THE KATIOML TRIBUTE: WASHffifllM, ft 0., THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1896.

Secretary Olucy has instructed Minister Trj

Spanish Government relative to tho recent

It will be impossible for tho merchants to
get this property out of Cuba within the
prescribed time, and Minister Taylor has
been instructed to make such representations
to Spain as will secure amide time in which
to secure this property. It is believed that
the tone of ilr. Oluey'B note will accomplish
JJokdav, May IS. It is stated that charges
have been preferred against United States
Minister Terrell, who was unexpectedly
called to Washington last week at the Presi
i.i nl's direction. Tbo statements made are to
tho effect that boards of Americau missions
linving representatives in Turkey have filed
charges with the President alleging that Mr.
Terroil was derelict in his duty to Americau
citizens in the Ottoman Empire, and that be
was not a proper representative of this couu
try at Constantinople. A committee came
down from New York for tho purpose of pre
senting tho charges to tho President. It is
BBid that this committee, which consisted of
a numlicr of prominent New Yorkers, bad an
extended interview with the President, and
it was for tbo purpose of having Mr. Tcrrill
at this meeting that ho was called to Wash
ington from his Texas home.
Tli.suay, May ID. The President vetoed tbo
oill granting a pension to Caroline D. Mow
att. It appears from tho President's mossugo
that sho was married in 1858 to Alfred B.
Soule, who served as a Major of a Maine rcgi
2i! cut iu tho lato war for less thau a year.
Be died in February, 1SG4, and in JEG6 a
pension was granted to tbo widow at $25 per
mouth, dating from her husband's death.
Tho widow continued to receive the pension
until Juno 17. 38G9, when she was married
to Henry T. Mowatt, which, under the law,
terminaicd bur pensionable right. In 3678
Mowatt died. The President says in his
veto; "If sho is to bo again pensioned be
causo her second husband does not survive
her, tho trausaction haunnoro tbo complex
ion of an adjustment of Governmental iusur-mice-on
tho lifouof tho second butsbaud than
the allowance of a pension ou just and rea
sonable grounds. Legislation of this descrip
tion is sure to establish a precedent which it
vriil bo difficult to disclaim, and which, if
followed, cannot fuil to lead to abuse."
The Supremo Court of the United States de
rided to-day in what'is known as the "Jim
Crow" car case of PJcssy V6. Ferguson, that tbo
Etatutcof Louisiawfrequiriiig railroad com
panies to supply separate coaches for white
and colored persons is constitutional, affirm
ing the decision of the court below. Justice
Brown delivered the opinion. Justico Har
lau dissented. Justico Brown dismissed the
case with a very b:ief opinion, merely saying
that tho Stato legislation in this case was
analogous with legislation providing separate
tchoolsfor coloicd and white children.
"WEUKkBDAX, May 20. 'Tho speediest murder

Gen. Wheeler has a little habit of making a
speech aud endeavoring to have a formidable
array of tabular statistics, culled from the
prilled statements of various alleged authori
ties on the particular subject be is discussing,
inserted in tho Record as part of a five minutes'
speech. Pago after page of this journal would
be given up to figures if tho General had his
way. .But the other day Chair man Perkins,
of tbo Printing Committee, ' called him down."
Gen. Wheeler explained with much gesticula
tion aud cxplosiveness of voice that ho had
simply put in a few labels which ho did not
have time to read, and bo hinted that tho ob
jection to bis courso was due to the fact that
the speech reflected on tbo Rcpublicau party.
At this naive statement the ITouso heartlessly
laughed. Ex-Speaker Crisp camo to bis col
league's defense, but the House, on a yea and
nay vote, was overwhelmingly in favor of
striking out the unuttercd thoughts of tho
gentleman from Alabama.
A story is now going the rounds at tbc Capi

"Nothing. Just told. all 1 knew in tbo Senate

''About five minutes."
Minister Terrell docs not scorn alarmed by

him by William E. Dodgo aud other, with
Rev. H. O. Dwight, of Constantinople. Iu an

Tho dress worn by United States Minister
Bieckinridgo last week on bciug received by
tbo Czar has provokad much comment in
Washington by those who no not know that it
was not a diplomatic uniform, but simply a
court dress, which many of our foreign repre
sentatives havo used on occasions when sumo
sort of distinctive attiro is demanded. Minis
tor Breckinridge, however, did not don his
kuco breeches, patent-leather pumps, silk
stockings, and coat with brass buttons without
first consulting tho Slato Department and re
ceiving instructions that ho must conform to
tho requirements of tbo Russian Court Cham
berlain as regards matters of dross and other
little points of etiquct which aro so dear to tho
average European court. Tho correspondence
over tho uniform tho Minister should wear
was begun sovcral weeks ago, aud went through

When Alexander III. was crowned Mirii3tor
Hunt, who was then our rcpicsentativo at St.

not required to appear iu any dress other than
that invariably worn by American diplomats
abroad. The only otbor United States repre
sentative then at Moscow was Admiral Upshur,
who, of course, was attired in the full uniform
of his rank. The coronation of Nicholas II.,
bowover, is evidently regarded as a greater oc
casion by tho Stato Department, for not only 13
this Government represented at Moscow by tho
entire Legation's corps, but also by three Army
and three Naval officers especially detailed. A

It is always a difficult t:k to teach childron
to bo respectful in speech to thoir elders with
out making them little prig3, or frightening
them so with commands and punishments that
thoy aro afraid to talk at all. An abrupt
"Yea" or "No" from a child is always un
pleasant. Either monosyllabto can be used
quietly and gently, so that it seems as proper
as ouo could wish, but chtldrcn-cnn't help being
exploivo or sulky or ozcited sometimes, and
then their replies may be decidedly uuroan
norly. ".Ma'am" is a particularly ungraceful'
form of speech, "air" i3 nioro pleasing.
"Ma'am is a flat, jangling contraction, and is
bad enough when used by servants, but it
al way 3 seems a great pity to teach it to chil
dren. Tho fashion of having children use a
title with their responses as "Yes, fatbor," or
"Yes, undo Jim," or "Yes, Dick" is all
right enough in tho family, but it is cumber-
somo to ozpect them, while they are vory
small, to remember aud uso the names or titles
of all tho peoplo to whom they may talk.
However, with all the difficulties, little chil
dren should bo taught their manners, for cour
tesy in children, as well a3 their ciders, makes
tbo world bright and sunny. Alio, paronts
must not forget woe be on their head if they
do! that a courtesy is duo tho young folks
from tho old. Young folks who aro always
being scolded about tho respect and honor duo
their parents, and who aro not shown any re
spect and houor iu return, whito away from
home they are treated with courtesy and defer
ence, will soon discover that they can stay away
from home for long hours or forever vory pleas
antly, and the home will be deserted.
THE VIOLET THAIS'.
Nothing is moro remarkable, than the growth
of tho flower industries in London. Not many
years ago flowers wcro expensive luxuries, only
to bo obtained in early Spring by thoso who
could afford to pay fancy prices; now any ono
may purchaso in the streets, for a. penny tho
rao3t lovely flowers from tho Sicily Islands,
Holland, and tho south of France. Every
flower has its allotted week or fortnight while
the rush is on tbc jonquils, tho hyacinths, and
tho violets. Just now violets are iu full swing,
and every day threo trains leave fbo south of
Franco for Paris laden with them. Tho train
which reaches Paris at 5 o'clock in tho morn
ing is the one which supplies tho French capi
tal; the burden of the other two trains is dis
persed all over Europe, but mora especially to
England. The violets are collected all along
tho Mediterranean shores, are packed in little
wickerwork baskets, aud sent off by express
The co3t of transport is at the rate of a penny
a pound, and each truck contains between four
and flvo tons of violets. Here in London tho
flower-girls sell them in tho streets from their
baskets, but in Paris thoy are sold from Iittla
carta at a penuy a bouquot, and everybody
buy3 them, heedless of the fact that they are
tho Napoleonic emblem. A few years ago any
ono who wore a buttonhole of violets would
havo been put down a3 an enemy of tbo Re
public; but it shows how dead the idea of a
Napoleonic revival is in France, when every
man in the streets weara its badge without any
thought of the prctcMder across the frontier.
For burns, tho easiest good remedy, or relief,
: rather, is vnseline, or flour lightly sprinkled
ovor tho hurt. For bruise3, an. application of
cloths wrung from cold wator, and followed
by hot water application, is soothing.
Paris has chosen for ita latest wonder a
prophetess a young woman, a spiritualistic
medium, who claims to bo tho mouthpieco of
tho Angel Gabriel. Somo of her prophecies
have been fulfilled,, aud iu cousequcuco her
rooms aro besieged by priests, politicians, so
cio ty dames, artists, poets, lovosick maidens,
and hundreds of peoplo who lonjj for a peep
iuto tbo mystery of tho future. However, sho
makes some mistakes, and it is probable that
her history will bo tho history of .countless
others who havo claimed Divine, authority for
their dreaminys. Perhaps she is not a fraud.
Perhaps sho is deluded into a belief in herself.
Perhaps the Angel Gabriel really has chose u
her to speak, to tbo world for him.
