It is not a nice exhibition of journalism,
or wliat Mr. l'allen, of hi. Louis, calls
"newinaperlnin," to choose the time of the
9olemu ceremonies over the reraatui of the
lite Thief Jnslieo Cliasa to glre spioo to the
extraordinary letter from the woman who
stgru herself "Iner Spr.iRue," attaching the
laughter of that honored mau. It la ilouht
fill if such a coniiosUlon was ever seen he
fore in the colnmus of Journals professing to
he resnectahle, for what n. tlioronghl.v spite
ful an 1 unscrupulous woman can eay ahonl
another no philosopher has ever protended to
pet hounds to. Her ingenuity surpasses not
only tint of the other sex; It has something
infernal in It. Whatever faults Katharine
Chase may have committed, it was an outrage
on wonnuhood to publish such an attack on
her private clnracler In her retirement, and
it is a pity the newspaper that began the
work cannot he punished.
The ren ewed friction between the District
Commissioners ami the Secretary of the Treas
ury is unfortunate and apparently unneces
sary. This journal is predisposed to take a
friendly view of the acts of tho present
Hoard, hnt the position they have taken In
regard to tho estimates appears to be more
thin impolitic. They should have frankly
furnished the fullest information In their
power. In the matter of street improve
ments it is the right both of the citliensof
the Dlstrictaud of Congress to have exact In
formation as to the street areas which it is
proposed to pave. Much dissatisfaction his
been caused hitherto at the manner in
which the money was apportioned, the
lion's share always going to favored locali
ties. There is no good reason why the
Commissioners should not submit a sched
ule of the streets they propose to improve,
an 1 Cougress will be pretty apt to require
such details before it votes the'mouey.
The project of making President Dlai
avowedly as well a vlrlnally Dictator of
Moxlcojandeveninaking tho office hereditary,
may very easily bo a sign of the approaching
oud of thefarca of republican government In
that country. The rule of effete and cruel
Spain was a poor tutelage in her colonics for
tho blessings of free loin, and revolt seems to
havomrely exchange I foreign despotism
for oven less ctvlltied and mora crushing
native despotism In many of the unhappy
conntrles south of us. Tho absolutism of
I.opei,lUrrlos, and other potentates, under
forms of lawful government, recallvl the
Kings of Dahomey. There is one point that
Is not clearly understood by all North Ameri
can rollers, and thai is tho extent to
which the possession of power enriches the
Spanish-American ruler and his friends. It
will be found that In tho smallest and most
poverty-stricken "republics" the "l'resl
"dent" and his "Ministers," oven after a
short term, aro wealthy men oven according
to the modern standards, and the ratio
rapidly Increased with the size of tho domain
to bo plundered and length of time allowed.
The. widow of Ibrrios is living in the
United Stiles on the income of a largo for
tune. Kx-1'resldeiil (lomiles, of Mexico,
whoso assassination was rumored lately,
went out of office with suoh a "pile" that
even his supporters, tho friends of Dlai,
were stiOckol or grumbled at his greediness.
If Diaz Is not rich, it Is because he seems to
prefer power to the hoarding of wealth.
This is a very sordid and sorry view of
the aspirations of Spautsh-American leaders,
but there Is teo much reason to believe It
tho.lrue one. It is poor satisfaction to have
caused the sacrifice of tho wretched Maxi
milian, (which llidcau, by the way, argues
strongly was directly due to the bitter re
sentments of General (Irani,) only to see him
probably succeeded by a hereditary "dicta
"tor" iu Mexico.

'1 lie iliscusston of the proposed stretching
out of Massachusetts avenue into the open
fields may serve to settle the jnestlou of
what kind of development this city most
needs at presnt. There are many who
think that solidification iu tho centre is
more desirable thau the rush for speculation
iu suburban land. Both processes may go
on together, hut not by throwing all or too
much energy into the suburban idea.
Washington will be a grander city when the
mauy vacant or worse thau vacant lots now
to he been on all sides are covered with
buildings worthy of their surroundings,
and when the streets iu front of them are
placed and kept In good condition. So long
as Investors think more money is to be made
out toward Tenleytown they will confine
their outlay to that direction, especially
when they are favored by Buch encourage
ment as the Massachusetts avenue scheme.
Handsome Euburbs are an agreeable inci
dent to a city's growth, but they ought to
be the frame to a handsome picture, the sur
roundings of a solid nucleus of built-up and
well paved streets.
The extreme shortness of what is too
truthfully known as the "short session" of
Congress is already bewailed in advance,
from the prospect of hasty legislation and
the neglect of many useful and important
measures. Nowhere is this more acutely
felt than 111 the District of Columbia. As It
seems impossible to get Congress to meet
earlier, every citizen should show an Inter
est iu the proposed amendment to the Con
stitution prolonging the session to April 30.
This amendment of oonrse refers to Inaugu

It Is now but two days to election, an 1 the voters
should not forget that not only did the President
keep his wife home from ltlchinond as an express

It is announced as a curious Item from abroad

also lor the payment or a reward of four marks to
every policeman who brings a case of cruelty to
animals beforo tho courts It Is a coincidence that
a similar case la now pen ling In this District. The
late Major Fuller, son of Mr. T. .1. 1). 1 uller.tholaw.
yer, left a will bequeathing his estate to the Society
lorthePreicntlonof Cruelty to Animals, with on
incidental legacy to the person who should present
the document for probate. This Is now contested
on behalf of his infant half brother, on tho ground
that the testator's dislike for tho rest of tho tinman
race v, as so morbid as to amount to a mania.

would be greater. An even later date
would he desirable, but as as this has his
torical association with the inauguration ot
the first l'resldent to strengthen Its chances,
it is doubtless better to make the light upon
it. Surely there should be no objection in
Cougress to submitting it to a vote of the
States. Just at this time it seems that no
strong partlsau feeling would be involved.
Thu Critic thinks that the conflict of opin
ions and of rival interests over the Massa
chusetts avenue extension project, and the
similar conflict last w iuter over the selection
of tho site for the new city post offioe, show times, but It Is never well to mako them silly. How.
the need of a Citizens' Association. The ever, wc think Miss Hamilton draws too serious an
grave reflections on the ull.lty of modern young
ladles. In her article on "ihodlrl of tho Period,"
In last bun lay's Ifoi la, sho expresses tho opinion
that "between the strict domestic clucallonot our
"gran (mothers and the high collcglalo education nf
"our own days the unhappy girl ot our period main
"deed come to tuegroun 1 " T his Is ba 1 new s,tf news
It be. The assumption seems to be founded on the
letters of ono or the "high collegiate" type, which
aro quoted mid commented upon at length. 'I lie
letters must bo genuine; they have a familiar Hound.
Hut It docs not always follow that because a young
lady does not wrlto logical or coherent letters to her
friends sho Is also Incapacitated for the Important
duties of a housewife. Miss (Jail Hamilton has a
pungent pen, and tho contrast between her clear
cut sentences and the careless How of words of her
nnguarded correspondent Is very marked. Ono can
not help wishing that the myriads of young damsels
who arc growing us to write Just such letters as
those quoted, which sound well enough In the
privacy of the family circle, would notice this con
trast. It Is well to be chatty, but It Is not well to lie
trining. It Is well to make ono a letters personal at
Critic has given many reasons iu favor of the
organization of such an association; but this
time it reveals the real dilllculty, which Is
in the danger that any Citizens' Association
might fall into the hands of men with axes
to grind. Tub Sobat IIiuulu has already
approved, in general terms, of the plan of
having a voluntary organization of citizens
to advocate the interests of the community.
This is peculiarly desirable on account of
the disfranchised condition of the people of
the District. Hut there Is too much reason
to fear that any body of the kind would fall
into the bauds of men having special inter
ests to serve. What the Critic should do Is
to explain Iu detail the methods by which It
would have Its Citizens' Association created.
Then jierhaps wo may be able to judge
whether it is possible to organize a body of
citizens which shall be truly representative
of the immunity at large, and which could ftSJftJ

It Is a deplorable fad that when those

one adviser on whom Mrs Stewart relied after the
death of her hustnud nn V her brother, Charles 1.
Clinch. It has long been known that Mr. Stewart's

was led to bellevo otherwise. Iho one person, ot
the several robbers who pcrpetntcil the outrage, to
whom the pine ot the secretion nf Iho body was

Icl mo tell yon ono thing aliout llbetly,

sr-ithello craze, when clinging, ntcdtinvnl garments
were In vogue) but we havo now coiuo Into an era
of bustles, and she really won t do."
The sculptor was visibly amazed. I prcsnineth it
uncritical adulation had ma lo him self satisfied an t
vain, nnd so con lemnatlon shocked him.
"What would you hate 1110 dot" ho nt length
faltered. "Surely, I Iberly's garb Is classh al; and
can yon expect her to 1 hango her bronzo costume
as though It were fabric with crcry alteration of
fashlon7"
"lixaclly H11I," I answered. "Therein you would
show Irno genius. You ought to hnvo conltlvcd
some means of changing Iho dress of Liberty four
times a year, thus making her ever a timely exhibit
ofnlmlred and admlrablo womanhood, lust see
how dowdy nn 1 back-numbered, not to say ihest

Iho Frctichmm appeared to think t was Jiklng,

Otconrse,nnlinp(irsonatorof any particular thine
ought to bo costumed to suit tho character, but 1
hold that, as liberty keeps right up with the limes
ltiNowork, her statuesque exponent absolutely
requires lnodlshncsalo mako her respected. In the
way ol perfect suitability In garb Helen forlcsi uc Is
an Illustration. Shelsnslslcrnf tho actress whom
lord Oarmoylc wished to marry, then wotildn t, nn I
finally had to pay $ae),oon to her for changing his
mind. Helen Is hero In tho samo company, anther
rolo Is that or a 110 ir peasant girt who returns to her
home n sort nf prodigal daughter, rigged nnd bare-
fooled. Mention Is made ot tho bare feet, nnd, as
tho play Is In blank aersc, perhaps nobody nround
the concern had skill enough to niter Itn text with,
out spoiling the meter. Anyhow, Helen appears In
five toed stockings, and their Into Is flesh-color
which Is not to say lllo bright pink ot tho ballet, hut
a realistic skin tint, that makes f ilksdrop thelropera
glasses from her head to her feet to discern whether
or not the girl's feet an I ankles arc covered. As tho
nails aro ilcflly outlined, It Is hard to decide, nnd
opinion Is usually divided on Ihc sex line. 1 ho men
are gallantly ready to believe inat 'ho apparent
pedal pcrfo lion Is genuine, but tho un mpisslnncd
women will not concede so much; ni' If Helen
would only paint a corn or two on Iter toes alio
would command unprecedented surccss.
One ot the dozen actresses who havo played In

anlcostot her costumes, decides during the llrst
portion of "Camllle" whit sho shall weir In the

fresh from Paris to a worked-our gown from sea

depcu Is nn Ihc size mid demeanor of the audience.
Only n full auditorium and plenty of inltiuslasm
command the very best dress, with the luslro and
frou frou of newness undiminished; au assemblage
a little detlclent In numbers or appreciation sees the
second best robe, nnd so ou down to the frayed one
for a old, small house. Sometimes, lion ever, a
half audience In slzo Is so cxpan llngly fullot delight
that the actress rewards It with hcrllncst dress, and,
on the other hand, a iiilsbchav lug crowd Is putilsticd
with the worse for-wiar costume.
Society Is awfn ly distracted about actresses any
how. Hunt Club balls nru Ihc diversion uf the prcs

What I wish only to tell Is that a move

and thero Is a commotion altogether. Thusrar Iho
Couvcutionals have held their own against the In

An Instance nf this Is tho abolition of tho nurse

themselves on tho taking ot healthy exercise, and

Tho long folds of crepe 011 the black dress, nnd
the double veil falling almost to her fcit, told n

also dressed In unrelieved black with huge bows uf

wltti a dazzling diamond brooch, and the child's

Hut whllo Iho great French dramatist treated the

upon elTei tsot contrast, which, In striving tnrciuler

this, whllo amusing no doubt, serves to cast a sus

THE BEST IS THE CHEAPEST.
It isnown number of years since tho management
uf the Madlsou Square lhcatre sent the pliyand
company with which Iliey propisc 1 tu iipcn their
beautiful llltlo play house lo Washington for a sort
uf 0 preliminary spill over Iho course. Wo were
accustomed to hiving the District use I as a propa
gating garden for all kin Is of new experiments In
politics and government, emancipation, unlversil

title rolo wis sustained by Eiflo lls'er.nnd thoso

seemingly heart-felt totics of I01 c and pathos swayed
tho emotions ot her audlcnco nt will, and mado of
the week's cngigeuicnta moist nud tearful eront
that required tho carpets and cushions to lie hung

turned to us after a long nnd rcgrclablo nbsenco,
and, despllo a certain somUlellaut h irdncss of re
gard and delivery at Utiles, must slill bo recog.
cognized as nn imotlunal actress of greit
magnetism and sympathy. "Wutuan for wumin,"
however, Is scarcely a play Iu which her power can
bo appreciated to tho bust alvantage. As so often
Iho case with productions of lla class, Iho self sac
rltlco whl ch makes Its action possible Is felt at once
to be not merely foolish but wicked. Ami, In gen
eral, It should bo said Hint Iho drama of liumbio life,
which involves Its talo of drunkenness nud sordid
misery ami crime, should lie Informed throughout
with somo puro and lufty principle or motive, somo
saving strain of poctlo feeling to render Its dreary
mid dispiriting details cndurublo. Miss Kllsler g ivo
n very moving pkluroof the suffering heroine, and
was ably socuii led In her effurts by Mr. Frank Wes
ton as tho workman husband, whoso happy homo
has bicn Invaded and laid waste by tho demon of
distrust. Miss Karle deserves credit for a rather
painfully realistic Interpretation of tile ungrateful

NICHOLAS KANE DEFENDED.
A SflMlsils Jtin Who trill Cams to Comress
Tho special (Alhiny, N. .) correspondent of tho
Washington Slur, In a despatch lo that paper, pub
lished on Iho Mth Instant., Indulges In n few per
Banal reimtks In reference tn somo of tho candi
dates for Congress In Iho Slate ot New York.
Among those assailed ho mentions tho Hon. Nicho
las Kane, tho regular Dcnncmlio can lldalo In the
Nineteenth District. In Iho words nf tho scribe,
that gentleman Is "a man of no education, and of no
political experience, save two terms ns town super
vluor, and," ho aids, "the nomination Is as absurd
as tho two nominations In tho ICImlr 1 District," con
cluding with tho Innuendo that "Mr. Kano Is willing
to spend 20,ooo " This correspondent has evidently
gnno out of his way to make remarks, Instca I uf
sending news, an I It seems proper that tio should be
disciplined accordingly. The ordinary observer
would presume that the vol era ot tho district In
which tho candldato resides know whit they desire,
nnd when their inndldato Is assailed they aro also
presumed to knuw how to protect I1I111.
"Iho Hon. Nicholas Kane," quoting Iho Albany
.tiV'is, "Is ot tho material that our best representa
tive men aro mado of, a thorough man ot the people,
winning tils way In llfo by his own stout heart nn I
natural ability, and Idcntlllcd nt all limes with the
great Industrial army that dcvilnpa tho llllmilablo
resources nf our country." "No mnu Is moro
thoroughly conversant with the needs and Interests
of labor, nor moro practli al In his Ideas on nil Indus
trial subjects" "lie Is a sterling example uf that
noblo typo of American chancier, a self ma lo
man "
Much words of pralso at his own homo are sum
clcntly amplo to refute the Idea that Mr. Kano
would not be a proper man fjr Hcprcscnlntlvo In
Congress from Iho Nineteenth New York District,
and It Is nlso lobe behoved that tho voters ot that
district aro tho best Judges of tho qualifications ot
their candl late, and need 110 Instruction as to whom
they shall nominate, vote for, and elect.
Mr. Kane Is a man who has risen from Ihe people.
and Is of Iho people. Ilo thoroughly understands
their needs and wishes, and It ho lias not received a
colleglalo education ho has shown his ability In a
manner sufficiently notable lo demonstrate that he
Is well Informed, capable and incrgctlc, and abun
dantly ablo to care for himself and frlcmls,and,lf
elected to Congress, will no doubt prov 0 to his con
stituents that their couQdcnce was vt dl placed. He
has received Ihe usual common school education,
and It has been of moro value to him than a colle
giate courso has to somo wo wot of. Ho has shown
himself to bo manly and Independent, anl through
his energy has amassed a large fortune.
Tho nomination Is not absurd, becauso his past
life Is a complcto refutation of nny such idea and ho
has proven his ability, and he will doubtless mani
fest that samo enthusiasm and energy In Congress
that has distinguished him during his past business
career. His friends In the District ot Columbl 1 havo
faith In him, and know that ho will bo a valuable
member of tho Ilouso of Iteprcsentallvcs. 'I hey
will be glad to welcomo nun here, ami tho voters of
his district will bo honored themselves by electing
him.
