Notwithstanding the Tree silver wave that seems to be rolling over the country the American people Lave too much tense to attempt bimetallihtn without .European co-operation. The advocates of national free silver can not be sincere, for no sane person would deliberately lead a people into dfeastcr and distress, and overwhelm industries and trade with financial ruin. There can be no such thing as rational bimetall.sm. National free silver would drive gold to a premium and gold payments would have to le impended. This would necessitate silver pa j incuts and the adop tion of a silver standard. Trices would rise in sympathy with our depreciated money, gold would cease to ciiculate and -would liavc to he obtained from usurious brokers. Capital would lie withdrawn from investments, trade would suffer frpm want of demand, stocks would depreciate, and a general upheaval would take place in ovcry branch of busiuess. No fccnsiWe perron could desire such an unsottled condition of affairs. It could result in nothing but financial revolution, which would end in a panic and bankruptcy. No country has ever yet tried such a mad experiment, nor will the United States do so unless its people arc stricken witli finaitctalliniacy. -And surely that misfortune bas not yet hapitcncd. NO EXTHA SESSION. It is absolutely ridiculous to charge the .President with contemplating an extra ses islon of Congress to gain an alleged party ad vantage. It is no trifling matter to as soiiilft so important a body, and only one crnts deration could iuduce ilr. Cleveland, tlPr6ide3t7tomake such a move. Should a financial emergency arise, or a war im pend, winch made theassistance of Congress noongtary, that body slioutd be assembled. This calls up the question of newspaper "Otialtflity. Exaggerated accounts of every bit of gossip caught up on the street is not only harmful to the reputation of a paper, bttt is ueoftssartly misleading to its readers. - !Not every wows item can be verified, and there Is a moral rcsiwnsiliility resting on the editor wlw decides lis importance. Should the item appear impracticable on its face ainl incapable of verification, it should lie suppressed without reference to a sensational value. The true newspaper is tlie one that in structs without destroying confidence, that leads without misleading, that gives facts wlthowtcxaggeration, and that publishes the truth without resorting to sensational sub terfuge. Such a paper with fair business management will always succeed. AN LNT0LE2AELE NUISANCE. Assistant District Attorney Duvall hasof ilclally advised the District Commissioners that, the Belt Line Railroad Company 1'as xo right to maintain a public nuisance by stabling its horses on O btreet, or any other street, for that matter. He has further advised the Commissioners that by doing so the company lays itself liable to criminal prosecution. There is nothing specially new or interest ing in this information, for it is not Mip posable that a corporation has any more right to maintain a public nuisance than a private citizen. If the latter were to empty the garbage or ashes In front of his house lie would be ordered by the first policeman that happened aloDg to remove it at once or be subject to prosecution in the police court. Stabling four horses in front of a pri vate residence from early morning till late at night is a uuieance infinitely more aggra vated. ' "What is of interest, however, is the cir cumstance that it should require more than a week before the Commissioners or their law officer take cognizance of this plain Violation of law. Why did not the police in this instance notify the company to abate ne nuisance, and, if they failed to do so, Drlng tho responsible officials into the police court to answer for their offense? IJ 16 an outrage upon the whole neighbor hood. ,Now that the Commissioners have been officially notified that the company is violating a municipal ordinance, it is to Do assumed that Uiey will issue prompt or ders toMaj. Moore to take steps ;o relieve tbe residents of 0 street and keep the licit Line Company within the law. STEIKE AT THE FOUNTAIN HEAD. ' It is worse than useless to censure Jackson City and Rosslyn without con demning the place that brought them into existence. The fountain-head of crime, tie feeder of these notorious dens of In famy, is the outlaw race track. It is this resort for criminals and toughs that fur nishes patrons to the saloons and gamb ling boles of Jackson City and Rosslyn, and "when once abolished those places would cease to exist, f The worEt phase of tho question is tho apparent connivance of Alexandria county authorities with the outlaw track. No effort is made to suppress its lawless ness, or to make preteuse of euforclng tbe law. Gambling, Illegal liquor sell ing, rotibery, confidence crookedness and other species of crime are even encour aged, and the better element of the county Eeem belpless onlookers. i "It is reported that Gov. O'Ferrall Is a candidate for United States Senator. If true e could do notbing more popular than to exterminate the outlaw track and its vicious following. Got. Mat thews, of Indiana, bas made himself a possible candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination by his vigorous prosecution of tho Eoby outlaw track, wbion Is sufficient evidence, if Gov. O'Ferrall needs It, that the general pub lic Is opposed to Bucn lawlessness. An effort should be made to call Got. O'Ferrall's attention to tho disgraceful condition of affairs across the river. THIS -COUNTRY "WILL PAETICIPATE. Information comes to-day that the Ori ental peace treaty has been modified so that tbe trade privileges obtained by Japan will apply toallpowersconilngunderthefavored nation clause. It true, this will include all important commercial countries and secure for Japan an immediate ratification of the treaty. The attitude of Germany, England and Russia on this important question must liavo brought about this concession, and it shows how quick these countries resent an en croachment on their commercial rights. To make "a people prosperous something must be'done to enlarge their markets, and the United States will have to adopt that policy beforo she can enjoy tlie fullest benefit of our great resources. Only twenty-eight days remain in which to get a splendid book by subscribing for The Times. Delaware is a little State, but it has an awful long legislature. The upward turn of beef ought to see tho Trust well roasted. Tho fact that all Chicago newspapers are Republican will not discourage the Altgeldt Democracy. Before Secretary Gresham can be sure of his correspondence tho "White House transfer station must be abolished'. It is suspected that the Thurston letter was sidetracked there. This year the campaign of education be gins where Congress left off and is sure to continue the financial muddle. "When wheeling is hard most fair bi cyclists aspire to loth bloomers and pants.

A well filled house greeted Ada Rehan and her company at the new National Theater last night. The play was an adap tation from the German of Stobitzcr by Augustin Daly, eiititled "Love on Crutches." Miss Rehan as Annis Aubtin, a misunder stood wife, was, as usual, fascinating to a Jiigh dt gree. She combines more than any other actress those qualities of voice and gesture thnt winsympathy andinterebt In the most trivial thing she does. As Annis Austin she has ample oppor tunity for tbe portrayal of those little coquetries that fascinate the auditor and make the man in the front row wish he was playing the "opposite lead" to heY, if only for a moment. Her voice, which has been written about so much, could not be more silvery than the metal in which she 'was immortalized by Montana at the World's Fair. The comedy is bright and brisk in action and is full of laughable complications, 'which were' well brought out by a carefully selected company. Frank Worthing, as Sydney Austin, played the part created by John Drew when he was leading man in Daly's company, and played it well. Miss Sybil Carlisle, as Margery Gwinn, a widow, was vivacious and sweet. Since her last visit to Washington Miss Rehan's Titian red hair has undergone a percep tible change and now appeared as a halo of 6un-ki&sed corn. To-morrow night the play will be "The Honeymoon." Mr. Stuart Robson and the excellent com pany he always brings with him were wel comed back to Washington by a very large audience last night at Allen's Grand Opera House. "Leap Year," the title of the play in which lie opened his engagement. Is sug gestive enough to indicate that there is a reversal of the orthodox fashion of making love. The comedy is one of a high order, clean, bright, full of point and sprightly dia logue, and, as intimated, the cast knew how tohandlcthelinesandtheaetion. Mr. Robson was, of course, handsomely received again when he appeared. In the first act there is ample opportunity of observing Mr. and Mrs. Robson as Diony sius Dimple and Miss Sarah O'Lcary. The reception of the acting here should have been very flattering, however just to the actors. There are twelve people in the cast. The Sir Solomon Solus is taken by Mr. JolinLi.Woodcrson.Capt.MouserbyMr. Yearance, William Walker by H. Bergman, Mrs.Flowerby by Miss Grace F. Lynch, Mrs. Crisp by Mrs. Gabrielle McKean, Miss Desperate by Miss Campbell. The attraction at Kcrnan's this week is Sara T. Jack's Extravaganza Company." They were greeted lastuigbt by acrowded house. The show is a very good one with the two-act extravaganza entitled "The Bull Fighter," the feature. Robert Van Osten, as Rags, a tramp and Lew Carroll as his partner, played the most prominent parts and kept the audience in loars of laughter. Emihc Peare, a very gocd soprano, sang several songs and was encored loudly. Later in tne evening she appeared as Mile. Diana, in a beautiful dance, during which new prismatic kaleidoscopic and electric light effects were introduced, which caught the crowd and they again encored her. Symonds, Hughes, and Rastus were first class in 6inging and dancing, they giving an excellent exhibition of buck dancing. Patina set the crowd wild with the Kouta Kouta dance. The living pictures were beautiful and the crowd appreciated them. The attraction at Butler's Bijou Theater this week is a good production of Ridor Haggard's famous oriental romance, "She." The company carries a great deal of special Ecenery and is under the capable manage ment of Charles H. Young. Some of the scenes and tableaux are im pressive and wierd. The company truly is good. Chester DeVaude, in the character of Leo Vuicey, is exceptionally strong and is well supported. Lawrence Grant, as Horace Holley; Walter Montgomery, as Lamoor; Miss Lottie Church, as Ustane, are very good. Tho principal character, "She," is assumed by Miss Sadie Farley, and she is simply perfect. Acnilemy. Change of Hepertoirp. A change of repertoire is announced for next week at the Academy, where the Hinrich Grand Opera Company are to open the season on Monday. "II Trovatore" will be substituted for "Carmen," as previously announced. Any disappointment which might be occasioned will bs dissipated by the pleasing announcement of the appearance of Mons. A. Li. Guille, the eminent tenor, as Manrico. Perry Averill, a dashing young baritone, will be the Count Di Luna. Mme. Kronold, Miss Fleming and Sig. Viviani will al60 be in the cast. The opera on Tuesday night and Saturday matinee will bo "Romeo and Juliet;" Wednesday and Saturday nights, "Carmen." Sig. Guiseppe Campa nari, who has been especially engaged, will make his first appearance as the Toreador. The occasion will also servo to introduce the Italian tenor, Sig. Del Papa. Thursday, "Faust," with Campanarl as Valentino. Friday night, for the first time in this city, "La Gioconda," with both Guille and Cam panari in the cast.

Matching these dainty costumes tho two attendants carried large bouquets of delicate pink orchids tied with tho Bume shade of ribbons. of tho groom, Mr. Joseph Leitcr, brother of tho bride, Mr. Spring-Rice, of the British Embassy, and Mr. Walter Van Rensselaer Berry, wore us boutonuieres a single pink orchid and spray of maiden hair fern. RICHEST OF WEDDING GOWNS. All attention waB centered upon the wedding gown, one of the last and most splendid creations of Worth. It was fcim plicity itself and yet simplicity of the most splendid kind. It was white satin of such richness, that as gleams of light fell upon it from the open windows,' it shone like burnished silver. The skirt was fashioned quite plainly in front, with tho grace and elegance of a full court train at the back. The high neck corsage was trimmed with rarest old point lace that liad been worn by the brkle'Bmother at her marriage to Mr. Lciter in 18G6. The tulle veil, which completely enveloped the wedding gown and fell to tlie edge of the train, was trimmed about tlie upper portion with the rose point lace that had served this same purpose for the bride's grandmother, Nancy Lathrop Fish, when she married Benjamin Carver, of Utica. The Scarsdale diamonds flashed and gleamed upon tlie bride as she passed down the aisle to meet her husband, the future Lord Scartdale. These consisted of a coronet of magnificent stones holding in place the wedding veil that floated down completely enveloping tho splendid gown to the very edge or the court train, and left the bride's- face entirely free, to the very: evident satisfaction of the guests gathered within the church. SCARSDALE FAMILY JEWELS. At citiier side of the head catching the veil further back were two diamond stars given the bride by her sisters. The mag nificent necklace of diamonds that encircled the bride's throat and fell with numerous dazzling pendants half way down the front of hercorsage wasalso part oftheScnrsdale family jewels. In place of tlie conventional bouquet tlie bride carried a prayer book bound in white leather, from which the marriage service was read. Bishop Tulhot, of Wyoming, assisted by Archdeacon Mackay-Stnith, performed the marriage sen-ice, the bishop pronounc ing the benediction at tlie close of the ceremony. Mrs. Leltcr's gown was of purple vel vet with point lace. Lady Miller wore a gown of dark blue satin brocaded in ara besque of gold, with hat to match. The wedding breakfast was served at noon at tlie Leitcr residence, on Dupont Circle, outside of which was gathered almostas large a throng as that which made the driveways and pavements about St. John's Church for a time utterly impass able, even to the wedding party. Along the driveway outside the house spring flowers were massed in gorgeous profu sion, so thnt without as wUl nk within the place was in wedding attire for the bride and groom who yesterday began their married life under such auspicious oir stnnces. SCENES AT THE HOME.- ' Within the house the spacious marble hallways were decorated by Small with great branches of apple and cherry blos soms, while trees of mngnolia in full bloom stood about in the corners and niches. In the window-ledges and"along the marble railings were brilprnX hijcd, tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and lilies, that filled the air with their sweetness. The bride and groom received in the Em pire drawing-room, standing before the immense onyx fireplace. Th's was com pletely concealed by a massing of maiden hair ferns, from which hung myriads of delicate pink orchids, the same flowers falling from the upper ledge in a fringe of color that fairly seemed alive as it quiv ered with every slightest current of air. Beneath the lire-sized portrait oC the bride, painted some years ago by Cabanel,s was a mound of English forget me-jiots that made a beautiful bit of color and v as suggestive of no end of romantic fore thought on the part of those having the decorations in charge. The wedding breakfast was served in the white and gold ballroom opening out from this drawing-room, as the dining-room ordj narlly used at entertainments was to-day considered insurficlent to accommodate, the guests invited to the wedding break fast. One would think that thero was little, if any thing, new in tho way of decora tion with which to astonish and delight the artistic senses of eociety, but today proved the contrary. SUPERB FLORAL DECORATIONS. Risiug from cither sido of the main table to the ceiling, and thus completely covering the walls, spread out the gorgeous Bougaii' villia vine, its magenta blossoms so thickly clustered as to give the impression of a great wave of color having swept over tlie ornate department. The floral decorations of the table consisted of three ellipses of pink orchids. Beneath ono of the archways with the fluted gilded columns on either side and a background of maidenhair ferns was tho large wedding cake. This was act in a wreatli or the lilies or the valley, surrounded in turn by a larger wreath of whltcorchids. Alter the guebts had extended their con gratulations and good wishesforallmanner of never-ending happiness, many or them were asked into the library, where Uiey inscribed their signatures upon the marriage certificaleor parchment, atthetop of which were the monograms of thebridcand groom. Mrs. Cleveland's name was the first to be inscribed, and after her the Cabinet pres ent signed their names. MRS. CLEVELAND AND RUTH. Mrs. Cleveland was accompanied by her little daughter Ruth to tho wedding, and later to tlie breakfast. This fact was known to comparatively few persons in the church, as while Mrs. Cleveland was es corted down one aisle, tlie President's little daughter, in a costume of rose pink, was takeu down the opposite aisle oy her two nurses. As tills is the first occasion on which the child has attended any pub lic gathering or indeed entertainment of any kind outside of the Cabinet circle, it marks quite an epoch in the little maid's calendar. There was another little girl who, yes terday, for tho first timo, attended a wed ding. This was Margaret Bisseil, daughter of the ex-Postmaster General. Between Mrs. Leitcr and Mrs. Bisscll there bas existed a friendship that dates back of tho latter's coming to Washingtou. It is, in fact, a lift, -long friendship, Mrs. Loiter having been oiu of the guests at tho marriage of Mrs. Bissell's parents. When, at tho conclusion of all the wedding festivities, tho bride and groom drove away to take tho train for their wedding trip and the houso company, together with the other guests, crowded about tho doorway to call out the last good wishes and throw rico and flowers in their wake, Mrs. Curzon woro a going-away gown of blue crepon, with a large hat to match, and tho perfection of Worth's confections iu tho shapo of a little wrap.

These figures represent an ad vance of 10 per cent, over the club's gas bill for 1S87. It was agreed that the club should put into the building wires, etc., for ttie use of the lights, and that the contrast should run after the first year subject to cancellation by the club, but not by tlie company. The bill filed yesterday by Messrs. Car lisle & Johnson, as attorneys for the club, says they have used thelight forseveu years under this contract, and, though the com pany has often sought to have the agreement cancelled and another substituted, the club has always refused and still refuses to give up its rights under it. The company lias threatened to cut off thecurrent on thegroundthattheclub failed to pay its bills for March and April on the 1st of the month. But the bills never Have been paid earlier than the 4th of the month, and have often ran to the end. The club has offered to pay the bills. Lpon this showing the court is asked to compel a specific performance of con tract, and meantime the club has paid into court the amount due the company. The case will come up for a hearing before Judge Cox on next Monday. Arsuinont on the Gray Verdict. The appeal of the District against a $1,500 verdict in favor of Edwin N.
