1 White Rule in MKstsslppl.
R cturns from about one-half of tho MIte-
1 1 lppl counties show that tho new Constltu-
ij tionof that State will fullll the main object
of Its adoption, tho diminution of the coloied
1 voto and tho malutenancoof n uliito liiu-
I Jorlty. To pecure that object the Constltu-
I Uonal Convention determined upon two pro
J xlaiona B3 pt-ercquUltos tootlii(;. the pre-
payment of n poll tax within u ccitaln

II era havo paid Ihelr poll taxes. In the

I cf tho colored voteis havo registered.

I S.OOO entitled to register; in Lowndes only
I S ii out of about 5,000. 1'iom tho piesent
Statoof tho registration It beems that the
D yrhlte majority this year Is likely to be
j I 10,000 or 20.000 greater than tho entile nura-
H ber of colored votes roglsteied. A small
R percentage of tho white oters will also be
disfranchised, but the unwillingness or in-
I ability of the negroes to pay tho poll tux

condition, however, tho jury system Is
better lltted to tho wants of a fiee people
than any otl.ci method which has yet been

The twenty-fifth national encampment ot

geon li. T. iiTErurssoN- and Chaplain AV. J.
llt'TLKDun, w lio llrst talked ovet the piojct
of this organization, fore-aw what it would
bo to-day. The Chaplain struck out tho
otiglnal Idea whllo they weie engaged In
Sherman's Mcildlan campaign; but Dr.
Stu'iiessok is regaided as tho real founder
of the older, since lie made tho idea
practicable, dicw up tho jltual, and started
the organization. He had lesumed the
ptnetico ot medicine In Springfield, his
native town, but Pest 1 was founded nt De
catur, because tho necessary printing of the
secret papcts could there bo done by certain
toldieis who had set veil in the war, and
were ready to join. Dr. Stephenson signed
this charter as Coniniamler of tho Depart
ment of Illinois, und the namo Grand Army
of the Itcpublio was nt tho head of tho
document. Twclvo members wcro named
In it, and on tho Cth of Aptil, 1691, five
of them wero rtill living, including M. 1
J'.ccan, tho llrst Commander. A post was
next formed In Spiingllold, and early In
Tune, 1SC0, tho cider was extended to Wis
consin. Tho first depaitment convention
was held on tho 12th ot July at fc'ptingllcUl,
ni.d Gen. Fat.mi'.k was elected a3 Com

organization of n depaitment in Iowa; and
In November the firt national encampment
was held ut Indianapolis. Dy that time tho
organization was bpr..tding very fast. Tho
I'ast had the national encampment of 1V'3
nt Philadelphia, when Gen. John A. Logan
was tlected as Conunandct-ln-Clilof. Ho

Laws Against Sunday Labor.
There Is a law In Tennostoo which pio
hlblts cettain forms of labor on Sunday,
under penalty ot lino or Imprisonment. A
year ago a citizen of Tennessee named II.
M. Kino, who belongs to the sect known ns
the Seventh Dty Adventbts. was tried and
convicted under this law for having
ploughed a field on his farm in Obion county
on Sunday. Tho conviction was afllrmcd by
tho Supiemo Court of tho State, and the
caso was then taken by means of habeas
corpus proceedings Into tho United States
District Court for tho Western District of
Tennessee, on tho ground that Mr. Kivowas
held In custody by the ShciliTiti violation of
tho l'cdeial Constitution. The caso was
argued before District Judge Hamjionu of
Memphis, who has just rendered n decision
ndverso to tho application, which denial,
according to the telegraphic report, Is based
chletly on tho ground that no question Is
involved vvhtch Is cognizable by the 1'oderal
This conclusion Is In accordanco with tho
weight of authority, and consistent with
what may bo called the Democratic viow of
tho Constitution of the United States, or tho
Interpretation ot that Instrument which
leaves tho largest liberty In their domestlo
concerns to tho several States of the Union.
If tho Sunday law of Tennessee does not
v lolatc auy provision of the Stato Constitu
tion as Interpreted by tho State Supremo
Com t, the Federal tribunals will not pio
nounce It Invalid, and cannot Interfere with
a conviction under it unless It Is clearly
made to appear that some command or
prohibition contained In tho Federal Consti
tution has been disregarded.
As a rule, tho State Constitutions prohibit
the enactment of any law respecting an es
tablishment of religion. It has repeatedly
been held, however, that statutes providing
for the punishment of blasphemy and other
fotms of piofanity do not fall within this
constitutional prohibition. Theso statutes
nio justilled on the ground that profane and
blasphemous language Is offensive to tho
general public sense of decency and pro
priety, and that its utt?ranoo tends to dls
tuib the public peace and ordei. The pun-l-hment
of blasphemy and piofanity cannot
be tegauled a-, in auy sen-en denial of tho
fullest religious libctty, Ina-muoh as no re
ligion command-, or appiovos the use of
bln-plieinoti-. 'if ) rofano wotds ut.der any
It has been admitted, however, by some of
tho ablest Judges and law miteis, that tho
argument In biipport of statutes against
Sunday laboi Is by no mean- -o cogent ; and
Chief Justice Cooi.r.Y has well said: 'The
Jew who is foiced to le-pect the llrst day
of the wo"; when his coiseleneo lequlrosof
him tho ob-oivaueo of the seventh also,
may plausibly urg" that the law discrimi
nates against his leligion, and by forcing
him to keep a second Sabbath iu each week,
unjustly, though by Indirection, punishes
him for his belief."
Nevertheless, tho Sunday laws against
lal or have generally been sustained by the
courts in this countty, eltliei on the same
ground as the statutes against blasphemy
that is to say, out ot respect to tlie wishes
of the vast mnjoilty or as sanitary regula
tions founded upon the common experience
that men generally need ono day of rest iu
In this Stato it Is not evety form of labor
that is prohibited on Sunday, but only ser
vile labor; and contracts for servile labor
have been upheld by the courts where tho
work began on Satuiday and extended over
into Sunday, lliero can bo littlo doubt,
however, that under the Now York statute
ploughing would bo deemed 'eivilc labor.

a knowledge nud a genius In practical
polities which havo not been poesscd by
any Ma'sachusotts man since Hent.y Wil
hon. He 1, iierhaps, a little too emphatic.
He scores his enemies loo much. Ho makes
tho mistake of not burrowing In secret, as
Apin Tiuyeu used to. Hut ho has tho
brains, ho has tho strength, and ho
has tho money too; and If It Is given to any
Ilcpitbllcnn politician of Massachusetts to
get whoro ho wants to Iu thoneitfew year1,
It Is given ta this cross-country ilder from
Nnhant. He Isv igoroits, and tho Massachu
setts Republicans nro too used to feeble and
futile ancients not to relish nud admlro Hits
bold nnd bluff yourg athlete, w hoso courago
doesn't prevent him from being ono of tho
ehrowdest nnd subtlest of political tnan
agors. Ho takes I1I3 party straight, and his
party tsgratolul to a man who doi'sn'l antici
pate defeat by mumbling excuses nnd apolo
gies. Fiunlly, ho has tho talent for public
lite; and ho has conquered tho piejudlces
which Mitiounded his ontrancolnto it. Ho
Is able to read and vvrito without offending
his constituents; and they and the men of
tho Republican party ot Massachusetts ad
mire hlin, and will help him In his career.
Ho is occasionally defeated, as he was
defeated on thu Reapportionment bill;
but it helps and will pay him ultimately to
represent tho extreme and radical wing of
his party. Ho etnuds for what It wants -to
do. and If ho falls, ho falls with his party,
and his personal prcstigo is not imptiied.
Just at present a sweet story comes from
Massachusetts that ho has been spurned
nnd sat upon because tiirco Republican Con
gressmen, Rockwell, Coocisvvkll, ntid
WAi.KEtt, hav e refused to sen 0 on tho Com
mittee on Resolutions nt tho next Repub
lican Convention, of which it is exact
ed that Mr. Loner, vvld bo the Pi evi
dent and linchpin. It is said tint these
gentlemen do not lovo Mr. Loihie. Vciy
probably; but what of it? Fitvvi Rock
w kll Is a dead duck. Joe Walker, w ho
knows something about thn boot and shoo
business and thinks something about tho
sliver question, Is in his .shirt sleeves watt
ing to be nominated for Governor.
None of the Republican Congressmen of
Massachusetts, except Mr. Lodoe, dotes
upon Mr. Lodoe. Ho is too conspicuous.
But not all the Republican Congressmen
and ex-Congressmen from Massachusetts
can pievent Mr. Lodge fiom exeteising tho
Inlluencc to wliich his talents entitle him.
Lnvy and jealousy cannot hurt him much
or long. Ho is about tho only Republican in
Ma-sachu-etts with a distinct lltncss for
large politics; and if ho doesn't succeed, it
will bo because Hilly Rissell nnd tho
other young I )emoera ts have conquered Mu
sachtiictts and not nieieh surprld liei.
