We confess that we were somewhat
surprised when Mr. Vorhees, of Indi
ana, took position in the Senate against
the repeal of the pension arrears act,
because we had thought that the atro
ciousness of that act had been so fully
shown up, and so thoroughly under
stood that but few would be found to
defend it, and these few of the small-
calibred order of demagogues. The sub
ject has been so much discussed and so
fully ventilated, that there could be no
lack of information upon it. It has
been charged time and time again that

who are coining money by putting

pensions and dividing them amongst

men who have drawn arrears who
couldn't find the wounds they were af
flicted with it they tried.
When Mr. Vorhees in the teeth of all
that has been made public on the other
side, defends this , gross fraud it
would seem that he is court
ing the favor of the soldier element,
before which so many of our public
men have bowed since the war, and for
the votes of whom they have stooped
to the basest of demagogism. We rather
fear that Mr. Vorhees is losing in latter
years some of the stiring independence

There was a great outcry against the
reduction of the tax on tobacco made

obtained from a higher tax rate.

and was placed there as a precaution
against accident. ,
On being asked why he thought the
train was stopped by some of the
passengers on the car, he said he sur
mised that such was the case, for, said
he, "there was a party on the train
who were singing, smashing hats, and
conducting themselves in a very . dis
graceful manner. They were passing
around bottles of whisky, and the
foundation of that accident was rum."
He had not sufficient force on the
train to stop such proceedings. Among
tne passengers were a number of sena
tors, assemblymen and aldermen, and
he could not deprive them of their
bottles. This was an every-day occur
rence, but more especially so on Fridays.

A BIO THING FOR FLORIDA.
The contemplated ship canal across
the peninsula of Florida is one of the
schemes that will probably be realized
in the near future, and is one of vast
importance not only to theState of Flor
ida through which it will pass, but to
all the Gulf States, and indirectly to
all the Southern States. It will cut off
several hundred miles of travel of the
most dangerous part of the coast and
will save millions annually lost in ships
and cargoes on the Florida reefs. In
addition to the saving in thU respect,
it will so shorten the distance from
Gulf ports to Northern and European
ports that what are now regarded as
perishable freights may be shipped
without danger of loss, while it will
open up the way for a heavy grain bus
iness with Europe. The Mississippi
river now carries a vast quantity of
wheat, oats, corn, etc., to New Orleans,
whence it will be shipped by this new
and shorter route to Europe. New Or
leans does a considerable business of
this kind already, but the grain is liable
to heat on account of the time required
to make the passage across the ocean,
whieh wiil be to a great extent obviated
by the reduced distance which this new
canal will afford. Not only this but it
will open up an extensive trade with
the Pacific States which are now con
nected with Southern ports by the
Southern Pacific. There is not much
said yet about this canal, but we take it
that it is one of the certain things of
the near future, and one of the most
important things to American com

in the circuit court on information by
quo warranto by the attorney-general,
assisted by ex-Gor. John M. Palmer, in
relation to John Longress, against the

The board had divided the city into
eight districts for school purposes, and
adopted a rule requiring all children of
African descent to attend one school
specially designated for colored chil

in other districts.

of the school board are in violation of
