CIVIU SERVICE REFORM.
Perhaps no question occupied so much
f ti public attention four years ago
&At which heads this article. The
EnfideaVa latter accepting the uomina-!;-fall
of promise on thin point.
HI tkmnmx order on this subject is still
t reh in the memory of all. A nd certain
ly during his administrat ion the civil ser
vice has been reformed with a vengeance.
It may well be doubted if any four year
has witnessed more flugrant violations
of it than those that are now fortunately
floating to a close. With all the solemn
prmieji of reform in this particular still
-staging in our cars what do e find i
jr.We government force turned loose
it were to secure the election of the
republican candidate. We find members
of tfee pabinet making political speeches
til ve the Union, and even the Presi
lnt himl jn spite of his celebrated
order, using the prestige of his position
o help elect a man whom ho not long
ago denounced as too corrupt to occupy
ft position in the New' -York Custom
il0tu This truly is civi! service reform
. id a peculiar order. Add to this t hat
during every interesting campaign dur
ing this regime hundreds of clerks and
employees from the different departments
have had furloughs granted them that
they might participate in the canvass and
further the cause of their party, and we
Jiave a system of civil service reform
Out luckily has no parallel in the his
tory of our nation. But the attempts
to reform the service have gone further.
JTet long ago we were shown a document
a Poet Master; it was gently intimated
a oonlribution towards the general
ir.paign fund from him was now in or
4mr. It insinuated also that a non corn
fiance with this modest request might
result disadvantageous! to the official
addressed ; but it considerately" added
that any donation thus made would not
he displeasing to any superior in office.
In short these documents, one of which
was sent to every governnieut official in
the Union, said plainly, give or go; it is
all right as far as the civil service order
it concerned. Now in a spirit of fair
ness we present these facta to the un
biased consideration of all good citians
and ask, is this the fruit of so many fair
PWiniseaT Since the formation of our
government there has been no equal to it.
Can we then trust those who have failed
o signally to redeem a single pledge
made with reference to this important
subject? Let the voto iu November an
swer in tones that may not be slighted
It is ith a feeling of deep sorrow,
aays the E. O. Republican, that we chron
ica the fact that Wm. Rinehart Esq., of
Summerville, has lost his three remain
ing children. This is one of the saddest
vents that has ever occurred in the
FUey. Less than a month go Mr. and
Mrs. Rinehart were the fcappy parents
f six hright boys and girls, hut to-day
tketr are childless. We are sore they

ommnnity in this their grievous afflic

pression, the growth of two hours' neatly-guarded
conversation, by unveiling
the true disposition. But, a good dispo
sition granted as a basis, a polish en
gendered by sedulously cultivating such
a style as will wear off the asperities of
ourselves and grate the least on the sens
ibilities'of others, is desirable. Polish
is not affectation. It is simply reducing
to a system, r habit, a gentleness and
inoffensiveness in dealing with others.
It is found, by social contact, that cer
tain acts or styles of speech prove disa
greeable to others. Their avoidance,
and the substitution of that which, while
harmless, is yet agreeable, is etiquette.
In other words, etiquette is bat the
formulization of what is agreeable, and
the repression of what is distasteful.
But beneath all this, the mind must be
enriched with knowleigeand brightened
by contact and culture. No community
is so small that some cannot be found
desirous of advancing such ideas. By a
judicious and intellectual combination,
much good must accrue. Some can only
launch into speculation and theorize on
ideals, while others, less originative can
sagaciously criticise and comment. Both
are indispensable. Add to this the finer
and niore esthetic pursuits, as blending
the colors in harmony or embellishing
the beauties of nature; or followin
strains of music in a delicious concord
of sounds; or revelling with the poets in
realms of picturesque reality, while
clothed in glowing garb, and we have
reached the higher plane of mundane ex
istence. Every community owes it to
itself to develop every energy toward eu-
couraijing intellectual pursuits. Onlv
thus can man be brought to that mental
elevation designed for him, as evinced
by his possessing the natural capacity.
Indications are that the social turmoil,
tha labor mobs, and the Kearneyisui are
rapidly dissolving in the state south of
us, and that a better condition of affairs
it promised. Political questions of
national importance are engrossing at
tention and swallowing unnoticed the
paltry local issues that have been engen
dering such bad blood. Political antagon
ism Las dropped into the old channel.
and Democracy or Republicanism i3 now
the attitude. The dismembered
racy is again strong in its entirety, and
grows stronger with Hancock at its head.
With the firm unanimit in the demo
cratic ranks, we find a Jack of harmony
j on the other side. The late Republican
Stite Convention terminated in a big
row, and outspoken dissatisfaction was
prevalent. The prevailing belief as to
Garfitsl-i's action on the Chinese question,
before being a nominee for the Presiden
cy, weakens his prospects in that state.
Tbe balance of political power is eawly
held by those who prefer anti-Chinese
principles to any other, and the present
indications are that the Democracy will
obtain that strength. The prospects of
the Democracy for carrying that state in
November are certainly enceuraginir.

Eds. Lvader: Will you please allow
me to extiress wv dislike of the loud ant
j coarse language indulged in during the
evenings and until late hours at night in
our usually quiet city. Oaths arc
screamed out by drunken men and can
be heard for blocks on either side of the
main offices. Women and children are
alarmed by these howlers, night made
hideous and the streets unfit for nse.
What u our security from such, rn man

the ordinances made by the City Council.
If country and city roughs are permit
ted to trample decency and order under

If we have a marshal who is paid for
looking after those rowdies he ought to
attend to his duty and suffer no such
disgraceful yelling to go unnoticed and
