President McTCinlcy will not be pleased with tin completed incisure, but, lie ax ill fcign it some time in Julx, probablx, pos sibly in June Urndlcy and Tlnnnu. Some of our esteemed contcinporiiics appear to think that Gov Bradlcj's ap IKMiitmenr of Major A T Wood as .Senator from Xentuckx was intended as a small Joke on Senator llaan 1, to pax out the latter Tor insistence upon the lmmcdnte calling of tue Kcntuckj legislature in extra session It is rcj orted that Gov Bradlcx li is interpreted Senator Hanu i's auxietA as IrtMiig in the Interest of J)r Hunter, a prominent candidate for the -eat that Senator Blackburn his filled so long and well So the storj goes that the gox ernor made the appointment feeling suit, that the appointee xx ould not be ad nulled He also called the legislature to meet on March 13 instant, i hen the real fun ma j lie expected to begin "Whether or not the Kentucky cxecutixe Is capable of a joke, or being so thinks he has p pctratcd one at the cxperse of the President maker, is a matter xve wet not of "We do know, however, that another, ann v hat one might term an adjoining, goi ernor, Avas leccntlj and iiopularlx supposed to tie landing on las dignitx with that m poMng 11 itioii il personage, and sneedilx ended in giving him just vi hat he wanted Go Brad'ex max lie a bigger man than Gox Bjshm.ll, and Mr Hanna maj not Imxe his xxax in, and the man le wants from, Kentuckj, but it would cot be -afc to bet that he is not going to get both The Heal Iteiwui. In a debate in the Senate during the last se'ssion of Congres Mr Lodge de clared that certain business interests av tie the real obstacle in the wax of American recognition of Cuban independence "We hare already refened to tl is fact It is well known that manj historians and students believe that it ax as the timidltj and greed of certain Northern business intercuts which prevented an earlj and an amicable settlement of the great civil wai question, and so made the Avar terrible bejond comparison whin it did come, and for a more recent illustration, it was these same conserxatixc liitcicsts of the commuultj, so-called, xvhich united to prevent, it necessary, a fiee expres sion of the will of the American people In the last eliction and bv that act to weigh us down vsith continuing conditions of d'stress, from which it is ex en now doubtful if we can t-cape by the onlj avenue x-hich thej iiaxe throxxn open Senator Lodge did not state iu so nunj xvords that he referred to the domination of the British monejed interests in the Cuban business, but that is the inference that Ave take the liberty to draxx It has required millions and other millions when those have been xvasted to trj to culnlue the Cuban patriots Nothing has been accomplished cpt the phjsical rum of a fair island, but the monej floxxs in and it is used tor the tame barbaric purposes Spam cannot raise this monej without givirg some coinpccsaling se cunty. Can she get the moncj and gix e the sccuntj aiiyxxherc else than in Lon don.and is it not notorious that the British financial policj controls and benefits those American financial giant, whom it thinks it bast to be polite to, x Lilt dominating and crushing those American interests xvhich are inconsiderable enough to de serve no attention? We hope this is xvlut Senator Lodge meant, because we believe it to lie true As xx e haxe said before, not onlx is it true that monej talks in business, but it Is the onl thing that talks It talks in diplomacj , also The Civil Service Sxstem. The impression that something may be done bv Mr. McKinlej or his close friends to put out of the classified civil serxice tome of those places now within It, and cspeciallv those places wi,ili Mr. Cleve land has recently brought xvithin it, is confined almost exclusixelv, Ave belitxe, to the offlceseekcrs and their friends Whatever the honest crlt'rs or the merit 6xstem ma six, it Is Mere forgood, and while the examination scheme can be improved and can be applied more gener ally all thiough the serxice itseif, noth ing can disturb the general plan This is true, not only because sueh an attempt xvould make the President's life too mis erable to live, but because the sxsteni is wise nnd deserving in the main Itwouldbe wellorour friends.tbeofficc seelcerb, to examine carefullx the lists of places that conic xvithin the cixil serxice rules and the lists of places that do not They xx ould then rind what their chance xv as of securing an appointment under politieal pressure, and thej could also determine vhether thej had better be ev amined The number of agreeable places brought xxitlnu the cixil serxice mles by Mr Cleveland at xarious times seems to most persons unexpectedly large. And it is large Amputating officer ean remoxe place-holders, it is true, but there is no temptation to do this xv hen the process bj xvhich they might bring about tlic appoint ment of friends or of paitj sympathizers Is so nearly impossible The whole Mtua tion ought to be i erfertly cjear to the office-seeker, xho should lirt ask him self, "Atii I trjmg for a ilnce foi which I must be cxaniiucd" If I am not, hoxx man j candidates are contending xvitii me" And xv hat is their backing?
