Senator Proctor is tho mover of a propoaition to amond tlio Constitution of the Unitcd States, oxtending tho President's ofllcial torm to sx yoars and making hitu incligiblo for a eecond election. Supplementary to this amend mont, tho Senator would lengthen to three ycars the term of Reprcsentatives in Congress. In a recont spcech Sena tor Proctor tlius Bummar'ized his rea Bons for the changes proposcd: First. A longer Fresidentlal term and Ineligiblllty for re-eloctlon aro moro ln ac cord wlth the ldeaa and purposea of tho framera of tbe Constitutlon than ls the pros ent Bystem as It haa developed ln practlcal reaults. Second. The propoaed change la not rad( cal or revolutlonary, but 1b in the llne of true conaervatlBm. It ls a change of the etter to prosorvo tho splrlt of the Constitu tlon. Thlrd. Ue-ellglblllty 1b wrong ln theory and vicloua in practice, for lt reaulta in the uae of tho patronago of hia ofllco by the Prealdent for the promotlon of hia cbancea ot re-electlon, or elae subjects hlm to the Imputation of such uae. Fourth. The change wlll moro thor oughly divorce the leglalatlve and ezecutlve branchea ot the Qovernment, an end most strongly dealred by the Constltutional Con vention, Flftb. Even lt the present aystem waa wlse ln tho beglnnlng, the cbanged condl tlona, the growth of tlio country ln popula tion, eapeclally ln cltlea, the great lncroase in our territory. and tho erowlnc danger of sudden popular rovulslons make the change now dealrable. Blxth. Thoreby tho bualnean lntoreata ot tho country wlll be aavod from auch fre miHnt dlaturbancea. and the tlmo and ez- petiBO incldent to campaigna wlll be pro portionately redncod. Soventh. By lengthenlng tho torms of KepreHentatlves to tbroo yoars, laws wlll be better conHldered and wlll havo a longer and fairer trlal beforo thelr frioudH go out of power in Congress. In discusaing his propositton, Sena tor Proctor roviewed tlio hlatory of tlio adoplion of tlio four yeara term, wilh ro.cligiblllty, by tlio couveution ttint framod tho Conatitutiou. IIo ahovecd that, on the subject of tho longth of tho prosidontial term and eliglbitlty to re olection, there was u grwl vnrioty of opiniou amouK tho iii' iubP'H of lliecon vontion, and, wltlml, much uusettled judymont aiul ,vai ill ttion of inlioil. Tno convc.nti' n onco voted to ninkc tho president's olli'ial lorm alx yoars, wilhout lmlintblllty, thon voktl for tho orlidnal propositlon of a Bovon-ycarB torm, wlth hicllglbllity to n second olcction, but flnnlly, aftor linving do vlBcd tho plnnof clioosing tho prcsidont by au olcctornl collogo, wlth its liralta llons as to tlio cllgiblllty of ckclors, adoptcd tho Constltullon as it alanda, in tlils partlculnr, nt tho prpBont tlmo. Tho Senator doca uot clalm orlglnal ity for his amoudmotit. IIo simply proposes to put an old propositton in tho way of adoptiou. In supporl of tho changes, ho citoa tho toatlmony of tuany cmlnont Btatcsruon, and tho ac lion of polltlcal assemblagCB, from Juckson nnd his timcs to tho presont. IIo shows thnt " from tho vcry founda tlon of tho govornmctit many of our ablcst nnd most thoughlful public mcn havo favorcd an nmondment to tho constitution prohiblling tho rc-election of a prcsidcnt." Tho Echemo Of nu clectoral collego has fnilcd to rcmedy tho ovlls that woro fcnrcd, if a prcsi dont Bhould bo oligiblo to rc-olcction. Tho very ngoucics that tho ilectoral collego was devised to oxcludo from parlicipatlon in tho cholco of a presi dent, bave como iu through tho instru menlality of tho nominutin convon lion t dotninatc the sdection of a can didatowhen theexeuullve is an afpirjut fi.r ri-nominatioii. Therefore Seuator Proctor, by tb xplicii prnhibit on of tliu c jnctitulion, wouid put up thi; bnrs against a re-tl-c(ion. " IU-fliiiibi ilj," he ilpclarts, " ia wrou in tlieuiv, vi cious in praitice, and tliort- should bo n dellnite prohibitiou n;iust it." Peoplo who remember the circum- stauci'8 of the untioual electicm of 1804, and how important to tbe 'succnnolul prosccution of tho Wnr of Iho Kebcl- lion Iho re-tlection- of Lincoln was deemed lobe, wlll antlcipate the great objection to an absduto prohibltion of re-cligibllily. On this point Senator Proctor says: "The greatoat objection of whlch I am awaro to this propoaed chango ia that it might deprlve ua, ln tlmo of soino great na tlonal oxlgency, of the Bervices ot a leader who Beems to be peculiarly equipped to be at tho head of tho Qovernment. Such a thlng ia possible, yet I can hardly concelvo of an emergoncy in whlch one man, and one man only, shall bo Qt to be at the head ot the Government; and lt ia hard to belleve that an emergency wlll arlso that wlll laat for moro than alx yeara, the term for whlch a Prealdent will be choaen under the pro poaed amendment. It is Impoaslblo to per fect any detall of a constltutional ayatem bo that it may not work unfavorably in aome emergency. Constltutional syatems, how evor, though lntended to cover all exigen cies ao far as possible, are dealgned moro to moet the ovory day llte and existence of the Government than aome exceptional com plicatlon that may never occur. The quea tlon ia, how to safeguard .tho public inter esta in the most caaes and in tbe largest degree; how to obtain the most disinter ested admlnlstratlon of the Government from day to day of our national existence. If a slngle term wlth prohibltion of a Becond wlll do that, then we need not fear tho other. In thls very connectlon DeTocque vlllo aays that ' to reserve an expedient for extraordinary perlls, the country has been expoaod to dally dangerB.' " Tho buainesB intcrests of the country would bo conserved by tho change. On this point the Senator argucs with force and quotes the Bubjoined remark, at tributed to Mr. Depew: Everv four yeara bualno88 is virtually paralyzed for fully alx months, partly on accountof tho utter absorptlon of tlio peo plo ln the canvasa and partly because such lssues are ralaed in the campaign that buai ness conditiona are bound to be affected by tho result. We havo naruiy recovoreu irom tho otlects of ono Fresidential campaign before we are plunged into the mldst of another. Witb a aix-year torm and a con stltutional prohibltion of re-electiou, we would have a rresiuent iree uuring nis term ot ofllce from any temptation touse his power in any way to Becure a renomina tlon or re-election, and free also from the auaplclon of such an attompt, whlch is al most as bad." If the chango might lengthen the torm of a bad president, the change ac- complished would carry with it its own rcmedy in the increased care and dc liberation in the selection of candidateB. The bad president, if ono should bo bo chosou, would be hedged about by the laws and by Congress, and the ter rora of impeachmont, wbile the gnod president's policies would havo tho longer timo for their dovelopment, and for tho formation of just conclusions as to their wiBdom. Conditlons bave changed since tho conatitution waa adopted, and tho timcs domand that somo provisions of tbe constitution should change wilh theni. The modi- Ocation proposed by Senator Proctor is ono of these changes, a modiflcation of detall, not of prlnciple, and the Sen ator 8upporta his propoaition with rea- Bonlng that 1b of conclusivo forco. Bespocting hia secondary proposl- tions Senator Proctor is equally forci- blo. Ho Bays: The extenalon of the terms of Itepresen tatlves ln Congreaa should go wlth the ex tenalon of the prealdentlal term. The prac tlcal beneQts sure to reault from thls change and the advantagea ot lt to leglala tlon are selt evldent. Now the Reproaenta tlvea have hardly concluded thelr llrstsea slon before they como up for re-electlon. Tlils long sesalon muat noceaaarlly become longer wlth the growth of the country. The leglalatton ot the long hobsIoii has had no trlal, and often, I may say uaually, iu the caao of important new legialatlon ou llnes of party pollcy, thero ls a popular reautlou before it can bave a fair trlal. Tlien coinea tho ahort sesiloi), ln whlch little ls ilono ex cept to paaa approprlatlon hllla. Wlthl a tureo yeara' term, uiHieaii oi tuo present alngle luordlnatuly long sesslon, thero would be two seasloiiH unllmltod by tho end of u CougreHH, and of moro moiler.ite duratloii, wlilcli would practtcally tuiarly double tho tltne for dellboratlon and eon Hldoratn legialatlon. Tho laws of tho llrst HOHslon would hiive bnoii ln operatlou for a year or more, whioh would give time for a falrar trlal aiul cousidoratlon by Ihe peoplo, with inueh Iosh danger of too hasty IhuIhIh tlou unil too lianty I'oniliMiinatloti of luws wheil onre niailo a ilniiyei tn liicti tlio oountvv ih more und mnru a ibj 'Cled ua lt grows dlilor.

Of courso tho protest, by ahowlng that tho government of Ni cnrngua alrcady regords tho Cnnal Company ns having forfoited all the concession8 grantcd it by that govern ment, will kill tbo present Nicaragua cannl bill, but lt will also go much furthor. II may kill tho arbilratiou tronty rccently nugoUated bolween tho United Slalcs and Greut Hrilnin. Il has been openly chargcd ou tbo floor of the Sennte that f tJKlith diplouiuc was workuig, through the combinulioti of thoso three little Cunlrnl Ameiican rppublice, lo put Ensdanil in u position whert- itcould eilher coittrol or bae a ftbnro in controllingthe Nicaragua ahip cauul. This may or may not be true, but so long ua there are grottuds for suspicioti, there will bo daugor that the arbilralion treaty will b8 rejccted by the Senale. If thero is ono policy upon whieh tho Souate is prncticnlly a unit, it is that tho Nicnragun cannl shall, if cornplotcd, bo controlled by the United States; und if it be ahown that this qucslion migbt have to bo submittcd to arbilratiou, with tho castingvote in the hands of a European monarch, thon goodbyo to the arbitration treaty. The Senators who havo oponly protested againat tho public clamor for immedi ato ratiQcation of tho troaty, on tho ground thnt it was too important a matter to bo hurriedly acted upon, ro gard this Nicaragua canal incident as a vindication of their position. Secretary Olnoy, howover, doesn't take that view of lt, and would not havo been so prompt in Bending that protest to tbe Senate had ho supposed that it would cause addilional delay in acting on the treaty. The refusal to appoint a woman to a vacant $1,500 clorkabip in tho War Department, for whieh aho had passed a very difflcult examina tion and was tho only ono oligiblo un der Givil Service rules, is likely to be made the subject of a Congressional in veatigation. The examination required that tho applicant should bo able to translato into Englisb, militaiy works in French, German, Italian and Span ish; to do type-writing in all of these languages; to do proof-reading and prc paro manuscript for tbe prees, to bo familiar with library methods, cata loguing, indexing, etc; also to be tested in the use of tho English lau guago and literary compositiou. Mlea Maud Stalnaker of Washington, D. C., was the only ono who was nblo to poBB the oxaminntion, but tho War Depart ment refusea to appoint her to tho po sition becauso she ia n woman. The vacancy in tho Senate from Dol awaro ia going to cauBo a flght at tho present session. Whether it will be a tbree-cornored flght iByet to bo settled. The Committeo on Eloctions has not roported on the petition of Col. Dupont to bave his applicatiou for tho seat re openod; tho crodentialsof Mr. Addicks, who claims to havo been olcctod by ono of tho Dolawaro legislatures aitting last week, have alroady beon presonted to the Senate aud thoae of Mr. Kenney, tho ailvor democrat who claims to have been elected by the other legislature, will be presented this week, and pre aented, too, by Senator Gray, the Clevo land democrat. lleutfll Goltl.
