MONDAY - - OCTOBER 31. 1898
Two "sons of their fathers" have
been discharged from the army.
They are Captain Alger, son of the
secretary of war, who has been serv
ing in the rank of assistant adjutant
general, and Captain McMillan, son
of the administration United States
senator from Michigan, who has been
serving as assistant quartermaster.
It was appointments of this char
acter, made solely on political and
family considerations, which led to
the frightful abuses of the war de
partment during the recent war. The
service was loaded up with these
ycung sprigs, while officers of life
long training were held in retire
ment. An example of this gross discrim
ination is under the eye of the Spo
kane public. Major W. II. Miller is
one of the most efficient officers in
the quartermaster's department. He
has trained for a soldier, and has had
long experience. haviDg been gradu
ated from West Point in 1872. He
was not allowed to take any part in
the war, but was kept here in charge
of the construction of a new army
post work ot considerable import
ance in time of peace, but of small
consequence in time of actual warfare.
He was kept in the background in
order that political and family favor
ites might be pushed to the front
as young Alger and young McMillan
and scores of others were pushed to
the front and entrusted with duties
for which they were unfitted duties
upon which hung the lives of our
soldiers and the very existence of
If Alger bad been a man of strong
character he would not have given
an appointment to his son. He would
have understood that in so doing he
gave every place-hunting politician
a twist upon his administration.
"When senators and others of influence
came asking for the appointment of
their sons and nephews, he could not
shut them off with the statement that
-nepotism, which is bad in peace, be
comes almost criminal in time of
It is refreshing to contrast with
Alger's low course the patriotic con
duct of Thomas Jefferson. Writing
on March 27, 1801, to his kinsman,
George Jefferson, he says:
'The public will never be made to
believe that the appointment of a
relative is made on the ground of
merit alone, uninfluenced by family
views; nor can they ever see, with
approbation, offices, the disposal of
which they trust to their presidents
for public purposes, divided out as
family property. Mr. Adams de
graded himself infinitely by his con
duct on the subject, as General Wash
ington had done himself the greatest
honor. With two such examples to
proceed by, I should, be doubly in
excusable to err."
During the recent war the country
has seen a scandalous "dividing out
of offices as family property." Spokesman-Review.
