SEAHC1I FOU A SYSTEM.
Recent juokcts or the Commissioners and
other officials of the District government
In search or a garbage sj&tem seem so far
barren of results They have been North,
East, South and West, and from all Indi
cations Washington Is no nearer a modern
sanitary mtlbod of ditpSsi ng of its garbage
tlian it was before.
The pressing need of some adequate
system is shown by the complaints of non
colUfCtlon daily pouring In. This la above
all the season when the garbage should
not lie neglected. Washington Justly en
Joys the reputation of one of the healthiest
or the larger cities, but nccumlatlng
plies or decaying refuse, neglected by the
collectors, are not conducive to a continu
ance or this fortunate condition. A gar
bage system is wanted, and the authorities
cannot be too quick iu fixing upon one com
mensurate with the needs of the Capital.
It is not a pleasant task to expose the
shortcomings of neighbors who in all the
ordinary avenues or Intercourse are quite
delightful and corumendaUe. It- is tho
Imperative doty of The Times, however, to
present in plain and emphatic language the
story or tho Star's flop upon the trolley
question, as 'Was done- In The Morafag
It. 13 necissary that the public should
clearly understand the Star's position The
Times, therefore, rlerate that that paper
opposed the overhead trolley only at a time
wheu It was thought there was so danger of
successful attack upon It, even thoogh. It
was illegally maintained, and then eeased
Its criticisms and began to defend anil com

That this shameless bypoericy was di

fact. The Star doubtless, congratulated
it self that, like- old Joey Bagttock, it
was "devilish sly- in the pretense ot
virtuous indignation agarose the trolley

at ground-flour prices and turning a

of ttw National Capital cannot be kept
too prominently before the pubUcy nor

Of ail thrf meannesses of Congress hi it
-trdatment- of tbf District fhterestr, this'
natter of iusufneient appropriation for
the care of the trees is the most shameful.
Time and" time again. It has- been- demon
strated" that the trees were suffering from
the ravages df insect pests, and every
effort has been made to bring Contrrees to

all to uo avail. With clockwork, regu

until this year the local authorities are
more criivptedl than. ever.
It is an anomaly that herein Washington,

. nothing can be done to preserve the great
natural bauly of t be capital ot the country.
The bugs that are-afar otrare very utu-r-esllng

STHAXiTE T1HCKS OF DESTTSTY.
It Is an old superstition that auy occur
rence ot a peculiar or tragic character will
be ;oou followed bj ethers similar, and o
U raugely doe t his ocaislonallr ha ppen tha t
even the i-ki optical nie almost led tn the
conclusion that such incidents are due to
j-oruc mystcriouclaw and not to mere coin
cidence Persons huhilng- th's belief will eagerly
quote the wreck, ota building In Xe w York
the other day, which was aloiif lmincdi
att Is followed by two other similar in
cidents, though they were so trivial by
caoiparisou mat they passed w Uh slight
ilore striking than any recent co'ncidence,
however, is the similarity of the tragic,
cases of Green. " Chicago," president of a
great lumber company, and. ot Thomas
Ilovcmien, the noted aitlst. A boat In
which 3Ir. Greeu aad his coachman were
rowingr- was capsi2cd and Green lost his
life in the. attempt to save that ot his
coachman Both were drowned. Hbvcu
deu attempted yesterday to rescue a Uttlu
girl who ran in front ot an approaching
railway traiu and both were killed.
Apart from the question whether such
groups of coincidences aro governed by
some mv stenuus law, or whether they are
due to mere chances. It may be said that Mr.
Haves-rcn's death will bring tho keenest
feillng of sorrow to the hearts of a vast
mass of people, both lu America and In
Europe. iVw artists of the day excel him
lu facility of production, and. everything
he touched breathed with loftiness of sen
timent Nearly all of his paintings have
beeu reproduced in engravings or etchings,
and In this form have made him known to
mlinonswhohod not access to the originals.
That snr-h a man should meet such a terrible
fate almost provokes a bitter protest
against the mysterious powers which are
supposed to hold In their keeping allhuman
"Assume a virtue if you Lave It not" Is
the Star's lavortte- Shakespearian quota
tion. As a kindergarten lesson In astronomy
It may be statist that our esteemed even
ing contemporary does not belong to any
known planetary system. It Is a. fixed
It Is questionable If the Supreme Bench
would be stroug enough to support two
such poetic figures as Chief Justice Puller
and the always gentle and Idealistic Post
master General Wilson.
The Times may be Interfering with
Sheriff Palmer's business, as that gentle
man asserts, but. if so. It Is because the
sheriff neglects to interfere with the busi
ness of several other fallows.
Doubtless the Star wilt echo the plain
tive wall oC Sheriff Palmer that The
Times Is Interfering with its busbies. The
great public lite that sort of interference,
however, and therefore The Times will
try to endure In a philosophical and opti
mistic way Uie wrath of the ancient organ
of the trolley aggregatinn and of the
sheriff of ancient Alexandria County.
The shrewdest political move made In
late years is- (he attempt of the stngle tax

a third term, if this Is his deeerminatjon.
And. we have no doubt that such is his de
termination, for he- mtrs know- that the

Presidential terms to any one. He should
therefore put the disturbing question to
