Htl to tmitdlc the roantry to tfce et

II tut human after all to sympathize
wRk Mrsaalh and ctwistatrcy ami to a.
tmae that tfa caws which Is feebly or
tlnMly aspcutjeri can hardly be worthy
cf inccM. Yesterday, for at least the
third time daring the tesaton, the
Democrats threw away the opportunity
far a reat party victory, and calls 1 re
newetl attention to the contrast pre
tented by their own faint-hearted Indif
ference m opposed to the resolute vigor
and purpose of the ltepvtuHcans.
It la difficult to understand Demo
crat who could abent themselves at
such a time, on any pretext whatsoever.
The Infamous force bill which Heed
and Davenport are endeavoring to rush
tltrong.li Congress Is confessedly a bill
to emasculate the Democracy. It Is the
most tyrannical ami Insolent measnre
over concocted In a free country so
flagrantly to that Heed cannot hold his
f 01 ess together in its support, and Is
compelled, as was the case yesterday,
to rely upon Democratic folly to save Its
life. We repeat, It Is tlllrlctilt to under
stand the Democrats who, knowing
Jlectt's predicament, voluntarily went
to his rescue.
It teems a proper time to remark that
there are a good many members on both
skies of the House whose function In
statesmanship begins and ends with the
casting of their vote for or against meas
ures that have been devised by others.
The dissemination of garden seed and
the log rolling for local appropriations
may answer all the expectations of an
Inuocent constituency, but there U a
larger obligation resting upon every
Ocgnsiman, and that is the obligation
to cast the weight of his vote In favor
of the tight and against tliu wrong. It
may safely be said of seven out of every
ten numbers, Hepubllcans anil Demo
crats, that when they default In this
they lose their chief opportunity of be

MRS. CLEVELAND'S MAIL.
It la I'lllnl Willi I.cttem frnm All
Sort f 1'enpln,
From M .Yw York It'orM.
Mrs. Cleveland's mail has not suffered
any diminution since she left the White
Home. How dear she Is to the women
and the school girls of America Is best
expressed in the notes and cards that
continue to come from the North,
South and West filled with "sorrow
that she could not have remained," and
"Lopes, prsyeis and aood wishes for
hir return next time.' The sincerity
and genuineness of these expressions of
admiration is found In the addresses
acd full names of the fair writers. The
breslng lettirs sre simply countless,
and the audacity of the scribblers in
credible. Her Interest Is Invited to unpaid poli
cies, expiring leases, foreclosed mort
psges ami overdue unt. to sick chil
dren, unemployed men and women, am
bitious and Irripoverlahcd students,
artists and specialists, and asylumi,
homes, churches, schools and societies
of every creed, character and need.
Autocraphs, jewels, personal property,
book; . Americana, plate, china, wear
ing apparel and decorative artworks
are offered for purchase or disposal, and
Inventors and designers of overy Im
aginable article of toilet, household and
mechanical use appeal to her for influ
ence or financial asItance.
The autograph hunters are legion,
and then there are those contemptible
busy ladles who hunt up disagreeable
paragraphs and send them to her pasted
on the back of postal cards.
Mrs. Cleveland Is too sensible to allow
these intrusive letters to annoy her, and
too wise to pay any attention to the
frivolous ones. It is, however, worthy
of note that reduced to currency the
postage of these almleas letters would
amply pay for the lady's gloves, shoes

Among the Inheritances from the
Administration of Mr. Buchanan was
all application for the rofsswe of a lot
of confirm bonds alleged to hare been
detlroyed. The claimants' proved the
facia a clearly ss hnmsn tesllmmiy
coord that these bond, each with sit
coupons attached, were deposited In a
locked mall bag In Frankfort, trans
ported to Ilrpool and there delivered
into the hands or an agent of the Post
office on board a steamship which was
wrecked by collision and went with all
Its mails, and all but two or three of
those on board, to the bottom of the
The completeness of the evidence was
of Itself a source of suspicion, and,
much to the chagrin of the claimants,
Secretary Chase affirmed the decision of
a bureau officer, that the duplicate
should not be Issued, except by the
direction of Congress. On the appli
cation of the claimants at the next ses
sion. Congress passed an act directing
the issue of the duplicates. The claim
was again presented with the net and
the duplicates were demanded. The
same bureau officer again represented
his suspicions to the Secretary, and,
with the sanction of the latter, the
present regulation was adopted, inter
posing a delay of twelve months after
jiroof of the claim before the actual
tame. This rule was vehemently as
sailed by the claimants through the
prist; they even charged the officer
will. Intentionally nullifying the au
thority of Congress.
At this time the coupons of bonds re
deemed were in packages in the regis
ter's file room. There was little need
of their examination ami no attempt hat
been made to arrange them In consecu
tive order. Hooks were now made
with one page appropriate to each bond,
ami a apace for each coupon, while a
force ol clerks were detailed to place
each redeemed coupon In its appropri
At the expiration of the year the
claimants came for their duplicates.
They were assured that they would now
be Issued unless some satisfactory rea
son could be shown for further delay.
The books were sent for and In their
proper space were found all the cou
pons which had been proved to have
sunk to the bottom of the sea, A few
months later the bonds themselves were
presented for redemption, and no ad
verse claims being msdo they were paid.
What was the explanation of this
mystery? I do not know The pressure
ol olllcial duties nnd the anxiety of war
which occupied us so Incessantly pre
vented any further Investigation, and
the inquiry will probably never be an
swered. The next fraud which I recall was a
success as far as the Department wns
concerned. The loss of money was pre
vented by an accident.
The course of proceeding for tho
collection of s claim for army supplies
wat mually this: Tho contractor mtde
his collections through his banker.
His monthly account was made up In
conformity with all the rules of the
War Office, and tranfmittetl to that
rfflce with a letter of directions where
tho draft thnuld be scut. The War
Oillce appiovid the claim if correct
srd transmitted the account, the letter,
and the action of tho War Department
to the Secretary of the Treasury, by
whom it wat-sent to the proper auditor,
whose duty It wns to audit the claim.
If ho decided that the claim wot a
proper onu, it was sent to the comp
troller, who revised the action of the
auditor and, If correct, approved it,
sending the amuunt with the accom
panylng documents to the Secretary,
who Issued the warrant for its payment.
This warrant was counter tlgnwl by
the Comptroller and entered on the
books of the Hegister.theTrea surer then
drew his draft upon one of the deposi
tories for Its payment, and the draft
was sent by mall according to the origi
nal letter of instruction, which consti
tuted one of the Hie patters. The tile
wu then seat to the Register's file room,
and there remained. It comprised all
the papers, showing a complete history
of the transaction.
On the occasion In question the cashier
of one of the Washington banks came
to the ottice of the register with a draft
Just Issued for more than $feO,000, pay
able to a well known Massachusetts con
tractor and regularly indorsed. It had
been presented by the head porter of
Wlllard'e Hotel, a reliable man, who
said the payee was ill and unable to
leave his room. He had therefore re
quested him to collect tho draft In notes,
if possible, of 1,000 each. Without
any apparent reason the cashier said his
suspicions were excited, and he went
with the porter to the hotel to see the
payee, and be sure the transaction was
all right. But the sick gentleman bad
disappeared. He had probably watched
the porter, and finding there was delay
in the payment, had vanished.
The file was sent for and the letter
found directing that the draft be sent to
the contractor at Wlllard's Hotel. He
was communicated with by telegraph
and sakl that the letter was a forgery.
He had elves the tame directions In this
ease as (h his former collections.
This fraud was consummated by an
outsider with the assistance of a clerk
Is the Treasury. No outsider could
have obtained access to the fUce ia order
to remove the true letter asd substitute
Ike forgery. Suck a fraud could not be
prevented by any system. Fortunately

Colonel Jack Brown, who Is some
times mistaken, netnap, but who Is
sometimes all right in his political
prognostications, declares that Den
ning, as postmaster, Is a sour dose for
seme of the Augusta (Ga.) tlenubltcsns,
and that his appointment has not been
received with a song of praise.
R. If. Wright, a seedy Waok school
teacher of Augusta, who. Colonel Jack
swears, has more political sense than the
whole Georgia Republican machine
combined, Is In Washington, ami Is pre
pared to vltrlollre Denning If the op
portnnity presents. Some grave charges
against the new appointee are being
bandied about, but they d i not properly
belong in a newspaper unless the proofs
are at hand to substantiate them.
The return of General Clarkson Is
locked for with some sort of eagerness
by the antl Denning people; but what
they hope to get out of him Is purely a
matter of conjecture. The President
and Clarkson probably undent tnd each
other, and It 1 hardly probable that the
subordinate will attempt to undo what
his chief has thought proper to do dur
ing his absence. As the matter stands,
It may be safely assumed thatJabex

A RIOT NEARLY PRECIPITATED.

CoM-JtmA, S. C, July 3. At no
meeting of the present State campaign
lias such bad blood been displayed as
yesterday at Wlnnsborough, the home Of
General Ilratton, one of the candidates.
General ilratton was accorded a respect
ful silence from the crowd who listoned
to him. General Earls' speech wns in
terrupted by yells nnd cries Of "Sit
down" and "Let the man tpeak, "You
can't change us, we are going to put
Tillman In," "Run him out, boys."
When Captain Tillman aroso It was
fully five minutes before he could
speak, so irreat was the applause on one
tide and the hissing on the other. Af
ter speaking n short while he said some
thing that again put the crowd to yell
ing, nnd all ciTorts to silence them were
In vain. Some one told htm to sit
down. This produced the wildest ex
citement. A core of Tillman's fol
lowers ruihcd on tho stand and lifted
Tillman from the scat Into which he
had dropped and carried him to thu
cdae of the platform. They swore hu
At this point the attention of tho au
dltnce was callid to the fact that twenty
of Mr. Tillman's supporters on the
stand had their hands on their plttois.
At this announcement there was the
greatest confusion. The ladles tied
from the meeting, and an eye witness
reports a hundred pistols In sight at the
same mement. A terrible riot was mo
mentarily expected nnd a single shot or
blow would have brought it on. The
tension was very great until the end of
the most heated meeting of tbe cam

An Unexpected Momluatlon,
Congressman Ray of the Twenty,
fourth Pennsylvania district was unex
pectedly defeated for a renomlnatlon
yctterday, Colonel Andrew Stewart of
Fayette capturing the prise on the
third ballot. He only had two votes
on the first ballot, his own county be
ing opposed to him, as tbe delegates
had been chosen by the Quay faction.
He is the son of the famous "Tariff
Andy" Stewart, who represented the
district forty three years ago, and, as
he is exceedingly popular, may save
the district to th'e Republicans.
