ISpeclnl Correnpomtonce.l WAStiiNOTON, June 11. A good talker Is n Joy foruvcr, If ho only knows when to talk, what to talk about, and when to stop; and, in my opinion, 11 limn who has not tlioso accomplishments can never Ik; really mul truly a Rood talker, no matter bow Rlib IiIh tongue or how brilliant Ida rhetoric. Washington is full of good talkers Ono of tho best of thorn is Uen ernl CNwoy, chief of engineers in tho war department, and tho man who won fame by putting tho half finished Washington monument on stilts while a new founda tion was placed under it, General Casey completed tho great shaft, too, aud a proud day it was for him when ho stood up thero in a galo of wind and superin tended tho capping or tho obelisk with the block of aluminium, 1 called on tho general ono day to make inquiry about hii opinion of tho department of justice concerning a war department case in which I was interested, "Tho opinion has not reached us yet," said General Casey, "and of course 1 don't know what it will 1h. But 1 am afraid it will bo just the ru verso of what wo want. Wo tiro sadly degenerating in this matter of law opinions, anyway. Vears ago when wo felt it necessary to call on tho attorney general for an opin ion wo indicated to him what kind of an opinion wo wanted, and generally got it That is ono of tho beauties of tho law it is an clastic science: and it is this which makes mo admire it so much, ac customed as 1 am to tho exactness of architecture nud engineering, I remem ber that some years ago. shortly after whs buue, war anil navy building was completed, congressmen raised a great ado because there was a solid partition between the central and southern parts of tho structure. Senators nud repre sentatives used to rush down hero to see tho secretary of war about some river or harbor improvements, and then they would go over to ask tho secretary of the navy for a job in ono of tho navy yards for some patriotic constituent. But when thoy started for tho ofllco of tho secretary of state to seo about that consulship they ran plumb up against a stone wall. "One day a senator bolted into my room and oxclaimed: 'This is an outrage! There's tho state department about twen ty feet away, under this roof, but in or der to get to it I must go out in tho rain and walk about a block to another en trance. Too much blasted exclusiveness about this state department to suit me. In putting up this building, why did you fellows go and wall the state department off by itself? 'Simply becanso you fel lows that made the law authorizing the construction of tho building required us 10 uo so,' i replied. 'Well, can't you change tr 'Oh, yes, if wo can get tho authority. The partitions are simply oncK piugs oetween the columns, and wo can knock them out in a hurry if congress will direct us to do so. Tho senator thought we could knock tho par titions out without authorization by con gress, but in order to mako suro wo asked tho department of justice for a legal opinion. "Dovens was attorney general then, and when I took tho matter to him ho said, for all tho world like a bank cashier giving you currency for a check, 'How will you have it?' 'Have what?' said I. 'Why, tho opinion of tho department of justice?' 'Can I have it any way I want it?' 'Certainly.' 'Then I'll tako it for removal of tho partitions.' I got it, too, and that's tho way in which tho state de partment had it's brick wall torn down and lost tho architectural exclusiveness in which it formerly took so much pride. "But this was not tho onlycauso I have had for admiration of the elasticity and adaptability of tho law," continued General Casey. "Three or four years ago a bridge case of u complicated nnt uro came up for disposition by this de partment Wo asked the department of justice for a legal opinion. Mr. Garland was attorney general, and as ho hap pened to kuow that tho president bud taken some interest in the case, the wily purveyor of legal lore concluded to tako no chances of having a wrong opinion. So he prepared threo opin ions, each different from tho others, and with tho threo opinions in his inside pocket marched over to Uio Whito House, equipped for any emergency. A few minutes' conversation showed him what Mr. Cleveland's viows wero iu the premises, and hen lie pulled out the opinion which fitted the case." A famous talker is Dr. Elliott Coues, tho noted Theosophist. Dr. Coues lives in a boautiful homo near tho president's church, and his parlors aro tho Theo- sophlcal court at tho national capital. Ho uumoers ins touowers by tho score, and while thoy aro chiefly women they are very urigut women, restless, studious mid more or less emotional. Almost any hour of the day one of them may be eeen in the doctor's parlors, drawing in spiration from tho high priest of Theos ophy. In the opinion of a majority of these women Dr. Coues is about the greatest man that has lived binco Ch:ist, but it is odd that many of them dtvliue to agreo with him in Ills denunciation of the late Mine. Bluvutsky as n fraud. Dr. Coues' fierce opposition to Bluvut sky is well known, and his expressions concerning her wero the cause of a libel suit instituted ngainst him by th late Hypatia of occultism. The women who look up to Coues also admire Bluvatskv, I suppose because Bluvutsky was of their own sex, for one of lio surest signs wo have of woman's growth iu power is her increasing tendency to stand by woman. It is not surprising that Dr. Cone wields it magnetic influence over his du ciples, for he is a remuikablo man. lit is a gifted talker. I sat for an hour ami a half one recent evening talking with him of Blavatsky that is, 1 did the listeuiug. Dr. Coues attended to toe talking. When Dr. Coues talks at his best ho becomes exceedingly emotional, and physically as well as mentally is At high tension. At a signal from tho philosopher, woll understood by a col ored servant, the latter places on a chair by tho doctor's sido a porcelain jar con taining Egyptian tobacco and rlco pa per. Tho doctor seizes n slip of tho pa per, pinches out with dainty touch a half thimbleful of tho tobacco, and with deft fingers and delicate motions rolls him self a cigarette. Then be walks rapidly a few times around tho room, lighting his cigarette with a perfumed wax match as bo walks, and finally sits down, his "mood" on', his eyes rolling llko an ori ental's, and talks. It is talk worth hearing, yon may bo suro perfect in rhetoric, graphic In coloring, logical in form, warm with imagination. Every ilvo minutes an other ciguretto, each as daintily rolled and as daintily manipulated us its prede cessor. Every ten minutes another turn about tho apartment If, porchanco, the doctor sits down iu another part of the room tho watchful serving man slips softly in from tho hull, removos tho por celain jar of tobacco and rico paor to u chair by his master's side and glides as softly away. Threo or four removes of tho occult philosopher, as many transfers of tho tobacco jar from chair to chair, a dozen cigarettes, aud tho listener, by this tltno thoroughly en rapport, half awako and dreaming, half charmed and half mystified, is ready to indorse Theos ophy or predestination or pre-oxlsteuce or anything else which Dr. Coues may recomuicud.. Ono of the very best talkers in Wash ington is a newspaper man named Stor ctt plain Bill Sterett, of Texas. Ho doesn't know any more about Thcosophy or occultism thun ho does about tho kind of fish thoy catch in tho moon, but ho knows human nature, which is a good deal bettor. He can tell a now story or narrate somo hitherto unknown but marvelous cxpcrlouco of his every story truo and every oxpcrlcnco actual each quarter hour. Many of his stories aro of tho newspaper business, hunting and fishing, but thoy huvo no pooicr fla vor for that. William E. Curtis, who was formerly a newspaper man, but is now one of Mr. Blaine's trusted lieutenants iu tho stato department, is keen observer, has been a great traveler, possesses a memory Hko that of a stereotypo plate, and Is a first rato talker. Ho works llko a steam engine and talks llko n dynamo. 1 asked him the other day how old his pretty little daughter Elsio was, mid ho said ten years como July 2. "That recalls to mo,", he wont on, "ono of the most harrowing exiieriences I have over hud. Ton years ago I was managing editor of tho Chicago Inter Ocean. The night of tho 1st of July 1 had been up till daylight, running back ward and forward between my house and the office. I had just got nicely to sleep in tho morning when a messengor rang tho doorbell and they roused mo and put into my hands a noto which read, "President Garfield has just been shot in Washington." In fifteen min utes I was at tho office, writing mes sages and giving directions. An hour later a telephonic messugo summoned mo homo imperatively. I had been in the house but a littlo while when word camo from tho offico that I must report at once, as tbf compositors hud gono on strike. "Back to tho offico I wont, and had a conference with tho business manager aud with a commlttco from tho men, and fulling to reach an agreement, organized a plan to get now men and mako sure of tho publication of a paier tho following morning. Thon I rushed homo again, and at tho critical moment thero was onco more summoned post haste to the offico by tho startling intelligence that a mob was threatening tho building. In those duys Tho Inter-Ocean was a strong stalwart organ, and some of tho peoplo got tho idea in their heads that certain political editorials which wo had printed wero indirectly responsible for the assas sination. To ndd fuel to tho flames, tho first dispatches had it that our corre spondent in Washington, Mr. Byron An drews, was Guiteuu's accomplice. "Of courso Mr. Andrews had nothing more to do with the killing of Garfield thun you hud, oxcept that he chanced to bo in the railway station nnd an eye wit noss of the tragedy. But tho peoplo wero excited and fierce, aud a howling mob had gathered in front of tho office, hoot ing and threatening. 1 nearly killed a cab horse in rushing to the office, and there throw up a window and made a littlo speech to tho crowd, telling them tho facts and begging them not to block up the streets. The mob slowly dis persed, and after some moro troublo about tho striko and tho getting of new printers I hastened homo to fiud myself a father. So you seo I huvo abundant reason to remember July 3."
