Of course the professional and persist
ent humorist will make It a point to
exhaust his run upon the gentle females of
the bovine race for the drought they have
forced upon the city, but really It is no
laughing matter. Wholesome milk is one
of the most, if not the most, wholesome
of drinks, especially in hot weather, and
It goes without saying that all the milk
that Is sold In Washington is wholesome.
Other cities have their chalk and water,
but Washington has gcoulne cow's milk.
This has been ascertained by the unanimous
voice of dairymen and milk dealers.
While the dealers say the fault lies with
the dairymen for this sudden lack of
thousands of galluns ot the usual supply,
and dairjmen fling the responsibility upon
the cows, the curiously Impetuous coming
of the drought suggests another reason.
Trices in a moment go up to double and
treble the usual charge. This smells of a
combine. While there is yet no evidence of
collusion of dealers. It is almost bejond
belief that the cows should have so sur
prisingly ce.ised the gentle process of milk
creation in the twinkling of an eye. Tas
ture is not poorer than it usually is at
this season, and even If It were, corn is
cheap, brewery mash is cheaper, bran slops
are Inexpensive, and, therefore, at last the
dairyman is responsible.
At the heart of this strange milk famine
there will probably be found a deep, dark,
secret, sinister, far-reaching syndicate of
menandnotof cows. That reason, and not
the udder reason , explains the drought.
The blory ot the rise and fall of the
National Lithographic. Company, which pre
tended for a time to print the Patent
Office Gazette, recalls to memory the brief
but remarkable career of lion. Josiah
Qulncy, Assistant Secretary ot State under
the first Cleveland administration.
Qulncy assumed great airs, possibly be
cause ot his name. He was really gay in
offering advice and giving opinions. Very
often he appeared the bc-alland the end-all
of the government. He was quoted to an
extent which might well make Secretary
Morton green with envy.
Suddenly in the midst of his glory, in the
very hey-day and harvest time of his noto
riety, he was discovered to have used Li?
ofrlcial influence to secure for a sluggish
creditor ot his the contract for printing the
Talent Office Gazette. If the concern bad
been able to make their contract good all
might have gone well. Its failure brought
an investigatloa which exposed the part
played by the Assistant Secretary ot State.
Qulncy fell. He passed out ot office and
out of sight. He wasscarccly pitied, because
ot his peculiar assumption of knowledge
and virtue. The bale atauction ot the litho
graphic concern in which he was, as long
as be could be, a silent partner, is the last
act ot a performance which should be a
warnfng to all public officials who are
temptedto use their places to influence
outside speculation.
It was loo hot for the authorities of Al
exandria county to look after law-breakers
yesterday, but It was cot too hot for the
speak-easy saloons and gambling bouses.
The Times' Investigator found these re
sorts in full blast, though somewhat par
ticular as to whom they permitted to
enler""lheir Eanctunts. Neither heat nor
frost nor bail nor thunder can deter these
industrious creatures from prosecuting
their calling. Only the sheriff and prose
cuting attorney can do that, and yesterday
was one of the days that was too hot for
tbcm to move.
There is a cool wave within scenting

The summer has Indeed been sultry and

Attorney Johnson to give constant at
tention to the peace and good order oftheir
bailiwicks, when the mercury gently whis

course no whisper from the law-breakers
has anything to do with tl.cir unceasing
Inertia. The pubbc will watcb with In

Lces than a week ago Mrs. Tanderbilt
denied that stories of her daughter'sengage
ment to the Duke of Marlborough had a
grain of truth. Following closely this
denial the young duke formally announced
the engagement and last evening, as the
prcES dispatches say. Miss Consucla herself
saw the New York reporters and con
firmed the duke's version of the matter.
The great public which has been forced
to bear the infliction of thece reports, which
were assumed to be of international im
portancet will now, it IB to be hoped, be
relieved for Eome time to come ot this
nauEcating Vanderblltiana. The Bum of
the whole affair is that the income of the
bouse ot Marlliorough is too small to sup
port itR pretensions.
The duke decided to follow in the foot
steps of that almost Incomparable old roue,
his father, who married the widow Ham
merely under a definite agreement that her
millions should repair fortunes which he
bad dissipated In notorious excesses. The
present duke appears to be an improvement.

Forecasts of the coming congress ot Ger
man Social Democrats at Brcslau Indicate
that there will be a bot discussion of the"
question of salaries. Like other trans
atlantic governments Germany gives no
compensation to her law makers. This Is
quite judicious In such countries, as it de
bars the poor from represcntatlonandpla res
parliaments under the control of the rich.
If, therefore, the working classes are to
be represented by legislators from tbelr own
ranks they must contribute maintenance
from their own meager means. This Is now
done In Great Britain and in all European
countries, thougn-ln each of the parliaments
there are representatives of the proletarians
who are able to pay their way and gladly
do It.
In Germany even great leaders like
Lelbknechl nnd Babel arc forced to depend
upon the maintenance fund or retire from
the Itclchstag. They and other leaders re
ceive varying salaries, the maximum be
ing 3,000 mark, or about $750. A fac
tion has sprung up which Is opposed to their
careful leadership and whicb Is determined
to forcedown to a modest figure thlsraunlfl
cenl salary on which, It Is declared, these
men arc living like nabobs.
This- must sound extremely amusing to
American ears. Here national legislators
receive $5,000 per year, mileage galore, sta
tionery, private secretaries and other little
perquisites too numerous to mention. They
look upon this as really mean pay for their
valuable services. How would they like to
try $7G0 as an experiment?
It may be said sneeringly that this is
good pay for the class ot men who receive
it. The fact Is that nearly every repre
sentative ot the Social Democrats in the
Uclchstag is a person of refinement and
education, who would have easily amassed
fortune in business or professional life. The
party bas an immense influence. At the
last general election it polled nearly two
million votes and returned forty-five mem
'bers to the Reichstag. It has halted the
Emperor in more than one ot his policies.
Doubtless a loss ot a portion ot their
nabob-like salaries will not swerve them
from their peaceful revolutionary purposes.

long hair streaming about his shoulders

Anti-Saloon Leasuo MiiMH-Meetlnp; In
Foundry Clinrcli.
The services at tbo Foundry M. E.
Church yesterday afternoon were under
the auspices of the ADtl-Saloon League.
Mr. William H. Pcnnell was in charge,
and addresses were delivered by Judge
Anson S. Taylor and Rev. Walter Brooks,
of the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church.
Mr. Pennell opened the meeting with a
few introductory remarks, in the course
of whicb be pleaded for individual as
sistance in closing the saloons in this city.
He said that he thought the saloon-keepers
were fighting a losing game, and that
God's plan in downing this evil was work
ing gradually but admirably.
Judge Taylor delivered a red-hot temper
ance address. He read a part of Major
Moore's report to the Commissioners for
the year ended June 30, 1894, which
showed that 21,323 people, one-tenth, of
the population of the city, bad been ar
rested. The speaker said that a large
majority of these arrests were occasioned
by the use ot intoxicating liquor.
"This-traffic," he said, "is as big an
evil as Its father the devil himself and
we should all adopt the motto of the
Antl Saloon League, 'The Saloon Must
Go.' "
Rev. Dr. Brooks expressed many decided
views of this saloon question, and told of
several excellent remedies for the evil.
He said that he thought every Christian
citizen in this city owed the colored people
a duty, for the majority of the people who
were arrested and compelled to suffer on
account of being addicted to the liquor
habit were colored people, at the mercy
ot the white saloon-keeper. Dr. Brooks
thought that the day srould soon come
when every saloon in the country would
be closed, but thai day would never come
wittiout -a, struggle.
"We all have ocr part to perform,' he
said, "and In order to have that day soon
at hand we will all have to do our duty."

printed exclusively In The Times and also
nn account of the proposed action of theem
ployes who thought it advisable to deillne
to sign their names to tho epistles, becauso
they feared it would put them on record on
a matter wbit.li they thought should bo
left to the" Judgment or the management of
tho-Auacostla Hallway.
The request of President Grlswold was
that the-questlons should be answered and
turned In by the 21st of this month. At tho
time a statement was made that a certain
driver had been selected by the men to receive-
the letters from each driver and re
fer the matter to the Railway Union for
thclractlnn. Later it was stated that George
Hcile, who is the Railway Union committee
man on the sick, among the Anacostia men,
would bo the one to receive the copies and
that it had been determined to put them to

all the letters were delivered unsigned and
without auy word of explanation.
Mr. Lusby, auotber driver, said his

received thrqeotthe copies. He believed
it was intended to put them in a box and
deliver them Intlie of rice, but as he had
nothing to do with it, and had been absent
for a day or two, he was ignorant of what

President ,Gr)swold was seen at his
home Saturday night. He said he had
been 111 all day and had not been to the
offlce.and was not fully aware of whathsd

letters had tjt-eu turned in and as far as
be knew, two or. three bad been answered.
The! opinion prevailed among the men.
that while there was a great deal of rals
undersuindlngon the part of the men as to

not answer them, it was not creating much
of a stir among tlicm. In fact not sufficient

May Wipe Out Hunker Hill.
London, Sept. 22. In commenting upon
the contest In New York on Saturday, be
tween the teams 'of the Loudon Athletic
Club and the New York 'A'tLlelic Club, the
Standard says:
'"It"is ImiiossiWe to conceive of anything
more disastrous than the 'experience of
the English athletes. It would be pre
iwsterous to attempt to explain away such
u defeat."
The Daily "Newp says: "It Is a comfort
to feel that one has been beattn rairly. The
victory of the New York Athletic Club was
no chance victory. The more we have of
these contests tbe better. Who knows that
Bunker Hill may not be wiped out b this
high Jump?"
Tho liaily Telegraph comments as follows
upon tho contcsu: "The New Yorkers won
on their merits without a shadow or doubt,
bjt the London Athletic Club may Justly
tecl that in this Instance their reputation
was hazarded In a highly unsatisfactory
manner, owing to the absence of some of
their best men."

consolation that can be extracted. The
beating Is certainly without a parallel hi

Dr. Burnett treated It with nitrate of sil

A couple of hours later, while shaving, he
cut a Ellght gash in ills left cheek. To
check the hemorrhage, he applied come
alum, using tho same finger as in tbe

A month later a email, gland llkeswcliing,
developed on Dr. Burnett's cheek. He
thought little about It at first, but as it
became more troublesome, he recalled the
incident of the cutting while (shaving and
consulted high medical authorities. The
swelling of bis face was diagnosed as a
cancer and tbe doctor submitted to an
operation for its removal. But the can

Cliurcli Nineteen Tonne 'Women

Nineteen younc women all dressed in
white occupied the pulpit at the Calvarv

Mary Clement Leavitt, "the Columbus of the
W. C. T.U.," aDd the young women were the
choir recenUy organized hy the Young
Women's llrunch, aud yesterday made their
first appearance to sins in public together.
It was a pretty picture. They were all
dressed in gome soft white woolen stuff
cut something after the fashion of a priest's
robes, with long pointed sleeves.. They
wore caps of Uie same stuff of mitershape.
They were artistically grouped upon the
rostrum and sang under the guidance of Mr.
Robert E. Fountain, precentor of Mt. Vernon
Place Methodist Church. His robe was cut
the same as that of the, choristers but was
black. He wore no cap.
Tbe ungicg was all that had been hoped.
It was a little uneven in places, but in gen
eral was smooth, strorg, and sweet. For
meetings such as those where tills choir
is to be used lltUc could be desired to make
it more effective.
Mrs. S. D. La Fctra pretided. The ex
ercises began with the marching hymn of
the choir, followed by the singing of
True, Wbole-hcariid" and "The Eye of
Faith." Miss Martha Haircs then read
the "Crusade," Psalm No. 14G, at-d Miss
Sadie White offered prayer. The choir
again filled the room with music, tirgtng
"Only Beam of Sunshine," and Miss Shclton
read a carefully-prepared and instructive
sketch of the life of Mrs. Leavitt, telling
how she was called to the work she did
and tbe means she used to accomplish her
mission of carrying the W. C. T. U. tidings
around the world.
After the singing of "Speed Away" Mrs.
Clara P. Schlll read a paper on "Incidents
of Mrs. Leavitt's Work."
Mrs. Ella Myers Conwell sang well 'Can
a Doy Forget His Mother's Prayer?"
Mrs. La Fctra then introduced Rev. E.
Olin Eldridge, who made a bright and stir
ring address on "Christian Citizenship."
The members ot the choir are: F. Jo
sephine Gillenwater, Emma O. Toepper,
Mary Tuthil, L. Lillian Dyer, Bertha Grey,
Mary M. Folks. Lucrctia Lacy, Alice A
Barns. Clara Nlsbec Stewart, Hazel Hender

dispatch ot yesterday stated that Miss

for several years, having been greatly bene
