III active political life iheio Is absolute
ly no pxcusp for thp shadow of a fct'eat

this advanced ns iho reason for the se
lection of one man to the presidency,
llip appointment of others to important
diplomatic positions and of the choice
of sous as successors to their fathers in
coiiBress. . Tho history of the Hayards,
of Delaware, of tho t'anolls, of Alary
land, the Wises, of Virginia, mid the
J iroekini'idfres, of Kentucky, furnish Il
lustrations of the power of historic
names In wooIiik voters, not always In
fallible and not always productive of tho
best results, to tho country or the state,
and the recent suggestion 0f n ticket
by two historic names lit a presidential
campaign is an example of the ends to
which somp peoplu will go In thin direc
tion. The tendency nowaday, though, does
not concern so much elective otllces as
those tilled by appointment. I'nder ono
administration since, tho war the prac
tice of appointing to otnee one's rela

word nepotism a decidedly unpleasant
pound. Hut if the blue book, the rolls
of West I'oint and Annapolis, the diplo

should be carefully studied, It would not
bo surprising to discover that, while the

lice because of thalr kinship with others
havinff tho appointing power, or with
those who formerly drew salaries from
the government, and If the truth could
be revealed. It might be found that
many otllces were created for the ex
press purpose of providing for some
relative at the public expense. The
trouble Is not that the Incumbents may
not bo just as competent as if they were
not the sons or nephews of persons who
have attained high positions in the
government, and not that they are to
to ,be blamed for accepting positions,
which they would have no possibility
of-holding were they not fortunate in
paternity, but it lies In the fact thut
public men can bring themselves to be
lieve that the public service Is to be
benefited by the employment of their
kinsfolk to the exclusion of others.
An aristocracy of office-holding is not
democracy in its broad or narrow sense;
against It true Americanism revolts,
but that it is not more prominent in
W ashington and in the channels Mow
ing from tho capital Is probably not be
cause there are not persona of the privi
leged class to till the otllces, but because
as yet public opinion has not developed
such callousness on the subject us to
penult the practice to be unlimited.
