DQN'T WANT ANY CHANGE.
The Republican members of Congress
have caucussed upon the question of
reducing the internal revenue taxes,
and have decided that it Is not advisa
ble at present to interfere with the tax
on spirits, tobacco, cigars, &c, but re
frained from expressing an opinion on
the abolition or reduction of taxes on
other articles now subject to tax.
There are political reasons for this
action. The repeal of the tax on these
articles would of course wipe out the
occupation of the vast number of men
who constitute the internal revenue
force, nearly every one of whom is a
useful agent in carrying out the schemes
of the leaders of the Republican party.
They are, so to speak, the right arm of
that party, and their los3 would be an
irreparable one to it. The victories of
the Republican party for years past
were won mainly through the active
services of, and the organization effect
ed through the instrumentality of the
revenue department, which had its ser-
vantsin every locality, and required
every one of them to be a worker for
the party. In the South they have been
and are to-day the main dependence of
that party, and if they were legislated
out of existence officially, the party
would be practically without any or
ganization in this section. As the sys
tem stands now on the approach of an
election for President or members of
Congress, when it is thought important
to influence results, the. number of
revenue men may be indefinitely in
creased and where they may be made
useful, men are picked up and appoint
ed temporarily drawing pay from the
government for the political Services
they render. This has been carried on
to such a scandalous extent in the
South that it has attracted the atten
tion of the most indifferent observers.
We have felt the power of the revenue
gang in this State in every general elec
tion that has .been held since the war,
and whenever we have sustained a de
feat we could trace it to the active
work and powerful influence of that
agency. It is a powerful political ma
chine and the men that run it know its
power. , The men who sat in the cau
cus to which we alluded in the begin
ning of this article, know, too, how use
ful it i3, and hence were not disposed
to favor legislation that would deprive
their party of such efficient workers
who had rendered such good service in
the past and who could be counted on
for much good service in the future.
Kepublican politicians may favor the
abolition of some taxes, but to expect
them to disturb the pleasant relations
that exist between whiskey, tobacco,
cigars, &c, and the Republican party,
at the present time or in the near fu
ture is expecting too much. They won't

Jacob R. Shipherd has served an ap
prenticeship in m my schools that
teach cunning and chicane. He began
as a preach, served a few months in the
army, was elected president of the
Freedman's Union Aid Commission, in
Chicago. After the war he founded a
religious weekly newspaper called The
Advance, which he soon gave up to
establish a real estate office in Chicago,
and was next heard of at Long Island
as a railroad president and land specu
lator. Failing in all these pursuits he
studied law and was admitted to trie

to the rule which provides that a com

calling for departmental information
within eight d;tys and to the fact that
the resolution referred to the commit

imprisonment of American citizens in
Great Britain had not as yet betn acted
upon. How long, he queried, will,we
neglect our citizens lying in jail ?
Williams, of Wisconsin, chairman of
the committee on foreign affairs, said
he felt authorized to state that com
munication was being constantly had
with the government of Great Britain
by the State department, and it was un
derstood that in a few days the com
mittee would be able to make an intel
ligent report on the resolution.
Robinson: If something is not done
and our minister has not demanded his
passport, I shall move impeachment.
Wilson, of West. Virginia, a member
of the committee, stated that the reso
lution had not yet been reported back
because the committee desired to ob
tain all necessary information. There
were no laches on the part of the com
mittee. Robinson replied that that would
make his question of impeachment un
necessary. The House then proceeded to the con
sideration of private business.
