COUKTY. OFFICIAL . PAPER.
DALLAS, SATURDAY,1' AUG. 27.
Our Second Reform.
Jy a provision in the Constitution of
JlM JJuitcd JStatcs, the Judges of the
'nnn?f- n,l ,f l! ?nf,rlnr 1
Inderal. Courts, -hold their offices for
life or during good behavior. This we
hold to be, also, a relic of monarchy.
It may bo asked why did not the fram
ers of that instrument so understand it?
jtlfW answer, in all probability they did
eq understand the provision j but, at
the; time that instrument was framed,
-all who are familiar with the history of
4Uhis republic well know that it was only
by the wisdom, sound judgment and
a linttrinz efforts of such men as Wash-
ington, and his patriotic compeers, that
the people were enabled at all to change
from the old system of independencies
to a nationality, and while thoy were
'cognizant of the fact that principles of
wiiionaichy still lingered with them, as
did absolute human slavery ; yet it was
impossible for tho revolutionary fathers
to effect all thej desired to accomplish
i.txt once, or even in one generation ; but
?1 they saw plainly that the form of gov
ernmeut then existing must be chang
ed, and they accepted the very best
they could get at the time, and was
fcatisfiVd that, in doing what they did,
.,in establishing a natioua.l government,
i hey had lain the foundation for a pure
form of republicanism, and, although
the pure and great minds of that day
would have giadly eradicated .the very
evils of which we now comnlain. to
gether with slavery, of which they
were then ashamed, it was impossible
and they left it for the legitimate work
of other generations who should sue
- eeed them. And now the time has
coined when almost every man, woman
. and even child, who has arrived at the
years of discretion, see, feel, and admit
'. that, in a republic like that of the Uni
tecT States, the idea of placing any one
man upon ;the bench, or in the posses
sion of any office in the government,
with the j complete power to retain it
and do as. he pleases, and act as arbi
trlrily as he desires, against 1 the will
and wishes of the people, who alone
am. rerign,fenty ' euT.jcot to removal
iipon the commission of some crime for
which he could be impeached, is pre
posterous" 'and absolutely ridiculous
Xhe idlea.of, office holders being consid
ered as merely servants of the people,
and all supreme power rcting with the
people, and at the same time the peo
'' pllwho alone possess the right to com
mand, being compelled, by their own
- fundamental law, to submit to the die
td ' of ' ono man for life, right or
t, cwrong and that without remedy, is a
y proposition too silly to contemplate, and
is and has been for years the ridicule
of the people of every civilized nation
en the globe. And what argument
can; be" made in its favor ? None, we
think, which savors of good sense and
true republicanism. We are aware
mat our position is sometimes met oy
(the argument that the Judiciary is so
different from any other branch of the
sgovernment ; that, in order to keep it
pure and unmixed with politics, it is
necessary that the Judges should hold
for life. !. '
If there is anything worthy of con
m ... sideration in such logic as this, we tit
tsterly fail to see it. If this principle be
true AS to JadffR of : the Ffirlml ftnv-
'emmerit, then it would hold good ( in
the case of all the Judges under State
organizations, because the judicial ays
tem is the same, everywhere, and in or-
, dcr. to keep it pure, by this kind of
reasoning, every County Judge in' the
United States, yea, every Justieo of
the Peace" and Probate Court ought to
be appointed or elected for life. Hot
Jiow absurd the idea that it takes men
oajpf itbo; political world, by placing
them upon the bench. They entertain
i ;fuujLrpjg. partizao feelings as any eet of
rn3n who live in this Government, and
more dangerous in consequence of the
f'Iife tenure of their office.. It would
.i(iHe just as reasonable, and moro, to say
;fhaf' the laws of the land could not be
impartially ' administered unless the
. President of the United States could;
hold his office for life"; and if the Pres
T Ident, then; all ' other offices, aiid then
new much of republicanism should we
IjAVC left ? Sovereigns of Qregoo to-
day, in your midst, by the authority
vested in the President of the United
States and the Senate, by the very
provision of the Constitution we have
here pointed out, Judges are occupying
thd bench who have to deal with j your
most sacred, rights in many instances,'
I. A J . A 1 1
"'.m w"u UV uuu" mii, ar.
bitianly as they pleeasc so that they do
nothing for which they can be im
peached, and we hardly know? what
they could do for which they would be
set aside by that process, since the days
of Andiew Johnson, they can be as
corrupt as they desire so they commit
no crimo known to the statute books,
and still remain upon the bench among
you, They may be men who are most
offensive and obnoxious to you, men of
degraded morals and habits, men who
are not fit to mingle with the young
and rising' generation, and yet you have
no remedy, They may remain upon
the bench until they are a second time
children, and may be bloated slaves to
rum, and you have no redress, not even
by petition. The ears of your Presi
dent and the Senate must be deaf to
your cries, however anxious they may
be to heed them, for, by virtue of that
I relic of monarchy which stares you and
them so impudently in the face, in that
great charter of our pretended liber
ties, they are powerless to assist you,
because the appointee- whoever he
may be -after inducing the President,
by false representations it may be, to
mike the appointment, .and the Sen
ate to confiim, be stands a monarch in
your midst for life. And when you
shall commence to complain, he may
trifle with your feelings and defy your
power, remain in office . against your
will, no matter how wicked he becomes,
and there is no power on earth that can
remove him. Shall this remain the
law of your boasted republic, where it
is said, with an air of triumph, "that
all power rests with the people?"
Let it be understood tEat we speak
now of no particular man or men who
at present occupy the bench, nor do we
intimate but thai the bench to day is
aced with somo as good , and pure
men as was ever. born upon the globe.
tt is the principle with which we deal,
and have a right to deal, and it deserv
es heavier blows" than we are compe
tent to give. '-"'' ' ;"' -" "'
Here, then, we give our second re
form, and claim that it must be effect
ed, for the time has come in the history
of the . American people when they
roust either shake off the remaining
relics of monarchy; which linger with
us but to injure or we f must reced
back ioto monarchy. i
a And how let us appeal to you again
who alone ought to be sovereign, to can
didly consider this question, and if you
desire to eradicate this great evil, and
perpetuate and establish pure republi
canism, and transmit it to your child
ren, then, while you can, rise in your
majesty, and incorporate in yourfuuda
mental law this principle :
fie&olved, That the Constitution
the United States shall be so amended
as to effect the total abolition of life of
fices in this Government, andllong
tenures. Third next week.
The Coolie Question.
There are certain politicians inVihis
country that make considerable preten
tions in regard to what is tho best pol
icy to pursue with Chinese coolieism
byt it seems that up to this time noth
ing has bo:n - accomplished worth re
cording, or any system of restrictions
by which this almost countless horde
are to be limited, has been inaugurated
Able men may argue the question
with great confidence Jn their own abil
ity to offer something that will quie
the working class throughout the land
and events have demonstrated that, the
whole country, from east to west, are
alike forced to meet this huge Anaoon
da that is entwining itself, with the as
slstance of tho would-be slave holders
if the country,1 around our very vitals ;
but as yet not a statesman has been
found ingenious enough to invent any
panacea th'at see m'f likely to effect the
decease. ;IoVtbe,fir place the ques
tion "natarally arises, wno is thfl fight
between, the laboring classes and the
Chinese, or the former and oapital F
n order to solve this problem we shall
have to ascertain whg derives the most
benefit from coolie j laoorand we are
fpjrced to" tcljcvo that if Is tho capita

capital and labor, and

we will fight, is to battle against . eapi

proceed in a proper manner. In tie
first place, we must send a strong Rep
resentative act for us, not such a one

the whole people and carry out their
will, and then neglect so to do, but give
us one with sound judgment and .prac-
tical ideas, who will not feel nattered
at the attention of those money kings,
or be ready at all times to do their bid
ding, and to work assiduously under
certain influences to fill their coffers,
by using their talents in the name of
the people, for the granting of large
subsidies that will eventually 5 circum
scribe us within limits too narrow to be
endured. If such an one could be
found, acting upon this principle of
right, we might at least confine this
coolie slavery within reasonable bounds,
if not stop it altogether. As the ques
tion involved is cheap labor, we take
the position that it is detrimental to the
best interests of the country, and in or
der to support this proposition, we will
cite, as at least prima facia evidence.
the republic of Mexico, that contains
within her borders some of the richest
soil .on the American continent, with
water powers unsurpassed, mines of
gold and silver, with harbors and bays
deep enough to float the navies of the
world, and with natural advantages
within herself enough to place her at
once the equal of other less favored na
tions, if not surpass them altogether in
all things that tend to make a country
great and powerful; but with all these
superior facilities for trale and com
mercc, Mexico to day is one of the
most degraded nations on the earth, and
in place of a correct system of labor,
with inducements for people of other
nations to voluntarily immigrate thith
er, anarchy abounds, with crime and
desolation stalking abroad at noonday.
r Equality is the bais of all good gov
eminent, and in a country like ours,
equality is justice and justice is good
wages for the labor 102 man. No other
system can be adopted and be success
ful; if a government expects support
from the people, it must reciprocate in
like manner by keeping steadily in
view the wants of the people, and
frown down any and all attempts to
draw a line of distinction between the
1 . .
rich and poor, and stand ready to
thwart any pernicious design contem
plated by unprincipled men to reduce
the laboring classes, by servile wages,
to become dependents upon their
The people of this country are great
ly indebted to the system of good
wages, for its prosperity is directly
identified with it; emigration has pour
ed in upon us from all parts of the
world, seeking that which they could
not receive at home. The true princi
ple, as we understand it, is this, string
ent laws should be passed, prohibiting
coolieism in any form, the people of all
nations who desire to migrate to this
COUntrj and who do voluntarily Come
and ask to unite their destinj with ours,
should have that privilege, laws should
be made to protect all equally, both in
person and property, no class legislation
shout 1 be permitted, and no jaws should
be passed which favor monopolies and
aro detrimental to the rights of the
nnnr man. and no law which lia a ten
nancy 10 uegraue taoor or aoes nowuuy
compensate it, ought ever to be permit
ted to remain with us; all men of all
race8 should here stand equal before
the law, but the white race alone should
standi at the helm of State in this Gov
ernment, and this because any other
course would have 0 direct tendency to
induce all other races of men to migrate
here, it might be to the entire over
throw of our institutions ; but the
course we favor will naturally have an
opposite tendency, for if we shall, say
to any particular race that you -cannot

then but comparatively few, will come ;
