To Corrfipon<1fnt?. ttr letter* relating to the editorial or business 4op*rtmentB of tho paper should be addressed to the Editor, or th? Publisher, aa the rase may be, and not to an individual. The Utter course fre quently causes vexatious delays. tw Communications cannot be returned. Where preservation Is desired, writers should re tain a copy of their manuscripts. f Anonymous communications ire not read In this office. It is therefore useless to send them This community owes a debt of gratitude to Mr. Taulbee. both for bis effort to preserve in its integrity the testimony in the real estate investigation an J for his honest and sensible re port upon this testimony. He has done his duty in the face of abuse and of annnoying though petty persecution. The findings of his report are fully sustained by the testimony, as it came from the mouths of the witnesses, and represent the opinions of nine-tenths of the people of the District. This investigation was not originated by The Stab, or urged by it, or conducted by it after the House had decided upon the inquiry, and it has not thonght that the committee has per formed tho duty of investigation which the House intrusted to it. But the testimony which was forced upon the committee sustains in every substantial particular Tub Stab's pub lished statements of fact, so far as they bear upon the same points, and the reasonableness of Tie Stab's deductions from these facts will, it is believed, be sustained by the judgment of every one of its readers. According to the majority report Mr. Cox was requested by the Commissioners, '-in the absence of any expressed authority of law to employ an agent," "to assist in the procuring aud purchasing of certain sites" for public uses -without compensation from them, and in such purchases Mr. Cox "acted maxnly in the inter est of the grantor to the District." Mr. Cox is thus left in the position of serving two hos tile masters, and this report does not state by whom, as a matter of fact, his compensation was actually paid. The questions of greatest interest to the District are not directly touched. The community had hoped that the committee would investigate and ascertain whether the relations of Mr. Cox to the Commissioners were or were not of the confidential character which would prevent him from buying on his own ac count the property indicated as desirable for public use and from selling at an advance to the District, as in the police station site case. It was expected that an opinion would be given as to whether or not the District did not pay Mr. Cox's compensation in cases like that of Mr. Willard and that of Mr. Dodge, where the vendor viewed Mr. Cox as the representative of the District, charged and collected his own price for the property sold, and openly and avowedly added Mr. Cox a compensation to tho price which the vendor was willing to take in order to make the price which the District paid. The testimony throws considerable light on these questions. How in view of that evidence the majority of the committee could indorse, even vaguely and evasively, a method of pur chase which is not only "susceptible of abuse," but which by making an intermediary serve two masters is certain to be abused, passes all comprehension. Where the intermediary was known to represent the District, the excuse for his employment fails; where he was paid directly or indirectly by the District, suoh pay ments were without authority of law. and where he was paid by the vendor a commission dependent on the amount of the price se cured it is logically absurd to assert that he voluntarily cheapened that price, and ' with it his own commission. The system of purchasing employed will be condemned by every thoughtf tl mind, and it should be reformed in the public interest. The Commissioners have befogged the real issues in this controversy in order that they might congratulate themselves npon vindication from charges which have not been made. There is no escape from the conviction that the method of purchase is bad. that the present interme diary has not. in its application, relieved it of any of its objectionable qualities, and that the Commissioners ought to have known more than they did concerning the conduct of their non descript assistant in the duty of purchasing public sites. The testimony suggests, not cor ruption. but unfitness for important executive office in the Commissioners affected. Senator Harris has made a resolution and there is no doubt he will keep it. The failure of the Senate to confirm the President's ap- . pointments has decided the Tennessee Senator j to make a motion daily to the end of the session to go into executive session and con sider nominations. He finds that Mr. Cleve land's nominations to the number of 277 have been pigeonholed. In contrast. President Arthur made 612 nominations subsequent to the election in 1*W4. and all but 20 were con firmed, while Mr. Hayes nominated CHO officials in the same period, and but few of them were not confirmed. The figures, it is claimed, speak well for the present administration. The number is not unusual?rather under than over the number of routine appointments. Rat the difference comes with a decided dis tinction. The republican presidents were choosing officials from their own party ranks. What the republican Senators seem to object to is a legacy of democratic office-holders. They, doubtless, think they have received all they want already. Rearrangement of state lines is something legislatures have always been slow to approach. A conse rvative sense of the dignity of a state in the American union seems to have stead fastly deprecated any tinkering with state boundaries. Alabama is now asking to have that part of Florida west of the Chattahoochec and Appalachicola rivers set off from Florida and annexed to Alabama. The suggestion is In some lights a good one. A long "shoe String" section of any state usually feels its isolation, and sooner or later craves annexa tion to the most congenial territory adjoining. The Florida strip is anxious to share in the '-new south" spirit that is making Alabama march so rapidly forward. Work stopped Saturday on the Panama canal. ?nd it will be time soon to get news of the re mit on the thousan<ls of negroes and coolies employed there. As Ion* as their money holds out they will behave well enough. After that it will take good management and some force to control them. Three American war vessels are at the Isthma/ ready for any outbreak. An organized effort should be made promptly to remove the negroes back to the West Indies. Whale's milk is the latest jtanacea for scrofu lous disease. It sells in the form of "whid oid," a condensed form of the article. So far London is the onlv place where it is obtainable.

Ton probably know that some black ?tocking* will, anil aome black (forking* will not a tain the feet, wash brownish, and wear Into allta The latter, of course, la the desideratum, aud ladies who hare experienced the annoyance and baleful ef fecta of Fast Black Hum that were not l ast Black, will be triad to know that we have re ceived our Spring importation of Black Hosiery that we can guarantee to be absolutely ail we claim them to be. which ia aa follows: The dye ia guaranteed purely vegetable, and perfectly harmless in effect, either to the akin or the hoee. The black ia guaranteed absolutely perma nent, brilliant in finish, unaffected by heat or perspiration, and of indellibly lasting quali ties. The fabrics are guaranteed fine hard-twisted cotton thread, or liale thread, of extreme dura bility, will not crock or wear (into hole*, and will wash perfectly. When we guarantee an article we mean what we say.and when we guarantee these Hoee to be aa above represented, we mean if a pair abould turn out to be otherwise you have only to return them and get your money. No "ifs" and "and*" about it. We will refund the money for every I*ir not as represented. We have thoroughly tested these brands, and have had them stamped," "Woodward & Lothrop," as a matter of good faith. We believe we have com* the closest yet to perfection in the matter of "Fact Black Hose," and we confidently recommend theui aa having great intrinsic merit. 100 Dot Ladies' "Fast Black" Hose, at 2r>e.

While to have them absolutely "Fast Black" has been the greatest considera tion, it is none the less important tliat they should be exceedingly durable?epecially for the Boys, who api^car to be getting harder and and harder on their stockings every year. These can be depended upon for looks, per manent blackness, and durability, and consid ering their comparative inexpensiveness, we believe the present stock to be the best in every respect we have yet shown. 150 dozen Children*' "Fast Black" Fine Ribbed Cotton Hose, spring weight, double at the knee, heel, aud toe; all sizes from 5 to 8)? inches, > ONLT 25c. PER PAIR. 100 dozen Children's "Fast Black" Tlain Fine Cotton Hose for young girls; double at heel and toe; splendid quality, and warranted. ONLY 25c. PER PAIR. The truest test of superiority is the wear, and we place these against any twenty-five cent Hose manufactured. We also offer more than half a dozen qualities of Children's Hose, which for sake of equity are marked at graded prices; that is, each pair from 5 inches np telling for two cents more than the size smaller These are in plain, ribbed, and drop-stitched styles, and each and every grade represents all that the particular prices can possibly procure. As absolutely "Fast Black" Hose are a boon to the purchaser, we con fldently predict an an usu ally large demand for these special qualities, and shall be jJkspared to wait upon all with promptness and dispatch. (First floor: first annex; rear.) MEN'S "FAST BLACK" nOSE. Heretofore it has been almost impossible to secure an absolutely "Fast Black" Hose for men without paying quite a large price for them. Such is no longer the case. We have exerted strenuous efforts, and now have the pleasure of placing before you not only the finest qualities and most reliable dyes, but the most inexpensive line we have ever offered. As with the Ladies' and Children's Hose we also ?guarantee these to be absolutely "Fan" in color, and nut to crock, or fade, ia washing. SPECIAL 100 doz. Men's "Fist-Mack" Fine CottonlHalf Hose, gqpd length, double heel and toe, well shapen, and splendid quality. ONLY 25c. PER PAIR. We spread out a table full of these to-mor row mcrniug. We also offer other extraordinary fine grades at 50 55, aud 70c. per pair. These are not only desirable to wear with patent-leather pumps, but on account of being fast-black, are equally desirable for wear with gaiters and boots, and are wanner than either unbleached or str. ped hose. (Men's door, 1013 F street.) ITEMS OF INTEREST IN MEN'S FURNISHINGS.
