Then how can Lorlmer be stronger than he was two years ago' What has ho dune to popularize himself with the people of the State, or his. own count rv : It must be conceded that a c.irc'ul and dis passionate onalvsis of the strength of tho Yntes-Ijorlmer-Hopklns faction disposes of Mr Hopkins as een a probibllity in the senatorial race.

He Is on tho side of Dawes, but is an cnthusl istlc admirer of Senator Mjson'K forensic ability, and In asmuch as Mason ripeatedly announced tli it lie was anxious that the canvass should lie carried on in a spirit of good iiuture, Mr. Louden decided to bring tho two candidates toKether if thero was a lull in tho reciptlon The occasion arrived nnd Uawes was ushered Into Mason's room in tile hotel. Dead silenco prevailed for orac time. Neither knew how to bleak the ice. Tin illy niosan said h" had done Dines an injustice In some slatemint he hid nmle. and he was i.orry for it.

At the banqdet that nlRht there was an exchange of compli ments between them that surprised tho au dience. Mason was the star pcrfonmr nnd carried off all the honors, as ho carried the delegate? to the senatorial convention In the afternoon. Mr Hopkins mide an unfor tunate allusion to the "ld.(m Republican m i Jorltj In my district-a district that has elected mo eight times, nnd which would return me again."

It is pretty gtncrnlly understood tht the Rock Island District is not much of a Yates hotbed.

Tho Yosemite ls credited with having taken part In an engagement with two Spanish gunboats nnd her officers and men, principally her men, think that their con duct should ho recognized.

The Record appeared on Wednesday morning as an Illustrated paper It has been frequently tilled with diagrams, but on tho morning in question It came out with three beautiful pictures elucidating a point made by Representative Uell of Col orado in one of his electrifjlng speeches in the House. Mr. Hell's speech was in advocacy of a resolution forbidding the use of any Gov ernment building or Government property, except the Capitol and the White House, for any of tho ceremonies attending tho iniuguration of a President of the United State'). Ho Introduced tho resolution be cause, at the last inauguration of President McKlnley, a grand Bland was erected along Pennslv.u)la avenue, covering the great gateway lending to the State, War and Navy building. 1 he grand stand took lire and the granite pillars were ruined. It was decided that they must be re placed by the local Committee on Inaugura tion, but inlluencc has prevent, d the Gov ernment from enforcing this claim. Rep resentative Hell in telling the IIous about it said that he- could not explain flly the damage that tho gate hid sustained, but he would put pictures of the gate "before and after" In the Record. Some of tho members of Congress, who are jealous of the popularity of widely cir culated newspapers, think the Government should be more progre-slve with Its ofilci ii newspaper and advocate the Introduction of color printing. Some of them wanted a comic supplement, but It was explained that the Record was tulliclently comic now, since it is printing, in full, the debate in tho Senate on the Philippine "itu ition. Sen i tor Hawley ajn the Record is just as good a paper as it ever was, hut bo wants the price cut and a premium piid to nil who read it. "ST. LOUIS FIFTY YEARS AGO." Doctor II.

Washington, Feb. 15 The report to bo filed to-morrow by the House Committee on Interstate and roreign Commerce recom mending the passage of the bill introduced by Representative Corliss, providing for Government ownership of a Pacific cable, says that the United States, by the annex ation of Hawaii and the acqulstiun of the Philippines and other Islands through tho ratification of the Paris treaty, assumed the responsibility of maintaining peace in the Pacific Ocean. Tills obligation, the report which was prepared by Representative Corliss, the author of the bill says, waa deliberately undertaken by this country and approved by the united voice of the people. It adds: "The future peace and prosperity of these islands will largely eiepend upon the facil ities extended by our Government for the advancement and enlightenment of the peo ple there. If we are to continue in control of these islands, the people must be made to understand the character and purpose of our Government and to feel the benefits of enlightenment and civilization and American liberty.

The advancement of our own people and tho benefit of rapid communication through the telephone, telegraph and railway lines Il lustrate the advantages and the progress that mny bo achieved through cable mes sages " Regarding the Government ownership of cables. Mr,. Corliss says England for fifty vears has been constantly acquiring, 'by purchase and construction, cable communi cation with her vast possessions, until she has epe nded upwards of a hundred million dollars for th's purpose, and operates her ow n cables connecting her colonies. Eng land is now constructing a Pacific cable from Vancouver to Autral! i at a cost of nearly $3 0X,IVO. and In order to give her tradesmen ntnl manufacturers the benillt of this communication at the itast possible expense. Ins fixed a rate of two shillings or fifty co-its per word for cable messages from Vancouver to New Zealand. Otlicr fitloiiN Arc Alert. "France. Germany and other nations are not sleeping on their rights a the people of tho United States have been." comments Mr. Corliss, "hut are establishing Govern ment telegraphic eommunicatlon with their respective possessions. "I, therefore, contend that the Pacific cable should be owned, controlled and oper ated by the Government of the United State", it should be- made by an American manufacturer, laid by an American ship under the American flag and operated at actual cost fcr the dissemination of know ledge, the proper direction of our army and navy and the advancement of our trade and commerce in the Pacific. The tran mI"!on of communications should be held bv the State. "Tiie right to construct and operate the Pacific cable Ls a public utility or fran chise held by the people. Its control is an inherent right of tho nation; Its construc tion and operation necessarily -will be come for a great many years a monopoly and should not be transferred from tho control of the people."

In conclusion, the report says: "Every part of the world has been enlightened bv cable Iinei except the Pacific Ocean. This vast body of water, under the con trol ot our own Government, seems to be tho one dark spot upon the face of the earth, and for the want of a cable the gem of the Pacific, the Hawaiian Islands, a part of our own ccuntry. are left In dark ness seven days behind the rest of tha w orld."
