Tlie iwtuc-st on Walter Acton, the young
man wlm met hi' dentil at the new Library
Ilullrting jestcrday' afternoon, was held
at the Firn precinct station on Tweltth
Bireet this affrooon at 1 o'clock.
Dr. Ilnmmett conducted the Investiga
tion. After the Jury was empaneled it
was found Unit only one witness had been
summoned, contrary to the express orders
of the coroner.
His order was mibinterpreted and the
coroner found It necessary to commence
the investigation with but one witness,.
Mr. Joliu Chambers, local superintendent
of the Sneed & Company Iron Works, of
Mr. Clumbers was an eje-witness to
young Acton's death.
"I was standing on tbe scaffolding
around the 'main staircase. said he.
"when mj attention was directed to a
falling bod j. I immediately looked op
and saw joung Acton In his descent. He
fell to tbe ground f I.Kir and was Instantly
"Our foreman was on the same floor
with him. but he did not see the necident "
"I made inquiry among the employes
immediately after the accident, and found
that young Acton had been to the foreman
of tbe painters' gang and borrowed a lad
der. What he wanted with a ladder is be
yond my conjecture, as he was onlv em
ployed as a water boy ard bad no ixjfslble
use for It.
"The eppositlon Is lie cither tripped or
fell, and as there was no Euppnrt to catch
bim his death was inevitable." "
Tbe Jury at this point made a request to
see the scene of the accident and were taken
to the new library building for that pur

FUMED FOR LICENSES
Arguments Heard on Six Long
BARS FOB COLORED MEN
Mr. Lnngston Argues That First-class
riHCen for the Itace bliould Be Al
lowedFew Colored Saloons Mr.
Brady's Heport on the Protested
School Building Contracts.
Tbe board of excise took up for con
sideration to-day the six applications
for bar licenses that have been pending
since the first "of November last.
As recently stated in The Times, these
cases were held up on account of objections
filed, und In order that clue Investigation
might be made, final, consideration has
from time to time been postponed, but the
near approach of the new license year
bastend a decision.
The chief anxiety of the applicants Is to
obtain the license la regular form, so that
renew al in November will be bumpered by
no outside entanglements, tbe established
saloon not being required to obtain the
consent of tbe adjacent residents.
The first Incident of the session was the
speech made by Attorney J. M. Lnngston,
in behalf of Robert H. Key, whose saloon
is at No. 311 Third streetsouthwest.
Mr. Lnngston assured the board that
Key represents as fairly and thoroughly as
any other man ran the Intelligence and
respectability of his race. He, Mr. Laug
slon. Is not himself a drinker, out he thought
as a matter of'Justlce that eucb colored
men ns desired to drink should have the
privilege of patronizing a respectable man
of their own race.
FEW COLORED SALOONS.
He showed that while the colored people
number 100,000, or about one-third of the
District's population, there ore bat seven
colored saloon-keepers out of a total of
300 holding licenses. Colored people, be
said, may enter many of tbe saloons, but
not the best class, and be thought It to bo
a matter of Justice that they should have
this one decent place to patronize where
they can be treated right.
In listening to Mr. Langston'o argu
ment the board necessarily Ignored the rule
some time since adopted of requiring the
submission of a brief in lien of a personal
appeal, but as Mr. Lnngston was unaware
of such an order ho was not Interrupted.
When Mr. Shllllngton and others after
ward appealed for their clients, the board
declined each time to Interrere, and there
were several speeches made.
The six applicants whose papers are now
before the board are w. A. Eiinnantronr,
No. 901 F street southwest; James Wll
lams. No. 334 B street southwest; Jolm
F. Kelly, No. 332 B street southwest:
Edward Murphy, No. 1105 Twentj-flw

No. 1130 Twenty first street north est.
A WIDOWS APPLICATION.
There was an earnest appeal made In
belialf of the latter applicant, the woman
being represented as a widow, betwec
53 and 60 years of age, who has no other
means of support. Her married daughter
was protentjlo verify this statement.
The boardMstated that their decision
will not lie rendered In either case foe
several days, and the attorneys In one case
was given until Tuesday next to file

tlon In a Strange Manner.
Omaha, Neb., Sept. 14. A remarkable
death occurred here yesterday. Miss
Jessie Allan, for the past twelve years
city librarian, and one of the best In the
the country, died this morning from con
sumption. Miss Allan's death is a lesson
which every city and every library board
may well heed.
Sr. Summers, her physician, says that
undoubtedly she contracted the .disease
while handling books in the library which
had In them the bacillus of tuberculosis,
which got there through being read by per
sons afflicted with the disease.
Medically speaking, her family history Is
good, and no consumptive can be found,
tracing the family back for several genera
tions. In dusting books which had been
read by persons arrilcted. Miss Allan caught
the germ from the dried sputum of afflicted
persons. Had shebeen In a tHrfectly healthy
condition at tbe time she would have re
sisted the disease.
There is a. rule at the library that any
person found to have contagious diseases
or to be exposed to them shall be de
barred the prtt lieges or the library until
he shall lie able to bring a certificate
rrora the board of health to the effect
that all danger of contagion is past- Up

list, but since that time, every precaution

MANY CHILDREN SHELTERED
From Various Causes the Institution
Is Kept Well Filled and Is In a
Flourishing Condition Home Are
Found for Its Wards Its lte-celpts
andExpendltures During; Fast Year.
Acting President John D. Henderson, of
tbe Industrial Home Schools, to-day sub
mitted through Colonel John Tracy, Super
intendent of Charities, a report of the
operations of that institution for the past
fbcal year, from which tbe following ex
tracts are taken.
"Our own wards at the beginning of the
fiscal jenr numbered. 62, and we had 14,
ot the Board of Guurdlaus, making 76.
We received during the year 71 others,
ot our own, 63, and of tbe Goardians', 18.
We discharged lu the same jcar, 48, of
our own, 27, and of tbe Guardians', 21,
acid we had at the close of the year 99

"Of the 27 wards whom we discharged,
6 were placed In situations to earn monthly
wages One ot these bad been with us
six years, and each of the others three
years. Six were placed in homes where
tbey will be properly tared for and pre
pared to earn a living; four of there had
been with us several years, and two for
only a few months. Eleven were returned
to pa rents or relatives.
"These had been with us only a few
months. They had mostly been found
deserted and suffering, but after brief
search their parents carue forward, or were
found. Three after admission, ia ere found
In a state of health unfitting them to be
retained and v ere placed elsewhere, and
two were abscuiided.
"It thus appears that ordinarily only
after a considerable residence and prepara
tion have we been able to find situations
or homes for destitute and neglected, chil
dren, and that we mutt expect to retain
for a considerable period all that we once
GENERAL HEALTH GOOD.
"In the health of our Inmates we have
been particularly fortunate, during the
entire term ot our present superintendent.
"The school Is a branch of the publio
school system ot the District, and is
taught by a male and female teacher
of that corps. The pupils are taught tbe
same . branches that other public school
pupils learn. In addition the girls are
taught to cut out and make garments, and
In fact mako much of the clothing for all
the children. They are also taught to
cook and to do such housework as every
woman should become competent to per
form. "The loys beside their lessons In school
are taught to do all tbe work required on
the place, which Includes carpentering
and farm and garden work, particularly
NEEDS AND ESTIMATES.
At present we have three green hous
es, a rose house, a. propagating house, re
quiring a high temperature, and a cool
house for such plants aa violets and carna
tions. Another greenhouse is needed for
chrysanthemums. Such a one as desired
could be built for $000.
"The expense of this branch, including
commissions paid to the boys during tbe
year, were $596 81;salary ot florist, $480;
total expense, $1,076 81. The receipts
were" $893 62. The expense of healing
Is not included In the above, which would
perhaps amount to $500 more
"From the report ot the treasurer It will
be keen that the revenue of the school dur
ing the last fiscal year amounted to $12,
999 65, derived almost entirely from three
sources the appropriation by Congress,
$9,900; tbe sales or products ot the work
shop, gardens and greenhouses, $1,151.47,
and $1,724.66 paid by tbe board of chil
dren's guardalns for tbe support of certain
of their ward placed in our charge. The
expenditures during' the same year amount

gressional appropriation and left a defi

Gold Shipment Scare Affects StockB
Less Than Was Expected.
Little Doubt That tbe Banks Will
Help the Treasury to Maintain
All the Heserve Necessary.
New York, Sept. 14 On large transac
tions a lower range of prices was estab
lished al tbo stock exchange this morning.
Holders or speculative lines of stock were
nervous, and at every opportunity were re
ducing their load.
The outlook Tor large exports of gold
next week was the factor at work. Accord
ing to report, other members ot the syndi
cate beside Lazard Freres would, be com
pelled to remit next week. As It is impos
sible to obtain bills the remittances will
have to be made lu gold.
It Is expected, however, that the national
hanks of this city will turn in considerable
amounts ot the metal which will offset
In a measure the steady drain for export
It is expected that the government will
gain not a little gold throagh the exi hange
of small notes for the melal as its rates ore

large scale and the dealing attended with
more excitement than of late. At 11 o'clock
the market wasbeavy, but recoveredsllghtly.

There is strong hope that strikers and

Washing-ton public the ideal place of this country.
Within five minutes' walk of the State, War and Navy
building- we have an inclosed area of over 100,000 square
feet, encircled by a bicycle track with high banking, so
that our riding surface is without posts, walls, fences or
obstructions of any kind. The surface has been scraped
and rolled until it is as smooth as a billiard table.
Inside the race track we have laid out a cycle path
twenty-five feet wide, which will be reserved for practice
riding by the more proficient riders or by those desiring
to get the benefit of this health-giving exercise away from
the publicity of the open streets and roads.
Instruction in Riding,-
Within the oval there will always be present a corps
of competent instructors, who will not only teach the ele
ments of riding, but will pay particular attention to form
The historic old Van Ness mansion stands at the edge
of the track, and the parlor will be fitted up as a ladies'
sitting room, with dressing and toilet room attached.
Notwithstanding the great expense in securing this
field, preparing it for bicycle use, and furnishing- the
mansion for the comfort of our patrons, we have deter
mined to reduce the price of instruction, believing that
the greatly increased patronage will demonstrate the wis
dom of such a move.
