The conference of Democrats favorable
to the free coinage of silver lias posted, not
like a slilp In the darkness, but as a vessel
In that dim, shadowy, uncertain period
which divides night and day. It was In no
sense of the word a clearly outlined, sta
tionary, determinable object, but a sort
of dimly lighted panorama, which leaves
the observer weary-eyed and dissatisfied
as to Its destiny.
The fact that a strong address to the
American people was promulgated docs not
In itself, politicians here say, constitute
an element of strength , as t he Bam? declara
tion of principles and set of resolutions
could hae been prepared with equal igor
and fortuitous effect by one man, unaided
and alone, lie could at. the same time, and
with equal propriety, have assumed to rep
resent the great Democratic party. But
assumption is not authority.
It docs not require an cxiwrt mathemati
cian to develop the fact that the so-called
silver conference ivos hi nowise a repre
sentative gathering of Democrats. The
roster ot the meeting shows that a total of
eighty-five members were In attendance.
These Include many who have lost (heir

Democrats will have In the next Ilnure
when the roll Is called 104 Members out
of a total of 356. Of this number seven
of them were present in the conference, the
jiost conspicuous ot them being Cox, of
Tennessee, Livingston, of Georgia, and
Jones, of Virginia. Seven as compared to
104 leaes an enormously large propor

lower branch of Congress entirely with

Messrs. Harris, Jones 'of Arkansas, Call

Four as against thirty three makes the per
centage ot representation a trifle out of
all due proportion.
ASSUMPTION OF POWER.
In other words eleven men came to this
city and assume to net for a total dele
gation In Congress of 141 charged with
fighting the battles and protecting the
Interests otniorc than 6,000,000 Demo
cratic voters Thus It necessitates a
considerable expansion ot the imagina
tion to accept as a finality the assertion
that the meeting just concluded was in
every sense of the word a representative
one " -
'The question of the zeal or conscientious
ness of those In attendance does not enter
Into the calculation. The convictions of
one man, or an) number of men, are
not binding upon their associates In a
political party where the majority rule,
and hence the deduction must be drawn
by the general public that the conference
co aid under no possibility be construed
as hailng a right to speak for the great
party of which the) form such a small
As a matter of fact, the only object
attained by the meeting was the evolving
of a declaration of principles similar to
dozens of tuch documents, as are. almost
daily, at this season of the year, adopted
by some State, county or municipal con
vention and sent broadcast to tho people
There is nothing strikingly original or
suggestive in the papers prepared.
In addition to this, a number of gentle
men were afforded an opportunity of making
speeches Tills was equally harmless with
the resolutions adopted This will make
antl-campaigu literature of a mild type,
and In all human probability will not
change one opinion or influence one vote
nTtbe next election.
Auti silver Democrats say that to sum
up the actual benefit to follow the corf
ference it can be stated In a single word
nothing. It was made to serve the purpose
of a safety vah e for those present. The
'supercharged delegates temporarily In
fected the atmosphere with their indigna
tion and enthusiasm.
Then anadjourrauent was effected ,and in
a few long summer days the whole matter
will have been forgotten. It Is a bet of
gold eagles to hickory nuts that the recent
conference will not influence one vote In

STREET CAR MAILS.
Postmaster Wlllett's Views On tbe
Service for Washington.
A communication was received at the
office of the Bccond Assistant Postmaster
General to-day from tbe Columbia Heights
Citizens' Association, in which the request
was made that a tliuilti" tercet car mall
system to that given Boston, New Tork,
St. Louis and other large cities be pro
vided for Washington
The Idea conveyed Is the introduction
here of a street rilway mail eervice, in
which the Washington & Georgetown Street
Car line can be utilized, thus giving Co
lumbia Heights and Mount Pleasant the
benefit of tbo early receipt of the mall
and avoid tbe toes ot time that Is now
complained of by the residents of those
localities. Tbe Second Afslftnut Post
master General is absent from the cit) and
will be until September 1, therefore no
action on tbe communication will be
taken until bis return.
A Times reporter saw Postmaster Wille-tt
to-day and inquired ot bim what action
be would take in they matter, as a com
munication similar to the onesent fie Post
master General was received by bim.
Mr. Wliletr said -his office would give
the people of Moitac Pleasant and Col
lumbla Heights the best service possible
and tbatthc question was b'iug considered
at this time. Already there had been pro
vided .first-class service to out of town
places, and that the mall was now served
to Tenuallytonn and Betbesda. At Ten
nallytown and Catholic Universitr there
arc carriers and lnhls' opinion the service
to the District line was good.
Anacostla, he said, is the only place
neglected. It is the Jargest fourth-class
office in the District, more people living
living tbere than At any of. the suburban
He reiterated thatrthe remote points
of the District .were getting good service
wherever tbecars run: Only that Anacostla
has not a carrier.
Tbe Washington post-office, he said,
is reaching out and so far as the communi
cation received is concerned the Second
Assistant Postmaster General will give
It proper attoalion as well as himself.
The fact is ov erlooked, he said, that to
give the service desired by the citizens
committee money will be required and
that is an Important consideration.

TANGLES FOR THE COURTS
Knotty Legal Pointed Involved in
Street Extension Suits.
Endless Litigation Promised Over tbe
Proposed Flan as It Now
The proposed street extension ot Wash
lngtonnslatddownlntheplanssubmlttedby the Commissioners, will undoubtedly re
sult in more litigation in event any attempt
is made to carry it into effect, than anything
that has ever been ordered by a legislative
body. The bottle royal will be Inaugurated
with the Initial skirmish ot Armory H. Tin
glo, of Spring road, when his suit enjoin
ing the Oommissloners from canning out
their plan is heard In court next Monday.
A prominent lawyer. In discussing Uje
matter tills morning, said:
"The proxpect of long and intricate legal
battles before the dream of the future Wash
ington is realized. Is strong. What should
have been done In Gov. Shepherd's time
Is now contemplated and Is being done.
The delay has already proven disastrous
and 1 inger putting aside or the matter
will prove fatal. Washington must grow,
and her growth must be prov ided f or. Why
delay the matter longer?
"Just as lu this approaching initiatory
case, there arc hundreds of others where It
would seem that irreparable hardships are
to be wrought upon the owners ot property.
Scntlmentnllsm cannot enter Into the af
be confined and crannied within the Wash
ington of the present The outcome ot this
one suit will properly determine whether
the rule of eminent domain shall still hold
and this city shall be broadened Intoacrown
lng metropolis for a great republic, or
wlicthcr the sentimental associations of
some of the living properly owners or the
Dlstrictshall hamper the progress ot the
"In the Tlnglu case I understand the
pretty tour acres and more that have been
the home of the complainants for upward ot
a third or a century is to be almost com
pletely wiped out, leaving them three
wedge-shaped tracts ot land only a frac
tion as largo us what they now own Of
course it looks like a hardship
"But the government pays themfor what
land It takes and the very pretence or new
streets cnbjnces the value of the remaining
tracts until each or them is worth as much
as the whole or tbo original The house
associations have been martyred tor the
good ot tbe community'.
"Another thing, their lard lies immedi
ately lu the direction ot the city's most
rapid growth at present, and the sooner
some definite understanding Is reached
In regard to that section ot tho city the
"As I understand it, there is another
feature ot Interest in connection with the
proposed street extension. The law pro
vides that In a tub-dlvlslon when a city
street Is extended in conformity with the
new plan and It fails to coincide with
an extension already laid down, by the
founder or the addition, tho latter street
shall be abandoned, to far as the govern
ment Is coocen-cd.
"That Is, the Government will not lon
ger look out for the Improvement or pres
ervation of the old thoroughfare, which
reverts to the property-owners along it.
This law is to take, effect upon tbe filing
of the plats, and It Is easy to conceive tbe
rattier delicate questions that may grow
out ot it In the event bait tbe property
owners vote to do one thing and half vote
for another along a certain block."
