In hit defeat at the bands Of the Harvard alumni for the place of Over wcr, 5lr. Lodge bat received a rebuke of almoat intolerable Mverity. Suck a nbnae, administered in melt a manner and under inch circumstances, carries with it a stigma which no man would wilHngtywear, and which to a gentle man of the Honorable Lodge's wetcn firms mntt be galling beyond all words. If one would know exactly what that Minna means, the following from the Notion 2W will abundantly explain: It the Hon. Henry Cabot Lodge wonld seek tbe eante ol Ms recent humiliation, be need lint Interrogate bis own conscience. Let him awl Ms friends eonalder, before charging the nlnmnt of the UnlTerelty with unworthy methods ami Improper motives, whether In hie public life he has discharged Ma duty a a rcbolar.

A eutiatltuet cy admission to which is.tt rondent on education does not lore to honor those who have opett'y set up self e-klng w the guiding rule of ootwlnot.

Certainly It it not possible la tbe Senate to bring to bear the agea desof compulsion which Mr Itaed fouml it noceMtry to employ in tbe Uoum. If tbe bill pattee.it will do to because tbe Republican Seaatort really with it to pM and not because they have been ditfooced and bullied Into supporting it. Had the House been left free of such Innuencet it would have defeated the measure. The chance are that the Senate It itlll more conservative.

TBI REID-WCGE XfiASURfi, A Ktirtet Stamtrty of etv' lWmvtres th Hermblte Pnttf fo le a nl( In , mcTreitri rreevrtrm. From tht yen Tor , M. Tbe word bayonet doet not occur I th bill, but the Federal lmtonet It In It, fm the same. At Mr. BroMus of Pennsylvania declared to the House latt week, if the Mil becomes a law tbe whore Army and Navy of the United Stales can be called on t enforce Itt provisions, ami every dollar In the Treasury expended In lead and un powder tt Ith which to suppress resist ance to Its enforcement. Federal In terference with the local elections means armed Interference, If ordered. Any other conception of the law's ultimate consequences is childish. A gentleman In Brooklyn, who is in favor of the bill, has askeu us to say in which section the bayonet appears. As we told him yesterday, the Federal bay onet can be found In every one of the fifty-seven secllons. In section 32 Its gleam Is distinctly risible. One of the sections of title 2ft, thus In corporated into the Lodge bill and made part of It, is as follows. Section 1,9M). It shall he lawfnl Tor the President of tbe United Ptate, or tnch mmi n ht mrty tmpoterr for thnl pnrpnte. to employ anch part of the land or naval forces of the united States, or of the militia, as may be heretsaty to aid In the execution of judicial process lsauel utnler sny of the preceding provisions, or as shall be necessary to prevent the violation ami enforce the dtte execution of the provisions of this title. Here are tbe bayonets, the drums, tbe blue coats.the blue Jacket, the howitzers and the Gatllngs, all ready to do the bidding of the Man on Horseback, the shadow of whose coming darkens every section of the Infamous measure pataexl yesterday by Republican rotes In the House of Bepretentatlves. Firm Me Xtw Vert ArnM, W. The reckless determination of the Ilepitbllcnns to force through the Fed eral Klectlon law Is a matter that may well arrest the serious attention of tho country. It is tho boldest and most alarming step yet taken toward centralization by a party that has always sought to build up a central poner In the Government at tbe expense of State sovereignty. JTrom tto nUmlflpMn Rtconl, t. Even the lying pretense of the Re publican organs that this was not a "Force" bill was defiantly abandoned at the last hour by the leader of tho majority in the House. When an amendment was proposed, the object of which was to prevent the use of United Slates troops at the poll, Mr. McKlnley declared, In effect, that such an auieoil uiir.t would render the act iHtiles, and that without mined forces at the polls tLc law could not be enforced. This declaration betray an amazing confi dence In the power of bitter partisan feeling to pervvtt the Judgments of men. After a quarter of a century of peace, armed ami uniformed soldiers are to re brought Into use to control elections at the behest of the Benubllcan olTlriaW aul party managers. Is it not, I n truth . a Koicc bill? Tbe Anglo Saxon population of the South deserve a better and kindlier fate than to be thrown back upon the horrors of Internal ttrlfe and misrule from which tbey with to much d I 111 cully rescued their local governments a dozen years ago. The vast butlnese interests that link North and South to gether are more potent than even the exigencies of party; and it Is likely that In one way or another the authors of the infamous Force bill will be brought to confusion and contempt. The peo ple of this country are not willing to ettablltb race hatred at a permanent factor In national politics In onler that a set of huckstering, mltcbief-making politicians may ride Into permanent power. Uiutial Jlegnton ia ("lcUafl Contour ciiU- There it much uncertainty felt to night among Republicans over tbe re mit In the House upon the National Election bill. While there are quite a number of Republicans who are verv much dissatisfied with the Lodge bllf, strong efforts are being made to prevent them from voting against it There are, however, riulte a number absent and some without pairs. It Is possible that a substitute bill of a much simpler mechanism will be presented, if the managers find that they cannot carry the peudlng bill. In any event, as things look to-night, the margin, one way or the other, is likely to be small. In case tbe bill pastes, tbe situation will be doubtful oa tbe Senate tide. One of tbe leading Republican Seaa tort who favors tbe bill said to-day that at yet its friends could not see the way to pass it. He said they would look around very carefully, and If tbey found that lit passage was doubtful tbey might decide not to bring tbe bill out of com mittee at this session. Tbe Democrats in the Senate do not believe it will be pcssible to past tbe bill agaiatt their opposition- It is so voluminous as to pre sent almost endless resource of leeHti- mate debate. Tbe proposition to make a rule to limit debate does not seem to Sain strength, and at thit hue date it it hely to grow weaker. frm It Xtw York TUMI, i. The new "Force bill" wa driven through the House of Kepteaentativee yesterday by a slender majority of six. Only two Republicans--Crd etnaa of Louisiana and Lehlbach of Xew Jer sey had th courage and Aratness to brave the tyranny of th caucus, th wrath of Dictator Heed and th resent ment of the pigmy of the White Housu, and vote against the venture. Two others Frank f Missouri and Brown of Virginia set in their teats and re futed to vote for it Probably there were at least a score of others who were convinced that the proposed law is not only infamously wrong, but a stupid blunder at a matter of party policy, but they submitted to th fHmtio and coercion which have ba nana th accepted method af the lead etc of their party la carrying any point detjeftnined upon, flinwiair fined t ar bctttry and despotic sower cannot be carried htto th Senate, and it it doubt fui if the President's personal will can tgwtffrsj itanif to strongly upon tiaat body Whatever may n the fate of this bill fas the Senate, it hi likely to be freely debated before a vet to take upon U. and there will be mote inde pendence of judgment and of actios on the peri of the members.

The crews entered are: The Falrmount of Phila delphia; Passaics, Newark, University of Pennsylvania, and the Columbia of this city. The Potomacs of this city had entered, but owing to the Absence from the city of two members of the crew It will he unable to go. Last night a busi ness meeting of the board of governors was held, and seventeen members elec ted Theriuestlonnf holdinga Potomac River regatta was discussed, nnd Messrs.

After John Bell, ex chief of the Secret Service, and his family had taken their teats in the Congressional Limited for New York on Tuesday, n gentleman boarded the train anil, handing Mr. Bell a neat little package, said, "Mr. Bell I am directed to give you this with the request that you do not open it until alter the train has pulled out." Tho mmest was complied with, and when the train was about ten miles out Mr. Bell opened the package and found a hand some gold watch with his mo nog nun i.eatly engraved on tho case, and it beautiful gold locket, ornamented with n dlamoud in the centto. It was n present from the employes of Iho Secret Service who took this opportunity to (how ihelr appreciation of Mr. Bell's administration. No foil I Combine It Is denied that there has been 'toy combination among coal dealers In tbls city to force n higher price, aud while the bldt for the District coal were much higher than the bldt for the Gnveru ment Departments, there was no com bination entered into. The reason given by a prominent dealer Is that the handling and delivery wag much less In the Government Departments that is, a thousand tons, more or leas, was delivered at one Department when the aarne quantity of coal for the District would have to be sent to half a dosen places. This would onhance tho cost of the coal. Had there been a combine the Cumberland bid would hive been more, but the bid was accepted. Mr. George L. Sheriff mode no bldt ami was wholly disinterested. The DMilct Appropriation Illll. An agreement was reached yesterday afternoon by the conference oa the Dis trict Appropriation bill. The section was entirely stricken out compelling car companies declaring over 10 per cent, dividend on their capital stock to tell eight tickets for twenty-five cents.

Tl clerical force of the United 8tes Bureau of Pensions appmn to be stdutorply engatred In prtfMrlmt for their imsnspecting Commlsatmtw, as wtll a for th Secretary of the Interior, an embarrassing official and rtoMtfcat scandal to which the recent "reraltng " imbroglio will be but a petty ami Intlg nffknnt affair. It Is understood that over a hundred applications under the act of June 27, 1890, commonly known as the "Disability Pension Act," have already been filed by clerks in the Pen sion Bureau. Many of these thoughtful but enter prising patriots, it is true, are already drawing comfortable salaries from the Treasury of the United States, salaries much larger, In fact, than they ever earned in their lives before, or would tm Able to cam If they were relegated to the similes of private life, but with an eye single to Ihe prompt repletion of their respective wallets, they rush gal lantly to the ciiAitoB unw tub runuc cntn to pick up such unconsldcied trifles as a pension of $13 per month with an unchftstened Ardor worthy of the stir ring days of 1801. Imleed.lt is stated that In a single section of one of the smallest divisions in the bureau there wereoverhalf a doren claims filed by clerks on Monday last, the first date upon which such filings were mado pos sible by President Harrison's signature of the bill. Tho ordinary and unolllclat mind would naturally suppose tlmt tho civil service employe, nlrendy paid by tho Government for ids dally labor as Its salaried servant, nnd who wns neither wounded, injured, nor disabled during or by reason of his mllltnry service, could not, under any combination of circumstances, becomo n bcnoflclary Under the recent law. Unfortunately, however, the law Itself makes no ex ception to that large class of persons now employed In the public service. It provides, under section 2: All Perrons who served ninety days or mote In the military or naval service of the Vntted Slates during the late war of the re bellion and who have been honorably dis charged therefrom, and who are now or who may hereafter be aulTerlng from a men tal orphjtlcal disability of a permanent character, not the result of tlietr own vicious habits, which Incapacitates them from the performance of manual labor In such a de gree as to render them unable to earn a su port, shall, uou making due proof of tbe fact, according to such rule and regula tions as the Secretary of tlie Interior mnv provide, he placed upon the list of Invalid pentloneis of the United States, and ix en titled to receive a pension not exceeding tl'i per mouth, and not less than $6 per mouth propoitloned to the deifve of Ina bility to earn a tiKrt; and tucli pendons tball commence from the date of the tiling of tbe application In the Tension Otllre, after tbe patsage of Mil art, uttoii proof that tbe disability tben exltted, and iltall continue during the existence of the same. " Under the official "rtilw and regula tions," published on Friday last, more over, the "noble army ot martyrs" under consideration found a further in ccntlve to rapid and concerted action, as said inlet properly designed for the benefit of tbu pensionable classes who are affected by the law all over tho country gave them In a nutshell not only brief and succinct tailing orders toward tho newly discovered "treasure Island,' but showed them that, by the use of "due diligence," thoy could GKT TIIK1I1 CLAIMS IN A1IKA11 of their lest-favored competitors at a distance, for said rules ami regulations contain the following: All peusfOBt undertblsaet wllleomnence from tbe date of tiling tbe application (exe cuted after the passage of tbe act) In the Pension Bureau. Ho application or declaration will be good It executed before June 97, I860 (date of tbe aet), or If not In tbe form substan tially prescribed by tbe Secretary, Dis charge certificates need not be filed until called for. The soldier Is entitled to any rate from 16 to $13, according to Inability to saru a support. A pensioner under existing laws may ap ply under tbls one, or a peottoBsr under this one may apply under other laws, but esn draw only one pension at tue ssme tings. This law ixtuireg, ia a soldier's ease, (1) an boaerable discharge, (2) that be served at katt ninety dejs, (3) a pemaaest physi cal or meets! Inability to earn a rapport, but not due to vicious habits. (It need not kaveorigiiisted In the service.) Among those who have rushed for ward to stake out their claims ia tbe new Eldorado Is one well known uea- sloe clerk who sot only draws a "fat" saury already, but boasts of befag worth oer 100,000, and some short time ago bespoke tbe sympathies of his lei low elerks upon tbe ground that he bad mad tome $9,000 witbia a few hours in a real estate speculation. Tbe spectacle, held up before the countiy, of taste greedy elaimaate ruakiag forward with itching palms outstretched OC XATIOSUL ALMS. while tley elbow fiom the nathway tbe lame, the halt and tbe blind those very persons, in fact, whose cases they are paid and employed to adjudicate to by no meant an edifying one and mutt necessarily give lite to consider able scandal, The famous Congres sional "salary grab" of lo7, and the excitement which it caused, driving itt bentncitiiet to return th money in frantfe haste, and th wot recent fer ment alined up by the bar accuse tion that trusted Government agents in the settletuent of th Ohlnttesw lands to far forgot their bounden duty to the seutera they were sent to aid and coun sel at to cnalf er for choice entries and corner lots themselves, are cases in point which show the unerring drift of public sentiment in dwMtr njftMtl de relictlons.
