" \VARFAIIE has ceased between France
and China. The cessation is said to be
due to German mediation. It is report
ed that fully 4,500 of the French troops
in Tonquin are sick. The French have
gained too little in this unnecessary war
to repay them for the expense and
THE bunko thieves continue to flour
ish in Denver. They recently robbed a
rich ranchman of $10,000. It seems
rather singular that the authorities of
the Queen City of the Plains permit
these scoundrels to make that place
their headcoiarters. It looks very much
as if the bunkoists were paying a lib
eral percentage to some one for the
privilege of robbing visitors.
"IT struck me as rather peculiar , "
said an old gentleman in this office a day
or two ago , "that as I came here from
the east I saw no babies on the train un
til after I got west of Chicago. From
that time on there were lots of 'em , and
the further west we traveled the more
babies there seemed to be. I suppose
they were taking an early start to grow
up with the country. " Beatrice Ex
THE ancient world had its priestesses ,
and was ever wont to see its sweetest
and highest ideals Beauty , Love , Wis
dom , Justice in woman form. It is a
touch of nature that paints Dante be
side , but looking up to , Beatrice.In
all the world's dark history of blood and
chaos , womanhood has stood stainless
and steadfast linked close to God to
tiolcl humanity to its orbit by the power
of deathless love. In all the crisjs of
life , when the heart breaks , when faith
fails , when the strong man bows himself
to storm and agony , it is to the mother-
face he looks , to the hand that held his
first he clings. Selected.
THE project of a railway tunnel un
der the straits of Dover , connecting
France and England , has long been dis
cussed , and while Captain Eads was in
England he was consulted as to its feas
ibility. Captain Eads pronounces the
enterprise entirely practicable as the
bearings in the earth show no great ob
stacle to the construction of the tunnel.
It would certainly be a great enterprise ,
and would be appreciated by the multi
tudes who daily cross the rough seas of
the English channel. The main obsta
cle , however , to the proposed tunnel is
England's hostility to the project , on the
ground that it might be used advan
tageously against England in case of
hostility. This fear is certainly absurd ,
for England and France could stop up
the ends of the tunnel in case of war ,
and let it remain unused during hostili

The retirement of Commissioner
Dudley from the Pension OHice on
the 10th of November , will be hailed
with eminent satisfaction by all who
believe that the afiairs of the Pension
Oflice can be more satisfactorily ad
ministered. Mr. Dudley's manage
ment has brought the ofiice three
years behind in its business , although
he has had an army of clerks , and the
expense of running his office for a
single year has amounted to $850,000.
The fact that applications for pensions
filed as long ago as 1882 are just be
ginning to be reached in their order ,
shows a , want of system or discipline
or both , which can be readily supplied
by some one who has a better appreci
ation of his official duties. If the ad
ministration carries out its ideas of
Civil Service Reform with sincerity ,
Major Clarke , the present Assistant
Commissioner , with advanced ideas
upon a proper pension system , would
and should receive the appointment.
The necessity for a reorganization
of the United States Supreme Court
becomes more and more pressing with
the advent of each recurring session.
\Vith nine judges almost constantly
at work , the court is still so overrun
with new cases that it has become an
absolute impossibility to advance even
a step upon the three years that the
court has lagged behind its calendar.
Sitting from October to May , these
judges dispose of about three hundred
cases , while the number of new cases
that it will encounter at the opening
of the session next month will be up
wards of 400 , thus throwing its work
back still another year. Thrice has
the Senate passed a bill looking to the
relief of the court , by reducing the
numper of appeals and conferring in
creased jurisdiction upon inferior
courts , but the House has each time
failed to reach the bills , though the
Speaker's table was loaded with pe
titions praying for action upon them.
Under the present right of appeal ,
this , the highest tribunal in the land ,
has infinitely more of its time occu
pied with petty cases that involve
neither principle nor property , than
with those involving grave constitu
The personnel of the Supreme
Court has often been remarked upon ,
but I have never seen a newspaper
description that did the court justice.
Beginning with'Chief Justice AVaite ,
whose grey hair and beard and big
mouth and big nose are all that bear
any resemblance to a judge , one is set
to wondering how any such a look
ing man as that could ever get into a
seat once occupied by Marshall ? Mil
ler , who sits afc the right of the Chief
Justice , has the bearing , the learning
an-.l all the requisites of a judge , ex
cept the appearance , which is that of
a thrifty Iowa husbandman. Justice
Field , the left supporter of the Chief
Justice , is a gander-legged , bald-
[ leaded , full-bearded , gold-bowed-
spectacled lawyer , whose chief quali
fication for his appointment consisted
of his bein"1 the brother of David
Dudley a'nd Cyrus W. He is a Dem
ocrat , and a hard-shelled one at that.
Justice Bradley is a small man. with
large capacity for somnolence on the
bench. lie is , however , clear-headed ,
and has no reason to keep nwake to
listen to the soporific Supreme Court
arguments. Harlan is a handsome
Kentuckian who is long all over as
well as long-headed. He chews to
bacco amazingly , but withal is an ex
cellent judge who writes excellent
opinions. Woods was little known
as a soldier in Georgia , but will be
less known as : i judge , while Gray ,
of Boston , is every inch of his six feet
four , a stalwart specimen of the New
England jurist. Gray is an old bach
elor , crispy and snappy , but he can
work off more business than any two
of his associates. Stanley Matthews
has no business on the bench of the
Supreme Court , and Blatchibrd , who
was an admirable district court judge
in New York , is not basement high
in this court. DOM PEDIIO.
