AN OFFER TO SUBSCRIBERS.
Enterprising readers require progressive
journalism and the day of the slow-moving,
opinionated newspaper has joined fortunes
with the canal boat and the stagecoach.
Its bright, sprightly successor, with im
proved facilities for news gathering .and
cheaper met hods of publication, has become
the popular favorite and the old fogy
journal is a thing of the past- A few years
ago tbe public was satisfied "with a news
paper that readied subscribers once each
week, but now the latest popular Idea Js
two editions a day.
Following up the modern method The
Times has commenced the publication t
morning and evening editions, which arede
Jivered by carrier to all parts or the city
not later than 6:30 o'cluok a. ni. and 5:30
o'clock p. m. each day, except Sundays,
when it delivers its readers a mammoth
twenty-page edition. This method of fur
nishing readers witli the fullest and latest
information n all topics, foreign, do
mestic, and local, twice each day, is cer
tain to be immensely popular. It enables
them to foll(w up subjects in which they
are interested without waiting twenty
four hours for the less enterprising daily,
and -every up-to-date reader will take "the
bi-daily Times so as not to be behind the
The iHost satisfactory feature ot this
new departure is the cheapness of its ser
Ylee. It costs only FIFTY CENTS A
MONTH to receive an eight-page morn

page edition for Sunday reading. And,
in order to give subseruiersto THE MORN

TT IS ONLY A QUESTION OF TIME.
Tho Chicago University, which, at the
request of Millionaire Rockefeller, has just
discharged Prof, Bemisf or denouncing trusts
and monopolies, is destined to become the
center of education for eons of money langs
who do not believe in t he-rights of labor.
One or its faculty, Prof. J. Lawrence
Laughlm, now in the chair of political
economy, is on record as favoring monopoly,
and If "his colleagues are ol the same -way of
thiukiiig the Chicago University is sure to
bi popular with millionaire monopoly mag
nates. Here is what Prof. Laughlin says:
"The managers' -wages are payments
of exactly the same nature as any labor
er's wage, Hmakes no difference whether
wages are paid for manual or mental labor.
Tiie payment to capital, purely as such,
known as interest wiui insurance for
risk), is unmistakably decreasing an the
United States. And jet we see men gain
by industrial operations enormout. rewards.
But these returns are in their essence solely
niauareis"' -wages To wha t does this lead
us? To the conclusion that the laborer, if
he would become something more than
th" earner of wages in the ordinary sciikc,
must himself move up in the scale of la
bDrers until he reaches the skill and power
also to command managers' wages."
It has long been conceded that men rule by
brain force; that power, position, riches
and inflaence are the results of superior
Intellect. It is also well known that strong
minds aTe frequently misdirected, and
instead of benefiting the world are made
Instruments of injury and oppression. It is
this latter species or mental strength that
iuduces men "to monopolize wealth to Hie
detriment of their less fortunate brethren.
Actuated by the same brain energy that
caused tyrant "kings and roblier barons to
plunder the people a few centuries i-lnce,
corporation magnates are now preying upon
the public in a less bloodthirsty but rearly
as destructive manner.
Manual laborers, as Prof. Laughlin des
ignates working people, cannot rise in the
scale or humanity when weighted down
by niouopolimic managers. People who
barely earn aliving by Incessant labordo not
find timeformentaliniprovement,even were
they in physical condition lo do so. And
It is thin lack or opportunity that Impels
true tonchersof political economy loattempt
to supply a reniiy.
Public sentiment in olden times dethroned
the robber barons and enfranchised a tyrant
ridden people. S& same sentiment is
Iii any case of irregular delivery of
again .gathering strength, and before many
years will find a way to. overthrow the
money kings and free the wage-earning
public from their piratical, but bloodless
rule. It is practically safe to predict that in
this public uprisi.g all monopolies, eithe
traffic-bearing and dealing with the general
public, or local and supplying water and
lighting faculties,, will,, under certain con
ditions, be placed under public control.
History will again repeat itself, except
that the next popular revolution and vic
tory against cruel brain force will be won
by the ballot and not by tho sword.
THE ECKINGTON TKOLLBY IN
JUSTICE. It is about tijuethe Eckington and Sol
diers'' Homo trolley had a different man
agement. Not content with violating tlio
law and defying legally constituted au
thorities, this contemptible corporation has
b:gun its naturally conaUlent work of per
secuting employes for uniting with or
ganised labor. Several men have been dis
charged for affiliating with the Railway
Protective Union, and it is generally un
derstood that the remainder of the em
ployes are under the surveillance of spot
Before wage earners comprehended the
importance of uniting to rifcitt encroach
ments, or realized the benefits to be de
rived from iraiernal association, it was
easy for employers opposed to organized
labor to hold Uiem in check. But that
time has gone by, and any effort nowadays
to coerce or -compel, employes to submit
lo unjust exactions is fure to arouse a
revolt. Thero is nothing to be feared
from organized Jabor if employers are in
clined to be just, and tho turest way to
gain tlie good will and confidence of em
ployes is to allow them to do aa they pleaee
when not on actual duty.
After tlie hours fixed for daily labor are
concluded, a wage-earner's time and oppor
tunities should be his o wn to u&e aud enjoy
according to his best judgment. He has
performed the duty for which he is bired,
aud is under no further obligation to his
employer. This Is one of the rights that
belong to him as a man and an American
citizen, and the employer who attempts
to abridge or deprive him of these rights
is au enemy to social freedom.
Neither the .Eckington Trolley Company
noranyothcr corporation hastherightto say
what employe."? shall do when not on duty,
and forlhat reason theEckingUin trolley em
ployes are justified In belonging to a labor
organization If they see fit to do so, and
providing they do not allow its meetings or
business to interfere with the duties which
they are paid to perform.
LYDECKEK'S HOLE IN THE
The people of the District will Boon have
discharged a debt which they should never
bave been called upon to pay. The Ly
decker tunnel, otherwise known as the hole
inthe ground, was undertaken against the
judgment and wishes of the tax-payers and
when it ended, there was nothing to show
for the millions of dollars expended, save
that big hole in the ground, which, up to
this time, has been of no earthly use and the
future availability of which is still prob
lematical. However, somebody had to foot the bills,
and upon the District was settled one-half
of the amount it had cost to dig the hole.
From the surplus revenues of the District
the indebtedness has been repaid to the
United States, until only about fifty-six
thousand dollars remains due. This will
be liquidated in the course of thenextf iscal
year, and then the hole in the ground win
be uninicumbered L: debt and water.
The examination recently made by an
officer of the Engineer Corps of the Army

Intended to serve, that is to increase the

the Railway Protective Union last cyjzAu?.
The action taken is not divulged, but it
is certain that the whole matter will be
placed before the Federation of Labor at
its next meetings The result of this pro

will be placed on the unfair list, Hauer
having made a good record on the road, and
the only known icasou Tor his dlscliarge
being his connection with the union.
It is undersiood.also, that the union will
not only extend financial assistance to its
blacklisted members, but that the officers
will iuteresit themselves in securing him
COLUMBIA MEN REINSTATED.
Auother matter considered by the union
was the application made by the Columbia
road employes for the reinstatement of
two comrades who had been deposed for
what tho members regarded as Insufficient
reasons. A report was received to the effect
that the appeal had been favorably con
sidered. The men will be restored to their
positions at the expiration of two weeks
from the date of their dismissal.
Sine the publication in The Times yes

Eckington nianagementas to their treatment
ot the men, other incidents have been re

It is alleged that'if'a passenger gets

must satisfy himself that the child is not

believes it to be over "that age lie must

of all the other pat-seugers, and report tbe
matter to tlio ofrice. " He is then fortli with'

HIS ILLNESS IN THE SPRING.
When Justice Jackson wus so seriously
ill this spring that he was not expected
to recover, the name of his successor was
considerably speculated in. The idea
was suggested by some that the President
would again name Messrs. Peckham or
Homblower, of New York, while the selec

Postmaster General Wilson was strongly
spoken of as among the possibilities, while
the majority were of the opinion that Sec
retary Carlisle could have the place If he
wanted it. Mr. Carlisle would be espe
cially eligible, as he would be appointed
from the same district that the death ot
Justice Jacksou has made vacant.
The last time Judge Jackson was in
Washington was on the occasion ot the re

HIS COLLEAGUES IGNORANT.
The other members of the court were,
therefore, poorly advised as to hib condition.
This state of affairs is said to have been
the reason for tho equivocal character of
the announcement of the decision to grant

ot necessity, depended upon Judge Jack
He was in Washington on the occasion of
the rehearing for several days, and gave
his attention assiduously to the income

in the consultation of the court, and when
the day arrived for tbo announcement of
the decision, uot only listened patiently

catch, and Wright told her it would float
and that sho had better not throw it over
there. He told her of a place nearer the
Washington side. She agreed and he drove
At the point mentioned by Wright there
was no marsh, but dry ground-. She threw
the box and cohlents over the rail.
Tho hackman afterwards returned to he
flats, where the box1 had been thrown over
and recovered it. Thebox and it3 contents
were then taken in charge by Policemen Kil

Georgiana Faulkner Fled, Pursued
by Her Mother.
INTEITOED TO GET MAKEIED
Mrs. Fnulkner Was Opposed to tho
Match Tho Young ,Lady Slipped
Away, but -Hud Mother Quickly
Followed in DishablUe Novel Eoot
itaco on the Streets.
A footrace wlthgo-aa-you-pleasefeatures,
from No. 218 Parker street northeast to
theBaltlmoreand Ohiodepot-on Wednday
morning, attracted general attention ilonjr
its course and especially at the critical
points. It was not announced beforehand
at all, to say nothing of advertising, or. its
unique and striking features would have
attracted an Immense audience.
The hour was about 8:13 a. m, hut as
there was no timekeepers, the exact mo
ment of the start could not bo leara-d nor
was the record of tho race preserved.
Considering the nature of the t-ourse and
tlie prize for which it was run it has prob
ably seldom beeu beaten.
The participants were Mrs. Mary Faulk
ner, who formerly lived with her family
at No. 816 Fourth street northeast, and t
her daughter. Miss Georgiana, who has
for some time past been a waitress at
Marshall Hall. The prize for the young
lady was her lover, whose name could not
be learned, and the mother won, to the
great regret of a majority ot the spec
tators. SHE IS VIVACIOUS.
The youu glady Isauout twenty years old,
and while a little stout, ha3atrim figure, a
pretty race, and is quite vivacious. She
has a number of admirers, some of them
among the handsome young men who fre
quent the down-ihe-river resort where she
works, and none of her acquaintances would
say last night who It was that shared her
disappointment in losing tbe race.
An hour after breaUtast, and about the
tbne government employes are goiiig 10
work, Misss Georgia came out ot her
home on Parker street, near the -orner
ot Second, dressed as for a pleasure trip.
It is said she was really attired furler
wedding, which she hoped would be cel
ebrated within a few hours. Sh ;(ad,
however, unkindly neglected to uotiry
her mother, and was going off without
Mrs. Faulkner, It is understood, had
been watching with a sick neighbor the
night before and slept late. But she
happened to awake before her daughter
got out of sight, and, catching a glimpse
of her through the shutters, she threw on
such ot her clothing as was absolutely
essentlal and followed.
Her arms were bare and her hair flying.
Miss Georgia was on the bridge over the
Baltimore and Ohio tracks at Second street,
when she saw her mother come out of the
door. She quickened her steps, but the
old lady .gained rapidly, and by the time
the Columbia street car line was reached
there was no chance to wait tor the cable
train, two blocks away. v-
The young woman shot up H street at ,
a professional sprinter's icait and her i
mother after her. Around the corner of
H they went, up Delaware avenue, and
over the broad track in front ot Hewett's
Mrs. Faulkner called out as she went
WARNED THE BYSTANDERS,
along, "Catch that girl; she's running away;
Pollcol police!" This only made her com
petitor run the faster and attracted a
crowd of about 200 as she turned the i
corner of Delaware and H.
So much had Miss Georgie Increased her
lead here that when she reached the space
occupied by ContractorSaxton, at First and
G, she slipped into the yard -where materials
are piled and fonnd a secure hiding place.
Her mother sped pan and on toward the
Baltimore and Ohio depot. - Miss Georgie
turned and ran back to the Columbia road,
where she took the cable train downtown
rightbefore the eycsof,PoIiceniau Emerson,
who had been attracted by the excitement
and saw part of the race. But ho recog
nized neither of the participants, nor Lad
warrant to act in the matter.
Other witnesses raid if the girl was
running away to get married, as her mother
seemed to think, they were opposed to
The race was also seen by a number ot
employes of the Government Printing Of
fice, who -were getting off the train just
coming in. and one account says that after
she was in the cable car a gallant old gen
tleman, divining what was happening,
slipped a five-dollar bill into the girl's
hands to help her on her way.
CAUGHT AT THE DEPOT.
Miss Georgie remained in the car to Ninth
street, where she took a transfer to F,
whence she turned back to the B & O. depot.
It is thought she hoped by thus doubling to
throw her mother off the track. But Mrs.
Faulkner had points in the case her daugh
ter apparently knew not or, and met her as
she came to the gates at the B. & O. depot.
Shehad simply kept onher way in Dela ware
avenue, borrowed a shawl from a friend
and was waiting. With a few words she
peremptorily commanded the young lady
to come home aud won a laggard and un
At No. 218 Parker street lass night a lady J
with a rich Irish brogue aid tlie Fan ikn-rs
had been boarders there but were gone for
good; had gone away on the train. She
thought the foot race was too stuallannf fair
Tor public notice and said she was sure
it was no harm for tho girl to rm away if
she found the right man. She would herself
havo run away "an.' if her motnnr were
after her with five sticks."
