Bttexaocea of the politician are often di

pretty nearly tbcvr red opinion. From
their public talk", too snppose that the

thinks the cause of silrcr 'would be great
ly benefited by the withdrawal of Se wall.
Mr. 8ewall haa added to the difficulties
of the situation bt his positive statemeDt
that he does not intend to withdraw,
which is thought to be iotended as a hard
lap at those who were scheming to get
him off the ticket.
White 'Terybody wishes tn see the
Postal Serr-.ce of the country brought to
the highest possible efficacy, there are tew
people who bwlleve that waking the em
ployes spies opon each other will h-!
things along in that direction. HowereT,
axuooy the -few who do believe in the spy
system are the Post Office Department
' official, who hare just issued a circular
to the Railway Mat! Service Cieiks, cil'
ing their attention to the general order
issned last winter, requiring tmployes t:
report casen of irregu'arity and miscon
duct of any employes which come to
their aowledge to the clerks of divisions
to be I or warded to Washington, and
wanusg them of poaisbment :o come if
they do not obey those orders. Remem
bering the" scorn with which school child
ree treated the "tell-tale" of ths school
and that men axe but grown up school
children, it is not surprising that this
order hae been quietly igocied in the past,
nor with it be surprising if it continues to
be ignored, nolwiUla&nding these threats.
While I do not assert that he will do
so, nobody need be surprised if Secretary
-Carlisle should go to Kentucky auJ take
the stump for Palmer and Bukoer, It is
known tliat he fceU very sore ov, r the
flings which Bryan and other stump
speaktr krerve made at bis management
of the Treasury and that he would like to
see Kentucky carried by McKinley; also
that he has said that he believed it possi
ble for Palmer and BucLoer to gel 40.000
votes in Kentucky. If they could get
halt that n amber, McKinley would be
certain to carry the state. Secretary
Carlisle boa a strong prsorjal follow ing
in Kentucky and the Bryan managers
weald dialike very much to s e h m
take the stump in that state. The three
states in which the Indianapolis ticket is i
expected to get votes eoough to be a fc
tor ia the result are Kentucky, Illinois i
and Indiana. In many of the other states -there
will be no Palmer and Euckoer
electors voted for. ,
