Wo havo doubted and hoped that
President Oarllold di'd not niako the
contemptible remark attributed to him
that Senators who dared to exorcise
their sworn constitutional duty in con
firmations, antagonistic to his nomina
tions, would require letters of intro
duction to him afterward. And al
though referred to as a brilliant and
statesmau-liko utterance, by ono of his
ardent supporters, still wo aro loth to
boliovo that ho has not been misrepre
sented; for with our exulted opinion of
Garfield as a statesman of stalwart
American ideas', who would detest a
usui'iHjr and scoin a bulldozer, wo will
not believe ho has shrunk himself to
tho narrow compass of both without
tho most positive proo. It is tho duty
of the President to nominate, and it is
equally tho duty of the Senate to re
ject if they beliovo tho public sorvico
will bo conserved thereby, and tho
'resident beinc fully informed and
educated on tlieso two distinctive
duties, it is revolting to think of him
in tho altitude of a bolligcrent holding
a club over the heads of Senators and
threatening to let it fall if they do not
vote to confirm his nominations. No,
we think the Reporter is peddling an
outrageous slander on the President.

Wo do not doubt the staunchness of

any sane man doubt tho popularity anil
power of the "haughty autocrat" iu
Now York. Garfield was elected for
the purpose of not only making a good
executive olllcers but at tlio samo timo
conserving tho Republican party. If
his Now York policy shall prove that
the party in that stato has been
strengthened instead of weakened,
then there will be some sense in talk
ing about backbone. But if his New
York policy shall prove disastrous to
Republicanism in Now York, tlio mag
nitude and rigidity of his spinal column,
will but add to his discomfiture when
ho instead of the "autocrat" shall read
thatjliand writing on the wall. Tho
party is of vastly moro importance
than spinal columns or autocrats.

more birds than ho had the week be

the marksmanship of tho Nebraska

pigeons are very fond of home.
