It is unique in its way, and they regard it as the greatest compliment yet bestowed upon their famous show: "JClaw & Krlanger, Theater Managers, New York: "Dear Sirs: I saw that 'Jack and the Beanstalk' show of yours in Boston last winter. My wife and daughters were with me, and they allowed that they had never been such beautiful dresses and such pretty combinations of colors. Being ladies, they knew all about such things. They were a mite afraid to go to the show, but they went to please me, and they enjoyed every bit of it, which would have been impossible if there had been any coarse or vulgar jokes got off. 1 admired the singers and the comic men, especially the fellow who played the fairy queen, and those girls you call the 'eight pret ty maids on the program. It was all very fine, and I hope you will always have suc-h large audiences as you had the night we saw it. "We have only been home from the North a couple of weeks, and I have been wondering what I could send to you that would be appreciated. "Yesterday, while out driving, I saw the largest beanstalk I have ever seen. It reminded me of one that grows up and is supposed to reach the giant's castle in the clouds in your play, so I had it cut down, cleaned and packed, and have sent it to you by freight, pre paid. It measured sixty-live feet high, and there are over 200 pods on it. The leaves are the largest and of the rich est color I have ever seen on a stalk. You will find it fixed up with ribbons, which ns done by my wife and daugh ters. "Wishing you all the success you de serve. 1 remain, dear sins, yours re spectfully. "SAMUEL GROSVENOR." Together, one sees little resemblance between Frank Daniels, the comic op era comedian and Charles Frohman, the theatrical manager. But appar ently when not together Frohman is sometimes taken for Daniels. At any rate this happened last Saturday aft ernoon in Boylston street, Boston. The two celebrities met by chance in front of the new hotel building. "Hullo Frank," said Frohman. "Say I was standing in the hotel a few mo ments ago in a kind of a brown study. Some one slapped me on the shouldei and cried: 'Hullo Frank. The man was to me a stranger, but I said 'Hul lo. Says he: " "How's business, Frank.' " "First rate,' I replied. "'Good,' said he. 'Glad to hear it Knew you would do well in Boston. Haven't been over to see The Idol's Eye," but am coming.' " 'Do,' said I. " 'Sure. said he and added: 'Well, good-by. You're looking well. Must be five years since weTlast met.' Then he left. "Didn't he touch you for a pass?" Daniels asked. "Xo," Frohman replied. "Charlie," quoth Daniels, "that man was stringing you." One of the comedians in Ward and Yokes -company has a little story to tell on himself. He is Gus C. Wein berg, who has achieved considerable fame as a song-writing comedian. He plays Keen S. Harper, in "The Gover nors," this season, but this was a case in which he was neither keen nor sharp. He was up at Ann Arbor, and evidently, when he landed in that learned town, was unaware that .the university gathers in its students from most countries of the globe and treats them all just alike when they get there. The comedian strolled into a room where several of the students were having a game of billiards, among them being a native of Hong Kong. Just as Weinberg appeared on the ALL-WOOL CARPETS.

The student took one good look at Weinberg and said quietly,"Young man, your remarks are entirely uncalled for." The next thing Weinberg knew he was outside the door, and he says he feels about six inches high whenev er he thinks of that occurrence. FIFTY YKAItS AX JBMLM'UOR. t Difficulties About the Golden An. iiiversury of Austria's; !!uler. (From the New YorK Sun.) On JJecemlier 2, 1S-18, Francis Joseph, present Emperor oC Austria. King of Hun gary anil King of Bohemia, though he never has been crowned as Mich, succeeded Fer dinand IV", who abdicated, and his corona tion took place in Vicuna. On December 2, 1S&S, there will l.-e celebrated in Vi enna 1 and probably in Budapest as well, though Francis Joseph was not crowned King of Hungary until June 8.1SU7, thirty years ago, the fiftieth anniversary of the coronation of the Austrian monarch, and already, notwithstanding the condition of affairs that prevails in the empire, elabo rate preparations are beingmade for the Austrian monarchs with a record or fifty years upon the throne are rare in history. Indeed, there has been only one other since tiie founder of the house of Hapshurg, Ru dolph I, ascended what was, then the throne of Austria and of Germany as well in 127S, more than six centuries ago. Rudolph of Hapsburg reigned only ttiir teeuyears, and the one Austrian or Austro Gennan monarch in the long line between Rudolph and Francis Joseph, who ruled ror more than fifty years, was Frederick IV. lie was known as the Tacific possi bly the attribute of placidity accounted for Ins long reign and ascended the throne in 1-1S9 andretaine dlt tihttl 1493. TnecoiiditionofaffairsinAus.tro-Ilungary at present is not propitious for a very hearty celebration of any political anniversary commemorative of the events of rifty years ago. These were somewhat e.cfting An insurrection in Vienna began on March 13. An insurrection against the power of Austria among the Italian-.-peaking sub jects of the Emperor began one week later; an upribing against the Emperor caused his flight to the Tyrol In liaj" an Insurrec tion among the Bohemians, against the power of the Emperor of Austria, began in June in the city of Prague, and in the au tumn of the same year the Hungarian re bellion against the power of the Vienna government and the establishment of the Hungarian national government under Kossuth took place, in. September. It would seem to be evident enough rrom all this that in the present excited state or affairs in, the Austrian Empire the prop osition to have a golden anniversary cele bration of events that took place in the tumultuous period ot 1548, would be neither tihiely nor prudent, "but to avoid the perilb ot such a celebration it iu intended by those having charge of the matter to make the anniversary ot the crownimr of the Emperor a personal celebration niprely thecommcmoraticinotanoventwhich was entirely distinct from the other occurrences or 1848. With one exception, Francis Joseph is now the senior of European monarchs in length ot reign, the exception being Queen Victoria, who ascended the throne iu 1S37, and whose sixtieth anniversary was celebrated last year. Francis Joseph was eighteen when he ascended the throne.

THE TIMES, WASHINGTON, f SUNDAY, LOCAL WORLD OF LABOR. Everything has been very quiet during the past week in local labor circles. So far as labor interests are immediately con cerned, the only matter of local import ance which lias been considered is that of a conference between the Trades Unionists and the proprietors of the local breweries. Tliis question has been under advisement by all parties concerned for some months, but sj far no agreement has been reached. The trouble arose out of some differences at the Consumers' Brewery. After several conferences between the representatives ot local labor and the the directors of the brewing company, the difrerenceswerc fi nally settled to the entire satisfaction of all parties. Tlu tame causes ot trouble, a technical discrimination against organ ized lab,.r, by refusing to u. tlu label or tiie local union of brewery workers, came very near leading to serious differences be tween local labor and the other large breweries in the city. The conservative course pursued by the Trades JJnlonists, however, has resulted in avoiding an open disruption between labor and the beer manufacturers up to this time, and there Is every prospect of an amicable settlement or the existing differences. .During the last week or ten days a con ference has been arranged for between the interested parties during the coming week, at whish a is confidently expected that iiu amicable arrangement, will -be reaclfedr The question of the hWr with ineirtbers of organized labor, however, is that; or. suf frage for the residents of" the JJistfictVaiuh they arc lending their wholejulluence to this end. At the meetings of the differ ent labor unions and assemblies the sub ject always receives more or less atten tion in the way of favorable discussion. At the last meeting ot the local Federation of Luu.ir the question received special attention, and was the subject of a series or resolutions, invltlag the co-operation ot all who arc interested In securing the right and privilege or surfrage for the residents ot the District. The local Federation is also deeply inter ested in the outcome of the Shernian-Culloin anti-ticket scalping bill, and nt their last meeting gave it considerable attention. The bill was denounced in umeasured terms as an unjunt discrimination against the storing classes, who, under ordinary circumstances, derive the greatest benefit from ticket-scalping.- The repeal of the law allowing ticket-scalping, the Jator nion say, would deprive a citizen of his liberty, iu so much thnt it would prevent him from disposing of hid property in open market. Again, It is contended, it faur rounds a railroad ticket with a sacredness with which no other kind or property is clotlud. Tiie Federation at its last meeting adopted the following resolution: Resolved, That the Fcdeiation ot Labor of the District otCohimbiais opposed toany legislation of this character, and jwrtlcu larly to these bills, In that they are unjust to those who are required to pay railroad lure; and be it further Ke.-olvcd.That we protest to the Senators and Representatives in Congress against the paNsctgf oT these measures or anj muii lar thereto, and respectfully petition them to oppose the same. The Trades Unionists also are watching legislation on the anti-ticket scalping bill. At the hearing on this subject before the Interstate Commission on last .Monday Mr. MUfoul Spohn, ex-president of the Central Labor Union, representing theTradesUnion ists or the District, appeared before the commission and in the name or organized lalmr in the city or Washington made nor mal protest against the passage of the bill. From v hat is known it is sate to say that the antl-scalplng bill will have a hard road to travel berore it passes both Houses of Congres. At the recent convention of the American Federation ot Labor it was de cided lo wage a relentless war against all legislation of this nature. The antl-scalplng bill was discussed with earnestness by the delegate rrom all parts or the country, and It was the coiisenstisof opinion that the war against all such leKilntlon would be carried by tiie members or organized labor into every Concessional district In the United States during the next campaign. It is known that in many or the Congressional districts that the majorities are very small. Tills is especially true of many or the West ern districts, and It Is Iu these that organized labor Intend to make a strong fight against any and all members ot Congress who vote for or In any other way lend their assist ance to the passage ot the antl-sculping bill. It is, of course, impossible to say at this time what the effect of snch avowed action ou the part of organized labor will have rarthcr than to predict that united ac tion by the voters who are membersoforgan l7ed labor In any Congressional district will probably result In many of the members of the Firry-fifth Congress remaining at home after the next Congressional election. At the hearing accorded the advocates of suffiage ror the residents of the District by the House Committee on the District of Columbia on Thursday last Mr. Spohn ap peared in behalf ot the workmgmen of Washington. The representatives or the Suffrage Association of Washington ar gued for suffrage from a constitutional standpoint and also because ot the claim that the .system of government under which the people of the District live is more expensive than that or any other city m the United States. Mr. Spohn, however, presented the mat ter from an entirly different standpoint lie said that on account ot the system of government thercarcnonieansof communica tion between themunicipalauthoritiesand the lalioring class ot the city. The differ ent departments of the work of the city, he said, are under the management ot heads created by the Commissioners so that in case ot grievances the workmen are given no opportunity to explain their complaints. An-instance or this kind occurred some time ago, and despite the efforts of the labor leedcrs or the District to get a hearing and adjust the matter it is still banging fire. Mr. Spohn re ferred to the law of the District in re lation to the examination of plumbers. An effort is being made by the Labor Exchange committee ot the Central Labor Union of New i'ork to establish "labor exchange depots" similar to those that have Ixjcn so successfully operated in several of the Western States. The scrip used for money is printed in brown on the race and green on the back. It resembles, a bond coupon more than a bank note. In the center ot the face is a globe, emblematic ot prosperity. Above it is in scribed "Capitalization of labor" and below it "Industrial liberty." In the upper right hand corner Is a fraction 1-1 00 or 2-100up to 100-100 which indicates the denomina tion ot the scrip. To the left Is a picture of Justice, inscribed, "The day of equity." Across the face Is written, "Balance due bearer in labor or the products ot labor by Labor Exchange Branch No. 282, New iorK City, N. Y 189s,'. r the number and location of some other branch. Tiie back bears a pictureln which a rail road train, with the engine labeled "Prog ress," the tender "Labor Exchange" and the cars "Plenty,' is, about to dash past a toppling aich which bears the inscription, "Progress stop! Legal-tender toll-gate." AH the Central Labor bodies in the city have held their seml-annnat elections for orf icers except the Building Trades Coun cil. The election for officers of that body should have been held more than two weeks ago, but lor some reason it was postponed until tomorrow night. Mr- Sli ver, who has been president of -the Council for 'nearly three years, has positively declined to stand for re-election, and up I A31TJSKMENTS. rK Bijou ; Theater Daily atices, 10, 20 ONLY THEATER I 9 i l S Frederick Haflen & & Moflie Fuller S The Sparring Corned)- Duo, The Great, the Wonderful European Artists, Hattie STEWART and GILLENTommy.

These cases, which occur 'not infrequently, are very distressing. Aliltou about the gen eral use of Christian science as a n.eaiib or dealing with disease is the difficulty of determining the competence ot the practitioner. The same objection exists as to doctors, but there are some means of protecting the public against maladroit or ignorant physicians. Apparently there is none against bungling Christian scien tists. Conceding, for the sake of argu ment, that an expert scientist is qualified to nave tiie charge or the sick, it is still conceivable that there are professed scl- entists Avlm ion'r tmr th..ir i emus who don t know their business, anil are not qualified to practice It. against sticn persons the public sei to have no protection.
