Solicitor Heave, of tho Treasury, late last

Chief Hazon, of tho Secret Service, just as

'I have partly sustained iho government
in their contention. It is very evident that
Congress intended to fully protect tho issues
of foreign stamps, but they hnvo not been as
explicit as I would wish in tho terms ol tho
statute as to these stamp8, not near as ex
plicit at any rate as they are as to our own
'My opinion is very voluminous," added
Mr. Beevo, pleasantly, "as it was neces-ary
fo make plain some points about tho law that
Congress failed to make so. I have advised
thul the printing of thisc stamp albums be

In answer to the request to bo allowed to

that ho did not like to give it to the public be

for whom it was intended, and re. erred the
reporter to that olncial. Up to the Lour of

"If such is tho decision of the Solicitor of

1 he reporter was shown quite a number ot
stump catalogues, albums, and periodicals by
another prominent stamp connoisseur,
who does not wish his uamo menti oucd
through fear that somo or his treasures may
be confiscated by tho authorities a-, contra
band. Among them were tho London Phil
atelist. Generalbuzeiger fur Philatelic of
Germany, and tho Journal of Philately, of
loronto" Canada. All of theso periodicals
had American as well as fore.gn stamps fully
illustrated, the German journal having a
full issue of the Columbian stamps, while the
Canadian periodical had many United States
stamps reproduced in colors.
Conies of the catalogues of Stanley, Gib
bons& Co., of London, and of Gebruder
Serf, of Leipsic, who are said to be tho prin
cipal foreign publishers of stamp albums,
were al&o exhiDited. Loth of thefo cata
logues have United States as well as foreign
stamps illustrated, tho former devoting four
paes to stamps of this country.
It was laughingly suggested to the re
porter that the tlmn would perhaps soon ar
rive when wo would have a censor of the
press, and the stamp collector will get bis
foreign journals with wholo paces erased and
looking like a liussian exile story which hud

Cold Comfort for Washington.
Tho forecast issued last ni;;bt by the
Weather Bureau offers but cold comfort to
Washingtonians. With tho wind from the (
direction of "Greenland's icy mountains" j
and a stationary temperature the citizens
must find consolation in a promise or fair
weather and that tho wind will graduallv
become westerly. At a late hour last night a
mercurial thermometer at Ninth street and
Pennsylvania avenue inuieatod ton degreos
above'zero, which was proba lv correct, al

that a thermometer hanging in front of his
storo marked three aegrces below. Perhaps
