From ourltcxulur Correspondent.
Washington, March 1888.
Hon. Samuel J. Hundull made a few
remarks In the Iiouso on Wednesday,
which seemed him a round of he.uty ap
plause from thu Democrctic side and
irom the galleries. It was during the
discussion on .Mr. Mills' resolution au
thorizing tlio Secretary of the Treasury to
p irehaso bonds with thu surplus, which
discussion, by tho way, was tho most In
teresting thus far of the session. Tho
tenor of .Mr. Hamlall's remarks was such
that little doubt remains that he will sup
IHirt tho tariff bill which has been pro
posed bv a majority of tlio Ways and
ileaus Committee. Ho closed by saying
that he hoed and lielluved the Demo
cratic party would at thu proiier time in)
found acting together.
.Mr. Hreekenridgo of Kentucky made
an excellent tariff seech on Wednesday
in the House. Hu argued that revenue
reform was necessary to tlio prosperity of
the country, and it was thu duty of the
Democratic majority of tho House to pass
a bill looking thereto, leaving to
thu Heiuibllcan Senate the respon
sibility of defeating tlio will of thu peoplu
if they dare to do It, by rejecting the bill
that has lieen ho carefully drawn by tho
niajotity of thu Ways and Means Coni
mitteo. Thu tariff bill, uon which the Demo
cratic members of tho Ways and Means
Conimitteo havu lieuu faithfully working
since the beginning of thu session, is now
complete, it has been placed before thu
mil committee, ami any lurtner delay in
presenting it to thu House will lie fairly
chargeable to the lteptibllcau members of
that committee, mu mil proposes to re
duce thu revenues of the Government
from $00,000,000 to 70,000,000 a year.,
Tho Government I'rintllig Olllco inves
tigation is still on. Every day oilers new
proofs of tho many benelllH derived by
that ollicu since it lias lieen under Demo
cratic control. Many thousand dollars
have lieen saved for thu Government,
while dio iiiuntltv Of work turned out is
large: than ovur beforu.
ino tricky iiinior Senator from Now
Hampshire, William E. Chandler, intro
duced a very Innocent-looking bill in thu
Senate Iho other day. It authorizes thu
purehusoof Alliert Oportl'stwo paintings,
''Tho Farthest North," and "Camp Clay,
or thu Itescue of Lieutenant Greeley iniil
Party." This bill will liear watching, as
both Secretaries Whitney and Endlcott
have refused to recommend their pur
chase. The attist claims that Senator
Chandler, who was then Secretary of thu
Navy, onleied tho paintings for tlio Gov
ernment. If hu did ho, hu exceeded his
authority, anil Congress should not help
him out of Ids dilemma. Tho price of
the two paintings is $12,001), which is
generally considered to bo much moro
than they are worth.
Hv tho way, a bill; has been in
troduced to create a National Art
Commission, to consist of fourteen per
sons to bu apM)inted by thu Pivsldent,
and serve without compensation. Their
duty shall hu to pass upon all works of
art which the Government tiroposes to
purchase, and to Hiierv!su tlio prepara
tion of plans and execution of contracts
foi nit wo k under Government direction.
I will just mention in tins connection
that the Washington philanthropist
whoso obsequies ttsik placu this week,
(Mr. W. W. Cotcoiau) lieiiuoathed an
other if 100,000 to tlio Corcoran Art Gal
lery. Another ltepubllcau boomerang. It
will )o iemenileivil that eaily lu the
present session of Congress a ltcpuhlican
member Introduced with a great blast of
trumpets a lesolutlon In tlm House call
ing on tlio Commissioners of Pensions to
show caiiMi, etc., why lie had exceeded
his authority by issuing what Is known
as tho "ono hundred dav" circular to
I,. union claimants. Tho House Commit
tee on Pensions lias iiuulo an adverse io
isort on this resolution. Thu Commis
sioner did not exceed his authority, and
lu Issuing thu circular the interests of no
claimant were Injured. On the contrary,
many wero Iwnolited thereby.
Senator Vest made a Hjieceh on thu De
pendent Pension bill Wednesday, in
which ho fairly flayed that class of slates
men who are always ready to poso as tho
Hjiecial champions of Iho soldiers' inter
ests. Ho said they wero turning llio na
tion's legislative halls into auction rooms
in which they could bid for thu soldier
yotu in thu coming contest. "Partisan or
non-partisan, my convictions require mo
to vote against thu bill ; anil I hope It
may 'die tlio death' in thu other brunch
of tho National Congress; and if not
there, at thu bauds of thu Executive. If

Correpnndoncu of tlio Weston Lender.
It is seldom that any of our county or
local iMiH-rs will venture to discuss "tlio
most iiiisirtant issue that is confronting
tho people of to-day. The very subject
that Is most important to the people, and
every publication should be most prompt
to give Information on, is generally
avoided and disregarded. The great com
bination!) anil corporations that are con
stantly springing up always teceive from
many of tlio leading papers, support anil
encouragement, and urgo thu innocent
masses to step forward without hesitation
and havu their life's blood micked from
their veins, lu tho latest improved man
ner. These combinations and trusts
must be broken and thu quicker thu
break begins thu butler. I appeal to tho
jieoplu, and I 1iomj thoso that read this
will stop and think, why will wo contlnuo
to bo robk'd? Why will wo continue vot
ing for either of tlio two corrujit parties,
whoso only object Is to rob and plunder
thoiieople? Why not loin ourselves to
the rnion Lulsir Party? Itcurtalnly would
hu butler for us to uultu with tills oppo
sition party, and with peaceful methods
endeavor to battle down these monster
evils in our politics and again plant our
republic on a foundation of justice, equal
ity and fraternity. I am pleased to note
that tho editors of thu East Oiiihionian
are growing moro and more liliend In
their views, on tlio ixilltical question, anil
I think that great good will yet como
from it. Any party supiiortcd by tho

allords. Such men very neldon, if over,
get there, they have too much honor to
