New Youk, Jan. 27. John Most, in
'speaking of nerrBcbol's charge, cabled
from Berlin yesterday, that "Most's
paper, the Frtihcit, was the product of
secret police agents and protocateun,"
said: "Ho is n liar; thero is no truth in
it whatever. The German Socialists aro
trying to help themselves politically at
tho expenso of tho Anarchists. Prom
cnteurs exist here in America. They
aro police officials or Pinkcrton men,
who incite men to do wrong and then
ntrcst them while thoy arc doing it. I
have had experience with them, but
thry did not catch me. I understand
that game. It was in that way that
they sent poor Hroneck, tho Chicago
Anarchist, to prison for twelve years.
I will soon get out of jail, and then I
will show tho police and their prococa
tews what I can do."

THE NAVAL LOBBY.
Testimony liefrire tlio Court or In
aiulry Tltlx Morning,
Captain Howison, U. S. N . chairman
of the committee of lino officers of the
Navy, was the principal witness before
tho Naval Court of Inquiry this morn
ing. Ho testified that the organiza
tion of line officers was effected about
ten years ajro, and had continued
in existence, ever since. Its purposes
wero to take care of the interests of
line officers boforo Congress in the mat
ter of legislation. For this purpose
counsel had at various times been em
ployed and weie paid by pro rata sub
scriptions. The fact of tho exlstenco
of tho organization had been known to
some of Secretary Tracy's predecessors.
Slate Cleveland testified to tho fact
that mates in the Navy had employed
counsel to look after their interests in
proposed legislation. He had paid
money for that purpose and signed con
tracts to pay $200 when certain meas
ures became laws. 313103 Wilmuth
and Crcighton gave similar testimony.
PRESENTING OLD CLAIMS.
Attorney Hu7e1tou Gives sin Opinion to
The Attorney for tho District to-day
replied to tho request of the Commis
sioners for an opinion on the validity
of old claims. He says:
In answer to your letter of Jauuirr QJ,
stating that "claims tlmt have accrued
more than tlirco years prior to their presen
tation aro constantly being prcscuted to
tlie Commissioners for refund lug, aud ask
ing: Shall the Commissioners appeal to the
statutes of limitations to protoct tlio Dis
trict against them?" I have tlio honor to
make the following reply:
From this letter I understand that tho
question to be passed upon by mo Is
whether tho btatmes of limitations can bo
cinplocd by tho District as a defcuso In
tho cases therein referred to. As this fjues
tfon was fully ouswered by tlio Supreme
Conrt of tho United States In the cas6 of
tbo Metropolitan Railroad Company vs. the
District of Columbia, at October term,
18S9, 1 adopt tlio 6ame as conclusive upon
this question. It Is in tho language fol
lowing: Corporations aro persons in the law.
Thero Is no apparent reason why thoy
should not be Included tu the statute.

London, Jan. 27. 'Dio recent invlla-
tlon of tho Prince of Wales to Mr.
Henry Fowler, M. P., to visit him at
Bandringhnin is viewed by politicians rw '
an indication that his Royal Highness
expects tho early return of the Liberal

It Is learned on thd authority of ono
of tho governors of tho Bank of. Eng.
land that tho story about silver has for
its foundation the fact that Mr. Coschcn,
the Chancellor of tho Exchequer, has
been urged to introduce a bill Into Par
liament to pruvido means for the coin
ago of silver bullion to relieve British
bankers and members from embarrass
ments caused by the constantly recurring
scarcity of silver in Shanghai and other
trading centres In China. For several
months past this scarcity of silver has
been moro rcmarkablo than at anvotlur
pciiod, especially as in addition 'to the
imports of this metal a noteworthy
supply has long been obtained from tho
Cblncso'Empire itself. An Increasing
demand for tho higher form of cur

a natural consequence of its commer
The supposed dlscovdry of tho bacil
lus of Influenza by Drs. Maximilian and
Adolphc Jollcs of the bacterian
laboratoiyof tho General Hospital nt
Vienna is not by any means a new ono.
In 1872 the influenza, as in tho case of
tho present epidemic, traveled from
East to West. Then the diseaso was
supposed to havo entered Russia from
China, and no less a person than Kant
professed to find itsoriiln in an "in

Last Wednesday Dr. Eimer Allen
Adams, one of "Washington's leading
physicians and the chief resident of his
section, East Washington, died of pneu
monia. Yesterday he was laid at rest
In the Congressional Cemetery. Ills
funeral wns the largest ever seen In that
section, and one of the largest which
ever took place In this city. Dr.
Adams' death Is a public misfortune.
Ho was only fifty-ono years old, and
was iu tho full vigor of mental and
physical manhood. As a 'citizen he
was public-spirited, and In his profes
sion he was justly eminent. Ho was
devoted to his family, and yet was a
favoiito in society. He was that finest
of characters, a humane physician, ono
whose skill and knowledge, and his
purse when needed, were over at tho
service of the poor. Indeed, but for
this lovable trait he would in all human
probability bo olivo to-day. During tho
epidemic of Influcn7a which swept over
this community so recently Dr. Adams,
in'comraon with his brother physicians,
was oveirun with calls. Ho answered
all that came. Through over-exertion
and exposure he foil a victim himself.
But ho took no thought of himself; ho.
relaxed no energy; he shirked no duty,
he continued his rounds among his pa
tients and ministered unceasingly to
their ills. J
One day timing Hits period he was
met on the street by a friend, who re
marked on his appearance, saying that
he looked ill and should bo iu bed.
ThcDoctor leplied: "I havo eighty
patients who need mv services. I havo
no time to rest." His friend replied
that his patients wero mostly poor peo
ple who could not pay him, and that
he would kill himself if he kept on.
To this tho humane physician replied;
"It is because they arc poor that I can
not neglect them. If I must die, it
cannot bo in a better cause." Shortly
after thodicaticd pneumonia developed,
and tho brave, man was laid upon what
proved his bed of deathi Wc have
said that his death was n public misfor
tune. To the poor it came as a per
sonal loss, for he had, perhaps, the
largest practice among them of any
physician In the city, certainly in his
section. He never refused his services
because they wero needed by the poor,
olid ho never gavo them grudgingly.
To the poor, indeed, his death is a

Hbrses owned by Messrs. Harvey

for 1 1,000 n side for a half-mile dash at
Ivy City nt 1:30 o'clock this afternoon,
only a favored few being permitted to

made several days ago. Mr. Neville's

thd habitues of tho Washington Riding
School, while tho gray colt of Mr,'
Pogols familiar to alt cross-country
llders. Their respective owners havo
long been desirous of testing their
qualities in a match race.
It was understood that a race had
been nrranged between Rags, a
horse belonging to Policeman Black,
and Irene, a young filly, tho prop
erty of Mr. Joyner. But the race fell
through on account of tho friilure of
Mr. Slack to come to timo with the
necessary umouu't to cover the wager of
$500. If nothing provents, the race
will take place within the next ten days.
Messrs. Davis and Hall, who have a
number of horses stabled at Ivy City,
were at the track this morning watch
ing tho animals at work, aud appeared
satisfied with what they did. In con
versation with'.TiiE Citrric reoroscnta
tivo both gentlemen said that they pro
posed to enter horses for the spring
meeting at Bcnnings', ns they arc firm
believers that tho entcrprlso will prove
n success. For tho purpose of getting
their horses in condition they decided
to begin track work earlier than usual,
and especially aa the weather is so mild
for this season.
Doc. Mnddox, one of tho heaviest
horse owners in America, was also out
looking at the horses, and said ho is
never happier than when watching
them on the track. He is also n great
admirer of game cocks, but is sore on
that subject at present. "Not long
ago," said he, "1 went to a cock fight
at the Orchard House, and of all the
crowds that I ever got mixed up
with that was the worst. A man took
his life in his hands to go there. The
cocks fought, men fought, women
fought and boys fought, and about
every two and a half minutes I would
feel my throat to see if it had been cut.

One month of tho year 180J has al
most expired, and Inquiry among the
I business men of the Capital shows a
. most encouraging condition of affairs
for the future. There is a universal
expression that monoy is more plentiful
than ever before iu this clty( and capi
tal Is pouring into what Is known as
tho Gold Delt, so far as real estate Is
concerned, iu a manner most grntitylng
to property-owners and. their ngents.
Then, too, tho class of people who
como to Washington during tho winter
season insures tho circulation of a large
amount of money in shopping chan
nels, and it is the opinion of a society
leader that she can do na well at "Wash
ington stores as she can in New York
llcproscntativo buslncsa men of
Washington wcic questioned to-day by
representatives of The Ciutic ns to tho
business outlook for tho future, and
their replies aro given below in their
John W. TnoureoN, President Na
tional Metropolitan Hank Money is
cas'er and interest lower than for Bomo
time post, and the business outlook for
tho future is very promising. National
legislation by Congress is necessary to
show the peoplo that the law-makers
really take an interest in their affairs,
and especially Is this truo of our mer
chant marine. There was n temporary
stringency in the money market a short
time ago, but that has entirely disap
peared, and from all tho money centres
there is but ono opiuion, that times nre
better and continually Improving. There
is no question among business men that
trade of every sort should be encouraged,
and especially with the South American
Republics, where a great field Is open
ing up for our excess productions.
Johk F. Waooaman, Real Estate
Denier It would sound like a fairy
story if sonic of the recent developments
in real estate matters in the northwest
ern pai t of tho District should bo related,
and yet they arc 6trictly true in overy
sense. Never beforo was there a
greater demand for building sites in this
section and money is plentiful nud
likely to continue so. Several deals aro
now pending involving properly at
"Washington I ieights and Woodlcy Park
which show that land which but a
year or so ago was held at acreage
rates Is now iu demand at figures ap
pioximating one dollar per square foot.
Aud this is the case nil out Connecti
cut and JIassachusetts avenues aud con
tiguous to Rock Creek, and if tho de
mand continues there will" be a scarcity
M. W. Gai.t & linos., Jewelers
Dining what we call our season busi
ness has been remarkably good in fuel,
much better than ever before in tho his
tory of our house. Prospects aro good,
too, for a continuance of this condition
of affairs, despite the fact thatabou'
three weeks ago thero was a temporary
depression, due. doubtless, to thoprcvii
lence of tho much-lulkcd-of grip. Ill
health has caused society people to
defer attending to business which
would benefit our trade, and from all
over tho country the same statement is
made. But thero is a decidedly upward
tendency now, and tho iucrcase in thu
volumo of business is such as to justify
us in expecting il to continue. Of
course if a panic should intervene out
shot in the dark ns to the future- may
not be correct, but wc are satisfied with
the present outlook.
Johk Fkaheii, Architect Building
operations have taken another boom
and all over the city there is as mvtch
work as mechanics can bo found to per
form. Particularly is this true of the
northeastern section of tho city, where
an unusually large number of permits
for new dwellings are being taken out
and the indications point to a healttiy
and substantial revival in that part of
the city. There are several larce build
ings proposed in the territory north of
,l. itri.i Tr. i .i. ,
ITllllU Xi-UUSU uuu iuu itiuus arc
being drawn now by various architects.
Inquiry shows that in every direction the
building season is already at hand and
tho open winter has not materially in
terfered with the progress of interior
work on houses under construction.
Johk II. Shall & Sons, Florists
Never beforo has there been such n de
mand for lloral decorations, aud the
season now before us promises to be a
led letter ono for Washington. People
are coming to this city from ail parts
of tlio country who have monoy to
spend, and consequently Washington is
greatly benefited by their advent. So
ciety people love flowers, and tho class
of people who are at tlio Capital as
sures business men that a new era of
prosperity lias dawned for the Capital.
Certainly, there has never beforo been
such a cheery outlook for n boclal soa
son, even in tho daya made famous bv
the Cleveland Administration.
Makaoeu Rai-i.ev, National Thea
Ire Our effoits to cater to tho amusement-loving
peoplo of Washington havo
met with a gratifying aud continued
iccognition, and I don't think I eirin
Iho statement that the present season is
tho beBt wn have ever experienced.
Comedy fceems to be appreciated by our
patrons nnd wo have endeavored to
make that a feature of our bookings for
the season of 1889-'90. Thus far tho
receipts at tho Iwx-ofllec havo shown a
marked Increase over previous seasons,
and the prospect is excellent for a cou
tinuaucc. Bur.cn & Gums, Kbbitt House De
spite the fact that last year, being
inauguration year, brought large
crowds th Washington, our business for
tho first month of 1890 makes tho grati
fying exhibit of on Increase of 25 per
cent; this, too, in the ftico of a falling
off in the number of touiists who tako
in AVashington, as has been demon
stratcd by inquiry at the markets whoie
supplies aro furnished to tho hotels and
boarding-houses. Wo cannot complain,
for our houso is full and wc aro somo
times sorely tried to accommodate all
tho travelers who present themselves.
A. S. Phatt & Soss What can
wo say to Thu Kvukiko Ciutic about
business? Well, first, wo'll say n word
of wclcomo to Tun CmTic. Thoro Is
room for another evening paper in this
city, aud tho chances for the success of
your paper nrp cood. As to business,
the prospects aro fnvorablo for a lively
bpilng business. Tho real estato market
is active nnd shows nn upward ten
dency. Thero nro just the samo oppor
tunities for speculation in Washington
now ns thero havo been for years past.
It requires a little moro monoy. for
prices aro stift'er, but profits nra tho
same. Thero Is considerable inouoy
seeking investment. Tho uowly organ
ized Lincoln National Hank has sub
scribed tho entire amount of Its cap
ital, $200,000. Tho Traders' National
Bank has also paid in and Is getting
leady for busincsi. Everywhere nro

U. II, Waiinku & Co. Indications ot
an actlvo spring trndo aro beginning to
be manifest Wo can mak no i im
plaint of business, even nt prosent. Our
Bales last week amounted to over $100,
000. This shows thoro Is somo little
movement in tho market Prices arc
advancing nnd stiffening, but now cap
ital, anxious for safo investment, Is
coining in all tbo time. Washington
presents nn extensive field for safe and
highly-profllablo Investments In real
estate and this fact is known to outsldo
capitalists and appreciated
Ilonnr-fl & Tr.BL Our prospects nro
bright for getting a share of tho
prevailing good business and deals in
real estate. Tho season is not as pro
pitious as might bo, but notwithstand
ing this drawback wo liavu every reason
to feel encouraged for moro business in
the near future.

Wlracr. Mr. Hodges, his partner, Is
nephew of Wm. H. Riley and has been
his uncle's right-hand man for thirteen
Q. A. Johdak How about uorthcast
properties? Well, 1 think I nm in n
position to know what is going on in
that section by reason of mv connection
with tho Washington Real "Estato Com
pany, the largest dealer in northeast
properties. A short tlmo ago wobought
081,000 sqlinrc feet of land in Northoast
Washington, contiguous to Lincoln
square. Over 375,000 feet of this
amount have been sold in tho past two
weeks. I have sold within ten days
enough to net the company a profit
of $33,000. That look's like
business was fnirly good, eh?
This land brought from thirty-eight to
sixty-five cents per Equaro foot. It was
purchased In large blocks, in 6mall
Jots, by capitalists, by men of moderate
incahs, who wish to build homes, and
represents not a fictitious boom, but a
steady, healthy growth. Property north
pf II street and cast of First, which
brought thirty cents last year, Is now
commanding "fifty cents. Thcie wero
moro building permits issued in thu
past twelvo months for East Washing,
ton than for the remainder of tho whole
B. C. Cuttkii & Co. Tho open win
ter seems to havo had a good effect
upon building operations in tho city,
permitting tho finishing of many houses
which had been commenced late in tho
fall. Theio is no doubt Ihero would
havo been a livelier building season if
the builders had not been hampered by
tho railroads iu delaying the shipment
of slonc, lumber and material. I look
for a fairly active season In real estate,
indications seeming to point to it.
Fitch, Fox & Bkowk. Wo antici
pate n good spring business, and, as a
matter of fact, business is not painfully
sluggish even at present. There is con
siderable inquiry for property by peo
ple who wish to invest, which is agootl
Indication. Wc made several sales last
week. Colonel W. W. Flemmlng
bought n nice residence from us, ono of
Mr. Schneider's now houses on fj
street, between Seventeenth and Eigh
teenth, for which he paid $15,500. We
also sold Mr. Percy 15. Metzger. treas
urer of the American Security and
Trust Company, a house for $0,000 on
Seventeenth, between Q and lt street.
The property of the old First Baptist
Church, on Thirteenth, between G nnd
II streets, was also disposed of by us to
Professor 13. M. Gallaudct for $30,000.
M. M.PAKKun Haven't a word of
complaint to utter against business.
On the contrary, have reason to bo
pleased with the state or things. Sales
aro active nnd prices are good. There
is' considerable foreign caoital coming
in for Investment, and I think this
springwlllsbowa largo increase over
other seasons in the matter of outside
investors placing their money here.
Makaowi Gaks, Lnnsburtrh Bros.
The indications aro that the spring
trade will be very good. The peoplo
have kept their money this winter, be
cause they have not been compelled to
purchase heavy goods, and it's reason
able to suppose that they will invest in
spring wraps and other articles that
come with a cliango of season. Of
course the continued warm weather has
had a most depressing effect on our
business, but wc kept up our usual sales
by reducing tho cost, and our profits
were greatly cut. The change of Ad
ministration no doubt hnd some effect
on business, but to what extent I havo
no means of judging. . If General
Gicely will only give us a cold snap of
about a month's duration It would havo
a healthy ell'cct on our trade.
Kino's Palace Our business is in
advance of a year ago. The unusual
weather hail no effect in our lino, as
our tiadc is mostly regular aud not tran
sient. 1 believe this year will bo a very
profitable one. The tendency has been
for trade to increase each year, and I
attribute most of our success to a lib
eral use of punter's ink. During tho
past eleven years we've paid out for ad
vci Using $125,000, and no money was
over expended moro cheerfully. I said
just now that the warm weather had no
effect. Well, In one sense it did. It
made a run on light wraps, which made
up for small &alc3 in long cloaks. I
don't think the change of Administra
tion has affected our trade.
R. IlAiti!is& Co.. Jewelers Tho year
'80 was the most prosperous we've ex
perienced since goins in business. Tlio
piospccts for a busy season aro good.
The weather doesn't" have any effect on
our business. Of course, brlglit days will
bring out a large crowd, and when the
streets are crowded it means an increase
of trade for the merchants. The reason
wo assign for tho trade we enjoy is be
cause w.o keep our name beforo the
public and because we import our dia
monds. Wii.lf.tt it Ruoff, Hatters and
Furriers We can't tell anything of tho
future. We aro pining over tho past.
ThCj.hat trade with us Is always good,
but in furs it has been a very dull nnd
unprofitable season. Tho heavy gar
ments wo still have with us, hut the
light furs and capes sold to advantage,
"ies, the warm weather has proved very
expensive to us.
Saks & Co., Clothiers and Out
fitters Tho outlook for a lively spring
trade we consider very bright. While
our tiadc goes ahead overy year, yet
tho waim weather has had a bad
effect on the sale of heavy clothlns.
Tho effect on business by a change of
Administration is gradually dying out;
tlio city is becoming moro settled,' and,
of course, it means a better trade.
Chab. Baum. Dry Goods, etc. I
don't know what to think of tho future.
We havo had so many disappointments
that wo have to live on hopes. Wc ov
pect a great deal hero in Wnshingtou
tho World's Fair, for instance, The
weather bus had a veiy bad effect on
tho trade.' Peoplo don't want to buy
heavy garments when thu weather is
wnnn. Wo should not epect too much
of tho future, then wo wouldn't bo dis
appointed. Tho future, for me, can
tnko care of itself, andis I am not a
piophct, I am satisfied to look out for
tho present. Business was better dur
ing tho first year of Cleveland's Ad
ministration than If was last your.

Charles F. Wenncker of St. Louis
camn to Wlllnrd's this morning. Al
though n young man, youthful iu
looky and gracious with his smiles, he
Is one of the most potential of St. Louis
Republicans, and tho election of three
Republican Congicssmcn In 1883 was
duo In n great measure to his efforts as
Kcrctnry of tho campaign committee.
When not in politics he is n partner In
n large candy concern. Ills visit here
is not so much on Iho World's Fair
project as to say something about tlio
Federal appointnicuta In tho .Mound
City. Wennckor belongs to the now
ciowd of progressive Republicans, and
wants tho young men recognl.ed.
Colonel John McFall, chairman of
the Republican, committee of St. Louis,
is ficquently seen about tho hotels, al
though he is visiting his son-in-law,
Richard Sylvester. Colonel John Is a
short, heavy-set, round, jolly-faced
man, whose social qualities havo had
much to do with his succcsp art a politi
cal manager. He is rich, enjoya life
nnd doesn't hanker for oftlco him
self. Tho signature of "15. L. Fiiurat,"
which appeared on Wlllnrd's register
lo-lay, would be more valuable If at
tached to a check for $100,000. He Is
n wealthy banker of Lima, Ohio, and
a neighbor, friend nnd possibly to some
extent n business partner of Senator
elect Calvin S. Brlce. As a rich man,
Mr. Fnurat has been beneficent with his
wealth, and has done a great deul for
Limn in the way of Improvements and
by stimulating the business spirit of the
city. Mrs. Fnurat is with him,
General A. J. Wnrner of Marietta,
Ohio, best-known while he wns iu
Congress as "Silver Bill Warner." Is at
Willaid'B, where ho is attending a
meeting of tlio Sliver Lenguo's execu
tive committee, appointed by the re
cent convention at St. Louis. Once
seen, General Warner will never be for
gotten. He Is tall, broad-shouldered,
and, because of his height, ho has
grown stooped in bending over to talk
with tho "small" politicians of Ohio.
And ho thinks many of them small in
more ways than one. He has always,
ns an old school and moss-back Demo
crat, resisted thu unscrupulous progress
Of the Cincinnati aud Coal-Oil Democ
lacy, which elected Payne Senator nnd
made the State bankrupt whllo
llondly wns Governor.
It wns General Warner's finesse
which sent Allen G. Thurman and
Duibin Waid as delegates-ot-Iarge to
Chicago In 1884. and thwarted the
schemes of John R. McLean to send a
"Kid" delegation. General Warner
was kept out of Congress by the re
disricting of the State, but ho con
tinues his' interest iu national affairs
and asserts that, with all tho work of
the present Ways nnd Means Com
mittee, it will, after all, adopt- substan
tially the old Randall bill, which Gen
eral Warner says is the fairest and most
popular bill ever introduced.
Frank Ratter man, red-bcaidcd, florid
faced and ever pleasant, ns are all Ohio
politicians, is at the Ebbitt. Ho wis,
until lately, County Treasurer of Ham
ilton County nnd has held several
places of honor and emolument in Cin
cinnati. He is one of the "ICId" Dem
ocracy and, of course, was a lively
worker for Brlce.
Ex-Postmaster General Don. M.
Dickinson is here from Detroit. Ills
silky, Van Dyke brown whiskers nro
still n beauteous joy and kept carefully
trimmed. Since retiring from the Cab
inet, Don M. has lived ostensibly in
Detroit, although his extensive legal
business keeps him away from home
much of the time. He lives in the
houso owned by Minister Tom Palmer
in Detroit anil entertains generously.
He is certainly the Democratic leader
in Michigan and confidently expocts
Clevoland to bo renominated nnd re
elected In 1892. In that case there Is
no doubt that Don. M. will go back to
his portfolio. His admiration of
Cleveland Is almost hero worship and
it may be'thnt he would Hkn to be a
paitncron the Presidential ticket three
A Detroit citizen who was at the Eb
bitt yesterday, and who observes with
out being a politician, remarked: "Tom
Palmer is lircd of the Spanish Mission,
as his letters to Detroit friends indi
cate, lie is surely coming home to run
for Governor this fall. He never cared
to be Senator or Minister to Spain. Ho
is rich and cares nolulns for the differ
ence iu salary. Until last year Michi
gan only paid her Governors ,000.
while Gil. Oamuu, Secrctaiv of State,
gels but$S00. Now tho Governor gets
$3,000, which barely pays campaign
expenses. It has been Palmer's ambi
tion since boyhood to be railed Gov
ernor nnd ho will probably get it."
Melville 13. Ingalls, of Cincinnati,
president of several railroads, is at the
Arlington. A few years ago he left his
New England homo a poor younz law
yer, endowed with Yankee courage and
n well-developed acquisitive bump,
which filled out as he fell nmong rail
road magnates in tho West. He soon
took charge of everything in sight, aud
became a veiitablo Napoleon of finance,
at the same time identifying himself
witli the public-spiiited citizens of Cin
cinnati. Ho has been a master spiiit in
the wonderful improvements which
have made the Queen City n surprise in
its progress. In fact, ho is tho Yonder
hilt of tho West, evincing at the samo
time nioio regard for the public than
did tho two elder Vanderbllts. As a,
Democrat Ingalls Is a nrogrcssivo one,
and hopes to be Senator somo day. His
son, Melville Ingnlls, jr., Is here on a
visit from college.
S. 13. Morss, editor of the ludlanapo
lis Sentinel, is at the Arlington, and will
stay in Washington a season to get some
fresh editorial ideas at short rnuge.
Homer Leo of Now York, tho bank
note printer, Is at tho Arlington, lie
is an old Ohio boy, n printer at first,
who made his way up by haul woik
and tho practical use of his genius.
John liardy Doyle of Toledo, an ex
Supremo Judge of Ohio, is hero. Somo
timo ago his friends got up a poltlion
to have him appointed on tho V. S.
Supremo bench as tho succossor of
Stanley Matthews. Judge Doylols a
handsome man, and yet young enough
to succeed some or tho present Justices,
who nro old enough to retlie, and ought
