Hut Slio Haw Ilei'ii Mndo Happy by
There was one very happy lady yester
day afternoon at the handsome resilience
of lion. John I McLean on I street. It
was Mrs. McLean, and the cause or her
Cepecial joy was the letuin or her $1,0Q0
cape, which she lost the day before.
Tuesday afternoon Mrs. McLean was out
calling, and one of her visits was made at
the Hotel Niiriuiuidte It was there that
the h:indome garment was lost, but it
was not "missed until .Mrs McLean reached
home, and it was supposed that the cape
tiad fallen from her carriage. A care
ful search aud inquiry over the route she
had taken, failed to discover the missing
wrap, and the loss was reported to In
spector Hollinberger, and ho was in
structed to offer a mwaid or $20 for
The garment xvas, however, in snre and
honest hands, even though it had been
worth ten times a thousand dollars. The
engineer at the Normaudie had found it at
the hotel, aud, after making diligent In
quiry as toits owner and finding no claim
ant, concluded to hold it until the proper
person should come forward.
The loss was quite extensively adver

very highly, and yesterday morning the
engineer took the imich-sought-for wrap
to police headquarters, and received the
proffered cash It is also said that Mr--.
McLean paid him an additional reward
when she secured the cape.
It was purchased in Germany by its
owner when she was recently abroad, and
was a very expensive garment.

There is little likelihood that Post

office, will bo disturbed by the present
Administration till the conclusion of his

still a year and a half to serve.
The officials at the department with
whom The Times man talked jesterday,
and who ought to know all aliout the case,
think well or Mr. Willett as postmaster,
and say that his conduct or the office
has been above criticism, and that there
is no disposition to make a change of post
master till the expiration or Mr. Willctt's

ington next week, at Lhe National Theater,
after having sincelts last appearance here
.been presented in -all the larger cities of
the country, with, It is said, more than
ordinary success. Charles Hopper, who
created the title role, will again be seen
as the ingenious aud agile (Jhimmie. On
his former visit lie left a strong and agree
able impression, and will no doubt bo
warmly welcomed again in Washington.
He is supported by the same company that
was with him on his previous visit, and
all the .special scenery and elfects which
were shown hero will again be exhibited.
Those of our theatergoers who saw this
excellent organization and this clever play
will be glad to know that it Is to repeat

company still includes those sterling art

theatrical sensation herelast season, when
pcrsenled for the rirst time at the National
Theater, returns to this city with honors
well won durlngthe recent tour of thecoun
try, and will be presented next Monday at
the Columbia. The story of the play,
which is familiar to the many admirers of
Anthony Hope, is of the most absorbing
interest, replete with romantic situations,
through which runs a vein of brilliant
comedy. The dramatization presents intact
the charming tale of love, hate and in
trigue which the genius ot Hope has given,
made doubly attractive by the animated
pictures made possible by the talented
cotnpauy, characteristic of -Mr .Daniel Froh

Sousa comes fpr a single concert at the
Lafayette next -Jiunduy night. It is a
pleasure to be able, to announce that the
general desire to hear as many or Sousa's
own popular marches as possible at his con
certs here will again be gratified. Sousa's
success and popularity are doubtless as
much due to his musical compositions as to
his ability as a leader aud musician. He
is as widely known in this country through
his I rrcsistlblo -marches as for his magne
tism as a leader. -And Sousa leads one of
the finest bands in the world. Mr.
Sousa claims that every occupant of a
seat in his organization Is a musician or
uncommon skill, aud thoroughly worthy
or the company he Is in, which adds to
the pleasure of enjoying such delightful
music. All Sousa's men are models of de
votion to and admiration for their leader.
Next week brings to the Academy Hoyt's
famous comedy. "A Texas Steer," which
will be presented by what is promised as
the best company ever seen In the play.
"A Texas Steer" was played nearly four
hundred nights In New York city, and the
ovation it received at the last per
formance must have been very flatter
ing to the great plnyrlght. There were
wagon loads of flowers, and Mr. Hoyt
was forced to make a speech, in which
he stated that the clever satire on pres
ent day politics had proven the greatest
of any of the many pieces he had writ
ten. Summer prices are prevailing at the
house and the patrons are apppreciative.
"Jim, the Penman" will be the attraction
at the Grand Opera House next week. It
has been said by the press in all cities
has been presented this season on its tour
of revival, that the play Is identically
thesame that won over respect andstamped
itself indelibly on our minds, and the com
pany presenting' it in every respect equal
to the original. It includes Harrison J.

RESTORED TO niS OLD PLACE.
E. C. Fowler Xow Chief Cleric to
E. 0. Fowler, who for several years prior
to the second Cleveland Administration held
the position of chief clerk to the First
Assistant Postmaster General, but who
was reduced to an unimportant clerkship
in the department by Postmaster General
Bissell, has been reinstated at tire Instance
of First Assistant Postmabter General Perry
Heath. The order of reinstatement was
issued late yesterday, and Mr. Fowler
enters upon the duties of the chief clerk's
William H. Lamar, a nephew to the late
Justice Lamar, who was appointed from
Marylaud ot the instance of Senator Gor
man, and installed by Mr. Bissell Into the
office made vacant by the reduction of Mr.
Fowler, has been himself reduced by Gen.
Heath to a $1,400 clerkship, but has not
as yet been assigned to any division.
Mr. Fowler, who ia a Marylander, was
appointed chief clerk in tl.e office of the
First Assistant Postmaster-General on
August 24, 1889, and continued in that
position till May 25, 1894, when he was
reduced to a nine hundred dollar clerk
ship in the division of salaries and al
lowances. One month after his transfer
he was promoted to a $1,000 clerk
ship in the same division. Mr. Fowler,
previous to his appointment as chief clerk,
has held the offices of principal clerk to
the chief clerk ot the First Assistant, and
of chief ot the appointment division.
The change wasnotbroughtaboutbyany
political persuasion. Gen. Heath used to
haunt the department when he was only
a newspaper correspondent. In that way
he came to know Mr. Fowler, wjio has
al ways been the friend of the news worker.
When Heath grew great and came to the
department as the second officer in its
administration he looked for Fowler.
Then he learned the story or his reduction,
and promptly restored him to the old place.
A bunch of roses from the clerks in the
department bloomed yesterday on the desk

A Patriotic Xeeture by Archbishop
Keane Delivered In Rome.
A Rome letter to the Baltimore Sun
gives an account of a recent lecture in
that city by Archbishop Keane, before a
distinguished audience in the Palestrina
hall. The archbishop talked for over an
hour on the very attractive subject of
The chair was occupied, by the Hon. and
JUpHt R,ev. MqiiHJgnor Stqner, archbishop
titular of TrebizQnd. On tho jilatform
jwere teveraj archbishops and prelates,
among them being Motuilgnor Ccsan; Sam-jjut-etti,
archblgljop of Corinth; Monsig
uor Stanley; Monsignor D. J. O'Coimell,
domestic prelate of Wa holiness, late
rector of the American College; Very Rev.
Dr. W II. O'Coimell, present rector of
the same, and several others.
The lecture of Archbishop Keane was
-so wide in its reach, so attractive In the
examples quoted, so convincing iq the as
sertion of the principles underlying the
structure ot real civilization that it was
a great intellectual delight to hear and
In respect of what had preceded its
composition it had a certain resemblance
to the great work of Austin Caxton, which
BulwerLytton describes in hlsnovelof "The
Cnxlons." Its design was 0 immense, and
toward its execution a learning so vast and
various had administered that it appeared
as opening new vistas of thought and
imagination for Its hearers to contemplate.
Beginning with that splendid example ot
early civilization, presented by Greece five
ceuturies before the Christian era, the
lecturer drew a brilliant picture or that
halcyon time, when literature, poetry and
the arts all flourished iu a degree and
with a perfection such as has never been
attained in any nation before or since.
It was with evident knowledge and with
keen sympathy with what was meritorious
In this civilization that Archbishop Keane
dwelt on it lovingly. But he did not hesi
tate to point out the weaknesses and the
enors whioh it had within It, and which
were dinned Into the ears of the Athe
nians by Socrates until, in their indigna
tion and impatience of his reproaches,
they doomed him to death in older to bi
lence him. making him a martyr to pa
triotism and the well-being of his country.
But it was In his exposition ot the prin
ciples of Christian civilization that his ad
mirable method was displayed. Regarding
as the basis of this new message to thena
tions. the Christian principles ot love of
God and Jove or one's neighbor, he traced
the several attempts or men to make these
principles the rule of conduct, and the more
numerous attempts to wrench these prin
ciples to personal aggrandizement in its
variousonus and under its many pleas.
In reviewing the excesses and limita
tions committed by men, especially by
practical application ot principles differ
ent from those of the Christian dispensa
tion, the archbishop was led to make a
rapid review of the prominent evils of so
ciety, flowing from the excesses or ambi
tions Of rulers.
Coming down to the present day, he
showed in a masterly analysis the aims
ot Leo XIH. in his encyclical letters, to
restore the balance of justness and right
between the governed and the governors,
between the employers and the employed,
between capital and labor.
Finding striking examples of tyranny on
the one hand, of liberty degenerating into
license on the other, in the history ot the
various nations of Europe, he came to the
consideration of the principles and alms of
the Constitution of the United-States.
Then, in. a burst ot patriotic eloquence,
he depicted the safeguards that the wisdom
ot the ancients of the nation prepared for
for the due and Just relationships of the
Government and the people, one to the oth
er. He, iu brief but scathing terms terms,
told how when Caesarism sought to estab
lish itself there, the people rose in their
might and said to it: "Caesarism, you go
home!" And, again, when excels of liberal
ism seemed to rush into anarchy, the wis
dom of the nation pulled it up short, and
saved the people from the results of ex
cess. Tho great safeguards made with a view
to maintain the balance of individual right
aud national freedom had made of the
United States a nation founded on princi
ples that come ucarestto the basis of Chris

HARE IN A DOUBLE BILL.
"A Pnir of Spectacles" nnd a One-i
Act Piece Last Night
John Hare has but three bills in his
repertoire this season. The last ot them
he disclosed to a large audience at tho
Lafayette last night, and the balance ot
the week the repertoire will be repeated.
The program consisted ot "A Tair ot
Spectacles," and "When George Fourth
Was King" precneding It.
The latter was the novelty of the even
ing. It is a one-act play by Francis W.
Moore. The idea is very pretty. Two
weather-beaten old mariners, bachelors
both, loved the same girl, but she married
another before they had the courage to
propose. A little girl, the early-orphaned
otfsprlngot this union, becomes their ward.
But on her twentieth birthday they tell
her she is free to marry, and set them
selves to choosing a husband for her But
like daughter, like mother, she made her
own choice, while they fussed. Mr Moore
who is a London merchant, hasn't mado
anything ot an acting piece. His lines are,
however, good literature, and In the talk
of the two old seadogs he sustains tho
marine figures of speech with a pleasant;
Gilbert Hare made up well as Joshua,
an 1 Charles Groves read distinctly the lines
ot William. Frank Glllmore was a fine pic
ture as the young lover. Otherwise, the
personations were rather conventional Miss
Oram looked as lackadaisical and acted
with all the sentimentality ot a Maria
Edgeworf h romance. Thesettlngprcsented
a pretty picture.
Of "A Pair of Spectacles'' nothing mora
need be said. It is a cheerful, wholesome
comedy, that one is tetter for having
seen. Mr. Hare plays Benjamin Goldfinch
with appreciation or nil the humor of the
parts, in Mich a way that one is inclined
to look upon it as his best, at least his
most pleasing, performance. "Caste" will
be repeated tonight
