Democratic papers of the country. The
two organs at Washington City, the liepublican

no Cash, nor did it stieakiugly tluow
olT its name. It had nothing to do with
the "unti-ikmrbon crusade," but made a
square fight. It would he just as near correct
for our neighbor to claim for the Coalition
the result-in Oregon or in Maine,as to try
to claim the scoop in West Virginia. The
Democrats in that State did not make a
united and vigorous eilort. The Republican
were well organized, well led and
their canvass was splendidly managed.
They shouldered neither the Administration
nor Maboueism, neither Stalvfrartisni
nor auti-Stalwartism, but pulled all toJMlier."

WasimngtoN, October 19.?"To facilitate w
their work," said a gentlemen who con- "Y
versed with several members in New York <j
yesterday, "Ihe TariffCommission has spill J1
into sub-committees, to whom special quest 1
tions liave been usaiKued. Ex-President A
Hayes and Garland will take cafe, ol wbo) P

"Do you think tlio Com in iasion' will 8t
make any kind of a fair and acceptable ro* ni
port 7" J *
"That is difllcultto answer. Haves, Oar- \
land, Kenner, Oliver and Porter nave had q
well defined ideas ol what tariff ought to u
be to suit their "individual interests 'from \v
the start. No amount of contrary evir ^
deuce could shake their views and pur; Ht
poses. Underwood and ltoteleraru a little H
uncertain, and _would probably have no w
hesitation in agreeing to the views of their u
colleagues, providing that there was some ft)
valid assurance that the internal revenue ti
system would bo speedily abolished. Both y
of these gentlemen are liberal - In their q
views, apd regard the'internal!; revenue jr
system aa more-vicious than a hitzh t>ro- ?i
tective tariff. Ambler is rather a~coiiuu- w
drum, lie hits no bigoted views on auy u
special matter ot-? the tariff w
legislation, lie lms paid more at ten- ?
tion to the evidence tlian any e,
. other Commissioner and his questions to j
witnesses have shown a general desire lo ei
j get at-fucts.- I think he will act as a check U(
' on extreme protectionist measures. Colo* j
' nel'McMahon, while generally-acting in U;
eoncert with Oliver, l'orter and Kenner, ^
who compose what is called the business e,
, coin mi**"", is.bent ou simplifying the pres- w
ent tariff la ab, bo'as to facilitate the col- e(
lector'b work and avoid annoyances to e,
i importers and merchants. This, I think, Ie
. will be the most important work of the Vl
Commission. MufcMahon thoroughly un- j
derstands the working of tlie Custom 0I
' House, and almost every suggestion ol real j{1
practical, value in relation to the work has ^
. come from him.") u '-j \f} j. ; r(
"" What ubout a minority report V' \ j
"It Ib juHt likely there will be a minority g.
; report?one leaning in the direction of a Q.
' tariil* for revenue, but a local change has
come over the spirit of the commission y
since Porter's unfortunate letter was pub- 0,
lished. The protective commissioners
realize tlint'they must not go us far as they j,
originally intended. They see that popular \\
Bentiment is against them. There will be y
a remodeling of the schedule. Amaintenance
of, or perhaps a slight increase in ft
the same manufactures represented by ri
Hayes, Garland, Porter, Kenner. ana jj
Oliver. Some accessions will be made to a 0
free list, and probably a scaling down in j,
the minor articles of consumption. The ^
tarill' as reported will be considerably '
changed in appearance, but I doubt very
much whether any of the vicidiis principles \
i of the present law will be removed. Il'he tj

Washington, October 19.?Col, D. B. j
, Henderson," Secretary of the Republican. ri
National Congressional Committee, - has si
beew advised of a serious, defect in the law
passed illy'the';'^Tennessee Legislature to
arrange the Congressional districts in that t]
State. If appears that the bill' for this a
purpose so "" passed the Tennessee v
Senate "and was amended in 'the jj
lower House, and through a cler- n
ical error three counties, Cumberland ?
Meigs and Rhea, whieji by..tho Seriate bill si
were assignod to the Third district were I'
omitted. The bill as amended in the _
lower house was finally agreed to by Uio tl
... t'... .i : . . i T
i senate, out me error was noi uiscovereu *
aridjVorrectedij :As a consequence these Jj
three counties nro not 'assigned to any ^
Congressional district, and the voters re- p
' aiding in tbem; should,an election beheld h
under a new law, will be debarred from
voting lor representatives' in Congress.- 0
; Col. Henderson thinks the voters of these n
i counties cannot conscientiously bo depriv
ed of their, right to vote for a representative, JJ
and if the defect is not remedied it may
vitiate] the title to a seat of every mem- h
ber elected under the new law. He baa oi
suggested to the Governor of Tenuessee to ?
, call a special session of the Legislature for c|
the purpose of remedying the defect. lc

he iron men of Pennsylvania and 'other,
ibints where "Uncle Sam's (hardware is I

aised their apprehensions was ' that a |
lontreal firm known as Scott Brothers had
een doing an ixeeedjdgly jjood business
rith American customers. The American
rou men were at a loss to understand
ow they could be beaten on their

nd hence the examination by the
