Ah Ciii'.ng Koo Fou is tlie intisietil name
of a Chinese inetlical stipleut who ranked
serond in the ntts that graduated, the

"Demooiuts like Thurtnan and liutler,"
is the way the Springfield Journal puts it,
when it wishes to be ('specially severe on
the Hon. li. F. Hutler. We assure the
Journal that the Democratic party does not
need 15. F. liutler; and we might add to
this assurance, that the Republican party
cant aiTord to shako him off. lie is a
power in the land, and while, as we have
said, the Democratic party don't need his
help, the Krpublican party had better not
goad him into an attitude of hostility.
Thk State Register says, at a conference
between the Illinois Central railroad au
thorities and the southern fruit growers, at
Crystal Springs, Mississippi, on the 20th, it
waa arranged that when the fruit season
arrived fruit cars shall be brought to Chi
cago on fast freight time, making the run
in sixty hours. This distance from Chica
go to Crystal Springs is about 80'J miles'
The strawberry crop in that vicinity is
guthered between the 10th and Kith of
April, or ubout three weeks earlier than thut
of southern Illinois.
Thk Caiuo lln.ucTiN does not look
with displeasure upon the presence of ex-
rebel brigadiers in the National Assembly.
It simply deprecated and still deprecates
tho choice of tliose men hkcaisk they were
brigadiers. Let Southern Democrats sink
all thought of the Rebellion, and elect
Congressmen on tin; broad ground of their
litness and sound Democracy, and all will
be lovely. Uutwhilethe.se considerations
arc subordinated to the inquiry, "was he a
successful Yunkce killer," ull will not be
Is CuiCAiiu, party licncs are drawn in
the election of w hool otlicers. The present
school board consists of thirteen 1 tij n1 1 i
cans and two Democrat; and it is notori
ous that Chicago public schouls are tin
most recklessly managi'd schools in the
United States, The teaching of German in
the High schools costs over one hundred
' thousand dollars a year. While this enor
mous expenditure is madeannutilly the fact
is potent to every citizen of Chicago that,
1jocuu.hu of n lack of accommodations, more
tJmn 20,000 children arc crowded out of the
jjilnols altogether. 1 n other words, in or--der
to impart a smattering knowledge of
Jh German lungnag" to less than live thou
iiiiid children, more than 20,000 other'chil
driniirn d.-prived of school privileges of
; any and every character whatever.
A new weeks ugo the country was bowed
vlown I'V lis weight of g.'cf over the sup-
posinl battkrup'.cy of Jay Gould, Fiom the
wreck of his great fortune he lu l not
s wed enough to protect liim from the in
sults of his inipoitiinat hiundrc.-se. Like
Will. II. YllIldrlMlt, he Was no poof thut,
had the navy of (ireat llntain been on the
market for ten do'Jais, he could not. of his
own means, have bought one of the life
boats. Iiut"preto! chang" 1" Jay Could
is now himself again. Only a f'W days
ago n wealthy -vndicate paid liim $7,000,000
for 100,(1110 shares of I'nion Paeitie railroad
stock, which cost him less than $:i,0()0,000.
He is still the holder of 1)0,000, worth
$7,000,000 more, and doesn't owe a dollar
on it. Wherefore, the country may hold
up its head again. The immaculate Jay
Could is ''lived."
Til K liepublicans of Illinois ought to be
proud of Senator Ogclsby. On Saturday
last, at 11 :o() o'clock he rose in his place,
in the. Senate, and with ull the seeming of
the statesman that he is, he said: "Mr.
President, I move we adjourn." His mo
tion was not agreed to; but was the Illinois
stat'Sinaii "snull'clouti" Not much; but,
inspired by the one great, overshadowing
d 'sire to serve his country, at 1 :lo o'clock,
he again rose to his feet and delivered him
self H9 follows: l,I now move you, sir, that
the Senate adjourn." This motion, too, was
voted down, and there that 'self-sacrificing
patriot remained until 1:4.) o'clock a
martyr to duly, and for aught we know
very hungry. We see it, now, that a great
mistake w as made in the election of Logntj.
If the Senate needs one thing more than an
other it is the constant presence of a Sena
ator who, like Oglesby, is constantly on the
watch for an eligible chance to "move to
EvKiiY week, almost ever day. the bet
ter classes of our people are appalled by
the details of bow some poor devil who
owed the law one life was made to suffer a
hundred deaths in paying the debt. The
hanging of the negro raviher, George
Wa.-hington. was a must bungling piece ol
work, but will be repeated, every week, or
perhaps oftcner, while- o eJuig to our
most barbarous method of executing our
criminals. If ever a man deserved t die
in all the tortures that human ingenuity
can devise, that man was the negro Wash
ington, lb- and a confederate, who is yet
at large, seized a little German girl,
only twelve years of age, who was out
hunting the cows in the subhurhs of Louis
ville, and brutally ravished her, uing a
knife to accomplish their mo.-t diabolical
aims. l!ut had the offense been much less
aggravating, the results would have been
the same. Vi'hen the trap upon which the
black fiend stood, was sprunir, his fall
broke the rope, and he fell to the ground.
Then the horrible spectacle ensued of
gathering up the limp negro, carrying him
to the platform, and putting him a second
time through the process of hanging. This
time the rope held its weight, and in a few
minutes the incarnate devil was dead. In
no other civilized country on the face of
the "lobe could such linrrifviiur ami annull
ing scenes be enacted. They are peculiar
to the V mted States, and are a standini'
disgrace to the people --to the age in which
Till: THXAS PACIFIC PKO.IIXT.
Much has occurred of late to weaken the
prospects of the eai-K puss.tge c,f such a
bill as will insure the Texas Pacific mil
road, "Scott's bill" has been lir-t sight of
under u pile of rubbish, called ameiiilineiits,
substitutes, counter-propositions; by the
Johnson bill, the Withers bill, the Kellogg
and Ilutlcr.lulls, etc., ni ne of which come
up to the apparent needs of the situation.
They are shaped according to ihe eon!lict
ing interests of different localities, ami
may, fur aught we know to the contrary, be
a part of the means adopted by the wily
Huntingdon & Co., to compass the defeat
of the Scott bill, which embodies the only
scheme thus far devised, for the construc
tion of the red Southern Pacific
railroad. With the editor of the
New Orleans Times, we havo but
one desire in this matter, and that Is to
secure a transcontinental railway along the
iJ-nd parallel, with an Kastern terminus at
some central point on the Mississippi river
a railway which will come in geuuinu
competition with the L'nioii Pacific, which
will he national iu its character and cenitul
iu its location, and which will guarantee
to all the railroads, communities and sea
ports in the country wishing to connect 1111
absolute equality of opportunity and priv
ilege. Wo have never desired Anything
other than this. Our support of tho Texas
Pacific bill known us T0111 Scott bill was
animuted by this idea solely, and because
wu believe that bill would secure the re
sults we had In view. We were not inter
ested In Mr. Scott or any of his combina
tions, and the same bill or a bill embracing
equally sati:'aetory point, offered by John
Jones or .Napoleon Smith, would have had
our approval und advocacy In evactly the
The faet is that we care ' ;'i;.tu.; about

( ran ..ni!!fl with the public intm-t ami
the honest, straightforward welfare of the
whole country; and, even thus far, our soli
citude is not tor tho enterprise us Scott's
it is for the enterprise as tho nation's. We
have time and time again declared that the
transcontinental railway should be unsullied
by local complications, that it should be
national in the highest and purest sense
ot the word. The only privilege we
have ever claimed or thought of claiming
is prcisely the privilege we insist on having
extended to every other locality, to-wit: the
privlege of absolute equality, and protec
tion in that equality, in the terms on which
they connect with the trunk road and com
