New ontc, July 38 The Sun to
day says editorially: Is the President
nwnro of the line of defense adopted by
lits friends with regard to the Whlto
House scandals, the real estate trans
actions at Capo May Point, nt Olon
Echo and who knows whoro besides?
Tlio last word that has been said or
that can be said In General Harrison's
behalf Is that ho, a truly honorablo
man with n keen eenso of olllclal pro
priety and personal dignity, Is tho Inno
cent victim of wicked partners In tho
This plea for General Harrison would
be comical In tho extreme if tho busi
ness wcro less serious for the nation that
Is humiliated before tho world by any
exhibition of greed and moral obtuse
iicss on the part of Its Chief Magistrate.
It is said. In substance, that the Presi
dent saw clearly from tho first tho Im
propriety of tho Cape May Point trans
actions, and always intended to pay for
the sift cottage, and that. In fact, he
has 'finally paid $10,000 to extricate
himself from tho fatso position Into
which ho was forced by the mercenary
cn-'crncss t f n less scrupulous person, a
member of lib own family.
It Is MM. also, In substance, that
General Harrison Is not personally con
cerned In the Glen Echo business; that
the affair was arranged without hU
knowledge and approval; that his keen
scree of olllclal propriety would have
Impelled 1)1 in to put n stop to this In
direct tale of olllclal Influence, If he had
suspected what was on foot.
In other words, both of the While

Senator to rewl the menettre carefully
and to give the committee the benefit ot
his beet judgement tn to any changes
which ought to be rrmde in Its language
or provisions Messrs. Hour ami
Spooner expect to receive replies to-day,
and the measure will be submitted to a
cartcus very wo, perhaps to night.
It turns out that the majority of the
Elections Committee have done some
thing more than smooth down the
phraseology of the House bill. One of
the most Important provisions of the
Lodge bill was that bringing Into life
the old law authoring the employment
ol troops at the mils. This has been
cut out, and It Is not likely that the
caucus will Instruct Mr. Hoar to put It
back. The opposition to the "bayonet
clause" has proved too slrong for the
committee. It U understood that the
House bill has been so changed as to
allow Ctrcutt Court Judges to use their
own discretion about ncceptlng super
vltors of election named by the chief
supervisors, so that the Judges may ap
point others If they think It advisable.
The Senate committee alo provides that
no person who has jot' in petitioning
for the proposed su" islon of nn elec
tion shall be appol .ed n supervisor.
Another Important change, It Is said,
Is an amendment by which an appeal
may be taken from the decision of a
Roaul of Supervisors to a Circuit Court
Judge. The latter s decision Is to be
final, and if any person presents a cer
tificate of election signed by n Circuit
Court Judgo his name must go upon
tho roll of tho House of Representatives
and stay there until tho Houso Itself
take It off. Messrs. Spoon er and Hoar
navo applied ine smoothing down pro
cess to tho provisions relatlvo to tho
verification of registry lists In small
cltlos so as to make them apparently less
objectionable. They have doDe" tho
same to the various penalty clauses, the
penalties In some cases being scaled
down and made less sevore than In the
That the bill will be accopted by the
caucus in just Its present shape Is not at
nil cettaln. It Is not satisfactory In all
Its parts to all of the Republican mem
bers of the Elections Committee. Some
of them havo reserved the right to offer
amendments horeaftcr, although they
join In submitting the measure to their
party colleagues. It remains to bo seen
how far their work will commend Itself
to the caucus. It will be much easier
to satisfy tho caucui as to tho terms of
the bill thau to find forty three Kepub
Means who will bind themselves to force
through the Benatu any bill the caucus
may indorse. That is the (tumbling
block In the way of the Force bill.

"One of the most dengeroui pro
visions of the Federal Election law Is
the possibility of tho appearance once

that the very law which was enacted by
a Republican Congress In the beat of

pretext for the exercise of that power.

in a message to the State Legbuature,
denounced it in vigorous language.

The visitors spent the time In conver

up over the band stand In front of head

the evolutions like machines, while
every command that was given sounded
