There it tome talk of ibe pcooral aa-
eembly adjourning soon not tine die, but
with iew to meeting again next winter.
If oar representatives will take into con
sideration Iho Teelings of tlieir cunslitu
cnta on this point, tlicjr will oppote any
nch thing as an extra session ol the leg
latnre; tbo people arc opposed to extra,
when the cost is so great. Retrench
ment is now tbeir watchword. It i on
this grouod that tbe moat strenuous oppo
sition to a constitutional convention is
based not that our ragged concern can't
he bettered, for we all know it can; but
in our prctcnt financial condition, it may
be tolerated for awhile longer by making
few more amendments. What the
massos want now is, for the representa
tives to rush business at the capital and
cet through with it. The snail-gait that
has characterized the general assembly
the present eeision is not in accordance
with their ideas of retrenchment. Much
time has been spent, while but little work
has been accomplished, aud 63 far as we
have notiucd no very important mutters
seem to ocdupy the attention of our
stolons. If there aro at.y, let tbera be
attended to immediately, and questions
of minor importance postponed, if neces
sary, for the next legislature to worry
over, lietter prolong th present session
a few days than incur the expenses of an
extra one nuxt winter, with mileage for
another journey to Jefferson and home
thro wn lu. Settle yourselves to work,
gentlemen, and finish up, and let your
work be so perfected that it won't re
quire additional legislation to undo what
you may do.
A Man may Smile and be a Villain.
Poor "Sinilcr" Colfax I lie was so
blinded by the charge that ho was im
plicated in the Credit Mobilier specula
lions, and the statement of Ames that he
bad been paid a 81.200 dividend on his
atock of that wonderful ring within a
ring, that tho world swam before his
eyes, and he couldn't fee his way out of
the mist that enveloped him. Was it
strange, then, that he should 'jump out
of the frying pan into the Oro '(" Poor
"Smilcr," that last leap has scorched
him. lie has certainly nccountcd for his
bank deposit of 81,200 about the date
Ames says he paid him that amount in
dividends on his Credit Mobilier stock.
3lr. Nesbitt the gentleman is dead now
gave it to him; that is, l,e pavo him
51,000 of it. Further investigation has
proven that Mr, Neobitt gave him 81.000
at four different times, making 81,000,
which tho "Smilcr" said nothing about.
Mr. Colfax would havo us believe that
these were friendly gifts tho outpour
ings of a generous heart to tho man it
udmircd. It leaks out, though, that the
deceased Nehbitt and friend of Mr. Col
lax w is a "large sta ioner, and had heavy
contrucls with tho post-office department ;
that previous tj tho election of Collax to
rho epoakerbhip of tho lower branch of
Congress, when he was a member ol that
body, he was chairman of tbe bouse
post offico committee, and theroforo in a
position to perform valuablo service for
Mr. Nesbitt." Schuyler Colfax is Vice
President of the United States, be is a
Keutlemaa of high moral ideas, an ex
ample for tho members of the "Young
Men's Christian Association," ho is a
uper loyal Republican, and above all a
professed christian and pattern for the
youth of our coootry. He Bays he
didn't receive 81,200 from Ames, and of
oourso everybody bolievos him, although
Ames' little diary has it recorded against
biro. He would have us believe that the
81,000 ho received from his "friend"
.Nesbitt was a perfectly natural gift, but
doesn't mention tlio other 83,000. Of
oourso no ono doubts tho word of our
uhristian model, tho Vice Presidont. It
is troe, circumstantial evidence is against
him, and tbo more be explains himself
tho moro tho people don't understand
him, and tho more he bcooracs entangled
in tho network of his own weaving ; but
thou be says he is innocent. So has said
uanya criminal just beforo ho was bung.
Tho Credit Mobilier investigation com
mittee has made its report, and rccom
mends Hut Ames and .Brooks be x
polled, tno tirst because be is guilty of
Roiling atoolc ol the C. M. to members of
Congress, fot'tho purpose of iufluoucing
their votes. Now, if Ames sold this
stock to tho members, they arc aa guilty

through a glass darkly."
, There ie a atrong feeling in Congress
agnidst tho report of tho 0. M. com
mittee, end it is not likely Amee,.rooks,
i'f anybody elso will bo eipelled. It is
thought that tho report is loo harsh for
omo and too mild for others. That is
certainly tho caso, but can't tho honost
members eveo up this thing a little, and
rxpol Iho whole set of O. 31. gamblcra?

Wbilo ou general assembly is cogita
ting over the doubtful wisdom uf adjourn
ing at an early date and proviso? for an
extra session next inter, wo think it
would bo boiler and sounder jadgmcut on
its fart to cuacf, and that speedily, some
law by which the credit of our stato may
bo prcsnrvcd. With her vast resources,
Missouri is amply able to meet all her
indebtedness in the manner stipulated by
the fcc of her bond3, and tho act of the
Twenty. sixth general assembly, compel!
ing tbe stato creditors lo receive "legal
tender in payment on bonds which ei
plicitly stimulate that they shall be paid
in coin, is seriously damaging our Moan
cial standing among the capitalists of the
country. Well, what differenco doce
that make are not our taxpayers more
to be regarded and consulted than the
"bloated aristocracy?" It cannot be
denied that the taxpayers' interest
should bo cjnsluted in nlljinancial trans
actions of the state, but is it not a doubt
ful interest, to cay tho least, to impair
the credit of the state in the money mar
kct for the purpose of discreditably sav
ing tnem a few cents on their annual
taxation ?
Tho Auditor's report showj that dur
ing the next six years tho debt of the
state falling due amounts to seven millions
four hundred and tijcly four thousand dol
lars, and he says "that in order to meet
this amount it will be necessary to bor
row money. 1 tio bonds hold for this
largo sum of money expressly state that
they shall be paid in gold or silver.
Tho legislature in 1872, however, passed
an act over the Governor's vote, compell
ing the holders to receive legal tender
notes at par for them. Now, the nues
tion arises, If this policy is persisted in,
can tho state go into tbo money market
and borrow rxoncy to advantage to meet
tho indebtedness which falls due within
the next six years V It will be teen at a
glance that a state which ignore its con
tracts with its creditors cannot he relied
on by money lenders. If a contract is
entered into that tho bonds securing the
payment of borrowed money shall be paid
in gold or coin, the next legislature that
meets may disregard the obligation and
say, "here, we know tLese bonds call for
gold, but we aro only goiDg to pay you in
greenbacks." Tho precedent has been
set, and why may it not bo followed ?
The good credit of the stato is an in
terest of great importanco to tho tax
payers, so great that all its contracts
should bo literally complied with. Most
ot them can better afford to pay a few
cents more annually on their property,
than be rushed with a heavy taxation to
meet this seven million indebtedness
within six years, which would have to be
tho caso if the state could not borrow
tho money. Of course such a catastro
phe is not likely to occur, but unlets
something is done to assure our creditors,
tho state will havo to pay a larger rate
of intercut on the amount ho may have to
borrow, or give some other tccurity than
the face of the bonds, which may bo
ignored by a legislature at any time.
This is an important matter for tho pros
cnt legislature to consider. Repeal the
injudicious act passed by its predeces
sor, and rcstoro the state bonds to a gold
basis once moro. Then tho honor, as
well as tho credit of the state, will bo
saved. This is a duty wo owe ourselves
as a commonwealth, as well as our creuV
itors.
Sir. Headlee, the Republican member
of the senatorial investigating committee,
sinco tho last report was made, and
which was published with his uarao con
eurring, has mado a corro:tion, He still
thinks tho business of the co'mmitteo was
not thorough and complete, and his opin
ion expressed in his minority report is
unchanged. llo bcliovcs that if the
house had granted tho commitco counsel
in the investigation, ond tho investiga
tion had been thoroughly prosecuted,
that important ovidejico would hove been
brought to light that bos not been ob
tained. Whether Mr. Headlee makes
these assertions for tho purposo of man
ufacturing political capital is not clear ;
but one thing is clear, the Democrats have
done tbe party an injustice by not giving
Ihecommitto the largest license, sinco it
was demanded by their political oppo
nents. As tho matter stands thcro will
be an assumed, if not a real doubt in the
minds of many, especially Republicans.
Tho senato nt Jefferson City has passed
the bill making it misdemeanor, pun

more thin 8100, o imprisonment for not
more than six months, for any porson to

assembly with a deadly woapon on his
person. Tho occasion for this measuro
is tho too common habit in tho iuterior
ol making church aicotings and publio
meeting the opportunity for set Hneauar
rels, and of going armed to such places
s a preparation for offraya.

mado their teport lo day through Judgo

of tbe members implicated wero in tbeir
scats ; Ames was in front, and moots
ocsupied bis own seat. Tbo gallories
were crowded, and intense interest mani
fested throughout tho report
After rehearsing tho history of the
caso and the evidence received, tho cotn
mittco say that Ames intended lo enlist
friends in Congress by selling them
Credit Mobilier stock at par when it was
worlhdoublcthat sum. They quote from
Ames' letter to McComb iu support of
this opinion. Iho report also charges
him with attempting to affect legislation
in behalf of tho Pacific railroad.
As regards tho other members of the
House the conclusions aro ns follows :
Mr. Illnino did not take any stock.
Mr. Dawes got ten per eent. on his
money and then scttlod with Ames.
Mr. Scofield gavo up his Credit Mobi
lier stock, but kept his 81000 in the
Union Pacific. Nothing dcGnite in ro-
L-artl to his settlement with Ames could
be obta'innd.'
Mr. Ilmgh'am's connection consisted in
Ames rctainini! thirty shares for him and
