Signal Statistical Triumph Achieved by

"If I ntn inndo superintendent of the
census I shall hnvo but two objects In view
in trying to nclilovo a reputation for myself
mid solving the Rovcrnmcnt. They shall bo
to make the most complete mid comprehen
sive census over prepared , for tbo least pos
sible cost , mid to demonstrate that ono man
looks upon the position for something clso
than a salary of M.OUO a year. "
This Is what Mr. Uobort P. Porter said to
your correspondent some tlrau buforo ho was
called from the editorship of the Now York
Press to begin a HMO of duties which nro
probably as vexations as those of any found
under the federal government employ. That
Superintendent Porter has achieved his aim
there ran bo no doubt. Ho has beaten all
records before him. Ily the end of July ho
will lay before the president a complete com
pendium of the eleventh census
at least three -years in advance of the
tlmogllt has ever been done by any other
superintendent. Of course the work in the
census bureau is not all done , and thiru will
be much of a clerical character to do for two or
thrco yours ; but whan the compendium Is
complete the work remaining will consist of
putting the result of the vast labor In the
He'd ' and bureau into shnpo for the printer-
laying before the country the result of the
Air. Porter may remain hero some
years before resuming his duties In
private life ; but the reputation ho has
made will cling to him throughoutlifa. What
hq bus accomplished Mill no doubt bo pointed
to for very many years by olllccrs in other de
partments as the results of unselfish deter
mination , as Mr. Porter s'.Id ' ho did not
tiiko the ofllcc merely to draw a'.alary , for ho
rould get u larger our , much uaslcr" In pri
vate life. Few people have any Idea
what perplexities a superintendent
of the census has to meet and
overcome In order to bo successful. The re-
picsslon of the political influence brought
from mon in congress and elsewhere In the
appointment of nearly Jlfty thousand enumer
ators und almost four thousand clerks in the
bin can hero is nothing In comparison to the
annoying suggestions and influences In the
performance of routine and other duties. Mr.
Potter , who is physlcallv as well as mentally
o very strong man , came near being broken
down > n hculth , working night and day to
achieve what ho has accomplished. And j'et
ho Is not appreciated by his political adver
There nro pre-eminently four positions
under the government which pay salaries of
trMH ( ) each w htcu carry with them the mini
mum of credit and the maximum of duties.
Thcv are the superintendent , of the census ,
public prin tprchlef , of the bureau of engraving
and printing , anu commissioner ot pensions ,
and the president probably has more trouble
in keeping these positions filled l > y capable
men than any dozen of other ofllccs. They
deal with politicians , claimants , labor and
jobbers. It U next to an impossibility to
please all these elements. And if they arc
taken by men who simply want the salaries
the olllccs carry , more is the pity for all.
The accomplishments of Superintendent
Porter has called attention again to the fact
that the man who accepts a position in any
degree extensive in character earns his sal
ary if ho fills it well. Another fact is becom
ing apparent in this same connection. Tbo
outside world cannot bo depended upon for
tbo least moral support ' .a an oITort to 1111 an
oflico acceptably. All of the occupants of the
positions named boar testimony to the fact
that the outs are Indifferent as to the ins , and
that every oHlcor of the government must
Btand upon his own jnerits.
It comes In private malls from New York
that Mr. Cleveland will attempt to guido a
compromise on the stiver question when congress -
gross convenes and the flood-tide of bills is
open to the cranks who are to control tbo
next bouse.
Mr. Cleveland Is trying hard to head off
the change In sentiment on the question of
his nomination. Ho wants the nomina-
tlou very much , nnd bo fears a solid
south nnd anlncorrlglblo on the fluan-
T > W question. Ills idea is somewhat lilte
thatxjroposod recently by his ox-secretary of
the treasury , Mr. Falrchitd. It is the free
purchase , but not the frco coinage of silver.
Ho .vants a scheme which will buy the bul
lion so long as it remains popular , but stop
when sentiment culls a nult. Ho' would coin
when there Is a demand and it Is nt
par , but shut down altogether when there Is
evidence of n corner or a movement from any
foreign nations Indicating a disposition to
impoverish our supply otgold. This would
make silver u nonentity as a political factor.
It would plvo Mr. Cleveland nnd his party
another opportunity to straddle th\ ( question
All propositions of this character contem
plate the placing ot the coinage question
wholly within the discretion of the Secretary
of the treasury , nnd they nro thrroforo bo <
youd question , BO far ns congress Is con
cerned. Several attempts have been made
during the past few years to enlarge the pur
chase of silver bullion , nnd all have been
turned down without consideration If they In
any degree gave tno secretary larger dis
. , cretionary powers. Sllvcf mnn especially
deplore this ouo thing of making uncertain
the quantity purchased or the breadth of
coinage. That is the one thing they demand
Bhnll bo definite. Mr. Cleveland again shows
his inutlllty.
As soon ns U was announced , the other
day , that Judge Advocate General Swalm of
the army had laid his iiiso botoro the presi
dent and was trying to have his sentence
changed In some way , the people of Wash
ington exclaimed that It might well bo hoped
that the president himself would give this
case n thorough overhauling , for the bcnclit
of court-martial proceedings in future.
The case of Judge Advocate General
Swnlm piosonts a typo of evil which has
been n curse to army and navy courts-mnr-
tlal for many years , and which now prevails
to an nlarnilng extent. It Is that , no matter
s \ \ bat an onicor Is charged with , nud uo mat
ter how guflty ho may bo proven , and no
matter what action the court may take , ho Is
not deprived of his salary. The oQl-
cors not under allegation do not want
to sot the precedent of sentencing nn oftlcor
in such a manner as to make It necessary for
him to have to hustle like other men for n
living. No matter what his crime may be.
the government owes him n salurv , ' nnd
though ho bo bout to the penitentiary hu is
entitled to draw that salnrv. Ttwt Is un
questionably the guiding spirit. It has at
tracted attention in every locality whore
courts-martial nio frequent ,
Cicncrul tiwnlni was charged with not payIng -
Ing u debt Incurred In grain or stock specu
lation. The charges wcro brought by a man
who has since'become n bankrupt'and re
pudiated outright nil his financial obligations.
Just what jnnrul turpitude thcro was In a
man not settling , to butt the taste ot his
bicker , n question of debt which could not
be agreed upon between broker and ofllcor
lias not yet been determined , and no ono has
yet been gblo to see what place It had
before a court-niurtiiil. But General Sualm
was suspended liom duties as Judge advocate
cencnil for n period which would take him
beyond the ago when ho must bo retired and
tontcnccd to draw half or two-thirds pay.
The sentence nt once attracted nd verso criti
cism throughout the country. Swnlm was
appointed bv Prcsldcnttiurficld from private
life for service lu th6 volunteer army during
the war. Ills selection was n sore disap
pointment to the West Pointers , and his
career from thq day of appointment was ono
of distress. Ho was fiurly hamstrung by
the officers under him. If ho was guilty
of dishonest transactions In private
life , he was unfit to hold any position , and
j'ihould hnvo been dismissed from the service
entirety , was the verdict of all who followed
the proceeding * of the court-martial. If bo
was entitled to draw any pay ho was entitled
to have full pay. To tuapend him oa the
court did meant to suspend the ofllco , for
tvlmo tbo onlccr was under suspension no one
could bo appointed to HU It , slnco the oflico
"WIM not vacant. Thcro has been a real va
cancy over slnco the court sat , nbout
live or six years ago , but un
less action Is tnkrm by tno presi
dent it cannot bo filled for years to como.
Ootiorul Swalm draws the salary , no ono can
perform the duties of the ofllco. Ho Is
marked for retirement , but cannot retirevol
untarily or otherwise.
Thnro is a general fooling that extendsout-
sldo of Washington that this U a good sea
son nnd opportunity to sot nn example of
some kind to courts-martial , and no ono Is
hotter fitted than the blo luwycr. distin
guished soldier nnd unprejudiced chief ex
ecutive that has the case In hand.

1 ho city council met In committee of the
whole last night to consider the question of
lights for thu suburban portion of the city.
Chairman Mad > en of the committee on gas
and electric lights was absent. Deputy Clerk
nibcrson was appointed to bring him before
ho commlttoto. The delayed the meeting
nearly an hour. Finally he was brought
forward , but was not ready to report. Ho
wanted to wait until next Tuesday night.
While ho was talking the electric lights in
tbo council cnamoer ournod low and died
out. For fifteen minutes the councilinon
throw paper wads nnd called for Suporlu-
dent Wiley. After the light bad been turned
on a report from the comptroller was read.
Of the levy for lighting U shows that fibS , -
) S 6.02 has uocn expended , leaving a balance
of (40,014.03 on baud.
Mndson insisted upon postponing action
atll next Tuesday night. A number of
members protested , stating that a number of
postponements have bvrn had.
Osthon was elected chairman and tbo mem-
jers talked against tlmo until 10 o'clock ,

During the progress of the raoetltie

Weight of the NcW. Party.
The Jacksontnn club mot in Pabst's hall
last evening to transact a lot of business In
cidental to 1U organization And also to dis
cuss the nttltudo-that the now people's party
bears toward the democratic party.
T. J. Mahoney was the principal speaker.
Ho declared that the alliance platform had
much In common with democratic principles ,
but In ono or two particulars leaned toward
republican Idea ; . Ho thought that from
principal It was n good thing , ns It
would tend to the frco and general
discussion of old and niw Ideas ,
and it Is also a good thing from n standpoint
of policy , as It can last but a few campaigns
at most , und Its members will then naturally
gravitate Into the democratic ranks. Ho ex
pected It would bo successful In n few states
this fall , nnd possibly in 1SW. Ho oven
would admit that the new Tarty mlirtit cota
few of the electoral votes , but It wouldn't
cut any figure. Ho fully expected to sec an
alliance supreme Judge elected in Nebraska
this fall. Ho was , however , opposed to
fusion in any form , nndantcd the democrats
to stand or fall by their principles without
any unholy combinations. Ho declared that
the fusion In the Second congressional
district last fall was what Idst the state
tlciiet to the democracy , as It resulted in no
democratic county tickets being placed In the
field In sixteen of the twenty-two counties In
that district , which led to the abandonment
of n party light there.
W. S. Shoemaker seconded Mnhonoy's
Ideas but didn't want to antagonize tbo al
liance too much , yet thought Is best to let
the new party know that the democrats wcro
J. J. O'Connor took Issue on the non-fusion
idea nnd argued that anything was better
than allowing the republicans to win , nnd
cited Instances where fusion had boon suc
cessful. ills plan was to fuse by holcsalo
In the alliance strongholds , capture Kansas ,
Nobiaska , South Dakota and Minnesota in
Ib'JIi , throw the election Inton democratic
housu of representatives and boost a demo
crat Into the white house.
Tbo speakers nil announced that they had
given tbo subject llttlo thought and didn't
know anything about it , but wore willing to
express crude ideas for crystallzatlon in the
brains of their auditors.
Exciting Eplsodo on n Hanscom Park

All this disturbance Vas3causcd by the
derailing of a Hanscom p'urk motor train

enworth and Twenty-sixth. „ streets. The

CHICAGO , Juno Kl. I
For digging gold from the mines of Mada
gascar the natives are paid 10 cents per day.
On account of this Francisco Natoro , the
agent of the big manufacturing lirm of
Frazer & Chalmers of .this city , found it im
possible \ sell any mining machinery when
ho visited the Island for that purpose ro-
ccntly. .
"I made the mine owners much lower
rates than wo are accustomed to ? ccclvo In
this country , " said ho , "but they said they
didn't want any labor saving machinery at
that rate , because the labor Itself was so
much cheaper. I enlarged on the advantages
of ono of our pneumatic drills and quoted a
very low figure for it , but the mining super
intendent to whom I talked said ho could
h'.ro a man to drill for a lifetime for the
same amount of money. "
As un Illustration of the value of money
In the eyes of these dark-sklnnud laborers ,
Mr. Natero told how eighteen of them
lost their lives In an attempt
to earn 2 cents per day ndvatico
on their regular stipend. One of these mines
exhibited symptoms of caving in and thirty
of the mon'weni to the supeilntetulent of the
mine and complained that It was hazardous
to work there. The superintendent being
unable to nllav their alarm by argument ,
said ho would give any man who would \\ork
there the munlllcont salary of 12 cents per
day. Unable to resist such an offer , so un
precedented In Its liberality , eighteen of the
men came forward and went to work in the
mine. A few days later It caved in and all
of them were killed. Tbo comp my dug them
out lit its lolsuro and turned them over to
filends and relatives for burial. Mr. Natoro
says so far as lie could learn they never have
any labor demonstrations in Madagascar and
strikes are unit Mown.
