THE 80BAJHRL.E FOR OFFICE.
The Indiscriminate scramble for office
that is daily witnessed in I Washington
City is becoming a national disgrace.
This scramble is'not confined to Ohio
men, by any means, although the ordi
nary reader of the papers might sup.
pose that nobody but Ohio men held
office and that the chief occupation of j
an Ohio man, is in holding omce, ana
that the main object that an Ohioian
of the masculine gender has, in being
born, is that he may one day become an
office-holder. Thus far the Ohioian has
been remarkably s uccessf ul in the aim
of his ambition and astonishingly num
erous in and about the provender crib
But he U not the only one, as we re
marked, who has this consuming hank
ering for pap. Everywhere throughout
this broad land, from where the seal
dives in icy waters on Alaska's frigid
shores on the north (no strain in this)
to where the lounging alligator wal
lows in the tepid waters warmed up by
an almost tropic sun on the south (nor
in this either) from where the howling
blizzard cometb with an unforgetable
blizzardness on the western plain, to
the eastern seaboard, whereLthe frosted
winds lash the foam on ocean's crest
and nip the noses of the Nantucket
codfisher. We believe that takes all of
Uncle Sam's plantation in. They are
everywhere, amusingly numerous, mar
velously ubiquitous, desperately persis
tent, and disgustingly conspicuous.
It was bad enough in years gone by,
even in the days of what they call the
fathers . we know a gentleman now,
advanced in years, prominent as a law
yer, and one of the leading politicians
of the Western State in which he re
sides, whose first venture in young
manhood was to come from the then
territory of Wisconsin to Washington
in search of an office, which he hoped
' to get in consideration of the valuable
services he had rendered the party, re
mained there about a month, spent all
his money and finally borrowed enough
from Daniel Webster (to whom he told
the story of hi3 disappointment and got
some good advice in return) to go home
on. He has never gone to Washington
since unless legal business called him
before the Supreme court or the lobby,
which he has successfully cultivated,
imperatively called him. Thousands
have had his experience practically, but
instead of quitting, as he did, still hang
on to be disappointed year after year.
Tes, it was bad enouzh then, but it
has been getting worse ever since
Then there was not one office to where
there are a hundred now, not one to fill
them then to where there are a thou
sand now, which is accounted for, to
some extent at least, by the fact that
Uncle Sam's income was not as large
then as it is now ; he had not a dollar to
be stolen then where he has a thousand
now. wasnington was a village com
paratively, what Tom Moore (we be
lieve it was) called a "city of magnifi
cent distances," in summer dust,;in win
ter mud ; now it is a city of two hun
dred thousand with neither dust nor
mud; one of the handsomest and best
paved cities in the world, though really
a city of boarding houses, which has
grown, and thriven principally upon
this class of people who frequent it in
such great numbers.
Now seven out of every ten men met
in the hotels, departments, barrooms,
bagnios, gaming houses, and other
Capital places of attraction, are men in
quest of berths that will enable them
to draw a salary and live with little or
with no labor. Then they are of all
classes from the humble but hopeful
searcher after a small billet to the pom
pous beggar for a cabinet place, a va
cant roost on the supreme bench, or a
feathered nest in a foreign mission.
They are all there, all beggars alike, but
of somewhat different degrees. - We
wish we could say for North Carolina
that she was an exception to this gen
eral rule, and that she had not her
standing brigade (now a money brigade)
of large and small, distinguished and
fame unknown, with assaulters. But
she has, and at this time she is more
distinguished in this respect. There
they are in person or by representative
from the four points of the compass,
from "Currituck to Cherokee" (or words
to that effect) from the Old Dominion
border to the Palmetto line, there they
are with their best store clothes on,
their hair greased, a "biled" shirt in
their satchels and their nails (figura
tively speaking) sharpened to scratch
the eyes out of the fellows that hanker
after the loaves and fishes, so to speak,
which they loyally hunger for. Never
before since Christopher Columbus
struck terra firm a and proclaimed the
doctrine of squatter sovereignty in this
country, which on subsequent occasions
figured extensively in our politics, has
there been such a gatb.ering.in quantity
and quality of the ins and want-to-get-ins
in that burg, as has flocked thither
since the new administration has come
into power. And such a contest as
they are waging, was never perhaps
witnessed before. Though they belong
not to our household and we are not
responsible for them nor their actions
as Carolinians, we could wish they had
less dirt to fling and flung less of it. But
they seem to hrfve carried the accumu
lations of their muck heaps with them
and scatter with a vengeance. There
are few of them to whom some of it
does not stick.
It is shameful, disgusting, and the
sooner some way is devised of changing
the mode of selecting officers to fill the
places now filled by Presidential ap
pointment, which calls the gangs of
office-hunters to Washington to wrangle
and insult the sense of decency in the
country, the better for the country.
The dividends from the Nevada

PARK ROW IN A SVDDEIf BLAZE.
IHnch Property Destroyed and it la
Feared Many Live Leet.
New York. Jan. 31. The buildings
destroyed or damaged by to-day's fire
comprised the entire triangular block
bounded Dy 1'arK now, jjeesman ana
Nassau streets and was one of the
most crowded blocks in the city, con
sidering the space it covered.
The upper floors were occupied Dy
various manufacturing industries and
as composing rooms of many weeKiy
newspapers, the majority of which em
ployee: women compositors.
The fire began in an old building
recently occupied by the World news
paper. It was the property of ex
Congressman Orland B. Potter. It was
a very large building, extending from
Park Kow to Nassau street along Beek
man, with entrances only on Park Row
and Nassau streets.
It was full of wooden windows, cor
ridors and crooked stairways, and has
been for years regarded by firemen
with apprehension. Recently an ele
vator had been put in on the Nassau
street side, and in this elevator shaft
the fire (originated, on the basement
floor, and running up the shaft filled
the halls and stairways so quickly with
flame and smoke that escape by that
means was cut off before the occupants
of the upper floors suspected danger.
Many people were seen by those in
the streets below to appear at the win
dows with hair and garments ablaze,
but they soon disappeared. One man
who gained the roof and escaped by
way of the Times building shouted to
the rescuers that scores of people were
cut off from escape.
Sjme jumped from windows and
were killed or terribly injured
on the pavements below. One or two
boys who jumped had their falls brok
en bv striking telegraph wires and es
caped serious injury, but one large,
heavy man who leaped from the third
story window on Nassau street struck
the New York wires, which nearly cut
him to pieces as he crashed through

wards died. Many deeds of heroism
were performed by firemen and citi

presence of mind and bravery, which
resulted in one case in saving five and
in another three workmen, whose es

SaperotUiena Gold-Seekers In Georgia.
Columbus (Ga.) Enquirer.
Yesterday we were informed that
the three cranks who are digging for
the hidden treasure near Eufaula are
about fifty feet below the surface and
are still confident that they will soon
be rewarded for all their work.
They have been thus digging away
for more than two weeks and about
their work cling many superstitious
ideas. They have drawn a line around
the mouth of the well which they call
the charmed circle, within which they
will not talk for fear the gold of
which they are in search will sink deep
er in the earth.
They have paid the owner of the land
for the privilege of making a hole in
his earth and are now, possibly, only
working to secure their money's worth.
Their drooping hopes, however, so it is
said, were revived Saturday by the find
ing of a email lot of gold, and so they
are continuing work with renewed en
ergy. It is said that several thousand peo
ple have visited them since they began
their foolish labors.
A Financial Panic in Dublin
London, Jan. 29. The Observer's cor
respondent at Dublin says : "There has
been another and larger failure at the
London Stock Exchange yesterday. It
is expected that two or three large
will fail during the present week unless
assistance is offered: them. There also
have been one failure in the foundry
business and one in the building busi
ness, with liabilities of 60,000 and 15,
000, respectively. There is quite a lo
cal panic and business is at the lowest
ebb. Tradesmen are endeavoring as
far as possible to collect debts, but as
the debtors are mostly landlords there
is no possibility of a settlement for
months to come."

Vest submitted a modification of his
amendment, but the Senate at 2.15, af
ter a discussion in which Hawley and
Ingalls were the principal participants,
rejected the entire Vest amendment
ayes 28, noes 82.
The discussion then proceeded upon
Plumb's proposition for a reduction of
a definite limit to redemption.
Plumb withdrew all the clauses of
his amendment except the one direct
ing the use of surplus revenues in ex
cess of $100,000,000 for redemption pur
poses, and the discussion was confined
to this Dronosition.
Davis, of West Virginia, suggested a
modification which was accepted Dy
Plumb so as to apply $100,000,000 of the
reserve to the redemption of the four
and a half per cents., when due, in ad
dition to three and a half per cent.
Plumb's amendment was then agreed
to, ayes 33, noes 29. It is as follows :
"That the Secretary of the Treasury
shall use all of the funds now held in
the treasury for the redemption of U.
S. notes in excess of $100,000,000 in re
demption of the bonds of the United
States, such redemption to be made in
not less than three instalments, and
said sum of $100,000,000 so left in the
treasury shall not be increased ordi
minished except in redemption of Uni

ONE EXPERIENCE FROM MANY.
I had been sick and miserable so long and had
caused my husband so much trouble and expense,
no one seemed to know what ailed me, that I was
completely disheartened and discouraged. In this
frame of mind I got a bottle of Hop Bitters and
used them unknown to my family. I soon began
to Improve and gained so fast that my husband
and lamiiy thought it strange and unnatural; but
when I told them what had helped me, they said,
"Hurrah for Hop Bitters 1 long may they prosper,
for they have made mother well and us happy."
