It Is impossible to avoid tho conviction
that seme of the leaders of our parly or
rather svtno who were formerly regarded
as kadeia, but are such no longer bavo
been nil along under th impression 'hit
the President's Utter of cccptance was
simply a piece of artful wr Ing, conceived
iniul'enrd Indicted In th spirit of tbo
iltumgogue, having no other meaning and
inlrnt but to dicclvc tho people Into his
support In tbo cauvoss, and to gain the
election by pretenses which wero fore
dtM mid to repudiation when they hid ac
cruii'lihcd their purpose. No other cdo
sum lion cau be placed upon their acts
fir the reason tlmt, If they had believed
he rr.iaU what he wrote, they would have
been prepared to have agisted In carrying
ImpromfMS Into execution, giving them
tic pifletlcil effect they were willing thoy
should have in the prospccltvo when com
needing tUt to tho confidence of tho
ptop1 Iiom the stump. And wo may
Lou .or elude, from their conduct, thai
h d In In truth supposed the policy in
dfca'ed In that letter would bo Insisted
upe i in It c administration of tho Govern
me tit, they would have labored as assidu
ously to t ecu re bis defeat as they did to
ensure It's success.
We sl'ill i.ot, therefore, be guilty of In
justice toward such when we (ay that
U.clr motives arc fairly questionable, and
that, fu future, tho country will be likely
ti. iifofc lut slight trust In their profes
s ors of faith, whatever be their courte on
t uLHc questions. And this consequenco
to O.emttlvtB will bo tho more certain
Mien their prcccduro Is contrasted by tho
rtople with the straight orward eoursoof
the President. Convinced, now, by
artuil experience that there is such a
thing ns honesty In public mm, and that
the pltdgts of candidates are not neces
sarily matter-of-course falsehood, there
ill be tome difllculty hereafter In bring
ing the people to support thoeo whose per
s md character Is not a sulilclcnt guaranty of
performance. And tho popular disposition
sure to follow, to sift tho merits of men
who put themselves forward for high
rifllec, will be fatal to the varied ambitious
of many who now appear on the public
siagc. So the elevation of Mr. Uayei to
the Presidency will not only accomplish
tie pacification of tho couutry In accord
(tnre with the stipulated purpose, but It
will educate the peoplo in a school of poli
tics not before open to them since the
cirly diys of the Republic, and whose
euiriculum end discipline will be sufll
cent, in one term, to render them compc
ttntto i erpetuate its kind. Ilutthecoa

tear reciprocal relations and are capable of

crpetlc people, a perfect examplo of
domestic prosporlty and commercial in
dependence. And If the U-6$on shall result
In a rational effort to disclose and utilize
the bidden stores and neglected means ol
wealth which our vast territory contains,
tt mulaling the sections to generous rivalry

cetfulnetsof all other interests but those of
lalor snd love, of pcaco and happiness, wo
thall soon be the most numerous, tie most

'Ivil Service Reform Is conceded to be a
good snd desirable end, but difficult to
curry out. That the change determined
upon by the President is right all will ad
mit. It is just to tho employee, beat tor
ILe service and of great benefit to tho I) s
tiict of Columbia and Incidentally to the
whole country. It benefits the employee
by securing him In his position as long as
bo Is worthy of it ; by securing his promo
tion as occasion occurs, If he deserves tt ;
by developing his energy and faithfulness,
sir re all depends not on injlusnee, but
i ', aud by relieving himself and
n fn in anxiety as to keeping his posl-
. i d harassing thoughts of the consa
i ta of losing it. It benefits the ser-
ic by relieving it of unworthy employees,
vLo eru now kept In place by political in
flueure , by Improving those that remain ;
b doing away with unnecessary changes
In Its force, which waste time In learn
ing and deprive It of the services of
those well versed, and by allowing Its
employees to work with undisturbed
minds and devote themselves to
tho interest of the Government Instead of
seeking influence to retain their positions
aud providlog themselves with other em
ployment In case of being ousted. It
benefits the District o'f Columbia by mak
ing It not the transient stopping place of
Government clerks, where they may find a
boarding-house (that grand Washington
Institution) until they lose their positions
at tbe next reduction of force, but their
constant abode, whore they expect to re
main, thus enhancing real estate, Incrcas
In; house building and mercantile busi
ness and Improving the state of Boelety.
And incidentally this reform touches that
most vital part of the He public the ballot
In carrying out such a radical change In
this particular It Is to be expected that tho
President will have the opposition of most
of those men who formerly held the ap
pointing power In their own bands, but if
be stands to his determination, agaiast all
opposition, and carrlos out this Improve
ment, he will gain the highest respect and
hearty support of the people, for daring to
undertake and successfully culminating a
change of acknowledged valuo, which
other Presidents bare recoznlzed and un
dertaken, but which none before him has
vtn continued throughout his own ad
Tnat President Hates is fully determined
to carry out this policy during his term of
office admits of no doubt, and that ho will
tueceed can scarce be doubted, If bis former
success in all be has undertaken Is any
guldo to .oncluslon; but let him Imagine
for himself the great good ho would do the
country and tho honor and heartfelt thanks
It would return blm if, during his adminis
tration, he would lift tbo civil service out
of the bands of pedlllclans forever, and
place It on n footing with that of n'ticr en
lightened countrlen, where It will almxt
Invariably bo found ab stable as the gddler
ofournrmy and the salbir itl our navy.

TIicfo letters are from tho business men of

over political disappointment on the part
of the Southern peoplo there is a m inly do
termination to accept with bccomliu graco
the inevitable and Join tn a hearty support

This prompt and manly accepUnco of tho
result will meet with a hearty and sincere
rtsponso from President Hates and his
constitutional advisers and tho entire party
which they represent, with tho exception,
terhaps, of a few ambitious politicians.
Thus far tho Indications aro trut the law

The old adge that " as tho days lengthen
tho cold lengthens," seems to be truo at
thlasessoo. Nature says the scientist ab

from the north bearing with them tho icy
chill of the arctic regions. Tho obliqu.ty
with which the sua send his heat his also
much to do with tt, and Until tbo equilib

this procefslonal movement of heat and air
is restored barometric pressure is Irregular
and uneven. Tho conflict between tho
North and South, meteorologically speak
ing, will continue at least until the Ides of
March arc passed, abuut which t'mo tho
yernal equinox sets in, and Old Sol, after a
determined struggle, once more gains the
mastery. Ui4ll that time e must content
ourselves with the varyiug weather which
cno day chills us and tho next day by Its
bracing purity sends tho blood coursing
through our veins.

of the lato Commodore who is contesting
Ida father's testament, which only devised
to him the yearly interest upon $200,000.
while his other brother got over sixty
millions, has filed his objections to the will.
As msy bo observed In our telegraphic dis
patches the contestant alleges that the tes
tator was of unsound mind at tho time of
the execution of the will, and also that the
paper writings were procured by fraud and
undue influence of his moro fortunate
brother. It Is, of course, probable that in
the litigation over tho Commodore's prop
erly a great deal of the dirty linen of the
Yakdmliii.t family will receive a good
atrloa, and as the contestant will be satis
fied with a couple of millions, It would be,
after all, the wiser, as well as the
cheaper, course to settlo with him. He Is

look strange that the Commodoro should
have discriminated against him to such a

that the telegraphic dispatches In the possession
of the Ctmtnlttee on 1'rh lieges aud Elections ba
returned to tho company, ai the purpose for
witch they were procured bad passed away
Also, snylnir that a similar request, which was

pro 'em. of tbe Senate, but no roply had been re

Just so : Jlr. Lvarta has never held an elec

has (1 rover.
The potltlclan who beirlns to sen that his
dividend of the spoils Is precarious, at once pre
dicts for the party an Iliad of woes.
Peoplo legluto realise that tie polls aro
closed, the votes counted, and the boxes locked
up for four years. This fs what makes campaign
talk soitid so stale and unseasonable.
Tbcreie such a practical unanlmltvthrouzh
cut the country as to tbe support of President
llnyes, tbat If tils Cabinet wCro submltte 1 to the
teopte lor confirmation tho opposition would be
Congressman Beebe, who sprang Into noto
riety and on top of bis desk at the same time Is
speaklrg for the Democratic ticket la New
llamt shire. He will had room enough among
the gromtii bills to spread bimsolf out thin ana
add to the Itcpubllcan majority.
Democratic journals are propounding this
Cttiumirumt -'Will Hayes stlckT" to which a
rrpatlvo answer Is Invariably given. A short
time ago tbey asked. "Will Hayes resign" anl
then cvolrcd from their consciousness an itQrmi
th reply, Tbey wero disappointed once and are
likely to bo again.
It htli surprisingly to relieve one's anxiety
to know that the Rhode Iilanl -Democrats bait
resolved that their fnlth In Democratic instltu-
tbrs Is uii ti bated IT tbo party In that State
would only make nn effort once and poll a v te as
large as tbo Republican majority, It would stiffen
peoi le'e fmih a triMo more.
Plain peoplo aro trying to discover wherein
theiolley of President Hayes, so far as It has
been f reahadowed, Is a diparturo frooi the party
plattotro or from his own pie tges. and they aro
wmdtring whether thUcablnetot his Isn't fust
suebacitioaa was trornlsod before tho eleetlon.
llrj ubllcan Senators have exuded little Instruc
ts n on these points up to dale.
Tho Dimocrattc journals have been moro
severe in their comments on the resolutions pasiod
by Heir party irlcnds In tbe Ubl Legislature
if an the jte ubllcan tiapers. Here Is uno Irom
1t Tlaeon ((t) Ttlryraph end Mtutujrr:
"Has It rotae to this, that the potsherds of earth
fiaro measure swords with Omnipotence, and call
(n qucsllon theaotsor tbe tlreat 1 am"" After
tin Legislature adjourns tbe Democrat io mora
tere will Lavo leisure to overhaul their cite
Ibo eonteat for the Ohio Seoatorshlp has
Jin r nmed down to elm einrlleld, Attorney Uon
irnlTafl. Manley Matthews, and lion. Siiiuol
Mirllabargtr. A member or the Legislature
u nkts the lollowlog calculation. "Un joint ballot
lliere are 84 Itepubltciins, I'erhajis tw, at least,
tire permantntli absent, and when thovote sh ill
retaken In caucus there will not bo more than
T'J mtmlers present. Necessary to a choice, J
otes. IheClnclnoatitlelegjvtlon have Uofthese
folhi for Matthews. The North and Wont aro
polld tor tlarfleld, about 2S totesj but both will
git a lew more votes from different sections of
theSlate. bhellabaraer will start off with Uve
votes. Tre t;itjclnnatl delegation will change to
Tali tlret. If there It any show or sitoctsi. Tbo
rhanets between Matthews and tHr field are vory
nearly even, though eiarfleld will lead all his
cuaujuW rs on the nrst ballot."
A correspondent sends to the Chicago Tn
ounr a letter he received from ex Senator Key,
of lenncssco, dated November", 1ST. This was
shirtly alter bis appointment as Senator, and
when some of the most influential of the Demo
cratic Journals or the State were calling upon
blm to rtsign because he opposed the greenback
heresies tf tho i any. Mr. Key says In the Ut
ur: 1 bvg you to remember I am no
diplomat, no trimmer, no time server; I believe

Nashville. In which we both agreed that we were
not and would not be partisans, but should re
serve to dursclves the right to do what wo might
think right. That Is et my platform, and al
ways ahull be. If It takes me to tbe altar or the
stake I shall take that pUtTorm with me to It.
II my party and conscience go together I shall

lhey are the truth, and 1 shall stand or fall by

use It against me If I fall In a jot or a Uttte ol

Key is not wanting In the old fashioned virtues,
and tbe selection of suih a man brings out Inn
clearer light Mr. Hayes' purposes in constructing
Tbe Editor's Valentino.

We haio already received our valentine for
this year. It Is not a very pretty one, but what
It lacks In beauty is made up In masterly color
log and skilful handling. The title Is "A News
lajerMan," and represents a. dropsical headed
chap with a Cronln nose, a green ooat aa4 a rei
I air of trousers, going through a piece often
cent musliu with a formidable ptlr of shears. You
may have noticed that alt editors wear green
coals and red pantaloons. A quill Inserted be
hind a comprehensive car exhibits much feeling
end is unlike anything round In medla'val art
Very much unlike It, Tbe color tn the nose Is
laid on with a reckless lavlshneis and a brush,
and doesn't suggest the tlolttesque styloofpilnt
Ing to any appreciable extent. The abbreviated
eiflMalls are remarkable for breadth of ef.
Kct and absence of feeling, and are painted
In a rither low tone The pott ot the
figure Is easy and graceful, as Is nat
ural with editors. The deilcate modeling
of tho bet reminds one more or a pair of gunboita
than the early einrutlan frescoes. They appear
to (over the whole groun or perhaps we should
savtho whole floor. 1 he buttons on the eoat
luck strength and holes to buih tbe needles
through, while the shirt collar is terribly real
and biijplly conceived. The artist has thrown
confident b)o soul in the newspaper man's shirt
collar. The legs of the table are patterned niter
the Oothlcitjlo of architecture, and are rather
wcikj but the paste poton the floor Is full of
tMxkrnvss and fueling and paste The brush,
which reposes gently In tbe jut, betrays a mastor
hand nnd a short hund'e The shear, with which
the editor is supposed to be moulding ubllo
olnlou, are bold, sharp and vigorous, the rivet
brlnii particularly well painted and oiled. His
bead Is so bare tnat it barely Invites criticism.
All the details of tbe pktute am falthtully
wotked out with one exception. There a
marked absence o a newspaper boro gjlng
thrugh tho pile of exchanges in the right a ml
foreground With this defect rmuedled, tho
whole picture would be so real and life Ilka that
