DIFFICULT TO DECIDE.
It is probably not so difHciilt a
mnttcr to get an eligible man to fill
any vacancy occurring in the public
service, ns to decide which is the
most eligible for the place among
the numerous applicants which pre
sent themselves, or are nominated
by their friends, for every opening
that happens. There docs not begiu
to be offices enough in the Govern
ment to go around among the legion
of those who are desirous of serving
the country and who think them
selves fully qualified for the duties
to be performed. For every va
cancy there are numerous candi
dates. No doubt, it is sometimes
hard for the appointing power to
decide which is the most suitable,
and having made an appointment
naturally the disappointed candi
dates and their friends will think a
grave error has been committed.
We hold that the first consideration
which should operate in filling all
offices is fitness. Where this is
lacking in any candidate no other
consideration should secure his

NOTES ON NEWSPAPERS.
The defection of tho Chicago
"Tribune" is naturally disturbing
tho friends of Mr. Blaine, and it is
declared that a new paper will be
started to take the place of the ono
conducted by Mr. Medill. To this
the "Tribune" defiantly replies:
"Bring" on your bears I" The Now
York "Times" discusses the sub
ject in a more serious tone. Re
feiring to tho parties whb propose
to start the now paper, it says :
They will have their labor for
their pains, The Chicago "Tri
bune" cannot be replaced by a
ready-made journal, nor by an es?
tablished journal with a complete
change of policy. They will find
that the strength of a newspaper as
a political instrument lies in tho
respect tho public has for its sin
cerity, its judgment and its energy,
It may occur to them that even the
"Tribune" was not powerful enough
to save Blalncisra in 1884, nnd tho
loss of its support now is the moro
6et ions because its present attitude
is ihoro consistent with its life-long
reputation than was its course at
that time. Men with money, no
matter hovf it was got, can buy a
newspaper if there Ib one in tho
market, or can start one if 'they
choose to spend enough, but they
cannot buy the reputation or the
character that makes the reputation ;
that ajono gives any real yaluo to a
newspaper's ndypcacy of a political
party or a political lcadef.
Thero l In fills, ft fjrqnt donl of
sense begotten of experience. Any
man with money can etart n paper.
Picsses arc easily bought) type is
for salo everywhere: printers enn
easily bo hired ; writers are like tho
sands on tho eenshoro ; newsdealers
arc nlwnvs rcatlv to nlacc a now
commodity or their counters. But
when all ia etAA and done, the one
element necessary forsucces popu
lar ttiippoit is likely to bo wanting.
Every newspaper reader may be
supposed to be In the habit of read
ing some particular paper. He
reads it because ho thinks it n better
newspaper than others, or because
he agrees with its opinion, or be
cause he lelies on its honesty. Now
comes a uew journal which appeals
to him to discard his old paper and
take it instead. To be successful,
the appeal must be based on very
strong grounds indeed. It will not
suffice to argue that tho old paper
has for onco adopted an unpopular
course. Papoi s constantly adopt a
course which their subscribers do
not approve, yet, unless their new
departure is outrageous, it is over
looked, and they lobolittlo or noth
ing. Whorcas the now candidate
for public favor has got to establish
affirmatively that it deserves public
support and will continue to deserve
it. This must always' be a matter
of time. Reputations are not built
up in a day; the public waits and
watches ; if after a series of years
the new journal establishes a char
acter for sincerity, judgment and
energy, it will pr6bably command
success. But in the meantime the
projectors, unless their purse is very
long indeed, are likely to find it
No mistake is commoner among
tyros in journalism than to suppose
that success in the newspaper busi
ness is to be achieved by fitful
bursts of spasmodic enterprise. It
is quite questionable whether these
do not do as much harm as good.
They give the whole enterprise a
flashy chaiacter, and seem to im
ply as they cannot possibly be
kept up that tho new paper has
not come to stay. They are like
bursts of fireworks, which are very
pretty to look at while they last,
but which are sure to be succeeded
by black darkness. When a now s
paper announces that it has estab
lished a balloon service to the moon,
people clap their hands and applaud
its cnterpiisc; but it is remarked
that though they buy the paper for
several days to sec what the man in
the moon is doing, they do not sub
scribe. For sublunary news they
continue to rely on their old favo
rites. It is doubtful if theie'cvcr was an
instance of a paper which was staitcd
for a specific object becoming suc
cessful until it abandoned that ob
ject. Several of the leading papers
of to-daj' were started to accom
plish certain objects ; but the pro
prietors, being shrewd men, soon
discovered that the accomplishment
of a reform was one thing and the
establishment of a newspaper as a
business enterprise quite another,
aud they dropped the former to de
vote themselves to the latter. If
they had not their papers would
have died. It may be worth while
for Mr. Blaine's friends to start a
newspaper to advocate his claims in
the city of Chicago ; if they put up
money enough, it will last over elec
tion. But every one will feel that
it has not come to stay, and no one
will make contracts for advertising,
or subscribe for, a year. As to
affecting tho "Tribune," it will not
be likely to disturb the business of
that sheet to much extent. S. F.
Call, Dec. 21, 1887.
DO YOU TAKE THIS MAN!
Says the Sydnoy Bulletion : The
church in which a recent New Zeal
land wedding took place was wooden
and aged and rickety, and when the
lovely bride accompanied by her
consummate ma entered the build
ing shook beneath them. Things
went on smoothly enough, however,
until the clefgyman inquired, 'Do
you take this manN?' and teen be
fore ho could finish the sentence the
floor opened and thr whole happy
squad went down together into the
cellars. The bride led tho way
head for most, with the baptismal
font, tho altar,and a spector's baby
clofe behind, and after thorn came
tho bridegroom with the bulk of the
wedding party on top of him, lu
collar burst, his hat flying loose, and
a black eye. Tho paison' howover,
remained above, clinging to the pul
pit rail, and tho last thing he heard
waB thp voice of tho bride 'calling
out, 'I will,' as she was half-way
downr She was under tho impres
siou that tho bridegroom was be
neath her, ond as he was a wealthy
man she resolved with great presence
of mind to get through the servico
and get a caim an his assets before
she fell on him and squashed him

We take pleasure in iceoinineiidlng
our honlx, as their eotiMNiotlon U ihu
rcslll of vciira of Btmh' mid lntinr In
liiilldltig, nnd Immlllng bonis mound
our vni ions island innuliw. We claim
tlieiu boats to he Rupeiloi for mlnn i ufo
to others (ollher built lino or Imported)
in over 1 ccecntinl points, and wa avo
6upporto1ln this opinion by thoso who
havu usedthem, us well nk by othcrnwho
aio qualified to judge. They ato built for
uo nnd durability, and not with tho
Uew of htulng tho benefit of fiituio 10
palrs. We ueo no eioss prnlncd aud
useless Monkey Pod knees, timbers, or
floors, nor stinlcht wood stoms Our
frames nro nil iOk bent across without
a joint on the keel, nud of u size, larger
than usual In other bOits, they arc also
elbsfor together, nnd double rlvltcd to
the keel. With additional lloois between.
"We have applied both strain and blows
to these steam bent timbers and Uud
that they aro equivalent to tho so called
solid UoorB of twlec the ste, and are
consequently lcs IJablo to bo severely
bilged, nud nie easier repaired when It
occurs. Tho gunwules'nrc of Oak, and
with the outside plunking are Invariably
in one plank fiom stem to stent, Tho
hohllng strap docs not go thiough tho
IjcoI, cutting it away at a vital point.

timbers are not cutaway for water runs,
our limbers aro In the. keel. Wc have
also a solid vide Iron ptato on the keel
and steins of the bonl which have kcciir-
cd for theso boAts their well deserved
iiputntlou for supcilor build. Tho
model also compares favorably with '
our best Impoitcd bo.lt, en trying j,
their Width on the thwart, aud
not on the gunw alo as crank boats do,
tiklng all the chafe and pounding ,'
ngalnst M'fisuls and whaif, when dls
chaiglug. Our bent Oak knees also '
carry out the requirement of the oldest
nnd most experienced association known
who for TOyeats have spared neither
time nor money to piocur. the bet urf
aud life boats, whoieer found. Duilng
the trhtof 1S81, flexibility in boats, was '
found to be most issoutial, Tho rcla Ion
these knees bear to tlio jolntles beetlon
timbers and to tho hhat herself when ho
vciely f truck, to prevent a damaging
concussion or any datnugc, can be read
ily seen. This quality cannot be found'
In boats stilly held In ono place, and '
loose In another. Several naval Cap
tains and Olllccis who have iuspected,
this system pronounce it a great Im
provement over the old, as a pre cntlvo
ftom being stove In or bilged alongside
when bciug lowered at sea, as many
have been known to do the shoit floors
aud timbor ends lifting from the keel.
An other improvement, is that we sell
these boats for $80 less than was form- -erly
paid for this sle boat here, and
it pays the builder nnd buyer bettor. j.

little flat boat, that can bi. cairied ,on

works second to none in our watcis. .'

Wo are also prepared to give plans -aud
estimates of all kinds of scows,
iowingtsuif orsail'boats, steam laun
ches, or schooners, in solid, bent frame,
or diagonal building. Our experience
in the latter mode dates fiom 1651, when -the'
celebrated yachts "Kox." and others
were built in that way, this vessel was .
severely tueu m tne Arctic lor a yeais
under Sir J. McCllntock, when in
seal ch of Sir John Franklin. This mode
of building Js highly lccouunended
where inside finish and capneity is an
object. We invite inspection of our
boats at the Enteiprise Planing Mill,
wheio samples may be found,
