Hamilton's scheme providing a coinmUnon
to frame a revenue law is favorably regarded
by members of loth houses. Whether
this favor of the plan is occasioned by the
fact that each of the 204 members of the
general assembly leels that he is certain of
leing choH-n as a memlH;r of this fat com
mission, yonr correspondent will not under
take to say. The commission is to consist
of thirteen members three from the senate,
rive fi oiii the house aud five chosen
by the governor, of citizens outside-
the legislature, the selection of
the laKt live to be confirmed by tho
senate. Choosing the five citizens outside
the assembly may also have the effect of
making the proposition very strong with
the people of the state for the same reason
that it is popular with the members, that is,
every prominent man in Illinois will con
clude that he is peculiarly fitted for mak
ing a revenue law. The commission is to
sit in vacation, and when its labors arc
completed the fact is to be reported to the
governor, who is to convene the general
assembly in special sess;on for the solo
purpose of considering tnd enacting this
work inm a revenue law.
LIKIl IXsniAXCK COMPANIKS.
Tho senate judiciary committee have con
sidered Mr. MoClelhn's bill in relation to
life, inuranc companies and will recom
mend its postage. The bill provides that
no lilc insuruice policy shall be forfeited
ni consequence of non-pnyment of premi
ums fora period of a year after such failure
to pay. if there are dividends coming to tho
insured, and that suicide of an insured
shall not lie w t ip as a defence by any in
surance company against the payment of a
policy. The simc kind ofa bill parsed the
senate two years ago, but was defeated in
RA1E OF INTEREST.
The house juJiciary comuiittco on the
quest iou of interest have agreed to leave
the legal rato ef interest as now fixed by
law (0 percent) but have reduced the con
tract rate nt iniercst frem 10 to 8 per cent.
This eummitlei has also stricken out the
"schedule elauie" in the present exempt
ion laws of tli i- state.
The governor this murniti reappointed
the present railroad ami warehouse com-
misMoncrs, sending to tho senate the nunien
of Messrs. Smith, Bogue and Ohcily tor

Washington, January 27, 1879.
There wa no progress in legislation of
consequence l,lf,t ,Veek, except the agree
ment of th two houses on some of the
appropriation bills or, rather, the agree
ment of the hoiue, to all the extravagant
amendments made by the senate to such
bills. This was especially noticeable iu
relation to tho post office appropriation bill,
to which, on Saturday, the house agreed to
the addition ol many hundreds of thous
ands of dollars.
If Democrats needed anv vindication for
demanding a large reduction in our naval
appropriations they had it in Senator
Blaine's speech last week on the subject.
Ho thinks we unnecessarily spend many
millions in that way. To be sure, he was
arguing to get some of this squandered
money to aid in building up our merchant
mariuc, but the use ho wishes to make of
the money makes no difference in the fact
that it has heretofore been unnecessarily
spent. His plan is to subsidise lines of
steamships to South America and other
parts of the world. He says this would
not only increase our trade enormously, but
will give us a large number of the best of
sailors to draw from whenever we might
have need of a navy.
For many days there has been great in
terest felt in the coming struggle in the
senate over the New York custom house J
nominations. The administration will use
all its influence to secure their confirmation,
and that Conkling will do his best to pre
vent it. The vote may be taken at any
The committee on transfer of the Indian
Bureau is equally divided, in numbers, on

that effect to bo introduced in both houses.
The resolution will simply authorize any
one claiming title to tho immense property
in dispute to commence in that court suit
against the United States. It would be a
singular retult of this long struggle
between McGarrahan and Tho New Idria
Mining Co., if it should appear finally that
tho government, and not cither of those
parties, really owns the land.
THE HORRORS OF THE GALLOWS
Patrick Ford, tho man who edits and
publishes the Irish World 19 much given to
extravagant expressions, but we can not
say that in picturing the inhumanity and
barbarity of our mode of effecting capital
punishment, he employs a single word
that is not warranted by the nature of the
horror with which he deals. The following
extract is from the last issue of the World :
Amonir tho multitude ot evil ami wiel,l
examples inflicted on us by the British
oligarchy, hanging men up to die is cer
tainly the most cruel and wicked. Men tell
you everywhere that torture is abolished.
It is not almlishcd. Even where Kno-luml
sends round her expert Calcraft to do the
Killing, tno rope sometimes sups wrong and
tho victim (lies of stranculation. Wn hiwn
followed her example in this modern cruci-
uxion, ami, os in most otlicr tilings, we
have improved unon it bv mnWinrr it wvim
Here we remit the brutal work to ignorant
Plundering ftiionrts and Deputy Hlicrtflg to
hang tip .thc unfortunates whom our English
system of disinheritance has made, to dio
almost invariably, by strangulation. What
thoss unfortunates feel as an eternity of
torture before they are permitted to die ! The
shallow unfeeling criminal men who follow
pajwr and ink for a daily trade don't realine
this: don't Want to realize either it or uiiv.
thing else but the criminal gaius they can
make out of their most criminal business
of misleading public thought. Ten to fif
teen or twenty minutes is tho averago that
our unfortunates must hang struggling for
a tilm of air. Every minute counting one,
two, three, up to sixty, ami then
begin again at one, two, thee and count up
t MXty, again and ugain, till tho gasping,
dying wreteh sees ten or twenty returns of
the iniserable count, every one return of
which seems to the dying man us long as
nn eternity. Hut it is no business of our
daily "instructors" to look into this brutali
ty. Or, indcod, into anyMiing but tho
profits to be made out of their venture.
That profit Is sure to be proportioned to the
adroitness with which they can flatter pub
lic prejudice, however brutal mid ignorant
it iiiav be. That, and eli.in.olnn tlm vil.
lnnies of the Shylocks; the traitors who are
robbing the nation of hundreds indeed
thousands of millions, and who can afford
to throw a Isme tn the literary dogs who
howl in their train.
MISSISSIPPI RIVER IMPROVEMENT.
Kt. Louis Itepitbllcnn,
A local eontemporv rushes too hastily in
to disp'inigtng criticism of the Republi
can's frequent declaration that all that
should be asked at present In the matter of
improving the Mississippi river is tlm au
thority and appropriation for what is
known ns the Mississippi river Improve
ment commission. This (TiMclstn Is bused
upon the fact that n thorough and com
plete surrey of the river was mado by tho
eiuriiieei' corps of the army some years ago,
s t that no morn pirpnratoiy work of that
kind is needed, Imt It is only necessary to

make all use possible of the surveys hereto
fore made, and ony or,i(.r nuW N,irv,,y
where absolutely needed. It is not intended
to duplicate work already sufficiently well
done, or to stop any now in progress, but
taking these into consideration, to tell con

and the overflowed lands reclaimed, and
what a connected, harmonious aud syste

Grant did not obtain the nomination fur
his third presidential candidacy, but hi
friends decided that he should stand again
in the fall of 1880. To get him out of the;
way, ho was sent to travel abroad. Herei
an ex president is a mere nobody a lucifcr
match burned out. It was managed bv
Amcrciut ambassadors and consuls ahniaih
that Grant should bo received and trcuftHk
as if he were "His Royal Highness the -Prince,'.'
on his travels. Now he alwnt
starting in an United States ship-of-war, on
a tour that will cover many months of the
present year, and the flunkeyism of 'our
Naval Secretary is believed to have, pro
vided that Ulysses and his followers
shall travel over the Pacific Ocean
to India and o'Jier remote part
wholly at tho public expense. His igar
bill will bo a heavy item. Accompanying
"the brave Ulysses" all through Great Brit
ain was one Adam Badeau, an United
States consul, who is said to have compose!?
the speeches which Grant is reported as
having made. Outside of England, omt
John Russell Young, reporter on the New
York Herald, accompanied him, closing
with Ireland, and, having manufactured
Grant's elwitienco, regularly sent it, over
the Atlantic Cable, to bo published in that
veracious journal. As Young accompanies
