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.

?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.

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

The dye ia guaranteed purely vegetable, and
perfectly harmless in effect, either to the akin

The black ia guaranteed absolutely perma

perspiration, and of indellibly lasting quali
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

CHILDREN'S "FAST BLACK" HOSE.
Children's Hosiery. Here it is that we wax
strongest. 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.

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
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.

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.

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.
