HOTEL CIStS HELD Mr
Applications for License Depend
on Fire Escape Law.

and Otbcr Safety DeTleen Many Ali-
Iillcunts Want Authority to Sell
Llciuor Dally Orders Insaed.
The hotel proprietors of the city gen
erally seem to have merlonked the fact
that In addition to the fire escape required
by law as a requisite to the renewal uf
their license to entertain, there Is another
equally binding section of the same gen
eral law that must be observed.
The law or 1887, which Is still In force,
with late amendments, requires that in
all hotels, factories, manufactories, work
shops, schools, seminaries, colleges, hos
pitals, asjlums, halls or places f amuse;
meet or other places inenliontd In the net,,
the halls and ntulrwajs shall be properly
lighted, when occupkd, at night. '
It Is cpctlficaliy provided that at the
head and foot of eaiti flight or stairs and
at the intersection uf all hallnujs with
main corridors there shall be kept during
thenighta red light, and oaeortuorepropcr
alanusor gongs tor use in eat n of the tiuna
lugs shall always remain easy of access
and ready for ufe, to give notlee to .'the
imitates In lasc of fire. There shall ako
do Uept ixjuspkuously posted in every
sleeping room a notice descriptive of the
means of escape.
The building itupeclur and chief engineer
the former being charged with Ihe duty of
KUVEIt HEi;.V ENFORCED.
Notwithstanding the law has been on the
statute books since 1887, It has nctcr
been enforced, for the reaoon that there was
no penalty for non-compliance, anil the
means of exacting obedience now WJS nut
provided until the law was amended by
the last Congress, and then only us against
businesses requiring a license.
Hotels come within the class last men
tioned, and When the proprietors filed their
appllcatlons for renewal for next year they
were confronted with the changed condi
tion. The gongs, the red lights, the ar
rangement for Illuminating the halls and
stairways must all be pmtided and certi
fied to before' the assessor can Issue the
license In any case.
AssUtant Building Inspector Vermillion
has been since the first of the month de
moting all the time he can spare from his
other dutl to the work of Inspection,
Xianv. If not all. of the nromlnent hotels In '
the city were found to be minus the lesser
requisites, cjn when the fire escapes were
8liown to be in conformity with the law.
Tlie presence of the tscapes was Insuf
ficient, for the amended act says ''it shall
be unlawful" to issue a license without
tlie application therefor is accompanied
by n. certificate of Uie building Inspector
that the provisions are all complied with.
There are said to be still a nurulRT of
defects in this Important, law, the more
t prominent of which lu e heretofore ben
noted iu The Times, and it Is quite certain
that Congress will be asVitl to further
NUMUER OF APPLICANTS .
Two hundred applications for liquor li
cense have been already placed in the
hands of the police by Cleric William'!, of
the excise board, for theusual Investigation
as to tlie facts alleged. Thirty responses
had been received up to and including to
day. A more rapid dispatch of the business Is
possible under tlie Lew regulations, there
being always delay under the old sj stern,
which was due to the routine nccefiry,
and not from any lack of attention. The
work of Uie department has been to that de
gree simplified under the law creating a
new board of excise.
It is understood tli.it the board will begin
Uie consideration of rases wlthinThe toil
ing week. Judge Morell, of the excise
board, wholias been 111 for two weeks or
more, was al the District lluilOing for a
while to-day, but merely for recreation,
lie was unable to takeup his official duties.
MAILS GROWING HEAVIER.

Major Moore, superintendent of police,
has been instructed by the Commissioners
to have all places wiiere steam engines arc

AGAINST FREE SILVER.
Republicans Find Meaning In Illinois
Chicago, Nov. G Much interest was felt
in tbe result of the election for Congress
man in the Eighteenth district because
the question of free silver was presented
squarely 1c the views of tbe opposing can
didates. Chairman Tanner, of the Republican
State committee, when receiving congratu
lations on the election of Hadley, the Re-
publican candidate, said:
"TheTesult Is of national significance., It
means that free silver will not be pressed.
After tbe outcome In tbe Eighteenth It
seems to me tbe Democrats will want to.
get as far as possible away from It." .

Mrs. Emily G. Ramsdell, widow of tlio
late register of wills, was the first witness
on Uie stand this morning In the content
'between Mrs, Linda Webb and Frank Olm'
stead, over the will of the latler's wife.
She testified that she was acquainted
with Mrs. HrtchliiHon and her family. On
one occasion when Mrs. Olmstead visited
tlie w itness she said she was very miserable
on account of the suit which ber husband
had caused her to bring against her mother
On cross-examination she said visits be
tween herself and Mrs. Olmstead ceased
during Uie break in friendly relations
between her and her mother and sister.
Gov. John L. Crosby, or Jiew York, was
the next witness.. He hud known Mrs.
Olmstead for about twelve years. He
knew her father, and had met her at ber
mother's house, al Senator Miller's, and
He met Mrs. Olmstead In the wiUer of
1881-85, near the I'orUand flats. They
shooktiauus, and ne asked her why she did

He said, afraid of what. She answered,
"afraid of Frank."
"That was her husband?" asked Mr.
On crosf-jfamlnatlon by Mr. Davis Gov.
Crosby said he was First Assistant Post
master General at the time ot his meeUng
Mrs. Olmstead. He lived on II street- He
had just come litre imm Montana by re
quest ot President Arthur. He had bten
governor of Montana. He was appointed
He met Mrs. Hutchinson here some time
in 1884, when he was here on a visit. He
was appointed oneot the board of visitors
at West Point that jear. and either going
to "cut Point or returning to Montana
he met Mrs. Hutchinson and her daughters.
He was at dinner at the White Houie, also
at the Metropolitan Club, but, of course did
not meet the ladies at t Ither place.
After considerable rellcction and several
question from Mr. Dails he finally re
membered that he was presented to Mrs.
Olmstead and Mrs. Webb by Gen. Bcalc,
who was an intimate friend of all three.
It was wiille he and Gen. Eeale were walk
ing on tlie street. The ladies were in a
carriage. He met Mrs. Olmstead ofter
at her mother's home in the eily, but ne. er
saw her at Iter own home.
J.EVER MET THE HUSBAND.
He had seen Mr. Olmstead at Senator
Miller's but thought he was never-Introduced.
There was considerable nj-play In a
pleasant wav over social affairs, and the
fact was elicited by Mr. Havls that Mrs.
Olmstead was frequently at her mother's
during the winter of 188 1-85, and her hus
band was never with her.
After a time Mrs. Olmstead was not at
her mother's when he culled Uiere. It was
thlh that led to his question-wljen hd met
Mrs. Olmstead near the Fortlanfl. r
Gov. Crosby could not remember speaking
of Uie matter to anyone but Gen. Rcaie. To
him, as an InUmate rriend, he spoke pt the
matter as an instance of a .wife being in
timidated by her husband i Tin preferred
not to beworuc mixed up in family disputes,
but after he read ot the first trial of this
case he met Col. Tottcn, of counsel, one
day and told him he bad some testimony
of value In the case. He would be willing to
A LITTLE PICTORIAL.
Mrs. Emma Hutchinson Nesblt, a cousin
nf Mrs. Webb, testified as to the relations
between the members ot her aunt's family.
Mr. Olmstead s manner to uts wirepin ordi
nary occasions was very paternal; at other
times be was very dictatorial.
She said his tone's were not loud, but
"full of the desire for dominion. He wanted
to have his own way-"
Mr. Davis objected to "these pictorial
expressions of opinion." He couldn't tell
what the witness nieant.
"Tou never had an liody try anything of
the kind on you?" said Mr. Perry.
"No," replied Mr. Davis; "when any
thing, ot the kind has been tried with me
It lias been loud."
'Ton evidently did not hear Mr. Gorman
talking yesterday," retorted Mr. Perry.
A slight rustle about the court room fol
lowed this sally, and Judge Bradley said,
apparenUy a little annoyed: "Read the last
question and answer."
After hearing these he ruled out the an
swer. Mrs. Nesblt continuing her testi
mony, said Mrs. Olmstead wasswect. gentle
and "submissive, tractable and easily led.
She was ery affectionate to her mother

' Rich Wife's Petition.
Denleis Having Spent Her Money, and

The answer of Mr. Arlington L.iinrdesty
to the bill for divorce filed by his wife,
Mrs. Annie S. Cimmaek Hardesty, on Sep-
temocr Its lasr, was mauepuunciius morn
ing before It was filed in court.
Mr. Hardesty, it Is stated, will charge
that his wire lias been won away from him
by James Osborne, of the Hotel Emrleh.
Mr. and Mrs. Hardesty were married on
October 10, 1890. It was an elopement
and caused much comment. Tim was
mainly because Miss Cammaek's parents,
who were quite, wealthy, ery etrenuouslj
onoosed their daughter's marriage to a
mechanic. Mr. Hardesty is a llneksmlth.
Bjt Mrs. Hardesty was forgUen In

she claims, was spent recklcssl) by her
husband in drinking to excess and in a

Mr. Hardesty, It is stated, will deny
strongly that he has ever tpent any of his
wire's morey foolishly. He lays, en the
contrarj, he 1 as earned money at his trade
whenever he could, and Las, In fsrt, laid

He will tick that He bill ror dhorce be

a legal separation from his wife.
Mr. Osborne, who has the reputation of
being a quiet, mdustrlous man, atlenUve
to his duties at tbe hotel, said whin seen
that there was no truth In the charge that
be has been unduly Intimate with Mrs.
Hardesty. It was denied at Ihe Lotel that
Mrs. Hardesty is stopping there.

It was stated In a morning paper that
the case of Richard J. Head, formerly
quartermaster of Charles P. Stone Post,
G. A. It., had bten ordered bciore the gen
eral court-niartlal by Department Comman
der Anderson. The case was taken up by
Mr. Anderson on an appeal by Mr. BeU,
who cla'med that wten he was court-martialed
by the pest court he was unlalrly
treated, owing to the prejudice of the
members. In the account published this
mcfrning, it is said that Mr Beall is in
debted to the pon and refuses to liquidate
A TImt s reiorter went to the residence
of Mr. Howle'tt, No. 1411 N street north
west, who It 1b claimed by Mr. Beall Is an
enemy of Ms and Is Instrumental in the
prosecution. Mr. Howlett was not at
home, having left early this morning.
The people in lhehousc did not knowwhen
he would return.
Mr. Beall, of No. 941 Rhode Island
avenue northwest, also was out. He was
expected to return about 0 o'clock this
Col. Marlon T. Anderson, the department
commander, was seen at his desk in the
city post-office. When asked concerning
tlie charges, be said that he could not
express an opinion as to their truthful
ness. "Won't you say whetl er they are sub
stantially true or not?"
"I should rather be excused. In my
position as department commander it w ould
certainly be out of place for me to say
anything. The man who gave out the
informal ion Is liable to be severely censured
urposslbly court-martialed If it IsTound out.
It is against all the rules of the organiza
tion for the action of a court to be fore
stalled. I do not know who gave out the
facts, but it was a very unwise thlrg to do.
"Do you know whether there has been
anv ill rwling between Mr. Beall and Mr.
"That I cannot say. All that I know of
it Is merely beresay, and It would not do
for me to repeat gossip."
Upon being asked what he had heard
concerning the two Col. Anderson refused
to state it. He did say. however, that the
dale of the holding of the court-martial
had not yet been fixed, but that he was
sure it would not be next Monday.

Editor Tunes: My attention has been
called to an article in yoar morning paper
of October -30 respecting the decree in my
wife's divorce case, in which an injustice
is done to me. The fait a are as follows:
After fully hearing the cose and counsel
on both sides. Chief Justice Bingham dis
missed my wife's ietltlon asking for a
divorce and my cross bill praying for the
custody of the children. Tlie amount of
costs to be paid by me, the support for
children, and the custody of the children
wcreniatterscotisented to by myself through
my solicitor, as will be seen by the cer
tified decree of tne court hereto attached.
I have always contributed toward the
support of my children, and though the
coart in that proceeding had no Jurisdic
tion to decree as to alimony, sapport ot
children, or custody of children, the pe
titioner having failed to make out a case,
yet I gladly consented to do what was
put in the dei ree, and without which con
sent, the chief justice held, be could not
have granted it. JOnN J. B. LERCH,

Grocer Donnelly's Explanation.
Editor Times: I see by your morning
issue of to-day that protest was filed yes
terday with the excise board against the
Ucuance of retail liquor licenses. Among
tbe jiames mentioned is that ot my own.
I dedre to say for the information of my
patrons and friends that I am not an ap
plicant for a retail liquor license. I am a
legitimate and bona fide grocer, doing
business at the southwest corner of Four
teenth and I streets northwest, and num
ber among ray customers many ot Wash
ington's Best iiedple.
As, therefore, no application for a retail
license was made by me, the alleged pro
test against a thing not applied for seems,
and is, unnecessary.
