the resignation of Col. Thomas is

No Such right doe* any communi

The man who seek ; to find Ile

Is an ornament to any city, andi's

0U? WASHINGTON LETTER,
(From Our Regular C'orrcontlont.)
Thc two most important events
of tho weelc are tho re-u.s.sombliiig
ol Congress and Ibo resumption ol
I work by thc special international
j parliament-tho Fisheries Commis
sion. Tho House of Representn
j lives heard only yesterday the an
nouncement of thu arrangement of
its committees, but the Senate is ul
rcady In tho midst of a battle.
Tho first matter of consequence
i presented In tim Senate after tho
holiday recess was tho resolution
In reference to tho distribution ol
tlio President's message. Tins was
made the protoxt for Mr. .Sherman,
! in bis feverish baste and anxiety t<
. gol e\. n with Mr, Bininu in mah
. lng au open bbl for tho Uopubiienti
_ Presidential nomination, to launch
j a harangue, something niter the
rj manner of a stump speech, in which
1 ! he. sharply tukos President Cleve
, I land and tho democracy to task on
j I the tariff question. Hut the eon
suming aspirations of the Ohio Sen
ute have led him to adopt a course
> of conduct wholly acceptable to thc
s democracy, as is shown by the mas
t terly rejoinder of Senator Voorhees
,u who was only too glad to avail bim
self of this occasion to emphasize
r the views of the President and th<
h policy of the party.
I Tho tariff debate, thus bravely
. opened, may continue for feomi
lime in the Upper House, as sever
1 al of tho Senators have announced
. their intention to discuss that issu*
- in all its bearings. Still il is poss!
[ bio that the tariff debate may bc
interfered with nt any moment by
the Blair Educational bill, which
1 bas precedence ol'al! other matters
- on account of its being (ho only "un
t finished business." The New Hamp
, shire Senator declares it to lie his
' purpose to push ins bill from day
' to day until the question ls dispos
! ed of. He espressos himself ns be
ing confident that his cherished
. measure will pass both houses and
ho believes the President will np
j prove it. As to the latter opinion,
? a prominent Congressman remark
. ed, Mr. Blair's hope for his bill is
without foundation, lu all ol'Mr.
Cleveland's career, ho has never
cither by deed or word, committed
himself to any scheme of paternal
legislation like the Blair bill. "He
said further that be knew that his
Democratic brethren were divided
upon Ibis question, many of tho
leading men ?d' the party being in
Ibo ufhTmutive side. But bo thought
it would be better to net cathe Na
poleonic military maxim ol'Unding
out what our enemies wish us lo
do and then pursue a contrary
course. He thought Presiden I
Cleveland v? ou ld be likely to regard
it in that light.
Of important proposed legislation
in the House it muy bo well to
mention Mr. Springer':-, bill to cre
ate tho Territory of Oklahoma by
consolidating tho tribes in thc In
dian Territory nuder that form of
government. It is understood that
another bill on Hie same subject
but of an entirely different charac
ter will bo introduced. Thc latter
selieme proposes to remove the In
dians to tho custom part of t ho Ter
ritory and to form a new Territory
out of tho western portion, adding
there to tho region of country
known as "No .Man's Land," which
would make ti Territory nearly ns
large as tho State of Ohio. It ls
said thia plan will be strengthened
by thc support ol'tho Administra
There ls a probability that Wash
ington, Montana and Dakota Terri
tories will bo admitted as States
lids year upon the condition that
they shall not vote for President
until tho olection in 18!)L\ Repre
sentativos Crain, of Texas, is pre
paring to submit bis constitutional
amendment to change thc timo ol
meeting of Congress. The 81st. of
December at noon is substituted
for thc 4th of March as tho time for
tho beginning and termination of
the ofDciul terms of members of tho
House. Congress shall meet nt
least once each year on tho first
Monday In January, unless other
wise ordered by that body. Should
the bill pass both Houses, lt must
be ratified, of course, by two-thirds
of the State Legislatures before it
can become a law of tho land.
One of tho most ludicrous scenes
yet wit newsed in the House was
When Mr. Bou tel lo, of Maloo, who
has mad? some llttlo reputation as
a sectional agitator, called up the
Hebel Flag inquiry. Instantly
there were a dozen objections, but
Mr. Campbell, of New Yarli, mere
ly assumed picturesque attitude
and exclaimed "Ugh," at the same
moment bringing his first dawn
upon his desk with such vigorous
energy as to bo recognized by tho
presiding officer as entitled to the
floor. Tho lillie man from Maine
persists in playing tho Innocent
Abroad for tho House of Represen*
tat!vos. He seldom rises to his feet
without making himself ridiculous. |

In behalf of the Young Men'.*
.Christian Association we desire to
thank the kind popio of Laurens
for their liberal contributions for
the inmates of tho Laurens County
Poor House. The gifts were re
ceived will) grateful hearts by our
un fort u?ates.
Why is it that the good people of
Laurens County fall to appreciate
the opportunity of administering
to these poor unfortunate persons?
Tney aro in great treed not of tem
poral things solely, but in need of
spiritual things also. Why should
we, as Christians, fail le supply
their needs au Jar as in o.:r power I
lies? Wo were pained to learn'
that no attention bad been paid to
their spiritual welfare in titree long
years. Can il bc that the hearts of
tho people of Laurens County are
so hardened that they will allow
these, their fellowmen, to po, us it
were, from their own doors into an
endless eternity without a knowl
edge of a Saviour who hus died for
them? Friends, think of lt Whilo
We are feasting on the good things
which Christ has fret ly given us,
these poor mortals are famishing
for the want of them. At that aw
ful day shall (his bo ?in answer to
any of our pleas: "Verily I say
unto you, inasmuch as ye did it not
to ono of the least <?f these, ye did
it not to mo."
Again thanking those who have
remembered tho poor, and the edi
