The recent report or Major Halm

for which they wcro originally built.
Changed conditions demnud entirely
The improvements of the harbor now
in progress, by enlarging facilities for
commerce may reasonably bo expected
to bring about n new era in the trade
both of Washington and Georgetown.
3Iajor lloins shows conclusively that the
bridges as they now stand aro not only
nu obstruction to navigation, hut ton
certain extent tin obstaclo to tho com
pletion of tho improvements proposed;
also, that thu Long bridge especially,
by reason of its faulty plan and loca
tion, Is becoming more nnd more liable
to damage and possible destruction by
There Is another Important considera
tion that ought not to bo overlooked.
Tho erection of n new bridge nt this
point or near by Is virtually a part of
tho claborato system of Improvements
which has been Inaugurated nnd upon
which considerable money has already
bconi. expended, with tho" Joint object
of beoutlty-ihg- tho city, enhancing its
sanitary ' Welfare and promoting tho
commercial valuo of tho harbor. Tho
time is but a few years distant when
tho reclaimed flats will bo converted
into a picturesque adornment of the
National Capital with approaches of a
similarly attractive character. Public
taste as well as public policy will there
fore rcquiro tho removal of tho un
sightly river crossing, which eveu now
defaces the landscape, and the substi
tution of a bridge moro in hooping with
the symmotiy of its surroundings nnd
nttho same time equal to tho constantly
increasing demands of travol and
Certainly, tlio new bridge which is
to span tho Potomac here, tho chief
connecting link between tho sections
in tho railway system of the Atlantic
States, should bo a massive and perma
nent structure nnd also of an archi
tectural beauty to correspond with tho
other magnificent improvements that,
as it were, lead up to this great thor
oughfare. It is not to be tho brldgo of
a decado or a gonoration, but for all
time, nnd the country which is watch
ing with, just prido tho progress of tho
works under charge of Major Halns,
by which such wonderful benefits nnd
transformations nro to bo wrought, will
complain of no oxpendlturo that may
be deemed essential to tho proper re
construction of both tho bridges named.
It is a matter in which the residents
of tho District of Columbia nro not
nlono concerned. It is of consequenco
to every ouo who visits tho District, to
nil who have to do with our transporta
tion and maritime intcrosts, to citizens
)f tho country generally who, feeling
n certain senso of proprietorship in tho
seat of government, naturally desire its
rapid and substantial advancement in
nil the attributes of a great Capital.
THU MEXICAN TKEATY.
"Tho manufacturers of this country
and all interested In tho extension of
trade with Mexico are looking with in-
tcrcst lorllio favorable action of Con
gress on the reciprocity treaty," says
tho Comcreio del Vallc of St. Louis,
Tho saino paper notes that tho Moxlcan
Commercial Exchange of that city will
ship several carloads of goods from St.
J.ouls to Mexico during tho coming
month. It also calls attention to the
fact that tho completion of tho Moxlcan
National Hallway, for which means
have been secured, will shorten tho dis
tance about COO mtlc3 between St. Louis
and tho Mexican capital, and make a
differenco of two days in tlmo over the
3:i Paso route.
The President in his messago ox
prcBics tho liopo that as tho reciprocity
convention, so important to ,tho com
mercial welfnro of tlio two adjoining
countries, has been constitutionally
confirmed by the trcaty-maklug brnnoh,
tho legislation needed to mako It cfTcc
llvelmny not long bo delayed,
Wc see no reason why it should bo,
but when tho quostion comes up again
in tho IIouso there will probably bo
found substantially tho samo opposi
tion that lias been so often experienced
beforo whenover legislation is attemptod
in tho direction of reciprocal trado with
neighboring countries. It is to bo hoped,
however, that no singlo local interest
in Louisiana, or elsewhere, will bo per
mitted to further blookado a moaiiirn
f nvught with 0 many advantages to tho
general wclfaro as tho Moxlcan treaty
unquestionably is. Majorities must rulo.
Tub Chicago JVmm says that John
Plncrty, who has a very good wit and
nn excellent capacity for talking sense
in nn nttrnctivo manner, has, Hko tho
caulocars over (ho Brooklyn brldgo,
"losv bis grip." Tho Neva says that
ho hits almost sunk out of sight. Mr.
-IPinerty certainly had a somewhat
urnmm i-iirecr iur 11 lime, jio organ
lRlho Irish National Convention in
Chicago and started n paper there In
advocacy of tho rnuso of Ireland,
which was very successful. Ho then
camo to Washington, but from.thc ditto
of his entering the House of ItgprcMiit
atlven thcro seems to have been nn ebb
thlo In his nffalrs. Ills course In Con
gross did not please two classes of ids
former adherents nnd they practically
retired him. It is said that his paper
has lost a good deal of ground among
tho Irlsh-Amerlcnn. Yet Plncrty Is a
young mnn, and will doubtless "ontch
on" ngnln in some sphere better suited
to his abilities.
Tiik most surprising change which
Newspaper Itow lias witnessed this
winter Is the transfer of the AVashlng
ton bureau and correspondence oT tlio
Chicago Tribune from tho stipei vision
of Mr. K. 11. Wight to that of two
members of tho Tribune') local forcu
from Chicago. Por twclvo or llftoe:i
years Mr. Wight has held a placo In
the very foremost rank of AVnshlngton
correspondents, nnd I1I9 dispatches
hnvc presented as complete nnd vnlit
ablo a digest of national affairs as has
gone out over tho wires. Tho change
is 11 subject of deep regret ainoim the
journalistic frnlornlty. Mr. Wight
continues tho service of tho Uoston
Journal and Now York Keening l'jit.
Tin: C.nr Is going to reinstate Prince
Alcxnndcr In his former rank of a
colonel In the Itusslnn nrmy, and tho
Czar's lcprcscntatlvc nt tho next meet
ing of the llnlkan conference will favor
the recognition of tho llulgnrian
lloumcllan alliance. This making up
to Prince Alexander by Itussla and tho
large purchases of arms by the latlor
does not tend to a peaceful outlook In
tho Mast. And tho most concerned
limn of all of thorn about these things
Is tho Sultan, who knows so well how
hungry tho Itusslnn Hear is for ter
ritorial accessions toward tho Iios
phorus. A koldieh of the Sixteenth Infantry
nt Port Mcintosh, Texas, has boon
tried and sentenced by a gcncr.il coutt
martial to bo dishonorably discharged
from tho service, to forfeit all tho pay
and allowances duo him nnd to two
ycais at hard labor at tho Port Leaven
worth military prison, for stealing three
chickens from a Mexican. This seems
to bo decidedly rough, as Judgo Snell
usually gives only fifteen days for a
littlo thing liko that. Yet some folks
wonder there should over be such a
thing ns desertion from tho army.
Mn. Lawiiekch IIaihihtt appeared
for tho first tlmo Inst evening in Victor
Hugo's "Hcrnnnl," at tlio Chestnut
SticctOpcrn-Hquso, Philadelphia, and
appears to havo achieved n decided suc
cess, though tho audience Is said to
havo been carried nway moro by tho
tragic force of tho play than by any
uncommonly tragic power of its action.
Wo doubt if Mr. Barrett succeeded In
"electrifying" tho house, ns ono of the
rcpoitshasit. It is seldom that his
scholnilypoitrayals llso to a magnetic
Sexatoh Payne vigorously denies
that ho lias made any attack upon the
President on account of certain Ohio
appointments. It was scarcely neces
sary to deny the Imputation. Tlio
Democrat who contemplates an attack
upon the Administration has not yet
materialized. A Dcmocrntle adminis
tration is about tho best thing a Demo
cratic politician can find to tio to. If
ho docn't find anchorage there he will
certainly go adrift.
Tin: Now Yoik Star favors tho
election of postmnstcrs by tho pooplc,
ns "In thorough harmony with Demo
cratic ideas." It certainly is. A great
many people and n great many news
papers on both sides of tho political
fence arc of the samo way of thinking.
Wo haven't much doubt but what the
First Assistant Postmaster-Gnuornl
would give the loudest of nil aniens to
tho proposed change.
Tin: poitrolts of Mr. Kvnrts which a
New York literary bureau is distrib
uting throughout the country nro
symptomntlc of a Presidential boom In
the Senator's behalf. His friends nocd
to bo cautioned, There nro very few
young nnd tendor booms that can stand
tho wear and tear of threo years' buffet
ing with 11 cold, unfeeling world.

resulted In tho re-election of President

Ex-Senntor Chaffee of Colorado told a

Sajs a Now York letter to tho Uoston
ftititrihty Gazette: Society Is very much
nroutcd over tho nppcaranco of a certain
well-known lady at her box at tho Metro
politan Opcrn-llouse tbo other night. Sho
woro her dress very low hi tho neck nnd
with simple straps across tbo shoulders,
and tho color of her waist material sho got
as near a flesh tint ns could bo fouud, so
that nt n littlo dlstanco it was lmposslblo to
tee any dividing lino. As sho sat In her
box tbo effect was startling and ovcry
opera-glass In tbo house was levelled at
her, whllo tbo men In the audience who
knew her hastened, between tho acts, nsn
comuitttco of investigation to sco what Jt
mus cho had on or had olT, Tho effect pro
duced by her dressing was oxactly what alio
wanted, and ) ct sho Is n 3 oung woman, n
marrlciMointtii, a mother and not nn Im
modest woman. If a man should accident
ally sco her with tho waist of her diess off,
though sho woro n hlgh-ncckcd undenvalst,
heuouul bo ready to faint; and yet sho
would sit In her box nt tho opera showing
las much of hor flesh ns sbo dured and with
tbo a owed Intention of looking as though
ELonsuudrc8Scd. I don't know what It
Is that makes women do tbeso things,
unless It Is tlio lovo for social notoriety.
They stem to want to do something to

According to Justice Miller, tho story

about a bar-room In somo of tbo mysteri

a tradition that In olden times tboro used
to bo u black bottlo hi the closet of tho

on our robes, but thcro has nevor beeu any

and Judgo Waito finds It out ho will mako

Tho latest crazo which has struck tho
