A COMl'L.MMNO COXS'l l'ITEM Y.
Charges have-been preferred against Mi.
Artley, the Socialist senator from Chie.igi ,
by a member of and to one of the Sucialbt
organizations of that city of which Senator
Artley is a member. The charges set forth
are that Mr. Artley is working in the into
csts of the Republican partf iu the legisla
ture, that he refuses to associate with his
fellow-Socialist members of the house, and
since his elevation to the exalted position of
state senator, fs fast becoming an aristocrat
and a tool of the capitalists.
Last week, us reported in the Republican ,
Mr. Joslyn introduced into the senate a
hill providing that any member of the gen
eral assembly who accepted it free pas
from any railroad or other corpmaliiiii
should forfeit his seat and pay a line of
$500, and that the railroad oHcring such
pass should ulso be lined $500. The bill
was regularly referred to the committee on
agriculture and drainage, which amended it
hy placing nil state officers, county officers,
and in fact all public officials, on the
saint, footing with members of the legisla
ture us to receiving free pass 's, mid recoin
mend Its passage, and so report to the sen
ate. Mr. Joslyn now maintains that be
merely introduced the bill n ajoltu which
view of tho matter the committee does not
take, uml he insists that it is discourteous
not to allow the mover ofu bill to have tion

JOTTINGS FROM WASHINGTON. .
Washington, February 21, 1S79.
Tiff senv.e has pis-ed the Brazilian
subsidy or rather placed upon the post
office appropriation bill an ammendinent
providing that two contracts shall bo made
tor mail service by steamship from New
York and New Orleans to Brazil, at a cost
not to exceed $150,000 each per year. The
opposition to this measure has been bitter
and persistent ou the pnrt of sonic interests,
and especially from the Delaware and
Maryland senators who sounded the char
ges on "subsidy" and John Roach an the
scarecrow of the measure until they them
selves are weary of them. It was evident
from the first that a good majority of both
parties favored the proposition. Senators
Maine, Hill, Conk ling, Maxey, and other
conspicuous leaders, North and South,
united iu the effort and stood shoulder to
shoulder, in resisting all assaults upon
what they agreed is an experiment looking
to improvements in our navigation inter
ests ami the extension of our foreign " trade.
Messrs. I.Iaxey and Hill distinctly stated
that they retused to be frightened from this
effort to help their constituents to develope
their interests by the hard names hurled by
some of the Democrats. And as for John
Roach, they said, instead of arraigning him
as a criminal for being the only man in
America who has the courage and the re
sources to enter upon these steamship con
tracts, they honored him for it, and only
wished the- vere more like him. The
senator who have stood together on this
measure say that there is no doubt about its
adoption by the house promptly on its com
ing up, and it will nut be long delayed in
coming up since it is 4 part of the postoflicc
appropriation bill, which will not admit of
It has not yet been settled how the
money is to be nised for paying the arrears
of pension tinder the late bill. In fact, no
very strong effort hm been made to recon
cile conllicting views upiin the point. The
etimmitt :e on ways and means will shortly
present a plan, it is said, for liquidating
these liabilities as well as others, hut the
general opinion is that no new taxation will
be suggested, nor will the Grccnbuckcr plan
of paying out silver dollars for all delleien
cies prevail. It is more likely if any new
legislation is adopted that it will be in the
nature of authorizing a new issue of bonds.
The Login reception last night was a grand
all'air, considering the unpropiiious weath
er. Tli ' enthusiasm was genuine, and left
no douljt that Senator Logan has hosts of
friends. Yet there are many even among
his friends who commend the determina
tion of senator elect Chimdler to refuse a
public reception as more becoming a sena
tor of the United States. The effort of thu
editorofthe Republican to make the Logan
reception appear like a chapter of the "Grant
movement," so-called by getting himself
uppolnied lo make tho reception speech
was so fliit a failure as his other effort at
the capital reception.
The presiire comers harder and harder;
upmi the president to veto tho anti-Chineso
bill, and it Is extremely doubtful what lie
will do. The latest 'iulluence" brought to
bear is that of tho Methodist church,
which is supposed to have a controling
force In his faith, political and otherwise.
It looks now as though tho rail road-t'lo-graph
ctnus'j of tht rmiiso bill orsotncthiiur
akin to It would be adopted by tho lenate,
and th! Western Union telegraph peoplo
and the New York nssot'l'ited prcsi ogrnU

BARBARITY OF THE WAR IN SOUTH .
The war in South Africa against the
miserable, half-stiirvei, unclad Kaffirs aid
Bushmen by the British, appears to be cur
rie.l on with great barbarity, as instanced
in the following letter to the Capo Town
Argus, by a young volunteer with a ten
derer care for humanity than his fellows:
"Up to the present we have had it pretty
hard, and since I last wrotu wo have been
out on patrol. We started from here
(Koeps) on the morning of thu 20th of
October, and saddled off at a place three
and a half hours' distant. Wc fell ia with
tbe enemy on the morning of the tfOth.
Our Captain and his men were stationed ou
tho kopje, und 'a men underneath..
Capr. "s men then crossed tho river to
see if they could trace the spoor. They
came duck witli too news that the
footprints were going towards Lange
berg. and consisted of Bushmen
and Kaffirs with horses, goafs, and one ox.
We were on tlie Kopje when we received,
word tliat tliu enemy were in the bush
about 1,000 yards away, Copt. s men
men liemg underneath us in the bush. Wo
then had orders to cross the river, and
s men open tire on sonnj ot tho Bush
men in the northern part of the bush,
whom they found sitting down enjoying
the stolen ox which they had slaughtered.
I hey were laughing and sinir.g, seeming
to be very happy, when suddenly they re
ceived bullets to flavor the meat. Tliey
then ran through the bush, expecting to
reach the mountains on the opposite side of
the river, but when they came to the edge
of the river they saw Vennonleu's
men opposite, so that they were completely
hemmed in, and thus perished forty-one of
them, and thirty-four we took prisoners.
Six of our men got leave to cross, as we
were anxious to be in it, and we then went
myself being one of the number to tho
other side of the river, tho bullets from our
own men whistled about our heads by hun
dreds. When we came to the bush wc saw
what I do not wish to see again. Women
with children lying there shot through and
through, no mercy having been shown to
them. I came to one place and a bushman
got up. I raised my gun, but the man
said in Dutch : 'Please, master, don't shoot
me.' I then saw. that he had already "
been wounded, and would have been left
to die; but, as I was speaking to him, a
gun was put quite close to my ear and tired.
The fellow gave one spring and then fell
dead at my feet. On turning round I dis
covered ono of 's men, who said:
'The must not live.' I was glad to
liave it out of my hands, as I did not wish
to kill him after being wounded. They
then drew lots rs to who had to shoot the
prisoners; I mean to say that those who.
could not walk we had orders to
shoot, and I am glad to say that
I was fortunate enough to be out of it
Ono girl was wounded in tho upper part of
the leg and could not walk. As soon as sho
saw the man who was with nie, there being
only us two at the time present, sho recog
nized him as having been onco her master,
whom sho had served for two years. He
wished to help her and bring her to camp,
bttt some of our fellows went through the?
bnWi to see what they could do as to kill
ing any of the wounded that the captain
had overlooked. They shot this girl while
she was binding up her leg with a handker
chief that her former master had given her,
and which he had taken off his hat, all of
us having red handkerchiefs round our hats.
No ono escaped.
GIVING HIM A START. -
, A lonesome-looking boy was hanging. .
around a wood-yard a few days ago, when
tho owner of the yard, having both charity
and philanthrophy for boys with tears in
their eyes, asked tho lad why he didn't
peddle apples, or do something to cam a '
few shillings. The boy replied that he had
no capital, und tho wood man took out a
nickel ami said-
1 "Now, my boy, I'm going to start you in
life. Take this nickel and go and purehuso
something or other. I'll buy it of you for
ten cents, no matter what it is. Come, now,
let's see what kind of a business head you
have on you."
The boy took the nickel and went off;
but in ten minutes ho was back with a gal
lon jug, which ho hud purchased with tho
"Well, you nro a keener," said tho man.
I never saw ono of those sold for less than
fifteen cents to any one. I want just such
u jug, and hero is its fair price. Now go
and lay out your fifteen cents in apples
and I'll buy half your stock.
Tho boy did not return. Perhaps he fell
into a sewer somewhere; but you can't make
the wood-yard man believe so. When h -lifted
the jug from under tho table where
tho hoy had carfully placed it, he found a
hole in tho bottom of tho largo enough to
get a black-and-tan terrier in.
The Springfield Register sums up tho sit
uation thus: "Not a single paper in this
tttate speaks well of thu Republican major
ity of the general assembly. Our lejrisla-
turo is controlled by the most corrupt, ig
norant, lazy and dissipated mob that over
a senibled here. As a body it is without
capacity to devise, much less to completu
wholesome laws, while individually, thu
majority is more worthless and dissipated
than tho worst specimens that have ever
appeared hero. Tho various lobbies aro
encouraged in their notorious work by tho
corrupt motives of tho majority and hy
their incapacity. Most of these creatures
were mere local political tricksters at homo
