Dr. E. R. Huteliins, commissioner
of labor statistics for Iowa, devoted
his time last fall to canvassing Iowa
for the tattooed circus. The tax
payers of Iowa were taxed to pay
his salary. If Clarkson is honest in
his war upon Auditor Brown and his
deputies and their prices, hadn't he
better ask Dr. Hutchins to refund to
the state the $125 he took for time

President Cleveland will be mighty
popular with those who went to,
Washington to attend the inaugura

out on the steps at the White House
this morning and says, "Boys, what
will you take?" (in the way of an
office, of course, because democrats
don't drink). To the republicans of
the treasury department, who have
made a forced balance in the books
of $247,7G7,341.fiG, we expect to hear
him say: "Now, boys, where have

Tlie Ridgeway Posteffice.
Until Monday last we had supposed
that Hon. D. O. Aaker had resigned
the position of postmaster at Ridge
way for the purpose of securing a
drug stoic there. Now, we are in
formed that the change was made
for political reasons, at a time when
the republicans: were lull in the faith
that the tattooed man of Maine
would be president. It is well known
that Mr. Aaker was appointed when
a republican, but that the corrupt
practices of the republican party
were such that he felt, constrained
to leave it, and that he did no more
against it than every republican
postmaster has done against the
democratic party. For this the re
publican president, with the approv
al of A. lv. Bailey, B. T. Barfoot
and Tom V pdegraff, removed Mr.
Aaker, and appointed in his place,
solel}' for political lea^ous, the pres

belief of the people that the removal
was unjust, refused to become surety

ALBANY, N. Y.. Feb. 27.—The fol
lowing is the reply addressed by
Cleveland to the silver coinage ad
vocates in congress:
To HON. A. J. WABXER
MEMBERS OP THE FORTT-EIOHTH
GENTLEMEN—The letter which I
have had the honor to receive from
you invites and indeed obliges me
to give expression to some grave
public necessities, although in ad
vance of a moment when they would
become objects of my official care
and partial responsibility. Your
solicitude that my judgment shall
hare been carefully and deliberately
formed, is entirely just and 1 accept
the suggestion in the same friendly
spirit in which it has been made. It
is also fully justified by the nature
of the financial crisis which under
the operation of an act of congress
Feb. 28,1878, is now close at hand.
By compliance with the requirements
of that law all the vaults of the Fed
eral treasury have been and are
heaped full of silver coins which are
now worth less than 85 per cent of
the dollar prescribed as the unit of
value in section 14 of the act of Feb.
12,1873, and which with the silver
certificates representing such coin
are receivable for all dues, being
thus receivable while also constantly
increasing in quantity at the rate of
$28,000,000 a year. It has followed
of necessity that the flow of gold in
to the treasury has been steadily di
minished. Silver and silver certifi
cates have been displaced mid are
now displacing gold, and the sum of
gold in the Federal treasury now
available for the payment of gold
obligations of the United States and
for the redemption of United States
notes, called greenbacks, if not al
ready encroclied upoE is perilously
near such encroachment. These are
facts which do not admit of differ
ence of opinion and call for no argu
ment. They have been forwarded
to the United States in official report
from every secretary of the treasury
from 1878 until now. They are
plainly affirmed in the last Decem
ber report of the present secretary
of the treasury to the speaker of the
present house of representatives.
They appear in the official records of
this congress and in the records of
the New York clearing house, of
which the treasury is a member and
through which the bulk of the re
ceipts and payments of the Federal
government and country pass. These
being the facts of our present condi
tion aud our danger, our duty to
avert that danger would seem to be
plain. I hope you concur with me
and the great majority of our fellow
citizens in deeming it desirable at
the present juncture to maintain aud
coutinue in use tho mass of burly
old coin, as well as the mass of silver
already coined. This is possible b*
the present suspension of the pur
chase of coinage silver. I am not
aware that by any other method it is
possible. It is of momentous im
portance to prevent the two metals
parting company to prevent the in
creasing displacement Of gold by
the increasing coinage of silver to
prevent the disuse of gold in the
custom house of the United States
in its dnily business with the people
to prevent the ultimate expulsion of
gold'by silver. Such a financial cri
sis as these events would certainly
precipitate, were it not to follow
upon so long a period of commer
cial depression, would involve the
people in every city and state in tin
union in prolonged and disastrous
trouble. The revival of business
enterprise and prosperity,so tmhnt
ly desired and apparently so near,
would be hopelessly postponed
Gold would be withdrawn to its
hoarding places, and unprecedented
contraction in the actual volume of
our currency would speedily take it
place. The saddest of all—iu every
workshop, mill, factory, store, and
ou every* railroad and farm, tin
wages of labor, already depressed,
would suffer still further depression
by scaling down of the purchasing
power of every so-called dollar paid
into the hand of toil. From llieso
impending calamities it is surely th
most patriotic and grateful duty of
the lepiesentutivcs of the people to
deliver them. I am. gentlemen, with
sincere respect, your fellow citizen.
