Jealously is rampant among our public men, ,
especially among those who aspire to be lead
ers. The ambitious members of the House of
Repiesontatives ou both sides are as jealous as
a lot of ballet dancers. It was very conspic
uous among the Republicans during the con
test for the Speakership at the beginning of the
present Congress. Some showed it more and
some less, but as a matter of fact McKinley and
Burrows, and to a ccitain extent Cannon and
Henderson, arc still mad with Reed for having ,
beaten them in that couteEt. Butterwortb, too,
thought with more or less reason that he ought ,
to have been in that contest, and he is not
without some little feeling of jealously both ;
toward Reed, who was olected, and McKinley,
for whom ho as an Ohio man had even to keep ,
out of the contest. This jealousy manifested
itself conspicuously on the Democratic side of
the House last week. To fill the vacancy on '
the Committee on Rules, made by the transfer
of Mr. Cai lisle to the Senate, Speaker Reed
appointed Mr. Mills, of Texas, to be a '
member of the committee. Mr. Mills, Inti letter j
addieesed to the Speaker aud which was read in i
the House, declined the appointment. When !
waited upon afterward by the newspaper cor- '
respondents he explained that his reason for i
declining was that he had previously served j
with Mr. Reed on the Committee on Rules and
on the Ways and Means Committee and could
never get along with him. Others, however,
icfuse to accept peisonal dislike of another
member as a valid leason for declining to serve
on the committee with hiin. They aro rather
inclined to believe that Mr. Mills's reason for
not acceptiug tho appointment now is that he
was not appointed on the committee at the be
ginning of Congress, or later, when a vacancy
occurred by the death of Mr. Randall. Ho is
said to believe that ho had a better right to the
position than. had Mr. Blount, of Georgia, who
was appointed to succeed Mr.Randall, if, indeed,
he did not think he ought to have- been preferred
to Mr. Carlisle or Mr. Randall at tho beginning.
The question of leadership or sub-leadership
involves much jealousy. Theie seems no way
for a man to get a diploma except by popular
and offlcial recognition; aud the official cannot
always be relied upon to follow tho popular
jccognltion. On the other hand, length of ser
vice doeb not always count. In fact, it is very
seldom that the man of longest seivice is re
gaided as leadei. On the score of senority
Mills, Blount, aud Blond 6tand equal, each
having served continuously since the Forty-third
Congiess. -ny of th'.m was the senior of
Carlisle, who came in only with the Forty-fifth.
Springer and Forney, who have seived con
tinuously siuce the l'oity-fourth, were Carlisle's
seniors. McMillin, who now gets this appoint
ment, which i6 U6uall) supposed to carry a sharo
of leadership with it, began service only Ja the
Forty-sixth. Hatch, of Missouri, is his equal
in length of seivice; and Herbert, of Alabama,
who has served continuously since tho Foity
fifth, is his senior. Buekalew, of Pennsylvania,
is serving only his second term in the House;
but ho was a United States Senator from
1603 to 1SGU; and Representative Holman,
of Indiaua, was a member of tho House
in tho Thirty-sixth Congress; and with tho

Forty-sixth, he has been a member of every
Congress since. So that it is really on talent or
self-assertion and not on seniority that men
seem to base their claim to tho privileges of
leadership. Bynum, of Indiana; Wilson, of
West Virginia, and Breckinridge, of Kentucky,
who have been for some time recognized lead
ers in tho House, came in only with the Forty
ninth Congress, aud Crisp, of Georgia, who has
achieved gieat prominence of late, began ouly
one teim cailier. Roswell P. Flower, while he
served in the Forty-fourth Congress, is now
only serving his second term, yet at the begin
ning of tho sessiou he was given a place on the
Committee on Ways and Means, whose mem-
beiship is generally supposed to be made up of
tho greatest and the best. Under tho Consti
tution of the United States and ever since
the Declaration of Independence was writ

"Two cups of cold tea, with ginger ale on
the side." That is a common order at the
House lestaurant nowadays. Now tho simple
pioposltion to drink whisky or whisky aud gin
ger ale out of a piece of crockery is repulsive to
any man, who, like tho Vice President, is in the
habit of living like a gentleman. Speaker
Reed's recent order that whisky, if taken at all
in the Hoube restaurant, must bt taken in a
1 cup instead of a glass, appeared at
j first to be absolutely prohibitory to men
1 of tasto. But while giving the order the
Speaker furnished to the restaurant-keeper prl
I vately an idea of how he could fix things up so
as to conform to the order and still please his
pntions how, in fact, he could use the cup
without discarding tho glass. The consequence
is that if you go to tho House restaurant now
and order a cup of cold tea with ginger alo on
the bldo you will get a cup aud a saucer; but in
tho cup, which Is only dend-husc size, there is a
neat littlo glass, tho lowor half of which is con
cealed within the cup, while the upper half is
visible above It, What Is within the glass is
not expected to appear above tho crockery line,
so that the eyes of the casual passers-by aro not
offended by the sight of tho abhoirent liquid.
The man who wants It get what he wants, and
tho man who doesn't want it doesn't see it.
Yctlhoioisno telling but the watchful eye
of ihoiefoimer may see through the crockery
fconio day. Everybody remembers that beautiful
littlo story which Tennyson tells about the
cricket players and tho old maid. Tho old
maid's window looked out on tho cricket field,
and tho club's pavilion happened to be located
on the old maid's side of tho field. She sent a
communication to tho captain of the club, com
plaining that tho tent where tho boys dressed
and undressed was right in her view, and 6ho
demauded that it be removed. Tho tent was
lemoved to tho fuither side of tho field, but to
very littlo purpose. Tho old maid wroto to tho
captain again to 6ay that by tho aid of a tele
scope she could sco them still.

schedule as filled up will show that, like David
Coppertleld, I was born, but just wheie I don't
know. My weight, height, and waist measure
all seem to be pretty well understood, and
the sex Is all right, but when it comes to the
family questions, whether I am married or sin
gle, head of family or otherwise, the only thintr
I seemed to know was that I was not the head
of that family. It is some little satisfaction to
me, however, to know that I am not in the po
sition of that poor father of a family who lives
out in Mount Pleasant, and who, on being
asked by the enumerator to state his relation to
the head of the family, said "husband."
The census enumerator's position is not so
embarrassing as was the position of the young
lawyer who called his own father as a witness
in his first case. Lawyers as a rule don't waive
auy of the formalities, and this ambitious
young Blackstone intended to cover the whole
1 giound; so he put his father thiough the whole
process of formal interrogation to which wit
nesses have to submit. "Name, sir?" The
father gave it. Address, occupation, age, etc.
The father answered all the questions as asked.
"Married?" The old man thought the ques
tioning was going too far; so be gave a look of
mild rebuke to the young lawyer and said: "If

The Presbyterian synod by its censure docs
not seem to have done much to reform Presi
dent Ilairisou and Vice President Morton
from the terrible habit of tippling. "1 have
always lived and entertained liko a gentle
man," the Vice President is reported to have
6aid when he was asked what ho had to
say for himself in answer to the synod's cen
sure. President Harrison's defense is substan
tially that as President of tho United States ho
has been compelled to live and eutertain liko a
gentleman, while Mr. Wanamaker's declaration
amounts practically to this, that as Postmaster
General ho regrets that his Sunday-school as
sociations have debarred him thus far from liv
ing and entertaining like a gentleman, but that
(D. V.) ho hopes to do better during tho re
mainder of his official term in Washington.

character of tho evening entertainment was

amusement for tho extraordinary number of
ladies and children who had takeu advantage
of tho beautiful weather to pass tho entire day
at Marshall Hall. The experience of tne past
