In an interview with a newspaper
reporter the other day Civil Service
Commissioner, iiooscvclt, said :
Wc have almost as much need of
applicants as from Arkansas. At flic
Missouri examinations last summer
twenty-live men passed our clerkship
examination. Twenty of them have
got their appointments in Washing

few remaining on the list of eligiblcs
have low averages, villi one execptiou.
In the examination for copyists only
one Missourian parsed at 7.1 per cent,
lie has been appointed. I happen to
know that from Missouri both Demo
crats and Ilepublicaus have been ap
pointed and very few men have been
passed by when their grade entitled
them to appointment. There is an
urgent need of high-class male clerks
and copyists from Missouri. ( f those
who pass these examinations well a

That is the view an unprejudiced ob

of affairs in the Southern States, and
yet w hen the Republican party pro

United States law, traitors enough
within the party were drummed
together to aid the lcueliciaries ol
these outrages to defeat its passage.
A scandal on the United Stales and a
matter of which all humanity has
ciuse to be ashamed! Is it surprising
that foreign newspapers, inimical to
the United States, should thus de

I.riIK(.ATIOX AFKf TIX TR tDl;,
It will he welcome news to invest
ors everywhere that the Farmers'
Alliance party has been defeated on
one issue in at least one Western
State. Kansas fortunately has an
intelligent railroad commission which
has stood out even at the cost of its
own popularity against the outrage
ous demands that have been made by
the farmers. Its members have never
beeu accused of venality, and they
have had the courage to point out the
circumstances which made the cost of
operating railroads in Kansas greater
than iu the East or even in Iowa. In
spite of this a maximum rate bill has
beeu passed by the House, and there
was a division on party lines, the
issue being honesty or dishonesty.
The Alliance members voted solidly
for the bill, and the Republicans and
the Democrats stood solidly together
against it. Thus is the Alliance re
cognized as a new- party in favor of

investigator has made a mistake, and
he would have done well to wait for
the population figure of l:io. Tin
notion that the negro population w ill

fiction. It had its origin from the
fact that the census of 1S70 was so
badly taken in the South that the cen

probable thai the eleventh census will

throw light upon the whole ij nest ion

form a ba-is for subseipieut investi

The only bulletin thus far issued by
the Ceu.-us Office in regard to this
matter is the ouc mentioned above,
regarding the States of Alabama and
Iowa. The results of the inquiries in
those Slates may be suuuiuirized
briefly as follows :

Per capita mortgage debt in Ala

or A.3 per i cut., in Iowa 3,"J4t.,4:l-J or
9.1 per cent.
The average life of mortgages is in
Alabama -.73 year;, and iu Iowa 1.9;!
The interest charges vary so much
from 1 to 40 per cent, in Alabama
and from 1 to -0 per cent, in Iowa
that it is impossible at present to
compute the average rate of interest.
One of the most valuable portions
ol the inquiry was that instituted in
to the motive ot the mortgage. It
was found that almost everywhere
more than 90 per cent, of the indebt
edness was incurred for the purchase
of the property. A very large pro
portion ol the debts contracted, too.
were city lots, even in Iowa, which is
one of the most purely agricultural
States iu the Union. Of the $199.
000,000 of mortgage indebtedness
there 50.ti00,000, or one-fourth, was
contracted upon city lots: leaving
only $11Q.0ii.0ii0 on suburban and
As has been said, Iowa is one of
flic most purely agricultural States.
It is a State hardly an acre of which
is unavailable for farming or grazing.
It is well settled. Therefore, the fact
that only 9 per cent, of its laud arc
incumbered by mortgages at all is ex
ceedingly eucoiiragiug. If ouly one
tcuth of the laruis ot Iowa are mort
gaged. II docs not seem probable that
mortgages w ill be found upon a very j
much larger proportion of I he lands!
iu other Western Stales: while, as for!
the Southern Slates, the statistics of
Alabama go to show that the mort
gage burden th ?rc is even lighter
than it is in the Northwest.

Mr. Jacob Zouk savs the death of
(ieu. Sherman vividly recalls to his
mind an iucident that happened at
l.i Porte in the fall of 1867. Gen.
Sherman passed through there, and
before the train arrived the news
spread all through the city that he
was coming. The consequence was
that a large crowd gathered at the
depot. When the train pulled in, it
was seen that in the Sherman coach
ihe blinds ou the side next to tbe
depot were all closed. The crowd
surged around to the other side, and
catching sight of a man with his
back toward the window began yell
ing at him. Presently tho window
was opened, anil Gen. Sherman stick
ing his head out. asked what thev
w auled. Mr. Zook was well in front
and cried out as loud as he could, "A
-pcech, a speech!" The general looked
at the crowd a moment, and then said:
-Where were all you fellows when
the last draft was made?" Gen. Sher
man had been told that when the last
draft, was made not an able-bodied
man could be found in Laporte. Mr.
Zook says the crowd was completely
squelched, and the sarcastic old war
rior wan permitted to go on his way
in peace. Klkhiirl. lud., Hteicir.
