Wat O&ftune.
Tuesday Morning, April 7, 1874.
God. Butler has had bis bill to suspend
Judges Durell and Bnsteed from office pending
their impeacbmont maao tbo special order of
the house for Tuesday next.
Tbo National Bank of Commerce of Nevr York
Is reported to bo about to withdraw from its
movement to forco tbo A. & W. Sprague Mhnu
fftcturiug Company into bankruptcy. A general
assignment of all tlio property of the Company
is to be mode to tbo trustee of the creditors, its
suspended paper will bo exchanged, as before
agreed upon, for tlireo years* notes, and ita
operations will be continued without any inter
mission of work.
Resolutions strongly condemnatory of any in
flation of tho currency were brought 'before the
Chicago Board of Trade yesterday, and will bo
put to vote to-day. The Tory plain proposition
Is put forth that any currency is too plenty that
is not worth 100 cents on tbo dollar, and Con
gress is recommended to move away from repu
diation and towards a fulfillment of the national
promises to pay its creditors dollar for dollar.
The President is called on to veto any inflation
measure that Congress may pass.
Cooke, attorney of the District Government,
was examined by tho Investigating Committee
yesterday. His testimony was not givon freely.
Ho admitted that he had boon attorney for
Strong, the contractor whose chock-book showed'
payments to him,'at tho sarao time that be had
been attorney for tho District Government. As
is usual in suoh cases, this serving two masters
was for tho sake of tho servant, and tho witness
made himself the more contemptible by tho
statomont.of tho small sums for which ho had
divided his allegiance.
Mr. Storn, of tho Now York Commissioners of
Charities, has replied to tho charges of ono of
bis associates that Tweed lives in luxury .on
Blackwell's Island, and Is so slackly guarded that
ho could walk oat of prison if ho choso. Ho
says that twonty-two keepers stand between
Tweed and escape, all of whom would havo to be
bribed before ho' could regain his liberty. He
does not conceal the foot that the Boss of all tbo
thieves is treated to bettor quarters than his fel
low-convicts, and contents himself with saying
that it is not worth while to make a martyr of
Tweed by unnecessary severity.
Yesterday the' House Judiciary Committee •
listened to the deputation of South Carolinians
who ero Booking the Intorvoution of Oongross
for the tax-payors of thatßtato. To-morrow tho
ropresentatlvoa of tho present Government will
plead their coso. Tho tax-payors assort
that tho majority of tho voters of tho
State pay no taxes, and that tho burden of
taxation which falls upon tho minority is twenty
times heavier than it was before tho .War. If
tho pooplo aro driven to tho negative rebellion
of refusing to pay their taxes, Oongross must
interfere, they say, and It had bettor prevent that
calamity than lot it como and then try to euro it.
Tho Chicago produce markets wore generally
stronger yesterday, with a fair aggregate of
hnsiness transactions. Hobs pork was active,
and advanced 25a per brl, closing at

Christ Church has now throo sols of Wardens
and Vestryman. Bishop Cheney's congregation
oleotod those officers whoa thoy organized as a
Boformod Protestant Episcopal Church ; tho
mooting of tho faithful yesterday, called by
Bishop Whitohouso, ohoso a second sot; and a
third bntoh was also chosen yesterday, by a moot
ing of tho members of tho old organization. Bish
op Whltohouso’s call brought together eight per
sons {tho meeting of tho old organization which
was favorable to Cbonoy numbered forty ; tho
business mooting of the Boformod Episcopalians
was attended by sixty persons. Tbo Cheney
schism evidently has tho strength of numbers.
Only tbo barest returns aro at band this morn
ing of tho Stato election in Connecticut, but it
Is known that tho Democrats have carried tho
Stato again, and that tho Republicans havo
added to thoir losses at tho last elec
tion. There woro charter olootloaa in Ohio,
Illinois, Michigan, and lowa yesterday. In somo
casoQ tho issuo was political, and in others de
pendent upon tho jtomporanoo agitation. In !)««
Moinoa, which was a Republican stronghold in tbo
good old Umos, tho Anti-Monopolists bavo carried
the day. In Dubuque, tho Democrats bavo boon
tbo victors, and, so f&r as tbo returns show, all
tho changes aro to tho disadvantage of tho Ad
ministration. . Tho temperance question was
paramount in Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan,
a nd in tho first olono do tho Tomporanco party
seem to havo had any success. In tho other
States, tho License party havo tho majorities
with them.
Tho ovidont favor with which the pooplo havo
rocolvod tho looturos of tho Sunday-Aftornoon
Loctnro Association has attracted tho attention'
of tho Presbyterian ministers. At thoir mooting
yostorday the objects of tho Lecture Association
woro explained and dob&tod with a good deal of
Interest and diversity of opinion. Bomo of tho
clergymen thought it as irreligious to deliver
such lectures on Sunday as to ride in tho horse
cars, whilo others folt suro that St. Paul,
if ho woro horo, would accept tho invitation of
tho Association to lecture, and thought Us
scheme an admirable ono for reaching those
whom tbo Church could not, or at least did not,
attract. About ono thing tboro scomod no dif
ference of opinion. Tho Church ought to bo
able to reach with its all-important doctrines tho
very class that refuse to ontor a church-door,
and at thoir next meeting tho ministers wiU dis
cuss whether thoy can devise any popular course
of services for Sabbath afternoons that will
achiovo this result.
Secretary Richardson's voracity is called di
rectly into question by Sanborn in his testimony
before the Ways and Moans Committee. Secre
tary Richardson told tho Committee unequivo
cally that ho knew nothing whatever about tbo
contacts, or about any of tho papers in tho
case, which ho had signed as a matter of rou
tine, and without paying any attention to thorn.
Sanborn, whose testimony is agreeably straight
forward as far as it goes, says that ho talked
his contracts over with tho Boorotary half a
dozen times. He has no doubt that Mr.>, Ric
hardson know all about thorn.*' Mr. Richardson
showed tho utmost familiarity with thorn, so
much so that Sanborn wont to him for informa
tion about thorn. Sanborn avows that nono
of'tho $160,000 which ho had to pay out
of tho $210,000 ho received from tho Govern
ment went to any internal revonno officer or to
any member, of Congress, directly or indirectly.
Ho was closely examined about bis connection
with Gen. Butler. Ho bad paid him no counsel
fees. Ho had subscribed to thofuhd for helping
him . to the Governorship of Massachusetts.
Gbn.' Bailor had given him a letter
which had secured him ball in his trial in
Brooklyn. According to Sanborn’s statements,
his shoroiof tho money he has received is leas
than $50,000. Ho declines to state bow ho spent
tho sums ho had to give for information.
The Senate has passed tho Currency bill add
ing $14,000,000 to the greenback currency and
authorizing tho further issuo of $40,000,000 to
Notional Banks. Tho vote stood 20 to 24. Sen
ator Bhorman’s attempt to have some recogni
tion of a day for tho resumption of spocio pay
ments failed by tho intractable majority
of 5. Senator Conkling was equally unsuccess
ful with hia amendment forbidding any increase
of tho public dobt under tho aot. Senator Mor
ton opposed it because it would prevent tho Sec
retory of the Treasury from issuing more green
backs when they wore needed to carry on tbo
Government 1 Ho mustered a majority
of 8 to dofoat it. When tho final
vote was about to bo taken, tho moat influential
members of the Senate, of both parties, rose,
and, in brief and dignified speeches, vainly
sought to avert tho disgrace which tho ma
jority woro bout on consummating. Senator
Conkling foretold that distress and disaster
would follow, and warned his colleagues
that tho Republican party was pledged
to an opposite policy. Senators Stewart,
Antlmny. Curprmkop, and Flanagan joined In
similar protests. Senator Thurman said this
bill portended tho disappearance of the money
of tho Constitution for tho next generation.
Senator Sargent predicted tho destruction of tho
party and tho loaders that attempted to flood tho
country with irredeemable paper. Senator
Schurz said ho felt humiliated as nn American
citizen, and his fellow-countrymen will share his
chagrin.
Coroners in Now Jersey aro so numerous that
tho population by whoso demise they are aupi
ported is unutterably insignificant in proportion.
Hence tho former are continually on tho alert
for a case, and aro koen-sceutod in discovering
ono. It must he tho ocstaoy of consolation to
tho dying Jersey man to know that so Boon as ho
shall have breathed his last a couple or moro of
those human vultures will bo racing toward his
corpse like rival fire-companies to a conflagra
tion. Death must bo hailed with triple joy when
It encourages such life and action in others.
Jorsoy City was treated to such a sight a day or
two since. Two hapless victims of railroad
negligence wore taken to tho Morgue, and an
order issued by County Physician Buck to Coro
ner Parslow to hold an inquest. Coroner Beiub&rd
sniffed tho foe at a groat distance, and eagerly
flow to tho Morguo to anticipate his rivals. lie
arrived first, impaneled a jury, obtained a ver
dict, dismissed tho jurors, and had just placed
ono mangled corpse into his wagon when Buck
drove up. Boluhard diovo off with half, the
plunder, while Buck, snatching up an officer,

started In pursuit. Doing public officers, both
men had good homos, and tho clatter of hoofs as
they dualled through tho stroota of Jersey City
brought out crowds of surprised witnesses of
this Sunday pastime, Tho ohaso was a long one,
but Buck’s horse, which was fresh, overtook
Boinhard about two miles out. Tho fugitive
Ooronor Was made to disgorge tho mutilated
corpse and return homo ompty-haudod, leaving
his favored rival to hold a second inquest. Jer
sey City may bo a pleasant place to Hvo In/ hut
it is evidently not a good plaoo to dio in.
RAILWAY TROUBLE IN WISCONSIN.
Tho first roal collision botwoon tbo people on
tho ono sldo and tho railroads on tho other
promises to toko placo In Wisconsin soon after
the let of May, whon tho railroad laws passed
by tbo State Legislature toko effect. Thoao laws
establish specific rates on oaoh class of merchan
dise on oaoh class of railroads. Tho rates of
transportation by tho car-load are arranged by
strolobos of 25 miles,--that is, tboro is ono rate
for hauling a car-load 26 milos, another rate for
tho next 25 milos, and so on, a different rate for
oaoh 25 miles up to 200 milos.. Tho law provides
for tho summary punishment of any railroad
agent or officer refusing to soil tickets or to re
ooivo and deliver freight at the rates proscribed
by tho aot.
We understand that tbo Chicago & North
western and the Milwaukee & St. Paul Compa
nies have boon taking legal advlco in Now York,
ana tuac, atcor a aim uumunmuu oi mu uireu
tors, a determination has boon reached. This
Is to the effooi that it roquiros 70 por cent of the
receipts of thoao roads to oporato them in Wis
oonsin ; that tbo rooont legislation will havo tho
offoot of reducing tho receipts 80 por cont,—that
is, to tbo cost of operating tbo roads ; that If
the value of tho property is to bo destroyed, it
might as well bo destroyed by defying the law
as by obeying it; and, tboroforo, that tho of
ficers of tbo roads shall bo directed to disregard
tho law. This will. , produce a conflict at once.
If . a tiokot-agont, refusing to accept tho faro
Hied bylaw, is arrested and punished, thoy pro
pose to oloso tho ticket-office; and if a freight
agent is punished, to oloso tho frolght-offlco.
Tho trains will run by tho offending stations
without stopping. .
This conflict between tbo railways and tbo
public is inovltablo, and porb&ps it may as well
bogin In Wisconsin as in any other Stato. It
will eventually bring order oat of tbo chaotio
disorder and uncertainty wuich now prevail. It
will necessitate a settlement, —not a compro
mise, but a permanent settlement of- tho relative
rights of tho publio on tho hand and of transporta
tion companies on the other. Primarily tho rail
road companies assert that, in addition to tho
payment of thoir operating expenses, they aro
entitled to a profit oqual to tbo interest on their
dobts and a fair dividend on thoir capital. This
scorns entirely reasonable, but it necessitates an
examination into facts. What arc legitimate
operating expenses ? Tho presumption is that
tho operating expenses aro managed with care,
skill, and economy; but it may bo rightfully
asked, Aro not tho expenditures of railway com
panies wasteful and extravagant, and might thoy
not ho reduced largely? In tho next placo,
what docs tho capital stock represent? Dooslt
represent money actually invested in tho roods,
and oxpoodod in construction exclusively, or
does it represent stock dividends or distribution
of money, novor oomod? What do tbo out
oatstonding bonds represent? Do tboy repre
sent money borrowed and invested in tbo roads,
or do tboy represent money that' -onght to
havo boon expended in renewing tho tracks,
building extensions, but which was diverted
from tbo earnings of tho road to pay
dividends on stock, both roal and watered. In
somo cases in Wisconsin the railroads woro built
originally with cash and borrowed money, and
thon sold undor mortgage for comparatively
Inconsiderable sums. Thus, when a railway cost
$7,000,000, and was bought by tbo present
company for $3,000,000, aro tho publio roquired
to pay dividends on tho $3,000,000 actual cost,- or
the $7,000,000, $10,000,000, or $15,000,000 of
stock issued by tho now company ? When tbo
railroads demand fair profits, they must bo pre
pared to make fair exhibits of the capital ac
tually invested; they must bo prepared to show,
also, that thoir actual earnings aro fairly and hon
estly stated, and that thoir account of operating
expenses does not include waste and extrava
gance, and is not so doctored os to dofraud tbo
public.
Tho conflict will have another good effect. It
will disabuse the managers and stockholders of
railway companies of tho idoa that thoy aro irre
sponsible corporations. They are private cor
porations la one sense, bat thoy aro also public
corporations in tho soaso of owing obligations to
tho public in exchange for tho special privileges
thoy hold. The history of suoh corporations is
not generally in their favor, so far as affording
any evidence of consideration for the rights or
interests of tbo pcoplo. Generally thoy have
been exacting and remorseless. Tho timo has
oomo when they should bo made to fool that there
is some cheek and restraint upon them. Tho
Legislatures of 'Wisconsin and other' States, in
attempting to apply this chock, may have drawn
It too tightly, or may not have used the proper
moans. But tho unrestrained power of the
railroads and their unlicensed assumptions have
boon overturned, and forever. Exactly whore
tho lino of prerogative is to ho drawn is to bo
established by just finch a conflict as is now Im
pending in Wisconsin, and which threatens to
stop every train on ovory road in the State.
There Is to be a settlement of this whole sub
ject, and, while railroads mustboleft free enough
to bo profitable to their owners, it must-bo an
honest profit upon tho capital actually invested,
and resulting from receipts honestly administer
ed, as shown by accounts honestly kept by re
sponsible persons.
CITY BUILDINGS,
The proposition that tho City Qovornmont
shall rent tho llonoro Block, corner of Adams
and Dearborn streets, for public offices, has
elicited offers of other buildings for tho uso of
tho city. Tho owners of thoso buildings, of
course, oxpoot a liberal rent for their promises,
and tho several offers aro now ponding before
tho Common Council.
Before tho Common Council tako any steps In
tho way of renting buildings for public uso, wo
call attention to tho fact that tho city is the
owner of tho old Guatom-Houao alto and of tho
standing walls. Tills property is worth over
$200,000. At an expenditure of $76,000 it can
be fitted up to accommodate tho oity offices and
also oil tho courts. It would ho a utilization of
public property now Idle and unproductive. Tho
whole cost of restoring and refitting tho build
ing would probably not exceed ono year’s rental
of any promises that would bo sufficient for tho
public necessities.
As tho city must provide now and comfortable
quarters for the courts and city offices untiUhe
now Court-House and City Hall shall bo built and
completed | and as that now building will not bo
ready for ooaapanoy for several years, perhaps
not beforo 1880, economy, common prudence,
and ordinary iatolllgonco suggest that the olty,
Instead of renting prlvato buildings at $75,000 a
year for flvo or six years, shall put this old Pos
t and Oustora-Uouso building in order, and
fit it up for tho use of tho public offices. One
year’s rental of prlvato property would suffice to
put tbo Post-Office building In complete order
for occupancy, and when so restored It will bo
bettor for all tho purposes needed than any
building not designed and orootod for public
uses. Action by tbo Oonuell now could soenro
tbo completion of this building in tlmo for occu
pancy by Jauuary next.
THE TOWN ELECTIONS.
To-day that inconsiderable portion of tho
pooplo of Ohicago not tunning for town
offices will assemble at tho polls to oxorolso tbo
inestimable privileges of American citizens, and
oloefc officers for tho ensuing year. For once, at
least, voters will not bo troubled with a paucity
of candidates from whom to chooso. Almost
every issue, every nationality, every color, ov
ory religion, and every occupation may bo found
represented. As usual, there aro very few candi
dates who have not run before, and very few
who havo not boon In offloo more or loss since
they wore old enough to qualify. It is mainly a
lot of damaged and sooond-hand goods, but,
wmio tuu quuiuy may uo very poor, no com
plaints can bo found with tbo quantity. As there
aro no party linos drawn in this contest except
about thoso persistent lovers of tholr country who
are still engaged in tho effort to abolish slavery
or to got their drinks on Sunday, tho average
voter has a free field in which to roam, and wo
presume if bo votes early and votes often no
objection will be made, provided ho votes for
tho right man at tho right place, and votes iu
dofatigably. Those who havo not time to can
vass tho merits of tho regiment of candidates
will do well to go it blind and they will not go
for amiss. Fortunately there is no danger of
tho towns being governed any worse than they
have been, and as tho law now prevents Town
Treasuries from being depleted and town officers
from taking more than they can collect, tax-pay
ors can breatbo more freely, whatever dynasty
of patriots may oomo into power. Our
advfco to our readers is, that if, after
a careful search among tbo candi
dates, they can find any respectable men, vote for,
them. If they cannot, they can oxorolso that
blessed privilege of an American freeman, and
vote for nobody.
Town elections also occur throughout tbo
State to-day. Oulsido of Chicago theseolcctiouu
possess moro than ordinary significance, as tho
farmers* organization is taking a band in them,
and if it is generally successful tho foundation
is laid upon which it will work for more impor
tant results, and by moans of which it will ox
tond its influence against old party corruptions;
Their triumph in theso elections will not bring
much comfort either to Bopubhcan or Demo
cratic wire-pullers, as it loaves them no secure
base for their operations. From the general
spirit which nos been manifested throughout
tho towns of tho State, there is every reason to
oxpoot that tho people aro bound to-day to se
cure good and honest men to manage local af
fairs, regardless of any party considerations. If
this is done, tho inevitable result in tbo future
will bo a better, moro honest, and more compe
tent management of Stato affairs. But for tho
unreasonable and useless manner in which tho
elections are spread over tho month of April in
tho incorporated villages of this State, like Hyde
Park, for instance, they would be made still moro
decisive than they can bo now. At present,
School Directors aro elected on tho 4th of April,
township officers on tbo 7th, School Trustees on
the 11th, and corporation officers on tho 21st.
A concentration of thoso elections on ono day
would produce a concentration of interest,
which woald.be beneficial and would bo far pref
erable to the present cumbersome mode.
THE SIOB7 OF A POSXAL-OAEB.
A prominent merchant in St. Joseph, Mo., J.
B. Johnson, Esq., haa got himself into trouble,
the Postmaster of St. Joseph into trouble, the
Postmaster of Chicago into trouble, and the
Government of the United States into trouble,
all growing out of a bit of pasteboard with somo
writing on it. Somo weeks ago.’Mr, Johnson,
having occasion to order goods from Chicago,
posted a label about the size of a postage-stamp
bearing his business address on the postal-cord*
The Chicago correspondent received the card in
duo tune, but bad to pay 0 cents extra postage,
and so notified Mr. Johnson. As the latter had
boon in tho habit of posting those labels for some
time and had never before boon called upon for
extra postage, ho consulted tho Postmaster of
St. Joseph, Mr. Arnholt, about it. Tho latter
authority informed him that ho had a right to
label ibo cords and coaid continue to do'so with
safely, unless tho cards wore going to Chicago,
whoso Postmaster didn’t understand tho law.
Thereupon, m a happy frame of mind, Mr.
Johnson addressed'a card to tho Chicago house
in his best bandwriting, and with a fool
ing of exultation triumphantly and in a
bold hand wroto these words: “Our Post*
maatastor says your Postmaster Is -on
ass.” The Chicago Postmaster forwarded
tho 'obnoxious postal-cord to Washing
ton. ■ Mr. Oroßwell pat on his spectacles and
road the St. Joseph Postmaster’s pithy opinion
of tho Chicago Postmaster. Tho result of tho
reading was a postal-card from Mr. Oreswell to
tho St. Joseph Postmaster which nearly lifted
tho latter functionary out of his boots, and made
him realize, os ho had never done before,
how frail tho tenure of a Post-Office
may he. Thereupon tho Postmaster call
ed upon Mr. Johnson, and informed
him that ho hod novor said tho Postmaster of
Chicago was an ass. Mr. Johnson brushed up
his memory, and, after & while, concluded that
ho was mistaken in tho language used, and gavo
his Postmaster a statement to that offoct. This
relieved tho Postmaster, lie forwarded tho
statement to Mr. Oreswell, and once more felt
secure in his office. But.it did not end hero, for
on ■ Thursday last an order came for
tho arrest of Mr. Johnson for using
scurrilous language on a postal-card, and that
night ho was arrested. Thus, for tho sake of a
little business label about the size of a postage
stamp, tbo Bt. Joseph merchant got into a diffi
culty with tho St. Joseph Postmaster aud tho
Chicago Postmaster, got tho Bt. Joseph Post
master aud the Chicago Postmaster by tho ears,
got tbo St. Joseph Postmaster into trouble with
tho Government, and haa got himself into a tight
place, in which ho may have to pay from SIOO to
SI,OOO, or go to jail and stay from one year to
ten years, before bo can extricate himself. Ho
has written a card to the St. Joseph Gazelle, in
which be says: .
'When SUakipear* mad* tbo illustrious Dogberry

most Identically tho same definition, In such a sense
Uls used hy tho heat Hnglinh writers. BuoU is tho

now bohoovoa him to show or pay tho penalty.
Meanwhile, lot us all bo tbankfulthat tho Gov

COLD WATER AT SOUTH BEND.
Tho temperance question has mode such
frightful havoc in Northern Indiana that tho
usually quiet little town of South Bond, hereto
fore celebrated for Colfax and wagon-manufao
torlos, has got Into a fight, not as between water
and whisky, but on tho relative systems of sup
plying water to tbo town. A year ago, tho stand
pipe system was adopted, since which time tho
stand-pipe pooplo and Holly-system pooplo have
boon at odds os bitterly as wore Montague and
Capulot. Last Saturday night, it got into tho
TtonnhUnan flnnvonUrm Tim Rfnn^.r<r AM
had one candidate for Mayor, and tho Hollyitos
another. Tutt was the Stand-pipe candidate and
Miller tho Hollyito. Tho Stand-pipes made such
a clamor tbat,»in order not to embarrass tho Ad
ministration at Washington, tho Holly candidate
withdrew his name, and tho Stand-pipe man
was nominated. Before tho Convention was
over, tbo Staud-pipo man found that there was
so much dissatisfaction with him that ho now
talks of giving back his nomination to the peo
ple for tho sake of harmony. If ho docs not
givoitup,the Holly pooplo talk of bolting the
nomination and putting another man on the
track. Betwixt tho two, tho people of South
Bond aro in a mournful plight, and may yot
have to glvo up both stand-pipes and Holly sys
tem, and go without water at all, in order to
havo peace, in which event tho labors of tho
crusaders will como to naught. Tho only melan
choly outcome of all this pother is tho disrup
tion of tho BopubUcan party in South Bond,
which goos to show that cold water may he put
to uses of momentous importance.
JENKINS WANTED.
That branch of tho Jenkins family which lives
in Washington la at present sorely distressed
over a point of etiquette. Tho Snpromo Court
having a new Chief-Justice, tho now Chief-Jus
tice has to bo recognized socially and.called
upon, and as to tho manner of calling, there’s
tho rub I It has never boon absolutely settled
whether tho Ohiof-Justlcc should call upou tho
Vlco-Prosldont and Speaker of tho Housoi first,
or whether tho Vico-President should call first,
or whether tho Speaker of tbo Houso should call
first, or whether tho Chief-Justice should call
upon tho Speaker before tho Yico-Presidont/or
upon tho Vico-President before the Speaker. Id
fact, tho social customs touching this
highly important duty aro all topsy
turvy, and tlio Jenkinses, as' well as
tho parties concerned, are in. a condition
of mind which is at odoo pitiable and pathetic.
Chief-Justice Waito don’t know whether to wait
or to go, and Messrs. Wilson and Blalno don’t
know whether to go or to wait, and, aa Iho forces
of attraction and repulsion aro equal, every one
is waiting and no one is going. To odd to the
complication and mournful uncertainty, Senators
and Representatives are also getting muddled
over tho question whether those of long stand
ing should call before thoso of short standing,
or nice rersa. This is ’ard, and, added to tho un
certainties of an inflated ourrbnoy.whioh aro har
assing both Houses, the dyspeptic and crabbed
disposition of the President, as manifested in
his recent interview with tho South Carolina
delegation, and tho clamor of tho New York
JSferakZ for blood,- tho condition of the country
looks distressing enough. ’
There are avenues of escape, however, from
this sad predicament. Some time ago, the wives
of tho Judicial, Legislative,; and Executive
branches of the Government got into a similar
muddlo, from which thoy ,wero handsomely
saved by Mrs. Bahlgren, who wrote a work on
official feminine etiquette, and this has become
authoritative in matters of otiquelto as Hoylo
is on wbiefc and Gunter bn surveying. This
book, however, only regulates tho ladies. Now
let somo one who Is posted on etiquette—John
B. IUOO or Gov. Oglesby, for instance—
publish a work on inis point, which
should regulate tho men. If this can
not ho done, make a teat case and
bring it before tbo Supreme Court and get a de
cision from tbo Chief-Justice himself. If a cose
cannot bo mado up in this manner,,leave it out
to arbitration,—for instance to tho new King of
tho Sandwloh Islands, tbo recently captured
King Coffee of Ashantoe, and tho Mikado of
Japan, all of whom aro tremendous sticklers for
etiquette, and abide their decision. Whatever is
done, wo trust tho important questions of legisla
tion now pending will not be allowed to languish.
Tho burdens of tho pooplo are already very
heavy. • •
A singular contested-will case is now on bear
ing in Now York, involving a property of $700,-
000. Frederick Rollwngon, a German, died in
October, leaving several sons and grandchildren
by two wives. 'Two years ago, as claimed by one.
Lena Hermann, formerly his housekeeper, bo
was married to bar, and, just before bis death,
osocutod a will leaving to her and her child all
bis immense property. It is claimed by the rel
atives of tho deceased millionaire Jhattbis mar
riage, if it over occurred, took place',while bo
was in an unsound mental condition; that at the
time bo is stated to bavo signed tbo will bo was
paralyzed, unable to move bis limbs, and dumb
—claims wbiob are substantiated by medical
testimony on tbo one side, and denied by tbo
witnesses on tbo other. Immediately after tho
death of RoUwapon, tho woman who claims to
bo bis wifo gavo out that she was about
to become a mother, and subsequent
ly, it Is sold,' fulfilled her promise.
Tbo death-hod scono at Rollwegon's decease,
if tho statements of counsel aro to bo rolled up
on, was such as Is sometimes represented upon
tbo stage, but seldom onaotod in real life. Tbo
sous of tbo dying man wore kept in ignorance of
biu death until summoned to tho funeral, while
tho chamber was thronged with hungry relatives
of tho woman who claims tbo property. Tbo
whole affair roods more like one of tbo sensa
tional dramas of modorn times than anything
else. Tbo onofmous property for wbiob tbo par
ties aro contending, tho shrewdness of the con
spirators, if snob they are, and tbo illiteracy of
the millionaire himself, give the case no little
interest.
Tbo Rhode Island Legislature is in a quandary.
It wants to protect tbo purchasers of so-oallod
dairy butter from being Imposed upon with but
ter made by acbemioal process from (be suet of
boof, and finds natural laws opposed to legisla
tion. Dairy butter Is made from tho suet of
tho cow Just as artificial butter la mado, tbo only
difference being that tbo one ia a natural, while
tbo other (g an artificial, process. Both com
pounds are, strictly speaking, butter. To call
the latter "olco-margaii«o" in contradistinction
to tho fanner Is nonsense, for dairy-made butter
is " 0100-margarlno.” There can bo no doubt
that artificial butter, prepared from the best
quality of suet, is far more wholesome than tbo
poor quality of dairy butter which is abundantly
sold. There must remain prejudices against tho
one which all tho rankness of tho other will
never counterbalance, Buoh a prejudice ia quite
intelligible. It would sink into insignificance,
however, If tho "excellent quality of butter
chemically made from Thames mud" wore
brought into competition with " 0100-margariae.”
Lavina, oily editor of tho Vickshurger of
Vicksburg, politely killed Calkin, a gentleman
who took offense at a paragraph in tho journal
ises department, as represented to tho world
some days ago. Lavina ia proud of hia feat.
Ho evidently regards tho dead Oulltln as a foo
man worthy of hia stool. Ho loads Oulkin dead,
with ns heavy compliments as ho loaded Oulkin
living with bullets. " Tho attaok was mado by a
brave man,” writes Lavina, In an oostaoy of mag
nanimity. 11 Ho was game to tbo Inst,'* ho odds,
his imagination soaring high, "and died tbo
death of a bravo, fearless man, evidently deter
mined to give or receive a fatal stroke." This is
Lavius’ idea of a bravo, fearless man. Consid
ering tbo faot that such bravery and fearless
ness are likely to bo avenged by tho friends of
tho bravo and fearless, wo can appreciate tbo
I'.H.i'b -f 4U* j>r*f*r, “ Moj UItJU Bit/ Of lilm
that they forgot tho manner of his
taking off ” (being a delicate apology for tbo
writer's bumble share in that unpleasant piece
of business) " in tbo remembrance of a bravery
and pluolc that preferred death to failure.”
Considering the awkwardness of a second moot
ing of tho "bravo and fearless” with tbo elo
quent and magnanimous person who took, him
off, wo heartily coincide with tho final prayer t
"May ho rest in peace In the green sod until tbo
last trump shall announce the final catastrophe
of nature.” Cunning follow, Lavius. The
moral ho has so clovorlyconvoyod is this: Gen
tlemen of Vicksburg, when you fight’with an
editor, allow him to kill you in preference to
taking, him off. Observe the tender and elo
quent "sond-oft” this wretched Oulkin has se
cured by shrewdly following this policy.
Tho correspondents of tho American and En
glish papers who accompanied the Ashantoo ex
pedition, and notably tho representatives of tho
London * Telegraph and Now York Herald, havo
vividly described the cemetery of Ooomassie
Into which tho headless bodies of tho human
sacrifices, made annually at the Ashantoo Capi
tal, wore thrown. The Ashantoo Golgotha is sit
uated near tho city, and tho fostering remains
poison tho air around tho glon in which they lie
for miles around. It is estimated that, since tho
city was founded, 120,0(10 human beings have
been sacrificed to tho hideous rites of this bar
barous race, and their bodies thrown upon tho
open plain to rot and breed disease. Such is one
of tho customs of tho pooplo against whom tho
wrath of Groat Britain was directed.

ensuing year. Tho result Is given below. .
cnnißT cnußon.
In accordance with tho call of Bishop White
house, of the Biocoso of Illinois, tho meeting of
the parish of Christ Ohnroh (Protestant Episco
pal), took place yesterday morning at tho liouse
of Mr. ZjcuunrU nudges, No. 780 Michigan av
enue, There wore present tho following named
gentlemen t Messrs. Leonard Hodges, A. Fi Boo
borgor, Allen 0. Calkins, Henry W. Fuller,
James 0. Cleveland, Dr. B. H. Bingham, Charles
H. Bussell, and H. P. Jonnlson, of tho parish;
the Bt. Bov. Henry J, WhUebonse, Bishop of
tho Diocese; Mr, O. B, Chittenden, momtior of
tho Standing Committee of thoDloooso, and Mr.
S. Corning Judd, Ohoncollor,
Tbo proceedings wore opened with prayer by
Bishop Wbitohouse, after which Mr. A. 0. Cal
kins was chosen to preside.
Mr. Calkins said that theobjociof the mooting
was to elect Wardens and Vestrymen lor Christ
Church, and to perpetuate tho legal existence of
that organization according to the law and the
canons of tho Church ,
At tho suggestion of Bishop Wbitohouso Mr.
Judd gate a brief review of the condition of the
parish at tbo present time. Ho said tbat tboro
wore a number of members and pow-h'oldora who
did not acquiesce in tho action of tho other mem
bers in transferring tho property and pulpit to
another organization. Some of those gentlemen
had acted with the parish until the General Con
vention in 1871. This hod given a quasi support
to Mr. Obouoy in his ministration after his sus
pension. These gentlemen had done so in tho
hope and expectation that Mr. Chenoy would bo
restored to his position in the church,- and tbo
Bishop badovon offered a plan by which ho could
havo boou restored. As this, 1 however, had nob
boon done, they had wholly withdrawn from any
participation in tho business apd ministrations
of the parish.
Tho congregation there remaining, had since
repudiated tho Protestant Episcopal Church and
dissolved Christ Church as it previously existed.
Tho object of this mooting was to continue tho
organization under tho old form and laws. Under
tho statute that portion of tho parish which re
mained truo to tho church os originally organ
ized, wore tho legal officers of the church, and.
In tho event of a decision by tho Court, relative
to tho property,' returning it to tho church to
which ft belonged, tho vestry elected at this
mooting would bo tbo poroosa to take charge of
it. The effect of tho mooting would bo to con
tiuno tho existence of Christ Church Protestant
Episcopal, and to retain tho control of tho tem
poralities of tho Church. In short the action
would bo to keep up tho llfo of the parish of
the Protestant, not tbo Beformod Church. Ur.
Judd road from the canons to show that Easter
Monday was the correct date for tbo election,
and it was agreed to proceed to tho election of
Vestrymen and Wardens. ,
The Chairman then asked the mooting to nomi
nate a. Secretary, and Mr. Charles H. Bussell
was chosen.
On motion of Mr. Roohorgor tho following
named gentlemen wore appointed a Committee
to nominate two Wardens and not less than three
Vestrymen: Messrs. Sooberger, H. F. Jonnl
son. and U. W. Fuller.
The Committee, after consultation, reported
as follows: .
Senior Warden— A. 0. Oallrins.
Junior U’nrden—ll. 2?, Joamson.
Vestrymen— Uoury Martin, 0. U. Bussell, and B. HJ
Bingham.
Before balloting, Mr. Galkins remarked that
there would havo boon more present to vote had
it not boon supposed that only pew-holders could
do so, but it had been ascertained that all male
communicants wore entitled to vote. There wero
many families now temporarily attending other
churches who had never dissolved their connec
tion with Christ Church. There wore over
twenty snob families attending Trinity Church
who would oomo back whoa the church was re
established.
The veto was then taken, seven ballots being
cast, and tho ticket as nominated was declared
unanimously oleotod.
Oil tho suggestion of Bishop Whitohouso, Mr.
Seoborgor was elected Secretary and Mr. Hodges
Treasurer of tho Parish.
Mr. Seoborgor then offered tho following reso
lution, welch was first written by Mr. Jnud and
approved by Bishop Whitohouso before being
roads • -
■ Resolved, That tho members of this meeting, now
present, do hereby declare their unqualified adherence

members of tho parish of Christ Church, Chicago,
duly convened, who so adhere to such doctrine, dis
cipline, rules, and government, and are communicants
or pow-bolders of said parish.
• The resolution was adopted.
On motion of Mr. Cleveland tho following
resolution was adopted:

tion of Christ Church, Chicago, adjourns, it adjourn
