(ENGLISH "RED-TAPE.*' EVERYTHING GOVERNMENTAL DONE BY STRICT FORM. No Deviation from Traditional Procedure Permitted--Efficiency of the Army Seriously Impaired at Times by This—Examples Where Exactitude was Demanded at a Cost of Truth. It seeino that Dickens' satire on governmental forms portrayed in the i trials of going through the "Circum locution Office " has now borne fruit in reformation, if the following, from the London Glohe, is not overdrawn : i A month or two ago the command- ! I ing officer of a volunteer corps, desir ; ing to have the services of a worthy and respected clergyman as chaplain, ! sent in his name to the war office. In reply he received a form of printed qualifications. Among them was the following: "Has the applicant ever been in prison, and, if so, for what offence ?" The idea of crime in con nection with his reverend friend seemed so absurd to the colonel that he left the question unanswered, lied tape, in the person of a war office clerk, looked at it in a different light. The blank in the form suggested him only one thing, and that was official. " We note that you give no answer to question No. ," he wrote to the colonel. "We hope this does not im ply that the person you uame has been convicted. We shall be glad of a defi nite answer on this point." Here detachment from ideas is merely ludicrous. It ha 9, however, another side. Early in January a bat talion was ordered to the front which was short of officers. The colonel, knowing that the twin battalion in India was exactly the reverse, wrote to the War Office explaining the cir cumstances and urgently requesting that the full strengtli of his command might be made up by an exchauge, the officers being sent direct to Dur ban. fn great anxiety ho waited a week without a reply. The day before he left his own letter was returned to him, and across it a red tape official had scrawled in blue pencil: " This application should be sent in dupli cate." The battalion, therefore, eailed from Southampton short of officers with perhaps unfortunate conse quences in the field. But red tape knows nothing about actuality ; its limits arc bounded by form. Even in South Africa the red tape fiend is at large. When communica tion was first established between Kim berley and Lord Mcthuen's column on the Modder river it fairly outdid itself. The town, which lmd already borne some of the rigors of the siege, was naturally anxious to hear news of the relieving force, or, at any rate, to re ceive some acknowledgement that it was invested by the Boers. Greatly to its disappointment and indignation, this was the first message flashed tp Colopel Kekewiph: " Please inform the remount department, Wynbcrg, what is the number marked on the left hoof of horse supplied to Sergeant O'Gorman." To the depressed gar rison of Kimberley this message sounded like mookery of their suffer ings, but it was merely a display of red tape. On the authority of Mr. Rhodes an other story is told of officialism in Kimberley itself. Throughout the siege the military authorities failed to record the death of a single colonial, though locally raised forces were the main strength of the garrison. Nevertheless in the Kimberley gar rison orders occurs a notification to the effect that "Mule No. , having died, is hereby struck off the strength of the North Lancashire regiment." To red tape a transport animal of the regular army is of more cousequence than many troopers and officers of ir regular corps. An official not so long ago went some little distance from London on public business. On his return he sent in a bill of the expenses he in curred on the journey. One item was the small sum of threepence, opposite which, for want of a better term, he wrote " porter." To his astonishment the bill was returned to him with an intimation that no allowance was made for liquors. He explained that he paid the money, not for a drink, but to a station porter for carrying his bag to the train. This was satisfac tory ; nevertheless, to save further misunderstandings, he was asked to fill the item as porterage, When a peg to hang an overcoat on is needed in an ordinary office, either one of the clerks puts it in or a work man is aßkcd to do it. Such simple and direct methods find no favor in a world ruled by red tape, as the lollow ing incident illustrates. The neces sity for a row of pegs on the door of a room in a public building having arisen, an application to that effect was sent to the Board of Works. It was returned on the ground that the wrong department had been consulted. The Engineeriug Department at Wool "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." wich was next tried, and with Letter success, for in due course an official traveled up to London, at considerable cost to the taxpayer, to see what was required to he done. This was the preliminary to business, which, after some delay, apjieared in the form of a mechanic, who put up the pegs. Thus a small job, which might have been done for a few pence, cost as many pounds in the interest of rod (ape. A colonial official, who held an ap pointment in a protectorate, was of fered another in the western Pacific, which he accepted. To get over the ground he had been given an allow ance for a horse, forage and groom, an allowance which, it was decided, was to be continued in his new sphere of work. Unfortunately a horse was not required in a group of widely scattered coral islands, neither was forage or a groom, lie, therefore, asked the red tape fiend in Downing street if he might keep a small yacht instead, as otherwise it would be impossible for him to get about. Permission was readily granted and tlic Western Pa cific ollicial gayly took up his new duties. But lie reckoned without red tape. In making out the schedule of his ex penses he wrote down so much for the wear and tear of the yacht, and so much for the skipper. Months later It came hack to him with the irate de mand of a red-tape elerk as to whether ho " supposed that the government provided him with a pleasure yacht ?" In justifying himself lie pointed out that unless he hired a man to look after his ynclit it might be stolen on his frequent absence inland, and, in any case he required some one to keep it clean. He had merely used the word skipper for want of a better term. The explanation was perfectly satisfactory, but he was thereafter re quested to write yacht so much, forugo so much. It was more convenient! Fortunately, when red tape conies in contact with common sense, it is red tape which goes to the wall. A good story is told of an American military secretary who devised a sys tem which compelled everyone who went on business to General Bunks to procure a ticket from a member of tlio stair, the presentation of which at the door gained his admission. One day a burly colonel of an eastern regi ment came to the door of the private office at headquarters and requested that his name be given to the general. " Have you a ticket?" ho was asked. "A ticket!" echoed the colonel with scorn. " No, sir, I haven't." " You can't enter here without one," was the reply. " Sir," said the colonel, " when General Bnnks becomes a puppet show and I have 25 cents to spare I'll buy a ticket to see him— not before." He was admitted. The True QentJeman. Would you be a true gentleman? Would you care to know some of tlie things which go to make one? Well, the true gentleman must be above a low act. He cannot stoop to commit a fraud. He invades no se orot in the keeping of another. He takes selfish advantage of no man's mistake. He is ashamod of innuen does. He uses no ignoble weapons in con troversy. He never stabs in the dark. He is not one thing to a man's face and another fo his back. If, by ac cident, he becomes in possession of his neighbor's counsels, he passes them into instant oblivion. He bears scaled packages without tampering with the wax. Papers not meant for his eye, whother they flutter in at his window or lie open before him in un guarded exposure, are secret to him. He profanes no privacy of anothor, however the sentry sleeps. Bolts and bars, locks and keys, bonds and se curities, notices to trespassers, are not for him. He may be trusted out of sight—near the thinnest partition— anywhere. He buys no office, he sells none, he intrigues for none. He would rather fail of his rights than win them through dishonor. He will cat honest bread. Ho tramples on no sensitive feeling. He insults 110 one. If be has a re buke for another, be is straightforward, open and manly. He cannot descend to scurrility. In short, whatever he judges honorable he practices toward every one. Insert Rolls. Sift a quart of flour with a half tea spoonful of salt and a teaspoonful of sugar, rub into it a teaspoonful of butter, add a cup of warm milk and a third of a yeast cake that has been dissolved in three tablcspoonfuls of warm water, and knead this dough for 20 minutes. Set to rise for six or eight hours, make into rolls, put these in a greased baking pan, and let them rise for half an hour longer before baking. A CLAM-CANNING factory will be es tablished at Fort Townsend. OLYMI'IA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, DEC. 14, 1900. A NEW SOCIAL CLUB. SOMETHINC EXCEEDINGLY NOV EL FOR THE "JINERS." It Will Undoubtedly Find Rich Soil for Growth in This City, Where Money is More Easily " Dug Up" For Lodge Dues Than for Beef Steaks. Anew organization which has just been installed at Wulla Walla, accord ing to the Statesman, is quite different in many points from any tiling of a so cial nature that has preceded it. The organization is known as " The Lob sters." Just why the name of the crustacean should he adopted, is not stated and we arc left to infer that it is his frequent presence at the festive board that has now brought him so prominently to the front. This places the still more acceptable clam and oy ster in line for " side degrees," both of which are eminently titted for the (.iraDt-like virtue of keeping (if they have any) their mouths closed. The Statesman's account of the new order, with some apparent modifica tions, is as follows " The Lobsters" have organized. Not the macrourous or long-tailed crustea, which scientists tell us live in the sea; and not the handsome red thing that goes into the Thanksgiving salad, but rather a flock of young men with bohemian tendencies nnd abbre viated pocketbooks and whose name can be as quickly guessed as told. In the slang language of to-day a lobster is a " dead one," a worthless fellow, a dub, but the Lobsters who have joined together to form the club arc persons to whom the slang phrases cannot bo applied. The membership is limited to twen ty-five. This is the only thing the club has limited. It has no more constitution than a consumptive Chinaman. It has no by-laws. It has no house committee. It has no rules or regulations. It has a committee on drink. Unlike the celebrated Blue Pencil club of New York, it is not a question of the booze paying the dues, but rath, er " the dues pays for the booze." It will have club rooms if some good kind-hearted landlord can be found. The club rooms will be nicely fur nished and open at all times to mem bers. Just how the furniture will be (se cured hits not as yet been determined. Some of tho members who have been constant and patient readers oi the Ladie»' Home Journal, thiuk that by securing a few lemon boxes, five or six barrels and some eight cent calico, per fectly exquisite chairs can be manu factured. At least they draw this con clusion from the recipes in that jour nal, " haw to make a chair at home." A perfect love of a divan has been erected by one of the members out of a discarded nickel-in-thc-slot-machinc. Another member has built a hand some and strong tablo out of a butch er's block, kindly donated by a Fourth street butcher who hopes by this means to get into the club. At least once a month the club will give a social to which outside friends will be invited. They expect to cinch these friends for enough hard coin to satisfy the avaricious desire of the landlord. At each of these socials handsome souvenirs will be awarded to the hand somest and tho homeliest visitor. These souvenirs will be made out of gum elastic, attached to miniature hammers. Tho watchword will be >' Rubber First and Then Knock." Of course the club looks for plenty of knockers. The names of the members and the presiding officer are kept secret. Any member divulging a name will be forced to read the Capital every week for a year. This the club feels will be a punishment sufficiently severe to assure secrecy in all things. When the punishment was agreed upon at a late meeting every man in the room shuddered, and the combined shudder shook thirty-five cents out of the pocket of the presiding officer. Talk about earthquakes! No earthquake could have done more than that. Members without baggage are wel come, if they have money. Around the wall of the club room will be twenty-five pegs—ono for each member. On these pegs will be hung long and sweet rags for the members to chew. In the corner will be a large pile of hammers. Dishes will bo thrown at all bellicose members. Any interference from the police will be censured. There were many other rules adopt ed that would indicate the " Lobsters" are to be a howling success. During the week the committee ap pointed to find rooms will labor with landlords. The committee on furni ture will do business with the junk map and proceed to turn out some fine samples of home-made furnitudc, which will be moved into the rooms before the next meeting. llie brewers and wholesale wine men will be interviewed. The next meeting will lie a hot one. uuless all signs fail. DECADENCE OF CANAL BOATS. A Change that is Regarded as Remarkable by the Passing Generation. Nov York Sun " Commonly speaking," said an Erie canal boat cnptain, " the old time canal business is on its last legs. I've been at it as owner and captain for fifteen years, and am poorer to-day than when I began. I owned three boats of three mule-power each, and I carried grain from Buffalo to New York city over the Erie. I paid $2,- M) 0 for one boat thirteen years ago and sold her hut year for SOOO. The one I am captain of now cost me $3,000 twelve years ago, new, and I am offer ing her now for S3OO and no takers. There's a loss in those two items alone of sl,-100 in thirteen years, or a shade over $325 a year. The capacity of my present host is 8,000 bushels of wheat, and I carried the load from Buffalo to New York, say 500 miles, at an aver ago of two cents aud a half a bushel That would make S2OO for the load, and it took me ten days on the canal and two down the river from Troy. I paid $1 for towage from Troy to Albany and $25 from Albany to New York, besides 5 per cent, commission at Buffalo and eight or ten dollars extra charges when I got to New York, so that you see, with the regular ex penses, my own labor and time, and the money I had invested, there wasn't much of a margin. It took eight days to get back to Buffalo, and it wasn't often that 1 got enough merchandise as freight to pay barely more than ex penses. " There was shortage sometimes, too, in the wheat, aud I had to make that good at the regular price the cargo sold at. My last load got mc for $29 on this account. However," and the captain smiled, "it wasn't always against me, and one lime I was ahead over three hundred bushels and I got a rhrok plump down for more than $250. It WHS a little funny about that. I found out afterward that when my boat was loaded a lump of coal had some way got fastened in the apron that ought to have closed the chute from the elevator, but didn't, and the wheat slipped through the crack to the extent of over three hun dred bushels. It was only a case of luck, for the next boat that came after mine was twenty bushels short. " For the last three years I have hcen lightering around New York har bor from the elevators to ships or wherever the grain was to be deliv ered, and that doesn't pay much bet ter than canal work. All I got for myself and boat is $2 a day, 24 hours long if necessary, and, except in sum mer when business is brisk, I only get such jobs as I can pick up. For the month of March, for instance, I only received S2B, that is, fourteen days' work. I am getting pretty tired of the boat business, and if you know of anybody that wants to buy my boat aud good will scud him around with SBOO to give up, and I'll be glad to re tire from a life on the ocean wave, so to speak." Out for Blood. In the recent campaign in Brooklyn, N. Y., Bishop Fowler was introduced to a Republican audience, in the Grand Central Palace, as a. " true blue Republican." Tho New York Sun, a Republican newspaper, published this report: " Mr. Beck was followed by Bishop C. H. Fowler, of tho Methodist Episco. pal Church. Tho particular part of the Bishop's long speech, which was received with the most applause, was this: ' Shall we have Bryan elected? No; a thousand times no. I'd rather go to sea with a boat of stone, with sails of lead, with oars of iron, with the wrath of God as a gale and a hell for a port.'" The blood-thirsty Bishop who pub licly proclaims hin preference to a re served scat in heli rather than endure the election of Mr. Bryan has a wiry nerve to pose as a Christian. Prayers Stopped by Snakes. Garfield Williams, a white boy, was arrested at his home near Elkton, Ky., recently, on the charge of turning loose in Pea Ridge church during a protracted meeting two live snakes. He concealed the snakes in his hat until he got into the church, and when the space about the altar was crowded with seekers he turned loose his snakes. It created the greatest commotion possible. The snakes were killed. Williams was fined SSO and given twenty days in jail. " PAPA, where are the most dia monds found?" asked Willie. "In somebody else's hand when they are trumps," growled papa, who'd been having hard luck at whist. INFLUENCE OF GEMS. OMENS THAT SUPERSTITION AT TACHES TO THEM. Opals and Pearls Supposed to Bring 111 Luck, While Diamonds Enlist the Favors of Fortune—Emeralds were Always Popular and Are Still Held in Favor—Pliny and the Em erald. Tlalliniore American. 1 recious stones in all times have had considerably more than an intrinsic value, for about each of the many kinds have been woveu strange and interesting superstitions, many of them dating from times of which his tory is silent. Since the love of jewels was born in the east and since this wonderful world is as well the birth place of most of the world's supersti tions, it is from such a fruitful source that many of the oldest and strangest of these come. Many of them have suffered changes since their introduc tion to the western world, but there still exists traces of Indian handiwork in the legends, and where the ancient story has disappeared altogether some narrative of it has been found, to come all tho stranger to modern-day readers. Of the many precious stones that are worn to-day most all of them have lost any odium that may have belonged to them, and the wearers in maoy cases have chosen the sparkler merely upon its merits as an orna ment. Time was, however, when he who went about the task of choosing a gem, particularly if it was to be worn about the person continually, made his way through the maze of clinging superstitions as carefully as a scout through an enemy-infested woods. His decision meant weal or woe, and as the greater number of the stones had omens of ill fortune the chances in favor of woe were far too numerous for comfort. At this day, belief in the potency of these stones to cast gloom or sorrow or to bring fortune and happiness, as the case might have been, have well nigh passed away, and now the old stories are only valuable to amuse. There is, to bo sure, a lingering dislike for the opal and in some miDds a prejudice against the pearl, since su perstitions cling about them, but the class entertaining these is a small one, and as a mark of the progress of the age is growing smallei. The disfavor into which the opal has fallen is of modern birth, strange to say, and is said to have been due to the use which Sir Walter Scott made of the stone in one of his novels. The Hindoo, who reduced the reading of gem omens to a science, had only kind words for the opal. It was supposed— and, for that matter, is to-day among the Hindoos—to influence for good upon the travelers, protecting them from danger while away and bringing them safely home again. As the opal combines in itself the colors of all other goms, so the ancients credited it uot only with this distinctive virtue, but with all of the virtues credited to other stones. Opals were, therefore, prized most highly and those not able to own a great variety chose this to have full value of its wide range of powers. That the pearl is in some disfavor is as well a product of modern times and can only be traced to its resemblance to a tear, a fact that has credited it with bringing sorrow. The ancients in ascribing the generation of gems to lapidific spirits accounted for the pearl in the most poetic way—that it was formed of tho morning dew, drunk in by shellfish, and naught but good fortune came to the wearer, a necklace of pearls being above all thing a good-omened gift for a bride groom to give tiis bride. —The diamond has enjoyed the unre served favor of the ages and to-day is the peor of all. According to Boetius, the diamond was regarded as symboli cal of justice, and the judges in hades were described as having hearts and bosoms of adamant, while the clouds of destiny were shrouded in the same substance. Among the various stones the sapphire stands forth with per haps the greatest amount of supersti tious interest centered in it. Among the Hebrews it seems to have been re* garded with the highest veneration, a tradition assorting that the vision which appeared to Moses on the mount was in a sapphire, and that the tablets of the law given there were en graved on this substance. The Hin doo ascribes many powers to this gem, among them that it purifies the blood, strengthens the system, quenches thirst, dispels melancholy, averts dangers and assures honors and prosperity. A strange belief in regard to this stone was that it reproduced its spe cies, and hence the titles of "male" and " female" sapphires used to-day in the cast, as the stones are of a deep or a light color. The emerald is another about which many curious beliefs have been formed. According to Pliny, tlio an cients attributed to it the power of healing weak sight, its soft green depths having great potency over the sight. In addition to this, it disclosed false witnesses by changing color in their presence. One of the most curious stories is related in all seriousness by Pliny as relating to the emerald. Says lie: "In the Island of Cyprus there is placed on the tomb of King Hermans a lion sculptured in marble and for eyes emeralds were set in which shone so brightly on the surrounding sea that the fish were frightened away, and the fishermen, observing this with dismay, removed the emeralds from the lion, replacing them by stones not having so much brilliancy." The Pe ruvians considered an emerald the choicest gift that could be made to one of their idols, and Pizarro men tions one as large as an ostrich egg that was exhibited by the high priest only at the greatest festivals aud was worshipped as the goddess of emeralds. Boetius, in speaking of other stones, says that the amethyst dispels drunk enness and sharpens the wit; the ja cinth, if worn on the finger, induces sleep; the turquoise preserves from contagion, drawing upon itself the threatened sickness, though only if the stone be present; the heliotrope renders its wearer invisible and the chrysolite loses its brilliancy if placed in the vicinity of poison. In the east, and particularly to the Hindoo, the cat's-eye is most highly prized as a rare talisman that has the |K>wer of warding off sickness, and only misfortune can follow the loss, whether accidental or compulsory, of one of the stones. HOW OUR PRESIDENTS LOOKED All Were Not Models of Manly Strength and Beauty. New York Sun. Washington's own description of himself fs accurate. When ordering a suit of clothes of a London tailor he wrote that he was " a man G feet high and proportionately made; if anything rather slender for a person of that height." In those times it was a con venient thing to have a friend with a foot of the same size as your own, as Washington had in Colonel Beiler, when be availed himself in his direc tions across the water of that gentle man's last, " only a little wider over tbo instep." When Washington was in Barbados, West Indies, in 1751, where he spent the winter with his in valid brother, Lawrence, he had small pox, and his face always bore faint traces of the disease. John Adams was of middle height, vigorous, tlorid and somewhat corpu lent, quite like the typical John Bull. Thomas JefTerson was very erect, agile and strong. He had strong fea tures, with prominent chin and cheek bones. James Madison was small of stature, modest and quiet, neat and refined, courteous and amiable. James Mon roe was tall, well formed, with blue eyes and light complexion. John Quincy Adams was a great student and described by bis friends as a noble fellow. He was cool, resolute and good-humored, with a broad brow and a firm mouth. Andrew Jackson stood 6 feet 1 inch in his stockings, was far from hand some, with a long, thin, fair face, high and narrow forehead, with abundant reddish, sandy hair falling low over it, and eyes deep blue and brilliant when he was aroused. He had a slender, graceful figure. He was a bold rider and a capital shot, the sort of hero, when he became President, for whom people threw up their caps and shout ed themselves hoarse. Martin Van Buren was a very pol ished gentleman, " punctilious, polite, always cheerful and self-possessed." It was charged against him by those not friendly to him that he dined too well, lived too well, kept too good company, had tastes too refined and a tone too elegant. William Henry Harrison made few enemies, though the subject of hos tility. His most pronounced feature was his nose of the Roman order. His expression was always serious. John Tyler was also a gentleman of solemn mien. James K. Polk was of middle weight, rather spare; he had bright, expressive cy es and an ample, angular forehead. He was generous, benevolent and pious. Zachary Taylor, old "Rough and Ready," had the almost warlike ex pression of an Indian chief. He was remarkable for the purity of his character and his modesty. Millard Fillmore was a cultivated, agreeable man. Franklin Pierce had a frank, open face and was warm hearted. James Buchanan was the only bachelor President and one of the most polished in manners and at tractive in appearance. OASTORIA. Ban the /f 1 Kind You Hats Always BNtdt WHOLE NUMBER 2,115.
