It is a matter of surprise to us tbat the owners of the Post and Tribune should Mf.s thpmselves so strongly against the appointmeut of Mr. Bloom as Keceiyer ot the Land Office in Detroit, for the reasoi tliat ín the great contest in Detroit be tween ex-Qov. Bagley and Baldwi foi the Senators'nip, cvery one of them, as well as Mr. Bloom, eurneitly supported Mr. Baldwin. When the time came when Mr. Baldwiu and nis friends found tha he could not be elected, most oí them wen for Mr. Conger and elected him. So he would never have been elected if it had not been from the faet that Mr. Baldwin and the most of the anti-Bagley men ii Detroit and elsewhere preferred Conger to Bagley. In view of the fact that the present principal owners of the Posi and Tribune, at the time preferred Mr. Con ger's election to Bagley's, it is in bad taste for them now to join the Bagley men ii thetr cry against Mr. Bloom, whose only offeiiBe seems to be that he voted in ac cordance with the wishes of the Baldwin men.
