A PGSShiLE RETURN.
Tux rumors of the possible restor
ation of Henry Tillard to the control
of the Northern Pacific Railroad
company, says the Kerry, are becom
ing so numerous and are attracting
such general attention that they may
materialize into fact. It is generally
considered in railroad circles that the
success of Ike Billings party at ihe
next election of directors, at the
September meeting of the stockhold
ers, will result in the restoration of
Tillard to his former position at the
head of the irreat corporation. It is
said Yillard himself has heen quietly
at work among the European stock
holders to secure proxies, and that a
combination of his strength with the
Billings parly will prove more than a
match for the Wright interest. Tho
latter is also weakened by his well
known desire to make the road sec
ondary to his landed interests on Pu
get Sound, especially m and about
Tacoma. Stockholders who fully
comprehend this fact will hesitate to
give him their proxies, for they can
not understand how the interests of
a great enterprise should be made to
play second to those of a small one,
simply because one man is personally
more largely concerned with the
The Hallway llcvlcw, in speaking
of Yillard's rise and fall in the rail
way world, concedes the brilliancy of
ids policy, from ihe days of its incep
tion, through the expenditure of the
proceeds of the famous "blind pool,'
and up to ihe dale of the final fiasco,
and says while he has many enemies
who say unpleasant things, Ibe gen
eral verdict upon his career
is that ho was nothing worse
than over-sanguine that he was
11 little ahead of Ihe limes. II
thinks, should he again lake a posi
tion of prominence in connection with
the Northern Pacific affairs, lbs times
will so. nearly havo caught up with
him as to allow of a partial resump
tion of his former brilliancy, meaning
by this he will have a chance under
more favoring conditions to person
ally oversee a vindication of his oft
expressed faith in the possibilities of
the great northern route and regain
for his name the lustre now slightly
The secretary of state will have the
sympathy of all Americans, and es
pecially of, all who have traveled
abroad, iu his efforts lo improve the
tone of our consular service. But
the radical evil can only be remedied
by congress. At present, salaries in
that branch of our service are absurd
ly small. The consequence is that
the occupants fall iulo three classes.
First, the impecunious, who are glad
to take anything; second, rich people,
who aro desirous of social distinction
and are willing to tako place for
whatever honor may go with it; and
third, ignorant persons, who imagine
that there is much more money and
glory in a consulate than ihe facts
warrant. A fourth class might in
clude invalids who have an idea that
a particular climate may benefit
them, and who lake ofiice in order to
have a livelihood and easy occupation
in their search for health. Out of
these four classes our foreign consu
lar service ia mostly recruited, and
must continue to be, until congress
sees fit either to abolish tho system
or attach proper and sufficient com
pensation to the offices.
The rapidity with which asistaut
postmaster general Stevenson is re
moving Bepublican postmasters and
filling the vacancies with Democrats
is causing some anxiety among the
mugwumps. But it is not reasonable
to expect the Democratic party lo
let fifty thousand postoflices of tho
country remain in Bepublican hands.
These offices aro not covered by the
civil service rules, and it has been an
nounced that the administration will
not extend the scope of the rules at
this time. Theorists who go lo ex
tremes may denounce a policy that
lookslike compromising with "spoils,"'
but great reforms move slowly, and
they can only move at all when sus
tained by public sentiment. If it ap
pears that the classified civil service
has survived a change of party aud is
established on a basis that lifts it
abovo the mutations of politics, that
will be an immense stride forward.
The Tacoma Lodger naturally
looks with, disfavor on the O. E. & N.
lease. It says: "There -will Le no
leaso of the O. E. & N. if the friends
of tho road can help it At least not
unless the interests of those who
have invested in the Northern Pacific
are fully secured and protected. Tho
lease as at present formulated would
give the payment of the interest on
the stocks and bonds of the O. It &
N. precedence over tho common and
preferred stock of Ihe Northern Pa
cific, to which some of the heaviest
stockholders are opposed, and which,
if necessary to protect themselves
and others, they will bring to the at
tention of the courts."
The stale department may now
have another Keiley on its hands in
the person of James "Yhalen, who
was recently appointed consul at
Fort Erie, opposite Buffalo. YVhalen,
it appears, was an active Fenian in
the 1SG8 episode, and on that account
is very obnoxious to the Canadian
government A British diplomatic
agent has been working on the case,
and, it is said, he has advised "Whal
en's rejection on his record. In that
case the state department may have a
delicate task ahead of it.

THE IXSUiUSCE SITCAT10X.
There are indications, says the San
Francisco Report, that tho compact to
sustain rates among the firo insurance
companies, numbering about one hun
dred, doing business on this coast, is at
an end. Several companies havo given
tho required thirty days' notice that thoy
havo had enough of the compact.
Tho agreement has lasted a year, and
the only wonder is that it ha3 lasted so
long. There are on this coast, agencies
of tho largest pnd strongest companies
in the world. These companies aro very
conservative, not only not seeking busi
ness, but refusing much business that is
brought to them. They demand tb&ir
own price and, as a rale, get it, and the
public may be sure that that price is
such as to enable tho companies to de
clare large dividends and settle losses
with a promptitude that literally takes
the breath out of the agents for small
companies. Besides these, there are a
number of rehablo companies pushing
business and paying reasonable commis
sions to agents. Outside, there aro
skirmishers, who will pay any commis
sion and underwrite at unremunerative
nriees to forco business. Tho heavy
companies are not hurt thereby, but tho
reliable and smaller companies, ranking
next to thorn, are tlio losers, ano com
pact was made to prevent the small com
panies from cutting rates, and rates were
lixed atliving prices for all tho compan
ies. That would have been a good arrange
ment had all tho companies had an equal
standing. As it was. however, tho pub
lic naturally said: 4 'As tho rates or all
tho companies are the same we shall pick
tho best." And they did. Thus tho
small companies got the worst of the
bargain and will commence guerriHn war
faro again and obtain soma business nt
low rates on tho rule that half a loaf is
better than no bread.
