M.lf. Ilavroll, Kilitor.
Senator Waiu:, of this district, has furn-
' ishoil, for tho columns of liis homo paper, a
j synopsis of the work thus far performed Ity
( the Senate an attention that his constitu
I cnta will appreciate. The editor, in ilis
f cussing tltc more prominent measures, says
: If ihat the act piovidin for employing petty
criminals upon the streets and roads should
i become a law. Tlie tax lor supporting
i lazy thieves in jail would he diminished,
and there, would he a check upon these
jj criminals who would not fancy working
in a chain gang. The contemplated con
stitutioual amendments are also of
' ;. er.'at impirtanci, to-wit: electing Mierifi
aad Treasurer for four years, and makinir
thciii ineligible for the succeeding term.
The proposition, relieving real estijtc from
State tux is working well practically, in
Pennsylvania, and would he just to all por
tions of the State. The Illinois Cential It.
A. Co., pays sufficient tax to the State for
all the lands, aud they should bo exempt
from State taxation; in fact this large reve
enno from this company should pay all the
State expenditures, now that the public
buildings are all completed, and the State
very little in debt. The Legislature arc
now at work to some purpose, and if they
will shut down on new bills this month
they can get through w ith business in six
days and return home in time for harvest.
IF WE MUST. WE WILL
The Jonesboro Gazette holds, with The
XMro Bulletin, that judicial elections
Vhouui not be degraded to the plane of
party contests. In the hope ot separating

upon a time for holding them when, it was

Weasrircs looking to the holding of a con
'Veatloritlie democracy of the circuit must
and will, do the .same'. Tito vote thrown
lastNovcmber shows the circuit to be Demo
cratic by a few hundred votes. As all the
abie stumpers belong to the Democratic
tide of the political house, and as tho gen
tlrmen who would, most likely, obtain the
Democratic nomination, are known as the
most popular, indefatigable and effective
anvasHers in the State, the majority would
be run up to two thousand votes. Hence,
the refusal of the Democrats to accept the
Republican challenge, would be an cxhihi
fwia of cowardice of which the Democratic
party doc not propose to bo guilty. It
-would bo cowardly were the party in a
fcoptilcw minority; but, with victory assured
it would bu party suicide. Our Republican
friends may take it for granted, therefore,
that they will not be permitted to tako ud

can nominees. That game is as good us

"AN OPINION AS IS AN OPINION."
A noticeable, n conspicuous fault of Sen
ator Logan is his unconquerable, penchant
to talk, lie talks too much feels culled
upon to "rise in his place" entirely too
often. The result is that he not unfrequent
ly gives voice to a great volume ot words
that mean nothing. He talks frothily.
Wlieu he prepares his "extemporaneous"
efforts when he brings in the "iron hail,"
and "shattered columns of liberty," he is,
usually, equal to the occasion; but upon all
possible occasions he bounces into debate
without giving the matter in hand a mo
ment's thought, trusting to the inspiration
of the time to suggest something appropri
ate. As everything n United States Sena
tor says is published broad-cast over the
country, no Senator should talk unless he
has something to say. If such a custom
had prevailed, Logan most certainly would
have been choked off when, ten years ago,
he attempted to speak to the question of
Georgia's rc-ad mission into the Union. The
mythical Jack Bunsby and Widow Bedott,
are laid completely in the shade by his re
marks on that occasion. We don't pretend to
say that Logan can't make a good speech,
anil an able one, for we know he can, but
while this is true, it is also true that no
proirinent man in America has made half
as many poor ones. Take away Logan's voice,
style and animation and he would, except
on extraordinary occasions, sink to the level
The following extract is from his speech
on Georgia, and although not an average
sample, it certainly indicates the character
of the whole speech :
"Now, sir," Mid he, "when a State akefornd

TUB CHICAGO TRIBUNE MAN HIS
The Chicago Tribune is not a recognized
pet in the Republican household, tor the
icnson, in part, that it doesn't regard John
A. Logan a greater statesman than was
Charles Sumner, and a purer man than was
Millard Fillmore. But the Tribune very
frequently indulges in the luxury of telling
the truth a habit that keeps Republican
leaders in constant suspense and is very
reckless, as a general thing, concerning
consequences. It tells the Republican
party that it made a most stupid and inex
cusable blunder in not passing the anti-
Chinese bill, over the veto. Not that he.
of the Tribune, wanted to relieve the Pa
cific coast of the curse of great and grow
ing hordes of Mongolians; not that .he
cared anything about the sufferings and
privations of the tens of thousands of la
borers there of Caucussian blood. He
cared nothing about the disease and squalor,
the idleness and suffering chargeable to the
presence of the Chinese element in California.
Not he. He viewed the matter solely from
a political watch-tower, aud contemplating
it therefrom, he exclaims, with a visable
twinge of exasperation and disgust ut Re
publican stupidity : "The failure to pass
the bill over the veto mny prove n national
(meaning Republican, Ed.) calamity, as it
will give the Democrats an exceedingly
effective weapon with which to enter upon
the next campaign." Which is tantamount
to: "There, you stupids! You have given
yourselves completely away. Had you
passed tho bill, the question would have
been put out of the arena of discussion;
but having failed to do so, you place a
bludgeon in Democratic hands with which
they will brain fully one-half of all the
Republican voters of Oregon and Califor
nia. "American labor" and all that sort of
clamor, is chaff; the maintenance of a Re-
publican majority in the Pacific Slates
everything. You have ignorantly and idi
otically given away that majority, and the
nation must suffer tho calamity of a Re
publican defeat! Thus talks the man of
the Chicago Tribune, in apparent oblivious.
Mm of tho winks and blinks and grimaces
of his party, the lenders of which are in a
frenzy, because ho doesn't keep his dam
aging) mouth shut!
THE MOSS-COVERED ABOMINATION
Hon. J. H. Carter, of Johnson county,
the author of tho bill U abolish the Grand
Jury nuisuncc, has been denounced by the
opponents ol the measure, with greut viru
lence Ono t ditor, in a vein of virtuous in
dignation,' exclaims: "What, lay vandal
hands upon an institution of our country,
cwonirud in the hearts of the
people ai one of the precious
legacies of our fathers!" Undoubtedly
and snatch ft into nothingness, too, with all
possible expedition. The times have out
grown it it is a hindcrance to the prompt
auministration of justice, and without solv
ing one single good purpose, costs the tax
payers of Illinois more than two hundred
thousand dollars. No writer or speaker has
attempted to defend the system as a present
necessity; but one and all ot its defenders
indulge in gush, froth and top
loftical nonsense would preservo it
because it is old is hoary
with the moss of ages! So, too, was slavery
an "institution of our fathers;" but en
lightened people now remember it only as
u horrible national night-mare. But the
"moss" argument is the veriest of clap trap.
People have learned to value things by a
different standard; and are constantly
reaching out and striving for something
better and more useful. The spirit and
impulse that would maintain the Grand
Jury system, is the stand-still, non-pro-gressivo
spirit. It cried "hold," when men
of progressive ideas sought to cast nside
the "shovel plow," and substitute the culti
vator; it mourned over the displacement of
the sickle and hand-cradle by the M.H'or
mick reaper; and covered itself nil over
with the jjisignia of sorrow when the steam
car and telegraph shoved aside those dar
ling " institutions of our fathers," the post
riuer and the stage coach. Had such a
spirit governed, the world would never
have made any substantial progress. But
it didn't govern. Thought and inquiry
defied and overleaped all trammels and
restraints, and reaching out for
something newer and better, obtained it
and forced the world to move forward.
The fact that the jury system is old that
it subserved the cuds of the people living
duner a limited monarchical form of gov
ernment, this fact, of itself, would furn
ish a strong presumption that the
institution is not adjustable to the
needs ot this advanced age and free peo
ple. It is, indeed, a one-sided question,
wholly. While there is not one, single
valid reason for maintaining the system,
there are many and forcible reasons for
abolishing it. Thes" will occur to every
intelligent man who gives the subject un
hour's thought- arc known to every mem
ber of the General Assembly, and should
control that body when it passes upon
Representative Carter's bill. Iu deference
to the old fogies of the day the expensive
abomiuatiou has been maintained too long
