The Evening Star
is the Oldest and most firmly estab
lished newspaper published in the
District of Columbia, having won the
high position it hoH* in the confi
dence of the people of Washington by
forty years of faithful and unswerv ing
devotion to their interests, without
regard to any other influence or con
The Star is the Largest paper
published in Washington, with a
general equipment and printing facil
ities three-fold greater and better than
those of any other Washington paper;
and, having the full Day Reports
of both the New York Associated
Press and the United Press, supple
mented by an unequaled service of
Exclusive Special Dispatches from all
prominent points in America and
Europe, it prints more and fresher
Telegraphic News than any other
Washington paper can possibly sup
ply, furnishing at the same time a j
greater amount and better quality of
Local, Domestic and General Intelli
gence, and a larger quantity and
higher grade of Original and Selected
I.iterary Miscellany than any paper
in the District.
Being delivered at the homes of
regular subscribers for the trifling
sum of ten cents per week, The Star
is much the Cheapest paper published
in the District, quantity and quality
of contents being considered.
The Star's circulation in the City
of Washington is more than three
times larger than that of any other
newspaper, and the num1>er of its
readers more than five times as many.
It is therefore in that (or even greater)
proportion the Best advertising med
ium in the District. On this point
there is no ground for argument or
doubt, even. It is the common testi
mony of the business community, and
Note This Point
The Star gives the exact figures
of its circul'tion every week, and
cheerfully opens its books and press
and delivery rooms to any person
having interest in the correctness of
its statements, so that its patrons
know precisely how much publicity
they are getting when they buy space
in its columns.

SLAUGHTERING THE KED MEN.
Agent Royer Reports the Killing of 300 In
dians at Wounded Knee Creek.
The commissioner of Indian affairs this morn
ing received the following dispatch trom Agent
D. F. Hover, dated Pine liidge Indian agency
December 29: '
'?On Wounded Knee creek this morning while
the soldiers were disarming Big Foot and his
bandjafter their surrender a fight took place
which resulted in the killing of about UOO In
Idiaiis and several soldiers, including Capt. Wal
lace, with a number wounded.
FIGHT WITH "TWO BTBIKeV' BAX">.
"Two Strike and his party who were camped
on White Clay creek, just below lied Cloud s
house, opened fire on the agency from the hill
tops opposite the boarding school, wounding
two soldiers. The police returned the lire
killing two of the Two Strike Indians and
wounding two oth. rs. Two Strike and his
band have retreated in a northwesterly directon
from th.' agency, ami it is supposed lie is try
ing toI make his way back to the Bad Lands.
Thus far the Pine ltidge Indians have taken no
active part in the war. but Big Foot.Slow Bear,
Kicking Bear and the Two Strike bands have
been and are active in the disturbance."
THE TREACHEROUS SIOUX.
Official News of the Massacre of Capt. Wal
lace and Men Laid Before the President.
At about half-poet 10 o'clock this morning I
Secretary Proctor took all of the late telegrams
from the seat of the Indian troubles that were
in his possession over to tho President and
officially communicated the sad news of the
death of Capt. Wallace and his men to his chief.
There were no particulars in the
budget to add to those already
published. The officials concluded that inas
much a* Ge%. Miles has alreadv been given am
ple discretionary power to act in anv emer
gency it is not necessary to send him any fur
ther instructions. The Secretary had alcon
ferenco with Geu. Schotield immediately after
his return from the White House, but no new
action wad decided upon. The Secretary will'
not express any opinion as to yesterday's light
while Gen. Schotield merely says that the
treachery of the Indians, which led to the skir
mish, was to have been expected.
what adjt. amy. keltox bats. *
Adjutant General Kelton remarked: "It was
not to be presumed for a moment that the In
dians, accustomed as they are to strife, would
consent to lay down their arms peaceably and
without a protest. There is nothing official
here yet in the way of information to indicate
just on what terms the vidians consented to
come in the second time, but I do not
believe that thero was any mention
made at first of surrendering their
arms. They probably came in with Uie belief
that they would be allowed to keep their guns,
and when the demand was made on them to
give up their rifles and other weapons they re
volted. It was too much to aak of them. I do
not suppose that there was anv positive plan
for the attack1 formed, but the matter
was probably talked over among the In
dians before they reached the camp. Tho
Indians are well armed with Winchester hunt
ing rifles, and at close ranges are better shots,
as a rale, than the soldiers. An Indian's shot
must kill. He cannot afford to miss, for en his
ammunition depend his life, his food, hia
safety. He has all of the instincts that tend to
good marksmanship, a quick eye, a sure touch
and nerves under perfect control. He never
loses his head and, under the most trying con
ditions, amid the greatest danger, he isalway*

the company; Edward J- Stellwager.. the vice
president; lien. A. J. Warner. ?uj>erinteudeut;
W. K. Sch?eppf, engineer; Col. W right and Mr.
John T. Arms.
OBJECTIONS TO THE BILL.
The latter was the only objector present, al
though Commissioner Douglass read serersl
petitions against the road. One of these peti
tions came from the residents and property
owners of 18th street, who thought the street
too narrow to accommodate a railroad.
Mr. Arms said, when the objectors to the bill
were called for, that his objections were con
tained in the petition read by Commissioner
IX FATO* or THE BU.L.
Mr. Francis G. Newlands then spoke in favor
of the bill, giving in detail an outline of what
the rood had done and what it expected to do.
He said that already the company had shown
its good faith by 'expending over *200.000 in
grading, and had contracts let for bridges
across the Klingle , ford and ltock
creek aggregating ?150,000. 'lhe road,
he said, would be running about
the 1st of June next. ilr. Newlands
then explained the desirability of the ro'Ad and
the route as proposed. He was not wedded to
any one route so long as the company had
termini at Biggs Bank and the Capitol. 1 he
main object of the road, be added, was to get
from the center of the city a direct line to the
THE QUESTION Or TRANSFER#.
Commissioner Douglass desired to know if
any provision had been made for transfers f rem
The conversation drifted th ?n to the general
subject of transfers.
Commissioner Boss desired to know if the ex
isting tracks of the Metropolitan railroad on
18th street or the Washington and Georgetown
tracks on 14th street could not lie utilized:
Mr. Newlands said that he had conferred with
gentlemen interested in both companies aud
tound that there was considerable opposition to
anv such arrangement.
Gen. A J. Warner, the superintendent of the
rocd, explained the route and exhibited map
showing the lines as at present decided upon
and the route proposed.
Col. Bobert asked if the company proposed
to lay a double track, and if so who would
widen the street.
Mr. Douglass said that a way out of the difli
cultv might be for the compauy to run up one
streef and down the other.
Gen. Warner said this was impossible, as the
cost would be too grea'..
THE MOTIVE POWER.
Col. Bobert inquired what motive power
would be used, and Gen. Warner said that
outfeide of the city limits the overhead elec
tric system would be employed. Inside of
the city the motive power had not been de
Col. Bobert paid he was in favor of the stor
age battery system anil believed it was only a
matter of a few months before a system o!
storage batteries would be perfected.
ADVISABILITY OF A CROSB-TOWN ROAD.
A general discussion followed on the needs of
Washington for additional railroad facilities,
and the conversation drifted to the advisability
of a cross-town road.
Commissioner Boss called attention to the
fact that at present the High School had no
railroad facilities from the east. All present
agreed that a cross-town road along 8 street
would be the most acceptable.
Mr. Douglass said that he was of the opinion
that this w.i* the most desirable street for a
cross-town railroad to pass over, as it was prac
tically straight and did not interfere with any
circles. It was thought that the road, as pro
posed, interfered with the route proposed bv
the Fast and West Washington traction rail
The bill was sent for and it was discovered
that the routes were entirely different, save be
tween the Baltimore and Ohio depot and the
Capitol along New Jersey avenue.
A PROPOSED CSANOE Or ROHTE.
Mr. Newlands called attention to the fac1
that as there was no objectk a to any portion
of the road save along that part of the route
on 18th street between Q and It tho Com
missioners approve all the remainder of the
roatl aud allow the company to further amend
bv coming down 18th street as far as S. thence
east along S to 17th. and down 17th to connect
with the proposed tracks on 1* street.
The Commissioners promised to giTe the
matter careful consideration before reporting.
the rock creek park.
The Surveys May All Be Completed in Janu
It is probable that the work of surveying the
land and laying down the lines of the Bock
Creek Park will be completed during January.
Ccpt. Bossell has pushed the work so far that
he has now laid down on the map all the exte
rior lines of the park. The work of ascertain
ing the exact boundaries of the different prop
erties included in the park is going on and is
rendered somewhat slow by the difficulty expe
rienced in finding old boundary stones. The
exterior lines as laid down as the result of the
survey include, as it is estimated, 1.980 acres,
or twenty acres less than the maximum limit
allowed by law. On a map prepared in Capt.
ltossell's office this park of 1,980 acres is
shown with an irre^lar-shajied lake
about 100 acres in area in the northern part of
it. This lake is supposed to be formed by
damming Bock creek. The present park com
mission, however, have nothing to do with the
future improvement of the park, their duty be
ing to secure the land to the government.
Alter their work is done the care of the park
devolves upon the chief of engineers of the
army and the District Commissioners. When
the map for which surveys are now being
made-it completed it will be filed in the re
corder of deeds' office aud constitute nnder the
law the first step toward the ap
propriation of the ground br the
government. The Commissioners will then
endeavor to settle with the land
owners by private arrangement, offering them
what they consider a fair price. In the cases
where no agreement can be reached the matter
will go into court for settlement. If it be
found that the whole 1.980 acres cannot be pur
chased within the appropriation of ?1.200,000 it
is probable a new map will have to be pre
pared, cutting down the dimensions of the jiark
to fit the appropriation. After the park is se
cured there will be considerable work to be
done in the way of assessing benefits to
property in the vicinity. Capt. Bossell,
in speaking of the matter to a Star reporter
today, (expressed a doubt whether the
.'ork required to secure the park would be ad
vanced far enough to justify an appropriation
for the improvement of the jierk. He thought
the first improvement called for to make the
park available was the construction of roads
and bridle baths. After that money conld be
spent to advantage in building bridges.

THRtr. kksiys or ixpnrruiAL M>rcAnox.
He mid that in the diviaion of the aubject he
would consider it fraai th? point of view known I
as the South Kensmpton. The meaning of tbe
term industrial education w applied to a wide
| variety of schools. There was. in the first
place, the schools of applied science, which
sought to train engineer*. architects. chemists
and others tor the life work.
Then t!if re were the trade achoola. which pro
posed not to train men to investigate tlie mate
vial resource* of the country and to develop
them, but to ft ire them the training needed by
actual workera in tbe industries in other i
worda. fitting men for the trades which will be ,
their future occupation. Thi?form. the *j?eskcr
aaid. waa what industrial education it tieially
The third form of industrial education and
the one that the *|>eaker proceeded to explain '
was that which did not seek to lire pure men for '
technical professions or to tollow any slier ul
trade, but which became a part of the I
general training of the scholar. In- |
Ftruction of thi< character ahoiild lie engrafted
and made a part of the achool curriculum, so
that the student could gain, in connection with
acquiring a general education, the ability to
use the hand and acquire the training of the
eye. He believed thai auch an enlargement and
enrichment of the pre-s. nt course of training
would make better and happier citizens, elevate
end dignify labor and enhance the productive
power of the community.
PKor. patten's views.
The same topic waa discussed from the stand
point of consumption by 1'rof. (Simon N fat
ten. He pointed out that the older economists
had thought that the solution of the problem
of the improvement of the condition of tlie
working people lay in tbe increase of produc
tive power. The present day bad wit
nessed a great increase in" productive
power and still the problem was unsolved.
Then the importance of distribution was c-m
pliasizcd in the solution of this problem, liut
tbe improvement of distribution, the speaker
said, had not resulted as expected. He
called attention to the fact that \.<ulc
great care had been exercised in the
production and distribution of food pro
ducts yet after all this care when the
Kjduct reached the consumer it was wasted,
e waste of consumption, be maintained, had
increased, and by far the greater part of the
food products brought to a great city was
wasted. He cited the case of shoes, which, he
said, were lost to the consumer simply from
i tbe fact that they were purchased by persons
| who had not the judgment to know the
| proper kind of shoe to buy. He also said
' that while the methods of making shoes hud im
proved constantly the quality had decreased,
so that now the suoes on the market were lower
in quality than was the case years ago. Hi- at
tributed this condition of affairs largely to the
fact that the members of the families were not
familiar with the methods of production, such
as making shoes, cooking food, and as
a result they were not able to judge of the qual
ity of the articles produced, l'oorer shoes
were purchased becaui?e of the ignorance of the
buyer and food was cooked in an inferior man
ner for the reason that this work was left to
| the ignorant, and they were without proper
I direction and supervision because the
persons upon whom this duty should
devolve were themselves incapable of giving
intelligent direction. He pointed out that this
ignorance on the part of the people of these
practical matters it as the cause of the waste
that was now going on. The lack of knowledge
of cooking on the part of poor people had the
effect of limiting tne article,; of food There
was no country, lie caid. which produced a
greater variety of vegetables than this
conntry, and yet he knew no country
where vegetables entered so little into the diet
of the people. This was liecause tbe people did
not know how to cook them. In his opinion
this view of consumption had a direct sud
important bearing upon the present condition
of the people. He believed that American society
needed this kind of education more than any
other country. There was in this country a
great ignorance of the art of preparing food for
the table. He also spoke of the ignorance of
people about m< tiding clothes and said that it
seemed to him that the object of the poor men
waa to buy a stocking, for example, that would
wear out so quickly that it would not need 10 be
mended. ? This state of affairs resulted in the
production of the cheapest and the poorest
quality of clothing. He thought that wliat was
needed was the development in people of care
ful. intelligent habits of consumption, and this
waa the key of the entire situation.
tbainiso of returns arm in*.
He spoke of the effect that the training
which the standing armies in European coun
tries had in giving habits of care and at
tention to small detail*. While he did not be
lieve in large standing armies, yet the lesson to
be drawn was that the teat her in America must
do w hat the officer does in Europe. As soon as
the teacher takes hold of the s holar in the sys
tematic way that the army officer does the re
cruit then results may be expected that will im
prove the habits of consumption.
OTHER PAPERS OS TUE SlfrtrT.
Papers by Dr. N. M. Butler on technical edu
cation from the standpoint of general educa
tion and by Prof. James MacAlister on its
easy adaptation to school curriculum and man
agement were read by title, as the authors were
unable to attend the sessions < if the association.
An interesting discussion followed tbe reading
of these papers, which waa generally partici
pated in by tlie members.
THE LIMITS or PUBLICITY.
The next paper was on the limits of publicity,
by Prof. Davis B. Dewey. 1 he speaker spoke
of the growth of publicity in different direc
tions as illustrated by tbe census, the Amer
ican system of taxation, exhibition of corporate
accounts and health statistics. He thought that
further extension of this system should be
made in regard to the health condition of the
population. In another direction, he said,
further data should be collected lu regard to
the demand and supply ol products.
MCK1CIPAL OWNERSHIP OF OAS WORK*.
An interesting paper on "Municipal Owner
ship of Gas Works in the United States " was
read by Prof. Edward W. Bemis of Yanderbilt
University. He said that of the nine cities that
now own ai.d operate their gas works in thi*
country one, Hamilton, Ohio, a city of 20.000
inhabitants, bas begun too recently to enable
results to be given. The other eight,
Philadelphia, Wheeling. W. Ya., Bellefon
taine, Ohio. Henderson. Ky., and four
cities in Virginia, Bichmon'd. Danville,
Charlottesville and Alexandria, after a fair trial
of many years, have recently refused to enter
tain good" offers from private companies to take
the works off their hands. There is most dis
pute about Philadelphia, which began owner
ship in 1841, and most foolishly placed the en
tire control of the works till 1885 in tbe hands
of a sclf-perpetuating Ijodv of trustee*, who.
being free from responsibility to the
people, a primary principle of public
finance, naturally abused their powers and be
came a corrupt body. The bad results finally
led to the overthrow of tbe trust in 1885 and
the restoration of the works to public control.
Since then the city management has steadily
improved until, in 1889, the cost of over 3.000,
900.000 feet of gas. twenty candle power,
was only 74 cent* per 1.000 feet, no al
lowance "being made for interest and tbe
taxes which a private company would have to
pav. Allowing 5 per cent interest and 3 per
cent taxes on the cost of duplicating tbe works,
very high figures, the cost of gas would be only
$1.02. The city buys some water gas of a pri
vate company, but could make it nearly as
cheaply if allowed by the legislature to raise
monev" for constructing the proper works.
Bichmond, Ya., with a ?population of 87,000,
manufactures gas at 76 cents a thousand feet.
An allowance of ( per cent for interest and 1
per cent for taxes would raise the cost to only
