THE ACCURSED FORCE BILL.
it» cate» Willing to ftaorlflro tho ry to Have Themselves. Co New York Herald. The Force bill has been knocked out for a time at least. The omnipotent mon sense of the American people may yet compel its permanent retirement. Even the frantic partisanship of Re publican senators and bosses has been forced to an unconditional surrender. It is a blow from which President Harrison will recoil, for he based high its passage. ut we can easily spare Harrison and be resigned to the doom of his personal " ambitions it the people can be saved. We extend to Gorman of Maryland, to the brave army of Democrats and to I the few Republicans who defiled the ' venges of the administration I hearty congratulations. They have made a glorious fight, not for party, but for union without sectional hatreds and animosities. The condition of affairs in tho Senate f chamber during the last few weeks has 1 been a ghastly sarcasm on statesmanlike procedure. The Republicans lessly lost their heads. As an organiza tion they have suffered from moral prostration since 1876, when they stole the Presidency and gave it to that poor creature Hayes, whose highest ambition I« that posterity may forget him. Tho shock of that infamy upset the patriotic status of the party and pro duced a sort of political dementia. As the tamed lion after lapping blood is n< > longer tame, but thirsts for more blood with unquenchable appetite, so the Re publicans, having supped on that fraud, lost all sense of honor and became pos sessed by the lascivious lust of power. Their greed of office has supplanted every noble impulse of earlier days. In *01 they were ready to sacrifice them selves to save the country; in '91 they are willing to sacrifice the country to save themselves. The orgulous majority in the Senate declared that the minority obstructed the legitimate business of the session. It was a palpable and malignant false hood. The naked truth Is that the mi nority have been engaged in obstructing the Republican attempt to inaugurate a new period of disorder and civil The Democratic minority are the servative element of the Senate. They demand that tho customs, traditions and usages which have governed them for the iast hundred years shall not be tam S ered with; that debate shall bo con ucted after the manner which has made the Senate a dignified, a delibera tive and useful body. The Republican majority, on the other hand, are both radical and revo lutionary. They would uproot and de stroy freedom of speech; they demand that the presiding officer shall not rec ognize a senator who first gets the floor if he happens to be a Democrat, but shall arbitrarily ignore him and give the preference to any Republican. Moreover, the Force bill of Iloar and the closure resolution of Aldrich do not come under the head of legitimate busi . The first is a purely political measure, whose sole purpose is to give the party another four years of power; the second is a tyrannous and contrivance, a base preliminary, which alone can make the passage of the t Bavonet bill possible. The situation, stated in cold blood, is just this : The Force bill has of getting to a vote unless freedom of debate ho have hope ardly chance suppressed. The Democrats therefore to be gagged, the rules of a century were to be thrown aside, and the Republicans hoped to override the opposition by sheer force of superior numbers. Who, then, were the obstructionists ? Who were conspirators and revolution ists? Were they Democrats, who have all along been ready to do the legitimate business for which the Senate w they Rcpublieaufe, who no legitimate business iasures for the veiled, or were declared that should be done until perpetuation of their party had been at tended to ? And you will have to look behind and beyond the Senate to find the more than any other is responsible for this chaos and peril. He keeps himself cautiously hidden fn but fro rho public criticism; _ his temporary—thank Hcav it is only temporary! White House he directs and approves of gag rule and bayonets.

It i open secret that he thinks •asures afford him his only chance to be President in '92. Short sighted, narrow politician that he is, he lacks the courage tions known, but resorts to trickery and artifice, to chicane and demagogy. His game, however, is as shallow as his con science. He may cheat the people for awhile, but the disguise will by and by drop and Benjamin Harrison will bi these make his c man in a large place, who substitutes cunning for policies and damns the country that he may satisfy his personal ambition.

A Strenuous Effort to Be Made to Settle the Struggle. says : The prosp adjustment or Lynn morocco strike and lockout, pending for over five months, were never brighter than at present. Mayor Fogg, who is interesting him self in the movement to heal the breach, says: "I have hopes of bringing about some settlement which i interests of the city. I have interviewed several manufacturers, and find there is a willingness to settle the matter. The workmen are willing to go back on any terms that will not lower their manhood and it will be my zealous endeavor to aid in putting an end to the difficulty." The main difficulty is that the manu facturers will not treat with tho work K nights of Labor. If tho strik ing and locked-out employees can ob tain recognition for their organization they would undoubtedly return to work upon almost any terms. It is thought that over 500 men of tho estimated 1,200 who were thrown out of work during the earlier part of the strike and lock-out are at present unem ployed. Thomas B. Maguire, general lecturer of the executive board of the Knights of Labor, has been in conference for eral days past with leading manufact urers, and his efforts to bring about a settlement of the difficulty are meeting with a considerable degree of success. Mayor Fogg has determined upon a definite plan of action. He purposes se curing a committee of three representa tive citizens to wait upou the manufact urers and see if something cannot be done to settle the trouble. The board of trade will be asked to intercede in the matter.

OUR WOMEN WALK. Now, the material side of knowing how to walk is unknown to the New York woman. When she goes in for being stately she takes two long steps and three short ones, and when she is in a hurry she trots. A woman trotting, especially if she is waving a muff to stop a street car, is much more ridiculous than the woman who is doing teur tobogganing down a high stoop, and she ought to realize this, and cease her frantic rush. A French woman hasten, and you are never conscious of anything ridiculous in her walk. THE BEST WALKE everv COUNTRY are the southern women, who from nat ural indolence put the foot down with ease, and they must land first o taught early in life that n their toes and not on their heels. The western woman walks with emphasis, as if she meant to get there, and, usually, 1 think she does. The Philadelphia woman has a little bit inclination to mince, and an casional startled air about her, were afraid of being quick in 1; ments. To walk well, have a if she her move comfort able shoo, that fits the foot, with a me dium high heel,and always put the toes down first; this gives a good curriage, throws the hips in their proper position, intensifies their springy movement, and makes the passing by you very if the fact that you are well shaped about the shoulders, and have a graceful curve fn consci the. waist down. A 'ho walks well is a pleasure to look at, and every man who knows her feels himself honored by being seen with her. DIAMONDED SLIPPERS. The real fin de siede is for the man of heart to give you not gloves, not rs, not sweets, though these may but slippers. ; sli y ( all come i Slippers such as Cinderella pers that glitter with buckles of g» and silver, sometimes of precious stones, and that have the highest of heels and the narrowest and most pointed of »es. With them also comes a wish that your feet may go in pleasant places, or the slippers come with a hope that you may walk through life beside him who .'ith all the intensity of his heart, it's very touching. Fnt 1 think tho most touched girl in New York \v ho got a pair of white satin slip pers, and on the toe of each, instead of a buckle, was a beautiful diamond but terfly, that might be hair ornament when it was not do ing duty on the slipper.
