The Sake Terms By Mail. Thursday, December 9, IS SC. PUBLIC OFFICE A PUBLIC TRUST. Public office is a public trust, and so the President .the other day removed Captain Jarvis Patten, and appointed Colonel Charles Morton of Angnsta, Maine, in his place as commissioner of navigation. This office is one created by Congress two years ago with the purpose to have in Washington a bureau which would pay special attention to the de cadence of our marine interests, collect facts, investigate the execution of the laws in rela tion to navigation, and make an annual re port to the Secretary of the Treasury con cerning needed improvements and amend ments to our navigation laws. He is the only officer under the government who has this matter direetly in charge. The bill pro viding for this office was put through Con gress by Senator Frye and Congressman Dingley, and, in accordance with their rec ommendations, Mr. Jarvis Patten was ap pointed commissioner. Mr. Patten has been a ship owner and shipmaster, and the re ports which he has made to the Secretary of the Treasury have been valuable. Colonel Morton has, it appears, been look ing for an office for some time. He is a good Democratic worker, but it is not claimed that he- knows anything about the navigation laws or about the shipping indus try. The Boston Advertiser thus speaks of the President in this matter: When it comes to turning out efficient Republicans and put' ting in inefficient Democrats, simply because the latter are Democrats and the former Re publicans, the time has surely come to con demn it as it deserves. If Mr. Cleveland keeps on going down hill, as he has been do ing the last six months, those who have put their confidence in his disposition to adhere to his declaration that public office is a public trust will be obliged to admit that he has not the firmness with which they have cred ited him. This case deserves attention. Captain Patten has done his work well, and is turned out to make room for a good Democrat. Thus does a great reform make progress. EDITORIAL NOTES. Boston boys are sometimes too smart. A lad in South Boston having handed his teach er a note reading, ''Licking don't do this boy no good; talk to him," provoked an in quiry that led to the discovery that he had himself written the note. An interesting move has been made by some colored people who live in Pittsburg and Allegheny, Pennsylvania. They have begun to organize a large retail co-operative business concern, asking only members of their own race to subscribe. The way the recent crazy speculation in mining stock struck the people of small means in San Francisco is indicated by the fact that during its progress $10,000,000 have been drawn from the savings banks of the city. Probably little of it will get back. Organ grinding is more of a business than many think. The organ grinders of New York have a trade union composed of 883 members. ' They parcel out the city into routes, as newspaper carriers and milkmen do, and when a man dies or goes home to Italy his route is sold to the highest bidder, the proceeds going into a general fund. The grinders average three or four dollars a day. Several of the manufacturers of knit goods in Cohoes have refused to obey the orders of their own association, and have opened their mills when they had agreed to close them, and have forfeited $5,000 each as a penalty. The explanation of their course is that each of them thought he could make more than $5,000 by resuming business. Such com binations will perhaps not prove much more effective than combinations of laborers. The inhabitants of prisons in the United States number 57,331, of whom 53,739 are at work and the remainder idle. By sexes convicts are 48,838 males and 3,901 females. The number of convicts working under the contract system is 14,939, or a trifle over 26 per cent. The contract system has more than any other class excepting those em ployed on what is called public account, and 15 per cent, are engaged in prison duties. The value of the product of manufactured goods produced in prisons and of work done by convicts bears a small proportion to the total product of the country. The censure of Mrs. Cleveland by a tem perance society in St. Louis for taking part in an entertainment given by Mrs. Whitney at which wine was served recalls the letter written by the former lady last August in which she says: "It rarely occurs that a woman needs for herself the restraining in fluences of a temperance pledge; but if by placing ourselves under the obligations of such an organization we can better help our fathers, brothers, lovers and frier ds, I think there should be no hesitation in the matter. I know something of the Good Templars, and that they do much good work. It is quite certain you can do no harm by casting your lot on the side of temperanoe, and yon may do much good." Robert Smalls, the negro who was counted out in the Seventh congressional distriot of South Carolina, has made the following ex planation of the performance: The registra tion law necessarily made the vote appear light, but it was not the light vote that made a return of a majority for Elliott. The result was obtained by deliberately closing large Republican polls. One was closed in Beau fort county (Bluffton); one in Berkeley county (Biggins Church); one in Richland county (Gadsden), and 5 but of 11 in George town county. The ballot boxes were stuffed at many of the polls. In Beaufort county I can trace over 150 votes of this character. After all that could be done by them the re turns still showed that I had a majority of the rotes as returned by the managers, and it must be remembered that every manager was a Democrat and with the commissioners appointed at the instance and upon the rec ommendation of the various Democratic county chairmen.

To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: The President informs Congress that he sees no reason to change the views as to sil ver coinage expressed in his previous annual meseage. It will be remembered that he there urged that we were "constantly paying out gold for silver to be added to the idle mass," and that "prosperity" was then "hesitating" on ao count of our silver coinage. He now assumes that the excess of gold exports in the year ending June 30, 1886, over those of the pre vious year is significant of the evil of silver coinage. He ignores the fact that we have gained hundreds of millions of gold since we began to coin silver dollars under the coie- age act of 1878 and that that gain has been largely the result of the excess of our im ports of that metal over exports of the same. He omits to say that since June 30th,18S6,the excess of our gold imports over exports has been many millions, and that larger importa tions of gold still continue. He does not, however, fail to state the amount of silver coined under the coinage act of 1878 down to the first day of December, 1886. A comparison of treasury figures which he does give us shows that we have in act ual circulation about twenty-four millions more money in silver and silver certificates than we had. one year ago. How would the business of the country be aitectea Dy tne withdrawal Of this large amount from circu lation now that "prosperity hesitates" less (thanks to continued coinage) and the busi ness demand for money increases? Has the cold in the treasury been depleted to pay for the twenty-four million dollars worth of bullion bought within a yearl Let ' the statement for November from the treas urer of the United States answer. Total cold in the treasury November 30, 1886, $354,450,854; outstanding gold certificates, $90,520,6S3; net gold in the treasury $163, 930,231. This is many millions more gold than was owned by the government a year ago, and is about twice the amount of silver owned by it. Now that England's solicitude aoour ner Indian empire and Indian exchanges has hrnnerht about the aDDOintment of a royal commission said to be favorably inclined to ward bi-metallism. and that a larger silver coinage in Furope seems certain, within a few years at most, cannot the United States safely continue to coin both gold and silver, the product of her own mines, to meet the reasonable monetary requirements of her people! According to the Financial Chroni cle, United States treasury and mint reports seem to indicate that within the last four months there have been issued from the treas ury and nut iu actual circulation among the people more silver dollars than have been coined in that time, besides many millions of silver certificates, and that the demand is now largely in excess of the coinage.

Apropos of domestic wars and rumors of wars, I can tell a true story. A husband, who is fond of his one little girl, and has been in the habit of cultivating her acquaint ance and taking an interest in her knowledge when he got home in the afternoon, leit town for a few days. When he got back, he took his pet on his knee and proceeded as follows: "Do you know how many commandments there are, darling!" "Oh yes, papa; nine." "No, no, dear, there are ten."

I dined with Ferguson the other day. Fer guson has a boy named Freddie. Freddie is a bay about nine years of age) and is consid ered very "bright." He is; he is positively brilliant. But if he were my boy I think T eould polish him still more. At all events I should try. Freddie came into the parlor soon attar my arrival, his face was shining from a recent viperous application of soap and water, and his vellow hair plastered down to his head so that every bump was plainly visible. "You don't remember ur. jonnson, ao yon!" said his father, taking the young cub on his knee. "Yep," was the reply. "What's that!" said Ferguson reprovingly. "Yep." repeated the boy, with a surprised look. Haven't I told you to always say yes sir!" " Yessir." "That's better. So you remember Mr. Johnson, eh! - It's nearly three years since Freddie saw you last," added Ferguson, turning to me. "It's astonishing what a memory the boy has. What do you remem ber about Mr. Johnson, Freddie? ' he inquir ed. - "I remember," rephed Freddie, ingenuous ly, "that his hair was white at the roots and black at the ends, and mar said she guessed he hadn't dyed it this week." This remark produced a feeling ot con straint, so to speak, and Freddie was banish ed from the parlor. I did not see mm again until I went in to dinner. Ferssson asked a blessing. As soon as he had fimishe d Freddie burst out with: "Par, what's the reason yon never do that 'cept when we have comp'y!" Ferguson made some facetious remark, but I saw a light in his eye which told me that there was trouble ahead for Freddie, and I re- loieed In secret. "Mar," said Freddie presently, don't you wish Aunt Man a was Here!" "Why, Freddie!" said his mother, with' a fond smile. - " 'Cause you said the other day that you wished sue an' Jir. oonnson could meet. 'cause he'd be such a good catch for her, an' it was about her last cnanoe, an' ' -"Frederickl" shouted Ferguson. "Why Freddie Ferguson!" exclaimed his other. The subject was quickly changed. I felt that it would be wise to send Freddie away from the table, but Ferguson dared fate, and permitted mm to remain. "Gimme another piece of cake!" said Fred' die, presently. "You have had three already," said his motner, gently. "I know I have an' I want another." "But" "I want another piece of cake!" What can you possibly want of more caxei" "Wanter eat it, of course. What'd yer s'- pose l wanted ter do with it put wheels on it an' use it fer a wagon!" It struck me that this would be a good time to remove ireddie and inflict corporal punishment upon him, but Mrs Ferguson thought differently. She regarded Freddie's remarks as laughable. "It's astonishing what a fund of humor that boy has got," she said, as Bhe gave him the biggest piece of cake on the plate. He's always making quaint remarks like that. Par and I think he'll become a great humor ist." "Mr. Johnson," said Freddie as we rose from the table, "can I feel of your di'mun pin!" "What a singular request," said Mrs. Fer guson. "But please let him do it if you don't mind Mr. Johnson. He's got some funnv idea in his head and we shall see what it is." We did. After rubbing the diamond sev eral times with his forefinger (incidentally coloring my immaculate shirt-front with cur rant jelly), he said wonderingly: "Why. it ain't sticky at all." "No, Frddie,of course not." said Ferguson smilingly. ''Why should it be sticky! Diamonds are not sticky "No, X s'pose not," said Freddie, "but 1 heard mar say that she thought it wasn't a di'mnn at all only, paste, an' I knew that paste " 5ut at this point Freddie was hustled out of the room by his father and in a few mom ents my heart was gladdened by the sound ot dismal yells in the distance. I saw no more of Freddie that evening. I do not intend to dine at Ferguson's again at present. , Society in Mexico. City of Mexico Letter to the Boston Herald. The habits of good society here are quite the same, with a little more dash of aban don, as anywhere in the world. The writer in the Bivouac speaks of the replacement of the lace veil by the "Ameri can hat.'" Nobody here wears American hats that is the ladies. They wear import ed Paris hats entirely. The sevillana, or modern small mantilla a most delightfully graceful headdress which ought to be the fashion in the States in summer, so univer sally becoming is it to all women is not at all displaced by the French hat. The Bevil lana is entirely permissible in the forenoon hours, and no lady wears a bonnet to church. The church costume is a black silk or woolen dress and a sevillana, xa& if you want to see some beautiful Spanish types among the la dies go to the cathedral or to the fashionable Santa Brigida or profesa churches of a morning where, among the hundreds of kneeling worshippers, you will see faaes that an American painter would give much to transfer to canvas. The Mexican ladies go to church daily in the morning hours, for here worship is not restricted to one day in the week, and the Mexican church is not a combination of lecture room, reception halls and church kitchen. It is a place in which to worship God and not to make a display of toilets and to cook oyster stews. The liberty accorded the ladies, young and old, nowadays is much more extended than in olden times. Then young ladies appear im on the street w ere invariably accompa nied, if not by a parent, by an old woman who served as duenna and kept a sharp eye on the girls lest they should catch the glan ces of the youug caballeros. It was then the rule for the girls to walk with their mouths hidden by their mantillas, which they kept in place by one hand. This fash ion of going with la boca tapada, or mouth covered, still obtains among the more modest young women of the lower classes, who car ry their rebozos in such a manner as to look lite Moorish women. In tact it is a Aloorisn custom, coming down from the- times when the Arabs ruled in Spain. It is considered very well-bred and modest for women of the lower class not to show their mouths to the men, but, as I said, it is not a universal cus tom even among lower-class people. An old friend, who has lived here nearly forty years, says that in his time, about 1849, there were only two Bhops in all tne oity where one could buy ladies' French goods silks, ribbons, bonnets, etc. There were not then, as now, shops with great plate glass fronts filled with foreign goods. Now you may walk along the principal streets and see in the great windows as ele gant goods as in Boston or New York. Some of the stocks of silks and ladies' goods car ried are very large. There are two crockery stores they are called "cristalerias" where splendid stocks are to be seen, but the goods are displayed mainly m upstairs apartments. Lakes Churned Into Soda. From the Portland Oregonian. I had heard much of the famous me dical lake, sixteen miles west of here, and so drove out to see it among the clouds of dust, gusts of wind and broiling sun alternately. The trip out and back was pleasant, however, a constant change of soenery and succession of surprises. We found there were three lakes instead of one, all the same water, said to contain "life's elixir," a cure for all human ailments. No doubt there are valuable properties in the water, as attested by the analysis and the numerous testimony of those relieved by its use. We were prepared for a bath, but time and inclination both forbid; time, because of the inclination first to eat; inclination from the presence of certain dead reptiles in the water to be seen a tmng, as tne attenaauii earn, "never before known." I said reotiles: these were at the bottom of the lake, which seemed half lizard, half fisb, with the fins of a fish, the arms of a lizard, the body of neither, with the fins of the tail horizontal, instead of perpendic ular as with a fish, a sort ot a mongrel, as like a salamander. In fact, these must have had peculiar tenacity of life to have lived in these waters at all, charged with salts as like lye, out of which near by they were making soap. The tiny waves of the lake had lashed the water into a foam, precisely in appear ance as like a heavy soap suds, the frothy suds piling up in some places a foot deep or more. NOTICE!
