Nobody seems to bate any idea ihst the amended arbitration treaty withEngland.which has been favor ably reported to the Senate, will be acted upon at this session. Io fact, its friends would be afraid to force a vote at thi time lest it should result in rejection ol the treaty. One of the legacies of the Hirri eon administration is a treaty that binds the United States to pay 16,000 a year towards the support of a monarchy and an almighty poor specimen of monarchy at that. The treaty in question was made with Germany and England and the money goea to pay the expenses of t semi-aavage King of 8amoa A year or so ago PresideniClevehtnd recommended legislation looking towards the abrogation of this trea ty, and each year there has been a protest made when the House reached the item of the Diplomatic and Consular appropriation bill carrying that $6,000. This week when the item waa reached Repre (tentative McMiltin moved that it be struck out, because he did not think it right that our people should be contributing money to the sup port of a monarchy anywhere and under any circumstances, but bis motion was voted down, not be cause a majority of thellouse favor ed the appropriation, but because they considered that as long as the treaty is allowed to stand we are in honor bound to pay our share of the money.

If Senator Morgan pursues bis present plan be will move to take op the Nicaragua Canal bill during tbe morning hour Monday. He expects the motion to be antagoniied, and in that event will secure & vols which will, be thinks, demonstrate tbe strength of tbe canal bill. He expects tbe vote to be largely in tba majority, but whatever the result be probably will announce his abandonment of tbe bill for the present session on account of tbe determined obstruc tion to its paesage, while at the same time he will declare bia pur pose to press the measure with more determination tban ever at the next session. .

The report that the poll-tax i being paid more Jargely tbi season tban usual seems'lobe a vindication of tba assertion of the counsel tor the taxcollector in the poii-tai eases, as it was called, lately de- j cided by the Supreme Court, madej in argument, that whenever the negro felt an interest in voting be would pay his taxes or they would be paid for him by those desirous of his vote, and therefore that tbe requirement of paying taxes as a condition of voting is of little value as a protection against negro votes Since McKinley's election there has been a revival of the concern of th negro population about elections, and many will be led to pay taxes with a view to qualifying themaelvea to participate. In thia connection is presented to the readers of the Clarion-Ledger th argument of Judge Campbell before the Supreme Court in tbe case mentioned, which presents the grounds on which be contended that the poll-tax was collectible by seizure and sale of any property of tbe person owing (he tax. Tbe opinion of the court was published when drlivered, arid readera will be able from a perusal of th argument to see why it was held by many that nothing was exempt from sale for taxes. The argument shows clearly bow easy it is for the legislature to make the poll-tax collectible and thus com pel payment by negroes of some ot the heavy cost of educating their children. The effect of the decision is to free the negroes, for tbe most part, from contributing to this ob ject by making the poll-tax non- collectible by law. The argument showc that the legislature miy change thi and make the tax col lectible by altering the list in non taxable property. The decision is that non-taxable property cannot be made liable for poll-tax. It is for the legislature to say what property is non-taxable and thus avoid all constitutional objection to the seizure and sale of any property. Clarion-Ledger.

In asmuch as New York society would have none of Mrs. Langtry, her cbaperon'e chances of observation were limited, to say the least. She may have met treadle uebhard and some of the other rollicking bucks of the time, but it is hardly fair to take them or what they did to entertain Mrs. Langtry and Mrs. Labouchere as a fair basis for criti cising our Bueiiil structure as a whole.

Fujiyama was chosen as tho ob jective pmnt oi the expedition for a number of reasons, the principal one being on account of its sym. metrical form. "Upon this magnificent cone," said Prof. Mendenhal, "we found a shrine to which thousands of pil grims journey every yearand wbicb was in charge of a Buddhist priest. We made delicate overtures to the priest to allow us to work in the shrine, which ho at first rejected with indignation. Ultimately he allowed us to use the place, and our instruments were moved in. In the centre of the templo was set up our pendulum, and four days were occupied in observing its vibrations. never relaxing vigilance.
