Now, all of this sounds very pretty, not
"Withstanding the rhetoric is cot particularly
brilliant The Journal's talk about "discrim
inating between treason and loyalty" would
come with tetter grace if it wai not a notori
ous fact that Republican administrations
first saluted treason and hastened to dis
criminate in favor of those who had been
engaged in the rebellion. One prominent
r bei General was called into a Republican
Cabinet, and another sent upon a foreign
mi:icD. Marty others were given plasms of
honor and trust.
We referred the other day to that wonder
ful committee o' Republicans who went
"junketing" to fcaa Francisco, New Orleans
and Mexico, to spy out the land aa l ascer
tain why our commerce with Central and
South America was eo trilling and small.
The United States Treasury foots the bill.
They went in a palace car as long as they
could find any rails to run on. They found
them for about forty-one days, and paid $35
per day for the car, to say nothing of othsr
expenses. The Chicago Times hunted up the
details of this disgraceful a'Jair, and we call
the attention of our readers to eome of them.
The expenses for three months ran to $5 3U 2.,
and these are exclusive of salaries, which
run at the rate of 57,500 for each of tvoof
the committee and .,C00 for the other one.
The Secretary of State of the lasi Republican
administration has certify d to the correct-
cess of the accounts. So the entire affair
bears the exclusive brand of Republicanism.
Among the items we find a hotel bill in
New York for iVJO. The committee tarried
a leng time there t5 find out about commer
cial affairs in Central America. The com
mission got to Philadelphia on the ISth and
hit on the 2Uh, and its hotel bill was $72 7s:
but this sesnis to be supplemented by some
other items. For example, on the 20th of
October Commissioner Thatcher's expenses,
amounting to C5, were paid. The coai
misiion came from Philadelphia to Chicago,
and then went to Baltimore, whre it de
posited ;2 in the palm of the Board of Trade
porter, presumably for the commercial in
formation he furnished. The stenographer's
bill for the session of the commission in
New York was $211, and the total expenses
for the month were $511 25 The steno
grapher at Philadelphia cost $147.0), and the
stenographer at Baltimore $0-3. The disburs
ing clerk found it inconvenient to carry
large sums cf money loose in hi3 trousers
pockets, and he invested the modest sum of
42.50 in a "pecketbook for funds."
The telegraph bill for November was
5110.82, and lor Decjniber $37 05. Another
hotel bill in 2ew York, November 10, is
charged up at $51.40. On parting with their
affectionate car employes at Mexico they
tipped them S ii&in to tae tune of $1". Car
riage hire for five days in the City ci Mexico
cost $95, which seems not unreasonable, as
they had to make a good many visits to the
public offices. They tipred the hotel serv
ants $10 worth, and htd $ JO worth of .short
hand wrk done 'J he commission spent
two weeks in the City of Mexico, acd the
hotel bill of Commissioner Reynolds, of Mis
souri, was '.2; that of Commissioner
Thatcher, of Kansas, -..(. and Secretary W.
E. Curtis, of Chicago, incurred a hotel bill of
f U8 in two wetks. Bsidts this, the com
mission in its corporate capacity had a par
lor at $10 a dey, or $140.
There was a good deal of money spent be
tween New York and San Francisco and
from thenCe to Mexico ia "supplies," which
included all sorts of eating and drinking,
extras and substantial. The commission
evidently euffered for want of food between
San Francisco and Mciico, for mere ample
supplies were provided on the return trip.
Tje two men and the boy left the Mexican
capital December 14 with öi worth ot pro
visions. The next day additional supplies
worth $12 were procured. It cost -3 to
switch the car El Paso, and ?150 for tickets
to New Orleans additional tu the 35 a day
for the car. At El Paso tho commissary de
partment added 22 worth of provisions and
1.50 worth was tdded at Houston, and the
commission got to New Orlean cn the Jls',
so that two men and a boy ale an
even 1C0 worth cf fjod i:i a

their car and ?i lor a carriage to go and see

at New Orleans coat $2 J.50, besides a hotei
bill for eleven days of $374 70, and the hotel
servants were tipped $10. The stenographer
at New Orleans cost ?:)1. 70, and type writer
work 22 25. From New Orleans the Secre
tary sent an abstract of the Commissioners'
repoit to a paper in New York and one in
Chicago, which appeared in print before the
report itself was opened in the State Depart
meat. Tickets to Havana cost 175. The
commission paid 1,417.50 for its Pullman
car, being .".5 a day for forty-one and
cne-half days.
Altogether it was a very delightful trip to
the three Republicans. We would like to
know what gocd resulted from it. Perhaps
after the Republican organs set through
with'OId Jake Thompson," as they call him,
they will demonstrate the benefits to accrue
to the country from this expensive junketing
trip of these Republicans at Government
In Indiana and other States of the North
the colored Republican is gradually getting
his eyes open to th fact that the whites of
his party have been simply using him as a
tool. A4 they bad for him to do was to vote.
Thn was amusing, perhap?, for a few years,
but the dividends were not large when the
timo came around to parcel out the spoils.
The whites took all the offices, while the col
ored man looked on with his finger in his
mouth. During the la3t year the colored
Republicans have been breaking away from
the party harness and uniting with the
Democrat;. Not only is this true in Indiana
and other Northern States, but we find the
disaffection has reached the colored men of
Texas. . A Dallas, Tex., corresondent aajs
that this break in the Republican ranks is
taking dace in that State. Before the elec
tion the white Republicans instilled into the
minds of the negroes that they would be re
1 enslaved in the event of Democratic success.
The course of events since March I has bsen
such es to remove the delusion, and the ne
gro's are becoming politically mutinous to
their former white leaders and coachem.
It Eferas that a very intelligent colored
preacher, by the came of Carson, is heading
the Texas revolt from Republicanism. He la
regarded as the foremost colored man in
Texas in potr t of education add influence.

the following very remarkable letter from

Ths birk Sonna.Tg, with eevenl css?3 of

the authoriti3. This is but the forerunner
of what will soon be a not uncommon oc
currence, and our country can not Ii(pe to
-rx the dread scourue. Bat we caa ward
off" its ievere3t ravages by immediately
placing every city, town and hamlet in the
best possible sanitary condition.
No time should be lost in doing this, and
our Boards of Health ought everywhere to
take hold cf the matter actively and see that
needed preparations are made for the visit
of cholera. The streets and alleys ia all the
citits are in a most filthy condition.
Tte garbsge accumulated during the
long montha of cold weather
is encountered in tho alleys, on vacant lots,
and -often iu tb? ttreets of Indianapolis,
while piles of otr.il and rubbish are a com

moved ere the warm weather sets in and
starts decomposition this parbage will soon
be masses of rottenness so foul as to poison
the air we breathe and water we drink, thus
in itself breeding disease. If cholera comes
wiihsnch conditions prevailing to fivor its
epread we can look tor a pestilence o sweep

known b?f re.

and the majority of physicians say we can
not escape its prevalence incur midt the
coming summer. But that they will take
the needed precautionary measures to make
the ravages of the disease s light as possible
is another matter. The msjoriiy prefer
waiting until the eccurge is here, or at least
to run the rik cf its not appearing at all.
The authorities, therefore, should act at
once; act S3 energetically and efficiently aa
possible in having yard, alleys and streets
cleaned, and in taking such other step3 as
are needed toward off disease. Thi3isthe

When he went Into office he carried with
birn into office under him the men who had
voted for his electors. He knew that the
men who voted for him did not mean for
thote who voted agamst him to remain In
control of the Government. That would
have been the minority ruling the majority,
and thus moocrchy would have taknu the
place cf the KepuMic. Jackson understood
that his election meant the eelection of his

I Communicated, i
Your Washington eorrtsDondent, Mr. Carr,
disposes o' ths twin humbugs civil service
reform law and tenuie of offica act. Tae
.civil service law was pern.itted to b9 parsed
by the Republicans, as they well knew there
was nothing in the Jaw to prevent them
iiot:i reaiovicg and appointing whom they
pUas-ed. Bat no tb-y use it to scire Dem
ocrats into LfepiriK Republicans in office
aller the paop.'e have 4id turn them out
not merely the President acd those
whm he may appoint, but all thjse
holding under his immediate appointees.
The election did not mean a fat postolfice for
some man in the community and turn for
the workers to stand an examination for
place under him. but it meant that he is
simply the e?ent of the pfople.to put them
out. The civil service law is not a penal
law except ai to political assessments noth
ing else. Any law that is not a penal law is
simply a permlsiive law. That is, permits
the party authorized to do a certain thing m
a certain way. In other words, the. law
in reality neither commands nor prohibits,
but eimply authorizes, permits or sanctions.
Theiefor, we hope that all persons appoint
ed and who have appointments to make will
have the nerve to maks their appointments

As the heeds of departments at Washing

dier would like to call President Cleveland's
attention to Section 1.731 of the Revised
Statutes cf the United States, which regune3
that soldiers honorably discharged shall be
preferred in appointments, and that the
civil service law specially recognizes that
section as being in force, and I would sug
gest that the President call the especial at

Indiana Artists.
A. 'arge and interesting collection of paint,
ings by Indiana artists in Munich is ex
hibited in Ecglish's Meridian Street Hall,
under the auspices of the Bohe Club. The
exhibit will be formally opened this morn
irg, and those interested in art, as well as
those who feel a pride in the success of
Indiana talent in this direction,
will lend their presence during
the two weeks of the exhibition. In the col
lection there are several paintings of more
than ordinary merit, and among these es
recially is a representation entitled "Tne
Boatman," by T. C. Steele, a name lArailiar
to the majority of our cittzeus. Tue artist's
itea was well reproduced in this picture,
acd the brawny arm, tbe strong features in
the face tf the sturdy boatman as he
looks out to tea while he rows a:ross
the hay, would attract attention
though surrounded by fnnnnierabl9 paint
ings cf note This picture is owned by the
Bavarian Government and was purchased
for the Bavarian National Art Gallery. A
Dumber of paintirgs oy W. T. Richards, of
Ai ilerton. William Forsythe of this c'ty,
and oihfr artists are on exhibition, audit
will well repay our citiz?ns to attend daring
the two weeks exhibit. The catalogue of the
exhibition is a stndy in itself. Mrs. John
M Jcdih. Miss Harriet Ncble and Miss
Mary Raridan will have chare of the art
exhibit room to day.
The Meeting Postponed.
Dr. E. 8. Elder, Secretary of the State
Beard of Health, yesterday received a tele
giam from Dr. Loraax, Preeident of the
board, stating that, in accordance with the
views of a majority of the board, tbe meeting
called for to-morrow has beea postponed till
the 15'h inet. It i understood that the
pestponemer t is made that the board may
acquaint themselves thoroughly with the
merits of the respective candidates for the
Secretaryship, the great priza for which a
number of the Esculapian disciples are no
contending. The Sanitary News, speaking
of the possible removal of Dr. Eider at tbe
coming meeting of the board, eays: "If Dr.
Elder is removed, he may well rest upon the
laurels he has won a a sanitarian. Always
active in advanc'ng the sanitary interests of
Indiana, he has been no Jess active in na
tional sanitary council. His siuitary in
spection of all the schcols in Indiana stands
to-day as tbe brightest accomplishment as
yet achieved in that direction. When the
new Sfcretary takes up the duties of the
office, he will have reason to feel grateful to
Dr. Elder for the strong impulso which h
' has given to public htalth work in Indiana."
The Council in Special Seeslon Adopts
D. A. Bolen' Plans for a Uesr
Market-House and City Hall.
The Council met last niget tn special ses
sion to consider the plana, pe:icition3 and
drawings cf the proposed market-hanss an J
City Hall as ricarJ y i. A. Bolen. Tho
absentees were Messrs. Cowie, Downey,
Moran, Rees. Reiuecke. Trussler, Whartoa
acd Weil.
The call for the meeting w5 read, after
which Mr. Bo'cu, who was present on invi
tation cf the Mayor, exhibited to the Council
his plans end specifications. He Led with
him drawings Rivin? a prosrecUre viw of
the four sid s rf the building, ad sho'Tiu4
how the f-niirs would look whsa wholly
coiiit leu d In submitting the epcihcatiana
Mr. IJcleu went into details, giving the cost
of almost every item. Tne assembly hall, ha
taid, would teat about 4,(0: perrons, and It
was light! d by windows instead of by a skr
liuht. aa was contenmla'ed by the ordinance
wnich was repealed by the present one. The
ccst of the main building with
sewerage would be 125,0.14. while tr?e build
ing proper would ctst $111,50 1. Some dis
cussion arose as to whether the General Af-
eiubly hall would be large enough, but it
was of fiiort duration. One member thought
it ehould have a f eating capacity of t',(X if
Indianapolis ever expected to eeenre any of
the National Conventions. The Mayor
raid it would be much larger than tb
Music Hall in Cincinnati, which wa
not near as mammoth a etructure as
the good people of that rity represented it t.i
be. The pirns were finally unanimously
adopted, and it wes rteolved that the Build
ing Committee, of which the Mayor is to b
Chairman, hhould be appointed at the regu
lar meeting of the Council on Monday night
by joint iemt:on.
Mr. Haoh otftrnl a resolution that John
B. Don' circus be permitted to
give two days' exhibition in tnis
city during th9 present month without
being compelled to procure a licenee.
Mr. Hantrh said that Mr. Doris had win
tered his show here at an enormons expenss
and tbe city Lad derived no little beneht
thereby, hence it was no more than right for
the Council to depart from the customary
rule in this case. The matter was rfrrd
until the next meeting, when a specisl ordi
nance will in all probability ba passed grant
icg Mr. Doris the right to give his eihioi
lion without a liceme.
The Council the adjourned.
An Interesting Operation In Surjrery.
Yesterday afternoon a surgical op?ratton
was performed by Drs. ComiEgore and Man
ker that will evidently attract large atten
tion in the professior. A cancerous growth
was removed by the application of the knife
from the tongue of a patient. It differed
from the trouble sill cting General Grant
only that it was located on the left instead
of the right side of the tongue. It wea
fully B3 larse and aggravatfug as
Grant's 'lliction when Dr. Pancoast
acvlsed surgery, t Lor.g Rranch last s.i tu
rner. The description o( Grant's d;tea:e, as
it appeared, tn nieoical journals of wa;e
months ago, is the same as that of the tumor
extirpated jcs'.erday. If the Indianapolis
patient recovers, there :3 no.res.son wny th
life of General Grant miut not have been
saved, or be advarcd. The eurferer is a rea
sonably well ire'erved mn of fifty-eight
times in his life rad len some
what intemperate. The growth was lirst
diecosered about 'ght mouths ago,
but'wfcs treated by Joral physicians
until a few days eince. when, in resp nse to
their advice, tbe patient came to Dr. Coaiia
gore, who pronounced it epithelioma, and
determined to use the knif.
Aflf r ananglng the patient on an opsr
sticg table, and having made several appli
cations cf cocaine, a thick ligature wa
tasied through the center and an inch from
the end of the tongue, so aä to be abla to
draw it out aa far as possible, the mouth be
ing kept open with a sag. Grasping the
cancerous growth with a stout pail of doable
tenaculum, the tongue was diawn far out.
A fharp, staight-point bistoury was then in
troduced far back and down to tbe base
of the growth aud carried into tbe medi&n
line and well forward almost to the pjint,
rtrxovittg almost the ebtire halt of tbe
toiigne, trreat care being ten to keep well
ahead of direaeed tissue. The growth was
rucst effectually and thoroughly removed.
The bemcrTbaiie was profuse and necessita
ted the ligation of three arteries. The
bleeding then shopped, except a little oozing,
which was checked by the application ol ab
solute alcohol. No Rtifsthetic was given ou
account of the blood that might strangle the
Eenry George at Plymouth Church.
Henry George, whose book on ' Progress
and Poverty" is called by the London Times
be most dangerous book of the century,"
is to lecture In this city at Plymouth Chnrch
on Wednesday evening, April 8. It will be
something to see and hear a man wno has
written an economfc work that has been
more widely circulated than any similar
werk ever was: something tn tee and bear a
man who electrified the EuroDean world
from the Hebrides to the Adriatic, and set
presses of both continents going upon con
troversial literature in relation to his re
markable doctrines; something to see and
hear a man cf whose appearance in Birming
ham, EDgland, the 01, of that city, said:

A strange story.
