Senator Hoar's arraignment of Mr.
Cleveland for bis unconstitutional as-
sumption of authority in dealing with
r ' . "

' .. , ;

In aaconlance with facts. The memory
of his burning words, as well as those
used by Representative Boutelle, of
Maine, in speech in the bouse, w ill
linger long with Mr. Cleveland, who has

Deing sick oi tne wnoie uusuiess. ne
will be sicker than that before congress
gets through with it, as the democrats
have not shown any great desire to either
shield or defend him. The following ex
tract from Mr. Hoar's speech is both
true and pertinent : "If Mr. Willis went
out instructed to reinstate the old gov
ernment, absolutely or upon conditions,
could little Hawaii help herself, if the
American people had been behind the
art? No, Mr. President, this adminis
tration has )een hurried into this trans
action, not by any sense of justice to
Hawaii, not by any desire to vindicate
the national honor, but for the sake of
making what has turned out to be
weak, impotent attack on its prede
cessor. The great name and fame of
Benjamin Harrison are source of envy
and discontent in some bosoms."
Secretary Herbert has got into hot
water by adopting the royal methods of
Mr. Cleveland. Not long ago there was
a vacancy at the naval academy, which
should have properly been filled from
the fifth congressional district of S. C.
Representative Strait, who represents
that district in the house, wrote to See
retllry Herbert concerning the vacancy
bu rei;t.ive(1 no re,,!v, when he came
to t(,e extra session he called at the
navy department and was coolly in-

, own stat", Aiat'Htnu. ,nr. .-trim ims in
troduced a resolution in the hoiive cull-
ing upon Secretary Herbert for hisj
authority fjr making the appointment.
One would suppose from the frequency
of the slaps in the face which the admin
istration gives the democratic senators
that it bad no need of their support.
The latest slap was the nomination of
Wayne MacYeagh, of Pennsylvania, to
be ambassador to Italy. The demo
cratic senators smile and try to pretend
that they like it, but it is plain to all
that they do not. There was no diffi
culty about the confirmation of Mr. Mac
Yeagh's nomination by the senate. He
is thoroughly competent to creditably
fill the position and if Mr. Cleveland
preferred to give one of the highest
honors at his disposal to a reuegrade re
publican rather than to a democrat, re
publican senators bad no objection, so
tho nomination was promptly confirmed.
The adoption of the following amend
ment to the urgency deficiency bill in
the house by a vote of 123 to 40 was a
practical reprimand of Mr. Cleveland
and Hoke Smith, for their wholesale sus
pension of pensioners: "That any pen
sion heretofore or that may hereafter be
granted to any applicant therefor under
any law of tho United States authoriz
ing the granting of any payment of pen
sions or application adjudicated npon
shall be deemed and beld by all officers
of the United States to be a vested right
in the grantee to that extent that pay
ment thereof shall not be withheld or
suspended until after due notice to the
grantee of less than thirty days, the
commissioner of pensions after hearing
all the evidence, shall decide to annul,
vacate and modify or set aside the deci
sion upon which such pension was
granted. Such notice to grantee must
contain a full and true statement of any
charges or allegations upon which such
decision granting Mich pension shall be
sought to be in any manner disturbed or
The administration men are alarmed
by the statement ofj Senator Murphy
concerning the Cleveland tariff bill.
They know that if he lives up to that
statement "I will endeavor, so far as
lies in my power, to see that no injustice
is done to the interests of my native city
and state" it means another demo
cratic vote against the Cleveland tariff
bill in the senate, where they have few
votes to spare.
The majority reoort in favor of the
Cleveland tariff bill is not calculated to
make any votes for that measure. It is
not much of a Christinas present for the
democratic congressman to take home
to their unemployed constituents; its
fine talk about future prosperity will not
buy groceries or pay house rent for those
who have already been brought to want
by the prospects of that which it so
Secretary Carlisle's long delayed an
nual report was eubinitted to congress
this week. The most noteworthy re
commendation it contains is that ask

Senator Sherman said during the silver
fight that the administration would
have to do sooner or later. Cas.

One of the most important of recent
events in buililintr and loan circles, is
the decision of Comptroller Eckels, of
the treasury department, regarding the
style of associations doing' business on
what is known as the "nutionul plan."
He holds that the use of the word "na
tional" as the part of a title or name
of an association isillcpal and cites the
following statute in support of his po
sition: "All banks, except national banks,
and all persons or corporations doing

institutions are prohibited from using
the word 'national' as a portion of
the title of such bank, firm, or corpora
tion, and any violation of this prohibi
tion committed after Septembers. 1873,
shall subject the offending party to a
fine of fifty dollars a day for each day
during which it is repeated."
The luestiou has been referred to
the attorney general of the United
States for an opinion. If sustained the
decision will affect a large percentage
of the associations which operate on
the national plan.

eight cats upon its staff and their
maintenance is regularly entered in
the company's books. Their duty is
to look after three or four hundred
thousand empty corn sacks which are

the sacks have to be attended to by
twelve women, who are kept constant

A Strang Indian Mthod of Putting 1.1 1
tl One to Hleep.
Sir George Campbell records In his
Indian Memoirs a very strange habit
of native mothers in the neitrhlKirhood
of Simla. lie seems inclined to recom
mend its adoption in England, but per
haps he is speaking in jest.
I wonder not to have scon more no
tice of the curious practice of the hill
women of putting their babies' heads
under a spout of water to send them to
sleep and keep them quiet. When the
new cartroad was first made, there
was a village at a halting-pluce where
rows of such children might be seen in
a grove close to the road.
The water of n hill spring was so ail
justed as to furnish a series of little
spouts, each about the thickness of
one's Uttle finger. Opposite each
spout was a kind of earth piilow, and
a little trough to carry away the water.
Each child was so laid that one of thj
water-spouts played on the top of its
head, and the water then ran off into
I can testify that the process was
most successful. There never were
such quiet and untroubles me babies
as those under the spouts. The people
were unanimous in nssertiu.f that the
water did the children no harm, but
on the contrary, benefited and invig
orated them. In fact, they seemed to
think that a child not subjected to
this process must grow up soft-brained
Certainly their appearance showed
no signs that this singular method of
bracing the intellectual part of their
bodies had done them any harm.
