Cuban resolutions, is, of course, not
doing so to please the. Spanish lob

make, their Spanish employe! s think
they are earning their money. The
Senate Committee on Foreign Rela

to conference by directing Senator
Sherman to get a vote upon ihetn as
soon as possible. How soon that will

Senator Vest made the hit of the
week iu a semi-humorous speech in
favor of Senator Cannon's resolution
direetiug Secretary Smith to carry out
the law by opening the 2,000,000 acres
comprised in the Unconipahgre reser
vation in Utali to the public. He
started out by calling attention to the
Administration's disposition to misun
derstand the Western people, and
threw the entire Senate into laughter
by the following reference to I'resideut
Cleveland's speech at the New Yolk
Home Missionary meeting: "Our Presi
dent stout with Dr. Talmage on one
side and the Rev. Sheldon Jackson on
the other, and gave us a new version
of that blessed old mis-iiouary hyiuu
which we havu heard so often iu our
" I'rom -Montana's sinful mountain.
from Utah's wlcUed plains,
They call us to deliver
Our land fiom Lrror's chains."
As was expected the Home made the
resolution censuring Ambassador
Bayard the basis for a partisan discus
sion. According to the present programme
Presideut Cleveland will shortly ex
tend thu civil service rules so as to
cover about every employee of the
Federal Go eminent outside of mem
bers of the cabinet and the judiciary.
If done, the Administration which will
come into power next March would
have practically no patronage to dis
tribute. This docs not strike the poli
ticians favorably. Iu fact, it does not
strike anybody outside of the present
officeholders and those who are de
pendent upon them very favorably.
Whilo there never was any sense in a
wholesale change iu the smailfry offi
cials of the Government every time
theic was a change of administration,
it tquares witli common sense and good
business ideas to have those tilling
executivo positions in political sym
pathy with the administration. If
President Cleveland makes the pro
posed blanket extension of the civil
service rules it will be the first step
towards the total abolition of those
rules by his successor.
The fact is not likely to be over
looked by foreign nations that the
naval appropriation bill for the fiscal
year begiuniug July 1st next, which
was this week agieed upon by the
House Committee on Naval Affairs,
carries more money for increase of
our navy than has beeu carried in a
single bill since tho war. The build
ing of four battle-ships and fifteen tor
pedo boats are provided for iu the bill.
The new boats are all to be built by
contract, and to meet any emergency
that may arise for hurrying them the
Secretary of the Navy is authorized to
spend as much of tho total appropria
tion as iu lils judgment may be neces
sary during the coming Usual year.
Representatives of nearly all the
railway labor organizations were given
hearings by the House Labor Com
mittee this week. They all spoke in
favor of the bill of Senator Voorhees,
giving any railway employee who is
arrested for contempt of court thongiit
to appeal to any other court and to
a trial by jury; also the bill introduced
by Representative Erdman of Pennsyl
vania, providing for a national board
of arbitration to settle disputes be
tween railways and their employees,
and Representative Phillips' bill to
create a national non-partisan board
to look after the interests of employers
and employees and make recommenda
tions for their mutual benefit.
The giving of a dinner and recep
tion in honor of Secretary and Mrs.
Olney by the British Ambassador this
week was something very unusual for
Lent, and the presence as guests of the
Venezuelan minister and Sir Stafford
Noithcote, M. P., who was formerly
Lord Salisbury's piivato secretary,
naturally resulted iu originating lots
of gossip coimecting the affair with the
Yeui'isUi Ian question. In order to
quiet the gossip it was given out that
tho entertainment was tho regular
annual dinner and -reception always
giveti by tho ambassador in honor of
tho Secretary of State and his wife,
and which was not given this year at
tho usual time because tho embassy
was then in mourning on account of
the death of the Priuee of Battenburg.
The report that Senator Pngh and
Hon. Don M. Dickinson, ex-postmaster
general, had a row because the former
spoke slighliugly of the President was
not ti tie. The men did exchange hard
wouls, but the only cause was that the
latter was under the influence of some
thing which made him forget the
proper manners of a gentleman. The
incident occurred in the dining-room
of a well-known restaurant, and was
all 01 er iu two minutes. It began
through Representative McWilliams of
Tennessee offering to introduce the
men, who, strange to say, didn't know
