Questions. . Th* attempt to assassinate Pres tdoat Garfield, by tbe fool or luna- Ue,Qultteau, le now, fortunately, in 'Itself, an Immaterial matter. The Piooldont ha* rsoeived two trl asUxg wound*, whose importance Inaboen exaggerated by a lot of White House toadies, surgeons and * ethers, who have concealed the fact that he suffered from a slight in- Jary in the arm, and another triv ial flesh wound Id tbe anus—tbe plrce wbere be was wounded in the war—neither of which, God be ■called, do. In Ibe least, menace . his living out his term. It is perhaps pardonable that Blame ha* played tbe Incident for all It is :' worth, In reference to the Henato '* Ifeai struggle at Albany. ■ But, iv view efthe fact tbat Conkling bas aiotloK a vote thereby, It would ' have been better, tn the long run, to have treated the people honest >• If. A regular Humpty Durapty neiltleal programme, while It may : Via tor the moment, will ultimate ' .ty miscarry, and stage effects react disastrously, like a boomerang, Vhus, though Garfield, to the de light of all Ainlerioans, may be ' stale to play a game of football I Within a week, if bis political aaaaagere would allow him to do U. certain grave constitutional ; sjaestions remain. Iv the first place, Oarfield, in stead of being Injured in a trivial way, might have received a mortal wound, and very grave questions, lefivnegleoted in a criminal man- might have been sprung upon the people of the United States. Beery on* who reads newspapers remembers the unpardonable fail ... ore of tbe last Senate of tbe United States to elect a President are tempore of the Senate. Tbe failure to elect such au offi ; elal wasdue to tbe profound self ; lehness of the Republican party. >•■ After that organization bad pur chased one Mahone, of Virginia, it required the casting vote of Vioe President Arthur to make a major ity' of one in the Senate. The me ant Arthur should leave, the § Be nets was a tie, and a Democrat might thus bava been elected President pro tempore. Conse quently, Arthur stuck in the chair, aad was caretul not to leave It al though tbo politioal and constitu tional situation was gravsly com promised, as a result of this selfish and mercenary politioal policy. Chief Jostle* Story, In his com caantarle* upon tbe Constitution of ) the United States, says, page 642, I #7*l, "Th* original scheme of the i "Constitution did not embrace (as "baa been already stated) tbe ap "pointment of any Vice President, "aad In ease of the death, resigna tion or disability of the President, I "th* President of tbe Senate was to "perform the duties of bis office. "The appointment of a Vice Presl "dent was carried by a vote of ten "-—V-mttk+Ooo. Congress, in pur- Seeofthe power here given, provided tbat, in esse, of the j "death, resignation and inability "of tbe President and Vice Presl ' "dent, the President of the Senate | "pro tempore, and in case tbere "•ball be no President, then v "tb* Speaker of the House of Rep "rassntstivee, for the time being, | •shall aot aa Preside&t, until tbe I ''disability shall be removed, or a i "President shall be elected." th* present caae, should Gar | field die, of which melancholy «■ event tbere is not one chance in * fifty theuaand, tbere is uo Presi is dent jsro tempore of the Senate, for l reasons already explained. The ■ question would then turn ou tbe . point as to whether tbere la al>o uo i Speaker of tbe House of Represent ) atives, the expression "tbe Speaker | of the Heuee of Representatives, for L the time being," appearing to be at P least, vagu* and Indeterminate. Shore Is no Speaker of the new i House, and cannot be, until it as aombles, and the question would be X; as to whether Mr. Raudall, the ! SJaeakarof the last House, would eASSe under the designation, "tbs flsoohsr for the time being." *~ , Admitting that there Is neither f-m President, a Vice President, a * rteslrtsnl of the Senate pro tern jsere, aor a Speaker of tbe House, " fe» ihe time being, and bearing in V BSiad tb* provision of ths Consti pwßtloß that Congress may enact £ h)WS providing for tbe succession, 1 WO fiad, on turning to tbe Revised of tb* United States, that Pwhs oevly provisions mads In ths pSpßfi of there being neither a Vice jbtwldiiil. • President of tbe Sen || an tempore, nor • Speak y»' sjf the Boas* of Rep for tho time being, ■eMsMaary «f State of tb* soi load formulas, shall Issue writs of sleetioD tv tbe several States. The modus operandi, times, etc., of this procedure are provided for in the Revised Statutes. Nothing, however, Is said as to who shall be President ad interim. But as this contingency, in view of Garfield's robuat condition, would be ranged under tbat title of the old common law known as potentia remeiii tima, we decline to follow the sub ject further. Garfield will live out his term, and the men whom he has bstraysd will ultimately tri umph over him, but suoh oouslder ations do not enter into the consti tutional questions we are discuss ing. The faot which overshadows ths manlao attempt to assassinate Garfield ia still exigent, viz., that the Presidential succession re mains In a most Indefensible aud criminal vagueoes. Tbe hoggish partizan greed of tbe Republican party, wbiob first led to the pur chase of Mahone, and afterwards to a closed borough system ot tactics In the Senate which, lot the first time In our history, bas left us without a President pro tempore ot tbe Senate of tbe United States, is outlined by the faots*we have re capitulated. When Rosooe Conk ling said that there were too many hogs io tbe Republican party he knew what be was talking about. Dropping all partizan aspsets of the mstter, it is lamentable tbat a constitutional and national phase >f our administrative system ihould be left in such grave ioubts aa encompass everything which relates to the Presidency and Vice Presidency of the United States. Should Garfield die, and Arthur become President, with a full development of the evidenoe tbat he ia "an unnaturalized for eigner," as Gen. J. B. Stedmau called him,where is tbe machinery to deprive him of tbe office? as to resignation or refusal to accept the offloe, Judge Story says: "What shall be the proper proof "of the resignation of tbe Presi dent or Vice-President, or of their "refusal to accept tbe office, is left "open by tbe Constitution. But "Congress, with great wisdom and "foresight, has provided that it "shall be by some instrument in "writing, declaring the same, sub scribed by tbe party, and deliv ered into the office of the Beere "tary of State." So far so good. Resignation or refusal to accept the office of Presi dent is considered by Judge Story. But that wise commentator Is dis creetly si lent as to everything tbat relates to the disability of the Pres ident. Tbe Constitution ol tbe United States expressly stipulates tbat tbe President must either bs a natural born citizen of tbe United States, or a foreign born oltizen resident in tbe country at the time of tbe adoption of that instrument. But suppose he is neither? Tbere is the rub; beoause we cannot, for tbe life of us, asoertain a remedy. In tbe foregoing we have outlined a few of the lamentable deficien cies of our boasted Constitution when put to tbe stress of a real cri sis, aud tbe great remissness of the Senate at its last session. The Chroniole, like tbe Alta, falls into a ludicrous error as to the effect of the election of two Repub lican Senators from New York, to succeed tbe Messrs, Conkling and Piatt. Both of these sapient jour nals think tbat tbe Senators thus elected would, of course, vote in the election of a President pro tem pore ol the Senate. As a matter of fact tbere would be no possibility ef tbeir so voting. The Democratic Secretary of tbe Senate would read a list of the Senate as it stood at the adjournment. Tbese gentle men would at once prooeed to eleot a President of the Senate. Having completed tbe organization of the Senate,which, by tbe Constitution, Isthennal and only judge of the qualifications of its own members, the claims of the two new New York Senators would then be scru tinized in due and parliamentary order. If bribery or otber gross disabilities were discovered In bar of "their claims, decent aud orderly proceedings would be had thereupon. At this stage, with a Democratic President's oastiug vote, even If two Republican Sen ators were elected from New York, tbe Democrats would have a ma jority of one—Just reversing the position of affairs in the last ses sion of that august body. A UOKRESPONDENT iv our local i oolumna calls us to task for an edi torial in yesterday's Herald in relation to the City Superintendent of Scbools. We are asked therein 'if we have taken pains to asoertain 1 tbe fesllng of tbe people of this community upon the matter. In reply we beg to say that we were very particular In our Inquiries, ' and we believe that more than nine out of ten of tbe Inhabitants of Los Angeles are averse to the dismissal of Mrs. Jonss and op posed to the importation of an Ao abeimer to run our schools, to say nothing of ths darkly hinted in crease In salaries wbloh is being mooted. When Dr. Kurtz got up publicly and paid Mrs. Jones a just and chivalrous compli ment upon ber happy and successful management of our city sobools he emphasised the sentiment of our whole people on tbe subject. Tbe past year has been one of marked progress la all _a>__t a_r_aav.\agsaar*aWata_ s>_ssh_< ajPfflS*?. B w*_Oa l "vH_-.... tTtS_» wbo bave looked Into ths matter deprecate very heartily Mrs. Jones's deposition. Ih view of tbe ambiguous lan guage of everything relating to the subject In tbe Const Un tion of the United States, we are not sure but that we were precipitate lv dismiss ing Speaker Randall as a possible successor to tbe Presidency. The language of the Constitution Is Speaker /or the time being, which would seem to cover the old Speak er as to all time Intervening before the election of a new one. We note that the San Franolsoo Chron icle, In its summary of tbe possi bilities, takes Randall very daeld edly into the count,and it is certain ly justified In so doing. Tbe sub ject Is a very dark and dubious one at best, and aa the Constitution givss Congress the power to regu-; late Ibe Presidential succession as to all points In wbiob it is itself si lent, tbat duty ought to be dis charged at the earliest practicable day.

Banks, a discharged officer ot tbe prison, testified to having, en one occasion certainly and perhaps on others, Been tbe Warden under the Influence of liquor during tbe early part of his stay at the prison. Latterly be bad not noticed it. Most of tbs aftsrnoon wss taken up by tbe examination of Moral In structor Cumminge. The charges tbe witness bad made against the Warden were not substantiated by his testimony, whils It was shown that he had endeavored to have prisoners smuggled out of the pris on to esoape arrest on other charg es. He had been In tbe receipt of money from convicts and had in terested himself to procure com mutation of sentences. Some other testimony was takeu aud thus far the Investigation seems to fall In establishing the charges hereto fore published, aside from the ques tion of Indulgence in liquor by the Wsrden, which Is still, to a certain extent, au open question.

Dr. Bliss confirmed wbat the Secretary said and ad..cd: "Tbe dis charge this morning was small, about three drops Id all, and was entirely bealtby.
