The position of I)I'esident of tim Unit- ed States involves many peculiar "trials and alflictions. Somebody has written to Mr. ClevelaIld to suggest the name of Gladys Gwendolen for his youngest daughter. And now Hetty Green is su.hlenly devout. ~he says, ~ays IIetty: "I an] going to get together all the religious persoils l can and go to Nlne (lllJet place where we cau pray timt my liti- gations with Mr. Barling may be ended during the next twenty years." Probably the Spanish authorities are correct in their assertion that the Cuban Insurgents are doing some robust lying. The fact, however, that the rebellion sticks, and that where there is any fighting at a!l the rebels do the attack- ing, proves that Spain is h'n-d pressed. There is a "let up" in tile campaign to "mend or end" the Lords. ttowever, a change In tile constitution of the sec- ond cha,nber will have to be made in the near future, but a second chamber of some sort will remain. Tile Radical crusade for a single-branch parllamdnt cannot succeed. JHi I m The republics of Central America have got together on one point, and that Is to make common cause a galnst an " inore such ultimatums as the one re- cently forced on Nicaragua by the Brit- ish navy. The Central Americans may have thelr little revolutions, but do not propose to be held up habitually for the benefit of Europe. Chicago's wqy of introducing elec- tricity ms the motive power on elevated railroads is to adopt it, make contracts, put them through and let it whiz! New York's way, as illustrated by the Gould- Sage management, is to "watch ex- periments" and keep on running the noisy, dirty and antiquated locomo- fives. A second elevated line in the Western metropolis has closed a con- tract for an electrical plant, the first one being in successful operation. The kindly and liberal United States Government, wldeh pays ambassadors $17.500 a year for doing nothing, Is In need of an assistant in its bureau of animal industry. The lucky appointee must be able to translate technical French and German and must have a scientific knowledge of chemistry, phy- siology, bacteriology, microscopy and histology. If fortunate enough to ac- quire this desirable office he will re- ceive the munificent salary of $1,200 a year, and the worst of it is that prob- ably a qualified man can be found to take the place for tile beggarly pay. By tile death of Prof. tIuxley Eng- land has lost one of her greatest in- quirers. Ituxley's name will stand with those of Tyndall. Darwin and Spencer at the h~td of English science of our generation, tits views on the relations of science ~o religion and his attacks on revealed religion caused endless controversy, which has been oftentimes renewed durtng tile publi- cation of his collected works. But hhs true fame xwas based on his works ms a scientist pure and simi)le, and as such he will be honored in cage annals of sci- entific research and literature. Photography in colors has not been potmlarized as yet, but fl~ere are sev- eral i)roeesses which are believed to point to a final success in this highly desirable branch of the art. A Dublln doctor has just exhibited In that clty a number of photogral)hie glass pl,'rtes on which several bolors show with dis- tinctness.

The verdict of "murder in tile second degree" rendered against Joseph Spath at New York was simply ahsurd. The third person. If there is any law of homicide at all in the State he was guilty of murder in the first degree. The Recorder In his charge, occupying an hour and a half, made this point so clear that even a stupid Juryman must have understood that the prisoner was either guilty of murder in the first de- gree or not gullty.~f any crime what- ever. The verdict Is doubtless what Is called a "comproalise" one, one by which Jurymen convinced of a raurder- er's guilt shirk the responslbillty ot bringing in a verdict which will con- demn a man to death, by stultifying themselves. Chi~lgo keeps it up. And now Chi- ca~o has arranged to send a delegation of 1,000 citizens to vlstt tim great cot- ton exlx)Sltion at Athtnta.
