It is prnbnblo tliattlio investigation
of tlio Civil Service Commitsion which
hns just ended will lead to no sutlsfac
toiy conclusion either way. The llotiso
committee is veiy npt Jo take tlio
ground that tlio business which they
have mainly in hand is to uatch impar
tially Into Uiowoiking of the system,
nnd nce'ouliugly it is quite- likely that
thoy may rcgnul tho administrative
mishaps which somo of tho Co-minis-Moncts
have incurred as of slight, im
portance, and as having littlu bcnlng
on tho general question.
J'eyond doubt Commissioner Lyman
favored brolher-in law Campbell, but in
such circumstances men will act simi
larly to tho close of lime whether there
bo Civil Scrvico law or no Ciil Set vice
law is immateiial. Beyond question
Sir. liooscvelt was only half-informed
in the affair of the Milwaukee post-jna-teiship,
but a good deal will be for
given to new zeal and fieshnoss of
knowledge in relation to olllclnl mnn
iifKnient. Jlut what cannot bo easily explained
er set aside is the strange1 and utterly
inndi quale method by which the Com
Million undeitook lo try imp nt.int
ft'.eliils and icpoit upon their cllluicncy
or unn-clllcicncy their confoiniily or
non-conformity lo law. Postmaster
I'mil of Milwaukee was invustl.iluil
by the Commission. What was accepted
ns testimony against him was in no
sent-c lejnl evidence. The Commission
( r its icpiesentatives were not em
poweicd to tend for persons or p.i)cis
They simply constituted themsolvus a
laruu and facile auiicular rocopt'iclo
for whatever informers might choose
to dump iu that quiuter. Postmaster
Paul knew nothing of the so called evi
dence against him, and could neither
-review not rebut the icpoit in his ease.
This mode of proceeding will fctriko tl
average mimi as uctng uuiair anilr-tin
Ameiican, and the censnrjrvvhlch
should weigh most hcayity'ou tho Com
mission should bo im-tliis account.
Thk CniTipsm favor of tho merit
system ami all that can promote the ease,
equanimity and permanence of ouc of
the largest, most win thy and most in
telligent classes of our citi.ens. I5ut it
is not picpared to justify secret and one
sided investigations of public officials.
There U no proper reason (or making
out leports on hear-say evidence, and,
undoubtedly tho most glaring A'rong
of which the Civil Scrvico Commission
has been guilty is of this nature.
Whatever conclusion tho committee
may anivo at tho investigation will
impiess tho people at largo with the
belief that tho picsent Commissioners i
are not particularly clllclent. Whether ludicious mistake,
this belief in their inetliciency is due to rL,,KJK r wrItl from ljouam t0

There's a good deal of politics out in
Ohio at present. The Legislature is
Democratic and has recently pissed u
bill, which hecimo n law, "correcting"
tho Congressional districting of tho
State by thulJepublicans.
The city of Dayton, which is usually
Democratic In spito of Major Bill Uick
ham and his Journal, elected n llopub
lican council. Taking si hint from the
Democratic Legislature, tho Dayton
Republican Council proposed to "cor

tlio Democratic Legislature look a hint

passed a bill preventing the councils of

is one, from redlyiding tho city Into

A FOOLISH M'll'i:,
Vhen Stanley volunteeicd to go to the
rescue of Kmin I'asha, beleaguered by
the forces of the Mahdl in the southern
Soudan, the whole clvilbcd woild had
nothing but words of praUo for his
courageous enlcrpiise. "When ho dis

which crew into years, for tidings from

Finally tho Idea that theio wns an

gested to tho New York World. But it
xvas noted upon in a way that broueht

The latest chnrgii brought against
Stanley Is tho foolish ono thai ho
bioughl Ihnln nwny by force; that
I'nitii did nol want to bo rescued. Tlio
plain fart is that Kmin had lost all con
tiol over, his troops and was destitute of

Tim country 1ms by this lime settled
down 1.0 the consideration of tho propo
sition of the silver men to the olfoct
that the (ioveinment should bo com
pelled to buy their out-put at tho rale of
four or flvo million dollars' woith a
montli, and issue in ictiirn certificates
I of that value which should circulate as
legal tender and general currency.
I llnully had oppottunity Tor this con

I Parmcrs' Alliance of America came for-
waid with its 'chenio for tlio putchase
by the (tovernmtnt of all products of
tho soil, their storage In pioper county

of their value.
Later still ciiinu Senator Slanfoid
who not only proposes tho unlimited
coinage of silver, but also a law by
which tho Federal Government shall
loun money on leal estate at ono or two

ingstone, picsiucnt of tho Farmers'
Alliance of Georgia, with a plan that
tho Government shall advance money
to fainicrs"on growing crops in tho
field to the extent of eighty perccnt.
of their estimated value." This last
pioposition seems to cup tho climax.
It would make the United Slates Gov

and insurance agent.
