THE NEW TATK
Early In February last, a resolution
waa Introduced In the Illinois itat en
at for tbe anpotnttnent of a committee
of five aenatora to Investigate the affair
of the new aUte house. Tbc resolution
wu passed, and a day or two later Sena-
f I -1.11. n
tori J one, wniunjc, namey,
and Frautz wore aelected
. .uMi enmmittpe. Alter more than
three montba spent in gathering in
formation on the subject, the committee
nn Wprinrsdav last pre-sented their
report The report la terylon, cover
Injr more than two hundred closely writ
ten pnjrcs of legal cap paper. It gives a
brlet history of the enterprise from its
commencement to the present time,
and summarizes by giving an aggre
gate of the amounts paid
out and the sum yet required to complete
the work, which is estimated at from
$500,000 to $700,009. From the report it
annears that the commissioners hav?
handled the neat little sum ot f 3,50C,0:X,
This enormous sum has been expended
and the buiiaini s nuu vut vtnuuietuu,
notwithstanding the assurances made
Kv tt rnmtnUsioners that It
would complete the structure, and
nave It read; tor occupation by the 1st of
January, 1877. Why these pledge hare
not been fulfilled la a matter ot great
concern to the committee, and the com
missioners, can give no satislactory expla
nation tor their tardiness In completing
the work. The greater portion ot the
expenses of the building over the esti
mates hare been caused, in the opin
ion of the committee, bv the excessive
and elaborate ornamentation, of
the building, and by the
many changes from the original plan.
They report the cause of the cost over
the appropriations to be the lault of the
supervising architect, who, being a man
of extravagant taste, took advantage of
the commissioners, who, not being arch
itects or practical mechanics, allowed
excesses not warranted by the limits o
the appropriation as, lor instance, the
change la the construction of the dome,
w hich change increased the cost $300,
000. Other changes arc also mentioned
of similar character for which the com
mittee do not specially blame the com
missioners. Some ot the work is com
mented on as tollows: Terra-cotta,
poor; 1'ortland cement, Inferior
quality; marquetry floors, cheap,
and so on must be replaced ; the imita-
tioa marble columns, etc., are a failure,
and will have to be replaced. The fol
lowing figures of expense arc given in
round numbers: Commissioners salary.
$44,000; secretary's salary, $13,000; at
torney'! fees, $5,000; architect's pay
$83,000. The committee recommended
action by tb state lor possession of the
necessary additional ground, free to the
state, wu ihe auuiu r. ., j .kv aUJ
further appropriation contingent on the
procurement of such ground ; suspend
the salaries ot the commissioners during
the period In which there are no funds ;
appropriate $15,000 for the protection of
those parts of Uie building now exposed,
and the immediate dismissal of J. C.
Cochrane, the architect. The report
shows that the commissioners have not
exercised due precaution in the man
agement ot tho construction of the
building, and to them must be laid the
blame of Its not being completed at the
time specified, and the enormous cost
over and above the original estimates.
The appolutuient of Judge King to be
collector of the port of New Orleans,
was, ;if Radical papersat the North
are to be taken as authority, only on
other act in the programme to carry out
Hayes' Southern r'cy- The Packard
tuprem" court, of which King was a
member, was a stumbling block iu
the way that had to bo
removed before the president could see
hi way clear after once having recog
nized Nicholls as governor ol Louisiana.
A correspondent ol the Cincinnati (it
tette writing from Washington s.vs :
The Packard supreme court
'has always been considered
'by the president the great
dimculty In the Louisiana cac. The
'beet lawyers here, including .Secretary
'Evarts, are of the opinion, as n abstract
proposition, that the legality and con
'stitutlonality of the Packard supreme
court, appointed by Kellogg, was be.
yond controversy." The president was
fearful that should.tbe rival courts re
main in existence until a legal issuo
could be made before the United
butes supreme court as to which was
the valid tribunal, the decision would
be in favor of the Packard court. The
president, anxious f obviate even tho
possibility of a contest before the su
premt court, decided to get the judges of
me rackiara court out oi tho way. The
supreme court of Louisiana, under the
constitution ol tho state should be
composed ot five members, but
Kellogg, during whose term as governor
the supreme court was reorganized, r
fused to appoint more than three mem
bers John E. King, Leonard aud Ludtl
lag. These three constituted a
quorum. Without the attend
ance of all three of .the judges the cour
could not transact business, and 0 ef
feet Lad no existence. Of course the
two vacant seats In the court can never
be tilled, since even if Packard, assum
ing to be governor, should nominate
them, he woulu have no senate that
wsuld confirm them. Thus It will L
seen that the abandonment ot the court
by either of the three Judges virtual
1 destroys its existence. By accepti
the coUectorsblp. Mi tabaudons -the
court. . But this is not alL Leonard.
other ot the Judges of the Packard court
la elected to congress from
district la which there l
contest, and will of course be
tv-ated. Jt U asserted that had King
bold out, Leonard would nut haw
claimed his seat In congress, "and . the
court, with a constitutional quorum,
would have;made an Issue before the . m
ted States soprem j court.To prevent such
an Issue being made It wai necessary to
Induce one member of the court to aban
don it, and thus leave it without a quo-
ram. King accepted the colleclor&bip',
the court has no quorum, and.wltbout a
quorum no existance. The appointment
of King solves the difficulties which oe-
aet Hayes, and be has no more tear oi
the rival courts in Louisiana.
CAPITAL STOCK AMWSKESrTsV
The Bloomlngton Leader publishes
senate bill 114, relating to assessment of
capital stock of corporations, and then
says of it : ' ' ' "
"This Is one ot the most important
bills which has been before the legisla
ture at Its present session. It is claimed
by certaiu corporations Uiat, owing to a
misapprehension of the correct meaning
of certain sections oi the revenue law of
1873, unjust and excessive valuations
were assessed upon the capital stock ot
incorporated companies doing business
In the state tor the years 1873, 1874 and
1875, whereoy the aggregate assessments
ware, in man cases. Increased one
hundred per cent., and In some
cases mora than one hundred per
cent. Thla excessive taxation was re
el,., 1 tf . mifx.rilon, and a larjre
Theoblcct of this bill is to give tb'c SYliUs
board ot equalization the power to revise
these assessments, and whatever injus
tice shall appear to have been done, to
to nmka such reduction n. Jn tho mtnt
Ion or trie board, are just and equitable
to the companies of the state. H'e can
see no reason why the bill is not a good
one. II injustice has been done, it is
right and proper that corrections shoukl
be made. It is not likely that the board
will abuse its power, and a settle
ment arrived at, in the way pro
posed, will undoubtedly give satis
faction to the companies interested,
and result in the prompt payment, to
the state, ot the taxes that are justly
due. The assessments for the years
named were manifestly erroneous, and It
is no more than right that an opportu
nity should be given to correct any mis
takes that may have been made. The
state only demands a lair and equitable
assessment, and any excessive or unjust
valuation, in the case of corporations,
would be just as wrongful as it would be
in the case of individuals. We hope the
bill will pass, and that our representatives
will give their support to a measure
which is so manifestly just and proper.
The .New York Tribune, (Republican)
gets off the following: "There may be
some green things in Louisiana which
have not yet been devoured by Packard
and Kelloggand Warmoth and Casey
and Pitkin and Durell, and the worthies
that swarmed behind them. But is it a
wonder that the people ot that state con
template the departure ot these depreda
tors with the same se ise of relief with
which the western agriculturist watches
a flight ot grasshoppers In retreat?"
Tun length of the extra session of
congress will depend entirely on whether
it enters Into general business or not.
J f it Is limited to the passage of the ap
proprlatlon bill, the session will In all
probability not last to exceed ten days;
wui u u oouthern Pacific railroad bill
ana several outer scheme t-iir r
are to be passed on, tho session will
probably last a month or six weeks.
J he Omana Herald says "what puz
zles Puckard is that Hayes was elected
and he was not." That Is what puzzles
Blaine. It particularly puzzles Pitt Kellogg.-
In f3t how Hayes could have
Deeu elected and Packard defeated, when
the.lluyes electors received a thousand
yotes less than Packard received, Is one
of those ugly conundrums which is a
puzzle for everybody.
Washington dispatches say that in his
message to the special session of con
gress .President Hayes will favor the
.Southern Pacific railroad bill ; also, that
southern members say this is a part of
ttie president's southern policy.
A bill appropriating $27,000 for the
additional bronze groups tor the Lincoln
monument passed the lower house of the
Illinois legislature on Tuesday last. The
bill will meet with very little opposition
in the senate.
The State Register; "'lhey say now
the reason why Hayes has abandoned
the attempt to reconstruct the Whig
party is, that Mrs. Hayes is opposed to
the "hard elder plank" ot the plutform."
