ERNEST G. THOMPSON.
TWO EXTREMES 31EET.
Strange as It may seem, two conventions
diametrically opposed to each other in
principle and practice, day before yester
day adopted resolutions looking to the
same end. The rurity Congress in Ealtl
more took action against social evil, and
tbe Liquor Retailers' convention in-this
city vigorously voiced its opposition to
illicit places that poison society by tlielr
existence. These two extremes of the
temperance question, one radical in its
opposition to the liquor traffic, and the
other striving to protect its business Tjy
organization, should exert a powerful in
fluence against such lawlessness as is
found in our immoral. plague spot, and
here in the National Capital they have
ample opportunity to give the public a
practical demonstration of their resolu
tions. As a matter of fact, liquor dealers have
greater reason to stamp out such houses
than any other element of society. One
tenth of the number of places where liquor
Is sold in tbe city are houses of shame,
which neither pay license nor are sub
jected to regulations restricting the liquor
traffic. They keep open at all hours of
the day and do a thriving business on Sun
day, and it is safe to assert that their ag
gregate retail sales of liquor will amount
in money to one tenth of the retail liquor
trade of the city. Tlien there is the in
justice of permitting them to sell without
license, while every saloon is compelled to
pay a fee of S40O each year. Terhaps In
the eyes of a few people the excise board
may be justified in violating to such an
extent a law it is pledged to enforce, and
it is more than likely its members will be
called to account before their present
term ot ofrice expires.
There are eighty-one of these houses sell
ing liquor without license, and the loss
to the District in Tcvcnue provided they
were charged the customary fee is
532,100. This is a sum sufficient to light
our parks, and prevent them from becoming
resorts for disreputable characters.
ORGANIZE A rEOPLE'STHUST.
UnliKc most other stock companies that
of the Sugar Trust Is unlisted and an invest
ment in its Eccurities is a good deal like
buying the fmoke of Mount Vesuvius. For
that reason Mr. W. II. Granbury, chairman
of the Committee on Unlisted Securities
in the New York Stock Exchange, offered a
resolution demanding that the Sugar Trust
furnish tuch a report of lis affairs as was
submitted by other corporations. In ex
planation or the resolution Mr. Granbury
said the Trust had refused to answer ccm
municatlons on the subject, aud had entirely
ignored his correspondence, and that in the
interests or fair dealing and for the pro
tection of investors he believed the reso
lution should be adopted.
The Board of Forty Governors of tbe
Stock Exchange, to whom the .resolution,
was submitted, immediately flew into a
passion at the insult. This storm of in
dignation -would have done credit to the
sheet-Iron clamor of a theatrical cyclone,
and after each had delivered himself or
a. series of barbed wire denunciations the
resolution was unanimously Toted dawn.

investors? Almost everybody conversant

Tleiird of tlio He-lunations.
Up to a late hour last night Senor Don
"Domingo Gar.a, the Chilian minister, had
received no confirmation f the report
that the Chilian cabinet hail resigned.
Mr. Owen McGarr. the secretary of the
United States legation in Chill, who was
visiting Senor Gana last evening, said that
when he left Chili a few weeks ago there
were no indications of a cabinet crisis.
The government, he said, appears to
possess the confidence of the people, and
the cabinet was looked upon as a thoroughly
There were in Chili, however, three po
litical parties the Balmacldists,- the Lib
erals, and the Radicals and each party
wa3 represented in the cabinet, as It was
in the Chilian Congress. Xlthcr two were
stronger than the third, aud should two
combine against the other the cabinet
would, ot course, be dissolved.
The Chilian method of government wan
very Elmllar to that of the English, and
an adverse vote in Congress on any propo
sition ot the prime minister would result
in the cabinet resigning. A cabinet crisis
did not imply a revolution, but simply a
new cabinet la accord with the sentiment
ot the Congress.
The cabinet reported to have resigned
was composed as follows: Prime minister,
Manuel Recabarren, interior department;
foreign afrairs, Claudlo Nattc; justice and
public instruction, Mariano Sanchez Fonte

throughout and not a burlesque at other
