Mr. Wanamaker has had some ideas
as postmaster general that were too
far "advanced," but his career In office
has been one of great usefulness. The
postal business has never been bo well
done, and yet the democratic press has,
without cessation, poured upon him a
dribble of low abuse, apparently be
cause they did not want a business
man to have a great public truHt. The
democrats were too high tipped and
gorgeous to consent to seeing a shop
keeper In the cabinet. The secretary
of the Interior, Noble, has also been a
success, and there Is no cloud on any
part of his work. lie has not been the
factional or the fanatical enemy of
land grants, but has shaped his course
with wisdom and fairness. IIIm
special work has been the preservation
of forests, and he has made for him
self by his enlightenment and energy
on that subject, a permanent place- In
history. The Harrison administration,
taken as a whole, has an incomparable
record for four years.
The New York Evening Post gives
Secretary Noble In full measure the
credit due htm for his intelligence, seal
courage and success in preserving
forests during his administration of the
interior department. There is no doubt
Mr. Noble has served the country wise
ly and well In this important matter
Ha has feaved .forests that protect

A Boulangist deputy, Leon Dumon
till, fought, a duel with a newspaper
man. Prosper Olivier, near Paris last
week, and the Boulangist deputy was
wounded in the side. This untoward
incident is regarded as a regrettable
accident, arising from the fact that M
Olivier forgot himself for the time be
ing and imagined he was preparing
leaded matter for the press. He will
be more careful in the future not to
transend the traditions of the French
duel, and keep his wits about him the
next time he has an affair of that kind
on hand. ' This confusion of business
with pleasure is not regarded favora
bly in France.
If Mr. Cleveland desires to know the
financial views of Judge Gresham, he
will find some statistics in a very small
speech delivered by the Judge in behalf
of Mr. Blaine in 1884. This speech, it
may refresh the memory of the presi
dent to recollect, was supposed to be
opposed to the election of Grover
Cleveland. In Justice to all parties con
cerned, however, it must be said, no
one thought at the time that Judge
Gresham's statistical effort had deeply
damaged the democracy. Still It was
said to be stalwart, and was meant for
