The rood Judgment diplvrd by Mayor Taylor In the make-up of hla committees Is an augur)" of the lutwj of his admin istration. Like that of all other legislative bodies. the most Important committee In the council Is, of course, the committee on ways and means: and It the mayor pro poses to Introduce the reforms promised in his Inaugural address, resHVttm? the finances of the city, it is plain that this committee not only must he one of the most Industrious In the entire council connection, but It should be composed of men of acknowledged business ability, of mature experience, and possessing the courage requisite to the exercise of a wise and discriminating conservatism In the raisins of the city's Income and the expenditure of the public money. Without exception the men chosen fur this committee are eminent for these qualifications, and the selection of Mr. Welch as Its chairman Is an especially fitting and deserved recognition of his experience and capacity for the particular work the mayor Is known to have in view for It to do. Mr. Parker will make a good chairman of the streets and ways committee, and a better man could hardly have been named for tbe fire and "rater committee than Mr. McGregor. The othr commit tees also are exceptionally well-manned, both as to their heads and the entire personnel of their membership. Taken altogether Mayor Taylor may be sTIi to have made a most auspicious start for hla administration. He has been unusu ally fortunate In the number of good men he had to choose from In filling his com mittees, and be has shown his sagacity as a business man and his determination to study and serve only the best Interests of the city In the fair and unselfish method adopted in the organisation of his council and the preparation made for the arduous and responsible duties he and they have undertaken to do. 8ucress and a good record for the new mayor and common council of the city of Astoria. BALANCE OF POWER IN TH3 SEN ATE The Republicans now hav forty two senators, forty-four being a majority. If the two sliver senators from Nevada, who were formerly Republicans, i.nd on other questions still believe In Republi can principles and refuse to ally them selves with the Populist., vote In accord with tbelr post rerrd, on any question, there will be forty-four vot?s Just enough. But if they Insist upon attach ing a free stiver amendment to any meas ure, they know that It will defeat that measure, and they will do it. If at all. for that purpose. They thereby make It no longer a Republican measure, no long er one which the Republicans can support as a party. They happen to hold, in the present division of the senate, a veto power to match that of the president. If he can veto any measure which they may want, they also can veto any me,is pre which he may want, and they public ly avow their Intention to do it. There are also two Populists who are believed to be ready to vote with the Re publicans on the tariff and some other questions, but who are, above all for free silver. It Is with them as with the sen ators from the silver states; if they see fit to fasten a silver amendment on any measure, they know that It must defeat that measure, and do it with that Inten tion. But it is not Impossible that they or the free-silver senators may deem It their duty to give the government an ad equate revenue, and the nation's indus tries adequate protection. If so, they will simply refuse to use the silver issue as a veto of needful legislation. This division of the senate, It will be seen, leaves no Inducement for a bargain of any kind, such as the Democratic pa pers are so freely hinting at nowadays. The Republicans will not have power to pass any measure which does not suit the two sliver senators, or the two Popu lists, or some of the Democrats. This state of things will not be altered by the admission of a Republican from Dela ware, because forty-five votes will then be necessary for a majority, nor by the admission of two Republican senators from Utah, because forty-six will then be required for a majority, and with the three added, the Republicans will have only forty-five votes. These are facts so widely and thoroughly known that no dust-raising by the Democrats can ob scure them. It Is setting up a pre tence which will deceive nobody, and that Is never a shrewd thing to do. The Re publicans have seen lit, as it was their duty, to take whatever proportion uf con trol over the legislation in the senate they could secure without barter with anybody. It stilted the Poriulist snd the ! silver men to place them In thut position, for reasons quite obvious, and also lix tlnctly antagonistic to Republican parti- ' san Interests. Nevertheless, It was the 1 business of the Republicans, In ii.lelily to the constituents who had elected them, to take as much control as possible over , the action of the senate. On some quc. Hons they may b aMe to do tome good on the silwr question they have pre cisily the name l.iok ot iowcr mat tn"V ; had last year, and the people know 11. j One of the nioM prwt In questions he-' fore oongixss and the country Is that or adequate coast detente. '. Prior to the ending In cf the president's Vtntjucl.in message Senator Squli had introduce I a bill providing for en expenditure of .. (KV.tW for this purpose. So large a de gree of attention was attracted to this subject by the meaKC and tho subse quent developments In const-ess that the till was modified so as to make the en tire sum immediately available. In the discretion of the president. In this shape It Is Mr. PqulrCa Intention to press the hill to early consideration by the com mittee on roast defense. The. volume cf public sentiment In fax or ot a liberal policy In this vital matter is made evi dent by the numerous petitions wht -h are being sent to congress. When Miss Clara P-arton, apcakitur in Ponton, referred to the work which "I have carried on." and at once corrected herself, changing the pronoun to the plu ral, she had no occasion to apologUc. It Is Mis Burton herself who has been the heart and soul, and the brains as well, of the Red Cross movement. What It would have been without her It Is im possible to conceive. She la adhering stoutly to her principles and refuses to ask a cent for the work In Armenia. But It Is Impossible- to bellve that :he American people will refuse to respond to the appeal made In behalf of the sufferers, knowing as they do that the money will be used to the best possible advantage by the' Red Cross and its de voted president. Policeman Slater, of New York city, seems to bo an officer of unusual int-lli-gence. Having arrested a flying fugitive who had attempted murder, he takes his prisoner back Into the presence of his victim ot the assault that he might be Identified. The assassin thereupon pulls a pistol and fires three more shots Int the man whom he had failed to kill on the first attack. It was a little rough on the man who was shot, but there Is no doubt now as to the identity of the party who did it. Slater should be pro mote!. There are South African million tiros. It seems, who are richer than Parney Barnato; but probably they don't have half as much fun. . XATIONAL HOROSCOPE. Forecast of the Events to Happen During the Next Year. The horo cope of a nation or country Is cast, under the rules formulated by Ptolemy the final lutliority on astrology for the moment of time of the con junction of the sun and moon next pre ceding the vernal equinox, and for the capital of lh country under consul 'ra tion. This horoscoe is therefor- cast for Washington. D. C. 1. March H. 5:?o a. m.. when the 'Neornenl.i." or new moon, occurs In the xodiacal sign Pisces. M deg. min. The festival of this an nual new moon was celebrated by the pagans and Israelites, both with great ceremony. Allusion Is made to It In Samuel xx:5-& The briefest summary of the nativity of the year 1KS Is all that will be attempted In the present Instance. None but ihoe versed in astrology would jnderstand the reference to the positions and apvts of the planet!, which go to its fulfilment. - It ms.y be premised that the United States will engage !n no wars other than that which will pronahly occur in con gress, tut which will ther? be bitter and obstinate, as will also be the case In the political conveniens. The general climatic comltton Indicates much moisture and but little extreme heat or cold Financial affairs promise to improve, in so far that products and the general condition of tne, people will lie m:ich more satisfactory than in W6. The government will he strong and well sustained and Its finances become more stable. In particular, there will lie ex tensive and frjltful spe-rulatlon in all directions: snorts ar.d artiusemenL-t, pleas ures of all kinds will flourish But there Is a dark sld! to this olcture. Crime, ami that of the most terrible and inexplicable character, will abound, and especially by and against women. There will be epidemics of burglary and defal cation, of which recent events are simply premonitory symptoms. Then there will be vast and costly conflagrations, rail road accidents and losses on the sea to an extent much greiter than common. Then there will be much slcknesa of a feverish sort, and not Improbably sum mer epidemics. There will le many deaths among the highest In the !and. Whatever International disputes may afflict or annoy the government will be In this hemisphere. Whatever domestic troubles cccur will lie In conectlon with labor, and strikes will be prjval-nt. There will be serious fl'jods and earth quakes about midsummer and at Hie cloie cf ihe year, and In the autumn terrible disasters, tires, aeldents of all sorts and a general Increase of crime. The outlook Is unfavorable except that all Its promised evils will not greatly re tard the average progress. Except In the details for misfortune herein enumer ated the condition of the American peo ple will be better at the cloe of lMrfl than it Is at the beginning .' ZRAKL. New York, December 31, lW.
