"Will Do for "Washington.
Mr. B. H. Warner, president of the board
of trade, returned to the city yesterday,
quite enthusiastic over the Clifton Park
celebration In Baltimore, which lie at
tended in his official capacity. In speak
ing of it yesterday, Mr. Warner said:
"This enterprise, the centeunial of '97,
and the groat benefits it -will confer upon
Washington, are not well understood by our
citizens, and I am glad The Times is going
to give some attention to the subject.
Yesterday we had an audience or between
50,000 and 70,000 people. There are
12,000,000 people within a radiUB or 200
miles of Baltimore from which population
it will be possible to make the exposition
one than that of the Columbian Exposition,
"The large proportion of those who go to
Baltimore in May, '97, will visit this
city at a time when it is most attractive,
and the advantage to us would be incalcu
lable. I sincerejy hope our merchants,
hotel keepers, and business men generally
will display that brotherly interest In this
matter which iB expected from the close

DELIGHT IN PHOTOGRAPHS
Servant Girls Have a Fassion Tor
Their Own Pictures.
Their Pa'trcnagV ofCneap Sun Portraits 13
.Constant and Expensive Irish
Girls Take Well.
One of the very first
pnvilegcs a newly ar
rived servant girl dis
covers in America and
promptly stamps with
the approval of her
steady patronage Is
our sun portraiture.
She usually weakens
to the charms of the
camera shortly after
receiving her lirst
month's wages, and
at the suggestion of
an experienced friend
is introduced to what
in kitchen circles is
considered 'a stylish
after she is apttoJielp
that artist along in
his business by giving
him a sitting once in
every six months orat
shorter periods. A
'large numlwr or cheap
photographers find it
worth while to cater exclusively to house
maid patronage. But while the high
priced artist rules his customer with .a rod
of iron, no such pleasing conditions pre
vail with the cheap picture man.
The servant girl Is exacting, imperious,
critical, sulky, and grasping, ir she decides
to test her looks in the unerring eye of the
lease she makes up her mind at once and
demands a sitting without delay. By car
rying her patronage, regardless of caliber
ot work, to whoever will give her cabinet
portraits for the least money, prices in the
profession have been brutally sacrificed,
and from $1.00 to 1.25, with a few as high
as $2.00. is asked for one dozen cabinet
cards. The broader the gilt edges ot the
cards are and the more splendidly scalloped
their boarders the greaterthe satisfactlondo
they give. Before she will receive mounted
photographs a half dozen proofs must bo
submited for her inspection. The larger
the numbar of proof s and the more promptly
THE SWEBISn BEAUTY.
tier pictures are finished the higher her
estimation ot their maker. With the aid of
a "lady friend" she arranges her own poses
and is conventional to a degree.
Just at the moment standing positions
are nigaly admired, three-quarter lengt
.preferred, the feet always carefully tuck
out of sight in any event, and millinery
splendors well to the fore. Sunday after
noon the cheap street photographer throws
prejudice to the winds and tries as best he
can to live up to his advertised reputation
as a ''lightning artist." For Sunday
afternoon all servant gtrldom is abroad,
arrayed like tropical flowers and eager to
get the effect on paper of an Easter bonnet
or spring gown. Not one ot them ever asks
to be taken in a decollete toilet and some of
them contrive to appear very smartly in
deed, following in quiet taste and simple
forms the street fashions of their mis
tresses. Out of the boxes fall of cooks' and chani
liermaids. laundresses' and nurse girls' por
traits only the occasional one is now gro
tesque, and some are distinctly pretty.
The lively Irifh girls take Uie best pic
turesTatTfl the highest compliment a belle of
the kitchen can receive is to be asked by a
particularly favored young man the priv
ilege of paying for "a dozen of a setting,"
as is the common phrase. One handsome
Swede had her picture taken as many as
four times a month at the expense of her
various admirers, and the custom of treat
ing to photographB Invariably follows an
announced engagement in these humble
walks of life.
Photography, with the sen-ant girl, is
synonymous of the light-hearted independ
ence of youth and maidenhood. So long as
she is unmarried a good bit of her wages
are regularly invested in pictures. She
often announces her engagement by being
photographed with the man ot her choice,
and this is usually the swan song ot her
girlish vanity. The cares and expenses of
married life leave her none ot those little
margins forindulging this particular fancy,
even at the longest intervals. She rarely
goes back to the little studio to ba taken
with her bable3, as is the pretty fashion of
mothers in better circumstances, and per-baps-bers
Is the discreetest philosophy after
all, for her good looks fade early, and the
Seventh street photographer has not yet
learned the art of his Pennsylvania avenue
brother artist, who can cheat time, on the
Bensitized plate, ot all the cares and
wrinkles with which he sets his seal.
Minister Hurunga Taking Ills Leave.
Scnor Muruaga, the Spanish Minister,
terminated his official active connection
with this government yesterday. He called

would be in chargo of tho office pending
the arrival ot tho now minister, Dupuy de

Lawyer Hamilton's Insinuation in Argu

Judge Bradley yesterday granted to
Eleanor Goodfellow and others a manda
mus against tho District Commissioners,
directing tliemr to file a plat of a sub-division,
situated on the Brentwood road, east
of the northornpartof Eckmgton.
The ground is a part of tho estate ot the
late R. Y. Brent. Tho commissioners ob
jected to tho plat because the owners of the
property refused to dedicate land for tho
extension of Delaware avenue.
In the argument of the caso Commission
ers' Attorney Thomas said a deflection
in the line of Delaware avenue hadbeenmade
in the extension in order not to interfere with
the B. & O. railroad. Mr. George E. Hamil
ton, of counsel for the complainants, is also
attorney for the B. & O.
In answering, Mr. Thomas, he said tho
Commissioners favor for tho B. & O. was
well known, but asked if it was not quito
as likely that the deflection in the avenue

Our lot is not always quito happy,
It's Just full of rough ups and downs;
Instead of a smile or a nickel,
We often get curses and frowns.
Tho ueeds of our dearones compel us
To work when we should bo in school,
Small chance foT us fellows to study,
And who wants to grow up a foolf
We go when wo are hungry and frozen,
We are "rushed" when tired and sick,
We bust the old rules by the dozen,
And orten wo got "fired" quickl
You want us to go like the lightning,
And drivers don't turn out for us;

And don't make a very .loud fuss .

Our pay Ptops, and some one will miss It.
But thendts grand not to be dead.

And then, we are fined f irseatid last;

Our suits wear out awfully fast.

We'll find all the good there is'in it,

And now we must bring you this message,
For those who will know what it means;
Don't send us in barrooms and places
Where wickedness shows-tempting scenes,

very gruffly. He slapped a lot of vaseline
on my feet over the dirt. I asked him to
got me a pan to wash my feet, but he
"I slashed my boots the way you see
them and pulled them on and left the hos
pital, after having received a card in ex
change for the one I got at the mission
house. The doctor told me to come back
next Thursday. I threw away the card, as
I didn't intend to come back.
"Now, look at me, gentlemen," said he,
appealiugly. "Look at the condition I
am In. That's the only tiling I'm ashamed
of. I could have got tools, money, cloth
ing and a gun, but I preferred the disguise
of a tramp, and the hardships connected
with it. Jl could have gone to my friends,
but, you see, there was no money found
on me when arrested. When I left the
hospital It was about 11:30 on Sunday
Perry would not tell anything of his
movements in New York, except that he
l tramped around; but Instead ot answering
tho questions put to him in this respect,
he began to tell why he had made th es
cape, complaining that he had been abused
at the asylum. Men, he said, were some
times held down and Jumped on, and their
ribs broken there.
HIS FATAL MOVE.
Coming back to his story of New York,
he said he left the city over the ferry next
to Courtland street. "That's the Jer
sey Central," said he. "This was on
Monday morning. I walked to their
freight yard, as I did not want to at
"Alady in Jersey City gavemethistie,and
two pair of socks. I told her I was poor
and a laborer. I bated to take them from
her, but I had to. I walked along tho
radroad tracks for houra in the dark last
night, and near to where I was arrested I
changed my clothes for the ones I am now
wearing, but I kept this prison shirt on, as
I thought the peoplo would only think it was
a workhouse one.
"I left the old clothes there, and if any
one looks for them they will be found.
When I came to ttie trestle near the coal
cars, I saw two files burning, and I went
up there. That was a fatal move on my
part, for, if I had not gone near the fire3
they never would have caught me."
He would not tell where or how he got
his change ot clothes, bat he requested the
reporters to como and see him at the asylum
as soon as he would get back there. This
was all he would say before he was removed
to the county prison.
Later in the afternoon, an old black cuta
way coat and a torn pair of pants, a shirt
and handkerchief, were found lymgg close
to the spot where Perry was arrested.
