Judge Sabin, it is stated, declines
ft reappointment as postmaster at Gal-
veston. This is rather phenominal,
but does not surprise, those who are
toell acquainted with Judge Sabin.
After the experience of a campaign
of Hubbellism and a Waterloo defeat
it is not to be presumed that a gentle
'man like Judge Sabin desires further
official connection with the Republi-
can party. Deputy Gareison, how-
ever, is willing to take promotion and

Is the Republican senatorial caucus
on Friday last, Mr. Conger directly in
timating that he would vote against
the ways and means tariff bill on its
final passage if lumber is not restored
to the dutiable list, Mr. Allison-took
occasion to read a lesson to senators as
to their duty in obeying the behests
of the caucus. This drew from Sena-
tor Logan a vigorous defense of the
right of individual senators to Sustain
their convictions, untrammeled by
party or caucus dictation.
The Grant boom for the presidency
is a fit accompaniment to the wail
of the dying dynasty. It comes in like
a pinafore chorus—effervescent and
bubbling but unsubstantial and about
as vulgar as the role of the "Captain
of the Queen's Nave." The Demo-
crats will smile at his candidacy, and
the country will repeat the November
rebuke. There was a time when the
capitalists of the country could buy
enough states, or steal them, to elect
anything to the presidency, but the
people have soured on the^bystem and
it is no longer potential. It is, how-
ever, alleged, in the cock-and-bull
story from Washington1,that "the great
railroad and manufacturing corpora-
tions, the banks, the rings, the specu-
lators, the jobbers, the contractors, the
shoddy princes and the adventurers
that swarmed about the White House
from 1870 to 1877, will rally and put
forth all their power to elect Grant.
They believe in a strong government
and in one-man rule, such as was au-
daciously exercised in 1876, when the
presidency was stolen, backed by force
and by threats of civil war. Over-
grown wealth, acquired by combina-
tions, of which the people are uni-
formly the victims, longs' for titular
distinctions, which shall separate it as
a class from the toilers and the com-
mon tax-payers. The possessors of
this wealth are ready for an empire,
and they would pay liberally to bring
it about. They have long aped, in
pomp, in parade and in meretricious
display, the. vanities and the vices of
that which fell in France when the
first gun that Germany fired overthrew
its gilded rottenness."
baccobill. Two Republicans—White,
of Kentucky, and Jorgeasen, of Vir-
ginia— and ninety-nine Democrats
voted in favor of taking up the tobacco
bill, while seventeen Democrats and
129 Republicans voted against it. The
seventeen Democrats were: Bland,
Bragg, Blount, Cobb, Deuster, Geddes,
Hardenberg, Holman, Jones, of Arkan-
saw, Ladd, Matson, Morse, Murch,
Wise of Pennsylvania, Stockslager,
Turner of Georgia and Randall.
This vote cleared the way for the
general tariff bill, which was taken up,
and the general debate opened by Mr.
Kelley, of Pennsylvania.

During the first week of the session
of congress, says a Washington dis-
patch of the 25th, Mr. Kelly, of Penn
sylvania, reported from the ways and
means committee a bill to abolish the
taxes on tobacco, snuff, cigars and
cigarettes,and the Republicans boasted
that they were going to reduce by
many nfillions the burden of internal
revenue taxation. .The bill went to
the calendar of the committee of the
wholei where it took its place below
nine other bills relating to internal
revenue and tariff taxation. Noth-
ing has been done with it since that
time. To-day, when Mr. Kelley moved
to take up bills for raising revenue,
the house readily agreed, but a lively
contest ensued with regard to priority
of consideration of the tobacco bill
0* the general tariff. The latter was
below it on the calendar, and the Dem-
ocrats thinking this was a first-rate
chance to dispose of the tobacco bill,
and thus to relieve the tobacco £rade
from farther loss from the paralyzing
influence of ptotracted agitation of
Ihe question of reducing or abolish-
ing the taxes on tobacco, determined
to fofcee the Republicans to make a re-
cord oil that question. When the to-
bacco bill wafc reached Kelley wanted
to jump over it and take up the gen-
eral tariff bill. Th6 Democrats in-
sisted that the tobacco bill should be
considered at once and be passed or
rejected. A recorded vote was taken,

BREACH IN THE PROTECTION-
There is no doubt that irreconcila-
ble differences have sprung up among
the Protectionists, and that hence-
forth there will be gradual drifting to
the policy of tariff for revenue. The
Republicans having thrown off the
yoke of the bosses and broken the
bands of the caucus, individual sena-
tors and representatives feel free to
ollow their own convictions, and the
party is fast falling to pieces for the
want of the one cohesive and com-
pulsory element. Their quarrels and
disagreements last week on the wayB
and means tariff bill indicate a return
to healthy, vigorous and manly indi-
viduality on the part of many mem-
bers and senators, who had been
driven tjy the bosses and caucuses to
the ver^ presence of the handwriting
on the wall, and they begin to show
signs of a recognition of the thun
ders of November. The Washington
correspondent of the St. Louis Re-
publican, on Thursday last, tele-
graphed as follows:
'The tariff jig is up," said a promi-
nent Republican senator to day in the
seclusion of the Benate cloak room.
"The tariff iig is up" expresses the
prevailing opinion at both ends of the
capitol. The developments this week
have clearly shown there are well-nigh
Irreconcilable differences among the
protectionists themselves. The quar-
rels among Republican renators over
the duty on lumber, pig-iron, iron ore,
raw steel, Bteel rails and other articles
have opened a breach in the protec-
tioniste' ranks which even the curative
properties of a Republican caucus can
not heal. It is already evident that the
demands of the radical protectionists in
the house are too exacting to suit the
more liberal notions of some of their
western Irethren. The ways aiid
means committee bristles with in-
vitations for attack, and the
controversies that have sprung up
among protectionists of the senate
will arise among protectionists of the
house. The senate has now devoted
eleven legislative days to the considers-,.
tion of the tinance committee's bill.
•'At the rate of progress thus far
made," said a Republican member of
the committee t«-day, "the bill could
not be completed before the first of
April," and he regretfully admitted
the prospect of more rapid progress is
not bright. There are at least eight
Republican senators who will vote
against the final passage of the bill un-
less the action of the senate on lumber
and some parts of the metal schedule
is revised, and the outlook 1b that the
number of rebels will be in-
creased by distasteful action on
certain other provisions of the
bill. If it were not for the brevity of
the session the Democratic revenue
reformers with the aid of four or five
western Republican senators would
probably be able to amend the bill so as
to mak^ it pretty respectably JlwU
