Kvcn hoforo tho Italian imbroglio mid tho Ituto Incident, thu fact thnt wo woro ongaged in n diplomatic Mrugglo with (irciit Britain, in which lny v?nr ns n potentiality, wns urged in behalf of the proposition that our naval arma ment should bo Increased. lint there were plenty of easy-going souls who rid iculed (lio idea that Uncle Kani and John Hull wcro ever llkoly to do more in tho way of strife thnn bandy terms of cousinly disparagement. Tho more or less serious developments of the New Orleans episode, however, vor Hied the judgment of those who main tained that not alone the probable, and the poHSiblc were to bo feared in this con nection; but that tho unexpected was, If anything, still more worthy of considera tion in estimating the chances of a foreign Mar, Porthctimcbcitig, optimistic Chau vinism lost prestige, its chief mouthpiece. i'x-Kcnntor Inc. li.f, and sometime indc fatlpnblo source of opinion, maintaining ucli an able and distinguished silence as to attract the attention ot tiic country, mid help along the steadily growing be lief in the generous expenditure of money In building up the Navy. Since then tho Itnta case, from whoso complications there is no telling what results may spring, has still further illustrated the soundness of the pro-naval position. Should tho little dilllcultirs In which the country is now involved blow over without serious results, wc shall no doubt iipain hear the voice of tho fatuous sophist 'lift id up against the policy of Xavy build ing, although, fortunately, his following will not bo so large by many thousands jis it was before the development of tho episodes which have kept the State De partment busy for sonic time past. In this connection it would be well to consider o contingency which might ma terially change the aspect of a situation like that growing out of the New Orleam nffoir or, for that matter, an episode liko that of tholtota. In short, had Congress been in session when Rcm.ni mado his "bluff" tho possibility of war would have been increased many fold. For belter or for worse and for the latter, likely enough the occasion would iiavo been taken advantage of by warm-blooded pa triots in both branches of the National Legislature, and we should have heard Mich denunciations of Italy as would huvo j one far in themselves toward arousing the overwrought feelings of that country to an actual war pitch. It is not at all impiobablc that resolutions to "hold up tliehands" of tlioAilministration or some thing of that sort would have been passed and that tho "no uncertain sound" of their chocs on the other side of the ocean would have precipitated an armed con llict. Even tiie lute evangelist of peace, Jlr. I.NOAI.I.S, in the heat of the occasion might have indulged in an explosion fraught with patriotic wrath and the odor of "villainous saltpetre." Take It for all and all tho country, es pecially considering its defensive and of fensive strength, may congratulate itself that its foreign complications are not of a more serious nature than they are, and if it does not profit by its experience of this fipring we may conclude that thriftincss mid shrewdness in tho Yankee chrracter ure dying out. Ixti'sFahmeus' Ai.t.i:m: men are go ing to vote as they talk it will bo a pretty hard matter to tell beforehand how their ballots will be deposited. Pniii.ws as f.oon an example of olllcial perversity as has come to tho surface re cently is the action in connection witli the election of a site for tlio Lafayette Monu ment. Tho judicious rojoiccd when it was decided that it should not be so placed as to obstruct the view of the Mills Jack ron. Hut they were somewhat disap pointed when it was set up at the south east corner of the park, a position utterly out of keeping with icsthetic congnilty. Weary of protesting, however, the public yielded gracefully to tho situation, and proceeded to admire the statue without reference to its location and surroundings. Hut now the authorities have consum mated their seemingly childish determi nation to have their own way at all linwds. In other words, the space to the toitth of the Jackson statute, which was put in readiness to receive the Lafayette Monument before the action of Congress in the matter, lias been turned into a ilower bed and is filled with large plants which cut off the view of Jacksox nni lils charger from Pennsylvania avenue idmost as effectually as the Lafayette group would have done. It is true it may be claimed that the glimpses to be had of the statue from either side of the flower bed give phpianc'y to the scene. Never theless, when wo consider tlio reasons j;ien for thechango of plan with refer uico to tho Lafayette Monument, it Is not .asy to understand why the view was not left as unobstructed as it was originally. It is possible that Senator Hvrrc, who was to earnest In maintaining that tho bronzo Jackson should remain monarch of all he btirveyed, will find some difficulty in giving verbal expression to his feelings when nc.t lie comes to town and sees -what lias been done. Oj.ovkh Clf.vf.lvnd stated in his speech before tlio Cleveland Democracy at Hiifralp4hat "politics is something moro t ban adroit jugglery." The Prohibition jsts at least ought to agree with him. Tin: CiiAiiT.KSiox'and tho Esmeralda are In material respects about evenly matched. Tho slightly larger calibre of the Chilian's nig guns would constitute n j;rrut udvantage were the ships regular ironclads, buj as they arc only protected cruisers, a six-inch shell will do as much damage as an ciu'ht-inch if It happens to lilt, As ior the Lsmoralda's torpedoes, 1 bey n mount to nothing If the Charles ton's superior speed enables her to keep out of range, ami that is what is ex pected. Harring a chance shot from tho ifrmcraldn disabling the Charleston's machinery, the latter should be able to thrash and sink or capture the Chilian in very short while. Horguns are better hi id her olllcors and men much more ttliclenl. Nobody seems to be in much doubt as to tho result of a collision, though there is always the possibility of that chance shot. A projectile hurled from an eight or ten-inch modern gun has largo capacitied of harm, and must not bo regarded lightly. Tun hay hah not UKF.N tho best posjiblo for the, JDumhlano Club races. For wcaks tho weather lias been brilliantly clear, and everything was perfectly propitious, hut the first Dumhlano day opened up raw, with southeast winds, threatening rain, and an unkindly touch was laid upon the XtsMvity of Ihp occasion.

The art exhibition at tho Cosmos Club which lias attracted considerable atten tion among the guild and laymen lovers closed yesterday. Every day it was open found a throng of admiring visitors. They lingered long over tho striking little works in water colors, somcof which wcro done by artists wiioso names are well known in the art world. The Critic was most agreeably entertained bv a littlo series of sketches, such as appeal directly to tlio newspaper man's taste, because, while not only very clever, tlioy arc of nrnctieal usein tliesedovs of illustrated Journalism. Tho works aro by Charles Bradford Hudson, a young ICast Wash ingtoninn, and consist of a few graceful pen and ink sketches. Two of them nre of martial scenes, ono of n heavy skir mish line advancing under tire and the other of a column of troops on the march, a kind of work in which tho great French painter, Mcissonier, famously excelled, notably in his "1S07" and "he Kegiment qui passe.'' Nevertheless Mr. Hudson's work evinces a remarkable deftness of pen-handling with a lldellty to very ani mated life which arrests the eye at once and holds its pleasantly. The other ef forts of the young artist arc fanciful de signs such as aro used on mugazino covers and frontispieces and not unfreiiiently ornament topical newspaper sketches. As Mr. Hudson hns already illustrated for a number of well-known newspapers and magazines, ho 'will likely havo all ho can do. Thcraisno(iuc3ti0n of liis exceptional merits. lt is surprising how many Washington young men spend their Sundays in fish ing instead of going to church, and how frequently they como home without even a single fish to show for their day's work. Some don't relish being jested upon their poor fishing qualities while others w'ell replace luck with lucre and buy fish, or go home in a round-about way in order to avoid their friends. "Just now when fishing is the rage," said n Central Market lisli vender yester day, "it is almost Impossible for us to fill the orders that wo have from amatour lishermen. 1 recall an instance last Mon day morning when two well-known news paper men, who consider themselves very ily manipulators of the rod and reel, scoured every stall in the market without being able to purchase asmglofresli water llsii. They knew thnt it would bo suicidal for them to show up at their old haunts or even at home without specimens of the finny. As a last resort they hud mc fill their baskets up with herring carefully wrapped up in grass. "They smell liko fish anyhow, nnd we will fool the boys sure," remarked one of the sportsmen. "I heard a few days afterwards that the 'fool' was on the other side, for it cost tho two fishermen SIO n piece before thev reached home, after which tho veil is drawn." Deputy United Stales Marshal Maurice Joyce, who, besides being a well-known athlete, is quite a poultry fancier, tells the followiug story on himself; "1 started out last week in quest of n setting hen, hut alter hunting diligently all around in my neighborhood was una ble to find ono. 1 wns over near tlio Aqueduct Uridgo ono night just about dusk when I spotted an old Virginia farmer coming to market with a load of chickens.

I managed to reach home safely, nowevcr, anu ueposucu my newiy-pur-chased fowl on a setting of eggs that cost me $i. She seemed to take kindly to tho nest tho first night, but she was up with tho sun the next morning and I was un oblo to keep her on thoso eggs.

Sho should havo been taken ns sho nl ways took herself, namely, ns an Immense fake. Sho used to tell mo Hint she dis liked anybody who was fool enough to believe her. Her theory was that Tin: .on!.i was a f-onT or nnfr: muski'm. iu which sho found herself, and proposed to bo the boss freak, ilow well sho has succeeded may lie Inferred from tlio fact that tho llcry old woman could not even die without being seriously suspected .of putting up a job or joke on tlio people.

Tako tills as a sample of the whole, n huge joke on the part of tlio woman, later organized by little knaves to make money by gambling on tho credulity of the public.

SOMi: TACTS. lllavatsky wasnever in Thibet. Tho story that she was is n deliberately concojtn'd fiction. Sho never had anything to do with nnv Hindoo sdents or so-called seers. Her shrine at Adijor, through which she professed lo receive communications from Mnhotmns, was a trick cabinet with slid ing panels worked just as any spiritual istic medium would work her frauds. Diagrams of tlio cabinet hnvo been pub lished by Dr. Itichard Hodgson, Lh. D., of the Loudon Society for Psychical Re search. Tlio exposure was informally made by George Patterson, editor of tlio Christian Colli ye Jlatazuic in Madras, India, This was immediately followed by a com plete exposure by Madame Coulomb and her husband, two disgusted cx-confeder-atcs of Ulavatsky, who had woi;Ki:n Tin: thick cuiinet for iicr and constructed a rag dummy of tlieMahatma which used to bo exhibited in a dim religious light tor tho edification of tho faithful. The Coulomb exposure was followed up by tlio voluminous re port of tho investigating committee sent to India for that purpose by the London society above mentioned.

Subsequently in this country tlio staunch and fearless Colonel John C. llundy of Chicago, who has personally known tho women lo, these many years, published the complete nccount of the lake as later worked iu this country by a llttlo gang of scurvy knaves in New York City, who tnke what moncv can he made oil of American idiots. Colonel liundy's truthful statements were partly made upon documentary evidence given to him by myself. But probably the most com plete, concise and truthful account of the great hoax is one which I found myself able to furnish to Mr. Charles A.Dana, and which was published in the New York .S'.m of July :0, 1S0O. This proved THE llEVril-JlLOW TO HMVATSKYISV, and somo of tho friends of the unhappy woman say that she never recovered from the blow, and that her death has ensued in consequence. It certainly reduced her professed adherents to a mere handful of dupes, the two or three knavish manipu lators of whom have since been particu larly industrious iu attempting to rcintlate a pricked bubble.

ROYAL BLUE. A Wnslilngtonliin ltiully Injured y n htono-ThvowIiiB 3Ilscrinut. Tho Royal Blue train which left Wash ington at 11:55 o'clock yesterday morning was stoned by somo miscreants just after passing the Relay House, and nearly caused the death of a resident of this city. Tho train was plunging along at the rate of forty-live miles an hour, when there was a gieat crash of glass in the ladies' car and a huge stone weighing three pounds came flying through tlio window. The stone struck Mr. Edson, of this city, who was sitting on the seat directly opposite tho window, almost full in the face cutting it badly. The living class fell in showers upon and fearfully bruised him about the head, face and hands. Editor Keiber, of the Frederick Examlntr, who was in tlio scat in the rear of Mr. Edson, was badly cut about the face and hands by tho flying glass. Several of the ladies faintol and for a while general consternation reigned. When tho train reached Baltimore Mr. Edson had his injuries dressed nnd pro ceeded on his way, although very weak from tho loss of blood. Tho company's detectives nro investigating tho case. The dastardly habit of stoning passenger trains passing through the outskirts has resulted in several serious accidents. A number of boys in this city hove been ar rested for the offense and fined, but tho railroad officials complain that the prac tice has by no means been broken up. A SAD CASE.

A Past Kxprrss Trnln 1'InRRetl liTlnii) to I'rotent n Wreck, New Yoiik, Mov II. A dastardly at tempt was mado on Monday night lo wreck tho Pacific express on tho West Shoro Road, a littlo delay in starting tlio train saving tho passengers from what would probably havo been on Instant ond terrible denth. On account of tlio delay lo the Pacific express tlio Haverstraw local pulled out ahead of It and hail reached n point a llttlo beyond Little Ferry when an explosion occurred. Tlio trnln consisted of nn engine and two cars and tlio only damage indicted was tlio breaking of tho car windows. Tho train was stopped and the train hands went back nnd found about three feet of track torn completely out nndn hole blown out of tho earth beneath It. It was n wonder that tho local passed over it safely. The Pacific express, which was close behind, wns flagged and switched rrround the torn track and then proceeded on iis way. It is supposed that tho explosion was caused by train wreckers who placed a dynamito cartridge on tho track, and who hoped to throw the train into tlio cut just ahead and rob it. The express is nlways loaded with money and valuables for tho West, and on Mondav night it had about S7,000 on board. Had" tlio express not been delayed it would surely havo been thrown into the cut, as all of the long lino of cars would not have passed as safely over the torn out track as tho shorter local did. Detectives arc working on the case. There has been an attempt on thepartof tho railroad otlicials to hush up the matter, and yesterday they denied the truth of tho story to a reporter.

A large majority of juvenile South Washington adjourns every evening to the improvements on tiiesitc of tho old river flats to toss ball nnd otherwiso cavoot. This is as it should be. Improve ments havo progressed so rapidly in tlie southwest during tlie last few years that tho boys nro being surely and swiftly frozen out in tlie matter of play grounds, whereon they can expand their young muscles, eject some of the effeto otraos phereof the school-room from their young lungs nnd utilize a portion of that joyous animation and superabtmdent vitality, which is one of the most precious heir looms of youth. Seventeen to two at tho Washington Baseball Park yesterday was oven too much for the equanimity of tho South west, However, two out of three from King Kcl's combination is not such a bad showing up, and if tlio boys should go ono better, that is to say, bo beaten by seventeen to one noxt time, thero is still reason for hope, as King Kel will return once moro to wield the ashen sceptro before tho season closes. As K street from Virginia avenue to Seventh street has been rendered scrvic nbleas well as ornamental by one of tho handsomest of asphalt pavements. It is to be hoped thnt the Commissioners will continue their creditable work nnd as phalt E from Seventh to Water streets. This portion of E street, thanks to the enterprise of Mcsj. King, Emmons, Stephenson. Pn'hiian, Parker nnd others, bids fsir t' become one among tho finest "i Couth Washington's residential streets and is in every respect worthy of the Com missioners' consideration. While thero mnv be a difference in the matter of political opinion between cer tain sections of Seventh and Ninth streets ns to tlio rclalivo merits of Blniue and Cleveland, there was none as to the ad visability of placing Badge for second money at Monte Carlo yesterday.
