Some of Hanna's subsidized
aro asserting that there has
been a large reduction in the number
of farm mortgages in the Western
States since the present administration
came into poucr. Such may bo
the case, but they dare not stato the
way in which the reductions .have
been brought. In theflrstplace thero
have been few If any of these mort
gages paid off even within the past
few years, and the Xow that have been
paid will be found to come from
states where the majority of the people
voted' for Bryan and were-counted
for Hanna's mortgaged man. Hanna
had the list of men who were to hold
the election in all of the close and
doubtful States. In very many instances
the-men who held the election
had a mortgage held over their
farms. All that Hanna wanted was
to know the man thus encumbered
and that he would trade. The 6equol
tolls the story. But there are other
ways in which the number of these
mortgages have been reduced, first
by foreclosure and second by the dis
heartened farmer abandoning his
farm and freeing himself from the
heavy burden imposed by tho mortgage,
gathers up his family and seeks
a home in the Southern States, where
a genial climate, a fertilo soil, and a
hospitable welcome awaits him. All

COLLECTOR YERKES' REMOVALS.
The wholesale removal of Demo-crate
from the revenue service by
Collector Yerkes has called forth some
salty comments Among thcsT -we
note two. the first from his home pa-
paper, tne Danville Advocate:
"Collector Yerkes has discovered
that tho revenue service, under his
jurisdiction, is over burdened with
employes, and, in order to relieve the
situation, has recommended the revocation
of the commissions of a number
of good Democrats who aro drawing
no salary from the government,
but who sre eligible to an assignment
whenever their services arc needed.
By revoking their commissions the
dismissal of these employes is accomplished.
But tho civil service
order of the President positively prohibits
the removal of an emploe in
the classified service without charges
are first preferred against him and
his guilt established after a fair trial
It looks like the Collector's recom
incndatioti, which is practically a notice
of dismissal, is in conflict with
tne civil service rules, but then if the
service has an overplus of employes
it also looks like his action was insti
gated by motives of economy. In
view of the fact that Democrats who
hold commissions in the revenue service
are no expense to tho Government
when they arc idle but are very
much in the way of the distribution
of patronage, tho natural conclusion
is that Collector Yerkes has discovered
an ingenious way of circtmm tiling
the restrictions placed upon him
by the civil service regulations in
the matter of the disposition of the
offices under him. As everything is
fair in politics, the Collector's
has excited admiration rather
than adverse criticism."
A Nicholasville Democrat.'in speak
ing of the matter to a correspondent,
said: "This letter on the face of it is
a violation of the Civil Service law.
it is a rank violation and one which
I venture the assertion has not been
done by any other collector in tho
United States. About a month ago
the Commissioner sent out a circular
to all the employes in the district,
saying that they would not be dismissed
from the service unless
charges of irregularity in office were
preferred and 10 days notice would
be given to the man against whom
the charge was made to answer it.
Now this letter of Mr. Yerkes is certainly
in direct violation of the letter
sent out by the Commissioner of Internal
Still another, the Georgetown Times
'Mr. Yerkes Is too amiable a gentleman
to enter upon tho work of decapitation
in the usual cold-blooded
way. He never uses stones to bring
a political opponent down from a tree
when turfts of grass will do as well.
His letter to the old employes, turning
them out in the cold, rends as if
it gave him great pain to write it."
