viift. as the olliolal list Is. it represents
only ano ", iiiK of the army over which
the siicl ins of the Wigwam have been
grudur.ly fastening their control. That
in the disciplined wing, upon which
the strategists of Fourteenth street
rested most serenely oonlldeiit in their
assaults ujion the public purse and
private nccunmulutloiis. Their horde
if unofllclal tributaries were undis
ciplined and just once, on Tuesday, de
serted to the enemy. It Is the loosened
grip upon them that Is one nf the sorest
spots In the groat detent.
Of the l"i,0Mii regulars, no less than
7,."o receive salaries of $l,uoo and up
wurd. One salary enjoyed briefly by
ihe treat boss, who retired when lie saw
defeat In the air. Is the princely sum of
Mfi.WoO. The city chamberlain merely
keeps the accounts of cash placed In the
selected depository banks, signs war
rants perfunctorily without any power
-of audit ami draws the same salary
that thirty years ago was considered
sulHelelit compensation for the presi
dent of the I'nlted States. The func
tions of the comptroller are much more
Important in checking attucks upon the
jiublle purse, but his services are rated
at $l2,(Hili annually, with certain por
iiulsltes which nearly double the
other I at Offices.
The (If teen judges of the superior tind
common pleas courts are to be counted
In the list of political assets, because
aspirants have received their nomina
tions from the sachems, who In every
case levied heavy assessments. In one
case the tax was r.t.00O. l'robably no
class of ofiiclals come nearer earning
their salaries than these judges, who
receive $17,.jiia fur one class, and $l"i.00fl i
for the other. In Ibis account also j
must be reckoned the seven supremo ;
court Judges, who receive SI T.o'iO each,
only $ll,riOilii of which Is chargeable to
the city purse.
The Iieoorder's clllioe i.s worth $IG.OoO.
of which 12,nno Is for tlio judicial func
tions and Jl.OoO minor HHlarics for ser
vice in the boards of sinking funds and
armories. Then follow ten salaries of
$10,000 for judges of the city court and
general sessions. There, ore sixteen
SHlaries of $S.000, which go to the head
of the public works department and
the police justices. Of salaries ranging
from $7,500 down to J4.000 there are IK.
and tii'm range from J2,0o0 to SH.OOO. Of
salaries between Sl.oaO and fc.'.OO0 there
are U,.V)0. Over $::o,(i)0,noft Is (listributed
among this army In the shape (.f sal
aries, some of which are really earned
in the service of the city, llore, how
ever, are gifts for keeping up the dis- i
trlct organizations through local clubs, i
which are chosen and effective menus '
for holding the army of followers In;
touch. The maintenance of these clubs
Is at the charge of receivers of city sal-
arles. who are likewise compelled to pay
heavy assessments to the central body. I
They also had to pay liberally for their !
own appointment, for nil of which they
tire supposed to reimburse themselves
In any way that presented itself grow
ing out o( their oilicial position.
The largest salaries paid by the Fed
eral government, nulsido of the presi
dent and the diplomatic service, are
from 5,0'0 to $ln,o00. Cabinet olticers,
senators , congressmen and supreme
court judges find salaries of that grade
acceptable, and those who attain them
feel that they have won the worthy
prizes of life. Leaving senators and
congressmen out of the reckoning, not

Tammany as an l.mploycr.
There Is another army not In muni
cipal olllce, over which Tammany has
been able to extend Its control, Influenc
ing appointments and extorting liberal
contributions In the way of compensa
tion for Its trouble. The street and "L,"
railroad service has long been under the
political espionage of Tammany. The
Hrooklyn ling, just overthrown, ex
plotted this source of revenue more un
blushlngly than even Tanmtnny. A
year ago every . conductor, brakeman,
station agent, engineer, llivman nnd
employe In the depots and repair shops
was assessed one day's pay, and the re
ceipt for It was a full Democratic ticket
furnished the day before election, with
the injunction that It must be voted.
Deep indignation was aroused In the
men, who were only receiving $2 or lesu
per day, and they vented It by voting
the other way under the protection of
the secret bullot, then well understood
for the first time. Thtjy were not sub
jected to the demand from Wllloughby
street this year. They would not have
paid it, any way.
Tammany In like manner sees now
hnt Its vast army nf small contributors
railroad employes, contractors' la
borers, navies on the docks and others
whose employers expect favors from
the ruling powers, will be free from Its
exactions. These, however, were not
the most Important sources of the Wig'
wani's revenue. In the ten years dur
lng whl('h Tammany's control has been
welded Into a colossal instrument of ex
tortion, it become ns soulless as a Turk'
Ish pasha In extracting money from
those whose calling rendered them ob
noxious to the law. Sir. Ooff Is con
vinced that this levy of blackmail has
reached $IO,OO0.fMH), of which . Tarn
ninny's was the linn's share.
Other Revenue Sources.
Another source of Tammany's reve
nue, not us open to censure, has been
swept njivay by the tidal wave. Its as
sessment of candidates will of necessity
be more modest. Candidates for a
Judgeship will consider $50,ooo too steep
a contribution for a nomination which
may result In defeat. A vast source of
revenue to the Fourteenth street gang
has been left to the last. At the be
ginning: of each campaign hundreds of
men doing business in New York have,
Impelled by various motives, regularly
sent checks for large sums to Tam
many's treasurer. They pave like
amounts to the Republican campaign,
also, but Tammany represented concrete
Democracy, and was lis benollelary.
One who recently kept Taninmny's cash
box stated that these contributions
were the most Important of Tammany's
revenue that could not be brought
wider the head of blackmail. They will

has been Issued. The subpoena cites
that Colonel Colt was wanted as a wit
ness at- the trial,' Ills friends have
urged him not (o accept servlep on the

a ruse on the part of the authorities of
Washington Court House to get him

murder. They say the feeling against

Ills life will be In jeopardy. Tlio mem
bers of the local militia are greatly
excited and some of them advise that
the militia go to Washington Court
House with their muskets loaded and
act as a body guard.
It Is staled that Colonel Colt has tele
graphed Ciovernor JlcKlnley what he
(t.'oitl shall do hi the matter. The
governor is reported to have advised
Colonel Colt to go to Washington Court
House in response to the subpoena, and
that If he tluds that matters there are
of such a character that his life Is in
danger, the governor will order out the

f!y the I'nlted I'ress.
Johnstown, Pa., Nov. 14.
jTVdunod Hubert !. Ingersoll, who Is
In the city tonight received a I'nited
Press reporter in his room nt the hotel
and for the Hist time since the election
consented to give, bis views as to the
cause of tlio slump.
"The overwhelming Johnstown dis
aster that overtook the Democratic
party was caused by the blunders of
Cleveland and his administration," re
plied the distinguished agnpstlc. The
Sandwich Islands blunder was the first.
That set the pace. It was uii-Amoiicnn
and almost Idiotic. The Sandwich lsl
andii should be ours. Then the failure
to call a special session of congress
wus another blunder. The Wilson bill
ns first drawn was another, and as it
passod .41 ill another. Cleveland's letter
o Wilon was another blunder t mean
his 'iierlldy and dishonor' letter. So
Qis letter to ditchings was still tin
.;. Then his refusal to sign or veto
wan another blunder, mixed with a lit
tle cowardice. So his throut to keep
working towards free trade was an
other. So the letter of Secretary Car
lisle showing that it was doubtful
whether the government could keep all
Its money as good as gold was an awful
blunder. Turning all the committees in
the house and senate over to southern
Democrats was another blunder; the
general uituok on the pensioners an
other. "Now," continued Sir. Tngersoll,
"when these blunders nre all piled to
gether they account for whut happened.
Trade was demorall.ed; the factories
were closed; people were out of work
and out of food. When people have no
cents in their pockets they begin to
have some in their heads. So the peo
ple of this country got tired of Cleve
land and the Democratic party and
concluded to have a change. .. They used
to think that (ievclund had courage,
but this year he had not bravery enough
to vote the Democratic ticket.
ClevcliiaJ Is Hurled.
"Poor Cleveland," sighed Pagan Hob.
"He Is dead and burled. The mugwump
Idol Is shuttered, and no one sacrifices!
at his altar."
"Who Is the logical candidate of the
Hepubllctin party for president In lS'lti'.'"
Colonel Ingersoll was asked.
"Tom Heed. He would make a splen
did candidate. I think SlcKlnley would
be a good man too. Torn Heed Is a niiiii
of great ability and perfect poise. I
know of no man In the Democratic party
calculated to make a good president, be
I cause the doctrines of the party are bad.
The better the Democrat, the worse the
"Will the next Hepublican 'congress
repeal the Wilson tariff bill 7"
"They won't until they get a presl
d. nt. Then they will Instantly restore
the reciprocity policy. They will have
plenty to do In undoing the harm that
the Cleveland administration 'has
wrought. Our people do not want to
carry protection to excess, but want
tariff enough to raise the revenue wo
need nnd at the same time protect
American workmen unit American
manufacturers. We want to keep our
markets for ourselves." v ' '
Hevertlng again to the recent elec
tion, Mr. Ingersoll snld:
"This election has some large plums
In Its pudding. There Is a certain rap
ture In bidding Mr. llolman good bye;
In saying farewell to Mr. Springer and
adieu to Mr. Wilson, the gentleman
who became such a friend In America
that ho was exceedingly popular In
London. Hut Ihe best of ull, the crown
ing glory of the election was the break
ing of the 'Solid South. This gives
hope for the future."
