M.B. Harrell, Ktlitor.
W.'F. Storey has forbidden his editors
and reporters to speak of the oilier Chicago
papers by name. And now, says a saucy
cotemporary, ''the other papers" will die.
Sexatoh Bayard stood stoutly by the
president in his contest with Conkling and
felt a throb of anticipatory pleasure, no
doubt, m Conkling's discomfiture. Toh
Senate has now declared that the president
has the undoubted right to make arbitrary
removals from office, and that the Senate
can only inquire into the character of tl c
new appointors. I5:iyard, anticipating that
lie may, as the standard bearer of the Dem
ocracy, succeed Hayes, reads this record
The editor of the Sparta Plaiudealer is a
philosopher. lie says that hard times must
be overcome by farmers by hard work,
hard study in leisure hours, hard thinking
and calculating, hard economy. There is
no use whining, orying, complaining. It
will bring no relief. "Heaven helps those
who help themselves." If one is in the
mire, ho must get on to hard, solid ground
as soon as possible. Spend less than you
earn. If in debt so much as to give great
trouble, make some arrangement with your
creditors that will be satisfactory all around
or throw up the sponge ami begin again.
If you sec no chance to get out of debt,
this is the best way. A load ot debt is the
heaviest load a man can carry. It kills
mind and body. It makes a brave man a
coward. It stifles all aspirations, all hope.
Get out of its clutches, and forever keep
out, if possible.
Sitting Bull hates the people of the
United States quite as heartily as Oglesby
hates Logan. He still lives in Canada,
about twenty miles from the United States
boundary and swears that he will never cross
the line again, unless he can come banked
by arms and men enough to wreak' revenge
for the accumulated wrongs his people are
Buffering. A scout who recently reached
Deadwood reports that his lew followers
are on this side of the line, quite starved,
and willing to capitulate on any terms for
the sake of getting food. The red devils
who, during seasons ot plenty, burned
stacks and cribs of grain and slaughtered
cattle through puns ficndislmesr,, are now
willing to sell what, from an Indian stand
point, is their manhood, for enough of com
and beei to keep their souls from skipping
out of their gaunt bodies. There is noth
ing like hunger to tame the savage. With
food at hand to be used or wasted, they urc
incarnate devils. Destitute of food und
hungry, they are docile as lambs, und as
tractable as so many oxen.
If Boss llesing, of Chicago lia. had any
'reputation to lose he would have left the
witness stand in the Judge Blodgctt caw, as
destitutes of charucter as Zucli ('han
dler 'is of political integrity. This
Is a very strong parallel, bul the facts
warrant it. It appears from his testimony
in that case, that when llesing, want
ed to escape the payment of honest taxes
ho unhesitatingly swore thut.StnaJgZeitung
Stock which heownod, was worth only fifteen
cent on the dollar. When lie wanted to
blast tho character of Judg.j Blodgetthe
aworo that tho same stock was worth dollar
for dollar. When, about the same time, he
wanted to buy Staats Zeitung stock , he said
' it was worth only twenty cents ou tho dol
lar, and that sum constituted Ids offer to
UiO Union National Bank, of Chicago,
Mercurial stock, is that of Zeitung, ter
,, talnly. It rose and fell, in Hcsiug's tlr-
mometcr, according as he swore hot or cold
about it. A bad mau is that Ilesing, and
unfortunately, he has tho power for
great mischief. At one time ho controlled
Chicago as absolutely as tho Bey controls
Morocco. His sun has set, however, ami
the days of his triumphs in political life are
There are forty thousand names on tho
pension list, and in no prballe event will
the list be increased to fifty thousand. Tho
highest estimate yet made of the amount
that will go to each pensioner under the
arrearage pension law, is six hun
dred dollars. Hence the amount of money
that will be taken from the treasury to pay
the arearages will not reach $30,000,000 nor
the half of it. Less than thirty millions
will pay every dollar that can be justly or
reasonably claimed. Nearly or qui :e six
times that sum is lying idle in the treasury
vaults, and, if wc except the thirty or forty
millions that Sherman's First National
Bank, of New York, is using, not a dollar
of it is cmployud to the advantage of any
body. But pay out $35,000,0(10 or f30-
000,000, as is proposed under the arrearage
pension law, aud see the result. The
money will go into the hands of poor men
and poor families; nine-tenths of it will be
put in circulation in less than a twelve
month will go into the hands of our mer
chants and professional men, and give to
our business and to all our productive in
dustries, an impulse that has not been felt
for many years. Such a distribution of the
hoarded money of the government is one
of the needs of the times; and it made the
effect will immediately be seen in a revival
of trade and business all over the country.
As most people sCoui to ''be at sea" as to
what is and what is nat exempt from ex
ecution and sale for debt, someljody will
probably thank us for the following infor
mation ou that head :
Under the laws of Illinois, every house
holder having a family, is entitled to an
estate or homestead of the value of f 1.000
in the farm or lot or buildings thereon,
owned and possessed by him or her, and oc
cupied as a residence. Such homestead and
all right and title therein, is exempted from
attachment, judgment, levy or execution
sale for payment of debts, etc. Except
that no property is exempt for the noo-payment
of taxes or assessments, or for a debt
incurred for the purchase or improvement
of the same. The following personal prop
erty is also exempt; 1st, the necessary wear
ing apparel, bibles, school liooks and fam
ily pictures of every person, and 2nd, $100
worth of other property to be select
ed by the owner, and, in addition, when
the owner is the head of the family and re
sides with the same, $300 dollars worth of
property to be scloeted by him, provided
such selection is not maae from any money,
salary or wages due from any person what
ever. But no personal property is exempt
ed from attachment or execution when the
debt is found to be for wages of a laborer
or a servant, and is so expressed upon the
records of the court rendering such judg
ment, and is indorsed upon the execution
The more intelligent Indians resident of
the Indian Territory have joined in a re
monstrance against the bill pending in the
United States Senate, providing for the ap
pointment of a delegate to represent that
Territory in the House. They avow them
selves contented with their present form of
government, find it productive of good
order, nud their people, the remonstrants
say. look with dread to the results of new
forms and new customs. But there is
another side to this question. By conced
ing a delegate to these well behaved and
contented Indians, we introduce among
them tl,ie blessings of American polities.
AVc turnish their native politicians a chance
do go to Washington once or twice a year,
and, as the New York Her.ild- fays, send
back refreshing showers of "pub. docs."
und Congressional Globes to tertilie the
iiboriginal mind, furnish curl papers for all
the st.iaight-haired dames in the territory
and kite tails for nil the boys. Ho could
learn and afterwards impart his knowledge
of every new and pleasing beverage the
basis of which is alcohol. In the use of
profane language, which is of such inesti
mable comfort to the native tongue, he
could become an cleetie, giving of his store
unto those whose representative he would be.
Numberless other blessings would be within
his gift, and some day he might chance to
die and have his remainsescortedhomeby a
committee of tho House in which case the
hulf-eivilizcd residents of tho Territory
would enjoy the inestimably rellning and
ennobling spectacle of grief us rendered
officially. And yet the Indians want no
dtlegatesl Out on such wild stupidity 1
Let these people be managed with a strong
and resolute hand. Make Grant president
and send the troops among them. If they
are still headstrong and obstreperous, give
'em a taste of the mercy accorded to the
Cheyenne. They must bo brought under
the refining influences of American civili
zation.' That's tho long und short of it.

Washisotox, February 4, 1870.
In a year or two every Democrat in tho
country will be wondering why tho Dem
ocratic house of the forty-fifth congress did
not insist on a large reduction in govern
ment expenses. Tho army might have
been properly cut down, and tho navy.
Our ''foreign relations" cost doublo what
they should. In all tho departments ure
countless superfluous employes, besides
thousands of overpaid ones, aud separate
bureaus which were never necessary or
were necessary only during and just after
the war. Every Democratic congressman
of two years experience knows this. Yet,
though our revenues are falling off, and
the inevitable result must be tho imposi
tion of new burdens upon the people at the
first session of the Democratic forty-sixth,
congress, the Democratic house has so
far hardly intimated a desire for retrench
ment. Democrats in congres to-day are
digging their own graves and the graves of
future Democrats. There is time even in the
three weeks remaining of the session. M ny
appropriation bills are still under control of
tho house. Marty schemes involving the
useless payment of money ore yet to be
acted on. The house canuot do all it should
have done nt this session, but it can do
Senator Conkling was yesterday badly
beaten in his fight with the administration
on the New York custom house appoint
ments. The result is largely due to a speech
of Senator Bayard, favoring confirmation.
This admirable senator's influence is, as it
should be, very great, and has not beeu
more conspicuously effectual in any case
than this. The quarrel was a disgraceful
one. Manifestly the efforts of the admis
tratiou were to change the direction of po
litical support in the custom house, and not
to do away with it. Just as certainly Sen
ator Conkling fought for continued control
of that influence, and for. personal friends.
There never was an atom of principle in
volved. There has been, in the last week, a deal of
nonsense uttered in the house on the object
of southern or way claims. There are thou
sands of claims now filed here, which, were
filed and have been completed at great ex
pense under the provision of a law extend
ing what is called the "southern claim com
mission" until It is now proposed
to repeal the law extending the time of that
commission. The question whether or not
that ought to be done is eutirely seperate
from the question as to the original policy
of paying the claims. The claimants
meet with certain loes. The government
promised to pay those losses jf proper proof
was made before 1830. The proof has been
and is being made. How the government
can honorably escape payment in such case
it cauuot see. It may properly, perhaps,
refuse to consider claims filed alter 180.
To-day, or as soon as he can get the Moor
for the purpose, Senator Morrill will call up
the senate bill providing for the taking of
the next census. It is to be hoped that the
two houses will agree upon some measure
for the purpose, and that, as far as possible,
the numerous persons who will necessarily
be employed will be selected without regard
To-day the school superintendents meet
here, from all parts of the country, to dis
cuss school uffairs. The meeting ought to
be and I think will be productive of great
good. The attendance, however, is not
what it should he.
