in his vindication says: "The sensa

unjust as they are untrue. Secretary
Kirkwood is not inclined to sign papers
with tho contents of which ho Is not
acquainted; but oven with this circum
spection on his part the department is
well managed, and, though it may be a
little behind in tho current routine,
tho fault is with the greedy olllce
seekers, and not from the lack of exe
cutive abilities in tho chief,"

On tills liberal national principlcnlouc,

the Republicans of tho country and of
Virginia should unite with Mahone
in opposition to Bourbon rule. Mahono
represents tho opposition to those
principles against which the Republi
can party has hi en contending." And
Congressman Ilazelton, of "Wisconsin,
said: "I have not examined into tho
local political diffeiences in Virginia,
and know nothing of tho merits of the
questions which divide tliem ; but I do
say that the Republican and Readjust
ees of Virginia uio naturally allies, for
tho reason that one of the principles of
tho Republican party is a free ballot
and a fair count. Muhono has asserted
that ho favors this principle, and there
by takes isHiio with the Hourbons. In
this tho Republican party stands with
him, and can give him theirsupport."

different aspirants for tho suffrage of

menu It shows not only the result of
tho election of 1HS0, but tho result as
well of tho election of 1878. Tho Re
publican, Democratic and (Jreenbaek
vote for the two elections is presented
separately and comparisons made of
gains or losses of tho different imrties.
Total voles are also the subject of com
parison, and this oxhaustlvo showing
is made of every congressional district
in the Union by counties. Tho book is
one of one hundred and twelve pages.

The decision is to tho effect that in try
ing u Mormon for polygamy, none of
his wives, if ho has a scoie, can bo
willed jls witnesses against him, bo
cause if they claim to have been
married to him they am jutnut funic,
by common and statue law, within the
prohibition that excludes tho testimony
of tho wife against her husband in
criminal cases. The absurditv of tho
conclusion is not a new thing in juris
prudence. It suggests, of course, that
tho common law principle is wrong, or
that the process of reasoning by which
our higest court applies it to all the
illegal wives a man may claim to have,
or who may claim to own him as a
husband, is faulty. Probably tho
latter is tho case. Common law Is
usually sound, but Its interpretation
occasionally makes it assumon grotes
quo aspect, as in this case. Mute
