Representative Bynum's Plea for Relier From the Burdens of Patronage. E 4anits I z Made Illegal lre Congressmen to Aek for Friends. Legislators Have Other Duties to Perform "esidee Getting iPlles sor OasHtateente -The Pesldens'a Frease~ O.t. WAsumroT.N. May 14.--'I would like to see every senator and member of congress relieved from all connection with orrespon aibility for appointments to ofaee." Rep resentative Bynum, of Indiana, thus em phatically expresses his opinion about the pressure which is brought to bear upon leeg islators to secure places for their oonatita. eats. "The truth is," he continued, "the time is iot far distant when a law will be passed making it illegal for a senator or representative to solicit any office or to have anything to do with an appointment unless he is called upon by the head of the department to give advice or make a sug testion. It will then be understood that this information, tendered by request, is not to be considered as having any more weight than advice or suggestion coming from anybody else." When asked if the political status of senators and mem. here would be injured if they were deprived of the power of patronage, he responded emphatically: "No, sir. We would be stronger if we had no offioes to dispense. The only trouble I ever had in my district grew out of an appointment to office. A reform in the present system is impera lively demanded. A fewnincompoops think that senators and members are opposed to reformation. This is a mistake. The be lief that members are able with the use of patronage to secure nominations and elec tions is a serious error. Patronage, as it is called, is an element of weakness, and there is not a single member of the house who would not be infinitely stronger with his constituents without it. "The present custom originated when circumstances v ere different from now. Forty o- fifty years ego but few applicants could afford to come to Washington. The president and heads of the departments could secure but little information as to the character and qualifications of appli rants, except from members of congress. The custom rrobably originated more from the requests of the executive officers for information than from the importun ities and demands of congressmen, but the situation is now changed. Offices have been multiplied and made more lucrative, and within twenty-four hours' ride from Washington are 40,000,000 of peovie. The population in congressional districts has been largely increased, so that the custom, which in other times wasee the only practi cable method, is a responsibility, too great to be borne now. senators and members of course are better acquainted with the situation in their states and districts, and their advice coold not be wholly dispensed with. "Under the present system our situation is this: While our recommendations are not binding in any degree upon heads of departments, they are so universally acted upon that our constituents are impressed with the belief that we control appoint ments. Under these circumstances we are compelled to fight to uphold them. If our recommendations are disregarded our con stituents either charge us with treachery or want of standing and influence. What ever reforms therefore are inaugurated must relieve us from responsibility. If the president and his cabinet can devise a new system that will give to applicants a full and equal hearing without forcing them to seek our aid and intercession I will not only make no objection, but will aid them in carrying the same out to the strict letter." It was not to be expected that the great body of office seekers now in Washington would take kindly to the announcement by the president that he would see no office seekers unless he sent for them. There has been grumbling at the down-town hotels, where most of the office-seeking army is encamped, but the grumblers find no sym pathizers except the hotel keepers and the proprietors of boarding houses. The out geing trains, crowded with patriots sor.y that they did not start for home weeks ago and stop the heavy expense to which they have been subjected since they began their hunt for places, prove that President Cleve land has been taken athis word. There have been a number of amusing incidents in connection with the orJer. A fat man from one of the southern states, who has been in Washington since March 4, and has made many a trip to the executivemansion, heard of the announcement early in the morning and came puffing down Newspaper row to ascertain it it were true. He bought a morning paper, and the first thing he saw was the president's declara tion under a "scare head." He read it a refully, folded up the paper, and then, in tones which faithfully indicated the state of his mind, he said to the newsman: "Does that man think he owns the White house?" The newsdealer had no opinions to dispose of, and the fat man waddled back to his lodgings to pack his grip. A prominent treasury official said this afternoon that the embargo placed upon the office seekers had made it necessary for him to dodge two prominent democrats from his state to-day. "One of them." he said in explanation, "i e a candidate for the postmesturehip in one of our principal cit ies. He spent a good deal of his time here after the inauguration of President Cleve land in looking after his candidacy. About two weeks ago he came to me for advice. He wanted to know whether it would be Letter for him to go to the White house at once with a letter from me and plead his cns4, or go home and return a fort night later with a friend of his who was intimately acquainted with the president and was willing to introduce him and put in a good word for him I told him that it seemed to me the wiser plan to go home and wait until his friend was ready to come to Washington. He took my advice. This morning he roturnod with his friend only to discover that the white house was closed to him. 1 have felt un happy ever since I saw the look of disgust which he wore when I met him this morn ing. Hereafter I shall try to avoid giving advice in political matters." It is predicted that one effect of Presi dent Cleveland's statement will be to in c'ease the number of callers upon oibinet officer. Under the present rules these of fleers are barred from the public on Tues days and Fridays, which are cabinet days, and some of them have hedrgd themaelves behind rules which effectually keen officee seekers at bay for several hours in the other working days of the week. It is reported that P:esident Cleve land is disposed to adhere strictly to thir purpose of the law of the last congress re specting the apr ointment of army olficore ms Indian agents, although the I olitcians are bringing strong influence to beo.r in favor of civilians, £hJ argument has beeni made to the president and to the secretary of the interior that in many of the reserva tions where the Indians have Lecome civil ized that the civilians can better serve the government ne Indian agents than the army officers. This is suggested of the Osagee and the Delawares. A few days ago an order was sent to the Indian commissioner for a list of how many of the fifty-eight agents should be civilians. The lists were prepared and submitted. There was a pro vision in the law of the rlat congress re specting the appointment of Indian agenrts to the effect that wherever it yas thought the government's service would be benetted by having civilians instead of army oflicers, that the president might exercise his dis cretion and a; point civilians. While the list that was sent to the president in cluded a number of recommendations in favor of appointing civilians it is not be lieved that these will) e many 3ltdl. eaenta aopointed 'wh ate aot miNlay offsets. t is known that in all the Hieio *rhees it was recosameaded that emny oaers be selected. THEY WANT A (UANOI. Colored Demoenets After the Otlces of Their Republlcan Brethren. Wamsarrrox, May 14.-The natiaonal se gro democratic league has addressed a letter to President Cleveland, which, after ,tleineing the republioan party for its treatment of the negro, says the league stood with the democratic party when it was routed in 1888, and those who received recognition were promptly chastised and summarily dismissed by the successful re tublioane. In the last campaign the nealro democrat in the ftao of insults and injuries of every kind, with voice, pen and beat energies, proclaimed for Grover Cleveland and reform. The letter re oites that the leagae is placed in a false 1labt before the country because of the failure so far to recognize them in the dis tribution of patronage, and asks the presi dent if the places held by colored repub licans who have been and are now hostile to the league and the party with which it is identified, are to remain longer in the hands of political enemies. Drewry's Framudulent Pension Claims. WASmo'nroT, May 14.-It is stated at the pension office that up to last Tuesday the pension examinels now in Norfolk, Va., investigating the claims filed by Pension Attorney Drswr., had completed fourteen cases, all of which were found to be irrer ular or fraudulent. Pension officials have been searohing the files for clnims filed by Drewry, which had been allowed, and so far 160 were found and forwarded to the examiuere at Norfolk. No computation of the mnaents paid on these claims has been made but all of them were filed under the act of June 27, 1890, which allows $12 per month as a maximum rate, it is probable the average will fall below $200 each. Drewry is now serving a one year term in jail for fraudulent tranenotions in pension cares. CancellUng Uantsued Bonds. WAswraoToN, May 14.-The recent ree ommendation of Acting Register Smith for the destruction of $152,000,000 of unissuned regietered four and one-half rer cent bonds of the funded lonn of 1891, has been ap. proved by the secretary of the treasury and the bonds will be destroyed in accerdance with the recommendation. Specimens of the same are to be retained after the can cellation. louanoed After Iwenty-eight Years Service WASHINGTON. May 14.-The announce ment comes from Indianapolis that Samuel E.

Plain truth is good enough for Hood's Sarsa pariila. ho need of sensationalism. Hood's Cures. A Book in the Etruscan Language. The discovery of a book, or rather of linen sheets, in the Etruscan language, an undeoiphered tongue, has been lately made by Prof. Krall, of Vienna. Forty years ago a mummy was brought from Egypt by an Austrian traveler. It was wrapped with linen bands, which Brngsch Pasha thought to be inscribed with Ethiopia char actes a, and bir Richard nlu ton thought was Nabatheon. A few known words in the Ethiopic text enabled Prof. Krall to iden tify the manusoript as Etruscan. Etruria was the home of unogury, the gleat Etrus can work on divination being in twelve books. Hardly anything is known of the origin of the people, but Prof. Snyca thinks that it cannot bo long before the mysteries of this manuscript are revealed, and another page of history laid bare. eome Venerable Plants. The Egyptian museum at Cairo contains a collection of dried plants remarkable for their age and preservation. The had been used in remote ages to adorn the dead. The F. ench soientist, V. Loret, has published a book under the title of "The Pharaonic Flora," in which he describes this wonder ful herbarium. Many of these plants are more than 5,000 years old. Before they were arrancrd in the Cairo herbarium they were soaked in warm water and freshly dried and p:eseed. Among them are flowers of the pomegranate, the red poppy, blue and white loras, several speciesof the mallow, and leaves of the leek, onion and celery, with which the dead Egyptians were buried in those days. Silk Manufacturing. According to the census figures the silk manufacturing industry in this country has grown wonderfully in the past ten years. In 1890 goods to the value of $69,000,000 were turned out, as against $34,500.000 in 1880. The number of hands employed also increased from about 31,000 to 51,000, and the number of spindles has expanded from 508,137 to 1,264,7A9. Mrs. ,Srah Muir Of Minneapolls.
