Hie political Mt'Kitloti during tho
past week has been roplnto with In
teresting ovetits and episodes. The
Panama Canal deal has been the
subject of unfounded charges against
IhogovornmMit'und those nonrly re
lated tothol'residoiit.undof indignant
nnd vindictive eountcrchnnros coinlntr
direct from tho President in tlio sliano
of a moBsago to Congtess and contaln-j
lng throats of libel suits against tho
chief" offender, the editor of tho Now
Congress is writing under tho stinging
lash of tho President charging it with
an effort to choke off or tcotch detec
tlvo activity with regard to lis mem
bers. Somo members of Congress
(like somo of tlio rent of us) would not
caro to have too strong a search ilgh t
tnrned on all their outgoing and in
comings. Tlio Prcs'dont knows who
somo of them aro and ho is poruapi
waiting with somo Imputleiico for tho
National leglslatuo to rhe In lt holy
wrath and ropudiato tlio Insinuation.
Congress, or at least somo Congi cssman
will notpIay with llro for fear of an
explosion. Tlio President is merciless
in his oxposiiro and his denunciation
aud what they have dono in tho closot
ho Is capablo of proclaiming from tho
housetops of their constituencies In a
way Hint all men uud tholr wives will
hear andjbcllove him. It Is a llttlo
short of shameless how somo mombors
and Senators mako the United Stales
treasury pay tholr election oxpenses
and evon bribe their constituents.
Tlio common remark: "Tlioy nil do'lt"
renders It not one whit mofo respec
table or less dishonest.
There nro Navy yards on the New
Englaud coast and on othor coasts
that ara supported by tho United
States for no other reason than that
a Senator or a mombcr of Congr ess
has U3c for them to sustain his polit
ical fortunes by keeping ,him in Con
gress, Theso navy yards aro too
small for modern wnrship construction
tlieroforo useless ships arc appropri
ated for and hundreds of men arc om
ployod and millions of dollars nro paid

political lionch men ofcortaln Senators
Tho lower House of Congress has
just passed a bill for tho noxt Census
with a provision that tlio clerks aro to
selected independent ofv tho Civil
Service competitive examinations.
Every member of Congress hnows that
thisis not in tho inteiest of leonomy
or clllclency Wright and Porter, two
capablo superintendents of the Census
nro on record as regretting that tho
scrvlco under tliem was not included
in tho classified civil seryico examin
ation list. Wright especially, believed
tho cost of the last Census ha3 been in
creased to tho extent of two millions
of dollaih by tho neglect of tho ap
plication or tho Civil Service to tlio
selection of clerks The motives of
Congressmen in relieving tho Census
appointments from tho necessity of
competitive exmaiilnatioii, aro open
tooveryoue. They nro seokingappjliit
monts for their politic il Mip.nrtor-t
or thoirrdativp, their sous, tholr.
wives, cousins, aunts and luothor-in-laws
who aro constantly after them for
hOtno plncont the public crilr ihey
cannot light publicly ngninst the Civil
Servieo law. With the country at
huge it is too popular. It ins ro
deemed a servieo that was scarcely
loss rottou than Chat of Russia or
Clilua. lint they aro desperately
hungry for putrouugo In putting
tho largo body of tho fourth-class
Postmastors undor Civil Scrvlco pro
tection, these oongrossinon havo boon
robbed of much InJlucnco and thoy nro
trying to recoup themselves' through
tho Census Ollleo and at tlio expense
of tlio country at large.
Somo few members of Congress aro
indepondent of patronage. All of
thorn should be. To woll Inform, en
lightened statesmen, patronage is a
curso, It curses him that gives and
him that receives. The person who
gets tlio ollleo is an ingrate and tlio
twenty w-no fail to got it cap bocomo
enemies, llutthonrcrngu congressman
Is not nn enllghtoned statesman; he h
a small politician.
There is still timo for tho Senate to
amond (ho Uouso bill by' inserting u
clauso insisting on competitive ox
nmlnation for tho Ceusus ollljcs ay
poliitmouts. Without such examina
tion, thousands of incompetent per
sons will bo appointed. Moroovcr,
many moro persons than nro necdod
will get ofllces and tho cost-of tho
Census will bo greatly increased by
politicians insisting ou having their
frleuds taken caro of. Tho public
good demands that tho thousands of
porbons to be ojnploycd in taking and
publishing the noxt Cotisus should, bo
appotutotl for elllcloucy and Indepen
dently ol'pollticfil pull? Tho Sonatq
has an opportunity to further estab
lish iUolf in the cQnfldonco'of tho
country by Insisting on nmondlng the
bill ho that the Census Oflice, likoHho
other oflK-oi of the govormuuiit, shall
be flllod with clorks tliostm for their
elllotoncy aud not biHano they need
