A Bold Bnrslary. It was discovered Saturday morning that the residence of Justice Field, No. 21 First Blreet northeast, had been entered by burglars, who stole silverware and other goods to the amount of 3C00. and also exchanged overcoats with the Justice. The robbery was the more bold and dar ingly executed owing to the fact that on account ef sickness in the family members of the house hold were up and moving about; yet the presence ef the thieves was not discovered. Other exten Sye robberies arc reported on Capitol Hill. MAYNAED RESIGNS. NEW TELEPHONE DEVELOPMENTS. Causes Which Induced Br. Maynard to Surrender His Office So Compromise Yet Made with the Subscribers A Talk with One of the Trustees. At a meeting of the board of trustees of the National Telephone Exchange held on Sat urday last, George C. Maynard, esq., tendered his resignation as trustee and general manager of the exchange, which was accepted. Premising that this action hd some reference to the issue pending between the Telephone Company and the Subscribers' Association, a representative of The Republican called last night upon J. B. Edmonds, esq., one of the trustees, and asked him if it was true that Mr. Maynard's resignation had been accepted. " It is," answered Mr. Edmonds. " In tendering his resignation Mr. Maynard stated that he had learned with much surprise that certain com plaints had been made by several subscribers re garding himself as the manager of the company, and in order that there might be nothing to em barrass the company in dealing with the issue presented by the Subscribers Association he de sired to withdraw from the position of manager, and also from that of trustee." The question was then asked if there had been any action token by the company in regard to the ultimatum established by the executive committee of the Subscribers' Association, fixing April 1 as the date for severing their connection with the exchange and giving up their telphones. "No." replied Mr. Edmonds. "I don't think there has been -anything done; certainly not so far as we are concerned. While we are now and have been for some time endeavoring to work out an equitable readjustment of rates, the great diffi culty that meets us at the very outset is the lack of any accurate date upon which to base our calcula tions. For instance, while we know how many calls are made per day or month from the telephone of any given subscriber, in a great many cases these calls are made by outsiders, who, under the rules of the company and nccordlng to the terms of our con tracts with such subscribers, are not entitled to use the telephone at all. You can see how unjust it would be to any subscriber to include such calls in our estimate of the extent to which he -has used his telephone, and how equally unjust it would be to the company to continue to do the busi ness of a dozen or more people or a whole neighborhood for a single subscription of $46 per annum. It is our earnest desire to popularize the telephone and extend its use to a point where the investment will prove a profitable one. To this end the trustees, assisted by a. com mittee of stockholders, are now endeavoring to solve the problem of the lowest rate that will yield a fair profit on the investment. It has been urged that a cheaper telephone can be secured which will materially reduce the first cost of the service to the company. Now we are in no sense bound to the Bell Telephone Company to use its instruments, and it is well to credit us with fair common sense in conducting our own affairs. The question of telephone patents has been very carefully investigated by the best legal talent, and we arc informed that the Bell telephone is the only one that we can legitimately use. This dis poses of the question of cheaper instru ments. In fixing a rate we have en deavored to deal fairly and in a business like way with the questions involved. We have no desire to exact anything beyond a fair return for the service furnished, but at the same time we do not propose to do business for 'glory' alone. We shall proceed upon this basis, and if any sub scriber concludes that he cannot afford to pay the rates fixed for the service, and wishes it discon tinued, we will take his telephone out" " What about the matter of removing wires from the homes of those subscribers who give up their telephone those who are members of the Sub scribers' Association?" asked The Republican. " Well," replied Mr. Edmonds, "I don't think there will be any precipitate action in that direc tion. Where a man has given the company Jhe right to attach its wires to his house he will find that when he desires them removed his legal remedy docs not consist in taking the matter in his own hands and cutting them loose. In this, as in all our dealings with the public, we shall en deavor to merit fair treatment by fair dealing." DEMOCRATIC NONSENSE. A Talk About Iteorjranliation-What Some oftlie tender Say. Chicago, March 26. The Times, which advocates a reorganization of the Democratic party, publishes correspondence, giving interviews with prominent Democrats throughout the coun try as to the future of their party. The names of very few men of national reputation appear among those interviewed. Daniel Dougherty, of Philadelphia, who nominated General Hancock, was opposed to any change in the organization or principles of a party that had a record as good as that of any party that had ever existed, and was daily growing stronger. He was in favor of pro tection, non. Charles Thompson, of Massachu setts, ridicules the idea of abandoning the Demo cratic party, and thinks it is sure to triumph in 1884. Daniel S. Pike, of Maine, is not in favor of the abondonment of any of the cardinal principles of the party. He opposes agitation of the subject now, and is not in favor of making the tariff question a prominent issue in the next campaign. General II. H. Sibley, father of the Democracy in Minnesota, said: "I am strongly in favor of maintaining the name and organization of the party, and oi making the next presidential canvass on the issue of tariff for reve nue only." William H. English, of Indiana, said : "I know of no good reason why the Democratic organization should be abandoned. The tariff ought to be the issue of the next campaign." Senator Gorman, of Maryland, emphatically is op posed to a change of name, and advocates the old platform of tariff for revenue only. 31 r. 3Innon' Farewell Sermon. Kev. A. F. 3Iason, who tendered his resignation some time ago to the congregation of the E Street Baptist Church, preached his farewell sermon last evening. His text was John lv:30-37 "And he that reapeth receiveth wages and gath ereth fruit unto, life eternal, that both he that sowcth and he uiat reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true. Ouesoweth and another reapeth." In his discourse Mr. Mason referred feelingly to the fact that it was the last time he would occupy that pulpit He gave a brief historical retrospect of the church, mentioning the fact that the first sermon was preached in the church thirty-nineyearsago the 7th of this month. The only one of the original mem bers now connected with the church is Mr. Andrew Roth well, who is now lying very ill. Mr. Mason has accepted a charge in Milwaukee. There will be a farewell reception in his honor at E Street Church on Wednesday night. A Lively Runaway. About eleven o'clock last night a horse atttched to a buggy, occupied by a Mr. Griffith, be came frightened by a collision with a passing ' Herdic," near the corner of Fifteenth street and tho Avenue, and dashed down the Avenue. Mr. Griffith was thrown out, and received severe cuts about the head. The buggy was completely wrecked, the top and a portion of the scat being torn off and afterward picked up and carried to the Central Police Station. The horse, with the splintered remnants of the vehicle, was finally stopped by an officer In the Division and carried to Naylor"s stable. Special Weather Bnlletln. The following special bulletin is fur nished the Associated Press by the Chief Signal Officer of the army : " Except occasional snow in New England, New York, and Minnesota, the weather is clear end cold. Freezing temperatures are now reported from New England westward to Iowa and Minnesota. Fair weather is indicated for the Atlantic States for Monday and Tuesday. It will be slightly wanner on those days in New England, and decidedly warmer in the rest of the country east of the Mississippi River." The Dasliaway Jlcctlnsr. The Dashaway Club held their regular Sunday night meeting at Odd-Fellows' Hall. The announcement that Charlie Nye was to speak drew an audience sufficient to fill the hall to its utmost capacity. The president, Bud Eggleston, presided. Ned Humphreys was the first speaker. Mr. Charlie Nye followed with one of his solIoT talks, interspersed with wit and humor. About twenty-five young men signed the pledge. Columbia Inn School. At a meeting of the class of 1881 of the Columbia Law School, held on liarch 26, the fol lowing executive committee were appointed to make arrangements for the commencement exer cises, which will take place in June: Eugene Rosis, chairman; R.

Jaaatuclicb, Caraeresa SMnstrela, tae Ceralqae, aad Other Attract lose. At the National Theatre this week the celebrated Carncross" Minstrels will pay their an nual visit to, Washington. This troupe is one of tho oldest in continuous existence, and contains among its membership the brightest and funniest ornaments In the minstrel line. Among the fea tures of tho programme will be a burlesque upon the great Bernhardt entitled " Sarah Barnyard, in Her Great Emotional Play Colmeel; or, the Fate of a Croquette," which Is said to be excruciatingly funny. This company has always been warmly received here, and it may safely be predicted that their entertainments will be crowded each night of their stay. F0nD'." OPEKA -HOUSE JAXArSCHEK. This celebrated tragedienne commences an en gagement at the Opera-House to-night It has been some time since she has visited this city, and during her absence she is.said to have gained in power and finish. She will appear this evening In the dramatization of Dickcn's" Bleak House," and in regard to her performance in this piece the Bal timore Gazdte says : With a versatility which contrasts strangely with the quiet dignity of Zady Deadlock as she appears to the world, Madame Janauschek presents with consummate skill a series of distinct and vivid phases of widely-differing emotions. Her comedy acting as Hortenec is perfect in its realism, while the picture of the suffering, conscience-stricken woman, who is Eeeking to shield Jier child from the remorseless pursuit of Talkinghom, is noble in its dignified reserve, its pathos, and its unyielding strength or will. THEATEE COMIQUE. The fresh faces announced for this week at the Comique "are the Davenport brothers, Hallen and Hart, Williams and Sully, Nellie Germon, James Kearney, Mills and Warren. It will be the lost week of the Wesleys, Daisy Kernell, and Maud Leigh, who have become prime favorites, and whose departure will be regretted ; and the same may be said of Charles O. and Gertie Seaman.

Seats may be secured at Ellis' music store. HESSCHEL, BAILEY, JOSEFFY. The concert announced for Wednesday night at Lincoln Hall is one of extraordinary merit. All the artists possess the highest reputations. Hen- schel is said to be the finest baritone that has been heard for many a day, and the fact that he has been engaged to sing at the grand festival in New York is a sufficient guarantee of his excellence. Miss Lillian Bailey has acquired the highest suc cess in. cultured Boston as a vocalist of superior attainments, andJoseffy has created a furore as a pianist unequaled by any performer who has Visited this country in year. Thesale of scats will commence this morning at Metzerott's. jonx B. COUGH. This gentleman, who never fails to interest and amuse his audiences, will lecture at Lincoln Hall thLs evening, taking for his subject " Twenty Years After." This is said to be a new temperance lec ture, and the temperance people of the District should turn out in force and listen to him. Per haps he will be able to infuse new life into the members of the various organizations, the most of which are leading a very precarious existence at present Mr. Gough has probably done as much as any single individual to aid the temperance cause, and if this lecture is to be a sketch of his experiences in twenty years of labor In this work it will prove of the deepest interest to every one. FOKEPACGIl'S CIRCCS. The circus season will open one week from to day, and, as usual, Adam Forepaugh will be the first on the ground. Although this veteran show man has always presented a most complete organi zation, he has this year exceeded all former exhi tions, and will offer attractions, both in the menag erie branch and in the circus arena, never before presented.

Bev. W. . Ward Fenasll? Introduced to the Conarrcsatlon of Foundry Chnrch. The Methodist pulpit of Washington is atlast satisfactorily filled, except as regards Ryland ChapeL Not many of the ministers at present offi ciating are strangers in the city, most of the ex changes being from ono pulpit in the city to another. Of the additions to the Washington churches the most important change is the Foundry. The new pastor here, Rev. William F. Ward, preached his first sermon yesterday morning, Mr. Ward is an easy and fluent speaker, and bids fair to become an acceptable' substitute for the previous incumbent of -this pul pit no mean praise when it is remembered that the previous incumbent was Dr. Lanahan. Mr. Ward's voice is a- rich, full, resonant baritone, of much power and considerable training. It is a sympathetic voice, and, combined with a grace ful delivery and a fluent diction, proclaims Mr. Ward a very effective pulpit orator. His sermon yesterday morning was from St John, xt:35 "Jesus Wept" " In the evening he preached from the text, " And They Stood by the Cross," found in St John, xixJL The theme was the "Transcendant Importance of the Human Soul and the Supreme Merit of the Atonement." The preacher Invited attention to the cross on which the Saviour suffered, and presented several lessons to be gathered from the contem plation. He dwelt earnestly and eloquently upon the presence of the women at the cross, paying a graceful compllmentto the religious zeal and prin ciple of the sex. The chief lesson to be learned, however, was the transcendant importance of the human soul, for which this mighty sacrifice was made. This transcendant importance was specially manifested in the immortality of the soul. The most tremendous thought that can be entertained by man, next to the fact of the Godhead, is the immortality of bis soul. No power in the uni verse can destroy it. We have but to stand by the cooss and look at the bleeding body of the dying Jesus to realize how important God Himself regards the human soul. "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believed might not perish, but have everlasting life." What world? Clearly not this one, for which the fires of final de struction are now preparing, but the world of the human souL The importance of the human soul was further demonstrated by the consultation held by the Trinity of the Godhead, as re corded in the first chapter of Genesis, the earliest mention of the Trinity, over its pro posed creation. "Let us make man In our image," said God. Only God could create man, Only God could save him. The supreme merit of the Atonement was evidenced in the fact that it sufficed to save not one, but millions of souls. The divine sacrifice was for alL Once accomplished, it stood eternal. Man, the heir of all the ages, was the special object of the boundless love of the universal God. All that was asked of him was his concurrence with and acceptance of tho divine sacrifice. DR. DEALE STICKS. He Preaches Ills First Sermon to a t'on sresntlon Composed of Straneers. The action of the Bishop in deciding that the appointment of Rev. Dr. Deale as pastor of Ryland Chapel could not be reversed had the effect of attracting a large audience at that place of worship yesterday, at both morning and even ing service. Dr. Deale took formal possession of the pulpit and took for the text of his first sermon I Cor inthians, i:23-24, "But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; but unto Jhem which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God." His words were listened to with marked attention through out. As was anticipated, the eloers and stewards, with one exception, most of the older and sub stantial members of the congregation, and the regular chohywere absent. It was noticeable that most of those present were strangers, many being from Wesley Chapel and; other Methodist churches, evidently drawn thither by curiosity. Those who withdrew do not antagonize Dr. Deale personally, but attach all the blame for the course affairs have taken to Presiding Elder Brown, who, they claim, has ignored their wishes and suggestions during the entire controversy. Rev. L. M. Gardner, the former pastor of the chapel, still occupies theparsonage, but will retire in favor of Dr. Deale on Tuesday next The dissatisfied members are at present undetermined as to what course they will pursue in the future, but will probably come to some agreement during this week. After the morning service the entire con gregation filed up to the pulpit and congratulated Dr. Deale, and seemed highly pleased with his teachings. All Souls' Xciv Pastor. A letter was read in All Souls' Church yesterday from Rev. Rush R. Shippen, of Boston, accepting the call extended him by the church some two weeks ago to become its pastor.

Grindell Reynolds, Rev C. G. Ames, Rev. Joseph May, Rev. Clay MacCauley. and Rev. C.R.Weld. VIRGINIA NEWS. The Virginia Annual Conference will meet at Danville May IS.
