The Wilson 1)111 Still Being DUcued mud Still Meeting with Oppitlon in the Democratic Ranks. Washington, Dec. 23. Special.- Bad news comes from the postoffice de partment for an army of democrats throughout the country, who have for some time been expecting their appoint ment to presidential postoffices now held by republicans whose commissions have some time yet to run on account of of their being the second or third re publican appointed to the oifice under the Harrison administration. It was be lieved that under the regime of the spoilsmen the depnrtment would rule that the four years of service intended for a postmaster should date with the first appointment to the office of a re publican by the last administration, and that when the four years of service da ting from the commission of the first republican appointed to the ofiice under the Harrison administration had expired the possessor of it would be removed and a democrat appointed to his place. "Many hundred?, probably 2,000 or 3,000 presidential postoffices, are now in the hands of republicans who were ap pointed to unexpired terms, and it was contended by the democratic senators and representatives and state and county committeemen, demanding removals, that the terms should now be consoli dated so that when the office had been in the hands of republicans four years the incumbent would be crowded out by dismissal. Assistant Postmaster General Maxwell has ruled in the matter of fourth- class postmasters that it is the intention of the law and the department to give a postmaster four years of service if he is efficient and satisfactory from an official point of view, and that removal will not be made of such officer on mere grounds of oflensive partisanship. During the last year of President Harrison's admin istration several hundred presidential postmasters were appointed, and these will have about three years of service ahead of them yet if something more tan gible than offensive partisanship cannot be brought against them. Among the democratic members and senators still in town there is a great deal of deep growling against Postmas ter General Bissell and the president, be cause of their failure to fill some 400 postoffices in all parts of the country which became vacant this month and which were not filled before the senate adjourned. The failure to act in these cases will result in the continuance in office of 400 republican postmasters until the 1st of February and possibly for months beyond that date. If the alleged opponents of the Wilson bill in the democratic party are really in earnest in their opposition to that meas ure, they wili have an early opportunity to test their sincerity. The republican program as now outlined contemplates the introduction of a motion at the close of the general debate to strike out the enacting clause of the measure. If the Halnes-Sherry combination can muster the strength now claimed for it the re sult of their motion will be the prompt defeat of the entire bill. On the other hand, should this motion fail the repub licans refreain from voting fororagatnst any of the amendments offered by the high tariff democrats, and if the demo' calic member;, whose constituents are in favor of protection, except to secure con- cessions for their particular constituents, they will find themselves unsupported by the men who vote for protection, be cause they believe in the principle, and not because they desire to save some particular district in congrss.
