To what extent the government touch
es the private life of a citizen of the
United States is shown in a very strik
ing way by Professor Eugene Wani
baugh of the Harvard Law school in an
article in The Atlautio Monthly. From
the time that a man rises, all through
his business and social activity of the
day until he goes to bed again, the gov
ernment touches him at every step, pro
viding for him, regulating him, telling
him what he may and what he may not
do, until there seems hardly the neces
sity to discuss increasing the scope of
government, so rapidly is it becoming
wider and wider under the natural tend
ency of the times.
Mncb surprise has been expressed at
the keen sense for business shown in
the letters of George Eliot quoted in
Airs. Olipbant's book about tbe Black
woods. But it turns oat that the letters
were really dictated by George Henry
Lewes, who was an able business man
and looked after her affairs so closely
that, in spite of the comparatively
small bulk of ber work, she left a large
fortune behind ber, all of it earned by
her pen during a career of 21 years.
The Aristocracy of Wealth.
"Mamma, tbe De Smiths are saying

presented in the Senate fexlay during the
delivery by Thurston, of Nebraska, of a
speech on the Cuban subject Not since the
Inauguration of President McKlnley bav
so many people been on the Senate side of
th Capitol as were there today. The gal
lerle were packed with people, many of
whom bad arrived at the Capitol at early at
9:30, in order lo obtain seat.
Mr. Thurston's dying request to her
husband was tbat he should lose no time,
on account of ber death, to do hi utmost to
save and free Cuba and it people. In ac
cordance witb tbe request, therelore, Thurs
ton sacrificed bis personal feeling and de
liver! hi speech a speech that wa hi
tribute to the memory of hi wife.
Without knowing the motive which arii
mated Tnunton and inspired him to his
best eflorts, bis auditor instinctively
realized and sympathized with hit emotion.
The speech was very generally regarded as a
miilorly one, and even those who could not
agree with hit conclusions conceded the
power of his oration. At he neared the end
of the tpeech, hit voice, which had been
clear and ringing, almost broke. He wa
almost overcome with emotion, but rallied
with an effort, and closed in a manner that
thrilled his auditors.
Staid and digniHed Senators turned sway
and wept, and In the galleries, tears welled
to hundred of eye. It waa a remarkable
tcene, and tbe stillness until the last word
bad been pronounced was aa of death Itself.

At 11:35 the second ship, an exact coun
terpart of the first one, except In name,
followed. Tbey were christened respect
ively the Kearsarge and Kentucky, proud
and historic names that have just repre
sentativet In the splendid fighting ma
chines put afloat today. A saw severed
the pieces that held the Kearsarge in place,
and the splendid bull started on her jour
ney to the water. A she started, Mr.
Winslow broke a bottle of chainpaigne over
her bow, and exclaimed clearly and dis
tinctly: "I christen thee Kearsarge."
As the vessel slid tmoothly into the river,
cbeer after cheer went up from the crowd,
and shrill whistles ol steamers in the harbor
welcomed the new naval champion to ita
Tbe cruiser Brooklyn and tbe monitor
Puritan, lying in the stream were the re
presentatives of the navy present.
Tbe christening party then proceeded to
the bow of the Kentucky. This ceremony
was an exact counterpart ol the former,
except that Miss Chrlslfne Bradley broke a
cut-(?lass hottleof water from asprlngon the
old Lincoln farm, she said:
"I christen thee Kentucky.'1
Tben, as tbe vessel started down tbe ways,
several bottles of old liourbon whisky were
burled against her tides by Kentiicklstit
who were opposed to tht water christening.

CiiiCAtio, March 21). A Washington
special to the News say: 1
"There Is only one chance In 100 that
war will be averted." Huch was the re
mark this afternoon of one of the moat
firoininent members of the cabinet, who
ia boen conspicuous a a "xaee mem
ber." Private Secretary Porter said this
afternoon that the president had deter
mined to aottle the issue this week, and
a message is looked for tomorrow.
"Tue President," said Mr. Porter, "la
tired of the criticism ol congress. He
will aak congress to do one ol two tliimr
either take the nueatlon and settle It
in its own way, or leave the executive
free and uulramuieled. The President
feels he cannot be blamed and criticised.
"Congress blames hliu for not acting,
and indulges in war talk when be is do
ing his beat to avoid war. The talk of
congress Interfere with negotiations
looking to peace."
There ia scarcely a doubt that Con
greas. In Its present temper, will declare
war. It is expected that It will see the
President unload upon conurena the en
tire situation, and, without uiaklmt a re
commendation, leave the legislative
branch ol the government to work out
the piobera in its own way.
