Political "Wiseacres Say That tlio

TJpou the Propriety of Ituniiing for
a Third Term.
Astute politicians in Washington "iwink
tbe other eje" at Hanker Benedict's an
nounccmeat that his rrtend, Mr. Cleveland,
would never, neer consent to accept a
nomination for a third term, and it is re
ceived cerj where with more or less in
credulity. Mr. Benedict's close relations with Mr.
Cleveland make any statement from him re
garding Mr.Cletcljnd slutcntionsas-ilmost
It is not likely that Mr. Benedict would
have made the announcement which be has
without some Inspiration from the Presi
dent. It is only fair to believe to say that Mr.
Benedict believes that he is oicing Mr.
Cleveland's sentlme-nts In withdrawing ills
name from any further connection n ith tbe

still Inclined to the opinion that Mr. Cleve
land has resorted to this method to sound
public sentiment on the question of a third
There is nothing, they say. In Mr. Bene
dict's declaration which will present Mr.
Cle eland taking the nomination next year,
proided he can get It.
It is Just possible that Friend Benedict
has been made tbe Innocent lctlm of Mr.
Cleveland. Mr. Benedict is a cry devout
worshiper at the. Cle ciand sbrine, and ho
Is disposed to accept any hint or suggestion
from that source without question.
TIE'S NOT A FKEE AGENT.
Ordinarily a keen finaucicraud good judge
of human nature, Mr. Benedict, on the sub
ject of Grovcr Cleveland, is not entirely re
sponsible or n free agent.
According to his com let ion, Mr. Cleve
land can do no wrong. If the President
should decide to become a candidate for re
nomination next jear, Mr. Benedict would
probabl ha e announced that fact with as
much unction and personal approal as he
gae to the statemeut that Mr. Cleveland
had decided not to be a candidate for a
"Mr. Cleveland," said one of his friends
last night, "is just as much of a candidate
as ever he-uas. I shall believe that he
does not aspire for a third term when he
conies oJt and sa.- so over bis own signa
ture and tlie Democratic convention has
no ninated some other man.
"Mr. Clcvciand is a candidate, provided
there is any chance of his securing the
nomination. The comments of the news
papers on the third-term idea, however,
have bi-en so decided!) unfavorable .is to
make Mr. Cleveland hesitate. He has,
therefore, adopted a new lack. Mr. Bene
dict was given the hint to say that Mr.
Cleveland would not lie a candidate and
cojld not accept the nomination if it MiouM
be tendered to him.
"Up lo date tin re has been no official
or aul' orlted de-clarallon upon tin-, sub
ject. Naturally the announcement will
cause more or les comment. The tenor of
this comment will go a large way toward
deciding Mr. Cleveland's co Jrse. If the bulk
of it is uuravorable Mr. Cleveland will In
due lime write a letter expressing his ab
horrence of tlie third term Idea and de
claring in the most emphatic terms that lie
has never for a moment senou-ly contem
plated becoming a candiate for a third
"On the other hand. If the people, through
the newspapers, evince an) disposition to
Indorse a third term. Mr. Benedict n ill be
chlded for his 'indiscretion,' and the Presi
dent will place hlnisi If In the hands of his
friends. In other wonls, Mr. Cleveland
would prefer to be defeated at tlie polls,
rather than in the national convention of
THINKING ABOUT niS CIIANCES.
Another prominent Democrat said.
"President Cleveland Is thinking very
much more about his chances for re-election
as Chief Executlveof the Nation than he is
about a trip around the world."
Tills gentleman doe's not believe that the
rumor circulated that President Cleveland
Intends to make a tour of the world, has any
foundation in fact, but he Is of the opinion
that Mr. Ciev eland again has nn ambition to
succeed himself In the White House.
The present Chief Executive, according to
this gentleman. Is of the opinion tbat the
nomination will be of fcred lilm unanimously
when the next Democratic national con
volition assembles, and that further than
this, Mr. Cleveland Is of the opinion that if
he again makes the race, be will be success
There are very few Mircwd Democratic
politicians In Washington, hotvever, who
believe that Mr. Cleveland will have smooth
sailing if he endeavors to capture a fourth
nomination next year, nor do they believe.
If !' Mioulil be lucky enough to be nomi
nated, that he could lie elected at the polls.
Mr. Clevclind's Cabinet associates, how
ever, are nearly oil in favor of their chief
for a third term, and it Is stated on what
se-ems to lie good authority that all of
the-ni are using every possible effort in
the management of the department over
whiehthey preside to build up a Cleve
land sentiment throughout their section
of the country. They may or may not
fcuceeed. Until they discover, however.
Just what the prevailing sentiment is, it
Is not like-ly that Mr. Cleveland will com
mit himself regarding this matter.
SHOW OF WINNING.
It Is said that Mr. Cleveland is of tbe
opinion that the Democratic party under
his leadership In 180G will stand an ex
cellent show of winning at the polls. He Is
said to hold to the belief that the He
publicans will make some serious blunders
during the first session or the Fifty-fourth
Congress, and any mistakes they may
make will, of course, be detrimental to
them in the next campaign and enhance
the possibility of the success of the Dem

simply that he had no opinion to give.

Mr. Stevenson was asked.

His Platform the Repeal of the

Favor the J 111 Indian's Candidacy. .
Within the past few days Senator Mills
has been frequently quoted as favoring
the selection of William R. Morrison as
the Presidential candldite of the Dem
ocratic party, a feature of the platform
being the repeal of the -civ 11 service law.
There are many politlelans among the
Democrats here who bellev e that by square
ly presenting this Issue to the people
for their approval or disapproval the
party would thereby render the public
a decided service, without regard to suc
cess or defeat.
The progress of civil service reform has
been steadily forward since the day tho
original act, framed and urged by the
late Senator rendletou of Ohio, went Into
UDdi r the administrations of Cleveland
and that of Harrison, the law was ex
tended from time lo time, and It now era
braces thousands of public servants,
where at the beginning it only protected
This extension has encountered stubborn
opposition in both parties, but it lias never
been cncckeci, anti unless puuue: ujiuiiuu,
as Intirpretcd for years by the legis
lative and executive departments it the
Government, yields to some retroactive
spelL the reform will maintain Its on
ward progress until It shall Include all
Federal officials, save those upon whonl
tbe administration must rely to carry out
CIVIL SERVICE REFORMER.
President Cleveland began his career
as chief ex-cutlve as an avowed civil
service reformer. During his first term
he honestly adhered to the principle, and
sought to extend tbe privilege.
In 1888, when he was up again before
tbe people for re-election, tens of thou
sands of Democrats fought him at tlie polls
because of his reform record. In New York
organizations or Democrats openly op
posed him, saying they had rather have
a Republican President than a "Mug
wump," who gave the oiriccs to the foes
of his party.
The opposition to C'evcland on this ac
count contributed more to his defeat than
'an) other cause. In 1SD2 Republics-is an
tagonized President Harrison because of
dissatisfaction arising from his disposi
tion of tl e patronage and be was defeated.
President. Cleveland, during his present
term, has extended the classified service
until It embraces even minor positions,
such as messengers.
With regard to the civil service law and
its effects. It is opparcnt.that the opposi
tion Is strong enough to punish the sin
cere reformers at the polls. This hostil
ity could be allayed by making the law
embrace all Federal officials and em
ployes, except such ns ore required to be
confirmed by the Senate. That would
dislodge tlie office-seeker from his dls
gruntlement. With all applicants placed upon the same
.level, and the success or failure In pro
curing place- depending- upon me anility or
the applicant to demonstrate bis or her
fitness, there would De no room ror grum
bling. OPPOSITION TO ACTION.
But this stage of civil service reform
will not bo attained without a struggle.
The cry that suca a sweeping application
of tho law Tvould establish an office-holding
class In the country would rally tha
opposition to determined action.
But there does not seem to be'gronnd for
any apprehension that the reform already
accomplished, could be overthrown. For
Instance, the practice of permitting officials
having a prescribed period of service to
fill out their teflns, even though the per
sonnel and politics of the administration
may be changed meanwhile, is now recog
nized as jusl by the rankest partisans.
There Is no probability of any contest
in the coming session of Congress over the
maintenance of .the civil service law, but
It may he made an issue In the national con
test next year.
Chief Clerk Logan Carlisle, of the Treas
ury, whose experience In the matter of mak
ing appointments to both tbe classified and
unclassified service, enables him to speak
with authority, predicts, that, the civil
service law -will be extended to Include 'all
except the higher officials selected by-the
President and those who must bold confidential-relations
with executive offjctals,
acd Mr. Carlisle unhesitatingly declare
t '74, -
g,iQSr ' j" ' " - fk
that such an extension would b a public
benefit. His idea Is that' the existing sys
tem, being a mixture of the t no methods
of filling appointments, Is defective.

others, Is n disorderly conduct, according to
a ruling of Judge Kimball, made in the

respectable paentageand of good reputation
he wlllnot be conv icted, but simply warned.
William Pearson, the son of a prbmincnt
attorney, was arrested yesterday evening
by Policemen Kelly and Mason on a charge
of disorderly conduct. The officers testi
fied that they heard the defendant and bis
friends whoop, but the young man irrotestod
that they were only sneezing.
Young Pearson was defended by his
father, and Mr.Pugh.asusual, did theprose

the officers ought to exercise more discre
tion and simply warn young offenders.
The defendant was released.
