J Mr. Cleveland's Positive Engagement
I on July 1.
I When Tnoxuo Andrews IIkkdiiioks died
t Indianapolis In 18S5, Gnovnn Cleveland
tf did not attend the funeral of tho Vlco-Prcsl-
1- dent Thoctcuso presented by Mr. Clevd-
1 Iand for his failure to pny to tho memory
I of tho Dcmoeratlo 6tatc6man tho natural
I tribute of respect and political and personal
I rraUtudo was very peculiar. KuTnEBFoitD
t B. IIayes crawled out of obscurity to touch
'til tho hem ot tho (lend Vice-President's eliroud.
ipi Mr. Cleveland, In a semi-official statement
jji to tho press of tho Unltod States, oxplalned
111 his reasons for remaining In Washington.
Ill l' Iho explanation Is worth reproducing hero :
lrl
ji'lt "In IS! first moment ot the shock of Mr. HxrtDRtc is'i
ill-j; death I yleldeJ tu mr Inclination and declared tny In-
ijl jj tentlon to be present t tbe runerul. Of course, tn
J R Teaching that conclusion t did not pnt out of i!i
J! b peremptory preis of publlo business, or what I deemed
111 a sniuclent conIJeratton ot my duly to the people.
3 I Tho public business I thought, I could dlipoie of by ad.
.11 B dltlonnl amplication and more hoursot work, and t con-
I ildered It to be my duty to the people to answer a ten.
jjJU der sentiment or rnpect and affection to the dead Vice
II B President, which does them great honor. I am siitli
nl I tied uow that lst fault in considering the iinestion,
In that I did not take ai comprehensive a view of tho
Ijl doty I one to the public ob I should that is, I did not
fill took at every I huso of It, and I am afraid my strong
gj I -personal desire e unewhat clouded my Judgment 1 am
ij! I now reminded by eome ot the beat and raot patriotic
ill I ' andthougtitfulof our cltlrens that tbe real and solemn
Jj I duties ot my ot'lee are at the uatloual capital, and that
31 1 In the present peculiar anl delicate situation I ought
tit I not to take even tho remote chance of accldenttnctdent
5 1 to travel to gratify a f entlment so general and eharao
h -tensile as that Inv nlved In this subject. I am now cer-
Rjl Q -tain that neither my desire nor the sentiment referred
hH to, nor tho dimculty that attends In this case a change
I of design nor any stubborn Idea of heroism, will Justify
uf, me In subjecting the country to any greater chance ot
j HI disaster than attends my performance of strict duty
' a here, and that I ought not to lnillct upon my country-
91 men even the unie3t and anIety attending my do-
I J parture. absence, and returu In attendance upon the
' Ij funeral ceremonies."
jn Tlio valuo of Mr. Cleveland's stock
I phrases and tho measure of tho 6lncority of
1 Lis professions of personal sentiments and
1 motives vcro not so well understood then as
I thoy nro now. Tito country was ready to
I I bellovo that tho Prosldent really desired to
1 1 stand at tho provo of tho man to whom ho
I fl owed his election, and that nothing but an
I I honost, If mistaken, senso of public duty en
1 J obled him to ovorcomo tho "stubborn Idoa of
1 i heroism " w hlch Impelled him to risk tho or
1 I dlnary porlls of railway travel In order to bo
I present at Mr. Hendricks's funoral. In tho
I hollow phrases quoted above, Mr. Cleve
I iiAND manoRod to advertlso his diligonco at
1 tho desk, his eoal for tho publlo Interests,
H his solemn senso ot daty, and his sollcltudo
H for tho pcaco ot mind of citizens who
J might apprehend disaster to our Institutions
HI If tho President should stubbornly persist In
Jl tho horolo Idea ot risking his person upon a
1 fast expross train. With olophantlno and
Ij oharactcrlstlo humbug. Mr Cleveland
I' J mado a vlrtuo of what Is now Been to bo
jl fl nothing moro than callous lndlfforenco to
1: tho requirements of propriety.
Tho second direct opportunity to manifest
I' his rospoct for the memory ot Hendricks
i has Just como to Mr. Cleveland, and ho
I has evadod It as before. On Juno 16 Mr.
1 CLETELAND-repHed as follows from his eum-
1 mcr homo at Marlon to an Invitation to
2 attend tho ceremony of unveiling; tho Hen
I SRIOKS monument at Indianapolis on July 1 1
Dj " It Is uselerA I hope, to assure yon of the latlsfac-
H tlon It would afford me to testify my respect and affeo-
n don for your dlsllnguUhed fellow townsman by Joining
H those who will gather to honor his memory on the occa
fi alon yon coutemplate. Ills eminent publlo service and
jH' Iiisfalthful discharge ot mauy and Important official du
Sr ties render the commemoration of nil pabllc aud prl-
Ihj vato Tlrtue most fitting and proper.
lilr " I linctrelv reuret that a potltive engagement fvrtht
(j dV nrpolntfdfor the nnrelUng of the monument erected
lyj to his memory make it tmpostills for me to accept your
M lnritatloiu"
jjjl Now that Mr. Cleveland Is a prl vnto cltl-
Hj ron ho has a perfect right to deel 1. 1 to put
l himself to personal lnconvonlenco or to sub-
l! Joct hlnuclf to tho discomfort of railway
fflf travel lu warm weather for tlio sake of hon-
m orlns tho memory of his associate on tho
yjj Democratic ticket of 188, or of pratlf ylng
Hf tho frlonds of tho dead statesman. Nobody
III can dlsputo that right or indict Mr. Cleve
j tut i liAND for preferring his oivn comfort to
Ml -J other considerations. Quito another ques-
Wt j tlou, that of porsoual eraclty, is raised by
M) : I his remorkablo letter.
, ' Mr. Cleveland has boon crltlclsod In I11-
Mi 1 dlana and clsowhcro for not cancelling or
H 1 postponing tho positive engaBemcnt on July
0j l.whlch ho alleged on Juno 10 aa tho reason fur

S thoso who gathered to honor tlio memory

H ( or less speculation as to tlio character of

St fish In Ihizzanl's Iiay,
1 Thoslmplo tiutli Is that ho had no posi-

w 1 Mr. diioviui Cleveland went neither to
m court nor a-llshliig. Ho made no calls and
rel j ho received nono. Ho remained all day at
B; his homo in Marion, doing nothing witli tho
Ri Btubborn heroism of utter ldloness. Mr.
S; Cleveland's lieart may havo lioen at

No Time for Nonsento.
Tho Toloo ot Major CnAitLES Hn,r. Joneo,
tho hondsomo and hustling tariff roform
pullcr-ln, Is still hoard at St. Louis and clso
whcro on tho Missouri circuit. Tho tariff
roform plcnlo season is In bloom in Missouri
and impassioned oloquonco tempered with
plcnto lemonado prevails In that Stato.
Wo advise Major Jones and tho lemon
ado orators and all tlio tariff-reforming en
thusiasts between Corslcana and Bedlam to
hold in their cloquenco for a season. Tho
Democratlo party has moro serious duty
than wrangling about theories and Inviting
division and defeat. Whllo tho very sub
Blanco and llfo of frco Institutions aro at
tacked by tho Republican party, led by a
man of brains and high courago who cares
as Httlo for consequences ns ho docs for
precedents, It Is not for tho Domocracy to
play dobatlng society.
Whoever counsols tho Domocratlo party
to fritter away Its energies in barren discus
sions or weaken and dtvldo Its strength In
controversies that lead to nowhoro, Is Its
enemy, nnd, In tho present stato ot affairs,
tho enemy of his country.
Tho States and tho Stars.
During nearly twelvo months wo shall
havo forty-four Stotos In tho Union and
forty-throo stars on tho flag. Whon Con
gress comos togothor again this week tho
differences between tho Bcnato nnd tho
House over tho admission of Wyoming will
bo adjusted, and that Territory will become
tho forty-fourth Stato. UutltSBtar cannot
go upon tho flag for nearly a year, in conso
quencootthls statu to:
"On the admtsston of a new Btate Into the Union one
Marshall be added to the union if the flan and inch
addition shall take affect on the fourth day of July
then next succeeding such admission."
That Is why wo shall have forty-four States
nnd forty-throo stars; and should New
Mexico nnd Arizona bo admitted before tho
4th of July noxt, wo should havo for a
tlmo forty-six States and forty-throo stars,
Just as on tho 2d of July, 1890, wo had forty
two States and thirty-eight star, and on
tho day following forty-throo States and
thirty-eight stars.
Most ingeniously infelicitous must have
soemed to tho War and Nnvy Departments
tho suggestion mado by Prosldent Harrison
on this subject to Delegate Dubois. He, as
tho representative of Idaho, had called on
tho President to ask, as a favor to Its peo
ple, that tho act of admission should bo
signed on tho 4th of July, Just as tho
four States previously admitted had mot
in convention on tho 4th of July, 1839, to
accept admission. This was all that ho and
thoy wanted, nnd everybody would havo
been delighted had the request been granted
in Its exact terms. But Mr. Harrison
thought It much better to proposo signing
tho bill on tho preceding day, in order that
Idaho's star might go at onco upon tho flag
under tho stutulo Just cited, and this sug
gestion was accordingly accepted.
As a consequonco of this gratuitous ad
vice all tho publlo flags prepared tor tho
ubo of tho army and tho navy and for the
publlo buildings, containing forty-two stars,
were mado obsolete on tho very day when
for tho first tlmo they could havo been prop
erly used. Tho same is true of tho multi
tudes ot flags to bo carried by the mllltla
and other organizations, and thoso owned
by private citizens. Had Mr. Harrison
been content to do what Idaho asked him
to do, all these Hags would now havo a cor
rect record for one year. But as it is, most
of thorn cannot even be patched to advan
tage, because whllo forty-two stars admit of
symmetrical arrangement, forty-throo Is a
much harder numbor to deal with neatly.
The army and navy will make tho best
of tho flags thoy have, so as not to lose
tho supply which had been provided for tho
present year. Moanwhlle thoy are studying
what to do for tho flags which will bo duo
on tho 4th of July, 1891. Unless some other
Territory should bo admitted, the number
of stars will then be forty-four. The ar
rangement which Is now most In favor Is
that of eight stars in tho upper and the lower
row and soven In tho four rows botwoen.
Tho Mapping of tho World.
Tho sorlos of articles which Mr. J. G. Bar
tholomew, tho British googrnphor, has
begun to publish on tho general mapping of
tho wholo land surfaco of tho world, is likely
to bo of unusual Interest to all lovers of
good maps. Even thoso who are constantly
handling maps often do not know how trust
worthy their maps are, whethor, for instaneo,
thoy aro based on exact trigonometrical
work, or nro tho result of general but not
detailed surveys, or are merely compiled
from numerous itineraries and observations.
Tho purpose of Mr. Bartholomew Is to In
dicate tho best maps now avallabio for ovory
part of tho world, whother derived from
exact survoys, travollors' sketches, or other
sources of Information.
This geographer's first papor, published In
tho ticoltiah Geographical Magazine, Is ac
companied by a remarkably Instructive nnd
entertaining map, colored to show approxi
mately tho geographical valuo of tho bost
maps of all tho countries of tho world. Any
ono can sco at a glanco that over only a very
small part of tho earth's surface havo tho
otact topographical surveys been carried out
which form tho basis of our nearest approach
to perfect maps. In fact, only about ono
soonth of tho land Biirfaco of tho globo has
boon survoyed In detail, and tho maps of all
tho rest ot tho world fall far short ot the
highest standard of cxcellenco.
Thcso exact trigonometrical maps, where
over mado, may be called tho mother maps,
becauso it is from them that smaller maps
aro producod. Thoy aro tho groat desidera
tum of tho sclontllio ranp makor, and tho
fact that tho maps of Europe and India nro
tho best in tho world Is becauso thoy havo
been trigonomotrlcally surveyed. No map
is superior to tho groat cadastral survey ot
India, and tho wholo of Kuropo has been
covered with dotailed topographical surveys
oxcept tho eastern two-thirds of Russia, tho
Balkan States, Turkoy, and parts of tho
Scandinavian and Iberian peninsulas.
Only a comparatively small part of our
own country can yet boast of porfooted sur
voys. Tlioy covor our most thickly populat
ed legions only In Massachusetts, Iihodo
Island, Now Jorsoy, n small part of Now
York, and tho southern part of Pennsylva
nia, nnd then stretch away southwest, within
narrow limits, following tho Appalachian
legion to tho latltudoof Charleston, Tho
mohtof MIssouil has bi'on trigonomotrlcally
suivoyod, and tho work Is complete in con
bldorablo districts of Illinois, Iowa, Texas,
and California; but by far tho largest area
in our country yet covered by thcso survoys
Is tho mining and mountainous regions of
tho West between 102 and 120' west longl
tudo nnd extending from tho Missouri Ilivor
near Helena, Mont., to and including the
northein pjrtlon of Arlr.ona, with its great
est width nlong tho fortieth parallel. Every
year tho National Geological Survoy, co
operating with various State surveys, is In
oroaelng tho area covered by detailed topo-1
graphical maps, and, when this great work
Is comploted, wo shall bo ablo todcrlvo from
this big map smaller maps for popular use
that will bo as accurate as thoso of Ger
many and Great Britain,
We shall bo dependent, howovor, for a
long time to como, upon maps giving many
topographical features as tho result of gen
eral but notdcUlledsurvoy8,whlch aro fairly
trustworthy throughout, but cannot bo
made tho basis of tho most perfect speci
mens of map making. South America Is tho
only continent that ctnnot show a slnglo
Bquaro mile of dotailed topographical sur
veys oxcept on tho blto of Its largo towns.
But South Amorica lias tho advantage of
our continent In this rcpect thnt there Is no
part of It th.it can now bo tnld to bo wholly
unknown, though largo areas arc ekotched
on ilia inaprt troin slnglo Itineraries or re
ports; while In North Amoricntho Interior
of tho northin part of Labrador, and of nil
tho continental Islands north of us, cannot
b mapped from actual survoys or observa
tions. South of tho Bio Grando IUvor in tho
Wi stein Hemisphere thoro nro as yet no
mans worthy of tho name of topographical
maps except those of tho Argontlno Repub
lic, on which mtioh though by no moons all
of tho moro lmtiortant topographical detail
Is already shown.
Even Africa shows Httlo nroas of dotailed
topographical surveying, as In Algeria and
In Egypt from Cairo to tho sea; but by far
the larger part ot ATrlca Is represented on
tlio maps, Hko a largo part of Inner Brazil,
only approximately, and tho continent is
dotted nil over from thomlddloof tho Sahara
to tlio regions Just north of tho Zambesi
IUvor with aroas that havo not boon explored
at all, and maps of which aro moroly hy
pothetical. Tills can hardly bo Bald of any
part of tho vast contlnont of Asia, of which
tho most Imperfectly known areas havo been
roveuled to somo extent at least through tho
Itineraries of ono or moro travellers. Tho
Chtneso nro excellent geographers, and their
country, through their own efforts and thoso
ot foreign topographers, has boon mapped
with a fair degreo of reliability, whllo Rus
sian Central Asia, where within tho past
twelvo years n brilliant corps of Russian ex
plorers havo boon at work, Is to-day far
moro accurately mapped than any part of
Siberia east of tho Obi IUvor.
Systems of exact trigonometrical survey
ing were not known until about 160 years ago.
Sluco thon tlio various Governments, stimu
lated as most of them have been by tho need
of making accurate topographical maps for
military purposos, havo been pushing for
ward their detailed surveys. But they havo
covered as yet only one-seventh of tho
world's Innd surface, and many of tho less
useful parts of tho world may not bo de
lineated on tho maps with tho greatest at
tainable nccuraey for centuries to como.

From tho columns of tho Philadelphia

It may bo regarded as official :

Mr. Gnovnn Cleveland's letter read ot
the Tammany Fourth ot July celebration eon
tains tils favorite sdjoetlvo In a p&ssago "oon
eecratod" to one of his farorlto subjects, tho
evil elTocts of partisanship:
"Our fathers. In establishing a new government open
the will of the people and oonsecrattd to their carl and
Just protection, conld not prescribe limitation whloh
would deny lo political parties Its eonduot and admin
istration The opportunities and temptation thns neoes
sarily pressnted to partisanship IiaTe brought us to a

and whin. In public places, the true Interest! ot the
country an too lightly considered,"
Apoorontly Mr. Olk eland regrets that our
fathers could not proscribe- limitations which
would deny to political partlos tho oonduct and
administration of the Ooternment.
Tho Domocrats havo soon with disgust the
Injury which was dono to tho dlsctpllno and

From the ndlanapoltf Aewf.
Got. mil scored a political point br his vlBlt
to Indiana, but he also stlt rod up some ran
kling animosities. The most ardont frlonds ot
ox-1'rosldont Cloreland admit, howover. that
Bill as a politician suits tho Hooslor Bourbon
Democracy. Before Oov. Hill came out among
tho Hooslor Democrats ho had but Httlo politi
cal following In tho Stato; now all tho " boys "
nro for him, and aro not afraid to say so. Dur
ing tho forty hours he was In tho city ho mode
the acquaintance of hundreds of Democratlo
workers ropresontlnc all parts of tho State,
and ho seems tohato made a friond of nonrly
every one ho met. Tho Oovornor did not talk
much poIUIcb himself, but Mojor-Gon. Sickles
and R. 11. Sopor did a vast amount of talklnc
for him, and thoy novor neglected to loave the
impression that Gov. Hill is in the race for the

ot Indiana's nomocracy.
Altogether, the unveiling exorcises afforded
Gov. Hill a grand opportunity to boom himself
for tho Presidency. Tho Governor como to In

of carefully prepared speochos, suitable for

With tho admission o' Wyoming and Idaho
to Statehood almost the last of tho old Territo
ries vanishes from tho map. Utah, Now Mexi
co, and Arizona are all that romatn In that
etago of tho embryo Commonwealths which
are represented by Delegates In tho Houso of
Representatives. Alaska baa not ret born
raised to the complete dignity of n Territory,
although having many officers and some of tho
prirllegeB aocordod tn the regularly organlzod
Territories, while Oklahoma, which was created
this year. Is not yet in tho oxorctso of all Us
functions and prerogatives.
Within tho next tbroo or four years all of
those will probably pass Into Statehood with
tho oxcoptlon of Utah, and If somo wny of

the sky from west to oast, Vonus sotting just as
Jupiter Is rltlng, and the others being scattered
along tho arch of tho Zodlao botwoen the two

doubtful contest between Jupiter and Venus
for tho first place In brilliancy, but In a few

and consequently growing brighter, will havo

WAsnmoTOS. July fi.-0ur Government has
always expressed, whonevor the ocoaslon ro
qulrod, tho frlondly Intetost of the people ot
the United Statos In tho projoct to combine
Guatemala, Honduras, Sahador, Coito Illca,
and Nicaragua in a fedoratlon resembling our
own. Flvo yoars ago, whon Darrlos, at tho
head of a Guatomalan army, attemptod to
f orco such a union upon Salvador by tho sword,
our Goornmont, In doclarlng that this net of
vlolenco must not be accomplished, sddod
that it rcgardod a voluntary union of tho
Control Amorlcnn States as desirable. Mexico
took noarly the same ground, declaring that It
did not object to fedorotion It ontored into
voluntarily by tho flvo btatos.
Accordingly whon last autumn a eonforenco
ot ronresontathos ot tho five Statos at San
Sahador formulatod a system of provisional
union, to bo carrlod Into cfloct aftor Us ratifica
tion by tho Individual States, our country lookod
iavorably upon tho projoct. Tho flvo States
would have an area of about 175.000 squaro
milos nnd a population ot moro than 3.000,000,
Unltod thoy would bo bettor able to do
fond thouiBolvos against forolgn aggression,
and presumably with a common govornment
and common Interests thoy would oscapo some
of tho prosont liabilities to strlfo with each
othor. Common cltlzoushlp nnd common sys
tems of laws and regulations ot Undo would
aid all intorosts. whllo tbo Importance ot this
part of Amerloa, In vlow ot futuro Intor
oceanic canal communication, has mado com
mercial and political union still moro urgent.
Up to a few weeks ago everything seomad
favorablo tothlB project Tho conditional as
sontof tho oxocutlto authorities ot the fit o
States hail boon duly glvon. In some instances
modlllcatlons of tho plan woro suggested, tho
ProBldontof Costn ltico. for examplo. desiring
additional stipulations for the liberty ot the
pross, tho Presidential euncesston, and tho pro
tection of llfo, and sending commissioners to
each of tho other lour republics on these
points. It Is truo that all thoso executive
approvals ot tho draft of tbo scheme made at
San Sahador were subjoct to ratification by
tho rospoctlvo Loclslaturos or Congresses of
tho States. Guatemala, Honduras, nnd bal
vador, howovor, furnlshod this ratification,
and whllo tho Legislatures of Costa Hlca and
Nicaragua held back. It was possibly consid
ered tbot tholr attitude roiulred oroator cau
tion from their pocullar relations to tbolnter
oconnlc canal and their boundary controversr
with eaoh oilier. Hut now the overthrow ot
President Sienondez In Salvador, although to
foreign observers ItB relation to tho federation

loaiod, crystallbo tho various elements of op
position against tbo plan of union.
According tu tho tonus of tbo tronty. as the
asreomont at hnn hahador was cnllod, tbo
Presidents of tho flvo Statos wero to moot at
Tegucigalpa, tho capital of Honduras, en tbo
ZOtti of August noxt. and thoro docldo bv lot
which of them should bo tbo President of tbo
Itepublla of Central Amorlca for tbo next

Sorlod of ton years during which the now or
erof things could not bo roitardnd as finally

as was stipulated, the definite union could bo

Diet or I hamber of Doputlos. the same num-
Sor from each State, and mooting at tho l'resi
ent's capital, la to form tho legislative
part of the system. Hut upon tho dellnlto
union a rogular Constitution Is to be
ndoptod, probably with a term of tour years
for tbo President, and a genoral Congress for
tho republic. Meanwhile ono member of tbe
Cabinet or Consultivo Committee, as It is called,
will act as Secretary of Stato, and tb9 agree
ment of tho majority of tho icomrulttoo Is nec
essary to mako valid tbo acts ot tho President
Ills functions wilt be nt prosent conflued chief
ly to administering foreign affairs nud appoint
ing diplomatic ofllcors, which aro hereafter to
bo In tho namo of the itepublla of Central
America. Ho Is to ask assistance of the
Beveral Statos for defence should any of them
be attacked. Is to arrange for tbe arbitration of
disputes botweon States, and Is to promptly ap
point n Commission of an equal number of
mombers from each State to arranuea uniform
eoiioot laws. At tho ond of the llrst year the
four Presidents of Statos who aro not chosen
br lot at tbo llrst oloctlon will draw for tbe sec
ond torm; then tho remaining three for the
third term, and so on.
While this careful provision for giving ench
State its sham of terms In the Presidency
obviates tbo chief ob-tnclo to previous at
tempts at union, and while the extremely
limited power of tho general Government
during tho provisional period Is calculated to
rcmovo othor objections, yot as tho tlmo
approacboi for the beginning of tbe new
system, anprohonslon tn regard to it rooms to
havo Increased. Costa ltica and NIotirugiia
have both thus far delayed their legislative
ratification, and moanwhllo tbo opposition
to foderatlon In those two States has taken
tho form ot urging n dual league botween
them. Hut a moro serious fact is that the
epoctro ot Guatomalan hegomony, which has
Siaralyrod so many previous elToit at con
edoratlon, is again on tho horizon. In the
ntost news from Central America It Is declared
that Guatemalan Is bent on having a successor
to Monendoz elected In Salvador who will
support her policy; thnt Honduras Is siding
with Ouatiminla; that Salvador Is appealing
to C'ota Hlca and Nicaragua for help, and
that instead of tho the States uniting on tbe
1.0th of Soutombcr, by that time the three
Southern Mates may be in arms against the
two Northern.
Hut whllo tho outlook for Central American
union Is thus loss favorable than hitherto, tbe
cao Is far from dosporato. Although Costa
Ilica and Nicaragua havo not jet fully sanc
tioned It tha Presidents of both States havo
Pronounced tbomsolves In Its favor, nnd, In
ilood tho chance ot becoming President of the
wholo republto will natural y attract all llvo
Lxecutlves to tako tart tn tbo oloctlon of
Aug. 20. After that date disappointed as
plrnnts might. Indeed, draw bnok. Should
tluatomala win tbo prt70 for tho llrst year, four
of that powerful Stato might make trouble.
Hut It 1b hard to understand how with thnles
sotiHOf lS85to guide her, Guatemala should
not moanwhllo carefully guard against even
tho npneuranoo of exeroisfng unduo jirosBiire
up n hor neighbor, Salvador. Probably she
will at least disclaim any such purpose, lest
tho project of union should bo destroyed at tho
moment of fruition.
