The Paris “ Commune" Redescribed. ALL who remember the reports of conditions in Paris, in 1871, during the rule of the “Commune," will recall them with sensations of horror. But here is a witness who comes forward to say that the facts of the case were by no means so lack as they were painted. Prof. Simon Newcomb, the distinguished American astronomer, was in Paris at the time, and now, writing his recollections in the Atlantic Monthly, he says:

"" I should not deem it worth while to record any of our observations of the Paris Commune, were it not that they materially modify the impressions commonly given by the -numerous writings on the history of the Commune. What a historian says may be quite true, so far as it goes, and yet may be so far from the whole truth as to give the reader an incorrect impression of the actual course of events. The following extract of a letter which I wrote to a friend, may not be devoid of interest :

“I must do all hands the justice to say that they are all very well behaved. There is nothing like a mob anywhere, so far as I can find. I consulted my map this morning, right alongside the barricade, and in full view of the builders, without being molested, and wife and I walked through the insurrectionary districts without being troubled or seeing the slightest symptoms of disturbance. The stores are all open, and everyone seems to be buying and selling as usual. In all the cafés I have seen, the habitués seem to be drinking their wine, just as coolly as if they had nothing unusual on their minds.'

“ The nearest approach to a mob that I ever noticed was a drill of young recruits of the National Guard, or a crowd in the court of the Louvre being harangued by an orator. Making due allowance for the excitability of the French character, the crowd was comparatively as peaceable as that which we may see surrounding a gospel wagon, in one of our own cities.''

The War Investigating Commission has been continuing its hearings of testimony in Washington. After General Wheeler concluded his testimony, General N. V. Boynton was heard as to the Camp at Chickamauga, General Fitzhugh Lee as to the encampment at Jacksonville, and General Greene as to the camp at San Francisco, and the situation at Manila. The tenor of the testimony of these officers was much the same as that given by General Wheeler—that there were cases of hardship, and defects in administration, but that these were such as are inseparable from war. Two officers who testified on the 7th, one a Major of the “ Rough Riders,” agreed in saying “that no army was ever so abundantly and luxuriously supplied as was the American army in the Spanish war."'

PRESIDENT MCKINLEY and his wife left Washington on the 8th instant, proceeding to Canton, Ohio, where they attended the funeral of George Saxton, Mrs. McKinley's brother, who was fatally shot last week. The funeral took place on the roth, and the President, accompanied by members of the Cabinet, and others then left for Omaha, Mrs. McKinley remaining at Canton.

THE Legislature of Oregon has elected a United States Senator, Joseph Simon, a lawyer of Portland. There has been a vacancy in the representation of Oregon since March, 1897, and the United States Senate has had but 89 members. The full go is now made up.

CURRENT EVENTS. THERE has been fighting between United States troops under General Bacon, and a band of Chippewa Indians, called the Pillager band. The most serious engagement took place on the 5th inst., about thirty miles from Walker, Minnesota, "close to Bear Island."' An officer, Major Wilkinson, and five of the United States soldiers were killed ; the number of Indians killed is not definitely known. Different explanations are given for the “outbreak,” but a Washington dispatch indicates that as usual the Indians had been misused. The tribe, the Chippewas, is one which for many years past had been peaceful, most of its members being engaged in agri culture. The Chippewas took no part in the Sioux uprising of 1862.

The political canvass in Pennsylvania is exciting much attention. A Governor is to be elected, and the Legislature will choose a United States Senator, the term of M. S. Quay expiring. Three candidates for Governor are in the field : W. A. Stone, Republican, George A. Jenks, Democrat, and Dr. S. C. Swallow, nominated by the Honest Government party, the Prohibitionists, and others. The extraordinary feature is the possibility of the independent vote, broken off from the two old parties, electing Dr. Swallow. It is conceded that the vote for him will be large,--much increased over that which he received in 1897 for State Treasurer, which was about 119,000. It appears doubtful whether a Legislature favorable to Senator Quay will be chosen,

YELLOW fever has taken hold in many places in Mississippi, and a dispatch on the gth from Memphis said the situation was “ assuming grave proportions. There is not a section of the State that has not been visited. Three interstate railways have practically suspended business. Twenty thousard refugees have left the State and gone north to await cold weather. The disease continues to increase steadily in jackson, the State capital. Since September 27 there have been forty-four cases. Only five deaths have been reported since the beginning."

What progress, if any, has been made by the Peace Commission, at Paris, at this writing, has not been disclosed. The question of the “retention” of the Philippine Islands, (though the United States has possession of but a small part of them), seems to be the most serious one. The Spanish at Madrid are said to be just awakening to the unpleasant knowledge that this is the American demand. General Merritt, who went from Manila to Paris, to advise the Commissioners, is reported as advising the retention of the Philippines. On the 9th instant (First-day), the American Commissioners were invited by the French President, Faure, to attend a horse-race at Lorgchamps, near Paris. The dispatch says they "thanked him, but declined the invitation."

UNITED STATES SENATOR QUAY, his son, and C. H. McKee, a lawyer of Pittsburgh, (“law partner" of Walter Lyon, the lieutenant-governor of Pennsylvania), were held in $5,000 bail, on the 5th instant, to stand trial in court the charges of misuse of State and bank money in stock speculation through the late J. S. Hopkins, cashier of the People's Bank of Philadelphia. The hearing of B. J. Haywood, former Treasurer of Pennsylvania, who is charged with the same acts, was set for the 12th instant.

The evidence at the hearing on the 5th consisted of letters, telegrams, etc., from Quay and Haywood, and a memorandum book which Hopkins, (who committed suicide), kept. The impression made upon the public mind is that the prosecution is justified by the testimony so far presented, but that a conviction may or may not be had when the case comes to trial.

The evacuation of Porto Rico by the Spanish troops has proceeded, and will be completed, it is now said, next week. Urgent instructions have been sent to the American Commissioners at Havana to hasten the Spanish evacuation of Cuba, and different dates have been assigned as the probable time when it would be effected. Dispatches at this writing (11

11th), from Paris say that the Spanish premier, Sagasta, is likely to refuse to remove Gen. Blanco and his troops from Havana, while the question of the Philippines remains unsettled. Blanco's men are now said to be well supplied with arms,
