Description: President Appoints Brother-in-Law

The President has appointed his brother-in-law, N. D. Bacon, who is a straight-out Republican, Superintendent of the custom house at Toledo, Ohio. The Democratic press has always been unanimous in condemning nepotism in Republican Presidents. How many of them will have the independence to condemn it in an alleged Democratic President? If it was a prostitution of a public trust for a Republican President to have the names of his kin folks placed upon the government pay roll, it occurs to us that it is none the less unbecoming in a Democratic President.
