C. B. Farwel, lliu representative In
congrefs from tho Chicago district, write",
under dutu of Jan. 1 1, to th e Timts of that
city, tlmt the committee of wnysiind nienni
of tho house, have promised curly and
favorable iicllon on tho Lift io rcmovo
duties on building materials brought Into
Chicago. This is a re-enactment of what
it known as the Portland bill of 18GG and
will bo a measure of great relief to Chica
go, as It was to Portland. Mr. Farwoi
tnys he has no doubt but that the bill will
pats at an early day.
The telfgraphio reports indicate that
serious complications arc likely to arise
out of the ttopplng and searching of the
Florida by the Spanish men of war. Full
details have been received at thu navy de
partment anil create profound excitement
AVe hope tho excitement will lead to some
thing practical, war with Spain, If neei-f-lary.
Indeed, we think that n brush with
the Dons will do us good, do the Spaniards
good to be well thrashed nnd do belter for
this country, than in alt things else, by
securing tho annexation of Cuba.
Senator Sumner is getting his batter-
Scs re.idy for another charge, upon th
administration. If thu amnesty bill is
called up to-day in tho senate, hu will pro
pose tut civil rights bill as nn amendment
nnd advocate its adoption In n thrco hours
speech. It is intimated that ho will assail
tho president and chnrco him with prefer
ring amnesty ff r rebels, liofo.-o equal rights
for negroes. Grant tcld n colored delepn
tion, last week, that ho preferred tho am
nesty bill should go through on its own
merits, and not be nmcndcdin tho manner
proposed.
Ivotunv i iradniK to whether supervi

perform its legitimato functions or to in

attempting to drngoon inemers Into the

Because Munn und Logim nro supposed

VUiif wore hive started tho s.ory that
tho senator is about to take s!dc again
with Grant; that ho intends, at nn early
da)-, to deliver a speech advocating Grunt's
re-election. Wo do not boliovo ono word
of it, or that Logan is such n fool as to fa
vor Grant, nl'tor having been snubbed ns
he has been by him. No has not got over
tho smnrting of 'ho wound occasioned by
Grunt's interferenco with his re-election
as commander of the grand ntmy of tho

The mook-tl ijucitloti f i woman's right
tosurtrnge, fuund'un imwer tho otlierday
by JudgefiJineson of Clilengo. Mrs.
V. Walto,"of that city, brought an ncllon
against the Judges of election who refused
lior voto lat Novomiter, Mrs. Walte's
counsel made tho point, thM sufl'rago Is
n natural rlght,undor tlio constitution of
tho United States, the constitution of Illi
nois, the declaration of Independence, tho
XlVth and XVth nmcndinonti nnd the
decalogue. Judge Jameson denied tho llrst
proposition, holding that tho right to voto
was not a natural but an acquired one, by
consent of those who Lavo tho power to
give or withhold. On tho second pol"t he
declares thnt to quote the authorities al
luded tons favorablo to tho women Is to
e;ivo currency to tho foolish lierey that a
law, general in its terms, but admitted to
express only a particular Intention of tho
lawmaker, can by construction bo mado to
enact, what it Is ndmittcdho did not in
tend. Even admitting that there Is n con
stitutional provision giving her tho right
to vote, there is no stntuto enabling her to
cast her ballot, sinco constitutional
provisions do not enforoe themselves.
Hut thojudgo gallantly comesj forward
to soothe tho persistent Mm. AW by ad
ilmp: " Upon (ho policy of so amending
our laws as to permit women to vole, I
shall only obcrvo thnt, on principle, I
seo no ground for refusing to do so when-
ever n goncrnl demand for tho suffrage Is I
mado by women themselves. Thoy form
a distinct class of porsons, hnvmu pecu
liar rights and interests, of which they
might ho tho best guardmnf, if they w. uld
n'sumo tlio moor nnu responsibility oi
thatoflieo. Be this us it may, ono tiling
ccms to mo clear, that if women nro to en
ter tho capitol with n view to seat them
selves by the lido of tho conscript futhcri.
as legislators nnd administrators, they
ought to wait until they can effect their
entrance there, legally nnd directly, by the
door."
This decision, to say tho hast, is more
liberal than bus heretofore been accorded
tho women by previous judges and will do
moro to advance their cause, than all the
lectures and speoehes that have been de
livered for them bv their advocates.
EXECUTIVE 1'ATItONAOE.
Tho Now York Tribune has recently
been reviving tho sayings of the fathers
in relation to tho necessity of with
holding patronagn from high officials, lc3t
thoy tiso it to corrupt those
under them and thus establish
themselves in permanent power. It cites
Mr. Jefferson's circular on this subject,
enjoining federal office-holders frum
inning an acuvo pari in pnriv politics, es-
ppolnllyin tho suleetion nf nnrtj candi
dates, should they thcmsclvos bo ambitious
of a re-nominatiun. Theso have alwavs
been regarded by rigbl-thlnkltig men as
found in principle nnd policv, and not
until tho avowal of that unprincipled and
barbarian motto "to tho victurs belong
tho spoils" were thoy in practieo de
parted from. Daniel AS'ebsterin his great
speech, delivered in tiio United Stales
senato in 1 805, assorted the same doctrine.
And generally, our greulest statosmen
havo re-Iterated and endorsed it. If such
denunciation of tho concentration of pat-
ronago was right in tho years gone bv,
what epithets of scathing Indignation
should tho present corruption und misuse
of power in executive offices evoke? At
Washington tho executive power has been
multiplied a hundred fold tinco AVebstor
declaration that " lie who controls n man's
living, controls his will," and wished for
that reason to stay tho furthor contagion
of tho pluguo which had broken out, with
such disastrous effect in tho whlto liousi.
But the powers of tho president as to the
wliolo people of tho union, uro limited in
deed, as compared with the carpel-bag
governors of several of tho reconstructed
southern "lutes. Tho authority and pat
ronngo with which radical Ingenuity has
hedged nbout tho gubernatorial office, have
led to tho mint disu'tious consequences in
South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas
and Louisiana. Thu power bctowrd
for party eml has been used to burden
tho people, and at the tamo time to de
prive them of the ability of successful re
sistance. It furnlriics temptations and
leads to complications. It gathers around
the executive office tho vcnul and the
sycophantic, who havo boenmo at once
tho Juro to corruption nnd its foil. Suci
power is unsafe, no nvitter who wields it.
It Is in couionuneo with noither republi
can principles nor traditions, and slu.u'd
wiped out with as little delav ns posi.
bl from tlio statute-books of every Amer
ican k,t

SCHITRZ AND HIS TRADUCERS.
THE AMNESTY BILL. NEWMAN
AND GRANT.
(Correspondent of inn llullctln.)
Wi'iiiMitov, I). C, J.in. 9th, 1571.
Congress re-is-embled yesterday. Tlio
senate was not very full, while
the lioii'o was rpiilo slim, nnd
in consequence very liltlc business
of importance wus transacted. In
tho senate Senator Schurz replied to tho
administration organ, tho New York
Timts. Ho reviewed tlio charges in de
tail nnd clearly proved them to be a tissue
of falsehoods, nnd denounced tho paper as
bolng guilty of "shnmeles, intrepid nnd
'cumulative lying " and thought the ad
ministration very unlucky in having
such nn orgin.
the collar weaueks WINCE.
Tlio Grant collar wearers winced nt tho
tho plain language of the senator, for
when ho said Times it really meant tho
mnstor spirit Grant. Singular thnt
Grant should single out Jennings, tho
English editor of tlio Times, as his mouth
piece, n man whoso every breath, thought
or aspiration is un-American. The paper
is legally liablo for tho vllo slanders which
it publishes but Gen. U-ant is morally re
sponsible, tor if lie docs not personally dic
tate tlio article! thoy aro done in his inter
ests and have his sanction.
CALL OFF THE IIOOS.
Mr. Schurz meant that much nnd al
most said It. Tlio administration hud bet
tor call Off their llogi, im Clio Minrp, wlrv
and able Gnrman, nnd tho keen und sar
castic IlMnolnn Trumbull aided by tho
Nobrnskn slasher Tipton will prove too
much for Tray, Blanche nnd Sweotlicart,
which aro nov- burking nt their heels.
Tills not hoiiig our fight wo can afford to
give advice gratis. Tho resolutions of
lion. S. S. Cox recognizing n stato of war
in Cuba and oxtendint; belligerent rights
to tlio insurgents, will force General
Grant to show his hand on tho question,
and if lie lias broken nwny from under
Fish's thumb in tho matter wo shall soon
know whether tho friend of Spain Fish
will change front or go out of tho cab
inet. THE AMNESTY DILL.
The nmnosty bill has not been brought
upyct on nccount of tho absence of Sena
tor Robertson, who has it in charge, but It
can bo brought up at nny timo ns it kcops
its place. Sumner w.itchos it like n hawk
m ho Is determined to tack his " raco
mingling idoVon to it. His hobby of
mixing whites und blacks in tho nublic
schools Is commented on by seiisiblo ne
groes ns working them n great injury!
out sucn as I'rof. Lang,ton whoq family
aro cream-colored, and who dospiso ne
groes and will not associate with thorn, aro
pushing tho mingling of white nnd bheks
with great po-sistoncy News roceived hero
indicate the defeat of Brother
Harla.i, present sonator from Iown, for
re-election.
POPE NEWMAN
Pope Nowmun, pnstor of tlio Gran
church horn and chaplain of the sonato
will bo greatly chagrined at Brothor Har
bin's defeat among lih Methodist broth
eren in Iowa for re-election. But tlio
.Methodist clergy and layman wllb a proper
spirit or inucponuonco havo rebuked his
officious moddllns. The nuro and imm,,.
ulato Harlan will remain ut homo to ro
ilect over the injiidicinusncss of friends who
drug their church Into tho dirty ,iru ,l(
politics and its results. Tho ro-olection uf
Sonator Sherman of Ohio, to tho United
States sennto is conceded. Tlioro aro
enough radicals who would voto for any
conservative of their own party if tho
democrats would Join with thorn, but
