While the late despatches from lleilin

of the Kmperor Francis Jiiskpii of
Austria is at hand may easily provo
prcmatute they are in part conlirtiied
by a long seiies of similar rumors which

Senator Ktu.KY of Texus had an
overflow audience when he delivered
j Ins much advertised valedictory in the
1 hamber on the tirst wot king day of
I ill- new year, and ih" reason was two-
10111 a sensational out Durst was ex
pected of him. and his reputation as the
Wning Man F.looiiPiit still survived.
j Not lung lasts so long in Congress as th"
orator's lame, it is proof agutnsi loss of
personal inllucnie anil the decline of
esteem. Mr. H.vn.F.Y had censed to be
a useful and a respected Senator, but
people (locked to hear htm talk, also
10 see him for a man w ho had assaulted
a brother Senator and was always will
itig to resort to fisticufls to vindicate
himself had come to be a spectacle.
Mr Htn.KY 1 ould always talk in flow
ing periods and melhfluoijsly, when he
was wrong or right, whether he was
; tittering common sense or buncombe.
l.atteily he was often in the w-rong, and
since his first appearance at the Capitol
he had spouted luimbug for home con
sumption without a blush mantling his
smooth round cheek. Never did a
young member of Congress seem to
have a more promising career than
Joseph W. Haii.ky when at the age, of
twenty-nine he made his first speech in
tho House, on January if), mvj. The
Washington cot respondents of that day
were loud in hi? praises. He was stal
wart, wholesome to look at, hand
some 111 fact He had a fine pealing
voice, his enunciation was distinct and
pleasing, lie knew his subject, he pre
sented it cleat ly and his logic was un
answerable. Best of all, although now
11 seems luci edible, he bore himself
modestly. A report, of that maiden
speech says that "many members from
both sides of the House crowded about
the new orator and extended cordial
Iteprcsentiitiv!' Uaii.k.y'h reputation
waxed piodigioiisly for a lime ho was
even made minority leader almost in
the first flush of youthful statesman
ship, a term used advisedly, for who
was a sturdier and more euphonious
defendi'i- of ihe Constitution' Hut Mr.
Haii.ky did not flourish as minority
leader, his modesty had worn off, his
charm had proved evanescent, he was
intolerant , choleric and perversa in his
gloomy grandeur. The spirit of con
ciliation was not in him. His colleagues
must be either for him or against him
he would not compromise with I hem.
His popularity waned, his influence
Vtilii-hed and tle'l" wete no regrets,
when lie was translated to the Senate.
An it Senator Mr. Uailky lias never
shown any teal promise, and certainly
no performance. He has said sonic of
the most foolish things ever hrurd In
the chamber, he must have known they
were arrant nonsense. He has talked
ubsiitdly about art, the automobile, the
telalloiis of tlir rich and poor, nnd on a
score of other subjects that came up in
debate. He has si ill rumbled inngnifi
lently about the Constitution, anil his
views on some public ipteittiops liave
been sound enough, but so marked by
bitterness of spirit and violence of epi
thet thai as an advocate he was of little
value 10 his cause. He has been a dan
gerous man to cross, as Mr. Bkvkiiiikik
learned to his hiimiljat ion Asa rhetori
cian Mr. Haii.ky is still attractive in
occasional passages, but the truth is lit;
has never been eloipielit as I he late
Gkoikik F I n vil was elotpienl or as
Mr l.opdK, is to-day In his prepared,
speeches. The Senate will gel along'
very well without Mr. Haii.kv, he will,
be missed only by those who have taken '
him seriously as an orator. I
Taking Chillier-,
Many things could be said about
Iami;h H. Kkkn'k, and many sulcinii
and possibly edifying oracular lessons
and sermons read over him. An easy
task for any tiphfter of the voice.

theatres in the city closed pending im
piovements in const ruction that shall
make them comply with the ordinances
of the Kite Ueparttnent will be wel
comed by all light thinking citizens.
Instances have been too fiequent in
which the inadequacy of precautions
in case of fire was only demonstrated
after fire hud oTtirrcd and lives had been
lost, and the present action of the bu
reau in enforcing the ordinances before
instead of after a catastrophe and with
out any popular clamor demanding it
will go far lo inspire public confidence
in its ellictency, a confidence that was
Henonsly shaken by the disclosures
made as a result of the disastrous shirt
waist factory fire.
Sympathy will be felt with the man
agements of the closed theatres on ac
count of the inconvenience and loss to!
which they arc exposed, but they, as in
a special sense servants of the public'
should bo the first to appreciate tho
fact that the safety of ihe public is of
prime importance, and in the end the
increased popular confidence that they
will enjoy ns a result of putting their
houses in order and complying frankly
and readily with the city's ordinances
will compensate them for any temporary
loss that they may incur.
The .Next American Arctic FJntcr
prlses. The two expeditions that are to leave
this town parly next summer for the
Arctic regions north of this continent
have one purpose in common One
party, under Mr. Macmii.i.an, will head
for Smith Sound and the west coast of i
Grant Iand to ascertain first the extent I
and nature of Crocker Ijitid, if it really
exists, the other party, under Mr. Stkk
anhson, is going to Banks Iuncl and
Prince Patrick Island, in the northwest
ern part of the Parry Archipelago. As
far lis is now known, these two regions
mark iheeusiern, western and northern
limits of ihe Parry Archipelago. Both
expeditions will be equipped for a three
years sojourn, and each has a full and
adinirabltt programme of work for that
period, and ihe scheme that will enlist
their joint efforts is the most important
yet attempted in that region.
The Stefansson party, working east
ward, and MtcMU.i.AN'H men, working
westward, will endeavor lo establish
the edge of the continental shelf to the
north of the Parry Archipelago along
the live hundred miles between their re
spective headquarters. The continental
shelf is Ihe sea floor covered by shallow
waters and extending out from tho
continents, for example, from fifty to
a hundred milea along much of the
eastern border of North America. Its,
edge i where the sea floor descends to!
oceanic depths
With the exception of a Very few small
islands like Jan Maycn of volcanic ori
gin, no land mass has been discovered
in tli Aretiethat does not stand on the
coiitinentalHlielf. Shallow walerMcxtctid
nil the way from thp consls of Kuiopa
lo dm land masses of Spitzbergen and
Franz .Josef lind. Tim long drill of
I lie.ileaniictte was over ilm continental
shelf and small lands were found.
I'kary and Nanskn on their long jour
neys north found no land rising out of
the 0"enin'e deeps,
.Stkpa.nsnon will endeavor also to
travel ovrr I he sea lie to t he norl hwest of
Hanks I .a nd and Prince. Patrick Island
lo seaich for land and for Ihe edge of
tlip continental shelf.
If tlieso expeditions arc able lo carry
out thflr design Ihey will practically
settle the question of the distribution
and extent of lands in (lie Western Hemi
sphere. It is litting that American
explorers should solve the problem how
far land musses may extend iiorihwatd
in Ihe American Arctic
