We love our country. We glory in Its

Beneath all the welcome noise and physi

lies the iM- spirit of "the men of '70."
Politicians may animadvert, anarchists
may rave and foreigners may scoff, but
we are all right.
The Declaration of Independence has
been fruitful of marvelous results that its
(signers scarcely dreamed of. Greater bless
ings are to come.
The &pmnnids may call our starry ban
ner a "dl-rag," but they fear it. In
other ooMirfries its appoarance may not
be pleasaitt, but it is rctpected. It may
offend the eMliotic tastes of certain so
called Americans, but they have grown
prosperous under it.
"Certain inalienable rights" have not

in this republic, because of the uncontrolled
ambitions of corporations and trusts and
the perjry of inon in Ingb places, but
time and Intelligence and honest effort
will properly adjust this state of things.
We are on the eve aye, in the very noon

too know their rights and are asserting

true concept jou of the genius of our insti

Is abroad in the laud, and Independence
Day means more than it has for a long tirre.
All will yet be well. Then let us cele

IIOTELEIt AND TIIE UNION.
The union conductors and gripmen of the
Columbia Street Railway seem to ha vegood
cause for complaint against Superintendent
Bolder. A series of punishments for petty
effenses are the result of their affiliating
board of directors promptly put au end to
these nagging persecutions the men will be
compelled to resign theirpositious orask the
mediation of the entire union. A measure
that might result in a general strike.
Strangely enough corporations seldom
recogulzethe good to be derived from organ
ized labor. They are inclined to look upon
labor unions as bodies of banded ruffians
-wliise sole object is to rob employers
through arbitrary methoda. There never
was a greater mistake. It is true that cor
porations often find themselves at variance
with organ! zedlabor.but almost invariably
the conflict is brought about to redress the
wrongful acts of corporation tools, rather
than to enforce an unjust demand.
Tho case of the Columbia railroad Is a
good lilurtratlon. Supt. Boteler is afraid
of organized labor. A partof tbeconductors
nnd gripmen belong to the protective as
sociation, and be has determined to drive
them off the road bylinjust and arbitrary
treatment. Kindness, courtesy aud an
attempt to be Just would prove far more
effective in securing tho best efforts of
bis employes, and if Supt. Boteler will
cdopt this policy he need have no fear of

that the response to thisrequest willbespon-tan-ous
and that tho required amount will

Tho exhibit is or JiiBt-such a character as
is calculatd to attract to "Washington a
population desirous of living in a cultured
community. -Jtwilr-show the work of our
public schools; tho work of Washington
artists; books ami manuscripts of Washing

women's peace congress. These will give
tangiblo eyidence of the great progress this
city is making as an educational, scientific,
literary and artistic center, and will add to
the many evidences thatserveto make Wash
ington attractive as a place of residence for
iwr-vons of wealth and leisure.
All this, of course, is only what is
known as the official exhibit. There will
be individual exhibits in proof of Wash
ington's growth as a commercial and indus
trial city a fact too frequently lost sight
of iu the overshadowing operations of the
government. When it Is remembered that
this city, according to census statistics,
ranks a way up among manufacturing com
munities, it will lie conceded that a fine
showing can be made iu this respect at
the Southern exposition.
Both the official and, unofficial exhibits
will serve to put Washington In the fore

Secretary Heiliert in disapproving the
findings of the court-martial iu the case of
Lieut. Dorn.ofthe Olympia. through whose
failure to fill, or have tilled, a recoil cyl
inder, a gun burst and killed a gunner, but
whom the court acquitted, reads a" very
caustic but apppropriate lecture to all
naval officers, but especially to a class
who appear to regard their positions as
imiHising only individual but not general re
sponsibility. The Secretary emphasizes the generally
recognized maxim that the greater the au
thority the greater the responsibility, and
expiesses Mirprise at what appears to be
great laxness iu ah-Jgning the different
" kinds of work on board of a vessel.
Upon tho circumspeetiou of naval of
ficers in positions of command aboard
ship depends uot only their own surety,
but that of liundredsof subordinates and
large property Interests. The slightest
relaxation of care may cause disaster in
volving loss of life or the maimiug of men,
as in the preseut instance. It would appear
from tho strictures of the Secretary that
this unfortuuate conditiou is not infrequent,
and hence the overhauling given Lieut.
Horn, therefore, touches witli equal force
every officer in the naval service.
It may bo expected that after Secretary
Herbert's vigorous utterances, the fault
complained of will be greatly remedied,
if not entirely abated.

CAHPEXTEHS A HE DETEHMIXED.
Union Men Will Not Acccpr Work on
tho Cat hollo University.
The war being waged with the Catholic
University contractors by the Carpenters'
Council of the city shows no signs of abat
ing, and the labor organizations propose
to allow none of their members to go to
work upon the building until the standard
wages are paid to the carpenters. They
say they do not intend to Ftrike or in any
way interfere with the work, but simply
to let the public know that this great
institution is being erected by men who are
working for less than union wages. It is
claimed that the contractors arc taking
advantage of the hard times which have
recently prevailed, and are securing labor
at a figure which no carpenter would
accept except for the fact that he can get
nothing else to do.
The union laborers have all been called
off, and when the Building Trades' Coun
cil has taken action upon the matter some
difficulty will be found in getting men to
do the finer class of work. Mr. M. D.
Hose, the vice president or the Carpenters'
Council, was interviewed last night and ho
said that no men who are members of tho
District organizations represented in tho
Carpenters Council aro now in the employ
of the university contractors and he further
affirms that none will work there until
they receive 52.&0 per day.
The carpenters are by no means thronga
with the affair, and Fay they intend t
submit the facts to the Building Trades'
Council, Federation of Labor, and the
Knights or Labor. In regard to the Childs
house now being erected and on whici union
men are not allowed to work, the unioii
people are t-till p'.anning to .secure recogni

ENCOMIUMS FOR THE WOMEN
Their Edition of the "Times" a
Provided Funds- for tho Homo for
Incurables Which Is Sadly In
The Woman's Edition or The Times, is
"suetl yesterday morning, hits haflpily met
Willi ihe most gratiijing success. From
every side the encomiums have poured In.
There has been nothing bJt praise for the
successful accomplishment of the stupen
dous undertaking. The paper so brought
out by the leading women of Washington is
a credit to ail concerned.
There is a lea lure, and not the least
important one that must not, however, be
loit sight of in the shower of congratula
tions. It is that the papers has been issued
wholly and solely for the purpose of pro
viding funds for the Home for Incurables.
Thut great charity after the niesent
month will be absolutely wltuuui lunds
to carry on its daily expenses. To meet
this deplorable deliciency, (he Woman's
Edition lias come into being. Ix?t the help
to carry out financially the great literary
success be as gratiryinglysho ivii and the re
sult will be all that can be desired.
The out-of-town and foreign orders have
been large Let the people of the District
remember the helpless invalid at tho
Home for Incurables and come unanimously
to the rescue m this respect and nuke the
number of copies sold in Washington over
whelmingly larger than all of the out-of-town
In order that theprotits from the Woman's
Edition shall be as large as possible, the
paper lias been issued entirely separate and
distinct from the regular edition of Tho
Times. Those who cannot, personally,
come to the office to purchase the supplies
of the edition desired, can have their orders
attended to by mail. In such cases tho
stamps, or price of same, should be in
cluded m the amount enclosed lor the
order of papers.
Yesterday morning, bright and early, The
Times office presented a most attractive ap
pearance when the young ladies who had
volunteered to help, by selling the paper, ap
peared in their pretty summer costumes. It
was a sight appreciated to t lie full by those
who cami.ni to buy copies of the wonderful
Woman's Edition, a sight which not a few
were loath to lun e. It was decidedly more
in the nature of a fashionable afternoon ten
than a July morning bevy of pretty girls
gowned in prettiestuttire of the season.
It is a sight that will be repeated this
morning, from l to 12 o'clock. Tho girls
have given theirquota and contributed their
share to the general successfn the most prac
tical manner, not only in belling the papers,
but in directing, wrapping and mailing the
vast mmiborof papers to besentoutof town.
Tho good people of Washington should
recognize this fact and onenndallcontribute
thoir quota in buying tho Woman's Edition
and in so doing, contributing to the actual
living expenses or the helpless invalids at
tho Home for Incurables.
Copies of theoditioncan be obtained at the
business orfice of The Times at any time
on and after July -1.
CHASE PROVOKED k STORM
Excitement at a Mass Meeting of
the Colored Eepublicans.
Ho Wanted. McKlnley Indorsed For
tho Presidency and Finally In
formally Secured a Voto.
"Your action, Mr. Chairman," said W.
Calvin Chase, the colored editor who has
just come out of jail on account of Recorder
Taylor, at the Republican mass meeting
at Franklin Street Church Inst night, "is
unfair, arbitrary and unparliamentary,
and by unanimous consent I withdraw the
resolution and myself from the meetiug."
The resolution referred to was one of
fered by Mr. Chase indorsing Hon. William
McKinley for President of the United States,
and his aetion was the climax of a series
or boisterous scenes.
The meeting was called to order by C. P.
Irby, who btated the one grand object to
be the organization of a central Repub
lican Club in the District. Hardly had
this been done when it was plain that a
majority of those present were obstruc
tionists, and they lost no opportunity to
delay any and all business that came up.
Alter considerable acrimonious discussion
on parliamentary usages, Mr. G. W.Boston
was elected temporary chuirman, and Mr.
S. E. Jones, secretary. The temporary
organization was then made permanent.
At this juncture the irrepressible Lewis
Willis took tho floor and started to sjwak
and positively refused to be called to order.
Tho next to harrangue the crowd was
Isaiah Lewis. Heproveatheorganizationofa
central club, but thought tlie undertaking at
this time premature. He, too, was culled
down. At this stag or the proceedings W.
H. Simpson, vice president of the fourteenth
legislative assembly, wanted to know by
wiiat authority such an organization as tho
one proposed, could be effected; and if it
was tho intention of the promoters or the
scheme to interfere with the representation
of the fourteenth assembly in the District
The chair stated that the proposed or
ganization would be known as "a league,"
and not a'club. In addition, ho explained
that the orfice is to secure better repre
sentation Tor the colored people of the Dis
trict at all national convcnlioas.
Then Mr. Chase oirered his resolution.
W. C. Cox rose to speak against the adoption
of the resolution "because the meeting was
not called for the purpose of indorsing any
one for the presidency" and then went on to
give his own political record.
Mr. Chase said "the resolution was of
fered in good faith and would rather have
some action on it than hear the speaker,
Cox, glorifying himself."
Everybody was excited by this time and
several were trying to get recognition
from the chair, and failing in this crowded
around his desk. Pandemonium reigned for
nearly five minutes, when the chahman
settled the matter by declaring the reso
lution out of order and dashing it under the
Mr. Chase, who was standing near by,
picked it up, and, holding it above his head,
accused the chairman or unfairness. He
then offered the resolution to the crowd,
who endorsed it with a whoop. The meeting
then adjourned sine die.

Friends of the Fencihles Are In
dignant Over His Action.
SAY THEY WERE. SACRIFICED
Capt. Domer Denies That. Ho Used
Any Influunco to Prevent. Action.
Ho Wus Surprised, HecauisO tho
Order Wuh Haswl Upon the Inwpeo
tlon A Separate Company.
The order of Gen. Ordway disbanding the
Fencihles, or Company C, Second Bat
talion, was the subject of nearly all the
gossip yesterday in military circles. It
was the talk of the soldiers at the armory
liist night, where members or the Fencihles
held their ola room Just as it nothing had
Military etiquette, however, prevented
them from discussing the order of their
superior officer. What was said was tho
keynote: "The Fencihles are all right, but
Company C is in the Foup;" this, in fact,
being tlie language of a Fencible without a
present military occupation.
Another of the disbanded men said: "Oh,
you can say that we ure simply Fuspended
in the air; Just floating about in space."
Cupt. Domer is about the most undismayed
of the company. Yesterday he telegraphed
the National Rides at St. Louis:
"Company C no longer exists, but the
Fencihles Join me In wishing -you every
The Rifles telegraphed last night in re
sponse: "Excellent inspection yesterday. Firs
class drill this morning. "Maiison made no
mistake and had time to spare. Rifles send
you greeting, audi want you back in the
National Guard." I
UNDERCURRENT OF TALK.
While there Is a great deal of the under
cu rrent of the talk among other members of
the guards adverse to the Fcncibles and
Justifying the discipline, there is also a great
dal of criticism of the manner in which the
order was conveyed to tho Fencihles.
As thTe has been a good deal of specula
tion as to what the Funcibles will do and
their position before the soldiers of the
country Capt. Domer was asked last night
for an expression of bis views. He said:
"I had intended palling on Gen. Ordway
to-day to find out. what aro his intentions
as to the order, but, ho was out or the city.
Or course, it is understood that in our pres
ent relations I catuiot m any way criticise
the action or a superiororficer. Therefore
I would prefer to say but little and would
not. except toco rrect some fnise impressions
lert on the public mind by some of tho
"Tue situation issimply this: An orderhas
been issued disbanding the company, and
there is nothing in it providing for the
discharge or resignation of the officers at
all. Gen. Ordway has not indicated what he
wishes us to do. As individuals we arc still
of the National Guards, although the com
pany is not.
"As to the terms, tho language of the
order, I have-to say that it was not
exactly what I expected; It was a surprise
to me, as it was to everybody else, I did
not think that the issue would be made on
the inspection. I nesumed that it would
be ou the non-attendance in camp.
USED NO INFLUENCE.
"Oneofthenewspapershas intimated that
we had used influence to prevent this action
on the part or Gen. Ordway. That is not
true. The matter has been with him abso
lutely. I have not had any talk with him
on the subject, and the members of the
company had nothing to say. If Gen.
Ordway has taken exceptions to newspaper
talk, that is hisaflair.
"Another error : An afternoon paper
makes the point that as we are out of the
National Guard we will not be permitted to
take part in any annual competition drill.
These annual drills are restricted simply to
regularly organized white companies and
as a matter of fact other t han National com
panies have taken part in such compe
titions." Capt. Domer said thatlliere was nothing
in the speculation that the Fencihles
would go into the National Rines. He In
timated, however, that there would always
be the Fencihles among "military organiza
tions. Capt. Domer will probably have an
interview with Gen. Ordway to-day when
he will return from New York;
The civilian side of the enibroglio is
to some extent given in the following ex
pression of opinion:
"I think they have treated the -Fencihles
very unkindly. They are first class young
men, intelligent, bright, fcober, industrious,
faithful to their employers, aud have al
ways been a success in military and social
lire. They have given more stimulus to
tlie military than any oiher company of the
FOR THE SACRIFICE.
"It looks to mo ns if the Fenciblcs
havo been designated, for khe sacrifice.
They certainly intended no discourtesy to
Gen. Ordway, and if they failed to respond
at Fort Washington it was because tboy
wcre worked nearly to death by their
endeavor to ho ecjujpjied for the military
contest at Memphis,'?
"The basing of theordcr on a failure in
inspection on tlie th of May is rather
curious. It seems to me that Gen. Ord
way, ir that was the true cause or griev
ance, should and would have issued his
order immediately, and not waited till
the company camo back from Memphis,
where, by the way, in the very matter or
inspection they made 98.
"1 know thut ir several or the boys had
attended at Fort Washington they would
have lost their places in business, and
going was out of the question.
"Perhaps it Is a eurmisc 6u my part, hut
I think Gen. Ordway lent himself -to
certain prejudices and jealousies. Per
haps he wasn't given that amount or ob
sequiousness which he expected, and in
the military, as in politics, cuckooism

Pror. Willis L, Moore, for more than a
year in charge of the Weather Bureau
office at Chicago, is the man selected as
tho new chief of the bureau. He was
educated at the Signal Service school at
Fort Myer, and rauked eecond hi a grad
uating class ol thirty. Ho was then
twenty-one years old.
He entered the Signal Service work at
once, and has remained iii it ever since,
iu ull twenty years. He was promoted to
bo sergeant in 188(5 Tor devising "new,
economical, expeditious mechanical meth

maps." Later he look charge of the
Minneapolis of flee, and then wus transferred
to Milwaukee, where he won fcpeQial ineu

Last year in a competitive examination
for professor of meteorology he was
chosen from thirty scientific experts
aud forecasters who were candidates.
Tlie examination was under civil service
rules, and the uames of candidates were
not known till the award was made. The
examining board was Dr. Harrington, Dr.
Mendt-nhall, then In the Coast Survey, and
Major Dunwoody, or tho Weather Bureau.
PROFESSOR OF METEOROLOGY.
Upon that success he was nppoiuted pro

furnished to thcforce. It Is thought that
there were ar-least three, and possibly five
members of the gang who attacked the
train with dynamite.
Immediately after tlie explosion Jarred
the train Engineer A. G. Gartrell threw
open the throttle and got the train over
that portion of the track that was injured
by tlie force of the explosion before it
was derailed. The members of the crew
then returned to the scene of the disaster.
They were armed and expected a battle.
They could hear the robbers whistling to
each other in the woods and could hear
voices, but those soon died away, and
nil grew quiet.
The man, whose description was fur
nished to the local police, as tlio jjiipposed
ringleader, had been seen in that neighbor
hood for several days, and slept in box
cars near Wabhiiigton Junction. The de
tectives learned also that he purchased
some dynamite from a country store near
the junction. Detectives Grannan and
Lloyd, of the Baltimore aud Ohio force,
me conviuced that he made his way across
the country to this city.
Tlie supposed leader is described as being
about thirty years old, five foot, eight
inches tall, has a slender neck, thin, sharp
features, and wore a black suit of clothes
a white shirt and a standing collar. His
description lias been read to the police
and they have beeu specially ordered to
look out for him.
The robbers could not have chosen a bet
ter spot for their purpose. A steep em
bankment lines either side of the track
for several hundred yards west of the
bridge across the Big Monocacy, aud had
the attempt been successful the cars would
have beeu thrown a distnnco of from firty
to seventy-five feet, to the Iwttom.
Every possible effort is being made to
apprehend the ringleaders, both by the
local police force and tlie Baltimore and
Ohio detectives, and Chief Grannan ia
confident that beforo many days havo
elapsed the highwayman will ho behind the
