In that portion of the press edited by superior
beings there in still a good deal being said in
opposition to the appointment of Mr. Wana
maker to the postmaster-generalship under the
incoming administration; but. as a matter of
fact, no valid objection thereto has been yet
made, so far as we have seen. The Post-Office i
department is purely a business establishment, i
which can best be administered by a business ;
man; and an rj-proved business man Mr.
Wanamaker has surely shown himself to be. >
There exists, therefore, that pood reason for
hie appointment, besides, isn't it about time I
for the recognitiou of some other interest than i
law and professional politics in the construc- j
tion of presidential cabinets? Why shouldn't |
commerce, and agriculture, and mining, and j
the mechanic arts have their innings once in a
while? All the brains and patriotism and
statesmanship of the country are not by any j
menus confined to the narrow circle from |
which Presidents have usually chosen their I
constitutional advisers; and if Mr. Harrison j
should depart somewhat from the usage of his J
predecessors in this respect the country will
?ery likely be the gainer. At any rate, the
experiment is worth trying; and Mr. Wana
tuaker is probably as good a inan as any to
begin with.
Wo are aware that one of the objections
persistently urged to Mr. Wanaker's appoint
ment is the charge that he contributed ? 100.000
to the republican campaign fund. Mr. Wana
maker squarely denies that be contributed this
sum. or any amount approaching it; but sup
pose he did; is there anything heinous in that,
assuming that he didn't defraud his creditors
or take awriy from the support of his family by
the act? It only meant that he believed in the
principles he espoused, and was willing to con
tribute liberally of his menus to secure their
triumph over those he conceived to be mis
chievous and injurious to the best interests of
the country. Is tlier*' anything wrong, legally
or morally, in this? If a poor man may prop
erly contribute for political purposes say ten
dollars, or a hundred, which he cannot easily
afford, is it a crime for Mr. Wanamaker to con- [
tribute such an amount as he can spare without !
feeling it? In other words, for example, and
Accepting for the mi>m> nt the lowest view that
can be taken of the matter, is it any worse for
Mr. Wanamaker, being out of office, and want
ing to get in. to contribute $100,000. than it is
for Mr. Cleveland, being in office, and wanting
to keep himself there, to subscribe $10,000
to the campaign fund of his party?. In pro
portion to the means understood to be pos
sessed by the two gentlemen referred to. the
first-named sum is no greater than the latter.
Wherein, then, lie* the moral difference? If
it can be pointed out. the country ought to
have the benefit of the explanation.
The showing made by the Commissioners" i
report of removals and appointments seems
from yesterday's action to have made a favora
ble impression upon the democratic members j
of the Senate District committee. The im
pulses of political gratitude would probably
account to most nun for their support of Mr.
Webb. The District democrats are, however,
becoming uneasy lest this gratitude be carried
too far. They look to the future j
rather than to the past. They fear j
that if Mr. Webb, with the democratic record
of h s administration, reappointed by a demo
cratic President and pushed by democratic in
fluences in the face of the unanimous protest
of the local republican organisations, shall be
confirmed by democratic action in the District
committee and in the Senate, he will be treated
as the democratic rather than the republican
representative on the board, and that a straight- '
out republican wili be appointed by President 1
Harrison to succeed Mr. Wheatley. In this
event the large body of citizens of democratic ,
tenu* ncies would be deprived, they complain, |
of all reliable and steadfast representation on ;
the board of Commissioners. The whole con- j
troversv has worked itself into a very curious >
shape so far as political considerations are !
involved. Each of the parties is of j
the opinion that its own interests can
not be better served than by securing Mr. |
Webb as the Commissioner representative of j
its adversary, and each promptly resists and j
resents every attempt to credit Mr. Webb as its '
own representative. In the District the lead- i
ers of both parties are in f.ivorof new appoint- i
ments to both civil Commis-uonerships by Presi
dent Harrison. It is for the interest of the
District that the local government, however
constructed politically, should be iu touch with
the national administration, and this relation
of confidence and harmony will be best secured
by causing the incoming President to select
the Commissioners for whom his administra
tion will be responsible.
Senator Sherman's amendment to the sundry
civil bill giving to the existing street railways
of the city the privilege of using as motive
power electric storage batteries or underground
electric wires or cables couples with the exer
cise of this privilege the requirement that flat,
grooved rails shall be substituted fur the pro
jecting T rails at present in Use. No proposed
legislation for the benefit of the District, now
pending, is more wisely framed or promises i
greater advantages to the public than this
measure. If it becomes a law and is utilized
by the railways it will give the city the much
needed improvement in street railway motors i
without adding to the uglv and dangerous mass
of overhead wires, and will by the same stroke
abolish the T rail nuisance. It is evident, too,
that the leading roads of the city in order to
shut out possible competitors wish improved
and modern equipment "will soon find it to their
interest to take advantage of the opportunity,
if the authority to make the change is given.
To good judges of weather there is an exhil
arating charm in the approach of a cold wave.
It brings surcease of clammy moisture and
ahowers upon us, magnificent areas of crisp,
life-giving oxygen. It is like the difference be
tween the fire of coals that slumbers on the
grate, giving neither light, heat, nor poetry,
aad the glowing, joyous open fire of hickory,
with its backlog, forelog. and tent-sticks. Peo
ple who can tell a go-id fire from a poor one
will rejoice in this coming cold wave. Let her
come!
The admission of four new states in time to
organize the next House with a firm republi
can majority will, perhaps, serve to do away
with the extr* session, especially if Mr. Ran
dall succeeds in passing the Cowles bill. Con
ceding the two seats doubtful in West Virginia
to the democrats there will be a republican
majority of three should an extra session be
called and all the members-elect present to
take their seats. But one republican is danger
ously sick, and two are so ill that they are not
equal to the ordeal of an all-night session if a
filibustering program should be decided on by
the democrats. The signs of an extra session
have faded perceptibly in the last few days.
Provision for the compilation of the District
laws should be made before the adjournment
Of Congress. Such a compilation will be a
great benefit to the people subject to these
scattered laws, a convenience to the bar, and a
boon of superlative importance to any future
judges of the District, appointed on political
grounds from outside stales, who may be un
horsed in District law and rusty in regard to
law in general.
The honor done Gen. Roeecrans yesterday is
