Washington, May .?[Special.]?The
old Chinese minister has gono, ami the
new one is duly Installed at tho legation.
Theso Chlncso diplomats have eomo queer
requirements of etiquette to observe in
their dealings one with another. For in?
stance, when a now minister arrives nt a
capital to receive his predecessor, ho must
go to a hotel with all his retinue and re?
main there llvo days beforo taking charge.
This Is an act of courtesy to the outgoing
minister. As the rctinuo of a Chinese
diplomat usually consists of 15 or 20 por
sons, tho rule is a good <>no for tho hotel
keepers. After the new man has been in
town five days he may present his creden?
tials. Then tho old minister passes over
to him the great seal, and this is done
with tremendous ceremony. Not till the
great seal has lasen transferred does the
new man assume the responsibilities of
his post. Nor does tho requirement of dip?
lomatic etiquette end here. Tho outgoing
minister must not leave town at once.
That would not bo courteous to his suc?
cessor, according to the Chinese notion.
He, too, must stop at a hotel. Tho timo
which ho must linger near by, ready to
givo any assistance or advice which his
successor may require of him, is fixed at
48 hours. When tho two days have passed,
and not before, ho is frco to go his way.
It Is scarcely necessary to odd that all
these points of otiqnotto wero duly ob?
served on tho occasion of the exchange of
ministers at the Chinese legation a few
The New Minister.
The new minister Is already becoming
qulto popular here. He speaks fluent Eng?
lish, having been educated in London,
whoro he actually hung out bis shinglo
and practiced low for a timo. His com?
mand of ourlanguago gives him a tremen?
dous advantage over any of tho Chinoso
ministers wo have had hero in recent
years, and ho is making tho most of it.
He is as curious as Li Hung Chang. At
all tho dinners he attends, all tho recep?
tions, and In all his official and personal
intercourse, bo asks innumerable ques?
tions, liy tho timo he receives orders to
movo on to somo other capital?tho Chi?

President McKinley has not yet sought
much amusement at the capital. Beyond
an occasional horseback rido ho sticks very
closo to his work at tho White House.
Years ago tho president was very fond of
baseball. Whilo a member of congress and
later as governor of Ohio he was frequently
soon nt the games. It wns supposed when
ho came down hero to bo the chief magis?
trate of tho nntlon that bis love for tho
national game would be found as strong
ns ever. Tho local manager built for tho
president's use in the top of his grand stand
n nlco Httlo box, equipped with a dozen
chairs, and sent the key of it to tho prosi
dont with bis compliments. Mr. McKin?
ley promised to innko uso of it, but up to
this time has not dono so.
An Amazing Fact.
Ono of tho most curious things in Im?
mun nature is the penchant which sonic
men have for getting their skins full of
red liquor ?t the oddest imaginable places
and under tho strangest circumstances.
I was onco in tho Mammoth cave with a
largo pnrty of excursionists, and four out
of five of them appeared to have n cra/.o
for drink. Tho disease becamo contagious,
and In two or three hours tho number of
cases of intoxication was amazing to be?
hold. The strango part of it wns that tho
liquor did not take effect till the men had
emerged from the envo into tho opon air.
Then it camo upon them with most dis?
astrous results. In New York at tho Grant
memorial cxerolscs I wns amazed to seo so
ninny cases of drunkenness among tho
guests. Ono would think thnt there, of all
places and of nil times, whisky would bo
xno last tning a man wouia think or, but
It was not ho. On account of the inolom
onoy of tho weather a largo number of tho
spectators had provided themselves with
bottles "to wnrd off pneumonia," and, al?
though no pneumonia bos been reported,
tho number of drunks passed nil belief. I
saw n distinguished senator fall off his
chair, so full was he. I saw a mem her of
congress disporting o huge bottle and oc?
casionally drinking from It right at tho
door of tho tomb of Grant. Many other
Instances of disgraceful intoxicutiou did I
Witness on that occasion.
It is a pity tho architects who designed
the United States capitol did not huvo

There is no gloomier or stullior placo in
any public building In this country than
tho corridors of the house of representa?
tives at the doors where curds nrc sent iu
by visitors who want to sco members. All
the daylight conies in from a little win?
dow at tho end of the narrow corridor, and
that is occasionally hidden from view by
tho pussing up or down of tho houso ele?
vator. To add to tho difticulty tho attend?
ants of the houso, whether from cnreloss
noss or thoso principles of economy which
are sometimes supposed to bo ofllcial vir?

Bishop Thomas Bowman, tho oldest liv?
ing member of tho opiscopnCy of tho Meth?
odist church, has announced his deter?
mination to rctiro from active work. Ho
has gone to Kvanston, Ills., to spend tho
remainder of his days with his daughter.
Bishop Bowman is not quite 80 years of
age. lie is in perfect health und in pos?
session of all his wonderful mental powers.
Among church people Bishop Bowman
will go down in history as tho greatest
builder of churches of his time. When he
went to St. Louis, 25 years ago, there were
but threo Kngllsh speaking Methodist
churches there. All the increase has been
largely duo to his elTorts. It Is said that,
ho has built more than 100 churches in
Missouri alone. His eloquence has brought
out contributions to build at least 1,000
churches, and ho bus dedicated over 1,200.
No stuto or territory Is without a church
that was dedicated by him. There uro not
many counties in the United States that
ho ban not visited and held services In.
His missionary travels liavo taken him in?
to tho thickly settled and high cultured
Fcctions of tho east, into tho south und
tdso across tho great western plains.
poulards of Largo Pattern ? Taffetas,
Wash Silks, llrocadcs and Damasks.
The shop windows display n bewilder?
ing assortment of protty things for spring
and summer wear. It soems, indeed, as if
every successive senson outdoes the previ?
ous tine in variety and beauty of color, ma?
terial and style. It Is dlilicult to choose a
summer wardrobe when so many cquully
attarctivo fabrics uro to bo hud. Ono can?
not buy thorn all, yot it is hard to dceido
which Is preferable. In silks, foulnrds of

dark ground, blue, red, greon, brown or
black, or in ono of these colors on a whlto
ground, are tho newest thing shown, but
there uro pluin, changeable, printed,

tints, wash silks, brocades and damasks.
A great deal of silk grenadine is also soon

lead. In woolens tho new ennvasos aro

ionable colors in dress goods, and uro also

As for tho cotton and linen fabrics, there
is practically no limit to thorn. Among
the prettiest, aro the satin striped lawns

hut tho piques, nainsooks and gala tea

Kcru grasscloths have a new lease of life,

Washington, May 10.?[Special.]?Wo
do not hear much in Washington those
days oxcopt tariff talk. Kvorybody Is dis?
cussing the senate rovision of tho bill and
comparing it with tho house measure.
Wherever one goes ho hears talk of tho
ilnunco committee hill, tho Dinglcy bill,
tho Wilson bill, the McKinley bill, the
Mills bill and of rates and schedules, ad
valorem and specillc, till one's head has a
tendency to ache. There never yet was a
tariff bill that suited ovorybody. If ono
were to judgo by the expressions heard
about tho corridors of tho hotels and where
statesmen most do congregate, tho present
tu riff bill docs not Bult any ono. Of course
this is not strictly true. Thero aro plenty
of people satisfied with It. Thoy, as a rule,
aro gentlemen who have interest in only
one or two things, and tho rates upon
these few things happen to bo fixed just
right. Hut senators whoso constituents
aro interested in a wldo rango of produc?
tion or manufacture Und themselves in
very hot water.
If one wants proof of tho accuracy of tho
somewhat famous saying of a famous man
that the tariff is a local question, ull ho
has to do is to come to Washington and
spend n day or two among the statesmen
who uro discussing tho current measure.
The air is filled with sulphurous remarks.
Inquire what lies behind nil tho complain?
ing and growling, and in nine cases out of
ten you will find that It is becauso the
rates of duty aro not Bntlsfuotory upon
soino nrtlclo produced In this city or that
county or perohancc in somo stete or region.
Tho senator from ono part of tho country
muy ho elated over the duty fixed on wool,
for Instance, while a senator from another
stnto may bo predicting that tho country
will go to tho domnitlon bowwows If that
wool rate is not put up or down, as the
caso may be. This is oxplained by tho fnct
that tho constituents of ono senator raise
wool to soil while the constituents of the
other buy wool to use in their mills. So.it
goes. It would bo exceedingly difficult to
find any principle that runs through tho
warp and woof of the whole business of
tariff making. It seems rather to bo a
maze of conflicting selfishnesses and inter?
ests, dependent in every caso upon the
point of viow.
You can always tell what a mnn Is going
to say about a given rate of duty by in?
quiring tho locality whence ho comes.
I heard an old senator who has had a
deal of experlenco in tariff making say tho
other day there never would bo a tariff
satisfactory to ovorybody till the United
States was sulidlvided into little lots about
SOO feet square and a rate of duty mado to
suit the inhabitants of each lot.
Fulling and Hauling.
Hut thero is a tariff bill, and despite
tho prowling and kicking and pulling and
hauling it is going to Ik> passed some timo
or othor. Just when, no ono isnhlo to say,
but I should guess nimm the middle of
July. Tho senate will take up the hill on
the 18th inst., and as thero is no apparent
disposition to delay it a couple of months
should seo it pretty well out of tho way.
Thero is no telling, however, bow long a
senate debate will last, for, ns a member
of the house put it tome today, "They
haven't any Ovo minute ruin over there,
but instead u rule which permits a man to
talk live days on the crossing of a t."
A most interesting study is that of the
manner in which the tariff enters into tho
details of tnuleand consumption, affecting
the trade and consumption of nearly all
tho articles used by our people. It is this
which makes a general tariff revision
such a tremendously important matter to
our country nnd which excites such gn at
interest in all tho details of tho work in
committee and congress. An illustration
of this may bo found in a visit which a
large delegation of fish merchants from
Now York, Philadelphia, Boston and Chi?
cago mado to Washington while the tariff
bill was tinder consideration in tho finance
committee of the senate. Their business
was to protest against tho proposed in?
crease in tho duty on stilt herring ami salt
mackerel. They pointed out that herring
is a staplO nrticlc of food for the Dam s,
Norwegians, Poles, Russians and Swedes
who form a large part of tho population of
the northwestern states. In view of the
fact that no herring that could take tho
place of tlto imported ilsh are caught this
side of Holland and Norway, it wr.s con?
tended that It would not bo fair to Increase
the cost of herring to tho poor popple who
iifo it on their tahh -?. There is no Anier
lean herring Industry to rpcak of, und
consequently protection is not madi d.
Threat* of Retaliation.
'] heso visitors call id the attention of tho
tariff makers to the interesting fact that
the only countries In Kuropu of which wo
hoy i.rc Ni.rwry ;.im1 Holland. These
are, by tili < tld coincidence, the only conn
trie; on the com ment of Europe which
admit our pork, beef and Hour without
tariff 01" other restrictions. Norway and
Holland havo protested against, the In?
crease of our duties against their fish and
threaten to retaliate by taxing our pork.
It said only two votes are Inokln? In tho
Norwegian parliament to carry an ?ttni k
upon our Dork trade. Both Ncrwnv nnd
rtonniui buy very much more ot tho Unit?
ed States than we buy of them, and It Is
argued that it is poor policy to cut off thot
market by a scramble for a little more
duty on Norwegian and Dutch flab. Wo
sell to Holland each year about $00.(100,000
of our products and buy from her $0,000,
000. Wo sell to Norway $2,500,000 and
buy from her $400,000.
The agitation of the duty on fish bus
brought out tho interesting fact that her?
ring is a poor man's food, while mackerel
is found chtelly upon tho tables of tho well
to do. Therefore it is argued that it would
bo poor polioy to tax herring and mnckerol
as if they wero in tho sumo class. Boston
is tho greatest mackerel market in tho
United Suites. Tho dealers thoro handle
over half of all tho mackerel brought to
this country, nnd tbo avoruge value in this
market Is $40 a barrel. The Boston dealers
handle every year about 00,000 barrels of
imported uiuckcrcl, showing that tho trade
is much larger than any one not familiar
with tho facts would suppose. While our
own fishermen tako a good many mackerel
they do not catch enough to supply tbo de?
