C THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN HAS A LARGER CIRCULATION THAN AST OTHER JTORXIXO PAPER IX THE DISTRICT OF CO LUMBIA. MOIDAY MORNING ::::uDECEMBER 14, 1871. King Kalakaua arrived in the city last Saturday, and was appropriately received by the represcnt.tivcs of the Government. The ceremonies and scenes incident to the occasion will he found fully set forth in our news 'columns. Bin. Irwin, who spent, the report says, seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars to secure the passage of the Pacific mail sub sidy, has written a letter here, in which he dimly alludes to some "newspaper men" a his only friends. The interesting ques tion now is, " Who are they V In other com un i c reproduce an arti ck from the St. Paul Prat, which strongly urges a hioad and liberal policy of internal improvements upon the part or the Govern ment as the opportunity of the Republican parly. The reasons andarguments used are sul'st.tntiaily the same as tliose advanced in tli.s journal during the last two years. Tin i:e is a strong di-position manifested 1-j Mine of the more practical men of large lmanc ial experience ill both Houses of Con gress to resuscitate and press forw ard, with seme slight modifications, House bill Xo. 12:b, introduced early in the last session lij Bui. Freeman Clark, of Rochester, X. Y. I' provides for coin redemption of grccnlacks by the 4th of July, 1876, with the right of reissue and the simultaneous repeal of the limit to the issues of national bank currency. It also contemplates the establishment of a joint stock bank in New York, which shall act as a clearing house and redeeming agent for national banks. National banks to be exempt from taxation on the average amount of their deposit with this bank of redemption, the latter paying such tax. The Secretary of the Treasury is to sell no more coin or otherwise pay out more than may be necessary to meet the interest on the public debt and the re quired contributions to the sinking fund, until the amount on hand shall have reached one hundred millions, which amount is deemed sufficient for the redemption of such portion of greenbacks as may be pre sented. These principles conform to the English system as operated through the Bank of England, and are both simple and sound. That such a system can be car ried into effect without any disturbance of the monetary affairs of the country there is ittle doubt in the minds of its advocates. Tun Baltimore American calls upon Mr. Blaine to come down from the desk and lead the party in the House. It says : ' 'What man is there in the present Con gress that possesses the courage, the ad "dress, the tact and the ability rcquisiteto "harmonize the discordant elements of the "majority; to prevent splits and divisions " upon questions involving matters of party "policy; to wield the legislative power of "the House so as to benefit the whole " country, and build up the shattered for " tunes of Republicanism in short to in jure the election of a Republican Presi "dent in 187C? There may be many men " in the House who have the nerve to un dertake and the ability to perform this "htrcultan task, but the Republicans of "the East and West have, with singular " unanimity, designated Speaker Blaine as "the man who ought to take the floor in ' thi- crisis and direct the course of lcgis "latiu: He is an admirable presiding of " ficer, and it would be difficult to find a "man who could fill the Speaker's chair so "acceptably, but there is an almost unani " mous opinion that during the remainder " of the session the services of Mr. Blaine "arc needed on the floor. Wc do not ' knew that he would consent to take the "place of Mr. Dawes, or that his personal "wishes in the matter have been consulted, "but when we find the intelligent Repub licans of the country turning as it were " instinctively to him as a strong man, able " to shoulder a heavy responsibility and " earn- it bravely through, we think that a patriotic sense of duty should induce "him to weigh well the considerations " that he may think sufficient to compel "him to decline the proffered honor." A LITTLE CALCULATION. It was stated a short time since in a New Yoik paper that wheat had been carried over the Erie canal from Buffalo and down the Hudson river to New York during the past season by the steamers now running on the canal for five cents a bushel. This is a decided improvement on twelve cents, and is one of those quiet facts which lead to a revolution in the business of the coun try. If the steamers can carry wheat for teven cents and we wish to be within the mark there would be a saving of five cents on every bushel moved between Buffalo and New York, or ?1.CG on each ton. The present boats on the Erie canal have a capacity of only 210 tons; if they had a capacity of COO tons, as has been recom mended, (the canal be'ng enlarged,) the rates of transportation would unquestion ably be considerably reduced. There is no doubt that freight would be taken from Buffalo to New York for 51.50 a ton, which is less than five cents a bushel. Mr. J. D. Hayes, general manager of the Blue Line East Freight, Detroit one of the most intelligent of the transportation ex perts examined by the Senate Select Com mittee on Transportation Routes to the Sea board stated in his evidence that this figure could be realized by the enlargement of the canal and the employment of steamers of GOO tons. That declaration was made fn September, 1873. In twelve months the feat was accomplished, or very nearly so, y the introduction of steam on the canal, and that with boats of 200 tons. Mr. Hayes further stated that with large vessels of 2,000 tons navigating the lake3 the freights between Chicago and BuSalo could be reduced to $1.50 per ton, or $3 from Chicago to New York : and that the trip could be made in ten or twelve days. The Senate committee inform us in their report that by the construction of the Hen nepin canal or the "Wisconsin and Fox rivers improvement the rates between the Mississippi river and Chicago can be re duced ten cents on every bushel, or $3.33 per ton. The present freight charge be tween Chicago and New York is about ?9 per ton by rail and f 7 by water. Putting it at ?7, the improvement of this canal and the employment of large vessels on the lakes would secure a saving of $4 on each ton moved between Chicago and New York, and $7.33 on each ton moved from the Mississippi river, (with the construction of a canal between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi.) Mr. Hayes stated also, in his evidence, that the through tonnage now on this route and by the great through lines of rail amounted to about 13,000,000 tons an nually, and would, "before the end of the " present century, probably be swelled to "50,000,000 tons." Therefore, taking the present movement (13,000.000 tons) we should save every year, by the creation of such a route, more than $93,000,000. These are the figures; who can controvert them? The achievement of the steamers during the past seasm on the Eric canal is a guarantee that the figures may be, in the main, trusted. There is, however, one abatement to be made. The water route could not regulate the tariff of charges in the winter season, because it would not be in operation. The only corrective of this is the adoption also of another recommenda tion of the Senate Committee the opening of a more Southern route from the valley of the Mississippi to the seaboard. If Mr. Hayes' prophesy shrll be realized, and there shall bo in twenty-five years 50,000,000 of through tonnage between Chicago and New York, the aggregate amount between the "West and the East ready for all routes w ill be even greater, and we shall have abundant need of several great water lines from the "West to the seaboard. If there be, however, only 50,000,000 tons to be moved, a saving of 7.33 on each ton will mount up to 5300,000,000 per annum. That, however, to the American mind is a long way removed twenty-five years. "Wc come back, therefore, to the present. The saving now would be ?93,000,000 a year. But the effect on the value of the farms of the "Western States would be equally startling. The improved lands of the eight Northwestern States Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, "Wisconsin, ML souri, Kansas and Nelraska amount to about 30,000,000 acres. A reduction of 22 cents on the cost or transportation of every bushel of produce, dividing the amount saved between the producer and the consumer, would add 11 cents to the value of every bushel of wheat, corn, etc. Allowing a production of 20 bushels per acre, each acre would get a net benefit of 2.0 annually, which is 10 per cent, on a capital of ?22. In oilier words, each acre would be enhanced in value 22, and the aggregate value added to the improved lands of the eight States mentioned would be 1,232,000,000. This is not the whole of it. "We must add the increased value of the farms in other States and the value added to the unimproved lands. THE DU1 Y OF THE REPUBLICAN LEADERS. Success in politics, as in war, generally accompanies aggressive campaigns. The best of principles and the best of plans are practically worthless without pluck. Men who have the courage of the wrathful dove or most magnanimous mouse must in evitably drop to the rear to do whatsoever is in their power to retard, advance, and, when collision comes, to add to the shame of defeat the disjrace of a route. If we have such men in prominent position now, -courage must be infused into them some how, cr they must step down and out of places where, in the present situation of affairs, they can do only harm, and bring disaster alone to the Republican party and to the country. g"What is the situation? The Republi cans are in a large majority in both branches of Congress. They have the Administration. "Whatsoever they shall agree upon, as to the general policy of the party, must prevail at least for the time beiqg. They are confronted with hard times, the consequent discontent, and not a few positive ills growing out of the legis lation of the past They have a vivid recollection of a recent defeat in the elec tions. Anybody can stand a victory. Great political generalship is shown in making the most of a defeat, so that in the end triumph may be insured. In a word, the Republican party is in precisely that predicament where brave leadership is an absolute necessity, and where timid ad visers can be of no possible account. Every word the latter say, and everything they do, tends to produce a political panic. Men of this kind it, the Republican party w ho happen to occupy prominent positions have simply outlived their usefulness. "Wc have briefly outlined above the prac tical situation. "What is the fact as to the issues of the da? Here there is dispute. Let this dispute be settled by an authori tative Republican policy; and let that pol icy be announced now during this session of Congress. "We have no hesitation in saying that a poor policy in respect to the pressing issues of the times is better than no policy at all. But with wise, brave leadership, a good policy can be eliminated out of the action of this Congress upon which the country can be rallied to re newed, even enthusiastic, support of the Republican party, so that no opposition can prevail against it permanently for many years to come. AVhat should that policy be? In the first place, we may say nega tively, it should not confidently depend upon the glories of the past. These mainly belong to history, and in politics have had their day. When you talk "Fort Sumter" to starving men, you only add to their dis content. As affairs now exist in this re public, the events of the late war have little more to do with shaping public opinion than the deaths of Peter and Paul and the rest of the immortal saints of Christianity. For the present we may let the dead past remain very quietly buried. But, in the second place, there arc questions pertaining to the living picsent and the future which the Republicans must shape into unity, harmony, a well-considered polity, through which the nation shall be placed upon the road to general prosperity and permanent progress. This cannot be done by spigot hole economy; by dismissing a few men and more women from the Treasury De partment; by cutting down appropriations' to the amount of half a shirt "button apiece to the able-bodied men of this republic; nor by melancholy speeches in the tearful style of Mr. Job Trotter on any or all sub jects. Great measures, coming home to the whole people, are required; measures which shall secure speedily soundness of finance, the Inauguration of transportation reform, the restoration of material pros perity through internal improvements, the development of our vast mineral resources, the resurrection of our commercial marine, the judicious amend ment of the tariff, the more com plete establishment of civil rights to all citizens in some of the States. Hero are questions of immediate importance and of national bearing. "We shall speak of each and all of them from day to day in these columns, giving specifically our views touching the duty of the Republican party in regard thereto. Meantime, that Repub lican who shall do most to put these ques tions in shape for practical legislation, forming therewith a national polity, is the coming man. If there be no such Repub lican leader, the coming man may bo a Democrat, or belong to a party whose name we have not heard. "We beseech our public men to stop chronicling small beer and enter upon the great, the pressing duties of statesmanship. TnE New York Herald of a recent date con tains an article upon Washington in which It says: "The difficulties about Waahlneton are that it Is an overnursed baby. It has many elements or natural growth If It were only allowed to grow. There Is fine water power, a valuable river, mineral deposits within easy access, an agricultural country surrounds It, and It Is within easy access to the sea. There Is xo reason why, with the water power of the Potomac, "Washington should not become an Important manufacturing centre; why, In other words, It, like Philadelphia or Baltimore or Cincinnati, should not support itself. There Is no reason why there should not be one hun dred thousanl people In Washington lhrlnjr upon the Industry and manufactures of the city and independent of the Government." This Is the popular but at the same time igno rant style of treating the Washington ques tion, for the management and government of tbe Capital has become a question of national importance, and as such must be dealt with. We have said that the writer of the above article has not shown a thorough knowledge or any knowledge at all of the condition of tbe city or Its history. In the first place, "Washington is not an "over nursed baby." If she has been nursed at all it has been on the "baby-farming plan." For over seventy years the city had been "nursed" by the General Government in such away that it became the disgrace of the whole Union a city of mud In winter and dirt and dust In summer. At last the people, in self defence, were compelled to ask permission to improve it. That Improvement was made in such a way as to excite the wonder and ad miration of the whole country. The worst paved streets of any city In the Union have been con verted Into the finest on the continent. The Capitol and the Government ofUces have been made accessible, which they hardly were be fore. The citizens have paid or agreed to pay their proportion of the expense, but the Gen eral Government, which legitimately owes nearly five millions of dollars for Improvements around its property, declines to pay a single cent. This Is the kind ol "nursing" to which we have been treated from the very beginning. The talk about our noble river and manufac tures, etc., Is all bosh. While millions and millions of dollars are sunk annually in ob scure harbors and rivers which have hardly an existence even on the map, the "noble Poto mac" does not receive enough to keep the channel clear. How could we have commerce, or anything else, under these circumstances I The New York Commercial Advertiser in speaking about King Kalakaua's visit to this city sajs: "Thanks to the enerprctic and Intel ligent efforts of its late municipal authorities, the National Capital has so much Improved In cleanliness and general appearance that It will make on KingKalakaua afatorablc impres sion, which will not be diminished even if he visits afterward London, Paris and Berlin. As to population and monuments, Washing ton cannot of course be compared with those ancient and large cities, but it is certainly su perior to them as to the features which ought to characterize the Capital of a country so new that it has not yet reached its first cen tennial anniversary." There was something wrong with the tele graphic editors of the Chicago TYi&ime and the Baltimore American last Thursday and Friday. The former journal prints Its Wash ington dispatches under the head of Spring field, and the latter prints them without any head w hatever. It was all In the "heads." Ax exchange prints the following ghastly and terrible picture: "The harpies of the lobby arc flapping their wings and snapping their beaks, at the National Capital, hungry for the prey which they expect to snatch from the Congressional table." m "The Fioaeo," a weekly journal devoted to society and fashionable Intelligence, literatures and art, made its appearance yesterday moraine and met with a warm and hospitable reception. It aims to present a record each week of the social events of the capital, and la In every way a neat and attractive paper. Its mechanical appear ance and arrangement are excellent, and all Its departments are carefully prepared and edited. It looks as Hit had come to stay. The London " Quarterly Review" for October contains several interesting articles, amonewhlch may be mentioned: "The Jesuits;" "Venice, Its Rise and Fall;" "Architecture;" "The Ritual of the English Church," Ac Ac For sale by War ren Uhoate A Co. The editor or the St. Louis Globe refers to the editor of the Democrat of the same city as a "tal ented Idiot." No wonder nil the St. Louis edi tors carry short guns. THE GOVERNMENT AND TUE TELE ORAPIT. CN. Y. Republic Senator West's proposal to construct a Govern ment telegraph from Washington to Boston, through Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York, encounters the opposition of the journals Inter ested in maintaining the present monopoly. They have butter for their bread tho public knows not of, and the firkin Is a big one. Everything Is done that can be done to keep the country In Ig norance of the whole subject and turn the preju dice against the proposed Improvement, which has facts, figures, reason, the public needs, the Interests of journalism, tbe prosperity of com merce, and the whole conntry in Its favor. One of our morning papers, which sometimes seems to be edited In a private telegraph office, objects to Mr. West's bill because It doivt believe In the Government's undertaking the business of pri vate Individuals or corporations. It has more to manage now than It can manage decently." But this begs the whole qnettlon. We don't believe In private corporations dolnz the work that be longs ot right to the General Government; and If carrying the malls Is a public business we should like to know why carrying telegraphic messages should be regulated by private monop oly. If the postal service properly belongs with in the province of Government, how does it happen that the telegraphio service is alien to it and must be handed over to individual or corpo rate greed? And If the Government Is compa tent to manage tho Post Oltice Department with admirable efficiency and economy, so that the people, even to the remotest frontier of the coun try, are well served, why can It not also manage a telegraph department with equal success, and thereby benefit tbe public still more? The oppo nents of the measure have never answered these simple questions, and for the reason tLat they have nothing to answer them with. FERNAXDO WOOL'S PROSPECTS. The New York correspondent of a Western paper thus presents his reasons for thinking that Fernando Wood Is a possible Democratic candi date for the Presidency In 1879 : Perhaps you have never thought of Fernando Wood as a Presidential candidate of tbe Democ racy, lie will be heard of as such during the next two years. The mention of his name as the nominee for the Speakership ot the House has been the means of developing his extraordinary strength in the party. It u evident that ho can get the voice of the Southern Democrats for that place, and this Is a vote which will hereafter bo potent In the party's affairs. There Is unexpected encouragement to his side from the Western Democratic members elect, and it Is not without reason that his friends believe he can command the support of the victorious party of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania I mean support for the Speakership, lie Is a power among the managers of this city. Ills majorities for Con gress are always enormous, and it Is not worth any man's while to run against him. Though an unrepentant salary-grabber, ho was reelected for the sixth time last month by a greater ma jority than ever. It Is thirty-live years since he Orel appeared in Congress, which he has only lelt now and then to take other offices. These things naturally suggest other things, and his ancient adherents, pleased at the way his name has been elevated since tbe Democratic uhcaval, realizing the drawbacks to Tllden's Presidential candi dacy, and knowing that New York has no other man with such party strength as Wood has lately developed throughout the country, seo that his namo must head the ticket of 1578.
