The poisoning of twenty -seven chil Jren

economists limit the supply to one barrel.
Rhode Island disfranchises 10,000 citi-
tens on account of their nativity. They
have no voice at the elections for President,
Vice President or Representatives, and yet
her Senators and Representatives claim
that the nation can be defied in this way,
and Mr. Hayes docs not intimato that
"national supremacy" must ply the thumb
screws to make these wicked Rhode
Island Republicans do their "National
Duty" by admitting these 10,000 citizens to
the right of suffrage.

According to the Railway World nearly
four hundred thousand persons a'ro em

five times that many depend upon the roads
for support. It is also estimated that be
tween 1300,000,000 and $400,000,000 tire
annually paid to employes and to persons
who furnish the companies with supplies
of various kinds. This vast business has
sprang up in the lifetime of one genera
ticHL.and is still rapid. What another
quarter of a century will develop in this
field would doubtless seoui fabulous could
it now be foretold.

months of the year suggests an opportunity
for profitable investment by a new company
organized to build and lease cars. At an
average of 2,060 miles per month, the
ordinary charge of three-quarters of a cent
per mile, besides repairs, would give curn

; Tfl onslaught on silver b a part of ur
. circulating medium, lm been u persistent
"and unrelenting one, and will never cctue
while tlulwnd-h'olding aristocrats who die-
tail tiro ' platforms of the Republican party.
jtetet goU to "tho dollars of our fathers,"
' Tho first act of that rurtv in this causeless
onslaught, was to debase that coin, by tak
lng from i its legal tender qualities. The
Democrats came into power, and restored
it. It was then" carricaturcd in Republi
can pictorials as tiie 84 cent piece that was
made to serve the uses of a dollar; and its
use in the payment of debts was stigma
tized as "repudiation" its valuo being
determined by the market valuo of bullion
without allowing one dent to cover the cost
of coinage. But Warner his wiped out this
objection by providing that the depositor of
bullion at tho mint shall bo charged, as an
expense for coinage, a sum equal to tho
difference in the market 'value of tho bul
lion and of the dollars. "The weight of
dollars!" The coinage should be limited
because, in the estimation of tho million
aire Sherman, wealth in that shape woulJ
prove too heavy! Poor men the great
mass of tho people have no complaints to
offer on that score. They have no lame
backs that they are disposed to ascribe to
tho weight of their money bags; yet, to
meet that objection the Warner bill pro
vides that the individual who counts bis
money by the hundred weight, caa cart it
to tho U. S. Treasury and deposit it there
in exchange for certificates. These certifi
cates stand upon the same footing as green
backs, circulate the same, and are redeem
able in coin. And now, with all these ob
jections up-tripped, why is it that the right
against the "dollar of the dads" is main
tained, unless a purpose exists to make
gold, alone, the coin of the country? If
there is any other or better reason, it lurks
below the surface, and men of ordinary
scope of vision "can't see it."
Of the Grant movement the New York
Herald speukB as follows: "Three months
ago there was a formidable current ol pub
lic sentiment in favor of Grant's renomina
tion. That ready instinct by which prac
ticed journalists discern what is moving in
the popular mind convinced us that there
was strength in the new Grant movement,
but we took pains to verify 6ur intuitions
belore proclaiming them to the public.
About midwinter, through our correpond-
ents, we interviewed nearlyall the members
of Congress, ot both parties, and
published verbatim reports of what
they said. We found that the opinion was
universal among the Democratic members
and very general among the Republican
members that General Grant was the predes
tined Republican candidate lor the Presi
dency in 1880. It would have been absurd
for us to undeivalue a movement which
was thus attested. But the Herald was not
alone in this field of inquiry. A month
or two after the publication of our inter
views, the Times, a Republican contempor
ary which had looked with disfavor on
General Grant, sent correspondents into
every State of tho Union to gather Repub
lican sentiment us to his nomination. The
reports with which it nearly rilled one of
its issues showed an almost . overwhelming
preponderance of Republican sentiment in I
favor of running General Grant in 1880. In
such a State of facts, supported by such an
accumulation of evidence it would
have been mere stupidity, or mere
puerility, for tho Herald to have ignored
thos) significant signs of the times. We
did not feel at liberty to drop and ignore
the subject out of deference to shallow
renders who expect u public journal to be a
mere kaleidoscope of entertaining novelties.
Tho stability of our free institutions seemed
in jeopardy, and it was a higher duty to in
struct our readers than to amuse them. It
has happened to bo one of those cases in
which the exposure of a danger is the must
effective means of warding it off. We
believe the Grant movement has been bro
ken and shattered by the publicity which
has been given it. The Herald would have
failed in its duty if it had not made the
exposure. We expect without resentment
the comments of flippant people who have
a constitutional incapacity to appreciate
great public questions.
In the presidential contest of 1880 tho
Soutli will give her electoral votes, to the
Democratic candidate. This is now con
ceded by everybody who is willing to ac
knowledge tho inevitable. Tho votes will
be given to the Democratic candidate, with
out contention, unless, by force of arms,
tho stalwarts reverse tho decision of tho peo
ple. All the probabilities, therefore, point
very directly to the concluson that the
great battle of nextyear, will bo fought
on the Northern soil. And how is the
contest likely to terminato? An able con
temporary canvassing tho probability, says
that the Democrats, with prudent behavior
hereafter anil the nomination of a con
servative anti-slavery man like Tilden, Pal
mer, Davis, or ,; Field, cannot fail of
success cersi'uly they can not fail against
Grant with all tho shameful and odious
features of a canvass in Ids behalf. The ob
jection which has really jliurt Mr. Tilden is
that he was once elected president and did
not take tho office. But how was he to take it
when Coriirress, with the assent of many
Southern Representatives, declared Hayes
elected? Whether Mr! Tilden mado any
serious attempt to stump out the iniquitou

DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN:
, we do not pretend to say. But wo do most
emphatically soy that tho Constitution laid
upon Congress the 'duty of determining tho
electoral question according to tho law and
tho facts; and members cannot plead thoir
own imbecility in extenuation of the offense
they committed in leaving undone the
things they should have done. The respon
sibility was upon them, and they were
sworn to discharge it properly. Mr. Tilden
had legally nothing to do with it; and the
stream of Congressmen pouring over here
for direction in the performance of a plain
duty was a disgrace to the party and to the
country. The men who bitterly criticise
Mr. Tilden for not imparting wisdom and
courage to a Congress conspicuously de
void of theso qualities, torget that Thur
man and Bayard, who were then and arc
still his rivals, had concocted, the infamous
electoral scheme and torced it down the
gagging throats ot the House Committee
before Mr. Tilden ever heard of it.
