.M tTHEMATICS FOR THE .MILLION.
There aro 230,000 people in Washington.
They possess, on a reasonable assessment,
0500,000,000 of property. 52,000 per capita
a wealthy community. There aro twentj
flvo men in the United States who
possess far above 5500,000,000 $20,000,
000 per capita. Tho 250,000 people in Wash
ington use 10.000 times as much sugar as the
twenty-fl o millionaires, and If a tariff tax is
put on sugar they will pay 10,000 times as
much sugar tax, though they own no more
property than tho plutocrats. That is why
the twenty-flvo believe in a tax on sugar.
That is why the 250.000 prefer a tux on in
comes. OV THE .METROPOLITAN PRESS.
If The Times attempts to
occupy the same field and
Senator from champion the samo cause as
Nevada. l0 other papers in this Dis
trict its career will bo cir
cumscribed and limited in duration. All the
papers hero are organs of tho Demo
Eepublican party. Dot there aro changes
of party policy with the changes of adminis
tration. It is a ehango in tho party pie. The
party policy is the Bamo.
The gold standard contraction has been the
policy of every administration for tho past
twenty years. If jou oppose that party
and favor honest money and good times yen
must rely for patronage and support on per
sons who are not receiving or expecting gov
ernment patronage. Whether thti aro enough
people in the District who would prefer good
government and prosperity for tho country
at large to the chance of receiving
some favor from the money powers through
their servants and employ es in the various
departments of tho government will soon be
made known. I believe tho time has arrived
when the truth can be spoken with safety in
the capital of tho nation with a prospect of a
favorable hearing. Tho utter destruction of
business and the want and misery which
exist throughout tho country are tho results
of tho wickedness of tho Harrison-Cleveland
policy, and as contraction goes on and times
grow worso tho people will want to know
the reason whv, and if jou will tell them the
truth thej will take jour paper, and you will
make a sjecess in a new and unoccupied field
There Is no room for The Times on the ad
ministration side of all questions. Tho ad
ministration has got all the papers it can
support, and tho business of defending tho
administration nnd justifyingitssubserviency
to tho money power is overdone. Tho busi
ness of exposing tho fraud and usurpation of
the geld combination, which rules all admin
istrations, is new and important. The gold
kings must bo overthrown, or the people will
be slave. If jourpapertakes the side of the
people against their oppressors it will suc
ceed. It has my best wishes.

TORTITUDE AM) FAITH.
It is not bo very hard to bo brav e. But to

which never complains, which brings the tears
of bravery and fortitude and self-abnegation

tills is harder. It is almost superhuman. It

If the gentlemen in the Senate and noaso

conflicting trusts, and special Interests, and
lobbies, for this Industrial depression and
these hard times If these Imagine for a mo
ment that they can escape detection and ex
posure they are entirely mistaken. You can't
fool the people all the time. They havo al
ready scented this betrayal of this right of
theirs that they should bo really represented,
this right that they should know if venal mo
tives actuate their servant". Llttlo of tho real
ws of tho proceedings ofCongress is printed ;
M if the spread of the truth is slow, tho wrath
of the people will be the quicker. Honest,
straightforward, willing men havo nothing to
fear. Tho jobbers are the ones who had
better begin to protect themselves. But
they cannot protect themselves. Dishonesty
and error and venality defeat themselves.
THE FALL or BRECKINRIDGE.

years since the day when sho first overenmo
his scruples and persuaded him to get into that
closed carnage she has kept him absolutory
in her power with oft-repeated ingenious iter

elso for him to do than to keep faith with her

Tho basis of representation in tho next Re
publican National convention will not be
changed. The demand for a change cornea
almost exclusively from the East, Tho Im
pression Is conveyed that Eastern politicians
desire tho ehango because they havo fears
that Gen. Harrison will bo nominated again
by Southern Republicans. This is not tho real
reason. The fear is that through business
sympathythe South and West will combine,
not only to namo tho candidate, but to make
the platform. Tho East has always dom
inated in tho matter of platform making,
although it has not been strong enough to
make a candidate. With the slnglo exception
of Blalno, in 1831, tho West has named the
candidato since 1856. Every Western candi
date has been successful, with tho two excep
tions of Blaine and Harrison. Since I860
every Democratic candidate has lieen selected
with a special view to carry Now 1ork, and
every candidate, except McCIellan, has been
a New Yorker, and even he was as much
a citizen of that stato as he was of New
Tho South and the West aro every year be
coming more closely identified in business
nnd a strong feeling ofunion is growing up
between these regions. Already a very large
part of the grain of tho West is seeking an
outlet by tho way of tho Mississippi rivor, and
through Newport News, and more will follow.
The belief is steadily growing in the West and
tho South that the East Is inimical to them,
and such .i belief tends to bring about closer
pollticil alliances. If tho proposed chungo in
tho basis of representation Is made, it will
drive the South and Wist closer together.

of tho Tenth district, notified his friends a

The Crjlng Need of statesmen.
To tho Editor of The Times-
The cardinal principles which support political
platforms are knocked donn and setup again
like puppets upon the stage, according as It best
subserves the selfishness of part) leaders. Tho
principles of the two great parties have been
perverted, and the wheels of leglslatton have
too often, alas, been turned by their crafty
leaders, not for tho public good, but rather for
private gain An orator onco compared tho old
party platforms to a beautiful highway, that
opened up broad and stately with trees planted
on either side to tempt tho traveler, but soon It
became narrow and narrower, and at last
ended in a squirrel track and rnn up a trco, so
unspoakably sad and barren have como tho
bright promises held out by each of the old
parties at tho times when they have taken in
band the reins of power
Tho wonderful progress and prosperity of the
country havo not been becauso of Its dominant
politics, but In spite of them. Had tho enormous
wealth of tho country, through tho agency of
wise laws, been directed Into legttlmato chan
nels and placed la tho hands of its rightful
owners, wo should not to-day be confronted with
tho anomalous condition of starring in a land of
plenty Tho land baron, tho stock gambler,
and the trust king are chief among tho parasites
that are sucking tho life blood of the nation.
As soon as the country rids itself of these leeches
it will take on a healthy growth, and wo shall
once more become a thrifty and con
tented people Upon tho platform of ordinary
life must wo work for better government The
peaceful attainment of reforms Is only
roado possible through tho ballot-box. The
people should be careful In tho selection of their
leaders. It should be men rather than measures.
At no time In its history ha the country stood in
greater need of its statesmen. O W. L.

CORRIDOR AND CURB.
"There Is more and more evidence that the
President will veto the seigniorage bill," said
the philosopher last night, "but whether he
does or not, there is no question, as jou said
in The Times this morning, that a fight for
free silver is coming on. I am a free-silver
man myself, but I don't pretend that some
thingelse wouldn't satisfy the West. Biggins
and Lodge have seen the writing on the wall;
and Coloradan though I am, I honestly be
lieve that if somebody, an Eastern man pre
ferred, were to stand up and mako a fight for
silver, or bettor, because it would be easier,
for some good, honest scheme of bimetallism,
that nothing could prevent him from winning
tho next Presidential nominee. We don't llko
tho Democrats out west. They havo given us
Cleveland and the Populists, who have beaten
us. Many Western states would still like to
bo devoted to the Republican party, but they
will not bo because they can not be. I: is a
case of self-defense. That is why I tell you
that a really great and far-seeing leader has
an opportunity of a life-time.
I hope that ex-Governor George Peabody
Wetmore, of Rhode Island, will como to the
Senate. Ho is a Republican of Republicans,
a Democrat of Democrats. Once when he
was governor, ho gave a reception in his im
mense palace at Newport, his palace bigger
by the expense of 51,000,000 tnan it was when
ho took it, and then it had cost -2,000.000.
AH the village people, tho farmers and the
fishermen, as well as tho swells, trooped in on
the reception evening over his carpets and the
bottom of his curtains nnd his chairs. Some
one, a veryfastldious person, no doubt, called
the attention of the governor to the hiivoc

"They will ruin jour carpets, governor,"

"In tho matter of providing suitable
fenders for street cars the Commissioners
evinced great interest," said Commissioner
Ross, when approached on tho absorbing
theme, "and the board has discussed the rela
tive merits of many designs. There are two
which me t with the greatest favor, one of
which is in uso on the Rock Creek railway
and tho other is being experimented with on
the Eckington line.
"I hav e tried to discover, timo to pet tho
board together and make an official examina
tion of the practical working of the Ecking

far prevented our going out there. It is not
u mutter of tolerance but an urgent neces

that fatalities will soon bo merely a matter
of history as far as tho street cars are con

T. F. Schneider, "to lay tracks for a trolley
road through the northwestern portion cf tho
city. The route of tho lino has been deter
mined, nnd it has also been determined, by
actual investigation, that tho residents

THE SINGLE TAX REVIVAL.
Iongstrcct Continues Ills Talks with
the Aid of Illustrative Diagrams.
Tho single tax meeting now being held
nightly nt 919 F street northwe-t by Dr.
Longstreet, of Worcester, Mass , were con
tinued last evening. Dr. Longstreet re
viewed briefly his lecture of tho previous
evening, and then j roereded to discuss the ad
vantages of a free interchange of commodities
between Individuals, his object being to show
that al solute free trade between all people
and all countries would be beneficial.
He defined ver fully the meaning of the
terms rent and wages, and by the aid of
elaborate diagrams he showed how the
produco d the country is divided between
rent and wages. Speculation in land Increases
the stare that goes to rent and reduces the
entire fund that is to be divided between both.
The single tax, by destroying land specula
tion, would increase wages, both bv increas
ing production and bv reducing rent, Dr.
Longstreet maintained. The diagrams made
the points of his argument very clar. while
telling Illustration: and stories added interest
to an otherwise drv subject.
Dr. Longstreet has considerable ability as
an elocutionist and well displayed it In the
various stories and quotations introduced In
Questions from the audience were answered
nt the close of the lecture. Tho meetings will
be continued a few days longer.
Sunday evening Dr. Longstreet expects to

CLOAK ROOM AND GALLERY.
Senator Stockbridge, of Michigan, talks em
phatically at times. When asked yesterday
what he thought of the proposition to bo dis
cussed by tho Houso Labor Committee that a
portfolio of labor be added to tho Cabinet,
ho said, rather brusquely, without looking up :
"Blamed nonsenso; committee don't want it;
Mr. Wright don't want it absolutely unnec
essary. Commissioner does all the work at
present, and does it well." He then dropped
his paper, and went on to gay that while he
bad no objection to a recognition of labor in
terests he thought that the Secretary of Agri
culture really represented the labor world.
I suggested that tho example set in cevcrnl
foreign countries of combining two ministerial
offices be followed here, and that the Secre
tary of Agriculture bo named the Secretary of
Labor and Agriculture, having n commissioner
for each department under him. "That is a
first-rate idea," said the Senator, "and would
answer the purposo very well."

There were a number of cases of importance
on nt the Supreme Court )esterJay, and sev
eral distinguished advocates wero present.
Judge John F. Dillon, tho counsel of the
Goulds, was on hand, and received a running
nod first from nil the justices on one side of
tho Chief Justice and then on the other. Ex
Senator Edmunds was opposed to ex-Secretary
Benjamin Bristow in a suit against the
Boston Waterworks Company, ,ind it was
worth noticing that even the ex-secretary was
sufficiently rattled to havo an unsteady hand
when he camo into the presence of the court
of courts. However, few judicial bodies havo
nine men sitting as well. In an appeal case in
the Queen's Bench Division It is rare that
four orflve judges are on the dais, and when
the House of Lords sits as an appellate court
not more than a half dozen of the law lords
usual!) aoiear. A certain amount of thb
sort of nervousness seems to exist with the
best lawyers, orators, and actors.
Speaking of cx-benator Edmunds, I ran
acrcss him the other day in the Congressional
Library drawing books. He asked the
librarian for nine or ten of the less recent
works for Mrs. Edmunds, and added, as ho
pitched up a Jaw-book he bad brought with
him: "In these days I am doing absolutely
nothing but reading and studying law." Tho
ex-Senator now has n very large nnd remu
nerative practice before theSufreme Court
and is making up for the time he lost from
money-making pursuits while in the Senate.
There has been a need in Washington for
some years past of competent men to act for
out-ol-town lawjers who havo occasional
business before the court, but cannot well
come on to argue them, and a good share of
this business ha3 come to the Vermont ex
Senator. The salt interests, although their presence
has not been so much nctieed and commented
on as that of tho sugar men, have been vigor-
oulj- at work beneath the surface. Delega
tions representing thl3 industry have been
coming and going steadil) the post
fortnight, although they have not kept the
same lobby constantly on the field that tho
sugar and whisky and other people have.
Senator Hill has been one or those whom the
salt people have ben badgering the most per
sistently, the great Interests in Central New
York being, jerbaps, the met active in urging
their case. Gormap, too. has had to meet
them, also the PeLLSjlvamaus and the Michi

Senator Stewart says, with considerable
emphasis, that the Republican silver Senators
of ths West will not exrt great efforts in be
half of thei' eastern co'Ieagues in tho tariff
fight. "Would you not think," he asked,
dramatically, almo-t in fas, "that they would
want to cure for silver, too? Is it not re
markable that thej shall deliberately prefer
hard times to prospentv , such as silver would
bring" When the Senator had sufflcientlj
recovered from hb emotions to define just
what the silver men would do he outlined
their position as that of men who were pro
tectionists, but would not be much benefited
bj- it. " o are ruined ulready, and the tariff
bill cannot hurt us verj- much. It is as
though jour house was on fire and there was
no opportunitj to save n part of the furni

susgested that he would learn in the Senate.
"That's what papa sajs." ho replied, but inti
mated that he did not think s0 himself. He
was independent enough to express his opin

the Senators' appearance and conduct, nnd
without going into details I can say that he

What Causes Red Hair.
From the American Hairdresser.
Science explains tho phenomenon of red
bair thus: It is caused by a superabundance
of iron in the blood. This it is that imparts
tho vigor, the elasticity, the great vitality, tho
overflowing and thoroughly healthy animal
life that runs not through tho veins of the
ruddy-haired, and this strong, sentient ani
mal Hie is what renders them more intense
in all theit emotions than their more languid
fellow-creatures, Tho excess of iron Is also
the cause of freckles on tho peculiarly clear,
white skin which alwavs accompanies red
hair. The skin Is abnormally sensitlvo to tho
action of the sun's rays, which not rnly bring
out the little brown spots in abundance, but
also burn like a mustard plaster, producing a
queer, creepj sensation, a3 if the sin were

CALLED DOYW FITZSIMMONS.
A Pugilisfic Ncvvarkcr Calls Forth the
Clnrct from Robert's Nose.
New York, March 21. Bob Fitzsimrnon
came into town from Newark, N. J., thl3 af
ternoon, and, walking into tho office of a
sporting paper, said: "I want to pick up
this challenge Coibett made in Flor
ida on behalf of Dan Creedon for
$5,000. I want particularly to meet Creedon,
because I have heard that Corbett says he is
the only man whom the great champion can
not hit on tho nose whenever ho wants to.
W hj-, I'll bet Corbett 81,000 that he can t hit
me on the nose before I do tho same thing to
him, and another i 1.000 that I can touch him
on that feature twice to his once."
There was in tho party a young 123-pound
aspirant for pugili-t honors from Newark. N.
J. It was suggested that Fitzsimmons put on
tho gloves with him. The Newarker flew at
the big chap and brought his five-ounce glovo
down with a slash on ritzsimmnn3, cutting a
lontr gosh on tho right sido of that member
and drawing no little amount of claret. This
brought forth a good many smiles in view of
tho sizing up Corbett had received.
