8ijN8 of life are visible at tbe capitol.
: Some of the more industrious congress
men have begun to prepare for the corns
ing session There have been preliminary
meetings of ccrtnin committees or rather
of quorums of certain committees, and
the preparation of bills has begun so that
the nccessiry business may be reached
with as tittle delay as possible after tbe
assembling of congress. As usual it is pre
dicted that very little beyond the money
bills, which are necessary for the expense
of the government, will receive much at
tention this winter. Many earnest, tun
scientious legislators intend to do more if
possible, but np to the present time con
gress has found itself too lazy in the lone
sessions anil too buy in the short, to ac
In the report of Postmaster Gt'ncral
Vilas, which was made public severul
days ago, it is shown that the United
States leads all tbe world in its mail fa
cilities, and in the number of letters sent.
The letters mailed in this country during
the year were more than were mailed in
France, Germany and Austria combined.
The number of postofflces iu this country
now is 53,614. The report also shows a
great deal in the line of reform. Oitiog
to the reduclinn of the rate of postage
on second class matter and iIip enlsr;;!--mentof
the unit of weight for first class
matter, the expenses of the postal ilt
psrtmeot were expected to exceed i!i
revenue for the fiscal year ot' 1SSS a:
least f 9.UO0.IXH). A ilerrensA if expen
ditures, however, has made the actual
deficit f3,0UU,0UU less than lti.it, ai:d the
deficit for the current year will be still
less. Figures show that the net increase
of revenue in the department was 3 2 per
cent, and that the volume of business by
which it was gained increased over 7 per
cent. That is another proof, which com
mercial and other statistics establish, tiifc'
there has been a steady return of business
prosperity duiing the past year and a
half. That is the way ia which the
country goes to ruin under democratic
rule, which must be very depressing to
the republican prophets of evii.
Some of the secondary bureau chiefs
and department officials arc falling into
the habit of padding their annual reports
with newspaper puffs, extracts from the
letters of friends and other testimonials
as to tbeir efficiency, much in the manner
of patent medicine advertising. This is
very properly stigmatized 'by the N.-w
York .S'kjj as a ridiculous practice. The
San instances the report of one head of
a department in which ct Jess than
twenty-one pages, orone-Sftlt of the en
tire report, arc devoted exclusively to
compliments and flattery of tbe commis
sioner, all prinwd at lue expense of the
people. The report of another high
official has a page of the same sort of
stuff. We agree with the Sun that the
proper judges of the efficiency with which
the officers of the departments do their
work are, first, their immediate superiors,
and. behind tbem. thy peopb who are
taxed to pay the salaries. The opinion.
of subordinates, admiring personal
friends, volunteer correspondents and
rural newspajiers are not required ia the
annual reports. The administration
ought to put a stop promptly to this ri

Gen. Anson G. McCook, who haa been
traveling in Europe on bis weddinp trip. rn-t
with a rebuff in tbe English house of coin
mons at the opening of parliament whrh is
characteristic of EngUu official courtly
The general happened to he in tbe douse of
parliament on the day Itefontheopeninp and
it occurred to him incidentally thut without
waiting on the American minister to secure
the courtesy he would wait on tbe clerk of
the house of commons and so secure the favor
from an official of the corresponding rank
with his own. Ho accordingly wrote on bia
card, on which was printed plain Anson G.
McCook. the title "Clerk of the United States
Senate, and sent it in to the clerk of luo
house of commons.
After ho bad been waiting pome time a
flunkey came, out and called out his name.
When the general responded the, f!unk-y
asked abruptly: '-What do you want with
with tbe clerk of the house of commons"
The general answered that ho Uvit ed
to see the opening of parliament, Tne
flunkey went away and remained some time.
When he came back there was the same call
for '-McCook," and when he stepped forward
he got this bort. curt reply in three words:
"No room, sir." Some men would have !een
angry, but it was not so with the g-n-raL
In telling of it to a friend he said: "I pre
sume if the clerk of tlie house of commons
ever comes to Washington and sends in his
card tome I shall rush into the lobby, seize
him by both hands, take him into my private
room, fill him up w itfc goc-d whisky, and then,
if he wants to seethe senate at work, and
there are no vacant scats, I shall probabiy
give him my own chair and sta-id up nryself.
In any event I will show him a bit of Ameri

A Bouquet for the ftoltan.
On the recent occasion of the anniversary
of the accession of the sultan to ihr throne
Count Abraham Cauiondo showed his loyalty
by offering his majesty a bouquet of ncirly
four yards in height and two and ono-half in
circumference. The structure represented a
lemon surmounted by a crescent inscribed
with the name of the sultan on ono bide in
French and the other in Turkish. The sultan
was greatly tou- hed by this sign of devotion,
and caused the eight men who had carried the
monster bouquet to the palace to be ade
quately rewarded. Tbe construction of the
htuquet occupied eight persons for a whole
week. Foreign Letter.
