The Atlanta Constitution rightly
thinks the President should attend the

of Cabinet officers and a horde of hun

The House wound up the discussion
of the case of Bisbee, Republican, of
Florida, against Finley, Thursday even
ing, by declaring Bisbee entitled to the
seat by a vote of 141 to 9, and then took
up the case of Lowe, of Alabama,
against Wheeler, which was under dis
cussion yesterday. It will be decided
la the same way to-day.
The Statesville American informs us
that "the administration favors the

the independent side of the coalition
stoutly denied, that there had been any
understanding with the administration
on the coalition question.

COL. JOHNSTON'S RECORD.
Col. Wm. Johnston having made a
summersault into the bosom of the
Republican party his past political
record becomes a matter of interest to
his new allies. In 1862 he was the
Democratic candidate for Governor of
the State, and the following is the tick
et, and the platform on which he stood.
We reprint it merely to ask if the Col.
Johnston of to-day is the same Col.
Johnston that many North Carolinians
voted for in preference to Gov. "Vance :

Jeff Davis, Our Army and the South.
As this wa3 nearly twenty years ago
and the colonel might plead the statute
of limitations on us, we reproduce
a "Card," published in Tiie Observer
on the 54th July 1878, which will be
good reading for fire tried republicans :
To the Edit ir ot the Observer.

of proper party organization, 1 can as

seems to have come over the spirit of
his dreams in a contest in wnicn so
much is at stake to my country ; and I
would advise all Democrats to support
and vote for Col. Steele, the nominee of
the Monroe convention.
Great as was the Democratic victory
in 1876, even our State government is
not entirely redeemed. The ides of Aug
ust. I trust, will nnaiiy seine mis con

already by Republican sentiment been

With una leariui issue presented let
the Democrats stand at the polls in ser-
ied ranks, in solid column. Let none
leave the lines until tne nnai struggle
the tug of war, is past in 1880, when
the great battle lor . iree government,
and civil liberty against empire may
be fought. The cause is worthy of in
dividual sacrifices as well as the high
est devotion to free institutions. Let
us stand together for Democratic rule,
which has done so mucn in tne past to
relieve our burdens and maintain civil
liberty in both State and Federal gov
ernments. (Signed) Wm. Johnston.
Charlotte, N. C July 23, 1878.
We might ask if Democratic suprem
acy was so important four years ago, is'
it less so now ? We might ask further,
if Col. Johnston had been nominated
at the Rockingham convention " two
years ago instead.flf.Maj. Do wd would
he occupy the role he does now ? We
do ask further is this the same Demo
cratic Col. Johnston of two years ago
who would now be the political Moses
to lead the liberal party so-called into
the wilderness of Republicanism?
One question more : Col. Johnston in
his speech at the court house last Wed
nesday is said to have attacked the
present system of county government.
Is he the same man who was nominat
ed as the Democratic candidate for the
State convention from Mecklenburg
county in 1878, on this very platform,
and was beaten, and if so in what re
spect has the Republican party become
so much more holy, than it was then
when he was fighting "Grandma Kerr,"
and "Aunt Nancy" on the stump ?

Washington, June 2. Senate.-
At the hour of assembling Acting Sec
retary Francis E. Shober read a note
from President (pro tern) Davis as fol
lows: "Asl shall be absent from the
opening of the session this morning
under provisions of rule 4, 1 name Hon.
John G. Ingalls, Senator from the State

egate a Senator to take his place,which,
unaer me circumstances, coma only De
filled by an election by the Senate.
Hoar suggested that Ingalls be de
clared presiding officer for to-day. He
desired to avoid a protracted discussion
at this time. His own opinion was that
the action of the president Qf the Sen
ate in designating a member to takeH
his place was not more binding upon

A lone and at times a warm debata
followed, participated in by nearly ev-.
ery Senator present, in the course of
which several motions to adjourn were
offered. Finally, shortly after an allu
sion to the apparent indisposition of
the Senate to commit itself by positive
action upon the important question
which had been precipitated upon it,
an adjournment was moved, which was
agreed to unanimously. The Senate
accordingly adjourned until Monday.
House. Immediately after the read
ing of the journal the House resumed
the consideration of the Alabama con
tested election case of Lowe against
Thompson, of Iowa, submitted an
argument in favor of the claims of the
contestant and incidentally denied the
statement made by Wheeler last even
ing to the effect that he had not been
fairly treated by the committee on
Mills, of Texas, spoke in advocacy of
the right of the sitting member to re
tain his seat, and was followed by Jones,
of Texas, in favor of the contestant.
.Atherton, of Ohio, consumed his
hour in the reading of tHe report of
the minority, only calling attention to
the fact that, tut three Republican
members were paying the slightest at
tention and criticizing such inattention
on the part of the judges who were to
decide the case. He said it had been
charged that there was an agreement
between certain gentlemen on the other
side (alluding to the Greenbackers and
Jones, of Texas,
charge to be false.
Atherton : "Very well ; I will show
you that a Republican paper itself
charges it." He then quoted from the
Washington Republican to the effect
that the Greenbackers had been stead
fast and true to the Republicans in the
recent election cases and that the latter
were bound in honor to see justice done
Several Republicans, "that is it, jus
tice." Atherton replied that soon it would
be-found what justice meant in the Re
publican ranks. There were now 26
Republicans n the chamber, but when
the matter came to a vote 150 would
come without knowing anything about

the contest until after Waterloo and
until Napoleon was on his way to St,
Helena. Then passing to review Chal
mers' case, and referring to the state
ment that he was coming over to the
Republican party, he declared that that
party had stood a good deal from the
Democrats, but that they could not pass
Chalmers off on It. He belonged to the
Democratic paity by nature.

Horr: "I don't believe it: it is not
true, and if it is Chandler is in low bus
Manning: "That he is."
Horr then passed on to the discussion
of the Mackey-Dfbble case and made
some allusions to the method of elec
tions in South Carolina, which brought
Evins to his feet with an assertion that
South Carolina was not ashamed of
anything she ever did.
Horr replied that he was not foolish
enough to guess that she would mantle
other peoples' cheeks with shame. Her
people rolled as sweet morsels under
liorr, in conclusion, protested aeainst
tne decision oi the election cases upon
technical quilps and declared that he
would vote for .Lowe, although to the
sins of a Democrat, be added, the fool

Pending further discussion. Cannon.

on appropriations the legislative, judici
al and executive appropriation bill
items of which have already been pub
lished, and it was referred to the com
mittee of the whole.
Hiscock, from the same committee,
reported back the general deficiency
bill, and it received similar reference.
The election case then went over un
til to-morrow, wnen the previous ques
tion will be called early in the session
and the House, at 4:25 adjourned.
Desperate Strikers They Stop a Train,
Board it and Beat a Nomberof Work
menA Judge Seriously Wounded.
Chicago, Illinois, June 2, 1882.
The Joliet iron and steel works had a
gang of twenty non-union men, some
colored, unloading iron ore at their
docks here yesterday. Last evening
they got on board the Chicago and Al
ton train to go to .To'iet. When the
train stopped at the Pan Handle ross-
ing it was surrounded by about fifty
striking iron workers and theirfnends,
tour or hve of whom jumped on the en
gine, presented revolvers and prevent
ed the engineer from starting again.
Another detachment entered the train
and pulled out all the workmen thev
could recognize. The remainder of the
crowd took them, beat, kicked and
stamped upon them, and injured them
Many stones were thrown and shots
fired. One shot took effect in the groin
of Judge Pillsbury, of the Illinois Ap
pellate Court, inflicting a wound which
it is feared will prove fatal.
