AT WASHINGTON. Th« Prenldcut on Guard to Prevent Seal Stealing III ;Onr Sea. The HuNton Now You Sec It and Now You Don't See It Resignation But it ban no St in £ to it From m» End of the tine. Social Elections— HOUMK uud Farm Show*, Etc. i fc p. L- DEAR JOUK.VAL:—The latest political note of general interest is the announcement that the President may be compelled to give up his contemplated western and southern trip next month, on account of the ripening- Berhisg sea negotiations requiring his presence here. Tae sealing season is close at hand, and it is very desirable to reach some understanding that •will prevent collisions and complications among- the greedy seal hunters who are prowling over our sea waiting for a chance to steal whole carg-oes of our seals. The Huston resignation, still "hangs" in the hands of the President. There . is no "String" to it, and "Nelse" is clearly anxious to be free and get home. Cupt. Lemcke was expected here on Wednesday, but I could not learn that he had arrived last evening Kumors of changes in the Cabinet by the retirement of Secretaries Proctor and Noble have created some excitement in subordinate official circles,but they are doubtless false, or at least very premature. It is said that Secretary-Proctor wants to get back to his marble business, suffering for want of his personal attention, while toSecre- tary Noble is assigned a desire to escape from disagreements witb some of this chief subordinates. There are grains of truth in this gossip, but the Cabinet breakups they are said to be working must be received with many more grains of salt. Local elections in the Spring are losing the most of their political significance. The people in seeking- local reform are paying much less attention to party lines, and the party that abuses its political dominance in the management of local affairs is apt, ^in an intelligent and wide-awake com- s -unity, to get a sot-back from tax payers who are tired of being plundered in the name of Republicanism or Democracy, for the benefit of the unapproach- is also a beauty. The give us many leaders who have control of the party machinery. This is one of the good signs of the times—a leveling up that will ultimately reach and benefit the strictest National partisanism. Good Jocal government is more immediately important to the tax-payers who sup nort it than legislature upon National lines of policy, and when the people . have secured such government by —^.eir sovereignty, regardless of partisan organization, they have removed a fruitful source of partisan degeneracy and corruption. They have "purified politics" at least to that extent. . • Almost the entire force of the Census office has been, concentrated upon the work of ascertaining the actual .condition of the farm^mortgages of the ountry. This work is separate from -he census recorded indebtedness as found in the Recorder's books of the land. It was partially commenced by the enumerators, but now every owner of a farm is required to explain its -mortgage status in answer to printed questions sent to him from the Census Office/ The answers, to these questions are rolling in by thousands and tens of thousands. They are taken in hand _by the clerical force, edited, dissected aod tabulated. They will show the actual condition of mortgaged farms, the original amount of the mortgage, the rate ef interest, what it £ •was.given.for, the amount paid upon ._ it and the cause of its still remaining unpaid, besides many other points of , interest. Of course no names will be used.. The figures will appear in the - -census report on that subject by counties. A great many of the replies to these questions are very amusing-. For instance: one farmer says his mortgage was given to raise money to buy Democratic whisky when Buchanan was a candidate against the "Abortionist," John C. Freemom, in 1856. Many have been working heretofore on the recorded indebtedness, but will lay that work aside in a day or .two and take up home and farm indebtedness and I expect to find some rich reading for my Journal friends in the replies to the questions above named. TWO snows. Washington people and sojourners enjoyed richness and variety last •week, in the presence and performance of the "divine" Sara Bernhardt and the dog show. Sara took the more refined portion of the amusement world by storm, She completely disarms criticism and inspires enthusiastic praise. She is held to be incomparably superior to any other actress who has ever trodden the boards of any theater. She holds her audiences spell-bound while speaking a language (French) few of them understand, and with librettos unopened. Her acting is understood and all-sufficient. She is called befo-e the curtain at the end of every act and the people never get their fill of merely seeing- her. Speculators grabbed the seats at the Alabaugh's for the season and piled on prices, but they "bit off more than they could chaw." The weather was against them and they were g-lad to come down and sell thei tickets at a more reasonable amount The house was well-filled every nigh however, in spite of .these drawbacks The reportoire was La Tosca, Fedora and Cleopatra. The most competent critics affirm that Fedora is Bernhardt's greatest character but award her unapproachable premminence in La Tosca and Cleopatra. The latter, in addition to her able impersonation spectacle of brilliant local reporters kindly glimpses into Sara's private employment. She had rooms at the Arlington and for the most part retained her privacy in them. She was accompanied by ^ companion, a maid, a valet a little black eyed girl, recently adopted by her in New York city, and three dogs, big and little. She slept much and ate heartily and was as jolly as a cricket in her domestic circle. She is pronounced very handsome both on and off the stage, and an improvement in the contours of her figure is much commented upon. By invitation she visited the atelier of a local sculptor to give him a sitting, but instead she took hold of the clay and moulded and modified the outline of her own face. Sara is no slouch of a ' 'sculp" herself. The clay louche by her deft fingers will not again b manipulated, and the sitting- is prom ised later. The dog show held its own agains all other attractions. About five hun dred dogs occupied the benches They were mostly dogs of high degree and long pedigree. A royal St Bernard was the king of the crowd, but many little two-pounder whiffets were much admired. After the St. Bernard the fox terriers were the most popular, except among sportsmen. "Bab" ought to have visited this show and made it the subject of one of her lively letters. There were some rare breeds of dogs exhibited and, strange to say, the old favorite Newfoundland had only one representative, but he was a fine one. These noble dogs are becoming very scarce. The ugliest bull dog, of the female persuasion, on earth was a pet of the ladies. She was named the "Graven Image" and looked the name to a nicety. ' A fine blood-hound was exhibited by his lady owner, but he would not pass muster as a blood-hound among- the mastiffs of an Uncle Tom Cabin's show. He was a [surly, stupid-looking long-eared brute, but crowded to see him. Notwithstanding the enormous superfluity of useless, graceless dogs, whose existence is in general a disgrace to our civilization a good bench show is a novelty to be enjoyed whether one "likes dogs" or not.

E2TIt is a significant fact that every democratic legislature which has acted upon the re-apportionment question has adopted the gerrymandering: process to such an extent as to deprive the republicans of their reasonable share of congressmen.—St Louis Globe-Dem. TThe democratic papers which have been pooh-poohing 1 Brazilian reciprocity as of no importance to business, get the lie direct from New York dry- j-oods men, who say that large orders are already coming- in, based on the provisions of the new treaty.—Inter Ocean. IE3?~Although the democrats fought he subsidy shipping bill, they will °b e claiming it as their own within a few months.

E9~If it be true, as the democrats assert, that reciprocity is only another name for free trade, then why do they oppose it so strenuously? This is a little question of logic that is likely to give them a great deal of trouble before they get through with it.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. C®"A democrat announced in congress the other day that the next congress would pass everything that this congress has failed to pass. The declaration is probably true, as far as the democratic house in the next congress is concerned. It will pass everything- that is bad, revolutionary and destructive.— Chicago Journal. E2r"The g-ood old democratic free trade times left relics for posterity. One of them lately found was a store bill, which contained charg-es of 33 cents a yard for calico cloths; apron checks (gingham), 37^ cents; black cassimere, 58.50 per yard; brown sugar, five pounds for a dollar; lamp oil° 50 cents a quart bottle; tobacco, SI per plug. Wages were 75 cents a day, or only three-fourths enough to buy a plug- of tobacco weighing- a pound. Those who want these times back here again should support the "tariff reformers."—Chicag-o Journal. STRANGE INDIAN RELICS. Owen fluctuated, considerable last week. On WednesdaV cheering improvement was reported. On Thursday evening she was not so well. On Friday she was thought to be much better, but passed a bad night and several hours of Saturday. On Saturday, evening at about 4:30 o'clock, she was sleeping and had been resting quietly for two hours. Her final recovery is expected and predicted, but the process will be slow and probably accompanied by many partial relapses and "bad times. A great many persons call to inquire about her condition, daily and oftener, and are always courteously treated by the clerks and other hotel employes from whom the desired information is obtained. Mrs. Owen was very popular in the hotel and everybody there seems to have a deep, sympathetic interest her case. Capt. T. H. McKee is at his post again after a two weeks' absence on business, at home. The Indiana people here miss him very much when he is away, as he is an encyclopedia of knowledge about Washington official life. Another week, I think, will find the spring 1 in full tide of rapid development here. j. x. B. Washington, D. C.

Nacooche county, in Georgia, was certainly the favored resort of a very advanced tribe of Indians, as is evinced by the many curious and well-carved relics found there. Capt. Kicholls, a well-known Georgian, has been very enthusiastic in exploring- the graves and mounds, and his discoveries have been many and valuable. In each grave were found bones mixed with arrow-heads, beads, battle-axes, pipes and other indestructible articles of sport, domestic use and war. But the most interesting relics taken from these graves were conch-shells, evident ly 'brought from the sea-shore, and a tomahawk beaten from pure copper in its natural state, though the nearest point on the continent where such copper is found is Lake Superior. Among the relics found in this valley was a bullet made of lead, although no like mineral has been discovered within many miles. On Duke's creek was found B small "death's head" formed of a hard stone, with one eye made of an opal, beautifully worked, and the little trinket shows considerable artistic skill. This relic, together with others of a similar character, must have been imported by some one from Mexico. Capt. Nicholls has explained the use of numerous relics. Hound and saucer- shaped stones of various sizes were used to play a game similar to quoits. Instead of pitching the stones they rolled them at pegs. Tbe wedge-shaped stones were employed to dress hides, while the small ones were used to work sinews with. Their tomahawks were of variou shapes, and their axes, instead of hav ing the handle pass throug-h them, were inclosed in a split stick, securely fastened with thongs. There was a separate make of tomahawk, used by the chiefs and worn at the .'belt for display, that was sharpened at both sides and aholepartially drilled in the center. This was a valuable discovery, as it showed how the Indians worked this hard stone with only the rudest implements. There are several very fine specimens of pipes. One excavated on Duke's creek is a very valuable relic, and the United States government had a cast made of it, as Capt. Nicholls would not part with his treasure. It is carved out of rock, and the bowl,is made to represent the mouth of a whip- poor-will, the beak of an eagle projecting over it The ears of a fox and other figures are also chiseled on it. It is as fine a carving as one would wish to see. In White's "Historical Collections of Georgia" is mentioned the unearthing-, in 1S32, by a party of gold miners, of a buried village of log cabins on Duke's creek, near Mount Yonah. These cabins were about thirty in number, made of hewn logs, and in one was found a willow basket, and in others earthen vessels. These houses were ten feet or more beneath the surface of the ground, and the oaks growing upon them, and other evidences, showed that several centuries had elapsed since they had been erected. The theory of the history of this buried town is very plausible. The story is that DeSoto and his soldiers, in. their march to the Mississippi, after reaching the headwaters of the Savannah river, struck across into this valley. This region was then occupied by two very fierce and warlike tribes of Indians, in conflict with each other, but when they beard of the white strangers marching into the country, they united their armies to resist the invasion. They succeeded in checking DeSoto, who was finally driven upon the Yonah, where he fortified himself, and it was his soldiers who built these cabins as a protection against the winter. Capt Nicholls says he has himself seen, near the cabins on this side of the mountain, a barricade formed of loose stones, and this is said to have been the work of the adventurous Spaniard and his men. To strengthen this theory, the opal eyed death-head was found near here, and it is too fine a trinket to have been the handiwork of Indians. Another curiosity of the valley is a great moimd, the summit of which the Indians leveled off perfectly flat and smooth for a space of nearly two acres. Some authorities believe the leveling to have been the work of a race antedating the Indians, but it is certain that these latter people used the space as a ball ground.—Thomas Long, in Golden Days. THE WAIL SUBSIDY. A Credit to the Republicans In the Late paid'at the rate of S3 for every three miles sailed. To ocean liners of the first, second and third classes the act provides for mileage at the rate of .?4, •S3 and $1 per mile sailed, respectively.' But as there are very few liners of these classes in the present merchant marine, little mileage will be paid on these for the present. The friends of the bill hope and believe that the mileage promised such ships will impart the stimulus necessary for their construction. The argument that the act provides for a bounty to a favored few is full met when it is stated that there is no a single ship that is to be paid single dollar except as it carries th mails of the United States. It is tru that the mileage is to be paid withou regard to the amount of mail matte carried, but that does not alter the fac that a public service is exacted before public money is paid. Last year the net profits of the government on its for eign mails, was over"..$1,700,000. The country can well afford to pay liberally for the carrying of the mails, if'thereby is helped the development of a merchant marine that will be an honor to the country and a defense .in time oi need. It is this policy that has helpec to give to England her pre-eminence on the seas. 'But the American free traders, while they swallow whole the Cobdenism of the British, statesmen, refuse to see any benefit in England's steamship policy, which the republican party intends to put to the test—Iowa State Eegister. —Usually We Case.—Mrs. Dinwiddie— "Do you remember Miss Trotter, who married a titled European?"

It is greatly to the credit of the republican majority that they succeeded in passing this important measure. Without paying- out a single dollar except for. services actually rendered the government, the United States will have an opportunity to put to the test the system that has worked such wonders in advancing- English steamship interests. The act has been promiscuously denounced by the democrats, but that was to be expected. It is to be regretted that the act cannot immediately demonstrate its usefulness. It applies only to ships constructed by American ship builders, of American materials and owned and manned by Americans. But such is the poverty of he ^ present' American - merchant marine that its ships are nearly all of one of the four classes to which the nail subsidy can be paid, and that is the lowest class, embracing vessels of between 15,000 and 25,000 tons burden, having a speed of from 12 to 15 knots per hour. . On these ships carrying- United States mails mileage is to be HIRES' IMPROVED ROOT BEER> ;»arao. xoBOiumessTRAiMire EANUWA: THIS PACKA.OE MAKES T1VE C.AUOKS.
