Wasiiingtox, March 24 The personnel of the Inter-Stato Commerce Commission is tho chief topic of conversation here, and, as a general thing, the composition of the commission seems to give satisfac tion. The high character, competence and special fitness of the five gent emen for the work before them, is generally ad mitted, and is considered ample com pensation for the long delay in appointing them, and the President is freely credited wi'h having brought one 01 the most dif ficult tasks he has yet encountered to a very gratifying and successful conclusion.

- - - SS Inter-State Commerce. Much fault was found with the Pres ident for apparent tardiness in appoint ing the Inter-State Commerce commis sioners. The law directed that the. commission should be divided politi cally. The law also excludes from the commission all persons holding official relation to, or owning the stock of any common earner, suojecc to uie lmei state act; a provision that not only ex cludes railroad men, but those that hold railroad investments. Thus under the law it became necessary for the Presi dent to move cautiously.. The high standing of the commission justifies the delay. A disregard of political consid erations has marked their selections. Judge Thomas M. Cooley, of Michi gan, appointed for six years, is particu larly fitted by training and experience in railway litigation for the oflice. Mr. Walker, of Vermont, appointed for three years, has had an experience of fifteen years as a railroad lawyer. Mr. 33ragg, appointed for two years, has been president o...

"I inject," Holmansays, "Indiana will give from 10,000 to 15,000 majority to whoever may be the Democratic candidate in '88." We notice the press throughout the country is beginning to realize the de moralizing nature of John Sherman's plan of reducing the surplus by spend ing it in all manner of local undertak ing. A reduction of taxation would suit a tax-ridden people much better. The Inter-state commission is likely to have its hands full, and with so many of the railroads disposed to put the worst possible light upon the law, common fairness demands that the pub lic withhold judgment until it can be given a fair trial. The Daily Minneapolis Messenger is certainly an unusually bright and attractive looking paper. If the people of Minneapolis will stand by the new venture, and give it s...
