WASHINGTON, March S.-There wa» a very strong suggestion of the state of af fairs that might exist in time of actual war in th a busy scenes presented at the navy and war departments today. There w :s an almost unbroken succession of con ferences cf officers and officials of various degrees, and throughout both branches of the war establishment the greatest activ ity was exhibited. So rotary Long w?s especially busy. I?e --f re 1) o'clock he was obliged to retire to hL» private office, and deny himself to < a 11- er.j In order to attend a conference rela tive to preparations for putting the navy in the highest state of efficiency. He found time il iring the progress of the con ference to talk a moment with Mr. Lane, who has submitted to the department pro po?al3 for the sale of certain warships now building in Europe at private ship yardA What pa.v* -1 b tween them i s * not known, but Mr. Lnr.o hastened immedi ately to the cable office at the conclusion of the conversation to communl. ate di rectly with his_nri" ipals in Eur in" K rTo»\ icdm" o l I n rT- iu n «lii|i«. The secretary made It plain to the legls lators at the con ft rence that the depart ment is very much letter pr- pared than has lie»>n supposed in the matter of accu rate Information of the ship building in progress n European shipyards. But the point upon which the department now seeks to inform itself goes beyond this and looks to securing information as to what ships can be purchased immediately. It was shown that very m ny more ditfl ci ties exist than the public Is aware of in the acquirement of such property'as war ships. Ma-t of these craft under con struction are l>eing built under special orders for v . ri-ous governments, and only a f< w. and those perhaps not of the most desirable type, are in the builders' hands its sut h shape that they can bi at once d.spcscd of. In the case of some of the European powers under a strong mon archical form of government, it Is possible for permission to be giv t n at onee for the sale of a ship to another nation, but in the case of more c mpiex forms of gov ernment. such as th >se that exist in the Sviith American republics, which have orJ rod ships now under can-auc'. n in it I* fared that g:av\ constitu t. >nal an!

NQUESTIONABLY the central figure in I (si the campaign which closed with the city election yesterday was the man whom the people of Seattle have chosen as their mayor for the term beginning a week from next Monday, and who is the present mayor of the city, Thomas J. Humes. Early in the campaign it became manifest that the fusion leaders had hatched out a subtle scheme by which they hoped to array certain elements against Mayor Humes on the record he had made during his administration as mayor of the city for so many years his home. Fortunately for the Republicans, the magnificent business ad ministration which has characterized all de partments of the city government gave Mayor Hume an almost imoreg nable vantage ground on which he cculd afford to stand with serene composure and perfect reli ance. His strong v common sense and\ rugged sincerity of\ purpose saw further than even some of his political advisers, and has won for him a victory of which any man in the city might be proud. When he was nominated by the Republican city convention, which met in Armory hall on Feb. 24, the agitation which tho fusion leaders had hoped to stir up seemed to have culminated, and among certain wiseacres it was said that the convention had committed a fatal blunder in nominating Humes on the platform adopted. The pivotal point of the campaign was the great Re publican rally at tho Armory, when Mayor Humes exploded a bombshell in the camp of the A MlfflfltiT REPUBLICAN VICTIIY. Humes, Humphrey, Parry, Foote Triumphantly Elected, and a Clear Majority in the New City Council—The Vote. 'Twas a glorious victory! Y sterday'a election markoJ a triumph rot only t r i rri-.ti ally t:;e entire Republi can tike: but for clean politics, and it administered a stinsrir.s rebuke to the de famatory and unsavory methods pursued by those who sought to vilify and abuse Mayor Humcf.

Mr. Humes was born in Tippecanoe county, Ind., on the banks of the Wabash river, on Feb. 14, 1849, and was educated in lowa and Illinois. He moved to Kansas in 1867, and studied law, except for an interval in 1868, during which he served in the state militia aud aided in suppres sing an Indian revolt. He returned to lowa for admission to the bar, and then opened a law office n Washington county, Kansas. He served two terms in the legis lature, from 1877 to 1879, and was assistant United States attorney in 1880-81. Heiuov :d to Seattle in the spring of 1882 and re sumed the prac tice of law. He was elected to the house of rep resentatives in the last territorial leg islature in 1888. In the spring of 1890> when the legislature pro vided a third superior judge for King county, he was appointed to the office by Gov. Ferry, and was elected on the Re publican ticket for two years in the fall of 1890, and again in 1892 for the four-year term, which expired in January, 1897. He was judge of Ihe criminal and divorce departments. In the fall of 1896 he was defeated, though he came nearer election than any other Republican. He resumed the practice of law, and was building up & good clientage when the deadlock in the city council was broken by his election as mayor on Novem ber 19, 1897. in the Firpt.

WASHINGTON, March S— In a spirit of patriotism, with eloqumt w\ rds ring ing In thtir ears, every number of tha house of representatives today responded to the president's first o.»H to meet the Spanish situation, by casting his vote fo* a bill placing in President M. Kinley's hand* to bo expended at his discretion fur the national defense. Party lir.es wr-e swept away and with an almost unanim 'is voice congi?ss voted Its confidence in the administration. Many members who were paired with absent colli ugu s took the responsibility of breaking their pairs, an unprecedented thing in leglslatlvo annals, in order that they misfit go on record In supporting this vast appropriation to maintain the dignity and honor of their country. Speaker Heed, who, as tho presiding officer, st 1 .! in votes, only in case of a tie, had his name caikd and voted in his capacity -is a rtprts.ntativo. The scene of enthusiasm which greeted tho announcement of the vote—yeas 311, nays none—has seldom been paralleled In the houre. All day long (he galleries were jammed with enthusiastic sp.< tator» applauding to the echo the sUrling patriotism of the words of -wWdr-wwr'nrttred by the members on the floor. All the speeches were brief. Although four hours were allowed for debate, so great was the pressure for tlm. that no one memh«r was given more than five minutes, and most of them had to content themselves with beggarly fractions if a minute.
