May 21 (Special*..-l'atriotic and thoughtful member?, of the House of Representa? tives, irrespective of party, do ply rmret that the Cuban question in that body should have been made to BBannu a partisan aspect, and sensible Democrat?, do not hesitate to say that th? y were foolish yesterday when they followed the lead of Bailey, who?-.-- main desire and purpose was to Clinch his wav? rii.? and ins?.cur?> hold on the minor? ity. However ?neh Hepiiblie..ns may deprecate the turn affairs have take? in the Ileana they BhOW as yet no Btgaa of weakening or waver? ing in purpos.. Their position is a simple and easily comprehensible as w? ?l aa i?n Impregnable one, at ?east for the lime tiling. Briefly deocrlbed lt is this: The state of affali.? In l'uba remains about the sema M It was a year nfta, and if either aide has gained around in the mean tin.??, in a mill tarj sense, it is the Insurgente.

In view of these facts, all of which are the fruit? of a new potier, Which was Initiated less than three month? ago. friends of the .Administr?t!m In tlie House of Repr?sentative? feel it is due to tha; ?Ad? ministration to allow a little more lime for the de? velopment of it? peHcjr before seeking to tie its hands or embarrass its effort- i,y legislative action. Whlcii. in th? nature of tilings, must ink?? the form of a snap Judgment. To say that these men lack sympathy With tb.? efforts of the Cubans to free themselves from ;h?? detested and grievous burden of Spanish rule Is ?Imply absurd, and even WOTSO. Th? y are simply taking a ?land In favor of allow? ing the President, who is tin- ? hoice of a majority of his fellow-citizen?, to develop and carry out a policy which they believe will be satisfactor?? to the country. Whither they ?ill be aide to maintain their position In the House of Representative? re? mains to be seen, one thing seems to ba tolerably certain, which is that if the majority in that body surrenders to or tries to emulate the blatherskites in that body led by Bailey. Simpson. McMlllln and the r<?t, who cannot eee anything beyond tn<- end.? of their nose.?, they will no; only l"se their Belf-re ape.-t as atateamen. but sacrifice party control in the next House.

TERVIEW?THE PRESIDENCY OF THE ?COUNTY (OMMITTEE. ?Senator Platt arrived in New-York from Wash? ington at an early hour last evening, and went as usual to the Fifth Avenue Hotel. After dinner the Senator saw Andrew T>. White, the recently appointed Ambassador to Germany. Mr. Whit? told Mr. riatt that he intended to sail for his poet of duty In Berlin a week from to-day. Others who saw the Senator were Congressmen Lemuel E. Qulgg and B. B. Odell, Jr., P. S. Oihh.?*. Chairman C. W. Hackett, and William J. Youngs, of Oyster Bay, member of the Republi? can State Committee from the 1st District. In his talk with Congressman Qulgg Mr. Platt urged him to accede to the wishes of the organl satlon and accept the presidency of the Republi? can County Committee, to which Mr. Quigg la likely to be elected on Tuesday evening: next. Senator Platt spent a part of the evening after dinner in the hotel corridors in conversation with politicians an-i newspaper reporters. He waa asked about the interview of County Clerk Jacob Worth, leader of the Brooklyn or? ganization Republicana, printed yesterday, In which Mr. Worth declared that the true Repub? lican pollcj. was a fusion ticket; that if Seth Low should receive the united Republican and Citizens Union nomination he should loyally support Mr. Low, and that he did not go to the Washington conference because he was tired of futile Catherines engineered by Mr. Lauterbach. ?'I don't care to say anything about the In? terview s-?id to have come from Mr. Worth until its authenticity is established," said Mr. Platt. "It is possible that Mr. Worth hns been quoted as saying some things that it was not his in? tention to say." Then th? Senator added facetiously: "I would refer all inquiries regarding such subjects to the Editor Of 'The Evening Post.' who said in this afternoon's edition that Clod's ways are mysterious, and (Jodkin ought to know." Mr. Platt's attention was called to a state? ment in the reports of the Senate's action on the Cuban resolutions placing him on the list of paired Senators on Thursday. The Senator said In explanation: "When I lefl the Senate Chamber yesterday for the purpose of taking Mis. Platt (who has for some time been in Impaired health ? for a drive I was informed that the day would be de? voted to debate? and that a vote was not likely to be rpached. I have a general understanding with Senator McEnery, of Loulalana, that In the absence of either of ??? we are paired on all party questions. This will account for the an? nouncement that we were paired on the Cuban iesolutlms. Had I been present in the Senate when the vote was taken I should, of course, have recorded my vote." "When do you think Congress will adjourn?" "If anybody can ttll me when the Tariff bill I will lie passed I can tell when Congress will ad? journ." was the reply. "Who will be elected president of the Repub? lican County Committee in place of Mr. Lauter? bach?" "There is no serious opposition to the election of Mr. Quigg. The organization Is generally in favor of him," Mr. Platt answered, "an.1 I look for his election next Tuesday evening." Congressman Odell said last evening that he regarded August 1 as the probable date for get? ting through with the Tariff bill and the ad J< urnment of Congress. Mr. Quigg declined to discuss the subject of his possili!?? election as Mr. Lauterbach's stie? lt mor, and declined to say whether he would accept the ;?lace or not There were rumors last night that so strong a fight would be waged against Mr. Quigg by Louis F. Payn, Charles H. Murray, "Lightning Jim" Stewart, Charles K. Lexow, the Nyaok Sena? tor's brother. ;md others in the committee that Mr. Quigg would refuse to permit his name to be presented for president of the committee. It vas even predicted thet tbe situation might be? et m? so strained that Mr. Lauterbach would be induced t?> withdraw his resignation. The Republic?,? Club of the XXIXth Assembly District, at a meeting held last evening at No. 80P Lexington-ave., passed resolutions favoring the nomination of Congressman Quigg for Mayor of f,r?'<iter New-York, and pledging for him the solid Republican vote, as well as a large part of the independent vote of the consolidated terri? tory._ ,1 BANE OFFICERS FORGERIES.

A man in this condi? tion, if he continues to work and ***? tak'-s the wrong medicine, is really making himself a aaddle hOTM for death. I'ndcr these conditions, what a man really needs is the advice and treatment of a physician of wide ex? p?rience antl practice.

Washington, May M.-The subject of Civil Service Reform In Its practical application under the regu? lation? nnd extension? of the last Administration la regarded and discussed In Waahlngton aa not of secondary importance, and some or the men who have been devoted to the reform from the begin? ning have begun to tremble for Ita future. One of these men 1 Assistant Secretary Ryan of the De? partment of 'he Interior. As a member of the House of Representatives In the XLVIIth Congress, Mr. Ryan advocated and voted for the Civil Service bill which then b??came a law by the votes of Re? publican majorities In both branches of Congress and i*?e aporoval of a Republican President. Mr. Ryan was then serving hla third term In Congress, and It Is wlihln the personal knowledge of the writer of thi? dispatch that he was as stanch a supporter and defender of the law during th?? three terms tha. le served in that body after Its ?nact tnent as he had been of the principle th.r.ln em? bodied for the six year? before it was written In the statute book. Twelve years' service aa a Represen? tative In Congress, much of the time as a member of the Committee on Appropriations, whose Juris? diction waa then much more extensive than It now Is, gave him opportunities, which he Improved, to obtain a thorough knowledge of and deep Insight Into the details as well aa the requirements of ex? ecutive administration, and also a rather extensive acquaintance with the personnel of the public ser? vice In Washington and Its general efficiency. After an Intervnl of eight yean Mr. Rynn ha? returned to Washington as an executive oft!,-er. and. In view of his honorable record as a zealous Mend and advocate of Civil Service reform and hi? long esportones ee a legislator, bis opinion la en? titled to considerable weight. In the course of eon vet satlon with a Tribune correspondent Assistant Secretary Rynn said: The existing situation Is an unfortunate, not to say a critical one, fron at least two points of view. It Is perhaps naturili for some friend? and sup? porters of the merit systi m who bave a holy horror of "spoilsmen" end "spoils" to regard any criticism whatever of the Administration of the system? the perversion of It. 1 may Bey?during the last four years ns simply and solely nn ebullition of disappointed and discontented office-seekers and th. lr friends. This is a great mistake, and unless It Is corrected I fear that the ultimate result Will be disastrous. All the really Intelligent friends of Civil Service reform ought quickly to realize the truth. The Civil Service law hns been perverted end dragged In the mire to serve partisan ends; but even that Is not the worst of It. A new Ad? ministration has come into power, pledged to carry out policies which In man;? Important respects are directly contrary to those of the last Administra? tion, and It finds Itself confronted on the very threshold by nn army of official incumhents hostile. or, nt the very least. Indifferent, to it.-; alms and purpose?--an army Intrenched behind newly de? vised rules and regulations which were never con? templated or dreamed of bv the fremer? nnd sup? port? tra of the Civil Service law. whose design was to ?l.vate and Improve the efficiency of the clerical servie?? in the executive departments of the oov? ernment. This army Is mainly composed In the flrst pla-e of nil the au bordine te official? of superior grade? chief? and assistant chiefs of divisions, confidential clerks, disbursing e'erks, cashl?>rs, etc.. and In ? number of case? of officials of even higher grade, who were appointed without regarfl to the t'Ivi! Service leer or refutations, but simply on account of partisan considerations, and, In the second place, Of fl vast number of other persons In various branches of the service-watchmen, messenger*, cooks, blacksmiths, farmers, deputy collectors. gangers, storekeepers and a multitude of others who?" places never fell within the purview of th?? Civil Service law. according to Its framers and ad? ??,??atea In both cases there seems to have been a plain, deliberate and studied perversion for partisan end? of the Intent of the law. Rut the worst mischief hns been done, so fnr rs efficiency of ailmlnis'ratlon Is concerned. In the f-irm.r cane. The head of a bureau, whose chiefs of division are either Indifferent or actually If not openly hostile to the success of tlie policy which he Is expected to carry out. can be thwarted at every turn. He cannot Invite or encourage their subor? dinate? to te!! the truth or give him correct In? formation, for If he did there would be an end of discipline. Resides, the chief of a division actually holds in his hands the fate of the clerks who are under him. Their "efficiency records" nre under his control, nnd he may manlpu ate them ns he pleases, and every clerk knows and realllcs It. The things which ? have Indicated, an?*? others which mlKht be mentioned, hnve put a strain upon the merit system. Which, as ? thorough believer In and devoted advocate of true Civil Service reform. I fear It will not be able to benr: and If It does, It wll! b" nt the expense of efficiency. In the Interior Department as well as In the Treasury Department "reform" ran riot during the Cleveland Ailmlnistratlon. Not only were scores of chiefs nnd assistant chiefs of divisions of long experience and tried ability and efficiency dismissed In order to make room for Democratic partisans, but many others were reduced to the ranks for the same reason, and then the mantle of "amended" Civil Service regulations was thrown over all. Moreover, the new chiefs and nsslstant chiefs ; turned their hands to the work of "reform," and I the "efficiency records" of hundreds of clerks were I so manipulated that many were dismissed and many j more reduced to lower grades to make room for Democratic partisans. These are facts which nre ? easily susceptible of proof, and. In view of tlicm. It I Is not strange that officials who are now charged 1 with the duties and responsibilities of administra I tlon sharply criticise anil strongly protest against ! the methods by which they have been so heavily handicapped. Xo person who is not familiar with the official routine of the executive departments In Washington can form any Just conception of the importance of the functions fulfilled by the su? perior classes of subordinates below the heads of bureaus and offices, or how much tlie Bueccoa of any Administration depends upon their Integrity, loyalty and efficiency. TARIFF PROGRAMME IN THE SENATE. RBPtmuCAira t? hold a CAUCVI on monkay? .??fK.S'MMAKI.Nii MAY Ml COT SHOUT. Washington, May 21.?The Republican Senators will hold a caucus on Monday, after the adjourn? ment of the Senate, to crnslder various questions In connection with the Tariff bill. The first effort will be to devise plans to expedite the consideration of the bill, and there will also be an attempt to rec? oncile differences 0f opinion as to the merits of some of Its features. Some of the schedules are objectionable to many of the Senators, ami the sug? gestion has been made that it Is advlsaMe to seltlo such differences In caucus rathtr than In the open Senate. The principal object of the caucus, however, Is to agree upon a pian for the limitation of the time for debate, and under the present rules it Is rec ogniz?'<l that this can only be done by mutual cor. sent. What th?? leaders will flrst attempt Is to se? cure an agreement among Republican Senators to restrain any desire that they mny hnve for general speech???, and thus throw the responsibility for whatever delay may occur upon the opposition. So far as agreed upon, the programme Is to have Sen? ator Aldricb make hi.-? statement on Monday or Tuesday af next week, and to follow this by Im? mediately taking up the schedule? and mnklnn no other set apeches on the Republican side of the chamber, if this plan could be Indorsed by a cau? cus it would, of course, be materially strengthened This agreement may be difficult to obtain without some amendments of tha bill, but the advocates of the caucus plan believe these changes may be se? cured In caucus and Ihe work expedited. ? her?? ar?? indications that the d?bale may not be so greatly prolonged as at first seemed probable. The Democrats. Fopullata and Silver Republicans all aver that they will consume no unnecessary time with Bpeeehea. The Democrats profess to be especially anxious that there should be no delay. The Democrats will also hold ? caucus soon to de? cide upon ? line of action, especially on the eubjeet of amendment?. A Democrat!? member of the Finance Committee expressed the opinion to-day that a month would he sufficient time for debate. A number of wool commission men from Philadel? phia w,?re at the C.ipltol to-.lay eeelng members of the '-'Inanee Committee to secure ? revocation of the committee's action in lowering the rates on flrst and second class wools. They ?ay that the in? crease on third-class wools will be of no benefit and that the r?duction on tne higher grade? will work ??rim? mischief to ihe wool Interest. -?> OPPOSING THE NICARAGUA CASAL.

Mny 21.- Information reaches her? from Salvador that Seflor ZeUdon. a special envoy from Costa Rica, hae protested In behalf of that (lovertinient against the renewal of negotiations for the Kreiinghuysen treaty of IBB, relating to the Nicaragua Canal. The protest i* ?aid to be the result of the recent action of Mitt?? ter Rodrigue?, of the Greater Republic of Central Ausarten, In presenting ? letter to Secretary Olney protesting against the Nicaragua Canal bill then pending In ihe Senate. Mr. Olney aent tbe letter to Mr. Sherman, then chair man of the Committee on ????. Ii;n Relations, who laid It before the Sentile, and It was largely instrumental in securing the abandonment of. tbe bill. It led to a ?Internent by Mr. Bhenaen fuvorable to a renewal of the Kreltng liuy?? ? treaty, which contemplates the bulhwug of the canal by the I'n.ted State? without the In? termediary of a private canal company.
