Tin lit: mik Titosn no doubt who linvo
not yet fully realized the polltlcnl vnluo
uf the movement In tho Interest of Sena
tor Giirmk, although It has grown stoad
ily since it first appeared on the surface
through tho columns of Tub Cuitic
Jtrioiiii. Thoughtless politicians, who
tnkc n superficial view of the character of
the American people, tiro disposed to let
it pass ns n matter of small moment
amidst the sound and fury of their own
conventional surroundings. Hut more
mid more tho rank and (lie of tho voters
in this country will lose faith In noisy
appeals to popular credulity and adopt n
political point of view more in keeping
with llieir true character. Tho temper of
our i cople is naturally grave and thought
ful, ns has been shown in every crisis
where the existence of tho republic has
depended upon stability of citizenship.
The levity which some observers have
tft down as one or our essential charac
teristics, is only a safety-valve for what it
5s not far wide of tho truth to term Puri
tanical self-repression. In tho beginning,
vhi'ii tho problem of politics was com
paratively simple and the intoxication of
successful rebellion still possessed U3, it
una natural that sounding rhetoric, other-
Aviso known as "spread-eagleism," should
sway the masses. Hut with the growth
of conflicting interests and the consequent
increasing complexity of politics, the
i;ravcr side of tho national character must
be depended upon to hold American in
stitutions in tho lino of conservative pro
gression. Wo see no reason to fear the
issue. And one ground for this po
sition is the fact, which no one
ivho is careful to study the feelings of tho
people can doubt, that the man who
quietly directed tho light in tho Senate
ngainst tho Force bill, has taken a hold
upon popularity not less strong than that
of the most brilliant statesman in tho
country to-day. It is now a familiar
story. 'Without waste of words, without
posing for effect, Senator Gouma.n aimed
nt and secured results of momentous im
portance with a dexterous Yankee direct
ness of purpose which thoroughly rcllccts
that admirable feature of the national
character to which reference has already
been made. He may reach no higher
place in tho affairs of the republic than
ho now occupies. But that he is likely
to grow In the estcciujif the people there
can be little doubt. They liko him be
cause he considers public questions in a
Mmple, serious way that stands in strik
ing contrast with tho mere time-server's
travesty of statesmanship. Tho dennnd
for such leaders, quiet, fertile in resources,
ttlf-reliant, public-spirited and odroit,
will grow just in proportion as the sense
of civic responsibility dovelops among the
masses and they gee rid of tho idea that
the .nicely adjusted machinery of this
Government may be depended upon to
The svi;-committj:k of the United States
Filiate, appointed to arrange a tariff
schedule, is at work in 'cw York City and
v ill bo in session during tho greater part
of this week. The fate of these American
citizens, tied down to the task of tariff
whacking while the rest of us are enjoy
ing the diversified pleasures of all sorts of
jKiliticnl and war developments and
rumors, should arouse the sympathy of

A Governor is to be elected. If JIc

it will be a vindication of hi? principles

iOT(i, A Legielature is to be chosen,
which will determine the successor of
Senator Sherman. The United States
Senate is becoming less Republican each
year, auden other Democrat within iti
fold will mean a great deal.
If the Republicans elect a majority of
that Legislature, the State will be re
gerrymandercd, and in 1802 they will be
aide to cany eighteen out of the twenty
one Congressional seats. This might
change the complexion of tho next no

' If McKikldv is victorious, he will likely

It is not improbable that the existing
factional quarrel of the leaders of that
parly in New York may result in the
choosing of a Western candidate, and the
fact of the victory achieved by n Demo
cratic Governor in Ohio over JIcKiklev
mid his bill, will be a most salient and po
tent argument in his favor.
In turn national interest will be leveled
at Buckcvedom because of tho avowal of
the Farmers' Alliance to play havoc with
the plans of the older parties. Its forco
will determine the strength of the organi
zation in the East, and demonstrate tho
power it may wield in the Presidential
.lection of the coming year. Tho Ohio
people recognize these matters and tho
battle for supremacy has already begun.

fear, because when such fanaticism per
ishes It is likely to be followed by wilder

porary indulges in a vast deal of fear for
very small reason. Indeed, it is a ques
tion whether It realiy feels ony fear ot
all or whether it simply found an ex
pression of fear tho most convenient me

their belief is but a holMiollof. But this
is llkowiso too true regarding many fol

"Pick" Russell of the llrm of Runcll,
Morgan it Co., the big Cincinnati printers,
was a warm personal friend ot tho late

"How aro your lungs, boys?" said Rm
scll, turning to tlio tluto fun-makers.
'All right," llicy responded In chorus.
"I'll put up a casa of champigne If
you fellows will yell 'low bridgo' tvlidn

The proposition wns accepted and just
os tho carriago containing tlio President
and jiarly passed tho hotel the leather
lunged trio sent up a mighty yell of "low
(iardeld looked In tho direction of tho
hotel, smiled, took off his lint and bowed
to tho party.
"Low bridge" was nulto familiar to
President Garllcld. lie got used to It In
the days when lie drove mules on a canal.
A tall, thin man, bearing in his faco
heroic lines of sclf-sacrillcc regarding tho
consumption of food, walked into an
Avenue saloon tho oilier night, with a
noi'eless tread, rendered still softer by his
hcclless shoes. Glorious autumnal sun
sets of Titlanic red would havo paled Hi
the tierce cardinal light that Illumined
ids pudgy nose and beamed from his
angular checks clean to where Ids largo
ears flopped in tho winds ot tlio electric
fans. One solitary button fastened the
frock coat, shiny as a suit of mail, around
his unfed form. A collar, whitened with
chalk swiped from a pooi-ronu, gauded
the long yellow droniedary-llkc neck.
Ono hand clasped with statesman-like
clutch n Inst year's newspaper. Tho re
maining five digits wero thrust in the ca
pacious nothingness of his inside Docket.
Advancing to the bar ho addressed the
dapper young person behind It with an
air of authority:
"Whisky, drop of lemon and sugar."
"Got tho price?"
"Fifteen cents to pay for tho stuff .'"
"Show up then."
Tho thirst v man wentdown in his pants
pocket, and after a struggle of some live
minutes yanked out thrco nickles which
he threw on the bar In a kingly fashion.
Tho bartender banged tho bottle on tho
mahogany and watched the thin mm
curiously, expecting to see tho glass lillod
to tho brim with red liquor. Tlio thin
man poised the bottle delicately between
his thumb and forefinger, letting the
whisky fall in the glass with n slow drip
that seemed to afford him inlenso delight,
When tho glass was one-third full lie
drained the contents, wiping his mouth
lightly on a towel.
"Young man, you imagined that I would
take what is vulgarly known as a Russian
bath drink," he exclaimed to tho bar
tender. "I was belting long odds you would."
"My sou, because my attire issomewlnt
lime and care-worn do not imagine that
the heart and soul of a gentlemen Is ab
sent from the body clothed so humbly '
"iJi,l your paraon, uovemor. Ju oi
Bowing haughtily, tho heart ami siul
of n gentleman condescended to uitice
the apology. Then walking to tlio free
lunch counter ho laid the h. and s. as
aforesaid'asido, and before the barkeeper
could quit his post the customer ompttc 1
the contents of a salad dish, into a capa
cious pocket, and swung himself through
the storm doors.
Kvcry man in Washington whom busi
ness or pleasure keeps up after midnight
paused a moment or two, if lie happeuci
to be passing up Twelfth street north
of the Avenue yesterday, to watch the
workmen engaged in pulling down a llttlo
brick houso that for ruauv vears stood
back from tho street. To tho man about
town llio sight awakened many memories,
and ghosts of good times gone by stalked
about the yard where the .mortar-soiled
bricks weic being piled. The place for
many years was known as The Inn, and
its reputation was not confined to tho
District but extended over the whole
For a long timo it was the only place in
town where the wanderer coulil get any
liquid rclrcslimcnts after tho hour of 12
had struck. After that hour one could
find a picturesque crowd of men standing
before the bar in thefrontroom, or sitting
around tho tables in the rear. There were
prize fighters, all-round sports, politicians,
editors, reporters, chiefs of bureaus, occa
sional Congressmen; in short, all kinds
and conditions of men. They were very
democratic and every one met on an
equal footing, brought into temporary
association by the conditions that closed
every other saloon in town. Often the
rosy dawn of day would lind tho crowd
still there, more or less the worse for
wear, but daylight is an enemy to pleasure
of this kind, and it would not lie long
before tlio crowd betook themselves to
their divers homes. Butthoglorics of the
placo have long since depaitcd, and when
tho workmen havo finished with it, there
will he only a memory and the ground left.

A CURIOSITY IN CRIME.
COLORED CONVICT COMMITS FOIt
EKY WHILE IN PRISON
Anil ConifH Within nil Are nr Getting
UN LlbMly ami S20.000 In Cash to
Lnjoy It With Dctolls of this New
A curiosity in crime has just been dis
covered ot Lansing, Kan. Tho contriver
of this now thing in an old art Is a colored
man named Ocorgo Lowls. Hols it iiallvo
of tho Old Dominion, a cavalryman, edu
cated and an expert penman, llo enlisted
in the Ilegular Army, and was transferred
to duly, as a lncfscngcr, in tho War De
partment. Some two years ago ho com
mitted forgery, which, being "contrary to
;ood order and military discipline," re
sulted in his being tried and sentenced to
ten years' imprisonment. Tills the Secre
tary out down to ilvo years, and Ljwis is
now serving his sentence.
Ills attempted crime, whllo In jail, was
again forgery, and he canio within an ace
ot getting iO.OOO ond his liberty by his
llclng so good a penman ho was assigned
to the task of writing letters for the con
victs. They would sometimes ,scnd out
money drafts, usually those of tho First
National Hank of Leavenworth on tho
Mercantile National Hank of New York.
Tlio story of what followed is lold in the
New York Sun and forms one of the most
interesting chapters of crime.
On February 10 last ono ot the convicts
got a draft for $1 and gave it to Lewis to
bo forwarded ina letter. Lowls bysmia
means obtained materials and raised tho
draft for $1 to ?3),O0O. It was a clover
piece of forgery. Lowls sent this draft to
tho Fountain Savings Dank of Richmond,
oi which Jt. t. tun is cashier. Ho sent
the draft for deposit to his own order, lie
also sent Mr. Hill a letter dated Harkncss,
Kansas. This letter stated that the draft
which had been fowarded represented tho
price received by Lewis for a ranch in
Kansas. He said that ho had sold the
ranch to nn Knglish nobleman, Lord
liandlct. through tho nobleman's agent,
John II. Scott. Lewis enclosed a letter
from Scott dated Trafalgar square, Char
ing Cross, London, January '20, 1831.
This letter notified Lewis that his princi
pal, Lord liandlct, had decided to pur
cha'o the ranch, and enclosed n draft for
520,000 for tho same. Tills left it to he in
ferred that Lewis had deposited the Kng
lish draft at Leaven worth for collection
and bought n draft on New York with
tbe procuds. Lowis's letter and the Scott
enclosure were typewritten.
Ltwis sent to tno Jdciimmut uiuk
another letter signed by b'cott, In which
it was said that Lord liandlct would soon
leave F.ngland In hisyachtand join Lewis
in San Francisco. This letter of Lewis
requested Cashier Hill to havo the draft
for ?20,0C0 on the Mercantile Dank certl
iicd that is, Cashier Hill was to write or
telegraph to tho Mercantile National
Dank people hero in New York and ask
if the i.r:ift of the First National Bank ot
Icavinwrtiih Tor $20,000 was all right.
Cashier f-X'hinek of the Mercantile looked
over the Hi it National's nccount nml saw
tbnt Ibf Leavenworth bankhad a balauce
of :'ti,Ct!0, nnd ho notified Hill that the
Leavenworth bank's draft for 520,003 was
till tight and would be honored. It was
forwarded and paid.
Dy this time it was approaching March
1. liight here steps in an accomplice or
Lewis, a nrgro, who Is known in the Lan
sing penitentiary as Sam Bryant, bat who
has had various aliast", such as Sam
Iteeves and 8am Cox. He hud also been
a soldier. Ho was sentenced from Shaw
nee Couniy, Kansas, for robbery, and his
term of five years expired on March -1.
After his release Dryant went to IJjd
worth it Co., printers, at Leavenworth,
presented on order purporting to come
from "Captain Hilliers, U. 8. A.," and n
letter head of tho Judge Advocate Gen
eral's oilice. The letter ordered twenty
iivo copies of the engraved letter head to
bo piloted as nearly fac simile as possible.
Dryant left tho work of receiving tho
forged letter heads to nn accomplice, who
has not et been discovered. This accom
plice took them to Lewis, alias Captain
llillicrs, in tho jail. Bryant reached
Ilichmond, ond on a check of Lewis' se
cured $250 of the $20,000 and went on to
Washington to put through tho last chap
ter oi Lewis swindle.
Warden Chase leceived on ono of tho
letter-heads of tho Adjutant-General's
Olllce of the War Department an order on
Inm signed William Iteeves. Warden
Chase took Iteeves to be a clerk in tho
War Department. Tho order appeared to
he certified by the Assistant Secretary of
War, and it notified Chaso that Lewis had
been pardoned and directed his release.
It is needless to say that tho order had
been forged by Lewis on ono of the spuri
ous letter-heads delivered to him In jail
by the second accomplice and by Lewis
sent to Bryant in Washington. All that
Dryant iiad to do was to send it back to
Chaso in a War Department envelope.
Dy way of preparing Chase's mind, Lewis
had already written to himself a letter
from "Iteeves" saying that Lewis' friends
in Washington were working for his par
don, and that no doubt in a few days a
happy decision would bo reached. That
letter ho had forwarded to Brvant for
transmission back to him.
The letter was read bv tho warden, as
all convicts' letters ore, and two days
later Chase received a telegram from
Washington, saying that a pardon had
been made out for lowis aud was on its
way. This telegram was signed "llecvcs."
Dy tho next mail came the forged official
announcement of Lewis' pardon. Just
here the plot broke down. Lewis was a
little bit too smart. In an appendix to
the official letter was a request that the
warden should hand the docuiucntover to
Lewis, so that Lewis might use it to
identify himself at tho Wur Department
and get any back pay due him. Warden
Chaso wrote to the Department that ho
did not liko to hand over tho pardon to
Lewis, as it was his only voucher for the
Ho asked tho War Department to sug
gest some other means of helping Lewis
to receive proper identification. Tho
officials wrote back to Chaso that no par
don hud been issued for Lewis. The jig
was up. Chase searched Lewis' cell and
found tho twenty-three unused letter
Lewis' freedom of communication with
tho outside world, it may bo presumed,
was considerably abridged after that.
The $10,7GO lay untouched in tho savings
bank in Dichmond. May -1 was settling
day between the Leavenworth bank and
the Mercantile National. The bank in
Leavenworth was debited witli 19,090 too
much. Telegraphic Iiiqniricsaiid answers
passed and tho S10.750 was recovered by
the Mercantile from the savings banks in
Dichmond. From Lewis $l!'0 more was
recovered. Dryant got away with his
little bit of money.

Tho District Attorney yesterday, in an
opinion requested by the Commissioners
In reply to a letter of Ilroderick Brothers'
junk dealers at 1107 B street north westi
decides that tho push-cart men who do
the business of buying and collecting
old iron, rags, paper and other old mater
ial and articles, are not liable to the li
cense tax of 340 per annum imposed by
the act of March 3, 1891. Tho said act is
applicable to those junk dealers and
dealers in second-hand personal property
who have places of business at wlitcu
they buy and sell such articles. The
opinion was approveu Dy tnc commis
Second-Hasd DnALEns. Upon tho re
quest of the Commissioners in the case of
Shloskey it Shopper!, who requested
an opinion as to whether they would have
to pay a junk dealer's license fora second
hand store in which most of tbe stock is
new, Detective Block to-day made a re
port. He says that Shloskey .t Shopper!
run three separate stores and though the
purchasing is done in ono store only, the
selling ot second-hand goods is don o in
all three. The act of March 3 requires
a license from all persons who aro
in tho business of buying aud
selling second-hand personal property.
And. in addition, it subjects thoso persons
to all tho valid laws, etc., governing such
business, one of which, being section 0 of
tho license regulations, providing that
licenses crontcd bv tlie District of Colum
bia shall only be good for the conducting
of busiuessat the location named therein.
Any other construction of tlio law, the
detective soys, would bo unfair to the
District and to dealers having but ono
ToTr.bT s Ixsvection Iaw. For somo
time past the Commissioners havo been
receiving complaints relating to the in
spection of lumber. It was charged that
some ot the big lumber dealers were vio
lating the law by not having their lumber
inspected or measured. Tins morning, at
llio request ol tho Commissioners, repre
sentatives of tlio linns of 12.
Jackson it Co. and Barber it
Boss, appeared -before the hoard.
They frankly admitted that they did not
permit an inspection of their lumber, as
they thought tho law was invalid and
unjust. Btsidcs this they say that tho
inspectois not only tako theicgal fee of
thirtv cents ner one thousand feet meas
ured, but, in many coses, demand a fee
of forty -live cents, the extra amount being
to pay them for tho trouble of handling
the lumber. They had reinsert to pay any
fees in order that tho validity of the law
governing tho measurement and inspec
tion of lumber might bo tested in tlio
courts. Tlio law requires that tlio in
spectors shall ho entitled to rcceivo, as
comppmation for inspecting, measuring
and marking, the sum of thirtv cents per
1,000 feet measure; ono half to bo paid by
thebuver and tho other half by tho seller.
The dealers claim that the expression
buyer and seller ia ambiguous, as it does
not explain whether tlio persons from
which tho dealers buy aro referred to as
tho tellers, and themselves as tho buyers,
or whethor tho parties to which thoy (tho
dealers) sell aro tho buyers, aro meant,
