We believe that In her pending con troversy with tier managers, the tuneful and shapely Marlon Manota will have the sympathy of all thoughtful people. Whether she can carry her point nnd ifleetnally prevent the photographing cf her extremely symmetrical tights U ,ulte another matter-, but that she lint a right to protest against it ami that her protest might to protect her, we think rnott men will concede. The view taken by the mannseinent does not, In our opinion, uomcmi the totality of force, lkcaute Miss Manola )- under contract to play with De Wolf Hopper' ComjMiiy dm lug. a given time mil to appear upon tbe stage In light whenever the character assigned her i alls for that sort of costume, it does not follow that her managers have tbe right to trade upon photographs of her In those costumes. To appear upon the Mag behind the foot-Hglm amltWt the Klamor of the scenery, the iliiwllng lights, the bewildering accessories of form awl sound and color. Is very dif ferent from appearing In a photograph set up In a show-window. In one case you ate merely an Integer in an segre gation, ose figure In a multitude, part of a scene. Iu the other you are alone, the scene Itself. It is not il Illicit It to understand that a woman with some delicacy of feeling might bring herself to endure the appearance on the stage, waking herself a constituent of the crowd, and jet sbriuk from the glaring Isolation of a photograph and from the humiliation of having tbe fueutmiU of her person treated ae merchandise. We are very glad to tee that a jw. llinlaary Injunction has been granted by one of the New York courts In Mis JIaacU's favor. The principle cannot be too soon established that actresses, ia signing contracts for twofeatoaal ftrvke, retain some claims to their per sonal dignity which tbe managers are bound to respect A COLORADO DANIBL.

Punk A Wagualls, the pub lishing pirates wbo steal the nneycloiHedla Hritaunlca for John Wana maker to sell, have written a violent and abusive letter to tbe editor, which the 1W published In Its edition of Tuesday. After publishing the letter, however, tbe editor has a few re marks to wake on ItU own account, from which the follovstug I an extract: "What concerns us Is our reasons for singling you and Wanatuakw out above other booh pirates for special reprobatuni. These reasons are, as regards Wanamaker, that he is tb Cabinet oMcer of a great nation, aad tbe owner ami conductor of a very public Kiiitda) -school, ami an extremely prominent ami much-advertised professor of religion. A s regards )ou, that youre a doctor of divinity and a minister of the Ootpel, and tbe conductor of one or more religious periodical. As regards you both, that you bare attacked a large mass of property with more publicity, ami have therefore made jour offense more useful for doctrine, for reproof, ami for lastrue lion Iu rlghteousaess, than any of your piratical predecessor.

SORRY FOR HARRISON. ti "suixostnart ismnmw FOR HIM AT GAPS MAT P6tf. The t,w and the t'nttnre t)errtr Itsmi the Unwritten CWe Here- WttWre llffswrVM, JFvem .Vw Trt sin (to-ttof), To-Jnrrrnw the Jefaey cot will Ijc th scene of an unpleasant frctcle. The family of the IrtMeitt of the United State, even to the jecowfl attd third geweratlrm, will more Ifrto a -sMe cottage which they have neither purchased nor hired for the summer. This establishment Is, In plain words, an eleemosynary institution. Certain gentlemen have subscribed to pay for the land, the building, and the interior furnishings, even to the brass wnna makers In the billiard room. On the part of some of the subscribers the gift Is a matter of disinterested although mistaken charity. Other contributors to the fund, as there is reason to appre hend, were Inspired by motives not quite so unselfish. There is probably no law in the He vised Statutes under which General Harrison could be punished for THIS UteORACRFTTI, rttOCSRDIXfl. Sections 5500 ami and 5501 come as near to his case, perhaps, as any. These sections contain the following pro vision: Kvery officer of the United States, and every person acting for or on behalf of the t'nlted States, In any official capacity un der or by virtue of the authority of any de partment or office of the uovernment thereof, who aeks, accepts, or receives any money, or any contract, promise, under taking, obligation, gratuity, or security for the laj men t of money, or for tbe delivery or conveyance of anything of value, with Intent to have hi decision or action on any question, matter, cause, or proceeding which may at any time be pending, or which may be by law brought before Iilm In h! official capacity, or lu his place of trust or profit, Influenced thereby shall be punished by a line not more than three times the amount ashed, accepted, or received, and by Imprisonment not more than three years. Wo suppose that an attempt to pun ish General Harrison under sections 5500 and 5501 of tho Ilevlsed Statutes could be met successfully with a tech nical defense on those grounds: 1. The nominal receiver of the gra tuity Is not General Harrison, but Gen eral Harrison's wife, and she Is notnn olftccr of the United States. On the other band, It might ba shown that this Is a mere evasion, since General Harri son is the head of the family which now possesses Hit cottngc at Cape .May Point, and it has been fitted up WITH SfKClAl. KKrKIlBNCK TO 1114 OC cri'AKCY. The billiard tabic In the great billiard room stul the brass wanamnkers tlt.it adorn that apartment were certainly not designed for the use of Mrs Harri son or of llaby ilelvee. 2. Tho cottago Is not conveyed with Inttrttohavo General Hanison's de cision or action Influenced In any qucttlun which may come before him In hlsotilclal cnpaclty. If that defense were raised, it might be exceedingly dllBcuItto prove the contrarv. Whera disinterested motives are loudly pro claimed, and, perhaps, where tho con sideration oxpected by the donor Is a matter of the Indellnlto future, a con viction would bo very bard to procure. And yot, at the samo time, nobody can doubt that every subscriber to the HAltlSON M'KSK rtlKSIl-AIH FUND,' with the possible exception of Mr. George Washington Child and Mr. Anthony Joseph Drexul, expects to ob tain sooner nr later, through the In fluence of General Harrison's oltlclal station, a return In some shape for his Investment. rtich a lino of defense might be sutll cient to save Genetal Harrison from a fine of three times the value of the Cape Slay Toint cottage, and likewise fr.un Imprisonment for tbeprescrlbed term of not more than three years. We do not think the President could be convicted under the statute quoted above, or under any other statute. We have no idea that he will ever be prosecuted In the United States courts. He U on the safe side of the law concerning bribery. Nevertheless there Is another and un written law which prohibits Presidents while In office from accepting gratuities oj any sort, no matter now ingeniously they may be disguised. It Is based on well defined principles of public morals, as well as on considerations of personal self-respect, which no sensitive intelli gence can fall to recognUe. Most of the men who have preceded General Harrison In the olHce of President have understood this unwritten law of honor, and have scrupulously obeyed It, Whenever the law has been violated bv a President in office, that President lia's disgraced himself and bis office, ami the cation which eleeted him.

A CatTrc reporter, white In cmireWa tloti mst etetting with a couple of citi zens of the District, had hh attention directed to a row of sycamore trees on the east side of Eleventh street, between G sod II northwest, whose exact sire and symmetrical shape has often been commented upon by persons passing along that thorotighfare. Those trees, several years ago," said one of the gentlemen, "were supposed to be like the Biblical rmrren fig tree no good. Instead, however, of cutting Ihcm down, men were sent to carefully trim them, and after considerable watching they seemed to take an en tirely new growth, ami to day there is not a mote beautiful row of trees In the city." Pointing to the largest of the trees near H street, the other gentremau said- 'That tree has a history. It stood for years In front of an ohl frame house rtcmplfd by a German, who took a great Interest In the tree. He had no hydrant In Ills yard ami always when golnst for water, If there was anv left over In the bucket from a previous visit to the pump, he would throw It on that tree. He also frequently whitewashed It, and that Is why It Is so much larger than tbe others. "Oh, yes, I have seen trees almost In the centre of some of the sidewalks In Washington." replied the reporter to a question ashed him. "The reason of that Is," said the older cltlren, "the curb line of the pave ment was just about there forty yean ago. Then trees were standing in the middle of Pennsylvania avenue. AVflshlngton can beat the world for trees, and 7,000 more of them will be planted upon the newly extended streets of tho city." A BRILLIANT WEDDING.

Ho came ovor from New York to confer with Secretary McGtilre upon matters of Importance to the Fed eistJon. "All over tho country," ho said, "tho prospects of success are favorable and our gain havu been Immense. In Mom. phis, Tenn., the plasterers and lathers organized In April and In May they got their eight-hour day, thus winning tho llrst victory In tho btate. "In regard to the charge that tho as sumblles arc leaving tho Fodoratlou I can say that I know of no organization which has done so or intends to do so, but I know of Instances where the If nights of Labor assemblies hove with drawn from their order and have be come connected with the Federation. "In a period of seven weeks and four days the carpenters alone have char tered ninety-six new local assemblies, and during the past three months the cigar-makers have organised thirty new assemblies, the Amalgamated Associa tion of Iron and Steel Workers seventy and the Iron Moulders twenty-two. In New York the cigar-makers had pre vious to May 1 only 1,500 members; now they have 7.000. In Louisville the carpenters have just won eight hours a day, and In regard to their membership thty had previous to May 1 only forty five and now there are 1,500 on the rolls. I am agreeably surprised at the action of the men In Philadelphia. They are steadfast In their determination to win, and 1 do not doubt that victory will crown their efforts," GeorsU'a Handsome Uoveruor. .V York UtUt in VlitcUmaU lH'tuu,i.

Last week two district judges it nderetl contrary dct isions on holding that an original package Is an unbroken case, jnsl as It Is received from the con signor; the other that any sub division of a case properly sealed, with contents intact, would fulfill the requirements of the law.

Yestertlsv Judge Ravanagh nf the Polk County District Court, In the case of the State vs. Chambers, overruled this Supreme Conrt decision. Cham hers imported two cases, one containing a dozen bottles, the other a keg filled with liquor. Chambers admitted he had drawn off the liquor from the keg Into quart bottles.
