In n general way the result of yesterday's
elections Indicates that the Republicans
not only have held their own, but In several
Instances have made Important gains.
The only notable exception to this Is
New York city, where Tammany lias re
gained its control. Its victory is In the
nature of a protest by the voters of the
great city against excesses, even In reform
The other and even greater and more sur
prising revolution was the Democratic rout
In Maryland, with Its smashing of the
Gorman ring. It is the most crushing de
feat ever sustained by this calculating
politician, and will go far to end hl8
supremacy In the party, both in his State
and in the general councils. It probably
does not indicate that Maryland has be
come a genuinely Republican State, but
rather that a large contingent of Demo
crats have become disgusted with ring
Perhaps no other event could convey so
vivid an Impression of the critical condi
tion of affairs In Turkey as the sadden
derarturc of the Turkish ambassador from
Berlin, because he failed to obtain from
Trince Hohcnlohe the desired assurance
of an effort to lessen Great Britain's pressure
upon the Porte in respect to the sltuution
of the Armenians. Tewfik Pasha left, say
ing he would not return for a long time.
lie had represented to the chancellor the
Imminent danger of a duincstle revolution
la the event tils requests were not acceded
to, and having met with no encouragement
ho hastened to Constantinople to take
counsel with his imperial master.
It Is altogether probable that Tewfik
Pasha's apprehensions are not exagger
ated. Religious and political fanaticism
among the Moslems the world over has
been extremely acute for some time, and
It Is accentuated in Turkey, and especially
In Constantinople by the Armenian question.
TheMussulman hates the native Christian as
heartily as his satanic majesty is currently

uii by tho priesthood, against the reigulug
monarch who has none too strong a hold
npon his people's regard as It stands.
What with Internal dissensions and ex

Thcstrcet railway mall service has passed
the experimental stage, according to Second
Assistant Postmaster General Ncilson, who
states in his report that It hat proved Its
usefulness and economy and ought to bo
extended and perfected as rapidly as pos
sible. He recommends an appropriation of
$200,000 for the service, authority for
tho Postmaster General to adjust the com
pensation ot the lines, the construction of
street railway mail cars, and a plan for
operating them.
If the innovation has been attended -with
uch excellent result in other large cities,
there Is no reason why it would not work
equally as well in Washington, whoserapidly
Increasing and expanding suburbs demand
something more expeditious and frequent
than that which can be supplied in wagons
or on bicycles. There Is all the more reason
for Introducing It here because of the large
area tributary to the main poslotf Ice, and
the ground to bo covered In getting the mall
matter to its proper destination.
Amplication has already been made by
the residents ot Mount Pleasant for the In
auguration of the strcei railway mail
service, and It Is understood that Post
master Wlllett Is In favor ot granting Uie
request. There should be no need, how
ever, for special application by tho resi
dents of any particular locality. Just as
the Postoffice Department Is kept advised
by postmasters and other officials ot the
needs of the service and when and where
It ought to be expanded, so In the cities
the postmasters should be the Judges of
the advisability of Introducing a street
railway distribution. The Inauguration of
the system -should depend solely upon the
necessities of tho case, and of these the
postmaster can Inform himself without nny
solicitation or petition from the residents
of any particular section.
Mount Pleasant, Brookland, Takoma
Park, Tcnleytown and olhcr Washington
suburbs nre proper candidates for this
street railway mall service, and can get It
none too soon.
The solicitude or the Civil Service Com
mission to still further expand the classi
fied service has struck a responsive chord
in' the breast ot Secretary Hoke Smith,
who la most anxious to. apply Its rule to
the General Land Office and the Bureau
of Indian Affairs. In fact, the disposition
not only in the Department ot the Interior,
but In the other executive departments,
seems to be In favor of the widest possi
ble scoiu for the classification, so that
finally nearly all appointments may be
determined under and by its provisions
and limitations.
Few reforms have been Instituted the
Inauguration or which met with such vio
lent opposition as did the reform or the
civil service. It was to be expected that
the politicians would object to It, for If
11 attained full control their trude and
irarric in ofTices would be a thing ot the
past, and ante-election promises of this
postmoslcrship or that clerkship would
be at a very large discount. But even
those to whoso benefit lis operation would
finally work opposed it and denounced
11 as unrepubllcan and tending to create
a bureaucratic form or government.
Now all is changed. People have come
to realize that what goes by the name of
civil service reform Is really the fairest
and most democratic of all methods of
appointment to ofrice, for It gives a fair
field and no favor. A man's intelligence
is his best and most powerful influence
In securing an appointment, and his tenure
ot office Is dependent upon no man's
fuvor, bu4 upon his own Integrity, dili
gence aiHl good conduct generally. Under
monarchical governments the man having
the biggest "pull" stands the best showing
for an appointment, but under a repub
lican form or government such favoritism
is an anomaly.

entrance to Hcucnley Burt this evening
marks the completion of the first stage oca
work sot in active operation five years
Aluch remains to be accomplished before

period of management and development

that are to be brought together wltliui the
walls of these buildings and made th- prop
erty of the people.
The doors ot the north entrance to the
building were opened to the public Tor the
first time at 7 o'clock this evening. The
audience was representative ot every walk
ol life and limited only by the capacity of
the hall. Shortly liefore 8 o'clock, the
specially invited gueits tvho accompanied
Mr. Carnegie from New York, together
with his business associates and other per

on either side of the stage, and the scats
Tescrved for them.

Colossal Stupidity.
An amazing story of continued stupidity,
resulting in a man's dea tn, comes from Eng
land. In the storm In the Bristol Channel
at the beginning of October, a coasting ves
sel went ashore at 1 o'clock In the morning
on the rocks, a mile and a half from Ilfra
corubc. Only oncmnn, thecaptain, reached
shore. Two men gathering sea weed at 9 :30
saw him on a rock, where he was Jammed,
and drew him above high watermark under
the clofr. He told them his name and how
his ship was lost; they filled a pipe with to
bacco, which he-smoked, and went to the
town for help. By noon the police, with a
doctor and a cab, went to his assistance;
they had neither dry clothes nor food for
him, but tookorrhls wet clothes, leaving him
naked with a fresh gale blowing and fre
quent gusts of hall and rain. Later a man
went down the cliff, took off his own coat
and trousersandput them onhlm. Hecould
easily have been drawn up to the top of the
cliff with a rope. The Ilfracombe life
boat was launched, but stayed in tho liarlmr
oil day. At 5 In the afternoon it set out
in tow of a tug; a couple of men pulled
ashore In the tug's punt and wished to put
him nboard and warm him In the engine
be carried In their boat. He was finally
brought Into Rfrncombe, taken Into a warm
room In a hotel, and within five minutes
was pronounced dead by three doctors.
The corpse was taken out In a violent rain
storm to the dead bouse, a cold corrugated
iron hut: there it began to sigh and move Its
legs. The doctora then in the cold room
tried to bring it back to life, but by that
time It was too late. He left a widow and
ten children.

Stranco Stories, But the Strangest
of All the Pathetic One of Queen
Victoria's! Mother-ln-Law.
Although 'divorce Is Just as much a
recognized lygni. institution as marriage
in all countries of Europe save Italy, yet
divorced women, even when the decree
nas been granted lu their favor, are piti
lessly excluded from every royal and im
perial court of the old world.
I know of only three exceptions to this
rule namely, that of the Marchioness or
lllandfonl. In Euglaud; the Countess Tas
sllo Festetlcs, In Austria, and the lovely
Uuchcss Rlgnano, at Rome. And of these
three only the Marchioness of lllandfonl Is,
strictly spcakiug, a divorcee, her mar
riage to the late Duke of Marlborough
having been dissolved In consequence ot
his flagrant immoralities and well-nigh In
credible cruelties.
Of the other two, the Countess Festetlcs,
sister or the Duke of Hamilton, had her
first union with the uow reigning Brince
of Monaco annulled by the Vatican on the
ground that she bad been wedded under
compulsion, while the Uuchess Ulgnano.
sister of Trince Doria. and favorite lady
In waiting of Queen. Marguerite, Is merely
Judicially scparated'lrom her Ignoble hus
band, who has been cast off even by his
own relatives.
One can understand the objection man
ifested at court to divorcees who have
been stigmatized by the Judges as the
culpable party and who have had the decree
pronounced In favor of their husbands, but
It is decidedly unreasonable to bar out
ladies such as for Instance the unfortunute
Lndyf Conneinara.'whose conduct was Ju
dicially declared as absolutely aliove re
proach, and who only applied for a di
vorce when no other coune was left open
to her.
This attitude on the part of royalty
seems all the more illogical when it Is
borne la mind that there Is not a single
reigning house In Europe which has not
Itself, within the memory of the preent
generation, been forced to nir in public
marital misfortunes of its own, therrotrat
nnt families securing divorces, while those
professing the Catholic and Greek ortho
dox rnlth contenting themselves as a rule
with Judicial separations.
Thus Queen Victoria, who Is the most un
compromising of all monarchs in modem
times In her Intolerance toward divorcees.
Is herself the daughter-in-law of a princess
who was divorced by her husband under
singularly sensational circumstances.
The mother of the prince consort was a
lovely woman It was from her that he in
herited his good looks and was the last
descendant of the Dukes of Gotha, whose
dominions may be said to have constituted
her marriage portion, slues- they were In
corporated with. those or Saxe-Coburg at
the time or her union to the duke or that
petty sovereignty.
A drunkard and a profligate of the
coarsest character, the duke treated his
young and b.caijtlrul wile with difprucc
ful brutality; to much so, inc'ted, that the
Impcrinl Diet felt constrained to Interfere
In her behalf, while Ihe pood people of
Coburg showed their sjinpathy with their
blond and bluc-cycd duchess by smashing
every window of her husband's palace
nnd by almost lynching his Polish favorite.
Count Schimbovfskl.
At length the duchess could no longer
bear her treatment and eloped frcra Ccburg
with a young cavalry lieutenant named
Baron von naucteiu. The duke at ence
sued for a divorce, which was granted,
and the young mother was never permitted
to see her children again until Just before
the Prince Confort's marriage, they being
brought up', altogether by their grand
mother. - '"
Soon arter recovering from her liberty
the duchess married the companion of
her flight and spent the rest of her days
partly in B-n Itzerland and partly In Paris,
where she died. She bequeathed to her
husband, for whom she had previously
obtained the title or Count of Poeliig. u
considerable yearly income from the rev
enues ot the Duchy of Gotha, on the one
condition that he v. ould never part with
tier corpse, not even for a single night,
nnd stipulated that If I.e spent f enty-iour
under any roof than that where her em
balmed remains happened to be the pen
sion should crae at once.
Ko tho unfortunate count carried the
mummy of Queen Victoria's mother-in-law
around with himfor many years, long after
his marriage toauother lady.unlllonemorn
log at Tarts he was horrified by the dis
covery that the casket had disappeared.
After much Investigation he found that it
had been stolen by emissaries from the
court ot Saxe-Coburg -Gotha, with a view of
having it decently laid to rest, and as the
peusion was continued he had uo reason
whatsoever to regret the thef t-
Another royal divorcee, and one with
whom the writer was personally acquainted,
was the charming old Duchess Wllhclmine
ot Schteswlg-Holsteln, grand-aunt of the
present Empress of Germany and divorced
wife or King Frederick VII or Denmark.
The duchess, who subsequently married
the younger brother of the present King,
had no alternative left to her than to de
mand and obtain a dissolution of her union
with Frederick, for her place in hlsafrec
llons and at the head or her household had
been usurped by her French modiste, who
was subsequently Invested by the late King
with the title or Countess Danner. Many
years later he yielded to her Importunities
and legalized his relations with her, after
a fashion, by a morganatic marriage.
Notwithstanding her antecedents, she
was treated with the utmoit consideration
by the present King and Queen of Den
mark when they were eking out a scanty
subslstencc In Copenhagen previous to
their succession to the throne, and it was
from her that the Princess of Wales, the
present Czarina of Russia, and the Duchess
of Cumberland acquired not only their un
rivalled taste tor dress, but also the knowl
edge which they possess of how to make
dresses and hats.
The reigning house of Prussia has no
less than three divorces to Its credit. Prin
cess Marianne, the mother of Prince Al
bert, now Regent ot the Duchy of Bruns
wick, was divorced from her husband, and
It was hard to. say on which side the fault
lay, the tribunal' observing a discreet si
lence upon the subject, for if Prince Al
bert, the elder.' was drunken nnd dissi
pated as his brother Charles, tils conduct
presenting a' striking contrast to that of
his elder two Ifrothcrs, King Frederick
William IV, and.the late Emperor WirJuia,
yet it must bo confessed that the Frincess
Marianne njas eccentric almost to the
verge of insanity,, which was not altogether
astonishing tv.heri It Is borne in mind that
she was n sjster of the late King of the
Netherlands, nnd.that her mother was the
crazy daughter ot the madman. Czar Paul
ot Russia.
Princess Marianne died only a few years
ago at the Hague, bequeathing her vast
fortune to her f cri. Her husband mean wldle

mount photographs, which proves so sat
isfactory If carefully undertaken, with due
amount of time and patience thrown in,
that It seems worth while to suggest It.
Cut some moderately stout cardboard
in the sizes you require, place your pjf
ture on the card where you wish It to
be when mounted, and put a pencil dot
where each corner comes. A large table
and plenty of ncwipaiers are needed nnd
a pot ot gelatine. This Is much better
than mucilage or paste. It should be
melted and the pot. In which It stands,
placed In another one of hot wnter, which
should be renewed from time to time.
A small sponge tied to the ecd of a
stick. Is. used U apply the gelatine. One
advantage of gelatine Is that If an al
bum becomes worn out, the photographs
can cosily b removed by soaking the
pages In hot wnter; it also does not leave
dirty stains if a little gets over the edges
of the pictures.
A second basin of hot water is also re
quired with a small sponge floating In It.
Now take the first photograph, and
spread It as well as you can, face upwards,
on your newspaper. Damp the face thor
oughly with hot water, rubbing It gently
with the sponge. The photograph will
soon He flat Instead ot rolled up; then
turn It over, back upwards, and apply
the gelatine with a sponge brush, taking
care that the whole is covered. The
picture must now be taken and placed
boldly In position in the album, the pen
cil marks made before being used as guides.
In order that the mounting may be done
in first-rate style, this placing In position
should lie done at one motion and the
photograph should not bo moved atterward.
To fix the photograph in its place, dab It
with a soft towel or large cloth, beginning
at tho .cntcr and working outward. Do
not rub it with a cloth. The dampening ot
the photograph frith water and gelatine
will bo found to have expanded It sorne
ivhat. so that the pencil marks made before
must be used as guides to Its position rather
than as indications of the exact positions
of the turners. Unless the gelatine is quite
hot. It tvlll lie lumpy.
However well the photograph Is mounted,
it Is almost certain at first to be covered
with small blisters, and you will think
that It is spoiled. In the process ot drying,
hotvever, all these disappear, and the sur
race Iwcomcs perfectly smooth and even and
you begin to wonder why you have never
tried your hand before at this work. In
deed, such a pleasing and satisfactory em
ployment is It, that you wonder why you
ever do anything else but mount photo-

which will stop running slowly and begin

A Tennessee Seiintor'N Aclventttro la
u AIoouhIi Iiil District.
An unusual story oroutlawryci.mcs rrom
the Red Sulphur Springs district or Har
din county, says a Xa&lirilte dispatch to
the Courier-Journal. This is a notorious
resort ror moonshiners, and they have made
a creek there the dead line for revenue of
ficers. Some two vrccks ago a raiding
party slipped Into the district a nd destroyed
u still, capturing three men. Including one
named Davis, wanted at Memphis for
murdering a deputy marshal ui.d wound
ing United States Marshal llrown.
A Tew days ago State Senator Sims or
Lawrence county, und a man named J. II.
Parker went to Hardin county on legal
business. They unwillingly entered tho
licit Sulphur district, aud were near where
the still was destroyed, when they were
suddenly confronted by six men, armed
Willi guns, who, taking them prisoners,
marched Ihem to a cacehrakc, where they
began preparations to hang them.
Senator Sims pleaded with them that
they were not revenue officers. The men
finally consented to delay the execution a
few hoars to give Sims an opportunity to
establish his Identity. -He gave one or the
men $10 lu ride to town and bring a mer
chant whom he knew. After five hours the
man came and identified Sims.
The outlaws then took the two men to
the Tennessee River, nnd, placing them on
a barge, -started them across It, telling
them that iriheycvcrcamcbackthey would
hang them without any questions, and any
revenue men invading the district would
meet the same late.
