KKI'HKSllNT HIRt AS TA3IU KNOWS msr. General Uoynton lias suggested that tlio Army of the Cuiubcilnnil erect n ptatno to the Into Samuel J. Randall. 3lr. Itamlall did not servo wltli that aimy, but while with his troop In tho three months' service he did writo a letter to his personal fileml, Thomas A, S?cott, then Assistant Sccictary of War, sufgcstliiff the promotion of Colonel Thomas to u biigadlcrshlp, General Tliomns being afterward a commnndor hf the Army of the Cumberland. General Uoynton 's speclllc proposi tion is thnt the etntuo bo an equestrian one, and that 3Ir. Kendall be put for ward as the typical repiesentattvo of the Ainciicnn privato soldier. There t'rnilil certainly be none better, so f.ir as tho man goes. But !Ir. Ilamlall's service was so short and so devoid of incident, as it seems to us, as to give, this proposition an element of Incon gruity. It was not Sam llnnilnll, the privato, but Samuel .T. Itundall, the merchant and politician, whose letter had weight and Influence at tho War Department, then controlled by two of Pennsylva nia's chief business men and politicians. The true typo of the heroic soldier Is Lntour D'Auvergne, who, ris ing to a captaincy the same rank Hand all Anally held in his troop steadily refused promotion only to be immortalized by Napoleon under the unique title of "Fiist Gicnadhr of Franco." lie claimed to be competent only to command a compiny of grenadiers, but his "compmy" llnnlly numbered 8,000 men and was styled uy the enemy the 'In fernal column," on account of the dread inspired by its bayonet churgu'. Killed in action in 1S0O, until the Kin piic fell in ISM, his mime continued to be called at roll, and the oldest sergeant tn tho regiment replied: "Dead on tho rield of honor." Or Sergeant William Jasper of the Revolution, who at the siege of Fort Sloullrle in 1770, when the ilag-staff was shot away and the flag fell into the iirh outside the fort, sprang through an tmbrosure, rescued it, fastened it to n sponge-staff, replaced it on the para pet and there held it amidst a hail of bullets till another Hag-stall: could bo prepared. Offered the commission of a lieutenant, he declined the promotion. He performed numerous other exploits of personal daring, and was killed at tho assault on Savannah In 1770, while attempting to fasten the colors of his legiment on the parapet of the redout the regiment was assaulting. Find a soldier like these, General, anil hmnortali'c his features in endur ing bronze, and if the Army of the Cumberland wants to honor Samuel J. Randall, represent him us a statesman, for It was as such he gained his honor able and imperishable fame. THE COLUMIJUS L1BKA11Y. If the proposition adopted by the I'an-Americans yesterday to establish a Latin-American library In this city Is carried out, as it should be, it will bo a valuable contribution to the' llbrories and collections which already go far to make "Washineton a literary centre. It would be of especial value to tho hls toilcal student, as It would bo rich In books, maps and manuscripts relating to the discoveries, explorations, settle ment and development of the flourish ing Latin-American countries to tho south of us. If nothing clso wero ac complished than tho founding of this appropriately named Columbus Library the conference would have justified Its existence. AlimTKATION. The Pan-American Confeienco yes teiday adopted four resolutions with reference to arbitiatlon as a part of American public or international law. As adopted these resolutions read as follows: 1. That the principle of conquest shall not, during the continuance of the treaty of arbitration; bu iccognlzcd as admissible utidcr American public law. ' 2. That all cessions of territory made Curing the continuance ot the treaty ot arbitration shall bo void, It made under tlinats of war or the presence of an armed Jorce. if. A nation from' which such cession eball be exacted may demand that tlio va lidity of the cessions shall be&ubraltted to arbitration. -I. Any renunciation of the right to ar bitration, made under the conditions named Id the second section, shall be null nrwl void. It Is, perhaps, significant that Chill did not vote. It may seem somewhat ungracious to criticise arbitration at this time, but the plain truth Is that this plan to abolish wor and substitute diplomacy, under the guNo of arbitration, will probably fall the first tlmo it is really tested. Nations heretofore havo only consented to arbitration in matters concerning which they cared llttlo one way or tho other, or In cases where one nation felt It was In the wrong, and selected this wny out of it. No nation ever yet con sented, and, unless human nature changes materially, no nation over will consent, to arbitration on any essential point involving Its honor, Its dignity ir tho integrity of Its territory. In inch cases tho only appeal is to the ar bitrament of war, . i"-(3S, i WUBA;, 'Jills Is not to say thai tlio action ot yistcula.v is without value. It is of great value. It Is a step, however short, in tho right direction. It will probably do away with wars for which there Is no especial cause. In fine, It ought to picvont what wo may term avoidable wars. Our peaceful brethren of the (Juakcr persuasion and members of peace societies generally to tho con trary notwithstanding, nil wars are not avoidable, and will not bo so long as quarrels among nations which can only be dtteimlncd by war continue to oc cur, and they will so continue until the human Individuals who compose the nations can get along among them selves without recourse to tho civil and criminnl com Is Arbitration will fall whenover cither of tho parties thereto declines to bo bound by It, for the very palpable rea son that there Is no power lodged any wheio to enforce tho decision of the ar biliator. What would arbitration be tween, for Instance, Nicaragua and tho United States amount to If tho latter sliould decline, for any cans", to bo bound by tho decision of tho arbitrator? How could the decision bo in ado to stand? AVo are glad tho conference did what It could to prevent future wars, but Wo do not tho less believe that our navy should be built up until it is ready to cope successfully with that of any other nation on earth. The millennium has not come, neither has 11 dawned. The hope of universal peace Is n dream, bcautiful.irldcsccut, but still a dream. All tho swords have not yet been beaten iuto ploughshares, and ft would be a very foolish lumb that would chose a hungry lion for a bed fellow. HOW A1JOIJT TIIK IWUUUIl.

(irahamJl, Thomson in Lonijmaii's Muy-(Mint, FURTHER ABOUT BOOK BEER JCditor Critic: Your Impression this evening contains a learned and interest ing article from the Chicago JtcraUl, headed "How Hock Hcer was Named." There are one or two points upon which tho writer might give us further In formation, to wit: 1, "The Babylonians ond Assyilaus Invented beer." It would bo gratifying to obtain indubitable testimony to this statement, since tho Babylonian account of tho delngo casually mentions that among other articles taken Into the ark were "wine, beer uud divers provis ions." A strong probability o.Ists that some sort of beer was coexistent with man's thirst for it. At all ovonts It was evidently n common antediluvian drink. Soino contend that the Babylonian Tal mud was bodily stolen from that of the Jews. . Others, again, maintain the re verse. Seeing tho rcspcctlvo contem poraneous weight of evidence, the re verso would scorn, more probable, as tho cylinders antedate both. "Tho bock beer is only an uufit translation." Why a translation scarcely appears, The German "bock" is not limited to a male or "buck" deer. but equally slgulflcs tho male of tho whole of thalrango of animals from the antelope, stelbock deer and to tho goat. And tho extraordinary vital energy of these males in fulfilling their principal function in life is no Inapt slmllo for the revivifying clement the brew is presumed to possess. Though not wholly unfamiliar with Bohemia, I must candidly admit that.

At tho National lost evening tho Daly Company attained perhaps tho artistic bleb-water mark of their on gagement with tho brilliant, spirited and wholly, triumphant presentation of "As You Like It." llondtmla of nil sorts ond sir.es, of all ages, tempera ments, complexions and schools of acting wo havo had in tho past; ifoin.

Tho gcutlo graces of tho first and last must over placo whatioevcr their ucnlus has consecrated on a plane, or rather In a shilnc, which criticism hesi tates to profane. B.it of all tho rust who havo essayed tho well-worn role, who worthy to bear a candle to the brilliant and audacious flame of this glowing and almost flamboyant renll tlon? So live, so warm, so radiant a being, so Instinct with strong vitality and exuberant youth, lovo. and happi ness, the llottuinil of Ada Rehan scarcely seems to tread tho common earth, so bravo and buoyant Is the spirit which bears her up. It were, in deed, a pleasure to dwell upon, as It Is to recall, tho thousand and one wholly original and characteristic details of this lightsome, airy and most vivacious impersonation, which fairly lifted the audience from its feet and brought tho charmlug artist tho guerdon of a veritable o-ation at the closo of nearly every act In which sho figured. As It is, lime and spaco will only permit tho recollection of the admirable and most artistic completeness and consistence of tho whole. There seems to be some sort of subtle understanding between Miss Rohan and Mr. Drew, by virtuo of which thoy have agreed to divide tho honors of an engagement between them. Last night it wns Miss Rohan's evening and Orlando, though ono of tho most grace ful nnd engaging wo can remember, considerately merged himself a little In tho background, tho better to bring out tho charms and perfections of the lovely central figure of tho scene. Giving just the necessary half lights and shadows In this same well-domt- natcu uacKcrounu, yet eacn ana every ono a master stroke, most firmly and skillfully put In, were the 7'oucltstone of Sir. Lewis, the Adam and Jacaue of Sir. Fisher, the Uelia of SIIss Slorctti and tho foolish Audrey of SIIss Irving. All in all, it was such a picture of the immortal drama in tho Forest of Arden, so vivid in the high light and color of thcraic and radiant central presence, so well-balanced and well-modulated in nil the accessory details, as tho stage has seldom seen, and, being such, long will it linger in the memory of those who witnessed it. At the matineo this afternoon "As You Like It" will be repeated, nn.l to night tills memorable engagement will close with a doublo bill, "A Woman's Wont" ftnd "The Country Girl," in the latter of which, It Is alluringly an nounced, SIIss Rohan will appear as a boy. Welcome, Wilson lliirrott Tho New National Theatre will be occupied by Sir. Wilson Barrett nnd his superb London company next week. A particularly brilliant engagement is pre dicted, and the popular English actor will without doubt renew his former successes here. Sir. Barrett has a largo ciicle of fiiends and admirers in Wash ington, and he is as much of a social favorite hero ns any artist who has come to us from across the Atlantic. Sir, Barrett will be aided, ns on his former visit, by Sliss Eastlako and Georgo Bar rett. Tho plays announced for the week ore as follows: Slonday and Tues day nights, "Bcn-BIy-Chree;" Wednes day afternoon tho triplo bill, "The Color Sergeant," "A Clerical Error" and "Chatterton;" Wednesday night, "The Silver King;" Thursday night and Saturday matinee, "What Women Will Do," and Friday and Saturday nights, "CHto." This will probably be the last ap pearance of Wilson Barrett in Wash ington for soveral years. Ho goes to the Pacific Coast this sprlntr, bringing his American tour to a closo In Califor nia about the first of July. Sir. Barrett and his company will then return to England, and in the cominc autumn will open the new Olympic Theatre in London, which is now being built for him, and which will be his future theatrical home. This announcement would appear to set nt rest, for the present at least, tho rumor that a syndicate of wealthy New York gentle men pioposed to construct a theatre In the metropolis for Sir. Barrett, and that the English actor would become an American citlen, All of theabovo mentioned plays will bo mounted upon the National Theatre stage with nil the, attention to scenic effect and costumes that characterize all of Wilson Barrett's performances. Alliauch'a Grand Opera-Housa. On Slonday next the Carleton Opera Company will enter upon its second week of its spring and summer season at the Grand Opcra-Houso. The opera se lected for next week's bill is Offenbach's bright operetta, "TheBrigunds," which has had such a successful run la Now York.

Thodiesses are llchand nppropi late, and form no in significant feature of tho general suc cess. It is seldom that an opera Is better mounted and sung than the "Brigands" by tho Carleton Opcr.i Company.

Ono of tho most at tractive of Its Ilnnl features Is to be the last concert In tho series by tho Boston Symphony Orchestra, which will take placo on Wednesday evening, April 1)0, at Lincoln Music Hall. To give especlnl eclat to this occasion Mr. Nikisch has succeeded In inducing an artist of rare ability and European reputation, Sladame Stcinbach-Jahns, who was his leading prima donna at tho opera in Lclpsic, of which he was conductor, to come to this country to sing throughout the tour which follows this concert. Since her marriage into a prominent social circle In Lclpsic Sladame Johns has retired from tho stago and nppears only at concerts for charitable purposes, always with dis tinguished success. With n determina tion to make this conceit a partleul trly notoblo ocension there is to bo another soloist, Sir. Leo Schultz, one of ih finest of tho talented body of cellists in tho orchestrn. Tho nttractionsof tho programme, 'ie sides thcsolo numbers, consist of Schu mann's sterling nnd favorite B Hat sym phony, the witching "Danso Slacabro" of Saint-Saens nnd three movements of Rubinstein's "Bal Costume." Sir. Schultz will play n violoncello concerto by Eckert, finely received in Boston. Sladamo Jahns will sing a Dcr Frcischvttz nria and songs with piano, which will introduce Sir.
