opportunity to prove its worthiness.
There will be no change in tho general
po'ley of The Evening Times from that
already adopted and put in force by its
morning sponror, of which it is really a
part and parcel. It Is only intended to
broaden the Held of usefulness of an already
popular newspaper, ard to gi v Its read, rs
a more lrequent, varied, and exteiideduews
The same vigor and fearlessness will be
manifested in uprooting public evils that
have characterized tho success of. The
Horning Times in eradicating the abuses
that afflict society, and no reader shall
ever have reason to think that Its columns
are controlled or Influenced by other than
a (spirit of upright Independence.
Until Tho Times was established this
spirit of honest Journalism did not prevail
In Washington. Certain rings and cliques
manufactured and moulded newspaper
bentiment, and it was not until recently
that the Influence of The Times caused a
radical change to be" made.
Whether or not this improved condition
entitles The Times to a more extended pa
tronage, the public is in position to Judge
and by that decision the future of both
the morning and evening editions of the
people's popular newspaper will be largely
STORY OK THE TIMES.
Now that Tho Evening Times is before
the public, a Miort history ot Its predecessor

The Washington Times was started
Sunday morning, March 18, 1891. und
has since been continuously issued, al
though rot without a great deal of untehVIi
effort on the part of the men who 6larted
For The Times had a definlto purpose
as its raison d'etre. That-.rpose was the
establishment of a newspaper which
should bo fair to workingnien in its news
ami editorial columns. It was believed
by organized labor in Washington that
the other daily newspapers of the city
were unfah to the creat body of people in
the District whoso interests these news
papers pretended to ferve. It was thought
that rows itmis concerning theday-to-day
dolt-gs ot this-vast constituency were
omitted from daily news columns, cither
by definite intention or, carelessness. It
was also thought that tho editorial utter
ances of these newspapers on local and
general labor topics were unjust to work
ingnien, and too .strongly colored, either
by unreasoning prejudice or private in
terests, v. hich clashed with Uio interests
It must bo admitted that this condition
was real, and the nieu who started
The Times had a clear undestanding of
the necessity of just such a newspaper.
Tbo stock jvf 'he first Tunes Company,
called The Washington Times Publishing
Company, and incorporated in Virginia,
was eagerly and unstintedly subscribed to
from the treasures or local labor organ
izations and from the private purses ot
individuals who sympathized with the
objects in view.
But the expanse of the daily issuance of a
modern nowspaper was too much for the
original capital and weekly income from
stock subscriptions. Only the hard work
and unselfi3h devotion of the first board ot
lircctors carried the jviper through this
stormy iriod. Bills wero paid from day to
day and meetings of the board of directors
were held nearly every night. Weeks
passed without a payday Hi the composing,
editorial ard business departments, and
aflcngth it was seen that the paper must
b? discontinued, oven though It meant the
loss of all the hard-earned money utilized
in its establishment and 'running expenses.
At this Juncture Congressman Charles O.
Conn, of Indiana, whose lifelong sympa
thies have been with the Interests ot la
boring men, paid the debts of the company,
including t! back salaries and wages of
employes, and put Tho Times on a solid fi
nancial footing. Although the whole
plant and good will of the newspaper then
belonged to Mr. Conn and, tho stock of The
Washington-Times Publishing Company be
came valueless, a new organization. The
Washington Times Company, was formed,
and Mr. Conn restored, without charge,
an equivalent amount of stock in tho new
company to holders of stock In 'the old
From this period the history, ot Tba
Times is well-known to Washingtonlanr.
Under Mr. Conn's editorial supervision,
this paper has endeavored to tell the
truth In every column. In Jess than a year

reforms havo not been wrought by The
Times without toe loss of a Tery courider
rub.e amount or advertisings which might
hare been retained or secured by a policy
less honest atd-Uraigbtforward. Bat tho
magnificent support given a fearless Jour
nal by the people of Washington has more
than repaid these efforts.
A e.ir ago tc-day The Times had 0,000
real circulation. This morning it has
de.ivered. at least 23,000 pald-for copies.
Such a marvelous growth is ucapproached
In Washington, and In proportion, un
paralled in the country at large. In a
newspaper field, where there are four
competitors, the youngest of them Is now
a doso cecond in local circulation and
amount of local advertising.
Such a wordcrfnl Journalistic leap can
be accounted for by no uther reason thau
the appreciation of tho American pcop'e
Tor honesty and enterprise, particularly
where It Is contrasted with a conierraUPiu
either hereditary or suspicious, as the
case may be.
With this mngnliicent record of earnest-,
ness, devotion, and beneficial results to
Inspire it. The Evening Times begins its
career to-day. The Morning Times hasi
been conducted In all its department! with
conspicuous ability. The evening edition
will do its best to emulate it in all things.
Riverside Park, a retort between the city
ot Alexandria and the sacred precincts of
Mount Vernon, was yesterday tho scene of
a disgraceful riot. Blood was spdled, beer
bottles and glauvs wero freely wielded,
and generally the Sabbath was decorated
In a "most wanton ard brutal manner.
As It has been the duty ot Tho Tunes to
frequently remark, tho lawlessness of this
vicinity is the direct remit or the outlaw
tracks In Alexandria County and their pro
longed train of attendant evils.
In that county gambling of the most
notorious and crime-breeding kind has pre
vailed Tor a long tunc. All tho efforts or
honest and law-abiding citizens to weed
itout have beenuna vailing. Ithascorrupted
people who have hitherto borne good
reputations. It has made the officers or
the law , sworn to do tbelr duty. Its willing
tools: has made the law itself a mockery,
has ruined for years to come the home
making prospects of a fair vicinity, and
has brought under its banc and blasted
young lives full of prendre.
It may bo advanced, and truthfully, fiat
the bloodshed ot yesterday was inrtigated
by Washingtonians. That is no escurc. The
crlme-'ovlng and evil-doing will go where
their predictions can havo full swing, and
the banquet for them now Is Alexandria
County and its neighborhood.
It Is the Plague spot, not only of Alex
andrians, but of the National Cupital. A
few Incidents Hie yesterday's, which un
fortunately are Iwund to occur, may do
much to eradicate the evil.
KINOS OF CHESS HEX.
Since the great tournament at London
in 1883 there has been no assembly of chess
players that will compare in importance
to that which meets to-day at the pretty
watering place of Hastings, In England.
Since 1883 several new champions have
come to the front, and the opening tourna
ment may truly bo expected to be the
greatest by far that has ever been fought.
All of the rta vers famed throughout the
world of chess, representing Great Bri
tain, Germany, Austria, Russia, France
and America, wSll take a baud, and those
devoted to this Incomparable intellectual
game will be In a condition of feverish
absorbtion and expectation until the
victor In the battle of giants shall be de
clared. Easker, the present world's cham
pion, who, however, holds the prize by
winning a single match from Stclnitz,
whose uninterrupted record of twenty
one victories, and his weak physical con
dition when .he lost his match to Easkcr
yet almost makes him champion by right;
Dr. Tcrrasch, the great German expert,
who has a wonderful record of victories;
Tehignrire, the champion ot Rus-ia;
Blockbjrne.of England, t-icchampioa blind
fold player of this day, who even excels
the late Paul Murphy in his almost super
natural feats of memory; Guusbcrg, a Hun
garian by birth, but now a naturalized
Englishman, who has defeaUd Dlackburna
In an open-eyes match; Jauowski, the sole
French representalh e, with a Polish
name, and many others of more than
Euroiean fame, will engage In the tourney.
Henry l'lllsbury, ot Brooklyn, New
York, is the only native American repre
sentative, but will undoubtedly honor his
country and leave no room for regret
among' the rapidly growing circle of ex
perts in this country.
Other Americans born abroad who will
take a hand are A. C. Wslbrndt, who is
but tnent -three )ears olu; II. E. Bird,
who is seventy-tour, but Mill a great plajer,
and James Mason, who has been In Amer
ica, but who has passed his life abroad.
It may be said in passing thtt Theodore
Tilton, the eminent American, who has
been a resident of Paris for the last ten
years, has defeated nearly all of the best
players of the social metropolis, whose head
quarters are at that most charming of
ancient hostelrles, the cafe do la Legence.
It is therefore patent that Americans
abroad have won high respect from tho
foreigners for their cunning in manipulat
ing the pieces ot this matchless game.
As Washington has many expert play
ers this tournament will possess a lively
local interest, and will undoubtedly result
In giving a new impetus to the develop
ment of greater skill among experts at the
JOHX VERSUS llODSEY.
The newspaper press ottwo worlds have
recenUy given much Fpace to the exploits
of a more or less worthy son of a more or
less worthy tire, descriVing the more or
le- idiotic dinner ghen by Mr. Rodney
Wananiaker, sou of Mr. Harrison's late
Postmaster General, to several boon com
panions of one ortwo sexes in the morally
liberal and reckless city of Paris.
Young Wananiaker invoked everything
the always plethoric cuislno of the French
metropolis affords and invented a few
combinations of his own quite us unique
In a gustotorial way as the combine against
Quay la in a political way in Wanamaker's
State ot Pennsylvania. He exercised as
vagrant an imagination In his successful
attempt to expend $20,000 on a few covers
and many courses as bis parent does to
make attractive his big shep in the Quaker
In all recent history of dissipation and
reckless extravagance nothing has-come
to the surface which quite equals tho ex
ploit of this young American Timon ot
Athens, whose, end, if he keeps the pace
he struck in Paris, may not be unlike his
ancient bu t far moreinteresUng prototype.
In pleasing contrast to the escapade
of young Wananiaker there is now wafted
from the Pacific coast a bit. ot news ot
another coUaUon, which, it not as refresh
ing in odor as gales fiom Araby, Is yet
permeated by a perfume of common sense
which argues that all the rich Amcricam
are not Wanamakers.

For months past this city has been the
headquarters ot a gang of confidenco
sharps who resort to the many swindling
tricks known to their calling to fleece the
unwary. Ono ot their favorite methods
Is to advertise in tho daily newspaper
cither for a partner to rotue questionable
scheme, or a person to enter their employ
who can post a forfeit as a certificate ot
character, which, of course, is never re
turned. Our news columns gives the ex
perience ot ono of their latest victims,
which should serve as a warning to those
who answer personals in newspapers.
It is sac to conclude that strangers
who require a deiwslt ot money for the
good conduct of iiersons seeking employ
ment are swindlers and should not be
trusted. There are Instances where prop
erly is consigned to agent when this
rule does not apply, but generally speaking
the slranger who demands the forfeit is
the one that needs the most watching.
An effort should be made by our detec
tive force to break up this nest ot sharps.
Complaints are entirely loo frequent to
allow this systemmatic method ot robbing
the unsophisticated to longer continue
and an arrest or two is necessary to preveut
their further operati&ns.

SHE WAS .NERVY.
And Didn't Shudder at tllo Thought of

(From the Buffalo Express )
She was a buslnefs-UVe woman. There
