Pangers to American liberty. Plutocracy to day ia In a daspenia plight;. having no arjroraenta at iia coia macd it baa been compelled to stoop to ft tyranny that ita own more pnidsnt ad vocates deplore, knowing well that such p sen do remedies only aggravate the eyila of the already intolerable position. Ravolt appears on every hand, and the revolt is no losger confined to the un thinking rabble whose aristocratic states men have long eiace learned the lesson of daepisiog. Yesterday it was Senator Jones who cancelled the traditions of a lifetime, and turned his back upon the fold; to-day it is ex Senator Lyman Trumbull, a judge on the snprsme'.benoh of Illinois ten yeara b afore the war; one of President Lincoln's most treated counsellors; the man who penned the celebrated fifteenth amendment to the constitution whereby equal rights were granted to all citizens, "regardless of color or previous condition of servitude." The conduct of the federal judges in connection with the lata railroad troubles has started him out of the retirement to whioh his weight of years had well en titled him, and he thus declares him self in a Populiat speech that must ring ominously in the ears of the meat self satisfied monopolist. We quote: ''Of lata years United States judges 'have assumed jurisdiction they would not have dared to exercise in the earlier days of therepublio. They now claim the right to determine the extent of their jurisdiction and enforce such or ders as they thick proper to makp. These federal judge?, like sappers and miners, have for years silently and steadily enlarged their jurisdiction, and unless checked by legislation they will soon undermine the very pillars of the constitution and bury the liberties of the people beneath their ruins. To vest any man or set of men with authority to de termine the extent of their powers and to enforce their decrees is of the very essence of despotism. Federal judges now claim the right to take pcesesaion of and run the railroads of the country, to issue injunctions without notice, and to punish for contempt by fine and im prisonment anjone who disputes their authority." Mr. Trumbull is right; and when so sged a veteran finds him self compelled to break silence, how eagerly should we of the later genera tions unite to swell the chorus! Take another of the iepresentatives of plu tocracyGeneral Schcfield, whose re port on the condition of our army has been notioed extensively by the press at large. It goes without saying that he calls for a large increase of. the arm;; that is all in the program, and the gen eral is a military man. But he also poses as a social economist, and, as such, he has become cognizant of the fact that, from time to time,many of our citizens are out of work. He opines that they should be able to find in arms the occupation they bo sorely need, and that a large, flexible standing army, the strength of whioh should always be left to the dis cretion of the president who would pro vide jobs for the unemployed. This bold bid for the establishment of military dictatorship has staggered even the capi talistic press, which points out that the unemployed are numbered by the mil lion, and that to give the president the power cf enlistirg them would be tan tamount to putting a czar upon the throne. The idea baa been sprung too suddenly; as it grows familiar there are many quarters in which it will be cor dially welcomed. Twentieth Century, November 8. "Among the Ozark."
