PLUCKING VANDERBILT. An Eiatern j airnil has been trying to show that Vanderbilt his lately been vic timized and ti -ji.ee I by combinations of shrewd men who bailt linea of railroad parallel to bis roads, and ti.cn farced him , to buy the new roads at extravsgaa: prices. If this story is true, it ought to have a good deal of significance for the claea of writers who are co fond of aflirming that there are no means of bringing the railroad magnates to terms, for it would seem that in this case there was no ditllculty in actu ally plundering one of the moat powerful, if not the most powerful, of all the rail road princes in the country, and that he was actually helpless. In fist the rational conclusion to ba drawn from such a story it that the more railroads a man or a oom> paoy owns, the greater must be its danger of ju<,t such combinations ; and that bo far is it from being true tbat no remedy against " monopoly " exists, that the great railroad managers are peculiarly exposed to these raids, and can in fact be brought to term 3 by them unfailingly. Of course no genuine ntlroad bailder* will resort to reoh josth ods, which partake more of the eLhk o! Wall street than of commercial enterpifec. But in business there it in these days \iry little stable principle, and in the cirdei where speculation rules, cone at all. So that it is quite possible the new mod o: railroad bniidicg illustrated in the " Ni.4e] Plate" line, may become dangero tsly common eventually ; in which case he Tanderbilta will certainly stand mor > in Et>od vi protection than the public has urer done. THE SHIP SUBSIDY BUSINESS. The New York Evening Post points #v*. that one of the inevitable const queued, of the adoption of the TariiT Commission rec ommendations for a subsidy in aid of chi,.. building wiil be the destruction of Ihe wooden ship-building interest. We (re sume that John Uoach docs not care a'Kut that, bat Congress ought to reflect befcre it increases the present muddle while fre tending to introduce reforms. The pro posal of the Tariff Commission is onk- a revampiog of the stale pretenses wfcch have been put forward so macy year* iby that prince of bubaidy becgara, John Kcte'j. The only possible effect of giving suba iits or bonnties for the building of ships, with out at the umc lime reducing or abolishing the tariff, wjuU by to enrich a few firms of builders at the expense of the whole p:o --p'.e. Commerce could not possibly be helped in that way, for it is useless to build ships for a foreign trade which the tariff prohibits iha extension of. The tiuth is that tb ; ship-snbsidy plan is a radically fraudulent one, and that if Can. gresc luteus to i! the party that is reir>on> 6ible will be pnuuhed by the people for its stupidity and perversity, at the first op portunity.

The debates in the United States on re f jrm of the Civil Service have brought out Eome damaging declarations from Demo crats. Senator Voorheea made a epeech t le other day which may well render more sagacious members cf hia party uncom fortable, and the more especiai'.y since there is the best reason for believing that the views he expressed are really those which the Democracy is most likely to act upon. He sneered at the proposition for com petitive examinations and permanent tenure, employing the stile device of ridiculing tho eximination papers. He Bought to create the expression that he was nevertheless desirous cf reform, but that hs wanted it to be begun among the higher olnsials. His positions, however, were in no respect consistent with one another, for having contended that there was no need for reform as regards the minor effices, ask ing, " Who had ever heard of any scandtls "occurring among the lower grade of "clerk*?"— he went on to express the opinion that "if tht Democratic party "should come into power it ought to " purify the asrvicj by miking a thorough "and radical change of officeholders. '' That is doubtless the ordinary Democratic doctrine. A thorough and radical change of otiiceholders ; a substitution of Demo crats for Republicans in every office : is the measure of Democratic reform as understood by the majority of the party. Senator Voorheea is not politic, but he i ; at least candid in the expression of hi* opinions. He bsiieves that to the victors belong the spoils, and he has' the profound contempt of the veteran politician for the new ideas of reform and non-partisan oltijial service. Senator Sherman made a Fpeech oa the same day which forms cv agreeable con trast to that of Mr. Voorhe-e?. Senator Sherman has been at the head of a depart ment, and therefore he knows from per sonal experience the vices and defects of the spoils system. And thus Bpeaking from personal experience he declared that he favored three charges in the civil service : " First, the taking away of the power to "select employes by favoritism, and the " passage of a law that admission to the " service should be secured by competitive " examinations open to all. Second, the " prohibition of removals except for cause. "Third, the prohibition of political assess " ments, without interfering with tLe right "of officials to contribute voluntarily for " legitimate political purposes." And it is apparent that these three changes would result in a complete and lasting reform, not merely of tho civil servioe, but of existing political methods. S.-nator Sher man if of opinion that "removals with "out cause would be very rarely made if "the pressure of Senators and Rcprcsenta " tivo for appointments in the executive "departments waa stopped." There can be no doubt that this is true. So lnnp as Senators and Representatives retain the power of compelling appointments, they themselves will be unable to resist the pressure put upon them from without, nor an they be expected to refrain from mak ing the utmos' use of the great power which the patronage puts in thtir bands, f course also tha evil of making appoint ments without cause is quite as great as that o! making removes without cjuse. While the departments are allowtd to be a ipjc'irs of political bank upon which Sen itors and Rspresentatives can draw for ands wlierewith to prosecute their per onal schemes of ambition, it is unreascn ble to expect that this bank will net be Hade use of. The only way to abolish the abuses of he civil service is to take away the pat on»ge from Congress completely. And it is ot enough to establish competitive exam l&tiona if that power is allowed to exist, ir in tliH case the examinations will be vaded or made a mere farce of, and tho poils system will tLurish under the shsl ;r of sham reform. But if the Senators nd Representatives are absolutely proliib fld from making any recommendation? for mploynnent, and if at the Eame tim? ex minations are established, and if then re iovil without cause ba put an end to, the roblem will be solved. Nor is there any other or less radical way to solve it. Con gress must be campelled to keep its hinds off the departments, and the ouly way to do that is to abolish patronage altogether. Then every man who spends time or money in assisting candidates for Congress will know that he cannot bi paid in effioea, and every candidate will at once be re lieved from the intolerable embarra-smsnt of pledges and promises not one-third of which ever are or can be redeemed. Of course it is a very hard thing for any Con gress to bring itßelf to such work of thorough-going reform ; but perhaps the ltepublicans in the present Congress aro in a better position as regards this matter than ever before. For many of them are about to retire from public life, at ljast for a time, and therefore they have no personal interests to keep them from doing right. Meantime it is apparent that the Ameri can psople will insist upon te raiical a reform as Senator Sherman has outlined, and that if the present Con?res3 fails tc introduce it, acd the Democrats next yesr cannot bring themselves to it, the Demo cratic party will ba repudiated in ISB4, This certainty is seen clearly enough by the more intelligent and unselfish among , the Democrats, and therefore tbey deplore aad deprecate such foolish snd dangerous speeches as that made by Veorheca last .Saturday. But it has always been the bane of the Democratic party that its better elements cannot control it. All they can do is to paint cut the way it I choald go but will cot, unl in doiDg tt.is i they only empha^iza the contrast between it* r.reecpt and practice. Purifying the service by turning oat every Republican and puttizg in Democrats, is the central j and favorite idea of the avenge D.mo cratic politician, and it i • very grcit!y to be doubted whether the hunger for spoils I will not, when the time comes, upset anl overwhelm every other consideration. As to the present motives of ths Repub licans in urging reform, ihey cut no lijar* in ths ca?c. It is doubtless true that the November elections hava had a very quickening effect upon these reform i.v. pnlses, but when tha country comes to balance the merits and demerits of the two parties, it will assuredly accorl D-aise to the organization which made a serious effort to introduce these changes, and it will as certainly blams the orgaaizitioa which appears to be doing its bsat to pre vent the reforms demanded. The Denu.. crits in fact cannot afford to folio* Senstcr Ycorheea ia this matter, aad because of their own frailty they cannot afford to ! appear ta be opposed to Republi-j&n eff.Tta at reform, seeing that if they themselves had the Government altogether in their , hands they would in all probability prove ] incapable of effecting any chang»3 bat ! those which tLe Indiana Secs'or has recommended. It ia a hard trial for them, ; no doubt, but the test is a cru.ial one, and : it U c perfectly safe preiictica fa it if tc?y I permit themselves to go on record aa hostile to reform of the civil service, they will by so doing make a Kepablican Prea: dent in ISS4.
