Of tho many annual reports now he
me prepared in tho several H eueral De
partments, perhaps nono aro of such
general interest as is that of Corneals
sioner Sparks, of tho General Land
Office, which has jtiBt been submitted
to tho Secretary of tho Interior, and
which speaks more than more platform
? latitudes of the sincere desiro of the
emocrats to redeem their pledges to
reclaim and restore to tho peoplo tho
pabho domain of which Kcpublican
rapaoity and venality havo wrongfully
deprived them. Theso vast funds aro
not confined to any particular locality
but impartially and unblusbingly pene
trate and permeato every State and
Territory of tho Union, which shall for
many years to como emblazon on tho
pages of oar country's history the deg
radation and intamy ot ino most cor
rupt party of thu century.
The report in question shows that
Bince March 4, 1885, 31,824,481 acres
have been reclaimed and thrown open
to honest settlors. Tho investigation
of land entries discloses tho startling
result that 2,312 cases covering 370,
000 acres wero condemned to cancella
tion and 2,153 entries, covering about
180,000 acres wero cancelled for fraud
pure and simple. Added to this crowd
ed catalogue of crime its crowning
climax more than tivo thousand cases
have been unearthed wherein perjury
or subornation of penary has boon
committed in land transactions.
The reports of several of the bureau
officers cspeoially those of tho Land
Qffioo 'and the Pension Office, call for
an increase in their clerical force-
appearing that these two grand dvis
ions of the public service are outstrip
ping in rapid and substantial growth
all of the others with the possible ex
ception of tho extension of tho mail
service throughout the country.
Considering the number of important
and interesting coses to be adjudicated
the October term of tho Supreme Court
of the United States promises to be of
extraordinary interest. First in mag
nitude is the trial of the Virginia State
officials imprisoned by United States
Judge Jiond tor alleged contempt ot
court in the celebrated "coupon crush
er" cases, as this unheard ot proceed
ing involves a grave contstitutional
question in regard to the relation of
the State and National Governments,
Then there are the famous Bell tele
phone oases, the case of the Frellar
murdur at St. Louis with a strong
probability that the fate of the Chicago
anarchists will also be decided.
Among the bills to be introduced in
Congress next session will be seven on
pension legislation, prepared under the
auspices of the Grand Army of the
Republic, with the purpose of provid
ing aid for all soldiers who saw actual
service. But if Congress should be
weak enough to sanction su6h a whole
sale raid on tho Treasury, President
Cleveland will again stand like a stone
wall between that body oi designing
politicians with a tew honorable ex
ceptions and the coveted cotters of
great and generous people.
Another measure that comes near
the peoplo will be the introduction of
a bill providing for the licensing of
railway engineers and conductors the
objeot being to obtain for such service

men and thus secure the safety of the

Tho inadenuaov of any law that is
obnoxious to pnblio sontlmcnt is gon
orally apparent through its frcquont
violations and evasions, wo mow oi
no statuto to-day moro porploxlngly
Inadequate than tho still-oorn enact
ment known as tho Civil Servioo Re
form law. It is Innocently presumed
to effect tho purification of tho publlo
servica by legalizing tho oiuoo to tno
meritorious incumbent for time without
end, and without regard to his politics
or religion. It is ostensibly n political
purther, but really a political ucmorai
zer and disorganize!, becauso oi its
Inconsistonoy. The incoming Admin
istration, for instance, may not bar-
inonizo its appointments or its oiuccs
with tho sovereign will of tho people
that elected it! Tiut. howover narrow
its margin of votes may havo been, it
is simply permitted to gaze upon too
onemy in oflico undo it, remembering
that this enoroy inherited the office, so
to speak, octoro tnis Auminisirauou
was born, and because of this legal en
actment, whioh does not even distran
chiso him, ho must bo permitted to ro
moin, and turned over to tho next Ad
ministration along with tho chairs, car
pets, spittoons and other furnituro. It
does not offend the truth nor mend tho
matter to sav tho law is cvasivo and is
Itself oyadod and it is but tho truth
to say it was inspired by offico-holding
politicians, without regard to party, as
a matter of personal convenience in
evading their friends after office. It
never emanated trom tho true source,
the sovereign power, tho people, nor it
nover will. Our law-makers conceived
it, or they evidently copied it from tho
English Civil Service, and such as it
is wo havo with a vongeanco. It is
simply a legal subterfuge for our pub
lic men who aro troubled wun piace
hunters. Only this, and nothing more.
No doubt they thought to enact it and
apply it by stealth, as it were, ana wen
cultivate public sentiment at leisure
through the medium of tho Civil Ser
vice Reform League, of which the.
scholarly George Vm. Curtis is the
able exponent. As a Iittlu Mugwump,
and at the risk of being squelched by
this big Mugwump, or somebody else,
wo must protect against it in behalf
of popular government. How far tho
Administration has succeeded in apply
ing and enforcing this law, and how
far public sentiment has been cultivated
in its favor you will learn in full when
the next campaign opens: tor the re
port, or rather the lament, of Mr. Cur
tis, is, we fear, misleading in some
particulars, while in others be seems
frank enough to say over the grave of
his hobby, (while the Administration
stands with uncovered head as chief-
mourner,) "let thoso who have tears to
shed prepare to shed them. His re
port is as peculiarly arttul as be knows
how to make it,and his ominous silence
on the practical effects of thus attempt
ing to innoculate a little monarchical
virus into our Republican body politic
is quite apparent. This noxious law is
erroneously supposed to be the very
pinnacle of Mugwump desire, big and
ittle. iiut such is not the case ; tor
rather the effort of the Mugwump or
stalwarts it you please was the very
thing they accomplished, viz. the de-
teat of the Unplumed llnigbt beoauso
ot bis treoobery in politics and relig
ion. Admitting the practical failure of
the law, Mr. Curtis' marked ability
alone enables him to close its grave
respectfully while he affectionately
wipes the falling tear from the eye of
the President. Now, we need not
doubt the sincerity of either the Presi
dent or Mr. Cards as political reform
ers ; but we may doubt the utility of
tho law as applied to our system of
government and we may oondemn it
inconsistent, it nothing worse, end
as creativo of greater ovils than it pre
tends to avert. Under the Cavil Ser
vice plan of ease to law-makers and of
salvation to office holders we fanoy wo
seodefeots and intolerable infringments
upon our .sovereign rights, and benoe
these tears. Regarding tho law as
offensive to the genius of our popular
government, in the hrst place, wo think
experience demonstrates its impractica
bility. I. J. J.

Lions in a Terrible Fight-
TEARING TIIK.MSEI.VE3 in pieces until
death ends the battle.
London, Ootober 18. Early this
morning there was a fearful and ex
citing battle in tho Jubileo Exhibition
at Liverpool. Delmonico, tho most
plucky tamer of beasts in this country,
has been exciting tho nerves of the
visitors for a long time by trifling in
cage with three big forest lions. Fivo
more uons oi a uiuereut kidu, out un
fierce and full grown, arrived from
Africa yesterday and were put at once
into the big cago with tho three al
ready there. They had no training.
but Delmonico went in among them
and thrilled the crowd that filled the
menagerie by an unusually sensational
performance. When no had done Alllo.
Kora, his partner, went iu with the
lions and took a little dog with her.
This was repealed four times during
the day and the five new lions were
too much stunned by tho hugo, noisy
crowd about them and the repeatod
visits of the man, woman and dog to
do anything but crouch.in their corners
Their astonishment had not worn off
and they wero still quiet when left
alone for to-night by tho attendants at
10 o clock. Shortly alter midnight,
however, the menagerio was filled with
a frightful roaring and snarling, and a
servant sleeping on the premises rush
ed in to find the big iron cage rooking
and eight lions fighting furiously.
They were rolled up into a huge dark
ball, from whioh blood-Btained fur was
flying in all directions. Tbo huge
beasts rolled over and over, dashing
madly against tbo sides of the cage
and biting pieces out of eaoh other
with a ferocity that was sickening. All
the sights organized to gratify man's
fondness for fighting would have seem
ed the tamest child's play in comoari
son. After a while it becamo evident
that there were distinct sides in the
battle and that the new arrivals were
pitted at unfair odds against the lions
who had beon in possession.
The efforts of the servant to separate
them only increased their fury. At
last he rushed off for Delmonico, who
was asleep near by. The tamer ar
rived half clad, and found his lions
bleeding fearfully, but still fighting,
The battle narrowed down to a duel
between tho two biggest lions, which
wero rapidly biting eaoh other to pieces
in the middlo of the cago. Occasion
ally it became general and lor a tew
seoonds there would bo a wild jumble
among tho snarling lions, with a sav
age crunching of teeth to tell how flesh
was being torn.
The appearance of Delmonico with
a red-hot iron in his hand produced
immediate effect. All but the two
chief combatants stopped fighting and
crouched sullenly down, licking their
bloody wounds and snarling encourage
ment to the two leaders. Uu these in
their rage hot iron was useless, even
when applied to raw flesh. They re
sponded to the burning sensation only
by tearing at eaoh other moro fiercely,
At last Delmonico bravely entered tb
oage, half clad as he was, and shut
himself in. lie next opened the door
communicating with the second cage
and drovti into it like so many sheet).
the six lions that had been looking
Meanwhile the other lions were still
fighting, although much weaker. Del
monicoe's attempts to separate them
wero useless. They paid not the
slightest attention to him, and, al
though in their straggle they dashed
against him, they wero evidently un
ooncious of his presence. Before tho
tamer oould form any plan to separate
them the fight endod of itself. The
big forest lion rolled over on his baok
and died, while the other gavo a faint
roar of victory. Tho dead lion was
terribly mangled, while tho viotor's
mane was goue and his body looked as
though an especially wicked harrow
had been repeatedly dragged over it
Blood trickled from a hundred ugly
wounds, and there is little hope that
ho will live.
