A WASHING TO BOTH.
"When The Times, through its news col
umns, first called nttontion to the charges
made against "Warrant Clerk Washburn, vl the
polloe court, that gentleman indignantly
denied them and vehemently pronounced them
falsB. Mfc. "Washburn even vent so far as to
claim that he -wanted to be Investigated and
would welcome any inquiry into his official
Sir. Washburn has been investigated. He
may not feel as well-pleased with, himself as
he did before Judge Miller mado the inquiry,
bat It haB undoubtedly taught him a salutary
lesson. It has made Mr. Washburn under
stand that he has certain duties to perform,
and that Judee Miller intends to demand their
proper performance, and, moreover, that
while the warrant clerk of the police court
may be a very big man in bis own opinion,
he Is still required to keep within certain
In this connection It Is proper to call atten
tion to another official of the court, who,
Lke his friend and feJkw laborer, has man
aged to appear before the public in an unfor
tunate light since the police scandals first
became publie property. We refer to Special
Assistant District Attorney Pack. This gon
tleman has shown that ha possesses few of
the qualifications for the Important office ho
holds. Instead of being Judicial, dignified,
temperate, courteous in both language aud
manner, Mr. Pugh has shown himself a parti
san, with little regard either for his own dig
nity or that of the court, and careless both in
epeech and demeanor.
There may be vocations excellently well
suited for Mr. Pugh's brilliant attainments,
but as prosecuting officer in the polloe court
he seems sadly out of place.
YEfcTEEDAY'S PENNSYLVANIA EDITION
OF TEE CONGRESSIONAL EECOED.
The Congressional Heoord of yesterday
printed ninety-Bix pages of the tariff speech
of Senator Quay, of Pennsylvania, and seven
pages of poetical campaign effusions, whleh
had been edited and arranged by Represen
tative Brosiub, of the same State. As a mat
ter of course the quantity of the staid and
statesmanlike journal was somewhat more
numerous than usual, but the quality of the
mental lodder spread temptingly out over
its pages gladdened the weary way of the
constant subscriber as he wheeled his copy
home in a borrowed wheelbarrow.
ThejoyJul day when the woolen mill at
Squeehawken-on-the-Susquehana had its
belting repaired would be lost to the records
cf the nation had not Senator Quay discov
ered the lost statistical Iambi bt and ohased
it into the folds of the Record, together with
ninety-and-Bine other little ewe factlets. As
to Mr. Brosius, ho has turned on a new poetic
dawn of tbirty-two-eandle-power dimensions.
Time was when the world was satisfied with
'Curfew shall not ring to-night," but 3ir.
Erosius has given us other and higher
standards, and the fellows whose oyos turn to
heaven in fine frenry rolling will have to pat
tern after the majestic swing and stately
meter of those Teutonic stanzas beginning:
Town Ave. A we marched an cheered,
Vas "four years wore for Krover,'
Der prase pand playc, hip, hip, hurrah!
We'll turn dte gauntry ober.
It is hard to turn fro the historic and
poetic review of yesterday's Pennsylvania edi
tion of the Congressional Record and dwM, in
a few Hues of type, on the utilitarian possibf ti
tles in olved. Has it occurred to Messrs Quay
and Brosius that they might flood the Key
stone State with this excellent campaign ma
terial contained in the Record at the nominal
cost of employing a clerk to impress numerous
square penalty envelopes with a franking
ctamp? Of course not. Buch minor considera
tions never entered thtlr thoughts, and It
could only have been by the rarest chance
that Mr. Quay's speeeh, commenced June 16,
and Mr Brosius1 speech, of August 13, occu
pied the same binding berth.
One more cold monetary remark on tho
episode. The Tm6 has it from reliable
sources that the paper factories and printing
ink works of the country don't care what
tariff is put on. or taken off their product so
long as the Senate grants the Hon. Matthew
Quny leave to print his observations when
the Senate had under consideration the bill
(H. IL 4S64) to reduce taxation, to provide
revenue for tho government, and for other
THE EU6LNEES MEN'S PAEADE.
Not the least feature of the coming oon
clave of Entente of Pythias will bo the busi
ness men's parade to take place nest Wed
nesday afternoon. The list of Arms who have
signified their intention to participate is al
ready very lar;;a,and ltshould be immediately
completed by the co-operation of every largo
business interest In the city.
The Pythian parade will take place on
(Tuesday and will probably reach late into the
evening. For that reason the committees
have decided on tho following day for the
business men's parade and the illumination.
These two features are undertaken without
expense to the general committee, although
they will constitute Washington's principal
recognition of the visiting Knights.
The Pythian hosts will march up and down
our streets and drill in our parks, to the end
that this city may see the strength and sys
tem of their order. It is a sort of reciprocity,
then, that has prompted the business men's
parade, in order that the Knights may know
the strength and extent of Washington's
ousincss life. Floats, Tehicles, banners, and
Sevices of all sorts will oe used to index tho
vitality and aggressiveness of onr business
lien, all of whom should arrango for some
ort of representation in the march.
The citizens of Washington nave In this
parade a rare opportunity to destroy the
lomewhat popular notion thnt oar city is
merely a ''residence town." It is an oppor
tunity that should not be neglected, and the
committee hopes for a line as long as the dl&
tonce between the Capitol and tho Potomac.

Tho Honorablo Marriott BrOslus, of Penn

esque characters In tho House in hla poetio
and literary offusions, has a collection of cam
paign songs in yesterday's Congressional Rec
ord thnt will undoubtedly result in au enor
mous demand for tho Jssuo as a campaign
Tha speech purports to have been delivered
on August 18, but ns a nlfittef of faot It wiw
published under a gluidral leave to print, and
eo this Brosian symposium has not yet been
given to tho public. Tho speoch is on tho
tariff, and the arcumcut placed In small capi
tals at the bond of tho speech is Fletcher's apt
saying "Let me wrlto the ballads of a nation,
and I enro not who makes their laws."
In mounting his unreined Pegasus, Mr.
BrosluB says: "1 shall not set before our un
rogon trnto brethren thuir sins of omission
anil commission iu tho scarlet livery of th,lIr
real turpitude, but I shall let tho'inntter be
established by wituesses of well-approved
elmractor fortendcrnoss andf mercy. I shall
summons the muses, who each in hor own
peculiar Hold, yet all with uniform consent
and true noetic ardor, have volunteered to
transmit tho manifold delinquencies which
shall engage their pens to cominc generations
on wings of immortal song."
Then tho Honorable Marriott sets clown to
tho task or showinir, from a collection of at
least a score of humorous poems, rhymes, ond
ballads that tho Democratic party is not quite
ns popular with the people us It was in 1892.
Altogether, tho boat is the following:
THE SUOAll-CUnED COSOllESS.
Tone "Th Old Oaken Bucket"
How dear to our hearts Is our Democratic Con
cress; As hopeless inaction presents It to vlow;
Tho bill of poor llbon, tho duop-tangled tariff,
And every mad pledge that thir lunacy know;
Tho widespread deproesion, tho mills that closed
Tho rocV of freo silver wlioro great Grovor foil;
They've busted our country, no uso to deny It,
And, darn the old puny, It's busted as wolL
This G. Cleveland's Congress,
This Queen Lilly Congress,
This wild free-tradn Congress
We all love so wolL
Their moss-covered pleduos we no longer trens
uro, For often at noon, irhen out hunting a Job,
We find that instead of tho corn thoy had prom
ised. They've given us nothing, not even a cob.
IIow ardent we've cussed 'em with lips over
flowing With sulphurous blessings &3 great swear
Tho emblems ol hunger, free trade and free
Aro jounding In sorrow the worklncman's
This bank-breaking Congress,
This mlll-closlug Congress,
This starvation Congress
Wo all love so t ell.
How sweet from their eloquent llns to rcceivo It,
'Cursed tariff protection no longer uphold."
We listened and oted our dinner palls empty,
Tho fnctorles silent, the furnaces cold;
Aad now far removod lrom our lost situations
Tho tear of regret doih Intrusively swelL
We yearn for Hepubllcan administration,,
And sigh for the Cougrcsa that served us bo
This Fifty-third Congress,
This Democratic Congress,
This sngcr-uur'ed CongroBB
We wish was In welL
In striking oontrast to this romarkable pro
duction of Mr. Brosius is u 96 pago speech of
Senator Quay, of the most technical kind and
with thirty or lorty elaborato tables of statis
tics. Therb will probablj' be a very large de
mand for copies of this number of the Record
byothers than tho friends of Mr. Brosius' for
it is but natural to suppose that the Pennsyl--vnnln
manufocturers will want to see how
their compilations, really prepured for Mr.
Quay's speeeh, look in print. They may
want to distribute somo of these Records os
tensibly for Quay's speech but really for Mr.
Brosius' humorous collection. Altogether
tho issue makes the best campaign document
that has been prepared for somo time, and
the fact that Quny and Brosius aro both
Pennsylvanlans makes it looks a little as
though the monopolizing of this Record wns
a cooked-up schemo, and that it is to be used
largely among their Pennsylvania constitu
ents. News from the Texns Congressional conven
tion received yestorday was to the effect thnt
Mr. Paschal has been " defeated by his wool
growing community for voting for freo wool:
Cockroll is four and one-half votos short oi
tho two-thirds vote necessary in that State,
and Mr. Kilgoro's convention has not yet re
ported any results.
REV. MR. TABOR'S TROUBLES.
His Wife Is Said to Hnvo .Mnde Up Her
Mind Not to Return to
Rev. Church Tabor, pastor of the Methodist
Episcopal Churches at Langdon and Brook
land, near Washington, an account of whose
poculiur domestic troubles was published ex
clusively in Tnn Tisies of Tuesday, still re
mains in the parsonage at Langdon, his resig
nation as pastor being still in abeyance
Mr. Tabor came to the city yesterday and
called at ho house No. 1220 H street north
west, where his wife and her mother aro
stopping, but did not se Mrs. Tabor as she
was absent from homo at tho time.
Mr. Tabor brought with him a considerable
quantity of carpet, which he left for the wife,
but this will, it is understood, bo sent back
to-day by Mrs. Tabor. Acting under the
ndWce of her relatives and a few femnle
friends, Mrs. TnbOr, who is Mr. Tabor's
second wife, will accept of nothing that was
the property of tho first Mrs. Tabor.
Mrs. Tabor is so averse to seeing a nows-
Eiper mnu thut the most persistent efforts to
ave a talk with hor have proved unavailing,
but a lady who is nn intimate friend stated
that Mrs. Tabor will never livo with Mr. Tabor
Tho lady alsointimated that Mrs. Tabor
whs induced byRov. Dr. L. B. Wilson to sep
arate from her husband, and this was another
reason for her adopting this course.
Friends of Mr. Tabor sny that ono of the
principal causes of tho separation was that
there was a little too much mothr-ln-aw nt
Mr. Tnbor's,house. That lady is said to.havo
the Income of an estato valued at about
650,000, which wns considerably more than
w the salary of Mr. Tabor, and It was, it is
said, tho frequent habit of the mothur-m-law
to advert to this fact.
It is understood that Mr. Tabor has been
tenderod a very lucrativo position with ono
of tho largest publishing houses in the
country. Ho would, it Is thought, have
accepted the place some time ago but for his
willingness to livo in this vicinity on account
of his wife and his lovo for tho work of the
active ministry. He is a graduate of tho
University of Vermont, at Montpelier, while
Mrs. Tabor is also a Kraduute of the Mont
pelier Seminary for Young Ladles.
Calvary Baptist Church was filled by a
largo and select assemblage last night
to witness tho marriage of Miss LizzJo
Alverta Dnnner, of this city, and Mr.

Jtov. Dr. Greene. The beit man was Mr.
Preston Roller, tho ushers Mr. Marion Ep
pley and Mr. Arthur Crown. The bride was
gowned in a beautiful costume of white
silk and Valenciennes lace and carried
a bouquet of bridal roses. The maid
of honor, Mis3 Addle Lnrcombe,
wore a dress of white silk and carried
n bunch of sweet peas, wh:lo Miss Clara Eos
afy, tho bridesmaid and sister of the groom,
was dressed in white silk and lavender, car
rying La Franco roses. Tho wedding party
left at once for Saratoga, and will spend a

and both found guilty. Harrington was lined
$250 or, in default, sixty days in the work

keeper, Was lined $50 or thirty days in de
fault also in tho workhouse. Both went

police court official had mislaid the papers in

for tho government hud been in attendance
two days and the case had not been called,
Wasliburn urged that it again go over untl-to-day,
as the papers wero not nt hand. Mr.
Pugh demurred, and Mr. Washburn yielded.

Whiter L. Hillary in the dock, ou the charge
of being drunk. Ho hud been released ou his
personal bonds ou Tuesday, and for a similar
offence, and ns ho was about to rcceivo his
sentence a well-dressed man raised his hand
nnd addressing Judge. Taylor, said, "Your
Honor, this man is my brother and we have it
good business. When sober no ono could be

no ono oould do worse. Ho then abuses our
customers, and treats us all badly. I am will

promise you not to drink any more for six
months, but if ho will not do that I shfcll havo
to let him go to prison." Walter promised
with alacrity, and then Judge Taylor made
tho romark above quoted. The brother paid
tho lino, and at Judgo Taylor'asuggostion tho
two men went before a civil magistrate, where
Walter swore off.
Encouraging Health Reports Tho health
offico reports or tho city for the post week
re very encouraging. Indicating n steady de
crease in the death rate, which, for two weekB,
has been below the annual average. This Is
decidedly a good showing for this season of
tho year, when sickness is usually very preva
lent, nnd, a8 tho mortality of tho iufautllo dis
eases decreases with the advent of cool nights,
this very gratifying condition of health iq
very likely to continue. There was a decrenio
of threo in tho number of fatal cases from
typhoid fever and au Increase of two in those
from diphtheria. Tho other contagious and
infoetlous diseases aro so fur In abeyance as
to cause no further anxiety. Ab tho season
wears on and the time approaches when tho
more, dangerous diseases, especially typhoid
fever and diphther'a, reach their maximum
intensity, it Is a matter of tho utmost moment
that n perfect condition of sanitation of
premises be maintained and all approaches to
these diseases strietly guarded.

Adcidont3 Likely to Occur Resident1' of
Georgetown nre entering n vigorous protest
against a practice that prevails on tho George
town and Tennalleytowu Railroad. Parties
having business In the vioinily of Thirty-second
and O streets, it is said, aro Witnesses al
most dally of bair-brcadth 03capcs of pas
sengers who attempt to change from the elec
tric railroad to the Metropolitan line. Before
reaching O street a pascnger may signal that
bo wishes to change ears. Just before the
eleotric car reaches Dunbarton avenue it
erosses tho Metropolitan trucks and id com
pelled to materially reduce its speed, some
times almost coming to a full stop. The pas
senger, supposiug the car is stopping to per
mit him to get off, prepares to alight, but just
about this time, the car having crossed the
tracks, tho motorinan pulls out at full speed,
and the passenger is fortunnto if he does not
receive an ugly fall. The remedy suggested
is for tho eleotric car to stop before reaching
O street, nnd there permitting those who de
sire to do so to make tho change of cars.
A gentleman said last ovoning to a Times re
porter that a serious accident is likely to
occur at nnytimo under existing arrange
ments, and he supposed it woufd require the
death of somo ono to effect a change.

there, tho bright uniforms of the Hyattsville
Drum Corps, who attended in a body, the
pretty costumes of the young ladles, upon a
black ground of varl-colored booths, with Chi

tho memory of every beholder.
Tho sales at tho various booths wero some
thing wonderful to behold, and tho most
astonishing prices were asked and given,
offered and taken, and nearly everything
from tho proverbial pin to an elephant were
at tho purchaser's disposition.
The dancing pavilion, under the auspices
of tho l'oung Men's Catholic Club, was a
bright and constant scene of moving grace
and beauty, and the "Midway Plaisance,"
under tho management of the Sun

of the alumnne booth again played hostesses
to tho Georgetown Cycle Club, and great was

enthusiasm for the two champion bowlers,
Mr. Charles B. Althoff and Mr. John Trapp,
wero playing off a tie for first place, each
with a score of 300 out of a possible 800.
Finally when it becamo known that nearly
510,000 had been cleared during tho existence
of the fair, everyono'3 cup was full, and vis
ions arose in each eye of that fine new Gor
zaga College which is to be built, and to the
