Chairman Judicial Committee.
April 4, 1879.
The best the most crushing answer-
to the clamor of the Republican politicians
and to th 'j Okolona lunatic, that tho Demo
crats, now that they have a majority in
both Houses of Congress, and aro on the
eve of elect'ng the President, aro Intent on
overthrowing the Federal Government and
substituting the Confederate Government,
is to be found in the unprecedented avidity
with which Boston and New York financiers
last week, bought the 4 per cent, funding
bonds of the United States Government.
Skiatou David Davis has finally dcclar
- 1 . 1 C 1 . , .
w uiuitM.-ii, una come over to tno . rartv oi
tho people and the country. Alluding to
las recent speech on the Army appropria
tion bill the Paducah News remarks, that
the Senator was emphatic in his declaration
that the law that placed Federal Soldiers
' Marshals and Supervisors at the voting
places of the people ought to be repealed,
niniki intra was rw.ti.m,. ...
,,.. ,,,. ;,uUUIIIU or
of ft nature to coerce the President in the
jUn of attaching bills. Ho referred to the
statement of Blaine that Lincoln' hand
- . A . . .
, woulU raise iroui me Illinois prairies, and
wither the cX-ConfederateH for attempting
.; the repeal, and said that ho wus proba
bly a intimate witli.Lincoln as any man that
. t anil frntn Ills Irniiu'loilirn of 1,!...
evw liiwvi, .. .v v.gv. i. linn
he was prepared to say if living he would ask
, that what wa being done might bo done.
Ii concluding, tho Senator nicidently re
nuVstl that the lawi of the United States
"were sow being observed North and South,
and that it was a fit t!me to repeal war
measures. As he sat down Logan's voico
was heard asking a question of his ;ollca
rue and stating that more violations of tho
whisky frauds were being prosecuted South
than North. Davis replied that this was
tiivial, that he meant the general Federal
laws m a comprehensive sense. Hut, add
ed he, it may he that whisky thieves are
not so often prosecuted in the North as h
the South. The significant allusion to
Logan's well known efforts in aid of whisky
crooks brought a snnlo to every face, and
so the short but spicy colloquy ended."
De La Ma yah, the Indiana Greenbacker,
wants togive tho million of tramps in the
United States, employment at government
expense. With that object in view ho asks
congress to authorize the immediate issue
of one billion greenbacks, to enter into a
vast system of internal improvement, and
pay them out as the work progresses. No
provision is made for the redemption of the
money, for the pictured scraps of paper arc
to be money itself. 'While it is undeniable
that such a scheme would make things
l,bcom"for awhile, the man who thinks
that the flat money would not soon bink !n
value, and, as compared with cold 0D(
silver and redeemable paper, soon become
comparatively worthless, lias a wonderful
confidence in the power and efficacy of a
A leading Democratic paper of Indiana
sayt that Thus. A. Hendricks will not ac
cept the second place on the Democratic
Presidential ticket of 1S80. This is his "ir
revocable decision," etc. Well, now, what
of it ? The Democratic party would pro
bably survive if Sir. Hendricks should hap
pen to bo left off the ticket altogether. But
of one thing ilr.. II. can Test assured, and
that is if he ever occupies the first place on
thctickct, it will uotbcinlSSO. Tonominatc
Mr. II. over the head of Mr. Tilden would
be a gross insult to that eminent statesman
and a virtual confession of the truth of all
the Republican slanders and falsehoods of
which he is the victim." But, after all, isn't
the distinguished Indianan a ,:ttle too fast.
Before ''declining the honor" ;n 6uch a per
cmptory manner, wouldn't it have been-in
better taste to have waited until there was
something like a ccrta'nty that the honor
would be offered ? We think so.
Dkcknt Republican editors have become
ashamed of such littleness, and quit it We
mean that they have quit publishing ex
tracts from tho Okolona Southern States,
and swearing that the Southern States
speaks tor the Democratic party. It was
too little a business for tho honestly inclined
Republican editor; but there arc creturcs at
the head of Republican papers who not
only republish all the vile trasli cf that sort
that emanates from the brain of the Oko
lona Union Sutler; but manufacture viler
stuff of their own and credit it to Okolona
parentage. But ''it's all the Eame." The
idea of holding the four million Democrats
of the United States responsible tor the in
sane vaporings of a single man and that
man the publisher of an obscure half-patent
weekly newspaper is so preposterous, is so
manilestly unfair that honest men of all
parties can but despise the creatures who
are working to that end.
The Republican Senate that stepped
down and out on the 4th of March last, is
one of the deliberative bodies of our times
that will go down to histoiy as the body
that didn't care a continental for expenses,
as long as somebody else footed the bills.
Thu record made is one that honest Repub
licans will study with disgust and indigna
tion. Tho report of the .Sergcant-at-arms
shows that liberal supplies of cologne
and of bay rum were purchased at the ex
traordinary price of $8 per gallon fur the
former and $4 for the latter. Six dozen
hair brushes were bought at a cost of $144;
four gross assorted soap $130, and other
toilet aiticle at prices equally villuinous,thc
whole producing a total that is utterly ap
palling to men who have a care us to how
tho money goes, Thu Democratic party
now has control of tho Senate, and is mak
ing ito record for the future; but it lias not
and it will not pay lo0 for a quantity of
lancy soup that a messenger boy might
carry in his arms from Capitol, hill to tin
White house, nor will it pay $114 for a half
gress ot hair brushes. If it does wo shall
expect honest men to damn it, and drive it
from a position it disgraces.
"Four million blacks, represented by on
ly ono of their own color,'' yelled stall-fed
Logan, in the senate, last week. And the
miiuner in which the Chester Clarion re-
sjionds is admirable, capital.
"And only one ofthelr own color." What

Has John Brown's soul marched, clear out

physical bondage for political thralldom?
Will the "party of great moral ideas" and
infamous rractues never keep the promises
made to its black vassals ! The negro can
not be forever deceived. The ''forty acres
and a mule" proved but a dream ; the Frecd
man's Bureau, a fraud; the Freedman's
Saving Banks, a gigantic scheme to plun
der the blacks of their little earnings; forc
ed negro tupcrmacy in the South, a failure ;
and tho hope of securing politcal equality
is found to be a delusion, now that (very

in the general government, remaining at the
disposal of the Republicans, is occupied ly
a stall-fed white, while, the black man is
kicked into the back-yard to eat husks
with the swine, until his vote is needed to
