lllsinarck's policy in expelling the Poles
from Germany la not only unwise mill un
just, but posltlvoly despotic ami cruel. It
in evidently Inspired ly the tyrannical
and Indexible spirit which prevails, at thu
present time, in the German uovernnient
the same spirit which decrees that nat
uralized American citizens shall not en
joy the privileges of citizenship In the
Gorman empire, and which would drive
out every colony ot natural-bom Hermans
whose members, havim? attained citizen
shin In foreign countries, presume to re
turn and seek domicile in the mother
country, llismarck's iron hand would
Impose upon the German empire an abso
lntlsm as uurelciitliiK as that of Home In
thu days of the Civsars. Ills object is to
subordinate the will of thu governed to thu
will of thu governing. Whatever stands
in the way ot this policy must yield.
While I'nsMan I'oland is territorially
ft part of the German empire, the people
refuse to bow down to the hat of this
modern Gessler. Therefore they are to lie
driven from their homes, exiled from their
native land, at the bidding of the tyrant.
Such Is llismark's determination, but It
remains to be seen whether he can coerce
the Keichstag Into acquiescence with his
policy Great as Is the poweraud uillueiice
of tlds man, it is chieily supported by Ids
indomitable v ill. Kesistance on the part
of the German lleichstag would be fatal
to his imperial schemes. So long as he can
browbeat the assembly of the people, so
long will he be able to carry out his policy
of absolutism. Should Hisnmrck triumph
in the present instance, it would prove the
ascendancy of absolutism in Germany;
but should the proposed expulsion of the
Poles hasten that political crisis which
has been impending for years in the Ger
man empire, and bring about a union of
the two wings of tlio people's party, the
liberal and social democrats, the result
might be the overthrow of the imperial
power in Germany. Some resistance, un
doubtedly, will be made to Uismarck's
proposed action as regards tho Poles ;
whether it will beelfective or not remains
to be seen.
President and Senate.
President Cleveland is quoted as saying
that Mr. Kdmunds and his Republican as
sociates in the Senate are not acting In
good faith for the public good in inquir
ing into his reasons for cortain removals.
Their aim, he says, Is to harass his ad
ministration. How does Mr. Cleveland
know this Has he any omnipotent gift
for reading men's minds, and motives t
On the fate of the transaction, the sena
tors press their requests for informaticn
most distinctly In the interest of the pub
lic. How does Mr. Cleveland's conduct
look, viewed from the standpoint of the
public Interest ? lief ore his inauguration,
in his famous letter to Mr. Curtis he de
clared his position as follows :
There is a class of government positions
which are not within tho letter of the
civil service statute, WUt which are so dis
connected wit ii the policy of an adminis
tration that the removal therefrom of
present incumbents, in my opinion, should
not l)e made, during the terms for which
they were appointed, solely on partisan
grounds and lor the purpose of putting in
their places those who are in political ac
cord with the appointing power.
Since his inauguration a number of re
movals, apparentlXprecisely of tho class
described being upohJthe face of them in
stituted simply to inaB places for men in
political accord with thewpointing power,
have been made. The United States Sen
ate, associated with the president in the
responsibility for such changes, simply
asks the president to furnish, for its in
formation before It acts on them, the rea
sous for the changes. If he has good rea
sons, reasons of public instead of partisan,
import, why should he not furnish them ?
Instead, he retreats behind his preroga
tive, and declines to give reason, cause, or
information 1 Perhaps he will succeed in
maintaining this policy of withholding
from the constitutional advisers, thu in
formation they have a right to. But in
what sort of a light does this course lenva
the president, as contrasted with his pro
fessions ? How is thu fundamental princi
ple of civil service reform the divorce of
federal patronage from partisan politics
to be maintained under such a condition
of affairs ?
The St. Albans Mcsscnycr which is
bound to decry anything and everything
done by Senator Kdmunds, thinks it has
discovered that the senator's Intluence is
waning in the Senate. The proof it offers
is as follows :
The presidential succession and the elec
toral count lulls are two of Senator Kd
munds s pet schemes. The former was
taken in hand by Senator Kvarts and at
tended to himself against the earnest on-
position ot our Vermont senator, by a vote
01 ;i 7 to u.
We are not sure that we understand
this remark. It seems, however, to mean
that Mr, Kvarts carried a pet sehemo of
Mr. Kdmuuds's against the hitter's opposi
tion, lien Mr. Kdmunds adopted the
tactics of opposing his own pet schemes
does not appear ; but we believe It Is a
fact that on tho only matter connected
with the presidential succession hill on
which the Senate divided, tho Republi
cans of the Senate voted with Mr. Kd
munds two to one. The.WmcM'jcr further
remarks that in a controversy with Mr.
Kdmunds, on Tuesday, on tho electoral
.count bill, Mr. Kvarts won by a vote of
30 to 3-i. Tho facts are, as any one who
turns to thu congressional record can
see, that there was no "controversy" be
tween Mr. Kdmunds and Mr. Kvarts on
any vital provision. Mr. Kvarts otrered
an amendment, and Mr. Kdmunds ap
proved it; saying that It embodied a valu
able Ideu. A motion was made to recom
mit tho bill to tho committee. Mr. Hoar
opposed recommitting; Mr. Kdmunds
thought Mr. Evarts's amendment could
be embodied without recommitting. The
only vote taken was on this minor point;
nnd on this Senators Dawes, Hour, Haw
ley, Frye, Cameron, Hlair, Morrill, Ixigan
nnd others of tho strongest Republicans
in tho Senato voted with Mr. Kdmunds.
Sherman, Harrison, Kvarts and Ingalls
voted tho other way and enough Demo
crats with them to carry tho motion to re
commit, It was not a party question, or
one Involving any principle. Tho action
delayed Instead of forwarding tho bill,
and It Is simply puerile, to attempt to
make a case of loss of prestige or new
leadership, for anybody, out of such a

Gentlemen : When the Legislature of
Vermont was summoned together In lbiil,
the great question before the General As
sembly was how much Vermont should
raise for war expenses. It was a tlmu of
anxiety. Members of tho dominant party
In the State, with great nervousness and
hesitation, had reached a point where they
had decided to recommend that half a mil
lion of dollars be raised for war expenses.
But there wasn gentleman in that Assem
bly who appreciated the situation closer
than any one else, who saw with a pro
phetic vision thu war that was before us,
and he olfcred an amendment that the
State of Vermont should raiso one million
of dollars. At that time, what John A.
Andrew was to thu Statu of Massachusetts
Stephen Thomas was to the State of Ver
mont. Great applause. He was a lead
er of public sentiment and public thought.
He was a leader of men. And when he
received his commission as Colonel in
November he entered aCtlvelv into thu re
cruiting of his regiment, and in a little
over two months he was ready and started
for tiie field, and on the tented Held be
came the leader of men. It was seen in
Camp Bislaud, when, under two daws'
artillery lire, he alone of all the generals
Held and stalf ollicers remained on his
horse. It was seen when he led his brig
ade in that magnificent assault upon Port
Jiutisou on .May wi. it was seen again at
Winchester, when, without orders, see
ing the opportunity, he ordered the charge
that pierced the rebel centre. It was seen
again at Cedar Creek, when he led his
brigade across the pike in that early morn
ing to stem the onslaught. But while ad
miring this great leadership, wu who
served under him recognized above that,
true manhood, and wu would olfur him
that devotion which loving sons give to a
revered iatner. 11..01111 ami continued ap
plause. Gentlemen, I have the pleasure
of introducing to you General Steuben
Thomas of Vermont. Uproarious ap

of General Thomas, and then the General

Mr. Chntrmun, CdinmOcn unrt Fellow.
I have often heard it said that it Is very
dlllicult to make an after-dinner speech.
But, after an introduction such as has
been made here, I llnd It doubly dlllicult.
My friend has spoken in his Introduction
of the leader ot men. It strikes me that
it is men that leads man. In relation
to the matter refei red to relative to the
State of Vermont, it seems to me that I
was but urged forward by a public senti
ment that I felt existed among the loyal
sons ot tiie State. Applause. I feel that
if I would 1 could not have done less. I
believe I felt as many felt, that wu were
to nass through a very serious war. I felt
on that occasion that over and above
everything else we owe it to our country
to doall that we could applause, audi
felt that I was propelled forward by men,
by the spirit of men, by the spirit of our
fathers who have gone long before us. In
relation to being coupled with that noble
patriot, John A. Andrew, I never dream
ed that it was possible that my name
could anywhere be associated witli his,
with his devotion to country. Applause
Mr. Chairman, in your allusion to the
tented Held and my being the leader of
men, I felt that I had the noblest body of
men behind me that any commander ever
led into the Held. I felt that the promise
that 1 had made to the Governor when I
was raising that command, that what the
head lacked should bu made up by the
subalterns, was fully fullllled. General
Butler once saiil ill reference to the recom
mendations of his men that hu had a set
of men who were all lit for Major Gener
als. When that came to my notice I said
that was tho fact, that they were lit and
there ought to be promotion to make them
Generals. When any one was in com
mand of men that would follow him anv.
where, regardless of all danger and of
all consequences, and would stand by him
could he help going ahead I think not,
Mr. Chairman, 1 think not. And indeed,
that was the situation that I felt that 1
was iu. 1 felt that I was urged on, that
they knew that their duty was forward,
not backward, that they knew that if they
fell at all It must bo with their faces to
the enemy. Yes, on that bloody morning,
tho l'.ith ot October, I felt ho. It was a
terrible morning, and there are those here
who will remember it, and who know In
reference to the orders that were issued to
tako that brigade across the pike into that
belt of timber and hold it. The brigade
went across tho that pike, but many of
them, very many of them, a majority of
them, never came buck, but were left
there. But, thank God, they obeyed tho
order that was given and not one of them
faltered, and those that fell, foil with their
luces to tiie enemy, limit applause.
Indeed, they were Vermonters. Indeed,
they were New Emrlanders. Indeed, thev
were American soldiers. The soldiers of
tho West and of tho East fought side by
side and they fell side by side, and their
oioou commingled and fertilized the
Southern earth. It was our homes and It
was their homes that have been saved to
belong to this glorious land, whoso Stars
and Stripes float triumphantly from tho
Atlantic to tho Pacific, and from the Gulf
to inu ureal l.aKes or the North. ILoud
applause.) Those men at tho South can
say, I believe, if they will but sneak their
honest convictions, that thov thank Coil
that the men from tho North finally suc
ceeded, and that they were defeated, and
mm, we now nave a united country, one
Hag, one Constitution and one nonnle.
I Great applause. Mr. Chairman, com
rades and brethren, I thank you for this
letepuoii, aim i woiiiii 10 uoii mat l lull
that I was worthy ol it But I feel that
in all the long past audi am nearly to
the haven, 1 anrnearly to that land of rest
from which no traveler returns I have
aimed, under nil circumstances and upon
all occasions, to be true lo the land of my
fathers. Continued applause. My great
desire now Is for the perpetuity of this
land during the centuries that are to come.
Col. Herbert E. Hill was introduced as
one who Is very near and dear to Gen.
Thomas, and as the Hrst lo erect monu
ments upon tho battlellelds of Winches
ter and Cedar Creek. Col. Hill said that
the heroism of Stephen Thomas was to
the armies of the East what the heroism
of George II. Thomas was to those of the
West. He related incidents of the brav
ery of Gen. Thomas at Winchester and
Cedar Creek. He expressed his pleasure
at being present and loining iu the con
gratulation to Gen. Thomas, and closed
by reading the following telegram from
Senator Kdmunds of Vermont :
Gen. Stephen Thomas was and is always
true to every duty and was kind to every
man. Our State Is proud of him. I wisl'i
him and you long life and every enjoy

Some Pleasant lilts of Description from
tho Huston Herald.
The Boston Herald came out with its
illustrated carnival nrti'cio on Friday
two days earlier than was at Hrst intend
ed, owing to that journal's rivalry with the
(Unite, which has also had a representa
tive on tho ground for the past four days.
It was generally understood that both
journals would publish their specials in
the Sunday editions, but the Hcmlil
man utilized the telegraph Thursday, and
got In ahead of his rival. The following
are some pleasant bits of description from
tno i icrititi s special wuicu, with l ie live

While n great deal of interest is taken in
the tobogganing slides, traverse coasting
is the popular mid favorite winter sport
with everybody here, l'.ven the mavor
of the city. Col. Woodbury, does not con

the city, whose only regret was that the
