The Spoils and the Senatorshlp.
Whii.h the active interest of the masses iu
political affairs cases with the announcement
of the result of a great quadrennial straggle,
the tnoBt arduous labors of the professional
politicians really begin when they are enabled
la conoentrate their energies on the task of
dividing the spoils. In the midst of a popular
contest private jealousies and private ambi
tions must be concealed, but after It is decided
the aspirants for office feel at liberty to reoount
in the most impassioned language the story of
their personal hopes, fuart, and hatreds. Ap
plicants for leading plaoeg nnder Grant's
administration are already becoming as plenty
as blackberries, and a thousand faouifal argu
ments are Invented to prove that Cormorant
No. 1 is a better fellow than Cormorant No. 2,
or that the couutry and the Republican party
can be better served by enriching offloe-seekar
A than by pandering to the ambition of olfije
srekor 1$. Men who made speeohes that no
body listened to are fully convinced thit
Grant carried Pennsylvania solely by the aid
of their eloquence, and men who bore torohed
or marshalled processions think it little less
than treason to doubt that they illuminated
the way and opened the road to the grand
triumph of the third of November. As long as
parties exist these a9j irations will continue; and
In a nation where every school-boy is taagh t
that the Presidency is within the scope of his
ambition, it is natural that thousands of en
thusiastio spirits should feel confident that
they can prepare themselves for a higher
flight by revelling for a lime in the delights of
subordinate offices. Experience soon teaches
the dullest aspirants, however, the immense
disproportion between the number of places to
be filled and the number of applicants, and
that the golden key which unlooks the oaves
of power Is political influence. A curious
chapter could be written on the mysterious
methods by which it is acquired, and the
varied and innumerable artifices resorted to
for the purpose of producing in the proper
quarter, at the propitious moment, the im
pression which is necessary to secure a coveted
appointment. The mo.-t common and essen
tial step is to obtain the active friendship o'
influential political lexers, and their endorse
ment ia usually an indispensable requisite of
success. Those who secure the sincere aid of
the Congressmen of a dominant party who are
their immediate representatives, thereby gain
an important point. But although it may ba
conclusive in respect to a minor olass of
offices appertaining strictly to the re
spective districts, it may prove of
comparatively little service, unless strongly
supported by other influences, to those who
aspire to iuapoitaut national positions. In
many conflicts the word of a United States
Senator carries great weight. For this ami
other reasons the impending Senatorial oon
teBt in Pennsylvania is invested with deep lu
tereet. A number of clashing aud honorable
individual ambitions will struggle for asueui
ancy. Among the candidates already named
are Glenn! W. Soofleld, Galusha A. Go,
Benjamin Harris Brewster, James K. Mxr-
head, Wayne MoVVlgh, Thomas Wiiiiatns, add
William II. Kemble, and other aspirants m ty
be expected to enter the field. Ex-Governar
Curtin and John W. Forney, who were
candidates at the last Senatorial
election, do not appear to be now aotivtily
pressing their claims; but their names are In
cluded in some of the lists. Grow, who was
also a candidate in 18(37, received at that time
three or four vo.es in the Senatorial caucus,
and he is making an earnest struggle to in
crease the number of his supporters. Young
as he is, however, he already belongs to the
past rather than the present. lie gained
his original prominence as a Representative of
the famous Wilmot district, and after becom
ing Speaker of the Blouse he retired lato com
parative obourity, from which he was scarcely
drawn forth by his unsuccessful attempt to
gain the support of the Pennsylvania dele
gation for the Vice-PreBidency, and his
temporaty prominenoe as Chairman of the
Republican State Central Committee. lie has
strengthened his position, and will probably
exerolBe some influence with President Grant,
and be enabled to obtain a good appointment
for himself if he desires it. but hU electlou as
United States Senator is extremely doubtful.
Glenni W. 8cofleld, who represents the Erie
distrlot, is one of the most talented and influ
ential members of Congress; and if the con
test depended solely on qualifications as a de
bater and knowledge of publlo affairs, he
would be a formidable candidate. Any strength
that may be displayed by James K. Moorhead
or Thomas Williams will be due rather to
local reputation and to an alleged claim that
the West is entitled to the Senator than to an
enthusiastia desire of the people to secure
their servioes. Wayne McVeigh is a talented
and eloquent lawyer of Chester county, who
served with distinction in the State Leglsla
tore several years ago, and who subsequently
acted as Chairman of the Republican State
Committee in 18G3, when Governor Curtin
was re-eleoted. From that time up to the
fall of 18G6 he was rsoognized as a leading
friend of Governor Curtin, but he aston
ished friends and foes about the time of the
famous Senatorial eleotion of 1867 by sud
denly beooming the political champion
of Senator Cameron. Bdnjamia Harris Uraw.
ster is well known to all our reader, owl his
intellectual abilities have been attentat io
many a bittr contest in the ooarta aud in the
political arena. William II. Kemble Herred
several tetms as State Treasurer, signalizing
his administration by the payment of the over
due State debt. He possesses the advantage
of an intimate acquaintance with the publio
men of the State, and the experience be ac
quired, as a oandi latefi r the Treasurership, ia
winning the four successive legislative cau
cuses, cannot fail to prove highly rueful if he
becomes an active aspirant for the Senator
ship. Independent of these Indtvldaal con'.ests,
many old politicians will be deeply inter
ested in the question whether the new Sant
tor shall be the ally of Senator Cameron or
his antagonist. Cameron has given so miny
proofs of his adroitness aud poverinmauU
pula'ing administrations, thtt his rlvaU may
as well give up the OiinteH if In is reluforoed
by the incoming Senator. Tuey will,
therefore, we presume, make earnest
fcffotts to secure the electioq of an
anti-Cameron candidate, or of an
aspirant who will at least maintain an
independent attitude. As the cliques no
Stand, Cameron can point to his triumph in
the last Senatorial coolest as a proof of hi
power, while his adversaries can boast that
they carried the last State Convention for
Curtin as a candidate for the Vice-Presid.-noy,
in spite of Cameron's opposition. The im
pending Senatorial contest may furnish a
decisive test of relative strength, and powerful
motives will incite the ambitious men of the
State in the approaohing struggle.
ltt a Man's Life Worthless ?
By an act of Assembly, approved Maroh 13,
16 C7, it is provided that all persons who aid
committed to answer at the bar of the Crimi
nal Court a serious oharge, must be put upon
their trial before the expiration of the fourth
term of the court thereafter held, or be dis
charged. The terms being monthly, the trial
must be fully and formally inaugurated within
four months of the time of commitment. If
the prisoner demand delay for any purpose,
or if the sickness of any of the parties to the
case, or any other legitimate and reasonable
cause not within the control of the representa
tives of the Commonwealth, render such delay
necessary, then, and then alone, is the ajoused
deprived of the benefit of the statute. This law
is certainly a reasonable one, demanded by
the strict rale of justioe, and necessary to the
full protection of all innocent men from vexa
tious and unfounded persecutions. The limit
of four months is as fair a limit as could be
fixed, giving the prosecuting attorney ample
time for examining the case, and not exacting
of the acoused a penalty of excessive severity
in case he should be found innocent. Bat the
statute is explicit and precise in its wording,
and if none of the contingencies named above
occur, the accused is entitled, nnder the law,
to his fall discharge at the expiration of four
months without a serious attempt to discover
his innocence or guilt. By reason of its pre
cision a merit by far too rare in our criminal
legislation a heavy responsibility ia thrown
upon the prosecuting officers of the Common
wealth, of whom it deiuauds prompt and zeal
How that demand has been met in a case
which has just been closed before Jadg
Peirce, is a question which the law-abiding
citizens of Philadelphia request Mr. William
B. Macn, the late District Attorney,' to
On the afternoon of the 221 of June last, iu
broad daylight, Michael Gallen met a violent
death near a house at the corner of Ninth and
Manilla streets, in the Seoond ward, at which
a Democratic delegate eleotion was in progress.
When Gallen attempted to deposit his vote,
he was challenged by some one in the large
crowd grouped about the window, on the
ground that he was a fugitive from justice.
His vote was received, however; and the man
then had his revenge upon his opponents by
challenging the next voter who presented
himself. This was Michael MoBride. The
following then occurred, aooording to the tes
timony of James llagen, an inspector acting
at the eleotion:
"Mclirlde said, 'You , do ycu challenge
me V aiid pulled oulu fcuifeantl caweatU illen,
who drew back; I think tie struck Uallen lu
the bearl; (iallen fell back, but Mclirlde kept at
him, striking him u a butcher alubx a calf; there
waH.no poHMibiilty of (lallen escaping; Oallea
bad nothing iu his bands at the time; lie after
waidB got away, and when be came back to
tUe window bad a club; Uuwualnen covered
all ovbr with blood, ana bis h'-ad cut; (Thoma)
Urlevelaud, at the time Me f ride was caltiatf
away, was nring etones at OWleu, and I am
positive oua struck him; (Tiioiurh J ) Holland
pulled out a black-Jack and hit Uallen als'j; I
can't say wbere; he bUuck at bis bead, but t
don't know whether he bit him; wheu Gilleu
came back be said, 'I could lick all you people,
but I am killed now, and Mike Mclirlde killed
me'; be then threw tbe club at some one."
The murderous weapon wielded by MoBride,
according to the same witness, "had a long
blade;" and, according to another, "it was like
a lance a long, curious looking kniTe." The
latter witness, Francis McElhone by name,
who had been in the company of Gallen for
some time, also testified:
"He (McBrldc) was carrying the knife open
In bis band all the time b lore tbe tltfht: I
thought he wan goinc to murder some one; he
looked full of it, I saw Mike Mclirlde
put a k title Into Gallen during tbe tight."
The Press of June 23, from which we have
extraoted the above evldenoe, because its re
port was the fullest and-- most explicit, filling
an entire column, gives the testimony of fifteen
different witnesses; and states, in conclusion,
that several others were present, but it was
not deemed necessary by the Coroner to exa
mine them. The verdlot returned by the
Coroner's jury was as follows:
That tbe said Michael Gallen came to bis
death from a stab loflioted at the bands of Ml-
chtW McBride. Jnne 22. 18W, at Nlntn and Mi
nlllastrtett; and we also find Uenuis MoBride,
Joseph Grievelnnd, and TUornas J. Holland
accetsory to the fact."
We have given the details of this disgrace
ful encounter, because they are so clear and
positive, unless more than a dozen men were
guilty of the most unblushing perjury. They
present even more than a prima facie case- of
murder; itjwculd coem te be isocntsetabie, and
not even lacking the element of malloe, for on
of the combatants was parading a long and
dangerous-looking knife before the fight com
menced, "looking full of murder." And yetf
with these faots before him he certainly reads
the Ym (1) Mr. Mann, the late Diatriot
Attorney, permitted the full time allowed
by thi (tatute to elapse without
taking such action in the matter as would
prevent Judge Peroe yesterday from granting
an unqualified dlsoharge to all the persons
implicated, because it was his imperative duty
to do so under a law which is bath just
and merciful. Ia striking contrast
with the oase of Michael Gallen
are those of Gottleib Williams and George W.
Winnemore. Neither of these miserable crea
tures were politicians, the one being a crazy
rpiritualist, and the other a paralytlo imbecile;
and both were literally hunted to the death
by the zealous District Attorney. We
do not find fault with Mr. Manu
for the course pursued by him in either
of these latter cases. Ilia action may have
been, too hurried in both instances; bat there
was ample remedy in the oourt aui the I? se.
culive of the State, and hli prompt
ness and zeal inspired at the
time a terror in the hearts of reokless
men, which was as salutary as it was neoes
sary. Nor do we condemn Mr. Mann in the
course pursued by him with reference to the
Gallen case, before he has had an opportunity
to be heard on the subject. We simply state
the faots in the oase, and give expression
to the voice of the entire community, which
demands and will Insist upon an explanation.
Tbe Uest Government for Spain.
It is a significant faot that not only the most
intelligent, cool-headed, and experienced of
the leaders of the Spanish revolution, but
nearly the entire press of the United States,
have pronounced a republican form of govern
ment for that country to be inexpedient and
impracticable at the present time. There was
a time when the majority of Americans were
not content with enjoying the blessings of
their free institutions and chanting their
prakes, but they were ambitious to have
them imitated all over the world; and in the
minds of many there was an idea that it was
the mission of the American people not only
to maintain their own form of government
intact, but also to propagate republicanism as
the best means of securing the happiness of
the human race. Have we retrograded in our
ideas, or lost confidence in our boasted insti
tutions, that we now hesitate to hold them
up as objects for the admiration aud imi
tation of the Spanish people? or is it that
the wisdom of a mature national growth
and the experiences of an emb'ttered oivll
strife within our own borders have taught us
that republicanism may not be the best thing
at all times and nnder all ciroumstances,
Fourth- of-July orations to the contrary not
withstanding ? The great object of all good
government should be to secure to the citi
zen the largest personal liberty consistent
with the general welfare. We have not lost
faith in the republican form of government,
and the events of the last ten years have more
than ever convinced us that the free institu
tions of these United States are the best cal
culated for Keouring the "inalienable rights of
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Whether under less favorable ciroumstances
a republic would be a success, is a question
of statesmanship for intelligent men to con
sider in an intelligent manuer, and it is out
of the range of the mere party politician or
the buncombe orator.
The unanimous opinion of all unprejudiced
atd thoughtful men is that of -all the coun
tries in Europe Spain is, with the exoeption
perhaps of Russia, the least fitted for the
enjoyment of the benefits of a republican form
of government at the present time. The
responsibilities which free institutions entail
upon every citizen can only be understood
and appreciated by a course of eduoation; and
it is certainly no disparagement to republican
ism to say that it is inexpedient for the people
of Spain to leap from a bigoted and blighting
despotism, which weighed them down
body and soul, into the light of the
largest liberty, at one bound, or to expect
them to be prepared for such a transition.
What Spain wants, after having been relieved
from the weight of Bourbon misrule, is a long
period of rest and quiet under a constitutional
government, that will guarantee the freedom
of the press, freedom of speech, the free exer
cise of every form of religion, and yet be
strong enough to restrain the excesses of fana
tias and ambitious men who seek to stir up
dissension for the purpose of accomplishing
their own selfish purposes. We believe
that these objects could be gained at
the present time under a liberal con
stitutional monarchy, with an able and
enlightened man on the throne, better
than in any other way. rf hen the Spaniards
have enjoyed the benefits of free publio
schools, uninfluenced and uncontrolled by
priestly dictation, a free press that represents
every shade of public opinion, and which gives
all the news of the day without distorting it
to suit particular ends as some of our Demo
cratic contemporaries are Iu the habit of doing
and they have become aooustomed to ex
pressing their preferences and opinions at the
ballot-box, and peacefully submitting to the
will of the majority, whatever it may be,
then can the idea of a republlo be entertained
with safety and advocated without reserve.
There is to-day a strong republican party
in Spain, and notwithstanding the faot that
the more cautious and prudent of the revolu
tionary leaders would prefer to take gradual
steps in that direotion rather than eadang r
tLe good work which they have commenoed f o
well by too much haste, it is possible that
they may be overruled by the voloe of popular
opinion. And if the majority of the peoile
ire anxious to try the experiment, let the
great Republlo of the West give them. 'every
encourage me&t and lid them Cod speed. The
prudence, good sense, and praotioal states
manship which have characterized the revolu
tionary movement thus far, and the modera
tion shown by the people, inspire as
with hope for the futare; and whatever they
may deoide upon as the best for their own
interests, they will have the sympathies and
good wishes of the Amerloan people. That
the Spanish revolution may be the beginning
of the regeneration of Europe is a thing to
be Loped; but we would not have the eause
of liberty retarded by the undue haste of
reformers, whose ideas, perhaps right in the
abstract, may not be applicable to particular
oases. We advocate republicanism as an
ultimate aim for the Spaniards and oiher
peoples who have suffered, or who do suffer,
from bad governments and detpotio rulers!
but whether it is the beet thing under all
ciroumstances ia a question that is worthy of
