ns. II A. Smvelv, clerk of the
supreme court for the central divis
ion, in an interview, scjuts at the
rug:;c!tion that the Mate supreme
coiiTt will interfere to invalidate the
senatorial apportionment bill.
The po'tmaotcr general has issued
an order providing that hereafter
only short names, or names of one
word only, shall be accepted as names
for newly established postolliccs.
Kvrptions may lc made by the de
partment w hen the name is histor
ical or has In-come lucal by long
nuage. atisfactory reasons mut
le prewntcl to the department for
changes of postoflice names. The
Iosl master general says that this
rule will remove a source of annoy,
ance to the department and of injury
to the HstaI service.
TroKiA Herald: If the senatorial
apportionment mad by the last leg
islature was such "an 'infamous ger
rymander" as is claimed by the re
publican leaders of this state, it il
strange that Mr. Hunt and the other
eminent gentlemen iutcrcsted in bav.
ing that gerry maniliT sumMied should
hate taken the course of an ordinary
shyster and petty fogging police
court lawyers to "bring axut the
smashing. The case is to be tried
first bvfotc a republican judge
against a republican county clerk
and is to In? defended by a republican
state's attorney. That looks queer.
Hut the uevrct thing is the fact
that both the complaint and the
answer were tiled at the same time.
It looks as if State's Attorney Wil
son had helped Hunt make out his
ease, and that Hunt had helped Wil
son write his answer.
A I'liiLAi'Ei.i'iii a dispatch states
that a company composed of New
York and Philadelphia capitalists
will build an electric railway from
New York to Washington! The
tracks will be elevated to avoid grade
crossings, and two main tracks will
be constructed. A third or center
rail will transmit the power instead
of an overhead trolley system. Ves-
tibuled cars fitted like Pullmans will
be run. The company says it can
run the cars at the rate of 200 miles
an honr. Congress will he x-tiiioncd
to grant a right of way in the Dis
trict of Columbia. If a maximum
speed of 120 miles an hour is not at
tained all rights and privileges will
lie revoked. Sew York, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Delaware and Mary
land legislatures will also be asked
for rights of waj. The line will run
Via Philadelphia and Iialtimorn.
I n i ted States Consul E. II. Tiu
niachcr, at Maracailo, Venezuela, has
just made an oflicial report in
whieh he says that the trade between
the fluted Mates and Venezuela has
greatly diminish"! in the past few
years "in consequence of the imposi
tion by ns of duties upon Venezu
elan products whieh hitherto enjoyed
free entry." Venezuela is one of the
South American countries with
which a reciprocity treaty was at
tempted, and because it failed of
recognition the last administration
retaliated by in p.siug duties on cer
tain products from that country.
This attempt to force the Venezu
elans into a treaty under what is
known as "the bulldozing clause" of
the Mi Kinley tariff law has nut onlv
faili'd. but, as Consul PlumaclicY
shows, it has resulted in transferring
to Kuroie a great deal of the trad i
whieh was formerly enjoyed by thii
Consul Plumachcr scaks of the
falling off in shipments of the Ueil I),
line of steamers particularly on ac
count of the praeiieally prohibitive
duties impised on Venezuelan pro
ducts. He says that for a time it
was a question whether sufllcient
freight could lie obtained to warrant
ft continuance of prolitaMe business.
Finally ha says many European ex.
porters began to find an increased
demand for their goods, correspond
ing t' decreased business with the
United States, and now the same line
of steamers receives at New York for
reshipment to Venezuela, goods that
have come all the way from Europe.
The extra expense of handling is
warranted by the difference made by
The people of this country are fast
coming to the conclusion that no
government ran force foreigners to
trade on a jug-handle basis. The
way to get the trade of other nations
is to throw open our ports free to the
commerce of every nation.

The following information as to
the standing, efficiency, etc., of the
Illinois National Guard is obtained
from '"The Organized Militia ot the
United States," just issued by the
military information division of the
war department. The comparison is
" Illinois and New .York stand sec
ond in numlsT liable to military
service, viz.: 650,000. Illinois stands
seventh in size of national guard
4,777. Illinois stands eleventh in
icrccntagc of attendance at camp,
viz.: 76.6 per cent.. , Illinois is one of
the 22 states which designate the
active militia as national guard; one
of the nine states having regularly
organized and instructed signal
corp. Only two states, one of which
was Illinois, had a division encamp

The majority of the states have no
plans for the concentration of their
troops in a case of emergency.'" Of
the three states having quite well-dcvelojH-d
plans for concentrating
and supplying troops (in a case of
emergency Illinois stands second.
Illinois is one of the states appro
priating more than $103,000 per an

states whieh requires its National
