OUR WASInNJ GT4N LETTER.
I is but natural that the coun
try should wish to know more of
the latest Presidential candidate,
Belva Lockwood, the nom inee of
the Woman's Rights party. ?hi
candidate's life, written by an-Im'
partial hand, as the only means
for completely supplying'this de
mand, will doubtless appear at an
early day. Here in Washington
any book of the kind is needed.
She is to be seen almost every (lay
treading the streets mounted on t
ricy ale, head erect, and feet work
ing with an energy which is in:li -
cative of the secret of her success
in life. She- was the first of her
sex to mount the tricycle an i de
demonstrate the right of woman
to ride whatever her business calls
and she also rides for the pleasure
it affords, as others do in their car
riages, and how she does ride!
No laggard's pace is hers. where
ever she goes she is the observed
of all observers. She is not a de.
votee of fashion in any respect.
She sets her own fashions. With
head in air and face earnestly, not
to say fiercely, pointing in the di
rection her industrious feet are
propelling her she whirls along.,
eyery turn of the crank flipflaping
her skirt with unceasing regularity.
She stops at nothing, and turns
aside only to pass slower goers or
pick a stretch of clear track where
on to display a pace which might
make Maud S. envious.
Of late a demand has sprung up,
for pictures of the Woman's
Rights cand(idate. In preparing
to supply this demand the artist
has been at a loss how to take her.
Blaine is generally represented as
speaking in the House or Senate,
C'leveland as standing on the ros
trum, Logan as cavorting~ on his1
war-horse, each in a position de
signedl to show thec man at his
best. Reflectinig on these things
the artist was not long in coming
to the conclusion that the proper
thing was to represent Belva
mounted1 on a tricycle, a familiar
sight in Pennlsylvania. avenue,
where as any one will say, she too,
appears at her b~est. T1he pictures
it is understood, will b)e ready at1
an early day. She might have
been taken pleading at the bar ;
laying down the law as any man
should, and often better than
men do; giving tit for tat after the
custom of the profession; taking
graceful flights of oratory, as ora
tors sometimes do, responsive to a
suggestion from the bench, citing
precedents and eases, principles
and p)ractice from a well-stored
repository of learning covered by
that well known bnnnet, r ..
ing to the jury for justice for her
client. But after due considera
tion the tricycle idea was a-lopted
as not (0ly the most novel, but the
most truiely characteristic.
The General Land Oice has
been investigating the appropria~
tion of the public lands, and it
has been discovered that upwards
of 5,000,000 acres of the public
domain have been illegally fencel
in, in Colorado, New Mexico, Ne
braska, Wyoming, Kittsas. Neva
da, by large cattle companies,
many of which are English and
Scotch. The large corporations
gobble the lan(d and the poor men
and actual setlers are exhlded.
It is to be hoped thiat the com.
missioner will wake a clean job of
it, and routs the illegal holders.
Other nonopolies are bad enough,
but when it comes to the people's
heritage the public lands being
monopolized by a few capitalist,
it is time to halt. Presi:lent 'Ar
thur hais, it is sai.1, settled] the va
can -v in the Cabin(t. lIle has vir

of the Treasury to (en. Gresham
The latter is willing to take the
place. Grcsham's transfer will
:robably make Frank Hatton
Postm-tster-General. as it is un-ler.
stood t'it the President is anxious
to reward Hatton especially well
for his good work at Chic.go.
A Western relublican ('ongress
man who reached here th's mfor
ning had a long t-alk a few days
since with ex-Gov-ernor St. John,
the prohibition candicate for Pres
ident. Mr. St. John told him that
both re)ublicans an I democi-ats
would be utterly surprised at the
vote wIich he would poll. lie con
fidently predictd that the prohi

if not more. lie estimated tbat in
his own State of K~ansas his vote
would be 40,000, and was certamn
it would be 50,000 in New York
State. lie also thought that the
prohibitioners would effect the re
sult in Wisconsin, Michigan, iowa,
and Ohio. lie characterized
Blaine's dodging issuie in Maine as
not only a cowardly, but a very
silly act, and one that had receiv

HE INSULTED PAPA.-'Emmna, I
hear you have broken off with
'Yes, I am sorry, but it had to
be. He insulted papa.'
'Why. what did he do?'
'Well, you know, last Sunday
night, papa kinder kicked him off
the steps, and when he came round
Monday he brought a pair of slip
pers, with the toes padded, and
asked me if I wouldn't get the old
man to put them on.'
