SPEAKING of President Hayes *
economy in the White House , it is a
well-known fact that ell of our recent
presidents have saved money. Mr.
Lincoln is spoken of as having laid
by over $50,000. Johnnoa saved
SGO,000. The salary in their time
was only § 25,000 , while it is nov § EO-
ODO Grant is generally supposed to
have saved about 5100,000. He snly
had the increased salary for n small
part of his torm. Mr. Hayes is nnp
posed to have lived on $10,000 a year
which will make his savings § 160,000
at the close of his term.
Mu. THOMAS BAYARD has gotten
himiolfin trouble. During the lat
canvass he made a speech at Dover , in
which he denounced in unmeasured
terms the moiety system in the cus
torn houio , and the proceedings by
which Phelps , Dodge Co. were com.
ptslled to disgorge § 267,000 of evaded
duties. He distinctly charged tha
this sum was divided between Sena
tor Conkling , Judge Noah
Davis , Special Agent Jayno
Jrtid Chester A. Arthur. Thesi
gentlemen have written nn open letter
tor to Bayard , denouncing the storj
as an infamous lie , and demanding ai
explanation. Bayard crawfishes ant
denies he ever used the language al
tributcd to him by the newspapers
which , he says , garbled his remarks
The moral of this episode is , never t
speak from the stump what you
wouldn't bo willinu to write fro-n the
IT is understood that the president
has decided to appoint Gen. Terry SB
commandant at West Point , while
General Miles will succeed him in
command of the department with
headquarters at St. Paul. The Pioneer
Frets esys : "If this information ,
which oomes from our "Washington
correspondent through General How
ard , is correct , the Pioneer
1'rtu desires to remark thai
that it is by far the happiest
solution of the West Point problem
which the president could have made.
Though Gen. Terry is not a West
Pointer , there is probably no officer
in the army BO admirably fitted by
his culture , his acccmpl ; timeuts , his
p raonhl wt..h and the moral eleva
tion and intellectual dignity of his
character for * he position of com
mandant at West Point. He is the'
ideal gentleman and soldier ,
nnd the West Point cadets
rould have no better model of the best
lypeof either than will be presented

fi we hare no donbt ho will be to that
Jionorable office. While the depar-

tpoieJTthan General Miles.
THE democratic majority in the
houBa have wasted four days of val
nable time in trying to crowd througt
congrcts the Bickncll electoral bil
with all its objectionable features
These feature ? , late in the last BCS
sion , they incorporated into a join
resolution hoping by this evasion t (
preclude the necessity of the preai
dent's signature and the possibility o
a veto. This resolution is cpposec
to the spirit of the constitution
It confers powers upon the house * ol
representatives which it was never in
tended that it ehonld possess. It jrivei
to the house and senate the right tc
reject any vote from any stat < 5 on thi
most trivial objection , no matter how
unjust , and no matter whether it had
been previously determined by the
proper state tribunals. This
radical measure wai purposely do
Ivr'ed , in order , if occasion wore af
forded , that it might bo adopted ' 01
amended to enable the democracy tc
seize upon any of the advantages
whictMnight arise from the last elec
tion. The emphatic election oi
Generals Garfinld and Arthur foiled
this scheme , bat the majority in the
Dje is apparently as fully deter
mined now as it was aix months ego
that the resolution shall bs passed.
The constitutional provision for
counting the electoral vote clearly
gives no judicial powers to the two
houses of congresi. They are simply
toba the -witnesses at the counting of
the votes , which are to bo opened
solely by the president of the senate.
Where any doubt exists s to thenn-
thenticity of the vote in the hands of
the vice-president , the constitution
has provided no means for settling
MASSACHUSETTS through .he Boston
-Adwrttser protests against the shame
ful abuse ot President Hayes by the
so-called stalwarts. It 'says that the
old Bay State would have given Hayes ,
if he had been nominated , as large a
majority as it gave Garfield. "We
think ho has had a clean , upright ,
honorable administration. Massa
chusetts does not sympathize with
thia political abuse of Hayes. He
had a good cabinet , and has appointed
good office-holders. "
CONGRESSMEN" are as superstitions
as other people. When the late Re

THE U. B. MABSHALSHIP.
Crete Standard : E. L. Bierbower ,
of Sidney , has been appointed , by
President Hayes , U. S. marshal for
Nebraska. The fight for this office
hrs been waging for six months past ,
and Saunders now carries off the
plume much to the chagrin of Pad
dock and The Omaha Republican ,
which now sets up a howl that it
ought to have been given to some
one who had done more work for the
party. No question of fitness would
bo considered by these sharks of Ne
braska politics , but that is what
Saunders and Hayes considered in
Mr. Biorbower and he was appointed.
