WASHINGTON: THl'KKDtY JMUTT I, INK. ?at?Mmy ?. iom Mint. THE FTfMXJ WTAR has the fuller local C Irrulation ?f muy Newspaper in Ike mud m ?> AH\rrti?in? >lr<linin Is worth more lhnn nil th?- other paprra publi?laed !? nnhinacton. Three Senators were named yesterday for the Jlfty-flrst Congress. In Maine. Mr. Frye wax renominated by accl imation, an a matter of rse. In Michigan. James McMillan wm chosen by the republican cancns to succeed Mr. Palmer. He is a citizen of Detroit, presi dent of the Michigan car company, and has a fortune estimated at fifteen million dollars. His age is only fifty-one. Without any preten sion as an orator, he has shown much ability as a political organizer, and has spent his money freelv for the party. When Zachari&h ( hand ler died in 1879. Mr. McMillan succeeded him M chairman of the republican state central committee; he was a Blaine and Logan elector in 1884. and was a prominent c andidate for the Senate to succeed Mr. Conger in 1887, but Withdrew at the last moment. In Colorado, Mr. Bowen makes way for Edward Oliver Wolcott. a Denver lawver of large practice. He is reputed to be the most magnetic speaker who has ever been heard in that part of the west, and people about the neighborhood of Denver will travel for miles to bear him when it is announced that he is to make ft public address. He is counsel for the Denver and Rio Grande railway company, and one of the judges on the Colorado tench once said of him that he could come nearer to making a Jury cry over a corporation suit than anj lawyer that ever lived. Hence, though the upper house of the Fifty-Brut Congress will eichange ft lumber king and an old-fashioned politician for two more millionaire railroad attorneys, it Will be a gainer over the present body by the Addition of one man whose forensic powers Will recall the memories of better days, when the floor of the Senate was the finest field for debate in the whole country. _ - The London Trl*iriiph pays a high compli ment to President-elect Harrison when it says that anybody he sends as minister to England will be peruana grata, but takes the taste of this out by its other statement that the English people have always contrived to make our min isters "more English than they were before they came to England." If by this is meant that the representatives of our country lose any of their loyalty in their admiration and affection for the motherland, it is something of which we have no reason to feel proud. If. however, the remark signifies simply that Americans improve their knowledge of English people and institution* by a residence among them, we may sav quite as much for the effect produced upon Englishmen when this condi tion is reversed. The London cockney who visits the United Stales and learns that he can not shoot Indians from the windows in Bunker Hill monument or chase the wild bison on Broadway, is a marked improvement upon his brother who stays at home and cherishes the fond delusions of his youth: und even the cul tivated habitue of West End drawing-rooms, who discovers that educated and refined Amer icans are not very different from educated and refined persons of other nationalities, has ac tnally taken a stride in Americanism him self. The episode in which Lord Lvtton figured in ft most conspicuous v. ay. a few years ago. as one of the (>atrons of a beautiful circus-rider, who floated through In lia on a clond of white tulle, created go great a vandal as to cause his lordship's transfer at an early dy. More than a dozen years ago a show caravan of six wagons, twenty or thirty men and women, and eighty horses, was stopped at the frontier while attempting to pass from Germany to Belgium, anil was the cause of a diplo matic correspondence by telegraph, in which even so great a magnate as Prince Bismarck took part. There was also Started on its travels, about the same time, a newspaper story of the operations of some per sons of note in American public life, in turn ing the consular service of the United States into an advertising medium for a traveling menagerie and hippodrome. Now comes news of the application of Consul Astwood at San Domingo and the government of the Domini can republic in behalf of a showman who proposes to carry the mortal remains of Christopher Columbus on a tour of the United States. There is no rea son. perhaps, in strict logic, why the show bus iness shoul l not stand ou the same footing as any other business, and enlist the service of American consuls as intermediaries when nec essary. But in the unwritten ethics of such matters there exist certain subtle distinctions; and the rule which would permit a correspond ence of this sort over the wile of a Jumbo or the taking of a cast from thn regulia in London Tower will not bear stretching to thi' point of proposing a partnership enterprise be tween a government and a museum-manager in rattling a great man's bones over our country for exhi bition at a half-dollar a head. ? mm ? - The denial of the existence of a white-cap organization in Ohio waa followed so promptly by the administration of a whipping to some offender against the moral code of that order that probably no attempt will be made to clear the good name of New Jersey in like manner. The white caps there have threatened a gro cers' protective aeeocifttion with tur and feath ers. rail riding. ?ud everything else that is bad, if it dares to publish a list of delinquent debt ors and "dead beats."' which it professes to , have prepared for print. Yet it might properly I be suspected that in this case the name of the terror-breeding association has been used with out authority to protect a lot of people who do not want their acknowledged short-comings to to be exposed. That kind of a regulating body i* not so much to be dreaded as one which has no motive for its excess* s other than a deter mination to make all m inkind conform to its peculiar notions of rectitude. The evil-doer who is trying to escape disgrace is much easier to catch than the fanatical moralist whose con duct is ordinarily that of the average citizen and who is eccentric only in the dark. California's eclipse of Tuesday was a great ?occese. and promises interesting scientific re ?ults. when ttie lessons of the observations have been filly learned. Japan's attempt at a total eclipse, the one immediately preceding that of January 1, lw9, was a disappointment and partial failure by reason of officious clouds. The new world affair went off better. Philadelphia statistic* show that the suicides Of the city during the year just closed reached the astonishing number of 99, more than three times as many as the homicides. The quiet ftnd self-restrained people of the City of Broth erly Love destroy their own lives rather than those of their neighbors." Perhaps the mo notony of life and of residence architecture causes them to grow weary, oh, so weary, and to wish that they were dead. Mr. Springer's amendment providing for a tingle presidential term ?f six years fails to in corporate Gov. Hill's suggestion of life seats in the Senate for ex-Presidents. The governor's delicate compliment to the ex-Presidents, among whom the present executive is soon to be counted, is not likely ever to take the sub stantial shape of a constitutional amendment. ?? ? The Mexicans are shocked and indignant ho estate an account of an imaginary revolntk-n at their capital has been printed in New "York. They wish it to be distinctly understood that they can revolute fast enough withont the aid of American newspaper imagination. ^ From the correspondents' gallery at the Capi tol to the speakership of the lower house of the Massachusetts legislature is something of a stride for a young man to make in little more than two years, but William E. Barrett, who need to represent the Boston A<teert*mr here, has made it. He was one of the youngest men on newspaper row when he left Washington in USk, bat he has evidently carried into politics Tftme spirit o< res tie as enterprise which cteriaed hie work in journalism.
