THIERS AND THE MARTYRDOM CF PARIS.
A Letter from Hpuri Deleeclnze, Apologizing
tor the fouwiune.
JUNE 3, 1971.
To the Editor or- tiik Herald:?
Repugnant as It is to me to appear In ttie new
papers, I cannot torbear saying a word against the
continued misrepresentations of that brave Paris
and its supporters for whom my brother lost his
life. It Is entirely false that the Herman liberals
named in the Herald's despatches to-day wore
"leaders of the Commune." Tho "true leaders" of
the Commune were not ashamed to proclaim them
selves as such, and their names are to lie found
signed to their public papers. The Herman liberals
sympathized, no doubt, with the Commune?all
liberals do?bat to say they directed Its operations Is
not true. This is the last Versailles lie, launched by
the still bloodthirsty assassins wuo sit m council
there in order to bring these men under the grip of
tne enemies 01 liberty. They seelc to cru-di out all
active republicanism from the capitals of Europe.
Poor fools l They are endowing it with a giant
strength, which win oue day break their power like
a r tten twig.
The commune is accused of having retarded the
establishment of the rcpuDile. Way, the very day
tiiat Thiers named Ins Ministers tne Herald said
that the republic was doomed. That was more than
three months ago. The very moment lUat Thiers
chose his urleantst Cabinet aud seat his dukes
ami marquises?biiter enemies of all republics?to
the different loreigu courts; the moment he sent
the Viscount d'Haroourt to Koine, proving that he
iutended France should support the pretensions of
the l'opc. the Parisian Deputies knew that there
was a plot to destroy the republic. The latter act
was a pledging oi tnu government to the priestly
party, and mat party Is always monarchist.
ah Louis bona parte got his last pi< (//.? <i , as he got
his first?by representing "tne empire is peace
go many ot these Veisaitnsts procured ineir elec
tion bv representing tnemselves as devoted to the
republic; but Hie moment ihe.> were 111 power tln-y
showed tueir hands. Puns, that voted lor ihiers,
tnought mat eighty years oi disaster ami revolution
brought upon France through monarchical rule
hud taualu even him wlsduui. Paris looked on
amazed at those acts 01 the md oneauist?wluea
they might have expected. Paris saw tne
words "French rouubllo" erased irmu State docu
ments and hissed at by the majority Of the
Assembly, 'ihe great city that had borne, lor tho
sake of the republic, ev. 11 tiling huviug tho name of
suffering for nearly live tuomns, demanded explana
tions. tier Deputies wore hooted down, nowied at
like dogs and dually driven iroiu the Chamber.
Then it began to be apparent what was reserved tor
Paris?that "wicked, irlvoious plate"?where men
and women had cheerfully yielded up every comfort
of life and bratoly oure tne slow ugouy or terror,
want and disease; where poor workmen had di
vested themselves, 111 the midst of winter, of coats
and shoos, in order to buy bread tor their children,
and saw thcirintants starve daily 011 Hie withered
breasts of hungry mothers: where lauunc crushed
the peoplo down by thousands unto ileath 011 heartn
siones where there was uo lire to warm limbs that
slowly stiuened for tho grave ami no light at nlghi
to snow a father or mother, wue or nusband the
lust expression of affection on some loved, expiring
luce. Thus they died, with hunger, cold and dark
ness for companion.-. Then cume the terrible blow
to the heart?capitulation. Nor was this ail. Tho
men of Paris, emerging from tills long horror, were
Immediately called upon to submit to the crowning
torture ol all and save lielfort to France by quietly
endurm the Prussian ocnipatiou or the city. They
bowed their heads to this shame, ana silently
and travoly drunk even tills oup of un titrable
hnrerness because they passionately loved franco.
t ev"aw the German depart without a word, and
n flviurutd their sad and eager eyes towards Bor
i V \x and listened to Hear from the Assembly the
fate of Fiance. And that Is what they heard: tnat
their reward lor suffering, latalne, dame and
un^rrV liootiuir. hissing and couteuiptuous indiffer
ence Title is, the consummate schemer, knew well
fhnt Wris would never consent to monarchy; and,
when seeing iilH man ? uvting-secing that the re
0.11mcaas were not permitted even to speak without
? ..it in tii? Assembly?the l'arls Deputies witu
,Tw he Knew there was onlv one of two?lungs to be

stroy the republican duels, and thus have a clear
held for'operations. This, to be sure, would occasion
. ' ?;,MI n ?? but Parts was already exhausted by
SuflferIruTand'could easily bo subdued u a few or the

THE BOARD OF APPORTIONMENT.
l lie Reduction of City Kcpenditures?The Ex
penses of the Fire Department.
To Tnt: I'Jditok of the IIebalu:?
Tiic economical administration of municipal
affairs is a desirable consummation to every tax
payer. To effect that result parties have been or
ganized and whole volumes written. Out the neces
sities of the pnbllc, the safety of life and property,
in a great metropolis require efficiency as well as
economy. The hoard of Apportionment, to meet
an unexpected emergency, have Inaugurated a plan
by which they propose to make a reduction of llfly
per cent on the appropriations for certain branches
or departments of the city government, and a re
duction of twenty per cent, on all salaries of ooo
and upwards, ir the city government can be con
ducted on tins ruduceu basts It Is wed. Tlie tax
payer will lind relief in the burden imposed
by national, State and city taxation at
a time when many branches ol business
and trade nro ln.iciivo. and appreciate it,
and tiio class ot o.ilcc-holdors affected by
tlie deduction of salaries will lind their principal
consolation in mutual sympathy, hut if tiiooity
government can be made efficient at one-half the
annual expense of former years, notwithstanding
Its rapid growth, It affords evidence that it has
been extravagantly administered m ihe past, and
tne success ol uio reform would entitle the Hoard of
Apportionment to the ti ghost credit. It Ms begu
claimed, howevor, that under the metropolitan sys
tem of Commissions economy was exercised, and
the expenses reduced as far ns practicable in the
various departments, with a view to relieve those
entrusted wuh ihcin from the coostant attacks to
which they were subject by u large pronortiou of
the citizens and of the press, who were opposed to
tne system of state appointment*. The commis
sioners holding office in a no-atle constituency woro
many of them men of character and position, seek
ing the good opiutou of tUolr lellow citizens, and
having a claim to tnu business and social
respect of those from whom thev were
selected, aud being conscious that they ncld their
positions for a short period only, endeavored to
popularize both their administration aud that under
whicu they held office, by touching the public purse
as lightly as possible. The citizens' Association,
those stern censors ot the poblto expenditures, bad
often investigated the working ot the departments,
n.nl advised the public hi their reports that ail was
well and economically none, ana tno poopio nc
lieved those trusty seutlucls who, conscious or pu
rity in themselves, watched over the stewardship of
others. The year that lias elapsed since (he appoint
ment of the Commissioners i?y the Mayor has devel
oped no evidence ol largely increased expenditure.
" --------- 1"tea
and, where utiv has occurred, it has been attributed
to tne over-economy of the Mate Commissioners, en
taiilng iarger repairs und .supplies plan would nave
been necessary wtiere less caution m their disburse
ments, whether from necessity or for political
effect, had been heretofore exercised. Suddenly
we are startled by a bulletin from the Bo ir.t of
Apporciontuient, which marshals an array of figures
to be reduced, as wo have stated, llttv per cent.
Everybody la gratified at this healthy return to au
old fashioned budget, and everybody is interested to
know now it Is to bu done. Tne following Items are
from the list of present, expenses, exclusive ol sala
ries, and of the deductions to be made:?
Es.tma' u need. /. Approurtatinu.

These large deductions from tho estimated ex

and each one of the departments auecicd Is best ca
pable of deciding wuat amount oi service can oo
rendered for tho -sum proposed to be allowed. In
reference to one of theso departinenis wo venture
to express a doubt as to tho leasiotUty of the ri-dno
tion. The tire depar:merit cost tho city

$1.11.000 falling on Its other Items of outlay. The
Dumber of men and of companies is u knitted to tie
at present too small. Above Fifty-ninth street the
Island, with i population of S7, via, besides the pub
lic, institutions on tne citv islands requlrlug protec
tion, Is covered by eight naif paid companies only?
five engine and three hook and ladder?Including
but thirty mil paid odicers and men, with nrry
throe other men receiving ju.w per annum each for
their service at fires, while trio increase of popula
tion, ol residences, values an.l places or business in
that section has been the cause of an urgent pres

intention of the Board to ifford at an early Is .
lint aisumlug that tnar. Increase, with me atti-iuuat

the present force and its expenses, there are
In the city thirty-seven engine companies and flu -en

their dntles, and uot upon the number and lutlueuco
of the friends they may have at court. General
Grant Is an old West Pointer, and ho cannot hut
know that the Academy and Its management
of lute years have fallen far beneath the high
standard of tho days when ho was a ca

that there has been no falling off in the subject mat

of a thorough disciplinarian might have turned
to good account, West Point of tne pres
ent day la far behind West Polut before
the war. In tho first place let as look at
the cadets. It used to bo the custom to Beloct tho
superintendent fr on ilie Engineer Corps, a boay of
officers who, whetner they deserve It or not. havo
the reputation o<" being the most exacting discipli
narians in the army.' General Pitcher was made the
first exception to tne rule* His advent waa hailed
as the opening of
A XCW I,'HERAT. ERA
for the institution. Crooked notions were to bo
made .-rriiignt and old fogy ideas us to what cadets
should do an l should not do were to be brushed out
of existence; and, a< tor di scipline, witv that was
to h ? so gorgeously tinge l with i certain freedom
of acnon that, a cadet, it, was predicted, would leacti

heart that he was not Just beginning his gray-coat
career instead of ending it. Now, this was indeed a
pleasant prospect. To a certain degree it might
havo been readied, but it wis not. boat

Tliey seized upon it with avidity. Several Geoffrey

So long as a e id >: lias lnrlnenOal friends he has
little trouble to gi t away a day or two whenever he
wants to. Tlier ? Is a caoot now in the corps Who
goes home to soo his tolas on an average twice a
month. Bat probably the greatest change for the
worse that has la.ren pia<-; at West
Point of lato years is m the general
deportment of tho cadets. They no doubt
drill as will now as they ever did,
and will make. a-, good soldiers as tnelr predecessors
in the corps did years ago, but will they make as ac

1 boys who wero -.eat here from the lowliest unfits of

cade; armr he had been made a cadet u few months.
The fa alt oi all this, i.i my oidulon, eau be traced to
tho uu ii with epauiets, to whom the cadets have to
pay most humble obuisanoe as superiors. They are,
as a general rule, aristocrats in iceiing, although
tney themselves an cadets m.iy have been the sons
of laboring men. It makes no odds if tuoydoget
paid a salary that a good dry goods clerk on Broad

tliey hold up their heads pompously and look down
upon civilians us though tney themselves were
princes rolling in wealth, and us though the civilians
belonged to an inferior race of beings. Captain Jinks

cadets have r,o bow and ? crape before these ridicu

habtt of doing What their superiors do. Vt here once

Now, what Is the remedy lor this lulling and for all
tho o her failings of West Pobii of the present day 1
is It not to bring back Hie old state of discipline,
and, above ail, to teach the officers of the mhiiuilon
I tli it they are not so far removed above the level of,
i tho ordinary world that they cannot afford to look

Something more is wanting to mate the Acanemy
