'e conviction under which soma chose the fo j . :,; McKlnlev ticket rather than the Bryan ? ! '.' ' "" ticket were feeble at the best, and liable to h f be overridden by the addition of any trivial C . ,. dissatisfaction against the honest money .' . v . party or against any division of It. Some ' were of the philosophy that would resent li ' ; I the failure of nroanerltv to bloom before II, i the passago of a single measure by the HE' I . newly elected party. Doubtless the lm- H Jl ' pulses of many are fitful and Incapable j J , of lasting from one annual contest to '. '. tho other. On tho other hand, there t i ', will bo many voters for whom last !il year the old Democratic ties were strong r. ( s, enough to overpower tho feeling that tho "I j fundamental principles of Democracy, as Ik I. ' they had been handed down to them, had II l t been snuffed out at Chicago, and upon the "'" ,' next occasion these may bo expected to see A W. :'. that their placo Is with tho Republicans S i , v until the Chicago platform Is formally re- b ' ranted. The year 1807 should tell us more $ ', , than we know now as to how much of the ? - anti-populism vote of 1800 was solid and i ; hnw much emotional and accidental. It Mj- ; will devolve upon the stalwarts, who are WKb , In the habit of picking their colors with mr cure, and who then standby them unfllnch- mm, ingly, to see that the next antl-repudlatlon lip ' ; vote Is as powerful as it can be made. If I Hut Sir. Levey gives an instructive ex- K ; ' plnnation of the change which he prophe- (stet hii friends will make from the party j -( of McKiNLKYtothatofDnYAi. Theadmin- Bfl i ij lit rat Ion of New York city will be responai- HB ' n blc for a part of It, but the far greater cause Urn . .' will be the Republican administration of Bf ' f the Kmpirc State. The municipal question HI S ,' doesn't affect Mr. Levey and his friends to any great degree, and non-partisanship not Hlf H : at all. Wo advise Mr. Levey that the great H fj question for all voters here next fall will not I j be 'er York city nor New York State, bnt H j ' gold against silver, honest money against H a repudiation, and against the virulent spirit I j which animates the so-called Democratic H ra, i platform of the day. B J M '' The Herald Ice Fund. H j ' Wo have observed from time to time In jH if the columns of our esteemed and brilliant 'B it contemporary, the Herald, certain diffident la , II and hesitating references to an Ice Fund. JS ; '. I' Hcems that In our hot summer weather i 9.' tho worthy Herald bestirs itself to dls- H '- (I tribute Ice among the poor; and In Its edl- HK (I tton of yesterday it says that it received HB ji last year from the charitable public no less HB I than ?1 5,000 for that purpose. BB The Herald draws a very touching plc- jBl ' tnre of the operations of this charity: K v "The demand for thla Ice on the part of the poor SK - waa wild and almost fierce, for thej were deeperaU. ' Hj ' f Thej had. many of them, alck children at home, and jH I thej had no money. At each atatlon. and there were SB j nltirnatatlons during the hottest period, three hun- M I dred persona were dally supplied." S, ' t ' In July and August last the Herald aays U I that It distributed forty tons of ice per day, MM p or two hundred and eighty tons each week, IB I costing $2,800 for the full period of ten Bj T.' ' weeks of the heated term. The Herald now Bj E ' calls on the public to send in subscriptions H , h to buy more lee for the approaching hot Bl ' I weather, and It expresses the confident be- Bl ,11, llet that the forthcoming donations will K ft- largely exceed those of last year. B :.f E; The powerful influence which the Herald BM ' ! ' exerts upon the Ice Companies, beginning flS . Eii at a regular date every spring, enables It to Bj ' F. puichasu this ice for a dollar a ton. The & , Herald, according to Its own statements, BH it jh distributed In all about two thousand eight HBj .' y. hundred tons last year, which at a dollar a HB W, ton amounted to $2,800, leaving to be ac- Bfl , y counted for, of tho $15,000 subscribed by BBJ 1 the public, the sum of $12,200 remaining Bg ' I in the hands of tho Herald, as the result of BJ its philanthropic transaction. BM Ii Now we would respectfully suggest to B '' 1 8 Mr. .Tajiks Gohdon Bdnnctt of Paris, that ,BM g Ha in view of the very hot summer which Is 'BM i fi I predicted, he should arrange to distribute jBM Ii I1 a Iittlo more ice. It would be graceful to ' BM ,' V, allow the quantity that reaches the poor to , BM f display a less striking discrepancy with the -jfll ij amount of money contributed by the chart- -BM (.' table public. If he was buying the Ice out 'MJ ' ' ' his own pocket, it would be a different iBji'.jjf thing. That would be a matter of personal . !pMj '' W , and genu I no beneficence, but as he Is not BJ i'jp , engaged in any pursuit of that kind, but la , jBt 'lf( merely securing a free advertisement for , 'jBJ :75i '' his paper through the donations of charito- ' BJ l blc people, we really think he ought to take "' BJ J if a more liberal view of the situation. i BJ J' It Is not as It he offered to defray the cost ' MJ dU' of distributing the Ice that good people are 'l MB $ I' , willing to pay for. It is something entirely ' BMjti different. He constitutes himself the self. ; Hj.S' appointed trustee of a fund which should be ; BBpBj ' sacred as the gift of charity. How much of : jBBgK it docs ho finally keep as bis own profits f 'iWk I! V 5 i , White Wings Furled. B ' J ' Col. (ii:onoc E. WAniNo, Jr., is now fre- BJ '. quently mentioned by the neophytes of non- 'Bf ij partisanship as tho most senseless and fit BM ''J candidate for Mayor of New York on the i MB Q (loose ticket. Col.

Txrad and long-continued ap plause. An hour later Col. WAniNO was asked to address the brethren : " tie said be had no Idea when he came to the meet ing of what was to be said. The fact that be aeemed to be Included In the list of candidates put him In a fUe position, and he had to becartf ul. Mam not a candidate for Mayor and shall not be a candidate,' he declared. The declaraUon was recelred with alienee. ne said be had coma to New York for a specific pur pose, lie had beUered and had determined to proTS that the streets of this great dty could be cleaned) that,the men who cleaned them could be cleaned, and that the reputations of those men, which had been anything but sarory, could also be made clean, no knew If be was nominated for Mayor by the Cltl sene Union that kevouM UUft. Ho hoped by ju dicious conduct to be able to carry out his purposes. " I wUI try to dodge along the hedgerows,' he said, so that Tammany when It comes In will say: "Well, thla fellow hasn't don anything very bad, and has done some good, and we will let him bold on." I am keeping out now for the sake of keeping In here after."' It la clear from these remarks of Col. Wahino that he Is satisfied to bo allowed to clean the streets, and has no ambition to clean the oxtonslve establishment which Is technically called, for campaign purposes, " tho Augean stables." Even If he want to be Mayor, he knows that as a candidate for thnt offlco under the management of the impossible Citizens' Union, he or anybody elso, born of woman, would ba "left." Col. Waiuno Is not without his moments of crankiness, but he is essentially a clear headed and practical chap. Consequently he appreciates thoroughly the futility of the Cltlsens' Union. Tho Even Temperature of Joe Blaok bnrn. Ever since last summer the Hon. Joseph Clay Stiles Blackuurn has been de nouncing thoso Democrats who refused to vote for Buy an last year. Mr. Blackburn Is one of tho most gifted denouncers In Kentucky, and his volume of denunciation cannot be exceeded by any other producer In the world. His vocabulary Is not re markably large, but as he uses the whole of It most of tho time, and as It Is always pip ing hot, it effect In the way of roar and sizzlo is out of proportion to its size. His favorite remark about the Buckner and tho McKlnley Democrats is that Sheol is full of better men than they. There Is a sort of theological air about this which makes It specially acceptable to Mr. Blackburn, and he has repeated It with unessential modifications at various times. Indeed, Col. Jack Cuinn, who is not without dis tinction as a student of incandescent invec tive, regards his chiefs comparison of the inhabitants of Sheol with tho anti-Bryan Democrats, to the disadvantage of the lat ter, as a masterpleco of Indignant eloquence, warming, grateful, and filling. At the Kentucky Popocratic Convention lost week Mr. Blackburn had a fine spasm of language, and this time he left Sheol out, andwarmedhlmselfby hlsown fires. Speak ing of the gold Democrats, he said : "The guulotlne and the gallows are the proper ret ribntlon for the traitors to the party. " Some persons regard these words as some what rash and anarchical, but connoisseurs and Joe Blackburn will see in them a comforting evidence that political disap pointment has not banked his fires. His temperature Is even. He is not colder than he was, and warmer he cannot be. The way in which he ahot thoso two g's, guillo tine and gallows, at the traitors must have been tremendous. What must be tho pride of the Kentucky Fopocrats In a statesman, orator, and rare occasional thinker llko Joe Blackburn 1 In bis own alliterative man ner he may be described as speaking dirks, drakes, and daggers, " minions, monkeys, and murderers." And he Is always just so. He never cools. Strange that In so gigantic chambers of mind, tho heat should be so evenly distributed. The Showor of Stars. The application of Gen. Mizner for re tirement on the ground of length of ser vice, thereby leaving a vacancy which will doubtless be filled by the advancement of Col. Merriam, Is tho latest, although we will not yet say the last, step In an extraor dinary series of promotions. Tho nucleus out of which so many changes have been evolved thus far was the retire ment of Gen. Thomas II. Ruoer for age about two months ago, thereby opening a promotion of one Brigadier to be a Major General and one Colonel to be a Brigadier. It was well understood that the senior officer in each of these grades would sooner or later be advanced. But the opportunity was seized to confer the stars also on many other officers, under certain concerted ar rangements. To begin with, Gen. Frank Wiieatow, the second highest in the grade of Brlga-dler-Gcneral, was to bo retired for age less than six weeks after Gen. Ruoer, and so most properly that excellent officer was passed over the head of Gen. .Torra R. Brooke, the senior In the grade, to the va cancy of Major-Gcneral. Then, when Gen. Wiieaton was retired for age, on May 8, another worthy Briga dier, Gen. James W. Forsyth, fourth on tho list, was jumped over Gen. Brooke, with the understanding that, as soon as he was confirmed as Major-General, he would apply for retirement; and this plan was strictly carried out. Next, on Gen. Forsyth's retirement, still another Brigadier, Gon. Z. 11. Blisa, the fifth on tho list, vaulted over the patient Bhouldent of Gen. Brooke, under a like understanding, and that, too, was faith fully carried out, Gen. Bliss applying for retirement under the law relating to forty years' service, having had ono day on tho active list as Major-General. Then, at lost, Gen. Brooke came to the front, and was made Major-General, as It had been decided from tho start that he should be. Thus four out of the six Briga diers received promotions. And since Gen. Forsyth's ago retirement was due next year, and Gen. Bliss's year after next, whereas Gen. Brooku'b does not come until 1002, neither would have had promotion In prospect without that arrangement; for of the two senior Major-Generals, Gen, Miles does not retire for age until 1003, and Gen. MEnnirr not until 1U00. It was suggested and, Indeed, urged at one time to take a fifth Brigadier into this convenient arrangement, Gen. J. J. Cop. pinoer; but It was pointed out that he had received his star only about two years ago, jumping a large number of Colonels at that. So the mark was drawn there, al though be retires in 1800, or before any of his present seniors. As to Gen. E. S, Oris, the remaining Brigadier of the six when the movements began, he does not retire until 1002, and, of course, has a chance at the double star when Gen. Merritt retires. So much for the Brigadiers ; and now let us follow tho fortunes of the Colonels. The senior, Col.W. H. Siiavter, First Infantry, who had on several similar occasions lx.cn passed by, waa Tatsed 'to 'tho original vacancy among the Brigadiers caused by tho first retirement, that of Gen. Ruoer, with the resulting promotion of Gen. Wiieaton. But the successive promotions of Gens. Forsyth, Buss and Brooke caused three other vacancies. Tho senior Colonel was Cot IT. C. Merriam, Seventh Infantry, and It was arranged to promote also tho senior cavalry Colonel, Col. J. F. Wade, Fifth Cavalry, and the senior artil lery Colonel, Col.W. M. GnAnAU, Fifth Ar tillery, thus giving ono star to each arm. Wo set forth some time ago the special claims of tho artillery to ono of the stars, and the event shows that the considerations then presented were well founded. But it was determined that before Ool. Merriam, who retires only In 1001, received his appoint ment, the stars should first bo awarded to Col. J. K. Mizner, Tonth Cavalry, who, besides being fifth Colonel, we think, tn relative rank, retires next year, or before any of his seniors. Thus tho nominations sent in proved to be those of Col. Wade, Col. Mizner, and Col. Graham ; and then, Immediately on hla confirmation, Gen. Mizner applied for retirement, on account of thirty years' service, so opening tho way to the appointment of Col. Mkrriau as Brigadier-General, which will undoubtedly occur this weak. Such Is the remarkable distribution of stars which has already oooorred, and It la worth reviewing as something quite sur passing any precedent since the reorganiza tion of the army after the civil war. In the navy, a few years ago, an arrangement somewhat analogous allowed several pro motions to the grade of Rear-Admiral ; but this army deal outdoes that. Yet everybody seems to regard It with satisfaction, since It has allowed several officers whoso service during tho civil war was use ful and conspicuous to retire with a coveted hlshor nrado. whllo Impeding only for a few days tho promotions of thoso who wcro looked upon from the start to perform permanently the active duties of such grades. It is true that It would hardly bo wise to uso every vacancy among the general officers to make so liberal a dis tribution of stars as that' just recorded. But tho occasion was exceptional, and with the rapidly diminishing number of officers still on the active list who achieved great national renown during the war, there is little danger that tho precedent will bo fol lowed too often. Tho Burden of Clovclandlsm. Two noted members of tho former Demo cratic party, tho Hon. Henry Watterson of Louisville and the-Hon. Hoke Smith of Atlanta, have been discussing tho Hon. Grover Cleveland as an actor in tho poll tics of the day. Mr. Watterson has been In times past far more of an admirer than a critic of Mr. Cleveland's public perform ances, and Mr. Smith was onco a member of a Cleveland Cabinet. Two years ago both of theso gentlemen were firm in their advocacy of the Government's honorable maintenance of Its historic gold standard of money, Mr. Smith having defended It with marked ability and impresslvo evidenco of conviction In a memorable debate between himself and the late Speaker Crisp, who was on the other side. To-day Mr. Watterson Is as he was In re spect of the coinage question, whereas Mr. Smith turned a year ago, when the Democ racy turned, and Is now for the party plat form of free silver. Together these gentle men have been expressing opinions upon the lost Democratic President as a candi date for a third term, which, apart from their relovancy or Irrelevancy to the possi bilities of the future, may spread some use ful understanding of Mr. Cleveland's peculiar relation to public affairs. Mr. Watterson has spoken with prompt ness and well sustained vigor upon the re cent Reform Clnb banquet in New York, where ex-President Cleveland, still fresh from having caused the wreck of the Na tional Democracy, with tho attendant and still continuing perils to tho financial honor and social order of tho United States, was shoved to the front as a guide for Dem ocratic reorganization and Populist sup pression. Mr. Watterson saw first and last In that dinner and Its speech what he has seen In every political affair with which Mr. Cleveland has been connected, namely, a scheme to get him nominated for the Presidency, a Cleveland third-term movement; and be declaimed against it like a Democrat from whom the last taint of cuckooism bad disappeared. He felt that tho real purposo of tho dinner was to keep Mr. Cleveland before the public, and that beyond that there was no serious purpose. He resented the Idea that tho gold Demo crats, stalwart defenders of the national honor and the hope of Democratic regene ration, should be mode worse than useless to both causes through belngsbackled to tho inextinguishable, annually Intensified and now publicly odious devotion of Mr. Cleve land to his own fortunes. Mr. Watterson knows, In common with other people, that Cleveland's desire and effort for a third term In 1800 drove a sullen but determined Democracy Into tho arms of the Populists, and precipitated upon the country the very dangcragalnst which Mr. Cleveland posed In opposition. Tho Courier-Journal will bavo none of this again If It can help It. Possibly the dinner members of the Re form Club, professed supporters of the gold standard, have thought that they had erred in thus jerking Mr, Cleveland to his legs after he had been ignominlously but effectually prostrated. Possibly a touch of shame at their utter Inability to make any satisfactory explanation of their gratuitous parade of him, led them and their newspaper allies to try to ridicule Mr. Watteiison for fantastic imagination and far-fetched timidity. Their treat ment of the situation has elicited an in structive continuation of tho themo from Mr. Watt erson, who hopes with the san guine, confidence of a gallant spirit for tho reorganization of the Democratic- party on the old lines. "Waiving for tho moment," says the Courier-Journal, " Mr. Cleveland's ante cedents and the odium that attaches Itself to his name with tho overwhelming ma jority of Democrats In the West and South, his reappearance upon the scene would at once chango the Issue from one of sound economics to that of a third term of the Presidency, a fatal transfer on tho very threshold. Our whole purpose," continues the Courier-Journal, "Is to warn sound money Democrats, particularly In the West and South, against the schemes of a small body of persons, who, however unimportant in themselves, may have it In their power to so muddle and distort a noble cause, and to so bend a great movement to Ignoble and Bclflah Issues, represented In the person of Mr. Cleveland, as In the end actually to play Into the hands of the free sllverltes." While the Mugwumps endeavor to squelch the Kentucklan with levity, the Atlanta Journal, the Hon. Hokb Smith's j organ, which speaks now for the millions III' ' ,- -- , -, - j, , Ill'' aMaMMiMriiaMaMB who followed the Chicago platform, replies calmly and seriously. Notwithstanding It styles Mr. Cleveland's ncf orm Club effort a " twenty-ton speech," It agrees that tho ban quet meant Cleveland more than It meant honest money ; but it laughs at our contem porary's longing for an honest-money De mocracy not In Cleveland's Interest: "So far aa Mr. Warrxasoifa Interpretation of the significance of the Reform Club banqnet la concerned. It Is entirely justified by the character of the men who fawn on CUtTxuitD.by their Intellectual calibre, and by other circumstances not necessary to menUon. We are of the opinion that those who treat the matter flippantly are of one mind with respect to the schema the Reform Club U hatching, for there can be no sort of donbt as to the Intentions of the satellites. "Only Clkykuucd can represent CleTelandlsm. With the ex-rrcsldent attre and out of offloe, be Is the only possible or arallable candidate of the men who nominated Pilmu and Rrcxraa and then deserted their candidates for McKixlxt. The bolters Instlnc tlrely felt that PiLacn and Bccxxn, running on a cut-and-drled platform, oonld nerer represent CleTe landlsm. The political 'nondescripts' and 'nin compoops' the terms are applied by Mr. Warrxitsoii who compose the Clereland party, lo not ask htm to declare himself on any question. They simply Indorse In adranoe orerythlng that he does, ererythlng that he says, and ererythlng that ho thinks. " Mr. WaTTtRsoK Is the only man of any reputation or Influence among the bolters who baa denounoed the third-term scheme and protested against the logical result nf ClOTelandtim. It Is hardly possible that Mr. Wattkmox's defection from the glorious band of -nondescripts- and 'nincompoop' wlU hare the effect of disarranging the programme which the gold syndlcste has In hand. A part of this pro gramme la to put CLXTxujro up for a third term and a fourth candidacy. That programme will ba carried out, and. Indeed, we should be sorry to see It fall. We need Just such a performance aa that to conrlnce a number of people in this country of the ultimate aim and purpose of those who desire to see the patriotism aa weU aa the prosperity of the people of thla ooun try destroyed by mean of the single gold standard." So Hokb thinks. It there be anywhere failure to appreciate his argument, a pe rusal of tho extraordinary plank In tho Chi cago platform condemning the third term will justify It, Tho Chicago Convention, and the more than six million voters who cast their votes for Bryan a little over six months ago, felt that in rejecting Cleve land they at least saved the Democratic party from tho disgrace of a third-term canvass. That was consolation and support to thousands who remembered with shame that thoy had sold themselves to the fraud of free silver. Cleveland and his bonds, issued to make good tho deficit under the pretence of defending tho gold standard, filled the popullzed Democracy with the passion of a holy war. First he drove the Democratic party into Populism, and then his bond-Issuing slander of honest money nearly delivered tho United States to Bryonlsm and free silver. Any political .activity with which he Is associated to-day becomes an object of hostile suspicion to tho vast majority of tho people of the United States. Henry Watterson, a whole-hearted bulwark of honest money, and Hoki: Smith, a silver man, agree that the ex-President and his friends are at bottom still agents of Clevelandlsm, and that Clevelandlsm is n millstone about the neck of the gold standard. It would be a public blessing If Grover Cleveland should expatriate himself with all technical formality, and go and live somewhere else. The Memory of the Signers. In the city of Lancaster, Pa., tn which for a short time during the Revolutionary war the Continental Congress held Its sessions, and which for thirteen years was tho capital of the State of Pennsyl vania, there was unveiled on Friday last (Juno 4), a monument to the memory of George Ross, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. It Is erected on tho site of his homestead by tho County Historical Society. The formal presentation was made by John A. Coyle, and the speech of ac ceptance by W. U. Hensel, formerly Penn sylvania's Attorney-General. The dedica tory oration was delivered by the Hon. Marriott Brosius, Representative of the Tenth Congress district. George Ross was a lawyer, and the num ber of lawyers In legislative bodies In tho early history of tho republic was much smaller, proportionately, than It Is In these times. There were fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence and twenty-four of them, or less than one-half, wcro members of the bar. In the last Con gress of 330 members, 228, or nearly two thirds of the total number, wcro members of the bar. Among the Senators in tho same Congress the lawyers were fifty-seven. In the First Congress the proportion of farmers was materially larger than is the caso now, and in the early stages of the republic physicians took a very activo part. There wero several among the original signers of the Declaration. Two of tho most noted men of the fifty-six, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Roger Sherman of Connecticut, described them selves respectively as a "printer" and a "shoemaker." George Ross, whoso services have been honored by the peoploof Lancaster, did not enjoy the longevity characteristic of many of his distinguished associates. The con cluding clause of the Declaration of Inde pendence pledged each of the signers to the others for " life, fortune, and sacred honor," but mora than half n century passed before tho last obligation ceased. John Adams when ho died was 01 years of ago, Robert Treat Paine of Massachusetts 83, tho Illustrious Thomas Jefferson 83, Thomas McKkan of Delaware 81, William Floyd of New York 87, the Illustrious Benjamin Franklin 84, William Ellery of Rhode Island 03, George Wythe of Virginia 80, Dr. Matthew Thornton of New Hamp shire 80, Samuel Adams 81, Francis Lewis, a Welshman, whoso home when he signed was in New York, 00, and Charles Carroll, the last to die, OS, John Adams and Jefferson died on tho fiftieth anni versary of the promulgation. Public honors paid to tho memory of theso devoted men arc, of course, lim ited to those States which were repre sented In tho original Union ; and It Is to tho credit of tho patriotic people of Penn sylvania that they have always been prompt and activo In such measures of recognition aa are incident to the observance of patri otic anniversaries. The Reinstatement of Canovas. Although tho Queen Regent's decision to retain Canovas in power may put an end to one hope entertained by President 51c Kinlky, yet It should really accelerate rather than retard bis own programme In regard to Spain. Had Saoasta, for example, succeeded Canovas, and had Weyler given way, if not to Martinez Campos, at least to some soldier whoso military methods would be dominated by the views of the fonner Captain-General, it might have seemed almost necessary for tho Administration at Wash ington to delay Ita own plans. It might have been desirable to wait for the new Ministry to study the situation and an nounce Its policy. But, as the case stands, 'i ' lwWWltWWMW MWWMwPii,ll there Is no reason now for postponing thoso negotiations with Spain, which are based on tho report of Commissioner Calhoun, and, in a broader way, on tho sentiment of Con gress and the American people Whether, In the mean time, Spain has acted wisely, or has missed n great oppor tunity, only tho result will show. Among somo European onlookers there Is frankly expressed astonishment that the Crown should not have seized tho occasion of the voluntary resignation of Canovas, due to the Totuan incident and to tho growing opposition of tho Liberals, for trying a change of policy. But the dread of swap ping horses tn crossing a stream seems to have been more potent than any other dread, and to this samo fear wo must prob ably ascribe tho retention of Weyler, If he really should bo retained, which last Is a point by no means settled. For It seems clear that It the Qucon Regent took Into her councils men llko Saoasta and Mar tinez Campos, and thoy assented to tho re sumption of authority by Canovas, at least somo respect must have been paid to their general views of tho proper mode of carrying on tho war. At all events, with the crisis at Madrid ended, It seems hardly worth whllo for our Government to count any further on aid for Its plans from that source. Tho breach be tween tho Liberals and Conservatives may prove to bo as wldo as over, and another crisis may come, but It is now necessary to put forth efforts to secure peace for Cuba on tho basis of Independonoe ; and this should be done at onco In order to derive any needed aid from Congress while that body Is still In session. Mr. Foster's Errand. The silence preserved In regard to ex Secretary Foster's visit to London may safely bo Interpreted as a token that this part of his mission has proved fruitless. But ho proposed to deal with Russia and Japan as well as with England In regard to tho suspension of scaling, under a joint agreement, in Behrlng Sea. He has there fore continued bis journey to St. Peters burg, and there is ground to believe that there he may be able to secure such a modus Vivendi as wo require. Then, with Japan joining In, as she Is expected to do, a pres sure may be oxcrted on England. Yet It Is useless, apparently, to look for any agreement which will apply to tho present year. On Aug. 1 sealing again be comes lawful In Retiring Sea, and there would not bo time to notify the sealers, even supposing that the adhesion of Russia and Japan to the desired agreement could bo had very soon, and that then Great Britain would join. Thus the errand of Mr. Foster Is robbed of much of its hoped for results, lecouse the purpose of appoint ing a Special Commissioner seems to have been to secure an arrangement for tho present season, rather than to trust to the slow processes of ordinary diplomatic notes between the Governments concerned. Another season of pelagic slaughter in Bebring Sea may therefore be considered as assured, and at Its end we shall be able to see how much of tho seal herd is left for protection next year. Weyler's Terror. On Friday last we spoke of the circum stance that so long as President McKin ley's Special Commissioner stayed at Ha vana, performing the duty for which he was sent there, Captain-General Weyler re mained away from the city, only a short dis tance away from it. As soon, however, as Commissioner Calhoun had left the city and taken ship for this country, Weyler hastened to Havana. The Commissioner sailed from Havana on Thursday lost, and tho next day Weyler took a steamer for Havana, where he arrived on Saturday. The Captain-General had kept out of the reach of the Commissionerduring all of the three weeks in which the latter was at the Cuban capital, desirous of conferring with the official to whom ho was accredited by tho President of tho United States. Weyler was guilty of bad manners in avoiding for so long a time the President's representative. He Ignored the President from first to last. Weti.kii ought to have been ashamed to rush back to Havana the day ho ascertained that Mr. Calhoun had left it. He was afraid to meet Calhoun. He was in dread of the questions that Cal houn would put to him. It is now mani fest that this creature Weyler Is a pol troon and a sneak, as well as a butcher, a wanton destructlontst and a malefactor.

Tho leading artlolo of tho third number of that publication Informs Its readers that "the Greenbacks and Treasury notes are not Intrinsically sound money becauoo their redemption depends upon tho Government having in Its Treasury a sufficient amount of gold to mcot such notes as are prosentcd for redemption."

Mann of Omaha we havo rccolvcd a pamphlet containing nn article by him, reprinted from Popular Astron omy, on tho orbit of Slrlns. Tho nrtlclo give tho results of Mr. Slnnn's latest calculations and conclusions concerning tho path of Iho irreat companion of 8lrlus discovered by Alvan Clark in 1802. Observations of nnglo nnd distance from 1P02 to October. 1800, Inclusive, are employed In tho calculations. From 181)0 to 18P0 there wero no observations, as the companion was apparently o noar Its principal as to bo lost In tbo Intonso light That is, tho orbit Is so Inclined that tho companion In Its Jonrncy came nearly In liny with tho planet and observers on the onrth ana was therefore Invisible Six years wero required for passage over nn angular distance sufficient to get clear of the blazo of Slrius and becomu visible to observers. ... It Is apparent from the delineation by Mr. Mann of an approximate orbit with tho positions of the companion at the date of each observation, nnd from tho text, that the work of calculation was dlfllettlt. Kor no orbit could bo constructed that ould touch tho companion except on cloven dates out of forty-one. Tho angles and distances given on thootherdatosof observation placed the companion outside or tnstdo thedcllncntcd orbit. It must be understood thnt this orbit, an ellipse, was drawn after numerous trials to touch tho companion at tho greatest posslblo number of times. Tho work was done on a scale which would render the thickness of a lino of great ac count. Furthermore, It was the purposo to draw tho orMtsoasto bring the companion at' near as posslblo to the outside or Insldo of the lino nt every observation. After many trials Mr. Mann was forced to concludo that the wldo divergence often noted could not be explained by errors of observation, and that the com panion suffered perturbation from the pull of a second body revolving about Strlus and a giant satellite yet unseen, lie concludes that the com panion has a period of fiO.l'Jo years, and that It passed Its principal or Slrius In 1804-03, and that the distance of the stnr from tho centre Is 4 sec onds nnd 20 hundredths. Of a disturbing body or satellite Mr. Mann writes: "A third memberof the system seems to be Indicated, having a period of somo twenty years, motion retrograde, the plane of whoso orbit cuts that of tho one wo are considering at obout thirty degress, whom tho disturber ap pears to havo passed in 1880, at a distance from Slrius of four or llveneconds. The disturbances noted may also bo complicated by a massive satellite of tho companion moving In an orbit commcnsuratowlth this grandiose system. ' Tho ovldencc of perturbation Is sufficient to warrant thee conclusions. It Is possible that tho third member of the system may yet bo sighted or so carefully traced by the matheraat I clans as to bo precisely located. Mr. Mann's work Is of great intorcst. TIIE CHEEK EZ.EP1IAXT8. Queer Feature or nn American Ctataa Aa-alst Slam. From tht Ran FrancUco CAronleJa. WAsniNOTOX. May 29. A crisis seems to bs at hand In the affairs of the Chcok estate. With in a few weeks thcro must bo decided whether nld will be given to the heirs of the deceased Teak King, or the last hope of something being gained In the suit against the Siamese Govern ment abandoned. Uut there Is one difficulty which confronts the men who have thus far taken charge of the case for the heirs of Dr. Marion A. Cheek. When the Siamese Government. In behalf of its claim that it should compel payment of tho Interest on Its loan to Dr. Check, seized all of his property and cotillscHtcd the main tortlon of iho assets, the logs in the streams, it allowed to bo dissipated this portion of tho estate. Lying In the streams nwalting transportation to market were logs to the value of bOO.tXK) ticnls, or nearly $500. 000, but thero was no cire taken to preserve these assets of the American, sn when it came to a settlement there was not enough to pay the claims of the Government. As a result, the Government at onic laid claim to the herd of seventy-six elephants of Dr. Cheek. Soon after this came the death of Dr. Cheek. The ndminlstratorof the estate found himself In a moM peculiar position B regards the principal assets tn the hands of the representatne of the dead lumberman, those seventy-six elephants. An elephant Is not the least expensive of lux uries when he Is purely one. The counter claim of the Siamese Government, set up to prevent the sale of tho elephants, operated at the same tune to prevent the leasing or pawning of the beasts. And thero they wcro being fed and tended and literally "eating their heads off." Now- It Is found that there Is not available enough money to send counsel to prepare the casu for final submission. Unless the State Department will asrree to have Minister Barrett hire an attorney, taking a lien on any Judgment obtained for the expense, there seems to be n hard road before tho estate in its efforts to collect damages for what Is con sidered a most outrageous confiscation of the estate of an American citizen. Past Speaker1 la CsasTio . yrovxlh Washinoton fMf. Fred S. Irluid, one of tho expert stenogra phers of the House, talked interestingly yester day regarding the speed with which Congress men talk. " It has been said in the newspapers," re marked Mr. Irland, "that Representative 1Cis of Washington talks at the rate of 300 words a minute. He does not. No man could speak in the House nt that speed and be re ported. I doubt whether ho could bo under stood. I mean, of course, such words as occur in debates. Of totirse In Inking routine testimony, where frequently recurring phrases, such as what is your name V and 'where do you live?' aro expressed by brief arbitrary signs, a stenog rapher can w rite a fast as a man can think. It is a very different matter when a Congressman talks. Ho uses words with many Billables." " What Is the fastest record In tbo House I" "HepresentntlNo Johnson of Indiana once talked for an hour and a half, when discussing n contested election cose, at an average rale- of 220 words a minute. That Is rapid work. If a man talks 2.M1 words n minute ho Is very BwlfL I have noticed one thing," added Mr. Irland. "The fast talkers slow up after being In the House a little while. Tho vastness of the air space they have to Oil with their voices gradu ally makes Its impression upon them, and they rind, too. that they get mora attention when they do not talk bo fast."
