Conkling Putting in the Opening Wedge
--How Morton's Influence was Nulli
fled-- Why Blaine Voted as He Did
Other Causes and Effects.
Correspondcnce PI idelphia Timn. {
A good many people in Washing
ton, and no doubt almost everybody
away from the Capital, were amazed
to see how little party leadership
amounted to among the Republicans
when they came to vote on the con
promise bill. Morton and Shormnan
rallied but two or three respecta)le
recruits. All the rest of their fac
tion was made up of the shabby
carpet-bag crowd from the South.
In the House Garfield, Hale and
Frye, who led the assault upon the
bill, had a better following, but it
was because when the measure got
to that body its success was assured,
and a lot of moral and political cow
ards thought it safer to vote against
it, so that if the commission should
not count in Hayes they could say
to their constituents that they had
washed their hands clean of the
doubtful business at the outset.
Two causes operated in the Sen
ate to nullify the influence of Mor
ton. The first was the belief that
the solid people of the country were
in favor of the bill That would not
alone have worked its passage, how
ever, for it was evident that the Re
publican politicians were everywhere j
opposed to it. The party newspa
per's were down on it. Every senator
got letters and dispatches by the
pocketful, from postmasters, revene
collectors and ofliceholders of all
othe. species, appealing to him to
hold the fort. But the conviction
was forced uipon all prudent minds
in th - body that holding the fort was
a very hazardous business when a
faction within the walls were seeking
to unbar the gates. The Republican
majority had disintegrated on the
question the question of the consti
tutional way to count the vote. Not
even the lash of party necessity could
hold it together.
Conkling it was who put in the
entering wedge. Before the holiday
he was morose and reticent. No
body could get a word from him on
the Presidential J uestion except
that he was looking into precedeuts.
He studied them so carefully that
he accumulated a whole arsenail of
weapons for use against the theory
that the President of the Senat has
the right to make the count and sort:
the good votes from the bad Early I
in this month he dropped his silent
manner and spent day after city in i
long argumentative private talks 1
with other senators. He was mak- i
ing converts to his view that no ,
such right existed. Ferry thought ]
t) )e.0 ito him j nd bring him around
to the then orthodox belief by pnt
ting him on the conference commit
tee instead of Logan, who resigned
to go to Illinois. This was a fatal
mistake. It gave Conkling just the
leverage he needed. He was no
longer. a single member. of the Son- l
ate, susp1ecte3d of disloyalty to his par
ty, b~ut one of the p~owerful Council
of Fourteen. He at once allied him-<
self with Edmnunds and between i
them they converted Frelinghunyson.
Thus thcy threwv Morton into the ri
diculous attitude of the one juror who
said that he ncycr saw eleven such -
stupid and obstinate men as his
associates were when they all refused ~
to give a verdict to his liking.
The scheme for pushing Hayes
into the Presidency in the face of
Democratic threats and lprotests had
its throat cut by Conkling. Some
sort of compromise became a party
necessity. It only needed six Re~
publicans to join Conkling, Edmnunds
and Frelinghuysen to bioik the
majority in the Senate. More than
that many were ready for the move
mont--not because they wanted an
alliance with the Democrats, they
were as good Rtepufblicanls as any
body, but thev could see more than
an inch before their noses, They ~
believed that it wvould ruin the
future of their party to put Hayes
in by force with only the color of
authority conferred by a disputedr
constitutional interpretation as to (
where the power lay to count the
Electoral votes. They had their own I]
interest besides to look after. Most
of them must be candidates for re
election two years hence, and if the
Republican party in the couintry i
went into bankruptcy it would be.1

partisans of the Morton school
rather liked this prospoot, but mvod.
orato men hesitated to rush into any
abyss they could not muL:taro. They
saw endless possibilities of evil
and no cortain good in the plan to
choke the Democrats into subinis
sion. There was still another con
sideration inclining thom to a con
prolise--a toleraLbly strong confi
dence in the legal validity of Hayes'
185 votes. A tribunal of a judicial
character would probably confirm his
claim, they thought. At least, his
chances would bo better than
MuBich wonlor is expressed that
Blaine did not act with this class of
sonators instead of with the Morton
faction. All the ex-Speaker did for
Morton was to cast a voto against
the bill, and that ho did with a show
o)f reluctance. Only the day before
hle said to some friends that lio
thought ho should support it. I
have no doubt that ho wanted it to
pass. All his interests lie in the di
rection of maintaining the strength
of the llepll)liCan party. They
would be better subserved by the
inu~maugration of Tilden than of
Hayes, unless the latter can go in
with a clear title. The bull-dozing
scheme of Mor ton would have proven
fatal to Blhmie's aspirations for the
Presidency. Why then did ho vote
against the bill ? Because lio knew
it was going to pass. Ho know, too,
that the active young Republican
politicians of the country, in whose
,,yes ha figures as the Napoleon of
American politics, were hostile to it,
regarding it, in an unreasoning way,
is a surrender. He had, therefore,
either to vote against it or run the
risk of losing the support of this
muinenso body-guard of devoted
partisans. If the commission seated
ilden these men would never havo
forgiven Blaine if his name had
ippeared on the aflirmative side of
the roll call. It was not statesman
ship to act as Blaine did, but it was
unquestionably politica' shrewdness.
The coal supply of England is a
nhief basis of her groatness, and the
British newspao)rs consequently
frequently discus. how long it will
probably last. In 1869 the subject
was fully investigated by the Coal
Comm issioners, apd they reported
hat her col measures at that time
entained 14(3;480 millions of tons.
l'his they estimated was a supply at
he lowest calculation sufli cient for
i0 years. Other estimates give
ier supply as sufficientj for over
1,200 years, but these figures are
)asetl on the belief that the annual
onsumulptio;n of coal will remain
tluost stationary. On the contrary
,his annual consumption is twenty
millions of tons more now than it
vas when the estimate was made.
-angland supplies coal for all the
vorld, Sending it even at times to this
ountry. Hundreds of ship loads of
oal go from British ports every
'oar to almost all parts of the
Ulan tic, Pacific and Indian oceans.
Plhe export to San Fran.irsco is
ite large. It is only recently that
he United States has begun com-.
>eting with England to any extent
a; a coal exporter, but wvith cheap
olour p)ossibilition of increasing
rado in this direction are very
go at.
A correspondent of the English
V~echanic insists that musical
ounds stimulate the growth of
ilants. He gives an instance in
oint. In a barren section of
~ortugal lho built a small conserva
ory, and endeavored' to cultivate
osos and other flowors under shel
cr, but, in Spite of i. pvecautions
adustry, they did not* lurish.
)ne day he took a harmoni' into
he groenshouse, and played' for
everal hours. The *practice lie
aintainedl for sover~al naonths, and
va surpriscd to sob a 'gradual but
apid recovery of health on-the p art
f his plants. He attributes their
miprovemnits to the .influence of
rmsic, and unfolds the theory that
ho singing of birds is conducive
'getab~le life.
