The Philadelphia Inquirer spent last week in

Delama'tek into ignominious oblivion, but,

Perhaps it will not be accepted as a mark of
generous appreciation on the part of the Demo
cratic press of the country that It fluds in Maj.
McKinley and Senator Carlisle the most
efficient workers for tariff refoim which the
nation possesses. They do not work In the
same way, but unconsciously McKinley helps
Carlisle by furnishing the awful example.
The school question played an Important part
in the Illinois elections, aud the campaign poet
sung the song of the "Little Red School-House,"
only to find that not more than two out of 132
Illinois school-houses are painted red. The
Philadelphia North American, however, comes
to his relief by saying it doesn't matter, for, all
the same, his poem was read.
Stanley's charges against Maj. Rarttelot
have been further confirmed by Mr. William
Bonnv, one of the officers of the rear column.
The account which he gives of Rarttei.ot's
revolting cruelty and the diabolical spirit and
malignant Insensibility of Jameson will make
most people doubt whether a contlnuaneo of
African barbarism is not preferable to the intro
duction of civilization by such fiendish methods.
Stanley wns right in suppressing all ho could
of the horrible particulars. Tho terrible story
should never have been told.
It is generally believed In business circles
that the late Hurry In Wall street will have the
effect of placing things on usurer foundation
for the future. There was need to cut away
some dead wood, and It was removed accord
ingly. Some bubbles had to bo pricked, and
there were some consequent collapses. Rut
general business Is In a healthy condition, with
every prospect of remaining so. Tho alleged
"revolution" in railway matters, if It material
izes, will, It is thought, prove generally satis
factory to tho main railroad interests of the
country. There has been much dissatisfaction
among railroad men, and many railroad proper
ties have been unremuncratlve. Tho new deal
gives promise of an arrangement whereby
hereafter'traflic may be put on u paying basis.
J-ast Thursday was the fifty-seventh birthday
of Eowin Booth, the greatest of American
tragedians. It was regarded by the friends of
his early life in Baltimore us a fortunate and
Interesting circumstance that it occurred
during his visit to his native State and while ho
was nmld the scenes of his boyhood. All day
lone congratulatory telegrams and letters
poured In upon him from all parts of the coun
try nnd from all classes of persons. Tho people
of Raltlmoro were anxious to show their ap
preciation by presenting to the great actor somo
testimonial of their esteem. Rut, ns Is well
known, Mr. Booth's extreme reserve makes
him averse to becoming a part of a public sccno
of any kind. Singular as It must seem In one
whoso whole active life lias been spent upon
the stage beforo tho public, it Is nevertheless
true that his modesty and shyness are almost
morbid. As Mr. Barrett has said of htm, it Is
only when he assumes a part that ho loses his
self-consciousness and timidity. When, there
fore, the testimonial project was hinted at he
protested earnestly against It and his friends
had to abandou It. Fearing somu demonstra
tion he remained at his hotel, seeing no one.
There was, however, all day long a steady
stream of callers leaving messages nnd llowers,
nnd at the theatre nt night tho most brilliant
audience of the season gnvo htm a groat oration.
It was a tribute to tho gcnlusof Edwin Booth,
but It was also a manifestation of affection and
regard for him ns an actor who has done moro
than any other to refine and derate American
stage art and to raise to n high plauo the repute
and character of his profession.
It Is good news for the world that the Damon
and Pythias of comic opera, Gii.uert and
Sullivan, arc again collaborating. The Sun
day Herald wishes for both of them a long
aud fruitful enreer and fresh fountains of In
spiration. Buvkai.0 Rill's Indians are all right. Maj.
Burke, who is taking them to the reservation,
produced them yesterday before Assistant In
dian Commissioner Bell, and on beiug pri
vately examined they declared they hud been
well treated and desired to stay with the show.
Every possible effort is being put forth by tho
friends of Senator Ingalls to secure enough
Alliance votes to reelect him, aud If ho comes
back to the Senate It is believed that ho will be
more convinced thau ever that purity in politics
is "an irridescent dream."
Sam Jones, to whose name "Rev." Is some
times prefixed, is quoted as saying that the let
ters "D. D." after a clergyman's name stand
for "Devils's Dude." Mr. Jones has a habit of
speaking very familiarly of personages with
whom It is charitable to suppose he is not in
Ex-Governor Alger, of Michigan, is one of
the men who are not saying much these days.
He has been nursing a Presidential boomlet and
fostering it with all the care which a dilllgcnt
discharge of the duties of his high Grand Army
office enabled him to bestow. But there re
cently came "a frost a killing frost and
nipped its root." Michigan went Democratic
by over ten thousand.
Sir Walter Scott's journals, just as he
wrote them, were published In London last
week, and will soon be here in an American
dress. All that the world uow knows of them
Is through the extracts, alterations, emenda
tions, aud omlsslous of the priggish and some
what snobbish Lockhart, who seems to have
feared that his great father-in-law would suffer
in esteem if he were known too close!. Those
who have read them say that they will" cause
him to be held In higher estimation thau ever.
The apparent disposition of the Post Office
authorities to make a drag-net of the anti-lottery
law,so as to include within its prohibitions
such enterprises as church fair rallies and news
paper guessing contests receives no encourage
ment from the Attorney General. In a recent
opinion that official said tho law was framed
"with a view to the suppression of certain well
known and widespread agencies for evil, and
it is certainly not wise to embarrass its execu
tion by a strained or unnatural construction In
reaching after practices not thought of as a mo
tive for Its enactment."
Among those prominently named as candi
dates for the Speakership of the Fifty-second
Congress are Mills, of Texas; Cmsi, of
Georgia; IlATCii.of Missouri; Bv.u.M,of Indiana,
and Si-ringer, of Illinois. In this connection ttm
Springfield Jlcpublican suggests Congressman
Wilson, of West Virginia, and says: "Tho
Northern Democrats will have a large repre
sentation and may bo loth to place a distinc
tively Southern man In the chair. In a geo
graphical sense Mr. Wilson would afford an
ideal compromise. His abilities are not ques
tioned, and in him the Democrats would have
a Speaker who would bo a credit to that great
office quite as much as any other one men
tioned." Tho action of the Secretary of tho Interior in
ordering a rigid investigation of the treatment
received by Indians In "Wild West" shows
throughout Europe will win general and hearty
approval. The vulgar speculators who borrowed
them from the Government for purposes of ex
hibition are alleged to have abused and de
frauded them shamefully. It was not a very
creditable act in the Government to lend them
in the first place, and for the future tho practice
will be discontinued. At best, tho country
gains Httlo advantage from these performances.
In Europe an Ignorant conception prevails that
our population Is largely made up of Indians,
cowboys, and other' rough and semi-barbarous
elements, and tho "Wild West" shows serve to
confirm the Impression.
The Secretary of State is tho only man In tho
Republican party who can look back to the
disastrous results of tho campaign and say, "I
told you so." To tho Western Republican
press, therefore, his figure alone towers ubovo
the wre':k. Tho St. Paul Pioneer Press says:
"Tho country has reached ono of those great
historic crises when Jt feels Instinctively the
need of a great leader and turns as instinctively
to James G. Blaine us the leader whom It
needs. He Is tho only man who can lead the
Republican party to victory In 1602. Tho magic
of his name will call back its llylug legions to
the glorious standard, etc." It Is noteworthy,
however, that that rock-ilbbed Protectionist
paper, tho Pittsburg Commercial-Gazette, dryly
remarks: "Tho duty and tho honor of leading
the party to victory in tho next great battle
will devolve on somo ouo else than Mr,
The purpose for which tho Constitution directs
that there shall bo a count of the people of the
country every ten years Is to secure an equnl
representation of Its different sections in tho
Houso of Representatives on tho basts of popu
lation. However unsatisfactory nnd untrust
worthy, therefore, the new census may be, It
furnishes, nfter all, tho only ofilclal figures wo
hnvo of tho present population of the United
States, and unless Congress orders a now count
It Is upon theso figures that tho new apportion
ment of representatives will be mntlc.
Tho duty of Congress In regard to representa
tion In the House consists In fixing tho basis ol
such representation. It Is Incumbent on It to
determine tho number of people necessary to
constitute a district, or rather tho number ap
portioned to ono representative, for a State may
bo so districted that to give It tho representation
to which It Is on tied somo of Its Congressmen
may have to bo elected nt largo.
After tho ratio of population has been decided
upon, the uniform practlcchasbccu to leave tho
rcdlstrlctiug to the States. Tho abuse of this
power has had for Its result the system of unjust
and corrupt "gerrymandering" to which several
of tho States have been repeatedly subjected by
one party or the other. But no amount of "ger
rymandering" or any other expedient will nvnll
to change or obviate the basis of representation,
nnd therefore the fixing of that basis for tho
term of ten years is a matter of the most serious
At first thought It might seem thnt any num
ber nirreed on would affect all the States equally
and Impartially, since their representation Is to
be ascertained through dividing their several
populations by the same ratio. But no divisor
cnu possibly bo found that will exactly measure
the populations of all tho States. AVhatevcr
basis of apportionment may be adopted there
will be In each State a remainder of population,
as It were, which must go uurcpresentcd. This
Is the point nt which pnrtisan advantage may
be gained. Each party thinks it desirable to
secure such a basis as will Include within tho
States of the opposing party the larger propor
tion and volume of tho unrepresented remain
ders of population which are inevitable. A just
basis would be one which would most nearly
equalize these remainders in all tho States.
This question of reapportionment Is without
doubt the most Important that will occupy tho
time and attention of tho approaching session
of Congress. Either the Dunnell bill or a simi
lar measure will probably pass, though there Is
a natural feeling that tho Republican majority
In the present House, having so utterly lost tho
confidence of the country, can scarcely be
trusted to deal wisely with this momentous
matter. It is very certain that any attempt at
an unfair adjustment will be bitterly and stren
If, as seems likely, 180,000 is adopted as the
basis of reapportionment, the total membership
of the House, allowing au additional member
in those States where tho fractional remainder
is more than half the ratio, will bo 344. Of
these 23S will be from Northern States and 100
from the South. Maine, Virginia, South Caro
lina, Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio will each
lose one Representative, while New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri,
Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, Washing
ton, and Oregon will each gain ono, Minnesota
two, aud Nebraska three. Delaware, North
Dakota, and Montana have each n little less
thau 180,000 inhabitants. Wyoming, Nevada,
and Idaho all together oan hardly make up
that number among them, being In the Union
simply and 6olely for Republican partisan ad
vantage. Yet each must have one Representa
tive and two Senators, making a Congressional
representation of nine members for less than
Beyond question the day will come when the
people of tho United States will make Eerlous
inquiry in regard to the inequalities of repre
sentation which arc involved In our present
methods of government. When that day
comes tho place, purpose, and usefulness of the
Senate in our representative system will bo
fully discussed, and tho result will probably be
the creation of a body which can bo brought
moro readily than at present into accord with
tho popular mind, and which will more equally
and justly reflect tho Influence of tho various
sections of tho country.

D. C, was born in Prince George's County,
Md., August 27, 1810, where his English. pro
genitors, who came over with Lord Baltimore's -colony,
settled. He married about forty-four
years ago Maria Louisa Morgau, daughter of
George and Maria E. Morgan, of Stf Mary's
County, Md. Ills widow and three sons, Wil
liam W., Charles V., and George C, survive
htm, and to them ho has left the heritage of au
unsullied name and a character for integrity and-.
spotless personal honor, which, coupled with
his unswerving fidelity to his church, is their
greatest consolation In this their honor of ailllc
tion. In tho large circle of his friends his death
has left a void that can never be supplied. Tho
cheery voice aud fervid welcome which greeted
so many at his hospitable board are passed aud

., W! tb5 netting of the sun on tho evening of -the
1 13th of November the soul of this gallant
and noble gentleman departed from this world,
lull of years and full of honors, he has gono to
reap tho harvest of his good works, done in this
transitory state of existence. Born iu tho birth
place of secession and bred among people who
proclaimed by word and deed the doctrines of
Stato rights as paramount to all other obliga
tions, no false doctrines allured him from his
duty and no specious theories turned him from
the path of rectitude. A man of intense nature, .
there was no neutral ground for him. between
right and wrong. With the first shot fired upon
Sumpter ho sprang to the front, and there re
mained, battling for tho life of tho nation and"
tho restoration of tho Union, until tho close of
tho Rebellion. In tho various important fields
of action ho was called to occupy ho was con
spicuous for judgment, energy, gallantry, and
" Nono know him but to lovo him.
None named him but to praise. "
History Is full of his achievements and'
brilliant services. Whether at Port Royal with
Dupont, where ho held an Important command;,
with Porter In both attacks upon Fort Fisher,
or In tho operations upon tho Johns River,
where ho commanded upon each and every oc
casion In which ho participated during tho great
Civil War ho was conspicuous for all tho quali
ties which combine to make tho brilliant naval
officer and a successful leader of men. In tho
Mexican War ho made 1111 exccllont record.
Upon tho closo of tho Civil War and until hie
retirement ho was actively engaged in honorable
and responsible positions. While In command
of tho Boston Navy Yard his social qualities and
charming manners, combined with his dis
tinguished services, won for him a host of warm
and enthusiastic friends among tho mest emi
nent of Boston's citizens. Winning honors fort
himself in this command, It was mainly through
him tho Navy has obtained tho good will, affec
tion, and esteem of tho people of this 6cctfou. .
There ho formed tho strongest attachments of--his
lifo, and bus naturally selected Mount'
Auburn for his final resting pjaco, tho most
beautiful of cemoterlcs. and whore so many of
his devoted friends "sleep their last sleep.""
Boston, too, Is tho homo of his two married
daughters. To his ullllcted family his army of
friends tender their heartfelt sympathy and con
dolence. T. II. S., Rear Admiral, U. S. N.
