Large cities are generally well regulate

no better off ia this one respect than

true that we are favored by our salu

en by President Cleveland and Vice-
President Hendricks, the Pioneer Press
rises with these suggestions: "Suppose,
when the President and Vice President
went to Gettysburg the other day, the
train had gone through a bridge or had
collided with another, aod both these of
ficials had been killed, who would have
taken the first and second places? The
Senate, upon adjournment a few weeks
ago, elected no president pro tern. The
term of the Forty-eighth Congress ex
pired March 4th, and with it elosed the
term of the speaker, who was elected
for that Congress and cannot by any
precedent or any twisting of words bo
permitted to hold over as speaker until
the next honse assembles. Had Presi
dent Cleveland and Vice-President
Hendricks been rolled down an embank

absolutely no provision made by Con
gress to nil their plac,es,4Were being at

tial iuability or death. It is indeed
questionable if the succession can be le
gitimately lodged in members of the
Federal Legislature such as are the pre
siding officer of the Senate and the
Speaker of the House when the suc
cession to be provided for is an execu
tive office. That provision, however,
which dates from 1792, is not likely to
be disturbed; hut there should be an
amendment to meet the passible gaps in
the Presidential succession. Tt is true
the President of the Senate or Speaker
of the Houso could euly assume the
Presidential power during the period
between the occurrence of a vacancy
ard an election by the people, which
would take place within a few months,
as provided in Sections 147-149, Re
vised Statutes; but whan these offices
are both vacant it is evident that Con
gress should provide for the devolution
of power upon some one, perhaps either
the Secretary of State or the Chief Jus
tice of the Supreme Court."

Since the present government of Can
ada was organized in 1867, its debt, ex
clusive of war or othor extraordinary
expenses; has increased at the rate of
$30,000,000 a year. On the 31at ot last
March it amounted to $257,000,000
Besides that regular, indebtedness there
has been advanced to the Canadian Pa
cific Railway Company the sum of $32,
000,000, which it is expected the Com
pany wilt repay. This total amount is
mere than one-sixth the debt of the
United States, and as the population ef
Canada ia but about 4,500,000. her debt
is more than twice as much as ours in
proportion to the population. The cred
it of Canada is at low ebb. Only last
January, when some $30,000,000 ef the
dominion bonds fell due, a new issue oi
bonds was made to meet the debt. The
new issue were 3i per cent., and the
best terms that could be secured lor
them in London we.e 91 cents, and even
then a stipulation was required that no
more bonds should be offered until the
syndicate which took this lot had dis
posed of them. The rate of interest for
tirst-class securities in England is lower
now than in January, bnt these bonds
are only quoted at 90. During the pres
ent year other loans to the amount ot
$i0,000,000 fall due, and they must be
met by new loans, as they cannot be
paid. The war now in progress will en
tail large expense, the Canadian Pacific
must be kept going, or the 432,000,000
already advanced must be regarded a
total loss. The "terward" policy ef
