An OtficesnoKiM Who Once Han
Against Carlisle Disappointed.
Son e of the'proiiiinciit Republicans who
are seeking office have had bitter ex
piueuce with tl e limitations uupdsed on
officesei king bv tlie civil service One
of tinsels George H Thnebe, of kentuckv
Ten vear- ago Mi Thnebe ran for Congress
in the Covington district against John G
Carlisle, then Speaker of the Bouse Thoebe
was indorsed bv the vvoiklnginin of his
district and made a strong nice for elec
tion. being defeated bv onlj a few votes in
a district that had alwavs been deemed
overwhelmingly Democratic He after
v.ard contested Carlisle's seat, but the
House was adverse to his pretensions
On the incoming of the Bairison admin
istration lie was appointed immigration
1 aspect 01 anil filled that place until the
beginning of the second Cleveland admin
The Thoebe contest created considerable
bad fi cling in Kcnttickj . Even the placid
and Just Cai lisle was offended bj some
things said and done during it Within
five minutes after Mr Cailisle was sworn
in as Secietar. of the Tieasuij he said
to the chlcr clerk "Is there a man
named Thoebe who holds some place In
this department'" "Yes," replied the
clerk "Well," Haul Mr. Carlisle, ' I
want him out, and right away, too I
will wait about other things, but not
about that "
So Mr. Thoebe suffered decapitation
for his political views Promptlv aftei
tlie inauguration of McKinlej he returned
to Washington as a cand'date for reap
pointment. He was informed that he
could not get his old place, because it
was under the civil service Then he
applied for furniture examiner in the
Treasuiv. "That, too, Is under tlie civil
service," he was told "But there's no
reading or writing," he said; "all it in
quires is knowledge of furniture " Mr.
Thoebe is an exi erienced wood carver
and cabinet worker, and has been the head
or his trade organization. But he was
told that he could onlv get the place by
competitive examination He was indig
nant, but lie believed what he was told
until he was told the place was prom
ised to a personal friend of Mr. Hanna
from Cleveland. Then lie was madder
But he is still-out and likely to remain I

The piece is from the ten of the v ell known
English plav w right, J rank Harvej.and is
said to be thosuperloi of auv of his other
plajs, and a most realistic example of
modern melodrama
'Though vearsmaj roll around and seas

of patrons of the Grand Opcia House than

Is a first-rate specimen of this class of
play that the management has secured
for next week It is "The Span of Life"
The plaj takes its name from its principal
incident There is a broad chasm over
which it is necessar for one of the prin

of It seems impossible But the span Is

The inaugural music committee played
its finule last evening at headquarters
Judge John C C hane presided, Capt
Kreldler being secrctar The attend
ance was quite large and all or the busi
ness was in such shape that a full report
will be presented xto the executive com
mittee tomorrow night
It was bi ought out in the discussion
that had it not been for the music com
mittee and the concerts it provided there
would have been a deficit, instead or a
surplus in the liiuugurul fund The re
ceipts from the comerts were about $12,
000 It was stated that the tickets or
admission were sold at too lov a rigure,
but as the idea was to let as manv or the
citizens as poMble enjo the various
entertainments of the week, there was io
regret e v pre ssed at the ti emendous crow ds
that attcn led It Is Iikel , howe'.er,
that the tickets next time will be at a
higher rate. It was explained also at
the mieting that the great crii-ii at the
Pension office was cau-ed bj the tickets
not being on sale at a sufficient number ot
places, that tliev were bought lite in the
afternoon and at the ticket offnes at the
building, thus causing a jam
One oT the humors or the expeuences of
the music committee is that it has lost
about fortv chairs, and it is puzzling the
members to know how anv people, no
matter how eleven, could have succcs
fully concealed fortv chairs about their
persons and gotten them off, possibl as
souvenirs of the choius

chorus was composed of singers each one
of whom was a falrl good soloist and
. cr many of them artists or great merit
The appropriation ror the chorus was $500
and the expenses were les than that
The committee was engaged largely in
imtters of finance Its work was doae
with about $5,000, and it kept close to Its
means, and as stated, gave entertain

At the conclusion of the meeting Mr.
Perc Foster proposed a vote of thanks,

Chaney, for his courtcsv and capacity,
which contributed so much to the success
of all its unitertakiags The motion was
passed, JuiUe Chanc making a fitting

Naturo's Hues Reproduced by a
Chemical Process.
Em ope's Latent Scientific Sensation.
Father in Portrait or Tumdeupo
Heproductlou Is FuitUful.
Consul General Mason at Frankfort re
ports to the State Department that the
scientific sensation of the moment in Eu
rope is a new and apparently successful
method of reproducing in photography by
chemical means, the colors or nature.
The process, which is a Freacli one, and
a secret one, at present controlled by a
powerful financial organization, depends
on the development of a negative In four
baths, one colorless and the others red,
blue and green, respectively.
The miracle appears in the fact that
the trutment of the negative plate and
positive print by a limpid liquid Imparts
to the latter the oceult instinct of selec
tive absorption; in other words, the powir
to absorb and as-nnilite from solutions
or the primar colors the exact quanMty
and proportion of each tint that is re
quired to produce all the hues and grada
tions or nature After passing through
the solutions, ir a portrait, the flesh
tints become warm and vital, the colors
or the ejes, hair, and every detail of hue
and 'exture in the costume; Jewelry, etc.,

If a landscape, the sk becomes blue
or gray, as in nature; the grass and
all the elaborate gamut of greens, browns
and purple shadows which appear in a
wood or group or trees or diffeient specifs
under btrong sunlight, are brought out
with marvelous fidelity Such a positive
printed ou glass as a transpartnc, hung
in a window and studied from behind with
a strong monocle produced the efrei t of
looking upon the actual landscape
