makeiitcry good Minister to Japan, and
doulitlcss would liko tho job. Ho would
not havo anything to do except pursue
those literary studies of which ho Is so

Mr. Ingalls lias got both n touguo nud a

of keeping tho rust off both. Ho
has mndo souio speeches in the
Scnato which wcro calculated to make
Mr, Harrison wince, so pointedly nnd
siucastlcally did they refer to tho Presi

Mr. lltatuo will, It Is thought, endeavor to

Lord Salisbury lias embodied, but
whether ho is or not successful
In that effort arbitration will
ensue. Tin: C'iiitio rcpoitor to-day spoku
