There seems to be some difference In
opinions about the time that the Post
master at Elyrla should retire. October
1st, 1885, he took bis sest under appoint
ment from President Cleveland, but the
Senate tailed to confirm him until the fifth
day of May, 1886; hll commission was
dated on the date of confirmation, to be

his time will not expire until May 5th,

years from date of appointment.

that is his privilege, and the sooner he can

will again olanl their feet on their native

Interest, a pilgrimage of knowledge. 1 fie

tionate cordiality when found within our
gates or over our fence line.
It is a pleasure to read the friendly
story of the movements of our envoys in
the Ohio papers. The Wellington Enter
prise closes its account with these kind
words: "Everything goes to show that a
friendly feeling exiBte here instead of en

Tuesday morning we boarded the
steamer Erio, and were soon across the
bay to tie famous Johnson Island of his
toric memory ,and 6f personal experience to
many of Georgia's soldiers. The island Is
about a halt mile wide and one mile long.
The old prison ground is now in culti
vation. Our objective point when we
landed was the confederate Cemetery
that silent, lonely and isolated city the
home of the "Rebel" dead, where two
hundred and thirty-eight lie slde-by-slde
beneath the shade of the
"Low green tents,
Whose curtains never outward swing."
As we walked the aisles between the
graves and noted the simple inscriptions
on the decaying boards Died, age 22, 24.
28, and as we meditated that there beneath
the sod lay the dust of some loving
mother's dear boy, the place became more
lonely and sad, ana impressed us all with
"what a wicked and cruel thing is war;
how it robs the country ot the flower of its
youth and writes its horrible records in
blood and tears." But our hearts were
cheered and our affections Inspired for the
kind people of Bandusky, when we were
told that on Memorial Day, and when they
were decorating the graves of their own
dead, the good ladles of Bandusky never
failed to cross the bay, the' three miles
wide, and place flowers on the grave of
those that were buried so far away from
home, and whose resting-places were de
prived ot the attention of kindred and
loved ones. We noted the following In
scriptions on two head-boards, which
represents a fair specimen of the wording
on the others:
J. L. Land,
C. 8. A.
Lieut 24th Geo. Inf.
Died Jan'y 11,1864,
Aged 28 yrs.

By the influence of one of the noble
citizens of Bandutky, Congress appropri
ated 12,500 a few years ago to Improve this
cemetery, but the money reverted back to
the treasury on account ol failure to get a
deed In fee simple. The failure to get a
deed was very much regretted by those
instrumental in getting the appropriation,
but they have hopes yet ol being able
some time to get it

BY J. G. CARLISLE.
One of th( most discouraging signs of
the times is the growing disposition
among certain classes of the people to rely
upon the government for assistance in the
prosecution of their private business. The
spirit ol independence and self-reliance
which informer times constituted the
chief characteristic of the American clti
izen, and made him enterprising and suc
cessful In business, as well as a safe cus
todlan ol political power, is rapidly dis
appearing, and In nearly every branch of
industry there is a persistent demand for
governmental aid In one form or another.
Bo general has this disposition already be
come that out-legislative bodies, state and
federal, are crowded at every session with
measures which have no other foundation
than a selfish purpose to promote the prl
vate interests of particular Individuals or
classes, and the business of real public
Importance Is too of led entirely neglected,
or carelessly disposed of In order to reach
the consideration of these private schemes,
The real purposes of these selfish schemes
are never confessed by their advocates.
There is always an ostentatious parade ol
patrlotlo sentiment and regard fqr the
general Welfare, and by this means the
majority of the people, who In every case
are compelled to bear the burdens im
posed, by class legislation, are frequently
seduced with the support of. measures
which would not be tolerated If thoroughly
This scramble for subsidies and special
legislation In all its various forms 1 de
moralizing and Injurious In all its aspects.
It not only destroys the independence of
the beneficiaries, but it prostitutes the
powers of the Government, debauchee
legislative bodies and corrupts the
elective franchise itself. This wss not in
tended to be a paternal government. It is
neither a charitable institution nor a Joint
stock corporation created lor the purpose
of transacting, or assisting in the trans
action, of ordinary business, but all the
powers it possesses are delegated to it for
public purposes only, and every attempt
to exercise them for the benefit of the
few at the expense of the many, however
It may be disguised, Is a palpable depart
ure from the spirit ot the constitution.
"Equal rights lor all and exclusive prlvl
leges for none," is not only good doctrine,
but a sound constitutional maxim which
ought never to be violated. - k
In the prosecution ot these schemes for
private gain, powerful combinations are
nearly always formed. The personal in
terests of large classes of voters are ap
pealed to, and the public man who dares
to oppose them is vigorously denounced
as an enemy to the industry or enterprise
proposed to be benefited, and,, if he per
sists, is threatened with defeat at the polls.
And too often this threat Is actually exe
cuted. By these means, or others still
more reprehensible, the opposition Is gen
erally overcome sooner or later, and the
measure is passed. If an attempt is after
ward made to repair the wrong thus done,
to the great body of the people, It is suc
cessfully resisted upon the grounds that the
'faith of the government has been pledged,
and that large interests have grown up
under the law, which would be ruined by a
withdrawal of.lhe gratuity. The legislature
Is at no time permitted to consider such a
measure on its real merits. The psssage is
secured by coercion and false pretenses,
and its reiieal is prevented by arguments
which have no relation to its original ne
cessity or propriety. The whole process
Is deceptive and dishonest, and no
legislative body can be long subjected to
the Influences which usually prevail in
such cases without provoking at least a
suspicion of corruption and want of fidelity
to the interests of the people.
