KICKING AT THE GATES.
The Mora I as: Khrfl Maaw I In llaad

What "influence'' Las been brought to
bear upon the morning sheet to lead it to
oppose the gates at the railway crossing
in Rock Island, as suggested by the Ar
gus, and which the council has prac
tically decided to order, is a matter of
mystery to some, though not to all. It
would gratify the curiosity of some
though, to know whether it M the same
spirit of mullstmess and contrariness that
induced it to fight tie Holmes syndicate
coming into town, the fire depart
ment improvements and the street pav
ing, simply because the Arois happened
to be on the other side the side of ad
ancemeot and public enterprise or
whether the powers that in a lan;e men
ure dictated its course in times past.
guidea its policy now.
But let it bo said to the wisdom and
considerate spirit of the council, the gates
are to be provided not only at Twenty.
fourth street, but at Eighteenth, and the
members of the municipal bnly, no
doubt, are too well sware of the
lnioh'$ tactics to change their
sentiment now. Tun aldermen leally
have eipected opposition from this
source. They have had it to face in
every enterprise thev have bv the pow.
era vested in them given their sanction
and approval. They would pect to
see it and to meet it if they were to en

duct or any other enterprise in the inter
ests of public safety and the promotion
of public welfare
The Union ridicu'es the idea of gates
and alludes to them as "a pectilitr device
of our dear Boston uncles." We don't
know that this attempted sarcastic flini
is anything against the gates, any more
than it would be to attribute them to ibe
enterprising thought of some nearer
relatives in Chicago, where there are
perhaps more of them than in Boston,
and where there is not a street crossed
by railroad tracks that is not protected
by them. The same is true of smaller
cities in Illinois all along the line of the
great roads leading towards the me
tropolis of the west, and it would not be
surprising if other cities in the west, be
aides "our dear Biston uncles," er.joy
the convenience. "Our relatives in Kan
sas" may not yet have the benefits of this
evidence of civilization. Rock Inland
will have it, nevertheless.
The device is of stu h a nature that no
possible oppositiou to it could be con
ceived i xcept prompted by pure selfish
interests or an unreasonably stubborn dis
position. The gates will cist the city
nothing, they will do no harm if they do
no pood, and they will do good as a Cord
ing a means of public safety though tbey
may interfere with "ttaois driving off the
ferry" as the Union suggests. Bui the
council hail no particular thought of the

Tomorrow evening A. R. Wilber's
Burleigh combination commences a three
nights' engagement at Harper's theatre.
Toe .Ni J4 .eiti says of this com
pany: The famous comedy-drama "Escaped
Prom the Law." was produced last night
by the Burleigh Combination. The
company comprise some first class peo
ple, and give a very finished perform
ance. The play Is full to overflowing
with fun, genuine and hearty. During
the four acts the interest is sustained and
the merriment well nigh continuous. It
is a grand play, and a grand success.

It is unjust to tax the stomach with
burthens that it cannot bear. Many silly
people thua tyrannize that fuithfnl ser
vitor until it rvbels and punishes them
as they deserve. Dyspepsia is usually
the child of gastronomic folly, but
whether this or the natural associate of
inherent feebleness from childhood, it is
surely and pleasantly remediable with
Hostetter's Btomach Bitters, the finest
and most highly sanctioned gastric tonic
in existence. As a result of the tone
imparted to the stomach, and the in
creased activity of its digestive and as
similative action, insured by the persist
ent use of this benign invlgorant, general
stamina is augmented, the nerves
strengthened and tranquilized, and a
tendency to insomnia and hypochon
driasis defeated. Billiousness, chills and
fever, rheumatism and kidney troubles
are conquered by this admirable medi
cine. Two ranchmen named Wilson recently

In the September number of the AirM
American Unit appears an article, "The
Coming Congress," written by Henry Ca
bot Lodge. In advocating federal legis
lation to control elections in the south
he writes the following sentence: "There
is, of course, no doubt of the power of
congress to pass a federal election law
for the purpose of regulating the elec
tions which decide the choice of electors
and members of congress "
In reading this extraordinary assertion
ot the power of congress, written by a
republican leader, who will be called
upon to vote upon the question, one may
well ask: Is the constitution of the Uni
ted States still in existence The al
leged power of congress to regulate the
election of members of congress and to
supercede state laws touching this mat
ter, is derived from Section 4. Article 1.
which provides that "the times,
places and manner of holding
elections for senators and rrpre
sentalives shall be prescribed in each
state bv the legislature thereof; but tt.e
congress may at any time, by law. make
or alter such regulation, except as to the
places of choosing senator.."
This provision does not ref-r to presi
dential electors. Congress has no power
whatever to regulate the manner of ap
pointing electors. That power was iv
served 10 the legislature of each state.
Section 1. article 2, provides that "each
state shall appoint, in such manner as
the legislature thereof may direct, a num
ber of electors equal to the whole num
ber of senators and representatives," etc.
Congress can only fix the time when the
electors shall lie appointed. Even the
republican elertoral commission recog
nize the absolute anl exclusive power
of the state to regulate the choosing or
appointment of electors. It is proposed
by such an unheard-of assertion of con
gressional power to secure republican
electors in plain violation of the consti
tution of the L'nited States?
