Mead recommended the pas sage of a law establishing a railway and transportation commission, a tax commission, aa anti-pass law and the creation of juvenile courts. It is now a part of the record that these laws have been placed on the statute books. The president of the University of Washington Is going east soon to look over the field and select men to fill the vacant professorships now existing In the university. Would it not be a good idea for the president to have his ey.i thoroughly tested before starting? Some of the specimens which western university presidents Import from the east indicate exceptionally defective eyesight. j THE LAST OF THE EX-PRESIDEXTS. Grover Cleveland did not belong to that group of American statesmen •who possessed original or creative powers, but he was an honest man and a faithful and efficient public servant. His name will not be classed along with those of Hamilton, Jefferson, Marshall and Lincoln —men who laid tbs foundations and gave the distinctive stamp to our political institutions. It was his good fortune, however, to live at a period in our nation's history when the great need of the hour was not creative statesmanship, but loyalty to the eternal principles of truth and justice. Cleveland pos sessed this characteristic to a remarkable degree, and when elevated to the presidency, he measured up to the high trust imposed in him. The civil war brought with it a train of evils, a lowering of the standards pf public morality, the demoralizing effects of which are felt to the present day. The period has been aptly characterized as one of government by Bpecial interests instead of government by the people. Against the J.i trenched and selfish interests, Grover Cleveland threw the great weight of his Influence. He fought them while Mayor of Buffalo, when Governor of New York, and the reputation he made for honesty and (fearlessness in these two positions led to his nomination and election to the presidency. The fight which he made against graft and extravagance in i"l.*iic expen ditures while mayor of Buffalo, caused him to be known as the "Veto Mayor." % The opposition that he aroused while in these administrative positions explains the antagonism that existed between Cleveland and the Tammany organization of Xew York City. An organization" existing primarily for the purpose of exploiting a city had no use for an honest governor, or an hon est president. The fact tha: he was nominated three times for the presi dency in"the face of the intense opposition of the Tammany organization Is the clearest evidence that the people were beginning to become restless under the domination of railroads and other corporate interests in Ameri can politics. Cleveland began the fight which has been so tenaciously car ried on by President Roosevelt. Besides being honest and fearless, Cleveland was conservative and ten acious-—perhaps too conservative to bring to a successful termination thel gigantic task which confronted him. But he made a heroic beginning. The: public act with which his name will be chiefly associated, and which best j indicates his conservative tendency, was hs refusal to accede to the wishes of aa iiitiuenti.il faction of his party to permit the finances of tin I nation j to rest on a silver basis. By issuing bonds to keep up the gold reserve i and persistealy demanding the repeal of the act which provided for the re issue of treasury notes in gold on their redemption, he averted the danger. If any further evidence were required to vindicate his courage, it would only be necessary to mention his ultimatum to Great Britain over the Ven ezuela boundary dispute and his action in dealing with the hicago strike. His death recalls the bitter feuds that existed in American politics in his day, the rivalry between Blame and Conkling, the defection in the re publican ranks of such leaders as George William Curtis, Henry Ward Beecher and Roscoe Conkling, which contributed largely to the defeat of Blame and the election of Cleveland the first time. Cleveland was not a great man, but he was a fearless and able one, and he performed the part Which destiny assigned to him in a conscientious and worthy manner, and has left behind him an example of official Integrity worthy of emula tion. The American people will always cherish a kindly memory for Grover Cleveland.
