In another olumn will b ound the reasons
assigned by Got, Wilts for not signing the
act to reorganlse the local government of
New Orleans. However muoh the most en.
thusiastio advocate of aohange in the form of
our municipal government may havedesired
a new charter, It Is quite certain that they
never contemplated the passage of an act so
contrary to the spit it or our Institutions, and
which trespassc.i no.rossly upon the rights of
the Individual citzlen as the bill under con
elderatlon.
The bill is In direct conflict with article I
of the constitution (Billof Rights), which de
fines the powers of government, viz:
Its only leaitimate rod is to protect the oltl
zRnu in the enjytsent o. Ife. llbertt, proporty,
and when It assumes other functions it Is usur
pation and oppression.
In the face of this constitutional provision
It is sought to invest a board of aldermen
with power to suppress the amusements of
the people, newspapers, bakers, Jewelers,
ohemists, cotton classers, painters, carpen
ters, printers, engravers, coopers, architects,
builders and mechanics, hospitals, saloons,
beer houses, and hundreds of callings that
affect the altizen in all the relations of life, and
to fix the rates of wagonage, drayage and cart
age.
No less objectionable is the attempt to em
po wer the council to declare any business or
property a nuisance, and without process of
law to enter upon and take possession of
It.
SBetion 2s , which provides that no contract
shall be awarded to any but a citizen of
New Orleans, is most unwise and would sub
ject the city to great loss In the future in
carrying out any system of Improvements,
as it debars the clty from purchasing from
first hands articles not manufactured hero.
Section 80 would destroy the power of the
Council to carry on the very government
which the act attempts to create, by giving a
preference to the payment of old claims over
current expenses.
Section 87 embodies an extraordinary grant
of power to seize persons and papers in all
questions where the interests of the city are
involved.
Section 22 empowers the Councill to sell all
parks or other public grounds belonging to
the city, and thus rob the pIople of any fu
ture benefit from the grounds which they
have made such sacrifices to pay for, in the
hone that one day they could be embellished.
The oact in question violates the constitu
tion In attempting the enactment of special
legislation upon subjects which are general
in character, and presents to the reader a
specimen of crude legislation, which can only
be accounted for by the hasty and lnconsilder
ate manner In which it was amended ani
passed through the House.
It will be remembered that all but a few
sections of the bill were passed In the House
within a few minutes time, without debate or
consideration, and that the bill as a whole
reached the Benate too late to receive that
careful examination which the Senate ap
pears to have given the mass of the business
whlch originated in the lower house.
Complaints have been raade against the
power vested in the administrative bureaux,
but this act would create the most despotic
government that was ever empowered to op
press a people, with questionable means for
promoting the happiness or welfare of the
citizen, but with power, in improper hands,
for incalculable evil. Under these circum
stances the Governor of the State has but
performed an imperative duty In withhold
ng hise asignature to the act.
FIRST 0ONGRE88IONAL DISTRIOT.
It has been a matter for sincere regret with
all well wishers for the success of the Demo
cratic party that serious differences of opin
ion have arisen concerning the action of the
delegations to the State convention from the
First District in assuming the right to
nominate a Congressman. As the DEMO
(CAT stated heretofore, the objections
do not appear to rest against the
distinguished gentleman who has been named
for the position; on the contrary, his frequent
selection by that district, his recent election
to succeed a Senator from this State, and his
recognized pokitlon and services, preclude
any discussion on that point. Nevertheless
it must be admitted that discontent exists
with the people who must vote, and upon
whom depends success in the coming election.
We are not prepared to say to what extent
this discontent exists, and the DEMOCRAT has
refrained from saying anything that would
in any way increase the ascerbity of feeling,
with the hope and belief that some way
would be found to correct the matter and re
store harmony.
From the correspondence in another col
umn it would appear that Gen. Gibson recog
nizes the doubt existing in the minds of both
friends and opponents as to the power of the
delegates to do more than select delegates to
the Cincinnati Convention, and with that self
sacrificing spirit which is worthy of a gen
tleman who has received such high honors
from the Democratic party, he plainly indi
cates to his political friends the propriety and
necessity of inaugurating measures that will
heal all dissensions.
As we have heretofore said, this district
casts fifteen thousand Democratic votes, and
the party can neither afford a lukewarm
campaign nor one embarrassed by party dis
sensions; therefore, we trust that the exam
ple and the advice offered by Gen. Gibson
will be acted upon by his political friends in
such manner as to secure the united support
of the Democracy of that district for a con
gressional nominee. Gen. Gibson has cer
tainly not Impaired his claims upon -the po
pie of his district, if the nomination should
be again submitted for their action, by his
prompt and self-sacrificing advice to his sup
porters.
NO TROOPS FOR ELEOTIONS.
After a prolonged debate the [louse of
Representatives, by a vote of 116 to 95,
adopted the proposed amendment to the
army appropriation bill, and then by a vote
of 118 to 95 passed the bill itself-a strict
party vote, except that of Mr. Nicholls, of
Georgia, who voted In the negative. The
amendment, which was so strongly or posed
by the Republicans, stipulates that no money
appropriated in the act shall be paid for the
subsistence, equipment, transportation or
comoensatlon of any portion of the army of
the United States to be used as a police force
to keep the peace at the polls at any election
held within any State. In his speech on the
pending amendment Gen. Ewing, of Ohio,
very clearly Illustrated the inconsistency of
the Republicans In denouaning the practice
of putting riders a. appropriation bills, and
showed thasidosng twswve'*sars of Besub
had bee teoted on to appropriation bils.,
In oonalueion he deolared that no matter on
which side the troops might be used at else.
tions, they would be base instruments of the
party despot who sent them there.
MILITARY PENSIONERS.
During the discussion of a bill to place non
commiseloned officers of the army on the re
tired list after thirty years of service, Ms.
Saulsbury, of Delaware, made a spirited I.t
tie speech in opposition. lie said he had due
respect for the soldiery, but he thought they
were already sufilciently honored and pro
vided for. He oailed attention to the fact that
while the national capital was filled with
monuments to soldiers, money could not be
raised by subscription there to erect a monu
ment to a civilian, no matter how dis
tingulshed, nor would Congress entertain a
propoesition to reti re on a pension public ser
vants who had been faithful in a civil capa
city. And yet, he said, there were civilians
as useful at home and in public walks during
the war, and of as much service to the coun
try as any soldier In the field. He said that
for these reasons among others he should
always oppose all increases of the pension
lists for purposes at all like .those contem
pla ted in the pending bill. These objections,
it will scarcely be doubted, were honest
ly made by the staunch old Senator
from Delaware, but It is to be regretted that
the public mind has heretofore been lndis
posed to listen to such arguments. In fact,
since the termination of the war, It has been
regarded as more or less treasonable to even
dissent from any measure, no matter how un
necessary or extravagant Its provisions
might be, looking to the bestowal of honors
or emoluments upon persons who have been
engaged In the military service of the country.
At the rate the pension list has been increased
during the past few years, if continued, it
will not be long until one-half of the daily
earnings of the unpensioned will be required
to support those who have preferred claims
upon the government. As Mr. Saulsbury In
timates, it is time that the pension roll should
be finished. The laboring men of the country,
who are contesting w h their employers for
barely living wages, ' annot look favorably
upon any measures that contemplate the in
crease of the already grand army of public
idlers. If officers and non-commlssioned
officers are entitled to government support
after thirty years' of service, why not place
workingmen on the same footing?
The city of St. Louis Is In luck. It has just
won a great suit against the Missouri Pacific
aillroad, Involving, principal and interest,
the sum of $920,000. In 1885, when the road
was in a bankrupt and unfinished condition.
it borrowed from the county of St. Louis
$700,000 in bonds. The interest was promptly
paid on those until 1876, when the road passed
into the hands of receivers under a fore
closure of mortgage. The county of St.
Louls appeared In the courts and asked that
its claim against the road should be recog
nlsed as binding, and that it should be sold
subject to this claim. The United States Cir
cuit Court sustained this view, and made a
decree that whoever bought under the fore
closure proceeding should buy subject to the
claim of the county, and established the
claim as a lien on the road superior to any
other interest then existing. When the road
was sold the purchaser appealed from this
decree to the United States Supreme Court.
In the meantime the county made over its
claim to the city of Sti Louis, by which the
suit was prosecuted and finally won. Pend
ing the proceeding before the Supreme Court
the road was again sold, Jay Gould this time
becoming the purchaser. It will devolve
upon him, therefore, to satisfy the judgment.
If report sla to be believed, James Gordon
Bennett is about to engage in a journalistic
enterprise that will completely overshadow
the Stanley expedition to find Livingstono or
the Jeaqpette's search for the North Pole.
It is said that he intends to establish a chain
of two-cent morning newspapers, reaching
from New York to the Pacific coast, and in
eluding Buffalo, Cincinnatit, St. Louis, Chi
cago, Kansas City and San Francisco. To
conduct such an enterprise as this would re
quire a large capital and almost unlimited
energy. The former Mr. Bennett has, and
it is understood that John Russell Young will
supply the latter, he having been selected as
the general director of the papers to be em
braced In the scheme. The new journals are
to share the telegraph facilities of the New
York Herald, and are, like it, to be ludepen
dent in politics. As a story was afloatmome
months ago that Mr. Bennett intended to
print an edition of the Herald In theiety of
London, and as he has done nothing of the
kind thus far, the present report may be
taken with a large degree of allowance.
The telegraph has told us something of
the effect of the English elections on the
Continent and the general consternation
they caused among the European powers,
with the exception of Russia, which, of
course, was delighted at the defeat of jingo
ism. It is said that one of the powers
which is most interested in the change and
which expects the most of it is Spain. All
the Spanish newspapers express themselves
delighted at the Liberal success, and declare
that it must result in the ce3sion of Gibral
tar to Spain. Thenew Liberal government
will, they think, take England out of
European politics, and will advocate the
theoryof "peace at any price," so that a little
pressure from Spain will gain back Gibral
tar. As able statesmen as Castelar and
Canovas pretend to believe this and an
nounce that when Gladstone's government Is
instailed, one of the first acts of Spain will
be to demand its ancient possession, Gibral
tar.
The House District Committee has re
ported a bill appropriating $677,000 for the
completion of the Washington monument at
the capital. The task of erecting this monu
ment has been one of the heaviest the govern
ment has taken on its hands. It was begun
in 1799, so that it has been under way eighty
one years. In this period only 156 feet of the
proposed height of 700 feet has been com
pleted. At this rate three centuries will
barely bring us to the glass pyramid which,
it is proposed, shall be placed on the summit
of this structure.
The impaneling of negroes on juries in Vir
ginia has been a question before the public for
some time. A number of Virginia State
judges refused to summon negroes on their
juries. Thequestlonwas brought before Judge
Reeves, of the United States District Court
for Virginia, who decided that this was con
trary tothe fifteenth amendment, and that a
negro hbad a right to be tried by his peers
ae oes, The United Btates Supreme Oodrt
of the Virgiia egislature that this was an
nvasiton of the rights of the State. One, at
least, of the Virginia judges has ohanged his
views on this question, and negroes are now
called to serve on juries in Petersburg,
where they had never served before.
Another story of famine comes to us from
the province of Orenburg, in Russla, where,
i t is reported,the greatest destitution prevails.
There is now scarcely a quarter of the globe
we can turn our eyes to where famine and de
str uction are not prevailing. In Ireland,
Galway and Mayo are the eoenesof thegreat
est suflering; in Silesla, the people are llving
on flour made from clay; around Adrianople,
in Turkey, the dogs are the only food avail
able, and men and women drop down dead
in the streets every day from lack of food; in
Bi razll the dead can already be counted by
hundreds of thousands; and in far-off Chlna
by millions. There is probably no time in
the history of the world when there was so
much suffering of this kind. The United
States appears to be the only country of its
sine and extent where crops are successful
and where actual destitution does not prevail.
CURRENT TL'ICJ.
OBIMAN EMIGOATION TO AMUICIA.
The report of the Commissiloner of Emigra
tion of the German Empire contains some very
signlficant figures. From Itwe learn that s,5as?
emigrants left the country durlnr the year 1I79.
Of this entire number so.se came to the United
States. There is an increase of the total emi
gration in 1l79 of over oeoo persons, while the
emigration to the United States shows an in
erease of loo,U. 'The signs already appurant in
the Empire Indicate that the present year will
witness an activity In emigration which will
surpass the great movements of 1l71 and 1572.
This extraordinary exodus is generally at
tributed to the contemplated increase of the
armies of the Empire. 81milar movements are
also in progress from SBondinavia and other
portions of Europe, which, added to that from
the British Isles. will swell the grand total of
additions to the population of the United States
to almost Incalculable proportions. BSpeaking of
the German emigration movement the New York
Tribune commends the fact to the thoughtful
conslderation of the people who are trlyng to
bring about the renomination of Gen. Grant.
It thinks such a course will drivethegreat
mass of the Germans in this country from the
ranks of the Republican party. as It cannot be
denied that they have grave apprehensions as
to the result of a third presidential term.
waxaR TS1 ONaST 00ons.
Eighty millions of gold has been reoeived in
the United States from forelgn countries dur
ing the past year. Our government has been
coining silver at a rapid rate-as much as two
millions in a month-and yet the great oper
ators in Wall street and financiers elsewhere
aro asking where all the money goes. An ex
change undertakes to solve the conundrum by
sating that the revival of domestic and foreign
trade has absorbed a great many millions for
its use. and that it has been the custom for the
New York banks to disburse many more mil
lions every fall to move the cotton crop. This
heretofore has only been a temporary advance
,f the money to the cotton shippers, as was
that of an equally large sum which went to the
Northwestto move the grain crop. These were
only short loans made by New York to the
country. The past season, it is said, has re
versed all this. Of the millions sent South to
move cotton not more than two-thirds has come
back, the other third' remaining in Southern
hands at present. Of the much larger sum
sent West and Northwest for the grain and pork
non avery large balance s1 now in the pockets
of the farmers, were it Is likely to remain. For
the first time in many years it is remarked that
these farmers can show a resrectable surplus
in cash for the year's crop. after paying labor
and store bills.
SHADOWS O O COINIG ETENTS.
The New York Nation of a recent date pub.
lished what purported to be an Interestlng
phase of the civil rights question, based upon
the rulings of the Supreme Court of the United
States relative to the power of local school
boards to make obligatory the reading of the
Bible in the public schools. This decision of
the final court is alleged to have been rendered
in May. i8eo, while the case was aopealed from
the April term of the Supreme Court of Illinois
of the same year. The effect of this ruling, ac
cording to the Nation, was to deprive the
Roman Catholli population of Illinois of the
right to education in the public schools, which
they are largely taxed to support. It is further
stated by this chronicler of future events that
an injunction had just been granted in the
United States Circuit Court in Chicago to re
move the said case into that court. "Every
man." said the learned judge presiding in the
Circuit Court. "has a right to an eoual enjoy.
ment of the privileges of education for which
he is taxed; and to abridge this right
is an invasion of the fourteenth amend
mont." A similar ruling is announced to
have just been made in the United States (Or
cult Court in Alabama. Under date of beptem
ber. 1880, is noticed that a late decision of the
Supreme Court of Ohio, to the effect that the
compulsory reading of the B.ble in the public
schools must be abandoned, has just been re
versed by the Supreme Court of the United
Stater. "Have not Protestant Christians." ar
gued Mr. Justice 3trong. giving the opinion of
the court, "their rights under the fourteenth
amendment, (believing, as they do, that the
Bible is the basis of education; and can they be
constitutionally deprived of these rights in a
State where their money goes to supply three.
fourths of the expense of these schools?" It
had been objected, on the argument, that this
position was inconsistent with a late ruling in
Chicago, by the United States Circuit Court
there sitting, to the effeot that read
ing the Bible in the srhools could
not be constitutionally Enforced, as the effect
was to impair the civil rights of Roman Catho.
lice. But this obj cetion was refuted by Judge
Strong, "It proves." he said in the course of
his opinion. "that under the fourteenth amend.
ment the rights of no class in the community
can be invaded, and that the fourteenth amend.
ment, as it was lately remarked by a distin
guished Federal judges in Virginia (RtveJa).h
in fact as well as in theory, proclaims liberty
throughout the land. It might indeed be argued
that this breaks up the schools, since they can
not at the same time read and not read the
Bible. The objection, however, is irrelevant,.
and if the schools interfere with civil rights, so
much the worse for the schools."
BOUGH ON BENJAMIN FRANKLIN.
According to an article published in the Lon
don Athen~um., Benjamin Franklin is not en
titled to the credit of having first drawn light
ning from the clouds. On the contrary, the
Athena um confesses a sort of satisfaction, on
behalf of the Old World. In being taught to ante
date this triumph of experimental sagacity
though only by a few days. in favor of an ex
periment made at the suggestion of Buffon by
M. Dalibard. at his country house at Marly-la
Ville, about eighteen miles from Paris, on May
10o, 1752, fifty-five days before the observation at
Philadelphia by Franklin. It is stated that M
D dibard's house stood on a high plain, some
tee fet above the sea level, and here a wooden
scaffolding was erected supporting an iron rod
eighty feet long and a little more than an inch
thick. At about five feet from the ground this
rod was connected with an electrical apDaratus.
