BUTT &, CO., DRUGGISTS - - 518 MIDDLE ST. M1U? ASKED F?R PENSIONS Continued from Page 6. (served In tho Mexican war and after .ward In tho civil war in the Union Army shall be placed rn the rolls at , $24 a month. In view of the many measures to swell the pension rolls. It is somewhat of a relief to turn to tho bill Intro? duced by Representative Stephens. Tho preamble recites that there Is much Just complaint because of an enormous ex? penditure for pensions and that the list is constantly increasing; therefore, it is proposed, pensioners who possess $1,000 property, or who receive a salary from the government or from any State, county, municipal or corporation In ox ceBa of the amount of pension to which they are entitled, shall bo no longer pensionable- No more pensions, ac? cording to the terms of this bill, are to be paid to pensioners residing abroad who are hot citizens of the United States. MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR DIS? ABLED. It also prescribes that the Commin sloner of Pensions shall have the au? thority to summon pensioners before examining boards with a view to asc *r tain if their disabilities c.mnot be les? sened or cured by treatment, and, if ho, Why the pensioner has not employed such treatment. On failure to comply ?with the recommendations to employ treatment the pensiontr 1s liable to be dropped from the rolls. All pens ons granted to heirs of any person except for military service are prohibited and the existing pensions repealed, except where the recipient shows they have become Impoverish-d In property since the granting of the pension. There are numerous other bills relat? ing to the general subject of tensions and a great many more for private pen? sions. The war with Spa'n Is scarcely over and 20,000 claims have already heen filed on" account of It. Tt cannot bo calculated how many more will fol? low, or how many cases, large and small, will grow out of the efforts to ct-ush the Fl ip'n^s. Even If we should have no more wars, the next century will he far advanced before there w'll bet any reasonable p'o-p-'ct of reducing o\p- enormous pinsl n list. Politicians, lohbyylsts and pension agents will all run a race to see who can do more to keep It at a figure costing more than tho gigantic standing armies of Euro ? *pran powers. PRESIDENT'S RECEPTION. BRILLIANT FUNCTION IN HONOR OF NEW YEAR'S DAY. (By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.) Washington, Jan. 1.?Beneath a sky na bright as Cuba and in a wind as cold as the Arctic, over 2,000 citizens stood in line at the White House gates to-day waiting to pay their respects to the President of the United States after the brilliant olllcial reception which ushered in the new year and marked the opetving uf the social season In Wash? ington. There have been larger crowds in the past at the White House New Year galhings, but few functions of the sort have been more brilliant and in" none have the crowds been better . handled, with less confusion or less of feminine heartaches and resentment ^ for dainty toilets disarranged in the crush. A HAPPY WIFE. i Beginning promptly at 11 n. m., the ceremony was concluded at 1:15, at ?which time 3,354 guests had passed down the line. Mrs. McKinley was present, despite her feeble health.- She remained in the Blue Parlor1 only through the strictly official section of the program, retiring then, as had boon previously arrat g;d. With the flu -h of excitement on her usually pale face, she looked bright and happy as she led the Cabinet procession down the cojridor with the President to the Blue Room. GREETED BY CHILDREN. The hrllltart lights reflected from the crystal chandeliers ov?rhead, the twin? kle of tiny electric globes through the heavy draperl s or sm lax and the Jun? gle of palms and foliage plants that ? walled the red-carpeted corrled, made an excellent stnere srttlng for the ofli cial procession as it moved down the staircase and through to the Blue Par , lor. where the receiving party was to take its Ftnnd. Mrs. McKinley bowed and smiled to the little crowds of favored spectators, ?who filled the end of the corridor to ?witness this opening act of the day's ceremonies. As she turned into the Blue Room she kissed the tir>s of her ?white gloved fingers to some of the children, who waved their hnnds to her from a point of vantage near the door. A QUESTION SETTLED. The troublesome Question of prece? dence between the Army and Navy was settled In favor of the former. General Miles loading the military contingent ?with Adjutant-General Corbln at his left side. After the army had passed In review Admiral Dewey, with the ven? erable Admiral Melville on his arm. led the naval line. Mra. Dewey, however, ?was with the receiving party, and was escorted in on the arm' of Secretary Long. THE .SHOW FEATURE. ? The Diplomatic Corps, which headed the list of guests, was, a3 always, the ehow featuro of the reception. Lord Pauncefote. the British Ambassador and dean of the Diplomatic Corps, led the way. The display of uniforms was brilliant. Turkish fez. gilded orders of Continental powers,tho fur-trimmed tu? nics and high, polished boots of the Russians; the queer, agate giecn, gold encrust d uniforms of tue Japan.se and the ermine-trimmed s lk. n robes of the Korean* and Chinese, ull combined to form a pletuie of unusual brilliancy. ?Special interest centred in the appear? ance of the Duke d'Aicos, the Spanish Minister, and his beautiful American , wife. It was the first White House ie-. ceptlon at which Spain has b en repre? sented since the close of hostilities, and the greetings accorded them were es? pecially cordial. Following the diplomats, the Ameri? can officials, judges of the Supreme Court. Senators and Representatives, department chi- fs and the like, made a long'.r, if less striking, procession. The reception to the general public con? cluded the function. ENTERTAINMENTS. The Secretary of State and Mrs. Hay entertained the members of tho Dip? lomatic Corps at breakfast ?t noon, at tl elr handsome residence on LaFayette] square. It was a repetition of the brill- j lancy attending the presence of the dip? lomatic representatives at the White House. Most of the wives and near relatives of the several Cabinet offlcers received during the day. The Admiral of the navy and Mrs. Dewey received a large number of call- j ers. GOEBEL SLATE WINS. WILL CONTROL BOTH HOUSES KENTUCKY LEGISLATURE. (By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.) Frankfort, Ky., Jan. 1.?All doubt as to the ability of Goehel Democrats to organize both houses of the L:gislature was dispelled by the attendance In the Democratic caucus to-night. Senator Goebil was nom.na ed for president pro . tern, of the Senate, and the entire Goe bel slate went through. In the House | caucus nil of the fifty-eight Democrats answered to roll-call and participated. In the S nate four Dem crats remained out. They were Senators Alexander, Hays, GUIesple and Roberts. Senator Hill was sick and 'absent, but he Is not clascsd 'with the dissenters. In the Senate caucus Senator Har? old created a sensation by 'making an alleged expose of tho antl-Goebel lead? ers, declaring -.hat he had been ap? proached by J. IT. Whallen, of Louis? ville, and paid $1,500 to remain out of the caucus. The money, he said, had been placed In a box with the Louis? ville Trust Compapy, the key to which he passed up to Senator Goebel, who was presiding over tho caucus, ending his speech by declaring that he had entered ^nto the deal for the purpose of exposing Whallen, and, further, that there wan not money enough In the world to make him disloyal to his par? ty and his State. Attorneys for Goebel and other con? testing Democratic candidates for State ollices to-day served notices upon the Repuhlican contcsteos to take deposi? tions to bo used as evidence In the pending contest cases and naming their witnesses. The Republicans decided to-night to hold a conferrnce to-morrow and nomi? nate n straight Republican slate of can? didates. Th? antPTTochcl?leaders say" .the large attendance nt the Demo? cratic caucuses to-night does not indi? cate anything as to tho Gubernatorial contest of the Scnntorshlp, as in the Senate the Goehel men and nnti-Goebel men entered into a deal regarding divi? sion of the offices In that branch. South Trimble, of Franklin county, was nominated for Speaker of the House on the thirteenth ballot. BOOKER WASHINGTON. OPPOSES THE EMIGRATION SCHEMES OF BISHOP TURNER. (By Telegraph to Vlrglninn-PUot.) Macon, Ga., Jan. 1.?Booker T. Wash? ington spoke on emancipation here to? day, opposing the emigration schemes of Bishop Turner, lie says the negro problem must be solved by the best element of the negro race, with the nld of the best element of the whites, "the North does not contain all the good white people, nor are they any better friends to the negro than can be found in the South," he said, "for every negro that Is sent to Liberia, a ntNrro baby is born In the cotton belt, bo that scheme Is a failure. As we came to this country at the urgent solicitation and expense of the white man. we would be ungrateful to run away and leave, him now, and we are not going to do lt. I was asked the other day in New York what the ne gio can do to get his rights. I an? swered: 'Make himself useful.' His citizenship will be recognized nnd val? ued in proportion ns he Is worthy. In? dustrial education is the key to the situation. The negro must keep pace with progressive civilization. Old Sam and his poor mule ':an-no longer com? pete with the white man who culti? vates corn by riding under an umbrella on a cultivator that does the work of four men; nor can tho black woman at the wash tub long compete with the electric washing machines. The negtv must have education and thrift. They must know how to npply their educa? tion. We have enouglt ministers and professional -men for the present. We need to teach the masses how to get out of their shiftlessness amVantlquat | ed ways." A large number of white people were 1 In his audience. . THE CENTURY IS NOT ENDED The Views of M. Flammarion, the French Astronomer, WHEN CENTURY ENDS The Writor Ueelnrea Tlint itll Clirom> loclcal Sclonllnla Asrco in finding Iii? I>itiv?> of llio I V? t-nlll'lll lluu (Irrdal Mlilnlglil uf Dcceiubor 31, 1901 Dlnctifolou Itecura ut llix i io-o or i:>icii i'crioii. The New York Herald's European edition publishes the following: It would appear that Germany is to celebrate the end of the nineteenth cen utry and tho arrival of the twentieth. A proclamation announces to-night that the government will light largo bon tires in the public squares at midnight, and at Hie same, moment cannon will thunder from the surrounding for? tresses, while military bands perform around the bonfires in farewell to tho departing century and welcome to the now born one. The German theory is that the twen? tieth century begins to-morrow. Every hundred years, toward the end of each century, this question of the date of the change of century Is dis? cussed. I have before me documents of 1799, 1G99 and 1599, which pose the problem and turn It over and over. DISCUSSION REPEATS ITSELF. Again, a hundred years hence, In the year of grace 1990?which, by the way, will be favored by a very line eclipse of the sun, total in tho neighborhood of Paris on August ,11, at twenty-eight minutes past 10 o'clock in the morning ?our great-grandchildren will put the samo question. Again, in the fin de sieclc newspapers of the period there will still be distinguished minds to re? peat the centuries old confusion. Progress is slow In the human race. A hundred years ago the discussion was very keen, and was oven reflected on the stage. In 1800 there was played at a little theatre in the Boulevard du Temple a piece entitled "En Quel Slecle Vivons Nous, Bon Dieu?" which had some little success?a title which would again be an actualite next year. In what times are we living? Certainly not in those of the age of reason. VICTOR HUGO'S BELIEF. Moreover, the discussions of the last century have not convinced everybody. For example, Victor Hugo was born on i February 2G.1S02. At that date the cen? tury was thirteen months, twenty-five days and a few hours old. I do not think that any one ever says of a child of that age that It is two years old. Vet the immortal poet, speaking of his birth at Besnncon, wrote, as every one knows: Co siccle avalt deux ans; Rome rem placnit Sparte; Doja Napoleon percalt sous Bonaparte, Et du premier consul: deja par malnt endroit Le front de l'Empereur brisalt le mas? que eiroit. In B?lte of what Is called poetical license, Victor Hugo would not have written ithese words unless he had thought that the nineteenth century began in 1L;00. POET'S MODE OF RECKONING. Poets, perhaps, reckon otherwise than astronomers. Did not M. De Hcredia, of the French Academy, say recently. In October, 1S9G, in his greeting to the Emperor Nicholas j in connection with the Pont Alexandre. ?which will be opened during the exhi bition of 1900: Et qunnd l'iiube du sieclc a venlr aura lui Paris, en un transport universe!, de Joie, Ouveira flerement la trlomphale voie Au couple tromphal qu'il acclnme aujourndhul. Franclsque Sarccy also called the year 1900 "Taube du siecle." Well, no tho dawn of the twentieth century will not yet have shone in.1900 Although we hear the exhibition of 1900 spoken of every moment as the in? auguration of the twentieth century, it Is the end?the twilight?of the nine? teenth centuy. It ought to be called not the begin? ning, or the dawn, of the twentieth; It is the eve of the century of to-mor? row. The dawn does not begin until after midnight. \ DIS^CUSSIONS OF THE PAST. I have before me several works of the year 1G99. First, a dissertation on the beginning of the next century, to ascertain which of the two years, 1700 or 1701, Is the first of the century. Second, a critical letter to the author of the dissertation. Third, a fresh dissertation on the next century, In which it is shown that the year 1700 is the first of the century. Fourth, "The authors' quarrel on the beginning of the next century decided." These four little books were printed in Paris in the year 1G99. They con? sist of endless discussions with argu? ments drawn from the Bible, from tho fathers of the church, from the Chris? tian dogma, from Noah's deluge, from the Institution of jubilees by the Pope? the interminable gossip of advocates, which confuses the question to such un extent that it Is impossible to make anything of it. In spite of the subtle distinctions drawn between ordinal car? dinal numbers. EVEN GEOMETRY DRAGGED IN. The authors have even taken the trouble to insert geometrical figures to show how the years should be sepa? rated and counted. ? ; Dissertations of the samo kind are met with In 1509. Even the Pope, who was mixed up in them, did not settle the question, but' left It to the astronomers, who, more? over, have never varied any more than has arithmetic- Yet this eternal ques? tion is simple enough. A tlo;:en is coin posed of twelve unities, and No. 12 forms a part of the dozen. A hundred Is composed of a hundred' unities, and No. 100 forms a part of tho hundred. ., Now there was no year 0. In the Christian era ihe first twelve months are called the first year, or! the year 1. When Christ came Into the world no one suspected the importance of his coming, nor the place which the relig? ion that he was to found would take In the political history of nations. The year of his birth passed unpercelved by the Romans as by the Hebrews. Even the first century of Christian? ity, and the second, third, fourth and fifth had no place in the calendar. PROPOSED P.Y DIONYSIUS THE LlTTfLE. ? , It was only in the year 532 that the Christinn era was proposed by a monk of the Roman Church, born In Scythla. named Dionysius, who. on account of his short statue wns nicknamed Dion? ysius the Little or Dionysius ExlgUUS. It was ho who constituted the Chris? tian era. That. n? has been seen, was only in the sixth century. He suppos? ed that Christ was born wit December 23, in the year of Home 763, and the year 751 of the foundation of Rome be cacne the Tust of the Christian era. This first year was not, therefore, even in the idea of Dionysius, that of the birth of Christ. Its beginning was J seven days posterior to his birth. FIXED BY HEROD'S DEATH. The monk Dionysius made in his his? torical researches a mistake of four j years, which can easily be verified, ns | the date of tho death of Herod is ac? curately known. Christ was born in the year of Rome 743, 'not in 753, and died at the age of thirty-seven, not thirty-three; and the whole Christian era Is four years too young. P.ut It would eertnirly be Incon? venient to change It, although this mis- i take has been known for some ccntu- I lies. It Is already referred to In the! dissertations mentioned, whose Chris-j Map ern. hna becn.kept_as_lt_was_pro^ posed by Dyonlsius the Little. It Is j tsufTlcient If people are agreed. It is clearly a matter of convention. THERE WAS NO YEAR 0. Hut whatever date be~adopted for the beginning of the Christian era, there was no year 0. Therefore the first year Is tho year 1. Tho tenth year Is 10, and the hun? dredth year of the first century Is the year 100. Put In this form, the problem docs not leave a shadow of doubt In the minds of the reader. Nothing In the world could be simpler. When the French revolution created a new calendar It acted In the same way. Tt did not think of a year 0. It called Its first year tho year 1. What appears to deci-lvc certain minds, probably superficial, at least us far ns chronology Is concerned; Is ihe change in the two first figures of the renlrry? the fljruvos 1790 to 1S.W, 1S03 to 1000. e:c in these '00 years ihero is c\ chnncto from 17 to IS and from Is to 10. This is true, but there is arothcr difference than that which makes the change from No. 0 to No. 10 and from No. 9ft to No. 100?ihat is to ray. to the completion of a <V end .? or century. In the decimal system a decade goes from 1 to 10. a century from 1 to 100. VARIATIONS IN DATE. There have also been variations in the dntt of the beginning i f th t y ar.wh ch has been placed some Inn s .->t January 1 and somcilm s .it December 2u. which was more logical from the Christian point of view, for the Circumcision Is evidently merely an Incident. Pome times It has b en 11 iced nt h ? concep? tion of Christ, otherwise the Annunci? ation, logically fixed by the Church :,t nine months from December 2">; siimo-i times at E >st r, th - f st'fval of the Rcs urreetion anil Of spring. On the other hand, the year \v.:s shortened by ten days in !dv2 to bring tho calendar into agreement with as? tronomy, but all this does not prevent i tbe last iliv iWfi fisnVp l...j.,o- M... I of the nineteenth century. CANNOT ALTAR FACTS. It may be seen by reading the papers that there are still dissenters in Paris, in the provinces anil abroad. These simply complain that the first year is called the year 1, instead of the year 0, but it was thu3 that the calen? dar was drawn up. Dionysius the Little did not put the figure 1 after, but during the first I year, and the first year was called the year 1. It Is. therefore, on December 31, 1000, at midnight, precisely, that the century will end, and fall in Us turn Into an abyss of the past to make room for the new century. FLAMMARION.
