thla been predloted at the time of Lee's
surrender, It would have been regarded
aa tbe prophecy of a lunatic.
The 'administration of the Pension
Hureau soon exhibited greater strictness
lu tbe conditions required to establish a
pensionable disability, and tbe belief
grew throughout the North that tuls
was due to a feeling of hostility toward
Union soldiers. Due Instance, especial
ly, provoked much hostile comment.
Daring tbe war, Wm. Hedgspeth, of
tbe 42J Indlaua Volunteers, was taken
prisoner. After a confinement of live
mouths In tbe prisou pen at Audersou
vllle, be enlisted In ttis Coufederatx
army, with tbe intention, whloh be made
kuowu to some of bis fellow prisoner,
of escaping iutotbe Union lines as soon
aa possible. He succeeded iu this, re
joined bis regiment, served out bla term
of enlistment, and was honorably dis
charged. About the time of Cleveland's
election, be applied for n pension for a
disability contracted iu tbe Uulou ser
vioe, and made full proof of the requisite
facts. But under the new administra
tion of tbe pension offloe be was con
fronted with a clause of tbe law forbid
ding a pension to any persou"wbo in
any manner voluntarily engaged in, aid
ed, or abetted, the late rebellion against
tbe authority of the United States." Tbe
olaiiuHnt contended, however, that bis
enlistment In the Confederate army was
only a method of escaping from ImprU
oninent and rejoining bla command, and
therefore could not be regarded as vol
untary, within the meaning, spirit and
reasonable interpretation of the law.
The question made a deadlook among
officials of tbe Pension Bureau, in which
opinions on both sides were given. Be
lug Anally referred to Secretary Lamar,
be beld to the strict letter of tbe law
and decided against the claim. Tbe
largely preponderant opinion among tbe
people, respecting tbie deolalou, was
that tbs pension waa refused by tbe ex
Confederate Secretary, not because tbe
elalnlKEt fnvtT entered the Confederate
servioe, but as h punlsbmentCr having

tbe Mayor of St. Louis, that tbe veter

the veto was savagely denounced by the
interests that suffered by It, the best ele

portion of tbe veterans, gave It a cjrdlal
Indorsement. Even Matthew Stanley
Quay, who had Just been eleeted U. S.
Senator but had not yet taken his
seat, aud who, during the war, bad been
ooiouel of the 134:h Pa. Vols., expressed
Ills hearty approval of it. While the bill

Mr. Cleveland, while Governor of New
York, was a strong advooate ot "civil
service reform," by tbe adoption of tbe
"merit system of maklue.appolutiuuts,
and aided In tbe enactment of statutes
giving effect to tbe plan of competitive
examinations. Upon taking tbe Presl
deutlal chair, he endeavored to put tbe
same principles in operation in federal
appointments, and auuounced that, with
tbe exoeptiou of heads of departments,
forelgu mlnistern, aud other officials
chanted directly with tbe executiou of
tbe policy of tbe administration, there
would be uo removals without cause.
He soon found, Iiowever, that while a
Presldeut mlgut be better than his party.
It was far more difficult for him to be
stronger tbau his party. The Democ
racy, which bad suffered tbe buuger for
office for t went -four years, clamored to
be fed ; as oue western Cougresemau
bluutly expressed it, they were "squeal
ing for swill." No oue could questlou
the President's sincerity in demaudlng a
satisfactory standard of fitness lu offiolal
appointments ; .but the political condi
tions were suoh that he was uuablo to
resist tbe party pressure for a disregard
ot any standard beyond party demands.
After a period of backing aud UUluc, the
classification of causes reooguized "of

There were numerous grotesque exam

forth bis services during the cam
1th a list of his appointments,
declared, were so arranged
that he oould look In upon bis official
business once in eacb week ; and Hens
tor Vest made it wrathful demand on the
President to resolnd the order of suspen
sion. At a result, Mr. Beutou was relu
WHttflr; rtTuaVa wl't'u lt sAarpAgflfjTe by '
tue rreeiaent. Then Mr. Stone, encour
aged thereby, made application for re
instatement, showing that be had made
but two speeches, both lu tbe evening,
leaving bis offloe after the adjournment
of oourt, and returulng before It opened
iu the morning. The President, iu re
sponse, admitted that Mr. Stouo's courte
did not result In any neglect ol official
duty. Yet there was a marked difference
between tbe two oases ; Mr. Beutou's
speeches were mije In the cause of De
mocracy, while those of Mr. Htoue were
in opposition to it, aud, us Mr. Clevelaud
pointed out, were calculated to "offeud
aud irritate the friends of the adminis
tration." Therefore Mr. Stone's bus
peuslon was made a fiual dismissal, aud
he was succeeded by a Demoorat. An
other case showed that the rule lu rela
tion to "cause" was retroaotive, and with
uo statute of limitations to bar removals
under it. Id tbe summer of 1830, J. B.
Hill, the Republican Marshal of tbe
Eastern Dlstrlot of North Carolina, was
removed. Iu reply to a Senate resolu
tion of inquiry as to the oause. Attorney
General Garland stated that Mr. Hill hod
been a delegate to the Repablleau Na
tional Convention of 1884, more tbau two
years previously, aud five weeks before
Mr. Cleveland bad eveu been nominated
for the Preeideuoy ; aud for that act of
obtrusive and offensive partisanship aud
pernicious aotlvity, under a previous ad
ministration, bis official held was sum
marily whacked off.
The oases referred to were typical of
the geueral course pursued In tbe matter
of appointments during Mr. Cleveland's
aduilulstratlou. They show the diffi
culties oounected with the work of beglu
uiug olvll servioe reform, the obstacles
with whloh the Presldeut was confront
ed at every step, the prodigious pressure
to which he wassubjeoted by his party,
and tbe shifts to which he was driven iu
order to maintain working relations with
the great body of those ou whom he neces
sarily depeudeil for support, nud who
bitterly opposed auy Infraction of the
half jeutury old rule that "To the victors
belong the spoils." He struggled earnest
ly to establish the principles of civil
ervlce leform, but fouud himself con
fronted wuh coudltlous that crowded
theories lulu the gutter. So far as prac
ticable, lie gave ellect to those principles
by eularglug the classified lists of ap
polutiueuts lobe filled by eouipetltlvs ex
aiuluatloii. When his first term begau,
these numbered about 13,000, nud at the
cl jse of his second term the number bad
riseu to about 80,000.

tion, and Indorsed the Mills Dill ; tbe Repub

rison, of Indiana, and declare! strongly for
protection. Tbe result at the polls was the
election of Mr. Harrison.
In 1P92 Mr. Cleveland was again nominat

also lu making both Houses of Congress
Democratic. Soon after bis Inauguration..!
tbe l'f esiJent r-allei au extra session of
Congress for the purpose of repealing the
purchiee clause of the silver act ot 189U.
The Democratic Convention bal denounc
ed tbls provision acd demanded Its Iramedl
ate reM.aI. and Mr. Cleveland made tbe
mistake of supposing thtl n Democratic
Convention ever really meant anything
tbat It said except wni-n iW'laring for free
trade. Great, therefore, was bla astonish
ment, to Had tbat In neither House could a
Democratio majority be st-cured for tbe re
peal! and tbls was H Dally accomplished by

work on the tariff, and on February 1, 1001,
pused the Wilson bill. This reduced duties
even below the revenue point, and to make
up the defk-ii'Dcv aided au tuco.no tax.
While the Senate was Democratic, the
course of many of Its members was deter
mined by local interests tbat would be
affected br tbe proposed tariff, and tbe biH
wat returned to tbe House witb six hun
dred and thirty-four amendments, which
gave protection to some extent In sbreds
r,nd patches. A conference commit1 at
Urst failed to agree. In reportlugytbe dis
agreement to tbe House, Mr. Wilson pro
ducedaletter addressed to him by tbe Presi
dent, witb leave to make it piiblic. aud It
was read by tbe clerk. Iu ttft, Mr. Cleve

action of theBenate, as an abandonment of
Democratic pledges that meant "party per
fidy aud party dl-holior." Ilesidea con
demulng varioui features, be referred to

that he regarded ias due lu 'ihe methods
and manipulations of trusts and combina
tions " As might have be-u foreseen, this
was regarded ly the Senate as au attack on
lis integrity, anl aroused a resentment
that made compromise impossible. Final
ly tbe Ucmse surrendered unconditionally
and pasaed tbe bill as nmended by tbe Sen
ate. Therreeident would neither sign or ve
to it, Bnd in the absence of a veto it became
a le.w ten days later Hut the President's
allusions to trusts and combinations were
sft well founded tbat It was generally char
acterized as tbo "riugar Trust Tariff."
In the year following, a serious question
arose respecting tbe maintenance of ihe
Monroe doctrine in Boutb America. For
many years tbe boundary betweeu Vtrnezu
ela aud British Uulaua hud beeu iu dispute.
Great Britain claimed territory wills h Vene
zuela contended belonged to heir, and
fused to arbitrate. In July, 1?9V. our State
Deoartment announced mus-u . 1
tbe British Premier, tbat tbe o
Great Britain of the territory-
would be regarded as a violation oi
Monroe doctrine, and proposing a submis
sion of the boundary question to arbitra
tion. Lord Salisbury, inNovember, replied
that be regarded the Monroe doctnnu as in
applicable to the easeyand declined to arbi
trate. On Dei ember 7th tbe President sent
a special message .to Congress, describing
tbe situation, and recommending the ap
pointment of a ommisslon to Investigate
tbe subject: amy declaring that, In bis opin
ion, we should resist tbe appropriation by
Great Uritalnof -any territory which, after
investigation we have determined ot right
to belong id Venezuela." This message was
viewed luAoth countries as a conditional
declaratiofu of war, oud created great ex
cltemun. The proposed commission was
appoiurted. but before it reported. Great
Bntjn and Venezuela agreed to arbitrate.
-Ifter the controversy over the Sugar
Trufst Tariff, President Cleveland was left
rictiually without a party. In Congress,
ue southern and western Democrats, par-
eularly, Igoored him, and made it clearly
understood that he was no longer to be
thought of as a leader. At the National Con
vention of 1S9C, he was not even named
among tht lltteeu candidates voted for, and
on the Uftb ballot Wm. J. llryau was nomi
nated ou a flee rilver platform. In tue
cauipaigu tbat followed, Mr. Clevelaud sup
ported Buckuer and Palmer, the unmluees
of the gold standard Democracy. At the
close of his term he took up his residence in
1'ilncetou, where be lesiled until his death.
While, in tbeir estimate of Mr. Cleveland's
abilities ai.d intellectual attainments, tbe
people were naturally biased by tbelr agree
