The Matter of the Presidential
The Senate seems deeply in earnest
in its desire to pass a bill at this
session providing for tbe Presides
tial succession, though mnch objec
tion is manifested to tho proposition
of Mr, Hoar which provides for tak
ing up the officers of the Cabinet in
regular sequence as successors to
the Vice President,acoording to rank,
beginning with Secretary of State,
and ending with tfie Secretary of the
It will be remembered by our read
ers that the Constitution only pro
Tides for the succession of the Vice
Presilent, leaving Congress to ar
range for further contingencies
this Congress did, early in the life of
the Republic by making the line of
descent in the event of the death of
both the elected officers, first in the
President pro tern of the Sonnte, and
in the event of there being none,next
is the Speaker of the House, the in
cumbent to act as President until a
President should be elected.
Our eyerience of 1881 possibly
to be repeated in 1883 proved the
possibility of a contingency arising
in which there would be neither
President pro tem nor Speaker.lienoe
it is regarded as essential to amend
or supplement the old law nt the
present session, and Congress seems
determined to do its duty in that be
half, though much difference of opin
ion is apparent at. the outset of the
Mr, Hoar in his loading speech
last wek took the position among
others, that the President pro tem of
the Senate in assuming the office of
"acting" President, retained his sent
as presiding officer in th Chamber ;
and claimed that this double duty
was more than any man was equal
to ; while Senator Morrill interposed
the suggestion that as a Senator he
would be called upon to vote on the
question of confirming his own nom
inations, in Executive session. Mr.
Morgan anil others alluded to the
fact that I ho term of thii present
President pro tempore, Judge Davis
ixiiired on the iili of next March'
and th.it if tnddunly, by nvX of Prov
idence or otherwise ho w:is culled to
the Presidency, his term us 'ucling
President'' would end with liis Sena
torial term, and a now ililltma would
present itself.
It scorns to us that Senator Hoar
overlouks the important fttct that an
"acting Pre.idoiil"wonld not possess
the rights of a President pro 'em, of
the Senate ; while General Morgan
ignores tho clause in the existing law
that actually, whether so intended or
not, gives to the "acting President''
an absolute term of office.
The President pro tempore of the
Senate, in the event of the death of
the President of the Unted Slates
and the elevation of the Vice Presi
dent to the Chief Magistry, becomes
"acting Vico President," but he as
sumes no new functions for the rea
son that there are no important
duties pertaining to the position ex
cept those incident to presiding over
the Senate. But in the event of tbe
death of the President who was eloct-
ed by the people to Mie office of Vice
President, the President pro tem of
the Senate becomes "acting Presi
dent,'' and as "acting President" of
the United States can only assume
the functions that legitimately per
tain to that high station, and must
for the time being surrender the
gavel and all rights, powers and
privileges incident to a Senator or a
pro tem presiding officer.
If, as in tbe possible case of Judge
Davis, he should be called to the
"acting" Presidency of the United
States in the last days of his Senatqs
rial term, he would not vacate the
White House when his term as Sena
tor in Congress expired i for the law
providing for his succeeding to the
Presidency made by Congress in
pursuance of Constitutional author
ity and requirement provides for an
actual term, for the "acting Presi
dent:'' That he shall so act until a
President and Vice President shall
be elected ; and if he was actually
President pro tent, when installed, he
is "acting President" of the United
States, regardless of the duration of
his Senatorial term, until a Constitu
tional President has been elected and
inaugurated. And if in the mean
time his Senatorial term expires, his
State may proceed to fill the vacancy
in tho customary way.
If on the other hand the President
pro torn, who becomes acting Presi
dent is a "long term" Senator, his
Senatorial functions are for the time
suspended; for tho reason that a
President of the United States,
whether actual of "acting," cannot
perform Senatorial duties, though a
President pro tem, acting as Vice
President, cat In this event his
seat in the Senate must remain tem
porarily empty, for no vacancy exists
that will authorize a Legislature to
elect or a Governor to appoint : but
his State is supposed to be fully
compensated during the interregs
um by the honor conferred upon
her in the temporary elevation of
one of her sons,
This appears to us to be a fair
statement of the case.
The Proponed TranNl'cr of the
Miifuul Bureau.
Mr. Betzkoover, of Fenn,, has intro
duced a bill in the House to transfer the
signal servioa from the War to the In
terior Department. There- are mnny
reason b why this bill should not piibB :
Iu the first plaoe it would greatly in
crease t!.e number of civil employees in
the service of the Qovernment, and tins
alone should defeat it, for the very exist
ence of free institutions is now endan
gered by the huge proportions to which
the "civil list" has beeu swolen. Iu the
second place its efficiency would be iui
paired by placing it under the control
of a political branch of Qovernment
whore favor and iuflneuoo would control
in the appointment of the corps. In the
third place it is an important army branch
in time of war henoe its personal should
be as nearly as possible confined to army
men, and lastly it not only affords em
ployment to many offioers and men who
are necessarily retained upon the army
rolls, but itsjpeouliar demands are met by
the oouiBe of education pursued ut West
We cannot see one good reason for
taking the chance of debauoking this
important branch of the public service,
while we can see many for maintaining
the 8tiiu8 quo.
We now know that vessels once came
to Nutohez and loaded directly from that
port, and iir citizens in keeping with the
progress of the uge. we one it to the fu
ture commercial greamess of our State
to build up some great city m our own
borders; let lis center commercially nt
some point. This plan of leaving the
prairie belt of North Missimippi depend
ent on Jlobile.the Delta on New Orleans,
and North Mississippi npou Memphis
parcels out our State until we have no
commercial unity. Hailroads are valua
ble, but the great cities of the world are
ou the waUir courses, and the creation of
soma great commercial neuter is Missis
sippi's greatest need. inclcson Missis

We cunnot very well see how North or
East Mississippi can bo benefitted by
eliippiug cotton to Natchez, and while
we have great faith in the future of that
beautiful city, wo believe that it must
look to the river valley ou both sides
for the trade- that is to sustain it. As to
the prairie belt, it has long since ceased
to be dependent upon Mobile, Its three
principal shipping points, Aberdeen,
Columbus and Meridian, and we suppose
the other towns, ship the groat bulk of
their cotton directly to the Eastern mills,
or through Mobile to New Orleans.
ColumbiiB and Aberdeen buy almost
every bale of cotton that reaches them
nnd it is usually re-sold to the buyers
for the mills, from the tables of local
commission merchants, and never chan
ges hands after leaving our towns until
it goes upon the market iu tho shape of
manufactured goods. As to imports, we
buy nil of onr dry goods in New York;
all of our irou in St Louis and Pittsburg;
all of our boots and shoes in Massachu
setts; our drugs in Philadelphia and
Nfew York; our flour from the mill
agents; our whisky in Cincinnati and
Louisville; our bacon and groeeries in
Chicago nud St Louis; our sugar, molas
ses and coffee iu New Orleans and Mo
bile, and our milliue.-y nud fancy goods
in New York. The stocks that are car
ried by merchants iu this portion of the
State necessitate buying in the lending
markets of the country, for we have no
city or town in tho State that boasts
store that could furnish a first class
Aberdeen or Columbus establishment
with a full Block without selling itself
Thanks to the generosity of the
great American philanthropist, Mr
Corcoran, of Washington, the ashes
of John Howard Payne, the author
of "Homo, Sweet Home" have been

and are now on their way to the Cap-
italof his native country, where they
will be interred in a lovely lot in Oak
Hill Cemetery that has been puri
chased and prepared for their recep
tion, by Mr. Corcoran.

Oltl KnglHiMl's Way.
The great powers of Europe have
little cause to complain if England's
mannor of adjusting the Egyptian
difficulties and arranging the nffairs
of that ancient country, does not
suit them. She invited tbem all to
take part with her before she sent a
ship or a soldier to Alexandria, and
inasmuch as they disdained to share
the dangers and expense incident to
the war, she does not propose to in
vite them to a division of the fruits
of the enterprise.
It was all well enough for the offi
cial journals of Russia to announce,
just after the enpturo of Alexandria,
that the Great Powers "must be iu
vited to share in any programme
arranged for the future govornmont
of Egypt," but now the war is over
but the invitation to confer has not
been issued, and will not be issued ;
and old mothor England drives right
along in her accustomed way fixing
up things to suit herself and the in
terests of her own people, regard
less of the likes or dislikes of Russia
or any other outside power.
In a oiigreNHin:ti a State Ollicer
Oraleueral Ollicrr.
Many who are opposed to the ex
isting law regulating the "Presiden
tial succession,'' base their objection
upon the assumption that the Presi
dent pro tempore of the Senate and
the Speaker of tho House lire both
State officers, representing their
States in their respective Chambers
and not the body of the Republic. In
opposition to this theory Senator
Lamar take the following position:
"The doctrine that a Senator is not
an officer of the United States but of
a State is foundod npen tho fact that
be is chosen by a blate. A very
slight examination will show the
fallncy of Ithis idea: The President
of the United States is chosen by the
electors of each State, is he therefore
au officer of each State ond not of
tbe Federal Government! The Sens
ator is chosen by the Legislature of
a Sfale.not bv virtnre of any author
ity inherent in the State's sovereign"
ty, but by virtnre of a power dclo
gated to the Stato by the Federal
Constitution. The choosing of a
Senator or Uopresftntative il( not ono
of the reserved rights of a Siutej it
is delegated to the Stale by the Fei
ernl Constitution, and is as pmely a,u"" hm,,',, "'ry, nut nave
delegated power, as Hint of levying j no doubt but that quite a number of
taxes or declaring war is a power
delegated to Congress no one of
these powers would have ixisted butl0f having saved more hay (lining the
for the Constitution. Bt.,iSou than the gentleman from
"Tim Setiulo of the United Slates j ,,,. , :B 1.,.,i;,,.,i witi.
constitutes no part of the machinery
of a State Government, nnd a Sena
tor cannot exercise a single function
of State administration.
"Tho Legislature of a State is
designated by tho Federal Constitu
tion as the body of Electors for
choosing Senators ; so are the Presi
dential Eelectois of each State di ss
ignatod by tho Constitution us the
are the Electors to chose a Repre
sentative in the lower brunch of Con
gress designated.
"In ono case the Electoral body is
created by the Constitution, in the
other it is designated, but both 1
bodies derive all their authority from
the Constitution of the United States,
alone, and therefore those who are
elected aro officers of tho creating
power and not of the States to which
they are accredited."
This argument seems to us sound
and logical, and to overcome the ob
jections of those who claim that if
the Presidential office in the event of
the death of both the President and
Vice President, passes to the Presi
dent jiro tem of the Senate or Speak
er of tho House, it goes from a Fed
eral officer to a "State officer.''
Oct of the last sixty murder (rials in
Chicago, but one resulted in an execu
tion. It would be a good idea if Chicugo
should undertake a few jobs in the way
of hanging without the'formula of trial,
and begin upon that wretch Hcrr Most,
who has been appealing to the trumps
and vngrants with which Chicago, like
oil other great cities, is abundantly
cursed, to "kill" nnd "rob" nnd "burn."
The timely application of a few yards of

The Eufanla Bulletin relntes that Mr.
McDowell has recently brought from
his plantation in Henry county, Ala.,
thiiteeu large bales of neatly packed
crab grass bay.. It amounted to thirty
tons, and was the second crop of hay on
a forty aero meadow. lie will realize
from this (15 per ton or (COO for the
orop. Speaking of his manner of pack
ing Mr. McDowell made the following
statement to the Bulletin ;
"The hay iu question is pnoked the
size of cotton bales ou n cotton press,
aud is bound with wire bought nt n
hardware store iu this oily. The hay m
siored at a warehouse in Enfaula, nnd
you can rest assured the odor of it is
very pleasant. It is remarkably clean
aud tine, nnd will oouininud the highest
market priee. Good hay sells as high
as (:)D n ton, McDowell's yield was
comparatively small, thirty tons to forty
acres, yet it will pay him about (!5 an
ncrp, after a good crop of oats had been
produced on tho same meadow land."
Here is a uew industry which prom
ises sure and largo results for the pro
pie of the Houth. The success Mr. Mc
Dowell has attained in packing crab
grata bay, can bo attained by every
platter iu this seotion with little trouble
nnd expense. The grass is a native of
the'South, grows wild, and makes ex
oellrut hay. What is needed and whal
can be easily secured everywhere is the
ineins of packing and storing. Nearly all
our grocery and feed stoiva in Columbus
am now filled with Timothy nnd other
kinds of hay from tho North and West.
If ur farmers nnd planters would adopt

nnd made the propositi, n In Sheehy to
sell out. He said Polk had plenty of
money j Ihathe had made this s, ake, etc.
To this Sheehy assented, if ( 'nnicron
would show him I'olk. This Cameron1
agreed to do, and led Sheehy over ton
bunch of mcsipiitc ami prickly pear.
There Polk was found concealed. Shceliv
if once nrresled him. Cameron told
Polk of his Inlk with Sheehy, aud

to let him go, but having him safe in
hand I he faithful olli answered, "No,
sir: I am ll IMiiled Stales oilicer. faithful
to my superiors and invsulf, and tin
money can buy me." lie then look them
lo Webb Station, mounted the north
bound train, came to Catullo, changed
off to the south bound, returned to the
neighborhood of Laredo and placed
nurds over his men. He telegraphed
Marshal (iosling at Austin, and that gen
tleman arrived in Laredo Wednesday
morning. Sheehy had released Cameron,
but Marshal (Iosling iinmedialely order
ed him under arrest and had him search

i'olk, who, when be saw him. was great
ly surprised to see one whom lie had
known from childhood, and greeting him
cordially he said: "Weil, this sell lea il.
I cannot deny it any longer, " and pro-
eded to loll all aliout ois defalcation,
his attempted esenpe, and low he had
bought Price mm ( aim -run, unit now

to laud him on the other sih" lie ex
pressed a willingness lo return to Ten
nessee, and begged Mi. (loslilig to lake
him right on iu u hurry, and not wail for
the coining agents ; he preferred logo
with one lie knew would treat him kind
ly. He then said he gave up all hopes
of escape, and would go along quietly,
hut he was loud ill his denunciation of u
number of

he gets home (lint will stal l lc I he people
of Tennessee; that Ids victims will coin-
prise ail (dasses, from Supreme Court
Court judges down. After the arrest
Marshal Gosling chartered nit engine,
and with Deputy sin chy and Morrill,
started for this place wil h his prisoners.
He telegraphed Coutity-Ai loi ncy Cook
to have Price nrresled, and u warrant
was sworn out. Arriving here, Cameron
was turned over to Sheriff McCall and
placed ill jail, and Marshal (iosling took
Polk to a privale residence. In conver
sation with Joe Sheehy, Polk said he was
shot t jl.'W.IKiU; that ll coiilldeutial clerk
got away with i,Vi,ihi, nnd a like amount
was spent trying to capture him. Vim
Polk is now on his way to Saltillo, Mexi
co, whore they hii-o S:.Mll,e.(Hl invested iu
Two l'liotogniplis ol I'olli.
Tho Cincinnati Keirs says of I'olk,
that "he was a gonial companion, with
a remarkably bright vein of sparkling
wit. He had been onco exceedingly
dissipated, but for twenty years lie
bad practiced absolute total abstis
nence, Ho was a in in without vices,
but not the ordinary classleuding or
DHiilin-singing defaulter. He was
social, jovial, ran with the boys, but
spent money moderately, and joined
in none but the most innocent pleas
tires, no matter what others did. He
was in no way extravagant, and yet
be full. Urn case is as sad a one us
was ever recorded. We do not be
lieve he ever did a dishonest thing
in his life before. That docs not les
sen the crime, but it saddens it, nnd
it warns him who viiunloth himself to
beware, When the war ended, leav
ing Polk out of service and poor, he
went to w.wk, nnd partly in a coun
try newspaper and partly on a farm
mado a meager but decent living, six
years ago ho was elected treasurer of
the State, tthout. business bubits
or business knowledge simple mind
ed man, as simple ns a child, he fell
into the bands of the rings and
sharks which invest a State whore
people are noblo and honest,bogniled
by demagogues to believe that, 'hey
ought not to pnv np an honest debt,
or having honestly settled it ought
to readjust it, I he result of the pol
icv has made tho State a prey to rings
and Bhaiks of all parties nnd factions
Simplc-mindod, nnd simple in his
tastts.not strong iu will or exceeding
strong in capacity, he was a pure and
honorablo man until beguiled nnd led
beyond his depth by designing
knaves. It may lie that he deserves
no mercy, and will receive none at
the hands of those who 'gio poor fra.
ilty name,' but no manly man will
deny sympathy. Tho sharks who iir
volved him in speculation, who prom
ised that no loss should befall; who
fleeced him, are tho criminals. I'olk
cannot get frco of deep blame for as,
euiuing that ho could honestly use
funds not his own if he was sure he

could replace them; but his was a
liprhter crime, for there was not the I
illent tf) defraud, Still, it was1
j.efonsible, the highest crime i
., , , .
Hotter a popular governineut, a crime 1
against the people."
