Followiii-; Hose upon the New York
Star's arraignment of the President tW
his willul violation of the pledge to the
icople of the Tnioii concerning the
removal of competent officials in the
various hrauehes of tlie Federal govern
ment, anil his avowal that he, Mr. Harri
son, would not permit party aggrandize
ment or the furtherance of party power
to enter into his administration of the
law in appointments or removals where
the interests of the public were para
mount to party pretereiice, the able Phil
adelphia Record sarcastically remarks:
Some complaint is being made that
President Harrison and the Icadingmcin
bcrs of his Cabinet are absenting them
selves from Washington while ipicstions
of pressing national moment, demand
their attention. That this complaint, so
far as the President is concerned, is nol
well founded is shown by the fact that in
one day ot his vacation he removed not
less than thirty-nine postmasters and
tilled their places. This proves not only
that the President wastes no timeduring
his summer holiday , but that the air ot
Peer Park is having a most invigoratm:
cftcct upon Ins constitution. .ot main
men could pertorm so great an amount
of official labor as was involved in the
removal of thirty-nine postmasters ii
one dav. Assistant postmaster genera
Clarkson has made not less than l."o
removals in a dav; but these related
merely to village postmasters whose
eases required little consideration. Prcsi
dent Harrison, on the other hand, wa;
obliged to consider numerous conflicting
claims in making nearly every appoint
meat, so that lus task was much more
laborious than that of the subordinate
headsman of the post office department.
Of these thirtv-niiic postmasters
moved and "resigned" just one served
to the end of his four years term. Tin
solitary exception in one day s work ot
decapitation affords a gratilying prool
that President Harrison and his Ad
ministration sometimes pay homage t(
the four-ycnr-tei in act.
As for the Ilehring Sea question am
other national matters awaiting Execu
tive attention, what are these compared
with the importance of making places for
clamorous partv followers?
In further proof of the President's
activity, one day last week, on his return
to Washington hum .New Ivngland, Ik
settled the question ol applying the Civil
Service rules to the Census Bureau. Com
missioner Roosevelt demonstrated in a
well-considered argument the necessity
ot putting tins bureau under the Civil
Service system in nccorduee with the
spirit of the act of last Congress creating
tlie bureau. Hut the i 'resident, after
devoting an entire day to an investiga
tion of the subject, decided that the
offices of the Census Mureau, numbering
about one thousand all told, were the
legitimate spoils of parly, and should be
As a set-off to this decision the Presi
dent supported Commissioner Roosevelt
in his demand that the postmaster at
Indianapolis should immediately remove
three obnoxious persons whom he had
appointed to clerkships in violation ot
the Civil Service rules. So well pleased
was Commissioner Roosevelt with the
action ol the President that hecxclaimed :
"President Harrison gives me tree play in
enforcing the Civil Service law;" and lie
hied him to his Western cattle ranch.
It need not be said that Census Super
intendent Porter said the rest of the
spoilsmen were stil more gratilied by the
active intervention of tlie President in
their behalf. A less active and industrious I
man than President Harrison might hav
postponed this decision until after the
dog-davs indeed, his ill-natured political
enemies will doubtless sav that a Prcsi
dent having any regard for Civil Service
Reform or the true meaning of the lawol
Congress creating the Census Mureau
would never have made such a decision
But it will not do to charge, in face
of all this evidence to the contrarv, that
President Harrison is neglecting his
official duties during his summer vaca
tion. In the opinion of his lending ad
visers and adherents the distribution of
the spoils of victory is the first duty of a
President, and to this he is devoting his
strict attention, whether in Washington
or at Deer Park.
Sullivan and tlie Houlh.
The Hon. John L. Sullivan, who has
just returned from a brief visit to Missis
sippi, to which he mav he comiK'lled to
pay a longer one after awhile, like many
other distinguished visitors to that sec
tion, expresses himself as much pleased
with the jeople of the South. It spite of
the unsympathetic conduct ot Judge
Terrill, the absurd action of the iurv
which had the honor of trying the cham
pion and the impolite attentions ot inv.
Lowry, Mr. Sullivan is magnanimous
towards the Southern people ana not
disposed to judge them harshly. He be
lieves that the great majority of them
repudiate the course of their official rep
resentatives, as he thinks is shown by
"encouraging letters which he has re
ceived from men in the highest social and
business circles." There arc fools in all
sections of the country", unfortunately,
and the South is not without its share,
'it we fear that the public will not Ik
..isposed to accept Mr. Sullivan's state
ment about his popularity in that quar
ter without a very large pinch of salt.
The fact is, Mr. Sullivan's head has been
swelling visibly since his encounter with
Mr. Kilrain, and iersoiis unacquainted
with his career might imagine from the
way he talks that he was a "bigger
man" in every resect than Washington
r lirant. The truth is, Mr. Sullivan is
simply a professional slugger to whom
nature lias given strong muscles and a
hard head. Viewed as a slugger, he has
no more claim to distinction or consider
ation than a hard kicking mule. He has
used his physical gifts for no good or
useful purpose, but has employed them
in a way to encourage violence, disorder
ind breaches of the peace. He richly de
serves the sentence which has been im
posed upon him, and it is to Ik hoped
will receive it without the deduction of a
minute from the full term. To make he
roes of such men is a foul libel upon a
rand moral quality which is often
it rouges t in the weakest, and of which
the Boston slugger has never had the
most remote conception.
The "MarkiH of Montana."
New York Sun.
Mr. Russell H. Harrison leaves the
wonilering Old World to-day, and starts
lor his native shores. The steamer that
carries the clastic and jervasive younker
hasthc mostimpressivejob that has been
intrusted to any boat since the days ol
the famous dory that carried Ca'sar and
his fortunes. Besides the Republican
policy, a line ehcekstonc, given him by
the Shah, a napkin marked "V. R.,"and a
liarv chock full of reminiscences of Nobs
That He Has Met, the Markis of Mon-;
tuna brings with him a choice lot of ling-
iish Trouserings in the Latest Loudon
Style, so that the meeting between him
and Wanamaker will be doubly affecting.
The return of the Markis of Montana
will be an event to make strong men grin.
It will adtl to thegaycty of nations. It
will freshen Republican politics. Blow,

ute wind to brass! Show your tickets,

THE SKW STATICS.
SK.'akiiiK of the admission of tlie new
States in the far West.au exchange says:
"It is uurtliiiij? but Kriitifyinj; that the
people of these ureal territories should
become citizens of a "free country" while
in a pre-established condition of slaverv.
The laboring men, the"lione and sinew?
according to Senator I'ujjh, alreadv
wear the shackles ol the nionev kirn's
The territories are to lie-in their exist
ence as States weighed down bv an in
cubus, and with the prosperity which
their great agricultural resource's should
bring them, retarded by the tvraimv of
the corporations and monopolies."
This is a plain, somewhat harsh state
ment ol a condition ot tacts. The t'acihe
States already in existence, arc practically
owned by the great railroad magnates or
mining combinations. The suffrage is
mere matter of form. Memlicrs of the
legislatures are designated, projierly
shaking bought, and their duties are
clearly defined in advance. Senators prac
tically elect themselves by buying their
seats. The money king is supreme. The
Republican party can therefore claim
with certainty the control of the new
States. The alliance lietween that partv
and the money power, if not a natural
one, is at any rate practical and effective.
Most of these money magnates are Re
publicans, able and anxious to pay any
price for place, power and protection.
The white men, the fanner, the mechanic,
the laborer, have less voice than the ne
groes of the South in the direction of af
fairs, if indeed the negro suffers any
wrong at all; whereas, the white man of
those territories, presumably intelligent,
has bis vote cut and dried for him, and
must do exactly as he is bid.
Victoria and Cannon.
It is painful to read that Col. Victoria
cannot abide the noise of cannon. It
would seem that in view of this inliriiiitv
the Colonel ought to resign the command
t her (lerman regiment. The Colonel's
stcemcil relative. George IV. used to sav
that he liked to hear the rattle and bang
if muskets. "It makes me think of a
,-ollcy of champagne bottles oticnintr."
his Majesty was pleased to say. "And
the smoke anil dust gives one such a
thirst." And yet George was no soldier,
but the first, biggest, and most monu
mental ol that race w hich is now known
as the Chumps.

reasons, proof of disability has hitherto

to rascality as this that will one day
cause the radical reconstruction, if not
the entire destruction, of the Tension Bu
reau. At the present time and under ex
isting direction it is scarcely more than a
tool ol organized mendicancy.
