the a the for sugar has as on domestic so required WASBHSOTOIf LETTEB. [From Our Regular Correspondent] WASHINGTON, Aug. 27, 1894. Mr. Cleveland's widely advertised back-bone has apparently turned to jelly. The tariff bill which he so bit- tprly abused is to be the law of the land at midnight to-day, because he lacked the nerve to veto it. If instead of affecting the interest of thousands, nay, millions, of people, it had merely effected the interest of one poor devil •who had sought relief from Congress he would have sprung a veto on it quick enough. Bah! Let the country country hear no more of this man's courage. courage. He has the courage of the bully and braggart only. He is always ready to jump on some little thing but when it comes to something big he ignores it. No wonder Mr. Cleveland has not acted upon the report of the civil service service commission, recommending the dismissal of the blatant demagogue, C. H.'J. Taylor, whom he made recorder recorder of d'eeds for the District of Columbia, for having violated the law against soliciting campaign contributions contributions from government employes. That reporfgives him the alternative of snubbing the civil service commission and winking at a violation of the civil service law, for which he always professed professed to have such great respect—he has always carried an overstock of professions—or of dismissing his special protege from an office to which he should never have been appointed and probably never would have been had not the Senate refused to confirm his nomination to a diplomatic position. position. Taylor says he has no fear of dismissal. He has made Mr. Cleve- 1 land believe that as the head of the negro Democratic league, an organization organization composed of negroes who have been given office and those who expect expect by this administration, he controls a large number of votes ; hence his certainty of being protected. As a matter of fact those who should know do not believe that there is one thousand thousand negro Democrats in the United States.
