1 i I esyi fe a 1 1 r . . i 1 f THUItSDAY. DEOEMBEB 13, 1883. . I The Territorial Question. i J Tho Domocratlo members of tho IIouso of i Representatives mot In caucus on Tuesday M evening to consider what course to 'imreuo I . In respect U tho proposed admission of . I Dakota, Montana, Now Mexico, nnd Wash '. I loffton Territory Into tho Union. Thero was II nob entire harmony In tho views expressed I by tho various speakers, and further dlscus I : elon of the subject was postponed until this evonhiff, when tho deliberations of tho enu- cub will bo resumed. Mr. 8. S. Cox fipoko strongly In favor of j tho admission of all the Territories except i Utah and New Mexico. Mr. Marion i ' Bioan of California went still further, and i would lot In tho wholo tot, remarking, ac cording to ono roportor : , "Tosbeol with tlit policy of preventing the admis sion of Territories on account of tho political predilec tion of their people 1" I On tlio other hand, several gentlemen, L "prominent among whom was (Jen. Fiiancih . 9 B. SratOLA of this city, advocated tho ex- f I elusion of all tho Territories for thotlmo :- fl being. Gen. Sfikola wanted no now States " until after tho Presidential election of 1893. I Col. William C. Oates of Alabama thought. 9 i tho tost of fitness In each caso should bo tho ,. m l Democracy of tho particular Territory which I . applied for admission Into tho Union, and would let in only those in which a majority I ef tho cltlzons were now Domocrats. Wo will suggest a very slraplo test by ! ' Trhloh tho oauous can como to a correct con- elusion when It moots again this evening. It la tho tost of Justice and right. If tho con- ! dltlon of uny Territory which asks to be ad- I mlttod Into tlio Union Is such as otherwleo j . to make It fair and right and just that such Territory should bo mado a Stato, then It j ' should not bo kept out an hour on account -, of thojolltlcal preferences of tho Inhabitants. Tho rulo In all eases should be to admit a Territory when It Is fit to becomo a Stato without regard to tho question whothor at first it will bo a Itcpublican or Democratic Btato. No other rulo Is consonant with Jus- tico, and no enduring political advantage can j over bo obtained under a froo Government by doing that which is unjust or wrong. It Is an essential prerequisite to tho tri umph of Democratic principles In tho now States that tho Domocracy of tho nation m B shall treat thorn fairly and justly whon thoy knock at the doorof tho Union for admission. Tho Raco Problom in tlio South. I Mr. Oates of Alabama has tho satisfaction I of knowing that ho has givon his follow cltl- j sons all over tho country something to talk about. Thoro are few newspapers and few politicians that havo not discussed his re cant proposal tluit tho Southern States should acqulesco la tho loss of so much of their rop j reeentatlon In Congress as Is apportioned to I tholr negro population, provided tho whites 1 ehould bo allowed to manage their State j . and local affairs without the dread of Fed- ' t oral Interposition. We understand that Mr. Gbady of tho Atlanta Constitution goes even j r further, and maintains that tho Southern J States should bo glad to surrender all ropre- j , ' eentatlon in Congress, it in return they U I might oxcludo tho negro from any share In lj tholr Stato Governments. Jj Tho species of compromise suggested by Mr. Uatis would, he thought, liave to bo M . compassed by a constitutional amendment, jjj Wo pointed out that such an amendment jj was practically unattainable, and wo asked If ' Why the Southern whites. If thoy agreed j! With tlielr Itcprescntatlvo from Alabama, ' did not toko measures to provoke an on- 1$ forcomont of tlio ponalty cmbodjed in jj tho second section of the Fourteenth I ' Amendment. Now a correspondent inquires jj whether tho ponalty referred to was not '! repealed by tho Fifteenth Amendment, nnd J ' ho quotes a passago from Mr. Blaine's JE "Twenty Years of Congress" as authority - for an afllrmatlvo answer. I Mr. Blaine falls to show that the I , Flfteontli Amendmont repeals the sec- II .' ond section of tho Fourteenth. Indeed, '" ., he admits (vol. 2, page 418), that under ' tho section J ust named tho Congress ropre- rcsentation of Massachusetts, for example, . ' could be cut down In proportion to tho num ber of adult malo Inhabitants who, havimr boon born or naturalized in tho United ; States, uro deprived by State laws of tho . Buffrago on the scoro of non-payment of a tax or inability to read and write. Before, howevor, tho enactment of the Fifteenth Amendment it was quostloned whether voters disfranchised by Stato laws for the ;, reasons abovo mentioned, or for others, such as color or previous condition of servitude, , , had a right to first appeal for relief to. tho Unltod States Supreme Court. Be- causo ono remedy was held out to tho dis franchised In tho penalty to bo enforced by i Congress under tho second section of tho Fourteenth Amendment, it was contended In sumo quarters that a now and affirmative declaration (thut expressed In tho Fifteenth "i Amoudmont) was needed to empower citi zens disfranchised by Stato legislation to ln jj ' Toko Hie protection of the Federal judiciary. . We beliovo that, as a matter of law. what- ) ever rights of appeal to tho Supremo Court I ' are conferred upon a citizen by the Fifteenth , " Amendment, ho already had under tho j .' Fourteenth, and that tho former is simply f declaratory of tho purport of tho f; . latter organlo law, so far as one class of I persons, namely, colored citizens, are con- iij ocrhed. The last thing that could have i , boon contemplated by any elncero champion I' ol tho black moo and Intelligent promoter of the Fifteenth Amendment would havo been, while aiming expressly to give the negro, through tho Supreme Court, a shield against discrimination which before bo only possessed by implication, to deprive him at tho samo stroko of tho far more effective al '; teruatl ve presented in tlio penalty which Con gress was authorized to impose by tho second section of tlio Fourteenth Amendment. y' Tho Fifteenth Amendment confers In terms upon the negro tho right to demand ,' that any State law abridging his franchise , ' shall bo declared unconstitutional and void I by tho Federal Supreme Court.' But sup- ;-..'- poso public opinion will not warrant the Federal Kxeciitivo In enforcing by arinssueh n decision upon a State, cannot tho negro fallback upon tho remedy devised In tho efc'coiid section of the Fourteenth Aroeud- ment and ask Congress to punish his oppressors by readjusting their repre- '' aentation to the number of citizens allowed t. to vote 1 Undoubtedly ho can, and If ho , could not, his position would bo incompara- , Wy worse than it was before the passage of iTji'v . the Fifteenth Amendment for the time has !&$' proliablygone by when opinion at tho North I' ?K&( would sanction tho employment of military My forco ngnlnst n Stato for tlio purposo of rn- Mi- fotving tho Federal annulment of a State j2iK statute affecting Uie negro's right to vote. ' kT It is posslbltt that the disfranchisement of f,- negroes would havo to be effected directly '' J ui In terms by (stato leffislatloa-lostead di A of, as at prcsont, by popular fooling and In dividual action through Intimidation, Re turning Board, Ac In order to afford a basis for tho application by Congress of tho pcnnlty provided by tho second section of tho Fourteenth Amondmont That was what wo hod In view when wo told Mr. Oates that It tho Southorn whites shared his opinions, thoy should mnkn eomo tangible admission of tho fact that In many States tho negro la now virtually disfranchised. Tho manly way of making such an admission would be to abolish the existing olabornte machinery for Bupproselng negro euflrago In fact, whllo permitting it In word, and to substitute n State loglslatlvo act boldly depriving block of the franchlso on tho scoro of color nnd previous condition of pcrvittido. Then, un dor tho Fifteenth Amendment, tho UnlU.nl States Supremo Court would bo called upon to declare tho act unconstitution al, which it would forthwith do. But who imagines that public opinion would war rant theenforcementby arms of tlio decision, provided It -wero understood that tho State In quostlon would cheerfully submit to tho penalty of n reducod Congress representa tion, as provided by tho second section of tho Fourteenth Amendment? Wo beliovo, In other words, that thoy who framed tho Fourteenth Amendmont builtled wiser than thoy know, nnd provided a solu tion ot tho raco problem In the Southern States which posterity will prollt by, al though wo ourselves may bo too near tho civil war nnd Its logacyot sectional antago nisms to turn it to nccount. American Sentiment Toward Knglund. Sir Lyon PiiArPAin writes In tho Nine teenth Century upon our late election, dovot lng his attention moro especially to Its results as thoy seem to him to nfTecttho 'tariff question. What ho says In this regard la ot little interest and of lesa vnluo, but whon ho concludes by treating of tho senti ment of Americans toward England and Englishmen ho grows more entertaining. Tho ono phaso of tlio canvass which was painful to England as a nation, says Sir Lyon, was that " tho most popular election oratory was devoted to attacks on tho United Kingdom," tho twisting of tho Brit ish lion's tall being tho favorite "pastlmo of all, from President Cleveland himself to tho lowest buncombe spouter." This strikes him as very remarkable, for when iio attended tho celebration of tho centenary of tho Constitution at Philadelphia last year, ho was great ly touched by tho expressions of "en thuslastto love and-admiratlon " for England which his speech at the bonquot called forth. lie ulso found tho same feelings manifested by other assemblages addressod by him ; and thcreforo now cannot believe that tlio campaign animosity to England hud any other origin than commercial jealousy arousod becauso ot tho tariff issuo merely. At bottom he Is euro that " native Ameri cans havo never lost their love to tho mother country," so that If England was over en dangered by "unjust foreign aggression" "thoro would bo an irresistiblo demonstra tion In America to glvo us both moral and physical support In any emergency." But it would hardly bo eufo for England to proceed on such an assumption. When Amoricana and Englishmen ,conio together at a banquet, whether in England or the United States, it is truo enough that they very politely express tho profoundest ro spect and affection for each other. Yet whon wo were in danger of disruption and downfall the same Englishmen rejoiced over our misfortunes and did what they could to aggravate them. II ovor England la In liko danger or Is hard pressed bj- any foreign enemy. Sir Lton will find that tho " love " for his country among Americans will manifest itself in about the same way. Instead of on " irresistible demonstration " "to give both moral and physical old in any emergency," thero would more naturally bo an Irresistiblo impulse ot sympathy wltli tho enemies of England. Tho truth la that thero la no lovo lost be tween the two countries, nnd tho talk of after-dinner orators In each Is the true bun combo, not theelectioneorlngoratory against England which Sir Lton found so painful. Wbero thoro la not aversion, tho feeling in this country la ono ot Indifference; for Sir Lton Is all wrong when ho says that "four fifths ot tho American people trace their pedlgrco from England," and, therefore, uro its natural allies. Ho Is a man of scientlflo training, and ought to have studied the at tainable statistics on the subject before making such an assertion. Tho negroes and foreign bora of other than English birth make up of themselves more than one-llfth of the population of tho United States, and If we odd the children of foreigners not of English birth we get more than one-half of tho whole. The Popular Vote Analyzed. The lastcomfortot certain tariff educators, as thoy are pleased to stylo themselves, la found In Mr. Cleveland's plurality of about 98,000 In the popular vote. This is a gain of 75,000 on his plurality In tho popular vote of four years ago. By one of tho looso and vague prooossoa of ratiocination habitual with theso gentlemen, it is assumed that In some way not clearly explained the gain of 75,000 in tho popular plurality represents tho results of the educational campaign, and jus tlilcs and glorltles the policy of tho architects of disaster. Let us oxanilno tho returns with a view to ascertaining tho correctness of the assump tion. This may be dons beet by dividing the States Into groups, according as their votes show gains or losses for the ono candidate or other, or tor both candidates, as compared with 1881. The first group is of States whero tho can didates ot both parties lost votes. Theso oro two. Nevada and South Carolina. In Nevada the loss is obviously due to a decrease in the population ot the State. In South Carolina it Is probably dua to other causes: lieyuMlcan Ua. Cctutnttc tou.

It will bo apparent at n glanco from theso figures that thero Is no such distribution of Domocratlo gains throughout the country as warrants tlio supposition that Mr. Cleve. land's plurality on tho popular voto is duo to tho propaganda of so-called tariff reform. His Increased plurality cornea almost In n solid block from u few Southern States which went Domocratlo almost by default, nnd whero tho tariff issuo waa not greatly a matter of discussion or of concern. Again, It is moro than accounted for by tho Increaso of about 100,000 in tho Prohibitionist vote, tho bulk of which was drawn directly from tho Republican sldo. It may bo placed hero and thero, assigned to this cause or that, according to tho whim of tho ma nipulator of tho statistics. But thoro la positively no reason or common sonso in any theory which assumes that a process of tariff education was going on in Now Jersey and Pennsylvania which did not apply toNow York and Connecticut; nnd In New Hampshire, but not in Malno or Ver mont; and in Rhodo Island, but not in Mas sachusetts; or, to put tho fallacy In still moro striking shape, In Tennessee, but not in Kentucky. There is a vast deal of Instruction In elec tion returns, but cranks and incompotents do not, as a rule, manage to extract It. They Should be Stopped. What must havo scorned to tho majority of people like thunder from a clear sky was first submitted to tho public on Dec. 2 by tho New York Times, in tho shape of an elaborate and circumstantial statement nnd denial of soma scandalous stories regarding the private life of tho President. Since then thero havo boon various other communica tions of tho same sort in various journals of tlio country and from various sources, all go ing to make an Imposing array of contradic tions to tho stories In question. It has been suggested, and certainly not without a color of possibility, that Mr. Cleveland himself was the instigator of theso denials, or, at ieast, sanctioned their sudden and wide spread publication. Without considering that point, it la be yond the questionable dictates of public propriety that the President should cause them to bo stopped. During Mr. Cleveland's residence in tho White House there have been moro and greater and moro radical inroads into Presidential dignity than occurred in the ad ministrations of all the other Presidents put together. The ontlre temperament of tho Executive functions has been changed. Tho attitude and relation of the Executive to Congress, to his Cabinet, and to the peo ple at largo havo boon different from what they were formerly. He has used the oppor tunities ot his high office to scold the public for disagreeing with him, Ho has evon made it tho pulpit from which to denounce Domocratlo institutions. He has plunged his arm up to tlio shoulder in local politics, where other Presidents would not havo laid their hands. Ho even brought the President upon tho political stump when ho appeared as a reviewing offi cer of a parado. These innovations, however, are of trivial importance compared to tho uncalled-for obtrusion of the President before the nubile as the victim of domestic scandal and slander. By permitting thla, Mr. Cleve land Indulges in a degreo of freedom in handling his great office which nothing but the most extreme and imperative demands for justico to him as a public officer pub licly assailed could justify. Such was not the condition of affairs, how evor, from which attention has been drawn to a consideration of Mr. Cleveland's private life. So far as the public was aware, no on had broached tho subject ot thoso alleged scandals. They were not a matter of general and open discussion. No accusation had been rondo against the President which demanded his notlce.elther In blsownbehnlf or In behalf of the dignity which he repre sented. Thoy 6ay that thero was goeslp. The ostensible reason for suddenly springing it on the country generally was tho report that at a private party Mr. Detew had told to a small circle an anecdote for which bo was bitterly assallod for telling, on tho ground that he should not have repeated It at all. And tboreupon this samo tale was pushed boyond Its restricted limits by tho same agency whicn condemned Mr. Depew, and, In tho same way, it was given to the entire country, with the name contradiction as to its truth that Mr. Detew says accompanied Its original relation. It la also said that these stories were spread broadcast at the recent Democratic National Convention. That Is not Uie fact They were published In a pamphlet for distri bution among that body. No newspa per published tbom. Not only wero they distrusted on account ot their In herent nature, but they were repudiated aud contradicted as emphatically as repudiation and contradiction could avail by the Con vention itself which nominated Mr. Cleve land. And theso stories If they were spread about in private would havo naturally and inevitably faded Into torgetfulnees. It may be said that a man la entitled to defend himself, and certainly Mr. Cleve land was not lacking for indignant sympa thy which would havo greeted with. satisfac tion any method he might properly have chosen to repel tho slanders. But no private man when his namo la connected with scan dals rushes into print to deny them; and In tlio President's case such a denial waa to bft avoided to tho last extreme. Better let him suffer In allanoo than publicly drag hla ofllco into tho elouah from vtMx he cad evory1- other dignified and impartial citizen Indig nantly revolt. ' Whether Mr. Cleveland prompted tho publication of these stories or not, ha owes It to the country to bring it to a close. Kubblts. There can bo no reason for anyfurthor vlsltatonompstead by officers of tho cruelty provonting society, for tho purposo of arrest ing gentlemen engaged in coursing rabbits. Two Juries havo already considered tho question whether such sport Is cruel to tho point of making thoso engaged In It Uablb to punishment, and each timo thoy havo decided that It is not. Further action by tho society would bo simple persecution. It Mr. Belmont should bring his dogs Into Westchester county, whero thero nreno rabbits to speak of, and then Import rabbits to bo coursed, the juries thoro might take another vlow than is held in Qucena. But down on Long Island rabblte aro thick nnd Iienilcloiis, nnd any mcana that assists In their destruction Is apt to bo looked on kind ly, particularly If a preliminary foaturo la a small reward for first catching them.

A few weeks ugo 1,400 runaway slaves who had Hod for unfoty to a mission station near Mombasstu Knst Africa, r'ocoived tholr freedom from tho British African Company.

"L judco It to bo mr duty to inform your Eminence that, In tbe Contrrenation of the Holy Roman aud Universal Inquisition, held on Ave. 10 of this year, new documents re spectlnc tho oocloty of the Knights of Labor were oxamlnod, and tha same Supreme Con trresation bavins carefully welshed all, com manded the folio-Tint: answer to bo mado: " In regard to thoe thing which were again proposed, the society ot the Knights of Labor may be tolerated for the present, provided tbst those point In It statutes which are Incorrect, or can b token In a bad sense. are amended; especially If those words of the preamble of the constitution for local assemblies which seem losfitwrfp tocialitm oreommunttn are to corrected thmt thi mav iton(V that lAe rartA (toin tmi so olren ty CM to tnon, er rotAer to the numan race, that evtry one may enfovtht HoM fo arauir tone part of It, on the ute.tiow erer, tatcul means, and the rtoht of property belno pre tend. "Joun. Cardinal Smtom. " Trefect of the R. tfonir. de Propaganda Fide." A? retards tho Knlshts of Labor we have nothing at this raomont to offer. It is quits evident that tbo Holy Boo presumes that in tha mattor of toloratlnc this society tho Bishops will examine 9 nrefully to boo that tbo emondatlons required by tbo Holy Boo aro faithfully mado. Tho ono point, howovor, which Is abun dantly evident nnd which wo wish to Impress upon tho publlo Is that tho doctrine of Henry Goorco, donylng tho right of proporty in land has been explicitly con demned. Nothlne can bo plainer than this. It tho land was to clvon by Uod to man, or rattier to tho human raco that overy one might onjoytho ricbtto acottire some portion of it by tho uee of lawful moans, and if the riaht of protierlu of imliciduals is to bo pnf served. Tho doctrine of Mr. Georgo. in regard to which much has bcon said of lato. Is a simple denial of tho right to privato property tn land. His oxact words aro. "Wo must make land common." "If privato Property In land Is just thonthoromodyl propose Isn falso one. If, on tho othor bond, privato property bo unjust, then is tho remedy tho true one." Nothing further need bo said in regard to tho Burromo judgment of tho Holy Beo In regard to this modern socialism. The Sacred Congregation ot the Inquisition mar not think the books ot Mr. Goorco worthy ot notice Thero are books moro full of error than hie, rot thoy nav not been placod upon tho Index. The doctrine, howevor, which ho teaohes. and which Is all that is peculiar to himself, has bean explicitly condemned, and cannot be held by any Catholic. This languago of tho Bacrod Congregation Is only in accordance with tho encyclical of his Holiness. Doc. 2G. 1878: "Catholic wisdom, re lying upon tho precepts of the natural and tho divine law, has provided for tho socurlty of tho stato aud tho family by its tenets concerning the right of domain and tha division of prop erty. Tho Socialists denounce tbe right ot proporty aa a human invention, repugnant to the natural equality of man. But the Church ordalna that the right of property and dominion, tchich tpringifrom npture itself, be kept sacred and Inviolate to every one." Wo trust in common honesty that we shall hear no more arguments in dofonce of tho opinion that tho Catholic Church has tolerated, or will ever tolorato, Ujo denial of tho justice of tha right ot proporty In land.

Miss Cobden and Vies Bstes, niece of Sir Rowland Ulll, were re cently sent aa delegatea te th Men' Liber! AssociaUon Convention, and alias Cobden waa put on It executive committee. The Radical feel the necessity of utilising th strong powr of the women's Liberal organization, and are Inviting them to Join force so tht unitedly they may defeat the Conservative element la politic. Thoro are forty-eight national societies of women In this country, with a direct membership of 300.000 mem ber. Th largest Is th Women' Cbriatlan Temperance Union, with a membership of 310,000.

That, however, le not saying much. Probably there la lesa laughing done at tbe Standard Theatr now than In any other theatre In tha city ex cept the Fifth Avenue. Even the Introduction to the tun of "Yankee Doodle "of two dancers clad In small American flags does not touch a sympathetic chord in the audlonce and falls to "get a hand."
