F. B. Notes, Treasurer Evening Star Newspaper Co. Subscribed and sworn to before me this eighth day of April. A. D. 1889. John T. C. Clark, Notary Public. Capt. Svmons says concerning certain of the illegal tracks in South Washington that the Commissioner* permitted the railroad to lay them and to occupy the public streets in order " to prevent as far as practical the accumula tion of cars on Maryland and Virginia avenues," and he thinks that, unless the law forbids, the railroad ought to be permitted to retain the tracks until it can get Congress to legalize its occupation. The law forbids the accumula tion of cars on Maryland and Virginia avenues. The railroad has the right to pass over these streets with its trains, not to convert them, as it has done, into storage yards or freight de pots. It was, doubtless, the duty of the Com missioners to prevent this illegal accumulation of standing-cars on the city streets, but the in tention of the law probably was that this should be accomplished by the application to the railroad of the ordinary warning penalties by which law-breakers are induced to refrain from a repetition of offenses. The Commis sioners. however, in order to prevent the rail road from occupying in an illegal manner certain avenues over which its trains are entitled to pass, have permitted it to take possession of other streets which the law for bids it to occupy for any puri>08e9 whatever, and Captain Symons thinks that this method of preventing violations of law by the railroad is a good one. If it is absolutely necessary for the Commissioners to supply some portion of the public streets to the railroad to be illegally tised as a storage yard and freight depot, then, doubtless, wisdom has been shown in the selec tion for this purpose of the part of H street in preference to Maryland avenue or Virginia avenue. Cut assuming that the railroad is not above the law. and that the Commissioners have not a particle of authority to dispose of a street in this manner, then the sooner the rail road and the Commissioners in conjunction cease to violate the law the better it will be for them and for the public. The railroad should | buy property to use for storage purposes, as it does elsewhere, instead of illegally occupy ing any of the public streets. ?-? The Commissioners are to be condoled with over the interruption that has come to their pleasant relations with the poor-house officials. Not long ago Controller Durham made himself disagreeable by objecting to their expenditures for decorated china for entertainment pur poses at the poor-house; a^d now they are called npon to investigate their hospitable en tertainers upon various charges. The 9torv of the decorated china as told in anothir column is rather curious. This set it seems was quite j elaborate, embracing decorated dinner plates, breakfast plates, tea plates, soup plates, ice cream dishes, butter plates, soup tureens, sauce dishes, meat dishes, cups and saucers, covered dishes, desert dishes, butter dishes, boat and stand, salad bowl, comports, pickle dishes Ac. to the extent of ? 151.75. The controller objected to the item that the price* were high and the outlay unreasonable for a public institution. The Commissioners replied that this table ware was necessary for the purpose of properly entertaining those officials of the District gov ernment whose duty it was to inspect the insti tution. They had, however, concluded to return the decorated set to the party from whom it was purchased. To have to return this decorated china must have been a painful blow to the Commissioners, ; for it of course put an end to the distinct ele gance of the high-jinks banquetting provided for them on their inspection visits to the poor- j house. As they feelingly put it to the control- | ler. they could only b? properly entertained on decorated china. Had Controller Durham no bowel* of compassion for the Commissioners, compelled by hi* rude objection to bring their refined We*t End tastes down to the level of ' common table-ware? Apparently not a bowel! If the blowing up of the big brewery in New [ Tork was really the result of a labor union con- j ?piracy, as is now claimed, the discovery of the j fact will be utilized to its fullest extent by the t enemies of labor organizations. But while there was trouble between the brewery owners j and a labor union, and the remote cause of the 1 crime may be traced to this controversy, it does ; not yet appear that the organization prompted ' the act. which seems to have been due to the ! personal exasperation of individuals. The ' exact facts in the matter will be of interest to 1 the public. Fresh material for a work of tiction | after the style of Keade's "Put Yourself in Hi* j Place" is furnished the novelist of to-day. Some of the local political economist* are j ?till engaged in the hopeless task of establish- ' lag that to increase one-third the general stand- ' ardof assessment of property tor taxes will re- ' duce taxation to a part of the tax-payers. The sensible demand is for uniformity of assess ment aud taxation, which is not in any respect to be gained by a mere change of the assess ment standard from one valuation to another, increasing the taxes of him who already pays too much as well as of him who pays too little. ? ? Our April snow interfered with the overhead wires in the city, and communication with the south was also cut off. The interference and isolation were not so complete as in the mem orable March blizzard, but the fact that a repe tition of them to any extent has been per mitted suggests that the warning of the blizzard disasters has not been properly utilized. Will the wires be underground at the time of the Kit great storm? Ex-Governor Porter, of Indiana, who is re covering from a serious illness, attributes his trouble to too much walking. It is just possi ble that some more Indiana men will be simi larly afflicted, after waiting awhile in Wash ington to get an office. Dut the walking is getting to be pretty good now. Our snow storm appeared as a cyclone in Virginia. There are competitor* against Da kota for the title of "Windy State."

It'a but a few iliort yean since men who aimed to Jw* well invariably sought the merchant tailor and had their clothe* mad* to special measure. We're changed all that here la Waahington, aa ia evidenced by the great business we are doing In flue and FINEST ready-made clothing. Kot alone by having made Into par men te, ready for immediate the finest and richest home and foreign fabrics, but by the perfection of fit and finish that characterise the garments we / offer, and bring them out in bold relief as the highest tyres of American skill ? in the clothing line, of course. There is no merchant tailor in America to day?no matter how high bis reputation or how ex travagant his claims and prices may be?that can turn out garments made of finer fabrics; that can produce better or more richly-trimmed Spring Suits and Light weight Overcoats than we are showing now. That can, with all his boasted skill, rrodr.ee more PERFECT FITTING garments than those to be found on our counters NOW, ready to put on and wear. ROBINSON, PARKER & CO. The Clothing wa sell Is designed by artists?we do not limit ourselves to the work of one?who receive larger salaries than merchant tailors can afford to pay. They simply design the patterns, however, and the mechanical work of cutting after their patterns falls to leas expensive cutters. .This Is the reason why we are enabled to offer clothing?ready for Immediate use?that will compare favorably with the best efforts of the most noted Custom Tsilors In this or any other country, at from 35 to 50 per cent lower prices than they will churgo. Is it any wonder then that we have been doing this season the finest and best business ever done in this section of the country f Is it any wonder that sensible men have grown tired of paying exorbi tant prices to Custom Tailors for the clothes they wear, when they can come to our House and see pat terns and styles enough to bewilder an ordinary buyer, get fitted perfectly then -?nd there, and pay from 35 to ."?0 per cent less for the clothes that suit their fancy ? No; men are growing wiser every day, and the wiser they grow the more ready-made clothes we sell.
