It Is n ense where mere words fall. A WORD OF ADVICE. The Coxejltes must behave them selves If they expect to be welcomed by the society people of Washington nnd to hne the courtesies of the capital ex tended to them. In Montana some of them broke Into a Northern Pacific round-houfm lust Monday night, seized nu engine ami train, manned them from former rail road employees In their own ranks nnd started Hast, running nt the rate of forty miles nn hour. Considering that they were Ignorunt of the road's time schedule, this was rather n risky busi ness to others besides themselves. Over In Jersey City a division of the grnnd nrmy wns not rjulto ns successful with Its railroad experience as lln comrades In Montana. More than n hundred of them gathered at the Penn sjlvnnln Knllnnd Company's freight nid at West Und early yesterday morn ing and boarded nn empty freight train that wns to start south nt 6 o'clock The chief gntemnu shrewdly tele graphed to the Jersey City police to be In readiness tn forte; waited until nil the uninvited passengers were In the freight cnrn, then locked the doors nnd started with bis load for the city, in stead of heading south. When the 'nrmy" saw where they were going they mnnnrred with some dllllculty to break open the doors, Jumped out nt the risk of life nnd limb, and scnttered for parts unknown. Washington society, owing to the presence of Scnulorti nnd Congressmen, Is very mixed, but It cannot stand such doings ns those. The Coxejltes must learn to behave themselves If they ex pect to be welcome nt the National cap ital. Especially must they refrain from stealing rallionds. The Washington people want to reserve that business for themselves. THE ATTEMPT AT ARSON. Tho nttempt to set fire to the tenement-house In Kast llrnndwny while more thnn one hundred human beings were sleeping In supposed safety In the building seems to have been marked by peculiar ntroclty. In the apartments oc cupied by Sllverberg, the alleged princi pal In the crime, which were on the ground floor of the building, n second flooring had been laid, and the fcpnee be tween that nnd the orlglml flooring filled with camphor. In the upper or false flooring, holes hnd been bored, which hnd nlsn been filled with camphor, so that the flames would have burned rap Idly nnd tleicely all over the store nnd concealed the fact that the Insured stock had been previously removed The fire, et in the cellar underneath, nnd liber ally fed with wood and shavings thor oughly drenched with kerosene, would have almost Instantly burned through this deadly flooring. All exit bv the stilrs would have been cut off before the (alarm cjuld hive been given nnd the consequeni e would Inevitably have beerj a horrible loss of life. And all this for greed of money. The two accused accomplices nre In Jill. The alhged principal, Sllverberg, Is still at large. It would ho an eternal disgrace to tho city If he should escape tint the elllclency and energy of our police force should make that un Impossibility. W036E AND WOIISE. Of course, the Carnegie Company Is entitled to n fair Investigation. Hut If the charges alleged agaltiHt them and thtlr supposed lucompllce-i In urmor llate frauds nre true, nn penalty tint cm be Imposed upon them ivlli be too severe. It Is now nsserted that t'ie piiijcctllen used in the test of tin1 p'ates wore by c jlltisl in made brittle, ao that the Cnr negle pin ten might rccm unusually s'.Uintf, while othi r defictlve plates were suppliei which could not stand the tent Tin deeper the Inrjuliv iTues the more star'Mng are the allegations of n bive Hill trc.T'oiidble conspiracy to defraud t!v Government, nnd that bv men upon whom espi elat favors and protectlm have been lavished, both by the Govern ment and the courts It Is neeessarv that this inontioiii pcnndnl should be sifted to the iry foundation. THE PRIKCE Or THE PULLMAN CAR. Tour thousand cniploees of the l'ull ninn Palate Car Compnny, nt Pullmnn, 111., are going to strike on May 1, There nre no palace car porters nmoug these malcontetitK. The porters could uffotd to quit woik and loaf around for a few ears, because they mo all men ot fabulous wealth, but they hive no In tention of "going out," nnd will con line themselves to stumbling nbout the hard times nnd the presence now of dimes between passengers' lingers where heretofore the desirable und delectable qu-vrler lurked. This would be a road seisun for 1'nll. Jills wouiu no a gooa seison ror run man porters to strike, not of the travel llns public, as Is their custom, but of work. They would then have time to go to Washington In u body to protest against the Income tax, which will nffect them more terlously than anv other class of coupon-cutters, nnd also to se about geltluif a bill passed to lunke It a Stati's prison offense to i;le a I'ullnrin manual!' a smaller tip than a qunitcr and i capital offense not to give him ail) thing at nil. Itiillrund passeiigets have never yet gone uu strike, and the) probably never will, but If the Pullman porters were to go on strike and stay on strike there would be some rousing rejoicing anion1; the people of this laud who ride In sleiplug cars Then folks could travel wlthiut feeling they were undir abject obligation to tho gentleman of tin. ttlilsl. liranni fur thi tirtt llrire nf rl.l. me wnisu uroom lor me privilege or ru ing In his private eai. And the) wouldn't expect a train robbery at the end of every ilde, either. "Tho World" this morning presented a new blanch of the armor-plat fraud dls t losures Uf course, tho setting up of doubtfjl plates to be tested required, for thu complete success of the Imposition, the furnishing of bad shells for use In tho process ot testlns. Ho the charge that brittle balls were propelled from faulty cartridges by weakened powder cannot bo said to come ns an overwhelming Bur prise. The Investigation of the subject now going on under direction of the Navy Department may, however, lead to over whelming results. Yon rend ttio livening World!

Calvo Gets a New Companion to Interpret Fighting Talk. Mine. Lozcrnn Slnilo III by tho Recent "Serai)." Mme. I'mma Kames-Htorey has sent out cards for "nn afternoon." They nre dnted Saturday, April IS, IS'jJ The hours nre 4 to 7, nnd tho place Sherry's ballroom. Am Mme, lvalues Is In mourning, which caused her to "regret" most of the In vitations she received from New York, IJoston, Hrooklvn, Chicago nnd St. I.ouIb friends, the cards naturally provoke talk. All of New York knows thnt the lovely songstress has had "a scrap" with the glorious, brilliant, fiery Calve Thnt a new Mlch.i'1.1 Is to sin,? in "Carmen" this nfternow, the announcement of the change being made ns long ago as Sat urday, would Indicate that the gentle Haines did not have the hctet of the halr pulllng. There are two explanations for the re ception. One version Is thnt the hostess wishes to tell her mum rails fashionable friends all about It, the other is Hint sho wishes to show' her hated rival how she Btaiulri soclallv Ah the song-bird with the flashing black eyes sails nwnv on Saturday af ternoon, to rehearse- the new opeia Mas senet has written for her, the affair will lose some of us Jo)H. Mi'llia, Calve and Nonllcn comprise what Is known as the lively trio. Nordlca would not say a word about nn) thing the ii-ceptlon, the hnlr-pull-lng or the warblers. If she received cards for the Sherry Saturday aftcr nenin. she hail her reasons for keeping the fact a becret. Melbd would not talk either. "I have nothing to say about the llami's-Calve quarrel or the Knmes Storey society affair," she said Scalchl was In bed, under u mountain of eiderdown, nursing a cold. She had promised to slug ut the Mine, l.a blache conceit last evening, and, ns her companion said, "there she wns, up lo her chin In llaxse'ed and down." "No, .Mine. Sonic hi did not receive cauls," she continued. "I remember one day In London heurlng laime s tell Mme Sculchl about e-alllng on her In the Tremont House, Boston. Introducing herself as one of the choristers, and us u great favor asking Scalchl for an upliilon of her voice. Scalchl had lls teneil to hundreds of Hoston girls In her hotel pallor, and could not recall the Incident, but Karnes wns In fine splrttH then. In love with the whole world, nt the very threshold of sue'cess, nnxlous to pleuse, nnd she elld pleuse without effort, und she took the trouble to go over every iletnll of the visit, repeating the lonversntlnn thnt pnssed between them and describing Scnlchl's dress nnd surroundings. Now she Is Mme Storey, the glorious prima elonnn, and I doubt If she would lemember the In cident even Success, you know, docs play such tricks with the memory. "f'nmes has been licensee! of display ing mote hauteur In the company than Pattl. She may freeze some people In the compnny, but she Is not cordial when she meets Senlchl. Bhe alwavs Hays 'bon Jour,' und often 'how do you do7' "Oh, Senlchl Is nn artist. She has the greatent admiration for Karnes's tulent and beauty." When Calve came to New York It Is related that she had a Polish ludy, Mme. Isabel I.ozernn, for her compan ion. Now she has a new companion. Mme. Ixizernn Is 111 nt IS East Fifty eighth street, nnd waiting to sail. That squabble wns too much for her She was Calve-'s Interpreter. When Calve said that she would slap Karnes s face for talking about her. It was the painful duty of Mme. I.ozeran 'o state the fact In definite Kngllsh, nn Calve's opinion of Karnes's Kreneh Is not cxnlted wn.i.ir:." There nre several luughs In "Willie," Charles Klein's three-net farcical com edy, now at the llijou. It Is not possi ble to sit through the entire perform ance, absolutely unsmiling!'. Thnt Is something, for there nie so many pro ductions that nrouse nn emotions at nil, that can be endured In it soil of thleki ni'.imy apathy. "Willie" hns funny nioinents, nnd It Is fnlily well written, although nomo ot ItH humor belongs to furce-eomesly (fnice-comedv of "A Par lor Matin" M)le), rather thnn to fnrcl tnl oomtsly, puch ns "Charley's Aunt." The patrons of the IllJou, however, ns long iih they laugh, will not care whither "Willie" Is farce-comedy or fin leal comedy The author of this play Is persistent lather than Ingenious. He harps on old chords, and does not struggle for new lines, nnd the old ones linve been touched l'n SO often In this si vie nt en. tertnlninent. "Willie-" Is built upon n good old theme. The hero, who has be-en Jilted, or who thinks he has which Is Just as good has promised to marry n woman whom he has never sen. He goes to the house, llndH bis original fiancee there, and also sees the old girl who Is willing to become his. Itather than fulfil his promise he passes him self off as somebody else, gets tangled up in nil sorts of complications, some ot which arise fiom the fact that seime liody else urrlves In propria persona, nnd then straightens everything out In time for the final curtain. The farce Is delltrhtfllllv shnrt nn.l It ine rnrce is ueiigntruuy short, nnd It Is acted very quickly. It therefore serves for nn evening's plensnnt enter tainment It ennnot be compared with "Incoj," Mr Dickson's former fnrco, In which he was so eminently successful. Its nutlior, however, may feel legltl mitely pleased with hlnipelf, for n farce of any kind Is not nn easy thing to write, and this goes smoothly and diags onlv occasionally, Mr Dlil.son, ns Willie, does not seem to thoioughl) enjoy the put. He is a clover )oung actor, and his methods ale nil blghlv commendable The compan.v Is n good one Miss Whlll), ns a mur-riage-s-tklng spinster. Is extremely good, nnd Kd J.

Charge of Neglecting Nana Gil moro Was Not Pressed. Harlem's Sensational Tangle Quietly Smothered in Court. Little Nana Gllmoro Was Restored to Her 1'nrents. Mrs. Kr.te Bird, wife of Clinton W. Illrd, proprietor of the Wlnthrop Hotel, at One Hundred nnd Twenty-fifth street nnd Seventh avenue, who was found In Christian Ilorst's saloon, nt One Hundred and Sixteenth street nnd Park avenue, Monday ufternonn under peculiar cir cumstances was again nrrnlgned In Har lem Police Court this morning. When arrested In the saloon Mrs. Bird had with her the scvcn-ycnr-old daugh ter of Mrs. George Gllmore, of 439 Pleasant avenue. Arthur Honynge, a stenographer, of 11C West One Hundred nnd Twenty-second street, was with Mrs. Bird nt the time. About 9 o'clock this morning Mr. and Mrs. Ulrd drove In n cab to the Court House, nnd went nt once to Lawyer John C. Munzliiger's ofllcc on the oppo site side of the street. A half hour later Mr. und Mrs. Hlrd, accompanied by Mrs. Gllmore nnd the girl Nana, en tered the court-room. The women took re-ur seats, while Mr. Illrd wns here and there, confeirlng with his lawyer and talking mysteriously with City Mar shal Holnhan, who seemed to be deeply Interested In the proceedings. Mr. Bird alto nppronched Agent Mulli gan, of the Gerry Society, nnd npologlzd to the latter far calling him a liar on the stand yesterday, when Agent Mulli gan had said that Mrs. Hlrd ud been in ilorst's saloon over twenty-four hours The case was not called until nearly nil other business had been disposed of. As the nnme given by her yesterday a.is Helm Gllmore. Mrs. Hlrd was nr rnlgned under that nnme this morning. When "Helen Gllmore" wns called by the clerk both women stepped before the Judge. Mrs. Bird Is thirty years old, and his pleasant features. She had left her dia monds at home, but was stylishly-dressed In a tan-colored tailor-made suit. A jaunty 'urban Immunized with her blonde hair. She presentel a much Im proved appearance ove." yesterday, but was exceedingly nervous as she faced the Court. "What shnll I do with you?" asked Justice Welde. Her only answer was a copious flow of tears. "You are charged with Intoxication: the Society does not want to press the charge of neglect of the child or I would have to condemn you still more," added the Justice.

In Summer a load of It dumped In a clean spot In the backyard will amuse the little ones for hours each day. They love to shovel It, build miniature forts, make gardens, with grass or plunts, nnd dig wells. Washed sand Is as clehn an sawdust, and a child can play In It In Its white frocks und not soil Its clothes. For Winter playing a bushel of sand can be kept Just outside the door. A shallow box of a few Inches In depth nnd two or three feet square can easily be made. Spread a lot of newspapers on the floor; set the box In the middle, fill It with sand and turn the children loose. Teach them not to get off the newspapers with It, and they will play all day In it and not litter the house half as much as though they had cut paper or scattered toys. KoodlcN.

Speaking of the Ue Ilcszkes, Nordlca said to an "Even ing World" reporter: "No soprano can help doing her best with such tenor and a basso. Those brothers are gentle men first nnd artists afterwards. I never sang with a tenor who so persist ently subordinated himself to the women on the stage." Melba, Eames, Scalchl, Arnoldson nnd Baurmelster voiced the same opinion. When Calve was asked If it wero not a triumph for "Carmen" to have a tenor like Jean de Reszke, she replied, through her travelling com panion: "It would be uncomplimentary to the other tenors In the company for me to say so."
