It has cost Japan so far $150,000,

China will eventually foot the bill,
Japan can stand it.
Tkubably if there is one act of his
political life that W. R. Carey re
grets more than another, it is that of
threshing among the dunes of Car
bon Cliff for votes for Fred llemen
way. We are plad that Steve Hull has
gotten in out of the cold at last. It
was a long, weary wait but Steve
never faltered in" the belief that he
woulii linrlly be rewarded for his fi
delity and devotion.
After as good as promising the
depntrolnp to W. R. Carey, ol Car
lien Cliff, Sheriff-elect 'ilemenway
turns around and hands the plnm to
Capt. W. J. Ranson. This is proba
bly t!ie republican idea of reciproc

Wi't shonld the republicans of

STr.niES U. Elkins expresses a
fear that if Jndge Goff, of the United
States circuit court, should be elect
ed senator from West Virginia, the
president would apjoint William L.
Wilson to fill the vacancy on the
lench. Probably what disturbs non.
Stepbnn most is'not that Mr. Wilson
would get GofTs place, but that Goff
woull get his. Elkins has been lay
ing pifc for one of the West Virginia
senatorships ever since 1881. It
would be pitiful if Judge Goff, who
is thr most popular republican in the
state, should now bob up, and leave
him only his labor for his pains.

to put the brute Fitsimmons behind
the burs. Ho is as clearly guilty of
manslaughter as any striped felon in
the penitentiary. Some of the nau
seating creatures who practice "the
manlv art" are defending Fitzsim
monb on the ground that the blow
was accidcutal. Men who know any
thing aMut boxing do not need to be
told that this is mere nonsense. Of
coure, Fitzsimnions did not mean to
kill Lis man. He meant to "hit him
hard," Nissibly, as a matter of disci
pline. Like many another, he was
unfortunate in the death of his vic
tim. A "pug" doing the lock-step
is not as grateful to the eye of his
criminal sympathizers as "a pug"

A TK!KtM exhibition of fanati
cism run wild is given by the criti
cism of Mrs. Cleveland by members
of a Pennsylvania branch of the W.
C. T. U., because she followed the
usual enstotn and broke a bottle of
champagne in christening the steam
,k kipt. Louis, launched at Philadel-
-phia last Monday. The criticism is
nil the more senseless because Mrs.
Cleveland is a consistent advocate of
temiierance, never drinking wine at
her own table or anyone's else table.
In this case sbo was an invited
guest and had no mote to do with
what wr.s to be used at the christen
ing titan a gnest would have to do
with what was served on vonr table.
The assertion that the act on the
part of the tint lady was an insult

to l.er estimable predecessor in the
while bouse, Mrs. U. H. Hayes, p as
set, n understanding. All questions
as to the nse of cbampague oi of

perfect right to follow her own sense
ol ' propriety, ana sne am it most
grau'ifullr, and even were it entirely
optional with her as to what she
used, the W. C. T. U.. nor anyone
ele, had no right to take exception,
simply because she maintained her
own independent views, which bap

BESSEMER ON BESSEMER STEEL. "
Blorrrlon Qnlekness la Converting Cast
Iron Into the Hardened Metal.
In The Engineering Review Sir Hen
ry Bessemer has an article on the steel
industry which boars bis name. He re
minds U3 that a third of a century ago
Sheffield steel made from the costly bar
iron of Sweden realized from 50 to
C0 a ton. Now, by tho Bessemer proc
ess, steel of excellent quality can be
made direct from crndo ig iron at a
cost ridiculously small compared with
former prices and iu quantities which
the old steel workers never dreumud of
dealing with at one operation.
In lien of tho slow and expensive
process of convrrthig wrought iron bars
into crndo or blister steel !y 10 days'
exposnro at a very high tcmp-.-rature to
tho action of cnrli::i, east iron worth
only 3 a ton is, Sir Hoary says, con
verted into Bcs. i mer cast . tixl in 30
minutes wholly without skilled manip
ulation or tho employment of fuel, and
while, still maintaining its initial heat
it can at ouco bo rolled into railway
bars or other inquired forms.
Tho article gives a vivid pictnro of
all that has been brovght about by this
revolution in a manufacture in which
np to our own time there had beeu no
change since blades of matchless tenspcT
were wrought in the ft-rg'-s of liaiuus
ens and Toledo. Stx-1 is now ndapted
to a thousand pti-jvws of which onr
ancestors had no ooii'.eruki.u.
By way of giving some iiiea of the.
enormous production of TJ-.-.-mer i-teel
now, Sir Henry aslw us to ii.iagiuo a
wall 5 feet in thickness and 20 feet
high, like a gigantic armor plate form
ed into a circle and made to surround
London. The inelosure so made would
extend to Watford on the north side, to
Croydon on the south, to Woolwich on
the cast and to Richmond on the west.
It would contain an area of 71'5 square
miles, and this irreat wall of London,
weighing 10,500,000 tons, would just
be equal to one year's production of
Ciettiua fcven fir a Miivareo."
