Scjixnn's last wish to secure the
passage of his civil rights bill, is in
:i fair way of realization. The bill
has been reiwrted back by tho
Senate Judiciary Committee with
some amendments. There is every
probability that the bill will now
pass both Houses of Congress.
The city of Cleveland furnishes a
fair specimen of what may be ac

The Democratic Governor of
"Wi-consln has followed in the foot
path of tho Republican Governor of
Nebraska in making his railitary
fctafl appointments. From an offi
cial order just promulgated, we find
that Governor Taylor of "Wisconsin
has appointed one Adjutant Gen
eral, one Quartermaster General and
one Surgeon General, each with tho
rank of Brigadier General; also
one Military Secretary with the
rank of Colonel, and eight Aides de
Camp, each with the rank of
Colonel. This leaves the Nebraska

Tire St. Louis Democrat thinks
we bhould not be too proud of tho
corruptions, frauds, and stealings
that happen under our republican
institutions. In Ilamburg, Ger
many, the government detectives
have recently discovered Custom
house frauds that make ours, about
which bo much noise is
now being raised, appear
rather contemptible. Tho steal
ings in the case of on firm
alone amounted to about eight hun
dred thousand dollars every year,
and have been carried on for a num
ber of years. The raco of Tweods,
Fauborns, Jaynes, etc., seems,
therefore, to prosper quite as well
under imperial as republican rule.
According to our lastest a lvices
from the National Capital, the pros
pect for solving the cheap transpor
tation problem through Congres
sional legislation is not very encour
aging. The transportation bill
passed by the House some two weeks
ago still remains unacted on in the
Senate Committee, to which it was
referred. The friends of the measure
entertain serious doubts that tho
bill could bo passed through
the Senate, even if the committee
should report favorably on it. After
collecting two volumes of evidence
on the subject of transportation the
select committee of the Senate
seem to incline against all railway
projects and in favor of another all
water route. It is not at all prob
able that even this project will
secure a majority vote in the Senate.
The most important event of the
first session of tho forty-third
Congress transpired Tuesday in the
pa&saja of the Senate finance bill.
It passed in the face of the severe
criticism and bitter denunciation
of leading metropolitan newspapers,
and in spite of the protests and op
position of the men who manage
und control the capital at the great
money centers; and now tho tel
egraph announces that this triumph
of the inflationists i, after all, to
be rather barren. The comptroller
of the currency, General Knox,
who has carefully studied tho
provisions of the bill is said to havo
oijenly declared that tho practical
oporations of the bill will cause a
contraction instead of an inflation
of the currency volume. It is fur
thermore announced that in view of
this declaration, the President will
fign the bill. Should these state
ments provo true, tho framers
nnd advocates of the bill will
hardly reccivo the encomiums they
anticipated from their constituents.
"With an assured majority hi both
Houses it is hardly to be expected
that the inflationists would rest
their case on the mere glory of hav
ing successfully passed ubill that fails
to carry out their object. If Comp
troller Knox's construction of the
Senaje Finance bill, proves correct,
the House bill embodying free bank
ing, will, in all probability, be push
ed through to cover defects.
The cry of "fraud" is heard in
the land. If there -was any fraud,
in the counting of ballots it was not
on the aide of Mr. Johnson either
in the second or any other "Ward.
The ry of fraud would not have
been heard In or out of the land had
not the peculiar circumstances Ir this
case naturally rendered it suspicious;
with a majority of Democratic judges
appointed by a Democratic Mayor
there certainly should have been
no reason to suspect any intentional
fraud in Mr. Johnson's count
These judges and clerks were under
oath, and their returns are entitled
to more weight than any recount
conducted several days after the bal
lots had passed out of their hands.
"Will the Herald inform us why all
the mistakes in counting were in
favor of Mr. Johnson ? "Why shoud
not Mr. Baumer have giined at
least a vote or two in some of the
On Friday afternoon last, Mr.
Johnson personally assured us that
he did not intend to contest Ball
mer's election. He only proposed
to request tho Council to recount tho
ballots of the First Ward. Tho
Council met on the samo evening,
and Mr. Johnson sent in a petition
which did not contain one word
about recounting the vote, but mere
ly intimated an intention to contest
Baumer's election. So much for
falsehood number one. "When the
contestants met before their notary
on Saturday, Mr. Johnson again
declared that he only desired to re
count the First "Ward ballots. That
count was finally made, and Mr.
Johnson, by hard scratching, gained
only one vote, leaving Baumer still
in the majority. This was Saturday
evening. On Monday morning Mr.
Johnson insisted on recounting the
Second "Ward, which onco more
gave the lie to his former assertions.
This time, however, ho was not to
be disappointed. He gained seven
votes over Baumer, and to all in
tents and purposes ho had accom
plished his object Can anybody
swear that nobody, excepting Kit-ton-the
Clerk, could have obtained
access to the ballot boxes during
that interval ?

Improvements in Cavalry Equip
ments. After a session of two months at
Fort Leavenworth, the Board of
Army officers appointed to report
upon cavalry equipments, met at
Watervliet Arsenal, West Troy, on
the 25th of Maroh. The Board has
about completed its labors, and will
soon make its report to the War De
partment This is the first Board
on cavalry accoutrements ordered
during the past 25 years. It has
adopted several improvements, the
most important ofwhicli aro given
as follows in the Troy Press.
Tho saddle has boon, greatly im
preved. The ground-work is the
McCIellan saddle, but the tree is
hereafter to be made in strict accord
ance with the explicit measure
ments, and not to be varied slightly,
according to the taste of the maker,
as heretofore. Instead of the saddle-bags
now in use, a larger bag
has been adopted, which will carry
five day's rations, thus doing away
with the haversack for cavalry. A
dark blue saddle-cloth has boon
adopted. The bit has been materi
ally changed, and is a curb bit of
bright shear steel, made somewhat
after the stylo of tho English Chif
fany bit The portable forge and
blacksmith and saddler tools and
materials for cavalry, which have
heretofore been carried in soparato
boxes, have now been neatly and
compactly arranged to be carried in
a two-wheel vehicle after th.e pat
tern used in the Prussian cavalry.
This forgo wagon is so arranged that
ono horse goes in shafts, and at
tached to the whlfiletrees. Tho
ammunition is to be carried on tho
soldier's belt In a double row of cart
ridge loops which can be removed at
pleasure, and so arranged as to
equalize the weight. By this ar
rangement a soldier can carry a
larger amount of ammunition than
heretofore. An improvement has
been made In "side lines" for secur
ing horses while herding upon the
prairies. The strap extends from
tho front to the hind leg on the same
side, so that tho horse cannot run.
Tho Board will also settle the
amount of material (leather, sew
ing materials, etc.) to be issued to
a troop each half year. The ques
tion of the horse-shoe will be deci
ded in a few da3's. The comman
dant at Springfield Armory lias al

, Franking Privilege.
The Senate yesterday debated the
question of the restoration of the
franking privilege. In our opinion,
it would be better to fully te3t the
experiment of paying on all matter
sent through the mails before repeal
ing the law. This supposed reform
was unquestionably demanded by
the people, and the Republican Na
tionalConvention pledged that party
to its consummation. The Repub
licans control both branches
of Congress. These hon
orable gentlemen can not,
therefore, without a breach of fidel
ity to their political associates, re
turn to the use of official franks
before the people become satisfied
that the repeal of the privilege was
unwise. But Senators and Repre
sentatives ought not to be required
to pay the postage on official matter
sent to and received by them
through tho mails out of their pri
vate means. Their salaries have
been fixed at a sum supposed to be
oareiy sumcient to pay tne reason
able value of their services. Many
think the pay at present too small.
Let this be as it may, tho necessary
expenses incurred by them on ac
count of postages on mail
matter relating exclusively
to the public interests and the
discharge of their official
duties ought not to be deducted
from their salaries. It would not
be equitable. It would reduce the
pay of some. Senators and Repre
sentatives tenfold more than that of
others, and, as a rule, the burden
thus imposed would be greatest on
those who perform the most official
labor. It is clear, therefore, that if
the compensation is now more than
enough for the services performed,
compelling these officials to reduce
it by the amount of the postages
each may pay on official matter
would not be equitable.
It does not, however, follow that
the frank should be again legalized.
It would be a great saving of the
time of these national legislators, it
Is presumed, to use envelopes with
an official stamp, as in the Depart
ments. They can be printed much
faster than Senators and Represen
tatives can write their names on
official packages. On the other
hand, there is no reason why a Con
gressman should notpaythe postage
on his private correspondence like
other mortals. Washington Chronicle.

A significant and complimentary
indication of Gov. Howard's pop
ularity in Rhode Island is found in
the fact that he received every voto
cast for Governor in ten towns, in
cluding his own, at the recent elec
tion. That Henry Clay Dean is not
dead, as was recently reported, is
evidenced by the fact that one even
ing last week he made a strong tem
perance speech at Chariton, Iowa,
which the Patriot saj-s was "in his
inimitable stylo, with occassional
out-croppings of the iniquitous sen
timents that have placed him in an
unfavorable position before the peo
