THE WOLCOTS OF DENVER.
Something About the Young Man who
will Succeed Senator Boweo.
From th? New Tork Star.
Col. John Arkins. the proprietor of the Den
ver ytv*. was here upon a lengthy visit until
a few days ago. and during that time he told
several interesting things about Colorado's new
Senator. Ed. O. Wolcot.
'"Although Wolcot'a law practice is worth at
least $50,000 a year, he never has been able to
save any money." said CoL Arkins. "If he had
a million he would run through it in no time.
He has not the least ides of the value of money.
His brother Henry, who is also s great power
in Colorado politics, is a millionaire, and. while
very liberal, does not believe in wasting money.
He always has his pocket-book open to E<1,
who is by several vears the younger of the two.
I have known Ea Wolcot to go off on a trip
with 910.000. and return without a cent. He
would go ta his brother snd say, 'Well. Henry,
I am broke; let me have 95.000.' Henry never
refused him, but he would begin to lecture the
young man about his extravagance. 'Now you
ar* only wasting words, for it is my nature to
ba sxtravsgsnt. and you don't expect me to
ehaage my nature.' Ed will say, and Henry will
not utter another word.
"Both the brothers sre bachelors, and they
keep house together. Their affection for one
another is simply besntiful. Ed is certainly a
prince of gooa fellows. Now. to show wbat
sort of s person he is, I will tell you how he
treated his old enemy ex-Congressman Jim
Belford. who used to be the humorous mem
ber of the lower house of Congress. When
Belford was away up in politics he always
looght the Wolcot boys bitterly. Now he is
down, without money or political power, and
a short time ago Ed sent for him ana presented
him with his check for a good round sum.
Belford could be of no use to Wolcot. as the
legislature bad been elected and Belford had
been downed in his own county.
"A few years ago Louis James was playing
la Besver as leading msn to Lawrence Barrett,
and they had a disagreement. James, who is
a college friend of Ed Wolcot, told him sbout
his trouble. Ed advised James to leave Bar
rett. 'You should be a star yourself,' said
Wolcot. 'That would take a great deal of mon
ey, and that is something I am badly in want of.'
replied James. Ed asked how much it would
a tare to establish him as a star, and James
1 that depended on circumstances. 'Well,'
said Wolcot. 'Henry snd I will back you, and
you can draw on us whenever you want
money.' As a result, James is a successful
?tar to-day."
Reginald Young (who has been very atten
tive luring the evening): '*1 wonder Miss
Mabel, if you would consider me impertinent
should I ask you the old. old question/"
Miss Mabel (greatly agitated): "Oh Reginald!
?this is so sudden?I?I?yes, I will listen to
you Reginald.''
Reginald: "Well, then, have you read 'Robert

SENATOR STANFORD'S POINTS.
How He Is Fighting in the Cloak-Room
for Protection fop Fruit.
Senator Stanford may not be an orator but
?tie has convincing way* about him that have
upset more than one of the eloquent tariff ex
pert* who hare (tumbled up against him oa
questions in which the Pacific coast ia inter
ested. It ia rarely indeed that the great Cali
fornia millionaire make* any remarks before
the Senate, and a *et speech from hi* lip*
would be the surprise of the session. But the
Senator i* a good deal le*s of an ornamental
legislator than some of hi* more petentious
fellow Senators. He ia a worker; a scientific
worker, who make* every stroke tell; a calcu
lating dealer in cold fact*, who knock* ont hi*
theoretical and argumetative opponent every
time. Some of the Senator'* methods are being
fiut into practice, to the discomfiture of repub
icans and dcmocrata alike. The republican
tariff bill, now being discussed in the Senate,
puts fruit on the free list, and to thia the
majority of the democrata agree, Mr. Call and
Mr. Pasco. of Florida, being in a diminutive
majority on the fruit question.
M. HTlSrORD'S CLINCHING ABOUXENTfl.
On this free fruit proposition Senator Stan
ford has had something to aay, but hia remarks
have neither been noisy nor lengthy. He haa
done more than, any orator could do. and he
has done it very quietly. Day after day sees
in the republican cloak-room of the Senate a
sample or a number of samples of California
fruit products. The sample which was there
yesterday differs entirely from that which ia
on exhibition to-day. On one occasion it may
be a box of Fresno raisins, and the Senators
walk in and help themselves to handfuls of the
delicious fruit. At another time it will be a
basket of Fresno figs, finer often than any figs
the Senators ever saw before. Then it will be
Riverside oranges, large and luscious,
and the arrival of a dox of the great
yollow beauties is whispered around
the chamber until every Senator who knows
the quality of "Stanford's oranges" has buried
his lips in their sweet, juicy pulp. Even the
Floriua Senators temporarily forswear their
allegiance to the great staple 01 their state and
enjov the California article. Prunes and grape*
are frequently to be found in the cloak-room,
and even the members of the subcommittee on
finance eat thereof and are glad. When every
body has satisfied himself as to the quality of
the fruit which happens to be on exhibition
then Senator Stanford incidentally remarks
that the fruit-raising industries of the United
States must be protected from competition on
uneven terms with the fruits of foreign lands.
The fruit itself is the backbone of his argu
ment. The argument is unanswerable.
a friend or but sroAK.
While the Senator from California is engaged
in looking after the interests of the fruit-raiser*
of the Pacific coast be is not unmindful of the
beet sugar producers, and unless a spirit of lib
eral compromise is developed by those who
want to cut the duty on sugar, there will be no
tariff bill passed by the Senate this session?or,
at least, it will not be passed if Senator Stan
ford oan help it. He believes that beet sugar
can be produced as cheaply, if not more so,
than the product of the cane. He claims for it
absolute purity, in combination with a larger
percentage of saccharine matter than in cane
sugar, and be fully expects to see the day when
the beet sugar of California is sold in the east
ern market at 4 cents per pound. A display of
beet sugar is now on its way to this city from
San Francisco, and the Senator expects to ex
hibit it just when and where it will do the most
good to California.
? COX8TAST STREAM FROM CALIFORNIA.
The loyalty which Senator Stanford displays
toward his state is almost without parallel, and
it would deplete the pocketbook of any one
who was not a millionaire several time* over.
Every day, with a regularity that knows but
few breaks, there arrives at the Senator's resi
dence in this city a huge box. which has come
iirect from California. In it will be found
edibles and liquids which were selected from
imong the best that the Golden State can pro
duce. These good things all decorate the din
ing table and tickle the palates of the Sena
tor's guests. On more than one occasion the
Senator has sat at the head of his mahogany in
this city and has feasted hia guests with noth
ing but California products, from oysters to
coffee and cigars, saving and excepting only
that popular denizen of the regions round
ibout W ashington?the terrapin. The venison,
the mutton, the quail, a week before the dia
ler, lived, moved, and had a being in Califor
aia. the two former as deer and sheep, respec
tively. The nuts, jellies, marmalades, pre
terves, apples, plums, raisins, figs, oranges,
trapes, ana wines all ripened under the glow
,ng sun of the Pacific coast. Everything came
from California and everything was perfection.
And Senator Stanford proposes to nave them
ill protected.
"No Leap Yenr In 1900."
ro the Edittrof The Evening Star .
While the above ia strictly true, the explana
ion appearing under that heading in The Stab
>f last Friday evening, taken from the Raleigh
N. C.) Ancs-Oiimrver, simply furnishes an
>ther example showing how imperfectly this
natter ia understood generally, and even by
hose of no mean attainments in literature and
cience. This would be very surprising, since
he historical facts and the computations in
rolved are so few and simple, were it not that
>eople seem to regard chronology a* a sort of
>ccult science. The little that is ever pub
ished relative to it is better calculated to beget
md foster error than to correct and remove it
It is desirable that the civil should coin
:ide as nearly as possible with the solar year.and
ince the latter include* a fraction of a day,
rhich would be a very inconvenient appendage
o the former, the elimination of this fraction
>ecomes a necessity. To accomplish thia Julius
'?sar, forty-six years B. C., conceived the
dan of reserving the fraction until the accu
nuluted fractions would amount to one day,
rhich should be added to the year, making
hat year one day longer than common years,
raking this fraction to be one-quarter of a day,
>r six hours (which it ia very nearly?lacking
>nly about eleven minutes), which would, of
:ourse, amount to one day in four years, he
irdained that one day should be added to
;verv fourth year, which was done invariably
intil the correction of the calendar by Pop*
Gregory XIII in 1582.
But one leap year was not dropped every
lundred years, as indicated in the article al
uded to; neither was any other provision made
'to allow for thia difference of eleven minntea
ser year" until said correction, which omis
lion alone made a correction necessary. Nor
raa this difference recognized or even known
intil, in making the correction, it was discov
sred by apportioning among the intervening
rears the accumulated difference a* shown by
;he difference in date of the autumnal equinox
n 1582, when the correction wa* made, and
?hat in 325 A. D., when the ''Council of Nice"
was held. Further, if Pope Gregory had, a*
itated. "decreed that every 'centurial' year
li visible by four should be a leap
rear" there would have been no "im
provement," as, in that case, every
inch year would still be a leap year, just as be
fore, because every centennial or 'centurial'
rear is divisible by 4. His plan ia based on the
ract that, in adding one day every four years,
is under Ca-war's plan, too much was added by
ibout eleven minutes every year, or forty
tour minutes every four years, amounting to a
loss of about three days in four hundred years;
hence the essential feature of hia correction is
the gain of three days by dropping that many
svery four hundred years, and the importance
?f keeping the error as small as possible by
gaining these three days singly and at regular
intervals, combined with the prominence of
the centennial years, led to the selection of
three of them, rather than three others, from
which to drop the day.
For thia reason only thoee centennial year* di
risible by 400 are leap year* under the preaent
(Gregorian) system, while other year* though
divisible bv 4 are not such. But the Gregorian
plan included aomething more than establish
ing a correct system. To make the reform
complete, Gregory made it retroactive, and
fixed dates as they would have been had his
system prevailed throughout the centuries
passed. Thia involved a change (aetting for
ward) of 10 day*, which was further increased
to 11 days by the English through ths addition
of the day to the year 1700, as England and her
colonies did not adopt the Gregorian cal
endar or "new style" until 1752, which
accounts for ths difference of eleven day* be
tween "O. 8." and "N. 8." in date* in our
history for the early part of last century. As
it is no unusual thing for the public to be
treated to choice bits of dubious information
based upon an imperfect knowledge of chro
nology (not the least of which is the conclusion
that the present calendar will need "doctoring"
again in about 4,000 years), it is hoped that
this subject may receive more attention in the
future, so that people may not be misled by
such published statements as that a certain
Senator was President of ths United States

TM BLAINB-BHKBBAN SITUATION DISCUSSED.,
"Whenever any one tells yon that Oen. Har
rison has promised this man or thatm,n a cab*
inet position," said a prominent republican
who has recently made a pilgrimage to Indian
apolis, "yon can set it down as a fact that the
one making the assertion is oither telling a de
liberate falsehood or he does not know. I
probably had as long a talk with Oen. Harrison
as any one who has visited him, and we talked
very freely. He asked me my opinion in re
gard to perhaps twenty different men who had
either applied for cabinet position* themselves
or who had been recommended by their friends.
In regard to each I told him what I thought
freely and frankly. He listened carefully;
sometime* acquiesced in my judgment of the
capabilities of the men. but gave no intima
tion of what action he intended to take. That
is bis practice with regard to every one whom
he summons for advice, and every one comes
away with the idea tha t he has impressed the gen
eral with his particular views. But when the
viaitor conies to think the matter over, he ia
forced to the conclusion that he cannot re
member a single expression made by Oen. Har
rison which would give him any encourage
ment whatever."
"Do yon think he entrusted any commiaaion
in regard to Mr. Blaine to Senator Hiacock?"
"I certainly do not. I know that Senator
Hiscock was invited to Indianapolis by Gen.
Harrison and that he was particularly ques
tioned in regard to the party differences in
New York. Hiscock, I am satisfied. pleaded the
cauae of Mr. Piatt, but more than thnt he urged
upon the President-elect the necessity of
recognizing Mr. Blaine by making him Secre
tary of State. He probably aaid that Mr. Blaine
waa the foremost representative of the party;
that he bad declined the presidential nomina
tion when he could have had it if he had al
lowed his name to be used by his friends, and
that now he should at least have the opportu
nity of declining the highest position in Oen.
Harrison's gift. Oen. Harrison probably
tacitly agreed to all that Mr. Hiacock said, but
did not promise anything. He might have re
ferred to the newspaper paragraphs represent
ing that Mr. Blaine wished to be only a private
citizen, and would not accept any office, no
matter how high, if offered him, ana intimated
that if Senator Hiscock could ascertain defi
nitely if that was Mr. Blaine's position, it would
be desirable. But I tell you Mr. Hiscock came
away from Indianapolis without knowing sny
more of Oen. Harrison's intentions than he did
before he left Washington."
"Do vou think Senator Hiscock was disap
pointed in his visit?"
"At first, no. He had freed his own mind;
be had said all he wished to. both in behalf
of Mr. Blaine and Mr. Piatt, and Oen. Har
rison had listened attentively and. seemingly,
had agreed with hia views. But when Hiscock
got back here and his fellow-Senators gathered
about him and wanted to know what promises
or pledges he had obtained, he was obliged to
confess that the talking at the interview with
the President-elect had been all on one side."
"Do you vourself think Mr. Blaine will be in
the cabinet/"
"I don't know any more than you do, and
yet I think he may be made Secretary of State.
If Senator Sherman would allow his friends to
be as active in his behalf as are those of Mr.
Blaine I am satisfied the Ohio man would head
the next cabinet, for then it would be a de
cision between two men equally strongly urged,
and the weight of influence would be in favor
of Sherman. But Mr. 8herman is holding his
friends back and wants to be forced into the
position of Secretary of State. I think a good
solution of the difficulty would be to make
Blaine Secretary of State and Sherman Secre
tary of the Treasury. One would then be a
check on the other. No one knows anything
about it yet, however, audi don't believe any
one will until the formal announcement that
the cabinet is made."
CAPTAIN BOYCOTT.
Why His Name Will Long be Remem
bered.
From the New York Times.
Though men' far more deserving of the
world's remembrance have been as utterly for
gotten a* if they never existed, Capt Boycott
will be remembered, in name at least, long
after his bone* have turned to dn*t. Accord
ing to hi* year* he ahould still be in the prime
of life, but for a decade the captain ha* not
lain upon a bed of roses, and he has aged pre
maturely, hi* hair and beard?the latter long
and luxuriant?being almost snow white.
Though, in a measure, driven from Ireland
on account of his opinion that eviction was the
most businesslike if not the only course to pur
sue toward a tenant who was behindhand with
his rent, but refused fto surrender his lease
until he was paid for all the improvements he
had made, Capt. Boycott has not changed
his views on the land question any more than
he has lost his love for the old sod. He still
persists in considering himself an Irishman
and the right sort of an Irishman, and though
there are, doubtless, a number of persons in
the Old Dart who would consider it a privilege
to put a bullet in his moat vulnerable spot, he
pays ap annual visit to Ireland, and for the
rest of the year looks forward for his next
visit to the land of his birth.
Capt. Boycott is now living in as quiet a spot
as can be found in England^ He is the agent
of Sir Hugh Adair, and has hia headquarters in
the sleepy little village of Flixton, in the heart
of Suffolk, miles away from a railway station or
a post-office or a telegraph office. To the vil
lagers h* is known as "the Captain." He does
not believe that the Irish troubles are a bit
nearer solution than when he left Ireland. The
Irish tenant farmer has difficulties, he admita,
but it is because, in his opinion, the farmer at
tempts impossibilities. Tha farmer tries to
eke out an existence on a piece of land which
in point of area alone is incapable of giving
him support. Why doe* he do this? The world
i* wide enough; why not move on? If he works
hard one year and fail* to make ends meet
there i* not much chance that the next year
will bring him better luck. The English farmer
is every bit as badly situated as the Irish
fanner, bnt he nses different tactics.
80 Capt. Boycott expressed himself a few
days ago. He said, too, that he considered bad
in principle the notion of accommodating ten
ant* according to the success or failure of their
crops. To be entirely fair the proposal should
at any rate be reciprocal, and to tliat the ten
ants he knew would object. To be successful
the farmer, Irish or English, must rely upon
hi* own resources. He had the option of leav
ing hi* farm, and landlord* had no keen relish
for unsuccessful holdings. The idea that every
tenant should be hi* own landlord was absurd.
The land league tried it The league purchased
an estate near Tuam, cut it into squares, and
invited the tiller* of the *oil to come down
from the mountain* and become ideal landlord*.
But the tenants who were already on the lands
wouldn't have the "poor devils," and they were
obliged to return to their mountain homes.
The proprietorships would be too expensive to
be beneficial to the soil.
The captain does not believe in home rule.
Ireland is an integral portion of the British
empire, and should remain so. Snch an insti
tution as a home-rule parliament would be no
more influenced in its labor* by the actual la
boring classes than is the house of common*.
The Irish people wanted education before
borne rule. If the latter were to be provided,
those who had the power should make certain
that the "so-called misgoverned, down-trod
den" people were going to share in it. At pres
ent it would not be so.
Balfour's policy, in Capt. Boycott's opinion,
was certainly anold and thorough one. While
a law remained let it be carried out unstint
inglv. But imprisonment of Irish members of
parliament was only making martyr* of them,
and in putting them in jail Balfour wa* only,
in a sense, beating hia own back. Yet Capt
Boycott could not see how Balfour could do
otherwise.
For John Dillon. Capt Boycott expressed
freat respect Dillon ne considers sincere,
or the "moonlighter," Capt Boycott expressed
a hearty contempt and detestation. The Irish
people could, and one day would, he thought,
extinguish the "brute."
In writing to a friend recently, the originator
of the persuasive term "boycott" said: "I go
for my annual holiday to dear old Ireland. It
is my one treat of the year."
The Victoria iron furnace and mines, located
at Ooshen, on the line of the Chesapeake and
