ISIST PAINTKUS ESGAGl'U.
The Government of the United Ptales
iu the new scrips has attained unity In de
sign and tffccl. -To secure that rinull the
serines of some of the.best figure painters
in the country have l-cn enlisted nnd, of
nil those w ho 1 ompeled for the honor iv 1th
its nttc-iulnm emoluments only a few ue
cedeil. For this competition delgns were sub
mitted ranging in size from two and n half
to four feet in width and of projiortlonate
height, lliey are painted in oils and sup
posedly 111 bkick nnd white although their
rrslsllble tendency toward coloration Inva
riably as-erbt itself in the warming and
cooling of lluls. These 'Minting of course,
depict objects In smooth surfaces of color
relieving light or dark as thecane requires.
The runctlon of the engraver at once be
comes of niipreme importance. It Is to take
the design and Interpret it that the idea
of the artist may go forth to the srtltic
ami the non-artistic on its mission of culture-.
For the firm time In the history of the
world money in Itnelf Is to refine aud in
lighteu. The engraver Is now obliged not only to
re-produce the light and shade of the origi
nal design; he mut devlsedlrectlons of line
which ticM-rlbe surfaes-s gracefully and har
moniously depict te-xturcsand actually cc.n
ey a sense of color. His strength or light

Tt rossmgs and inlerwork; ids suggestions
of nearness and distance his rendition of
quality as well as color these Identify and
Individualize tin- work.
WO UK ON DESIGNS.
The new money that will pass from hand
to hand among 70.00(1,000 of people Is In
reality the work of the government engrav
ers, and they are, G. F. C. Smillie and
Charles Sclilecht. When the designs come
from the hands of the artist designer, the
lights anil shades are depicted in smooth,
unbroken surfaces of color. In translating
this Into line, a broken linear surface, the
Judgment nnd tact of the engraver arc
called Into plav to translate theso washes
Into lines. "
Each of the new notes typifies a distinct
ive idea. The five may l called "Ameri
ca," embodying the Idi-as of energy and
progress. Three groups appear side by
side on the face of the note.
The first group is an erect male figure,
driving thus; splrll.sl horses tiy reins which
are really flashes of lightning; in his right
hand he grasps from the storm clouds the
thuudi rliolts. whose energy is conveyed by
rilitmns to an ileitrle torch, grasped by
the chief figure in the central or principal
group on the face of the note. Coherency
of design is thus indiented.
The central female figure, of magnificent
proportions, is winged. She holds uloft in
her right hand an Incandescent electric
light, which Is convirtlng the energy con
veyed to her from the clouds lato direct
usefulness, enliglitening mankind. She
stands on a hemisphere which shows the.
United States; under her extended left
arm an eagle Perthes at her feet; inuu-sll
ately on her right, resting a!o on the hem
isphere. In a semi rccuiulicnt position, is a
female figure, emblematic, perhaps, of the
press announcing to the universe the
progress of civilization.
FIGUKE OF PEACE.
On the obscrv it's right, to the left of the
central figure, is a floating figure of Peace,
holding a law scroll In one hand and light
ly supporting a dove in the other. In tho
background are glimpses of the great dome
aud of the Senate wing ot tho Capitol,
localizing the design in its e-ntirety. Wal
ter Bhirlaw of New York, who nude tho
design for this note, studied art in Munich.
Ills best known work is a largo painting
called "Shee-p Shearing."
On the back of the new $5 bill will bo an
ideal wtnged head, in the center, with a V
on her breast a fancy of the engraver,
Smillie; on cither side of the ideal head
will' bo the heads of Grant and Sheridan.
For tin first time portraits of persons not
holding office underthe Governmentappear
ou its currency. The back of this and of
all the new notes was designed by Thomas
F. Morris, chief ot the engraving division
of the Bureau of Engrav ingand Printing.
The face ot the ?1 bill was designed by
Will H.lrfiw. It shows History instructing
Youth in the annals of America. Twenty
three memorial wreaths, in which are the
names of great men, appear around three
borders of the design. A distant view of
tho Washington Monument and the dome
of the Capitol fills the background. The
heads of Jefferson and Washington occupy
places in the center of the upper border.
The figure of History is on the observer's
The figure of roulh Is on History's left
and almost In the center of the design.
In the lower right-hand corner Is the
seal which Is smaller iu all the new notes.
The back ot tbc $1 note shows on the ob
server's left an allegorical winged figure;
to the observer's right are portrait heads
of Martha and George Washington. Mr.
Charles Sclilecht engraved tbc face of this
FIGUKE OF SCIENCE.
The design for the face of the new $2
bill shows Science presenting Steam and
Electricity to Commerce and Manufacture.
It was done in oil by Edwin Howi.ind
Blashfield, of New York.
The central group shows science seated,
with two graceful bos, representlngSteam
and Electricity, on either side of her. On
either side of the central group are two
graceful seated figures representing Com
merce and Manufacture.
The back of the note shows, appropri
ately enough portraits of Fulton and Morse.
The general idea of the face of the new
$10 bill, designed by William Sbirlaw, is
Ears and stalks of corn ore seen to the
observer's extreme left, In tbc upper cor
ner, and fruit In the lower corner: To the
right, toward the center of the design, is
a recumbent outli, representing tbc South;
over his bead arc oranges.
Further tot be right is Agriculture, a splen

Are In Favor of It.
A meeting of the De Jlolay Mounted Com
mamlery or Knight Templars-was held last
night for the purpose ot ril-poslng by vote
or the uuetlon ot that cotiunandery's atti
tude as to the creation of a grand ceuuiuand
erv for tho District.
Two comiuanderles, the Columbia and
Orient, had already voted for the passage
of resolutions agreeing to send delegates
to a convention of representatives rrom the
several conimanderies of the District and
on the vote of De Molay depended the suc
cess of the grand commander-.
Resolutions, agrcilng to send delegates to
meet those from other commanderies and
to sustain a grand commandery, were finally
passed by a narrow margin. It Is now
thought, after the action of De Molay, that
botli Potomac and Washington Command
erics will Indorse the action of the ma
jority and enter with them into the prep
arations for the selection and installation
or grand commandery officers. At the last
grand encampment, after the rejection of
the proposition to hold all future conclaios
iu this city, after the one in Pittsburg in
1808, a proposition was submitted to raise
funds for the purpose of erecting a temple
here, for the prCoervaUou ot the archives
and records of Uie order. The proposition
was rejected Uicn, but now that a grand
commandery is to flourish, the project will
be revived and strongly supported by the
New Turkish Itallnay.

Cleveland, Nov. 27 A drama in real
life, more extraordinary lu itsdevelopun-nts
than the complicated plots of WHkie Collins,
has been brought to light by the Indefati
gable investigations or a Cleveland attor
ney. Two years ago a Dr. Kmerson of Herea.
a Cleveland suburb; -was arrested on the
charge or burglary. The trial was sensa
tional, a pathetlcfeaturelielncthedevotlon
displayed by his voune and beautiful
wire, who sat constantly by his side during
the trial. Emerson was convicted and
sent to the penitentiary.
His wire was shocked later to discover
that he had repaid her devotion by sur
reptitiously making out a mortgage on his
property while In Jail to one Slary Thiers.
Airs. Emerson's love turned to hatred.
She instituted divorce orocecdines nnd was
granted u decree. Then ihe consulted an
attorney in regard to the legality of the

leaving all his property to Mary. He had
been nn Intimate friend of Dr. Emerson.
Several days ago the attorney received a
letter from a man named Wittman.of Huf

"Caspar Wlttroan." continued the writer,
"left his devoted wife In Buffalo to wildly
follow Mary Thiers, who poisoned his
mind against his family, lie was worth
$50,000 in cash, and holds much real
estate in Cleveland and Detroit"
The letter concluded with the statement
that if Thiers and Wittman were the same
the attorney should immediately institute
proceedings to contest the -will, as the
writer should maintain that his mother
and children were Caspar Wittroau's legal
An Investigation of the will settled tho
question of Identity. It is signed John
Thiers, but be states that be was for
merly known as -Caspar Wittman. Now
comes anothcf complication. In his will
Wittman speaks ot his "former wife."
The court records-show that he was never
-divorced In this city, and the attorney
claims that wetei vuttmnn divorced the

Thinks Chicken Better Tban Turkey.
Noticlugin yesterday's Times that Johns

the- thought suggested Itself to me that
they, themselves, must prefer chicken to
tureky for their Thanksgiving dinner.
However, they have a fine supply of turkeys
ou band, which will bo sold, not given
away. I think chicken very good my
self, especially when I get it free. The
fowls which this firm gavo away on their

tender; and this Is a great advantage in

gain any personal credit from the measure
but thought it would be a graceful thing
for a Republican Congress to pass the bill.
"There has been paid into thcrTreasury "
he said "the sura ot $26,000,000, all of
which should go to the South. Former Re
publican Congresses have declared that they
would pav this money to the rightful owners

the Southern people would be -willing that
the interest from the money should all go to
the ex-Confederates who are in needy cir

any need for such relief that the fund should
revert to the Government for all time to

IT IS PUBLIC LAND.
Supposed Indian Reservation Ik Found,
to Belong to tUe People.
Spokane, Wash., Nov. 27. It Is be
lleied that the vast tractot land in Stevens
and Okanogan counties, known as the Col
ville Indian ReservaUon, Is not a reserva
tion, but Is public land.
This question was raised about two
months ago, when a new government map
was received at the local land ofnee which
failed to dcsignatcthls landasa reservation.
It now appears that a firm of attorneys
has Imestigated the government records,
and failed to find where any treaty had
ever been made with the Indians setting
this land off for a reservation.
So confident aro they that this land is
part of the public domain that they have
located several mining claims.
This land is valuable for the vast moun
tains of minerals which it contains. Bluco
the news has leaked out a rush of prospec
tors has begun, and numerouslaims arc
being located. -"J . - .
