Tbrss Occasions for Civic Uplift. Within the next month three notable n casions will be afforded the citizens of the District for an expression of the spirit that is making of this a notable com munity Rarely indeed has such a' com bination been presented for the uplift of the local citizenship and for the inspira tion of residents of the capital to continue vigorously their worker evolving an .ideal .city. On the 'J8th of this month services will be held in the - Capitol building in connection with the removal of the re mains of >laj. Pierre L'Eofant. the de signer of Washington, from their long resting place on the Digges farm to Ar lington cemetery On the 3d of May a statue of the late Alexander R. Shepherd, one-time governor of the District of"Co lumbia. erected by the citizens of Wash ington in grateful recognition of .his in valuable services, will be unveiled in front of the municipal building. On the 8th of May representative citizens of the District will tender a dinner to President Taft in his capacity as national and local executive. Thus, within a brief time, honor will be pa*d to the man who planned old Wash ington. then to the foremost builder of the new Washington; and shortly after ward to the President, who will influence strongly the future Washington Each of these occasions will doubtless he turned to advantage in the stimulation not only of the pride of Washingtonians in their city, but of the interest of the people of the country at large in Wash ington as the city .of all the country, as the seat of government and ds tfce munic ipal expression of the ?American ideal. In honoring the meinory of L'Enfant, Congress, in efTect. will recognize the obligation to carry out the work so mag nificently planned, so inspiratlonally con ceived. so harmoniously Jn keeping with the spirit of the republic and with which the name of the first President is insep arably associated. In honoring the mem ory of Shepherd, the people of Washing ton will, under the inspiration of his ex ample of tremendous energy devoted un selfishly and unsparingly to the. city's welfare, attack wUh fresh- vigor and en thusiasm ? the task Of 'making Washing ton the model city- The dinner to Presi dent Taft will provide an opportunity to acquaint him personally with some of the representative men of the District of Columbia, and at the same time afford an occasion for an expression of his views regarding the proper methods of bring ing the Capital city fully up to the ideal standard. The influence of these three occasions will be widespread and potent for good. Each member of the community must necessarily be quickened lp litis impulies as a participant in the important work of city evolution. After these days have been in their various ways celebrated it should be easier than ever to enlist in any public enterprise the services of all the people of all classes and degrees of re sponsibility in any work making for the betterment of conditions and fojr the de velopment of the District. ii ?' t aasi i < i.i ii An Italian Charitable Need. In another part of The Star today Is printed a letter which calls attention to a worthy charity, the occasion for which resulted from the recent catastrophe in Sicily and Calabria. Mr. Monroe sets forth in plain terms the facts of the case and appeals through The Star for assistance for the maintenance of the orphans of the educators who lost tjielr lives In the earthquake. This presents an opportunity for those who desire to ren der practical assistance in a specific di rection. which will doubtless be grasped by many. An artress denies that she ever said she wanted to retire from the stage and darn hosiery. Reference to darned hos iery sounds too niuch Ilk* a reminiscence of days when the ability to walk from one engagement to the next was an es sential thaspian accomplishment. There is not much patience in these modern days with the style of statesman who regards the tariff as a plum tree to be shaken with care When the tarHl bill 1s completed the credit will be pretty well divided up, ar?d so will the blame. Bryan and His Leadership. Through all snarls, and divisions, and the fiercest factional warfare, Jefferson and Jackson remain the patron saints of the democratic party Clevelandites and Bryanites alike conjure with those magic | namet. Little-doe* it matter that the C level and ites contend that if alive the sage ? of Montlcello and the sage of the Hermi tage would side with them. As earnestly do the Bryanites reply that their hero carries the banner which the Virginian and the Tennesseean once carried. And when the Sth of January and the 13th of April arrive both factions are ready with praises of the glorious leaders and the glorious days departed. In New York last night the Jefferson anniversary was celebrated by the Na tional Democratic Club of that town A distinguished company sat down to din ner. and several stirring speeches followed the repast. Among those present were Judfon Harmon. Governor of Ohio; Thomas R Marshall./Governor of-Indiana, and George E. Chamberlain. United States senator from Oregon; Richard C'roker. Alton IJ- Parker. Charles. F. Murphy, leader of Tammany Hall: Mor gan J O Brien and D Cady Herrick. Regrets were received from Mayor Mc <"Iellan. Gov. Johnson of Minnesota. Wil liam Jennings Bryan. Gov. Swanson of Virginia Gov. Burke of South Dakota. President Woodrow Wilson of Princeton. <"hamp Clark. Senator Culberson of Tex as. Representative Rainey of Illinois and August Belmont. Note the name of William Jennings Bryan Wh^n thi6 dinner was first an nounced it was stated that Mr. Bryan had been passed over New York-demo crats. we were-told.'wete tired of the man apd his leadership, and had taken this means of communicating >t he fact to the country. Was-that true? and did demo cratic comment, on the slight cause the club to think again and send Mr. Bryan an invitation? At any rate, he seems to hgve received a card, and to have replied to it. Note also that Mr. Clark of Florida, who tn the House the other day declared that he was very tired of Mr. Bryan's leadership, ha* been called upon by the lower house of the Florida legislature to .appear at Tallahassee and explain that more or less treasonable utterance. Mr. Bryan still looks good to the rank and file of the Peninsula state d?mocracy. What may be called the Bryan problem is far and away the most difficult problem the democratic party of recent years has had to deal with- The man has a power seldom shown in our history. His hold on his followers after three defeats for the presidency is extraordinary. Not a man of them has received an office at his hands, or more than a smile and a hand shake and the distinction at home of "standing very clcse" to the peerless leader What is the solution? Mr. Bryan can not be clubbed to the rear. Neither can he be frozen out of his place. In terri tory reliably democratic he cannot be | attacked with impunity by men calling themselves democrats, and elsewhere a threat to ignpre fiim is promptly re sented. If success with him in the lead is impossible, success without him in the ranks is equally so. Why not a commit tee, in this day of committees, to take the whole matter under advisement? Tammany need not figure prominently in Its membership, although New York is a plv.otal state. The Mississippi. There should be no difficulty about ar ranging for a visit of the battleship Mis sissippi to Natchez for the ceremony of e41ver service presentation, as requested by the members of Congress from Missis sippi. Louisiana. Arkansas and Tennes see, provided there is enough water in the river to float, the vessel safely. It is to the interest of the government to acquaint the people of the states with the new navy. The local desire to see a modern sea monster is a wholesome impqlse. the gratification of which is certain to pro duce a patriotic spirit on the part of large numbers of people who have few oppor tunities to witness the tokens of national" power. Of course the function of a large war ship Is to remain at Eea, in a position of readiness to defend the coast in case of a foreign attack. Only in a remote emergency, a last resort of resistance, would so pon derous a vessel ag the Mississippi be sent up one of' the rivers. That, however, should not bar the use of a type of the new navy for inspirational and edu cational purposes whenever possible. Visits are often paid by these ships to seaports, not in the course of practical cruising, but to give the people an oppor tunity to inspect fighting machines of the first class. As long as the United States is to remain a naval power it should be the endeavor of the government j to cause the residents of as many sec tions as possible to feel that they are per sonal participants in the enterprise. In this present case the occasion is exceptional. The people of a great state. | which has given its name to one of the most powerful ships of the navy, desire that the vessel shall be sent up the mighty river of the same name to receive their gift. They have no seaport, though their state fronts on the gulf. Only by acceding to the request just preferred can they be gratified in their natural and commendable desire to welcome the vessel.' ? ?? ? ' More Trouble in Turkey. This latest Turkish turmoil appears to be in the nature of a re-revolutlon. an effort on the part of the reform party to do over again the work that was done a few mdnths ago and undone secretly by the sultan. It Is evidently successful, to tha extent that Abdul Hamid has ac ceeded to the demands of the mutinous troops and a new ministry has been in stalled. It will now remain to be demon strated whether this second revolution wilffbe of permanent effect. Abdul Hamid yielded so easily to the first revolt of the young TurKS party that it might have been suspected he would ? seek to undermine the new political structure by intrigue. This. It is now plafn. he has done. A master of craft, he adjusted himself to the new situation and corrupted the representatives of the revo lutionary party who had been placed in authority. Tyrannies even more harsh than those practiced under the old regime were quietly Invoked to reduce the in dependent spirits of the new order to .subjection. The world beyond heard little of this, and It was generally believed that ? Turkey was moviitg on toward political emancipation. In All likelihood the triumphant troops have conveyed to Abdul Hamid a dis tinct Warning that he cannot continue indefinitely to trifle with tiie revolutionary spirit, which, having been once thoroughly aroused, is not to be quelled by recourse to the ancient methods. His removal from power is not in the least degree improb able, and in the light of this latest flare up of the independent forces his physical extinction would not be at all unlikely if he should persist in playing his old game of deceit. Perhaps Japan would like to trade off a lot of the bric-a-brac so much admired In this country for a few submarines ? Mombasa may as well lay In a supply of fireworks and organize its reception committees. ' There is a disposition in arranging the lumber schedule to let posterity look -out for the splinters. Farmers are waiting to see whether i the price of wheat is a part of the up [lift program. At all events Emma Goldman is not quite so homeless as ex-President Castro. Jury Duty. A dispatch from San Francisco shows that, at last!,* jury to try Patrick Cal houn. the trtre<? railway president there, has been secured. The case was called six weeks ago, end presumably it has been found most difficult to fill the jury box with men qualified under the law and the court practice to serve Here is the old question again. And a mopt embarrassing one it Is. The demand everywhere is for the elimination of the unworthy, and the substitution of the worthy, njjin for jury duty. We may be lieve that the court officers do their best to meet the public demand. But it is no easy matter. In this day of newspapers and other forttrs of publicity men of in telligence and leading eafclly disqualify .themselves for jury service by following current events. Every local happening of importance Is chronicledl and every man interested in his home community reads the news. In this way opinions are formed, and in this'way the choicfe of Jurymen Is narrowed to a fine, and some times to a dangerous, point. We need not wonder that men of sub stance and activity?the very kind most desirable for this service to the public try to shirk. The duty calls for a heavy sacrifice?now in the matter of money, now In that of health. A business man must withdraw his eye from his own af fairs for weeks. This counts against him. even if his subordinates are competent and faithful. No eye can .take the place of the master's eye. And then as to health. Jury duty ex tending over a long period changes while it lasts the average man's whole mode of life. He lacks exercise He breathes all day the atmosphere of a courtroom crowded with Tom, Dick and Hairy. He is Ehut off from the public at night. His reading is limited. His patience is tried in a thousand ways. And at the end of six weeks or two months, or even a longer period, he is sent to the jury room to digest a great mass of evidence, a long and often technical charge by the judge, and an assortment of passionate declama tionfc by trained lawyers. Only the hard iest of constitutions go through such an ordeal unharmed. The effect may not show at once, but it will, in some, show after awhile. The Cooper murder trial at Nashville consumed two months. This Calhoyn trial may consume even more time. It is the case of a man of the highest business and social prominence charged with a great crime?that of bribing a public offi cial Eminent lawyers appear. The state is well represented, and the attorneys for the defense are among the pick of the Pacific slope. It is certain, therefore, that the-men who have been chosen to try the case are booked for a long and trying siege. If they are men of affairs their affairs will suffer, and. unless very tough physically theytare likely to pay a physical penalty for the radical change and severe strain imposed by their as signment. Mr. Bonaparte's recent utterances are those of a man who feels a considerable burdeh removed from his shoulders and Is correspondingly li^ht-hearted. Of course, no mercy will be shown in the efforts of the other clubs to drag the name of the AVashingtons down from the head of the list. The chances are that Mr. Roosevelt will come back ift shape to give health hints to those who have been predicting his annihilation by the African climate. There is a cold clammy suspicion con stantly hovering about that when the tar iff is cdbiplete Mr. Bryan will not be pleased with it. What pugilism appears to need is an umpire system that can compel the game to go on. * ?? April showers Join with a number of critics in an utter lack of respect for modern Easter finery. shooting; stars. PY PHILANDER JOHNSON. A Resemblance Noted. "What do you think of tariff revision?" "Well." answered Farmer Corntossel, "it strikes me that the tariff is a go*d deal like the weather. No matter what kind you get. it's pretty sure to be bad for somebody's business." Eccentricity. Again the April shower draws nigh. Again the south winds blow. And nrat we vaguely wonder why It looks so much like snow. The Rising Generation. "BHggins is always repeating something his small boy said." "Yes," answered Miss Cayenne. "That boy must be a wonder. He is the only person I know of whose opinions Mr. Bliggins regards as more important than his own. Contrast. "That prima donna has a wonderfully sweet voicei," remarked the operagoer. "Yes," answered the manager, sadly. "She sings well. But you should hear the cold harshness of her speaking voice when she comes to discuss salary." "Fine clothes on some people," said Uncle Eben, "is like de feathers on an ostrich. Dar ain' no doubt about de qual ity. but de bird wears 'em in suet* a ridlc'lous way!" The Universal Fad.

To catch their trains, Youths hurry by, With pantlets on. Intent .to try A Marathon. So grows the craze! The stars sweep by Before our gaze Across the sky. The cosmic sport Will be. anon, A mighty sort Of Marathon! Government by Commission. Fr^m tbr Dulutb Herald. The passage of the Works bill provid ing that cities in Minnesota now or ganized under the charter system may adopt the commission plan of government as first exploited by Galveston. Tex., and later by some few other cities, will probably result in a number of Minne sota cities experimenting with this form ef government. The commission plan of government has made a good deal, of noise in the world. It has been applied very successfully in a few instances, and it has been heralded by many as the ideal plan of municipal government. Whetliei the government by <-ommission plan in cities will grove a panacea for all our municipal ills is a matter to be de termined by a much wider experience, however. Noiseless Fourth. From tbe Chicago Rc< ord-Herald. The Cleveland city council has passed an ordinance making it unlawful for any person to fire any gun. cr explode any firearm, or set off any kind of fireworks, from cannon to firecrackers*, within the city. We predict a comparatively safe and sane Fourth for Cleveland Much Sickness for Grandma. From tbe Portland (Ore.t Telegram.

President Taft can probably keep a cow all right on his present salary, but he should beware ot the extravagance of keeping chickens Who Did ThisP From the Omaha Bee. If the habit of dropping $10,000 bills on the plate at Washington churches' be comes chronic, it may be necessary to put the collectors under bond. The Expanding Desert. From tb? South Bcud News.

EverytftnSing forSummer Comfort amid Sport HE DAYS for the spring cleaning and renovating are at hand, and with them come the planning and fixing of the home as coo! and inviting as possible for the long, hot summer. Carpets and rugs must come up and be replaced with parquetry floors or fragrant mat ting- Heavy curtains and hangings must give way to airy Swiss muslins and madras. Upholstered furniture must be stored for the summer and in its place rattan, reed, birch, hickory and prairie grass furniture must be used.

Particularly broad is the variety of styles in the display of Chairs, Rockers, Settees and Tables, ? of which the well furnished sum mer home requires so many.
