A Claim Against Brazil. J. C.
Wright has, through his attorney, C. C.
Crcecy, filed a claim at tho Stato Depart
ment for $100,000 damages from tho Brazil
ian Government, for cruel and barbarous
treatment, unjust Imprisonment, etc., at
tho hands of Brazilian officials. Wright
went to Brazil in 1877 to arcept employ

Tho Coast Survey Librarian. Tho re
cent appolntmont ot Mr. Artemm Martin
of F,rIo, Pa., as libraiiauof tho Coast and
Geodetic Survey, Is suggestive of n much
needed reform. Hitherto tho library has

of tho most valuablo books havo been lost,
and many moro carried oft and novcr prop
erly accounted for. Mr. Martin Is uot only
a lover of books, but ono of tho best mathe
maticians In this country, aud Just tho por
son to put In chaigo of tho library of n
mathematical bureau llko tho Coast Sur
vey. 'I lila appointment Is a graceful recog

Becictaryof tho Treisury has also at tho

with tha library anil thus saves tha silary

below 11 number of expressions 011 tho
question which doubtless Indicates tho gen

Mr. Anthony II) do was at a loss as to
what suggestion ho could mako that would
help along a niovcnientth.it ought so cer
tainly to bo crowned with success. Ho wa3
Inclined to think, however, that thcro
ought lo bo a way to get lho rules ot tho
Houso ndvantagcously amended through
membcis of both Houses vvhonio person
ally Interested In real cslnto hero In Wash
ington. "Tho number of the so has been
greatly Increased recently," said he, "and
somo of tho number ought to bo iulluontlal
with their associates lu Congress. Then,
too, a good innuy ex-Members havo be
como holders of real estate hole, and they
will naturally do nil thoy can to help tho
thing along. Hstilkesmo that this Is tho
channel through which tho end can bo
reached, and I sincerely hopo tho movement
will bo successful."
F.iiclnccr Commissioner L)decker thinks
that thcro should baa dav on which the
business of tho District should bo specially
considered, ns It has alwa)s worked to tho
advantage of tho Dlstilct, und It Is tha de
sire of lho Commlsloners and friends of tho
District that tho District should bo heard.
Commissioner Fdmouds .Is also In favor
of a day In tho House. Ho siys that tho
District Is subject to tho legislation ot Con
gress, and should bo repiecntcd thcro In
somo manner, and It Is an Injustlco to do
prlv our of th it right.
DWilct ConmiMoner Webb said ho hid
not )ot given tbu subject much serious
thought, but did not sco how a day lu tho
Houso could result otherwlo Hum to tho
ndvantngoof tho District.
Said Moor John T, Amies, ical cstato
agent: "'llicio certainly ought to bo somo
changes In the rules by which tho District
could iccelvo 111010 attention fiom tho
House. F.en tho two Mon

Tho only wn) to bilng about n proper nt

District is by agitation.''
Mr. 11. II. Warner said ho wns glad to bo
cuiollcd among thoso who recognise tho
necessity of something being douo to secure
11 "District day" In tlio House this winter.
"Tlmo was," said Mr. Warner, "wheu out
siders used to say it was all nonscuso to set
opart a day for tho special consideration ot

lho piescut beauty and assured futuro of

tend to havo a Dlstilct ehy now ." said he,
"and It has been llxcd by ono of their rules,

Health Office! Smith Tow nshend said ho
was In favor of a Dlstilct day hi tho Houc.
"'lho great than back has been," Bald lie,
"lint tho District Is shut out by other busi
ness, oven when they aro entitled ton day."
"As wo depend on Congiessforour legis
lation, I considered It highly Importniitthat
the Commissioners should bo heard In tho
Houso Committee," said Collcetoi of Taxes
Cook. "It would bo grcatl) to tbo advau
tago of tho District."
Mr. Nathaniel Wilson said: "It Is a good
idea. It worked well befoio and probably
will bo tho best arrangement that could bo
Said Mr. Robert Christ): "Yes; thero
should be a Dlstilct day. It was tried last
vear without one, tbo Commissioners claim
ing that moro could bo gotten out ot Con

is all w rong. Wo should havo It,"
Colonel Fuoeh Touch's Idea Is "to hmo
a joint committee 011 tho District, and w itli
that It will bo found tuat tho District gets
along much hotter."
Mr. Joseph C, Wlllaid, 0110 of tho old
residents of Washington and among tho
largest property owners, said this moiulng
to a Ciiitio representative, who called upon
him, that ho always rend with Intel est
over) thing published regarding tho best
Interests ot tho District. Ho mentioned a
number ot well-known gentlemen whom ho
pronounced 111010 capable of Intelligently
discussing tho matters being brought up.
Howover, ho admitted that ho was lu favor

all tho property owucrs ullko.
Mr. John . Thompson Mid tlntthoio
wns nothing so well deserving tbo attention
of tho well-wishers of tbo Dlstilct of Colum

sild he, "Is tho largest city south otlliltl
