TTIE WASHINGTON OTITIC, SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 22, 1890.
CELEBRATING HIS DAY. ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH OF GEORGE WASHINGTON. llcmitirtil TVontlior Gay Crnirdft unit llrllllnnt Continues on tho Avenue Oldest InlmliltiiiitiOIcor mill Mho Ttiuttunuila "f Visitor, When tlio cordial fnco of Old Sol peeped over Ibo custom lillls and began lo send Ills worm smiles down upon thu Capital of tho nation tills mornlne; there was a spontniicoci exclama tion of thanks from thousands of grateful throats that inailu thu foundations of tho houses vibrato and the big bronzo Indian on the domu of thu CapKol tremble. As tho day god began to slowly ascend toward tho me ridian, little patches of fleecy cloud skurricd and skimmed across tho great cxpanso of clear bluottUy as if ashamed to show themselves on tho bosom of such n pcrrect ilrmamcnt nnd dissolved into nothingness. This Is tho way Washincton's birthday was ushered In at tho city which bears the name of the first ruler of these great United States. Ab the day advanced tho streets throughout the clly began to tako on an animated appearance. At Hist llttlo groups of men wcro to be seen; then a few matronly ladles ear rying baskets went on errands which were to culminate In cood chcor nnd many thanks from their boardcis, trundled nlong, stopping occasionally to greet with a cheery good-morning other matronly old ladles bent on tho tame sort of eirand: then two or throo early moinlng bicycle riders, out to till their lungs with .the early morn ing air, whizzed around tho corner into Pennsylvania avenue. Gradually, however, the llttlo groups of men and women began to swell Into crowds, and tho crowds Into steady stienms, until by 0 o'clock the Avenue was a perfect sea of gaily dressed humanity. The side streets re sembled llttlo human rivulets empty Ing into tho great human river on tho Avenue, which eddied and whirled and surged In the greatest good humor and enjoyment. The railroad trains from every section emptied their quota of visitors into the city, and when the sun reached Its zenith, the Capital of the nation presented a scene of kaleido scopic beauty. Tho Stars and Stripes floated from every flagstaff, every young lady was decked out in some beautiful colors, tho odor of flowers was discern ible everywhere, gallant beaux strut ted up and down, dressed in their l)cst Sunday-go-to-meotinc clothes and their high, shiny silk hat wollsbed with even greater care than usual; blcv cles whirled In endless confusion over the smooth concrete pavements with gay - colored streamers float ing from tho handles; horses and turnouts whirled hither and thither; gaily dressed soldiers were scatteicd in the scene, and the memo lablcdayon which the Father of his Country saw tho light of day was being commemorated in a way that only the city of Washington knows how to do him homage. In steady volumes tho sightseers and visitors surged toward the places of in terest throughout the city, and every public building was boftteged, while the Capitol lluildlng was borne down on by thousands of sightseers to" get a peep into tho great halls where tho lawB of the nation are dispensed and where the great men of history walked over Its marble, halls and passed under Its missive, portals. The other buildings leccivcd their share of attention. A black Cerberus guarded each en trance to tho Capitol and turned the disappointed crowds away with tho simple words: "Closed to-day," and tho steM-sccrs were compelled to content themselves with vicwim: tho outside of the great building and bringing their imagination into play as to what tho Inside looked like. Viewed from the steps of tho Capitol buildlngWashington City lay 6tretchcd out uciorc tno gaze 01 tno sigut-sccrs, a scene of panoramic loveliness. Gay colored flags floated everywhere, and away in the distance, on tho Potomac, could be seen tho Stars and Stripes floating from the very topmost trucks of vessels as they lay anchored, nnd the entire city under tho gorgeous sunlight was a shimmering and animated scene of beauty. Tho morning was observed in a quiet, reverent way at the Executive Mansion. A beautiful American ting floats from the flag-staff on ton of thelmilding, hut tho house was closed to general visi tors. Host of the employes were given a full holiday, but Secretary Halford and Assistant Pruden, with a few mes sengers and doorkeepers, remained on duty. Secretaries Bluiue and Window were the first callers received by tho Presi dent, with whom he held a lengthy con ference. He also entertained i iter Attorney-General Sillier and ox Secretary Delano. Among tho other callers were Senators Allison, Hawlcy, Justice Field, and Representatives Perkins, Browne, Grosvenor and Harrows. Streams of people In holiday ttlre kepi up a steady tramp, tramp, tramp over tho smoothly-paved roadways in front of thu 1'xccutive Mansion and looked In pleasure ami wonder at tlw residence of the Chief Hulcr of tho nation. Then tho stream flowed by the great War Department, up toward tho mammoth Washington Monument, which looked like n great gaunt spectre, silhouetted against tho clear blue sky and towering up Into tho very heavens, lty tho Smithsonian Institute tho hu man river surged and chattered liku a veritable Babel, and so on around past the other public buildings and places of lenown. The livery stablo proprietor reaped lich harvests, ami many a loving couplo took advnutago of tho holiday to drive out into tho country, whoro they could whisper their llttlo words of lovo to each other without fear of being over heard and be lomautio; and so tho day woru on. Veneruule Celebrants, Tho venerable and gray-halrcd mem bers of "Tho Oldest Inhabitants" cele brated tho day In a lilting manner lu their rooms in tho Corcoran building this morning. Nearly all tho mombors of this historic association woiu prusout when tho business meeting, which was held previous to tho public meeting, was called to order. At that tlmo probably flvo hundred years of Ufa woro represented. John Marbury presided, Henry Uuppoit and John Miller, who were born In 1H29, and John Ar dlcscr, who llrst saw tho light in 1820, wcro elected to membership, and tho application of Henry Tclsou Stuwart for tho same position of honor, was placed on fllo. President Marhury then spoko of a letter ho had re ceived f loin n gentleman who wanted tho members of thu Oldest Inhabitants to parado up Pennsylvania avcuuo be hind n band of music. Hu thought this winldbotho proper mannor In which ' jolebrato the day, but those present at to-day's meeting, ovidontly did not, for thoy heartly applauded tho presi dent when he announced that ho ha 1 lelectoil tho suggestion. Mr J- II Shilos offered a icsolutlon (lliu ling that a special mumoii.il meet tug lA held In May next in a trlbuto to jho deceased numbers of tho nsiocl atlon. The icsolutlon, without tho slightest dlsLiissloi), was referred lo n special committee, and it will probably bo adopted at tho next meeting. There waB a hcnily burst of assent when 3Ir. Jlarlmry suggested that tho association present to Mr. Thompson a gold-headed cane on tho occasion of tho celebration of his golden wedding, which will taku placo at his residence, 1115 ( street north west, on the evening of March -I, next, lleforo anything could hu said on tho suggestion Mr. Thompson wanted all the members of the associa tion to come to his house on that night and help him celebrate. Ho failed, however, to inako tho mcmucis forget about tho suggestion, and it is probable that ho will receive thu cane, which will convey to him tho esteem in which hu is held by his fol-low-inembers. Thu association then accepted n copy of n woik entitled "A Trlbuto to W. AV. Corcoran," presented by Marshall Wlncbergcr. Tho latter was Immediately tendered a vote of thanks. Another member caused a ripplo of surprise to run around tho hall by pro scnting nil picscnt with photographs of Presidents Washington and Harri son. The meeting then adjourned, and the celebration of the day com menced. President Marhury, after making a short speech on the object of the meet ing, introduced Mr. Noblo D. Lamer. Tho latter, apologiziug for his youth, read that Stirling and noblo speech, ''Washington's Farewell Address." Ho rend It with a distinctiveness and force that must have made those present foci as did the members of Congress, who heard this same address from Washington's own lips. Tho applause that greeted Mr. Larncr when ho had concluded lusted several min utes, nnd then a vote of thanks was pre sented to him. Mnrshal Winebergcr spoke on "The Two Washingtons." Ho compared the four great leaders of the woild Alexander tho Great, Hannibal, Civsar nnd IJonapaito to Wash ingtonand' said that, while tho latter was as groat a military leader as any of them; ho differed from them because he did not make war for gain. Then ho compared Washington's peaceful ending to tho terriblo deaths of these four men and wound up his address by speaking of the past and present City of Washing ton. President Marbury then lead a short sketch of tho life of V. W. Corcoran, after which the meeting ndjoumed and the members went homo to cat their Washington's birthday dinners. 'J nose present at tlio meeting were: II. F. Dyer. Y,. L. Corblu, J. M. Wright, Robert Ball, F. A. Tucker, Jaines Pilling, Jacob Vlchmcyer, William Recon, A. if. Jones, 8. W. K. Handy, Dr. J. T.

Tha Hcnato wins; of the Capitol t onlay was almost deserted. Tho Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds was to have met, but It mustered only thrco inoni- hers, and the meeting was abandoned, i Tim Judiciary Committee and tho Commit tee on Naval Affairs did not get quorums, and their meeting, therefore, wcro post- . iioncd. Bcnators Allison, Aldrich, Hlscock, Hpoouer and Jonos of --No- i vaila held a conference lu tho room i of tho Committee on Finance, presumably I to discuss tariff and the undervaluations bill, although Senator Allison, In answer to j a question, said blandly that tho nicotlng was "purely accidental." I Very few visitors were admitted to tho Capitol. After noon the Doorkeeper shut. out an wno wcro not in soma way con nected with the two houses ot Congress. Covering; the Itelll Issue. Senator Chandler to-day received tho fol lowing telegram from Thillp Walter, clerk of the United States District Courtat Jack sonville, Fin. It having been stated on tho floor or the Senate that tho principal law-breakers lu Florida arc officers of tho United States courts, 1 doslre to brand this as an utter falsehood, which for live months has been published by a venomous, ultra-paitlsan press for tho purpose of cov ering up the real Issue. Not caring how much they Incited their tools to commit murder as Jong as thoy.could cover up their friends theyhavo kept this up uutll my lire, and other members of tho court aro not any moro safe than Saunders was In somo localities. This I am ready to prove by Democratic testimony, If needed. If a Senatorial or Congressional commissioners will Investigate this entire matter, tho election frauds and tho court, neither the llepubllcans of Florida nor tho people of tho United States will bo ashamed of us, and I can- assure you that if elections wero conducted as they are In Connecticut or New Hampshire none of tho present delegation In cither House from this Stale would bo misrepresenting us. 1 havo been clerk of theso courts for nearly twenty years. I havo never been charged with uny crime until now. I made up the present jury lu every particu lar and drew It the sanio as all other juries during that time, and the printed report that the juries as drawn contained but ono Democrat to every twenty-two Republicans Is false." "World's Fair Prospects. The few Itepresentatlves that wcro at the Cnpttol to-day spent most of their tlmo discussing tho prospects of the vote on tho World's Fair on Monday. Nearly all agreed that the matter could not ho settlod in ouo day, and some wcro Inclined to tho belief that the greater part of tho week would bo consumed before a settlement could be reached. Balloting on the site Is a special order for Monday, and should the House adjourn on that day without coming to a conclusion the special order would bo lost. To prevent this the workers for the bliTercut cities aro endeavoiing to effect au arrange ment whereby tho House will take a recess from day to day until the mattor Is dis posed of and thus retain tho special order. Mr. Sprlugcr, of Illinois, one of Chicago's most active' supporters, believes that tho site will! bo selected In thrco or four bal lots, but ho Is almost alouo In thinking this. It is probable that a recess will at least betaken from Monday ovenlng until Tues day morning, and iu this event the lobby ing that will tako place during the recess will iu all probabil ity result In a material change in tho status of tho llrst ballot on Tuesday. A number bf doubtful members will chance their votes without a great deal of porsua slou. Washington and St. Louis hope to gain a great deal by the recess. When the site matter has been disposed of, the bill suitable to the city selected will be taken up by the House, and there will bo a discussion of somo length. Cbauncey Depew was at the Capitol to day, but the only member he found a chanco to tall: to was Mr. Moore of Massachusetts. Major Grant and ex-Secretary Whitney aro also in tho city and a great crowd of other New Yorkers aro expected to-night and tai morrow. Chicago's great contingent will also arrive before tho ballot. A number of representative St. I.ouls people arc lu tho city and more expected. TALMAGE AS A FINANCIER. When Dr. Talmage came to Brooklyn, nearly twenty years ago, ho received only a small salary, .$5,600 a year. Tho figure was raised to $7,000, on which he subsisted for several years, when It was raised to $12,000, where It has remained for twelve yeais. All told the Tabernacle congregation has paid Dr. Talmage not moro than $175,000 salary, on which ho has lived and supported a town and country residence. His outsldo earnings have steadily In creased from year to year until $110,000 will about cover the entire atnouut. Dr. Talmago's country placo at East hampton, I.. I Is valued at $20,000.

London, Feb. U3. The unrelenting war fare against the Hebrew race In Russia and tho intermittent anti-Semitic crusade In Germany and other countries have led to proposals for a meeting of prominent and representative European Jews, to which It Is understood a few Americans of that race will also be Invited at Amsterdam or somo other city In a small nationality In the courso of tho coming summer. Tho principal meas ure to bu discussed will undoubtedly bo the raising of a fund to bo dcVoted to tho protection of their brethren from tho piosccutlons and Inviditous distinctions to which they aro now subjected in tho ma jority of countries throughout tho world, llaron Much has promised to attend such a congress, If it takes place, and it Is confidently 6ald that tho storm of Indigna tion aroused by his famous pamphlet ot last year, wherein he practically urged tho assimilation of the Jews with the people among whom they dwell has convinced him that tho spirit of tho race is almost at present subdued. This being the case, ho is of the opinion that the only courso Is for the Jews to fight In every possible manner for their rights, using largely tho press and persistent per sonal appeals to persons exalted by position and reputed for Justlco and humanity. Tho apparently implacable attitude of Ituesla toward the Hebrew race has led to enormous losses among tho shop-keepers and money-lenders In tho different prov lueec where tho debtors onenlv defy tho hated Jews, whoso expulsion they deem u temporary Intervention of Providence In their behalf. The thirty lawyers Just e.xlled from Odessa wero among the most prominent In that com mercial city, and by their departure moro than ono Important transaction will be hin dered, If not prevented altegcther, to tho great loss of trade there. A prominent London banker observes that too much prominence cannot bo given to the fact that where tho Jews aro most kindly treated they lose tho character istics of which their enemies com plain, as Is Instanced In England and France. Indeed, Iu tho latter country, he remarks, tho peasantry are more Jewish than the veriest Shylock, and would speed ily fleece such a class of money-lenders as arc complained of in other countries, while In the cities the Jewish bankers find It more difficult yearly to hold their own against their Christian rivals. .Sneuk Tlilevos fit Work.

PEDESTRIAN CAPABILITIES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPEE. l'ojmlnrlty or tlm Wit lilncloti .Monu inent Nourly n Una'tcr or a Mil lion l'crnoin llnvo VaitMl It Cits tndlnu Mount anil III .Men, "When Congress, In nhuist of patriot ism, aroused by tho Centennial celebra tion of 1870. decided to go nhoad and finish thu Washington Monument, It not only wiped out a loug-BUndlug mi (tonal reproach, but It gave to Washing ton a new point of attraction as uiilmio as the big-domed Capitol Itself. For there is nothing In nil tho wido world equal to the Monument, just as overy truo American is bound to beliuvo that there is no building In all tho earth that can compare In majesty and Imprcss ivenrss with thu big marblo pilo whuro Congress grinds at tho legislative mill. It Is true that the Monument can no longer boast that it Is the tallest struu 'uru in the world. Thu Klffcl tower exceeds it In height, but that is only a tcmporaiy affair, designed to show the possibilities of sliuctnral lion in thu hands of a clever engineer, and in n few years it is to bo torn down. Tho Monument will remain for all time, nud will be as grand an attraction to future generations as It Is to the present. IJvery visitor to Washington makes It a point to visit the Monument and to tnko a view of tho gloilous city lying at its feet, nnd of tha broken country that lies all about it. Far off to the west, If tho day bo clear, hu ran just see the outlines of tho Blue Hldgo, sixty or seventy miles nwny, and nearer by hu can discern Sugar Loaf .Mountain, "forty miles off. Baltimore, which is about the same distance away, is not to bo seen, however, owing to tho rolling, wooded country, which limits thu Northern honVon. Colonel Krnst, the Commissioner of PublicBulldings and Grounds, vfho has cluirge of the Monument, says that since it was opened, in 1883, 2.10,8o.'i persons have visited it up to tho begin ning of this month. This is an enor mous number, but thu popularity of the big shaft knows uo wane, and every day hundreds, If not thousands, of por sons go out to seo It now and take a rido In tho elevator, just as they did when It wns a lilllc younger. Thu two biggest days for the Monu ment weic the inauguration of l'rcsl dent Harrison and tho conclavo of Knights Templar here in October. During tho week of thu lajtcr over 26,000 persons visited thu Monument, and at inaugurallan timu there wero a few more thnn this number. On one day during tho conclave thu ele vator, running every twenty min utes, carried up 0G0 persons, while 7,000 more, disappointed in their hope of getting a scat, trudged up all tho 803 steps to the top. This Is a jouincy that tabes n fair walker from llttecn to eighteen minutes, but many women and children consume a half hour in the operation, and not a few weary before they leach thu 000 feet mark" and come plodding down without having reached tho top. If accurate statistics could bu obtained of the numbeis of thoso who walk up the stairs by preference and of thoso who would not make the ascent except on tho elevator, they would throw a great light on the capabilities of the American peoplu as pedestrians. Colonel Ernst's llKurcs show that last month 7,009 persons took tho elevator, whilo 3,225 walked up, but the latter number, doubtless, includes a gieit many who acted under a sort of compulsion, as they would have had to wait a long time for a scat. During tho Knights Tumplar Conclave the lino of thoso waiting for a ride filled the space about thu elevator and wound twice around tho monu ment, and the peoido stood two hours before they reached tho elevator. Many who lido up walk down, as that is an easy enough matter, taking about cloven minutes. Tho Monumeut is no longer tho sccnu of such vandalism as was common a few years ago. "I think the newspapers deserve much of thu credit for tuts im piovement," said Captain John F. Mount, tho custodian of the big shaft. "They called attention to tho injury that was beinc done the Monumeut by thoso who chipped off pieces of stone, or scribbled their names everywhere, and wo have very little trouble on that score now. In tho last three months a man aud a boy havo been arrested for these offenses, but, in the two months previous, there was no arrest. "Xor arc we much bothered with cranks. Last summer a man got to the top who talked in nn apparently de mented way about committing suicide by jumping from ono of tho windows, but the doorman quickly got hold of him and hustled him down in tho ele vator. To tell tho truth, It would tako considerable twisting and squirming to get out of a window up there, and the Moorman would discover any would-be suicldu before he could mako tho plunge." A rido in the elevator appears to pos sess great attractions for the young bridal couples, who are such a feature in all of Washington's most public places. Pcihaps they cujoy the proetss of being packed so closely in thu elevator with somo thiiiy-tivo other per sons that thcio is an opportu nity for that gentle presume of the hands which is commonly affected by bride and jrroom, but which is not looked upon as good form when done in the sight of "scoffers. In tho ele vator thu crowding of the sight-seers ntl'ouls a chuuoo for this tender demon stration without its being witnessed by H obstipation, 1 F not remedied in season, is liable to 1 become habitual anil chronic. Dras tic purgatives, by weakening the bowels, confirm, rather than cure, the evil. Ayor's Pills, being mild, effective, and strengthening iu their action, are gener ally recommended by the faculty as the best of nporlents. "Having been subject, for yean, to constipation, without being able to llnd much relief, I at last tried Ayer's Pills. 1 deem It both a duty and a pleasure to testify that I havo derived great bcn ullt fiom their use. For over two years past 1 havo takcu one ot these pills every night before retiring. 1 w ouhl not willingly bo without them." Q. W. ltowmau, 20 Kaat Main St., Carlisle, Pa. " T have been taking Ayer's Tills and ifiing them in my family since 18,17, and cheerfully recominenil them to all in need of a safo but effectual cathartic." John M. Hoggs, l.ouisvlllo, Ky. ' For eight years I was afflicted with constipation, which nt lam became so bad that tho doetois could do no morn for mo, Then I began to tako Ayer'i Pills, nnil soon tho bowels recovered their natural and regular action, so that now I am in excollcnt health."

All the employes at tho Monument except the watchmen woru formerly In the Navy, Perhaps this selection wns m a do because it was thought that old tars, nucutoincd to climbing to tho maMhcad and performing other upro batlc feats commonly attributed to sail ors, would bo less likely to low their bends nt the dizzy summit of tho shaft than landsmen luss accustomed to such heights.
