RICHARDSON & POWERS, Propibktobs.
M. W. PAKKBn, Business Manager
llaaiiy, October 31 188!
In a recent trade mark decision by tiie
commissioner of patents, that oflleer des
cribed, a trade mark as an arbitrary char
acter or characters without special mean
in;, adopted by persons, linns, or corpor
atiotis for the purpose of identifying the
goodi manufactured by them or of which
they have the sale. Persons have .the
right to adopt any device or form of words
possessing these characteristics as their
trade marks so loujr as public property is
not violated. In many cases, . the name
of a peison associated with a particular
trade or business carries with it the good
will of the establishment ' with which he
was connected. If it is the good will
simply that is sought, then it should not
be registered a3 a trade mark; but if the
immo of a person possessing the character
istics of a trade mark in itself, not an ap
plicant, is adopted by any person, linn or
corporation to identify their particular
goods, there is no good reason why it
may not be used as a trade mark and be
registered as such. On the contrary, there
may be many reasons why it may be so
U3d. The long use of the name of a par
ticular person with a particular class of
goods manufactured by that person or in
his name serves to identify those goods
as particularly as any other character, de
vice, or collection of words. This is all
that is required to make it a legal trade
It eau hardly be said that the view the
New York World takes of the subject is
not logical when it says: j.
"Should Mahone carry through his pol
icy of repudiation in Virginia what is there
to prevent his introducing as a senator a
proposition to "eliminate" (a word Judge
Noah Davis seemed to Ilk at the meeting
of Union League Club repudiators) one
third of the national debt, and to pay only
two-thirds of it? .Since President Arthur's
administration, supported by all the repub
lican seuators, industriously and proscrip
tively engages in supporting as a republi
can measure this proposition as applied to
the Virginia state debt, what reasons is
there to suppose that President Arthur and
the republican senators will refuse to back
up Mahone when he Insists, on applying
the proposition to the Federal debt? "VThy
should not white republicans who pay no
taxes in the North support Federal repudi
ation as strongly as colored republicans
who pay uo taxes in Virginia are support

Mr. Gladstone, in the course of his
al ply to the address prescated to Lim
Knowsley yesterday, said: "That point
was whether Ireland is able to he governed
by laws made by Parliament- or by laws
known to nobody and written nowhere ex
cept in the brains of a few persons and en
forced by an illegal arbitrary and self-ap
pointed association which sought to over-
! rid by organized attempts the free will of
Irishmen. It was a question between law
and chaos." No fewer than 30,000 appli
cation forms have been issued under the
j Land Act, he said, and this led him to an
ticipate future peace and prosperity. -

v - PLEA TOR THE HIP POCKET.
Eeitor op The Argcs. I do not
for I do hot believe, that the , legislators
who passed these laws were all, or any of
them, were personally in favor of disarm
ing the people, as a step towards restorat
ion of caste, I do ot think this hidden
toryism sufficiently wide spread at present
to stock the legislatures of a majority of
our 'states, with its conscious devotees,
but I do say that the sentiment among the
people the hidden power behind public
opinion which led to the enactment of
this law, was secretly inspired by the ' in
fluence of tory minds and flunkey hearts
as a means to an end, ana that end was
the ultimate disarming of the American
people, of course I shall be told that there
is nothing in this law against bearing firms
that the prohibition ia only of the conceal
ment thereof. Of course, no one would
be idiotic enough to suppose lesiutisiii
whether religious or political, would spoil
its plans by exposing them before the
time for full fruition. But sometime
there will be bills introduced into ur leg
lslatures, prohibiting the carrying of pistols
openly or in secret, and the quiescence of
the people under those laws will be cited
as a precedent in favor of the new ones
The same arguments advanced in favor of
these laws, will be equally valid in advan
cing those, indeed as we shall see further
on, the clause against concealment in the
present statutes, is only inserted to evade
that section of our JJajiw Cfturta which
declares that the right of every man to
boar arms, shall not be infringed. These
new laws will not be directed against
bearing arms as such, but against pistels
and small arms only. It will be urged that
the right to bear muskets will and shall
be intact, but the constitution says noth
ing in favor of Colts revolver and it will be
perfectly lawful to legislate against them.
Such a law will be passed at no very dis
tant day, if the present furare iu favor of
the most rigid enforcement of the present
laws to-day continued. And then
those men who own the elegant little
nickle plated denizens of the hip pocket
will be compelled to dispose of them al
together, or to keep them hid behind the
clock case or down celler, where no care
less eye may chance to see them. For the
right of owning an article implies the right
of carrying the same, and when the one is
abbrogated the other is rendered void.- Then
men will become more and more , unaccus
tomed to the use of firearms, for guns are
clumsy and costly, and many people can
not afford to procure them, and still fewer
would be able tt spenu tne time necessary
to become familiar with their use. Then
again, laws will be passed debarring the
people from forming societies and bearing
arms en tnastc. Later still a license law
will be passed proliibiting all persons from
bearing or possessing arms, w ho are not
able and willing to pay a license for so
doing a license at first ridiculously small
and insignificant. And lastly the license
will be increased until only persons of a
certain opulence will be able to afford the
luxury, and this by throwing all the fire
arms into the hands of the wealthy classes
will render the completion of the Toryistic
scheme as easy as rolling off a log, and the
grand programme of aristocratic restoration
will be complete.
This is the inevitable tendency or all
laws-against carrying concealed weapons,
and the fact seems so self-evident, the
person must be stupidly blind w ho does
not perceive it. Nevertheless there are
many who profess themselves quite unable
to believe there can be any harm in such a
law who can read nothing between the
lines. They pooh pooh the idea that any
one would try or would w ish to try to cur
tail the privileges of free-born American
citizens. .They seem to imagine that laws
are incapable cl jwssessing niciden
meanings, though in ambiguous
terms. Though the uncertainty of
legal processes is every day made more
glaringly evident. Ihey seem forgetful of
the fact that the evident spirit of the Con
stitution is violated in these laws, though
they may be literally constitutional, and
that where the spirit of a creed is outraged,
the outragws are scarcely liable to consci
entious scruples about the strict observance
of tlie letters or tlie same, l'erhaps tliese
persons would not be so very deserving of
repute had the laws against concealed
weapons been the only steps taken thus for
in this direction. But, though it is only a
very few years since these laws were first
passed, the quiscence of the people under
them has already led to the-agitation of
more advanced legislation. Already the
rights ot the people to near arms en maste
in civil societies, has been contested in the
courts, and eminent legal talentJias array
ed" Itself against the people. The arrest

pany leaders of Chicago, not many montiis
ago, though provoumg but little comment
throughout the land, was a very significant
straw, showing which way the current of
opinion was tending. And it may not
wholly have escaped the reader's memory,
that during the "Great Strike" of 1877, the
opinion was widely advanced by the par
tizans of monopoly, that the rights of peo
ple to bear arms was a standing menace to
the Government, and that some license law
should be enacted to limit the possession
of arms to those whose interests were sup
posed to be identical with "Strong Govern
ment, m other words, despotism. If
such things do not prove that these laws
are but pointers, but stepping-stones to
something beyond, I cannot imagine what
sort of evidence would be considered con
I do not know whether the
not know whether
constitutionality of the laws t
concealed weapons has or has
not been subjected to the test of
supreme court examination, nor do I care,
since no decision of any court, whether
favorable or adverse can have any bearing
on the argument. The constitution of the
United States is perhaps the best example
in existence of terse expression and rigid
simplicity of style. It needs for its com
prehension no extensive culture, nor lega!
education nor exhaustive researches in
black letter literature. It demands only
moderate acquaintance with Webster's
spelling book, and a small modicium of
common sense. - It is so simple straight
forward and honest that the wayfaring
man though a fool can read and under
stand. It is true that hired shysters and
hair-splitting gibblers may profess to find
hidden meaninsrs under the most obvious
texts, but the common sense of the Ameri
can people if not an infalliable guide,
hearlv so at least has long since declared
that the value of a magna, eharta lies in its
being easily understood by every person
affected by its decrees, ana that, hence,
the literal interpretation of the text is the
most natural and true one. 1 o assert
otherwise, is to not only depreciated the
wisdom of theframers, but to impeach their
patriotism as welL The fathers or our
government may not have been the para
gons of perfection, our Fourth of July ora
tors .would have us believe, but they were
certainly as well versed in the English lan
guage, as any of our modern constitutional
lawyers, and were actuated by motives of
patriotism where purity has never been
denied, and when they drew up thejnation
al constitution, they sought only to pre
serve and perpetuate by legal enactments
the liberties so dearly bought with the
sword. It is ridiculous to suppose, and
slander to assert that such men would have
concocted a eharta for the people which
not one man in ten thousand of those peo
ple would, be able to understand, which
would be so obscure iu meaning and uncer-
tain in its renderings as to resemble the
revelation of St. John the . Divine, which
ten thousand learned commentations have
not yet made clear. They would rather
used plain language to express their mean
ing: they would not have crowded dif
ferent meanings into one expression, and
the meaning they would intend to convey
by any one sentence, would be the one
apparent on its face. They had no object
m using ambiguous language, which could
be "made to support contradictory and
unthought of hypothises. When - -(figur
atively, ot course), they spoke of a spade,
they meant and intended to be so under
stood the garden utensil of . Ihat name;
and when they declared that the right
American citizens to bear arms sltould not
be infringed, they meant just what they
said, and would have been surpised to learn
that their language justified such interfer
ence with that right, as is perpetuated in
the laws against concealed weapons.
