F. B. Notes, ? Treasurer Evening Star Newspaper Company. Subscribed and sworn to before me this BiaUi day of September, A.D. 1880. JOHJt T. C. CLARK, Notary Public. Another injunction against tbe Commission ers and the incandescent light company and their answers in the suit brought by the gas company serve to keep the question of public lighting before the eyes of the people. The legal positions assumed by the electric light company and the Commissioners hi their pleading* aro substantially those already outlined in this column. The points of greatest interest in the contro versy are of course those which relate to the power of the Commissioners to authorize a tearing up of the streets, and to tbe compara tive merits of the two methods of lighting. The position of the Commissioner* and the electric light company in respect to the streets is that the prohibition against opening them which the gas company discovers in the legislation of last session applies only to persons and corporations who seek to acquire easements in them for private purposes, and not to the municipality itself in carrying out an authorized change in the method of public lighting. Instances are cited in which the District has exercised powers sim.lar to that claimed in the present caso under a like indirect authority. In regard to the fitness of the incandescent light as a substi tute for gas the pleadings say that it is of 35 candle power, that it is successfully used in Pittsburg. State a Island, Plauifield, N. J., Port land, Oregon, Denver and many other places, and that the candle power of the gas furnished is le^s than 20 as shown by the report of the gas inspector. The least that the public may expect to gain from the fight is an improvement in the publi^ lighting to the extent of an increase in the can dle power of the gas from the figures reported by the inspector to the 23 candio power claimed by the gas company in its pleadings. The tidal wave which swept along the New Jersey and Long Island coast* yesterday played havoc with property of all kinds that came within its reach and caused the death of one person, while a number of others narrowly escaped. There seems to be a resolve on the part of nature te change the coast line on that side of our continent. Every year for a long period we have had heavy tides or storms which have cut into the shore so seriously a* to put real estate owners to very heavy expense. At tbe summer resorts there have been many instances of ruined breakwaters, wrecked piers, undermined buildings, and of music pavilions and garden improvements lifted up bodily and carried out to sea. It is a pretty good proof of the profitableness of catering to the comfort-seeking public, that tbe managers of these summer cities are willing always to move and grade and build again, in spite of an experience which has taught them that old ocean cannot be depended on to keep one mood and one abiding place for a month at s time. "Our flag is still there," floating, after three quarters of a century of shocks and storms, over the city whose salvation was made mem orable in Key's national anthem. Baltimore this week invite* all her friends to Join her in a celebration which, though local in its incep tion, is in a broader se use national. Thanks to the patriotism of their ancestor*, th6 people of our sister city are able to spread before their guests the trophies of a long period of inde pendence, enterprise, and thrift. Baltimore will exhibit her domestio trade, her foreign commerce, her manufacturing industries, the agricultural resources of her environ*, her fire and military defence*, and her social attrac tions. Every American community can afford to wish her well with her celebration, for it commemorates not only her own repulse of th>? invading Brit'sh, but the way she pre vented, by indirection, the ruin of many other towns m the infant republic. The first number of the Democrat, tbe new democratic weekly, edited by Edmund Hudson, was published in this city on Satur day. It announces itself as an "aggressive party newspaper," and its contents furnish con vincing evidence that it intends to live up to its announcement The new paper makes a good appearance and start* with excellent prospects. It devote* itself exclusively to po litical news and discussion, and avoids the mis take of attempting to combine a general news paper and a political organ in the same sheet The wail of the 1 Philadelphia press over the decadence of the Pennsylvania can a. finds a piompt echo hers in the general lamentation at the rum of the Chesapeake and Ohio canal. Both of these water ways have served a noble purpose in their day, and deserved a better fate than to be allowed to fall into decay now, simply becaase a spring flood has don* them a serious mischief. The Russian minister of the interior bas issued Astringent or ler prohibiting the further "packing of small children in baskets, to tba number of eight in a basket, and forwarding them to the loundling bouses in the great towns as hand-ln^gage." This order inctdjut aliy furnisae* interesting information concern ing a curious branch of Russian industry; and by its form of wording also raises the question whether the baby-packers would violate its provision* if they should pack somewhat larger i children in boxes not baakets, sty only four to each box, and forward thom by freight nisi sail of as hand-luggage.
