TTin l'LACE FOlt CONVENTIONS.
Washington's fame is already national
as a spot where more conventions are
held annually than In any other city of
tbe world, and a new Illustration of this
fact Is found In the presence lo-Jay of not
less than five conventions, made up eif
delegates from as many organizations.
Of course, (here Is a wide diversity of
purpose between the National Gospel
Mission Workers, the National Spiritualists'
Association of tbe United Stales and
Canada, the Liquor Dealers' Association,
and the Sons and Daughters of Moses, but
this diversity merely emphasizes the truth
that the National Capital is the logical
place for congresses of all denominations,
organizations, creeds, .colors, and ambi
tions. The great Episcopalian organization,
after a warm contest at Minneapolis, could
select no other city than Washington for
its next triennial meeting of bishops and
deputies; and so it goes. It is reasonable.
Inevitable and sentimental that it should
be so, and that the on-coming conventions
shoald 5 early grow more numerous.
A I'OI'DLAIt HE-ELECTION.
The reelection last night ot President
Tucker by the Northeast Citizens' Asso
ciation is a rebuke to those who oppose
the aggressive fight he is making against
the grade-crossing abuse and a complete
vindication of. bis admlnistration'sof the
affairs of trie association daring the past
year. Northeast Washington can never
reach its full limit ot prosperity until cither
Hie Baltimore and Ohio Railroad ceases to
use its tracks in that part of the city as a
switch yard or the deadly grade crossing
is abolished. The danger attending the
travel to and from the main part of the
city restricts its growth to a certain ex
tent, and instead of lessening its efforts
to obtain relief the association should
labor still more vigorously to be freed
from the Iron colls tliat arc strangling the
progress of that part of Washington.
Tile history of the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad In Washington shows that Its es
timate of human life is small compared to
its desire to economize. For years, until
recently, its grade crossings have practi
cally lievn withoutwatchmen. The erforts
of the Northeast Citizens Association,
backed up by The Times, has to an extent
compelled the company to remedy the evil,
but it cannot be eradicated except by abol
Ishing the crossings. When that is done
the value ot property in that section of the
city will immediately double and It will
bei-ome as popular for residence purposes
as that which Joins it on the other side
f the railroad tracks.
NAVAL rniZE FIGHTING.
That is a most extraordinary story, and
One almost beyond belief, which Is pub
lished in The Times this evening, descrip
tive of a prize fight between two marines
upon the flagship New York, now lying In
Until an official investigation be ordered
the public will hope there is a mistake
somewhere, as tt Is almost Inconceivable
that officers in command of the New Tort
and Texas, two vessels ot tbe United States
Kavy, would place their positions and
reputations in Jeopardy for the sake of
witnessing a bit' of brutal amusement.
It the accounts be correct, one of tbe tby
contestants was almost killed, and this I
fact will add weight to the heinous char
acter of the offense. Apparently, the tiffl
ccrs of all the naval vessels in Hampton
Roads were patrons of the fight, and
granted leave to witness It to as many
of their crews as possible.
Unless the story be promptly denied a
sensational official Investigation must
seem to be in near prospect.
Special cable dispatches give the im
portant information that Senator Henry
Cqbot Lodge is in .Madrid, and that be has
had conferences With Canovas Del Castillo
in regard to the Cuban situation.
Whether Senator Lodge, who is a some
what exclusive person, is competent to
eiieak for the people of tho United States
cunuot be stated; but it he knows what to
say, then it is certain that he has told
Senor Canovas Del Castillo that the free
people of all American republics are as one
man in favor of Cuban Independence.
Nothing Is more sure to happen than that
when Congress meets a Joint resolution ot
House and Senate will be promptly adopted
giving the Administration backbone, that
it now seems to lack, necessary to enable
it to recognize the belligerent rights of the
struggling Cubans. If Mr. Lodge, who is
Just fclightly afflicted with snobbery when
he lands himself among foreign big-wigs,
has given Senor Castillo any other view ot
American sentiment, he will find him
self speedily In contempt at the Spanish
Patriotic feeling is growing both in Cuba
and in all the Americas. The battling reb-.
els arc constantly receiving imiwtant ac
cessions of strength. Expressions of sym
pathy in the United Stati'3 grows louder
and more eloquent, eyery day. Mass meet
ings, which nill soon be held In Washing
ton and many other cities, will vastly em
phasize all that has already been said.
Senor Canovas Del Castillo ni-ed not listen
to Senator Lodge, or any other man, to
learn the feeling in America.
MOItMONS AND POLITICS.
In fo far as the Mormon religion is a
spiritual theory or philosophy no one will
rind, fault with It, whetherit came to Joseph
Smith by special revelation or whether it
was founded upon a fancy sketch written
by an eccentric Ohio man for his own
amusement. That is a matter for each
One feature of the religion, or of the
practice of Mormon devotees, which will
not be tolerated Is polygamy. No matter
what arguments may be drawu from the
Biblical history of nncicLt Hebrews who
are written down as especial favorites
of the Deity; no matter how pertinent the
sneer of the Mormons that their open polyg
amy is not as injurious to sr clety as the
sierct immorality w Ide spread among their
enemies; formal recognition and open and
difiant practice or polygamy will cot be
permitted In America.
The present outbreak in their own ranks
against a leadership which seems deter
mined to make the Mormon church n dic
tator In Utah politics Is a healthy sign.
The threatened revolt which may post
pone the entrance of Utali to the condition
of Statehood is but a reflection of the sen
timent of the great mass of thepcopV.- of
the whole world that the Influence of re
ligious denominations shall not be used
for partisan nor Tor church advantage.
Leaving polygamy out of the question,
tbe nrtion of the Mormon leaders In de
nouncing Democratic nominees for Rep
resentative and Senator In the United
States Congress should result In the defeat
of the scheme of the church to control Utah
politics, even if Statehood should be-defeated.
The conscience and courage ot the
Governors of Texas and of Arkansas can
not be made too conspicuous or be praUed
too highly. In the face of tremendous
pressure by a ma6S of people, both of
much Influence and no influence,. some of
whom support tho prize-fighting scheme
for the money that wqukl accrue, and
others ,or the sport of the thing. They
have held the invaders at bay and doubtless
prevented the mill from taking place in
Gov. Culberson's history is made in
connection with this matter. Gov. Clarke
declares he will use uvery means to en
force the law and that It he fails he will
resign hU office tliat some one with more
ability may take his place.
These be brave words. Gov. Clarke
looms up fully to the moral size of Gov.
Culberson, and the two stand out grandly
as cldef executives of two great States.
Other Governors nearer Washington seem
somewhat diminutive by comparison. Ap
parently they arc not shamed in the least
degree by, the brilliant example of their
Southwestern contemporaries. "
Serene In contemplation of gambling
and prize fighting In their commonwealths,
they doubtless look with pity and con
tempt on the anxiety and exertions of Govs.
Culberson and Clarke.
THE HHESLAU CONGHESS.
One of the most complimentary tilings
that can be said about the recent Congress
of German Socialists at Breslau, is that
the anarchists have nothing but condemna
tion for It. The agrarians did not get a
great deal of comfort, and as for the
anarchists they got the cold shoulder. As
a consequence a bowl bos gone up from
these worthies the burden of wliiclristhnt
the socialists have not the courage ot
their convictions, or that they arc simply
temporizing, or other equally inane ac
cusations. The programme of the German Socialist
Democratic party may fall far short ot
f perfection, but the fact that It does not suit
either the government party nor yet the
other extreme, the anarchists, would seem
to Indicate that it alms at substantial
political reforms in the Interest of greater
freedom for the masses. It appears to be
aggressive enough to work for the dimi

CAPRICIOUS AMELIE RIVES
Doe Strangely Wayward Matve WHict
Gotid KbJ EsSiif e tbe Wedd Lite.
Incidents Which Illustrate Her Dis
position, and an Explanation of
the "Quick or the Dead."
News of Amelle Rives Chanlcr's divorce
caused no surprise among her friends In
this city, writes Waiter Wellman from
Washington to tbe Chicago Times-Herald.
Miss Rives was aivvajs a woman of
caprice, wayward, fickle. When In a
normal mood she was one of the most
loving-and lovable of women, as she cer
tainly was and still is among the most
beautiful of bersex; but hercaprlclousness,
petulance and childishness tried the pa
tience of her family and her husband.
Both as a girl and as a married woman
Mrs. Cbanler often visited here, and
men and women who are connoisseurs In
feminine beauty agree that nq more fas
cinatlug woman tliaiithe Virginia authoress
was ever seen in a Washington drawing
room. An Incident of one of her visits to
this city may be taken as an Indication
of ber peculiar character. At the request
of her hostess she brought out ot her trunk
,t batch of poems written in her girlhood,
and read themtoanotherguestotthehouse,
an elderly man noted for bis "literary
Judgment. Miss Rives nnd the literary
mail were left alone, and in speaking of
the incident afterward tbe literary man
"I don't remember n word she read to
me; all I can remember Is tbe sweetness
of her voice, the charm of her presence.
She re'ad poem after poem, In a low, im
passioned voice, standing with her face
near lo mine, her ejes ablaze with poetic
fervor. To meslie seemed unearthly augelle.
I had no power to concentrate my mind
upon her words. I could see nothing,
think of nothing, but the petite, radiant,
woman by my side."
This pretty story has a sequel, and It Is in
tliesequelth.it the contrast of moodisfound.
An hour after Miss Rives bad fascinated
the elderly literary man and lulled him Into
an intellectual trance vviththechariu.s of her
voice and person, the company sat down to
dinner. There were six or eight at the ta
ble, and Miss Rives, though blmply attinsl,
was nevertheless a picture of youthful
An unbidden guest soon appeared. The
household kitten leaped to Miss Rlvts' lap
and was given a warm welcome. As the
voting poetess fondled the visitor, placed
pussy's little black nose at the edge or her
plate and fed the little mewing mouth with
dainty morsels, more than one of the guests
wished fora photograph of the pretty scene.
Suddenly there came a reaction.
Miss Rives began scolding the kitten for
some unknown cause, and to the utter as
tonishment of host nnd guests alike, the
poetess raised the offending feline by. tho
nape of lis i.eck and gave it a v Icious fling
against the side of the room. For several
moments Miss Rives had not a word to
say. The well bred hostess artfully kept
com er-sitlon going vv itliout a pause .and In a
short time the clouds left the face of theca
pneious Virginia girl, and radiant sun
shine took their place.
These were the moe-ds of geniu,, for Mrs.
Chanler Is surely a gi nitis. Her moods and
caprices were well known, not only to her
family, but to all the neighbors near her
father's hotiso at Castle Hill, Albemarle
County, Yn. The writer once visited there
and was pleased to hear tho verdict of all
the country folk as to Miss Am'Iy, as they
always called her.
They knew her odd ways, her pranks,
her mad rides astride unbroken colts and
all that, but they Idolized ber Just thesame.
To them she was an angle In human form
nn angle of charity, of mercy, of good
works. She visited the cabins of the peor
colored folk with food and picture books
and sweetmeats She nursed the sick.
She helped those -who were in trouble.
Half the money Mi's Rives received for her
first literary succesn, "The Quick or the
Dead,' was spent In making one merry
Christmas for the poor colored people
round about Castle Hill.

genius-blessed and genius-cursed voting
woman. Tliat Chanler has I cen a marvel
of patience there can be no doubt. Nor
Is there-any reason to think Mrs. Chanler
lias not made great efforts to control that
wild temperament which is a rart of her
The story of Chanlcr's courtship of
Miss Rives I know very well. He met her
at a ball at Newport and fell In love with
her. He followed her to Virginia and laid
siege to her heart. Three times was he re
jected, but the fonrth time proved the
charm, and he was the proudest and hap
piest man In America -when he won her.
The American prcss'thoughtlessly put a
cloud over Mrs. Chanler's life. II did this
with Its false conception of the motives
which bad Inspired "The Quick or the
Dead." and lry its cruel criticisms and
Jokes concerning the young authoress.
To this day many people do not know the
Inspiration for that remarkable book, and
are nol aware thatit was written while the
hand of Amelie Rives was being sought by"
John Jacob Astnr's great-grandson, and
that the motif was found m the author's
contention with herself whether or not she
should give up her girlish leleal of what a
lover should be and accept the love of her
persistent suitor. That Is the fact, and
the rivals In the book were simply elabo
rations of the living, the "quick" descend
ant of the Astors. and the "dead" ideal,
whoe memory wosfondly cherished.
The Rives homestead at Castle nill Is a
picturesque and beautiful old place ot the
fool of the Blue Rfdge. In Albemarle
county the Rives are known as one of the
oldest and most aristocratic families. Mrs.
Chanler's grandfather represented this
country as minister to France. Her father
has long been chief engineer of the Panama
Railway, ncr mother was in her clay a
famous beauty and singer. The Rives fam
ily is related to the Cabells, tbe Clajbornes,
the Pages, and other noted families in
Virginia. Mrs. Chanler's youngest sis
ter. Daisy, almost as beautiful as the au
thor of "The Quick or the Dead," also pos
sesses genius. Her drawings of horses are
most remarkable. She cannot draw any
thing else, and if a cart or saddle Is needed
to complete one of her pictures some one
else must put it in. But every horse this
fair girl puis on paper has individuality,
character, expression- This power is a
gift, a phase of that genius which runs in
the family blood.
