that the democratic legislature of Ohio
baut three years ago created the
Nineteenth congretsional district , for

creating this district was repealed by

Eighteenth district ceased to exist
ud a nor- district was formed , con-
nbt : g of Asbtabula , Like , Geauga ,
Truniljull and Portage counties.
5lahoaing county was placed in an
other district. The election which
returned Mr. Taylor was held in the
old Eighteenth district , which is now
defunct. As there is no snch district
there can bo no law recognlzicg the
validity of the election of a repre
sentative therein. Mr. Hurd does

XJongross nhould long ago hare
Go vised some practical plan for the
icliof of the overburdened docket.
Two such plans have been proposed
und have met with many adherents
among the members of the bar , and as
t any opponents. The first contem
plates an enlargement of the supreme
> * eoch by increasing the number of its
mamburs and their division into two
c'l&mbera. Between these chambers
u is proposed to divide all cases on
tbo calendar according to their
o * scs , aicigning equity , admiral-
t' , and patent cases to one-
0 irvtnbar and common law csc ! <
t ) the other. All cases involving con-
t. itullonnl quoetlons , under this plan ,
would be brouzht before both bodies
uiitadintoa full bench , and shoul
HP chamber on other questions b
equally divided on other cases thc
ca would be referred to the ful
hunch for reargumont and a decisio :
by a majority.
The cthor plan proposes no enlarge
uient of the supreme bench as
present constituted , but advises th
iacrcaso of circuit judges , in th
present circuits ; the institution <
general terms in each circuit ; the pro
1 ibition of disputed questions of fuc
from passing above thcso genera
terms , or of any question of law , savi
of constitutional law , unless th
amount in controversy exceeds ten
thousand dollars in value ( the preaen
limit is five thousand ) , or unless
raijority of the judges of the gen
tiitil term shall certify it up.
It is believed by members of th
bar that the settlement of every qucs
lion tf fact below the supreme cour
vould relieve that court of moro than
a third of its present labors , that an
examination of the reports bnows a1
least that proportion of its busines
"rising upon mixed iseuoa of fact and
law , that this relief would enable tb
o'urt to keep abreast of the increasing
vjlume of business consequent to the
growth of the country for many years
T t come , and that the additional f ea-
lures of relief which are indicated
would enable it soon to wipe off the
arrears from its heavy cabndar.
Bath the-e plans hate serious ob
jections. In the first , the question
vroufd ariea whether the constitution
which provide * that "the judicial
pawcr of the United States shall be
vested in one supreme cturt , " admits
ni the final decision of any class of
oases by a section or chamber of that
> nurt. To the second plan thu ob-
j -ction would doubtless be raised that
t would make the supreme court a
Tibanal only for the rich and would
debar the poor from its benefits.

PRESIDENT HAYES1 VALE-
President Fsy&a' valedictory is B
creditable production , that will com
pare favorably in diction with any
state paper that ha over cma--J
nated from ary 'American Presi
dent. It is a comprehensive review -
view of our foreign . relations
and domestic * affair * , coupled witt
many wholesome recommendations to
the national legislature on matters de
manding congressional action. The
presidents views on civil service re
form are sound , but the present ad
ministration has failed lamentably Jn
the practical execution of his views.
The president insiatsthattheexeontiTa
must be divorced from congress in the.
distribution of federal patronage , but
nearly every appointment made by
President Hayes haa been dictated or
begged by senators and congressmen. |
It is eminently proper that depart
ment clerks shall undergo competitive
eraminationbut the consuls , ministers
and plenipotentiaries that represent
this nation abroad , and the heads of
bureaus and departments are all
sulectcd without regard to fitness
ma nly as rewards for political in-
enca at the solicitation of congress
men and senators.
The presidents views on our nation
al GznnceB are correct in the abstract
but we should most decidedly object
to their being carried out with regard
to our currency. The president re
commends the retirement of all legal
tender greenbacks ; a change in the
standard silver dollar to exact bullion
valuation and the recoinageof tbo sil
ver dol'arg already issued. Neither
of theie recommendations could be
carried into effect without serious
detriment to the producing and indus
The retirement of three hundred and
fifty millions of greenbacks would
create a stringency in the money mar
ket , nnd no interest-bearing demand
note iEsuod by the government could
afford a suitable substitute for the
greenback currency. Wo can conceive
of no sound reason why the govern
ment should tax the people twelve or
fifteen millions a year to meet inter
est on the bonds with which these
greenbacks would have to bo pur
chased. Another reason why we should
opposethoretircmentof the greenbacks
is that the substitution of national
bank currency would deprive the people
ple of the benefit of the paper cur
rency that is destroyed by fire , lost at
sea or otherwise. The president in
sists that the only way to make the
silver dollar an honest dollar is to
coin it out of one dollar'o worth of
bullion , and ho falls into the error of
the Rolditos , that because more than
one-half of the silver dollars coined
in the last two years remain in the
treasury the silver dollar is not a good
circulating medium , end can only be
come nseful as such when it will sell
for ono collar in the melting pot.
The president ought to know enough
to know that metal currency is not a
good circulating mediuaa , but is the
only hue basis for & stable pa
per currency. Of the gold coined
by the government only a very
small percentage is factual nircula *
tion. The bulk remains in our
national treasury or the vaults of our
banks. The twenty-five millions of
silver dollars put in active circulation
during the past two years have been
handled and rehandled a thousand
times where the gold coined during
that period has been handled once.
Bat suppose we increase the weight ot
the standard silver dollar to actual
bullion value of one hundred cents
what advantage will acoruo from it ?
Will the heavier dollars afford
a better circulating medium than the
lighter dollar ? Suppose Germany
should decide to re-establish the sil
ver basis and an increased demand for
silver should corao from India , GO
that the old market rate for silver is
restored , the silver dollar would
then become marketable ) fo
one dollar and ten cents
ia tbo metal market , every silver del
ar in 1ho country would disappear
from circulation , and the "whole silvtr
djllar currency would soon bo export
oi to Europe and Asia. Is it not safer ,
en , to continue the present standard
silver dulhr , and let the people reap
; hs advantage of underweight.
Tnis view may not accord with
Wall street , but it represents the
sjntiroeut of the producing and in
dustrinl classes. Wa hare never fa
vored inflation , novcr advocated the
fallacies of irredeemable ) paper
currency , but we are most emphat-
cally opposed to any legislation that
will deprive us of the
egal lender greenback or withdraw
the silver dollar from circulation.
The best thing congress can do is to
et our currency severely alone. Oar
money is coed enough , and it cannot
ba improved oy currency tinkers.
The president's views on the Indian
question , and his recommendations
'or ' improving their condition meet our
approval. His desire to extirpate
polygamy is commendable , but the
measures he recommende are repug
nant to the spirit and letter of our
republican system of government.
In this republic every individual is
responsible for his acts , but uo rann
cm be persecuted for his political
opinions or religions faith. Polygamy
baing a crime under our statutes ,
orery person guily of this crime is
a abject to the penalties pro-
sribed by the law. But we
should establish a very dangerous
precedent wore we to convict and pun
ish every person for polygamy without
trial or evidence other than the fact
that such a person religiously believed
polygamy to be a divine institu
tion. To disfranchise every Mormon
and deprive him of the privilege of
Bitting on juries would ba tantamount
to instituting a religious test for
American citizenship , and that would
eventually lead to the establishment
of a state religion.

A MINING 3LELSTROM ,
Mo Which the Wealth of a
Deadwood the Real 'Recep
tacle of all the Riches
of the Hills.
The City Steadily Growing in
Wealth and Population.
Corresyond nc ( The See
DEADWO.PD . , November 25 , 1880. v
'Nearly five years ago , Captain Jack
Crawford , equipped by THE OMAHA
BEE , penetrated to-Whitewood gulch ,
where the present city of Deadwood
now stands , and wrote the first letter
forwarded from the Black Hills to
any eastern journal. The two creeks ,
Whitewood and Deadwood , at whose
confluence the town was built , were
then the scene of a placer excitement
which rivalled the palmiest days of
California placer mining. Deadwood
gulch was lined with placer claims
and the pan and shaker made merry
musio along both the little creeks.
Although the first placer discoveries
in the Hills were made in their
southern border on Spring and French
creeks , the Deadwood placers soon
became of more importance , both by
Reason of their greater productive
ness and because of the abundance of
water. Miners from Custer City and
Rockervillo began to flock to ihe newly
found claims , and in the twinkling of
an eye cabins and stores lined the
sides of the stream , and the city of
Dcidwood sprang into an existence
from which it has sinca rapidly pro
gressed to its present solid and sub
Deadwood creek ia separated from
Whitewood gulch by a divide some
five hundred feet in height. At the
junction of the two streams the hills
diverge , leaving a narrow bottom , Jrp-
on which the city is built. From its
edges the sides bf ihe gulches rise
precipitously , apparently enclosing
the town on all sides. The two prin
cipal streets , Main and Sher
man , follow. Up , , respectively the
course of Deadwocd and
Whitewood gulches. Main street is
nearly a mile in length. The upper
porticn is devoted principally to the
better class of structures , while its
lower end is occupied by the filth of
China town , slaughter houses and
stables. Sherman street for two
squares runs parallel with Main street
and A number of other streets connects
with that thoroughfare. From this
point it extends up Whitewood gulch.
This section is the business portion of
lhacity and presents an appcaranco
which would do credit to many a
town of thrice its years. Perched on
the t mountain side , lining streets cut
for their accommodation and extend'
Ing along the little gulches which lead
into Whitewood creek , are the resi
dences of the Deadwooders. Bright
and cheery looking little structures
many of them are evincing consider
able architectural finish and
the tasio of their owners.
A year ago the city was visited by a
distroua conflagration which des
troyed nearly the entire business portion
tion of the town. A few fire proof
buildings alone escaped the general
desolation standing amid the ruins as
monuments to the foresight and pru
denceof their ownera. O'he firowich !
at first seemed an overwhelming cala
mity , proved to be a blessing to the
city. The indomitable energy of
De.idwood'rf merchants manifested it
self at once. The same wires which
brought to eastern readers the news of
the disaster , carried orders for new
stocks of goods , and ] material for
largerfand * more substantial buildings.
Brick structures in many Instances
took the place of the square front
shanties xr'-jch IWd Main and Sher
man atreu P. Witbiii a month Deadwood -
wood rose from its ajl.cs rejuvenated
and revivified. To-day it bears an
aspect of substantial solidity
which shows the faith of its
business men in its future stability as
the great commercialmetropolis of the
richest gold producing country on the
globe. Deadwood claims a population
of 6,000 inhabitants ; 4,000 wpuld ,
perhaps , be nearer the real figure ,
and the city ia steadily and percepti
bly growing. Real estate is in great
demand , and new buildings are con
stantly being erected. Just at pres
ent the building boom is not so mark
ed as it was earlier in the season , but
the advent of spring will see a re
markable number of additions to tbo
substantial structures of the city.
For this season of the year , business
h exceptionally good , and merchants
are correspondingly elated. Freight
shipments during the fall have been
enormous. It ia estimated 25,000,000
pounds of freight have entered the
Hills this year. Of course the Deadwood -
wood fire is responsible to some ex
tent for such a tremendous showing ,
but the rapid growth of the city and
the extension of business must betaken
taken into consideration. On election
day the streets were blockaded foe
hours with bull teams loaded with
f reightand overl , 000,000 pounds were
handed over to miners and merchants.
Most of the freight cornea over the
Pierre route from Pierre , 170 miles
distant. An excellent road connects
Deadwood with the Missouri river ,
over which the Northwestern stage
line makes connection with the
Chicago & Northwestern road , and
lands the traveller on Lake Michigan
in tbree a'hd a half dayi from Dead-
wood. Dcadwood'a wholesale trade
branches out to all the mining
camps of the hills. Lead City
four miles up Whitewood gulch where
the "belt" on which the great quartz
mine of the Hills is situated is a
heavy consumer. So , in a less degree ,
are the towns of Gayville , Golden
Gate , Anchor City , Central and
Orville which lie a mile and a quarter
above Deadwood and contain over
2500 inhabitants. The merchants car
ry heavy stocks of goods for the win
ter trade , as freighting is seriously
interfered with by the heavy snows
which , at present , have blockaded all
Deadwood may justly lay claim to
the title of the modern New Jerusa
lem. Its streets are literally paved
with gold. The gravel which forma
the roadway is taken from the old
placers , and contains gold which it
would scarcely pay to "pan" but which
exists nevertheless. The bricks used
in the buildings , the rocks in the
foundations , the very sand in the
mortar , all contain a percentage of
gold. A short time ago the dis
covery was made by the proprietors
of a brick yard on Whitewood gulch ,
near the city , that the clay of which
the bricks made
Tore contained so
much gold dust thai the manufactory
was converted into a placer claim.
Thousada of these selfsame bricks
now compose the walls and chimneys
of buildings in Deadwood.
I had intended in this letter to fur
nish some statistics of the mining
camps in Lead and Central , but mn t
reserve them till another time for
lack of space , concluding with a few
general roraarka'on the Pcosnix city
of thoHilla. The "tenderfoot" who
eipecta to find in\Deadwood \ a mining
camp of the BreS Hirte-stamp , will
find himself vastlyimistaken. A city
rapidly assuming mtiropolifan proportions

Tne Farmers' Convention.
Lincoln Dcmecrat ,
The farmers ot Nebraska hare been
requested to , meet in convention in
this city on January 5th , for the pur
pose of devising waya'and means for
the protection of their industry
against such encroachments aa have ot
late been growing at a terrible rate.
The call for the convention is made by
some parties in Gage county , and it ia
to be hoped that the sarmers will heed
it and sen ! their very beat then from
all over the state to attend it. All
other industries jjf this land are ior
ganized into-union of some sort/for /
the advancement of their rc-
epcctive intoroitjf but the farmer ;
and him alone , has , to this time ,
seen fit to run it alone , and the result
of ha carelessness la visible every
where , in every state in the union.
Thefarmers must pool their issues ,
regardless of politics , or else they will
continue and remain the dupes of all
other industries combined , they can
run this country to suit them , if they
only seej fit to try it , and the only way
to do it is by a union. The work
once commenced in any state and it
will be taken up iu all other states ,
and a national union will then be cf
fected which will have a potent pcwer
over the destinies of this republic.
The better the farmer's interests are
guarded the better for the whole
country ; hence their union is a
matter of national impoatance and
unlike other great industries which
have pooled their isauea to the detri
ment of the people at large , the farm-
era * union wilt be a great blessing.
Personally we have long since advised
the farmers' of doine this } wa non Ti'
iterate the advso ; and beg of them not
to neglect it any longer. Rise up ,
farmers of Nebraska 1 to the rescue !
For your own sake and that of your
children , organize as requested by the
Gage county farmers and attend the
convention. Sand such delegated ao
will honor you ; men of brains , fidel
ity , and energy ; do not send howling
demagogues , for they will hurfc your
interests more than they will help
them , and , above all , send
true men. The farmers need not put
themselves in battle array against all
other classes } as yet this is not re
quired ; all that is necessary is to
guard 'your interests and place your
selves on a foot of equality with all
other classes. For the time being ,
this is all that is wanted , and tnat
once achieved everything else will
take care of itself. To-day the farm
ers are not freemen ; they are serfs
and political slaves ; their sovereignty
serves as a mop for other people , who
are not worth shoo leather for the
tillers of the soil ; and yet theao chaps
manage to live in luxurious ease and
comfort , while the farmer , laborious
/as ho may be , ia , not even left thtj
means to clothe hia family as it ought
to be. We will watch the movement
and will help it with all our strength.
