President Harrison, in a letter to ex

failed because the wage-earner has re
fused to share his shelter with the manu
facturer. He would not even walk under

accurate to say that he would not walk
under the rim of the same umbrella and
let the manufacturer get all ,the shelter

"tbingeikld Register: A bill
la tn he intrcd-ctd in the In
diana legislature at the coming
anaalnn tn nut iustices of the peace on a
salary. The author thinks it will do
away with much of the injustice now
practiced by the petty courts. The plan
is well worth a trial, not only in
Indiana, but in Illinois. The justice
courts in many cases in times past hive
been the means cf grossly oppressing
poor people, and under the present laws
are liable to be. and will be whenever
justices themselves or attaches of "their
courts are so minded to make them. No
more needed reform can be undertaken
than that of regulating the police courts.
I Tke Presidential Term.
At the last session of congress, Hon
A William M. Sorintrer introduced a bill
'' embodying a plan for a constitutional
V amendment electing the president and
:j vice president for a term of six years and
'j of members of congress for three years.
The bill is now under consideration by
one of the house committees, and it is not
jj improbable will be reported back favor
', ably and if passed by congress will be
submitted to the states for their action.
': The SprineSeld Register commends the
proposition. The Chicago Tribune ex-
1 plains the plan acd endorses it editorially
'. as follows;
Mr. Springer's plan is that the president
' shall bold ( tike for six years and be in
l eligible for imnu diu'.e re-election. As to
the wisdom c.f thai chance there Is prob
ably no little d fl'erence of opinion. The
reasons for it which have been often given
never have been answered. The only j
opposition comes from those hide-bound
conservatives who arc opposed to any
change merely because it is a chucgo.
As regards the method of election, Mr.
Spioger proposes to throw overboard the
electoral colleges, with their clumsy, dan-
I gerous machinery, and to substitute
, therefor the idea of proportional repre
! sentation. For instance, the total vote
m of Illinois last month was 873 000. As
Cleveland bad a plurality of 27.OU0, he
j , ot all the 24 electors. Had Mr. Spring
'' r's plan been in force a canvassing
board, composed of the governor, secre-
1 tary of state, and chief justice, would
have added up the total vote and divided
' t by the number of electors, the quotient
: being 86.400. They would have found
; that that ratio was contained in Harri
son's vote ten times, with a remainder of
85.238; that it was contained in Cieve
". land's vote 11 times, with a remainder of
, 25,841. They would have found also
' that the vole for weaver was 25 870 and
for Bidwell 22,247. Therefore the board
would have certified that Illinois had cast
! twelve votes for Ckvelatd, eleven for
Harrison, and one for Weaver.
Such a fvsum applying to all the
: states wculd be a fair one. I; would be
j more representative of the sentiment of
', the whole people than the present one.
; It would give democratic minorities in
IT . ...
Vermont asa republican minorities in
Missouri ua inducement to go to the
polls. It would check the tremendous
efforts now put forth on both sides to
tarry great states like New York, for the
v stakes to be played for no longer would
be 16 votes, but one, two or three. The
dangers which inevitably are connected
now with a close vote on electors in a
state would disappear. In 1881 the nar
' X tow margin of a thousand votes gsve the
; New Tora electors t j Cleveland and
T eleoted him. A narrower margin, such
as that in California or North Dakota this
year, might have entailed angry and seri
al jj iouB controversies. The Springer plan
minimizes those perils and lessens also
the effectiveness of the fraud. At pree-
ent the purchase of a thousand votes in
t one state may determine the political
;, complexion of a score of electors. By
'- the Springer method it miht have no eU
i feet whatever as fir as the presidency
Jf was concerned, or possibly at the most
!i change one vole.
;i Mr. Springer provides further that the
presidential Vi.te shall be canvassed, not
by the outgoing congress, but the ingoing
one. Thus if there is no election by the
j! people and it is thrown into the house,
that house will be one whose members
ji will be elected at the same time the prss-
ident is voted for and not, as now, one
j alected two years prior to that time. If
Mr. Cleveland had not received, this
iij year, a maj rity of the electoral voto, the
$ president would have been decided by a
: i house elected in 1891 a manifest absur
Another feature cf Mr. Springer's pirn
is that the life ot a congress shall end in
December and not in March, as now;
that a new one shall meet in January in
stead of December, as now; and that the
term of a bouse member shall be three
years instead of two. At present an old
A congress hangs on and legislates Rfn-r th
;1 i people may have repudiated it, and one
elected to carry o it other policies does
not begin its labois for thirteen months
after election. Ibis is not consistent
with the principl3 of popular govern
ment. The lengthening of the terms of house
members would be a ehiosie for the bet
ter. At present new representative is
at a serious disadvantage. He does not
take his seat for li months after his elec
tion unless a special session is called.
When congress doc s meet it ttkej him a
long time IO becoue acquainted with the
complicated rulea and usages of the
house an1 t becoiae kcown to the other
members. Tor rvt-uli is that ar a gen
eral thing lie is un.b!e to suow ht stuff
is in him or what te amounts to, or to do
any real service for his constituents, be
fore he bus to ask for a re-election A
new member chose, i in M.-.vember, 1890,
took his seat in December, lS'H, and dur
ing the summer of 1892 hnd to be$in
hustling aroucd to get a renominalion .
That was not fair to him or to his con
stituents. If he Lad a year mice's ex
perience and a fair -liitnce to show wtiat
he was worth hit constituents coul.i
form an intelligent idea of his merits
aed know whether they wanted to keep
him in congress. .1 hree years would give
him an opportunity to dtvjlop and dis
play bis legislative ability, if he had
There is but little to be done at the
present session asidi; from the passing of
the appropriation b.lls. Why cannot
some of the spare time be spent ia dis
cussing and passing this proposition for
an amendment? If when the congress
men are at home during the coming holi
days they will talk this matter over with
their constituents they will find them
ready for a change. Submit the amend
ment to the states atd leave to them the
responsibility of vo ing it up or down.
Do not deny them an opportunity to give
expression to their v ews.
