SENATOR HITCHCOCK AKD HIS POST-
Federal patronage when judicious

powerful lever in the hands of a
skilled political leader. On the
other hand this prerogative may
prove his greatest curse when be
stowed on improper or unworthy
persons. Such evidently seems to
bee the case with Senator Hitch

"When Senator Hitchbook firct or
ganized the postal pool by which
Griffen anu Yost were to share and
divide Uncle Sam's most luscious
sugarplum , he could not possibly
have foreseen that this plum would
turn to ashes in their unhallowed
hands. Time has demonstrated
what the Senator will doubtless ad
mit that he committed a very grave
blunder when he saddled Yost upon
Griffin , and that he committed the
greatest blunder of his political life
when he saddled Yost upon himself.
Xobody knows better than does
Senator Hitchcock that Griffon's"
troubles , beginning with Yost , were
aggravated and precipitated by
Yost. Griffin fell victim to his own
stupidity in sustaining the outra
geous policy inaugurated by Yost
against the BEE , and Senator Hitch
cock must inevitably fall a victim
to his ovyn generosity if he attempts
to sustain Yost hi his official corrupt
In his personal attachment to a
political ally the Senator is apt to
lose sight of his duty to the public.

the most important positions within

It is immaterial whether Special

been sustained. - The people of Oma

sworn testimony and fQFm94 their
own verdict. They cannot bo bribed ,
nor can any honest or honorable
Republican journal attempt to ex
onerate the officer who , acrording
to his own admissions , is gujty } of
the most disgraceful offenses.
Even the Omaha Republican ,
Yost's personal organ , has not dared
to face public indignation by at
tempting his defence. The silence
of the Democratic } press at this stage
of procedure may readily be ex
plained. They want nothing bet
ter than the retention of Yost in the
Omaha postoffice to give the lie to
the professions of Republicans , that
