The mntter has hardly reached a speculative phase as yet. but it is be? lieved bv men who have given It .-' in' thought that the railway company would entertain it proposition if It was made by the City government. It is learned from good authority that the railway company lias been losing money for years on the main? tenance of the canal through the city, while It could make use of the land now covered by water, it it were per? mitted to fill It. This, of course, would require legislative enactment, and. It is thought, could only be secured from the General Assembly ?n the Initin tlvc'of the municipal government here Froth what can be gathered as lb the situation, the Chesapeake and Ohio Hallway would profit Immensely by me closing Of the canal, for this would stop the coal of maintaining the wa terwniv as well ?s give it valuable land 'h'1' could be utilized for track?

For muny years, the Congressmen who ate lunch at the Capitol were forc? ed to do so in small, dark and unat? tractive quarters. Frequently when they had visitors. Seals were hard to get, and there was a very crowded con? dition generally. That was under the old regime. But when the Democrats took charge of the situation lust April, when the extru session began, they de? creed that' along with other reforms they would entirely revolutionize the House restaurant They proceeded to do it. They turned out the man who had held the sinecure lor many years, und elected a new caterer to the gas? tronomic wants who had a strictly Democratic record. They believed that a man who was a good Democrat ought to make a good dispenser of congres? sional pie and other eatables to tickle the Congressman's ticklo appetite. So| they got a Democrat. When he got his commission he did not like the looks of the quarters left by his Republican predecessor. Accordingly. all the shelves, bins and Mooring have been taken up and are being rebuilt' strict? ly according to the best Democratic methods. It Is going to be a Democra? tic restaurant, the new caterer said to? day, and be is going to make a lot ofj important ehaniros. He Is going to givej much more space to the Congressmen and their friends, and there will be' a place tor the newspaper men. tho clerks and other attaches of the House, and. in addition to this, there) will be a dairy lunch. But. he added, we want to sirve everybody alike. Democrat, Republican and Populist, if there are any. Everything will be in good shape b> the beginning of the session. P. H. McG.
