ihnself from proper investigation and to lide from public view the details of a business which is being conducted from one of the government bureaus and con cerning the character of so many and such damaging charges have been As to the charge of advance ment of pension claims for in consideration of his endorsing the com missioners the report states that no intimate frienship is shown to have existed between the commissioner and Lemon and that there were no business relations Why should a good business risk upon one who is afraid to have his solvency inquired into The completed files system was just what Lemon de and so soon as established he was ready to underwrite for the commis which he had never before though often consulted by the commis sioner about his needs during the

for apolitical speech M charged republican party racy thing no rugged integrity can approve aud no delicate sense of pro priety In conclusion the re port reads Thus it seems to us the commissioner of pensions has not prop erly esteemed the delicate duties and serious responsibilities of his great office nor has he measured up to that high standard of patriotic consideration for public service which should prevail in this adjudicating the dis bursements of nearly onethird of the entire revenues of the The pension office is altogether too sacred a place for the development of the personal thrift and enterprise manifested in this It was established that a na tion might properly care for those to whom it owes a gratitude too sacred for It is a monument to the munificence of the grateful people and its hundreds of employes should be min isters of not stock That the place thus hallowed should have been used for stock jobbing or specula tion converted into spawning place for cooperations and a stall for bartering doubtful is a reflection upon our a degradation of pub lic which we think can not be too strongly If the real and sensitive demands of the occasion be measured by the example of the forbearing who scourged from the temple the merchants and money or by the commendable conduct of President Arthur in remov ing the associate justice of tho Arizona supreme court for borrowing money of an attorney practicing before con gress must agree with us that there should be a betterment of the public service by a housecleaning in the pen sion As the majority of the
