General Johnson, of California, on

that Congress might pass a law for

THE POLITICAL SPEAK EAST
The Washington Post, of March
4, has a leader on what it terms
"Tne Political Speak Easy." It
"Onrprnnr Rnina' innncnral ad
dress is not pleasing to the Demo
cratic press. The Governor's ac
knowledgment that he was not
elected on strict party issnes, and
his announcement that he intends
to be very liberal in his administra
tion is not what was expected of
bim. In other words, the Demo
cratic press would have Iowa's new
Democratic Governor boldly assert
Democratic principles, and not re
sort to the "speak easy'' methods
to curry favor with the opposition."
A great many of those who voted
for Governor Boies were Republi
cans, and had been Republicans
all their lives. It would have been
very ungenerous, not to say an
gentlemanly, for the Governor to
have anathematized those to
whom he was indebted for his elec
tion. He conducted his caavass
npon the idea that a great many
of those who had been Republicans
would vote for him, otherwise his
canvass wonld have been senseless,
for from the beginning Iowa had
been a Republican State. Now be
cause the Governor is conrteous to
those who left the Republican colors
an i mustered under the Democratic
flag, he is called a ''Speak Easy,"
and we are told that be was not
elected on "strict Democratic prin
ciples." We fail to see anything in the
inaugural address of Governor
Boies that does not accord with
strict Democratic principles. It is
a straightforward, manly State
paper, courteous in tone and de
voted to the interests of the people
Many of us remember when the
flag of the gallant old Whig party
was withdrawn from the political
field, the followers of Henry Clay
in the South came trooping to the
Democratic lines. They came, not as
the conquered come, but as heroic
patriots to join in holy alliance
with their Democratic brethren in
defense of their homes, their honor
and their liberties. Forgetting
past differences, they formed the
body-guard that stood by the Con
stitution and the Union and de
fended them at all hazards and to
the last extremity.
As the Jackson Democrats wel
comed -the- Clay Whigs, so the
Democrats of today are ready to
welcome those Republicans who
swear allegiance to a restored
Union, dispensing its blessings to
all citizens of the Republic.
It is in this way only that the
Democracy can hope to win. Any
other policy bars the gates against
repentant Republic ins, and thestilU

The Senate of the United States

It seems never to have occurred
to these Senators that the fault is
with themselves. Some Senators
are like old boats, that are leaky ;
and others are like vessels so full j
that they run over.
Now suppose instead of assailing
newspapers, the Senate hold an ex
perience meeting in which every
Senator is bound on honor to tell
all he knows, then perhaps the
truth will be known as to how the
proceedings of secret sessions be
come known to the public.
The press is a mighty power,
but no journalist has ever &ir
sumed to know by intuition the
doings of men locked in the re
cesses of the Senate chamber. Re
porters are shrrp fellows, but none
of them profess to be able to go
through a key-hole and remain
incognito during a session of the
Nothing can be known of the
proceedings of secret sessions of
the Senate, but that which is re

The people are becoming tired of
secret sessions of the Senate. They
cannot see the necessity of keeping
from the people a full knowledge of
the affairs of the peo.jle. If this

Men are . often mistaken as to

At college he bore off the medal for

Important Supreme Conrt Decision.
Raleigh, N. C., March 8. The Su
preme Court, this evening, decided sA
most important case that of Redmond
versus the town of Tarboro. The point
involved was whether or not that sec
tion of the Constitution, which provides
that all taxes levied by any county,
city, town or township, shall be uniform
and ad valorem upon all property in
the same, except properly exempted by
the Constitution, including moneys.
credits, investments, etc, or whether
it applies only to particular subjects,
wnicb may be selected by the Legisla
ture for taxation. The Court holds that
it includes all solvent credits, invest
ments, money, etc. This overrules the
case of Pullen versus Raleigh, rendered
some years ago.

The Teller of a Louisville Bank De
camps With a Large Amount of
Louisville, March 4. William H.
Pope, teller of the Louisville City Bank,
a trusted employe, a man of seeming
good habits, and a frequenter of the
best social circles of this city, is gone.
His absence at the bank yesterday at
first excited no suspicion, as it was
supposed be was at his sick sister's bed
side, or in the country detained by tne
flood. When no word waa received at
1.80 o'clock the President, James S.
Spirtleff, vice-Preeident James F.
Lerbcb, and Cashier W. a. Parker be
came suspicious. They opened the
vault and a hasty examination showed
that somewhere between $40,000 and
$60,000 waa missing, all in larga bills.
The bulk of gold and silver coin and
small bills were left intact. It will re
quire an examination to state the entire
amount that Pope took with him. At
first his friends would not believe that
Pope had gone wrong. The search by
the Bank officials soon left no doubt
about the matter, and his friends began
to search for hi,m, thinking possibly he
waa still in the city. He could not be
fouhd, and soon the reporters dis
covered the bank robbery. As usual
they fnrniehed the detectives with the
first clue, and learned that .Pope had
