The gossip which credits Mr. Blatne with an Intention to resign at an early day seems to have received a fresh and lgoto4M impetus. lie Is tald to be ills Fluted with the McKlnley bill, wlththu Lodge Kiwi Ion bill, with various tin satisfactory features In his relations with the President, ami now the story comes out again, arrayed In (he full panoply of confidence and emphasis, that he has definitely determined to withdraw from the Cabinet. It may well be that this is true. 21 r. Ilialne can hardly Ami his position satisfactory. A big man thrust aside by little men, a brainy man disre garded for narrow bigots and bluster ice ehailatans, he Is not likely to feel proud or comfortable In hi present en vironment. He knows that the Intel lect and,the character cf the ltenubH can party are hostile to both the Me Kluley and the Lodge bills. I a knows that those measures are stupid ami pestiferous. Is it not entirely probable that he may be unwilling to remain Identified with the Administra tion which fathers such indefensible blunders and that he seeks to recover a private ciilaenahlp from the entrench ments of which be can issue a private citizen's protest? There was a time, not very many months ago, when those nearest to Mr. Ultine believed that bis ambitions had departed from him with bis son Walker, and left him, Woken and despairing, by that thrice-pathetic deathbed. And, doubtless, for the mowest they were right. But it may be that time has brought its compensation and, without conferring forgetfuiness or stilling re gret, has give to Mr. Maine the bless ine of a great incentive and oppor tunity. It may be that the peril to which ha sees his party drifting, driven by the reckless folly of Uluaderers and v tasUisgs, has wakened U him anew the old yaud&HH ttrtumiui. under the impulse of which he used, In the pott, to lend tba most brilliant and marvel one tmtltafi known to our poHtlcal his tory, HstMooi.

When they went on to the stump and pledged trWMselves to lahoT for thn interests of th laboring claw, a I kno.v m.ny Of them did, they said just g!v. us a HepttWIcnn Congress and we will pass ynnr labor bills and your back ptv bill.

We thought the Iemocrats were hard enough on tn, but the llepubllcan House Is still harder. Is the Commlt lee on Rules, of which the Speaker Is chairman, determines to ignore tn en tirely, In the face of nil Its promlsjes to the contrary? It certainly looks very much that way. I know the chalrmin of the Committee on Appropriations has sworn that we shall not have an hour or a thing, and If he rules the House, tbe Speaker Included, of course he will make bis word good. As the mutter stands now, the Committee on Lubor might ns well be wiped out, and yet there are no better men in the House than those who compote the Committee on Labor. The thing is simply outrageous, and if the country tolerates It I shall be mistaken. In all the bills before this committee, not one calls for an appro priation of money. So that there can be no excuse for the action of the Com mittee on Rules, except it is to trample upon the laboring, classes of this coun try and ignore all the laws pasted, or to be passed, for their tieneflt.

From m mt4ipM Frmina Tttrgmph (TntrrenmM mpubriron). The Senate on Satnrday passerl both m Senator Fryc'i shipping Wlla. The o gives a btranly to th Anwrrenn owners of Amertenn-rntUt ships: the other provides for the payment on an extraordinary liberal wnhs for the car tying of the 1'nHed Ftfttes mnlla. The now go to the Honte, which will pmmitly pass them unless It stultifies Its thus far wholly consistent recor I of looting the Treasury for the benefit of a small class of honest trwlesmen. Thit It la most unlikely to do, as It mut he conceded that In taking the public moneys of the taxpayers for the RXntilVK nKKF.EIToF IHniVIDITtt.S the House lias been most consistent. There were hopes, not ureal ones, en tertained by the wiser, better class of Republicans that the Senale would pre vent tbe consummation of these wholly indefensible raids upon the Treasury, which have been condemned In advance by tbe merchants of nearly every prin cipal port in the country; but this Con gress, having scattered the surplus, ts evidently also determined to make the dificlt as large as possible, and chlerly for the advantage of persons or classes. Those who depended upon the Senate to stop the I.OOTtNO OP TUB TUKASt'ltT did not understand how entirely that business was to be made the policy of the majority of both the House and Senate The latter has showed them thtlr mistake. Kvcry American built and owned vessel, sail or stoem, em ployed in the foreign trade Is tn receive from Hie National Treasury 15 cents a ton for the first and second 1100 miles sailed, both outwanl and Inward, and 30 cents a t,m for every mile sailed over 1,000. This is to continue for ten years, after which time the rate per ton Is to be 28 cents. This is a subsidy or Iwunly bill pure and simple, and "there was m more rcssrn for lis passage than there would have been for the pasengo of another giving a bounty to every railway car, or to every cart or whcolbarrow going a certain distance. In tho case of the ships the bounty begins to run if the voyngo Is no longer thin seventy miles. TUB Al.I.KOKD JtOTIVK for the bill Is that of restoring Amer 5n commerce to the seas. The real motive Is that of insuring certain profits to ship builders and ship-owners who want to embark, at the country's ex pense, In the ocean-carrying I rude. The bill Is In absolute keeping with the c1rs coddling policy which has been so characteristic of the present Comrress, and which has already exhausted the surplus and prepared for n deficit which will probably render necessary Sena'or Ingalls' proposed relmpoalilon of the stamp and Income taxes of war times. It did not matter a whit to the J0nnt.NO STATKSSIKN OV THK RKXATR, who had retolvid to pass the Krye bills, that thu experiment of granting subtidks to American ocean goto'; ships, for the purpose of restoring our commerce on the high seas, had been faithfully tried and bad signally fulled. It was in vain that Senator Vest showed that, bawecu 18-18 and 1878, thu Gov ernment had given 21,000,000 for the same purpose without success, and that after that great sum had been paid to THE CODDLIUI SUlf OWSEHH, tbe commerce was, In tbe language of Senator Fryc, dead as n door nail. This Is a Congress of subsidy and bounty job bers, and the .Ship Subsidy bills are only parts of the policy of looting the Treasury, a policy represented by the McKlnley bill, the Dependent Pension bill and tbe Niver bill, which finally passed the House on Saturday. Sblpe that tbe Government keeps afloat with bounty bladders are likely to continue to float; but wny should the whole country be taxed for these ship subsidy bladders? Why should ship builders and ship-owners or silver mine owners be given assured profits out of the public Treasury, and not everybody else as well? Let it be admitted that the subsidies will restore our commerce, they arc still indefensible, because the some desirable results would nave been more quickly and certainly obtained by tbe repeal of OUK Sl'ICIIUL NAVIGATION I.AWS, wblcb prohibit American merchants buying their ships in the cheaper mar kets In which their successful rivals buy theirs. Tbe American merchant baa never vet failed, If given an equal chance with bis competitors. Under the navigation laws be bos no chance. They absolutely prohibit him going Into the shipping business as tbe owner of an American ship. Those who have gone Into It as tbe owners of foreign ships, though denied tbe right of an American register, or to carry tbe American flag, are competing success fully with their alien rivals, awl they could and would, no doubt, drive tbew largely from the foreign trade of the United States, if they were allowed VBBK SHIPK, which ic all the advantage they ask for. Mainly, Senator Frye's Ship Subsidy bills are for the bewdit of shipbuilders, who aM to beeowe shipowners or tbe Mortgagors of shipowners. As the Triifntph wu so often shown, not a single skip has been built for tho trans atlantlc trade for fifteen years, aad not a half dozen for thirty five years. Kot a dollar of capital is now invested ia the lulldiag of skips for the tranastlanrlc trad, not a dollar of waxes paid to any work wan for building ship for it; but it is a trade which Conareas proposes to create by insuring idupbullders and shipowners profits by paying their profits out of the Treasury. THK POSTAL JKR STY SIIX hi of tave annuo sort, being ia djigreo Qsdy leas objeitiouaift. Ship should wtf be noU bounties for any service. They should be, kowevw, woat liberally aad dirctly paid for carrying tap week, lust as ateaw lars aau slsjte coadssm axe paid for carrying Use ytffff ydaad. That is the policy of VifHi' aad of all otmer countries, aad itki good oa, at It has bout proved.

It was my good fortune to witness ft very pretty snd graceful little ceremony In cmntctlon with these distinctions, When a young and beautiful brhle ar rived, who, within the last fe months, had become a dnrhess. This was her first appearance as such at a conrt ball, and she was making her way dlffl lently toward the position to which her nt wly acquired rank entitled her when the wbote of the duchesses present rose ritnnltawously to greet their sister peeress and to receive her Into their circle. What makes the court ball so well worth seeing Is the fact that almost everybody In the room has some well grounded claim to distinction. My own, I will admit, was but retlected. lustre, ami I enteral paradise under the wing of others, like the rest ot the debutantes, lint these others repre scnted nil that Is most notable and prominent In London. Social rank of all the higher grades was fully repre sented, wealth, where It was associated nlih meritorious money getting, distin guished service to the Stale and high professional repute. Nothing proved this better than the brilliant display of decorations, the constellations of stars, crosses and medals, all attesting the presence of every decfee of merit and every form of celebrity. Little less distinguished, but from extreme contrast was the plain, almost homely, black dress suit of the American .Minister, who, of course, wore no decorations whatever. He was tbe only man there thus simply attired, the type of n groat ropubllc, which acknowledges no kind of dis tinction but that of personal merit, and, perhaps, thinks moro of such baubles than the most aristocratic nation In the world. NICE LAW POINTS. YVlint Cnmn nf Itprnrinlns the ota Doctors' Commons, '( em Mr Contttrpornnt Nttltte. About five nnd twonty years ago Par liament decided on roformlng the old courts whlctt were known collectively as Doctors' Commons. In these co.irs a tytti-m of law, mainly derived frjm tho civil code, was administered, und the practitioners In these courts were known as advocates and proctors. Hie analoguos of barristers and solicitors. Now. tho changes In tbe adinluWtr lion of law whlcu Parliament had re Kolvtdon airectlng, and the newliw which It bad determined ou enacilng. ft etc curtain to Increase tho bushiest nf lliciu who were engage as advociles and proctors, and in no sone whatever, nctual or prospective, was these people's livelihood from their calling liable to curtailment. Rut Parliament, lod by the precedents of unjust and superflu ous compensations to Interests which no ingenuity could declare to be vested, screed to glvo these people compensa tion, opparenlly because It bad Im proved tholr position. 1 be examination of their position led to a singular result. Tbey put In enor mous claims, and thu Commissioners, one cf whom was my Informant, wore ngbait nt thu liabilities which Parlia ment bad sanctioned. Rut an asttito member of the board buthought him tulf of comparing the claims of profits made under the old system with the in come tax returns which these honest people bad made. The discrepancy was enormous, nnd the unpaid and un declared liabilities which were dis closed, still due from them, went n great way toward clearing off the liabilities with which the thoughtless and unwarrantable generosity of Parlia ment bad burdened tho exchequer. Tbe Income lax Ib a very bad tax and not even the ingenuity of Mr. Gladstone has been able to discover a decent apology for It. Rut on this occasion it did a valuable Indirect service, for it neutralized to a considerable extent no act of folly and consequent fraud. I do not think that the compensation to tbe advocates and proctors would ever have been seriously proposed If It had not been the case that still more Inde fensible compensations were given in tbe acts for abolishing heritable juris dictions in Scotland and for carrying the Irish Union. I am persuaded that, if one were to extend tbe practice into cases infinitely more defensible than those which I have quoted, not only would necessary reforms be arrested, but tbe taxpayer would be overwhelmed with the burdens which Parliament, having regard to consistency, would impose. Rut It Is only what Juvenal calls the chicks of the white hen who get these supeifluous favors. Oaruet-IlageersTake Wurnlnc J-'ram th louiieUU Ttm4.
