With others, ho was watching some workmen engaged In tho intorostitig tnsk of mak ing !evor connections, Young (Ikoiiuk on this occasion happened to be tho mem ber of tho crowd there la generally ono r more such In gatherings of thnt kind who wns wrought tip to a high pitch of uneasiness over what he considered tho workmen's lack of skill. Accordingly, ho jumped Into tho breach and proceeded to nt things right, only to ho carried away n few minutes later overcome by sewer pis, from the effects of which, fortunately, lie wns relieved at n hospital, Young Uimwik'h enso would scarcely bo worth thisnotico were It not for tho fact that it points a moral. There nre any number of men in this wido world, in vari ous relations of life, who have nn Insane propensity for interfering on the slightest pretext with affairs not conducted accord ing to their own particular plans and s-pecillcalions, for tho reason that they have failed to grasp tho truth of tho homely adage that "there is more than one way of skinning a cat." A horso can not fall down in tho street, you cannot dig n holo in the ground in public, an Iron Mife cannot be raked to a second-story window, without the appearance of one or more of those kindly disposed Indi viduals overladen with ablo suggestions nnd haunted by tho fear that the world will slip a cog if some of those suggestions are not at onco put into operation, it .eems to be impossible for this class of men to consider what the great mass of their fellows finally realize in all hu mility, that fallen horses will still bo put on their feet, holes dug ly the ground with neatness and dispatch, and safes lifted without accident into second story windows when they aro no longer present to help matters along by the con tribution of big chunks of gratuitous counsel. It may be added that In politics, as well lis in other liclds of human thought and action, the man is an especial nuisance, if not worse, who habitually views tilings from the narrow platform of self or of a ehu-s and attempts to light tho path of progress through a fog of egotism. His method of "skinning a cat" may bo thoroughly scientific or it may bo clumsy and impracticable. Hut in any event, lie is not unlikely to retard whatever work may be in hand by insisting thnt his method is tho only true one. This indi vidual will be present in force in tho Fifty-second Congress. Ho lias already pointed out a number of things apper taining to tho National Clovcriiment which lie thinks will continue to go wrong until they are readjusted in accordance with Lis own nicely constructed but narrow views. Doubtless ho will roll up his sleeves and go to work on Uncle Sam's tewer connections with an heroic self confidence that will command some de gree of admiration, if not entire approval, on tho part of the ou-looker. Neverthe less, his fnto will probably bo thnt of young UEOitori Row.npo.v, and pretty soon wc shall llud him laid up for repairs in the political hospital. A MiovoKiNO xriHAXCE, and one which hould have been dono away with long jigo, is tlio sweeping of streets, and espec ially tho down-town streets, at an hour in the evening when they arc thronged. Frequently, when the streets are alive with people on pleasure bent and attired in accordance with that laudable purpose, the street-sweepers, with the ponderous nonchalance of which only a big, healthy, elf-reliant street-sweeper is capable, iling clouds of lllthy dust through tho air to j-ettle in tho eyes, ears, nostrils and necks nnd upon the more or less spick-and-span clothing of the multitude. And not only is this the case, hut tho rank, suffocating odor that arises is utterly unwholesome, nnd frequently drive sensitivo persons into a convenient doorway or up a cross street for at least temporary relief. In fact, the street-sweepers do the very thing they are expected to prevent tho wind from doing, and they do it in n thoroughly diabolical way that u Western cyclone would have some trouble in discounting. The proper time - for street-sweeping is between tho hours of midnight and dawn, and the pro per authorities should lay down a rule to that effect ami see that it is observed. Indeed, it i3 not easy to see why tho mak ing of such a nuisance should not be for bidden off-hand by the police depart ment. Certainly there are hundreds of individuals lined every year for the main tenance of nuisances not one-tenth as ob jectionable, not to mention those who jibate supdry nuisances upon being duly warned by the police. The public aro thankful, it is true, that tho watchful eye mid vigilant nostrils of authority are ever mi the alert to ferret out nnd summarily dispose of tho malodorous slop barrel. Hut why n hundrcd-slop-barrel nulsanco should be overlooked or undcrsmclled, as the caso may be, the public fail to under- Maud. i The SrAsisu Govehnmhn't has been in formed that tho Administration will favor n modification of thoMcKlnlcy tariff law by tho Kifty.second Congress with a view to the encouragement of tho importation of Havana tobacco into the United States. If this kind of thing continues Mr, Mo Kiki.ky may begin to wonder what ho fathered the bill for. National hanks may come nud go, but the Domestic Hank of the Old Slocking will continue to hold its own.

"Did you ever bring yourself to reflect about suicide," nsked nnantifjiialcd doctor of surgery tin wo came ambling down Capitol Hill on' ono of those really cheer ful now enrctte. "You novor did? Well, you should nnd you will (lml it an Interesting sub ject to think about. Probably, n u news paper man, you know that the word sul ciilo Is derived from two l.ntln words, 'sul.' meaning one's self, and 'credere,' to slay or kill. Hluckstono define It 'ns nn act of designedly destroying one's llfo committed by ix person of years of discretion nnd of sound mind;' but that great lawyer is clearly wrong In both of ills premises. Hulcluca nowadays aro not confined to pcoplo or years of discretion and 1 believe it Is the custom of careless talkers always todcclaro that the victim wns of unsound mind. "That soldier out at the Marino liar racks the other day why ho understood suicide its n science," remarked the old surgeon, reflectively, "killed himself in stantly ns quick as n Kodak snap or n stroke of electricity. His life was thrown down in Iho thousandth part of u second.

"Its n very sensitivo organ, as von know, and nature has thoughtfully on cased it in walls of hard bone. Supposo pcoplo wore their brain on their sleeves, ns sonic people aro popularly supposed to do their hearts? "My observation is," continued tho doctor, "that mole suicides generally use firearms, whilo women prefer to drug themselves. This may ho accounted for by a woman's known autipathy to blood and to vanity. "No handsomo woman, or ugly either, would enro for her family or friends to gnze on her dead features distorted and swollen and blackened by gunpowder. Not she. In nil my practice I have never known a woman to kill herself cither by shooting or bv stabbing, and 1 have been called to view" the poor remains of several unfortunaters. I believe it was Sidney who wrote "Vanity poeseth many who are deslrlom to know the certainty of things to come 1 "That is what I meant to say In the be ginning, remarked the' doctor, as he readied for the bell pull and dismounted." Tho great majority of people, according to Agent Mintcr Preston Key of tlio Humane Society, know absolutely noth ing about watering horses. "A horso should never be given water from a bucket," said tho agent to a Ciimc llKconn man this morning. "Ho can't get his nose and half of his head down in the water, and that's just what a working horse, especially in warm weather, wants. Ho doesn't caro for tho water so much, but he likes to draw it up into his nostrils and then blow it outairaln. "An illustration of this was given me when 1 first becamo connected with the society. Thevwerc then working on tlio extension of North Capitol street, and it was summer. Scores ot' teams were en gaged m the work, and the dirt was cut so line that when it once got into the air it was not hcavv enough to come down, but just iloated there. Probably a dozen horses a day were beconiiiigdisnbled. The contractors were at their wit's ends and didn't know how to remedy the evil. The hdrscs were made to drink from buckets half filled with water. I saw that tho trouble lay right there, and I told the con tractors to put un a barrel, tan the water main and give the horses a chance to bo their own physicians. They followed my ndvice. The horses would souse their noses down into Iho water almost to their eves and hold their breath. Then they would blow and the bubbles would rise, muddy-looking bubbles. Hy this means they kept tlio tubes of the heads clean, and from that day not a single horse was sent to the stables exhausted." Smith Fry's dog Fidgo can give many a man lessons in courtesy and lie did it tho other evening in a Fourteenth street car. Fidge can stay up with tho best of them, but when he takes a notion in his head to go homo and his master doesn't agree with him, he carries it out. And he doesn't walk, either, for tlio distance is not short nnd when Fidge starts homo he is rather tired. The other night Colonel Fry was tarrying with some ot tlio boys at the Press Club and Fidge became im patient, but tuouoionci wouldn't pay any attention to the efforts of tho dog to at tract his notice. Then Fidge left his master and stalked down tlio stairs to Fourteenth btreet, whero ho caught a car on tho move. There was but one seat vacant and l'idgo leaped nimbly into that and sat observing with attentive eyes tho ladies on the opposite side of the car. The conductor came along to collect the fares and Fidgo glanced up at him from the corner of his eye with an expression that seemed to say: "Say, young follow, I'm Smith Fry's dog, and I'm a privileged person on this line, see?" Tlio conductor passed on and Fidge again turned his attention to tho passen gers on the other side. The car stopped and a lady got on. Tliero wero two or three men comfortably seated, but they didn't sco the lady. Fidge is a gentleman, however, and he did. In an instant he was out of ills corner, his tail wagging. Tlio lady didn't sco him at llrst, but sho heard his quick sharp bark, and then saw tlio vacant seat. She took it and al most paralyzed the men in the car by saving; "iiianicyou." Then Fidgo walked out on the platform and stood with tho driver. He came to the door on tiptoe and, thrustini his head in in a suggestive sort of way as if there was more to follow, in quired "Isthisthcrinktum?" "How's that?" "Is this the rinktum sinktum sank luni, or some such place, where the editor lives, moves, and docs his lying?" "Yes, sir; this is the editorial room. Come in." "No; I guess I won't. I jes' wanted to see what n rinktum was like, that's all. Great Jehosrphat 1 ain't it dirty and don't it loom up with old papers ! And this is the rinktum ! Well, good day." And he departed the rinktum, A BIG BAND. tiuutoniiilii AVI11 Solid Her Hand to tlio World's Fair. Lieutenant George I.

AN EXPLANATION OP TIIK SCIENCE A LAYMAN MAY UNDEKSTANO. The New Science Not Altogether New, But Konnilcil Upon the Writings or (ho Ancients, of the Schools or Pvllingorns nml Pinto, tlio Vcdlc ami the Chaldean Teachings. It is moro than two years sinco Colonel Henry S. Olcolt, whom the death of Mine. HlavaUky places at tho head of the Then sophicnl movement, loft tho United States for tho Fust. In 1K75, when the society was formed in Now York by Mmc. Blnvatsky and the Colonel, not n dozen ndhcrants were to bo found, now tho membership exceeds 100,000, Tho Investi gation of tho unexplained laws of nature nnd tbcphychleal powers of man becamo Iho first object of tho Wostcrn members of tiie order. Mmc. Hlavalsky, however, was herself the centro of interest to all, nnd In the bediming Colonel Olcott was simply her pupil and representative in practical matters. After having aroused an Interest and founded a society sho and tlio Colonel sailed for India. Her book, "his Un veiled,'1 which appeared just previous to her departure, created a nfno days' wonder, but the character of Us contents and tho great size of tho work prevented It being read uy tne general puuiic. in iaai tno soclclv had grown to such proportions that the founders were invited to visit ICnglnnd whero t branch of tho society had been formed with A. P. Sinnctt, tlio author of "Tho Occult World," as presi dent. Mr. Sinnctt was editing an Eng lish paper published In Allahabad, when Mine. Hlavatsky and Colonel Olcott went there In 1870 to organize society- Vc rj,i.-rmsS M' "' Colonel llcnrv S. OUvtt. The recent announcement of the death in London of Mme. Hlavatsky seems nn opportune occasion for an outline sketch of somo of tlio teachings of thnt wisdom religion, to the exposition of which all the energies of her life were so unsellishlv de voted, writes Alex. W. Goodrich,. T. S.. in tho Philadelphia 7'iVi. The fundamental, principal and one broad platform of this system lies in the acknowledgment of tho brotherhood of humanity. From this it follows that all humanity and all nature, in their essence one homogeneous spiritual substance, are slowly progressing on the path of evolu tion, whoso tendency is always upward, from the mineral kingdom through tho vegetable and animal kingdoms into the human kingdom (for humanity is said to constitute so important an advance that it may bo classed by itsell), and that tho end has not been attained even here, but that evolution continues in the same direction, aud there comes a timo when man may attain through a pure life and spiritual growth to an existence entirely above anything wo can form a concep tinn of now, but which may bo called the godhood of humanity, and that nbovo tins condition arc nigner aim sun iiigucr ranks of spiritual beings, constituting the hierarchy of henven, tho angels and urch angels and all the powers thereof. Further, that this progression is under the guidance of one universal and un varying law. That all men who will may alikoattaln to this superior condition and in tho course of this growth find themselves endowed with vast powers over nature and the forces of nature if they succeed in proving themselves ab solutely pure and absolutely free from all taint of selfishness. The divine principle overshadowiug all men is said to manifest itself only in tho nature of law, a law that knows no varia blenessneither shadow of turning a law governed by nn intelligence which finite reason can never comprehend and which affects all creatures aliko from the least even unto the greatest; a law which is not subject to caprico or vengeance or any other human passion, but whoso In fraction surely leads to a discipline which will neither be postponed nor nullified by any special pleading. In its application to science It is known as tho law of cause and effect. The same law rules upon both planes tho material and tho spirit ual. In tho Indian religions it is called the law of Knrius (a Sanscrit word of various applications). Tho same truth is vari ously formulated m Christian ethics, as for instance, "with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you ngain," and "Ho who sows dragons' teeth, must reap tho whirlwind." And, secondly, if all humanity and all nature proceed from one sourco, it must follow tuat all forms of religion, however antagonistic on tlio surface, spring from tlio same root and lead to the samo result. Hence follows the desirability of n study of the Aryan Scriptures os formulated in the statement of tlio objects of tho Theo sophical. Society. To arrive at results having any real value, this study must bo pursued with puro motives that Is, with a mind unbiased by nre1udice3 or pre conceptions. European Sanscrit scholars aro few; and little aid can be expected from the Indian Pundits to tlioso who hnvo no sympathy with their forms of thought and who may both use and abuse them. Hut that this aid will lie craciouslv given to thoso seek ing only the truth and tho advancement of humanity is abundantly proved by the great work of tho society in India and Ceylon. No well-informed man wlio is familiar with tho history of civilization can fail to see in this revival of interest In these ancient religious writings a force destinod to have a powerful effect upon future generations, it revival for which the world stands largely indebted to Mme. Hlavatsky. This remarkable woman has nover claimed to formulate a doctrine of her own ond thrust It down men's throats. It has rather been her object to call at tention to some basic principles which appear in primitive Christianity a3 well us in Huddhism; wero taught in tlio ancient mysteries of Egypt, Greece and Home, in the schools or Pythagoras and Plato, by tho Qnostics, tho Nco Platonists CONSUMPTION in its early stages can bo cured by the prompt use of Ayers Cherry Pectoral It soothes the inflamed tissues! aids expectoration and hastens recovery.

We aro further taught that no Scripture, not oven die Vedas themselves, should be accepted as infallible. In these simple statements ore some mighty truths which, if they should per meate all Christendom, would alleviate much misery and bring relief to many souls now struggling with doubt nnd des pondency and materialism. If no further advnnco is niado during the present cen tury than the tendency to moro liberal views, which is perhaps not so apparent in this country, but which has certainly been accomplished in many parts of the world through tlio instrumentality of the Theosophtcal Society, at least thai step in advance is well worth having taken, Finally, Thcosophy Is In no sense the antagonist of tlio Christian or of nny other religion. It recognizes that all re ligions liavo alike becomo encrusted with tho barnacles of dogmatism and overlaid with n ritualism that has long sinco lost its meaning, both of which wero of small consequence in primitive times; but to thoso who dig deeply into those tilings tho hidden spirit will become anew llfo in deed n deep well of living water spring ing up into life everlasting. Tills excellent spirit of Christianity which leads men to become as little chil dren and to accept (iod's wisdom from any and every source, and to devote one's life, as did Jesus of Nazareth, to all hu manity, this Theosophy cannot antago nize, for it Is Thcosophy. It is hoped that its mission may yet be to synthesize all religions and to oppose with them tho common enemy of mankind tho spirit of cant, hypocrisy and intolerance. CRIMINAIj COUB.T. Tlio McClellniid Case. The lirst witness called yesterday by the Government in tho trial of Edward L. McClelland charged with manslaughter, was William T. Etos. He certified to hav ing seen McClelland shoot Denton and afterward heard four other reports, but could not swear positively whether the shots were directed at Denton. Ho weut out and notified Iho police and when thoy reached thero Denton was on the lloor in n dying condition. Tho witness said that Denton's wile was Mcintosh's daughter, but thnt thev had lived scperato for some time. On tlio evening of tho shooting Denton came into Mcintosh's shop and said to McClelland, "Seems tome you loaf urouiulheroagooddeal." "Wcll,thatismy business," was thcreply, "and Ido not care to havo ony words or trouble with you." Denton then approached McClelland with his arm in a threatening position, but do not think he struck him. The shooting immediately followed. Sergeant Darry of Iho Fourth precinct wa3 the llrst witness called when the Court opened this morning. Ho Went to Mcintosh's shop and saw Denton dead upon the lloor; also found a bullet hole in tlio wooden partition. Afterward saw McClelland at the station, where he was visited by a woman named Fannv Dlalr. The prisoner told tho witness tha"t he had thrown his revolver away in the Kinitnsonian grounds. Frank Mcintosh testified in substanco as follows: "McClelland used to drop into the shop as often as two or threo times a week, and occasionally saw his daughter, Mrs. Denton, there. The night of the shooting McClelland and I were seated by the stove. Denton camo in through tho store and said, 'You aro paying ad n lot of visits hero lately,' speaking to McClelland. 'I do not know as that is any of your busi ness,' answered McClelland. McClelland got up from his chair and stepped back, ' and Denton advanced toward him. 'Go way ahd let mo alone,' said McClelland, but Denton followed him. Then Mac pulled his revolver and shot. I heard four shots fired, but others say tliero were five. "After the shooting McClelland stated that ho would give himself up and did so. I went for a doctor and when I camo back there was a crowd about tho house aud Denton was dead." Christian; Sprosscr testified that Mc Clelland came to his shop, pushed open tho door and handed him a pistol with a request that he put it nway. "I havo dono Henry Denton," hosaid. Afterward wo went to Fanny Dlair's houso und from thero to tho station, where McClelland gave himself up. SlcClellnud Cnse. After several more witnesses wero ex amined an adjournment was taken until to-morrow at 10 o'clock. NOT LIABLE TO TAX. ltag-richeis Kot Classed ns Socond H nnd Denlers. Attorney Hazlcton this afternoon de livered an opinion as to whether under the provisions of tho hill imposing a license tax upon second-hand junk dealers, thoso persons who aro en gaged in gathering and collecting lor sale to others in push-carts or other like means, old iron, bones, rags, etc., are liable to (ax. The question camo up, It will be remembered, upon tlio petition of Mr. Weed, the attorney for Droderick Dros., who gave employment to a number of dealers, and whoso statement has al ready been printed in tho Cnmo-Hi:eonn. Theattorney decides that these smaller dealers nro not liable to tho lax. Tho law was evidently intended, ho says, to reach another class of dealers where tho law fulled to fix the amount of license tax, although designating the class of busiucss in tho body of tho law.

GOVERNMENT OF TIIE FUTUIIE. Professor Wnrd of tlio Smithsonian' Gives Ills Ylows. The True Commonwealth Club met Inst night at tho parlors of Dr. Dlaud, 1U!1 Tenth street northwest, and wero ad dressed by Professor Lester F. Ward of the Smithsonian Institution. Ills subject was "The Government of tho Future," which ho claimed would bo n business rather than a political enterprise. It will not so much protect people against foreign invasion, for that is obsolete, nor from the criminal classes, who are dying out, and in a short Urns wiU become extinct. Its chief function will bo thonrotoction of the producing classes against the schools of speculators. He held that the methods adopted by grain gamblers aro little better than high way robbery, and that In tho "future government" this would bo regarded a3 a criminal class of people. In the govern ment which ho contemplates railroads, telegraph, express and .other monopolies will lie run for tho benefit of the whole people, and not for private institutions or corporations. The Hon. John II. Oberlcy followed in a fifteen minute speech which was charac tcrized with eloquence as well as logic. His ideas are in lino with thoso of Profes sor Allen and ho spoke strongly in favor of thorough civil service reform. Tho club then adjourned to reconvene the second day of October.
