state, that license to sell liquor run
ning beyond the first of the present
month, is of no force and that a new
license will have to be issued under
the requirements and occording to the
provisions of the new law. In many
instances licenses for the entire year
were taken out for the purpose of eva
ding the law as long as possible It
is held that all money paid for license
beyond the first of June is forfeited.
We believe that as yet no one in this
city has made preparations to take
out a license as required by law.

Washington May 31, 1 SSI.
If any city with all its sins and sor
rows can be likened unto &n earthly
Paradise, nature has done well her
part to make this beautiful Capital
I that divinely appointed place. The
strangely long and severe winter
eclinsed all the experiences of the last
half century, but as a merciful com-
jwnsation to-day, parks, lawns, streets
and reservations are robed in wildest
profusion with fresh and multifarious
forms of foliage and bloom, presenting
the mot "attractive combinations of
nature embellished with cultured art
crowning this Capital as the handom
c?t city in the world. The inhabitants
inspired by these lovely environment
enjoy these joyous t-pring days, in
promenade and drives on the avenues
and through tbe parks, making life
here a grand carniv al of joy and satis
faction. The life of a public sen-ant even in
an earthly Paradise, so long as man
has the old Adam in him will not be
unruffled by storms, nor will his couch
be a bed of roses. The experience of
our worthy President has lieen such as
to verify the truth of the old proverb
"all is not gold that glitters." It is
not strange that under our form of
government it should take a little time
for the forces to adjust themselves so
as to work well together under a new
administration. It has been settled
and the country will rejoice to learn
that Mr. Garfield is to be President in
spite of Mr. Conkling or the men who
may sympathize with him in his mad
endeavor to supplant executive au
thority. It will be well for the State
of New York and for the nation, if Mr.
Conkling and Mr. Piatt arc left to pur
sue their private avocations, while
others with less power to manipulate
the old machine are sent as Senator?
from that noble old state. The coun
try has not been treated to the spec
tacle of Senators resigning because
they could not have their own way
since 1SG1, and history would not be
complete withot an occasional exam
ple of this kind. The nation will yet
live, and this childish episode is not
a ripple on the wave of her great and
Twenty years ago the first red blood
of the Rebellion in defense of the
Union was shed in Alexandria by the
gallant soldier Ellsworth. In remov
ing a rebel flag from the top of the
Marshall House, he was shot by Jack
son tiie proprietor, who was immedi
ate shot by Erownwell. From that
day to this the character of that young
man has been maligned by the people
of the South. A History of the Uni
ted States, now in its 12th edition used
in Alexandria and throughout the
South in their schools speaks of Ells
worth as a "Circus rider" and a "Chi
cago rough." The diary of his early
life, now in the hands of an old friend
gives a history of the young soldier as
a law student in Chicago struggling
for an honorable position, living upon
bread and water and sleeping upon
the bare floor of his employer's office.
Even line breathes of a high and hon
orable purpose in life. Many were
the kind words to his aged parents
full of fond hopes for a future that
would shed happiness and comfort
over their declining years. On one
occasion when the burdens and strug
gles of his daily life had grown too
hcavv for his strength, he knelt in
ing letter: "My acquaintance with
him began less than two years ago. I
never heard him utter a profane or in
temperate word. What was more
conclusive of his good heart, he never
forgot his parents. The honors he
laliorcd for so laudably, and in the sad
end so gallantly gave his life, he
meant for them no less than himself.

The following editorial from the
Lincoln Journal sets forth the Conk-ling-Platt
embroglio in what we con
sider iu true hzht, hence we
publish it entire. j
It seems to be beyond the reasoning
power of some of our cotemporanea to j
account for the resignation by Conk- i
ung and Platt of highest office with-
J in the gift of a state. Unless they are
prejudiced, the matter is ea.-y of solu
tion. Tbo-e gentlemen believed the
appointment of Robeittson would de
moralize the party in New York to
such an extent thai the state would be
hopelessly lost for the future Be
licveiug this, they protested to the ut
most of their power and influence
against the appointment, and iu thi
they were joined by the Vicc-Prcsi-dent
and Postmaster General.
In spite of them the appointment
was made. The senators from New
York undertook to defeat the confir
mation, and resorted only to proer
and legitimate means to that end.
The army of busylKxlies, with which
the present administration is so large
ly Riul lamentably afflicted, immedi
ately opened the cry. "Conkling has
declared war on the President." At
the same moment McVeagh, a mem
ber of the cabinet, was intriguing with
the democrats of the senate for the re
jection of Wm. E. Chandi.ee. He suc
ceeded in his object, and nobody ac
cused him of making war. The Presi
dent listened to the insidious counsels
of those who hated Conkling for his
greatness, and he made a remark
about "introductory letters" that will
live in history along with, "to the
victors belongs the spoils." The whole
power of the administration was
brought to bear to confirm Rouf.utvon,
and it was definitely understood that
no Senator who voted against the
wishes of the President should be ever
again able to successfully rcccommend
a friend for office. Under this threat
the unanimous opposition to Robeet
ftON vanished like dew before the sun,
and we had the humiliating specLicle
of the American Senate bending its
neck to receive the collar of slavery to
the lust of patronage.
There was no party principle invol
ved in the struggle. It was a protest
on one side against an appointment
deemed to be not only unfit but fatal
to party policy. On the other it wAs
a determination to liave the appoint
ment confirmed at any sacrifico rath
er than acknowledge the soundness of
When the influence of the "mess of
pottage" policy of the administration
had worked its result, and the confir
mation became evident, the New York
senators resigned. They did not do it
to throw the senate into the hands of
the democrats, for it was in their
hands already so far as the election of
officers and the transaction of busi
ness was concerned. The senators
wished to try the temper of the legis
lature of New York. They placed
themselves in a manly and honorable
position. If they were mi-taken as
to the wishes of the people of New
Y'ork, other men in harmony with the
administration could be sent to Wash
ington. If they were right and the
President wrong, they could be re
turned. Such exhibition of f.tirness
and willingness to be governed by the
people occurs so seldom that it is not
surprising that it is not properly un
derstood. Greed for office has become
such a craze that it is not strange that
men cannot readily comprehend legit
imate TTid honorable reasons for resig
nation. That Conkling and Platt have had
the fair showing in the New York leg
islature that their manly conduct de
served no one will claim. They
should have been allowed a prompt
and full hearing before the only recog
nized partisan tribunal having author
ity the caucus. Instead of that, the
same Lnctics that overrode them at
Washington were omplot-ed here, ex
cept bolder in their unblushing defi
ance of party usage and human de
cency. This is the plain unvarnished story
in as brief a space as it can be out
lined. No man can conider it in the
light of fairness anH honor and not be
imprcssod'm-ith the difFcrence beiween
Conkling and those who undertook to

islature is pitiful. All they want now
