Pmumicxr Grant Joft Washington for
St Louis on yotterday. I.tcut. Fred
Orant will boar him company, and go on
to California with a ton of Senator Colo.
"We publUh to-Jay the bill presented In
tie home of representatives last weok by
the ipeclal railroad committed of thirteen.
The bill wai made tbo special ordor for
Laura Ream In tbs Cincinnati 'Com
toercial ' affirms that Proliant Orant
regularly imports beef and South Down
mutton from England for hli table, and
that both the president and Mrs. Grant
re getting stout, while tho former
has a decidedly rubicund lingo to bis
Ruuoas of an outbreak between tho
white and colored inhabitant! of the
town of Colfax, in Louisiana, havo been
rife for soma dtrs. A lew days ago, tho
blacks had posiesslon of tho town and tho
whites had flod, there bolng not a whito
person within twenty miles of the place.
Yesterday morning, the telegraph re.
ported the re-taking of tbo town by tho
whites, the details of the affair showing u
terrible determination on the part of the
white citizens. Tbo immediate cause of
the war of races is not given. At Inst ac
counts, the town was quiet.
There is a time honored adage which
counsels people who havo any specially
desired end in view to "strike when the
iron it hot." Tbo waiter girls of a
Chicago hotel did bettor than that the
other day they struck when the dinner
was hot and left their landlord with a
large number of hungry guefts on hi
hands and compelled to press into tbo
nice service of administering to their
wants an untrained forco of laundry
women, porters, etc. Tho waiter girls
wero true to tbclr feminine Instincts in
choosing the most aggravating ttinu in
which to strike.
Alas and alack t Tho supremo court of
the state of Illinois hut decided in the
cue of Mrs. Myra Uradwoll, that It docs
not think the Fourteenth amendment
gives to women the right to practice law,
and Judge llradly of thu supreme court,
In an otaburato opinion, provod that nil
natural and divine laws, go to show that
it was never Intended that woman should
practice law, but that oli the tyranli
man I woman s sphere Is her home, and
thx violates all law by trying to aitumo
the vocations of mn, nnd forcing herself
Into public life. And Ihus the devoted
woman suffragists sutler another back-set.
To say it h sad is to be too mild. It is ui
A THOU ULr.SOMK POSSESSION.
It is Interesting to nolo the variety of
ways In nblch congressmen havo disposed
and continue to dispose of their flvu thous
and dollar back salary. Iho universal
condemnation which the monuro 1ms inc
at the bands of the press and people has
nojdoubt compelled many members to use
the money othor than was tho original
intention of the men who introduced ant
roted for the blit. Somo members have
refuted it absolutely; some liuvo bought
United States bonds and destroyed them,
thus placing tho money beyond redemp
tion In the United States treasury; some
have drawn It and oxiiondod it
for charitable purpose., anil in
oat instance, perhaps more, it has been
distributed to the treasurer, of tho conn
tie composing the congressional district
of Ue member, in proportion to their pop
ulation, That it has proved nn elephant
inlbt hands of many representatives is
certain. Those who voted continually
against the bill and have refused to claim
thtjmoney it gave them the excuse to accept,
no doubt enjoy a serenity of conscience and
ease of mind to which their more greedy
fallow inmWa are strangers. To these,
the back talary is like " Dead tea fruit,
turned to ashes on their lips."
