But the United States are now bent on re-creating their mer- cantile marine and recovering their- share of the carrying trade, and Con- gress is considering the subject of bounties to American ships.\ -Fifty-five years after the inaugura- tion by Great Britain of the era of iron shipbuilding the United States is sending steel plates to Glasgow for use in forming steamship hulls, and has compelled the \motlher country\ to take second place in iron and steel production. That is a wonderful re- cord for a v country wihose manifest deetiny it was, according to both the •foreign and the domestic Free-Trader of ftBty years ago and less, to produce flood stuffs and nwr materials for British manufacturers to take and pay for in the shape of finished arti- eles. Protection locked horns with manifest destiny, and everybody knows •What happened. Proteotion lias made it \possible to \traild a ship aixrat as cheaply as it can be bniilt on the Clyde, \but it lias nott enabled the own- er of an American built ship to oper- ate his vessel as cheaply as a foreign ship is operated without reducing the I her ^nances or tihe plainness of her scale of wages amd subsistence on ' - - • .... shipboard down to the foreign level.

'All but six sears in the next Senate have been rilled. Of tiie eighty-four Senators chosen fifty are Republicans, counting Kyle of South Dakota, and Stewart, of Nevada. Twenty-seven are straight Democrats, including Du- toois, of Maho; four are Populists, wMle three who were elected as Re- publicans—Teller of Colorado; Well- ington, of Maryland, and Jones, of Nevada—arc not acting with their party. As figures s'taad the Republi- can Senators number Mfcy, the combin- o-pp-ositian thji'ty-rfour, a maji of saxteec. Tbe six seats unfilLed two in Delaware, two in Nebraska anxl one eaoh in Oregon and MOB tana. Five of this numiber should be Repub- lican, for the -decision rests with Legis- latures in wihiioh -there is a Republican majori'ty. Should all be filled in ac- cordance with 'the verdict of voters the Republican miajcrity over the en- tire opposition in the next Senate will be twenty. In tihe 'Senate of the Fifty-seventh Congress the Republicans will have •w&thiin five of a two-thirds member- flMp if Delaware, Nebraska and Ore- gon fulfill the rigihitifuil expectation of the majority as declared last Novem- ber. Delaware is a swt of Chinese puzzle to RepufoMoans elsewbere. Tihe state is suffering from a peculiar form of political paralysis and the malady oonianues year after year. It might be called (the Adkllcks ca-tialepsy, for the Republicans seem unable to move hand or loot when thalt individual waves his wand, and he has been wav- ing it for more than five years. In the past a Repaiibliean Legislature in Delaware, deprived of all power of jnotiion by Additakis allowed a Demo- orat to slip info the Senate. The Re- publican 3 of •Neforastoa should get down ;to business. That state has had trouMe enooiigli from poor politics.

To the everlasting credit 'oif Washington be it .said, tibat no city has less of that vtflgar and venomous gossip which is the bane of smaller communities. There is an atmosphere of trustful congeniality here—e.t least on the sur- face, which is all that social has to do with— that does not stop to un- earth family scandals or disinter an- cestora, but receives one at his < own valuation. Of course there are reigning \ queens,\ who obtained their pr as nrueh by rare finesse as hy seasons df experience. The hostess must have the tact to welcome at her receptions guests whom she has nev- er seen before, with no shade of dif- ference in her manner than to her chosen friends.. She is generally as- sisted by several matrons and maids, to each off whom the unknown guest must be introduced. The fine ait comes in in being aible to catch an un- faimMiar name as announced by the usher, to apply it afterwards to the right person, and to pass it along down the receiving-line without a balk. What a herculean 'task, when several hundred people, the majority strangers, crowd in of an afternoon! It is related of Mrs. Hamilton Fish, who is still quoted as the -highest niore than party principles. Railroads Oui Important Industry. It may seem like a broad statement, ' teat itt is prabaibly a saife one to make, tbat the rajilroads form the most stu- pendous and important industry with- in the Uniited States. The capitaliz- ation of the railways of the United Btet&s is eleven billions of dollars. Those railways employ more than 875,- 000 men, aad for the fiscal year end- ing June 30, 1898, they paid to their epployes as 'compensation for ser- Yices more than four hundred and te miilUons of dollars, b feave once err/barked J denied ad< **Phere Is an indescribable fascina* tion sabout the railroad business for nearly all in it. It demands a degree of close application and forgetfulness of self- interest which is not demanded or ac- corded elsewhere. In no other indus- try are minutes cKwinted so valuable. during her long end .brilliant reign in fche National Capital, she never forgot, or misapplied, a name. Both Mrs. Hayes and Mrs. Cleveland possessed maioh of that beautiful faculty, togetih- er with the rarer gift of making each individuality in a throng feel himself or herself paticuflarly noticed.
