OUR WASHINGTON CITY LETTER.
From Ouk lltxii't.Ait CoußßftroxnioNr.
Washington, Jan. 25, 1595,
Justice Harlan this week &olk
eredan opinion giving his reasons
for dissenting from, the decision of
the U.S. Supreme Court in favor
ot the sugar trust, in the case
brought against that trust under j
the Sherman anti-trust law, that I
may make him President of United .
States. At any rate, it would eer- j
tainly be desirable to have a Presi
dent who would hold the views ex
pressed in this opinion by Justice
Harlan. He believes with thou
sands, nay millions, of patriotic
citizens that the unchecked growth
of gigantic monopolies and trusts
for the control of the necessaries of
life is a menace to the existence of
our government, and tlmt they
must be made [amenable tc* law.
The chief obstacle to the agree
ment ot the Senate upon a financi
al bill is President Cleveland.
That fact was clearly brought
oat this when Senator Han
som visited the White House at
the instance of certain democratic
Senators. Mr. Cleveland will have
nothing that in any way favors
silver, although he was iiatly told
that nothing could be done unless
silver was favored. Two ne**' bills
have been introduced in the Sen
ate, one by Jones, of Ark., for the
issue of $500,000, MM* in bonds, ti*e
unlimited coinage of silver on the
basis of a silver dollar being given
lor a dollar's worth of bullion at
the market price, and allowing na
tional banks to issue currency to
the par value of bonds and redu
cing taxation on their currency;
the other—by Senator Smith, of N.
J—torthe same amount of bonds
and a currency commission to in
vestigate and report next Decem
ber.

Judge TlioTxS, 01' Ohio, v. ill not be i
impeached. Thaff was practically |
settled when the House .Tudiciary |
Committee decided, last week, to I
reopen the case and give Judge'
Kicks a hearing. Tlwyre'ore, 110-,
body was surmised when that com
mittee after the homing *>r a vote
of J> to 7 adopted the following:
"Kesolvesf, That while the com ;
mittee is not satisfied that Judge •
Kicks has been guilty of any wrong 1
committed wfcile thair. will
justify it. in repottftng a resolution
of impeachment, v(S the committee j
cannot too strongly censure the,
practice under which 4udgc Kicks j
made his accounts."'
Although this •can hardly l>c con
sidered a vindication farr Kicks, it
isn't satisfitetory t® Uepresentative
Kailey, of Tiaras, who will present
a minority report to the House, in
favor of i inpeachmeift.

asking that au investigation of, a

The delegation sent here by the !

oppose the bill providing e, Tcrri- !
tori&l form of government lor In
dian Territory might as well
have staid at home and stived their
expenses, notwithstanding the ad
vice of Washington lobbyists itch
ing for a fee to the contrary.
The bill is dead, bnt it wasn't J
the Imli&u€'iier the lobbyist who;
did the killing, it was a quiet tip
from President Cleveland which
let the author and (he friends of;
the bill know that if an attempt j
was made to pass it at this session
it would be antagonized by the ad
i ministration. Tbfct settled Utfc fate
in short order., although those who j
get paid for saying so still talk as i
I though the bill was likely te .pass j
unless their efforts against it are 1
kept uj>.
