THE DEWEY PH06RAHIH
Arrangements for the Admiral's
Reception Nearly Complete.
The Reception Committee Now Ar-
rmigriiiic Minor IJetnllh An Outline
of Hie Tivo I)as Celebration.
lMnns for Decoration lleins Con
Hidered by Tlione Alow; the llontefi.
The plans for Admiral Dewey's reception
in Washington are completed, save for a
few minor details which Chairman Moses
and his corps of assistants are hard at
work on. A Tew names are to be added to
committees, the platoons of the parade
may be slightly changed, and the decora
tions are yet to be added to the big re
viewing stand at Fifteenth Street and
Pennsylvania Avenue. The stand at the
east front of the Capitol is also to be dec
orated, but as a whole the plans may be
said to be completed.
The committee on public comfort has ar
ranged to care for all the visitors, and bu
reaus of information will'be established at
all the railroad depots. Messengers will
direct visitors to the places they have se
lected, or will assist them in finding quar
ters in some of the numerous hotels and
boarding-houses of the city.
The stores celling bunting, flags, lan
terns, and other articles of decoration and
illumination are already busy supplying
tbe demand for such things as will turn
the Capital into a mass of glowing colois
by day and night, and merchants along the
line of parade are figuring on how their
big buildings may be transformed from
bare brick and stone walls into a sea of
bunting and flags.
The decorations and illumintlons will ex
tend to every quarter of the city, and par
ticularly along all the street car lines.
Chairman Kern, of the commitee on in
dividual decorations, today sent out circu
lars to over 300 persons, requesting that
they see that the houses In their blocks
be decorated and illuminated. He also sent
out several thousand circulars with the
prices of flags, bunting, .fancy lamps, and
colored fire, showing how at a very small
expense any private residence may be
handsomely decorated and illuminated.
The special train which will bring the
Admiral to the Capital will leave here
for New York at 7:50 a. m. one week
from today, bearing on it about fifty of
the most prominent citizens of Washing
ton and representatives from all the de
Dartments of the Capital City and distin
guished army and navy officers.
The train will leave New York at 1:50 p.
m. Monday, October 2, and making a few
short stops at the large cities en route, will
reach Washington at 6:50 p. m. at the
Pennsylvania depot. Sixth Street and
Pennsylvania Avenue, where a troop of
the Third Cavalry as a guard of honor
will be waiting, and at 7 p. m., the Admi
ral, escorted by the cavalry, will start for
the White House, where the President and
the Cabinet will be waiting to receive him.
The parade of from 10,000 to 12,000 men,
comprising all the civic societies of Wash
ington, will be forming at the Peace Mon
ument, while the reception at the White
House Is in progress. About 8 o'clock the
Admiral, the President, and Cabinet will
prepare to start from the White House for
the reviewing stand at Fifteenth Street
and Pennsylvania Avenue, and then will
begin the reception.
At a given signal the head of the parade
will move and as it gets under way 200
men along Pennsylvania Avenue will be
gin burning colored lights of red, white,
and blue and the buildings will be Illumi
nated by private citizens. Eight large
searchlights will turn their bright lights
along the Avenue, and a mass of colored
fire will illuminate the west front of the
Capitol.
About S:30 o'clock the head of the parade
will reach the reviewing stand and by that
time Pennsylvania Avenue will be ab'aze.
Tbe parade will- last about two hours,
Pennsylvania Avenue being kept Illumi
nated during the entire time and by 10:30
the Admiral will be escorted to the resi
dence of Mrs. McLean. Seventeenth and K
Our Offerings Never Fail to Strike the
Responsive, Chord of the Thrifty.
It's our capability to undersell, the reliableness of what we sell and the terms we sell it at that attracts the greater portion
of biryers to our stores. If you could only give thorough inspection to the inner construction before purchasing the furniture
some dealers sell arid reveal the freakish nature of its making, then for comparison do likewise with our own make of furniture, it
would prove to you a lesson of profit to deal here always. An expert inspector constantly keeps watch over the makers, and not a
piece of furniture crosses the threshold of this establishment unless it bears his O. K. mark, which means that it is guaranteed
never to fall short of its expectations. You never heard of a dissatisfied customer leaving this store. We take every precaution
to do more for our customers than any one else. Every offer displayed in these columns is remarkable, and you'll biry more prof
itably this week than ever before.

TO "STAY AN 'EXECUTION'.
John T. Fowler'tt Petition AenlnKt a
, JuHtlce of the Pence.
John T. Fowler today, through his at
torneys, Linpomb & Walker, filed a pe
tition for certiorari against Justice of the
Peace Charles S. Bundy In the suit brought
by H. J. Henz &. Co. against the petitioner
for debt.
Fowler sets forth In his petition that on
September 14 last the plaintiffs filed suit
against him before Oliver P. Johnson, a
justice of the peace, having his office in
Georgetown, and also claiming to have a
branch office on East Capitol Street; that
he, upon being summoned to appear In
Georgetown, asked for a change of' venue,
which he claims should have caused the
case to be referred to Justice of the Peace
A. S. Taylor, but that Justice Johnson un
lawfully transferred the cause to Justice
Bundy for hearing. The latter, without
notice to the petitioner, it is alleged, in
vestigated the matter, and entered Judg
ment against Fowler, and this morning is
sued an execution.
Fowler now asks that the execution is
sued by Justice of the Peace Bundy be
declared void and to have all the papers
in the case certified to the Supreme Court
of the District The amount involved is
$35.65.

THE POSTOFFICE LIBKARY.
An Effort to DelnOe to Enlarge mid
Improve It.
"Now that the Postoffice Department In
a few days will be under the same roof
with the City Postfflce," remarked Fo t
master Merritt to a Times reporter today,
"perhaps arrangements can be made
whereby the letter carriers and other em
ployes of the City Postoffice may have ac
cess to the library of the department,
which, by the way, I understand is not
overstocked. I was somewhat surprised to
learn the other day," continued Postmas
ter Merritt, "that nearly all the boks in
the Postoffice Library were volumes that
had found their way Into the Dead Letter
Office, and also that large numbers of !
them. Including current magazines, were
contributed or donated by the clerks In
the department. 1 am sure that if the
employes of the City Postoffice are per
mitted to obtain books from the depart
ment library they will be as liberal in
the matter of contributing books and
magazines as the clerks of the department.
"As yet I have said nothing on this sub
ject to the Postmaster General, but after
he is settled in his new quarters I shall at
the first opportunity present the question
to him."
Assistant Postmaster Davis says the
employes of the Postoffice would certainly
appreciate the use of the department li
brary. He is of the opinion that if the
matter were properly presented to Con
gress an appropriation could be obtained
with which to purchase standard works.
The reason the employes of the City Post
office have never had a library, he says, is
because the question has never been agi
tated by the local press.
There are several thousand volumes In
the Postoffice Department library, and,
with few exceptions, all have been obtain
ed from the Dead Letter Office. Congress
has never appropriated a dollar for the
purpose of buying the works of well
known authors for this library, but it is
understood that this year an effort will
be made to have the library in keeping
with the dignity of the Postoffice building.
The catalogue of the books of the library
is typewritten.
PETITIONS AGAINST H.OBEBTS.
A Revival of Opposition to the Rep.
rcNeiitntive-EIcct Expected.
An official of the House of Representa
tives, speaking of the thousands of peti
tions filed during the last session of Con
gress against the seating of Representative
elect Roberts, ot Utah, said to a Times re
porter this morning: "I do not kno,v
whether the sentiment against Mr. Robert3
is as strong nowc as it was last winter,
but I do know that if the petitioners de
sire the coming Congress to consider their
prayers'they must have them reintroduced.
The petitions sent to 'our Cngiess and not
acted on die with, adjournment. I expsct,
however, that those- who protested against
the seating of Mr; Roberts will flood Con
gress at the very '-beginning of the session
with duplicates of their petitions. Of
course, Mr. Roberts -will be sworn in the
same as any other member-elest, his cer
tificate of election being regular and hav
ing been accepted by the Clerk ot the
House. The newi petitions, if any are in
troduced, will be referred to the Commit
tee on Elections -when that committee Is
appointed. What) action the committee
will take no one can tell.
"Should the outcry against Mr. Robert3
be as pronounced in December as it was
last winter, when the petitions came In by
the thousands, it will no doubt make the
members, of the Committee on Elections
very uncomfortable, for the army of peti
tioners scattered over the country will ex
pect recognition."
Award of an Army Contract.
Awards were made today for suplpying
the army with 400,000 yards of khaki and
100,000 yards of khaki serge. Proposals for
these supplies were opened in New York
several weeks ago, it being the intention
to purchase all khaki. The latter is equal
to the English khaki and Is twenty-eight
inches wide. The contract went to Urosss
neck, Brossels & Co., ot New York, at
19 9-10 cents per yard. The khaki serge is
an extra fine quality made of sea Island
cotton, and will be used for the first time
In the army. It Is made thlrty-slx inches
wide, and the contract went to the Brigh
ton Mills of New York at 39 cents per
yard.
Credit is as free here as bar
gains. The first makes the lat

June 30, 1901. Principal among these is the
statement of the need of a new poMce station,
to be erected in Tcnlcytown. The report states
that at present the nearest police station is in
Georgetown, and all perons arrested for viola
tions of the law are transported from Tcnlcytown
to the city station, which is some dUtance. and
often results in great inconvenience, not only to
the police, but to the people residing in the vi
cinity. On account of the inconvenience the rw
licc arc thus subjected to, there arc many cases
of disorder where no arrest are made. The
matter has long been discu.d by the citlxens
of the Northwest AjMxiatlon. and they haTe scl
eral times made the recommendation that is con
tained in their report this year. They a$fc that
an appropriation of $15,000 bo nude to erect a
suitable station. The association alo recommends
that an appropriation of $250.00) for the comple
