swer is that It does, and that the
people seem to bo satisfied. And the
reason is that ours is "a government
of laws, not of men" particularly
not of a man and when rightly
wound up it runs automatically very
well for a coustdorablo period.
Six insane pauper immigrants who
arrived recently on board the Bul
garia iron Russia, are to lie deported.
While immigration of the better class
Is desirable, there hns been too much
laxity in years gone by in the en
forcement of the regulations prohibit
ing pauper, criminal and other un
desirable classes coming to our ble because it was not generally
THEY ALL HAD A CHANCE.
Speaking of success, one of Theo
(lore WInthrop's characters said;
"Some men grab their chances, some
chuck away their chances and some
just let their chances slide."
The following able lnwyers have
held the office of attorney-general
since the Sherman anti-trust law was
passed. In 1S90:
W. H. H. .Miller, under President
Richard Olney and Judson Harmon,
Joseph McKenna and John W.
(Jriggs, under MeKinley.
Philander C. Knox, under McKlnley
All these men had an equal chance
to win credit for the administration
and personal distinction by securing
an enforcement or the plain law
against competition-killing and traffic-restraining
trusts. Mr. Knox is
the only one who improved his op
portunityor to put it idiomatically.
"grabbed his chance." And Ills action
is the more conspicuous and credita-
to understand that such appointments
can 110 longer be obtained for parti
san services only. The applicant for
a consular office must be fitted by
nature and by training to perform
the duties which the American pub
lie has a right to expect from each
and nil of Its representatives abroad,
The Washington Stnr In noting
what has been, done in the way of
reform says: "The service has grnd
ually Improved In recent ndmlnlstra
tions, but has not yet come up to the
president's standard. Ho Is now on
gaged In hoeing out the weeds, and
In the several weeks past more men
in the establishment have been re
moved for reasons of reform than
ever before in the same space of
time." The report adds: "There now
are 327 posts In tho service. While
perhaps the poorest paid, it Is look
ed upon ns already the most efficient
consular corps in tho world. In tho
eld days these po3ts were looked
upon very generally ns sinecures, of'
ferlng a foreign lite of ease to men
with sufficient private fortune to ad
mit of their mingling In society
nbioad. Literary men coveted many
of the berths for the abundant ma
terlal offered and many a lasting bit
of fiction has been Inspired by the
romantic surroundings of our consul
ntes. Hut tho Ideal wave of Yankee
commercial supremacy has now beat
en. upon the shores of the farthest
distant isles of the sens and nearly
every American consul is busy."
The improvement thus being effect
ed in the service without the old of
reform legislation tends to confirm
Dr. Johnson's theory that tho govern
mem that Is best administered is
best. It proves thai when a long de
sired reform becomes n necessity and
men are resolved to have It there Is
nlways found some way of achieving
it, oven If politicians object. It would
be better, of course, to have a thor
ough reform of the consular system,

GOVERNMENT IN THE SADDLE.
