It in vkbv m.'i:k"IMi to (hose of us who arc engaged In tlio great moral work of t-lcvntlng the tons of legislative bodies to ilnd the Arkansas LcgMattiro falling from grace. It seems that "tho Hou.lHxin.A, -Iiimh of l'ulaskl took offense at Mr. OtiVs statements, saying tlicy wcro nlmcd nl hint, mid lie exclaimed, pointing Ids linger at Otky( " 'If tho gentleman from I.eo will mako tlio statement direct that In tills matter nr uny utlier my actions have lccn controlled liy Improper motives, 1 would not bcsltato losnyto hint nsDni'iil.vx said toAsooi JitiI Asms, thou hast lied I' 'Jlr.OTrv- And I would say to tlio man wlio would maken charge of tliat kind ngalnsl mc that ho Is n coward. " 'Then I say to yon, sir, tliat you are ft iinr,' yelled Mr. .lo.M-s. " 'And you are n coward,' exclaimed Mr. OicV.' " Tlio pcctaclo of n Statu lcRisIntnrcMiik liigto tlio level of Congress Is enough to miiko missionary workers in tlio Held Of legislative regeneration weep if not des pair of maintaining the dignity, decorum untl polished courtesy tliat should mark the, legislative proceedings of tlio greatest, inost el Hired and cultured of republics. There Is one crumb of comfort, however, In tin! proceedings of the Arkansas Legis lature. They Illustrate the fact that at least one member lias read "Mannion." This indicates in n refreshing way that the literary standard of Arkansas lins no hunimlng'blrds on It. Si-r.tKlNo or "Darkest lmglund and the "Way Out" one would think the beat way nut would he to take a Mcamcr. Tin: iiwnirrr Soitiikrncii has hitherto liad n monopoly of tho reputation for "tirfolnis" ii pistol and luxuriating in kill Inj somebody on the sllghtet provoca tlon, In fact, the general Impression In thu cultured l',stnud tho enterprising West is that every Southerner carries a pistol and can't get Into society unless ho bus killed his man. l'opular Ignoranco i.n to the truth of this still continues to bo dime. Hut now stops In Ohio and tho town of I'olitmbus with n shooting and hilling matlneo performance eiual to imj thing among tho cow boys of Toxas or tliu dink corners of Mississippi. Tho usual "colonel" llgurcs and is an editor of course. His victim was unfortunately not of that rank, but merely a city editor nnd ranking us a lieutenant-colonel. Now, jvrhnps there Is a mistake about tho locality. It seems Impossible that tlio great uUhc-holdlng and placc-iceklng Slate of Ohio can bo so steeped In bar barism us to penult such a terriblo condi tion of society to exist. 'When it is re membered that not only tho lieutenant roloncl of a city editor was killed, but that ouo of the amllcnco who lingered to enjoy the pcformanco had his vital spark imenchcdanii others got hurt, tho dtmfcn Minis of tho combat may be Imagined. The youth can now' politely hand over 1ho champion belt, if it has it, to tlio great Stnto of Ohio. It will be amusing to nolo tho editorial silence of tho Western press on the battle of Columbus. A MoiiNi.Mi Msr.ncit tells us (Join Is diiul. Wo had noted his absence from public view for sometime. Kkaii Aiimiiim. John (1.

Among I he in est brilliant of the entertainments were tho afternoon reception of Mr. and Mrs. Jlr.Nj.v.Mi.v Story at Suxonholm, their beautiful plantation: the handsome collation at tho 1'Ickwlck Club, given to tlio iiccns of tlio carnival and (heir maids, by Mr. Jamis Iticimmsox, upon which Hiccaslon Admiral Wai.kw presented them with a decoration in tho form of a ribbon bearing tlio mark of tho United States Navy; tho reception by Governor and Mrs, Fjiancis T.

It Ii during tho last few days of tho prMlnn, when things go w itlin rush, when the hours arc dizzy with confusion, when measures are Hipped through by unanimous consent, and when not tnoro than one member in ten knows whether ho Is on bis head or his heels It is at such times that the trnly knowing Job emerges from retirement and endeavors to llnd u modest place in the procession. Only such men ns Mr. Holjhn of Indiana and Mr. ANiu.tiKOx of Kansas and others, who, like them, have conscientiously striven to prevent such Inroads on the Treasury, can even approximately guess how many of these Jobs havo slipped through during tho noisy and bewildering hurly-burly of tho last few days. Tho average member, Mho Innocently consents to them, would bo appalled If he wcro shown tho list and maibitorcalfroltsslgntlleancc. It behooves all, therefore, to he on their guard from this time forward until the end. They should co-oioratc heartily In expediting all needful legislation such as appropria tions for the conduct of tho Government, but outside of them it will bo well to ex ercise n sleepless vigilance. Mr. Hked's system of suppressing deliberation and facilitating "business" has resulted In n somewhat beggarly account of achieve ment, and tho materials: of uproar nnd confusion are, In consequence, unusually abundant. A ri xck ni'iMirit Is not necessarily a well-posted man, but Joss Siicnnix Is both. . .i i Aixcmrxsor tiii: District Interested In Its affairs, and affected by its prosperity or Its misfortunes, will thank the Hon. Mr. (inot'T, chairman of the House Com milteo on District Affairs, for his able and consistent efforts to secure such legisla tion as Is Imperatively needed for tho welfare nnd protection of .Washington. Hd said cry truly, yesterday, that ho had In hand a number of bills sent from tlio Senate bills of tho utmost im portancewhich tho Houso could easily havo passed had It been willing to do its plain duty In tho premises. Hlsrebukototho reprchcnsiblo Indiffer ence oftho Houso was richly merited and forcibly adinlni'tercd.. Congress has no right totakofromthepeoplo of tho Dis trict tho right to maiiaga thelrown affairs and then neglect to manago theso affairs for them. It Is an outrageous betrayal of n trust voluntarily and arbitrarily as sumed, and, therefore, all tho more sacred and binding. If this session Is allowed to terminate, leaving unfinished tho more imperative legislation required try tho District, that fact will eonstltulo a lusting blot In tho not-too-brllllant scutch con of tho l'lfty-flrsl Congress. And this Is all tho more truo because tho Houso has ct time, after getting through with tlio appropriation hills, to take up and com pute such legislation as Is necessary tothe District's integrity and welfure. Wiirx Tiir wim: is in tho wit Is out, but It does not necessarily follow that when the tho wlno Is out tho wit is m, IIetoi hkmativi: Wiki: of Illinois Is not ilia member-from lluncombe, but ho is talking for that celebrated constituency very loudly theso days. His ponderous resolution, with its long string of wherc ucs, is sound and fury and slgnllles nothing except that Mr. Wiki: must think tho good people of llnneombc aro longing to ho talked to. Iho resolution In question proposes to amend the Constitu tion so us to bring about Iho impeach ment of tho Speaker for offenses alleged to have been committed and omitted by Mr. 1!ki:ii. The Constitution can't be amended In tho direction Mr. Who: proposes, und ho knows It. Tho resolution can't get out of the Committee on tho Judiciary and he knows It. Kvcn If It did it wouldn't pass tho Houso, and ho knows it. Ilvculfit should pass the House It couldn't pass the Semite, and ho known It. Therefore It Is simply talking forllun coinbo to projKjse It.

If 1 wcrcJo tender any advice to young men in the legal profession or contem plating such a career, I think I could not refrain from asking them to dismiss from their minds the Idea that tho practtco of the law Is made up in an Imiiortatit de gree of oratory and eloquent addresses before courts and Juries. No one should enter this profession who Is not prepared to do very hard, continuous and often Irksome work. I shall follow this advice by saying that there Is no mistako about another fact, to wit: In tlio practlco of law, as In everything else, honesty and frank, fair dealing Is not only enjoined by good morals, but Is the best policy. It is it delusion to suppose that the nobla pro fession or tho law can bo faithfully pur sued or successfully practiced by trickery and over-reaching subterfuges.

Yesterday afternoon the following appeal was Issued by Mayor Hall: To The Furfi.ic: A mining disaster, at tended with fatal results unparalleled In the history of Canadian mining, has fallen upon tho town and tho people of Spring Hill, X.
