What a live Business Firm Thinks of
Office of Speaii & Videtto,
Washington, D. C, June 19, 1891.
Messrs. Souli and Ilcnsey, Proprietors Sunday
Gentlemen: We desire to add our testi
monial to that of the long list of business men
who have assured you In words of commenda
tion their estimate of the merits of The Sun
day Herald. Progressive, as a bright and
newsy reporter of personal and society hap
penings, a faithful recorder of events and
progress made by our various secret orders,
brimming full of the more important news of
the day, both local and foreign.
Unsurpassed by its local contemporariesln
its weekly review of real estate transactions,
private and public improvements, active and
prospective, and a list of advertising patrons
unequaled by anypaper of its size in this city.
We desire to assure you that our returns from
money expended in advertising in The Sun
day Herald are most satisfactory.
A proof of Tiie Herald's popularity amoug
business men is 6een upon its pages of well
Etyled, handsome display advertisements,
patronage of the leading business men of our
city. We wish TnE Herald success. Tours,
respectfully, Spear tfc Videtto,

Foraker's remarks at the Columbus Con
vention made it plain that his mouth did not
lose its grip during its recent prolonged vaca
tion. Some sensible people in both cities haye
come to the conclusion that St. Paul and
Minneapolis should lay aside their jealousies,
stop bickering and unite under one municipal
government. The name that is proposed for
the aggregation, however, is not a good one.
It is Federal City. Why not Minnepaul or
The mysterious sea-serpent which every
summer bobs up first at one summer resort,
then at another hundreds of miles away, has
not yet put in an appearance. Perhaps it has
been superseded this season by the American
tin-plate factory, which has been leading such
a will-o'-the-wisp existence in different cities
of the country all the spring.
Inspector General Dumont wisely takes
time by the foreloqk in issuing Instructions
to customs officers and steamboat inspectors
to prevent the overcrowding of excursion
steamers. The excursion season is now fully
open all over the country, but happily no ca
lamity has yet occurred. And there Is no
doubt whatever that disasters will be less
numerous if the officials are spurred on to do
their duty in time. Accidents can never be
so effectually prevented as before they occur.
Normally constituted men and women
don't like to be in a hole, but there was a hole
discovered in Edwards County, Tex., last
week into which a lurge proportion of the
population of this country would no doubt
have eladly crawled if they could get in.
At the bottom of it a mysterious lake was
found, whose waters were ice cold and the
rocks around the margin contained a big per
centage of silver. The hole is called the
"Devil's Sink Hole," and it will no doubt
become a favorite Texan summer resort.
Ir the contest about the Rock Creek Park
lands is kept up long enough the owners will
be almost certain to make out that they are
not offered enough for their property". While
the fight keeps the park project at a stand
EtiU, the growth of the city in that direction
goes steadily on and values are increasing
rapidly. The trouble is, however, that the
land6 selected for the park may become so
valuable that Congress will get frightened
and let the scheme die. That would be a very
deplorable ending of an admirable project.
The latest point raised by those who
ere opposed to the nomination of Mr. Cleve
land next year is that If the Democrats
elect a President then it will do little good
ur lees the same man can be re-eleoted In 1S96,
so that under his direction Democratic doc
trine may bo, made thoroughly effective
through national legislation and the adminis
tration of the executive departments. As tho
tinwrltteu law against allowing any man a
third term In tho White Ilouso would pre
vent Mr. Cleveland's re-election in case ho
was nominated and elected next year, tho
poirit sought to bo tnndc Is that It will not do
to make Mr. Clovcland the candidate iu 1S92.
This sort of reasonlne would seem to indicate
that the anti-Cleveland men are getting
pitiably hard up for argument.
Tin: Interior Department Is to spend $2,000
In putting In repair the prehistoric ruins In
tho Glla Klver Valley of Arizona. Tho name
of the architect who has drawn up tho plans
for the renovation of the ruins Is not an
nounced, but no doubt ho will fix up Case
Grande In fine shape, with all modern Im
provements, including hot and cold water on
every floor, electric lights and bolls, bay win
dows, and tiled roor. All ruins In this great
Republic should bo' kept lu first-class repair,
so as to present the slrongest contrast possible
to the dilapidated and moss-grown ruins of
tho effete monarchies of Europe.
Here Is fresh proof of the unwisdom prev
alent in labor organizations. In Rochester re
cently two labor leaders were convicted of
conspiracy In connection with a strike and
sent to prison. Now tho labor men are trying
to get tho manufacturers indicted simply be
cause the latter joined in an agreement to
blacklist their former employes who had tho
impudence to strike for what they foolishly
considered tbelr rights. The workingmon will
no doubt learn some day that laws are made
by most legislatures to protect wealth from
any disturbance In the process of making more
wealth nnd not to protect mere workingmon
In the vulgar functions of making a living for
themselves and their wives and babies.
Major McKinley has been nominated as tho
Republican candidate for Governor of Ohio on
a platform with which the Democrats ought
to be well satisfied. It makes the Issues clear
between the two parties. It declares for
high tariff, high taxes, tho fostering of special
interests at the expense of the whole body of
citizens and generally for a continuation nnd
intensification of the policy which has made the
Republican party tho natural ally of the great
moneyed Interests and estranged it more and
more from the hard-working masses. It is a
platform on which Major McKinley can com
fortably and honestly stand and amplify with
fervid enthusiasm the one idea which really
underlies ii. all and which he never tires of ex
poundingthe idea that the country can bo
made richer by taxation, and material pros
perity and social security increased by legis
lating so as to concentrate wealth in the
hands of the hundreds wbllo the mill
Ions are made peons If not paupers. The
Democrats can ask no more than that Mc
Kinley will conduct his campaign argumenta
tion on the lines of the speech he made before
the convention which nominated him. That
speech presents very clearly the high-protection
Republican doctrines at their very worst,
making a contrast with the Democratic doc
trines so striking that even voters who for
years have been blinded by partisanship to
their own interests will at last have their eyes
The Administration seems to be racking Its
brains to devise schemes by which the present
comparatively empty condition of the Treas
ury may be made less apparent to the country.
It Is announced that the form of Treasury
statement will be changed on the 1st of July,
so that some of the small amount of money
still left in the vaults and not now counted
among available assets by the Treasury book
keepers may be made to figure among the
available assets and thus avoid the unpleasant
duty which devolved on the officials one day
the past week of announcing a deficit. No
doubt the anxiety of the Treasury officials to
show a balance on the right side of the ledger
is commendable. The country is rich and the
Government will in some wayjmeet all its cur
rent obligations, vast as they have be
come through tho reckless prodigality of the
late billion-dollar Congress. An apparent de
ficit in the Treasury at this time can hardly
afTect tho creditor the Government. Still,
no doubt, the Government financiers are wise
In desiring to adopt changes In the form of
bookkeeping which will enable them to can
cel the devastation wrouebt by the billion
dollar Congress and show some sort of a sur
plus instead of a deficit. Even a teehuical
shortage in cash might have some slight dis
turbing effect on business, as it is pretty cer
tain to have on politics. Still the Republican
press should not affect to treat too lightly the
assertions that tho Treasury Is bankrupt. Of
course, there are millions of money in tho
Treasury more or less available to pay Gov
ernment indebtedness. This does not affect the
fact that millions on millions have been spent
to reduce the magnificent surplus left by the
Cleveland administration, so that a change in
the method of bookkeeping Is required to show
any spare cash at all. It is well enough to go
ahead and adopt a new stylo of Treasury state
ment, but that will not put the dissipated
millions back into the vaults, nor will It make
the couutry forget how they were spent.
Lieutenant Boteler's Successor.
It is understood that Lieutenant Boteler's
successor will be appointed this week. Thefour
sergeants from whom it is believed tho new
lieutenant will be chosen were at tho District
Buildings yesterday, and had an Informal talk
with the Commissioners. These officers were
Sergeants Boyle, of the First Precinct ; Bron
son, of the Sixth; McTaggart, of the Second,
and McCathran. of the Fifth. The last named
for a long time has been in charge of the sub
station at Unlontown. By right of seniority
he would be the lucky man, and by many it is
eald ho will obtain the position. Sergeant
Boyle Is a prominent candidate, and would
make an excellent lieutenant. He Is a strict
dieciplinarian, has an irreproachable record,
16 a man of tact and ability, and is in every
way fitted for the place,
"Faust Beer" Is pure.
TALK OF TIIE WEEK.
The rcmarknblo manner In which some peo
ple, principally young persons of the female
persuasion, Indulge in limitless gushlficntlon
over Miss Winston is a profound nnd unmiti
gated mystery to those who have not fallen un
der the spell of this buxom Scotch lassie Jean.
Tho ovation which Jeaunto was given at the
close of her engagement with tho Cnrlcton
troupe recently was almost grotesque.
Flowers In all sorts of deslgus, to tho value of
some hundred dollars, wcro carried to tho
footlights by n procession of" ushers and some
fair, but foolish, cnthusinsts themselves flung
their corsage bouquets on tho stnge. Tho
climax was reached when Jcaunlc enmo for
ward nnd made n little speech. Jcauulo Is
persecuted with attentions of this kind In
privnto ns well as In public, but that she
knows how to turn tho gushing enthusiasm of
her foolish admirers to tho best uses the follow
ing story will show. One day thrco worship
ful maidens called to see nuother lady mem
ber of tho Cnrlcton troupe. They were al
most breathless with pleasurable excitement,
for they had Jnst como from a call on Miss
Winston, who had been so deliclously lovely
nnd kind to them, they 6nld. Just think of
it 1 She had patted them on tho cheeks nnd
kissed them and called them her dears, and told
them all about her plans for tho future. She was
coming back to Washington nt the conclu
sion of her engagement in Milwnukee, nnd was
going to give n benefit and af terwnrd a recep
tion. Sho wnnted nil tho girls to come to her
benefit nnd send her bouquets tied with great
long ribbons of different colors, and with their
cards attached. Tho girls who sent her the long
est ribbons she would kuowloved her most,and
them she would invite to the reception after
the benefit. But the most delightful feature
of this reception, the three giddy gushers
explosively declared, was that Miss Winston
meant to let her guests help her sew all the
long ribbons together into portieres, which
sho would always keep ns souvenirs of her
Washington friends. Now wnsn't thnt just
too lovely for nnythlng? tho gushers de
manded to know of the lady whom they wero
calling on. Tho latter ndmitted wtth a smile
that it was, while tho. lady's husband, who
was in an adjoining room listening to the
flood of gush, slid through a convenient win
dow just in time to avoid choking to death
from suppression of the laugh. The next
time the lady on whom Miss Winston's ad
mirers called met Jeannie she told her of
their visit, and complimented her on tho in
genious way iu which she intended to enter
tain her friends at the coming reception.
Jeaunie smiled that ample, easy, good-natured
smile of hers, and pulUnr down the
lower lid of her right eye, simply said: "Don't
you worry about this child. Jeannie knows
It is astonishing what women in the good
ness of their hearts will do. It was on an
eastbound Avenue herdlc, and the three
yonng men in front were jokingly offering to
bribe the driver to whip up his horses, as they
had only four minutes to reach the Sixth
street station and catch their train. The vehi
cle was then at Ninth street, and the intend
ing travelers had not purchased their tickets.
The driver made a feint of whipping up his
horses, but the acceleration of speed was not
perceptible to the naked eye. Still the herdlc
went along at a good steady jog, while the
two ladles In the rear of tho herdlc smiled pleas
nntly at the efforts of the impatient young
men to make better time. As the vehicle
neared Seventh 6treet one of the ladles pre
pared to get out, but evidently disliked the
Idea of causing any delay which might pre
vent tho young men from catching their train.
So, without ringing the bell or calling the
driver's attention In any way, she arose and
jumped off to the avenue pavement. Tho
consequence was, of course, disastrous. She
lost her balance and went down In a heap in
the dust, soiling her nice white gown and
shaking herself up considerably. But she
was up again before the herdlc could stop or
any one como to her assistance, and hurried
up Seventh street trying hard to smile. It
was a very foolish action, but it would no
doubt gratify her to know that the young men
fully appreciated her motive and were just In
the nlclc of time to catch their train.
"No, it isn't as hot as this In Mississippi,"
said a resident of that State on one of the
sultry evenings of last week, in answer to a
suggestion made In response to his complaint
about the heat of Washington. "I give you
my word I have never felt the heat as much
In Mississippi as I do hear to-night. Although
Mississippi is some hundreds of miles further
south than Washington, where I live I can
always sleep comfortably at night. Of course
I live on the highest ground in the State, and
there we always get cool breezes from the
river and gulf after sundown. Our houses,
besides, aro summer houses, built with a view
to the freest possible circulation of the air at
night. There are brick walls running clear
through the houses both ways, and we never
think of closing a door or a window. Safe ?
Entirely so. I never sleep without a pistol
under my pillow, and every one knowB this.
Besides, if any one attempted to approach the
house he would bo torn to pieces by my big
dogs, which are a cross between bloodhound
and mastiff. Yes," tho Colonel continued,
"we always go armed in Mississippi. The re
volver is still considered a necessary part of a
man's attire. My boy, for instance, would no
more think of going to make a call without
his pUtol than wlthouthis boots. Ho wouldn't
think himself dressed if ho didn't put his pis
tol in his pocket."
"In fact," said a quizzical friend of the
Colonel's who had had some experience in
Mississippi himself, "It is regarded as a breach
of etiquette, calculated to lead to very em
barrassing situations, to go unarmed in Mis
sissippi. Every gentleman takes it for granted
that every other gentleman is armed, ready
to defend himself. When one gentleman
calls another a liar or applies offensive
epithets to him, the affronted man Instantly
pullB his pistol and blazes away at his in
sulter. Now, if tho latter, after being shot
full of holes, is discovered not to have been
armed, you can see how embarrassing
the situation is for the gentleman who did
the shooting. He is in the awkward dilemma
of having killed a man who could not defend
himself, a thing which no man of honor in
Mississippi willdo. So to save their friends
and neighbors, who may feel disDosed to kill
them, from such a possible emuarrassment,
every young gentleman in .Mississippi goes
armed, ovon to church and to weddings. Isn't
thnt so, Colonel V"
Tho Colonel laughed nt the sarcasm and re
sumed seriously, "It's n fact that no man lu
Mississippi can afford to be called a liar or al
low tho honor of his mother to be Impugiicd
wlthout8hootlng. In n restaurant here tho other
night two men got into n Avrangle nnd ono
cnlled tho other n llnr nnd applied n string of
the foulest epithets to him. I Immediately
stepped to one sldo to be out of range of tho
pistol balls that 1 felt sure would be flying
about In a lnlnuto. But no, tho two men cool
ed off lu a minute nnd wero taklug a drink to
gether before I wont out. If such a thing ns
thnt hnd occurred In Mississippi the man who
failed to resent tho Insult might just ns well
have packed up his belongings and left tho
community. No ono would have anything to
do with him further, except to heap fresh in
sults ou him."
