The Magnitude of tlie Exposition
Richard Harding Davis, in Harper's Weekly.
Chicago at any time, in its most
normal state, it it ever lapses into
such a state, is distinctly a show'
city, and if you pay it your first
visit while it is dedicating World's
Fair buildings and making room
for one million strangers, your
impressions are so many and so
various that it is difficult to know
with which to begin. This is es
pecially so when you must tell
what you saw to the accompani
ment of a type-writer and the rattle
of a limited press.
And yet after it is all over there
is the one thing which found you
unprepared, and the wonder of
which remains with you when
every other impression is slipping
away as fast as the miles which
keep you from New York. And
that is the wonderful beauty and
magnitude of the World's Fair
buildings. Every one who has not
seen the buildings thinks he knows
exactly what they are.like, and
does not want to hear anything
more concerning them. At least
one man thought he knew what
they were like before he saw them,
and certainly dreaded being told
again in bewildering statistics of
their area, height, and cost. But
when I saw them around the
lagoon, in front of the main en
trance, I wanted to be left entirely
alone with them, as one. wants to
be left alone in front of a beautiful
landscape or a great picture.
There is no use of my'trying to say
why this was so, why they are ini
pressive and dignified and beauti
ful, for I remember having read
all this before of them, and of not
considering it at all.
Their magnitude and their
, beauty, not on account of these?
: qualities, butin spite of them, are
not things of which the best writerB
on architecture^--of which I cer
tainly am not one-can give any
idea;'neither can colored prints
L with palm-trees in the foreground
? and blue skies above, nor even
! photographs which "never lie."
You can hardly hope to give an
other person an ideaDf anything
| unless there is something with
. which he is already familiar, and
\ with which you can make com
parison. In this case you can only
compare the World's Fair build
ings with Rome as we belieye it
was in its grandest days, and with
those days we cannot claim to be
. intimate. One of the' Spanish
; legation put it this way : "The
? Chicago buildings," he said, "ure
the buildings we should have seen
in Paris ; those of the Paris ex
hibition are those we might have
expected to find at Chicago." That
is exactly right, and one of the
secondary surprises of this wonder
ful white city is, that the city of
art and the Madeleine and of the
Beaux-Arts should have fallen
down and worshipped an Eiffel
Tower and Eidson electric light
nings, and that the city of grain
elevators and pork should have
. reared a second city; as classic in
its beauty as the Athens of to-day,
and as true in the detail of a cor
nice as it is grand as a whole.
The Next Senate.
A gentleman, talking to the
, Evening News last night, was
. asked the quostion: "Will the
Third party hold the balance of
. power in the United States Senate
; after March 4th, 1893?"
i Said he : "Th?re is certainly a
chance of it, and many who are
i opposed to the new party believe it
; to be not only possible but probable.
? The situation, in a nut shell, is as
j follows: The bold-over members
. and the Senators already elected
i for the term beginning March 4
r next, make the Senate stand 31
. Republicans, 31 Democrats and 2
! People's party, leaving 24 Senator
> to be elected by the Legislatures of
. the following States, Delaware,
? Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Maine,
J Massachusetts, Michigan, Min
l nesota, Missouri, Montana,
t Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey,
i New York, North Dakota, PenusyJ
. vania, Tennessee, Texas, Washing
l ton WestNirginia. Wisconsin, and
- Wyoming. Of these, eight are
9 regarded as reasonably certain for
the Democrats and nine for the
Republicans, leaving seven doubt
ful. The Legislatures of the seven
doubtful States-New York,
* Michigan, Wisconsin, Montana,
Minnesota,Nebraska and Kansas
8 will, it is believed, decide the
' political complexion of the Senate.
? The Democrats claim the first
; (if they get two they will do well),
and the People's party now control
3 the Legislatures of the last three,
3 and claim that it will increase its
majority in the Legislature to be
' chosen next month.
"Allowing these claims to be
3 good, the Senate will stand after
" March 4, 1893: Republicans 40
3 Democrats 43, People's party 5,
I giving the latter the balance of
1 "It is only fair to say that the
r Republicans claim six out of the
seven doubtful Legislatures, and if
the claims are borne out by the
- reBults, the Republicans will
have 46 Senators in the next Con
f gress, against 47 in the present.
"It is just as probable, in fact
more so, that the People's party
will hold the balance of power in
the next House. They now count
upon electing between 35 and 40
e Representatives. If they do; there
e is little doubt of their holding the
2 balance of power in the House,
a "It is seldom that the opportuni
[j ty of deciding the political com
T plexion of the Senate is given to
. the people at the sametime that
t the Presidency and control of the
. House of Representatives is de
3 cided: but the whole business will
;t be included in the coming election.

persist in declaring that there is

The waning circulation of the !
national bank notes, and. the
demonstrated failure of the Sher
man act, are making the currency
problem of importance, but it can
not be settled at the coming elec
tion, for th? voters h ave po ques
tion presented for their deter
mination. A bill for the repeal "of
the ten per cent, tax on State bank
circulation was introduced into
the last Congress, and it has beep
endorsed b.y the Damocratic? plat
form. This endorsement, hb^ev^
means as little, considered-*as the
declaration of a party principle,
as the demand for the repeal of
the Sherman act. On the stump
this has been denounced as a dec
laration in favor of a return to
"wild cat" currency, but this outcry
is absurd; first, because modern
conditions make "wild-cat" cur
rency impossible: and second,
because Congreisman Harter, of
Ohio, the author of the measure, is
ona of the soundest of the sound
money men in public life. Mr.
Harter's plan is to provide for
State bank notes, and to continue
the national bank notes by per
mitting the banks to deposit first
rate securities for circulation in
the place of the retiring national
bonds. His plan was explained by
him at the recent convention of
the American Bankers' Association,
at San Francisco. It ?B the purpose
of the scheme to make it impossi
ble that State bank notes of in
ferior value to the national bank
notes should circulate. Whether
his plan would be effective or not,
"wildcat" currency is most remote
from Mr. Harrier's thoughts, nor is
it in the mir -1 of any one except
the stum? akers and editors
who are try ii ;o find in it a cam
paign "scare."--Harper's Weenly.
Mutual Insurance Company for
A convention, composed of
farmers of York county, was held
in the opera house last Saturday
for the purpose of organizing a
branch of the "Farmers' Mutual
Insurance company," of Chester,
There were present about thirty
representative farmers from dif
ferent sections of the county, and
a temporary organization was
affacted by the unanimous selec
tion of Captain R. H. Glenn as
chairman and Mr. G. L. Riddel as
J. S. C. Carpenter, of Chester,
who was present as organizer, by
request of the chair, explained the
operation of the proposed company.
His explanation in brief is as fol
lows: The organization is for
mutual insurance against fire,
wind and lightning, and it
pioposes t:> furnish insurance to
its members at actual cost. Each
member is io pay an initiation fee
of 50 cents per $100 on the amount
of insurance he proposes to carry,
and the losses by fire, wind or
lightning, are to be paid on the
assessment plan, each policy to by
assessed propotionate on its face
value. The amount of policies will
be limited to two thirds or three
fourths of the value of the property
ouwbich they are carried. Once
insured, the policy holder is at no
further expense, except upon the
levy of such assessments as may
be rendered necessary in case of
losses. Each'county association is
separate and distinct from other
counties, and is responsible only
for lossess of members within its
territory. There are to be no
salaried officers, and it is intended
that the premium of 50 cents per
$100 shall pay all expenses-York
