Mineral Point, Friday, Dec. 18, 1878. 00. Crawford. Eobt. M. Crawford* KDITOnS AND I’UOPRIKTORS. Governor Lucius Robinson and Justice Sanford E. Church, of New York, have signed the memorial asking congress to adopt Senator Bayard’s joint resolution repealing the compulsory legal tender power now given the treasury notes of the United States. Mr. Tilden approves of the resolution but refuses to sign the memorial on the ground that he never signed a memorial to con gress in his life. For men accused of being bour bons, never learning anything and never forgetting anything, the Dem ocrats of Maine have made good progress in the returning board lessons taught them by the Repub licans in 1870. The recent canvass of the votes cast at the late election in that State has played sad havoc with the reported victory for the Republicans. The House will stand 78 fusionsists, (II republicans and 12 vacancies. The Senate 20 fusion ists and 11 republicans. The fu sionists will also elect the governor. If thn Republicans were over united <in the money |iioHiin, tin-y am uni tod no longer. Tim propo sition to deprive the recnhacks of their legal tender quality him di vided them wonderfully. A few stalwarts are consistent with their former hard money pretensions, and demand the wiping out of the pres ent lawn on thin Huhjeet. Hut a great majority of them, including ninny who throe months ago would have feared to brush garments with greenlmekmu lest theymight become contaminated, come out squarely in opposition to the repeal of the legal tender clause, and defend it. thereby becoming ns veritable (iat ib as any National ever dare he. lion. K. \V. Keyes and Mlihn Enos have gone to Wiudiinglon to appear before the national republi can committee in ihe interest of Chicago uh the place in which to hold the national convention. lly the way, we observe that < ieu. Ha/.- elton has permitted himself to nay that Enos would make a hint-rate elmirman of the eommittee. We hardly imderHtuml why i lu/.eltoii should suggest, the name of an out and out Keyes man for preferment. George, it will he remembered, is a candidate for the United Stales Senate, and “don't you forget it.”- Madison Democrat. Though it is certain he can he nominated, and equally certain be nan ho elected if nominated, Horatio Seymour still emphatically refuses to allow' his name to he used be fore the democratic national con vention. Ho is the only man in the United States who can he elect ed president that cures nothing for the oflleu, It is said by designing, sincere politicians that Grant is the greatest living American. Ho is not. Horatio Seymour is entitled to that glory. The honor of the presidency is tendered him and he declines it. It is not offered Grant, and he seeks it. That is the difference be tween the two men. Dubuque Herald. Leadvine's Room. One year ago lauidvillo contained only fifteen hundred people; and was even then a “roaring camp.” To-day it contains thirty thousand people, and counting outlying camps, ten thousand more depend ent upon Leudville for supplies. It Ims water works already established; gas works just completed; street railways chartered; a telephone company's wires already up, with connections to all the leading mines, reduction works, and busi ness offices in general, four hanks, thirty-live smelting and sampling works, and thirty saw mills, in and about the camps; one hundred and forty-seven lawyers, fifty doctors, thirteen livery stables, ten dry poods stores, the largest carrying a stock worth SBO,(AK), groceries and other business being proportionately rep resented. There arc one hundred and eight gambling and club houses, which are never found except where money is very plentiful. I.eadvillc is a “ boom ” all by itself. The Census.
