tnl observation to that effect will certainly
not be out of place.
It is now only eight weeks since tho
concern passed into tho hands of its new
management, nnil yet in thee short two
months it has made far greater progress
toward success than during any period of
its past history; ond in spile of tho dull
hcaeon, now fairly upon us a scaon
which tries tlic strength of tho oldct and
htrongc.it of newspapers is still pushing
ahead nt 11 rapid and lively gait.
It is not an easy task to build up a jour
nal which has once got under tlic weather,
but wo arc doing just that thing and, to a
degree, far beyond our original calcula
tions. Tho sales of Tin: dime have more
than doubled tlic lat six weeks, and our
advertising has considerably more than
held its own. Tlic people (ire ovcry day
becoming better acquainted with the now
paper and the more they read It the better
they like it. They say it lias all tho ele
ments of a people's newspaper. It is not
run in a political rut, nor mixed up in
political jobs, nor tied up to a political
faction, nor printed in the interest of any
j-cheme or syndicate, nor committed to
anybody's personal fortunes outside of Irs
owners', but devoted to the general good
of the community, and to the clean and
wholesome entertainment of its readers.
It is not in all respects wlint we intend
it shall be, but we havo conic to stay and
timo will demonstrate the sincerity of our
promises and our ability to keep them.
There is a wide Held open here for another
evening paper and we have pre-empted it
with the distinct foreknowledge that the
investment Is bound to win.

TIIU MEXICAN MISSION.
Minister Jackson was received by the

years since General Jackson paid his first
visit to that country.
lie was then upon an entirely diU'orciit
mission, bearing stccl-pnlnted credentials
and sulphuric instructions.
Ho now goes upon an errand of peace
and fratcrnltv, with messages of good-will
mill tho universal doslio of his Govern
ment and his countrymen that the best
possible terms ol'intcrcourso be instituted
between tho Itcnublii's. It is for the in

great objects of his mission, and unless

P.VKnv morning, shortly after 8 o'clock,
ajlttlo group of pcoplo gather on tho
stairway nt the west front of tho Capitol,
gazing at the AVashlngton Monument.
For a few moments the sun's rays strike
the aluminum tip of tho shaft and nmko
it sparkle nnd radiate, sometimes llko n
silver star and sometimes like a brilliant
electric light. The beautiful and dazzling
brightness soon disappears. From tho
foot or tho Capitol grounds, opposite tlic
tvrstem entrance to tho Ilotanlcal Garden,
even n liner view is obtained. Tho pic
turesque avenues of trees form n beautiful
vlstn through which tho Monument can
bo seen with its metallic cap shining with
nu clfulgcncc and at an altitude that
would ovcrcoino llartholdl'H Statue of
Liberty Enlightening tho World with
envy nnd jealousy.
A Camjjkt ofllccr Is reported to have
sold recently that public men arc, as a
rule, of no assistance to the President, and
that because of this fact there Is so much
delay in making appointments. Out of
it grows the dllllculty of llndiugout tho
best men. And thu Cabinet olllcer makes
one more protest against the habit of souio
public men of Indiscriminately leconi
mending n score or so of people for the
snmo place. There Is no doubt a great
deal of truth in all this. Hut while tho
President niny not bo nllbrdcd much as
sistance by public men in making changes,
It seems to bo equally true that ho Is not
allbrdlng any undue amount of assistance
to public men in making the changes
which the latter particularly desire.
A Wabhimitok correspondent of thu
Philadelphia J'rcss says that "the Presi
dent is afraid tlic Senate will reject many
of his nominations, and he wishes, before
taking hold of tho big olllces, to learn how
the continuing power will Interpret 'oll'on
slvc paitisauship' os good rnuo for re
movals." AVe tin not know whether tho
President is "afraid" or not, but we do
know what the Senate caucus thought
about this subject last March, and if Sen
ators are still of the same opinion, there Is
lensou for tho appichcnsion of trouble.

A REMARKABLE STORY.
The Letter Unit Aocniiipiinli'd u
hcleiico I'liml Contribution.
A Washington special to the Doston
lfmihl states that on Saturday tho cor
respondent of that paper was shown at
tho Treasury Department a letter scut in
with a large sum of money for the con
science fund, which told the following re
markable story: Tho writer was a tele
graph operator who, in ISOtt, was n pas
senger in the steamship Henry Clinunccy,
from New York for San Francisco. Dur
ing the voyage a friendship sprang up be
tween him and n fellow passenger, who
called himself Charles Edmund Hastings.
On reaching his destination tho operator
went to work for the California Stnte Tele
graph Company. On tho first day of ser
vice ho received a telegram from tho chief
inspector of the Postolllee Department
warning tho authorities to look out for
ono Charles Emmons, who, while em
ployed nt the Xew York postolllee, had
The description given convinced the
operator that Emmons and Hastings were
identical, and on tho impulse of tho
moment ho slipped tho telegram in his
pocket and afterward gave it to lliiatings,
who confessed and promised reform if his
secret was kept. A few months later ho
died In Xevndti city. Tho letter ends as
follows: "A few years ago, by tho death
of a relation, I came into possession of
what, to a man of my modest desires, Is an
ample fortune. 1 desire, therefore, to make
restitution to the Government of Mr. Em
mons peculations in which I considered
myself an indiiect accomplice. Tho sum
inclosed is the amount of principal and
interest to date." '

"Now, see here," said lloyd Winchester,
tho new Minister to Switzerland, to tho
Louisville correspondent of tho World, "I
have no desire to jiose ns the great na
tional nokcr ulnvcr of this countrv. The
liapcrs have gone entirely too far in mak
ing common talk of my prowess at tho
card tabic. I am not a great player. I
jilay n modest llttlo game. Every gentle
man in Kentucky plays the game nnd so
do I. Hut 1 do not sit down with every
body. I pluy only with friends, among
gentlemen, nnd then only In a modest
way. I cannot sco why I should bo sin
gled out as America's national player."
It was explained that tho appointment
of Minister yehenck, who introduced tho
game into England, the appointment hist
month of AVaricu (licen of Kentucky, u
skillful player, to the richest consulate in
Japan, and his own appointment, argued
that there was sonio subtle connection be
tween diplomatic business nnd the gnmo
"I suppose," ho said rcllciAlvely, pull
ing his lint back to its normal position,
"1 suppose they believe that a man who
plays tinker well can do anything. In tho

woik was tor private circulation only, but
as a representative of this country ho
should not hove published It. The rules
were too good. As for myself, my health
has been bad, and I have not played for a
long time, so it is singular that the Now

have done. They liavo swollen tho mat
