HONESTY IS APPHECIATED.
The Times tnanks the citizens of North
east Washington for the praise they be
stowed on its work at their meeting last
night. It is, indeed, dangerous to publish
an honest newspaper, but such a course
becomes easy when it is recognized and
approved by a civic organization of toe
strength and practical vitality of the North
east Washington Citizens' Association.
Such words as were besUiwed on The
Times last night pjts It under the necessity
of redoubling its endeavors for the good of
the people of Washington.
SUPHK3IE HENCII VACANCY.
One of the f list and most important duties
of President Cleveland after Congress con
venes will be the nomination of a Jurllce
of the Supreme Court of the United States,
to fill the vacancy caused by the death of
Justice Jackson. It is safe to assume tbe
nomination will not now be made before the
Senate meets, as the President has not pre
vious to this time taken advantage of bis
privilege to make a recess appointment.
Rumor has mentioned many names for
the place. The country Is lo be congratula
ted that neither one of several of those
names has been mentioned by the chief ex
ecutive. There is an impression abroad
that too much sentiment, too much per
sonal regard, loo much party Influence, and
probably too much executive chagrin has
actuated Presidents in sonic of their more
recent appointments to this bigii place.
While Ihe Supreme Bench .sits In Judgment
upon all the public as the law-court of final
resort, the public is tlie moral court of last
resort, and passes keen and lasting Judg
ment upon the Judges; and It must be said
tbat the frequent changes In the personnel
of the bench in the last decade of years has
not greatly elevated the body as a whole
In tbe esteem of tbat absolute popular
bench, which ever bos tbe last word in a. re
Democrats in the strict party sense are
somewhat lacking In force these days. It
is not probable tbat a battle will be waged
against any nomination the President may
see fit to send to the Senate,' whether be be
Goo Goo or a cuckoo. MV. Hill is some
what subdued. But tbe whole country
will hope tbat Mr. Cleveland will select a
'kreat Jurist outside of Congress, outside of
tfTRO K.jfeaO Jff f!?r
politics, outside of the Influence of cor
porations, for his legal learning, judicial
poise, probity and dignity, and set aside all
Whether Mr. Cleveland be nominated for
a fourth time or not for tbe Presidential
office, this will probably be bis last chance
to appoint a Justice of the Supreme Bench,
and he should make bis selection a lasting
monument of bis Administration.
BOARD OF TRADE HEPOHTS.
The Board of Trade at Its meeting last
night did little else than make a paper
record as a great conservator of public
good. The reports of its scvcrnlcommlt
tces bristle with recommendations and
glow Willi reforms to be accomplished, but
a review of the work really done fails to
show a single act wherein good results
have been achieved for tbe general public
The committee on public schools failed
to obtain a sufficient appropriation from
Congress to accommodate all our scholars
The free library project was a failure.
The committee on briCges did not secure
the passage of the memorial bridge bill.
Nothing was done to Increase the number
of our industries.
No improvements were made on our
parks and public, reservations.
The effort to secure funds for a municipal
building was unsuccessful.
The much vaunted attempt to have the
gamblers across the river prosecuted ended
in a fizzle.
Aside from tbe vigorous measures
adopted to secure the passage of the seven-million-dollar-bond
bill, tbe record of the
Board of Trade for tbe last year is prin
cipally one of banquets and receptions.
This criticism is made without prejudice
or desire to offend. As a medium through
which to build up our city, to bring about
needed Improvements, and prosecute muni
cipal reforms there could he no more effect
ive organization than our Board of Trade.
It embraces the brightest and best business
minds of Washington, but for some reason
a few are allowed to guide Its affairs to
further their own personal interests. There
fore no good results were obtained.
This community needs and must have
cheaper gas and electric lighting.
The Division should be removed, espe
cially now that decent people will want to
visit our new postoffice building.
Tbe Rock Creek and James Creek open
sewers should be abolished.

there are other things tn which the Board
of Trade as a promoter of public weal
might profitably turn its attention.
And under no circumstanccs-sLoutd the
Board nf Trade attempt to force on the
public a bond issue tbat is intended to Im
prove private property at the expense of
the general taxpayer.

competition with Gibson as a champion
of the rights of canvasback, tar'pln and
yams. In this be is knee plus ulster, as
some of the most classical of his constit
uents would descrilie him.
Republicans are somewhat sca'ce on the
East'n Sho", even in these days when Re
publicans growon cranberry bushes. Since

Really it is wholly unnecessary that a
Senator should come from the East'n Sho
to have the requisite appreciation of can
vasuack, tar'pin and yams. Other loyal
and distinguished Mnrylanders, even from
so far West as Cumberland, have made a
profound st udyof the moral and intellectual

X.ATEST FROM KENTUCKY.
After all it seems tbat the Republicans
have 'failed to secure absolute control of
the Kentucky legislature. Last reports from
the Slate of handsome women and men, thor
oughbred race horses, Bourbon whisky and
statesmen relate tbat Republicans and
Democrats each have sixty-eight votes on
joint ballot, and tlrat the Populists have
two votes. Therefore, if Republicans and
Democrats stand loyal to their party the
Populists can dictate the election of a
United States Senator.
Whether that excellent politician and In
teresting statesman. Senator Blackburn,
has had a hand in thus almost, and possi
bly altogether, pulling his own chestnuts
out of the fire does not yet appear on the
surface of affairs. Certain it Is, however,
that the earlier estimates from some of
those mountain counties whose great indus
try lu the production of homespun flaxen
cloths, woven upon ancient looms by the
fair hands of mountain maidens, has been
made famous by Blackburn, have been found
faulty, and Democrats appear where Repub
licans were supposed to have had a cinch.
Blackburn Introduced these wonderful weav
lngs to the outside world, and In those coun
ties his name is Dens and not Dennis. Ap
parently these counties have given the elo-quentSenatoragleainofbopeforrc-elecUon.
The two Populists are In a highly Inter
esting position. Possibly they are so new
to the business as not to know what they
are there for, and that a Webb Flanagan
will'hare to appear upoa tbe scene and make
adiagraiaforthem. They cannot expect to
electa Populist. They can hardly hope even
to be dishonest, though their opportunity
In no"bther State are the relations of
parties so delightfully interesting, and it
may be written down as a conspicuous truth
that the sentiment of Republicans ln'Wash
lugton is expressive of a pretty unanimous
hope that if the Republicans cannot suc
ceed Blackburn's mantle should fall upon no
ether shoulders than his own. ..
Information that la constantly reaching
Washington from various points of the
compass suggests a rapid end-of-the-cen-tury
progrcssiveness in other cities that
is almost Insulting. Borne, and among them
even our ancient and conservative suburb
of Baltimore, aro transferring overhead
wires to subterranean conduits. Others are
prohibiting street cars drawn by horses.
In the fair city of Detroit, on Saturday,
the last time-worn horse car made Its last
trip and was broken up by relic seekers,
who desired a memento of the good old
days forever past.
Washington apparently has no ambition
to keep pace with this boasting, bombas
tic offensive spirit of progress. Very
Utile of it lias so far intruded, and appar
ently there will belittle more for some years
to come. Two street cur companies have
presumed to dispense with horses, and an
other is in a slow progress of transmuta
tion in the same direction, but that Is all.

Last and most delightful of all, the one

or 'i unlng Forks,
In TfejrgtF tbe" revival of public Interest
utheKeeley motor, a representative of tbe
Philadelphia Ledger has had a talk with tbe
Inventor, and was favored with some ex
A round steel bar was sho wnjhe reporter,
said to be solid except for a minute hole
bored longitudinally through It, and an
other larger hole near one end bored from
side to side. The bar was about an inch
and a hair thick and eight Inches long.
It bad been "vitalized," and its propor
tions had been calculated to a nicety. Tills
bar, when struck lightly at one end or tbe
finger, vibrated to a -pitch like a cathedral
bell; when struck upon the lioor at the
other end It gave a sound at a high pitch.
Both these vibrations cuntluued for some
time. Mr. Kccley'sown words in explana
"By vitalizing this bar It produces a
molecular oscillation of three times the
diameter of the molecule, whereas under
ordinary circumstances with a piece uf
forged steel tbe oscillation is only ouc-third
of Its diameter, 40,000 times a second,
which is perfectly inaudible to the car. Uy
Increasing tbe magnitude of the vibrations
by tbe sensitizing process to three times
tbe diameter it gives a molecular swing tbat
brings out an oscillation tbat produces a
chord with three different notes."
That is -quite understandable if we could
only know what the sensitizing process is.
The reporter endeavored to fathom this
mystery, and was shown a large hook filled
with heavy card board plates, eacli of which
was a treatise lu itself, all drawn wllh a
pen by Mr.Kceley with beautiful exactness.
Nearly every one of these plates had one or
more bars or music, showing the dominant
chords or vibrations whichgoverned certain
The inscriptions on the ZunI tablets would
have been quite as plain to the reporter,
and Mr. Keeley kindly enlightened him as
lo their meaning. In explanation or one or
the simpler charts, Mr. Keeley said
"The chord ot polar negation, so far as
this sympathetic, research Is concernc-d.
proves conclusively that the chord of the
neutral center of the polar attractive cur
rents or the earth represents the sympa
thetic chord of B-riat, third octnvc. one
oue-hundredtb of a note below the octave,
according to sympathetic subdivision."
The rcpotlcr could not dispute it. in fact,
he did not even have the presumption to
suggest that it might be E-flal. as bugles
are tuned, at.d thus In pnrt account for tho
ancient phenomenon before referred to.
He simply assumed that a man who had de
voted a lifetime to jhe study or vibrations
knew whereof he siioke. and that it was
the part or widoni to accept his statements
With this preliminary education In theory,
shown to the reporter by some experimental
apparatus which Mr. Ketiey had devised.
A disk-shaped apparatus was shown, aliout
eighteen Inches lu diameter and two inches
thick, covered with brass and divided Into
segments. . '
..Upon its face .were three tuning-forks,
with heavy tines,- two of the same pitch, a cd
the third "a half note below. On the lower
edge was a small detachable piece of brass,
with two. small narrow strips of steel fas
tened to it. A brass cap, Ilkethc top of n
fruit Jar. filled even full-with an amalgam

It might le called), wasau. iron, weight
of" 140 pounds.
The reporter spplieel sevrral'wcil known
tests for, magnetism, so-called, bat the
usual rc-ippnses were riot forthcoming. Mr.
Keeley struck the three tuning forks In
succesioc, the half tone second in order,
and the attraction ceased and the dik with
its weight fell. On application the disk
was not attraeted,.nor could any evidences
of magnetism be discovered. The forks
"ncre again struck, the disk was applied, and
il wasagalnattracteil and supported its Iron
weight. Vrhe reporter confessed that tills
was not in accordance with nny experience
Another test somewhat more moving,
and certainly not easier of solution, was
made with a glass Jar, 41 inches high and
one foot in diameter, standing on glass,
filled with what Mr. Keeley said was
water, covered witli a cap, in which were
said to be copper and platinum strips re
sponsive to certnln vibrations. In the
bottom of the Jar was one of tbe disks
before referred to standing on edge, ako
a metal liall the size of an orange, said to
be rilled with shot.
Mr. Keeley connected the cap of this Jar
by a platinum wire with a sympathetic
resonator: This was a hollow brass ball,
about eight or ten Inches in diameter,
from one side of which protruded a straight
cylindrical handle which turned freely
on Its axis.
When worked by band It withdrew, or
pushed in, an iron bar inclosed In the
handle, and acted apparently like a switch
to produce the desired combinations. A
small horn-like trumpet with several con
volutions was attached to the ball, ako
three scales with a centerpiece, into
which were thrust very many steel pins
of different length, in size like knitting
needles, all lying in the same plane and
looking like porcupine quills. These when
struck gave the notes of the scale, one
dlatonlCr one harmonic, and one attune
In fiflhsn(thls from memory).
Mr. Keeley then placed a disk on top of tbe
Jar, like,,thedisk at the bottom. He then
struck different wires on the scales and
turaed his switch until he bad struck tbe
sympathetic chord to which the disks re
sponded, when thelowerdiskstarted slowly
imwnrdhrbbeh the water, followed br the
round, shotted weight, ami both, with even
motion, went to the top of tbe Jar with a
small bump; such as an apple might give,
and remained there. ByEtrlkingothcrnotcs;
apparently, they moved slowly down.
In this connection Mr. Keeley said that he
believed, that within two years he would
be running the street cars of this city with
this ejectment, or push process, which is
the system devised for tbe airship.
The device will be attached to the car;
bo connection will be made to tbe running
gear. The speed will be controlled by a
Bwltch, which Mr.Kecley hasspent years in
perfecting, and which will give seven differ
ent rates of speed. No charging up of the
apparatus is necessary..
'The sympathetic vibrations of the ether
corresponding to the various points of tbe
switch, will push 'the cars over the tracks,
and a similar apparatus placed In an ocean
vessel Is expected to push it across the
ocean, without the intervention -or paddle
wheels or screws.

YON BOETTICHER SCAIDAL
flow Prince Bismarck las Merely
Pursued Bis Valued Old Frieal
If the Courtly Baron Suffers In Con
nection With the Cuelph Fund the
Prince Should Be Included.
Every body at Berlin Is sorry for poor old
Baron von Boetticher, whose name is once
more on every tongue in connection with
the money granted to hlra out iif the
Guelph fund by Prince Bismarck years and
The whole affair is of an unphasant
character and reflects ditcredlt upon ev
ery one concerned. The so-called Gneiph
fund is the private fortuneof the late King
of Hanover, which the Prussian government
seized shortly after the annexation of his
use of it to promote an Insurrectionary
movement at Hanover with a view ! his
rcidoratkin to the thrcne. It was placed
under the control of Prince Bismarck and
ought naturally to have been restored to
the royal bouse of Hanover the very mo
ment that all question of open and even
setret hostility ceased.
Instead of this the prince kept it, per
mitted no supervision or control of its ad
ministration either by the imperial reieh
stag or by the Prussian diet, and admit
tedly used the major portion of the income
which it yielded to subsidize the press nt
Lome and abroad, several Parisian jiapers
receiving handsome allowances from the
prince for publishing articles written in
the sense tbat be directed.
To such'an extent was this the case that
the Guelph fund became known as the
"re-ptlle fund," owing to its being used
for e-orrupting and rendering innocuous the
"reptiles of the press."
Some time in the '70s Baron von Boet
ticher, who was at the time minister of
the interior and one of Bismarck's most
faithful and entirely devoted lieutenants,
a lieutenant so completely suliservlent to
thegreat chancellor that 1 haveseenhlm on
several occasions kiss tbj; latter's hand,
came to the prince and Informed him that
be would be i-oiupelled to resign his port
folio, owing to tbe fact that his father-in-law,
a banker of the name of Berg, at
Stralsund, bad not only liecome bankrupt,
but was about to be criminally indicted
for fraud and even on still more serious
Bismarck, being of tbe opinion lhat the
services ot Baron von Boetticher were indis
pensable to bim. Inquired what sum would
be requisite to save Berg from the criminal
courts, and was Informed tbat about
400,000 marks would preserve him from
criminal indictment, while about another
500,000 marks would enable bim to tide
over bis bankruptcy.
Bismarck on tbe following day handed
the baron the money needed to protect
bis father-in-law from the criminal courts,
and shortly afterward supplied bim with
the cash to enable the banker to erred a
satisractory and honorable settlement of
his affairs. Bismarck himself declares
tbat the money was advanced by him out
of the Guelph fund, while Von Bocttliber.
who admits having received it, asserts that
he took it under tbe Impression that il was
a present from old Emperor William.
Nothing was heard about the matter un
til tbe time of Bismarck's overthrow. It
may be remembered that the dispute be
tween the prince and the Emperor which
brought about the climax of the trouble
between the two was in connection with
the young monarch's well-intentioned
scheme of an international congre-ss for the
purpose of improvlns the condition of labor.
The prince declined to have anything todo
with the scheme, and denounced it as ridicu
lous.. Moreover, he called upon his followers
and adherents to do the same. That is to
say, to take up the cudgeis against the
Emperor lu the matter.
This Baron von Boetticher at the last mo
ment refused to do, declaring that, bound
as lie was to the chancellor by ties of friend
ship and gratitude, he could never assist
the prince in any conflict against the sov
ereign. Bismarck rounded upon Boetticher, de
nounced him in the most bitter of terms as
treacherous and ungrateful and accused
bim ot having promoted the 'Emperor's an
tagonism toward himself. Finding that
these charges only served to draw the
young Emperor ne-arer to old Boetticher, he
published In his paper, the Hamburg News,
the story of how lie had helped to preserve
that statesman from being compelled to
surrender office and bis family from dis
grace and ruin. '
His object was to show how deeply un
grateful Vou Boetticher had been, and like
wise, incidentally, to mention tbat Von
Boetticher had used government money for
private and personal ends, entirely blind
to the fact that he himself was acknowl
edging by thesechargesthathehad made an
Improper use of the fund Intrusted to Ids
keeping, and to which neither be nor the
Prussiangovernment had a shadow of right.
He even went so far as tolnslnuate In his
newspaper that Von Boetticher might yet
be called upon, not In the clvli,.but In tbe
criminal courts, to answer for the misap
propriation of government funds.
Nobody In the government service, or
evenMn political life, pays the slightest at
tention to these accusations ofErince Bis
marck as far as Baron Ton Boetticher Is
concerned. But the Socialist press and
party naturally are endeavoring to make

Here isa Uttlestory for the benefit of our
new women. Two young ladles, wearing
bloomers, in token of their "advanced"
views, had troubieabout gaining admission
to a New York theater. At first, indeed,
the bos office keeper flatly refused to take
their money, and oneof them went awayin
a huff. The second damsel, however, was
more pertinacious, and, by a threat of tak
ing legal proceedings, frightened the man
into giving her a ticket. Her appearance
among her normally clad sisters In the
auditorium caused a mild sensation.
While the bloomer qnestloo is yet raging,
and the bloomer seems to be slowly settling
like a deflated balloon, accounts come
from many quarters or daring experiments
in bloomers. Evidently the young women
who are the heated advocates of the ex
piring bloomer are determined to attract
attention to themselves, as Is shown by
thisa sample item froma Brooklyn paper.
It says that one day last week two plump
and dashing young women rode through
Trospect Park wearing skin-tight black
knickerbockers, fastened at the knee wllh
four peart pueMcs. Below they wore
black silk stockings and black Oxford
shoes with silver buckles. They wore
short Eton jackets of black cloth, barely
covering the hips, men's shirt fronts,
standing collars and black club ties. On
their heads they wore black felt derby
liats. They paralyzed the rrospect Park
There are few hills In New York city.
In fact, a stranger when he stnnds on the
crest of Murray hill never suspects the
fact until he is told of it, says a San
Francisco publication. Therefore the cy
clists do not find many grades to vex
them. On tbe Itiversidc drive, however,
at One hundred and firs! street, near Grant's
tomb, there Is what Is probably the highest
hill in New York. In San Francisco it
would be considered only a "slight rise,"
yet the damsels of New York find it diffi
cult to climb this hill. The sturdy maid
ens of San Francisco, with the muscles of
their limbs developed by our soaring hills,
would sneer ;t the hill on the Riverside
drive. But the New York maidenshavehad
so much trouble over it that two young
men have posted themselves at the feiot
of the hill and tow the perspiring maidens
up by means or a strap, receiving for
their trouble a small fee at the top.
