It lines seenTioinc that our whole
system is antagonistic to anything like
the i tablishment of permanent offices
in this country, or making a distinct
class of officeholders, for that would in
volve the necessity of having a civil pen
lion list as well as one for the soldiers
disabled In the army.
Why, Mr. President, the difference be
tween a monarchy and B republic is sini
ply this that in a monarchy all the
olliees are hxed and permanent ; in a
republic they Are held, at the will and
pleasure of the people. In monarchies
the kings and nobility are all hereditary,
the Church is established, and the offices
are held permanently by a favored class,
who are paid for their services as long
as thev are aide to render duty, and
when they cannot they are pensioned
Every officeholder In a monarchy is a
pensioner, in a rcjiuDiic the oihces are
held at the will ami pleasure of the peo
ple, who are the, source ol all power
Thev can remove and they can appoint,
ami the only security tho people have
in a republic for fidelity in t lie ilischarcc
of public duty is the amenability of their
servants to them
Rotation in Office, change, is an abso
lute necessity. Our whole system ab
hors perpetuity, dotation and change,
the frequent examination ot the ser
vant's accounts, and tho frequent re
moval of the servant himself, is an essen
tial element to secure a perpetuity of
free institutions. Is it not so? Are the
people for making offices permanent, for
establishing a caste of officeholders in
this country and shutting everybody
else out? Have they not a right to
change the officers? Why, sir, ill
monarchies and military governments
title and rank lire everything, but in re
publics, olliees and public employment
are the badges of honor and distinc
tion. The high places in the Govern-
menl are reserved by the people as a
special reward of merit for the most dis
tinguished ability a, id the most eminent
public services, and the small olliees are
of equal Importance to the smaller men.
A little consulship or clerkship is quit;!
as important to a inah who holds it as
a seat in the Cabinet or a foreign mis
sion is to the great man.
There has been a great deal of nonsen
sical talk about this bill. I tell you. Mr.
President, the bill before us amounts to
nothing. It is all fox fire ami no nvoro.
It can do no good, and may be produc
tive of grCat harm. Whv, sir, the onlv
reform, the surest way to reform that
we can possible have, is to put de em,
honest men into the places of the Gov
ernment, and let them bring the Govern
ment Itself back to the precepts and
practices of its earlier and better days.
These arc my views. Our civil service
would not be a bad one if it WSJ honest
Is and fairly administered. It is not of
the patronage, of the power of the Pres
ident that the people complain ; it Is of
the abuses of both. It is not that the
President appoints his friends to posi
tions, but it is that assessments have
been made for the purpose of raising
a corruption fund to debauch the people
at the polls. It is that the patronage
has been farmed out to gn-at bisaea in
the States, to be used in their own inter
est, or for their party in controlling the
elections in their States. It is against
boaslsm that the people have revolted.
There can In- no doubt about it.
Suppose you put it to yonr constituents,
Mr. President. I should like to .see the
Democratic member of Ckngrees, if We
had the power, who would vote for a bill
the effect of which would be, when the
have had a fall swine, and it is time
that they should go. Sir, is there any
thing mi earth that corrupts men Hire
long poaaeiwion of power and the tempta
tion Incident to it . I have often thought
that if there was any one part of the
Lord's Praver Itetter than another, it
was that which said, " Lead us not into
temptation, and if it were allowable 1
would add to that, nor keep us exposed
to it too long." This party has had
power much too long for the good
of the country, much too long for its
own good faith and honor.
-Mr. President, the onlv reform possi
ble is a total change. The country has
been relying on one side so long that it
has at last turned over. I do not look
at the late elections as so much a Demo
cratic victory as a Republican defeat.
It is not that the country has suddenly
become in love with the Democracy, but
it is thoroughly disgusted with the Re
publicans; ami if the Democrats are
wise and moderate, and just, they will
be able to rally all these elements of op
position in 1KH4, and ride into power
upon the tidal wave of this popular in
dignation. There is no sort of doubt
al, ut that. It looks to me that it is aln
solutclv certain that we shall come into
xiwer iu lKHf,. These men understand
it, and thev are putting their house in
order. Shall we pujt-wbst ructions in
our way to cleaning out the whole thing?
I am for a clean sweep; I am for a house
cleaning from garret to cellar; lam for
ferreting out all these old rats who have
been in the treasury so lone; that thev
know where the ripest cheeses are and
the best kind of cheeses, too; I am for
pouring water In their holes and bring
ing the last one of them from tho bottom
Of his berth.
I'he only way to reform Is to put a
good, honest Democratic President in in
1884; then turn on the hose and give
him a good hickory broom and tell him
to sweep the dirt away. That is practi
cal sense, that is honesty. I feel it to be
so at any rate. Gentlemen talk about
Democrats having set this example. It
is no such thing. Jacksou put his friends
in and turned his enemies out; Jefferson
so did to some extent. All honest and
sensible men have done the same thing;
but none of those Presidents ever raised
a corruption fund, and no one of them
ever farmed out the patronage of a State.
Never was such a thing done either by
Pierce or Buchanan. Old Harrison
issued an order forbidding it in all the
departments, and making it a cause of
the removal of the chief and of the clerk.
That was because of some little scandal
that had grown up agaiiiRt Van P.uren.
Mr. President, I am perfectly satisfied
that the Democrats are coming in in
1884. This great battle that has just
taken place has been a battle between
the people and their own Government.
The question Is whether the people were
able to turn out their own servants when
they had a mind to. They have won the
first battle, and they w ill "follow up that
success until their victory is eomnlntw
..till 111,.,' It.,,'., ,,ul,.f..,l I..1

and an honest administration; and I am
not, for one, seeking to place any ob
structions in the way of that party when
it comes in. I Want to make a clean
sweep of the whole thing. Give us full
room and a fair experiment, gentlemen,
and that will be the reform that the
country wants, for there is no other re
form possible except a thorough and
complete change from top to bottom.
This is demanded for the good of the
country, and this the people are deter
mined to have, and will have.

LORE FOR THE LITTLE ONES.
The Boy Who Was Dissatisfied.
Oscar was a boy who generally dislik
ed to get up In the morning, tho more so
as he had to rise early and split wood for
his mother's fires. There was a little, old,
withered fairy, who had taken a fancy
to Oscar w hen he was a baby, who used
to come and wake him at daybreak.
"Get Up, ".-ear," she would say, "and
see the sun rise. "
"1 don't like to see the sun rise," he
would answer.
"Get up, Isear, and see the dew on the
grass and flowers."
i ni not fond of looking at the dew."
"Get up, Oscar, and be bright and
sprv, or ou will never make vour for
tune." "I don't want to make my fortune,"
Oscar would sleepily answer.
Hut the fairy would tease and worry
him until she got him up, and then he
wouhlslowly put on his clothes, half wash
his face, partly comb his hair, slouch
down stairs, anil lazily begin to spilt his
wood.
One morning, while he was slowly
splitting wood, an idea came into his
head. As be was too hir.v to vet rifl of
Democrats come In m 1086, to prevent the it, he let it speak for itself.

Then Oscar wished to be a locomotive
engine, so that he could run a long dis
tance and see a great ueai oi me wuuu.
In an instant he found himseir on tne
rails drawing a train of cars, running at
the rate of forty miles an hour, and look
ing down on the cowcatcher.
But it was not long before he learned
that there was no fun in being a locomo
five engine as he could never get off the
rails and could never stop when he saw
anvthing that pleased or interested him,
and at the end of every journey be was
shut up with the other engines in a
dark house, from which none of them
could stir.
Then he wished to be a bird.
"The birds," he said, "have an easy
and pb isant time," with nothing to do
but to fly about as thoy please, and to
eat when they feel hungry. '
So the fairy changed him into a largo
and handsome bird.
Put he soon learned that it was quite
as much work for a bird to use his wings
as for a boy to use his hands and feet.
He also learned that the birds are put
to DO little troublejo And the food that
is proper for them and that they have
many enemies, of which men are not the
least.
When he had been nearly frightened
out of liisjits by a man who hunted
him w ith a trim, Oscar became disgust
ed with the life of a bird and wished to
be a sauirrel, as he had noticed the free
and easy life of the squirrel, and thought
that they must have a good time, ir any
bodv had.
After telling him that he had lietter
wish to be changed to a goose, the old
fairy snapped her fingers, and in a twin
kle i scar was running up a tree, with a
bushy tail curling over his furry coat.
Sad to say, he found the life of a
stjuirrel to he even worse than that of a
bird, as the squirrels had even more
enemies than the birds, and even more
trouble in getting their fowls and lay
ing it away for the winter.
Be ahw! found it to be a fact that it
tired squirrels to run ami jump quite
as much as it tires hoys to walk or to
work.
Another wish brought the old fairy to
the limb of the tree, on which he sat
gnawing the shell of a very hard nut.
" What do vou want now?" she asked
" I want to be a bov again." replied
Oscar, "and to have nothing at all to
do."
In a moment he found himself dressed
in his own clothes and seated in an easy
chair with a rest for his feet, and witb
a bowl of porridge on a table by his
side.
There was a fence around him, so
close that he could not move more than
his length any direction.
On tbe other side of the fence were a

filled with apples, pears, plums, cherries,
strawberries, raspberries and all sorts of
luscious and tempting fruits and vege-
taliles. tie eoulil see tnem whenever he
opened his eyes and could smell them
without taking the trouble to open his
eyes; but the wire fence was in the way,
so that he' could not taste or touch
them.
He stood this for a while, trying to be
lieve that it was a very nice thing to
have nothing to do; but at last lie be
came so tired of his porridge, and the
desire to get some of tne fruit in the or
chard and garden grew so strong that he
wished a big wish.
In an instant the old fairy was at his
(dhow.
" You cannot get at the fruit," she said,
"because there is a fence in the way,
just as there is always some sort of a
fence in the way w lien we want anything
nice iu this world."
" But I can climb the fence," said Os
car. " That would be w ork." replied the
fairy. " It would be doing something,
and you were placed here because you
Winded to have nothing at all to do."
The fairy left him. and Oscar thought
he would climb the fence, till his pock
ets with fruit, and then get bank to his
easy chair and enjoy his dainties.
He found the fence a hard one to
climb, but he got to the top at last, and
was going down on the other side when
something happened.
The fence then melted away, the or
chard and garden vanished, and be
found himself at the woodpile iu the
back yard and was content to stay there.

Railroad Land Grants.
DILI, PROVIDING FOa FOKFEITPRE.
Washington, D. Q, January. In
the report which accompanies the bill
introduced in the Senate to-dav by Mr.
Garland, providing for the forfeiture of
railroad grants in certain eases, the
Judiciary Committee says: Without un
dertaking to decide whether, in all grants
by the United states to a railroad, Con
gress can declare this forfeiture, the
pommitttee consider it best to adopt
sonic measure that would avoid this
question and place the parties in an atti
tude toward each other that would in
sure to each fair dealing and justice, as
far as can be done. They propose to
direct the Attorney General to institute
proper judicial proceedings against any
railroad companies that he may have
reason to believe are in default as" to the
conditions of their grants, to bring about
forfeiture and secure the rights of the
Government to the lands. This proceed
ing, in the nature of information, will
bring the supposed defaulting company
into court, to he heard in defense against
forfeiture; and the court can enter such
judgment or decree as in its opinion will
secure the Government, not merely in
declaring forfeiture, if need be, but in
declaring a resumption of the lands
granted. Appeal will be allowed, as iu
cases in courts.
A FIFTEEK-YEAB-OLD GIRL DIVES SEV
ERAL TIMES TO RESCUE A DROWNING
BOY AND THEV SETS ABOUT. SKILL
FULLY TO BEOOVEB HIS BODY.
New York Sun.
Capt. William Hamilton, who owns a
produce boat running to this city, lives
in a neat hill-side cottage in the village
of Northport, Long Island. From his
front stoop one may get a glimpse of
the blue Connecticut hills across the
Sound. In front of his house is a road,
and from the road to the ground slopes
suddenly about forty feet to a narrow
beach. On the afternoon of July 7, the
Captain's daughter, Emma, was sitting
under the trees that shade the slope.
She was not 16 until last Thursday, and
she does not appear to be even so old as
that. William Beebe, the 15 year old
son of Captain Henry Beebe, a Sandy
Hook pilot, was in town visiting an
uncle. He came along and invited Miss
Emma to go up the beach to the bathing-houses,
and join a number of women
and children who were in the water. She
declined to go and the boy went on.
Prettv soon she heard the children:
"There's a boy drowning!" As that was
common amoug the children when play
ing in the water, she paid no attention
to it. Soon, however, she heard a woman
cry:
"For God's sake, is there no one on
this beach that can swim
She knew then that somebody was
indeed drowning. It was nearly 100
rods to the sand point vvjuire the bathers
were, but she reached the place in time
to see young Beebe rise to the surface
tor the last time. He was about three
rods from the beach. Hastily throwing
ott her shoes, she pmnged in, and swim
ming to the place, as nearly as she could
nidge, she dived several times to the bot
torn, but she tailed to hnd him. 15v this
time John Murray had reached! the
beach. A boat was launched, Miss
Hamilton got into it, and with Murray
went to the place where Beebe had gone
down, being able to judge more accurate
ly where it was than when she was
swimming. Leaning over the stern of
the boat, she put her face under water
so thnt a clear view of the bottom
should not be cut off by the surface
waves and rinnles.
When she discovered the boy lying
motionless on tne sano and undoubtedly
quite dead, owing to the time that hail
(dapsed, she made Murray hold the boat
over it with an oar while she went ashore
and got a heavy oyster rake. This she
carried to the boat and with it the body
was brought to the surface. Efforts
were made on the shore to revive him
but he had probably died before the
boat was launched.
The courage and enercv Miss Hamit
ton had displayed were tfie talk of the
country around. Captain J. L. Knight.
of this city, a relative of the boy. and
Captain Jesse Carll, a shipbuilder of the
village, started the project of making a
present K) ine gin ior her hravery. A
subscription paper was quietly eircula
ted.
Christmas night was selected to make
the annual presents to the Sunday-school
pupils. There was a union gathering at
the Methodist Church. The building
was crowueu. Alter csanta t.taus had
climbed out of the window of a house
made for the purpose and given away
luiuiy ncaiiuiui tilings to tne children
T V L) 1 . ,
miHjw . o. .vcKeriy stepped up in
trout ot the pulpit. lie said giving of
presents was a fitting service in memory
of the life that had been given that ail
might live. Nothing was more precious
i nan lire; nothing more noble than self
sacrifice to save it. The village had
been called last summer to mourn the
death ot a lad known and loved
all. But. great as was the grief, there
was a lifrht shed upon it by the heroic
efforts of a young girl to save the bov as
he st ruggled with death. The whole' v it
lage had felt that it was a deed worthy
of something more than praise. They
hd procured a gift for her, but they
knew that it could not add to the satis
faction which follows an act like hers.
It would show to her, however, the esti
mation in which she was held by her
neighbors. The heroine, he said, of

Hamilton, then stepped forward. A
gold hunting case watch, with a chain
and seal was given to her. She bowed

Inside the case are engraved the
following words:

Northport, L. I.,
A a tribute of admiration
For her heroic effort to
Save life on the day of
