N. B. Remember, we have no branch store in this city, nor have we any connection with any other establishment. Don't be imposed upon by unprincipled
parties, but remember that our establishment extends from Seventh to Eighth street, and we are located at 812-814 Seventh street northwest. Bear this in
mind, and do not be misled by trickery.
1 took occasion last week to remark that this
was the first session of Congress in many years
that had passed without a single day having
been given to labor bills. Mr. H. J. Schultcrs,
member of the legislative committee of D. A.
CG, K. of L., called on Speaker Reed a couple
of days ago to make a representation to him
on that score, and Mr. Reed, so Mr. Scbul
ters says, promised to have the Committee on
Rules set aside a day for the labor committee.
There are several bills on the calendar in which
the labor organizations are deeply interested,
but especially one to prevent convict labor from
competing with tUe labor of free men and one
Intended to make enective me eigut-nour law,
already on the statute book.
Young. Mr. James G. Blaine is the victim of
some ycry violent prejudices. There arc peo
ple about Washington who hate him so cor
dially somehow that they would sit up at night
to conspire against bim aud to concoct stories
for the purpose of injuring him. This explains
several stories that have recently been pub
lished, and especially one to the effect that he
bad been so disorderly on the floor o the House
that Speaker Reed had to order his ejection.
After a pretty careful investigation 1 am con--viueed
that the story did an injustice to this
young man, that it was almost without founda
tion, and that Mr. Reed requests the publica
tion almost as much as young Mr. Blaine
could. Fair play is a jewel, ami as 1 was
led Into giving some credit to the story my
self, I think it right now to make the correc
tion as far as possible. Whatever may have been
chargeable to young Mr. Blaine in other places
and at other times, his behavior since ho be
came clerk to the House Committee on Foreign
Affairs seems to have been above reproach. All
who are best capable of testifying in the case
The articles that have filled the newspaper
press during the past week about the alleged
oxhaustlou of the Treasury surplus and the al
leged impending bankruptcy of the Treasury
have been, on the whole, the worst specimens
of financial slandering ever written for the
newspaper press. The surplus is uot exhausted.
Secretary Windom says he has enough of it left
to nay hills amounting to forty or fifty millions of
dollars yet, aud I think wo may take Ills word
for it. There is not the slightest danger, not
even the slightest possiblllt-, of a deficit in the
Treasury for several years to come. Besides,
the howl is so meaningless and inconsistent.
The issue made uv both political parties, but
especially by the Democrats, in the last cam
paign was that the surplus mubt be got rid of.
Now they say it has been got lid of and they aro
grumbling about it, while the Republicans say
there Is quite u surplus on baud still. As the Re
publicans aro the custodians of tho Treasury,
they certainly ought to know.
1 wouldu't have it mentioned for tho world,
but it isn't every woman who could buy $21,78:1
worth of real estate for a dollar us Mrs. Har
rison has doue at (Hen Echo. And Mrs. Harrl
HOii a few days ago called attention to the fact
that tho District Commissioners were tho Pres
ident's appointees, aud therefore would be very
liable to make improvements in the direction of
tho Harrison family real estate interest. The
old man ought to try and do something
with Ills better half, or he'll not know what to
do with all the real estate he'll have on hand
shortly. Supposing Mrs. Harrison, instead of a
foliar, should think of investing 100 in real
estate ! There would bo very little left either
at Glen Echo or Caoe May.
I beg to present my compliments to the
editor of the Sunday Gazette and to say I am
informed that he is old enough to have better
sense. Accusations that are absurd and abuse
that is simply foolish are calculated to hurt
ouly those who use them. David Lewsley.

How Some TjocjU Wags Have Persecuted
the Famous lloniftice.
Mr. William Dickson Is the prince of practi
cal jokers. Playing practical jokes is as neces
sary to his happiuess to his actual existence
as eating is to an ordinary man. His jokes are
invariably of such a kind that they don't hurt
anybody, and don't leave anybody in a bad
humor. They are all good-natured. One of
Dickson's latest jokes was at the expense of
John Chamberlin. When ex-Senator Mahone
lived iu Washington Chamherlin's was his head
quarters, and when he comes to Washington
now he makes his headquarters there. When
ho called a meeting of the Republican leaders
of Virginia, the other day, Chamherlin's was
named as the place of meeting. Mr. Chamber
llu agreed that Mr. Mahone should have the
big banquet hall for the purposes of his meet
lug, never stopping to inquire what
sort of a crowd Mahone would bring
there. When tho time came Chamber-
lin was considerably knocked out to ' what thev mea"
find his place swarming with Virginia negroes,
lie was not in the habit of entertaining gentle
men of color, and ho didn't like It, but ho had
to Gland it. Dickson aud some of his friends
saw that Chamherlin's feelings were aroused
and they decided to play on them. So, seating
themselves at a table within earshot of Cham
berliu, they began to discuss what tho news
papers were supposed to ho saying about tho
mattci. It was a great shame, they 6ald, that
the newspapers should take advantage of tho
Mahone incident to write about Chamherlin's
as a nigger hotel. They took good care that
Chainberlln should hear what they wore saying,
although, Iago-llko, they pretended that thev
were very anxious to keep It from him, When
he turned to them for further information they
closed up immediately, assured him that it wa6
nothing; that they wero sorry they had men
tioned it at all; that the "nowspapers that
had published it were of no account
any uow. Tliey advised hi in that it
price, and I can assure you our patronage. If
tuere is anything in it for me I shall expect you
to do the proper thing. Yours,
J. Wileoughiiy Peacock, Secretary.

Dear Sin: The Twilight Cadets and Mack
intosh Club visit Washington on tho 23d or 24th
instant, during the session of the African Con
ference, to take part In the Grand International

proud of our organization, and will give us a

Gil Ball, 073 Lombard street.
The jokers managed to be present when tho
i last letter was handed to Chamberlin. Ho
read it and then made tho air bluo. "Reserve
, a choice room and a bath for himself, the so-and-so,
and so-and-so, said Chamberlain," and
then calling his clerk ho instructed him as fol
lows: "Here, write to this black so-and-so.

It was stated at tho State Department yester

rage, stamping the iloor aud exclaimlug, "I keep

pressions of a much more forcible character.
Dickson and his friends tried their best to com
fort him, but he wouldn't be comforted. Tho
idea that his famous hotel had come to bo re-
garded as a nigger reort was too much for him. ,
