According to this gentleman, the next speaker of (he house. Mr. Cannon, la more determined than he was at the last session to assert the dignity of what has been commonly accepted as the popular body of congress. - r It la stated that Speaker Cannon during his visit .to the east, and particularly dur ing hla vacation on Representative Sibley's yacht, took up with hla associates the rights of the house of representatives with a view of ascertaining just how far he could expect, the members to stand with i him upon the proposition of bringing back J the old-time dignity of the popular branch of government. .'.'.,' No man In congress . has ..had more p- portunlty to feel, the 'practical effect of the Vn disposition of the senate to, have ita own way than .the gentleman who retires rrom the head .of the appropriations committee of the houae to become speaker of that body.

The house has fumed and fretted against the practice of the senate and unimportant members have delivered themselves of great bursts of oratory against the senate's high- I handed procedure, . but- these, fulmlnatlons fell on the senate a harmless as the rain on the' Washington .' monument.

It 4s expected that If a contest should result - . -i. i 1,111 klVi h It will come on the financial bin wnicn tne the next session. The Issue between the senate and the houae, it is anticipated, will , be Joined On ths bill to Increase ths cur rency, and to give it an elasticity which It doea not have. . Mr.' Cannon holds to views diametrically opposed to those of Senator Aldrlch. Mr.. Cannon's difficulty will probably be In getting the house to agree upon a measure and then to stand hack ot that agreement. The fact 1 that ths republicans ot the house are badly spilt up on the financial question, while In the senate the republicans are likely to support any bill that the finance committee brings tn. especially a bill framed by such men as Senators Aldrlch, -Piatt of Connecticut, Allison and Spooner. Model of Ship Constitution. A perfect model, soma six feet In length, of the famous old United States frigate "Constitution,"' has Just been completed by O. W, Barnes, superintendent of the pen sion office, and placed on exhibition In the great hall of the Pension bureau, btelng upon a pedestal about on the spot where the bandstand is located during Inaugural balls. The model Is perfect In every detail, and being that of a style of vessel rarely ever seen, even by those who live on the seacoast, In these, modern days when all or nearly all ocean-going craft are pro pelled by steam, It Is a most Interesting exhibit aalds from .the. fact that It la a model of the. most famous .vessel, of the early days of the American navy. It at tracts the attention of hundreds of visitors daily and will very probably be loaned to tke Louisiana Purchase exposition. Its builder served many years In the American navy and It construction was a labor of love. Mr. Barnes worked on his model of Constitution at odd hours after his official duties St the department ceased each day for over a year., A card attached to the frame on which 'the model of Contltution rests gives many Interesting points reUtlve to the dimensions of the famous frigate and will doubtlesa be read with as much Interest as is dally evlncrd by visitors to the Pension bureau. The length ot Con stitution over all was 304 feet, breadth of beam, 43 feet. It was launched October XI, 1787, and tarried when put Into com mission 400. officers and men. The original cost ot the ' f rlgsts was 3ul,Tls and the total running expenses per year were tUS. 000. Constitution was designed by Joshua Humphreys of. Philadelphia aad Paul Re vere, the famed rider nf the revolution, furnished the copper used in sheeting the hull. The first flag was hoisted on Con stitution by Samuel NUftolson snd bore fifteen stripe Instead of, thirteen. The armament oflhe hlsterlo frigate waa com Yosed of thirty twenty-four-pounders and twenty-four thirty-two and twenty-eight-pounders, . ' .'

ARCHBISHOP FAVORS THE DEPARTURE Ho- ta In Kurour, hot Will Take It Work Actively on Hla Retarn-to the Inlted State. DUBUQUE, la.. Aug. JS.-Speclal.)-The German priests of the archdiocese of Du buque have banded together for the pur pose of waging war on social! Ism. The key note of the priests' campaign was sounded from the pulpit of St. Mary's church this morning' when Rev. Father Rohlman, as sistant pastor, urged German Catholics to bandon the teachings of socialism and do U in their power to check Its growth. Three hundred members of his congrega tion are socialists and thu Catholic author ities have become alarmed at the large number of German Catholics who have be. come affiliated with the socialist party the pasi year. It Is understood that this movement among the German priests has the support of Archbishop Keane, who, previous to his departure for Germany two months ago, urged the priests to do their utmost to check the spread of socialism among their parishioners and endeavor to reclaim Ger man Cathollra who hive accented lis teach ings. Circulars were sent to all of the Ger man priests In the archdiocese Inviting mem to come to Dubuque and attend a series of lectures on socialism, and also to discuss plans for organisation to fight It from the pulpit. One hundred and fifty nrleats from VAftnil riart nf thA nmhrtln. cese responded to the call and all pledged themselves tn rin their t,nf tn imhnM the supremacy of the church and put down socialism in their parishes. Next Sunday socialism will be condemned from the pul- pit of most of the German Cathollo churches In the archdiocese and tke cru sade win be continued with vigor until ths priests are satisfied that they have re claimed all of their parishioners who have become affiliated with - the socialist party. Archbishop Keane Is expected here from Europe m a few weeks and he will take an active part' In the crusade. v PANIC SEIZES PASSENGERS Most of Men. Ken Cool, but Few .
