The Happening;! In and Around
Washington Tersely Told by
Our Own Correspondent.
Washington, D. C, April 13th.
The scandal in the Post Ollicc De
partmeut is one of the most llagrunt
examples of Republican administra
tion furnished sinco the war. The
charges and thev are? well foitified
disclose a colossal scheme of job
bery and robbery. Several officials
have resigned. Others don't dare.
Several of the Inch officers of the
deportment seem to have plundered
right and left. In view of the mil
lions annnully spent for the postal
service it is readily seen how venal
officials could "mkeoff'' enormous
The jobbery apparently grew up
under Ilanna s man Percy S. Heath,
who as First Assistant PostmasUr
General was a politician, if nothing"
worse. The department was admin
istered like a Chinese province aiid
whether or not Heath was a direct
beucficiary his methods bred up the
lot ten system now being pitchforked
to tne sunlight.
And this sort of thing has been
going on while letter carriers, post-
omce clerks and railway postal em
ployees are undcrpaid-und overwork
If the contracts for carrying the
mails over the railroads were as eco
nomically let as they should be and
could be, and the purloined millions
were saved to the coverninont, the
postal employes could be paid decent
salaries and there, would be moucy
ieii over besides.
Exposure in this case came as a
result of a row among officials.
Robt. J. Wynne, who believes in hav
ing his authority rcsiieetod, cot mad
at some of the well intrenched offi
cials who were nmusetl at some of
Wynne's efforts to direct. Wynne
was recently appointed First Assist
ant 1'ostniHsk-r General. 1 lie other
fellows had been in their jobs for
years and were rated as experts.
So Wynne resarted to the familiar
device of Htarting a lire behind his
enemies and the disclosures resulted.
Bellairs, the swindler and convict,
who was an Associated Press Repre
sentative, sent the news of General
Leonard Wood s "marvelous success"
is an administrator in Santiago first.
and subseUintly in Havana us Gov
ernor General, has been exposed. He
is now known as a man named Ital
lentine, from Norfolk county, Eng
land. He is in the New York
Rogues' Gallery. He is described by
Byrnes as the most successful confi
dence man of the world. Ho was
convicted of forgery in Florida and
three years after the expiration of
is term he was, under the name of
iteliairs, informing the American
ublic of Cuban affairs. He was
Wood's guide, counsellor and friend.
He was on, it is seriously asserted,
three distinct Cuban nuvrolls. lie
then, after "making Wood"!" was sent
to the PhillipincS and for two years
Phillipine news come to this country
filtered through this moral sewer.
Kxnontro came to him through his
book, in which he denounced Gov.
.'aft and extolled ood and declared
hat Wood should be sent to enlace
Tuft. Tuft's friends exposed Bel-
airs. If the Republican "grafters"
light frequently enough we may leirn
ALL the truth about this udininis
tion but they are not likely to. Com
mon cansc will assert its influence.
Hellairs, however brilliant as a
swindler he may be, is only an inci
dent. Whatot Wood, the Presi
dent's great friend? What of the
charges against Wood so lightly dis
missed by Secretary Root? Hid
Vt ood Know ot liel lairs real name,
record and character? Hid not some
army officers denounce Iteliairs to
to W ood, and did not tho latter, de
spite that fact, continue his associa
tion with Bellairs? Why was the
administration of Cuba so expensive
under wood.' ralma has governed
more firmly, more quietly and much
less expensively. How about the
gambling monopoly Wood faotoned
for ten years on Havana.' We do
know that he did got from the stock
holders of this gambling monopoly
a $5,00 service, and it is said that he
admitted the service into Cuba free
of duty four days before its presenta
tion. How about the contracts let
and franchises granted by Wood?
And yet Wood is slated by Roose
velt to be the head of the army the
The speeches of the President on
his trip and those of some of his cab
inet members are attracting some at
tention here in political circles. They
are distinctly anti-tariff revision.
They toll us tint nothing can be ex
pected of the Republican party in
the way of tariff revision legislation
in the next Congress, and it is notice
to the people of the country that if
they want any such thing or any re
lief From the burdens of tariff taxa
tion or relief from the burdens of
trust rapacity, they will have to elect
a Democratic Congress and a Demo
cratic administration. The kind of
talk indulged in by the President
and his cabinet ministers is a distinct
violation of all the pledges made to
the people by the Republican party.
If that party can afford to stand pat
on its violated pledges then it is up
to the people. The President not
only tells us that his party is not go
ing to do anything it promised but
one can drive an ox team through his
logic and bis consistency. In his
speech on trusts at Milwaukee, the
President said: "Not only is the leg
islation recently enacted effective, but
in my judgment it was impiacticable
to attempt more. How does hi
know it is effective until it has been
tried? Again, we all remember that
b was demanding much more on bis
stomping last fall, and when his At
torney General was suggesting to
Representative Littlelield what the
1 resident wanted done. Littlelield
prepared the anti-trust bill and suc
ceeded i n getting i t through
the home, but it was pigeon-holed in
the Senate by order of tho trusts and
with the consent of the President.
In his Milwaukee spench the Presi
dent spoke sarcastically of "alleged
remedies" that "seek to distroy the
disease by killing the patient. He
then added: "Others are so obvious
ly futile that it is somewhat difficult
to treat them seriously or us beine
advanced in good tuitli. mini
among the latter 1 place the effort to
reach the trust question by means of
the tariff. You can, of course, put
an efid to the prosperity of the
trusts by putting an end to the pros
perity of the nation; but the price
for such action seems high." The
prosperity of tho nation has nothing
to do with the prosperity ot the
trusts. The trusts haye emerged
from every panic and business de
pression absolutely, unscathed and
flourishing as before, simply because
the tariff was still there and still do
ing business at the old stand. The
Presideut apparently has changed
his mind about being able to do the
taxpayers of the country some good
by lowering the tariff since he resign
ed from the Free Trade Club in New
York, shortly after he was elected to
the Assembly there in 1884 on an in
dependent, fusion and unti-l'lutt
ticket. He was then speaking stren
tiously for free trade and resigned
only because ho thought and said in
a letter to Poultney Bigelow, that he
thought his mom berslnp would stand
in the way of political promotion.
In other words, principles count for
nothing when the office is in sight.
Again the J resident said in his
Milwaukee speech: "We should be
false to the historic principles of our
government if wo discriminate!,
it her by legislation or udiiunistru
tion, cither for or against n man be
cause of either his wealth or his
poverty." Now, that sounds good,
and itwould be all right if it were
"backed up by deeds;" for, as h
told us lust rummer, "words ar
only good when backed up by deeds."
But the President belongs to a party
that has enacted tariff legislation
which docs discriminate in favor of
a few aiidoagainst the manv, und
which protects monopolies and trusts
while they prey iioii the people, and
which permits them to sell goods to
foreigners at 30 to 100 per cent less
than is charged here. What, then,
becomes of the President's line
phrases? What do these same trust
cure for his "publicity" so long as
he does not tonch te tanlt, wlwh
protects them in their game ef rob
bery? What do they care for his
toy "bureau" and its sham restraints,
f they can keep their tariff privile
There is considerable comment
here over the special train in which
the President nud his companions
are making their Hying trip over the
country, and from the tail gate of
which he is making his bid for the
Republican nomination. 1 hat train
is a marvel ot magnificence, mull
ing like it ever was seen before.
Compared to the President's train
those of King Edward and Kuiser
William look like an American train
of immigrant cars. The fact that
this train is a "deadhead train is
causing the comment here. The
President und his retinue of clerks,
stenographers, newspaper men, tele
graphers, etc., are guests of the rail
road companies over whoso various
lines they are carried m tins superla
tively luxurious style. They enjoy
the "hospitalities" of the railroads,
for if there were any arrangement
for reduced fares it would be a
flagraut violation of the intei state
commerce act and the recently en
acted Erkius law. What do the
people of the country think of the
propriety of the President of the
United States accepting this "dead
head" favor at the hands of the
mil roads when thev urc trains' to the
Cougress and to the administration
almost everv dai and asking favors'
That is a question for the people to
answer. This "deadhead trip is in
striking contrast to unother special
train trip that will leave the city of
Chicago next fall. That special
train will carry a delegation of Con
gressmen and "their .wives for a trip
through the territories of Oklahoma,
New Mexico, Indian Territory and
Arizona, in order that fhe members
thus carried might sec for themselves
the country and the -people in those
territories that were denied state
hood bv the Republican party. The
entire expense, of this trip, train,
mileage and everything, will be paid
out of the pocket of the public
spirited democrat, William Randolph
Hearst. Ho is doing it for the bene
fit of the people of those territories
and not as a nleaMiro junket for
congressmen, lle.willdoit because
he believes those people should have
justice at the bunds of Congress, and
he is not asking any favors at the
hands of the railroads. Which
method of special training over the
country do the people think is more
Wnniiiitr of these two. and which
the more truly American in spirit?
Things are very dull politically in
Washington but once in awhile some
member of Cougress drops in to do
some work In-fore the departments
and talks polilics to the newspaper
men at night in the corridors of the
hotels. Some of the leaders oi tne
Democralia-partv were ln-re recently
and they discussed the probabilities
and possibilities of the future of the
party und possible or probable candU
dates for the presidency on the demo
cratic ticket. It is the consensus of
opinion among those to whom
have talked that no man can or
ouirht to be nominated w ho did not
loyally support the party and the
ticket in '9(S and and 1900, aad that
will eliminate several names that
have been mentioned in this con
nection. Among them is the name
of David li. trancis, of Missouri
There, is no doubt that some 'of tin
friends of the latter arc quietly start
ing a boom for him as a sort of s
feeler. They figure that he will ac
quire great, prestige as the head of
tho World's Fair, and that the con
vention will be held in St. Louis on
account of tho Fair. They Seeln to
forget that the people won't forget
that he was a bolter m 1896, and
that he can not carry his own state
delegation in the convention. Sena
tor Gorman has his friends smoti
those who have talked recently,' and
so has Judge Parker, of New York.
1 hey nearly all, agree that the man
should come from the East, und one
man who is a leader of the party on
the lloor of the House said the other
duy thut ther was a man in the
East who, would have to be reckoned
with us u potent factor before the
next convention, und who, he suid,
was the real hero of the masses of
the people in this country, and that
man is William Randolph Hearst.
Prosperity strikes" is tho very
significant . designation of n New
York newspaper for the strikes on
April 1, when several hundred work-
iigmen stopped work because their
demands for higher wages ivero re
fused. The workingnieu are simply
striking for some of the prosperity
which the trusts and monopolies
have been enjoying for several yours.
The workingm'en, along with" the
rest of us, have been paving the high
prices and rates which have made
the trusts und railroads prosperous,
and they are now asking for their
share of prosperity. Asa matter of
fact it will take an increase of 40 in
inoncp wages to put real wages as
high as thev were in 18!i7. for. ac
cording to bun's tables of price.?, the
cost of living is 40 higher now than
in 1897. Yet we call this prosperity.
