Secretary Kndicott Is consist
ently mid energetically endeavoring to
convince soldier? and civilians tliat
favoritism U to lose Its Inlliieuoo In
army appointments, assignments and
removals, and that merit and the needs
of tho service arc to outweigh all other
considerations. Sir. Kndlcott lias al
ready done many things to Inspho con
fidence In tho sincerity of Ids course,
but no action nor utterance has been
more emphatic than tho following
languago employed by him In a recent
letter to tho very lnlluetitl.il friends of
an olllcer whoso transfer had pro
voked vigorous ptotest :
Yoit will pardon mo If I sayuBlnglo word.
1 llnd It very common In tlio iirniy, wlien mi
olllcer Is rellovcd for proper reasons, Indeed
Cor necessary reasons. Tor him mid Ills friends
to remonstrate an If lio hudn peculiar right
to porform n peculiar duty; nnd his friends
nro very apt to think, because, lia docs not
Ilkotho removal, Hint bouio personal Injury
Is'cnst upon lilm, or somo rctlcctlon Is made
upon his cliimctor or tils services. Quito tho
contrary, ltcmovals ami nppolntmonts, so
fur us t know anything about thorn, or liavo
nnythliiBtodo with them, nro lnndo simply
becnuso tho good of tho servlco requires
them; nud this Is ono or thoso cases, nnd In
volves no discredit to tho officer.
This Is certainly n just aud manly
Etatcment of tho case that all right
minded olllcci3 will approve and ap
preciate. There Is nothing which they
have so much icasou todcploro and
condemn as favoritism In any uf Us
forms nothing upon which the lot vice
is more to be congratulated than hav
ing at tho head of tho War Depart
ment a fair nnd honorable gentleman
whoso actions preclude criticism.

There cati be no system of mote vi
tal Importance to this city than one of
tccognltlon and rowatd for bmvery and
energy or prompt and discreet action
on the part of the police. Nothing can
ho of gtenter Importance to the city's
welfare than an encouragement of vigi
lance, fearlessness and discretion on
the part of the custodians of tho peace,
ft 13 too seldom that wo hear of u pro
motion awarded asarcwaid for good
service, aud public sentiment will
warmly Indorse this tnodo of encourag
ing pollco olllccrs to do their best and
giving them to understand that their ef
forts arc appreciated. In tho ease In
which a promotion lias Just been made
In recognition of merit, It wa3 well de
sctved. Olllcer Wccdou Is one of tho
youngest though ono of the most ath
letic and llnest men, physically, on tho
force. Trained In tho care and custody
of ttio Bick, tho Indigent and tho insane
by his service as an (imbalance drivor,
accustomed to peril by his carper in tho
Fire Department, he brings all the
necessary qualities and experience Into
his work on tho force. Tho promotion
of such men in recognition of merit,
must be In every way bencllclal to the
Chief Shaw of tho Loudon File
Brigado Is now on his way to Now
York again. He evidently likes the
United States and will doubtless receive
a warm welcome. Somo years ago ho
had an English Idea that America had
everything to learn in regmd to tho
management of lives and tho organiza
tion of lire dcpaitmcnts. Ho soon dis
covered his mistake, however, although
it lias taken several visits to tlii- coun
try to modify I1I3 prejudices. It is
barely possibles that this time he will
carry somo American Ideas home with
him (or Introduction in tho London
'service. It Is doubtful if anywheioiu
tho world can bo found so eflicleut and
advanced a system for the extinguish
ment of 11 res in tho large cities of the
Tin: midsummer overhauling of the
"White House shows that never before
in tho annals of that historic mansion
has it suil'eied so much from tho wear
nnd tear of a single season. Tho liottso
was In excellent condition when Mr.
Arthur left it, but tho daily throngs of
olllcc-scckliig callers and the mighty
rush of visitors, euriou3 to seo tho
novelty of a Democratic Chief Magis
trate, have sprung tho stairways, worn
the lloors and defaced tho walls. Tho
effect which the events of six mouths of
the new Administration liQ3 had upon
the Inanimate contents of the Executive
Manglou sccina to encourage tint Idea
that Its living occupants have earned
their vacation, nnd are also in need of a
reason of rest and recuperation.
The cholera Is not tho worst thing
the young King of Spain has to fear If
there be auy truth hi tho icportcd dis
covery of a plot for his assassination.
It is a distressful condition of all'alrs,

outlook Is also big with portents of

A PAPER HAS bcon started In Lou
don known us the American Hijley and
Is dovoted to the lutorests of the Amer
ican exhibition of tho arts, Inventions,
manufactures, pioducts, uud resources
of tho United Stales. The paper claims
justly that tho exhibition will bo a now
ucrmrttiro la the history pf such nffaln,
It Is not to bo International. It will bo
essentially national, though .boyond tho
conllncs of our nation. It la to bo opened
on tlio 1st of May, 1S80. Tho advan
tages to bo derived from such an cxhl
bltlon nro manifold. Tho friendly re
lations between the United States and
England will be strengthened; Amcil
cin Inventors, manufacturers and pro
ducers will have for the first time an
admirable opportunity of presenting to
European nations and their colonies
tho many improvements mado during
the last halt of a century, and all the
States will he lepresontcd. It seems
that sufllclcnt progress has been made
already to secure a largo and almost
complete series of exhibits. As tho ex
hibition Is in good hands, is sanctioned
by ourOovcrnmei t and Is to bo perma
nent, wo may reasonably expect the
best of icstilts to follow.
There 18 a tacit understanding
pervading the Departments that nil
business pertaining topkicc-maklnguud
place-filling Is to conio as nearly to u
standstill as possible during tho sum
mer. Tills result Is brought about
mainly by an insinuation on the part of
tho President that appointments and
removals have received rather an undue
shaie of oillclal attention, and the time
has come for this disturbing clement to
be lifted out of the Department work
and attention to be turned to accumu
lated buslno3s. The Presidents lan
guage Is said to have suggested the Idea
that the great mass of the people nro at
least ns much Interested In having the
public business done as they arc In tho
question ot who shall do It.

The half century of tho relgu of
Queen Victoria will be completed June
20, 1837, but In accordance with pre
cedents Her Majesty's " Jubllco" will
be celebrated at tho beginning instead
of the end of the fiftieth 3'cnr, or on tho
20th of June, 1830, a circumstance
which the managers of tho American
Exhibition, to be held tho same sum
mer, look upon ns likely to lucreaio tlio
eclat of tho occasion and enhance tho
chances of Its success.
In a private letter to a friend In New
York, Hon. S. S. Cox says ho was
ptcscut at soveial sessions ot Parlia
ment, uud finds that he takes moro
naturally to that than to dlplomucy. If
Mr. Cox diopped In during one of tho
recent stormy i ernes In tho House of
Commons he must havo been forcibly
reminded of his old stamping ground
in the south end of the Capitol.
People who go to tho Whlto House
these days will llnd that cdlllco as much
hi the hands of Republicans as it
was beforo tho I'll of Maich. With
the President and Colonel Lamont
away, Ihcro is not a Democrat in the
Mansion, exeep'ing, poihaps, tlio stew

begins at home, President Clovclaud is
certainly hi very close proximity to it.
