Thirteen days ago, on Angus; 23, lha Mayor of the city of Near ?brk In a formal published letter charged that the State Civil Service Commission was abusing its power and was falsa to its trust. He declared that it was holding up a resolution concerning an appoint? ment in a city department "until the "head of the department agrees to ap "point a man selected by certain politl "cians." Now. this is a serious indictment. which (iovernor Dix cannot afford to ignore. It Is not idle gos?-ip or a cam? paign argument ?.f political opponents. It is th" solemn, deliberate assertion of a high public official, I Democrat, a friend and advisor of the governor, who. indeed, takes credit to bimself as hi\ log been instrumental in bringing about the nomination of Mr, Dix for the Rxecu tire ofhVe. When Mayor Oaynor tin.? turns upon Governor Dix's civil service commtssi??ners and chargea them with entering into a patronage intrigue In flat violation of their sworn duty be raises an Issue which vitally ronceras the reputation of the Governor and Mayor n> well sa that of OomnriaBjtotSSrs Kraft and Burton, the responsible Democratic majority of the commission. Vet tint teen days have passed and so Far as the public has seen no action has been taken by the commissioners or tha Governor whom they represent to dear them of this grave cbari: Either the commissioners have com mltted a serions offence, rendering them unworthy of trust as upholders and ad? ministrators of the merit system, or Mayor Gaynor bas outrageously alan? dated them. Then? ?an be no middle gmnnd. Mayor Gaynor has ssjd too much or too little. Having made the ?general and sweeping charge, ha owes ?it t?. them, to the Governor and to the public t?> gi'c the specific detalla of ?their alleged Offending Hi OSS, OU the one hand, no right to use his great Iprestige to injure their reputation with lout clearly showing their wrongdoing | He bas. on the other band, no right tr> I be content with b mere pas Ins com ?plaint of official conduct which if cor ' rectly described I : him i alia for the summary removal of the eommissionei The commissioners on tbeii pari bave do ? riirlit to sit silenr under this Ittdlctmenl They owe it t<< their earn honor and to put.lt.? confidence In the In egrity of the merit system which they have . ?. to maintain to clear themselves from Ihe Mayor's charge and force from him ? retraction or else turn the adi tratlon of the dril service law over to more worthy hands. As for the Gorernor, he should Und o Intolerable to let one of the most important branches of his administra ti"n r.^i nu 1er the Imputation of ?lis j boneatj caal on it by so Important, In '. duential and friendl* s man as the ?

I Democratic tariff bills almost hi long ai William R. Morrison did. Kach of them before be died had lapsed lui ?semi obecuritj in their heyday In Washing ton, bowerer, each wielded enormous political Influence and each lefl a marked impresa on the policies <>f his party. Colonel Mills would bard)*/ have fell al borne in a Democratic House of Rep reaentatives capable of following the leadership of an opportunist like Oscar V\. Underwood, He was .?? crusader Iji spirit, Impetuous, not n lltth Intolerant, entirely convinced of the righteousness ?f hi< theories and unwilling to .-.i?,-?io them a lot or little under th.? pressure of expediency. He belonged bj tradl lion to the ante-bellum nebool ol South? era political economists, Interested chief ly, If not exclusively, In bringing about ii fiee exchange of the Boutb'i agrlcull ural staples for the manufs hired prod? ncti of Europe. He was ? free trader at heart and warred against nil out eropplngs In th.? D?mocratie par:, of the Mea of making ostensible reven duties do ihe practical work of protec tiou. ii?- accepted the doctrine of fres raw materials not only a?- sound In Itself but as ?i useful device for forcing down the duties on the manufactured sit?eles tato which those rsm materials entered. it Colonel Mills had I.n the leader of the majority in th.? lions?? at the sea ilon Just i nded it would have been im? possible to conceive of bis drawing up ? wool Khedule containing i tax of 20 per cent <?n raw wool and then dickering In conference committee w" Bi to Increase tin? duty to 29 per ?cut. He would have enibodled In ? Mouse hill bis own con? victions and the pledges <>f bis party sad then gone t?. the country on it rather than sat bis name to ? lo-' r?>ii???i conference report outraging hla economic beliefs. But another genera? tics* ?if Southern leaders bas corns up? u the stage on?? win. h cares little for air sUaetioiis and is willing to tax wool or anything else on either i revenue or a protective basis if It loot i si ?t soma temporary political advantage i to be gained thereby. Fortune was nev< r kind to the bluff and Bery Texas leader, lie was Jockeyed out of the Kpeakersblp In Ittul In spite Of the fad that hi? ssjrvicaa to the Ih'inocratl?- party had clearly entitled him to that honor. His pride was broken by the ingratitud?? Of scheming, ap?n? dales, and be gladly l?ft th? House Or the Beugte, Bul there ho was caught in the counter ?vurreoti of the fret? sliver agitation, his loyalty to the Cleveland ailiiiinlstrntion ?pilckly losing him the confidence of his state, which was rabid? ly d?9Y0ted to the idea of free silver in tlalioii. He was not n natural or rom? pt tent politician, snd that defect in his make-up led directly both (?? his i??ss ??r the Speaketsliip and to his r.?tireineiit from the Senatorship. Hut he was some rdaing more ndniirable than a successful politician. He was a self-respecting ami self-sustaining public man. whose sense lo? duty was Ugh, whose public life was I clean god honorable and whose Inde? penden?'?' of character was inflexible. He ? was his own master, and 00 Uy QU6a> taOn involving principle or personal eon I sisteney It waa never necessary to n^k ' where Roger Q. afilia woaj?d stand. "LHXOWIVCr ALB WY.

The Mgttly in? formal way in which the allegations of graft, corruption and blackmail on which the Investigation Is based were presented t.i the Legislature and the obvious po? litical inspiration of the affair gave rise to the belief that It was a ?rude Tani- ; many scheme to "j?jb" the Republican state chairman.

If any such Interchange of courteslea was contemplated the Lieutenant CrOV* ertmr appears, to have failed to enter into the spirit of Tammany's schemes.
