Washington, Sept. 28, 1803. Special
Courier Correspondence. When tho
original corncrstono of tho federal capi
tol wan laid at Washington, September
18, 1793, by President Washington, tho
federal union had been established
four years and tho governing powers of
tho republic had barely broken ground
on tho great highway now teoming with
epochs and distinctive ovents so many
milo posts in tho history of tho nation
itself. This is tho centennial occasion
Washington introduces to tho attention
ofthiB country, and bids it pauso n
brief period whilo Bomo of tho accom
plishmcnts nnd dccdB of tho past
marshal in review.
Tho birth of tho nation's capitol with
Masonic ceremonies was tho beginning
of a building that has had many
changes and passed through many
vicissitudes. Tho result is a growth
genoraily acknowledged ono of tho
rlnest plecoBof architecture in tho world.
Perhaps tho best demonstration of tho
progress of tho republic sinco tho timo
the federal union began to assert its
right as a peer among tho nations of tho
earth down to tho present timo is found
in figures that tell a wonderful story.
Comparison nnd fact aro potential
forces in every centennial anniversary.
In 1703 thcro were fifteen states and
in 1893 there aro forty-four. A popula
tion of 3,92D,r.2S haB increasod to 67,180,
000, occupying an area of 3,580,805
squaro miles, which in tho original was
but 805,401. Philadelphia waB then tho
largest city in tho United States, having
a population of 42, 520, Now York com
ing second with 33.121, Boston 18,038 and
Baltimore 13,503. Chicago, San Fran
cisco, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St.
Paul were noton tho maps, whilo St.
Louis, Cincinnati and Pittsburg wero
just beginning to be. New York with a
"1,710,715 census, Phlladolphln-wlth 1,-
142,053 and ChlcBgo with, 1,009,850 com
prise moro population than that credited
to tho country 100 years ago. Tho con
gress of 1703 had 135 members nnd tho
congress now in session has 448 on a
ratio of representation of ono to 173,901
of population to only 30,000 a century
A curious explanation is lmulo of Mr.
Van Alen's selection us tho first em
bassador of the United States to Italy.
It is stated that of all our legations
ubrond this has been for tho last ton
years most difficult to fill from u social
point of viow. It was inndo bo by Mr.
William Waldorf Astor, who, when
minister to Romo, "sot tho paco" in
mattors of entertainment and other
social functions on such u scalo of
lavish expenditure that no ono not
assessed of u millionaire's fortune
could hopo to follow him successfully.
Mr. John B. Stullo, whom Mr. Clove
land during his first term appointed to
succeed Mr. Astor, hud a most un
pleasant experience. Having noprivato
fortune, he was compelled to rely upon
tho salary of his office (812,000) for his
menus of living and entertaining as
minister of tho United States. Tho
contrast botweon tho economy thus en
forced and tho munificent oxtruvnganco
of tho preceding regime was so murked
that tho American colony and Ameri
can visitors mnilo Mr. Stallo's life an ex
ceedingly unhappy ono. Tho complaints
thnt poured in upon tho stuto dopart
wfeivt ulmost partook of tho nature of
charge.. It was asserted thut Minister
Stallohatl removed tho legation from tho
pulaco it "had formerly occupied and
established U over i "cheesemonger's
shop," nnd it vns aluirst intimated thut
he wus diverting the-jfmda provided by
congress foe tho nuitonunco of tho
legation to hlf. own ttfflvnto purposes.
Ho was hnttjjooned (jj.d ridiculed in
every poeeibr way Cor his alleged par
simony. 'J'tri only foundation for these
charges wi;tf, of coijityi, tho fuct that Mr.
Stnllo Jlvul within his official incomo,
wbiln'Mr. Anton ,!!d not. Similar incon
veniences weco felt, in less degree, by
Governor Porter of Indiana (who re
signed tho plnco ostensibly to enter tho
Indiana campaign,) and by Mr. Wil
liam Potter, whom Mr. Harrison appoin
ted in tho last days of his administra
tion to succeed Qovornor Portor. Mr.
Alen's inhorited .wealth us an Astor son-in-law,
it is expected, will onablp him to
restoro to tho American embassy in
Romo all tho social glories which tho
legation had under Mr. William Waldorf
United States senators live well us a
rulo, but young Mr. Wolcott, of Colo
rado.hus already earned tho numo of tho
most expensive euter in congress, Tho
best that can bo had is none too good
for him, and tho prico of an article on
tho bill of faro Is no object from his
point of viow. Ho is a graceful en
tertainer, nnd always haa two or throo
guests to tnko lunch with him in tho
restaurant bonenth tho chamber of tho
upper house. Lodge, of Massachu
setts, General Mandorson and Don
Cameron aro chums and very commonly
tablo-matcs of his. Of all sorts of gnmo
he is extremely fond, and ho is novor so
happy ob when discussing a bird and
a bottlo tho latter Perrler Jouot cham
pagne with ono or moro friends. Por
chanco It may not bo uninteresting to
copy hero tho items of an order which
tho most luxurious man in tho sonnto
wroto out for his noontido meal n day or
two ago.
Raw oysters on tho half shell wero tho
first course Then enmo u fish, which
wrtB succooded by broiled woodcock.
Chicken salad followed, and peach short
cake furnished tho dessof t. This lust
is a dish much loved by tho senator.
When peaches aro not to be had ho finds
a substitute in the homely squash pie.
Of course tho order wound up with
coffeo and cigars. Tho woods Mr. Wol
cott smokes aro imported from tho
Vuelta Abajo, and ho never buys them
at a cheaper rato than three for $1.
A romarkablo contrast to tho luxury
of this statesman syburlto is afforded by
that uniquo pcrsonago in politics, Sena
tor Pcffor. Every day between 12 and
1 o'clock ho may bo seen in tho restau
rant consuming a frugal meal, which
almost invariably consists of a slico of
applo pio and a cup of coffee. Occasion
ally ho takes a bowl of bread and milk
instead, avoiding grenso spots by moans
ol a napkin witlupno corner tucked into
his collar in front. Ho "wears iioncdr.
tio becnuso ho haB whiskers. Evidently
ho disapproves of tho tipping system,
inasmuch as tho waiters say that ho has
never been known to give ono of them a
Senator Lodgo often eats his noonday
meal in company with ex-Speaker Reed
and. Jlourke -Cockran,-who eomo-ovor
from tho house side for convivial pur
poses. Tho young man from Massachu
setts haB a weakness for broiled ham.
Usually ho takes poached eggB with it.
On other days, for tho sake of variety,
ho indulges in calf's livor nnd bacon.
Ho drinks nothing, save onco in a while
a pint of champagne. As to tho brand
of tho latter ho is not particular. Some
times ho brings his wifo and other
ladies into tho restaurant for lunch, as
does Wolcott also. Merry parties of
both boxes frequently enliven tho eating
room of tho sennto with laughter nnd
conversation. On such occasions tho
"spreuds" aro moro elaborate. Thcro is
nothing purchasable at Dolmonico's
which cannot bo got nt this euro in tho
basement of tho capitol as a rulo, quite
us well cooked.
Tho most liboral senator ob to tips is
Mr. Wolcott. Ho always gives tho
waiter at least 50 cents nnd sometimes a
dollar. Hill and Murphy arofrco with
their money in this way. also, and Brico
is likewise. Jones, of Novudn; Gorman
Cameron uml Halo nover fail to remem
ber tho colored servitor with a pour
boiro. Thoso representatives in congress who
mako any protenso to "stylo"' go to tho
restaurant nt tho other end of tho capi
tol for their lunches. Porchanco tho
dignified atmosphere which senators
breathe is an attraction. Thero is no
hurry und slap-dash in tho eating room
of tho upper houso. If u customer
takes only u slice of applo pio ho gets a
fingor-bowl. Prices aro about tho same,
but tho avorago amount paid for a, meal
on tho houso sido is much smaller than
nt tho .senate ond. Etiquotto in the
lutter resort is moro Btrict. No enntor
is over soon to eat with his knife vr to
stick his napkin in tho urmholcs of his
waistcoat bib-fashion.
Two rooms in tho sennto restl tlvunt
are reserved exclusively for the j-onntors
und their gueHts. Thoy atrord sontB for
only seventy persons and tho spuco is
not nearly sufficient. Thero is no prin
ted wino list at cither end of tho capitol,
for fear of tho prohibition cranks, but
anybody can got anything ho wants to
drink at either restuurant. Evory uow
and then tho "tomporanco" pooplo muko
an outcry about tho liquor sold ut these
places. Troublo was stirred up when
Mr. Reed waB spoukor. Tho speaker of
tho houBo controls tho houso eating
room. Mr. Reed issued an order on the
subject and for about a month whisky
was sorvod in coffeo cups. After that it
was supplied in glasses us usual.

Tho board of education is now con
sidering bids for tho supply of coal for

tho board will give a square deal. Here
tofore tho board has juggled with tho
coal bids in n way that would have re

Tho best advertising agent for n
second rnto theatrical company is a
bubbling minister of tho gospel.
And, unfortunately, ministers aro too
willing to engage in this kind of busi
ness. (They, or somo of them, seem to bo un
ublo to conquor tho inclination to
monkey with tho stage, und when thoy
tacklo this subject they invurinbly
muko holy spectacles of themsolves.
If blacksmiths would keep to tho
forge and shoemakers to their lasts, and
ministers to tho business of saving
souls, things would go a good deal
smoother, and many persona who now
mnko fools of themselves would bo
saved that experience.
This timo it is a Presbyterian minister
in Beatrice, tho Reverend Countermine.
Tho show thut ho advertised to tho
public wub Minnio Sartcllo'a "Plum
Pudding" which was Boon in this city
Monday night.
Mr. Countermino with moro zeal for
notoriety than with righteous desire to
servo God, degruded his pulpit Sundny
evening by u sensational harangue uuent
the appearance of portraits of Minnie
rraurtellc la Btligo costume.
His sermon did not- conduce to tho
saving of souls, and it didnut reflect
credit upon himself or his cloth. Tt8-
only effect was to draw uttontion to the
Surtcllo show, and to swell tho nttcn
dunco nt its presentation Tuesday even
ing. And in this instanco .ihe-Beverend
Countermino worked a confidence gumo.
Heaven knows tho show wub bud
enough; but it tho Beatrice presentation
wus unything like tho Lincoln presenta
tion, those peoplo who wero drawn to
tho theatre by Mr. Countermine's ud-
vertisement, expecting to seo some
thing shockingly immoral, must have
been terribly disappointed. From a
moral point of view it wus no worse
than tho nverugo run of theatricals, and
thoro wus no occasion for tho Reverend
Countermine's bubbling over.
Ministers of tho gospel cunnot puvo
sinners by pitching into uctors und
uctresses, nnd thoy cunnot reform tho
stage by this method. Tho experiment
has boon tried u good many times, nnd
It hus always fulled. Every time they
mako tho venture, particularly when
thoy nro guilty of sensationalism us wus
tho Reverend Countermine, they lower
themselves in tho public esteem und
prejudice tho cnuso thoy represent.
Mr. J. M. Knox, of this city, is not a

but ho is goncrully quite content to

is that tho stuto democratic convention

in of that tiresome old man, Judge
Samuel Maxwell, und the uttempt to

politician who ought to bo peacefully re

tho Bee who likes to uso tho republican
party us a foot bull, will try very hurd
to cram Muxwell down tho throuts of

counties whero tho Rosowutcr bnguboo

many tnun who uro not for Muxwell, und
who novor will bo.
Mr. Rosowutcr or his ropresentutives
will udvunco the proposition thut a re
fusal to renominate Muxwell will result
in tho Binushlng of tho republican party.
It will result in smushlng Mr. Rose-
water's dictatorship, und thero is a
growing demand for such u proceeding.

Not always havo tho nominating con-
en t ions in this city bestowed any
seclal consideration on tho naming of
candidates for justico of tho peace, and
thero hus often been complaint ut the
peculiar vurioty of law dispensed in some
of our justico cctu ts. Ono of tho wisest
things thut the republican convention
that wus held last week did, wus to nnmo
us its candidutes for justices of the
peace young, uctlvo nnd nble young
mon who nro above suspicion us to in
tegrity, und who must bo entirely satis
factory to tho legul profession of tho
city und litigants genoraily, men who
will bo found to bo entirely roliablo in
every particular. Tho threo young men,
H. K. Spencer, L. A. McCundlep and L.
r. Gould, whom tho convention selected
commond thomselveH to all republicans
und voterH of all tmlltlcul beliefs.
Lawrenco P. Gould, of tho Sixth ward,
ono of tho throo nmnlnnna. was Iwirn In
Owiimo, Mich, May 20, 1802. His fathor
wbb juugo Amos uould, tho leading
chancery lawyor of Michigan at that
timo. Ho obtained his legal education
In tho law ofllco of tho Hon. William II.
Seward, of Now York, and practiced In
his office for a number of yours. His
son was graduated from tho law depart
ment of Michigan university in 1891,
and was admitted to praotlco boforo tho
BUpromo court of Michigan in 1890. Ha
camo to Lincoln In 1801, when tho
partnorshlpof WestormannJowA Gould
wua formed. Lately ho haa been asso
elated with tho Hon. W. S. Hamilton.
Mr. Gould hus mndo many friends dur
ing his rcsidenco in Lincolu, and ho ia
quite generally regarded ub a young
man of unusual ability.
L. A, McCandlcss, who will noon wrlto
J. P. after his name, was born In this
city in 1808. Ho wua cducatod at West
minster college, Now Wilmington, Pennu.
Whon tho collego of law that was after
warda made n department of tho state
university wub started, Mr. McCandleaa
was ono of tho first to ontor, und ho wan
among tho first graduates of that insti
tution. Ho has been engaged in the
prnctlco of law for nearly threo years.
Mr. McCandlosB' fathor, A. M. MeCnnd'
less, was u well known legul practitioner
in this city, and tho young man having
resided in Lincoln most of tho timo since
hilt birth, has u wido acquaintance. Ho
is u distinctly cnpablo young man, and
he enjoys a reputation that is a flatter
ing tributo to his integrity Und ability.
E. E. Spencer is a young man who,
having entered tho nowspuper businetf,
was wise enough to quit it and go into
something else and bettor.- Most mon
engaged in tho newspaper business are
foolish onouuh to want (rt rnfnaln In U.
Mr. Spencer, who will .mako a dijtDitied
popularity pioaaantly brought homo
whon ho opons his court, wub born in
Ogdonsburg, N. Y., about thirty years
ngo. Ho cuiuq to Ncbrasku In 1870,
settling near Omaha. Ho 1b u irruduuto
of Douno collego, und wus for threo
yours editor and manager of tho Crete
Olube. Ho camo to Lincoln in 1888 and
entered tho olllco of Hurwood, Ames &.
Kelly. Ho graduated from tho law
school of thiB city und wus udmitted to
tho bar in 1890. Mr. Spencer is now In
purtnership with John P. Muule. About
Mr. Spencer's qualifications for tho olllco
to which ho will bo elected thero can bo
no question.
TIicbo threo men, Spencer, McCand
lcss und Gould, uro n part of tho repre
sentation of tho young men on tho ro
publlcun ticket, und tho young men nro
emphatically sutlotlcd with their repre
sentatives. John Harrop, tho republican purty's
candidato for register of deeds, is an
other representative of tho joung men.
Mr. Harrop was born in Kendall county,
Illinois, in 1850. Ho moved from thero
to Michigan, and camo to Lincoln in
1870, when ho entered tho employ of
Tom Lowroy, with whom ho remained
threo and a half yours. Ho spont most
of his timo on tho roud buying grain.
Mr. Harrop continued in tho grain busi
ness until tho ofllco of register of decd6
wus created in 1888, when ho uccopted
un uptointmcnt under John D. Knight,
und ho has been in the register's ofllco
ever since. Mr. Harrop has been actively
identified with tho republican party in
this city ever sinco ho camo horo, nnd
he has uvery largo following of warm
personal friends. His popularity was
attested in n marked manner in tho
county convention when ho was made
tho nominee by tho concerted action of
tho young men. It is predicted that
Mr. Harrop will poll u phenomenally
largo vote.
J. I). Woods, county clerk, wus re
nominated with littlo opposition, und of
courso his nomination is equivelant to
un election. Mr. Woods' performance of
his public duties hus given entire satis
faction to his constituents, nnd ho is ro
gurded us ono of tho most efficient
clerks the county has hud. Ho hus
been particularly faithful in thodis
charge of his duty, remaining con
stantly ut his post, und tho work in his
olllco is always up to date. While Mr.
Woods isn't u young man so fur ub jours
uro concerned his sympathies uro with
tho jounger and better eloment in
politics, nnd known us ho is in all parts
ofthocounty his name gives strength
to the ticket. Mr. Woods deserves the
