it because Jake Rutin's land happened to

ously low; the labor of the convicts can be

rail aud water; and, in fact, the situation is

bill, that it would require some restraint to
turn the torrent to prevent the transfer of
the joint prison to Chester. The question
will hereafter be, which location shall be

pany, know that company can't afford to

than 2.00 or $2.50 per night, because the
company said so itself. Hotels can be
built at a cost of $200,000, maintain an
army of servants, and furnish a bed for
fifty cents. But a sleeping car that costs
$15,000, aud is managed by a single man,
can not afTord such accommodations for less
(than $2. The mere fact that the ear is
kept in motion does not account for the
- difference. Hotels are run at a great cx
'pemio as well as sleeping oars, and there is
no reaiton in justice or common sense why
the charges of the one should be four or
five times greater than the other. The
: sub-committee's report is simply the report
tof tLe Bleeping car company; and all the
wigenuity of the shrewd men at the head of
thnt company, alter charging extrava
gantly for the wear and t"ar of their prop
erty, for probable losses, for interest on
money invested (which is wcarand tear) m;d
nil other expenses, can't cipher their profit
down below cyht per centum per annum.
The preparation of the exhibit is left to the
car company itself, and still a profit of
eight per cent is shiiwii ! If the members
of that company tiro not absolute prodigies
in the measure of personal integrity,
their profits reach one hundred per cent;
and the man, or set of men who believe
that the earnings of the company do not
exceed S per cent , because the parties in
interest say they don't, is entirely too cred
ulous to do the people good service in the
General Assembly. The very confessions
of the company itself slrow that the profits
from their sleeping cars must be enormous;
and we lm ve sullieient confidence in the
good sense and penetration of the majority
of the General Assembly, to' believe that
they look at the matter in the same light,
and will, regardless of the report of their
sub-,'innin'ents," step in betw een the sleep
ing car cormorants and the people, and pro
tect the people from further extortion.
The Southern Illinois penitentiary will
not lie taken from Chester. The matter is
fixed now. beyond peiadventuie. The sixty
legislators who visited the place, lately,
satisfied themselves, by personal inspection,
that the location i the best one that could
have been made for a S. I. penitentiary,
and that the objections that are being
urged by the Juliet interest have no foun
dation in either reason or truth. A Spring
field correspondent finds "that the mem
bers of til.; party now appear to be will
ing to vote $."00,000 this year to support
the Governor's pet scheme, and open the
door for the appropriation of millions more
of the people's money hereafter. The pres
ent committee from the II-msc are
just 'tis unanimous in favor of
the Southern penitentiary scheme as the
committee from the Senate were -against
it. Theie Is a striking dissimilarity of j are tor Grant in 1). I have good author

a i;rave trust that has been charged to the
party. If it is well and patriotically ob
served, the people will not wiihold their
endorsement in 1880. If it is abused or

THE GRAND JURY ABOMINATION.
Several weeks before the meeting of the
General Assembly, we urged the abolition
of the Grand Jury system denouncing it
for what is, an expensive needless and most
obnoxious nuisance. A number of our co
temporaries heartily seconded our sugges
tion, and Hon. J. H. Carter, of Johnson,
holding that the age has outgrown the need
of the antiquated abomination, introduced
a bill for a law to wipe it out from its place
among the recognized institutions of t he
govern:!. cut. Discussing the matter the ed
itor of'Miawneetown News expresses him
self as follows,
"The bill introduced sometime ago by
Hon. Jas. H. Carter in the legislature re
garding the abolishment of the expensive,
unjust and obnoxious system of Grand
Juries and providing for the due prosecu
tion of criminals upon information, has been
favorably reported upon by the committee
to whom it was referred.
The editors of the Metropolis Times
speaks of James H. Carter as Oeing pre
sumptuous and ignorant because he has
introduced a bill to abolish the Grand
Jury. Why, my ilear sirs, you should not
be too hasty in coming to your conclusions.
Mr. Carter is bucked by the tax-payers
of this State on this matter. Other Slates
have abolished this old fogy system,
and find it to be the piogressivestep in the
right direction. Mr. Carter has writteu to
the secretaries of those states that have
abolished it, and received letters till cumu
lative in favor of the plan of prosecuting
criminals upon information. The idea that
because it is the oldest institution of our law
and that it was charaetmed by such men
as William Rlackstono and Kent, that it
ought not to be abolished; is perfectly re
diculous. This, gentlemen, Is no argutneut

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
Washington. February 10th, 1879
Things are rapidly coming to a head in
legislation, although there is still so much
to do ahead that it is difficult to see how it
is all to be well done. The house is still
wrangling over the legislative and execu
tive appropriation bill. J-ast night iu'coin
mittcc of the whole, after a sharp and
angry debate, the committees nincndinent
for abolishing the office of Surveyors Gen
eral of public lands was defeated, many of
the western Democrats joining the Repub
licans in denouncing it as nn effort at
economy which would be very expensive to
the people. It is diliicult to see how the
consideration of this bill can be closed be
fore the end of this week, since the Demo
carts have given notice of amendments re
pealing the.clectmn surveyors law and that
relating to juries in United States courts,
both of which will provoke a good deal of
of discussion. Some of the Democrats will
probably oppose them on the ground that
they will be antagonized by the. senate and
endanger the success of other measures.
The seuai" committee to whom the sub
ject was referred has reported in faver of
Capt. Fad's reiuest for relief on his work
upon the Mississippi jetties. This is vi:
crally believed to be a matter of justice,
suice the work has been completed much
beyond, the expectations of everybody, and
there is a large amount of money equitably
due the Captain for work that receives the
approval of the 'government examiners.
Roth houses will probably pass this
measure since it will serve to promote the
work in future, as well as relieve an honest
and -pains taking public servant.

eral Logan the grandest reception of the
