Wahiiinoton, May 7.—President
Cleveland's letter to Gov. Stone, of
Mississippi, is construed here to mean
that officeholders who differ in opinion
from the administration must be tem-
perate in their criticism. From time
to time complaints are made bv ad-
ministration democrats throughout
the states that United States marshals,
attorneys, postmasters ami other offi-
cials habitually denounce Mr.Cloveland
as an agent of Wall street, and his
cabinet officers as mere tools of east-
ern cormorants. It s understood that
the president ha> no fault to find with
officeholders who differ in opinion
from him. 1 Jut Mr. Cleveland and his
cabinet officers do not believe that it is
proper for men holding office under
the administration to habitually de-
nounce the president and members of
