Mr. Cleveland, in bis position as
President of the United States, still
continue! to win "golden opinions
from all torts f t men." Continually
we have instances developed of his
watchful care for the Interests of the
people. 'We call Congress tho assem
bled wisdom of the nation ; Congress
bas a private secretary to each Sena
tar, each bousa has its messengers and
ushers and doorkeepers and commit
tH's, and auxiliary aid from every de
partment of the government whon re
quired. Delibcra'bn goes on from
day to day, and with all formality and
tolemnity laws ara pawed. These iro
sent forward to the President for bis
confirmation tli ink heaven and the
makers of the coiiB'.ttution that they
are and tbon Mr. C eveland is com
pelled by hii oath of olllo and incited
by bin own intnurity t perforin
bis duty, whatever Congress may
have dorio or neglected fo do. Anl
bow tb's one man shines and soars in
comparison with tbe army of Congres
si oral legislators) This one man by
enre, iudiutry and tbe ne of true
business qualities, thaws himself qual
ified to act discreetly and efficiently,
where the totea and vigor and wisdom
of Congress have been so directed as
to expose that body to the nation's
disapprobation. Hio Uleg-aph yestei
day told of fifteen veto messages stmt
ta Congres', sad this morning it tel's
of nine more. We all know the
feeling of the boy at school when the
ill-per'ormed lo;son is put back for
coriect'on. This is the present posi
tion oi Congress, a position tho cari
es' wrist could present mo it effectually.
The two classes forming ths Congres
sional ech do 1 ara told tbnt the head
t itchor bas pointed out their blunders
until he is tired of the tnk,the conse
quence of their "pramismous and 111
advised" way of performing the lee
eons imposed upon them. In fact the
greater part of the bys never attend
ed to the lessons at all, and those who
did blundered to excess, owing to
their inattentiun and "heedless
new." The Congressional boys are
a poor figure aa they receive salutary
rebuke from the bead master. An ex
change paper said a few days agJ that
Mr. Clevo'and was taking no steps
whatever toward securing bis own re
election as President in 1888; but the
tact is, Mr. Ceveland is taking tho
most effectual steps that any man in
bis position can take to assure to him
self a re-elec'.ion if be should desire
it. lie is making himself a nest In
the hearts of the people. Standing as
be does, a practical man exceeding in
solid well-doing tbe deeds of that dis
appointing body Congress; mani
festing usofu', evoryxlay-wear quali
ties, such as are sadly wanting else
where, be becomea magnified in tbe
.people's eye by the small-sited utility
of oar legislators. The very detrac
tors of the President belp to exalt
him, by letting tbe public see bow
poor and puny and defective Is their
own work compared with bis. The
lull tell what the trees are. The
soar, bitter, warm-eaten, cankered,
shriveled, musty yield oflared by the
President's opponents make the tidy
basket of trash, sweet, aromatic, Bound
and wholesome fruit offered by him
self only the more appetising and de
sirable. President Cleveland is win
ning tho hearts oi the people. -Le(
him go on as be Is now doing, and
keep bis two Congressional classes to
their lessons and see that they study
them properly, and, as tho time goes
on, tbe louder and heir tier tbe people
will exclaim: "Well done! thou good
and faithful servant "
The world has been laughing ainoe
the year 35-8 B.C, at the grief of Al
exander over the death of his fiery
horse, Bucephalus, and it is now laugh
ing at the grief of all Bavaria over the
death of an animal inferior in Intellect
and usefulness. Lad wig was indeed

the world is glad tbe pojr wretch did
the right thing to gracofivily. He act
tied bis own troubles and tho'e of his
country by committing suicide. II
h.d so intellect, no Sonne of ju'
tice, no patriotism, no K.ve of
bis people, and wfcen ho died

and the clurlty of oblivion thrown
over bis name, Bat strange tj ray

frarjtic mob to do honor to his memo

a (brine are indeed loyal ti tbe crown.
The Democrats who would make tbe
civil service hill Inoperative and vo'd,
justify their recreancy on the ground
tbat no party can tucceed unless it di
vides the spoils am log the victors
Experience has slnwn tint the distri
bution cf the offices is the greatest
sjnrca of weakness tt the party in
power. This is accounted for by Jef
ferson, who Buid tbat the President in
appo:nting a nun ta ofllce made
eleven enemies and one ingrate. The
history of tbe conntry shows that
party proscription doei not strengthen
the party that makes a clean sweep.
In 1810 Van Buren was backed by the
army of ollijeliolderc, as there was
not a single Whig in office.
Still be was defcg'ed tor tbe
Presidency by oi overwhelm
ing mejuity carried only four
States. In one month's t'me Ifurrisoa
mide a e'ean bwerp, but in 1841 Polk
was elected, notwithstanding the fact
that all the offices were held by tbe
Wbigi. I'jlk made the proverbial
clean sweep, and it Is ta'o to sty that
there was not a single Whig in cll'iea
at the Presidential election in 1848.
But the Democrats wero swept out of
power by the tidal wave oa which
Taylor was carried into the I'rea
denry. The Democrats wero not
becked by tho otli ;ehohUrs la ls52,
but Pierce was e'ectsd President by
an almost unanimous vote. The Re
publicans seen red control of tbe
National Government in 1800 without
even a It spublican poettnaiter in ofllce.
Cleveland was elected President
when all the office! were filled by
Republicans. Io five of tbe Congres
sional elections since the close of the
war the Democrats have secured tbe
control of the II o use without a parti
clo of Federal patronage. And there
is today more danger of a loss of die
trie's owing t J disea'isfaction at the
distribution of the ofllce! than there
ts from disappointment tint mare
have not been distribute!. No ptrtr
can afford to rooks the cinfea-ionthnt
it It "hero" mainly for the enjoyment
of tbe oflicss. The people expect
something else of them. The Demo
eiatlo pa'ty is not bo'd together by
the obesive power cf public plunder.
If it has no other object in view it
will die and It ought ta die. President
Cleveland is appointing Democrat to
otllce as rapidly as tho civil service
bill and bis pledges t the people will
permit. At the end of his term there
will be no Republicans in office. Ho
will have miuoyo! thnn, slowly it is
true, but according to law and the
pledges of hini'clf and party and
those Democrats who predict defeat
in tho next Presidential election be-
C'Use tnere nas not been a clean
sweep will discover that nearly every
office bas been filled by a Democrat,
and that the Democratic party will be

Among the numerous s'gns which
si on that a reform of our blundering,
unsystematic tint! must come, a no
ticcahle one appears in a quarter of
all others probnh'y the least looked
tor. It is in t ho sugtr trade of I.ouisi
aoa. R?cently the New O leans nres
announced that one of the refining
companies In New Orleans bad pur
chased 5X)0 tans of sngar from tbe
Sandwich Islands for the purpose of
refining it and putting it upon tbe
market. The Louisiana crcp of sugar
a mere fraction of the amount the
United St ates consumes afforJs but a
vory brief season for tho operations of
the sngar refineries. By purchasing
liberally of the sngar of the South sea
island that is admitted free of duty
Into tho Unite! 6tstes,tho refineries
ma-indefinitely ex'end tbe sea
son's1 operations, keep their nit-
chinery at work, and give
employment to labor with giod op
portunity of permanency. Tho ad
vantage of such a proceeding must be
apparent to every unbiased mind.
Even the Picayune, obstinate stickler
as it is for the protection that docs
not protect, says: "Any lmporta'ion
of foreign sngars to this city for refin
ing purposes, after our crop is about
exhausted, is a decided benefit ts this
city, increasing ita Importance aa a
sugar mart, and giving employment to
a large nnmber of people and indus
tries, whe would otherwise be out of
employment at the close ol our usually
toi short seasons." This purchase of
Hawaiian sugar is a practical carrying
out of the principle upon which Mor
rison sought to construct the bill
which Congress has treated ao con
temptuously. This sugar is "raw
material" to the refiner, and to pre
pare it for market employs the refinety
and i's laborers. If wool, and bides,
and lumber, and othsr raw material
the Morrison bill wonld have ad
mitted free of dmy, had been allowed
to reach tbe hands of manufacturers,
bow many sufierint laborers now
withon. wo'k wonld be plenti
fully supplied! It is a icmarka
ble thing to see lbs Morri
aoa pricc'ple cairied into piaetice
by a Lonia'aca Migar mauufact'i'er,
. bile C'.-ugre! declinoe even to uJih
tbe Morrison bill to discussion and
vote. A number of occurrences and
necsseities are developing themselves
that gives practical and quite unde
signed proof tint the era of tariff re
form is approaching. There is one
consolation for the tariff reformer the
longer the reform is postponed by the
inaction or the adve;se actioa of Con
gress, the more thorough and sweep
ing it will be when it coies, for as the
time e'apres the vicionsne3S and com
plicated errors of our present tarff
develop themselves and arouse antag
onism against evils that never ought
The ArriAL bas a liking for Sam
Jones and brs frequently expressed
its admiration for bis evangelical la
bors. But like a'l reformers be is aa
eitremeist, believe! what is worth do
ing is worthy of being well done, and
hence be frequently (lops over in
criticising worldly pleasures. His de
nunciation of round danc s, progres
sive euchre and baseball, are nothing
but low, vulgar tirades, offensive and
insulting. One of the pos'.t.ve binder-
oces to the spread of the gospel, is ta
be reckoned just such intemperate and
unqualified denunciations as Sam
Jones is constantly burling at
everything in the shape of
amusements. Instead of warring
on tbe abuse! of tin social pleisures
and customs of the present day, an
unrelenting and wholesale condemna
tion la lauched fourth, distasteful ta
many ai humble believer who thinks
differently, and repels many an
honest man of the world from
a cans! which calls to its
aid such ill tempered and insolent ad
vocates. No doubt all these worldly
ploasnres and amusements have their
evils which should bs avoided ; but so
have revival meetings, camp-meetiegi,
the church sowing societies, picnics,
fairs and festivals, their snares, their
excesses and their follies which beguile
maoy into the commission of tin
Tbe highest ideal of Christian'
ity is not in an enforced
abstinence from what is in
nocen, which may have been abused
and perverted, bat self-control in the
use of it. There is as little judgment
and consistency in denouncing in un
measured terms all the pleasures of
the pressnt day, because, foraooth,
somebody has corrupted tbem and
others have been injured by them, as
to denounce religion because there are
villains in tbe church. Mrs. Molloy,
ce'ebrated revivalist in the West for
the pant five years, overshadowed Sam
Jones in abuse cf worldly pleasures.
Tbe idea tbat a progressive Christian
could sit down and play a game of
progressive encbrs fi led her with
horror and disgust. And yet she is
now indicted for crimes, com
parad with which tbe wor.t
phase of worldly amusements
are agreeable diversions, and the evi
dence shows that at tbe very time she
wus nSusing her neighbors she was
trembling lest the skeletoa In her
closet should et ilk forth and with its
bony fingers point to iter as the guilty
wretch she was. So It did at last, blow
ing her saintly ropntation to pieces as
if it wero the flimsiest cobweb. There
is no law in the Scriptures prohibiting
even Christians from having pleasures,
Indeed, the whole tenor of B.ble
teaching is in the opposite direction.
The Gospel is the tidings of grea. joy
Tub I'u itiin is no longer the ideal
Christian. The world is adapted to
the enjoyment of pleasure. Albert
Barnes, the eminent preacher and
commentator, at the ace of
seventy yars, said lrom bis pulpit:
"This world is very attractive to mo; I
am sorry I Bhall have to leave it so
soon." There is far more merit in
each honesty as that than in ths cant
which makes young men say in prayer
or song tbat be wants to leave this
world and longs for heaven. He does
not long for any such thing and be
lies in saying so. Assailing worldly
pleasures because there are excesses
is as sil'y as a proposition to abolish
all literature because there are vile
boiks, and all art bsrause there ire
bad pictures.
Sp te and bitterness is pouring out
like myriad streams from Alpine
snows, because the Morrison bill was
called up for inttial action in Con
gress. The monopolists make tbe
tariff as it s'ands a fatish. It is some
thing too (o'emn and too sacred to be
appioacbed with other than reveren
tial st-ps. Tbe protection press is
pouring out bitter anathemas upon
those who favored tbe Morrison bill
with their votes. Is tbis because the
monopo'is s real'y believe tbat our
tariff as it stands Is perfect? They are
not so ignoiant, but tbey know that
when a cause is to weak to be sup
ported reasonably, the only course left
is bullying and bluster, and the
church in the middle ages could not
outrival the buret of anathema now
issuing from monopo'ist councils, con
siatories and inquisitions. Why this
outpouring of unrighteous indigna
Hon T Because the monopolist knows
that the tariff, as it stands, is a row of
brick set endwajs. Touch one brick
and on the movement g8. There is
no foundation, and the crazy, toppling,
bhaking, quaking, unbalanced mo
nopoly tariff will, a! the la bors sty,
"came down with a run."

Eljiiba, N. Y., June 22. Gossips
are wagging their tongues over the
story of a broken engagement, the de
tails of which ara slowly coming to
livht and interesting everybody in the
city. Cards have been out for some
time announcing that Istdor Sebersky
and Miss Ash were to be married next
Wednesday, but no v it is thought the
ceremony wfd not take plate. Se
bet-sky, a tall, good-looking man of
twenty eigh. up to a vearsgo was a
member of tlipfitin of Saberiky Bros.,
clothiers, in Wa'er street. Siocn then
he ha! removed to New York ani
gone into tbe wholesale clothing busi
ness in Broadway.
An aoqua'iice sprung up between
him aod Miss Ash, whoe fntber was
a member of tha lirm of A-h Bros.,
dry goods m rchant-, at No. 27 J Sixth
avenue. Seberskv's attentions son
became marked, aud t-e couple were
engagxl to be ma rird. Kverything
seamed to be toing on mcs- smoothly.
Oa iss; Monday, however, Mrs. Se
beraky, Is do'e's mother, died, and he
came to E mira to attend tbe funeral,
Miss Ash and her lather eccompany
irjg him in refo'fiires to the funeral
made by the local pper, the fact of
the engagement w. published, and
out of this raooe a thumlerholt; for it
appears that it attra;red the attention
oi Miss Thompson, who lives in the
Fourth ward, to whom, it ia said, Se
biiflky has bteo devo ed.
She had had tioabie w t'i FeWoky
three or four ytaro ago, and attempted
to shoot him in the oi erahou-e hall,
but they had made up their quanel,
and were as devoted as ever. Whoa
she read cf the approaching wedding
she informed Sebersky that if it came
off she would shoot him. She also
wrrts to Miss Ash, saying that Seber
sky had wronged her under prornije
of marriage, and that if tbe wedding
took place she would be present ai d
make as eue. She threatened shooting,
a breach o( promise and several other
thing. Tbe letter was placed in tbe
bands of Inspector Byrnes, of New
York, and it was decided that the
girl's brother should visit Elmiia He
did so, and bad no trouble in finding
the woman. After talking with ber
awhile, Mr. Ash told h'g object, and
the woman then produce J a large
packet of letters written by Sebersky,
somo of them dated as late as three
weeks ago.
In ono of tha letters, it is srid, the
writer told cf his approaching marring-,
but assured the woman that it
need make no difference as far asehe
was concerned. She could come to
New Vork and live in good style, and
he would manage to be with ber a
part of the t me. Ha would furnish
her whatever she wanted, and all
would go on swimmingly. Mr. Ash,
armed with half a dozen of the most
damaging letters, called on Sebersky
and catechised bim moet therough'y,
but Sebersky denied that he knew tbe
woman, tbat be bad ever s?en or
wii.ten to ber, or that he bad ever
had anything to do with her. The
wedding, however, wis declared off,
and Mr. Ash has returned to New
York bearing ta kis lister the evi
dences of ber lover's unfaithfulness.
The father of Mifs Ash, who lives at
No. 230 Weit Fifty-fifth strest, refused
last night to give any Information
about the mat'er.
