Tim great street enr strike hai ended tn New York with the usual result. Three fourths of the strikers thrown out (if em ployment and the cars equipped with new men In their placet Such it the folly of strikes. PHEStDESIT-Et.KCT Harrison doea not throw any light to the politician as to who h intenila to select for memlier s of his cabinet. In order In make a fair dl Tioion he should aim to select two mem ber from the south, one from the east one from the northern line of siaten, two from the central and one, from the ex. treine west. Four months have elapsed ince Lord Sa 'krllle was c tiled home to his native country. England lias declined to send a suuctstxir to Lord Suckville and in turn President Cleveland lias ordered our Min ister them, Mr. Phelps, to return home Consequently for thu flrt time in the his tory of the United States the two great countries have declined to comply with the courtesies between n itions. Wb quote the following paragraphs from the Chicago Advance with regard to the Sainnan troubles: "Curiously just now the eyes of the world are turned upon tl'at small group of eight or nine Isl ands in the Southwest Pacific known us the Samoan or Navigator Islands. Some of the strongest war ships ot Germany, Ennl.iml and America are hovering about the waters there, or are on their way thither. From the talk in the newspapers one might almost imagine tliHt there whs about to be some terrible conflict between some of the greatest Powers on earth. Although the Interests at stake and the principles of International ' comity in volved are by no means of slight Impor tance, theie is not tfiiinir to be any war over the matter. But there will be tome trenous diplomatic action, backed by ut le ;S some vigorous show of force. Great nations show their essential nior-l quality by the way in which they treat the loser powers, from whom they may seem to have nothing to fear. From all accounts the behavior ol the German forces at the Samoan Islands has been enfty and bully lug, wiih a thorough ly Bismarcklan purpose al the end of It The distinct understanding on thu part ol Germany, England and America, has been that the independence and autonomy of the Samoan Island should be preserved. There is at one of these Islands one of the finest barters in the world. As a coaling ital loo the place Is one of exceeding Im portance, and sure to be in the near future of yet greater importance. The objection to allowing any one of the foreign powers to have control there Is obvious. What appears to have been the defiant attitude ol the German authorities, in the dom ineering spirit of Bismarck himself, Is not likely to be tolerated. "But to understand clearly the situation, one needs to know somewhat of the his tory of the Samoan people and govern- merit. The population consists of about 83.000 people, about 28,000 of them being at least nominal Christians. ''For many generations the people have been under the government ol a reigning family, the ueneral designation of whose chief is Malletoa. About thirty years ago, on the death of Malietoa Mall, the fa her of the ruler lately deposed by the Ger mans, there was a dispute at to whether the kingship should descend to his son, Laupepa, a youth of twenty years, or to bis half brother 1'alavou. Although both claimed the lamlly headship, neither at tempted to take the throne, and nephew and uncle lived peaceably together in the tame house until 1809, when an oflklous missionary, AVilliams by name, took Laupepa secretly awsy and bad him Clowned king. Civil war Immediately broke out, which resulted. In 1873, In a compromise, broniht about by Colonel Bteinberger, a special sgent of tbe United Stati s, who, with the aid of consult and miss'onaries, formulated a constitutional government, under eleven chiefs. Tbe people, however, soon decided that they desired a king, and to avoid further war, In 1075, choae two kings, the one this young Malletoa Laupepa, (the uncle Ta. lavnu withdrawing his claims), and an other party taking Pulcpule, a scion of tn rival bouse of Tnpua. This arrange ment proving uneatlsfactory, Colonel Steinberger devised tnotber scheme by which a king to rclgn four years should be chosen alternately from the rival bouses of Malietoa and Tupua, and he himself became prime minister. Within year he was deposed and carried off In a British ship. Then followed in rapid sue cession a government by Laupepa, by tbe eleven chiefs, and finally by the uncle Talavou, who reigned until 1880, when, nn his death, Laupepa came again to the throne. ( 1 v; ,,,'.' i . , , "On the 18th ot last December eighty German tailors were landed at Matalaga tele, and in conjunction with another lon e marched upon Mntaufa. tie, knowing the dangers ol interfering with German soldiers, retired belore. tlr-m.

A Prospecting Tour, No. 8, bf Our Special Correspondent. 1 New Ohlkaks. Editor ot Tss EvTsaraisi! There it no place In the union that pos sesses more attractive and distinctive fea tures than New Orleans. It It an old city with a few new buildings and a number of new monuments. The town is built on a crescent shaped tract of land formed by abend in the Mississippi river, which has given It tbe name of CresentClty. It was first settled In 1718 by a small French colony under Bienville and named In hon or of the Duke of Orleans. The Spanish took possession ol tbe city in 1700. Tbe first Americans settled here in 1789, one hundred years ago. It became the prop erty of the United States in 1803. General Jackson arrived la New Or leans on December 1st, 1813, and defeated the British on January 8th, 1813. Farra gut't fleet alter eight day's fighting ran past tbe lortt near the mnutb of the Miss tssippl river, In April 18G2, and General Butler took possession of the city a few days later, and it remained In possession of tbe Union army until the close of the war. The population ot the city at the present time is 250,000 a large portion are negroes who speak French fluently. Canal street It one hundred sod forty leet wld, and one of the prettiest boulevards In the country and divides the city Into English and French paita; although both languages are spoken everywhere. Tbe old French market cover three blocks, It was built In 1818 there It no other such place existing In all the world it is the Babylon in business. I know of no place you can see to many strange sights or bear so many strange languages, and one can purchase anything from crabs to carpets yr caramels. The best time to visit this quaint concern is between seven and eleven o'clock in the morning. New Orleant Is very quiet and orderly, and most ot tbe white people appear tidy and respectable. It Is handsomely il luminated at night by gas tndJclectrlclty ; in this and many other things I tee a de cided improvement since my former visit four years tgo. The private residencet south of Csnal street on St. Charles, are embowered in orange and magnolia trees, the former bending beneath their load "of golden fruit. There are all klndt of trop ical treet and plantt and running rose bushes with red, pink and white buds bursting Into tplendor of color aa brilliant as tbe rainbow. Many of tbe cotton kings who have made their fortunes on the Cot ton Exchange, bave built large mansions ot granite In this portion nf the city. The North may learn many lessons In politeness and hospitality ot these South ern people-a spirit ol politeness prevails everywhere, youth gives instant pref erence to uld ane, and it Is accepted with old time grace am' a thousand and one Utile acts of consideration are extended that make ns. fuel the . warmth of their kindly . natures. Business men are so courteous and hospitable to their guests; they frequently close their nfflce and tack a ra'd on the door Inscribed "entertaining guests." ' " ' ' ' ' You want to know about the young la dies: Well, they have a creamy com plexion with a faint flush oi pink under neath, slt dreamy eyes, a round figure, tiny hands and leet, a tweet voiou and grarelul manner. It is no wonder New Orleans ynimg men uru mostly married at twenty-five, how could thev escape f The ladles nre not as ambitious, prolessionnlly as iholr northern sisters, but theie are many brave girlt with preity faces' clerk lug in tlio stores and ofilccs. ' To-day we were in Jackson's Square and saw the famous equesttian statute of Andrew Jackson. From the base (it this statute the Mayor of New Orleans linn the motto, "The Unl in Must and Shall h Preserved,'! cut away, but when Gen eral Butler came with his army, he made him chisel It on again. Adiy was spent In ihe quaint and queer old cemetery lhat are so striking in appearance 10 al visitors, wonderful beyond description an these delightful resting placet tor the dead; an and nature blending in beaut) cherulis and angels embowered in flowers, amidst groves of orange lad-aied freer the air fragrant wlth.tbe many sweot per fumes of spring.. On one of the busy streets of New Oi lcans I the old Ho'el Royal, beneatl whose dome millions of dollar's worth ! slaves have been disposed of. As I slam, hep- and close luy eyes, I imagine I cut hear the voice of the auctioneer, tin crack of the whip and tbe cries ot th children as they are parted from oarenti for the last ttm, my heart tvais an blood bolls as I think of the injustice; but the end came aud peace and frcedon reigns; and I am the guest of an old planter who It so generous, and good am kind to me, I cannot always keep back tbe tears. Here In these peaceful, bright, balmy days, radiant with sunshine and glad dened with spring-like perfumes, length ening in rosy dawn, and a sweet twilight that is musical with tongs of freedom, we rejoice and are glad, and are much de lighted with the excellency of a southern midwinter.

Near the end of 1802 the opposition of Chase and the Republican senators to Seward culminated in-an attempt to eei the latter out of the Cabinet. "The Life of Lincoln," in the February Century, fully details tbe circumstances. Mr. Lin coln so managed that Seward's resignation was followed by Chase's, and he declined to accept either. Say the authors: "The untrained diplomatist of Illinois bad thus met and conjured away, with unsurpassed courage and skill, one of the severest crises that ever threatened the iutegrity of hit administration. lie had to meet it absolutely unaided : from the nature of tbe case he could take no advice from those who were nearest him in the gov ernment. By bis bold and original expe dient of confronting tbe senators with the cabinet, and having them discuss their mutual misunderstandings under bis own eye, he cleared up many dangerous mis conceptions, and, as usually happens when both parties are men of Intelligence and good will, brought about a friendlier and more considerate feeling between tin government and the republican leaders than had ever before existed."
