Ir Fkanklin were alive he could add
to his maxims what we know to be a
truism, that "wherever there is money in
sight there is somebody to "go for it.' In
the building of the Cook county court
house we have the exemplification. The
Cook county commissioners met, a lew days
ago, to examine bids for the work. The
board accepted P. J. Sexton's bid of $09,
147 for tho carpenterj', although Charles
Cumming'8 bid for the same work was only
$30,000. It accepted P. J. Sexton's bid of
$01,403 tor the f re proofing, although W. M.
Anderson's bid was only $33,000. It gave
the plastering to Thomas O'Brien and son
at $34,847, although W. M. Anderson of
fered to do it for $31,903. Davis & Co
were awarded the steam-htting at $32,093,
although I. J. Pope & Co. offered to perform
the work at $27,825. Here then, in these
four instances, the commissioners gave as a
simple gratuity to contractors, the enor
mous sum of $70,215,28. It is an exceed
ingly innocent soul that believes there is
nothing under the surface.
Since the President, backed by tLe
Chandlers of the Senate, is determined not
to surrender the right to squander tens of
thousands of dollars in paying the short
haired strikers and bummers of the cellars
and slums of New York, Philadelphia and
other localities, for rendering our elections
a farce, we shall see how his shoulder-hitters
and dead-rabbits will get along with
out money. There is not an honest, candid
Republican in New York or Philadelphia,
who does not regard the appointment ot
hundreds and thousands of deputy mar
shals to run the elections of those cities, in
the interest of a party, as a grand outrage.
George W. Childs has denounced the prac
tice in unmeasured terms, and called for a
modification of the law, under which such
extreme proceedings are possible. If,
now, Mr. Davenport's blear-eyed, short
haired bullies again corral 8,000 or 10,000
voters with no other view than to keep
them from voting the Democratic ticket,
they'll do their corralling at their own
proper expense, and not at the expense ot
Thk New York Herald has, uniformly,
been a staunch supporter of Republican
measures; but the conduct of that party's
representatives during the session of Con
gress that has just adjourned, raises its
gorge. It says: "In the last six months
the Republicans in congress have pertinac
iously struggled to put the country back
four years. This has been the single and
clearly conceived object of a series of op
erations which they have enrried ou with
a remarkable industry, audacity and inge
nuity. No party in this country, not even the
Democratic party in 1858-9, was ever more
contemptuous toward its opponents, or
more fekiltui in attacking their weak points
and covering its own. No party ever
showed a keener alarm at any proposition
for reform, or presented a more solid and
audacious front against every tiling which
looked to wholesome lerialu'tion for th
legitimate interests of the country. No
party in its decadence, enervated and cor
rupted ty too long poses&ion of power,
cr ujuiu Tijjuiuumjf luugiii uacK new
issues and real questions, or more encrget-1
ically or persistently brought back debute
to old and dead issues." And this is undo
nialle. Id U the speeches made
bj the leading Republicans of
either boui?, the questions of real, vital
interest to tho country, were studiously ig
nored, and the battles of fifteen years ago
lought over again w ith all tho venom of
hute-inspired natures. The Chandlers and
Conklings aro determined that tho ques
tions that were settled by the war, shall not
drop out of the arena of politics. They
are determined that the hates of the two
sections shall be kept alive, and that, while
they can prevent it, peace and good will
shall gain no foot hold among our people.
This purposo is palpablo to everybody, and
upon its success depends tho continued ex
istence of the Republican party. Turmoil,
hate and confusion are the bread of life to
the Republicanism of the hour; a com
pletely reconciled people, good will and
mutual respect and confidence? are its bane,
and would speedily work its complete and
The very able and venerable Worcester
Spy the most influential Republican jour
nal in the State of Massachusetts, thus lec
tures the element in the late congress. The
rebuke administered is a stinging one; but
where is the honest man who will not say
that it is deserved. The Spy 6ays:
"Like superanuated warriors, the Repub
licans in congress are determined to live on
the recollection of their past services; they
demand authority, power, the confidence,
and support of the voters, as wornout sol
diers demand a pension, not for what they
can do or will do, but for what they have
done in the past.
And yet it is doubtful whether any party
leaders ever had a greater opportunity to
benefit at the same time themselves and
their country than the Republicans in con
gress have had and flung away since last
December. Before them stood the Demo
cratic party, divided on vital points of pol
icy and ready to split apart if only the dis
senting members could find somewhere else
to rest. Nearly a third ot the Southern
d istricts were either lost to the Democrats
or held by so slight a tenure that a change
of five hundred votes would have
defeated the Democratic candidates.
There was no loncer a solid
South, for aside from the slender ma
jorities and pluralities ha'.f the Southern
members, and the ablest and most mnuen
rial half, came to Washington deeply dis
satisSed with the Democratic programme,
There was no longer a Solid South but
congress had no sooner assembled than the
Republicans in congress unuertoo.t to make
it once more soudlv Democratic, and to
that end they have devoted literally almost
every dav of the protracted session. To
this purely mischievous result, in order
that that they might keep the country in
alarm with the spectre of a solid South,
they have unceasingly appealed to the
worst passions and used tae basest arts.
