Walker has represented the Appkal
as a traveling correspondent for the

Tm inquiry now being conducted
by a committee of the State Senate of
New York into the ways and nvans
by which Mr. "Jake" Sharp secured
from the mayor and aldermen cf New
York City the right of way along
Broadway for his surface tail-
way, has developed the fact that it was
paid for in good bard cash. Sbnrp
managed the thing himself and cov
ered up his tracks pretty well, but
the men he bought are not as sharp

to evade the inquisitorial probing
of Mr. Conkling, who is determined to
expose the gang who cannot plead

aiticle in the Ej.brunry number of
Jjippincolt'i Mtgtuine, replying to Gail
Hamilton's "diatribe against civil
service . rtfjrm in the January
ksue of that periodical, is an uncom
molly 1 vigorous piece of writing.
Mr. Blaine's female champion had col
lected all the stock arguments of the
spoilsmen against the reiorm, and Mf.
Eaton tikes them up-eeria'im and ex
pojes their utter absurdity in the moat
convincing way possible by the
records of the civil service under which
the Blaine family defends, and by the
testimony of Heading public men of
Mr. Blaine's own party. Point by
point he follows this mouthpiece cf a
disappointed Presidential candidate's
spites through' her eedding screed,
and shows how il'.og'cal and un
founded are all her defenses of the
spoils system.
The speech. of Senator Morgan on
, the Blair educational bill proves that
he has much to learn as to the people
, of the United States. To characterize

credit his own intelligence and libel

: labor capital would be inert and value
? less, and payment of taxes impossible.
J,'-' It is by the labor of all the workers in
I the Union that it is maintained. The
f professional men and women, the
laborers in field and cottage, in fac
tory and workshop these are the
people who pn.yi.he taxne, and it is
i their children who are to be immedi
j ately benefited by the passage of the
Blair bill, which we ara glad to see is
j . -earnestly and ably supported -by Sena

Every Southern Senator should vote

WAonisoTOK. February 11. Repre-
sentaiiTe Gibton, chairman of the
House Committee on Expenditures
in the Denartment of Juatice. has re
ceived replies from the Secietaryof
the Interior and the Attorney-General
to the resolution cf the committee !
atkicg what money had been expend
ed by their departments in the Pan
Electric and Bell Telephone caws.
The reply of the Secretary of the In-
tenor says sa-5 lor pritung, etc., was
the only money expended in hit de
partment. The Attorney-Genera! says
no money bai been expended in his
department, but that counsel fcave
been retained for the prosecution of
the government suit. No money has
yet been paid these counsel. Their
names have already been made pub
lic. The re-olution under which the
committee is acting simply directs it
to 'find out what moneys have been
expended by the government in tbe
telephone cases. The replies ill be
laid before tbe. committee at its meet
insr on Saturday next, and Mr. Gibson
eays he expects to be able to report to
tbe Mouse on aionoay roe report oi
the Committee on Investigation.
Mr. Uarlaad'a Keatanittlon K( Re
qamled by tbe Prenldent.
Washington special ' to the New
York Pwt: The attention of Attorney-General
Garland was this morn
ing called to a dispatch from New
York which stated that "the ll'orfd
said that the President had decided tJ
ask Garland to resign."
Mr. Garland answered: "You may
Bay that there is no truth in the re
port so far as I have been advised, and
it occurs to me that I should know.
You may also say that if such informa
tion reaches me I will be sure t j ad
vise the World."
"You may fuither say," said the
Attorney General, "that the reports
that I have received gifts of the Pan
Electric stock or am a donee of that
company, are not correct. People
seem to have forgotten my letter to
the President, dated October 5, 1865."
Turning to that letter tbe Attorney
General read this sentence: "About
three years ago I, with some
six or seven other gentlemen,
entered into an organization known
as the 'Pan-Electric Telephone Co.,'
tawd upon what was called tbe Rog
ers invention. We formed that com
pany in good faith, and staitad it in its
operations," etc. "You will see from
this." said- the Attorney-Genera1,
"that I waa one of the original incor
porators ot this company, and as sucb
entitled to stock."
Mr. Garland was preparing to go to
a Cabinet meeting, and evidently had
no expectation tbat his resignation
would be asked. The President has
recently said to friends that a request
for the resignation of Mr, Garland was
not in contemplation.
K- Aa kt'Mtnrlcal litMxariieyv
The Pan-Electric department of the
New Yorld World may be interesting
reading, but whether it will do to bet
on is another thing. For instance, it
published on the oth instant, a letter
to Dr. Rogers f fom Gen. J. D. C. Atkins,
now Commissioner oi tbe o.'tice of La
dian Affairs, and credited to him as
chairman of tb House Appropriations
Commit'.ee. The letter is dated April
19, 1883. The editor seems to have
forgotten that Gen. Atkins's congress
ional career closed March 4, lhb'i, and
his term as chairman of the Appro
priations Committee expired two years
before that At the time .of the or
ganizat on of the Pan-Electrie Com
pany, March 13, 1883, Mr. Atkins was
a private cit zn. Tho letter itself is
of no relevance, and one that he might
have written with propriety when he
was chairman. But he didn't. It is
well for publishers to guard -the
veracity of their statements if they ex
pect them to carry any weight.
Cabinet Medina;.

of the previous Chinese acts, provid
ing penalties for violations of their
provisions, are re-enacted, as are also
those providing safeguards against
Chinese unlawfully entering the coun
try, with such slight changes as are
made necessary by the provisions of
Hie first two sections of the bill. '
The provisions of the previous acts
relative to the removal of Chinese
found to be unlawfully in this country
are removed, as is also the provision
prohibiting courts from admitting
Chinese to citizenship. All the terms.

Morrison's Tarlir Bill.
Washington, February 11. The
tariff bill of Mr. Morrison will be
about fifteen printed pages in length
o! tbe ordinary sze bill. This is a
short taritl bill, it is nearly com.
pitted, except as to some minor de
tails. Mr. Lolombus peiano ot Utiio,
who represents the Association of
western wool urowers, naa oecome
convinced tbatAje bill will propose a
reduction in the Tariff on wool, and in
anticipation of this he expects to call
a convention of tbe wcoi growers, to
meet here, to use their influence witn
Consress to prevent the adoption of
such a recommendation. But
there is sood reason to be
lieve thct Mr. Morrison will
propose no reduction in the rates upon
wool. It is. however, almost certain
thai the bill will reduce the rates
upon carpet wools, as these come into
competition with, no wool grown in
this country. It is probable tbat there
will be no opposition to tnis proposi
tion, which will be welcomed by the
carpet manufacturers of Philadelphia
and of Lowell. A very bitter colusi
is expected over the tree list. It now
seems probable that lumber and salt
and some of tbe metallic ores willibe
put op it. It is expected that a large
vote will be cast tor tree mmoer irem
the agricultural States, and the West
ern cattle growers and packers will be
in earnest in Uvor ot tree salt.
