PRESIDENT AND SENATE, vi
PEZ MSCE BETWEEN THE TWQ IS
NOW SQUARELY JOINED,
Mr. Cteveland Presents, in a Ciea and
Forcible Manner, his View of the Power
of Appointment and Removal,
The President's message to the Sen- d
ate in regard to its demands for papers :r
was received when the Senate was in
secret session. When it was laid be
fore the body Senator Harris proposed I
that it be read with closed doors. C
Senators Kenna and Van Wyck pro
tested against this proceeding and de
manded that the doors be opened.
After a brief debate Senator Harris
withdrew his proposition, and when
the doors were opened, the messago
was read. The fobowing i- its full i
To the Senate qf the United States:
Ever since the beginning of the
present session of the Senate the dif
ferent heads of departments attached
to the executive brau~ch of the govern
ment have been plied with various
requests and demands from the con
mittees of the Senate, frona member-.
of such committees, ana at last from
the Senate itself, requiring the tratns
mi.sion of the reasons for the suspen
sion of certain official,. during the
recess of that body; or for the paper.
touching the conduct of such officialk;
or for all papers and documents relat
ing to such suspensions; or fur a!.
docuiments and papers filed in such
depa.tmenats in relation to the manage
ment and conduct of the offices held
by such suspended officials. The dif
ferent terms from ttnte to time adopted
in making these requests, and the de
mands or the order in which they sue
ceeded each other, and the fact thai
whei made by the Senate, the resolu
tion for that purpose was passed in
executive session, have led to a pre- e
sumption the correctness of which t
wifi, I suppose, be candidly admitted,
that from the first to the last the in
formation thus sought and the papers
thus demanded were desired for use
by the Senate and its committees in
considering the propriety of the sus
pensions referred to. Though these
suspensions are my executive acts, e
based upon considerations addressed
to me alone, and for which I am whol
ly responsible, I have had no invita- t
tion from the Senate to state the posi
tion which I have felt constrained to
assume in relation to the same or to
interpret for myself my acts and mo
tives in the premises. In this coudi- t
don of affairs I have foreborne ad
dressing the Senate upon the subject a
lest I might be accused of thrusting
myself unbidden upon the attention of i
that body; but the report of the Com
mittee on the Judiclary of the Senate,
lately presented and published, which
censures tne Attorney-General of the
United States for his refusal to trans
mit certain papers relating to suspen (
dons fromoffice, and whi-h also, if I ,
correctly interpret it, evinces a mi
apprehe'nsion of the position of the ,
Executive upon the question of such
suspension, will I hope justify this y
commnnitioad6n This report is pred- ,
icated upon a resolution of the Senate t
directed to the Attorney-General, and i
hisiepl' to.the same resolution was
witr the consideration of nominations
for-offie. 'It required the Attorney- e
General "to transmit to the Senate a
* opies; of all documnents and papers a
thatibave been filed in the Department ~
-ofiustiee -since the 1st day of Jann. 5,
arv, 1885, in relation to the manage- a
ment and conduct of the office of Dis
trict Attoruiey of the United States for ~
the Southern District of Alabama."
The incumbent of this office, on the ~
1st day of January, 1885, and until
the 17th, day of July ensuing, was
George M. Dustin, who on the da:.
last mentioned was suspended by ex- e
ecutive order- and Johu D.- Burnett
was designated to perform the duties j
of said offlce. At the time of the ~
eissg etl the resolution above re- C
fere ~ to the nomination of Burnet' v
for said office was pending before the ~
-Senate, and all papers relating to said
nomnination were before that body for ,
~ils inspection and infortnatiou. It,
reply t'kikis resolution, the Attorney
General, alter refer ring to the tact that c
the papers-relating to the nomiuation ti
of Burnett had already been sent to
the Senat', stated that tie was directed -~
by the Pr~esient to say that the papers ti
and dociuments which were mentioned d
ins said ros'dumion, and still remaining a
in the custody of this Department, 6
having exclusive reference to the sua- 5
pension by the President of George M.
Dustin, -the late incumbent ot the ~
office of District Attorney for the ,
Southern Diatrict of Alabama, it is
not considered that the public inter- h
ests will be promoted by a compliance c
with said resolution and the transmis
sion of the papers and documents
therein mentioned to the Senate in
*Upon this resolution and the an- t
swer th-ereto the issue is thus stated by g
the Committee on the Judiciary, at the -
outset of' the report: - "The important ~
question, then, is whether it is within
the constitutional competence of either y
House of Congress to have access to h
the (mifal papers and documents in ~
tU-e various public offices of the United
Staten, created ->y the laws enacted by o
I do not suppose that the ptublic 14
officers.otf the United States are regu- a
lated or controlled in their relations to
either.House of Congress by the fact r
that they were "created by the lswi
enacted by themselves." It must be t
that these instrumentalities were cre- t
ated for the benefit of the people and r
to answer the general purposes of the ti
government under the Uonastitution i(
and laws, and that they are unencum
bered by any lien in favor of either
branch of Congress growing' out of
-their construction, and unemabarrassed te
y~b any obligation to the Senate as the
' rice of their creation.
\ 1he complaint of the committee that
ace.ass to the official papers in the pub- 0
lic offices is denied the Senate is met q
by the statement that at no time has it ~
been the disposition or intention of the '
President or any department of the a
executive branch of government to n
withhold from the Senate official docn- .
mnents or papers filed in aty of the ~
public offices. While it is by no meatns 0
conceded that the Senate has the right !
in any case to review the acts of the ~
Executive in removing or suspending t
~~~a public officer upon official documents '
C~r otherwise, it is considered that thev
documents and papers of that nature
should, because they are official, be t
freely transmitted to the Senate upon e
its demand, trusting the use of tn-e
same for proper and legitimate pur- a
poses to the good faith of that body, p
and though no such paper or document! al
has b. en specifically d'emanded i-i any a

a the recess of the Senate, of federal

the President alone by the Consti
tion, which, in express terms, pro
ides that the "executive power shall be

tates of America," and that "he shall

The following is the concluding par

~ntly offered in the .confirmation of

rowal that susa'ensions have been
iade on art rou~ndsaoane, nor the
threat proposed in the resolutions now
before the Senate that no confirmations
will be made unless the demands of
that body be complied with, are
sufficient to discourage esr deter me
from following in the way which, I
am convinced, leads to the better gov
ernuent of the people."
WHAT TIIE PAI'Es SAY.
The President's Vight is the Peoplei'
Fight and they will Stxnd by Him.
(.From the Ner Tork Star.)
Thoe Democratic Senators who
view the President's action with alarm
do not, we fear, cr-mprehend the mat
ter at issue. The question is iot
whether a few Democrat% more or
less shall iminediately obtain uffices,
but whether the execuive power of
the United States shall be exercised by
the man to whose hands the people
confided it. Once before the people
withdrew that po% er from the Repub
lian party, but, bv audacimus traii on
one ide and tiniid leadership on the
other, the Republican politirians set
the popular will at defiance and seized
and held the power denied them. Now
the reinant of that revolutionary
party is trying to accomplish by in
trirue and obstruction the thing that
bolder rascals achieved openly nine
years ago. The outraged people al
last see that their chosen leader is
ready to make their fight, ani, it will
o hard with any Democrat who now
falters or falls to the rear.
The President's fight is the people'
fight. It is the fight of tle- Denocratic
party to whoin the people gave power.
Democrats will stand togeiher in -up
porting their leader in the "ontebt.
Sneh considerations as an t-fhee more
or less, or a delay inl confirunng up
pointuients, will not concern then.
They are arrayed once more againsi
their old antago)nists, and disconenits
and disappointments will disrppear iN
the joy of combat. The g od cld
partv is always at its best in a fight.
Nothing else so fills it with enthutiasm
and fuses it into unity. It delights tc
stand by a man who has the pluck tc
lead it, and old Jackson's "By the
Eternal" is still music to its ears. It
will love Grover Cleveland all the
better if he swears it still roundet
oath that the people have elected him

The President has answered the
extraordinary demands of the Senate

OF FACTS FOR THE PUBLIC
ATLANTA, GA., Januery 12, 1885.
Emerging from a severe and long spell
of typhoid fever, I discovered that the
fever had settled in liy right leg; which
caused it to swell to an enormous sn.e,
remaining so quite three years, resisting
all treatment. A small uleer finally made
its appearance a little above the ankle
which r-fused to heal to any and all exter
nal applieation and the use of the most
noted )l odl poison remedies.
The ulcer continued to enlarge, fre
quently discharging, perhaps, as much as
a cupful of pus or matter per day The
size of the ulcer was about two inches in
diameter, extending to a depth near the
bone. At one time it appeared that the
flesh in all contiguous parts, would surely
become a running sore, as its peculiarly
I flabby, spotted and unhealthy condition
clearly iudicated, and it was intimated
that 1 miight lose my leg. My condition
becoming so critical, and the ulcer enlarg
ing so rapidly, we sent for Dr. J. P. Drom
gool)e, who made a thorougn examination,
I and said that the flesh on my leg for six
i-hes around the sore would soon slough
off if not remedied; that I must have my
ieg bandaaed daily and commence the use
of B. B. B.
I acted according to his instructions, and
aftor usuing the second bottle, the ulcer
looked fresh and healthy and commenced
healing. I continued the use of B. B. B.,
and to the greatest astonishment and satis
faction of myself and friends, the ulcer
coitiiuted to heal rapidly and is now en
tirely well, and I am attending to my busi
ness at W. H. Brotherton's store. I do
not hesitate to recommend B. B. B. as a
wonderful, speedy and effectual blood
purifier, far superior to anything else I
