Republican says it is every day becoming more and more clear that the for any effective reform of our civil and the return of the government and its officers to the honest and efficiency of former will come from an tion of the Radicals from power at and especially from a thorough purging of the Radical United States Seemingly the only effect produced on that body by ihe exposures of official corruption in the late debate by 5Ir. and other was to elicit from a leading Radical senator the remark that the whole civil reform movement was a mere piece of visionary When the swindle had been seemingly killed outright in the house of the senate gave it new life by authorizing ant to carry his case before the court of if defeated there lie will of Bourse again present it to congress by perseverance and the aid of the may eventually succeed in getting all he But the in- capacity of the Radical tion and its constitutional adviser in the exercise of the appointing the to secure honest officials for the has never been more glaringly exposed than iu souio recent disclosures concerning the New York The charges do not rest merely on the allegations of ical opponents who might be ed of partisan nor are they mere tirades of outsiders ignorant of They rest on iLe testimony of such men as A. T. President Grant's first tary of the W. F. S. B. and others equally well known as prominent importers and zealous From the revelations made in the United States senate and in the New York on the unimpeachable testimony before it is clear that a ruthless game of mailing importers is carried on in the New York With the intricacies and ambiguities of our monopoly and the arbitrary re- gulation made to carry out its true in- tent and which is to prevent importations the officials find it an easy task to make objections to the regularity of put the Importer to trouble and delay in re- his and even scare him into fearing that he may lose them altogether through fines and Rather than run such risk the merchant submits to pay a bribe to the who thereon furnish him every Of course this extra expenditure is added to the cost to him of importing his and enters into the increased price he must charge to those to whom be thus in the end the consumers of those wares throughout the country are made to pay tribute to enrich cor- rupt Radical officials in the city of New Such abuses have grown up into a regular and the general body of importers have become afraid to resist it. A merchant for in- stance finds that cases of valuable are detained at the house on a frivolous of larity in some or even for a pretended violation of the revenue unless he can pass them through in the usual the season for them will be over and they may have to be kept for the next by which time the goods may be spoiled or a change of fashion have made them Another expedient is to suspend the business of an importing firm by seizing its books on some trumped-up charge of undervaluation in or some such In one case an importer was compelled to pay over the regular as a to obtain his The books of another were seized and the officials offered to return them for but afterwards reduced their demand to the modest trifle of But the importer refused to be let big case come to gained and paid in costs fees ten times the amount the bribe which would have enabled him to avoid it. The only course left for the people following racy bit of relative to the recent tariff discussion in the Illinois During his speech yesterday in the house on the free trade Morrison ot Monroe said the effort to convert the Radical party to the free trade notion would prove as abortive as did the attempt to convert the habitues of Kit rat in New to the Christian They were on the downward and down they would Mr. Dison of Cook and wanted to know if Kit were not Democratic Mr. Morrison of Monroe quietly re- plied that they York had j her so had Chicago and all large But there was this difference between New York and While New York keeps hers at Chicago sends her rats to the This apt retort brought down the and poor Dixon sat and has not being heard of Audit was not a good day for rat very grave we have long been convinced and we are not sure that the blunder is beyond But rend Mr. on this and form your own Removing tlir 4 the N. Y. Jan. We to-day accord a full hearing to those who seek a transfer of the federal metropolis from the banks of the Potomac to those of the Mr. L. U. who thus addresses President Grant on the was an early and has been not only an indefatigable champion of He has worked and we judge to better than any of his and the tions which favor removal have never been more fully nor more cogently set forth than they are in the letter herewith Yet we think the president is sub- if not technically right in his that the capital is not to be removed by a mere majority vote iu each majority which may number less than one-third of the members entitled to sit in that house The capital of a nation is not to lie mounted cm wheels and hither and thither as a casual majority may We do not dispute the legal efficacy of such n we only tain that removal is so great a topic though the constitution does not expressly prescribe something very like a constitutional ment should be required to it. And this is what the president in- tended iiy his casual remarks quoted by Mr. R. On the next point we are in full accord with The capital question should be fully considered and finally settled The ward aud southward extension of our until it has become many times what it was in 17S7. raises a fair pre- sumption that the capital needs to be The fact fact it that the valley of the the fittest site in by uo means proves that it remains such to this The fair inference is Hence we let us take up the subject and dispose of it con- for so Ions as our country shall remain essentially what it is. If we shall go on until we rule the entire it is bable that New or or or will then be the spot having quadrupled our original area by tions on two sides and there let us determine whether Washington shall or shall not remain the Mecca of our office-seeking before we spend another mill in buying costly grounds and Greeting buildings at which could not be sold for five per of their cost in ease the government shall ever leave them behind it. But we are not convinced that n central location is so important as Mr. Reavis esteems it. Other things being quite such location is but other things rarely or never are So London is the capital of Great Paris of holm of and Lisbon of though neither of them is near the centre of the Xay St. tho modern capital of is by no means so central us was that Moscow which Peter the Great Rome is not so near tho centre of Italy as Florence yet the latter is about to give place to the China is a very old con- servative country yet her modern is not so central to her territory as her early capitals In we concede to geo- graphical position a very subordinate importance in the location of a seat of Mr. Reavis may wisely consider that his own St. Louis is not so near tho centre of our present mains as Topeka or Fort and govern himself Wu have no doubt that New York is the most desirable point in the Union for the location of its of our own people whose duties constrain them to reside or sojourn at tlie with of the Old World's ambassadors and other would decidedly pre- fer it. and and everything that interests and delights are more and cheaply enjoyed here than elsewhere in the New Moreover our politics and municipal rule are so thoroughly rotten that even the ence of congress and the federal could not further corrupt Yet we do not ask or seek a removal of the capital to our We are quite content with though we are confident that one dred million dollars would have been saved ere this location which afforded the of the federal somewhat beside the The present location was a Rhetorical Here arc two gentlemen sitting at and the route of a railroad to the north tlie ocean be or shall the track be laid on the It is a fair There are good ments to be drawn from great ral and from the actual What is abstractly and what is actually are points that may be carefully and ly And so they And the two gentlemen take different sides and urge the proper The advocate of the tunnel shows why that is the bettor and the friend of the surface route offers what seems to him conclusive The does not declare that his nent is a bloated mass of nor does his adversary insist con- that the tunneler has been bribed to support an ble If did each probably put the other out of the and certainly they would not be likely to be very cordial friends is the reason that the parting from his proceeds to a public meeting called to consider the subject of a railroad to the North ascending the platform vehemently declares that the project of laying a track over the ice is not only repugnant to reason and common sense not only are babies of eighteen months competent to its shrieking folly but it is a vast anil its advocates are knavish rascals Meanwhile the friend of the ice track goes to his and sneers at the ble absurdity of tunneling the They'd better tunnel their wits who advocate it exclaimed They are a horde of grasping gormandizers of other people's They are a herd of antediluvian who try to pass off thistles And so he rates as passionately as his etich calling the other swindler and And what is produced upon the public mind disgust ami and then a con- that the advocates have each so covered the cause with peration that it will be a weary work to dig down the pit of the Every body would like to understand tlie reasons upon both sides they but calling people fools and knaves is not and the whole subject is tor's Easy in for Trustee's John Ills their trust clato April A.
