BILL TO BENEFIT
Mr. Johnson Kndcavors to Mar? Con*
federate Soldiers Paid for llorses
Taken From Them at Surrender.
Special To The Advertiser.
Washington, Maroh 31.?Much in
terest is felt among Confederate soldio s
in the oiTo of Representative Johnson
to lecuro f >r them pay for side-arms,
h >rses, and baggage taken from them
by iho Union so'diers after tbe surreu
dir at Appomattox, in violation of the
Confederate soldiers' paroles. An act
was pissed by the 57.h congress to au
thorize and direct t^e war department
to pay these cla'ms. Mr. Johnson ro
quested the newspapors of the 4th dis
trict to publish this law, In order that
every Confederate soldier who h.-.d a
claim might pre-ent it. To ass'st the
old soldiers, he visited severa' portions
of tbe district and conferred wi h and
advised them about the preparation of
In doing this work Mr. Johns m dis
covered that inany Confederate soldiers
never received any formal written pa
ro'os. As the act passtd by tbe 57th
congress applied ooly to sold'ers who
wore formally paroled, the war d part
in:nt construed It t> apply only to
horses used in the army servico. Re
cently Mr. Johnson introduced in the
63th congress a bill authori/.ing and di
recting the Quartermaster General ^to
piy the Confederate soldiers and citi
zens of tho Confed-jrats States for
horses, provisions and all o'her prop
erty taken from them by Union sol
diers, after tho surrendor at AppDmat
Ia arguing in support of his bill be
fore the war claims committee, Mr.
Johnson pointed out that if tho gov
ernment felt under obligations to pay
Confederate soldiers who were formally
parolod, the obligation was equally as
strong In favor of those who were
never formally paroled. Some soldiers
were at home on sick leave, some were
on detached service, etc. All these
wero not formally paroled. He argutd
further that if the government, after
thirty-seven year?, fo't constrained by
a high moral obligation to pay the sol
dier for tho horte used In the army
servle:, the obligation wavequally as
strong to pay for (he horse used in
making a support for his wife and
children. As for widows and non-com
batants, the highest sense of morality
and justice against the government
liking tholr property without com
pensatlon. The war claims committee
has the bill under consideration. It is
cortalnly meritorious, and its passage
would do justiu e to and help many poor
paopio In the South.
The introduction of this bill and the
effort on the part of Representative
Johnson to secure its passage, show
that he is alive to the interests of bis
people, and Is on the lockout for oppor
tunities to serve his constituents.

HUMANITY'S DEBT TO
THE UNITED STATES
By JOHN W. FOSTER,
Ex-Secretary of State
[Y its steady championship of a freer commerce and of
most elevated principles of conduct in war tho United
States has brought about an ALMOST COMPLETE
CHANGE in the practice of nations. There still re
mains to bo incorporated into international law ono
of tho principles announced by the founders of our
government and steadily advocated up to tins day?tho exemption
from seizure of PRIVATE property on tho sea in time of war.
As our country from its earliest history led the nations of tho
earth in creating a more elevated and perfect system of interna
tional law, so also it has been tho most active IN" ADJ LISTING IN
TERNATIONAL CONTROVERSIES and preserving peaco by
means of treaties of arbitration. Tho first treaty negotiated after
tho organization of our government under the constitution?tho Jay
treaty of 1791 with Great Britain?marked a distinct advanco in tho
practice of nations and sought to ameliorate tho harshness of war
and to establish more clearly neutral rights.
* * *
Tho ONLY instance in our history whero fraud and corruption
have been established against an arbitration tribunal was that with
Venezuela under the treaty of 1S0G. Soon after the adjournment of
the commission charges of irregularity and frnud on the part of its
members were made at Washington by tho Venezuelan government,
and an investigation established to tho satisfaction of congress tho
fact that A CORRUPT ARRANGEMENT HAU BEEN MADE
between tho American commission, the umpire (a Venezuelan), the
United States minister in Venezuela and his relative, tho leading at
torney before the commission, by which a large part of each claim
represented by the attorney and allowed by the commission was to
bo DIVIDED between tho persons named. After considerable de
lay in securing legislation a new commission was organized, which
reviewed the work of its predecessor.
OF THE TWENTY-FOUR CASES ALLOWED BY THE FIRST COM
MISSION ONLY NINE WERE PASSED ON FAVORABLY, AND THREE
OLD CASES REJECTED WERE ALLOWED BY THE NEW COMMIS
SION, REPRESENTING MORE THAN HALF OF THE TOTAL AWARDS.
THE WORLD IS NOT GROWING WORSE
By RABBI JOSEPH KRAUSKOPF of Philadelphia
UCII fault is found by pessimists with the morals of
the present day. That there is ground for complaint
I would be the last to deny. I know of the laxities
that are tolerated even in the so called .BEST SO
CIETY. I know of tho vices that fester uncontrolled
on tho very surface of the fashionable world.
But I also know that in all the centuries that civilized man has
lived upon the earth THERE HAS NEVER BE EX AN ACE
IN WHICH THE MORAL SENSE WAS SO DEEPLY
ROOTED AND AS WIDELY DIFFUSED AS AT THE
* * ?
Never in the history of man havo human rights been regarded as
so sacred and human possessions as so inviolable. Never beforo have
nations been so fearful of waging cruel war and shedding innocent
blood. Never before have nations been so powerfully swayed by
THE POWER OE RIGHT. By that power havo whole empires
in our day been made to tremble, and vast armies have been made
to cower. *
Never before havo the poor and tho weak stood as protected under
tho regis of the law as at the present time. Never before have such
liberal provisions been mado for healing tho sick, for sheltering tho
aged and infirm, for caring for tho orphans, for educating tho ig
norant, guiding the straying, lifting the fallen. Never beforo has
love held so large a place' IN THE CORRECTION OF THE DE
FECTIVE and in the education of tho young. Gone is the pillory,
the torture chamber, the stake. Tho rod has disappeared from our
schoolrooms and the cat-o'-ninc-tails from our homes.

|IIE attempt has often been mado in history?in Greece
and elsewhere?to establish a democracy on the basis
of slavery, or of PERMANENT INFERIORITY. It
has never succeeded. It was a wiso instinct?an instinct
of self preservation?which dictated to our states the
policy of rapidly assimilating EVEN THE IGNORANT elements
that came to us from foreign shores. Wo havo gone, perhaps, too
far in that direction. The wholly ignorant, the illiterate, tho utterly
unqualified, should be excluded, but coupled with such exclusion
should always bo tho proviso that IT CAN ONLY BE TEM
PORARY. If tho lessons of history afforded by the examplo of
other nations should bo forgotten, if in tho caso of tho colored peoplo
or of any other section of our people tho attempt should be mado to
oreate a permanently inferior and disfranchised class, OUR DOOM
