THE MONEOE DOCntlNE.
It is of no use to hang out the Monroe
doctrine and shout boo-boo at England
for attempting to collect her claim against
Nicaragua unless an actual seizure of
territory should take place. That little
republic Is presuming on its inferiority
and the Jingoism of Secretary Gresham
in order to repudiate her debt, and the
United States cannot afford to interfere
without just provocation from England.
There must be a tacit understanding
between nations, as well as men, that the
only way to collect claims against irrc
eponsible debtors is to threaten berlous
consequences. Nicaragua is financially
and officially irresponsible. In a pe
riodical insurrection within Nicaraguan
domain an English consul was killed and
English residents weie mistreated, and
it is in punishment of these misdeeds
that England demands indemnity, repa
ration, and a settlement by arbitration
of certain boundary disputes.
In the settlement England will bring
about the United States will protect
American interests, but there will be no
threats made nor action taken concern
ing the Monroe doctrine until that instru
ment has been infringed. Jingo editors
and enthusiasts might as well understand
this fact right now.
THE POLITICAL COMPLICATION.
The attitude of the two great political
parties on the silver question is inter
esting. The Democratic party is dividing into
factions and preparing to begin a struggle
either for oragainstsilversuprexnacy.
The Republicans have not yet commenced
a factional warfare, but the silver and antl
eilvor elomeuts of the party arc getting
ready to contest and before many weeks
will be actively engaged in measuring
Considering the effect of the two finan
cial policies on foreign trade It would seem
that the Democrats would incline toward
international bimetalliEm and the Repub
licans to national free silver, but the con
trary will probably be the result.
The Democratic party could not suc
cessfully carried out Its avowed purpose
of reducing tariff dutaeB and extending
foreign trade without using an universal
money. Gold is the accepted standard
of all important commercial nations, and
to retain the confidence and be on equal
footing with these countries the United
States must fix her values and prices by
the same money standard unless she depends
principally upon a home marker.
Reasoning from the same standpoint,
the Republicans could better adopt a silver
standard, because that party is pledged
to high tariff duties and the protection
at home trade. In this great and pros
perous country any legal tender money is
acceptable as a medium to facilitate the
exctiange of commodities. Therefore the
home market principle is better adapted to
circulate a depreciated money than an
unrestricted commercial intercourse with
The best policy for both parties to adopt
would be no bimetallism except by inter
national agreement. This country can
never have undisturbed prosperity unless
we stop tinkering with finance and do busi
ness on the principles employed by other
TOO HIGH AK AESESSMENT.
Groat disappointment is felt by tax
payers at the report of Assessor Trimble.
It 6bows a surplus of a half million dol
lars, and falls far short of the decrease
promised at the time the board of revision
handed in the results of its labors. The
surplus was created by an over-valuation,
and it confirms the many complaints of
the bad system employed in making the as
sessment. If the surplus could be used to lower tho
watt r rates, or for some public good, there
would be less cause for complaint, but
like other excess of revenues it "must be
sunk in the Lydecker tunnel. If denunci
ations could lie used to pay that debt at the
rate of a penny a cuES-word, the cost of
tills hole in the ground would long since
bave been liquidated and forgotten. As
it now stands the obligation is a bugaboo
and an outrage.
PROTECT THE DANGER POINTS.
The proposition of the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad to fence danger points within
the District and to protect road crossings
with gates is reasonable, provided an
agreement with the Commissioners can
be reached as to where the danger points
There should be no more delay in set
tling this dispute, and if the company
cannot "be compelled to fence its tracks
according to the Commissioners order
the next best thing, the protection of
dangerous places, should be arranged.
The public is no doubt pleased at the
vigorous way the Commissioners deal
with this controversy. And probably
the railroad is equally surprised. Here
tofore railroad corporations have looked
to Congress for instruction in matters
connected with, their affairs, and an order
curtailing their assumed liberties is like
clipping the wings of a vulture.
Gen. Mahone is the most picturesque of
TVasuington's famous visitors. His petite

clearly thji. reconstruction with him is a
njAtreFof form, and that a large sized rebel
yell might yet be found in his vigorous little
But the most unique thing about Gen.
Mahone Is bis. trousers. Not the ordinary
tailor-made product, but a Mabouistic
Invention that clothes his limbs grotesquely.
Tears ago our grandmothers wore skirts
gathered at the waist in numberless pleats
to accommodate the cloth used to envelope
extraordinary hoop skirts. Gen. Mahone
has the waistband of his trousers gathered
in the same accordion-pleated style, no to
make room for hoops nor to allow for a
longer stride, but to please tho little man
wlio wears them.
The very originality ofhis trousers stamps
the character of the man. Ab a soldier Gen.
Mahone was a brave, impetuous fighter,
In politics he would brook no opposition
andcithcrled hisparty ororganized a revolt
againBt its success. As a citizen his indom
itable perserverauce makes him a factor in
all circles, and wherever he takes a hand his
influence Is felt.
There may b- frills on the shirt and pleats
in the trousers of Gen. Mahone, but there
is no discounting the fact that he is still
an able man.

NO APPEAL PERMITTED.
Prohato Conrl'n llt'ciwton Flnnl In tho
Mnttor of llomlr. for Kxeoutors.
Chief Justice Alvey, of the court of
appeals, in a decision yesterday in the case
of Mrs. Annie Cropper against Mrs. Abble
McLanc and James McLaue, executors
under the will of her father, the late Allan
McLanc. says there is no appeal to that
court from the probate court on the ques
tion of bond for executors.
Mrs. Cropper asked that accumulated
and accumulating income of her father's
estate be distributed pending the decision
of the contest over his will, and that the
executors be compelled to give additional
bond. Judge Hngner denied both re
quests. Upon Mrs. Cropper's appeal
the court grants the request for distri
bution. This Is In accord with a decision handed
do.vu in February, after Judge Hagner'e
decision upon the petition considered in
to-day's opinion. It is directed that
only assets accumulated since October
23, 1804. should be distributed under
to-day's decision, and that this shall in
no way conflict with the previious ruling.
The petition for requirement of addi
tional bond is refused, but it is suggested
thatMrs. Cropper can again go before Judge
Hagner, and, upon a showing that the
estate is being wasted or other good
cause, ask that the bond be increased.
He says the court exercising original
probate jurisdiction has the power to
require additional bond or remove an
an executor upon a disclosure made to
it, of such a condition of affairs as will
justify such action. It must rest largely
in the touud discretion of the court.
"Tills court," lie writes, "in the exer
cise of appellate power could not, under the
statute, prescribe bond or penalty or re
move an executor in default of giving
the bond required of him. That power
must be exercised by the court below, and
no appeal will lie to this court."
SENOR ROMERO'S DENIAL.
Nejrro r,ut)orers Arc "ot to Ho "Imported
Into Mexico ly tho Government.
Senor Romero's attention having been
called to a statement recently published to
the effect that Mr. "W. H. Ellis made a con
tract with the Mexican Government for
the importation into Mexico of negro la
borers, he said that such statement was
He lias received official information to
the effect that the Mexican Government
has made no contract with Mr. Ellis or
any other American citizen for the intro
duction into Mexico of any laborers.
It seems that a private Mexican company
called the Tlaimalilo Agricultural and
Colonizing Company, which owns some
cotton lands In the State of Durango,
made a contract with Mr. Ellis for the
purpose of introducing not over 100 negro
families, who will have one-half of the
cotton crop they raise.
They will be assisted with money, house
and victuals enough to live there for some
time after their arrival, and the negroes
who have left for Mexico have done so
under such private contracts, and not as
colonists, but as laborers, to remain in
Mexico only a year, and if at the expira
tion of that time the result is not sat
isfactory to cither party the laborers will
bo returned to tho United States at the

Brilliant Reception Given by Prof.
SMITHSONIAN THE SCENE OP IT
Brilliant Marriage of Miss Francos Cox to
Mr. . E. "Whiting Miss Marian Fendall
Becomes tho "Wife of Mr. Jacob "Wondell,
Jr. Great Concourses of Fashionablo
Peoplo Attended Both Weddings.
Prof. Langley was tho host at one of
tho largest receptions of the season, given
last night at tho Smithsonian. Tho entiro
cast wing of the building was thrown open
for the entertainment and decorated in
the most elaborate manner.
Every detail of the ocenbion was on a
very elegant scale, befitting the distin
guished members of tho National Academy
of Sciences, who were the especial guests
of honor. For some years past it has been
the .annual custom of Prof. Langley to
give a reception while the meeting of the
scientists was In progress in "Washington.
Tho Teeeption of last night was in many
respects the most elaborate that lias yet
Tho guests entered the cast doorway,
and passing through a flower-lined hall
way passed up the stairwuy, which was
hung with Persian rugs and bright colored
fabrics that lent an especially rich ap
pearance to the general effect of the
decorations. In the corners and niches of
the hallway and stairs were grouped palms
and bushes covered with bloom. The upper
corridor was decorated in the same manner,
while at the far end was stationed the
Fourth Artillery Band with the backing
of the flag of the Union. In front of the
musicians was a thicket of palms.
Tho room immediately at the head of
tho stairway, in which Prof. Langley stood
with his receiving paTty, wnb decorated
with huge brandies of magnolia in full
bloom, the nromutic scent of the flowers
filling the entire suite of rooms in which
the reception was held. In addition to
those magnolias thero were stands of
lilies and hyacinths. In the rooms opening
out the spring flowers were used in pro
fusion. One of these rooms was fitted up as a
Japanese sanctum. The adjoining apart
ment, in which punch was served, had the
walls decorated with the weapons of war
of tho varioub North American Indians,
so that it presented a most picturesque ap
pearance. In the Oriental room the elec
tric lights were arranged in the form of a
star and crescent.
One room was hung with pictures of
Pembroke, Oxford, in which Smithson
studied and passed much of his time.
Another room represented in its decora
tions the fourteenth century. In this
apartment were some large and most valu
able tapestries. The smoking room on the
top floor was appropriately decorated
with smoking outfits of various nations
The great feature of the decorations of
the supper room, which was prepared as a
surprise for Prof. Langley, was a fac
simile in candy of the old homestead in
which he was born. The windows wvre
draped with pretty muslin curtains, and
the interior lighted by tiny Incandescent

St. Paul's Church was crowded to its ut
most capacity at 1 o'clock yesterday, when
the marriage of MissFrancos Cox, daughter
of Mrs. Thomas Cox, to Mr. Ebcn Eveleth
"Whiting was celebrated. Not only was
the body of the church filled, but even tho
aisles were crowded so that itwas with con
siderable difficulty that tho wedding- party
effected an entrance.
At the chancel rail before which the bride
and groom stood during the bridal
service, there was an nTchway formed of
tall palms. In the window ledges and at
the rear of the chancel there were tall
Easter lilies. Rev. Air. Harding performed
the marriage ceremony.
The ushers, who woro boutonnieres of
Parma violets, were Mr. James Calwell,
Mr. James Eruory, Dr. Ruffin, ard Mr.
Lewis Finney. Mr. Harry Whiting, jr.,
attended his brother as best man, and stood
awaiting the coming of the bride at tho

PrgoeedlugTLe wedding march was played
the "Flower Song" from "Faust." As soon
as this changed to the familiar strain? of
"Lohengrin," the bride, who entered lean
ing on the arm of her brother, Mr. Robinson
Cox, of New York, was preceded down the
aisle by the four ushers. Immediately in
advance of the bride walked her youngest
sister, Miss Elizabeth "Underwood Cox, as
