TI1E EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON: FRintY nar .1. 1W9. CBCMRT S. lovt * Editor. 1HE m??a STAR baa (he lallrat I^ral ' Irrmlatioa of aijr Nrwiin^rrla the World, ard as an Advertising Median la wortb mere tbaa all lk? other paper* pablisbed la It aakliftm. In pursuance of the intelligent and liberal policy which characterizes the management of the Pennsylvania railroad in ita dealings with other citiea than the defenseless capital of the nation, that corporation favors the bill against (Trade crossings which is pending in the Penn sylvania state senate. President Roberta, in a letter on the subject, says: "I do not think that any argument is needed to convince the public that the time has gone by when the lives and limbs of oar citizens should be constantly exposed to the perils re sulting from crossing of streets by steAm rail roads at grade. The records of the city of Phila delphia show that annually about forty people lose their lives at such graile crossings, while a much larger number are more or lew seriously injured. ? ? ? This company has long recognized the necessity of their removal in the interest of the public. ? * ? In pur suance of this policy it has succeeded in eliminating all such crossings from ita main line in the city of Philadelphia, and for a dis tance of nine miles beyond. It is certainlv within your recollection'that in order to reach the prevent station at Broad street by an ele vated road it expended between four and five millions of dollars, and thus secured the re moval of all the freight tracks from Market street and the abandonment of the then exist ing grade crossings between Fifteenth street and the KchuvlkiU Kiver. The same policy has been pursued by the company for many years past on its main line in the city of Pittsburg, with the result that all grade crossings of im portant streets within its limits are now avoided. This policy is being steadily pursued on our lines to New York an? Washington also." When may indications of this policy be ex pected to exhibit themselves in Svashington? By surface tracks, in part illegal, and by the illegal occupation for freight and storage pur poses of its surface tracks, the road not only exposes the people of Washington to the dangers of grade-crossings, but -by its belt of frequently impassable tracks cuts off easy communication by trade and travel between the main city and Sonth Washington and the river front, and isolates a large and well-popu lated section of the capital. When will the road spend a considerable sum of money as it did in Philadelphia to eliminate grade-cross ings? II enjoys here free right-of-way on the public streets and a free station site on the city's largest public park. Is it thoroughly sat isfied in the face of its enviable record else where to grab greediiy whatever it can get from the public at the capital, and to make no return for the unusual and extremely valuable privileges received, merely because Congress, the legislature of the city, is ever willing to sacrifice to it the interests of the people? Is such discrimination against a whole community profitable in the long run? Would it not pay better ultimately for the company through its agents here to cultivate a friendly feeling toward it in the community and to show the same regard for the lives and property of this people as for those of the residents of Phila delphia and Pittsburg? In an interview in to-day's New York World Bishop Totter explains exactly what he meant by "Jacksonlaa vulgarity" and other criticised expressions in his centennial sermon. "Vul garity." as he U3ed the word, did not refer to manners, but to the political atmosphere. The bishop, it appears, did not mean that Jackson and the people of his time were slangy in their conversation, or repulsive in dress, compared with Washington and his cotemporaries, but that the moral tone of the age in po litical matters was low. The bishop fur nishes convincing evidence in this interview that he is not so biased in favor of the staid and formal methods of expression employed in Washington's time that he abjures all peculiarly modem forms of speech which are vulgar in the sense of common. If he is un dulv prejudiced against modern methods as compared with the old, his prejudice does not extend to figurative and racy Americanism in speech. For no one will believe without evidence that George Washington ever spoke in such fashion as to give the bishop a precedent for saying as he does in this interview: "I hate 'taffy'," and ' now yon catch the idea." and "in dead earnest." and "it makes me very tired." The father of his country may have been a tr.de eccentric in his notions of spelling, but except when he was very angry his language was formal and precise. His spirit doubtless frowns upon the bishop's surrender to the verbal vulgarities of a degenerate age. There was a grand jail delivery yesterday, when the army of crooks, arrested and re manded for the protection of honest people during the centennial celebration, were turned loose upon New York again. The law nnder which the arrests were made ought to be copied into the statute book of every state, territory and district of the Union. It treats crime like insanity?not waiting for an outbreak, with damages to be repaired, but putting the patient beforehand where he can do no harm when his acute symptoms appear. It is an arrangement of which the crook himself cannot reasonably complain, because nobody is affected by it ex cept one who pract:ses the recognized profes sion of a public robber; and he has only him self to blame if his evil courses, long persisted in, bring down this annoyance upon his head. Evidently no murderer is to hang in the Dis trict if there is any loop-hole of escape from this painful duty. Between commutations of sentence, the granting of new trials, and re prieves, the local scaffold is as idle as the most earnest opposer of capital punishment could wish. The drunken carousing which disgraced the close of the centennial ball is in ni*rk >d con trast with the exemplary conduct of the still larger crowd wU.ch attended the inaugural ball. At the latter gathering no wine was per mitted to be sold, and the same |rule might have been adopted with advantage in Nei York. They are to have another old-fashioned row over offices in New York city, where the inter est of the county democracy,, represented in the person of D. LowberSmith, Mayor Hewitt's commissioner of public works, refuses to step out and make room for Mayor Grant's newly appointed commissioner, Thomas F. Gilroy, of Tammany hall. The two mv;n are personal friends, but that will not prevent their carrying their controversy as far as the courts permit. The way they are going at each other recalls the occasion when Hubert O. Thompson oust ed Henry A. Gumbleton from the connty clerk's office by entering it through a trap door from the cellar in the night and barring him out when he came to attend to his daties in the morning. Nepotism! Nepotism! The attorney-general | of Missouri has appointed his wife first assist ant attorney-general. She was admitted to practice eight years ago, is a member of the state bar association, and was for some time her husband s law partner. If this is not run ning an office on the family plan, what is? But whoever beard of the offense taking such a | form before? It appears that a big revolution in Mexico was prevented by putting a vigorous cheek ?pon a little revolution. It is a pity all up setting devices of that sort could not be dis posed of with equal ease. Calvin Gorman succeeds Higgins as a national sua contributed by Maryland. 1 A recently published work on "The Art of Advertising" says: "A point which will afford reliable information as to the value of a publi cation as an advertising medium is the cloee neee with which the publisher adheres to his advertising rates."
