The announcement is made on what
Is regarded as good authority that
, , President Arthur has decided to ap-
. joint Henry M. Teller secretary of
the interior. This choice , wo are told
by the agonc of the associated press ,
' -was made first , because Mr. Teller
has boon a warm supporter of Conk-
' ' ling with two presidents Ho
voted against Morrit's confirmation
when Arthur was removed from the
Now York custom house by Hayoi ,
and ho also voted against Robertson's
.confirmation last spring.
Second Because the president do-
--siren to place aPacificcoastman nttho
head of the interior department , and
"Colorado being identified in interest
m with the Pavifio coast , would render
Teller an avilablo man.
Lastly , Because Toller's appoint
ment will bo favorably received kby
the great railroad interests of the
west , particularly the Union and Kan-
/ . QS Pacific.
This statement places Presidont.Ar-
thur in a vory"diBcroditablo'.lighY _ before -

Nobody will dare question President -
' ' dent Arthur's right to fill his cabinet

with him on all political issues.
f ITobody can justly .find fault .with
him for girlng" recognition to the arc ;
tion west of the Missouri in his cabi
net. But the country will view the
choice of Mr. Teller in the Interest of
, the railroads with grave concern.
President Arthur knows enough to
know that the interests of the great
railroads and especially of the Union

interests of Uio United States. Presi
dent Arthur knows that the

ment by these giant monopolies

> man for the section of which ho is
chosen as special representative. Instead -
stead of gratifying the people west of
the Missouri , whether on thin side of
the Rockies or on the Pacific coast ,
/ " the appointment of Teller would bo
resented as an outrage. This man

During the sad bereavement which

the school of that congregation has
boon suspended , nearly over since the
appearance of the amall pox in Oma

serious sufferers by this plague.
On the first Sunday in March the
owner of the green house on Six

tarily oflorod the use of his spacious
floral hall for the use of the worshipers -

service there under palms and trop
ical plants. Once the sorvicn has boon
conducted by Rov. Kattonhauson from
Louisville , Nob. , at other times by
the president of the congregation ;
the minister himself not venturing
among his flock on account if the

ever , was not the loss solemn and heart-
toucning and the Lord was always
implored to end the plague.

The Railroad Problem.
San Francssco Chronicle.
The railroad problem promises to
become M serious n ono and rva diffi
cult of notation during the dccado
from 1880 to 1890 as the question of
African slavery waa to the statesmen
of 1850 and 18GO , No plan yet proposed -
posed for placing thcio great and
Krowing corporations under the Jaw ia
without ita weak and objectionable
points when practical enforcement is
attempted. The only headway made
against them haa been in such state
constitutional provisions as prohibit
the statca and counties from voting
them subsidica , supplemented by a
popular pressure upon congress which
bias fair to save what remains of the
public domain from their grasp. In
all olao there has been no change for
the bettor. In defiance of state laws
they still as much an ovcrdisqriminato
in their charges on transportation
against places and personsj stillenforco
their own rule of charging all that any
commodity will boar ; still , in the
face of positive prohibitory statutes ,
consolidate different competing lines
into ono combined power tor the op
pression of the people ; still "water"
their stock and divide points on pure
ly fictitious capital ; still evade state
and local laws on their property , and
in many states exorcise a power great
er than that of the state government.
Some of the proposals upon which
great tress was laid four or five years
ago are now by general conaent admit
ted to be practical failures and moro
legal rotten timber. If the state
commission haa been of any practical
value to the people of Massachusetts ,
where it waa drat tried , wo can only
know of it through ono of the
Adamaes , who waa first a Com
missioner for the fitato , is now
in the service of the railway corpora
tions , and trying to solve the prob
lem of interstate traffic by suggesting
a federal commission of throe , to bo
paid a yearly salary of $10,000 each ,
and to be composed of ono "consti
tutional lawyer , one railway expert ,
and ono expert statistician. " Ho oven
goes so for aa to present a draft of the
bill and name at least two of the com-
misaicnora to bo appointed under it.
And after all this is done , Mr. Adams
admits that about the best thing the
commission r.oifld do , and what he
thinks it would do , ia to let the cor
porations do as they please.
The Reagan bill plan has been in
varying form before congress over
since 1877. Its purpose is for congress -
gross to regulate interstate charges ,
and to prohibit discriminations be
tween persons and places. There is
no doubt 'of its constitutionality , but
there have arisen of late serious
doubts that it can over be practically
enforced. Isaac L. Rico , late railway
commissioner for the state of Massa
chusetts and an export in railway mat
ters , points out that such a federal
law would bo no use unless it fixed
minimum as well as maximum rates.
A law fixing minimum rates cannot bo
practically enforced and is of
doubtful constitutionality. The
rival corporations tried the
rule and had to abandon it. The
agreement between the great trunk
lines connecting the west with Now
York , Boston. Baltimore and Phila
delphia , by which Now York freights
were $2 per ton. higher than those to
Baltimore and Philadelphia , so seri
ously cut in upon the traffic of the
Now York line and the trade of that
city that it ledto a war of rates , and
the absolution of Vanderbilt from the
compact. When ' these differential
rates were $1 higher on the New York
line the western grain traffic was di
vided out as follows ,
Per Ct. Prr Ct.
Yew York18.7 Baltimore 10.7
Philadelphia. . . . 18.5 Boston 15.8
This was the status of the western
grain trade in 1870-71. In 187G Uio
differential rates still being in forte ,
this was the status.
New York 38.G Baltimore 23j
Philadelphia..23.7 Boston 14.5
The Now York line could not boar
this cutting in upon its traffic , and a
further reduction of the minimum was
demanded. The rival lines refused ,
and a war of rates followed aqain. At
the end of it a reduction in GO cents
was ngrood upon. The result , as
stated in 1880 , was this percentage of
Per Ct. Per Ct.
New York 39 Philadelphia. . . . 20
Baltimore 25 Boston 16
Now York again robe 'od , and the
late fierce war of rates rev. ! tod. Now
York demanded the right .o reduce
as low aa the owners of her line saw
fit , and hero is the outcome of the
fight of 1881 :
Per Ct. Per Ct.
NewYork 48.8 Boston 17.7
Philadelphia. . . . 14 Baltimore 21.3
It is because the Now York lines
are the longest that the agreements
restrained them to a minimum. It
was because she was losing her trade
to Baltimore and Philadelphia that
the owners of her lines wore forced to
recede from the conpact. It is doubt
ful that any act of congress could bet
tor prevail in the enforcement of min
imum rates than such a corporation
Wayne MaoYcagh , late United
States attorney general , now attorney
for the Pennsylvania railroad , informs
the Reagan house committee on inter
state traffic that these roads are pri
vate property and their owners have
the same right to use them for the
benefit of the stockholders that any
private man haa to use his house or
farm for his benefit. This is not
true , and MuoVeagh as a lawyer
ought to know it. Railways and
oatmla are quasi public property , and
the State that gave them their riqhtof
way and corporation powers alao re
served to itself the right to regulate
thir tolls. But the grave question
arises , whether , in case Congress de
cides to regulate interstate traffic , the
State laws on that point muat not be
abandoned ; and if BO , whether any
Congressional Commission , such aa
Adams proposes to carry this Act of
Congress into execution , would not
soon find itself just where Adams and
MpVcagh are in the employ of the
railway companier in-fact , of the Gov
ernment in theory only.
There is yet , after all these failures ,
one way to solve the railway problem
and restrain the tyranny of the corpo
rations. That ia for the government
to purchase or construct certain com
manding lines of railway and operate
them by its own agents. Ita credit
being good ; it could do this cheaper
than any corporation. The rate of
intereat 6n ita bonded debt would bo
2 j per cent , below the average corpo
ration rale ; , and M * would have only
the public to icrvo nd please , the
lowoat possible .raoa would bo insured.
The corporations would either haTe to

A new interest is given to the Senatorial
contest in Michigan by the announcement
that Congressman Hnbbell will di-pute
the succession with Senator Ferry. It was
thought that the latter would have a walk

bell has some strong backers who will do
their utmost for his promotion , while Mr.
Perry's friends will not sec him displaced
if they can prevout it. It is thought that
other candidates will cater the field ,
among them being ex-Governor Baldwin.
