THE GOVERNMENT TO INTERFERE.
Strong and Weak Toints of the Exhibit
of the United States.
WELL TO THE PUOKT IN MACHISEEI,
But Easily Distanced in the DewratiTe and Artistic
Prices have raised at Paris. The hotel
keepers and tradesmen are endeavoring to
make oil the money possible out of the
visitors to the. Exposition. The Govern
ment will probably interfere in the matter.
The American exhibit comprises some fine
EpecimenEof machinery, but is weak in the
decorative and artistic lines. Some of the
work in glass and gold, however, is very
rnr cahlx to the dispatch.
Paeis, May 11. Copyright Com
plaints are pouring in about the extortion of
hotel keepers. It is the general opinion
among the visitors to Paris, and has been
for a great many years, that the hotel keep
ers of that wicked city are about the most
rapacious and remorseless brigands on the
face of the earth, and the people can easily
believe the most extraordinary stories about
the rapacity of the French hotel keeper.
To expect him to forego this opportunity
of fleecing the public is too much. For the
benefit of Americans who are coming to
Paris, it is as well to say he is ready for
them. 'When a man hires a single room in
an ordinary hotel and is obliged to pay f4 a
day for it without meals, he naturally ob
jects to the additional charge of $1 50 for
the services of a chambermaid, 50 cents for
candles and 25 cents for hot water.
But these things, with more or less var
iety, are exactly what he will encounter un
less vigorous steps are taken by the Govern
ment. Fortunately such steps are immi
nent. The Government has announced that
it will revise the tariffiof hotels and restau
rants if complaints grow mucn stronger.
THE PUBLIC rBOIESXrSG.
There are several thousand letters a day
pouring in from the swindled public, so that
relief from the Government is not unlikely.
The better plan to follow is to go to small
hotels and eat at hotels which are not promi
nently located at the corner ot the big boule
vards. A man showed me two bills of fare
from some restaurant which were suggestive
of the spirit of the times inParis. One was
that in use two weeks ago and the other one
had been freshly issued Tor Exhibition cus
tom Prices were nearly doubled for all
smaller dishes and the charges for wines
had been advanced about 50 per cent.
American-visitors at the Exposition are
soon impressed with the fact that while the
American constructive sense is superior to
the European, the American decorative
sense is inferior. The American has sur
passed the European in mechanism, but the
sense ol beauty is still dull in the national
breast. American artisanship, speaking
broadly, when brought face to face with
European artisanship, is more intelligent
in the application of means to ends and in
directions of method and economy of labor,
but is crude and almost illiterate'in taste.
WHERE "WE ABE SUBTASSED.
Eliminate from the American exhibit the
machinery, the gold and silver smithing,
and the art of the lapidary and glass maker,
and there is no American decorative art re-
atjaining upon which one can linger with
satisfaction. Even such cdutttries- as Italy
anil Switzerland show that the craft of the
wood carver is active.
Within the month that has glorified the
centenary of our civil independence, we can
not oner at the coogress of the world's skill
a solitary example of American porcelain,
fine textiles superior bronzes, artistic man
ipulation of wood, decorative paper or leath
er. We oner machines that can write and
talk, machines that perform all the labors of
the field, and that solve most of the prob
lems of the factory.
In an age ot physics, distinguished by the
discovery of no new principle, we have
astonished science itself by new combina
tions of principles, and by the creation of
resources for the convenience ot mankind.
But we have added nothing to the beauty or
grace of idealism.
A. few feattjbes.
There are American porcelains and wall
papers which might have been exhibited
here with safety as showing promise of
greatness. The glass exhibited has com
manded candid, even enthusiastic praise,
In the treatment of jewels and in the inven
tion of decoration of small articles of orna
ments for personal use the American ex
hibit is undoubtedly superior.
There is a surprising exhibit of industrial
bronzes from Bussia, artists like Lanceray,
who died two years ago; Xieberch, Posen,
Gratscheff and Bach being the sculptors.
These Bnssian bronzes, whether single fig
ures or groups, possess remarkable dramatic
qualities, and have a delicacy, precision
and freedom of modeling that entitle them
to a place in fine rather than industrial art.
In decorative treatment of gold, silver
and jewels, in etching. and enamelling, the
American exhibit stands first in simplicity,
clearness, elegance and 6uggestiveness of
design, as well as in the ingeniusness with
which use and beauty are associated. While
endless copying of exhausted patterns pro
ceeds in European workshops, the Ameri
can, designer is manifesting discernment in
the' selection of types worth preserving, and
originality and imagination in the creation
of new ones possessing the essential traits of
FBOM THE JJTOIAS.
The Tiffany exhibit introduces native
ideas of decoration) taken frankly from the
Indians and developed, presenting a pleas
ing contrast to British and Colonial design
ing, which is flabbily repeating the feeble,
stiff patterns of India, hackneyed at the
Indian and Colonial exhibition three years
ago, and worked to subsequent exhaustion
at Kensington. If we had supplied an in
telligent world with reading, writing and
speaking machines, we have also given it
iue ouiy universal goia pen, Dut witn this
brief comment the decorative and industrial
art of the United States, impressive in only
one great line, comes to an end.
England, until very modern times devoted
almost exclusively to trade and to manu
factures appertaining rather to the necessi
ties of civilization than to the adornment of
lite, has accepted tuition from those whose
spirit is more artistic than hers. Her por
celains, furniture, metallic products, tapes
tries, carpets, paper hangings, velvets.silks,
shawls and brocades constitute an impres
sive portion of her entire exhibit, to cata
logue which require a large volume.

PEKNI POSTAGE IMPBACTIOABhE.
The FoMiaatter General Sees Other Keformi
More Hadlr Needed.
Washixctoit, May 11. There are
indications , that an attempt is 'in
progress to. bring public sentiment to
bear upon the authorities in behalf of
1-cent postage. Many corporations
having large correspondence put into their
letters small slips bearing the following:
"Are you not in favpr of 1-cent postage? A
little effort on. the part of each one of us will
secure it. Write your Congressman or to
the Hon. John Wanamaker, Postmaster
General, Washington, D. C, urging that
letter postage be reduced to 1 cent."
One of these was shown to Postmaster
General Wanamaker to-day by an Associ
ated Press reporter, and he was asked if the
department mail showed any response to the
"Slot yet," he said. "So far as I have
been informed but one letter on the subject
has reached here."
"Are you in favor of reducing letter post
age to 1 cent, or will you recommend it?"
"When I was appointed," said the Post-,
master General, speaking slowly, "I was
impressed with the idoathat penny postage,
as it is termed, was very desirable, and I
came into the department predisposed in its
favor. In fact, I thought it ought to be es
tablished at once. But when I learned of
the poor condition of the service, 1-cent
postage receded into the dim distance.
WhenJ discovered that there are many
places in this country which receive a mail
but once a week, and that not always regu
larly, it seemed to me that what was needed
most by all concerned was frequent and reg
ular service from the Postofnce Department.
Postage in this country is as low as that of
any country in the world, for penny postage
in England is really 2-cent postage in our
money. For the present, I prefer to con
duct the.business of the department on the
principle of the sleeping car companies
not to reduce the rate, but to improve the
CAN HE AFFOED IP.
A Politician Saya the President Cannot Trifle
With Congressman Dalzell.
"Since the appointment of Sam C. Warm
castle as collectorof internal revenue, which,
bv the way, is generally approved, some
interesting things have arisen which show
how Senator Quay ingeniously handles his
wires to suit himself, yet not offending any
one but his declared enemies." This re
mark was dropped by a well posted local
politician yesterday, who continued:
"As has been well known, Congressman
Dalzell favored Frank Case for the office,
hut the appointment ot Mr. Warmcastle
shows the superiority of the 'powers that be'
in dictating where the plums shall fall.
However, if the Congressman is disappoint
ed in Case's defeat, he is to be reconciled in
firing the word as to who will be postmaster.
f this is the case H. P. Ford will be Iar
kins' successor to a cold certainty. The
latter will likely serve his term out, which
expires January 29, 1890.
"Mr. Dalzell, while not the sort of states
man to get down on his knees for any office,
must be recognized. The administration
cannot afford to ignore the recommendations
of such as he, particularly at a time when
Congress Is so evenly balanced politically.
All Mr. Dalzell has asked for at the hands
of tne President was, the appointment of
Messrs. Case and Ford. Now that the
former is 'in the soup,' as it were, it- is
reasonable to suppose that the appeal of
Mr. Dalzell in behalf of the latter will be
"On the other hand, when qnestioned
about this, the Quay men were still claim
ing that they would get McKean, too."
MR. SCANDEETT'S ANSWER.
He Again Averi That Ex-Umpire Decker
Bu Sued the Wrong- Alan.
A K. Scandrett, Secretary of the Alle
gheny Baseball Club, yesterday filed the
affidavit of defense of the National League
in the suit brought against it by S. M.
Decker for salary as umpire. The answer
settles the mooted question as to what the
National League really is. It is stated that
the League is not a partnership, but a mere
voluntary association, for the purpose men
tioned in its constitution. The clubs men
tioned in the plaintiff's affidavit are not
members of the association as clubs, but
have only the right to appoint delegates to
the National League. Further, it is held:
That no club called the Allegheny Baseball
Club is directly or indirectly connected there
with. The plaintiff, probably by mistake, re
ferred to the Pittsburg Athletic Association,
Xim as a corporation, whereas it is simply a
limited partnership; that, under the League
Association, the secretary alone has the power
to employ unmixes, subject to the Hoard of Di
rectors, ana me umpires are unaer tne solo
control and direction ot the secretary, and all
such engagements are made with the distinct
understanding that the umpire shall only be
retained so long as he shows himself compe
tent to fill the position; and the affiant says that
plaintiff well knew the rnles and regulations
before the time of his alleged employment, and
made his agreement with N.E. Young with
And the affiant is informed and believes, and
expects to be able to prove, that the appoint
ment of Decker was never approved by the
Board of Directors of the League, and that
Decker was dismissed from the position of um
pire for gross incompetency and because he
failed utterly to properly discharge his duties
as umpire at the various places at which he was
assigned for duty.
HE FIRED THE CHUECH
In -Order to Get Back Hii Job of Blowing
Boston, May 1L Theophilus Spring
field, formerly employed to blow the organ
at the Church of St. John the Evangelist,
oil Bowdoin street, has been arrested on a
warrant charging him with setting fire to
that church. Springfield made a confession
to-day, saying that he went to the church
and set fire to the cushions by piling paper
underneath them and then igniting it.
About a month ago he went- away for a few
days' vacation, and on his return he found
a man named Moore in his place blowing
The church people refused to discharge
Moore, and Springfield found his job gone.
This angered him so that he resolved to set
fire to the church, with the idea that Moore
would be charged with the crime. At the
time of the fire he was on the scene and said
a good deal to Moore's discredit. He was
held in $5,000 for the June term of the
Supreme Court. Moore has been sent to
the island for another offense, and a third
man is now blowing the organ.
