Washington, Feb. 28, 1S90. Senator Allen of Nebraska, did a very unusual thing when he presented the ultimatum of the for the free coinage of silver the populist senators would furnish the votes needed to put the amended bill through the senate. Of course Senator Allen knew that his pro- the action taken meaningless so far as it will commit this govern to hire an army of spies scattered throughout the United States to watch ever^ body suspected of strongly sympathizing with the Cubaus, and to maintain a lobby in Washington which is spending money freely to influence the opinion of congressmen. The friends of Cuba, in congress, are expressing the opinion thai mem bers of the administration are much more zealous in placing U. S. officials'"under the orders of the Spanish minister, to capture al leged fillibusting parties bound for Cuba, than is actually neces-1 sary to strictly maintain the neutrality laws. "He laughs best who laughs last," is ancient, but it is none the less applicable to the present situation in the senate. The re publicans have been doing con siderable laughing at the demo crats because of the financial differences between the Cleveland wing and the silver wing of the party, but the democrats had their laugh when the open split between the gold republicans and the silver republicans took place on the floor of the senate this week, showing that it was but anothet-instance of "the pot call ing the kettle black" for either of the old parties to laugh at the other on account of financial differences. However, it was nuts for some of the democrats to hear Senator Morrill, apparently following the advice lately given by Secretary Carlicle, by trying to read the silyer men out of the epublican party, and Senator Teller replying, that although the silver men could get along without the party better than the partv could get along without them they did not intend them to allow themselves to be read out because they declined to change their financial views to accord with those held by the Cleveland democracy and the Morrill repub licanism of the country. He said the silver men would stay in the epublican party until they got ready to get out. The A. P. A. won a decided victory this week when the house amended the Indian appropria tion bill by providing that none of the money therein appropriat ed should go to Catholic Indian schools. It is a question whether the senate will strike out that amendment. The senate has al ready shown, by confirming the nomination of Gen. Coppinger that a large majority of its mem bers are opposed to the A. P. A., sudden changes are not un known in that. body. The limited chances that a bill favorable to thc building of the Nicaragua canal with govern ment assistance, either direct or by guarantee of the canal com pany's bonds, had to get through congress at this session have been materially lessened by a deter mined crusade against the canal under any conditions, on the ground that it would if construct ed, be more of a menance to the peace of the United States than a benefit commercially. The friends of the canal still express confi dence that a favorable bill will pass the house and the senate, but that is just what they are here to say. This new crusade may or may not have any more substantial backing than the de sire of the owner of the New York Herald to get notoriety for his paper, but it will all the same influence nine men out of every ten who were in doubt to declare against the canal. To that ex tent the crusade will be a factor in the situation. Ambassador Bayard may as well brace himself to receive that house resolution of censure, for having spoken slightingly of Americans and American affairs, as he will get it very soon. The resolution has been reported to the house, and it is going to be adopt ed, sure pop. THE ART AMATEUR.

Bernhardt, Modjeska and Duse Said to Have No Living Rivals. There are perhaps only three living actresses now in active life to whom the title "great" would be applied by com mon oonsent. These are Sarah Bernhardt, Helena Modjeska and Eleonora Duse. Janausohek, alas I although still upon the stage, belongs to the past, while El lon Terry, with all her dainty skill aud radiant charm, has not yet reached those heights to which genius alone can as pire. Each of them excels in ways pe culiar to herself. Bernhardt, after carrying off all the laurels offered in the artificial and de clamatory school of French tragedy, has devoted her maturest powers to the il lustration of the most violent passions conceivable by morbid imagination. Her achievements in this direction havo been extraordinary, and her dramatic genius cannot be disputed, but some of her lat est triumphs have been won in defiance of most of the laws of nature and many of the rules of true art. Modjeska, if less potent in the inter pretation of tho fiercest emotions than her French rival, need fear no compari son with lior in poetic tragedy, while in the field of poetic comedy she is un rivaled. Her performances of ."Juliet-, Rosalind and Ophelia are almost ideal ly beautiful. Eleonora Duse, whose fame has blazed up with meteoric suddenness, is pro eminent above all actresses of her time for versatility, that raro gift of imper sonation, still rarer among women than among men, which can conceal the real beueath tho assumed identity without resorting to the common expedients of theatrical disguise. The phrase that such or such a part was assumed by this or that actor is heard every day. It is a convenient, conventional and meaning less expression.
