Wnaliliigtou Endowment Aocln
This morning about 2 o'clock afire win dis
covered in tho second story of tho nnlldlnR of
tliO Washington Endowment Association, Oil
F street, by some of tho omployos of tho
iroorlcan District Telograph Company and an
alarm turned In. Tho Tiro Department re
sponded promptly ami tho flames woro ox
tfngulshcd. Tho conflagration was tho work
of incendiaries, who picked tho lock of tho
front door, turned several of tho gas-Jots In tho
second story Into such a position that tho
desks and shelves were lsnttod and sot tiro to
a bundle of wasto paper in tho prlvato offlco.
Their object was evidently absolute malice,
as nettling was Btolen. But for tho fact that
they loft tho windows all closod and no draft
wob possible, tho conflagration would havo
completely destroyod tho building. As It was
n portion of tho wall In tho socond story and a
door was destroyed and tho stairway par
tially burned. Tho loss to tho turnlturo
amounts to about (200; tho damago to tho
building will not bo loss than 1 000 1 all fully
Insured. Bofarnocluo has been discovered
as to tho Identity of tho miscreant or mis
creants. In Mcmorlnni.
It Is with a sad heart that I pen this small
trlbuto to tho momory of my much-levod
friend, Mrs. Ocorglo Evcrott Wlllett, who
passed away from earth on tho morning of
March 1, surrounded by her many friends
and relatives, who docply mourn hor loss, Sho
was ono who possessed all of thoso raro quali
ties which render a woman so attractive and
bind so closely with tho chords ot affection
tho hearts ot all. Endowed with a mind ot
unusual lntolligonco, combined with a sweet,
nmlablo disposition that won tho loto and
highest esteem of all who knew hor,
" None knew her but to lovo hors
None named her but to pratso."
Sho was tho youngest daughter ot Mrs. Goor
glodlallandtholato John W. Williams, ot
Mississippi, and sister ot Major John W. Wil
liams, U. B. A.t also of Mrs. Josophtno Heard,
ono of tho most atfcctlonato and dovotea
sisters Ieer saw. Their father was an emi
nent lawyer afbd of a distinguished family.
Bho has left a void Indeed In the largo circle ot
relatives, friends and acquaintances which
can never be Dllod. May tho smiles ot Provi
dence rest upon and comfort tho hearts ot hor
bereaved family, and may they omulato tho
lovoly Christian charactor which sho over
tore, and left as a rich legacy to hor momory.
One angel more now swells tho throng
Of Ood's Immortals bright;
Another volco in heavenly song
Now sounds In realms of light.

Tlic Suit AgnliiHt IheW.iia. It. It. Co.
Thocaso ot Charles Lcmout against the
Washington & Georgetown Railroad Company,
that has gono through threo trials and a ver
dict each time, was before Justice Mac Irthur
In the Cltcult Court this morning on a motion
to set tho case down for hearing. Messrs.
Illno, Elnklo aud McPhersou v, ero tho counsol
for the complainant and Colonel Tolten for
Tho suit was originally commenced In tho
year 1877, and was tor damages rocolvod by
being ejected trom a car. Tho third verdict
was tor 1 15,000 for tho dofendant, and an np-
Jical was taken to the General Term. Afterlt
lad been argued thcio, and beforo tho opinion
was dellvored, tho president of tho company,
without tho knowledgo or consont of Colonel
Totten, tho counsol, met tho plaintiff In New
York, and upon paying him $2,000, socurod
trom him an order dismissing tho case.
Tho question now made by tho counsol ot
tho plaintiff Is that they referred thocaso,
and that their services were a Hon that could
cot be destroyod by a secrot and collusive
settlement between tho president of tho road
and tho plaintiff In tho suit.
As a matter ot tact, tho attoruoys for tho
complainant not only have not rocclved any
feo for their scrvlcos, but no return for tho
money advanced by them Intuo prosocutlonof
Ills Honor thought that tho Court would not
prevent a party from settling a caso, but It
was tho duty of tho Court to sen that It was
properly dono and not to tho detriment ot Its
own otucors. In this lnstanco lio did not
think it the Court had beon made conversant
with the case It would havo permitted the
discontinuance to be allowed. It thorowos
the slightest Indication that fraud had been
perpetrated upon tho attorneys, then the
Court ought to stop In and should decide
against tho defendants. Uo further
- held that tho attorneys for the plaintiffs woro
entitled to recelvo 33 per cent., tho amount
they were swindled out ot by tho worthless de
fendant and president ot the railroad com
pany. IIo directed that an order bo mado that
unlesB tho company pay to tho counsel within
thirty days 33 per cent, ot $3,000 tho caso
must uu rcirjcu.
