He has always feared failure, owing to the puroly local character he por trays, lie did not think their humor and pathos would be appreciated out of London. He tried them in Scotland and found them very successful. He hus had many offers to star on the continent, but hnsalwajs re fused them, being confident that the for eigners would noL understand him. His tremendous New York success came to him somewhat in the nature of a surprise The first time Chevalier sang a coster song in public was at the harmony club, in the rear room of an East End pubho house. He dropped in by chance, and the chairman asked him to sing. He mado a hit, and the crowd thai sat around drink ing out ot pewter pots and smoking long clay pipes applauded him to the echo. At that time he was on the legitimate stage. 'He loon drifted into singing at clubs and private entertainments'. At one of these the manager of the Tivoli heard Mm and engaged him for that placo.

Necessity of Personal Integrity to Successfully Direct Character. 2bnie Magazine. There Is no nation In whom runs so much mixed blood as in the American. The English, or Saxon, is the stronger and larger, but where that is found, even In small measure, it has been proved the world over to take the lead. Our American finds mingled with his Saxon blood that of many nationalities, andthesestra.nstell, Fothatif helsthought ful heal'ofmdssomcwhutof a complication. There may be few strains, there maj be many, but the influence is more or less positive. Let any mother trace back for ten, or even five, generations on her own or her husband's side, and she will see what Is the inheritance of her child. A bioad-minded, common-sense mother or disciplined imagination is needed in order to harmonize the a arj ing character istics and qualities, or to legulate them, so that the composite production shall bo the best There Is danger of knowing and thinking too little of these things; there is danger of knowing and thinking too much, unless krowlt dgeand intelligence increases. One cannot be steady and positive in teach ing and training, if or.e is in personal doubt or mist. It Is a great help and comfort in recog nizing the difficulties In the case to know and be persuaded that the child is God's child. The heavenly inheritance, in the earthly 6ense, is far greater "than the measure of man's mind," and whatever national peculiarities or traits may be manifst because of the earthly generation, the other lnheiltance. If recognized. Is of tremendous importance in equalizing, har monizing and developing, in restraining and overcoming. It is the mother's ally, foe it is the divine nature within, and If nurtured lifts the human self upward. Whnt They Cost. "I don't behee people realize whatthsee pointed shoes are costing the human race," said the man who doei not believe in any thing that is fashionable. "Oh, yes, they do." "What?" "From S3 to $1G a pair." If the man who had been moralizing had done what he felt like doing there would have been an immediate sacrifice of human life. Chicago Evening Post.

Major Powell said that the advertising had been done before, tiut It was not pos sible under the old law for the past three jeara as during that time the Com missioners were doing the lighting by con tract. "The wording of the appropria tion act is different, however, this jtar from heretofore. Although previous to- this time the law did permit an inter pretation which seemed, to indicate that any further extensions should be by exist ing conduits, the present law docs not permit of such interpretation. Otherwise we must necessarily hav gone back to the general law. We accepted the bid of the Potomac company only In part because we preferred that the United States company, having the conduits, should do the lighting along those lines." Senator McMillan: "You gave them permission to construct conduits where the other company had none?" Alajor Powell: "Yes." Senator Harris: "Does not the United Suites company parallel the lines of the Potomac company in Georgetown?" Col. Britton: "You do not mean to say, Major Powell, that jou are not parallel ing the lines of the United States com pany?" Maj. Powell: "I say that it was Im possible for the Potomac company to ex tend its lines without paralleling existing conduits that is for very short distances, but the route was selected after very care ful consideration, in order to prevent the occupation of the same streets by the two cojn panics." Senator Mciiillan: "What would be the effect if this joiat resolution were passed?" This question gave rise to a long dis cussion Major Towellsaid that the effect would be to greatly embarrass the situa tion. Congress had it under considera tion for a long time and had made no progres-s and it wouldmean the expenditure ot a large amount of money. As for present conditions he argued against the monopoly ot the United States company, "which is without regulation or restriction as to rates." Alay Have No Light. Commissioner Truesdcll was heard next as to the effect of the passage of the sub way bill. He referred to the result of the well-known North Capitol street cases and said that if the Commissioners were "di rected to ignore the contract with the Po tomac company, under a law which had bpen adjudicated, the company would still have a good claim against the District. It might go into the court and prevent us from making a contract with any com pany, and the result would be we would have no lights at all." Mr. Crosaby next addressed tlie com mittee. He spoke largely on the rights and status of tlie two compann-s in the District and particularly to the evils of the monop oly wliich would result If the Potomac company or any other were not permitted to come in and compete, as lus company had done. After he had proceeded at some length Senator McMillan said that these points had no bearing on the question before the committee. "There are other questions to be considered. We have already passed over two resolutions and the Joint reso lution is simply that it shall be unlawful from the time it becomes law to enter any street except for the extension of existing 1'ghting service. "The point I raised is in what condition would the passage of this joint resolution leave the District or Columbia, and the answer was given by Air. Truesdell that it might lead the District into great trouble: they might not get the light they wanted and might be required to pay for two companies. It seems to me that the points you are now covering and entering into pretty thoroughly as to the condition of the two companies we understand very fully. We took tlicm up at the time we had your bill before us." In answer to questions Air Crosby said tint the Potomac compiny hnd completed yesterdaj morning aliout one mile of con duits east of Rock Creek and didn't know exactly what progress had been made at Ninth street. He explained the material ot construction and said that they could carry other wires than the electric light ing wires. In some conduits they had as many as sixteen ducts. Depths of Conduits. He alto stated the depths of the conduits to vary, someof them bemgfotif and a half to five feet and others less, according to obstructions. Six miles more remain to be completed. The cost of the present conduits was about $S,0Q0 to $10,000 per mile, altl ough the cost of the two miles in G orgetown was about $12,00(1 a mile. Col. Britton occupied nearly all or the remaining time of the committee. He would like to ditcuss the Galhnger and Cockrell resolutions because they were without ambiguity and do not warrant an ot the inferences of trouble to the District antici pated by Commlsfcioner Truesdell. As a matter ot fact the Commissioners them seles had urged on Congress the passage or the subway bill. Beginning In 1S0P Congress had never lost sight of it and never appropiiated a Collar without restrictions 111 view i f the ultimate passage of that subway act He went on to show the importance and ab olute necessity of .such a system consider ing the sue and growing necessities of the city as to future telegraph, telephone, ana electric railway facilities.

Va., John E P Behn-us and Ellen Josephine Forrester. It true that the policy of Congress was toward monopoly in the city government and had been for a hundred jears. This wras proved by its policy toward under ground railways. It undertakes to regu late: one comiwny rather than to permit a number of contestants or "collusive competitors for a sellout or a freeze out " Corporations. Favored. Col. Britton cited several local examples in which Congress preferred one corpora tion to a numter of competitors. Fox fifty years, for instance, there had beea but one gas company. He then adverted totheriseandprogreh3 0tthe CnitedStates company and its great extensions for tbd public and private service. There could b no question that Congress had recog nfted it as the only company up to 1891- ThU being dinted by Mr. Crosby, Col. Ilntton replitd that it was even admitted by Judge Cole. Col. Britton then wens into the history of the formation ot the Potomac Company as a competitor In lS9t-'93, its efforts to get permits and the adverw division or Justice Eingham. Dereatcd there, they went to Congress and in this connection Col. Britton de scribed the erforts there made. led by Mr Birney, "a friend of the Potomac Company," in its behair All or the deices for letting in outside bidders were struck out ot the Pitney amendments by the Senate, and. there was a return to the old system. In the legis lation which was eventually pused there was. no doubt that the Potomac Company was confined west or Rock Crvek. "When," said Col. Britton, the Senate was considering the amendments the best and clearest strternent was made perhaps on June 9 by a Senator, who said 'There has never been a proposition upon the jart or the Potomac Company to invade the territory of the United State Com pany. Senator Harri-. Qnoted. Senator Harris: "From what do yoa readT' Col. Bntton: 'The Congressional Rec ord." Senator Harris: "What Senator?" Col. Britton: "Yon." This created a broad smile all around the roora- "And I will repeat it because it was so clearly stated, as. In fact, everything is usually stated with clearne-v by that Sena tor." Senator Harris. "All Senators stat things clearly." Mr. Crosby intimated that the quotation from Harris was out ot connection, but Col. Britton read the whole extract to show that these statements were mada with a view of getting legislation for tha Totomac Company, and that the restriction as to west of Rock Creek only wa.s in the mind of the Senate when the appropriation bill was agreed to. Mr- Crosby: "The United States Com pany was also limited-" Col. Britton: "Perhaps so. but that fact did not give t hePotomac Company t herighC to invade our territ-nry.' Col. Bntton then specified the lines along which the Potomac Company was parallel ing the lines of the United States Company, approaching them In some places within a few inches. He also called the attention ot the committee to the admissions ot Mr. Crosby that there were provisions in the conduits for more service than was con templated In the mere contract for a few arc lights, and that the system, being put down in the city was different from that in Georgetown- He also described It as a system ot not more than two or three feet below the surface, made up of "little con duits, little beds of mortar," and generally inefficient structures- He hadn't seen a manhole along the route he had observed Hearing; Adjonrned. Replying to Mr. Truesdell. Col. Britton showed that th" Commissioners had acted with due knowledge lit all the risks of the undertaking in giving the permits- They placed themselves in thatposition andnuw declare that to undo it wilt be to the detriment ot the publleserWce- He- said that the s-called decision of. Judge Cole was not on the merits of the controversy, ami that this the Commis sioners knew when they issued the per mits. The Commissioners had an oppor tunity to get a final decision, but they would not cr.-operat wuh the United States Company. It was time t was wanted, and not the law. They Jlssumed that a mere utterance on an Interlocutory order declared a legal principle, and then hastened on to grant the permits with the subway bill peinhnp, nnd the knowl edge that the whole matter would be dis cussed again in the Senate. Yet the lermit.s were granted on December 2, be fore the meeting of Congress. He con cluded by criticising the loose manner In which the permits were drawn, there be mg'no specifications, no definition of the character of construction, no restriction, except as to what the Engineer Commis sioner shall deem best. I never saw such a thing in my lire. It may he a very good thiug for the District, but it struck me as a wild scramble to get into the territory of the opposition." Chairman MeMillanadJournedthe hearing at this point. It will be resumed on notification from the committee. When the Snowr Plies.
