SATURDAY, MAHCil 20, 1880.
IT WILL BE GLEAN SWEEP.
There arc very few who appreciate
the rapidity with which ofllclnl
changes nro daily made. Mr. Cleve
land has not been in ofllcc a year,
but he has made over25,000 changes,
and it is believed the full year's
work will aggregate 00,000. It will
be largo enough at any rate to indi
cate a clean sweep before tho presi
dent's term of ofllcc expires.
About thirteen hundred men have
been appointed to important olllccs;
and these men have caused within
the law fully live thousand changes.
lias decapitated 15,000 fouith
chiss postmasters, and he is woiking
with steadiness and incicasing dis
patch. Postmasters and internal
revenue collectors and u host of
other ofllcials are making minor ap
pointments in all cases where they
have the right of removal and ap
pointment; and altogether it is
certain full oiic-quartcr of the entire
civil service will bo in democratic
hands by the fourth day of i.iext
It is computed that decapitation
has gone on at tho average rate of
twelve per hour the olllcial working
day being eight hours. One head
has dropped in tho olllcial basket
every live minutes dining the year
nearly ended. If this pace is main
tained, the great work will be fully
accomplished inside of the limit.
The olllcial axe will doubtless move
faster and freer as tho headsmen
become familiar with the work in
hand, and practically one more year
will revolutionize our civil service,
and give the people a good oppor
tunity to make up their minds as to
the value of the change. President
Cleveland is a very busy man, and
we may depend upon it that he is
making changes as rapidly as he can
without detriment to the public ser
vice. He is holding fast to the civil
service reform act, and is working
the axe vigorously outside of it.
A BIG STATE.
The ticket agent's experience at a
station on the Main Central railroad
in selling a lady and a boy a ticket
to Montana has been the rounds of
the papers. This lady didn't care
in what part of the great territory
she landed, provided she got to
Montana. Her husband was in
Montana, and she wanted a ticket
to go to Montana. The ticket agent
tried to reason with the woman and
explain matters to her by enumer
ating the principal stations and
towns to which he sold tickets in
that territory, but to no avail. The
lady wanted a ticket to Montana
and would take nothing less ; so tho
agent selected one to such station as
lie saw fit. She paid for it and took
the train. At Danville Junction she
and her boy and traps were trans
ferred to the Grand Trunk. At
"West Paris, Me. , tho lady and boy
got off the train. The conductor
noticed her as his train was leaving
tho station, and, knowing that she
was ticketed for a long journey, he
stopped tho train and said: "Look
here, madam, what arc you off here
for? You arc not at the end of your
journey. Come on board, will you?"
The lady was nonplussed, and as
she gathered up her bundles she told
tho conductor she understood him to
say that that station was Montana,
and sho supposed she'd got there.
She thought it was time to be there,
anyhow. Tho conductor told her
she would think it "was time" to
get there after sho had mien five
days and five nights.
"Why, lady," said tho uniformed
gentleman, "you are not out of the
state of Maino yet." "Law!" re
joined the lady, as she passed into
tho car, "what a big state this is 1"
From the Norway (Me.) Adver
tiser. ANOTHER ROUTE.
Manitoba is quito enthusiastic
over the report of tho engineers who
have just gone over tho proposed
route of a railway from Lake Win
nipeg to James Hay, the southern
arm of Hudson's Bay. The lino is
pronounced entirely practicable, and
the engineers think it will not cost
more than $8,000,000., It is not
easy from this point of view to un
derstand why the Manitobans should
be so exultant over the certainty
that there would bo no difllculty in
building a railroad to the mouth of
tho Nelson River. The great ob
stacle in the way of n route to
Europe by way of Hudson's Hay is
ice, not lack of railroads. If a way
could bo discovered to keep Hudson
Strait open for even three months
every summer between Hudson's
Bay and tho ocean all would bo
plain sailing for the projected new
route, but whether or not that can
be done is very doubtful.

rpiIE umloihlgncd, n Committee of Di
X rectors ot the Equltablo Lifo As
surance Society of the United States ,
appointed to formulate the views of tic
Hoard on tho advantages offered by tho
Society to the public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all tho approv
ed forms of nssuiance, including Oidl
nary Life, Eudowmeut and Tontlno po.
Uclcs. It Is immaterial to the Directors
which lorm of policy is taken liy 111.
Sd The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide lor animal cash divi
dends inula surrender value; nro indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
iiil The premiums on a Tontlno po
licy are tho banie as on the Ordinary
Lile, but, while tho latter is only pay
able ill the event of d?nth, the holder of
tho Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve anil the accu
mulated profits in rash at tho end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, utter his producing years aro past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an oidiuary policy, tecum these
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of tho
assurance will bo only nbout tho Interest
on tho premiums.
Cth Tontlno policies, liko others, nro
paid in lull iu tho event of death at any
timo during tho term of tho policy, nnd
are Incontestable after three years, and
payablo Immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that tho mor
tallty is lower among Tontine policy,
holders, as the better lives bcek this
kind of assmaiices, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontlno policies will bo made
non-forleitablo under tho laws of tho
Stute, If so desired at the time tho us
surunco Is effected.
bth The Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts aro accurately kept,
separate from all other business; tho
funds judiciously Invested nnd improv
ed, nnd tho accumulated piotlts faith
fully guarded and properly uppoitioned.
Uth The Society has since its organi
zation uuubacted a lurger amount of
new business than any other company,
whilo its new business for the first half
of tho present year is $1,700,000 larger
than that of the llrst half of 1881. It
