Having entered upon s policy of commercial expansion, the govern Pome of the windows overlooking the route of. the Dewey prade in New Torlrt have been sold for I300 each. The peo ple who own the windows will brobably content themselves by sitting in their basements and looking at Dewey's "latest pictures" while the procession is passing.

A present joelfcoto.-of the mutabil ity of politics is found In the speech of Senator Blackburn, In which he "des cribes William Goebel. one of the dem ocratic candidates Jor Governor of Kentucky, as "the noblest man he knew." When Goebel killed Colonel John Sanford In liH, as the result of a quarrel over a newspaper article for ment cannot afford to Ignore the In creasing demand for some sort of pref. erentlal legislation that will build up American shipping. mat this is necessary if we are to carry American commerce in Amerl can-liuilt ships is demonstrated by convincing array of figures and facts In an article In the September Forum from the pen of Captain William W. I-ates, formerly United States com mi&uoner of navigation. Captain Bates goes back to the creation of an Amer ican marine under a system of protec turn by the congress of 1789. By dls criminative revenue acts the propor tion of our carriage In foreign trade rose from less than 25 to SO per cent. Coupled with this protection was the registry provision that American ves sels must be American built. Our ships were built at home and were owned by our citizens. In 1815 our government entered upon a policy of "maritime reciprocity. which withdrew the protection to transportation in the foreign trade, and which Ooebel was responsible, Senator Blackburn stood by the dead man's bier I U ha" contlnue1 Poucf until the and said to his wllow, "I will make It j Amerf-an n Is rarely seen In for mr life work to wn hi. h 1 e," Lnaer tnis policy- our bringing bis murderer Into merited ' pr"por,lonate carrvlnS our foreign public execration." When Goebel was nominated for Governor the window of his victim became Insane and was sent to an asylum. commerce has decreased from 90 per cent, as It had stood for 30 years, to less than 9 per cent, the present ra tio. Fortunately this policy has never been extended to the shipping In our domestic trade, and for this reason we still have some merchant ships flying Te close relationship that exslsts be tween the crops and national prosperity naturally Invests the crop reports of the American flag. the government with exceptional Inter-I What shall be done to restore Amer- est to all class of producers and loan shipping?

Our regu lation of the domestic trade costs us nothlnq. The propor course, therefore, according to Captain Kates. Is for our government to return to ihe policy of tho fath'is, that Is, W such practical measures for the regulation of oilr earring trade as w r once enforced and were successful In creating a commerce distinctively American, THE PRIZE CONTEST. Boys Now Leading the Olrls. but the Latter Will Rally on the Finish. The contest for the subscription pris es has evolved Itself Into a battle-royal, with the hoys now leading the (Iris by a really alarming majority. A lit tle miss who visited the Astorlan uftVe yesterday, however, stated that the boys, must not count their chickens too seriously as yet, for she, as well as several companions, had a surprise In tore that was certain to svnd their stock upwards, and perhaps carry a great deal of confusion In Its train. If the little girl Is correct In her calcula tion. It may prove a telling blow to the hustling lads who are now feeling ex ceptionally proud over their achieve ments. Here ar the rules and regu lations: CONDITIONS, Prise l.-Th boy or girt under II years of age sen ling In the Isrgest number of monthly or yearly subscrib ers to the Dally Astorlan during the months of September and October will be entitled to choice of the best grsds of $40" Rambler bicycles.

New Yorkers are divided as to whether they should publicly express miner or keep aa quiet as possible con rrrnlng the fact that President Mc Ktnley and about all the administra tion dignitaries have declined to at tend the New York Dewey celebration. Some of the declinations were not ac companied by any reasons. Secretary of the Navy Long, Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock and Attorney-General Griggs are still to be heard from. There will be .-onie question as to what political argument Is to be deriv ed from the case of Raffaele Paura. the Italian banker of New York, who In disappearing because of a shortage of 140,000 in the bank deposits funds left a note behind In which he said ht had no hope of squaring matters next year lecauae the presidential elections would make business bad and because, too, Ihe contest might result In the choice of a democrat.

Although his expenses would be paid he is In doubt about the trip, fear ing, perhaps, that It might make a good American of him. the crop reports of any other year. As a matter of fact populism had Its birth In the crop failures of the West. Pop ular discontent over the workings of natural law has always been the pro lific breeder of revolutionary and im practical political ideas. The decline of populism, Indeed, may be attributed to the general prosperity that has come from successive bountiful crops and from the restoration of public confi dence through the maintenance of a sound and stable currency. When the oincial acreage of wheat for the year shall have been revised and the actual thrashing resul's of rate of yield are secured It Is believed that the official estimate of the crop of the year will reach f.30,000,'00 bushels. It Is remem bered, however, that the government September report of the last year plac ed th crop fS1) 000,000 bushels, but pie, says Captain Bates, can we sue ceed today. On no other principle did any nation: ever succeed In building up and maintaining Its shipping power. The writer does not believe that "subsidies" or "bounties" will retrieve the American merchant marine. He calculates the cost of building and maintaining a marine on the principle of governmental expenditure, as pro posed in the bill Introduced In the Flfty rlfih congress, and, shows that the sum to be paid out of the treasury under a system of compensation based on tonnage and mileage sailed would mean ultimate national bankruptcy. Our shipping Interest for want of the essential conditions ofi life and growth. Captain Bates does not think these can be supplied by subsidies or bounties.

Dlederlch, for merly consul at Magdeburg, presuma bly because of Irregular methods. A Bemen newspaper says Mr. Lange re. signed because of his disapproval of the "Imperialistic policy of the McKln ley administration." There seems to be but little doubt of growing nervousness In administration circles as to what Senator Beverldge will say when he speaks out about what he found In his recent visit of close Inspection to the Philippines. Just now the senator Is keeping quiet and somehow there Is something por tcntlous about his silence. Burke Cochran, of New York, who has not been In the newspapers for a longer time than he cares to think about, has succeeded In getting there by advising President McKlnley In an open letter to offer to arbitrate between Oom Paul Kruger and the UrltlHh.
