As long ns a certain order of hctive and energetic men nre per. mitted fo enjoy tho fruits find the sweets of oiTieo, they nre content to sup port those in power having this patron ise to dispense. But the moment you deprive these individuals of such com fortable enjoyments, instantly they cry lustily for a change, by which thoy mean that tho ins Khali bo removed from place and the outs (themselves) put into the vacnnsies thus made.
