Tim proposition to gl?e up the Armory
Lot to the steam railways for n Union Depot Is
one which onRlit to lio defeated, sodeclilrt-ly
as to utterly dlsonttrp;e all similar schemes.
It Is liad enongh tolnvo noverinnent build'.
Sngs gradually filling tip the public parks of
the Capital. There Is none too ranch vacant
grnnnd In the city, an.l It would be belter to
Increase than to diminish the area of the
narrations. Hut putting public buildings
upon public ground has a certain Justlflca
Ion which cannot be found for turning ttiem
over to prlvatH corporations. The bill to
loctle a Union Depot on the Mall Is utterly
Tho Traction Uillroad bill which lias
pased the House ought to go no further.
There Is no public need of such a gridiron
system of tracks. The existing lines, with
necessary extensions nnd proper Improve
ments, can easily carry all the traffic, and
the lierdlcs furnish all the competition
needed. The passage of the cable scheme
through the House simply shows what a
strong and adroit lobby can do with a purely
speculative measure. Could this franchise
lie secured, it would be enormously valuable
liefore a single rail was laid or a dollar leg III
ruatelv expended. We cannot believe that
it will pai the Senate.
As a really clever and gifted debater,
Senator Ingalls does not do himself Justice
by repeating the stale trash about England
being "always a ruffian, coward, and bully
"among the nations of the earth; insolent
"to the weak, tyrannical to the feeble,
"cringing and obsequious to the strong."
Such pabulum may suit the tastes of O'Dyna
mite Hossa and his ilk, but every student of
history knows It to be nonsense. Such
language has been used about every nation
on earth, not by aur means excepting the
United Mates, and that by our own citizens.
It does not prove anythlug whatever. Every
nation has sometimes "bullied" the weak
on occasion, and sometimes yielded to
superior strength. The trouble about wast
ing such strong language on trilling provo
cation is that it leaves none fitly to charac
terize real national crimes, such as the par
tition of Poland.
There Is a great deal of talk about wicked
lie's in this cily. Some people say there is
au alarming amount of it; others spring up
and say there is remarkably little. Judging
by the figures presented on the subject, we
are a pretty bad lot, but judglog by the as
sertions of others, we are phenomenally good.
Now, whatever be our exact standing in re
lation to other titles, there ought to be a de
termined effort to Improve the moral tone of
this. Of course it is unpleasant to be
pilnled blacker than we are, and whenever
auythiug i3 published showing a serious
etate of things in our midst a volume of pro
tests may be looked for. Any number of
our citizens are ready to reply that we are
better than any other city, and to denounce
these attempts to degrade us by foul accusa
tions against our purity. Theordinary moral
citizen Buds it hard to believe that there isa
great amount of evil rioting around here. It
does not come in his Hue and he does not
know it exists, consequently he is indignant
at these accusations against our municipal
It really seems incredible that this can
be a particularly vicious community. It is
lertainly not a disorderly one Our Sun
days are quiet; we never have mobs, or
great noisy, disorderly demonstrations of any
sort. If there is a great amount of juvenile
depravity, there is a vastly greater amount
of hearty innocent childhood brightening our
streets. Certainly the crime here is not
flagrant and notorious. We present Mich a
respectable appearance we can liirdly be
lle! e it exists at all. Hut we must remem
ber that to rise up and say we are luuoceiit,
no matter how loudly, does not prove it.
Neither does it make the city more moral to
ignore facts which have beou carefully col
lected and tnolerately (stated by persons
really trying to do good. No matter how
wlckel New liork or Chicago may be, there
is a certain amount of vice here, and it Is far
too great, whatever may be its exact relative
amount compared with other cities. We
ought not to be satisfied with mediocrity in
morals. We ought to be superior to any
other place in the country in morals as well
as in education, health, and many other
matters. Nothing but aspiring to a very
high point will even bring us to it, either as
Individuals or communities, and we Miould
therefore hare a high ideal before us and
work earnestly aud intelligently toward it.
Experience has shown that the most power
ful lever to elevate society is education. No
elfjrt to help humanity does so much good
as that which makes intelligent aud vir
tuous youth. It Is the children and young
people whom it pays best to couvert and
care for. No amount of money or effort is
wasted which teaches them right living aud
rlghtthinklug. We need abundant schools,
well taught, and we need better resources
for our children out of school hours.
Tiik Siimiay II UK a LU has expressed its
disapproval of the publication of alarming
btatemeuU which exceed the truth and give
a morbid view of the moral utate of this
community. At the same time we suggeBt
remedies for the evils that really exist, aud
we urge aul shall continue to urge pre
ventive measures against the Increase of
wickedues3. There should be intellectual
training, and moral training in the schools,
aud there should also be mauual training.
It is well known tint idleness Is the most
fruitful parent of crime. Teach our boys
aud girls something to do with their hands.
Teach them skill which they will 1,0011 like
to exercise, aud which will keep them out of
mischief. Then provide them wholesome
recreation. That is something which cati be
done without great outlay. It does not need
a large appropriation to provide Jilay
grounds for our chlldreu. They already
exist. All that is needed is to free them
from a lot of red lape-restriitlous, which
almost iuulllfy the object for which tlicj
were created, The parks of this city should
be great play grounds for young aud old. It
is absurd to narrow their uso dowu to mere
ornament a giass jdot aud some tres,
through which one may follow a serpentine
gravel walk, or where one may sit ou .1 hard
bench. The parks were more ube last sum
mer than they hare been before for many
years, because Col, Wilson partially blithel
the order for keejduuil the grass so far ns
(hildruu were co'icernel, lu some jurks
the children rompel all over the grass, as
they should. They were bottei for it aud
the grass was no wotso, 'lhe wtuthrf
beaten slgus stood around the edges, robbed
of their terror, and the watchmen kept
order with discrimination and Judgment;
they kept tramps off the grass and let the
the thlldieu on. Wo naut mire of this
wise jiolloy In those who are charged with
these iuiportaut matters. Let the privilege
be extended next summer to playing games
t) tho parks, the proper place fur thtin.

Ever Blnco tho Chinese ball the papers have been
full of the most startling statements about the ex
traordinary numbers and abnormal appetites ot the
guests. Tho papers out or town were pirttculirly
rich In descriptions ot the scramble and the crush.
The Washington correspondents ot leading Journals
all over tho country roso to tho occasion, and the
people far andwlde have becntrcatedto cxaggcralcd
accounts of this unusual affair as a tjpeot social
festivity in Washington. Before tho matter Is
dropped it Is but Just to call attention to a phase 01
the question that has been overlooked. There arc
large numbers ot people who come rroin alloter
tho country to stay a little while In Washington.
They are Imbued with thoroughly democratic Ideas,
and they regard any entertainment given in the
house of the President, a Cabinet Minister, or such
public characters as a sort ot public affair. 1 r they
have no official claim lo an Invitation they know
someone who has, and whose Invltallonis elastic
enough to Include them. In the case of the Chinese
Ministers handsoracliall.lt seemed to this class ot
persons as a sort or national affair. The Chinese
nation entertaining tho American, one American
had as much Tight Jo go as another, and the added
element of curiosity drew tho crowd that has made
so much talk. Tho real society ot Washington Is
not dazzled by such an entertainment, and when
there It does not scramble for terrapin, nor guzzle
champagne, but It does suffer the Imputation opon
It, because a lot of transient people, hanging lo lis
outskirts by some temporary thread of official con
nectlons, take too liberal a view of Ihc nature of
Washington entertainments and are anxious to
absorb s raucti as possible of them In the limited
time at their disposal.

successful players, whllu living In nu atmosphere ol
Arcadian sentimentality, come to have as firm a
grip on their flu vines as the most hard-licnded,
hard rislcil money getter lo be met lu the marts of
tralc. 'there are exceptions, however, and
conspicuous among them Is l'dwlu Booth. How
many great nctors or artists are there who vvoald
year after year sacrifice Ihousaiids of dollars to a
mere sentiment, us he has d jnc by his persistent rc

after the shocking tragedy of the llth of April was
natural, an I perlups discreet on his part;hulfor fif
teen years there has been no really god reason for his
action. That he persists lu his refusal shows his
nightly mountings of hollow sentiment have not cat
loused his heart.
It is not generally known th it tvv o se nous ago an
extraordinary effort was made to Induce Booth to

headed by no less a 11 uue Hun that ot 1'resldcut

Albaugh agreed to give Iilm practically tho gross
receipts of tho engagement, llut all iu vain. Even
this appeal, than whleh no more flattering one was
ever made to an aclor, his deep rooted prejudice re

logo up so many stairs, and re illy wonler how

He wanted also au actor to play the Lord a small

evinced a disposition tn rant. Ills rngspement wllh
Mr. Daly for the Lord was made wllh the distinct
understanding that he mnst speak the lines as Daly
wanted them. Mr. W llllam (lllbctl, a stipetlot char
acter Actor, was selected to play tho patt ot Sly,
hitherto played sa a drunken bntToonof tho lowes
Rtoyellng sort) but Mr. Daly Itisisled that Ihc
drunken antics tio abandoned, and tho wit and phi
losophy ot the character be most emphasized. Ho
was equally particular Inregstd to every detail of
eostnnre and scenery nnd thedreorallonh; amlthcso
ate all strictly and accurately historical, even to tho
use of a set of antique fnrnlluro which came from a
Venetian palaco of tho X Vim eenlnry, tho period ot

It has been so often positively and aulhorllallvely
announced that Mrs. James Brown Potter was en.
giged to Messrs. Abbey on tt-chocltcl for a theatri
cal starring tour In this cunntry tint I called on Mr.
tchoclTel,nnl Jocosely nsked him lu let 1110 have a
copy ot tho contract wllh tho lady, "Tho real,
gcnulno one?" ho nsked, laughingly. "Oh, I sup
pose yon havo only one," I replied. "And yon wnnt
a copy for publication?" "Why not? Tho public
would like lo sic II?" "And will you print It In
full?" "Certainly." "Then you Bhnll tmvo il nn
that condition only," and ho handed me, from n
number In the drawer ut his desk, a blank form that
was headed, "Sharing contract." "And havo yon no
other with Mrs. Potter?" "No, nml never had."
Mrs. HchocfTcl wns present Agnes Booth, on Iho

money out of her nl the term? sho then demanded,
but 1 fancy they did not think so well nt a second
venturo on tlio conditions llio lady wished to exact,
and It came nut, lu tho cotirso of the conversation,
that Mr. Abbey did not Hunk highly of professional
beauties' In thclrown country that they nro most
honored away from home. This may have been a
conclusion drawn from experience with Mts Lang
try, hero and In I'ngland, where sho was novcr a
financial success as here, whcio alio wns a social
failure. But I think that Mrs. Poller Is so thor
oughly an American beauty, bo charming n lady In
the very best society, and bo pleasing an nctrcss,
that she could not fall of a great success on the
I asked Mrs. Booth who wis tho modfsle who "de

question becomes ono ot national Importance, and
It Is your duty to the nation, nnd particularly to so

"Ohl Bho would blush lo find herself famous," said
Mrs. Booth; "and besides she Is oneot thoso who

smilingly shook her head, not tn denial, tint in
