[Entered at the Postofiice at Alexandria, Virginia, as
Mr. Cleveland and the Democracy.
I have f.ot hold oi the details of a conver?
sation which occurred between President
Cleveland and a prominent Western demo?
crat, about a month or six weeks ago. The
talk was had at u meeting which was
brought about by appointment. Mr. Cleve?
land had sent for the democratic leader to
whom I allude and whoso name lam not
at liberty to use, and told him he wanted to
advise with him freely and frankly about
the political situation.
"I wish," said the. President, "that you
would tell me plainly, and, if necessary, j
pointedly, what you think about the condi?
tion of things."'
"Well," replied the gentleman, "since
you have asked mo I will speak to you
trutbiully and unreservedly. To begin
with, I think the democratic party is very
greatly demoralized, and unless the last
two years of your ndmiuistrution are a great
improvement on the first two, I do not ex?
pect ther? will be another democratic Pres?
ident in the White Houee during my time.
I am getting to be an old man, and your
election to the Presidency was, at the time,
very gratifying to me. But unfortunately
for both you and the party, you have mau
aged in some way, which I do not believe
was intentional, to effectually destroy the
organization of the party which put you at
the head of this government. Still 1 am
frank to say.tbnt it is not too late for you to
recover lost ground and make yourself your
ow n successor."
"What do you think"has been the princi
pal trouble?"inquired the President, who
did not seem to be at all disconcerted by the
frankness of the gentleman's statement, nor
the uninviting picture presented.
"There have heeti two threat mistakes in
your policy thus far, Mr. President." said
the old democrat, sorrowfully. "Your posi?
tion in the civil service business is in direct
antagonism with the best thougfit in your
party, and is approved by nobo&y%.<but the
mugwumps. Then your hostility to silver
is condemned by the democrats all over the
South and the West. Your position on the
tariff is good enough, but it lacks agressivo
ness. Your failure to direct and control
legislation in Congress, which you would be
able to do if you w ere in hearty accord with
the democratic leaders, has caused you to be
blamed for a great part of the disappoint?
ment felt at the recent adjournment of
Congress. That Congress was altogether
the most disappointing and unsatisfactory
body which htts assembled in our legislative
history. You have apparently kept Con
gress at a distance. You have seemingly
refused to believe that there is any wisdom
atnon?, tbe statesmen of your own party.
You bave acted as if you were suspicious of
your party friends, and you now lack the
sympathy which you ought to have, and
which you would have if your course had
The President was, to all appearance,
deeply impressed with the plain truths ut?
tered by his adviser. He sat for some mo?
ments with bowed head, and seemed to he
communing with himself. Presently he
looked up und inquired :
"Since you have been so ready to name
my shortcomings, and to point out the evils
resulting, will you now tell me what I ought
to do to atone for my own mistakes and to
rehabilitate and restore the democratic
"1 think,"' said the gentleman, "you
should at once adopt a policy that is in har?
mony with the sentiment of your party's
majority, au'i, having once adopted it, that
you should live rigidly up to it. I think
you should take your eyes oil'of New Eng?
land, ami iook westward and southward for
"How would you begin?'' queried the
President, seeing that the gentleman hesi?
"As a beginning I would put John G. Car?
lisle at the head of the Treasury Depart
i ment." ?
"But he won't go there," said the Presi?
dent, quickly, and manifesting some impa?
"Of course, Mr. Carlisle would hot accept
I the Secretaryship of the Treasury," replied j
j the gentleman, with a soothing wave of the I
j hand. "Why should Mr. Carlisle, or any j
j other man, desire to be a clerk in your Cab- j
j inet, a figurehead in your administration?
I Mr. Carlisle now occupies a position of more
! prominence aud power in the politics ofthis
country than any office you can give him
would bestow. I think I know exactly how
he feels about the Treasury portfolio. You
may oiler it to him a hundred times, aud a
hundred times it wil! be refused. Places in
your Cabinet are not desired by men like
Mr. Carlisle. He has a mind of his own
ami a policy of his own. He could not af?
ford to become the head of the Treasury
unless he could infuse his own individuality
into tho administration of the office.
"But suppose, Mr. President, you should
send for Mr. Carlisle and say to him : 'I
want to inaugurate a policy which will re?
store to me the confidence of my party, and
make that party intact and invincible for j
the campaign of 1SSS. I recognize my mis
lakes, and 1 want you to come and help me
map out a policy which will insure my suc?
cessor to be a democrat. I want the benefit
ot your intelligence iu the administration
of the finances.' If you talked to Mr. Car?
lisle like that do you suppose he would hes?
itate for one moment to become your Secre?
tary of the Treasury ? He could no: hesi?
tate : he would not refuse. That would be
a good start, and it would at once attract at?
tention and excite enthusiasm. Mr. Carlisle
is a man who possesses in a marked degree
the confidence ci all classes ia thir* country,
yet he is a doctrinaire Vletnocrat. With bim
as chief of the Treasury, ami confidential
member of your political household, the
rest of the programme would he easy to
make up. All you need to do is to heed
democratic counsel, and turn a deaf ear to
the supercilious warnings of the mug?
There was a silence after the gentle?
man finished hi- remarks. The President
appeared to be meditating profoundly Fi
iially he said :
"There is, no doubt, a great deal in what
you suv. I anal! think about it."
Here the conversation came to an end.?
