Tiik difference of sentiment with which thr railroad managers view the force ami application of the in terstate commerce law before arid after the strike Is remarkable. They pleml for its protection before, and defy it power afterward. Majiciii'9f.tt9 has an "arbitra tion and conciliation conituisinn," run. in ling of three nu-njlxTH. When a atrike oernrs, it Is the tlnty of the rotnmiftftion to investigate on the gmnnd and bj working with the strikers and employers, attempt to h.irmoniae their differences to con ciliate. The commission cannot act as a heard of arbitration nntil the men go to work, in other words, the law d cs not permit the commission to arbitrate while a etriLc is in pro gress. Ots. T. J. lltsntiw-ox Has Wen again U'aten for the republican turn ination for congress in the new Kiev, enth district. Beaten once bj his own partv this jear after having rendered 20 years of ditinguihed service in congress, during which he, more than any other man, secured the Hennepin canal appropriations, th death of the nominee gnve him a chance to try again to succeed him self at lcat in his party's estimation ami a far as its influence went. Yes terday at Strcator, however, he was again turned down, the republican convention naming Henry Mayo, of Ottawa. " At Central-Music hall. Chicago, tomorrow evening. Franklin Mae Veagh will formally ojn?n his cam paign tor the United States senator ship. As the chosen leader of the Illinois democracy he will announce the issues upon which the state can vass Is to be conducted. With Mr. MacVcagh as their regularly accred ited leader, the democrats have a de cided advantage over the republicans in the present campaign. So far as the contest for the senatorship is concerned, the republicans are un able to present a united front. The Party is divided into factions, each Laving its own candidate. Mr. WII.oir.rjAa.wer. No better reply to'the gibes and taunt ot the protectionist agents in congress could be made than this ut terance of Congressman William I. Wilson in accepting rcnominatiou Thursday: itut all this does not imply dis satisfaction with our own party as a whole, or distrust as to its meanings and intentions. If the closeness of the rote in one honse of congress gave opportunity for a few to com bine ugainst the people and against all the rest of their party and ol struct its faithful efforts to redeem its pledges, the overwhelming mass of the democrats in the country are subject to no just criticism. Thev have kept the faith. They have been true to their principles. We may ourselves denounce or bitterly con demn those that failed ns in this tight. We are not. therefore, sub ject t condemnation by our oppon ents. If we have done less in the way of relieving the people's burdens than we had hoped and promised, they would have done nothing at all. If we have anywhere uncovered a trust and found it too strong for our complete dislodgment in the first attempt, we have never failed to find them stur dily and solidly arrayed for the de fense. The weapens'with which mo nopoly has fought ua they have forged and tempered and supplied. The intrenchmcnts and fortresses behind which privilege has shielded itself from our attack they have bnildod for it, stone by stone, and stronghold by stronghold. This Is something to ' which the Keeds and McKinleys, etc., cannot blind the eyes ot the people. If cor porate monopoly has been found so strong as to resist a party armed with the mandate of the people it is because it ha been built up and in trenched by the very men who now presume to sneer at the victims of its insolent might. It is the protec tionist! who are to blame for the in adequacy of the tariff bill, not the revenue reformers. Mr. Wilson goes to his constituency with an unequivo cal certificate that he has done his' duty cleanly and fearlessly. FIGURES ON HOMES. Interesting Statistics Given by the Census Office.

An That Is Keeded For tha American Peo ple to Start I p Again. Everybody who has money is tired of getting 1 per cent or no per cent for it Every business man who has been lying on his oars is crazy to do some thing or engage in something he under stands. Every enterprise which has been dormant is feeling its way for cap ital and confidence. Labor is every where euger for work and employers still more eager to open their works. It only requires the normal machinery of the country to move in a normal way, for consumption to again make demands upon production. When the history of tha late panic comes to be written and the troubles in cident to it, ono of its remarkable fea tures will be the effect upon railway traffic, upon e business of 65,000,000 people, of thoso who had to and those, who had no noed to economize, but did so in every possiblo way. When ouo family uses tho old stove with the cracked lids and pastes paper over tho broken pane of glass aud does not renew any of the furniture or crockery, when they wear last year's clothes and go from food which might bo luxuries to food which simply supports life, the eco nomies are demonstrated which follow a total or partial loss of income. Precisely that process has been going on for two-thirds of a year among 1)0 per cent of onr population. It has made clear the fact that tiie American people, who are charged, and probably justly, with being tlio most extravagant people in the world, can live as closely as any body when it becomes necessary. Bnt the effect upon merchants, middlemen and carriers in the volumoof their busi ness and their profits is disastrous be yond any process which has ever affect ed the business of the country. Chaun cey M. Depew iu New York Tribune, Not So Easy to Entertain Royalty. Apparently tho entertaining of royal ty has its little disadvantages. When tho Princess of Wales accepted Lady Dudley's Invitation to hot danco last week, she stipulated that only-150 peo ple were to be asked. When the list of tho chosen was sent to Marlborough House, so many were struck off that only SO unmarried girls were left, several of the hostess' own near relatives being ruled out. The consequence was tho ball was a failure, for tho few guests in vited could hardly Cud each other in tho vast rooms of Dudley House, Lon don Correspondent.
