Br* Tark OrScei Room 93. Trihiaa Baildlng. i- ? ? Tomorrow (Cbnatmas) being a legal holiday ao Stab will ba issued. Sortbaut Washington la |?ltisf a* thor oughly oat of petienoe with tho Baltimore and Ohio railroad a* South WuhinttoB ia with the Baltimore and Fot?mac. Northwest Washing Ira being piuohed al Una tfeis by tha policy ot lha railroads ia the frei?ht blockade ia mora interested Hum a?u*l in lha grievancee of tha rsUroail-afll;c<?d auctions. and 1* inclined to give to thaaa aBfivtantiM her active aympathj aad support. Tha railroad* by impartially ?hah lag ap all * sshington hare dona much to pradota tha much-desired community ot feeling and interact among tha Washington paopla, which, taking organised shape, ia so powerful a weapon, either for tha protection of a city or for tha accom plish m*nt of retaliatory measures. It often happen* that a# Mr*. Malaprop *ay*. there ia nothing ao conciliatinK aa severity; but the rongh handling to which tha railroads hare ?objected the people of the capital baa not, it ia believed, rendered them more aubmiaaive to the illegal practice* and unreasonable demands of theee corporations. Whatever conciliation has been accomplished by this severity is that which a common threat ha* caused among tha city'* jealoua section* and factions. Perhaps it might be wise for the railroads to change their tactics entirely and see what can be accom plished through an exchange of concessions. The people of this country have special rea son* for congratulatory rejoicing over a merry Christmas. Their prosperity, though modified in places by fire and flood, has been notable amid the gloom of other civilized peoples, and the devastations that have befallen por tions of the land hare irought out conspicu ously the inherent manhood of the nation. Oar political example has been followed by another American people, and now we have the satis faction of knowing that all autonomous Amer ica is republican. Christmas, 1889, throws its mantle of peace, good will and freedom over moch tha greater part of a hemisphere where little over one hundred years ago the name of king was spoken with bated breath. The work of the year in the moral vintage has not been inferior to tha rich yield* of former years. Altogether the people of the United States have reason to keep cheery hearts this Cbrist The lint number of Kate Fields Waihirxgion \ is now issued. The new publication is a twenty four page quarto, printed weekly. Its style is bright and dashing, and its advertising colnmns indicate that it enjoys a sound busineas back ing. The Star extend* the compliments of the season to its new neighbor and wishes it auo A permanent post office for the city will, if It be what it ought to be when we get it, oc cupy a whole building by itself. It i* evident that tha purchase and remodeling of an old or tha construction of a new edifice will have to be authorized by the present Congress. The ?ooner the better. The necessity is urgent. It ought also to be plain that the local post office, if it must have joint occupancy of a building with another government office or offices, should not be huddled into narrow quarters and made subordinate in its general arrange ment* or equipment* to any other office of the government?even to the great Department it self of which it is a part. Let it be remembered in this connection that the Washington post office receives the quarterly return* from all the other post officea throughout the United State*, that through it pa>se* every day vast tonnage of government mail matter of all kinds, and that in no sense can this great post office be re garded merely as a local office of local belong ing* and surroundings. If, however, it were merely local, and situated in any other city of 'iSO.UOO people in the United St ite*. it would have bean removed long ago from its discredit able quarters and provided with suitable equip ment aad accommodation*. The British have learned from the Russians the art of getting on with barbarous or semi barbarons people whom thev want to absorb ultimately. The German*, flushed with mili tary prestige In Europe, appear to need a lesson or two in thi* respect. The juxtaposition of interests and ambitious aim* of the two peoples in equatorial Africa is likely to produce friction in the near future. The British start with na tive sympathy on their side. Two experiment* in government a*ide from our own interest most the people of the United States. These are the hesitating efforts of Canada to decide what it wants, and the more defiuite aim* of Australia to ''get together." The feder d council of some of the Australian colonies is a feeble, tentative move ment, but there may be in it the "very body and spirit of the time*"?tho breath of a grander national life to come. Too much cannot be said in a city like Wash ington in behalf of the people's just and reason able demand for a greatly extended and im proved w*t?r aervice. Sot only is there necessity for more water for domestio use* but there is argent requirement for *nch service ia every square of the city as will enable the fire engines in the eveut of anything like a general conflagration to extinguish the flames. Give wisely. Give those things that ars needed to anpply so Tie want of the person re ceiving. Give in the true giving apirit of un selfishness. So much Christmas opportunity is loet in lack of thoughtfulnesa that these obvious truism* are not superfluous. If the press associations are correct 1 n their horoscope crowned Europe's hopes and fears cluster around puny Portugal. If England presses her too hard ia tbc Shir* matter and her radical* overthrow the monarchy Spain, Italy and the rest of Europe may alao be revolu tionised and set up republic*. Hence, the great German chancellor who pulls the wires of European politics cautions Lord Salisbury to go slow in the African imbroglio with Portu gal. ft* importance of the "impending crisis" is probably much exaggerated, but it is evident that recent events have not decreased tha un easiness which ia said to afflict the head of him wears a crown. The authoritative denial that ex-Judge Cooley, president of the interstate eoaameroe eraleiisaiim, intends to resign gives great sat* ?faction to a public which has long admired his character and abilities. Portugal and England quarrel over a small matter of African territory of four hundred thousand square miles which belongs te ?either, but to which the former has a prior slaim of discovery. Portugal has been gunning With gatling* out there aad aeems indisposed to concede such rights as she has to her colossal rival and former ally. England is not ia the jMfcit, since the middle of last century, of per mitting Utile nations to stand in tha way of her "eivUlsing" processes. The temporary hitch over the electric light, lag of Sew York will soon be a thing ot the peek, aad that city will thea have solved a prob lem with witiefc ska is mot* competent to deal than with historical memorials.
