Politics has cooled to some extent. A pa
few, however, are agitating the Third sul

will not suffer enough from such doctrine un
to get it into their heads tospltthe Dem- asu

wh will fail not to execute and perform tir
every duty with interest to his district Eu

comes in and appointe another commit- rat
tee composed in all probability of the m=
same men, to go through the same farce. aen
One of these committees was recintly afr
appointed by the Secretary of the Treas- tht
ury for the purpose of revisitir the roll '1
ofemployes of the bureau of Engraving tio
and Printing and recommoneding an ad- sun
justment of compensation and clasis
Ication of the force, and this week it on
submitted its report, a synopsis of which i
appeared in the local paneos under the to'
head, "cutting down expenses." A care- m,
ful reading of the long and most careful it
prepared report shows that the recom- gr
mendations of the committee, which ar
have been approved by the Secretary sl
and put into effect, will result in an ap- au
parent annual saving of the enormous su
sum of '2,8. It is dollars of last year's It
bird nests that the savings of five years th
under this "retrenchment" will not be a
as much as the expense attendant upon hI
the sittings of that committee. It is only Pl
when one thinks of the millions spent
each year by the Bureau of Printing and th
Engraving that the full absurdity of a m
committee solemnly recommending an in
annual reduction of in its expenses of w
l268 becomes apparent. W
The international monetaryoonference eo
has received another set back. This
time It is the prevalence of cholera in ai
European cities, which adds to the difm
culty of selecting a place for the meet
ing of the conference. Nothing is yet e
known here about what the Gladstone fe
government of Great Britain proposes
doing in relation to the conference. It is hi
now thought that it will be late In Octo- ii
bet and possibly November before the lil
conference meet., instead of in Septem*
her as at first supposed. ol
Mr. Herbert, the British Charge d Af- In
faire ina this oily, has had several con
feremoes with the Seeretary of State this
week, but nething is known of their
usmtmfu sr ithan that they related to

Any one coming in and go!ng about
the college will stand in perfect amaze

ough repairs. She is an old and isliable
institution, and has borne the pressure,
with honor thus far, and stands to-day
with her future before her, with tokens
of even grander succpes than she ha.
Sohieved in her past history. Her board
