It Baje: "In selecting /.Senator Ransom of North Carolina, for Minister to Mexico ProBide'nt Cleveland was entirely con- BiHtent with his record. Ho has in this, as in bis former term, preferred Southern Democrats for diplomatic appointments of the first class. The Ambassador to England is Thomas F. Bayard, of Delaware; the Ambassador to France, Mr. Eustia, of Louisiana; •ihe Minister to Ruceia, ex-Congress man Brockenrldge. of Arkansas; the Minister "to Peru, ex Congressman McKoBzle, of Kentucky; the Minister to Spain, Mr. Tyler, of Alabama; the Minister to Turkey, Mr. Terrell, of Texas; the Minister to Greece; Mr. Alexander, of North Carolina; the Minister to Guatemala and Honduras, Mr. Younff, of Georgia; the Minister to Hayti, Mr. Smytbe, of Virginia; the Minister to Persia, Mr. McDonald, of Virginia; the Minister to Portugal, Mr, Caruth, of Kentucky and the Minister to Hawaii, Mr... Willis, Of Kentucky. Durinp Mr. Cleveland's first term the American Minister to France was from Maryland. Minister to Brazil from North Carolina, Mln- ister to Mexleo from Louisiana. Mln. istor to Peru from Kentucky. Minister to Spain from Virginia, and Mlninter to Venezusla from Alabama The President evidently has a higher opinion of the diplomacy of. Southern Democrats than of those In the North. THE popular idott inai most of the members of the United States Senate are millionaires is declared by a W'ishington correspondent to be erroneous. Of the eighty-eight men now forming that body, eighteen alone, it is said, are very rich. The richest man in the Senate is McMillen, of Michigan. When elected to the Senate'he was president Of no less than tbirty corporations. His wealth is well up in the millions. Don Cam oron Is a mtlllotairo-. So is John Sherman. Nobody knows how much Mr. Sherman is worth. Proctor is a very rich roan. Jones of Nevada is believed to possess a few millions. Hale is one of the richest Senators. He married Zach Chandler's daughter whhthe understanding that each of their children would receive $25,000 from their grandfather. Perkins from California, stands high up among the millionaires. Quay la said tojiare 8 snug sum tucked away, nobody knows bow much. Squire, Dodge, Stewart, W"ashburnand Walcott are all rich meu. On the Democratic side there are Camden, Brlce, Gorman, McPher- ton, Mitchell of Wisconsin! Murphy and Smith. Gorman is believed to have about $600,000 laid away. His family is largo and very extravagant. Brlce—nobody knows whether Brlce Is worth $100,000 or $1,000,000. He lives at the rate of $160300 a year tn Washington, and io a speculator. Joe. Blackburn, Gordon, Berry and Call are the leaders of tbo fndlgents. . f STATISTICS recently published show that contrary to the prevalent opinions there are more mortgaged homes in the New England States than In any other section of the country. At the head of the States in the ownership of unlncumbered homes stands Indiana, with 74.26 per cent of the whole. Iowa follows with 73.24 per cent., next comes Wisconsin with 70.47. and Illinois next with 7018 per cent THE Forty-third Congress camei to a close at noon yesterday and. utte people are heartilv glad of it.

Important explorations, which are all the time going on in Colorado, Arizona end \'ew Mexico, in connection with the remarkable .structures known as "cliff dwellings," have not yet resulted in any discoveries concerning the ^reason why they wore built and inhabited. These cliff dwellings, says the New York Herald, are. found in very large mirnbers in the rock bluffs that, wall in the principal canyons of the territory where Ihe -Colorado, Mancos and other rivers make their way toward.the sea. The most important of these situations is the Mesa Verde, a plateau extending 1 through southwestern Colorado and New Mexico, and rising to a height of from one thousand to two thousand feet from its base, which is, again, seven thousand to eight thousand feet above the sea level. It was very well described four or five years ng-o by Dr. W. It. liircisall in a scientific publication. The area investigated for cliff dwell ings is about three-hundred:square' miles. This-mesa, or tableland, is covered with scrub oak and cedars, and broken by perpendicular canyons, so that it looks as though the ground had been .split into innumerable fissures. In certain spots the overhanging rock, which seems to run in layers, has made galleries, varying between a few feet in extent' and as much as a thousand feet in length and fifty in width. On these narrow ledges the cliff dwellers, like swallows, fastened their stone houses, and the question is often-asked: "Why did they build so high?" The only answer that science vouchsafes is the simple one that "they built where they found caverns in which to build." That this answer is insufficient is shown by the fact that the .base of these canyons has, from time, to, time, afforded cave accommodations'for different races, while more than aithou- sund square miles, not far from this. very locality, but on the lower lands, show signs of occupancy at some time by hundreds of cities and towns, pro- historic and forgotten. The answer given is, therefore, not sufficient to satisfy the mind. And certainly it must have taken some powerful motive to induce the prehistoric races to climb so high for a dwelling place, when this could have been obtained at the expense of so much less trouble and danger, by planting 1 them simply where tens and hundreds of thousands did at some tune, two or three thousand feet lower down. Evidently the reason for their not doing so was that they lived and builded at a period far anterior to that of cos autres, and when the existing conditions must have been widely different. At present these localities are unfit for the use of man or beast on account of the complete absence of fresh water—except whatever rain and melted snow may be caught in hollows worn in the rocks. Winding around the bluff or sheer wall by narrow ledges, the explorer at length comes upon a great cliff, towering upward, beneath which,,.on the ledges below, rise the ruins of a clifl town. Then it is seen that the dwellings present an appearance of infinite variety. There are little corners of the rock which evidently formed the houses of the lower classes; others there are, complete structures of stone taken from the cliffs above and around, and fashioned into substantial buildings, made to adapt t-hemsclves to the shape'of the caves and to the limitations of space. In some instances the ruins of .these building's indicate towers, or communal houses, of large extent. They are all built of blocks of sandstone broken or cut into regular forms, laid in an adobe cement, and the crevices between filled in with stone chips. Where curves in the gallery existed the walls -were also curved, or angled, to utilize the space. Anyone who will take the trouble to read and collate the existing writings concerning the traditions of- the extreme western and Pacific coast Indians, will find that the tribes all agree in the possession of traditions concerning a great deluge which, at some long past period, covered all their territory, and from which but few escaped. Such traditions extend from Oregon to Mexico. Of course, in such .a case, those only would es^pe who reached the highest lands. The idea that those •who are responsible for the • construction of the cliff dwellings were -the ones who escaped from the great American flood is certainly not without probable reason on its side, though writers on the subject generally give at a wide berth, being Tin-willing to accept the conclusion which must necessarily follow the adoption of so startling .an event as an actual fact of prehistoric days, '*"'' The latest wonder among tae textiles is a fabric woven from the 'fibers of wood which has been put through a special chemical process. -This important method of treating wood fiber, •which renders it equal to wool or cotton for all practical purposes, is of German origin, and is known as the "Mes- terlich process of chemically-treating •wood pulp." It-was introduced during the year just closed. ^ ^ COST QFt;THE DEMOCRACY. Kuormoo* ln- Loi«e» Sostalned T ^ . competency. "Democracy.is too expensive for me," said a sensible ''worker. lilt who can tell how expensive? What has been the cost of a democratic victory so far? The average "price of railroad stocks has declined SIS per share since Jannary, JS03, or about SI, 000.000,000. and bond's probably half as much more. The shrinkage' in that kind of property. not far from a sixth of all the property of 'the country', has been more than a quarter of its former value, but 'has other property shrunk in liko proportion? Wages have fallen 21.77 per cent:, and the aggregate sum paid yearly in 1S92 was about §10,000,000.000. JJut two years of such loss have meant to the wage-earners no less than S-i.SM.OOO.OOO. During years of prosperity the deposits in savings banks were increasing at the rate of ?00,000.000 yearly for 4,500,000 depositors, and at'the same rate the savings of all wage-earners would not be far from $.(30,000,000 yearly, but for the last two years there have been at the savings banks losses instead of gains, except for interest on previous deposits. Tliesie items only give some glimpse of the enormous losses sustained. The entire addition to the wealth of the country two years ago was moiv than Sl,2"«0,000,000-yearly. but there is every reason to bcl'ieve that since that time there has been no addition, but a large actual decrease in other as we'll as railroad property. Certain it is that 52,500,000,000 does not measure nearly the whole of the loss in actual value of property during two years, while the sum distributed in wages has decreased much more- A rough estimate of the entire decrease in production of wealth can be drawn from the record of payments through all clearing houses, which bear about the same proportion each year to the production'.' '-In 'the twelve months preceding President Cleveland's inauguration these -.payments were SG2,«9,- 000,000; in twelve months after they were £30,5.80,000,000, and in the twelve months which will end March 1 the aggregate will be about §40,000,000,000. .if these sums were about five times the actual production, the aggregate for" the two years nearly ended would be §19,310,000,000, while for two years olike 1802 it would be $25,000,000,000, a .difference of' 85,084,000,000, or. 53,84.2,000,000 yearly. But the national debt at its maximum, in August, 180, r >, was only £2,750,000,000. Democratic rebellion was costly, and had created that debt in four years, but each year of ' democratic government costs the people more. Part of the decrease, men will say, is "only in the prices of products," but that is exactly where the shoe pinches for the farmers, who have to sell 50-cent wheat, 5-cent cotton, and wool 39 per cent, lower than two years ago. It brings home to thtm not merely- their fair share of the general loss, but considerably more, that they can get no better returns for their labor and their land, and about half of the people in -the country, it must be remembered, depend directly upon the prosperity of the farmers. For the rest 'of the people, whose wages have fallen nearly, 22 per cent., the loss is tangible enough if not relatively so great. : It will "have to be set down as an economic fact of some consequence that a democratic party in power costs the country a little more than the entire national debt at its biggest, or in every year not far from 840 for every man, woman and- child. According to the census, the entire cost of all forms of 'government, national, state, county and city, was about §1,040.000,000, or less than S15 per capita. Out of $55 for every person. £he present loss and expense of government, we have to charge g-10 to democratic foolishness, and the rest is the cost of all services rendered.— N. Y. Tribune.

Lord D., a proverbial hater of America and America'hs, was dining- in Paris. Next to him at a table sat a noted Newport belle. The conversation had drifted to a discussion of American topics, and Lord D. expressed his usual hatred of all things on this side of the water. Finally he made the assertion that he saw no good manners a.nywhere in America. This angered the Newport girl, but she replied with apparent unconcern: "What poor letters of introduction you must have had, my lord!" There was no more unpleasant tali about Americans that evening. —Our friends, tne Chinese, take great pains to use the English language with accuracy, but sometimes they are more fluent than correct.

Death Tuiiirrit tho X<;«- Onlnou Native* Th»* IIulletH Could 1'enetrnto It, Red paint saved the white settlers in German New Guinea during- a sharp contest that occurred recently iu that part of the Rismarck Archipelago. Arno Senft't, who for three years has been in German New Guinea, tells the story of tlie war. Tie arrived here Thursday, and is spending- a few days in San Francisco. Mr. Senrt't hits held all kinds of offices and several at the same time in that primitive land, and diversified the civil occupations by leading- soldiers ag-ainst ihe hostile cannibals. He says the war bc^r»n in a contest between rival tribes, but was diverted to resistance of the n.-itivcs ag-ainst the government. . -The war was very bitter and very bloody for a time," said Mr. Scnfft, "but it was a- succession of- guerrilla fig-hts. without an open battle. Tho natives foug-ht with -runs, spears and sling-s. Tliuy bad but few guns, but an abundance of the other weapons. I took part in eis:ht scrimiuug-es, in which one hundred and. four natives and one white man were killed. "I wns in command of the'native police, who were constantly in the contest. T. doubt if the insurrection would have been quelled but for the German war vessel that happened to visit tho island and the red paint that was sold bv a wily cadre. ""This fellow lived in the interior and made a red dye from products of tho islands. This he offered to the native warriors as a sure immunity from injury from bullets. He told them that no bullet could pierce the paint if smeared over their bodies and permitted to dry. He sold his paint in large quantifies to the .superstitious people, taking their shell currency in payment. "Earnest belief iu the -protection ot the red paint against the -weapons of the whites spread all over the island, and every warrior against us showed a vcrmillion breast to our weapons. Bitter experience was necessary to teach them their error. Bullet after bullet penetrated the paint and their, swart hides before they would believe that they had been duped. After one hundred and four of them had been pierced by our bullets they acknowledged that red paint is not a bullet-proof cuirass. "German New Guinea," continued Mr. Senfft, "is a very wild island and but little of it had "been explored by the whites. The natives are all cannibals—that is, they cat the bodies of men of rival tribes, though I. have never known them to eat the bodies of whito "—San Francisco Examiner.
