WASHINGTON: Tlll'HMDtr .Iftiiuarr lo. issn. c HtoHv N> m>a.. MNM 1 111: t.VKMX- *TAR has the fallmt I .?<-*! < ir< alHlioB nf may N(*<|np?r in the U arid, nad u u Ad* rrttoiuc .Medium is worth ????re than all the other |ia|irr> paMinhed la W aahintfton. If hitherto an extra session ha? not seemed probable, it certainly does now. The present session ?? nearly half gone. and. as usuhI. the latter half is likely to be wasted in filibuster ing. This determines for Gen. Harrison what be was unwilling to decide for himself. He will be obliged to enter on the first months of his administration with the Senators and Repre sentatives of the Fifty-first Congress all present in Washington and available for the omnivorous ru-)h of office-seekers, who will harass him by letter and in person for many months after the 4th of March. Added to this, there are indica tions that it will be the policy of democrats holding offices not embraced under the civil service rnles to resign with great dispatch after the inauguration. The object alleged is that by this course a double party ndvantagn will be gained. Gen. Harrison will be em barrassed and few offices will be left to dispense in legislative campaigns next year affecting the majority in the Senate. From every point of consideration it is appar ent that the incoming administration is not to enjoy any smoother sailing than I*resident Cleveland had four years ago. Human nature and politicians are forever the Mine. Upon bim and his cabinet will devolve work a thou sand times harder than the day laborer under goes. and their return for it will be ouly further labor and further embarrassment In these premises it is just the time for wise men in the republican party to take counsel of Mr. Mc Kinley's resolution in regard to his cabinet prospects. He declines to be a candidate, and begs that his friend* will not embarrass the President-elect by urging his name. Instead of pressing every favorite son the republicans in the various states should hold them back and leave Oen. Harrison free to act with his accustomed clear-headedness. More than ever after the inauguration a similar policy should be followed in regard to minor offices. The cyclone which tore across the country from Ohio to the seaboard and did such fearful havoc in Reading. Pa., is the worst storm that has yet visited the Atlantic slope. Compared with it the storm in Ohio and West Virginia last August, or the Virginia cyclone of 1887, were trifles. There was great loss of life and property in those disasters, and for the time they seemed all that could occur in the way of storm terrors. But yesterday's cyclone ex ceeded in its casualties all known storms on the At!antic coast. The old notion that the cyclone was indigenous to the great west must be abandoned. With the exception of the cyclones at Sauk Center. Minn., and Mt. Vernon, 111., all the great wind storms have oc curred during the past two years in the Alle ghenies or east of them. The theory has been that Wisconsin. Iowa. Minnesota, and Dakota were in a belt of country lying between the cir cumferences of two great storm orbits, one having its center in the Antilles, the other in the Arctic regions, and that conflict of the opposing circumferential currents of air caused the frequent cyclonic storms in that northwestern region. If that be true, what can be said of the preva lence of cyclonic storms in the Ohio and Penn sylvania belt? There must be a shifting of mighty conditions which may in the course of a few years make the east the home and prey of cyclones rather than the west, their sup posed habitat. The signal service bureau in its commendable study of tornadoes has done excellent work and was able to make a predic tion of yesterday's storm that, promptly dis tributed over the threatened region, must have saved many human lives. What did happen i beyond science to foretelL At this distance the war of words between Sir Robert Morier. England's minister to Rus sia. and Herbert Bismarck seems like a very undiplomatic controversy to be waged by diplo mats. Sir Robert was British minister at Ber lin during the Franco-Prussian war. The Bis marcks have always disliked him and were only too glad to give credence to the story that Sir Robert furnished secret military informa tion. obtained from the Empress Augusta when he met her at Homburg. to the French. Sir Robert was easily able to disprove the story. He was not at Homburg at the time named; the empress was not there. German officers who were said to have carried the secret in formation say there was not such intelligence delivered to the empress at the time named. So. on all accounts. Morier could not have com mitted the breach imputed td him. Beyond these specific denials his record for thirty rears as a scholar and gentleman should have protected him. But instead of remonstrating with the German chancellor and his son through Sir Edmund Malet. the present British minister at Berlin. Morier wrote directly to Herbert Bis march making a hot denial that amounted to an accusation and a demand for redress. Aj>ol ogy and public reparation were by this course obstinately postponed, but at last there is a prospect of quiet and the Morier affair is on its way to join the Mackenzie incident in oblivion. The Bismarcks have displayed even greater prejudice, impulsiveness and temper in the matter than Morier. and the collapse and with drawal of the charges against the latter and of the Oeffcken prosecution for publication of the late emperor's diary will be among the most mortifying reminiscences of the hot-headed English-hating Bismarcks. The approval by Congress of the six-million dollar plan for the new congressional library building is asked by a joint resolution now pending. Every consideration of wisdom and genuine economy favors the expenditure of this amount of money upon the plan favored by Gen. Casey. There are indications that no ahort-sighted op]>oeition to the resolution will bo made in the House. The Senate is sure to approve. A vigorous and timely presentation of the subject for consideration is probably all that is required. But in the Hons*, to secure the opportunity for action on a measure is, for the present, of itself a serious requirement, and no friend in that body of the project of a creditable national library can afford to be ne glectful of the matter. If ever in our history a navy was a necessity h is just now. Hayti, Samoa, the Canadian fishing banks and the Isthmus of Panama all require watching at once, and the number of available vessels for these several diverse de tails is limited. The new cruisers will not be te shape for service for some time to come. Meantime wooden ships that are the laughing stock of other countries are our chief depend ence. With the likelihood of some one of these little insular quarrels leading to a serious rupt nre with some one or all of the great European powers, the reflection might come too late that the temerity of the United States in diplo matic relations waa hardly justified by its ability to take care of itself in the arbi trament of war. IfCopyright by indirection under the postal laws to to be brought to a test by the Harpers. They have complained to the Post-Office de partment that Canadian book and newsmen are sending into the United States a periodical containing a picture produced in Harper'i WeMy and copyrighted, and the Postmaster General has proscribed the foreign paper from passage in the United States mails. The law justifies this course, and although the remedy to a roundabout one, it to to be tried thoroughly. Oen. Weaver to a dramatic figure these days. Like the swan that furnishes the dirge for hto own funeral the general proposes to be musi cal as long as he may.
