Just now the cbtmtry. is engaged, in leisure moments, in .forecasting the action of the National : conventions in "92. It does not' require the ability of a shrewd observer to- .discover that President Harrison' -will receive the nomination if he de'skes it. . His administration has-been brilliant and without a flaw and from this time on will grow in .popular ; favor. Notwithstanding this fact it is true— and it Is not discreditable to the President — that the people of. the Nation are anxious to honor the most able statesman of the age with the presidential office. It will be the privilege of the president toconsider this situation. He can turn 'he nomination in favor of James G. aiue •withfjhonpr to himself. The untry would applaud the act, remember it, and- turn naturally to 'Indiana in future "' conventions. However, this may be, , there will be no .rivalry in the convention. The best of feeling ; exists between the Secretary- and his .-superior officer and Wither' will be ''& ' candidate against he other. It will" depend upon !the '.President himself to .decide who will lead-the party in '92. When he has so decided an enthusiastic support will indorse the decision. In deciding, however, an appreciative public will approve the generosity which suggests the withdrawal in favor of the man whom the party naturally and creditably desires to fill the highest office in the' nation, a desire that in no respect contains any disparaging reflection on those who have spent fewer years in the public service. Besides this' there is a question of personal consideration and party advantage -which must be wisely considered. Men are united in parties, like -iron at the, forges by heat. •The bitter and exciting incidents of the rebellion united the people of the nation ' in political parties, by ties 'which caused personal interests and personal ambitions to be easily laid aside. There was no lack of party •Tttl6giance among the Republicans of the North orthe Democrats of the South in -the' years that followed the war. New generations have sprung up since then, however, with; whom the war is a tradition and party an inheritance. With them as political factors, we are now dealing. A change of administration brings much of personal disappointment or, to be^candid, disaffection. Heretofore it has been the custom to attribute off year defeats to this cause and subsequent victories to recovery from it but it is clearly apparent that the time needed for recovery, if recovery is made, must be longer as we get farther from ••the excitement which forged the parties into a united whole and clearly d£fined. party lines. Thus Cleveland Itfst Indiana in '86 and New York, Indiana and the Nation in 1888. To disregard the suggestions of those facts and to lightly consider the depth of personal interests and ambitious would be unwise. Principles which are wise are not necessarily popular and a party though right may suffer defeat. Besides this as a theory there are facts. No 'man in political contact with the people has failed to hear of Republicans who will not support the. President for re-election and of Democrats who will support James G. Elaine. While the wisdom of those Republicans can safely be questioned their intention cannot be nor can the effect of this opposition be laughed away. Notwithstanding the able and admirable administration of the President this condition will necessarily be considcredby him in his action. The assurances of party leaders whose admiration for the administration and whose obligations to it make assurances easy, cannot be accepted simply because of the sanguine hopes and confidencethey display. The facts must be known and considered. Moreover the situation in the west, always solid and enthusiastic for Elaine, must be carefully investigated. Whatever the conclusion may be it can be safely stated now that the party will make a strong, vigorous and probably successful fight for the re-election of the President if he is a candidate and that figlt wiirnotbe marked by any shadow of disapproval of the policies the administration. It can also be safely stated that the people will elect James G. Elaine without the aid, almost, of party organization, and that he is the people's choice. No declaration on the subject will reach the public for many months, and the political horoscope may greatly change in the meancime. It is not amiss at this time to note the popular pulse as it beats to-day, however, and this much seems plainly apparent now, that whether it will be Elaine or Harrison in '92, will depend upon the President himself. VOOKHBES, McDonald and State Treasurer Gall have spoken for the Democrats of Indiana and their utterances indicate that there is a wide diversity of opinion as to what color the next Democratic platform miist be painted to be the most attractive. PUBLIC sentiment on the New Orleans slaughter has changed slightly since it has been learned that one of the victims was formerly an organ- grinder. CHICAGO is doing her best to make the World's Fair a world's affair but in attempting to elect five Mayors she is rather overdoing the business. Our ForelK" Policies. One admirable feature of English policies, as ex-Minister Phelps points out, is the way in which all parties stretch a point to sustain the diplomatic policy of the government. The government, whether Tory "or Liberal, has' the support of the opposition, or at least its passive support. It is just the reverse in the United States. The Opposition press here generally seems to feel called upon, as a matter of course, to fight and criticise, and to embarrass the diplomacy of the government as much as possible. Mr. Phelns says: "A nation divided against itself can never achieve a diplomatic success." — Sioux City Journal. Tlie Boom Hi at IN Among the immediate results of the Mail Subsidy bill is the announcement that the Cramp ship building concern at Philadelphia, now employing 2,500 men, has orders for new ships which require the employment of 1,500 more workmen. Other shipyards and establishments report similar prospects, and it should not be long until every large seaport city not now possessing a shipbuilding industry should have one or more in active operation.

NEW YORK, March 23. Special Correspondence. There is sunshine somewhere and music and flowers for to-day, and, as a natural sequence, there is the Easter bonnet. I think a woman with a becoming: Easter Donnet on, walking- with a man of whom, she is fond, is about as happy a creature as there is in the world; and for that reason one of the fe»v rights that I claim for womankind is the Easter bonnet. 'Give it to her, fathers and husbands, even if you do have to forego a little supper or a box of cigars for yourself. Don't laugh at her when she has it on, but take her face in year hands and greet her, as they do in Russia on Easter Day, with a loving kiss and a happy announcement that "Christ has risen!" You haven't a right—not a little bit of a one—to keep an innocent pleasure from a woman; and the woman to whom innocent pleasure is given is not the one who is apt to look for any other kind. DIFFERENT IDEAS OF A GOOD TIME. Though, by the bye, what a queer word pleasure is!" There are people who think it is pleasure to make a great deal of noise, to laugh very loud, to tire themselves almost to death, and to shout themselves hoarse in an effort to sing "We wonM; go home until morning." There are people who think it is a pleasure to pose for the multitude and to utter- insane nothings, finding satisfaction, in vanity. Queer, isn't it? There are people who think it is a ' pleasure to be in their best bibs 'and tuckers, and to sit stiffly and formally at a dinner-table, utter stilted remarks to their neighbors, and come announcing what a beautiful time they had. That's queer, too. Now, what's your idea of a pleasant time?. Mine is to be with the people I like, to hear some good music, some pleasant talk, to say "how do you do" with pleasure and • 'good-by" with regret. Not to have a crowd, not to have a noise, aot to have men behave like educated donkeys and vvomen like circus riders. Perhaps my good time is a quiet one. but it is the sort that strengthens you mentally and physically. THE EASTER GOWN ASD BONNET. You won't have a good time on Easter if the new bonnet is unbecoming and the gown doesn't fit. The week before the average woman has looked as if she were in a bad temper. That's not a pretty look, for it makes the wrinkles come, shrivels the skin about the eyes, changes the mouth into a hideous shape, with the compression of the lips that gives it an air of severity. Now, every blessed woman has had plenty of time to get her Easter gown and bonnet, but the general one has just concluded what she will do the week before, and the most obliging dress-maker in the world hasn't learned yet how, when she has five hundred frocks on hand, to make the five hundred and first in a few hours, not only becoming, but well fitting. The sweetest'milliner you ever talked to can't toss up a bonnet like an omelet; and the consequence is the disappointed women are complaining of dress-makers and milliners, and calling them.everything that is disagreeable, covering the alphabet of unpleasant words from Alpha to Omega. THE KIND OF WOMEN JIEN LIKE. A disappointed woman is always a great mistake; that is, the one who shows her disappointment. She will cry ergo, her nose will be red. She. will be cross—ergo, her digestion will get out of order.—She will sulk—ergo, the man unto whom her heart goeth out will desert her for another woman whose face is wreathed with smiles, even if it is framed in a winter bonnet. Men do like a woman in a prettily dressed, but above all things, they prefer that she should be pleasant. So that when it conies to a question of sulky women in new clothes, or pleasant ones and old clothes, they are certain to choose, the latter. Men hate su5kiness in women. They count it as their own prerogative. Personally I have come to the conclusion that what a man really likes is a thoroughly good, healthy, violent temper that wears itself out in words, and is ready to be sorry afterward. There is a type of man who likes dishes thrown at him, but he is special rather than general. There is another kind that is best governed by a violent attack of hysterics, but with this sort of man jhe game is not worth the candle. But anything—throwing plates or hysteria—is better than the sulks. THE OKCHID AMONG WOMEN. The orchid show has been and gone. It was interesting and curious at the same time. The curious part was to see how the women naturally drifted to the most expensive orchids, and these were by no means the most beautiful. - Do you know that the first bunch of orchids ever carried in New York City was borne by that most perfect of gentlewomen, Mrs. Thomas Francis Meagher, on her wedding-day '.' Sirs. Meagher was one of the three sisters of whom Thackeray spoke in his letters as being not only the prettiest, but the most charming and natural in their manners of any among the American, women he had met. Two of this trinity of beauties are dead—Mrs. Barlow and Mrs. Crawford —but Mrs. Meagher is as lovely and as charming to-day as when Thackeray saw her, and is that best type of the flower garden of American women, geotle, dignified, and considerate, the orchid among women, the gentlewoman. HOW EAST EH BItlDES WILL LOOK. The Easter weddings are going to be many in number, but all of a kind. The bride just now is after the French style, She looks as if her wildest dissipation bad .been a view of the zoological gardens, and the only books she had ever read had been those illustrated by Kate G reenaway. She is married in a gown high in the neck, and with sleeves that come, in Valois fashion, down over her hands. She carries a white ivory or kid prayer- book framed in silver, and she looks as if she were frightened to death—not because she was getting married, but because she is among so many people for the first time in her life. As a picture nothing could be more absolutely delightful, and it has the effect of causing the wicked old men about town to weep bitterly, presumably for their lost innocence. MEN WHO OUGHT TO BE FKAMEP. It has usually been the right and pleasure of fair woman to cry at weddings, but elderly men are also now craving this privilege, and they look very paternal When the blase gentleman oeglns to regret, he is worth putting in a gilt frame and in a picture gallery, to point a moral for voung men. There are several io New York who. if they had a background of scarlet and black cloth combined—the devil's own colors—and in a broad frame of gilt (I would like to spell this with a "u" in it), would come out very effectively, and would answer better by their personal appearance than a thousand sermons. A -WOMANLY EASTER WISH. But, after all, these are not the.peo- ple one wants to look at on Easter Day. The air is full of flowers, and every lily seems to ring the chime that "death is no more." Every rosebud seems to tell it was put there among all the other flowers as a prayer for somebody. Every tiny violet looks up with an air of great joy, because it was thought worthy to be among the Easter emblems. Everything in the wide world is tellicg again and again the beautiful story of the resurrection, and what is there foi you and me, my friendPLast week we buried the wicked ness and the sin, the small vices and the petty meannesses, to-day we are going to arise and go forth wearing the clean garb of hope and faith, and with a blessed determination of charity and good-will to all the world. That's what we ought to try and do, and it is half the battle if we try. You close your eyes for the minute, and the very air seems full of the tidings of great joy, and,, unconsciously, you repeat, again and' again, ' 'Christ has arisen, death is no more," and every time you say it you hear echoed back to you "Glory be to' God!" And you feel that if you were not one of the whiterobed ones to greet Him who came into the world a little Child to save it, that you are^here to-day, one of the sinners for whom He died, for whom He has arisen and proven His divinity. The rest is for you; and this Easter morning, amid the flowers and the music and the great joy, conclude that death is no more, that there is goning to be a resurrection of virtues, a sweet flower from the sin that has been buried. God bless each and every one of you who is my friend all the country over, and give you a happy Eastertide. BAB. "BABY BUNTING" DEAD.
