They will prove it with vigor whenever tiiey are called upon to do" Tliey are proving it to-day . The outward manifestations of this pa- trio' imii to-dny take the form of vocal and red, white and blue pyrotechnics. The in wjrd iiMnif citations are in every true Amem an's heart. We love our country. We glory in Its history. We look with pride upon Its won derful development. We believe in its -future. Beneath all the welcome noise and physi cal demonstrations of this Fourth of July lies the iM- spirit of "the men of '70." Politicians may animadvert, anarchists may rave and foreigners may scoff, but we are all right. The Declaration of Independence has been fruitful of marvelous results that its (signers scarcely dreamed of. Greater bless ings are to come. The &pmnnids may call our starry ban ner a "dl-rag," but they fear it. In other ooMirfries its appoarance may not be pleasaitt, but it is rctpected. It may offend the eMliotic tastes of certain so called Americans, but they have grown prosperous under it. "Certain inalienable rights" have not 3 et been realized by every man and woman in this republic, because of the uncontrolled ambitions of corporations and trusts and the perjry of inon in Ingb places, but time and Intelligence and honest effort will properly adjust this state of things. We are on the eve aye, in the very noon day of better times. Men and women, too know their rights and are asserting them, not iu any blatant spirit, but with a true concept jou of the genius of our insti tutions. Tlio fair goddess of Prosperity Is abroad in the laud, and Independence Day means more than it has for a long tirre. All will yet be well. Then let us cele brate to our heart's content. IIOTELEIt AND TIIE UNION. The union conductors and gripmen of the Columbia Street Railway seem to ha vegood cause for complaint against Superintendent Bolder. A series of punishments for petty effenses are the result of their affiliating Tvithtlieprotectlveassoclatiou.andunlessthe board of directors promptly put au end to these nagging persecutions the men will be compelled to resign theirpositious orask the mediation of the entire union. A measure that might result in a general strike. Strangely enough corporations seldom recogulzethe good to be derived from organ ized labor. They are inclined to look upon labor unions as bodies of banded ruffians -wliise sole object is to rob employers through arbitrary methoda. There never was a greater mistake. It is true that cor porations often find themselves at variance with organ! zedlabor.but almost invariably the conflict is brought about to redress the wrongful acts of corporation tools, rather than to enforce an unjust demand. Tho case of the Columbia railroad Is a good lilurtratlon. Supt. Boteler is afraid of organized labor. A partof tbeconductors nnd gripmen belong to the protective as sociation, and be has determined to drive them off the road bylinjust and arbitrary treatment. Kindness, courtesy aud an attempt to be Just would prove far more effective in securing tho best efforts of bis employes, and if Supt. Boteler will cdopt this policy he need have no fear of organized labor. WASHINGTON AT ATLANTA. , Tho citizens of the District are called tipon by the local Atlanta Exposition cora fnisslon to contribute the few thousand dol lars -which it will cost to box, ship and properly display the various exhibits col lected here for the gireat Interstate oxposl. 'tionln the capital city or tbo Empire State of the South. No doubt seed be entertained that the response to thisrequest willbespon-tan-ous and that tho required amount will bi iu the hands of the committee in a very abort time". ' ' ' - - Tho exhibit is or JiiBt-such a character as is calculatd to attract to "Washington a population desirous of living in a cultured community. -Jtwilr-show the work of our public schools; tho work of Washington artists; books ami manuscripts of Washing ton author--; historic relics and acts of tho women's peace congress. These will give tangiblo eyidence of the great progress this city is making as an educational, scientific, literary and artistic center, and will add to the many evidences thatserveto make Wash ington attractive as a place of residence for iwr-vons of wealth and leisure. All this, of course, is only what is known as the official exhibit. There will be individual exhibits in proof of Wash ington's growth as a commercial and indus trial city a fact too frequently lost sight of iu the overshadowing operations of the government. When it Is remembered that this city, according to census statistics, ranks a way up among manufacturing com munities, it will lie conceded that a fine showing can be made iu this respect at the Southern exposition. Both the official and, unofficial exhibits will serve to put Washington In the fore ground of "attractions at Atlanta. PHOl'EIt CENSUHE. Secretary Heiliert in disapproving the findings of the court-martial iu the case of Lieut. Dorn.ofthe Olympia. through whose failure to fill, or have tilled, a recoil cyl inder, a gun burst and killed a gunner, but whom the court acquitted, reads a" very caustic but apppropriate lecture to all naval officers, but especially to a class who appear to regard their positions as imiHising only individual but not general re sponsibility. The Secretary emphasizes the generally recognized maxim that the greater the au thority the greater the responsibility, and expiesses Mirprise at what appears to be great laxness iu ah-Jgning the different " kinds of work on board of a vessel. Upon tho circumspeetiou of naval of ficers in positions of command aboard ship depends uot only their own surety, but that of liundredsof subordinates and large property Interests. The slightest relaxation of care may cause disaster in volving loss of life or the maimiug of men, as in the preseut instance. It would appear from tho strictures of the Secretary that this unfortuuate conditiou is not infrequent, and hence the overhauling given Lieut. Horn, therefore, touches witli equal force every officer in the naval service. It may bo expected that after Secretary Herbert's vigorous utterances, the fault complained of will be greatly remedied, if not entirely abated. Miss Ida Morgan, a well-educated and ac complished young colored woman, in every way fit to be a teacher in thepubhcschools, lias been rejected solely on account of her color. Tills did not happen south of Mason and Dixon's line, but in Providence, It. I. Comment is unnecessary. Water, water everywhere, and not drop fit to drink. Senator Stewart's motto: silver." "Speech is The Chicago Times-Heraldsaysthat"fifty jer cent of the criminal habitues of Chicago have left the city and gone to regions where " police surveillance is less severe and punish tneut or the offenses committed not 60 cer tain." They must have heard of Jackson City. Some people know when Sunday comes only by finding the saloons closed. Do not see too many stars on the flag Jo-day. Alcoholic patriotism never .amounted to much. Colorado last year produced $2,000,000 more of gold than of silver, and yet it is the center of the fTee silver craze. Tho last cable and horse car in Phila delphia has been displaced by the trolley. Additions to the picturesque graveyards of Ihe Quaker City are now in order. It will not bo altogether necessary for you to "shoot off your mouth" to-day. Let us not forget to-day that "boys will be boys." Don't try to make them anything elsa. Policeman Mohl mustn't mind the smoke to-day. Tolstoi has taken to cycling. The moral effects of the wheel on literature will work agreeable wonders in the years to come. CAHPEXTEHS A HE DETEHMIXED. Union Men Will Not Acccpr Work on tho Cat hollo University. The war being waged with the Catholic University contractors by the Carpenters' Council of the city shows no signs of abat ing, and the labor organizations propose to allow none of their members to go to work upon the building until the standard wages are paid to the carpenters. They say they do not intend to Ftrike or in any way interfere with the work, but simply to let the public know that this great institution is being erected by men who are working for less than union wages. It is claimed that the contractors arc taking advantage of the hard times which have recently prevailed, and are securing labor at a figure which no carpenter would accept except for the fact that he can get nothing else to do. The union laborers have all been called off, and when the Building Trades' Coun cil has taken action upon the matter some difficulty will be found in getting men to do the finer class of work. Mr. M. D. Hose, the vice president or the Carpenters' Council, was interviewed last night and ho said that no men who are members of tho District organizations represented in tho Carpenters Council aro now in the employ of the university contractors and he further affirms that none will work there until they receive 52.&0 per day. The carpenters are by no means thronga with the affair, and Fay they intend t submit the facts to the Building Trades' Council, Federation of Labor, and the Knights or Labor. In regard to the Childs house now being erected and on whici union men are not allowed to work, the unioii people are t-till p'.anning to .secure recogni tion. They claim that they have been misrepre sented to Mrs. Childs and are coiilident sho will not, when .made aware of the facts of the case, pursue any course opposed to organized labor, -which her husb'aud so long aided. Sworn affidavits of ecmc union men who worked on the building will be sent to her.

The Woman's Edition or The Times, is "suetl yesterday morning, hits haflpily met Willi ihe most gratiijing success. From every side the encomiums have poured In. There has been nothing bJt praise for the successful accomplishment of the stupen dous undertaking. The paper so brought out by the leading women of Washington is a credit to ail concerned. There is a lea lure, and not the least important one that must not, however, be loit sight of in the shower of congratula tions. It is that the papers has been issued wholly and solely for the purpose of pro viding funds for the Home for Incurables. Thut great charity after the niesent month will be absolutely wltuuui lunds to carry on its daily expenses. To meet this deplorable deliciency, (he Woman's Edition lias come into being. Ix?t the help to carry out financially the great literary success be as gratiryinglysho ivii and the re sult will be all that can be desired. The out-of-town and foreign orders have been large Let the people of the District remember the helpless invalid at tho Home for Incurables and come unanimously to the rescue m this respect and nuke the number of copies sold in Washington over whelmingly larger than all of the out-of-town orders combined. In order that theprotits from the Woman's Edition shall be as large as possible, the paper lias been issued entirely separate and distinct from the regular edition of Tho Times. Those who cannot, personally, come to the office to purchase the supplies of the edition desired, can have their orders attended to by mail. In such cases tho stamps, or price of same, should be in cluded m the amount enclosed lor the order of papers. Yesterday morning, bright and early, The Times office presented a most attractive ap pearance when the young ladies who had volunteered to help, by selling the paper, ap peared in their pretty summer costumes. It was a sight appreciated to t lie full by those who cami.ni to buy copies of the wonderful Woman's Edition, a sight which not a few were loath to lun e. It was decidedly more in the nature of a fashionable afternoon ten than a July morning bevy of pretty girls gowned in prettiestuttire of the season. It is a sight that will be repeated this morning, from l to 12 o'clock. Tho girls have given theirquota and contributed their share to the general successfn the most prac tical manner, not only in belling the papers, but in directing, wrapping and mailing the vast mmiborof papers to besentoutof town. Tho good people of Washington should recognize this fact and onenndallcontribute thoir quota in buying tho Woman's Edition and in so doing, contributing to the actual living expenses or the helpless invalids at tho Home for Incurables. Copies of theoditioncan be obtained at the business orfice of The Times at any time on and after July -1. CHASE PROVOKED k STORM Excitement at a Mass Meeting of the Colored Eepublicans. Ho Wanted. McKlnley Indorsed For tho Presidency and Finally In formally Secured a Voto. "Your action, Mr. Chairman," said W. Calvin Chase, the colored editor who has just come out of jail on account of Recorder Taylor, at the Republican mass meeting at Franklin Street Church Inst night, "is unfair, arbitrary and unparliamentary, and by unanimous consent I withdraw the resolution and myself from the meetiug." The resolution referred to was one of fered by Mr. Chase indorsing Hon. William McKinley for President of the United States, and his aetion was the climax of a series or boisterous scenes. The meeting was called to order by C. P. Irby, who btated the one grand object to be the organization of a central Repub lican Club in the District. Hardly had this been done when it was plain that a majority of those present were obstruc tionists, and they lost no opportunity to delay any and all business that came up. Alter considerable acrimonious discussion on parliamentary usages, Mr. G. W.Boston was elected temporary chuirman, and Mr. S. E. Jones, secretary. The temporary organization was then made permanent. At this juncture the irrepressible Lewis Willis took tho floor and started to sjwak and positively refused to be called to order. Tho next to harrangue the crowd was Isaiah Lewis. Heproveatheorganizationofa central club, but thought tlie undertaking at this time premature. He, too, was culled down. At this stag or the proceedings W. H. Simpson, vice president of the fourteenth legislative assembly, wanted to know by wiiat authority such an organization as tho one proposed, could be effected; and if it was tho intention of the promoters or the scheme to interfere with the representation of the fourteenth assembly in the District convention. The chair stated that the proposed or ganization would be known as "a league," and not a'club. In addition, ho explained that the orfice is to secure better repre sentation Tor the colored people of the Dis trict at all national convcnlioas. Then Mr. Chase oirered his resolution. W. C. Cox rose to speak against the adoption of the resolution "because the meeting was not called for the purpose of indorsing any one for the presidency" and then went on to give his own political record. Mr. Chase said "the resolution was of fered in good faith and would rather have some action on it than hear the speaker, Cox, glorifying himself." Everybody was excited by this time and several were trying to get recognition from the chair, and failing in this crowded around his desk. Pandemonium reigned for nearly five minutes, when the chahman settled the matter by declaring the reso lution out of order and dashing it under the table. Mr. Chase, who was standing near by, picked it up, and, holding it above his head, accused the chairman or unfairness. He then offered the resolution to the crowd, who endorsed it with a whoop. The meeting then adjourned sine die. To-day 'h Morning Programme.

You can't spend the forenoon in a better manner. Han Away with tho Machine. Charles Kenney, eighteen years old, was arrested last night by Policeman Lynch, of the Sixth precinct, and locked up at the station house, charged with petit larceny. Charles went to a drug store on the corner of New Jersey avenue and E streets north west and embracing a nickei-in-l he-slot machine, started away with it. He was caught by the clerk, however, who had him arrested. Hulf Hat est o Falls Church, Vlonnaand llerndon, Vn., July 4.

Domer Denies That. Ho Used Any Influunco to Prevent. Action. Ho Wus Surprised, HecauisO tho Order Wuh Haswl Upon the Inwpeo tlon A Separate Company. The order of Gen. Ordway disbanding the Fencihles, or Company C, Second Bat talion, was the subject of nearly all the gossip yesterday in military circles. It was the talk of the soldiers at the armory liist night, where members or the Fencihles held their ola room Just as it nothing had happened. Military etiquette, however, prevented them from discussing the order of their superior officer. What was said was tho keynote: "The Fencihles are all right, but Company C is in the Foup;" this, in fact, being tlie language of a Fencible without a present military occupation. Another of the disbanded men said: "Oh, you can say that we ure simply Fuspended in the air; Just floating about in space." Cupt. Domer is about the most undismayed of the company. Yesterday he telegraphed the National Rides at St. Louis: "Company C no longer exists, but the Fencihles Join me In wishing -you every possible success." The Rifles telegraphed last night in re sponse: "Excellent inspection yesterday. Firs class drill this morning. "Maiison made no mistake and had time to spare. Rifles send you greeting, audi want you back in the National Guard." I UNDERCURRENT OF TALK. While there Is a great deal of the under cu rrent of the talk among other members of the guards adverse to the Fcncibles and Justifying the discipline, there is also a great dal of criticism of the manner in which the order was conveyed to tho Fencihles. As thTe has been a good deal of specula tion as to what the Funcibles will do and their position before the soldiers of the country Capt. Domer was asked last night for an expression of bis views. He said: "I had intended palling on Gen. Ordway to-day to find out. what aro his intentions as to the order, but, ho was out or the city. Or course, it is understood that in our pres ent relations I catuiot m any way criticise the action or a superiororficer. Therefore I would prefer to say but little and would not. except toco rrect some fnise impressions lert on the public mind by some of tho newspapers. "Tue situation issimply this: An orderhas been issued disbanding the company, and there is nothing in it providing for the discharge or resignation of the officers at all. Gen. Ordway has not indicated what he wishes us to do. As individuals we arc still of the National Guards, although the com pany is not. "As to the terms, tho language of the order, I have-to say that it was not exactly what I expected; It was a surprise to me, as it was to everybody else, I did not think that the issue would be made on the inspection. I nesumed that it would be ou the non-attendance in camp. USED NO INFLUENCE. "Oneofthenewspapershas intimated that we had used influence to prevent this action on the part or Gen. Ordway. That is not true. The matter has been with him abso lutely. I have not had any talk with him on the subject, and the members of the company had nothing to say. If Gen. Ordway has taken exceptions to newspaper talk, that is hisaflair. "Another error : An afternoon paper makes the point that as we are out of the National Guard we will not be permitted to take part in any annual competition drill. These annual drills are restricted simply to regularly organized white companies and as a matter of fact other t han National com panies have taken part in such compe titions." Capt. Domer said thatlliere was nothing in the speculation that the Fencihles would go into the National Rines. He In timated, however, that there would always be the Fencihles among "military organiza tions. Capt. Domer will probably have an interview with Gen. Ordway to-day when he will return from New York; The civilian side of the enibroglio is to some extent given in the following ex pression of opinion: "I think they have treated the -Fencihles very unkindly. They are first class young men, intelligent, bright, fcober, industrious, faithful to their employers, aud have al ways been a success in military and social lire. They have given more stimulus to tlie military than any oiher company of the city." FOR THE SACRIFICE. "It looks to mo ns if the Fenciblcs havo been designated, for khe sacrifice. They certainly intended no discourtesy to Gen. Ordway, and if they failed to respond at Fort Washington it was because tboy wcre worked nearly to death by their endeavor to ho ecjujpjied for the military contest at Memphis,'? "The basing of theordcr on a failure in inspection on tlie th of May is rather curious. It seems to me that Gen. Ord way, ir that was the true cause or griev ance, should and would have issued his order immediately, and not waited till the company camo back from Memphis, where, by the way, in the very matter or inspection they made 98. "1 know thut ir several or the boys had attended at Fort Washington they would have lost their places in business, and going was out of the question. "Perhaps it Is a eurmisc 6u my part, hut I think Gen. Ordway lent himself -to certain prejudices and jealousies. Per haps he wasn't given that amount or ob sequiousness which he expected, and in the military, as in politics, cuckooism pays " I Of ST0BK1S Prof. Willis L Mnore Selected to Succeed Harrington.

At that time the correspondence between Dr. Harrington and Secretary Morton, which insulted in his removal isexpectcd to become public and to make very eutertalulng read ing. PROF. MOORE TIIE MAN. Pror. Willis L, Moore, for more than a year in charge of the Weather Bureau office at Chicago, is the man selected as tho new chief of the bureau. He was educated at the Signal Service school at Fort Myer, and rauked eecond hi a grad uating class ol thirty. Ho was then twenty-one years old. He entered the Signal Service work at once, and has remained iii it ever since, iu ull twenty years. He was promoted to bo sergeant in 188(5 Tor devising "new, economical, expeditious mechanical meth ods or issuing dally weather forecasts and maps." Later he look charge of the Minneapolis of flee, and then wus transferred to Milwaukee, where he won fcpeQial ineu tion from Secretary Rusk. Last year in a competitive examination for professor of meteorology he was chosen from thirty scientific experts aud forecasters who were candidates. Tlie examination was under civil service rules, and the uames of candidates were not known till the award was made. The examining board was Dr. Harrington, Dr. Mendt-nhall, then In the Coast Survey, and Major Dunwoody, or tho Weather Bureau. PROFESSOR OF METEOROLOGY. Upon that success he was nppoiuted pro fessor or meteorology, and soon after wa placed in charge at Chicago. During the severe winter he ordered 130 cold wave slguals with the phenomenal result that 1 15 were verified. He predicted the freeze in December that ruined the Florida orange crop. He displayed signals for thirty se vere storms in February and March, aud twenty-seven were verified. He hasseveral times been especially commended by Dr. Ilarrlugton. Prof. .Moore has always been a Itepub licau , and his appointment is claimed to have no relation to iolilics. Secretary Morton had expected to appoint MaJ. Dunwoody, whose rank as a forecaster does not nearly equal Prof. Moore's, but at the last moment Attorney General Harmon gave it as his opinion that the appointment would not be legal. Pror. Moore has been in the city, but is now away. Ho. has been notified of his selection nnd has practically accepted. His commission has been rent to Gray Gables and is expected hero to-day. In the meau time Chief Clerk James R.Cook is in charge of the bureau. II. J. Cox, now forecast official at Chi cago, is expected to succeed Prof. Moore there, although Edward B. Garnott and W. II. nammon, of the office here, tiro Bpoken of for the place. TRACKING A TRAIN ROBBER Leader of the Gang That Used Dy namite at Washington Junction. Dencrlptlon of III in Given the Local Police us He Is Thought to Bo Heading for This City. The detectives In the employ of the Baltitnorc and Ohio Railroad Company are still actively engaged in their investi gation of tho attempt to blow up the money train near Washington Junction, on tlio Metropolitan branch of that line, Monday night. The aid of the local po lice force has also been Invoked, and a description of a man, supposed to have lieen the lender of the gang, has been furnished to thcforce. It Is thought that there were ar-least three, and possibly five members of the gang who attacked the train with dynamite. Immediately after tlie explosion Jarred the train Engineer A. G. Gartrell threw open the throttle and got the train over that portion of the track that was injured by tlie force of the explosion before it was derailed. The members of the crew then returned to the scene of the disaster. They were armed and expected a battle. They could hear the robbers whistling to each other in the woods and could hear voices, but those soon died away, and nil grew quiet. The man, whose description was fur nished to the local police, as tlio jjiipposed ringleader, had been seen in that neighbor hood for several days, and slept in box cars near Wabhiiigton Junction. The de tectives learned also that he purchased some dynamite from a country store near the junction. Detectives Grannan and Lloyd, of the Baltimore aud Ohio force, me conviuced that he made his way across the country to this city. Tlie supposed leader is described as being about thirty years old, five foot, eight inches tall, has a slender neck, thin, sharp features, and wore a black suit of clothes a white shirt and a standing collar. His description lias been read to the police and they have beeu specially ordered to look out for him. The robbers could not have chosen a bet ter spot for their purpose. A steep em bankment lines either side of the track for several hundred yards west of the bridge across the Big Monocacy, aud had the attempt been successful the cars would have beeu thrown a distnnco of from firty to seventy-five feet, to the Iwttom. Every possible effort is being made to apprehend the ringleaders, both by the local police force and tlie Baltimore and Ohio detectives, and Chief Grannan ia confident that beforo many days havo elapsed the highwayman will ho behind the bars. .
