.Margaret bad a peculiar and
invincible dislike toward Mr. Wain

placid, good enough * women who
would live peaceably with either a
saint or a demon.
Margaret would have gone, how
ever, almost anywhere to have seen or

His ill-favored face lighted at tin

with a sinking heart.
Then Gomez told her, in broken

that he had shot Crnnhouruc, thai ho

And Margaret sped away again
Tlio way up had becu sleep and
rocky; she knew of a shorter though
nioio dangerous path through the
other side of the wild c'inyon.
Shu had heard the clock at Wain
wright's sinke Ibr half-past seven, as
she left, and .-lie was anxious to heat
"The- brook must be low enough to
w:ule through," she thought, "ami it
will save time."
She felt strangely, and longed to
gel. home; she was too healthy to think
of dying, but as she hurried along the
dangerous path, where a loose rock or
a misstep would have been fatal, she
could not but think how merciful
(??d would be if she could fall, and
never open her eyes again.
She had reached the brook, taken
oil' her shoes ami stockings, and was
just ready to wade in, when she heard
a rumbling underneath her feet, as if
a regiment of cavalry were tramping
"FartIn[iiak 2 !'' she tho.ight; she
had fell ninny of them, and was tibi
alarmed; she was, besides, in a da/.ed,
wretched condition when scarcely
any thing Would have alarmed her.
She started into the brook, although
she felt theground rocking beneath
her feet, ami the great bow biers which
'ay loosely on the sides of the steep
hills began to rc'l und jump with a
dread fid noise; any one less unhappy
would have reali/.cd that she could
scarcely have keen in a more danger
ous place. ''There!'' she. thought,
pausing halfway through the water
to look up around her, "it's over. I
hope Mrs. .Mill is with poor mother."
But it was not over; it was but lk'*
breathingsji.il of a couple ol seconds,
when the real earthquake commenced.
Margaret .stood still, her hare feet
slipping on the mossy stones. The
strange noises, the great rocks tumb
ling about her, the swaying trees,
bewildered ami confused her; she
realized her danger, but dared u/tther
a ivaiico nor retreat;
She though; not of heaven at that
aw ful moment; neither of the veng

the very rcnicmhcrnuce of her sib ami
the knowledge thai she must answer
for it seemed to have passed from her.
"My God, my God." she cried,
"have mercy upon hi in .' Father, lit
not your mercy fail him."
A gr at rock above her head split
and fell with a lerribh crash; the
earthquake lasted but forty second."?,
but. to Margaret it seemed hours;
great cracks were opened in the earth;
springs bubbled up in the bed of the
creek, and tin? water rose rapidly;
another great bowlder from the el ill'

saw it come with a dazed terror; then

The Candidates and the Civil
[ I'rdin riarper's Weekly, Aug. 2i>.'|
Many .^newspapers have published
the passage of Gov'; Hayes's letter
thai, trcajs of the reform of the civil
service side by side with that of Mr.
TiIdea's. It is the best way of show
ing the real position (?I' each candi
date, (lev. Hayes speaks in the lone
of clear perception anil profound con
vie'ion, like a man of courage ex
pecting quietly to luce the contest
which his declaration invokes; Goyi
Tilden, in the vague and evasive lone
of oho who knows thai the public
opinion, which he wishes to propitiate,
demands the reform, while the party
upon which he must chiefly rely for
election despises and flouts it. There
is, moreover, an essential and radical
difference; Gov. Hayes believes sin
cerely anil has long believed in civil
service reform. His views are not
assumed for the purposes of this can
vass. In his inaugural address as
governor of Ohio, in duly, lcwO, ( leu.
Hayes said, alluding to partisan
patronage as the basis of the civil

ed with some di (lieu I ties, lint in re
vising Our Slate Constitution, if this
object is kept constantly in view,
there is little reason to doubt that it
can lie 'Success idly aecOnijilished.''
Again, in 1872, in a public speech as
a candidate lor Congress, with no
more expectation of a nomination for
the presidency than the reader of
these line.-, (Sen. Hayes, after a vigor
ous description of the evils of the pre
sent practice, said :?
"Th ; system is a bad one. It des
troys the independence of the. separ
ate departments of the government,
and it degrades the civil service. It
ought to be abolished * * * We ought
to have a re form of the system of
appointments to the civil set vice,
thorough, radical, and complete."
These are the words of a practical and
experienced public man, who has sin
cere convictions and purposes upon
the subject. Gov. Tilden, so far as
has ever appeared, has no opinions or
convictions upon it whatever' except
thtit. public ollicers should not be
thieves and knaves. He has grown
old in the school of "the spoils." He
'has never, to our knowledge, *uid a
word in favor of a reform of the spoils
system, or of a non-partisan service,
' which is the substance of reform, and
in his ollicinl acts he has couformed
j strictly to the practice which it is the
object of it thorough reform to de
stroy. He would undoubtedly have
honest men in office, but that is not a
reform of the civil service system.
In bis letter of acceptance .Gov.
Tilden says that there are two evils in
out* civil service : one is the prcval |
cut idea that it exists, not for the
benefit of the people, but for that of
lite piliccdtOidorsj and the other, the
or^ani/.ation of the office-h-Vdhig e'ass
into a band of political mercenaries.
'I he first step in reform ho states to bo
the elevation of the standard of elec
tion j and the second a conscientious
exercise of the power of removal.
After these we may abolish unnecess
ary offices, and then proceed to the
careful organization of a belter system.
But no reform will be complete until
the President is disqualified for re
election. Gov. Tilden sneers at "self
imposed restrictions by candidates or
incumbents," meaning the declaration
of Gov. Hayes that ho should not be a
Candida to for re-election. The diflcr
i encc between them upon this point is
that G?v. Hayes is honorably engag
cd by his own word not to seek a re
duction, thereby disposing of all per
sonal motives to thwart reform, while
Gov. Tilden is not. He leaves open
his chance of a second term, and con
sequently all the personal induce
ments to perpetuate the present sys
tem. Jle merely docs what the great
corruptcr of the civil service, Andrew
Jackson, did; In each of his first
three messages to Congress, Jackson
urgently recommended, like Gov
Tilden, a constitutional limitation of
the presidency to one term. In his
fourth message Jackson omitted the
recommendation, for he had already
been re-elected for a second term,
having zealously prostituted the exe
cutive patronage to tha' end during
all his first term.
The two evils which Gov. Tilden
mentions as infesting our civil service
arc merely symptoms directly due to
the prescht purely partisan system of
appointments. There can be no re
form without correcting this system,
and that Gov. Tilden docs not pro
pose to do! lie says that the (ir?t
step is the elevation of the standard
of selection; that is to say, only the
honest, and competent must be ap
pointed. Is there anybody who says
anything else? Does anybody de
mand the selection of the dishonest
and incompetent ? Every rogue now
in office bus been appointed by those
who insist, with Gov. Tilden, that
only the honest and competent shall
be selected. The difficulty is in the
very position that Gov. Tilden
assumes, namely, the appointment of
the incompetent and unfaithful by
those who insist, that only the honest
ami lit shall be selected. The vital
question of reform is not whether, but
how, the standard shall be elevated;
and upon that p.?int Gov. Ti/den has
nothing to say. His second step is
faithful exercise of the authority to
remove for misconduct. That is, of
course, desirable, but-it is something
that depends entirely upon the per
sonal character of the appointing
pMieer, and it is a power which, as
Gov. Ti Men's great party loader,
Andrew Jacks >n, showed, is liable to
the most monstrous abuse. Indeed,
it has been proved by experience to
be a power too liable to abuse to be
tolerated in any system which docs
not guard most carefully against its
illicit exercise. There are many
intelligent and sincere friends of re
form who think that the most import
ant step of all is the strict regulation
oi the arbitrary power which Gov.
Tilden would leave untouched, with
a prayerful hope that it would be pro
I pcrly exercised.
i Gov. Tildeu's treatment of this
I subject by its evasions and omissions
J shows conclusively, to our appreheu
I sion, that he is not himself in favor
I id a real reform of the system, arid
! that lie is perfectly aware that he
would be dropped by his party if ho
I declared for it. There is nothing iu
I what he says to prevent, in case of his
election, as clean a partisan sweep of
the offices as lluft which Jackson
made and which his party will de
mand. All that he says is, in sub
stance, that there ought to be good
men in the high offices, and that they
ought to appoint good men in the
lower, and remove bad men. The
Democratic clerk of Mr. Morrisou's
who named Iiis child for (ho atsassin
of Mr. Lincoln, and the Democratic
door-keeper of the House, Fit/.bugh,
would cordially agree that (iov.
Tilden treats the subject ot civil ser
vice reform like a statesman of the
sound Jacksbnian school; but every
man who has seriously studied the
subject will see at once that he has
dexterously trilled with one of the
gravest questions of tho time. And
again the sincere words of Gov.
Hayes upon tho subject ring out iu
manly ami inspiring contrast. Gov.
Hayes knows that, among his sup
porters there is a powerful and swift
ly increasing body that demands re
form upon the principles he proclaims.
Gov. Tilden knows no such body
among his supporters, and he there
fore carefully announces no principles
whatever, lie knows, as every in
telligcnt mau in, the country knows,
thai with his partisans "reform of tho
civil service" means turning out Re
publicans and turning in Dumocrats;
and that is the "administrative re
form" to which a Tilden admiimtra
tion would introduce us.
The Battles with the Sioux.
The loss of life in the two battles
with the Sioux, great as it has been,
is not by any means the greatest wo
may have to count. The e?ect upon
tho Indians themselves is far moro
dangerous; not only ojx tho Sioux
nation elated with their victories, but
on all the tvibes in the vicinity of tho
Held of operations. Already we aro
told that the Indians at the Bcrthohl
agency are becoming restive, Wo
have seen the Crows leave General
Crook because the fight with their
hereditary enemies was not a viotary.
When they learn, as they soou will,
of the destruction of Custcr, the de
feat of Reno and the retreat of Terry
and Gibbons to tho Yellowstono,oven
they may doubt whether success, may
not lie in a war on the pale faces
rather than upon their red cnonues.
The Crows arc just as savage as tho
Sioux; the Mandans and Gros Nen
trcs have very bad records, and if
they are led to believe that tho power
of the white man is on the wane, tho
frontier settlements arc likely to suf
fer in a degree we can only fanoy
now by multiplying by hundreds tho
stories of raping, torture and murder
which have come to us from time to
timo from the sparsely sottled lands
of the far West. An alarming point
in connection with the recent battles
is the reported appearance of several
white desperadoes directing tho ab?
tacks of the Sioux. Outlaws and
i criminals of the worst stamp, which
even the border towns, with their
large numbers of despcrato charac
ters, have been too hot to hold, thoy
arc just in the position to do most
damage, not merely from their super
ior knowledge of the tactics of tho
soldiers, but from tho effect their
crying down of the strength of tho
whites would have on Indians wavor
ing between reservation beef and
blankets and the prospect of a scalp
