utor Morgan, of Alabama, lit tlio tlino
when tho Honiito committed on foreign
relationa hint tho Van Alcn nomination
llrflt under coiiBidorutlon, whothor lie
bolioved that thu United 8tntoH had
iHM'tl of diplomatic repriwntntlvrH
ahroad or whothor, im tliu lata Senator
Plumb, of Kiiiihiih, onoo aniil In debate,
tho rolatloiiK of tho United StatcH with
foreign nntloim were purely commercial
and could ho entrimtod to tho euro of
conmilfl or eoiniucrcial uonta.
Mr. Morgan ia a man of ureat tluonuy
on tho floor of tho nonnto when any
question In which ho ban an active in
tcrcst in under dinmiBHion; hut in private
converwition ho feelH the roHpoimlbility
of liia K)Hition iih chairman of tho coiu
mittuo on foreign relatloim and ho 1h ex
trumcly cautloim in what ho hiivh for
fear of committing hiuiBolf on any hiiIi
ject which that committee hua under
coiiflidorutlon. It would ho manifcutly
improper for him to 11hoiibh tho Van
Alcn cape, ho Haiti, hecaiiHO that wan be
fore tho committee. Hut in regard to
tho diplomatic rcprcHcntatinii of tho
United StatcH in general, honaid that it
wimof tho greatent importance.
"There m tho greateHt noeoHHity," Haiti
Mr. Morgan, "that the United Statt-H
aliould ho roprcHoutcd ahroad. So long
iih wo have diplomatic relatioiiH with
tho uatioiiH of the earth, wo must he
roptcHoiitcd at their capitala by men of
ability ami intelligence."
"Mr. Plumb nald that our relatioim
with other natioim were purely com
mercial and that, therefore, wo could bo
roproHontod iih well by coiihuIh or com
"Mr. Pluinl) did not underHtand the
Hiibject," Hiiid tho Honator. "Our re
latioiiH with foreign nutimiH aie inoro
than commercial: they are diplomatic."
"And you do not take tho 'Hocioty
view' of tho Hiibject with Mr. MeA Water
and believe that our uinlmnnadoin are
intended to represent us only nocially."
"If that was their only function there
would ho no reason for them to exist."
"Can you recall any particular in
stance of recent date when the diploma
tic representatives of the United States
have been of service to this govern
mont." "Not without giving the Hiibject more
thought,' said tho senator: "but a hun
dred Instances could lio cited. Thcie is
not ono of our ministers who has not
done ua sonic signal service. Yes, I can
mention one of recent date. When tho
llehring Sea controversy, which has
just closed, first began Mr. Phelps, then
our representative in England, did good
service for us in tho preliminary negotia
tions." Mr. Ward McAllister, in presenting
tho "society view" of the Van Alen
case, made the point that the United
States had seldom been lepresented
abroad by gentlemen and that the
Roman mission had suiTered particu
larly. American diplomats ahroad
havo received pretty severe handling
from American newspapers and un
doubtedly some of them deserved it.
The instance quoted by Mr. McAllister
of tho minister to Italy who lived in a
third-story back is well matched by the
case of a well-known western man who
went as minister to a semi-barbarous
people eight years ago, and who has
recently been recognized by President
Cleveland again -who said at tho time
of his tirst appointment that he pro
posed to save one-half of his rather
meagre salary and that ho would under
no condition purchase a dress suit; be
cause ho had never worn ono and it was
too expensive. Or there was the cheer
fill Hoosierof Mr. Cleveland's llrst term,
who wrote back from one of the South
American Republics that if some of "the
boys" would couio down there and take
advantage of their opportunities, they
could skill tho innocent native with
neatness and dispatch.
And there was tho other Hoosier who
was charged by democratic papers,
though ho was a democratic appointee,
with receiving commissions from store
keepers in the capital where his legation
was stationed; of acting as a profes
sional guide; of drinking whisky and
playing pokur with his servants, and of
divers other otreiises. And there was
that republican apiKiintee from the
south whoso wife carried into South
America society the impression that the
women of America were addicted to the
rather offensive habit of dipping smilf.
A great many like canes could bo

periences of the local authorities at
Washington with European diplomats
who hang their washing in their front
yards to the great discomfort of their
ueighbois; or the other diplomat who1
sets at defiance the district regulations
and refuses to have the snow cleared on" ,
his pavement in winter, because the I
district authorities car not compel him j
to do ho; or tho minister from South '
America who tried to havo the coach
man of Vice President Mo toil arrested f
for refusing to let tho legation carriage I
come in ahead of his and out of Its
regular order at the theatre, or of the
attaches who go about town at times
smashing windows and Indulging in
other iHilsteroiiH forum of merriment In
defiance of tho H)llee. Or perhaps tho
"society view" of diplomacy at Wash
ington could bo iiiado to include tho
young diplomat who amused himself at
a private reception plying the daughter
of a prominent man with wine, and sue
ceeded so well with IiIh jest that he wiih
"cut" at his chili afterward and he had
to leave tho city. Or perhaps a mutch
for even Mr. McAllister's American
minister in Homo could bo found in the
Italian minister at Washington who
once received visitors in an olllce lit
tered with his wlfo'H dresses and the re
mains of a light breakfast.
Washington has lately been Hooded
with green goods cliculars. This city
has hitherto been regarded as safe from
this species of bunco business, but ap
parently It has been found that there
are people even in Washington who do
not lead the newspapers and can be

The process of gilding the dome of the
new congressional library building, a
stone's tluou from the capital, has pio
grossed far enough to indicate that
when completed this golden dome will
be one of the most conspicuous and
beautiful objects in Washington. Thole
are not many gilded domes in the world,
The Hotel des InvalidcH in Paris, the
Connect lent State House at Hartford,
and the Massachusetts State House at
Itostou aie the best known. The dome
of the new library building is larger
than any of these -two-thirds larger, it
is estimated, than the famous dome of
the State house in Huston. There is a
total surface of K).(KH) square feet to bo
gilded. Moiegold will bo used on this
dome than on any other in the world.
This is appropriate to the now library
building, for the structure will be the
largest of Its kind, covering no less than
four acres. The contract for the gran
ite alone wiih &1,2.0,000, the largest con
tract for stone ever awarded at a single
time. The building will not bo com
pleted for four years. When HnlBlied,
it will have a capacity, according to the
calculations of Librarian SpolTord, to
accommodate all of the books of tho
world for 100 yearn to come, and still
leave seven-eights of its available space
applicable for other purposes. Thu
rotunda is 140 feet in diameter- forty
four feet greater than tho rotunda of
tho Capitol. It will bo finished in
marble from floor to ceiling, and will
surpass oven tho famous reading room
of the llritish Museum.
