Desultory attempts hare been made for

This house, historically known as the
Morris house, was the military headquar
ters of Washington and his staff on Harlem
Height Here he first met General, then
Captain. Alexander Hamilton, whom ha
loved as a son. Here Washington received
the unannounced visits of Indian chiefs,
not knowing whether their Intent waa
friendly or warlike. From the opposite
shore he wept like a chi d when be saw
the Heasians slaughter his troops. From
this house he was driven by Lord Howe,
nd he never returned to it until after he
was president of the t'nlted State.
There Is much cf historical national ro
mance connected with the Morris bouse,
later known as the Jnmel mansion.
Colonel Roger Morrta, the ancient mili
tary companion of Washington In that fato-
ful and awful Braddock campaign, built
his mansion, which he intended to be the
home of his bride. Miss Mary Philips,
whom Washington had also loved and
wished to wed. but was refused.
Colonel Morris remained true to" the roy
alist cause, and after the breaking out of
the war he took his feroity to England.
His projterty was confiscated by the co
lonial e-nvemment, but after peace waa de
clared the crown m&de good all Colonel
Morris losses as a reward for his loyalty.
By an ante-nuptlal agreement this prcperty
had been settled upon Mrs. Morris. After
her death the claim of her heirs waa bought
by John Jacob Aetor. The profit of this
transaction In real estate is said to have
Betted the old man the snug sum of -tiOO.OX).
Subsequently the mansion waa bought by
Stephen Jumel, a wealthy French wine
merchant, whose widow, at the egs of GO.
married Aaron Burr, who was at that time
a marked and ruined old maa of 78. Ulti
mately the property reverted to a lineal
descendant of Colonel Morrta, the lat4
General Ferdinand Thlnney Earte, whose
widow lived In the Jumel mansion until It
waa acquired by the city.
The ancients represented Time as a mon
ster devouring his own children. Ths
inarch of time and the wonderful Increase
of property values are1 devouring every
landmark of the struggle that made us a
nation Parcel after parcel of this o'd prop
erty that Jf(rbelTnigd Colonel" Morris
has beer, sold, cut up Into city lots and
built upon. But the Jumel mansion, in the
midst of nearly thirty lota, and the syca
more trees that M. Jumel brought from
Franca and planted there the only trees

Characteristics of Wasblaartea.
If caution and modest deference to the
opinions of others are faults In the char
acter cf a military man, Washington pos
sessed these faults to a marked degree, and
It la perhaps due to those same faults more
than to any other one cause that cur rtrug
gle In the war for independence ended in
airing us national birth. A bold dash for
freedom would have ended In prison or
worse for all the leaders, but the patient
policy of worrying the enemy to death won.
There was little of the frivolous In Wash
ington's nature. From early boyhood he
waa orderly, methodical. He appreciated
the praise of peotle perhaps as much as
any maa that ever lived, but the weakness
that marks tha "poser" was kept la careful
rein try hts scrupulous honesty and re-
l'rlous fe-vor. At no time In all the dark
days of the Bavolu.lon was his spirit more
overcast than when the Mortis house, on
Harlem Heighta, was his military head
quarters. ' Every schoolboy knows that Washington
served hta country without compensation,
that he kept an account of his actual ex-
years, and are to this day nearly perfect,
only a few of the grain I having fallen off.
. General Earls once gathered op th"e
fallen grains of com and planted then,
but not one grain sprouted Into life. The
general said that he did rot know whether
this fact indicated that the life germs of
the com were dead or ttist his knowledge
of farming was defective.

Councils of war were held In this house
by Washington and his staff. In Its rooms
be gave a welcome to General Jee upon
whom at ths time the hopes of the nation
were placed on account of his successes
In the south. -
Washington loved the place and he hoped
that if the enemy attacked him there an
American victory would result,
A surprise not altcgslhcr welcome wss
given to Washington one day when his
orderly announced that some Indlin chiefs
wait-d without. haing sent In a request
for a talk with the Great Father. The
experience of Washington's 'rarly life had
taught Mm that the Indian is an exceed
ingly unreliable commodity. As these
braves were self-invited guests there was
a more than st-oag suspicion ttat tl:ey
mlsht mean treachery. Hnwever. the
red men tad thtlr ta'k In peace, took their
departure and no harm came of it.
The British soldiers were near hem and
an attack might be expected at almost any
moment. On the morning of Septem'w It.
177S. word wss brought to Washington at
headquarters that the enemy was advanc
ing In three large columns. There had been
so many false repor'a of an attack before
this that Adjutant General Re?d (rained
permission from Washington to ride forth
and ascertain for a certainty what the

ington mounted his horse and rode toward
the out poets. He was met by Reed re
turning, who told Washington the ad

the hill skirted by the wood, had been at
tacked by a strong detachment of 'the
enemy. Our own troops a company cf
contln-ntal rangers were commanded by
Lieutenant Colonel Knowlton. who had ills
Unrul hed himself at Bunker Hl'l. Gen
eril Lirs'le, the Fiitlsh comminder, had
under him Three companies of Hessian
riflemen, one of Royal Highlanders, and
his forces so outnumbered the continental
boys that he had succeeded In capturing
Derisive British Taaat.
Re?d was earnest In his appeal to Wash
ington that reinforcements be sent to the
con.inental boys who fought so nobly.
While he was still speaking the Britlrh
soldiers came in sight and sounded their
bugles, after the manner of those calling
In to witness the death at a fox chare.
jL'oth Washlnston and Reed were rtung
to the qu'.ck by this taunting, derisive
bugle call, and three companies were or
dered out from" Colonel Weedon's Virginia
regiment, commanded by Major Leltch. A
sharp contest took place. In which the
Virginia boys vied with one another In
bravery. Major Leltch received three bul
lets In his side and was carried off the
field. He died of these wounds about two
weeks later, but not without the happiness
of knowing that he had assisted at about
the first victory of tbs Americans and with
the prlres of his beloved Washington to
sooths his last moments. -
This encounter, through unimportant In
itself, was tha means Of cheering the dis
heartened troops. But Fort Washington
was a veritable Naboth's vineyard to
Lord Howe. He closed in on It as much
as poarlble. Washington was of ths opin
ion that Che Americans Could not hold the
for against such numbers of well fed,
well clothed, disciplined soldiers; but as
Greens differed from hint in opinion, and
Greene was in actual command Washing
ton having gone over to ths Jersey shore
he deferred to Greene,
Lord Howe's forces were encamped on
Fordham Heights, from which plaos he
sent to General Greens a summons to sur
render. The demand was accompanied
with a threat of the extreme measures to
which the British officer would resort It
he were obliged to take the fort by as
sault. Creese's Delssee,
Aa American la. ana always waa, tha
poorest man on earth to swallow a threat,
and General Magaw, who had received the
summons, returned the reply: "Assure his
excellency that, actuated by . the most
glorious cauos that mankind ever fought
in, I am determined to defend this fort to
tbs very last exUemity."
Lord Howe hod planted for eituultaneoua
attacks. Tha foit fell Into his hands, wllh
a loss to our causa of upward of itKi men
killed and wounded. Fiom tliat time until

by ths British.
It waa fourteen years later that General
Washington next passed tha porta is of ths
Morris house. He was then president of
the United Bute and bs mads a note of

Have the days of extravagant salaries
passed? W. C. Whitney has not signed
Arthur Redfern agaia: Tommy Burns is
also a free lance; Grover Cleveland Fuller
has no regular contract for next year.
There are few Jockeys now riding who sre
able to command a special fee as large as
was Tod Sloan's in his palmy days. Al
though Mr. Whitney, a multi-millionaire,
led the list of winning owners he seems
to have been one of the first to hit high
fees a black eye, so to speak. Captain 8.
P. Brown has not retained Jockey George
Odom. The boy was once guaranteed 13,000
for each big race he won for Alex Shields,
his employer. Mr. Whitney guaranteed
Sloan 5.W0 if he won the Futurity with
Bail) ho besides paying Sloan's ocean trip
expenses from Er gland. Doubtless similar
large gifts will be made to riders by
wealthy owners, but the latter are awaiting
the usjal winter developments of capable
riders by the California and New Orleans
meetings. Unless some tew Fuller or Red
fern or Sloan appears to disturb combina
tions there will be no great salaries paid
country, although repeated srandals have
arisen elsewhere. Of course there have
neen a few untimely affairs, but these have
been settled The few villains who would
not play fair in any spoi-t on eirth. who
have been able to do some dirty work on
d.fferent race tracks, have been relegated
to the rear. The frovernlng body In the
affairs of the turf is coming more and
more to look to the purification cf its
affairs. The fact Is recognised that square
iesling should ct.ai acerlxe all kinds of
sports, for If It does not, there Is bound to
corre a ti.-ne when that particular sport
will meet with a genuine hoodoo. This
hoodoo will conrlst cf o lack of gate re
ceipts, for as Lincoln Mid, "Ton can't fool
all the people all the ti-ne."
As long ss racing continues, Just that
long wiil betting continue. From a strictly
ethical and moral standpoint. It may be
presumed that this is wrong, but the fact
Is patent thst there is something In human
nature which demands something on the
bet'.lng or uncertain orcer to keep it from
dying cf ennui when It is out taking an
alrrng or a vacation. ,
A review of the year reveals one Impor

CONSCIENCE MAKES PAYMENT
Haadrrds of Dollars Dlatribatea by
Myaterlows Writer t -eesaelosi
ST. LOUIS, Dec. 27.-The trouble in the
conscience of some unidentified person, or
persona, has resulted In 400 being received
by the city treasurer and 1900 by officials
of different railroads during the week.
During the fore part of the week City
Treasurer Franclscus received the follow
ing letter, enclosing five (20 bills:
Herein find $100 currency on account of
any old claim or evasion of taxes by us.
There is 13 more to cume to you on this,
in full to date.
(Signed) SCRUPULOUS CONSCIENCE.
The next letter enclosed a similar amount
and said there waa $200 yet to come. The
third said $100 was yet to come, and the
last letter, received today, said the full
amount of $400 due had been paid.
All four letters bore date of December 23,
190$, and apparently had been written by a
woman. Treasurer Franclscus does not
know who sent the money. It was placed
in the municipal revenue fund. Apparently
the same writer sent letters received by
different railroad officials during the week,
President Joseph Ramsey. Jr., of the
Wabash, and several other officials of that
road received letters, all of which read as
follows: .,. v
Herein find $o0 currency In full payment
of eny old debts of years gone by.
(Signed) SCRUPULOUS CONSCIENCE.
Eight of these letters, enclosing alto
gether $400, were received by Wabash offi
cials. Vice President C. G. Warner of the Mis
souri Psclfic received two letters, cr.e om
Ing today, each of which contained $50.
Officers of the Burlington road received six
letters, enclosing altogether $300. .
Vice President C. H. Efeggs and Treas
urer Hamilton of the . St. Louis San
Francisco road each received a $50 letter
today. Ail the reolpieMa are at a loss to
