Tho nrtlclo Is worthy of care ful perusal and immcdlato action, and every provision is mado by tho authori ties for tho accomplishment of tho de sired purpose, if thoso most Interested will do their part In their own defense. Tho lnw providing ncalnst adulteration in food and drink is weak only in its lack of provision ugnlust tho adultera tion of liquors othor than malt. Dad whisky certainly does onough harm to warrant Us improvement by legal com pulsion. - Tub Senate, after eight months' more or less discussion on tho Tariff bill, camo to a voto yesterday without ono convert to uithor side. "Why didn't thoy tako tho voto long; ago nnd savo wear and tenr on their lungs? ,m i RErnKSKTATtVK Kiloore of Texas, in his speech Monday on tho City Fostofllco bill, said: "Hcsido, I take It that an ml. ditlonal clauso ought to bo put in this bill and all othors providing for public im provemonts In Washington. Thoro has never been, to my knowledge, a public improvement prosecuted in this city which did not wind up with a scandal moro or loss disgraceful. Thorc should bo a provision in tho bill, if this purchase is to bo mado, for tho appointment of a Congressional commlltco with authority to sit in vacation and to send for persons nnd papers to invcstlgato tho scandal which must inevitably grow out of this transaction." Wo nominate Mr. C.

Tho ladles should novor bo backward in rushing to arms whon tho men extend thorn, Tim outline of Conbul SownlPs testi mony boforo tho Soiuito Commlttoo on Foreign Itolatlons, printed in another column, reads llko a romanco, so incredible- seems the stntcmeut that Germany and GicntBrltaln entered into an agree ment to parcel about tho islands of tho Pacific botween them, wholly regardless of treaty stipulations. Tho history of tho supino non-action of our own State Depnttmcnt in tho matter whereby tho term American became a syaonym for faithlessness and cownrdlco Is equally diillcult to believe.

A Matter of Importance, to Itesldonts of tho District, Editoii Cuitic: Inclosed herewith plcaso find ten sets blauk forms to bo used by any ono who purchase any article of food or drugs in tho District of Columbia who thinks tho arllclo has been sold to him contrary to any provision of tho recent act ot Congress to provcut tho manufacture or sale of adulterated food or drugs lu tbo District; that Is to say, it ho suspects tho article cither to bo mixed, colored, stained or powdcrod with any ingre dient or material so as to render It Injurious to health, or to bo a manufactured nrtlclo composed in whole or lu part of diseased, decomposed, offensive or unclean animal or vcsctablo substance, or to bo not ot tho nature, substanco and quality ot tho article demanded by the purchaser, or to bn an adulterated article, i. &, from which a part has been sub tracted so as to affect injuriously its quality, substance or uature, tho person soiling tho altered article not making a disclosure ot tho alterntton. For distance, a'oarcnt may have boujjht for bis children a quart of an article' culled milk, lie may buspect that tho milk has been stained or colored with a poisonous mineral substance used to adulterate tbo annotto with which tho milk Is colored, or derived from tho copper or other vessels in which tho milk has been stored, or mixed with some antiseptic such as salicylic acid so as to render tho article inju rious to'bcaltli. Ho may also suspect that tho milk Is dis eased, having bocu obtained from cows suffer ing with tuberculosis or fever, or that tbo an imal or vegetable, oil with which tho cream has been supplanted Is ofTensivo or unclcau. Ho may also suspect that tho nrtlclo pur chased contains cottpn seed oil, i vegetable oil not ci com, an animal oil or that tho sugar and wator contained thcrclu ara directly de rived from added cauo sugar or glycerine and tho Potomac ltlvcr respectively, that is to say, not of tbo nature, substance and quality of mat ucmnnueci. Or, finally, the purchaser may buspect that tho cream vas subtracted from tho milk bo foro bo purchased it, thus seriously uffoctlng Its quality, substanco or nature, although tho pcison who sold him tho nrtlclo did not mako a disclosure to blm ot tbo abstraction. The caso of milk has been cited to Illustrate tho various provisions of tho law. As a mat ter of fact, however, milk Is seldom uoisoucd. tho adulterations consisting roaluly In tho re moval of tbo cream aud in tbo addition of water. Judging from tho oxpcrlcnce in England under tho "dale of Food and Drugs Act' on which the net under consideration is based, the great majority of adulterations will bo found to artso under section 4, which provides that no person shall sell any nrtlclo of food or drug which is not of tho nature, substanco and quality of tho article demanded by tho pur chaser. It Is expected, as a matter of course, that tbo Ilualth Otllccr of this District and tbo other ofllcers named in tho act will do all in their power to carry out Its provisions. It Is evident, howover. that Congress lu giving ovcry wiongcd citizen an opportunity to so cuio tho analysts of every nrtlclo suspected to liuve been sold to him contraiy to tho pro visions of tho net, realized that tho uvlls of adulterations were too groat and widespread to bo suppicmcd through tho oxertlono ot these ofllceis. Hut tho public at largo cau only ho ef fectually reached In theso dajs through iho public press. 1 have therefore taken tbo lib erty to send tho Inclosed blanks and a row copies of tho regulations and tho laws, and to express the hopo that you will take notice of this matter to tho oxtont even of acting as a distributor ot these applications to buch of your subscribers as may ask for them. - I would add that if you will consent to so act you will bo supplied by this ofllce with such additional blanks as you may need for tbo purpose. This ofllco realizes tho magnitude, of the evil which tbo law Is designed to remedy and will act with corresponding zeal In the matter, hoping that the appropriation ot $10,000 needed to procure ntcessary chemicals aud ap paratus other than that used for oleomargarine will be mado during tho present sestlou ot Congress.

Tho llcpubll cans havo organized tho Senate from top to bottom with tholr own mon. A hot light was conducted lu the Houato all day, Involving tho main feature of tbo gubernatorial contest, Tho Democrats Insisted that the ticnato should proceed to the IIouso At onno to pass upon tho election returns, Tho Republicans refused to do so unless a plcdgo wns given them that tho result would bo declared on the face of tho returns, as tho law provides. They were lu tbo mnjorlty, and, ot course, controlled tho matter. To-nlgbt there aro Indications that thoro may bo another long-extended dead-lock over this question.

Hovcral reasons were advanced for their informality, ono being that tho olllccrs of tho Delaware Legislature had slighted tho Governor and Secretary ot Stain by sending tholr certificate of olcctlon. Mr. Hlggins explained to Senator Edmunds that tho credentials were mada out In accord ance with nn old statute of Delaware, passed many years boforo the act ot Congress of 18011, regulating tho subject, nnd that tho Legisla tive officials believed they were acting stilctly in accordance with law, Deluwnro State O Alcorn. Tho ltopubhcan members of tho Delaware General Assembly have nominated candidates for State treasurer and auditor of accounts. For the first ofllco Charles II.

Tho Seuato and Houso committees ot tho Minnesota Legislature to Invcstlgato tbo charge of bribery In tho recent Senatorial cau cus were In session yesterday. Their meetings were strictly secret. There has been strong feeling that tbo Investigation Is a scheme to defeat tho nctlou ot tbo caucus, and that a combination of Democrats and bolting Repub licans would elect somo person not promi nently boforo tho Legislature as a candidate. The Houso had decided by resolution to voto for Senator, aud yesterday the matter came up. The Houso commlttco was not ready to report, and tho question was whether the Houso should voto now or await tho result of tho Investigation. A warm debate was aroused, it bolog held oa one sldo that voto was required at onco by tho Constitution, and on tbo other sido that tho law and right was for a postponement until tbo commlttco could report. A Decltlnn Agalust the lloyoott. A decision ot great Importance to all tho States was rendered yesterday at Cincinnati in Judge Buckwaltcr's court. N. & G. G. l'arker sued tho Bricklayers' Union ot that city and certain members ot It for damages for a boycott, Tho verdict was for tho plaintiff, and their damages wcro assessed at $3,700. Tho jury wasauutt throughout tholr deliber ation lu tbo opinion that tuo plaintiffs should recover. The question was as to tbo amount they wcro entitled to recover. On tho first ballot ono juror voted to fix tho damagos as low as $700,and ono Juror fixed them nt$lo,000. Fourteen ballots followed, during which tbo jury gradually camo together. The first count of the petition charged tho defendants with prluttug and distributing a circular, lu which it was stated that tho plain tiffs do inferior work as contractors for tho putting up ot buildings, and that they cm-. pioy "scaDs" ami uusKiuca worxmen. as io this charge the court applied the familiar law ot libel.
