Chester A. Arthur retires from the
Presidential chair with the verdict of the
country in hi- favor. His administration
lias not been marked by great contention,
or notable activity. Hut these are the best
evidences of good administration of public
affairs. It is by no means to be assumed
that because quiet prevails, the official
head of the CJovernment is spiritless. One
of the errors into which many people fell
regarding the Hayes' administration was to
estimate it as of little character, because it
had not agitated the nation by momentous
schemes. That it was undisturbed by the
waves of great activity test i lied simply to
non-necessity for agitati m, and the
prosperity and e-ontent of the nation.

first great cycle of it- existence. That

necessity and in time to rescue the nation

had placed tin- L'nioi\ at the mercy of fac
tions, and staked it- destiny upon the
maintenance of human slavery masked 1 <■-
hind a seeming of defense in the form o^
the extreme doctrine of .States rights. The
Republican party maintained a policy of
unionism, and by its persistence cemented
the bonds ol union iiulissolublv, and estab
lished tuc great doctrine a., a dogma of
the republic beyond dispute, that
there is no right of secession. It seated
two Presidents who fell the victims of as
sassination, and safely tided the country
over tie- troubh-d waters of those tragic |
events. To quote a recent observant for

war against secesiion, liberated millions of

These are the words of wisdom: That.
they do not represent practical action by
the people, is one of the profoundest causes
for alarm regarding the stability of our
form of government. The people certainly
do neglect those primal duties in " poli
tics," the performance of which is the only
assurance of liberty. We give over to the
boss and the political thimble-rigger the
control of the machinery of party, and per
mit them to farm out public offices for
their personal profit, and to trade off
the voters of the country as so many cat
tle. The disposition to shirk political
duty and responsibility is growing, and
with it all the evils inseparable from such
a state of public sentiment. It is only
upon great occasions, when political knav
ery revolts the public stomach, that
paroxysms of duty seiz" us, and political
revolutions stir as to our depths, only to
leave us to degenerate again into weak
consent to worse abuses than gave cause
Mr the public rising in the first instance.
If Mr. Cleveland can arouse the people
during his incumbency to a full sense of
their inactivity and all but criminal
neglect in this regard, he will deserve to
be numbered among the foremost of all
men. lint we have small hope of such
result. It is to-day counted in the schemes
of neither Republican nor Democratic
taskmakers to permit the control of party
machinery to be resumed by the mass of
the voting element.
Our evening contemporary, referring to
the passage of the Act to make the licens
ing of gambling a misdemeanor, says
Messrs. Davis and Jones, of this county,
voted for the measure, and adds:
Messrs. Davis and Jones have defied the pop
ular will, and, if they ever ask favors again nt
tin- hands of mi outraged constituency, this
shouid he remembe'ed against them, mid to
their sorrow. There would be no sense in the
voters Mitin;,' as judges it they never passed sen
tence of excommunication upon derelict offi
cials. What their reasons were !<t acting »s
they did. they probably best know themselves.
If these representatives have defied the
popular will, hut which we deny, they have
simply given proof of their courage. A
representative is not elected to office t" do
servile duty, lie is placed in the legisla
tive chair to exercise the best judgment of
which his intelligence is capable as to
what is and what is not wise to enact into
law. He should hear his constituents, and
weigh their requests, but there is no obli
gation that requires him to subordi
nate his self-respect, and rim coun
ter to his honest convictions of
what is right. He is the representative
not only of the immediate section that sent
him, but of all the people. Hi is hound
to fealty to the Constitution and the laws,
before he is held to respond to the wishes
(if any particular part of the people. The
two men criticised probably had a lively
M':i-r of the obligations assumed when
tiny took oath, to support the Constitution
and the laws. With what grace tan any
man so sworn return to a people and con
fess that he refused to vote for an Act to
enforce respect for the laws ? Had Davis
and .Junes voted otherwise than they did.
they would have " defied " the laws and
outraged the - >nse of right and honest ac
tion. Then' arc no two sides to the ques
tion ; it id all one-sided, and that .-'.!■ ■-

The Extra of the Senate.
Washington, March sth. — The public
galleries of the Senate were again to-day
crowded to their utmost limits. ;l iul long
before noon a crowd gathered about every
door-keeper seeking in vain for admission.
The Senate dock, which Captain Basseti
with his cane set back ten minutes yester
day, had recovered the lost time. Promptly
at"l 2 o'clock the Vice-President entered
from the door on the left of the presidential
desk, accompanied by Rev. Dr. Butler,.
pastor of the Lutheran Memorial Church,
of this city. Thegalleries applauded Ilcn
d ricks, which manifestation its recipient
abruptly terminated with the gavel. The
Senators arose ai this summons, and Rev.
Dr. Butler offered prayer. Upon its con
clusion the Vice-President took the chair.
and was again greeted with plaudits by the
occi pants of thegalleries. He called the
Senate to order, and in a voice only audible
to the Clerks called for tin: reading of the
Journal. The Journal having been read,
Allison. Beck and Voorhies, the committee
yesterday appointed to wait ontbePresi
dentof the united States and inform him
that a quorum oi the Senate was present
and ready to receive any cominanicatiou
that he rnighf desire t" make, repor.ed that
they had performed their duty, and the
President bad responded thai he would
communicate with the Senate forthwith,
and in less than a minute there was an
nounced a message from the President of
the United States.
Sherman at once moved that the Senate
proceed to the consideration of executive
business. The motion was unanimously
agreed to, and the Senate went into execu
tive session, and when the doors reopened
adjourned till to-moixow.
President Cleveland (his morning sent to
the Senate the following nomination - :
Secretary oi State— Thomas F. Bayard,
of i Delaware.
Secretary of the Treasury— Daniel Man
ning, of New York.
Secretary "I War — William C. Etidicott,
of Massachusetts.
Secretary of the Nayy — William C. Whit

Secretary ol the Interior— l.. Q.C. Laniar,
of Mississippi.

of Wisconsin.

When the Cabinet nominations wen
taken up in executive pession, Riddlebcrger
objected t f » the immediate consideration of
Bayard. He stated, briefly, that he did so
because of Bayard's attitude upon the Irish
question. Riddleberger thought him more
English than American.

rules of the Senate, for a day.

biudlkberoer's objections.
After the nominations of the rneinbi rs oi
President Cleveland's Cabinet were re
ceived, the Senate went into executive si s
sion and remained about fifteen minutes,
when a motion to adjourn was made and
carried. It has been [he custom to confirm
Senators appointed !■> any office by the
President without ref< reuce t:i a commit
tee, and ii was confidently expected thai
Senators Larnar, Bayard and Garland
would be confirmed before the Senate ad
journed. Senator Riddlcberger, of Yir
-mi.i, however, who has some case oi
grievances against Mr. Bayard, objected to
the latter s confirmation on the ground
that iie was un-American, and has es
poused the cause of (he English against
the Irish people. Riddleberger's speech
against Mr. Bayard disgusted the Republi
cans as well as the Democrats. But be in
sisted upon n :■ rence of the nomination to
the Committee on Foreign Relations, and
under the ntli sthis had to be done. While
be made no objection to either Garland or
I.amir. the senate would not confirm
either nomination in advance of that of
Mr. Bayard's. After the adjournment of
the Si nate both parties held a caucus.
Tlie »»' ( abinet Considered in !)ct;iii.
Washington, March stli. The Cabinet
was made public to-day by the President,
who sent the names of its members to the
Senate for confirmation! It was the Cabinet
predicted in these dispatches several days
ago. Bayard goes to the head of the State
Department, and ii" will be premier of the
new administration. The nomination is
personally unobjectionable. It will give
character and tone to the administration.
The Delaware Senator, however, is not well
acquainted with the foreign relations of
the. United States, and he will have a task
of no mean magnitude to thoroughly mas
ter the questions now pending in the State
Department. During the recent debute on
the Nicaragua!) Canal treaty, Bayard main
tained that the Clayton-Bulwer treaty,
which England has repeatedly vio
lated, has a bin ling force upon the
United States. When Bayard opposed
the ratification of the Nicaragua!)
treaty, his colleagues could not tell
whether he represented the- views of Cleve
land or not. They now believe he did, and
that the Nicaragua treaty in its present
shape will never be ratified. Manning, the
j new Secretary of the Treasury, must earn
his spurs as a financier. He is an able,
conservative man. and has a practical
knowledge of financial and com men at
fairs. The choice <>! Whitney, Vilas and
Garland is praised by all anti-Tilden men,
whose numbers are large and respected.
Many condemn the selection of Whitney,
but it is not so much because he is
ignorant of naval affairs as for the
reason that he is the second man from
New York in the Cabinet. La mar and
Etidicott are in some sense experiments.
Their mental abilities, integrity and high
personal standing are conceded by all, but
they arc said to be indolent, and lacking in
executive capacity. The Secretary of War,
in time of peace, is never overworked. In
the Interior Department, T.amar must
prove himself capable of series for the
ison that In: is the second man from
j\v York in the Cabinet. La mar and

on the man who is appointed Assistant
Secretary of the Interior. A diligent, in
telligent &nd expert worker in this oflici
ian UO wonders. It is reported to day thai
ex-Senator Jonas, of Louisiana wants
to be . mar's right-hand man in the Interior
Department, but there is no probability of
bis appointment. Latnur will undoubtedly
be allowed to name bis assistant, and the
I man, whoever he may be, will probably be
chosen with especial reference to his fitness
for laborious executive v...: For Assist-
I ;mt. Secretary the Treasury, in place of
French, whose decisions in the customs
cases have endeared him to the hearts of
all importers, Charles F. Pairchild, of Al
bany, is said to lie booked. French will
probably go soon, while there is a likeli
hood that the other assistant. Coon, will be
retained for s >rae time. The name of
Judge Thurman is mentioned for the Brit
ish mission.' but it is doubtful if he would
accept it. 'uator I'rndleton's name is
frequently mentioned lor Minister to
France, and General Midellan is spoken
of for either the German or Russian Minis
try. Ex-Senator iStoekton, of New Jersey,
will undoubtedly receive a good appoint
ment in either tlie foreign or domestic ser
vice. For the offieo oi Commissioner of
Pensions, ex-Congressman Bagley, of New
York, and John C Black, of Illinois, are
leading candidates. Friends of Congress-;
man L'ttil. Thomson, of Kentucky, hope
that be will gel the Coinmissionership of
Internal llevenue, and ex-Congressman
Money, of Mississippi, would accept the

if it should be tendered him.
" Tin- Day After the Fair.",
Washington. March — Thirty thou
sand people, who came here to attend the
inauguration, •- it Washington before day
light this morning. All day long, however,
the streets have been crowded with
strangers, and the throngs in the public
buildings have seriously interfered with
public business. Detachments of soldiers,
civic clubs and different political organiza
tions have paraded the streets all day, and
hardly a man of national prominence in
the capital has escaped a serenade. Work
-1 men have been busy all day in tearing
doirn the grand stands and re
moving the decorations put up along
the avenues for yesterday's cere
monies. Groups of laborers were busy
all the forenoon in cleaning the streets
through which the procession passed; and
to-night the capital bids fair to assume" its
natural air of respectable and BomewhaC
dignified quiet. The people living here '
■ ■■ ■- .■•:-"..:>.:■,- •-;>; -.■.-■■ I
will ■welcome rest. For forty-eight hours
there baa been one continual hubbub of ex
citement, noise ami tumult. Bands -have
played through the streets at all hours of j
the day and night ; men unable to find ac- |
commodations have paced wearily over the !
pavements in search of food and rest ; bar- !
rooms have been crowded day and night by '•
men who are hungry for an office and very
thirsty on general principles. Order is j
gradually coming out of chaos, and the new !
I Administration, having had a breathing
j spell, will soon begin its promised work of
administrative reform. The resignations of
nearly all the foreign ministers .have:
cither been received or are "ii their way to
the State Department, and their fat places,
together with assistant secretaries of the
different departments (who will resign as
.soon as the new heads of the departments
are confirmed by the Senate), will make
enough vacancies to give the President a
chance to reward personal or political
friends for services rendered.
Tress Comments on the Inaugural Art
Nkw Yi'iiK, March sth. — The Evening
Post and the Commercial Bulletin are the
only papers here containing inaugural ex
pressions: Regarding servile immigration,
the Post says the encouragement thus given
to the anti-Chinese craze mars the effect of
the address. The Bulletin says he might
with advantage have omitted the commit
ment of the anti-foreign cheap labor cru
sade. With this exception the document
is one that may pass without criticism.
Boston, March 'Ah. The Transcript*
criticism of the inaugural is thoroughly
Bostonish. It says it is the production of
an alert, well-poised, strong brain, matured
in the best schools of rhetoric. Its utter
ances are instinct with thought verified by
an intellectual energy rarely discoverable
in official compositions. In its compact
ness, .-win;.', and the rhythm of its periods
and clear discussion of topics touched, it
worthily ranks with the most celebrated of
similar American productions.
Philadelphia, March sth. — /Vf.--.<
says: On minor questions i; is evasive, or
stultified by practical acts, while its tone is
elevated and admirable. The country
must still wait to sec what Cleveland will
do in order to determine what his admin
istration will be.
The President iiml Ofiice-Seekers.
Washington, March sth. — Cleveland has
decided not to make engagements with
anybody for interviews in relation to ap
pointments, lie has determined to rely, so
far as possible, upon the heads of the De
partments for advice in these matters, and
all communications, petitions and paners
relating to office received at the White
House will be referred, without indorse
ment, to the proper Department. By this
means the President expects to be relieved
of the troublesome and time-consuming
business of distributing patronage, and will
be left free to consider important public,
questions that are constantly arising in the
Executive Department.
(Jenoral Grant's Disease. ■
New York, March sth.— The Medical
Record will say to-morrow : In view of the
recent developments in General Grant's
condition, the Record's bulletin of two
weeks ago, so largely quoted by the press
of the country, requires some explanation.
It is fair to state that the facts at the time
presented by the Midi,':/ Record were
founded on the best authority, that of Dr.
Fordyce Barker, the attending physician of
General Grant, and this explanation is
manifest in the following note:
•_•! East Twenty-eighth Steeet.
Dtar Dr. Shrady: The statement which I
made you was literally true at the time l made
it, and 1 am certain Dr. Douglas would have
then made precisely the same, [saw Dr. Doug
la.- last evening, ami he then said that what 1
had told you wan exactly what he should have
said at the time, but Monday, after I saw you,
the fiction of Congress bad ii most depressing
effect on General urant. His vital powers sud
denly broke down, and the local malady speedily
assumed a new aspect. The newspaper ac
counts have been greatly exaggerated, and we
have never anticipated any such speedy ter
mination as they have indicated. Ido not be
lieve Dr. Douglass ever used the word cancer in
connection with the case. We have always
spoken of ii as eplthelioina, of a malignant
type probably. It was greatly improved fora
time by the local treatment of Dr. Douglas, r.nd
the local condition was manifestly improving
until the mural shock broke down his general
stein. Ever faithfully,
Fordvce Barker.
Wednesday noon. March ■). l-.^.'..
It is a matter of deep regret, that the
grave suspicions entertained of the serious
nature of General Grant':: disease are con
firmed by a diognosis of epithelioma of the
tongue and face. This disease, the name
of which i- now perhaps heard '^/f the
general public for the first linie.^Eunics
an importance as a study which it could
never otherwise obtain. Consequently the
daily papers are educating the people. with
regard to it, so that the terms c pithelioiua,
malignancy and infilitration will be as
well understood as in former times were
those of suppuration, pus track and bullet
cysts. As might have been anticipated
under the circumstances, the published re
ports of the General's condition were very
much exaggerated. The disease is by no
means a- extensive as is generally believed.
In fact the ulcerations, small in extent, are.
limited to the right pillars of the fauces
anterior, one being perforated at its base.
Adjoining the right side root of the tongue
is indurated to a slight extent, as i- also
the iTjighboring gland under the angle of
the jaw on the right side of the neck. The
roof of the mouth, along the line of the
bard palate, and to the right of the medium
line, contains three ■■mill, warty-like ex
crescences, which show a tendency toward
cell proliferation. The epiglottis i- free
from any abnormality, as are all
the other "parts of the throat. Although
induration of the tongue has existed
more or less since last fall, when the pa
tient was seen by Dr. Douglas, the ulcera
lions have appeared quite recently. It was
during their progress that the General suf-
red from pain in the right ear, which has
now been entirely relieved by a local ap
plication of four per cent, of solution of
coacine. Under the same treatment all the
pain in deglutition is now entirely con
trolled, and the patient kept in a very com
fortable '■•ate. The pulse, which is nor
mally sixty per minute, occasionally
reaches eighty beats. The bodily tempera
ture is normal, the appetite fair, which is
saying everything in its favor, as the Gen
eral i- not a hearty cater. His bodily con
dition i.--, however, much below par, and is
more to be considered at present than the
local disease. The treatment of the case
In been judiciously conservative from the
start. Fluid extract of coca is administered
internally, and iodoforru is dusted upon the
ulccralions. Contrary to the general im
pression, the tongue itself is not ulcerated,
nor has it been, as far as we can learn, at
any time during the progress of she dis
ease. The troublesome tooth said to have
been extracted for the relief of the lingual
ration, was on the opposite or sound
side of the mouth, and was removed to re
lieve the persistent ache of the It ft ear.

Blalne'H Xearnesa to the Catholic Cliurrli.
Baltimore, March sth. — Yesterday, after
the funeral of Mrs. Walker, Bluinc met
Father Clarke, of the Society of Jesus. The
meeting was very cordial. During the war
Major Walker's family, of which Blainc's
mother was a member, lived here, and
Father Clarke was their spiritual adviser.
He often spoke with them of the baptism
ami continuation of Mr. Blame. Molding
liiaine by the bund, alter some conversa
tion, Father Clarke said: " Your sister
had a strong belief that you would on( day
return to the fold of the Catholic Church,
the one universal apostolic church.
Stranger things have happened. A few
months ago you looked forward, no doubt,
tim very different scene from that which
you have just felt, but, my dear Mr. Blame,
it is better for a man to go to the house of
mourning than to the house of feasting."
The above incident is exciting much com
ment, in connection with the pathetic
scene at the bedside of his dying sister, on
Tuesday, when taking her hand Blame
said : "Sister, you do not know how much
I love you." " Yes, I do," she whispered,
with a last (lash of interest in this life, " ;..
much as 1 love you."

• PiTTSBtFEO, March sth. — This evening
Frank Kunkle, a teamster, living in Grant
alley, Allegheny City, placed on the stove
to boil a mixture of turpentine, tar and
linseed oil. which he had been told would
cure his horse of lameness. In the room at
the time, besides kunkel. was his daughter
Carrie, aged 7 years, a son aged 5 years,
Julia Walters, 13 years old, and a young
man named Dipp. The mixture had been
on the stove probably an hour when it
boiled over. Instantly it ignited, and a
second afterwards an explosion occurred,
which scattered the scalding liquid and
flames in all directions. Young Dipp.with
great presence of mind, grabbed up the can
with the burning mixture ami start
ed for the door, while Kunkle ran
to the rescue of the children,
whose clothes were a mass of (lames.
One by one he picked them up and threw
them out of the window into the yard, and
then jumping after them, tore the clothes
from their bodies. Assistance arrived by
this time, and the tire having been extin
guished the little sufferers were carried
back to the house. Annie was burned to a
crisp, and died in a short time in great ag
ony. Julia Walters was also terribly
burned, the flesh peeling off her arms and
legs. She is. still living, and suffering in
tensely. A slight hope, however, is enter
tained of her recovery. The little boy was
badly burned about the face and anus, but
will recover. Young Dipp had the flesh
burned off his hands and arms, and Kun
kle is painfully but not seriously injured.

Management of the Metropolitan Theater
1_ Theater for nearly 17 years, ami i thiuk
tliis is the first time I have ever permitted my
signature to be affixed to a card regarding any
controversy arising out of anything happening
in this Theater. 1 have, and especially ttcently,
puttered a great deal of misrepresentation, vili •
Bca'ii ii and abuse, bet have preferred to pass it
by and trust to the public to understand the mo-
tive of it. I believe it does understood, for my
business has Keen better ever since these attacks
began; in which I have been charged with about
every crime except murder, ! rented the Pnea-
tor complete, with gas and all attaches paid, to
Mr. "A." Sauborn, lor the production "I the
Cantata of " Esther." ! consider* Mr. stonborn .1
gentleman. The <■• tract was for ?t.'>
per night, for three nights, being less than the
usual charges. I did this notwithstanding I
lost 3300 by this company not tilling a regular
week which they formerly engaged for under
the management of .Mr. Sanborns predecessor
I did not lind any fault at this, however, but
signed a contract to forego any and all clam
against the former management, except a small
sum fur costs of rehearsal lit the Theater.
On Monday evening i received $02 50, on Tues-
day evening] received ~7.">. and oil Wednesday
noon 1 received i\l ■"■■'. Now, 1 was informed
by 'he Amateurs' box clerk that I would receive
the balance of the rent as soon us it came in.- I
wrote a contract, which I asked Dr. Pinkbam to
sign, for him to become security for the rent.
He refused to sign it. 1 then began to think Unit
everything was not all right, and I instructed
the theater treasurer to collect the rent before
the third act of the performance, He went to
the box office at 8 o'clock, 8:3 1 and at '.'. and was
informed -.hat there was not enough money to
to pay it, although the house was lull
Being compelled to leave at that time
1 instructed the theater treasurer that
he must collect his rent. He then
informed the stage carpenter that unless the
rent was paid not to let the curtain go up. I
have had enough experience in this business to
know that it is necessary to gel your rent before
the engagement of a company is over. Bo much
for that. lam compelled to pay my rent in ad-
vance. It is the custom to have good security
or the rent of all companies in advance also. i
desire to state, however, that this theater owes
no man, woman or child .1 single penny. I
have always endeavored to manage this theater
on business principles. pay i'..r what I get— and
get paid for the theater when it is occupied.
he Metropolitan Theater gets more companies,
and good ones, than any city of its size in, the
United States, notwithstanding the theater-
going public is small here. While other mana-
gers are failing north, east, south and west, 1
can state that this has been the most prosperous
season in many years with the Metropolitan.
Whether this is due to good management, or
good luck, or to much abuse to the lassee,
1 will leave the public to decide. I
desire the good will ot toe liberal theater-goers
of this city, and shall endeavor as far as I can
to merit their approbation. But when any
company occupies this theater I shall expect
what is coming to me and nothing more. Some
people say 1 am unpopular. The idea
is industriously talked up by some
who want to go into the theater as
deadheads. This class became so large and so
Urnoying thai I was compelled to cancel the
passes, as companies found a great deal of fault
with the enormous deadhead list at the Theater.
01 course, those people arc always condemning
I me, and others take it up, not thinking 01 this
origin of it. The class I speak of would like to
see a change oi management, thinking a new
Manager might once mow recognize their
1 unjust claims. As for the abuse of myself by
the evening paper. I pass it with contempt as
unworthy of my notice. Regarding UUbenUity
to the "■ Esther" amateur.*, they made no com-
plaint, and I offered tnem the house for next
Monday night for their benefit at Si > off, and I
they accepted it and thought it liberal, l want I
to say once more about this "unpopularity ot j
Simmons," that no one can run a theater in u|
city so Dear to San Francisco and not have lots
of grumbling against him. All managers know |
this and expect it. Again thanking the citizens
of this city for the very liberal patronage al- )
ways accorded to this theater,
I remain respectfully your obedient servant,
mrC-lt Manager Metropolitan Theater.
