Today Means Much for Cuba. Should Congress grant belligerent riglits to the Cubans today it will be an act of mercy for which the civilized yorld will be thankful. At 4 o'clock this after noon the question will come to a vote, and there is good reason to believe that a concurrent resolution will be adopted which will put an end to the brigand-like butch ery of the Spaniards and place the Cuban war on a less barbarous footing. Aside from the duty this country owes as a republic to patriots desirous of attaining a like condition, the rec ognition of the Cubans by Coiigress will be a business transaction that will do more to secure their future favor and trade than yrears of active commercial soliciting. The profitable returns from Cuba's rich fields heretofore ab sorbed by Spain will naturally fall to the friend that helped her in a time of need, and as the Cubans are sure to achieve independence our expression of national sym pathy is certain to win their practical gratitude. It is estimated that there are $25,000,000 of Amer ican capital already invested in Cuba which will bring no returns until peace has ended her struggles. Should it re sult in Spanish supremacy, the increase of taxes to meet the expenses of tlie war would make this investment un profitable; but with Cuban success, made possible by an act of Congress, American investments, both now and in future, would be assured of satisfactory returns. Before the war the annual net revenue of Cuba "was about $80, -000,000, and under economical Cuban rule that amount would be largel- increased, inasmuch as it is believed that Spanish officials squander and steal at least $20,000,000 a year. It is useless to speculate on the proportion of this income that would reach this country as a result of com mercial intercourse, but it must be taken for granted that with a friendly feeling existing betweeii Cuba and the United States the amounfwould be entirely satisfac tory. It is perhaps unfortunate that the Administration has shown such hostility to the Cuban cause, and has so long neglected to encourage recognition. But if Congress acts promptly and favorably toda7 the arrests and prose cution of alleged filibusters will soon be forgotten, and the sentiment of the American people will be in dicated by their representatives. O Something: About the Gas Question. The question ofcheaiwr gns is uovrl.crore tlie House District Committee, aud next Tuesday an effort will be made to decide whether It is to be furnished by a com petitive company or If a maximum price will be fixed at which the Washington and Georgetown Gaslight Company will be re quired to supply consumers. Were it not for the wild-cat cliemc of the Colum bia company to bring natural gas from West-Virginia for fuel purposes "its propo sition to .-eIl Illuminating gas at GO and 75 cents a thousand would seem reasonable. But. when a cori'ration -promises a gcod thing and then offers to a- com;uuy it with impossibilities, tlie entire project is given a moonshine halo . Even were the West Virginia gas fields sufficiently prolific to allow their product to be piped via thePntomacand :jo!din this cityat areason able price it would not be wise to penult our btrcets tc be torn up to lay mains for its distribution, because of the limited life of tlie natural gas supply. The Columbia company doubtless means business and hopes to carry out its con tracts. It would be unjust to insinuate that possibly its projectors are trying to obtain a franchise for speculative pur poses, but there Is an air of mystery sur More Sufferers Perhaps the Turks liave taken fresh courage from the iiitiful declarations of Lord Salisbury regarding the ArmcnianB, for reports come of new massacres or Christians who have refused to embrace the Mohammedan religion. The news filters through slowly, as the strictest Mirveillaucc is exercised by the Turkish officials in the East -witli a view to allow ing as little intelligence as possible regard ing the actual condition of nrfairs there to reach the outside -world. Nevertheless, in spite of this. JJie accounts from there re ceived witiiin the past few clays show but too plainly that the volcano of re ligious hatred and fanaticism is still In eruption and that a violent outburst may occur at aiiy moment. If Miss Clara Barton and her colaborcM were permitted to have free and unhin dered access to tlie suffering Armenians, Politicians and Millions of dollars are annually paid out by the government for the maintenance of postoffices of the fourth-class. A good many of these millions might be saved if Congress were to authorize or direct the Postmaster General to consolidate wher ever practicable, the smaller offices; that is, make them substations of a larger office near by, and thu cut off the expense involved in maintaining &o many separate establish ments. It ie, towever. not only a question of greater economy, but of better service, and tlie consolidation, therefore, is adviableupon two very important grounds. The trouble with carrying this desirable reform into practicable effect lies in this wh.ili It would benefit the people it would hurt thepolillcians, whom it would deprive of about the only patronage which, tinder the operations of the civil service law, Is still left to them. Yet In this very ob jection of the politician lies another good reason for bringing the cliange about, for the more the spoils element is eliminated the better will be tlie quality of our politics and iiolitieinns. Every fonrth-class post master abolished would become a clerk to soiiie other postmaster, and subject to'thc XowRdenlerH are cautioned to order n.

It is a serious thing to give a corporation permission to tear up the streets and impede and obstruct travel, to say nothing of filling public highways ivith uusightly and uncomfortable debris, and before do ing so Congress should earefully consider tlie consequences and decide IT the public would be benefited by the grauting of a franchise to the Columbia Gns Company. As the District legislative body, Con gress has power to fix the pricC' of gas and determine Its illuminating qualities. The AVashingtonand Georgetown Gas Com pany Is as well equipped to manufacture good .gas at a reasonable price as any new company could be, ard from a business standpoint and in the interests iof con sumers, it would stem the better policy to compel that company to meet our re quirements than to run the risk of bother ing tlie public by depet d:ng on the pledges of an unknown concern to give us cheaper and belter gas. It is to be hoped that J Congress will take tills view of the situation. It would certainly meet the requirements of citizens and prevent the trouble and inconvenience of disordering our-streets to lay new mains. in the Orient. we might expect some reliable informa tion, but it is to be feared that impedi ments will be placed in their way which will not only prevent them from obtain ing an accurate Insiglit into the true state or affairs, but even materially interfere -with their relief work. The ussislauce which the Turkish government has ex pressed itself as ready to afford, is but half-hearted at the best, and even were it all that it should be the resistance of. Uie fanatical native population aud of the Turkish soldiery would still be an adverse factor. The Armenian Christians are doomed to continue marlyr.s to their faith until some change takes place in the political conditions of Europe which will make the powers less distrustful of each other and, therefore, less unwilling to jmt the screws upon the sultan. Postoffices. restrictions and requirements of the merit system, which would insure belter service all around. It would be possible for the roslmaster General to accomplish the reform, If it were not that he cannot transfer the un used balance of the appropriation for postmasters to the appropriation for post orriee clerks, though by so doing he could effect both the change and a considerable saving. Tlie House Committee on Post offices and Fostroads might grant him the permission, or the Committee on Appro priations, or the House might do so, but they will not, for they would thereby vo.'nntarily deprive themselves of the little mess of pottage that is yet theirs. 1 .lore is t rite saying thata Representative represents; in other words, that lie Is no better and no worse than his constituency. If oui Representatives were really nomi nated by the people, that would be true; l-M. as a rule, they are nominated by a clique of political wfatc-pullers, and to that. cii-ut uicy represent. X'ossibiy the time may come when a campaign of education will bear fruit that will make possible reforms like the one referred to.

AFTER an absence of fourteen years Robert T.VJan Horn yesterday after noon took tlieontli as Representative from the Fifth Missouri district, suc ceeding Mr. Tar&ney, unseated . Mr. Van Horn is a ivMtc-lialrcd, "white uenrded man of venerable appearance, in that respect soinewhat lesembllng ex Bpcakcr Grow,-mid is nearly seventy-two years old.

Mr. Van Horn was elected mayor of Kansas City in 35 Gl and again in lgGTi, having served during the war as an of ficer of Uic Twenty-fifth Missouri In fantry. "While in the field he was elected to the Missouri. senate in lf2. and beforo the expiration of the term was elected to Congress, and ic-clcctcd twice, serving In the Thirty-ninth, Fortieth and Forty first Congresses. He was collector of internal revenue for the Sixth MIsouri district from 1S75 to 1681. He -was a delegate to the Republican national con ventions of 1EG4, 15G8, 1672, 167G and 1550 and was'elecled to the Forty-seventh Congress In 1882. It is a remarkable fact that after a first retirement from Congress of a dozen years, and a second one of fourteen years, Mr. Van Horn is again a member or that body, in which he was a repre sentative three decades ago. T IS regarded as a singular coincidence by members of the House that the an nouncement of John May's conviction the management of t lie frauds by which it is alleged Mr. Tarsney's election was secured, shouM come on the very day that Mr. Van Horn was given tlie seat. The statement thai May had been found guilty and sentenced to the penitentiary ror a term of two years, was used by Mr. Johnson or Indiana with telling ef fect and seemed to constitute an unanswer able argument. May is a wealthy saloonkceiicr, who Is said to have amassed a fortune of a quarter million dollars by the perpetration of similar frauds in the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh precincts of Kansas City, which figure so conspicuously in the contest.

During the entire delivery of the -speech, which was by no means short. Mr. Dalzell .sat almost immediately in front of 'Mr. Johnson, and was conspicuous lu appluud every oratorical period.

Some Bin Gems tbe HUllmr Vluce of Which Im Unknown. One or the most mysterious things about diamonds is the ease with which, they can disappear. Two centuries ago. Tavernier. a French jeweler, very fond of travel, made hH way to the Ent. where lie ingratiated himself in the favor of most of Uie pnnee and iHtentates of India. A connoisseur in diamnmls, he managed to obtain views and personal exammanous or the precious stones then in the treas uries of rich monarch. He brought back accounts of no less Uian seven dw moods of great size, none Iea than 200 carats, all or which he weighed and described with an accuracy that gave evident e or the truth of his statements. Not one of these diamond has ever been seen since, or course, it is easy to say that Tavernier was romnnoing. and tba t the huge gems existed only iu his imagination, but iu the case of two or three Tavernler's descriptions arc sustained by the testimony of other experts, while Indian historians are equally explicit concerning one or two of the others. With rcgnrd to the "Great Mogul," the largest of all .known diamonds, there is abundance or tcsUmony as to size and weight in addition to the statements of Tavernier. It was a Goltotula gem, and weighed 7S7 carats in the lough, though much reduced by cutting. It was the property of Vizier Mirgimola, a vassal of tlie King of Golconda, who de termined to have him assassinatedin order to obtain the gem. But Mirgimola escaped with his Jewels to Shah Jchan, at that time the Great Mogul, who speedily learned of the diamond, and intimated that it would be a delicate and acceptable preent. Mir gimola took the hint, the shah got the gem. and, while it was in the treasury or Aruugzelic, his successor, Tavernier ex amined and weighed it. It lias never been mentioned as seen by any one since, and, whether it was hidden before Nahir Shah captured Belhi, or whether it was part of the spoils, is un known. It may have icen divided into a number of smaller gems, or it may be now concealed in some fortress in India, Tersia or Arabia, as was the crown of Chasros ror 1.000 years , to reappear atsome future time, when it is safe forthe owner to display his wealth.
