VSCLE SAM MUST LOOK OUT.
The resolutions recently offered in
the bouse by Messrs. Herbert of Ala
bama and Belmont of New York,
calling on the president to define the
position of tbe government with re
lation to the Congo conference, were
the result of a feeling among some of
the leading members of the house
that the part this nation is taking in
that conference is likely to cause
great embarrassment in the future.
Keports from Europe show that Kas
son, by the introduction of a proposi
tion that the plan of government sug
gested include not only the Congo
basin, but all the valleys of tributa
ries of the Congo and the surround
ing region, and that the nations tak
ing part in the conference pledge
themselves not to make war upon
each other, has made him the most
prominent figure in the conference.
There arc certain congressmen
who havo taken alarm at this.
They say it is a departure
from the policy which has obtained
bore from the foundation of the gov
ernment, not to enter into any
entangling alliance with foreign gov
ernments. They say, further, that it
looks as if the foreign powers -were
holding this out as a bait to induce
the government to commit itself and
recognize the college of nations, so
that Europe can demand to bo rec
ognized in the settlement of all ques
tions growing out of the Panama
canal and the Nicaragua treaty. It
is believed that France and England
will demand that all matters growing
out of these questions shall be set
tled by arbitration, and, having made
a departure, this government can do
nothing Tjut allow their claim or re
pudiate the action of the state de
partment in the instance of the Congo
conference. The latter course -would
be particularly dangerous in the
present defenceless condition of
America, without fortifications and
without a navy, aud the former would
mean a decision against us.
TaxiEIKo about the recent wreck of
the Abbie Cowjer on Shoal water
bay bar, the Gray's Harbor News
says: "11 it were a fashionable wa
tering place it would soon bo attend
ed to, but a place to save the lives of
a few unfortunate sailors who may
be cast adrift, can run itself. It was
reported about three mouths ago
that S15,000 had been appropriated
for a light at tho entrance to this
harbor, but there are no signs of con
struction as yet. What has become
of the project? With tho present
number of arrivals, and tho increase
that is bound to come wo aro entitled
to something besides a fourth order
light.-and shall expect to see a more
liberal appropriation for that pur
pose. Tho time has come for better
signals of danger along this coast.
There ought to be not only a good
light at tho ontrauce of these two
harbors, but one of them at least
should be supplied with a first class
siren for foggy -weather. Nearly all
the wrecks occur in thick weather."
Those industrious statesmen who
are anxious to secure an extension of
tho territory and influence of the
"United States can find a very useful
field for their offorts upon our ex
treme southwestern border. When
the purchase of the Arizona region
was made from tho Mexican govern
ment, a great error was committed on
the part of tho United States. This
was in running the boundary from
longitude 111 deg. west in a north
westerly direction to tho Colorado
river in about latitude 32 deg. 15 min.,
thus entirely cutting off the new ter
ritory from the sea. This should be
remedied as soon as possible by a
further purchase that would continue
the extreme southern line of Arizona
due west to tho Pacific ocean. Such
a purchase would cost but a trifle and
could'be taken on account as Mexico
still owes us a goodly sum. By this
means Arizona -would acquire a sea
coast which would be of immense
value to the whole southwest and we
would have complete possession of
the mouth of the Colorado river.
Kealt every nowspaper in the state
recognizes the justice of The Asto
riax's claim that just representation
be given Clatsop county. It appears
to s that by proper action on the
part of a few publio spirited citizens
tho claim could be got beforo tho leg
islature in. such shape as to insure its

The lord high chancellor of Great
Britain is cx-officio the speaker of the
house of lords. Ho is also a member
of the cabinet, and usually a peer,
though there is nothing to prevent
the sovereign from naming a com
moner for the position. Ho sits on
the woolsack, and "wears a wig and
gown during every session. Members
as they arise do not address him, how
ever, but the house, and he has not
tho right to decide who has the floor,
nor the right to demand order. He
is a mere figure-head, for -which he
receives $30,000 as judge and $20,000
as speaker annually tho same salary
as the president of the United States.
He goes out of office -with the resigna
tion of the ministry, but receives
thereafter a pension of $25,000 a year
for life. The present occupant of the
woolsack is Lord Selborne.
Springer of Illinois thus expresses
his views touching the election of a
senator in the state to succeed IiOgan:
"There does not appear to bo tho
least prospect that the legislature will
bo able to elect a senator. The two
parties are equally divided, the senate
having one Bepublican majority and
tho house one Democratic majority.
The defection or corruption of any
one member is not to be thought of,
as it would almost be worth a man's
life to betray his party under such
circumstances. Neither side will be
able to take advantago of the sick
ness or temporary absence of any
one member on tho other side, for
tho moment such an effort is made tho
opposition would break a quorum.
The Troy, 2s. Y., Press has the civil
service reform business down pretty
fin& It Bays: "If the office is one of
responsibility it should be given to a
Democrat, so that the party in power
nay fairly be held to account for any
misdeeds of tho official; and if it is
an office of small duties, such as
footing up columns of figures or the
like, then surely a Democrat can be
found to do it as well as any other."
That certainly ought to settle it
TnE governor of Iowa is said to be
afraid to call a session of the legisla
ture to fix up some railroad matters
lest it take it into its head to repeal
the prohibition law. Thus does a
short lapse of time work marvelous
changes in public opinion.
Yaxdebbilt has returned all of
Gen. Grant's property to him and in
