He appoints a master, to mount his
back, and with whip and spur goad
him on to do his will and satiate his

When we see so much about Con-
kling's bad temper and dictation, and
hear so many (Blaine m n) d n Con
kling, it may be as well to at least
read the opinion of an independent
witness in the matter. The X. Y. Sun
correspondent who spares no one has
this to say of the preent situation:
To Conkling perhaps more than to
any one man Garfield owed his elec
tion. In his party Conkling is trusted
by all, and is the idol of many. In the
Senate no man of his party seems to
become his rival as a Senator or states
man. On the Senate floor if he is not
loved he is respected, and his place as
one or me leaumg senators in tiie na
tion is not questioned. Between him
and Garfield there could honorably be
no rivalry. .Garfield is great by vir
tue of being the official head of fifty
millions of people. Conkling is great
by nature and by his acknowledged
leadership. The people conceded to
each his place, and saw no cause for
rivalry. But Garfield was seized with
a fit of Presidential foolishness, and
struck at Conkling to bring hirn down.
He believed Conkling's position as
leader could be broken, and that the
people at large couiu ue maue to es
teem him less. The blow struck was
by an appointment the most offensive
that could be made to the Senator.
Now what must the result?
The dead lock in the senate is at
last in a fair way to be broken. A cau
cus was decided upon last week by a
majority- of the Republicans although
on Tuesday there had been no definite
action. Telegrams from Washington
of May 3 leaves Mie caucus still in
Washington, May 3. All promi
nent republicans attended the caucus
this morning. They desire to deter
mine what are contested and what are
uncontested nominations. Adminis
tration senators maintained the ad
verse report of a committee should
c nstitute con tested nominations
Senator Conkling and friends held
that objection by one senator from the
state in which the nomination belongs
made it contested. This uoitit was
not settled. Senator Conkling was
conspicuously pleasant to-day, which
many regarded as a proof that he was
satisfied with the situation.

iilE N. . -JSUN'S OPINION OF THE
"1 be Composite Cabinet.
Washington, Apiil 21. The pres
ent Cabinet cannot stand long, because
it has no elements of cohesion, and is
unequal to its responsibility. . The
original programme was broken up,
and but two of that cast, Blaine and
'Lincoln, are members of the Adminis
tration. The other live were picked
up, like, the guests at the
marriage feast in holy writ, from the
highways and byways a Washington,
after the President reached the Capi
tol with "everything settled in his
Windom, MacVeagh, James, Kirk
wood, and Hunt grew out of the per
plexities of the situation caused iu
part by the refusal of Allison to go in
to the Treasury, after having accepted
it ou the od of March, and by the en
forced declination of the Navy by
Morton at the instance of the New
Jealousies and little rivalries in
Indiana shut that State out of the
Cabinet, tor if they had consented to
take Judge Gresham when he was
offered to the members of Congress on
tne 4th of March, the Treasury or the
Interior would now be in his hands.
They wanted sume smooth nose of
wax, and lost their chance.
These refusals brought in Windom,
James, Hunt, and Kirk wood. Mac
Veagh came in by accident. President
Hinsdale of Hiram College, who wa3
a very willing witness, with a remark
able memory, for Garfield, in regard to
the Credit Mobilier jobbery, states that
the Cabinet was made up before the
President left Mentor, and he recites
the names as given to him there. His
memory has taken a new freak, or
he is gifted with a fertile imagination.
Mr. Hinsdale is entirely too "unani
mous" for Garfield, to be accepted as
authority about matters of which he
ia wholly ignorant.
There are family jars not easy to be
reconciled. Windom became Secretary
of the Treasury, against Blaine's de
cided opposition, which was only
abandoned when Allison's courage
oozed out at the fingers ends, and lie
recalled an acceptance within six or
eight hours after it had been given in
person to the President.
James is charged to Conkling s ac
count, although the Senator did not
recommend him, and was not consult
ed about his appointment, nor would
he have advised it had he been asked.
After Leing lifted into the Post Office
Department, James gushed out in a

more of the homeless have been mov-'

be kept comfortable at least for a
time, and until better quarters can be
provided. The damage to property
is immense, though nothing like a

into hundreds of thousands of dollars.

PAVING HIE WAY FOIl AN EXECUTIVE
Washington, April 'JO. The Re
publican caucus committee are work
ing to perfect a programme, to govern
the executive session that will receive
the unanimous support of Republicans
and prevent taking up any nomina
tion question calculated to cause anv
division on that side. It is likelv the
plan will be to let a committee have
control of all executive business, and
not to take up any except what the
committee recommends. While Conk
ung may object to sucu an arrange
ment it is claimed that the majority of
the caucus will vote for it
Senator Sherman is opposing the
confirmation of .Sheldon for Governor
of New Mexico. Sheldon apparently
has a majority to support him. Hi
friends insist on confirming him at
once, but if his case shall be broughc
up it is said Conkling 'ill claim that.
this would be bringing up a contested
case, and that he would insist on the
rules for hints !f to bring one of that
kind. Sheldon was an Ohio delegate
to the Chicago convention, and op
posed Sherman's nomination.
The caucus committee feel confi
dent of their ability to arrange every
thing so r3 to work iu smoothness
and perfect harmony among Repub
licans, so that they can resume the
fight for majority rule with an tin
broken front. The committee called
upon and informed the president that
Senator Conkling had given them to
understand that he (Conkling) cared
nothing for the continuance of the
deadlock on his own account, but had
prolonged it as far as the New York
collectorship question was enncerued
merely in deference to the wishes of
New York constituents, who believed
the delay would result in the with
drawal of Judge Robertson's nomina
tion, which they earnestly desired
in the interests of party harmony.
The committee thereupon asked the
president whether it would be embar
assing to him to withdraw the nom
inrtion, and have all the rest of the
nominations promptly confirmed.
President Garfield in reply said, with
emphasis, that no such proposition
could be entertained, and thus the
