The Man Who Delights In rosing llefore PmoKftrn lu Horse Cars. "Do yoM sec that man standing in the center of the car? said a conductor on the Columbus avenue line to a Boston Herald reporter the other day while on a down-town trip about ten o'clock in .he morning. "Yes; anything usual about him?" "Only that he is stuck on himself." "How does he show it?" "By declining to take a seat when passcftger leaves. I have been watch lng him now for three or four weeks. If there are a number of ladies In the car when he enters he insists on standing. notwithstanding the amount of vacant space at his disposal.

"If there is a pretty girl in the car he manages to get oh near her as possible, so that when the ear sways in taking a curve ne can jostle against her ana go through the street-car etiquette of lut ing his hat and begging her pardon. "If he enters a car that is sparsely occupied, and no ladies are present, he takes a seat as close to the door as he can, in order to be the first one to rise when a lady does eome in. The thank you' he receives for his disguised cour tesy he interprets as a recognition of his ' personal attractiveness, and his actions during the remainder of the trip are based on this presumption. If the lady should by chance happen to loon toward him it adds strength to his false supposition and additional height to bis mountain of conceit. When she leaves the car he follows her with his eyes until she is out of sight, with the hope that she will turn and give him some sign of recognition. "It makes little difference to men of this character how often they are made to feel the sting of their own conceit as it is without apparent effect." WORLD OF SPORTS.

THE WATE1U3U11Y EVENING DEMOCRAT. FRIDAY, WASHINGTON TOPICS Efforts to Induce Germany tc Admit American Pork. NO ULTIMATUM HAS BEEN ISStTED Mr. Blaine Denies that the President In tends to Shut Out German Importa ' Italy In a Dilemma Over the New Orleans Affair The State Department Hay Ask an Apology The Revenue Cutter Bear to Go . on a Dual Mission Gen. - Johnston Better Carter Reappointed Minister. Q Washington, March 20. Secretary Blaine said to-day that he knew nothing about the published reports that the United States intended to institute re taliatory proceedings against Germany, in case that country refused to admit American perk. No pronunciamento, he said, looking to the exclusion of German imports had been issued. , Private Secretary Halford also said he knew nothing about the President con templating such retaliatory proceedings. The President simply directed Secretary Blaine to call the attention of our Minis ters in Germany and France anew to the subject and try to reach some tangible result. He expects to reach results through the usual diplomatic channels and not by the sudden presentation of an ultimatum proposing the prohibition of German and French imports into this country if Germany and France do not yield at once to our demands. The Mc kinley bill is about as far as the adminis tration will ge at present in the direction of prohibition. The President has the power, however, by the Meat Inspection act to go beyond the McKinley bill and shut out German and French imports altogether, and the fact that he has it will be impressed on Ministers Phelps and Beid with instruc tions to impress it upon the Foreign Min isters of Germany and France. Both Mr. Phelps and Mr. Keid have already brought the subject of discrimination against American meats to the attention of the German and French governments and have received some encouraging assur ances. THE NEW ORLEANS AFFAIR. Mr. Blalno May Submit Some of the Grlev ances of the United States. Washington-, March SO. In diplomatic eiroles it is regarded that it would be just as well if the Italians throughout the country would abandon the idea of pub lic meetings on account of the New Orleans affair. The men who were put to death on Saturday last were not executed be cause they were Italians, but because they were assassins, and their continued existence would have been a menace to the peace and safety of society. There is no more reason why Italians should work themselves up over the matter than that Greeks or Turks should. In the course of the correspondence with the Italian government, it is to be anticipated that Mr. Blaine will feel called upon to submit some of the griev ances of the United States in this connec tion. If Italy has a right to Interfere in behalf of her subjects, or alleged sub jects, she must at the same time admit responsibility for some of their actions. There has as yet, unless we accept the charge to the grand jury at New Orleans, been no official account of the occur rences of Saturday. AH the information upon the subject has been derived from the newspapers. According to the news paper Veports, when the acquittal of the assassins by the jury which tried them was announced, Italian sailors in the port of New Orleans trampled and heaped other indignities upon the American flag. If these accounts are verified, it will be Mr. Blaine's duty to demand reparation for the insult. As this insult preceded the killing of the criminals, Italy must first apologize to us for before expecting any expressions of regret on our part. The flag of the United States waves from the too of a lofty signal pole on the river front of the city. Not satisfied with turning the American flag upside down on the masts of their vessels and hoisting their own flag above it, these Italians tore the flag from the signal pole where it fluttered as the emblem of national authority, and ran up their own flag in its stead. Undoubtedly such acts as these intensi fied popular indignation and prompted the men who met at the foot of the Clay statue to let it be known that American justice and American authority would in one way or another strike the stiletto from the cowardly hands which use it only in ambush or in darkness. A Dual Mlislon. Wasbtvoton, March 20.

The men were carried to their homes, but there is no hope for the recovery of Zimmerman and Faust, and Lindermuth' life hangs on a thread. AN OFFER TO EVA. Mm.

They have, nevertheless, offered me $60,000 to settle ail matters witn them. "Upon the advice of my attorney I posi tively refused to accept this amount. I shall not think of a settlement for less than 175,000."

LINGO'S CASE GOES TO THE JUXtY. To Produce an Effect Counsel for the Pris oner Outs Himself With a Kazor. The Kegro Ties Up the Gaping Wound An Intimation from the Defence that Mrs. Miliar Was Killed by Her Sister and Her Husband A Verdict Expected To nightGreat Excitement at Camden. Camden, . N. J., March 20. The last words have been spoken in the Miller murder trial, and it is believed that Lingo will know his fate before he retires for another night's rest. . Mr. Westcott's speech was very bril liant. In the course of his argument he handled the razor with wh ich the crime is alleged to have been committed with such recklessness as to call forth a warn ing from Judge Garrison. After declar ing that if the wounds had been made with the razor it would have been dulled, he thereupon, to prove that it was sharp, drew it across the back of his own hand, making a deep cut. This is the second time this lawyer has subjected himself to physical pain to produce an effcot. Whether it will result as desired with the jury, or arouses the suspicion of desper ate resources, remains to be seen. After cutting himself he asked Lingo to bind the wound. Judge Westbrook said that the State had proved neither the time or place of the murder. He then went on in an elo quent manner to advance the theory that Mrs. Miller was killed at home by her sister and her husband, and the body carted to where found. He created a sen sation by declaring that no male fiend ever conceived the crime, aud no male mind ever placed the dead woman's hand kerchief and gloves where found by the body. In closing he significantly said: "Did Mrs. Miller go out of that brush lot alive. and go home that night? That is a ques tion that is going to be answered sooner or later. And if she did, what did she see t Frank Lingo, you are an innocent man. Gentlemen, your duty is plain." There is a great crowd in and about the court house, and there is much guessing on the verdict. THE LILLA HOYLE MYSTERY. Another Tumult of Excitement Over the Sensational Murder. Webster, Mass., March 20. The whole country about here is in a tumult of ex citement over a possible end of the famous Lilla Hoyle mystery of three years ago through a statement of the wife of Andrew Hoyle, the uncle of the murdered girl, who reiterates the confes sion of Alice Hoyle, Lilla's sister, which" implicated McQuaid and Cowie with herself in Lilla's murder, and tells an almost incredible story of her hus band's conduct toward her and his infat uation for Alice, which has already broken up the family. The majority of the townspeople believe Alice guilty of what she has confessed, while others think that another prevarication must be added to her already extensive list. Mrs. Hoyle did not doubt that Alice told the truth when she made her con fession. She does not doubt it to-day. One day Alice and Mrs. Hoyle went out for a walk. Their steps took them in the direction of the north village. They reached a place just at this side of the bridge, when Alice stopped and impress ively said: "It was just about here that Lilla screamed that night and some one stran gled her." Then she examined the locality a little more closely and added: "Yes, it was just about here." . Andrew Hoyle is a person of much in terest now. There is a feeling that, if he dared to show himself, he could come forward and explain a good many things. No one knows whether he is aware of the whereabouts of Alice, but it is thought that if he is it should not deter him from acknowledging something. Some per sons think that he is still in Worcester County, while others say that he is not in the State. Kw York's Prison Superintendent. Albany. N. Y.. March 20. It is ru mored that R.
