Grorsr Cleveland, who died on Wednesday, Jane 21, 1008, was tbe twenty-second and the twenty-fourth Presi dent of tbe United States, and for about oevon years preceding bis death was tbe only living ex-President. He was bora March 18, 1S37, at Cald well, Essex county, New Jersey. lie was of English extraction on tbe paternal side. Moeee Cleveland, tbe first of the family In this country, emigrated from Ipswich, England, to Woburn, Mass., lu 1633. Ills grandson, Aarou Cleveland, waa a Presbyterian minister. Richard F. Cleveland, grandson of the latter, entered tbe Presbyterian ministry In 1829, and In the same year married Miss Anne Neal, of Baltimore, whose f atherirtU-a TOT!v&-of Irelaod.

When be was four years old, bis parent? removed to Fayettevllle, H. Y., near Syracuse. Daring bis yoatb Mr. Cleveland was engaged temporarily In various occapa- tloaffe and in 1855, when eighteen years old, he began tbe study of law In Buffa lo. Four Tears later be was admitted to the bar. Jan. 1, 1803, he was appoint ed 'Assistant District Attorney of Erie puntv. wruienoiaing this posittoq in 1835, be was tbe Democratic candidate for DItrlct Attorney, bat was defeated.

In JtB&S be was nominat ed for Oovernor on (be Democratic tick et. Tbe Republicans bad nominated Charles "J, Folger, President Arthur's Secretary of tbe Treasury ; bat tbe an scrupulous methods employed by "tbe machine" to secure his nomination had created much dissatisfaction among Re publicans, and tbe Democratic machine managers believed that Mr. Cleveland, aa a "Keronn" candidate, would defeat blm. Tbe result proved the correctness of this view. A large number of Re publicans declined to voU, while a con siderable number voted for Cleveland ; and tha-latter received a plurality of ivz,. ai wane iroiger' vote was more than 213,800 below tbe vote for Garfield In 1830, tbe vote for Cleveland waa bat 607 mora than that for Han cock In 1880. At tbe same time, David B. Hill, tbe Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, received a plural ity of 1X5,781. In 18&4, Mr. Cleveland, though bitterly opposed by Tammany, received tbe Dem ocratic nomination for President. The revision of tbe tariff. In 1883, naturally Duvis this subject prominent. Tbe Re publican platform declared emphatically for protection to home Industries, and daring tbs campaign James U. Blaine, tbe Republican candidate, made it the leading sane.

Mr. Cleveland, In bis letter of acceptance. Indulged in some well turned platitudes on "tbe dlguity of labor," Its importance as "au element of national prosperity," and the right of workingmeu to "their full share of tbe care and attention of those who make and execute tbe laws." But be said nothing about tbe tariff, and bis refei ences to it throughout tbe oampalgu were very guarded ; whereby be avoided the pit into which (Jen.. Hancock fell lu discussing the tariff In the campaign of 1830. Ko small proportion of the leading Democrats really accepted the nomina tion of Cleveland with au ill grace. As their acquaintance with blm became closer, tbey were astonished at wbat they characterized as bis "phenomenal ig norance of public men, publlo affairs. lis questions ;" some of them d- I him as "a paroohlal statesmau ;" it was well understood that he bad ben uomlusted mainly from a belief In lis availability, arising from bla assumed strength in New York, shown by bis large. plurality two years previously. At tbe Presidential eleetlou, iiowever, this pltR rallty dwindled to 1,1 tu ; and the oharge was made, fur whloh subsequent investi gation showed apparent grounds, that even this was due to fraudulently oouut lug and roturnlog for Clevelaud the vote cast In various districts lu New Vork aud vicinity for (Jen.

Hot whatever tbe tnotlve for tbe appointment, tbe result vindicated tbe President's jodement ; for In tbe practical management of treasury at fair Mr. Manning prored one of tbe inoet oompetent and encoeMfal men who bad ever beld tbe petition. Augustus II. Uarland, of Arkansas, waa appointed Attorney General. .He bad been a niembtir of tbe State Conven tion that adopted tbe ordinance of soees Ion, In 1801, and during tbe war bad erred In tbe Confederate Congress. Another cabinet appointment was that of Lucius y. C. Lamar, of Mlsstsslp pf. aa BccreUry of tbe luterior. Mr. La mar bad served in the Confederate army, and after being disabled by a wound waa employed in tbe Confederate diplomatic aerTloe. To place an ex-Confederate In tbe cabinet waa an act that naturally arooMd criticism, and this waa accent nated by tbe circumstance that tbe Pension Bureau waa Included In the Iu- miur ucMiiuiDUkr A u miLjyu Houa. federate todecide on tue clalmaof Union ItoldiersTy pensions seemed to give pe culiar emunasia' to tbe boaat that "tbe Boutb la ng01n the saddle ;'' and bad thla been predloted at the time of Lee's surrender, It would have been regarded aa tbe prophecy of a lunatic. The 'administration of the Pension Hureau soon exhibited greater strictness lu tbe conditions required to establish a pensionable disability, and tbe belief grew throughout the North that tuls was due to a feeling of hostility toward Union soldiers. Due Instance, especial ly, provoked much hostile comment. Daring tbe war, Wm. Hedgspeth, of tbe 42J Indlaua Volunteers, was taken prisoner. After a confinement of live mouths In tbe prisou pen at Audersou vllle, be enlisted In ttis Coufederatx army, with tbe intention, whloh be made kuowu to some of bis fellow prisoner, of escaping iutotbe Union lines as soon aa possible. He succeeded iu this, re joined bis regiment, served out bla term of enlistment, and was honorably dis charged. About the time of Cleveland's election, be applied for n pension for a disability contracted iu tbe Uulou ser vioe, and made full proof of the requisite facts. But under the new administra tion of tbe pension offloe be was con fronted with a clause of tbe law forbid ding a pension to any persou"wbo in any manner voluntarily engaged in, aid ed, or abetted, the late rebellion against tbe authority of the United States." Tbe olaiiuHnt contended, however, that bis enlistment In the Confederate army was only a method of escaping from ImprU oninent and rejoining bla command, and therefore could not be regarded as vol untary, within the meaning, spirit and reasonable interpretation of the law. The question made a deadlook among officials of tbe Pension Bureau, in which opinions on both sides were given. Be lug Anally referred to Secretary Lamar, be beld to the strict letter of tbe law and decided against the claim. Tbe largely preponderant opinion among tbe people, respecting tbie deolalou, was that tbs pension waa refused by tbe ex Confederate Secretary, not because tbe elalnlKEt fnvtT entered the Confederate servioe, but as h punlsbmentCr having asserted from it. Tbe lnflaenoi bn the popular -jiud of Ion law waa Intensified by President Cleveland's amazing want at tact, to say tbe least. In dealing wltb matters invol ving public sentiment m relation to tbe war by whloh the Union bad been pre served. As one InsUnoe of tbls, instead of taking part la the observance of Memorial Day, be selected that day for a Ashing excursion. As another, be Issued an order, through tbe Secretary of War, directing tbe return to tbe Southern States of the Confederate bat tie -flags captured daring the war, and kept In tbe Ordnance Museum. Tbe re sentment aroused by tbls order, how eve., was auob that he speedily rescind ed it. Shortly after this, he recalled his acceptance, previously given, of an in vitation to attend tbe National Euoamp ment of tbe G. A. R. at St. Louis, for tbe reason, as explained In a letter to tbe Mayor of St. Louis, that tbe veter ans bad Indulged lu too niaoti criticism of some of bis official acts. In tbe mat ter of tbe Confederate flags, tbe prompt and patriotic response of tbe South to the call for service, in the war with Spain and In tbe Philippines, brought about such a change in publlo seutlmeiit that tbelr recent return, by order of President Roosevelt, met with general approval. Iu addition to Incidents of this char acter, tbe animus of tbe President. Id rt latiou to tbe Union veterans, was shown iu other acts. Ue vetoed 2D7 private pension bills; and as these had been an proved by a Democratic llouse. con trolled by tbe South, he was charged with being more Confederate Hum Hi- ex Confederates who were wiug to pen sion me men whom they'had fought among tue Dills, vetoed was oue l-IvIul- a pension of (50 a mouth to the widow of Gen.

Porter, passed by Congress, was vetoed by President Ar thur, ou tbe ground that under a recent decislou of tbe U. 8. Supreme Court Cougress had no power to aoc Iu the premises. On the utherhand, Mr. Cleve land approved a bill giving a peulou of 50 a mouth to the widow of (leu. Dur- blu Ward, a noted Democratic politician of Ohio, and another glvlug a peualou of 3,000 a year to tbe widow of Geu. Han cock, who bad been tbe Deiuooratlo can didate for Presldeut lu 1380, though the reasons giveu for disapproving the neu slou to Mrs. Hunter applied with equal loroe io ail turee oases. Very uaturally, the impression was made that the dis crimination against Mrs. Hunter was de signed as a puulshmeut for her husbaud' s action on the Porter court martial, Another veto of a peuslou bill aroused much discussion, and was variously re garded. This was tbe "dependent pen sion bill," tbe Urst to give pensions for disabilities not contracted In the servioe. It provided for I2 a mouth to every man who bad served three months or more, aud was disabled from labor by oausesuut the result of vloe or bad habits. It waa da-approved by the President, ou the grMud, ohlelly1 that the vagueness ol its provlslous-reapeotiug the nature, eiteut auiTTauses of peuslouahle dls- llty opened a wide door to fraud, aud brlug relief to some uuch larger num ould pri so happened that an apt sfbaj, might be done as tbe was auorueu in lue case Tatlo Pension Commissioner himself.

It was also quite well understood that tbe bill was prepared and carried through Congress by a combination of pension attorneys. elatiu sharks, and others of like profes sion, aud that when it went Into effect tbe Pension Bureau would be flooded with doubtful and spurious claims. While the veto was savagely denounced by the interests that suffered by It, the best ele ments of both parties, with a large pro portion of tbe veterans, gave It a cjrdlal Indorsement. Even Matthew Stanley Quay, who had Just been eleeted U. S. Senator but had not yet taken his seat, aud who, during the war, bad been ooiouel of the 134:h Pa. Vols., expressed Ills hearty approval of it. While the bill bad passed the House by a majority of 104, when the vote was reached on the question of passing it over the veto the public ooudemuation of its provifioue bad so made Itself felt that tbe majority iu Its favor was only fifty, aud the veto was thu sustained Mr. Cleveland, while Governor of New York, was a strong advooate ot "civil service reform," by tbe adoption of tbe "merit system of maklue.appolutiuuts, and aided In tbe enactment of statutes giving effect to tbe plan of competitive examinations. Upon taking tbe Presl deutlal chair, he endeavored to put tbe same principles in operation in federal appointments, and auuounced that, with tbe exoeptiou of heads of departments, forelgu mlnistern, aud other officials chanted directly with tbe executiou of tbe policy of tbe administration, there would be uo removals without cause. He soon found, Iiowever, that while a Presldeut mlgut be better than his party. It was far more difficult for him to be stronger tbau his party. The Democ racy, which bad suffered tbe buuger for office for t went -four years, clamored to be fed ; as oue western Cougresemau bluutly expressed it, they were "squeal ing for swill." No oue could questlou the President's sincerity in demaudlng a satisfactory standard of fitness lu offiolal appointments ; .but the political condi tions were suoh that he was uuablo to resist tbe party pressure for a disregard ot any standard beyond party demands. After a period of backing aud UUluc, the classification of causes reooguized "of fensive partisanship," "obtrusive par tisanship," and "peruioious activity" in politics a satisfactory grounds for tbe removal of Republicans, und tbe appoint ment In tbelr plaoes of Democrats of not less offensive, obtrusive or pernicious partisanship and activity lu politics. There were numerous grotesque exam pies of the application of Mr. Cleveland's revised "Reform" principles. For in stanoe, Dlstrlffl Attorney Stone, of Penn sylvania, a Republican, and Dlstrlot At torney Beaton, of Missouri, a Democrat, eul-l for making political speeches? Tn leupou Mr. Beuton ad- lettir ,4 the Attorney Geueral. forth bis services during the cam 1th a list of his appointments, declared, were so arranged that he oould look In upon bis official business once in eacb week ; and Hens tor Vest made it wrathful demand on the President to resolnd the order of suspen sion. At a result, Mr. Beutou was relu WHttflr; rtTuaVa wl't'u lt sAarpAgflfjTe by ' tue rreeiaent. Then Mr. Stone, encour aged thereby, made application for re instatement, showing that be had made but two speeches, both lu tbe evening, leaving bis offloe after the adjournment of oourt, and returulng before It opened iu the morning. The President, iu re sponse, admitted that Mr. Stouo's courte did not result In any neglect ol official duty. Yet there was a marked difference between tbe two oases ; Mr. Beutou's speeches were mije In the cause of De mocracy, while those of Mr. Htoue were in opposition to it, aud, us Mr. Clevelaud pointed out, were calculated to "offeud aud irritate the friends of the adminis tration." Therefore Mr. Stone's bus peuslon was made a fiual dismissal, aud he was succeeded by a Demoorat. An other case showed that the rule lu rela tion to "cause" was retroaotive, and with uo statute of limitations to bar removals under it. Id tbe summer of 1830, J. B. Hill, the Republican Marshal of tbe Eastern Dlstrlot of North Carolina, was removed. Iu reply to a Senate resolu tion of inquiry as to the oause. Attorney General Garland stated that Mr. Hill hod been a delegate to the Repablleau Na tional Convention of 1884, more tbau two years previously, aud five weeks before Mr. Cleveland bad eveu been nominated for the Preeideuoy ; aud for that act of obtrusive and offensive partisanship aud pernicious aotlvity, under a previous ad ministration, bis official held was sum marily whacked off. The oases referred to were typical of the geueral course pursued In tbe matter of appointments during Mr. Cleveland's aduilulstratlou. They show the diffi culties oounected with the work of beglu uiug olvll servioe reform, the obstacles with whloh the Presldeut was confront ed at every step, the prodigious pressure to which he wassubjeoted by his party, and tbe shifts to which he was driven iu order to maintain working relations with the great body of those ou whom he neces sarily depeudeil for support, nud who bitterly opposed auy Infraction of the half jeutury old rule that "To the victors belong the spoils." He struggled earnest ly to establish the principles of civil ervlce leform, but fouud himself con fronted wuh coudltlous that crowded theories lulu the gutter. So far as prac ticable, lie gave ellect to those principles by eularglug the classified lists of ap polutiueuts lobe filled by eouipetltlvs ex aiuluatloii. When his first term begau, these numbered about 13,000, nud at the cl jse of his second term the number bad riseu to about 80,000. Through I lie greater part of Mr. Cleve land's llrnt lerm, little interest win mini fesied in tbe tariff.

President! tho Mill of prote ud Iran as of this Committee was never taken up for action. During tbe ponding Presidential nimpaign, the tariff was tbe chief Issue. Tbe Democratic National Convention re nominated President Cleveland by acclama tion, and Indorsed the Mills Dill ; tbe Repub lican Conviction nominated Benjamin Har rison, of Indiana, and declare! strongly for protection. Tbe result at the polls was the election of Mr. Harrison. In 1P92 Mr. Cleveland was again nominat ed sod elected, aud tbe campaign resulted also lu making both Houses of Congress Democratic. Soon after bis Inauguration..! tbe l'f esiJent r-allei au extra session of Congress for the purpose of repealing the purchiee clause of the silver act ot 189U. The Democratic Convention bal denounc ed tbls provision acd demanded Its Iramedl ate reM.aI. and Mr. Cleveland made tbe mistake of supposing thtl n Democratic Convention ever really meant anything tbat It said except wni-n iW'laring for free trade. Great, therefore, was bla astonish ment, to Had tbat In neither House could a Democratio majority be st-cured for tbe re peal! and tbls was H Dally accomplished by Republican votes. Tbe ilnuw tnen set to work on the tariff, and on February 1, 1001, pused the Wilson bill. This reduced duties even below the revenue point, and to make up the defk-ii'Dcv aided au tuco.no tax. While the Senate was Democratic, the course of many of Its members was deter mined by local interests tbat would be affected br tbe proposed tariff, and tbe biH wat returned to tbe House witb six hun dred and thirty-four amendments, which gave protection to some extent In sbreds r,nd patches. A conference commit1 at Urst failed to agree. In reportlugytbe dis agreement to tbe House, Mr. Wilson pro ducedaletter addressed to him by tbe Presi dent, witb leave to make it piiblic. aud It was read by tbe clerk. Iu ttft, Mr. Cleve land expressed bis disappointment at tbe action of theBenate, as an abandonment of Democratic pledges that meant "party per fidy aud party dl-holior." Ilesidea con demulng varioui features, be referred to the fugs'- schedule $ language Indicating that he regarded ias due lu 'ihe methods and manipulations of trusts and combina tions " As might have be-u foreseen, this was regarded ly the Senate as au attack on lis integrity, anl aroused a resentment that made compromise impossible. Final ly tbe Ucmse surrendered unconditionally and pasaed tbe bill as nmended by tbe Sen ate. Therreeident would neither sign or ve to it, Bnd in the absence of a veto it became a le.w ten days later Hut the President's allusions to trusts and combinations were sft well founded tbat It was generally char acterized as tbo "riugar Trust Tariff." In the year following, a serious question arose respecting tbe maintenance of ihe Monroe doctrine in Boutb America. For many years tbe boundary betweeu Vtrnezu ela aud British Uulaua hud beeu iu dispute. Great Britain claimed territory wills h Vene zuela contended belonged to heir, and fused to arbitrate. In July, 1?9V. our State Deoartment announced mus-u . 1 tbe British Premier, tbat tbe o Great Britain of the territory- would be regarded as a violation oi Monroe doctrine, and proposing a submis sion of the boundary question to arbitra tion. Lord Salisbury, inNovember, replied that be regarded the Monroe doctnnu as in applicable to the easeyand declined to arbi trate. On Dei ember 7th tbe President sent a special message .to Congress, describing tbe situation, and recommending the ap pointment of a ommisslon to Investigate tbe subject: amy declaring that, In bis opin ion, we should resist tbe appropriation by Great Uritalnof -any territory which, after investigation we have determined ot right to belong id Venezuela." This message was viewed luAoth countries as a conditional declaratiofu of war, oud created great ex cltemun. The proposed commission was appoiurted. but before it reported. Great Bntjn and Venezuela agreed to arbitrate. -Ifter the controversy over the Sugar Trufst Tariff, President Cleveland was left rictiually without a party. In Congress, ue southern and western Democrats, par- eularly, Igoored him, and made it clearly understood that he was no longer to be thought of as a leader. At the National Con vention of 1S9C, he was not even named among tht lltteeu candidates voted for, and on the Uftb ballot Wm. J. llryau was nomi nated ou a flee rilver platform. In tue cauipaigu tbat followed, Mr. Clevelaud sup ported Buckuer and Palmer, the unmluees of the gold standard Democracy. At the close of his term he took up his residence in 1'ilncetou, where be lesiled until his death. While, in tbeir estimate of Mr. Cleveland's abilities ai.d intellectual attainments, tbe people were naturally biased by tbelr agree ment or disagreement witb his views, his personal integrity wus never doubted, and it was admitted oi, all sides that bis con victions on public questions were sincerely ii- Id aud conscientiously maintained, wltb iiltleor no regard to their bearing on bis political fortunes.
