THE MUGWUMP WILL BE SHELVED lad Burison Will b Seated Amli a Blue of Be publican Splendor. IGPEqUL TELEQRAM TO THE DISPJLTCH.1 , "Washington, D. C, March 1. Inauguration snow will come With all Its motley din. And then the whirligig mil ham And tarn the rascals in. Capital Laureate. In a few more days the waves of a new supremacy will dash up around the Capi tol, dethroned Democratic officeholders will i be walking the streets of "Washington in great numbers, and the first Democratic President which the towheaded boy of this generation has seen, will lay down the truncheon of power and will, therefore, be plain "Grover Cleveland, of New York," or perhaps the Tim Campbells of Gotham will call him "Grove" for short, as Bissell, Folsom and the Buffalo boys did when they clinked glasses together 15 years ago. With the departure of the Democrats there will come a motley crowd, such as Washington has never seen before. The "original Har rison man" will be here to bank on his "originality" and to look after consulates and things. The wild and woolly" West will be represented by new faces Republi can Lochinvars, With fur on their trousers and fur on their vests. Ana with No. 10 brogans chock foil of feet. Ex-Bepublican office holders who have 'been standing at the outer gate for four years will be here to force an early issue with the "hold overs." Military will be here in imposing numbers to emphasize their love for a soldier President and their dislike of a Democratic President, and the big and little statesmen from "Podunk" and "Wayback" will be here to see how it is all done. The inauguration will be a notable gathering, in which Jeffersonian simplicity will not figure to any great extent. The Republican party after a period of retire ment and probation, is "feeling its oats," so to sj.rjk, and pomp and circumstance will not be wanting to give emphasis to its return to power. The Democratic chiefs, as they gaze back four years, and recall the earth quake oice of victory which greeted Presi dent Cleveland and the Democratic party, and now look on the Democratic "wreck," might well exclaim with the most charming of Yankee poets: "Hans Bixitmanhad a bardy, Vere is dat bardy now?" DEJECTED DEMOCRATS. Most of these chieftains and great Cabinet Ministers are now past their prime and un popular with their own party, and, in all probability, the places that know them now, will never know them more. Like the Moors, on leaving the Alhambra, their happiness will be mostly in retrospection, while some of them, like Bayard, will be so professionally and politically stranded, that they may, like Sidney Smith, have to cultivate literature on a little oatmeal. Another party will be missed. The Mug wump will not be here, or take any part in this transformation scene, but he will meet in his several assemblies and conventicles, and appoint March 4 as a. day of general humiliation, fasting and prayer throughout the Dominion of Mugwumpery. He will not bow the knee to Quay or Baal; he will wear crape on his arm, and eat unleavened bread as a symbol of his consuming grief, and generally, like Rebecca, he will refuse to be comforted. Nevertheless, the planet will revolve on its axis regularly, the snn will rise and set, Harrison will draw his salary and govern this great country "by and with the advice and consent of M. S. Quay," and despite all these he may even disappoint the Democratic and Mugwump augurs. Here and there in this motley throng there is a feeling, not strictly political, ot sympathy for the small fry Democratic soon to be ex-office holders, who are the victims partly of Brice's "educational cam paign," and partly of Quay's skilful dice throwing in Brooklyn and elsewhere; but this sympathy outside the pale of official patronage, so far as my observation goes does not extend in any degree to his out going excellency, Grover Cleveland. PLUCK, BUT ALAS! FOB THE JUDGMENT. The feeling in Republican circles toward the President is largely that of contempt for the man his judgment, his methods, and what they call his humbuggery, tempered with a sort of stage admiration" for his ex hibition of "pluck," which has given them victory. They are quite willing to accede that in forcing the "tariff issue" he is en titled to the same verdict as the Irishman who butted the locomotive "plenty of pluck but poor judgment" As was said of the British charge at Balaklava Cleve land's plan it was audacious, it was splendid, bat it was not generalship, and "so say we all of us." Bight or wrong, the average Democrat re gards the President as a party "wrecker," and this feeling among the rank and file is best illustrated by the remark of one Carter Harrison, of Chicago, that no one could go into a Democratic gathering in any bar room in that city and get up a row by black guarding Grover Cleveland, while among the Democratic leadcis like Randall, "Vance, et al., whom Cleveland endeavored to cripple and destroy politically, the feel ing over Grover's downfall is almost jubil ant, PeoDle natnrallv test niihlic men lir their professions and their acts, and here ' President suffers. His prospectus was very 'imposing his fulfillment very meager. Harrison, en the other hand, may fail as a reformer, but he will be judged more len iently because he is less ostentatious in his profession of the Spartan virtues, and this popular test is not altogether an unfair one. THE OBEATEST BLUNDER. The President is a Man of Destiny and a believer in "stars" and, therefore, unlike other men yet it is every way certain that he is very much like other men in this, that he is not altogether happy over the circum stances attending his exit His great mis takethe source, in fact, of all his other mistakes was in listening to the advice of the Democratic sirens who urged him to stand for a second term, after he had osten tatiously proclaimed against it As a man of sturdy common sense, he must have known that the Democratic office holder w'ho advised him that his policy or per sonality were in any way necessary to the perpetuity of the Republic, was" a selfish triffer, chiefly intent on "holding on." Had he invited these Democratic tempters "to get thee behind rue," and strictly stood on his declaration for a single term, there is hardly room to doubt he would to-day be a much'happier man, and instead of being a repudiated candidate for the high office, his name would go down the ages, along side that of the great Roman who Thrice was be offered the kingly crown And thrice did he refuse, And would have been second only to Lin coln and Washington inpopular estimation. Had he stood on the "high ground" origi nally chosen, instead of descending to the common level of a "setter-up" ot conven- . tlons and caucuses in his own interest, and failing, therein deploring the waywardness , ef fate, he might in his"Farewell Address" emphasize a great precept by a great exam rile, and ti;a none to impeach his sincerity, he could with high consistency have re joiced at what Lord Macaulay calls the "freedom from that closelv watched slavery which is dignified by the name of power." But it was not to be, and so Grover will merely figure in history among the other "Might Have Beens." LOl THE POOR DEMOCRATS. And the poor Democratic party, betrayed, torn byinternal striic, stands in the position of the "Culprit or Calaveras." "Prisoner," said the prosecutor, "you are charged with gambling." i "Gambling! What is gam bling?" "Playing cards for money." "Bui I did not playcards for money I played for chips.,f "Well, vou got money for your chips at the end of the game, didn't you?" "No; I didn't have any chips at the end of the game." And so Mr. Brice's party got all the "education" they wanted, and Mr. Quay's party got all the "chips." In all seriousness, did the "grand old party" deserve anything better? For 24 years everv member of that party was proscribed from holding office from the position of Judge of the Supreme Bench down to the humblest floor-scrubber in a two-penny post office, and then when the party got a chance they were ashamed or afraid to administer on the estate, and practically admitted the taunting Republican accusation that they were unfit to rule. Was it any wonder that a party could not hold its vote on such a, policy, and that on the first decisive test it met its Waterloo? There is a vague impression here in Re publican circles that the President in the few remaining days of his term will in dulge in some freak of temper, as he did in Edgprton's case, or make some "break" that will mar the dignity of his going out, and the refusal of the" administration "set" to particpate in the inaugural ball is consid ered a justification for these supicions. Now that the President is about to take a tumble, I cannot recall any role he could study with more effect that that of Fanny Daven port in "La Tosco." In the art of falling down gracefully, Fanny is a bewildering success, and if Grover can "fall" as grace fully as Fanny he will be doing pretty well for a magistrate who seems to .think it a sign of greatness to do things differently from other people. After his term expires he will be in de mand as a figure head for speculative "syn dicates" and legal firms, but even these will pass away, and as Congressman Butter worth said to me to-day: "The condition and not a theory that Mr. Cleveland will have to face shortly will be can a man who has ruled 60,000,000 of people and wrecked a great political estate, submit to the des potic will of a janitor on the top floor of a nine-story New York flat. HARBISON'S BREAKERS. On the other hand,the bed of the incoming administration may not be strewn with roies. Cleveland failed to please three par ties the Democrats, Republicans and Mug wumps. What will Harrison do with these and the "Hold-overs, who are now "quite a formidable fourth estate of the realm. The secret of statesmanship these days seems to be to do nothing and make capital out of the mistakes of the other side. As a Sena tor, Harrison has "trimmed" occasionally or sdemed to "trim" and as Mr. Cleveland has done many things in a positive way "positively right or positively wrong," as Civil Service Commissioner Edgerton well says, regardless of tbeir effect on his own or his party's prospects, he seems entitled to credit at least for his devotion to his "idee." It is not entirely clear that any of our Presidents get $50 000 worth of lun out of the office. They have a regular grind of official and social duties to perform which they cannot disregard. Mr. Harrison must receive all the "boys" who have organized Harrison clubs, or he will be considered an ingrate. He must treat all the big chiefs with distinguished consideration, or there will be trouble n the family. He must en tertain all the visiting statesmen from Po dunk and elsewhere. He must give "taffy"' in quantities to suit to the Irish, German and colored delegations. He must attend balls, diplomatic and other receptions,shoot ing and fishing parties; visit cattle shows, Sunday schools, blind asylums, college openings and closings, "divide time" with all the "sovereitrns" who call; divide ud the political estate among the victors; study to please all, knowing full well that at the end of his term he will measureably fail that he must disappoint thousands,and may not feel altogether pleased with himself in short, he may have to put up- the sign on vour back: "Unredeemed pledges for sale here," ns conspicuously as his predecessors; and, taking one thing with another, we may say with Longfellow that things are not al ways what they seem. WASHINGTON A VAST CAMP. On leaving Pittsburg, my esteemed co partner of other days, "Judge" Ramsey, re marked that the present was about the mos unpropitious time possible to see this city of "magnificent distances," and I am here to concur in the above. Essentially a busy city I take it almost any time, Washington to-day is almost a camp although the crush and rush have not yet fully set in, and to day looking down East Capital street toward the grand inauguration stand crowds are patrolling the streets in the rain, while other crowds also in the rain are putting the finishing touches to the monster platlorms being erected for the sight-seers. The note of preparation is heard everywhere, and soon the city will be git en over to pageantry, bustle and blare and bunting, and to the Republican inaugurators. The President-elect and his family arrived here Tuesday, and are quietly awaiting the "big eventful day," and judging from the modest and thoughtful tone of his farewell address to his neighbors at Indianapolis, he fully realizes the measure ot his great re sponsibilities. There be visitors here who do seem to have been dug up by some antiquarian from the Silurian period or the red sand stone era of our politics, but the most pict uresque "relic" of them all not even ex cepting Cassius M. Clay is ex-Speaker Banks, of Massachusetts. Were I in a mood to debate on the vicissitudes of Ameri can politics, I know not where I could se lect a fitter subject to illustrate my theme. Go back over the list of ex-Speakers since James L. Orr laid down the gavel 28 years ago, and Banks, Pennington, Colfax, Blaine, Kerr. Randall, Carlisle have fol lowed each other, till the cycle of Republi can conservatism, as represented in Benja min Harrison, comes round again. And here is Banks once more to the front, and with a true popular enthusiasm behind him. In the long and dastardly fight waged against Charles Sumner by Grant and his lackeys Banks was "semper fidelis" al ways stood stoutly at whatever risk by the great Senator from Massachusetts, and went down with him in the dirty freshet of Grant ism in 1872. Gooch, Butler, Williams and the other time servers are "broken on the wheel," ana I feel like saying of Banks with all his foibles: As thou wert steadfast in one woe. Be foremost In one joy. For cold and still and still are they That wrought thy friend aunoy. To-morrow, if the rain ceases, I will take a stroll in the environs away from the "madding crowd" and report results. Jas. W.

Though pale and fatigued, Representative Randall sat in his seat almost every moment of to-day, waiting for the time to come when he could make his expected attempt to call up that bugaboo of the closing hours of the session, the Cowles bill. But the time did not come. Wheh no conference report was ready to oc cupy the House, the other bills, which might have been postponed till doomsday, were crowded in one after another, the Speaker recognizing anything that would keep the tobacco tax repeal bill out of the way. Mr. Randall does not expect to accom plish more than to test the sense of the House on the consideration of the bill, but whether he will get the opportunity to do even so much is exceedingly doubtful. The situation serves, however, to sustain a feel ing of intense interest in the House, for no one knows at what time the most exciting episode of the session may occur.
