The Pullman car company is declaring
monthly dividends of 2 percent. If the
company would reduce its price t"0 one
half tlic amount now cliarjjcil, the price
woulil still amount to a robbery of the
traveling public. But the- cmnpauy would
.show by the act that it ilon't care to get all
the people's money at once.
Ix less than two years after the adoption
of a constitutional amendment conferring
full rights of citizenship upon women, laws
prohibiting the 'manufacture of intoxicating
liquors will be enacted in all the Nw
England, Middle and Northwestern States;
and in less than four years lrom that time
like laws will lie common to every State in
tlie Union. When this time comes Mexico
will do a 'booming" busing across the
The malice of the St. Louis Globe-Demo-crat
is of the kind that knows no mercy.
Senator Armstrong, of Missouri, has tried
hard to win a good name, and now stands
so well with his party and his people, that
the Deniocaats of Missouri, think well of
him as a candidate for Govei nor in 1880.
That, at such juncture, the Globe-Democrat
should commence praising him, is sim
ply heartless. The Globe-Democrat might
have spared the old man the crushing
weight of its good oju'iiion until after the
next Democratic Stare convention, at all
events. To damn him with its encomiums
now, is, as we have stated, simply a piece
The prohibitionists arc 'making un in
dustrious effort to induce the Ohio Legis
lature to enact a constitutional amendment
prohibiting the manufacture of intoxicating
liquors, malt as well as spiritous. They ex
pect to lay before the Legislature a petition
containing the names of 0(0,0()0 persons.
It will be an easy matter to enact the
amendment, and the Legislature will prob
ably do so; but to secure itsadoption by the
people, will prove altogether a different
tiling. Such a proposition would be de
feated, on a popular vote, by a majority of
a hundred thousand. We don't wish to
discourage the temperance laborers; but in
Illinois a similar result would follow.
Great civic revolutions are effected at the
end of long continued, earnest and unceas
ing effort. In neither Ohio or Illinois or
any other 'Western State litis public senti
ment ripened to such a harvest. Tem
perance men and women must wait and
Tue irrepressible Nasby declares that he
never wants to see another Democrat elect
ed from a State like Wisconsin, because
they are not half baked. But Nasby is not
progressive. IIib party is leaving him in
the lurch, and soon there will be no refuge
'or him unless he finds it in the folds of the
party of Greenback ofilce-scekers. The
great mass of Democrats north of Mason
und Dixon's line are, to-day, in sympathy
with Congressman Bragg, of Wisconsin.
They would have the so-called rebel claims
three-fourths of which are held by men
whoso proof of loyalty rests in the fact that
since tho war they have voted the Republi
can ticket the Democrats of the North
would have all thesis claims cut off,,
by a constitutional ainendin.'iit,
and placed beyond the possible reach of
either party. Not one dollar of them
should be paid, and. it six months hence,
any man favors their payment, that man
will not be recognized as a Democrat. Our
National platform' must embody a p'unk
growing a fixed aud unalterable determina
tion to light all such claimes to tho bitter
end, and tho man who can't stand on that
plank, can get off the platform. All such
men will prove a drag to tile Democratic
party, and not a help.
FitANCK, until recently a powder maga
zine that exploded at the slightest touch of
heat, and threw the people into tho wildest
disorder, is now astonishing the world by
the case and facility with which she effects
peaceful revolutions. Every lover of lib
erty begins to view the French republic
with feelings of pride and satisfaction, as
her people are furnishing a glorious demon
stration of man's capacity for self govern
ment. Day by day the government becomes
more stable, and is constantly growing in
the nff'Ctionsof the people. Prosperous in
all her industrial pursuits, maintaining
quiet and good order everywhere, tho Re
public of France must furnish an irresista:
ble impetus to the Democratic sentiment
that long since gained a foothold in the
German empire, and among the more en
lightened subjects of the other limited
monarchies of the continent of Europe. Tho
days of the crown-heads! of Europe are
few, and henceforward, will be full of
Jons A. Wall, of the Pinckncyvillo
Signal, declares that there is a "ring" in
Pinckncyville, led by W. D. Murphy, Esq,,
that is determined to ruiu his business aud
drive him out of Perry county. Very re
cently the "ring" has been enlarged by the
addition of the man who owns the house in
which the Signal is printed. This man
notifies Mr. Wall that because of the non
payment of the rent, he desires him to va
cate the premises. In reply Wall avers
that his laudlord has owed him more than
the auvount of the rent for a period of two
years. And quite recently, also, the "ring"
has been further enlarged by the addition
of the Baptist church ot l'inckueyville. The
members of this church Hectare, by reso
lution, that the Signal's personal attacks
upon Rev. Mr. Willoughby are wanton, ma
licious and unwarranted. In reply to this
Mr. Wall declares that he has made no as
saults upon Mr. Willoughby that have not
been fully justified. He has, he says, called
Willoughby an "old hypocrite," a "pious
fraud." "a liar." etc., and Willoughby is a
fraud, a hypocrite, and a liar. And, quite
recently, too, the "ring" was further en
larged by tho addition of the town council,
which passed a series of resolutions that
Wall was not permitted to see, but which
were condemnatory of tite nunn"r in which
the Signal lias been conducted. Kept in
the dark as to the exact character of these
resolutions, Wall's resistance was not quite
as effective as it otherwise might have been.
But he does the best ho can aud fights
Willoughby, who edits tho opposition pa
per; fights the Baptist church, fights
his landlord, lights the town board,
all these he tights through the columns of
the Signal; and W. I). Murphy, whom he
stigmatizes as the "boss" of the "ring," lie
lights with tightly clenched fists as well as
through his newspaper. Mr. Wall claims
that he has been badly treated, and cer
tainly talks like a man who is honestly in
dignant and resentful. But without going
outside of the columns of his own paper,
the public will conclude that he has done
wrong as well as suffered wrong.
FELL OF HIS OWN WEIGHT.
When Boss Hising had tljiished his testi
mony in the Blodg 'tt impeachment inquiry,
the impression prevailed that Blodgett was
a ruined man. People foolishly thought
that llesing, repentant for the sins that laid
with mountain weight on his soul, had told
the truth, although he, himself, was the
beneficiary of the villainy he charged to
the account of Blodgrtt. But in due time
Blodgett's witnesses came upon the stand.
Piece by piece llesi tig's testimony was des
troyed, until, by the testimony of good
men of Chicago he was proven to be a
perjured man, and a most vindictive one
besides. We referred yesterday to the val
ue he placed upon the stock he held in the
Staats Zeitung. That, he might avoid the
payment of his just share of taxes he swore
that his stock was worth only fifteen cents
on the dollar. When he wanted to ruin
the character ofJudge Blodgett lie. swore
that the name stock was worth one hun
dred cents on the dollar. Being
confronted with his affidavit, in which
'he price of the stock was
lixeilat fifteen cents, lie declared lhat'he had
sworn to the alll laut in ignorance of its
contentsthat, hud lie been advised that
such a low rs'.imato had been placed on ihe
stock, lie would not havo taken the oath.
This was n most damaging explanation;
but what will the reader think of the man
when we remark that it was proven that
even the explanation was false. The law
yer who drew up the ntlldavit has sworn
pointedly and unequivocally that llesing
did know the mcnniiig a( juirporl of the
affidavit, and had actually fixed the value of
the stock himself. In nnother part of his tes
timony Mr. llesing doclaro.1 that, while y.
ingin jail liccauscof crooked vhisl;y opem
tlotis, he was importuned by some one to
get Judge Blodgett's signature to his par-
doit petition; but ho had replied that "be
fore l:o would ask a fuvor of a corrupt
Judge ho would He iu jail and rot." This
npurt of virtuous indigaation
"brought down tho houso," and
many were tho expressions of sympathy
that were heard nil over .tho room for tho
virtuous and much abused llesing. But
even this testimony, that had no direct hear
ing on tho case, was demolished, and shown
up as a volunteered falsehood, tor it was
proved by creditable witnesses that llesing
did what ho declared ho would never do;
Ho sent men to Judgo Blodgett to beg of
him the favor of his signature to his par
don petition, and ho did this, too, before
"rottiug in jail" as a preliminary proceed
It may lie that the Chicago papers, from
which we gather the facts wo have given,
do not like llesing, and aim to bring him
into disrepute; but, unless a majority of the
witnesses brought before the committee
testified falsely llesing has done more to
tear down his own character than all the
papers of Chicago could do, if religiously
devoted to that end, in a whole twelve

The quarrel ovej tho New York custom
house is passed. Senator C'onkling is beaten
and the administration, is triumphant.
Probably the new officials will not perforin
their duty much more or less efficiently
than the old ones. The contest was for
control ot the spoils simply. To Denio
crtic voters the administration is indebted
for its victory. Probably Senators (Denio
ccratic) who assisted Mr. Hayes and Secre
tary Sherman did what was best is a party

There is much talk of necessity of an extra
session. There will certainly be prolonged
discussion over the sundry civil apprecia
tion bill and the legislative, executivi and
judicial, as both parties will seek to accom
plish general legislation by means of arund
ments to the bills, and an extra session may
be a necessity.
Various propositions have been made for
raising money to pay the fifty or sixty mil
lions needed to carry out the "arrears" por
tion of the late pension bill. It is under
stood that from five to ten millions will be
appropriated during this session for the pur
pose, and the balance as it becomes neces
sary. One result of the bill is a
greatly increased number of applications
for pension under the general 'aw.
Many arc applying now that they will re
ceive pension, if at all, back to-date ot dis
charge, who had not thought it worth vhile
to do so before. The first payment of any
pensioner, applying at this time, amid
hardly be less than three hundred dolars.
