Thjese is a lift! acramble going on among th failed States senators for Use place- oa the coaiwiUe oa appro priation made tacaut by tbe death of Srnator Murab. The committee :s oae with a'faost autocratic powers and is watched tery jealously by all oa the outside. A Drraorr exchange says tbere Is a jrowin; opnroa that soma cash as well as aa expert accountant ia needed to straighten out thai city's financial iuJ3le. That was tho situation in CJrinl ILapids at o :e time, and the sus picion after a ar2a grew to be a cer uia!y. The contest for senator from Kansas to succeed tbe late Senator 11 umb iffrai lo bare c arrowed dawn to two men. Oac c these is Mayor J. K. Hud va. editor cf the Topefca Daily Capi tal," thj other is cx-Represantative B. W. Perkins, at prvseat practicing law ia Washington. Tho indications are that Mayor Hudson will be elected. Sour dispatches seem to indicate that the people of Texas, or a part of them aloa tho border, aro siring actire sympathy to the revolutionist Ganu and his followers. If thi. be true, the national gorernment should loss no litre 10 putting a stop to it. The Mexi can gsrernmeat is rery friendly and is a natural ally of oars. Tho people o! Texas and along the border on both tides should be made to antic ntand that neutrality laws must bo tb yed. Dxraorr's latest sensational rocket Has come down like a stick. Wm. W. Uannaawent to Tort lltiroa on bus: ness but forgot to telephone bis intcn tion to all the newspapers. The papers suspected murder, abduction, elope ment and a variety of other mishaps and published their suspicions as real ities. Mr. Planum protests that he is alive and kicking and demands a jour raiistic resuscitation. These Detroit tellows are easily rattled. The statement that this goremmsnt Intended to settle ttie Mafia trouble by payment of an indemnity is denied at Nasbiasioo. Tho report camo from Home by way of London. The denial reminds ns of the old ad rice, "ZUxtf be here anything you hear, and only t.alf you se." The men at the head of rur government are w"so enough to inaase such affairs in the best ways j o$.bIe, and the re si of tha country rosy abide the outcome with tran quility.

An Ksgiish.uau hring at Teheran give rtascu for thi state of ai: as folio wsi "The shah is ntarty pnyed oat. lie drinks a bottle of braJy a day. He consumes haliijh and cpmni freely. No weight can be attached to any rumors of re form proceeding frcm his majesty or bis present ministers. The shsh's but ler, the son of his cock, the grandson of a slave bought for X10 in the opeu market, is now sc'le and irresponsible grand vicr. In Tersia there is no law and not a single court of justice. No enterprise is pouiblo. No one dares own that be ia rich. The rich bury their wealth. They are seized, tortured, imprisoned. In many cases they die without revealing their treasure. All that is respectable ia Persia stands aloof, goes into exile or hides away to escape the intolerable degradation and misery of the times." Tne policy of ignoring tho existence cf foreign powers because of our gso graphical situation was well enough for the days of Washington, but when one can circio the globe iu serenty.twodays and when a hostile army of 100,003 men can be landed on our shores within a week it is time for a change. The gov ernment is fast awakening to the fact that in this day of rapid transit isola tion from foreign powers is impractic able and impojiibie. Measures for offensive warfare are being rapidly evolved m the naval department and coast defenses will La the next to re ceive attention. Although the UniUd States stands abreast with the greatest powers of the earth she has been obliged to submit to repeated insults from the merest weaklings because they possessed one or two powerful iron dads and tho government had no marine worth mentioning. The Chilian affair has opened the eyes of the nation to this dangerous weakness, and for that reason it is something to be grate ful for. KEEP ore TUC TRACKS). The number cf people who have been killed while walking railroad tracks would seem to necessitate the passage of a law making track walking a misdemeanor, and subjecting all who indulge in it to a heavy fine. There is such a law in most of the European countries, and it undoubtedly has much to do with the fact that tneir percentage of death-by-the-rail Is lower than our own. Perhaps such a law would not keep people from walking tho tracks. It's hard to toll what kind of influence a man would be susceptible to who will deliberately undertake to do a thing for which he knows the pen alty may be death. If be doesn't care to dodge the death penalty, what would the chaaco of arrest and fine mean to him? Many of the people who are killed in this way are mutes. It does not seem that it would require much argument to convince a mute that he should keep away from a track. Chil dren should be impresred from their earliest years with the dangers of it, and men and women should not le. their love of excitement run away with them, but should be willing to abide by tho experience of others, and avoid tho tracks even if by so doing they have to go "ths longest way 'round.'" -I.

About Si30 0 dock tie guests began to arrive in carriaces and from that tune until 9.0. there was a perpetual stream of peopU pouring into the ho tel, i he gcniiemru all sptea: 01m tne cenveutiuual Urets utl aua tuu taaies were clad m line gowns made espe cially lor the occasion. After tlijpos- ing of their wraps the throng mingled and the sterner sex suhcenbed their tamer to numbers on the pre grams of the Utiles. Wuizbur & Ttronson's orchestra played an orerturo. directly following which the grand match occurred. Charles Fox acted as direc or and CharleaMcQuewanled. With inoasured tread tho gay concourse marched about tho hail tormms pretty hgurea and ex ecuting serucntiiies wh.ca lainy aai zcled the beholder. Then came,, the waltz. It was expected thai the stately fathers and mothers would drop out of line, but net so. With a spright lmess which' was amazing they trinocd away to the delightful stratus of the orchestra. Jn no instance did vouth outshine ace. When all were on tho floor the number reached "CO, but so commodious was the spaco allotted that the customary, disagreeable crowu in: was conspicuous oy its aDsoncc. In tbe ordinary, coffee only was served, and at frequent intervals the participators in the festivities regaled ) themselves. In tho rotunda tables wcro spread and the formal luuch was served there. While tho dancers did not exceed -00, Mr. Pantlind found it necessary to spread ZOO covers. Many of tne dresses worn by the ladies were gorgeous to the extreme. The St. Cecelia bait was a succett in every particular, and it was nearly three o'clock before tbe last tired CoudIp left the hotel. The ball was given for the purpose of raising money, which will bo expended towards constructing a temple of music. The building will be erected on the lot adjoining the Ladies' Literary club buildiug oa Sheldon street.
