i.'IDAY, - - JANUARY 3. A lusrvrrH fro;n San Francisco, says th:?t :i representative of a Japanese man uf.icttirin syndicate ha? lought 50.0CX) h:i of cotton, which are to be shipped to Yokohama during the present season. The liberator, Simou Bolivar, of Yen- ziH-la, is represented by an equestrian statue in Central Park, New York, while Cfore Wns-hington is honored by a slatue in a square in Caracas. There is hardly a bouse in Caracas, that has not in it a picture of Washington. Tjik S;. Pet- r-burg correspondent of Jrut Fit h- Prrse, telegraphs that Russia and France have actually promised diplomatic support of the United States in the Venezuelan trouble, and states that Iiuspia is prepared to facilitate the United States loan with her own gold reserve. Is view to the great benefit that must accrue to the business interests and trade relations of "ew York by holding the next Democratic national convention there, the Jfrrahl, of that city announces that it will head the subscription list for that purpose with $10,000, provided the rest of the amount required be sub scribed by the businessmen of that city Congress has by a joint resolution which passed without opposition au thuiied the secretary of the Navy to accept at the contract price the ram Kaiahdin, which was rejected by the president for failure to make the speed required in the contract, it having been shown that the builders were not to blame, they having constructed tbe.ves sel on government plans. The president on Wednf sday night announced the composition of the Ven ezuelan commission, which will consist of five niemlers, as follows: David J. Prewer, of Kansas associate justice of the supreme court of the United States: Richard II. Alvey, of Maryland, chief justice of the court of appals of the i Jistnrt of Columbia; Andrew D. White, Frederick K. Coudert, of New York: DinielC. Oilman, president of the John Hopkins university. The wise policy, which dates back to Secretary Whitney's day, of establish ing armor making plants in this coun try has now been vindicated, not only by obtaining for our ships the best ar mor in the world, but by the calls made for supplying other countries. Russia, it appears, has added to her former or der for Rethlehem armor a new nl larger call for both Bethlehem and Car negie plates for two of her new warships. Japan may follow Russia, and thus there are foreign as well as home triumphs in store. The passase of the financial bill in the house cn Saturday, says the Phihw delphia That, by a vote of 170 yeas to 136 nays shows that Speaker Reed's po litical lines are already broken, and it is doubtless but the leginning of Republi can disintegration in the house that is likely to make the Democratic demor alization in the last congress compara tively respectable. The bond bill forced through the house by Speaker Reed, is purely a po litical invention, conceived primarily to aid Speaker Reed's nomination for the presidency and next to save the party. It was well known to every Republican leader in the house that the bond bill could not pass the senate; that if passed by the senate it could not be approved by the President, yet it was forced through under whip and spur; but 47 Republicaus had the courage to declare their inpependence and vote with VS2 Demccr-its and the Populists squarely against the measure Speaker Reed and his fellow leaders had what might be deemed official notice from the secretary of the treasury that the bill they passed was inadequate to meet the necessities of the government, and its errors were pointed out with dis tinctness. Had statesmanship instead of politics ruled the speaker and the majority party of the hou?e, there would have been some attempt to modi fy the bill to enable the government to maintain public and private credit with out resorting to another bond issue that must cost the e ple millions of money solely for want of a distinct expression for payment in the only money accepted by the civilized world and which this government will ever use iu discharging its obligations. The bill as adopted by the house was passed with the knowl edge of the leaders that it was purely a partisan expression, and its passage forced in the face of direct information Al A 1 .1 iiiai maxes me measure valueless even if enacted by congress and approved by the president. lhe fact that Speaker Reed's forces have been broken into fragments at the very threshold of the session clearly in dicates that the different elements of the Republican party will play politics rather than statesmanship during the present session, regardless of the interests of the nation; and it is not improbable that be fore this session shall have closed the Republican majority of the house will be in little more tavor with the notion than was the Democratic majority of the last congress at the close of its first session. Every attribute of statesmanship seems to have been subordinated to mere pol itics, and that is likely to teach the na tion, as did the last congress, that the party in power is incompetent to rule the greatest republic of the world. Washington l.etlrr. The Democrats of the house and sen ate will be unanimous in opposing the tariff sc heme Speaker Reed is thrusting niton the country on the gauzy pretense of increasing the revenues. And there is an otficial at "the other end of the avenue" who, not having had the feli city of signing a tariff bill to his liking, will undoubtedly take great pleasure in vetoing one that is so objectionable in every sense. We doubt, however, if the house popgun bill will get through the senate. The same tight the Republicans tiiaJe against the Wilson bill and will be strictly in order. There has been no de mand from any quarter, except from the Ohio shepherds, for this new edition of McKinleysim. and it is a gratuitous and uncalled for reopening of the tariff debate when the business and industries of the country are demanding that mat ters shall remain at rest. The Hellespont, or the strait of the Dardanelles, which has been the scene of so many historical contlicts, is just now the center of interest in the Turkish complications. The strait is a narrow channel connecting the Aegean with the sea of Marmora. It is entirely within Turkish territory, separating Turkey in Karope from Turkey in Asia. It is about 4.3 miles in length and is from f-00 feet to 4i miles in width. At one time the passage at the narrowest point was guarded by chains. At the en trance are two castles or forts which were regarded as quite formidable in the old time, but which amount to nothing as defenses against modern warships. At the narrow point in the channel are two other forts, which it ia supposed would make a fair defense. There are in the strait modern gunboat-, and torpedo boats have been placed in the channel by the engineers in i ue service of the Turkish merit. The Republicans now have control of both branches of the national legis lature. They secured control of the sen ate by an alliance with the populist members of that body and from this time forth will have things their own way so far as legislation is concerned. The Altoona Tribune, whose Rennbli- j canism cannot be questioned thinks, however, that the dose is too strong to be swallowed without a murmer. The Tribune on Wednesday says: The re cent alliance of the Republicans in the United States senate with the populists is a reproach to the party and a disgrace to the nation. There are honorable men and true among the senators, but they are not very numerous and seem to have been unanimously absent when the reorganization of the senate was effected on Monday. This was done by surren dering the control of the finance com mittee into the hands of the free silver people and permitting the populist sen ators to ren.am undisturbed upon the several committees. In consideration of the practical declaration by the Re publican senators in favor of a debased and a dishonest dollar, the Populists re frained from voting and the change in the organization was effected. An alli ance wun populists is not to the credit of the men who consummated it and the federal senate is, at present, a nuisance and a fraud. in govern- The most stirring utterance on pros pective war yet heard is by Mr. Waiter son, of Kentucky: "Could we hold our own against Eng land and her possible allies? Ours is a land of veterans. Reunited, the men who fought with equal valor for North and South would march under one flag as ralorously as when they answered the bugle call of a Grant or a Ie, a Mor gan or a Custer. War is a calamity. It may Je a necessity. When you deal with bullies you must meet them on VU"""'JU srounu. it is the manifest destiny of the United States to rule this entire continent. If Lord Salisbury thirds we are unequal to any combina tirh be can put into the field, let him 'put an army into the disputed Venez uelan territory. ,. "If we do not stand by the Monroe doctrine, we shall not rtand by nothing. If we do not stand by a neighboring rv public, badgered by the most unscroup- ijer uristenuom, then snail deserve all the humiliation pdium we shall get." Nobody expects, says the New York Hrrald, that the bond bill rushed through the house by the Republicans last week win pass the senate, and that even if it should, it would afford the financial res lief of which the treasury stands need. This failure on the part of congress to come to the aid of the government will leave the president and secretary of the Treasury no other recourse than to make another bond issue under the ex isting law, with its costly disadvantage to the nation. The section of the bill providing for a limited popular loan to raise revenue when revenue may be needed is eood as far as it goes. But the house has missed an exceptional opportunity to send to the senate a thoroughgoing popular loan bill that would meet the pending emergency by affording the treasury the financial relief it needs, and at the same time giving the people of the country the benefit of taking the bonds The more a popular loan is considered the more its advantages both to the gov ernment and the people must be appre ciated. That it wili come in time we have no sort of doubt. The sooner con gress provides for it the better it will be for the country. Washington. D. C , Dec . 2S, 1S'." Speaker Reed's muzzle? are in prime working order. He muzzled the mem hers of the Ways anil Means committee and com pel let! them to report two bill? prepared by him; one increasing tin tariff upon woo!, wmileus and lumber t f.O per cent oi whut it was ia t!ie Mo Kinley law, and raising the tariff u or. cicrjuiiiiK use, niT,Uii;luTir, 1; per cent above present rates, and ine other providing fur the i-Mie of three per cent coin bonds to replenish the gold reserve whenever the secretary of the treasury deems it necessary, arid of .-;, (M0, HH in three per cent. ;,-year trea.-ury certiti cates, or so much there . f a- lhe secre tary of the treasury may need from time to time. He muzzled the objecting Re publicans who wanted the bills submitted to a caucus before being reported to the house, aud lastly he muzled the house and had his bills passed, notwithsiand ing that the Democrats did all the pro testing they could under the Ii ed rules, against the railroading of such import ant legislation through the bouse with out debate. When cue of his own party went to Mr. Reed and asked that a reasonable time be allowed fur dermic on the bills lefire they were passed, Mr. Reed-dismissed him by saying sharply : "The house isn't a debating society." In fact for all practical purposes there is no house. Its powers have all been i usurped by Mr. Reed and its only im- portaut duties are to obey his orders. But there are neither Reed rules nor methods in the senate, to which these bills have now gone, aud the country may count upon their being thoroughly debated liefcre they are acted upon. It is doubtful whether either of them can pass the seuate at all, and certain neither can get through without beiug material ly amenried.

I would have set a precedent which might make trouble iu the future to accept the vessel after its failure to make the speed named in the contract, so it w.is deemed best to refuse to accept. B it the ad ministration s influence will be used to get the joint resolution authorizing the president to accept the Katahdin, which has already been introduced, adopted by congress, so there is little doubt that the Katahdin will soon be a part of Uncle Sam s navy.

Dec. 2S A horrible sui cide occurred to day in East Eleventh sireet, near, Avenue A. Persons going to work saw a man leap from the roof of a five story tenement at No. C07, iuto the street. His body struck on the edge of the sidewalk and rebounded into the middle of the street. He was instantly killed. The suicide was Charles Wacherer, a German compositor, whose home was on the fourth tloor of the tenement. He lived there with bis wife and child, an infant of six months. He was 45 years old and had worked at his trade for years, but recently his eyesight began to fail him. He became partly blind and lost his position in consequence Several day? ago. He has t een despondent ever since, but gave no indication that he contem plated suicide. He got up this morning and prepared some food for his baby. An hour later he told his wife he was going out to get something. Before he left the room, he kissed the child. Then he went up on the roof of the next hr use, from which he jumped into the street In the dead man s pocket the p dice found a letter written in German, giving his reasons for taking his life. I SILKS. iicw a.mtii:k koi t..s. Shot by His Hog. Pawtucket, R I., Dec. 2!) Louis Iezotte was shot by his own dog while squirrel hunting in the woods near Re hoboth, Mass., this afternoon. He had a double barrelled gun with him, and sighting a squirrel high up in an oak, Pezotte let go one barrel, badly wound ing the siiirrel. Standing the gun against the tree, Ixzotte began to climb to secure his quarry. The dog, which from the time of the discharge of the gun had been running excitedly around the tree, began to jump against the trunk as if tryiug to follow his master. His paw 6truck the trigger of the loudVd barrel, sending a charge of shot up past Eezotte's side and lodging in the muscles of the right arm near the shoulder. Lezotte fell, but managed to make his way to a doctor in Reholoth, who sent for an ambulance to take the wounded m ui to the Rhode Island hos pital. There it was said that the arm would probably have to be amputated. lhe Armenian Martyrs. Chicago, Dec 28. M. M. Mangasaiv iau has just received letters from Am- asm.
