Some of Them Uave Oone Away to Es
It is charg-od that the foreigners
of the legations are the most dissi
pated people in Washington. Some
of the young men, while favorably
regarded by the American girls, are
looked upon with move or less dis
approval by prudent mammas. Some
of them have behaved outrageously
on occasions, cheating their credit
ors, getting into drunken rows and
otherwise taking advantage of their
immunity from arrest and prosecu
tion for debt and other causes.
According to law they are entirely
exempt from the jurisdiction, either
civil or criminal, of United States
authorities, and if anybody ventured
to sue one of them for money due
that person would be liable to a fine
and three years' imprisonment as a
violator of the laws of nations and
a disturber of the public repose. "
Just after the closo of the civil
war some of the diplomates stationed
in Washington made themselves ex
ceedingly objectionable. They
thought they could do about as they
pleased, and their insolence was car
ried to such a j)oint that it was nec
essary to check it. One of them is
said to have occupied a chair at a
german which belonged to 6ombody
else, arfd when the hostess asked him
to vacate it ho replied:
"I decline to do so, madam. It is
absurd to suppose that one can
claim a scat at a dance as if it were
at the theater. "
In another instance a foreign sec
retary made an offensive, remark to a
young lady, and then put his foot on
her dress to prevent her from getting
up and leaving him. In both these
cases the perpetrators of the acts de
scribed were challenged immediately
to fight several duels, and they flod
from the city.
It was during the last administra
tion that two members of a South
American delegation made a business
of getting a girl drunk at a party by
plying her with champagne In con
sequence of this affair they were re
called by their government. A like
fate eventually befell a miser and
beat from a sister American republic,
who looked up his house to keep off
creditors, paid nobody, cooked his
own food and starved his family so
they were obliged to apply to neigh
bors for sustenance.
F.ut it must be acknowledged that
the foreigners have had numerous
reasons wherefore thoy miiit justly
complain of the people of Washington
as barbarians. At one ball which the
Chinese minister gave four years ago
tho mob swarmed in and attacked
the provender so fiercely, throwing
the empty plates nndcr the table.
that he was obliged to sprinkle rod
pepper profusely in the dining-room
in order to disperse tho uninvited
Even now the t hine.-" lad ie.s are
sometimes hooted at when they ven
ture out of the legation. If such
things happened to our minister at
I'ekin we would say thut the Chinese
were only benighted savages, any
way, whlcii would account for it.
He is Very Numerous and Very Happy
Some of my most intimate acquaint
ances have been the mocking-birds
in these California groves. It seems
almost unnecessary to cage them,
they are so happy among the ener
blooming trees; but cages hang in
balconies, at doors and windows, all
about the courts, and under the
eaves; and passing down tho 6frreets
one hears at all hours gashes of mel
ody from the wonderful mimickers in
their prisons. It is a cheerful sound,
yet I like better to listen to them as
they flit at will where the red pome
granates flower, where tho wild figs
rear their massive canopies, where
they may hide their young as they
choose in the fragrant orange tree
One splendid fellow has his perch
on a windmill fan opposite my door,
where all day long he pours out trills
rapturous with glee. Some mornings
he is in-such an ecstasy that he bub
bles down his notes in snatches,
wasting no time in weaving them to
gether, whenever I appear on tho
doorstep. I know he watches for my
coming, for he apparently hoards his
musical quiver full of gay darts,
keeping silence for intervals when 1
am unseen, letting them fly in an ar
rowy shower, as if he would transport
me, when 1 reappear. He is a saucy
tyrant who pecks at my hat, my hair,
my gown, when I venture too near
the rose vine on the lattice where his
newly-hatched babies are.
And a still saucier kinsman of his
.ries to rule with sovereign sway my
neighbor' dooryard, says a San Diego
letter to'Jthe Christian Union. So
domineering has the latter becoma
that he appears regularly every Mon
day morning when the family wash
ing is being hung to dry. Near at
hand he lights on a bough and sings
jubilantly. He tilts and courtesies,
and fairly gurgles wih ecstatic
gushes as the white garments go up
in varied array to float in the breeze.
But when the red bandanna handker.
chiefs of the men are pinned flapping
to the line suddenly his ecstatic note
changes, his . jubilant mood deserts
him, and his voice, but lately full of
melody, becomes that of an unmis
takable scold. He bristles, he blus
ters, he pours forth defiant menaces
at the very top of his voice. And at
last he retreats in high dudgeon, nor
will ho return while the objectiona
ble red flags flutter from the line.
Not a Pure Breed.

A Strange Story Told to lite Clitel of
Police or Paterson, N. J.
A tall, gray-bearded man of evident
intelligence told a singular story to
Chief of Police Graul of Paterson, N.
J., at the police station recently. He
had spent the night tlforc as a home
less lodger. He says ha owns the bat
tlefield of Bull Hun, at Manassas, Viv.
According to his story his name is
Lester Lowman, and he was born
sixty years ago in Chemung county.
New York. He was a "49er" and
made a fortune in. the gold fields of
California, both by prospecting and by
the sale of a pick which ho invented
and made. He married a daughter of
the late Ira T. Ludlum. once surveyor
of the port of New York. He had a
factory in Newark, N. J., where he
made his patent picks. Mr. Lowman
and his wife went to Europe, and he
left her there and returned to the
United States. He says he bought
the battlefield of Bull Run, 640 acres,
as a speculation, hoping that the gov
ernment would want it for a national
park. He alleges that his wife squan
dered his fortune in Europe, and that
his sistcr-in-law misappropriated $14,
000 worth of diamonds which he in
trusted to her.
He employed Addison Ely of Ruther
ford, N. J., to look after his interests,
and one clay when lie went to Justice
Howard's office to consult Mr. Ely, the
justice, he alleges, pushed him with
such violence that he fell, injuring his
back so severely that he was com
pelled to spend some time in hospitals
at nackensack and Paterson.
Lowman said that he had thought of
enlisting when the war broke out, but
had prayed for guidance, and had re
ceived a divine answer that he should
not do it He was drafted later, but
sent a substitute. The old man at
times acted as if slightly deranged,
but his story was plausibly and ration
ally told. "
They Were Not to Ite Sacrificed on the
Altar of Love.
Warsaw was his name Captain
Warsaw, of the Pacific Mail company.
Maybe you recall the man now. He
was commander of the Japan when
she was burned in the Eastern seas
about twenty years ago. Well, Cap
tain Warsaw had wonderful whiskers,
and they were dearer to htm than the
apple of his eye than life itself, one
might as wi-11 say when one is about
it, for he shufil J off his mortal coil
sooner than have them shaved wliiie
he was yet in the flower of his career.
The captain met a girl one day as
captains will and the captain fell in
love with her. Later on he told her
about his pasion, and, like the girl in
the "I!ab r.aU-.ids," "she reciprocated
Will you marry me, then?" said
the captain. "-Life is a blank without
"I'd like to," answered the girl,
"but whereas I love you, I cannot
aiutcii inysoit permanently to a pair
of whiskers. Shave them and I am
"But I could not think of such a
thing?" protesteil the captain.
"Well," said the maiden, with a
shrug of her pretty shoulders, "yon
pays your money and you takes your
choice. Which is it to be? Me or the
"W'hiskcrs," murmured the mariner,
with a sigh, and, having withdrawn
to a respectful distance, he blew his
brains out. . .
Ah! those were the halcyon days
when whiskers were ""hiskers.
