The ka)eido*co]»e of |sditics presents an ever changing scene.

It remains 1 to be seen whether or not the enthusias tic supporters of Blaine will go to his standard or become divided in supjiort of other candhlates. Alger, Reed, Lin coln ami McKinley are remote |s*ssi- bilities, but the chances are now that Harrison will have a clean sweep, in which case he will command the full strength of his party ami no more. In the Democratic camp* the situation is more complex. Cleveland has the personal endorsement of the masses of the Democratic voters. He is a clean man with a record for firmness and hon esty unsurpassed, and yet it is the cur rent belief that he will lx* unable to carry his own State, ami his new*, not the man, find weighty opposition in the Went and South. Thus if nominated, his election would lx* involved in doubt. Hill, Cleveland’s most formidable antag onist, has for yean* been grooming for the race. His success in carryiug N York State has won consideration for [ him elsewhere, and his notable speech in advocacy of free silver lia* gained for him supporters iu the silver West and the South. Even among those who have no respect for his methods, we find a strong under current of belief that Hill can be nominated and elected. He is in fall control of the machine, which he is cleverly directing with his own hand*, while Cleveland stands aloof apparently the most unconcerned of all the political chiefs. Should Cleveland withdraw. Hill would occupy the same relative podtion to the Democracy that Harrison now does to (he Republicans, but their Moses dead, the Aarons would arise and the pronounced opposition to Hill would turn to Boise, Palmer, Gorman Cleveland, however, docs not speak, and his silence means to his followers acqui escence, and thus it appears just now that the struggle, in the Chicago conven tion, will be between Hill and Cleveland, with the others we have named as remote and counterpart posibilities. independent :v to bis professi | fact that it is the ; cation in which si man can engage, ami I to which he can apply his energy ami i strength.

From our Regular Correspondent. Washington, Feb. 15,1892.—Speak er Crisp is thoroughly in accord with the d»ire to make a calm, conservative and bosineat-like investigation of the pension office ami its methods of doing business, and in selecting the committee author ized by the House resolution he made good u*e of bis knowledge of the mem bers of the House ami named men who will sit with the *anie impartiality on the evidence presented to them and as carefully sift it, in order to throw out that which in their judgment i* based on hatred or ja-rsonal prejudice, as they would if sitting as judges in a court of « . The Democrats on the committee e Representatives Wheeler, of Michi gan, Little of New York, ami Dungun, of Ohio; the Republicans, Messrs. Lind, of Minnesota ami Brosius, of Pennsyl vania, all ex-Union soldiers. Representative Hoar, of Massachu setts, i* confident that tlu* adoption of his resolution hv the House authorizing the committee on manufactures to inves tigate the socalled “sweating" system of tenement house labor, is a long step in the right direction, and lie predicts that the result of the investigation will he some startling facts of special interest to those who wear "ready made” cloth ing. Before the House adopted the res olution it adopted an amendment direct ing the committee to inquire how much increase the McKinley hill has caused in the wages *»F workmen employed in industries protected by the terms of that bill. It also afterwards -adopted a reso lution offered l»v Mr. Holman, restrict ing the. cost of the investigation to $3,000. Speaker Crisp has given some of the Democratic ineinla*rs who have been careless as to their attendance on the ses sions of the House a little lecture on their duties, taking his text from the lack of a .quorum of Democrats on the floor, which the other day enabled the Republicans to compel an adjournment. A second lecture on this subject should not lx* necessary. The Senate committee on agriculture will report a resolution providin' the apiMtintmeiit of a number of sul>- committees to make an investigation, committee to each branch oi the subject, for the purpose of ascertaining the pres ent condition of agriculture in the Uni ted .States, the prices of its products, and if there be any of which the prices depressed, the cause of such depression ami the remedy therefor. This resolu tion will be reported as a substitute tor Senator George’s resolution for an inves tigation of the depression in the cotton- raising States. Representative Wheeler, of Alabama, j has sent a cold shiver down the spinal | columns of all the big office holders by i introducing a resolution instructing the several committees in charge of appro priation hills to make reductions of 20 per cent, in all official salaries of §5,000 or more—that would catch Senators and Representatives—and of 1ft per cent, in all salaries of $8,000 or more. An attempt is being made to get the ivs and means committee of the House to grapple with the cigarette evil by re porting a bill placing *an internal reve nue tax of $10 per 1,000 on all cigar ettes offered for sale, whether of domes tic or foreign manufacture. A memorial showing that tin* excessive use of cigar ettes has, during the year, killed 100 young men, and sent an equal numl»er to the insane asylums is being circulated in Congress. The manner in which the annual ap propriation bill tor the military academy was reduced by the House, sitting a* a committee of the whole, before it was passed, in spite of the |*owerful influences brought to l*ear in favor of |>a-siug it as reported from the committee on military affairs, ha* convinced a good many people who had doubts on the subject that when the Democratic leaders said economy in public expenditures would la*, enforced by the House, they indulged in no idle talk. Republicans may sneer, but when the people’s verdict is heard next November the Democrats will get their reward. The bliud free coinage bill, now on the House calendar, is the subject of much talk in and out of Congress. It is favored on principle by a very large ma jority of the House, but whether a ma jority of the Democrats believe it polit ical wisdom to pas* it at this time will very soon be known, as a petition asking the committee *»n rules to set a date for its consideration by the House is now Wing circulated for Democratic signa tures.
