WASHINGTON NEWS NOTES,
Washington. December 22.
XHfl NINTH INFANTRY.-At Tlen-Tsin Captain
Ist* Hall, who is celebrated In sons and story as a
Texas ranger and who as a volunteer officer in the
Army commanded the late General Lawton's Maca
be.be scouts In the Philippines, has returned to
Washington, and a short time ago received an in
teresting letter from Major Jesse M. Lee describ
ing the assault on Ticn-Tsln. and particularly the
part In that affair taken by tho 9th Infantry. hen
Colonel Liscum was shot down Major Lee succeeded
to the command of the regiment. In his letter to
Captain Hall Major Lee says:
The story of the battle of Tien-Tsln which was
the big fight, you probably have seen. Some things
have been exaggerated In the papers, but 11 »as»
hard Mrugßle. a T bloody fight. My battalion lost 25
r^r cent of the force thai started out. By all
Strata I should have been knocked out, but
by some inscrutable dispensation of Providence I
was the only one of four of "Held and staff" who
£«£d f unhurt lam no hero, but have the proud
satisfaction of being recognized as one who did
hi« duty The Colonel (General Liscum) fell mor
ally wounded at 9 a. m. and the command de
volved upon me We held on under fire, some
tinges very hot until nightfall, and the battle being
ovor 1 succeeded in savins the balance of my com
mand, carrying off all our wounded and the bod y or
our Colonel. We were beyond all succor or as
sistance of any kind, «> It seemed. We held on like
grim death, and it was death In many cases Early
in the day. about 10:30 a. m.. I sent back for am
munition, but none cam*: for help to take off our
wounded but none came: for reinforcements, but
none appeared nearer than within one hundred and
fifty yards of us. My battalion adjutant, who took
the nWsaee and returned, was hit three times. It
has been surmised that our Colonel made a mistake
in putting us into the fight where we were. He
made no mistake. We brought out a little less
than the right's effective force. One battalion had
not got up the river, one company had been left as
miard. and one hundred men were sent "another
place. When forming we met a hot. destructive
flank fire. Our Colonel, Instead of getting his men
aw" v. did the soldierly thing of fronting and go ng
for that fire. So we met and took the fire, which
would have been poured into a column on our left
a f hort distance away. I feel Justly proud of my
comrades in the 9th for acquitting themselves as
true American soldiers.
MR. CARNEGIE "TOUCHED."- I The Star"
Fays:
Andrew Carnegie, of Pltti.burg. dotyr of j l^rarlei..
stepped out of the Shorcham Hotel yesterday morn
ing and started for Senator Hanna's residence, just
around the corner on Lafayette Square Two gen
tlemen who were waiting for him at the hotel ap
proached and asked for five minutes talk with him.
"All right." responded Mr. Carnegie, 'but just
walk along with me; I am behind time."
So they went along together and as they
walked the two gentlemen laid before Mr Car
negie the necessity for a public library at Fort
Dodge. lowa. They said Fort Dodge needed a
library the worst kind, and the way things were
soing it seemed that the only chance of get ting
one was for some great and good philanthropist
to give them one. They talked their .case for the
square and a half between the Shoreham ana
Senator Manna's house, and when the party
reached the Senator's door the library was 'won
"Surely." said Mr. Carnegie. "Fort Dodge shall
have a 'library building. L/et the city donate a
site and agree to maintain the library, and as
soon as this Is done draw on me for $30,000 for
th Ul t I w 1 o me^ o0 w d er 3 e ay Solicitor O'Connell and Di
rector of the Mint Roberts, of the Treasury De
partment. It was one of the most successful cases
of "touch" on the public streets on record.
A CURIOUS FITNESS TEST.— That the Admin
istration has resolved upon a policy of careful
retrenchment and strict economy in the expendi
ture of the public funds is abundantly demon
strated by the recent promotion of a clerk in the
Treasury to the important positic i of Fourth As
sistant Auditor of the Treasury for the Post
office Department. A vacancy at this post was
created by the promotion of A. C. Lawshe to be
Auditor for the Philippines. The President's at
tention was called to the fact that, aside from
experience and fitness, what was most needed In
the Fourth Assistant Auditor of the Treasury for
the Postofflce Department was a short name.
It was explained to Mr. McKinley that all this
official has to do is to pass upon account! i and > at
tach his signature to warrants but that there
is so much signing to do that a long name
would delay the transaction of public business in
the time required to write it several hundred
times a day. Furthermore, it was shown to the
President that by selecting a man in whose name
there were not' over six letters actually two
months a year would be saved to the Government
in the expedition of the -business of the Depart
ment Without further parley Mr. McKJnley ln
nructed the appointment clerk to pick a man
? lowering^ the requirements as to brevity of
Tiom«nclature as well as to experience and fitness.
Th? choice fell upon N. L. Chew, and the poli
tiJ-ians who insist upon being consulted whenever
ihp President has a vacancy to fill are now advis
lnK all constituents seeking places in the auditing
department of the Government to cut their names
down to the lowest possible number of letters.

PENNSYLVANIA LEADERS in poor
HEALTH.— The approach of the final struggle at
HarriKburg in the fierce Senatorial contest in Penn
sylvania Is a reminder that both of the chief gladi
ators in that contest are in poorer health than is
generally known. Reference Is made to Matthew
an ley Quay, of Beaver, and Christopher Magee,
of Pittsburg, who have been fighting each other for
twenty pears or more, and have In all that time
kept the politics of the Keystone State in terrible
turmoil. What the nature of Mr. Quay's Illness Is
only his family and physicians know, but that it
is serious mi shown by the fact that a few even
ings "before he left Washington, soon after the re
assembling of Congress, for his winter residence in
Florida, he had a sudden sinking spell which
aroused the gravest fears of his physicians and
family. Th. intimate friends of Mr. Magee are
awar<» that he is suffering from an affection which
may at any time remove him from active partici
pation in politics, if. indeed. It does not completely
cut Khort his career. At the same time, it is ex
pected that Quay and Magee will be at Harrisburg
whf-n the Legislature meets there next week, per
sonally to command their forces in the big battle
that if- scheduled to occur.
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY'S -Senator
Harris, Popocrat, of Kansas, takes an original view
of the agitation for reorganization of the Demo
cratic party. The Kansas statesman, who, by the
way. was a Confederate soldier and represents a
State in which there are more Union soldier draw
ing pensions than there are relatively In any other
Stale, declares that if the Democracy is reorgan
ized with the view of eliminating Populism from
Its make in., it will generate fiercer sectionalism
in the country than has existed for twenty years.
>!«> argues thai if Populism is lopped off from the
Democracy .all that will be left of the latter party
will b« in thf South, and In such an arrangement
as this the Populists of the West could never be
Induced to co-operate.
THE SPECTACULAR A POLITICS.
SOME CAMPAIGN CUSTOMS OF THE PAST.
From Leslie's Weekly.
Ti.. first time that there were any demonstra
tions of a ep<-ctacular order in a Presidential cam
¦atcn was In IHO, when miniature log cabins were
drawn on wagons in the Whig processions, escorted
by companies* of men in coonskin caps, and some
in the garb of Indians, all of which were suggested
\>y the early life of the candidate, William Henry
Harrison. Companies of men dressed as pioneers
Brinar^d in the Fremont processions In the cam
paign of ISO 6, and "prairie schooners" were a feat
ure of these demonstrations. Illustrating phases In
the life of the Pathfinder of the Rockies and the
Sierra Nevada s.
In ISCO the Republicans had companies of rail
splitters, to represent Lincoln In one of his activi
ties as a young man on the frontier. The most
picturesque and distinctive feature of the Repub
lican parade* in that year, however, were the
*rW id*-awak<')s." This order originated In Hartford
Conn and was not suggested by Lincoln's own
candidacy, for one of the Hartford "Wideawake-
Hubs was formed before Lincoln was nominated
and escorted him to one of the halls in that city'
where he made a speech, on his visit to the East
in February. 1860. At that time Seward's nomina
tion was believed in the Eastern States, to be in
evitable. The "Wideawake" idea quickly spread
all over the North after the nomination of Lin"oln
and .J? a lln In May of that > ear - and it Is esti
mated that there were more than two hundred
thousand "Wideawakes" In the free States In that

REAL ESTATE.
The various transactions In the real estate mar
ket last week were not In the main of such par
ticular Importance as those of the preceding week.
Property In the vicinity of Flfth-ave. figured most
prominently In the week's budget.
The sale of the greatest general Interest was
that of four lots on the north side of Nlnety-ftrst-
Bt., near Flfth-ave., by Andrew Carnegie to Will
iam D. Sloane. This sale was reported on Friday.
In its relation to the northern boundary of the "ex
clusive section" this sale Is like corroborative testi
mony—lt tends to settle the question beyond doubt.
This northward movement of the boundary line
began two years ago, when Andrew Carnegie
bought the two block fronts In Flfth-ave. between
Ninetieth and Ninety-second sts., and built a house
for himself on the southerly block. This sale re
sulted in a boom in the upper Fifth-aye. property
fronting on Central Park, and before It subsided, in
May 1899, three and one-half block fronts In the
neighborhood had passed into new hands. Since
that time there have been few sales, owing to the
excessive demands made by some of the buyers
who invested for speculative purposes. It is re
ported that Mr. Sloare Is to build two residences
on his purchase for two sons-in-law, John H. Ham
mond and James A. Abercrombie Burden, Jr. These
men bought the northeast corner of Fifth-aye. and
One-hundred-and-second-st. when the northward
movement began, but did not build.
Another piece of Flfth-ave. property, the transfer
of which was made public last week, was that of
No. 394. George C. Boldt, of the Waldorf-Astoria
Hotel, became its owner by the transaction. The
building stands between Thirty-sixth and Thirty
seventh sts. It Is a business structure, and is a
good Investment, as it is rented at particularly ad
vantageous terms.
It was reported yesterday that a client of Divid
Stewart had purchased the mercantile building at
Nos. 483 and 485 Fifth-aye. from the estate of
Mayer Kahn. The building is seven stories high
and stands on a plot 32.11x100. It faces the old
reservoir and the new library site. The buyer Is
said to be an out-of-town Investor, who paid cash.
The Iroquois apartment house, in West Forty
fourth-st., sold for cash, was another transfer In
the neighborhood of Fifth-aye.
The air about Longacre Square was filled all the
week with 6torles of new theatres to be built in the
neighborhood.
The sale was reported yesterday morning of Nos.
73 to 79 Fulton-st., northeast corner of Gold-st.,
a six story building, to ex-Mayor Charles A.
prhleren of Brooklyn. The building was owned
by the estate of the late John T. Wilson. It was
valued at $250,000 by the estate.
Some other good transactions reported last week
were the sale by Charles T. Barney of the block
front on the east side of Broadway between
Eißhty-fifth and Eighty-sixth sts.; the purchase by
a builder, who Intends to erect a ten story apart
ment hotel on the site, of the southwest corner of
Broadway and Sixty-seventh-st.. and the purchase
of the northeast corner of Broadway and One-hun-
Ored-and-flrst-st. by Flake & Dowling.
THE MORSE BUILDING ALTERATIONS.
Plans for alterations to the Morse Building, on
the northeast corner of Beekman and Nassau ets.,
were submitted at the Department of Buildings
yesterday by Charles W. Hall, through the archi
tects, Bannister & Schell. The Improvements will

BRYAN L KENNELLT & CO., 7 Pine St.
Seventy-third to Seventy-fourth-st. The other Is
Hamilton M. Weed's twelve -story apartment
house, at the northeast corner of Broadway and
Seventy-flrst-st. and the third is the eight story
Astor apartment house, at the northwest corner
of Seventy-flfth-Bt. and Broadway. According to
present indications, the three buildings may pos
sibly be completed by this time next year. Mr.
Weed's apartment house will probably be finished
by October. Its architecture is of an ornate
character, being designed after the style of the
French Renaissance, by Janes & Leo, who were
also the architects of Mr. Weed's former apart
ment house enterprise, the Allmar, at One-hun
dred-and-flfth-st. and West End-aye. The present
building will be notable for various innovations,
among which a storage room for automobiles may
be mentioned as one of the twentieth century
novelties that Is likely to be a feature of all future
high class apartment houses. There will be four
apartments to a floor, arranged In ten. eight, seven
and five room suites. There being private resi
dences with large yards in the rear and at the
side of the building, every room in it will have
a free and clear outlook. As for the Stokes Hotel,
the builder Is averee to giving any information as
to the manner of Its future conduct. It !s said on
good authority, however, that the house will bo
conducted after the style of the Majestic. Paul
Duboy, the architect, has so planned the interior
construction that tenants may secure apart
ments varying from two to almost any number of
rooms.
There la not a real estate agent on the West
Side who comes In personal contact with tenants
of apartments but what agrees with the opinion
repeatedly expressed In this column that the ktt
chenless apartment, or the house providing res
taurant conveniences, offers greater opportunities
for profitable returns than any other kind of prop
erty. The evolution- of metropolitan life Is show
ing a constant increase In the demand for this
kind of accommodation. The servant girl question
is continuing to drive people Into apartment hotels.
Every one In this city Is fully tenanted. In spite of
the exorbitant rents and the fancy prices charged
for meals. If. instead of building the conventional
housekeeping apartments, the uptown builder were
to devote himself to solving the problem of pro
viding accommodations of the kind furnlsned in
apartment hotels, but at prices within the reach
of the great majority, his profits would be a thou
sand times surer than they are with the sort of
house of which there Is already a surfeit. If
builders will build and operators will operate,
then the best thing to do is to try to meet that
for which there is ¦ demand.
According to West End real estate brokers, con
siderable inquiry for and quiet investigation of
properties along the route of the underground road
have been going on of late. If one-third of the deals
that are reported as "hanging fire" should be con
summated, the dawn of the new century will be
under auspices so promising as to warrant the
expectation of the final arrival of the long lookf-rf
for boom of the upper West End.
