The Bo1oks Shl Be Examined. When Mr. Hendricks told the Demo Crats of Indianapolis on his return from the Chicago Convention, in referring to the recently discovered frauds and steal ings at Washington: "We need to have the books of the Government otlices opened for exam;nation," he gave ut terance to one of the most urgent de mands of the times. For more than twenty-three years these books have been exclusively in the hands of Republican partisans, who have manipulated them to conceal the corruption, the robberies and the rascal ities of the their employers. Every attempt to explore the records thor oughly and to bring out into the sun light .he hidden proofs of guilt, has failce fr ,m the opposition, the collusion or the matnagement of Republicans in Ciongress and in ollicial life. Investigations have gone to a certain point, and like thatof the Springer cem mittee at the late sessin, they have in variably stopped, or have been success fully obstructed when the scent was keenest ...

The Dematnertle Sitatlon., The Democratic canvass is progress' Ing quietly and serenely. Those who have the campaign in charge are ap- 1 parently surrounded by an atmosphere f of confidence that is rarely felt at the beginning of a great political contest. The confidence which the Democratic leaders feel seemn to be warranted by the state of public opinion-that con servative public opinion which makes its influence felt as we sometimes see a great wheel moved by invisible and noiseless machinery. There is much in the present situation to remind one of the situation in 1876, albeit the conti dence of the more thoughtful observers is greater now than it was then. The issue then was upon administrative re form, and this issue, important then, hAs become paramount. People who have a real and abiding interest in the i honest and e onomical ailuinistration of public affairs perceive clearly that the only road to any species of reform. either in taxation or in expenditure, is In the direct...
