There was an enthusiastic meeting of the Washington and Gettysburg railroad promoters at Laytonsvllle yesterday after noon. People poured in from all sections and many contributed money toward the success of the new road. It is understood that an aggregate of *-'l,oOO was contributed yesterday in a very short time. The promoters have already spent 120,000 for rights of way, and have secured about twenty-eight miles, all told. It is a stipulation that the money sub scribed is not to be called for or paid un til the road Is built. It is underwood the promoters are back ed by well-known railroad financiers and brokers of New York city, and that the road will be built with the approval of the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsylvania sys tems. It Is understood that the call for sub scriptions is being responded to liberally in Rockville and other points. At a meeting in the interest of the same road at Etchlson. Montgomery county, Tuesday, a very large crowd assembled to hi ar I he address of Dr. J. D. Colgrove of New York, one of the promoters of the new road. It Is understood that In Etchi son a total of about $1,000 was subscribed. In the survey of the road from Derwood to Westminster easy grades have been found, with the exception of one short sec tion. but this, it is said, can be avoided by resurveying. and yet not changing the present route to any great extent. The route through from Derwood to Oettys bur. via Mount Airy, seems to be almost an air line and will not be over sixty miles in length. It 1j said the trains of the new road will run over the Bultimore and Ohio tracks lr?>m Washington to Derwood, Md., a few miles west of Rockville. The contractors on the cut off on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad between Ad mnstown and Washington Junction have reached a point near Washington Junction, where it requires a great deal of blasting of calico rock, and progress is slow. The blasting that is being done Is at the point where the new cut off connects with the Metropolitan branch of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. Parrotlam. To the Editor of The Evening Star: The suggestion of Elizabeth 8t??uart in yesterday's issue of your valuable paper relative to relegating sufferers from noisy, screeching parrots to St. Elizabeth's In sane Asylum indicates a character of such selfishness, utter want of fellow feeling and self-Indulgence at the expense of others as to warrant the assertion that the said writer herself needs a medical physician's care. She no doubt would harbor roosters, pigs and cows In the back yard, If it was not for fear of the Police Court. Thanks to Mr. A. L Sinclair of the Dis trict attorney's office, to whom many com plaints of parrot annoyances have been made, his recommendations to the Commis sioners to pass police regulations covering this class of offenders may relieve us, otherwise the suggestion of a previous sufferer to publish the name and number of such offenders should be adopted.

The Hyattsville Republican Club met Wednesday evening at the office of Mr. Arthur Carr, justice of the peace. The newly elected president of the club, Mr. Michael Karney, presided, and Mr. H. J. Moffutt acted as secretary. The educa tional committee submitted its report to the club, and stated that it will soon have prepared a ticket similar to those to be used at the coming election. A meeting of ladies and gentlemen inter ested in the coming reunion of veterans of C-ompany B, 1st Maryland Cavalry, confed erate service, to be held the 10th instant at Masonic Hall, this place, held a meeting at the town magistrate's office last evening. Dr. Henry Dorsey was chosen as chairman and Mr. Arthur Carr served as secretary. A committee was appointed, consisting of Miss Elinore Lewin and Mesdames Leakin, Brooks, Hlckey and L/atimer, to look after the entertaining feature of the reunion. A committee was also appointed, composed of J. F. Hickey, L. O. Weissmann and C. A. M. W. Wells, to arrange the musical program and secure a band. At the regular meeting of the county commissioners at Marlboro' Tuesday it was ordered that Harriet Green and John Thomas, both of Bowie district, be granted a pension, payable out of the surplus of 1901; that John Weesner be paiu the sum of $150, amount due for land taken as pub lic road in Kent district, payable out of the bond money of 1888 by warrant on R.

Lynching Increase* Crime. To the Editor of Tha Evening Star: I Join with the few who are demanding that the savages who burn negroes alive should be summarily squelched. The dis grace falls on the entire nation, but chief ly on the south. If we except two western states and a few savage tribes, the south is the only country on earth where this crime Is committed, either with or without warrant of law. There must be at least twenty nations inhabited by negroes, but in none except ours is such enormity tol erated. So the plea of necessity falls to the ground. But my chief purpose in writing this letter Is in behalf of the white women. It is a fact that savage cruelty on one side invariably' begets the same on the other, and the more burnings the more ravlsh lngs. Fewer cases were reported a year ago than now, for of late I have read tnem in every day's paper. But some burnings may be on false charges, for one has only to accuse a negro, nowadays, to get him killed. In the eighteenth century there were 1?9 crimes punishable with death in England; but It was found that crime In creased the more and the death penalties were nearly all abolished. Even the most i bigote?d have learned that the inquisition multiplies heretics, Just as mob violence increased the abolitionists, before the war, and I recall in my own experience how the bitter and unjust attacks of trades union ists turned my friendship for them into enmity. The cruelties of the Spaniards, in the Netherlands, so exasperated the Prot estants that they, in turn, became as cruel as their foes, and history is full of similar illustrations. What are the husbands, brothers and sons of the south thinking of that they should shut their eyes to what history so plainly teaches and persist in Increasing the peril of their women folks?

SHABBY TREATMENT OF LAWSON 'Many Yachtsmen Hope Shamrock II Will Lift the Cup. WHOLE MATTER OVERDONE Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. NEW YORK, September 5, 1901. For the first time in the history of yacht ing there wiH probably be few tears shed in case Sir Thomas Upton lifts the cup this year. This is probably due to a variety of causes, chief of which may be mentioned the feeling that the New York Yacht Club has been guilty of snobbishness and excluslve ness in dealing with Lawson's Independ ence, and the additional fact that Sir Thomas Lipton proved such a good loser upon the occasion of the visit of Shamrock I. Among the professional yachtsmen the feeling manifests itself in the expression of the idea that even If Shamrock II does carry off the prize it will only stimulate a revival of interest in yacht racing and re sult in-the sending of cup hunters to Eng land every year until the cup Is again re turned to America. Should the New York Yacht Club now lose possession of the cup half of the peo ple who have neither lost nor won any money on the yacht races will undoubtedly exclaim, "Served them right!" Judged from the New York Yacht Club standpoint, the failure to give the Independence a fair show may be justified, but the majority of people are not sea lawyers or yachtsmen, for that matter. They are interested mere ly in having the best American boat de fend the cup, and they care little whether the owner of that boat ever sees the In side of the New York Yacht Club. The X. Y. Vncht Club's Exclusiveness. In passing it may be mentioned that It is not the easiest thing In the world for a visitor to the city to see the Inside of the New York Yacht Club unless he has a speaking acquaintance with some wealthy yachtsman. The New York Yacht Club is probably the most exclusive club in the world, and stories are common of the way In which old sea dogs who have secured in vitations to the club, as well as newspaper men In search of information, are snubbed by the new rich yachtsmen of the metropo lis. Of course, there are many members of the organization who stand as types of true American gentlemen and yachtsmen, | but on the other hand there are some mem | bora of the New York Yacht Club whose | room would be preferable to their company in any club in the country, and whose sole qualification for membership seems to have been the possession of vast sums of inherited or quickly acquired wealth. Among the non-yachting, non-racing pub lic there appears to be the feeling that the America's cup business is being a little overdone. Fifty years ago the offering of such a cup could have been justified upon the ground that It would help to develop the speed of sailing vessels, and furnish types worthy of imitation. Just as the race tracks are supposed to help produce finer and faster breeds of horses. But inasmuch as steam has supplanted the sailing ves sels In all cases where speed Is required, and a thousand experiments could not pro duce a boat depending upon sail power ca pable of competing with the fast ocean steamers, the average man looks upon the movements of Lipton and the New York Yacht Club Is something of a fad. It is not unusual to hear the statement among business men that about the best thing that could happen would be to have Lipton capture the cup and lose It over board as the Shamrock returns to Europe. Even Betting on the Race. Most of the betting among individuals Is even, though it is not uncommon to hear of slight odds being given against the Shamrock II winning. This is due not so much to the form of the cup challenger, when contrasted with the form shown by the possible cup defenders, as to the fact that sporting men are figuring that it will be far easier to get money placed upon the American than the English boat?many persons preferring to back patriotism rath er than judgment. Were it possible for all England to be transplanted to Amer ica in time to witness the yacht races the betting would certainly be about even, with a possibility of slight odds be ing recorded In favor of the cup challenger. Of course this does not figure In the es timates of cold-blooded yachtsmen and sportsmen who back their judgment with their money. GRAXD LODGE SESSION.

Brougham told Father Mathew, the cele brated Irish temperance advocate, that he was extremely abstemious in the matter of wine. In 1844 Father Mathew amused a large party at the house of an Irish nobleman in London by hi* attempts to con vert the noble lord to teetotalism. "I drink very little wine," said Brougham; "only half a glass at luncheon, and two half glasses at dinner; and though my medical advisers told me I should increase the quantity I refused to do so." "They are wrong, my lord, for advising you to increase the quantity." said Father Mathew playfully, "and you are wrong In taking even the small quantity you mention, but I have hopes of you;" and despite the good-humored resistance of Brougham he Invested his lordship with the green ribbon and silver medal of the Total Abstinence Society. "I'll tell you what I'll do," said Brougham. "I'll take the ribbon to the house of lords, where 1 shall be sure to meet old Lord the worse for liquor. and I'll put It on him." This announce ment was received with much laughter bjr the company, for the peer referred to was notorious for his deep potations. A few evenings later Brougham met him In the house of lords. "Lord said he, "I have a present from Father Mathew for you." and he passed the ribbon and medal rapidly over the old peer's head. "Then I'll tell you what It Is, Brougham. By God. I'll keep sober from this night!" ex claimed the other, and to the great araase ment of all his friends he remained faith ful to fcis vow.
