THE NEWS IX WASHINGTON.
Will the Admiral Accept the NomiDation
-The WTork of Schemers.
From out Regular Coi respondent.
There has been a deal of guess
ing lately, as to whether or not
Admiral Dewey would accept a
nomination for the Presidency.
Especially among people who
work in grind-stone stores, and
sandwich factories, and who are
therefore well qualified to ex
press an opinion, has the ques
tion been rife. It is rather hard
to say just what one would do,
were he in Oom George's place.

The Ladies' Missionary society j nmn himself, your correspondent
will venture the prediction that
Dewey would not accept the
nomination, even if offered to
him with good chances of suc
cess. Why should lie? He is
the dean of his craft in this
country, and the first of sailors
in all the world.
Would it not be a poor ex- j

ii figure-head, either on a Re
publican, Democratic, or just
plain Dewey ticket. And they
figure on playing for what they
are pleased to torm, the, "hey
seed vote." But it would surely
seem that Dewey has too much
regard for his own dignity to
submit, to any proceedings not
in keeping with it. If Cousin
George really wanted the office,
it is probable that his admiring
fellow-countrymen would not re
fuse it to him, but the indications
are that he decidedly does not.
Just at present, Oom George is
doing nothing more startling
than taking pills, and passing

The fact is, that the American
people are afflicted with a lot of
talkers that are entirely too
slushy. And as an asylum for
this sort of crank, and, for that
matter, all sorts of cranks,
Washington stands second only
to Boston. Schemes are under
way to give almost everybody
connected with the recent war,
a sword, or a loving cup, or the
dyspepsia, or something. These
schemes are gotten up mainly
for short-haired women and
long-haired men, who are only
looking for a little notoriety.
Sometimes these peojjle manage
to scare up an original idea, but
generally they warm-over some
body's old one. Just now there
is a plan in effect to give Ad
miral Schley a home, and it is in
a fair way to be unsuccessful on
account of these very people.
