Women as Officeholders-
Washington National Republican:
There is a small class of people dis
posed to carp and object to the em
ployment of women in the public ser
vice. Now that years of trial have
shown the efficiency of these women,
the objectors change their tactics and
object to the promotion of women un
der the civil service rules.
Up to 1S00 there were very few wo
men employed in any of the depart
ments at Washington, or elsewhere in
the public service. At the present
writiug5 out oi about 2,400 employes in
the treasury, 700 are women. About
200 are employed in the pension office,
the postoffice, the war department, the
bureau of engraving and printing, and
the government printing office.
The treasury officials report that wo
men are especially proficient as count
ers of mouej", stamps, etc.
The dead-letter office has a number of
women employed who are remarkably
proficieut. In the census bureau there
were a large number of women, and
(Jen. Walker, the supcriatendeut. bore
testimony to their general lidelity and
efficiency. Th?re is no department in
which the women are employed that
their work will not cjmpare favorably
both in quantity and quality with that
doae by the men.
Many ot these women have onerous
home duties to per too in. Somejof them
before reaching the office, in addition
to the ordiuary work of the breakfast
table, have to give attention to the
children and arrange for all the details
oi domestic duty during the day. Mauy
of the womeu in the departments are
connected with the best families of the
country, northaud south, are highly
educated and cultured, and are favorite
guests at the most elegant and exclus
ive entertainments given in Waelung
ton. In tine, the women clerks have
achieved a success which they well de
serve. Sioux City Journal.
Since the Secrcfaty of the Treasury
ko cleverly disposed of the "assisted
emigrant'' question in his official note
to Officers liohiiisou, we ate probably
at an end f that brunch of the pauper
qu-stioii. There may be authority
under the I'. S. statute, cited by the
Sccrcbiry, b prevent thi ela-s f emi
gration from lauding at Ca-tl; tiarden.

We believe it is a fact th;l in this
respect this country has been more or
less im pobed upon by the English gov
erunieut, in regard to Irish emigration
for years, ami now, since the matter
has attructed such widespread atten
tion, it will fall to the lot of the next
American Congress to take ttrong
"rounds auain.-t the imposition; not
only in our own behalf
but in behalf ot the Irish people who
i;re thus compulsorily driven to leave
their houses and seek protection beneath
the American Hag. .Misrule and ruis
govornrcent, that drive a people from
their native land, are not palliated in
the least bv the tvrants assisting the
oppressed in seeking an asylum from
his despotic rule. Refined oppresion
in the irovernment of a' people is the
very worst of evils, because it is the
hardest to correct. 1 he Euglish rule
over Ireland is utterly selfish and cruel,
whilst it i;: justified by that great na
tion u nder the guise of an enlightened
and constitutional rule.
Widle America has always professed,
and alwavs held, the kindliest feelings
for the oppressed of the old world, our
self interests, since our population has
become so numerous, prompt this gov
ernment to take ample and complete
precautions ngainst an emigration
which would be a burden upon the self-
supporting people ot tins country.
The policy of this government has al
ways been to encourage emigration, but
it is not to our interest to permit our
country to be made an almshouse ior
European paupers who are unable to
take care of themselves. It is self-sup
porting emigrants we need; conse
quent! y.for the government to prohibi,
emphatically, that class of emigrants
being shipped in upon us by England,
or any other European power, should
not and ought not be taken and con
strued by any nation or class as a dis
position on the part of the American
government to check or discourage the
flow of emigration to our shore?.

Tiik writer in our Saturday's Yox
I'opuli uses some rather sharp tacks in
his pointers on the evils aud shortcom
ings of our present revenue system, in
regard to the listing and assessment of
personal "property. Before the Board
of Equalization, the other day, one of
our wealthiest men was heard to make
the startling admission that it was a
fact, that the poor men ot this country
paid the taxes. The HfcitALD wants
right here to say, that there is a heaD
of truth in that frank admission, and
begs leave to suggest that a very great
deal of the shame aud wrong of this
lameutable state of affairs lies, first
with the assessor, and second with the
seared consciences of the wealthy indi
vidual who subscribes to the oath at
tached to his personal list, with the
mental ieservation that he is listing
his properly at as high a valuation as
his neighbor; however, if this perjury
would stop here, there might be some
efficacy in the mental reservation dodge,
but it does not stop; the naked fact Is
that lots of men of means in Nebraska
stand squarely up before the assessor
and refuse to give him the true amount
of their property. This is a statement
that is susceptible of proof in eyeiy
city, town or village in Nebraska. It is
a lamentable state of affairs, and we
fully believe the same state of affairs
existed during our Saviour's existence
on earth, and that it was about this
state of morals he had discovered in
the rich ruler, when He said him,
"For it is easier for a camel to go
"through a needle's eye than for a rich
"uiau to enter into the kingdom of
In other words, we want to be under
stood as laying tin re m'gLt b3 a
small chance for this class of citizens
if they would disclose all their proper
ty when under oath, and tluu swear
down the valuation, but we can't un
derstand hoio they can take that oath
and keep back the property.
The poor man's "little all'' is. in
tight he cannot hide it, the other fellow
has the opportunity to and does hide
it, and therein, lies the difficulty, and it
is a grevlous wrong which ought to be
righted. One other observation the
Herald wants to throw In right here,
is this. The man who lies the ino&t
aud pays the least, will always be
found to be the man who -howls the
loudest "about high taxes.
