F. B. Notes, Treasurer Evening Star Newspaper Co. Sworn to and subscribed before me this eighteenth day of February. A. D. 1889. John T. C. Clam. Notary Public. The proteat against the importation of poli ticians from the states to fill prevent and future vacancies in the District Supreme Court is con strued in some quarters, it it asserted, as an attack upon the present beach, tending to strain relations between the judge* and the protesting bar and public. The Stab does not believe that the protest was intended to reflect at all npon the present judges.?most certainly it was not so intended so far as The Star is concerned.? and it does not believe that any each result as that suggested will follow. All the present judges successfully ran the gauntlet of whatever criticism there was to level against them when they were nominated and con firmed. The Star does not believe that any one of them after taking office and winning the respect of the community by the manner in which he has for years performed his duties will be so unreasonable as to take offense at the general demand thst the District bar be no longer slighted in local judicial appointments. It cannot be that the fact of outside appoint ments in the past renders it a contempt of court to ask for local appointments in the future. Our present judges, wherever they originally hailed from, are now naturalized and accli mated in the District, and as citizens and resi dent* they will doubtless approve, rather than frown upon, the idea of encouraging a home in dustry. and of securing the best service for the District by selecting their future colleagues from the able local bar. There is to be very little terrapin in the next administration. So far as the cabinet is known there isn't a man in it. except Mr. Blaine, who is presumed to kuow pretty much everything, who can tell "tar'pin" from quahog. much less cook the toothsome stew. Mr. Blaine can doubt less pepper a blue fish about right. Mr. Windom can broil a catfish steak. Lawyer Miller can possibly skin a bnllhead fresh from the crystal depths of the Wabash. John Wanamaker may be able to advise Gen. Harrison on canvas backs. and Uncle Jere Kusk can give points on brook trout and prairie chickens. But there will be nobody to represent the delicious ter rapin in the next cabinet. Even the White House chef is to come from the heart of the wild and woolly west. Think of Chicago river and terrapin! Ugh! A large part of a fourteen-story building in the center of Chicago's finest business district has fallen very much as the tower of the Cove nant church fell last summer. The architects, contractors and inspectors have begun their explanations, and the great municipal prob lem of the age is ag-iin at the front. Why should any building be fourteen stories high in this country? We have in nearly all our larger cities fairly good systems of rapid transit and the conditions are excep tional where there is not room for expansion withont building structures so high. The growth of no American city has been so great as to justify the crime of building a 14-story building. Public opinion needs to be forced to declare against this tendency at once. Human life seems to be of no value at all to ambitious landlords, who pile story on story to add to mere yearly rentals. A few years ago a seven-story build ing was exceptional. Now ten stories may be seen commonly in any city. In the largest cities there are a number of apartment struct ure* sixteen stories in height. If it is possible to build such caravansaries and pack them with human beings profitably there will be no limit to the ambition of builders. We shall have twenty and twenty-four-story apartment houses?buildings so high that to live on the top floor will be quite like a residence in the suburbs. The statue of Cass unveiled to-day in statuary hall is the tribute of Michigan to a man whose name is the most famous in her annals. He was a pioneer carrying the authority of the national government into the far west among Indian tribes, and establishing over an expanse of territory now comprising several large states an administration government, indelible traces of which are still to be seen. He was trusted by Jackson and by Harrison, by friends and foes, for he was a man of sterling character, brave, and without reproach. He maintained the dignity of his country in war and in diplo macy with equal courage and success. In ex treme old ago. as fratricidal war came on. he gave his voice and example nuhesitatingly to the cause of union and freedom. There is re ciprocal honor for Michigan and Casa in the statue unveiled to-day. Kenna is taking a very long shot, but the game is yet worth tho powder. One incorrigi ble malcontent stands out against him and ?takes it possible for the republicans to elect Goff by getting one democrat, or by a compro mise elect Henry E. Davis to the Senate an d (Jen. Goff to the West Virginia governorship. There will be forty-tliree stars on the flag when the omnibus bill becomes a law. The color* will look like the milky way when all the state* get in.
