and litortr. Mr. Iodre eenW to be
of the select ones of the earth a le
rlple of the higher cult. It wa rather
expected of him that he would lend a
new propaganda, a departure from the
Mai watt and not too comeietitkm
methoda of the (Jtiay ami Heeds and
other Dugftld Dalgetly of his party.
Mr. lfenry Calmt Lotljre Is a disap
pointment. Stripped of his aristo
cratic trappings, his literary preten
tions and his patriotic veneer, he Is
found to be as rude and heavy-handed
n. vote-burglar as tbe worst of them,
lie differs from them only In this, that
lie dealgns the machinery by which the
Quays ami Davenports nod Dudleys vio
late the ballot-box. The relation he
l'tars to them Is simply Hint of ncces
ry before the fact.
We believe that In her pending con
troversy with tier managers, the tuneful
and shapely Marlon Manota will have
the sympathy of all thoughtful people.
Whether she can carry her point nnd
ifleetnally prevent the photographing
cf her extremely symmetrical tights U
,ulte another matter-, but that she lint
a right to protest against it ami that her
protest might to protect her, we think
rnott men will concede.
The view taken by the mannseinent
does not, In our opinion, uomcmi the
totality of force, lkcaute Miss Manola
)- under contract to play with De Wolf
Hopper' ComjMiiy dm lug. a given time
mil to appear upon tbe stage In light
whenever the character assigned her
i alls for that sort of costume, it does
not follow that her managers have tbe
right to trade upon photographs of her
In those costumes. To appear upon the
Mag behind the foot-Hglm amltWt the
Klamor of the scenery, the iliiwllng
lights, the bewildering accessories of
form awl sound and color. Is very dif
ferent from appearing In a photograph
set up In a show-window. In one case
you ate merely an Integer in an segre
gation, ose figure In a multitude, part
of a scene. Iu the other you are alone,
the scene Itself. It is not il Illicit It to
understand that a woman with some
delicacy of feeling might bring herself
to endure the appearance on the stage,
waking herself a constituent of the
crowd, and jet sbriuk from the glaring
Isolation of a photograph and from the
humiliation of having tbe fueutmiU of
her person treated ae merchandise.
We are very glad to tee that a jw.
llinlaary Injunction has been granted by
one of the New York courts In Mis
JIaacU's favor. The principle cannot
be too soon established that actresses, ia
signing contracts for twofeatoaal
ftrvke, retain some claims to their per
sonal dignity which tbe managers are
bound to respect

In KEri.r to vun New Vork Kir. wig
run, Messrs. Punk A Wagualls, the pub
lishing pirates wbo steal the nneycloiHedla
Hritaunlca for John Wana maker to sell,
have written a violent and abusive letter to
tbe editor, which the 1W published In Its
edition of Tuesday. After publishing the
letter, however, tbe editor has a few re
marks to wake on ItU own account, from
which the follovstug I an extract: "What
concerns us Is our reasons for singling you
and Wanatuakw out above other booh
pirates for special reprobatuni. These
reasons are, as regards Wanamaker, that
he is tb Cabinet oMcer of a great nation,
aad tbe owner ami conductor of a very
public Kiiitda) -school, ami an extremely
prominent ami much-advertised professor
of religion. A s regards )ou, that youre a
doctor of divinity and a minister of the
Ootpel, and tbe conductor of one or more
religious periodical. As regards you both,
that you bare attacked a large mass of
property with more publicity, ami have
therefore made jour offense more useful
for doctrine, for reproof, ami for lastrue
lion Iu rlghteousaess, than any of your
piratical predecessor. We have not edit
orieliy accused jouluteroM of lying, That
b been joua by some of our cor ratiKMid-
eiiU, but we admit that our aceusatloa of
theft lucludn or eotutote ling."
It mas axe caobvbii that tbe Reed-Lodge-tie
well BteeUon bill I ttneoasti
tutJonal.lB that M delegates tbe law-making
power to the Sfty er, as tbe ease may bo,
cot hundred eitluiu, without whose appll
catloB tbe Uw doe not go into force. TbU
peettien was taken tbw other day by ex
SeMtar Norwood of GwtgU, wbo insisted
that tbe Uw, even if It should pass tbe
ienate and be approved by the i'rWwit,
would not bear the teat of the court. It
puts tbe law-making power, be claims, Iu
tbe luuid of an liutaiUaiiiiAl miaofity of

SORRY FOR HARRISON.

FOR HIM AT GAPS MAT P6tf.
The t,w and the t'nttnre t)errtr
Itsmi the Unwritten CWe Here-
JFvem .Vw Trt sin (to-ttof),
To-Jnrrrnw the Jefaey cot will Ijc
th scene of an unpleasant frctcle.
The family of the IrtMeitt of the
United State, even to the jecowfl attd
third geweratlrm, will more Ifrto a -sMe
cottage which they have neither
purchased nor hired for the summer.
This establishment Is, In plain words,
an eleemosynary institution. Certain
gentlemen have subscribed to pay for
the land, the building, and the interior
furnishings, even to the brass wnna
makers In the billiard room. On the
part of some of the subscribers the gift
Is a matter of disinterested although
mistaken charity. Other contributors
to the fund, as there is reason to appre
hend, were Inspired by motives not
quite so unselfish.
There is probably no law in the He
vised Statutes under which General
Harrison could be punished for
THIS UteORACRFTTI, rttOCSRDIXfl.
Sections 5500 ami and 5501 come as near
to his case, perhaps, as any. These
sections contain the following pro
vision: Kvery officer of the United States, and
every person acting for or on behalf of the
t'nlted States, In any official capacity un
der or by virtue of the authority of any de
partment or office of the uovernment
thereof, who aeks, accepts, or receives any
money, or any contract, promise, under
taking, obligation, gratuity, or security for
the laj men t of money, or for tbe delivery
or conveyance of anything of value, with
Intent to have hi decision or action on any
question, matter, cause, or proceeding
which may at any time be pending, or
which may be by law brought before Iilm
In h! official capacity, or lu his place of
trust or profit, Influenced thereby
shall be punished by a line not more than
three times the amount ashed, accepted, or
received, and by Imprisonment not more
than three years.
Wo suppose that an attempt to pun
ish General Harrison under sections
5500 and 5501 of tho Ilevlsed Statutes
could be met successfully with a tech
nical defense on those grounds:
1. The nominal receiver of the gra
tuity Is not General Harrison, but Gen
eral Harrison's wife, and she Is notnn
olftccr of the United States. On the
other band, It might ba shown that this
Is a mere evasion, since General Harri
son is the head of the family which now
possesses Hit cottngc at Cape .May
Point, and it has been fitted up
WITH SfKClAl. KKrKIlBNCK TO 1114 OC
The billiard tabic In the great billiard
room stul the brass wanamnkers tlt.it
adorn that apartment were certainly
not designed for the use of Mrs Harri
son or of llaby ilelvee.
2. Tho cottago Is not conveyed with
Inttrttohavo General Hanison's de
cision or action Influenced In any
qucttlun which may come before him
In hlsotilclal cnpaclty. If that defense
were raised, it might be exceedingly
dllBcuItto prove the contrarv. Whera
disinterested motives are loudly pro
claimed, and, perhaps, where tho con
sideration oxpected by the donor Is a
matter of the Indellnlto future, a con
viction would bo very bard to procure.
And yot, at the samo time, nobody can
doubt that every subscriber to the
HAltlSON M'KSK rtlKSIl-AIH FUND,'
with the possible exception of Mr.
George Washington Child and Mr.
Anthony Joseph Drexul, expects to ob
tain sooner nr later, through the In
fluence of General Harrison's oltlclal
station, a return In some shape for his
rtich a lino of defense might be sutll
cient to save Genetal Harrison from a
fine of three times the value of the Cape
Slay Toint cottage, and likewise fr.un
Imprisonment for tbeprescrlbed term of
not more than three years. We do not
think the President could be convicted
under the statute quoted above, or under
any other statute. We have no idea
that he will ever be prosecuted In the
United States courts. He U on the safe
side of the law concerning bribery.
Nevertheless there Is another and un
written law which prohibits Presidents
while In office from accepting gratuities
oj any sort, no matter now ingeniously
they may be disguised. It Is based on
well defined principles of public morals,
as well as on considerations of personal
self-respect, which no sensitive intelli
gence can fall to recognUe. Most of
the men who have preceded General
Harrison In the olHce of President have
understood this unwritten law of honor,
and have scrupulously obeyed It,
Whenever the law has been violated bv
a President in office, that President lia's
disgraced himself and bis office, ami the
cation which eleeted him.
We are sorry for Heejamln Harrison!

AS OLD ROW OF TREES.
Sycamore That Have Ilecn Rrmttlntr
WgllifnKMnlnn far to Venrs.
A CatTrc reporter, white In cmireWa
tloti mst etetting with a couple of citi
zens of the District, had hh attention
directed to a row of sycamore trees on
the east side of Eleventh street, between
G sod II northwest, whose exact sire
and symmetrical shape has often been
commented upon by persons passing
along that thorotighfare.
Those trees, several years ago," said
one of the gentlemen, "were supposed
to be like the Biblical rmrren fig tree
no good. Instead, however, of cutting
Ihcm down, men were sent to carefully
trim them, and after considerable
watching they seemed to take an en
tirely new growth, ami to day there is
not a mote beautiful row of trees In the
Pointing to the largest of the trees
near H street, the other gentremau said-
'That tree has a history. It stood for
years In front of an ohl frame house
rtcmplfd by a German, who took a
great Interest In the tree. He had no
hydrant In Ills yard ami always when
golnst for water, If there was anv left
over In the bucket from a previous visit
to the pump, he would throw It on that
tree. He also frequently whitewashed
It, and that Is why It Is so much larger
than tbe others.
"Oh, yes, I have seen trees almost In
the centre of some of the sidewalks In
Washington." replied the reporter to a
question ashed him.
"The reason of that Is," said the
older cltlren, "the curb line of the pave
ment was just about there forty yean
ago. Then trees were standing in the
middle of Pennsylvania avenue.
AVflshlngton can beat the world for
trees, and 7,000 more of them will be
planted upon the newly extended
streets of tho city."

G utre of the United Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners, 12a North Ninth
street, last evening, was Presldont Sam
uol Gompers of the American Federa
tion of Labor. Ho came ovor from New
York to confer with Secretary McGtilre
upon matters of Importance to the Fed
eistJon. "All over tho country," ho said, "tho
prospects of success are favorable and
our gain havu been Immense. In Mom.
phis, Tenn., the plasterers and lathers
organized In April and In May they got
their eight-hour day, thus winning tho
llrst victory In tho btate.
"In regard to the charge that tho as
sumblles arc leaving tho Fodoratlou I
can say that I know of no organization
which has done so or intends to do so,
but I know of Instances where the
If nights of Labor assemblies hove with
drawn from their order and have be
come connected with the Federation.
"In a period of seven weeks and four
days the carpenters alone have char
tered ninety-six new local assemblies,
and during the past three months the
cigar-makers have organised thirty new
assemblies, the Amalgamated Associa
tion of Iron and Steel Workers seventy
and the Iron Moulders twenty-two. In
New York the cigar-makers had pre
vious to May 1 only 1,500 members;
now they have 7.000. In Louisville the
carpenters have just won eight hours a
day, and In regard to their membership
thty had previous to May 1 only forty
five and now there are 1,500 on the
rolls. I am agreeably surprised at the
action of the men In Philadelphia. They
are steadfast In their determination to
win, and 1 do not doubt that victory
will crown their efforts,"

JUDGES REVERSING EACH OTHER.
Decisions In lowft For ami AcalMt
Dbs Morass, Iowa, June 18. The
Iowa ermtts are reversing one another's
" original packattc ' ' decisions very
rapWlr. Last week two district judges
it nderetl contrary dct isions on holding
that an original package Is an unbroken
case, jnsl as It Is received from the con
signor; the other that any sub division
of a case properly sealed, with contents
intact, would fulfill the requirements of
the law. Before the now famous orig
inal package decision was rendered by
the United States Supreme Conrt the
Iowa Supreme Court had defined an
original package, flask, bottle, keg or
barrel, anything in which the goods
were put without regard to the manner
of their shipment.
Yestertlsv Judge Ravanagh nf the
Polk County District Court, In the case
of the State vs. Chambers, overruled
this Supreme Conrt decision. Cham
hers imported two cases, one containing
a dozen bottles, the other a keg filled
with liquor. Chambers admitted he
had drawn off the liquor from the keg
Into quart bottles. In this condition
the liquor was selred, ami Judge ltav
anagh has ordered the whole outfltcon-demned.
A MAYOR BRUTALLY BEATEN.-
Ills Mnrshnt Cluhs Itlm Into Insensi
bility In the .Street.
Jacxsoxvii,t.e, Fr..., June IS.
About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Mayor Patrick McQuaid was called out
Into the street by City Marshall Steve
Wlggln, with whom he had an engage
ment. After proceeding a short dis
tance McQuaid remonstrated with Wlg
gln for talking to him Impertinently,
whereupon the lattor brutally assaulted
tho Mayor with his club and rode nwny,
leavine his victim sonseless on the
Wlgelns has been charged with ne
glect of duty and dishonesty, and would
probably lmvo been dlschnred by the
City Council at Its next meeting. He
fancied that McQuaid was at the bottom
of this and proceeded to "do him up."
He t ode ns far as McGirt's Creek,
where ho Is supposed to have taken a
south bound train. Telegrams have
been sent In nil directions, nnd It will
be Impossible to ecnpo nrrest. There
Is great excitement here and some
McQuntd's physicians say that he
will probably recover. Ills skull is not
fractured, but concussion of the brain
Is feared. McQuaid was In clinrgo of
the Sanitary Association hore In 1883
and Is well-known ns ono of the heroes
of the epidemic.
