THE Penisylvaniia Senate- witpcsbd
a unique and refreshing spect-aclO the
other day. Senator-elect Cox, a Demo
crat from Luzerne county, refused to
take the constitutional oath that le
had vot used money to secure.his elec
tion, and forfelted his seat. Ile used
his montey inl a strictly "legitimate"
way, inl eqtippinig Campaign clubs and
paying delinquent taxes, just. as every
othet candidate most pirobably did,
but this he conisidered ats violating the
spirit of the constitution. It is a pity
that P. man of such Integrity and deli
cato perceptions of right sbould be
lost to his party. It is well to remark
here (hat all the Republicans swallow
ed the oath at a gulp, thongh bribery
in maTny cases was notorious.
Tri. populatioi of the United S(ates,
excluding Territories, is about 49,365,
000, and in an estimate of 306 mem
hers, the full capacity of the present
.louse, the ratio will be a fraction over
161,000. The New England Staten
will lose three Congressmen and the
Central States five, while the West
will gain eight, the Pacific States one
and the South six. The gain by States
on the present number would be: In
Arkansas, 1; California, 1; Georgia,
1; Iowa, 1; Kansas, 3; Michigan, 1;
Minnesota, 2; Mississippi, 1; Nehras
ka, 2; North Carolinia, 1; South Caro
lina, 1; Texas, 4, and West VirginIa, 1.
The States losing representat ion Would
be Florida, 1; Maine, I ; New hluap
shire, 1; Vermont, 1; New York, 2;
Pennsylvania, 1. The representation
from the other States would remain as
MR. CiHinu.:s NonniorF, the Her

again suiered himself to bo beguiled
by the Rtadical executive committee of

pious horror at the misdeeds of the
Democrats. Once before Mr. Nord
hol' was betrayed in a similar
manner and found hiniself con
pelled as an honest man to re
tract his statements. A paragraph
from the Beaufojrt Crescent, a D~emo
cratic paper, insinuating frauad on the

rolled around as a precious morsel ont
the tongues of Mackey and Mr. Nord
Shofl. If .Mr. Nordhoff will kindlr

"Wu~t. Gardeld ignore the claims of

LOlfsvILLE, December 17,--Gov.
James M. Siith, Chialrmun Georgia
Railroad Commision, Atlaida, Ga.
Dear Governor: Infooking)over- the
ofileial report of the Commisolon to the
Legislature, I see myself recorded as
having expressed the opinion that six
per cent. dividends would be a ira
sonable return for stockholders in
railroads to be allowed to receive for
their investimenits. I cannot recall
wcv having given expression to such
views, or ever before having boon
called upon even to flame or express
rn opinion upon the subject,'and I am
mire your honorable body has either
been misinfoimled as to iy views, or
liave misunderstood sone statement
r expressionl which I may have used
in some other connection, but certain
ly not intended to convey the opinton
which has been accredited to me. If
[ were called upon for such an opinion
[ certainly would not fix the dividend
ilch any railroad corporation shoul
be allowed to receive at less than ten
per cent.; and I think the following
oisiderations should Justify even a
larger (ivideid than (hat, to wit: In
hie first place, as property invested In
'ailroads benciits all the cotmmunity In
i far greater degree thai property *im

mre, receiving all the benefits of cheap
ransportation and Increased values of
ands, might look with equinantimitty
ipon dividends at least as great as the
rinary profits deirved from nercan
ile amd nanut'heturing investients,
wet those that are exceptionally prollt
In the second place, the enormous
imount of money required to build
ailronds places their construction gen
'rallI beyond the power of single in
iv'iduals, who must combine in cor
)0'ations, iaid withdraw their money
*romt other invest lents and put it in
ailroads. Of course thero would be
10 eMIcouragetniit to Capitalists to
nake this use of their surplus mieans,
inless they are allowed the privilege
)f inereased earinings fromn their in
'est menlts. To limit the dividends to
ower rates Would he simply to put a
eiilty upon investing in a railroad,
vhichlm surely should not be the policy
>f the State.
In the next place, the building of a
'ailroad is usually a matter of some
ears. Mtoney invested in a railroad
tock is usually unproductive of any
lividends for a much longer period
han ioney invested in mercantile
mrsuits or an1y ma111ncturing enter
mrises, and should upon that ground
lone be entitled to yield better re
nri afler it has run through the un
>roductive period. I think, therefore,
hat nto reasolable manl can coilain

tion for Mrs. Sprague.
Wash. Cor. Louisvi10 Courter-Journal.
It is strange that asttlte men don't
see that they co:nede everything when
they court favors troi. Mr. Conking
through attentions and pecuniary as
sistance to Mrs. Sprague. If that lady
had cared to preserve. the respect of
her father's old friends could she not
easily have -donesid by living at Edge
wooa and eduestiig hero children in
stead of permitting politicians to pay
the rent of an expensive house in the
city, and also keep a rotinue of ser
vants, carriage and other expenses?
Last winter Mr. Conkling was her
daily visitor, and his servant, who is
so pecullar-looking that lie is unmis
takable, was major dono of the estab
To visitors who were strangers,
Mrs. Sprague would expatiate upon
her fhiend, Mr. Conkling, bringing in
his name even when unnecessary, as
though she gloried in the fact that
their names were linked together.
Mrs. Sprague, as well as Mr. Conk
ling, has braved so much that they are
not in the least sensitive, and, as I be
fore said, they succeed in all their
earthly undertakings, and so long as
that is the case they are indifferent to
public opinion. Senators who have
gossipped won't hesitate to shield Mr.
Conkling if necessary. From politi
cal motives some will lie in his favor,
and others from prudential inotives,
lest he say, "You are another." And
so, no matter about tile verdict, Mr.
Conkling will boss Now York politics.
andit as long as there is a necessity for
protecting Mrs. Sprague it will be
done, and that, too, by men who are
careful of the good name of their
own wives and daughters.
Tihe President and his wife have
acted throughout this scandal with
great tact and good judgment. They
have braved (lie ire of Senator Conk
ling, and Mrs. Sprague has never en
tered the White House during this
administration. It remains to be seen
what course General and Mrs. Gar
field will pursue after the 4th of March.
General Garfield may not care to an
tagonize the New York senator, and
that gentleman's ultimatum is alware:
"Vill Iyou receive Mrs. Spragut?"
The refusal of MA's. Conkling and her
daughter to invite Airs. Sprague to the
latter's wedding was resented by the
senitor to the extent of absenting
himself on that occasion and a refusal
to speak to his daughter afterward.
When he wished to smooth his ruffled
plminiage prior to the State convention
in New X ork laat February. he coin
ianded his wife to come to Washing
ton and drive in an open carriage with I
Mrs. Sprague and dine with her. If
she obe y"ed ho said lie would call to
see his daughter and be reconciled to
her. The injured, patient wif'e meek
ly submitted and came to the Riggs
House, where she passed tive days.
Mirs. Sprague drove in her carriage to
the hotel and sent her card to Mrs,
Conkling. She was received.
Next dav the two Iadies rode to-1
gether through the principal 'streets of
the city. The last, move in the gane
was the dinier. Many were bidden,
but excuses -made hv all but Judge
Swayne, Judge Fiefd (but not their
wives), Mirs. Hamilton Smith, a hirs.
Barrett, a young Man, imemnber of
Congress fron." thode Island, Mrs.
Spi'ague, Senater and Mr's. Conkling.
These coihpriP$ the guests. The hos -
tess cir Mr'. Cockling caused the din-I
ncr to be Avritten'up for the press in
(lhe most lasvisi style, with full descrip
tion of the minutcst details. Mir.
Conkling considered this the ablest
bit of str'ategy~ of his life; but when
the mnartyr wife was gone, and all wvas
under'stood, it was consideired the
flimsiest structure ever erected. The
wvhole thing toppled over, and men
blushed foi' the sex when they consid
ered the enoi'mity of the outrage upon
ani un icoinpllatimni g w'ife. Nevert he
less, Mr. Conkling carr'ied the coniven
(ion for Grant, and expected, through
his elevation to the presidency, to si
lence all those who expr'essed disgust.
He had mnatie Cornell Goveirnor to
avenge himself upon the President
and Secretary Sherman. But not even
lie at that time expected that his pow
er' was great enough to elevate Mr.
Ai'thuir to (lie second highest office.
And now his revenge is comnplete, and!
lie feels sti'ong enough to defy God
TmE MIssrNG LINK OF ENGLTsH.-The
St. Louis Republican says that bids
for the supply of the missing pronoun
have not conme in very numerously
since that journal's recent advertise
ments for propositions. The Atlantic
Monthly, however, acknowledges the
receipt of twvo pr'oposals, of which
both ai'e old ones revi'ved. One is a
coinpound of the two pronouns now
used for mien and women, which is to
be declined: Ilesh, hiser,hlimmer', and
it is stated that in 1872 an agreement
was circulated among anid numerously
siiined by ,that class of litei'ary peopl'e
who imagmne those sort of i'eforms in
langunage cani be brought about in that
wvay, pledging the subscribers to use
hiesh, hizer and himmer thereafter.
T1he othier' suggestion is chte, chiei's,
chter, which was first introduced in
1851 or 1852. but does not seem to have
made much progress in the affections
of good writers. The fact is the Eng
lish language is a complete philologi
cal structur'e, and despite ouri full
knowledge of its deficiencies, it is like
ly to remain iincomplete so long as time
itself endures. No language, and (lie
English almost less than any otheri,
can be built and fashioned to order;
and we have to make the best we can
of what we have, and ti'ust to luck for

My wife had been troubled for several months
with Bronchitis, and during that time tiled
nearly cvery thing imaginable without the
slightest benefit. A friend of hers to whom I
mentioned it told me to get a bottle of Brewer's
Lung Restorer, which I died, and less than one
bottle cured her entirely. I will recommend it
to all who are similarly affected.
Yours very truly,
