OXK of the greatest trials of the
newspaper profession is that its mem
bers are compelled to see more of the
shams of the world than any othci
profession. Through ever newspape
olficc , day after day , go all the weak
ness of the world ; all vanities that
want to be pufi'ed , all the revenges
that want to be reaped , all the mis
takes that -want to be corrected , all
the dull speakers who want to be
thought eloquent , all the meanness
that wants to get its waves noticed
gratis in the editorial columns .in
order to save the t x of the advertis
ing columns , all the men who want
to be set right who were never right ,
all the cracked brained philosopher
with stories as long as their hair , and
as gloomy as their fingernails in
mourning bereft of soap. Through
the editorial and reportorial rooms all
the follies and shams of the world are
sex'ii day after day , and the temptation
is to believe in neither God , man nor
woman. It is no surprise t ( * me that
in this profession there are some skep
tical men , . ! only wonder that journal
ists believe anything. De AYitt Tal-

Correspondence Solicited ,
proud to beg and too coivardly to ateul
after dark , we can safely commend : i
new industry , or rather an old industry
newly resumed in Washington. One-
branch of the pursuit requires capita ]
enough to deposit with a credulous aud
coufiding banker from whom u note or
due bill.is received covering the amount
deposited , agaiust which checks may be
drawn until it is exhausted , after which
there is nothing in the way of transfer
ring the banker's paper and realizing
from some other credulous and confiding
friend the full face thereof. Well fol
lowed this branch of business is ex-
ticmely profitable , but no more i-o than
another branch which involves the
harmless negotiation of the pay accounts
of army and navy officers , which the
Government is only too willing to pay
when in duplicate or even triplicate if
they are only accompanied by the requi
site vouching apparatus. Of course
this style of making money is a little
more contemptible than thimble-rigging ,
but if one gets rich by "it , who is going
to ask how one got there ?
THE pleuro-pneumonia bill passed
by the senate a day or two ago deserves
attention. It provides for the establish
ment of a bureau of animal industry
within the bureau of agriculture , and to
which the collection of statistics and in
formation regarding the breeding of
live stock in the country is tc oe "in-
trusted. The chief of the bureau shall
be competent veterinary surgeon , who
is to investigate and report upon the
existence and course of contagious and
infectious diseases among domestic ani
mals. ' He is to have $ . ' 1,000 a year.
Tho. rest of the bureau is to conbist of
twenty men. Two of these are to be
iractical stock raisers and they are to
report upon the best methods of trans-
jorting stock , and of curing or prevent
ing pleuro-pneumonia , or other danger
ous diseases. They are to have $10 a
day while employed. The bureau is to
prepare and issue directions for the cure
of cattle diseases and request the execu
tive of each state to assist in stamping
out such maladies. Special provision
s made for ascertaining the presence of
disease in cattle likely to be shipped
ibroad. Quarantines are to be establish
ed wherever needed , and for this pur-
) ese special appropiations are set apart.
The exportation of cattle effected with
contagious -diseases is to be prevented
) y the interference ot the secretary of
the treasury , who is to be informed of
such exportations by the chief of the
jureau. Transportation companies are
also forbidden to convey such cattle
Tom one state to another , under a pen
alty of $ f,000 , or a year's imprison
ment , or both. United States district
ittorneys. are enjoined to prevent such
cases. The appropriation is $150,000 ,
to which the senate in a fit of unaccount
able economy , reduced the $250,000
set apart by the house. Bee.
A DELEUATIOX of WOlllCU from 0110
of the churches waited upon Rugg. the
man convicted of the Maybee murders ,
on Long Island , the other day , and sang
ind prayed in his cell. A number of
adies also carried flowers to the con
demned man. This , too , in the light of
the fact that Bugg's victims were two
defenceless women , whom he murdered
in the coldest blood. A convicted niilr-
derer , when awaiting execution , should
ic treated decently , but the attention he
receives should come from prison offi
cials and the clergy. There is a grow
ing tendency on the part of a certain
class of American women to gush over
notorious characters , even though their
notorietynvas gained through the perpe
tration of the most heinous crimes , and
it is high time that it was stopped. The
practice tends to make heroes of the
blackest villains and puts a premium on

WASHINGTON LETTER ! .
Washington , D. O , May 4,1884 ? ,
The bare thought that such a man as
George F. Edmunds-may be likely to-
enter the Presidential campaign as- the
nominee of the Republicans , , makes the
politicians shake-hi their shocks. Wheth
er you know it or not , I can say to you
that he is the last man in the party
that the office-holders wunt to see in
the White House. Mr. Edmunds is a
man who , if he knows all the tricks m
trade of politicians , will not adapt him
self to them , aud will not he counted
in as a participant in any of * the ways
that are dark , 0which are to be expected
of the average politician. But like
Blainc and Lincoln and Tildcu and the
rest of them , Edmunds is not a candi
date ! 01' course not. JJlaine is no candi
date , but he has got magnetism , and
magnetism is running his campaign on
its own hook. Lincoln is not a candi
date , but the very children are crying
for him because his name is Liucolu.
and therefore he unconsciously falls iuto
the hands of his friends. Logan is not
a. candidate in hcordinary acceptation
of tli word , but homebody has been
migliiy lively of late in working up u
stub and twist boom , with Fitx John
Porter at one end , and the G. A. II. ,
at the other. Nor is Mr. Tilden a candi
date ; if he were , you would not hear
of thepe politicians visiting Gramcrcy
Park in squads , companies and battal
ions. And what in the world would
Mr. Randall and Mr. Ilendrioks and
Mr. Morrison and Mr. Cox and the
other prominent shepherds in the
Democratic fold , he calling upon the
Sage for if it were not to get his disin
terested advice and Deceive his Demo
cratic benedictions ? The o ly thing
absolutely positive about Mr. Edmunds'
candidacy is his own declaration one
day that he was not a candidate , and
the next going upon a still-hunt for a
nomination. Such is politics I
And what a power there is behind a
politician after hegets up-among the
high muak-a-mucks of the party ! Here
is Sabin , of Minnesota , who was never
heard of until last fall , furnishing to the
country a successor to Knox , Comptrol
ler of the Currency , in the person or. '
another man who was never heard of or
heard from , although his name is Can
non. The responsibility that attaches
to this office of Comptroller is simply
immeasurable , and the men arc few who
possess the requisite capacity for a
discharge of the vastly important trusts
involved in it. Mr.
. Cannon may be a
most excellent man forthepositionbut
the business men of the country , and
particularly the men who run the Na
tional banks , would much prefer to
know something of the man who is to
boss the finances of this great Nation.
It must be that Julius Ctcsar Bur
rows , of Michigan , has got a sure thing
for the next Congress , or he never
could have refused the Solicitorship of
the Treasury , which the President has
been urging upon him. The office has
been vacant since the death of Mr. Ray-
nor , and , strange to say , the country
had really forgotten that there was such
an office. Now the Solicitor of the
Treasury is nothing more nor nothing *
less than the legal adviser of the offi
cials in the Treasury Department , at the
head of which 'is tli3 ex-Chief-Justice
of the highest judicial tribunal in the
State of New York , who would hardly
think of asking the advice of-a third
rate lawyer as to his duties , and if he
did , would never act upon it. There
are law officials connected with each of
the departments , and who are called
Assistant Attorney Generals , who are
selected for these places seemingly be
cause they will not fit in anywhere else.
They are as incapable of solving a prob
lem involving a legal principle , as the
man who drives their carriages at Gov
ernment expense. And more than that ,
their decisions upon questions involving
a construction of law , such as are always
arising in the Pension Bureau , and tne
Land Office , are as a rule too farcial
for any'use. It would be money in the
pocket of the Government to pay these
fellows their salary , and let them dis
tribute ancient seeds from the.Agricul-
tural Department. '
