MINERAL POINT TRIBUNE.
BAI CRD AY, JAJ I, Must Pay Up. Last Tuesday the supreme COUJT j of this state handed down an opin-j ion sustaining the decision < f Judge Newman, in lower court, to the j efl< :l that ex-slate treasurers lim-t cover into the treasury all inleiesl money on stall funds held by li‘t;m. It surprised many, and cauoed great joy among Deumcratg, ahbough it ■ oucceos, even though the present Democratic administration < .rued through, in accordance with a plunk in their platform of two years age, which was only a duplicate of a plank in the Republican platform adopted a few weeks previous. The credit for doing the work v inust, however, be conceded them. The decision will impose a great, hardship upon the ex-treasurers, tak ing from them what, they supposed they rightfully possessed, wrecking them, it is thought, financially, possibly physically and perhaps mentally. In taking the interest they simply followed a custom as old as the Skate. The decision of the court therefore casts no reflect ion upon the personal integrity of these men, hut is only the settlement of a disputed question of law for this stale. The same question has been decided differently hy another court in another slate. It the decision be carried to its fullest meaning and against all ex treasurers involved, the stale funds will be increased in tbe neighbor hood id three-quarters of a million dollars. Certain it is, an erroneous custom follow id notonly hy state treasurers, but county, city and town, in many instances, lias received a black eye, as it should. WASHINGTON I.ETTER. From our reguliir oorwstsaident. Washikotos, U. Jimmiry It, 181111. Senator (Jorman’s scheme for ob taining control of the U, S. Senate, and for the wiping out of every vestige of federal supervision of National elections, by means of a corrupt bargain with the populists, is, according (o the information received by piominent Republicans, among them cl .iiiman inter, who was in \\ Hshingtoti last week, in a fail way to succeed. The Republi can Senator might have outbid Dor man in concessions to the financial and other crank ideas of the popn lists, but no Republican Senator was willing to retain control ol the Semite on any such terms. The Republican parly has given this tinuntry the best financial system u bus ever hud, although it fully recognizes the fact that perfection lias not yet been reached, and it* leaders are not willing to leave a slain upon the party's bright record in the pages of history by being panics to any compromise with the isms of the populists. The Demo crats have no such scruples—they never knew the meaning of the word—ami Senator Gorman, with tbe approval of the so-called prophet of ictorin, Mr, Grover Cleveland, has been bargaining with those who claim to be able to dispose in ad vance of the populist Senators votes. Most Republicans will agree with the leaders of the,,uy that it is better to lose control of the Senate than to retain it by the loss of self-respect, which would neces sarily have followed any concessions made to the populists. Mr. Cleveland’s latest pronuncia mento, made through his faithful and confidential friend, Dan Lament, may prove to be a boomerang. It has upset the calculations of lots of Democratic Senators and Repre sentatives who opposed Mr. Cleve land’s nomination, as to patronage under the coming administration, for it says in unmistakable language, although not in these precise words, that Mr. Cleveland proposes taking can of those who favored his nomination first, last and all the time, and that he will not bother his head about the Democrats who opposed iiis nomination. If he lives up to this announcement he will find himself in Andy Johnson’s pre dicament before bis administration is one year old, for it is well known that more than a majority of the Democratic Senators and Repre- sentatives were openly opposed to Mr. Cleveland'* nomination, and that the number who openly ad vi.oiled ids nomination was ridiuu-! ion.sly small. .Senator Chandler succeeded in displacing the anti-option bill for two days with the bills reported from the committees on Inaugura tion and on Epidemic Diseases, relating to ti e danger of the intro duction of cholera into the United i .States, although Senator Washburn, while granting the importance of the two bills mentioned, stoutly maintained that bis anti-option bill was even more important and should first he disposed of. Kentuckians in Congress are so certain that Senator Carlisle has accepted the portfolio of Secretary of tin Treasury, which was recently tendered to him by .Mr. Cleveland, that they are discussing the proba bilities of who will succeed him in the Senate. If it be fair to judge by their actions the Democrats wish to con tine the li-c(station of this session ef Congress to passing the regular appropi lation bills, and Lave adopted as the best plan lo bring about that result, keeping the House without a quorum. At any rale the House lias been without a quorum since the reassembling of Congress. Senator Hill seldom displays his feelings to the extent that be has since Ins return from Albany, where he went to see that all parts of his machine, winch is to elect brewer Murphy to the U. S. Senate, was in good working order, lie fairly In-iuns with satisfaction over the situation. Mr. Cleveland opened the fight on him, in what ho regards as an entirely uncalled for manner, and he says that when the Demo cratic caucus of Uie New York legislature meets next Tuesday only seven Democrats will vote against Murphy, and they were on record as opposing him before Mr. Cleve land came out against him. Ttie Cleveland Democrats now shame faeedlv claim that Mr. Cleveland never expected lo defeat Murphy, and that he his done nothing be yond expressing his own person il opposition to him. When this story was told to Senator Hill he smiled knowingly, a* much as to say, 1 tell that to the Marines.” Avery broad smile passed around the House and the galleries when Representative Clover, of Kansas, who is now being sued for a di voice hy hit: wife, presented a petition from Mrs. Nathalie I’ollard asking that a law be enacted abol ishing divorce in the District of (' ilumbia, the Territories, and other places over which Congress has legislative control. Mr. Clover was about the only man present who dni not smile. Something New. Kerosene Healing Stoves at Eden & lilewett’s—the Chicago and the Grand. No smoke, no emv.l, no stove pipes to bother.
