The case of Miss Taylor, who has been deprived of her situation in the Classified Civil Service as a clerk in the War Department, has elicited from President Roosevelt a ruling obviously designed to square Secretary Root in his plan of nullifying a statute of the United States when it do*s not suit him. The President's order is embodied in Treasury Department circular Xo. 105, and, though it is quite lengthy, we give it here in full so that there may be no uns understa tiding:— Whereas certain mis understandings have existed in regard to the proper construction of Section 8 of Civil Service Rule II, which pro vides as follows:-— . . , "Xo removal shall be made from the competitive classified service exeent for just cause and for reasons given in writing: and the person sought to Ik* removed shall have notice and be furnished a copy of such reasons, and lie allowed a reasonable time for personally answering the same in whiting. Copy of such reasons, notice, and answer andI of the order of removal shall be made a part of the records of the proper de partment or office; and tin* reasons for any change in rank or compen sation within tiie competitive classified service shall also be made a part of the records of the proper department or office. Xow. for the purpose of preventing ail such misunderstandings ami improper constructions of said section, it is hereby declared that the term "just cause,” as used in Section 8. Civil Service Rule II is in tended to mean any cause, other than one merely political or relMou.. which will promote the efficiency of the service: and nothing contained in said rule shall he construed to require the examination of witnesses or any trial or hearing except in the discretion of rte officer making the removal. THEiODOIlfci KUUM*. \ c.i-c. We do not think that the public will need signposts to reach a true esti mate of the effect of this-extraordinary document. The law, as quoted, appears to provide certain safeguards for employes in the classified service, but the President rules that anything in the world which a head of department chooses to consider "cause” for removal, is a sufficient cause, and as lie abolishes all effective irppeal* we must conclude that either Con gress was playing a confidence game on the public when it framed the law or else the President has power to abrogate a statute whenever he pleases. It remains to be seen whether the courts will view the matter in the same light. If they decide that tlie President, by setting his own definition upon the key word in a statute, can deprive that statute of the effect which Congress intended it to have, we do not see the use in having any Congress at all. Why not let the President issue his ukase like the Czar of Russia and avoid all the trouble and contradiction of the present situation. It would certainly be simpler and honester than the present way, by which we are led to think the law says one thing, only to find that it says another, because the President chooses to put that other interpretation on it. POLICE DEMORALIZATION. When the last campaign was on, the “Evening Journal harped on the ar gument that Mayor Fagan should be elected in order that a Commissioner should be put in the Police Board who would co-operate with Dr. McGill in en forcing stern discipline in the force. This note was sounded not once but tift> times. Sometimes two or three articles in the same paper would insist upon the point. But when Mayor Fagan was elected, he appointed a Police Commissioner who totally ignored Dr. McGill, and, now, it would appear, the admirable disci pline which the Doctor had established in the twot years, during which he pre sided over the Board, has disappeared and the force is rapidly slipping down to a state of demoralization. Pull once again counts and the men are learning that if they have the Sam Dickinson Association behind them, they can do pretty much as they please. The expenditure of the Department, too, has been made a matter of party graft and honest men who have given the public excellent value for their money in the past no longer get any show. The conditions which exist are just wlrat were to be expected. The “Jour pal's” ante-election talk was mere hypocrisy, a confidence game to catch votes. SEYMOUR FOR SHERIFF OF ESSEX. At the annual outing of the Joel Parker Association of Newark, on Tliurs lay, an occasion upon which the Democratic ticket of Essex always begins to take shape, it was proposed to run Mayor James M. Seymour for Sheriff of the County. As Major Carl Lentz is to be the Republican candidate, a fight be tween these two would be a most interesting contest. There are a good many Republicans in Essex who do not feel as sure as the doughty Major does that he .is going to be elected without a struggle, x acre is a serious question in their minds whether Major Lentz is so strong with the people of Essex as he thinks he isi. His success heretofore has lain mainly in his ability to carry primaries and. the least tyro in politics knows that electing a primary ticket and getting elected to office yourself at a regular election are two very different propositions. The methods which are available at primaries and which are the main factors in bringing about sneccss are, unfortunately for the Major and his kind, prohibited at general elections by the Werts ballot re form law. Moreover, there are many Republicans in Essex wiio resent the high handed mannerdn which the Major dominates the party in that county and they are only waiting for the opportunity to give practical expression to that resentment which the Major’s candidacy for office would afford. On the other hand, no Democrat in the County is more popular with the people than James M. Seymour. This was amply attested by the large pluralities which be received every time lie has run for Mayor of the City of Newark, and there is plenty of evidence that he is just as strong today ns he was when he was three times elected the Chief Magistrate of the largest city in the State. There appears to be some doubt whether Mayor Seymour would take the nomination! It is to be hoped that he will remove that doubt soon and consent to make the fight against Lentz. He would take much of the chestiness out of Major Carl, and would, at the worst give him a hard fight. The people of Essex would serve their best interests if they would elect the Mayor Sheriff and rebuke the arrogance of the self important Major, aud it is not at all impossible tha, they might do that very thing. THE PUZZLED COMMISHES. Up pops another of the Excise Commissioners in explanation. This time it is President Siebert ,and lie wouldn’t have voted as he did vote if he didn’t think it was all right to vote that way and maybe he will vote some other winy if he has to vote again upon the things that he voted on before. You are all right, Mr. President; but you can’t serve reform and the new slum allies of the Republican party any more than you can simultaneously do homage to God and mammon. The silk-stockings and the saloons are incompati ble and the Fagan combine, of which you are an ornament, will have to choose. It cannot ride two horses. _ THE DEADLY BONFIRE. We have had more than a surfeit of children burned to death by playing around bonfires this season. There is no reason why the police should not-do mnch to reduce this danger. If the children were amusing themselves in some innocent and harmless way, it is more than likely that the cop on the beat would amuse himself chasing them, but we never hear of him interfering or checking practices which are dangerous to both lives *and property. The captains should give stringent orders that lighting fires on the streets or in open lots, whether by children or older persons, should be rigidly suppressed. PEACE IN TRENTON. The Rev. Alfred Wishort has returned to his double barrelled occupation as Editor of the Trenton “Times” and Pastor of a flourishing Baptist congrega tion, and the dove of peace roosts once more on the banks of the Delaware. His “mill," the State Librarian, has returned to his books on the top floor Of the State House, and the Editor of the “State Gazette" his res timed his herculean tusk of figuring out how the Republicans of the Fourth district are going to elect Judge Limning to Congress in spite of the beautiful row going on between the Trenton City Hull Ring and the old State House gang. , The tilt between these two giant intellects was entertaining while it lasted, and greatly relieved the monotony of the vacation season. THE WEAKNESS OF THE WAR GAME. It appears that the vessels engaged in the war manoeuvres on the coast were completely enveloped in fog yesterday. Nothing came of it. For real war this would have been just the opportunity that the attacking party would have desired. An invading admiral would gladly take the risk of running a ship or two ashore or have a collision for the sake of passing the enemy's lines ami ef fecting the landing which is said to be the object of Commander Pillsbury’s tac tics. In mimic war. on the contrary, no commander in his right senses would be willing to risk anything. Brilliant strategy would be a very poor excuse for the loss of a ship in a mere practice game. This is the weak spot in learning the art of war by fictitious operations. Timid men are apt to be very bold where there is no real gain to compensate the risks which they take. Any old woman might have performed Dewey’s great feat in play, and Dewey himself would not have taken a fiftieth part of the risk if the only thing to be gained was to circumvent the ingenuity of another American admiral. THE PRESIDENT AND THE PAP. The more nervous of that army of Republicans in this State, who are long ins; for some share, however meagre, of the national pap, have been thrown into spasms of apprehension by one of Theodore Roosevelt’s recent plays to the gal lery. At one stage of the continuous performance which is now in progress at Sagamore Hill. Oyster Bay, the President threw out his chest and remarked eo that the newspaper men anywhere in the neighborhood could hear him, that he had no use for those Republicans who led factional lights. It is this remark that has thrown the Jersey grafters into tits. They knew that Senator John Kean and Representatives Henry Rouden slager and Charles N. Fowler are Republicans who are leading some of the worst factional fights that were ever fought, fights which are so bitter and un relenting that they threaten the party in the State with dire disaster, and they fear that Roosevelt will stand by what he says and ignore the recommendations of these combative Jersey leaders when he ladles out the soup. Hitherto the Federal office seekers have been led to believe that John Kean stands pretty close to the throne of Theodore I, and that Currency bowler and “Ilarry” Roudenslager were not far behind him. This has led them to place all their hopes upon the “triumpherate,” as Devery would say, and they have been working hard for the three, confident in the ability of the latter to reward them in the manner desired. If Roosevelt is going to turn the Senator and Congress man down, the office seekers see that all their labors have been in vain and the sight worries them. There is no reason, however, why they should be disturbed. There was a big. strong string to the utterances of their Spectacular President, and what he really meant was that he has no use for Republicans who lead factions other than the Roosevelt faction. All three of the Jerseymen mentioned are strong Roose velt men and will stand for the President’s renomination in 1004, if they are not dead ones themselves by that time. Therefore the pap is all right. They will have their share of it so long as there is a delegate to a National convention to be secured in New Jersey. OUR RELATIONS WITH TURKEY. There is one war which we rather think would be popular with almost every American, and that would be a war with the Snltaiy of Turkey. The powers of Europe are afraid to attack the unconscionable reptile, not on account of his own strength, but on account of each other. Their jealousy of each other’s preponderance in the Orient would doubtless involve the whole Continent in war if any one Government,—England, France, or Russia, for instance,—should at tempt to force Abdul Hamid to live according to the standards of the Twentieth Century. But no such difficulty would be involved in the United States teach ing him a lesson. We would and .could have no notion of territorial aggrandize ment. When we had bombarded the Yildiz Kiosk, occupied Stamboul, and perhaps taken the representative of the late Mohammed a prisoner of war, on one of our ships, we would simply exact an indemnity, compel guarantees of fu ture good behavior; and go about our business, returning His Majesty to the pal ace to be assassinated, or not, as the pleasure or his ladies and his ministers might dictate. It is certain, that something will soon have to be done about this Turkish question. Xot a year, hardly a month passes that some fresh violation of the principles of humanity is not reported from some part of the Turkish dominions, and there is hardly a month that the Turkish Government is not guilty of some act of international-perfidy. Assuredly, if our interference in the affairs of Spain and her colonies was warranted on moral grounds, there is no lack of justifica tion for our taking a hand in disciplining the worst ruler, all things considered, in the whole world. INLAND SHIPPING SCHEMES. The New Jersey Ship Canal is an excellent project, but we have our doubts whether Congress can be induced to appropriate the necessary money for it. Appropriations of that sort seldom succeed on their merits inside of twenty years of agitation, and as the G. O. P. would not be likely to gain by the expendi ture any considerable number of votes either at the polls or in the House of Representatives, it is likely that our children or grandchildren will be the earliest beneticaries of the idea. just whether the scheme is as good for Hudson County as for other parts of the State may be doubted. The diversion of commerce to the Delaware would not be a particularly brilliant advantage either to New York or Jersey City. Of course, we are not provincial enough to desire the other parts of the State to suffer for our benefit, but there is another project on the carpet which involves much less expenditure and which would be of equal benefit to the commerce of the pountry and the State at large, while it would especially benefit our own community. This is the development of the Hackensack River and its water front for the benefit of heavy shipping, and we are just selfish enough to desire that this great work should be realised before any of Uncle Sam’s spare cash is diverted to the proposed waterway which is to benefit Union, Middlesex and Mercer Counties. We are aware that sums, more or less considerable are annually spent oil the Hackensack, but nothing adequate to its importance. We believe that with the growth of commerce the bay and Hudson shores of Hudson will soon be overcrowded, and the Hackensack’s frontage will have to be opened up to deep water ships.

Always Afraid Something Dreadful is Going to Happen. Why Should Women Have the Blues More Than Men? When a cheerful, brave, and light-hearted woman is suddenly plunged into that perfection of misery, the blues, it is a sad picture. It is usually this way: She has been feeling out of sorts for some time, experiencing severe headache and backache; sleeps very poorly and is exceedingly nervous. Sometimes she i3 nearly overcome by faintness, dizziness, and pal pitation of the heart; then that bearing-down feeling is dreadfully wearing. Her husband says, “Now, don’t get the blues! You will be all right after you have taken the doctor’s medicine.” But she does not get all right. She grows worse day by day, until all at once she realizes that a distressing female complaint is established. Her doctor has made a mistake. She loses faith; hope vanishes; then comes the morbid, melancholy, everlasting blues. She should have been told just what the trouble was, but probably she withheld some information from the doctor, who, therefore, is unable to accurately locate her particular illness. Mrs. Pinkliam has relieved thousands of women from just this kind of trouble, and now retains their grateful letters in her library as proof of the great assistance she has rendered them. This same assist ance awaits every sick woman in the land. Write her to-day. How Two Women Were Cured. “ Dear Mrs. Pinkhaji : — I was troubled very much with female weakness, falling of the womb and bearing down pains.

Sap'omber One of the few magazines that give fair and unbiased treatment to the great affairs that make and move a nation, is “Success." Ohe by one it seems to be taking hold of the important American industries, and explaining ttu m in a man ner that interests all classes of readers. In the September issue, John Gilmer Sliced describes the methods and pur poses of the much mooted Beef Trust, in an article entitled, "The Beef Trust and the Public.” He gives a very thorough meaning of the reasons for the Trust and its relations to the general public. David Buffuni contributes an interesting article on “The.Correct Method of Train ing Horses,” which seems to be of value to all who appreciate horses. Martha McCulloch-Williams’s “The Idlers,” is a story of outdoor life that cannot fail to awaken some sort of inspiration in the most sordid. Magazine readers are now becoming accustomed to look for a good ly quota of the best monthly fiction in “Success,” and they are not being disap pointed. The current issue contains the first installment of a new short serial by Stewart Edward White, whose books, “The Westerners,” and “The Blazed Trail,” have placed him among the fore most of American authors. This new story is entitled, “The Magic Forest,” and is the fascinating narrative of a nine-year-old boy who was lost among the Indians of Canada. Few stories can prove more instructing and gripping than this one. Mr. White has, at least, shown the Indian in a new light,—that of a kind-hearted being. “Success” aiso contains some excellent stories of South ern students who are working their way through college, and illustrations of the paintings by the American women artists which were hung in the Paris salon this year. Henry VarnDyke and ^Hamilton Wright Maine contribute interesting ed itorial?.,011 education, and Wu Ting-fang tvrites about hi? impressions of Ameri ca. There are twenty-eight prominent names among those in the list of con ' tribntors. The issue is one that should be welcome in every home. It contains a fine variety, from its more ambitious subjects, stories, and poems, to the hu morous bug pictures by the noted Gus Dirks. IT 1$ TO LAUGH.
