NO COMIHNIXG 1-OI.ITlCS AND
The adoption of the proposition now
before the board of Catholic bishops to
organize a political bureau to meet the
encroachments of Protestant associations
would signalize the beginning of a disas
trous rellslo-polltical warfare. Every
time an attempt has been made to combine
the workings of the church and statescrlous
trouble has followed, and the conservatism
of the Catholic church in this country In
Its dealings with political affairs has been
an element of strength not only to the
church, but also to the general government.
Inasmuch as that great, influential rellgioas
body has steadfastly refused to enter into
a contest for the control of legislative
It should bo the duty ot the public to
eliminate from politics every reference to
religious questions. The mission ot politics
Is togovern Justly, withoit party or religious
distinctions, and to deal with all classes
with moderation, fairness, and by upright
methods. Religion should have no placo
In polities, not even as far-as educational
Influences arc concerned. It has a sepa
rate and distinct function to perform in
preparing the way for the betterment of
the world, and every devotee who imagines
himself especially commissioned to turn
politics luto a religious creed, or vice versa.
Is a bigot from a religious standpoint and
a politician from a worldly point of view.
Every church lias Its place in society,
or It would not be In existence, and each
political party Its power of doing good.
They are here because the public- has
created them, and If church and politics
are Kept reparate and distinct, their In
fluence, each In its own direction, will
be beneficial. But let them get to clashing,
Protestant against Catholic, both repre
senting political parties, and not even the
good sense of the American people can pre
vent serious trouble. This country does not
want any rcligio-polltical struggles. The
history of the Old World is too well known
for us to court such warfare.
O'FDHKALL'S METHOD OF CHCSU.
The vigorous and apparently effective
way with which Gov. Culberson is dealing
with the Dallas prize fight should cause
the blood to flow more freely through
the tliinking apparatus of Gov. O'Fcrrall.
The way to flop lawlessness Is to stop it,
and that is the long and short of the doc
trine of good order in vogue down in Texas
It beats "ringing" recommendations In
lofty-phrased publicmessages. Itlsinfmitcly
superior to premises such asGov. O'Ferrall
made to the beard of trade committee, and
a little of It pasted In the hatofthegovernor
of Virginia would bring some pretty sensi
ble logic within speaking distance of his
wonderfully effusive brain.
There is no locality In tlie United Slates
this side of the farTTest where prizefight

Alexandrlacounty. The conlestsovcr there
are not bouts for scientific points, where

the hittirg is a little too hard. They are
regular pug affairs, where blood Is at a
premium, and they are seldom terminaica
except oncof the f iglitcrs Is beaten to insens 1
blllty. As exhibitions of brutality they
are very much worse than the Dallas fight
would be, because the participants are
usually not tcicntiflc and slug each other

"TALK ABOUT KEWSPAFEKS.
There is alwa"ys more or less controversy
concerning tbe duty of a newspaper toward
the public, its policy as a news dispenser
and its influence as a medium with which
to correct abuses and redress wrongs. Of
the three classes into which dally papers are
divided there should be no donbt as to which
Is tbe -most meritorious, but people differ
in opinion on this question In accordance
with their natural inclinations, and each
has his or ber favorite.
Those who lite the monopolistic organ
best, the paper that supports capitalistic
schemes to plunder the public, and whose
columns are always open to sale, are gen
erally inclined toward questionable trans
actions themselves. Peoplevho prefer the
namby-pamby newspaper, which Is too old
maidish to be interesting and too prim to
be vigorous usually shrink from contact
with commonplace things, and turn up
their noses in hyprocrttlcal horror at the
suggestion of a reform.
Finally, there is the great majority who
admire fearless Journalism; who bclievo
newspapers should be moldcrs of public
sentiment aud redressers ot public wrongs;
who think that an honest newspaper is the
people's pulpit from which dangerous
abuses should be denounced; a friend to
whom all should come who are oppressed.
The prominent dallies of Washington
represent these three classes of newspapers.
Each has its constituency, although the
circulation of neither is restricted to the
several types of people hereinbefore de
scribed. Hut their most ardent supporters
may be classed as follows: Those who
are not overscrupulous in business deal
ings; those who are hypocritically nice and
those who are true men and women because
they possess the natural characteristics
to make them such. Try-to point out, re
spectively, these three newspapers.
A CALL FOIt A MASS MEETING.
The tuccess of the monster meeting of
Cuban sympathizers in Chicago Monday
night teems to have awakened a feeling of
Interest in the cause ofrtlie insurgents in
this city. Yesterday prominent citizens
were considering the cx-icdiency ot calling
a mass meeting to express tbe sen
timent of Washington on this important
question, and within a few days the call
will probablj be made.
A New York paper publishes telegrams
from the governors of nineteen States who
placo themselves on record us favoring
Cuban independence, aud they no doubt
also express the sentiment of the people
whom they represent. The time has come
when the American public must acknowl
edge its friendship for Cuba. Humanity,
common interests and national inclination
have made this step necessary, and Washing
ton should be next to Chicago in announc
ing her determination to do eo.
TIIHEE KINDS OF rilOTECTION.
The rapid growth of Washington and
its spread over greater territory makes
necessary, as soon as practicable, the ex
tension ot tho three kinds of municipal
protection upon which the public largely
depends for its welfare. Our police force
is too small to properly keep lawlessness
and crime within control, as Is evidenced
by the frequency ot burglaries and tlie report
ot the late grand Jury. Our fire depart
ment is inadequate to protect property
and keep insurance rates at a minimum,
as can be ascertained by consulting tho
District authorities. Our water and sewer
systems arc lacking both In capacity and
extent to provide for public uses. And
these tlircc methods ot protecting the
morals, property, and health of the Dis
trict should enlist careful attention.
It is understood that the Commissioners
are now making up the estimates for the
District appropriations of the next Con
gress. They are fully informed as to tho
necessity of increasing tbe amounts re
quired to give us improved fire, police,
and water and sewer systems, but unless
their efforts to secure the funds are
earnestly backed up by public demand,
Congress will put them off with reduced
appropriations and tbe same old story of
lack of ability to do different. In
order to obtain relief, the Citizens' Asso
ciations and people generally should assist
tbe Commissioners in. making the proper
representations to Congress. It is their

AN INSECT'S QUEEIt APPETITE.
tt Prefers a Diet of Ocean Cables to
A curious fact was brought to the atten
tion of the visitors assembled althcopcnlng
ot the telephone trunk lines on Wednesday,
says tlie London News. A portion of the
cablclaid acrossfromrortpatriek loDnnag
hadce was shown around, and it was pointed
out that the five insulated copper wires
constituting Hie core ot the cable the real
telegraphic conductor were incased In a
sheathing of brass which had been wound
around them In the form of a thin metal
tape. The object of this was to protect the
gutta-percha Insulation from the attack
ota minute marine organism known aBtbc
gribble." There was a time, of course,
when the gribble knew nothing about
telegraphic insulating materials and in
deed over a large part of the sea bottom
such modern luxuries are quite unknown.
But the era ot marine telegraphy seems to
have created a new taste In these tiny
creatures wherever cables have been laid
down. Just as animals ot larger proportions
have acquired the taste for bananas or
potted anchovies. They find their way
lu between the sheathing of strong Iron
wire and eat through everything in the way
of insulating material till they got to
the copper strands, when, of course, the
water gets in and the conducting power of
the cable is at an end.
The curious fact is that the ravages of the
gribble were unknown in tho early days ot
ocean telegraphy and that this peculiar
taste Is not only an acquired one, but seems
to be extending In Just the same way as
the acquired taste ot human beings. At
present the fashion of gutta-percha eating
does not go further north than Fortpatrick.
But it has long been moving northward
and will soon be universal. The brass
proves an effectual barrier so far, but
whether these little denizens ot the deep
uay not by and by find even metal tape
a piquant addition to their larder remains
to be seen.

Uniformity In Parkins.
Editor Times: Permit me to call your
attention to a matter which, if remedied,
would, I believe, iuure greatly to the
beauty of our already beautiful city.
It is no uncommon thing to see the
parking in front of the residences on a
square all up and down without regard
to regularity or uniformity as to height.
The custom seems to be for the first
person who builds on a square to make
the elevation of the parking to suit him
self, and those persons who afterward
erect buildings on the same square, either
follow the plan which he adopted, or, if
they see fit, do as he did, make the ele
vation to suit themselves. The result,
in many cases. Is to make nnartislic and
ugly that which was Intended to bo
I have a case In mind where a gentle
man built a handsome residence on a
corner lot in the northwest section of tbe
city, on one of the most beautiful streets
In that section, his being tbe first house
erected on the square fronting on that
street. His parking was adjusted to suit
Ills taste. Subsequently three ruorerhrruses
were built adjoining his, all with the
same elevation as to parking. One of
the three houses finally changed hands
and the new owner concluded to remodel
house and parking, the result being, as
to parking, simply a great bump In the
middle ot the square.
Such cases are not Infrequent, and It
would seem that, lu a spirit of fairness,
certain rales should be formulated, cal
culated to produce uniformity as to tbe
Such rules, perhaps, should apply only

How Tonne Talleyrand and Mai LeUaufly
Famous Case That Has Been Finally
Decided By French Courts and
the Qay Fellows Must Pay.
(Marquise do Fontenoy.)
Prince and Princess de Sagan's son.
Count Hello de Talloyrand-Pcrigord, has
Just bad Ills name brought once more be
fore the public In connection with the
Lebaudy promissory notes, it may bo
remembered that In tlie spring of last year
he was arrested on a charge of fraud and
forgery iu relation to these-notes, aud that
after being detained lu prison for nearly
three months while under magisterial ex
amination he was finally released under
circumstances which were surrounded
with a good deal ot mystery nnd which
gave rise to all kinds of Interpretations.
It Is the civil tribunal which, has rc
cently had the liability with regard to
these notes under consideration, nnd the
proceedings in court have shed much light
on the peculiar character of the transac
tions between little Max Lebaudy, known
as "lo jictlt sucrler," and tbe future Duke
of Talleyrand-Valcncay-Perigord aud
According to the evidence produced It
appears that Max Lebaudy and Helie de
Talleyrand, being each of them short ot
money. In J802 drew up together eight
notes of $10,000 apiece, signed by Max
Lebaudy and payable to his friend. Count
de Talleyrand-Perigord. Inasmuch, how
ever, as Lebaudy was at the time a minor,
and therefore unable to give a signature
possessing any legal value, the notes were
postda'ted to February 17, 1894 that Is
to say, nearly a year and a half later and
three montlis. therefore, after tlie date of
young Max's attaining his majority.
Thus postdated tlie notes were placed
upon the money-lending market and were
speedily taken up and discounted at big
rates ot Interest by third parties of the cent-per-ccnt.
profession, the money being
turned over to young Talleyrand for the
use of his friend and himself. There was
no question of the notes being a bona-fide
recognition b-f Lebaudy ot any debt to his
friend Talleyrand, but merely a sort of
Joint scheme for raising the wind.
By the time tliat Lebaudy hadcome ofage
he had quarreled with his whilom chum
and hod like-wife developed an Invincible
objection to paying tils debts. Itemember
ing tbe existence of these $0,000 worth
of notes bich were about to come due he
published advertisements in tlie French,
English, and Belgian papers informing the
public that he' had learned that a number
of proniltsqrv notes bearing his signature
were floating about upon the market and
warning iieqple'. not to have anything to
do with then), flnce he had signed no notes
whatsoever since attaining his majority.
This was of course equivalent to intimat
ing that thcrnotcs which Count de Talley
rand had dlicounted sixteen montlis pre
viously were1 forgeries, as it stood to rtason
that no one would be foolish enough to
discount or even touch a note bcarinsthe
signature of'a minor, as It Is well known
that such documents have no value what
Asked whether he would pay the notes
or not. Max Lcjuaudy absolutely declined
to do so, leaviugjt t o tc Inferred that he had
derived no financial bencfitfrom the notes,
and that whatever money had been ob
tained upon Item had gone into the pockets
ot Count de vTalleyrand. Convinced that
they had been swindled, the holders of the
notes they had passed through many hands
since being" first discounted proceeded
to have Count do. Talleyrand arrested on
charges of fraud nnd forgery. Unfortu
nately his previous record was not alto
gether as clear as might have been. There
were stories of Jewels, purchased in Lon
don on the ttrenglh of his mother's friend
ship with royalty in London, and pawned
the same day. Therp are other tales of
an equally unpleasant character current
in Taris, resulting from tbe persistent Im
pecuuiosity of the count, who, being the
favorile of bis penniless father, instead of
bis millionaire mother, has always been
kept on a ridiculously small allowance,
while thousands upon thousands were lav
ished, without counting, upon his younger
'brother. Count Bozon.
These stories, of course, served to make
the case look very black against Count
Helie, all the more as Max Lebaudy did not
hesitate to aver that he had been subjected
to all sorts of indelicacies In money matters
by the count.
It took the magistrate close upon three
months to find out tliat whatever else might
be laid at the door of Count Helie de Talleyrand-Perigord,
ho was certainly not guilty
of forgery or even of criminal fraud In con
nection with the Lebaudy notes, and, ac
cordingly, he was set free on the under
standing that the dispute was a question
for the civil, and notforthe criminal courts.
The Prince (f Wales was la Paris at the
time, and certainly exerted himself among
such friends ns possessed Influence with
the authorities to secure the young man's
liberation, aud it may be remembered that
his freedom was attributed to the Prince's
intervention, as well as to the fact tliat his
mother, the Princess de Sagan, had under
taken to pay off the notes on the condition
that he renounce his rights of succession to
the entailed estate and thequadrupleduke
dom to his younger brother, her favorite
It now turns out that tbe princess did not
pay off the notes, that the count has not
surrendered his birthright, and that the
holders of the notes have been compelled to
sue the two signers thereof; that is to say.
Max Lebaudy nnd Count de Talleyrand,
for their face, value. The courts have taken
the groundjthat while the notes being post
dated couldinotbo considered as legal docu
ments, yetjthcy formed the recognition of
money received on loan and obtained by
methods open to question.
Taking thlsjnto consideration, and also
the facts thathe notes are In the hands
not of the original discounters, birt in the
possession of those fourth or fifth parties
who had every reason to believe them
valid, the courls have now given a decree
condemning Max Lebaudy and the Count d
TalleyrandVto'pay Jointly the full amount of
the notes plus tbe legal rate of Interest, and
tbe cost of legal proceedings In the matter.

Tho arraignment of a Cabinet officer
by such methods and on such grounds is
profoundly sensational. If Mgr. Stephan's
plans should carry, the nest Congress
will be unique as his object Is to have the
assembled bishops of histhurch memorialize
Congress for redress of the wrongs al

to organize the Catholic voters under and

Is a proposition contrary lo the tradl

fact that it is to-day being seriously

that we will stand up as an organization for

Indians a bowl goes up from a certain
quarter, and instead of presenting and re
ceiving a Just allowance on our claims we
have to fight for every dollar we get from
Congress and then engage in a constant
battle -with the Indian Office to get the
funds after they are appropriated. We are
tird ot this, and l lor one am going into
politics. I am in It to win. The only
way to win is to organize."
LOOKS LIKE A PATRIARCH.
Mgr. Stcphan is a man nearly seventy
years old. His venerable appearance Is
rendered patriarchal by his flowing gray
beard and hair. Ills priesthood lias been
devoted to the civilization ot the Indians.
What has been accomplished he will take
pains to let the public know. Gen. Thomas
A.-Ewing. the brother-in-law of Gen. Sher
man, up to the time of his death was asso
ciated with him In the administration of the
bureau of Catholic Indian missions, which
is a quasi governmental Institution, organ
ized for the purpose of controlling the
Catholic contract schools and disbursing
tnefunds allowed by Congress.
The bureau Is also largely supported by
charitable contributions from private
sources. Indeed, it would have lost its use
fulness a few years ago had It not been
for the munificence ot Miss Drciel, who
banded over to It upward of $200,000 to
carry on its work during the period that
ex-Commissioner Morgan was waging hts
bitter warfare on tie institution.

Japan has been quick to take advant
age of electrical applications In her mining
Industries. Although the cheap labor Is
rather an obstacle to the installation ot
power plants, they are making headway,
and. Judging: by the figures recently
given out ot the value of Japan's electrical
Imports, this country is gaining tbe busi
ness very rapidly. According to a Ger
man authority, the value of dynamos ex
ported from Germany to Japan In 1802 was
73,741 yen, which far exceeded that from
Great Britainor the United States; In 1894,
however, those Imported from Germany
amounted to 18.120 yen; from England,
49,222 yen. and those from the United
States, 145,200 yea.
