THE NEEDS OF COMMERCE.
That nothing could be more falsely
pernicious and suicidal to the best
interests oi uy country than to ham
per or hi; er its commerce has re
peatedly been proven by the history
of the ri.e and fall of nations
oince nations first began to exist.
The history cf Atheus, Greece, Home,
Egypt, and, in fact, all civilized
peoples may be cited as instances.
During the days of their progress and
advancement every facility and en
couragement "was extended to their
commercial interests even to the
largest and most liberal government
aid, pecuniary and by franchise.
"While their decade note3 from the
moment these liberal principles were
supplanted by selfish ains and indi
Tidual aggrandizrnenf, it is perhaps
an unwriten but assuredly an irrevo
cable law higher than any law man
can divise that all nations were
not intended by nature, nor are they
fitted by their physical circumstances,
to excel in the same branches of in
dustry ; and it is variety in the pro
duction which they can severally
bring to maturity which at once im
poses the necessity for and occasions
the profits of commercial intercourse.
Nothing, therefore, can be so unwise
as to attempt, either by arbitrary
regulations to create a branch of in
dustry in a country for which it is
not intended by nature, or to con
fine any country to industries created
by forced prohibitions. Banish all
lestrictions, therefore, from com
merce ; let every nation apply itself
to that particular branch of industry
for which it is adapted by nature and
Teceivein exchange the produce of
other countries, raised, in like manner,
in conformity with their natural capa
bilities. Then will the industry o1
each people be turned into the channel
most advantageous and lucrative to it.
self ; each will enjoy the immense ad
vantage of purchasing the commodi

ble rate; hopeless or absurd hotbed
attempts to iorce extraneous industry
will cease, and in the mutual inter
change of the surplus produce of each
the foundation will be laid of an ad
vantageous and durable commercial
intercourse. All nations will thus be
enriched and a vast commercial traffic
grow up, which being founded on
mutual interest and attended with
mutual advantage, may be expected to
be durable and to extinguish, in the
end, the rivalry of seperated peoples
and the jealously of their several
Br Troth, of Perth, Scotland, re
cently delivered a lecture in which he
advanced some singular propositions :
"The drinking of alcoholic beverages
5s a necessary evil, and it is not like
ly ever to be discontinued. It is
like cholera, the plague, or war one
f the wise dispensations of providence
for preventing an undue increase of
mankind. It prevents the accumu

nation in the hands of a few. By its
means the son scatters the savings
of his father's lifetime in a few months,
enabling another man to fill his posi
tion, creates a class of drunken trades
men to neglect their business, so that
energetic men may succeed where
they fail. In short, it benefits direct
ly everybody but those who drink it,
and if they are fools enough to sacri
fice themselves and their families for
the good of the sober and industrious,
why should we interfere with them?
If these suggestions could be read by
a certain sort of men they might be
come temperate. Moral suasion may
fail. It remains, then, to say in a
philosophic spirit, "go ahead : drink
yourselves to death ; there are pea.

tial nomination. This odoriferous
bloom has nothing upon which to
base its claims beyond its hardihood,
cheek and checks, yet it is established
among the great political gathering
and through its New Yrork hired par
tisans making much fus3 and flurry ;
but among the delegations from other
states it is a flower that is never mentioned.
It is announced that to-morrow con
gress will adjourn and its members
return home. Doubtless this will be
good news to the majority of the peo
ple. But in this congressional dis
trict it is quite probable there are
some who would have preferred not
to face Mr. Cosgrove until after the
state convention, and this announce
ment will have a dampening effect
upon their spirits.
It now begins to look a3 if Mr. Lo

assertion by stating that he did not
attempt to enter them.

and Declares His Cul
A Scene of Wrangle and Riot
Characterizes the Clos
Both the Houses Wrangle
Through Bills in Order
Washington, July 5. Shortly after the
senate was called to order Senator Logan
arose and said :
"Mr. President, I deem it due my friends
that I call attention to certain statements
I find copied in the public press as well as
in the congressional record of the 27th of
First, I am set down on the list as what
is termed a "land grabber," as having in
some mysterious way accumulated the vast
amount of 80,000 acres of land.
This statement is utterly without founda
tion in fact. The New York Herald of the
29th, adds, thirty thousand head of cattle.
I wish that were true, but there is no foun
dation for the statements. I would take
no notice of this, however, were it not for
the charge that follows.
Second The person who made the state
ment, after fiuding it was untrue, instead
of doing justice to me, against whom he
might, by his erroneous statements, have
done an injury, he proceeded to put an
other false statement on record, as follows :
'I might have said to the deluded sol
diers of this land, cWhat do you think of a
great senator who, in his greed to absorb
territory which belongs to the actual set
tlers, in land that was made for indepen
dent freeholders and small farmers ? What
do you think of a man who poses as a
statesman and patriot ; as a friend par ex
cellence of the soldier, and who, under
cover of his brother, went into New Mex
ico and tried to pre-empt the most val
uable tracts of land lying along her
streams and was only stopped by a public
officer finding out it belonged to the gov
ernment and to the class which he pro
fesses the utmost friendship for, and who,
from his manner and appearance, rumor
says has their blood in his viens. He
tried to steal from his own kith and kin
hundreds of thousands of acrea of lands.
Great laughter and applause on democrat
ic side. Taking from the unfortunate Sav
age,who was unable to protect himself,until
an honest secretary of the interior went
there with a surveyor and took back the
land for the Zeunis. Kenewed laughter
Now, Mr. President, this statement is, so
far as 1 am concerned, or any one else of
whom I have any knowledge, maliciously
Sir, what are the facts out of which this
attack has been made.
"Captain Lawton, Major Tucker and Mr.
Stout located claims at Newtria Springs
and lands adjacent in New Mexico, not
however until after ascertaining from the
general land office that the land was sub
ject to location, being outside of the Indian
reservation, and some five miles from the
Indian line and some twenty-five or thirty
miles from the town of Zeuni, so it will be
seen that the hundred thousand acres of
land this man says that I was stealing
from the Indians resolves itself into three
homesteads on desert act claims, located by
two army officers and one citizen, on pub
lic land open to &uch entry, with which lo
cation, however, I had nothing to do.
In order to prove the statements he had
made he read a number of letters. The
first was a letter from the commander gen
eral of the land office, showing the land in
question was subject to location and entry
as public land at the time and if not locat
ed would have been subject to cancellation.
The next letter was from Major Tucker to
Secretary Teller, giving the facts in connec
tion with the location of the lands men
tioned by him and his associates and pro
testing against any change by are-surveyof
the Zuni reservation. He says the charges
against Senator Logan in connection with
these lands are untrue. The next letter
was from Capt. Lawton to Gen. Logan, and
refutes at great length, the charges against
the latter, and says there is not nor has
there been any company or organization
for the purpose of buying or owning land,
or raising stock, or securing a ranche on
the Nutria in which you or any other per
son is or was interested My land on the
Nutria was entered in good faith for my
self and no other person has any
interest in my locations. Any and all
statements that there was a combination
either to secure land or start a ranch for
your benefit or for the benefit of any person
other than those appearing on the record
of the land office is untrue.
Jas. S. Stevenson, of the United States
geological survey, bears the following tes
timony in a letter to Gen. Logan :
"Having had my attention called
to the statements in the Congres
sional Record, of a recent date,
indirectly charging you with fraudulently
attempting to deprive the Zuni Indians
of New Mexico of their lands, I beg to say
I am familiar with the facts and circum
stances, from a thorough investigation
of the subject made at the request of the
honorable secretary of the interior, and
take pleasure in stating that the allega
tions there made are grossly unjust to you,
as well as to Major Tucker and his asso
ciates, and wholly without foundation."
The next letter is from Secretary Teller
to Gen. Logan, in which he says : "There
is not the slightest evidence that any wrong
was intended or done by the parties to the
entries or any law violated. The land was
public land at the time entries were made
and as such was open to entry by the pub
lic The gentlemen who made the entries
were qualified to enter such lands and had.
a perfect right to do so and they neither
violated the law nor rights of any parties
whatever in so doing I asked the execu
tive order extending the reservation with
out understanding all the facts at the time
It gives me pleasure to make this state
ment in view of the allegations to the con
trary which have been made. When Maj.
Tucker and his associates were attacked
through the newspapers with Gen. Logan,
and charged with interfering
with the rights of Indian?,
and doing a great wrong. I denied in my
letter through the public press and other
wise, having violated any law, or having
committed any fraud on the Indians or
any one else. In that defense I asked the
question : If a soldier like Capt Lawson
could not locate a homestead, or pre-emption,
or whatever location was within the
law? What distance he had to an
Indian reservation ? How many
miles a soldier would have to go
away from the reservation in order to
comply with the law. This I did in their
behalf. I now stand by what I did then ;
if this be crime or fraud my enemies can
make the most of it. These men are all
honorable men. Captain Lawton was a
gallant soldier from Indiana ; he served all
through the war with great credit to him
self and honor to the country. Major
Tucker is my son-in-law and he is a gal
lant soldier aud a man who would not
wrong anyone. I presume the wrong in
me is that Major Tucker is a part
of my family, and although
he is innocent of any wrong in the
premises, a baseless excuse was made to
assail me through him. If their object
was to draw me into his defenee they have
succeeded and when any one thinks I have
not manhood enough to defend openly my
relative or friend, when wrongfully assail
ed, he mistakes me. This, sir, is fully my
answer to this false, unprovoked and ma
licious slander, which I place on record
where all may have access to it if desired.
Senator Miller's motion was agreed to
and the bill goes over accordingly.
Senator Logan submitted a report of the

Senator Allison presented a conference re

all except three points, the most important
being the one relating to a reduction of the
internal revenue and custom collectors.
The senate further insisted on the remain
ing amendments and ordered a new confer
ence. The question recurring on the interstate
commerce bill, Senator Miller, of New
York, moved to postpone it until Decem
ber next, stating that while he fully sympa
thized with the purposes of the bill it was
manifest it was one of the most important
measures of the session and could not be
properly discussed in the limited lime now
at the disposal of the senate.
The senate insisted on its amendments to
the consular and diplomatic bill and or
dered a new conference. Senator Hoar an

no possible or hope of an agreement.
Senator Allison submitted a conference
report on the legislative, executive andju
