Such Interference, he thought, would also prove defetructlvo of Individual responslhdity and ot tho fcollnR of Inde pendence, nnd would replaco by State nurs Ice tho natural law of ielf-piesorvatlon. It Is ft practical comment on those theories of a man of bcIoiico that a majority of tho mlncr delegates to tho Trado Union Con Kress, shortly to bo held In Great Britain, havo bnen Instructed to vote against a lccls latlvo elRht-hour day. Tho Vacancy on the Inter-State Com merce Commission. Tho late Gen. WAi.rr.n It. Biiaco of Ala bama was cno of tho ablost and most useful members of tho Int'.-r-Stale Commcice Com mlsston. Ho was thu Southern representa tive la tho Commission, and it socms to bo generally eipectcd that the 1'resident will appoint n Southern man to Bucced him. Several names' havo been mentioned for tho succession, umoug them those of Gen. Sam n:r, D. Maxkv, I'.eproscntntlvo David B. CuMir.iisoN, es-Attorney-Ueueral Garland, and e-SenatorllUAGAN. Of nil these centleraen the raost capable is Gen. ilii-EY. Ho is tho best equipped to i (ally sorvo tl:o ends of the Commission; and ho is besides a man of hlsh probity and cnlUhlenment. in borne respects, however, o::-Sonator Heujan, now serving upon tho ltalltoad Commission of the Stato of Texas, would bo nu ideul aiipolntment. If tho Com mlsblon is to be composed of men of fair abilities and i;ood principles, willing to work for tho salary of 57,100 which attaches to thcoCice, it is only icasonabio to ptCsUmc that it will oaduie. Commissioner William It. Mor.r.isoN of Illinois ij the only wemU'r v.ho lias operated thoCommtssionaa politi cal ma")iine, but his excursioiis niuou tlio lallioad schedules in pursuitof thu farmcis' oto have duno no particular harm. The other members aie erccelloiit gentlemen, all lawyers of respectability, to whom $7,300 per annum is not unwelcome, and who are content to work diligently and lndustii ousiy at tho depreciation of railroad prop erty nt.d keen out of tho pitfalls toward which the ptivateurnbitionsof the Hon. 3Ir. Morrison are constantly leading them. It ox-Senator Itnciy, however, should bo railed to !11 tho ptesent neancy, he would be likely in n very sliott time to bring nbout the abolishment of the Commission. Ho hold, piaetieally, that nil the lailrond prop riliesiutlio couutiy should bo confiscated by the farmers and by such other persons as may desire to transport goods or travel by rail. I'lom his point of view, when ho was lu tho Senate, tho Inter-State Commerce net wa a falluio in just bo much as it fallei to accomplish such confiscation. Slnco hli return to Texas nnd h!3 ap pointment to a seat on Its Itailroad Com misfciou lie ha given evidonco o( his eln reiity by striking at th1 general romrcerco nnd wellaie of his State tome of tho haidest blows sho has over had to endure.

There Is no Statu in tho I'nion tint needs lnllroad development s mue.'i as Texas and no oilier that bliows ho little. The leisou is tiiat foreign capita, will not rntute there. Thete is no uso In building milroads that a Texas Itailroad Commission may conllseate th"m. 'iiio people of TcMiJ are now fully allvo to theo fact', and they ecij the necessity of :it onco adopting an other attitude. Lawmaking is a dangerous thing, but when the mlmlni'-trnlluii oren foieo'iient of a Kid ni-il oppies-lvo law is ln triiotrd to ai: unprincipled demagogue or desperate lgnoi.imus, then there is likely to Kuan tally lepeil of it. lti'i;AN'a appointment to tlio vacancy oeeiifIo:.r! by the death of Gen.

Many mai wllous schemes nrepcetldng bo nei.tii the liroad hath of visionary Wo-tern crank to enhanc) tlm irtyetyol nations at tho WorM'fi I'alr. One of the most eharac-teii-tii! has just leapt fu'.i Hedged from the teem nj; br.iin of A ii.liam II. I'klis of Ka'i ias, who uilveitiu? " liie iloating edillce, Queen Is'ibell.i's 'Ilwiu'ie," at Chleago, to bo erected in 1FJ2-3 at a cost ot $2,100,000, nnd who has p.iblMicd " Itomancle, a Itomanre," for pioduetit n at thlu th'-at i oof his dream. William II. I'.i:ltm has diieomed tlio oppor tunity of ages anil I. ns promptly peZC(i n by the f'.reluih.

Wlthdefeicntl.il wonder wo turn the pages that may bo piegnant with fnto, with the bln-oniii of the centuiy plant of American literature, with tho splendor and potency of n really national drama. Here, If anywhere, may wo hope to find tho truo lesson of do liioeiacy, the ample charity of tho oceanic pudrrs, tlio promise and prophecy that Ameiii'iilsever binglng tlren-llko to effete and starving Europe. Veryrloto to iictuil human llo will sueh n drama be, without tho conventional mysterh's of tlio old p aywrights, witliont the tra ditional gnomes aud fnliie.s, knlghtn and dukes easties and dungeons ot thu Old Wi i!d, without imrossiblo monologues nnd prrpciterous imprecations, without tlio titngo ndting of Aivadiiinr liohrmla, with out the Itnrrted phrnwology and the minc ing, Imllnibt language of tho imitators of the Etiibethan dramatists, certainly without blank ven-e, piobnbly witliout acts, and If with any plot, then with such plot only ns rrsulLs necessailly from tho natural Interplay of human characters liko those wo know, guided by tho underlying nnd the DMirarchlng influences of time nnd I'lieumstance, of sky ind country, raeo and prreonality that keep our brown, apple bloseomod earth whirling over through the I kaleidoscopic changes of f rnlty. I inii won. i bo a natural expectation. "Itomancle," however alvw?, perhaps that It Is not well loundtd. aim dcdlcntlen to I "my Bwccthcnrt," with its "sweet love," "pretty gill." "my darling," "idolized," and such endearing terms, may 1 passod over as Illustrating a ph60of loveslekness peculiar to Kansas; but Kansas surely never suggested, .with tho exception of Pop eyed Pete, tho names of tho participants lu tho drama Nomancle, Ivano. llcfola, Dainty, Noma. Trrrol, Meger. Dona (or Top-eycrl Tctei, Uandoska, Sollandrook, I!ru3so, Moroi o, Hoonoolun, Oolda, and tho nymphs, pprltes, elves, fairies, naiads, nnd gentry. Iho Duchy of Goldn, where tho playoiens, Is not known to geographers, but It ccttnlLly docb not lio between tho Missis sippi and tho Pacific. Tho dungeon of Un dczeruno Palace Is equally remoto from Chicago, and so ts tho palaco of Brusso, tho queen of oc '.'in, whero tbo dwells with elves nnd Imps and nymphs, who sing, "Cling! clang! cling I Hero wo bo I Ho, ha, ho! Dim! bom! blra!" Tho ltlng of tho land, Sollandrock, Is llke wleo unknown to history or mythology. Tlio conversation of theso strungo bolngs Is, perhaps, Western In Its emphasis, but not quite ehaiacterUtle even of Porkopolis. iioiia.ulrocli r.olciiEo mo! Damn you! damn you! damn you! damn you! Urusae Be patient! darling! darling! darling! dar ling! Hoonoclun How many soraersaulta does It icqulre, O mighty monarch of earth's bulled file, flora this cool surface, to tho central 6pot whoro Is no cold, nnd even tho ieo Is hot? Soilandrock My hate will burn yon when I'm freo again, lteloasc me, or I'll qunko this orWd world with B'tch terrlllo vigor, rent In shatters 'twill wander, broken fragments, through the air." The ono local touch that Is discov erable, and this is possibly a novelty In poetry of such high ambition. Is that " papa " nnd "mamma" nro apparently pronounced "popper" and "niominer." which is. wo be lieve, good Chicagoeso. Witness theso lines of anettionate slmplioity, "But you're the only papa I havo had, and Mamma Yaetl was my only mamma." These few icferences, perhaps, Justify the conclusion that If William B. Felts Intended to present an Ideal specimen of a national American drama at "tho Moating edifice" of Queen Isabella nt tlio World's Pair, ho was not wholly wiso in following blindly such gemsof dramatic art as Gorr's "Paging Turk" nnd Caeey's "Chronon-hoton-thologof." " Itomancio" lacks novel ty as well as local color. Some phrases would also by excised by any Chicago officer who should perform tin delicato und mal odorousduties of Anthony Comstuck. That such would bo the cuso Is, perhaps, a proof of tho seriousness of William B.'s effort. Tho possibility of a national drama Is. Iiowovei, extremely dubious and remoto when even a crank from Texas, or, to use a euphemism from tho discreet Atlantic, a Western " social motor," can perpetratesucu a tiling as "Itomancio" for international delectation nnd applause at tho World's Pair. Tlio final moral may bo that the wide and woolly West is still widely and woolllly mmantic In matters literary, and a slave still to litcinry conventions and fictions of medl ti'v.il P.urope, nnd that the work ot emanci pation w hich commenced with the French devolution is only now beginning nnd may not Ik; completed beforo tho millennium.

The heedicsi aud tho Inexpert in oracles make vain attempts to guess what shape the calamity may take.

Jones must boi be bought, and cannot bo found in bolts and Illinois of bolts and hybridnomluatlouB. Wooroin a position to declare with au thorliy what tho calamity will be. Gen.

Hut they nro urging him, and most iirr.vi-i-ly and even wickedly urging him, to have 1 is inoustnehi-s shaved off clean as a tt'.itiiuuiiy against the Democracy In cose it doesn't nominate him for Governor. Tho ir.ii.t pletiirebque figure in the Democratlo party of Now York would thus bo Bhorn of lt- beauty ami distinction. The Democracy of New Yolk, whi'di has long nestled in tho guileful hliado of those marvellous mtis tnclilos, would bo left without shelter and bcie.'t of its mott glorious landmaik. Wo believe that this calamity can bo averted. It will bo impossible for tho Democrats to nominate more than ono man, and Gen. Jones may not he tho man. Suppose ho Isn't. Many men havo held tho post of Gov ernor of Now York, but whcieln New York or miywherir else on this oblate spheroid Is thore another full cot of moustaches liko Gen. Jones's ? To counsel III in to destroy them Is to recommend a crime against the laws of rosthotics. Nominated or not nomi nated, Gou. Jones should nurse those per fect and prodigious whiskers.

Tho only question is whether the Republican Interost in literary politics Is HUlllcient to Justify Mr. White in coining out of his library. Mr. ltix-KF.it is an amiable and a Eucecssrul iirni, wlio" bie-lucss Is wet goods, Tlio gcntli-imn whu whipped it up three yeaisogo for MiLi.rji aud hluh llconso muot therefore bo deeply Interested in tho fortuues of Mr. Bkckeh's candidacy, i h it candidacy would appeal to some Inter ests that Mr. White's would find cold and unresponsive. Mr. White knows a good deal about what ho calls tho warfare betwoen religion and science, but what docs ho know nbout the warfare of Cowie ond the Wicked Gmns or the struggles In do rift' and do Ate'? He has read a good deal about Gam Lr.o, but his ignorance about tho Repub licans below Fourteenth street is great nnd sad. Does ho know how much Mr. Jon.v PnocTois CLAnKE's committee of Twenty first district Republicans think M civil service reform ? Of what use wl'l ids knowledge ot Giordano Buuno and Nick Corc.u Xicus be to him when ho comes to face tho Joni" J. O'BniES Association nnd the Hon. JonN Eliot Bhodjky ? How will ho Interest tho Hon. J.vcon Moses Patterson and tho Hon. Solon BnisiDis Suirn In AvninoES and Avicenna? Wlint do the patriots ot tho Business Men's Republican Association caro for his excursuses Into Bcicnco or his collection of books relating to tho French revolution? In the languago ot tho candid Republican loaders ot this town, ho U a Jny; and they never can bo made to take him for an eaglo, Mr. Becker, on the contrary, ia delight fully unlltcrary. Ho has human qualit'os that recommend him to the boys. Hols more Interested in tho warfare of tho Prohibition ists against alcohol than In tho warfare of religion and science. Ho has P.rlo county at his back, and Erie county Is ot somowhat' moro Importance In politics than the faculty of Cornell University. Of tho two willing Republican statosmon, tho Buffalo man seems to have the advantage. Mr. White Is a nice man, but the post of President ot tho Board of Regents Is moro suited to his temperament than that of Governor. The ('ingress ot Brazil lias not thus far justified tho hopes of the friends of the rotmg republic. The now Constitution nf the country Is well constructed: the President Is a serious nnd acAonipllsbad statesman: hs hasnoenrad the service ot several oorocttent Cabinet oft) cers. and many of the members o( Coaereis are able and patrlotio politicians. Yet. during the three months that have rasstd tlnce tho oDenlngof the first Congress elected under the Constitution, there his been hardly any ot the legislation that Is needed by the ouctry. Tim has leen wasted in acrimonious ilobnte : rival factions have wasted their strength In lighting or thwarting ench other, and sre:u latlvo scheme Involving t.Hvnt Intercom havo taksn precedence over publlo business ot serious Importance, to the cutiatn. The new renubllo h&s beau well suotalned for iiro years by tbe l!r.illlan reople: the Coagrei'S elected by the beon'a will inaLe a grievous mistake by weakeuinz public confi dence In it. Unlets there be an Improvement In th con duct ot Congress, we shall probably hear ot the reslcnatlou ot President Di Pokseca. The Canadian provinces, like the American States, ar rejoicing over unprecedented har vests of (train this year, and especially over the fact that the export ot wheat from Canaiia will be more than twice as treat a it was last year. We congratulate our Canadian neighbor. The final failure nnd breaking tip of Mrs. F.VA Mann's theatrical company at Snamoktn. Pa., is another proof, if any were needed, ot the Inherent good sense and decency of the peoplo. As was said very generally n lien 'The Clemencenu Case" failed to draw anywhere after few nlslits the exi acted crowds, a play cannot be successful la this country that ap paala solely to tba indecent and the vulsar minded. It seems now to be also certain that there are very few pe-sons who will ray even a small sum to see the most notorious of aban doned women act. if she acts badly. Managers have been deceive i In this mat ter la tho past, perhaps, because of the large sates of late years of worthless book ot erotic fiction. But many things are done In private by iadlviduals that tbay would not dare to do In public, and except for a mad king of Ba varia a play Is not slven for an audience ot one. The oatrana of Eva Mann will now be burlad fororsr with her infamous play, and tomo playwrights and such women as she I will ia future respect the public, and keep a discreet silence. The papers of the various countries of Europe have within the cast month published many reports of the abundance of the grain crops of tho United States: and we have now been made aware of the fact that the publication of these reports has cireu new visor to tha desire to emigrate to this country that Is widespread anions tha masses ot several European nations. It is almost Impossible for people who are suf fering, or who dread the approach of suf ferine:, by reason ot poor harvests In their own lands, to hear of our American harvests without foellng Impelled to fly to tbe land ot plenty ; and this impulse has rocently been al most ovcrvrhelmlnr in toe minds of millions. If all the Italian and Itusslan and Austrian and German and British peoplo who are now anxious to erost the ocean to this country had the means neoded to do so, wo should see an immigration to our ports vastly greater than any ever seen In past times.

Had tbe victim been a British Colum bian schooner tba affair might have become (till mora Important, since Grant Brltnln might contest a right ot capture which any Government under Its own doetrlno nnd prac tice would have to concede. But tho incident may lead to tha disclosure ot Russia's vlovrs upon tho llehrlne Sea dispute, nnd also to her participation In the motlui ritwdi ngrcerr.ou. or, at least.

But oil the ptevious occasions there has been soma vagueness ia the Klateuienis as io thu clr uuilnnces andre fciilis of the alleged seizures, which have made them of minor Importance. In the present In stance, how over, tho Mgnlfhant fact is that the capture, was eertalnb enacted many miles anav Irom that marine leamie from the Cop per IslamM which would ordlnatily limit Bus sfuu jiirisdlctlon.ex'.'ept on tho assumption that the lidbrinir t-ea K a cloned sea. Here, asata. the significance of the seizure may bo a little clouded b tbe fact thai i-ome of the vessels that ran pvvay had been robbinu tho Islands, and lommlttlng the very gtave olTeuce of violating llussi.in territory, llunce the act ot tbe crul-er may possibly be ba-ed mi the rlalit which somo publlch-t admit, of pur-iuingn gross violator of the jaw across iho threo-mile limit into the high 6oa-. Accordingly It may not be an absolutely cer ta'n Inference from this particular act that Russia utlll asserts fOTrelBnty over tho west ern halt of Behring Sea. That she onco made tha' assertion is well known, and she has nevor Indicated any renunciation of her claim : yet It Is notlceatile that she hit hitherto been con tent simply to police the Copper Inland i. aad has not had her war ships crulslni: scores of miles from her mainland and Islands, and there arresting sealing schooneis. as our revenue cutters have done on tbe eastern side of the sea. Even in this present case of tbe I.orvlsit Is shown that ihe soallng schooners were not molested in tbnir positions close In upon tha Copper Islands, until they had ac tually Inniiad on them. Still, the legal proceedings or the diplomatfo reinitiation In the case of tho Lewis may develop Russia's real position on the Uehrlnc bea question. Every motive of self-interest in tlalmlnir tba most possible for herself; of insllncilvo sympathy la siding with our coun try ncutnst England, her rival In aegrnndlze ment: finally, of loyalty In atandlng by tba full purport of the treaty of lrif,7. would apparently prompt ber to adopt.
