liisMAUCK svaausTS Hint there nio
Xv, a tides to tlio labor question. lie
fenrs Hint llio ctTcct of tho eight-hour
imitation and of tho discussion of the
wngo question may discourngo em
ployers to such nn extent tlmt tlioy will
abandon the struggles Into which they
havo been lately foiccd. This is a
view of the subject well worthy of tho
consideration of tho general public,
and especially of tho labor leaders. Of
coiusc, It Is not to bo presumed that
business will bo generally abandoned
by employers. At the same time, It is
proper to keep in mind tho fact that
capitalists may seek some employment
for their money which will not subject
them to these frequent labor fights.
Senator Mitchell's motion for tho
election of Scnntors directly by tho peo
ple will probably win three or four
votes In the Senate, and, it may be,
fifteen or twenty in tho House. Tho
country Is not linnkerinir, after saddling
itself with additional responsibilities.
jcal'zcs that that Is tho busintss oj
tho Government, and when tho Gov
ernment fails in dealing justly with its
charge in this respect then tho country
gets in its fine work, vigorously ener
gizes tbo too of its boot and hoists an
other paity into power. This may not
be the best conceivable method of Rep
lcsentativo Government, but It is tho
best which wo have on hand at pres
ent. There nn fcOME surprisingly tender
consciences among members of Con
ciess. For Instance, Mr. Savers of
Texas and Mr. Bland of Missouri have
covered into tho Tieasury tho money
due them from tho Silcott defalcation
and which the Court of Claims held tbo
Government should refuud to them. It
is understood that thcie aic some other
Congressmen who propose to punuu
tho fumo course. Yet tho tender-con-scienccd
gentlemen named did nothesi
tato yesterday to voto In favor of steal
ing tho Htciary property of aliens,
Yerily, some consciences work quecily.
A Milwaukee woman was com
pelled at a recent fire to jump from a
thlruVstoTy"' window witU her babe in
cr arms. There must urtvc been some
thing wrong about tho woman, tho
babe or tho iiro-cscape. To decido tho
point requires further information.
It seems that the Chinese Exclusion
act docs not cxcludo Chinamen from
entering into tho United States and
going into business in their usual In
dustrious'manncr. Thoy come by way
of Canada and Mexico and will con
tinue to come regardless of restrictions.
Chinamen are built that way.
McitAT IIalstead, accused of oppos
ing the re-election of Senator Evarts,
says ho is an admirer of Mr. Evarts'
serenity, and everybody is puzzled.
Tho peculiar hearing of tbo remark is
evidently in tho application of it.
None op tiie workingmen who pa
raded yesterday in Ilydo Park, London,

They como In tho early spring, work
through tho summer and fall 'and go

tho hills without thought of tbo trustful
maiden left behind and the natural con
sequences. A Norwegian statistician says mar
Tiage increases tho death-rato amomr
women and decreases it among men.
This is a new vlow of tho matter,
n rulo a contrary opinion has pre
vailed. It has been supposol that
women fared well In marriage and that
men were slowly but surely killed out
right. The Brunswick (Mo.) Telegraph
gives an instanco of tho ruling passion
strong in death. Tho spiro of the
Main Street Baptist Church fell re
cently. Instead of falling to tho ground,
as was expected, the spiro went Into the
cistern, and tho joke passed very readily
around; "Baptist to tho last."

be explained. Under somo circum
stances the policy of silence is of great
value. But where personal character

Georoe Kknnan. who has been ac
cused of exaggerating stories of Siberian
ntrocllles, said last Wednesday at Phila
delphia that ho would meet tho charges

far as Washington Is concerned, this
fact Is duly recognized iu tho multt
