"Tho senato bus struck a seiious blow." says the Dully News, -'at the fundamental principles of good faith among nations, at its own reputation and at tho very consltution ofthegreat republic." "We are thankful, ' says tho Dally Chronicle, "that tho senato stopped short of amendments obviously de signed to wreck tho vvliolo proceedings.

Mr. Georgo W. Whoatley, tho defeated Republi can candidato for congress in thoThlrd district of Kansas, has been in Wash ington nearly two weeks conferring with members of tho Kansas delega tion and expert authority relative to a contest. Whoatley was defeated by Jackson, fusionist, by 17(1 votes. Tho grounds for Wheatloy's proposed contest of tho election of tho latter was based on tho alleged facts that tnnny votes wero liupoited from tho Indian Territory and Missouri into tho district who voted for Jackson. livery detail in tho case has been thoroughly gono over land discussed, und It is now stated that Whoatley has concluded to withdraw the fight for a contest, fearing an uncertainty of suf llcetit evidence to pull his cuscthrough successfully.

This Is ono of tho appllcatlonsof tho principal secret of long life which a large number of prominent Knglish medical men aro preaching to all thoir patients. Tho theory, condensed into a phrase, is "conservatlonof energy." It is combined with two older and more familiar precepts moderation and system. Ono of the queen's physicians has just written a popular articlo on tho subject which is attract ing a great deal of attention, because in his application ot his principles ho combats some ideas which havo long ru.'cd tho professional and lay mind. To begin with, ho says, What Jls lifo? That is a question, ho admits, which you cannot answer, but you know one thing it inevitably leads to, and that is death, and in a general way you know what brings about death, and that is tho expenditure in some way bf tho last remaining ounce of energy. It is when ho condemns the unneces sary waste of energy by Jexerciso that this eminent physician surprises us. Tho man who works hardwith hlshead all day and then takes a long walkfor tho sake of oxerclso makos a terrible mistake, according to this authority. "Mental energy and bodily energy," ho declares, "comes to tho same thing ut tho finish. Hating freely drawn from tho stock of one, you must not then tap the other with tho Idea that It is beneficial, for It Is not. They havo a common source " Ho cites Joseph Chamberlain, who takes no physical exercise whatever, us tho most con spicuous example of tho soundness of his theory. Lemma 1'ostoillcc All Right.
