NO. 3 WHITAKER STREET, (MORNING NEWS BUILDING). J> 11. EiriLi., Proprietor. W. T. THO.UPSOX, Editor. SATURDAY, JUNE 18. 18SI. Lorillard talks of giving up business entirely, so that he may be able to ioin the English Jockey Club as one not “en gaged in trade.” He can have his hair fine cut and parted in the middle. Conkliug's nearest friends say they have proof that the Garfield administra tion has raised $'200,000 to elect a couple of half breeds by biibery, and that the proofs inculpate no fewer than fifteen members of the Legislature. It has been decided by the United States Court of Wyoming that it is law ful for a heathen Chinee to marry a white girl, yet the emigration of white girls from Massachusetts to that Terri tory has not thus far been greatly accel erated. . The Hartford Time* says the spirit manifested by Grant is bitter and ugly, and his unguarded talk is one of the many indications that this split in the Radical party is on Grantism vs. anti Grantism, and goes down through the middle. > A Republican Senator who has just returned to Washington from New York speaks of a very stormy interview be tween Conkling and Cornell, after which both looked like boiled lobsters. Cor nell, it was said, had proposed to Conk ling to drop Platt and push him through as a colleague. The census statistics of the tobacco crop of 1960 show a total production of 472,757*164 pounds, nearly double the crop of 1970. The two States of Ken tucky and Virginia raised considerably over half of this. Louisiana is put down for 56,503 pounds of tobacco, as against 15,541 ten years ago. Capt. Payne, notwithstanding the de cision of the Federal Court affirming the inviolability of Oklahoma soil by white men. is in St. Louis, trying to organize another band of raiders to occupy the forbidden territory. He does not find it very easy work, as people know the gov eminent is prepared to bounce all raid ers. A Chicago admirer of Senator Conk ling, who saw him this week, insists that he will be returned as Senator, whether Platt is or not, and represents the latter as entirely willing to give up all chance of his own return to secure that of his friend and former colleague. Mr. Piatt, it is said, makes from $25,000 to $30,000 per year in his business in New York. The Pennsylvania Legislature at its last session endeavored to purify parly politics in that State. To this end they passed a law making frauds at primary elections and Dominating conventions a crime. By this law, a repeater who votes twice for delegates to a Republi can county covention is as guilty as if he deposited two ballots for a member of Congress, and is subject to indict ment, fine and imprisonment. Pennsyl vania is a good State in which to try a law of this kind, for its party politics are notoriously the most corrupt of any State in the Union. Pawnbrokers have become so numer ous in New York that the Board of Al dermen of that city are taking measures to decrease their number. By the new ordinance prepared for that purpose, the license for carrying on the business is increased from S3O to SI,OOO, bonds and sureties must be given by the broker; the interest demanded is not to exceed 25 per cent'an small and 10 per cent, on large sums, etc. The pawnbrokers are naturally a good deal worried over the new law, and will send a delegation to wait on the Aldermen and secure a hear ing in opposition to it. Among the many hostilities that have lately broken out inside the Republican party is a very unfriendly feeling between Senator Logan and young Lincoln. The former was generally credited with be ing the political godfather of the Secre tary of War, having suggested his name to Garfield and secured him his Cabinet position. Logan’s aim in getting his man into the War Department is said to have been a desire to be revenged on an old enemy, General Sherman. He ex pected Lincoln’s assistance in this work, but he has been wofully disappointed. Lincoln found the social pressure of the army too strong for him, and after one or two feeble attempts to discipline the officers, gave up, and is now wholly in their hands. The Albany Evening Journal , Repub lican, informs General Grant that his mistake is in ‘‘confounding opposition to a third term with hostility to himself” —that he should comprehend the fact “that if he (Grant) had been descended from an angel, and Garfield never been born, he (Grant) could not have received one more vote in the convention”—that “the objection was, and is, to a third term,” which the Journal hopes “will some day find its way into the funda mental law and prevail forever. It is our conviction,” continues the Journal, “that no amount of public service will ever be allowed to constitute an exception to this salutary rule; and it ought to console even a disappointed savior of his country that but few now think that Washington himself could have commanded a third term; and that to him has been vouchsafed the enviable privilege of demonstrating the adaman tine firmness of public sentiment on a point which the Father of his Country left unsettled.” The French Radicals carry their prin ciples of liberte, fralernite et egalite to such extreme lengths that they really make them absurd. They have lately been compelled to give up one of the cherished principles c f equality to which thev have energetically clung for some time. In public meetings they have al ways refused to have any Chairman or other presiding officer, on the ground that this was an imitation of the “one man” system of ruling, and at va riance with that true equality by which ever}' person present at a meeting was entitled to the same rights and privileges as everybody else. The necessary result of such a ruling can easily be imagined. Nobody having the right to control anybody else, every public meeting soon degenerated into a noisy and riotous mob, often ending in fight. At the late Communists’ meeting, therefore, at which Citoyenne Michel was so prominent, the old system was abandoned, and, in future, the Com munists will so far surrender the princi ples of universal equality as to allow a chairman to preside over them when bolding a public meeting. Tuthill's Departure. The scathiDg philippic which Assem blyman Tuthill in the joint convention at Albany yesterday launched at Chaun cey M. Depew, proceeded from one of two sources. Either it is a roorback, in tended to stiffen the Conkling line and beget, so far as it can, a popular reac tion in behalf of the humbled boss, whose skirts are presumably free from corruption, or it was based on cold facts, of which is seen in the Bradley charges the “Baby figures Of the giant mass of things to come at large.” The first theory is admissible, but Mr. Tuthill hit out too straight from the shoulder for mere acting, and events dovetail remarkably with his state ments. The potency of the lobby and the dominance of corporations over the virturous- Republican states men of the New York Assem bly have been themes time and oft of honest metropolitan journals, but never yet has one of that ilk risen in his place as Tuthill did,and denounced those that sway the legislation of the Empire State for their private ends. That he dared to do so is both surprising and gratifying. What will be the outcome of his ar raignment it is hard to see. If it be true, as seems probable, that Barber, Sessions A Cos., have gotten in their work, it may be assumed that since the Bradley disclosures they have taken pains to cover their tracks, and if they find that the delivery of the goods is re mote or impossible, they will see to it that the consignees shall not be come up with ia a hurry. Calling for Legislation. We notice several articles going about iu the press calling for State legislation n Georgia to aid the farmers in stopping he wheel of “all cotton,” but we do not hink any of them emanated from prac ical farmers tinder the wheel. We think the call comes more from those in -ympathy with him than from the far mer himself. No doubt the farmer finds it difficult to say what legislation would work his immediate relief, with out leaving behind the sting of ultimate dishonor. This kind of relief he is not seeking, and if the State can offer no other it would be better to dismiss the subject, and let the farmer work out his own relief, guided by the experiences of ihe past. As the object of all legislation is the “good of the people,” or should be, of course, this source may properly be consulted in the search for relief, but never to the destruction of the rights of others, nor to the dishonor of those seeking relief. Generally speaking we have too much legislation, thereby confusing government, weakening the original “stalwart” self reliance of the people, and educating them to effemi nate dependence upon already overcrowded statute books. Wise statesmen will endeavor to avoid these evils, while they leave no obstacle in the way of a free and full development of the industries of the country. Not Hero Worshipers. The Boston Journal deprecates the bold utterances of General Grant as set forth in the Chicago interview. “They are not,” says the Journal, “the senti ments he held when first elected Presi dent, and they are in no sense Republi can sentiments, but opinions he has come to entertain of iate. This, we be lieve, is the feeling of a large majority of the Republican party and of many thousands of men who will never cease to remember the great service of General Grant. But our people are not hero worshipers.” We suppose not. All these are well known facts. It was needless for the Journal to inform the country that Gen eral Grant’s Chicago views had “come to him of late.” The country had not forgotten that he was for eight years the Republican sphynx in Washington. No Republican politician we can now recall has entertained the same views out of office he did when handling the spoils. Neither was it necessary for the Journal to remind the country that Republicans are not steadfast “hero worshipers.” They have given conclusive evidence of that fact. It is the “ loaves and fishes ” which call forth their adoration and bend the pregnant hinges of their sanctified mar row bones. As soon as their hero is shorn of these they dump him into the sewer. Ain’t it so, Conk ? A Sensible Woman. There is one woman in lowa who isn’t hankering after office. Her name is Mrs. Mary E. Nash. She was nominated by the lowa Greenbackers for the position of Superintendent of Education. In her letter declining the nomination she says: “lam a wife and a mother, and have a home to take care of, which oc cupies my entire time, and forbids all thought of neglecting it for any political honor, especially when the chance of securing the honor is as questionable as it is in lowa outside the Republican party. I have never appeared in public and never sought notoriety in any di rection, believing that, if I make my home what it should be, my mission as a true woman will be filled. This being so, while I do not question the kind in tention of the gentlemen, they certainly had no right to take my name from my home and hold it up for the State to read, and put me in the role of an office seeker, and which by no means belongs to me, and which, under no circum stances, would I consent to accept. In addition to this, my political flag, if it were to float at all, would be found in the other camp, and while I cannot vote, and do not wish to, I would not desert my colors for office.” These Albany corrupters of our youth, says the Hartford Times, will have to take further lessons from their great Republican exemplars at Washington before they can hope to shine-*-or else the price at Albany ia lower than it has been at the national capital. Senator Sessions thought he had got Bradley for $2,000; but he should have considered that Garfield, as Chairman of the appro priations, was once paid $5,000 for a corrupt job. The Albany $2,000 was to beat Conkling; the De Golyer $5,000 was to open the Treasury to the tune of about a million to a plundering ring. Garfield, when exposed, called it a pro fessional “fee.” Sessions calls it “a d—d lie.” Both were evidently annoyed. A Fretty Good Hint.— The Macon Wesleyan Christian Advocate says: “Some people in Georgia have made suddenly a good deal of money by what they call the 'railroad boom,’ ” and. parenthetically hoping it may not prove a “boom erang,” suggests that it is “a good time for them to fulfill promises long made to the Lord, and to men also, to help certain enterprises that are life ing up the church and society in doing God’s work.” When they have lost their gains by the next turn of the wheel, con tinues the Advocate, they will meditate remorsefully upon what they "might have done." The Badical Programme for Georgia The Philadelphia Kews (Rad.) says: “General Longstreet is to have general charge of splitting the Democratic party in Georgia. For this purpose he has been made Marshal of that district by Garfield. The Democracy of Georgia is already in a semi-disorganized condition, torn by rival candidates for power. Longstreet may, by the use of Federal patronage,work to intensify the hostility between the two sections of the party and on their ruins build up an ‘inde pendent party’ of Democrats and Repub licans. This is the plan of campaign.” This may be the plan adopted in Radi cal council for “splitting the Democratic party in Georgia,” but we fail to see in it anything that promises them a reason able prospect of success. It is very evi dent that the projectors are deceived in re gard to the true situation in Georgia, and that they greatly overrate the influences by which they propose to effect their ob ject. In the first place the Democracy of Georgia is not already in a semi-dis organized condition. There exists no division in the ranks of the Democracy of Georgia, and the party to-day is as flmly united in support of the principles .which it professes, in support of honest constitutional government, and in opposition to Radical misrule and corruption, as it ever was. Those who suppose that our State election last fall indicated a state of disorganization in the Democratic party of Georgia, a lack of steadfast devotion to Democratic principles by the mass of our people, are greatly mistaken. There was some dis cord and harmony in the ranks of the party growing out of personal jealousies and aspirations for office, but the over whelming majority by which the candi dates recommended by the majority of the nominating convention were elected, should convince our Radical opponents .‘hat there is no real defection in the ra.iks of the Georgia Democra cy, or that Georgia offers no field for such party-splitting schemers as Mahone, of Virginia. There is no material here out of which to construct an independent party. Democrats have nothing to expect from such a hybrid or ganization of disappointed office seekers and political fag ends, and, as will be seen by the late meeting in Atlanta, the Republicans have too much sagacity to put any faith in such an alliance. Conkliug’s Candidate for Collecter of New York. A Washington dispatch says: “In connection with the New York Collec torship there are some features which have not heretofore been made public. It is said Mr. Conkling and General Grant had reason to believe that if a change was made in the office the ap pointment would be bestowed upon ex- Representative StariD. Mr. Starin has always been a devoted friend of General Grant and ex Senator Conkling, and al ways an extremely liberal contributor to the Republican campaign funds. Dur ing the period of the Chicago Conven tion he occupied a splendid suite of rooms at the Grand Pacific Hotel, and gave his time and money in the interest of the nomination of Gen. Grant. After Garfield’s nomination he, with the other stalwarts, turned in and helped to make his election sure. At the tinv of the inauguration Mr. Starin, at his own ex pense,brought to Washington a battalion of his employes, with flags and banners, to participate in the procession and cere monies incident to the occasion. Mr. Starin is a man of immense wealth, having the ownership and control of almost the entire tugboat business of New York harbor, and a man of re markable business attainments. The emoluments of the Collectorship, of course, had no attraction for him, but the office would have afforded a fine arena for the display of his practical qualities. The suggestion to appoint him, it is said, was received with the greatest apparent approval, and Mr. Conkling, it is said, felt doubly incensed when a man like Starin was passed and a mere politician aopointed.” There has been much discussion in the Cincinnati and Chicago papers for several months whether the Union troops at Shiloh were surprised, owing to the bad generalship of Grant and Sherman, and so on the first day’s battle were defeated, and only saved from an nihilation or capture by the timely arrival of Buell. General Basil W. Duke, of Kentucky, a Confederate officer of excellent reputation, and a gentleman whose word was never ques tioned, has written for the Cin cinnati Gazette an account of the first day’s battle at Pitts burg Landing, in which he makes pretty clear the delinquency and neglect of the Union Generals, which came so near destroying the army. The Gazette accepts the plain story of General Duke as authentic and conclusive. It says that it is written with candor and dignity worthy of history—that it “puts” to shame the partisan, pettyfogging style and untruthfulness of Adam Badcau and his “Memoirs,” and that, strange as it may appear, “the brave troops who saved that narrowed field have to look for jus tice to a Confederate General, as the na tion has also for a general account of the battle.” This maybe called a little rough on Grant and Sherman from the most stalwart of Republican journals. Pension Office.—The Commissioner of Pensions reports 130,000 cases on file in his office awaiting preliminary inform ation, and states that applications are increasing at the rate of one hundred per day. This, says the New York Tri bune, “is alarming,” and “people may well ask when the demands upon the Treasury on account of a war which closed sixteen years ago are going to cease. ” This seems rather strange lan guage from the Tribune. We thought that patriotic relict of Horace Gree ley ready to sacrifice the last dollar in the Treasury to pension the battle scarred heroes of the war for the Union. Geneual Longstiieet.—Our Wash ington special on the subject of the newly appointed United States Marshal for Georgia is copious and explanatory of his present and future political designs. It is comforting to know that General Longstreet does not meditate an immediate campaign for the annihilation of Georgia Democracy, and that in no event will he join bis forces with those of Mabone, for a general crusade. Upon the whole, the General may be pronounced as in statu quo. Looking Forward to Rest.—Regis ter of the Treasury Bruce, says Redfield, expects to remain in Washington most of his days. He purchased to day a fine building site just opposite that upon which Blaine is putting up his $60,000 house, the most aristocratic quarter. He proposes building upon it a modest but tasteful residence. Bruce is very well satUAed with his position. He has to work hard night and day upon the “Windoms,” but he looks forward to months of rest after they are disposed of. THE WORLD’S PROGRESS. The Trade, Commerce and Finances of the World—The Progress made In the Past Decade. A book lately published gives some very interesting figures of the world’s progress during the past decade. The following is one of the tables contained in it: Increase—lß7o-1880. Per Cent. Population 8.76 Agriculture 8.58 Manufactures 18 60 Commerce SS 20 Mining 47.08 Carrymg trade 53.22 Earnings of nations 19 84 Public wealth 10.57 Taxes 22 34 Public debt 43.39 The increase of public debt need cause no alarm, since it is stated that the tangi ble increment of wealth since 1870 would suffice to pay off 88 per cent, of all ex isting national debts. The increase of taxation in the same way has nothing alarming in it. At present great Britain holds the foremost place in industries; but, says the author, “the United States will prob ably pass us in the ensuing decade.” In commerce and shipping, Great Britain leads with £l-45,000,000, while the United States follows close with £129,000,000. Great Britain’s surplus of imports over exports was £61,000,000, while the United States had a surplus of exports over imports of £25,000,000. But if this is pleasing, a great difference exists against us in the carryiug trade at sea. Great Britain carried 52,000.000 tons of merchandise, while the United States only carried 8,250,000 tons — Sweden and Norway, even, passing us with 9,250,000 tons. In population Europe had a surplus of 25,500,000 births over deaths, but immi gration reduced the actual increase to 22,250 000. The Franco-German war cost 819,000 lives, the French loss being 70 per cent, of the total. The increase of population in the United States ex ceeds the aggregate number of inhabit ants in three kingdoms of Europe— namely, Holland, Denmark and Por tugal. More than 100,000 miles of railway were built at a cost of $8,795,000,000. Of these the United States built 41,883 miles at a cost of $2,890,000,000. The United States have 119,000 miles of telegraph, 49.000 miles having been built between 1870 and 1880. Great Britain, with 25,860 miles of line, sent 27,000.000 messages m 1879; we sent 30,000,000 me-eages the same year. In accumulated wealth Great Britain leads with £8,950,000,000, the United States follow with £7,400,000,000, France following with £7.400,000,000, Germany coming up with £6,100,000,000. With regard to the money of the world it is not so easy to make relative wealth so clear without reproducing compli cated tables. One comfort may be found in the fact that for one hundred and forty years we are not likely to fall short of gold for minting. By that time gold coin may lie a curiosity. In Eng fand Sir John Lubbock says only ten shillings of coin are employed for every £IOO of business. In 1889 the world’s trade was conducted with * Per cent. Gold coin £ 554,000.000 19.93 Silver . 269,000,000 961 Ban* notes 773,000.000 27 81 Checks, etc 1,186,000,000 42 65 Totals £ 1,782,000,000 100 00 The armaments of Europe absorb near ly 3 per cent, of the total earnings of the nations. In England each inhabi tant pays $3 60 for the army and navy; we pay $1 per head. Europe keeps 3,000,000 men under arms; the United States 33,000. In its food supply the United States has a surplus of 370,000,000 bushels of errain and 1,076,000 tons of meat. Great Britain has a deficit of 280,000,000 bushels of grain and 602,000 tons of meat. The Washington Star, of Wednesday, says: “The friends of Cadet Whittaker while they have no official information in regard to the finding of the recent court-martial have come to the conclu sion that the statement made in the Star that the verdict is against Whittaker is correct. They will not, however, give up the fight. The evidence has to be re vised by the judge advocate, and the final disposition of the case rests with the President. It is claimed by Whitta ker’s friends that the finding against him is not in accord with the evidence. Up on this claim they will base their efforts with the judge advocate general and the President. Professor Greener, who has been Whittaker’s friend and legal ad viser, during all of his troubles, is still active in his behalf, and does not pro pose to give it up until the matter is finally settled. Professor Greener has never received a cent for his services.” “Local Option” in England. —The British House of Commons passed a resolution a few days ago amounting to an indorsement of the “local option” system, now under discussion in our own country. The resolution affirmed the justice of entrusting local communi ties with the power to protect themselves from the evils of the liquor traffic. It is said that such a law is as much needed in England as in any country in the world, drunkenness being shockingly prevalent among the working people of both sexes. What is most galling to extreme Northern men in Mr. Davis’ book is that he shows his conviction that futnre generations will look upon our civil war just as we look upon the struggle be tween the Cavaliers and Puritans in England, or the Wars of the Roses in the same country. The terms “rebel” and “traitor” will be discarded by his tory when it treats of our great struggle, and the prejudice of the present can not affect the calm judgment of the fu ture. A Frenchman and an Englishman were heard talkmg on the Tunis ques tion. Said the Englishman: “It’s all very well, your preaching the benefits of civilization, but the people don’t want to be civilized. If lam a sweep and like to be biack, of course it may be bad taste, but you have no right to wash me.” “No,” rejoined the Frenchman, “but we wait till we get our sweep in prison, and then we have the right, and we mean to wash him clean.” The following idea of Mr. Jefferson can be studied with profit by all civil service reformers and Christian states men: “Let the General Government be re duced to foreign concerns only, and let our affairs be disentangled from those of all other nations, except as to commerce, which the merchants will manage the better tbe more they are left free to man age for themselves, and our General Government may be reduced to a very simple organization and a very unex pensive one; a few plain duties to be performed by a few servants.” The Work Goes Bravely On.— Our dispatches from Albany indicate that another “foul nest” is about to be un covered in the Republican camp of New York, and Mr. Assemblyman H. H. Tuthill comes to the front as the righteous apostle of discovery. The Goddess of Reason, which was placed on the church altars by the revo lutionists of ’B9 in France, and paraded through the streets of Paris to receive the cheers and obeisance of- the mob, was an effigy modelled upon the face and figure of a woman of great beauty. A report now comes that the model has just died in France at the age of ninety nine years, and that her later years were devoted to rag-picking. The Gagged Russian Press.— The foreign press is free and says what it likes about us, while we dare not men tion many subjects, and can only touch upon others from a certain given point of view. Who, therefore, will give us the credit of sincerity in our opinions and believe them to be the frank expres sion of what we think?— Bt. Petersburg Oolos, HUM COABIH PASSENGER DEPARTMENT.
