million of dollars to the company.

ELECTION DAYS AS LEGAL HOLIDAYS.
. i DAYS.
The Legislature-iof India'na'has
before it a bill making all general
election days legal holidays. The
State of New York some time ago
enacted a similar law, which at the
last election was found 'to be produc
tivc of excellent results, the better
class of votexj appearing in much
greater numerical force at the polls

One tf tire dangers to which our in
stitutions'are exposed is absentee

demonstrated that the observance
of election days as holidays tends
to fring out a much fuller vote

would seem worthy the considers

IMPROVED POSTAL CARD.
It is said that the Berlin postofllce
is abont to introduce an improve
merit upon the original postal card
system. Acard is to be provided,
on which a message may be sent and
a reply retained at once. The orig
inal sender,;by paying the trifling
postage' both ways, may thus secure
an answer at once, the person ad
dressed only having p write a line
or so on the card when he receives
it, and return it to tte postman.
This is a great convenience worth
considering in the issue of postal
cards in this country. By the way,
now that congress is in session, wc
ought tohave the cards vcry'soon,

LITTLE SAMMY COX.
Cox to manufacture public opinion
against the President in regard
the Louisiana trouble, are charac
teristic of that pin-feathered stale
man. He brought forward in the
House a pornpous preamble nd res
olution setting forth "That where
as the State government of Louis
iana was conducted under orders is;
sued from the- Federal courts, sup
ported by Federal bayonets," the
President be requested to commu
nicate why he had interfered.
It need hardly be explained that
he "orders" of the United State
Court were simply its deliberate
judgment in a formal suit, regularly
brought before it, and against which
appeal may be legally taken, and
that the President's "interference"
consisted in his simply directing the
United States troops to aid the Uni
ted States Court if called upon",
executing its judgment. It is diffi
cult for any oneexcepta microscop
ic Democrat, like Sunset, to see how
the President could have well done
more or less than he did in the'mat1
ter. Sammy had adroitly calcula
ted that his resolution would be
mean and offensive that it would

BOUTWELL AND THE SENATE.
Hopes have been enlertained in
many quarters that Mr. Boutwell
would -forego his aspirati jns for the
United States Senate and consent to
remain at the head of the nationa
finances. But the hopes, it appears,
are not to be realized, as it is au
thoritatively announced that Mr.
Boutwell fully intends to be a cand
idate for the Senate; and, ' further
more, that in no event will he re
gain in the Cabinet longer than the
close of Gen. Grant's .present term.

THE VICE PRESIDENT.
The question is pertinently put
whether the iYicc .President of the
United States can resign and go in
to other business at his will. Ta
ken in connection with the recent
action of some, of the States which
voted for Mr. Greeley, the query is
one of importance. The Vice Pres
ident is elected for four years. He
was ready to accept the situation
provided the-people endoreed-him,-
and was anxious to occupy the chair
as presiding officer of the Senate.
This is an honor, of course, but
rather empty in its nature after all,
unless through the providence of
God the President should be remov
ed, as in the cases of Harrison, Tay
lor and Lincoln, when the Vice
President would become the Exe
cutive officer of the nation.
Ever since the death b'f Mr.
Greeley there have been rumors that
Mr. Colfax- would assume the edi
torial chair of the" Tribune, and re
sign his office. as' Vice President
This.mav. or- "may not be-true, and
just here the question arises, wheth
er a person elected Vice President
can, at his will, resign without de
trimenfrto the majority which elect
ed him. "He 'is chosen, for, four

Chamber,, in accordance with his of
ficial oath, to discharge' the duties'
pertaining to his 'office. In case of
the death of the President he must
take the position vacated.
He is to stand in readiness, for
higher functions, should disease or
violence remove his chief: and ex
perience has taught us that neither
of these dangers is wholly fanciful
The succession to the Presidential
office is perhaps sufficiently secured.
as the Constitution has arranged it
but the defection of the officer who
stands next in the line of promo
tion would introduce too many
risks. It was never contemplated.
and down to this day it has not
been discussed, that so great an of
fice could be resigned by a man
whom the people had so honored
while he was in possession of health
and strength to fulfill his duties,
If the Vice President of the Uni
ted btatcs is allowed to throw up
his trust, for any consideration of
private business, what seal of sanct
ity remains unbroken ,in this land?
To reach' a climax, it only needs
that a President should notify Con
gross that his private interests re
quire him, to resign, and go jnto.a
more lucrative business. The charg
cs so readily made against us by
foreigners, that money takes prece
dence of everything among us,
would receive an all but crowning
proof of its truth, if .Mr. Colfax en
ters the Tribune office before his
term is completed. Of his possible
value to the Tribune we say not a
word; with the interests of the Uni
ted States on one side and those of
any establishment of business on
the other, we cannot hesitate for a
moment. Pittsburgh Dispatch,

RIGHTS OF POSTMASTERS.
' Letters sent through. the postofllce
are not,tO;be opened by postmasters
or their employees on any account,
even although the communications
sent are in violation of law. This
is the opinion of the Attorney Gen
eral of the United States and until
reversed jy a, competent court is
law to the department Although
it may give some facilities to swind
ters,. venders of obscene literature,
the decision is a proper one. Any
other would leave the door open to
abuses of what should be regarded
as a sacred trust the sanctity of
private correspondence whilepassing
through the mails. Once give an
evil-inclined or prying officer a dis
cretion as to open letters believed
to be unlawful communications, and
he soon lapse into the habit of sus
pecting letters he may have some
other motive 4pr looking into. Ab
solute .sanctity for all letters is the
only safeguard. As to the swind
lers and venders of obscene litera
ture who sometimes take advantage
of post office facilities to aid them
m tneir nefarious worK, tucre are
other methods of dealing with them,
in the regular course of postal pro
ceedings and by due course of law.
All good postmasters and nostal
employees will be glad to hear of
this decision, and on all others
the restraint will be salutary.

postmasters who are not appointed
by the President Rules, framed
under the Civil Service, are in course

GRANTING OF LANDS.
The platforms of the National
and State Convention of Republt
cans both take strong ground
against any further grant of public
lands for railroad or other internal
improvements, affirming, and right
ly too, hat the farms of Uucle Sam
belonging, not to monopolies, but
to the brave pioneers who go in ad
vance of civilization, and prepare
the way. .Notwithstanding this em
phatic and emiently proper expres
sion or the wise policy of the party
We learn that the lobby at Wash
ington literally swarms with excit
ed individuals clamoring for gov
ernment aid in lands in support of
hundred odd railroads scattered
over the plains and through the
mountains of the west We hope
Congress will be simply just, and
dismiss every enterprise of thi:
character, and thereby sustain the
promises of the party not only, but
adhere to the wise policy which
holds the public lands open for ac
tual settlement Hands off, gentle
men,no more land grabs for the
present Hereafter lands for the
land les3 pioneers not an acre for
the lackland, monopolies.
FOR INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS
The bill to pay Ohio, Indiana
and Illinois two per cent of the re
ceipts of all public lands sold with
in their borders has passed .the
House. The explanation of the
bill is that Congress failed to ex
pend the amount for internal im
provements within those States
agreed upon in their Enabling acts,
In the case of Ohio, Congress
provided that five per cent of the
proceeds of all public land sold
should be devoted to internal im.
provemedts, three per cent to be
expended by the States, and two
percent, by the general government
to complete the national road
through the State. The road never
was completed, and most of the
money derived from land sales was
spent upon the portion of it lying
in Maryland, Virginia and Penn
sylvania. The Indiana Enabling
act provided that two per cent, of
the land sales should be expended
ty tne general government for the
construction of roads leading to the
State, and that three per cent, be
paid to the State. Illinois was
given three per cent, for the educa
tional purposes, and Congress
agreed to spend two per cent, for
roads in the State. In neither
case was the obligation of the
government fulfilled. Jn 183G the
policy was changed, and States sub
scqucntly admitted were guaranteed
me wuoie nve per cent, to ex
pend as they chose. It is charged
tuat under an act passed in 18oS),
making good to Mississippi the
value of two per cent of her public
lands. Ohio, Indiana and Illinois
are entitled to recoverjbut the law
has never been carried out The
claim of the three States amount to

The Court of Assizes at Constan-
tina has just tried twenty-one Arabs
of the TJelezma, chaiged -with the
massacre of twelve French, colonists
in April last Tne victims were all
employed at some extensive saw
mill situated in a rorrestaooiit ten
miles from Batan, and .belonging to
Mr Pfnndomme, who was one of
the murdered. The natives had al
ways beeaTOnftiendly tenns"wilh"
the Europeans tnere until auouc tne
month of march, when an insurrec
tion broke out in the province.
The tone of the Arabs suddenly
changed, they became first, more re
served, and then insolent,- boasting
that. France was ruined, and that
all the French would soon disap
pear from .Algeria. Some of the
tribes, however, remained. If not
friendly, at least less hostile. -Lne
revolt had become, almost general,
and on the 21st of April the. Cheik
Brahim of the Halymias informed
the little colony that they were no
longer safe in the forest and offered
to escort them to juatan.- ne .euro-
peans, consisting ol thrleen-men,
one woman named Dorlita; 'and her
four children set out the next morn
ing accompanied by -Brahim1-and
about-forty of; his men; ''They: had
but a short distance, on- theirijour-
ney, when, they jwere warned: not to
proceed further, as.tiie Arabs would
nQt'aUpir.them.to pass.,; After.some
hesitation tucy resoivedjto continue
confining in the, assurances ,of tho
Cheik that they, were under his
charge"; ,Jjut on arriving .in a. ravine
they we'reT suddenly attacked by
large body of 'the rebels. , Six" of
the pa'rty.who were in the rear, suc-
ceeded in escaping, but twelve of
the men were massacred, jume.
Dorliat owed her life to' a native
named Abdallah, at the sawmills,
who on seeing her in tears before
starting, said to her, woman, you
have nothing to fear; no harm will
be done to you or to your children
as for the men, I will answer for
them. As she continued te weep,he
added. Listen, when you see the
guns pointed-at your breast say this
prayerJUlah ! Allah ! .iUahomed ra
coul Allah'!, and you will .be saved.
He also taught the same prayer to
her children. In the .midst of the
slaughter several Arabs had leveled
their fire-arms at her to shoot her,
when she remembered Abdellah's
lesson, and throwing herself on her
knees to them, repeated the invoca
tion.' The murderers stopped, made
her say it over again, and asked,
Do you mean it? On her replyin
in'the affirmative they spared her
but stripped her entirely naked, and
took from her three of her children
she only recovered'them' thirty-two
days latter, and one of tnem died o
a sab.er wound in tue head, receiv.
ed during the fight. The woman's
husband was killed, and although
her life .was saved she was grossly
outraged by an Arab who had of
fered to conduct her to a place
safety. Thcnalives who had start,
ed with the party as an escort either
fled or joined the hostile natives

accused now about to trial, twelve
were condemned to death and three

A BEAR STORY.
A good story reaches us now ot
an adventure up in Koscommon
county, a few days ago, wherein a
celebrated Saginaw land looker cuts
a prominent figure. It seems .that
the hunter of lands was out alone
in that -region, viewing the lay of
the land and the heighth of the
timber, and while plodding along he
was attracted by a small mass ot
something blaeK immediately in
Urontof himr which appeared-to be
alive. The black mass turned out
to be a young cub. Land looker
thought he would taue mm into
camp, and having'with him a water
proof overcoat, he at once unrolled
it and in a short time had overhaul
ed the cub and thrown the coat over
it Next, to' secure the little fellow,
the woodsman untied - the straps
around his boots, and proceeded to
strap up the infant bear. While
engaged in this process, the cub,not
used to the confinement ol the cra
dle, or stays, of such nonsense,
squealed, and out ot a patch of
chapparel a few feet, to the rear of
our hero, came a corresponding
squeal, only much .lower, and. more
motherly-like. , Our land-looker
took in. the situation' at a glance,
and in' another glance he. was;in the
top of a six inch basswood, which
mustihave grown there Tonhis.spe
cial. benefit From, his "eyrie"'' nor
lofty restingjriaee in-.the top of the
friendly ;basswoo'd;the land-l6oker
took a last- f on d look- t" his-'water-
proof.-asitiwas converted into .strip's
about-an lnc&nride, by the gentle
mother of- the "untam'bed cub. Nor
until she had released her offspring,
and made a complete -wreck of the
coat, and gone her way, did the
gentleman "up a tree" give vent to
anything louder than suppressed
breathing, and he didn t stop to
pick up his coat, cither, after his
descent from the tree. It is said
that good time was made by him
from the foot of. that basswood to
camp. The land-looker says that
when he firstsaw that cub he thought
it was his. Now he thinks he must
have been mistaken. He says he
never had much of a passion for
cubs no way.
