The Crum Nwinnaati. It Is conceded that a majority of the Sen ate comadttee on commerce favor the con firmation of Dr. Cram. It is coneed that a majority %f the Senate will, if the oppor tunity is afforded, vote to comidrm. It is known that if the Senate fails to act the President will appoint Dr. Crum coector of the port of Charleston. The appointee will at oncd enter upon the duties of his office, and his nomination will be renewed to the Senate when it meets next winter. In such circumstances, why not call the roil at this special session and have done with the matter? The fight on Dr. Crum was made and lost at the White House. Opposition to the selection of a colored man for the place was vigorous, and was not wholly'conflned to democrats. There were some republicans who thought another chotee would be bet ter. The President did not decide hastily. but canvassed the situation in all of its bearings. The opposition was based upon the color of the applicant. An effort to shoir that Dr. Crum had betrayed his con stituents at the Minneapolis republican na tional convention in 1892 failed. At last. then, the President, being advised as to the applicant's good character and his capacity for the olice, sent in his nomination. He committed himself thoroughly on the sub ject. If we may. believe rumor, several republi can senators, after the adverse report of the commerce committee iast winter, wanted the President to withdraw the nomination. He declined, and he was right In declining. He was entitled to an expres sion by the full Senate; and he is entitled to such an expression now. Sooner or later. of course, he will get an expression. The Senate should record itself for or against every nomination submitted. The dit8culty about reaching a vote now lies with the democrats. They are opposed to the nomination, and have the power to prevent action. Senators are anxious to get away, and with the two treaties disposed of they could not easily be held here even if an attempt were made. But what Will be gained by refusing to vote on the Crum nomination at this session? Should it go over the question will have to be met at the next session, and everything promises success then for the President. South Car olina will not change her views about the nomination, nor will the President change his, and for this reason the sooner final action is taken in the case the better it will be for everybody concerned. The matter might be settled with one roll call. Secretary Moody's Cruise. The navy will probably not suffer at the hands of the next Congress as the result of the cruise in West Indian waters upon which Secretary Moody has just set out. He has among his guests Mr. Cannon. who will be the Speaker of the House; Mr. Hale, chairman of the Senate bommittee on naval affairs, and Mr. Foss, reasonably certain to succeed himself as chairman of the House committee on naval affairs. The cruise will last for several weeks, and we may be sure that naval affairs will be a popular topic of discussion. Looking out on those blue waters, and reflecting on Ameri can interests there and how necessary it is that they should be fully protected, these gentlemen are very likely to have their views heightened and broadened, and to re-, turn home firmer friends than ever of the policy of adding steadily and materially to the sea power of the United States. It is a good season of the year for the trip, and they are-certain to enjoy it. Nor will their reflections be confined to the situation in the West Indies. We must be strong on the water wherever our in terests Lie. We have a good deal to protect in the Pacific now, and It is increasing in Importance all the time. Hawaii. Guam and the Philippines form a long line, and It calls for a vigilant patrol We must have the ships, and they must he of thle latest design and the best quality. No others will answer. 14r if we should have to use them against an enemy, that enemy is certain himself to be well equipped for a fight. But it is becoming lees diffBcult all the time to secure from Congress the proper treatment of the navy. Public sentiment justifies liberal appropriations.- The people of the interior are as muchi alive as those on the coast to the requirements of the case. It is not necessary now that a man live within sight of the sea to appreciate what a navy is good for. The inlander a thousand miles from the shore reads with pride of what is going on afloat under the stars and stripes, and wants the country to rank with the best of the powers in . sea armament. It will cost money to take this position among the powers. The British estimates just published call for the largest amount ever asked by that government at one time 'for Its nery. The German emperor has put his figures high, and is personally interest tag himself in the campaigna. We have no .thought and no need of equaling Great Britain on the water, but we should be stronger in every way than Germany. .z I The czar will be wise to get rid of every vestige of serfdom before some author pro duees the Russian equivalent of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." President Castro has relapsed unnoted Into the comparatively tame occupation of suppressing a revolution. I I The Hall of Record. Ste. The government for many years has needed a Hall of Records for the safe storage of its mot v.able fies. Year after year the matter has been urged upon Congress by heads of departments and even by the Preskdent. There has been no sound reason for delay in'the premss, but while the mnatter was under consideration the great park commiission project was brought forward and the logical place for this building was clearlg sh~own to be within the mall-avenue triangle. Indeed such an Omplacement -had been repeatedly adva -csated by those .who had examined th z questton for the government even prior to the submission of the park commission's report. Yet in the light of these facts when ot the session just closed Congress proceeded to provide for a site for this building, in the face of the evident appropriate. ness of the mall-avenue aree for a building which should be located' a convenient din tance from all the departments it named a square west df the most westerly of the executive offices, the -Seter War and Navy buiding. Thus the site na.med Is not only Jaconvenient ad reginses noeses from the government bureas- but it is abumiate.y ott of harmony with the great plea for the slty's developeea).

A sudy of the-act itself. however, reveals the e..Uy of at lesst a bat In the proceednls until the absurdity of Ath selection of a site cam be sm .mssin tc Congress, leading perhaps to the fnal em. placement of the bedding in the mall avenae trianee. The act senda Me, as this point: -That the Secretary of the Treasury be And he hereby is authorized and directed in his discretion to purc&ase or cause: to AD taken for public use .by condemnation o otherwise, as a site for a Hall of :tecords etc." Then follows the technical deetption o: the square in question. Thus' it appears that the Secretary is given diacretin in the case, not to ahift the site to another place, buit to take this square or not to take it, as he may see At. Therefone the argu ments which lie against the emplacemment of the building in this out-of-the-way part appeal to his judgment and he Is entitled to consider them before he directs the pur *chase or condemnation of the square. It i to be hoped that he will go fully into the matter and study not only the facts relat ing to the Hall of Records itself, but the greater and moe important question of the grouping of public buildings, which has of late assumed such a degree of Import ance in the minds of the people. It will be a great pity if this member of the gov ernment's system of structures should be so placed as to break the artistic and scientific combination at the very outset 01 this new era of capital development. Mr. Foraker's Note of Warning. Senator Foraker sees, and promptly points out, the peril to his party of the In galls movement in Cincinnati. He addresses his fellow-republicans on the subjectt. "Bet ter," he tells them, in substance, "bear the mayor you have than fly to one you know not of." Will they heed him? Can the wis dom of Shakespeare be successfully applied to municipal buckeye politics? When Mr. Ingalls was first proposed for the mayoralty of Cincinnati on a citisens' ticket with non-partisan ends in view, The Star suggested the case of Mr. Cleveland and the opportunity be improved at Buf falo. The republicans of Buffalo who sup ported Mr. Cleveland for mayor had but the one aim of securing improved local conditions. They obtained those, but more besides. As it turned out, they helped make a democratic candidate for governor. Mr. Cleveland served so satisfactorily as mayor, that his party, in the campaign of 1882, put its state standard Into his hands. The republicans of New York who sup ported Mr. Cleveland for governor, or who sulked at home on election day, had but the one aim of rebuking the agencies by which Judge Folger had been nominated. They accomplished that, but more besides. As it turned out, they helped make a dem ocratic candidate for President. Mr. Cleve land served so satisfactorily as governor. that this party, in -the campaign of 1884, put its national standard into his hands. A tall oak, therefore, from this Buffalo acorn grew, and Mr. Foraker warns against any such planting in Cincinnati. His coun sel runs in this wise: "Mr. Ingalls is a good man. but we have a good man of our own. Reforms may be necessary in our local af fairs, but we can attend to them ourselves. Cincinnati is entitled to excellent govern ment, and she has received such at our hands. But if there be republicans who are not satisfied with the record, let them not despair of securing at home what they want. We strive to please. We do please, the greater part of the time. Be regular. and you'll be happy. Dispose of Mr. In galls now, and you'll not encounter him in any gubernatorial or presidential race." Mr. Foraker is an old and a very success ful campaigner, and Cincinnati is his -home. He lifts the mayoralty race thus Into na tional notice; and it will be followed with interest. In one sense this Is an off year in politics, but all of the maneuvers, in city or state, on both sides of the fence, east and west, are closely related to the great struggle appointed for next year. Diplomat and bmeineer,. I. Pierpont Morgan is a diplomat as well as a financier. Qa visiting the iCapitol yes terday had he conferred with senators of only one party he would have provoked a good deal of speculation. But as he saw both Mr. Gorman and Mr. Hanna we siay not hear more on the subject than the gen eral charge that he owns both parties and merely called to give a few orders. Had he failed to call on the President while in town it would have been construed as another notice that all capital is opposed t'o Mr' Roosevelt's nomination next year and is organizing to effect his overthrow. But as he spent half an hour with the President, and no loud talking was heard, and Mr. Morgan wore no scowl when he left the White House, a fair presumption .is that the call was without unhappy Incident of any kind. A Nebraska woman .is said to have com mnitted suicide because.- her literary efforts were not e'ecognized. After measuring up the Quality of some of the commercial suc ceases in book writing she should have re signed herself to fate with cheerfug self,. respect. If the President will look out of his win dow on egg-rolling day he will probably be convinced that there is no danger of a lack of first-class American youngsters. The dislikes of 'pedestrians for automo biles may- be molinied by the fact that the most serious accidents have occurred to men who were running machines. Sir' Thomas Lipton may be relied on to -be as good natured after -defeat as lie is san guine before the trial. Dr. Cram is rawaded as a mote or less unplasant political pellet which will' de Charleston -good. Waterbury*s .Bemeitoa.

It remains to be- seen whether Battimore has established Itself as a city -wttheft graft. or whether it has merely compelled the grafters to learn a new repertory of tricks.

Colombian statesmanship is In more or less danger of being swamped by a sudden accumulation of extraordinary responsibil ities. The Buffalo detectives show signs of giv ing up the publication of theories and de voting themselves to hard luck stories. I I All that remains 'for Senator Gorman to do Is to ascertain whether the democrats are amenable to leadership. SHOOTING STABS, Unconscious Egotism.
