THE DAILY .AUG US
JOHN W. POTTER.
Friday, January 4 189.
Thk postmaster general bas directed
that the eight new postal cars just com
pleted for the New York and Chicago
line be named as follows: "Daniel Man
ning." "Mr. Justice Field," "Gov. Felch."
after an ex governor of Michigan; "Geo.
8. Bangs," ex-general superintendent and
founder of the railway mail service;
"Gov. Gray," of Indiana; "Gov. Palmer,"
or Illinois; "W. F. Vilas." and "Allen
G. Thurman." All good names and ap
propriate. Will Blaine be premier of the coming
cabinet? Well, no Certainly not If Gen.
Harrison has the sagacity to read the les
sons of history rightly. Poor Garfield's
brief experience should be warning
enough for Mr. Harrison. It is probable
that if Blaine i not recognized by tho
offer of the secretaryship of state be and
his immense following will be a thorn in
the flesh of the administration. But for
tbe matter of that, BUine is bound to be
a distutbing elemeut any way, and It would
be better for Hurrinon to have the dis
turbance t ike place on tho outside than
in his bed chamber.
Trk fact tbat, notwithstanding the
election of Harmon, a majority of the
popular vote at the late election was cast
for Cleveland has evidently mane a deep
impression on tl public mind. That im
pression is strengthened by the fact tbat
Ctevehmd's plurality in his defeat in 1888
was morNjin three times as large as
that which obtained in the victory of
1884. From this lack of correspondence
between the popular and the electoral
vote, the New York Star says it is justly
concluded that the democratic party still
holds the confidence of the American
people. It is also urg'-d in some quarters
that the figures nhw that the election of
Harrison wa9 due to corruption, and that
while "Tilden was robbed outright, Cleve
land has fallen before the arts of bribery."
While no one proposes to attempt to ins
terfere with the declared and accepted
results of the presidential contest, it is
right that the whole truth respecting
the election should be learned and dis
passionately considered, with a view to
the future protection of the suffrage. Of
course, uoder our present system, an
honest vote might give the popular plu
rality to one candidate and the electoral
preponderance to another. The ques
tions now presented are: Was the recent
election in fact decided by corruption?
and, is it desirable to alter the constitu
tion so as to. provide for the election of
president and vice president by direct
vote of the people of the entire country?
Tbe investigation of frauds at the late
election must be thorough: the punish
ment of all found guilty of corruption,
must be severe. As 1Tiug"the con--SiitnTrlQTrffsterihat
is another thing.
The subject is broad, important and
many-sided, and it should be discussed
with much temperacce and deliberation
and with cartful regard to the possible
effect of a change in the anatomy of
states. The most serious objection to a
direct popular vote would be that the
supervision of national elections would
be under direct control of the party in
power; a very dangerous power to in
trust to any party in a government like

Indianapolis, Jan. 4. If external indi
cations irre any guiriu in such matters then
yesterday wits a veritable red-letter day
with Uwi. Harrison for cabinet-making and
for HmiwhinK spurious cabinets. The chief
interest of the day c jntured in the visit of
Senator Ilisroric, who arrived from Wash
ington at 12:W and drove at once to the
NHW-Deniaon, hern he registered, made m
hasty toilet, and drove directly to tbe resi
dence of the president-elect, arriving about
I u'clork, just in time to partake of the noon
day meal, which proves that he was an ex-pect-l
gtiost. Luncheon over, the general
and his guest repaired to the library, where
they remained closeted together until after
S, when the senator took his leave. No
third party was present during the long con
ference with Senntor Hiscoek. The pre-tl-dnnt-elect
was seen Inst evening, but be
adroitly refrained from giving thn slightest
hint as to the New York nitor's mission.
Nothing cniild lie learn! from Mr. Hiacock
either. Thn senator, whoso carriage nsver
left the door during his long conference,
drove rapidly to the hotel, grahtied bis
sachel, inquire 1 bow much his bill was,
walked briskly to his carriage, refusing to
slop a moment or say a word when solicited.
He seemed a little fttistrated uud in a rather
bad humor. Arriving at the station he was
obliged to pass through a cordon or reporters
who biy in wait They succeeding in halt
ing him at the iron gateway, where (he
crowd detained birn, an 1 to their numerous
inquiries he simply said: "U,ntlemen, my
visit was an unven:ful one, both politically
and personally." These are the words- that
three of the correspondents who were pres
ent attribute t him, and they agree that tbe
distinguished gentleman st ill labored under
an apparent disgruntled state of mind, either
real or assume I.
Mr. His.TOfk's apparent ill-humor, which is
not chronic with him, when considered in
connection with the gnninl, complacent
frame of mind in which Gin. Harrison was
found only an hour or so later, is more sig
nificant than the words attributed to the big
senator. After a long day's conference with
several distinguished public men it would
seem but natural that Gen Harrison should
show signs of fatigue ami an absence of his
urbanity, but on the contrary he was with
out a sign of worry or dissatisfaction. A
good many of Oen. Harrison's close friends
beli-ve tle cabinet is rbout finished, and if
these incidents are of any interest or
value they would seem to strengthen this
view of the situation.
Preston B I'lumb, of Kansas, was also a
visitor, and had a talk of an hour with tbe
president-elect. He declared his visit bad
no political significance, hut that he thought
Mr. Blaine would sit at tim head of the new
cabinet Another visitor of prominence
was Moses V. Field, of Detroit, oue of the
regents of Michigan university, and during
the campaign of ISTo chairman of the na
tional Greenback executive committee. He
would not say what he talked to (Ju... i;r

Thompson brought the general a very hand

delivered the gilt with one of bis hap

Blessed Are Those Who Kipect Nothing.
Kiw York, Jan. 4. The World publishes
two columns of conversations with intelli

which shows that tbe negro voters deem
themselves fairly entitled to representation

such recognition. Many thoughtful men
among them say tbat tbe time is not yet

from John Boyle O'Reilly, the order of

In an address to the people presented by the
committee on resolutions the growth of
Catholicism among the colored people is set
forth. The address continue:
We warn our people against all secret societies
condemned by the church, and hope they will
Joiu those benevolent societies which have the
chur l's sanction. With regard to the union of
mechanics, many of whom are Catholic, we
trust that they wiil give an opportunity to our
boys to become mastei-a of trade. As the evil of

among our people, we hope that they will do their
best to keep those under their chargn from all
evil habits. Light and frivolous reading is now
depraving the intelligence of many of our youths,

will place in the hands of their children books
that will be useful and entertaining.
Delegate Wood, of New York offered an
amendment incorporating in the address a
protest against the exclusion of colored
Roman Catholics from the pews of the white
members. This was disputed at great
length, and the address was finally referred
back to the committee for revision.
