omo of our exchanges seem to think
that the late decision of the Supreme
Court is to the effect that Connelly is free
for good and all. We digested the opin
ion. Such is not the effect of the de
cision. Connelly was -indie ted for env
bezzlement under sections 1,01.3 and 101G
of the Code. The Court holds that sec
tion 1,011 only punishes embezzlement
by:olIi'-ers of private corporations, and
1,0J6 punishes embezzlement by officers
of public funds onlv. As Connelly was
as a public; ofliccr for embezzling
funds, and embezzlement is a
, nut a common law offense, the
omission ran only be cured by the Legis
lature, 'l'iie court points out that lie may
still "be indicted under section 1 ,0iX) for
malfeasance in oliice, but that the present
indictment is for embezzlement and can

the recess shows the anxiety of the Re
publicans to carry out their programme
for seizing the contested seats.
The Boston Globe reports as follows the
expression of a leading Republican Con-
We must -have more votes, and we
must haye them soon. . At the present
moment wc could not get a quorum to
save our souls. If the Elections Com-
mittce could report immediately after the
holidays, we could railroad a lew ol tiie
cases through while the House is still
being run according to I Reed's rules of
The Republicans know that their ma-
,ioritv is at nresent practically a minor
ity. " The management of the House has
ih fact been taken out of their hands,
and ex-Speaker Carlisle from the floor
has exerted more influence over its pro
ceedings than the Speaker and his Chair
man of the Committee on ways and
Means together, irritated by their own
awkwardness and the lack of a working
majority, the Administration leaders
will stop at nothing to perpetrate the
great injustice they contemplate. They
must not be allowed to succeed. J nere
are occasions w e a raoiau ponev i
the only wise one. The Democrats must
stand out for their rights, resist aggres
sion upon the lawful representation in
the House, and be ready to resort to fili
bustering if necessary. The Albany
Argus agrees with the-Vtar as to the Dem
ocratic duty, and states the caso well in
"If it be necessary in tho cause of sim-
plo justice for the minority to resort to fil
ibustering, they should not hesitate to use
any weapon likely to enable them to check
usurpation and outrage on tho right of a
member to the scat to which he has been
fairly elected. Their opponents are un
scrupulous and regardless of precedents
or justice, and nothing can be gained by
yielding to them iu the slightest particu
lar. Ex-Speaker Carlisle is a capable,
fearless and experienced leader of the
uunority, and it every Democratic Rep
resentative will faithfully comply with
his instructions, ali will be well. Al
ready the scheme to give the Flections
Committee the right to sit during the
holiday racess, that a report might be
made in favor of unseating a number of
Democrats after the reassembling of the
House next month, has been bafllcd by
the vigilance of Mr. Carlisle and his as
sociates."' Even if it were necessary to do an un
popular thing and one in minor respects
hurtful to the public interest, it would be
right for the minority members to resort
to every legitimate expedient to prevent
a fraudulent change in the composition
of the House. But filibustering will not
be unpopular now if the majority Torccs
the minority to resort to it. Therepre
sentatiou of the majority of American
voters must be defended, and the people
understand the situation perfectly. The
Montana outrage lias openeel all eyes to
the nature of the Republicans' scheme to
strengthen themselves in both Houses of
Congress without regard to the wishes "of
constituencies. Not a single Democratic
seat should be surrendered, and no com
promises whatever should be made.
It is easily within the power of the mi
nority, by resolute adherence to a well
defined program, to compel the majority
to do justice and allow the rollcall of the
House' to stand as its fiiral membership.
When this joint conclusion is reached
legislation can properly proceed. If de
lay occurs in carrying out Republican
legislative plans, the country will not
sutler. The principal measure which the
majority members uow contemplate are
subversive of local self-government and
of our federal system. Their passage
would be an unmitigated disaster to the
country, and, above all things, the Dem
crats must not allow a single vote for
them to be gained. ,
In discharging the Democratic duty of
the hour, harmony among the members
of the party is the first requisite. Such
contentions as that of Saturday between
Mr. Mills and Mr. Hoi man are greatly to
be deprecated. It is only by forbearance
regarding lesser matters that the minor
ity can preserve that fraternal spirit
which is necessary to a compact and suc
