There has been another scene In the
House at .Springfield, and the knowing
ones say that Speaker Haines "put lii
foot Into it" again.
On Thursday tho liquor bill was under
consideration by sections, and the llrst
section hail been read by the clerk. Mr.
Moore, of Marshall, moved to strike out
tho enacting words. The Speaker ruled
that the motion was out of order. Mr.
Conkrlle read rule U, that "a motion to
strike out the enacting words of a bill
shall have precedence of a motion to
amend, and, if carried, shall bo consid
ered equivalent to Its rejection."
Then a great confusion aroe,and final
ly the Speaker backed down from his rul
ing, and a vote was taken on tho motion
of .Mr. Moore, of Marshall, which was
carried by a vote of 7"j ayes to 02 nays.
The bill thus killed by the striking out
of tho enacting words, should have been
adopted. It modllles the present liquor
law in several oi it, features; but It is
lead for the present. And so. peace to
its manes.

Under the old constitution of this State,

the construction of railroads, gave to
railroad companies bonds to the amount
of many dollar, thu only consideration

wealth as tho result ol railroad building
Mas dissipated by It. and the people
found themselves burdened by debts
These debts necessitate the ii.ivnii'iit of
heavy taxes, ami threaten general oarik
ruptcv when "pay day" comes. In view
of these Tacts what shall we do?
The local debts In Illinois are say SH"',
OOO.tXIO at an average interest of 8 per
centum $2,b00.000 a year. Pund this in
State bonds at per cent, per annum,
and Sl,0.')0,00l) would be saved each year.
Tho holders of tho local bonds would
rather have the State bonds at A per cent.
than the local bonds at 8. Hut even If
tho Interest on tho proposed funded in
debtedness were llxed at 0 or 7 or even Sper
cent., It would ho belter for all parties to
have the debt assumed by the State than
to have It resting like an Incubii- on the
counties, cities and tow ns. To provide
for the Interest on the fmuled indebted
ness and a sinking fund to pay It at ma
turity, a tax might ho levied upon the
gross earning of the railroad of the
State. It may be said, the railroad
companies would not consent to
this ; but we believe that If they are re
leased from all local taxation they would
not hesitate to do so. They pay now
more as local taxation than they would
:ive to pay upon their gross earnings: to
atl-iy the Interest on the lliuded local. In
debtedness and to crcato a sinking fund
lor Its liquidation; and besides, they
would Iw relleml ot the constant annoy
ance they arc now subjected to by tho ef
fort the people are constantly making to
;ct out of them the last penny.
This st'hunie.lf carried iutoellect. would
start Illinois forward upon anew career
of prosperity by lining from the localities
the heavy debts urder which they are
now staggering; it would not Increase
the Slate taxes, Mikmi thu railroad com
panies would pay the interest ami princi
pal of tho funded debt; H would Imj a
llwMng to Uhi railruaa- companies bv
taking them out of the bauds of the local
assessors; and It would he aecentiiblo to
llio holders of tho bonds of tho localities,
since it would give to thein bonds worth
their face and an investment as good as
any in the world.
We have stated tho scheme brleily. It
can be sustained by arguments irresisti

Aln. Ktmon: Tim nrtldo by some
one, over the signature oi "nun." in
Wednesday!" Sun, attempting a criticism
of tho sketch of Mary Washington, puli-
llshed In your lust Sunday's lsue, car
ried .villi it Its own condei ' and
would not be entitled to any considera
tion If the writer had not made so many
misstatements ol facts, well known to
every Intelligent reader of the history of
this cotintrv. The lirnoraneo and bias
of "Hurt'' Is well shown hi this sentence:
"Sim overdoes her work, and hunts or
dxes up. a cac to suit her side."' Klxes
un Indeed! Any onu familiar witli our
history, will recogni.o in my articlo
plain and very eovlo"l statement ol well
auth'Mitkvited facls.
"Hurt" says Mary Hall win surround
ed with wealth and hail slaves, while
Augustine Washington was of the decayed
aristocracy, and was sensible In securing
Mary for a helpmeet. The truth I", that
but little Is known of Mrs. Washington's
tainlly. other than that her lather was a
mauler, ami that (lie Halls, like the
Washington, belonged to the nobility
and that thev too came to America in
search ofgivaler political liberty, and se
ciirlty of life and property than could be
round hi Eushiml during the turbulent
days of Charles I. and the Protectorate
think history fails to record
that Mary Hall had wealth or
ives, and the natural Inference
Is to the contrary. Whereas Spark says
Augustine Washington, at his death, "on
Ihcl'Jth ol April, 17i:t, at the ago ot
forty nine, ' possessed a large
ind valuable property In land. &c and
as tins nan iiccn acquired cuicny oy ins
own industry and enterprise, It may be
Inferred that in the concerns of business
he wa methodical, skillful, honorable anil
energetic; each of ids children
Inherited from him a separate plantation.
It is thus seen, that Aimustluc
Washington, although suddenly cut off
hi tho vigor of manhood, left all his chil
dren in a state of comparative independ
ence. Conlldlngln the prudence oi tnc
mother, lie directed that the proceeds of
all the property of her children be at her
disposal till they should respectively omo
of age."
"Hurt" Is tho only historian (?) who
ha recorded that Mrs. Washington was
the haughty old loyalist who did not
svmnathizo witli the Kcvolutiou until It
became a success."
Mrs. Washington was unquestionably
surrounded w-ith an atmosphere of lib
erty, for we read that when tho "Stamp
Act" was passed hi Parliament, the llrst
outburst of indignation hi America was
by IMttick Henry, in the Virginia House

ton wa ami continued to lie, a member
during all the year of war legislation
preceding thu Revolution. It Is well
known that Washington had the highest
regard for tho opinions of his mother,
and that he always acted In harmony
with her.
He wa a delegate from Virginia to the
Colonial Assembly, which met hi Now
Vork hi October, I'OS.cilled tlio "Mas-a-cliusctts
Assembly." Ami again lie was
a delegate to the l'irt Continental Con
gress, which was convened at Philadel
phia, September, 1771, on which occasion
that enthusiastic ami eloquent patriot,
Patrick Henry, said of Washington, "that
for solid Information ami sound Judg
ment he wa unquestionably the greatest
man on the floor."
He was also in the second Continental
Congress, which met hi 1770. This body,
after a month spent in deliberation, voted
to ral-e an army of twenty thousand
men, and by a unanimous voice elected
Washington "Coininauder-ln-Chlcf of all
forces r.ii-cd, or to bo raised, lu defence
of American Liberties."
Ho accepted till responsibility, (which
hi the event of failure would cause the
loss of property ami life), upon the con
dition that he would receive no compen
sation for ills services, but that his actual
expenses should be paid. Will "Hurt"
Inform us at what date the Revolution
became a. sticccs was It prior, or subse
quent to the bold stand taken hy the sou
of Mary Washington? Would so Intel
ligent and zealous a body of men, as com
posed ibis Congress, have selected for
Commander of the army which was to
Inaugurate thu battles ot the American
Revolution, a loyalist, or tlio son of a loy
alist ?
lll.tory (not "Hurt's") says that
Mrs. Washington, during the war. would
not buy supplies' from Kngland,
and that he even wore lioino-spun dresses.
It also Mute that she contributed during
tho war to the support of the poorarouml

soldiers. Would ti woman of her charac
ter who had no sympathy with thu war,

particularly dlsplrascd with tlio Isolation
In which sins Ihed. How thlseould have
boon avoided In a country where neigh
bors are few and far between, is not clear
to my mind. "Hurt's" assertion that
such a woman as Mary Washington
"would exert no liilluencu for trood in
these days," is a most unjust aspersion on
the character of the women of our day, a
large majority of whom are not siilllcl'ent
