TJogtntilng vritli tho day succeeding tho
Inauguration of President Clovolnixl, tin
Washington concspondonts ami tho Well
ington newspapers, for tbat matlor havo
ground rut a doleful tuno of sympathy for
tlio Cabinet olllcors and heads of Depart
ments In tliclr struggles with tho ollloi
seikors. It has been represented that groat
irobs of pcoplo havo constantly boitogod
tl o doors of tho Cabinet ministers, and that
processions of place-hunters havoblockidocl
tho Department corridors, rendering thn
transaction of business lmposilblo and
making tho llfo of nn ofllcc-hoidcr n bur.lou
to himself and his frlonds.
Only yostorday, It Js alleged by n morn
ing contemporary, ono Cabinet rnlnlitor
was compelled to close his doors ou tho mob
for fear of being trampled to death,
Thcro has novcr been a word of truth In
theso startling assoveratlons, and their
"damnablo Iteration" lias workod mow
' prcjudlco to tho loading ofllco-holdcrs than
kll their rofusnls to mako doslred appoint-
incuts. I'nbllo business must bo transacted,
end whenever a Cabinet ofUcor retires from
leforoa delegation of six or eight eltlzons
Id order to illsposo of urgent matters, tho
prcis unites in saying that ho "closed Ills
t'oorsontbo howling mob to otcipo being
trampled to death."
Wo protest against theso falsa and mis
leading statement. Slnco Inauguration
wck tho applicants for olllco havo at no
tlmo constituted n mob,, and, during tho
past six weeks, havo scarcely risen to tho
dlinoistonsof a crowd. Why thonglvo lb)
country to understand that threo-fourtln
it Its citizens aro horo for ofllec, when tU)
Tiycrso Is true? Why plnco tho Cablnic
onicois In tho position of flocing from thi
uiob of place-hunters, when thoy havo bad
no occasion to Qco ?
Tbo right of petition continues to ho a
dlvlno right, and tho nowspapcra which
icprcsont our public servants as running
away from tholr sworn dutlos or seeking
to avoid that which thoy know must foil iw
tholr acccptanco of olllco, aro doing a gravo
Irjustico to tho Cabinet.
The Cabinet has no right to compliln of
tho placo huntora. This Is a frco country,
end an honest cltizon has as good reason
to ask for tho collcctorshlp of his district,
as a Senator has to seek an appolntmont to
tho Cabinet. Wobollovo tho prosont Cabi
net baa neither complained nor Bhown sur
prise, but on tho contrary has ondeavorod
to );rect with cordiality and dororonco the
delegations which havo called to Intorost
thoso In authority In tho matter of ap
pointments. Therefore tho nowspapcrs that represent
the ofllco-seckors as "a howling mob," an!
tho Cabinet as fleeing from that which thoy
havo no right to seek to avoid, aro dolug
tho gravest lnjustlco to tho Administration,
and woikingaprejudlco thntyiars of great
deeds may not remove.
Tlifl r.lulil-Ycnr Theory.
Now that tho OTovorumont clerks aro
assured that tbo present Administration
will duly enforco the Clvit-Sorvlco law, It
may not occasion alarm to say that practi
cal Republican statesmen liko Senator
1'lumb aro opposed to many of tho Civil
It is a pleasant fiction which somo
clerks and oDlctala havo repeated bo often
as to become thomsolvca convinced of its
truth that about nino-tcnths of tho proa
cut employes aro exports, and so indlspen
cable that tbo Government would go to
smash without their sorvlcos. It Is fright
ful to thluk bow easily tbo Republic could
lo reduced to anarchy by a fatal cpldomlc
of moaslca among tho Departments.
Senator Plumb, liko a great many states
n en, Is opposed to tho creation of an office
holding class as an idea repugnant to ovory
prlnclplo of frco government. Hobtdloves
that removals In a cortaln class of ofllces
honld not bo mada for political reasons,
but that theso employes should bo rcckoood
on their merits. Tho best foaturo of tho
now doctrine Is, that no person should be
allowed to servo tbo Government In any
capacity boyond a poriod of oight years.
Ills argument is that tho young men all
over this country should bo encouraged to
seek that knowledge of national alTilr
which a brief term of Govornmont servlco
would yield, with tho distinct understand
ing that bis service was only ediicitionai,
and that under no circumstances would ho
be permitted to become a barnaclo.
This would furnish tbo Government
with a constant stream of bright, actlvj
men now, and raise up a crop of groat
statesmen for tho futuro. Moreover, such
a course would provent tho building up
of an office-holding class, and savo hun
dreds of men from being dwarfed tn body
and mind by tho routluo of twenty your)
or more of Government employment. Ic
would placo an lusurrnouutublo barrier
against tbo pousloning of civil office
holders from tho publlo Treasury and
would estop tho nation from robbing men
it a livelihood In the pursuit of prlvat)
In a government whero every citizen is a
aotor, and tho humblost rag-picker a po3
ilble candldato for tbo Presldonoy.lt does not
appear to bo necessary to build upon office
holding class as a specially favorod few,
it hose knowledge of publlo affairs Is to
rrake thorn forever Indispensable to tbo
Government. If the machinery of.tho Ki
tubllobas become thus Intrlcato and prob
lematical, perhaps It would be well to abol
ish the Departments entirely and got back
to a government by a proildency o.-acon-mlate.
NplrllnnllatN In Court.
St. Louts is nothing if not sensational.
Her latest exploit is a prosecution of cer
tain spiritualistic rnodiuniB on the chargo
of obtaining money by false pretenses, and
the dally newspapers of that city gtvo
joges of space, to tba testimony, Inter
larded with wood-cuts of tho witnesses.
Tho sensational phase of tho trial is
the evldonco given by promlnont lawyors,
thyslclans and preacberj, who for the first
lime publicly avow tholr belief In spirit
ualism and rob ear so their marvelous ot
rerlonces In tbo prosonce of a crowded
court-room. The most Interesting testi
mony thus far elicited Is that given by ox
Judge Thomas J, Portia, ohiof attornoy of
the Gould system of railroads and thn
Western counsellor of Mr. Gould himself.
Judgo Portia has for fifteen years been
eminent at tho bar and always regarded as
a piactlcal, matter-of-fact man, whoso cjtl
mato of shams and frauds conll bo rollod
Yet Judgo Portia told tho court that tha
ghostly visitants In whom ho bollovcd told
him thcro wcio cities aud schools, churchos,
railroads, gas-works and fino theatres In tho
spirit-world ; that thcro wore, dlssipatod
spirits who accompanied tholr earthly
friends to saloons and imbibed alcoholic
perfumes; that thcro wcro spirits who, by
educating and dovoloping their earthly
knowledge, hecamo nil-wise, and. wcro thou
placed In "tho universal fatherhood of
God;0 that ho had seen tho modlum, thon In
court, suddenly lifted to tho colling In her'
chair during broad daylight, and that sho
cculd, If sho so desired, rlso from her placo
In tho court and wrllo her namo ou tho
celling of tho court-room.
"If sho'll do that I'll dismiss tho caso
light hero," said tho prosecuting attornoy;
but tho challctigo was not accoptcd, and tho
trial is still in progress,
Tho Now York H'orW dontos that Mr.
Cbailcs Gibson over owned or now owus n
penny's worth of stock In tho St. Ij tills
I'cst-Dlfjmtch; or that ho awns or over his
iwned a penny's worth of stock in tho
H'crW. Tho denial Is mado In contradl
ton of a wldcly-dlssomlnatod story to tho
ctntrary, which also relates that bccamn
of thuso business relatione, tho editor of tho
World desired tho appolntmont of Mr. Gib
ton ns Mlnlstor to Germany, and bolag dls
arpolntcd In tho mattor thereupon dcclarol
war upon Mr. llayard.
Till! Wasiiinoton CntTic, In n purely
disinterested effort to explain how It hap
ronod that a high and mighty organ of tho
National Dcmoctacy should proceed to pul
verize tho Democratic; Secretary of State
beforo ho had been two months in olUco,
suggested wlint tho grlovanco might be.
For this wn aro charged with an "unwhole
some tlllorcsceuco," which tho IIVM pur
poses to "nip In tho bud," adding with an
elegant superfluity of words that "it Is ai
a shoestring to a tan-yard The Washing
Kin Ciiitio will not tako tho troublo to
concct Its mlstatcmonts." But thoro Is
i)( thing mean about The Ciiitio. If we
havo been guilty of an "unwholcsomo otllor
i fcc n co" or anything elso unpalatablo to our
(Stccmcd contemporary, wo stand cheer
In tho mcantlmo our original question,
which Is the only ono of importanco In tho
matter, remains open and uncorroctod
"Why this warfare ou Secretary Biyard?''
An nnwholcsomo rllloicsconco should not
only bo "nipped In tho bud," but pulled up
by tho roots.

Tho wide border with which The Wash
ington Critic was presented to Its rcalots
yesterday, and Is again presented today, Is
not a pretty thing to look at, nor Is it In
tended as ono of tho many Improvements
In tho paper which the public has boon
It la simply a mechanical necessity im
posed by having to print Tub Came,
during tho trying process of removal, upon
a press of dllfeiont slzo from Its owu, but
tbo troublo will soon bo ovor. To-day's, we
aro pleased to state, will bo positively our
last appearance In this grotesque aud some
what outlandish shapo.
The National Jockey Club courso and
grounds ate now In tho most attractivo con

spring vcrduro, present oua of tho most
beautiful landscapo viows In tho country.
Thcro is no racc-courso In America with
such a charming and picturesque outlook
as can bo enjoyed from the grind stand and
club-houso of this jockey club association.
Thcte aro somo two bundrod racing stcods
now qt the track taking their dally oxor
clco and training, preparatory for tho spring
meeting, which cornnionces on Tuosday
next. Tho managers of. tho association aro
untiring in their efforts to mako tho meet
ing noxt week ono of tho most attractivo In
Its successful racing history.
Tin: individual who fired ou tho Presi
dential train yesterday was probably greet
ing tho party with nothing more tliau a
friendly saluto, though bis enthusiasm may
have rondered him n trifle careless with
his gun. No other theory of the caso can
bo entertained in theso piping times of
peace. Tbo homicidal crank businoss wont
out with tbo grand old party.
Mb. Henry Wattebson having visited
Washington and looked at things with a
microscope, announces with something of a
dramatic flourish that tho Administration
Is all right and that bo will support It.
With such encouragement as this tho Ad
ministration can look forward to a warm
summer without any fear of much dis
comfort. Senator Vooriieeh refusos to discuss
any such proposition as that Mr. Cleveland
may provo disloyal to his party or tho prin
ciples npou which It elected him. "My con

theory of their own.
