No man in pu&lKJ. life gets out of theo'"holcii" wltlfreater case and -fwilrty than ho. The Republican meinbeis of tho New York Lcglslatuio spend weary weeks and months in preparing a "hole" for tho Governor, and when they get him into one they laugh with ghoulUh glee. Hut presently the laugh tiavelstotho other side of tho Republican face, the Gocrnor tmtiges fiom tho hole and pulls the hole out with him. The latest liolo in tho Gubornitoiial path was the one dug by Sherill Flack's minloing and subsequent conviction, aid lesignnlion of his office. Klnck was a Tammanyite.

Ail Interesting nrray of Sgurcs has he en prepared by Pension Commissioner Raum, in answer to an inquiry by Chairman Morrill uf the House Invalid Pensions Committee. Mr. Morrill wished to leiirn what would bo the probable cost of tho passage nf what Is know n as tho Serv ice lYnslnn bill. In Commissioner Knuin'g statement tho total number of Miivlvors now on tho pension rolls Is aiven ns "78,10:2, and the number not on the rolls as 872,087 General Raum us tlnmtes that the cost of tho proposed pension service for the fiscal year 1801, would be$ia,C2.),SlO. Tho Commissioner thinks that the following claims would piobably be al lowed under sections U and I of tho bill I07,2;il pending iuvalid claims, ilS.tUiO pending widows' claims, 43,037 rejected invalid claims, 04,122 probable numbci of new applications; total, 2."0,0i) oloims. at $00 per milium, $2 1 , .170, 183 02,570 pensioners under G2 years, now on rolls at less than $8 par mouth, who will probably bo Increosed !1.07 per mouth, if 2, 755,770. Tbeo amounts, to gelher with the cost of pioposed service pensions as given above, will make the totoi appropriation required J30.701.310. Geueial Raum says that a veiy im portant questlou lo consider in cornice Hon with tho cost of tho bill is tho picntly increased death-nto of ono third of tho survivors of tho Aimy. He estimates that during the not six'yeais at least 200,000 of tho survivors of the war will dio; that during tho nest twelve years at least 150,000 will have died, und that during the next eighteen years nt least 720,000 will have died, lie adds that every piovislon of the bill commends itself, to his judgment, ns wiso and just, and it seems to him that it will not impose a burden upon tho country of which tho people- will complain.

Felix Cracraft, tho well-known corre spondent, has completely flopped over to the Republican party, and is now a devoted .follower of the lion. Matthew Stanley Quay. Up to a few months ago Felix was a rabid llandall Demo crat, but ho has changed front because, he says, lie will not train with any party tint can only boast of one man and that man Grover Cleveland who is fitted for the Presidency. To day Senator Quay met Cracraft for the llrst time sinco he form ally joined the Pennsylvania Rcpuhli can Association. Tho Senator quietly remarked: "Felix, what do you know foi tho the good of tho order?" , Felix iravo a salaam something after tho fashion of Ilughey Dougherty in his great Imitation of tho coloied lodgcman, and then whispered the countersign iu the Senator's ear. "That will do, FelK," said Senator Quay. "You are now a full-Hedged member of the G. O. P. I salute you." A l'l.'ltSON'AL TRIUMI'II. i Ocnrral CiooK's Last Crent SorWro to the ronntry. 1 J-'i CHI the Chlcuao Ti lliunt. I Almost the last and certainly ono ot , the most important services which the I late General Crook performed for his countiy was the opening'up to settlc I nient of the great Sioux Reservation. in I South Dakota. Tho first attcmnts. as will be remembered, were failures. Tho commissioners were confronted not nlono by tho jealousies and suspicions of tho Inejlans, which are always strong, but by tho still moro potent Inffnenccs of the cattlemen and sfpaawmen, who had not only Ingratiated themselves with them by valuable presents, but had succeeded in convincing them that Con gress could not legally open up tho reservation; that if it did the Supreme Court would set It aside, and that thoy could get better figures for their lauds than tho Government offered. Tho situation appeared hopeless un til General Crook took tho matter In hand, ire know the Indian chiefs per sonally. They had had many a tough experience with him. Ho was a hanl lighter and moro than once ho had whipped them and administered severe punishment. They had n respect which amounted almost to awe for the great fighter, against whom they could never prevail, and, moro thaH this, they had confidence in him. He had never mado them n piomisc which had not been kept. They implicitly believed all ho told them, for he had always kept his word with them. "When ho met the chiefs, thciofoie, he selected the most intelligent of them, particularly those who could read, and luboiid with them individually. Ho convinced them that tho Government would deal fairly by them, that the cat tlemen nnd squawmen weio only con cealing selfish and ulterior motives un der their pretended legard tor Indian welfare, and that it was for the best in terests both of themselves and theli chiidicn that thoy should accept the Government's ofter, break up their tribal lelntions, take up lands lu sev eralty, and apply tlio money they would receive for their lands to the cduci Hon of their chiidicn. Ono by ono ho gained them over, and tho lnlliieutlol chiefs bioughtln tho othcis, nnd thus, by his quiet, but ie solute policy, his wonderful knowledge of Indian chaiacter. and tho resneel and confidence he had inspired In them, i no succeecie-u in opening up liu.uoo squaie miles of territory to white settle, incnt, and preparing the way for rail roads into tho Rlnck Hills. It was a personal triumph for General Crook, and it Is doubtful whether any other man could have overcome the scruples of the Indians and induced them vol untarily tonait with their lands. MARY KNEW.

The wonderful revival in the indus tries of tho Old "World, and the conse quent increase in tho consumption of, and tho attendant demand tor, coal has.brought very vividly before) us tho disabilities under which wo labor in lacking a merchant fleet. .Tustnoiv it would be something titryond price, a veritable royal road to a sure and profitable foreign trade. England has been annually supplying "Franco and the Mediterranean ports with millions of tons of coal, but now England wants her coal for homo consumption, and Franco is reported to bo making an attempt to meet the demand on the Mediterranean, - although she has hitherto not been able to supply her ow n demand. "With the spirit that moved King Richaid on Rosworth Field, when ho shouted: "A horse, a horse, my king dom for a horse!" the American coal operator, with no market foi his sur plus production, might well bopxr aoned for singing lor a ship. Tho gieat difficulty in Kuiopo is to get a looting for a foreign commodity, but once that footing Ens been obtained, the conservative forces of Kuiopean chaiacter oiler a pretty sure foundation on which to build up a peimancnt trade.

A CniTic leportcr called at tho school building, corner of Seventeenth and Q streets, nnd was shown some of the re niaikablo work these voung people arc engaged In. In an upper room, the Interior of which umiiided him of Rdisoii's wizard shop In miulatma, ho found Piofessor IL M. Riown, who is in charge of tho work, surrounded by a number of his male and female pupils. They weie eimngcd in electroplating with silver, nickel and copper and electro- etclilng, and Hio woiKtney liavonccom pllshedwus displayed on a series of long shilvcs and tables. Professor Rrown is taking great Interest In this delicate work. Ilo believes that the colorid vouth should bo instructed In such matteisin order to broaden their views nnd lit them to llaht the battle of life with a practical knowledge as well as a theoretical one. Tho work of cleetio plating Is doiioin the same manner as is employed by jewelers, and w hllo tho reporter was iheio several articles of brass, etc., were dipped Into Hio baths and qificlily sil vered, nickel-plated or given a bright copper hue. Tho foi m of allttlo girl etched In copper by electricity on a background of silver by Miss Mabel Ruby, attracted much attention, a3 did copies of tho original seal of the South ern Confederacy. Thu molds of Hie latter weie mado by the pupils from tho original iu tho possession of nn olliclal of the "War Department. Copies of tho Grand Army badgo wore scatteicd about, while on ono of tho shelves was a quaint little niulo in copper, which the pupils havo christened "McGlnty's mule." A copy of Locko, molded In metal from a marblo original, was cer tainly nn artistic piece of work; also a panel containing a Gcunnn peasant scene. Thodilllcult task of combining" on a Sieco of copper both silver and bronc as been successfully accomplished by tho youii" electricians, and old brass thimbles long sinco discarded by their owners aro exhibited, clad in a shining garb of silver. On another shelf was nn old daguoncotype picture of MrS. Louisa Jacobs, who was a famous col ored help-meet among tho soldiers during tho Into war. The difficult and scientific task of loproduclug this' by electricity was accomplished by the school. The malo scholars havo constructed a fiiealarm station similar to thoso in use in tho city, which is in successful operation. It is box "No. 123," nnd when tho ciank is turned the numbers one. two and three aro struck on u gong In a distant part of the room. The mechanism which operates "No. 123" fornicily did duty in nil old clock. Another attachment to tho alarm is in a miniature two story dwelling in one corner of the school-room It Is In geniously and scientifically auaugell so that should tho tempcratuie In tho houso exceed a certain degiee, tho alarm box sounds "123" scvcial times in succession. A railroad in miniatuio. onerated bv electricity on an clev ntcd track, with an original turn-table, Is another feature of tho exhibit, as is a hydrostatic press, a contribution fiom section A, second year. Miss Laura "Wilkes, ono of the advanced pupils, directs all tho woikof silver plating. Theie are 400 scholars In the high school, but ns yet only soventeen of them mo engaecd in the ciectrotyping department. They spend three hours each week on this work, nnd as it is tho first of the kind over attempted in the schools of the District, white or colored, it is attracting much attention in educa tional circles.
