TUESDAY, MAY 81, 1881.
EDITORIAL NOTES. The oigan of Mayor Boa! pats that.gentle man on the back, and tries to give lmn new courage anil more backbone. How ver Dr. lieal may s«e fit to act, all true Democrats are ashamed of and condemn his action in appoint* ing his son-in-law to the assessorship as a "recognition of the Republican party". As for his other reason, that of making the ap pointment to be courteous to the Republican council, it no longer exists since they have re jected Mr. Bateman. If Dr. Beal is a Dem ocrat, lie will send in the name of some good man belonging to the party chat elected him mayor of Butte, and in that way put. himself right, whh ins constituents. TheSVhittaiieii.courtniarfi.fi is still drag, ging its slow length along. It has been es timated that these unfortunate slits in the cadet's ears have cost the government over 8100,000, and yet no testimony has been in troduced tending to implicate or establish the guilt of any party in the maiming. The twin scandal—the Morey letter—it seems, has sunk from the public notice. This is strange We have been repeatedly promised tuat ex posures would be made that would compro mise some of the first men in public Jife, but those exposures have not, thus tar, been made. Kenward Pliilp who was, for some time, the central ligure in the scandal lias not yet. been brought to trial. On the contrary the district attorney having charge of his prosecution has entered or offered to enter a nolle pros, in his case, but the stubborn little Englishman will not submit to this disposition ot the charge resting against him and demands a legal in vestigation of it. Is the last dollar of the na tional republican campaign fund and that given by Abram Hewitt and oilier prominent democrats exhausted that search for the for gers has ceased ? If not why isn't the "ras cal hunted down." ■The arrest of Herr Jonas, foimeriy editor of the Voilas Zeitung, published in New York, iu Gemfany ou suspicion of being a worker in tlie interest of the Socialists, is creating much excitement among the Hermans in the former place, Mr. S. E. Shevitoh, the pres ent editor of that paper, who is a Russian refugee of a good family, was recently inter viewed by a truth reporter, when lie gave ut terance to the following :—"Mr. Jonas," he said witn much warmth, "went to Europe to benefit his health alone. He bad passed the winter in Italy, and was traveling through Germany on his way back to New York, when the Saxon police pounced upon him, robbed him ot his private papers and kept him in prison nine days. Mr. Jonas was an Ameri can citizen, mind you, and as I said in my paper tills morning, if the United States does not wish to lessen itself in the eyes of the world, it is high fme that it should take measures to prevent its citizens from being molested by those bandits of German officials. We mean to hold a great indignation mass meeting in this city, and will call upon the American Government to make the matter an international one between America and Ger many.'' DORSEY. Ex-Senator Dorsey, the valued secretary of the national republican committee, is prolific of brilliant achievements. His manipula tions of S.ar Route contracts are masterpeices in their line. Thus far be has successfully checkmated Postmaster-General Jan.es in his endeavors to gather any wry damaging testi mony against him. As an evidence of the in ventive genius oi t he man we have only to re fer to the matter of his sending lot of bonds to an Ark. postmaster to be approved in blank and then having them forwarded to himse.il at Washington to be tilled out. After the ex posure of his frauds was made, this post master was induced to believe that a trip to Europe would be beneficial to his health. Dorsey and his friends furnished him with the money to make the tour. As soon as lie was well on his way, Dorsey, et. ai., to length en his wanderings gave .birth to the report that the postmaster was a defaulter. His management of the Denver case is an other evidence of the man's superior qualifi - cations for the position which lie holds in the republican councils. The following from the Denver Tribune of a recent date, shows how' the ex-senator and trusted republican secretary do< 3 his ,work : "Immediately af ter the exposure of Dorsey's complicity in the Star-route ring frauds, as telegraphed over the country, attempts were begun to quash a suit which had brought out certain letters and to obtain possession of the docu ments. Yesterday these efforts were suc cessful The letters were surrendered and Dorsey paid to Wilcox the money for which the suit was to be brought. The money, as iar known, is for Wilcox's work in securing petitions to have routes expedited and sub letting to smaller contractors. The same day on which the papers wero surrendered, Post master-General James telegraphed here foi the letters or for certified copies or photo graphs of them. The telegram came after the papers had bee,, surrendered, and parties interested probably concluded they were safe; but the y ere miste ken. There are cer tified copies.in exister.''« and they will be ■used in connection with other documents in Portland, Oregon." Notwithstanding his skillful planning James Is in a fair way to beat "him in his game. He is gathering little by little, the points that will In time, it permitted to bo placed before the Country, put Mr. Dorsey in a position where he will not, for some time, be able to dispeuse the generous corruption funds which he hac for some time been handling in the interests of the republican party. Mr. James has the hearty wishes of the American people in the successful prqpecution of »he good work which he has begun. Tlie Monetary Conference at Paris lias now been in session over a month and from last advices has not yet reached any definite conclusions. Nearly every member of tlie j conference has made a speech and the subject of b! metallism has been reviewed from every standpoint including tiiat of tlie national and international. France and the United States are solid on the question; Italy appears to hang fire; Germany is wedded to her thalers and England throws cold water upon the meeting. While nearly every nation represented at tlie conference recognizes the importance of ar riving at some agreement by which the value of silver may be made uniform throughout the civilized world, each delegate appears to approach the subject with preconceived no tions regarding it, not at all in harmony with those entertained by others. , The following taken from late dispatches shows that the conference proposes to proceed with great caution and is not disposed to be hasty in arriving at conclusions. It proposes to remain in session during tne coming sum mer. "At the Monetary Conference most'of tne delegates who had already spoken replied o arguments adduced by subsequent speeches against views propounded by them. Ecarts and Dodge recapitulated their arguments iu ftvo"of bi-metallism and with tlioir speeches the general session closed. * The following order of tlie day was adopt ed. After having heard general discussions and , examined the Monetary situation from an international point of view, and having re gard to declarations made in the name of certain governments and in consideration of the fact that several delegates desire tempora ry suspension of sittings iu order to refer to their governments the Conference de cideil to adjourn until June 80th. The Conference was intensely interested in a very able speech by Judge Howe who out lined the American position on the question of bi metallism in the United States. He said we are not here in behalf of mine owners to bull the market for silver. Agricultioal is our chief interest. Our annual cotton crop is worth seven times, our wheat crop twelve times, and our corn crop eighteen times the average annual product of our silver mines. America is seeking for herself and the world a broad and stable money basis upon which thirty thousand millions of the world's in debtedness can rest. Judge Howe predicted that tliis Conference would free the Union on equal terms or nothing. The Government of the United Slates offers to stand side by side with its sisters represented here in upholding the monetary functions of both gold and sil lACKBONE. Under tlie above caption the Inter Moun tain of the 23d inst. gives'the result of an in terview that its reporter had with Mayor Real in regard to the city appointments. The sub stance of the interview, tlie Mayor admits to a Miner reporter, is correctly stated by our evening contemporary. This being the case the position taken by Dr. Beal in reference to ins appointments becomes a matter of which Democrats are compelled to lake no tice. It is well known that the Republican organ iu tins city first mooted the question of making a party iiglit at tlie late city election, and insisted that as the city w as Republican the brotherly-love doctrine of dividing the of ficers should be ignored, and a square contest should be made between the parties for polit cal supreinac y. The democrats accepted the gage of battle and took the initiative in presenting to the vot ers of Butte a ticket composed of solid dem ocrats with the name of Dr. Beal at its head as candidate for mayor. The iiglit, was hot ly contested by democrats and Dr. Beal was tri umphantly eiected. His election was con ceded to be a democratic victory, gained by the labors of active, earnest democrats against an enemy who used every effort to defeat him. But it appears they have been Mahoned; or in oilier words the mayor has "zone back on liis party." While lie admits he was elected by the democrats, he saysas mayor lie will" know no politics." Right here upon this point tlie democrats will join issue with tlie mayor. All fair minded men must concede that if Dr. Ileal intended to "know no politics" as may or of the city lie should have so staled before the convention that nominated him. Simple justice to the democracy of Butte demanded this expression from him. Democrats would then have known whom to support and would have probably left the doctor in private life where he would not have been "persecuted bv letters and personal applications" tor office. As the Mayor has chosen a Republican 'or gan for his mouth-piece will he or his organ please answer the following questions which an inquiring public is now asking : Did Dr. Beal before the election pledge himself, that if elected, he would not nominate either Lou P. Smith, Mr. Dickinson or Mr War field City Marshal ? Did or did not Dr. Beal say before the election that it he was the next Mayor he would nominate one of the above named gentleman as Marshal ? Did or did not Dr. Beat say that he did not expect to be elected, for it was weil known that if he was elected lie would nominate another one of the above-named gentlemen as Marshal, and that that knowledge would Mc fuit him ? These are fair questions. Will the Doctor please give a direct answer to them? The public awaits his answer. Since the Pennsylvania legislature lias taken the initiatory steps to brin g the remains of William Penn from Ei gland to the state be founded, parties in New York City have suggested that the remains of John Howard Payne, the author of "Home, Sweet Horn 1 ," be takeu from their present resting place iu the cemetery at Tunis and be buried m the form er city. It should be done. "Home, Sweet Home" is sung at the hearthstone of every American home. The mortal remains of the author of the treasured words should lie be neath the soil of his native land. The extra session of the United Slates Senate that was convened shortly after Presi dent Garfield's inauguration, and that ad journed sine die' only a few days asm. will pass into history as one of the most extraor dinary ones that has taken place since the formation of the Republic. As is well known, it was called for the purpose of con firming tbe nominations of certain parties lo positions within the gift of the Execu live, and to ratify tlie treaties made with China, Japan and other foreign powers. The demo cratic senators were willing to proceed with the legitimate objects of tlie session and ad journ. A few days only would bave sufficed to compass those ends. But the republican senators, unfortunately for themselves and thejr party, conceived tlie idea of not only reorganizing the committees of tlie senate, thus placing the chairmanships and a major ity of each committee in the bands of-their own members, but of electing republican of ficers for that body. To obtain the power to enable them to carry out the above named objects, they entered into an arrangement With Mabone, of unsavory memory, by which the Virginia readjuster, or, more properly speaking, repudiator, was to give them his vote in consideration of their supporting liis friend liiddleberger, a brother .repudiator, for sergeant-at-arms. To this too bare-faced bargain the democratic senators, to use a homely but expressive phrase, "kicked." Then ensued the late çver memorable dead lock out of which lias sprung tiie discord in the ranks of the republican party that will disrupt it beyond the hope of permanent re conciliation. Mahone's entry into the republican party and the endorsement of liis nominee—Rid dleberger—by tlie "Ilalfbreed" administra tion have inimeasureabiy weakened the ties that bound the better class of republicans ti^ its support. The arguments of its Edmunds, the reasonings of its Hoars, the sophistry of its Dawes cannot uproot from tlm minds of the people tlie belief that a disgraceful and* unrighteous bargain was entered into be tween the leaders of the party and a rene gade democrat that compromises and humil iates republicans in tbe eyes of the world. Their faith in the purity of their party lead ers is destroyed. Following this unholy compact, and indirectly proceeding from it, or at least as an outgrowth of the spirit of corruption that prompted it, comes tlie résig nation of Senators Conkling and Piatt. This act of tlie great leader of the stalwarts crys tallizes that element of the republican party into a distinct faction of irreconcilables. They constitute the "Old Guard" of tlie party, without which it has not for years wop. nor cannot in the future win a political vic tory over tlie democratic hosts. Unless the operations of the Darwinian theory of the "survival of the fittest" be reversed, it will never be merged into and be swallowed up by tlie ''Half breeds," but will stand with its chief, and with him survive or perish. The entry of Mahons into the republican rauks during the extra session ; tlie withdrawal of Conkling ami Platt from its deliberations, and the inevitable division oi the once united and powerful party as the result of these two events, will distinguish the session ,<s one iu which the republican party received its death blow. REVISION OF THE BIBLE. In its issue of the 26th inst. the Mimui gave its readers a selection of the leading pas sages in the Bible which have been revised. The mode of working pursued by the par ties engaged in the great work is thus given by tlie New York World, to which journal we are indebted for our copy : "The revision of the King James translation of the Bible into English began with resolutions of the convocation of Canterbury at n session held on May 5, 1870. They were to the effect that it was desirable that a revision of the author ized version of holy Scripture should be un dertaken ; that no changes should be made but such as faithfulness required; that the style of the language of the existing version should lie closely followed, and t.ha', the co opération of scholars of other nations and other religious bodies should be invited. A committee of eight bishops and eight presby ters was appointed to cany out these resolu tions, of whom three bishops (Winchester Gloucester and Bristol, and .Salisbury), to gether with the prolocutor of the lower house, now dean of Lichfield, the late dean of Canterbury (Dr. Alford), the dean of Westminster am| Canon Blakesley (now dean of Lincoln) formed the original New Testa ment company. At tbe first meeting of tlie united committee twenty-one scholars were elected as members of the New Testament company. Tlie same year companies were formed in America to cooperate with the English companies. The mode of working between the two com panies was as follows : The English company first revised the Greek text and the transla tion, examining together every verse and every word. This was done at tlie rate of about forty verses a day, aud it took six years to complete the first revision. As each portion was completed copies were sent to tbe Amer ican company, who, iu due course, sent back their criticisms and suggestions. These were carefully considered during tbe second re vision, which occupied tw . years and a ijalf. As the various portions of the second revision were completed they were rant to America, and the Americans sent back further criti cisms and suggestions, which were iu turn carefully considered. At last the revised version w as sent over to America iu its final form, and the Americans sent back in return a list of passages iu which they record their preferences for other renderings thau those adopted by the English company. These will he found at the end of the large edition of tbe New Testament to be issued by tbe uni versity presses." The first successful method of vulcanizing India rubber was patented in 1839. . From tlie following, recently cabled to tbe New York World by its London correspond ent, it would appear that England is becom ing alarmed at tlie new French, tariff and threatens retaliatory measures: "When Rich ard Cobden was appointed Plenipotentiary to negotiate a treaty of commerce with France in 1800, it was prophesied by English states men, and particularly by those who had fought with Cobden and Bright in the strug gle against tlie Corn Laws, tlia' the free-trade millennium was at hand. .Twenty years have passed and France not only remains uncon verted, but cleaves to her idols with a stub bornness that almost makes Manchester de spair. The proposed alterations in the French tariff' have created something like consterna' Ion in the commercial and manu facturing centres. The new system, if put iulo operation, will have the effect of shut ting out many of the most important descrip tions of English goods; and the trouble is that, England conceded France so much in the Cobden treaty that she has nothing left for use as a lever to compel the republie to treat her manufactures with some degree of consideration. Just now times are terribly dull in the northern towns. Americans who have travelled through Yorkshire and Lan cashire will remember that the Lancashire and Yorkshire and Midland railroads trav erse a perfect hive of industry, but tbe bum for some time past bas been ominously faint. At Leeds the woolen trade is suffering severe ly, and Bradford is even iu a worse plight. T he iron trade is also affected, the Belgian and German forges being formidable com petitors; and at Nottingham, Birmingham, Coventry and other places further south the stagnation is very marked. You can well understand, therefore, that the new French duties are regarded with alarm, more espec ially as English exports to the United States show a steady falling off in consequence of your prohibitory tariff. It has become dear to politicians of both parties, the extreme doctrinaires of course excep'ed, that unless something is done and done quickly English trade will lie seriously if not permanently injured. The advocates of a retaliatory pol icy of "reciprocity of tariffs," as it has been aptly defined, are making great headway among the manufacturers and artisans, and I know as a. matter of fact that influential poli ticians who not many years ago would have scoffed at the idea of returning to the system of protection are now talking of clap ping a duty of twenty-five per cent, on French wines and of fifty per cent, on French silks.. The correspondence between Lord Granville and M. Challemel-Laenur, French Ambassador here, relative to the com mercial irealy, is published. M. Challeinel Lacour imforms the Foreign Secretary, that lie thinks unnecessary excitement prevailed in England in regard to the changes in the French tar iff. France, he says, intends to abolish ad valorem duties, but »lie desires and intends to replace them by the direct equivalent amount in specific duties. Lord Granville replies that it will afford much sat isfaction to England to learn that France does not contemplate a departure from the status quo. M. C'haileruel-Lacour's assur ance, however, depends entirely on the nego tiations ' T a new treaty, which is doubtful. Under lie -ueral tariff not modified by treaty'll s'alus quo will certainly not he maintained. The Liberal chiefs, conscipuously Mr. Bright, have no patience with the retaliatory programme, which they .say , and with good reason, would be a practical surrender to the Protect ionists. But this heroic attitude does not commend itself to lue mechanic who is out of work, or !o liis employer, who sees les annual output continually decreasing, ami you may rest assured that if tlie French Gov ernment persists in Us present designs there will be an outcry for reprisals such as no government can withstand and live. It is noterions that tin; English silk and sugar f , les have been nuned liy France, and it. is asfmi-shing how v.*> tlie grievances of the du.- : v s: k-weaver and the Clyde refiner is um.-i eoii.l by .be working classes- One sida i free trade seems to he doomed. A standi»* 1 argument at workingmen's clubs and institutes is that Eng'aud can no more contend against rivals who are exclud'ng her goods than she couid hope to thrash them by did nulling her army and navy. An active agita* u on this question may he looked for during the summer." much better than those of either Blaine or Garfield. In view of this fact we would ad vise our inconsiderate Coukiemporary to ar tistically poise itse lf upon the top rail of the fence until it ascertains which wiil he the under dog iu tlie fight and then drop down upon him. In the present instance policy will pay better than loyalty. Can our neigh bor see it ?

Conkliug'schances of being elected to the presidency of the United States in 188-1 It is reported that when Malione heard that Conkling and Platt had resigned, he petu iently said: "Well, this places me in a devil ot a fix." And when it was htmsd to him that probably tlie Democrats would take ad vantage of the situation to reorganize the com mittees, he sorrowfully remarked Then, in tlie name of God, what is to become of me ? " Mahone has a keen sense of the Han gers ot his position. The St. Louis Globe-I)ei\incrat says: "As a party harmoniser Mr. Garfield is not a suc cess. He has thus far proved himself capa ble only as assistant h—11-raiser to Jim Siaiue. A Washington dispatch says that Garfield has made a joke which expresses Ills contempt for the hungry Republican Senators who have tome to regard him during the deadlock as the animals in a Zoo regard the keeper who feeds them. When it was proposed, and discussed in a Cabinet meeting recently that the President should follow the example of Washington and the elder Adams in going in person into the Executive session of the senate and stat ing his case, Secretary Blaine jestingly sug gested that the President get out one of liis old sermons and preach to t lie Senate on peace and harmony, or on duty of obedience to the powers that be. Garfield replied that one of the patent ser mons of Dow, Jr., would do from the text;— "The, ox knoweth his master's crib, ah !*' This remark coming to Senator Kellogg has made him madder than ever, and he says "II the senate has a »'aintned bit of spunk, it will show Blaine and Garfield that tlie threat of withholding the fodder of pa'fonage will nei ther scare, or deter senators from insisting on their rights. A Washington correspondent writing from the capital soon after Conk ring's resignation says : "Senator Coi.khng's desk and chair remain ed vacant throughout the entire session to day. it was viewed wii.u deep interest, by Senators aud spectators. Upon tne desk re pospd a small package, containing his morn ing mail and newspapers, encircled by tlie usual band of red tape. Oonkling's seat had been spoken lor before liis last re-election by Senator Hill, of Georgia, and If lie desires he can have it now, as by liis resignation, tlie incumbent's right, thereto is forfeited. It is not. likely Hill will press his claim under the circumstances, but if he should he will be entitled to the seat.." As neither Mr. Hill nor anfipther senator made any movement total;« Coukllng's seat which is considered one of the best in the senate, it clearly indicates the prevailing be lief among senators that Mr.» Conkling will occupy it when he returns to Washington. The trial of the Socialist editor, Herr Most, of tbe Freiheit, was to commence in London on tlie ,20th inst. He will be ar raigned on two indictments, the first for li belling Alexander II. and the second for in citing to the murder of the present Czar. The English law under which lie was indicted provides that., "all persons who shall con spire, confederate and agree to murder any person whether he be a subject of Her Maj esty or uat, and ivheiber he be within the Queen's dominion or not, and whosoever shall solicit, encourage or persuade any per son to such murder, shall lie guilty of a mis demeanor, punishable by two years' impris onment or three years penal servitude, at the discretion of the courts."
