pose to build steamboats adapted for great
speed, and make try-weekly tiips between
New Orleans and St. Louis. For this ser
vice the goverment pays an amount equal
to twelve or fourteen hundred dollars a day,
or an amount quite sufficient to cover the
runniug expenses of the half dozen boats
that will be engaged in the service. As the
boats will carry but little freight, they will
carry small crews, and the expenses will bt
correspondingly lessened. The service will

The Chinese question will not be dropped

Eic.HTY-six years ago one Don Joseph
Vaillicrre, a Spanish captain, was stationed
with a regiment of soldiers, in what was
then known as the province ol Louisiana.
In acknowledgment of his deeds of valor
Don Francesco, beuron de Carondalet. gov-enor-gcneral
of the province, nude the
captain a grant of 7,27(5; 800 acres of land,
lying on tlio White river, and now em
braced within the limits of the States of
Missouri and Arkansas, covering the whole
area of about nine counties in each State.
Subsequently, as is known, the province of
Louisiana was sold by France to the United
States, nti'l. through the success of sharp
practice the title papers to the immense
grant, never came into our possession. The
heirs of Don Joseph Vaillierre sued for the
recovery of the grant or its equivalent, and
it was only u few weeks ago that the Su
preme Court put n quietus upon the claim.
The land involved is vrnrth $1'. 7)00,000 or
In tiik capitol building of the Stat.' of
iuorgia, u. few days ago, two proinhent
citizens engaged iu a heated discussion,
which was closed by the almost simultu
ncoiu rriK'k of two revolvers, and the instant
death of one of the disputants. The com
ments in which the Atlanta Constitution in
dulged, in speaking of the tragedy, fit
every community thatdoesnot employ every
means at its command lo put tin end to the
crimiuiil habit of carrying concealed weap
ons --mid me not, therefore, wholly inapli
cable lo Cairo. "Who is responsible," asks
the Ciiiistitnlion. "for the public sentiment
that lets a man go prepared to kill his fel
low man; that tolerates the termination of
a heated tliscussi u on the closing up of a
bargain with, the snap of the deadly revol
ver; that renders liTu insecure in one of the
origuiul thirteen itates as in New Mexico?
The aiiBWer la uot pleasant. The pulpit, the
Ires, the leader of public opinion, wheth
rr in town or country, city or liamlet, "are
responsible, primarily and justly, fr every
lawless act of viol nee that is ci iiimitted in
tlio state. That responsibility cannot ho

of a community is squarely responsible for
11a acts that grow out of a public sentiment
formed by it. . The blood of the innocent
is on the hands ot the men who have croa
tedan unsound piiblicseiitiuient, or which
is equally as criminal -permitted such a sen
timent to spring up. Plain words are these
but is it nut hiijh time for plain words.'"'
Thf. revised statutes of the United States
einb.idy a law that provides that no mem
ber of Congress shall be entitled to pay
while absent from his seat without leave.
Senator Sharon, of Nevada, lit1 led his seat
les than sixty days during the past four
years, yet this conscienceless Radical, in
defiance of law, has drawn from the treas
ury, a salary and mileage, over thirty
thousand dollars. Although one ot the
richest men in America, if measured by
dollar and cents, and one of the poorest in
the senate, when measured intellectually,
yet the shameless fellow has exacted pay
fiom tht! government at the rate of five
hundred dollars a day, for the time lie filled
his seat iu the United States Senate. Upon
at least $2.,(00 of the amount he had no
shadow of a claim the law so declared,
and we had a man iu the White House
resting under the obligation of an oath to
enforce the law. lint no one thinks of in
quiring why the law was permitted to stand
as a dead letter, or why the greedy Nevad
ain was permitted to plunder the treasury.
The reason is apparent: the Republican
party is iu power.
While certain parties in Illinois are
clamoring for the abolishment of our board
of Railroad ami Warehouse Commissioners
as many as five other states of the Union
are providing for the creation of such
boards. A bill has been reported back by
the Missouri Senate committee on Internal
Improvements providing for the creation of
a board of three Railroad Commissioners, to
serve six years, it being made their duty to
exercise general supervision over the con
struction, maintenance,- operation and gen
eral management d( all the railroads of
Missouri. In urging the establishment of
such a commissiwn a member declared with
much truth that the mere existence of such
a board, standing as it did, between the
people and the great railroad corporations,
with power in its hands to bring the moral
force of the whole State to its aid iu the
vindication of the rights of the people,
would have a restraining effect upon rail
road corporations that would be worth to
the people, ten times the cost of the com-

puny resentments of n single individual,
they respect and fear the whole people, as
represented iu the Railroad Commissioners.
Saving in the voice of a few carpers in Ill
inois, mostly in the southern portion, there
is heard no outcry against such commis
sions anywhere. They have been establish
ed in thirteen or fourteen States of the
Union already, and nowhere, outside ot
Illinois, the greatest railroad State in the
Union, is any desire expressed to get rid of
The decision ot the New York courts
on the laws of marriage, make the consum
mation of marriage there easy and economi
cal. It has been judicially decided, for
instance, that the man and woman who play
the role of husband and wife, are husband
and wife, as fully and effectually as they
would be, hail they conformed to all the
customary fjrins. Hence it young Popkins
wants to marry, the first thing iu order is to
find a girl who is willing to be known as
Mrs. Popkins. This done, he takes that
girl around among his friends and intro
duces her us his wife. A like round is
made among her friends, and she in like
manner introduces I'opkins as her husband
and, thereafter, the law of New York looks
upon the twain as "bone of one bone," or
something of that sort, thai is kmppo.scd to
be descriptive of two in one. From that
time forth the law will compel Popkins to
pay that woman's More bills, and public
seiitinieut will demand that he provide her
with "duds and fodder." If it be desirable
that the marriage be made a maMcr of rec
ord, a joint certificate by tin.' contracting
parties, Muting that they had"c!oved" to one
another f.ir I 'tier or for wors, will be,
iuid has been held as sufficient. We
wouldn't advise anybody in Illinois to
"hitch" in that inaiiii"r, however, for the
reason that our stupid grand juries have an
ugly habit of indicting the parties to irreg
ular marriages, for living together in a
state of lewdness. Here we are subjected
to a form that puts a dollar into the pocket
of the County Clerk ami not less than an
other dollar into the pocket of a Justice of
tin; Peace or a minister. Many a young
man, who pants for the blessings of matri
mony, finds the tw'o dollar obstacle insur
mountable. It may bit argued that the
young man who cun't raise two dollars
ought not to be allowed to marry. People
who take that view of the subject are very
narrow minded. For all they know the
girl may be n good washer and can take

care of her husband. Shall the young man
be denied the posession of such a treasure,
because of his inability to pay two dollars
for an "idle ceremony?" We think not;
the courts of New York say "No" -and if
the present General Assembly rises up to
a comprehension of the needs of the hour,
the way to married blessedness will be
cleared of its two-dollar stumbling block,
so that tlio youth without a nickle can
marry the girl without a nickle, and build
