The announcement was mndo earl
last week from Washington that the a <
ministration had decided to show som
regard for the Wish of a majority of il
party and of the people , and to use a pai
of the surplus in the treasury in payin
off a portion of the bond obligations c
the government. It was said that upo
n more careful examination of the treai
ury situation ainco the adjournment c
cougress , the conclusion had bee
reached that the surplus , probably vor
nearly to the amount contemplated b
the rcsolmJonDt Mr.Morflsojt can b
safely used in the redemption ot bond :
Knowing the actual demands upon tli
treasury in the form of appropriation :
and being able to estimate very closol
the probable revenues of the year , Hi
secretary is enabled to see his COUK
moro clearly and surely than it was poss
ble for him to do in advance of tlio at
journment ; and having the entire discn
lion iu the matter ho has decided that
call of bonds Is expedient. This is
gratifying concession to the popular di
mand that the millions lying id !
in the treasury In excess of the rcquln
m-jnts of tLo government shall bo on
ployed In paying off the public debt ail
reducing the annual interest charge. ;
is also a plain confession of the correc
ness of the opiuioa that the surplus coul
bo wisely nnd safely employed in th
way. It suggests that either the jucl }
ment of those who maintained Hi
opinion was bettor than that of the troa
ury , or lhat tliO'Oppositlou of Iho laltc
was made chlelly * for the purpose of re
talnlngtho discretionary power in tl
matter , which , indeed , was the gravame
of the argument from this source agaiui
the Morrison resolution.
It is reported that the action of tl
assistant secretary of the treasury i
making a call for bonds is strongly coi
domncd by Treasurer Jordan , not wholl
upon llnnncial grounds , but as ui unwh
concession to tlio extreme clement i
congress. It is not understood that th
is a matter with which Mr. Jordan lu
anything to do , but it has bccomn a hab
with that oUiclal who is really nothin
moro than a chief clerk to make himso
prominent In connection with treasury u
fairs , whether they aHented his oraueh c
thnsorvico or not , thereby gaining a m
torioty which neither his position nor h !
ability entitles him to , Jordan was
Now York banker , nnd it need not r
f.alil that all his views and methods at

that section. He ronld bo spared froi
the financial department of the goven

termination to resign.

It Is n controlling tondiMicy of pi

count that can possibly bo pi-rvorlcd i

tion in the Mexican controversy. Co
tain extreme republican journals , nt tl
beginning of the difficulty , professed I

conspiracy to inaugurate a war in ordi
to pcrpotunto that party In power , and
rather feeble and inconclusive attemi
was made on Iho part of some of them I
find a parallel In the democratic scheni
of aggrandizement and slavery oxfonsio
lhat was the chief motive In the last wr
with Mexico. On the otiicr hand , tl :
statement is made that in lulmlnistratlo
circles , or at least in the state depar
ment , the Impression urcvails that Hi
dillieulties in the way of n settlumci
Have been created not so much by Mo.\
cans n.s by obliging friends in this com
try , who , in their ollbrls to embarrass Hi
administration , have suggested t
Hie Mexican authorities mctliot
of opposition which pcrliar. .
they would not have thougl
of. It is even claimed that the oflbrts c
Mr. Olaino's friends have been e.xertc
to strengthen Hie attitude of Mexico i
order to hhow that "Mr. Bayard hn
acted with too much haste and has bee
too exacting. "
A very little analysis will show Iho al
surdlty of both these positions. In Hi
first place It must be remembered tin
the primary causa of the arrestof Cuttin
was the fact of his having slandered
citizen of Mexico , one Emiglio Mcdin :
and it , WHS a purely personal and bus
ness affair that led him to do thii
Medina , had announced his intention t
publish a paper in Paso del Nortc , an
with the purpose of damaging the pr <
jcct Cutting denounced him as a rasea
deadbeat , etc. When arrested Cutlin
signed a form of "reconciliation" prt
rided for by the Mexican law aud wn
allowed to go , but it is alleged again pi
the libel in circulation and was rca ;
rested , when it is charged ho committo
the further offense of putting liin
self in contempt of the cour
Now Qit is possible that this las
act may have been in a measure due t
the advice of Consul Brigham , but to assume
sumo thatnp to this stage the administrr
tion or any responsible part of it had anj
thing to do with promoting the difficult
is too obviouslyridiculous to be acccopte
by any man of intelligence and camloi
Inquiry as to the character of Cuttin
shows him to be a very worthless , uti
principled und troublesome fellow , vcr
far from being the sort of man wliic
would bo holcctcd bv any rcsponsibl
body of men roprcscnling a party to I
the chief actor in a conspiracy intcnde
lo involve two friendly governments i
war.Tho charge that friends of Mr. Blaim
or anybody else other than perhaps th
American minister nnd consul , have bee
instrumental in embarrassing tlic admh
istrnl on in Hits matter is no less stupid !
ridiculous than the other nssumptioi
Even if Hie Mexican government wet
not abiindanlly able lo take care of il
own diplomatic controversies il certain !
would not seolc or accept advic
from American politicians. It could fin
no end of counsellors in other direction
in which it would have moro confidence
But it Is not apparent that the friends c
Mr , Blaine could have any object to sorv
by intermeddling. They certainly coul
not ' ! 0je to bring the aifiiiiiitstration hit
disrepute with the people for prompt ! ,
asset ting the authority of thogovcrnmer
in behalf of an American citizen who wi
believed to hnvo been denied his righl
and unjustly dealt witli by a foreign go\ \
eminent. If friends of Mr. Blaine wcr
speaking for him this is not , the positlo
they would bo expected to take , fo
promptness , decision and firmness on th
uait of the government in protecting il
citizens is n cardinal part of the politic :
policy and capital of Mr. Blaine. Il i
unnecessary , however , lo multiply illtii
tralions of the absurdity of the allcmr
of certain newspapers to give the conlrt
vorsy witli Mexico a political hue. The
may secure the concurrence of n few o >

Tlio Proslilcmt'H Voracity.
Mr. Cleveland is not an ardent ai
mirer of thn newspapers. Ho doesn't bi
licvo they are truthful and trustworthy
and ho hasn't licsitalod to say so who
opportunity enabled him to do so. In hi
well-remembered letter to the editor c
Puck ho accused the newspapers of lyin
generally nnd mcauly , at this time mor
than over before , and in this oountr ,
moro than iu any other country. II
characterized this habit as an insult t
Iho love of decency and fair play t
which Americans boast. Wo arc nr
aware lhat Mr. Cleveland over rotracte
or qualified this accusation , but quite n
contly ho has shown that his opinion c
last December is his opinion still , No
many days ago in a letter to n Florid
man he expressed sui prlso that the geutlt
man should have boon annoyed by no\v ;
paper lalk , knowing "Iho utter nnd coir
ploto recklessness and falsification i
which they so generally Indulge. "
For the strength of his cause th
record of the accuser should b
clean and above reproach. Ho'
li it with the president ? Th
Washington Post , a domoorallc paper
high character , makes a statement in ar
swur to the question. It stales lhat th
editor of that journal , hearing the report
that the collector at Now York was aboi
to bo replaced , called on the preslden
and nskcd if there was any basis of fac
m Iho rumors. It - * as the privilege c
the president to have told him that li
had no information on the subject t
impart , that ho dh a't desire to talk abou
the matter , or that it was no business a
the editor. But lid didn't do this. 11
informed tlic nowsp.tpet man that llct
den had not rcsl nccf , had not bee
asked to resign , nmj tlfat there was IK
a word of truth In. the tcports rcgardln
a proposed chnngOrin th * Now Yor
custom house. The editor returned t
his ollico nnd his paper appeared wit
the information he had received dlrcctl
from Iho lips of Iho president consplei
oii'Iy printed in n double leaded arllcli
It wa.s an exceedingly important matti
of general concern , anil the journal ! :
treated it ns such , warranted in so doln
by tlio word of tin * highest olllcii
authority in the natichi. But williln
few hours after the paper had given tli
information to the public on the author ! )
of the executive , an olllcinl bulletin wr
issued announcing that Mnaono had sin
cccdcd Hoildcn. There was no mistal
ing the fact Hint Mr. Cleveland had mi
represented the situation to tlio cdltc
and led him to commit the fault whic
ho charges Is general with the new
paper * . To put it plainly , the prcsldei
had deliberately and shamelessly liet
under circumstances that gave him m
the least excuse for falseliood.
Perhaps thu is not the only case tin
could bo cited to show that Mr. Clcvt
land is not incapable of falseliood , or
form of prevarication Hint has a vcr
close Kinship to it. But this is enough t
disqualify him for Hie present as a jtii
and trustworthy censor of tlic press.

bitten on the back of the right hand by si

He had just killed one monster with his
whlpsloclc , and while returning to hi :
wagon a few yards distant struck nn

and fastened its fangs in his hand. IU
seized the rcptilo with his loft hand and
tore it loose and .stumped it to death and
at once sucked tlio wound , extracting the
poison , which act undoubtedly saved hi ;
life. Ho then drove to Iho post , a distance
tanco of thirty miles , sufforinc Ilia mosi
intense pain. His hand and arm an
terribly swollen , and ho Is n very sink
