culls for no special icmonslnuico fiom
tftiens of tho District. The discussion
of the public Iinpiovomcnts named in
connection tItli tho growth of tho city
liiouclit out rcmoiks tlmt wore In evciy
way friendly to tho objects, proposed.
The Hock Creek Zoological I'aik was
especially lemovcd from hostile re
mark, air. JlcComas claimed that It
was absurd to assort that this appro
piinlion was a Dlstiicl matter. 31 r.
liutterworth held that it was a na
tional affair. Mr. Atkinson claimed
that one-half of tho appropiiatlon
lind been aheady granted by the Ils
tilct under the" debt generally as
sumed, which amounts to i?10,000,000,
which is a debt larger to the assessed
a aluc of the propel ty than that of nny
other city in the United States. Ho
held that taxes wcio high enough intho
Distiict, and that the l'nrlc Is not for
the people of tho Distiict but tor the
whole nation. Mr Cbnndler took the
ground that, if the V til ted States Gov
tinment could not enter upon tho enter
piiso the bill should be killed at once.
There will bo no need to kill tho bill.
It will pass botli houses successfully,

stem ludicrous to inquire who opposed
It. The United States cannot alfonl to

The lnisundetslntiding between John
jr, rieming of the Knowillu Sentinel
and .Tames II. Phelon, ti Tennessee Con
gressman, Is likely to bo wiped out with
blood, or with tho satiilcal imitation of
the ancient duello, which Is becoming
popular in these halcyon days. As cus
toms go, no ono wounds bis enemy any
more. IIo wounds his friend instead.
These encmntciS;4f they proceed no
fuithcr even than newspaper vaporing,
nic n discrace to all who are concerned.
Especially mo they discreditable to
newspaper men, who, fioni numberless
Inttances of folly, may be expected to
draw wise Inferences.
Yet Mr. Phelan is tho owner of the
Memphis Aialanche and Colonel Flem
ing has, for a considciable peiiod, been
connected with tho Sentinel. AVhat of

Tho bone of contention, so to speak,
19 a history of Tennessee, written for
school purposes, by Mr. Phelan. Tho
hook has been very severely criticized,
and Mr. Phelan has retoited on his
pciscculort. in kind, lie has retaliated
ly Buying that "tho half-witted editor
of the Sentinel docs not know tho dif
ference betvveen a fact and an opinion."
Altogether, tho case seems to call for
a lccouise to the code of honor. It is
a case of coffee and pistols for two.
tfnly tho charges in those plstoU should

should be unsangulnous.
Tub Ciutic has been In advance of
all its contcmporailcs In advocacy of
the removal of the Long Bridge as It
now Is, and its i construction as it
ought to be. The engineers of the
Government confirm the opinion which

fattoiy mede. When the Long Bridge
has been raised, ns has been suggested,

Harrison's Cabinet nio not encouraging.
There never has been a period in tho
history of the countiy In which more
tragic events crowded Into tho same
space of time serve to show the respon
slvenessof the people to tho needs of
the occasion. It would doubtless be a
crowning success If Mr. Harrison and
his Cabinet came into tiuo touch with
the people. And the White Houso
Tjik decision ok Chief Justice
311ngham In regard to witnesses testify
ing in liquor cases is worthy of tho muu
and of the court. There has been too
much latitude In legnrd to such cases.
The universality which embraces the
premises forbids the sale of liquor
under suspicious clicumstauccs. The
state must see to It that no cloud re-ti
upon tho horion of Its administration
of departmental Justice.

Capital, the Daniel amendment pio

G ov ernnicnt to Chlcogo, to join In the
dedication of the exposition buildings
As a whole, tho amendment Is calcu
lated, It must bo ndmllted, to stimulate
Inlcrtsl in tho fair at homo and abioad,
nnd thus to piomole its success.
Baltimore American: Tho amend
incut which Senator Daniel has offered
to tho World's Fnir bill Is an exceed
ingly good ono. In a way that Is both
feasible and attractive, ft gets around
tho Idea of holding an 180:) expolllon
In 1WI.1 and observes the gicat quadto
centennial nt the proper date. It docs
this by two great events which
shall bo preliminary rind In
troductory to tho Chicago enterprise.
By making both events a part of tho
Columbus Celebration it ados breadth
nnd dignity to tho Exposition and pio
poses a plan that will Intensify tho in
iciest of tho world In tho Fair as could
be done in no oilier way,
It will blud the East and the Wcstln
measureless enthusiasm for the great
fair, and glvo it a boom throughout the
whole world. Senator Daniel's
amendment should be passed unani
2?ew York 11 "oi W: Senator Daniel of
Vliginia has offeied an amendment to
tho Fair bill which has very mnch
merit in it. Ho proposes that tho coun
try shall rccognlo tho year ISO 3 as ono
big with moaning to tho Hemisphere.
Ills amendment provides for a real
International celebration nt Wash
ington In October, 1S02, which
shall includo tho unveiling
of n monument to Columbus nt
tho Capital. The ceiemonyls to be
preceded by a grand naval leview in
tho harbor of New York and at Hamp
ton Roads. r '
Senator Daniel's amendment should
Tie adopted. There Is no doubt that
Now York's pait in this programme
will bo well performed.
JVeie Yorl Herald: Tho gicat fair will
not bo opened In Chicago until 1893,
and wo think well of the proposition,
added by Senator Daniel to the Fair
bill, that in October, 102, the
actual dato of tho discovery
of America shall bo celebrated
by a grand naval leview. to bo
held lhstin the bay of New York and
and later at Hampton Roads. In this
review, according to tho plan brought
foiwnrd, tho Piesident is lobe asked to
invito the great powcis of Europe and
the republics south or us to let detach
ments of their fleets take pait.
It is an admirable scheme, nnd we
hope Congress will authorize It as au
impoi taut and most intciestlng part of
the commemoration of an event in
which Kuiope bos even a gicater his
toric Intel est than America.
That there should be in 1802 same
commemoration of the great event of
the discovoiy of America" in Washing
ton, the Capital of the United Stales,
setms to us not only proper but neces
sary. Such a commemoiatlon will
bo had, we suppose, In every
one ol our sister lcpubllcs, and
what Is proposed by Senatoi Daniel, tho
un veiling of a statue of Columbus and
the opening of a creat memorial hall,
strikes us as both fit and modest. Wo
tiust Congress In passing the Chicago
Fair bill will adopt, also, this plan cou
talncd in tho amendment of Senator
rianxisE dkess in jal'an.
Yum Yiim'R Tnllpt from tlio Hath
Having been soaped and dried, tho
Japanese girl takes a long strip of cot
ton or silk, according to her tasto and
condition, tho strip being about eighteen
Inches wide aud three yards long.
Holding tho upper corner of one end of
tho cloth just over tho left hip, sho
winds the strip tightly around the loins
and hips, fastening It by tucking tho
end corner in tho belt so made. This
might be called tho Japanese corset,
except that, instead of compressing tho
waist, it squeezes tho lower abdominal
portions and upper hip. When prop
cily put on It makes an al
tno'st rigid bandage, and it 13
this which gives that peculiar little
shuttle and swing to tho original Yum
Yum's wnlk, the legs being really only
movable from tho knoo down. Most
writers have ascribed this waddle to the"
wearing of high wooden clogs, but this
Is a mistake- Tho men wear clogs,
but they walk as frcoly as an Indian.
The kilt, so to speak, having been
adjusted, tho Japaneso girl then slips
on a little loose, sleeveless jacket again
cttner oi cotton or siik wmcii comes
down to the loin clolli, and over that a
blouse or short kimono; then another a
llttlo longer, two or three ot these, then
the kimono, nnd then the obi or
bow. All theso undergarments
nnd tho kimono itself are crossed
In fiont and arc open at tho neck.
Each is decorated at the neck with a
strip of colored crape, and tho whole Is
so arranged that these strips show one
beneath the other. Sometimes a hollo
will show n half docn or moro of theso
different colored strips, the effect being
quite lalnbowlsh. If tho weather Is
warm the inner garments are dispensed
with and the parti colored silks aio
sewed to tho inner side of the kimono In
a number of plaits.
Stockings tho Japanese woman does
not wear, except those vvho have
adopted tho Euiopcau fashions, whllo
tho shoo is cither n sandal or a clog. No
matter what the form of the sandal or
clog, tho method of attachment is al
ways tho same a soft loop into which
the foot Is thrust, with n thong to pass
between tho grent too and tho others.
The sandal (znri) Is nearly always mado
with a stiaw solo and quilted top, and
Is used for Indoor wear, whllo the cloir
(gitu) Is of wood. Their height Is reg
ulated by tho "tony" aspirations of tho
wearer, "just as Fiench heels of exces
sive height aie woin by our own fashion
The kimonos seen In this country
just clear tho ground, and this Is tho
ovcry-day cut of the garment. When
tho Japanese young lady wishes to put
on stylo, however, sho lengthens hor
kimono and adds to its breadth In tho
lower portions so that it shall spread
out on tho floor as sho stands. This
Is her tiain, but must stand all
arouud her feet In boll-shape.
Tho nlco management of this tiain Is
a great achievement, and takes much
practlco to bring about tho ti uo Japanese
angles and stillness. In tho old days
tho kimonos woin by tho couit ladles
wero something extraordinary in their
voluinlnousncss, They vveio not only
long behind, but they were also long
befoio, and tho poor creatine stumbling
along In ono of these looked as though
sho wero shulllltig about on her knees.
It Is In her obi, or sash, however,
that tho Japaneso hollo takes her gicat
cst pride. Oidinnrlly it is tied behind
In a bow about a foot square at tho
buck, resembling a cartiidgo box in,
shape. But there tiro times when this
modest little bow will not sulllce, and
there uro ladles vvho go to excesses In
the slo of tho obi. It is mado out ot
black silk, folded to be fully a yard
wide, nnd It Is tied in a bow, whoso ends
extend fully three feet across. More
over, It Is worn in f i out and -n llttlo to
