Is nothing safe from tho ruthless mailed
hand of Matthew Stanley Quat? During
the past week it Is understood to havo adminis
tered such a severe blow to Senatorial Dignity
as embodied in Mr. Edmunds, of Vermont,
that a six da' leave of absence will be
required to restore its tone.
The President is presumably looking around
these days for a good District Democrat to
take the place which Commissioner Hike de
sires to relinquish. The Hekald is anxious to
aid Mr. Harrison' in his search, and therefore
presents this morning for his inspection the
portraits of several gentlemen who possess all
the requirements necessary to make a good
Commissioner. He will make uo mistake if he
selects one of them.
The Count of Paris, notwithstanding that he
continues to hide his family name beneath the
effete titular tinsel of a system which his coun
try has outgrown and repudiated, seems to be
a pretty good Democrat. He considers the
McKinlet bill such a monstrosity that he has
changed his plans and will not visit the country
in which the bill originated. This is perhaps
justifiable, b-it a little selfish. The Count ought
to come over and help us bear our burden and
strive to alleviate our misery.
By the retirement of Mr. Dorset Clagett
from the office of Register of Wills the people
of the District will lose a capable, honorable,
and obliging official, who has discharged his
important duties to the general satisfaction dur
ing the four years and over since his appoint
ment! Mr. Clagett won the good will of all
who had business with his office during his in
cumbency, and his retirement will be regretted
by people of all parties. Col. Levi P. Wright,
whom the President has nominated to succeed
Mr. Ci.aoett, is a citizen who Is well known
and respected, and his selection gives genuine
satisfaction on all sides.
The developments of tho strike on the Van
DBitniLT roads the past week recalled in a
shocking manner the continued existence of
that anomalpus and dangerous institution, the
Pinkeuton Rifle Corps. Tho aid of these degen
erate successors to the old border vigilantes was
Invoked by the Hon. Cn.vuxcvY M. Depew's
assistants in tho management of tho Vajtdku
uiir roads, who thus publicly impugned the
power of the government of the Empire State
to properly discharge its functions of maintain
ing order and protecting life and property.
This action was n direct Insult to tho Governor
of the State and a slur on tho people of the en
tire Commonwealth. The spectacle of trains
guurded with armed men, many of them not
citizens of the State nt all, rumbling through
tho streets of tho cities, was well calculated to
stir tho indignation of every municipal officer
who was animated by a proper sense of his own
3utles and responsibilities. If tho property of
tho railroad company was in danger It was tho
sworn duty of the State and city authorities to
protect It at all hazards. Tho appearance of
tho Pinkeuton Rifle Corps was almost, In ef
fect, a proclamation of anarchy, and if thoso
who were responsible for It, directly or indi
rectly, escape legal punishment, public opinion,
unless it is inert and debauched, will treasure
it up against them and make its indlgnatiou
felt in its own way aud in Its own good time.
The Hon. Chauncey M. Dei'I'.w, It Is said, ex
pects shortly to go before tho Legislature at
Albany as a caudidate for tho United States
Senate. When he does, if there is any manhood
or American bplrit left on tho banks of tho Hud
son, ho ought to bo given an opportunity to ex
ercise that eloquence which has charmed 60
many festive gatherings in explaining tho shoot
lug down of his innocent fellow-citizens by
riflemen in his employ. The further existence
of such an organization as thlb of the Pjnki'.u
tons should bo made impossible. In the United
States. Tho very name of Pjnkeiiton has be
come odious, and tho appearaueo of Pinkeuton
men in labor troubles Invariably serves to stir
up the worst passions of strikers and increase
tho danger of outbreaks. A bill dealing with tho
Pinkeuton unomaly was Introduced in Con
gress some years ago, hut nothing seems to
havo beon done with it. Now is a good time to
Blunt old Commodore Vasdeiuhi.t used to
say that one of his sons-in-law, Elmott F.
Shepaui), could bo moro kinds of a blankod
fool than any other manho over know. It be
gins to look as If another Vandemui.t son-in-law,
Third Yico President Wnun, of tho New
York Central Railroad, possessed tho same
capacity for making n many-sided ass of uim
solf. By his idiotic obstinacy in refusing to ar
bitrate with the strikers on tho road he threatens
to throw tho traffic of tho groat system and all
tho allied roads into hopeless confusion and in
flict Incalculable loss on tho busluess com
munity. Mr. DiU'EW can't give up his pleasant
dalliance with tho aristocrats of Europe and
get home any too quick. Some ono who does
'givo a tl n for tho public" is badly needed in
this juncture of tho Now York Central's affairs.

If the reports of the operations of Canadian
poachers in Behring Sea 'are true there soon

It's almost as good as a a vacation on a farm

Benellls of Sea Bathing.
Kiom tho Medical Classics,
Sea bathing is tho best kind of a tonic for
thoso troubled with Indigestion. The corpu
lent will find in the surf bath a valuablo aid in
tho reduction of superfluous fat. There is posi
tive injury in bathing Immediately after eating,
and only tho strong should vouturo into tho
surf before breakfabt. Three hours after eating
Is tho right tlmo for a bath, which should never
exceed thirty minutes duration.
Pension Commissioner Raum must bo a vory
bad man Indeed, and in addition to that a vory
stupid one, if nny of his wrong-doings aro
going to bo discovered by tho investigation of
tho special Houso committeo composed of
Messrs. Morrill, Sawyer, Smysor, Goodnight,
and Lewis. It is simply tho caso ot producing
numerous witnesses to testify that thoy did not
sco the defendant 6tcal tho pig. Tho investi
gation Is a fared. Tho Republican members of
tho committee don't want to find tho Commis
sioner guilty, and If tho two Democratic mem
bers havo any dcslro to find him guilty thoy
don't know how. Representative Cooper, of
Indiana, asked for tho appointment of tho In
vestigating committee, and by all tho rules that
havo ever followed the make-up of such com
mittees, he ought to have been, If not tho chair
man, at least a member of It. Ho would have
known how to search for Raum's eullt, it
tho gentloman Is guilty. But that
was what Raum did not want, and that was
what Tom Reed didn't want. Tho committeo
was appointed not to Investigate, but to covor
up. Representative Cooper was left out In the
cold, and slnco tho first sitting of tho committeo
ho has been shown In tho coiumlttee-room no
moro consideration than might havo been de
manded and expected by any ordinary Interloper.
If the two Democratic members of tho commit
teo were men ot any force they might mako a
kick, but thoy aro too weak to kick. It Is safo
to say they never served on any sort of an Inves
tigating committeo before. Taking all tho cir
cumstances into account, wo-may ask, "What's
tho matter with Raum?" and answer, "He's all
right." And Capt. Geo. E. Lemon's cases will
still receive the most distinguished consideration
of the Pension Office, however other people's
claims may bo neglected.
Senator Ingalls Is not more distinguished for
forging fine phrases than he is for tho closest
observance of the proprieties in all public
pla'ces, and especially on occasions of ceremony.
Ho would bo a dull observer who could have
failed to notice tho striking contrast in this re
spect presented in tho Senato Chamber yester
day between Senator Ingalls and Senator Black
burn. Tho former was never very closely asso
ciated with tho lato Senator Beck, whoso mem
oiy the Senato had met to honor, while the lat
ter was his personal friend, colleague, and side
partner for years in both Houses of Congress.
The Senator from Kentucky was master of yes
terday's ceremonies, whllo tho Senator from
Kansas was to take only an ordinary speaking
part in them. Yet Ingalls's whole manner and
exterior expressed at every point gravity, rp
spect, reverence, and nil those qualities and
feelings which properly belong to a memorial
service over tho dead, while Blackburn
looked jaunty and gay, for all the world as if
he wero just about to start for tho races. That
Blackburn delivered a fine speech, full of elo
quence and feeling, thero is no question, but bo
was working at a great disadvantage. His
manner and appearance prepared tho spectator
to hear him discuss, not the good qualities of
the dead Senator and the solemn problem of
the soul's immortality, but rather some light
and festive topic, such as "our next merry
meeting." As they listened yesterday to tho beautiful
discourse delivered by Senator Ingalls on tho
lato Senator Beck the occupants of the gallery
could not help thinking of the strange relations
between such a Senator and'tho Kansas con
stituency which he serves. That such a man
must bow to the whims and caprices, submit to
the censures, tho abuse, and the badgering of
a pack of yokels howling in a wilderness, an
swer their foolish questionings, pocket their in
sults, make sacrifices to their political power,
obey enemas tho servant obeys his master,ortho
slave his owner, and do his best to shape his
words and conform his actions to their Impos
sible standard is one of the most grotesque
phenomena of American politics. That the
position and the fame of a man like Ingalls de
pend upon the favor of a lot of unreasoning
and unreasonable Yahoos in Kansas shows how
far this Government Is from being an aristoc
racy, and how thoroughly tho reins of power
aro in tho hands of tho rabble. There is very
little chance in this country for a man to usurp
powers that have not been delegated to him.
In tho public life of tho United States thero is
no place for Ciesar. When it is possible to
suppose, as it was generally supposed yester
day, that Senator Ingalls was impelled "to tho
delivery of that beautiful eulogv on Beck out of
political considerations, and that ho had to uso
certain words and certain ideas, and suppress
other words and Ideas, for tho ono purpose
of framing a speech that might serve him
in his campaign in Kansas things havo come to
a pretty pass. Deploring tho subjection of a
great mind to paltry restraints Oliver Goldsmith
once said of Edmund Burke
" Born for tho universe,
Narrowed his mind,
And to party gavo up
What was made for mankind."
But it is not only to party that tho greatest
mind in American politics has to yield. It must
submit to the rabble, tho noisy, clamorous,
thoughtless rabble. It Is not independent of
tho humblest citizen who ever lived by wielding
a pickaxe or tried to get rich by betting on pol
icy. Those who aro despised and Ignored by
tho rest of mankind aro feared and mu6t bo
humored by tho greatest among politicians.
Who would bo a politician ?
Our distinguished townsman, Judge W. G.
Riley, has been confirmed by tho Senato in tho
position of United States Consul at Puerto Ca
bello, Venezuela, to which ho was nominated
by President Harrison. Although the Jedgo
halls from Accomac, Va., as everybody knows
who ever stood two minutes within shooting
distance of him, wo may call him our distin
guished townsman, becauso In this town he has
spent a largo part ot tho most ornamental por
tion of his very ornamental life, It was hero
In Washington that ho rose to tho distinction
which he has attained, If ho had remained at
homo in his native Accomac, of which ho Is so
justly and vociferously proud, ho would never
havo como to bo known from ono end of tho laud
to tho other as tho first . of tho jedges;
and nobody who knows anything will question
tho statement that of all tho jedges Jedgo
Riley is number ono, and a jedgo is so far supe
rior to a major that thero Is no comparison be
tween tho two. With tho Jedge as our Consul
at Puerto Cabello, and the Hon. William L.
Scruggs as our Minister at Caracas, thero ought
to bo no flies on our representation In Venezuela.
A number of the Jedge's most ardent admirers
havo started a movement for tho purpose of
giving him before bo leaves town a banquet
such as has seldom been known.ln Washington,
a banquet at which everybody will bo present,
and at which proper expression will be- given to
tho city's thanks forthu honor which tho Judge
has reflected on It.
Tho worst cartoon that bus been printed in
any of tho leading pictorial newspapers in many
a day was ono by an artist named Victor, printed
recently in Juihje. Tho subject was dissensions
among the Republican leaders, Whether that
subject could bo successfully treated In a Re
publican plcturo paper is a question. But Vic
tor's treatment of It was worse than a wasted
effort. Tho job was a complete spoil. As our
haudsomo uud virllo aud moro or less artistic
friend E. W. Llghtner remarked when ho saw
the picture, "To tho Victor belong tho spoils."
Senator Edmunds is growing quite boisterous.
Ho does not tako his plcasuro half so gravely
now as ho used to do. Formerly ho sat in tho
Senato Chambor like a pilgrim at worship or a
saint nt prayer, but now ho carries on llko a
mischievous boy nt school a thoroughpaced
disturber of tho peace. Tho other day whllo
Senator Hawlcy was speaking, only a couple of
desks away the reverend Senator from Vermont
was engaged In nn animated conversation with
his neighbor, Senator Piatt. Tho Sonntor from
Vermont was doing nil tho talking, and ho was
talking quite loud. It was evidently a good
story, too, for both Senators wero laughing.
Altogether Senator Edmunds was creating a
great uolso and making n great show of inatten
tion. So much so that Senator Hawloy had to
halt in his speech nnd ask the venerable Senator
from Vermont, in a stngo whisper, for goodness
sako to lot up. Tho Senator from Vermont did
not hear tho remonstrance. Ho continued the
story and ho and Piatt continued the laugh until
Senntor Hoar reinforced Hawloy's nppeal for
order. As soon as Mr. Edmunds realized tho
situation ho looked very much as tho clown In
tho pantomime looks when the policeman
catches him In tho net of stealing, llo took a
hurried look all around, and then burying his
head In his hands ho ducked his head below his
desk and continued tho laugh where ho thought
ho couldn't bo seen. As soon as ho could re
cover his gravity ho sat up again in his chair,
but it was quite evident' that ho felt very guilty
and very bad.
Tho remains of Gcu. Grant will soon bo in
Arlington, where thoy ought to bo. Thoso
Now Yorkers havo no reverence for tho great
soldier's tomb. Thoy didn't caro about his
bones, except in so far as thoy might help thorn hi
business speculations. Thoy don't think enough
of his memory to subscribe for a monument to
it. Thoy aro an Irreverent community a city
Of shopkeepers and hoodlums. New York City
is no lit resting place for tho bones of Gen.
Grant. Before long It will bo recognized be
yond dispute thnt hero in Washington, under
tho shadow 'Of tho Capitol thero should bo a

cans should bo burled.
Somo prominent MIestsslppiaus say that tho
reason why tho Houso of Representative failed
to give Col. Kernaghan tho seat for which ho
contested with Gcu. Hooker is that the Repub
lican party managers don't really want to givo
cither place or power to whlto Republicans of
tho State. For some reason the Republican
party managers hold that tho State cannot be
made Republican except under colored leader
ship, nnd it is the control of tho State they aro
looking for moro than an additional member
in tho Houso of Representatives. That is tho
reason, they say, why Mr. Bruce, tho Recorder of
Deeds for the District of Columbia, and Mr.
Lynch, the Fourth Auditor of the Treasury, aro
permitted to dictate the distribution of Federal
patronage in the State of Mississippi, as they
aro credited with doing. It is a remarkable
fact that Bruce, who was appointed as a resi
dent of the District of Columbia to a District
offico which pays him from $12,000 to $10,000 a
year should as a colored Republican leader of
the State of Mississippi bo consulted as to tho
Federal appointments to bejmado In that State.
There Is something wrong.
"Tho Reports of tho Consuls of tho United
States," that distinguished periodical which is
published by tho State Department, is a peculiar
publication and sometimes quite amusing. Its
correspondents aro tho consuls of the United
States. Some of these correspondents are very
voluminous and -write long despatches on the
smallest provocation. Others seem to bo rather
lazy and write only in response to specific as
signments sent out from tho State Department,
not caring a fig whether they get "scooped" or
not. Consul James Fletcher, the able corre
spondent stationed at Genoa. Italy, seems to be
of an industrious disposition, but to find news
very scarce in his bailiwick. Here Is an extract
from a despatch of his which was printed in the
last number of our esteemed contemporary:
Only ono houso in Genoa. G. Centunni & Co.,
deals directly with packers and shippers of pilch
ards in England. On his return on tho 4th instant
to this city, after several days' absence, the head
of tho llrm named kindly gavo mo three items, to
wit: English pilchards aro delivered at this port,
solidly packed in small barrels or casks, nnd pre
served in salt and tho brino thereof; each cask or
barrel contnins 200 pounds net weight or fish; tho
government duty is 0 lire per 100 kilograms, or 5
liro per cask.
Now, a correspondent who is so evidently
thankful for a pleco of news of that quality
mu6t bo gleaning in a very barren field. '
M. Roehon was once Mrs. Cleveland's hair
dresser. At that time M. Roehon was keeping
a high-toned wig emporium and hair-dressing
establishment on Fifteenth street. All his con
nections wero supposed to be pure and proper
enough for tho approval of even Postmaster
General Wanamaker. But ono day in 1887
President Cleveland received a communication
from a Indy In Lyons, France, iu which sho
claimed M. Roehon as her husband, whereas he
had been understood in Washington to bo some
body eko's husband. At that moment Mr.
Cleveland registered a vow that M. Roehon
should not dally with Mrs. Cleveland's tresses
any more, even in a professional way. Mr.
Clovelaud exercised a pretty comprehensive
control over his own household, which may to
somo oxtent account for tho fact that Mrs.
Cleveland never fell Into the error first of dis
cussing real estato deals with newspaper Inter
viewers and thon of accepting gifts of real
estato In violation of Iter own precept. In
Mr. Cleveland's Presidential career thero Is a
good deal that Mr. Harrison would do well to
avoid and somo things that ho would do well
"What must I do?" said young John Jere
miah Lamb to tho O'SIIgo In tho play of "New
"Oh, tip her tho blarney, meo boy," said tho
What Lamb was anxious about was how to
mako love to a young lady who was just dying
to bo courted a llttlo. Lamb had great confi
dence iu tho O'SIIgo, and, of course, took his
advlco. When ho met tho young lady again ho
lost no time in carrying out tho instructions.
"Madamo," said he, "I want to permit mo,
if you please oh, what I want to say Is allow
mo, madamo, to Up you tho blarnoy."
I was reminded of this incident tho other day
when a lady, a very hanilsomo lady, camo to
Washington to do something for tho public
good, to influence Congress In somo way, to in
duce or compel Congress to pass bills of somo
kind; tho Anti-lottery bill especially she
wanted passed, for sho thought tho passage of
that bill would do a great deal of good. She
knew in a vague way what her object was, but
6ho knew nothing about how to accomplish it.
Sho didn't know what her work was to bo. Sho
thought iu a general way, however, that sho
wauted to lobby, and said 60. Just how 6ho
got along at it 1 don't know, but from what I
saw of her and hoaid her say, J fancy sho must
havo gone up to tho Capitol and, button-hollug
every man sho met, whether Senator, Represen
tative), doorkeeper, messenger, guide, or visitor,
said to him, "If you please, I want to lobby a
little." David Lewsley.

A very popular fallacy Is that profuso perspi

to this supposition is n rofcrencoto tho men en

to all whoso dally labor is of tho severest bodily
