the mission to tho court of the
Emporor William be ralsod from the
second to tho rlrst class. In that meuago
he alleged that the new German empire
was in many respects similar to the polit
ical system of tho United States.
"It is the adoption in Europe," ho said,
of American ideas."
If these allegations ot our learned chief
magistrate bo true, it will be worth while
to note where, in ono important particu

and the United States aro essentially die-
imilar. This particular difference is in

Wo respectfully suggest tho adoption in
America of German ideas on this subjoct.
Tho Empire, as at presont constituted,
contains a population slightly over forty
millions of people. There nro twenty-fix
distinct states, the most important and
populous of which is Prussia, whose kine;
s also tho emperor. The government of
Alsaco and Lorraine is not yet finally set
tled, but the other states are governed by
four kings, sovon princes, six grund dukes
and five dukos ; throo the frco states as
they areuallod are governed exclusively
iy legislative bodies. Thoso soveral states
upport a standing army of three hundred
and oighty-three thousand men, and an
already considerable and constantly grow
ing navy. Their aggregate public debts,
including tho fcdoral debt, amount to ten
hundred und forty-five millions of dollars.
How much do you supposo it costs the
pooplo of Germany to support twenty-two
royal families, an army 38.'J,000 strong,
their navy, tho payment of the iutorost on
tho foderal and local debts, the support of
foreign missions, pensions, and nil tho
other expenses growing out of the system
which Gen. Grant has likened to that of
tho United Stated ?

It would certainly be a good thing to

to go back on his appointmont, wbon it
would be discovered that bis unfitness for
an oMcial position of any kind was notori
ous. As a residont of Now, York city he
was known as a common brawlor and
ttrect-rowdy. A frncus of n disroputablo
character brought him into tho courts, and
spread his name abroad. It would subse
quently bo found that Georgo II. But
ler was appointed to tho chief diplomatic
position in tho Orient, with a full and gen
eral knowledgo of his character, as ono of
tho moans adopted to gratify Gen. llcnj.
F. Butler, a near rolativu of the consul
general. Tho next discovery would be
that Consul General Butlor't official con
duct fully Untitled his prlvato charactor as
a rough. Ho onterod upon a long sproo at
tho samo timo that ho assumed the duties
of his consular position. He began tho
disgraco which ho has brought upon tho
country by soliciting and accepting n reg
ular salary from tho khodivo Hi
addition to that paid by
bis own government. He bar
tered off consular agencies and took
part in money-making schomcs prohibited
by consular regulations. It Is stated that
he acquired nearly '.21,000 in gold by
these meant, though devoting himself al
most exclusively to personal dissipation.
He opened nearly all letters that came di
rected to tho care of tho consulate, and
concealed its meanness by either sup
pressing them altogether or explaining
that they had been opened by mlstuko.
He attracted ;tho ill-will of tho peoplo or
the country, and put to blush the American
travelers who visited Egypt. Finally ho
brought his career to a suddon and disgrace
ful termination by shooting and wound
inga man in a drunken brawl. Startled at
this, ho had the quick ingenuity to tolo
graph to his undo and protector at homo
to secure him nn immediato leave of ab
sence, which was forwarded to him by ca
ble This enabled him to leave the scene
of his fights and drunken rows still clothed
with oflicial dignity.
Tho historian of Americau civil-service
would find tho evidence of all this
in tho affidavit of one A. D. Strologo,
who officiated as private secretary
to Consul General Butler, and who
now roveals the latler's disgraceful pro
ceedings because he had been swindled
out of hit proportion of tho profits which
'.he consul general had promised him for
his silenco and co-operation. A moro
trustworthy witness may bo found, how
ever, in Gen. Starring, who, as special
agent of the United States treasury, made
an investigation of Butler's official con
duct, and submitted a report to tho gov
ernment near. y a year ago. It is known
that Gen. "Starring report let
forth materially what has since
become a matter of notoriety; but
tho report was corcfully stowed
away in tho government archives, and
withheld from the public, in ordor that
Consul General Butler might continue
bis disgraceful career under the
protection of tho United States govern
ment. It is probable that the futuro his
torian of the American civil-sorvico sys
tem will find this circumstanco more dam
aging to the administration than anything
that can bo said concerning Murphy,
Casey, Cramer, Hudson, Lector Stocking.
