Tbe lodlana legislature has thus far with comtueDdable caution and marked wisdom The caucus action la regaro to the appointing power, whllu not satisfactory to a number o/ Republicans, is ia many respects to be commended. Seoaior Shlvely's bi, partisan boards prevented political notion and therefore left the control of the slate ioblilutlooa under a man- »j(emoDt ihe Republican platform do nounoed and the people repudiated at the polla. U was tbo pari of wisdom to destroy the system and to change the management that the Republican pledges of non-partisan control might be fulfilled but It was also a duty to do this consistently atd herein arose a conflict. It has been a well defined proposition of the Republicans that the appointing power constitutionally lay with the Governor and to adhere to this proposition and carry out the platform pledges at the same time became an Impossibility. The caucus for the nonce ignored the constitutional question to correct the pro- gent evil aod, following Democratic preoedent, lodged the appointing po we r In the State officers. The conflict of duty was unfortunate but either course had Ua objections. Perhaps it would have been ivleor to have enacted the law and awaited the action of the people at the polls next year, but that was not the opinion of the caucus. The Republican Siate officers did not seek the honors, but will, no doubt, if required to act. see that the Repub. llcan pledges of honest, efficient, non panljan control are kept, by the selection of such trustees as shall by tneir character, standing- and abilities give assurance of such management. Tne best interests of the people are fully promoted by the action taken and tbe ciuestion at best becomes a technical one. There has been no serious disagreement on the subject as alleged in Democratic papers and no departure from Republican pledges, all of which will be fulfilled with the greater power yet to bo granted by the people in 1896.

FREE THE Damocratic party is fast getting the public debt back to tbe high figure It was when Grover Cleveland handed, over the reins o' government to Banjamin Harrison la 1SS9. The difference between tbe effects of Republican and Democratic rule are clearly .shown by a statement of tbe interest-bearing debt at different periods. On March i, 1889, when Harrison was Inaugurated the debt was $889,853 990 and when his term expired In 1893 it had' been reduced to $585,029,100. -Then the Democrats took hold and under tbe Cleveland administration the debt had been raised on Feb. 1, 1895, to $684,- S23.710. When the new bonds are sold H will amount to ?7J6.72S,710. It will not take long at this rate to make the debt as large as Cleveland left U in 1889, and from which the Republican party reduced tbe debt over f300,000,000 in four years.

Special Correspondence. New York, Feb. 13, .SUi. People are discussing, now that he is de&d, tbe value of Ward McAllister. The «ei that he represented was at least a conservative one, and bis usefulness consisted, in as far as poe- elble, keeping from Its portals those people who lacked birth or reputation, and It, can not ba doubted that, no matter how much money was offered to this man, he never pushed, aa he might have doae, any one socially. There will always be drawn a line that divides society. This is tbe un changeable law which all wise people recognize. There are people as good, as handsome, as rich, as those counted In the notable Four Hundred, but they have not achieved tbe position occupied by their more fortunate sisters and brothers. Mr. McAllister, a man well-born, well-educated, and with a curious ability for arranging festivities of all kinds, was selected, not by a raao, but by a woman, to do exactly what he did; to see, in the car-e-ol eub- scrlptlon dances, that every one had their rights; to put before the com. mlttee, composed of men, the names of strange visitors, and these men, not Mr. McAllisjer alone, decided whether the invitation asked for should be sent. 13 UT SUE \VON HKH WAV. Of course, Influence counted for something, but usually birth and breed- Ing had much more to do with it. Every New Yorker remembers how many years ago the entree was given to a young woman who had nothing to commend her in the eyes of the world but her beauty, which was great. The pretty, but simple frocks which she wora wore earned by her, as her dally work was drawing designs for carpels, a work which she did at home; home being represented by the quiet boarding house, in which she lived with her father and mother. Mr. McAllister met her, found her pretty and Interesting, anxious to go Into society, refusing to except any but that which she considered best, and be opened its doors for her. For a number of years she was quoted as tho belle at all tbe swell dances, and finally made a very rich marriage. Her acquaintances in the fashionable world would have been glad to have assisted her in making her marriage a function of great Importance; but, with wonderful good sense, sh« insisted on having the core- mony take place In tho pirlor of the house in which she boarded, and to it were invited only a few from among her fashionable friends, and her own kin. SCHEMING AND I'LAXKING. Poverty was not a bar in the eyes of this man toward achieving a good position socially, and it is a ,well. known fact that in many instances, where mothers begged for invitations for their daughters, he did all ID his power for them; but that awful Vehm- gerlcht, tho committee, decided who should not be among them when there was a sound of quiet and well bred revelry by night. To sit on the top rung of the social ladder and look with fastidious coldness through lorgnettes, framed in diamonds, at the other climbers, Is the ambition of every woman who is rich, and feels that she ought to be where she is not. Tho scheming and the planning that goes on to obtain what they want, is, of course, disgusting, and tends to make tho women who do it, mean and low. The "charity dodge" as it is called, which meant getting an appointment on the committee of various hospitals, giving enor« mously, and, in turn. getting the desired invitations, has long ago been played out. Women will take from Mrs. Parvenu all the money imaginable, for their pet charities; but this will not buy an entrance to their bouses, or anything more than the coolest bowing acquaintance. JOiS. FAR WEST. : A little woman whol* here now, and who cornea, like many other good things, from out of tbe We»t. Is determined to get there, t bave watched her witb much interest, and I im con* vinced that if she Is only patient for a little longer, she will succeed." Hav. ing plenty of money ber houieJi magnificent. Her husband • .probably never read anything beyond hit busi- neit letters; but her library wonld.be \ a delight to a book lo^er and ehe possesses volumes "oughi forturby experts, that would make tbe millionaire bibliophile, a kleptomaniac Her pictures are by the b-st artUta -in the world. Everything aooui her in Irreproacha ble. She has given to charity until her name Is welt known. In turn, ohe has received from the women she would like to go among Invitations to enormous leas, inai are really social clearing-house:, but she tas bsenwixe enough to accept noce. On the day of ibe lea, she sends to her hostess a magnificent box o' oi-chidi 1 , and a little note which lelln, that us she Is something of an invalid, she must deny hcrcolf tbe pleasure of going to large assemblies. In time ehe will ba asked to luncheons. Then she will give one, and In a little longer time she will be ASKED TO DINNERS, and that will mean that she hac accomplished what ul-e DBS wished, and has got there. "There" representing what she supposes is tho land of delight. Many social climbers make the mistake of being satisfied with the visits of the men i f a family, and ihis usually means that they never get acquainted with the women. My little western lady is wise. She is adopting what is vulgarly known as the "domestic dodge," is ready to take much advise in regard to her little people from elderly dames, and is horrified at the young married women who take away the bachelors from the single girls. Mothers feel that they need not fear. What she will do when she is in it is Impossible to say, but I have »n Idea that onco accepted, ehe will be less domestic and more flirtatious, less pleasing and more positive. SMALL CHANCE FOB 'NEW YOKKEKS. A New York woman says that any woman who was not born or raised In New York can get into any eot she deslrea. When it is realized that, from the innumerable women who have what Is known as "the eossip of Information" and can tell on whatun- fashionable street the climber happened to be born, how she was willing at one time to go to public dances, and who her relations are, her chances are very slight. To my way of thinking, the cleverest thing Du Maurier wrole about MRS. PON30NBT DE TOJ1KYNS was this: After many invitations and much toadying, tbe Duchess has called at Mr. Tomkyns. To tho hor. ror of the hostess, her husband's aunt, an old Scotch woman, married to the game-keeper on the Duchess's estate in Scotland, appears at the same time. Mrs. de Tomkyns instantly feels that, socially, she is ruined, inasmuch as tho conver. sation between the two is varied and extensive. When the Duchess is in her carriage again with Lady Alicia, she says: "Dearme, I had no idea the Ponsonby de Tomkyns had such respectable relations. A nice old woman the wife of my gamekeeper, was there. It does make one feel more comfortable to know that they have deceBt kin." Decent kin, however, Is not particularly appreciated among Americans. Another social climber is a pretty woman who has a house, that if it were In Florence, would be called a palace. She is, I fear me, not fated to get where she wishes. Just now the newspapers have LONO ARTICLES ABOCT HER. Her petticoats and ber frocks, her slippers and her bath tub; the pic. lures she owns and her horses are all described. Nobody mentions her husband. Je has decent kin. but there was a time which id not referred to in society, spent by him in tbe penitentiary. During these years a devoted wife visited him whenever she could, saved all tee money possible to buy luxuries for him, and in return for this be left her, and in a State wbere divorces may be gotten as easily as a postage stamp, obtained one from the woman who bad made ber life a sacrifice to j.hls wickedness- In a large Western city be made a fortune lor himself. Then be married a young and pretty woman. A great effort was made for a position in this Western city, but, thank goodness, there are alwaye tome people wbo appreciate the value of honesty, and a failure re- lulted. The dinners, the luncheons and tbe theatre parties were only attended by toadies and people wbo owed their llringi to the millionaire. So these two people left the West and are now bere.

X Y. to pain what she wishes, but the Patriarchs, with their dignity, and oven the "Howling: S»ells" with their frivolity, scarcely care to 'accept, DO matter how fine the orchids may be, the society of a notorious thief. It is true those days spent in the penitentiary date thirty years back, but a thief is a thief, and there IB no blotter sufficiently absorbent to take from him such a vice as that, I think It right there should be social linos. I think It right there should be a Vehmgericht asd formed of men; formed of men who wish to make honor the atmosphere breathed by their wires and daughters, and insist upon decent conduct and good reputations being 1 attached to women and men who stand close, socially, to the women of their household. You and I, and our neighbor, read about certain people and believe that they are in society, that they bav passed under the blue ribbon and ar counted among the elect. My dea friend, not one-half of the peopl whose frocks and belongings are cribed, who are, in fact, the joy of ih reporter, have gotten into the clo portal where society in New York i governed by women who, like Duchess APPRECIATE DECENT KIN. • And decent kin doesn't meai thieves, scandalmongers and women whose whiteness of character i blurred oy a touch of mauve. Don' you think I am right? I am sure yoi do. Whether you are a man or i woman, you appreciate the fact tha any society worth going into, an; people worth going among, are tbosi who heJp form the decent kind Decent is a good word. It Is plain Saxon, and It covers a number o virtues Decency means honesty and puriiy, and ia ihe adjective that is most desirable whether it is attachec to a mac or woman. Think as I do about it. Weed your list and demand that decency shall characterize your visitors. Harfcb? Not a bit. I am very weak on forgiveness, but still I do think that to make the world better, decency and decent kin should be insisted upon oy all women as positively as it is by BAB. FAMOUS CAT FANCIERS.

We hear a. good deal about the simplicity of lifu in America in the eighteenth century. 5:13-5 the Boston Journal, but there was pr*bably greater attention paid by men to the matter of dress than is paid to-day. George "Washington, who to the great and careless world is either in uniform or solemn black, was fussy enough at the age of fifteen to make this note for the benefit of his tailor: "Memorandum— To have my coat made by the following- Directions, to be mode a Frock with a.

A writer in the Boston Post, commenting- on the curious flora!

The 'acts in the case are these: It is not a flower at all, but a species of fungi, and ± One -i finds a specimen of it but once r twice in a lifetime" it is because he pends his life on paved streets, in. fSce rooms, or confines his rambles to i "two by twice" city lot. It is, as the 'ost writer rightly says, known as the corpse" or "g-host" plant, and it grows nly in the darkest and dampest nooks f the dense forests. The early settlers i Missouri and other portions of tbe west will remember it as the Indian ipe. It has a single bell-shaped .imitation flower on tbe end of a perfectly colorless stem.
