'hose Who Usurp the Places of Farm ers at Xarket. The pirates of Center market' have been pretty wefi put out of business, and the public has reason for congratulation," remarked a policeman in the vicinity ot' Washington's big-bevislon supply h6use this morning. "The recent amended provisions of. the rules governing the market, made not long ago by the Commissioners, holding the market authorities- responsible for the space allotted to farmers, to the end that these spaces shall not be occupied by the 'pirates.' as some called them, or the 'fore stallers of the market.' as they were known to others, has assisted the police in their long and determined efforts to protect the public from imposure. "Many persons who were not farmers took advantage of securing the spaces from legitimate farmers who brought their own raised produce Into town, crowding out the farmers. These men would purchase pro duce from wholesale dealers In this city. take it to the spaces which line the street near the market, and there sell it to our housewives as freshly brought in from the farms. While the police faithfully attempt ed to do away with these impostors, and arrested them repeatedly, convictions were not so readily secured I court, as the rul ings made It necessary dhat the person so vending should be obserVed in making the purchase of the produce, as well as Its subsequent sale, and that the money should be seen to pass in each Instance, a com bination of evidence.secured only In rare Instances and with -much dillculty. "As Major Sylvester was determined to protect the public in their right to buy Iwhat was purported to be sold them, and that stale vegetables could not be sold In these spaces for fresh, his order that the *pirates' be put out of business was carried out. The practice was a fraudulent one, and not only were the people deceived, but legitimaTe farmers, many of them driving for miles to get Into the city with fresh goods, were shut out of spaces by the 'fore stallers.' Accommodations for the display and sale of fresh garden truck around the market at best are extremely limited to both seller and buyer. The city Is growing . so fast that sooner or later added terri tory will have to be given for this purpose. In addition to the lack of proper space, the present crowding of the sidewalks Is ob jectionable from the standpoint of the pub lic health, and the more or less contamina tion and exposure of the farm products, in cramped quarters. This matter, however, will In time be adjusted, but the people are now in better position to know exactly what they are buying than heretofore, and one form of 'land piracy will have been successfully attacked and routed. Thee are several reforms in the matter of han i dling our produce at this point in the c1ty which ought to be put into practice, s= when put into effect the security to the public will be even greater."

Dr. Jabes lamar Monroe Curry. who was a member of Congress before the war and later a member of the confederate congress, and'-distinguinhed as a statesman, -athor. soldier and minister of the gospel, passed away shortly before midnight af the home of his brother-it-law. Col. Connally,.Vi toria, near Asheville, N. C. Dr. Curry was a sufferer from :BrigS disease, and had been critically ill for sev eral weeks. There was an Improvement noted in his condition Wednesday, but late yesterday afternoon he began sinking and never rallied. Dr. Curry went to North Carolina several months ago, hoping that the change of climate would Improve, his shattered health. His home In Wsiftftt was at 1736 M street northwest.,. Sketch of Eis Life. Dr. Curry was the American agent of the famous Peabody and Slater educational funds, .a member of the general education board, which was incorporated by Congress several months ago with the financial-back ing of New York men of millions, and was also a member of the southern education board6 which has undertaken the erection of the Peabody Normal School for ad vanced studies by young women In the south. He. was interested deeply in all edu cational matters, especially movements for, the benefit of the south. Dr. Curry was born in Giorgia. -in 13W His activity covered a wide field of usiful nesa. He served in the Mexican War :as & private of the Texas Rangers, praeticed law in Alabama and was three times elected to the legislature of that state. In 1856 he was one of the democratic presidential electors and was sent to Congress for two terms as a. state's rights democrat. He resigned from Cangrfs on J operate with the Congress in bri=ginj -that state. He was a reoesgfto ttWlJn the confederate congress and: l 15 f s0rve&, as a lieutenant colonel of cavalry In the confederate army undersGen. J. E. John ston. Wel Known as an Educator. At the close of the civil war Dr. -Curry was elected to the presidency of Howard College, ,Alabama In 18 he was made professor of English philosophy and con stitutional law at Richmond College, Vir ginia. -e was president of the foreign mis sion board of the Southern Baptist Church from -1M= until SM, and in 1881 was ap pointed general agent of the Peabody fund. In 1890 he was elected a, trustee of the John F. SWater fund and appointed chair man of the educational committee. When Mr. Cleveland became President in 186 and sought the co-operation of leading southern men Dr. Curry was among the first upon whom his choice fell. He was tendered and accepted the position of envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to the court of Spain, and remaained abroad three years. filling the diplomatic post with credit to himself and his country. Upon his return to this country Secretary Bayard and President Cleveland wrote .him autograph letters of the most complimentary character in referenced to his diplomatic ca reer. In 1890 Dr. Curry was elected trustee of the Slater fund, and has written exten sively on the negro Question, discussing nearly every phase of it. lHe held that the granting of the franchise to the negroes when It was done was a great error, espe cially harmful to the race it was meant to help. He was a warm and powerful -advo cate of the education of the negro and of giving him the fullest civil rights. His wg in his later years has been along 'that and educational lines. He was probably more familiar with edu cational conditions and needs- in the. south than any other man, and this, combined with his executive ability, made .lim--the greatest power among southern ducators.

I believe If Mr. T21man had chillented Ed itor Gonzales in the old-fashioned way, in stead of shooting him down on the streets without notice, a tragedy would have been averted.

Why, that -grim old veteran, Cat.: Macmurdo. s0oken of In Vanity Fair, Thackeray's chef d'oeuvre, old Macmurdo, you know, gentle men, when Rawdon Crawley, thinking that he had been dishonored by Lord StOyne, called upon Mac for his friendly ofilce, wanted to know If there was no way out of It, and finally linding that Crawley's sus picions were not based on sufficient ground, prevented a fight. Oh, yes, in nine cases out of ten a duel could be averted, even If the law allowed it. "Some, of course, dould not, and this re minds me of the McCarthy-Mordecai duel, still fresh in memory. That duel could not have been prevented by all the courts of honor In the universe. There was' no ne cessity for these men to show that they were brave. They had both sought -the 'bubble reputation at the cannon's mouth,' eid both obtained it, but there was no 40cape from a duel when young Mordecai struck McCarthy with the idea of! humil lating him, in the opinion of eieryman in Virginia.

There were! some condities about It.

Famous Encounters. "Look at some of the famous duels in American history. There is the affair be tween Jonathan Cilley of Maine and Will iam . Graves, in which Cilley was shot dead. He was from such a. northern lati tude that he would only have had to travel a short distance to find himself among the blue noses of Canada. Graves was from Kentucky. Look at the duel between Dave Broderick and Judge Terry, which occurred In California. and in which Broderick fell the victim. He was a New York man. An other famous encounter of world-wide his tory was the fight between Lieutenants Barron and Decathri. Barron wasi a Vir ginian, and though Decatur was born -in Maryland, he was of sturdy Newi Engiand stock. The American .people are not through with lamenting that duel yet. It might have been- prevented. That duel, by the way, did not take place at Bladensburg, an it is generally believed.
