Tlieseveral conferences that have recently
taken place between the District Com
missioners and Use local manager of the
"Western Union Telegraph Company re
garding the stringing of wires and placing
them under ground, respectively again call
attention to the fact that all other cor
porations operating electric wires, such
as telephone and lighting, raise com
paratively little objection to burying them.
This is not only the case here, but in
other cities. There is no good ground, of
course, save the item of expense, why tele
graph wires should not follow suit-
Such a thing as an overhead -wire,
whether telegraph, telephone, lighting or
anything else, is unknown in- any large
Europan city. They are ail underground;
the streets are not disfijrured by unsightly
poles", there is not a great tangle of wires
to interfere with the operations of the fire
department, and there is no danger of a
crossing of heavily charged light -wires
with others and a resultant fire In some
building. This condition is observable
not only in cities like Berlin or Vienna
or Pans, but in towns of five and ten
thousand inhabitants. Poles and over
head wires form so part of the street
Iu the very nature of tilings this over
head network -will constantly grow In
density, and the poles will become more
numerous and heavier as commerce and
coitimuuicallon expand and business be
comes more pressing. All these objections
have beeh so frequently urged that reitera
tion would seem to be useless. There is
this to be said, however. Uiat municipalities
should not themselves be guilty of doing
what they deem reprehensible It done by
corporations. In "Washington, for instance,
the fire alarm nnd police patrol wires
are nearly nil, if not all, overhead. They
ought to be in underground conduits. Bal
timore Is just doing this. After it will
have been done here, the city-may with
justice require all others to follow suit.
A DANGl'ltODS COM'SE.
Iord Salisbury's speech at the Lord
Mayer's banquet cannot be said to have
alleMated the apprehension that a great
crisis is threatening at Constantinople.
The dissolution of the Turkish Empire may
be but the first step in changing the
map of Europe, an event that would be
preceded by a gigantic war. Couching
ills opinions in the most careful language.
Lord Salisbury save utterance to tho
fear tlial only by the utmost restraint on
the part ot each of the powers could a
conflict be prevented.
The habitual shitty policy of the Torte
win do its part in bringing matters to a
focus. The Saltan will try to play one
of the powers against the other, as lie lias
done in the past with some degree of suc
cess, not rully Impressed with the fact
that conditions havo changed and that
he has come to the end ot his rope. He
will not institute the administrative re
forms demanded by the ambassadors
because he cannot. Revolution confronts
him witliiu; dissolution from -without.
Tho report which comes from Berlin
that Austria may be put forward to take
possession of Turkey may be dismissed as
absurd on Its very face, for Rut-la -would
make war against all the rest of Europe
before permitting such a thing. The sick
man ot Europo will soon be the dead man,
but his ghost will disturb the peace of
Europe for many a year.

It must be a comforting ohd consoling

no word of hers has made hearts ache, no
act of hers caused resentment or bitterness.

Bill Nyo Talks in Eeminiscent
Mood of the Sweet Singer.
Some Anecdote of tho Dead Poet
and tho II u in or 1st 'm Etlmuto of
lllm us u Writer.
Edgar W. Nye, better known to famo by
the more familiar and euphonious appt'Ula
lion of "Bill Nye," is In tbe city stoppping
at the Arlington. The death of Eugene
Field "was a shock to the humorist, for
the two men had a friendship of long stand
ing. "My acquaintance with Eugene. Field,"
said he to a Times' reporter, "is of some
eighteen years duration. It liegan when I
first ttnick Denver, Col., which happcued
to be ou the eve ot St. Valentine's Day.
The uext morning I noticed a paragraph
In the paper, wnlch 1 found had emanated
from Eugene Field, who was then writing
for the Tribune. It stated that two dis
tinguished guests -were in town, St. Val
entine and Bill Nye.
"That evening Field arranged a supper
which wasoneof the most pleasant thlngst
remember. Being newspaiwr men, we sat
down to table rather late, about eleven or
twelve o'clock, but wc didn't leave the
board until the guests of the hotel began
coming In for bieakfdst, which was about
eight o'clock. The reaeon we tarried so
long was not because wo were not in a
condition to leave sooner, oh no, but be
cause the flow of humorous uuecdotes uud
remlnleeeiice, did not for one moineiit
abate. Field was the life or the party; his
drolleries, his inexhaustible fund of stories,
his ludicrous mimicry, are bomelhlug I
shall not soon forfiet.

with their heads as clos-e together as they
could get, trying to catch cM-ry word that
fell from his Ills.
"Some eight years after our firet meet
ing. Field, James Whitcomb Riley mid I
were ussoclaled in an entertainment, ut
Indianapolis. Field had come over to help
us as a matter or accommodation, and a
great help he was. The house was packed
and it was Just such an audience as I like
to see; the seal skins and diamonds went up
in the galiiTies. Everything we said went,
and we all three were happy until I sprung
a little Joke on Field.

one night when Uiley and I were going
to give an entertainment in BloomfleW,
Ohio. Fleid came down there and said to
Rilev that he owed nieone and proposed
to settle the debt. After going to every
cigar store In town he liaally serimil some
loaded cigar. He then came up tn my room
where I was dressing, entered the room
smoking nnd ulfered me a cigar.
"I declined. salng that smoke dried

until after the show.
" 'Oh, take one now,' he said, and in

that I wish to give you all these cigars."

"Going back to Tie'd, I remember a
very humorous re-citation lie had called
the 'Waterbary Watch-' The poetry was
all his own and so was Hie watch. The
latter he had made to order, and It was
so constructed that the winding ot it could
beheurd a block away, and when he came
to the refrain ,'Wind. wind, and wind, and

to the great amusement ot t he audience. I

"Well, I wouldn't like to compare them.
They were very different. Both, of course,
are eminent In their way. The difference
lielween them was as great personally as
it was in their writings. Vt-ry few men
have written as characteristically as Field
wrote. His -writings faithfully nnd con
sistently reflect -the humor of the man,
the llght-heartedness of his disposition,
the fresh boyishness that lingered with him
till his death. The influence of his presence
was like a benediction to his friends, nnd

"The power of the gospel and the outlook

mon by Iter. Hugh Johnson, D. D., at the
Metropolitan M. E. Church last evening.
"Tho kingdom ot heaven Is like unto

making It clearer, and upon the heart, mak
ing It purer and nobler.
"The Holy Spirit is the great agent of
conversion. He makes not another man of
the e-onvertcd slnaer, but a new man; He
gives him purer thoughts, higher Joys,
nobler ambitions and loftier hopes. The
character ot man Is his nature, and that
nature is to prefer sin to holiness. When
a man decides upon a slnMl course he feels
that he is acting upon the natural iuipnh.es
of his being; when ho elei-ides tipn good
conduct ho is setting at naught the dictates
of his nature. The power or the Gospel is

"Religion is the renewing of the inner
man," he continued. "It does not eon
slst in attending any particular chiirch or
subscribing to any cni-d or dogma, but
In the ennobling and uplifting of the inner
man. The spiritual life Is analogous to the
natural. As the acorn will transform the
esrth and rain nnd sunshine In'.o oak, so
will the spirit of man, if dominated by the
pervasive influence of Christianity, asrhnll
ate all these heavenly influences. It Is
the only remcilv for all the fcMertug eWls
that afriiet our s.H-i.il life.
"Christianity ir more generally nix-cntetl

would be made more faithful and efflHent
and hence more pruspprors; they would be
