Nobody has seen Uncle Sam show signs of getting flurried even a little bit. Mayor Van Wyck shouldn't have refused to shake hands with the Vizcaya's commander. Many a good bot fight begins right after a conven tional hand-grasp. The football team of the Indian school at Carlisle cleared .last season $7,000. In view of this showing, the vexed question of what to do with the Indians ought to be eauly answered. If the Spanish officers allowed the waehip to be moored to a buoy wbicb was attached to a submarine mine they became r s ;ontible for the result wheth' er the mine was exploded by official or dera or not. There wasn't a word about free trade or low tariff in the recent pro nuncivmentocf ex Candidate Bryan or in the aduresses of the three political kadcra (?) who are urging fusion as against the republican party. When a man is called upon to serve as president of one of the so-called re publics of Central or South America he is not obliged to take his life in his own hands. There are plenty of re volutionists always standing around waiting to take it for him. Projectiles used by the United States army for Its great modern guns cost as follows: Solid ehot 8 - inch 8ti9.8u each; 10-inch, $144.50 each; 12- lncb, 9212 each; 12-inch. mortar saells, weighing 800 pounds $114 each, and 12- inch mortar shells, weighing lOtO pounds each, 195 each. The placing of the Ma ne in an ex posed place in the Havana harbjr, if it ' was done at all, was done by Span ish omcei s, and if the mine was ex ploded by anybody at all the Spanish of ficers an responsible and will so be helu .by Prtsident McKiniey's administr' tion. . . The work of a private secretary to congressmen is iLy adapted to women Handling large quantities of mail mat kr, truuging around to the various departments and coming in contact witn men of all kinds would be very unplea ant for a lady. It is a business that be.ODgs to men and men only should be employed. "It's just this way," taid the young lady, discutsing thi i)e Lome incident. ''Of course you know that people tain about you benind your back, but jou needn't pay any attention to it unlets it comet out iu such a waj that everj bidy knows you know about it, aud then you are obliged to be offended." Indiauapolis Sentinel. The repuolican congressional com mittee has been reconiZd with Joseph W. liaococit of Wisconsin, chairman; Hon. James Sherman, of .New Yora, "Ice ch airman; Hon. Jesse Overstreet of Indiana, secretary; Col. W. B. Thompson of Wasnington, D. C, treas urer. This is an ab.e and most exce. lent coips of workers wiio know what should be done and how to best do it. Unless the Crane faction can get hold of tne district aud county ma chines as they did the state machine at Da las, says the Express, the dem ocracy of the state will doubtless arise in their mixhtat the county primaries or conventions and rebuke the Dallas effort to hand the party of the state, bound and gagged, over to a faction at the state convention to assemble at Galveston on the second of August next, and thin demand the votes of all democrats for its cominees on the pa n of being branJed as traitors to democratic principles. In no other state would such a political outrage te submitted to by any party; in no other state could such a scheme end in 'suc cess at the polls. Is it any wonder that the party lash in Texas Is losing i.s sting? COMMODORE WINFIELDS. SCHLEY, Who Will Succeed Admiral Sirard in Com mand of the North Atlantic Squadron. EMIGRATION TO CANADA. There Bids Fair to.be a Great Emigra tion From England. A London letter says: Emigration to Canada bids fair to receive a decided boom during the coming spring end summer. The offices of the Cinaim commission on Victoria street have been fairly inundated during the pa-t few weeks with letters from different parts of the country seeking inform ation concerning desirable pain's of settlement in the Dominion, rates of fare and other particulars. This re vival of interest concerning the Do minion on the part of people anxious to leave the mother country and find a new home is doubtless due in a measure to a letter recently addressed to the mayors of the leading cities and also widely circulated through labor and trades unicn channels. In this letter Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal, the high commissioner for Canada, sets forth that the Cauadians are much gratified at -the increasing interest shown by tho United Kingdom in their affairs and that tbey hope tosaean influx of British settlers and capital to ou tivate the large areas of fern e va caut land in the Dominion. The high commissioner goes n to point out that people with capital for investment, farmers, farm laborers and dom- stic servants will be heartily welcomed by the Canadians. Domestic servants, he says, are especially greatly needed, farm laborers can rely upon getting employment at remunerative weges, while farmers can obtain free grants of land or crown grants of most fertile soil at low prices.

The evidence of Ensign Powelson and the divers regarding the upheaval of tLe keel reported is regarded in Ha' vana as oversnadowing all previous in formation in significance. But in Ensign Powelson's evidence th naval court is confronted by a con dition and not a theory, a condition so citariy demonstrated by him as to do all but carry conviction. His exploit in discovering the green-painted plates from the very bottom of the Maine, at a point in the wreckage which indi cate they were forced upward from their normal position to a height of something more than W leet, has been the sensation of the ween, coupled with the other discovery taat, in com mon with most of the otner wreckage from the snip's interior, these plates were not only heaved upward by some titanic force exerted from below, but aiso distinctly in a direction from port to starooara side. The presence of the American fleet at Key West, which is regarded at Havana as menacing, will lend addi tional zest to the greeting accorded the Vi&caja, and at tnis writing it is hard to predict what turn the demons tration ili taii. 1 heard a conspicuous American representative say that if the Viscaya and other Spanish ships entered this harbor as expected, they would be battled up here, and there' fore trapped in case a foreign fleet ap peared off Moro Castle. The Spanish fleet may cruise off the Cuban coast near Uavaua to escape this fate. Cap tain Euiate will be a.l the more hearti ly weicomo because of the fact just made known to Americans that he was one of the judges who passed the death sentence ou the Competitor prisoners. Eitiemists of the anti-American party here will endeavor to honor him cons p.cuously on that account. To make room for the Viscaya near the wreok of the Maite the Alfonxo XII, has been moved still lurtber irom the nl-fated American battleship, and the new ar rival will be thus awarded the place of honor nearest the Maine and the most frequented piers. Republic correspon dent. Moody on the Maine Disaster. Rev. Dwight L. Mooay, the evan gelist, who is holding a meeting at Xampa, reierred in a recent sermon to the Maine disaster and staled that if it was the result of treachery, re tribution would follow fast heavily on the heads of guilty ones, even though nettner the Uciied States nor Spain d scovered the perpetrators. He preached to more than 5000 people, and bis sermon created the greatest sensation ever produced in Tampa by a puoiic speaker. Washington's birthday was celebrat ed at Omaha by opening to the public the new postoiSce ia course of construc tion for the last eight years. Only the first floor of the building is ready for use yet and the building has already cost $1,30,000 and it will require $800, 000 to tit ish it in accordance with the original plans.
