many depsrtments. This Government
should not be forced, as it hsa been,
and Is now, to rent rooms like a tran?

claimants.
INVENTIVA NATION.
And one public building above all
others is needed here as the reflex ot
the peculiar genius of the nation and
of its supreme Intellectual distinction
In a department where It surpasses all
anoleot and modern nations. We are
the most Inventive of nations. The
free intelleot has been the most oiig
lnal and productive of all intellects.
Other natloDS have surpassed us In
literature and the fine arts, but la the
Inventive and useful arts the United
States Is far transoendant. The Patent
Offloe, established by Thomas Jefferson,
and protecting for a brief period the
only constitutional monopoly,,the right
to the exclusive enjoyment of one's
original ideas, is the crown of American
Intellectual snpremaoy over the ma?
terial world, even as the Constitution
of the United States Is the crown of
political architecture and the Union It?
self the orownlng glory of onr peopl?.
Francis Baoon says : ''The sciences
dwell sociably together, "and we should
pot on Oapttol Hill, faoing the Senate
hall, as a oompanlon pttoe to the ex
qnislte library building,now facing the
Hall of Representatives, another build?
ing of like architecture. And the
American cap?tol of letters should bave
by its side the American cap?tol of in?
ventive art, both facing this Ospltol of
the people, where their sovereignty bas
Its highest exemplification. In that ball
should bo displayed the evolutions, with
every invention indioated by tts model,
inclusive of the last Improvement. It
would be the greatest college of spplied
sotenos that the world has ever seen ; a
monument to and a stimulus to inven?
tion, and leading by gradation to those
troths of soienoe whloh hover over the
threshold of tbe age "waiting to be
oaught. "
MARINER'S NEEDLE.
It was the mariner's needle thst dis?
covered America The inventor made
the discoverer possible, and Inventive
genios is thst whioh is putting ns ahead
of all the nations. It is invention that
manifolds the thoughts of the wise and
soatters them in the humblest habita?
tion. It Is invention that has made the
poor man's oottsgo gleam in cleanliness

Will it be tlO a Say ?
The Htcbmood msn who calmly
threw ont the suggestion that membern
of the Constitutional Convention would
probably vote themselves flO a dar.
making the salary acooor.t for members
about f 1,000 a day, on tbe basis of a
membership of one hundred, maybe
one of those innocent souls who never
dresmed if stirring op s row, bot wo
doubt it. We believe be was eager ?to
see a little sport, and he Is seeing It.
There is a howl going op from one
eud of the State to the other, snd the
end la not yet
Bat lt is a serions question. If the
very best men sro sent to the soovention,
they will be men who earn $10 a day
and more in their own private bosiness.
Plsced on a money basis, tbey would
not be willing to drip their business,
msny cf them, and go for $10 a day.
Lot tbe State Is not io a condition to
pay fall value in money for the eervioes
of her best men, and they are folly
aware of this fact. It there still loft
among her beet citizens patriotism
enough to indace them to work for bar
in a crisis like this without taking Into
consideration tbe question of ?adequate
remuneration in dollars and cents? Wa
believe there is, and that they will
show it at the proper time. Tbe mem?
bers of the L?gislature get $4 a day, and
it Is oar opinion that members of the
Constitutional Convention will fix
their own compensation at something
like this figure ? Staunton News.
