Changes Forecasted. ?
The promotion of Mr. Garfield to a cabi
net position and the appointment of Mr.
Moody to the Supreme Court have been
forecasted a number of times. The latter
will remain at the head of the Department
of Justicfe until toward the end of this
year, when he will enter upon the supreme
bench, the supposition being that the Sen
ate will confirm his appointment shortly
nfter Coneress assembles. It is staled that
' no serious opposition to Mr. Moody is ex
pected, although there have been sugges
tions that southern senators might oppose
his confirmation.
Mr. Garfield has been one "of a coterie of
young men who has been very close to the
President, both officially and socially. Mr.
Garfield first came into the administration
as a civil service commissioner, where he

Douglas, Parliamentary Pugilist.
From "Reminiscences of a Long Life," by C?rl
Schurz. In the November McClure's.
My most distinct recollections are of the
Senate. The most conspicuous figure in
that body was Douglas. He was a man
of low stature, but broad-shouldered andi
big-chested. His head, sitting upon a
stout, strong neck, was the very incarna-"
tion of forceful combativpiipss a snimrii
jaw and broad chin; a rather large, firm
set mouth; the nose straight and some
what thick; quick, piercing eyes with a
deep, dark, scowling, menacing hori
zontal wrinkle between them; a broad
forehead; and an abundance of dark hair,
which at that period he wore rather long,
and which, when In excitement, he shook
and tossed defiantly like a lion's mane.
The whole figure was Compact and
strongly muscular, as if mad.e for con
stant fight. He was not Inaptly callej
me nine K'-m oy nis partisans.
His mann ->f speech accorded exact!!
with his ap;e.-ranee. His sentences were
clear cut, direct, positive. They went
straight to the mark like bullets, and
sometimes like cannon balls, tearing and
crushing. There was nothing ornate, noth
ing imaginative in his language, no at
tempt at "beautiful speaking;" but it
would be difficult to surpass his clear
ness and force of statement when his po
sition was right, or his skill in twisting
logic or In darkening the subject with
extraneous, unessential matter when he
was wrong, or his drilant tenacity when
he was driven to deiend himself, or his
keen and crafty alertness to turn the de
fense into attack, so that even when over
whelmed with adverse argument he would
issue from the fray with the air of the
Fads Blight of American Education.
From "The World Language." by IIu;o Munster
berg. lu the November McClure's.
For a while we heard the cry that the
whole wrong arose only because the teach
ers did not fcnow enough psychology. The
public, justly anxious to improve the de
fective schools, rushed at once into the
psychological track; the teachers became
null |ipj(.iiuiusn-ai pt'U'cigUKK'S. Hie
public felt proud: that something was being
done, and yet the schools still remained
backward. It could not be otherwise, be
cause no psychology and no pedagogics can
be a substitute for the first demand?that
the teacher shall know the subject which
she is to teach'. And the chase In the
wrong direction, of course, delayed progress
in the right one. This time it Is not the
toohut tha niirvH fnv n-Knm Ka rnmaAtr
la advertised. The pupil must have a sim
pler spelling book; then everything will be
all right, and the two years' difference
from the German boy will be got over. I
am afraid it will turn attention again in a
misleading direction, and the real evil will
go on. And yet the children deserve some
thing which is more valuable for life than
the 300 simplified words down to wisky,
wilful, woful, and wrapt; they deserve that
the school shall give them a training in ac
curate methods of learning and thought.

The British Ambassador to Re
tire to Private Life.
Lcrd Cnrzon Mentioned as Likely to
Be Appointed.
Resignation Will Take Effect at the
End of the Year?Expecta
tion in London.
Kir Henry Mortimer Durand. British am
nassaaor 10 ine i n t^a state. called ai me
State Department yesterday ii f ernooi and
formally notified Secretary Root ot liis
early retirement from the British diplomatic
service. He stated that he had already
tendered his resignation And that it had
been accepted to take effect upon the ap
pointment of h's succe.-sor. Although not
definitely determined it i.s probable that Sir
Mortimer wi'.l not officially relinquish his
duties in this city until about tie first of
January when he will so to Ens'and on his
annual leave. He will not then return to
the United States, at least in an official I
capacity.' It is understood that no one has

yet been selected io succeed hirn at Wash
ington and that his resignation wi'.l not be
come effective, notwithstanding h!s dapar
ture from this city, until that is done.
Lord Curzon Mentioned.
An interesting rumor i:i this connection
is that Lord Curzon, former viceroy of
India, may sueccea sir Morumor uurana as
the British ambassador to the I'nfted States.
The feet that Udf-d Ctirzch 'is* now tin the
sea between Great Britidn and this country
and has announced that he will visit in
this country for some time lends color to
the rumor of his appointment to t!; Wash
ington post. Lord Curson is accompanied
by Mrs. Letter, the mother of Lady Curzon,
who died a short time. ago.
It was not possible to obtain any informa
tion at the British embassy concerning Sir
Mortimer Durand's successor, but in official
circles throughout Washington it is regard
ed as possible that Lord Curzon may be
given the post because of his wide ac
quaintance in the United Status and his ex
lens-ve experience in uie eriiisn loreipn
Retirement Wholly Voluntary.
Sir Mortimer Durand's retirement from
the British diplomatic service is officially
declared to have been entirely voluntary,
and will undoubtedly be a sourca of gen
eral regret In official and social circles at
this capital, where lie and the members of
Ills family have become most popular.
Sir Henry Mortimer Durand cane to
Washington in December. lfc.H. from Ma
drid as the successor of the late Sir Michael
Merbert, whose short term was ended by
death the previous summer, so that he will
have served scarcely mere tiian three years
on his coming retirement. I-ady Durand be
ing very much of an invalid, the British
embassy under tlie present regime has
not been th? conspicuous social center
of former years although Miss Durand. >the
only daughter of the family, has been pop
ular with tiie younger portion of so.-lety.
Lord Curzon,
Who Will Likely Hp (ireat Britain's Next A[Iitiay
sador to Tills Country.
In which her coming depar ure will be
deeply regretted. She is now with her
parents at the embassy, on Connecticut
avenue, where Lady Durand arrived a day
or two ago from Lenox.
Although some of the close friends of
the ambassador and li s family at Lenox
were informed in the summer of the diplo
mat's intention to sec-k a long leave of ab
sence, it was only in the last few d-iys,
with the return of his family to Wash
ington that the idea of his permanent re
tirement became known.
Long and Creditable Career.
The ambassador has had a long and cred
itable career In the government service.
Following an extended period of service in
India he was transferred to Persia, and
was political secretary to Gen. Roberts dur
ing tha TTahul pamnfllen. In IMKt he .con
ducted a mission to the ./^meer of Afghan
istan, and during the succeeding six years
he was the British diplomatic representa
tive at Teheran. From Persia Sir Mortimer
went to Madrid, where he remained for
three years, and up to the time of hi-? ap
pointment as British- ambassador to the
United States. During his service here he
established olose relations with the Pres
CU?v ot.il
contributed materially In cementing the
friendly relations between Great Britain
and the United States In the settlement of
severe! troublesome questions to the satle
faction of both governments. '
Amtwssador Durand does not carc to dis
cuss publicly the reason* for Ills retirement
from public life. He does not hesitate,
however, to express his regret at the neces
sity for his departure from Washington. "I
am fn/loaH fort- n?/l "
said lie. when approached on the subject,
"to leave this country. I have many dear
friends here and I have enjuyed my time
here greatly."
Important change* in the diplomatic serv
ice In Washington have been unusually fre
quent within lhe past few months, the re
tirement of Ambassador Mnyor<les Plane hen
of Italy. Ambassador Casasus of Mexico
and Ambassador l>urand of Kngland having
followed each other in jrapld succession.
No Successor Selected.
LONDON. November S. The retirement
of Sir Mortimer I>urand. the British am
bassador to the I nlted States, will take
place at the end of this year. He has been
permitted to resisn lit his own urwnt re
quest, and Intends t.> permanently leave (he
diplomatic service for private life. The
foreign office has not yet considered th?
question of Sir Mortimer's successor, and
it is expected that there will lie an Interim
during whjch u new councillor of tiie em
bassy, whose name will l>e announced
shortly, will probably be appoln:ed acting
