OI'INIOW* OF THE vj J SS.UJE,
The message of the President is
tbe topic of favorable comment in
political circles at Washington Tbe
older members speak of it as one of
the ablest messages which lias ema
nated from tbe Executive for many
years. Tbe Speaker regards it as
the basis of a line of administrative
policy upon which tbe party can
harmoniously act, and is in itself a
wise exposition of tbe Republican
doctrines of government. General
Henderson says that those portions
which more directly interest the
people will bo most cordially ap
proved, especially those portions
which relate toliberal appropriations
for rivers and harbors and for the
recognition of the soldiers of the
late war. Major McKinley is very
enthusiastic in bin approval of the
economic features of the message.
The leading men in the Pennsylva
nia delegation are pleased with the
President's recommendation respect
ing tariff legislation, the building of
additional ships for tbe navy ant]
the establishment of closer relations
with Central and South America !• >
the encouragement of lines of steam
ers with the ports of thosecountries.
Senator Quay 6aid that the mes
sage would make a magnificent cam
paign document and should be placed
in the hands of every Republican
voter in tlic United States. 1 lie
President was highly complimented
bv his more intimate Senatorial
■friends upon the statesmanship dis
played in bis first annual communi
cation to Congress. Congressmen
Henry P. Cheatmau, of North Caro
lina, the only colored member of
the House of Representatives, is
highly pleased with that portion
bearing on the civil and political
rights of the colored people. "The
President," he said "shows liim-eli
to be the firmest l'rieud to my
people who has set in the Executive
chair since it was filled by General
Grant. The dissatisfied colored
element, which has been pretty
noisy of late, will now vanish like a
mist before the rising sun. On the
negro question President Harrison
is pure gold and solid to the center."

Forecast of »l«e frulralilc Work-
I'lic I.owl Salaries.
WASHINGTON, Dec, B.—The re
cent defalcation in the Sergeaut-at-
Arm's office, and the consequent loss
or inconvenience of many Congress
men, have been the engrossing ques
tions of interest around the House
of Representatives during the past
few days, and little thought has
been given to the course of business
in the coining week. If the com
mittee investigating the defalcation
completes its work in season to make
a report to the House to-morrow, it
will undoubtedly give me to much
discussion but the committee does
not expect to be able to finish its
labors until some later day. It is
thought that resolutions will be
introduced and pressed to prompt
passage, to provide for the payment
of the lost salaries, though there are
intimation■; that this will meet with
COM MITTS I: AI'POINTM EIFTS.
The Committee on Rules has not
yet held a meeting, and when the
lions'- assembles to-morrow it will
governed parliamentary practice.
In former years it was the custom
to permit Representatives to intro
duce bills before the committees
were appointed, but \his led to such
confusion in the docking of raeas.il
ea that in the Fiftieth Congress the
practice was discontinued, and it is
hardly probable that it will Lo re
established. There is reason to be
lieve that instead of waiting as usu~
ally to complete the entire list,
Speaker Reed will announce several
of tin* more important committees
this week. In fact he has indicated
to one or two members ofthe House
T: strong probability that lie will do
60. Until these are announced,
■ .owever, : hort sessions and long
rece imay bo expected.
Wednesday at the Cap'tol will b
devoted to tbe program of exercises
commemorative of the Centennial
celebration of the inauguration of
George W nshington.
IN THE SEN YXE.
It, is not expected that any busi
ness of importance will be completed
in the Senate this week. Hills will
be introduced and referred, and
some of the committees will begin
their r> gtilar work. Senator \ oor
hcus will probably call up bis resolu
tion this week in accordance with
the notice given at the,time it was
introduced, declaring in favor ol
tariff reform, and make a speech in
support of it. Action will probably
be taken upon the nominations sent
in by the President last week. These
number 133; all are recent appoint
ments, except that of Judge Hi ewer,
to be an Associated Justice of the
Supreme. Court. The holiday recess
question will probably come up this
week for settlement. It iS believed
on the Senate siele that the recess
will begin December 19 and end
January Gth.— A'c.
Arc 'i'liovt! Too .Tinny
This question is asked by John J.
Wickham 111 the current issue of the
Pittsburg Legal Journal. The
writer is president judge of the
court of Beaver County, and speak
ing from Lis own observation and
knowledge be declares that there
arc too many lawyers and that the
result of this excessive supply is the
impoverishing of the profession,
taking it altogether, and the multi
plication of shysters whose base
instincts and impulses are intensi
fied by the increasing dilPculty ot
making an honest living at the bar.
This prompts them to create busi
ness for themselves by promoting
and prolonging litigation and re
sorting to every despicable form of
David Dudley Field, addressing a
wider forum, takes substantially the
same view. In his address before
the American Bar Association he
gives the number of lawyers in tbe
United States as 70,000, or one to
every 900 of the population, while
France liss only one lawyer to 47(52
of its population and Cerruany one
to 6-133. The business of turning
out lawyers has clearly been over
done. The profession has great at
tractions for ambitous youths.
They are filled with hope and u
laudable spirit of emulation by the
substantial rewards and high honors
gained by the few and tbe best
known, succeed. Then, too the
most direct gateway to public life is
through the bar. It gives aspirans
greater opportunities than any
other to show their metal and win a
political support, while its duties
and demands tend ?•'. develop the
gifts most requisite for success in
deliberative bodies. There will al
ways be. therefore, a large body of
candidates for the legal profession
and as long as admission is as easy
as it is now the profession will be
Sucli warnings from the bench as
Judge Wickham has just given is a
real kindness to those who are still
weighing in their minds what cal
ling to adopt. That there is plenty
of room at the top is a maxim which
is responsible for a great deal of
misery. There is room at the top
because so few are able to get there,
and the newly admitted lawyer
must know that his place is at the
bottom, where competition is keen
est and the fierce struggle for ex
istence consigns all but the fittest to
life cf comparative poverty
Judge Wick ham proposes to make
admission to the bar more difficult
by adding to the requirements and
the years of preparation. His
strictures apply to the bar in nearly
every state, certainly in every East
ern state, where according to un
contradicted testimony, th. number
of lawyers has increased unduly, is
K? ill increasing, and ought to be
diminished, not simply for the sake
of the lawyers, but because the pub
lic would be better served by a
smaller number having a higher
average capacity and learning.— Mx.
