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

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.

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
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
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

THE GOVERNMENT AND TUE TELE
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.
