Washington, D. C, Sept. 23, 1887.
As intimated in a former letter, there
is no secret here of the absolute divorce
of the Administration from the uncon
genial alliance with the Mugwumps.
The democracy never meant the union to
be an honorable and lasting one, and the
only matter of astonishment is that they
have sojourned together so long as they
have. The decree of separation has
been issued, and Cleveland leaves the
old lady and the off-spring to search
and wander for themselves, while he
rushes over, with all the household ef
fects, to the out-stretched arms of pure
unadulterated, partisan democracy. I
is the old story of promise, infamy and
desertion. And perhaps this treatment
is really merited. Certainly it is
perfect harmony with the history of the
democratic party for the last forty years
and more. They are good to promise,
but bad to redeem. The older readers
of this letter will well remember the
democratic campaign of Polk, Dallas,
and the Tariff of "42". That was the
battle cry then, for Pennsylvania was
necessary to success, and hence they
put Dallas on the ticket, a Pennsylvan
ian, and locked arms with protection,
and won the campaign. What was the
result Why, the very hrst session of
Congress under the administration of
Polk repealed the tariff of '42, and'that
by the casting vote of Dallas himself.
There is no use in multiplying instan
ces since that time to show the dupli
city and perfidy of the democratic par
ty. Its history is blurred from begin
ning to end with just such hypocrisy.
It is no better or worse now than forty
or twenty years ago, and there is no
hope of it being any better in the future
than in the past. Professions count for
nothing among thoughtful men. when
made by a party with such a history.
But the difficulty heretofore has been
that the thinking comes too late. That
a great misfortune'of the Mugwumps.
They left the Republican party in a fe
ver of heat because they did not like
the Chicago nominees, and that was all,
and tramped through the filth of a cam
paign over to the democratic camp
and received promises of food and shel
ter in consideration of their votes that
actually elected Cleveland. Now, after
two and a half years of quarrel and con
tention, they are unceremoniously point
ed down the back stairs of the Execut
ive Mansion. It don't seem possible
that there are other discontents that
want to try their hand with democracy,
after all the teachings of the p&st.
A new idea has just forced itself to
the front hick is making quite a com
motion among the Department Clerks.
The Civil Service Commission, desirous
of "turning the rascals out", have
racked their,brains for every conceivable
pretense, and at last have hit upon an
additional device. It has the semblance
of fairness and rather in accord with
the spirit of the Civil Service law, ifto
construed as revolutionary in its action.
They have discovered the momentous
fact that several of the Northern and
Western States have more than their
quota of appointments, while several of
the Southern States have less, and that
several are credited to States who real
ly have no legal residence therein. The
whole thing is to be investigated, and
the surplus cut off, and particularly
those who are wrongly credited. This
of course means Republicans and is re
garded as an excellent subterfuge to
make place for administration adhe
rents. It looks like pretty small busi
ness, but the pressure is so fearful and
the clamor so persistent, and the needs
of the confederates so pressing, that
there is scarcely any way of escape, so
the door will be opened, and experience
and skill will walk out while incompe
tency and swagger will stroll in, and all
under the guise of "improving the
The State Department is consider
ably incensed at the recent speech of
the Queen in closing the British Parlia
ment, wherein she claims, among other
things, that the joint commission to
settle the fish question between the
Government anu England, is another
distinct and positive triumph of British
diplomacy. As to the truth of this
claim, the people of this country aie in
blissful ignorance up to date, for the
State Department has resolutely ab
stained from giving the public any in
formation touching negotiations going
on. The declaration of the Queen, in
so public a mannei, tingles the ear of
Secretary Bayard, and the prospects
of any laurel wreaths dangling from
his massive brow in the settlement of
this vexed question that has stirred up
a good deal of bad blood, seems to be
vanishing away like morning mist. It
is not improbable that the sequel will
show that with less pretense to dignity
and more practicable application of
brain force in our foreign relations, the
rights of American citizens would be
better secured. You wil remember that
last winter when this question was up
in Congress, the democracy mounted
the war horse with flying colors, under
the leadership of Perry Belmont, Chair
man of the House Committee on foreign
relations, and passed very seveie retal
iatory resolutions. It was a huge
bluster, and amounted to nothing. Let
us hope that the Queen in her congratu
lations, may prove a little premature,
and that after all we are not completely
worsted in this important contest.
The New Green Stamp.
Change only in colorThe Stamped

Washington Special "Milori green"
is the color of the new postage stamps
now beginning to make their appear
ance. For the benefit of people who
are not up in technical names of the va
rions shades of green as expressed in
printers' ink and other high art circles,
it may be stated that this green is ex
actly the same shade as that used for
the three-cent postage stamps which
were in use when the letter postagfl
was changed from three cents to two
The change in color of the two-cent
stamps which was decided upon by the
postoffice department some time ago
took place on the 12"th of the present
month. It will take some time, howev
er, for the new green stamps to get into
general use, for the department re
quired all the postmasters to sell out all
their old two-cent stamps of the metal
lie red color before beginning the sale
of the new ones. There is no change in
the design of the two-cent stamp, the
only change being in color. As the old
three-cent stamp is still issued in its
original color of miloii green, its color
will now be changed to Vermillion in
order to prevent confusion in disting
uishing between the two denominations
There will be no change in color of any
of the other postage stamps at present.
In the stamped envelopes there will be
a change of the color of the two-cent
stamps so that it will correspond with
the color of the ordinary two-cent
stamps. The change in the stamps of
the envelopes will not be made so soon
as^that of the stamps as the contractors
have a pretty 1 irge supply of the old
color on band.
The postoffice department is a little
inclined to be tender with its stamped
envelope contractors. The department
contracts for and sells over 300,000,000
stamped envelopes in a year, and it is
a pretty difficult thing to get contract
ors to undertake so big a task and do it
at low rates. Contracts now in force
are so low that the department is able
sell some of its stamped envelopes at
a dollar a thousand above the price of
the stamps upon them. It even retails
some of them in lots of five or ten or
twenty-five at the same lew rate of a
dollar a thousand, or ten cents a hun
dred. The price to the general public
which is in the habit of paying at the
rate of 40 cents a hundred for envelopes
is quite a revelation, and the depart
ment is anxious to do all it can to keep
the rate down to its lowest figure.
As indicated above, the department
sells over three hundred million stamped
envelopes in a year. And how many
postage stamps do you suppose it sells?
More than sixteen hundred millions.
The figures for the past year have not
yet been given to the public, but it is
probable they will show the number of
postage stamps sold in the year ending
June 30, 1887, to be over seventeen
Add to this the 300,000,000 of stamped
envelopes and you have over 2,000,000,-
000 of stamps sold in the year, or an
average of forty apiece to the entire
population. Addlto this 360,000,000 of
postal cards, the newspaper wrappers,
newspaper stamps, postage due stamps,
special delivery and so fort you hadn,
have a total of about 2,500,000,000
stamps sold in a year.
Excitement in Texas.
Great excitement has been caused in
the vicinity of Paris, Tex., by the re
markable recovery of Mr. J. E. Corley,
who was so helpless he could not turn
in bed, or raise his head everybody
said he was dying of consumption. A
trial bottle of Dr. King's New Discov

bought a large bottle and a box of Dr.
Kings New Life Pills by the time he
had taken two boxes of Pills and two
bottles of the Discovery, he was well

The recent disastrous fire at Lake
Crystal, which is deplored by all the citi

of the residents ot that village, as it
was evidently the work of an incendia

and acting on the impulse of the mo
ment a posse of twenty five residents
masked themselves about ten o'clock
last night and wended their Avay to
Postmaster Kelley's store, wheie Syl
vester was engaged as a clerk. Upon
the mob's approaching the store a most
unearthly scream rang upon the ears of
the villagers, emanatingjf rom a woman,
the wife of the man sought. The in
dignant posse assembled upon the walk
in front of the store, but not an audible
word was uttered. Mr. Kelley immed
iately guessed the cause of their visit,
as he had been told in the morning that
Sylvester must be discharged from his
employ or it would cause trouble Mr.
K. therefor informed Sylvester that the
feeling against him was so intense that
he was obliged to give him his time.
At the time of the visit Sylvester was in
the store and when the masked men
approached he turned a livid hue and
almost wilted. Mr. Kelley is a'nervy
fellow and stepping to thefront demand
ed the would-be avengors to depart.
Not acting upon his suggestion he called
upon the marshall to arrest the intrud
ers, but the cautious official refused to
do so, claiming that no breach of the
peace had occured. In the mean time
Sylvester vanished from view. Soon
thereafter the crowd begao to dissem
ble, and in a few moments all was
quiet again. Mankato Free Press.
