Hobbhll boasts that he has got $400,

John Roach who appeared before the
junketing tariff commission declared
liiineeli' ready to carry the "protection"
silliness to its logical conclusion. He
wauted every industry, "one and all,"
protected. That's it. Let us all get rich
by taxing ech other. If it is such a
blessed thing when partially applied,
why won't it be, if we go all around?
The Springfield Republican gives the
answer iu a nutohell to the whole hum
bug of the protective tarin argument
when it says : "Why should.there be the
constant boastinij about tbe superior
wages paid for American ltbor, when
those wages are fixed by ibe profitable
ness of agriculture on the great prairies
while the cost of living is materially en
hanced by the duties on all goods, fur
nitures, building stores and and all neces
saries of life ?"
Tne Work for the Legislature.
The earnestness and vigor wiiu which
our legislature starts off is due to tbe
fact that it has something before it on
which every man has formed opinions,
which is conceded to need attention, and
which every man is eager to take hold
of. Of course there is the usual rou
tine of little business, the screws will
be tightened a little In the. liquor laws,
the normal schools will get some atten
tion, and the fish and game lnw will be
tinkered ; but the attention of the state
as well as our representatives is almost
wholly absorbed upon two measures
the Judevine highway law, and the tax
law, As to the former, Intelligent sen'
timent is overwhelmingly in favor either
of its repeal or of some amendment
which shall require our roads to be kept
in repair. If the latter is adopted it will
require great ingenuity to frame an ade
quate measure. None has been propose
ed yet The difficulty with the law now
is tiie red tape with which it is endlessly
wound up.
It looks as if the tax law was to be
overhauled pretty thoroughly, and though
it needs some amendments, there is quite
as much danger that it will be hurt as
improved by the way it is being bandied,
Not lens than a half-dozen amendments
are already proposed. Lynde of Dura-
merston, Monday, introduced a bill pro
viding, in the case of wilful neglect of a
citizen to make out an iuventory, the
listers shall estimate his worth as best
they can, add the estimate to his visible
Drouertv. and then double both for
taxation. Woodard of Halifax pro
poses that the taxpayers' list in
previous years be the one that is taken
for doubling. Judge Thompson hasabiil
to cee allowing "offsets" agiinsl the
personal list or debts. A determined
effort will be made to pass this measure
and there Is some argument in support
of it. It would cut off an immense
amount of fraud. It would have in
creased our last list by $320,000, and
would have re Juced taxes enough to be
benefit instead of a damage to poor
men. But it is based on a wrong princi
ple ; it is double taxation just as much
as that of mortgaged property. If the
rich man is taxed on the money
which he loans, it is a mani
fest injustice to make the debtor
pay attain on the same money. Our tax
Besides the 12 states that have already
bestowed partial suffrage on women, the
cause is making great progress in others.
In Wyoming where a woman's full citizen
snip b become a settled policy, it is
the universal testimony ol candid observers
that the ballot has been a great moral pow
er in the bands of women. A woman suf
frage amendment has passed both branches
of the Indiana legislature, and mere
every prospect of its ratification by the
neonle this autumn. A similar amena
mnt is now oendinz in Nebraska ; and
Iowa is preparing to follow up her prohibi
tion, with the franchise of the women.

Thb Georgia election last week accom
plished more towards the elimination of the
"color line" from southern politics than
any one event of the last quarter of a cen
tury. The silly and reactionary old hour
bonisin which fought Stephens because of
his progressive character was thoroughly
whipped. The blacks enthusiastically sup.
ported the old Democrat who has been a
friend of their race, and spent so much
time and money for their education. In
one district the report says the "negroes
supported the straight Democratic ticket
nearly solid." And yet in the face of all
these facts Gen GarttreU, who was support
ed by a fusion of Republicans, Greenback
era, Independents and bourbons, raises the
familiar old cry of "intimidation" and pro
poses to contest Stephens' election.
Hxnbt Wako Beeches, at a meeting of
the New York and Brooklyn Aasociatton
of Congregational churches Tuesday, for
mally announced his withdrawal from the
orthodox fellowship. He stated his po
sition, theologically, precisely as it has
been understood for years. He believes In
the divinity of Christ He holds to tbe
inspiration of the Bible as set forth In the
Westminster confession. His theory of
the atonement is the moral influence theory.
In his opinion, the Bible doe not give
authority to say that future suffering is
endless. Beecher himself and his opinions
have come to be of very little consequence ;
but the important and tne gratifying fact is
that, In politely bowing him out, the asso
ciation expressed the opinion thai his views
were not in necessary conflict with those
of the church. It is another proof of the
great strides towards libenlity of modern
religious thought
Ths new compulsory education law
for children, applying to all those be
tween tbe ages of six and thirteen years,
ia at last fairly launched in France, and
week's operation of it has failed to elic
it that opposition from the clerical inter
eat which had been so energetically
threatened. Although it was denounced
in advance from the Vatican as one of
such impiety as "to drive God from the
schools," tad as criminal project
ugainet religion and every high interest
of the country, there baa been no open
avod visible demonstration against it
thoa far, and it certainly look aa if it
waa to be peaceably aqmeaced ia and
accepted. It ia an extreme measure
compelling all parent alike to aend
tbeir children to the public school ; but

jaw st'iMnahip appears to be nim irf,
system is certain to defeat itself when,
to increase the list, it goes to hunting
round for cliances to tax property twice.
A more sensible bill is that already be
fore the house to divide the tax on mort
gaged property between the mortgagor
and mortgagee. Dr Butler has a bill to
guard more closely against selectmen
and civil antliority changing false re
turns or wilful misrepresentations.
There has not been a single move yet
towards remedying the greatest defect of
all to provide an adequate or just tax
ation for corporations. It is time simply
frittered away to patch up these little
places in the law while millions upon
millions of the c irporate property of the
state goes free or practically so. Every
body Is insisting that the law for rail
road appraisal, which has been rendered
such a traves'y and fraud under Roswell
Farnham's administration must be
amended, but no one seems to be mov
ing towards it. Col L. K. Fuller had a
thoughtful article on this question in the
Phoenix last week. Massachusetts, the
most heavily taxed state in the Union,
has made her burdens endurable by her
tax of It per cent on all her corporations.
This measure was at first met with the
nonsense of "unconstitutionality" that
was bo loud against the Page bill two
years ago, but the difficulty was met
by making it a franchise tax. There is
corporate property enough in Ver
mont to pay every dollar of our
state taxes and without assessing
it in any higher proportion than the other
property in the state. There is no reason
in good morals or law why it should not be
made to pay directly to the state aa it does
in Massachusetts. It would end the strug
gle of the towns and counties to over
reach each other, capricious and uneven
values would not be adopted in 241 towns
as now, and national bank stock for in
stance would not be assessed as now, 140
in one town, 100 in another and 80 in still
The tax on savings banks ought clearly
to be increased. By making it unjustly
small we are Inviting capital from out of
the stale to come here to escape taxation
and inducing our own rich men to hide
their money in these institutions. Inspec
tor Du Bois' report shows that only 27,
906 of the depositors were of the $250
less class for whom savings ban as are
devised. Their deposits aggregate
little over $2,000,000, while 14,587
depositors, mainly rich ones, have
$10,500,000, which is taxed about one-
third what other property averages.
Sheridan of Highgate nas a bill to go
back to the old system of taxing depos
itors ; but that has been proved to work
poorly. Instead the tax ought to be col
lected as now and raised to at least three-
fourths of one per cent
Instead of Lynde's or Woodard's rem
edy for men who refuse to make inven
tories, New Hampshire's quadrupling
clause, "by way of doomage, would be
iuster. safer, and more efficient. Then a
requirement of an oath, from selectmen
and civil authority as iron-clad as that
of listers before tbey listen to ap
peals, and for the regulation of equaliz
ing boards, if they are not abolished en
tirely, will afford our law all the amend
ment and guarding it requires.
And still they come. Sherman S. Rogers,
nominee for lieutenant-governor of New
York in 1876, and who had a large number
of votes in the senatorial contest of 1881,
and Wm. J. Bacon, for 15 years judge of
the supreme court, repudiate the Republi
can ticket of forgery and fraud in New
York and proclaim their intention to vote
for Cleveland. Howard Carroll, ex-Jour
nalist, and son-in-law of the rich John H.
8 tarin, has been selected by tbe Republican
state committee for congressman-at-large
in place of Hepburn, resigned, tie accepts,
but tells the party plainly that be won't pay
a cent to help elect the ticket He says :
"I am convinced that the greatest curse
of our political system is tne corrupt on of

ther than this, I may aay that believing
the work of omce-eeeking, place-brokerage
and position-peddling to be no part of the

California railroad commireionera
have voted not to permit any railroad
iter Nov. 1st to charge more than four
cent per mile for passenger '-ravel. This
will rednce fare through the state from
10 to 50 per cent and yet will permit
railroad to charge a touch as they have

Bo xi of th New Hampshire Democrats
are beginning to swell with hop that there
is again a obauo for them to carry th
state. And there is no doubt that if the
leotion wer to ba held to day, they would
do so by a heavy majority 1 but money
very likely to ohange th aspeot of affairs.
Col Edgerly and ,thej Deinoorata act as
they wars sluoera in their determination
frown down the demoralizing oash canvasses
that have so often disgraoed ths party, but
no one is so (rreea as to imagine that Hali
or the Republicans will have any aoruples
in this matter. There is so union purchas
able stuff anions New Hampshire voters,
and so strict a partisanship among decent
men who don't sell their votes, that it seems
almost vain to hope the Demoorata can
hold their present advantage. Still, Judg
ing from the stole press, there is a deep
di-watisfaotion in portions of the state over
Hale's nomination, and it is barely possiuie
that it may show up surprisingly on elec
tion day. The Milford Enterprise refuses
to run up Hale's name and tills its blank
space with the words, "Any man you ean
conscientiously vow for." The Bunoook
Journal, edited by an old soldier, refuses
thus far to say a word in favor of Hale, but
Is full of compliments for Edgerly. The
Manchester Times and Peterboro Transcript
which have been holding off, appear not to
be ready to head a bolt, but say nothing
good for Hale. It is claimed that tbe op
position in Hale's old county is weakening,
but its organ, the Keene .Observer, insists
that hosts of these Republicans are going
to scratch the ticket. Altogether it is
healthy, even if ineffectual opposition,
Mr Hale is personally, we believe, a fine
man: but like the money bags who get
into politics, he has allowed his wealth to
be used iu the baseBt ways, and be deserves
nothing but defeat
Chairman Hubbill, in tbe relentless
pursuit of his victims, occasionally runs
down a dead man, and sometimes he wakes
up a very live one, as is shown by the fol
lowing epistle, which the postmaster at
Leeds, Conn., has written him :
"I am in receipt of your appeal for pe
cuniary aid in carrying tbe fall election in
the interest of "the grand old Republican
party ;" and I also fully agree with you in
the beiief that it would be a terrible mis
fortune to the country to have the wicked
Democratic Dartv attain restored to power.
I also believe that the free use of money is
indi8Densable to our success as a party

Tnit supreme court of Wisconsin has
rendered a decision which puts tbe whole
system of dealing in "futures," buying and
selling "on margin," etc, under the ban ot
the law as gambling. The case was the
common one where a man bought grain
not for actual delivery, but for settlement
at the prices on the dny agreed upon or for
ostensible delivery. $2500 was lost by the
transaction and his broker who did the bus
iness for him sued him for the loss which
he refused to pay. The court decided that
it is a debt which can't be collected, for it
was not a legitimate business transaction,
there was no real purchase or sale ; it was
simply betting on . the price of grain on a
certain day. This decision has both good
morals and good sense back of it and if it
hi sustained by tbe courts of higher resort in
other states, as it ought to be, It will very
largely break up this dangerou . kind lit
It is highly disgraceful, if true as al
leged by some state newspapers, that Bos
ton parties connected with the Central Ver
mont litigation, are operating a lobby a
Montpelier to defeat Judge Royoe's re
election. This is an issue that ought not to
be allowed to enter into the contest at all,
to complicate the one overshadowing ques
tion, whether an open, defiant violator of
the tax law, shall remain the chief inter
preter of all our law. But it is more than
probable that there is no truth to the charge,
that it ib only a cover for another railroad
lobby working to reelect Royee. At aay
rate, whichever is the true state of the case,
it is proof enough of the debasement of
eur politics and of the pressing need of a
reform in our methods of judicial elections,
when we find the litigants on either side
of great railroad controversy at work in
the legislature to moke or unmake judges.
The Philadelphia Times estimates, as a
result of the Oliio election, that Stewart,
Independent, will poll 200,000 votes in
Pennsylvania, leading tbe regular Republi
can eke t. If this is the result, Pattison,
Democrat, is sure to go in by over 50,000
plurality. A well-informed observer of New
York politics tells us that Cleveland's ma
jority in New York will hug a good deal
closer to 100,000 than is generally Imag
ined. It looks as it there was a good deal
of a break-up under the feet of Hubbell,
Robeson, Cameron & Co.
The Montpelier Argus makes this sug
gestion, which contains considerable
good sense. "The Legislature should pars
a law that every mortal, arrested for in
toxication who swears that he "got it out
of a black bottle ; don't know who it was
that gave it to me; never saw him be
fore," etc., etc., should be adjudged guilty
of perjury and sent up for 00 days at
least. This "bottle perjury" is getting to
be a nuisance ; but then it saves the gen
eral vender."
Th N. Y. Time thinks "it is hardly
possible that the legialature will retain a
chief justice (Royee) who disobeys the
law." Wait and see. There are influence
back of Judge Royee which are very hard
to defeat. But for them, there weuldn't be
a ghost of a chance for auoh a tax dodger
to be reelected.

The election iu Ohio Tuesday was a
"regular Bull Run disaster to the Repub-
licanBas," a the editor of the Cincinnati
Gazette lugubriously pit's it. The Repub
lican party has been knocked down and
dragged out by the Germans, as Mnrat
naisieau oi me commercial purases it.
On the niilit before the election both
sides conceeded the state to be doubtful
and the highest majority that any of the
Democratic mam gers presumed to claim
was 0,250. But it was evident aa soon as
the returns began to come in at mid
night that the state had gone Demo
cratic bv a full 15,000 and though they
are still incomplete, every hour's news
makes the thing worse for the Republi
cans and it is nos8ible that the uiaioritv
will run up, as some Democrats claim, to
35,000. 3'1ih Republicans concede 20,000
ami ii is HKeiy to De uetweeu zo,uuu and
But this is not all. The last Republi
can legislature eerrvmandered the state
so that they thought they were sure of
electing two thirds oi tne congressmen.
Instead, the Democrats have got at least
that proportion. The Republicans are
sure of majorities in only five districts
out of 21. Several of the districts are
very close, but it looks now as if the
Democrats would have 15 to tbe Re
publican's six. This makes Congress 1-2
a Democratic body. The present Con
gress in the lower House stands 146 Re
publicans, 135 Democrats and 12 readjus
era and greeubackers. The Republi-,
cans gainod two congressmen in Maine
one in West Virginia and have lost nine
in O.iio, making their full number to
date 140. The Democrats have gained
IU iu Ohio (there being 21 districts in
stead of 20,) vhile they lost no regular
Democratic lenreBentation from Maine.
so they now have 144 or four more than
the Republicans; . There is no prospect
of the KeuUbiicans regaining the ma
jority in the remaining elections. They
win pick up a lew stray members in the
south, but are certain to lose heavily in
jew xorir. and Pennsylvania and they
may come out one or two short in Mas
sachusetts while the are fighting a los
ing D tttle generally throughout the coun
l lie causes of this revolution in Ohio
are various. It is mainly attributed to
the temperance issue, in which the Re
publicans, though they were insincere
and double dealing, proclaiming dia
metrically opposite doctrines in the city
and country, were the nearest right.
There has been a de.il of blundering
legislation, but generally speaking, the
question was the taxation of the liquor
trafticjunder a constitution which forbids
license, and the closing of the saloons
Sunday. Tbe latter issue brought tbe
Germans in the cities solidly to the
Democrats, while the Irish Catholics
went largely to the Republicans and 500
Cincinnati negroes, as it is estimated.
voted Democratic. The issues and dis
tincti mis were somewhat vague on
all sides, but as a whole the Democrats
appeared to be in favor of free rum, bun
day as well as week days, and so far as
their victory was the result of this po
sition it is nothing to be proud of,
uut mis was not nearly all. The re
publicans expected to lose heavily in the
cities on ibis issue, but to gain still more
in the rural districts, but they lost almost
as heavily in the country and the fact
can be accounted for only on issues of
national politics. Tbe Herald-Republi
can, of Cleveland states the case justly,.
wnen it says : rue tun .Republican vote
of Ohio is never polled unless the hearts
of tne masses are enlisted in the work
and their enthusiasm raised. They find
nothing in the present situation of the
party to encourage them. They bave
been disgusted and demoralized by tbe
scramble ior spoils in Washington, the
dictatorial insolence and selfishness of
the leaders, who should have set the ex
ample of conuiliatioa and patriotic con
cession and the ruinous party quarrels
in New York and Pennsylvania.
One of the most gratilying features is
the brilliant victory which Frank Hurd
won in the 10th district. He made his
fight fearlesslv on in out and out free
trade issue, braving the opposition of
Democratic manufacturers.
The election was very quiet and the
vote light The Republicans made gains
generally. Geo -God', their candidate
For Congress, is erw-ilPJ in the Wheeling
district. In the second district, Mason
has made a gain of 1000. but he admits
that he is beaten by 500.
Two vears ago wheu the Republicans
carried' Newark, N J., in a municipal elec
tion by 2500 majority, they regarded it
as a presage of victory in the state.
Last Tuesday the Democrats reversed
this verdict and carried the city by 2500.
If tbe Democrats finally carried the
state then, what will they do now ?
