the latter power would feel somewhat em

Chinese turned down. As we are on the
friendliest possible terms with Japan, this
point ought to bo taken into consideration.

Mr. Clarkson and other eminent practical
politicians of the Republican faith recognize
the wisdom and tho utility of the Democratic
idea of a campaign of education, and they arc
adopting it as their own. The attempt to or
ganize into a compact body all tho Republican
clubs of the country, if carried out energeti
cally and thoroughly, can hardly fail to
strengthen tho party and prove of immense
benefit in solidifying the rank and file, who
take little interest in politics except during
tho actual progress of the campaign. This un
dertaking proves tho wisdom of tho Demo
cratic leaders who have been pleading aud
working for a similar thorough organization
of Democratic clubs throughout tho country.
Some steps have been taken in this directiou
within tho Democratic lines, but it is to bo
feared tho plans of operation are not suffi
ciently comprehensive to bear much fruit. No
doubt the Democrats have not at their com
mand the great revenues which the Republicans
derive from tho great magnates who have bene
fited by the tariff and other class legis
lation of the Republicans. Still, on the very
face of it tho scheme of club organization
proposed by ex-Rcprescntativo Kerr, of Penn
sylvania, and other gentlemen promised so
much good, and could have been carried into
effect at so small au outlay, that it should
have been adopted by tho Democratic Congres
sional Committee as part of tho regular busi
ness of that committee. True, some, little
was done to encourage tho movement py tho
committee, but it was not enough. There is
a national organization of Democratic clubs,
which is no doubt fairly complete, but it lb to
bo feared its effectiveness will not provo
great if kept to Itself. It should be closely
affiliated with tho Natloual Executive Commit
tee and the Congressional Committee, to each
of which it could, bp made a valuable auxiliary.
The plan which Mr, Kerr proposed contem
plated the establishment of a permanent,head-
. '-& t.j-UMfZM
quartcrs for the natioual organization of club
in Washington. At theso headquarters a small
forco of clerks could haYo been employed, and
through them a general supervision over the
orcauization in all parte of the country main
tained. Information could thus have been
collected and distributed, Democratic news
nnd documents supplied regularly every wook
to the smaller Democratic newspapers, and
generally all the organizations and voters of
tho party brought into closer relations and
educated in Democratic spirit and doctrine.
Such n plan if well carried out must havo
proved of immense beuefitto tho party, and it
is to be hoped it will yet be adopted. No
joaloueies between leaders or committees
should bo allowed to stand in its way.
It cannot bo an easy matter to run such an

it aro Hablo to hear hardly on tho more con
Bciontious, who do not need tho spur, and
compol thom to exceed the natural limits of
their powers in order not to drop out of tho
struggle. These victims aro entitled
to complain, but tho hardships they
suffer would probably be difficult to
avoid without endangering tho discipline of
tho office. This is tho fair view to take of tho
many complaints heard regarding tho over
working of certain classes of Census Office
employes. Superintendent Porter is no doubt,
as has been often charged, very anxious to
make a record for himself by completing tho
work of the present census sooner than was
done by his predecessors in the office. But
as ho Is himself a man who has worked his way
up from tho ranks and possesses a conscience,
it can hardly be credited that ho would sub
ject thoso undor his charge to real hardship
and oxact from thom more than a reasonable
amount of labor meroly to increase his own
glory. Such a course would r moreover, bo
pretty apt to result disastrously, as it would
endanger the accuracy of tho'census, and un
less it is fairly accurate the census will bo
absolutely worthless. Mr. Porter might much
hotter havo tho completion of tho count de
layed beyond previous censuses rather than
havo public confidence in its figures shaken.
Accuracy is tho first consideration, and any
thing which endangers -it should be avoided at

which he keeps up on the subject is so rigid
as to be painful, especially to those who are
rallying around tho President.
It is predicted that the President will ap

will prefer not to eamble on uutil after the

Mr. S. Dana Lincoln, secretary of the

office in tho Atlautlc Building, and questioned
for some points regarding the late investment
of tho company, Garrett Park, Said Mr.
Lincoln: "Wc feel much gratified at tho
success wo havo had in disposing of lots in
Gurrott Park, but tho Washington public arc
not slow in finding out whoro thoy can obtain
tho most and best for their money. Garrett
Park is tho only suburban subdivision out of
this city that has macadamized avenues
bordered with stonc-paved guttcrwnys and
wldo parking. Its avenues aro as dry and
smooth for travel at all seasons as tho streets
hero arc, and its high altitudo of from 300 to
400 feet above Washington insures freedom
from malaria, mosquitoes, and oppressive
heat in summer. This suburb is ono of tho
best known on tho Metropolitan Branch, and
has been established since 1888. The tract
Eurchascd included 493 acres, of which 150
avo been subdivided into roomy lots, nearly
all of which have been disposed of at reason
able figures. In tho construction of macada
mized roads, Btonc-paved gutters, and other
improvements thoro havo been expended
$60,000, whilo tho residences which havo already
been built havo cost betwecu $90,000 aud
"The park has numerous springs, and an
abundant supply of pure sparkling cold water
is accessible to every lot owner. Another fea
ture of tho park is tho picturesque views
from all points, and from tho high grounds
the Washington Monument and Soldiers'
Homo are visible. Tho railroad facilities aro
excellent, and sixteen trains now stop dally
at Garrett Park and additional trains have
been promised for tho approaching season.

FROM MR. T. E. ROESSLE,
Proprietor of the Arlington.
Washington, D. C, March 6, 1890.
My Dear Doctor Liguthili.:
It gives mo great pleasure to state that you
effected a romarkablo euro of deafness and
discharge from the oars in tho case of my
cousin, Marcus C. Rocsslo, and that tho case
has proved as permanent as it was radical.
I fool sure that without your skillful aid my
cousin would havo been a deaf man all his life.
Knowing of other cases in which you havo
been equally successful, I cheerfully give you
leave to refer to mo at any time, and hope
that your practice in Washington will prove a
distinguished success. Yours truly,
T. E. ROESSLE.
