FRIDAY, t I SOV. 19,
Soeconaa it ws diucon-red that
Ptce'dent Cleveland cou'd neither be
ccaxtd tor babied kto a ehamtful
violation of ti e pledges on which he
was elected Pnsidintof the United
Ba'ty, the Deruccratic apiU men who
Wanted the loaves ard fiihiB, becama
thoroughly disgusted with him.
Theee Democrats concuirel with Mr.
Clevelatd in the opinion that "pub
lic office is a public trutf," but in
sisted that tbia "pub'ic tiuat" should
be exercised cbh fly in rewarding pro
fessional politicians, and like the
blind beggar, Belearius, they s'ood at
the dcor of the White House, asking
the PretideLt to Rive an obolas to
every bnngry Democrat that wanted
oflice. Thete epoilsmen have
been warring on the President since
his inaosnratlon. The more he
shows himself a sitxere reformer, the
mere be is abuBod by tboje who care
More for (roils than administrative
reform. These disgruntled Demo
crat have bterme regular croakers.
Thcj ee in the rtc nt elections the
icevitshle. defeat of the Democratic
party in 1888, if Cleveland urionid 1 e
tho Candida e. Grover Cleveland is
far (longer with the people
than is the Demccratic paity,
aiid ceitainly the Democratic
majoiity in the Houce. He iii eo much
(trong.ir than the paity that uomibat
d him and the men who rafuna to
nominate him that the next Nationul
Democra ic Convention wlil not coin
mil saiiide by njt'ctirg him to satisfy
the spoil men. Now that the Demo
crats opposed to tho administration
re orgiin'sintt to prevent the renomi
nation ef Mr. Cleveland, the friends of
the President, and bis wIeb policy,
muetsimbinein defense of one of the
purest Presidents that has yet occupied
the high poci.iuii of Chief Magistrate
of the nation. There is nothing in
the recent elections that condemns
the administration of Mr. Cleveland.
A good woikiDg Democratic majority
bau been returned to the next House
of Representatives ; an unusual re
sult, an exception to the general rule,
for the general rule tor the last thirty
Ive years has been the defeat of the
administration at the Congres
sional elections next succeed
ing the Presidential election. Ia
an interview published two
weeks before the election Ben
Bailer argued that the Democrats
would be defeated and a majority of
Republicans elected to the next House,
because iu thirty years there had been
nly three exceptions to that rale, and
two of those occurred during the war,
and inimeuitttely thereafter, when
there were exceptional reasons for
supporting tho administration. Now,
that another exception has occurred
In favor of Mr. Cleveland'! adminis
tration, are we to accept that as an in
dieation rf his want of strength
among the peoplti T Such seems to be
the idea of "the mor.t experienced
politicians of the country." Taking
the vote of the States ss est on the
9d instant, Cleveland would have been
elected Piesident, as 203 Democrats
were elected to Congress and only 108
Republicans. Jnseph Pulitcr, of the
New York World, who is hostile to
the Prisiilent bhjs: "The shortest an
swer would be Hint tho President
should abandon his negative, personal
policy and adopt a positive party pol
icy ; tbat he should institute and carry
ont the reforms which he wes elected
to enforce." Mr. Cleveland has no
"personal policy," aud all the opposi
tion to him originates in the fact that
he boa been true to the "positive party
policy," on which be was elected, tbat
of administrative reform. The Demo
cratio party cannot be bent fl ed by
violating the civil service law, nnder
which subordinates are protected in
the Federal employ, are protected in
their tenuis. It is true that many of
these emplryesare Republicans, but
they obUined their jlacei by patslng
the examination fixed and provided
by the law, sa the law directs a law
introduced by a- Democratic United
Statu Senator and parsed by a Demo
cratic House of Representatives.
President Cleveland hrs in
no single instance . violated
the platfoim of bis party; he has
been true to his pledges. Under bia
administration the country has pros
pered, business has revived and sec
tions! hatreds have dicarpeared. Ev
ery utte ranee of tho Pre sident on flnan
c'al or buaineea subject?, whether by
message to Congresi or otherwise, has
been made with the purpose of indar-
ing business cntfliler.ee and has bad
that efloct. Ouly nineteen months of
Democra ic administration of national
affairs have pasted, and lostead of de
pieii n and bankruptcy in business
ciicles,the re-enslavemei.tof the negro,
the payment of the rebel debt and the
pensioning of Confederate soldiers,
the veiy opposite condition exists to
day. Grovor Cieve and will bs nomi

. - Recently the State Comptroller of
Tenncnee found hiiuielf compelled to
report tbat the State Treasury was
about empty, and to nrge tbat tax
e-.'lledions should be prompt'y made
to prevent embariassment A fact in
connection with this etatement and
appeal is f ipnificnT't. Calculated as
they were, cn the Duif :c, to lead to
an initr-sniun urifavt nblo to the
crtd.t of the Hia'e, ti e Suite's focuri
.. tics q'i tat ioni underwent no decline
in eouu que. to o! the Comptroller's
e'rcu'ar, a fact wl ic!i is a favorable
tsttlrr.on al as to tlm yoml s'anding of
tho S;a-e in the catenation of flnon
cia'i.ts. Thi re is a le ton in tbe ap
peal u.atlti ta the B:ate by its financial
olllcer that should not be dinegurded
at the next meetir g of tbe State Leg
iel.iture. Tbe lesnon is, that the in
cone from the State from taxation
abonld be ample to meet its expenses.
To have to overdraw accounts and
borrow temporary loans is discredit
able to 8tate doing as well ai Ten
nessee in, and it is wasteful bebides, as
money has to os pa!d for eccointnoda
tim thrt would b nnnecesjary uoder
a prudent rate of taxa'ion.
TOHT. Irelrnd is under all the excitement
of supprf s.'ed political feeling. Dis
appointed by the failure cf Glad
stone's efforts to accord tbem tbe rights
they so ardi ntly claim, the Irish peo
ple yet remain calm and peaceful a
fact most boncrable to them and pow
erful in support of tbelr claims for
self government. The Protestants of
Belfast were tumultuous, but their
Tory friends have managod to keep
them down. Intolerable provocations
caused disturbance In Kerrt. but
now entire quiet reigns there. Bow
that qulot Las been brought about is
one of the events cf I round's current
history, and it mcst interesting end
icstruc ire to Woow. Gen. Buller was
ulven urjninaT powers, and was cent
to Keiry to quell tbe distuibances
there. Or. the f ce of It the eppcict
roent looked bad for the Irish. Buller
is sn Englishman; not only that, be is
a soldier and only soldier, and sol
diets, when entrusted with civil
power, lire usually too roacy to apply
the arbitrary mo' bods of the army,
Yet this soldier in an incredible
short time bss succeeded where the
mauifitraiei and other local authorities
had signally failed, and he did it with'
oat any undue severity. How Ba
ciueeue Lad a heart to feet, auc a
coiiHcieuca tbat made him just. There
lay his wholo fee rot. He had served
io Egypt and had witnessed tbe depri
vat'ons fiu flared by the Arabs in their
waterless deserts. He had served in
South Africa and beheld the privations
endured by swage tiibts. Bat, after
ell ho had seen, when he entered on
his new and unaotintomed duties be
was shocked and touched to the point
of anguish when tbe terrible poverty
of the poor people of Kerry appeared
in all ita iqusllid want, in all its an
christian helplessness, decertion and
friendlessncHS before him. He eaw
what the fiendish measures of tbe
landloidj and their supporters and
parariites bed dene, cad he rtveised
tbem. For hearJessneFs he substi
tuted pity, for the greed that sought
to extort tbe merciless "rent" from
these anflerers, he gave the unwonted
boon of justlcs. Hvery case brought
befora him he decided on ita pure
merit, never forgetting the attribute
of mercy. When he raw that attempts
at eviction were contrary to justice he
refused to aid in csrrylng them out.
Even when the technicality of the law
was on the s'.do of the grasping land
lord, ho still refused to act when the)
eviction would indict undue distress
upon tbe unfortunate tenants. As
such distiesi almost always attends
evictions, those discredits to the man
hosd of Irish landowners have almost
ceased in the district. Does not this
fact show who are tbe authors of Irith
aiigtwsioi.B and disturbances? Bui
ler hao control of the police and mill
Ury; lis will allow them to be made
uti burthe instruments of injustice
nor cruo'ty. The result is that Keny
is peaceful. Does not this fact speak
trumpet tougued for tho oppressed
Irish poaple T But the landlords, bow
dd they taks it? They taku it SB bulls
take red digs. They are seething hot
with fury. They denounce and vilify
and threaten. They will have tbe
law on Duller. They expected him to
bs their tool and helper, acd 1l stead
of doirg so be stands up lor justice
and mircy. Spits of their wratb
their enraged countenances, flaming
eyes and outrageous tongues, Buller
holds on bis way, and, except among
tho indignant landlord?, peice reigns
in Kerry.
New York is suffering the curse of a
coal monopoly. Monopoly, monopoly,
everywhere monopoly ia eating into
our commercial prosperity, robbing
the well to do, and sinking the poor
into tho depths of destitution. Fair, up
right, manly competition is every
where more or loss strangled and slain
by the hateful gresd that seeks to be
come rich quickly by means of pools,
and syndicates, and "trust" that, like
bands of freebooter invaders, levy con
tribntlcns from citir.erswho gain their
living by honest toil. In tbe eumme
various important coal companies in
New Yoik consolidated, to as to cnt
ofl all competition. The organization
completed, the firet thing done was to
decrease tbe amount of coal mined
The next was to raise the pries on ac
count of the scarcity ; one or two other
advancos have followed, and now New
York when buying coal, bas to pay ao
mucli for the fuel, and so much to
exalt the already rich monopolists into
millionaires. The result upon the poor,
the New York Iltrald thus describee
"The Winter is at our doors.
Jack Fost has already made
a flying visit,' and aoo
be will write his name on the window
panes. Unless there is coal in the
grate the children in 10,000 lowly
homes will freest and young men will
seek the warmth of the saloon. The
waut rf fuel for four months in th
year will diive women to dospair and
men to crime. By the spring there
will be a good many funerals because
waees are low and coal Is dear, luat
the whole s'ory, aud an infamous
story it is." This is the lource that
produces eoria'iits, communists an
anarcuiat. Tbese nioropo ies rob the
people. The man who steals a loaf the
law pucinhes w.th the penitentiary
tint in nidi a case as this in Hew xor
the law has no puu sbmouU Thii
and s inilar things give ii to the
popular spying tt-at under the laws
aud ciwt)iua of t'.io da? "tho rich
grow richer and the poor poorer."

Sunday games. As to tbe question of
dropping one of tne clubs now in tbe
league it was intimated that the ques
tion would not probably be determined
at this meeting.
The meeting was not concluded un
til nearly midnight. Most of the dav
was occupied in considering amend

which were adopted. The moBt Big
nitlcant was to make "persistence in

blow at tbe Kansas City Club,
tbe resignation of which from tbe

and if refused the new amendment
will be enforced. A resolution was
