"Let me L'lva vnn a ilUlntfirentpil view on

Indulge in any personal remarks, but I
w:int to submit a few facts that may have a

the work tiiat was done In that behalf dur
luit the Dint elirht weeks, vou muat have
noticed several very conspicuous fa-tti.

the entire work was left to those who bad
"llis'i Interest! to serve. At the conferen.
ce whom did you see t You saw the hotel
men. ihey had a private Interest. You
:tw the newspaper men. Tbey bad a
privute Interuht. You saw the repre
sentatives of a few commercial
homes. Tbey had a private Interest. You
saw a sprinkling of politicians who most
certainly bad an individual Interest. But
did you we any of our largo propjrty own
ers there, who were not engaged In a
calling which could be directly benefited by
tne inn u or a convention crowd!" Not
one. This c!as of cit aens stood aloof,
and arc now doubtless .Indulging in very
scv ro crliloisins on the men who did all the
work that was dune. Don't understand
me as finding any fault with those who bore
the burden of the work, because of tholr
having personal'encls to serve, for that is
not my purpose. They are entitled to just
as much oredit as though they had suc
ceeded In their undertaking. They proved
themselves possessed of a deal of enter
prise, ami many of them are notably pjb-lie-spirited.
But that no active interest
should be taken by any but them that in a
city which makes metropolitan claims there
should be no more than

of hard-woru'd business men willing to de
vote a few hours of their time and a few
dollars ol their money to a project which
was of Immense Importance to the city as a
whole, is a most humlllattnir commentary
on St. LuuU. The wonder Is not that our
da'.egation to Washlngtoo wai not better,
under the circumstances, but that it was
nearly so good, and that it made such a
creditable fubt as It did. I have to-day
heard some ryj those men who held aloof
from the work of organization, inquiring
why It was tht St. Louis did not have a
stronger committee, and why they wero
not better provided with funds. My answer
has been, wny did you not go to some of
the meetings and do your share
to Improve the committee or strengthen its
fundi"' If these orltlcs took as much In
terest In the progress and welfare of jt.
Louis when enterprises are being pushed
as tbey do after a failure or a success has
been scored, our city would have far less
to blush for. Chicago baa hundreds of
public-spirited men who, when anything
offers that might benefit the city, are ready
to go down Into their pockets and spend
their money to advance the city's credit and
standing. How many moneyed men were
there to offer to go to Washington and sup
port the claims of our city with money or
works. Why som of the members of the
delegation at first Insisted on not only hav
ing their transportation, but their board
bills paid for."
Mil. R. PATRICK TAVSrO,
speaking on the same subject said: "I
have no doubt our delegation in Washing
ton did their best, and unucr the circum
stances they made a creditable fight. But
I nm told how truly I know not that the
Mayor of Chicago spent one hundred dollars
In entertainment in Washington where our
people were able to spend one. Oeu.

from Illinois, have been in Washington
some weeks working In the interest of
"Do you think, Mr. Tanscy, that Mr.
Harrison, of Chicago, and those gentlemen
where spending their own money go

told that Carter Harrison had $10,000 cash

delegation have f"
"Well, you had better Interview Mr. S.
II. Laflin or MaJ. Rainwater, of the Fi
nance Committee, on the subject . I have
some reason to believe the treasurer of the
fund bad not more cash on band than was
needed to provide transportation to and
from Washington, go that any entertain
meut there must have been provided out of
their own pockets. I prefer, however,
that this phase of It he not published. Il
would only belittle our city abroad. Fin
ally, when a fellow goes abroad to benefit
tbe city in a public way, and pays out his
own money In the effort. It Is hardly fair
for those who stay at home to criticize him
for failing, when be was net properly
MAJ. C. C. RAINWATER
was called on. "Major, " said the re
porter, "I called to ask why St. Louis fall
ed to capture tho convention."
"Ob, I wouldn't like to bare that pub
lished. Iascribo our failure partially to
other causes. For instance, while Chicago
was backed by a strong railroad combina
tion, St. Lout received a paltry $200 from
that source, with a vague promise of more
if we succeeded. Another great factor whs
tbe Iroquois Club of Chicago, which reprc
gents from fifty to sixty millions. Its mem
bers held a meeting gome time ago and
resolved that the convention soould
come to Chicago. After that tbe
question of cost was never considered- The
men were on tbe ground In Washington
long ahead of ours, and no expense was
considered In tho matter of entertainment.
Our delegation went to Washington with
barely enough to pay for their transporta

What a Prominent German-Amerioan
Says About It.
fllimarck Hat Ouly Walling; for
bnnre lo Show Ilia iHallke lor
Hio I'nlteU Mintea.
Nkw Youk, Feb. 23. Mr. Oswald Ot
tendorfer said yesterday that tho aatlon of
Prince H suurck regarding tho L tsker re
solution was an insult to the United States
and one that deserved substantial resent
nicnt. "Ever since the pork question was
agitufid," continued Mr. Otteudorfer,
"Bismarck bus been aching to vent big
gpito upon America. The receipt of the
resolution eulogistic of a statesman who did
not agree with him In all matters furnished
him, maybe, a pe:ty excuse, and bo has
made the most of it. This seems the more
extraordinary to me, because Lasker was
not a political opponent of : Bismarck. On
tbo contrary, be was his valued assistant in
many intauces where tbe policy of the
government In certain exigencies was con
cerned. The principal " diffrenco
botwoen them, if there really was one,
was undoubtedly on the tariff question.
While Bismarck was the greatest champion
of protection. Lasker enunciated tho prin
ciples which Cobden advocated. Notwith
standing all this it was a subject of common
remark in Germany, especially during tbe
years sucoeeding tbo war, how muea re
gard and offeetion the Prince seemed to
lavish upon Lasker, lie sat always In tho
seat of honor when Bismarck held State re
ceptions, and every attention characteristic
of a beloved and honored brother was paid
him. The resolution possessed no political
significance whatever, nor was It intended
that it should. They contained not a single
sentence which could be construed as an
am mpt to elevate in public opinion one or
the other of the great political parties In
Germany, Lasker was a German statesman.
LOVED AM) HONOKKD EJ
by his people. Ho visited America aiid
mado lasting friendships whurever be
went, especially among members of the
House of Representatives. This body,
knowing well the regard and esteem in
which he was held at home, abroad and by
members of the National Legislature,
deemed it not only a duty but a pleasure to
extend sympathy to bis people in the be
reavement. The very fact that Lasker died
upon our shores made it an imperative
courtesy that America should condole with
a sister nation over her loss. Tho truth Is
Bismarck has been troubled too much with
the advance In public favor of American
pork In Germany. This, coupled with the
enormous yearly deportation of Gorman
citizens to America, has aroused his ire and
America must bear the brunt."
"What is your opinion of tho demand
mado by the seral-otrlei ,1 newspapers in
Germany that Minister Sargent shall be re
calln'l." "These newspapers are simply voicing
the sentiments of Bismarck. The Prince
claims that Sarpnt informed the United
States Government tnat Blsniarcx desired
the exclusion of American pork from Ger
many, not so much on account of sanitary
as agrarian reasons. This mean', that Bis
marck feared that American exports would
drive the German article in the course of
time entirely out of the market. The
Prince, too, I see, charges Minister S ir
gent with sen lin? communications to this
effect for publication In the American
new-paper-. This Is untrue. I think
.Minister Sargent was ordered by the De
partment of State to express his opinion as
to Bismarck's object in demanding the se
clusion of American pork. Ho tobeyed
this ordor. The Department of State fur
nished bis statement to the press of tae
country. This being tbe case,
HOW COULD HE BE HELD
responsible? The charge that bo is endeav
oring by his diplomatic conduct to influ
ence tho coming elections In this country
seems too absurO to merit a passing
thought. The statemont that the House of
Re presentatives adopted the Lasker resolu
tion to gain German votes In tbo coming
Presidential contest and to win the love of
(t' rmans at home who are desirous of
throwing the gates of tho Fatherland wide
open to American imports, seems equally
ridiculous. What 1 blame Minister Sar
geut for is this: He apparently cares more
for his position than he does for courtesy to
himself and the United States at tho hands
of the oflleials of the German Government.
Were this not so, he must
Lave resigned or resented the insults
heaped upon him by Bismarck and other
ere this. Had Bancroft or Taylor or
White suffered such indignities whilo they
represented America in Germany they
would have demanded redress without de
lay. Ever since the pork agitation began
Sargent has suffered tho rebuffs and con
temptuous sneers of Bismarck and his
friends. Whenever he has expressed a de
sire to make a communication with the
United States government he has either
been totally Ignored or referred to a sub
ordinate official. Socially, as well as
diplomatically, be has been cut without
the slightest show on his part of 'resent
ment. Sargent, If ho will not own that he
owes It to Umself, certainly owes It to the
United States government, that these In
sults should be resented, aud speedily,
too. Ills failure to demand redress seems
to me the only reason why be should be re
called." A Death NtrnKifle.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Feb. 23. A
deadly affray occurred Friday on board
the steamer J. C. Warner, botween Pin
Hook Landing and Piney, between J. W.
Watis, of Roane county, Tenn., and Henry
Wilson, residenco unknown. The two
belligerents, while on deck, engaged In a
quarrel and finally grasped each
other. Then both drew knives
and slashed away at each other until cacti
had received from four to six terrlblo
stabs. They finally clinched and in tlie
scuffle got near the guards. Wilson made
a desperate effort to throw bis antagonist
overboard. Watts bung ou to him with a
deathly grip and they both went Into the
turbid waves closely embraced in a death
struggle. Tbey sank and rose to
the surface, each trying to stay above the
water by holding tbo other down. They
were in a momcut at tbo mercy of- the bil
lows which followed the boat and sank to

odd that literary people prefer a pipe to a
cigar. It la handler to smoke wnen tncy

nationa and all classes of men agree mat
