The Secret of Mr. Cleveland's Suc
cess.
The hostility to Mr. Cleveland in bis
own party is much less marked than it
! was a few months ago. The number ol
| Democrats of prominence who express
dissatisfaction with him through the me
dium of the convenient interviewer is
growing smaller. Even those who in
i dulge in little flings at him are careful to
say that they think be will be the party’s
standard-bearer again.
About all the hostility that has ever been
shown towards him has resulted from his
refusal to ignore bis own and his party’s
pledges respecting the civil service law.
Politicians who expected to control cer
tain offices, and office-seekers who failed
to get the offices they wanted were dis
appointed and angry, and gave expres
sion to their feelings in words that the
enemies of the Democratic party were
glad to put into print with the hope of
making a breach between the President
and his party.
A sober second thought has convinced
the great majority of even those who were
most bitter in their hostility that the
course of the President with respect to
the offices has benefited rather than
harmed tbs party. What the people want
is honest ana eecnomioal government.
They do not care about the little one
borae poet offices and olerksbips which
the average politician prizes so highly.
They want the thieves turned out of office
and puntabed and an end put to corrup
tion. They will Ignore party ties to sun
port a man who ia honest and determined
to do what is right without regard to cot
sequencse, and they will retain in power
a p arty that keeps Its pledges.
The political history of this country ie
full of instance* where the dominant
party was overthrown because tne
opposition was led by those who bad made
a record lor integrity in public affairs.
Mr. Tilden was able to overwhelmingly
defeat the dominant party in New Y'ork,
and, that too, without the assistance of a
single Federal or State official, because
he bad made a record as a ring smasher
and the enemy of thieves in high places.
Mr. Cleveland was nominated for Presi
dent and elected because he had been
true to the people and their interests.
Integrity In public as well as in private
affairs has its rewards, and Mr. Cleve
land, if be has not been governed in bis
course hv sincere convictions of right,
has beeD shrewd enough to see that If he
stood by :he people they would stand by
him. A sincere devotion to the public
welfare neTer falls to touch the heart of
the masses, and they are quick to detect
false pretenses and false logic.
Mr. Cleveland has made mistakes, but
public confidence in the integrity ot his
purposes remains unshaken. The mut
tering* of discontented politicians have
not weakened his hoid upon the peopde.
The unbiassd statement of the National
Civil Service Retorm League a few days
ago that where the civil service reform
rules have been adhered to strictly there
the Democratic party has grown stronger,
and in the few localities where
these rules have been broken by
by the persistence of aggressive party
leaders the party has lost ground, eni
puasises the wisdom of Mr. Cleveland’s
course. If he is renominated, and the
indications are that he will be, it will not
he because he has shown himself to boa
great statesman or a great President,
but because he has Impressed the people
with the belief that he is au honest man
and alms to administer the government
solely in their Interest.
A Tariff Ilcformer.
'There is no doubt that Mr. Fairchild,
the new Secretary of the Treasury, is a
firm believer in tariff reform. As be is a
man of positive opinions he will push the
laiiff reform policy of the Democratic
party lo the front whenever tbe oppor
tunity presents itself.
There ia every reason to think that he
will make an able Secretary. He was
acting Secretary lor several months be
fore bis promotion, and tbe I’resideni had
a lair opportunity io judge ol his capaci
ty as an administrator, executive officer
and financier. His successful discharge
of the duties of Secretary doubtless se
cured him his appointment to the Becre
taryship. If be proves to be as able a
m an as it is believed be is, he will assist
very materially in advancing the tariff'
reform cause. His recommendations
will have weight and will help to guide
Congress.
The Democratic party for its own wel
fare is bound to do something in tbe di
rection oi tariff' reform. 'The country is
about tired of promises. It wants to see
the promises fulfilled. If nothing is done
du ring the present Congress toward re
ducing the tariff the impression that
either the Democratic, party 1* not sin
cere in Us tariff reform utterances or
that it cannot make good its promises
will take a pretty firm hold of the publlo
mind. In either case tbe effect will be
damaging to it. Mr. Fairchild can do
bis party great servico by making the
most of his opportunities to reduce and
reform tho tariff.
The merchants of Canada are very
much afraid of tbe retaliation bill passed
by the last Congress. They tear that
President Cleveland will soon enforce it,
and, In consequence, they are ’shipping
goods to the United States in large quan
tities. The exportations to the United
States during the first quarter ofthe pres
ent year amounted iu value to $300,000,
an increase over the same quarter last
year of nearly $160,000. Troubl* bet ween
tbe United States and Canada is not at
ali probable. The two countries have too
much in common to permit of a serious
misunderstanding.
It may surprise tbe I’hiladelphia Press
and a few other unreconstructed haters
ol tho South, but this scotion is not
auxious that tbe old ship Hartford
shall be condemned. The Historic ves
sel now lies at Maro Island, Cal. It will
cost SIOO,OOO to repair her. It may be
unwise to spend that much monov on
ber, but tho government might at least
bave her towed lo Washington and kept
then) lor the inspection of visitors.
8. 8. Cox, of Now York, is prominently
mentioned as a suitable chairman for the
Committee oi Ways and Means iu the
House of Representatives of tbo next
Congress. The clislrman of that com
mittee is generally looked upon as the
leader of tbo party In power In the
House. Mr. Cox Is skilled in legislation

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 1887—TWELVE PAGES.
Modern Peripatetics.
A State exchange records the death of
an old school teacher wno had given in
struction in twenty different schools.
He was more of a peripatetic than
most teachers, but there are
not many that have not taught
in more than one school. It is part of
the trials of the teacher to have to move.
Asa rule, unless he has a prolessorship
in some college, he migrates at intervals
of three or four years. In some cases it
is his fault that he has to move, but
In the majority oi cases it is the fault of
those who support the schools.
People who send children to school
in the smaller towns and country dis
tricts seem soon to weary of a teacher.
His task is a difficult one, and it is im
possible for him to avoid giving offense
Among his ‘-patrons”—an unpleasant
word in this connection—there is always
one more influential than the others, and
it generally occurs that he is more easily
offended than the others. When
ever he is offended he at once
begins to use his influence
against the teacher, and it is not long be
fore the latter finds'that he must move or
remain to engage in a long, unpleasant,
and unprofitable light. If, at the ap
proaching meeting of the Georgia Teach
ers’ Association, those in attendance
should give their experience on this sub
ject it would be found that nearly all bad
suffered at the hands of the “influeutial
patron.” The truth is,' the average
teacher, outside of the cities and larger
towna, is a man without a fixed home,
and the “influential patron” is largely to
blame for this condition of affairs.
It is, perhaps, more unfortunate for the
pupils than it is lor the teacher that the
latter is so oiten a peripatetic. Under
frequent change of instructors the pupils’
progress is retarded. In most Georgia
towns a boy of fifteen has had half a dozen
different teachers. He has received from
them as many different impressions, has
been taught and untaught, and in ttie
end will be little more than what
is expressively called a “smatterer.” As
it is with-the boys so it is with the girls.
Every year a complaint comes up from
the colleges that the students who enter
are not properly prepared. In most
cases the reason is that they have had too
many teachers.
When the “patrons” of a school are
satisfied that they have a competent
teacher they should make it to his inter
est to remain. If he knows that his po
sition is permanent and that he has the
good will of bis "patrons,” he will ac
complish his work to good purpose, and
the pupils who receive his instruction
will be the gainers. A good teacher is
invaluable to any community.
A Notuble Convert.
The Morning News is gratified to ob
serve that its warnings relative to
“booms” have had a good effect. Most of
the journals in the South w hich have the
true Interests of their section at heart
have reproduced what the Morning
News has said on this subject, and nearly
all ol them have added their indorsement.
The Morning News is especially grati
tied to observe that the esteemed Age, of
Birmingham, is among the journals
which see that the progress of the South
may be injured by too many “booms.”
In a recent issue the esteemed Age de
clares that one little manufactory which
employs a few scores of workingmen is
worth more to Birmingham than all the
real estate agents in that city, dec
laration is evidence that the Morning
News is not without influence even in
the great centre of “booms.”
What the Morning News has said all
along it here reiterates. Tbs bouth has
resources wbicn only need to be known
to attract capital aud consequent (level
opulent- She cannot afford to have the
confidence in her undeveloped resources
ana her future greatness which now
exists destroyed by the kind of specula
tion that is witnessed in some localities.
She cannot have steady, healthy prog
ress if unscrupulous real estate agents
are allowed to cry “boom” every time a
scrap of iron ore on a piece ot coal is
found. There are localities where the
advance in real estate is legitimate, be
cause they have something wnich in
sures steady and solid growth, but this is
not the case with respect to all the places
which are being boomed.
In the case of Birmingham there is no
question but that it is truly a “magic
oity.” Its wonderful growtu is largely
the result of the Inexhaustible riches
which nature has hidden within her sur
rounding bills. But it can hardly be de
nied that it would be belter for her if she
had fewer real estate agents and more
solid investors who propose to make their
homes within her limits. In placing itself
upon the platform of tho Morning News
the esteemed Age acts wisely.
Traveling; Expenses.
Comptroller Durham, of the Treasury,
ha* a little row with a couple of Federal
judges on hi* hand*. The Comptroller
thinks that tho judges, like some Con
gressmen when attending Congressional
funerals or oil jaunts about the coun
try on committee work, have no hesita
tion iu grabbing as much out oi tho
Treasury lor expenses as they can.
The judges with w hom ho is having
trouble are Judge Deady, of Oregon, and
Judge Hammond, of Tennessee. Judge
Hammond was called to Ohio to hold
court a few days for a judge wbft was
sick. The government pays the traveling
expense* oi judges under such oirouDi
stances. In Judge Hammond's expense
account was an item of sir> (or “et

allow it ou the ground that ho did not
know what it oovered. Too Judge an
swered that it meant “shines, •haves,
drinks and newspapers.” Oi course tho
Comptroller declined to allow It. Hu said
tber* was no law that required the
government to furnish whisky to judges
or to pay lor having the mud scraped oil

him last Thursday by the editor of .he Ap
peal as a spring benevolence. 'The dea: went
round again, and once rrore the old squaw
term,nsted ilic play w ith an ace. Again the
buck rose up, and after invoking the h azing
sun hauled off a while ahtrt, somewhat ttie
wor-e for wear, presented him by Bob Keat
ing during the pendency of the lottery bill.
Once more the cards were flipped over the
old horsey- blanket and that me was laid
dnta by the skinny-handed squaw amid a
shout of’triumph front the crowd.
Tne buck, with tbe old ancestral vim of the
WaDitie tribe flashing in ins eye, danced out,
and. pulling off Judge Hawley’" pants, flour
ished them in mid air, and staked them on the
turn of tbe next car”. Amid a murmur of
condoling voices he lost again, an t this time
pulled off another pair of pants, the birthday
gift oi U. M. Yet ring ton, on las; election day.
Again the cards were artistically e.otn
mingied, and the . Id fossil relic of the Wm
nemucca war took in the eiotbes. He stil
had an old pair of pants leu, a valentine
preseut from Joe Douglass, and well worn.
Amid breathless silence be lost, aud peeling
off his only remaining pauts.be did them up
in a small wad and flung them at tne squaw’s
bead. A bowl ot aboriginal laughter went
up, aud the squaw, motioning toward the
breech-elotb, began manipulating the card*.
But the buck, who st.lt had some living rem
nants of acclimated modesty, declined to
further denude himself, aud breaking from
the crowd ran like a cross-eyeti gazelle up
the street, causing much astonishment to
several housewives along tbe line of hit
flight. Then the oid squaw placed the arti

BALDIIEiUKU aikn.
Why They Become so, nd Why They
Wear Cap*.
From the year Yo> k EvrninQ Sun.
“1 will bet that you never 6aw a middle
aged athlete who wasn’t baldheaded; and I
w II also wager that you never saw an athlete
wtio didu’t wear a skull cap wheuever there
was the slightest chance of his head being ex
posed to the utr,” reflectively remarked I*rof.
John B. Lafliu, the athlete, yesterday.
"What makes them baldheaded, and why
are they so careful about tbeir heads?” a*ked
a reporter, promptly inserting the uvo queries
jtisr, where the professor evidently expected
them
“Well,” was the response, “Ihey get bald
headed—just likeme—Hirouih excessive men
tal and physical exertion. You never saw a
baldheaded idiot, did you? Athletes in train
ing sweat a great deal, and the sweat, of
course, acts on the hair ot the head. We
always wear skull caps, because everybody
knows that nine-tenths of the colds which
are contracted commence in the head I pro
tect my head just as carefully as a mother
protects the top of her baby's bead.
“By the way,” exclaimed the professor,
breaking off in his discourse. “I know how to
cure nine-tenths of mankind of the habit of
going out of theatres between acts. Now,
probably you think those men always want to
get a drink?”
The professor was informed that there was
a popular tradition lo that effect, whereupon
he drew himself up and solemnly and earn
esily made this startling assertion;
"Nine-tenths of the men do not go out for
drinks. Tney leave their seats simply be
cause their heads sre cold. You needn’t
smile. I know this to be a fact. I have had
a dozen friends complain to mo about the
draughts in theatres between acts, and I have
al was suggested that the wav lo remedy the
evil is to wear a SKUII cap. 'This brings me
back to the pointl star,ed from, and let me
tell you that you cannot be too careful of
.your head Skull caps are mighty useful, let
me tell you.”
Army Ollioera and Their Wives.
! rom the Neio York Keening Sun.
Washington, March 30.—hast winter ac
counts were published of the ejectment from
the llriiUh Legation of two ladies who cauie
uninvited into a inusieale given by Miss West.
The invitations to this entertainment were
verbal, and when the handsomely attired
s rangers entered ilie legation parlors Miss
W eai naked them their names and it they had
been invited.
The ladies gave their names, said they wore
the wives of army officers, and admitted that
they had not been invited, Tne servant was
thereupon ordered to show them the door.
Some days afterward Miis West related this
incident of Washington ifo at a dinner party
w here General and Mrs. Sheridan were among
the guests. Mrs. Sheridan privately asked
Misa West for the names of the 'adies, Dut the
daughter ol the Minister refused to leieai
them. Gen. Sheridan next eailed at the le
gation on a similar mission, but met with no
better success. Finally Mrs. Sheridan ad
dressed a note to Miss Wes:, begging the la
d t s’ names, and saying that as the wile of the
General of the Army and the social head of
army society lit re she thought -be was onti
t eu to the information. Miss W'est reluctantly
gave the n rues, and Mrs. Sheridan took the
army register and hunted Ills officers’ roster
to idem ify the offenders. Her search was in
vain. The names did not appear, and she
sent the register to Miss West, with a tri
umphant note viudicat ng the wives of armv
officers from any sucli charges of imperti
nence and ill-breeding as the story told by the
mistress ol the legation implied.
A Paradox.
From the Somerville Journal.
The bachelor’s lot is lonely and sad,
l’oor ■ an!
He hasn’t a wife to make his heart glad.
He doesn’t know bow lie’d be blessed if ho
had;
Nor can
He conceive what it is he has lost,
He to inks he has only escaped “being
bossed”—
Poor manS
Oh, the bachelor’s heart is sorry and sore.
Indeed!
He knows he can never know joy any more,
Aud he looks upon life as a terrible bore.
Agreed
With the croaker that life doesn’t pay,
Aud loull thoughtless lovers impatient to say:
“l'uke heed!’’
Yes, the bachelor’s lot is a desolate one,
Aud yet
Tuere are girls who think it would really be
fun
To share It with him, after all’s said and
done;
Forgot
All his miseries many, anil pleasures so tew,
1 know lots of girls who would do it—dou’t
you?
Y'ou bet!
He Got t here.

Senator Hearst, of Californls, appears to

The improvement tn the calling of station*
by the trainmen is remarkable. Instead of
rushing in a they used to anil veiling, and
then running nut ns though they had to c!oe
a real estate transaction anu overtake ihe
train before it reached the next station, they
now lake advant goof ihe silenco preceding
the start and sing in a sweet tenor voice, “St.
Johnsville is the next station," make a bow
aud pass out.
Not long ago the Russian government,
through its subsidized French mouthpieces,
accused the Bulgarian regents o( putting un
der the knout the cutthroats who had plotted
against their lives and the peace of the peo
ple. The charge was immediately proved to
ne unrounded. But its natural sequel now
appears in the authentic announcement that
two girls in Ru-sta have been knouted into
in-ensibiilty and almost to death for sup
posed connection with a Nihilist organiza
tion.
Recently the head of a great Bordeaux
wine house called on Prince Bismarck, who
for years has purchased most of his wines
from that bouse. The man of blood and iron
gave an order for a large consignoient of
wines, and then the Frenchman uieereetly
tlshed for sn opinion as 10 the probability of
war. “Tut, tut,” exclaimed tbe Prince,
“what put war into your head? Do you sup
pose I would order wiue of you if I expected
war? No, no; I would come aud get it
myself.”
Joseph Henry, a New Haven deaf mute ,
about 20 years ot age, began early in the
winter to attend the polo games in New
Haven. During the exciting periods of the
games it was noticed that Henry jumped
from his sent and attempted to shout. For
a long time his efforts in this line were on
successful. But recently hi-powers of articu
lation have steadily unproved and he is now
able to speak considerably. Bocal physicians
are of the opinion that if the young man keeps
p his attendance at the polo games, and also
his happy faculty of going off into a white
heat of excitement, be will be able to talk as
well as anyoody by the end of the season. He
is still as deaf as ever.
Avery large bird of nrey, supposed to be
of a species of eagle, was seen in Pacousett,
Conn., last Saturday. It sailed overhead
with quite a large dog alive in its claws, and
al ghted Dear the small pond. Being fright
ened, the eagle let go of ibe dog. which went
limping across the meadows, w hile ihe eagle
ea led northward, casting a shadow as it
passed over (as an eye-witness says) “like
that of a smail tree.” The I ird was seen by
Ki]ward Markham, Edward Button and Mrs.
Hall aud daughter also by several children.
All were cons deraMy excited, and say that it
“was an immense fellow, and could have car
ried off a child as easily h- it did the dog.” it
was seen in the same neighborhood the next
day.
Joaquin Miller, who Is now living in
Oakland, Cal., says that, although be haß
bees around the world twice, and ha* seeu
many pleasant places, he tin is Oakland tbe
most delightiul of all. Here is some of the
poetic i rose in which he bursts into eulogv
in the Oakland Evening Tribune: “Here I
wear wool garments all the year through,
and yet I pluck a rose or flower for my button
hole every day in the year from any one of
the thousand overhanging gardens. Lying
here in the lap of the towering old leonine
hills that bend in a protecting crescent around
us, with the Golden Gate at our dour, we are
in a very f-vored part of a greatly favored
land. And how may be the luture of Oak
land? X do not really know, and I do not
greatly caro; hut its present, as I said before,
suits me entirely, else 1 should not be here.”
A crazy man, by name Wattoriind, recent
ly terrorized the Swedish town of Goteborg
for more than a whole week. He had locked
himself in tbe top story of a house, whence
he commanded a wide sweep of street, and
marked cud tired at any and everybody who
approached. After he had shot one man dead
the firemen attempted to drown him out, but,
could not get near enough, as tne man was a
dead shot. They next made iron shields to
protect them in the approach, but these
proved too cumbersome. An attempt to dis
lodge the lunatic by throwing dumb bells
charged with electricity at him had to be
abandoned. A barricade was ihen eroded
around ihe house bv the police and a regular
lege laid to it. The lunatic stood it a week
beiore he was starved out, and was theu
se’zed by strategy, too weak to defend him
self. He had wounded a number of people
from bis perch during the singular campaign.
The Edinburgh Review thinks that the
planet Mars may justly be considered a kind
of duplicate earth, it being endowed with
land, water, clouds and air, and snow accum
ulating around its poles in their respective
seaßoc.sof win er. If this be so, the atmos
phere of the planet is, however, obviously
much more rare than that of the earth, so
that it only exerts at the planet’s sunace a
pressure of about two pounds and a Quarter
to the square inch, 'ihe climate of is
conceived, from the small amount of snow
that accumulates at the poles of the planet, to
ne compara tvely mild; and the waier is uia

basins to an extent, in some places, of 8,. Ou

Here is an anecdote whic h illustrates how,
in the olden time, one tithing man, at least,
magnified hie office. Gen. H. was the great
man of the town. His daughters were sent to
Boston to be educated, and oue of them came
home with a Boston lover, who is m w a
merchant in New York city. He went to
church with her. But Boston manners and
New Kngand country manners and ideas
were not Hie same. When ihe hvmti was

a “respecter” of persona, and that ne tbougbc
a very fearful sin. Therefore, he took "is

Somebody who ha* been investigating the
