lmoerirty l rHCommendlng I plan for reor
ganizing Ihn party In this city Thr plnn pro
posed tile abolition of ward and district politi
cal associations and the consequent prevention
of local political quarrnls I waa freely l criti
cised I It was said that thin party could not be
held together without the district associations
I tho party adopted such plan the Democrats
would b wasting valuable time while the He
puiillcnns wire holding meetings regularly
and malting their plans for future work
Mr E Ellory Anderson road the report of the
the other committee One of tho mOt Impor
tant recommendations In I was that a law
should parsed which would give every voter
the same rights and protection at primary
elections as ho now has when he goes to the
polls on a general election day
Alter a long and rather heated discussion
tho report rend by Mr Hewitt was slightly
amended and adopted I declares that the
Democratic party cannot perish so long as free
government lasts In this country I tells how
much the country Is Indebted to that party The
Democratic doctrine takes from the people the
minimum and from the mate the maximum of
power The party Is In favor of full and fro
elections and a fair count and opposod to the
use of the bayonet at the polls The report fa
tore civil service reform and deplores the e
istence 01 the army of Federal officeholders
and the power ot the party In
power to extort money from them for
political purposes By this means tbo party In
power perpetuates Its existence and Influence i
No person should be removed from office for
political reasons but allowed to retain his vo
lition 8 long a faithful and capable In the
performance I of his duties The tariff should
be simplified and ulttmatuly put upon the base
of tariff for revenue only The navigation laws
should be so amended as to bring back Ameri
can supremacy In sblppinir Gold and silver
should be the only legal money of the country
The Democrats of every State which wai lost in
tho late election ought to ascertain the cause ol
their defeat and remove that cause A reform
of the primary elections Is provided for
It was resolved that a committee ot ten bo
appointed t print and circulate the address for
signatures and to call a public mass meeting
of all Democrats who are In sympathy with the
purposes indicated by the report Tho same
committee will be Instructed to prepare a plan
for reorganizing tbo local Democracy and re
port the plan at the coming mass meeting

WASHINGTON Dec 16A bill brought for
ward In the Sinato today by Mr Oockroll
Dent Mo was mado slim of by thn Repub
licans to oxhtimn John Browns body and to
unseal nn old fountain of political bitterness
Tho bill appropriates 14750 to pay Samuel A
Lowe for services and expenses as Clerk of the
Territorial Legislature of Kansas In 1855
No sooner had Cockrull called It up than In
stalls of Kansas was on his loot That bill
nald ho Is an attempt to have pay granted for
the compilation of what are known as tho
bogus statutes of Kansas or tho sieve code
which was repealed anti publicly burned by tho
Free Boilers ns soon as thoy obtained control of
tho State The atatutea wero tho blackest most
damnable body of laws over attempted to bo
passed They never wero recognized ns laws
of Kansas Lowe had no authority to compile
them Ills claim has slept all these years
until apparently It Is now hoped that the vlcl
lance of tho country can 0 eluded
Mr Incnlta read AS a sample ono of the sec
tions ot this code which made It I felony pun
ishable l by Imprisonment at hard labor for two
years to bring Into ISo Territory any printed
or written matter denvlng tho right of persons
to hold slaves nnd nicking It a capital offence
to bring a fugitive slave Into tho Territory
Lowe s claim wan rnpudiattul by his own party
who were In power In Kansan for five or six
years after hn compiled this book The laws
wern not enacted They wero never signed b
In officer of tire Legislature
Mr Cockrell showed that the Legislature that
authorized the compilation was tire onlv ono
that ever aasemblediinder the act of 1854 It
was not Ihe fault of Lowe that the laws hn 1 I
employed to com 110 went bud or wore subs
quently repudiated Ho deserved his pay for
servIce lature rendered to a legally organised Legis
Mr Incalls asked why the Democratic party
had not allowed Lowes claim out of tho Terri
torial the proper expense officer fund In fact It was rejected by
Mr Harris Dam Tnnn said the refusal to
P the claim was made because tho work was
not completed until after the appropriation for
legislative expenses had been exhausted
Mr Vest Dim Mo referred to a remark of
I rmlrl
Mr Ingnlls that the code was baaed on the code
of Missouri Nosuch statutes ever existed In
Missouri He did not propose to revive the
questions of that terrible period Slavery was
dead and ho had no wish to bring It to life But
he could not retrain simon tho Subject had boon
brought up from saying that violence begat
violence and outrage provoked outrage The
people tent out by Plymouth Church and other
pillars of God and morality headed by that old
scoundrel John Brown wino afterward justly
expiated his crimes on the scaffold at Harpers
Ferry were responsible for much of the Tin
lonceot that unfortunate time He did trot bro
poso to quietly hear the people ol M cl
Jharced with projecting sl i 9ur
Kansas Lowo w statutes into
irrespoinsiblo servant
attn a OU paid for his clerical work
Ire ungalle responding to Mr Vest aid tinat
did not Pr000Re at this perIod of the nation
hIstory Brown to enter upon a vindication of John
tI oll1rPrown was wctited as a traitor
pnIlie kit of December 1859 But the nation
uioic up the flag that he laid down at Harpers
Ferry and bore It In triumph through four
years of war to Appomattox Court House John
Brown was about four year ahead of his time
It was the nation that was laggard and it re
quired but a very few years after his decease
for the nation to occupy the platform on which
bo had stood He said that he did not Intend to
bo drawn Into any controversy with the Senator
from Missouri Vest on this subject He had
simply stated that the laws of Missouri formed
the basis of the code in question being changed
or supplemented In such respects as to nt them
for the peculiar state of society desired to bo es
tablished in Kansas
Mr Harris Dent Tnnn summed up the
jvldence before the Committee on Claims
showing Lowes services and the failure to pay
him because the appropriation was exhausted
and stated his opinion that on Its merits as an
ordinary claim Lowes claim was Food
Mr Edmunds Rp Vtl said > rl begin to got
interested in tnls bill since John Browns name
has been brought up although nothing that
can bq said of him In this Senate good or evil
will mar the brightness of that fame that will
go down as the typo of honest though It may be
inlsifulded love of lIberty His body lies
mouldering In the grave but his soul thank
God Is marching on Mr Edmunds then
cited an old net restricting thn expenses of the
Territorial Legislature of Kansas to certain
amounts for defined purposes and as Lowes
services were In excess of these specifications
Mr Edmund held that ho was not legally en
titled to pay for them
Mr Cookrell In replying to Mr Edmund
spoke of the Inevitable excess of expense on
public buildings over thoauiotintsapproprlatod
for them though thuexcess was always allowed
let this mst claim was to be evaded because the
employers of Lower were said to have slightly
exe < eded their authority
Mr Cockrell tried to get n voto on the bill but
was antagonized by a motion to go Into execu
live session which prevailed

WAfliirNOTOM Duo 15Tlro speech of tho
Senate debate today on Educational hill
was made by Senator Brown of Georgia Ho
stood at a desk on the Republican side mmii
faond tho Republicans when speaking The
spirit ot his remarks seemed to command
sympathy anti approval on that side The
speech was listened to with particular Interest
on the Democratic aldus because of a general
doubt ns to whether Senator Brown would
definitely act with his party
The bill was Introduced by Gee Burnsldoot
Rhode Island It proposes to establish nn
educational fund rind apply a portion of the
proceeds ot the public lands to public educa
tion and to provide for the moro complete on
dowmnt and support of national colleges for
the advancement of Bclontlflo and industrial
education It also makes provision for tbo edu
cation of common school teachers
Gun Burnsldn and Senator Morrlll ot Ver
mont spokn In advocacy of the bill Mr Brown
then got the flror ills speech was remarkable
for Its blunt assertion of Southern deficiencies
Mr Brown said thattho superiority Nnw
England ovorothor sect Ions of tho country wan
duo to her educational advantages She had
furnished or educated most of the men who had
controlled our public affairs In the South ho
said there was mom Illiteracy and Ignorance
than In any other portion of tine country The
retteon of this was that under tire old system of
Season society morn attention was paid to tub
education of tire ruling classes than to that
of the masses and tho slave population
rnceived no education Tire abolition of
nlavnry was nn Inevitable result of progress
If the Abolitionists hail offered to buy and pay
for tire slaves the offer would not have been
accepted nor would the wholo people have
Bubmlttnd to taxation for that purpose The
only way to have gotten rid of ft was to tear It
up bythe roots as had been done Tho slaves
had become citizens It wag dangerous to en
franchise so much Ignorance and tine danger
was continuous All now agreed that the
blacks should bo educated but the South was
too poor to do It alone They lost two billions
ot dollars In the value of slaves which they
held constitutionally before tine war They
spent two billions morn In maintaining their
armies and Immense amounts by the destruc
tion of property The negroes had shown
great pnaoeableness of disposition and great
selfcontrol hut they stood In great need ot
education There was complaint that the
negroes were cheated at the polls Ignorance
can bo cheated everywhere Educate those
people up to a knowledge of their rights and
of the form and spirit of our Government and
there will be less and less danger

conduct of the collage in Georgia under s
