The National Civil Service Reform
Longuo hold its annual mooting In Phil
adelphia yostqrday , nnd the president ,
Mr. George William Curtis , reviewed
the course and condition ot the reform
for the year , as ho has done regularly
for a number ot yours. It is hardly
necessary to say that Mr. Curtis h not
satisfied with the situation. Ho has
never boon. It is qulto possible ho
never will bo. Ho charges that the
prosldont has not fulfilled the pledges
of the republican platform nor
carrlod out his own protestations of a
purpose to advance reform. Ho
cites in support ot this charge
the fact of the removal of fifteen thou
sand fourth class postmasters , the alarm
which pervades every branch of tlio
service , the open , flagrant contempt for
public opinion , for private Information ,
nnd for the party promise , which wns
shown in the appointment of the Into
commissioner of pensions , the execu
tive refusal to apply the civil service
rules to the census service , the removal
of pubKo olllcers of clmrncor , ability
and oxpsrionco who had disregarded of
fice , nnd the general political proscrip
tion. All this Mr.Curtis assorts was a dis
tinct violation of the plodgcs of the
president nnd of the party. -
Lot it bo granted that this is n some
what sovcro indictment , was there no
warrant for any part pi the course of
tlio present administration in its re
movals ; from olllco ? Of course Mr. Cur
tis attempts to show there was not , but
in orJor to do this it is necessary to ut-
torlylgnoro the course of the preceding
administration , during its closing
months particularly. The effect of
that course was not only to do
a great deal of injustice to cap-
nblo and experienced republicans ,
very few if any ot whom had boon
offensive- partisans , but to very nearly
demoralize more than one branch of the
public service. It was certainly the
duty of the now administration to restore -
store ofHcioncy where it had been de
stroyed , and in order to do this it was
largely necessary to return to their
positions the exporieucod and competent
men who had been displaced in response
to the demands of party expediency.
Perhaps in the matter of the removal of
fourth class postmasters the pres
ent administration has boon un
necessarily vigorous , but the fact
must bo berne in mind that
there was most urgent need
of reform in the entire postal service ,
and it is more than probable that there
was a better thaii partisan reason forre-
novitig- most of the Fifteen thousand
fourth class postmasters who have boon
Mr. Curtis notes a growing senti-
nent among republicans hostile to civil
service reform , but lie does not despair
of final victory. "Delays nnd defeats
ire inevitable , " no remarks , "but tem
porary. The advance is sure. The
thunders of the church did not persuade
aliloo that the earth did not
move , and the war of the party
machine and the gross viola
tion of public pledges by the president ,
the postmaster general , by senators and
representatives in congress , by party
committees and local leaders , all of
which wo have hoard and seen before ,
do not convince us thnt the reform sen
timent of the country is not stronger
every day. " This sort ot faith is n'oe-
essary to a reform loader , but if Mr.
urtis has lost confidence , as his ad
dress implies , in the republican party
as the party of reform , his hooo of final
victory for the cause in which ho
labors has a very unsafe and uncertain
resting place.
The congress , or conference , of the
iVmoricas , which will assemble and or
ganize in Washington to-day , has a
comprehensive programme to consider
when it shall meet t for deliberation.
Tlio net authorizing and providing for
the congress designates eight principal
subjects for its consideration. These
are : Measures that shall loud to pre
serve the peace and promote the pros
perity of the several American states ;
measures toward the formation of an
American customs union , under which
the trade of the American nations with
each other shall , BO far as possible and
profitable , bo promoted ; the establish
ment of regular and frequent communi
cation between the ports of the seven-al
American states and the ports of each
other ; the establishment of a uniform
system of customs regulations for each ,
embracing importation , exportation ,
port duos , classification nnd valuation
of imports , invoices and quarantine ;
uniform weights and measures , patents ,
copyrights , trade marks and extra
dition ; n common legal tender silver
coinugn ; the arrangement of a definite
plan ot arbitration of all questions' uis-
putos and differences that may now or
horoaftar exist between the several
countries , with a view to their peace
able settlement and the prevention of
wars ; the conservation of the general
wolfiiro of all the American states.
There is material enough in this pro
gramme to render the deliberations of
the congress profoundly interesting ,
but undoubtedly other subjects will bo
presented to its attention. The com
mercial bodies of the United States
were invited by the secretary of state
to suggest mutters for considera
tion properly within the scope ot
the conference , and numerous sugges
tions from this souico are to bo ox-
poctod. The subjects to bo considered ,
as provided for in tlio act authorizing
the congress , are worthy of more than u
passing reflection. They contemplate
an alliance so comprehensive , and to bo
made so close , as to give a now and
more impressive Meaning to the Mon
roe doctrine. They propose the attain
ment of what would virtually make
united states ot the three Americas , ue
there would be affected between
thorn everything essential to theii
common safety and prosperity. A
careful study of the scheme
involved in thla programme for the
consideration ot the congress ot the
Americas la necessary to an under
standing of its magnitude and fur'
reaching consequences. It has boon
truly suit ! that no statesman of tlio century
tury ever evolved n more magnillconl
scheme , and it is bocauno of its magni
tude und facopo that many believe it inv
possible of consummation. Perhaps the
result will Justify this skepticism. It
may not bo possible to bring nil the in
dependent nations of this hemisphere
into such an nllianco us is
contemplated and surround It
with conditions assuring lla flormn-
nonce , but it Is certainly practicable
to attain n part of the results gbught ,
nnd the least important of thorn would
bo a material gain. And every stop
leading to ft closer union between
American nations will render the next
Btop loss dlfllcult.
However far shortof the expectations
ot Us promoters the qongrbss which
moots to-day may come , there can bo no
doubt that its deliberations will have
sotno good results in which all the In
terested nations will share.
The great cotton "corner" which
has boon n source ot great ex
citement nnd anxiety in Liver
pool nnd throughout the cotton
manufacturing district of England for
weeks past , experienced a complete col
lapse on Monday. The full consequences
have not yet been learned , but it ap
pears certain that the speculator who
engineered the corner , Stonnstrnnd ,
came out badly hurt , nnd with him , of
course , a number of others whom ho
had induced to believe thnt ho could
force n price on cotton which would en
rich everybody on his side of the mar
ket. A wnok ago it certainly looked as
if ho might hnvo matters his own way ,
and knowing ones were figurine that on
the last day of September Stuonstrand
would probably bo nblo to nnma figures
for cotton thnt would put nt least n mil
lion dollars in his pocket , while nt the
same time driving some of these wno
wore lighting him to the wall. But
there wore shrewd and busy minds at
work to defeat the speculator , nnd
aided by the concerted action :
ot the manufacturers in largely
reducing their demands , they
succeeded in doing this. The details
of this most remarkable attomnt in
eight years to corner the cotton mnrKot
will bo awaited with interest.
Sto en strand'3 speculation was an ad
vantage to the cotton planters of the
United Slates. It enabled them to sell
a largo part of their ourly crop at full
prices. Between the first of August
nnd the first of October the southern
planters sold nearly n million bales of
the crop , and the artificial price in Liv
erpool has given these planters two and
n half million dollars moro than they
othcrwiso would have received. It was
a part of this cotton that broke the
corner , and ns the American product is
now going forward freely , nnd the crop
ia exceptionally large , there is little
probability that Stccristviuid will renew
his speculation.
The folly of coyiorato indifToronco testate
state laws is illustrated by the unbroken
series of victories won by the authori
ties of Iowa ever the railroads. Ever
since the f-imous "Granger laws" were
enacted the railroads have resented
every effort of the people to restrain
their rapacity and curb the power ac
quired or assumed during the settle
ment period. These laws \voro practi
cally the first attempt of u western state
to curb corporate greed. " They were
justified by existing conditions ,
and were essential to the well
being of the state. It is true
they were radical iu design and difficult
to execute , but they opened the way to
the present comprehensive laws which
place Iowa in advance ot her neighbors
in the regulation of internal commerce.
At the outset the corporations scoffed
at legal interference. They deluded
themselves with the notion that they
could obtain protection in the conduct
of business from a state whoso laws they
attempted to nullify. They stood in the
light of law-breakers until the courts
ntllrmod the right of states to regulate
internal affairs. Open resistance was
no longer wise nor politic. They
adopted a policy of delay and subterfuge -
fugo , only to meet defeat in every case
brought to trial.
The fodor.vl court ol the Iowa district
recently added to the list of notable
victories scored by the state. The Wabash -
bash company , having abandoned the
operation of the Clarinda branch , was
ordered by the bonrQ. of railroad com
missioners to operate the road. An ap
peal to the federal court resulted in a
decision declaring that railroads were
government institutions , public convey
ances and common carriers. "The
right to build a road through private
property , " says the court , "was granted
on the representation that tlio road
would furnish transportation for the
Public. Courts have no right to deprive
the people of this transportation on the
showing that the road does not
pay expenses. By obtaining the right
of way from the pcoplo they were cut off
from all othot similar moans of trans
portation , und the company is obligated
to fulfill its pledges by operating the
road. "
The decision practically settles a
number of similar cases. It alllrms the
right of the state to compel the opera
tion of brunches which the companies
abandoned as a species of ro von go for
the passage ot stringent laws. The im
portance of this ruling lies in t.ho
declaration that the exorcise of the
right of eminent domain by corpora
tions is in the nature of a contract with
the btato. Tlioy acquire private prop
erty for a public purpose , and are bound
to use it for such purpose until the
state consents to a release.

NEW YonK , Oct. 1. [ Special Telegram
to THH BBB. ] It has become known that
Sheriff Flack's corrupt action , out of whicb
have grown the indictments of himself und
friends , was caused by a desire to legitimize
a son by Mrs. Raymond , who is studying to
become an Episcopalian clergyman. For
seventeen years Flack led a double life nnd
no one kutnv of it. In East Filty-soveuth
street he was James A. Fluck. Twenty
blocks uway , only ono mile from the home
of his wife and hfr son , ho was Mr. Huy-
mend , and no ono suspected the Intrigue.
In 18S5 be was elected shorift of the county ,
put Into office by nearly two hundred thou
sand votes. Where was the keenness of the
enemies lie had bafllcd politically that they
did not scent tno social crimu ho had com
mitted ? His dual life in all likelihood
would forever have been u secret had Mrs.
Havmond , once a cirl ' m his bindery , but for
twenty yearn his' niistrcba , not tuucii sick ,
fallen deeply religious , and determined
on making u preacher of her illegit'nmlo ' son
by Flack. At ono time during the Illness ,
when she thought hcrsolf near death , she
made Flack promlso to bring the boy up to
the ministry.
After Mrs. Raymond recovered she became -
came very religious , und in New York and
other places busied herself about charitable
works. Her almost fatal illness brought
homo to her moro viviilly than anything else
could thu kind of u lilo she hud been lead
ing for so many years. She yearneu to
legitimize her sou , und to become u wife iu
fact as well as in numo. Hut there , right in
tbo way , stood that fiiuy-liairod woman who
hud done her no wrotii ? , but who hail been
thu cheerful helpmeet of James A. FInulc
in his early struggles und ambitions * Yet a
motner's ' Jove for her only son overcame
every scruple. She urged Flack to get a
divorce from his wife by any menus , 'llion
followed the Iniquitous proceedings of the
secret dlvorco.

Ing parties , Henry Brown and Miss Mary

Stnta Senator J. K. Sutherland , of Tolcit
mnb , under dnto ot September 25 , addressed
the following lollop to W. S. Gurbor , score-
tar.y of the slate boiml of transportation :
"Inra not satisfied with the action , or
rnthor lack of notion , on the part of the
bonrd of transportation , with respect to thnt
lK > rilon of the Sutherland-Manning vs Chi-
cngoLbt. Puul , Minneapolis & Omiilm com
pany complaints , relating to llvo stock rules.
I Infer from newspaper reports of the pro
ceedings of the board , Billing In review of
i'our rouort nnd opinion upon- these cases ,
thnt the meeting was adjourned wltnont tak
ing formal action on the recommendation
thnt nil roads , operating lines from tntorlor
points In the stututo Oiuaun , bo cited before
the board to show cause why their rates on
shipments of llvo stock should not bo ro-
iluced to correspond with rules on Kansas
roads , lo Kansas City markets , for corro-
spending distances : neither huvu I been able
to discover Unit action has boon titkon ut any
subsequent sitting of the board.
"It Is my purpose to again present to the
board the unjustncss of our llvo stock rates
of transportation to homo markets , compared
with tbo rales in force uudur similar condi
tions in territory adjacent to our state , and
In comparison with rates in effect several
yours back , since which ttmo there hns boon
BO marked a falling oil in the marketable
values of uattlo without any proportionate
Uocrcuso In the trufllc ; and for this latter
reason , If no other , there is well grounded
reasons for concessions in the carriers'
" 1 shall renew the comnlaint with the
prospect that , stripped of screening issues ,
no member of the board will longer roluso to
recognize a duty owlngto n people entitled to
relief from unjust corporate exactions.
"Now , Mr. Gnrber , that all sections of the
state may boulToraed measure of relief
due to it in the light of facts capable of pres
entation , mid that uo one line of rend muy bo
contlncd to schedules of maximum charges
while other lines , engaged in similar tratllc ,
are loft unrestricted in Iholr exactions , I pro
pose arraigning thoscliudulcsof all Nebraska
roads currying live stock to the Oiuutia
market : and to this end I would request of
you n statement containing such details of
rates now in ettoct for the Omaha and Kan
sas City markets for Hue distances from
points in Nebraska and Kansas , ns will
unable mo to petition the bo ird with the bust
prospects of the matter receiving thorough
consideration and evoking an early and fa
vorable decision. "
In accordance with the above the secretary
has compiled the desired tables of rates from
charts nnd tabling winch ho lias recently
worked up with n view to again submitting
to tno board recommendations backed by ad
ditional facts , with respect to obvious dis
criminations in our stock rates of transpor
tation , and those tables nnd additional information
mation pertinent to tbo question he will send
along to the senator us n basis of complaint.
'J lie public ! can conlidenlly look forward to
considerable activity in rate regulation In
the near future. A considerable ) number of
petitions nro soon to bo filed with the board ,
their object being u > secure to the public
needed relief from the excessive tolls of the
carrying corporations. The members of the
board will have to show the good people of
what stuff they are mado.
