on an t quality with Judge Woods will be
a luscious morsel for the Harrison fac

of Gresham for Woods will, perhaps,
aid in explaining this most sLameless sp
Katk Field found something distaste
ful in London. She didn't like the
method of naming, numbering and light
ing the streets. She says: '"Few people
in the metropolis drtsm of having the
number of their bouse painted upon the
glass above the door where the gas may
shine upon it and enlighten the inquiring
mind, in the present choatic condition
of numbers, even this expensive reform
would be a boon- I have myself counted
28 King streets, 16 Queen streets, 13
Duke streets in this town. The same
name will repeat itself in street, road,
place, crescent and square, upper and
lower, east and west, until the brain be
gins to soften. We sper.t more shillings

The president has offered to the senate
the following nominations for seats on the
new appellate bench, as provided by sec
tion 1, chapter 51? of the United States
William L. Putnam, of Maine, for the
First Judicial circuit.
Nathaniel Shipman, of Connecticut,
for the Second Judicial circuit.
George M. Dallas, of Pennsylvania, for
the Third Judicial circuit
Nathan GoC of West Virginia, for the
Fourth Judicial circuit.
Willitm M. H. Taft, of Ohio, for the
Sixth Judicial circuit.
William A. Woods, of Indiana, for the
Seventh Judicial circuit.
Warren Truitt. of O egon. United
States district judge for the District of
No appointment for the Fifth, Eighth
and Ninth districts.
All but two of the nominees are repub
licans. Mr. Putnam bi longs to that
school of democracy which Mr. Cleveland
delighted to honor scholarly, conserva
tive and cot free from the suspicion of
mugwumpery. He held a seat on the
fisheries con. mission and acquitted him
self as well ss his oj poriunities permit
ted. Mr. Dallas is a democrat of much
the same quality as Mr. Putnam, though
a more active participant in politics. To
this circumstance he is indebted for the
scarsely veiled hostility of Senator Quay,
which is in its self enough to commend
him to honest men. The remainder are
larrinon and Arthur.
The Si. Louis Republic has ben delv
ing into figures in order to arrive at a
comparison between the totals of receipts
and expenditures for a year under Har
rison and a similar length of time under
Arthur. Here is the result:

These figures are very easy, to under
stand and every citizen ought to give to
the common welfare the little time and
paiLS required for a full understanding
of their significance.

It will be noticed first, tnat the "ex
traordinary expenditures" are in round
numbeis the same f $134,000. U0C) in both
years. These are for the sinking fund
and bond purchases for the redemption
of the national debt. The excess of tbe
total expenditures over total receipts in
Mr. Arthur's year is only $1,299,IK0,
while he kept the current expenses of the
government, $183,000,000. inside the cur
rent receipts for the year. The year
before a surplus had remained over all ex
penditure.ordinary and extraordinary, and
he applied 1 1.299.000 of mis to the ' pay
sue nt cf the national i.ebt. After making
the obligatory purchases for the sinking
fund, he would bad still a surplus of near
ly $100,000 for the year after paying all
expenses of his year's administraiion out
aide of that connected with the redemp
tion of tfle national debt.
Io the Harrison year, with the same
amount applied as debt expenditures as
in the Arthur year and whh receipts much
larger, the total expenditures exceed the

000.00) of the total receipts, and this
without the sinking fund. To meet the
obligations of the sinking fund and pre
vent tt e deficit from appearing, the ad
ministration used $63,000,000 of the trust
fund for the redemption of national batik
notes, hicb the Reed congress turned
into tho general font's of the treasury for
the use to bide the expended deficit.
This was in no sense a part of the sur
plus. Mr. Arthur simply drew on bis
surplus to make a larger debt payment
than wt,s obligatory for the year. Mr.
Harrison spent the whole of the year s
income, exhausted all the surplus of
available cash, and was still short of tne
amount required for the sinking fund, so
that he was obliged to use the national
bank notes redemption fund to meet the
emerget cy created by extravagance.
Republicans did not think mach of
Arthur. They would' not renominate
bim. But what do tbey think of him
now. wten they compare tbe cold figures
of a year of his administrition with a
