Wiiilk tho progrcsa ou tho tarlff bill In tho Sennto is uot allogcthcr as rapid na Hcpubllcaua would liko to havo it to bo, it is, circumstnuccs considorcd, satiafactory. Moro bo, in fact, than many had cxpcclcd it to bo, just as tho bill is bcing mado bcttcr tban many Republicana expccted it would bo whcn tho amendcd bill waa reportcd to tho Sonato. Tho original Dinglty bill waa far moro Eatisfnctory to Republicans of tho rank aiul filo than tho bill as amonded by tho Sonato committeo, and thoy aro corrcBpondingly plcascd attho tendency of tho stecring committeo of tho Senato to rcstoro tho IIoubo sched ulo, or at lcast to mako thom nearor theni than to tho schcdulcB of tho amended bill. Whilo it caunot bo cfll cially announced that tho sugor sched ulo of tho original bill will bo rcstorcd, it Beoms to bo olmost certain that tho Dingloy Bchedlo will bo mado tho basis for tho augar schodulo that will bo in serted in placo of the ono proparcd by tho Senato Financo Committeo, which many Ilopublicans considorcd ono of tho moat objectionablo in tho amended bill. All of this makes it certain that tho prophecy that tho bill as llnally passed would bo a good ono will turn out to bo true. Tiieiie is another B in the field for tho Democratic freo silver and freo trado presidential nomination in 1000. It is Bailey of Texas, who has tho sup port of a majority of tho Dcmocrats in tho Houso in hls efforts to bo their leader. Mr. Bailey flgurea that he is quito as much of an orator as Mr. Bryan, and quito as much ontitlcd to tho nomination. After tho nomination of Bryan, no sensiblo man wonld doubt tho pos8ibility of an action by a Dem ocratic convention. Neither of thcm aro fltted for bo a responaiblo a placo as tho preaidoncy, but Bailoy haa been regarded as less of a demagogue than Bryan, although getting the prcsidcn tial fover may causo him to out-Bryan Bryan in that direction. TnE flrst rcsult of tho investigation of tho workings of tho civil sorvico rulos is tho unanimoua roport of tho committeo on reform in the civil sor vico in favor of Senator Gallinger's amondment to the general deflciency appropriation bill, abrogating all civil servico rules which apply to any claea of laborers. This amendmcnt ia in lino wilh common aenao, and will bo suro to becomo a law. Talk with Scn ntor Pritchard and other raembcrs of tho committeo makes it reasonably cer tain that other and moro important recommendations as to excoptions from tho civil sorvico rules will bo mado by tho committeo a little later. The postmaater crop will ripon early thia ycar and a big harveat is.oxpected. Postmaater Genoral Gary has an nounced that tho commissions of all postmaators that oxpiro boforo July 15 will bo conaidered as having already expired, and their succeasors appointed as early as possible. This doos not in dicato any chango in tho policy of al lowiug postmaators to aorvo a full torm of four yoara, unleas thoro aro cauaos for romoval, but it is desired that whero immediato changcs aro to bo mado, tho now ofllcial shall, bo far as posaiblo, bo in chargo of their ofllcoa at tho boginnlng of tho new fiacal year, Julyl. In accordance with a deciaion ar rived at soon aftor hia inauguration, Proaidont McKinloy has nominatcd El lis II. Roberts of New York to bo Treasuror of tho United SlateB, and Conrad N.

Ab tho London Hpcctator ox prcseos lt, " n croot atxl shvul'o iio.vo in tho Eist hns becn illowcd by Europo to cecnpo its loltcrs, and sno naa now to dlacusshow, without bloodelied, thoy may uo rcninccd." tho oniv wav stiir- gcstcd is that Huasla, Grcat Britofii und Franco should form an olllnnco. and oven thon tho London writer is not suro but tho Sullan with his poworful army of 500,000 would bo forccd by hia aoldiers to resltt. It is far from prob ablo that an alliauco of tho thrco powors unmod could bo arranged, or that, if lormeti, it wouiu not lead to oven gravcr complicatlons than that now oxtst. A roviow is mado of what England alono might occompliah against tho Sul tan, and it is ndmittcd that hostilltics would bo virtunllv rostrlctcd to eca oporatlona. A llriliah llcot could forco tho Dnrdauellea, bombard tho Sultan's palaco. hold Constautlnoplo undor its guns, oiocKnuc bmyrna anu capturo tho ialanda; but, on tho other hand, an Ot toman ormy could bo aont to Egypt to contcst tho Britiah occupatioh. No Sultan has absoluto control ovor tho Turkiah army, cspcciully ono that ia victonous, anu iiemanding tauginlo rc sults from hard campaigniug and suc cesaful battles. Nor is tho Sultau. bo' yond cortoin limits, aupremo over tho Mohammcdau races. Tho hierarchy, with tho Grand Mufti, or Shoikh-ui- ifiam, at us ncau, owns most ot tlio soil of Turkey, and is an intorprotcr of law as wi-11 as roligion. A fow days ago tho Grand Mufti declared that it is impossiblo for Ielam to givo up without coercion territory conquered from infl. dela. Abovo everything, tho Moham medan idea of government is a thc ocracy, and the Sultan in finalilica ia rcquired to bo an obedicnt son of tho church. As an aggressivo power in Egypt and tho ruler of many million Mohammc dana iu India, tho British Government haa no deairo whatovor to sco a re- ligious war stirrcd up; and sinco its sca power is all that it cau employ against Turkey, and that would bo in conclusivo, thero is little chanco that England will bo unduly prominent in tho pcnding peaco negotiatione. It ia probably moro than willing that Ruseia ehali aaaurao tho leadership in repairing tho creat damaL'e tho concort has ic- llicted upon itaclf, upon Greeco, and tho causo of civilization. Through niiamanagcment, weakneas. cowardice. ordeceit, or all combined, tho powerB aro rc nonaiblo for the birth of a ereater Turkey, and the f-ituation is full of now difllcultics.

He gained and held tlio lovo of little children and of meu and womeu, for in his writings he appealcd to young and old, and every gcntle naturo re spouded to tho maic of his honcst veree. Ho was a great lovcr of animalc. and was conetantly making pets of thom. Ho was very fond of birda, but, aa ho dieliked to aeo thcm caged, he lookcd forward to tho time when ho could add to hia now homo a good conservalory, whero tho birds might Und a homo and fly in and out among the plant. After he had onco beuame attachcd to a net of any kind it waa oxceedingly hard for him to givo it up. For soveral years he paid tho board of two old dogs at a farm. Somo of his friends thought this a foolish exponao, but ho said he would not havo tho dogs killed, as thoy had been faithfulto him in their young or days, and ho did not belleve in de Berting old friends. Several vears aro a Jerusalem donkoy wos given to tho Fiold boys, and thov namcd it Don Cresar do Buena. After they became too old to drivo with him it was a seri ous ouestion what to do wilh "Don." For aomo limo ho was boarded at a livory Btablo. His board bill soon be came quito a serious mattor. But Mr. Field would not havo him sold, for fear that the children's old comrcde might fnll into unkind hands. At last a friend in Kentucky oilerod a homo for tho donkey, and thero ho is now, spending his last days in luxurious easo on a Bluo Grass farm.

It tho story, not tho olipping dated back to 1851, when tho lato Samuel McLean of Brooklyn, widely known as a racy raconteur of a long lifetime's oxperionces, was visit ing London with his brido, who was liss Chapmen of Hartford, Conn. It was tho year in which tho Crystal palaco was opened, an oponing graced wilh tho preaenco of royalties, great porsouages and celobrities genorally; but only holders of season ticketa, cost ing 60 each, wero admittod. Tho prico Boomed a little too steop for Mr. McLean, as ho had seen pretty much everybody at ono timo or another, but ho wantod Mra. McLean to go. So ho bought a seaaon ticket for her and eent hor with somo Euglish friends. Mrs. McLean was a short, slight woman,and when sho rcached the Cryetal palaco on the day of tho oponing, tho crowd com t lotely homraed hor iu. She could not calch a glimpso of a einglo royolty or celebrity. Tears of chagrin sprang to her oyes as sho realized her diaappoint ment and tho prico of it.

Whon sho thanked him, ho aaid sirnply: " I am always glad to do a favor for an American."

Thcosophy, At a meeting of tho thcosophUts of Boston Mrs. Alico Leighton Cleather said that theosophy "providcd a key to tho work of such men of geniua as Em erson, Walt Whitman, Richard Wag ner, and others.' Among tho others Daniel Pratt of illustrious meniory ought to bo included. Anybody who will paticntly study theoEophy and tho aelect worka of Daniel Pratt, G. A.

Wo havo dono thia again and again, and nothintc sceniB to ehako our faith in our abiiity to repeat tho oporation whenever occasion ariscs. It costs us onormously, not only iu roputation, but also in monoy. and retorda our growth and progross in a thousand ways; but ncthing seems likoly to curo us of tho habit, unless it bo a great national ca lamity due to our falling in somo crisis to tako alarm quickly enough.
