PSIIIDENT ARTHUR.
Chester A. Arthur retires f otn the
Presidential chair with the verdict of the
country in hi- favor. Hi. administration
lias not been marked by great contention,
or notable activity. But these are the U'.-t
evidences of good administration of public
affairs. It i- by no means to be assumed
that because quiet prevails, the official
head of the Government 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. Thai i: was undisturbed by the
waves of great activity testified simply to
non-necessity for agilati in, ami the
prosperity and content of the nation.
General Arthur has made a good Presi
dent. He has maintained his party faith
with dignity, but has not been a subservi
ent tool of party, or permitted partisan
claims to intervene between himself and
duly. He will enjoy the distinction of
having been the last President in the un
broken rule of tin- Republican party in the
first great cycle of its existence. That
party came into life at the command of
necessity and in time to rescue the. nation
from the misrule of the Democracy, which
had placed the Union at the mercy of fac
lions, and staked it-, destiny upon the
maintenance of human slavery masked 1 e
hind a seeming of defense in the form o'
the extreme doctrine of .States rights. Th
Republican party maintained a policy of
unionism, and by its persistence cemented
the bonds of union indissolubly, and estab
lished tuc great doctrine as a dogma ol
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 tin- troubled waters of those tragic
events. To quote a recent observant for
eign critic, it successfully waged a mighty
war against secession, liberated millions of
slave*, restored peace and order to a rebel
lious section, contracted a great national
debt and well nigh paid it off, wil*tituted
Bpecie payments " for :.n inflated paj>er
currency, brought up the revenue to an
unprecedented bight, and imposed a tarii
that, which although! it might ultimately
bieed trouble, had brought up manufact
ures to a bulk and value never known be.
fore." No man so suddenly inducted into
oflieeas was President Arthur has filled it
with more credit, or adhered more faith
fully and honestly to the general polisy
that made his party what it is, and which
has given it the courage to fail all otisi-r
--gencit-s. and the ability to prove equal to
them. lie came in!', office with bitter
prejudices existing against him within hi
party; but he outlived them all, and re

These are the words of wisdom. That
they do not represent practical action by
the people, is one of the profoundort causes
for alarm regarding the stability of on
fonu of government. The people certainly
do neglect those primal duties in " poll
til's," 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 ad 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 seize us, and political
revolutions stir us to our depths, only to
leave us to degenerate again into weak
consent to worse abuses than gave cause
for the public rising in the first instance.
It" Mr. Cleveland can arouse the people
during his incumbency to a full sense of
their inactivity and all but criminal
neglect in this regard, lie will deserve to
!c numbered among the foremost of all
men. But 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.
A MATTER OF EIGHT.
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:
Mefsrs. Davis and Jones have defied the pop
ular Will, and, if they ever ask favors again at
the hands of an outraged constituency, tiii^
shouid lie remembe'ed against them, and '."
their sorrow. There would lie no scum* in the
voters sitting as judges it they never passed sen
tence of excommunication upon derelict Mli
ehils. What their reasons were i'>r acting as
they dul, they probably best know themselves.
If these representatives have defied the
popular will, but which we deny, they have
simply given proof of their courage. A
representative is not elected to office to do
servile duty. He is placed in the legisla
tive chair to exercise the best judgment of
which Ills intelligence is capable as to
what is and what is not wise to enact into
law. lie should hear his constituents, and
weigh their requests, but there is no obli
gation that requires him to subordi
nate his self-respect, and run coun
ter to his honest convictions of
what is right. He is the representative
not only of the immediate section thatsent
him, but of all the people. He is bound
to fealty to the ('-institution and the laws.
before he is held to respond to the wishes
of any particular part of the people. The
two men criticised probably had a lively
t.-:i~. ■ >!' ti:.- obligations assumed when
tlj. y took oath to support the ( lonstitution
and the laws. With what grace can 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 .lone- voted otherwise than they did.
they would have "defied" the laws and
outraged the ■ 'nse oi' right and honi st ac
tion. There are no two sides to the .[:i<~
tion; it i- all one-sided, and that side i
respect !<>r the law. Break down that and
the power of the law is gone, and with it
the capacity ol a people for self-govern
ment.
Senator Filcher's bill (No. 22), to
regulate and control the sale, rental and
distribution of appropriated water, has?
with proper ainendm >nts, passed the S n
ate. It remains for the House to act upon
it. Since the power resides in the Legis
lature to declare proj>erty to be a public
use, and the ri^ht to use it a fran 'hise,
and since the doctrine of regulation has be
come the -'-it I'-11 '- 1 doctrine of the country in
all such oases, this bill would appear t-> be
a desirable measure. It declares the ri rht
• it' the people I" reci ive from appropriators
of w.iter the use ol the same :it a fee to be
fixed by representative IxkHch chosen by
the people themselves, so that the net an
imal receipts shall not be less than six nor
more than eighteen per cent, upon the
value of the property. The bill secures
land owners against the exactions of those
who have possessions between them and a
water supply, by giving the owner below
the right t- r ive water over the land
th I shuts him off otherwise from a supply
canal. This one feature is of the highest
importance, and is wli.it the people of tin
foo ilLs an i \ alleys alike ash for. It :-• a
lv iin the in!- rest <.<( the ditch-owner
and the purchaser of water alike. The

The Extra Session of the Semite.
Washikgton, March sth. — The public
galleries of ti.e Senate were again to-day
crowded to their utmost limits, and long
before noon a crowd gathered about every
door-keeper seeking in vain !'":■ admission.
The Senate clock, which Captain Bassett
with his cane set back ten minutes yester
day, bad recovered the lost time. Promptly
a;'li' o'clock the Vice-President entered
from the door on the left of the presidential
desk, accompanied by Rev. l>r. Butler,
pastor of the Lutheran Memorial Church,
of this city. Thegalleries applauded Hen
(l ricks, which manifestation its recipient
abruptly terminated with the gavel. The
Senators arose ai this summons, and Rev.
Dr. Butler offered prayer. Opon its con
clusion the Vice- President took the chair,
and was again greeted with plaudits by the
occi pants of thegalleries. He railed the
Senate t<> order, and in a voice only audible
io the Clerks called for the reading of the

they had performed their duty, and the
President had responded that he would
communicate with the Senate forthwith,
and in less than n minute there was an
nounced a me.-sage from the President of
the I'nited Slates.
Sherman at once moved that the Senate
proceed i<> th" 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-morrow.
CABINET. SOMISATIONS.
President Cleveland this morning sent to
the Senate the following nominations:
Secretary oi State — Thomas 1". Bayard,
of Delaware.
Secretary of the. Treasury — Daniel Man
ning, of New York.
Secretary of War — William C. Kndicott,
of Massachusetts.
Secretary of the Navy— William C. Whit

Secretary i.i the Interior— l.. '^.C. La mar,
of Mississippi.
Postmaster-General — William F. Vilas,
of Wisconsin.
Attorney-General —A. 11. Garland, of
Arkansas.
When the Cabinel nominations were
taken up in executive session, Riddleberger
objected to 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.

Washington. March .~>!li. — The Cabinet
was made public to-day by the President,
who sent the names of its members to th«
Senate for confirmation. It was the Cabinet
predicted in these dispatches several days
ago. Bayard goes to the head "i the State
Department^ and he 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, i- nut well
acquainted with the foreign relations 6i
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 binding force upon the
United States. When Bayard opposed
the ratification of the Nicaraguan
treaty, his colleagues could not tell
whether he represented the views of Cleve
land or not. They now believe he did, .■;!;. I
that the Nicaragua treaty in its present
shape will never be ratified. Manning, the
new Secretary of the Treasury, must earn
his spurs as ii financier, He is an able,
conservative man. and has a practical
knowledge of financial and commercial a!
fairs. The choice of Whitney, Vilas and
Garland is praised by all anti-Tildeii men,
I whoso numbers are large and respected:
Many condemn the selection of [jitney,
but it is iv ' so much because he i*
ignorant of naval affairs as for the
reason that he is the second man from
! New York in the Cabinet. Laniar and
rCndicott are in some .sense experiments.
Their mental abilities, integrity and high
i personal standing are conceded by all, but
they are said to be indolent, and lacking in
executive capacity. The Secretary of War,
in time of peace, is never overworked. In
the Interior Department, Lamar must
prove himself capable of 11 scries -if physi
cal as well as menial labors, or his admin-
I istration of that di'partinent will be a fail
ure. Much of his success will depend
upon the man who is appointed Assistant
Secretary of the Interior. A diligent,'in
telligent and expert worker in this oflice
I ca;i '.I- wonders. It i.s rowrted day that
| ex-Sen .Jonas, of Louisiana wants
to be Lnniar*sright-haiHl man in the Interior
Department, i' .' there is no probability of
his appointment; I.uni'ir will undoubtedly
he allowed to name his assistant, and the
| man, whoever he may be. will probably be
I chosen with especial reference to his fitness
for laborious executive, work, For Assist
ant Secretary of the Treasury, in place of
Trench, hose decisions 'in the customs
cases have endeared him to the hearts of
ail importers. Charles F. Fairchild, of Al
bany, i-t said to be booked. French will
probably go" soon,, while there is a likeli
hood that the other assistant. Coon, will be
retained for mil 1 time. The name of
Judge Thurmaii is mentioned for the Brit
ish mission, but ii is doubtful if he wotij
accept it. Ex-Senator IVndleton's name is
frequently mentioned for Minister to
France, 4 and General MeClcllan is spoken
of for either the German or Russian Minis
try. Ex-Senator Stockton, of New Jersey,
will undoubtedly, receive a good appoint
ment in either the foreign or domestic ser
vice. 3'"or the office of Commissioner of
Pensions, ex-Congressman Bagley, of Now
York, and John 0. Black, of Illinois, are
leading candidates. Friends of Congress
man i'hil. Thomson, of Kentucky, hope
that be will get the Cominissionersliip of
Internal Ilevenue, and ex-Congressman
Money, of Mississippi, would accept the
post of First Assistant ister-GeneraJ
if it should !>■; tendered him.
"Th.< Day After the lair."
WAsni»GTo», March sth. — Thirty thou
sand people, who came here to attend the
inauguration, left Washington before day
light this morning. All day long, however,
the streets hare 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
men have been busy all day in tearing
down the grand stands and re
moving the decorations pot up along
: the avenues for yesterday's cere
monies. Groups of laborers were busy
vii 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 somewhai
dignified quiet. The people living here I
j will welcome rest. For forty-eight hours
there has been one continual hubbub of ex- ..
citement, noise and tumult. Bands have
played through the streets at all hours of j
I the" day and night ; men unable to find BO- i
I commodations have paced wearily over the j
i 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 genual principles. Order is i
gradually coming out of chaos, and the new j
i Administration, having had a breathing )
! spell, will soon begin its promised work of j
administrative reform. The resignations of
nearly all the foreign ministers have ;
either been received or are on their way to ;
the State Department, and their fat places, '■.
together with assistant secretaries of the 1
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 Ad- j
dress.
New York, March sth. — Evening \
Post and the Commercial Bulletin are the j
only papers here containing inaugural ex- I
pressions. Regarding servile immigration,
the PoM 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 sth. — The Transcript!*
criticism of the inaugural is thoroughly
Bostonisb. It says it is the production of
an alert, well-poised, strong brain, matured
in the best schools of rhetoric. Its utter
ances arc instinct with thought verified by
an intellectual energy rarely discoverable
in official compositions* In its compact
ness, swing, 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 — The Press
says: On minor questions it 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 and Office-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 matter^, and
all communications, petitions and par>ers
relating to office received at the White
House will be referred, without indorse
ment, to the proper Deportment. 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 arc constantly arising in the
Executive 1 department.
General 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
week- ago, so largely quoted by the press
of the country, requires some explanation.
It is fair to state that the facts at the lime
presented by the Medical Record were
founded on the best authority, that of Dr.
Fordycc Barker, the attending physician of
General Grant, and this explanation is
manifest in the following note:
•ji East TwENTV-EiGirrii Stefj r.
Dear Dr. iShrady: The statement which I
made you was literally true at the lime I made
it, and I am certain Dr. Douglas would have
then made precisely the same. I saw Dr. Doug
las last evening, and lie then said that what I
bad told you win exactly what he should have
said at the time, but Monday, alter I saw you;
the action of Congress bad a 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 i)c<n 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 it us epilhelioina, of a malignant
type probably. It was greatly improved for a
time by the local treatment of Dr. Douglas, and
the local condition was manifestly improving
until the moral shock broke down hi- general

VVeduesday noon. March -4. 1885.
It is a matter of di ep r< gret, dial the
grave suspicions enterUiim I ol the serious
nature of General Grant's diseasi are con-
firmed by a diognosi? of epithelioma of the
tongue and face. This disease, the name
low perhaps heard tin
general public f..r the first liiue^ssunri •
an importance as a study which it could
never otherwise obtain, i Consequently the
duily papers «re educating the people with
rejßini to it. so that the terms epitiielioiua,
malignancy and infilitration will be as
well understood a- in former times were
:' suppuration, pus track and bullet
cysts. A- might have been anticipated
under the circumstances, the published re
po.t- of the General's condition were very
I- ■; b exaggerated. The disease is by no
ne an as extensive as i- generally believi ■:.
In fact the ulcerations, -in. ill in extent, arc
limited to the right, pillar- of the fauces
ant'-rior. one b-iiig perforated .; i- base.
Adjoining the right side root of the tongue
is indurated to a slight extent, as is also
the Neighboring ghmd under the angle of
the jaw on tiie right side of t lie neck. The
roof of the mouth, along the line of i,.
hard palate, and to the right <.!' the medium
iino, contains three small, warty-like ex
crescences, which show a tendency toward
cell proliferation. The epiglottis is free
from any abnormality, as an all
the other part.- of the throat. Although
induration of the tongue has existed
more or less since la-! tail, when the pa
tient was seen by Dr. Douglas, the ulccra
tiona have appeared quite recently. It was
during their |>ropr — thai the Gi neral suf
fered from pain i;: the right ear, which has
now been entirely relieved by a local ap
plication of (our per ••••ui. of solution of
c iaciiie. Under the ■ i ..- treatment all the
pain in deglutition is now entirely con
trolled, and the patient kept in a very com
fortable state. The pulse, which is nor
mally si >;y pi i minute, occasionally
reaches eighty beats. The bodily tempera
ture is normal, the appetite fair, which is
saying everything it: its favor, as the Gen
eral i- pot a hearty eater. His bodily con
dition is, however, much below par, and is
more to be considered at presenl than the
local disease. The treatment of the case
ha been judiciously conservative from the
start, Fluid extract of coca is administered
internally, and iodofonu is dusted upon the
ulcerations. 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 :i«- dis
ease. The troublesome tooth said to have
been extracted for the relief of the lingual
ulceration, was on 1 1 1 • - opposite or sound
side of the mouth, and was removed to re
lieve the persistent ache of the left ear.

Itlulnc'.s Nearness to the Catholic Churcli.
Baltimore, March sth. — Yesterday, after
the funeral of Mrs. Walker, Blame met
Father Clarke, of the Society of .lons. The
meeting was very cordial. During the war
Major Walker's family, of which [Maine's
mother was a member, lived here, am
Father Clarke was their spiritual adviser,
He often spoke with them of the baptism
and confirmation of Mr. Blame. Holding
1;. ..:!!•• by the hand, after some conversa
tion, Father Clarke said: " Your sister
bad a strong belief that you would one day
return to the fold of the Catholic Church,
the one universal apostolic church.
Stranger things have happened. A few
months a." you looked forward, no doubt,
t'.Mi 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
1 love you." "Yes. I do," she whispered,
with a last flash of interest in this lite, " as
much as 1 love you."

A Family in Flames.
PrrrßßtrßG, 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 hail been told would
cure his horse of lameness. In the room at
the time, besides Kunkcl. was his daughter

Julia Walters, 13 years old, ami a young
man named Dipp. The mixture had been
on the stove probably an hour when i;
boiled over. Instantly it ignited, and a
second afterwards an explosion occurred,

flames in ail directions. Young Dipp.with
great presence of mind, grabbed up the can
with the burning mixture and start
ed for the door, while Kunkle ran
to the rescue of the children,
whose clothes were a mass of flames.
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 lire 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
bun ed, the flesh peeling oil 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 arms, but
will recover. Young Di|>p had the flesh
burned off his hands and arms, and Kun
kle is painfully but not seriously injured.
The damage to the house by lire \^;is very

NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
C H. IO
-FROM THE
Management of tne Metropolitan Theater.
I HAVE BEEN ; CONNECTED WITH THIS
Theater for nearly 17 years, and I think
tuts 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 nave, and especially rtcently,
Fullered a great deal of misrepresentation, vifi -
fica'ion and abuse, but have preferred to pass it
by and trust to the public to understand the mo-
tive of it. I believe it does understand for my
business has been better ever since these attacks
began, in which 1 have been charged with about
every crime except murder, 1 rented the fhea-
ter complete, with gas and all attaches paid, to
Mr. "A." Sauboru, tor the production of the
Cantata of " Esther." I consider^ Mr. banborn .i
gentleman. The ccntract was for ¥;;■,
per night, for three night", being less than the
usual charges, I did this notwithstanding]
lost 8300 by this company not tilling a regular
week which they formerly engaged for under
the management of Mr. Sanborus predecessor.
1 did not lind any fault at this, however, but
signed a contract to forego any and all claims
against the former management, except a small
sum for costs of rehearsal at the Theater.
i in Monday evening I received $62 50, on Tues-
day evening I received $75, and oil Wednesday
noun 1 received 512 50. Now, 1 was informed
by 'he Amateurs' box clerk that I would receive
the balance of the rent as soon as it came in.- 1
wrote a contract, which I asked Dr. I'inkham to
sign, for him to become security for the rent.
He refused to sign it. 1 then began to think that
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 ;> o'clock, 8:30 and at '.'. and was
informed that '.here was not enough money to
to pay it. although the house was full.
lie-rig compelled to leave at that time
l 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 bad enough experience in this business to
know that it is necessary to get your rent before
the engagement of a company is over. So 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 stale, however, that this theater owes
uo man, woman or child a single penny, i
have always endeavored to manage this theater
on business principles, pay for 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
Cniied 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 of toe liberal theater-goers
of this city, and shall endeavor us far as 1 tan
to merit their approbation. But when any
company occupies this theater 1 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 become so large and so
limoying that I was compelled to cancel the
passes, as- companies found a great deal of fault
with the enormous deadhead list at the Theater.
Of course, those people are always condemning
me, and others take it up, not thinking of the
origin of it. The class I speak of would like to
see a change ot management, thinking a new
Manager might once more recognize their
unjust claims, as for the abuse of myself by
the evening paper, I pass it with contempt as
unworthy of my notice. Regarding Ullberalitjr
to the "Esther" amateur.', they made no com-
plaint, and I offered them the bouse for next
Monday night for their benefit at 525 off, and
they accepted it and thought it liberal. ! want
to say once more about this "unpopularity ot
Simmons," that no one can run a theater in a
city -i) near 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 i,. the very liberal patronage al- )
ways accorded to this theater,
v 1 remain respectfully your obedient servant,
1). J. SIMMONS,
mrC-lt Manager Metropolitan Theater.
