Meanwhile the Hon. JEvrEfroxCiiAi)i.nn,who
was to run for Senator Vest's scat on a protec
tive platfonu, seems to have retired Into tho
golden quiets of the moon to reconsider his de
ierminatiou. There is plainly an undercurrent of unrest
active in European politics. The Pope, who
knows as well as any sovereign of Europe all
the movements of the powers, gave utterance
to words that are ominous of war In receiving
some visitors the other day, and the Austrian
Minister of War has declared, in asking a con
siderable increase in the army, that peace was
Fish Commissioner McDonald no doubt
knows a great deal about pisciculture, but the
fact that he is now undergoing an investigation
by a Senate committee shows that his political
education has been sadly neglected. If Mr.
McDonald had taken a few lessons iu political

scientific and other bureaus of the Government
he might easily have avoided all this bother.
The original package excitement has broken
out with fresh violence in Pennsylvania, owing
to the instructions of "Judge Raybukn at Klt
tauing in the case of the agent of an Ohio
brewing firm, who was prosecuted for selling
beer iu original packages. The Judge in his
instructions stuck close to the recent decislou
of the Supreme Coutt and the jury acquitted

black eye to the Pcnnsvlvaniabich license law.
The Republican leaders iu Cougicss are
plainly determined to pas a Federal election

The scheme which was partially agreed upon at
the House caucus last week is of a character
that will wairant the Democrats ingoing almost
any lengths to prevent its passage. If it be

Why should the American people be called
ou to pay 50,000 to perpetuate the fame of
William Henisy Hakuison by erecting a mon
ument on Tippecanoe battle-field V The Amcil-
cau people have gone to some extent into tho
business of perpetuating the fame of their more
or less great men in a less expensive but rather
more effective fashion. They elect the descend,
ants of the great men to office as a token of
regard for their fathers or grandfathers and as a
sign of their susceptibility to the potent charms
of a fame-trumpeted name. This generation of
the American people should be called on to
erect no other monument to William IIenicy
IIaiiuisON than the one they placed in tho
White Houc to him a year ago hist March.
Policemen are human, and as a rule they
have their full complement of the weaknesses
which alilict humanity. Their dally duties are
not emulated to make them tenderhearted
and gentle in manner. The class of citizons
with whom they have chlelly to do business re
gard them as natural enemies, and when tho
officer and a member of this class engage in a
transaction the mental attitude of each party
to It is not of a kind calculated to bring out
the more lovable traits of either. Liberal al
lowance must therefore be made for the po
liceman if in the hurry and scullle aud strug
gle of discharging his duty, or what he regards
as his duty, ho falls at times to preservo that
repose of manner which stamps the caste of
Vero do Vere and generally fallsshortof tho
all-around polish and courtliness which dis
tinguished the late Lord Chktj:utieli. In a
word, a common-sense view of the case should
be takeu and tho exigencies of the policeman's
lot be borne steadily In mind. Hut
the policeman, like every other man,
should have special fltuess for the
duties ho Is called on to perforin. Above
all, n policeman should have self-control, and
lie endowed with a fair degree of physical
strength aud athletic agility, so that he will not
be inclined or obliged to resort to the use of tho
club or the pistol on the least show of resist
ance by those whom he is attempting to arrest
A man of a hasty and violent temper is utterly
unfitted fir the duties of a policeman. An offi
cer who clubs his prisoners, except a3 an ex
treme resort, to saye himself from serious in
jury, or to prevent their escape, should be dis
missed without delay. Whether the complaints
of colored citizens, made public at a mass
meeting a few nights ago, are well or Ill
founded Tiia Hekald is unprepared to 6ay.
They should receive respectful consideration
from the Commissioners, however, aud should
at least serve as a reminder of the great im
portance of haviug intelligent men wko know
how to control their tempers on the polico
"I lecclvcd a letter the other day," said the
Hon. Richard Vnux, tho late Samuel .T.llandall's
picturesque successor from the Third Pennsyl
vania District, "from the widow, as I supposed,
of an old acquaintance of mine. 1 wrote In re
ply a letter In which I said a ureal many hand
sonic things about her husband and condoled
with her over the loss which 1 supposed she had
sustained in his death. This morning an answer
camo from the man himself, who, It seems, really
wrote the first letter, although I took It to bo
from his wife. I don't think he could bo very
much offended at my mistake, because he had
the satisfaction of reading a very eulogistic obit
uary notice of himself."
Representative Culbertson, tho whltc-hoircd
member from tho Erie District of Pennsylvania,
who succeeded the Hon. William L. Scott, has
boon defeated for a ronomluatlon, his friends
charge, by tho machinations of lloss Quay.
When Mr. Culbertson went home recently to look
niter the primaries he found that one of Mr.
Quny'B lieutenants had been at work in the dis
trict setting up tho pins against him. Mr. Cul
bertson gracefully bowed to the inevitable, but
It. is understood ho will not be painfully surprised
if the district is represented in tho Fifty-second
Congress by n Democrat.
Ueprcscutatlvc. lames S. Sherman, of tho Twenty-third
Now York District, one of the young
est niul jolliest members of tho House, looks
younger and jollier than over since It has been
pretty well settled he will succeed himself. Mr.
Sherman does not waste much of the time of the
Houso In speech-making, but he is a worker,
nevertheless, and does not allow the Interests of
his constituents to suffer in the Departments.
Very few people will be Inclined to believe
Hint a member of Congress over works so hard
ns to itupnlr his health, but such is undoubtedly
tho fact iu the caso of Representative Frank
Lawlcr, of Chicngo. He has been trying nil this
session to nuswer every letter he got, and has
brought on n tit of nervous prostrotlon in conse
quence. He has gone to Atlantic City to recu
perate. Mr. "Brady" French, writing from Lendville,
Col., remarks "thnt among local attractions
snow storms In Juno arc decidedly unique, and
that they acknowledge no competitors."

Cnnitol Laborers Say They Cannot Live as
Itocomos Americans on this Amount.
People who listen to the debates in either
House of Congress know how frequently some
strong-lunged patriot raises his voice in horror
struck reference to the pauper labor of Europe,
and protests against anything and everything
which even inthc remotest degree may be sus
pected of having a tendency to reduce Amer
ican workmen to the same deplorable condi
tion. No one, of course, would dream that
within the sound of these humanitarian voices
about the beautiful grounds of tho Capitol
American workmen were at that very instant
digging, and raking, and mowing, and scraping
for the miserable pittance of G2i cents
a day. Yet such is the fact.
These laborers about the Capitol
grounds are nominally employed at the rate of
yl.25 a day, but as they are allowed to work
but half the time their wages really amount to
but half that sum. Not only is this the case,
but it is permitted to go on, despite the fact
that in 180S Congress passed a law that no em
ploye of the Government shall be paid less than
S2 a day. Tho workmen declare they cannot
live on sixty-two and a half cents a day, cer
tainly not up to tun liigh standard of American
living which is fixed by the speeches which
they have been floating throush the open win
dows and doors of the Capitol so frequently
when the pauper labor of Europe is under dis
cussion. So they are agitating, and have been
agitating for some time, for steady work all
day long at the price fixed by the law of 1P6S.

The Naval Display.
It having been found impossible to have tho
Peusacola ready in time for participation in
tho naval display at Portlaud, Me., July 2, or
ders have been Issued for the Essex, now at
New York, to join the Noith Atlantic Squadron
temporarily for that occasion. The lleet will
then consist of 6lx vessels the Baltimore, Dol
phin, Petrel, Kearsarge, Galena, and Essex.
Two or more of these vessels will assist at the
6pced trial of the new cruiser Philadelphia, near
Block Island, within tho next two weeks. Tho
importance of this trial lies In the fact that the
builders of this vessel will receive a premium of
$50,000 for each quarter of a knot of speed
mado in excess of 19 knots per hour, and will
ho subject to a liko penalty for each quarter
knot below that rate.
Americans in Alaska.
Beportiug to the House, yesterday, a sub
stitute for tho Senate bill providing for the ac
quisition of land for town-sites aud commercial
purposes in Alaska, the Houso Committee on
Public Lauds refers to tho fact that during the
twenty-two years Alaska has been in tho pos
session of the United States there has been,
with the exception of the extension of tho min
ing laws, absolutely no legislation tending to
encourage its development, or afford protec
tion for the investment of their capital and
labor to tho several thousand Americans there.

THE HOT WKA.T1IKK.
"What You Must Unt and What You Musn't
Drink if You Want to Krmiiin In Good
Condition How to Get Sloop on Hot
"If you want to keep niodciatcly cool and
comfortable these hot days," said a physician
to a IIeuald representative, "and avoid dis
comfort aud the danger of sun-stroke, you will
have to do more than put on a llannel shirt and
a light coat. I don't mean that you will have
to dose yourself with medicine, or any thing of
that sort, cither. Tho great aim of people in
summer should be to live regularly in every
way. There Is much greater need In this cli
mate of caro as to eating and drinking in sum
mer than at other periods of tho year.
"As far as summer clothing is concerned, the
average man knows what makes him feel most
comfortable in the way of underclothing, and
will wear it, without regard to what tho doctors
say. But people who arc predisposed to throat
and lung disease, or who have weak kidneys,
are even more apt to catch cold In-summcr than
in winter. They get overheated readily, per
spire freely, and then tho first thing they know
a cool wind comes along, against which tholr
thin clothing ailords no protection, thoy are
chilled in an instant, and the cold settles
in the weakest spot. This sudden checking of
perspiration is especially dangerous to people
who have kidney trouble, or whose kid
neys arc weak. It was a chill of this
kind that caused the very sudden
death of Dr. Bcall here a couple of
summers ago. The pores of his skin were
closed by the chill, and instantly an amount of
work beyond its powers to discharge was thrown
on the kidneys. Severe congestion followed,
the urea was not eliminated from the blood,
uremic convulsions followed, and although Dr.
Beall was seized In Providence Hospital, with
several other physicians around him, nothintr
could be done for him. aud he died In a few
"What would you recommend, doctor, to
avert dangers of this kind?"
"The first thing, of course, is to avoid
draughts. This Is particularly difficult to do
in summer, when all windows and doors are
opened. Tho next thing Is to wear under
clothing of a kind that will not permit too
rapid cooling off. Tho best kind for this pur
pose is sheep's wool or the light weight of
what is called camel's hair, which is a mixture
of wool and the spun hair of the camel. This
material absorbs a large quantity of mois
ture, taking the perspiration up from tho skin
and keeping the pores of tho latter free and in
healthy action. It Is hardly necessary to say
that regular daily bathing and rubbing with
rough towels is particularly beneficial In hot
"How nbout drinking, doctor 'i " asked the
"While I believe in the moderate use of
whisky, wine, and beer," the doctor answered,
"I must say that the less we drink of them
in hot weather the better we aro able to keep
ourselves in good health and comfort. The
worst effect of tho use of these stimulants in
hot weather is their effect on the appetite.
Most people aro not inclined to cat much in hot
weather any way, and the eflect of drinking is
to destroy the inclination altogether. This is
dangerous, for while we do not need as much
food to keep going in summer as wo do iu cold
weather, we must eat a moderate quantity of
the right kind, or the strength quickly leaves
us and we arc prostrated. Alcohol, you know,
does not undergo the slow process of digestion
of foods before it is taken into the blood. Al
most immediately on entering tho stomach it
passes into the circulation, giving a temporary
bracing efTect to the system, and at tho same
time deadening the craving for substantial
nourishment. This, as It were, throws the
stomach out of work and deranges Its func
tions. Smoking has a very similar effect, and
to a greater extent in hot weather, I think,
than in cool. Of course, alcoholic drinks
when first takeu produce heat, and this In
creases the discomfort."
"And now as to eating?"
'Foods that contain a good deal of carbon
should be avoided iu summer. These arc fatty
and oily substances and vegetables that contain
much starch, such as potatoes, peas, beans, rice,
etc. Corn is also heating. A good deal of heat
Is generated in digesting these foods, and as
there is plenty of heat outside, we do not need
to get up any internally to maintain the health
ful temperature of the body.
"On very warm nights," the doctor con
tinued, "1 find it a first-rate thing to take a
shower bath before retiring. This has a sooth
ing efTect ou the nerves; and when I get out of
the hath, without drying myself, I wrap my big
bath robe, made out of Turkish toweling, about
me ami lie down on my bed. The bath robe
absorbs the dampness from tho body, aud iu a
few minutes I usually fall into a refreshing
sleep, even in the most oppressively hot nights.
If I wake up during tho night 1 have my night
shirt handy, and exchange it for the bath robe.
In this way, with proper dressing, regular bath
ing, by avoiding the use of stimulants, and by
eating only small quantities of lean meat aud
vegetables tliat do not contain mucli starcli, a
man can keep himself in good health and com
fort even in the hottest weather."
Christian Endeavor Convent ion.
St. Louis, June 14. Over three thousand
persous were present at the 0-o'clock prayer
meeting of the Young People's Christian En
deavor Convention this morning, aud it was a
very fervid and enthusiastic affair. It took
rather the form of a public confession meeting,
and scores, almost hundreds, of tho young peo
ple vied with each other for an opportunity to
say a few words aud give brief personal experi
ences. The regular session of tho convention
opened at tho usual tinio, and, after singing
ocnpiurai rcauing, unci atiuresses wero
made. Dr. J. W. Ford, of tho Second Baptist
Church, spoke on growing strong as Christians.
Rev. M. L. Haines, of Indianapolis, followed
on another branch of tho same subject, and
Rev. T. S. Hamlin, of Washington, D. C, also
spoke on the same theme. What Is called tho

HrJLUNA, Most., Juno 14. Governor Toole
is in daily communication with his staff officers
sent to investigate the alleged hostile acts or
threats of tho Cheyenne Indians. Up to to-day
no advices have come to the Governor from his
representatives leading him to apprehend any
serious trouble. If the distant settlers have
been worked into a scare, the Cheyennes have
bv the movement of troops had a worse fright.
Nfo Indians have taken tho war-path, and no
lives have been sacrificed. Cattle have been
killed, and that is all. Ono of Custer County's
largest stock-growers, Capt. Harmon, says:
"There is nothing of danger in tho situation."
The general opinion is that if kept upon their
reservation and properly rationed, Cheyennes
will remain wholly peaceable and give no more

The Capital City Bicycle Club held an im

on Fifteenth street. The club is anxious to
secure athletic grounds and to that end a com
mlttco has been at work for some time. They
have an option on a ten-acre field beyond Hoss
lyn at the Virginia end of the Long Bridgo,
but this site does not suit many members. It
being understood that tho Potomac Athletic
Club was anxious to havo the Capital Bicycle
Club amalgamato with them and share their
