The pretence of the Congressional Campaign Committees is all that relieves Wash- Wash- wkiou rrom utter aullncss a to news and. indeed. these oraanixations liave not. as yet. produced much that Is combustible. Their work, so far. seems to have been formal. The time for pyrotechnic display has not come. but. as only five weeks or the campaign remain, we mar exriect tbe nre to fly soon. Tbe President remains at Buzzard's Bay and there is nothing In the political atmosphere visible to the naked public eye likely to bring him back to the White House soon. There is one matter which is expected by some people to overwhelm him Immediately upon his re turn, bnt he may refuse to get excited about it. There is the bitter demand lor the head of C. H.J. Taylor, Recorder of Deeds for tbe Dis trict of Columbia. He is a beneficiary of Mr. Cleveland's persistent policy ot giving this profitable office to colored men. Taylor is mild in bis complexion, but aggressive In his personal and political methods. Ue was Minister to Liberia for few months under Mr. Cleveland's first Administration, but didn't like the cliniate, the population or the snakes that infested hia official station, and soon resigned. He halls from Kansas, and his appointment to the Recordership, within the year, was opposed by the people of the di.-trict di.-trict di.-trict without regard to party. Entering upon the duties of his office, he went Into Democratic missionary work, and soon won over a number of col ored Republicans, who were out for positions unuenne uovernment ana weie not going to allow a little thing like party membership to stand in their way. There soon came to be factions, and tbe converts not realizing rat. Id lr on their hopes ot office, there has been 'hair in the air" for several weeks. Taylor is charged with having canvassed among the colored office-holders office-holders office-holders and employes In the departments to raise a polftical fund, to be applied to the redemption and regeneration of colored Republicans generally. For this the Civil Service Commission is after him notiy. I hey have investigated the matter thoroughly, and have charges ready for the consideration of the President. It is not easy for a conservative and reason able citizen to take sides in this quarrel. Very few iople would shed tears over tbe bounce- bounce- meutof Taylor, but on the other liaud a vie tory for tbe Civil Service autocrats would not be welcome. The President will hot be sup ported. . probably, by public sympathy whichever course he may take. As to his de cision there can now be only 'guess work, bnt a pretty good guess would be that Taylor will be permitted to remain in office on a promise to be good, oud not to persist in his scheme to raise a campaign fut;d. Indeed. Taylor is said to have restrained blmself already under the threats which have been made. .-he .-he to to In THE SUPEElaE C0UET. tbe is
