A United State* Senntornhip Impending Upon tin- Decision of Got? Jltimilton in the L-tnnn-lirnnd Case. "What Will He Do With It? [Special Telegram to the Globe. I Washington, Nov. 28. — "Gov. Cleveland has now the opportunity to break up the Re publican or Democratic party, and ] am anx ious to know what he Intend* to do." This remark was dropped by a southern politician, who for years has been a keen and intelli gent observer of events in Washington. What may have justified this remark or been the cau6eof anyapprchension that (J.)V. Cleve land would break up the Democratic party I know not. Still, it is not to be denied that there is a great feeling of un easiness that the new president may break down nt the very threshold of his administra tion if he suffers his policy to be dictated by a coterie of Republicans who geek to shackle him with civil service law. It is to be borne in mind that all the dec larations thus far given to the public touch- j ing the new preßidcufs attitude towards tbe civil service rule, came from Re publican sources, aud all instances fvht pin the president-elect is alleged to have made any declaration on the subject have been to interviewers on behalf of the Republican press. Thus far Washington is not overran with politicians, but among those already here there is the hope that Mr. Cleveland will not forget the services of the great party behind Urn. Leaders of the party whose counsels will be valuable, if not Ignored, will differ with any policy which contemplates an administration of Demo cratic reforms and principles at the hands of Republican ofliceholders. Said a veteran Democrat: "President Cleveland must not overlook the fact that the so called Independent Re publicans are not Democrats. True, quite a Dumber of this class supported and voted for Grovcr Cleveland. This, not because of an endorsement of the Democratic platform or principles in contradistinction to the Repub lican platform, but because a persoual hatred of Blame. These meu do iot intend to stay with the Democratic party, and would leave It to-morrow ff the chance were given them to vcte for any Republican preß- Ideutial candidate except Blame. Hener.fnr the president-elect to be governed by such men is no more nor less than a Democratic figurehead as president, having his adminis trative policy dictated by a small minority of ;he Republican party." No matter what policy may be followed by the president-elect, it is bound to entail trouble and disseution. If the civil service formula is to apply to Democratic appoint ments, to follow it out would take twice four years to dislodge the army of Republican office bolders. Meanwhile, the faithiul and worthy Democrats would be set out ou the curbstone to excite the gibes and jeers of the Republi can office-holding class kept in offlee in per petuity under the operations of a law which has no essence of Democracy in it, aud which, as a matter of fact, ia damned by both parties. It is originated to please the Miss Nancies, and it is the feur of offending this u delectable and perfumed class that its continuance is possible. Meanwhile, indulging the hope that President Cleveland will conform to the law, the Re publicans are preparing the way to get iv under its cloak every one of their officehold ers in Washington. Under tbe syßtctn as now classified it applies ouly to clerkships up to the $1,800 class. All over that, such as chief clerks, heads of divisions, etc., are exempt from its operations, but now comes along Senator Edmunds, who has a scheme concocted to save these. The erudite senator, who is nothing if not partisan, has pointed out a serious defect in the civil service law. The rule referred to exempts from examination and puts outside of the provisions regnlatfafe entry into the civil service among others chiefs of divisions and chief clerks of departments or offices. The question is, by what authority are they exempted? All of these officers may be now discuarged without cause, and their places filled directly from civil life as before the law was passed. As all, or nearly all, now in the service have been gradually pro moted to their present grade on account of experience and fitness for higher trust, they are under this interpretation of the law now enforced, placed in the anomalous position of being subject to and inviting, as it were, immedi ate. (UsminMl for having deserved promo tion. This. Senator Edmunds shjs. attacks the very object of the law to improve the civil service of the United States. The commissioners contend that under provision 8 of section 2 they are empowered, with tbe approval of the president, to ruak-. any necessary exceptions from the eight fundamental provisions of the rules which put it in their power to nullify the intent of the act, and «11 that they are required by the law to do is to give reasons therefor in the ucxt annual report. If one class of employes, whose experience and iitni'ss ought to protect them from re moval except for cause, can be exempted from the intent of the law, another and still another class may be Included in the rule, and thus, Senator Edmonds is quoted as Saying, the object of the law will have been defeated. With an adminis traiion favorable to the letter and to the gpirit of the rules which have the force of luw, it is urged that there is nothing to be feared with one which might find the loop holes convenient. There is, it is said, every promise for evading them. This, it appears ha 6 caused a great flutter among the advocates of tbe civil service re form and hence a stricter and more perfect classification of the en tire clerical force inrf the government employ may be looked for in a few weeks, bo as to include all the subordinate places, clerks and officers in the public service not hitherto classifled and above tbe grade of Daily • (Elnbe. 1 W >^^gy-|g^S^ ' ' *f '. j messeueers and laborers, and rule 19 abro gated «r modified so as to limit exceptions only to those employed in confidential or fiduciary relations.

A Fall Description or the Manner in Which the Man Brown Worked President Kin*. Port Jabvis, N. y!, Nov. 28.— T0-day is a terrible black Friday for Middleton. fitly i rumors were on the streets yesterday. Noth ing could be learned, but it was evident a bi? failure was at hand. Tbe bank has a capital stock of #-.100,000 and a surplus fund of $115,000 The president, Thomas King, was considered one of the ablest financier* of the country, and the bank was looked upon aa one of tbe solidest in the state. No statemeut is yet published Tbe entire capital and surplus is wiped out. President King is at borne completely prostrated. He will make no statement except that all blame was on him. The run on the savings bank quit-ted down when the depositors found all their money forthcoming. The directors announced all demands will be met. The American Loan aud Trust company sent up $30,000 i.ln_ curre,ncj, l^and.^U»e_. First National also helped. Bank Examiner May arrived at noon and this notice was posted: "Tuis bank is in the bands of the national bank examiner. No business will be done except the collection of matured papers. 1 ' All banks in the county have slight balances on collections, the highest bring the High land bank, of New burg. (3,000. AH these will be paid. The comptroller learned in July that Brown had been borrowing largely from the bank and notified the directors that Brown's credit and indebtedness must be reduced at once to a point which should com ply with the law, and the directors did. At the same time President King was notified that luriher credit must not be given Brown. This, it was supposed, was done. But it seems Kinir has given him credit in a private manner as follows: Brown drew time dralts on different parties, with whom be was doing business at various 1 points cast. Accompnning them were bills of lading. Those were sent the Middle ton bank, with instructions tbe bills were uot to be delivered until the draft was Daid. Km:; was in the habit of allowing Brown to take tbe bill of lading to collect, and did not turn over the money he collected, and when the drafts came due the bank had to provide !"r iii<-ui. J King kept a private memorandum of Bruwn's account, and not till he saw ruin staring him in the face did be confess to the directors. This was on Taurs duy Let week. Brown was summoned in promised to secure the bank, but failed. Every effort was made to tide over, but they wire unavailing. Brown's indebtedness Is not positively known, though it will be ov« r ¥50,000. Tin directors says all depositor* and creditors except the stockholders will b« paid in lull. Huston & Conkling, dealers in grain and millers, audC. C. V. Ketcham, wholesale grain dealer, have made an assignment. Both had heavily en dorsed Brown's notes. There are many other losers. Brown is a native of Orange j county, formerly a miller at Buruside. I While here he engaged in wholesale grain J operations. He weut to Indianapolis and buiit hii elevator and later buiit an elevator at Burlington. Brown was on the wrong side of liie market and the recent decline swamped him.
