It narrows the choice of the republi

dates, Mayor McConochie and Aid.
W. F. Schroeder. Of the latter, who
is wearing himself out trying to get
the nomination, it says he is prompt
ed by a laudable ambition. As to the
mayor, it remarks that he' having
served four years, is delicate about
asking another term, but that he is
willing to run if pressed to do so. In
conclusion the Union asserts: "The
choice may be either there is plenty
of time for other candidates to be con
sidered but the Union thinks so
highly of these gentlemen that it has
no anxiety as to a larger field to choose
The vheekiest thing ever known in
political circles has been undertaken
by the republican chiefs of division in
the government departments at
Washington. They have prepared a
petition addressed to President Cleve
land asking him to retain them in of-
lice by extending the civil service'
rules to the positions they hold, and
are now trying to obtain the signa
tures of clerks in the classified ser
vice thereto. Just why any clerk
should sign it is more than anyone
can understtnd. The republican
clerks should be well satisfied if they
are allowed to retain their own
places, without trying to retain their
republican chiefs; and there is cer
tainly no good reason why any dem
ocratic clerk there are not over
many of them in office anyway
should be willing to sign anv such an
absurd'petition. It is on a par with
Mr. Wells' civil service orders and

"Your liberty? In what way?"
"Why, up tDwn I was ordered to

"Aud you refused?"
"Naturally. My wife said she would
