IIEPBE.SE3TTATIVE ClLUiLEH IL LoiiE, of
Wilmington, the one member of the House
from Delaware, is aaid to bo the eoniintf
United States Senator from his State in
c-ae an appointment should bo necessary
to till a vacancy, caused by the selection
of Senator Day ard for a Cabinet posi
tion. Mr. Lore loars the reputation of an
honest man with independent views.
When the MeKinley-Wallace contested
election case wuj np during the last ees
tiiou ho made a speech in support of Me
Kinley. Tue decadence of the State of Nevada,
is attracting attention. That State cast
HU'JO votes for its first Presidential elec
tors, ami at the recent election only 12,
717 were cast. The Territorial Enter
prise says that Nevada is in a state of
collapse," and that "only some lucky
chance can rescue it from the catastro
phe which now seems inevitable.' As
there is no law for the reduction of a
State to the territorial ranks, it would
appear, that tho only way out, if the pres
ent decline continues, will bo to annex a
neighloring territory or State to swell
SrrrosE tho President makes a con
tract with a foreign power called a treaty
which is concurred in by a two-thirds
vote in the Senate, and suppose that the
foreign party to the contract becomes, in
complying with its terms, a creditor of tho
United States; suppose again that tho
United States enters into a contract with
a man for service as a Beaman and tho sea
man performs tho service according to
the contract, and thus becomes a credi
tor of tho Government, and, finally, sup
pose no appropriation is made by Con
gress to meet the credit in either'case,
does that of the one more than that of
the other constitute what Secretary Chan
dler calls "a lawful debt of the Oovern
President Airmen may havo been
studying history. If ho has observed tho
fate of that other New York fisherman
chorion to the Vico-Presidency for tho
last term preceding his own, it is but nat
ural that he should bo looking after a
Senatorship, or some other means of sav
ing himself from oblivion. It is doubtful
whether, to-day, one-half tho voters in
thix country could tell positively whether
William A. Wheeler is living or dead.
And yet Wheeler was not elevated to tho
Vice-Presidency by an accident. Ho
worked his way gradually to the josition
of chairman of the Ways and Means com
mittee in Congress and a leading place
on the floor of the House loforo his pro
motion to the higher placo from which so
many havo dropped into obscurity.

A. K. McClure, of tho Philadelphia
Times, teeum tihave bceu most favorably
impressed by Governor Cleveland at his
interview with him the other day. In re
ferring to Cleveland' care for business
interests, Mr. McClure Bays: The one
subject on which there is the most pub
lic concern touching Cleveland' coming
administration is the one that he dis
cusses with eoual freedom and emphasis.
I refer to tho great business interests of
tho whole country. He is a natural bus
iness Executive. He loves business
fidelity, he believes in business methods
and he will faith f idly fulfil his publicly
repeated pledge to conduct the adminis
tration of the Government on thorough
business principles. He does not merely
look to business administration as the
limit of his duty in enforcing honest gov
ernment. He carries his business statea
manship to the extent of business legis
lation to promoto healthy and enduring
business prosperity" This is at least
another hopeful indication. That the
coming administration will be mostly, if
not entirely Democratic; there need be
no doubt, but if Cleveland shall abide by
tho convictions he has expressed, and
gather about him as his assistants only
the best men in his party, his administra
tion may bo honest and able, and com
mand tho confidence of the people. At
any rato it is better to givo tho future

Philadelphia Times: Spain is ready to
give us somo more things we don't want
if tho Senate will only ratify tho treaty.
Chicago Inter Ocean: Cleveland's
Christmas letter to George William Cur
tis was not a comforting thing to put into
any old-fashioned Democrat'8 stocking.
A, A". McClure: I known as much
about tho new Cabinet as any outside the
tho few who aro in the closest confidence
with the new President, and that is just
nothing at all.
Buffalo Telegraph: The pastor of
Plymouth will probably be given somo
placo at home, where he can continue to
fill the office ho held during tho campaign
that of Minister Extraordinary to
G rover Cleveland.
Philadelphia Record: If Congress is
to intervene for the regulation of railroad
companies under the clause of the Con
stitution empowering that body to regu
lato commerce imiong tho States, the
Iteagan bill is a fair and moderate meas
ure for tho purpose.
Boston Transcript: Tho truth is that
Bandall is inserting tho wedge that is to
split not only tho Democratic party, but
also the solid South. But it must at tho
same time leave the Republican party
floundering in tho bog of uncertainty, for
what becomes of tho Republican party
without a 44 solid South?"
Detroit Times: The trouble with Gen.
Logan is too much fighteo-fightee. He is
never happy unless he is in a row. And
some timo ho will be thrown in the ditch.
It looks now as if his fight against the
confirmation of Curtis will do the busi
ness for him. And it is a pity. There is
a good deal of genuine manhood back of
his fighting tongue.
