The House committee on judiciary has
-decided to report favorably a bill giving
authority to governors of Territories to
make appointments during a recess of the
executive cnunciljto any office which be?
comes vacant during the recess and the
appointments to which must be confirmed
by the council. The commissions are to
expire at the close of the next recess of
the council. The bill also empowers gov?
ernors of Territories to remove any old
cers appointed by them.
Utah is advancing rapidly in the mys
teries of Statehood. Although hardly u
year old, the means employed in recently
electing two United States Senators were
of such a dubious charncter that a reso?
lution has already been passed by the
legislature providing for an investigation.
The elders of the Mormon Churcli are
proving themselves such astute politi?

The contest in Cuba is dragging its
weary length without any material
change in any direction. The Spanish
programme of reforms for the Island is
meeting with no encouragement from the
leaders of the insurgents, wlTo understand
only too well how much value to place on
Spanish promises. In the meantime

who "with twenty thousand men inarched
up the bill and then marched down

Havana in a carriage, escorted by a body
guard of negro cavalrymen.
The investigations of trusts and mnop
olies by the Lexow committee in New
York is revealing some startling facts in
connection with these monstrous combi?
nations of capital for filching from the
people their hard-earned savings. When
sugar trust magnates can make quarter a
million dollars a single night by deft
manipulations of their machinery for rob?
bing the helpless multitude, it is time for
the people to rife in their might and leg?
islate all such moneyed monstrosities out
of existence. The investigations afford a
fearful ievc lation of the evils and dangers
of the protective system.
Mr. Ellyson, of Richmond, and Mr.
Tyler, of Radford, seem to be^pretty well
up in the art of keeping their names be?
fore the public They arc Iboth avowed
candidates of the "receptive" tense for
the Democratic gubernatorial nomina?
tion, which ineau'that in a sub-rosa way
they are hard at work and scheming with
all their might to pluck the plum. In
private life Mr. Ellyson is president of a
-successful (God help the borrowers!)
building and loan association, and Mr.
Tyler is one of those professional
farmers who let the other fellow sweat
Mr. Ellyson is a gnldbug al heart,but his
friends brazonly tell us that in the recent
campaign be smothered his conscience in
order to follow his party. There are
sonuMvhu applaud Ell r son's conscience
.smothering act,*and are willlngjto reward
him with highest honors, but there are
others, and to the credit of Virginia
their name is legion, who view suck con?
duct with pity and contempt. The peo?
ple of Virginia want a whole man for
governor, not n puny, willowy, syco?
The visit of Queen Liliuokalanl of Ha?
waii to this country was after all for a
purpose. Julius A. Dalmer, her private
secretary, says her abdication was an act
consummated under the plainest kind of
duress and would be void, even if it had
been legallf executed. The Bignatureis,
however, worthless, he says, since there
is no such person recognized at Liliuoka
lani Hominis. This would appear, as far
;is the ex-queen is concerned to reopen the
whole question; but even then at first
gjance it is hard to sec what good she ex?
pects to accomplish,as the great majority
<of the people of the United States arc In
fat or of recognizing the republic of lla
waii, and then annexing it to this repnb
lie. It may I*-, however, that her sable
highness is anticipating annexation and
hope* by asserting her claims to receive a
pension at tin* hands of this Government.
If the Democrats of Virgina should de?
velop sufficient Wisdom to see the danger
and the folly Of giving the gubernatorial
nomination to such a man as Iluilding
anil Loan Kllyson,or to that tired farmer,
Geographical Tyler,anil select such a man
as Senator Eugene Withers, of Danville,
the clement of doubt nt'tho polls will be
reduced to a minimum, and the people of
Virginia will be practically assured of a
clean and intelligent administration for
t!u'next four years. Mr. Withers is au
earnest advocate of a new constitution,
and The Times believes it to he a danger?
ous and expensive undertaking Mr.
Withers believes that a convention of
Virginians assembled for the grave duty
of making a new constitution would rise
above party and turn a deaf ear to the
appeals of place-hunters The belief Is
creditable to the man, and when the time
comes that gives us assurance that a
constitutional convention will be con?
trolled by men of equal patriotism,
we will cheerfully advocate such a con?
vention Withers is as the sturdy oak to
the upas tree when compared with Elly
son. AsVc Withers what he thinks of a
man who would smother his conscience
and follow a party that he might receive
a reward for being treacherous to his
" PLAN OF THE OPPOSITION.
The plan of the Atlanta Constitution
to Interpose no unreasonable objections
to [ Republican legislation in Congress
looking to the fulfillment of promises
made in the St. Louis platform, is gener?
ally endorsed by the [leaders of Demo?
cracy throughout the country, and Mich,
there is now every reason to believe, will
be the policy of the opposition for the
next two years at leas';. This seems lo
be a reasonable and proper way to look
at the mutter, and in agreeing to do so
there will be no sacrifice of principle on
the part of Democrats or the opponents J
of Republicanism generally. In the late
campaign each party had a plan which it
was claimed would promote the prosper?
ity of the country, and both of these
plans were fully presented to the people
of the country by their ablest men. Af?
ter hearing all of these questions * dis?
cussed at leiuzth, the voters ofjtbe nation,
by a substantial majority, decided in fa?
vor of the Republican schemes for pro?
moting the public [welfare, and it now
remains for tliem to be carried out.
The vaunted prosperity which Repub?
lican orators assured us was coming with
lightning speed on the simple endorse
mcnt of the policy which they advocated,
has not yet arrived, and. beyond the nat?
ural recuperative powers of an energetic
and progressive people, there are so far
no signs of "the good times coming,"' so
confidently predicted by the sanguine lead?
ers of the g. 0. p. As, however, they
liave had no chance thus far of carrying
out their schemes by legislative enact?
ments, it would manifestly lie impolitic
for their opponents to interpose factious
objections. On the contrary, it. is the
duty of all eood citizens, to whom the
prosperity of the country is of paramount
importance, to give the Republicans an
open field for the trial of their experi?
ments, and theu, if the success they pre?
dict is not arrived at the people will lie
sure to hold them responsible for the fail?
While it is hardly probable that the gen?
eral business depression which has pre?
vailed for the past four years or more
will-continue, far the same period with?
out some spirit of real act ivity, the vot<
ers iif the country arc intelligent enough
t o decide upon the causes, ami will lie]
certain to arrive at n correct conclusion
in"regard Iothem. Hence, wdiile the peo?
ple of the country are awaiting with anx?
iety the result of the expected Republi?
can legislation, they are not so blinded
by partisan feeling as to accept results
from causes with which thej are in no
w \y connected.
The) know something of the evils of
protection in fostering monopolies and
piomotlng trusts, and if the increase of
these, with all the.att ending in justice and
oppression of the masses, ,is to be too
much in evidence, a verdict of disap?
proval will he certainly rendered at tl a
proper tune. Many doubt Republican
sincerity in the matter^ of bimetallism,
and the course of the party in that direc?
tion will alto l>e watched with interest,
On the whole, for the next four years,
the Republican patty "ill be on its good
behavior, as its continuance in power
after that time will depend entirely upon
its management of the vast ami impor?
tant interests submitted to its care.

THE STRENUOUS OBJECTIONS OF
SENATORS MORGAN, DANIEL,
MILLS AND CAMERON HAVE
THE EFFECT OF INDEFINITELY
POSTPONING ACTION LOOKING
TO ARBITRATION?A SERIOUS
PLOW TO HUMANITY.
Washington, Feb. V.i.?The meeting of '
the Senate committee on foreign l editions
this morning matle it apparent that no
agreement could be* reached on general
treaty of arbitration with Great Britain
that would bring the contending factions
either in committee or in the Senate to?
While Mr. Sherman was not told so in
exact words, the inference to be drawn
from what Mr. Morgan, Mr. Daniel and
Mr. Cameron said was that under no cir?
cumstances could this treaty he ratified
at tlie present session. It is believed
that with the executive session of this af?
ternoon Mr. Sherman will cease to press
the consideration ol the convention and
permit other legislative business to have
the right of way.
After an hour and a half spent in dis?
cussing it the committee this morning
framed an amendment along the lines in?
dicated in the dispatches of the Southern
Associated Press. It is framed upon
lines of the amendment of which Mr.
Morgan gave notice and puts into lan
gunge the interpretation placed upon the
convention by Mr. Tnrpie.
It provides that all subjects to be .sub?
mitted to arbitration under this general
treaty must be submitted, after the man?
ner and in the form provided for the sub?
mission and ratification of treaties orig?
This removes the objections aimed at
the treaty by Mr. Moruan and others, to
ihe effect that the submission of all sub
ects to arbitration under the treaty as
now worded would be left entirely to the
President. If it is amended as suggested
by the committee's action of this morn?
ing, only such matters as have been
agreed by the full treaty-making po?ver
of the United States, the President and
Senate acting join'ly, can be submitted
The power to negotiate and conclude
treaties in Great Britain is loiged entire?
ly in the crown ami is exercised for the
crown by the premier. There has becu
no suggestion that the British .treaty
making power has been changed by the
terms of this treaty, and Mr Turpie's
contention was that in like manner the
full treaty-making power of the United
States was to sit on all subjects that were
to be taken before this high tribunal of
The Senate did not agree with Mr. Tur
pie, but found the way to a possible solu?
tion to the problem In giving expression
to that Interpretation In the text of the
convention. With such an amendment
the treaty is safeguarded absolutely, and
the friends of the instrument say there
should not be a dissenting vote in ratify?
ing it for the reason that every question
would then con e up before the existing
Senate as an original proposition. '
The action of uhe committee in adopt?
ing the amendment did not brine about
harmony. On the contrary, the more the
whole subject was discussed the more
evident it became that the differences
wert irreconcilable. Morgan, Daniel,
Mills and Cameron refused to consider
the treaty in a favorable light cm-:; after
they had voted for the amendment. They
opposed the convention on general
grounds and said it was impossible for
them to believe that the country would
be beucfitted by its iatifieation, at the
present time at least. They refused to
listen to the pleading of Mr. Sherman
and his associates and declined to even
admit that the amendment had accom?
plished what had been sought.
