TO TALK OF POLITICS
HE ONLY SMILES
EX-PRESIDENT SEEMS PLEASED
WITH ATTENTIONS THAT HAVE
BEEN SHOWN HIM.
Steers Clear of Politics in Pleasant
Interview With a Newspaper
Man.—Does Not Say He is
Out of Public Life.
Princeton, May s.—Former Pres
ident Grover Cleveland reached his
home yesterday evening somewhat fa
tigued by 'his journey from St. Louis,
but highly pleased with, the demon
strative welcome accorded him in the
west. After he had dined he received
a reporter for the Now York Llerald in
the reception room of the comfortable
old-fashioned house in which he is liv
ing happily here within a stone’s
throw of the Princeton University
In the course of the pleasant con
versation which followed Mr. Cleve
land was given half a dozen oppor
tunities to declare his attitude toward
the presidenttial nomination of 19U4,
but. he skilfully parried all questions
bearing directly upon his own polit
ical future or that of his party.
If Ire regards himself as permanent
ly out of the field of available pres
idential candidates he studiously re
frained from saying so or even from
hinting that lie prefers the classic re
tirement of his Princeton, home to a
re-entrance into the activities of public
If one might judge by the smile
with whiph Mr. Cleveland greeted the

;Vew Jersey Mack,
of Buffalo, as fairly placing him in the
field as the hope of the new Democ
racy, then it is fair inference that Mr.
Cleveland regards himself —to use the
time-worn phrase of politics—as in
the hands of his friends.
Gratifying to Him.
Mr. Cleveland spoke with sincere
warmth of the magnitude of the St.
Louis Exposition that is to be and of
the hearty spontaneity of the ovation
he received there last Thursday.
“Everywhere,” he said, 1 met with
a cordial reception, which of course
could not bo but gratifying to a man
who had long been out of public life.
As for the prospects of the exposition,
they seem to me most flattering. The
enormous crowds that attended the
detention ceremonies attest the great
interest the west is taking in, the en
terprise The buildings give every
promise of being completed in time,
and it is evident already that the af
fair is going to be an epoch marking
one in the grandeur of its conception
and the magnitude of its scope/’
It was remarked by Mr. Cleveland
that here in the east Democrats and
Republicans alike had been in the tre
mendous demonstration for him in St.
Louis, a hotbed, as it is, of (he explod
ed doctrines of Bryanism—a political
significance greater in its meaning
than a mere tribute to his personali
ty as former President of the United
"You must have observed,” was said
to him, “that such an ovation in Mis
souri is now being interpreted as mak
ing you a formidable factor in the next
The sage of Princeton smiled, as if
the suggestion wore not at all dis
pleasing to him; but he was on his
guard in a moment.
“Natural to Americans.”
“Oh, I attach little significance to
that," he said. “It is natural for
Americans to show their respect and
approval in these demonstrative ways
when they meet one who lias held
high official posts of honor through
their preferment. Of course it is
pleasant and gratifying to he the ob
ject of such a spontaneous welcome. 1 ’
1 next asked the former President
if he had seen The Herald of today, in
which he was hailed as the party lead
er, as the “sun of the new Democra
cy.” for 1904.
“Yes, said Mr. Cleveland, with an
other oi' his gracious smiles, which
seemed indicative of anything but dis
pleasure. “Yes, 1 read that while on
the train today, but surely you cannot
expect me to discuss the flattering
tifiati- Oat wfriend, p.re partial
enough to say about me.”
"It will occur to many Herald read-

ers,” I replied, “that when such prom
inent Democrats as former Senator
Smith and Norman E. Mack come out
and openly advocate the renomination
of Mr. Cleveland next year as the one
sensible thing for the party to and
will occur to many that, this fairly
places Mr. Cleveland in the field for
the nomination, and the public will
naturlly be interested to know what
Mr. Cleveland says about it.” .
Mr. Cleveland laughed good-natured
ly, but he raised his hand in a de
precating gesture as he said:
“I am Happy Here.”
“Oh, no, I cannot consent to discuss
politics, nor can I now say anything
about tile future of the Democracy
or the outlook for 1904. I saw 7 Mr.
Mack while in the west. He is a per
sonal friend, and naturally he enter
tains friendly sentiments.”
“Mr. Cleveland," the interviewer
ventured, “it is generally understood
that you are very happy in the quiet
little home life of your retirement here
in Princeton, and by some it is doubt
ed whether you would care to surren
der these joys of private life for a re
turn into the whirl of policies even
should the call come for you to do
Again Mr. Cleveland waived his
hand deprecatingly, and he replied:
"It is true that I am very happy
lie did not add, however, that anew
summons to duty would find him un
willing to heed the call. It, would
have been easy for him to have said
that he is out of public life forever,
but he neither said it nor hinted it.
It was an interview significant rath
er from what Mr. Cleveland refrained
front saying than for what he actually
said. I tried to induce him to speak
of Mr. Bryan’s efforts to continue to
direct (ho party policies, but ho again
warned mo that I was trenching upon
topics which he did ,not think it would
he wise or timely to discuss now.

An accident occurred on the Atlan

morning, 'which, while jt furnished
considerable amusement for those who
saw it, came very near killing six ne
groes, one was injured and the other
five, while not at all hurt, were very
near frightened to death. It seems
that a force of six negroes were at
work unloading a box car loaded with
cross tics. They were unloading them
from the right hand side of the car.
It seems that an engine was at work
on the wharf, shifting other cars
around, etc This car, in which the
negroes were at work, was lying di
rectly across a track and tile shift

and it was turned completely over, ne
groes, crossties and all.
It was, of course, impossible to tell
from the outside whether or not any
of the negroes were seriously Hurt, as
they were covered by the car. One
by one, in a few minutes they came
creeping out ttie side of the car. For
tunately the workmen had unloaded
all ties on tHo other side of the car

CMIZEN IALKS OE
H c Reviews Lengthy Report of Mr.
Johnson and Offers a Few
Editor Brunswick- News:
After careful study of Mr. Johnson's
report upon our system of sewerage
to my mind it leaves its true condition
as much, in doubt as ever. 1: seems
from the report that In- confined this
inspection to the mains entirely and
must have from tin- short time con
sumed in the inspection. I take that
lie made no inspection of the literal
drains —the most important part, of
Hie entire system, and one where the
greatest danger lies.
The mains would very naturally he
hep! in better condition from the mere
fuel of I lie large amount of water flow
ing.. in t nrough the sub soil drainage,
•i'liis would have ifinleiicy to keep the
mains open and free of sewage, while
the literals which convey the sewage
to tlie mins does not have that ad
vantage and must depend upon the
Hush tanks when in working order
and tin- small amount of water used
in flushing closets. To carry the
sewage to the literals, then often a

ihi- mains. A lateral could become
obstructed with ’ils many house eon

entire portion of the city, and yet
lie- mains lie in good condition. 1
see from the report, that tile Mans
jield sii.-e: drain from the main well
to Cochran avenue' is almo.-t entirely
elear of sand but from that point to
head of main ttie sand gradually in
creases until the main at the head
is almost tilled with sand
W’iiui are the conditions we find at

that portion of the main cleaned out
as often as the conditions require it.
Tlie report leaves us in doubt as to
the true condition of the system. As
1 consider the house drains and lat
erals of the greatest importance,
and that with tlie exception of the
two drains mentioned in the report
none of the others were inspected.
There can he no doubt there has been
a great deal of defective plumbing
and house drainage done and unless
the house drains and laterals are in
spected and kept in proper order we
can expect serious trouble to arise.
The mere fact of the main sewers
being in very good condition is no
guarantee that the entire system is
ill proper shape.
And I do hope that our board will
not be lulled into security by the par
tial report made and cease their ef
forts to place the system in first, class
condition, and keep it so.
What we need is a competent mo
di anical engineer to take charge of
the system and put it in good conci
tion and keep it up to tiial standard.
The money spent in that way would
give a greater return than any that
has been spent by the board.

The Record had encountered a se

After tlie gale abated the Record was

She drifted about, for some time until
