Tin" Circulation of the Stnr Ii Falling
Off The I'uhllc Knows It Friend.
Tlic nggrcgate circulation of the Star last
week was 170, 177. That at ThcTlnies 'was
213,103, which shows a circulation, of
42,088 more than the Star. Whether or not
iLis ii crease is due to the srnrling of flste
doc weekly publications which "some one"
has set at the heels of The Times would be
difflcuttuidetcrmlnc, but that lsqultcanat
ral inference.
The Times Is decidedly the best dally in
Washington, and the more advertising It
secures the greater will be its circulation.
It is possible to fool the public occasionally
by insinuations and monkey paw abuse, but
when the object of such attacks Is really
deserving there can le but one result an
Increase of popularity.

A MASS-MEETING FOIt CUBA.
Inasmuch as other cities are agitating
the question of free Cuba let a day be fixed
here in Washington to hold a mass meeting
tode-larc the sympathy of the National Cap
ital for Cuba's struggling patriots. Mon
day, September 30, has been selected by
Chicago to mark the beginning of a series
of demonstrations which will soon awaken
an overwhelming sentiment In this coun
try in favor of free Cuba, and now in the
nameofliberty, which every American holds
dear, let Washington be the second city to
sdd her toicc and influence to this Just
agitation.
The cause of the Cubans is as patriotic
a- was that of o jr revolutionary forefathers..
They are bitter against monarchical tyranny
and opprLNiivc taxation. These same burden-,
were the cause of a wa r that gave f ree
domtothisconnlry.audasthedcscendantnof patriots we owe our fealty toall others who
btruggle for that great boon of liberty. No
more deserving people ever fought for in
dependence than these Cuban insurrection
' ists. Their causo is Just and their efforts
worthy uur support. As Americans we can
do no Icjs than indorse tt-.eirgallant conduct.
By all means let us hold amass-mecting to
express ojr sympathy for Cuba.
THE TIMES IlltOUGHT IT TO TIME.
The Hiltimore and Ohio Railroad has
finally discovered that the public lias rights
which cannot always be trampled upon,
mid in consequence is guarding its death
trap crossings witii more vigilance since
The Times exposed the falsehood of its
General Agent Alvey.
The company has also found that The
Times is i.ot afraid of its bulldozing tactics,
and that in future it must dcalmorehoncstiy
with Washington people to prevent haying
its questionable methods shown up in their
proper light.
But the most humiliating knowledge
that has come to this corporation Is the
information that its boycott of The Times
was a miserable failure. Its order pro
hibiting the sale of this paper in its
trains ami stations has awakened an In
terest among rcadera that lias been of
great benefit in Increasing the circulation
of The Times, and the war of extermina
tion which General Agent Alvcy boasted
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad had de
clared on the paper that dared to oppose
it turns out an insignificant fiasco.
There are things greater than B. & 0.
lnfluet-re, and one of them is public
opinion.
FOIt CHEAl'EH rilEIGHT KATES.
The Deep Waterway Association now
In conventional ClevclanJ Lsan organization
that should attract more than ordinary
attention. At present there Is little pros
pect of legislation In the direction ofcheaper
methods of transportation, nor lias the
question been sufficiently developed by
practical men to fully establish In the public
mind such a necessity, but the time Is here
when other traffic carriers tlian railroads
must be employed to reach seaports with
far Inland products, ami fronian educational
standpoint the Deep Waterway Association
willdomjch to solve that problem.
Report sajs that the Now York Central
Railroad has secured control of the Eric
canal and that there will be no further
competition In freight rates between the
railroad and that great waterway. It is
olsoknown that all the principal trunUllnes
of the country are combined so far as rates
ore concerned, which, of course, means
higher charges forfrulght from the Middle
and Western States to the Eastern markets,
and the Impossibility of successful com
petition by our great grain producing
lections in European markets.
One of the methods by which this govern
ment could greatly benefit Its people would
lie to establish waterways over which the
Inland country might send its products to
cast?rn and foreign markets without bar
ing to pay such exorbitant toll to railroads.
It costs three times as much to ship a car
load of groin by rajlroad from a western
State to an eastern port as It does to
carry it Ihe rest of the way to Europe by
ocean freight. -It Is tills, excessive rate
IhatjnjisJJje avoided before western pro
ducers can prosper, and for that reason
the cntTFcTnSncl countrythnuld be threaded
with an-oilensive sjbtem.of waterways
reaching totlienccan. The money Congress
Is expected to donate to bulla the Nicaragua
canal would go n long way toward estab
lishing such a system.
THE WONIiEit OF THE AGE.
Just why tlio-graudVJury of Alexandria
county found an Indictment Qgalnet John
Nelson and Frank Foster for keeping a gam
bling house oh life Virginia shore opposite
this city is not known. It Is possible that
complaint was made by nn outside party
or that the indicted men did not "divvy."
Or they raaylrave fallen out with the gang
and their prosecution Is nnnttempt to ob-'aln
revenge. The real cnuee mu3t be a m j stery
to all but those wliA'caif read between the
lines; but It Is wife toprophesy that the find
ing of the .indictment will end the proeecu
tion unices it be an effort to punish forspltc.
There'may bea few1 caseB where-gambling

To be prosecuted for gambling In
Alexandria county is an honor that comes
only once in a llfellmr.. anil John Nelson and

Indictment against them framed and hang
in a. conspicuous place for future reference.
THE SOUTH POLE MVSTEHY.
The report that Lieut. Tcary has been
disappointed in his last polar expedition
is not surprising. The fact that lie ever
returned to the polar "regions, to expose
himself to the dangers and deprivations
of that desolate country after his first ex
perience, is the astonishing part of his
conduct. Eacli lime an explorer tries to
reveal the mysteries of the north pole his
efforts are accompanied by suffering and
fatigue such as no other field of explora
tion can produce, and with every such
report the civilized world wonders at hU
temerity.
For Ecicntific purposes tlio final dis
covery of the north pole may lie necessary,
but, the world has waggedalong fora good
many years without knowing this alleged
important secret, and It seems that by an
extraordinary effort we might manage to
get along without this knowledge for a
little while longer, especially as it requires
the sacrifice of so many lives and tho
enduring of so much suffering.
Ev en were the pole discovered, what else
would be added to the geography of the
world than that which we already know?
Trequent attempts to penetrate that un
known locality have demonstrated that It is
a barren waste of Ice and snow entirely un
inhabited and absolutely uninhabitable. It
might bo possible to still further demon
strate this fact, but beyond that nothing
elsecould be accomplished. Thercarcothers
besides Lieut. Peary who are disappointed
and who are so because of the fact that men
will so foolishly ris k their lives for an empty
honor.
ATTEIl THE 11EEF THTJST.
At last an effort Is to be made to enforce
the nntl-t rust law. Through Information
furnished by Secretary Morton, Attorney
General Harmon has instructed the Dis
trict Attorney atChica go to proceed against
the beef trust. Of course. Armour &
Company and others of the alleged com
bine, disclaim any knowledge of a trust,
but as Secretary' Morton has supplied the
Attorney General's office with important
documentary evidence to tho contrary,
it is to bo hoped that the prosecution
will be both vigorous and relentless.
There are other trusts still more bur
densome and arbitrary than the beef
trust. But unfortunately they do not
happen to come in conflict with su con
scientious a public officer as Secretary
Morton, or they would not remain so long
unpunished. The tobacco trust is now
being tried in the courts of New York
and may find Its Waterloo in that State,
but as a rule trusts' are as exempt from
prosecution in this country as apple blos
soms arejrom loyqslckuess.and the order
of tho Attorney General is a genuine
surprise.
The old lady across the Avenue is still
harping on the overiiead trolley. Last
evening she again offered an apology for
the slowness of ljorge cars on New York
avenue, but failed to mention that Brook
land and Eckington people are fully as well
accommodated by the Eckington Railway
ae they were before The Times compelled
the company to pull down its poles. But
then no one cares 'for the old lady's pe
culiarities. The entire country except theadministra
tion favors recognizing the Cubans as
belligerents.

There is so much harmony at tho Syra

buildings of Buckingham & Parlsoti, cotton
yarns. 120 Chestnut street, and James E.
Mitchell, woollens, 122, and on tiic left

fiercely, but the active work of the de
partment had prevented its further spread.
Tile Beck building was L-shaped, and
was valued at about $73,000. It con
tained ne-arly $200,000 worth of stock,
consisting of yarns and woollens, all of
which vvjs destroyed. The damage to the
