Tho phrase "precedents of a hundred
years'1 Is simply rhetoric Our fathers
know nothing of this modorn systom of
metaphysics whereby a man could he
present and absent at tho sanja moment;
could bo vlslhlo to domand his yeas and
nays and lnvlslhlo whon they ero
called. It did not occur to tholr slmplo
minds to glorify themselves for holiifr
silent, while, they folt It an Insult to
havo that sllenco potntod out. Thoy
thought that opposition meant voting
against a hill. Ilonco filibustering is of
modern origin. It had Its beginning as
a business In tho ltouso of llopresenta
lives at Washington. Thence It spread
all over tho country, until from ono end
of tho United States to tho other mere
Inertia had got to bo a match for both
ballots and brains. When filibustering
began, It took a wholo political party to
block business. In tho last Congress It
had ripened to such a degree, of Impos
sible perfection that ono man held tho
country at bay. The dootrlno of tho
' rights of tho minority ' .seemed to havo
culminated at that moment.
Hut tho trying time for all 111-dolng
Is the summit of prosperity. When Mr.
Tweed wanted to know "what you were
going to do about It," ho had challenged
both 'ho Ingenuity and the courage of
mankind; and from that tlmo it was
Tweed against tho world, and tho result
not doublfiil. Had filibustering con
fined Itself to tho House of Itepresenta
tlves or held Itself within hounds ol
leason It might havo flourished long and
had many defonders. It was a con
venient method of demanding debate,
of calling tho attention of tho country
to violent political measures, and do
served many of tho commendations It
then received. Hut when In lSS'J It
commonccd to bo the common method of
preventing a decision of election cases,
and finally In 1SS!) re-established tho
llborum veto of tho old Polish Diet,
whereby a slnglo mcmbor became tho
arbiter of destiny, every man of senso
recognized tho fact that tho practice
was doomed.
Moreover, filibustering went on grow
ing in tho direction of another disaster.
It reached tho State Legislatures, where
the people could seo It face to faco, it
camo down to municipalities and school
boards. It invaded oven tho assemblies
of tho churches, and rule 35 among tho
rules for judicatories adopted by tho
Presbyterian General Assembly of Penn
sylvania hoars witness alike of tho ovll
and its suppression when it declares
that "silent members'' "must bo consid
ered as acquiescing with tho majority,"
It is no wonder that the scheme of op
position by not voting spread so rapid
Iv. It Is so much easier to sit still than
to i' gue, so much more restful to uso
tti" utractlon of gravitation than to ex
1. i .t nervous energy, that It was not in
1, . r,-iii nature to rofraln from tho uso of
th s power, which had tho high sanc
tion of Congress and "tho precedents of
of a hundred years." liu't men never
r.-'-nain reasonably bad; they almost al
ways carry badness to excess, and there
fore to correction. And thus this schemo
of silence, which worked bo well in tho
distant atmosphere of tho National cap
ital, soon met its death when it got
down to tho regions of business. Wash
ington Is far away and only Httlo under
stood; but a man whose contract may bo
adjudged void and his business career
ruined by this doctrlno of corporeal
prcsenco and parliamentary absence
soon begins to understand ono placo
whero tho rights of minorities ought to
leavo off. Ilonco when municipal
ooalos oegan to imitate tliclr superiors,
and tried to break contracts as woll as
quorums, tho gladsomo light of juris
prudence was soon shed upon them, and
the parliamentary fiction that a man
present could truthfully declare himself
absent disappeared from every placo
except tho capitol at ashinglon.
It Is useless to clto tho debates of tho
constitutional convention. It Is truo
that they would romovo any shado of
doubt, if wo had any, but tho language
of the constitution leaves no room for
question. If by any chance thero Is not
a quorum, tho constitution provides a
way to get one. It is not by recording
those prosont as voting either yoa or
nay, but by making tho absent present.
It provides for tho supply of what is
lacking. That which was lacking was
a quorum. It supplies that lack by "at
tendance." Attcndanco alono was and
is necessary. Is it inconcnivablo that
our ancestors should havo tried to sup
ply by "attondaneo" a lack of aquorum
if they knew that "attendance" would
not supply tho lack? Why send for
men if that was not tho romcdy?
Along with this doctrlno of tho in
visibility of tho visible have coaio some
specious arguments which, by dint of
frequent repetition, havo taken on tho
importance of formulas or accepted
facts. Among theso is tho alleged duty
of tho majority to furnish a quorum.
Why should good Democrats, washing
their hands, Uko Pontius Pilate, of this
mattor, and desiring only tho qulot and
convenient seclusion of tholr own
scats, bo compelled to Submit to tho
oiitrago of being noticed in order en
able legislation to march? Lot tho ma
jority have their men here. Lot overy
Republican bo In his soat whero ho bo
longs, and thero would bo no trouble
Another specious form which this ar
gument sometimes takes is tho declara
tion that thoro aro great and solemn oc
casions whon tho minority should havo
tho right to demand a majority voto of
all thoso elected to mcmbc-shlp. Who
is to judge of theso solemn occasions?
Why, tho very gontlcmon whom our
Ooverrimcnt by majorities conclusively
nrosumo to bo wrong tho minority?
Why, said Mr. Mills, of Texas, this is in
tho constitution of this State, that State
and tho othor State, and theroforo Is
right. It would soom to an ordinary
constitutional lawyer as if tho fact that
It had to bo put intoothor constitutions,
and had not beon put Into purs, was con
clusive that It was not thero either by
Implication or design. It Is to bo hoped
that tho tlmo is far distant when any
body will oven proposo to put into tho
constitution of tho United States tho
crudocxpiesslons of distrust in tho rop
resoutatlies of tho peoplo which disfig
ure many of our Stato constitutions.
Whon men learn that tho truest foun
dation on which to build, porpetuato and
maintain a republlu Is confldonco in tho
wisdom of tho plain people, thoy will
ccaso to deprive them of power in order
to lodge It in tho hands of thofow whoso
only claim to wisdom and vlrtuo is tholr
paucity of numbers. When tho world
reauhos a real bcllot In government by
tho peoplo, wo shall find It tho Burost
safeguard of liberty and property; wo
shall find States better ruled and cities
bettor governed than by any of thoso de
vices which aro based on tho falso ldoa
that for tho government of all tho wis
dom of tho fow Is hotter than tho wis
dom of tho many. Thomas 11. Hood, (n

Tho junior Democratic organ in this
olty, tagging along bohlnd Sonator
Pasco, donles that thero Is any suppres
sion of tho colored voto In tho South,
and asserts that voters In proportion
ately equal numbers stay away from tho
polls, both at tho North and tho Mouth,
through slmplo lack of Interest,
The sections are not much unlike In their re
gard tor tho ballot. In both thero aro thousnnds
ot stnrnthomrs as well as unfailing voters. It
Is quite as Just to infer "suppression" In ono
caso as the other, Tho short vote ot both North
and Bouth U doubtless due to the name- cause
The full otc Is not east In the North bocause A
Croat many voter do not think It worth while
to go to tho polls, nnll It Ii not cast la tho South
for tho ame renon
Tho Inaccuracy of this assumption
will become npparont when a compari
son Is made of tho number of votes cast
In each Stato with tho total population.
Taking tho United States as a wholo
thero were oh tho avorago In 1850 0.3
persons men. Women and children

lowing tablo shows how widely Vio

Ono may ask with reason why tho
percentage ot voters to the total popula
tion should bo tho smallest In tho Gulf
States, where intimidation Is universal;
should increase In the border States,
whero bulldozing Is limited to certain
sections; and should reach Its highest
point In tho Northern Stales, whero
bulldozing Is unknown. It may bo said
in attempted reply that thero aro moro
malo adults In proportion to total popu
lation In tho Northern than tho South
ern States. This Is so owing to tho
largo foreign immigration a majority of
which is- composed of adults, many of
them not yet naturalized. Malos over
V.l constitute a little over 20 per cent, ot
the total population of Southern and 20
per cent, of that of Northern States.
This, however, modifies but slightly tho
figures given above and still leaves It
for Southern bulldozers and their do-
fenders to explain why thero should bo
twlco as many persons to a voter in
Georgia as in Illinois. Chicago Tribune

No assertion is more frequently
made by frco- raders than that tho
dilforenco between wages in this
country and in Kngland Is greatly
exaggerated in protection arguments
based on tho dilferenco of wages. Up
to 18S7 fow official statistics of wages
has beon collected In England, and by
comparing tho most favorable conditions
thoro and tho least favorable returns
here, nomo basis for tho charge could
often bo obtained.
Fortunately, Mr. GIffon, tho official
Govommont statistician, has just made
a report on tho different rate of textllo
wagos in Great lirltain. This report
gives, not tho actual wages, but tho
"wages of a normal week," without de
duction for sickness, shut-downs, slack
work or strikes, lho figures were col
lected last autumn, a most prosperous
season, whon all mills wore running at
a profit. They aro, In short, tho most
favorablo showing which can be made.
To roach tho actual wages at least 10
per cent, must bo deducted for sickness
and 5 per cent, moro for accidents and
tho mischances of trado and of life.
Tho avorago weekly rato of wages for
about 1103,000 operatives, as given bvMr.
Gllfen, aro as follows, a shilling being
reckoned at 2D cents, a slight o evaluation:
