HON. G. M. LAMBERTSON has
been honored with the appoint
ment to fill the vacant assistant
secretaryship in the treasury de
partment for the period that will
intervene between now and .the 4
of March. Sir. Lambertson
doubtless appreciates the compli
ment , but we doubt whether he
would refuse to fill the seat in the
United States senate after the 4
of March if the legislature should
see fit to elect him. Bee.
A STRICT party paper in dis
cussing the subject of immigra
tion says : " "Fortunately the mat
ter has not taken the form of si
party issue. " Exactly ; and why
would it not be fortunate if no
question affecting the country at
largo took the form of a "party
issue ? " What good is attained
by making every question that
arises a 'party issue" and discus
sing it from a party standpoint ;
yet this IB precisely what the regu
lar orthodox party newspaper
does , and meanwhile belabors the
independent press for taking a
non-partisan view of the particu
lar subject under discussion.
THE lake front in Chicago ,
which the court says belongs to
the public and not the Illinois
Central railroad , is famous for
some things besides the litigaticai
it has caused. It is now a reco
uized branch of the business of
the Chicago highwaymen to lure
innocent grangers to the shore of
the lake with the story that a
great wreck is floating toward the
beach. When the agriculturj
visitor reaches the shore he is en
ticed into a shell game or robbed
by a more direct plan , just as the
fancy of the gentleman in charge
dictates. The lake front has been
a source of great profit to these
robbers as well as to the lawyers.
] So\v that Mr. Gould is dead any
number of persons are announcing
that he was all sorts of mean
things and claiming that his sue-
ces was due to his cold-blooded
cunning. It has come out in the
biographies that Gould was a very
hard working man ; that , as a boy ,
he was used to getting up at 4
o'clock in the morning to study ,
while the other youth of the gen
eration that is abusing him were
getting their "beauty sleep. " It
has also been found that he was
regular and methodical in his
work , and it is likely that there
was not so much luck and cold
bloodedness in his success as the
unthinking were likely to surmise.
Mr. Gould was not a proper char
acter to walk up and down the pages
of a Sunday school book , because
his ambition was not of a high
order , but such as it was he stuck
to it and kept it before him early
and late , and finally satisfied it.
That is something to one's credit
even if his ambition is not the
WE have passed through a
period of political convulsion jus
as they have across the water , bii
every patriotic American will re
joice that none of the politica
scandals and turmoils which are
now amazing Europe , have then
counterpart here. The change in
administration has been effected
in the main without corruption ,
and a healthy tone prevails in both
official and private life. When we

to the views of a great many good
people , the world is getting better
and the government of the United
States is steadily advancing in
efficiency and integrity. Of course
it may pause in its onward march
now and tlien , but it is pleasant to
know that temporary set backs like

of ten , caused by the restlessness

SOME of the papers of the state
are making their biennial sugges
tions to the members of the legis
lature in regard to the abominable
system of assessing in vogue in
bids state. The people and the
papers have pleaded loud and long
ior a change , but no attention has
ijeen paid to their complaints. To
say that we have the worst system
of assessing of any state in the
union but faintly expresses it.
Some countries assess at one-sixth ,
others at one-fourth , one-third and
some at its cash value. The next
egislature should pass a law mak-
ng the assessments uniform all
over the state.
