[New York World.] The debate in the Senate on Friday was uncommonly interesting. Mr. Gordon's measure may not be practicable, and Mr. Sherman was right enough in pointing out that it should not have been introduced into the Senate. * But Senator Gordon's speech was the speech of an houeet man—a man who when he sees a thief hates him, and ob jects to theft "as such." Mr. Morton's apeeoh was the speech of a political trickster, who, when he sees a thief, '-consents with him," and objects to theft not as theft, but as having a tendency to hurt " the party." He u a wretched demagogue and represents with entire aocuraoy the loweet and meanest e ement in oar politios. This is not a thing to be aaid lightly about any man, and we do not it lightly about Morton. There is not another Senator, except Logan, of whom it coaid be said with the same fullness. Morton's cleverness saves him from tumbling into those amazing abysses of ignoranoe in which the Senator from Illinois habitually welters. Bat he is every bit as low and sordid a sort of pol itician. He is a disgrace to the Senate, and the people of Indiana who sent him there. It was appropriate that ha should defend our present so-oalled civil service, for it is just auch people as he who thrive by it As for Senator Gordon's speech, we see no justification in the report of it for Senator Sherman's calling it a partisan speech. It seems to have been made with the honeet purpose of reforming the collection of the revenue. Everybody who begins to think about the matter will presently be brought up against Senator Gordon's conclusion, that no real reforming can be done in that way ex cept by patting it in charge of a act of experts appointed for the purpose and bolding their places while they do their duties, instead of a mob of amateurs appointed because they have wendered or are expected to render political ■servi o es, and removable when they ceese to bo of political nse. This is what Morton ob jects to as tending to turn our government from a republic into a monarchy. We have heard the same thing many times from Logan. When anybody asserts that honesty is a good •quality, or that a man ofight to know his business, or that he should not talk in public until first learning what he is talking abont, Logan straightway denounces those senti ments as "monarchical." gif sense and honesty and» deoenoy and faithful service are unattainable exoept under a- monarchy, a good many people <Will not hate to see that speotre half so mnoh as they hate Jto see Morton and Logan continually advocating the reign of in competency and dishonesty and appealing to the meanest and most sordid prejudices of the meanest and most sordid people, and pretending to be typical "Republicans."

Detroit Free Tress— "A pawnbroker at Muscatine, Iowa, advanoed money on all the furs that came along last winter, and at the present time can offer only one summer gar ment for sale, and that is a coral ring." It » absolutely impossible for a school, a faotory, a machine shop, an army, or a system of fcivil service officials, to be trne and faith ful to the work in hand, if the bead, the leader, is corrupt, or dishonest, or inoapable.

Grant ism, savs the Sun, is compounded of low «reed, obtnse moral sentiment, shoddy dis plays, the nse of pnblio office for private gain , the rewarding of those who make yon presents by places of honor and trust, the •enriching all yonr relatives at the expense of the government, the ignoring of all the better public opinion, the conception that high offioe is a reward ana not an obligation îm posed-in fine that the governysnt is to be administered in the selfish interests of the governors and for their aggrandizement.
