I jSaTURDAY NOV. 9, 1878.
International Missescription. : Some of tbe members of the Con stitutional Convention seem to have become possessed with the Mm that the new instrument should contain provisions iv regard to about everything under the sun. A Constitution should bs a briel lad flexible but comprehensive document. While it should faith tally guard the interests of the peo ple, and provide against any disas trous laxity, it should leave a great deal to tbe Legislature. Iv pro portion as its provisions are minute and frivolous is tbe probability that It will not be of an enduring char acter, even if adopted by the peo ple, and that a new Cenvention would have to be called shortly to remedy Us defects. Because tbe State of California bas chosen to call a Constitutional Convention it does not follow that the present ex cellent Constitution should be changed from turret to foundation •tone. The precedents set in Amending the Constitution of the United States are worthy of imi tation. Those changes have al ways been few but vital. We will venture tbe assertion that the ma terial amendments to tbe Constitu tion desired by the people of Cali fornia could be comprised in a hair doien sheets of foolscap. The most fatal tendency of late years is to wards prolixity, and prolixity al ways Involves confusion. The Leg islature of a Stato should be ac corded a very wide latitude. Tbe assumption ought to be that such bodies will, on the average, repre •ant tbe wishes of the people, ant tbe ability of the latter to give ex pression by law to their varying Bloods aud the ueeds of the com monweallh should be hampered as little as possible. There are some people unsophisticated enough to Imagine that it is tiie assertion o aright In the Constitution of a Htate which gives the common wealth Ihe attribute of eminen domain, tho power to control cor porations, etc., etc. The fact o course is that these rights are icci dent to its very sovereignty, ant pass without belugasserted. There are others who properly desire to cbeek Chinese immigration, am who favor the idea that "Tho Chi nese must go," who think tlia It Is in the power of the people of Califoruia to dis pose of this matter iv their organic law, without regard to tbat provision of the Couatitutinu of the United States which makes all treaties with foreign powers made by the President aud Senate, a part of the supreme law of the ■Ind. Where there is so much mis ooticepttau-af the scope aud purpose of the Constitution nf a State it will not be surpriseng if some highly absurd provisions were to creep into the document which will next year be submitted to the vote of tbe people of California. Those who desire to see the work of tbe Convention count for some thing should guard steadily against tbe accumulation of absurdities and frivolities in its draft. A Representative Senator. There is no obligation of party which withholds a Democrat from giving a meed of praise to au op ponent. The career of Boecoe Conklingduring the past two years it one of the notable incidents of our Congressional history. He has outlined the dignity and power of a Senator of the United States more OODapicuously perhaps than any of for tho reason that has been greater. He has scrupulously refrained, ■Inee the day Mr. Hayes entered the White House, from any act -which recognized that person's nominal headship of the nation or party. He took up an attitude of cold and pitiless contempt towards the administration which stung it worse than the most Uery and out spoken opposition would have done. Mr. Hayes aud his Secretary of State, Mr. Evarts, declared for ven geance, and theheadof every one of Roscoe Coukling's friends who held office was to bo taken as the first installment of a spite whose ultimate triumph was to be the defeat nf Mr. Conkliug for re election to the Uultod Stales Sen ate from Now York. Mr. Conkliug picked up the gage of battle and beat the administration ou its chosen ground. With dismay the President found that he could uot even remove, without- other cause than their friendspip for Senator Conkllng, a single ofllce-holder in New York. The Senate of the United States sustained Mr. Conk- Hog from first to last. The Presi dent was driven to tbe pitiable necessity of waiting for the ad journment of Congress to suspend & Conkling's friends. But bis o Wnlug inortifiaatiou is to come. ,Ie will be obliged to report Ibe facte of these suspensions, with hie reasons for I his aotion, aud their restoration, in despite cf the Presidential pleasure, is ex ceedingly probable. But, however tbis may be, Roscoe Coukling has triumphed at all points, and he will be his own successor by one of tbe largest majorities ever given by a New York Legislature. It is pleas ant to know that Mr. Coukling held Ihe carpet-bag members of tbe United States Senate in as much contempt as Hayes himself. One of the incidents of the re-as sembling of Congress after the electoral count was the advent of tbe carpet-bag Senator Patterson, of South Carolina, who advanced with extended hand to Conkliug. The latter strode past the South Carolina criminal without seeming to see him. To his credit be It said he bas always aimed to uphold the dignity of his party and of the Sen atorial oharacter, and if a Republi can Senator must represent New York we are heartily glad that Roscoe Conkliug is the man. He stands the victor lv an epic fight. "Redeeming" Pennsylvania. One of the comedy aspects of the late Ulegrams is that " Pennsylva nia Is redeemed." Perhaps somo of the readers of the Herald do not know the significance or this gratulation over tbe fact tliat the Dutch have taken Holland, or its equivalent—the Republicans have carried Pennsylvania. The great State of Pennsylvania is simply a closed borough of the Camerons. Though it contains nearly four millions of people it is really what ln Englaud used to he known as a "pocket" borough. The English were wise enough, though England is a monarchy, to abolish these travesties ou popular representa tion. The elder Cameron —old Si mon—a man of many amiable traits, by the way, is proliably the most corrupt politician that ever sat iv the Uuited States Senate. He procured his first eleotlon to the United States Senate from Pennsylvania by the purchase, with money, of Lebo, Manear aud Wagonseller, an infamous trio who sold out Col. John W. Foruey, who was Cameron's oppouetit. The next conspicious appearance nf Cameron in our politic* was as Mr. Lincoln's Secretary of War. Mr. Lincoln dismissed Cameron from his Cabinet on written allegations of gross corruption signed by two thirds ut tho Republican Senators and Repreßeuatives in Congress. For nearly twenty years old Simon sat iv the United States Senate as oue of the Senators from Pennsyl vania; and, when he had grown too o.d aud feeble to stand the wear and tear any longer, he issued an edict to the Penusylvauia Legisla ture to elect his son Don. That servile liody did as it was told. The election of Tuesday in Penu sylvauia shows that (he corrupt harpies who surround the Camer ons, owing to the third party of National Labor, have suc ceeded in again chaining a great State to their chaiiot wheels. It means that Don Cameron is to be his owu successor. And this is called "redeeming" Pennsylvania ! God save the mark, say we. We confess that we are not without hope of hearing that this vulture section of tho Republiciu party, though heralded as successful, have bad their game blocked. It may be that enough National labor men have beeu elected to the Legisla te c, added to the Democrats, to render "Woodson's little gamfc" of no avail. We publish in our local columns a communication from a "Demo crat," who seems to think that everything has been cut and dried for the mass meeting called to nom inate a People's ticket, which as sembles in the County Court room at 7:30 this evening. We sympa thize in the movement for nom inating a municipal ticket irrespec tive of politics, and wo heartily trust that Democrats and Republi cans will attend tbe meeting as near as may be in equal numbers for the single purpose of securing eligible nominees. We hope Ihere will be no desire to take any suap judg ment on any one, or to air parti zau sharp practice. There are many excellent gentlemen amongst those named by out correspondent, and we feel assured tliat they would be the first to discouutenauce any such tactics. Democrats may be certain of a fair hearing by attend ing in large numbers, and we hope our Republican fellow citizens will also be represented. We flud the following in the mining items of the Bali Francisco Evening Post: A group of mines iv Resting Springs district, Xnyo couuty,about 200 miles from Independence, have been sold to San Francisco parties for $40,000. Tbe parties are about to build a mill, having contracted with the Cerro Gordo Freighting Company to haul machinery and materials from Mohave. The country Is represented to bo well timbered and watered, and the mines are large and rich. These mines are distinctively a portion of the back country of Los Angeles. A number of our most enterprising citizeus have been engaged for the past year or more in developing them and we are glad to note that genuine work is promised. We have beard most flattering things of these mines from judicious prospectors. We publish elsewhere a tabu lated statement of the complexion of the next House of Represents lives, complied by the Chicago Timet. This table gives the Re publicans 132 members. We re peat tbat tbe Republicans will have, at tbe outside, 125 members decidedly under than over that fig ure. There are a number of things to be straightened out in these tables. A week will do It.

R. Morrison, and has usually shown large Democratic majori ties. The Greenbacker elected in the Fifteenth Illinois district was opposed only by a Democrat and probably received a great number of Republican votes. Tbe Green backer in Indiana was the joint nominee of the Greenbackers and Democrats aud will be most likely to act with the Democrats. The two Greenbaokers were also joint nominees of the Greenbackers and Democrats. The Third and Tenth Kentucky districts are still in doubt, with the chances about even. One of the Greenbackers in Maino was elected by the aid of the Dem ocratic vote. The Missouri Green backer was opposed by a Democrat and probably received the strength of the Republlcad vote. The Green backer in Pennsylvania will proba bly act with the Republicans. The Eleventh Pennsylvania district is still in doubt and claimed by both parties. Dull Kuire Talks- Chicago, Now. Bth.—A. Times Camp Robinson dispatch says: Dull Knife yesterday, addressing the friendly Sioux and Red Cloud, who bad been urging them to baoome reconciled, said, "We came back, my friends, to live with you. We went south by the advice or whites. We were driven to desperation, our women and children died of disease and hunger. We would rather be shot than live in that country and we cams north where we bad been well treated. We want to live witb the Sioux and be at peace witb the whites. Some of our young warriors ran away from us, murdered whites aud escaped north. None of us have dene wrong aud all we want is peace." Turning to Lieut. Chase be said, "Let us go. We ask for none of our property. We will walk to Red Cloud agency and live in peace, but we can't go south. We were always well treated here by 'Three Stars.'(General Crook.) We were taken Irom our country to a strange land. Tell the Great Father and General Crook about us." To whloh Lieut. Chase replied, "The Great Father and Gen. Crook know about you. You are subject to their orders." Iv an interview with Lieut. Chase afterwards, lie said, " All ludiuns are good as soon as tbey are captured or killed." Theße very Cheyennes have trophys of murdered whites. They have shawls of women, bed clothing that could only oome from homes whei • women were mistresses., and chil dren's clothes evidently taken from white families on their murderous march from the South. neuatur luffiilts S}|ielvt-«l, Atchison, Ks., Nov.
