An art loan exhibit, to which the public was cordially welcomtd, was held at the Metropolitan M. E. Church on last evening, under the auspices of the Metropolitan Bible class. The lecture room of the church was filled to overflowing with a large and appreciative audience. The room was adorned with works of art, and a fine col lection of painted china, bronze and clay work was on exhibition In the parlor. The special feature of the evening's en tertainment was a chalk talk by Mr. Felix Mahoney, cartoonist. In introducing Mr. Mahoney, Prof. Oberholser, teacher of the class, referred to the Interest manifested in this line of entertainment and assured those present that the literary committee had made no mistake in selecting an artist. Mr Mahoney rtsponded briefly to Mr. Oberholser's complimentary remarks, and then proceedtd with his lecture. He kept the audience in a good humor all the time, and frequently provoked hearty applause. His closing sketches were of Uncle Sam to suit all nationalities, among which were the Jew the Irishman and the Negro. The Nordica Mandolin Club, under the directorship of Prof. Holt, furnished sev eral choice selections, during which refresh rmnts were served. The paintings on exhibition represented many well-known Washington artists. Among those contributing to the display were: Max Weyl, James Henry Moser, Miss A. M. Reading, K. I?e Grand Johnston.

Throughout a (treat nation of eighty millions It is a desperate struggle to secure even a recognition for a new article, to sny nothing Tif achieving popu lar favor, and yet within oue year Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, the new catarrh cure, has met with such success that today It can be found in every dtug ?tore throughout the Unit d States and C<na<Ja To be sure, a large amount of advertising was necessary in the first Instance to bring the remedy to the attention of the public, but every one famil iar with the subject knows that advertising alone never made any article permanently successful. It must have In addition absolute, undeniable merit, and this the new catarrh cure certainly possesses In a marked degree. Physicians, who formerly depended upon In halers, sprays and local washea or ointments, now use Stuart's Catarrh Tablets because, as one of the most prominent stated, these tablets contain. In pleasant, convenient form, all the really efficient catarrh remedies, such as red gum, blood root and similar antiseptics. They contain no cocaine nor opiate, and are given to little children with entire safety and benefit. L?r. J. J. Keltlger of Covington, Ky., says: "I Buffered from catarrh In my head anil throat every fall, with stoppage of the nose and irritation In the throat affecting my voice, and often extending to the stomach, causing catarrh of the stomach. I bought a fifty-cent package of Stuart's Catarrh Tsbl-ts at my druggist's, carried them In my pock?t and used them fslthfully. and the way In which they cleared my head and throat was cer tainly remarkable. 1 had no catarrh last winter and spring, and consider myself entirely free from any catarrhal trouble." Mrs. Jerome KJllson of Wheeling, W. Va., writes: "I suffered from catarrh nearly my whole life, and last winter my two children also suffered from catarrhal colds and sore throat so much they were out of school a large portion of the winter. My brother, who was cured of catarrhal dcafuess hy using Stuart's Catarrh Tableta. urged me to try them ao much that I did so, and am truly thankful for what they have done for myself and my chil dren. 1 always keep a box of the tableta In the bouse, and at the first appearanee of a cold or sore throat we nip It In the bad. and catarrh la no longer a household affliction with as."

Stuart Co., Marshall, HJCfc. ia6aWUS-2t POLITICS ELIMINATED Mr. Macfarland's View of: District Government. ADDRESS TO STUDENTS THE COMPACT OF 1878 AND ITS PURPOSE. The Cementing of Separate Estab lishments Into One System Commended. Mr. H. B. F. Macfarland. president of the board of District Commissioners, lectured yesterday afternoon before the school of comparative Jurisprudence and diplomacy of the Columbian University, taking for his subject "The Government of the District of Columbia." The audience in the as sembly hall was a large and attentive one, the students especially taking a deep Inter est in the Instructive dissertation. Mr. Macfarland began by quoting from an opinion of the Supreme Court of the I nited States handed down by Justice Brewer in the case of Eckloff against the District of Columbia, thus defining the act of Con gress of June 11, 1S78, providing a perma nent form of government for the District: It is declared by its title to be an act to provide "a permanent form of govern ment for the District." The word "perma- ; nent" is suggestive. It implies that prior J systems had been temporary and provi sional. As permanent it is complete in it self. It is the system of government. The powers which are conferred are organic powers. We look to the act itself for their extent and limitations. It is not one act in a series of legislation, and to be made to fit into the provisions of the prior legis lation; but it is a single, complete act, the outcome of previous experiments, and the final judgment of Congress as to the sys tem of government which should obtain. It is the constitution of the District, and its grants of power are to be taken as new and independent grants, and expressing in themselves both their extent and limita tions." Considered Together. "This act." said Mr. Macfarland. "em bodying the 'compact of 1878' between the Congress and the citizens of the District of Columbia, is to be taken with the pro vision of the Constitution giving the Con gress power 'to exercise exclusive legisla tion in all cases whatsoever' over the fed eral district and the acts beginning in 18-'?1 for the creation of a judiciary. Together, they provide go\*ernment divided according to our custom into legislative, executive and judicial departments. Congress has. of course, no executive or judicial functions in the District of Columbia. It has con stituted here, under its power to legislate, an executive government and a judiciary, just as it has created similar departments of government in the territories. "The action of Congress in this regard is somewhat analogous to that under which it has created executive departments of the national government and the national judiciary. , "The Supreme Court has decided (Barnes case. 01. U S., 5M? that the District of Co lumbia is a municipal corporation proper, as distinguished from a corporation estab lished as an agency of the government cre ating It. This and similar decisions were quoted by Attorney General Griggs on April 2C?. 1*08. in an opinion to the Pres ident. holding that the Commissioners, whom he terms 'the governing and execu tive body,' and the other officers and em ployes are not officers and employes of the general government of the United States, but of the District of Columbia, and. there fore, the President cannot extend the pro visions of the civil service act to the Dis trict offices. Then No Executive Head. > "Prior to 1871 there was no executive government of the District of Columbia. I There were separate executive governments for the cities of Washington, Georgetown (and until the retrocession of 1846), Alex andria and for the outlying regions of the District. Those separate governments were all abolished by the act of February i\, l,s~l establishing the first government of the District of Columbia. The present gov ernment is its successor, and the Commis- j sioners are the successors, not of the may ors of Washington, Georgetown and Alex andria, but of the governors of the District of Columbia. The city of Washington has had no government of Its own for o\er thirty years." A review of some of the important events in the history of the District was next given by the speaker. Mr. Macfarland re called the reasons for establishing a federal district, the acquisition by the national government of sovereignty from Maryland and Virginia, and of over-one-half the land from the original proprietors, which, with the money grants of Maryland and \ lr ginia, provided means for constructing the first national buildings. ; Continuing, he said: "The people of the cities of Georgetown I and Alexandria, long antedating the Dis trict of Columbia, and the city of \\ ash ineton. with the inhabitants of the rest of the District, were given full recognition as citizens of the District, and had their own governments. The national government, however, depended on the municipal ser vices provided by the citizens of the Dis trict and their street and other Improve ments. which overtaxed their resources, confining its own expenditures for the most part to the national buildings and their surroundings, except in the case of the ! aqueduct, until 1878. Sanctified by War. "Then, the civil war having sanctified the national capital by the blood and treasure spent for it, so that the long agitation for its removal west ceased, the national gov ernment for the first time assumed its gen eral obligations, as the owner of more than one-half of the real estate in the na tional capital, and in providing the first permanent general government for the D s trict of Columbia promised to pa> half Itb general expenses. ? ^ , . . "The citizens of the District of Columbia had never been required to contribute di rectly to the expenditure of the national government, although the original proprie tors indirectly had done so, and it was not. of course, the Intent of Congress that the act of 1878 should make any change in that respect. It was not to place a new obliga tion upon the citizens, but to provide for an old obligation of the national government heretofore neglected. Congress and the citizens then, as always, recognized the obvious difference between national govern ment buildings and improvements, to which the District taxpayers should contribute only like the taxpayer of the states, and strictly District objects of expenditures, to which District citizens should contribute one-half In addition to what they con tribute through the tariff and internal reve nues in common with others. ' "That the 'compact of IN18 has worked well is easily shown by comparison with District conditions before It was enacted; I and that the form of government which was provided has worked well Is easily shown by comparison with municipal con ditions elsewhere. The development and prosperity of the District since 1878, great er than In all the seventy-eight years pre ceding, and the recognition by the country that the District has had since 1878 an ab solutely honest and exceptionally efficient municipal government (leaving the service of the speaker entirely out of account, of course). Is In shining contrast with the great cities of the states and are two facts which outweigh sporadic complaints. I Politics Eliminated. "As Congress and the cltlsens foresaw and desired, the elimination of the suffrage In 1878 has eliminated politics from our municipal affairs, and this Is the only way in which a non-partisan, and therefore a business, administration, free from bribery and blackmail, can be secured. It is the only way In which, freed from the power of bosses, political machines and Jobbers in offices and contracts, the intelligent public opinion of the citizens can have full effect. "It has made the government of the Dii trict a government by public opinion, which is the only real ?elf-govfernment. At best every other place in the United States is gov erned by a partisan majority, determined on the lines of national politics, while the national capital is governed bjr all lt? citt- l 111)?m.H? Steady Growth of "The People's Tryst." Over One Thousand New Sin Inscriptions at 50 Cents per Share Written Dunn rag the Past Six Days. FJBSMSSS^^ More than one thousand new sub? scriptions to the capital stock of the Mergenthafler = Morton Basket Ma chine Company at fifty cents a share were made during the past week. There are thousands more contemplating pur chase of these shares. To these persons and to the public and to the present shareholders the officers of the Company re new their positive declaration that no subscriptions at fifty cents a share will be accepted beyond the limits of the present allotment, and that this allot ment is sufficient only to accomplish certain steps in the well defined plans of the Company's directors. The price of the next allotment wiflS not now be announced, but it w5S! be a substantial increase. Et may take effect at any time without notice, although notice will be given if possible. Nothing is more certain than that the present movement in the purchase of shares in the Mergen thaler-Horton Basket Machine Company will carry the price of these shares steadily upward, as is just and right, and distinctly to the benefit of every shareholder. The steady growth of interest in the great busi ness proposition which this Company presents jus tifies the judgment of its officers, who refused the offers of syndicates and opened their lists for popu lar co-operation. When before ? has such a strong proposition ever been offered to the on -such fair terms? The secret of the unprecedented success of the popular subscription plan for these shares is in the inherent commercial strength of the fundamental structure of the Company, and in the universal verdict that the offering to the public was fair and equitable. The notable features of this present ment are: No underwriting syndicate. No fiscal agents. Share and share alike. Every share a common share. Every share a voting share. No preferred stock, no bonds and no debts. First allotment off shares at !ow= est prices. Subsequent allotments at stead= increasing prices. This presentment Is based upon a proposition absolutely controlling an industry of which the present and immediate Thta control is acquired not by undermining business methods which prevail In nearly every large "combination" of corporate In terests, but because of property rights sustained by the strength of Sweeping Fundamental Patents Granted and supported by the United States government and th? courts. nr ?? ?jf rll PROFITS ARE OVER A YEAR, an industry the volume of which is increasing so rapidly that in seven or eight years ST WILL BE DOUBLED. Consider a moment what absolute control of such an Indastcy mean?. It means that the laws of supply un<l demand in that Industry are wholly within the province of su?-h control, regulating the prices which rule for the product by being the ONLY SOURCE OF SUPPLY. THE PROPOSITION. The proposition of the Mergenthaler-Horton Basket Machine Com pany is one of automatic machine work as opposed to hand labor, and none of the noted labor-saving machines familiar to every one ?in com pare is effectiveness and practical accomplishment with the basket making machines which this company owns and controls. THE MERGENTHAIJSR LINOTYPE, which docs the work of four or Ave men. Days a steady dividend of twenty per cent on ten mil lions of capital.

O ABut the Basket=making Machines off,]the Me rgentha Her = Horton Basket Machine Company are so efficient ai?d so perfectly automatic that with each off them ONE GflRL DOES THE WyQRK OF TWELVE MEN. ?>-th I/i addition to the great saving of labor, whl^h would commend machines as an investment to every business man and every Jhln^lng person, there is the most important fact that the Mergenthaler Horton Basket Machine Company will absolutely control the Industry **W?? employs tfce machines.

Congress, the legislative, and the Commissioners, the executive authority, are always responsive to public opinion. "This is increasingly true now that the population of the District has become so large and so permanent. Besides the 2(5.000 government employes, now practically per manent residents under the civil service re form, who, with their families, constitute about one-third of the population of the District, there are 20u,0<?0 citizens here who are not connected with the national govern ment. "There is more public spirit here than in boss-ridden cities, because it is felt that in terest in public affairs will b*> regulated by results through public opinion; hence it is that we have such a highly organized citi zenship and such abundant expression of Its views." After describing in detail the workings of the District government and its co-opera tion with Congress in presenting and for mulating legislation, including appropria tions, Mr. Macfarland concluded: "There is only one criterion for govern ment. as for men?'By their fruits ye shall know them.' The government of the Dis trict can stand this test better than any other government in this country, in spite of the imperfections found in every human system." ? Not the "Benning Road." To the Editor of Hie Evening Star: In a news item printed recently in The Star the statement was made that "the Benning road had been recently macadam ized from the termination of the combined granite block and asphalt pavement east ward to a point well beyond Deanewood." This Is a mistake of name. Benning bridge road has been macadamized to its junction with the Anacostia or river road. The "race track" road has been macadamized from its Junction with Benning bridge road to a point beyond Deanewood. Benning bridge road from the Anacostia or river road is not in an improved condi tion, and this is nearly half of the whole distance. Several complaints have been made as to the condition of this part of the road, and the writer believes that the Commissioners will make such repairs as the funds on hand?which are entirely inad equate to the purpose?will permit.
