One liundred and twenty live years ago
Hip fathers of the nation adopted the Dec
laration of Independence in Philadelphia
and today the patriots of the Uepuhllc
which then and there had its birth will
commemorate that historic and
The manner of celebration will depend
largely upon the Inclinations of the cele
brants rather than upon their patri
otism which never knows any differ
ence of degree upon July 4 For the
enthusiastic and demonstrative persons
there are a variety of methods for rejoic
ing and remembering- the day upon which
was blown the first blast which sounded
the death knell of English supremacy and
it would he fruitless to attempt to enum
erate them
Those who delight to recount the deeds
cf valor and pay their annual tribute of
words to the Revolutionary patriots will
meet and while instilling patriotism and
love of country into the minds of the
yunger generations will tell of the strug
gles trials and triumphs of the fore
fathers and recall the progress which the
country has made during the past cen
tury and a Many will enjoy the
day as one of recreation in rest from
labor and the excessive heat and In so
doing will seek out cool and secluded
spots where they will have opportunity
for meditation
For the ubiquitous small boy there will
be the Inevitable firecracker toy pistol
with paper caps torpedoes and other
peace destroying inventions with sky
rockets Roman candles spinning wheels
and an array of pyrotechnics for the
night In fact all the devices which with
gunpowder and lulcfer matches will aid
In making a noise With the liberal use
of all these Young America the future
defender and protector of the nation if
need be will make merry upon the anni
versary of the nations natal day
It will matter not to him if on the mor
row there shall be a few blinded eyes
shattered legs and arms thumbless hands
burned fingers and scarred and burned
faevs Did not the soldiery of 7G lose
all of these and many of them even their
lives to achieve that which the boys now
enjoy is it not this fact which makes
a celebration of July possible and the
day wholly different from other dnys of
the year So the juveniles will celebrate
in their own way as will the adults and
in fact the oldest of old people too
Local dealers in firecracker goods have
this year laid in their usual supplies and
for the past three or four day the de
mand for them has been about the same
as in other years thus evincing the fact
that the Fourth of July will continue to
be celebrated as long as it recurs each
year as time moves on
Generally as heretofore places of busi
ness will be closed in observance of the
day The departments of the Government
dismissed the clerks early yesterday af
ternoon in order to enable them to make
preparations for celebrating the glorious
The principal observance of the day will
probably be the exercises field at the Co
lumbia Theatre at 10 o clock under the
ausp cts of the local society of the Sons
of the American Revolution Noble D
Lamer President of the organization will
preside and music will be rendered by the
Marine Band
The Rev Thomas S Chllds D V
chaplain of the society will pronounce an
invocation The colors will be presented
by Compatriot leon L French Viva
LAmerica will be sung by Frank 3
Pierce after which Col Edwin B Hay
will read the Declaration of Indepen
dence The Star Spanzled Banner and
Our Glorious Banner will be played by
the band The oration of the day will be
delivered by the Rev Frank M Bristol
The prayer and benediction will be pro
nounced by Rev Thomas S Child D D
preceded by America by the band
The Society of the Oldest Inhabitants
will hold their meeting as usual and there
will be gathering and exercises conduct
ed by other patriotic societies and organ
izations although there wilf be no general
formal exerchee on the part of the city
There will be but one mail delivery
Among the attractions which Washing
tomans will have an opportunity of en
joying today will be races at Brightwood
Park Several trotting heats are to occur
of which the feature e ent will be a
match race for WOO between the well

the tomb of the Father of iiis Country
and from thvre the trip is a short one
across the river to Marshall Hall on the
tMinr Macalrter and at this famous
rivi r outing place thete is a variety of
araisements and means of recreation
Glen Echo will abso make a strong bid

j Spxa precautions will be taken by
the Fire Department to guard against
hrea today All hreinen with the excep

respective fire houses from S oclock this
morning until S oclock tomorrow morn
Chief Dutton will issue an order today
reducing the number of lire companies
which now reupond to alarms This
action will betaken to protect the horses
The department fear that in the event
of many alarms tomorrow the horbes
Hill become exhausted and the depart
ment incapacitated Three and four
engine boxes in the business portion of
the city will today and during the pres
ent hot spell call out only two companies
instead of the usual r umber Should the
alarm be given for a serious lire tha
police olHcer in control will Immediately
sound a aecond alarm and Uie addi
tional companies will respond In this
manner the horris will be saved in the
case of false alarm and only a few min

The drivers of the trucks and engines
have leen ordered to reduce the ppeed of
their horses when attending fires at a
distance Irom the company house of
more than half a mile The engine horses
liave suffered particularly during the hot
weather on account of the fact that there
is steam in the boilers of the engint s con
stantly The truck house and chemical
engine house re considerably cooler
The city will carefully watched all
day and it Is believed that the work of
the Fire Department will not be heavy
Last year there were but three fires on
July 1 and the aggregate lose resulting
was -very smull All of Uiese llres were
caused by a omlunatioii of small boy
matches and firtiraikirs
Several years ago as thp Fire Depart
ment rfmemii rs was th hardest days

I tiwii uf thi clt ivlulc tin ii pirtiiituL was
on its way to n blaze In an opposite di
rection The entire Fire Department was
out almost all day and the men vero
complete exhausted On that day many
of the horses gave out and the depart
ment was crippled This was at a time
when strict police regulations were In
force and the majority of the fires were
in alleys where celebrants repaired to
evade the police Last year was very
quiet and it is confidently believed that
today will puss off without accident In
the event of a serious fire or numerous
blazes the department Is fully prepared
to meet the emergency
Major Richard Sylvester Superinten
dent of Police believes this will be the
quietest Fourth of July known in Wash
ington for some jears although he
thinks also that very stringent police
regulations sometimes have an opposite
cfltct lroni that desired The recent edict
which has gone forth and which the
police will enforce strictly is the most
rigid in years It prevents the tiring or
the large firecracker tho dynamite bomb
cannon pistols and other producers of
excessive noise
Years ago a pretty big firecracker
didnt make such a loud noise said
Major Svlvestcr yesterday but the an
of manufacturing the explosives has pro
gressed to such an extent since then that
now a very small Uahtly wrapped crack
er produces a blast like a cannon There
is no objection to fireworks proper The
only thing to be suppressed is the noise
producer The police will arrest all vio
lators The- children who commonly
cause a great deal of trouble will be
taken home for punishment by their par
ents when discovered violating the law
Washingtons population is a peculiar
one and it is dltllcult to satisfy every
body In course of time public opinion
will be educated and until then the police
can do very little in abating the fire
cracker nuisance
Fireworks of any description will not he
allowed in the vicinity of hospitals or
residences In which there is illness Sev
eral requests have been made to the Po
lice Department by citizens In whose fam
ilies there is sickness to see that no noise
is permitted within a certain distance of
the sick room in every Instance the de
partment has complied with the request
and so far as iossible firecrackers will
not disturb the sick in Washington this
The number of casualties resulting from
explosives has been steadily on the de
cline for a number of years Drunkenness
due to over celebration has also become
less common on li Jeendence Day in re
cent years If the police able to en
force the order of the Superintendent
Washington tomorrow will be one of the
quietest cities of its population In the
The following order relntlvc to the day

The Postnl Company KUcs Objections
to nn Olllcliil Order
Secretary Root has recelveil from C C
Adams the Superintendent of the Postal
Telegraph Cable Company a protest
against the decision of the War Depart
ment recently made in regard to the
transmission of telegraphic messages
from this country to Cuba
Under tho rules promulgated by tho
department it Is alleged that the United
States officials in charge of tho Cuban
telegraphic lines in Santiago arc directed
to refuse to receive all messages sent
from this country to Cuba by the United
States and Haiti Telegraph Company
which is controlled by the Postal Com
pany This action it is stated will have
tho effect of excluding the Postal Com
pany from participation in the business
of transmitting cable messages to Cuba
In his letter of protest Mr Adams says
We understand that you are about to
pass upon this application of the Inter
national Ocean Telegraph Company and
hence we beg leave to submit tho follow
ing consideration In opposition thereto
This application involves a going busi
ness of three cable companies and one
land line company these cempanies being
the Commercial Cable Company the Pos
tal Telegraph Cable Company the United
States and Haiti Telegraph and Cable
Company and the French Telegraphic
Cable Company
During the years 1S99 and 1900 on the
complaint o this same International
Ocean Telegraph Company which is
owned by the Western Union Telegraph
Company the Commercial Cable Company
was prevented by an order of the War
Department from laying a competing
J cable from thes Unlted States to Cuba
chlelly on the ground of the Foraker
amendment which prohibited the execu
tive department of the Government from
grantliyx any franchises in Cuba
Fortunately the Foraker amendment is
not and cannot be involved in this ap
plication ofthe International Ocean Tele
graph Company or rather of the West
ern Union Telegraph Company No new
cable or new franchises are Involved at all
The lines over which these messages are
transmitted by way of New York Canso
Haiti and Santiago are lines which have
oeen In existence many years and their
legal existence Is not questioned Hence
any complications due to the Foraker
amendment are eliminated from the eures
Our occupation of Cuba is now other
than analogous to a military occupation
of a foreign country in time of war
Since the exchange of ratifications of the
peace treaty it has been an occupation of
a foreign country in time of peace and is
in no way affected internationally speak
ing by the circumstances that the army
has been used as the agency
The application of July 10 1900 of the
International Ocean Telegraph Company
affect3 the existing tralllc of all four of
the companies named above It is an at
tempt of the Western Union Telegraph
Company to use the military power of the
executive branch of the United States
Government in a time of peace to enforce
by peremptory order of the Secretary of
War an alleged monopoly which has been
and is now denied on tho following
First That the grant now owned by
the Western Union Telegraph Company
was obtained by false and fraudulent rep
resentations which appear on the face of
the grant Itself
Second That the grant expired In 18S0
Third That the grant was not an ex
clusive grant
Fourth That there has not been any
legal condonation of the fraud or con
Urination of the grant Moreover the
grant haa never been made exclusive
Fifth That the rules of public policy
as laid down by President Grant relative
to cable monopolies apply to this Cuban

The Lnfnyette Uncle Toms Cnliln
Uncle Toms Cabin wilt have a revival
at the Lafayette Square Opera House next
week when the stock company will be
seen in the venerable classic which exerted
such a potent influence upon American
history nearly half a century ago Not
In eighteen years hns the play been seen
In a first class Washington theatre so
that next weeks production Is expected
to create something of a dramatic sensa
tion and attract people who have not
been to the theatre In many years It is
taken for granted that the older genera
tion who saw tho piny thirty or forty
years ago will relish thia opportunity
of seeing it once more in adequate sur
roundings The younger generation has
had practically no opportunity of seeing
the play and it is therefore expected to
draw large audiences Tho play has been
revived In other cities with such remnrk
able success that the local management
anticipates the biggest attendance of the
season no matter what the weather may
In next weeks production Edwin Ar
den will play George Harris the negro
who escapes from the South and Is pur
sued by bloodhounds Minnie Radcllffe
will be the Eliza whose thrilling escape
across the Ohio River on the cakes of
floating Ice Is one of the notable dramatic
exploits of tho century The full strength
of the Lafayette company will be seen
in the production and in addition a
number of extra people have been special
ly engaged

ments at Chases are being re enforced to

Popularity of Chesapeake Ilencli
Few resorts within the reach of Wasn
ingtonlans possess the popular features
of Chesapeake Beach where are com
bined tho best attractions of the regular
seaside resort with the favorite inland
amusement places The management has
made provisions fo handling immense
crowds today and there is hardly any
doubt but that the transportation facili
ties will be taxed to the utmost as every
body seems to have selected Chesapeake
Beach as the best spot at which to pass
the day The bathing is splendid while
the band concerts by the Haley Band otLo
age musical affairs commonly heard at
similar resorts The new system or
bringing excursionists into the city in
stead of depositing them at the Junction
as was done formerly is a very popular
move and one that has evidently met
with the decided approval of those who
visit the Beach The transportation to
and from the Beach as at present ar
ranged is unsurpassed and makes a
trip to Chesapeake Beach a real pleas
ure There will be many special features
for the entertainment of the visitors to
this resort today and it will be a most
captious person who will- be unable to
llnd something that will please
