Si'RiNGKiEi.p, 111., February 3. The
senate committee ou canals and rivers has
agreed ti)on a special meeting at an early
day to take into consideration an act in re
lation to asserting the title of the Illinois
aud Michigan canal to the property in
Chicago known as the "Lake Front." This
is an important subject, as the property in
question is very valuable.
The house committe on railroads has had
several meetings, at which . the subject of
regulating the charges of the Pullman
Palace Car company was discussed. The
sense of the committee is that this company
is subject to legislative control the same as
other corporations of this state, but the
committee has akcd the attorne)--general
for a legal opinion on the subject and are
After all the parade, the senate's execu
tive session this morning was a very tame
affair. There was no debate. A motion
was made to refer the whole subject of con
firmiug the southern penitentiary commis
sioners to tho committee on penal institu
tions, which came very near being success
ful, tlie vote stamUng 23 to 23. The ques
tion of continuation was then taken up and
all the Democrats, and all the Republicans
but fifteen voted for the confirmation. Then
a large batch of executive nominations were
considered, all of which have appeared in
the Republican as they have been made
during tfie past two years, and all confirm
ed by one vote, and this is all there was of
THE CATTIE QUESTION
Mr. Hopkins introduced a preamble and
resolution in the house this morning, which
recites that Great Britain has closed her
ports against the receipt of beef cattle
from this country on the alleged account of
disease, which is seriously iifl'ectiiig the
prices of beef in this market, directing
the secretary of the state board of agricul
ture to gather all information as to the pivv
alcney of cattle disease in this state, and
report the same to the house. Adopted.
THE SOUTHERN PENITENTIARY.
The Republicans in tho present general
assembly fnid they have a big elephant on
their hands in the shape of a Southern pen
itentiary, and are now endeavoring to evade
the responsibility. The Democrats in the
legislature can not afford to soil their lin
gers with this matter, to cover np the mis
takes of Gov. Cullom or the Republican par
ty. Correct policy dictates that the Demo
cratic members must keep hands off and
allow tho Republican majority to work out
its own salvation. It is true, tho money ap
propriated to establish a Southern peniten
tiary was voted by both Democrats and Ro
puhlieans alike which is all well enough
but it was not voted to be wasted by the mis
takesof a Republican state administration

A QUESTION OF SALARY.
Tho railroad und warehouse commission
cm do not relish thu proposed reduction of
their salarien now before tho general assem
bly. It is now asserted that before they
will submit, a cane wtll bo made and taken
to tin lupvemo court of tho 'tare, to dotcr-
mine the question whether the legislature
can reduce the salary of an officer while lie
in holding office. They claim that the rea
son more has not been done by the board,
i, because the supreme court of Illinois
will not decide u case now three years be
before it, testing the constitutionality of the
law by whih the board was created.

THE REPUBLICAN CAUCUS.
Nothing was done at the caucus ot Re
publican senators to-day except to arrange
for the order of business for the remainder
ot the session.
TnE CORBIN CONTEST.
There is likely to be a bitter contest in
the senate over tho attempt to seat Corbin,
as the Democrats signify their intention to
exhaust all expedients to prevent it, and
justify their action upon the ground that the
senate is not called upon to vote upon a
piestion that has been formally decided,
and that in any event Corbin is not entitled
to a Beat as there was not a quorum of the
legislature voting at the time of his elec
There is a protracted debate going on in
the senate over the Edmunds resolution
with the probability of its passing.
TnE PACIFIC RAILROAD HILL.
From present indications there is little
likelihood, if any, of the Pacitic railroad
bill passing during the present session. It
is evident now that the directors of he
Northern Pacific do not desire to put their
measures through the present congress, as
they are engaged in buying up the stock at
a depreciated figure,
ILLINOIS CHARITABLE EXPENDI
TURES. The people of Illinois are begining to be
a little curious about the cost of their pub
lic institutions. It is no wonder. They
have been animated by tho idea that one of
the highest evidences of enlightenment ami
growing refinement is a generous support of
the classes who are objects of charity
und under the stimulus of this notion, they
have overdone the business, in all, in the
state which receive their support from
the public treasury including the
prisons, the asylums, the hospitals,
the correctional and educational establish
ments: and in Gov. Gullom's late
message, it was stated that expense of the
charitable and correctional institutions alone
for the last two years, had been $1,846,889
which is at the rate of over $000,000 a
year. The expenses of the executive, legis
lative and judicial departments of the state
government for the same time were $1,010
342 or about $500,000 a year. It costs
nearly twice as much, therefore, to take
care of the recipients of public charity anil
discipline in Illinois as to maintain tho
three great departments of government.
The nine charitable instituaions of the State
ask for an appropriation ot $1,400.00 for
the two current years. St. Louis Repub
lican. NEWS FROM THE FEDERAL CAPITAL
Washington, February 3, 1879.
Both the administration and Senator
Conkling have had all the delay they wished
for before the senate should vote on tho New
York custom house nominations, and to
day will decide the question in the senate.
Such extraordinary pressure has been
brought to bear on Democratic and Repuub
licau senators by both Messrs. Hayes and
Sherman on one side and Mr. Conkling on
the other, that it is impossible to say what
the result may be. It has not, however,
escaped attention that for several days there
have been new indication of confidence on
the part of Secretary Sherman. It is not
believed either side will have more than one
or two votes to spare.
Tho heirs of Gen. R. E. Leo say now that
they do not wish actual possession of the
Arlington estate, to which the Federal
court at Alexandria lately declared them
entitled, but will be content with the money
value of the property.
On Saturday in the senate tho debate on
Edmunds' resolution was continued, Sena-
ator Morgan concluding his speech, aud
Senator Edmunds briefly explained bis
position. Many other senators will speak
on tho subject. In tho houso tho day was
spent in speeches on the general subject of
southern war claims. In the past week tho
two houses have made no progress iu
legislation, beyond increasing prior to final
passage, the several appropriation bills re
ported by the houso committee.
We ought to bo able to learn from the
conlession of onr enemies, but but we do
uot seem able to do so. Hero is Senator
Blaine, certainly good Republican author
ity, who saya we wnsto millions of money
on the navy. So we do on tho iirmy.
So ou thousands of officers in
the departments here, who may have
been necessary from 18U to 1800, but who
have since then been simply in the way of
public business. So of countless officers,
whose mission is unconstitutional and un
democratic, aud who hava been scattered
through tho South for ycam to intorfero
with stato and local cleetiorjs. There ia not
au lutellijrent Democrat In congress who
docs not belies all thesi abuses exist, or
who could not make himself, by investiga
tion, certain ot it. Yet during this session
no thorough reduction has been proposed,
and such afl the Democratic memler of
the houso appropriation committee havo
been able to agree on havo been promptly
killed in a Democratic bouse. It the
people of the county could well
stand the present rate of taxation,
and those rates would meet the increasing
liabilities of the government there might
be the excuse for this course. But every
body now knows that is imposKible, and
that new sources of income must bo sought
out, ami, unfortunately for the Democratic
party, it, and not the radical party, must
through control of tbe 40th congress, impose
the the new burdens. For the remaining
threo weeka of the session tho Democracy
should act with this important fact before
them. ' , ,

and various other entertainments. Hard

THE INDIAN BUREAU.
A SHOT AT Tilt MILITARY.
A report embodying the views of Sena
tors Saunders and Ogieshy and Representa
tives Stewart and Van Voorhecs, four of
the eight members of the joint Committed
on tbe Indian transfer question, has been
completed and has been presented to the
Sentitu. It is shown that various evils ami
abuses grew up under the administration of
Indian affairs by military officers, and not
withstanding reformation legislation. MacU
3, 1874, they continued to grow ' up to tho
last hour in which the war department had
control of the Indian population, and m
little had been done toward
Indian civilization under the
1 J Al . A
war iiepartment management; uiui
public opinion had acquiesced in the as
sumption that Indians were not suscepti
ble of civilization. It is estimated that if
all the lighting Indians of the country
could bo got together, they would not
muster more than 15,000, and the idea of
their ever concentrating for warlike puv
poses is simply preposterous, because, k is .
impossible. Indian wars on a largo scale
are over, and we may reasonably hopo that
that portion of our national history is in
tho past. In reference to the sentiment of
Indians on tho subject, the Secretary of the
Interior made to the committee a state
