Wherever Pennsvlvanians met in
Washington, last Saturday, words were
spoken, which, if the late Christopher
L. Magee could have heard them,
wonld have convinced him that he had
gained the highest prize acheivable by
a human being, the unqualified good
opinion of all his fellow men with who
he came into contact. Men who were
on the other side daring the bitter Sen
atorial fight had only good words for
After proceedings lasting six days,
the extraordinary session of the Senate
was declared adjourned sine die last
Saturday afternoon. During the session
practically no business except thst of
executive character was transacted.
The session was called by the President
that the senate might have opportu
nity to confirm appointments made at
at the beginning of the new adminis
tration. That business accomplished,
there was nothing further for the Sen
ate to do.
At the opening of Saturday's session
the President pro tem.. Senator Frye,
was inducted into office, the oath being
administered by Vice President Roose
Hon. John H. Mitchell, the recently
elected Senator from Oregon, was pre
sented by his colleague. Senator Simon,
and took the oath of office. He got a
cordial reception from his colleagues on
the floor, many of whom had served in
the Senate, with him, and from his
friends in the galleries, who greeted his
appearance with hearty applause. Sev
eral baskets of beautiful roses and
jonquils, arranged in elaborate designs,
adorned the desk of Mr. Mitchell. Mr.
Mitchell's 18 years service in the Senate
and his admirable qualities as a man
and legislator, have made him popular
among his colleagues.
Senator Carter's magnificent oratori
cal achievement should not pass into
history without proper recognition by
the press of the country. The Montana
philanthrdpist held the floor for the
twelve hours between midnight and
noon. It is a delight to read the report
of his remarks in the Congressional
Record. The flow of his eloquence was
only when he courteously
yielded to questions or t«> int» rlH ,]aU;d
statements by other Senators, or to nec
essary business not connected with the
bill he was discussing. His good humor

inflexible, his irony superb and his vo
cabulary unlimited. When Mr. Carter
stood aside at last to allow ttie Senate
to engage in the concluding ceremonies
of the session and to adjourn sine die,he
had saved to the Treasury fifty million
dollars. Few orators have ever spoken
to better purpose, or showed a greater
knowledge of all the little streams, big

that flow through the United States <or

At Scranton, last Saturday, Judgft
Archbald granted a writ of qno warran
to against , Recorder Moir, formerly
Mayor, to appear in court on March 111
and show by what authority he as
sumes the office of Recorder, to which
Gov. Stone has appointed him under the
provision of the ripper bill By these
proceedings he will have to assert the
constitutionality of the measure.
The proceedings are at the suggestion
of Attorney General Elkin at the jxdi
tion of iormer State Senator McDonald,
whose coming into the case gave an
early impression that the movement
was a Stalwart one to secure a decision
quickly where the sentiment was friend
ly to the operation of the new charter.
"The report that ex-Senator W. H.
Andrews may be a candidate for State
Treasurer is interesting. This is the
same Andrews who was recently read
ontof the Stalwart faction of the Repub
lican party. It is to be presumed JUiat,
what he wants is a vindication, and
that his candidacy is meant to give the
rank and file an opportunity to pass
opinion upon his party standing. Well,
Andrews has a precedent. Senator
Quay once, when his hold had slipped
on the party machine, threw down the
gauntlet to his enemies and became a
candidate for State Treasurer. He nlso
became State Treasurer ard stepped
from the treasury into the United States
It is not meant to infer that because
Senator Quay did tlij« thing Andrew?
will <lo it, too. But Andrews is a clever
politician, and his audacity may win.
In any event, hincandidacy will be wel
comed an giving opportunity for the
plain people to nay what they think
about his party loyalty and personal
popularity. Andrews does not appear
to think that Atone. Elkin, Durham and
Beacoiu arc final authority apon matter

may lie right. Meantime th" quarrel

Benjamin Harrison on our Kela
tions to Great Britain.
While we are unable to conc-nr in all
the opinions expressc-d by ex-Pres:dent
Harrison upon current topics in the
North American Review, we heartily
approve of what he says this mc 3th
about the alliance, sometimes mooted,
between the United States and Great
Britain. The subject perhaps would not
be worth discussing had not Mr. Cham
berlain once referred to it as an impend
ing. if not accomplished, fact. The
truth, of coarse, is that no convention
to tha" effect has ever been signed, nor
is there any evidence that the subject
has been discussed, even informally, by
the r pn sentatives of the respective
With regard to the so-called tie of
kinship, Gen. Harrison admits that,
while the Scot, the Irishman, the Wein
man, the German, the Frenchman, the
Hollander, the Dane, the Sweede. the
Norwegian and lately, the Italian and
the Slav, have all brought contributions
to the complex American product, our
speech is wholly, and onr derived in
stitutions are chiefly, English. Indis
putably, we have pride in the great poets,
philosophers, jurists, historians and
story writers who have honored the
tongue we nse, and we are grateful to
them. Gen. Harrison is careful to
point ont, however, that the debt is
personal, not national. The saino dis
tinction is kept in view, when he con
cedes that we recognize a fellowship
with the stout Britons who sheared the
prerogatives of the Stuart kings, and
with the English martyrs who died for
freedom of worship. We are grateful,
however, to them, not to the govern
ment that persecuted them. Gen. Har
rison submits that it is not logical to de
rive from such considerations the de
duction that onr sympathies mnst be
given to every British Ministry that in
augurates a war without reference to its
origin or justice. "We did not take
English literature or English law by
voluntary conveyance upon a conside
tion of love or affection."
It is further suggested that the ar
gument for a friendly spirit toward
Great Britain might be stronger if the
plea of gratitude were made less of.
Manifestly, gratitude takes account, not
of one incident, but of all relevant in
cidents during a nation's existence. For
that reason pro-British Americans
might deem it expedient not to strike
the average between 1774 and 18fW.
Things might be found in it that it
would be pleasanter to forget than re
member. In connection with this sub
ject. Gen. Harrison directs attention to
a fact, which we have often pointed ont
the fact, namely, that previously to the
Spanish-American War, the historian
cannot find in British-American diplo
matic intercourse a single instance
where friendship for the L nited States
led to any substantial abatement of
British pre tensions.or to sympathetic at
titude toward us in the times of our
stress and agony, or even to the exhibi
tion of any special consideration when
a demand for redress was presented.
We are reminded that "the demand
for the release of Mason and Slidell was
couched in very harsh and peremptory
terms. Nay, it is understood that, but
for the kindly intervention of Queen
Victoria, an abasement would have
been put upon as that we could only
have accepted with a time reservation,
that is to sav, until our fleets and armies
had finished the work in hand. " Gen
Witrrison recalls that, throughout onr
Civil Waf, the la titude or
Government was hostile and hurtful.
Its unfriendliness only stepped short of
an open alliance wi* h * l " 1 "
Confederacy. Neither kinship nor a
long record Of ostentations reprobation
of slavery on the part of British philan
thropists availed to overbalance the
commercial advantage to l»e derived
from trade with a non manufacturing
cotton raising nation. "The threaten
ing attitude of Great Britain was no
small part of the breaking burden that
weighed the shoulders of Abraham
Lincoln." Although there were notable,
examples of good will to the Union
canse among individual Britons, as, for
instance. John Bright and Gold win
Smith, the Lancashire cotton spinners
were the only large body of British
subjects that showed us a friendship
which costs something,
In ex-President Harrison's opinion,
it is illogical to use Great Britain's dis
play of friendliness during the Spanish-
American War as a sponge with which
to wijss from the tablets of memory the
decisive intervention of France during
onr Revolution and the helpful attitude
of Rnssip, during our Civil War. He
thinks that the spongo should be u->ed
only to efface any rancorous recollect; n
of old manifestations of unfriendliness
by Great Britain toward us, »r by us to
ward her, and to give 11s a clean slate'
upon which, we may hope, shall be re
corded an unbroken future of kindli
ness and good will. Here we are re
minded that Washington did not allow
gratitude to France for an armed and
saving intervention in onr behalf to be
made the justification of alliance that
would bring us into European entangle
ments. Why, then should we now
allow the friendly non-intervention of
Great Britian during the Spanish war,
a non-intevention which cost her noth
ing, to lie thus used ?
On the whole, Gen. Harrison in con
vinced that a flood of /nab and nnreaeon
about "an Anglo-Saxon paramountry"
and about alleged irrepressible sympa
thies of English speaking peoples ip
likely rather to thwart, than to promote
a good understanding. To every flood
there comes an ebb. Would not any
attempt, he auk*, to put Great Britain
and the United State* in the relation of
allien have an inevitable tendency to
raise up awl strengthen an anti-British
party in the Uuited States, and an aiit;-
Ainerican party in Ore.it Britain?
Wonld not bariud injuries and gi ndgeH
l>e dug up and exploited for a domestic
party advantage? The*- are forces
that become destructive if they are
pent; from this point of view opinion •
and gunpowder are in the same class "
Oen. Harrison holds that, if a friend
ship between Great Britain and the
United States, that will make tleir im
mediate relations cordial and combine
their influence for peace and human
pn«gross, is to be made permanent and
become a fixed status, it must be found
edon a moral, instead of a commercial,
basis. Morals abide; commercial inter
ests shift. The friendship must not in
volve enmity to the rest of the world, fir
exact an approval by the one nation of
every public act of tho other ll must
not lie put u|siri grounds too tenuously
sentimental, nor must tho quid pro quo
argument lie too much pressed.
In a word, if the great English »p"ak
ing nations are to l>e lasting friends, it'
they are to live together in amity and
work together in their foreign policies,
it must be upon a basis that does not
repel, but invites, the participation of
all other civilized peoples in every pro
ject for the development and peace of
mankind not upon tho pernicious and
1 utile project of an Anglo-Saxon domi
; nation.—N. Y. Sun,

The Frecport Bank Matter.
With tears streaming down his aged
face and his bodv shaking with emotion.
Cashier C. M. Lndwick, of the Freeport
bank, confessed to President Isaac
Guckenheimer, Tuesday, that he, and
not his son Charles, was a defaulter.
The confession was made at the home
of the cashier, and as the old man told
the story of his dishonor to the man
who had first placed him in the bank,
his familv joined their tears with his.
The scene affected Mr. Guckenheimer
greatly, and be could hardly realize that
the gray-haired man whom he had trust
ed for so many years had broken the
trust reposed in him.
President (Jnckenheimer, on receiving
word from Freeport that President Lud
wick had disappeared, went to that
place. Lndwick was found early Mon
day morning Mr. Guckenheimer saw
him at the Lndwick home. He was
there told the story of the defalcation
by his aged cashier, and that the son
Charles had sacrificed himself to save
his father from imprisonment. The old
man told bow he had taken the bank's
money and used it in speculation, intend
ing each week to cover the shortage of
the one before. For five years he had
been taking a little at a time, all of
which he had lost, until the amount bad
After the confession Cashier Lndwick
turned over to the bank soo,ooo in col

institution was amply protected.

Christopher Lyman Magee one of the
State Senators from Pittsburg, died at
his temporary residence in llarrisbiirg,
last. Friday, aged years.
Senator Magee had been gradually
but surely sinking since Thursday,
Febrnary UH, when he was informed
that the Ripper Bill hail finally passed
lhe House. During the desperate fight
on that measure he had maintained that
it could not pass, and was greatly in
terested in the progress of the contest.
When he was told of the result he sank
back on his pillow and seemed to lose
all energy and interest in everything.
From that hour until his death Friday
afternoon he did not read or ask to have
read to him any newspapers* He did
net discuss public affairs or any of the
subjects in which he had previously
taken such great interest. From that
hour his great recuperative powers
seemed to have diverted him, and each
succeeding day found him weaker than
on the day lie fore He rolled aud tossed
in his bed and could not secure rest
<>n Sunday bis stomach began to resist
food On Monday it would not retain
anything. Then the members of his
family were summoned
Senator Magee's illness may be dated
from about two years ago, although
during many years previous he was a
Kreat sufferer of hemorrhoids. During
the legislative session of I SUM ltd he was
a very sick man, but continued to per
form Ins duties until adjournment on
April ij~, IM!t!i
He was born and raised in Pittsburg
and took an interest in local and state
politics, almost from boyhood
