A good many democrats who felt incen
sed at the refusal of Hon. John H. Ames
as United States circuit court commis
sioner to entertain the charge of at
tetnped coercion and intimidation pre
ferred againetWater Commissioner Byer,
growing out of the peremptory dismissal
of Freman Kennedy of the water depart
ment for his refusal to support McKinley
have been heard declaring their inten
tion of opposing Mr. Ames' candidacy
for appointment as United States circuit
judge to succeed the late Judge Dundy.
Recent events, however, prove that these
democrats could not do anything that
would operate so greatly to Mr. Ames,
advantage in this contest as to oppose
him on the grounds stated.
There is no question that the action of
the water commissioner was cowardly
and despicable, and in direct : violation
of the federal statute for the prevention
and punishment of (attempt to coerce
and intimidate voters, but such acts of
political tryanny are but the outgrowth
of modern political methods. Lincoln
is bo unfortunate as to be burdened with
a republican administratfon, and it is
but natural, perhaps, that the admin
istration should use the full power of the
city government to ; further the suc
cess of the republican party. Custom,
which too often ignores and discedits
laws specifically enacted, prescribes that
the man who holds office under a repub
lican adminstration must show himself
to be a republican or get out of the of
fice. This custom is the rock of Gibral
tar upon which. Water Commissioner
Byer builds his fabric of justification for
the removal of Fireman Kennedy, and it
is doubtless upon this ground that
United States Court Commissioner Ames
declined to entertain acoroplaint against
Mr. Byer under the federal statutes.
It the electric light of the most search
ing investigation - were turned upon Mr.
Ames' course in this matter and the facts
were made plain to the administration,
they would not in the least embarrass
Mr. Ames' candidacy for the federal
judgship. One would at first blush sup
pose that a man who would excuse or
. wink at a violation, even in spirit, of
federal law, could for a moment be seri
ously considered as a fit and likely can
didate for a federal judgship, but the
truth is, that under existing conditions
nothing would so seriously operate to
Mr. Ames' advantage in his race for the
judgship as to have full knowledge of his
acts in this matter brought to the atten
tion of the administration. This can be
aid without any design to reflect un
justly upon the national administra
tion. It would doubtless be tacitly ac
knowledged by the administration, but
if it were not one would not have to
search history further back than the
telegram of this morning to prove it.
Theprees dispatches snow that Presi
dent Cleveland has inaugurated a crus
ade against federal clerks who has been
taking an active interest in the recent
election in sympathy with the democracy.
Eight of them have been released since

Judge Fleming, Mr. Adams "and Miss
McMillan were friends of Senator Black
burn of Kentucky and were active in
the Blackburn-Carlisle contest for the
Kentucky senatorship, and Byan was a
free silver candidate for congress in the
Rochester district in New York.
In his contest for the judgeship Mr.
Ames ought to bear down hard upon his
record in the Byer episode. It will ap
peal to the bigotry of the appointing
power. No certificate of good character
or legal ability that could be presented
could be relied upon to have so much
force and effect. His ri vais for the ap
pointment are Judge Crawford of West
Point, A. J. Sawyer of this city, and T.
J. Mahoney, Frank Irvine, W, D. Mc
Hugh and C. S. Montgomery, all of

special recommendations, but Mr. Ames,

tickle the fancy of the goldbug presi

IT SUITS MEXICO
Oold Monometallism in the United States
Means the Prosperity, of Mexico.
City of Mexico, Nov. 6. No previous
presidential election in the United State
has created such excitement and interest
among all classes as the present one for
business men. Bankers and manufac
turers felt that Mexican interests de
manded the election of McKinley, The
Mexican Herald says:
"For Mexico the declaration ol tne
American people in favor of the gold
standard means continued prosperity
here. It signifies large dividends for our
mills and banks thus earn ing into et-
feet many large and important under
takings for which capital would not
have been obtained in the United States
had Bryan been elected. The result is
for the general good of Mexico.

Nothing could be fairer, more philan

than the offer of T. A. Slocum, M. C, of
183 Pearl street, New York City.

absolute cure for consumption and all
pulmonary complaints, and to make its
great merits known, he will send, free,

Already this "new scientific course of
medicine" has permanently cured thou

The Doctor considers it his religious
duty a duty which he owes to human

Offered freely, apart from its inherent
strength, is enough to commend it, and
more so is the perfect confidence of the
great chemist making the proposition.
Ho has proved consumption to be a
curable disease beyond any doubt.
There will be no mistake in sending
the mistake will be in overlooking the
generous invitation. He has on file in

The result ot the election has shown

try. Whatever the republicans may asy
and no matter how the democrat

populist National convention. Had
there been a real spirit of fusion amon;r

all his opportunities. There is little no
in crying over spilt milk. Mr. Bryan
displayed true genius in dealing with the
complication, but even he cou'd not eel

to whom belongs the credit of the rote I
