It is announced that the McKialcj Ad niiwistratioH has decided to accept the rfward of the Swibs tribunal of arbitration jn the matter ot the Delagoa Railwaj The leason assigned for this utterlj indefensi ble action is that to reject me uecisiou oi j the arbitrators would be to strike a blow at the sacred cause of international ar bttration As a matter of fact exactly the reorse is true Nothing in the historj of modern diplo macy can be found as destructhe of all confidence in arbitration as this unjust, disgraceful, arm corrupt award It must be remembered that the amount allowed to the claimants, whose propertj was bod llj stolen from them bj the Portuguese authorities, is one million dollars less than its original hrst cost, and one million le's than Tortgual was willing to pa with out litigation The alue of the railway concession was not considered b the tr bunal, which, on no possible reasoning of legal or equitable snnit onl condemned Portugal to paj three million dollars At leant that sum is due to the heirs of Col onel McMUrdo if an j thing is jet the American claimants will hardlv realize twelve thousand dollars out of the award The British railwaj bonds and the expoase of the tribunal haing preference, will ab soib nonrlj everj thing If this wore the whole story, Mr Me Kinlej, for reasons of state, might per haps be excusable in permitting such a flagrant outrage upon some of his fellow -tftisens But the Delagoa award is noto riou! tainted with collusion and corrup tion, and, hence, is not binding on this Government or Great Britain It has been common talk in Geneva for months thai the arbitrators were verj much under the influence of the Anglophobe sentiment so rjfe in Europe since the outbreak of war in South Africa They are suspected of haiug maintained confidential relations with the Portuguese Cabinet pending itheir decision. But, worse than all this, the nature and amount of the award was JLnown to a Paris banker befr a word on the subject was given out by the tribu nal, the result being that heavj short sales of Delagoa bonds and shares w ere made in London, and at a profit larger than the full amount awarded to the claimants. Now, this advance Information could haraij thave been furnished bj any person other than one of the three arbitrators, or the eecretary of the tribunal. The general opinion In London appears to be that the (speculation was a Joint affair, and was the culmination of a deliberate plan to jookej ihe London Stock Market In the fullest '""Uiadenco that the award could not fall below twelve million dollars, with any just recognition of the rights involved, Delagoa securities and shares were looked upon as perfectlj good at their face. The arbitrators knew this, and bj some peoplo are thought to.4iare acted with abilltj on the ulnerable cmTof the situation, but not quite in their proper character as jurists In the peculiar circumstances of the cas it is simplj an outiage on justice for the President to accept -the Swiss decision. The Sulixldj ItlU. We hae not the slightest hope that the amendments to the llanua-Pajne Ship Substdv bill, now being prepared b Demo cratic members of the House Committee on the Merchant Marine and Fisheries, will "be accepted by the majoritj. If thej were, the effect would be to give ordinary Ameri cans a little chance to get some of the bounty The Administration would never permit that, since the bill as it stands is exclusive! in the intoiests and for the bencht of a svndieate of transportation magnates and shipbuilders, including less than ; doaen individuals who will captuie the whole loot of ninctj million dollars This purpo&c is concealed as well as pos sible under the language of the bill, but still not sutcessfullj so The Democratic amendments will be useful only in calling attention to the gigantic and impudent jobber of tbe measure, thus expesing one of the mo&t barefaced raids upon the Treasury ever attempted in American his tory We have little doubt that the pro posed legislation will be enacted It will greallj help to dig the Republican pir tj's grave in the autumn though, we arc werrv to sav at a ruinouslv high pi ice But possibly, it ma j be worth the monej if the people are thoroughlv informed upon the nature and extent of the offence One of the pleasant trust provisions In the bill is that which does not permit it benefits to applj to foreign-built -vessels bought after it becomes a law This reser- at ion ought to tell its own storv to the dullest mind The trust svndicnte Ins control of all the outlander ships it can neestblv utiiice, under options which will become sales the minute it is certain that the HaRna-Pavne bill is to pass It is plain that anv outsider then would be not nh barred from acquiring foreign bot toms, but, if he sought to take advantage of the subsWv. he would have no other re sort than to the trust yards where he would hae to contract at the trust price, which would be made high enough to de stroy hh chance of competition with the trust carriers Of coarse when the fact dawns upon the conntrj that tbe Hanna-Payne scheme is one to take niaetv million dollars out of the Treasurj and distribute it ainon about ten favored menoiioiists in consid eration of an enormous contribution b them to the Republican corruption fund. there will he a general crj of indignation from ocean t ocean, but it will not deter tbe Administration from carry ing out its deal The same partv men in Congress who have opealj and kuowinglv violated their oaths to support the Con stitution in voting for the Porto Rican lnfamv, -will hae as little conscience about promoting a plot to plunder the national till Thej wiil vote uuder execu tne order as meeklj m the latter at. they did in the former case As Senator Davis Chairman of the Com mittee on roreign Relations, has omciallv stated te Senator Morgan that the Ha Pauncefotc Treat -will not be again brought np for consideration at this ten sion of Congress, the latter is no longer under aaj obligation to refrain from press ing the American Nicaragua Canal hill Senator Morgan is determined to pHee the Republican majoritj on record in the mat ter so that the country maj be in no doubt as to what Senators arc favorable and what are unfavorable to the proposition of an American canal, to be built with American monev. and defended with American guns Our own idea is that the Administration is strong enough to pro vent legislation at this time On the other band, it is not -able to blind the eves of anvfeodv to the fact that Its obstruction of the canal projeVf results from a campaign subscription trade with the plutocratic enemies! of tho.tropoetl national woik The Administration is still working on Theodore Roosevelt in the hope of induc ing him to run for the Vice President v notwithstanding his repeated and latelv angrv refusals to be shelved for the I en efit of Mr McKmlej, Mr Pint or an bod. But unbridled success in destrovmg the consciences of House Republicans has made the partj leaders confident and ar rogant, aud thej renllj believe that when Rockefeller, Havemejer, and Hanna get readv for a last call the Rough Rider will trot up and be branded without a mur mur The Secretary of the Navv has addres-ed the Senate Commitee on Naval Affairs, urging legislation to increase the number of cadets at Annapolis t present there are not Hcariv enough officers in the Navj to fill the positions necessary on its vessels The Secretarj calls attention to the fact that he has been able to detail onlj twen-, tj -three officers for dutj on the Kearsarge, whereas the British battleship Majestic has sexentj Certalnlj it is useless to spend millions in adding fresh bottoms to our service unless Congress Intends to pro vide means to man and fight them FriiMiil to Temperance.

In a case which ha come up in a Kentucky court a colored woman ues for damages because the nilroud company permitted a bad quality of white men to invade the onlj car in which she was allowed to ride, and insult her bv their actions and conversation Certainlj, if the iMxroes are to 1 kept apart from the whites, the whites sltould be kept apart from the ne grocs, and the court will proliublj rule to that effect.

(From the Chicago Tribune) The fortune of the late Baron Adolphe dc Roth echlld, estimated at a1td 203.000,000 francs, probabh has been left to' his wife. The collec tion ol choice pictures, tho planting of his Swus and Austrian estate, and the lovclv (rvrdens and immense greenhouses at Pregny, ins domain near Geneva, were the occupilions and amusements of the late baron's life. He cared nothing for gen cral soeictv. to which the baroncsj. is also in different, and the onlj creat personages thej trt,u bled themselves to en'crtain were the late Im press of Austria and her sifter, the ex Queen of Naples, to whom thej were nut kind and faithful fr.ci dt POLITICAL NOTES AND GOSSIP. The orrl On me- it is conceded that of course the Hon. James L Norris' chief aim is to be elected National Commit teeman for the District of Columbia, but it is also agreed among the political ex perts that a part of his game from tho first was to assist to the limit of his abilltj the Brjau opposition As the case now stands, if the Norris delegation is recognized at the Kansas City Convention the Br an opposition will be strengthened by six votes and the new organization which will then be formed for the man agement of the party affairs for four j cars will contain at least one member, in the ncrson of Norris, who is not In sjmpalhj with the sentiment that at present is dominant in tho party and which Iikelj will continue to control the organization. The suspicion is widespread that from the first Mr. Norris ins been co-operating with the secret enemies of Brjan and has agreed to deliver to them the six -votes of the District at Kansas Cit in Julj. Furthermore, this suspicion takes account of the probabilitj that Mr. Norris was chosen bv the shrewd and re sourceful men known to be fostering the Dewey movement to lead the fight in the District for the Admiral of course under cover. When these facts are developed at Kansas Citj. in addition to the ex posure of the methods employed bj Norh-a and his henchmen to carry the primaries in this citj, it is not doubted that Che Committee on Credentials will very promptlj proceed to do business with tho Norris delegates Bj keeping them out of the convention Mr Brjan's friends will to that extent weaken the opposition to W" "JT.

Oklahoma, Alaska, and the District of Columbia, as well as Porto Rico, the Philippines, and other outljlng terntorv, on the ground, that the commu nities mentioned are Territories and not States. The Pennsjlvanlan xerj carefullj edited this startling assertion out of his speech before it appeared in the "Rec ord Han a IHaoL H '. The Hoil E V Carmack has returned to Washington with a black eje. This is of especial interest in view of the fact that Mr Carmack has been personallj looking after his interests in the warm Senatorial campiign now in progress in Tennessee.. Additional interest attaches to the circumstance when it is known that Mr. Carmack is asking the people of Tennessee to elevate him to the Senate on a platform opposed to expansion His chief opponent, Supreme Court Justice Snodgrass, is running on an expansion platform, while the third man in the race. Governor McMillin, has not jet committed himself on this great and overshadowing issue. Neither of these gentlemen has jet accumulated a black eje Mr. Caraiack's right optic is covered with a dark green shade, and he is being kept busj explain ing to his colleagues in the House that he Is suffering with an attack of iritis. Still, there are incredulous statesmen among them who wink when his back is turned and intimate the belief that the ailment which he says has befallen him Is only an ill-omen of what is to happen before the Senatorial campaign is closed unless he adjusts his platform to the tra ditional policj of his part j. At the stme time, there is much sjmpathj for Mi. Carmack in his present unhappj plight, and the hope is universal that whatever has caused his black eje maj soon be eradicated from the atmosphere of Tenn essee The FrlcL-CnriieKle I'nct.
