A TYPICAL CASE.
Uarrlaon Faath, Clear Maker With Ferdi
nand Ilaak, (ilves Ills Testimony.
Mr. Harrison Fauth, of No. 122
Harrison street, Davenport, a cigar
maker employed at the manufactory
of Ferdinandllaak, No. 1110 and 1112
West Seventh street, says:
"Before I began treatment with
Dr. Stackhouse and his associates, I
had been suffering for two years with
an unusually severe case of catarrh.
I had constant ringing sounds in my
ears and became nearly deaf. Spots
floated before my eyes ami headaches
were incessant. I could sleep scarce
ly at all. It never seemed as though
1 had sleep enough.
The treatment has completely
dispelled these symptoms and left
me enjoying better health than I
have since the beginning of my
trouble over two years ago. The
Stackhouse treatment is pleasant,
mild and agreeable, and as to its cur
ative value, any one who knew me a
few months ago and will look at me
now, can testify."

Let it be p'ainly understood that there will be
no advance in rates at the Stackhonse Medical
Institute daring the term of the absolute guaran
tee above announced. Catarrh and kindred dis
eases successfully treated and medicines fur

diseases always moderate.
DUTIES AND POWERS.
THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITEC
STATES NOT TO BE PITIED.
Tne Authority unci Prerogatives Conferred
I'pon the Executive by the Constitution
Were Dictated by Wisdom Their Exer-
else Cannot lie Called "Petty Details.
The new paper for women called The
American Woman has a department ot
"nonpartisan politics" conducted by Por
tia. In the last number Portia pro3 bib to
Mr. Cleveland her feminine compassion be
cause so much of his time and thought is
employed in the exercise of his constitu
tional preroRative of giving out the federal
offices. Having expressed this kind sympa
thy, she says in conclusion:
"Somehow, as one watches this routine
of national affairs, one is prone to wonder
Just why to the president falls so large a
share of the petty details of the govern
ment's business. It seems such a waste of
time and force."
We will tell Portia why this is so. and
she will see that it is not at all wonderful.
One of the strongest muniments of the
president's office is the power conferred on
him by the constitution to make appoint
ments to office under the federal govern
ment "by and with the advice and consent
of the senate," or of his own notion alone,
la. the cases of "inferior officers," when
such authority is expressly vested in him
by law of congress. The president has no
Other constitutional power more important
to him. lie cannot initiate or forward leg
islation. He can only "recommend" to con
gress "such measures as he shall judge
Becessary and expedient," but he can select
"officers of the United States," subject only
to the approval of the senate.
Consequently this power is one of the
chief safeguards of the authority and dig
nity of the executive office. If it were vest
ed in the legislative branch of the govern
ment solely, the executive branch would
have little actual power left to it. The
president could "grant reprieves and par
dons for offenses against the United States
except In cases of impeachment." With
the concurrence of two-thirds of the senate
he could make treaties, though that puts
the real treaty making power in the senate.
He could "on extraordinary occasions con
vene both houses or either of them" or ad
journ them "in case of disagreement be
tween them with respect to the time of ad
journment," He would have the power
of vetoing a bill of congress, subject,
however, to the authority of two-thirds
of congress to' make it law over his veto.
Be would be the titular "commander in
chief of the army and navy of the United
States and of the militia of the several
states when called into the actual service
of the United States," subject to the sole
authority of congress "to declare war,"
"raise and support armies," "make rules
for the government and regulation ot the
land and naval forces" and "provide for
calling forth the militia to execute the laws
of the Union, suppress insurrections and
repel invasions. "
The great and inalienable powers of the
president under the constitution are there
fore confined to the power of vto, mak
ing his wfll equivalent to that of two-thirds
of congress, the power of negotiating treaties
agreeable to two-thirds of the senate and
the power of selecting officers and agents,
subject to confirmation by the senate. The
most important of these powers tn the prac
tical conduct of an administration is the
last. If congress or the senate had the
Ability to select the officers and put them
on the president against bis will, his ad
ministration would be completely at its
mercy. He would be the mere creature of
the legislative department.-. The executive
would not haveJttidependenoe enough to re
tain the respecof either congress or the
As it is under the constitution, the presi
dent holds his power over congress chiefly
through this prerogative of selection of his
agents. Congress cannot thrust on him
agents he does not want. He picks out his
own agents, and the senate must take or
reject them. The offices being so numer
ous, they accordingly constitute an essen
tial clement of the political strength of the
president. With them in his hands, he can
preserve the equilibrium between the exec
utive and legislative departments of the
government. He can use them as his most
efficient means of influencing congress.
These, Portia, arc the facts, and they ex
plain "why to the president falls so large a
share of the petty details of the govern
ment's business." Hut the selection of of
ficeholders is not a petty detail. It is a
large and important prerogative of the ex
ecutive office. With the exception of it,
the exercise of the right to veto and the
suggestion of treaties to the senate, all the
other business intrusted to the president
consists of petty details. It is chiefly cere
monial, making of him a figurehead only.
With the power to select and "commission
all officers of the United States," ho has
real and positive executive authority, in
trinsic in his office and not conferred by
Of course the process of making the se
lection of so nintiy thousands of otScvrs is,
somewhat laborious, but in fact presidents'
have so small a rane of other duties under
the restrictions of the constitution that
they have ample time for the discharge of
a duty so valuable to their office. It can be
performed and is actually performed by
Mr. Cleveland now during a few hours of
each working day. His ceremonial func
tions aside ami the adjournment of con
gress relieving him from the necessity of
considering and signing bills passed, the
management of the offices is his main busi
ness. Their distribution also brings him
in contact with the most active represent
atives of his party from all parts of the
Union, and thus he is enabled to get a view
of political sentiment of prime importance
to him in his administration.
The recourse of office seekers to him,
moreover, is a tribute to his power which
cannot be ungrateful to the human nature
of a president. It is necessary, too, that
either by direct personal contact or through
information conveyed to him by senators
and representatives the president should
acquaint himself with the quality, qualifi
cations and just cluims of the many thou
sands of individuals he is to appoint as ex
Presidents accordingly do not deserve the
tender sympathy which is so creditable to
Portia's feminine heart. They are . rather
enviable men. They have attained the
highest end to which political ambition
can aspire in this republic Having got
the power from the people, they are glad to
exercise it. It is what they were after.
As compared with the run of active busi
ness men, they are not overtaxed. They do
not work harder than kings and emperors.
