WILSON'S INAUGURAL LEHER -
ENDS PROGRAMME FOR BALL;
Committee Will Respect President-elect's
Preference that
Dance Be Omited.
CITIZENS OF CAPITAL n
FEEL DISAPPOINTED
Chairman Eustis Will Read Letter This
Morning Special Meeting Is
Called for Monday.
President-elect Wilson's letter to In
augural Chairman W. C Eustis, vlrtuall)
disapproving of plans for an Inaugural
ball, was receded at committee head
quarters in the Ken YMIlard late last
night, but Mr Eustis has not received
It, and. therefore, plans for all the In
augural ceremoni-s are still halted.
Actual receipt of the letter, which was
published )esterdav. Is expected to bo
followed by statements trom Mr Eusfls
and. his subcommittee chairmen as tc
what plans would non be suggested
That the dance will be omitted con
linues to be the accepted belief, for while
-Mr Lustls, whoe communication from
Gov Wilson had not then been receUed
at headquarters, again dec'lned to com
ment upon the letter, it is known that he
has taken the petition that the wishes of
th President-elect will be respected

which was first suggested several weeks

While there has been a gracious abe)
nnce to the suggested preferences oMhe
1 resident elect, the people of "Washington
seemed greatl) disappointed that the In
augural ball probablv would be omitted
and there is apparent a general desire
thdt If the ball Is not held there be a
reception of some kind at which the
ctlzens of Washington may welcome
"The Major of the Capital '
Reports ent throughout the country

zens declare.
LETTER NOT RECEIVED;
PLANS UP IN THE AIR;
SUGGESTIONS MANY
The momentous question of what shall
' e done about the ball will be taken up
to day In a number of conferences be
tween the members of the committee
There Is to be a meeting of the in
rugurat committee Monday morning at
1' o clock, but before that time the mem-lx-rs
will consult among themselves and
l the time the meeting is opened there
p ohahl will be some suggestion to le
j ut before Hie bod) George K Hamil
ton chairman of the legislative commit
tee appeared before the House Commit
t -e on Public Buildings and Grounds
Jesterdaj morning and requested that
the hearing on the bill providing for the
t e of the Pension Office be postponed
urtll Tuesda) morning This will be
done, and the Senate committee has also
erased activities until some plan is sug
Festcd b) the inaugural committee.
Yesterday the nonappearance of Gov
W ilson s letter kept even gue"ses and
suppositions as to the probable pro
gramme of the inaugural ceremonies "up
In the air Most of the members of the
committee were loath to discuss the mat
ter or express themselves In the sllght
et detail as to what should be done until
the letter of the President-elect was
actually In the hands of the committee
There was one point, however, on which
c I wer.e agreed and that was that the
Inaugural ball, which for 100 years has
leen the accepted function at the In
duction of a President of the United
fciates, has now passed Into hlstorv That
the ball will bo stricken from the pro
pramme of Inaugural week there is little
doubt
A substitute Is now the point to be de
termined. Of these there are several un
official!) suggested )esterda), but the one
that met with the most general favor
was that of a Presidential reception.
This was suggested some time ago before
the bill asking for the use of the Pension
Office was Introduced Into Congress, bat
now It Is taken un again as the onl)
hope left
nCKeta Iteceptlon.
One of the exponents of this rorm of
fecial event for the inaugural Is Percy S
ester, chairman or the committee on
music at the ball He suggests that the
ball be turned Into a reception that shall
open with music for the first hour, a
reception b) the President probably rrom
8 until 10 3D o clock, and music again
from that time on td midnight.
Most of those who have favored th
reception idea have felt that It would
obviate the troublesome feature of over
renting the objection of Congress to the
tike of the Pension Office as the recep
tion could be held in tne rotunda ot tno
Capitol. Mr Foster does not hold this
Jdea.
"I have ever) respect for the wrlsh of
President-elect Wilson." said Mr. Fos-
ter. 'but 1 do not feel that he would
have any objection to the reception held
In the Pension Office. In the first place
the government would not suffer any
great loss b) giving over the building ror

ton. 11(1 . situated a few miles below
Washington on the Potomac rtlver
There has been much malaria there, and
the scheme was hit upon of having a
hfrd of goats turned loose on the post
reservation to eat up the long grass
which. It is bilievcd. fosters Oie mos
quitoes who carry the disease The Idea
was considered a good one, hut It has
taken much unwinding of red tape to
put It into execution
First, some one discovered that there
vas a groat deal of poison Ivj at the
fort, and It was feared that goats might
commit suicide unintentionally b eating
the poison Ivl. The Department of
.Agriculture was called upon to settle
this question and an expert ruled that
goats might tat poison Ivj If n mod
erationwithout Injurj to their Inferiors
It was admitted, however, that goats
cannot tat everything, and the depart
ment expert sa'd the army goats must
beware of mountain laurel In the spring
time when the laurel buds.
Then It was feared that the Var De
partment lacked authority to spend
money for the -purchase of goats Tho
situation was unprecedented, and a legal
opinion was asked The ruling now is
that the goats may proper be pur
chased If the money Is taken from the

NEVER FOUGHT A DUEL
VIRGINIA JUDGE TAKES OATH
NOR TOOK A CHALLENGE
Formal oath that he has not fought
a. duel nor accepted a challenge since
the adoption of the present Constitu
tion of Virginia, and that he will not
light & duel nor accept a. challenge, was
taken at Alexandria yesterday by Judge
Louis C Barley, beginning another term
on the bench In the Corporation Court. In
accordance with the ancient ceremonial
of Virginia.
The decdaratlon that he has not par
ticipated and will not participate in the
duello Is the most striking of the old
oath, which was taken before Clerk K.
8. Grenaway.
Judge Barley went on the bench In
1902, succeeding Judge J KN M. Morton,
resigned. He was elected by thev. Legis
lature In 1906 for a term of six years,
and now his term Is for a period ot eight
years, the Legislature having Increased

Gov. Snlxer pardoned the former valet
of Mortimer L. Schlft at 3.30 o'clock: this
afternoon.
Pledging himself to reform, the youns
man for whose release from a thlrt)
year prison term, a year's campaign
with Gov. Dlx waa successfully waged,
this evening started for Minnesota.
There through the philanthropy of Sena
tor Knule Nelson and Mlrabeau I
Towns, he Is pledged to lead "an hon
est, respectable and Industrious life."
After receiving his pardon, Brandt, ac
companied b) Senator Knute Nelon and
Mr. Towns boarded a train bound for
New Tork
It was within a half hour after a
curious, sympathetic asaemblege had
packed the executive chamber to wit
ness the event that Gov Sulzer. looking
straight at Brandt, who stood up between
Warden Kaiser and a deputy from Den
nemora prison said
"Brandt. I am going to trust )on. Her

The Governor handed to Potter a goM
script document, bearing the formal
terms of pardon, but containing In ink
this stipulation, subject to the follow Ins
conditions.
Formal Teriua of Pardon.
' Upon the application for this pardon.
Foulke E. Brandt, as a candidate to i-e-curing
the pardon, solcmnl) promised
that he would not appear in public, upon
the stage, or otherwise. In connection
with his case or seek to gain notorietv
by writing the history thereof, or bv
discussing It in public for pay or other
wise He also assured the Governor
that whatever statements he has made
m wrltlnK or otherwise reflecting upon
the character of an) person connected
with the case is absolutely false, and as
a further condition to securing this
pardon. Brandt has promised not to re
peat such assertions
"A violation of either of these prom
ises will be remembered as sufficient to
revoke this pardon and cause him to be.
remanded to, prison "
When Clerk Potter had flnlrjied read
ing the document. Brandt, all the time
standing and smiling his thankfulness
the Governor turned to the prisoner and
said.
Brandt, do )OU aree to the con
ditions" I do. ' replied Brandt. Then he walk
