BurrAi.o Bill's American friends will be
slow to believe the story which comes from
Home that he refused to pay up when Italian
peasants performed n feat in horsemanship for
which he offered a prize. The Italinus seem to
believe it, however, and at Florence the Wild
West show was rigidly boycotted.
The death of Gen. Cnooic has removed one of
the sturdiest and most striking figures in our
Inter military history, lie was a thorough soldier
and a man who in every relation of life reflected
credit on his country and on the military ser
vice of the nation. No better epitaph can he
found for his tomb than (ten. Siikiimax's say
ing, "He was a man you could always depend
People who bolicvc in placing tho civil service
of the Government on a strictly business basis
welcome such movements by their opponents
as that begun in Baltimore tho other day, when
an anti-civil service reform league was organ
ized by the presidents of nineteen Bepublicau
ward clubs. Thcso organizations serve to show
the sort of citizens who oppose a business ad
ministration of the Government, and afford a
most valuable object lesson on reform to the
Having made the Columbia National Bank an
assured success and placed it among the solid
financial concerns of tho city,Mr. B.n. WAnsnn
has retired from the presidency of that institu
tion to devote himself to other enterprises which
require the benefit of his exceptional knowledge
of business and restless energy for their proper
development. The retirement of Mr. Waiint.r
is a source of personal regret to hi late associ
ates in the bank, but he leaves tho affairs of the
institution in capable hands that will conduct
them with continued succoss. Mr. A. T. Bnrr
tox, who succeeds Mr. Wxnsnii as president, is
a gentleman in whose ability and careful
judgment all who know him have entire confi
dence. No man is so great that the world can't get
along without him, and doubtless Germany will
survive the retirement of Prince Bisuakck from
the Chancellorship of the Empire. Still if his
withdrawal is not speedily followed by some
sort, of disaster, orinternal or international com
plication of a very grave nature, the world will
be surprised. What had been known of the
character and temperament of the young Em
peror before the present crisis arose was not
calculated to inspire confidence or win admira
tion, and the fact that the crisis has been pre
cipitated through his stubbornly insisting on
policies to which the astute and venerable crea
tor of the modern German empire is irrevoca
bly opposed cau hardly fail to increase this feel
ing of distrust. BibMAitcK and his masters, old
and young, represent ideas and systems abhor
rent to the best interests of humanity, true civ
ilization, and Christianity, as these are dis
cerned in the light of American sunshine.
Young Emperor William's mistakes, there
fore, are such mainly from the standpoint of
imperialism, and those who believe in free pop
ular governments could watch with equanimity
his entering on a course that promises disaster,
if himself and his family and the military em
pire were aloue to be involved in it. But a
European war, which young William's rash
ness seems likely to precipitate, would bo a
calamity to tho great German people and to all
Europe, and from every point of view is to be
The prematuic publication of the piovlsions
of the McKinley Tariff bill seems to have been
in the nature of .i "ye-that-havc-interests-to-pro-tect-prcpare-to-have-them-protected-now"
lamation. It was a last call to the claas which
has grown rich aud wants to grow richer
through tho favor aud partiality of the laws aud
at the expense of all the other daises of the
community. It let them know in ample time
what sort of compromise the Republicans of
the House thought of making between the
party's platform promises to the whole country
and its signed-and-sealed contract with tho
great campaign f uud contributors. And it gave
the latter a chance to come forward and make
their last decisive "kick" where tho proposed
compromise really threatened their profits, thus
enabling the Ways and Means Committee to
understand very clearly just how to fix their
bill so thnt it can be rushed through the Uousc
with the least possible fiictiou, and will curtail
in tho slightest possible degree the princely in
comes of the protected when it becomes a law.
And from the amount of vigorous "kicking"
done by the repiesoutntivesof tho protected in
dustries, it 16 safe to say that the provisions of
the bill when it is introduced in the
Houbo will be materially different from
those "prematurely" published on Wed
nesday. A very remarkable feature of
tho bill as published should be noted. Tho
cut6 made in the sugar duty, on rice, tobacco,
alcohol, and a few other articles, it Is claimed,
would effect a reduction in tho revenue of
$00,000,000. Hut at the same time tho bill, for
the protection of tho agriculturists of the
Webt, placed higher duties on eggs, potatoes,
hops, aud some other agricultural products. No
attention was paid to tho likelihood of these
new taxes tending to offset tho reductlou of
revenue effected on sugar, etc. The conclusion
is natural that tho iucreased duties on agricul
tural products wore intended merely to pull the
wool over tho eyes of tho fanner of the West.
Thebo duties could afford the latter no protec
tion, because when com lu so cheap that ho
finds burning it as fuel the most profitable use
he can mako of it, it is not likely any foreign
agricultural products could, oven without a
tariff barrier, come iuto the country and under
sell his own products. Tho McKixlet bill is,
and was intended to he, a more advauced hluh
protection measure thau has ever before been
presented in Congress. And inevitably, as tho
years go on, the protected industries will need
more and more protection. The man who can't
get along without half a dozen doses of stimu
lant a day this year will require ten or twelvo
doses to produce the same effect next year.
Gen. Robert A. Schcnck. formerly Minister to
England, is dangerously ill with pneumonia nt

Mr. Hallam Williamson, tho son of Gen.J. A
Williamson, of this city, has been appointed by
the President to be postmaster nt Albuquerque,

terests there. This will be gratifying to his
many friends here and in New Mexico.
The Pittsburg CvmrncrciiU-Gazcttc, in a recent
long article on the business interests of Youngs

A large party or Government officials went to
Baltimore yesterday afternoon to attend tho
ceremonies incident to the opening of the new
post office. The party included Secretary Wln

THE IBSEN READINGS.
"Winslow Entertains a. Fine Audience
nt Sirs. Hlldrup's.
The Ibsen readings at the residence of Mrs. Ilil
drup, No. 1 Iowa Circle, on Saturday after
noon, drew out a fine audience of some of the
most distinguished literary and well-known so
ciety people. The three large parlors were
crowded, and many came too late to get an en
trance at all. The grcat.Norwegian drair tist had
a fine interpreter in Mrs. Ewing Winslow, who,
notwithstanding the comparatively little known
of the author's "style, was able to fix and keep
the close attention of the audience throughout.
As the play progressed the Interest increased,
and her dramatic power had room to display it
self. The play chosen was "The Pillars of Society."
This plays abounds iu scenes that are tipped
with delicate satyrs, or that touch upon the
verge of pathos, even deepening and rising into
the force of passion. Ibsen is not a Shakes
peaie, but he voices the advanced thought of
the times as it finds exnrcssion in modern
character, and he brings out most clearly the
idea that woman is one of the moral forces in
society, and that ambition has its limit, and is
followed 60on or late by Nemesis until confes
sion and repentance are compelled. The last
reading will be at the residence of Chief Justlco
Fuller's on next Saturday afternoon.
Among those present yesterday were Madame
Romero, Mrs. Otis Bigelow, Miss Dawes, Mrs.
Representative Owens, Mrs. Pomeroy, Mrs.
Soule. Mrs. Carvallo, Mrs. Cockrell, Mrs. Htl-
drup, Mrs. Nordhoff, Mrs. Henry Stronsr, Mrs.
Stone, Miss Ransom, Mrs. Dall, Mrs. Heaven,
Mrs. Hutterworth, Mrs. Spencer, Mrs. noratio
King, Mrs. Dr. Talbott, Mrs. McLellan, Mrs.
Laughton, Dr. Lamborn.Mr. Clark, Mrs. Hoar,
Mrs. Pilling, Miss Dawes, Mrs. Savage, Mrs.
Dr. Pope, Mrs. Terrill. Mrs. Munn, Mrs. Gar-
nee, Mrs. Guthridge, Miss Marsten, Mrs. Hay
cock, Mrs. Ten Eyck, Mrs. Ileuidekooper, Miss
Kate Field, and others. Mrs. Hildrup was inde
fatigable in contributing to the comfort of her
guests. Mr. Kreutzch gave somo fine piano
selections before the reading, and Dr. Piper
and Dr. Young rendered valuable service in
seating the guests. The ladles interested had
every reason to bo gratified at the great suc
cess. At the close of the reading many ladies lin
gered to congratulate the hostess or to ex
change greetiugs with Mrs. Winslow. Mrs.
Winslow has In years past been upon the stage,
and her tralniug is all very effective now. Her
vo ice is pleasant aud her utterance distinct.
Hhe is above medium size, has a line complex
ion, expressive eyes, and a wealth of black
hair above a low. broad brow. Her face Is
mobile and quickly chauges from crave to
gay as she 16 moved by tho feeling and motive
of the play. She wore a black velvet dress and
laces and she sat on a raised dais as she read.
The Crowd Was Callous.
William Hall, a white man, just released
fiom a term in tho jail, created something of a
sensation in Milburu's drug store, on Pennsyl
vania avenue, last night, by flourishing a bottle
on which the label, landanura, was conspicuous.
He told everybody that ho had drank tho con
tents and was eager to end his wayward and
miserable existence. As no ono seemed to caro
whether ho did or not, ho was allowed to de
part without molestation. The man was trylug
to work the sympathy racket, but tho crowd
which gathered seemed to bo very callous.
ttountich for Soldiers.
Senator IngalU (by request) introduced a bill
yesterday to give to every soldier or bailor who
served ninety days or longer In the late war a
bounty of 550 a year for every year's servico or
pait of a year. If the soldier is dead the money
hhall go iu the order named: To his widow,
minor children, father, or mother. In case a
soldier or sailor was discharged for disability,
he is to he paid the bounty for tho full term of
his enlistment. Any soldier who served as a
substitute for pay is excluded from tho bill.
Tito lilulilJill Reintroduced.
Senator Blair yesterday reintroduced his Edu
cational Aid bill with somo amendments. Tho
principal one of these reduces the total amount
of aid proposed in tho term ol eight years, be
ginning January 1, lb'Jl, from 77,000,000 to
58,000.000. By another amendment it is pro
vided that the distribution of the money btiall
be upon bases of illiteracy bhown by tho census
The President Has Returned.
The President returned to Washington at 4
4 o'clock yesterday afternoon from his shoot
ing trip on the Maryland Guu Club preserves.
Ho brought with him about sixty fine ducks as
tho result of his skill with the gun, aud ap
peared to have greatly enjoyed his outing,
Jtulgo Albion W.Tourgoc, of Now York, yes
terday made an nddrcss before tho House Com
mittee on tho Election of President, and Vico
President and Representatives in Congress in
explanation and advocacy of the bill intro
duced by Representative Kclloy, ot Kansas,
providing for tho election of Representa
tives in Congress under Federal law.
This bill had been drawn up by Judgo Tour
gee nnd is very oxhaustivo. The Speaker con
tended tlint tho 1)111 had uecn.so drawn as to

$1 a Ton Bounty on Beet Sugar.
Senator Paddock, from tho Committee on
Agriculture and Forestry, yesterday reported a
substitute for two bills referred to the committee
for the encouragement of the cultivation of the
sujrar beet and tho manufacture of sugar there
from, with a request that it'.bo referred to tho
I Committee on Finance. Tho bill proposes a
bounty of $1 for every ton of beets raised in tho
I United States, delivered to a factory, nnd mndo
