Sir William Harooubt, the English politician, is a man of im posing if not pompons pretence. He is inclined to be facetious, and at time* attempted to be witty. He has a more extensive literay knowl edge than any other politician, with the probable exception of Mr. Gladstone. Tun first tiling tlmt strikes the j beholder about Sir Henry l’onson j by is his red nose.

He used to say that tho sight of hooks was necessary to him at his work; and once reading how Schil ler always kept ‘‘rotto’n apples” in his study because their scent was beneficial to him, lie pointed to some shelves above his head, where ho kept his oldest and most prized editions, and said ‘•There are my rotton apples THE DEPARTMENTS. Signalizing Themselves In Making Much Needed Reforms. Washington, I). C., July 17, JSf>. —SjSot iiil Cor. Arkansas 1). Ml.x-rat. The president, Secretaries Man ning, Lamar and Postmaster Gen eral Vilas left the city on Saturday afternoon to spend Sunday at the chib house of the Woodmont Rod and Gun Club. The distinguished party spent the Sabbath very qui etly in a wild sylvan retreat of 3000 acres owned by the club and returned much refreshed on Mon day. The president has been working too many hours. lie lias been sit ting up too late at night in order to dispose of the vast number of applications for office that await his attention. ITeis not exhaust ed, but is very tired. Last week lie saw visitors only on three days —Monday, Wednesday and Fri day—nml experienced considera ble relief from the pressure that had been put upon him. The appointment of Mr. Steven son of Illinois first assistant post master general is one of the most fortunate selections that [the pres ent administration has made. Ho has attacked the large arrears of business with such enorgy that in the short space of a week over 2000 new appointments has been made. To dispatch such a bulk of details with such general approval, and absence of ground for cavil, in dieati s executive ability of a high order. The position of lirst assis tant postmaster general has be come, owing to the immense growth of the service, one of the most im portant under the government, and it is a pleasure to know that it is not tilled by a Ilatton or a Tyner, hut in a way to reflect credit on the country and the Democratic party. Postmaster General Vilas mot Mr. Stevenson at tiie Chicago con vention. Each was strongly im pressed in favor of the other, and they have been warm friends ever since. Mr. Stevenson represented his district in the Forty-fourth and Forty-sixth Congresses. Ho lias since been practicing law in Bloom ington, 111. Ho is forty-eight years of age, vigorous and able. Many public men have been made his friends by his genial and at tractive disposition as well us by his solid worth. The ex-First Assistant Postmas ter General Halcolm Hay has gone to Colorado in hope that his feeble frame may be strengthened by tho climate. It is well known that after ho was appointed four months ago ho went South lor his health. When ho returned here to under take Ins official duties the disburs ing clerk handed him his salary for two months. Mr. Hay dccliu e<l to receive (lie money, saying he hail not earned it, and by his di rection the amount of his salary for these two months of absonse from his desk was covered into the treasury. Secretary Whitney's idea of re form is to reform, llo uoes not rest content with one good deed well done, lie recently brought from New York an expert account ant who has devised a new rnothod of book keeping for the bureaus of the navy department. Hereafter each item of the naval appropria tion will have its separate account and by this means the balance re maining to each specific appropria tion can be seen at a glance.’ The displaced system is no system at all, but an unwieldy accumulation of different methods to which each change of regime has added its quota of confusion. Seeretasy Whitney is giving the enemies of good government a great deal of annoyance. Ho re fuses to except without question tiio worthless ship contracts of his Republican predecessors. When he wishes to go to sea on the rag ing Potomac he hires his boat, and does not use a government ship, lie has abrogated the rule fordid tling officers to allow their wives to follow them to distant ports. His reason for abrogating this rule was, in substance, that the officers • were not able to prevent their wives doing pretty much as they pleased. It is expected that Democratic offi cers for the district government will very soon be appointed, but it is not probable that tho new ap pointees will be residents of the District of Columbia. A gentleman recently ventured to give the president some advice as to the kind of man he should appoint to a certain district offieo. Mr. Cleveland said: “I think I know what is needed. My own experience will bo a guido to mo. as the eheif executive of a city gov ernment I gained tho approval of men of both political parties ai»4 I acquired a kuowlodgo of whafc qualifications are most needed in municipal governments. I will give every appointment a careful consideration,’1 A Clean Swoop, —Arkansas Democrat. In tho department of justice At torney-General Garland has made a clean sweep. Tno New York Tribune ol Monday says; ‘‘The de partment of justice is now cleansed of Republican officials. Mr. Gar land has done bis work quickly and effectively. He can afford once more to be a civil service reformer. It is a question of time merely when his colleagues will follow his example in tho other departments.’’ ‘•Cleansed of Republican officials,’’ is a good phrase—very appropriate and highly expressive. The plain meaning is that the department of justice of which Mr. Garland is the honored head is now filled with brand new officials who are clean Democrats. The Tribune says that Mr. Garland has done his work “quickly* and effectively.” That is the way to do work. When you kill off a lot of Republican officials the work should bo done with neat ness and dispatch and in all re spects according to the scriptual injunction—“decently and in or der.” There is no excuse for cru elty in the work and Mr, Garland .those heart is as tender as a wo man’s would have none of it. W hen lie went into office he simply in formed a number of assistants in his department that in a short time lie would want their places for Democrats. These gentlemen took him at his word and when re quested sent in their resignations. They recognized the fact that this is a Democratic administration and that Cabinet officers have the right and it is their duty to fill their de partments with Democrats. They have retired to private lifo with the Attorney-General—and as a correspondent puts it with “no vil lifying charges against them, free from the hateful and embittering sense of having had an unknown stigma ea t upon their characters.” Mr. Garland has done well. Let his example be followed. T!io Owaho. The Omaha is a United States war vessel, on winch the Chandler administration labored long and lovingly, putting on her, or at least taking out of the Treasury for the alleged purpose of putting on her, about A000,000 iu the way of re pairs. After undergo! ug such an elabor I ate and costly cour.su of rejuvena tion, she was, not long ago, taken otf the docks and rashly shoved iu the wet, wet water, although she was not called upon for any ser vice uutil a few days ago, when tdio was steamed out to act as an escor of tho Is- re, on tho occasion of the reception at >few York of the Bartholdi statute of Liberty. This however, seems to have been too much for her, I'crhaps the sea air did not agreo with her, or she becamo over-heated in the excitement attending tho patriotic ceremonies. At any rate, she has been ailing ever since. And so it was decided to call in the doctors and diagnose her case, as the symptoms strongly indicate a need of more ‘‘repairs.” Whether she will get them, is , yet to be seen. It will doubtless | puzzel the present administration j to decide what to do with these J Oinahas, the costly ami worth- ! less soureuira of Republican ex travagance, incompctency and job bery. Whether it is worth while to spend more inouty tinkering on thorn in the attempt to save some thing of tho millions which have already been sunk in them, is one of the by no means pleasant ipu-s- j tions with which the new adminis- j tration is confronted. Courier j -Journal. ! 4 The Same Old Sony. The canvass in Ohio was inaugu rated last Thursday at Columbus, and Mr Foraker sounded the key note of the campaign and the stench has filled tho whole country with its sickening odors. Ho waved tho bloody shirt, and all tho speeches were of (he bloody shirt odors. Local issues, and great na tional questions concerning the material interests of tho people, were ignored, and tho stale,; exhausted issues of tho war were prominently discussed. In allud ing to the stink pots which th e Republicans of Ohio have emptied into (ho cam ass, the Philidelpliia Times says: j;‘Tho necessity or retrenchment in government expenses, a proper reduction of tho revenues and u bettor and more effecting civil ser vice were entirely ignored and the old worn-out war issues only wore discussed. Tho woes of tho col ored voters and tho wickedness of tho Southern Democracy were pict ured lurid colors and the faithful were urged to rally and fight tho war over again. It is twenty years I since tho war ended, and tho party | that insists that it is still raging, I and can get no nearer to the vital j issue of the present day than the j speakers at Columbus were able to -got, soundly deserves defeat, and i will certainly gat what it deserves, ' unless its opponents prove loo Hel lish aud stupid to seize the oppor tunity.” flood mon of all parties will en dorse the comments of flic Times. The war ended twenty years ago. j The bloody drama has closed,.the | curtain lisi3 been rung down the j lights turned oil', and the people ! engaged in the busy pursuits of life and they laugh at the farce which the republicans ot Ohio are enact ing before empty benches, llicre was a time when thousands of poo plo at the North feared that a res toration of nation al power to the Democracy would result in some serious disaster to the country. The ad ministration ot President Cleveland lias shown how idle were these fears. Peace and tran quility pervades every section of the Union, No reasonable sentiments are avowed in any sec tiouoftlie republic. The South is as loyal to the tlag and the na tionality it represents as the North, and the country is as safe under the Democratic party as it was when in the bunds of Abraham Lincoln or Grant. In the face of these facts the Republicans of Ohio raise the bloody shirt and scream at the rebels,the traitors|aud the disloyalty of the South. The American people can no longer be frightoned by such demagogy. The Union lias been subjected to almost every conceivable test, and it 4-m emerged brighter and strong er,"' Its principles are so fifntfly rooted in too hearts ot tho people that no conceivable political tom post can dislodge them.—Memphis Appeal.

About Lore. There are so many styles and varieties of love, that there would not he any advertising space left in Texas Siftings, if we undertook to enumerate one-half of them. There is love of money, the lack of which is the root of nil evil, and which causes so many merchants to make assignments ami clerks to monkey with tiie till. There is love of friends, which canscs men to goon bonds and cm dorse notes, which they BtibSe (piently have to make good, while they wail and gnash their teeth. There is also love of benefactors which is touchingly exemplified in tho admiration which a newly ap pointed postmaster has for tho ad ministration at Washington. • There is love of country which impels hank officials to ticc to Can ada. Politicians often lovo their country so much that they are uu* willing to allow anybody else to run for the office they want. And lastly but not leastly, there is love between the opposing sex es. It is the last phnso of love that is to blatno when tiie wild eyed poet catches up the theme, and rushing upon the wings ot an escaped imagination, has, souring aloft where the tempest king rode witli loosened reins, sung of its passion aiul pain, and. returning has gaused in the groves where tho silver-footed antelope—not cantoloupe—as gracefully and gai ly springs, as o’er tho marble courts ot kings, and sung of its blessings and peace. Hut that is not the fall extent of tho damage, for the aforesaid poet sings tho stufl'into the oftich bf the weary editor and tries to rend it to him; and perhaps goes oft With the editor’s blue pencil. The historian has yielded love a passing tribute, while tho writer of-fiction has made it out a great deal worse than it really is. Ha con, himself, wrote an essay on the subject, that made the object of his affections so mad that ahe ever af terwards regarded him in the light of a brother. Great masters have enshrined it in immortal composition. When they have been allowed tp rise for a moment ubove tho scenes of time, and catch the strains of the heavenly melody, they have again descended, and poured forth those bars of music which have fallen like the soothing melodies that are dragged backwards by the tail out of one of those fifty-cent orgui nettes, or the gentle toots that a one legged man pumps out of a brass mounted coruet, on the corn er of a boulevard, before he goes round with tho tin cup.—Texas ■Siftings. Tllojr Should YotC as They Please. —New York Join. Romo of the Republicans are very much disturbed because it is already apparent thut a portion of the colored votes of Ohio will not support Judge Foraker, tho Re publican candidate for Governor, They seem to think that every colored man js bound, as a matter of course, to cast his ballot ojj all occasions for tho nominees of the Republican party. Indeed, they have been wont to argue this ques tion on the assumption thut in some peculiar sense the colorod voters belong to that party, and arc for all political purposes its property, so that it is a gross vio lation of the most sacred obliga tions fur a single man ot them to support a Democrat for ollico un der any cin !instances. This is utter uousense. Tho rights and duties of colored voters stand on the same grounds with those ol white voters, Racii is at liberty to cast his ballot to suit himself.
