Tteprescntatlo Norton returned to
IVflshilifcton yesterday from Ohio
where h e has been In the thick of the
mayoralty contents which have been en
livening the politics of the Buckeje
State for several weeks past He is
cheerful and optimistic ocr the out
look for the future success of the Demo
cratic party In his State and beliocs
that the outcome of the contests in the
cities portends well
lie Inclines to the opinion that there
is a jjreat deal doing in politics
In Ohio and that the straws
Bhowinp the way the wind blew in the
maoralty contests were many and
were definite in the trend they indi
cated Furthermore he suspects that
Ohio may extend her business of pro
ducing Presidential candidate and
may offer as a change one of Demo
cratic faith
No one can deny that the city elec
tions show a remarkable Increase In the
power of the Democratic party In the
State of Ohio he said last night In
many cases Democratic majors hae
been elected where Democratic mayors
have not held the scat for generations
und the war has been carried Into
Africa with a vengeance That In the
very State of lir JtcKlnlcy and espe
cially of Hanna It should be possible
for Democrats to win In some cases by
euch handsome majorities Is a most en
couraging sign It rot only shows the
strength of the Democrats but It dem
onstrates the weakness of the Repub
licans I am sure that were the In
fluence which the money of the great
Interests headed by Hanna and others
everts lemoved een for a short time
ve would see a remarkable change In
the politics of Ohio
I think that the people are to a
great degree naturally Democratic One
lias only to go to the figures and facts
of these recent elections to show it
Tom L Johnson won in Cleveland by
about GO00 majority Sam Jones of
Toldo had a handy 2000 to spare
Henckle of Columbus had at least 40J
If not MO lead over his competitor And
what does all this mean It simply
means that the citizens voting without
aiij hiiberv or any Influence of money
chose the men with Democratic prin
ciples to lad them
Hanna and his croud did not make
much of an effort to Influence the city
elections They could not do it because
Ihey had no money at hand to uc The
drain put upen them by the campaign
fund during the Presidential election
was so great that the treasury was ex
hausted So the cify elections went ac
cording to the w ill of the people Ham
ilton Urna and a dozen other county
towns of similar size about which no
fuss was made all went Democratic
and I quote them simply to show how
the feeling for tho Democracy has
grown in rum districts
The -victory of Henckle was one
northy of notice He won without any
assistance and against the opposition
of all the politicians even the most In
fluential of his own party It was the
same old question of street car fares
and extension of the street railway
franchises and Henckle had his way
by about 400 or more votes That was
really a plurality of about 2000 for the
Republicans had previously carried the
city of Columbus by about lJOO That
you see was really bearding the Re
publican lion in his den The great
weakness of the Republican party lies
in its constant bickerings There arc
Toraker and antl Forakcr factions
Daugherty and anli Daughcrty parties
supporters of Nash and anti Nasli men
This is an evidence of the fact that the
party is rapidly losing its hold on tho
Tom Johnson in Cleveland did the
Fame thing as did Henckle and did it
handsomely The Democrats are b
glnnlng to look upon Johnson as a can
didate for high offices He is in a pe
culiar position He is a rich man and
lias made all his money in htreet i all
ways Now he is going to fight against
the laws under which he made his
money He admits that he was enabled
to amass his fortune by lrtue of enact
ments which he now considers wrong
lie is against the favoritism of law
which he clalins Is the father of all Im
mense fortunes He is for the 3 ccnt
street railway fare nnd it is surprising
to see how great his following Is Thou
sands of voters In the city irrespective
of party are asking that his theories
be put into effect immediately includ

The Republicans have been redis
ricting the State In order to be defi
nitely sure of a Republican Legislature
They had planned to hac about sixty
nlno Republicans to thirty eight Demo
crats but the outcome of tho mayoralty
has quite upset the calculations If
Johnson should succeed In the fall as
he has in the recent city election he
would be able to place In the Legisla
ture ten Democrats where tho Repub
licans expected to have their men The
lie Toledo and five Columbus legis
lators may also be Democrats
Nash will of course be the Repub
lican nominee for the Governorship but
he has made many enemies for himself
because of his attitude toward the
Sacngerfest and because he is alleged
to have killed the Jl000000 appropria

There is a large collection of busts and
relief portraits of authors joets musi
cians statesmen and other distinguished
persons In the copj right division of the
Library of Congress accumulated dur
ing many years Inttl recently they were
not so placed that they could be enjoved
by anvone but In going over the work
ing divisions of the Library Mr Put
nam the Librarian came upon the col
lection and conceived a practical iIan for
its disiosItlon
A shelf within easy reach will be put
alKut the walls of the rooms In the LI
nry devoted to the blind and upon these
will lx placed the portraits They can
then be readily handled by the sightless
and through the tljs of their fingers they
will come to know the features and char
actetlstlcs of the ieople already known
to them In literature
To Ellen Terr is due the suggestion
which has been carried out by Mr Put-
tmn During her last visit to vvasmng
ton she met a numlwr of those who fre
quent the reading rooms for the blind
at the Congressional Library and sent
them tickets to one of her matinees Af
ter the performance she invited them up
on the sttge and allowed them to hold
he hand and even to run the tips of their
lingers over her face that they might
see her This so touched her heart that
she had a portrait of herself made In re
Iltf and sent to the reading room for
At the lime of the death of
the blind were much Inter
ested In him and his history and were
given some interesting talks by different
people A bust of the general that had
been tent to the copyright division dur
ing the Worldr Fair by a well known
Jujarese artist was sent to the reading
room and the blind icojle exclaimed In
a breath How like the Japanese our
Iresldent a Sure cuough the little
Jij had elevated ejtbrons and other
wise glvn to the really good portrait of
the ex President a decidedly Japanese
cast of countenance
When told this incident Sir Putnam
nt once decided to place these bust por
traits in the reading room for the blind
It is no longer the cutom to send Uther

Children and grown jieojde will gather
today If the weather is fine In the lot
behind the Executive Mansion nnd con
tinue a custom the origin of which goes
lck to pagan antiquity The egg rolling
as a part of the Raster celebration In
Washington Is a thing distinctively
Washingtonlan and the custom has Its
counterpart In no city of the United
With the usual Presidential generosity
orders have been issued for opening the
grounds to the jiublic without restriction
on Laster Monday for the egg rolling and
the other games and iiastlmes peculiar
to the day The Marine Band the music
of which makes so great a part of the
cheer Is now on tour in the West There
are no other Government bands In the
city cither at the Washington Barracks
or at Fort Mjcr and at first It was feared
that the children would have to forego
their music But the disappointment will
be avoided for the Fourth Artillery Band
has been sent from Tort Monroe and
will provide the customary music The
band arrived last night will play all day
today and will take part tomorrow In the
ceremonies attending the unveiling of
the Logan statue
For several das the Presidents garde
ner Henry Pflster has been at work ar
ranging for the protection of his pltnts
and flowers In all parts of the grounds
are shrubs and oung trees which arc of
great value and could not be replaced
easily if they were destroved Eachjear
fSardener Pflster has a larger and still
larger crowd to handle The children
romp and rlay more and there Is more
and more danger of the shrubs and bulbs
Whig de3troed By a system of wire
netting and small snake fences he hopes
to keeii the Httlo feet oft his precious
plots and to keep tho eager little hands
from plucking the blossoms and leaves
which have just begun to appear Even
at the best ho can do a great deal of
damage Is done nnd mnch Is ruined be
jond hope of being replaced The grass
especially suffers the most and months
will pats before It flourishes again
The egg rolling custom has existed In
Washington for forty odd jears as plenty
of men now in the decline of llfo can
testlfj It appeared first on the grounds
of the Capitol and those who remember
it forty years ago remember It as being
held there Tho Capitol was then only
partial completed but the grounds had
been laid out On the lawns that extend
ed from the west front were several ter
races covered with soft grass and quite
steep Here It was that the youngsters
of Washington went for their Eater
celebration There was the usual egg
rolling down the grassy terraces which
wero admirably adapted to such a pas
time and the children who rolled the
eggs to the bottom of tho Incline usually
rolled themselves after There were other
games of an old fashioned sort HSe
and many others which have long since
gone out of fashion
At the brow of the hill stood a foun
tain nnd the games of the day the merry-making
music and the rest centred
around this Even In those days the
custom of egg picking was common
among the boys and the guinea keet egg
was prized as the victor over all other
eggs and brought man cracked victims
to Its owners pockets a
Th6 egg rollers at the Capitol grounds
were t w nt first and forty years ago
did not number more than a hundred or
more But as the years went by the
crowds grew larger and more boisterous
The grounds of the Capitol were improv
ed with plants and shrubs and the Eas
ter merry makers did a great deal of
damage rinally the Architect of the
Capitol put his foot down on the use of
Ida grounds for the Easter egg rolling
and in this he was supported by Con
gress In 1S73 a law was pamod by both
houses prohibiting the gathering of
crowds on the Capitol grounds or egg
rolllng nt rastt r time
Toward Georgetown there was another
little group of Easter egg rollers who
did their celebrating nt the grounds of
the Naval Observatory The act of Con
gresi did not hurt them But It would
hive proved a great hardship for the
children who lived on Capitol Hill and
In the northeast jiortlon of the city If
the wife of President limes had not
taken up their cause She could not re
peal an act of Congress but she could
open the grounds of the Executive Man
sion to the little Easter merry makers
This she did and on Easter of 1S7S the
egg rolling In the Presidents grounds as
It now exists with Its music and other
accompaniments began It has contin
ued with but little alteration except
growth in size from that day to this
The crowd that entered the Presidents
grounds on Easter 1ST3 was barely 200
strong Last vear there were inside the
gates over 25 The first was composed
chiefly of children but latterly the pro
jiortlon of adults has Increased much to
the hindrance of the little ones enjoy
ment The grounds arc thought by the
gardener to be far too crowded even for
bafcts sake and because of the great
Jam the real sport of egg rolling Is on the
decline The children cannot play their
games as they used to and the Eister
egg rolling Is considered to be In danger
of losing its distinctive element and be
coming merely a musical concert and a
Man people In Washington have sought
to discover the origin of the custom of
rgg roiling 11 is tuougtii to lie without
doubt a German custom Instances of It
arc reivjrted among thePerslansandEgp
tians The use of eggs at Eastertide In
both France and Germany Is common In
this age In lioth countries children play
games with them throwing and rolling
them It Is also the custom for the pi
rents on Eustcr morning to hide the dyed
eggs In nests the child discovering them
to own them According to one legend the
practice started In the thirteenth century
and is traced to a Queen of Burgundy
who dlpjied the colored eggs hid them In
her iialaee grounds and then allowed the
joor children to come In and hunt for
them From Burgund which was then
a jiart of German the custom spread
among the Teutons
its apjiearance In Washington when It
Is found In no other elt Is difficult to
explain It is known however that aliout
1TS5 a little town called New Hamburg
was founded Just below Georgetown by
u iarty of Germans who sailed up tho
Potomic Itlver In their boat It Is barely
possible that these Germans started the
custom which extended to Washington
and has since beer kept uj by ever one
legardless of nationality

Orders were telegraphed Saturday by
Secretary Long to Rear Admiral Itemey
at Manila to enlist 500 Filipino natives In

These men are to be emploed as firemen
on vessels of the fleet In the Philippines
Experience has shown that white fire
men on shlju on the Asiatic Station soon
succumb to ih exertion of working In
the engine rooms on account of the added
enervation of tropical heat and Admiral
Rcmey asked for authority to cmjiloy

of the smaller gunboats captured or imr
chased by Che Government from Spain
but these were not regularly enlisted
Their service has been satisfactory
It lias been necessary to send most of
the white firemen to Japan for recupera

saved by the emploinent of the Filipinos
who rapidly recover In their own climate
from the cfrects of overexertion In the

and milliner
With the song of many birds chirping
overhead the rustle of silken skirts and
the busy chatter of conversation prob
ably the texts of morning sermons and
the lesson of the day were In most In
stances forgotten but these are only
minor formalities of Easter while the
greater observance of the day Is found
In the changes wrought by the fashion
plates What custom has established for
jears was strictly obeyed esterday
If envy brooded In anv breast she was
kept closely concealed for there was not
a maiden or a matron in nil that throng
which sauntered leisurely up and down
the broad highway In the glittering sun
shine but thought that her own indi
vidual bonnet wes the most becoming and
her own jiretty gown the mo3t stunning
and btst fitting of any in all that bril
liant array of finery Street costume
unlike ballroom garb Is not to be de
scribed save to say that displayed es
terday was all beautiful and superb
Up and down the street the pedestrians
moved for three hours studying new de
signs In millinery gleaning hints and sug
gestions for new draperle with their
handsomely gowned sisters for models
finally the shadows began to grow long
er from the west gradually the ranks of
the promenaders began to thin society
sought shelter from the evening dew
which does not harmonize well with
dainty laces and fluffy feathers the seats
In the uhllc Iiarks and squares became
vacant and the grand spectacular Easter
pageant on Connecticut Avenue was at au
