LIGHTING CONTRACTS. - There can be no legitimate objection made to the postponement of the time for opening bids for lighting the street of thia :ity. Under the terms of the specifications the various bidders, were faced by new problems and they were entitled tQ an extension of time to look into the matter. . But whatever is done in the way of awarding - contracts later .it must be borne in mind that, the successful bid ders must be tied -up hard and fast with bonds, in order to secure the full per formanee of the obligations . assumed. The city wants good lamps and at the lowest price,- and no matter what con pany .gets. the. eeatrack. it. is to make eertain that the promises made will be kept- Nobody pares what sort of lamp or lamps are used so long as the proper licht is secured: That is the only real factor involved in the proposition. The city wants to- get the maximum of re sults at the minimum of cost. . CORTEX. YOU HAKES ANSWER. Secretary Cortelyou has sent to the United States Senate a long statement explaining his action last October when lie wenV ta the relief of the money mar ket and aided very materially in check ing the rush of depositors to banks. He takes the general ground, and the logical - one, - that he was justified in "taking vigorous action s to arrest a panic," and he goes into details to explain his course. ; There is no doubt whatever that the action of the secretary f the treasury was in a way unusual, but unusual conditions require new remedies. The result of the secretary8 course was to check the mad downward rush and the entire country was benefited. There was a demand for something radical and that demand was met. The mere faet that the secretary did aid materially in the direction of restoring public confidence is enough to know. The national government stands for the people, and when the people themselves were benefited by what was done last October it is to be taken that the method employed was justified and warranted. The money used was the money of the people. New .conditions are -often created and new precedents mufit often be established. There was no tlefinite provision for extending national aid last October, but now that it is discovered what such aid can do in .a critical time it is for Congress to provide a line of aetion for the future. Those ' alleged statesmen who would have preferred to see the smashing of things go on in preference to decisive action from Washington are not to be taken as having the interests pf all the people at heart.

On one soeeifie line of work, ar.d perhaps the most important, the two bidders were tied by the - tamo finires. Now there is;' an effort made to divide the bids so as to give the favorite the most profitable part of the onttact. , ' The custom in awardinz such contracts in Philadelphia seems u make it mandatory to give the big j" to the lowest average bidder, and that is why Hf.iv-.iw T1,, ci ... v.. in .i.i,.,ri..J -I i -'. . . .... , , . , . , - , in an when she was a sirL She was not happv. .

Had bids been asked separately lor the several varieties of street re- pair work, each to stand on its merits, there might b some excuse in the event of a stand off on one grade of work, to give the work to a man who had been doing it. Really It was most unkind for another bidder to butt in and make the old and favored contractor take a back seat. But the chances are that the old crowd will get the job. NOTABLE INSTANCE. Last autumn a New Turk lieutenant of police was sent to Belgium to buy five police dogs. Well, he went, bought the dogs, boarded himself for a month and returned home, at the . end of his trip, paying ten dollars as duty on the dogs. On Tuesday his bill of expenses was presented and created much excitement in the office of Comptroller Metz. It was discovered that the total outlay, including the cost of the dogs, the duty, the steamship fares, board in Belgium, cab hire, and other incidentals, had only summed up $364.84.- Thia is probably the most remarkable bill ever presented for such a trip. Usually the addition of a few cents to a big bill indicates that the maker of it only seeks to create the impression of having paid close attention to details. But in thia particular case it is very clear that the police lieutenant kept a close watch on his expenses, and he has certainly made a record which entitles him to be stamped with the 'O. K." of old Diogenes. He paid only fifty dolars apiece for the dogs and they are just what were wanted for the rural end of the big city to help the patrolmen. It is certainly refreshing to hear from New York, or any other city, that a public officer with the privilege of expending what he sees fit, should present an account that is almost absurd for its economy, all things considered. But the lieutenant had a fina trip, no doubt, and he now has the rare distinction of spending public money with the same scrupulous care and the same attention to economy that he would were he spending his own anoney. There are New York policemen and policemen. . COCK-SURE BRYAN. ,. This is what William J. Bryan Is credited ..with having said during a speech in Omaha: I know that some people are giving ..At, .' much thought to. the money question, but that is not worrying me much. The people . of this country have made it possible for me to acquire an independ fent income for-all time to come, so I have no worry on that source. Don't ; be cock-sure, William. . The American people in their gullibility have done well by you, as you are willing to admit. Just the same riches sometimes takes onto themselves wings. There is nothing so uncertain as an "independent income." Just now it is not hard to discover why the free silver idea has been abandoned by Bryan. He is not prepared to eee his "independent in come" cut in half by cheap money, and thus made a dependent income. Now that he has a good thing Bryan ought to be satisfied. Why he should want to tie himself up with the saving of the country through the White House, when he is independent and can alwaj-s get Mg fee for an hour or two of vocal exercise, is not clear, There died recently somewhere in the West a. woman aged 83 years who is now being described as one of the many women who declined to marry Abraham Lmeoln when he was only a struggling lawyer on the circuit. There have been several of these women mentioned since Lincoln died, and there is never any way to disprove the elaim. It really does not matter, yet perhaps the old woman j who has just died imagined that she might have married Lincoln if something had not stood in the way. . Such cases are not unusual.; For instance only a short time ago a bright woman, now past the age of frivolity, explained that she came near living in the 'White House in Washington. She had planned, whtw a girl, to make a visit to a city in the Middle West and there was to meet a certain man of whom she had some knowledge and in whom, as she admits, felt some interest. But her visit was prevented and she did not meet the young man.. Later the same man be-' , eame private secretary, to one of the Presidents of the United States and lived in the White House. Just the same she does not claim to have reject- . -r , ... . r some of the women who have bev?n cred 1 ited with the privilege of rejecting Ab-i ritham Lincoln had pondrred so long over what ''might have been" that they came really believe that Lincoln i wished to marry them. These delusions are harmless' and nobody is injured. I Had Lincoln lived he would now be : nearly ninety-nine years of age, or sixteen years older than the woman who has just died. Under ordinary condi-j lions Lincoln was. too old for that wo- j story of the robbery of a sinsrr or an aetcr.

If Speaker Cannon could rely oa the votes ail the aiea who are in the h bit of u;:cg an expletive whenever they consider it necessary, he would be elected president jby the largest majority .ever known.-Washington Pot "t want you to know that I never swore a profane oath is my life, and I wouldn't say 'damn to a mosquito if it bit me." . -Thus spoke Sneaker Cannon to a reverend gentleman who recentii' interviewed him. Baltimore American, Somehow or other these two floating paragraphs da not seem to harmonize. Seventeen citizens of Pennsylvania are now being held "up to explain what they did in connection with the building of the state capitol at Harrisburg. That the building cost several millions of dollars more than the work could have been done for, is enough to know at the start. It is hoped that before the case is ended the truth will be blurted out by somebody, even if it ha to be through a confession and the escape of one or more of the accused. . An Illinois member of Congress made a spectacle of himself on Tuesday by haranguing the House on the question of "international marriages. J"here is really no objection to American women making marital bargains with foreigners jf theys see fit and are willing to take chances. It ia their own affair and the government at Washington has no say in the matter. There is an awful lot of twaddle sprung in the halls of Congress. January is making an "ugly record or fire losses throughout the country. Indianapolis has just had a blaze that is expected to net a loss of one million of dollars. Then Kansas City had a loss of $500,000. The wealth that goes up in smoke in this country every year is tre mendous. Certainly there is a terrific waste that ought to be prevented in some way. " : Mississippi reports the lynching of two negroes by a negro mob. The tw victims were charged with having way Jaid and robbed their own father; Thus the negroes are imitating the white lynchers, and they do not intend to dis criminate. Yet lynching for highway robbery does seem to be a punishment out of all proportion to the offence. Night ef Almond Blossoms. Thomas Walsh in the Bookman.

EXAMINE. 111 -srs - FANCY NEWS OFTHE DRAMA Coming AttractionB Booked for the Three Local Playhouses. Good OneB on Liat. The show at the Garrirk thia week is I attracting unusual attention on wcount of the strength and variety of the en- tertainftent offered. Hal D4vis and Company's 'Bace for a Wife," introducing an excellent line of comedy and thrilling and sensational scene 01 tne automobile race between the ; young man and the girl .0f ibis choice, and an irate soon-to-be-fatherin-law is about the best thing the Garrick has ever presented. It ia sensational enough to please the most ardent follower of the melodrama and at the same time of that nature which wins the good will of that element, that as a rule, does not follow the melodrama and its hair-raising features.' Mr. Davis has a great act in this auto racing feature possibly the' greatest of its kind in vaudeville to-day. Mary Ann Brown, the English woman who is proving her right to the top-liner class, this week, presents some characterizations that are extremely clever. Kussell and Held have a high-: class singing and dancing act of the better sort, and .Klein, Ott Brothers and Nicholson and several others, including Harry Botter and Company, in side-splitting farce, "A .Matrimonial Blizzard," all combine to present what is one of the Jiest shows of the ertire season at the local house this week. With new songs, many new laughs and a lot of pretty girls, Harry Keily in His Honor the Mayor' will come to the Opera House on Monday, Feb ruary 3, and a special matinee perform ance, with the same company that has just closed a four weeks' engagement n ew iork, which is the nun tuna this piec,e has played the metropolis, in the last year and a half.

What is said to be one of the most ovel and original plavs which ha been seen in years and bearing the triking title of "Wiy Girls Leave Home" will be seen at the Lvceum. to- av, Friday and Saturday, matinees on riday and Saturday. The play ia by red teuuimerheld, and the story is a representation of the happenings of almost every household fortunate enough to possess a daughter whose future is to lie considered above all else. It is nothing in common with the figments of the imaginative mind and is handled with the delicacy, dealing as it does with event3 in the life of a young girl and a subject so interesting to all humanity. Mr. Summerfield has been daring in. his playwiriting. too. He has done something which at first blush might seem to border close to the danger line, but which by reason of the great delicacy with which one certain 6cene is handled and the deep reverence which is displayed in its enactment becomes a most impressive situation. The play is well supplied with scenic, and mechanical effects and the cast is a large and adequate one, numbering among its members several r well known people. There are more tears and laughter in the four acts of Bertha 5L Clay's powerful t story, "Thorns and Orange jjiossoms tnan any play on the road this season. It is a notable fact that most critics in reviewing the comedy drama lay particular stress on this feature. One writer in the Chicago Tribune said: '"Thorns and Orange Blossoms is a play of the kind that leaves a memory; it is simple in construction, strong in dramatic climax, hilariously funny and pathetically sad; in a word it is a story of 'laughs and tears.' " And such ia the general verdict of those who witness the production. It has a soothing effect; the story while working on to the highest emotional pitches is restful because it is natural; there is nothing foreed nothing overdrawn. The players like their different roles because they offer a wide scope for the display of histrionic talent and in each theme is a splendid opportunity for individual work.
