An aged, grizzled, weather beaten and
poorly clad colored man, giving his name
ns Robert Clark and his occupation that ot
a prophet, to-day called at the Fourth pre-,
clnct station for liio purpose of obtaining
Information and incidentally to rest his
aching limbs and weary feet.
In company with Clark were three col-r
orcd women who had shared with him tho
datigers, privations, trials and tribula
tions ot a four montlis' pedestrian: Journey
from Goldsboro, N'. C, to this city. The
quartette had ttarted the middle of May
and Just arrived to-day.
To The Times' reporter Mr. Clark stated
that he had come to Washington especially
to proclaim tiie approaching disgolutlou
of all things. Fur twelvu years be has
traveled through the South, following
his avocation ot prophet, und has warned
thousands of the wrath to come. Late In
the spring, when his rheumatism some
what abated, the Spirit commanded him
to undertake a pilgrimage to. Wastungton
and warn the officials ot this government
ami city to prepare- for the evil days that
will precede the termination ot time.
SrUXAI) WARNINGS BY THE WAY.
In pursuance ot his diWne instructions
Mr. Clark set forth, accompanied by the
three sinters, who, with the same eye ot
faith, saw the import ot the awful warn

A bait was made at each town along tlie
route traveled ard Mr Clark gave the in
habitants thereof timely notice ot their
opproaching destruction In return for
this cheerful intelligence, tfc-idry con
tributions of turds were made ith whio
necessary provisions were purchased.
Mr. Clark stated that great good -was ac
complished In ltirhmiicd. Rock Mount, and
especially Petersburg, among people of
all ehades and conditions.
As the- bearer of evil tidings approached
this city, Mr Clark considered it'eipediect
to take tome email precautions against
penury, having Itcen warned In a iheani of
the vagraLcy law s, and hence had prepared
the following Hurtling document, which
serves the double purpose of a pro
uunciaiuento and subscription, list:
"I take this way of asking the ptople

citizen had contributed 52.
Mr. Clark says that he will hold a series
of open air mettings here ami warn people
to flee from the approaching destruction
He expects to personally inform thq Pres
ident ot the dangers ahead, if an opportun
ity in afforded him. He holies to soon lie
reinforced by a famous white prophet
named Morgan, who is now in Norfolk en
route to- Washington.
Mr. Morgan travels in a gospel wagon
drawn by two gray horses and has some
reputation. If not money.
With tho asbtstaDce ot Mr. Morgan Mr.

PlHtorl'K Orchestra Wants Pay
Music on the Steamer.
A libel In admiralty was filed thU morn
ing against the steamer City of Richmond,
and, according loan order issued by Judge
Cox, unlev, her owner or manager mates
a sufficient deposit lo secure the claim
or the libelant, she will not deport on her
regular cruise to Norfolk at the usual
hour to-morrow evening.
The steps described were taken at the
suit of John N. Plstorlo, tbe leader of an
orchestra bearing his "name. Pistorio and
Ins musicians have fnrnished music for
tbe dancing toed 'excursion parties nn the
boat all the season.
Pay for tbe production of the harmonious
strains bas nbt 'always been forthcoming,
he rays, atdHhereis row a balance of $54
due on the rduiicbill. Mr, Pistorio 's attor
neys, Messrs"Nauck and Nauck. filed with
tbe libel as an exhibit a letter from the boat
people acknowledging the claim.
For falling lo comply with certain regu
lations Mn W. W. Winrree to-day lost two
contracts. Tbe rule laid down as govern
ing the submission ot bids, requires each
contractor to deposit $100 or as much as
may be prescribed with the collector ot
taxes and obtain a certificate of deposit,
which he must inclose with his sealed pro
posal. Upon opening tbe bids this morning It was
discovered tbat Mr. Wlnfree had in each
case Inclosed his individual check instead
of the collector's certificate, and Mr. J.
M. Dunn, another bidder. Immediately
filed a written protemvagahuC considera
tion oC cither of. the bids.
Tbe nils Is inexorable, and under it the
next lowest bidders will probably get the
contracts, as there are precedents for such
Tbe protesting contractor, Mr. Dunn, Is
the next lowest Udder la one case, and ia
the other his proposal ia a duplicate or
that presented by Mr. George W. Corbett.
The tiling of Dunn's protest gave rise to
another complication. The lowest bidder
on the GreenleaX School. Mr. C R. Monroe,
it is alleged, also failed to deposit tbe cer
tificate, and tbe next lowest. Messrs. Mel
ton A Watts, who learned this morning that
tbe omissioii was a fatal etfect.ga. notice
of a protect against tbe award ia tbat case.
OTHER JOBS INVOLVED.
Mr. Monroe was notified yesterday of tbe
