In deed, la my Judgment, It is en act of parly perfidy little short of a moral crime. Alone ot all the Lrsnches of the govtrnmetit th judiciary now stand brtwevn ihnSoutii and its avowed hotlli:j to the prlni' plt'i of iu systrios and policies adopted by the tcoveru mnt ail accepted by the srent body of the Amcroia pccpln si the result of the ear.

For eveu whan be bad for two years a republican ooogrei tt support him be was not able, ever, with both supreme aud nstiensl power,' t - .'da evsn the L'. H. courts in the do'ilii aimer Iu enscjto the laws ef ths natln . sr enforce their process. Not only tkl but President llsrrison ws not able, with el republican eonrrr nnd eabinet, and a repirbliean supreme court, to protect the lives of bts own cahiuel in the dia cl.srts of their duties Houlh, and the families of the victims were left to a bitter life of pov erty a tri o.traeioin. That a rtpuhlioan president, when the Fouth nsliher In It pre nor If any public utter eucs of ita people condemn outra(re en the negroes, shoul.I, in selscting a sr.preme Judge from the houlh, ehoose a mail who rvpretents suoh cruelty to the uetro, und list be should do it on the very day after a negro bad been burned alive and tortured with the passive consent of the sttte and local authorities in a southern itle, mskes it trnr aud both un aecour.lahle aod mora to be con demned, whether this act of President Harrison the greatest solecism io party pollilos ever oommbud by any preaideut, and tbe first Instance since the foundation of the re pub lean party of a president selecting for the supreme court a man of opposite puiaiotl parly was done in personal pnjue over bis own defeat, or from whatever motive or causr, the republiean seua:e owes it to the party of Lincoln, Grant and lilaine to eondsran it To aocspt and eon firm it would be le confess rspublieialsm a sham and all its glorious principles eauting hypocrisy. For any senstorof republican faith to vote for it is to stultify himself and his party as much as if he had voted for Cleveland in November, If demo rrats and unrecanted believers lo secession and state rights and free tra.le and hatred of the ttulon siddier raty be appointed to the euprcne bench by a republican presi dent and confirmed by a republican senate, there would seem to have come a time wbeu tbere is lo use for a republioan to live at all. CLEVELAND'S LiUSY DAY, He Had Many Callers nnd Conferences a Well. New York, Feb. 1. Special. Mr. Cleveland's last businsps day in the city before hi departure for Washington to be Inaugurated as president wai a bney one. lie cumo in on Ti carl v train, as ho lias been doing for the pat two weeks, and found plenty of callers awaiting hie arri val, and aa far as possible he saw every body that came. In the afternoon a Ion? conference woi held with ex-Secretary Faircbild, ex-Mayor Oraco and Oswald Oltendorlor. These gentlemen were ac cords'! all the time they wanted and no doubt diecupied fu ly all the different question! in which they wer interested. He left t!ie oflice about 4 o'clock, iceing State Senator McClellarpl for a few min utea. He waa accompanied on hie return to Fakewood by his old postmaster-general, Don M. Dickinson, who, during the past fortnight, has made several aimilar journeys. As he has already announced this la Mr. Cleveland's last business day it tho city before bis departure for Washington for the inauguration eierciaea. He will, por baps, he compelled to return to the city two or three times, but, if ao, it will be to attend to matters rsiju ring personal at tention, and he will not go to bia oillce nor receivo visitor. It in certain that his plans at Lakewood will make. It lmpoibld for him to aoe any considerable number of ca lere. He has reched just such a place in his work that he ran now go on and complete it Thus far he baa had no opportunity to think of bis inaugural add re, or ol tho policy to be pursued on a good many important queaiioua that are either continuous In their inteent or cer tain to arise immediately after his as !umptioa of office. Jie baa laid to iome of his best friends that he wül not be able to give them any special time or attention during tbe next fonr weeks. Congressman O'Ferral waa in the city today and called upon Mr. Cleveland, al though he ineirtted that he had no cabinet appointments to urge. Mr. OTerrai ia the moat prominent candidate for the suc cession to the governorship in hi state, and haa long been regarded as a strong free silver advocate. Today he said on this question: "As to piiverlegielation in con gress, if tbe Andrewa silver bill could ever be brought to a vote in the house. 1 think it would pass. Tbe free coinaire members will vote against it and doubilees filibuster all they can. I doubt very much whether it w ill come to a vote this eesMon unless some kind of a cloture rule is put in oper ation. I am not eo rabid for free coinage. Tbcu. I waa're-electod two years ago and my constituents instructed me to vote for free coinage, and I did so. But since that time a decided revolution ha "taken placo in tbe eentiment of the peo ple in luv district. They thought two yenra ago that free i ver would be the wav to relieve the money situation, but now, they have modified their views greatly on the mbject. They want a good dollar now. and they are net anxious for fiee coinage. In other sections of the Jrouth the aenlirnont in favor of fro ilu,r has changed. There I the ultra advocate of free Kilver, Congressman Fiorce of Tennessee, who even failed to r ecu re a re nomination the last time and thinking tho free silver element wa strong enough to elect hitn, ran a an independent. Ho was badly defeated, showiug that ho mis took the real eentiment of tbe pcop e. Other extreme free silver men in tho South have found that their constituent are not extrem sts on the eulject. 1 hxve not decided yet how 1 will vote on tho Andrew eilver bill. 1 certainly would like to sen the Sherman ailver purchase act r'pnled and Ica pilver coined. I should be willing to v. do for a rv.enpur that w ould rep I it and restore the Wand act. Then instead of MXXM.K) being coined monthly only f.'.UtXl.OUO would be coined." Mr. O'Ferral'said that tho anti-option bill would certainly pas if it camo to a vote by two lo one. lie favornd an oarly extra session in order to begin work im n.eJiutely on the titriir, aud huve a new tsrill' tii e ami re by the next congressional election. The people ex peeled the burd . n- roHM McKinley nemuro to Im wiped out, and the deinocr&tH should do it at once. JUDGE JACKSON TALKS. He Per Nothing In the War of l.rror In III Appoint ma lit. Cincinnati, Feb. C Judge Howell Y Jackson, recently nominated by l'reaideut Harrison for the oillce ofanociite justice of the U. S. supremo court, h here today in connection with bis duties aa circuit jul:e. Ho was warmly congratulated by members of the bar wjjh whom bo haa al ways been a favorite. Speaking of his re cent appointment, he laid: "1 havo bad no communication with the president relative to my appointment either before or since I waa informed of it A few days h f..re tbe appointment was tuadit I bad a letter from one of the present justice Haying he hoped the provident might see his way clear tu ap point rue to the vacant pot. About the same time I bad a litter froui it prominent law ver of Detroit expronsinn the same hope. I wart not consulted, aud ae far aa I know tho president did not consult with any one relative to the matter. I have no i loa who will be. my aucewbsor, but 1 would like to say a word about nn item I saw in a morning paper. It wua said whuu I wa appointed that Harri-iou might appoint his old law partner, (ien. Miller, to the place I vncated. .Now, aa a matter of fact, such a thing is imponsillo, even bad the president dcfired it. My succehior must e taken from my own dis trict, (ien. Miller Is of the seventh dis trict and ia not e igiblo." "Do you think the president should hum let Cleveland mako tho appoint meiit?" "Not at all. It Is ne new thing for a re tiring president to make such appoint ments. President John Atfmi'i appointed Chief Justice Mar ahull only two days before the inauguration of Thomas JoUerson, who objected to such action aerlouely, and l'resideut Jackson appointed Justice Car ton and bad him continued on the morn ing of March 4, onlv a few hours before ho ' retired from the pres idency. The appointment of a democrat by republican president see. is a good step to ward removing the court sti I further iro'n the realm of Col inen, with w hich it ahould not have tho leant connection." Washington', Feb. fl.
