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,

the country and the Democratic
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

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

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

tiio worthless ship contracts of his
Republican predecessors. When
he wishes to go to sea on the rag

does not use a government ship,

was, in substance, that the officers

were not able to prevent their

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.

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

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

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

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

anybody to do otherwise is a spe

people ought to he the first to re
