Treasurer Evening Star Newspaper Co. 8worn to and ?nbtcribed before me this tenth day of December, A. D. 1S88. Johs T. C. Clare. Notary Public. Both the democratic and republican new* pers of Baltimore indicate clearly what it ia that enables the lawless oyster dredger* of Chesapeake bay. without fear of punishment, to kidnap *laves from the streets of Baltimore, to kill them by barbaroua cruelty or by ex posure and starvation, to violate state laws pro tecting the oyster bed*, to defy, reaist, ^nd put to flight with powder and ball the state forces tent to enforce obedience to the law, and even to Are upon a harmless pasaenger steamer in the true piratical spirit of hostility to all man kind. These law-breaker* are Maryland voter*. In modern politics their vote* are a purchasable commodity. They are de livered to a party, faction or political leader for toleration if not protection in illegal courses. They trade in votes as well a* stolen oysters, and make one illegal trade shield them from the consequences of the other. It is also intimated that the oyster navy itaelf i* honey combed with political jobs to *nch an extent that it i* useles*. Tbe ille gal dredgers have not in the past been pun ished when captured. Now they are not even caught. Political bribery is the fruitful mother of a multitude of sins. Varied and illimitable corruptions followed the organiza tion in New York of mercenary bands whose weapons were votes, and who fol lowed their leaders in politics without question even after the latter had been ex posed to the world a* colossal thieve*. The Maryland political mercenaries occupy the waters of the Chesajw-ake as well as the city slums, and their organization receives for vote* not merely money, but permission to kidnap, steal and murder. Political corruption in Maryland thus causes the trading politicians to become accessories before and after the fact to murder, to degrade a state government, to bring humiliation upon a state's people, and to become responsible for a condition of law lessness in Chesapeake bay which disgrace* the American republic and the nineteenth ctutury. Early consideration of the District appropri ation bill in the llonse is promised. The com mittee on appropriations has reported this bill with creditable promptness, and is also to be commended for the large increase in the amount of appropriations proposed for the District over that suggested by it* bill of last session. Points in proposed legislation which one does not like always elicit more comment than those which one does like or to which one has no objection. The normal attitude of an American ia that of criticism, not of eulogy. While The 8ta* doe* not refrain from specify ing particular* in which it thinks the District appropriation bill, as reported, can be im proved. it thinks that the community has good reason to be gratified at the early and favor able start which the House committee has given to the legislation which is of the greatest in terest and importance to the District. The inaugural cxecntive committee have Tery judiciously fixed the price of the ball tickets at $5. This is the popular price and the one that ha* heretofore raised the largest amount of money for the inaugural celebra tions. There is a volume of cheerful suggestion in the diacovery made in O street, near 10th. the other day. where a broken water main lay so close to a broken sewer pipe that the water which leaked out flowed into the sewer and was carried off. In such a case, what is to pre vent the contents of the sewer from percolat ing through the earth which lies between and V> in ting the water of the supply pipe? The appropriation for permit work in the District bill should be large enough to secure the desired reform of the city's sidewalks. If the amount proposed bv the H >use committee is too small, the Senate should be urged to in crease it. One of the most pressing of the ma terial needs of Washington is that of better sidewalk*. ? The rlosing testimony before the military committee investigating the tunnel was not the least int? resting. The investigation has been a straight-forward and searching o.ie to the end. and evidently has not been conducted for the purpose of whitewashing anybody. A democratic csncua to discuss the subject of the territories which want to be state* has been called. If a majority of the caucus agree with it* chairman. Representative Cox. of New York, at least Dakota or Scuth Dakota will be ad mitted at the present session. Thi* action will come rather late, but will doubtless be grate fully accepted a* a peace-offering by the new aorthwest. Tea* of all irrades. ?SPECIALTY? ?SPRING LEAP TEA" (at 50c. a pound).
