secured the sympathv of the order under the belief that the very charges made against Sir Kolb had always been condemned in can didates who htpponed to belong to the legal or other professions "Whj

as the entering wedge by which republicans might split open the close political districts thus exposing the state to the danger of renewed negro rule On the other hand the alliances resented tlie

which he pi poses to substitute for the sub-treasury measure The bill was drawn up by Colonel Polk the pro-idem of the alliance assisted by Mr McGhmny Thus it will hive the support of the alliance olhceis in preference to the other measure The bill is entitled An act to authorize the issuing of legal tenders for school m d other purposes basod on lands of the Lmted States It provides that the treasury shall issue legal tenders to rlio amount of per caj iCa to bo based on the next census, or about 800 000 000 of greenbacks w h cli is to be aistubuted among the states in proper tion to

and ho further added that many of the Southern congiessmen owed him a debt of gratitude for getting them out of the scrape of nnswermg the sub-treasury question He says anybody can vote for his bill thinks it will pa-ss The bill, seams to been hastily drawn up In speaking of it to- night a member of the judiciary committee WHO is recognized as the ablest lawjer in the house said that the majority of states would to change their constitutions to comply with the lequiromeiits of the bill, that undor the constitutions of the majority 6f states no one is aiithonycd to receive the money after the government has issued it The bill is, however received with delight by many of the timid congressmen who have been astraddle the fence, between the il and the deep sea for many who could not speal" out in favor of the sub-treasu ry bill, but who feared to come out against it They believe this a death blow to the sub- treasury scheme especially as it is Colonel Polk s bill and being prepaied by him it must be the choice of the alliance Many of them will not feai to favor this thcie are now a or more of letlers disap- proving the sub-treasnry bill, m course of preparation and tons of papei e
