Tin- apiri'jnation for rniPihjr. the dam at Gr-at Falls to Jjiciaw oar wnti-r supply was a ;r-at luvor to this city. It dis pelled all fear ot a vratT fnnibu and gave grat'r caube for lvjabtinjr that 'Washington . lias tin clii'aix'hi and Ixt water Mrviee in th- Uiutfd total-. Thif. fact i pointed to with considerable prid bv tho-e iu authority, aud citizens nulte generally in commanding oar xe4Mrc water service. But this Katuv f-ervice niiglil well be cli-npor. AIkhjc tlirv hundred lbuusand dollars it, n-aliz-d in prolWs l'rm water rents each yar, and Uiib turplus ! set oside for otler ut'-s. lieceutly it haft been dwrted t itymiir on tin' LjMooker tun nel, wiiWi payments would have other wise lf-ii niad- by appropriation-; of Con gregfc. Then- is wo tpecifie act directing Uiat ili AVasluugtoR public f-hall be taxed on water rents to pay foi the tunnel or for any purpate except to maintain the service, and therefore no necessity of earn ing profits n water rents. More tlmn.two-tliinlBof the water rents are paid by i)o"j4i'if ordinary meatu- owu crs of dweiUug jriferry, renters of houFe, shop keepers, and men aud women who vork for email wRgos. They pay for water serx-icv liecaase it is the principal neooH-rty of life, aud It is mijUbt to com pel tliem to contribute, more than two thirds of the money paid to the Lydclcer tunnel liKtebtoduess. It Is wrong, m fact, to a sk them to pay profits on water rents for any iwrpo&e whatever. The ConimiSMoners liavc it within their power to reduce the charges for water bervice to mcrt the actual expenditures. This bbould be done at once. Our water works tdtould not be made a subject for filteottlation. uor should it earn a cent above the actual amount needed to keep it in thorough working condition, and as the greater part of it Beamings come from poor people, there should surely be no surplus to distribute in payment of debts con tacted by Congress. THE NEW GAEBAGE CEEltATOET. It is gratify big to note that Dr. "Wood ward hat proposed jrtaus for a crematory for the reduction of garbage, and that pro posals for its construction are soon to be thought, Warfiinjriou greatly needs such a itlattt to dispose of her refuse matter, aud the experience of last winter is evi-d.nc-e Umk it cannot he boHt too quickly. Tortheoodof theiwlJlicit might be men tioned tLai there are other things besides the city garbage that could lie incinerated to good advantage, and tlie commission of Je-oitier Taylor might bo zseutioned as our That gtlMu"6 career has not lKxu NUtiilariy angelic, and the burning of hie official certiJSeate would not cause crape to le i?d to tlK doorknobs of many Washington residences. The character of the outlaw track would albo be good fuel. The men who con trol that nest of swindlers will, no doubt, ev a hotter place tlian & city crematory at some t m- ah the future, aud as evidence that we wish them a safe journey, their title to lawiesfieb should be burned iu advance. Kine-leutbs of the "Washington public es pecially etesiro that the present gas and electric lighting schedules find a warm corner in the crematory. No one wishes the immense wealth these monopolies have aocumuimed should follow the schedules, but it would lie id easing to know that high prices wereBestroycd, and that in future gas and electric lighting would be furnished at tlie rales paid in other cities. These and other licensed abuses might be cremated along with the garbage, aud not be mourned by the general publc. o NOT HITCH IN IT. Jude McAdam in rendering an opinion in a 3Jow Tork court said: 4,The wife should hey all reasonable demands of the husband Under the English law the hus band's authority was supreme, and he had a right to chastise his wife. The law is different now, but still the hus band's reasonable demands must bo olieyod " Gentle lady reader, jlon't let your back hair fall down in anger at this decision. 33causa learned Judgesays that youare the short end of a marriage contract does not make it so. It i6 safe to assert that no one builds the morning fire more meekly or at tends tlie baby more suiinn.-stvely than ibis same Judge McAdam. It is man's prerogative to bluster and boas of his superiority. The law upholds Wm in this right because he so frames it in our legislative halls. In public, at the poll sand ou the payroll he is the kitig bee with all the stripes and buzz there Is in such a position. But when it comes to paying for spring bonnets, or promising to never do it again, man is woman's veriest slave. Come to think of it, but few women will wrinkle their foreheads in scorn over the comment of Judge McAdam. They know how it is themselves. It is reported that the rebuilding of the Pobtmaster Genoral's chair at the Cabinet table on smaller lines will in no way shrink the salary.

One of the moBt versatile actors who has ever spoken the English language will appear at tho Grand Opera House in a repertory of plays during the three nights, beginning Monday evening, April 1. The actor is Becrbohni Tree, whose name is known wherever dramatic art is understood, although until this season his sphere of action has been limited to the British isles. He surrounded himself with a splendid company at the Haymarket Theater, London, and when he decided to make an American tour of eleven weeks ho decided, also, to bring the entire cons pany and every particle ot scenery, cos tumes, and properties required In each of the do7cn ot so plays (o be produced here. The repertory for the engagement will be Monday and Wednesday nights and Wednesday matinee, "A Bunch of Vio lets," preceded by "A Ballad Monger;" Tuesday night, "Captain Swift." On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of next week Kite's "1492" will appear. Seats for the two attractions go on sale this morning. Next Monday evening will be one of merriment at the National Theater, when Charles Hoyt's latest play will be presented. "A Black Sheep" is the quaint title, and it is the lunniest of all this popular author's many attempts. While Mr. Hoyt has adhered closely to farcial lines, he ha sin his new work intro duced an abundance or spirited and catchy music. "A Black Sheep," aside from being what is claimed as a delightful entertain ment, with its Dresden china women, its gorgeous colorings, its rapid movements, itb engaging music, and amusing satire, is said to be replete with character drawing -that commands wide attention, and one perceives in it a keen insight of human foibles. The cast selected by the author to portray the various quaint characters in his new work is pronounced a remarkably slrong one, including, as it docs, such we-U-known people ah Otis Hailan, Fanny Johnston, Joseph Frankan. AVilllam Do Verc, Agnes Rose Lane, Joseph Nntus, and thse sensational dancers, Lottie Moore and Hattie Wells, One of the test of farce comedies, "The Dazzler" will be the attraction at the Academy next week. It comes with an indorsement gained by successful engage ments iu other cities. Tlorle West, Charles Wayne, Mason and Ralston, and the De Witt Sisters are the. principal entertainer. The other members or the company are equally well known, and le been selected with a view to the musical and dramatic requirements of the play. Martin Julian's Australian Athletic and Vaudeville Company will be manager Ker nan's attraction nexL week: This novel organization is the only ono of its kind in existence, in fact, the idea of an ath letic combination is original with Mr. Ju lian. A remarkable vaudeville perform ance and a grand athletic tournament, in troducing only real champion athletes, are combined in one programme, forming a moht brilliant and Btupendouseiitcrtainment. The vaudeville contingent is especially strong, and includes many high-class artists, among whom are Julian and Cook, the marvelous acrobats; Mile. Then, the beautiful musical queen; Gracie and Reynolds, the eccentric comedians; Mecca, the remarkable boy tenor; the Robinsons, the favosite duetists, and Whitman and Davis, comedy sketch artists. Among the athletic champions Is Capt. Duncan C. Ross, who challenges any man in the world to compete with him at mounted broad sword combats for $5,000 a side. Capt. Ross will give an exhibition of mounted broad swordsmanship with Graeco Martino, champion ot Italy. This is positively the first opportunity the theater-going public has had to witness a genu ine broad sword combat on any btage. Other prominent athletes in the company are Johnnie Van Heest, feather-weight champion of the Pacific coast, and Dnnny McBnde, 122-pound champion of New Y'ork; Charles G. Jefrerson, champion strong man; Cradoc, champion Roman battle ax swinger of the world, and Robin son and Brown, champion all-around jump ers of the world. , The above champions will pos.tlvely meet all comers in their respectiVQ lines for special prizes and purses offered by the management. On Monday nextN. S. Wood, the popular Impersonator of youthful stage heroes, begins an engagement at Butler's Bijou Theater. The little gamin of the street, whether newsboy in hard luck, stranded bootblack, or poverty rag-picker, has a pathetic side to his apparently almost brutal and "animal life. "OulontheStrcets"treatsorthest niggles of the poorand innocent, it is a combination of bunihine and shadow, laughter and tears, and does not partake of thel Wlessness of plot, which too ofteninjurespiecesof this character. The play poitrays life as it existsin largecitlcs and K presented withall the accessories of handsome scenery, realistic mechanical effects, and a sup porting company of exceptional excellence. g e ALEXANDRIA HAPPENINGS.

FRAZIER, Manager feT-lmo Saks and Company, CHDRCH AND THE LABORERS Attitude of the Protestant Orflaniza tions the Subject of a Lecture. Mr. J. 0. Brook3 Says It Is Being Drawn -Into Socialism Why labor Men Do Not Attend Churches. The relation of the Protestant church to the labor problem was discussed yesterday afternoon by Mr John Graham Brooks, of Boston, bc-rore the school' of applied ethics at Columbian University. Mr. Brooks took as the representatives of Protestant activity m thib direction the Lutheran Chuich of Geimany and the High Church of England He would not in clude in his lrcturc tho work of the Protestant c-huich in church institutional work or that of the Salvation Army, to both of which, however, he gave ample praise. Nor would be touch on the work of the dissenting church, that of Mansfield House, and other endeavors to workthrough practical policy. It would be admitted generally that there ! no such unity in the Protestant churches as there is in the Catholic. In Germany the Lutheran Church iscom lattlng socialism, which recently had be come practically a new religion, in which. In many plates', theGcHpelof I bsciiwastaught by lecturers and on the stage. The Church is brought into direit contact with socialism and was being drawn into it lo work for a higher purpose than socialism itself. It was scattering abroad a literature prepared by learned men whoare endeavoring to counteract tin- movement and In some respects work like the con servatiNt element iu the Catholic Church. As to the position of the high church, Mr Brroks contended that it had gone into the socialistic movement so far as its adoption e f the co-operative svstem. the trade-union movement, and municipal socialism are ontcrned. Mr. Brooks diew the broad distinction Letwten the Catholic policy and the Pro testant politic by asserting that the former was aristocratic and the latter democratic. A very interesting part of the discussion was that in which Mr. Brooks noted that the higher intellectual clasb or tociallsts were abandoning materialism as unable to ac count forthe higher phenomena. In reply to a question from a lady in the audience as to why the Catholic and Protestant churches ebd not work together on this subject Mr. Brooks said. "Socialism will eventually force them to work together," a statement which was greeted with much applause. He Eaid that in the organized charities of Boston these churches work together in harmony and that in thelast Protestant laborcongress in France there were Catholic delegates. Mr. Robert Parkman, of the Knights ot Lalwr, said that the question of why tho workinginen of Washington did not go to church was discussed at the last meeting of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew here, and that it was finally concluded to ask the laboring men. Mr. Parkman said that the question would bo answered. The speaker said that the ministers of London ..oKcc. the Socialist leader why the Social ists did not attend church. The reply was thatthe mhusterssided with tlienchagamst the poor, and that the memorial of the ministers was out of place. The Social Istsspoke of the ministers on the chloroform ing agencies of the confiscating classes. Mr. Brooke did not endorse the sentiments of the reply, Rev. Dr. Kent made a few remarks at the close of the lecture, in which he ex pressed his regret that the clergy of the city had not attended the lectures of Mr Brooks. RECORD OP THIS COURTS.
