This is a bad year for Hreckin-
ri.lges. Now comes the news that
Clifton 11 Breckinridge, of Arkansas,
is likely to have his congressional
career—we were going to say cut short,
but short is not the word, since he lias
been in congress about ten ycurs al-
. cody—abridged by the refusal of his
constituency to give liitn the nomina-
tion, which, in Arkansas, is equivalent
to election. This particular lireckin-
ridge is a clean little man of some
ability, whose original capital in the
business of politics was his family
name and the fact that lie is a son of
the John C. lireckinridge who was
successively 1 "nited States senator,
vice president of the f nited States,
southern democratic candidate for
president. Confederate general, and
Con fed to secretary of war, It was

Cliff w. ppointed a midshipman in
Confederate navy, being transferred
from the army, in which he was serv-
ing as a private, when he was about 17
years of age. After the war he went
to college, and for thirteen years he
was a cotton planter. Elected to coll-
ar s he became a member of the little
rie of extremists who were a sort
1 'in teer steering committee on the
democratic side, and while in no sense
brilliant in debate established and
.maintained a very distinct individual-
ity. The assassination of Clayton,
who was contesting li's seat in con
tfress, brought him into unenviable
prominence, and whether fairly or not
the republicans of Arkansas have al-
ways liei.l him not free from responsi-

It Ih recommended that the republican cen

the time f« r holding the county conventions to
select delegates and alternates for the territo-
rial congressional convention, wherein such
delegates and alternates have not been pre

The attempt of congress to get the
I.ocl; Island strip towns into a county
seat war is reprehensible The rail
roa.l bill with a clause calling for a
vote on county seats would be an evil
rather than a good. All the towns
over there would sutfei alike from it

gainst each other, put blood in every
ye-and in the end leave the peopl
impoverished. Western Kansas is
ruin from county seat competition
Livi s bv the score were lost. Fortunes
were dissipated. Strifes were engen
.lered which hung like a palsy ove
the country. The result was eluigra
tior. instead of immigration. So it
would be over on the Rock Island.
It is simply a matter of whether
.■ailroad is bigger than the govern
ment—w hether it can keep towns on
its line, selected by the government
for county seats, from having railroad
depots, and kill them by corporate
greed. The law instructed the secre
tarv of the interior to select county
seats, lie should have selected them
everybody concedes, at the places
where depots were already built. '1 hat
he did not do this, should not be held
against the people who have gone to
the county seats and invested their
faith, money an.l labor. It is the
government's duty to see that they
get depots: and no outside couipliea
tions should be admitted.
Tiik colleagues of the unfortunate
Breckinridge continue to bring up
facts of a more or less painful nature
in the retrospect, one of them being
that the lust legislative work he did
before taking liis place in court as de-
fendant was tlic introduction of two
bills for the promotion of general mor-
alitv. They di.l not bear that title, of
course. One Is a bill requiring people
who live in boats on navigable rivers
to take out a license for so doing,
which would subject them to the same
regulations as steamboat men and
others on the river have to observe
The bill is evidently aimed at the man-
agers of tra.llug boats, which often do
a very thriving business on the Ohio
when steamboats are delayed by bars
or otherwise. The laws about Sunday
li.|„or selling and the like are often ig-
nored on such boats. The other lireck-
inridge bill is one to prevent secular
labor on Sunday in the district and
other places subject to congressional
i legislation, except in cases of extreme
Ehwakii Atkinson, the Iloston stat-
istician, has been working over the
census statistics relative to mortgages,
and as tl,e result shows that the real
estate mortgageindebtednessof twelve
counties in New York and New Jersey,
in which are situated the chief cities
of that section, aggregate 1,280,000,-
000, which is 21.25 per cent of the en-
tire mortgage debt of the country, and
51 per cent of the aggregate of mort-
gage indebtedness in what is called
the west. He further shows that the
farmers of the great Mississippi valley
control the nation, being creditors
more than debtors, even in respect to pjjRRY,
their money obligations. All of which
is bad for the demagogues who prate
about the money power.
1'om II. Keko is triumphant. Dem-
ocracy was forced to adopt his quorum
counting rule, denounced by demo-
crats heretofore asdespotic and damn-
able! This is the rule for which they
dubbed him "Czar Reed." Every re-
publican voted yesterday to adopt the
Reed rule, and forty-seven democrats
voted against it. It was a magnificent
republican triumph and llee.l got a
wild ovation from the republican side.
The old law of 1840, which forfeits
salary for absence, except on account
of sickness, was also adopted. So
there is an end to the "no quorum
