Washington, May 12. The. veto mess
age came into the house to-day, was read
and laid over till to-morrow lor considera
tion. Prom the Democrats it elicits gener
al ridicule as a legal proposition, but it is
received with favor as a political issue, as
they claim to want no better one upon
which to go to the country. The message
is made up from Edmund's speech of last
Friday in the senate, being in places almost
ideuical with the argument. The Demo
crats have determined upon no particular
line of action further than to send to the
president the legislative bill now beiug de
bated in the senate and albw him to veto
that. There are may Democrats who tie
sire sending up to be vetoed the silver and
other bills tmd then extend the appropria
tions by joint resolution Until January.
These Democrats say the party was never
in favor of withholding the appropriations,
but were more or less committed to such a
policy by the indiscreet speeches of some of
their number. There is no doubt this sen
timent will prevail in the loiigrun, although
there are members who insist on withhold
ing appropriations, iu which course they
say they find
In the letters from their constituents. There
are still more who are for such a policy
regarding the army appropriation bill, who
do not believe in withholding appropria
tions for the legislative judicial aud exe
cutive expenses. No caucus has been an
nounced, and it is likely none will be held
until after the president vetoes the legisla
tive bill, the advice of the wiser men in the
party being against caucusing, but to leave
the question to the caucus committee. There
is one plan prevailing to a great extent
among Democrats, which is, after Hayes
vetoes the present bill to send him the
army appropriation bill, providing in each
section that none of the money thus appro
priated shall be used to keep troops at the
polls. It is also suggested to cut the army
down to ten thousand men. In the legisla
tive bill the plan is to be carried out by
stipulating in the pertinent sections that
none of the money is to be used for depu
ty marshals 011 the day of election. This
will maintain the essence of the issue but
will not repeal the laws objected to and
will give Hayes still less room for ai veto.
Are much divided on the veto, although
they hide as much as possible till appear
ance of n division. It is, nevertheless,
true that but three of tho cabinet, Devcns
Sherman and Thompson, were affirmatively
in favor of tho veto. McCcary was much
provoked at it, saying too much use of
the one man power would make the veto
a burlesque, and that this bill was not so
bad us the president tries to make it appear
to be. Evarts, Sehurz and Key were in
clined against the veto. The fact is Zach
Chandler is "a biger man" than Hayes and
all of his cabinet,
THE UllI'l IlLICAN rOt.ICY.
The president's friends to-night claim
that he has saved the Republican party for
1380; that tho party was disunited and
about to go under, which Mr. Hayes did
not want occur during his administration
the president was willing to bo convicted
of duplicity iu saying in his first message,
what lie would like, and then getting that,
refusing to accept it, Ids great aim is to unite
the party and put it in spirited temper
ment for 1880. Tho Republicans now say
that tho campaign in 1880 is to bo states,
rights and federal rights, in which they
enn make tho Rebellion tnko prominent
part. A loading Democratic senator pre
dicts that troops will bo stationed in tho
targe cities of the North on election day,
NEW SERIES-NO. 277
as they were in Philadolihia and New .
York in 1870, and that Hayes will, train
this out, be comiiletely under the control
of stalwarts and will stultfy '.himself to be
servile to their wishes. Those in his tinrtv
who disapprove of this course, are very quiet,
but the stalwart say that they must cither
join in the movement, or go out as they
did be tore. Zach Chandler is represented
to have said that the lirst object was to get
Hayes, after which attention could be giv
en to Evarts and Sehurz.
JOTTINGS FROM WASHINGTON.
Special correspondence of Tho Bulletin .
Washinoton, May 11, 1879.
The drift of speculation has turned a
good deal away fiom the possibility or prob
ability of the President's action touching
the new army bill to the political aspect in .
Ohio. ,Tho transformations there relative
to the leading characters in the coming po
litical struggle appear to bo sudden and
startling. First, wo had a report that Sec
retary Sherman had gone to that State to
log roll for tho nomination for Governor.
This report was so seriously accepted that
Secretary Sherman's friends here found it 1
necessary to "hedge" and they invented the
story that the report was got up by the
Democrats to force Gov. Hishop off the
course and give place to a more promising .
candidate. Next, we have the story that
this Sherman story about l,a more promis
ing candidate ' is the invention of Sher
man's friends alone, having no foundation
in fact, but having for its purpose to make
Sherman's nomination a necessity to defeat
Judge Thurman or sonic other popular
Democratic candidate. Willi these cnntlict-
uig yarns comes counter reports relatives 10 j
i i p. t-t. . 1 1 .
iiieueiuunu lor rmerman, wnicn are geuiunc
er doctored according to the opinion we in
voke. Through it all the truth appears
to be that Sherman, like every American
citizen, wauts to be president, aud is really
trying to ascertain what is the best course
to reach the object of his ambition. So far,
however, as the Ohio 'governorship is de
sirable as a stepping stone, he will proba
bly fail in making it, since nearly all Re
publicans here incline to believe that Judge
Taft has a stronger hold upon the party
than Mr. Sherman can have. On the other
side, at is said that thero are conspiracies
within conspiracies todisposu of the surplus
Democratic candidates, and that Judge
Thurman, who is attending to his duties as
senator and temporary president of the sen
ute, will buffer from them. Ho has tiio ad
vantage, however, of having John G.
Thompson's friendship, and Mr. T. is the
best political manager on .the Democratic

The discussion in the house yesterday
of the bill proposing to change the law
relative to coinage ot silver, did not
redound largely to the honor of the Green
backers, who were exposed to tho tire of
those who oppose the disturbance of the
financial rpiestions at this session. The
speakers who assailed tho bill exposed the
wild nature of the Greenback schemes so
pointedly that many of tho men claiming
the "party of the future'' were disposed to
explain and deny somewhat. In fact sotiio
of the Greenbackcrs themselves have lie
come considerably conservative since they
came to congress. They have heard from
the country tv the effect that it wants rest
upon these vexed rpiestions. Considerable
talk has been caused by tho movement of
the Michigan Greenbackcrs to inaugurate
the "Maine campaign" in that state to help
their brethren in the pine tree state. Tho
Maine election occurs early in September
and great stress is always placed upon tho
result there. It is well known hero that
the Republicans will make great efforts to
recover the state this year from
the Greenback-Democratic- coalition,
and this Michigan movement is proba
bly a part of the general plan to offset those
efforts. The address of the Michigan green-
hackers appealing for aid for "the brethern
in Maine" has caused tv ripple here and
will have the effect to incite both sides to
unusual work, Maine, will be a pretty hot
state politically this year. I am inclined
to think, however, that tho fight will ho
more between the Democrats and Republi
cans than it was last year, and that green
backism as a distinct issue is losing its
hold there as it is elsewhere.
The new army bill will not probably lie
disposed of by the scuato this week. In fact,
the Democrats in that body do not uppcar
in such haste tu disposo of it as those in
tho house were, and several of them are
supposed to be loaded with long speeches
upon it. Tito Republicans also will ho in
clined to discussion iu order, as some of
them say, to give tho President better
ground to stand upon in his expected veto.
