A NEW CHAMPION.
Mr. Gest's Coarse in Congress on the
The Legal Construction Flared. Upon
the Amendment -The. Workmen Are
cnre ana Everything la Lovely.
A contributor to this morning's Union
comes to the resut of Mr. Gest with refer
ence to the eight-l our law. and although
the editor of that paper claims for him
that he is "a gentleman of broad views
and sound judgment," yet neither of these
qualities appears in his discussion.
Here is the point, and please, Mr. 'Re
publican," if you ihould have anything
further to say on i his question do not lose
sight of it and go wandering off into other
matters. It was claimed for Mr. Gest,
with considerable of a flourish, that he
had secured the p issage in the house of
an eight-hour law which would enable
the government etiployes to recover what
was due them for overwork for the time
which they had w irked over and above
eight hours a day. That was the claim
which was made. Now the only question
is, is it truer If it is true, that ends the
matter, and Mr. Gest is entitled to the
thanks of the woikingmen for securing
them their money. If it is not true, why
was Mr. Gest glv.m any credit for any.
thing in relation 1 1 it T And wny in dis
cussing the question do Mr. Gest's sup'
porters resort to jo much special plead
ing? A mountain of excuses will not
alter the fact that Mr. Gest has secured
nothing for the workmen. And why
keep up the delut ion ? Do not tne work
men know as wel as anybody else, that
they can get nothing? Does everybody
not know that all this clap-trap is an
election dodge as eld as the hills? The
Union knows it and Mr. Gest's friends
know it, but they are all in desperate
straits and something has to bo done to
keep up a semblance of good faith until
the, time of election.
But to the discussion of this man of
broad views and sound judgment. In
effect, he says tbtt even if the bill was
bad and Mr. Gest could not, from some
reason or other, oppose it, that conse
quently, he was b ot to Dlame". Then why
claim for him thi.t he secured the passage
of a favorable bill? It is true that such
is not claimed now as strongly as it was,
but why was it ever claimed? But this
contributer openly avows that his special
object in writing the communication he
did, was to show that the Brewer amend
men; was not a serious matter after all
In other words, hat it did not materially
injure the origins! bill. And his argu
ment is that as jet it has not been judi
daily construed and its scope and oper
ation defined, aid after stating this he
constitutes himself the court of last re
sort and immediately construes and de
noes u. At a ne turiner says
that one of the objects of the bill
is to prevent the men who labored the
extra hours, under an express or an im
plied contract, from getting paid twice.
And then he def nes a contract, and says
its meaning can be easily ascertained.
This gentleman seems to have a faculty
of settling ever f thing by a wave of the
hand or a nod or the head. Every court
in the land has leen time and time again
puzzled as to thi meaning cf a contract.
In fact, this vt ry thing constitutes the
bulk of the learning of the legal profes
sion. And vet i bis gentleman settles the
whole field of le;al controversy by a little
scratch of the pen. And one of his
ideas relating to a contract is that where
there is no teal issent to a thing the con
tract cannot be enforced. What does he
mean by "real absent?" A tacit assent is
oftentimes as vilid as one that is uttered
n words. An 1 does be not know that
all the difficulty . in construing contracts
is getting at the intent of the parties, and
it matters litile whether words were
spoken or not, except as an aid in the
construction. And his idea of duress is
not much clearer than bis idea of a con
tract. Anyway, he states but half the
truth. Purest is where the mind never
consents.but the act is performed through
fear of consequences. No matter what
the disadvantages, if the mind consent,
even for the moment, there is no duress,
and the contract is a valid one.
Now this is the case with the eight
hour workingtnen. They protfst, hut
rather than lose the employment they
agree. The utiderstanding is mutual, and
no matter how harsh or disadvantageous
the terms tbey submit to, it is not
through duresc but under protest, maybe.
Some one may say: "What is the differ
ence? The men assent through fear of
losing their places, and is not one kind
of fear as ba 1 as another?" But the
courts under lie law construe it differ-
erently. In these cases the mind re
laxes and assents; in the case of duress
the mind never assents. And this is
what constitutes the injury done by the
Brewer amendment. The labor of the
men will be construed to be done under
a contract es press or implied and. as a
consequence, they will be debarred from
claiming pay for the extra time, be-
canse tney agreea to no u tor
a stated sum. Tbey will not be allowed
to show that they were obliged to take it;
that tbeir fan iliea were suffering, or that
want in any form was the cause of their
acceptance. The original bill would have
permitted them to go to the court of
claims and show that as they worked so
much time over and above what consti
tuted a day'i work eight hours they
were entitled to compensation for all that
time at the at me rate as the fixed amount
for eight hours.
The statement is further made that the
burden of proof to show the contract is
thrown upon the government. That is
an infinitesimal consideration, even if
true. The Union writer says it is true,
because the language Is "Whenever the
court shali and." Did he state that as
his judgment, or in order to mislead? The
court always has to find" no matter up
on which side the burden ot proof rests.
There is no principle of law or practice
in what the gentleman states.
So it wo'dd seem from bis ideas that
this gentleman of "broad views and
sound judgiient" makes statements which
neither coincide with the law nor tie
facts. And it must be further said that
Mr.. Gest has never in these columns been
treated with injustice, although a strong
contempt may have been difficult to sup
press; he has neverbeen denied credit
where credit was due him for honest and
faithful service; he has never-been belit
tled, except as he has left the door open
for such a course; and as to mis-quoting,
misstating or slandering him. that is all
moonshine and is only stated by bis
friends who are proving his enemies
for the purpose of eliciting the sympathy
that is due to a child.
The Formal Opening Deferred When
It Will Ocear-The Band Concert.
It was expected that next Monday
evening Bleuer's band would give an
opening concert in Spencer square, but
on account of delay in painting the vases

all things will be ready and the concert
will take place. Mr. J. C. Adams has
