Mr. Almerlc Hugh Paget, of the British legation, has fallen under the ban in English circles for ordering a yacht off llerresshoff. The idea of patronizing a ranl.ee, a "blawsted Yankee," is an of fense not easily forgiven, and in comment ing on ttie subject, the Westminster Gazette says- "The crop of attaches is abundant, and we might find better than this Yankee smirched one." The truth is, Mr. Paget is a gentlerotvi.of keen conception and remarkable foresight. He knows a good thing when he sees it, and la order that his country men may na-.e opportunity to learn what an American yacht buildercando he proposes to take back to England with him one of our best pro ductions To be sure the jacht is a small affair, only a 2 1-2 rater, but It will be superior In every way to the tjpe that England lias been sending to this country for the last thirty years to win back the America's cup. There is a possibility that the real pur pose of the purchase Is the improvement of the breed of British yachts, by putting the builders onto the Heresshorf curves. If true, this abuse of Mr. Paget Is un warranted. Instead of publishing edi torials written In words that show a Titrolhc association, they should be couched In phrase3 fresh from a bouquet holder. There can be no greater victory than that which is won from an enemy on his own ground and with his ow n weapons, and if England ever expects to obtain pos session of the America's cup it must be won with cither a Yankee boat or one built from a Yankee model. AGAINST GRADE CHOSSES'GS. Scranton, Pennsylvania, has a Jury which appreciates at Its proper criminal value the railroad grade crossing. These wise and humane Jurors Jiavc just rendered a verdict ot upwards of $8,000 damages in favor of Mrs. Mary Roberts, whose hus band was killed by a train when driving over nn unprotected grade crossing. While State and NationalJeglslatures re fuse to provide by law for this protection, Ibe public whose lives arc endangered are forced to depend upon the sagacity of juries and their independence ot Uie influ ence of railroads and the pcrmaslve tongues sf railroad attorneys. The Roberta Jury deserves world-wide commendation. THAT AV HIPPING POST JUHY. To add a word upon a subject about which too much cannot be said in a con demnatory way, one Is led to wonder If the granil Jury and the judge who recom mended the establishment ot the whip ping post at the Nation's Capital consid ered for a moment berore they pronounced themselves what the rest of the world Woold have to say about It. At this seat ot government wc cannot elevate our i.oses In the air, assume a posi tion exalted above all criticism, and say to other cities and capitals and critics that If they will mind their business we will mind ours. Wc are more than any other dty amenable to national criticism! We can conceive of a density ot intel lect, a crass misunderstanding of the causes of crime, lis prevention and pun ishment, by methods which will best advance the Interests of society, that would lead to a brilliant and final conclu sion In favor of the whipping post as a great educator. There are plenty of Intel lects of that sort. But what shall be said ot the mental caliber of men who would not hesitate to urge the establishment of the whipping post for the simple reason that such rec ommendation must brine the govcrn- ment and people ot the District of Colum bia under a scathing fire of ridicule and sarcasm from right-thinking people ot the whole world? It would be Interesting; to know some thing of the personality ot the sixteen grand Jurors who recommended the whip ping post. It would also be Interesting to know whither Judge Bradley1, In his own State and place of residence, ever advocated the establishment or the whip ping post. FIRST DUTY OF CONGBESS. But a few weeks more will pass before the Fifty-forth Congress will assemble, and It may be predicted that one of Its first acts after organization will be a declaration In favor of the cause of the Cuban patriots. It Is plain that the President Intends to leave everything Cuban to Congress. Whether it be on account of too much fish or too much flesh, Mr. Cleveland clearly finds It impossible to take any action In Cuban interests. Be may be moved when he returns to Washington, but at present it seems that the people must look to Con grees for a humane and patriotic policy. If the Members of the new Congress, pur suing their various callings, and a great majority of them separated from popu lous centers, have not awakened to a full realization of the meaning ot the Cuban up rising, they will undoubtedly be well edu cated before the day ot organization. Within the next few weeks mass meet ings will be held in every part of the country. The people of Washington will be heard from In concert with tl.c people of other cities. The Indifference of the admlnls trailon; the employment of rinkerton de tectives by the Spanish government to overhaul so-called filibusters; activity In various ways in Spain's Lehalf, will be denounced, and a general demand for Cuban recognition will lie heard. Also, as exclusively announced In the Times, a. commission will be speedily appointed by the Cubans to act as a diplcm.iticagcncy betweeii them and the United States Gov ernment, anil to establish a formal medium of communication. x All this vt ill result In warming Ameri can enthusiasm for free Cuba to fever heat before the meciii g of Congress, but mean time it vi ill not Lc too late ortui early for the Lone Fidierruan of Buzzard's Bay to let drop some-vord of sympathy for the Culian patriots, even If he cannot broadly and officially recognize them as bellig erents nitOWN TO CGLHEHSON. Tncse are great days for battles royal between State governments, urged on by law abiding citizens, and men who lung each other's faces and bodies, liacked by tbo-e who take either a pecuniary or an "intellectual" interest in such brutal exhibitions. While Gov. Culberson, of Texas, is struggling to prevent the Corlnlt-Fitzsini-raoiia mill, and the Texan legislature is in extra session to atslst or thwart him. Gov. Brown, of Keutucky, has issued a proclamation declaring that he will call out the militia of the State, if necc'eary, to prevent a prize fight advertl-ed to take place at Louisville Friday night. This must be a cheering message to Gov. Cul berson, and It will undoubtedly have some moral effect upon the Texas legislature. All eyes are turned to day toward the little capital city of Austin, where the legislature is assembled for the most re markable purpoe for which a law making body was ever called together. It must cither prohibit or permit prizefighting be furelt disperses. There appears, strangely enough, to be some doubt In regard to its course, and the doubt Is strengthened when one reads that a large delegation of busi ness men from Dallas are lobhjing in favor of the sporting element. The spectacle is an astounding one for the close of this nineteenth century of progress In civilization. It remains to be seen whether the Tcvas legislature N as prone toward institutions of barbarism as a District of Columbia grand Jury. NIGHT SCHOOLS. The opening of the night schools next Monday, for which Superintendent Powell obtained permission from the board of trustees. Is gratifying for two reasons: First, that they will be opened; second, that they will be opened early in the season. They form a feature of our school system, which is of especial benefi cence. These schools accommodate a class of children that, but for them, would be compelled to go without teaching. News boys, messengers and others, who, by strcs3 of necessity, have to work In the daytime and help to keep the pot boiling at home, make use of them. They serve to brighten the life of many a little one whose mind would, without their aid, remain iu the darkness of ignorance. So beneficent is the operation ot these schools that the system ought to be ex tended, as rapidly as the means at the dis posal ot the Commissioners penult, to all sections of the city, and amplified as far as possible. No money is better spent, and no class of pupils appreciates more fully the advantages of education than they that after their day's labor attend the night school. SPAKE THE QUAIL. With the advent of October the game laws In many near-by sections are re laxed, and the beasts of the field and birds ot the air become legitimate prey. Sports men are this season, however, confronted with a distressing condition of affairs. The severe weather of last winter prac tically exterminated in this latitude the noblest of Eastern game birds the quail. Suow drifts and arctic temperature accom plished what years of shooting could not have done, and unless sport is tempered this season with Its truest element, the quail will be a thing of the past. The leg islatures of adjacent States have turned a deaf ear to the appeals of sportsmen, and it behooves everyone who claims a right to that title to remedy this negli gence. Spare the quail yourself, and seek to have others do soT Farmers should post their lands and rigidly enforce the trespass laws, and with co-operation the noble "Bob White" may yet sound his call from field and thicket, and furnish royal sport to lovers of the gun. The long suffering baseball umpire will soon go Into winter quarters, surrounded by malt beverages, and explain how It came about. Free Cuba and free sugar would make'a sweet-sounding phrase. While Miss Yanderbllt may not descend from as Ions a line of ancestry as Marlbor ough, she can boast ot a longer line of rail roads and a considerably longer bank ac count. Unless Tammany is victorious at the com- lng election, there Is danger that one ot New York's bar associations cannot go into liquidation. It would be wlse.to defer further discus sion ou whether or not bis grandfather's hat Is In It until the next national Repub lican convention. The selection ot a site tor the new gar bage crematory Is causing an awful sight of trouble. It would be a mistake to let the cold wave carry us any nearer the North Pole than we are at present. Ananias has again opened his "campaign of education" In the several States where elections take place next month. Straws sliowwhlch way the wind blows, and fall breezes hustle the straw hat Into the dark closet. Before Mr. Campbell hoists a Presi dential Jib topsail he had better arrauge to safely carry his gubernatorial mainsail. The cricket on the Philadelphia hearth is Just now do'ng some lively chirping over the defeat of the English team. Our lusty baseball team is respectfully informed that there Is a scarcity of mule thumpers on the Georgetown Canal. The election ot United States Senator In Ohio will probably demonstrate that every man has bis Brice. The whipping post is a guide board to barbarism. Gossip of the Day One ot the many stories told of Rev. Dr. Talmagc, who has Just been chosen as co pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, perhaps none better show his unselfish interest and self -sacrificing disposition than one told by D. J. Roberts, of 12 lONorth Capitol street. "It was In the winter of 1890," said Mr. Roberts, "that I first saw Taltnage. I was then residing In Osage City, Kas., and was instrumental in securing the services of Dr. Talnuigc for a lecture before one cf tlio liti rary societies of that city. "The night before Dr, Talmage arrived in Osage City, after a asperate and bloody flght.a burglar was captured. On being taken to the Jail It was found that he was mortally wounded. Well, after the lecture I related the story of the fight and the cap ture of the burglar to Dr. Tnlnugc and asked if he would like to see him. "It was cold and slushy and the rain was falling in torrents, bat It did not deter the doctor, who, with his son, went with nic to the Jail. There we found the dying burg lar Ijing on his cot, suffering ternbleagony. Dr. Talmagc approached his bedside and spoke to him in a soft, kind voice. The djing man evidently recognized the voice, for he made an effort to turn over. "Seeing this, the nurse gently turned him so he coald sco Dr. Talmagc. It was plain that ho recognized the doctor by his voice. Dr. Talmagc asked him if he knew mm. He replied tliat he did and had often heard liipi preach, and added that now heregretted that he had not followed his adv Ice. "The doctor aeke.1 him his name, lmt he would not give It in full. He Enid his name was "Jim." Everybody knew him and spoke ot him as 'Jim, the burglar,' and he was glad they knew no more. "Well, right there by that little cot In the Jail Dr." Talmage knelt down ami prajed long and fervently for the forgiveness of the sins of the burglar. Mini.' After remaining there sometime longer, offering what consokitlon we could, westarted back and I accompanied the doctor to his hotel. Dr. Talmage ai.d his son went to their roonib and I Mopped hi the corridor to pjieak to a friend. "I was standing there, when suddenly Dr. Talmage pa'sed me and went out into the cold, dark, floppy night. I followed him. He went to the Jail and parsed to the Inside. I waited for some time, but the doctor did not come out. -The next morning I called at the Jail and asked the sheriff about what had oc cuered the night previous. He told me that the doctor had returned and asked permis sion to remain with the dj lng man. His re quest was granted by the jailor, and all night long did Dr. Talmage kneel by the dj ing burglar's bedside and pray with him and for him. It was not until he was obliged to leave to take bis train for St. Louis did he bid dying 'Jim' good-bye." Moy Blng Don, proprietor of a laundry at No. C17 Seventh street southwest, has the honor ot being the first Chinese resi dent of the District to be provided with a passport and credentials allowing him to visit his native country and return to Uie United States. He left this city jestsr (Uyfor Tacoma. Wash., where he will take the steamer direct for China, and for the three mouths ensuing he will revel In the mellow sunshine and roam around the rice fields of his own land. According to the terms of the treaty concluded between the United States and China on the fifteenth day of the sixth moon ot the tenth yearof Kwanghsu, other wise called the 17th of November. 1880, the Celestial has a good deal more trouble when he makes up his mind to leave this country for a short time than do the ex rcsideuts of other countries. The treaty was held for the purpose of regulating and restricting Chinese emigra tion to this country, and under its provis ions Chinese laborers arc not allowed to come Into the country, nnd those who are here must comply with many conditions before they can take a trip to their Chi nese home, with the prospect of returning. The person desiring to visit China must go before the collector of customs of the port nearest to him, and certify to his res idence, age, name,' occupation, give a complete description ot himself, certify to his family, his financial condition, nnd the amount of money owed him by residents of the United States, and state how long he expects to remain a way. These facts are then set forth in an of ficial passport, of which three copies are made. To each copy Is attached a photograph of the Chinaman, and if he meets with any accident while away, suf ficient to alter bis personal appearance. "his name is Dennis." One copy ot the passport is retained at the port to which application is made, another is sent to the port from which he sails, and lie is given the third. He must return to the United States by Ihesame port and the same route he leaves, and must have his passport Intact. Moy Blng Don complied with all the requirements of the law, and accompanied by his little nine-year-old son, left for Chicago yesterday. There he will Join a large party of Chinese, all of whom are going to China by the same route. Pleasant Proxpect. Neighbor I hear that your master has married again and is taking a bridal tour.

We are going to prove a few things here this morning right in front of the crowd; you know just as well as we do that there isn't a Clothiug House in the city of Washington that has ever been known to cut prices in the BEGINNING of a new season whether it be summer or .winter; these are the times when prices are held right up to the highest notch. After the season advances a little somebody jumps in with a "discount sale" and from that minute the clothing trade is in a state of panic. Dealers get red in the face trying to demonstrate how much lower prices are during these reduction sales than they were at the beginning of the season. We're going to be honest and admit that we have had these reduction sales and they were GENUINE, too but from tick of the watch our store will have just ONE price in the beginning in the middle and at the end of ALL SEASONS. Our new fall stock is here it's better and bigger than any we have ever had before and it is too good to be TRIFLED with. When we. tell j'ou that a suit or overcoat is worth Sio (and we've got stacks of them at this price) you can bet your last dollar that it is as good as ten dollars will buy ANY WHERE. We have established a manu factory at 185 Market street, Newark, N.J. every garment is union-made when it's finished it comes straight to US we pay tribute to no jobber no middleman.

JUDGE BEADLEY'S ACTION It Will Have-nil Important Bcaring;on .Similar l'roccedlng in the Future iluy Ni-ccaxttute Hcvl-lon of Mili tary Practice The Prisoner and Ills Counsel Very Ileticent. The case of ex-Lieut. Gen. Schofield against MaJ. George A. Armes has resolved luclf Into a etise of the United States Court against the United States Army. This i practically Involved in the arrest of MaJ. Armes by the military arm of the govern ment and his release on habeas corpus, by Judge Bradley. Military people know that If this act of Gen. Schofield had taken plaee out on the plains Ma. Armes would be still cooling his heels in close arrest, with perhaps a sentry on eternalparadebeforehls tent door. The action of Judge Bradley was like a Ihuudcr-cUp to a gieal rnany'of the mili tary gentlemen on full and half pay, and they are undoubtedly watching, as is every other citizen, the result of the fight wliich will be renewed for the possession of Maj. Armes on Saturday next. Good la wycrs areof theopinion that when Capt. Cummlngs brought Ma J. Armes before Judge Bradley iu response tn the writ of habeas corpus. Judge Bradley bad one of three things to do. He could have dis charged hltu forthwith; he could have re mitted him to the custody of Col. Clossonv or he could nave continued the case on ball. He determined to do the last, aud that is where the case now stands. SECRETARY LAMONT'S COURSE. Secretary Lamout, who succeeds to the position iu relation to the ease held by Gen. Schofield, has only one thing to do, If the "honor of the Army" is to be main tained, aud that is to send a representative of the goviTiinient before Judge Bradley to argue that Maj. Armes should be re manded forthwith to the custody of the military. In order tn determine what rhould lie clone at the hearing Judge Bradley will probably insist on knowing what the charge is, be cause one of the grounds on which he granted the writ was that Maj. Armes was held without a charge being specified. It Is generally understood that the charge is insubordination, insulting a superior of ficer, and kindred allegations. Whether or not there is good ground on which charges and specifications may be madeout by the Adjutant General. Is not the ques tion before Judge Bradley, but whether Maj. Armes can be Imprisoned pending the preparation of such charges. In case Judge Bradley dismisses Maj. Amies from the arrest under wliich he is held by the military ruling or action will have an important bearing on procedure in similar cases. It the prisoner is discharged a revision of the military practice will be in order If It is corsidrrcd necessary, as in this case, to hunt an officer out of his house at night and keep him under close arrest until somebody finds out at the War Depart ment what the prisoner wnsarrcsted for. DEPARTMENT IGNORED. It will bo rememlierrd that for several days nobody from the Department knew what the arrest was for. They knew that a letter was sent to Gen. Schofield, but they did not know whether or not that was the cause of Uie arrest. Maj. Armes was called on last nlghtand was asked If he would outline his defense in case the letter wnsmade part of the pro ceedings at the hearing ot the habeas corpus proceedings nn Saturday. He said that It would be improper for him to talk at this J'lncturcaslielvunderarrestandhascounsel in the case, and also out ot courtesy to the Department. Messrs. Ralston and Biddons were also asked i f they would talk on the subject, but they are just now keeping their own counsel under close arrest, nnd will not talk for publication. .iihum'w.

If Major Amies is discharged from the custody of the War Department, and a court martial is ordered, the papers from the Department will do doubt be served In the regular way. It ie not at all un likely that every time Major Armes is arrested he w ill be released on bail by the court. If Judge Bradley remards Major Armes to the Washington Barracks for safe-keeping, there will poesibly be an appeal or an other application for habeas corpus, nnd so the case ill drag alorg until all the legal remedn'S in his behalf have been exhausted Some surprise has been expressed by Major Amies' counsel that Judge Bradley has lieen criticlse-d for granting the writ at all acd the continuance of the case for ten days. Article I, tection 9. of the Constitution. says: "The privilege of the w rit of habeas corpus shall not be suspended unless whin i in case of a rebellion or invasion the public .' safety may require it. Major Armes was not in rebellion, and. so far as the "public safety" requiring his arrest was coi.rorncd. he was quietly smoking a Cbevy Chase Havana when the Invasion of the soldiers took place at ills home.

The objectionable matter was extremely inflammatory, containing such sentences as "Remove your police ard meet us on the platform," ai d "The basis of government throughout the world eclrg neither good ness or Justice, the great leeson mankind have to leani Is how they may Epeedily deliver themselves from the moral and political theories wlrch enslave them." Other papers, such as "Iltbel ard fire brard," are being distributed, and In spector Scliaack, 'nho dees rot try to con ceal his alami at tl'e new anarchistic movement, is anxious to put a stop to the spreading of this class of literature. Several meetings have recently been announced by the anarchists, and when the police visited tho place advertised, no meeting was found. It is the opinion or the Inspector that the anarchists advertise a meeting at a certain place in order to deceive the police, and then carry on their tecret conferences in some out-of-the-way nook ot comer. w BOSTON G MEETS Cni.HEHSOX. .Meeting In People's Temple Expresses Sympathy YCItta llU".
