From Washington.
(lrsm onr Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, May 10, 1880,
Some of tbe President latest work h
been that of carefully examining frUhtt
ttewion bill. He was supposed to bare
work enonjh to do already without assuming
knj new burdens; but it seems be feels the
necessity of taking a hand hunseir in tbe re
treacbment campaign which Mr. Hewitt and
ante other influential Democrats hare begun
In th House of Renresentalit es. BIr. Cleve
land's predecessors bare generally regarded
life as too short to spent in examining this
Class of legislation with special care.
They have contented themselves with the
assurance that Congress had oppertumtles
for investigating the cliiims in the most
through manner, and that if ihe bills had
got through both Houses there must hare
been some merit ia them.
A few days since a rumor about the Cap
Jtal, to Ihe effect that any further ruids upon
the Trersury would be combutted by the
President's tele, created a considerable sen
Bation. President Cleveland is the first
President, it is said, who Iibh undertaken to
rcrutiniie private bills. But he became
alarmed at the reckless way Congress was
rushing pension business. A fortnight ago
the Senate alone, in one day, passed 100 such
bflls, after merely reading their titles. This
Lurried and c.aieless way of taking money
out of the National Treasury struck the
President as eminently improper, and he
began Bending to the Pension Office for the
records in order to satisfy his mind concern
ing each of the cases which have thus far
come before him. It is, perhaps, no more
than tho President's duty, but it is a duty
which has rarely been performed; and the
question is where Mr. Cleveland is going to
find the time for the pursuit it his excellent
policy. -
No speech probably lias been made during
the present session of Congress which has
created so much of a sensation as the one
delivered by Mr. Hewitt on Thursday, when
he protested against any further raids upon
the Treasury under the name of bounties or
other benefits of that kind to soldiers of the
late war. Most of these propositions arc
ill considered, and although fur seventy-five
years to come the south will be helping to
py pensions to the soldiers and to the
widows of the soldiers of tho north a
southern member cannot raise a question as
to the propriety of any of these grabs, with
out rendering himself livble to charges of
disloyalty, flippantly and cheaply brought.
The reference made by the gentleman
from New York to the peculiar position of
touthern members, who are thus embar
rassed when tbey would like to oppose these
ruinous schemes according to their convic
tions, was especially relevant and timely.
He declared that the limit of endurance on
the part of the tax payer had been reached
and that the discontent, on account of exces
sive taxation, was breaking out in riots,
dynamite and death. "Those who wanted to
dive their hands down Into the Treasury,'
aid he, ' take advantage of the delicate po
sition in which the southern men are placed,
Wing subject to the charge of disloyalty if
they resist the steal." Hut no ono could
make this charge against him and he would
make the fight.
The great river and harbor grab which
went through the Ilouso after a discussion
extending over several weeks, takes from
I'iver Commissions their power and gives it
to the Secretary of War. Iuring the debate
an opponent of the measure severely criti
uised it. No grandeur of place, he said,
nor insignificance of spot was ignored. The
bill reached everywhere. It was not re
stricted by any unpronounceable name, by
any obscurity of situation, or by any dilli.
culty of access. There was nothing that
seemed to be too incredible to be contained
in this bill. The disfranchised citizen of
the Capitol join issue with this assertion,
however, and arc indignant becuusu an np.
propriation for tho Potomac Flats was omit
ted. Because of this neglect of their own
fair river they hold the bill Is too impudent
to go unrebuked. They contend that its oh.
ject was not to deepen the channel of noble
streams, or to bcuelH llio property of Ihe
whole American people. Its real purpose
was to insure the return of a lot of Con
gressmen lo their seats in tho House al the
coming elections. All that the people of the
District of Columbia are allowed to do, you
know, is to pay their share of taxes for the
improvement of other people's rivers and
harbors, bluffs and flats, creeks and coves.
They have no representation in Congress, no
votes. They belong to the people of the
I'nited States, absolutely, and are governed
ay them. Tbi.t is why they complain of be
ing ignored when Congress is distributing
fifteen millions of dollars.

The important artiole on the Britlnb Navy
by Sir Edward Heed, which attracted much
attention in the February Uirpcr't, and the
description of the Krupp establishment in
March, will be followed in the June number
by a timely paper on the U.S. Navy, by Bear
admiral Edward Simpson, of the -avy ie
partment at Washington, wiih a large num
ber of excellent illustrations, meiiwory
of our navy is briefly sketched, an I the rec
ord is one that Uncle Sam need not be
ashamed of. But as one reads of its present
deplorable condition, every patriot must re
gret the indifference and stagnation which
left tin far behind the age. Previous to
last year our navy consisted only of thirty
two wooden vessels, two iron sloops of war,
m.n.1 m. tw nhi nrimitire monitors. In 188.1
'- - - -
the construction of three steam-cruiscrs and
a dispatch boat, with steel plates, was au
thoriied. These vessels are the Chicago,
IJotton and Atlanta which are nearly fin
ished, and the Dolphin, now doing service
With the construction of these vessels the
manufacture of steel plates for ships began
in this country. This feeble array consti
tutes the present naval force of the United
Slates. We have not one armor cla l man-of-
war (the old single turreted monitors not be
ing considered as having any efficiency,) and
the ordnance and equipments are ridiculously
behind the ngu. It would be impossible fur
us to cope even with some of the smaller
powers in our own hemisphere, and the naval
armaments of Europe make our deficiency a
humiliation. Public opinion is stirring con
gress to action, anu toe article mew ion
some important iu provements which are in
operation. It is to be hoped that this able
p iper will hasten the adjustment of our navy
to the Age of Steel.

Veto Meaange,
The following message from the I'real
dent to congress, vetoing a prlvuto pension
bill, Is deserving of a very careful rending
by the people :
To Tub Hot sr ok Kkpukhkntatiykn:
I return without my upprovnl house bill
No. 147, entitled an net iiicreHsing the pen
sion of Andrew J. Hill. The bill doubles
the pension which the person unmet! there
in 1ms been receiving for a number of
years, it appears irom the report tl the
committee to which the bill was referred
that the claim made by him for increased
pension lias been lately rejected by the
(tension bureau on the ground that the
claimant is now receiving u pension com.
uieiistirate with the degree of disability'
found to exist. The policy of frequently
reversing by speiitil enactment the deci
sions of the bureau Invested by law with
the examination of pension claims, fully
equipteu tor sucu examination, ami which
ought not to be susjtected of any lack of
liberality to our veteran soldiers, Is exceed
ingly questionable, h may well be doubted
If a committee of congress has a better
ojqtortunlty than bucU agency to judge of
the merits of bis claim. If, however,
there Is nny luck of (tower In the pension
bureau for a full investigation It should be
supplied. If the svstem adopted is Inade
quate to do full Justice to claimants, It
should be corrected, and If there Is n want
of sympathy and consideration for the de
fenders of our government, the bureau
should be re orgauled. The dlsjosltlon to
tncede mit generous treatment to the dU
able!, aged and needy among our veterans
should not be restrained, and It must be ad
mitted that In some cases justice and equity
t un not lie attained without the charitable
tendencies of the government ia favor of
worthy objects of its care. The conditions
sometimes justify resort to stte lal legisla
tion, but 1 am convinced that the luterjxv
sltion by steclal enactment in the granting
of (tensions should be rare and exceptional
"There has latelv been presented to me
on the same day for approval nearly two
hundred and forty special bills, granting
ind Increasing (tension? and reMorintr to
the pension list the name ur parties which
for cause have been dropped. To aid ex
ecutlve duty they were referred to tbe jien
ion bureau for examination and re (tort
After a delay absolutely necesaary they
nave been retu.ned to me within a few
ueurs of tbe Urn It const nationally provided
for tin. hum utivt! iictlnn. Kkditv-olie of
these bills cover cases In which favorable
notion by the pension bureau was denied
, reason of the Insutllciency of the testi
mony liled to prove the facts alleged. These
bills I have approved on the assumption
that the claims were meritorious and that,
on the passage of t.ie bills, the government
has waived full pnstf of tbe facts.
"I estimate tbe expenditure Involved In
these bills at more than $.'$3,000 annually.
Though my conception of public duty
leads me to tbe conclusion upon the slight
examination which I have been able to
give to such of tin-so bills as are not em
braced In the first class above mentioned,
that many of them should be disapproved,
I am utterly unable tb tu built within the
time allowed me for thst purpose any ob
jections M the same. They will therefore
become operative without my approval. A
sufficient reason for the return of the par
ticular bill now under consideration Is
found In the fact that It provides that the
name of Andrew J. 1 1 111 be placed on the
pension roll, while the records of the pen
sion bureau, as well as the medical certifi
cate made part of the report, discdoses the
fact that the name of the beneficiary is Al
fred J. Hill."

There is one el ment usually wanting to

a man l- a u In ess being until be has bad
Lronkfast. You can not at all rely on the
r. soiin-i'R of a lodging housd at this point
i ho t utn it that tho buiiiuag of keeping
l.a he.ors alivo in this city is in a period of
transition. The old loahlonod boarding

an I notwithstanding the abuse heaped upon
this clas of persons they at umally very
(locelit peoplo, and thoy succeed in giving
you ba. on and eggs, or sole, with good tea.
There is a boll, and it is answered by a
young woman, who is always civil, and 1
totnetiinns extractive. She is now and then
extremely pietty; tat, no matter bow
pretty she is, you may send her out for a
j(Ot of boor. After the tu!l dozing you un
dergo iu an American establishment of the
kind, the civil aud good nature of theee per
sons are mt gratoful. The prettiest of
them I ever saw would answer my bell half
a do en time in a morning without any
back looks. I once rang lor a fork which
hhoba I forgotten; she iuiekly returned with
it and laid it down, with the remark: "My
Vad'll never learn to save my 'eels."
Hut this is not at all the condition of
thing-! iu New York. The lodging-house
pruprioto. in most cas refuses to give you
breakfast at all If it is given you it is
usually intolerable, the bread, butter, eggs,
milk, and coffee, being all bad. Uut in the
acquisition of this breakfast, such a it is,
tho loiluor w ill encounter dilticulties. The
theoretical intentions of tho landlord or
landlady are thwarted by the obstructions
thrown in the way by the servants; the tac
tics of Mr. l'arnell is imitated by his coun
trywomen to good purpose. It is difficult
to fin I out whose business it is to look after
you; you ore re erre J by ono domestic to
another. The Germans are just as bad so
very unlike the kind, serviceable people of
the fatherland. But, however, well dis
posed the domes! io may be, it is often ex
tremely difficult to communicate with
them. The room ha no boll or if there is
one it doe not not work. Uut if there is a
bed, and it is in (?d order, it may require
wini hardihood to ring it If it becomes
necessary to establish soma kind of com
munication with the domestics your position
is, inJeod, a helpl ss one; they apjiear to be
as jealously tecluded as the occupants of at

And yet it is quite necessary to a com

should not be compelled to go out of thj

well to go out now and thou. In wurui

to break. as t at a olub or a restaurant. But

most of the time. The peculiar, yet common,

which gives new life and strength to all
