We too often forgive a great ileal- of the Mu�rt ronlings of public men in order to recognize some striking characteristic of ability. Should we not make it necessary for our political leaders to demand a dean, unsullied character, as well us ability in the men th�y chose as advisers? One of the great parties of this country has -been great ly strengt'henod by the recent disappearance from its ranks of men, in whom the rank and Alo had lost confidence. Maybe tl>e insinuations that had been levelled against these men were groundless but whether they wore or not tho people rondo it clear that ovon the iwrsnnnl weaknesses of men would not lie forgiven even for the sake of recognized great ability.
