IT SHOULD DG SUPPRESSED.
Tho Praotico of Stopping C.arrnlgcB on tlio
CrosA-iviilltft of tho Crowded Streets.
"Yes," snld tho police sergeant, "I can glvo
you a pointer, but It would cost mo my placo
If you mentioned my name. 1 refer to tho man
ner In whlsh tho drivers of vehicles stop 6quarcly
across tho street crossings In taking In and let
ting off passengers. This is nu Interference
with tho rights of pedestrians. In wet weather
people are oftentimes compelled either to wait
for some minutes to cross a street or to step out
In tho mud and water anklodeep to get around
tho obstructing vehicle. You may Ret u good
Idea of tho practice, for example, by standing
on F street and watching tho carriages which
are always gathered about tho big dry goods
stores As a rule, tho street-car drivers stop
whero they ought to; but thohordicmen. nearly
all of them, aro ut'erly regardless of tho pub
lic convenience. Tho Jim Dandy fellows In
this regard, howovcr, are the mutton-chop side
whiskered English coachmen, who drive tho
carriages of our society people. They seem to
take a positive delight in putting pedestrians to
delay and discomfort.
"If you will look In Webb's Digest of tho
Laws of the District you will find that this ob
structing of street-crossings Is punishable by a
lino of not less than 5. Why don't the police
break up tho practice Well, we have made
at rests time and again, but the Police Court
does not properly support us, In that tho benefit
of the doubt, as tho lawyers say, is always given
to the accused. It Is a fact that oftentimes
these parties aro lot oft because tho officers
making tho arrests had not measured with a
tape lino tho exact dlBtauco occupied In front
of tho crosslugs, and consequently could not
swear to it. It is something like swearing to
tho exact speed In a ease of fast dilvlng. The
truth Is that this form of obstiuctlon of
streetB Is an infernal nuisance, and it Is getting
worso and worse ns tho city becomes more
thickly settled. I guess after awhllo there will
have to bo a big policoman stationed at tho
prlnotoal crossings, as is tho case on Broadway,
CAPT. SMITH'S SAD DEATH.
Stricken "With a ITatal lllncHH On the Day
He Got His ITortune.
In the Inst days of Congress a bill wbb passed
to reimburse Capt. W. T. Smith, of New Bed
ford, Mass., for several vessels that the United
States Government had seized and used In tho
war. Tho claim was for $75,000, and It passed
the Senate and received tho signature of Presi
dent Harrison on tho last day of the session.
Capt. Smith aud his wife came on to Washing
ton to look after tho claim, and thev made
many friends while here, They had quarters at
tho Fredonla. On Saturday a week ago Capt.
Smith signed the papers for the $75,000 and the
same day ho was taken down with typhoid
pneumonia, and despite tho best of attention
from his wife, son, and daughter ho died on
Friday evening last. Capt. Smith was still In
his prime, and the circumstances of his death
were about ps sad as could well bo imagined.
The remains were taken to New Bedford for
Give the Poor Mun a Chance.
Ladies' Homo Journal.
That a husband is at times silent and preoc
cupied does not argue that ho Is Indifferent to
his wife, writes Mrs. Phineas T. Barnum. Ho
may be depressed, and yot not feel that mar
riage, for him, is a failure; he maybe captious
aud fretful, yet feel no Irritation against his
wife. I am not absolving men from tho obliga
tion to bo agreeable to their woman-kind, nor
extenuating their frequent infractions of tho
code of marital amenities; 1 am only assuring
you, for your own, good, that these things are
ofteu tho outwnid and visible sign of an inward
and spiritual dlsacsordanco which you have
not caused, and about which you would be un
wlso to grieve. Learn to wait, and by-and-by
you will fine! that business went wrongthat day;
or he sat in a draft, and all his bones ached with
an incipient cold; or hehadeateu an indigesti
ble meal, (not at homo, of course,) and was de
pressed he know not why.
A Bit, of Street-Oar Philosophy.
Two men on tho front platform of a street-car
were commenting on the hardships of the poor
horses. "Which of those animals," said one,
"do you think suffers tho most and has tho
greater amount of work ?" His companion
gave it up. "Why, the ono to tho right," con
tinued tho first speaker. "It is this way: tho
horso to the right Is handler to the whip hand
of tho driver. X havo noticed that while evory
driver makes constant and often unnecccssary
uso of whips ono horse receives tho brunt of
tho goading tho ono on the right. The horso
on the loft Is rarely touched and enjoys a com
paratively easy time of It. Now, aB the right
hand horso receives nearly all of the lashing,
at each stroke ho struggles forward, and in
quickening his paco draws after him most tho
entire weight of tho car, while his partner in
misery trots along almost free from tho bur
den." Mr. Olevelantl's New Tile.
Now York Recorder.
Ex-President Cleveland Is certainly loslnc
flesh. Ills friends sny that he has diminished
his weight by nearly sixty pounds since he left
the White llouse, and his proportions aro now
such as to attract no uudue attontlon from ob
servers. Ills enemies con no longer comment
with ghoulish glee upon his possession of a
superfluous quautlty of adlposo tissue if they
havo any regard for tho truth. Tho calumny
about tho affectation of the ex-Presldeut of an
cient and battered hoadgear may al60 as well bo
exploded. I noticed the other morning in com
ing down town on the same train with him that
ho wore a natty tile of tho latest stylo. Tho
most fashionable promenador on Fifth avenue
could not havo taken exception to it.
