YI2 OliUIJN TIME.
Tho Olllcc-Scckcr Dates llnck
From tho Philadelphia Inquirer.
Tho scramble or office that Is now
going on has caused Robert Lincoln
O'Brien, a, BoHton newspaper man,
who Is fond of "delving deep Into
musty lore," to recall tho days of Pres
ident Adams, the first of our chief
magistrates to acquire office as a party
leader and on party Issues, Mr.
O'Brien Jlnds that Philadelphia seems
then, ns now, to have been something
of a political storm centre, and to have
contained a good! many cltlzesn
anxious to servo their country for a
reasonable consideration, Fredrick
A. Muhlenberg wanted to be treasurer
of the mint, and took pains to explain
to tho president that "a series of mis
fortunes to a son-in-law of mine oc
casioned by french enptures have af
fected me very materally, and being nt
present out of public employment, I
have both leisure nnd Inclination to
attend to tho duties of this or any
other office you may think proper to
honor me with, whilst at the same time
It would afford me some aid In a situa
tion I have never been accustomed to."
Apparently, office was office with Mr.
Muhlenberg, whatever Its title, for
after waiting some month ho changed
his coursu and became a applicant for
the Philadelphia collectorshlp, but was
willing to accept, either tho naval of
ficer's or purveyor's position. Near
ly three years later, having failed In
all his applications, he appealed to
President Jefferson In like manner,
attributing his ill-success with Adams
U the hostility of Oliver Wolcott.
Another Philadelphia politician con
spicuous at that day was the clever
but erratic commissioner of revenue,
Tench Coxe. He was turned out of of
fice during President Adams' term on
charges of political .treachery to tho
administration. He came back to Jef
ferson with a plea that "the world
sees mo yet unprovided for yet un
restored my old office held by him
that extruded me the best branch
of It given to another." He wanted
that place or "something equally ns
good," as our modern politician would
put It. He scorned anything of a
dignity unworthy of a man of his
especial merit. "The trivial appoint
ment of a commissioner of Bank
ruptcy." he wiote, "which Judge P.
will have the power to render fruit
less, will neither maintain my large
family, repair my substantial losses
nor restore me to public honor and
confidence. Tho office can not produce
$1200 per annum, nnd Is a very uncon
fortable nnd Inconvenient one,"
