TESTIMONIAL FROM MEMBERS.
Wiishington'H Needs to ho Investigated by
At the joint meeting yesterday, said to have
been tho first in eight years, of the Senate and
House Committees on Public Ruildings and
Grounds, the question of new buildings in
Washington City for the Interior Department,
the General Post Oflice,andof a sitefor the new
city post office were considered. After a
lengthy discussion the matter was referred to a
joint subcommittee, consisting of Senators
Morrill and Vest and Representatives Clunie
and Milliken, which is to make thorough in
vestigation of the whole subject, and report the
results of its work to the full committee as
soon as convenient.
General Benjamin F. Ecti.eii says the condi
tion of the Western mortgage-ridden farmer is
hopeless. , He can see nothing in the future for
him but ruin or repudiation. The General
should wait a while and watch the effect of the
McKinley Tariff bill when it gets into operation.
A pleasant event of the past week was the
Tisit to Washington of ex-President Ghover
Cleveland. The many friends and admirers
of the distinguished gentleman were glad to
perceive by the brightness of his eye and general
vigor of his appearance that he was even in bet
ter health than when he left the White House.
Members of Congress and the general public
will find on the first page of the Heuald
supplement to-day an illustration well worth
their careful study. The little District of
Columbia is a sturdy fellow, but it's a shame
and disgrace for great big Uncle Sam to pile
such a burden on his shoulders.
Tho great May Day labor demonstrations
throughout this country and Europe happily
passed off without serious disturbances. Tho
vast army of wage-workers that engaged in the
demonstrations show how widespread and thor
ough the organization of labor has become.
Rut a more important fact was the comparative
good order maintained, showing that the gigantic
movement for bettering the condition of the
workmen is moving on rational lines under the
direction of cool heads.
Deliberately Shot His Companion.
Atlanta, Ga., May 3. At the European
Hotel to-day, M. J. Goldman, of Memphis, 6hot
J. W. Howard, of St. Louis, and Howard will
die. Roth men are strangers here, and there is
a mystery over the shooting which is as yet un
solved. Howard, though conscious, would say
nothing except that his real name is Edward
Skinner, and his brother-in-law, named S. O.
Doan, iB in Sherman, Tex. The shooting was
deliberately done. The men came here to
Eclhcr and were on apparently on cood terms.
They went to Goldman's room and the door
had'been closed but a minute when shots were
heard. Goldman walked out into the hall and
in tho confusion made his escape. Goldman
and Howard, as they were known here, had
been In Atlanta on and off since April 17.
Thoy were believed to be showmen, but noth
ing definite can be learned about either.

Washington, D. C, May 2, 1800.
Having followed Professor Colllurc's first six
weeks' course of French conversation, wc,tho un
dersigned members of his class, feel justified In
fully indorsing tho Professor's claim to onginnl
Ity In his method of imparting the power to vo
calize correctly in French, thereby giving a per
fect accent and pronunciation. His method is
undoubtedly based upon scientific principles, ns
we have had both the menus nnd opportunity of
duly and thoroughly testing; and It is ns cor
rectly eircctlvc as it is scientific, nnd therefore
The result is that his Instruction appeals to tho
intellect, as well as to the itnngluntlou, lending
thereto a charm unknown to other methods. It
captures nnd retains enthralled tho enthusiastic
support nnd unllnggiug interest of tho pupils
throughout tho entire course. As a natural con
sequence, the practicnl conversational results
aro marked to an unprecedented degree for so
short a course. Why? Recauso of the inwnrd
consciousness of power and knowledge which
tho Professor has the happy faculty ot impart
ing to each pupil through his exact scientific
system. As very aptly expressed by sovcral of
the pupils, tho study of French under this
method is perfectly fascinating to the earnest
pupil. Fascinating because it gives faith in tho
possibility of learning to sneak French by it.

Although the project for the establishment of
the Columbus Memorial Parle in Rock Creek
Valley received a temporary pet-back in the
nouse last week, its friends are confident it will
pass on the next District day. There is no doubt
that a good majority of the enlightened and liberal-minded
members are in favor of the bill,
and if proper effort is made to rally them to its
support wheu the measure again comes up it
will become a law. The friends of tho park
should see to it that nothing is left undone to
Insure this result.

The sudden death of Senator Beck yes
terday afternoou was a terrible shock
to this community, and drew out on
every side expressions of tho deopest
sorrow. His bereaved family has the slucerest
sympathy of all In their aflllction. To the coun
try and to the Democratic party in particular Mr.
Buck's death ia a great loss, for he was an able
and thoroughly trained public servant and a
fearless aud powerful fighter for the cause of
true Democracy and good government. Keen
witted, alert, sturdy, aud courageous, ho was
the admiration and love of friend and foe alike
and leaves behind him a memory that will bo
long cherished by all who knew him.
The decision of the District Supreme Court
that the Commissioners have the legal right to
dismiss policemen without trial or the asbign
.ment of cause naturally makes the members of
the force uneasy as to their tenure of office.
The present Board of Commissioners are ad
mitted on all hands to be fair and just men, but
nevertheless it is plain the policemen would
feel greater security if the law guaranteed them
Immunity from removal except after trial and
conviction on definite charges. This would
seem to be Jn accordance with the spiiit of
American institutions, and it is to be hoped
efforts will be made to secure the passage of a
iaw dealing with the matter.
Death ol" Mrs. D. K. Tripp.
The death early Friday morning of Mrs.
Dwight K. Tripp, of Chicago, formerly Miss Co
rinne Williamson, daughter of Gen. James A.
Williamson, at her father's residence on N
streot, after a llugerlng illness, is a severe
nflliction to her husband aud family, who were
devotedly attached to her. In loveliness of
character and manner she much resembled her
mother, whoso death some years ago caused
such regret She leaves a little boy about two
years old. The funeral takes place this after

Washington Letter in Concoid Evening Monitor.
Mr. and Mrs. Emmons Blaine, with their in
teresting little children, have returned to their
home in Baltimore, after a week's visit to their
relatives, the family of the Secretary of State.
1 saw the whole lamily while thoy were taking
a walk in the twilight, one evening last week,
and tho two facts which most impressed me
were that Secretary Blaino is very nffectionate
toward his grandchildren and that he is a re
markably vigorous man and a light stepper.
No Agrecement on Silver.
Tho Republican Senate caucus committee on
sliver had anothermeetlug yesterday afternoon.
Several mombers were absent, and no attempt
was made to commit those present to the sup
port of any one of the several piopositlons that
have been before the committee from timo to
time. A general discussion revealed the fact
that the two parties on the question ot author
izing tho Secretary of tho Treasury to redeem
bullion purchase notes with bullion were as
widely apart as ever. The committee adjourned
without fixing a time for reassembling.
