Up to the Senate.
Adopting a popular ph ase, It may be
?aid that everything now .s up to the Sen
ate. It Is for that body 10 say whether the
ecurton shall he long or snort, barren or
full of good works. When the magnitude
and importance of the measures are consid
ered. the House has m ide extraordinary
progriss The tlrst month of the session?
1 )ii t>ir.her hardly coun<s -wl.l have wit
nessed the disposition of the three leading
bills of the day. Statehood and the Philip
pine tariff are in the Senate's hands, and
railroad rate legislation will go through
tl.e House practically w thout ohjectlon.
We often hear the House criticised as act
ing under the party whip and spur. It is
no longer, wo are told, a deliberative body.
This criticism, whatever there may be In it,
dues not apply in these cases. Both the
Philippine tariff bill and the statehood bill
were as fully discussed as the circum
stances required. Congress and the coun
try were familiar with both subjects. It
was not like taking a new quest'on and try
ing it out in tihe first tires of debate. Nor
Is t he railroad rate question now coming on
to be heard at all new. That has had a
jiretiy thorough threshing out, and no
mcrr.ibt r of either house of Congress Is with
out the information to vote on It so far as
the principle of the measure is concerned
In taking these measures from the House,
therefore, the Senate will not fee Justified
Jn appraising them ss half-baked responses
to popular clamor, and in feeling a call to
defeat them, or mangle them with amend
ments designed to make them useless in
application. They are not. of course, sacro
sanct as passed by the House, and the
Senate has its right to an opinion as to nil
of them, but the country, as seldom before,
will watch the exercise of that right with
the keenest eye and most critical judgment.
We may wave aside the popular prejudices
against the Senate. The talk that the body
ought to be abolished is either jest or im
becility. Neither is the charge of value
that the whole body Is absolutely under the
thumbs of corporation influences. Nor does
that stereotyped sigh for the good old days
wiien there were giants In the Senate count
for anything among people of Information
and reflection. But the people are asking
a square deal from the Senate now, and
will be unusually critical of what it may
present in response to their wishes on the
leading issues of the day at present be
fore it.
Bigelow's Money Challenge.
The putting up of a thousand dollars by
Poultney Bigelow In defense of his reputa
tion for truth and veracity will cause
mingled feelings, but mirth in the end will
triumph. "I would not begrudge a hundred
dollars eaSh if 1 could sing like that." said
a young woman from Podunk after hearing
Patti for tlie first time. Although he says
the sum is large for him. a thousand dollars
would be but a trifle if by paying It Mr.
Bigelow could remove the contempt and the
odium that now attach to his name a3 tiie
result of his Panama exploit.
But tii ' man Is shuffling. He tries to put
himself on a par with newsgathercrs who
prote ? the sources of their information.
That :s not the point in his case. The point la
that Ids article as published gave out a
ra il ally misleading impression. He appear
ed as on.- who had personally inspected the
conditions he desuribed and knew in that,
w iy whereof he spoke. One got the idea
that lie had spent time and money In the
cause of truth, and now stood impregnable
lu that armor. As a matter of fact he was
on the isthmus less than thirty hours?ar
rived an I departed on the same ship?and
had not the time while there to verify or
disprove a tithe of the yarns with which he
had been stuffed.
of course Air Bigelow had heard a good
many things derogatory of the canal man
agement and descriptive of terrible things
eaid to exist on the Isthmus. They have
been floating around in newspapers for
mouths. But the difference between Mr.
Bigelow and the men who were thus at
tacking the canal and the administration
was that they did not pretend to speak from
a thorough personal inspection. Their de
liverances were not challenged officially be
cause ev rybody knew that they represent
ed only the gatherings up and the plecings
together of tittle-tattle here, there, and
yonder Mr. Bigelow. on the other hand,
was that careful and painstaking spirit who
l.ad proved all things, and wajj holding fast
to that which was good.
What the country really wishes to learn
from tins fly-by-night investigator is the
pecret. If secret there may be. of his con
nection with this matter. Two publications
declined l is story, and the one that ac
cepted it could not have paid him for it a
greut deal more than the amount of his
passage money to Colon and back. In exe
cuting his mission, was Mr. Bigelow sim
ply working for his health?

The New Parliament.
With the exception of about nine constit
uencies all the parliamentary elections in
Great Britain and Ireland have been held,
with the result of putting the liberal party
lu iiower with one of the heaviest ministe
rial majorities ever recorded in the British
legislature. When the elections opened it
was thought that the liberals might, with
the aid of the labor vote and the co-opera
tion of the Irish nationalists, hold a suffi
cient margin over the unionists to give Sir
Campbell-Bannerman a fairly secure lease
of office. No one looked for the tremendous
((round swell of revolt which followed. Tha
first day of the balloting demonstrated that
forces were at work which no man had
foreseen. Liberal candidates were elected
Over unionists on ail sides, and one of the
first of the former ministerialists to go
down was Mr. Balfour, the prime minister.
Who had just, as it was supposed, executed
& clever cOup by retiring In favor of the
liberal leader on the eve of a general elec
tion. From that day the tide rose higher
pnd higher. The labor vote was thrown sol
idly for either the liberal candidates or for
the laborlt.es who had been put In nomina
tion. But not for several days was there
assurance that Sir Campbell-Bannerman
Would have a clear majority. As the results
Tlow stand, with these nine districts yet to
Vote, the liberals have 378 members in their
f>wn name, aa against 154 unionists, 84 na
tionalists and 45 laborltes. Assuming that
fell the liberals are free to act directly with
the premier on all questions, regardless of
their obligations to the labor voters who
contributed to their success, the ministry
has at this time a majority of 06 over all,
and. counting In the Jaborltcs and the na
tionalists, a majority of 353, a stupendous
Stripped of their loaders?some of whom,
however, may yet return to parliament
through the retirement of the holders of
sure unionist seats?and relegated to
the rank of a virtually hopeless mi
nority. the former ministerial party
will ofTer but a sorry showing In
parliament when It reassembles next
month. It will not even be united on
the pr!>me Issue of the time, that of the tar
iff. Some of the unionists have been re
turned on free trade platforms, while oth
ers have been elected as protectionists. On
tho other hand, It Is believed that the prac
tically solid liberal party stands for a con
tinuation of the free-trade policy. It Is ex
pected that early In tho session the pres
sure of the laborlte allies of the ministry
for legislation to meet the demands of the
workingmen will be felt, and great curios
ity is evinced as to the attitude the premier
will take on these questions. which may
constitute the chief Item of the ministry's
budget of troubles. Meanwhile the home
rule demand will be simultaneously voiced.
The Irish nationalists are stronger in this
parliament than for many years. 1*hey have
a solid organisation and a simple program.
With more than half as many members as
the late ministerial party can muster in the
house, they will be in a position, notwith
standing the heavy majority of the liberals,
to cause annoyance If their leaders are not
placated early in the session.
King Christian of Denmark.
Christian IX of Denmark, whose death Is
announced today by cable, was the "grand
old man" of European royalty. He had
come to he known as the "father-in-law of
Europe." so numerous are the titles of high
station borne by his children. One son is
King of Greece; one daughter is queen con
sort of England: another daughter is em
press dowager of Russia: a grandson Is
Czar of Russia and another is King of Nor
way; a daughter is Duchess of Cumberland;
a granddaughter is wife of the Prince of
Sweden, whose right to accession ranks
next to that of the crown prince. Other
sor8 and daughters and grandchildren have
married into the royal and princely families
of Germany until it Is difficult to trace the
relationships of the members of this inter
esting group of men and women. The fam
ily reunions at Copenhagen, with sometimes
half a hundred present, of all ages, have
for years been regarded as among the
most extraordinary gatherings in history,
considering the influence wielded by the
offspring of King Christian in the manage
ment of the affairs of the old world.
Christian IX was not in the direct line of
succession to the Danish throne. He was
not himself connected with the house of
Oldenburg, which had reigned uninter
ruptedly since the accession of Christian I
In 1448. In 1852 the powers of Europe took
cognizance of the fact that Frederik VII.
the reigning Kinjj of Denmark, was with
out direct heirs and that with his death
the succession would lapse. Prince Chris
tian of Schle.swig - IIolst'Mn - Sonderburg -
Glucksburg had married Princess Louise of
Hesse-Cassel. niece of Christian VIII of
Denmark, predecessor of Frederik VII,
and upon him the choice of the powers fell.
A treaty was signed in May, 1S52, to this
effect, and King Frederik a year later
signed a formal act of the Danish d et rati
fying the choice. Frederik VII died Novem
ber 15, 1863, and Christian IX ascended the
throne, passing from comparative poverty
?for the soions of princely houses are not
supplied overabundantly with cash?to a
position of affluence and power. It is re
lated that when word was received by
Prince Christian, early In 1863, that his eld
est laughter, Alexandra, had been selected
as the wife of the Prince of Wales the
family was living in a very modest house
in Copenhagen, with so small a margin over
their actual needs that the wife and daugh
ters managed their own dressmaking.
The life of Christian IX has been whole
some and noble. He and his wife were
factors of the greatest moral Influence in
Europe. They did not countenance im
morality in any form. Their private family
arrangements were simple and a wholesome
home atmosphere pervaded all their of
ficial residences. In councils of state
Christian strove for th'e betterment of his
people, and "in his quiet way he exerted an
influence for peace between the powers,
whose courts were brought into such close
personal relations with his own. He was
the monarch of the longest reign in Europe
at the time of his death, hte occupation of
the throne of Denmark exceeding that ot
Leopold of Belgium by two years. He was
eighty-eight years of age, having acceded
to the throne at the age of forty-five.
Robert R. Hitt.
The country, and his party particularly,
will lose by the retirement of Mr. Hltt
from Congress. His place in the House
for some years has been among the lead
ers. and his work of great value. As an
authority on questions relating to our for
eign policies he has helped shape much
important legislation, and as chairman of
the House foreign affairs committee he
has made a distinct Impression on his
times. The mention of his name in con
nection with the vice presidency in 1004
received most respectful consideration,
and at any time these dozen years past
his appointment to the office of Secretary
of State would have been considered ex
cellent. Mr. Hitt's health is not robust,
but there may be other work for him to
do, and his re-appearance in another field
of public usefulness would be welcomed
by everybody.

The Wire-Wrapped Gun.
At the government proving grounds on
Sandy Hook the other day a new six-inch
wire-wrapped gun was tested, with results
that have greatly pleased the ordnance
experts of the military service. A projec
tile weighing 100 pounds, propelled by 72V4
pounds of smokeless powder, was given a
muzzle velocity of 3.410 feet a second, the
highest ever scored by a weapon of the
dimensions of this piece. Unscientific ob
servers are most surely impressed by com
parisons, and the most effective commen
tary on this achievement Is the fact that
during the civil war the highest initial or
muzzle velocity scored by any cannon then
In use was about 1,500 feet a second. Thus
In some forty years the ordnance makers
5have advanced more than 100 per cent In
the matter of velocity, which Is the prime
test of artillery practice. It Is of couflke
to be understood that the mussle of velocity
Is determined dome what by the caliber and
length of the gun, so that it may be for
general purposes assumed that a twelve
inch >v Ire-wound gun, put to similar
would score an even higher velocity than,
that Jnst recorded in the case of the six
Inch gun. This would not of course be
twice as great, for the Increases do not fol
low the proportions of the piece. It is sig
nificant that the six-Inch gun now under
going tests has withstood the strain of
yielding the highest known musxle velocity
for Its clasB, after being subjected to eighty
shots without rupture. If the wire wrap
ping method Is thus demonstrated to be
successful in giving a greater strength
than In the case of the shrunk-jacket piece
or the built-up gun, there may be even
more remarkable records In store for the
ordnance products of the -future. Thus the
fight between gun and armor continue*.
The lessons of the Japanese-Russian war
seem to demonstrate that to date the gun
has the better of the argument.

Captain Van Schaick and Others.
Prom the Now York San.
The conviction of Capt. William H. Van
Schaick of the steamboat General Slocum
and the sentence Imposed on him by Judge
Thomas will not encourage negligence
among the commanders of excursion craft
in New York harbor. They show that the
government means that its laws shall be
obeyed, that the statutes enacted for the
protection of passengers are not mere liter
ary exercises of legislators with too little
to occupy their time, and that where guilt
is proved punishments are not to be merely
nominal. As far as Van Schaick is con
cerned, the law has been vindicated. There
will be great dissatisfaction, however, if he
alone suffers. Unquestionable though his
guilt is, it is not better established than is
the moral responsibility of the men who
employed him. and of the government of
ficers who allowed a steamboat to run in
New York waters without complying with
the law. If the result of the Van Schaick
case Is critleised adversely, it will not be
because of his sentence, but because others
have not been sentenced.

Another purchase of a good lot of Corsets front one of
America's foremost Corset makers. This manufacturer is so par
ticular about his output that in the examination of his wares he
puts aside all that show the least imperfection?no matter how
slight; these he calls seconds, and when they accumulate in suf
ficient quantity he offers them to a favored few at a reduced
price. Now, mind you, these are the regular dollar Corsets.
Fifty dozen will be ready tomorrow at 69c. each.
