the circulation sworn to is a
bona fide one.
It is easily passible for a
newspaper with aft elastic
conscience to swell its legit
imate circulation enor
mously, in order to deceive
advertisers, by sending out
thousnnds of papers to
news stands, which are re
turnable, and which are in
fact returned, but neverthe

POLICEMEN WILL HEED.
For the most part our Washington po
licemen are .1 splendjj lot or officers and
nill compare favorably with tlie personnel
of any other force in the country. Jlanyof
them, how ever, have one very bad and very
dangerous hab't the rtcUcss use of the
rciolier. It Is a habit utterly indeftnib'e,
and indulgence in It ought to subject an
officer not only to punishment in the
courts, but from his superior offieirs. A
police officer has no right to fire his
pistol 111 a crowded street, unless it In- to
defend himself from serious bodd) harm,
or save another person's life In this
respect he stands precisely on j level with
the private citizen. Under no circumstances
should he be permitted to je it simply to
sceure the arrest or a fufculive, or even
because an ordin iry assault has been made
All tliis has been explained to our police
men, both by the newspapers and by the
Judges of our courts. Tines l.aie been im
posed upon offenders frequentl. but ail to
no purpose. It seems as if their zeal eieri
little while runs amj with their discretion
and then they offend agtilu. At last Judge
Miller, of the police court has given warn
lng. which. It is to be Loped, iiolicemen will
heed, if for no other reason than for their
own good. Judge Miller has declared that
the next time a policeman fires a pistol
in the public street and is brought before
him, he will impose no more lines, but
hold him for the action of the grand jury.
Policemen as a rule are such poor marks
men thatthey hit nnstaingoranybody save
the thing or the person they want to hit,
and In the ecs or the grand Jury this ile
ficieuc ought to constitute an additional
reason for returning an Indictment.
PHOTECTING THE PEXsIOXEIIs.
Never was a beneficent reform accom
plished by simpler means, nor was ever,
its good effect more immediately and
more strikingly apparent than that which
had for its object Hie safe-i.eep'ng of the
old veterans' pension money. It was only
a change In the method of delivering the
checks Instead of giving them to the
pensioners at the agency, they are now
mailed to their homes But that change
caused a great difference In the appear
ance of the police station blotters on the
morning following "pension da." On
that day in March CO per cent of the
persons arrested as drunk and disordiriy
were old veterans who bad drawn their
checks, fallen into the hands of sharks,
and spent their few dollars in liquor. On
this last day only 6 per cent ot the
arrests could be traced to pinsion money.
The whole thing proves bow frequently
great results are brought alout by coin
paratlvel insignificant causes.
A flaw has 'ecu discovered, uoweior,
in the new modus operandi. The law
prohibits the delivery of the checks to
any one sale the penshncr himself, or
some duIS-authorized raenitier of his fain
Ily, and hence a good many veterans wLo
were not at home when tlie letter carriers
came, and who had nut given Hie necessary
aathority to any one, failed to get their
checks for twenty-four or forty eight hours.
This defect ought to be remedied. The
law was Intended to throw a saftgunrd
around the pcnsionir, nljen the cheeks
were delivered at tlie ageuc, and to pre
vent Imposl'ii 11 upon the gov eminent and
fraud upou hlin. Probably Its repeal, or
at least materlil modification, is quite

The record of the store'-eard
Stood against us two to naught.
But the gloom of desperation
Lifted like an eagle's soar J-
From tlie Wagner aggregation,
When "fecrupp" tied the score.
This is how tlie great. hit happened
How the) aked, "Where are we at?"
Two were out and two on bases.
When the captain took the bat.
You coulei see elete rmination
In his e)es, and crimson gore
Was written on his visage.
Whin "Sirapp)' tied the score.
"Ball one!" loudly roared the umpire;
Again ihe'twirlet took the sphere;
"Strike one!" and the anxious rooters
'udeieniy were filled with fear.
"Two balls" was the next announcement;
"strike two! Then we h card no more; .
For the brain grew light and dizzy,
When "Serapp)" tied the score.
For a second death like sllllni-ss
Followed on that awful crash.
And the ball, with speed or lightning.
Far to lertward like a flash
struck the sward. Three thousand voices
Broke in one triumphal roir,
Ajiel three thousand reasons tottered,
When "Serapp'' tied the score.
Tbir may talk ot jelling madmen.
You tun) talk ot tingling nerves.
Talk of tr)ing situations.
Talk of twirlers and their curved;
But for genuine exciteraint,
Though;. cm search the broad land o'er,
Nothing equals epjite the Inning
When "etrapp)" lied the score.
