When matters of moment are stir
ring within the councils of either po
litical party, the Union may be,
counted upon as the last to know
about it, if indeed it hears of such
conditions at all. Hut when wild,
irresponsible rumors get afloat one
may wager that in a week's time at
least, the morning paper will hear of
them and forthwith thev may be ex-
peeted in print in that, publication
without previous investigation or
verilication. The Union is great at
jumping at conclusions. It would a
great deal rather publish an irre
sponsible rumor just as it hears it
than to go to the trouble of ascer
taining facts. It is a much easier
way of doing to lie sure, much less
fatiguing, requiring less exertion
than the search after the truth, es
pecially at this time of t he year when
people are affected to a more or less
degree bv "that tired feeling"' sup
hile the readers of the morning
paper are accustomed to a disposi
tion of this sort on the part, of the
paper which is supposed to furnish
the news rather than delusions, there
ire times when the deception and
nonsense is carried to sucn an ex
tent as to warrant a statement of
the facts so recklessly sidetracked by
the Union to make way for its yarns.
Yesterday morning it took advant
age of the brief absence of the editor
of Tiik Ai:;rs from the city on a
pleasure trip, to peddle out a pack
of trash about the postollice. Ac
cording to the morning paper, the
editor of Tiik Anurs had gone to
Washington to have Postmaster
Wells removed for offensive parti-
mshi p. a charge having been pre
viously made to l lie posioiuce
nartmi-nt to that effect, accord in
the Union, bv Congressman ( able.
Wi-llsnu Civil Si-ri !'.
After devoting what ought to be
aluable space to Mil IT and nonsense
f the character indicated, the Union
makes this concluding paragraph:
Mr. Wells has not been an "olTen
ive paitisan" since the civil service
illes were extended to Hock Islan
He at once conformed to them in
"ood faith and no complaint can be
made against him on that score. If

one is mane it win n:ie m jo h;h k
to tiie presidential contest. lie has
been very ill for months, and at pres-
ii t lias leave of absence from the de
part ment on account ot sickness.
And this is too utterly ridiculous
to le passed without soniemiiig more
than mere reference. That Mr. Wells
hould be excluded from the charge
if offensive partisanship because he
ias complied with the civil service
rules Miiee lliev were exieimeu 10
Kock Island and has behaved himself
since the presidential contest ended
. . i i i t i.i : .
as the l nmn iionis. is nigiiiv consis
tent, isn't it'.' As well say that Mr.
Wells went into the olliee in" the first
place under the civil service regula
tions. Iieeaiise he has been iiuiet
ince the close of the presidential
contest is due to two reasons, one lie-
ni se there were no more presiden
tial contests to take part in, and the
it her because he has been too indis
oscd for the active service such as
he is accustomed to in political t imes,-
although he did get out of a sick
bed on the dav of the recent city
lection and the day previous and do
what he could for the republican can-
late for mayor, by driving about
from one part of theeitvto another
ind urging his partisan, friends to
stand by the republican nominee.
However, there is no disposition to
take advantage of Mr. ells in his
affliction. On the other hand demo
crats, in consideration of his illness,
have withheld the general protest
that would otherwise have been made
against Ins continuance in control oi
tiTe postollice. No one in Uock Isl-
ind has been more offensive in his
partisanship than Mr. wens, none
will deny that, and considering the
injustice done the democratic party
in the wav in which he received the
oflice one may will imagine the
course he would have pursued under
As far as the Union's report goes
about any recent trips to Washing
ton on behalf of the postollice, it is
as inconsistent with the spirit of
truth anI fairness as the course us
ually characteristic of that paper.
