C' ;a The now resolution Just reported by tho
?? Bouse Committee on Rules through Mr.
hf r Morbisos, Its Chairman, has been received
I with a genoral expression of satisfaction. It
y .' runs as follows:
? -It ahall ba In order, when anr f anaral tin or propo-
, HUon to tncreaae the ratea or atnonnta ot panilona, or to
lV '"" gnat penalona to peraona not prarlonalr entitled thereto

vr r The apparent objoct of this rulo Is to fur-
?;' " nlsh a chock against that rush of ponelon
I'" -' legislation with which tho Forty-ninth Con-
' gress threatens to bankrupt the Treasury.
4 Under tho bills alroady passed by the House
;,;, tor granting now pensions and Increasing
l old ones, the annual amount of money ro-
! " quired would noarly equal, and perhaps oz-
kf . coed, tho entire surplus revenue of the lost
&" i fiscal year.
W t Ingenious, howover, as this device Is, It
E' I day bo doubted whethor It will provldo tho
Kv; ', security desired. It Is only a makeshift In
i. ' place of uncompromlHlng firmness. What Is
ff;.- wanted of Mr. Morrison and every other
l membor of tho Commlttoo on Itulos, and all
& f. patriotic Congressmen, whatever their poll-
': y tics, Is to throw tholr votos directly against
g;' i, many of the ponslon Jobs that now threaten
:''. v to swamp tho revenue.

i p Not only by Catholics In all countries, but
5 y byProteetantobBcrvcrBofcontomporaryhls-
E v tory, the relations of the Papacy to King
fe " Huuscrt's Government are watched with a
m !. deep senso of tholr bearing on the fortunes
f , of tho Roman Church and of the now Italian
fit' '' monarchy. Is there a chance of any com-
& '' promlso which should even lnforcntlnlly In-
J.f .i Volvo a Papal recognition of tho right of tho
'ffM Savoyard dynasty to rule In Romo ? To this
m it question, anxiously dobatcd over slnco Pins
r p IX. was succeeded by tho present Pope, an
f i - unequivocal and final answor may bo read In
;. tho Injunction against participation In tho
r- i approaching general election Issued by tho
$' - Vatican to all Catholics, whether lay or cler-
f. , jr; leal, In Italy.
Sf " It Is true that Catholics had boon expressly
jb. forbidden by Pios DC. cither to voto or lot
" - themselves bo choson by voto to any ofllco
s 5 at elections hold by order of the Qovcrnmont
&. . which had wrested from the Papacy Its tern-
JS .parol possessions and oondemned It to the
''- 'A .narrow precincts of the Vatican. Doubt-
& P Jaws, too, that prohibition rcrualnod binding
Sj ' o long as it was not explicitly revoked by a
W ' later occupant of Bt. Pcteii'u chair. But as
f f . years passed, and Leo XIII. was observed
j ' to take a somowhat conciliatory attltudo to-
f : ward tho civil power In other countries,
f - -the Impression gained ground among
"' f, .Oathollo laymen, and was shared by
I' some members of tho clergy, that in
i;', ' -Italy Itself accomplished facts would
k ty and by bo recognized, and that
'5 'meanwhile abstention from elections might
' pot be rigorously enforced. It has, Indeed,
vj ' been plausibly maintained by somo steadfast
fe defenders of the Pope's temporal authority
ft- i that the usurping Oovernmont could bo most
? ffeotlvoly opposed by using tho weapons of
W f be franchise and of Parliamentary debate to
R; U,, orlpplo and discredit It. In tholr opinion no
fe f .. conjuncture could bo more propitious than
' ) the present to the Interposition ot a Clerical
fi; party at tho ballot box, 600lng that theLIb-
tf, trals now eoora Irroraodlably divided, and
toatthelropractlcablllty of forming a dura-
I ble majority In tho late Chamber of Dopu-
:.-, ' ties oompellcd a dissolution and a fresh ap-
j '' ' peal to the oluctors.

r Utoly ropollod by tho action of Leo XIII.,

k - )ho programmo of political boycott pro-
l v HaimcdbyPiuBlX. It Is settled, thon, that
ft-. M "e faintest sacrlflco of prlnclplo will be

S li how of acquiescence in tho status quo

A Very Oflenitvc Partisan.
Our esteemed contemporary, tho Keening
rout, has not qutto lost all Interest in tho
question ot the non-partisan record of tho
Life Saving Servlco. It may bo remembered
that ton or a dozen days ago tho l)t, with
an air ot superior knowledge, waved asldo
our statement that Mr. KurnALis lieu
tenant, District Superintendent RicrunD
bon, had been kept In office for years ppt
wlthstandlng his notoriously offonslvo par
tisanship. "Tub Sun knows vory little,"
our ostoomod contemporary was pleasod to
remark, "about tho management of tho
Life Saving Servlco In tho past, and would bo
greatly profited by a thorough Investigation
of tho subjoct."
It appoars that tho ilJsf has boon waiting
to hear from Superintendent Rioiiaiidson.
Fortlflod with his donlal of offonslvo parti
sanship In tho past, our esteemed contem
porary returns to tho subjoct:
"Tea f on recently charted that Capt J. at. RtcniiD
aox, Snpertntendentot the Flrat (Ualne) dlatrlct ot the
Ufa SevInK Service, waa an odenalva Republican par
tlaan. The Evening roil thereupon cited the taot that
folly half of hla aubordlnatia were Pemocrata aa pretty'
rood evidence that ha conducted the service upon bull
neaa principled Capt Ricnmifan haa alnce been
heard from, and makea an Interentlnf atatament lta
aaya that thla la not the flrat time that rarllian
ahlp haa been charted atalnat him. Under Repub
lican Admlnlatratlona nnmeroua complatnta wara
made to the Maine Senaiora and Repraeantatlvea,
a well aa to other leading Republicans at Wash
ington, that he was not a Republican, but a Democrat,
and ooiht to be removed, because In nlllnr racancleaha
rave Democrats the preference when they were the bet
ter men. Now that there la a Democratic Administra
tion, ha Is charged by Demoorate with having favored
Republicans, although fully half ot his man are found,
upon Inquiry aa to their political amtlatlona, to be Dem
ocrata. 'rromthe time the district waa organised to
the present time.1 Capt. Ricaiinaoif deolares, ths ques
tlon of a man's politics haa never been oonsldered, noth
ing buti man's fltnesa for the place, bhyslcally and
mentally, being taken Into consideration.' "
This certainly Is an interesting statement.
Wo havo not seen tho letter from Capt.Rlcn
abdson to which tho IXisl refers, but our
contemporary's, summary of its contents is
sufficiently comprehonslvo. Capt. Richard
son complains that under Republican rulo ho
was frequently charged with being too par
tial to able-bodied Democrats In making up
his orews, and ho assorts with earnostness
that slnco the First district was organized,
more than ton years ago, ho has novor con
sidered anything but a man's physical and
mental fltnoss In his administration of the
affairs of tho Life Saving Servlco on tho Maino
and Now Hampshire coast.
We wondor if this can by any possibility
bo tho same J. M. Richardson who, as Is al
leged on reeponslblo authority, wrote in bis
official capacity cortaln letters for tho politi
cal guldanco of the Captains of tho crews
under his charge Here Is a specimen, writ
ten at a time of great political excitement,
when a State election was pending In Maine,
and a Presidential election In tho country.
It was addressed by a J. M. Richardson to
tho keeper of ono of tho boat houses:
"Ornca or SurasinrBKnasiT )
"U. 8. Lira Satixu Stations, First District
"AosURlt. Me., Aug. 33. 187a )
"Gift. tl saw Mr. Farm, our M. C, this morn
ing, and he said It waa lmpoaalble to get a bill through
for the Increase of pay to Keepers, aa the Democrata
fought everything down that was any good, but he says
that as soon as Congress meets they wlU try It again.
And I have no doubt they will aucceed. And In the
mean time I hopeyou will do all you can for our Stat
and Preeldentlal eleotlona. Remember, every man who
la a Republican la wanted and MUST COME. We are
aara ot llaraa and WMaauia. bnt want to roll up euch a
majority as never waa known before. And want the
lame, sick, and lazy to vote. It they vote right. Do all
you can, and bear In mind one thing. In getting vour
crew this fall try and get RBPUHMOANS. DON'T FOR
GET IT. Yours, Aa, " J. M. Ricusboson."
The Evening FOel says that It has "caused
special Inquiry" tobomado In Richardson's
district, and finds that thoro Is now a fair
proportion of Democrats In his crows. That
would froom to lndlcato that ho has experi
enced a chango, not of heart, but ot methods,
since his tenure of office ceased to depend on
tho good will of Republican politicians.
Wo ask again If this Is tho same Richard
son who. In 187G, wrote on official paper to
ono of his subordinates :
X wantynu.lt poaalble. to get a whole Republican
crew for thla winter, aa I think rou can, by taking
time. Aa aomo of your old crowd I do not think a
great deal ot, thougk they may be all right. See what
you can do."
One more forgotton docuraont may bo of
lntorest to Richardson and tho Post :
"Ornca or ScrsainTaifOBrr )
"U.S. Lirx Siriifo stitioks. First District.
"Lawi8T0.v, Me, Bepl If, 1R70. )
"Cirr, : Iterewlth you will find 20 three, 10 one,
and 10 two-cent etnmns, which you will send receipt for.
Make them go aa far as possible, and uae for official bust
aaaonty. There will bono assembling ot the men at
the stations In Ootobcr, aa the Democrata made the ap
propriation ao email that there la no money to pay the
men. And you can tell your Democratlo Surfmen, they
have themselves, and their Stripe In Congress, to thsok
for It And alwaya don't let one of the breed Into the
Uousa, If you oan help it I shall want toaeethemto
pay them the amount due for July, and that will be all.

The Evening Post may not bo aware that
thoro has been on fllo in Washington for
months, patlontly waiting tho attention of the
reformers of tho civil servlco, a mass of affi
davits sufficiently exhibiting tho charactor
of RiciiAitDsoN's partisanship. Wo under
stand that such is tho case.
Does Supcrintondont Richardson deny
tho authorship of tho Iottors from which we
have quotod ? Are they forgeries, or was it
60 mo other Richardson ? Our extracts are
mado from sworn coplos atto&tod by names
known by us to bo responsible. Wo have al
lowed tho Iottors themsolvos to tell tho story
ofoffenstvo partisanship, but thoro Is ami
has boon for ton years plenty ot other ovi
denco ot Richardson's activo subsorvlonco
to tho managers of local politics. Richard
son's chief, Mr. Sumner I. Kimdald, is also
a Maino man. Is It posslblo to lmaglno that
fur ten years ho has boon blind to tho per
formances ot his subordinate? It so, ho
must bo incompetent indeod.
This is the branch of tho Government ser
vlco which the Evening Post holds up to ad
miration as a model of businesslike, non
partisan administration. Wo hold, on tho
contrary, that tho retention for ton years ot
a man Inspired by such a spirit as is manifest
In theso Iottors, Is a fact which wolghs a thou
sand times more than all of Mr. Kimball's
professions. Wo also hold that true civil
orvlco reform consists lu turning out such
Republicans, when tboy are found in office,
and putting good Democrata in their places.
.Mr. New, the II. C, and Col. Frank
Tho Ilebeludlnous Crank regrets that Jur
FEK30N Davis was not hanged twonty-ono

that it is not yot too late to bang hlra. With

Col. Bonn visited Atlanta In tho pursuit of
his profession of newspaper reporter. Stand
ing amid tho mon against whom he fought
a quarter of a century ago. he, too, was car

the occasion. We learn from the Atlanta
ObnafifufiVm that OoJ. Bunn "appeared in

his hat. Ho shouted hlmsolf hoarse, and
wept with tho veterans."
Would tho non. John 0. Nkw havo worn a

Would tho nobotudlnous Crank havo mingled

than Mr. New or tho Hobotudlnous Crank.
The Hnppr Man.
A man who is very cnlhuslastlo In his
work, and desirous abovo all things to bring
It to tho hlghost perfection, lately exclaimed,
when tho strlko for eight hours was men
"Eight hours! Good heavens I As forme,
I want to strlko against nature for slxtcon
hours for twenty-four hours."
Ho robolled, not becauso tho day's work
was so long, but becauso nature oompollcd
him to make It so short. Ho begrudged tho
tlmo lost from his labor.
Now, was not that a happy and a fortunato
man ? Who is mora onvlablo than ho who
finds his greatest pleasure in his work ? And
can anybody bo called happy who Is not so

A Motto Tor Future Use.
"Thoy discharged our brothor and we
struck," said Martin Irons aftor tho groat
uprising In tho Southwost, and a sad and bit
tor lot of men are tho old employees of tho
Missouri Paclflo Railroad In consequence.
After soolng tho total failure of tholr effort,
most of them are to-day without employ
ment. Thoy must soo that Mr. Powserly
and othors who disapproved of tho strike and
sought to end It six weeks ago, woro right.
"Stick to Powderly," said The Sun; and
how much better It would have beon If that
advice had been hooded.
But oven after Powderly has gono, thoro
will still bo an historical figure whoso words
should bo considered by ovorybody, especially
strikers. " Bo sure you'ro right, then go
ahead," said Davy Crockett; and tho disas
trous feature of tho recent strike on tho
Missouri Paclflo was tho fact that Martin
Irons went ahead first.
From a nearly Inexhaustible storehouse of
hallucinations, a pago of the Hoston Herald,
wo extract this very practical and Incontestable
"It Is the duty ot the Administration to be sound."
It is. It is. But alas 1 how shall it be done?
In looking back ovor tho history of tho
Missouri Paclflo strike, it ocours to us that Mr.
Hone would have boen Just as well off to-day
if he bad had tbo politoness to offer chairs to
the gentlemen of the Labor Cause when they
called on him In his oQlae.
Tho case of Capt. Alfred Heddero, for
merly ot tho Flfteonth Infantry, for whose re
lief a bill has been favorably reported by the
House Military Commlttoo. Is a straneo ono.
He wai found by a court martial guilty of fraud
and of conduct unbecoming an officer and a
gentleman, and was sontonced to be cashiered
and condned in the penitentiary. Tho Impris
onment was romltteJ, but ho was turned out ot
the army In discrace. Now tho House commit
tee discovers, on looking Into the case, this
ourlous state ot things:
"We find Ave of the prominent witne aai'e on the oroae

thereafter, cro court mnrllalled en I rtLmtsacd the ser

'Xho committee further find that Cant nr.D
DEnohns "an excellent reputation in prlvato
life, and his record as a soldier Is of tho first
order." Wlmtovor the facts may be as to his
aliened offoncei, It Is a startling commentary
on military judicial proceedings that In this
one caso five officers cava testimony who were
thomsolvos aftorward dismissed by aontonco of
court martial. Tho committee declare not only
that "the court was controlled bysnmetlilne
other than evidence." but that Capt. IIedbkiso
was dismissed "In open violation of law," and
without the confirmation of tho Prosldent,
Mr. Gladrtone's big speech on home rulo
contained 2a.0(S) words. Had lie beau paid by the line he
would have received a handsome aum. Etuttm Artrut.
The fact that Bneland feols thnt she has got
to pay for it and doesn't want to Is what makes
the presont trouble In British politics.
Facetious gontlcmon who arauso them
selves by making the soemlngly harmless re
mark, " Rats," do not fare well at presont. The
police knoek them out or take them In, and
their Innocent merriment Is not appreciated.
Ourostoemed contemporary, tho Ecentno Post.
ought to look through the Penal Code, which
constitutes his library, and find tho sootlon
which makes this cry of "Rats" ounisbablo
with fine and imprisonment. Why is It, any
way, that to call a man "Rat" Is dangerous to
the publlo peace ? Any man might coll any
follow man a buttcrburnp or a unlearn, and
never bring down tho' locust of the law upon

The confidential circular calling for n con

upon the condition of affairs that demanded
such n conference.
" There is no wnrfnro to bo wasted," said Mr.
McGuIro; " tho trados unions want no strife.
We want the unions and the Knltjhts of Labor

Erie Yard Master W. A. Halsoyandhls wife
wero in the procession, driving In a light car
rinse. Dalsey saw the runaway Smith team
bearing down upon him. Thoro was not room
for him to turn aside and let It pass, so he
?ulokly pulled his horse out of the road, and
orcod it to climb a steep bank. There was not
room on the bank between the fence and a tele
graph polo for the carrtaso to pass, and It was
upset, and the horse, carriage, drlvor. and all

Ha la Given Opportunity to Explain Certnln
Caartona liad Tranaaellaite.
Washington, May 4. Tho Senate Commit
tee on Finance this morning took up the case
of Gen. Itosecrans, against whom charges have
been made, and directed that tho Chairman ot
tho committee address a letter to him calling
his nttentlon to the nature ot tho charges, and
offorlng him an opportunity to mnko a reply.
A lottor was addressed to the Goncral by Mr.
Morrill and forwarded to him later In the day.
Tho charges that have been made against Gon.
Itosecrans grow out of a oaso that was tried In
tho October term of the United States Su
preme Court In 1884, upon appeal from tho
Supremo Court of tho Btate of California. Gon.
Itosecrans was not a party to tho suit, but It
grew out ot transactions in whloh he was In
volved. A suit wns brought by Mr. J. O'Connor
of California against George W. Fraabnerand
others tor possession of certain property In
the State of California. This property is a
part nf lands that were granted to tho
Stnto of California by the United Stntns.
and was sold by the Stale In 1874
to ono Ttobort Thomron, from whom
O'Connor, the plaintiff In the caso, derived his
tltlo. When O Connor came to take the land
ho found it In tho possession ot George W.
Frnshnerand others, against whom ho brought
his suit of ejectment. Thn evidence produced
In tbo trial showed that Frasbner nnd others
hnd obtained a title to the same property sov
ornl years before from Gnn. Itosecrans. The
decision of the Supreme Court wns In fnvor of
O'Connor, on the ground thnt, although Fresh
nor mid others held an earlier title, it wns
fraudulent, and wns procured In a fraud
ulent manner by Gen. Jtosoernns. Tho
decision ri-cltes that on May 0, 1808. Gen. Itose
crans. for his own honollt. procured a numbor
ot men to enter those lauds under the Pre
emption laws of tho United States, Kacn entry
mado was convoyed to him, and somo of tho
dnnds woro exoented, all of tho expensos being
paid by Itosecrans, Tho court ilncldod
thnt nil of these entries were fraudulent,
and were fraudulently obtained by Itose
crans by thn payment of money in
vlo'atlon of the net of April 27, 18C3.
The men who mado tho entry nnd tho deeds
testified that tlmy woro not Informed by Itoso
ontnaof the contents ot the papers thoy had
signed, and did not road them before they at
tached tholr signatures. After Gon. Itosecrans
obtained possession of thoso lands, he disposed
oi thorn to Frnshner nnd othcis, nualnst whom
O'Connor wns compelled to bring a stilt of
ejectment. This suit, m stated, was decided in
favor of O'Connor by tho Supreme Court ot
California, and afllnnod by the Supremo Court
of the United States.

It is said hore that thn bondholders nnd others

understanding betwoen Mrs. Delacrotnx and
the trustees of the university by whlob tbo will

Prof. Darling's anatomical museum,
The most Interesting witness of tho day was
Mrs. Mary 8. Jordan, a seamstress at 129 West
Tenth street. She Is well advanced toward

A week ngo last Saturday Senator John J.
Cullen, ono of tho champions of tho pollco forco
at Albany, was going homo from tho City nail,
and In his capacity as frlondot tho working
man he got on to a Fourth avenue car, although
a Third avenue car would have takon him
nearer to hla house at 219 East Thirty-ninth
street. Whore the tracks mix up In front of
tho Brooklyn Bridge Sonator Cullen's Fourth

and there was tho usual hubbub. A lot of tho
Btriknra or tholr sympathizers cllmbod upon
the Fourth avenuo car In search of a better
place from which to hoot at the Third avenuo
driver, benntor Cullen mnde some Informal
remarks to them, telling them that their causo
wns hist and that he was with them.
In the midst of tho Senator's remarks he was
rudoly Interrupted by a blow from a police
man's club on the back ot bis heud. This was
followed by another blow, which laid open tho

When he got away and got homo he was a
pretty well usod up man. 11 ut he was able to

little nxperiunco, and Is there now.
The Senator's wife declared last night that
she was highly disgusted with the polio, for
whom her husband had done so much at Al
bany, and thought them altogether too gener

said, knew pretty well who It was that had
clubbed him, but she did not know whether he
would seek for revenge or not. She had a

ZVeave ST Mejnor Dealere I.lahla ta Arraer,
Tho old Exclso Dopartraont was besiege!
yesterday by a largo crowd of saloon keepers
who had not road the newspapers, and sup
'posed that licenses obtained there would pre-
toet thom In tho salo of liquor. They were only
allowed to entor one by one lest a new Excise
Commissioner should smuggle himself la.
Each who ontorod was warnod that he needn't
pay his money thoro nnloss he wanted to. but
was assured that that was tho proper place ta
pay It, and that tho Chambers stroot eoncorn
wan n. g.
Mosrs. naughton and Morris wore on hand
early, and under tholr supervision licenses
wero mado out as fast as possible to all who
askod for them. Elghty-soven Itoenses wero
Issuod and nearly 17,000 was received for them.
First class licenses, prlos $250 each, woro
granted to tho Gllsoy House nnd to I. W,
Parker, Broadway, near Thirty-fourth streot.
Mr, Mltcboll did not appoar. and in his stead
camo a letter declining to not as Commissioner,
or to obstruct the operations of the new Board,
ponding a settlement In tho courts. His col
leagues therefore Issuod a manifesto, giving
tholr views of the law, and saying:
No other body in tha oonntr has any right whatever
to claim to he the Itxclse Board, and any cullen who oh.
tains a license from any nthsr body le neither acting at
accord with common aenaa or prudent legal advloa.
The County Demooratle inspectors and
clerks of tho old department and some of tho 4
othors followod the example of Mr. Mitchell In
giving up their clnoea, and reported for dutif
at the new department. 32 Chambers street.
Hero sixty persona applied for licenses. He.
celpta were glvon. by way of protection, to sueii
aa raid In money, and Chlof Clerk Dave
White told all the applicants to come again to
day, whon application blanks would be ready.
Several hotel mon applied for licenses hers,
and their applications went .before the now
Commissioner; for consideration. Clerk Whit
happened to have a lot of hotel license blanket
In his possession. Twenty of tho, thlrtr-thrna
lnspeotors of tbo old Board walked in at t
n'olook. Stenographer Jerome Brady and
Record Clerk Louis Alklo were the only other
employees of the old Board who obeyed tho
notice. The Commissioners said that the em
ployees who remained at the headquarters ot
tho old Board might oonslder themselves dls
oharged. The new CommlBMoners will not bo
gin suit to oust the old Board.
The now Board will lssuo licenses to all per
sons who had paid license foe to tho old Board,
or whose applications had been approved up to
and Including May 1. . . .
Soveral of the notnrlos who earned fees by
drafting applications for licenses undor the
old Board, and whom. It is alleged, the old
Board practically compolled applicants to era
ploy, applied to tba new Board for authority to
oontlnue tbo business. Tho Board replied that
It had no power to give anybody exelustve aa I
tborlty to prepnre applications. ... f
"The police will have to test the legal qnet i
tlon for themselves," Lawyer Dayton naid, by
arresting men who do business under lleenses -it
grnnted by the old Board." . '-v
Whichever sldo comes out ahead, the other
sldo will be extremely likely to sue the olty far
