I I Attend the Sunday School Washington Letter. Special to the Nkwb Tbe politicians of all parties are a fraid of the Philippine Islands question. That has been made plain by the de clinations to accept the highly honor able position of P. -ace Commissioner which the President hasroceived. Evi dently the biff politians think the chance of the treaty not meeting the popular approval outweigbts tbe honor of serving as one of the commissioners to negotiate the treaty. Secretary Day who will closo bis public career as one of tbe Peace Commissioners, bad no such fear, because be is not politician and does not expect to become one, and nev er would have held office except to oblige his personal friend, President McKlnley. In choosing Ambassador Hay as Secretary Day's successor, the President has taken another Secretary of State who is not a politician, but whose experience in the diplomatic line has been wide wide, ranging from Se cretary of an American legation and As sistant Secretary of State to Ambassa dor to Great Britain. Tbe President had no trouble la selecting men for tbe Cuban and Porto Kican Commissions, because, being strictly military, no po litical question was involved; be only had to issue orders to bave them obeyed. The officers chosen were, for Cuba, Gen. Wade, Admiral Sampson, and Oen. But ler; for Porto Ktcu, Gen. Brooke, Admir al Schley, and Oen. Gordon. Tbe Peace Commission is not to meet, at i Paris, until October 1, but tbe President will auuounoe the three American Com missioners who are to act with Mr. Day and Senator Luis, who have already been chosen, as soon as be can get en of sufficient prominence to accept tbe appointments. Consular reports show that tbe exam ple of tbe U. S. and England, in em ploying women in tbe public service, is being followed in Germany and in Nor way to a considerable extent. In Ger many the employment of women is so far confined to the postal service clerks and postmasters at the smaller offices. Tbe highest Salaries paid women post masters in Gurmany is 8285 a year, with an allowance of Sliy a year for rent. In Norway women are employed in postal and railway service. They act as rail road station supervisors, government telegraph operators, and in some instan ces even do tbe work of luggage men. Although nothing official has been said on tbe subject, it is known that the Preaident is vury glad that Dewey and Merritt captured Manila before tbe news of the cessation of hostilities reached them. It la generally believed in Washington that our possession of Manila and tbe Island of Luzou, of wbicb it is the Capital, will be perman ent, notwithstanding tbe official state meut of tbe Spanish government that it expects to regain control of tbe Pbilip p.ne Islands. Inasmuch as Admiral Dewey and Gen Merritt captured Man ila the day after the peace agreement was signed, many supposed at first that it would not count, but tbe military ex perls promptly brought out the articles of war, which provide that no armistice or even a treaty of peace is biudiug upon officials in command of armed torces un til an olfiial notice of the same has heeu sent to them. It must have bum at leant tbree days after the capture of Manila before tbe official notification of the signing of the temporary agree ment of peace, by Spain and the U. S., at Washington, could possibly have reached Drwey and Merritt. So that not only w ill the capture of Manila count but so will all tbe captures made by the ships of Dewey's fleet which were sent u raise tbe American flag up on other islanls of tbe Philippine group, and inc. dentally to capture a few Spanisn gunboats known to be bid in obure harbors. U bav.ng been decided to muster out of service as rapidly a it can bo done at least 100,IM) of the voluuteer, pres sure is being brought u. on the war de partment by those who do not fancy soldiering wuen there is no fighting to be done 1 1 gft certain regiments mus tered out.
