Washington, March 22, 1889.
Editor Oiikoon Scout:
Ko reader of Eugene Schuyler's
American Diplomacy was surprised
when the President this week with
drew his name for First Assistant Sec
retary of State, though the excuse wns
made that the action was made by Mr.
Schuyler himself, who had just found
time to cabin his regrets and declina
tion. Mr. Schuyler has tlitin experi
enced a striking d Miioiistratioii of the
truth of the adage that he who laughs !
laughs best. A number of years ago, j
wnen lie occupied n diplomatic posi
tion, Eugene wrote ugly tilings about
the Minister to France, Mr. Wash
burn?, as well as several other Ameri
can polilcians. The work was thorough
ly snobbish and self siillicipnt and
though it was rnon forgotten, it was
widely cursed. It is oven stated that
Mr. Hlaine last year placed Schuyler's
name on tno list ol "the forgiven,"
though reluctantly. Put there were
dozens of other lists on which Mr.
Schuyler's cognomen was black-mark
ed, and among these tho private lists
pertaining to Senators Sherman. Far-
well and Edmunds. All they wanted
was a chance to reject tho New Yorker
with the unruly tongue, and practical
ly they have had there" revenge, late
iuw York is certainly rowing her
share of tho appointments, as well as
the shares properly belonging to every
one else. It is not yet known wether
or not Whitelaw Kehl will accept the
.French mission, but wether lie does or
not tho position has thus first been
offered to Sow York. It is stated
that in the event of his refusal, Senator
Evarts will resign and take the Fnglish
mission, leaving tiio way clear for Tom
Piatt to enter the Senate. Another
rumor is to tho effect that in the fail
tiro of such n deal, Ohauncey Dcpow
will go to England. No one appears
to know exactly how wealthy Mr.
Dcpow is. He may bo worth $10,000,-
000 for all any one knows to the con
trary.. His railroad duties makes him
the hardest worked mail in New York.
lie is in tho autumn of lifo, What
would bo more pleasant than tho high
est diplomatic, position in the gift of
tho counti v.
Tho thrifty spirit of Fred Grant (of
Now York, of course) was exhibtcd on
Wednesday by his success in inducing
the President to appoint him Minister
to Austria. Fred is lucky in securing
more than ho originally asked. In
January he announced himself as n
candidate for the Chinese, mission, ami
as no ono could givo any grounds for
tho asking, it was taken as a playful
evidence of his pungent humor. Tho
majority of the people were simply as
tounded by his appointment to the
When General Grant died tho rep
utation of his magnificent military
achievements, tho fame of his privnto
worth and personal honor, passed into
tho sacred keeping of good men every
where. Honors were thick upon him.
Tho lion did not siro lino cubs, howev
er, and tnero is no more reason lor
asking the American people to admire
Fred Grant than thoio would bo for
asking them to idolize Fred Jones, or
Frod Smith, or any other impudent and
addle patcd son of a good father. This
country is supposed to have no royal
family. Fred (irant reared in an nl
inosphero of adulation, used to seeing
his father worshiped, and nover when
a child broken of the foul habit of
taking everything he could get and
crying for more, grew up to be the
morit astounding niig. the most im
pudent beggar and the most selfish
bigot, that it has ever been my bad
fortune to see. And now ho has been
appointed to the Austrian mission,
while other men, having tho claim of
faithful party service and high ability,
must step aside, Payard sent to tho
same court Kiley, in tho beginning of
his adminstration of the State Depart
ment; limine leads oil with Grant. It
is stated that President Harrison
could not well resist the pressure with
out showing personal feeling, Fred
Grant having been n supporter of
John O. Now's aeeeptanco of tho no
sition of Consul General at London
was natural, but his disappointment at
failing to secure tho Austrain appoint
ment was keen. Air. ew has plenty
of money and his wife especially desi
red the social prestige which the Aus
trian appointment would confer, and
which the Consulship at London could
not afford. His Republican services
mad1' his request a reasonable one.
Hut Grant must bo first served, Inas
much as the London office is twice ns
profitable in point of inconio, it would
seem that Mr. New could have induced
Fred to trade. There is no telling,
however, what a thrifty fellow like
Fred may bo nblo to make in Austria.
Sonio of the disappointed ollteo
seekers havo gone homo disgusted, but
new arrivals atone for their loss, nnd
Washington hotel keepers are happy,
for tho avorago otllce-seckor is nblo to
pav his way.
