If (lie lw lies with the rijrbt ill tlio cnjc Wo liiiiitdriiend upon tlio Court to discover tlie fact without much help from tlio AlUirney-OenerulN olllco ns nt present ninnned. This ia scarcely just to the Attorney f ncnil's (Ullco. Mr. Mai-iiy has mndo (ho best cao that was possible for the (Sowrnmciit in this controversy nud has, presumably, acted In full hnrinony with Attorncy-d'encral Mii.l.mt. who has been jircvenU'd by Illness from prcpnrlntr tlio brief in perion. Tlio trouble U that the .iovcrninent has not much of n case on the face of the papers. 'J'lio nicasuro which (ho Loulniiiim Lottery Company challenges before the Suircmo Court can he defended only on the ground of moral expediency. I'lidoubledly it Is, as an abstract proposition, an invasion of tlio liberty of the press and an Infringement of personal rights. Theoretically, If Con Kress may deny the use of the malls to newspapers containing lottery advertise ments, it may with equal nroprlcty tako similar action in the case of liquor ad vertisements, playing-card advertisements, hucket-shop advertisements or any other "which the party in the majority at the moment may choose to regard as im moral and pernicious. There is, indeed, no end to the mischief and oppression to which such a principle, once established, may not lead. It is but natural, there fore, that the Constitution should lepu diatc it in a general way, and that it fhould bo destitute of support in prece dent. Wo can readily 3Ce that the At-turney-deneral's olllce may havo found It impossible to defend tlie law on any but moial, nnd, to a certain extent, senti mental grounds. As we see it, the ques tion is not whether the Government can (hid any defense in laws already ojcistolit, but whether the Supicnie Couit will, in iwv of the gravity of (ho case, originato a law to lit this particular emergency. The Mrictures on Jlr. M.ynY strike us as unjust. lie has no caso and'he virtually confesses as much. What his brief means Is (lint tlio Supreme Court should make a ruse for him. Hi:. Htjaisu to the Republican party: "Your candidate 1 cannot be." Tun ltr.iTiiurvN party to Mr. Ui.aixi:: "J'oyou mean it?" Timnr has Nr.vnit iiees any reason to suppose that Mr. Hi.aink was .scheming for (lie nomination in 1S92. Only one man could havo brought him out in the capac ity of an aspirant and that man is the President, himself. As the head of the 1'midont's ofllcial family, as a conspicu ous and potent factor in Mr. Hamiiio.v'h administration, Mr. Ulaink could notdo Yjte his opportunities to personal ends without the gravest impropriety, if not actual treachery. The idea that ho would m) devote them could llnd room only In the minds of unthinking or ignorant peo ple. Mr. lUimtso: is entitled to all the rcdit that may1 attach to his Administra tion. If there be anything in it to excite the admiration or to appeal to the respect and confidence of the country, it goes to (he I'resident's account and (o no one else's. Nothing could bo morestupid than to regard the President and Mr. UtAixnas ft pair of sordid and shifty wire-pullers trying to gain some petty personal advan tage over one another by unscrupulous employment of an opportunity. Ono must be next door to a fool to imagine (liat Mr. HAmsiso.v is weak enough or Mr. Di.aixi: unprincipled cnouzh to make ueh a situation possible. Tho simple truth of the matter is that Mr. H.uwison In the head and front of his Administra tion, nnd that Mr. llr.Aixi:, perfectly con fccious of the fact, is loyally and unself ishly supporting him. Nobody who knows anything of the tvrp men and who ia nt all removed from hopeless idiocy could seriously think othcrwiso for a moment. i in Xo, so; Mmotaii IIeni.v Blur. Too muchec chin-chin.

Tho great Captain died six years ago and New York has over iiife been importuning the country to furnish the money wherewith to adorn JtUcrsido Park with the structure which the nt lirst promised to erect. Finding (he rountry unwilling to respond to this impudent proposition, New York now de clares her intention of fulfilling tho pledges so noisily made in 18S3, and has actually gone to tho oxtent of selecting a plan for the monument and breaking ground with a ill spade prepared for tho occasion. Of course this will be regarded asan overture of the utmost vigor end sig iiiiicancc,aud will serve ns justification in full for another six years of inaction and for fresh appeals to the great and gullible American public, A M'Miir.u op AMuinouB New York patriots anxiously await the melting of Movernor Senator Hill's hyphen. A skw has rnonvciNo agent for throw ing lamer masses of high explosives In aerial torpedo form lias) been offered to (his Government by Mr. . I. W, Giuvoos, formerly in tho Vnlted States naval ser vice, but now in Loudon. His plan is to convert all of I'ncle Sam's smooth-boro camion Into dynamite projectors by means of his new gas. What that is, ho tays, is his secret, and ho will not divulge, it; but ho says It is not oxpenslvo. Gas seldom Is.

Tub LIiitic would modestly suggest that the superintendents of asylums for the care of the Insane might make their meet ings a little more interesting to thegencral public If, Instead of discussing such sub frcls as "Xranmndo Hysteria, from Itali !)

Last night thoro was n groat batuiuct given by tho American Protective League at Madison Square Gnrdcn, Now York. It was a very distinguished gathering. Mr. Cornelius, N. Hliss iircslded. On his right hand was Yicc-Prosldcnt Morion, on his left Major William Mclvlnlcy.

Clinton, Karquhnr, Shcndnn, Hanson and Walker. Tho following special affords the best description of tlio banquet, omitting tlie speeches, when it is recollected that the object ox the big feed was to glorify the McKinlcy bill and all Us acts, and that nothing not of American production or make had a place oil the board: Nv.w Yoiik, April HO. Chateau Mnr gaux, at SI n bottle, was superseded at Madison Square Garden to-night by Zinfandcl nt "slcen" cents a barrel. It wns tho long-advcrtlscd "Purely Ameri can" dinner of tho Protective Tariff League. Tlio table linen was American, die crockery was American, the wines in tensely American, the cigars flagrantly American everything, in fact, was American, except Tfn-stovc-plato Ncld ringhaus, tlio Missouri ex-Congressman. Not often is one permitted to seo fiOO worhingincn so prosperous that thoy are ablo to stand tuahead forn dinner for no other purpose than to express tho courage of their convictions. Put they wcro to-night, with their working broad cloth on their backs nnd their throats choked by huge lumps of patriotism. Tho dinner would havo cost less but for the McKinlcy tnriir. Assuming that tlio tables wcro manufactured for tho occa sion, about 1,000 feet of spruce boards were used, and on this the tax is: Sawed boards, St per 1,000 feet, 51. Vivo hun dred chairs were required. Estimating their valuo at ?l each, tho additional co3t iinnnsrd bv the MnKlnW Turin' hill would be: Furniture. 35 nor cent.. 178. L - L::r.r - have restricted the effect of the Wower wbt!jln blankets wCro stretched over Jnuiper's Ka-'''hcir weight was about two i and tho tax Is: Illankets. 33J cfjoung niamd and 10 per cent., 5S8.1L'. ThctA"(fft,i?f)f the tabic linen was excel lent. Had tho Protective Tariff League purchased it it would havo been com pelled to pay this tax: Linen, manufac tured, TiO per cent., 100. Napkins were used by (he workingmen who dined, and on these tho tax is: Linen, manufactured, fiO per cent., &S-I. In reality, of course, the League did not purchaso thcarticlc3 mentioned above. cosr of ei:tti.-(i Titn taum;. Now w e nro ready to set the table. Tako theciockery first: Tho C00 men who rev eled in the twelve-course dinner Used 0,000 plates. They were cheap plates, costing about $2 per doon, and the tariff duty is: Five hundred dozen plates, 21 per cent., 1250. Each' man had a cup and saucer some had two, but we will leave them out of tlio calculation. Tho cups and saucers were of better quality, worth, perhaps, 5-1 par dozen. Their contribution toward the bullion was: l'ortv-two dozen cups and saucers, (X) per cent., S750. incre was goou steel in tnotame Knives, and eaeli man used or could have nscd, in preference to his lingers, a set foraeach course, or fiOO dozen in all. They paid: 500 dozen knives and forks, 2 dozen and 3.1 per cent., S1.350. The water tuid wine glasses were plain. There were nine around each plate, worth on an average about $1 per dozen. Hence, 370 dozen glasses, (X) per cent., $225. W HAT THE CQimSFS COST. The courses In quick succession, with their respective duties, were: Salmon, i cent per pound. Tenderloin of beef, 2 cents per pound. Chicken, Maryland style, 5 cents per pound. Asparagus, 2 per cent. Snipe on toast, no tax except ou cereals in toast and butter thereon. Frozen pudding, materials unknown and duties of consequently not attain able. Candies, SO per cent. Cheese, G per cent, per pound. The subject of "wines'1 and cordials is approached with some trepidation, but no connoissqur will fail to rccognizo Ihq ex cellence and variety of tlie supply when the following list Is put under Ids nose: b'lrst dozen, lieislinp; second dozen, Sherry; third dozen, .iufaudel; fourth dozen, Kcllpse; fifth dozen, Urbana gold seal; sixth dozen, Cook's Imperial; sev-. enth dozen, Jlurgundy; eighth dozen, liquors. runE coxecticvt fillers. Think of New York Ilenublicims strug gling with pure New York wrappers ou shrouding pure Connecticut fillers.. Thoy did bravely though, and hero again de serve honor for their martyrdom. Had they smoked good cigars two each on an . average they would have paid this por tion of the billion: 2,000 cigars, $1.50 psr pound nnd 25 per cent., $110. WHAT Jl'KISI.F.V'S CLOTHES COST.

Tho last Symphony concert of the sea son was given lost night at tho Academy of Music and attracted, a largo and highly appreciative audience, including n num ber of uotaolo aud piomincnt people in ofllcial mid social life. Tho programnio given was a superb one, mid was as fol lows: llcrlioz, overture, "llcnvcnuto Cellini," on. 23.

" Tlio orchestra, under Mr. Arthur Nlkisch.ivas in lino condition for tlio evening's work, and every member was fully up to the mark, Ilcrlio.'s overture gave the audience on opportunity of enjoying that groat con ductor aim composer's wonderful orches tration. This composition is ono of his best, and is full of the dehcato harmonies and rich instrumentation which charac terizes Ilerlioz's works. Tlie concerto by Tschalkowsky, played by Mrs. Helen Hopeklrk, a pianist of great force, skill nnd lino technique, was one of the most original and beautiful numbers of the programme. It has all of tho pe culiarities of Ilusslan music, broad har mony, rugged melodies in minor keys, with here nnd there delightful pastoral coloring. The twq selections from Benjamin Ood ard wcro specially chauning in a certain oriental sensuousness and 2lrllutlte lan guor. "In the Hammock" is nu artistic hit of musical inscription, tlio rythm and movement in waltz time being at once descriptive and full of the spirit of orien tinlism. Mr. Anton Hekking achieved the triumph of tho evening as a soloist in his marvellously skillful and beautiful ren dering of soli for violoncello, and wns re peatedly called before tho curtain, play ing for an encore Schumann's exquisite "'1 raumcrci." The great featutc of tho evening was of course tho performance of Beethoven's masterniece, "The Kroica" symphony, which ' was played in a way that was quite beyond criticism and worthy of tho work. Muilno Ititml nt Homo Concert nt the Academy (Lincoln Hall). The Marine Band has made a tour of the country, with a sweeping victory, and it is very doubtful if the people of Wash ington have heretofore realized that tho finest band hand on earth wna playing for them so often. At every concert the people who listened were charmed with the sweetness of the music aud astonished at the wonderful execution nnd effects at tained. Tlie newspaper critics have been almost unanimous in declaring its play ing the finest overheard, nnd in giving tho talented director, Mr. John Philip Sousa, enormous praise for his modesty, his ability and forthe great results he has ac complished as tho director of the hand of tho nation. He has made a complcto con- 3uest of every city visited, and stands to ay a great favorite vith the American people. Mile. Marie Decea, who nccompanied the band as the prima donna soprano, has also met with ovations everywhere, and tho beauties of her singing havo been fullv appreciated by the critical audiences who have listened to the remarkable execution of which blie is capable. The notices published by tho newspa pers, in every instance running from half to one and a half columns, would fill a largo volume. They are all illled with praise for the band and its conductor.

It is full of pathos, and has n sym pathetic human interest that cannot but take a powerful hold on the attention aud feelings of the audience. Tho company which will support Miss Gray is ono of tho best that has ever been with her, and tho scenery and stage furnishincs will be complete and elegant. The costumes which Miss Gray wears nro very line, and altogether tho performance promises many unusual merits.

I doubt whether since I saw you you havo done a good whole day's work In, say, oncdav. You do not very much dislike to work, and still you do not work much, merely because It docs not seem to you that you could get much for It. This habit of uso lefsly wasting timo is tho whole diniculty. and is vastly important to you, and still more so lo your children, that you should break this habit. It is more important to them, becauso they havo longer to live, and can keep out of an idle habit beforo they arc in it easier than they cau get out nfter they nro in.

But If I should now clear you out, noxt year you will be just as deep in as ever. You say you would almost pivo your place in heaven for $70 or J?0.
