World's who has itrrunuc steciat. Washington. Sept. 3. Spclal Fair Commissioner John liarrett, ben attacked sharply hy th Xew Tork livening Post for alleged party dlslojalty, writes that paper a letter descrlblnc his appointment by Governor Francis and de fending hii political course. Mr. Barrett r-as In his letter: "Noting first the conclusion and climax of the editorial, I find that with some measure of sarcasm and a lirgcr measure of In accuracies you say In part: " 'Finally, th administration has appointed him (Harrctt) Commissioner Gen eral for. Asia and Australia in behalf pf the Ft. Louis Imposition In JStK. Thus does of' fire feck the man.' "Tho truth of th matter Is this: The administration ha'd no more to do with thfs appointment than the Evenlnc Post Tills responsible commission was tendered me without my solicitation, solely hy the St. IouIs Directors of the World's Fair through their President, ex-Secretary of ths Interior David it Francis, who himself Is a prominent Democrat. Quoting the words of President Francis, they offered me this post because of my 'lone; diplomatic ex perience In Asia and extended acquaintance with Asiatic and Pacific peoples, politics, commerce and public men.1 Pardon me, therefore, for suggesting that possibly there mny be more truth than you Intended In your laconic conclusion, "Thus docs the office peek the man.' Wlie-rc the lnrr Coram From. "Still more, tho Louisiana Purchase Ex position Company and not tho Government pays the salary and expenses of this posi tion. My only connection In this matter with the administration, unless some new arrangements not now contemplated are made, will be that which comes through tho general interest or President McKInley nnd the hearty co-operation of the State mid otl er departments. "Referring baric now to tho Introduction of your editorial, jou say: '.Mr. John Barrett has at last got an office and thus saved the administration from tho reproach of being ungrateful. and again: 'His friends' . -began mentioning him for various offices' from Minister down to Consul, but he Ins had to strve by stand ing and walling until now.' "Stranfjely enough, the only truth In the nbove Is again unintended. Such "friends' tis the Kvenlng Post hate repeatedly men tioned me for numerous offices and It may he becatis-e of my 'mentloners' that I hate been so cruelly neglected. "The rest of the tiuth which Is unstated In the editorial is thus: "(a) The administration has not been, and is not, under any obligations to me. I sup ported Mr. McKInley In the last campaign because I believed in the man and In his principles. And, It I may Interpolate the re mark hre, I was more consistent and hon est than tho Evening Post when it supported Mr. Bryan and his free-lher theories be cause of Its bitter anli-McKlnley feeling. "(b) For no olllee whatever In the gift of the President have I been n candidate except for that of United States Minister to China In case Mr. Conger should volun tarily retire or bo promoted, and In this movement the Initiative was taken hy lead ing chambers of commerce and business Interests in all parts of the country ir.d by Senators and Congressmen familiar with my record In Asia as Minister to Slam and with my sincere efforts through many years to build up our commerce with China and the far East. IndulEra In Sarcasm. 7c) In April last I was appointed one of the five delegates of the United States to tho International American Conference to meet In Mexico In October. Hence you are even In error In the matter of my already having an office, although It is indeed re markable that you should have overlooked It or not found In It a supreme danger to our peace with South America. This high Government commission given me by Pres ident McKInley was. moreover, entlrelj- un sought and unexj-ected, as your Washington correspondent can readily confirm. It Is my modest hope that In co-opcratlon with my more distinguished colleagues of the dele gation I may be of some service to mr country and eventually reach the high standards of the Evening Post. "(d) In contrast to tho Evening; Post's Insinuation that I am a chronic office seeker and dependent upon office for n liv ing and support. I would. In all modesty, sub-nit that through the means of hard work and unremitting application, the value of which I learned In the days when, as a Vermont boy, I had to work my own way and pay my awn expenses through Dart mouth College, It has been possible for me to develop legitimate private business Inter, ens and connections that make me Inde pendent of worry about getting any of the various offices' which the Evening Post so charmingly pictures my 'friends' as men tioning for me. Of the twelve years that have elapsed since I cradunte.1 fmm ,.oi. lege, four only hnvo been spent In Govern ment service, nnd I resigned that office to give way to an appointee of President McKInley." .Mobile nnd Ohio Chun-res Hail- road ComiiiisMiincrs Hear Ar- jiimeiils on I!iid. .Junc- lion Cro'i'.iii.r Ca:-e.

Henry Burghause, employed at the Illinois Central roundhouse-, was badly scalded by steam In an accident yesterday morning. He was oiling a locomotive when he acci dentally turned on a steam cock. He was enveloped In steam and scalded from head to foot before iio was rescued. Ho was taken to St. Mary's Hospital. D'-spite the break In prices, room sentiment was very much mixed. The factors which swayed the early market were weak cables, olliclal reports of general rains In Texas Saturday, with scattering rains. In that State again jesterday. larger 1M0 1W1 crop figures by Hester than expected, a "top In. -ivy" long Interest and absence of sup porting orders. I!y 12.30 o'clock prices ha1 broken eeiulvi lent to 2." and 30 points from the clejslng quo tations at the end of business on Friday, when the exchange closed for the triple Ilnr Day holidays. This sharp break was due to general liquidation and heavy shorts selling and bears assuming an aggressive attitude em this pressure and absence of sup port. The day's news was mostly bearish and the break was accele-rated by forced liquidation by traders who had overbought on last week's sharp rise, many stop loss or ders being executed by brokers on the way dow n. I.onc Interest Congested. The long interest has become somewhat congested in the tendency to exaggerate the crop damage In the Atlantic and Gulf States, and expected a too low- average con dition on the Government crop report to day. Apprehension, with later expectations of a 10 per cent decrease in condition for the last month, which had been current most of last week would not be realized, and heavy Southern selling against receipts of new- cotton and efforts to liquidate by local and New- Orleans bulls were what broke the Liverpool market Saturday and again to-day. These apprehensions were ful filled, as the Government report, published at noon. Instead of showing a loss of fully 10 points, reported the deterioration as equivalent to not quite G points. On the publication of these figures there was re newed general selling;, which broke prices all around about 10 points further. Then the market rallied on covering of shorts 5 to C points. Market Continued Irreixnlar. Tho market continued very Irregular dur ing the afternoon. Various constructions were placed on the Government crop report by the trading clement, and those who were caught short of the market by the recent rNe and fought the advance the closing days of last week were naturally the ones who professed the greatest disap pointment over the Government's figures. They put out fresh lines of shorts and ham mered the market whenever an opportunity offered, nnd were aggressive on that side In order to close (he market as low as possible and to Influence Liverpool as much as pos sible. A study of the Government report shows that the condition in Texas, even up to the 21st of August, which is the date from which the Government report was compiled. Is 30 per cent, which equaled the poorest condition In the history of that State, which was ZS In 1S95 and 15 per cent lower than In the season of ISM and 13 points below the mean low average condition of the crop In that State the past ten years. Also the condition In Arkansas Is 61 per cent, which is about the poorest on record. Since August 21 the crop In the Atlantic States and also the Gulf States was seri ously damaged, as all the weekly State crop reports of last week show, as a con sequence of the hurricane and excessive rains which swept In from the Gulf from New- Orleans and Mobile. The market closed easy, with quotations 29 to 36 points lower, as compared with Fri day's closing prices. 4tr -JBt," - k K s , V - ,i$7SB.V- 4;m I it W$fc A IDA CONQUEST. 5 -" s-S-r "il r- .

But what Tommyrot all these announcements are that Drew never worn a uniform on the stage before. How about "The Passing Regiment," at Daly's, or his performance of Eric In "The S-ruire"? In appearance he made a typical British cavalry officer and he gave to his per formance a tenderness and pathos which he has had no chance to show since ths yeir that he played in "Rosemary." To tell the plot of "The Second In Com mand" would only ruin a prospective pleas ure, but Mr. Drew never in his life has won an audience so completely as he did In the finale of the third act. The scene is In the officer's quarters just before the regiment starts for South Africa. Already the sol diers aro falling in when the Colonel re ceives a telegram, and. after reading It, hands It to Bingham. "I have bad news for you. BInks. old man," he says. "Vou are not to go with us. The orders have Just come. An experienced cavalry officer must remain here and you have been picked out." "I know his real reason." cries Bingham. "It's it's because I'm such a confounded duffer." The band strikes up, the good-bys are said and the curtain falls on Bingham sob bing his heart out In the empty room. There were times) In his earlier scenes where Mr. Drew- once or twice had seemed a nine too comment, a trifle too dashing worked at a high pressure for the purpose for such a blundering person as Bingham I of keeping the flow back.

To Ida Conquest belongs second honors, for, as the vacillating heroine with two lovers, she was cast for a thankless, yet at the same timo most difficult part. She never looked more charming nor has she at any time acted with more power. Guy Standing made a superb figure as Major Anstruther, and his acting was fully on a par with his fine performance in "Diplomacy" last spring. Ida Vernon was a thoroughly well-starched Dowager, and MIs3 Carrie Keeler, a divinely gowned In genue, who fairly shared the comedy honors with H. Hassard Short. Mr. Short scored a hit as one of those "silly-ass" youngsters with which most FngiLsh plays, abound. In the last act he and Miss Keeler uncon sciously Introduced a plagiarism from "The Wife." It was a pure accident, and the clever way In which Mr. Short brought Miss Keeler out of her dilemma won him a round of applause, which, for the mo ment, almost broke up the play. It will be remembered that in "The Wife" Charles Dickson and Louise Dillon had a scene where they experimented with a pleca of smoked glass, with the result that both A telegram received this afternoon by W.
