It is well known that tlio president not

operations , where ho endeavored , it is
charged , by tlio use of his authority as com
missioner of pensions to the aspira

not only assigned political agents to thu

Jiur months S.tSM names have bean added to

Hlach's personal representative at the St.
Louis convention was Mr. Murphy , the chief
clerk of tlm pension cilice , mid the president
is said to have been quite offended with hia
pernicious activity there. Hut while he has
spoken very frankly to General IHack anil to
otiiers of hiH disapproval of these transac
tions , he has not invited the resignation of
either of them , and they will not bo removed
from ofllce , for If they were , Colonel Mor

other officials who were guilty of the same

The democratic national committco is
hunting for a chairman. The position has
boon tendered to and declined by Senator
Gorman. Heprescntativo Scotland General
Calvin S. Brlcy , the railway manager and
millionaire. Allthrcoof them declined because -
cause of tlio pressure of their business and
the inability to give the necessary attention
to thu management of the campaign. They
agree to glvo as time as possible to
political work , but cannot assume the re
Hponslbility of thu direction of tlio affairs of
tlio canvass. EvSenatoiWallace , of Penn

dency of the United States , the Now Jersey
leader took ono more long look In the glass
mid then started on It run to the barber's to
H.icrltleo his prldo upon tin ) altar of ids ambl

nor excuse for the slander , nnd the indigna

been that some indiscriminate and thought

his bangs were ilHtuibed fiom theft normal

his classic head was never more conspicuous

There was a bill passed and approved last
February creal'ng ' two new divisions of the
railway mall service to bo established , nt the
lieginning of the em rent fiscal ytar , and
there Is considerable inquiry as to why no
action has been taken. Mr. Hancroft , the
superintendent of the railway mail service ,
tells me that the delay is owing to the lack
of money to cirry the liw into effect.
The poslulHeo appropriation bill for

HEIIMV , July 12. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to THE UIB. : ] Prof. Uerg-
nann eloes not desire to enter into the news-
mper warfare which Sir Morrcll Mackenzie
.ins . smarted. He isontiro'y conlldcnt of Iho
crushing effect of Iho recently issued im-
> crial blue book contain ing si scathing criti
cism of Mackenzie's method by all the
greatest throat specialists of the two crn-
) Ircs , and which bus proved to bo unanswer
able except by mysterious threats iounded
on unproduccablc , non-existent state secrets.
S'evertheless , Dr. Hcrgmnnn authorizes me
.0 give the following emphatic statements as
coming from him :
"All the German physicians were on the
Oth of May , 1S& " , agreed as to the necessity
'or the comparative safety of the prineo of
the throat operation. After such operations
nany cases are known of recovery , and sev
eral of long life one living twenty years
afterwards. Mackenzie's confident state-
ncnt that ho could certainly cure the patient
within six weeks prevented the operation. I
am confident that Mackenzie then honestly
iiolloyed that the disease was not
cancer , but , led nway by am
bition , determined to take the patient
to England , nway from tbo other doctors ,
ind thus pet exclusive credit for the cure. I
believe ilrmly that on the Isle of Wight , in
July , Mackenzie became convinced that the
disease was cancer , but lacked the moral
courage to confess his error and deliver the
pitient back to the other doctors. His fool
ish ambition to so isolate the royal patient as
to gain exclusive credit for the euro ami his
criminal lack ot moral courage , combined ,
make him responsible for the emperor's
death. Ueing unable to obtain any authentic
information from Mackenzie , and having en
tered a strong protest , the Gorman physicians
ceased to have any responsibility for the fu
ture. When the crown prince reached San
Ucmo it was already too late for the opera
tion. Mackenzie Is a weak character , easily
swayed backward and forward by conflict
ing interests. I bc'lievo he used every means
to save his reputation from the great error
he had made. He has completely lost his
reputation and place as a scientist , nnd I
would not accept his word about any matter ,
great or small , if It affected his reputation. "
Dr. Hergmann then laughed a little over
some stories illustrating this last point , nnd
dismissed the subject with an expression
showing utter contempt for any physician
capable of sacrificing even the humblest
patient rather than acknowledge his mistake
In the diagnosis of the disease.
German I'TCKH Comment * ! .
Unni.ix , July 18. The excitement created
throughout Germany by the reports of the
German doctors w'uo attended the Into Emperor
poror Frederick is intense and their critl
cisms of Dr. Mackenzie's conduct of the
case form almost the solo topic of couycrs.i
tlon. The KreuXeitinig , in Its comments
on the reports , overwhelms Dr. Mackenzie
with invectives. To the question why the
German doctors did not attempt to save the
royal patient from Dr. Mackenzie the National
Zcilung reports that according to Prussian
principles their olllcial i > osition In the tragidy
provcnlod them from making an appeal to
the public , but they did appeal to Em
peror William while the sick man was at San
Ucmo , and ono ot their number stated
the case to him without reserve.
His majesty was deeply distressed
by the recital of the circumstances ,
but answered : "My son is llfty-six years ol
ago , und the right of final decision regarding
his medical treatment cannot bo takeU from
him , " The progressist Journals , which are
Inclined to defend Dr. Mackenzie , point to tlio
fad that there were eight doctors concerned
.In the case who cld ] pot sign the reports crit-
