THE squabble over who shall write the authorized biography

THE public is begining to wonder whether Senator "Billy"
Mason's talk apparatus has only slipped a cog, or is permanently
out of repair.
HONORABLE JOHN BARRETT, the ex-Minister to Siam, openly

THE Senate has at last got the financial debate to moving,
but it is one-sided, as the oponents of the financial bill are doing
all the talking.
JUST by way of keeping in the swim the French and Chinese
have been fighting in Tonkin, and, after getting several drub-
bings, the French have come out on top.
REFERRING to the testimony taken by the Senate Committee
in the Clark bribery case, men did the talking to the Montana
Legislators instead of allowing money to do it.
HONORABLE GROVER CLEVELAND and Captain Roble D. Evans
are still hunting chums, but United States light house tenders are
no longer used to carry them to the hunting grounds.
THE managers of the Paris Exposition evidently do not real-
ize the extent of the amateur photography craze, or they would
not have adopted rules so antagonistic to the "Rends."
PHOTOGRAPHERS do not have to ask Governor Roosevelt to
smile and look pleasant; if ever he was photographed without
a smile the picture has been concealed from the public.
GENERAL JAMES H. WiLSON'8 expressed opinion of the Cu-
bans ought to put him in line for political preferment, should he
conclude to remain on the Island after it becomes self-govern-

THERE is naturally a difference of opinion as to the good
taste of the Americus Club of Pittsburg, in offering to contribute
$200,000 to the campaign fund of his party if the President will
make a political speech at the Grant Anniversary celebration of
the club next April.
As FEW of Oom Paul's followers are familiar enough with
history to know that in war it is the side with the most men and
the heaviest guns that usually wins, they are doubtless much
cheered by his assertion that Providence is on their side and
that they are bound to win.
ATTORNEY-GENERAL GRIGGS has rendered an opinion that
may arouse as much harsh criticism as the "canteen" opinion
did. It is that Admiral Sampson commanded the American
fleet in the battle of Santiago. It was rendered in connection
with a claim for prize money.
