Our l'llbllc NcrvmltH. TJogtntilng vritli tho day succeeding tho Inauguration of President Clovolnixl, tin Washington concspondonts ami tho Well ington newspapers, for tbat matlor havo ground rut a doleful tuno of sympathy for tlio Cabinet olllcors and heads of Depart ments In tliclr struggles with tho ollloi seikors. It has been represented that groat irobs of pcoplo havo constantly boitogod tl o doors of tho Cabinet ministers, and that processions of place-hunters havoblockidocl tho Department corridors, rendering thn transaction of business lmposilblo and making tho llfo of nn ofllcc-hoidcr n bur.lou to himself and his frlonds. Only yostorday, It Js alleged by n morn ing contemporary, ono Cabinet rnlnlitor was compelled to close his doors ou tho mob for fear of being trampled to death, Thcro has novcr been a word of truth In theso startling assoveratlons, and their "damnablo Iteration" lias workod mow ' prcjudlco to tho loading ofllco-holdcrs than kll their rofusnls to mako doslred appoint- incuts. I'nbllo business must bo transacted, end whenever a Cabinet ofUcor retires from leforoa delegation of six or eight eltlzons Id order to illsposo of urgent matters, tho prcis unites in saying that ho "closed Ills t'oorsontbo howling mob to otcipo being trampled to death." Wo protest against theso falsa and mis leading statement. Slnco Inauguration wck tho applicants for olllco havo at no tlmo constituted n mob,, and, during tho past six weeks, havo scarcely risen to tho dlinoistonsof a crowd. Why thonglvo lb) country to understand that threo-fourtln it Its citizens aro horo for ofllec, when tU) Tiycrso Is true? Why plnco tho Cablnic onicois In tho position of flocing from thi uiob of place-hunters, when thoy havo bad no occasion to Qco ? Tbo right of petition continues to ho a dlvlno right, and tho nowspapcra which icprcsont our public servants as running away from tholr sworn dutlos or seeking to avoid that which thoy know must foil iw tholr acccptanco of olllco, aro doing a gravo Irjustico to tho Cabinet. The Cabinet has no right to compliln of tho placo huntora. This Is a frco country, end an honest cltizon has as good reason to ask for tho collcctorshlp of his district, as a Senator has to seek an appolntmont to tho Cabinet. Wobollovo tho prosont Cabi net baa neither complained nor Bhown sur prise, but on tho contrary has ondeavorod to );rect with cordiality and dororonco the delegations which havo called to Intorost thoso In authority In tho matter of ap pointments. Therefore tho nowspapcrs that represent the ofllco-seckors as "a howling mob," an! tho Cabinet as fleeing from that which thoy havo no right to seek to avoid, aro dolug tho gravest lnjustlco to tho Administration, and woikingaprejudlco thntyiars of great deeds may not remove. Tlifl r.lulil-Ycnr Theory. Now that tho OTovorumont clerks aro assured that tbo present Administration will duly enforco the Clvit-Sorvlco law, It may not occasion alarm to say that practi cal Republican statesmen liko Senator 1'lumb aro opposed to many of tho Civil Service features. It is a pleasant fiction which somo clerks and oDlctala havo repeated bo often as to become thomsolvca convinced of its truth that about nino-tcnths of tho proa cut employes aro exports, and so indlspen cable that tbo Government would go to smash without their sorvlcos. It Is fright ful to thluk bow easily tbo Republic could lo reduced to anarchy by a fatal cpldomlc of moaslca among tho Departments. Senator Plumb, liko a great many states n en, Is opposed to tho creation of an office holding class as an idea repugnant to ovory prlnclplo of frco government. Hobtdloves that removals In a cortaln class of ofllces honld not bo mada for political reasons, but that theso employes should bo rcckoood on their merits. Tho best foaturo of tho now doctrine Is, that no person should be allowed to servo tbo Government In any capacity boyond a poriod of oight years. Ills argument is that tho young men all over this country should bo encouraged to seek that knowledge of national alTilr which a brief term of Govornmont servlco would yield, with tho distinct understand ing that bis service was only ediicitionai, and that under no circumstances would ho be permitted to become a barnaclo. This would furnish tbo Government with a constant stream of bright, actlvj men now, and raise up a crop of groat statesmen for tho futuro. Moreover, such a course would provent tho building up of an office-holding class, and savo hun dreds of men from being dwarfed tn body and mind by tho routluo of twenty your) or more of Government employment. Ic would placo an lusurrnouutublo barrier against tbo pousloning of civil office holders from tho publlo Treasury and would estop tho nation from robbing men it a livelihood In the pursuit of prlvat) avocations. In a government whero every citizen is a aotor, and tho humblost rag-picker a po3 ilble candldato for tbo Presldonoy.lt does not appear to bo necessary to build upon office holding class as a specially favorod few, it hose knowledge of publlo affairs Is to rrake thorn forever Indispensable to tbo Government. If the machinery of.tho Ki tubllobas become thus Intrlcato and prob lematical, perhaps It would be well to abol ish the Departments entirely and got back to a government by a proildency o.-acon-mlate. NplrllnnllatN In Court. St. Louts is nothing if not sensational. Her latest exploit is a prosecution of cer tain spiritualistic rnodiuniB on the chargo of obtaining money by false pretenses, and the dally newspapers of that city gtvo joges of space, to tba testimony, Inter larded with wood-cuts of tho witnesses. Tho sensational phase of tho trial is the evldonco given by promlnont lawyors, thyslclans and preacberj, who for the first lime publicly avow tholr belief In spirit ualism and rob ear so their marvelous ot rerlonces In tbo prosonce of a crowded court-room. The most Interesting testi mony thus far elicited Is that given by ox Judge Thomas J, Portia, ohiof attornoy of the Gould system of railroads and thn Western counsellor of Mr. Gould himself. Judgo Portia has for fifteen years been eminent at tho bar and always regarded as a piactlcal, matter-of-fact man, whoso cjtl mato of shams and frauds conll bo rollod upon. Yet Judgo Portia told tho court that tha ghostly visitants In whom ho bollovcd told him thcro wcio cities aud schools, churchos, railroads, gas-works and fino theatres In tho spirit-world ; that thcro wore, dlssipatod spirits who accompanied tholr earthly friends to saloons and imbibed alcoholic perfumes; that thcro wcro spirits who, by educating and dovoloping their earthly knowledge, hecamo nil-wise, and. wcro thou placed In "tho universal fatherhood of God;0 that ho had seen tho modlum, thon In court, suddenly lifted to tho colling In her' chair during broad daylight, and that sho cculd, If sho so desired, rlso from her placo In tho court and wrllo her namo ou tho celling of tho court-room. "If sho'll do that I'll dismiss tho caso light hero," said tho prosecuting attornoy; but tho challctigo was not accoptcd, and tho trial is still in progress, KIMorracprtcp. Tho Now York H'orW dontos that Mr. Cbailcs Gibson over owned or now owus n penny's worth of stock In tho St. Ij tills I'cst-Dlfjmtch; or that ho awns or over his iwned a penny's worth of stock in tho H'crW. Tho denial Is mado In contradl ton of a wldcly-dlssomlnatod story to tho ctntrary, which also relates that bccamn of thuso business relatione, tho editor of tho World desired tho appolntmont of Mr. Gib ton ns Mlnlstor to Germany, and bolag dls arpolntcd In tho mattor thereupon dcclarol war upon Mr. llayard. Till! Wasiiinoton CntTic, In n purely disinterested effort to explain how It hap ronod that a high and mighty organ of tho National Dcmoctacy should proceed to pul verize tho Democratic; Secretary of State beforo ho had been two months in olUco, suggested wlint tho grlovanco might be. For this wn aro charged with an "unwhole some tlllorcsceuco," which tho IIVM pur poses to "nip In tho bud," adding with an elegant superfluity of words that "it Is ai a shoestring to a tan-yard The Washing Kin Ciiitio will not tako tho troublo to concct Its mlstatcmonts." But thoro Is i)( thing mean about The Ciiitio. If we havo been guilty of an "unwholcsomo otllor i fcc n co" or anything elso unpalatablo to our (Stccmcd contemporary, wo stand cheer fully corrected. In tho mcantlmo our original question, which Is the only ono of importanco In tho matter, remains open and uncorroctod "Why this warfare ou Secretary Biyard?'' An nnwholcsomo rllloicsconco should not only bo "nipped In tho bud," but pulled up by tho roots. Itnilier roil Widen Hiirsln. Tho wide border with which The Wash ington Critic was presented to Its rcalots yesterday, and Is again presented today, Is not a pretty thing to look at, nor Is it In tended as ono of tho many Improvements In tho paper which the public has boon promlstd. It la simply a mechanical necessity im posed by having to print Tub Came, during tho trying process of removal, upon a press of dllfeiont slzo from Its owu, but tbo troublo will soon bo ovor. To-day's, we aro pleased to state, will bo positively our last appearance In this grotesque aud some what outlandish shapo. The National Jockey Club courso and grounds ate now In tho most attractivo con dition. Eitcujlvo Improvements havo bcou mado slnco tho fall meeting, and tho sur rounding hills and vales, fresh in tholr spring vcrduro, present oua of tho most beautiful landscapo viows In tho country. Thcro is no racc-courso In America with such a charming and picturesque outlook as can bo enjoyed from the grind stand and club-houso of this jockey club association. Thcte aro somo two bundrod racing stcods now qt the track taking their dally oxor clco and training, preparatory for tho spring meeting, which cornnionces on Tuosday next. Tho managers of. tho association aro untiring in their efforts to mako tho meet ing noxt week ono of tho most attractivo In Its successful racing history. Tin: individual who fired ou tho Presi dential train yesterday was probably greet ing tho party with nothing more tliau a friendly saluto, though bis enthusiasm may have rondered him n trifle careless with his gun. No other theory of the caso can bo entertained in theso piping times of peace. Tbo homicidal crank businoss wont out with tbo grand old party. Mb. Henry Wattebson having visited Washington and looked at things with a microscope, announces with something of a dramatic flourish that tho Administration Is all right and that bo will support It. With such encouragement as this tho Ad ministration can look forward to a warm summer without any fear of much dis comfort. Senator Vooriieeh refusos to discuss any such proposition as that Mr. Cleveland may provo disloyal to his party or tho prin ciples npou which It elected him. "My con fldenco In bis integrity la absolute." Too Tall Sycamoro of tho Wabash carrloi a lovol head. Some of tho Now York ministers aro quoting General Grant's caso as ono of faith cure, and thoro Is this much to be said In favor of tho theory that tho doctors cau not successfully controvort It with any theory of their own.
