Cleveland Receives Them With n
Short Speech Washington citi
zens Arc Indignant Over Al-
A Grand Army Repudiation.
WASHINGTON , August 3. General Hosc-
crans recently received from Charles Whitehead -
head , chairman ol Iho committee on resolu
tions of the National Yetcran association ,
of DCS Molties , la. , copies of resolutions
adopted by that association repudiating Iho
utterances of certain members of the 0. A.
It. In connection with tlio proposed visit of
the president to St. Louis while the Grand
Army etica'mpment was In progress there ;
commenting on the president's veto of the
dependent pension bill ; condemning the ef
forts of those who seek by the rebel flag epi
sode to rekindle the flames of sectional hate
and contention , as unmanly , unpatriotic aud
meriting the contempt of Intelligent men.
The resolutions also compliment
General Black's administration ot the
pension office. General Rosccrans was
requested to deliver the copies of these reso
lutions to the president and General Black ,
To-day he called on the president , and In
presenting the resolutions , expressed his be
lief that they are In accord with the views of
ft vast majority of the G. A. H. as to loyal re
ft pec t to the chief maghtrato and the Impro
priety of denouncing him for what ho be
lieves his official duty. Ho also thought
the statements commanded the assent of that
much laiger body of ex-union soldiers not be
longing to Iho G. A. II. society.
The piesldent , replying , said : "Without
reading the resolutions presented by you In
nuch a gratifying manner. 1 have only to
Bay , judging from the tenure of your
remarks , the action ot Iho veterans
mentioned Is In thu direction of the acknowl
edging of a duty which devolves tipn them
us veterans to emplinsl/.o the value of their
services in tlio Held by a patriotic service at
Jiome , and demonstrate the same bravery
shown In battle by courage no loss conspicu
ous when the freedom and patriotism which
In peace Is the safety of American Institu
tions. Understanding this to bo the purpose
of the resolutions , 1 am glad to receive them
nt vour hands. "
Hosecrans In a letter to Commissioner
Black inclosing a cony of Iho resolutions ,
Hald : "They am replete with palilotlsm ,
good sense and a just denunciation of dis
loyalty to the country and treason to Iho
spirit of Iho soclely ot the Grand Army man
ifested In recent attempts by certain officers
and members of thai association lo raisu tor
a partisan purpose nn outcry aqalnst the
chief nmcistratc. When it Is romcm-
beied that largely more lhan half the rank
and Illu of the union army wore either dem
ocratic or merely union men , It will oo
plainly seen why the G. A. It. as a republi
can machine , was a miserable failure ; why
It , at a late time , only revived when non-
paitisar.slnp was made fundamental ; why
the hypocrisy of violating this principal , by
taking itmait partisan advantages In the
choice of Its officers , post and com-
manderlcs , and the paying of special
public favors and honor to comrades
of republican persuasion , has hlthoito cre
sted such a disgust of Its spirit as to prevent
the society from including double and possi
bly triple Its present membership and com
manding universal icspect for the self-con
trolling loyalty which covered with glory Its
members during the dark days of "the wai
for the union. "
WhIUihead , in the letter to Itosecrans , asks
the general to present these resolutions in
the name of at least 10,000 ux-uulon soldiers

TreTclyan's Kloction a Great Victory
For Dome Kulc.
LONDON , August 3. Sir George Trevely-
an's victory continues of absorbing Inlerest.
The London and provincial conservative
newspapers azree in saying that the elecllon
Is an ominous fact and it would bo unwise to
Ignore or extenuate Its significance. The
Gladstonlan papers are confident that an im
mediate general elecllon would result In the
return of a homo rule majority. The same
view is shared by the ministerialist , ? , which
fact leads to a free oxpiession of the opinion
that the povcrnmcnl , being sure of a compact
majority during the run ot the present par
liament , will not risk dissolution until
the end of the natural term , five yo.us
honcH , when Gladstone will probably be deader
or his powers weakened.
The Pall Mall Gazette publishes a now
homo rule scheme purporting to have been
accepted by the liberal leaders. This scheme
irlves Ireland a national legislature and an
executive. There will bo no separation.
The Ulster Irish members will continue to
sit In the Imperial parliament In their pres
ent numbers. The powers of the Irish par
liament will bo delegated , matters to bo con
trolled In Dublin , being clearly defined and
also subiect to revision by tlio imperial par
liament. The land question will bo left to
the Irish parliament. It U doubtful whether
the statement is official. The statement Is
valuable , however , as Indicating the line of
the amended policy of Morley , Trevelyan ,
and lloreourt. which Is probably assented to
by Gladstone and satisfactory to the liberals

A Striking Address By the Great
Mugwump at the Annual Meeting
of the National Civil Service
The Spnllq System Still Liven.
NKwi'oitT , H. I. , August 3. George Will
iam Curtis , president of the National Civil
Service Reform league , delivered some strik
ing opinions In his annual address at the
meeting of Ihe leazuo hcie to-day. Mr. Cur
tis said : "It Is now possible to judge cor
rectly the course of President Cleveland's ad
ministration In regard to civil service re
form , and I regret to say that dur
ing the two years and live
months of the administration's existence
while the reform law has been respected
within its limited range , aud while them are
unquestionable and uncouragliiiC signs of
irogress , yet according to Intoraiallon un-
: oubtedly authentic , there has been a very
Igullicant chaniru In the civil service. " Sub-
tantlally , the whole force ot government
employes has been changed , barely enough
izperionced men being retained to allow the
egular transaction of the public business.
iVhlle this result was the desire and
xpectation of a larger and Important part
f President Cleveland's supporters at the
oils , Mr. Curtis could not believe that It
i-as desired or anticipated by the Intelligent
cntlmmit of thn country. If the persistent
iressure for spoils had been resisted firmly
ml no chance tolerated beyond an equitable
ilvlslon between the parties that might have
cen accepted as a permissible com-
iromlso under the dilllcult clrcum-
tances , Mr. Curtis believed the re-
orm system would have been so
Irongly entrenched In public approval lhat
it tlio end ot the second term of the admin-
stration which established It , no succeeding
> arty or president would venture to Intei-
ere. If President Cleveland should tie-
ilare that the geneial political reconstruc-
Ion that had taken place was due to a change
if conviction on his part In laver ot the
polls system ho would be abandoned
ly so largo a body of citl/ens
, s lo bring his re-election Into
erlous peril. The civil service reform league ,
mwever , believed the president , upiightlv
dealing with a vast and complicated ranzo
if duties , had been unable lo accomplish all
' 10 would have gladly done. The league
mist nevertheless emphatically declare that
tdoes not regard the administration , though
Aorttiv of respect and confidence for many
pasons , as In any stilut sense ot the woid a
civil service reform administration.
A business meeting was held and George
iVIlllam Curtis unanimously elected prosl-
Innt. He accepted In a few" brief remarks.
Reports from forty various associations were
uade. The committee on resolutions ren
dered a report at great longlh , embodying In
substance the Ideas sot forth in Mr. Curtis'
Notice Is taken of the violation of the pros-
dent's circular by certain federal oftico hold
ers at recent primary elections In Baltimore.
The Maryland association is requested to In-
vesli.ute , and If necessaiy the executive com
mittee ot the league , in connection with the
itato association , may request the president
o dismiss the offenders If the charges aiu
Among other things the league renews Its
recommendation tliat the application of the
civil service rule be exlended lo the District
of Columbia , the postal mall service , the
mint service , the clerical torcn In the Indian
service , and other offices where a smaller
orce than fitly clerks are required , aim
recommends that assistant heads ot bureaus
and heads of divisions should be Included
within the classification ; that the senate
iliould considernomlnationslnopen session :
hal public officers should bo required lo place
upon Iho public record all appointments , re
movals and resignation * and reasons there

otlicers to four years should bo repealoi as a
baneful pourco of Intrigue and corruption ,
The leas no earnestly recommends to Its con
stituent associations that associations In tho-e
tales in which no civil service law has been
adopted exert themselves to the utmost to
promote the passage of laws establishing the
merit system of appointments.

inltlee claim the election of Bradlev for gov
ernor. Sixty eight counties out ot 110 In the
state heard from show nnar 23,000 republican
gains. Gaining In the same ratio In counties
to hear from will elect Ihn whole republican
ticket. The democrats admit it will take Iho
official vole lo decide who Is elected.
LOUISVILLE , August 3. [ PressJ The
Courier-Journal's returns from sixty-four
legislative districts shows the election to Hie
house of forty-nine democrats , thirteen re
publicans , ouo prohibitionist and ono union
labor candidate. There are thlrtv-slx dis
tricts yet to hoar from which
will largely Increase the democratic
list. General S. B. Bucknor , democrat , U
elected governor by reduced majority. The
democratic vote is Indicated by returns now
In as being very lluht. Buckner's majority
Is now estimated at 20,000 to 3.1,000.
Iteturns from Monday's election come In
very slowly. Unofficial reports from fifty
out of 110 counties show a dcmocratl c loss of
7,000.as compared with Cleveland's majorlly.
At this rate Bucknor's plurality will be be
tween 20,000 and 30,000. The official vole
will bo counted by the local olllcers Thurs
LixtNOTON : , Ky. , Augusts. A privatedls-
patch from W. O. Bradley lo-day says : "I'm
elected governor of Kentucky by 5,000 ma
jority. " This indicates the republican
claims as to the result of the election. Until
to-day the republicans conceded the election
of Buckner on a small majority. Itcports
are In from all counties with telegraphic
communication. The democratic loss , as
compared with Iho vote of four years ago ,
In nearly fifty counties has been
fully 18.000. The counties heard from
are nearly all republican. Countlne
them as such , and bislng an estimate on the
best attainable figures , General Buckner's
majority will bo not loss than 12,000.
CINCINNATI , August 3. A Commercial-
Gazette special at muftilght says that news
from seventy-three counties shows pains of
24,000 for Bradley , the republican candidate
for governor , and that thn remaining coun
ties , which are more strongly republican ,
will probably elect him if the pioportion of
gain holds out Fox , the prohibitionist , will
probably get -1,000 votes. The democrats
have reduced tholr claim to Si)00 ) majority tor
Buckner. Only the official count can remove
thn present uncertainty.
Loimvn.u : , Ky. , August 3. Tlio Courier-
Journal has unofficial returns from fifty-six
counties. These returns show a loss from
Cleveland's majority ( ! 14S39) ) of 7,710. It this

democratic loss will bo 13,850 , lo.wing Buck-

Nnw YOHK , August ,1 [ Special Tele-
lam to the BEI.J : A Herald reporter visited
several ( ierman Catholic clergymen of this
city last evening for the puiposo ot obtain-
Ins their views regarding the proposed Ger
man-American convention at Chicago next
month. Nearly all professed entire Ignor
ance on the subject matter of the Chicago dis
patch , but admitted that they heard irom
limn to time reports of dissatisfaction among
priests and people of ( ierman nationality re
siding west relative to the appointment of
Irish bishops to sees whcro the majority of
the faithful were Germans. Ono prominent
Homan Catholic rector of a Gentium parish ,
who was averse to the publication of his
name , tor obvious reasons , as ho remarked ,
trom his own personal observations and
knowledge obtained by several journeys
through the western states , said : "I can
easily understand how It Is that my country
men tltoio should think It expedient to call
this convention. We have but a very small
minority of tlio hierarchy of America , wholly
out of proportion to the number of Gor
man Catholics. Take the great stale of
Ohio , for Instance , with Its vast num
ber of Germans attending the Catholic
churches , and say whether you think it just
that Irish and Scotch bishops alone should
rule over them. By all means a German
should have been appointed archbishop of
Cincinnati Instead of Archbishop Elder ,
\\liososympathlos are with hid Irish people
altogether. Then Chicago , Sioux City , Du-
biique , Indianapolis , 1'eorla , Plttsburg and
other dioceses that I mUlit mention , ouirht
by right to have German ordinaries. Jio-
mcmber that our German priests are not
actuated bv anj personal or sellish feeling
In this matter. lUthcr It Is with them a se
rious matter of consequence , for wo have
found that where Irish priests have been
appointed to Gel man , or partly German
parishes , they have systematically Ignored
our German people , and as a consequence the
latter have become disgusted and eventually
stopped going to mass at all. The result has
been that their children have fallen away
Irom the church , mixed marriages have
become lamentably licquent , and grad
ually our German people have been
drilling toward Infidelity , or , what
1 regard as bad , protestantism. Thu Germans
also bellovo In parochial schools , when ouo
of the studies must bo that ot German. They
want their children taught the language of
their ancestors , and Geunan priests agree
with them that this Is a most important sub
ject , for WP know by experience that when
our ( ierman children attend public schools
and study English only , they soon become
ashamed of their nationality and want to be
come even more American than Americans
"Now , " said the reporter , "are these griev
ances confined to the west , and have you In
the eastern states nothing to complain of ? "
"Well , " replied the priest , " 1 do not want
to speak of things here , as I do not care to
have the Irish Kplscop.ite , which , almost
without exception , holds sway OT Jt
eastern dioceses , think that wo are
disattected , for in that event they
would simply unite to crush us. But I am
free to say that the Germans have no proper
recognition In any diocese. Look at Now
York. The aichbishop and his two vicars
general are Kngllsh-speakinp persons two
or them Irish. In Philadelphia the arch
bishop and his two vicars are Irishmen ,
coming from the same diocese of the old
country Waterford. The archepi copal sees
of Boston a nil Baltimore are similarly fixed
with Irish functionaries , and thu German-
speaklnir priests and people are wholly Ig
nored. I tell you that these things must bo
remedied or you may count the next genera
tion of Germans out ot the Catholic church.
1 hail with delight the determination to hold
this Chicago cotuciitlon , and 1 augur good
results horn It. "
