THE POLITICAL STATUS OF tHE
In another portion of Ihis paper to
day we reproduce a portion of a most
remarkable speech of Senator Jones, of
Nevada, delivered in the United States
Senate Chamber last Friday.' The Sen
ate was discussing the "Chinese Bill,"
and while the portion we publish bears
more particularly upon the political,
social and moral status of the colored
man, they were thrqwn in incidentally
in the discussion which arose over the
bill to prohibit the "heathen Chinee"
from immigrating to this country.
Itisa remarkable speech; remarka
ble as having come from the lips of a
Itapublican Senator remarkable be
cause it "talks right out in meeting" on
the problem which the colored man
forces this country to solve, and not
less remarkable because many of the
leading men of t!ie Republican party
are beginning to look upon these "ward3
of the nation" ;i3 an incubus upon the
political as well as the industrial pros
perity the country.
Many, months ago The Observer,
with a political foresight for which it
it has not yet received any credit, as
serted that the "day would come when
the Republican party of the North
would attempt the political emascula
tion of the colored man, and in that
day if his rights were maintained it
would be through the championship of
the Democratic party." Senator Jones'
speech may be looked upon as the en
tering wedge in the campaign which is
yet to be waged. When a stalwart
among the stalwarts, like Senator Jones,
stands up in the highest legislative
body known to our government and as
serts that "negro suffrage was a dismal
"failure; men had tried to change an
"edict of Almighty God, in this country ;
"but God was not mocked; Omnipo
tence had made the white man superior
"and the negro subordinate ; it is one
"thing to aspire to freedom,and another
"thing to have the intelligence to main
"tain freedom; the negroes in the
"South, if left to themselves, could not
"preserve their freedom for ten years ;
' they would relapse into the barbarism
"from which they had come ; no negro
"would ever have been permitted to en
"ter this, country if the founders of the
"Republic had ever dreamed of theposi
"bility of their enfranchisement; the
"North would be no better off than the
"South if negroes were as common there
'as in South Carolina; this might be
"heresy to Republican ideas ; but he did
"not cure if it was; it was the truth,
and h-. stuck to it;" it means that more
like L.m are beginning to look the mat
ter sq arely in the face.
We may be in error, but we do not
believe that history records a single in
stance where two separate and distinct
races, either both equa1, or where one
was superior to the other, have ever
lived harmoniously together on terms
Of political quality. If the South is to
be an exception to this universal rule,
in these latter days, it will not be
through the wisdom of man, but it will
be one of those Providences of the
Almighty which are sometimes seen
airi Mt, but never provided for.
Bu we get along too fast. The pl t
ic.ti status of the colored man was es
tablis 'd by the Republican party as an
element of strength to that party, and
men like Senator Jones are discovering
at la.st that it turns out to be a modern
political, boomerang, the rebound of
which comes with' greater fort e than
the missile started with, and he for oue
is ready to cry out, "hold, enough !"
Mr Randall well says that "Senator
'Jones speech fell like a bombshell in
to the Republican camp," and we shall
be surprised if the report of the explo
sion don't produce its effect among the
black cohorts of the Republican party
at the South, who see by assertions like
these that only asses ears peep out from
under the thin skin of the lion of Re
publican sympathy. Nous verrons.
THE GARFIELD "PLAN."
We have received an advanced copy
of the following editorial printed in the
Philadelphia American demanding a
return tothe Garfield "plan," of a "reali
zation of national life," which that pa
. per explains to be something after this
"rresiaent liariieia designed a liberal
policy. He meant to deal fairly with
every reputable element of the party
that had elected him. He had no
factional spirit. His purpose included
a just recognizition of Republicans who
differed from him on mere points of de
tiil.tle entertained no schemes of pro
scription. His cabinet contained mem
bers who had stood nearer to his Re
publican opponents than they had to
himself. He had no idea of confining
to a clique or a 'ring' the powers and
prerogatives which the whole party had
. placed in his hands, and which, under
the Constitution, he held in trust for
all the people. He meant to improve
the public service. He knew the needs
of improvement. However hacknied
the name of reform, however dishonest
ly it has been invoked by demagogues
! and scoundrels, he still knew that re
form was the duty of every faithful
President. He meant to keep his ad
ministration clean. He intended to
drive away from it the harpies and job
bers who throng around any President
who does not show himself earnestly
. hostile to corruption. He meant, too, to
; keep it free from mean intrigues and
; low alliances. He hoped for success
: before the sight of the people, and not
through secret bargains with the venal
elements of an opposing party. Jtwas
- his object to keep, his flag unstained
and unsullied ; to act in the open, with
honor and courage; to succeed by true
and positive merit.' He believed in re
storing to the people their impaired po
i.' -litical freedom. Never a 'boss' himself,

ter being called into question, some: one
claiming to be a Republican, and sign
ing himself "Justice," publishes a com
munication in the Washington Post as
serting that he. saw the letter in the
hands of Mr. Chase, and goes on to say:
"To one who knew Garfield well this
letter is no surprise. He was a treach
erous, a cowardly, a hypocritical man
selfish to the extreme and not caring
what happened, so it did not happen to
himself. Gen. Rosecranz was and is
worth to this country a thousand Gar-
fields. When the fiehting that Garfield
was craving.for came on he took good
cure to keep out of danger." This is no
doubt a stab from an enemy, as unman
ly as it is uncalled for.
As suggestive of ex-Senator Conk-

The Sale of the Arlington Estate.
Washington. March 10. In the
United States Supreme Court to-day
argument was heard in case No. 219,
the United States, plaintiff in error, vs.
George W. P. Q. Lee, and No. 220,
Frederick Kaufman et al., plaintiffs in
error, vs. George W. P. C. Lee. This
was a suit or ejectment brought by
General Lee to recover possession of a
tract of about 1100 acres of land, known
as the Arlington estate, situated in Vir
ginia, on the right bank 6f the Potomac,
nearly opposite the city of Washington.
This property, which belonged for many
years to George W.P. Custis, and after
ward to General Lee, was sold for taxes
under the act of Congress of June 7th,
1862, and was bought by the Govern
ment. It has since been used in part
as a National Cemetery and in part as
a military post. It is maintained by
counsel for the defendant in error that
the tax sale under which the United
States claim title was illegal, for the
reason mat previous to such sale a ten
der of taxes had been made in behalf of
the owner and had been refused be
cause the law required the owner to
pay the taxes in person. It is main
tainpd on the other hand, in behalf of
the United States, first, that the sale
was leeal and valid, and second, that
