"Washington dlspatchefl that tho passage of a rebolutlon by tho British House of Commons for the abolition of the House of Lords excited considerable In torost among Senators, says Vhe Indianapolis Journal. "All appeared greatly interested in the question,' says the dispatch, "»od some ex, pressed surprise thmt the atnendmen should ba?o narrlod " Tho dlspntoh adds that while none of the Senators believed that the action of the Com mons really foreshadowed the aboil tlon of the House of I<ords, they al agreed that the vote should have the effect of a warning which, if it was not heeded by *be peers, might lead to a complete revolution in the future. There Is no hint in this report o' any expression on the part of any Set' ator that the Senate Itself is on trial a the bar of public opinion, just as the House of Lords is. Yet such is un denlably the fact. There are none BO blind, says an ancient proverb, as thoie who will not sen, and while sena torlwl vision is obocured by the mists of senatorial courtesy ane self-oora ptacency it is hardly to be expected that Senators should discern tho trend of public opinion outside of Washing ton. Yet if they but knew it there is us much warnlog in the air for the Senate as there is for the House of Lords. The American people have become painfully aware that the Intellectual and moral standard of the Senate has been (jreatly towered during the last generation or two. They have for many years charitably passed over numerous undeveloped scandals in connection with the use of money or other corrup means in senatorial elections. They have noted with profound dissatlefao, tlon the increasing number of infe rior anc 1 unrepresentative men in the Senate, and time and ajraltf they have observed with indignation tho Senate's supremo disregard for public opinion. The recent tabling of tbo Peffer resolution which called for an investigation of charges which there IB too much reason to believe true is a case in point. The Senate could not have done anything more confirmatory of popular distrust than this, and yet there is not the least evidence that It realizes It has done an unwise or Improper thing. ••Our Senate needs reforming — not ending but mending. Like tho House of Lords, it has been growing away from tho people. If the House of Lords is open to the objection of being a hereditary body, the Senate is equally open to the objection of laps ing through a species of .dry rot Into a party baronage, a political House of Lords. How to elevate the moral and Intellectual standard of the Senate, to restore its pristine dignity and tomake its members realize that they are the servants instead of tho masters of the people ie ono of the most Important questions of tho time." M REKf> of Maine generally hits the nail on tho head. "There is no way," said he, "to put money In circulation except through wages paid. Issuing government bonds doesn't mako circulation. The laborers must earn it and spend it, and that will mako it flush. The statisticians say tho 20,000,000 laboring people In this country earn when they are at work from 180,000 000 to |40 000,000 a day. The Wilson tariff bill will ut per these wages cent. The cut on $40,600,000 $4,000,000 a day .to from 10 to 25 10 per cent, will be a lose of laboring men, or fl, L>00,000,000 a y ear. A 25 per cent. :ut in wages will take t3,000,000,000 out of circulation. One-third of our labor ia idle now. The Idleness Is costing us probably $10,000,000 » day. I do not -wonder that the times are hard and that money is tight. There is money enough In the hanks. They aro glutted, but labor Un't getting it. It will stay there till labor pets It out." THE Bland selgnorage bill has passed the Senate and now goeeto the President. As It Is fiatlim pure and simple It WM probably paised to remedy a democratic deficiency in the treasury. GILBERT PAJiKER. Aims and Experiences of the Brilliant Ydunff Canadian Novelist, Mr. Farkur l)c»ci-ll)W Ilia Jouriu-y Amiii iho Won.I, mill «lv<-» HI* View* on VnrlouH Mlnniry Qm-«- t,io"IK Of (.110 U»i'- Mr. Gilbert l':irl«'r finished u two months' vi-.it to N''\v York anil was oil for Mi-xir.0 ivix-nLly. His ijuiot wiiys nnd imiisMimini,' iiiiiiiiu-r fiiininl him n host oi frivmls during his visit "• i' 01 "' ago, and this time lie has been the recipient of many attentions from old »nd new ;iuquaintauc«s alike. The past year has been one of tfreat importance iu Mr. Parker's life, for it has seen the publication of two or three of his novels, including "The Trespasser" and "The Trail of the Sword," which hare much increased the reputation obtained by his curlier vulnmes of short stories, "Pierre anil His People" and 'Tales of the Far North," All of 'these books, it will be remembered, deal with life in the Canadian northwest and the Hudson's bay region, which field Mr. Parker has of late monopolized. Although only thirty-, two years old, he has already published seven volumes of Bction, most all of which have been written within the past few years. This he has been able to do by devoting himself exclusively to literary work, after he had bcttled down in England, and because of the extensive material he gathered as a boy in Canada and in his wanderings about the world. Perhaps Mr. Parker's most noticeable personal trait is his adaptability to the company and situation in which he finds himself, although he never seems to lose a slight formality of manner. He dresses in the prevailing' style, when in the city, and has a businesslike air which would be likely to deceive one as to the identity of such an avowed devotee of romance. He seemed disinclined to discuss himself and his work at first, but gradually became interested, and spoke freely of his aims and experiences. His present trip to Mexico, Mr, Parker said, was taken with the object of obtaining a rest and entire change of scene, after a year of very hard work, •nd also to see the country, which he iir Know, ire "vcr knew :my very few tsi'.os was very IIO.VM iiml jrirls as ;i. , frjcvi/tl u> MLV that.

Continuing an account of his travels Mr. Parker said that he crossed the continent from his Canadian home and visited California and the .Sandwich islands, lie lectured and gave dramatic readings in New Zealand and Australia, and in the latter placet formed a connection with the Sidney Morning Herald, one of the largest and wealthiest papers in Highest of all in Leavening Power. —Latest IT. & Baking Powder ABSOLLTTELY PURE For this pappr he traveled through Australia and to Samoa, Tonga, Fiji und Ni'.w Caledonia, writing H wcries of Air. ,1'arker has devoted himself so exclusively to romance as contrastcd with the realistic fiction of many contemporaneous novelists, that it seemed interesting' to get his views on this much mooted literary question. "So fur as my own personal feeling is concerned," he said, "1 arn not a man of theories. Had I been impelled to the world, j write as a realist, 1 should have done JVM: so; but the natural bent of ray mind wus in another direction. 1 suppose 1 had seen what might be tailed the adventurous side of life to some considerable extent, in one way or another, and I believe if a niun lias intense sympathy with tlie large anil (simple emotions and passions of the people who live close to nature in adventurous surroundings, or has boon moved by history or ro- iimnce, he cannot help but. treat all I those subjects which appeal to him »» I subjects fit for fiction from a romantic HARPEN- i standpoint.

While in the South it were, out of ray own thoughts, as if seas he also took to playwrlting for | j |, ad ucvcr spoken them before or George Riffnold, who was . then per- thought them before—that while reforming in Australia.

From tho South seas he went to Hong Kong, and afterwards to India; from India on, leisurely, through Egypt across the Mediterranean, and up through the continent of Europe to England. Then, with the full intention of writing nothing whatever but fiction, determining to shake himself absolutely free of journalism, magazine writing, and all except this one thing, he sallied forth once more across tho wal>:r. to America, and again L!HKA«Y IN TUB HAJtt'KSnKN COTTAGE. had wished to nee ever since he had read the history of the "Conquest of Mexico." It was. a kind of dream of his, just as going to the South seas •was a dream that he was able to carry out. While his visit to the South seas was a more extensive project, inasmuch as it took four solid years out of ] his life, yet the trip to Mexico had a j peculiar interest to him. Certainly | Mexico is H land of romance, and although he might never use it in fiction at all, still he never found that anything he had seen, any atmosphere ho had felt, had ever been lost upon him. The oflect of climate and atmosphere, for purposes of contrast alone, is tremendous, ha thinks, upon one's imagination.! "For instance," • lie. said, "I do not think that I ever know the north until I had known the south. Although I came from the north I never really knew it until I had, ns I say, known the south. Then the north became to me a more wonderful thing. In the south 1 felt the good old strenuousness of tho life in which I was brought up to bo dissipated as time went on; but just as soon as my four years' sojourn was over, when I saw the north star again, I began to feel that old sense ot courage and larger belief • which, I fancy, is the essential characteristic of the north." Mr. Parker's travels have been so extensive that I was Interested to learn how he became such a wanderer on the face of the earth, • In reply to my question he said that, as ;i boy, he always had a desire td see what was beyond the garden wall, what was in the next village, what was in the next town. Whenever he could he went a hundred miles. When at last, he saw chance to go ten thousand miles, through broken health which forced liim ta lay aside thu work he was doing, he said if he must go he would go as far as he could. So lie went to the antipodes. That was, also, the turning point in his life, as ic had been educated for the Church of England, and had passed all his ex- uninationSiUt this time. Ho did not take full orders, because it came over him that a literary life was the only possi- )le life for him. Ho was then a lecturer in English literature in Trinity ollege, Toronto, where he had graduated not long before, but he had always written verses, and even as a :hild of eight or nine years of age the >6etry of Shakespeare and Uyron unconsciously appealed more to his mind tt\2t),.'thfl more ordinary reading: which plunged into the north, where lie remained for a considerable period. Meanwhile Mr. Parker decided to establish a permanent home in England. As he found that he could not live in a large city for more than a few months at a time before he began to droop a little, for lack of outdoor life, he rented a place in Harpcnden, Hertfordshire, a village about twenty- five miles from London, near St. Albans, The cottage shown in the illustration is believed to be a portion of an old monastery, which was connected in some way with one at St. Albans, four miles away. It has this appearance; relics have been found there, and everything about it indicates that it was at one time a part of OII.IIKKT I'AKKKR. u monastery.

The reuli.st- so far as 1 can see—and it is ijuite possible that I do not see very far—is apt to run into the danger of being- pessimistic;!). 1 think it is very remarkable that here you have Stanley Weyman. Hudyard Kip- linfr, Robert Louis Stevenson. Quiller Couch, Barrie, Conau Doylo, who are specially romanticists, and in every case that one thing, courage, a dependence upon the consideration of the elemental passions of mankind, is to be found in tlieir work. It seems to me also that it is one of tho most hopeful signs of these times that out of the extreme ivalismof our life we are turning to dwell upon those larger adventures. The chief object of fiction, as it seems to me. is not to preach, but to interest, to please, to amuse, and to amiiM- in the highest sense. Shakespeare did not write as a preacher nor us. a-teacher. lie wrote, as a romanticist, and he gathered about the characters of whom he wrote an atmosphere in which they did not, perhaps, live; but it carries something to the mind of tho. reader which is far more convincing 1 nnd far more to the temper of their minds, than when the realists photograph the immeasurable misery, stupidity or Crime of any given condition of life, and fail to show in their work more of hope a-ndbright- nessand sweetnesstbnn of sorrow. Take Dickens himself, a superb romanticist —we know that bis humor did not reallv exist—he made it exist. The presentation of character is of infinitely more value, it seems, to me, than the presentation of muri- sordid fact. The romanticist is very apt, perhaps, to make a character of which men may say: 'Well, he did not live.' But in reply to that it might be said: 'lie .night have lived and have been just what the novelist presented him.' With all respect, it seems to roe, and I am only speaking for myself, that Dumas will naturally afford more pleasure—honest, satisfying, refining pleasure—to the minds of the reading people, than Zola, the apostle of realism. I do not speak of Zola as writing of objectionable things, but Zola as writing so largely and so honestly and persistently of painful things; and that is why I have broadly classed the romanticist as a man who relies upon the few elemental passions which al- wa.ys take the ring of hope, courage and fielf-sacriflce, and the realist as one whose methods are within narrower confines, and, therefore, it seems to me, of less general interest."
