Mr. Eugene V. Debs, who has been so
lively an Issue during the iast year or two,
has ended the six months In prison to which
he wan sentenced for leading a strike
against impositions of railroad companies,
has Lad a monster reception, at which Gov.
Waite, of Colorado, was present, and at
which "La Marseillaise" was the war cry,
has made a great speech and will now pub

A volume of important history is in
cluded in this brief statement. The strike
of which Debs was a leader was more
Important in results than nny that has
ecr occurred in America. The uprising of
1877 was bloodier, the Homestead affair,
and others more sensational, but the A.
K. U. strike brought forth a decision from
the United States courts, which gives the
law authorities absolute power to rail
road leaders to Jail nl the beginning of ob
struction, and so deprive the strikers of
the counsel upon which they depend. Of
course, this is more likely to provoke de
struction of life and property than to save
them, but law and ilice authorities are
the last to recognize this phase of such
It is to be hoped Mr. Debs will In the
future use his influence to prevent strikes,
which are always more or less disastrous
to employers, employes and the general
public, and devote his genius to political
organization, without which no enduring
good can be accomplished.
In Trance, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Hol
land, Denmark, Sweden, Norway antr-Great
Britain, the ballot, general, provincial and
local, Iia3 accomplished Immeasurable good
In bringing about reforms of benefit to the

Nothing substantial, nothing permanent,

Therefore all such piles should be made
absolutely fireproof, If that be possible.
Yet the fires of this week, which arc near
est to band for illustration, show that the
material of the Interiors was particularly
Inflammable. Hardly was the alarm given
before the many stories were ablaze from
top to bottom, and only by fairly tumbling
down stairs and fire escapes and fire de
partment ladders were any of the hundreds
of inmates saved.
It is a 6 In: pic and logical conclusion that
all structures higher than two or three stor
ies should be made absolutely fireproof.
This should be compulsory, and should be
flone under rigorous law3 and inspection.
In addition to this, the most thorough in
terior machinery should be compelled for
extinguishing fire, especially la buildings
devoted to manufacture and where much
inflammable material Is in use.
The fearful lessons of the last week should
lead every municipality to take prompt
steps for the prevention of the erection
of fire-traps, which are not only a menace
to themselves and their occupants, but the
whole neighborhood which surrounds them.
WAYS AND MEANS.
Many authorities appear to think that
the composition of the Committee on Ways
and Means of the House of Representath cs
is not Important In the Fifty-fourth Con
gress because there will be little tariff leg
This is a strange conclusion. In Iew of
the fact that for a quarter of n century the
problem of levying nnd collecting sufficient
funds to pay expenses of go vcrmuent. Inter
est on debt, and to nuke ecuxibly liberal
appropriations for internal imprmements
nnd public bulldlnra has not presented so
many difficulties as nt the present time.
Therefore, Ways and Means should be or
ganized to concentrate in it not only tin?
best wisdom of the IIour, lint the best ex
ecutive ability nnd leadership.
Iloneu-r the cliairmamhip question may
be decided, the committee will bo a pecu
liarly able one, and the progress of ll work
for the purpose of "raising the wind" will
be watched with deepintercst.

According to Information contained In

tection from foreign competition, intends
to embody in his recommendations to Com

programme that the leaders ot that party

as the prime minister of Great Britain.
Just how the 3 per cent loan will take
the place of protection is difficult to sec,
but his lordship Is certainly wise in keep

muddle, whuh logically means that it one

be interesting to note how the people at
large of the kingdom will receive the
proposition that they shall be taxed to

on this subject.
INCREASE OF COUNTEHFEITING.
The last report of the chief of the
Secret Service of the Treasury Department
would seem to indicate that the business
of counterfeiting is largely Increasing,
both in the reproduction of coin and paper
money. Here is a summary of the work
of the last fiscal yean

capturnl during the year of an aggregate
face value of almost 53,000.000. There
were also captured 935 copper, steel and
glass plates for United States notes, state
warrants, postage stamps. World's Fair
diplomas, etc.: also 4T dies for counterfeit
coins, and 217 molds for colnr, bcsldex
a large quantity of crucibles, photographic
outfits and machinery.
Thisshows that many others besides the
employes of the mints and Bureau of En

"Because," he sald.'-'lu Athens the gov

were uot merely law-makers or law
breakers, as most rulers are but they were
obliged to look after the temporal welfare
ot the people. The slate had to provide
a living for the people to furnish them with
the opportunity of being well fed, well-
clothed and happy. The ruler who failed
to accomplish this end had a short regime.
"Now, where hae we a modern Alliens

QUESTIONS, OF PARTY POLICY.
There are. Indications that the committee

which shuuVbe-firoposed by the Republican

reasons for believing that the steering com

The Republicans seem to bedlvided among

latiou with the Democrats until after the
next national lampalgn. It Is not, ILerc-fw.-so-
much a question of n ambers as of
party expedicue-y that will determine the
inaiier or reorganization.
Whether a majority of Senator wiU

It is known beyond doubt that Senator
Quay is opposed to Senate reorganiAition,
holding that the Republicans should not
attempt it until they are In run coutrol of
It is generally supposed that the chair
man or the Republican caucus deciles in
his own mind who among his fellow Sen
ators arc Republicans, and Invites them
to utteud the caucus. As a matter of fact,
no Invitations are issued.
There is simply a notice sent to the effect
that there will be a meeting or Republican
Senators at a given time and place. This
notice might be sent b a Democrat or to
a newspaper, and In such case the notice
would simply give information. The chair
man of the caucus does suggest a list of
persons to wnom the notice should be sent,
but any Republican Senator may add to
this list, and a notice would be sent to the
person whose name was suggested. For
example, Mr: Chandler might ask to have
a notice sent to Mr. Hutler of North Caro
lina, end the notification would roilow as
a matter or course-. Whether ilr. Hutler
attended or not would be for him to decide.

frequently has been so notified since his

the Congressional Directory both of the-se
Senators have always been designated as
It Is safe to say that both will be rotified
of the meeUng of the caucus. Mr. Peffer
has been so notified occasionally, but Mr.
Butler Is a new Senator. The fact that Mr.
Butler was elected by a combination of Re

to notice being sent lo him, and Mr. Chan
dler wilt probably see to it that Capt. Bas

Another prevalent mistake has arisen
over the Gcman resolution of March 2 con
tinuing the Senate committees until their
successors shall be appointed. This resdul
tion Is now looked upoansa pieceof sharp
practice to keep the Democrats In control.
The fact, is that the resolution follows
the terms of the Allison resolution of 1591,
and the putpose of the Gorman resolution
was to prevent the silver Senators on the
Republican, side from carrying out their
declared plan of blocEicg the formation of

for the Iowa candidate, and the supporters
ot Mr. Allison are saying that nnder cer
tain conditions, iierhnps after all, it would
be best to nominate Mr. Harrison.
A close friend of the ex-President, in
speaking of this new alliance and Its possi
bilities, said: "I am satisfied that the
nianuagers of Harrison and Allison have
reached an understanding, and if at any
time during the coming convention cither
one can be nominated by the aid of the
other, he will be the nominee. It has not
yet been decided upon just what conditions
they will go into the convention. Allison's
friends want Harrison to go. to the front
and figure as an active candidate, but
Harrison's supporters think this would be
"They believe that Allison Is the man
to take the lead, and that Harrison should
be kept in the background, where he will
antagonize no one, and will be In a position
to receive the votes of the friends of all
the other candidates. Senator Allison him
self objects to the altter programme.
"He has never been anything but a dark
horse In his whole political enre-er, and he
has been figuring upon occupj ing a similar
position ut the next national convention.
There are some advantages in being a dark
NEVER WAS A CANDIDATE.
"After the convenUon Is over, nnd if a
dark-horse candidate has not been nom
inated, he can say, with someshow of truth,
tliatheneve-rwasa Candida te.nevcrauthor
ized anyone to present his name, and had no
idea in seeking the nomination. In fact,
if the nomination had come to him at this
time lie could not have accepted It. Allison
objects to coining 'out of t he woods,' but the
narnson contingent will control the situ
ation, so far as lie is concerned. If they
order Allison to the front at the beginning
o r tne contest ne wilt De compelled to obey. '
It is known to be a fact that tn Indiana
there is a strong undercurrent In favor ot
Allison for second choice, and there are
predictions that in tiruo there will be a
movement looking to the support of the Iowa
Senator in case It does not seem possible to
renominate Gen. Harrison. 3
A similar sentiment toward Harrison Is
understood to prevail In Iowa.
Gen. Harrison has been Id New York tor
several days, anil it is believed that bis
chances have been Improved by his visit.
