LOGAN'S Alt 31 y hill.
It is alleged that Gen. Logan's army
bill, now before the CouKrettsloQitl Housu
of Kepresentatlves, If pasted, will dis
pose of about four hundred nfllccre not
needed la our psace -establishment, und
there Is considerable opposition to It
among army officers on this account. It
Is claimed that this featute is unjust, as
the understanding has always been that
army positions are for lift or good be
havior. The adoption of the bill, will
bo.a. virtual revolution oftlle. policy of
tut). Government on this subject. It
would remit in n saving to the Govern
meut annually, of about il,000,Wu.
c . Rather a candid .confusion t upon the
part of tlio 'Journal, ' that a stop In the
direction of economy, the lopping ofT of
useless and expensive government ap
pendagesIs a "virtual revolution of the
policy of the administration." IWe
agree with the 'Journal' entirely hi this.
ENCOUHAOMENV TO MANUFAO
The I'aducah papers Imploro the au
thorities of their town to Imitate Cairo In
the matter of giving ground to parties
who may erect manufacturing establish
Tho 'Kcutuckiau' discussing tliu mat
Wo know of one Instance where a
man wanted to start a stove foundry
here, but was driven away by tho high
price of property. He perhaps went to
Cairo, where ho could get It for nothing.
Our plan Is this: Let every man who
owns unimproved property give the
Mayor a list of that part of which he Is
willing to donate for the purpose. Let
there be acommlttee, consisting of the
Mayor and an equal number of council
men and citizens, keep a list of all tho
property ottered nnd correspond with
parties desiring to locate here. Our public-spirited
Mayor has consented to
bring the matter beforo the City Coun
cil, and suggest to its members the no
ccaaity of taking somo action In the.
premises. They will of couou meet the
matter In the same spirit, and some feas
ible plan be fixed upon.
The 'KootucklauV sugestlnu is a good
one, and a liberal respouse on part of the
citizens will nava the ctfect of greatly
enlarging the city's manufacturing In
terests. The oiler made by the City Property
Trustees and city authorities of Cairo to
donate land or town lots to parties who
embark In mat.ufacturlug business here,
Is not yet very widely known; but wo
have every as urauce that tho wisdom
of the policy w ill soon manifest Itself in
the uprise of such manufactories as the
advantages and want of the country
may authorize. .
TOADYING PEINCK AliTJIUE.
Tho New York .HemldV yery com
placently says that the Prince "has be
haved well, very well," during his ylilt
of a week to that city. After thus pa
tronizingly slapping IL Jt. IL on the
back, and tolling him what n good lxy
ho has beon, It assumes actually to ox
press the opinion of that youug gentle
man of New York society, which the
Herald' coolly compares to tho best of
'London society. The way In which, tho
world is told thut tho New Yorkers care'
nothing "fbrTrlnces as Princes," af(er'
tho amount' of ostentatious toadyism und
being run after 11. IL Hi has patiently
endured daring the pasfweek, is do
llciously brazen. Tho 'Herald' actually
pretends that It was on account of tho
young gentleman's' being such a ulco
person that ho was received so hand
somely, and not at all because ho was
a Prince. Hah! Bitch bunenmbo and
twaddlo deceive no one. If tho true
opinion of tho Prlnco could bo learned
after his exporiuco in Washington the
abject tagging for Hoke Is to the bull
given him, and tho wuy In which ho
has been rushed nftor In New York; It
couhhbe summed up thus: "Some of
these people are rather nice, but the ma
jority of them aro a cheeky, beastly lot
of snobs and upstarts, Elphluatono."
And he would not bo mistaken.
The American people are especially
proue to make asses of thejuselvesj

on Monday, ou the resolutions oilered by
Hou. S. H. Munhul), of Illinois, and the
result confirms what wo asserted ut tho
beginning of tho session that no reform
of the present tarltl' is to be looked for
from the present Cougress. Mr. Marsh
all's resolutions asserted substantially
that tho Federal government has no cm a
stltutlonal power to levy and collect tax
es for any other purpose than those of
revenue; that a tarltl levied for the pur
pose of fosterlnganu enricning one sec-1
tioji or one class a) tfiu expense of other

But thu resolutions wore laid on the

etgh'ty-ulne ayes to soventy-soven noes
Tjie' majority voted Ip favor of enriching
one section of tho county and one class
of citizens at the expenso of others, and
tho minority voted against that policy.
An analysis of tho voto shows that
every Democratic vote is against laying
tho resolutions on tbo table, or In other
words In favor of the sound aad Just
truths which they assert. Twenty-six
Republicans voted the samo way all
from Western Hta.cs, with tbo exception
of two from Tennesseo and two from
North Carolina. Not one Eastern 'Re
publican's namo tis found on this side;
every man of them voted to Jay tho res
olution on tho table that Is for protect
ion. Five Illinois Republicans. Burchard.
Cullom, Hay, Ingersoll and Judd, voted
against laying ou tho table, and so did
soveu Indiana Republicans. The carpet
baggors from South Carolina, Alabama,
Arkansas and nearly all those 'from
Tennessee, voted with tho Eastern pro-
i toctionisis siiowiok now iiuio reararu
they have for their constituents, and
now mucu for tuo constituents or otner
Clearly, then, tho Republican majority
do not even meditate such a thins; 'as n
reform of tho tariff, and do not Intend
that tho pcoplo shall have tho slightest
relief from the harsh exactions of tho
present'tarlff. They may pass the bill
lately reported to the House from the
ways and means committee; but they
wlll.do so simply because It Is snore gen

unjust to the people at large i than., tho
