CogPggU Next Fall?
If the Fifty-eighth Congress spends two
months in extra session next fall will it be
able to rjip,that iPnk time off the regular
session next year? It. all depends. every
Congress begins witib"a determination to
get through}.tgit tt ork as speedily as
possible. There is a lively show of industry
for a few weeks, a great hurrying to dnd
fro, numerous conferences between leaders,
and then a'subsidence of heal and a settling
down to the regulation pace. Old plans are
abandoned and new ones adopted. Public
sentiment onEetfines'chages suddenly, and
a shift becomes .necessary to meet the
change. In other words, statesmen propose
and devetoprients dispose.
The next Hot4se shopld be able, like a
sternwheel steamboat, to start right off
and be ''under liehd ay in no time. The
speakerstip Jready ,settled. Mr. Cannon
will preside, and he now has in his hands
the list of members of the House. With
many of them he is well acquainted. About
the records of the new men he has abun
dant time in which to inform himself.
There should be no, dclky therefore as to
the committees. The full list might easily
be ready -for annotmeement the second day
of the session. And then to business.
The length of the session will be deter
mined of -course--by what is attempted by
the majority. If the standlatters have
their way, very little besides voting the
supplies- for running the government will
be accomplished. They are advising against
all mention'ot' tie" tariff. They consider
that for the,present enough has been done
on the question of trusts. They have only
in mind now piidssing the Aldrich bill and
lowering some- internal taxes and then
writing finis.
But 'the length of' the session is really
not the jpiportant.aatter to be considered.
It would be better for the republican party
to protract the session until August and
give tue acouptry t#e legislation demanded
than terminate it in May, with pressing
issues evaded. The tariff must at least be
discussed. It will come up of Its own force;
and once it is up the necessity for some
revision will be demonstrated. If revision
is denied; if the brewers and the distillers
show greater influence with the party lead
ers that" the men who subscribe to the
"Iowa idea," the presidential campaign in
the northwest will take on at a little later
period an interest which will cause the
standpattera to wonder.
The Insularity of Manhattan.
It is a common criticism of New York on
the part of the rest of the country that its
Inhabitants are too Insular to know or care
to know anything about other cities. This
charge has been not exactly resented by
the metropolitans, but has rather been ig
nored, as of no consequence. Indeed, some of
the most persistent and incurable New
Yorkers have joyously admitted the accu
sation, declaring that as long as one lives
in Manhattan it is not necessary to know
anything about other places. But this is
certainly not the sentiment today of Police
Inspector Brooks, who was yesterday de
posed as chief of the. New York detective
bureau because he had not been able to se
cure evidence against the gambling Qouses
of the big city. Having been asked by Com
missioner Greene why he had not obeyed
instructions to furnish such evidence by a
certain date, he replied voluminously, show
ing that his detectives, in order to gain ad
mittance to the establishments, had to pose
as western men, and had been too frequent
ly tripped by questions designed to reveal
their familiarity with the cities from which
they claim to come. It had been im
possible, in other words, to find a detective
on the staff who was well enough acquaint
ed with the "sporty" side of any western
city to fool the fraternity. Now it will
probably be-in 'order for the metropolitan
detective to take an immediate and complete
course in American geography, especially
municipal geography. Perhaps in conse
quence of this unfortunate experience the
average New Yorker may come to realise
that it Is worth while for business reasons
to know a little about the world beyond the
Hariem, North and East rivers.

WaaIi.gton and. Rom..
The following cable from Rome sho'W' a
strange misapprehension there as to church
and state in the United States:
"The situation with regard to the appoint
ment of Archbishop Ireland as cardinal is
unchanged. Personages of high authority
at the Vatican say that his nomination is
likely In two contingencies-as a reward
when the Philippine question Is satisfac
torily solved, or . the eve)t, fppis nomi
nation being asked for directl' or indirectly
by the supreme authoritytof. the United
"'Regarding the views of the apcstolic del
egate at Washington as to the wisdom of
such an appointment, the Vatican has al
ways instructed the apostolic delegates to
keep In touch with the trend of public opin
ion ever since Cardinal Satolli was at
Washington, when the Vatican. understood
that President Cleveland would view with
satisfaction the nomination' of Archbishop
For more than a decade the question of
an additional. caTdinal for the United States
has .been discussed. In this_couqtry. Every
now and then, too, the report has gained
circulation that Rome wav on-the -eve of
creating one. Arcltbishop Ireland's name
has figured in all of the speclition. Even
Protestants have expressed opinions favor
able to his promotion. He is an able prel
ate and a patriotic man, ad'd his popularity
has extended beyond the lines,qf his own
communion. He numbers among his friends
statesmen in both political partles,"lthough
his republicanism is of the robust variety.
But this feeling of admiration' for the
archbishop of St. Paul could ne'er take the
form of official action in his interests. No
President of the United States would, "di
rectly or indirectly, requedt'of the pope of
Rome the advancement of anly representa
tive of the Roman Catholic Church. No
more would he attempt to- Influence the
house of bishops in the Protestant Episco
pal Church or the Methodist Church. In
his office he does not know bishops, arch
bishops, apostolic delegates or cardinals.
His influence Is exerted solely within the
domain of matters of state. He 'Is the rep
resentative of all the people in affairs in
which all are interested alike. Church af
fairs are wholly apart from his functions.
The negotiations now in progress in the
Philippines between the church and the
state respecting the lands of the Spanish
friars have made no change in this broad
and general principle. That is an excep
tional case, and consequently is dealt with
in an exceptional way. But as soon as that
business is brought to a close, and the Eto
man Church takes up its duties in the
archipelago freed from all the embarrass
ments coming over from the Spanish
regime, the separation of church and state
in the islands will be as complete 'as it is
here in the 'United States, and wig remain
so. Catholics and Protestants will be at
perfect liberty, as they are in this country,
to work out religious ends, without inter
ference by the state or hamperings of any
kind from a political souce.
The Cleveland Boom.
The heart of ex-Gov. O'Ferrall of Vir
ginia is still true to Poli. That aggressive
democrat, who while a member of Congress
spoke so eloquently for Mr. Cleveland as
against the presidential aspirations of
David B. Hill, believes that the ex-Pr'esi
dent is the strongest man in the party and
favors him for next year's nomination.
Nor does he doubt Mr. Cleveland's willing
ness to run again. He points out of course
that it will be necessary to convince Mr.
Cleveland that the salvation of the party
and the country depends upon him. But
should that be difficult? The Cleveland
movement In 1892 took that form. The ex
President's admirers surrounded him and
explained his duty to him, 'and "she seen
it and he done It." Nor would he be un
reasonable now. The Cleveland boom
grows apace.
