right direction than its author intended. It
was offered as a satire on tin propensity of
ihe average legislator to avail himself of
all deadheading opportunities, but it i
now seriously proposed to include in the
provisions of the bill all State, county and
municipal officers, its well its those holding
places by appointment of the Governor.
The Senate will at all events have an op

I.Tejsed an opinion that will receive very
general indoi- 'incnt, except pel h:ps, among
school teachers, lie says there is no war
rant in law for the detention of pupils nfter
the close of school. The tini. outside of
school hours, In1 says, "Wongs to the par
ents, and I am of the opinion that pupils
cannot he detained legally without their
con- nt. There may be cases that will
justify the detention of pupils for a short
time, hut they ure rare. If a hoy is vicious
on the way home, he can undoubtedly b? de
tained until the other pupils ure out of the
way; but he cannot be detained tor a definite
length of time as punishment, or to make
up lessons. Every child attending pchool
has a right to claim his recess, and to deprive
him of this is inhuman. It may be given
him with the balance of the school or at
some other time."
Skxatoii Zach C'iianiilf.r has exhibited
more of the real statesman nnd true man
than was looked for. Unlike Logan and i
Carpenter and other Republican Senators
who teli'gr.iihed the wink to Washington
bummers to get up "grand reception?,"'
Chandler has no d site to humbug the peo
ple in any such manner. The processions,
speech-makings and fireworks over the re
turn of Carpenter nnd Logan will not quiet
the doubts that these are fortunate events
either for t'ae country or the party. '.Vi a
rub- this sort of demonstration in Washing
ton is not mad" over men in whom the peo
ple have the. most conlidenc?. and as often
as it is chronicled suspicions are excited.
There is a crowd of political bummers ut
the capital, most of whom feed at the pub
lic crib, and il is no difficult matter f r
them to g"t up a pr.-c-.-sio.'i or a s-renade,
which tickles the vanity of their patrons
p-rhaps, it signiiies nothing good to the
people at larg .
Wiikn the half huii'lred legislative
round"! vi-i!(.d Carbomlalc, the i-tudents
of the Normal school were put through the
"light gymnastics." This exercise consists
of shooting f;ut one arm and then the other,
drawing back both with a thump on the
i-reart, whirling the h -ad, weaving the J
body too and Iro. shooting the list., aloft
giving the should rs spasmodic jerks, and j
sundry other movements which ure grace
f j1 or oth'-rwis , according to the standpoint
from which they ar- coiitemplal "d. All
this wjs done to please the round -rs, ami
here is how the rude utid unapprecia

The Connecticut Hon-. of R pn s"iit.i
tives is di aling with a qu "stion that will
soon command agr-at deal of discussion.
We refer to the taxation of church lu-np-erty.
A number of years ago a M -llmdist
Confer 'tice in S 'Ssion in .Matto .n. in this
State expressed itself in favor ol subjecting
all church property to its due share of the
public burdens. It was correctly argued
that, as a certain amount of taxes jn r...
quired annually, it was a matter of no
great moment to the p-opl", what the
items tliut made up the aggregate might
be called. If $100,000 taxes ure called for,
and $10,000 of the sum is charged to
church property, only 1)0,000 would be ex
acted from other species of
property. If nothing were charged
tj churches, the full if 1 00,000 would
be levied upon the other species of pro
perty solely. The property owner would
be called unm to pay $100,000 in any
event, and if $10,000 should be paid as
church properly tax, the other property
would be relieved, precisely to that extent.
Rut the Connecticutt legislature doesn't
propose to go to that extent. It aims at
the enactment of a law that will render
church property tliut is used for business
purposes, taxable. Church congregations
that own lands and tenements from which
they derive a revenue, ought to pay, upon
such property, the same taxea that un indi
vidual, similarly situated, would be coin-
pelledtu pay. This Is the nature of tho bill
pending in the Connecticutt General Asuem.
lily. It has many staunch advocates and
would doubtless become a law but for the
apprehensions entertained by a number of
the members that it would but serve as an
entering wedjji, mid would noun lead to
the taxrion of chunli (.ropcrty generally
-to an application of the m-el of (ieneral
It is a fact that is chissable among tho
axioms that every lazy, shiftless, dissipat
ed lalKiriiv.' mm of the country holds that
there exist- an irrepressible contlict be
tween capit.d and labor. There may be
and is much contention between the poor
man and the rich, but between money and
industry there can be no contlict. In the
very nature of tilings such antagonism is
impossible. The editor of the Shawnee
IK-nhl nuts the mitt. Tin a very plain and
terse manner, end shows that labor is capi
tal, and c.iun it, therefore, be in contlict
with itself. The editor says that "windy
politicians are much in the habit of dilat
ing upon the oppressions of labor by capi
tal, vet. if they would stop fur a moment to
think they would -ee that there is no real
capital in the world except labor. With
labor a nun can procure (vrything he
desires, and were it not tor the products of
labor what is called capital would be more
valueless than the gras of the field.
Capital, or money, is simply a medium by
the us.- of which the laborers in the dim-rent
departments of life exchange the pro
ducts of their toil with one another, and the
moment men cease to labor the use for money
and the supposed value of it will cease to be. j
The only capitalists of the country ure the
laborers, and as people lire inducud to see (
I mat labor is nonoraoie ami uigniUM, so .
will the laborers and the prosperity of the ;
whole people increases. The greatest source
of trouble to the present generation is that !
so many of the people have allowed them- J
selves to believe that if they could only se- '
cure the passage of the laws they a.sk to I
have enacted, the necessity for labor would ;
cease." . !
