Those who opposed public discussion of the employment of boys as messengers to brothels slwuld read the compliment paid The Times, by Judge Miller, yesterday. There caa be uo reform without arousing public sentiment, and it is a wrong policy t allw evils to demoralize a community boo use a few individuals blush at Uie fiuggufiUon of their existence. The Times believes in fighting and abating public abu&es in the same fearless manner crim inals are pursued and prosecuted, and not In permiUng them to destroy the morals of coming generations. Pulrtk-evil loves compnnionship and when one exists others are sure to thrive. The outlaw track gave rise to JackMin City and it throng of toughs, thieves and crim inals, and the Division sends out its in fluence to debauch the young of both sexes. Uoth these harboring places of vice are sba-meful illustrations of false and mis directed public modesty, andhad they before beea vigorously attacked by press and pulpit tlH're would have been long since a general demand for their obliteration. Unless influence can be brought to lear oh the Virginia authorities Alexandria eMty will probably be dominated by gambler influence for four years more after tie coming election. Appearances in dtoate Ua uhe outlaw party -will elect tiboir candidates, much to the discredit of those who believe in law and order. A IRlJc oarneet work might yet change the result, bur nothing can be accompliElied unless tte reform element across the river arousethemsel ves f rom theirpresenti pa thy. Te Division can be abolished when Coh grew meets again, and that question will be taken up iater on. ItKV. DR. EXXIS EXONERATED. Yesterday The Times published two statoiiouls concerning the alleged attack on tb French ambassador by tho Rev. Howard Wilbur Ennis, also the follow ing editorial comment, "which fully ex plains the situation: Tb Tiroes yesterday morning published an extract of a icitnou delivered Sunday cveitiwg by the Rev. Howard Wilbur Emus wbton reflected quite feeverely on the Frttooh ambassador. M. Pateuotre. This morning ilr. Emis emphatically disavows liaving utude the statement, over his own wgnatre. at'd to te perfectly just and impartial The Times also publishes a latter from Mr. Matthew Tigbe, who re IKrted the 6erason. Those who heard the discourse are best lilted to Judge which of tbe two letters is correct. They are f&eat witnesses of Loth right and wrong. for the two signed statements flntly con tradict each other. As was expected, the silent "witnesses have called forth a verdict, and it has been demonstrated that the reporter was wrong. There is nothing more to say on the sub ject, except that The Times bears no 111-wHl either to the French ambassador or Rev. Ennis, and published the state rnont as It came from the reporter, de pending entirely on his reliability. ' No pressure of any kind has been brought to compel this statement, and it is made solely in the interests of those directly concerned. The Times proposes to treat all subjects fairly and from an unprejudiced standpoint, and "whenever a mistake is made it has the courage and honor to manfully make correction. With this The Times asks that both. M. Patonotre and Rev. Ennis will accept its explanation. SALE OF DISEASED JVIEAT. Health Officer Woodward's statemeut, published in another column, respecting the alleged sale of diseased meat In the DIs trlat, points to the necessity of one very stringent reform. There ought to be in spectors of live slock and more expert inspectors of slaughtered cattle attached to the health department. Witliout such the people are at the mercy of any unscru pulous dealer. The clwrge made by Dr. Salmon, of the Bureau of Animal Industry, that diseased meat has been sold In the District markets, is of a most serious character. Dr. Wood ward makes no denial of the fact, but merely explains the circumstances under which such a sale may have been possible. iTepointsouthowDr. Salmon himself could have prevented the sale of the Infected meat, and then adds his complaint as to tiie lack of inspectors. Under its present organization three toodnvpectors are employed by the health. Kpartmunt. They are supposed to see that no diseased meat, decayed vegetables and such like arc exposed for sale in the public mArkeis. Whether they conscien tiously peUonn their duties or not cannot bedetermried, save so far as Dr. Salmon's uorefuted charge carries weight But there are hundreds of other places besides the public Eftarkets where meat is "offered for sale, and in a good many of these in spectorial visitations might not be entirely uncalled for. Three inspectors, however, cannot cover so large a Held. There should be no less than one for every police precinct, so that the utmost vigilance can be maintained with reference to bo important a food article as meat. Congress ought to be im portuned for tho necessary authority to employ a larger force, and meanwhile the three lnspectora now at "work Bhould be stimulated toincreased exertion and greater watchfulness. ' 'TTlXt. NOT OBEY THE LAVT. The neglect of the Ecklngton Hallway to begin preparations to remove its trol ley poles by July 1 Indicates an Intention to ignore tho law and deface the streets of Washington for a 'still longer period. .u vuu un uiwiyuiauou oi s &ccorzieys I in the Flfty-teconfl Congress this company I QTRADgsI" -t? p) COUNCIL? obtained a postponement, and during the last session was defeated in nn attempt to sneak another delay through that body. Perhaps the company ia relying on the good nature of the District attorney for im niuuity.from prosecution. If so, it may bo mistaken. There is good ground for belief among District railway corporations that they can do about as they please when it comes to a question of obedience to the law. Heretofore they have had their own "way, both in and out of Congress, and theyseem to think that this condition of affairs must always exist. The case of the Ec'k ington Railway is especially aggravating, and as an example to others and to show that the reign of street railways is draw ing to a close this company should be promptly prosecuted should Its trolley poles remain standing at the limit of the time fixed for their removal. OUR CHINESE DENS. Our news columns this morning contain a shocking description of Chinese vice in Washington, which should at once bo eradicated. That such places and scenes could exist in this enlightened city can only "be explained by a laxity of police supervision. They disgrace even a race notorious for its low state of morals, and a little American law applied to tliue Co IestialolTenders would be of service to this community. Of all the foreigners who come to America to belter their condition the Chinese are the least-ncceptuble ami iiiosUnjtiiiou.s. Their methods of living, degrading ways of pastime and willingness to cheapen the price of labor have proved detrimental and demoralizing wherever they have located. Unlike oUierltumigr.itits they nuitliur become naturalized citizens or law abiding In tliolr habits, and It would be Tar better for the country if they could be entirely excluded. It is as useless to talk of civilizing Chinese as it is of taming a polar bear. By instinct, nature and inclination they are as invulnerable to enlightening in fluences as an armor plate Is to a pith ball, and the more rigid the law to keep them away the greater will be our benefit. The account of their Washington dens is but a shadow compared to the reality of their bestiality where their colonics are larger. The difference Gen. Campos shoots the reporter. President Cleveland kills the ninn who gave the interview with a soul searching reprimand. It is to be hoped that Svengali Jones did not iasteu his hypnotic eye on Gov. O'Forrall during that official's vlailto Alex andria. If the Supreme Court would give a dose of tle same knock-out drops to trusts that it u&ed on the income tax there would be less dissatisfaction with the decision. The Times marriage bureau is doing a wholesale business, and there seems to be general approval of this method of dis posing of alley immorality. It is much more humane to marry these couples and start them right in life than to prosecute and send them to jail. Such a punish ment would reflect on the future of their children and cause unnecessary distress. Were these people criminals or Intelligent offenders, possibly severe measures might be justifisd, but as their violation of the law has been more from inherited custom than desire to be law breakers, they fchould be treated as leniently as possible. At least, this is the verdict of charitable people. Our cartoon this morning represents this 'burial of the income tax, by the Su preme Court, Rev. Chief Justice Fuller officiating. After a brief tut promising existence the poor little thing fell into the hands of tho Supreme Court and was im mediately afflicted. While under tbe care of thiB dignified tody two of its best fea tures were amputated to save its life, eo 'tis said. On the return of this half-dead little government infant to its fond sponsor. President Cleveland, the illness continued, and once more the Supreme Court was called upon to diagnose its case. The funeral tells the rest of the story.

While the President is undoubtedly carry ing a vast deal of menial load in connection with Venezuela, Nicaragua, the attitude of England toward Hawalia, the caseorthe contumacious Meade, the silver question, the next convention and many other sub jects bound to interest a presldeut, he Is also nervously aware of his domestic sur roundings, aud. all the future promises in that behalf. This had evidence the other day, when Secretary Hoke Smith called at the White House to introduce young Ben Hill, of Georgia. Secretary Smith had jnst re ceived a wire from Atlanta, to the effort that he was the parent of a new daughter. The exhilarating news delighted the Sec retary beyond measure. For two months he -and the President had occupied the anxious bench together. Secretary Smith hastened at once to inform hl& chief of the succefsful ifsue of his fears and doubts. He was out of tho woods. Hereafter the chief executive might havetheanxiousbenchtohimseir. The moment young Bill was Introduced and that foimahty out of the way. Secretary Smith said: "Just got a wiie frcm Atlanta, Mr. President. Extend crrgiatulaticns to me. I've a new baby waiting to call me papa down there. "Is that so" replied the President, with a sympathetic start. "Boy or girl?" "Girl," responded the big Secretary, In tones of pride. "Girl," repealed Mr. Cleveland, with a look of concern. "Girl; how you must be disappointed." "Not at all." retorted Secretary Smith, lustily: "not nt all. I'm always ready to Indorse anything Mm. Smith does. Be sides, I've had two boys already." "That's true," replied the President, in a thoughtful way: "that's so. But still I should have wanted another boy." Monday .Not Friday. A statistician in the employ of the German government three years ago determined to make a carefulinvestigation of thesuperstl tionregardingFridayasanunluckyday. As a result or his exhaustive laborshe ha given tho world a book of quertab!cs and figures, which prove that it Is Monday and not Fri day that is the most ratal or unfortunate day in the week. But all the maxims to-the contrary that may bs ottered will not make Friday popular with those inclined to be superstitious.

As foreshadowed exclusively by The Times several times last week the Bakers' Exchange has restored the price of bread to the figures prevailing up to the close of warm weather trade last year. Tho change is to go into effect this morning. The pr.ee to cemtmers will Le 5 cents a single leaf of the standard weight and the wholesale price will Le 4 cents a loaf. These are the figuresannounccd to a portion of the trade yesterday. There seems to be some hitch in the pro ceedings and the change may not be ef fected as easily as supposed. President Charles Schneider, of the exchange, was in Baltimore all day yesterday and had not relumed at a laic hour last night. To a question by a Times reporter a positive statement that the price woiild be advanced was not made. It was only said than an agreement to advance had been made. INTO IIIS OLD RANK.

Each of tho parties named disclaimed having intended to indorse the quotation given us having- been uttered by Mr. Ennis, which wns: "Can we point our finger at the French Minister when we do thesame thing that he does." They individually dispute that the pastor made this personal mention of M. Pateuotre. Capt. Robert Armour, who resides at No. 920 Eighteenth street .northwest, and Dr. Kelly, at No. 901) I street northwest, and J. B. Lainbio who were interviewed last night, btated that they were present when Dr. Ennis preached the sermon and listened attentively to it, aud each slated that he did not hear the language imputed to Uieir pattor and could recall no similar term that he did use in connection with the topic that uilKiit have Ixjcii mistaken for "French Minister." This was afiiimcd by Dr. Ennis liimEelf, who stated rncst potitlvcly that ho did not refer penonally to anytcdy. He tn d he made refeience to the moralsof the French, English, and Geiruan capitals, respectively, and alto to tho morals of our own capital and to these of Ch'eogo.but he wascnrojul to omit personalities. It has been his habit, he la.'d, to refrain frrm any huch hippodroming practices as are tome times adopt ed by cortai 11 pastors. When a call was made upon Col. Amos Webster at No. -020 F street northwest, he had retired, b:it members of his Hunily who attended church Sunday evening and listened to the discourse, said they hoard no personal allusions whatever durirg Its delivery. One of those interviewed recalled that Dr. Ennis used the- term "French nation" in pretty nearly the con nection in which the other was quoted, but neither these nor any others who were questioned about the matter agreed with tiie teporter thut the French Mluister was lefurrcd to directly or indirectly, and the claim was made that The Times did the pastor Injustice by attributing to hlni the language quoted. Editor Times; In tho issue or The Wash ington Times of May 20, a startling head line, M. Palnotre's Morals," echoed the unchristian and uncharitable txt of the Rev. Howard AVl.bur Ennis; "Can we point our finger at th" French minister when we ourselves do the same thing that he does?" In the name of common sense and com mon deency, I protest against this insinua tion thrown upon the ciiaracteroftheFrench ambassador at Washington. To the trionds of M. Pateuotre they are legion his d"fensc is simply the record of his private and public IH-j, both or which are uiiimpnchablo.

Board of Trado Committee Had No IntGlow with Him. It is quite probable now that the com mittee of nlno will not send to Gov. O'Fer rell tho protest, as suggested by the mass meeting of tho board of trade last week. It was suggested yesterday, informally , and withbutameetingof tho committee, that it would bo best to take advantage of Gov. O'Ferrell's visit to Washington yesterday and invited him to a conference with the committee. It was Impractical, however, to carry out this suggestion on account; of tho gov ernor's engagements at Mount Vernon. He left the city yesterday morning for that place and was expected to retju rn here at 2:30 in the afternoon. Mr. J. B. Wight, secretary of the board, was to meet him on his return and arrange for the confluence Gov. O'Ferrall, however, did not return to Washington, but went back to Richmond from Alexandria. It has been suggested, and tho proposi tion Is favored by Judge JCimliall anil Mr. VSirner, the presiduti tof tho Board of Trade, that a sub-committee of the etuiimlliee of nine be appointed to wait on Gov, O'Fer rall aud dthciibs the whole matter with him personally. Mr. F. L. Moore, the chairman of the committee, will leave the city to-d.iy for New Haven, Ct., but it was stated last night that pcwnlbly Mr. Warner, who is chairman cx-orrieio of all tilt-committees, willaskthuttliecoiiimitlees meet at an early time aud consider this proportion. Mr. Wight tnld that he feared that Gov. O'Ferrall had bcou misinformed as to statements of tho Beard of Trade in the agitation. Ab he urderttccd it the l.onrd and the governor aro in accord on the main points at isfeue. Gov. O'Ferrall was ecen by The Times representative at Alexandria and reiter ated substantially what hap already been published as his views, dtfircs, and in tentions. DENTISTS' UNION MEETING.
