Dr. Lamson, who was hanged in Eng
land last Friday was in a very dejected
frame of mind. We think if anything
should put a man into a dejected frame
of mind, the prospect of being swung
into eternity on a rope would be calcu-
lated to do it.
It seems to us that Senators Vance
and Ransom 'made a mistake in con
senting to the confirmation of Mr. Coop
er as collector of this district if they
could have prevenuJ If, They proba
bly deemed it good policy to refrain
from further opposition tohs confirma
tion In consideration of securing there
by the committee of investigation they
asked for into the administration of the
office of collector under Dr. Mbit, but
the investigation which might have
amounted to something with Cooper
out, will not, in our opinion, amount to
much with Cooper in. Cooper may not
do anything to defeat it, we do not say
he will, but the very fact that he is in,
the recognized friend and co-factional
of Mott, will cool the ardor of the Re
publican volunteer witnesses who were
willing to testify as long as there was
a probability of their testimony ousting
the Mott-Cooper combination, but who
will now hang back and only appear
under compulsion, and then will tell as
little as they can because their tes
timony will do them no good and may
hurt the party, in whose continuance
in power they have an interest as well
as Mott, Cooper and company. The in
vestigation was moved on information
furnished by the Republican faction
opposed to these gentlemen, and they
professed to be able to furnish the
proofs of the abuses alleged, and from
the indications manifested they would
no doubt take a zealous interest in es
tablishing the truth of their charges.
But now mum will be their part be
cause Mott being out, and Cooper in
there is no longer the motive left of re
moving the one or defeating the other.
Their action in the premises was un
doubtedly based on selfishness and not
with a view to correcting abuses or
purifying the service, but they were
inside of the circle and were in posses
sion, if we believe their assertions, of
information which would have made
the investigation interesting.
How reliable the information they
may have furnished, upon the strength
of which the investigation was asked
for, or how reliable their testimony
might be upon investigation we have
no means of knowing now, nor are we
considering at present; but whether re
liable or unreliable we think they will
produce it very reluctantly, if at all, as
affairs now stand. It may be that con
senting to the confirmation was the only
way in which the agreement to the in
vestigation could be secured and hence
the bargain, but if so, we believe the
Republicans got the advantage in the
swap. If political considerations had
any influence with our Senators in the
transaction we would have gained po
litically by keeping Cooper out as long
as possible and thus keeping up the
fight between the factions, and keeping
up the advertisement of each other
which was being so extensively done.
The confirmation of Cooper has brought
the warring factions to a halt, restored
peace in the camp, and the probabilities
are they will all put their heads togeth
er now to defeat any investigation that
might "damage the party."
THE COURT OF APPEALS BILL

The Nihilists seem to be extending
operations. The last dispatches from
Europe announce the discovery of a
mine under the Kremlin in Moscow
where the Czar is to be crowned, (if that
ceremony which has been so long defer
red ever does come off), the Nihilists
intending to participate in the celebra
tion of that event by blowing the es
tablishment and its royal and courtly
inmates into the upper air, or some
where else. This discovery Bpoiled
their plans for innocent amusement.
About the same time two infernal ma
chines, one directed to W. H. Vander

New York, were detected by the pre
mature explosion of one of the ma
chines in the mail car while in transit
in New York, which probably saved
the lives of one or both of the intended
victims. After a few incidents of this
kind these gentlemen will probably
open their mail by proxy, and give pack
ages a very wide berth. While crowns
and great wealth have their fascina

into Judicial districts and fixing times

Northern and Southern districts. The
Northern district is sub-divided into
Eastern and Western divisions, and
two terms of district court are to be
held each year at Aberdeen and Oxford.
But one staff of court officers is provid
ed for the Northern district, who shall
officiate in both divisions of the court.
The Senate then took up the bill re

The Senate resumed the considera
tion of the unfinished business, the bill
to establish a court of appeals.
Morgan had read by the clerk a sub
stitute providing ior a court oi zeaerai
He said the substitute had been pre
pared by a member of the District bar
and he preferred its arrangement to
that of the committee bill His plan
would be to cut down the jurisdiction
of the Federal courts and relegate ex
traneous subjects to the State courts
where they originally belonged. An
increase of the Supreme Court bench
would not, in his opinion, afford re
lief. The project of an intermediate Ap
pellate court he regarded as the only
remedy, and upon this point he advo
cated the provision of a substitute for,
but one such court with ten additional
judges, as against the proposition of the
bill which he said created nine such
courts and eighteen additional judges,
or one court for each circuit, with the
present district and circuit judges
thereof, and two additional judges.
Morgan further stated that he could
not subscribe to the proposition of the
bill that the present Judges shall sit as
members of the appellate court. He
asserted that some of the district judges
were unfit for any such responsible po
sition. Some of them had been mere
partisan tools, and he preferred new
judges taken fresh from the people
rather than old fossils on the bench
who had become indurated in the ser
vice of party rather than of country.
In this connection he criticized the rul
ing of such judges in Alabama to show
their alleged Ignorance of legal require
ments and incompetence for their
duties. He could never give his con
sent to the bill if men of this class were
to constitute the proposed court
Butler submitted several proposed
amendments to be printed. One pro
rides that after the establishment of
courts of appeal no appointments to the
supreme bench shall oe made until the
number of Judges is reduced to six.
Garland and Vest also gave notice of
amendments, and the bill was then laid

intention to vote for the bill. Neither
the House nor the committee on ways

gent revision of the tariff at this ses

that the pending measure was in the
interest of expedition and not in the
