K inr.an Catholic Church and one of in ter^ to the I'nlted States. This govern ment will not lie asked to make a sugges tion on the subject, and could not afford to | m iko one if asked, bat It is clear enough that the prelate chosen should be a man of ability and one especially well Informed as to American Institution* and the purposes tint underlie them as respects the freedom of religious worship. He need not for a m ?m>T.t 1 >se sight of the Interests of his ! chor'-h while exerting himself to the ut most to bring to an end the difficulties gr .wing out of the question of the Spanish friars and 'heir holdings in the archipelago. Presumably an Italian will be selected. And yet if such should be the case, many eminent American Catholics will, -without np^n protest, question the wisdom of the | H-l-'tton American-like. they will ask th-m.-eh. m. Why not have applied the prin ciple ..f h >me rule? Why not have chosen j an Ameri in prelate of distinction? There j ar> rainy strong men in the church in 1 Aro-ri i. whose names instantly suggest ? th-mselv- s i:i the connection. They are ac credited with the direction of much of the J w.>rk whi'h h is built tip their communion \ to substantia proportions in the T'nited 8ti(?3. mi whit is to be done in the Phi!

Bishop Sbarrettl of C'uha started on a aji?.-iil mNsion to the Philippines before th-* visit of Judge Taft to ltome was <le oi 1?1 upon: out, after that, he was halted J In this < >untry. and he is still here. It is ] not known how these changes in the situa tion will ff.-.-t his appointment. He is an Italian. and before going to Cuba was a mmler of th-* official household here of th an lstoll ? delegate t,? th.. ("ni ed States.

He ia an everyday states man himself, and assumes that the every day subjects are strongest with everyday citizens Hence he has everyday plans for building up a party which shall acknowl edge h.i? wisdom and do his biddings. Usteo to his program: V\ c have appointed a c immlttee. and just lh* dates can be fixed we are fkl f ?;ve an outing for the women and children of the district. We are going to i ? Just as many of the women and chll cln hfr Vr democrats of this district mi^ii TT ^ at? for There won't be anv po Mtlca! | ?es ab-,ut that outing, either.

No*- observe. New York is a pivotal state. The democracy cannot elect its pres idential candidate in l'JW without New York's electoral vote. The democratic atrength is In the city, and that at present Is much Impaired. Mr. Devery Is seeking to build it up. Every little helps. Mr. Cleveland carried the state, in 1884 by less than twelve hundred votes. A close con test In 1904 seems unlikely, but no one can tell what changes may take place between | now and then. At any rate Mr. Devery is | going to work with a will, and as If the ! vote of his district might turn the scale, i And If that vote should turn the scale, not | trusts, not tariffs, not cheap money, nor | Imperialism have shaped history, but the i [ chasin' after greased pigs, the climbin' of greased poles, and the ability to run while | clothed in sacks. For of course the suc cess of these outings given by Mr. Devery will tell on the muster roll of his organiza tion. and that in turn will tell at the ballot ; box. This sort of thing does not conduce to pride, but it should to wisdom. It Is a good thing now and then to look at beginnings, and thus temper our exaltation. Maybe had General Bragg been permitted to read the Devery prospectus he would not have so limited the capacity of a real artist In working up pigs' talis. Washington's Hotels. No surer evidence of the rapid growth of ! Washington as a center of American inter est could possibly be had than the develop ment of the local hotel business during the past few years. There is an Increased de mand not only for more room for the vi3 j itors to the capital, but for better accom | modations. for greater luxury, for finer ap ; pointments. For many years Washington | suffered by comparison in this particular with other cities. The hotels here were ex ( ceilent. but were not moderniy equipped. The reason was sufficient. The fluctuations i of the travel at times left the city com paratively deserted, making it unprofitable to maintain costly establishments the year i around. But the character of the travel has undeniably changed. Washington is not shunned in the hot season as it once was. Tourists do not postpone their pil grimages to the seat of government bc ? cause nf the temperatures. Wise munici pal administration and judicious advertis ing of the comforts of the capital in mid summer have persuaded the country that this is not as unpleasant a town as It has been represented by some to be. Then, too, the course of the public business has con siderably changed and there is more activ ity here when Congress is not In session. So that It has become feasible for hotel managers to operate large establishments on a libeial scale and profit handsomely de spite the comparative shrinkage in the business for a short period. Thus the city Is now well equipped with handsome and thoroughly modern hostelries. In addition to several of this character which are al ready in operation reports circulate of the probable erection at an early date of an other of the same class in a commanding location. It is evident that the tendency has not yet run its course and that the de mand for first-class hotel accommodations has not been met. It is assured that as the hotel facilities increase the travel will keep pace, for these two factors operate in turn as cause an 1 cfTect. In addition to the great volume of transient visitation. Wash ington continues to grow at a gratifying rate as a residence city and year after year costly new homes are constructed here by wealthy men who desire to live in the at mosphere of art, literature, politics and cr.mf'.rt which surrounds the capital. The homes are keeping pace with the hotels. A Hot Time. yesterday's Intense heat was fortunately ' broken suddenly by a refreshing if some what violent pair of thunder storms, which I caused a marked drop in the temperature j and eased the .-train, then becoming seri ous. Throughou' the week the thermom ! eter had been steadily rising, with a ; strange d.-op on Thursday of several de grees. Yesterday the maximum of V.' was reached at 'J o'clock, early enough to have b- en exceeded later had it not been for the advent of the storms. The rain and cold winds arrived just In time to carry out the apparently settled policy of the elements this season, which has not yet aj proached last year's record for sustained scorching. For a few days humanity can stand temperatures in the nineties. But I after a week of uninterrupted baking, with out rains oi cooling breezes, nerves and bodies b^gin to weaken under the strain | and collapses occur. So far this year the breaking point has not been reached and the season's record of prostrations is yet to be written. The rains did other good thin to cool ofT the sweltering popula tion. In the neighboring country the crops have been seriously in need of moist lire for some time and yesterday's precipitation gladdened the hearts of the farmers. The rural regions did not suffer in general from the violence of the second storm, which had a br. akir.g force sufficient at one time to threaten serious damage to the city. ?Sara Bernhardt has attacked "Hamlet" and now talks of appearing as "Romeo." It .Shakespeare had been a Frenchman, ; | S ira would perhaps have f?'^t enough re- j -P?-ct for him to .abstain from these jokes. ! Japan's minister of finance solemnly de clares that this country is doing too much i business on borrowed capital. And it Is n >t | so long ago that this country looked on Japan wi'h patronizing toleration! ?? Hetty Green attracted no attention while [ at Oyster Bay. People were so engrossed j with the President that the liberality of Hetty's tips to the bell boys did ?ot cause j a ripple of curiosity. The Texas democrats wholly overlooked free silver. But Mr. Bryan will scarcely have the temerity to allude to their con duct as "unwarranted." As a victim of his own inflammatory lan guage Genera'. Jake Smith is entitled to a telegram of sympathy from General Kagan. Mr. Gates' experience In cornering corn shows that the Napoleon of finance busi ness is r.ot as easy as It used to be. Washington and the Thieves. Yesterday's Issue of The Star contained an article on the comparative Immunity of Washington from burglars and their ilk which it would be desirable to circulate freely among that light-fingered and soft treading gentry. Already the capital has acquired a "bad reputation" among the thieves as a city where not only Is a thief quickly spotted but where he cannot rely upon the "great graft" to secure his release. It Is a comfort to reflect that the Washing ton policemen are not tainted with suspicion as to their honesty In the performance ot duty. There is no question in the public mind that the police-protected fence is to day a local stranger. There are compara tively few mysterious burglaries. So un usual Is it for a maurauder or a murderer to escape the police that such a case be comes celebrated for a long period. What other city in the United States would have remembered a Dorsey Foultz so long a time as that worthy Is recalled In Washington? This alone speaks eloquently of the local prestige of the police and the general ef ficiency of that force In the capture of mis creants. Yet Washington might easily be come a Mecca for the law-breakers and evil doers with a police force less highly organ ized and honestly maintained. Visited at Intervals by last crowds, with lndividuall tirt almost completely wiped out In the great surge of persons, the chances for the thieves to swarm here and do their work comparatively unmolested would seem to be excellent. Yet such is not the case. The success of the local detectives and police men in identifying even new-comers in the ranks of the artful dodgers, the second story men and the housebreakers is due largely of course to the close co-operation of the police authorities of all the large cities and the constant exchange of Inform ation and means of identification. It Indi cates what might be done even in a great community such as New York, where the police means are much larger than they are here, but where the percentage of un punished crime is very much higher. ? ? ? Saturday Half-Holidays. The opinion of the District's counsel, Mr. Duvall. on the subject of the Saturday half holiday, printed in another part of The Star today, establishes a local legal opinion which will doubtless be welcomed by the employes of the District government and gratefully regarded by those of the execu tive departments. Of course Mr. Duvall's decision as to the meaning of the new code amendment, which declares all Saturdays after twelve o'clock noon to be legal-holi days "for all purposes," does not enlarge the privileges of the department clerks, yet It indicates a trend of Interpretation which may later be followed by the government's legal authorities. The present practice Is to close the executive offices on Saturdays at three o'clock during the heated term, but if this code amendment should be construed as having the effect which Mr. Duvall con ceives. it will close every government office at noon on Saturday throughout the entire year. The merchants of Washington have very generally adopted the early closing movement in the summer season. Most of them draw their blinds and lock their doors at five o'clock on other days than Saturday, on which day they close at one o'clock. Thus Washington is rapidly acquiring the half-Saturday habit. During the busy months of autumn, winter and spring of course the merchants would not follow the Saturday half-holiday custom, but on the contrary would presumably profit greatly from It. keeping their stores open until late on that night and thus reaping the ad vantage of the liberation of a large part of the population of the District from em ployment for half of the day. When American capital secures absolute control of the foreign markets the same prices that Americans pay will no doubt be charged. But there will be small satisfac tion In that. I.ondon society receives our diplomats and millionaires with all courtesy. But in Its heart it would rather see desperado Tracy, whom many Britons regard as a typical American. Kven the most startling homicide sounds like a story you had heard somewhere be fore. after It has gone through the hack neyed routine of sensational journalism. ? ? ? ?-?

"Do you mean to tell me that you are going to abandon your life of leisure and re-embark in active business?" "That is what I am going to do." an swered Mr. Ctimrox. "I've got to find some excuse for not going to grand opera in the winter and to European art galleries In the summer." Reciprocity. "Araminta. run over to the next-door neighbor and see if you can't borrow some dishes." "But, mah, we don't need any dishes." "That doesn't make any difference. They've been looking over our furniture, from th? wash wringer to the sewing ma chine. It's about time we took our turn at inspecting their good? and chattels, with a view to determining their social status." The Thermometer. These figures play us sorry tricks. The summer would be fine If it were only Grt, Instead uf 'JO. A Man of the Present. "I suppose you would like to send your name down to posterity as one of the lead ers of your time." "No," answered Senator Sorghum. "I'm not worrying over what posterity thinks of me. Posterity hasn't any vote in my dis trict." The Story of a Criminal. He was a desperado and he wore a flannel shirt. lli.s head was closely shaven and he always shot to hurt: He had a deep antipathy to all his fellow men. Yes. even to the sympathetic warden of the pen. They caught him and they put him where temotatlon couldn't come; Thev told him to hang up his hat and make himself "to hum;" They bought him striped clothing and they showed him to a cell Which was bigger than a bed room in the average hotel. Thev put him in a bath tub to luxuriously lave; They nave him. complimentary, a hair cut ard a shave; Thev gave him magazines to read, and should he thus aspire. On Sundav they would let him lead the singing in the choir. Now. eentlc reader, what did this ungrate ful varmint do? His keeuer in the prison he discourteously slew; He walked along a pathway marked by homicidal gore, And to show his lack of gratitude, he even slammed the door. And the officials shook their heads in con sternation grave; Thev couldn't understand how any one could thus behave. And then they vowed a solemn vow, and vowed it o'er and o'er. That he should never come inside their prison any more. And when he had to hustle to acquire his dally bread. Instead of being cherished and gratuitously fed. He'd think about those happy days, so free from care and pain. And wish that he was safely back In prison once again. ?? ? Cuba's Choice. From the Boston Transcript.
