In the course of a few days tho office of

Is the British government moro democratic
:ban the government of the United Stated?
In theory, no; in practlco, yes. Analyzing
ihe two governments itwfil bo found that:
The House of Commons is equally as
epresentative as the House of JJopresenta
Svcs. The House of Lords has much less legisla
te power than the Senate.
The Quoen con veto nothing except a social
amotion, while tho President can put a tem
porary or permanent stoD to legislation.
The first andlastof these three propositions
contain no comparisons detrimental to the
government of tho United States. But in tho
locond is a serious reflection on our vaunted
What would have happened had tho House
sf Lords attempted to hold up a tariff bill sent
:o it with the approval of tho Commons? It
irould have meant nothing short of the im
mediate abolition of .that respectable body.
In fact the House of Lords has ceased to
iave any power at all except the exercise of
i suspensive veto, the right of which is rarely
atUteed because of tho determined opposi
tion it meets in the Commons. The Lords
originates nothing except money bills while
the Commons holds the nation's purse.
In foot, the government of England Is al
most entirely in the hands of the House of
Commons. Monarchy is dead except a9 a
Bocial function. It has not figured actively
In legislation since William III vetoed the
triennial act and William IV dismissed the
Whig ministry.
If England, nominally a limited monarchy
but in reality a democracy, can get along
without an upper house, why should not the
people of the United States, if they wish to
continue the Senate, at least form It by popu
lar choice, making it thereby a representative
foody .responsible directly to the people, and
yet preserving its possibly useful character as
a check to the House of Representatives.
Tho coroner's jury over the remains of
Mary Flaherty, who met her death at the
Pennsylvania Railroad crossing in Southeast
Washington, comes to the front with a most
remarkable verdict.
In the face of the testimony of the gate
keeper that it was impossible for him to
properly guard both sides of the gate, this in
telligent jury acquits the company from all
responsibility. Who then is to blame? It is
claimed that the aged lady was responsible
for her own death because she did not prop
erly heed the warning given hor.
But what warning was given her? None
but the closed gate, which makes pedestrians
wuit until each train, car and engine has
done, for a time, with that particular portion
of the people's ground. The coroner's jury
may deem the closed gate a sufficient warn
ing, hut in the face of the fact that people do
cross tho track when the gates are down,
the oiiizens of South Washington would pre
fer to have the railroad company spend an
other 75 cents a day to further guard the
crossing by placing there a man with eyes to
see and a voice to warn those who are not
capable of taking care of themselves.
Clearly then, tho coroner's jury in its haste
to acquit all animate and corporate bodies,
should lay violent hands on the gate and hold
it responsible for the fatality. Tho gate had
ao business to allow tho poor woman to
cross tho traoks. without voicing an extra
squeak and waving its long arms. Ob,
coroner's jury, wise in your day and genera
tion, lay it all on the gate. It cannot defend
Itself or injure you.
If there are any differences in the Demo
cratic Congressional campaign committee,
the fault is with the Senate members.
"President Cleveland and Chairman Wilson
have clearly laid out the lines within which the
campaign is to be fought and tho only lines
within which It can be fought with hope of suc
cess. A campaign of defense for the Senate
bill would assure Republican success, and yet
there are Democratic Senators who would
rather see their party fail than to hear tho
least aspersion cast on tho honorable body of
which they are members.
If the committeemen of the Congressional
campaign committee cannot agree, let the Sen
ate mambers clear out. The House commit
teemen will havo the satisfaction of knowing
that they are backed by the Prcsidont and by
tho party, and they can suffer the loss of
tholr distinguished'eonferees without serious
In refusing the District laborers pay on La
bor Day the Commissioners are undoubtedly
well fortified by the opinion of Mr. Thomas,
attorney for the District; and, In turn, that
gentleman Is undoubtedly well fortified by
tho law, or rather the absence of any law in
tho case.
But from a moral standpoint there is not
the shadow of a ground for such a ruling.
Departmental clerks who labor with their
pens are allowed their leaves of absence.
Why, then, not allow one day's leavo out of
SG6 to the laborer, who tolls at the bottom of
the ladder? If there is any distinction to be
drawn between the two classes of labor it
all in favor of the hand worker, lor ho only
asks one day, and his work is of a character
that needs occasional rest oven moro than
that performed In the departments.
Take the parallel cases of tho higher grades
of District employes. They are allowed their
leaves of absence. Why does this favor stop
at the point whoro hard manual labor begins?
Why? Because unskilled labor is unorgan
ized and cannot protect itself. It must needs
depend on what Its employers will eivo it and
consequently it gets nothing. It gets, in
other words, just what skilled labor would
get if trades unionism did not exist.
Now that pistols and burnt ofllglos are

The bill at the National Theater Inst night
was the rather ancient ''Ingomar, the Barba
rian," in which Mr. Robert Downing appears
to excellent advantage, as his magnificent
physique is amply displayed and his rather
forcible style of delivery comports excellently
with the requirement of the plot. The
reproduction of "Ingomar" by Mr.
Downing compares favorably with all
others with which tho AVa3hington
public has become familiar in the past. Miss
Eugenie Blair's Parthenia is one of the most
pleasing female creations on tho American
stage. Charm of face and figure combine to
render her personality especially suitable for
this part, and her accomplishments and tal
ents make her presentation of tno heroine of

by frequent applause.

Walker Arrives from Honolulu and Sker
rctt Comes from Asia.
Admiral Walker arrived yesterdry morning
from Honolulu, via San Francisco. Capt.
Bakor, who accompanied the admiral trom
tho Pacific, had an informal talk with ad
miral Bamsay, Acting Secretary of tho Navy,
and gavo a general outlino of events in the
Hawaiian Islands.
Admiral Walker later called on Admiral
Ramsay. It is expected that the Admiral will
make a report to tho Secretary concerning
Pearl harbor although it is stated at the Navy
Department that but little has been dono con
cerning tho harbor. Admiral Walker will
probably remain in Washington until Secre
tary Herbert returns, as he wishes to consult
him upon the management of the Naval
Academy before he takes charge. The sup
position is that Admiral Walker would as
sume command at the academy on Septem
ber 15, but it is possible that iu case Secretary
Herbert does not return that ho will not take
charge until later in tho month.

Acting Secretary Reynolds .Makes Four
Rulings Which Interest Attorneys.
Several thousand pension claims are affected
by four recent rulings of Acting Secretary of
tho Interior Reynolds, construing the act of
January 5, 1893, which provides for increase
of pension from $8 to $12 per month on ac
count of service in the Mexicun War. The
Acting Secretary holds that the increase
granted under that act does not commenco at
tho date of the act, but from the dafo of ap
proval of the increase claim in tho Pension
Bureau, and that tho increase does not apply
to the case of widows.
"The act," says Judge Reynolds, "does not
include those persons who composed Powell's
Battalion of Missouri Volunteers, who were
directed to be placed upon the pension roll,
subject to tho provisions of the act of January
29. 1887, pensioning the survivors of tho war
with Mexico." The department also holds
that tho feeof $25 claimed by attorneys.under
articles of agreement, cannot bo allowod, and
no fee in excess of $2 can be paid, as pro
vided in tho act of March 3, 1891, tho increase
being in tho nature of an allowance on ac
count of increase of the disability for which
the soldier is already pensioned.
Cardinal Gibbons "Warned Against Four
Pseudo-Priests from Cape Colony.
Baltimore, Aug. 31. Cardinal Gibbons has

"four or five gentlemen who callod themselves

But .Mother Superior Denies That Cornelia
Wain Died from Maltreatment,
New York, Aug. 81. A sensational story
was published to-day to the effect that a De
troit woman, well known for her acts of
charity, who wanted to join a sisterhood of
the Protestant Episcopal Church, was so se
verely punished at tho Community House on
her arrival that she died shortly atterward on
nor way home.
Miss Cornelia L. Wain, of Detroit, arrived
in tills city last month, with the intention of
joining the St. Joseph's Sisterhood, which has
its housoat No. 34 West Twonty-sccond street
She died a week ago at Niagara Falls. Ac
cording to tho story published, she was se
verely punished for a slight infraction of the
rules, "and was placed in n coll and halt
starved. Tho mother superior of tho sister
hood said to-day:
"I received a letter from Miss Wain saying
that she wanted to join our sisterhood nnd
sho would como on for a weok to see how
she liked tho life. I replied, saying the timo
wastOQ short, and thafsho must stay at least
two wks before sho could become a novice.
When sho arrived sho appeared in ill health.
She complained so much thnt I had several
extra dishes prepared for her from timo to
timo. Tho whole story, I believe, has been
gotten up by hor relatives, who, I under
stand, aro bitterly opposed to sisterhoods."

Senator Ramson, chairman of tho Sonate

The legislature to bo elected this fall has two

Christian Jarrctt Fatally Injured and Thrco
Others Badly Hurt by a Breaking Scnf
fold at St. Paul's Catholic Church.
Tho overweighting with brick of a scaffold
at a height of forty-fivo foot from tho ground
caused nu acoidout yettorday in which four
men narrowly escaped death.
As It was, Christian Jarrett, of Brookland,
was, at a lato hour last night, lying at tha
point of death In the Emergency Hospital,
whilo nrar hlin lay his sou, Frank, with two
broken ribs. Two other men who wore on
the scaffold, Richard Haines, No. C23 Soventh
street southwest, and J. W. Nichols, No. 213
G stroet northwest, both colored men, wore
badly bruisod about the faco, arms, and head.
All tho men were taken to tho Emergency
Hospital, where an examination Bhowed that
throo of tho older Jarrett's ribs wero brokon
and ono of his lungs had been pierced by a
portion of one rib, causing internal hemor
rhages. Frank Jarrett escaped with having
two ribs broken, whilo tho colored men got
off with painful bruises. The Jarrotts, father
and sou, were kopt at tho hospital and tho
others went to their homes.
Tho scono of thu accident was tho beautiful
now St. Paul's Catholic Church, corner of
Fifteenth and I streets, which is now fast
noarlng complotiou. Tho Jarrotts wero en
gaged In laying tho bricks, ana their contract
was nearly finished. The colored men wero
carrying them brick and mortar.
Thero were sevoral hods of brick and mortar
on tho scaffold, but no damage was appre
hended because there had frequently been
fully as much material thoro on many pluvious
About 2:15 p. m., however, tho scaffold
suddenly gavo way at tho place where tho
brick and mortar were lying, and tho by
standers were horrified to seo four mon fall
ing with fearful velocity through tho air.
As thoy struck tho ground they wero almost
buried in tho brick and mortar which had
fallen from tho scaffold. Those who wit
nessed the accident shrieked and bewailed tho
fate of tho four men, all of whom woro at first
thought to havo been killed.
Tho noise caused by tho bricks striking
boards and other debris caused great excite
ment, and people hastened from far aud near
to learn tho cause of tho trouble. A squad of
police arrived on tho scene promptly, aud by
stretchiuir ropes kept tho crowd back, so that
other workmen on tho building could como to
the rescue of their unfortunate comrades,
and in an inorediblo short timo tho debris that
had covered Jarrott and his associates was
removed, and they wero taken to tho hospital
whoro thoy received necessary attention.
Nellie Noustrcttor Not tho Woman Upon
Whom the New York Millionaire
Lavished His Wealth.
Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 31. Mr. Clom
Studobaker Is greatly annoyed by the state
ment in the San Francisco dispatch of last
night, referring to tho rocord of Nollio Neus
tretter, in which the name of Studebakcr, tho
millionaire carriage-maker, was coupled with
hers In an unpleasant manner. Mr. Studo
baker absolutely and emphatically denies
ever having known tho woman.
San Francisco, Aug. 31. A story was pub
lished bj- a morning paper in this city con
necting Mrs. Neusstadter with tho scandal in
tho family of W. K. Vanderbilt. Tho story
was fouudod on tho similarity between hor
namo and that of tho gay Parisian, Nellie
Neustretter, who is said to havo lured tho
American millionaire from the path of do
mostio rectitude. Mrs. Neusstadtor's fathor is
.Benjamin Cohen, of this city. He said in an
"It is nbsurd to say that this notorious wo
man and my daughter Nettie are the same
person. I have boon receiving letters from
her for tho past two years at regular intervals
of twclvo days. Thoy havo all been dated
New York. Only once to my knowledge did
sho visit Europe, and that was two years ago.
Then sho remained in Paris for a month. All
these stories to tho effect that my daughter
was ono of tho most notorious women of
Paris are untrue. Nettie did not speak Frenoh
well, and she never posed as a French woman,
so far as I know. If sho wero tho heroine of
the sensational escapades charged to her I
think I would havo known it."
The Cohens havo boon receiving lottors
from Mrs. Neusstadter at regular intervals
ever 6lnco her doparturo from this city. Tho
last letter was received on Tuesday and was
dated and postmarked New York. She wrote
to an Intimate friend a fow weeks ago to tho
effoct that sho will be in this city, during tho
latter pnrt of September.
New York, Aug. 31. In tho crush at tho
Casino last night was a handsome woman
who complained bitterly because the news
papers had published telegrams from San
Francisco accusing her of intimacy with W.
K. Vanderbilt. Hor name before sho was mar
ried was Nettie Cohen. Her husband procured
a divorce from her under'tbo name of Nettie
Nouestadter. Sho lives now as Mrs. Nita
Allen, almost opposite the homo of Ohauncoy
M. Depew.
"These Western peoplo havo mixed mo up
with somo othnr womnu," sho said to a re
porter. "I never saw Willie Vanderbilt in my
life. I do not wnnt to see him. I havo had
trouble enough without that. I did live in
San Francisco, and after somo trouble with
my husband I camo to New York because I
saw better prospects hore. It's nobody's
business but my own what I am doing horo,
nor do 1 caro to explain why I am living
under another namo."
This explanation straightens out ono tanglo
in tho Vanderbilt separation case.
Flower Routs on the Canton River on Firo
and the Unfortunate Natives
Perish in tho Flames.
Honq Kong. Aug. 31. A terrible firo has
occurred on tho Canton River. A flower boat
caught lire and tho fiamesspeaa until hun
dreds of those craft wero destroyed. Tho
progress of the firo was so rapid that at least
1,000 natives perished in the flames.
Tho flower boats were moored stem and

lived upon them. Tho spread of tho confla
gration from ono bont to another was so rapid
that tho unfortunate Chinese had no time to

materially helping to increaso the firo. Many
hundrods of tho poople on board tho flower
boats leaped overboard and were drowned,
whilo soveral hundred others remained on

Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 31. Socretary Head,
of tho committeo on accommodation of the

official estimate of tho uuraber of visitors ex

Up to date ho has provided for freo quar

this number of veterans will bo presont, swell

swell this number to at least 400.000.

safo quarters for tho hazardous journoy to
this city to bo oxhibited at tho oucampment.
Whilo ho desires to further tho Interests of tho

concludes that tho risk of railroad wreck, firo,

removal of tho Hags, which once destroved
can nover bo replaced. This decision is a
great disappointment to tho G. A. 11, mana

Fair, northeasterly winds.
Police Court Matters A very pleasant Inci
dent marked tho retiring of two judges from
office yesterday, both being presented by
members of tho bar with handsome floral de
signs representing the scales of justice.
For a month past Judges Taylor and Mills
havo sorved In the places of Judges Kimball
and Miller in tho police court whilo tho two
latter wero on thoir annual vacation, aud
their course has given such entire satisfaction
that tho jncmbors of the bar determined to
show their appreciation of their offort3 to
deal impartially with all. Accordingly a
committeo secured two floral designs pro
cisoly allKo and gavo them to the outgoing
judges In presenting tho designs Mr. Eugene
O. B. O'Koill, in a neat Jittlo speech,
addressed Justice Mills and spoke feelingly of
tho relations botwoen the court and the attor
neys, and on behalf of his brother lawyers
commended his honor for tho faithful, impar
tial, and common sense mannor in which tho
business of tho court had been dispatched
during the vacation of the regular judges, and
hoped that, while their duties wero arduous,
they were sufficiently pleasant to iuduco them
to desiro to return again next summer.
Mr. W. Calvin Cuaso made the address to
Judge Taylor, and pointing to tho scales,
said: "Llko Bolshazzar. you havo been
weighed in the balance; but unlike him, you
havo not been found wanting." Ho then, on
behalf of his brother lawyers, bade tho court
farewell, thanking him for tho consideration
and mercy ho had shown thoso who oy a com
bination of circumstances had become en
tangled in the meshes of the law, and for tho
