ir each sunsciiini it got another.
It has proved a popular notion, this Idea
that if each subscriber to The Times got
another. It has been no trouble, but, on the
contrary, a pleasure to hundreds. Continually
tho news comes to this office that here and
there subscriber by the dozen have been
obtained where ono regular subscriber for tho
paper has been merely handed his own copy
to a friend or to somo acquaintance, and that
friend or acquaintance has passed the paper
along or lias handed his own copy to another
friend or acquaintance, and so the contagion
has spread and hundreds of copies have actu
ally been added to our circulation. It is a
trilling thing to do, to hand this paper to a
friend. So kindly do it. It will be a favc- to
the friend, a favor to us.
It will perhaps be recalled that Lincoln
how great and good he was! who has been
greater or better in this republic? made a
speech at Lowell once to an excited crowd of
plain people (and it was the plain people that
he lov ed most of all), and in It criticised the
utterances of a certain local editor, who had
criticised certain workmen In the town for
"I tell this editor," said Lincoln, "that he
ought to be thankful that he lhes in a town
where workingmen ran strike."
And so he ought to have been; and so are
all of us fortunate to live ina country where
labor is free, or ought to be, and tries to bo;
and it will be a sorry day if sober efforts
should bo made to deprcciilo the plain, every
day people, who are obliged to work for a
living, tho plain, laboring men, who make the
capitalist possible, and who for that reason
ha; e a right to bo jealous of any encroach
ments upon the part of their own poor crea
tures. It is a fortunate thing that tho Coxey army,
so called, Is permitted to proceed peaceably
towards Washington. It will be still more
fortunato if these hapless travelers, seeking
they know not what, coming hither to urge
the redress of wrongs, not imaginary by any
means, though vague perhaps. It is well
that they aro coming peaceably, and It will bo
better still 11 tho people of this city, and es
pecially tho police authorities, and indeed the
people ol tho country, treat thi3 movement
seriously. It will bo w ell if they imitated the
attitude of The Time, for The Times has
been, and is, and will be. the friend of labor.
It is tho friend, and it will be, of tho man
who seeks honest employment and cannot
find it. It will defend tho man who has to
tramp, he knows not why nor whither; and it
will the better servo the general community if
it conserves fearlessly and without favor the
rights of all its friends and followers.
THE PURPOSE Or "THE TIMES."
We print with considerable regret, and as
a matter of necessity merely, in order to point
a mora), the following from a Chicago publi
cation called tho Rniln ay Times. Tho article
is expurgated. It was not fit to print in full:
The Railway Times Is in receipt of the Drat six
Issue of The Washimjto. Cut Times, a paper
with 4,001) stockholders, published, as alleged. In
the Interest of labor.
The Issues received aro not up to the promise,
the character of its editorials and news do not
suggest the ostensible purposo of Its birth.
Thero are squibs and sinkers of the same old
pattern, the tariff, tho Breckinridge case, and
what not, but not a line as to tho labor move
ment, not a paragraph as to the reduction In
wares or the protest of labor.
This will not do for a paper In labor's Interest.
Give them, gentlemen, the scandals, the winning
horse, tho baseball news. But tell us what labor
Is doing, tell us what our Congressmen are
about, mentlun by name such honorablcs as are
supporting women outside of matrimony, have
harp-nosed reporters around to inform us the
mount of time consumed playing poker giving
the honorables' names, remembi r; tell us about
how many times a week the President and Sec
retary Carlisle, for Instance, get a jag on If they
do at all and such other Information of like
character as may come under your notice. Peo

Jim Smith, when he treads the primrose paths
of dalliance or paints the town red, nor of wind

The Times has reproduced this articlo as a
matter of necessity and in order to point a
moral. The Times has never Intended to bo
sensational, and It never will bo. It was not
founded for tho purpose of causing trouble,
and it shall not be conducted for that purpose.
It was founded in tho enthusiasm of tho work-a-day
people of Washington. It will continue
to advocate their cause. It will not do this,
however, in a way to repel support It will
Invite, rather, tho respect and the support of
IhlnLfng people, everywhere. It will win their
admiration, if possible. It will lead them, too,
with what strength it has, out of the onerous
and wrong conditions in which the fabric of
tnrMntv wnuM an tr,nih ltb-A tn jtnmoet, Iham
Xit Times would inspirit and counsel and
unify, rather than excite and distract and In
jure. It is Intended to build up, not to tear
down. If crises should como H' will speak
out plainly. It will spoak out plainly any
way. It believes that all of tho best human
interests aro identical. It Is working away
every day, a3 all its ten thousand zealous
supporters aro working away every day, to
fill its place as they are filling theirs, with
earnestness, charity and patriotism.

by the great banking Interests of tho world,
then shall wo strengthen or weaken that
base? Shall we broaden or contract the me

tion? Shall we eliminate and demonetize
one-half of tho metallic and specie basis of
paper money and then expect tho people of
our country to have the samo confidence in
tho integrity of our national finances as they
could if tho old standard foundations were
We know that tho appreciation of the dollar,
our national monetary unit, means tho depre
ciation of every species of our products and
property, excepting that little item of gold.
Wo do not bae to guess at this, for money
measures the price of all things else, and to
appreciate the standard of measure must nec
essarily depreciate all that is measured.
If j ou lengthen tho yardstick jou shorten
tho number of jards In any piece of cloth
measured by it.
Tho true and just relation between creditor
and debtor Is maintained by keeping a uni
form lolume, and, therefore, n uniform valuo
of currency in circulation.
Whoever seeks to interfere with this is
either ignorant or Intentionally beeking to
interfere with tho equities of tho contracts of
tho world, and, therefore, substituting in
justice for justice.
How can Congress, then, favor striking
down half the money metal of the world,
which necessitates, to be consistent, cuttlnc
down also one-halt the superstructure of pa
per money resting thereon. And to shorten
tho money supply of the world ono-half is to
force an injury upon the industrial Interests
that is greater than any other calamity that
can befall civilization.
To accomplish this by slow gradations may
induco mankind to submit to it with less
danger of successful resistance, but tho ag
gregate of Injustice is the same in the end.
In ancient days great armies have been col
lected and wars carried on to obtain posses
sion and control of mines of tho prociou3
metals. And behold hero In our country a
crusado organized for the exact opposite, a
crusade to destroy the value of our own mines.
This crusade would not be so dangerous to
the Americon peoplo if it did not interfere
with the supply of good legal-tender money,
and, therefore, depress prices, discourage in
dustries, and destroy the hopes of prosperity
among the people.
There is an awakening of the peoplo
throughout the civilized world to the neces
sities of a broader basis and fuller volume of
legal-tender money with which mankind can
carry forward the work and obligations of
this enlightened ago and feed and clothe itself
with both the material and spirtual comforts
requisite to its highest existence. Let us not
plant ourselves in tho way of the world's pro
gress. Let us, on tho other hand, show our
selves, too, in the great march of civilization
worthy of both confidence and honor for tho
bold stand wo take for absolute equity be
tween the world's workers and tho world's
money dealers. II. A Coffee:.

CLOAK R00MAKD GALLERY.
Eepresentatlvo Bailey, of Texas, was tho
first member to como out squarely against
payment of members when absent, and is on
record himself as refusing to take pay in such
caso where ho himself was concerned.
It happened back In tho Fifty-second Con
gress. Mr. Bailey went off to Virginia to make
a speech, and on his return told the Sergeant-at-Arms
that in compliance with a statute
passed back in 18CG lie ought to havo ono
day's pay deducted. This tho Sergeant-at-Arms
refused to do, nnd suggested that if Mr.
Bailey wanted to he could tako the money
and cover it back into tho Treasury.
But the Texan statesman was not thus to bo
crossed, and after somo remonstrance insisted
that the law be compllod with. It was done,
but the newspapers were told about it tho
next day, much to the disgust of Mr Bailey.
This puts tho Texan representative in n v ery
enviable condition now that tho very samo
question is raised, nud his friends are con
gratulating him on the stand he mudo then.
Tho law deducting pay from members salaries
for absence was passed by a good majority In
the Senate, where it was pushed bySonator
Butler, tho father of tho present South Caro
lina Senator. In the House it had a harder
pull, and only got through by a majority of
Members of Congress havo not alwajs been
paid a3 generously as they are to-day. In
tho early days of tho country, tho pay wa3
por diem during nctual session and up to 1816
was not more than S8 a day. In 1810 It was
voted for the first time as an annual salary,
and was then placed nt 51,500, but tho opposi
tion to it was as great as that raised by the
"back-salary grab," and tho feeling against it
compelled tho repeal of the law tho following
It was In 1850 that tho annual system was
again put into effect and the amount fixed on
SJ.O0O. The present nllowanco of 5,000 was
amended in 1S(G, requiring deductions for
absence, owing to the fact that during tho
war nnd immediately thereafter many mem
bers who were lawyers, spent a largo part of
thoir time ut their houses devoting tbem
6eles to their law practice. Tho rula ha3
been seldom enforced.
Soveral members of Congress of a bucolic
turn of mind enjoyed tho sight "of a rural
scene on tho Capitol grounds yesterday,
where tho lawns were being mowed and
yielded a good crop of grass. Thero is little
evidence that the season has advanced as one
glances casually about, but a first rate loadof
fresh grass was the result of tho agricultural
proceedings on tho north lawn j csterday.

Dr. English, member of Congress from New
Jersey, Is bitterly opposed to tho bill now be
fore tho legislature of his state providing for
instruction in the public schools on tho in
fluence of alcohol on the human system.
Although a great many states havo adopted
such legislation, Dr. English declares that It
is used as a means of forming n falso propa
ganda in the shape of books published by tho
American Teinperanco Union, which tell only
a part ol tho truth. By mixing truth nnd
falsehood, Dr. English says, they do more
harm than good, nnd tho truth, ha claims,
can be taught In a few hours If not In a few
minutes by parents. This is a sensible dis
posal of the question.

Representative Bailoy, of Texas, tells a
good story about Henry Clay, which comes to
him from tbo late ex-Senator Dever, of Ken
tucky, his wife's father.
Henry Clay, it will bo remembered, was sent
to tho Senate to complete an unfinished term
before he was elected to tho House. When
the time for the election camo Clay went back
to Kentucky, and fearing that in tbo then
state of politics ho might not get his elec
tion, being opposed by tho able John Pope,
who was a one-armed member, toot special
pains to speak to evcryono whom he thought
could nld his cause, asking him to exert all
the personal influence possible.
Among others ho spoko to his barber, and
suggested that as ho was an old supporter
and had voted for him before ho try to get
others to do tho same. This worthy with i
smile said: "cs, Mr. Clay; I have voted for
you before ana am a good fnend of yours,
but this timo I'm going to voto for Mr. Pope,
because ho can only get ono hand Into the
Treasury and vou can get two."
AS THE CROWDS COME OUT.
A society play in which every one Is excess
ively clever and In which no ono except the
three principal characters have anv thing else
to do is "A Woman of No Importance." As
Mr. Wlldo might say, maybo that's the way it
is in life, so that his drama is not to be criti
cised for it. No drama of one'sown has more
than ono woman and one man in it, with pos
sibly a'child. Tho rest of tho world aro back
ground. As I said Sunday, "A Woman of No
Importance" tells tho story of a woman and a
man who have sinned together in the past,
and who meet, with their son, niter twenty
Miss Coghlan takes tho part of tho woman.
Sho has a position In society, because society
dops not know her story. We are told in tho
dialogue by an American girl that when a
woman and a man havo sinned together they
should suffer equally, but aro made to infer
that this is only tho dream of a very joung
and very innocent American girl, a dream
that perhaps ought to be true, but. bless ber
soul, ncv er can. I do not see the other morals
it there are any. Tho vv Oman in this caso has
suffered all her life since ber sin nnd tho man
has suffered nothing. Although she has only
sinned once nnd he always. IIo is even to rob
her of the child that she has had for twenty
years, and sho can only defeat him by telling
tho young fellow of her guilt and his own
sbame. Mr. Wilde makes these equalities
Tho part of Miss Coghlan is really tho only
one which requires any acting to speak of,
nnvthing more than the "ability to say clever
things with tho right inflection, nnd after the
mannerof people In the proper set. Sho has an
intensely dramatic, intensely emotional part,
and is stronger in It than In anything I ever
saw her in. Her son would itnke his father
and she comes between them. "He is jour
father," sho says. Ono sees all that this con
fession means" to her and watches her face
filled with conflicting emotions and her head
bowed before her son's eyes. It is wonderful
Mr. Wilde makes his American girl say,
when somo ono sympathizes with America's

STORIES OP SENATOR VANCE.
Mr. Vanco was electei to Congress as a
Whig in 1858 from a district which had slnco
1852 gone Democratic. Ho was' about 28.
His district was full of mountain counties
bordering on East Tcnnessco, and at that day
religious controversies had been carried to
excess. There was almost as much antago
nism between Methodists. Presbyterians, and
Baptists as between Whigs and Democrats.
As an olectloneercr and "mixer" Mr. Vanco
possibly never had an equal In North Caro
lina. Wherever ho went riding horseback
over a large mountain district, larger in ex
tent than Rhode Island or Delaware, he never
failed to dismount from his horse and make
himself known to the people on the roadside
and cordially shake bands with them.
On ono occasion in a part of tho district re
mote from his home, after introducing himself
to tho dozen men working by tho road, he
told them that ho was Zeb Vance, candidate
for Congress, and ho solicited their votes.
Ono of the party asked him what church ho
belonged to. Uo didn't want to answer that
question until ho knew what church tho crowd
belonged to, so he replie'd that his grandfather
and grandmother were Presbyterians. Watch
ing the faces of the party he saw that wouldn't
do; be saw a scowl on the faces o! tho men.
Ho then said that his father was a Methodist;
again no response. "But my good old mother,
God bless her, was a Baptist."
Ho saw a responsive smile.
"Yes. God bles3 her, she was a BaDtlst, and
taught mo in my childhood that tho surest
road to heaven was to be baptized, to go clear
under tho water."
It is hardly necessary to add that Zeb Vanco
got the votes cf that crowd.
InlSCOMr. Vance was a very earnest op
ponent of secession. He went to Knoxville,
Tenn., to a great Union meeting, and spoke
earnestly nnd eloquently for Bell and Everett,
the candidates of tho Union men of tho South
He spoko in North Carolina against secession,
predicting ns ho did at Knoxville that the
southern states could lead only to disaster.
As is well known, alter tho secession of his
own stato ho went into tho Confederacy.
m m m
Mr. Vanco was elected to the United States
Senate in 1870, but ho was not eligible to
tako his scat in tho Senate, becauso his disa
bilities had not been removed by Congress.as
required by tho fourteenth amendment. A
special oil! for that purposo was introduced,
which after several days' discussion wa3
voted down. Tho ReDUblicans refused to
pass the bill. Tho late benator Morton made
a strong siieech against Mr. Vance, reciting
in detail hi3 nctive participation in rebellion,
and ho read Irom an old Raleigh paper of
somo tlmo In 1SG1 tho report of an address
delivered by Governor Vance to one or more
of the new regiments of North Carolina
troop3 who serenaded him just as they were
leaving for tho front. IIo advised tho North
Carolinians to fight the Yankees until hell
froze over, nnd tnen light on tho ice. Sen
ator Morton dwelt particularly upon tho out
rageousntss ol such language.
At that moment Mr. Vanco left a sofa on
tho floor, which as Senator-elect ho was en
titled to. and went directly to tho seat of
Senator Brownlovv, of Tennessee. With a merry
twinkle in his ejo ho said to Tar
son Brownlovv: "I mado tho speech
which Morton has jut rea I, and I used tho
language which ha has quoted, but. Governor
Erownlow, It wa a plagiarism; I stole that
speech of v ours. Wo received by a flag of
truce regularly northern newspapers, and I
read the speech which jou had delivered in
Cincinnati, copied into some New York paper,
as far back as April, 'C2, delivered to some
Yankee regiments on their way to the front.
In which you advised them to go forward and
fight us rebels until hell froze over nnd then
fight us on the Ic. But I don t think. Gov
ernor, that I ought to be excluded from my
seat here on account ol that speech as long
as jou sit here."

organization to float its flag over Independence

day, when it holds its celebration in tho his
toric pile to commemorate tho signing of the

1890. In reply to tho union's request Mayor
Ibavenlays refused to allow any flag other
than the Amerkan flag to be raised over Inde

request. No flag excepting our national ensign
has ever been permitted to fly over that build

Adversely to kjlc's Bill.
Tho Senate Committee on Public Lands de
cided yesterday to report adversely the amend
ment to the sundry civil bill proposed by Sen
ator Kj le, prov iding that the act repealing tho
timber-culture law shall not affect a contest
pendiug in the Land Office prior to tho passage
of that act. The amendment has receiv ed con
siderable attention from tho committees of
both tbo Senato and House.
It was first referred in the Senato to tho
Committco on Judiciary, and then, after re
ceiving tho attention of that committco at two
meetings, reported to tho Senato with tho rec
ommendation that it bo referred to the Com
mittee on Public Lands. It is understood that
if tho amendment had been a separate bill it
would have been favorably repcrted by the
latter committee, but a majority of tho mem
bers was unfavorable to making such legisla
tion part of an appropriation bill.

No journal can do its duty, says tho Courier
Journal, and remain silent regarding the re
markable speech of CoL Phil Thompson, one
of the attorneys in tho Pollard cose. We know
of no speech made under circumstances of
such publicity 'that Is in so many respects dis
creditable. That CoL Thompson chose to
give it a tone which could have hardly been
lower and to put it in words which could have
scarcely been coarser are matters within the
purview of his own taste. Bat that he chose
to baso it on a conception of morals and phil
osophy as vicious as it is fal3e Is not only a
legitimate but an imperative subject for public
condemnation. Sllenco from manly men is
out of the question when n speaker arises in a
courtroom into which run the wire3 of every
telegraph lino in the land, and professing him
self to bo a representative of men.declares that
all men are libertines; that civilization is
naught but a He; that purity is a myth; that
virtue is a mockery; that manhood is simply
That there are far too many men who are
recreant to duty and decency no ono will
deny; that thero are many whose lives, fair on
the exterior, aro in reality as foul as any
whoso corruption has been exposed every ono
knows; but when the deliberate assertion is
mado that all men nre roues, whose crime
only consists In discovery, an Indignant and
horrified protest will go up from tho homes
of America, where conjugal love and loyalty
hav e thousands nnd thousands of sacred al
tars, and from as many thousands of men
whose Hv es are manly nnd wholesome, bo
cause deep In their hearts is that ennobling
rovorence fortruo womanhood which Is tho
inspiration and sustenance of true manhood,

When my typew riter's chum came in at 6

writer in the New York Press, I noticed that
tbo girl had something special on her mind.
Presently sho drew her friend aside and told
her in a stage whisper how tho men in her
office sho is employed, it appears, in a mer
cantile agency where there are about fifty
men and only two women acted when the
Pollard-Breckinridge verdict was reported at
5 o'clock Saturday evening. Her cheeks got
quite red and ber eyes snapped as she ex
citedly told her friend that when the news
paper extra camo in and the $15,000 verdict
was announced one of the men threw up his
arms and cried, "Great!" The next one
wanted to know what was great, and in a
minute "every man in tbo office was shaking
hnnds with himself like pay day," my type
writer snid. "Oh, Mamie, jou oucht to have
seen them. They looked really pleased,"
and, sho added " reflectively, " Maybo men

Now, what I want to know is, what kind of

all the rest of the faithful little band go

Changes Which Will Bo Brought About
by Senator Vance's Death.
There is already more or less quiet talk
about the Senato as to Mr. Vance's probable
successor on the Finance Committee. Con
versations with a number of Domocratlo Ben
tors yesterday devolops the fact that a ma
jority of them are of opinion that the choice
will fall upon Senator Mills, of Texas. Ho is
considered especially eligible because of the
attention he has given for years to financial
questions, and the fact that he was chosen for
this post temporarily in tho absence of Sena
tor McPherson during the preparation of tbo
tariff bill now before the Senate would seem
to put him in line for the permanent member
ship at this time.
It is possible that Senator Mills' claims may
be contested by tho northern nnd eastern
Democratic Senators, who, as Is known, havo
not been entirely satisfied to havo so large a
preponderance of southern and western men
on the committee, as Is now the case. If they
should make a successful effort to secure the
appointment, the choice would probably fall
upon either Senator Hill or Vilas, bena
ator Brice's name has been mentioned in
this connection, bat owing to the fact that
Ohio already had In Senator Sherman a mem
ber of tho committee it is considered improb
able that ho would be selected. Thero is also
a possibility that tho far West may ask for
membership on the committee, and Senator
hite, of California, has been mentioned as a
Friends of Senator Mills call attention to
the fact that Mr. Vance was a southern man,
and contend that it is proper that he should
bo succeeded by a Senator from the same sec
tion. It is possible that Mr. Mills may not
desire the appointment. He is known to re
gard tho committee as ono imposing onerous
duties, and he declined the place when the
committees were reconstructed a Tear ago.
There is little doubt that Senator Gray,who
stood next to Senator Vance on the Commit
tee on Privileges nnd Elections.wlll surrender
his chairmanship of the Committee on Patents
to accept that of Privileges and Elections.
HOUSE DOINGS YESTERDAY.
Resolutions on the Death of Senator
Vance and of General Slocura.

Resolved, That this preamble and resolution
be spread upon the Journal of the House and a
copy be sent to his sorrowing family.
When the Senato resolutions on tho death
of Senator Vance were transmitted they were
read at the clerk's desk. Mr. Henderson, of
North Carolina, then presented in a few ap
propriate words the resolutions of respect
and sympathy drawn by the North Carolina
delegation. These resolutions accepted the
invitation to join with the Senate in the
funeral services at 1 o'clock to-day. They
were unanimously adopted.

o'clock for tbe consideration of the Chinese
treaty. Tho managers of the tariff bill have
only agreed to give ono day for tho treaty,
and its friends will mako a strong effort to
have it disposed of before adjournment. In
this they will be antagonized by many of the
western Senators and by somo Republicans
from other sections of the country. The op
ponents of the treaty will attempt first to de
feat it outright, and failing in tbat will try to
have it amended. Senator Morgan said to-day
that ho thought tho treaty would be ratified
as it now stands. The first question to be dis
posed of in connection with tho treaty will be
