.X. O- ADDISON,
Successor to RIDER & ADDISON,
Paper, Blank Books, and
From time to time for years past little items
havo appeared in tho gossip columns of Wash
ington papers and in tho Washington corre
spondence of those of other cities regarding
the severely economical style in which certain
members of tho Diplomatic Corps lived here.
These items recited that tho economical diplo
mats, although they represented great nations
and presumably received good salaries, resided
in very humble quartors, and, while accepting
right and left invitations to dinners and other
entertainments, never returned the favors
thus received. Of course it Is to bo presumed
the writers of tho paragraphs referred to had
more than one individual in mind, but from
gossip that has been iloatlng around since
Baron Fava, the Italian Minister, left Wash
ington, it seems likely that his manner of liv
ing must havo inspired a good many of them.
Baron Fava's colleagues in the Diplomatic
Corps occasionally let drop remarks which
showed their surprise at tho Btyle in which the
representative of tho King of Italy lived in
"Washington, and it is 6aid fow of them ever
called on tho Baron, because they did nottare
to seek him out in the exceedingly unpreten
tious quarters In which he resided.
Mr. Celso Caesar Moreno, an Italiau resident
of Washington, recently addressed n commu
nication to a New York Italinu paper, tho
Crhloforo Colombo, in which he gave 6omo
interesting facts about Fava's methods of
living. Mr. Moreno took for his text an in
terview which appeared in tho Eco aVItalia,
another Italian paper of New York. The in
terview was with Mr. Riva, the Italian consul
in New York, in which, speaking of Baron
Fava's recall, he said that the "royal Italian
coat-of-arms and the national flag of Italy
would be taken down from the palatial resi
dence of tho Italian Legation in "Washington
and follow the Italian Minister." Alluding
to this remark, Mr. Moreno says in his com
munication, which is translated as follows:
"The royal coat-of-arms and the national
flag of Italy cannot be taken down, for the
simple reasons that they are not there, they
never havo been there, and there is no place
to put them. The Italian Location does not
exist in AVashington, unless "in scorn a fur
nished room at No. 1110 Connecticut avenue,
in a small house situated between the barber
6hop of a negro, by name Peter Marshall, and
the shop of a confectioner and caterer, by
name Ritti, is called the Legation of His
Majesty the King of Italy. The Legation of
His Majesty the King of Italy In "Washington
is peripatetic, and is always to be found in a
modest furnished room in modest lodging
houses, where poor clerks, waiters, barbers,
and shopkeepers lodge. To my own knowledge
from 1885 to 1891 (I know it because it was
pointed out to me by newspaper men, politi
cians, and others, who desired to laugh at me
and Italy) the 60-called Legation of the King
of Italy was at No. 1405, then at No. 1505,
then at 1715 H street northwest, then at No.
915 Sixteenth street, then at 829 Eighteenth
street, and is now at 1110 Connecticut avenue.
The royal coat-of-arms of Italy and the
national flag have never been seen in front of or
on top of these lodging-houses where the
Italian Legation and the numble domicile of
Fava have been.
"This official niggardliness, which has 60
much damaged the prestige of the Italian
name and made Fava tho laughing stock of
tho foreign diplomats and of the people of
Washington, has been for years an Item for
the daily chronicle of the Capital. "While all
the nations of Europe, Mexico, Central and
South America, and even China, Korea, and
Japan havo palaces for their Legations and
residences and give grand receptions, Italy
alone showed the most squalid official poverty
worthy of scorn aud ridicule a public scan
dal. "Fava, in order to save the fat salary of
$10,000 a year which the overtaxed Italian
tax-payers cave him, always accepted invita
tions to dinners and receptions from foreign
diplomats, from Presidents Cleveland and
Harrison, from -Mr. Blaine, and prominent
citizens. But on account of this niggardli
ness, or because his furnished room was too
small, he never reciprocated tho courtesies
and hospitality offered to him as tho repre
sentative of the classic land of Christopher
Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci. The peo
ple, government, and King of Italy always
ignored this humiliating and shameful state of
things, because they were all the time erro
neously informed by Fava himself and by tho
tremendous puffs probably written by Fava
and sent by his flatterer, an ex-Italian disciple
of Figaro in tho Italian newspapers In New
York and in Italy."
Baron Fava's turn for economy is made all
tho more striking when it is known that he
was allowed $5,000 a year by the Italian gov
ernment to pay reut for a legation building
in Washington. Not long ago, it is said,
the rumors about Fava's way of living reached
Rome. An official of the Foreign Office there
wrote to a friend in "Washington, asking for
exact Information as to tho sort of 6tyle in
which Fava lived. The desired information
For the Child's Hospital.
Tho great success which attended the full
dress rehearsal of "Tho Pirates of Penzance"
at tho Academy of Music, Baltimore, on Fri

of the Child's Hospital of this city to arrange

5, at Lincoln Hall. The proceeds of the per
formance will be devoted to the Child's Hos
pital of this city and the Day Nursery of Bal
timore. For the benefit of the latter tho opera
will be given to-morrow night in Baltimore.
The event in this city will without doubt be a
decided social treat.
