OUR WASInNJ GT4N LETTER.
I is but natural that the coun try should wish to know more of the latest Presidential candidate, Belva Lockwood, the nom inee of the Woman's Rights party. ?hi candidate's life, written by an-Im' partial hand, as the only means for completely supplying'this de mand, will doubtless appear at an early day. Here in Washington any book of the kind is needed. She is to be seen almost every (lay treading the streets mounted on t ricy ale, head erect, and feet work ing with an energy which is in:li - cative of the secret of her success in life. She- was the first of her sex to mount the tricycle an i de demonstrate the right of woman to ride whatever her business calls and she also rides for the pleasure it affords, as others do in their car riages, and how she does ride! No laggard's pace is hers. where ever she goes she is the observed of all observers. She is not a de. votee of fashion in any respect. She sets her own fashions. With head in air and face earnestly, not to say fiercely, pointing in the di rection her industrious feet are propelling her she whirls along., eyery turn of the crank flipflaping her skirt with unceasing regularity. She stops at nothing, and turns aside only to pass slower goers or pick a stretch of clear track where on to display a pace which might make Maud S. envious. Of late a demand has sprung up, for pictures of the Woman's Rights cand(idate. In preparing to supply this demand the artist has been at a loss how to take her. Blaine is generally represented as speaking in the House or Senate, C'leveland as standing on the ros trum, Logan as cavorting~ on his1 war-horse, each in a position de signedl to show thec man at his best. Reflectinig on these things the artist was not long in coming to the conclusion that the proper thing was to represent Belva mounted1 on a tricycle, a familiar sight in Pennlsylvania. avenue, where as any one will say, she too, appears at her b~est. T1he pictures it is understood, will b)e ready at1 an early day. She might have been taken pleading at the bar ; laying down the law as any man should, and often better than men do; giving tit for tat after the custom of the profession; taking graceful flights of oratory, as ora tors sometimes do, responsive to a suggestion from the bench, citing precedents and eases, principles and p)ractice from a well-stored repository of learning covered by that well known bnnnet, r .. ing to the jury for justice for her client. But after due considera tion the tricycle idea was a-lopted as not (0ly the most novel, but the most truiely characteristic. The General Land Oice has been investigating the appropria~ tion of the public lands, and it has been discovered that upwards of 5,000,000 acres of the public domain have been illegally fencel in, in Colorado, New Mexico, Ne braska, Wyoming, Kittsas. Neva da, by large cattle companies, many of which are English and Scotch. The large corporations gobble the lan(d and the poor men and actual setlers are exhlded. It is to be hoped thiat the com. missioner will wake a clean job of it, and routs the illegal holders. Other nonopolies are bad enough, but when it comes to the people's heritage the public lands being monopolized by a few capitalist, it is time to halt. Presi:lent 'Ar thur hais, it is sai.1, settled] the va can -v in the Cabin(t. lIle has vir tually off'ered the poSt of See'y of the Treasury to (en. Gresham The latter is willing to take the place. Grcsham's transfer will :robably make Frank Hatton Postm-tster-General. as it is un-ler. stood t'it the President is anxious to reward Hatton especially well for his good work at Chic.go. A Western relublican ('ongress man who reached here th's mfor ning had a long t-alk a few days since with ex-Gov-ernor St. John, the prohibition candicate for Pres ident. Mr. St. John told him that both re)ublicans an I democi-ats would be utterly surprised at the vote wIich he would poll. lie con fidently predictd that the prohi bition vote would reach a million, if not more. lie estimated tbat in his own State of K~ansas his vote would be 40,000, and was certamn it would be 50,000 in New York State. lie also thought that the prohibitioners would effect the re sult in Wisconsin, Michigan, iowa, and Ohio. lie characterized Blaine's dodging issuie in Maine as not only a cowardly, but a very silly act, and one that had receiv ed1 the unmixed contempt of those who are on both sidesB of the ques tion. AUGUST. HE INSULTED PAPA.-'Emmna, I hear you have broken off with George.' 'Yes, I am sorry, but it had to be. He insulted papa.' 'Why. what did he do?' 'Well, you know, last Sunday night, papa kinder kicked him off the steps, and when he came round Monday he brought a pair of slip pers, with the toes padded, and asked me if I wouldn't get the old man to put them on.'
