jrofitably studied as a large area where tUe !
.wo systems of centralized and decentral- ,
zed power have been brought together.
Hie political development Of this territory
jegan after the evacuation by the British.
Michigan, which first adopted the town
neeting, is worthy of special study. "We
aotice throughout its history, not a State
founded like Massachusetts with the
greatest self-government from the beginning,
but with' the despotic system of i
France, and gradually gaining political
liberty. The change even from the conititution
of 1835 to that of 1850, is pariicularly
striking. Michigan was the first
State of the West to adopt the town meeting.
She has been followed in this
by Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois.
^hin Imliami n.wl Tiling
jellied more largely by people
from Pen nay Ivan in, Virginia "and Kentucky,
and naturally they have adopted a
compromise system, similar in many respects
to Pennsylvania. Ohio and Indiana
have towiiBhip officers elected by the people,
but few questions of a Legislative or
administrative character are submitted to
Ihe voters. In Illinois, however, in 1848, a
law was jiafse<l by which on a vote of the
electors of a county it might adopt townBhip
organizations with power lodged in the
lown meeting as iu Michigan and Wisconsin.
Seventy-five ot the 102 have already
bo voted,seven since 1S70. Atowu meeting
in Michigan is thus conducted: On the
first Monday in April every male citizen
who has resided in the State vix months
and in the township the_ten days proceeding
has tlierigbt of participating. Thesunervisor,
the executive officer of the township,
presides, and he and the justice of
the peace whose term;of office soonest ex
pilCD ttUU U1C IUVWIBI1I{I tICI K UUUStllUlU lue
inspectors of election. The electors, may
regulate the keeping and sale of gunpowder,
the licensing of dogs and the main*
tainance of hospitals, atid may order the
innoculation of all in the township and
raise money for sustaining any suits in
which the town may become engaged, as
also for roads and bridges, the poor and
other township expenses. The-voters in
town meeting are also to decide how much
of the proceed* of the one mill tax on every
dollar of the valuation shall be applied
for the purchase of books for the towmship
library, the remainder going to schools,
the annual reports of the various township
officers charged with the disbursement
of money also report at this time. Id
short whatever concerns the township only
is in the control of the people. Yet there
are some minor differences from the New
England town meeting. In Michigan the by
lausand regulations are varied in character,
because that part of the township
where the inhabitants are most numerous,
and for whose regulation many laws are
necessary, is set otTas an incorporated vil
lage, as in toe central amies, wun provisions
for managing in large measure their
own affairs, though in most Suites subject
to the township in some tbiuga. Similar
uowers are lodged in the town-meetiugs of
Wisconsin, Minnesota'and Illinoifl. Minnesota
as a territory had the eounty sys-.
tern, there b/ing no incorporated townahipa.
On becoming a State in 185S the
Illinois system whs adopted bodily,
changed again at the end of two years for
the county system, but soon the New England
settlers compelled a return to the
the township system. In some important
respects the New York town-meeting has
less power than further West, as witness
the provision allowing the town highway
commissioner to expend $250 a year without
the vote of the town.
Q ?
"We have reserved to the close the consideration
of the relations of local goverumens
to public education. A government
like ours, resting on public opinion, must
educate the voters. Convinced of this,
Jefferson, Madison and others of our early
statesmen drafted the ordinance of May L'O,
17S5, which gave one section of land a mile
square in every township in new States
and Territories for school purposes, to be
kept as an inalienable fund. In accordance
with this ordinauce and that of 1848
introduced by Senator Douglas, which
gives two sections instead of one, there
have been given.to 11)States arid 8 Territories
for primary school education over 10(5,000
square miles, or nearly as much as all
New England and New York. A wiser
provision was never made by government,
but its value is not confined, as is usually
supposed, to its direct effects on public
school education. As the immigrants
surged westward they found
a vast educational fund awaiting
them, but to secure its benefits local organization
of school districts and local taxation
war necessary. The public fund was
notsutlicient without but acted as a great
stimulus. Now.what has been the result?
l?rtkoia una uirwuiy tiiy kciiuui uisinuis
where the voters mept at annual and
special meeting to diseues and vote local
taxes for everything relating to school purposes.
In short the district meeting is
modeled after the town meeting for which
it is the fi:t:n$ school. Ln 1SS0, some 35,000
of the 100 000 people in Southern
Dakota catne from Michigan, Wisconsin,
Minnesota, Illinois and other States which
have complete local government, and the
town meeting has already been introduced
by popular vote in the more thickly settled
counties. Montana, equal in size td Da:
kota, lias too small a population as yet
(only 40,000) for township organization;
but bere,r too, we . find school
districts 105' in 7 number with
local powers. The sami}'.may' be said of
Idaho, Washington territorv, Oregon, ."Wyoming,
Colorado, Nevada, California, Kansas
and Nebraska. The township six miles
square is impossible in Colorado, where
the peoplfl live in the mountains and valleys/along
the banks ol streams or on the
plains where the laud can be'irrigated.
Nevada has begun township organization,
although most of the power resides in the
county commissioners/ Township' organization
aimilarWtHat of Indiana has just
been provided for iu the constitution of
California. Kansas has 900 townships,
similar to thofle of Indiana, with township
ollicers, but without the town-meeting,
rrovwion was made for township organization
iu Nebraska in the constiUJtipn of
1877, and two acta in accordance with it
have been ulnce passed but vetoed by the
Governor. In Ohio anil Indiana and Iowa
tho voters are required to approve the expenditure
of money for school buildings
and a few other purposes. Missouri adopted
optional township organiration in 1871) and
already thirteen of the 114 couuticH have
voted it. Here, too, great power is lodged
in the voters in district meeting, but as
elsewhere subject to utrict limitation in the
amount which thev can raise. Thus it can
bo wen that the increase of local powers
has been unprecedented during the lout
decade and seemn destined to continuo
until all the great West and Northwest lias
experienced its beuefits.
in connection with tho number of northern
settlers now going South and the interest
in education there it is important to
notice that few towns in South Carolina,
have recently incorporated themselves for
local taxation for school purposes, and the
movement is rapidly spreading. An atemnt
is now being tnnue to introduce it
in North Carolina. The people already
have the right of local taxation lor
school purpose in Kentucky, Tennessee
and West Virginia, while
in Virginia and Alabama, the school
officers are now rwiuire^ to call meetings
of the patrons of the schools and consult
with them concerning school matters.
These movements toward local government
are very recent and rapidly increase,
especially if the National Government in
giving money to public education, as is
proposed, shall couple it with the condition
that an equal amount Bhall be raised by
local taxation. Thin has been done in
some of the northwestern States. As the
New England town grew up around the
church so the western and southern town
is centering its political life about the
school.
EIUIITY AND KIUIITEEN.
An Kx|ic?lant Urlitft Dlu|ipean nt the
l.asl Moment.
Philadelphia, September 7.?A grayheaded,
gray-bearded, wrinkled-faced man
of 80 years, leaning on the well-rounded
arm of a buxom, rosy-cheeked and blackeyed
country lass of L8 years, at noon yesterday
walked into the Central Avenue
Hotel, on Market street, below Ninth, and
asked to be provided with accommodations.
' "Oh! rooms for yourself and daughter,
is it?" remarked the liotel clerk..
"N'ot exactly," whimpered the old gentleman;
"I want adoublo room for myself and
wife. That's the size of it," turning and
addressing the girl at his side. Only the
monosyllable "Yea" escaped from hei
pretty lips.
The man was requested to register. Slowly
he scratched his autograph in the bitblack
book?"John M. Blest and wife, Maryland."
lie was ossigued to his room and
while he performed his ablutions the reputed
wife waited patiently in the parlor
Dinner being ready the ill-mated couple
ambled into the diningroom, where he af<
fnrilpil miu?h nmiicumiinf tr\
by his loving attentions to the maiden. He
carefully placed the dainty morsels of food
on her plate and besought his "little dear"
in the blandest manner to appease her
appetite. This she did with a vengeance.
Mr. Blest was as attentive as a man could
possibly be. They were noticed by all the
people in the room, and when they made
their exit many could not refrain from
laughing outright.
As soon as they emerged from the dining
room Mr. Blest hobbled up to the desk
and cautiously whispered to the clerk: "I
ain't married, but I am going to be. Can't
you direct me to a minister near by ? Don't
let on but what we are man and wife."
The accommodating clerk oved his questioner
in wonder for a few inomeuts, and
then quietly told him of the residence of a
man of the cloth who would unite them in
the bonds of matrimony.
' Thank you, thank you," chuckled Mr,
Blest. "Come, my dear," said he to his
companion, "let's take a little walk." But
"the dear" bent down to the old man's
ear and whispered something about a wed
ding dress. He again had recourse to his
friend the clerk; to whom he conlided tbt
imciii^cm-c. one w uuio iu get ? mil new
rig." He was directed to a neighboring
establishment, whither he trembling led
the prospective bride. Half an hour elapsed
before Mr. Bleat reappeared. When he
did his face was radiant with joy. "You
just ought to see her," he said to the clerk,
"bhehas got a real ailk dress, and it's suet
a beautiful blue color. The lady is
altering it to make it fit. She will b<
here in a quarter of an hour. Oh Dul
she is looking nice." and the mar
from Maryland slid into a yawning chaii
and calmly awaited the arrival of the fail
one. It waa not.long before she carnt
dowu the street bedecked in a gorgeoui
I blue silk and a ravishing-looking hat, whict
a Chestnut street belle might well be prout
1 of. A dainty parasol waa clasped in one
hand, while from the other dangled a paii
j of eight-button kids. New shoes adornet
her feet, and a block-figured sash of a lux
uriant color, in harmony with the rest o
the outfit, encircled her waist. When th<
vision ol loveliness came Bailing down tin
street the old man ran eagerly forward t(
meet her. She smiled and sweetly re
quested some money to purchase a pair o
corsets, which was immediately given her
Then the old man sat down aijain to awai
herreturn. A halfofau hour passed;an hou:
went by, and still the fair one reinainet
away. Mr. Blest became greatly excited a
her inexplicably absence, and sought the
clerk for advice. He said lie was afraid sh<
had got lost Thti afternoon passed ant
night came on, and yet the young misi
continued among the missing. The Folic*
Department was notified, and inquiry wai
made at every police station-house in th?
city, but not' one ray of intelligence re
sneering her whereabouts was obtained
Slowly and sorrowfully the disappointec
groom returned to his hotel, and after in
Bulging in copious draughs of the ardenl
was led gently to bed, where he passed th<
night in single blessedness.

Washington, September 7.?The Attorney
General resumed b!s address lliis
morning in the Star route trial! lie said
bo was not hero to pick up chips and bIiuv*
tags in the rase, but to present tho facts
concisely. He had listened to tho vehement
appeals to the jury of ono of the defendants'
counsel not to allow themselves
to be influenced by popular opinion. This
could only be regarded us an insult. It

was hounding down these men from party
considerations. "Why," said he with energy,
''these men beloug to the''Government
party, was it reasonable to
suppose they would be persecuted?
What motive was tliero for
Buch persecution? The motive was that the
papers of the Department showed a waste
of money. In the West there were very
scandalous stories in circulation ot bribery
and of corruption. Should not a mau in
the civil f service be regulated by the same
rules which influenced a soldier? lie was
prompt enough to demand an investigation
when his honor was impugned. He persecuted
these men! He did not know them.
Ho only recognized them by sight. Did
Mr. James know them, or MacVengli,
when they started this investigation? The
defendants bad been defeated on the outposts;
they had lost their battle in the skirmish
line. *
McSweciiey had said, when he opened
the case, that he knew all about it. He
would produce papers and witnesses who
would disprove all the charges. And why
had this not been done? Where were thfj
letter books?where the witnesses? It was
rather a left-handed compliment toward
his client for Judge Wilson to assume that
it was proof presumptive of Brady's innocence
tbat tie had not stolen these damaging
papers from the Department. Kvery
. criminal left similar traces behiad hitn,
and the same assumption was boldly held
out when they were discovered. AVliy did
not Brady consult the records of the oilicc
i for information? \Vhv had he listened tc
. postmasters, to lawyers, who threatened to
make public complaint if these thingH were
persisted in? But he consulted his own
arbitrary, corrupt, seltish will. This is Llie
; man who was deceived. This was the man
. who, when indicted, turned around with
his cold-blooded, vicious, callous nature
and said: "Oh! I was cheated; I was deceived
by these men; they are rascals and
rogues."
Brady was a good judge of a rascal and
was right that tune. Yes, he surrendered
i all! all!! all!!! of them, and was virtually
! testifying against his*associates to save
himself. These men would be willing to
have Rerdell convicted, and another, il
necessary, so long as they, the ringleaders!
got oir. Mr. Brewster produced a tabulated
statement containing a summary of the
1 expedition and increases allowed upon the
routes named in the indictment, which
showed a total expenditure of $378,040 for
these purposes. On twelve routes the com
I tractors'profits aggregated $140,900, and
: these men never owned an animal on a
route. The men who did the duty, who
; were exposed to those terrible wind*
; sweeping or?r 4,000 miles of ice and snow,
got no pay.
For days paBt the jury had been told
there was a* fatal variance between' the
proofs presented and the indictment
1 Counsel had devoted all their time, not to
v.ivautug iucicjjiiiuuuu Ul UlCir wnciiio,
not to making out their innocence, but to
exclaiiniug that there was this fatal variance,
to attempt to break through the indictment
In conclusion, the Attorney
General B&iil lie felt it incumbent upon
himself to devote the last few words oi liis
address to a brief resume of the dry details
of the case and he produced from his uoten
a list of all orders made by Brady in connection
with the routes embraced in the in
I dictment..
He thought he had shown that .Stephen
1 W. Dorsey.was the originator of this whole
scheme. I'he evidence showed that in nine1
ty-six distinct instances this innocent, ig1
norant man had been concerned in trans '
actions. Was he to be shielded beeaust
- he had been a Senator? Was the .Senate to b(
1 converted into a sanctuary for scoundrels'
r He would sooner see the .Senate abolished;
sooner have monarchy established. Be5
cause he was a Senator it Mas said he could
* not do such things. Aaron Burr pre
} sided over the Senate. Vile things en'
tered everywhere. Arnold was an nssoci!
ate of "Washington. This man (l)orecyl
J was in the Senate, and he had nothing tc
I do with the business?nothing! He uiel
* Mr. Boone and perfected his business ar
* rangeinents in November. He furnished
J the security for all the contracts. His clerk
5 tilled out the proposals. He endorsed notei
1 for. Miner, Peck >k Co. Keceiver Keyset
* told him who Miner, Pock & Co. were. l it
' dealt with Stephen W. Dorsey, with Vaile
* and with Miner. S. W. Dorsey wrote to
t Josephs, tlie sub-contractor, that he "was
[ personally interested in the contract.
1 After,the jury in the Star route cases had
' been excused for the day, Judge Wylie
i said it lmd come to his ears that members
| of the jury had been approached in n most
' disgraceful way in attempts to influence
3 their action. lie had tirst heard of it about
3 a week neo, when lie hail received most
3 direct and positive information of this char3
acter. Ho had then advised the jury to Bay
' nothing about it, as he did not wish
: to stop the progress of the case.
1 Within the past twenty-four hour?,
* however, these wolves that snrt
rounded the jury had become fiercer and
2 bolder, and upon hearing of one attempt
more brazen and villainous than other?,
he had felt such indignation that he had
nearly advised the juror to shoot down
' such a man on the spot. He had thought
t that, hut had not advised it He now ad9
jured the juryman to spurn such men with
l the toe ol their foot, and turn from them
c with scorn. He wished to warn these rneu
r that they were not to commit such out3
rages without punishment?alter this trial
f perhaps an examination would follow.
l General Henkle immediately rose snd

I'lTrauvKOH, September 7.?Mr. David
)liver, in a conversation yesterday, gave
Kwitive assurance that the Arm of which
le is a member, will do nothing until they
itart up with the old men. Said he: "The
ondition of the market, however, together
villi other circumstances, which it is un?
lecessary to detail, does not necessitate an
arly resumption of operations."
The owners of the Bessemer Steel works
it Homestead, deny tho statement pubished
to the effect that a quarrel in the
ompany had'caused the shuttiug down of
ho works.
The ollicers of tho company say that the
)ersons interested in the firm met on Tues*
??/ uueriiuuu iuhi uu uiuercnix* ui upiuion
listed among them. Manager Williams hat
lot been discharged, as the rumor alleged,
ind the works will resume just as soon a*
he state of trade will justify it. The company
intends to trace the story to its origilource
and call somebody to account if it \i
iound that the report was started with the
ntention ef injuring the prospects of the
nil!.
In speaking of the district meeting the
Labor Tribune to-day publishes an article
which says:
"Tlus interviews with mill owners, published
almost daily, all indicated that they
were contesting the scale more with the
dew to injuring the association than because
they objected to the advance in wages
iudof course it was a foregone conclusion
that no concession could be made under
juch pressure. If the newspapers inisrej*resented
the sense of the manufacturers1
uuion it was very easy to have published
i definite denial. So fur as appears from
;uh iuce 01 * returns me convention was
justified iu inferringthat the aim wastodiB*
jrganize the association. The fact that the
Chicago Convention revised the rules governing
mill committees ho thoroughly us to
remove all reasonable objection seems to
be of little moment to the mill owner's
union once it was determined to assault the
Amalgamated Association with intent to
kill. The lack of appreciation of that
voluntary action of the convention could
have no other result than to knit the association
together in a reaffirmation of her
June scale."
A correspondent writing from Sharpsburg,
say*:
"1 called upon some of the most prominent
employes of the Etna mill, and was
informed that every member of the Amalgamated
Association approved of the action
nf the district meeting, and that they were
determined to Btaiul our, if necessary,
until next June; further, that they did not
think that there would be half a dozen ol
the non-union men willing to go in until
the strike was settled, ami that those who
were reported as being willing to work last
week now deny that they ever had such
intention. The lap-weld department has
resumed work with sufficient iron to run
ll.u... n Tl.uv u u...i
casting iron yesterday, and more was on
the way. The tirin state that they can buy
it cheaper than they can make it-*"
The manufacturers, who are interrogated
still declare their intention of holding oul
against the new scale, and none can be
found who manifest any great desire to
make an eflbrt to start with new men. Mr.
J. D. Weeks, who is supposed to be thoroughly
conversant with the manufacturers'
sentiments, suid this morning: "The workmen
are mistaken when they think that
the manufacturers have a special desire to
crush out the Amalgamated Association,
rbe course adopted by the men at their
meeting on Monday if persisted in will
break the association sooner than would
any measure taken by the manufacturers,
for internal dissension will in time cause a
complete disintegration of the union. The
manufacturers will make no move to close
the present struggle, on that you may rely,
for as the workers brought on the trouble
they must be the first to propose a settlement."
Youngstow.v, September 7.?The exciting
scenes of yester 'ay in the iron business
were not renewed .to-day, and quiet
ness reigns supreme. Machinists and other
workmen are earnestly at work making
necessary repairs at Brown,Bonnell it Co's,
the indications pointing to an early' starting
of the mills. They have alroady secured
a number of men to take charge ol
their furnaces, and state that others have
promised 10 come to worK., Arrangements
have been m.\de by the linn to board ami
lodge their employes on the mill grounds,
fora time at least, buildings having been
prepared for that purpose. It is believed
that they will be ready to make a start on
Monday morning. Numbers of ironworkers
are present at each train for Jhe purpose
of interviewing any who may come to
work here. The rumor published in several
papers that a man who had come here to
work had been assaulted has no foundation
in fact, as thus far there has been no manifestation
of violence and it is believed
one will occur. The following card was
inserted by Brown, Bonnell & Co., in the
XeiL'n-lteyuttr. .
