KO PBIYACY FOR THE PBESIDENT.
-a Salary of 50,000 a Year Enough With
out Free Quarters.
PERT1NEKT EESOLUTIOKS PROPOSED
ICOBBESFOXDEXCX OF THE DISPATCH.
'WashixgtojsD. C, April 13. One of
the "problems" which must be solved Id
the near future, and which interests every
man, woman- and chiltt of the' country, is
the housing of the President add his fam
ily. If we must have President we should
give them a chance to live decently, with
space enough for the household made neces
sary by the demands of the station, and
with privacy at those times when privacy is
their right. No married couple in America
who values domestic quiet would from
choice live as the President is forced to live,
with no more space than is to be had in
many a house of the city which can be
rented for 540 a month, and with a feeling
that somebody outside of the family is al
ways tramping through the other rooms.
To one who has witnessed, as I have dur
ing the last few weeks, the awful pursuit of
the President by office seekers, the" lack of
privacy day qr night, the impudence with
which some men press their demands while
their victim is eating or sleeping, it must
seem that however cynical one may be in
regard to the necessity and sense of all this
machinery of government, one must be
hard hearted indeed to fail in sympathy for
the man who is growing more haggard and
worn each day of his life.
THE SrECTER OrFICE SEEKERS.
It seems to me that the haunting specter
of some one always waiting in the lobby
must be almost enough of itself to throw the
strongest man into a condition of nervous
Not to go into n long discussion of an old
question, it must appear to every one that
the country should not treat the President
more meanlv than others of its employes.
They should not compel him to live in one
end of a business block after the fashion of
the economical keeper of a lager beer saloon.
They should trample on precedent instead
of on the President, and permit the highest
ranking servant of the people to do as the
member of the lowest grade, and that is to
hire his own private house and pay for it
out of his own pocket, like other people.
I can see no more reason why a President
should be furnished a house to live in than
a Vice President, a member of the Cabinet,
or any other employe of the Government.
He gets a bigger salary than anybody else,
and the necessary entertainments which he
gives during his term makes no greater
draught on his purse than on the pockets
of the others. These entertainments are
pretty generally provided lor in the contin
gent fund for the maintenance of the Exec
utive, and need not to any serious extent
come out of his salary.
Jl. MOAECnlCAL IDEA.
He is not compelled to live in the execu
tive mansion except by precedent, and as
precedent is easily gotten rid of in a coun
try only 100 years old, that should not
stand in" the way of a sensible President
who really desires to have privacy when he
is not in attendance on his public duties.
Moreover, it seems to me that it is a prece
dent which would be more honored in the
breach than in the observance. Like the
Presidency itself, it is a relic of the monar
The fathers of the republic could not di
vest themselves of the conviction that there
must be some one person to sit like.a king
as a court oT last resort upon the action of
those representatives coming most directly
from the people, just as the Senate was
thought necessary as a sort of house of
.lords. And so, also, the "palace" was
thought the proper thing for the housing of
the President, as the castle for the king. Of
course it may be said that there is no differ
ence in fact between paying a public
servant a salary with which he rents a
house and renting the house for him, or
building him one in which he may live rent
free, but if so, why not do as much for
every public servant? In this democratic
country why should a distinction.be made
in favor of the President, who is no less a
servant and no more a ruler than the most
obscure employe of the departments?
-A SEBVAST, 2TOT A BTJLEB.
"We compel the Vice President, members
of the Cabinet, Senators, and members of
the House of representatives to live on sal
aries ranging from 88,000 to $5,000 a year
and rent their own houses. By living mod
estly and attending strictly to the business
for which they are sent to the capital they
can pay their expenses and have something
left. If they "put on style," and entertain
handsomely, giving expensive dinners, of
course they will find themselves out of
pocket at the end of the year. But if they
please to do that it is their own affair and
they should pay for the pleasure out of their
private means. They are not paid for giv
ing champagne dinners.
But here is the President, a mere execu
tor of the laws, not by any means as im
portant an individual as" the man who
makes the laws, under the operation of this
anomaly of a democracy of ours, getting a
salary of 850,000 a year, and a house to live
in, and Presidents and tuft hunters and
sticklers lor show and irrandeur and "the
dignity of the Government" demand that
he, shall be made more of a king than he is
now by building a new and magnificent
palace for his private use, where he may en
lold himself more than now in the egotism
of power and delusiveness, and fancy him
self more and more a zuler instead ot a ser
vant. LET US EESOLVE.
"While, therefore, we may sympathize
with the President in the impossibility of
privacy which he now suffers, let ns not
maudle over it nor become afflicted with the
idea that the country is humiliated by the
fact that he is cooped up in one end of the
public building where the executive busi
ness of the Government is conducted. Let
us rid ourselves of all idea of snobbery and
become pure and simple democrats, as we
onght to be in this democratic country, and
solve the question of the President's resi
dence and privacy by demanding that our
representatives in Congress introduce some
thing like the following:
Whereas, The limited space of the build
ing which Is intended for the transaction of the
executive business of the United States is
found Insufficient in size for the crowingjieees
sities of the Government, while It Is also occu
pied as the private residence of the chief exec
utive, therefore be it
Resolved, That on and after the 4th of March,
1892, this building shall be devoted solely to
" BUYING HIS OTW PBIVACy.
This will give the next President of the
the United States the proud privilege of
renting or buying his own residence, in
which he could surround himself with such
rules as would ensure reasonable privacy,
and not be constantly subject to the humilia
tion of the consciousness that he is sponging
on the people for the root that is over his
head while accepting a salary which in his
private business he could not by any means
A President who lives modestly, yet lib
erally, as becomes comfortable people in a
democracy, can save at least 835,000 a year
ont of hit salary, and yet pay a rental for a
house which would secure him the best of
the private residences of the town, Now,
isn't that good enough for him? "Would it
nut be good enough For vou, even if vou
At any rate that would be my way of set
tling the important question of the future

ecutive an atmosphere ot yet more royal

ISrECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH. 1
NewTork April 14. Oaths and yells,
mingled with children's screams, were
heard coming from one of a funeral proces
sion of coaches this afternoon as it was re
turning from Calvary Cemetery, down Bor
den avenue, m Long Island City. Then a
crash was heard, and a man's
head came through the broken
glass of one of the coach doors.
His hat rolled into the street. He drew his
bleeding head in through the broken glass.
Then there was a loud shriek and another
crash, ana a woman's head came through
the broken glass of the opposite door. Her
crushed and torn bonnet fell into the street
and her long red hair became undone and
was blown out by the wind. She was
quickly pulled back into the coach again.
The driver stopped his team and got down
from his box.
Quite a crowd had collected around the
coach by this time. The noise inside the
coach continued. The driver opened the
coach door and a woman came flying out.
An empty whisky bottle followed and shat
tered itself on the cobble stones. A second
woman followed the whisky bottle. Both
women looked as if they had had a sharp
tussle. Their faces were scratched, bruised
and bleeding, their hair was down and
their dresses torn. A little boy and two
little girls were then taken out ot the coach.
They showed marks ot the fight, and they
were sobbing pitifully.
AN AMERICAN TESSEL SEIZED.
The Ha nllan Government Takes Decisive
Action Against Oplnm Smnealing.
Sak Francisco, April 14. The schooner
W. S. Browne, which arrived from Hon
olulu Thursday last, brought news of the
seizure of the American bark C. D. Browne
at Honolulu by the Hawaiian Government,
60 tins of opium being fonnd among her
cargo. By the arrival of the steamer Ala
meda to-day information is received that the
case was tried before a Court of Admir
alty and a decision rendered against the
vessel, which was accordingly ordered con
fiscated under the new session of laws of the
The case was immediately appealed to the
court, and is awaiting a final decision. The
bark has been allowed to load and will sail
under bond of 819,000, which was fur
nished bv the vessel's agent. The action of
the Hawaiian Government is looked upon
as very; unjust, being against and contrary
to the international treaties.

New Yobk, April 14. In regard to the
meeting of the Prison Association to be held
here on Monday, John G. "Whittier writes
to. "William M. F. Round from. Danvers,
I am glad to hear that a public meeting is to
beheld In your city to protest in the name of
Christianity and humanltyagalnsttheentorced
idleness in prisons, perilous alike to body and
mind, which can only resnlt in tilling yonr
prisons with maniacs. My sympathies are
h lth the laboring class in all their just de
mands, and I would favor every legiti
mate measure which promises to benefit them.
Bat the suppression of labor in the prisons is
too small a gain for them to be purchased by
the transformation of prisons into madhouses.
I trust farther reflection, and the knowledge of
the dreadful consequences of the slow torture
of brooding idleness, will ere lone indnce them
to forgo what must be a very trifling benefit at

Beware of imitations.
No single disease has entailed more suffering
or hastened the breaking np of the constitu
tion than Catarrh. Tbe sense of smell, of taste,
of sight, of hearing, the human voice, the
mind one or more, and sometimes all, yield to
its destructive influence. The poison it dis--trlbutes
throughout the system attacks every
vital force and breaks up the most robnst of
constitutions. Ignored, because but little
understood, by most physicians, imnotently
assailed by quacks and charlatans, those suffer
ing from it have little hope to be relieved of it
this side of the grave. It is time, then, that the
popnlar treatment of this terrible disease by
remedies within tbe reach of all passed into
hands at once competent and trustworthy.
The new and hitherto untried method adopted
by Dr. Sanford in tbe preparation of his Radi
cal Cure has won tbe hearty approval of
thousands. It is instantaneous in affording
relief in all head colds, sneezing, snaffling and
obstructed breathing, and rapidly removes the
most oppresslvo symptoms, clearing the head,
sweetening tho breath, restoring the senses of
smelL taste and hearing, and neutralizing the
constitutional tendency of the disease toward
tbe longs, liver and kidneys.

The Grand Opera Housa Pilled
A MEDICAL WONDER.
The Interest manifested by invalids of every
description in tne publlo healing of the sick at
the Grand Opera House every morning from 10
to U o'clock by Dr. Smith, seems to be increas
ing. The Opera House Is filled to overflowing
every morning with invalids from all parts of
the country and city who are suffering from all
manner of complaints, eagerly waiting for an
opportunity to receive a magnetic treatment
from Dr. Smith. That this man Is endowed
with a strange and mysterious gift to heal dis
eases there can be no possible doubt. The
many wonderful cures he performs simply by
laying bis bands npon tbe invalid is truly mar
velous. Scores of helpless invalids are carried
upon the stage, and after receiving a magnetic
treatment of not more than five mlnntes' d ora
tion, get un, walk around the platform ahd de
clare to the audience that they are entirely
well. Sr. Smith is a thoroughly educated phy
sician and surgeon, and performs all operations
known to surgery; he cordially invites both
the sick and the well to go to tbe Grand Opera
House and witness his many wonderful cures.
This morning a man went upon tbe stage wbo
bad been a helpless invalid for four years, suf
fering from rheumatism in his back and legs.
He was so lame that he was obliged to walk
with crutches and Could not stand alone with
out them. In fire mlnntes be was running
around the platform with his crutches over bis
shoulder, as well as he ever was in his life.
Another gentleman wbo suffered from a lame
shoulder and who had not been able to put on
bis coat without help in five years, was cured In
less than five minutes. A lady wbo had been deaf
five years was made to hear a whisper. A lady
suffering from rheumatic headache was re
lieved of all pain in a few moments' time.
These wonderful cures were witnessed by an
audience of more than 1,000 people. Dr. Smith
will treat the sick every morning this week at
the Grand Opera House from 10 to. 11 o'clock
free of charge; everybody is Invited to attend
and listen to the lectnre and witness the cures.

o'clock in the Grand Opera House. This lec
ture will be illustrated with life-sized charts,
