Senator Wallce, of Peunsylvania,
has Introduced .a constitutioli amend
ment providing for the election of
President by Congressional distilets
instead-of by States. This is an effort
to remedy the eves of the present sys
lem, by which ton thousand votes in
New York decided thirty-five electoral
votes and the Presidential election.
Strange to say, neither Senator Wal
lace nor any one of the large number
who regard his amendment as a solu
4on of the problem, appear to have
,discovered an obvions objection, and
one of so serious a nature as to -utterly
defeat the proposed ends. So long as
the vote is cast by States, a certain
lxed territorial limit exists, and will
N exist as long as present Sate lines ;Ore
not changed. But the division of each
State into Congressional districts is
left to the whim of the Legislatnre,
and district lines may be altered every
year. More than this, all of the North
ern and many Soiuthern States are
gCrrymandered ill the interest of the
party in )wer in each State. Several
years ago it required 1lity thousand
Democratic maijority in New York,
twenty thousand each in Ohio and Inl
diana, ten thousand in New Jersey,
and Senator Wallace alone knows how
inany thousand in Pennsylvania, to
secure an equal division of Congress
men or members of the Legislature.
At the last election New Jersey went
for Hancock, and yet the Republicans
elected a*mnajority of the Congiessmuen.
This gerry.itandoriig would be still
Inore flagna1i' were the Presidential
election dependent upon it. Unless
Senator Wallace can ilnd ia way of ab
solitely fixing the territorial limit that
shall be the unit, his anmendient will
prove a first-class boomerang, result
ing in a still greater advantage to the
Republicans than ever.
A Higher Motive.
The Charlotte Observer reads a lec
ture to Southern Congressmeu on their
alleged want of independence, and
adds: "It is this very spirit and these
very men who have kept Kellogg in
the Senate. No man knows better
than Wade Hampton, for instance,
that Kellogg is not entitled to a seat
in Congress, unless it, be Kellogg hin
self, and yet he declines to assert him
self and incur the ill-will of a publi,;
press whici has had sone agreeable
things .to say about imii in the past. It
* was not by such met'hods that South
AIen Conuiresgmn wielded such powe~r
Now, we have no means of knowing
what motives promplt Senator Unmp
'toni to the course which be has taken
* ~ in this matter, together withi such tuen
as Bayard, Thurman and Lamar, but
on general ,principles we feel bound to
defend him from the charge .preireed
by the Observer'. So perfectly satis
factory a reason can ho .adduced for
.his course, that to charge an imnproper
* motive is unjust, if not ungencrous.
Kellogg is a knave of the purest water,
aud that he was not duily elected no
* ~ one .dispuntee. That the Constit ution
declares that the $enato is the judge
of the qualification and elction of its
memnbers, and under this p~rovision
the Seniate has solemnly enacted that
- Kellogg Is a duly elected Senator. Not
only was lie admitted on a primza(face
* title, but the committee on elections
mnade-a rep~ort in his favor and the
Senate took upi the ease on his merits
and confirmned the title. Tjo hold that.
the ease can be re-opened is to say that
every Senator can be hauled up every
* .day, and especially that the Senator
from Louisiana shall be a shuttlecock
betwveena the opposing factions. Pur
sue this theory to its logical result.
Unseat Kellogg between now and the
4th~ of March and seat a Democrat.
Tfhen~ assume that David Davis and
Mahono vote wvith the Riepublicanms
after the 4th of March and F'arlev or
Pendleton or Voorhees should die and
be succeedied by a Rlepuqlican. Tfhis
would ensure a Rtepuibiican majority
which would re-instate Kellogg, andl
substitute Corbin for Butler besid..
Thme bali once begun would keep on
rolling, and no one could prophesy
with certainty the compllexionl of th'e
Senate a mon01th ill advance, all be
cause of the p~reccdenlt that a Case after
hzavin;.: beeni otnce dlecided upon its
merits may be decided again.
Agai, layes was no more e'l(eted(
thani Kellogg. Yet Congress gave hmim
a title. And( as long as ti.u Senate
recognizes hia) es it. cannot but recog
nize Kellogi. Thbis is dreadfuilly hard
on Louisia n, but it is bet ter thait one
State shoula utler than that a prece
* dent be establishedl by whIch the will
ofany' number of States may be sub
* Taking those things into considera
* tion, we have no hesitancy in saving
that the course of Seniator lamuptoni
and others Is actuated, not, from fear,
but from wvhat they believe to be good
lawv and good policy.
More "Southern Claims."
A small claim of a hundr'ed and
thirty-six dollars presentedl by thle
wvidow of Lieutenant Page for pay due
himi by the United States Government
whein he resigned his comnmissioni and
-einnteredl the Confederate serv ice, has
lurnished material for another wrangle
-in Congress about Uebel claimns and
Southern rapacity. For once, there is
. soe merit in the Iladical howls. A
law exists on the statute book forfeit
Ing all pay due to army oflicers wvho
K .~enteredl tihe Confederateennymu, and we
cannot see any impro prlety in it. Not
withstanding this, Mrs. Page desired a
special bill, and the Radicals claimed,
with some justice for once, that it
might be the entering wedge for all
sorts of claims. During the wrangle,
Mr. Chittenden, a bitter Radical but
not a bad fellow, ol'red to pay the
old lady's claim out of his own pocket,
but Congressinan Goode averlted that
it must be paid by the government or
by nobody. Finally Sunset Cox joked
the House ito passing the claim,
What made the matter worse, a claim
for another widow, whose husband re
mained "loyal," has been left neglect
ed by the Democratic House for two
We do not see 'vhy the Democrats
peroist Ii sueh foolishness. They
hammer away at some miserable little
claim, and even if they pass it, It costs
them two or three Congressmen at the
next election. Southern Claims is the
.greatest bugbear of the Northern peo
pie. It touches their pockets, and
though they irtay become disgusted
with sectional appeals about the flag
.and the colored brother, they alwav
jump on the Radical side of the fenco
whein told that the South intends a
raid upon the.treasury,
It is all very well to talk about
Southern indepondence and equal
rights under the Constitution, and to
rail at our prudent members about be
ing weak in the knees, but thinking
men should have discovered ero this
that a.bluf' game doest't pay. The
Rude hold the cards on .na and every
bluf eunures to their advantage. The
Democrats plucked up an everlasting
amount of courage in the extra sos
Sion, and butted their heads again st the
stonewall with a foolhardiness that
should have satisfied their most exact
ing constituents. The result was that the
Independent vote took a panic and
fled bag and baggage into the Radical
camps in 1880.
Our representatives were not to
blame. They were .pushed into the
contest by clamorous coistituenits
many of whom denounced them its a
parcel of blockheads when the experi
ment proved a failure. As TE Naws
AND IIFRALD was Hot one of the clam
orers, it feels io delicacy now in criti
cising the mistake.
There are issues, grave Issues, issues
of right and honieANt y and justice, on
which a party can well aiford to be
beaten, but claims and petitions for
money cannot be included in the cate
gory. Democrats can well aflord to
let them severaly alone. The widow
Page, no doubt, sorely needed her
hundred and thirty-six dollars, but
other old ladies are in as needy cir
cuivmstances as she can possibly he, an(
the welfare of the party cannot be
hazarded for her benefit. Even if the
Radical demagogues in Coi ngress are
crafty knaves, they have a large famnily

a matter, therefore, of m'egrect that
Sout heru newspapers are still egginhg

dent counsels. Let our Representa
tives go oni quietly and peacef'ully un

Indepenen's in thme North, and thlen

vain to expect from persistence in a
game of blufY.

GREAT RATAIN AND TU BOERS.
Sketch of the IUse and Progress of the
When Great Britain, In hert gust for
empire, took possession of Cape Colo
ny, 1in the southern extremity of Afi
ca, she found a thrifty white popula
tion, emigrants fi'om lollaid and
their descendants, who had penetrated
those unknown latitudes and planted
prosperous coloiies. As the English
become stronger these Dutch farmers
or Boers, petletrated northward till
they crossed the Vaal River, aid here
settled. Each settler occupied several
thousand acres of nland, and with his
Ilocks mnd herds was a Jaw unto h1imii
self. No organized government pre
valled, and there was no one to en
force the law had there been aniy to
Several years ago a Dutch Reformed
clergyman of great. eloquence and zeal,
ilnmed Burgers, was called from Cape
Colony to become president of tie
Trans-Vaal Republic. Endeavoring
to wvork out reforms, he found two
factions were thereby created, the
Progressists and the 'Reactionists.
Trouble began by a refusal to pay a
War tax, caused byi a quarrel with the
nations, and then eveni the regular tax
was resisted. Three presidential can
didates come to the front-Burgers, for
r'e-election, Krger anid Joubert. Still

pr'esident1 fromu1 Cape Colony. In this
State of aimrchy England intervened
with speious p)r0omises. The dianmond
fields and gold Rminles in this part of
the world rendered ainexation desira
ble to the Blritish government. A half
milliio Coff'res becaic troublesome on
the borders, and beflore the Boers
knew what they were.about they had
agreed to annexation. Great Biritain
thets acquired territory larger thatt
France, without a drop of blood, and
at the cost of a million dollars in bad
debts of ile Republic.
So mnattel's rested until a few weeks
ago, when some delinquent taxpavere
resisted arrest and put the British po
lice to flight. With this as a pretext
the Boers rose in arms and surround
ed the British garrisons in the differ
ent quarters before help could come
from Cape Colony. This Is the ooidi
tion i1ow. These6 garrisons are be
leaguered, and a B3ritish force under
Sir George Colley, the "Von Moltke"
of Great Britain,sent to their relief
has beet relulsed with heavy loss, and
is himself on the defeiisive. If the
garrisons surrellder, as they are now
exlected to do, the Boors iIll be able
to secure soie artillery, of which they
now have noC at all.
All accounts concur that the Boers
are thoroughly armed and that the old
men. women and preachers are urging
themon into a desperate coniflict with
the invaders. The Boers are hardv
and active, expert marksmen and fine
horsemen, and tle)' can muster-sevCeral

Here, my buyer, in the strong, terse language of the West, has "struck

popular figures-ten cents.

My buyer on the floor of the great auction house of Field, Morrison
& Co. has just brought down the hammer on a big drive in Standard
Prints, worth eight cents, at the surprising figures of 6te.
The very small, dilapidated stock of these goods which the recent
cold snap left on my hands, 1 have determined to offer as a holocaust to
my "fetish," the'god of bargains.
Jeans, Cassimeres, Flannels and Dress Goods are the leaders of the

attention given every visitor, whether buyer or not.
