FACTS AND SCRAPS.
ivP Jr JU Jv Jt Jii i l
The president put in a veto of the
army appropriation bill because of
the "riders" with which it was loaded
down, particulary the features relating
to honest elections. The message of
the president shows that he will ad
here throughout to the views that the
election laws should stand since they
are conducive to fair elections and an
impediment, only to dishonest voting.
The president's denunciation of the
method of legislation, attempted by
this act, is also vigorous and conclu
sive. The veto will be sustained; then
the row will be "who's responsible for
the loss of the appropriation bill" as
Lefore the special session.
A Washington dispatch says: Re
publicans are delighted with the mes
sage, and generally regard that in point
of ability and ell'ective presentation of
the position which they intend to
stand before the country, it has far ex
ceeded their expectations. The demo
crats insist that the president's argu
ment, denying the necessity of any
further legislation t prevent military
interference with elections, is not con
clusive, but that on the contrary it is
evasive of the merits of the main
question inolved in the pending bill.

San Francisco papers are filled with
comments on the defalcations of the
late assistant city treasurer Casse
bohm. Suspended treasurer Humbert
says the assurance may be positively
iven that the defalcation does not
exceed $20,000, and that Mr. Casse
boh ill's bondsmen are amply responsi
ble ior the amount. When the time

terior vaults. The combination was
then changed and the keys placed in
the hands oi the mavor and auditor.

warrants misappropriated; the

attorney. M. M. Estee, and will be
submitted to the grand jury.

The good man is the only one who

A wag, who was also a philosopher,
once said that if some men's bodies
were no straighter than their minds
they would be crooked enough to ride
on their own backs.
The best authorities tell us that a
