The Bias office Is oonnected with tne Telepboas Kxchanra Advertisements. orders for tie paper by mall and otherwise, newt, or any information or basin en can be sent day or nl>rbt, free of chanrt. Th# authorities,?coL Casey or whoever may be responsible?should put a stop to th? vandalism perpetrated by the people who are erecting stands along Pennsylvania avenue tor Inauguration day. All the public parks fronting on the avenue, from 15th street down, lnclullng even the Botanical garden, have been given up to the despoller, and the tre<es and shrubs In them are being mutilated and crushed out of shape, and probably out of life, by the erec Jon of stand.-'. When the limbs of a tree or the top of an evtrgreen interfere with the construction of tin se stands they are ruthle- ,ly lopped off or crushed down. The large shade trees along tfc" curbing in front of the reservation mmedlately west of 7th street hive been cat > own. the reason assigned being that a better v arlety is to be planted in their stead. Ii the tirst place it Is singular that the necessity for a tew varlety of shade trees was never discovered iu.ll ju^t at this time, wh?-n the old veterans vho nave after years of care attained thefr growth, obtruded themselves between the stand a: d the A .enue, thus obstructing the view, it will require tlfteen or twenty years tor the newly planted trees to attain the size of those that have been cut down. It Is stated, upon the- authority ot purchasers, that the Ilr3t rows In the stand between Ttli and ><tb streets comca.ia J 92 5c for each seat since the removal of the trees; ;ue seats in the middle rows bring one dollar each, and those In the rear flfcy ceats each. There Is universal complaint at the deaecratlon of the reservations, which would be condt mnod under any circumstances but, eaptdaily when the despoiling work goes on for 1 he pre nt of a few Individuals. All doubts as to the brilliant Buecess of the inauguration reception and ball were set'led by the experimental lighting of the Museum building Saturday night. It was tho universal remark that if a building nad been especially planned for the purpose It could not have been more adir irably adapted for a grand ball and reception room. Vast as Is the room,covering about three acres, it was demonstrated that the heating arrar cements are ample to comfortably warm It, however cold the weather may be. There is no danger, therefore, of guests suffering any of the frigid discomforts experienced at the inauguration bail eight years ago. The shape of the room affords opportunity for a large crowd to circulate freely without any risk of a jam, as was shown by the fact that four or live thousand people on Saturday night had aburidant elbow room while occupying Out a small proportion of the space. It is estimated that four hundred sets of dancers could be n.ade up at one time in the hall if all the spac?was used in this way. When brilliantly ltt tip and decorated, and filled with a welldressed assemblage the display Friday night will be worth seeing. The Boers routed the British forces in the Transvaal, Saturday night, killing <;en. t'olley, the commanding general, and many other British ofUeers of rank and distinction. Tne victory was as complete and sweeping for the Bcera as the defeat was disastrous and destructive to the British. The Boers made the attack, and fought with such desperation that they carried the entrenched position of god. colley in spite of the superior arms of the British. The latter were pursued in their letreat by the victorious Boers and the (light lecame a stampede. It is evident now that the Inhabitants ot the Transvaal are united In their determination to defend their homes to the very death against British a.-gresslon and interference. The reports persistently sent out rorn British sources that a large element of che Boers were anxious for English rule are pparently untrue, and this false information ha3 been sent broadcast for the purpose of deceiving the public mind. But all lovers of freedom will rejoice in the substantial evidence j the Boers have furnished of their ability to J I '.otect tnemselves. A people who have enjoyed ; freedom and who appreciate its blessings will , tot be conquered. Great Britain has beat j taught that lessen before, and t^e sharp defeat of their feces now Impresses the tact once aga'n. sr. I.ouls now has a fine opportunity to come down hard upon Its rival, Chicago, and the occasion Is being worked for all It is worth. Chicago has appealed for outside help to enable her people to pay the expenses of the national republican convention last summer. The begging appeal recites that " the liberality of her (Chicago's) own citizens has been taxed : to the uttermost, and atlll there are unpaid ! bills." In order to secure the convention. | Chicago made the most liberal promises. Her j representatives guaranteed every dollar of > expense, and the hotels were pledged to furnish the ordinary accommodations at ! regular rates. Thousands of those who attended the convention complained of the , exorbitant rates charged by the hotels, and, j in fact, by all classes and kinds ot dealers for j everything the visitors required, it was supposed that Chicago realized an encr mous profit out of the convention. It is not likely that the appeal for contributions will be responded to to any considerable extent. The cabinet gueascrs seem to be as billy j demoralized a3 the weatner prophet Vennnor i when his promised thaws all turned out freezes. Aftei all the elaborate slates they have con- 1 strutted. they only profess now to know that Blaine will have the state department, and that they don't know "certain sure." It is , still contended that judge Folger was offered j something and declined. As it is not believed he would decline so big a thin.: a^the Treasury i^ecrefary-bip, the j'resumption is that the 1 effer refused was tne Attorney Generalship. < reeee is apparently in earnest in her prep\- ! rations for war a^: tinst Turkey. The Porte i alleges that Turkey does not want war and ! ! iak's conciliatory suggestions, but Greece j sis?3tliat this Is a policy of sham and de- ; pllon, which has for its object only delay. ie Turk la profuse in his promises, b at man- j :s to avoid .my substantial conc esalons. The j :h or next month, the birthday ot the Greek I rg. is now settled upon as the day fur 1 i'. opening ot hostilities, and It will, from all ; t pearancee, require something more solid- 1 th-in a promise from Turkey to postpone the lit le difficulty.
