A strenuous effort is being made to
create the impression that a clean sweep
of postmasters has already begun. Ir
responsible gosip as to the intentions of
the president and the postmaster-general
is caught up on all quarters, and set
forth in the opposition newspapers.
Every removal is described as being
made for partisan reasons, and whenever
a postmaster's head falls in the basket
through the representations of the con
gressman from the district it is reprented
that the president has fully surrendered
to the theory of congressional control of
Mr. Clarkson, the first assistant postmaster-general,
has male an important
statement upon this matter. It appears
that practicall all the changes made thus
far have been for other than political
reasons. A number were of postmasters
who were delinquent in their accounts;
others of men appointed by the last ad
ministration who were notoriously unfit;
in many cases appointments were made
in order to remove the offices from the
vicinity of saloons. There has been no
removal, Mr. Clarkson says, without
good and sufficient cause. He further
directs attention to a significant and in
teresting fact which the public will
doubtless learn for the first time. It is
that during the last four or tig: weeks of
the outgoing administration more than
1,000 fourth-class postmasters were ap
pointed, in the hope, apparently, that
they could thus be forced upon the new
administration. Mr. '-CUrksoo un"
doubtedly correct in saying that no suuh
course was ever pursued by any previous
administration. During tho closing
weeks of President Arthur's term not
one fourth-class postmaster was appoint
ed except where necessities of the serttce
required it, and when the department
was turned over to the democratic postmaster-general
there wera more than
3,000 resignations of postmasters oa file.
It is gratifying to know that the com
missioners of these 1,000 later day ap
pointees of Mr. Dickinson wera unheld,
and that the filling of these vacancies
with others is part of the work that is
occupying the first assistant postmaster
general. The sentiment of our people
has always been againat these last grabs
at offices eince the day of John Adam's
"midnight appointments." Demoraliza
tion of the postal service in order to
give places to a great army of hunry and
thirsty democrats was one of the chief
civil service scandals of the last admin
istration. That final effort to clutch a
thousand postoffices, long after the peo
ple had given it notice to quit, was a
forcible illustration of the ruling passion
strong in death. New Yoik Tribune.
IMPROVEMENT IN BUSINESS
Within the pist few weeks two things
occurrfd without creating scarcely flurry
in the financial world which, had they
id Ken piace niccen or twenty years ago
would have caused widespread busines
disaster. One of these was the suspen
sion oi woric on tne i'anama canal and
tne oiner was tne couapse ot toe copper
ring. Both these projects, too, bad their
principal support in the same country
France and yet the ruin which kas over
taken both within a few weeks of each
othr has not, even in that country,
created anything which can be dignified
by the name of financial crisis. There
was a tremor on the French bourses, and
prices of some securities went down a
few points. " Comparatively speaking
however, the effect was not felt outside
of France, and in France it was virtually
confined to the properties immediately
we see in tne comparative narrowness
of the area of disturbances caused by the
failure of the canal and copper enter
prises one of the beneficial effects of the
improvement in business methods which
lias come into vogue within the past two
decades. Speculation in many commod
ities is still carried on, of ccurse, and
always will be, but it is neither to gen
oral nor so reckless as it was once. Busl
- oess credits, too, are shorter, and ate
governed with more discrimination than
was the case formerly. In fact, trade of
all sorts is conducted more conservatively
and safely than it was at any time in the
past. As a consequence the confi
ience of the business community
is &o so easily disturbed as it
used to be, and the dangers of panics are
proportionally lessened. The so-called
J - .v.. a 1
he nation is greater than ever before.
The commercial ties which bind one
country with every oiher are more nu
merous and intimate than they were even
up to a dozen years ago. Yet financial
wrecks' which at ono time wou'd have
shaken every bourse in Christendom are
now felt in the area covered by tho en
terprises immediately concerned oDly,
and even in that area the disaster is
neither so great nor so lasting as would
have been produced in the past. Qlobe
The fact that a number of British cap
italists are about to form a syndicate,
with $500,000,000 capital, to control all
the coal mines in England, is taking
away the breath of the American free
trade editors. When Mr. Blaine, about
eight months ago, said that England was
plastered all over with trusts, the demo
crats declared that the statement wss
false. They have found out since then,
however, that the Maine stateman's utter
ance was true, although few . of them
have the honesty to acknowledge it. The
fact is the trust scheme is one of the
forms of the combination and aggrega
tion spirit which is manifesting itself
in nearly every productive enterprise, in
all countries, free trade as well as pro
The editors whom President Harrison
has selected to represent this country in
foreign courts are probably better jour
nalists than Benjamin Franklin was, but
if thev should turn out to be half as
good diplomates as Ben, the country
would have no cause to complain.

frain from eating meat or eggs at iaster
and on ptl)er festivals, or carry about a
piece pi human bone, pr pluck and eat
the first daisy found in 'the field. If
fever had been contracted the best'eurs
was for the sufferer to rise early in the
morning and go out into the fields, walk
ing backwards all the time, pluck a
iiandful of herbs, throw it behind him
without Jookf eg t it, and then go home
as fast as ho .could. The fever would
then leave him and attack Jhe' devif in

aim in particular prevented pleurisy.

As the glass rod remains cold, it can be

Let us put two and two together; Jo
seph Chamberlain has an American
biiJe. Gen. Boulanger was once
charmed by a young woman whose
homo is in St. Louis, and rumor has it
that his motive in seeking a divorce is to
secure an American bride. Mr. Cham
berlain said wlulo in Scotland the other
day that the common 6chool system is
the glory of tho United States, and he
suggested free schools for Ireland. Gen.
Boulanger has within a week spoken in
tho lughest terms of "that splendid fab
ric, tho American constitution. He
furthermore said that he first learned
miu irue meaning of the w ord liberty in
America. Of course any ono is at lib
erty to draw conclusions and it seems to
us that Gen. Boulanger has been brought
under the influence of a fair American
dictator, and that Joseph Chamberlain
has taken his first lesson in home rule.

IN JAIL AT CAMDEN.
I have nothing in particular against
the town of Camden except that it lies
opposite Philadelphia. The railroad de
pot is on the wharf, where the nicest
view can be obtained of the golden hued
waters of the harbor, and where the
odors stirred up by paddle wheels come
to the nose before any of their original
freshness has been lost on the summer
breezes. The waiting room was erected
for the convenience of those who have to
wait. Everybody has to wait in Cam
den. If they didn't have to wait, why
have a waiting room?
I was waiting there one day last sum
mer, and after putting in two hours at iV
had just commenced to study the won
derful architecture of six New Jersey
apples spread out in a reckless fashion
on a news stand, when I observed a man
sizing me up. It was his bounden duty,
as a good citizen of New Jersey, to ascer
tain whether I was a pirate looking to
capture one of the big ferryboats, or only
a humble citizen making a quiet sneak
down to Atlantic City. I saw him slyly
comparing my height, weight, dress,
pplor of eyes, etc., with memoranda in
a book, and I felt that I was a goner.
The wicked may dodge the lasso handled
by Nemesis now and then, but the loop
is certain to fall sooner or later. I had
eluded all the officers between Detroit
and Camden, and was wearing my hat
on my ear and feejjn$ pu? UP bufc lo'
Nemesis was here. ' ' ' ' '
My first thought was to walk over to
the stranger and surrender myself and
go to the gallows without a complaint,
but my second was to get away and
hunt for fresh fields of crime and shed
more blood. ' I had two hours tq spare,
and while the man seemed to' be 'asking
the price of a dime novel I slipped
aboard a ferry boat. The craft had only
started yshen f discovered the man be
side me. We crossed over' fa Philadel
phia and returned on the same boat.
Onoe I thought of ending it all and find
ing rest beneath the tan bark waves of
the historic river, but I hated to get
wet and therefore abandoned the idea.
When the boat suddenly brought up
in 'Camden I made a rush, for a street
car. I didn't know whether the car ran
to a coal mine in the center of the town,
or out into the country where stumps,
haystacks and brush heaps would give
me a show for my life, but I took it. So
did the strange man. Why he did no
put the handcuffs and shackles on me at
once, ana observe tnat 1 had run my
race, I couldn't understand. Perhaps he
was uot 3iJFe of ray identity. Perhaps
he wanted to prolong my torture.
He looked out of the window on his
right and seemed to be thinking of the
past and gone. I looked out of the win
dow on my 'eft nd was certainly think
ing of the days and nights, to come.
When we had gone about a mile he sud
denly rang the bell. You stop a Camden
stivct car that way, samo as In Detroit
or DalTalo. When tho pair of mules had
coruc to a dead standstill the stranger
brushed las eoattail aside i:i a graceful
way. showed mo tho Liend of a big re
volver and gently remarked:
'Nov cqmo along without any non
sense t You know me and I know you!"
If re was a point for dispute, but 1
didn't accept it just then. You can al
ways get along better with a stranger by
seeming to let him have his'own way.
I didn't even protest against leaving the
car at his dictation. After a man has
been in the army five years he is ready
to take orders from any one. When we
descended from the car he took me by
the right arm. This, was very kind in
him, as I might have fallen down.
In front of us was a structure labeled
"Police Station." It evidently had some
thing to do witff the Camden police. I
didn't care about going in, as I had seen
the interior of so many others; but the
man tightened his grip and I did not dis
appoint him- lie walked-me up to the
sergeant's desk, heaved a sigh of relief,
and fanned himself with his hat as he
"Well, I've got him.'
"Hanged if you haven't," replied the
sergeant. "Say, Bill, tins is a stroke of
"I guess so." guessed Bill.
"Call the captain."
Tho captain was playing euchre in the
next room.; j.ie pamoout at. the call,
brightened up at the sight pf me, and
waved his hand and said:
"Good! Search him and lock liim up
in No. 4."
Wliats tne charger asseu Hie ser
geant as he lifted his pen.
"Obtaining money under false pre
tenses. We'd better telegraph Red Bank
that we've got him."
The captain disappeared to see about
the telegraphing, and the detective be
gan to search me. He came across my
name on cards, envelopes, collar and
cuffs and pockets, and before I was half
searched lie began to look anxious.
'Sailing under stil) another name, ain't
yon?" he queried,
"It's the only name I ever had."
"And you claim to be this man?" he
demanded, holding up one of my cards.
"And what are you doing, here in
"On my way down to Atlantic city."
"And do you know any one hero or in
"About twenty people, I guess."
He stood off and looked at mo with an
expression of mingled disgust and anx
iety, but tho sorgeant braced him up
"He's giving you a stiff. Bill. Don't
let him scare you!"
Bill braced up, completed the search,
and I was locked up in a very roomy
and well bred cell. The furniture was
ancient, but combined art and conve
nience, and the hangings and mount
ings were all that could be expected of
a small town. I whiled away an hour,
and then four or five men came rushing
in upon me. They began to abuse each
other and apologized to me before they
trot the door open, and when they led
mo out it wa3 to the captain's room.
"Say, old fellow, can you ever for
give us?" gasped the captain as he put
his arms around my neck.
"If ho won't, then I might as well
shoot my head off!" added the detective.
"He must forgive us indeed, ho must!"
finished the sergeant.
"Gentlemen, you seem perturbed," I
observed. "ILv anything gone wrong
in this case?"
"Oh! como off!" replied the captain.
"We como right down from the limb. It
was all a mistake, and we'll stand on our
heads all tho rest of the week if you say
so. Why in blazes didn't you talk deny
it claim a mistake?"
"And be told to shut up for my pains!
How did you find out your mistake?" ;
"They got the right man up the road,
and the hotel keeper hero identified you
as you came along. Say, what'U you
"Twenty thousand dollars damages
"Then tho three of us will commit sui- j
cide! Say a basket of wine and five j
boxes of good cigars. That'll bankrupt
the trio of us, but we've got to suffer."
I let 'em off at that, and they were so
glad that I didn't get out of town until
the next day. Folks ought to be careful
how they seize strangers and walk 'em
around and feel in their pockets, but
strangers shouldn't be mean about it

A minute later a nasal twang was
heard on the air calling, "Sis, sis, say,
