ATTORNEY GENERAL HARMAN
MAKES HIS REPORT.
Abuse of the Fco System rot Too Early
to I'ass Judgment on tire Ivew System
, of Courts In tire Indian Territory-
Prompt Action Urged in the Pacific
Ilaliroad Cases-Tho Debi Decision Im-
, The Attorney General's Report.
WASHINGTON , Dec. 7.-AttorneyGen-
al Harmon , in his annual report to
( Congress , shows that the number of
criminal cases pending in the Fcdcral
courts July 1 , 1895 , was 1,403 , an increase -
crease in two years of more than
; 3,000 , though in 1895 : 5,919 cases were
disposed of , as compared with 21,744
in 1SJi. The convictions during the
year are shown to have been 60 per
cent of the whole number , and in
Government civil cases the percentage
i of judgments in favor of the United
- states was 6e , as compared with 40 in
1891 , and 47 in 1593. The expenses of
' , the Federal courts have steadily increased -
creased from $3,864,808 in 1858 to
$3U2S,223 in 1eOL This is accounted
for in part by the fact that since 18 ° 5 ,
' the number of places for holding Federal -
' eral courts has increased from 186 to
2 " 7
The Attorney General says it is yet
too soon to fairly pass judgment on
- . ' - the new system of courts for the Indian -
dian territory , it having been in operation -
ation only since last March , but he
calls attention to the fact that next
' September the jurisdiction of the
courts of the Eastern district of Texas
' 1 anii the 1Ycstern district of Arkansas
over the Indian Territory will entirely
cease , and a large measure of business
. , in the courts of the Territory will
necessarily result. For this reason he
. recommends that immediate appro-
x priations be made for building at least
one snilieicnt jail in eachh of the three
The Attorney General calls special
attention to the fee system in federal
courts and says that excessive and illegal -
legal charges can in some measure be
: u oidcd by watchfulness and laborious
investigation , but arrests and prosecu-
Lions on frivolous charges and flimsy
, proof , to which part of the increasing
expenses of the federal courts arc due ,
cannot be prevented by the Depart-
] gent of Justice. This can be accom
pushed only by abolishing the sys-
tent which , by making the fees of coin-
missioners , marshals , clerks and attor-
- ness the source of their compensation ,
presents a constant inducement to
. unnecessary arrests and litigation
and annoyance and loss of dine on
. those involved , as , parties or witnesses ,
and indirectly works both material
and moral injury to the public. Besides -
sides , a class of professional witnesses
-and informers grows up in many sections -
tions , to the scandal of the administration -
tration of justice. There is now no
r : limit to the number of commissioners
. - - which the courts may appoint , and
suggests that the number be limited
by law. Upon the abolition of the fee
a - system , he says , the number might be
largely reduced , and many advantages
would be gained by giving them final
jurisdiction of petty offenses.
The Attorney General calls attention -
tion to the fact that too much of the
time of the supreme court is occupied
by criminal appeals , and suggests that
such appeals be disallowed , save' in
capital cases , by amending the act of
Narch 3 , ISOI , sons to omit the mention -
tion of "other infamous" crimes. This
would operate to give the circuit
courts of appeal jurisdiction which
& would be final of all criminal cases
. other than capital , subject , however ,
to review by the supreme court in its
. discretion by writ of certiorari ,
: . Prompt action is urged toward work-
. lug out the solution of the problem
presented by the government's relation -
tion to the Central and Union Pacific
railways , and , as it may be necessary
or advisable for the government to institute -
stitute proceedings against one or
both of these companies , lie shows the
necessity of a law giving some court
. in the District of Columbia jurisdiction -
tion of the entire property and all of
the properties in interest. lie urges
the imperative demand for the erection -
. ' tion of at least one penitentiary in a
Southern State for the confinement of
- convicts from the Southern districts.
' The Attorney General speaks briefly
of the decision of the Supreme court
in the Debs contempt case and says
that the priaCiples established by the
' , opinion are of the highest value and
importance. The jurisdiction of the
courts to issue and enforce injunctions
against interference with interstate
commerce and the passage of mails
was fully maintained , and it was held
that the action of the courts in such
cases was not open to review on habeas

Salisbury's may be regarded as very
clever , for he can easily find precedents -
cedents to justify his request that the
British case be considered on its ,
merits. As this is all new to this
government , a compliance with
the request would involve
much patient research and comparison -
parison of authorities , maps and sur-
veys. This is calculated to consume a
great deal of time and carry the issue
along to a period when perhaps Great

Our Representatives In the National

Work During the Scislon.

the congress of the
United States assembles -
sembles , and many
of the members
were present at the
delivery of this sermon -
mon , Dr. Talmage
took a most appropriate -
priate theme showing -
ing that In all their
work they might
realize that iod has always been on
the side of this nation. Text : II Kings ,
vi : 17 , "And the Lord opened the eyes
of the young man and he saw ; and behold -
hold , the mountain was full of horses
and chariots of fire round about Elisha '
The American , congress is assem-
bling. Arriving or already arrived are
the representatives of all sections of
this beloved land. Let us welcome
them with prayers and benedictions.
A nobler group of men never entered
Washington than those who will tomorrow -
morrow take their places in the senate
chamber and the house of representa-
tives. Whether they come alone , or
leave their families at the homestead
far away , may the blessing of the
Eternal God be upon them ! We invite
them to our churches , ana together ,
they in political spheres , and we in re-
liglous circles , will give the coming
months to consideration of the best interests -
terests of thiscountry which God has
blessed so much in the past that I
propose to show you and show them
so far as I may now reach their ear , or
to-morrow their eye through the printing -
ing press , that God will be with them
to help them as in the text lie filled the
mountains with help for Elisha.
As It cost England many regiments
and two million dollars a year to keep
safely a troublesome captive at St.
Helena , so the king of Syria sends out
a whole army to capture one minister
of religion-perhaps 50,000 men-to
take Elisha. During the night the army
of Syrians came around the village of
Dothan where the prophet was stay-
Ing. At early daybreak the manservant -
vant of Elislga rushed in and said :
"What shall we do ? there is a whole
army come to destroy you ! We must
die ! We must die ! " But Elisha was
not scared a bit , for he looked up and
saw the mountains all around full of
supernatural forces , and he knew that
if there were 50,000 Syrians against him
there were 100,000 angels for him ; and
in answer to the prophet's prayer in
behalf of his affrighted man-servant ,
the young man saw it too. Horses of
fire harnessed to chariots of fire , and
drivers of fire pulling reins of fire on
bits of fire , and warriors of fire with
brandished swords of fire , and the brilliance -
liance of that morning sunrise was
eclipsed by the galloping splendors of
the celestial cavalcade. "And the Lord
opened the eyes of the young man ; and
he saw : and behold the mountain was
full of horses and chariots of fire round
about Elisha. " I speak of the upper
forces of the text that are to fight on
our side as a nation. If all the low levels
are filled with armed threats , I have to
tell you that the mountains of our hope
and courage and faith are full of the
horses and chariots of Divine rescue.
You will notice that the Divine equipage -
age is always represented as a chariot
of fire. Ezekiel and. Isaiah and John ,
when they come to describe the Divine
equipage always represent it as a
wheeled , a harnessed , an upholstered
conflagration. It is not a chariot like
kings and conquerors of earth mount ,
but an organized and compressed fire.
That means purity , justice , chastisement -
ment , deliverance through burning es-
capes. Chariot of rescue ? yes , but a
chariot of fire. All our national disen-
thralments have been through scorchIng -
Ing agonies and red disasters. Through
tribulation the individual rises.
Through tribulation nations rise.
Chariots of rescue , but chariots of fire.
But how do I know that this Divine
equipage is on the side of our Institutions -
tions ? I know it by the history of the
last one hundred and nineteen years.
The American revolution started from
the pen of James Hancock in Independence -
pendence hall in 1776. The colonies ,
without ships , without ammunition ,
without guns , without trained warriors ,
without money , without prestige. . On
the other side , tine mightiest nation of
the earth , the largest armies , the grandest -
est navies , and the most distinguished
commanders , and resources inexhaustible -
ble , and nearly all nations ready to buck
them up in the fight. Nothing , as
The cause of the American colonies ,
which started at zero , dropped still
lower through the quarreling of the
generals , and through the jealousies at
small successes , and through the winters -
ters which surpassed all predecessors
in depth of snow and horrors of con-
gealment. Elislga surrounded by the
whole Syrian army did not seem to be
worse off than did the thirteen colonies
encompassed and overshadowed by
foreign assault. What decided the contest -
test in our favor ? The upper forces ,
the upper armies. The Green and
White mountains of New England , the
highlands along the Hudson , the mountains -
tains of Virginia , all the Appalachian
ranges were full of reinforcements
which the young man Washington say ;
by faith ; and his men endured the
frozen feet , and the gangrened wounds ,
and the exhausting hunger , and the
long march , because "the Lord opened
the eyes of the young man ; and he saw :
and behold , the mountains were full of
horses and chariots of fire round about
Elisha , " Washington himself was a
- , - - - - - - - - _ . -
miracle. What Josbua was in sacred
history , the first American president
was In secular history. A thousand
other men excelled him fa different
things , but he excelled them all in
roundness and completeness of charac-
ter. The world never saw his like ,
and probably never will see his like
again , because there probably never
will be such an exigency. He was let
down a Divine Interposition. He was
from God direct. -
I do not know how many can read
the history of those times without ad-
witting the contest was decided by the
upper forces. Then , in 1361 , when our
civil war opened , many at the North
and at the South pronounced it national -
al suicide. It was not courage against
cowardice , It was not wealth against
poverty , it was not large states against
small states. It was heroism against
heroism , it was the resources of many
generations against the resources of
generations , it was the prayer of the
North against the prayer of the South ,
it was one-half of the nation in armed
wrath , meeting the other half of the
nation in armed indignation. What
could come but extermination ?
At the opening of the war the com-
mander-n-chief ! of the United States
forces was a man who had been great
in battle , but old age had come , with
many infirmities , and he had a right
to quietude. He could not mount a
horse and he rode on the battle-field in
a carriage , asking the driver not to jolt
it too much. During the most of the
four years of the contest , on the Southern -
ern side , was a man in mid-life , who
had in his veins the blood of many
generations of warriors , himself one of
the heroes of the Cherubusco and Cerro
Gordo , Contreras and ChapuItepec. As
the years passed on and the scroll of
carnage unrolled there came out from
both sides a heroism and a strength
and a determination that the world had
never seen marshaled. And what but
extermination could come when Philip
Sheridan and Stonewall Jackson met
and Nathaniel Lyon and Sydney Johnson -
son rode in from the North and So.itli ,
and Grant and Lee , the two thunderbolts -
bolts of batt'.e , clashed ? Yet , we are a
nation , and yet we are at peace. Earthly -
ly courage did not decide the conflict.
The upper forces of the text. They tell
us there was a battle fought above the
clouds on Lookout mountain ; but there
was something higher than that.
Again the horses and chariots of God
came to the rescue of the nation in 1876
at the close of the presidential election
famous for ferocity. A darker cloud
yet settled down upon this nation. The
result of the election was in dispute ,
and revolution , not between two or
three sections , but revolution in every
town and village and city of the United
States seemed imminent. The prospect -
pect was that New York would throttle
New York , and New Orleans would grip
New Orleans , and Boston , Boston , and
Savannah , Savannah , and Washington ,
Washington. Some said Mr. Tilden was
elected ; others said Mr. Hayes was
elected ; and how near we came to universal -
versal mazsacre , some of us guessed ,
but only God knew. I ascribe our escape -
cape net to the honesty and righteousness -
ness of infuriated politicians , but I ascribe -
cribe it to the upper forces of the text.
Chariots of mercy rolled in , and though
the wheels were not heard , and the
flash was not seen , yet all through the
mountains of the North and the South
and the East and the West ; though the
hoofs did not clatter , the cavalry of
God galloped by. I tell you God is the
friend of this nation. In the awful excitement -
citement at the massacre of Lincoln ,
when there was a prospect that greater -
er slauehter would opei3 upon this nation -
tion , God hushed the tempest. In the
awful excitement at the time of Gar-
field's assassination , God put his foot
on the neck of the cyclone. To prove
God is on the side of this nation I argue
from the last eight or nine great national -
tional harvests , and from the national
health of the last quarter of a century ,
epidemics very exceptional , and from
the great revivals of religion , and from
the spreading of the Church of God ,
and from the continent blossoming with
asylums and reformatory institutions ,
and from the Edenization which promises -
ises that this whole land is to be a
paradise where God shall walk.
I am encouraged more than I can
tell you as I see the regiments wheeling
down the sky , and my jeremiads turn
into doxologies , and that which was the
Good Friday of the nation's crucifixion
becomes the Easter morn of its res-
urrection. Of course , God works
through human instrumentalities , and
this national betterment is to come
among other things through a scrutinized -
ized ballot box. By the law of registration -
tion it is almost impossible now to
have illegc : voting. There was a tires
-you and I remember It very well-
when droves of vagabonds wandered -
dered up and c : era on election -
tion day and from poll to
poll , and voted here , and voted there ,
and voted everywhere , and there was
no challenge ; or , if there were , it
amounted to nothing , because nothing
could so suddenly be proved upon the
vagabonds. Now , in. e eery well-organ-
ized neighborhood , every voter is
watched with severest scrutiny. If I
am in a region where I am allowed a
vote , I must tell the registrar my name ,
and how old I am , and how long I have
resided in the state , and how long I
have resided in the ward or the township -
ship , and if I misrepresent , fifty witnesses -
nesses will rise and shut me out from
the ballot-box. Is not that a great advance -
vance ? And then notice the law that
prohibits a man voting if he has bet on
the election. A step further needs to
be taken , and that man forbidden a
vote who has offered or taken a bribe ,
whether it be in the shape of a free
drink , or cash paid down , the suspicious
cases obliged to put their hand on the
Bible and swear their vote in if they
vote at all. So , through the sacred
chest of our nation's suffrage , redemption -
tion will come ,
I have not in my mind a.shadow of
disheartment as large as the shadow of
a house-fly's wing. My faith Is in the
upper forces , the upper armies of thoi
text. God is not dead. The chariots
are not unwhecled. If you would only
pray more , and wash your eyes in the
cool , bright water fresh from the well
of Christian reform , it would be said of
you , as o1 this one of the text : "The
Lord opened the eyes of the young man ,
and he saw ; and behold the mountain
was full of horses and chariots o1 fire
round about Elisha. "
Have you any doubt about the need
of the Christian religion to purify and
make decent American politics ? At
every yearly or quadrennial election we
have in this country great manufac-
tories-manufactories of lies ; and they
are run day and night , and they turn
out half a dozen a day , allequipped and
ready for full sailing. Large lies and
small lies. Lies private and lies public
and lies prurient. Lies cut bias , and
lies cut diagonal. Lqng-llmbed lies ,
and lies with double back action. Liea
complimentary , and lies defamatory.
Lies that some people believe , and lies
that all people believe , and lies that
nobody believes. Lies with humps like
camels and scales like crocodiles , and
necks as long as storks' , and feet as
swift as an antelope's , and stings like
adders. Lies raw and scolloped and
panned and stewed. Crawling lies and
jumping lies and soaring lies. Lies
with attachment screws and rulers and
braiders and ready-wound bobbins.
Lies by Christian people who never lie
except during elections , and lies by people -
ple who always lie , but beat themselves
in a presidential campaign.
I confess , I am ashamed to have a for-
eigner. ' visit this country in such times.
I should think he would stand dazed ,
his hand on his pocket-book , and dare
not go out nights. What will the hundreds -
dreds of thousands of foreigners who
come here to live think of us ? What a
disgust they must have for the land of
their adoption ! The only good thing
about it is , many of them cannot understand -
stand the English language. But I suppose -
pose the German and Italian and Swedish -
ish and French papers translate it all ,
and peddle out the infernal stuff to the
Nothing' but Christianity will ever
atop such a flood of indecency. The
Christian religion .will speak after
awhile. The billingsgate and low scandal -
dal through which wu wade every year
or every four years must be rebuked
by that religion which speaks from its
two great mountains , from the one
mountain intoning the command ,
"Thou shalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor , " and from the
other mount making plea for kindness
and blessing rather than cursing. Yes ,
we are going to have a national reli-
gion. There are two kinds of national
religion. The one is supported by the
state , and is a matter of human politics ,
and it has great patronage , and under it
men will struggle for prominence without -
out reference to qualifications , and its
archbishop is supported by a salary of
$75,000 a year , and there are great cathedrals -
edrals , with all the machinery of music
and canonicals , and room for a thousand -
sand people , yet an audience of fifty
people , or twenty people , or ten , or two.
We want no such religion as that , no
such national religion ; but we want
this kind of national religion-the vast m
majority of the people converted and .
evangelized , and then they will manage -
age the secular as well as the religious.
Do you say that this is impracticable ?
No. The time is coming just as certainly -
tainly as there is a God , and that this
is his Book , and that he has the
strength and the honesty to fulfil his
