tald that they had exchanged ioVs,imonK

they would concede the Piosident's nhio

Hut the Senate is entitled not only In

right, where iciiiovnls from purul.Vtbtisi
ties olllcc have been made during recess,
the Itcpubllcan Senators will maku eaicfu!
inquiry Into the causes or such removals.
It Is due lo the olllecr mid lo hlsTrlehds
that this should be "done. When a m.iii
has Iet his private business and accepto I
an appointment, under thu Government,
he lias alight to expect to retain the of
fice, If he attends strictly to its Hilars,' as
long nt least as Congress has repeatedly
expics-sed its opinion as to what a term of
olllee should lie. tluit 1, lour years. Tho
"ollenslve partisanship" question will
undoubtedly be lalsed In 'the Senate. It
will bosomethinfcliko this:
"What has the person removed done to
make him on oll'unsivc partisan V Jim ho
done more than to exercise hisrightsaiau
American citizen?"
If these iiiicMiouo are answered by the
statement that he hasactcd mi Hcptlhtlcaii
committees and been largely iustruiiK'iit.il
in keeping thcHcpulillean party in power,
then questions will be asked and investi
gation made concerning the man who has
been appointed In his place. Has Ac acted
as the chairman of Democratic commit
tees, and has Itv been an otl'cush e partisan
on the Democratic side thu same as the
man removed bus been on the Republi
can? If tho Senate llnds this statu of
things to exist they will probably refuse
to (onllrui, Tbeie will be no antagonism
except in cases of this kind, but then
there may be.
