THE MITCHELL CAPITAL. PAGES 5 TO 8. KRIDAY, OCTOBEK 27, I V) S CURRENT COMMENT. History is bding made very rapidly in the senate these days, and there are frequent interesting episodes as well. In the course of debate Senator Mills „f Texas replied to a Democrat silver c(illi a!fue as follows: 1 do not intend to be deterred by the taunts that 1 am serving with the senator from Ohio (Sherman), that he is iny ohiff. Politics makes strange bedfellows. Where does the other gentleman stand? Under the leadership of the distinguished senator from Kansas ilVffer). [Great laughter.] It is a question of taste Very much about these tilings. If there is more affinity, more attachment for the doctrines of the senator from Kansas, 1 say to my friends, fo as vi'u like it. Ex-Senator Fair is said to have cut off his worthless son with $100, instead of the $10,000,000 or $15,000,000 he had intended to leave him. If the old man had begun cutting off the young man's supplies years ago, the latter would have had a belter show of amounting to something. Next to having no father at all, the worst handicap a youth can have is a wealthy and indulgent one. The Sioux City Tribune makes a pi'i ful whine about the Democratic advo cates of repeal in the senate being unable to accomplish anything because a little coterie of silver senators, who were elected as Republicans, are among the objectors. The Tribune is too ig norant. or too narrow to nuiku note of the fact that for every Republican obstructor there are at least four honest money Republicans ready to cooperate with the Democratic friends of the measure under discussion. We have it on the best of Democratic authority that the party in j.ower is responsible for all legislation—and the Democratic party is certainly numerically in power just now. We should judge by reading the Sioux Palls Press these days that the senatorial campaign of 181)i lias already begun in this state. David Bennett Hill is playing a. mighty shrewd political game these days. What greater prestige for him than to disentangle the silver muddle by forcing a change in the senate rules after his arch enemy, Grotfer Cleveland, with the tremendous power of patronage at his command, had utterly failed? Just watch that man Hill. jfi •it Minneapolis Journal: The Chicago Tribune exhibits a painful sensitiveness because the name "Windy City" has attached itself to Chicago. And what troubles the Tribune is that "Windy City" will slick. Not with thinking people any longer. A city which can accomplish what Chicago has done since the inception of the World's Columbian Exposition will hereafter excite the admiration of the whole civilized world and will be out of reach of the narrow jealousy of would-be rivals. Every true American is proud of Chicago. V-.vflf the precedents which are now being made in the United States senate are followed by the Republican minority hereafter where will tariff legislation be at? It's an ill wind, etc. For pure, unadulterated satire on the existing situation at Washington the following from the Sioux City Tribune takes first place: If the Republicans had remained in power for four years more, even the Democratic party could not have redeemed the credit of the country. The silver senators can't very well be blamed for objecting to the weight of the administration's intluenee being used against them to the extent which it has been. It is something of a new departure for friends of a proposed measure to give out beforehand the President's views upon it. The vital importance of straight party work is clearly i-ndioated by the following from the Sioux City Journal: The Democratic party in many localities has got itself into a nice fix by fusing with ihe populists. It is now held that it is not legally entitled to representation on the election boards. I he fact is the Democratic party has practically disappeared in many quarters in Kansas, being absorbed in the populist party. The New York Sun has been calling on. President Cleveland to withdraw the nomination of Mr. John Van Alen. "Of course," says the Sun, "the responsibility is his, but that is not the point. The country does not desire a scandal to be associated with a single American flag that Hies abroad in its name." But Mr. Van Alen's nomination has been confirmed, and the American Hag will have to brace up under the scandal. There is much virtue in the protest against the recent increase of insurance rates in this stale, which lias proven most profitable lield of operation for the corporations, but—what are we going to do about it? The threat of the Argus-Leader to turn the next legislature loose will hardly prove effective at this range. And stringent legislation any event, would only result in driving foreign companies out of the state. A few strong home companies which could be keot out of the combination and run on a conservative basis might afford a remedy, but they could only be successful with the hacking" of every eomniunit.y in the state. Senator Hill turned the tables on Senator Morgan the other day in the following clever fashion: It is true, lie said, that there are politicians in New York. He supposed there were uo politicians in Alabama— they were ali statesmen from that country. Senator Morgan had spoken of his lifelong devotion to the constitution. "I had supposed," said Senator Hill, "that for a brief period my iriend had been supporting another constitution. but I may bo mistaken." As to Senator Morgan's talk about dying at his post, Senator Hill had heard like statements by men who were going to "die in the last ditch," but, said Senator Hill, "there are many of th left." Referring to a remark by Senator Morgan complimentary to Allen G. Thurman, Sanator Hill said he supposed Senator Morgan, in making the tribute, had in view all of the record made by Thurman in the senate. He then read from the journal of the senate when on one occasion Thurman, being temporarily called to the chair and certain senators refusing to vote, counted a quorum. The galleries vigorously applauded the recital of this action on the part of Thurman, and Senator Hill said: "There is a precedent which I ask this body to imitate. There is one distinguished man whom I propose to follow rather than the lead of the distinguished senator from Alabama.'' Kditor Dunn on Journalism. In his lectureatUnion college, Schenectady, N. Y., Charles A. Dana, editor of the New York Sun, among other things said: "The number of intellectual young men who are looking at this new profession, which, for want of a better name, we call the profession of journalism, is very great. I suppose that I receive myself every day, taking one day from another, half a dozen letters from men, many of them college graduates, asking for employment and an opportunity of showing what is in them. Generally the rule that is observed by all well organized newspaper offices is that the boys who begin at the beginning are taken up step by step in accordance with their faculties and their merits. The boys who begin at the bottom come out at the top. At the same time these boys do not all start out with the best outfit, that is to say, with the best education: and I have known very distinguished authorities who doubted whether high education was of any great use to a journalist, Horace Greeley told me several times that the real newspaper man was the boy who had slept on newspapers and ate ink. Although I served him for several years, and we were very near in our personal relations, I think he always had a little grudge against me because I came up through a college, "Give the young man a lirst-elass course of general education, and, if I could have my way, every young man who is going to be a newspaper man, and who is not absolutely rebellious against it, should learn Greek and Latin, after the good old fastiion. 1 had rather take a young fellow who knows the Ajax of Sophocles and who has read Tacitus and can scan every ode of Horace—I would rather take him to report a prize light or a spelling match, for instance, than to take one who has never had those advantages. I believe in the colleges. I believe in high education. "It is indispensable in a man who means to till an important place in journalism to know politics, and in order to know politics there must be in the man some natural disposition for politics. I have often been appealed to by friends, who said: 'Can't you take this young man and give him employment?' Then I will watch that young man for a month or so and see what it is that he takes up in the morning. If he takes up the newspaper and turns to the political part of the paper, and is interested in that, why that is a good symptom of his intellectual tendencies but if, instead of that, he takes up a magazine and sits down to read a love story, why you cannot make a newspaper man out of liiin. An American who thinks another country is better than this should not go into journalism. You must be for the stars and stripes every time or the people of this country won't be for you, and you won't sell enough papers to pay your expenses. There are some books that are indispensable to the kind of education that we are contemplating, and to the profession Unit we arc considering and of all these the most indispensable, the most useful, the one whose knowledge is most effective, is the bible. There is no book from which more valuable lessons can be learned. 1 am considering it now, not a~ :i religious book, but as a manual of utility, of professional preparation and professional use for a journalist. There is perhaps no book whose style is more suggestive and more in structive, from which you learn more directly that sublime simplicity which never exaggerates: which recounts the greatest event with solemnity, of course, but without sentimentality or affectation, none which you open with such confidence and lay down with such reverence: lliere is no book like the bible. When you get into a controversy and want exactly the right answer, when you are looking for an expression, what is there that closes dispute like a verse from the bible?" TOO MUCH WATER Eight.

CLEVELAND, O., Oct. 24.- A large vessel, evidently a steamer, has gone to the bottom of Lake Erie a few miles from this port Who she is or when she went down is a mystery. Captain Joseph Stingle of the fishing tug R. T. Roy made the startling discovery. He was running out to lift his nets when he saw the spars of a sunken vessel protruding from the water. There were three single stick spars, with white painted tops, each ornamented with gilt spheres. »About 85 feet were exposed. The vessel is 22 miles from this port. Captain Single took soundings and found that l.e was lying in 13 fathoms of water. Captain Single is of the opinion that she is a large steamer. Her identity is a mystery. No vessels have yet been reported lost. The unknown must have gone down sine- Friday? for her wreck was not seen on that day by boats passing the spot. When she could have gone down is a mystery. All sorts of theories are advanced in regard to the wreck. One of the most acceptable to all is that there was a collision between two large vessels dnrin the heavy fog Saturday night. inquiry among vessel men failed lo throw any light upon the mystery. No vessels are reported overdue. Probably the Riverside. CLEVELAND, Oct. a.—J. M. Jones of the firm of J. M. Jones & Bro., vessel agents, told an Associated Press reporter that the foundered boat was undoubtedly his schoouer, the Riverside. She has been missing since the big storm of Oct. 18, and no tidings have been gleaned from her since that time. The Riverside was commanded by Captain David G. Fgrriugton of Detroit, and his wife was cook oh the boat. She carried five other persons, all of whom are undoubtedly lost. FORTY HORSES BURNED. Disastrous Fire in a JAvery Stable at Lemurs.

Schick's Whereabouts. ST. PAUL, Oct. 24.—Phil Scheig, accused of embezzling $20,000 from the Bank of Minneapolis while acting as paying teller, really got away with nearer $100,000 than $20,000, and he is not -dead, nor is he in hiding in the old country, as certain people would have it appear. Instead, he is enjoying life New Mexico under an assumed name, and he is conducting a business there. It is also intimated that he is not alone, but that another Minneapolis man, one Floyd, is with him. Musn't Hire Relatives. NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 24.—The most radical order ever issued by the officials of the Consolidated road, has been given lo the heads of the various departments.

WORLD'S FAIR GROUNDS, Oct. 24.— In one week the official life of the fair ceases. -However, the gates .will be kept open as long after that date as practicable to allow visitors to cast a last glance at the White City before it is razed to the ground.

In the evening the chiefs of departments gave a reception in honor of foreign, national and state commissioners, directors and board of lady managers. The reception was held in the Massachusetts state building, and the guests were received by Chiefs Allison, Barrett, Skiff, Robinson, Buchanan, Ives, Smith, Sunueis, Fearn, Collins, Putnam and Handy.

Spreckles' Hostility to Annexation Not Due to Personal Motives. NEW YORK, Oct. 24.—ClausSpreckles, the sugar king, who has large interests in Hawaii, has been in towli several days. Mr. Spreckles spoke freely to a reporter about sugar intarests and Hawaiian affairs. "I am opposed to stealing," he said, '•and do not believe that might makes right. The United States seized the Sandwich islands without any right tc do so, and assumed charge of the affairs there. It is not because I have sugar industries there that I say this policy was unjustifiable. It was too much like grabbing and contrary, therefore, to the spirit of fair play. If this government anticipated that England or Japan was after Hawaii, a mistake was m'htle. I am sure the English government did not and does not seek to establish control over the group." Vatican Treasures. LONDON, Oct. 24.—The correspondent of The Chronicle at Rome says that Cardinals Parlussi and Signor Pattacci have gone to Paris on a mission regarding the eventual investment 'of the papal funds and the transfer of the treasures in theYaticanin case of a war to a place of safety.
