If Mr. Arthur ever had any sincere
opinions about the utility of Civil Ser
vice Reform , ho has completely aban
doned them. His 'appointment of uien
to the most important of official posi
tions who have neither qualifications nor
character , shows that. lie has picked
out the men who were subservient in his
cause last summer , and one by one doling
ing out such rewards as he supposes
pitch menials aie entitled to. The last
appointment , that of Draper for the
Court -of Commissioners of Alabama
Claims , is one most eminently unfit. The
fact that Drapef expcnded a good deal
of time in looking after Arthur's politi
cal foi tunes , is the only qualification
that the man possesses for this high nnd
responsible position. It looks from this
standpoint as if the President intended
to make room for all his favorites who
are not already provided for.
1 have already told you of the remarkable -
able power in society at the Capital that
is wielded b } official position , which of
itself has become a local aristocr'utio
institution. But there is rife among
the higher ofiiuiuln a sentiment that is
prone to bow down to the shrine of the
dollar , and Arthur , like Hayes , and like
Grant , is one of the worst cases of this
kind uPidiilutiy. From the time of Ar
thur's accession , he liaa given the cold
shoulder to every public man who is
obliged to live within moderate means.
Ilo is all the time running after the na
bobs , and associates only with thoio
who.nffuid to live in luxuriour ease.
There was never a President who went
abroad uo much as he does , and there
was never one ( uiiluas it be Grant. ) who
.sought the doom of the wealthy and
went hack on those who hud made him.
Take the case of Logan whoso services
in the GUI field campaign were invalua
ble to his party , and who has all along
been friendly to the President , and
whoso opinion has been freely sought
and as frei-ly been given. Mr. Arthur
has never condescended to call upon him
once , because Logan could not live in a
brown stone front , while b'enator Mil
ler , with no brains but plenty of money ,
could command the attendance of the
Executive and his official retinue ut any
One of the bitterest and in some re
spects most disgraceful Senatorial con-
tebts ever occurring in any State has
just terminated out in Colorado by a
triumph for personal and political integ
rity. The country at large is not much
u-quaiiited with the details of of this
iingular local-struggle , but the people
f the whole country are deeply interest-
id in the election oTproper men to oc-
jupy seats iu the U. S. Senate , and in " 1
he suppression of the peculiar methods
\hich have often obtained in effecting
choice. The notion that any man may

n recent years , has had two very con-
ipicuous set backs in the last few days.

iminsand fitness over big bank accounts.
Jejjator Hill , the wealthiest man in Col-
irado , whose income is over $1,000 per
lay , has been for two years past plan-
ling and scheming to secure bis own re-
urn.Nothing that money or the most 1
itiM.T p lou * manipulation could do has
ieen omitted bj him in his efforts to this-
nd. During tliih dim ; he has subsidized
ir purchased outright thirteen newspa-
isrs in different parts of the State , in-
ludijig the ' Tribune-Republican" of
) nnver , and these journals hare been
rom first , to last his supliant tools , rai.s-

alilies and vehemently attacking all

Hiii man. In the lute campaign , af-
ur debauching the piimaried in a most
utrageous manner , he furnished mon-
y to defeat at least five Republican
