Tim litiiilly f Mott Kinltti, Ihci lliiunlliui
Ono neeember evening it little over
eight years ago tho literary society of
Washington met at the residence of
Mrs. .lean Davenport Lauder.aquaintold
fashioned white fiamohouso not far from
thocapitol. Oeneral Hnwloy presided,
nud many other distinguished men and
women wero present. To mo ono of
tho most interesting was a plump little
woman with a bright, attractive face,
crowned with wavy gray hair combed
back from a broad, low forehead. This
was Mrs. Mott Hmltli. I sat beside hex
for souio tlmo and listened with delight
to her pleasant voice telling mo about
her homo in Honolulu. It all seemed
very wonderful and new, nud such n
long way off I And now wo are talking
about annexation, and tlio young Princess
Kaiulani is protesting against it.
Dr. Mott Smith was then a special
commissioner from Hawaii. 1 don't re
member whether ho and Mrs. Smith kept
house (u Washington that winter or not,
but they did tlio next winter in a large,
plain house on I street. This agreeablo
family attracted tho best people in tho
city and tho distingulshedstranger with
in her gates, so that ono was sure, even
at tho least formal evening at this house,
to meet moro than ono personage of po
litical or literary distinction.
An interesting feature of that big,
pleasant parlor was a "Hawaiian cor
ner," with a fine collection of photo
graphs of the royal family and many
points of interest. Thero wero instru
ments of various kinds, specimens of na
tive huidiwork, some of the itouutiful
feather work, strings of tho loeliest
shells nnd many things which I cannot
now describe.
Dr. Mott Smith, a native of Now York,
wont when quite young to Hawaii. His
wifo was born In Honolulu of New Eng
land parents. Sho received most of her
education in this country nnd has mndo
the trip to and from Hawaii many times.
Her children wero born in her nntivo
city, nud thero was a houseful when they
wore all at homefour girls nnd threo
boys. Then this charming family went
away in pursuit of knowledge, which
to them was a paetimo, not a hardship.
Tho eldest two girls spent two years in
Dresden studying German and music,
nud tho rest wero scattered for nwliile.
About four years ago they got together
In Boston and sot up n homo there, whero
tho younger memliers pursuo their stud
ies, while tho elders come and go as bus!
nets or pleasure calls.
Mrs. Mott Smith Is now very much of
an Invalid, and her social duties nro dis
charged by her second daughter, Myra,
n pretty girl, with soft, golden brown
hair, dark, golden brown eyes nnd fnir
complexion. Sho is as bright nnd clever
as sho is good looking, nnd ns natural and
unaffected as thouchoolgirl of seven years
Ida, the third daughter, who might
easily bo taken for Myra, so much does
sho resemble her, graduated with many
honors from tho Harvard annex some
tlmo ago. Her knowledge of mathe
matics especially is something quite won
derful for a girl, but bIio does not con
sider hor education finished and is now
taking a "post-post" couro.

Wamhnoton, April fl. There is very
nmnl) chance for u poor man to win
fame In tho higher ranks of the Ameri
can diplomatic son Ice, Tho first clais
missions can 1m hold only by men who
nro nble to spend each joar a lingo sum
from their private purses. I.x-Soc rctury
Ilayard, for instance, will pay dearly for
tho honor of being tho first embassador
tills nation over sent acrons tho water.
At London ho will receive a salary of
fl7,r(K) a year, anil his expense will
probably bo Just about twice this sum.
When Mr. i'lielpsuas minister at Lon
don and ex-(lovernor Waller of Connect
icut consul geiieial at the same place,
tlio minister and the consul general oc
casionally compared uotetou their finan
cial status. Ono day after a com creation
on this topic Miuistei Phelps proponed
to Waller that they exchange places dur
ing tlio remaining two) ears that they
oxpeeted to remain there. "Yon see
Waller." said ho, "I get a salary of $ I?.
n()0a)ear and siienil a little moie than
!I5,(M)0 a year, as I dWcowr by looking
over my bankbook. On the other hand,
you take in, salary and fees together,
about f 10.(100 a year, and j on say your
living expeiiKOH do not much exceed $1,
000 a month So, if you will agree, we'll
simply exchange places for tho next two
years, and that will bring us both out
even What do you say?"
When congress gavo the president
tho power to send an embassador to
countries sending an embassador hither,
it did not authorize any incteate in the
salary, and henco Embassador llayatd
nud Embassador Eustis and the other
embassadors. If we have any, will hnvo
to meet tho demands upon their moro
oxnltod rank out of their own pockets.
Franco and England, an tho other hand,
nllow their embassadors u good deal
moro monoy ior year than they do
their mere ministers, nnd it is be
hoved Sir Julian Pauneefoto's salary
and allowances from the British gov
orumotit ns embassador at Washington
will run well up toward $70,000 a year.
Tho British minister at tho City of
Mexico is allowed about fiO.OOO a
all told, nnd ho sends it all, or nearly
all. in sumptuous entertnlnlng. The din
ners which ho gives in tho Mexican cap
ital uro described ns truly royal, and their
richness quito puts In tho shndo tho ef
forts of our jioorly paid representative at
that capital. A few j ears ago our min
ister to Mexico woh paid only $t2,000 a
year, but miuistor after minister finding
it impossible to maintain the dignity of
tho United States on that sum without
plunging himsolf into bankruptcy con
gress very reluctantly raised tho mission
to the first class.
If Minister Gray goes into entertain
ing at nil and it is difficult to sou how
ho can avoid doing so nud hopo to main
tain a status which will bo satisfactory
to himself nud his government he will
find his salary of $17,500 a year scant
enough. That looks like n big sum of
money to most of us, but it doesn't go
very far with a foreign minister. Besides,
Mexico has ono of tho gayest nnd most
prodigal capitals in tho world. All tho
wealth of that country nearly is owned
In tho City of Mexico. It is a laud of
glorious climate, soil and resources, but
teems with poverty stricken millioiu.
Tho wealth is controlled by a few. nnd
theso fortunate families live in splendor
in the capital city.
Thero is littlo or no manufacturing in
tho country, and excessive import taxes
nro levied ujion everything bought in
the United States or Europe. For in
stance thero nro no breweries in Mex
ico, nnd the imported beer costs .10 cents
a bottlo. No wine is produced in tho
country, nnd as tho rich will hnvo wiuo
. they find it necesMiry to pay enormous
.prices. Tho truth is, 1 wouldn't take
; tho Mexican mission us a gift. In addi
tion to the necessity of spending all of
I ouo's salary and throwing in his time ns
worth nothing, ono iniibt run euormpus
' chances of ending his days there. The
' city has no drainage. It lies reeking in
tho accumulated tilth of centuries. Who
would want to leave tho glorious United
States and Iho in u hole like that four
years simply for tlio purpose of acquir
ing a littlo fame?
Much more seusiblo would it bo for n
man to stay at homo and dovoto his
energies to something for tho benefit of
his fellow man. Tako. as an example,
tho coso of Professor Langley, secretary
of tho Smithsonian institution. For
several years this man bus devoted his
great learning and his wonderful energy
to tho development of a flying mnchino.
He spends his days at the institution
earning the salary which is paid him,
nnd he does earn it too. But I don't be
lieve ho would admit a cabinet minister
to his house in tho evening. After din
ner is tho golden hour which ho devotes,
and which ho has devoted for sovcrul
years, to work upon his dovico. All
social invitations, all tho fleeting vanities
of tho world, ho eschews with tho rigor
If n religious ri'(-lue Ho has no tlmo
f ir filoht Lift' is too short with this
man to w HHti an hour that might bo de
oted to rcieuce Is it not admirable?
Of course it Is. and tho results of all
this self denial, of all this labor, aro
likely to astonish the world nud nii'ko
Professor Langley ono of tho most famous
men of his time. Tho progress which ho
has mndo with his fhing machine ho
guards as more or less of a secret, but I
sin able to tell you that within a yerr or
so ho will without much doubt solvo
this problem of problems. Ho Is building
n Hying machine that will fly. Years of
study convinced Professor Langley that
flight could not bo effected by means of
a balloon. So Professor Langley set out
to build nn aeroplane n flying mnchino
which should fly by virtue of tho impact
of itself in motion against the surround
ing ntiiKHphcro, Countless experiments
haebieu mndo in this direction also,
but all have failed for lack of proper ad
jitstinent of weights and nhscm o of tho
in cessai y power. 1 Ie desorv es famo and
is almost i uro to attain it.
Thero aro many dilTcrcet wavs of at
taining fame. Home men acquire it, and
others have it thrust upon them As an
example of tho latter, take tho eno of
Judge Mnguiro of San Fiiiuciseo, who it
coming down here as a member of con
gress .Fudge Maguire won fame with a
single dory. It was not much of a story
either, but its success lay in tlio applica

organisation that 1 know mi) thlngabout,

gle taxer.
1 hardly know what single taxing is
myself, and yet confess to a great deal of
admiration for theso men who, out of
pure earnestness of conviction, very lovo
of their principles, aro going forth to try
to couquor. tt happens that n great
many people can't see through the single
tax doctrino. No matter how clearly it
may be explained to them, they fail to
hco tho point. And yet it is claimed
when thoy do seo it they hoott all at once,
and with such vividness that the impres
sion is left upon their minds ever after
ward It was in illustration of this that
.ludgo Maguire told the story which
made him famous I will try to tell his
story for him
"Before n show window in San Fran
cisco a crowd was gathered looking at a
picturo there displayed A placard by
tho side of the picture bore these words-
I do vou si:r. thi: i
"I (this is .lodge Maguiro's story, re
member) looked and looked and couldn't
bco any cat. I twisted my head this way
and that, shut one cuuiud then the oth
er, called nil my powers of imagination
forward, but the agile cat eluded mo.
Concluding that the thing was a humbug
nnd that there was no cat in tho pic
turo, 1 walked away, feeling that the
shopkeeper had imposed upon me. A
good many people aie the same way
with single taxing. They don't seo tlio
point and say the whole thing is a fake.
But 1 couldn't got the cat out of my
mind nud in an hour went back again.
Tlio result was tho same. The figure of
the cat never presented itself to my vi
sion. "Next morning found mo onco moro
beforo tho window. I had determined
to seo that cat or die. Finally it friend
standing near mo cried out: There it is.
Don't you seo his tail?" And looking
where ho pointed 1 did seo the end of Mr.
Cat's tail, nud In another second tho
whole feline had flashed upon me. He
was almost ns big as the picture itself,
and when I had once seen him he almost
obscured everything else on tho canvas.
So it is, my friends, with tho single tax
principle. All of a sudden it flashes
upon tho window of your mind, and it
can never bo removed thereafter."
Another man who is fast acquiring
famo in a queer way is Frank Lawler of
Chicago. An odd sort of a fellow is
Frank. Ho served several terms in con
gress from Chicago, nnd though an illit
erate man who had graduated from a
saloon and tho board of alderman ho
mndo a good congressman. Ho nearly
killed himself working ns an errand boy
for his constituents. Onco ho was well
to do, but he spent all his money in poli
tics, and now his littlo home is mort
gaged. Ho wants to bo postmaster of
Chicago. To back up his application ho
brought to Washington with him tlio
most remarkable petition which was
ever presented to a president. It con
tains in all 0:i, 107 names.
But even this unparalleled petition,
which lie brought to the capital with him
inn trunk that had traveled around tho
world, lieen in two steamship disasters
and any number of railway accidents
nud come out unscathed, is not likely to
do him as much good as tho fact that nt
