BOWIE WOULDN'T TREAT.
ANU "WASHINGTON ATTEMPTED TO
STAM HIM TO THE IIEA11T.
Xho Assaulted Mnn Got Possession of
tlio Knifo nnil Almost Dlsoinbfnvoloil
111b Assailant Mowlo Itadly Cut In
Last night nbout7:80 o'clock George Bowie,
a laboring man employed at tho warc-houso of
Mr. James II. McGill, on Dolawaro avenuo
northeast, wns coing to his home, No. d22
Delaware avenue, when he was stopped by
"3harlea Washington and Jake Bnlnn. These two
had just emerged from tho saloon of George
Leary, at the corner of R street and Delaware
aveuuc, and socing Bowie asked him to go In
side and treat them. Bowlo replied that ho
only had fifteen cents, and as ho wanted that
for another purpose ho could not ac
commodate them. Tho men then
entered Into a discussion as to the
treating, Washington and Bolan In
sisting on Bowlo spending tho fifteen cent3
In order to get them drink, and each grabbed
hold of bis arms to forco him to do as they
wished. Ho pulled away from them and
started toward home, but Washington, not to
bo deprived of his drink, pulled a large knifo
and 6aid with an oath, "You will treat," and
unado a lunge ut Bowio'a heart. The knife
glanced oil, striking Bowioin the side, cutting
a long and deep hlnsh from tho sixth to the
tenth rib. As soon as Bowie discoveied that
he was cut ho made a savage ruBh on Wash
ington und using his list in a good
wa ' pounded his assnllant about the
face, grabbed the knife out of his
hand, and cut him - four times
about tho body, one cut extending clear across
his stomach and literally disemboweling him.
The scene of the affray is away out toward
Kendall Green, in a lonely .spot, but
the police were quicklyon hand and had tho
three principals under .arrest. Bowie was
eent to the Emergency Hospital, where Drs.
Hall and Boss dressed his wounds, and where
he is uow held in custody. Washington was
sent immediately. to Provldonco Hospital for
treatment, but lh,e physiciau in charge said his
case was a hopeless one audit would only bo a
question of a few lldurs ero ho died. Bolan
was arrested and now hold at tho Ninth
Precinct as an accomplice1. All the parties to
the affray are colored.
The Railroad to Aldington.
Considerable interest Is' being shown by
business men in the proposed railroad from
Washington to Arlington and $05,000 worth of
the stock was disposed of last week at the
office of the coinpany.iBoom G8 in the Corcoran
Building. This road will not only carry
passengers to nnd from Arlington, but will
-also extend to Fort Myer, Alexandria, Falls
-Church, and Mount Vernon. The projectors
of the road are energetic capitalists, who are
determined to begin preliminary work early
next month and to push it to completion.
'They aro men who have had long and success
ful experience in the construction and oper
ating of street railroads and who look upon
the franchise which they have acquired as be
ing of the most valuable character. The road
will begin at the Baltimore and Potomac Rail
road dopotand run along B street' to Virginia
avenue, thence to the Washington, and George
town Railroad tracks, through Georgetown,
and across to Virginia over a bridge to be
erected. The plans and specifications for
this structure are now ready for submission
vto the Secretary of War. '

Fell Under a Cable Car.
Willlo Adams, a small boy living at 807 F
street southwest, amuses himself jumping on
and off cable cars. Last evening he jumped
on a car going south, and on reaching I

OPENING OF BAY RIDGE.
&. DoligUtful Excui-Hion Party Taken
Out ly B. & O. Oillcials.
A party of newspaper men under the chaper
onago otMrT'STBriloge, city passenger agent
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, pulled
out of the 'Baltimore and Ohio depot at 1:30
yesterday afternoon, tho guests of tho
Baltimore and Ohio, to assist at the openingof
Bay Ridge. Th.o trip from beginning to end
was aipractical evidence of the fact that tho
Baltimore and Ohio never does anything by
halves. From tho elegantly appointed train
that made tho trip over in about fifty minutes
to the bounteous supper in tho commodious
pavilion, nothing was omitted to render the
excurslottperfect. So carefully wero all the
details planned that not a moment was lost
until tho guests wero safely landed In town at
7:30, having In about six hours traveled nearly
one hundred miles by rail, taken In the
beauties of two summer resorts." enjoyed a
delightful salL on the Chesapeake, partaken
of an. ample lunch and a satisfying supper,
and participated in tho opening of Bay Ridge
for the season of 1891.
Of Bay Ridge there is littf e to say that has
not already been told and of which tho people
of Washington have not practical knowledge.
It may be said, however, that this popular re
sort has been renovated and improved in
many respects. At this point tho party
boarded a steam launch, and as tho guests of
the Chesapeake and Columbia Investment
Company proceeded to that new aspirant for
popular favor lying between tho Chesapeake
and Fishing Covo, known as Arundel-on-tho
Bay. To the visitors this delightful spot was
a revelation. Situated on a high bluff, overlook
ing tho -bay, heavily wooded to tho vorgo, with
Bay Ridge plainly in sight, and in front the
whole expanse of ono of tho finest bodies of
water on tho coast, it presents a rare combina
tion of beach and woodland. Tho tract is
laid off into avenues, streets, blocks, and
lots. Many cottages have already been
erected and others aro under contract. A
modern inn, a club-house and pavilion, bowl
ing alleyB, ana a 600-foot pier aro among tho
designs of tho owners of Arundel-on-the-Bay.
Among tho party were F. H. Noyes, of tho
Star; A. Walmsley, of the Post; J. L. John
son, of tho Hatchet; W, Koch, of tho Journal;
S. C. Abbott and W. II. Guthrldgo, of tho
Republic; Louis Schado , of tho Sentinel; C.
M. Gedmus and C. A. Bates, of tho National
View; W. H. Lepley and Milton E, Smith, of
tho Church News, and the representative of
The SundaV Herald, as well as the follow
ing officers of tho Chesapeake and
Columbia Investment Company: President
Thomas W. Smith, vice presldens of tho
National Capital Bank; Vice President Dr.
W. P. 0. Hazeh; Secretary T. D. Keleher,
disbursing &fllco Sixth Auditor's Ofllce, and
Treasurer Nicholas II. Shea, Hon. W. J.
Rannels, of the Department of Justice; Col,
J. A. Rosecrans, George S. Cooper, C. H.
McDermott, of tho War Department, and
Hundreds of "Would-be Detectives.
Tho District Appropriation bill passed at
the last session of Congress made provision
for the addition of four mon to tho detective
forco of the District. These appointments
will not bo madq until after tho 1st of July,
but already Ala j. Mooro is belug worried inces
santly by applicants for tho places. There
are oyqr three hundred applications on file
from tbe members of the District police and
detectives of this city, and from other cities.
The disposition Is to select the detectives from
tho police of the District If fitting mon can be
found among them. It is believed, however,
that no final decision has been reached in tho
"Faust Beer" takes the lead.

Reviving the Bal Masque.
San Francisco Argonaut.
In London, recently, a young woman ap
peared at tho mask ball In Covent Gaiden ar
rayed in Egyptian gauzes, and tho effect was
so striking that an attendant was sent to her
by tho management with word that she must
immediately cloak herself or leave tho building.
She was a delight to the eye, but a serious
menace to tho event, tor this ball had been
planned by Mr. Augustus Harris on lines of
the severest decorum. Let It bo said that tho
transparent young lady at onco enveloped
herself in a rose-colored domino, and thus
screened tho only wicked beauty of tho im
posing occasion from general scrutiny. It is
a fact that, uutil very lately, London has not
known such a thing as a public costumo ball.
Up to tho present season such functions wero
regarded with grave apprehensions by tho
authorities. It was justly believed that a
fancy ball would sorvo to assomblo tho fever
ish revelers in a gorgeous carnival of unwhole
some mirth, and, therefore, all previous efforts
to got up an affair of tho kind have been frown
ed down. Mr. Augustus Harris, however, who
Is treasured by tho press and public of London
as a sort of tin god of high lustro, made up
his mind to bring tho thing to pass, and,
behold I ho has most successfully done so. Mr.
Harris has not only been lord high sheriff of
London, but ho has staged tho handsomest
pantomimes and managed tho grandest operas
that tho city has over seen. Therefore he had
the confidence of the whole kingdom when ho
organized tho costumo ball. It took place, and
was repeated with immense triumph at Covent
Garden, and was honored by tho presence of
the Princo of Wales, who, it is said, thought
tho lady iu tho Egyptian gauzes was need
lessly interfered with.
Wero Byron ana Shelley Cutis ?
It is always a mark of tho woll-bred and of
the people of wido experience, to take It for
granted that there is in every life much that is
hard to boar, much that breeds tears and
6ighs, aud to leave such matters on ono Bldo
and out of sight and to do what ono can to
alleviate tho wounds and worries of existence
this Is tho solf-control of culture while tho
animal moans and gulps and advertises his
pains everywhere and whenever ho feels hurt
by them. That is tho reason why one always
feels there was something of tho "cad" about
Byron aud Shelley, whife Scott with his tre
mendous stress and strain and physical pain
always seems a raro example of tho finely,
