Augcbta, Mb., November 16. The

tomorrow :
Acousfi, Hi., Novembir 16, ISM.
To th Editor of th Kannsbeo Journal :
I thank you for calling my atten
Hon to a circular issued by tbe so
called Independent Committee, dur
iog the recent canva'a in Matsacha-
seite, touching my position on the
question of civil service rtf jrm. Ab
sencs from home for several weeks
hrs prevented my seeing it sooner.
The circular embodies a singular per
Version of what I Quoted in a SDeech
on the 19th of October at Huntingdon,
. How tbe error oi misrepresenta
tion originated it is not for me to say,
My speechis in Pennsylvania were ac
curately reported for the Philadelphia
Preu by skilled stenographers, and I
personally taw the report in no other
paper. 1 send you nerewitn tbe
speech nf Oc ober 19th as it appeared
in the Pret, and Mprctfully ask yon
to re; ublieh it in your eo'umns side
by side itb tbe circular issued by the
MtS acbusetts Independent Commit'
I thank you farther fnr submitting
to me a puolic letter ot Uctober Ztitb,
from Mr. Martin Brimmer, of Boston,
in which I am aciosed of "repudiat
ing tbe reform of the civil service with
a sneer." remaps Air. Brimmer in
cons'deritely bes-d bis remarks upon
the ciicular of the Independent Cum-
mittee and has thus been led into pub-
usnirg a statement wcicu does me
great injustice. If my supposition be
correct, Mr. Brimmer will, us a gentle
man, withdraw bis language. ' It is
scarcely necessary to tay that I have
never repudiated reform in the civil
service nor abated my interest there
in, nor have I ever regaded the sneer
as a forcible mode of argument. Were
I tempted to resort to it, I should di
rect it not aeainst the reform of the
civil service but against tbe hypocrisy
ot tbo3e who wish conditions of that
service to be enforced egainst their
political oppenen's, bnt not agiicst
tbeir prli ical irieadr. Tbe point
which I sought to establish in my
ppte:h at Huatinedon'.was entirely
confused and obscured in the
iudependnnt circlar. Ia cflict, I said
tbat the E. g'ish civil service, which
was held np us a model for our gov
ernment by thoss wbo lef c tha Bepub
lican party two years ago, is now un
der investigation and apparent con
demnation by the English themselves;
that the British Miomtry have insti
tn'eda eommisiion to examine into
tbe alUgedbus ness.and that Mr. Geo.
W. Smaller, apparent y agreeing hith
erto with the American admirers of
tbe English service, now declares the
beliel in Eastland to be that the sivil
service ia worse in all the deparments
of the government than it was forty
years ago. Mr. Sma ley gives a some-
w nut detailed recital oi tbe defects
and abuses alleged to exist in the En
glish service, defects and abUBfi which
were never attributed to onr own civil
eervice, even by its mercilees censor.
My argument implied, and was in
tended to imply, tbat the Republican
party had been wise in not adopting
the E' glirh syttem with its life lenars
and its large pension list and all the
attendant evils, which at last have
demanded invesimtion bv a min
isterial commission, nor would jus ice
end fair courtesy have been none to
my speech, even if my remarks on
civil service, torn from their log!cal
connection, had been correct'.y quoted
by the Independent Committee Those
remarag were out part ot au argu
ment in which I endeav red to il
lustrate how truly American in its
best BenFe were the whole Doiicv and
m. ... ... .
nis orj oi toe KepuDUrari paity, and
how, under tha lead of the eo called
Ind pendent, the Democratic party
both in its revenue system and its
civil service rules, was to bs con
formed to Brit ieh policies ju t at the
very time wtien tne liniieh them
selves are finding a fatal weakness in
thesa pelicirs.
In short, though I did not eay it in
words, I meant to convey my belief
that tbe very worst leaders and guides
for a continent! Republ c are thosn
woo pereut in seeing tne perfection of
human government in en ini-ular
monarchy, whose conditions a-e iu all
respects radically different from tboEe
oi onr own broad land. Tbe Massa

Ma. Blainb's letter, to be found in

among the silliest of all tbe emana
tions of that shameless schemer for

long passed the period when the word
"Br'tish" had any tenors for the peo

than Mr. Blaine that it is not the
British system of civil service that
Mr. Cleve'and is enforcing, but one

Aepaoiicao uongrecs and indorsed by
a Republican President. Mr. Blaine
is a catchpenny politician, and his

the cheapest ha has yet devised.
Organise National Congress for

Washington, November 16. Dele
gates representing seventeen fraternal
societies, with a membership of 630-
000, met at the Riggs House, in this
city, today and organised the National
Congress of Fraternal Beneficiary So

effected by the election of the follow

vice president; R C. Hill.editor of the
Bofftlo Sunday Truth, recording secre
tary; O. M. Snedd, of New York, cor
responding secretary, and Kalvor Nel
son, of Washirgtin, treasurer. A
constitution was adopted, of which
the principal provisiou is that none
but legitimate fraternal beneficiary so
cieties, working nnder a ritnal and
lodge system, shall be eligible to mem
bership in the national congress, fhe
main object of tbe congress is to or
gan'ze among the various beneficial
orders a system of mutual in
formation, benefit and protection.
It is said that a number of
business and speculative companies
are organized under titles which
would lead many persons to believe
them fraternal beneficial societies.
Protection is desired sgainst these
companies. Among the fra'ernitios
represented by delegates are the An
cient Older of United Workman, with
172,000 members ; Knights of Honor,
with 130.000 mornbers; Royal Arca
