OUR WASHINGTON liTTER.
Wasnmcl‘ozt. D. 0. May 28. 1880.
The Republicans treated the Dem
ocrats to another exposure of their
methods while debating the Super
visors bill yesterday. This bill, by
the way, was brought up by the
Democrats for the purpose of get
ting rid of several objectionable of—
ficers. It provides that all super
visois shall be appointed for two
years only, and shall not be eligible
for reappointment, and that the
terms of all those now in office shall
expire on the lat of July, 1880.
They are to be appointed by the
President and confirmed by the Sen
ate. Senator Edmunds trade a
strong speech against it, showing
that if it became a law it. would fur
nish a precedent for making any
other class of citizens ineligible to
hold oliice whenever the whim or
necessity of a party majorjty in
Congress should render such an not
desirable. Senator Rollins made a
speech on the measure, and Senhtor
Cameron set forth at length the his
tory of the tissue ballots. Senator
Kirkwood detailed from personal
knowledge, many of the Louisiana
outrages. In fact the bill gave the'
Republicans a good chance to attack
the Democrats, and they embraced
it. Another efi'ect oi the bill, which
is intended to act against the Re
publicans is, that these officers of
elections who are thoroughly ac—
quainted with their duties are to be
kicked out, and their place supplied
by new and inexperienced men right
01) the are of a Presidential election.
But the measure has not passed the
House yet, nor has the President
signed it. The sub-committee of
the House committee on Mississippi
levees, which, in May last, went on
a tour of inspection of the Mississ
ippi river, submitted its report to
the House yesterday. which substan
tially endorses the report of the
Mississippi commissioners and ree
ommenda that the_government ex
tend all possible aid to the general
improvement of the Mississippi riv
er. No action will be taken at this
session of course, but it is believed
nearly every member of the present
Congress is in favor of liberal appro
priations whenths subject etlnea up.
Delegate Downey, of Wyoming,
who,a short time ago, printed in
the‘dtecord" a fifteen-page poem,
proposed in the House yesterday a
plan to get rid of the Innchgrahbed
at Geneva award balance. He
wanted it used to erect public build
ings throughout the country. Ilia
proposal was ruled out amid great
laughter on both sides of the lit-use.
In the House yesterday Mr. Fin-n
ney made a conicreme report on the
Military Academy appropriation bill,
which was agreed to.

The following comments are taken
from our exchanges relative to thd
immigration pamphletsz, -
“Northwestern Washington, its
Soil, Climate, productions and Gen
erai Resources,” is the title of a
pamphlet of 52 pages, published by
the Immigration Aid Society of that
section, at Port Townsend, W. T.
It is full of interesting information
for people whose eyes are turned
toward that Territory, as we know
some of our folks are. One object
of the book is, “to keep away those
who would aiways be sorry they
came, and bring those who would al
ways be glad they came.” It is a
border region, rich in soil, lumber,
clay. and grazing, and ofi'ering good
homes at little cost to industrious
people.——Marin Co. (Cal.) “Journal”.
“That pam hlet issued by Mr.
Weir of Port gownsend, under di—
rection of a local board of immigra
tion, is, we contend, a very fair doc
ument and makeup, notwithstand
ing the disparaging criticisms of the
Port Townsend “Press” and Seattle
“Dispatch” to the contrary. In
point of fair and truthful represent
ation which it assumes to deal with
we venture to say that it will com
pare with the aversge immigration
pamphlet. Though in point of typ
ography and malts-up it is not a
model work, we have no doubt it is
well ‘worth ' the money expended
upon it; and as to the criticism on
the “fly-specked map,” we advise
our friend Weir to talk back to them
as the darkey waiter did to the in
dignantfigueet who found a piece of
shirt on in his soup. “Why,” said
the darkey, “you must be a dam
phool; did-you expect to find a sill:
umbrella in a 15 cent plate of hash.”
In the (pamphlet‘referred to we cer—
tainly id not eXpect a lithographic
map that would cost more than the
entire work, not to speak of the la
bor of collecting the information
therein containedrn-P. S. “Mail.”
COMMUNICATE.
ED Ammo:—
Time rolleite ceaseless round, and
we are approching clone to the three
hold of the one-hundred and fourth
anniversary of our national indepen
dence—ethe remembrance of which
ought to cause, every personal; ace.-
tional and political feeling to be laid
aside at least for the day, and all to
unite in harmony and good cheer.
The one day of all the 365 days of
the year that should bind ua to~
gather in one common band ol‘ broth
erhood and friendship. Let all eel!-
iah and personal feelinga be buried,
and, like the two brothers who had
long been eatranged and at variance
with each other when brought to—
gether over the grave of their last
parent their animoaity toward each
other was buried with the dead. the
hand of friendahip waa mutually ex
tended and they were made happy—
ao let us all unite and pay our devo—
tione to the goddeaa of Liberty.
“Behold how good a thing it in
And how bfl‘omin' well.
Together such It lm-thren are
In unity to dwell."
