It Is customary Tor new ventures In Jour nalism to start out wit a vaunting salutatory, which consists principally,, of promises that are to be fulfilled. But as there is Lot much in boasting, ard as the ubJc gerernlly prefers deeds to words. 11ns evening edition of Tho Times simply nks the Jr.du'geiicu ot readers until given opportunity to prove its worthiness. There will be no change in tho general po'ley of The Evening Times from that already adopted and put in force by its morning sponror, of which it is really a part and parcel. It Is only intended to broaden the Held of usefulness of an already popular newspaper, ard to gi v Its read, rs a more lrequent, varied, and exteiideduews service. The same vigor and fearlessness will be manifested in uprooting public evils that have characterized tho success of. The Horning Times in eradicating the abuses that afflict society, and no reader shall ever have reason to think that Its columns are controlled or Influenced by other than a (spirit of upright Independence. Until Tho Times was established this spirit of honest Journalism did not prevail In Washington. Certain rings and cliques manufactured and moulded newspaper bentiment, and it was not until recently that the Influence of The Times caused a radical change to be" made. Whether or not this improved condition entitles The Times to a more extended pa tronage, the public is in position to Judge and by that decision the future of both the morning and evening editions of the people's popular newspaper will be largely determined. STORY OK THE TIMES. Now that Tho Evening Times is before the public, a Miort history ot Its predecessor nnd iarcut. The Horning Tunes, may be cot inappropriate. The Washington Times was started Sunday morning, March 18, 1891. und has since been continuously issued, al though rot without a great deal of untehVIi effort on the part of the men who 6larted It. For The Times had a definlto purpose as its raison d'etre. That-.rpose was the establishment of a newspaper which should bo fair to workingnien in its news ami editorial columns. It was believed by organized labor in Washington that the other daily newspapers of the city were unfah to the creat body of people in the District whoso interests these news papers pretended to ferve. It was thought that rows itmis concerning theday-to-day dolt-gs ot this-vast constituency were omitted from daily news columns, cither by definite intention or, carelessness. It was also thought that tho editorial utter ances of these newspapers on local and general labor topics were unjust to work ingnien, and too .strongly colored, either by unreasoning prejudice or private in terests, v. hich clashed with Uio interests of wage-earners. It must bo admitted that this condition was real, and the nieu who started The Times had a clear undestanding of the necessity of just such a newspaper. Tbo stock jvf 'he first Tunes Company, called The Washington Times Publishing Company, and incorporated in Virginia, was eagerly and unstintedly subscribed to from the treasures or local labor organ izations and from the private purses ot individuals who sympathized with the objects in view. But the expanse of the daily issuance of a modern nowspaper was too much for the original capital and weekly income from stock subscriptions. Only the hard work and unselfi3h devotion of the first board ot lircctors carried the jviper through this stormy iriod. Bills wero paid from day to day and meetings of the board of directors were held nearly every night. Weeks passed without a payday Hi the composing, editorial ard business departments, and aflcngth it was seen that the paper must b? discontinued, oven though It meant the loss of all the hard-earned money utilized in its establishment and 'running expenses. At this Juncture Congressman Charles O. Conn, of Indiana, whose lifelong sympa thies have been with the Interests ot la boring men, paid the debts of the company, including t! back salaries and wages of employes, and put Tho Times on a solid fi nancial footing. Although the whole plant and good will of the newspaper then belonged to Mr. Conn and, tho stock of The Washington-Times Publishing Company be came valueless, a new organization. The Washington Times Company, was formed, and Mr. Conn restored, without charge, an equivalent amount of stock in tho new company to holders of stock In 'the old company. From this period the history, ot Tba Times is well-known to Washingtonlanr. Under Mr. Conn's editorial supervision, this paper has endeavored to tell the truth In every column. In Jess than a year It has EucceetfuUy attacked many local evils, among them the race tracks, gaa combine, alley immorality, sbylocks, mea- In any case of irregular, delivery of The Times please send Postal Card to this office. senger boy rervlco in the division, urdurt reduction o wages In many trade, swindling real cetate projects, etc. Thee reforms havo not been wrought by The Times without toe loss of a Tery courider rub.e amount or advertisings which might hare been retained or secured by a policy less honest atd-Uraigbtforward. Bat tho magnificent support given a fearless Jour nal by the people of Washington has more than repaid these efforts. A e.ir ago tc-day The Times had 0,000 real circulation. This morning it has de.ivered. at least 23,000 pald-for copies. Such a marvelous growth is ucapproached In Washington, and In proportion, un paralled in the country at large. In a newspaper field, where there are four competitors, the youngest of them Is now a doso cecond in local circulation and amount of local advertising. Such a wordcrfnl Journalistic leap can be accounted for by no uther reason thau the appreciation of tho American pcop'e Tor honesty and enterprise, particularly where It Is contrasted with a conierraUPiu either hereditary or suspicious, as the case may be. With this mngnliicent record of earnest-, ness, devotion, and beneficial results to Inspire it. The Evening Times begins its career to-day. The Morning Times hasi been conducted In all its department! with conspicuous ability. The evening edition will do its best to emulate it in all things. SUNDAY 11IOTEVG. Riverside Park, a retort between the city ot Alexandria and the sacred precincts of Mount Vernon, was yesterday tho scene of a disgraceful riot. Blood was spdled, beer bottles and glauvs wero freely wielded, and generally the Sabbath was decorated In a "most wanton ard brutal manner. As It has been the duty ot Tho Tunes to frequently remark, tho lawlessness of this vicinity is the direct remit or the outlaw tracks In Alexandria County and their pro longed train of attendant evils. In that county gambling of the most notorious and crime-breeding kind has pre vailed Tor a long tunc. All tho efforts or honest and law-abiding citizens to weed itout have beenuna vailing. Ithascorrupted people who have hitherto borne good reputations. It has made the officers or the law , sworn to do tbelr duty. Its willing tools: has made the law itself a mockery, has ruined for years to come the home making prospects of a fair vicinity, and has brought under its banc and blasted young lives full of prendre. It may bo advanced, and truthfully, fiat the bloodshed ot yesterday was inrtigated by Washingtonians. That is no escurc. The crlme-'ovlng and evil-doing will go where their predictions can havo full swing, and the banquet for them now Is Alexandria County and its neighborhood. It Is the Plague spot, not only of Alex andrians, but of the National Cupital. A few Incidents Hie yesterday's, which un fortunately are Iwund to occur, may do much to eradicate the evil. KINOS OF CHESS HEX. Since the great tournament at London in 1883 there has been no assembly of chess players that will compare in importance to that which meets to-day at the pretty watering place of Hastings, In England. Since 1883 several new champions have come to the front, and the opening tourna ment may truly bo expected to be the greatest by far that has ever been fought. All of the rta vers famed throughout the world of chess, representing Great Bri tain, Germany, Austria, Russia, France and America, wSll take a baud, and those devoted to this Incomparable intellectual game will be In a condition of feverish absorbtion and expectation until the victor In the battle of giants shall be de clared. Easker, the present world's cham pion, who, however, holds the prize by winning a single match from Stclnitz, whose uninterrupted record of twenty one victories, and his weak physical con dition when .he lost his match to Easkcr yet almost makes him champion by right; Dr. Tcrrasch, the great German expert, who has a wonderful record of victories; Tehignrire, the champion ot Rus-ia; Blockbjrne.of England, t-icchampioa blind fold player of this day, who even excels the late Paul Murphy in his almost super natural feats of memory; Guusbcrg, a Hun garian by birth, but now a naturalized Englishman, who has defeaUd Dlackburna In an open-eyes match; Jauowski, the sole French representalh e, with a Polish name, and many others of more than Euroiean fame, will engage In the tourney. Henry l'lllsbury, ot Brooklyn, New York, is the only native American repre sentative, but will undoubtedly honor his country and leave no room for regret among' the rapidly growing circle of ex perts in this country. Other Americans born abroad who will take a hand are A. C. Wslbrndt, who is but tnent -three )ears olu; II. E. Bird, who is seventy-tour, but Mill a great plajer, and James Mason, who has been In Amer ica, but who has passed his life abroad. It may be said in passing thtt Theodore Tilton, the eminent American, who has been a resident of Paris for the last ten years, has defeated nearly all of the best players of the social metropolis, whose head quarters are at that most charming of ancient hostelrles, the cafe do la Legence. It is therefore patent that Americans abroad have won high respect from tho foreigners for their cunning in manipulat ing the pieces ot this matchless game. As Washington has many expert play ers this tournament will possess a lively local interest, and will undoubtedly result In giving a new impetus to the develop ment of greater skill among experts at the national capital. JOHX VERSUS llODSEY. The newspaper press ottwo worlds have recenUy given much Fpace to the exploits of a more or less worthy son of a more or less worthy tire, descriVing the more or le- idiotic dinner ghen by Mr. Rodney Wananiaker, sou of Mr. Harrison's late Postmaster General, to several boon com panions of one ortwo sexes in the morally liberal and reckless city of Paris. Young Wananiaker invoked everything the always plethoric cuislno of the French metropolis affords and invented a few combinations of his own quite us unique In a gustotorial way as the combine against Quay la in a political way in Wanamaker's State ot Pennsylvania. He exercised as vagrant an imagination In his successful attempt to expend $20,000 on a few covers and many courses as bis parent does to make attractive his big shep in the Quaker City. In all recent history of dissipation and reckless extravagance nothing has-come to the surface which quite equals tho ex ploit of this young American Timon ot Athens, whose, end, if he keeps the pace he struck in Paris, may not be unlike his ancient bu t far moreinteresUng prototype. In pleasing contrast to the escapade of young Wananiaker there is now wafted from the Pacific coast a bit. ot news ot another coUaUon, which, it not as refresh ing in odor as gales fiom Araby, Is yet permeated by a perfume of common sense which argues that all the rich Amcricam are not Wanamakers. Mr. John W. Mackay.theCalifornlamalll mllllonalro, gave a luncheon tho other day to a few friends previous to his depart ure for Alaska, there to look Into spoor- I tunities tor the building of newjfor tunea. II was a tnnebeoB for mllltowalrca, one of whom was Herman Oelrtchs, the great banker. Three courses were served. The first was clam chowder, ike second corned beef and cabbage, the third a des sert of squab pio and tho sole drink was buttermilk. ' "Verily the Parisian and Californian pictures would make admirable motives Tor some one -of those versatile Impres sionist painters of Paris. Not tho least cheerful and appetizing feature of tho matter Is that Mr. Mackay declared he had not so well enjoyed any luncheon he had eaten since 1849, whenhoroughedlt among the mines. It will hardly bo thought that Mr. Mackny vwas actuated by any consideration of economy. lie and his wife have given some fine dinners ct Tarls and London dur ing their much-discussed life abroad. Mrs. MscLay showed some contempt for mere expenditure of money when she paid Messonter f20,COO for her portrait, and then Immediately caused Its destruc tion because it was not satisfactory, an opinion In which she 'was not supported by .eminent critics. But no member of. the Mackay, or any other American family, has ever attempted to rival the exploit of young Wauamaker, who stands alone amid such glory as his cxtravugauce has deservedly on. There was a time when Europeans, and more especially Englishmen, had a saying that "none bat fools and Americans rldo first class" In railway trains. That dc rlalrc accusation had become obsolete, pat Is now gently revived and transformed into "there's no fool like an American tool when hu is being Initiated into the mys teries of the Parisian world." " It is ey readily admitted, however, thai, vounir W.innmnknr 1 hrt nrp-mln(Mitlv the cinimdimenl of the epithet that all the others become sensible by comparison. The next young American who essays to win notoriety can best do so by dupli cating the luncheon spread for his friends by Mr. .Mackay. , a aion of sivi.vnEEns. For months past this city has been the headquarters ot a gang of confidenco sharps who resort to the many swindling tricks known to their calling to fleece the unwary. Ono ot their favorite methods Is to advertise in tho daily newspaper cither for a partner to rotue questionable scheme, or a person to enter their employ who can post a forfeit as a certificate ot character, which, of course, is never re turned. Our news columns gives the ex perience ot ono of their latest victims, which should serve as a warning to those who answer personals in newspapers. It is sac to conclude that strangers who require a deiwslt ot money for the good conduct of iiersons seeking employ ment are swindlers and should not be trusted. There are Instances where prop erly is consigned to agent when this rule does not apply, but generally speaking the slranger who demands the forfeit is the one that needs the most watching. An effort should be made by our detec tive force to break up this nest ot sharps. Complaints are entirely loo frequent to allow this systemmatic method ot robbing the unsophisticated to longer continue and an arrest or two is necessary to preveut their further operati&ns. In recording the suspension f whisky making In Kentucky It must be rtmem bered that the illicit article doesn't keep still. Senator Hill Is quite a long time prepar ing his reply to Mr. Roosevelt. Terhaps Holmes was merely disgusted with Chicago's continuous boasting of her big population. It was perhaps well thai Lord nose lery hadn't to hustle for bis scat In the House of Lords.

The mouth of that Chicngohealth officer who objects to kissing ought to be in de mand by dime museum managers. Every effort should be made to bring the headquarters of the National League of Republican Clubs to Washington. This city, as tho jiolitlcal center of the nation.

It is not, of course, as far as the citizens aro concerned, a question of iiolltlcs, but of the prosperity and good reputation of the city. Any organization that comes here Is sure of good treatment. Of course, theWashlngtonnndGcorgctown and Chevy Chase consolidation means that suburban residents will soon have the much-desired privilege of gcttlngdown town for one fare. When that great corpo ration breaks the Ice it Is natural to as-same that others will fall Load over heels to be the f 1 rst to follow. 1 ho Evening Times.

And Didn't Shudder at tllo Thought of BeMlwr the Innocent Conductor. . (From the Buffalo Express ) She was a buslnefs-UVe woman. There was nothing fiiolous in her face, if I am any reader of counteuances. She looked as If she could drive a bargain with the skill of an expert. She boarded a Main street car, walked calmly to the front corner, sat do tv a and began to read a newspaper. After several other persons had got on, the conductor came forward to collect the fares. The woman did not look up from her paper. Tho conductor rang-up a num ber of fares, and then began to look puz zled. Evidently his receipts did not corre spond with the mental note he bad of the number he should collect. 'Did I get your fare?" he asked of a man sitting on the opposite side of the car. The reply was affirmative. "And yours?" turning to his neighbor. Still an affirmative answer. The woman continued absorlied in her paper. The conductor looked hard at her several times, but evidently her sex saved her from an accusation of tryiug to lieat the company. The conductor shook his head fadly and returned to the rear plarform Then the woman stopped reading, and with just the ghost of a smile oa her face, began looking out of the window. I have seen men work the trick often, but this was the first time I ever saw a woman who had the nerve to do it. CRIME IX GERMANY. Official Stntl-tlCM Show That It Is on the, Increase.
