AN UNWARRANTED DISCRIMINA
TION. We aro pleased to observe on the part
of tbo Illinois Press Association, a dis
position manifested to demand from tho
law-making power of Illinois abeflttlnB
recognition of tbe claims of the prow.
Tho existing laws, regulating tho prices
for tbe publication of tax sale notices,
estrny notices, etc., are an Insult to every
Intelligent publisher in tho State. Tno
amouutn named as adequate compensa
tion for such publications are, simply, In
sulting. They scarcely repay the cost of
tho composition; butto arguo wlthsomo
peoplo tho contrary, is to lose time and
waste breath. "Tho law allows ,so much
aud they'll pay no more."
Wo hold it to bo a gross assumption of
authority on the part of the legislature to
touch this matter at all. Printing Is a
legitimate, respectable, and should be,
an untrammelled and unrestricted oc
cupation. Tho legislature has no more
right to say whaUhe prices of tho prin
ter or publisher shall be, than it haH to
regulate tho wages of carpenters and
blacksmiths, or to fix the pi ices to be
charged by merchants and physicians
save only when tho patronage Is directly
under its control, as In tho case of pub
lishing public laws. No reasonable,
rational discrimination against the pub
lisher can bo made; aud the representa
tives of the press owe it to themselves,
to the dignity of their calling to resent
every attempt In that direction, as un
warrantable and insulting. The laborer
can fix a prico upon his labor; tho grocer
upon his goods; but tho publisher a if
he were a scoundrel, from whose extor
tions tho public required protection; or
an idiot who kuuw nothing about his own
business is told by an "itmnonsely
wise" legislature that for certain services
rendered his neighbor or patron he can
collect so much and no more!
Isn't It about time for tho editorial fra
ternity todemund "equal rights" in this
regard to teach our law-makers that, al
though wo aro merely editors and pub
lishers, we have rights that they must
aud shall respect? Wo think so, aud
therefore receive with sincere satisfac
tion tho Intimations already thrown out
that this mutter will receive at tho hands
of the Press Association the action its

The olevator of which mention is made
is proprlotored by Messrs. Buckingham,

most prominent grain operators In tho

demonstrated thnt our merchants can

UNIONISM THAT DOESN'T PAY.
Tho President nominated Colonel
Crowe, an ox-robel, for the Governorship
of Now Moxico, and tho radical senate
continued him, to supersede tho present
governor, Col. Mitchell, who was a union
ofllcerand did gallant sorvice.
Governor Mitchell hus undoubtedly ,
ascertained that unionism In his case
doesn't pay. This sanio rebel Crowo
gave him and his little command a
whipping in Missouri durlug tho war,

him out of a cozy office.
