A IIEMISrilEHE OF HEPITHLTCS.
Last night a mass meeting in Chicago
voiced the Ecntlment ot that city in favor
of Cuban Independence, and through a
erics of resolutions a demand was made
for Ihe recognition ot the Cubans as bellig
erents. This first public expression of
sympathy for the struggling patriot Is sure
to find a willing reeiwnsc In the heart of
every American, and the precedent set by
Chicago will be followed beforeman months
by many cities and towns throughout the
Free America is the pride of all citizens.
The patriotism of our forefathers who
gallantly won our independence from a
foreign power haslmprcssed itself so vividly
In the affairs ot this nation that all its
people, foreign born or native, arc natural
sympathizers with countries that seek a
similar form ot government.
On tills side of the ocean there can be
no iiermanent resting place cither for a
government. The desire for freedom seems
to be inherited with the boundless wealth
ot the Western Hemisphere, and those who
are permitted to enjoy Its beneficence feel
it necessary to do so with free bands and
The Influence ot the United State-Sthas
caused one by one of the other countries in
this half ot the world to th rowotf monarchical
allegiance. They have seen a great people
prosper in their Independence and grow
powerful and rich In the liberty we enjoy.
With but the circle exception ot Canada
no foreign flag floats on freedom's hemi
sphere except the one Cuba is now trying
to drive out of her territory. Putting aside
Cuba's claim on this country for support
tills argument aloae should enlist our sym
pathy. With Cuba free but one government
remains that Is not entirely independent,
and the connection of Canada with England
is more a matter of form than of reality.
The American who refuses his support to
Cuba bus forgotten the history of his own
country. He should once again read of
our rev olutionary fathers, of their hardships
d bravery to make this country free, and
in dolug eo be will also be rehearsing the
struggle and trials of the Cuban patriots,
for their cause i3 identical with that ot the
heroes of the American revolution.

Tho District grand Jury, Just discharged,
closed its labors by placingon record one of
the most extraordinary recommendations
known to the annals of District affairs.
That body of mental lights presented a
petition to Judge Itradley asking that the
whipping post be established for the punish
ment of minor offenses. The Jury claimed
that its use would lessen the expenditures
of the criminal courts and decrease crime
In the District, but it failed to state
that this method of punishment has been
nbolKhcd in most of our penitentiaries be
cause of Its brutality, and that Its establish
ment at the seat of government of the most
enlightened nation on the face of the globe
"would be a disgrace from which we could
hardly recover. Think of it, a whipping
post and the cat-o'-nine tailsat the National
Capital of a people that boast of being
It mast be expected that crime will bo
prevalent as long as the authorities permit
"tho central part of ourdty to be used as a
breeding place for -vice. The cpen and
unrestricted traffic of nearly one hundred
immoralscpulchres to which isnddcdthesnle

necessarily prove a source ot constantly

for thieves, thugs nnd criminals or all kinds,

action would have been In keeping with
Uie spirit ot the times, bat as It Is they
have placed themselves on record na

barbarism which civilized communities
have long since condemned.
Next to the shame blot ot the District
tbe whipping post. If established, would be
pointed out by toreign visitors ns an Il
lustration ot the moral development of this
great country. They might even be
Justified in looking Tor a ducking stool,

The report of Director of Mint Preston
on the production and consumption or pre
cious metals should prove Interesting to
ndvicalcs or gold and silver coinage. The
production of gold for 1894 for the United
States was $39,500,000. For the world
It was $179,905,000. The coinage of
gold throughout the world exceeded Its
productlon'by $10,000,000, and there was
about- $50,000,000 of gold used In In
dustrial work. The production or silver In
the United States In coinage value was
$04,000,000, the commercial value of
which, per ounce, was only $31,422,000,
and which also shows a decrease of 10,
500.000 ounces from tbe amount produced
In 1893. About $33,000,000 worth of
silver was used for Industrial purposes.
Tbe United States lost through gold ex
ports 5SG,730,3CG In coin and $10,693,417
In bullion; making the total loss, or rather
contraction. In our money in circulation
$103,428,783 Tor 1891.
Tbe total stock of gold coin In the
United States at tbe beginning of 1894
was $003,013,158, and bad it not been

an enormous contraction of our money
-ou!d have brought about disastrous re

Twlxt temperance and-electric roads, the
demand for corn is going to the dogs. It
is said that electric roads have displaced
275,000 borses, which would have con

and the tremendous inroads the temper

has probably lessened the consumption of
corn to a great extent. The only remedy
for this bad state of affairs is to put the
public on a corn diet.

"All tilings come to bim who waits."
Manager John W. Albaugh said U1I3 out
of the fullness of his heart as he stepped upon
the stage of the Lafayette Square Opera
House last night and presented to the people
of Washingtou tbe magnificent play house
over whose destinies he is to preside.
It was a memorable scene, there la the
glitter at incandescent lights, tbe soft glow
of green and gold and white, with a vast
audience, still as death, listening to the
broken Volco ot the -etcran manager. The
stage which bad a minute before been filled
with a crush of gorgeous color held only
that ope figure, la its severe black suit, and
in placer of tbe crash of harmony were his
heeitnting tones, thanking Ids Irlends for
what they hav edone for hiiu andhoping that
he would deserve even more.
FILLED TO THE CEILING.
Thus was the playhouse dedicated. From
orchestra to the gallery, perched high
under the vaulting roof, through balcony
and large circle, was packed an audience
drawn together ror an event which rails
butseuioin but once In generations.
The spirit or Hie nour was all-pervading,
and nn entertainment far iufe-rior to that
which was accorded the honor or nrst
treaumg tbe boanls ot tbe bright stage
wuuld nave beeu given a warm reception.
Miss Lillian Russell's Uie has been roll
or ucce-s--. but there are lew she will
look back upop with pleasanter emotions
than this. She knew It was not alone her
own 'attractions which called together
this vast audience, and like a true artist
she determined, as did every one in the
company, to deserve at least a portion of
the credit, and make theaudlence reel when
the curtain had gone down that it hail seen
something more than the Ilrsi sight of a
splendid building. This she did.

"The Jewel" is a sweet little song In the

DeKovenesque and touch edwith the ballad
like airs of "Kobln Hood." This, with a
duet Ix-tween Vera ai.d Casamlr, which
was well sung by Mr. Edwin Hotr. are the
best songs in Tiganc"
Few of the other characters call for
much. Miss Flora Finlayson costumed and
sang Maryska very pleasingly, and in her
one solo ree-eived an encore.

PLENTY OF COMEDY.
Comedy men were present three deep.

Joseph Herbert, has one ot his original
creations, and Mr. Fred Salomon was as
clever a Charles Wayne in their rcspc-ctlve
parts ot Gen. Buguslaw and Varslll.
A s f or the chorus It was all that could be
desired. Carerul training was evidenced
In the smoothness ami precision or the
songs, marches and dances.
Tne audience was in a mood to be liberal
and the applause wan rrcqucnt and sincere.
True,(rorthe -greater portion of the first
act there was a lack or responsiveness, bnt

portunity,' tills condition melted, aud a
thorough sympathy was established.
When the curtain rell ou the second act
tbe ciurmingactTess was compelled to show
her thanks and riually responded In a neat
little speech of thanks.
Then the audience demanded Mr. A Ibangh,
and he told them of his life's ambition to
owna theater In Washlgton.nnelbUcniotlon
., c,w.ln. that ambition fulfilled.
Warm applause gave blm a promise Uat
support would be ills and he bowed him
self off the stage
For a medley of all that is comprised In
the modern spectacular light opera and
theatrical conuxisitions, probably nothing
has recently been presented which has bit
the popular taste more nearly than "Little
Christopher," given ror the first time In
Washington at tlie National lost evening.
The Iiouce was crowded from front-orchestra
ffinirs to Lack teats of the upper
"allery and the veciferous applause from
every localitv proved that the Washington
audience was In lull sympathy with the
Immense throngs which have attested the
popularity or the burlesque elsewhere.

An Open Confession
Is Good for the Soul!
We arc going to prove a feiv things liere
this morning right in front of the crowd;
you know just as well as we do that
there isn't a Clothing House in the city of
Washington that has ever been known to
cut prices in the BEGINNING of a new
season whether it be summer or winter;
these are the times when prices are held
right up to the highest notch. After the
season advances a little somebody jumps
in with a "discount sale" and from that
minute the clothing trade is in a state of
panic Dealers get red in the face trying
to demonstrate how much lower prices are
during these reduction sales than they
were at the beginning of the season. We're
going to be honest and admit that we have
had these reduction sales and they were
GENUINE, too but from tick of the
watch our store will have just ONE price
in the beginning in the middle and at
the end of ALL SEASONS. Our new fall
stock is here it's better and bigger than
any we have ever had before and it is too
good to be TRIFLED with. When we tell
you that a suit or overcoat is worth $10
(and we've got stacks of them at this price)
you can bet your last dollar that it is
as good as ten dollars will buy ANY
