Tho American nulor wants protection.
Not ngalnst light houses, walking homo
on railroad tics in bail weather, dead
cats, cabbage stalks, bad eggs and other
eccentricities incidental to tho profes
sion, but anatnst tho pauper players of
Europe who como to this country and
work for prices that won't pay for tho
paint on a player's fuco.
They proposo to ask Congress to turn
tho Imported contrnO labor hoso on vlstt
iug actors and wash ihcm from tho face
of tho stage. They claim that while
an American actor gets J40 a week for
twenty-six weeks, the English actor
only gets $10 a week and this isworso
than Chinese cheap labor.
Mary Anderson, "Ourilary," is charged
with having an entire company, suncs
nnd all, of these "Chinamen," and the
Klralfys ate charged with importing
ballet girls becauso they are cheap, while
our own crop of ballet girls aro prettier,
and aro at least twenty-fivo years younger
than their foreign competitors. Tho
same may bo said and is said of "Monte
Cristo. jr.," an English importation now
demoralizing tho business in New York.
They, however, aro willing to cxcludo
fiMt-cln'3 pcoplo like Irving, Coquel in,
I'atti and the others of that class.
W'a oxtend our leading support to our
friends tho actors of nallvo production,
nnd wo go further nnd soy, make the
high-priced people dlvldo profits with
American or drop their tickets to reason
ublo flguro1,. l'rotcction from foreigners
Is needed before and behind tho foot

do to everybody, and let us charge ad
mittance as thoy do. America for Amer
icans, all others cash.

he is the son of his father.
The ArroisTMEST of Leon 0. Bailey
of Indianapolis as United States District
Attorney for Indiana by tho President,
can scarcely bo called a compliment from
tho President to tho President-elect. It
was Mr. Bailey who made, probably, tho
most sensational speech against Mr.
Harrison during tho campaign; It was,
at least, tho most bitter and uncalled for.
It was in this speech ho charged Mr.
Harrison with a desire to mako tho
streets of Indianapolis run red with tho
blood of workingmon. It was buncomb,
of course, and spoken for effect, but the
'effect Is so bad that the United' States
Senate should teach Mr. Bailey a lesson
in muzzling his Impetuous mouth by to- The ladles ot tho Cabinet, with the, execp

Tho Senate owes this much to Mr. Ilarri
son, as a man and n good citizen, regard
less of any political affiliations which
.exist between him and tho Senate uia-
jority. Turn Mr. Bailey down and givo
him at least four years and seventy-four
'days for reflection.
Senator Lacour of Franco said In n
speech yesterday that France's greatest
danger lay in lior evident desiro to pro
strato hcr&elf at tho feet of Boulan2er.
Boulanger should now proceed to go

ONE niZZIiR SOLVED.
All Tainted Clock I'olnt to Eigh
teen Minutes After l.lgut.
From the Stw York Sun.
An observing man recently sent a letter
to this ofllco asking why it was thai
overy clock and watchmakor who slung
an imitation clock or watch outsldo his
shop as a sign had tho hands painted on
the faco at exactly S:1S o'clock. This
was n poser to every clock-sollor a re
porter asked. Tho signs came to tkctn
that way they said. Tho majority of
them had never noticed tho coincidence.
If nsked where they got their signs
naintcd tho rcnlv was that thov loft tho
order with their wholcsalo dealer nnd
tho sign camo along. That was all thoy
knew about it.
Inquiries among tho wholesalers in
Murray street and Maiden Lano devel
oped the curious fact that thcro Is no
comnctltlon in the tradoof na titlue clock
signs. This stato of nffnlrs Is brought
about by tho wholcsnlo clock and watch
dealers themselves, who got used to pat
ronizing three dealers many years ngo,
nnd never got cuouch out of tho habit to
give any other pointer tho ghost of n
show to succeed with an opposition shop.
"But Father Washburn," said ono
wholcsalo dealer, "is father of them all,
and of emblematic signs as well. Ho
was tho first pointer to mako n sign om
blcmatlc of any business, and ho started
in way back in '63. Why, tho big con
cerns that mako metal signs don't bother
him at all. IIo gave his Ideas to tho
wholo world to copy and the world cot
rich. Tho friends no mado back In tho
50's have stuck to him evor since, and
one branch of tho business has stuck bo
closo that no competitor In other
branches of sign work over, thinks of
getting a clock or watch sign to make,
nnd, if by chnnco ho did, ho'd probably
bo so scared ho'd send tho customer to
Mr. Washburn was painting n clock on
a big star when tho reporter called. Ho
was an old man with a happy face nnd a
white beard. There were clock signs
mapped out, half done, and finished,
bnugine all around, and overy blcs3cd
ono of them had the hands pointed at
b:ib o ClOCK.
"The reason all tbo dummy-clock
hands point to that hour," said Mr.
Washburn, "is becauso I paint them all,
and 1 always point that hour. When I
painted the tlrst emblematical sign over
painted as a matter of business, oack In
C3, It was a clock. I don't know how
I put tho hands. All I rcmembor about
it is that It was for P. T. Barnum's old
concern on Cortlandt street, tho Jerome
Clock company, sinco gono up tho snout.
"I painted tho hands any way I chose,
up, down, crosswise, or together, as my
mood dictated, from that tirao up to
April 14. 1S03. That night tho news was
flashed into tho city that Lincoln had
been shot in Ford's Theatre I was
working on a sign for Jowcler Adams,
who used to keep on Broadway, opposite
Stewmt's, nt the tirao. I wns making n
great clock to hang outside. Adams
came running In while I was at work,
lie was a strong Lincoln man. Ho said:
" 'Point thoso hands at tho hour Lin
coln was shot that tho deed may novcr
"'I painted tho hands, therefore, at
8:18. Tho Idea struck mo forcibly, and
when I came to look at the effect I found
it was tho most convenient arrangement,
since it displayed both tho hands well
and left tho top half of tho clock free to
paint In tho namo of tho clock-seller if
desired. So I threw all my stencils away
and mado new ones for that hour. I
have never varied from the system since,
and that's tho reason all tho clock signs
point os thoy do. The Chicago and Cin
cinnati pooplo I llnd are doing the same
thing. Thoy don't know tho story, but
they probably were won to my plan by
tbo capability of that particular arrange
ment for artistic display in painting."
