Washington , D. C. , May 25,1SS4-
A leading Republican official , who
expects to be in Logan's cabinet
after the 4th of next March , said to
day that if he was President , having
200 delegates at his back , ho would
do swapping enough to get the
remaining 211 or dish out "his pit-
ronage somewhere else. Now if this
is not a strange and a strong commen
tary upon the weakness of Arthur's
administration , I don't know where
to look for the other proof. With
150,000 well fed office-holders at his
beck and call , and this grand army
so distributed throughout the conntry
as to spring to the breach at every
local convention in every State , coun
ty , town and school district , it passes
all understanding that he should be
out-generaled in every single State ,
his own included. The goody-goody
esolutious that have marked the
action of these conventions , and which
pat Mr. Arthur on the back , are
simply the heartlessness of politics
, hcy mean simply an invitation to
Mr. Arthur to stand aside with his
patronage and give the rest of the
fellows a chance.
Just as I expected. The railroad
and grant lobby have been getting
n their work to some purpose. The
House Judiciary Committee report
; hat Congress has no legal right to
leclare the forfeiture of any of these
rants , because such action would
be in violation of the provisions of
he Constitution that prohibits the im
pairment of contracts ! Here is a coin-
any to which was granted one and
half millions of acres of the public
domain , on condition that the road
hould be completed and in operation
.vithin . five years. This company not
only did not complete their road , but
they never even began its construc
tion. After waiting four years with
out lifting a hand toward , fulfilling ,
its part of the contract the company ,
with an audacity worthy only of a
soulless corporation , attempted to
transfer the grant to another company
which of course intended to appro
priate it as the company might-see
fit , because it had no contract to
keep with the Government. The
Interior Department got a pretty i
stron"1 scent at this huge rodent , and
nipped the affair in the bud , but the
powerful lobby conies to the rescue
and the railroad bondholders will
realize the full value of their securi
ties without having invested a dollar
in the construction ! If the people
don't like this way of doing things ,
they had better ask : Avhat are they
going to do about it !
Mr. Randall's appropriation com
mittee is doing a good work in cut
ting down the consular and diplomatic
appropriation. It would be money in
our pockets , and the saving of a vast
deal of public scandal if about one-
half of this diplomatic retinue of tin
selled humbuggery were wiped out
altogether. The moment that an t
American is clothed with the little
brief authority of a foreign consul ,
he seems to loose all respect for his
country as well as himself. There is
no more need of consuls at five-sixths
of the places Avhere they are now loaf
ing at Government expensethan there
is for warming-pans at Timbuctoo.
It is a big job for one man to un
dertake when he attempts to reform
the innumerable abuses of this world.
He must be a sort of political agnostic
tic , who believes that a Congressional
enactment is all that is necessary to
carry out the evolution and revolution
of human nature , provided that the
whole ground can be covered in a sin
gle bill. Senator Cullom , of Illinois ,
is one of those fresh fellows who has
not been in the Senate long enough
to receive his marticulation , but he
has got a bill in fact several of them
which propose to change this Gov
ernment into one of the regular papa
sort. One of these bills is turning
the entire railroad system of the coun
try over to a quintuple of "Ancient
Mariners , " with a modern sort of a
salary. Now the principle may be
all right , and I am not going to quar
rel over it if it is not , but I would
like to know how long five men are
going to stand out against the inter
ests of two thousand millions of profi
tably invested capital ?
