Tlio opostlo of rcsthotlclsm, who hoi created more or a craze than anything ilnco "rinaforc," made his debut beforo n Woshlngton audience at IJncoln Hall taut evening. JjTnco Mr. Wlldo has bcenjn tlio city his movements bno been follow cd with crcditablo nccuracy byTltr ItsrunMCAK, and through ila coluinm has tlio hero of tho sunflower lind Illy ult red iomo bits of trstlictlc cloquenco that were fresh and now.

Many went from Mr. Wlldo'a lecture to tho Spanish Minister's reception, and so their appearanco In tho hall was In full os. cnlng costume, whlrh added to tho brilliancy of tho scene. When tho hour of eight arrived Colonel W. K. Mono and Mr. lido stepped from behind tlio heavy curtains and In a lew brief words tlio Culouil presented tlio (esthete, who, after placing his manuscript upon tlio small desk, began his address, Tho appearance of tlio stage wos anything but beautiful, tho heavy cur tains forming a sombre background, and tho only articles of furniture being tho reading-desk, n small tabic, upon which was a glass ot water, and a foot-stool Tho appearanco or Mr, Uldu lias been critically described In thcsocolumnf, and It uly need bu said that , IIW CC1STIMK COVSIDTED r an evening dress-coat n white vest, black doc rtln kiito-brccches, black silk stockings, and pitcnt-lcathcrshocs, tied with wldo black ribbon, and licnuy black rosettes. When Mr. Wlldo com monccd there wns an expression of uneasiness nn the facts icil the audience, on account or tlio dim in ty with which ho was understood. Ills volco Is not strong nud ho has hot unpleasant English Intonation, with tlio rising Inflection, which Is so difficult for American cars to understand. At tho commence ment ho essajed a comersntlonal tone, and In that way woaoicn more Indistinct than toward tho clno or his address, when ho warmed up and was qulto plainly understood. Tho Impullctico of tho audience soon beenroo inanircst, andshortly ono man went out for a close, then two retired for two lines, then somoladlcstook courago to mako their exit for Ico cream, and probably fifty ormoro retired beforo tho close of tho address. TUB UltADUAI, nCTlnKMCNT reminded ono of the old gag about tho fellow tell ing n story In n country etoro who alwnjs told tho samo story and never; mads It interesting, aud ns soon as ho began the others would drop otT one by one, urdl he found ho was tilling his story to tho stove. Thoso svho were in tho bad scats wiro fortunate, for they could slldo out easily. Thoso who wcro In the body of tho house were uneasy bo cause ilhey could not get nsvay. When ho said that they hod listened to "Patience" far ono hundred nights and they might stand him for ono nlghtlt looked as if tbo audlcnco would hardly havo the patience to wait. There wcro but mm s lurries ok ai i iavsk ono when ho said that In order to be n successful poet a man should learn to set type, ono w hero ho told of the Instruction ho received to the In quiry alto what books a poet should read, tho re ply being tho dictionary, because all thobcaiillrul words wcro there, and tho other when ho fulded up his raonuscriptand retired. There wcro Ihrco v crsons who wcro thoroughly satlsPed with tho lecture tlio proprietor ol tho ball, tho resthuo, himself, becauso his salary was assured, and tho manager.
