LETTER FMI TIEMTI0II1L CAPITAL Wu Ting Fang Booked for Retirement -Aided Us at Time of the Boxer Troubles-GoocLSalad Story. ItfV-rfr V I (fSi J I Wi ret,re from Dubllc ,lfe and Participation in oriental Lvnfc If I 1 politics. Mr. Wu's efforts to introduce modern sors had ever been able to reach. He had adapted himself to American ways and manners and only remained a Chinaman in religion and dress. It looked as though Mr. Wu was having everything his own way and that he was estab lishing a bond between the two governments that was bound to result to tne benefit of both. At the height of his popularity and apparent usefulness here the summons came from the Imperial throne at Peking for Mr. Wu to return to China. This was a severe blow to the diplomat, but he never gave any outward evidence of how it affected him. The minister, who had become whose face was the most familiar of any foreigner's in official circles, did not know when that summons came whether he was to be decorated with a pea cock feather or to have his head lopped off his shoulders at the crooking of the finger of the queen' dowager. He did not question the order, but obeyed. FORMER MINISTER WU TING-FANG MANY-SIDED CHARACTER. c-b passed without a word from Minister Conger at Peking, and when the very worst was expected, Minister Wu went to the state department and quietly informed Mr. Hay that he would undertake to get a message through to Min ister Conger and get a reply. Some other government officials advised against trusting the Chinaman with such a believed in Mr. Wu and was willing and given to Mr. Wu, and within a same channels, from MinUter Conger, dence of authenticity, all of which correct. A FAMOUS- EPICURE AND FAMO drinking line to lovers of good victuals. He has often said that his three specialties were the oyster, the canvas back duck and the terrapin. These, he considered the Creator's finest gifts to mankind. On his bill of fare there were 200 oyster dishes, many of which could not be duplicated In any other place. It was the height of bliss for Harvey to bo given an order to prepare a good dinner for some of his congenial spirits. He would select the oysters, grown in his own special beds In the Chesapeake, then he 'would pick a 'dia mond back terrapin which now sell for $109 a dozen and Anally would pick out the canvas back duck. With these three dishes George Harvey would construct a banquet that would make Lucullus' mouth water. There was nobody in Washington in Harvey's time who was a better judge of terrapin than he. No one could Impose upon him the Pennsylvania terrapin that are as plentiful as snapping turtles. He would have none but the real article, the diamond back from Maryland waters. Harvey went to Paris a few years ago and, Bomeone sounding his praises as an expert in making a salad dressing, two French epicures, who believed tnemselves masters of that art, challenged the Washlngtoulan to a contest 'The challenge was accepted and the contest came oTf in a restaurant. After each one bad mixed his dressing Harvey took a small leather case out of his pocket, picked out a little bottle and let a drop or two ot colorless liquid fall on the salad. The Judges decided in favor' of his dressing as they maintained that the last Ingredients gave it an indefinable aroma. When- Harvey was asked by his friends afterwards what he had dropped Into' the ualad, he said: "Nothing but a little plain water out of the pump. I knew the Frenchmen were Imaginative and I thought I would appeal to them. Apparently I did." MUST NOT MARK UNCLE SAM'S Ml collector's office, using a $100 bill, the cashier who received the money wrote something on' the corner of tho note. Upon being interviewed by the twret service men the cashier admitted writing the names of the firms on bll:s of big denominations. He said that he was new to his job and was not very familiar with big bills. In order to protect himself If any of them should ever be proved to bo counterfeit he made it a rule to mark, every bill of $50 or over with the name of the man from whom It was received. . ,'- Th secret service men gave the young cashier a heart to heart talk and suggested that a better way to Identify the bill was to take down its checU number-on a separate slip of paper. The name of the last holder of the bill could very easily be placed opposite the identification number and in the event of trouble he would be Just as well protected as though he had writ ten the name of the concern all over the faces and backs of the bills, The young man was considerably frightened when he loarned that he had been violating the laws of the United States, and on his promise to desist from "the practice in the future he was not In any way punished for his ignorance. . v WASHINGTON. There Is much regret felt In Washington over the news that comes from Peking uini.tAi. Wn Tlne-fanz is about to Ideas in tne government oi unina nuvo uui u very successful and he is now on a Journey to visit the tombs of his father's! preparatory to retiring on his fortune at Shanghai. There have been strong hopes among Mr. Wu's old. friends here that this shrewd, forceful Chinese statesman would be able to engraft some of the modern western ideas upon the conservatism of the Celes tial Kingdom. The departure of Minister Wu from Washing ton is still well remembered. He had been a par ticularly conspicuous figure In diplomatic circles and had made a place that none of his predeces extremely popular in a social way and " Mr. Wu was a many-sided character and excited both confidence and distrust during hl3 stay in Washington as the representative of China. There were many diplomats who were ' disposed to regard with" suspicion every move made by the Chinaman and especially to look askance upon hla cultivation of Americans. There were some offi cials in our government who had a similar feel ing. But away up in the highest ranks of the administration, with tle late President McKlnley and the late Secretary of State John Hay, Mr. Wu was received with confidence. Mr. Hay was very fond of this brilliant oriental and never had causa to regret placing trust in him. One of the most Interesting chapters in the history of the" Boxer troubles in 1900 was the faithfulness of Mr. Wu and the manner in which he made eood all promises. When weeks had message, but Mr. Hay replied that he to trust him. The message was written week a reply was received, though the written in code and bearing every evl was afterwards proven to be absolutely US RESTAURANT. Next in interest to the "passing of Wu" to old Washingtonlans is the passing of George Wash ington Harvey, one of the most famous epicures and restaurant keepers thl3 city ever knew. The name of Harvey Is cotemporary with that of the late John Chamberlain, prince of hosts and enter tainers and ben vlvant of international reputation. Harvey's has been known for 50 years as the one place In Washington where the best of sea food could always be relied upon. It was he that made "steamed oysters" famous the country through. His broiled lobster and diamond back terrapin were no less noted and strangers in the capital city never felt that their visit was complete "with out taking a meal at Harvey's famous restaurant Harvey has sold out his business and has re tired. He Is a little short and very fat old man, who for 50 years has catered In the eating and MONEY. Chief Wllkle, of the secret servh;e, has run down another money mystery. Some t;me ago the subtreasurer at Chicago discovered tb.it all the bills of large denominations' coming from the col lector of customs at Detroit bore tho names of business firms In Ink. The statutes distinctly pro hibit, the printing,' writing or Impressing of any characters on any of Uncle Sam's money. Agents of Mr. Wllkle visited Detroit where these big bills came from, but it was some timo before fcny clew was obtained to the party who did the writing on the money. It was noticed that the writing was all in the same hand and that no bills of less than $69 were marked with the names of the business firas. At last the mystery was cleared up. A clerk in one of the Importing concerns at Detroit happened to remember that when he made a payment et the There) la no Reohill Calta, Alum,.
