1'. evident Cleveland was yesterday
married at tbe White House t) Mi s
Fr.nces Folsim, daughter o( Lis de
ceit t'd partner, young lady o! whote
graces o( mind and person tbe
Atpeal hrs had much it say in
common with iti contemporaries all
Ovt-r the country. Iho ceremony was
wh 1 ' - devoid of anything like
pig e intry, and was conducted accord
ing to tbe simple toriniof tin Ties
byurian Chorch, only the friends
of the bride and groom and tbe
men befs of tbe Cabinet and their
wivoj being present. This was in ac
cordance with tbe wishes of the Presi
ded, who abhors conspiculty and
show, aid is quiet and retired in his
tistts and habit, and because
of a recent bereavement in
the bride's family. Mr. Cleveland
is the fits'. President ma-ried in tbe
White-House; the eventof yesterday
pnsxeesei, thirufore, an unusual sig
nificance, and is invested wi;h
bh-toric importance. Called to fill
tbe chair cf Washington at an
inuoitant epaih in the history of the
conn ry, a man wholly unuHed to
national affairs, he bin so won upon
the people as to fill his fellow Demo
crat j with hope of a continuance of
his administration and break
down the opposition which predicted
failure for him and result
ing disappointment to tbe nation. He
has won his way to the hearts cf the
people of whom be is in habit, man
ner and disposition a fair representa
tive, and they send him greetings of
joy and happiness from all parts
of tbe nation on an occa
sion fraught with so much
importance to him and bis fair bride.
They will read of the timple, liars
tentatious ceremonies with pleasure,
and will decline to indorse, the crlti
-cisms that in Washington have been
made upon that simplicity, so marked
a contrast with the "pride and pomp"
of which Washington has seen so much
of since Andrew Johnson left theWhite
House. Mr. Cleveland in this has
been thoroughly American and has
et an example that in future should
be cloBely followed. He has obeyed
bis own wishes' and owes no apol
ogy to the diplomatic corps for
failure to invito them to a merely
family gathering. Whatever the ex
treme of ellplimitic courtesy it does
not extend (hat length, and the facul
ty at Washjkig'on will, no doubt, learn
of it in time to withdraw their hasty
resolution of indignation at what
they reaierd a snub. The mar
riage of ' the President of the United
States does not involve interna
tional relations. It is a purely private
matter that not even in the least de
gree Justifies anything like the fuss
that is made by diplomatic represent
atives over the marriage of princes.
Neither j the government nor the
President owe the diplomats either an
apology or explanation. He was mar
ried In the presence of his relatives
and those of his bride and of the mem
bers of his oflicial family, consulting
his own wishes and that of Mrs.
Cleveland, and his action in this as in
everything else that he has done will
belndortcd by the great body of tbe
The people, the honest and incor
ruptible masees, will stand by f resi
dent Cleveland in bis eflorts to re
deem the pledges he and his patty
made to the people pending the lBt
residential election. The Republican
party was prolific in promises, bat
sterile and unfruitful in performances,
and it sbared the fate which Booner or
later overtakes every party recreautto
its pledges. The Democratic party
hs ritvned the confidence of the
American people by an unswerving
devotion to principles. It has clung
to them with a sublime faith in the
long, dark night of adversity, ami if it
would retain the power it basso nobly
won it must be true t) its traditions.
Cleveland stands firm as a rock to his
pledges. But there r3 Democrats, In
and out of Cjngretft, who make a
mockery of civil ssrvies reform, pr
pose to nullify their own pledges, and
would anpoint men to office solelv on
tbe score of superior partiian influence.
This is not the feast to which the nation
al Democracy was invited. This is sub
atantially the system pricticed by the
Republican parly, a system which tbo
Democrats "resolved" again and again
to reform when invested with the
power to do s j. The desertion of the
President in his efforts to do wh it be
and his party promised to do is down
right treachery shameful political
disbonejty. The Damociatic party in
it i last Natioial Convention male
this unqualified declaration: 'We
lavor honest civil service reform,"
meanirg that kind of reform is con
trtd.Btioguishod from the bogus re
fotm practiced by the Republic ta
In 1872 the Democrats said in their
national p'atforin: "We regard a thor
ough reform of tbe civil ssrvice is one
ot the most pressing necessities of the
boar; that honesty, capacity and
fidelity conttitnte the only valid claim
to public employment; that the offices
of the givernment case (o be a mut
ter of arbitrary favoritism and patron
az1?, and tbat public station become
again a post of honor." Ia
tbe puty was even more ex
plicit, maUii g the following de
cln j. itu: "K;f(,rji is noceesary
1n tin- civi: service. Kxporienca
proves tint efficient, economical con
d i t of the Mvcrcment business is

pO"'s of honor assigned lor proved
competency and held for fidelity in
the public employ ; tbat tbe dispens
ing patronage should neither be a
taxupoithe time of all our public
ni-n nor the instrument of their am
bition." And Mr. Tilden, in accept
ing tbe nomination, eaid, "The con
vection justly sllirnis that reform is
nee saiary in tbe civil service
in order that the ordinary employ
ment cf the public bueiuesi may not
ba 'a prir.4 fought for at Iho
ballot, a Ir.tf reward of party
seal inttead of posts of honor assigned
f r proved compitsncy and h'ld
for fidelity in the public employ.' "
After setting forth with labotei
rhetc r.c some of the abuses of a par
tis in civil service, and some steps im
mediately practicable, Mr. Tilden
said: "We miy wisely go on to the
abolition of unnecessary offices, and
He ally to the patient, careful organi
sation of a better civil rervice system

When the National Democracy con
vened at Chicago two years ago it was
clamcr jus for civil service reform. A. Q.
Tuurman was the popular idol of his
party. He stoo l Immeasurably above
Cleveland in the affections of the Na
tional Democracy; but he was cruelly
sacrificed for Cleveland, who was re
garded as the strongest man because
he had won a national fame as a civil
service reformer, and because he hid
Slid during tbe campaign for the Gov
ership of New York: "I fully approve
of the principles embodied in tits ren
dition hill, and I should ho glad to
aid in any practical leglolation to give
them a place in the management of
the State and municipalities;" who as
Governor did give his approval to
such legislation, and who in accepting
the nom'nation declared that "tbe se
lect 'oo and retention of subordinates
in government employment ehould
depend upon their ascertained fitness
and the value of their work," with
more to the fame effect; all con
spiring to make the people believe
that the Democratic party meant by
honest civil service reform what
ws indicated by its previous
di (lotions of the reforms need
ed, and what was embodied in
the act securing appointments to those
who showo 1 by practicable ts!s thtir
superior fitness to do tho proer work
of the government. At all events.
nothing is more certain than t)in if
it had been supposed the candidate of
the Democratic party meant anything
eke than such a policy, or that he was
not capable of pulling his party after
him lu'o an adherence to the princi
ples that it hud repeatedly avowed, he
would have been overwhelmingly de
feated. In view ot these facts, if the
Democratic party should prove rccre-
uut to its pledges it will convict itself
of juggling with words to deceive and
betray the people. Pending the lae.t
canvass for the Presidency the Democratic-
pirty was enua'ly as ex
plicit in its promises to io
vito and reduce the tariff and
its pledges that the revenue "shou d
be limited to the requirements of
economical government," no higher
than was necessity "to pay all ex
reuses of the Federal Government
economically administered." A re
duction of the tariff is one of the
reform measures to which Cleveland
is pltdged, and it Is hoped he will, In
the future, urge this reform with as
much seal as he has manifested for
civil service reform.
Tiik 1mdon Daily Nrm, in a well-
con'iderid article, ba'red on current
statistics, admits that settlements on
account of intcrnetioiial trade do not
center in London so exclusively us
they did in years past. This is duo to
a heavy falling off of direct imports
and exports, and to a decline ia the
exports of foreign and colonial mer
chandise. Last vear the valuo of this
trade was less than S,00 ',000, being
a decline ot n per cent, on the year
18S:t; this yea it is estimated that
the decrease will eiual at least 10 per
cent. This decline of entropot trade
indicates a diversion of mercantile
shipping to the more direct routes
oflerel by Mediterranean, Belgian
anil German ports. As merchandise
thus te-nds to avoid London, so bills
on London become fewer, and its hold
upon foreign tinancul centers weaker,

Cleveland, Jnne2 The Ki iiihts of

ants to the Kxtcutive Board were
elected. To-morrow the remaining
three will be put through. The three
men elected to day were: Jeremiah S.
Qiiinn, a book-binder, of New York;
Wm. H. Mullen, a printer from Rich
mond, and Hugh Kavanaugb, a
shoemaker, of Cincinuatl. The "Home
C ub," so-called, of New Yoik, are
crt-dited with toe election of Quinn.
Delegates to-night made serious
charges sgainst some of the officials of
the ore'er, and declared that General
Master Workman Powderlv was
scheming fjr political honors. They
seio that Powderly wanted to be Gov-
erncr of Pennsylvania, and that he
as conducting tbe orJer on Roman
Ca'bolic principles.
Mr. Powderly, at 10 o'clock tc-toiglif,
gave the following statement to ihe
Ma powokkly's statiment.
I know nothing about the "Home
Club,"iordi I know anything: coa
ct rning its aims or methods I have
hari thht its purpose was to create
a lurd to build a home for aped
member' of tie order. Not being
a member of it I ennntt
say whethsr it ever inrpirci any op
fos tion to me. That I rave been
opposed as General Master Workman
bv those who a'e said to be rremhars
of it is tint, but that was ye:rj ao,
and 'heir r ppo-otirn was nut a secret
to me. 'li.ey told me p'ainly and
emphatically thet they would
oppess me. it such an lrsi-
tution existed, it must have
b en expo'ed by a member
of the club. If it was onto bmr.d to
Beer H', tbe m n who expired it is a
perjuror, n ! to. exert ing an inin
ente in this convention, und the
co'umiis of tia h ttar. late been put
hstud concerning it are fa'se. I was
net opposed by any irem-
ber, cloue. rirg or cluh
when 1 wes eleitid Gep.ertl
Maet r Workman for the seventh
ttm. Tee tame men who were in a -
tt ndance at Hamilton are in tttend
ance at this special convention. If
they were aiming at Powderly's de
fea', why r!ii ttey not at' e nipt it
tin o I believe this whole thing is an
at emptcnthe a tof the enemies of
the !ari; r movement to create dietru6t
and discord. In thut attempt the
miners will fail. W e will leave this
c tv after closing ons of the m b1; sue
