The Impression has prevailed for some months past that the Senate would not confirm the appointment of King; hence this very weighty indorsement. This impression has grown out of the fact that it has been from the first an open secret that Mr. King was appointed at the instigation of Tom Ander son, and that his appointment was in the in terest of the Returning Board. Indeed, the President said as much to our eminent fellow citizen, Mr. Charles Gayarre, a few days after Mr. King's nomination. Mr. Gayarre was an applicant for the office of Naval Of t ficer, which position was given to Jim Lewis, and he called to see the President to present in person his eminent claims. In the course l of conversation Mr. Hayes said in substance: - "I have appointed Judge King, an old citizen of your State, Collector at New Orleans. Your - people will say that the appointment is a re cognition of the Returning Board. Very well, my friends elsewhere will say that is right. I do not care for Louisiana." Thus we have Mr. Hayes' own confession that he appointed Jno. E. King in recognition of the services of the Louisiana Returning Board to the country. And Mr. King did not long hesitate to show to the country that he understood the motive of his appointment and his true relation to Anderson, Wells & Co. Assuming charge of the Custom-House, he delighted the public with his promised schemes of virtue and re form. He wrote a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury so soft and dulcet, so full of noble resolves and virtuous saws that the President and Cabinet were enchanted and the Secretary wrote back to the Collector that his letter was fully approved, and that all appointments made by him would be promptly confirmed. The Collector had said so much about reform; he had given out so many stories of stormy interviews between himself and Anderson and Wells, in which the two latter had always sneaked off like whipped curs, that the coun try now stood on tiptoe expecting to see the last member or attache or friend of the I Returning Board kicked down the Iron stairs of the granite building. How was public anticipation realized? The first thing we heard was that an efficient officer, against whom no charge had been made, was ex- - pelled from the Important post of special i deputy, and that Mr. Tom Anderson, under in dictment for forgery, and as notorious a cor ruptionist as lives in Louisiana, was appoint ed in b is place. There was, of course, a general outburst of indignation. But Judge King's friends gave out the report that he was not responsible for the dismissal of Champlin and the appoint ment of Tom Anderson; that it was the doing of the President and Secretary of the Treas ury; and thus they somewhat calmed the public feeling toward King and concentrated it against Hayes and Sherman. John Sher man, however, tells a very different story. On being asked about the appointment of Anderson, he authorized the statement as coming from him that "every appointment asked for by Collector King had been made, and that neither the department nor the Pres ident had attempted to interfere with the ap pointments made in New Orleans." This, though the statement of Secretary Sherman, a man utterly unworthy of belief, has the internal evidenceof truth. The letters of Sherman to King telling him that any ap pointments he might make would be con firmed; Anderson's relations to King and the President's observations to Mr. Gayarre, all go to convince us that Gen. Tom Anderson, one of the most infamous of the Returning Board, indicted for forgery, and liable to in dict ment for having stolen eighty thousand dollars appropriated by the State for the im provement of Bayou Crocodile, is the chosen deputy of King, and was appointed at King's instigation. His confirmation by the Senate therefore, would be an indorsement of the Re turning Board and a disgrace to that august body. We think the citizens of New Orleans who signed Judge King's petition made a mistake. Not one of them, we believe, would under any circumstances, or for any purpose, give coun tenance to Tom Anderson or any of his fel lows; and yet they have asked the American Senate-that body in which such men as Webster, Clay, Calhoun and Davis once occu pied seats-to confirm in this important office the tool of Anderson, and thus recognize the legitimacy of the proceedings of the most in famous body that ever disgraced the country. It is to be regretted, we think, that this has boon done. The signers of King's petition recognized in him an amiable and well dis posed man; they doubtless believed the oppo sition to him was animated solely by office seekers eager for his place, and looking on the matter in that light, they give him the weight of their names. But in truth, it were better for the country that any man in the Radical party should have received this appointment and this influential indorsement than the friend and appointee of Tom Anderson. The New York Times waited to hear from the "Western Reserve," and then the "subse sequent proceedings interested it no more." Having heard from the land of Garfield, it observes: The falling ofi in the Republican vote is heaviest in the strongest Re ublican districts, and the dist aisfactine with Judge West's un fortunate socialist expressions early in the can vass, as well as with the President's Southern policy, has been deepest in the Western Reserve. But what a lecture it reads the Administra tion and Stanley Matthews for this fearful defeat! In this connection it has compiled a series of questions, more fearful for Ohio Ad ministrationists than ever was the old Pres byterian Catechism for Sunday school juven ility. They are as follows: U. If the result occasions no surprise in the Administration circles, why was principle sacrificed with the view of averting it ? A. Because civil service reform is a fraud. Q. If It is traceable to cau-e9 which have gridualiy acquired strength sufficient to make it inevitable, why did the liepablican managers add to foreordained def-'at the disgrace in volved in a want n abandonment of convictions previously cherished? A. This is not an Administration of convic tions; we are running this thing for all we can get out of it, and we added the "disgrace in volved" because we thought it would win. Q. And If the President is able to extra' t con solation and even encouragement from the fact that the poll "y condemned by Republicans commends itself to Democrats, why should the Administration trouble itself to prevent Demo cratIc success ? A. Ask Oeo. Wm. Curtis about this. But, since the Republiesns have- coademned the ells,, we doa't know that we asse troubled aft wai a uent~~ gwsneIl we aereeafter e itii the relaioaf prte ni to the Adfluin trton, its personntel anJ poicy? i1 A. D-d if we know. Q.. Finally, are we bo conclude that the coun 1 try has entered upon a modernised era of good li the President oaring more for the n rieny rofessions of the arty that labored ito kee m out of his office than for the party that struggled to place him in it, and depending e for his reward upon the magnanimity of par tisan opponents rather than up 1 the honest appreciation of long tried friends? A. That's just about it. There's Jim Blaine 1 and Conkling, Ohio and Iowa, which, in the s light of "long-tried friends." have shown us an "appreciation" that is-well, say, overwhelm o ing. Give us a rest. E The Times, after observing that the South Sern policy did it all, and that the veterans of the Western Reserve felt that they had been 3 betrayed in their blind vindictiveness against - the South, winds up its catechism with the following question, which it answers in a t most sensible way: SQ.--Of what avail is the assurance that the President's policy extorts praise from thie De mocracy? L A.-The fact remains that the Southern people do not allow the conciliatory acts of the Ad in istration to wean them from their alliance with the Democratic par ty, and that the Democrats. while hailing the President as a practical ex pounder of their views, continue to vote for their own candidates.
