OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL.
Nothing Done— Unparlimentary
From our Regular Correspondent.
The best half of this week has been con
turned, or worse, wasted in a fruitless
wrangle between the Free Traders and
protectionists. There has been much fllli
buslering, and a development of bad feel
ing between the two parties, and even be
tween Individual members of ibe same par
ty. The contending factions were led res
pectively by Messrs. Ulackbum and Gar
field. The deadlock was broken 011 Thurs
day by a sort of compromise, which will
enable both the beligeianls lo claim a vict
ory, butwlncb to the wubiaaed looker on,
seems simply a drawn battle. The pro
tectiunists and Free Traders, as wbs shown
by a test vote, do not divide on party lines.
Discussion has been silenced for this ses
sion, but it will doubtless be a burning
question in the future. . The House, as at
present constituted, is a protection House.
The name may be suid of the .Senate. The
speaker of the House is a high tariff tnuti.
But how will it be in two years, when a
new caucus has given the West an over
whelming prepoliderence in the National
During the controversy in the House over
Mr. Tounshends Tariff bill, Speaker Kau
dall has been the receipunt of many Un
complimentary critisiiu by his free trade
Democratic colleagues. Notubly among
those who denounced him was Mr. Black
burn, of Kentucky. During Wednesday's
night session, while Mr. Blackburn was de
nouncing the Speaker, and declaring hima
traitor to the Democratic party, which
would be benefited by Randall's removal,
bag aud baggage to the Republican party,
he was confronted by Mr. Coffroth, of Pen
sylvania who defended his oolleague and
declared that the language of Mr. Black.
burn would justify hi 111 (Ooffroth) in strik
ing him. Blackburn much, enraged, said:
"Well, you have heard what I have' said,
and if you mean to say it is not true, you
are a liar." Bystanders prevented a colis
ion and as Mr. Coffroth moved away he said
to Blackburn: "There is one charge you
cannot im) art to him. He never betrayed
his country." 1
The long debate la congress over the
election laws, has ended more satisfactorily
than seemed possible a year ago. The de
cision of the Supreme court has had much
to do with settling the question. The
Democrats in the House have now passed
an amendment to the law, giving the ap
pointment of these deputies to the United
Slates circuit judges, and providing that,
instead of being ail ot one political rarty,
ther shall be selected In equal numoers
from both parties, and shall be persons of
i;ood moral character, and well known res
ident s of the voting precinct in which
their duties are to be performed. There is
some talk of this -being opposed by the
Republicans in the Senate, as it was op
posed by some of the Republicans in the
House, on the ground that it is a rider to
the appropriation bill, but the President,
it is announced, vary positively, will ap
prove it if passed.
The present Commisioner of patents, like
all his predecessors, has handed in his res
ignation, after a very brief term of office,
lie expect like, all the oomiuisiunera
who have gone before him, to go into the
Eractlce of patent law. His resignation is
ailed with delight by the employes ot the
patent office, as well as by inventors and
their attorneys. Many new and confusing
changes have been introduced in the rules
and practice during his incumbency and it
is predicted that bis successor will have a
great deal to undo.
Washington D. C. Mar. 27.
Discussion of the Bill.
Tntt Local Option Bill was called up
in the House of Assembly on Wednesday
last, aad a rather lively discussion entered
into. As a means of enlightening the peo
ple at to the posture of the subject before
the popular branch, we give in full, the
drift of the discussion at the opening, using
the dispatches of the Leader. The bill pro
vides that the question of local option be
submitted to townships, oounties, Villages,
cities or wards on the application of thirty
citizens, aud punishes the violatipn of the
law as a roisdemeaner, finable in not less
than twenty, nor more than fifty dollars,
or by imprisonment not to exceed sixty
days, or both. It makes the furnishing
of prescriptions tor liquor by physicians to
persons not sick a rnisderaeauer finable in
not to exceed one hundred dollars for each
offense; and provides that when local op
tion has been adopted by a majority vote
in any place it shall remain unchanged for
three years. 1
The lobby was filled with spectators.and
seats for visitors were occupied by ladies.
The fact of its geuerrl interest, and that of
its oue hundred aud fifty thousand peti
tioners for its passage, made it especially
interesting. All the members (or a time
dropped their papers aud attended to the
business of the hour.
As soon as the bill came np, Mr. Cole,
Republican, moved that it be referred to
the Committee on Judiciary.
Mr. Thorp raised the poiut of order that
this motion oould not hold, as the bill bad
not been read.
The bill was then read.
Mr. Cole renewed his motion.
Mr. Bloom moved to amend Cole's mo
tion so that the committee be required to
report next Monday. The Speaker declar
ed this motion our of order.
Mr. Thorn wanted the House to under
stand that Mr. Cole's motion was intended
to kill the bill, and those who voted for it
voled against the bill.
.Mr. (Jole said he did not oppose local op
lion, but there was doubt as to its con
slilutlonalily, and he thought that Thorp's
actions were doing more than those of any
ulher lo kill the bill. He objected to local
option if it was not constitutional, and if
so, he would oppose it.
-Mr. King here got the floor, and In mild
tone advocated the passage of bis measure,
snyins that there was uo doubt but that
the bill should pass at once, and that with
out thin reference.
.Mr. .Marsh, Democrat, opposed the refer
ence, saying that it was merely a scheme
to put (ill' the passage of the bill and 10
keep up the political reputation of the Re
publican party. He said that the Demo
crat hud shown how they stood on this
question. They were against It. He did
not want to see them skulk behind the
bu.h and disregard the petitions of 1110,000
citizens of the Slate. lie thought it was
only due to these people that the Legisla
ture should say what they would do. A
for him, he would vote aguinst it. But it
wus only due to these petitioners that the
bill should be passed upon.
M r. Bloom said that he understood that
the House was going to adjourn next Sat
urday, or at furthrest a week from thence.
Ho saw in this a move to refuse to pass
upon the bill, and to this heaa a member
ol the Committee on Temperance decided
ly objected. He then demanded that the
Republican party as the Simon pure tem
perance party should pass upon the bill,
Here he went on to say that the Republi
can party had made this an issue in the
Mr. Ebright held: Is the gentleman to
little of a politician as to say that the tem
perance question was the issue of the past
Mr. Bloom, walked down the aisle to
ward him and raising his bands, MI say
they did make it an issue in the campaign,
umf brought it on the stump."
Mr. Ebright. Does not the gentleman
know that it was the dirtiness of the
O'Connor Legislature that defeated your
party last fall
Mr. UliHim replied to this with warmth,
exulting the past Assembly and denounc
ing the present, saying that he wanted the
Republicans to put themselves oa record
una to lie as brave as their predecessors.
Mr. Covert wanted to know if the gen
tleman wanted this bill to pass or merely
wanted the Republicans put upon record.
This was followed by a laugh, and Mr.
Bloom went on to speak npon the constitu
tionality of the law.
Dr. Greene wanted to know how the
Democrats stood on this question.
Mr. Bloom said that the Democrats
were not in favor of taking from the Ger
man his Beer, or the old woman her cof
fee. But be objected to the Republicans
sending this bill to the Judiciary Commit
tee, where it would sleep the sleep of
death and where it would sot rise up to
trouble the party in the coming Presiden
Dr. Greene wanted to know whether a
distinguished member of the Democratic
party had not said on this floor that the
Democratic party was the whisky party?
Mr Bloom. I do not know of any such
gentlemen, but we are called the whisky
party. The Republicans went before the
people lust year as a temperance party and
were elected as such. He wanted them
now to show themselves as tuch.
Amid hisses, Mr. Thorp moved the pre
vious question, which was put and result

In fovor of the bill.
Mr. Cole, Republican, took the floor and
made a carefully prepared speech on the
constitutionality of the bill, saying that it
should be carefully dealt with or It n ight
cause endless and .unnecessary litiga
tion. After some further speeches the question
