Mr Vick is a colored man" and is opposed ; by Senaor Pritchard, because of his op position to Senator Priitchard's organ ization In that state. Mr Vick said he opposed the senator's organization because At had for its end the elimina tion of the colored citizen as a politi cal factor in the state. The president has said that, in no instance, would he regard mere color as a bar to office-, holding and the senator has made the additional "charge that Vick is unwel come to the citizens of Wilson, a charge that can be made in the case of every colored office-holder in tfie southern states. f The president still has the matter under advisement and the outcome is looked for with much Interest. . While comparatively little has ap peared in the press in regard to the matter, the defeat in the house of the London dock bill, on Tuesday, was a matter of grave importance. It is the custom of London dock owners to col lect a tariff of 42 cents .per ton on every ton of freight unloaded from vessels coming from ports in the United States. With a view to pre venting this discriminiation parliament passed a law prohibiting . the charge, but the dock owners got around , that by having the charge stipulated in the bill of lading, which, as it was nego tiated on American 'jsoil, was , beyond the jurisdiction of parliament The bill just defeated had for its object, the prohibition of the contract on this, side of the water. Originally the milling, lumber and packing interests support ed the measure but suddenly the. two latter withdrew their support and so accomplished its defeat. There are many- ugly rumors afloat which conr nect the new shipping syndicate . and its Washington lobby with the with drawals and consequent loss of the bill. It is pointed out that an ar rangement; could easily ; have been made with the large industrial named for a refund of the charge and possh bly for a 'share in the profits made by assessing the tariff on the smaller shippers. r The announcement that John Bar rett, now minister to Slam, will suc ceed Mr Buck as : minister to Japan has occasioned ' considerable criticism and it has become evident that Mr Barrett's sphere of usefulness will.be circumscribed by the lack of respect In which he is held by the Japanese government, says our Washington cor respondent, It Is not true, as has been stated, that the Japanese minis ter has filed a protest with Secretary Hay, nor is it likely that he will do so, but It Is evident that the minister is most sensitive over the appointment. According to the custom of diplomacy, the United States should send as her representative to Japan a man of equal mental calibre with the Japanese rep- resentative in Washington and that Mr Barrett is not believed to be. He has, in the past, exhibited a tendency to sensationalism which has not re commended -him to the favor of the Japanese. On the other hand, the president is said to have seriously of fended Senator Hanna by the appointment-Minister Buck was appointed at the request of the Ohio senator and his successor, it is claimed, 1 should have been nominated -; by Mr Hanna. WbenT Senator Hanna . learned that Minister Buck was about to resign he asked Mr Roosevelt to consider Lloyd C. Griscom but the president replied that Mr Buck's successor was already chosen. Mr Griscom Is now minister to Persia and his promotion to the more important diplomatic post would do no violation to the president's pod icy of promotions based on merit. SOME HOSPITAL PETS. Odd Creature That, Are a Source of Great, Comfort to tUe Little ' Pntienta. Of army, navy and other semipub lic pets much that is entertaining has been written. Hospital pets are .not fco well known, but it is easy to imag ine the pleasure they give to a ward full of little patients, and no one could doubt the statement of a nurse, in the Hospital, that they brighten many a weary hour of convalescence and ma terially' help toward a cure. ,- The first pet of which. the nurse tells is Jumbo," a , wise old tortoise, which lived,, moved and had his happy being in a children's .ward in' a New York hospital. ; His curious wanderings about the ward, his clumsy gait, his air of . antiquity and wisdom caused many a child to forget pain; and to have Jumbo' on the bed was the highest re ward 'the staff nurse could promise to a little patient for good behavior during the surgeon's visit. . v ".Nurse Judy", was a fox-terrier which, for 15 years, was a close and lovingly compassionate friend to ev .ery little inmate of a children's -ward in a London hospital. None knew bet ter than Nurse Judy that a dog that lives in a hospital must not bark, for there were little sick ones whose sleep must not' be disturbed. ' Barking was the only; canine privilege denied her, and shewas always cheerful un der this ordeal of silence, and more than most of her kind she learned to express her 'joy by wagging her stumpy tail. s ' "Gypsy," another terrier, has taken Nurse Judy's place", and is already so wise a probationer that some of the nurses say they "could almost, trust her to take a temperature!" Gypsy plays ball with the convalescents, and always hasa Santa Clans pocket of her own at Christmas. The only liberty she will not tolerate from the children is the attempt to "commandeer" any of her own special property from the top drawer, where it is kept, v A monkey named Giovanni was once a ward pet in a little hospital in Leg horn, Italy. ; Originally he had - be longed to an Italian, whose dying wish was that his monkey, might stay with him to the last.. The good Eisters who acted as nurses did not quite know what to do with the awkward legacy bequeathed; then by the friendless sick man, but Giovanni's big eyes said as plainly as possible: "Don't send me out to face a friendless world! Isn't it enough for a monkey to lose his loving master without losing the home he has found here?" ; . His mute simian eloquence prevailed. Giovanni was adopted, and became known as the "Count." The sisters "grew very fond of him. He amused the children, and at length became as tnuch a fixture as one of the pillars of the hospital gate, r Two chameleons lived and died in a children's ward in a Imdon hospital. They did not live long chameleons in captivity, never do but they .'were a great source of interest and. wonder while they lived, and their changing color under the children's very eyes was a constant mystery and delight. A wise little boy patient once informed the ward that it was "only conjuring like that chap did at our school treat." But it was never quite clear to the others whether the conjuring was done by . the chameleons or was a trck of the nurse who owned them. . UNCLE HI 'S OPINION.

By this I do not mean, to say that wealth is . a disgrace, r But men whose cole ambition's- bent on, wlrinln in the race For round, "almighty dollars," , those who measure men, 'tis plain, , By the bigness of their purses, not the size ' of heart and brain, . - a, 1 Seem so cold, and email, and narrow, that I pity them and! vow I'd rather, than be like them, be as poor as I am now. -, : I have a heart ahhorrent to the miser's . fevered clutch, . ' And the man who's simply wealthy never .interests me much. - s A man, though worth a million, may be talented and smart, His soul may not be sordid, and he still can have a heart; For such a manly feller I have only words of praise May happiness be with him to the end of all his days! But wealth an" nothin,' with ifsa condition, sad to state, .-' That calls for more of pity than of envy or r. of hate; So, with men of heart an' Intellect, I like to keep in touch, But the man who's simply w.-althy never interests me much.

"The country " dance, the cross-roads festivity of the Irish peasantry, which had practically become a thing of the past in Ireland when I was there five years ago," said the Rev. Father Fielding, of Chicago, "is again in full swing in the old country, much to the delight of the lovers of an Irish Ire land. A puritanical spirit totally alien to Irish .character," he continued, "arose among the Irish clergy a dec ade ago, and every enjoyment and pas time of the young country folk was frowned upon. The-great work done, by the Gaelic league in Ireland has changed conditions. " The league now pays Irish pipers and fiddlers to play at' the ' crossroads dances, when, in view of all the old folks, the 'boys and girls of Erin' enjoy themselves just as they did ; in the time Lever wrote about.'V-Philadelphia Kecord. mum mmmMmmmmmmimmm ARCHITECTS E.

An amateur collector of woods for rnamental work recemtly stated in Science and Industrj- that he had bog oak from Ireland that is almost as black as ebony. Brown is well represented in his col lection by w;alnut from this country, and cocpbola and snakewood from the tropics, lihe last named variety has the remarkable property, of show ing its mottled spots on all four sides, instead of two, a.s is usually the case. It is very dense and hard to cut. When it is cut it gives out an odor similar to. that of scorching wood. In reds he has mahogany, cedar, California redwood, African vermitloni and tulip wood, the last mentioned variety being . etriped. Bluish tints can be obtained from amaranth and heart of lilac. Very few people know that near the heart of this common flowerimg shrub are the mort beauti ful streaks of a purplish hue, varie-ga-ted with white. .It is difncult to obtain in large pieces, as the trunk rots and dies- almost as soon as it be gins to attain a large diameter. Different shades of yellow are af forded by lancewood, orang.ewood, sandalwood and Spanish satinwood. Sumach is greenish, and has a pretty grain. Very light tints, can be ob tained by using quarter-sawed map! and sycamore. White holly is- even more effective in getting contrasts of colors - , , ' Hsrdr Vesetarlaiii.
