THE KATIOSAL REPUBLICAN HAS A
LARGER CIRCULATION THAN AKT OTHER
XORSISO PAPER IS THE DISTRICT OP CO
LUMBIA. TUESDAY MOKNINO:::s:::JANOABr M. 1ST?.
"The Reconstruction Siiam" is what
the Louisville Courier-Journal calls it. If
there was less sham loyalty in the South,
the reconstruction oT that section would
now be a decided success. But the truth
is, no law passed by a Republican Congress
will ever be accepted by the Southern white
malcontents in good faith, and the sham
which really exists is to be found in their
pretended submission to a condition of af
fairs with which they are really at war.
When the General Government becomes
strong enough to protect the majorityof its
citizens in the exercise of their constitu
tional rights, it will be discovered that, as
we have said, reconstruction is a decided
success; but not till then.
We print in another column, this morn
ing, an extract from the Evening Star com
mending the pissage of the Southern Mary
land railroad bill, introduced In the House
yesterday, and take this occasion to cor
dially indorse all that our cotemporary has
said on the subject. This is a measure the
practicability and necessity of w"hich is sat
isfactorily demonstrated by the reports of
competent engineers and the existing ice
bound condition of river transportation.
Congress evidently expects to collect large
amounts of taxes from the District, and in
return therefor it can do no better than to
enable us to pay those taxes by enhancing
the value of District property and devel
oping every available resource to sustain
and advance our business prosperity. Let
the bill be passed without delay.
Each succeeding day develops the wis
dom of the course pursued by tho Southern
Republican members of Congress. It is
true that recent events have aided them in
assuming the determined position they now
occupy; but it is also true that, if they had
not assumed such a position, the force of
those results would have been wasted.
With each recurring caucus discussion of
the situation, the necessity that something
shall be done to retain or regain for the
party the one hundred and thirty-eight
electoral votes cast by theSouthern States,
becomes more apparent. In fact, the im
portance of the Southern wing of the party,
as an integral part of the whole and a
necessary element to success, is being as
serted now for the first time. Heretofore,
since the days of reconstruction, the South
ern Republican members of both Hoasts
have satisfied themselves with a course
calculated to strengthen the party in tho
Korth, and have not demanded attention
to the pressing political needs of their own
section. Now that they have taken a firm
stand, however, there is a fair prospect
that their demands will be acceded to.
Tub senior editor of the Daily Chronicle
and the editor of the Sunday Herald, of
this city, denv the imputation of having re
ceived any of the Pacific Mail corruption
fund, either while serving the public in an
official capacity or as journalists. We con
gratulate them that they are able to make
this statement, and give them the benefit
of a wider circulation than they could
otherwise reach, by printing this explana
tion in our columns. In this connection,
the following, from the managing editor of
the defunct Patriot, will be read with in
terest :
Waui.gtox City, Jan. 3, 1S7S.
To the Editor of The Rational Republican:
Sib : I observe that Mr. Irwin, In his
testimony LeTore the Ways and Means Com
mittee, makes the btatement that he paid
91,500 to sundry newspapers, in this city, for
editorials and similar services, among them
the ratriot, of which, at that very time, the
undersigned was the managing editor.
If money w as paid to the ratriot (or its in
fluence, (which I do not believe,) I certainly
received none of it. I cannot recall a single
editorial published in favor of the Pacific Mail
subsidy. But if money was paid, the public
ought to know iclio received It; for to state
simply that it was paid to the Po(rio(, is, to
say the least, somewhat vague. Would it not
be well for the committee to investigate Mr.
Irwin as to who was the recipient ? Let us
have some light on the subject.
Very respectfully,
Louis Bagoeb.
Representative Kellooo, of Connec
ticut, chairman of the House Committee on
Reform in the Civil Service, proposes to
introduce to-day a bill for the reorganiza
tion of the Treasury Department. The
committee has been maturing this bill for
over a year, and its provisions are the re
sult of a thorough and earnest investiga
tion into the workings of the Department
which the bill is intended to reorganize.
Secretary Bristow and the heads of the
bureaus of the Treasury are in favor of the
measure, and as under the new order ol
things which Mr. Kellogg intends to intro
duce the annual appropriation for the ex
penses of the Department will be some
thousands of dollars less than the amount
now required, the Committee on Reform
in the Civil Service fell confident of the
favorable action of Congress on the meas
ure. As economy is now the order of the
day, the foct that unde. this bill the annual
expense; of the Department will be less
ened will of itself go a great way in the
minds of most members as a reason for its
prompt passage. Apart, however, from
this economical reason the bill fixes the
proper status of many officials about whose
authority and compensation there is a dis
cussion whenever the appropriation for
the Treasury Department comes up before
the House and Senate.
THE LIST 07 BECBEAHTS.
When the question came up in the House
yesterday, upon a motion for a suspension
of the rules by Mr. Butler, of Massachu
setts, by which the civil rights bill, a great
Republican measure, could be considered
at all without being controlled by the fili
bustering motions of the Democrats, and as
it might be by one fifth of the House, who
could call, the yeas and nays, it was de
featedyeas 147, nays 93. That the coun
try may see exactly who is responsible for
the defeat, we give the list of Republicans
absent and not voting being thirty-seven
and also a list of the Republicans voting
with the Democrats in the negative, by
which it will be seen that, with a single
exception of Mr. Page, of California, all
were from Southern States. If the South
ern Republicans hnd stood true to the col
ored constituencies, without whose votes
they could not have been elected, the ques
tion would have been carried; or, if in spite
of their defection the other Republicans
had been in their places, as they ought to
have been, with the exception of some few
absent on committees, the measure would
not have been lost
It would now seem as if there were no
hope of a Republican majority controlling
the legislation of the House, and the session
will be wasted in filibustering motions and
passing small jobs for individual members.
No great Republican measure, perhaps not
even the army appropriation bill, can be
carried without a change of the rules it
certainly cannot without a suspension of
the rules.
This record should be carefully studied
by every Republican in tho country, espe
cially the oppressed Republicans of the
Southern States :

A STRAIT GE BLTTBD2B.
Let us examine carefully the composition
of the so-called Southern Outrage Commit
tee, to which was referred that portion of
the President's message relating to the dis
turbed condition of afiairs in that section.
We begin with Messrs. Potter and Mar
shall, both of whom are earnest Democrats,
and neither of whom would entertain, for
a moment, any idea of treachery to their
party, or of yielding even equal justice as
between the interests of the two parties
when the influence of party bias is upon
them. Clearly they are inimical to the
President, to his Southern policy and to the
success of the Republican party. Next on
the list, beginning from the same end, wc
find Mr. William Walter Phelps, of New
Jersey, and Mr. Charles Foster, of Ohio,
both of whom are Republican in name
only, and both of whom have proved their
treachery to party principles, to party
friends and to the policy which car; alone
secure the success of tho party. Clearly
they are also inimical to the President, to
his Southern policy and to the success of
the Republican party. As the committee
is comprised of seven members, it appears,
from this explanation, that the four gentle
men named, a clear and decisive majority,
will be able, if they combine, as they evi
dently will, to overcome the conclusions
reached by the remaining members
Messrs. Hoar, Wheeler and Frye. Of
course, the selection of such a commit
tee was an error a blunder, of which
many a man leu sagacious than Mr.
Speaker Blaine might have been guilty
but it is a mistake from the effects of which
it is not impossible to recover. The House
will have it in its power, when the facts
are reported by that portion of the commit
tee now in New Orleans, to act advisedly,
regardless of the evident partisan reports of
the majority of this truly-named "outrage
committee." At the same time it will be
advised regarding afiairs as they exist in
other Southern States by reports from the
Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas commit
tees, and from the information embraced in
the reliable reports furnished by such compe
tent conservative and unprejudiced officers
of the army as Major General McDowell and
equally reliable officials of the civil branch
of the Government service. With this ex
plicit intelligence as the basis of its action,
there will be no excuse if the House tails
to recover from the effect of the blunder to
which we refer. In the meantime, it will
be the part of discretion to abstain from
intimations that the selection of the Louis
iana committee was intended to cast dis
credit upon the Southern policy of the Ad
ministration or as discourteous to the Pres
ident himself. Let us treat it as an error
of which the author is now as regretful as
the most earnest well-wisher of the party,
or as the most earnest opponent of the
State rights secession clement of the South.
THE PAILUEE IK THE HOUSE YESTEBD AY.
Yesterday an attempt was made by more
than three lourths of the Republican mem
bers of the House of Representatives to
suspend the two-thirds rule in relation to
important measures, and the attempt was
defeated, not by Democrats, but by men
professing to be Republicans, and who arc
here by Republican votes to represent the
policy of the Republican party and aid in
maintaining its supremacy. Men have a
right, in some instances, to vote as they
please; but in the discharge of a public
duty, where they are acting in a representa
tive character, they should reflect the will
of their constituents and not their own nar
row, bigoted views. When the time ar
rives that one actlngpurely in a representa
tive capacity cannot support or advocate
the views of his constituents he should re
turn to them the power with which they
have clothed him, instead of following the
bent of a pig-headed inclination under the
belief he is acting the part of independence,
when in fact the indulgence in egotistical
stupidity only makes him a female servant
in a Democratic household.
The slave power of the South and the
doughfaced Democracy of the North, be
lieving that the hand of manifest destiny
pointed to the loss of political power,
adopted the present two-third rule to the
end that a minority could impede the ordi
nary legislation of the country at a time
when they could no longer control it We
had well hoped that the doughfaces of the
House would be confined to the Democratic
party proper, but the vote of yesterday dis
closes the tact that as wise and astuto per
sons as wc are are sometimes mistaken.
The defeat of the attempt to suspend, judg
ing from the character and class of names
found voting with the Democracy, in all
probability grows out of the fear that the
civil rights bill would be brought forward
and pressed upon the attention of the
House. Thero are matters of more impor
tance than the civil rights bill to the Re
publican party that will find their final rest
ing place unless the rule is suspended.
- While we insist that the civil rights bill
shall be disposed of one way or another
very soon, we think the friends of the
measure should not press it to such an ex
tent as to nightmare our buttermilk senti
mental Republicans. Respectability and
indigestion in this country usually go hand
in hand, and it would not be amiss for tho
friends of the bill to bear this in mind. To
one troubled with indigestion there is noth
ing that so startles him as a feast. Nor Is
there anything that so startles the respect
able codfish of this day and generation as
to make him sit in the same car with a ne
gro, or inform him that when he dies they
will have to be buried in the same God's
acre lot.
The exigency of the times docs not de
mand the passage of a civil-rights bill with
anything like tho zeal it did two years ago.
We have talked with Southern white men
and Southern black men on this subject, and
they all agree in saying, that in the present
temper of the Democratic White Leaguers
of the South, instead of being a benefit
to the colored man, it would be a cause of
irritation and one that would lead to vio
lence and intimidation, that docs not now
exist in any one of the Southern States.
What the colored people of the South, and
what the Republicans of the South need now,
is not so much the right to ride in the cars, or
to be buried in the samo grave-yards, but
is the right to lice, and around this right
they want the protection of the law thrown,
and not only this but the enforcement
of the law as a terror to evil doers.
There was a time in the history of
tho South when colored men and
white Republicans talked of certain civil
rights, which they regarded as essential to
the proper enjoyment of life, but that day
has passed for the present, and they want
some policy perfected and enforced that
will protect life. After this has been ac
complished, it will then be time enough to
think of those matters which pertain to its
enjoyment.
We know of but one way by which the
Gordian knot can be cut, and that is for the
Speaker, who is chairman of the Commit
tee on Rules, to call his committee together
and report a substitute for the present two
third rule. This done, and the decks aie
cleared for action, and the Democracy and
their doughfaced allies can then go on with
their flirtation without it any manner jeop
ardizing the interests of tho party or those
of the nation. The vote of yesterday, and
the unanimity of Republicans in support of
the suspension of the rule, must clearly
have indicated to Speaker Blaine what a
majority of the Republicans in Congress
wont, and it is believed to bo certain he will
not lend himself to defeat the will of three
fourths of the Republicans in the House.
A QUESTION OF PEIVTLEOE.
Whitelaw Reid uses his position as a
journalist to malign Governor Shepherd.
Governor Shepherd appeals to the law and
says in substance: If these charges are true
let Mr. Reid retain the confidence of tho
people who now believe him an honest
man, andletmesuffernot, as now, the unjust
suspicion of men who do not know me,
because of the broadcast falsehoods of this
venal journalist; but let there come upon
me the deliberate contempt and ignominy
that shall ensue the sustaining of these
charges by a verdict of my countrymen.
If, however, it be shown that Mr. Reid
has been guilty of oft-repeated mendacity,
of the continued slander of my good name,
let him be punished, and made to pay for It.
Wc ask every man who reads this, Is that
a just demand? We ask Mr. W. W. Cor
coran, an estimable gentleman, who backs
with his purse, which is heavy, and with
his influence, which is considerable, all the
men who attack Governor Shepherd we
ask this gentlemen, "who suffers as being
in bonds" with Reid, is not this the fair
thing?
It does not suit Mr. Reid, however, to
meet Mr. Shepherd before a jury of twelve
men, sworn to do justice between them. It
is claimed for him that he is privileged.
He came here, as did scores of other men,
to tell tho Committee of Ways and Means
what he did know, or perhaps what he did
not know, about the Pacific Mail subsidy.
He patronized the committee for awhile,
and then went about his business or his
pleasure. The "divinity that doth hedge
a king" is not apparent in him. At a guess
one would take him to be the editor of tho
Virginia Bottom-land Weekly, with the
reminiscences of five years' chills and fevers
on his lank form and yellow visage. He is
a citizen, like other men who are around
the equal before the law of other men, and
no more. He may go to New York when
he chooses if he has not lost his annual
pass or chooses to pay his fare. At least
this is what the average citizen would take
for granted. But it is a mistake. He is a
simple citizen no more ; he has been be
fore a Congressional committee, and privi
leges fence him round like quills upon a
porcupine. Like Mr. O'Grady In "Handy
Andy," "the sheriff's dead fornenst his
fence." Marshal Phillips is bound to servo
his writ upon any other man whom he sees
on Pennsylvania avenue, but must pause
before he hands papers to Mr. Reld,bectu3e
he is privileged.
In this view the question of privilege
becomes one of no little importance. The
Constitution of the United States privileges
members of Congress from arrest except
for treason, felony and breach of the peace
during the session and in going to and re
turning from the same, and privileges them
also from being questioned elsewhere for
words spoken in debate in cither House.
These are all the privileges, outside the
Legislative Chamber, which distinguish a
member of Congress from the human race,
or any other man. Representatives of
foreign Governments (not being citizens)
are privileged by international law. But,
with these exceptions, one will look in vain
for anything in our fundamental laws
which contravenes the basis principle of
American republicanism: "AU men are
equal before the law."
True, the necessary implication from the
clauses cf the Constitution which create
the several Departments of the Govern
ment lodges with each the power to deal
summarily (when promptness is essential)
with everybody and everything that pre
vents the full discbarge of the functions
assigned them by the organic law. But
manifestly as this power is essentially arbi
trary, it ought to be confined within the
narrowest of limits, and Used only when
no general law could be devised that would
serve tho samo purpose. All probable
cases should be provided for by written
law. Tho citizen would then know where
his rights were trenched upon by "privi
lege," and the courts could pass upon the
constitutionality of the laws by which
"privileges" were sanctioned and vindi
cated. No one can justly object to the privileges
of any branch of the Government Many
are tho prerogatives of tho sovereignty of
the American people. The mace of the
Houseof Representatives Is the sceptre of a
million-handed king. But all may justly
oppose the extension of privileges designed
only to secure tho safety, dignity and de
corum of the National Legislature to fur
ther private purposes to exempt men not
connected with Congress from the ordinary
process of the law or to come in between
the citizen and his right to vindicate his
reputation. Whitelaw Reid Is not a mem
ber of Congress. He was not when arrested
at the suit of Governor Shepherd a witness
before any committee. His connection
with the commlttco had been totally dis
solved, ample time had been afforded hint
to leave the District, and all good citizens
wished him out of it: but he chose to tarry
here to be wined and dined, and unless he
has more rights than the average American
citizen, he may tarry with us longer than
is agreeable to him, and that at the public
expense.
The attempt to Invoke in his case tho
Titan of privilege
' Beiemblei ocean Into tcmpeit wrought
To waft a feather."
Mr. Reid, if he have ono spark of manli
ness In him, will feel himself driven to fol
low the advice of the New York Eerald,
and drop the lion's skin which some mem
bers of tho committee have hung upon his
gaunt frame. Should he lean too much
upon Jib "prlvllego" he will soon find that
himself and his support are both broken
reeds.
A Government Which Americans Detest.
Tromthe Baltimore American,
Some statistics or the trade between Uabi and
the Atlantle seaports of the United Statei may
explain why there are a vast number of people la
this country who feel a very lively Interest In the
political aSatr: of the Island, and anticipate Its
future with deep concern. The figures are for
the yearlSTI, and have Jmt been made up at
Havana. DurlnetbeyearwebouzHt from Cuba
sugars, tobacco and other articles of export to tho
value of eighty-Ave millions of dollars, for which
we paid mostly In American gold. From Havana
alone the exports to this country were of the
value of twenty millions of dollars, of which
twelve millions were in sugar, and nearly all the
remainder In tobacco. But while we seat this
hvgesum of money toUuba, she purchased trout
the United States only nfteen million dollars'
worth or goods and products ol all kinds, learlnz
a balance of trade against us of seventy millions.
bo long as the present anarchy und misrule con
tinues on the Island thero Is no prospector our
sldoofthe ledger showing any better account,
and for that reason It would be a fortunate day
for us when any turn of the wheel would restore
peace to Cuba, no matter under what political
auspices, and open up a market for the manufac
tured articles which a busy and Industrious popu
lation would need and hare. As the situation
now stands, the United States lathe best cus
tomer Cuba has, and It Is American gold which
Is very largely paying for the maintenance of a
Government which Americans detest, and con
tributing to the support of a war which It would
be to our eventual Interest to have brought to a
speedy termination.
Slavery In Cnba.
From the Cincinnati Times.
Slavery is a question in which all civilised na
tions are still taking some Interest. Wewonld
like to see It abolished In Cuba, and as the Inde
pendent Bepubllc of Cuba Is pledged to free labor
that circumstance adds to the sympathy we
should otherwise feel for Cuban patriots, and In
creases our desire lor their ultimate and complete
success.
