The Republican pnsidential situa
tion is unchanged. The McKiuley men
are making the mi.st noise, but they
are nofso-coutident as they appear to
be, or el.sp they would not be con
stautly trying to stampede the opposi
tion by starting stories about having
rccened rcciuits from his opponents.
The opinion of the inexperienced is
about unanimous that McKiuley will
get the nomination, but tho old poli
ticians, whether for or against him,
doubt it very much. Those opposed
to him cite long lists of precedents
showing that the man who leads but
does not hao enough votes to win on
the tirst ballot rarely wius. But tho
McKinley mcu insist that he will have
enough to win on the Dist ballot.
There is do question about most of tho
Democrats wanting McKinley to win;
they regard him as n weak candidate,
and for that reason they aro helping
his boom all they can.
Although the House Committee on
Territories has followed the example
of the Senate committee and ordered
that the bills for the admission of New
Mexico ami Arizona as States bu ro
pot' eel, ouo doesn't have to bo tho
soveuth son of a seventh son to predict
that neither bill will become a law at
this session of Congress. Whether it
is right or wrong to keep" these Tor
ritot'les out of statehood cuts no figuin
in the matter at all. Tho anti-siher
puople have made up thefftuiuds that
no more silver Senators shall be pro
vided for, and while the Senate, which
Is dominated by silver men, may pass
both bills, neither 'can get through the
House, which is dominated by ami
silver men. But eveu if th bills could
get through both branches of Con
gress they would be promptly vetoed
by Presideut Cleveland, the bilteiest
anti-silver man of them all.
Notwithstanding the statement of
Representative Bingham, in presenting
a conference report on the legislative,
exec",tie and juqicial appropriation,
bill, citing the Senate amendments,
which the House conferees had de
clined to agreo to, that the average
OnSt of employes of the House for each
member was 1939 a y ear, against an
average cost "Of Senate employes for
each Senator of 4,488, the House
agreed to accept amendments provid
ing for an addition of thirty -eight
clerks to Senators uot chairmen of
committees, and to a.q iuproqs.o in
the pay of, dl euator's clerks from
$1,200 to $1,500 a year. And, mind
you, tho clerks to members of tho
HU,8o aro ouly paid $100 a mouth
while Congress is actually iu session.
This indicates then uth of the adage:
'Demand deference and you'll got It."
Certainly the Semite demands what it
gets from the House.
Silver pim.cts ani edging ,liat
the National Association of Democratic
clubs, which "a Virginia man calls "an
association of a few Democratic clubs,"
is merely the tail to the Cleveland sin
gle standard'goldkite. Tho executive
eoni in itteo of this association held a
meeting in Washington tills week and
named St. Louis as tho place, and Sep
tember 30 next as tho time for holding
the national convention of the association.
The long string of World's Fair
quarrels was recalled by a petition this
eek sent to the Seiiato b ex-Senator
Palmer, who was president of tho
exposition, asking tho passage of a
riMiliition to compel Mrs. Potter
Palmer, president of tho boaid
of lady maniigeis; Mrs. Virginia C.
Meiidith, another member of that
board; President Higgiubotham, of the
Chicago board of managers; George R.
Davis, director-general, and other
officials of the exposition, to make
1 heir reports to him, as he claims tho
law directs. Hesius Davis made his
leport to Cougiess, Mrs. Palmer to the
president, and that the others have
made no reports It is fortunate thai
Piesideut Palmer is an ex-senator;
olheiuise his tempest in ateapol would
receive Utile attention from Congress.
Ii is not certain that it will get much,

Tho publishing by some of the Ten 1
