IGPEqUL TELEQRAM TO THE DISPJLTCH.1
, "Washington, D. C, March 1.
Inauguration snow will come
With all Its motley din.
And then the whirligig mil ham
And tarn the rascals in.
In a few more days the waves of a new
supremacy will dash up around the Capi
tol, dethroned Democratic officeholders will
i be walking the streets of "Washington in
great numbers, and the first Democratic
President which the towheaded boy of this
generation has seen, will lay down the
truncheon of power and will, therefore, be
plain "Grover Cleveland, of New York,"
or perhaps the Tim Campbells of Gotham
will call him "Grove" for short, as Bissell,
Folsom and the Buffalo boys did when they
clinked glasses together 15 years ago. With
the departure of the Democrats there will
come a motley crowd, such as Washington
has never seen before. The "original Har
rison man" will be here to bank on his
"originality" and to look after consulates
and things. The wild and woolly" West
will be represented by new faces Republi
With fur on their trousers and fur on their
Ana with No. 10 brogans chock foil of feet.
Ex-Bepublican office holders who have
'been standing at the outer gate for four
years will be here to force an early issue
with the "hold overs." Military will be
here in imposing numbers to emphasize
their love for a soldier President and their
dislike of a Democratic President, and the
big and little statesmen from "Podunk" and
"Wayback" will be here to see how it is all
done. The inauguration will be a notable
gathering, in which Jeffersonian simplicity
will not figure to any great extent. The
Republican party after a period of retire
ment and probation, is "feeling its oats," so
to sj.rjk, and pomp and circumstance will
not be wanting to give emphasis to its return
to power. The Democratic chiefs, as they
gaze back four years, and recall the earth
quake oice of victory which greeted Presi
dent Cleveland and the Democratic party,
and now look on the Democratic "wreck,"
might well exclaim with the most charming
of Yankee poets:
"Hans Bixitmanhad a bardy,
Vere is dat bardy now?"
Most of these chieftains and great Cabinet
Ministers are now past their prime and un
popular with their own party, and, in all
probability, the places that know them now,
will never know them more. Like the
Moors, on leaving the Alhambra, their
happiness will be mostly in retrospection,
while some of them, like Bayard, will be so
professionally and politically stranded,
that they may, like Sidney Smith, have to
cultivate literature on a little oatmeal.
Another party will be missed. The Mug
wump will not be here, or take any part in
this transformation scene, but he will meet
in his several assemblies and conventicles,
and appoint March 4 as a. day of general
humiliation, fasting and prayer throughout
the Dominion of Mugwumpery. He will
not bow the knee to Quay or Baal; he will
wear crape on his arm, and eat unleavened
bread as a symbol of his consuming grief,
and generally, like Rebecca, he will refuse
to be comforted. Nevertheless, the planet
will revolve on its axis regularly, the snn
will rise and set, Harrison will draw his
salary and govern this great country "by
and with the advice and consent of M. S.
Quay," and despite all these he may even
disappoint the Democratic and Mugwump
Here and there in this motley throng
there is a feeling, not strictly political, ot
sympathy for the small fry Democratic
soon to be ex-office holders, who are the
victims partly of Brice's "educational cam
paign," and partly of Quay's skilful dice
throwing in Brooklyn and elsewhere; but
this sympathy outside the pale of official
patronage, so far as my observation goes
does not extend in any degree to his out
going excellency, Grover Cleveland.
PLUCK, BUT ALAS! FOB THE JUDGMENT.
The feeling in Republican circles toward
the President is largely that of contempt for
the man his judgment, his methods, and
what they call his humbuggery, tempered
with a sort of stage admiration" for his ex
hibition of "pluck," which has given them
victory. They are quite willing to accede
that in forcing the "tariff issue" he is en
titled to the same verdict as the Irishman
who butted the locomotive "plenty of
pluck but poor judgment" As was said of
the British charge at Balaklava Cleve
land's plan it was audacious, it was
splendid, bat it was not generalship, and
"so say we all of us."
Bight or wrong, the average Democrat re
gards the President as a party "wrecker,"
and this feeling among the rank and file is
best illustrated by the remark of one Carter
Harrison, of Chicago, that no one could go
into a Democratic gathering in any bar
room in that city and get up a row by black
guarding Grover Cleveland, while among
the Democratic leadcis like Randall,
"Vance, et al., whom Cleveland endeavored
to cripple and destroy politically, the feel
ing over Grover's downfall is almost jubil
ant, PeoDle natnrallv test niihlic men lir
their professions and their acts, and here
' President suffers. His prospectus was very
'imposing his fulfillment very meager.
Harrison, en the other hand, may fail as a
reformer, but he will be judged more len
iently because he is less ostentatious in his
profession of the Spartan virtues, and this
popular test is not altogether an unfair one.
THE OBEATEST BLUNDER.
The President is a Man of Destiny and a
believer in "stars" and, therefore, unlike
other men yet it is every way certain that
he is very much like other men in this, that
he is not altogether happy over the circum
stances attending his exit His great mis
takethe source, in fact, of all his other
mistakes was in listening to the advice of
the Democratic sirens who urged him to
stand for a second term, after he had osten
tatiously proclaimed against it As a man
of sturdy common sense, he must have
known that the Democratic office holder
w'ho advised him that his policy or per
sonality were in any way necessary to the
perpetuity of the Republic, was" a selfish
triffer, chiefly intent on "holding on." Had
he invited these Democratic tempters "to
get thee behind rue," and strictly stood on
his declaration for a single term, there is
hardly room to doubt he would to-day be a
much'happier man, and instead of being a
repudiated candidate for the high office, his
name would go down the ages, along side
that of the great Roman who
Thrice was be offered the kingly crown
And thrice did he refuse,
And would have been second only to Lin
coln and Washington inpopular estimation.
Had he stood on the "high ground" origi
nally chosen, instead of descending to the
common level of a "setter-up" ot conven-
. tlons and caucuses in his own interest, and
failing, therein deploring the waywardness
, ef fate, he might in his"Farewell Address"
emphasize a great precept by a great exam
rile, and ti;a none to impeach his sincerity,
he could with high consistency have re
joiced at what Lord Macaulay calls the
"freedom from that closelv watched slavery
which is dignified by the name of power."
But it was not to be, and so Grover will
merely figure in history among the other
"Might Have Beens."
LOl THE POOR DEMOCRATS.
And the poor Democratic party, betrayed,
torn byinternal striic, stands in the position
of the "Culprit or Calaveras." "Prisoner,"
said the prosecutor, "you are charged with
gambling." i "Gambling! What is gam
bling?" "Playing cards for money." "Bui
I did not playcards for money I played
for chips.,f "Well, vou got money for your
chips at the end of the game, didn't you?"
"No; I didn't have any chips at the end of
the game." And so Mr. Brice's party got
all the "education" they wanted, and Mr.
Quay's party got all the "chips." In all
seriousness, did the "grand old party"
deserve anything better? For 24 years
everv member of that party was proscribed
from holding office from the position of
Judge of the Supreme Bench down to the
humblest floor-scrubber in a two-penny post
office, and then when the party got a chance
they were ashamed or afraid to administer
on the estate, and practically admitted the
taunting Republican accusation that they
were unfit to rule. Was it any wonder that
a party could not hold its vote on such a,
policy, and that on the first decisive test it
met its Waterloo?
There is a vague impression here in Re
publican circles that the President in the
few remaining days of his term will in
dulge in some freak of temper, as he did in
Edgprton's case, or make some "break" that
will mar the dignity of his going out, and
the refusal of the" administration "set" to
particpate in the inaugural ball is consid
ered a justification for these supicions. Now
that the President is about to take a tumble,
I cannot recall any role he could study
with more effect that that of Fanny Daven
port in "La Tosco." In the art of falling
down gracefully, Fanny is a bewildering
success, and if Grover can "fall" as grace
fully as Fanny he will be doing pretty well
for a magistrate who seems to .think it a
sign of greatness to do things differently
from other people.
After his term expires he will be in de
mand as a figure head for speculative "syn
dicates" and legal firms, but even these will
pass away, and as Congressman Butter
worth said to me to-day: "The condition
and not a theory that Mr. Cleveland will
have to face shortly will be can a man who
has ruled 60,000,000 of people and wrecked
a great political estate, submit to the des
potic will of a janitor on the top floor of a
nine-story New York flat.
On the other hand,the bed of the incoming
administration may not be strewn with
roies. Cleveland failed to please three par
ties the Democrats, Republicans and Mug
wumps. What will Harrison do with these
and the "Hold-overs, who are now "quite a
formidable fourth estate of the realm. The
secret of statesmanship these days seems to
be to do nothing and make capital out of
the mistakes of the other side. As a Sena
tor, Harrison has "trimmed" occasionally
or sdemed to "trim" and as Mr. Cleveland
has done many things in a positive way
"positively right or positively wrong," as
Civil Service Commissioner Edgerton well
says, regardless of tbeir effect on his own or
his party's prospects, he seems entitled to
credit at least for his devotion to his "idee."
It is not entirely clear that any of our
Presidents get $50 000 worth of lun out of
the office. They have a regular grind of
official and social duties to perform which
they cannot disregard. Mr. Harrison must
receive all the "boys" who have organized
Harrison clubs, or he will be considered an
ingrate. He must treat all the big chiefs
with distinguished consideration, or there
will be trouble n the family. He must en
tertain all the visiting statesmen from Po
dunk and elsewhere. He must give "taffy"'
in quantities to suit to the Irish, German
and colored delegations. He must attend
balls, diplomatic and other receptions,shoot
ing and fishing parties; visit cattle shows,
Sunday schools, blind asylums, college
openings and closings, "divide time" with
all the "sovereitrns" who call; divide ud
the political estate among the victors; study
to please all, knowing full well that at the
end of his term he will measureably fail
that he must disappoint thousands,and may
not feel altogether pleased with himself in
short, he may have to put up- the sign on
vour back: "Unredeemed pledges for sale
here," ns conspicuously as his predecessors;
and, taking one thing with another, we may
say with Longfellow that things are not al
ways what they seem.
WASHINGTON A VAST CAMP.
On leaving Pittsburg, my esteemed co
partner of other days, "Judge" Ramsey, re
marked that the present was about the mos
unpropitious time possible to see this city of
"magnificent distances," and I am here to
concur in the above. Essentially a busy
city I take it almost any time, Washington
to-day is almost a camp although the crush
and rush have not yet fully set in, and to
day looking down East Capital street toward
the grand inauguration stand crowds are
patrolling the streets in the rain, while
other crowds also in the rain are putting the
finishing touches to the monster platlorms
being erected for the sight-seers. The note
of preparation is heard everywhere, and
soon the city will be git en over to pageantry,
bustle and blare and bunting, and to the
The President-elect and his family arrived
here Tuesday, and are quietly awaiting the
"big eventful day," and judging from the
modest and thoughtful tone of his farewell
address to his neighbors at Indianapolis, he
fully realizes the measure ot his great re
sponsibilities. There be visitors here who do seem to
have been dug up by some antiquarian
from the Silurian period or the red sand
stone era of our politics, but the most pict
uresque "relic" of them all not even ex
cepting Cassius M. Clay is ex-Speaker
Banks, of Massachusetts. Were I in a
mood to debate on the vicissitudes of Ameri
can politics, I know not where I could se
lect a fitter subject to illustrate my theme.
Go back over the list of ex-Speakers since
James L. Orr laid down the gavel 28 years
ago, and Banks, Pennington, Colfax,
Blaine, Kerr. Randall, Carlisle have fol
lowed each other, till the cycle of Republi
can conservatism, as represented in Benja
min Harrison, comes round again. And
here is Banks once more to the front, and
with a true popular enthusiasm behind him.
In the long and dastardly fight waged
against Charles Sumner by Grant and his
lackeys Banks was "semper fidelis" al
ways stood stoutly at whatever risk by the
great Senator from Massachusetts, and went
down with him in the dirty freshet of Grant
ism in 1872. Gooch, Butler, Williams and
the other time servers are "broken on the
wheel," ana I feel like saying of Banks
with all his foibles:
As thou wert steadfast in one woe.
Be foremost In one joy.
For cold and still and still are they
That wrought thy friend aunoy.
To-morrow, if the rain ceases, I will take
a stroll in the environs away from the
"madding crowd" and report results.

ISrECIAI. TELEQBAM TO TBI PISPJlTCn.l
"Washington. March 1. Though pale
and fatigued, Representative Randall sat in
his seat almost every moment of to-day,
waiting for the time to come when he could
make his expected attempt to call up that
bugaboo of the closing hours of the session,
the Cowles bill. But the time did not come.
Wheh no conference report was ready to oc
cupy the House, the other bills, which
might have been postponed till doomsday,
were crowded in one after another, the
Speaker recognizing anything that would
keep the tobacco tax repeal bill out of the
Mr. Randall does not expect to accom
plish more than to test the sense of the
House on the consideration of the bill, but
whether he will get the opportunity to do
even so much is exceedingly doubtful. The
situation serves, however, to sustain a feel
ing of intense interest in the House, for no
one knows at what time the most exciting
episode of the session may occur.
