The beautiful garment of unanimi
which clothed the republican maj
at the opening of Congress is
rent astunder during the hollday
wms and there ts reason to believe
when Congress reconvenes the
sqpblican brethren will dwell togeth.
Ii a harmony very similar to that
uted to the famous cats of
Likenny. Already there are the
protection wing and the modifie.i
tiou wing and it is not impro
'e that there will develop an ad
.slstration wing in the near future.
members who composed the first
ed faction are, from conviction
the pursunason of their favored
es, committed to the mrst
me protection. They are un
ag to concede the lowering of the.
on the least important schedule,
though by so doing the pacifica
of the Phillipines may be ex
ad or the annexation of Cuba
The second faction believes in some
cations of the House Phi;ippine
bill because they conitider that
concessions will further the
of General Chatffe and the
UCommtssion. They are n fa:vor
grantiug some measure of recipro
to Cuba, notwitlh.tanding the
ests of Mr. Oxnard and the
ishments of the beet sugar
. They are, to a slight extent,
ia in the policy of President
!ley laid down-at Buffalo. But
they are not prepared to go to
eztent to insure Cuban prosperity

ble reporting of this measure, there is
ji- still a majority of the committee
j- against it. Senators McMillan and
is Nelson are frank in their stateme'ts
:1y of disapproval of the bill and it is
ve known that Senator Elkins is not well
he disposed towards it. It is further
.h. believed that even if the bill were to
at get through the Senate it would be

eŽt ator Ianrna that, in case the hill

prove a most delightful one, but, as
Sonly a few members of the bHousi,
1e could be selected and all would pro- I
r bab'y be called to account by their
constituents for voting for such an
t expensive junket, its fate in that
it body is dubious.
t The extent to which the sentiment I
,y in favor of furthr consideration of
the merits of the Panama canal route
1 is grailg is quite remarkalh!e and it
r is by no means likely that either the
Mt Morgan or the Hepburn bill will pass t
n the Senate without an extensive and
;o comprehensive discussion of the
merits of the Panama route. There
e is no partisan division on the subject
o and opinions are being formed re
n gardless of party affiliation. While I
there is no tendency to underestimate
s the efforts of the Walker Commission
n to arrive at a correct discussion, it is q
it believed that the price of $109,000,- e
000, which the French company a
o placed on their property, was sufl--.
t. cient in itself to warrant the Com
e mission in its adverse recommends- t
e tion and now that it seems probable c
that the plant can be bought for a
e $40,000,000, many members believe
that it should receive further consid
I eration.

TheJanuary numberof The Ladies' H
Home Journal is a teg'ilar store
house of interesting facts and good
(clcon, and in point of illustratlons is
one of the most beautiful issues ever
given the public. It opens with aE
page showing some of Miss Brownell's p
artistic photographs, then tells "How
I Uncle Sam Guards Has Millions," and Si
presents Mr. Kipling's actual exper
ience in "raising" a baby lion-a
really remarkable piece of writing
Cardinal Gibbons contributes a fear- 6
less article on "The Restless Woman," 2
and James Whitoomb Riley's "Home
Folks" are described and pictured.
Plans for "A $6000 House and a
Garden" are given, and Will Bradley
shows the dionng-room of "his house."
The editorial page is given up to
extracts from sixty eight letters re
lating to the "cramming" system in
the schools. It is pathetically power,
ful. In the way of iction are the
second part of "The Russells in Chi
cago," tue conclusion of Miss Portor's
"A Gentleman of the Blue Grass,"
and of Frederick M. Smith's delight
ful romance, "Christine." and "The
Wisdom of the Dove," a clever short
story by Lilian Brooks. The pictorial -
features are headed by the second
part of The Journal's picture story
of "What a Girl Do'es at College,"
wh ch shows the athletic side of col
lege life, and there are two page's
devoted to pretty rural scenes "Along
Country Roads." Eight pages are
given up to the new fashion delpart
ment under the editorship of Virginia
Louis Ralstou, and all of the regular
editorial departments are excellent.

Nothwithstanding a widely current

dead, he never was in better health.
t and never did a harder and more
successful year's work than that just
closing. He has just completed his
large and splendid Almanac for 1902

tional reputation. For a quarter of
a centnry Mr. Hicks has grown in
Sreputation and usefulness as the
people's astronomer, and forecaster
of storms and the character of com
ing seasons. Never were his weather
forecasts so sought after as now, his
timely warning of a serious drouth
this year having saved the people
from loss and suffering. Millions of
bushels of wheat were harvested
through his advice to plant crops that
would mature early. The American t
