NO REVISION- OF THE TARIFF.
i of a
the nreaent session, is settled so far as
this Congress is concerned, by the pas
sage of the rnion 111 wjhicls te

haustive debate, and now goes to the
President for his .signature. He will
The Democrats in both Houses with
a few exceptions opposed the proposed
Co 3 mission, while the Republicans,
with a few exceptions supported it The
Democrats favored a. revision of the
tariff, and a remodeling of the system
by reducing when the present tariff
was heavier than it ought to be, and
repealing such duties as were f ounk to
be unnecessary to meet the require
ments of the government Their ob
ject was to revise the whole minus sys
tem which was framed upon a war
basis and adopt one suited to the times,
and the present demands of the gov
ernment For years there have been
collected millions in excess of the heeds
of the government to meet all its re
quirements. The amount now reach
ing something like $150,000,000 annual
ly, which enormous sum of money is
withdrawn from circulation and re
mains locked jap; in the vaults 1 of j the
Treasury Department. : f j ( i
There is no reason why stfch vast'
sums should be' amiually colleoted and
locked up as a surplus, and the people
burdened with enormous and unneces
sary burdens. The Democrats took
this view of it, and in the interest of
the people demanded a reduction, and
struggled hard to effect it, but the Re
publican, in the interest "of monopo
lies, and those whose wish it is to re
tain the present systembecauset puts
money in their purses while it takes it
out of the pockets of those upon whom
tribute is levied.
The commission bill is nothing more
nor less than a scheme to indefinitely
postpone, and practically defeat any re
duction of tax and revision of tariff
whatever, although demanded and ex
pected by the people, and for that the
- Republican majority in Congress is re
sponsible, which true to its instinet,
as it always has been, was deaf to the
voice of the people.
Dr. Mott is not having the game all
his own way by any means. There is
an element in the Republican party
which has all along opposed his sad
dling that party with the anti-prohibition
issue, and they do not propose to
sit quietly and let him wake that issue
and make it a part of the Republican
coalition platform, as he has been in
triguing to do in the coming campaign.
The Asheville citizen gives an account
of a meeting of prominent Republicans
which was held in Asheville last Thurs
day night, from which we clip the fol
lowing: A caucus of the elements was called
to meet in Asheville Thursday night
A number were present from Greens
boro to Cherokee. Dr. Mott was there,
he was. The ruling in and ruling out
programme was cussed and discussed,
Dro and con. n n and down And art far oa
Mott and his wing are concerned it was
more "up" than "down," more "con" than
"pro." It was evident before the speak
ing ceased that the doctor's corset,
usually well-laced, was loosening. It
was necessary. Ball and those "few"
prohibitionists for whom he spoke laid
the law down to the great go-lier of the
revenue rinir ' and Rrmr.hinr had fA

are the bosses of the Republican camp.
Exeunt Mott - None so poor now as to
do him reverence. Lignum vitae, plu

Bantam, slews the Dunghill, and steps
forth the cock of the walk., Had Ball
been as powerful with the voters as he
has proven himself over;Mott and his
minions that pestiferous" measure so
called prohibition would have been the
law of the land to-day. . But Mott is
walloped on his own ground. He has
surrendered to the enemy he despises
most Ball, Douglas, Keogh, and others.
He has pledged himself and friends to
heave the prohibition issue to the doors
as it were to fight over, and not to
drag It around as a skeleton to disturb
the already unhappy Republican fami-

gested, nothing is left him but to topple'
over upon the "liberal" platform just
flung upon an astonished world by Tom
Copper and O'Hara the darkey, over
Col. Johnston's -shoulders, when the
doctor's roar was heard not long since
we thought him the Lion of the Repub
lican forest; lut when' Ball and the
boys got after him the other night in
dead earnest, he proved to be a regular
Jackass rabbit, forVifittin away. By

Should the Republicans who are op
posed to Mott's new movement stand
firm, the coalition cannot be effected,
and then what a lonely time Col. John
ston with his handful of so-called lib
erals will have. Thus far the only aid
and comfort they have received has
been from Dr. Mott, andjf he should
flash In the pan what would become of
them and their nice little plans.

The chair announced his signature
to the tariff commission.
The bill for the intermediate appel
late courts was further discussed,
George resuming and concluding his
criticisms upon the measure.
Jones, of Florida, offered an amend
ment affecting appeals from district to
circuit courts, but this and several
amendments offered by George and
Morgan were lost by nearly the same
vote, the Democrats voting aye, and
the Republicans, with Davis of Illinois,
in the negative.
An amendment was adopted on mo
tion Of Davis, of Illinois, providing
more explicitly that the jurisdiction of
the circuit court shall be neither en
larged nor abridged by the bill.
After an ineffectual effort to dispose
of the bill unanimous consent was se
cured for a final vote upon it to-fior-row.
The conference report on the Indian
appropriation bill was submitted by
Dawes, who said the total had been re

It provides that for the next

lars to aid in the support of free com
mon schools, which amount shall be
known as the common school fund, and
which shall be apportioned to the sev
eral states and territories, according to
the number of their illiterate popula
tion, over ten years of age. An amount
not exceeding five per cent of the sum
apportioned, may be used for the edu
cation of teachers in the public schools.
- The House then resumed the consid
eration of the Geneva Award bill! Af
ter a long debate the previous question
was ordered on the bill, but without
further action the matter went over.
The Speaker laid before the House a
communication from the Secretary of
War, in lesponse to the Honse resolu
tion, calling for information as to the
expenditures of the signal service. Re
ferred. The expenditures are as fol
lows: 1875, $455,286; 1876, $440,678;
1877, $424,702; 1878, $495,640; 1879,
$504,492; 1880, $539,131; 1881, $593,844.
The expenditures previously reported
by the Secretary of State appear to
have been erroneous.
