They have nilvunceil tho vnlite ot renl ostnto or, when they have not liecn nhlo to lulvnnce It, they hnvo l;rpt it from declining, hy nmlduoua and intelligent effort. They exploit the nt trnctions of the city nml its vicin ity hy lihcrnl ndvortisinis; they honutlfy property, both urban mid Mibitrtmn by judicious mid llbornl fxpendlture; they not only sell for one rlns nml buy for another, but their nc tivity mid their indomitable mid progre ssive enterprise constitute n guarantee th.it real estate In the .District will not bo suf fered to tleprociate, mid that the integrity of investments will bo maintained by every means within the reach of human ingenuity. It Is n common experience to hear 'real estate people" referred to in terms of disparagement. Those- who do so must be very forgetful or M'ry ignorant. These "real estate people" are the best friends and the most valu able allies of all who o n property here. Their restless energy, their unstinted ef forts, their progressive and shrewd op eration, all contribute powerfully to the common weal. And it one coum out know the obstacles they encounter, the Ingratitude the insincerity and the unfair ness with which their crvicta arc too often requited, he would regard them with even more respect and admiration than he is forced to feel upon the merely Mitperficial aspects of tho case. It is high time to stopthlssllly and un just criticism, (let into your dog cart or, barring; that, into a ear of some suburban railway and take a survey of tho intelli pent and substantial improvements that have been made in every direction by tbeso 'Teal estate people." It is their faith in the future of Washington that has prompted, and their money that has car ried out these benelicent enterprises. Tliey have built up the waste places and turned bleak hillsides and noxious sloughs into wholesome and beautiful landscapes. In improving their own they have im proved your property. In contributing o generously and so effectively to tho general scheme of development they have added to the value of your possessions and enhanced the beauty of tho city in which you live, they are entitled to your regard and gratitude.

Anticipation of the delights In store for them may well go far toward relieving the soggy te dium of cnnllict with caloric during tho summer months. And after they have listened to him, they will have to admit that the Mac.wmvs of tho press have not moistened their verbal brushes with colors ono whit too glowing in tho attempt to make the ex-Senator's personality live en tho canvas of current history. Hy study of his printed speeches and Ids contributions to various periodicals, they have already learned to appreciate the intellectual essence of his efforts; and -while they may not be a unit in yielding to bis dicta on things political and other wise, they will not sparo the acknowledg ment that his manner is masterly mid at tractive, his wit keen, and his sarcasm a most effective weapon. Hut when they come to see the man and hear his voice, they will begin to realize the truth, which ordinary speakers fail to illustrate, that the orator and the honeyed droppings of Ids tongueloso as much virtue through sep aration1 as do the perfume and the flower, the dewy breath of morn and the pulsing crimson of the sun-kissed hills. Ixm.i.s in print fills the brain with intellectual fragrance. I.noam.s in Senatorial repose or at the plow is a source of visual intox ication. Combine the two, gather the elo quence as it is emitted, fresh from a glowing personality bathed in Parnassian lew and the sense of mental and spiritual fullness becomes complete. The only question is as to whether I.n iiai.i.s will let himself out, and there can lie but little doubt that he will. For, like IIomok Conki.ino, whom ho resembles somewhat in his delivery, he is not only ready at all times with the word that shall securely rivet the thought with the greatest neatness and dispatch, but his local machinery Is always well-oiled and in running order and answers tho first motion of tho lever without any of the ralnfttl preliminary hesitation which is loo common even among orators of re nown. If, therefore, there be any truth in tha itatement that he will swing around tho lecture circle next season, a treat of surpassing luxury is in store for thoso who have learned to admire Imjali.s at long range without having heard mid teen him.

The United Mates is committed to that course in the mest solemn manner In which a nation can assuiuo a responsibility. We, ourselves, invoked tho judgment of (he eivilled world when wo procured the creation of tho Geneva tribunal in the Alabama affair, and, in accepting tho award there made against Ihiglautl in our favor, we pledged ourselves, by every con Hderation that nations regard as sacred, lo stand by tho principle Involved and to hold ourselves forever In readiness as its champion. This country cannot afford, rvt'ii were it base enough to ilosiro such a thing, to repudiate obligations so sol emnly Incurred. Foreigners, no mat ter whether they bo recognized bel ligerents or only irresponsible rebels, cannot bo permitted to lit nut or supply privateers or men-of-war in our ports. When they attempt to do so the must bo prevented by every force at our command. We have brought about the promulgation of this rulo of inter national action. Wo, above all other nations, aro bound to observe it in honor and good faith. And, so much being curtain, one need not bo a prophet or u clairvoyant to feel warranted in saying that the Government will do all its duty in this matter of tho Itata, no matter -n Juw tho cost or the consequonco may bo.

We hove before us, now, No. 1) of tho series. It is entitled, "Which Wins?" nml is tho Work of Mrs. Mnv II. Vonii ot Kansas ( Ity. Tho story is, as tho title page de clares, ono of social conditions. It treats of tho mortgage system of the West and, the author asserts", deals entirely with facts, most of which aro of her own personal knowlcdgo ami all of which arc absolutely au thentic. That tho author is in close and fcivent sympathy with the Farmers' Alliance is evident enough from tho cir cumstance that she has dedicated her book to that organization. Whether the public at largo will be inclined in the same direction depends upon tho extent to w liich the book is read, l-'or our part, wo find it extremely Interesting. Possessing all the elements of interest that are to be found iu a well-constructed narrative in which love and humor and pathos abound, it has, beside, tho additional at traction of a study of those social and economic conditions which enter into our daily lives and constitute ono of the most vivid and momentous problems of our national development.

At ('hamborlln's the other night a parly e.f distinguished rounders wero exchang ing gut-sip. Among other loplrs the talk touched upon Handy Moses 1'. Handy of the umbrageous whiskers and tho gaudy sido-lights. Everybody lovos Handy and wishes him well, audit was tho general opinion that tho l''air man agers had struck it rich when thev got him for their i'roniotor-In-Chicf. Many were tlio reminiscence brought out and the good things said apropos of Moes, and varloiisnlid lurid wero tho descriptions of his wonderful whiskers. Then somebody beiran to loll of Ktigeuo I Field, of his various tricks and iittlps and witticisms. There was it story about his astonishing watch. It seems ho went to tho trouble of procuring an enormous sil vcr watch, the sioof a rutabago turnip Somewhere within tlio vast Interior of this instrument, he had placed a contriv ance of such a nature that when ono turned tlio stem as though to wind it up it gave forth n loud and rasping noise like unto that of ten locusts sawing their re sounding legs at once. II was a startling mid an awful racket, calculated to snook n nervous person ond to Irrltato tho mo3t phlegmatic. Armed with this engine ot torture, l'ield used lo repair lo theatres where dreadful and hcartrcudcrlug plays wero in processor evolution, and then, at harrowing points, when the villian was unfolding his hellish plot, or tho virtuous maiden defying a ruthless persecutor, and everybody was hanging in suspense upon tho same, Kield would unsheathe his watch and turn tho crank with industry. He always broke up the tragedy. "Hut tho funniest thing Field overdid, ' said ono of the party, "wasthowav head dressed n letter to Jloso Handy. Ho look a white envelopo and drew on it tho back of a human head. Ho picked out a fow tufts of hair on top of it and then from tne chocks no drew a liairnt uowing ami luxuriant wnisurrs wntcii no ttnteu with his red pencil. Then he wrote under it simpiy " 'Pnu.APr.i.nm, " 'Puns. The letter went straight "That was all. to Handy." Vp in the row a party of newspaper cor respondents wero discussing tho game Of draw-poker tho other evening when a Western representative suggested that ho had examined the chemical composition of the game with n spectroscope and had found to average about as follows: Protoxide of nine high 3.-110 Nltrntoot two Jacks S.'.ijCI Sulphurate of kiugs up I.iit7 Cnrnnnct ot thiee bulls .'Hi Methvlateot sequence iViii lll-bortate of iliinh :m Hjpophosnhttcof iiuecn-full MS Subncetnto of fours its Carburet of tralght Hush 021 Silicate ot blulT, cyanide of bobtail and other foreign substance', a trace Total 1U.OJ0 "It will bo learned from tho above," sagely remarked the W. It., "that the quantity of straight Hush in an average hand is mighty small, and I would like for j on to show me the man who lias knowledge to the contrary." Not a soul disputed tho proposition and the unanimous verdict seemed to be that they had never heard of enough straight Hush together atone time to doni'ich damage. Finally an V. P. V. said that ho knew of one case, and only one that of a man who suffered a sudden attack of quadru ple jacks and who happened to fall against a bait gourd full of the carburet and subsequently wont homo in a barrel minus his clothes. Just beyond the lloundary and almost touching the beautiful little suburb of Lo Droit Park, is one of the most desolate and neglected spots in tho District. It is an old cemetery, from the graves of which the bodies have long since been removed, but tho mouments and tombstones are still left standing, Tho fence around the little cemetery has long since been used to kindle the fires of the uenlmis of the sur rounding commons, and tho whole place with its tottering headstones and yawn ing graves, is unpleasantly suggestive of resurrection day. Here a handsome slab of marble has fallen forward into the grave and tho inscription stares up into your face, telling Hint hero lies Michael O'Connor, n native of County Kerry. There in a clump of bushes almost hidden is a rude pile of granite memorials, as if each spirit before deporting had placed it there instead of carrying it with him to his new resting grave. A few of tho more pretentious monu ments, fortunate enough to be protected by rusty iron fences, have thus far es caped injury, except from the hands of time. They wero once triumphs of the local stone-cutter's art, but they aro so worn and defaced by tho wind and weather, that they aro scarcely recogtii. ablo as memorials of tho dead at all. Once this cemetery was one of the most beautiful, instead of the most neglected, of places. Tho graves wero grown over with myrtlo and violets, and handsome elms and drooping willows shaded its winding paths. They are gono now, and, in their stead, a grovo of sickly young trees have sprung up, and tho half-lllled graves are overrun with rank bushes and weeds. It is a rendezvous for the youth of tho neighborhood, who play af leap frog and hide and seek about tho vacant grounds, or, exercising their own inge nuity, scratch rude inscriptions on the backs of tho stones. Jlany of the original inscriptions arc still well preserved and, with exceptions, tho persons once buried there were natives of Ireland and the cemetery was called after Ireland's patron saint. Why these stones are still left there is unknown, hut there they will probably remain, a con stant reminder of the remembrance which wo bear tho departed, until some body carts them away and breaks them up for cobble stones. At nearly every one of tho polico sta tions in town there is a pet. These pets are forthomost part cats or dogs, and they get so accustomed to associating with policemen that they will have nothing to do with any one else. But tho life of these station-house nets is not verv lone. and not very happy either, for that mat ter. Inspector Swindells of tho detective olllce has been singularly unfortunate. He had the oldest cat, perhaps, in town. She had become a feature of the olllcoand antedated every other attache there. No one ever thought of death in connection with her, and nearly every policeman lit town who has a homo has ono of that feline's offspring as a household god. Hut some time ago her health began to fail and tier hair began to fall out so rapidly that she became quite bald. All sorts of remedies were tried, but they were of no avail, and ono day Jim, tho janitor, was teen to leave tho ofllco with u bag under his arm, He was afterward heard to re mark to an old crony of his outside: "1 Hung do bag 'round my head three times tin' den 1 lef her loose. Dat you kno', llrer Johnsing, hab never fall yit." Urcr Johnsing nodded acquicsconco, and tho cat has never been seen around headquarters since. Hut she left ono of her descendants to (ako her place, and the fato of this kitten was scarcely less terrible than that which befell Its mother. It escaped for two weeks the feet of policemen, detectives, reporters and casual visitors, and everyone began to hope that It would take the placo so long occupied by tho old lady. Hut ono day alarming symptoms ap peared. The kitten began tostvell! Kvcry thing that could bedoiie to suppress the swelling wns done, but It wouldn't be stopped. Kvery day some new medicine was tried but It did no good and gradually tho kitten took tho shape of a" toy bal loon. Polico suigcons wore consulted. They could do nothing and neither could j;r, vrtuiK, tlio sanitary uniccr. Tlio kit ten got so round that it could barely wobblo about, but one day It did wobble to tho front door of tlio olllce. Tho door was 0,1011 and out Into the street it wand ered.

While no formal nctlon on this subject was taken by tho American Medical Association at its ses sions In this city, tho question was talked over privately among tho'doctor.", and it was generally agreed that, unless America has a Minister at Home no.vt year the medical association which meets at Detroit will refuse to appoint delegates to represent us at the Italian Capitol. Dr. John H. Hamilton, 8urgcon-(ion-cral of tho Marino Hospital Service, when questioned on tho subject by n CitiTif Itrtrimi leportcr said; "Of courso if friendly relations between tlio two coun tries are not restored before tho medical association meets in May next, wo will not send any delegates lo Home." rrnrensur IIIlRnid's Death.

ISA"), and came to America lu loVi. In 1815 ho entered tV service of tlio United States Coast Survey, then directed by Alexander Dallas Hachc. His work lay directly iu tlio lino of his profession, In tho Improvements of meth ods, tho determination of weights nud measures, and the novel method of ascer taining the dlll'ercnccs of longitudo by tel egraph. His publications of these sub jects aro to be found chlelly in the Coast Survey reports. One of tlio most note worthy relates to tho telegraphic determi nation ui me uiiiereuces oi tuiigiiiiuu uu tween Greenwich, Paris nnd Washington. He was a delegate to tho International Jletric Commission in 1872, and a member of tho International lltireau of Weights and Measures, of which ho declined tho directorship. Ho was an original member of tho National Academy of Sciences and for some years Its homo secretary. After tho death of Mr. Patterson, in 1881, ho was appointed superintendent, and for a time tho tardy recognition seemed to give him new life. Put the political changes In 1SS1 that caused his removal resulted in it depression of spirits from which ho never rallied Departure of Mr. Stoddiuil Tor Mexico. John i. Stoddard, who has just finished his twelfth lecture season, proposes an entirely new dcpaituro in his plans for next year. He has become widely known as a traveler through Kurope. Ho now proposes to turn his attention to certain features of our own continent. Attracted by its far-extending and exceptionally in teresting history, bv its unique features of civilization and by tlio reports which have reached him as to the beauty of its scenery, Mr. Stoddard has decided to in clude ono or more lectures on Mexico in his repertoire for next season. As it Is his invariable rulo not to speak upon a coun try with which ho is not personally ac quainted, his managers, Messrs. Durditt and Xorth, have arranged for him. an ex cursion under unusually favorablo con ditions which will enable him to see this country to the best advantage. The party, consisting of Mr. Stoddard, Mr. Xorth and Mr. Hau, an eminent photographer, started from Chicago yesterday, having secured for the trip tho palatial I'ulliiiiu car "Coronet," in which Mine. Pernhaidt has lately been traveling. Fortified with letters of introduction to distinguished Mexicans, backed tip en thusiastically bv the American contingent in Mexico" and ilie railroad olllcials, who aro anxious that our people should know more of their adopted country, and with his invaluable experience as a traveler, it will readily be seen that Mr. Stoddard's natrons of next season arc in a way to bo informed about and entertained bj Mex ico, as only this princo of lecturers can do it.
