THE DOCTRINE OF PEACE.
An Appointee Sbould be Acceptable
to Patrons.
New York Post.
The principle that no man shall be
named for postmaster who is objec
tionable to the patrons 01 the office
ought to be the fundamental one in
the consideration of the applicants
for th& position. It makes no differ
ence whether the objection to an
aspirant is based on his color or his
race, his extreme youth or his great
age, his reputation or his temper; the
fact that he is disliked by most ot
the people who must have relations
with the postmaster, should dispose
of bis ease. It is the most astonish
ing feature of the craze for office that
a man sbould be so anxious for a
place that he will take it when he
knows that the people whom he must
serve hate him. The rule wnicn
ought to govern in this matter of
borne postomces is the same which
governs as to places in tbe foreign
service that the appointee shall
always be persona grata to the peo
ple to whom he is accredited. The
Mi'Kinlpy administration has just
had a consul to Cologne, Germany,
turned back upon it because the ap
pointee was offensive to the German
government. Every postmaster who
is offensive to the community which
he must serve ought also to be
turned back upon it or, better still.
nobody should be appointed, either
abroad or at home, who Is not
wanted in the place for which he is
named.

WORN BY MODISH WOMEN.
Fashions Which Will Be in High
Favor Dating This Season.
Philadelphia Record.
Knife plaiting has pushed the erst
while ubiquitous accordion plaiting
quite to the wall and will be ex
clusively used this season for frill
ings.
The feminine mind is pretty well
assured by this time as to what shall
be the smartest fashions in crowns.
coats and hats this winter, and the
modish girl has resolved to have her
gown much trimmod, her hat much
bfeathered and her jacket a fly front
or a Russian blouse.
Tusked yokes and fronts are much
used for waists, applique figures cut
out of ecru lace and put on either
colored or black silk are very effec
tive for these styles. Three waists
made for one of our leading society
belles were cut square neck and front
and filled with plaited chiffon, fancy
velvet and guipure lace.
Women with flat figures will find
the little knife-plaited or gathered
frills used so much nowadays, more
becoming if put on crosswise, while
the short-waisted, stout one will do
well to have band trimmings put on
lengthwise. The slender woman may
wear a soft, crumpled girdle, while
the stout one must have hers
pointed in front, boned and fitted.
The garnitures for dresses are

Can't Gather Fl from Thistles.
Raleigh Xews and Observer.
List year when the air was full o
promises of reform by the gang tha
is now mismanaging the State, thi
paper warned the people that th
very evils that have come upon them
would necessarily follow the return
of the Republican party to power.
The scandal and public disgrace have
come out sooner than we expected.
Now that the Populists see the re
sult of their co-operation, thoe who
are not Republicans at heart will
come out irom among the Fusionists,
join their old neighbors in making a
manly, determined and straight
from -the shoulder fight to redeem
the State from the disgraceful rule
that now makes every honest citizen
hang his head in shame. Those who
expected clean government from Re
publicans and men who allied th m
selves with them now see that "yon
cannot gather figs from thistles."
The duty of honest men who have
been deceived is plain. They must
return to the old home, put on the
old armor which many of them wore
when tbe State was redeemed in
1876, and fight once again to restore
white supremacy.
