PUBLISH Kl IT1A1 FRIDAY AT Otfosno, . Mich. Subscription Price : ) i var, , , , , fl.ftO Rt Month 76c The men, -.vlio are .-uttering from Presidential fever now, will doubtless lie of chills before the nominating conventions of 18S4 are htld. A Leading eastern newspaper asks, when will Congress see that it can not make itself a tribunal for ;ul ju beating two-penny claims, ami will have time to legislate for the nation ? It is staled that the expression, of the individual member of Congress, is hostile to any appropriation in aid of the proposed Panama canal. We hope so, and that they will vote as they talk. The failure of Mr. Robeson, of New Jersey, to get retognized as the Republican leader in the House of Representatives, gives general satis faction to the Republican press in all parts of the country. The Memphis, Tennessee-, Appeal gays that too much politics, and too little business has been the bane of the South for the past fifteen years, but that all is changed now. Busi ness not politic J is engaging public attention. There is to be a conference of the leading Greenbackers of the state at Grand Rapids on the 22nd of Feb ruary. It is expected by Gen'llnnes that the faithful will be on hand in large numbers, but we venture to guess a small sized bed room will furnish abundant room for the accom modation of all who will attend. It is amusing to read the com pi i mentary notices of ex-Senator Eaton, of Connecticut, one of the most thoroughly bourbon Senators the Democracy ever elected, in such an out-and-out Conkling organ as the Buffalo, N. Y., Commercial Adver tiser; and it may be pertinent to in quire to what end they are published! With becoming modesty, the mem bers of the Iowa House of Represen tatives, by a small majority, have de cided that it is improper for I.egis lators to accept railroad passes. At the same time it is stated every mem ier has one or more in his pocket, that he uses every Saturday and Mon day, in going to and coming from thl capital to his home. Mr. Dana of the New York Sv:n does not believe in the theory of competitive examinations for places in the civil service, but holds to the theory that every official, responsible for the management of a Department, Bureau, etc., should have the power to appoint his own subordinate, and that he should be held responsible for their official conduct. Not a bad idea. Speaking of the pending pension legislation in Congress the Philadel phia American says, "it is not the payment of any just claims, what ever the amount may be, which excites the public wrath, but the cer tainty that of the 'some three hun dred millions to be paid out, a very large share will go into the pocket! of those who have no honest claim to a pension, mostly secured by perjury and forgery. At no time in the memory of men now living has small pox been epi demic over so large an extent of country. From all parts of the United States, the European continent, and the Sandwich Islands comes the cry- that the small-pox is very prevalent. No time should be lost by ihe people in securing exemption from the scourge by vaccination. That, and only that, can be depended upon to prevent its further and much more rapid spread. The Shiawassee Journal says Judge Porter and Mr. Davidge expect $25, 000, each for their services in the Guiteau case, and they consider that cheap. Well, we thought the gov eminent employed Porter & Davidge on a salary for a short time, but it seems these men think the Govern ment has bought them and paid dear for them at that. It would be about lair to pay the two just one twenty fifth part of the sum named cer tainly no more than that' It is evident to the Chicago Times that the President understood Mr. Blaine' foreign policy, if nobody else did, and that ihejf are of the same mind. We. do not believe, however, that tiie people generally misunder stood Mr. I'.l.iine, or that they dis approved his foreign policy, or that, as the Independent Statesman says, hi) ( ourse while Secretary of State i open to riti(isin in seve ral p. u : ii 11 lars, but on the contrary thai it Ml j 1st. proper and popular to an unus ual degree. Strawberries are plenty in Florida at f 1.50 a quart, and reen peas at 25 cents a quart, and at these prices they are being sent to Washington, New York and other northern cities. A proposition to change the cjucih system, and to regulate it by law, if it ever organizes, is if) be presented to the New York Legislature. Such a policy, if properly constructed, would do more toward securing competent and efficient public servants than all the civil service schemes ever con cocted. The proposed plan is simply to make ihe caucus a legal election within the party, at which only regis tered members of the party can vote, and to provide for keeping the polls open not less than one entire day and evening, so as. to give every member of the party a chance to vote. The person receiving the highest number of voles to be the party can didate, thus entirely doing away with nominating conventions. It is claimed that this system would secure the at tendance of six-sevenths of the party at the polls, instead of the one seventh that now run the caucuses, pack the conventions, and dictate the nominations. Some change in nominating conventions is an imper ative necessity, and we think this the hest plan we have seen suggested, and that it may be worth trying. Let Us Be United. Now, as in the past, many good men in the Republican party are anxious because there appears to be some angry factions in the party, some dissatisfied office seekers, who are trying to make trouble. "The President," says one, "will be unable to make his Administration successful because he will be constantly assailed by the factions hostde to him." "The Republican party in the House," another sadly declares, "is sure to be distracted and will be un able to do its best, because the Speaker has created so many resent ments in making up the committees." And other like complaints too num erous to mention. That there are not a few dissentions among leaders of both high and low degree is true, and it is, also true that a few of their followers make a great deal of noise. They loudly proclaim that the defeat of their favorite, will-be the dissolu tion of the party, or of some other direful portent to the country. On the other hand, their success, they issure us, will save the country, and perpetuate our republican institutions to the end of time. This tumult of ns may be duo to the prefer ences of those who .pend their time in making capital for some Presiden tial candidate who is a favorite, or who has promised them some fat office, or it may, and is just as like ly to be about the rival aspirants for a $500 post office. In either case the respective factions are equally violent and equally certain that the existence of a great national party is envolved in the issue, and one set are just as scnsihle and reasonable as the other. And though the noise which such eager personal followers make and the dust they raise often does attract much attention, yet when the level headed man investigates the matter carefully he will be surprised at the sindlness of the number who are actually interested in the matter and at the total absence of interest, on the part of the mass of party voters, in the factional contests going on in their midst. Even, if it be true, that the men who give much attention to party politics are disturbed at the bitterness of factional conflicts and foresee defeat in factional feuds, yet we find that the average voter who has an interest in the success of his party is not in the least disturbed, because he himself knows that he is not a Republican simply because Mr. Blank is an aspirant for the Presiden cy, or because Tom Jones desires to be post-master at the Confederate cross roads, but because he believes the Republican policy is the best for the country, and this class constitute nineteen-twentieths of the party vo ters. Hence, so long as the party candidates are men of character and ability, it is not of the least conse quence to them whether the nominee is the favorite of this or that band of party managers whether he is a half breed or a stabvart. so that he represent the principles and polit y they approve and desire carried out by the Government. Those who are anxious about the consequences of factional jealousies and squabbles, in the patty, appear to forget that they are nearly all in cident to the distribution of patron age a matter onccrning which the mass of the voters have little or no interest beyond a' desire that the public business may be efficiently and faithfully performed. For this reason, these office seeking factions disturb otily a few, which the many conscious that the officers of the slate and nation are doing those things best calculated to advance the general prosperity of all classes of our people, quietly pass by the howl ins of these Malcontents, and stead ily elect to office the and id ites who represent the principles which they believe are for the hest interest of the country. And, wu have no doubt that In the future, as in the oast, they will be found faithful and t ue, thus securing the triumph of the Repub lican party, because it is the party whose principle! promote the general prosperity of the w hole country with all its varied industries. Dangerous Legislation. Despite the fact that our space is limited, we give place to the follow tng exceedingly able and instructive article from the pen of Hon. Charles V. DeLand, the Editor ol the Herald at Fast Saginaw, and trust it may be carefully read by every person who sees THI Times: There is always need of very care ful sciutiny of the legislation cast like a flood upon Congress at the opening of every session, a large per centage of which is always bad, and the success of which depends largely upon the vigilance and vigor with which it is supported or denounced by the press. Thus it seems at the very assembling of the present Con gress certain members have appir ently made themselves the tools or agents of a movement having hostile designs on two enormous American investments investments that are of national scope and in the direct line of our necessary national policy. The movement is represented by two bills, one to forfeit the land grant of the Northern Pacific railroait, the other to forfeit the giant of the At lantic and Pacific line. The immedi ate effect which such an influence lias on stocks suggesrs that the pur pose behind the movement is the same which underlies some stoct. gambling scheme on Wall sticet. If this surmise is correct the tact may yet be made to appear, lit sUl 11 case Congress will be compelled t expel the members who have idenii fitd themselves with the scheme b) the introduction of the above Ul s for no other course is coiMitttQi with the integrity of the H -u-.e It is more man probable, however that the bills in question really rep reent lines of road already built, which fear for their orn rcveuu s when the two competing lines r completed. The identity of th Central and the Southern Pacili Companies makes one interest of the two routes now open 10 lite Pucitii oist. They have no competitor. When the Atchison, Topeka & Suit.. Pa, built bv New England capitalist, and the Northern Pacific, built b Mr. ViHard'i party, are ti. defied, tw lines competing sritfl the present companies, will be open for tue aii cultural and bu Inetfl COtMmunit) The Union and Central Pacific (two parts of one route) were built with the most lavish assistance Irani Me government. The spectacle ol theii intriguing in Congress to sunt 0111 other investments is not calculated . 1 improve their Handing, either with the country or the business public In both the cases where It is pro posed to forfeit the laud grants the roads are in pro ess of rapid con structioii. The Atlantic and Pat 1 lit line is being built ly the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, ami the North ern Pacific is building its own 'line. Bach road opens up a country which is inaccessible by any other means In the c ase of the Northern Pacific, particularly, the new country added to that within commercial reach 01 the world's markets is a great factor in drawing immigration, multiplying the wealth and p ipuiatiou ot the United Mates. Ttutt company rclie largely for its help on working peo pie from the north of foli'Ope, who are induced to come to America by the offer of woi k in building the new road, with favorable opportuui ties for settlement alter ihe enter prise is Completed. The original policy of the grants demands tlieir fulfillment, particularly as the invest ments under them have gone to enor mous lengths and in good faith, and the non-completion of the roads within the limit set was due to a commercial revulsion and not to am lack of enterprise or good faith on the part of the companies which accepted the undertaking So far as the origi nal purpose and principle of the land grants is concerned, every ques tion of public policy demands that the rights partially earned by the companies be held inviolate. Put there is still another consider ation of vital consequent,;. Ihe magnificent properties of the Atlan tic & Pacific and Northern Pacific roads are intertwined with the pros perity of the whole country. Their orders round out the busy period en joyed by the iron industry. The in d ist rial and commercial good of ihe country is linked in a thousand way. with the prosperity of the above road and staked on tin.Tr completion The bill to forfeit the partly earned grants does not strike at the 1 ids alone, but at the good times of the whole country. Let this fact be un derstood throughout the length of the bud, and the knowledge applied to every member of Congress who supports or encourages the bill to forfeit the grants. "A BUVt llioleo."
