Tho investigating committee which
is looking into tho acts of state ofllcers,
mado an attempt to intorriow Secro
tai y of State Porter Monday. Tho seo
rotary would not go to tho commltteo
bo the committee went to him, He was
cornet ed in his olllco and having no
chance toiflee, could not very well es
cape answorlng questions, When the
commltteo asked bitu to produco tho
tally sheets of tho recount commission
ho said that owing to his being away at
tho tlmo tho recount was completed ho
did not know whero thoy woro. Tho
secretary of stato wns then asked if h
had viewed thu lieots lately, and said
if he had hn would not let the commlt
teo see them, for it was Ills duty to
keep them out of sight, and while he
didn't know whether ho knew where
tho papers were, ho was quite suro that
whether ho know or didn't know it
would bo all tho same as far ns tho
commltteo was concerned.
O An o.xehango sternly 'rebukes tho
nervous populists who fear that Col.
Hryan Is making so much money lec
turing for half the gate repelpts thnt he
may soon become it plutocrat as fol
lows; "Ho may bo making and laying
up a good deal of money, but It is not
iu nature thnt lie should becomo a plu
tocrat, no matter how full his strong
boxos grow. A plutocrat Is a rich man
who doesn't believe In 10 to 1. Any
other fellow enii boas licit as Im do
sires without hurting Ills professional
standing ns a populist or democrat."
(iossip lias it that the president with
tho assistance of Generals Miles and
Corbln, Is going to personally direct
military matters in tho Philippines,
leaving Secrotarj Uoot a free hand to
ha n die tho important semi-iogal mat
ters which aro constantly coming up
In consequents of our military gov
ernment of Cuba and Porto Rico. This
may or may not bo true, but any plan
depoiiding upon tho harmonious work
ing togother of Miles and Corbln starts
witlt failure staring it in tho fnce. Of
course if the president orders General
Miles to Join General Corbin in confer-
once with him in- will have to do it,
but tho Hphit wsth which ho would en
tor such conferences might bo easily
Admiral Dowoy having cabled his ap
approval of the plans submitted to him
through tho courtesy of Secretary Long
of tho Washington commltteo of one
hundred for his reception at Washing
ton and tho presentation to him of tho
sword voted to him by congress, the
cummitteo arc working to makn tho
event a notable one, ami everybody
seems disposed to help them. No
exact date can bo set for tho reception
yet, but inasmuch as this reception is
to bo a 8 jmioillclal affair, participated
iu by tho piesldcnt and his cabinet,
ami all the prominent public men who
happen to bo iu Washington at tho
time, a strong 'effort will bo mado to
get tho admiral to cumo direct to Wash
ington without stopping at Now York
and let tho Washington reception bo
tho tifot ho receives iu this country.
While fishing in tho Platto at Fro
inont tho other.'day.a llshoriiian caught
an allgalor two and ouo-lialf feet iu
lenutli. Thu L'liutu muy lu umtvuu of
time produco bomolhiug up to date.
Somo years ago it gave up thopetnlied
remains of a broutotheiiidae, an an
cient specie of tho quadruped tribe
which used to inhabit tho earth aud
is known in Indian history us tho
"thunder beast," on account of tho
noise it made. Years later another
quaint specimen of tho biped class
was found on the Platto, tho exuet
date iu history being lost, which hns
tho same characteristic of tho anclout
"critter." It travels around oyer tho
couitrv raising a "thuudor" of a noiso
to mako other earthly inhabitants ho
llcvesjino terriblo calamity is about
to bofallthem, and will no doubt bo
referred to a thousand years as the
"thunder benst of the demo-pops."
Wo hope tho good people who have
capturod this last specimen of antiquity
from tho go'.don sands of tho Platte
at Fremont will have the goodness to
cut its tongue out beforo it acquires
any of tho characteristics of its prede
cessors. It is not ditllcult to understand why
the president choso Mr. Kliliu Hoot of
New Yotk, an eminent lawyer, to suc
ceed Secretary Aluor. at tho head ol
the war department. Whilo this ad-
ministration, as a remit of tho war
witlt Spalii, has liad more legal ques
tions, and more ditllcult ones to deal
with than usually falls to tho lot of an
administration, tho president's cabinet
has had less legal talent than most
any president's cablnot has over had.
Another good lawyer was needed iu
tho cablnot, aud President McKinloy
along with nearly everybody else,
thiuks Mr. Hoot will till tho b.ll. If
public commoudatlon countid for any
thing, it would bo cot tain that secre
tary Hoot would become a very popu
lar official, but it will really depend
largely upon what occurs iu the Phil
ippiues. If wo wiu in all tho lighting
aud no scandals devolop iu connection
witlt the army ovor there, everybody
will slug Secretary Root's praises.
Hut if thinjs go wrong iu uuy way
when there is lighting on hand, the
Auiericau people have u habit, as old
as tho government, of holding the sec
retary of war responsible, and tho
now secretary will havo to take his
chances. In any ovont, ho is not likely
to tlnd tho war departmnet a bed of
