DEATH WATCH HAS BEEN SET

Contract .Between the Two Con
Two men are walling at the District
jnil in the shadow of the gallows. Thoy
arc Thomas J. Taylor and Joseph A.
Beam. The death watch has been set.
Unless President Cleveland interferes
they will step upon the same scatfold near
.loon on July 20, and by the same touch
will be launched into eternity together.
In every way, except the time and manner
of the fate that stares them in the face,
they are wholly different.
Beam is big, red-headed, has a fair com
plexion, blue eyes, aud strong, heavy
Tayloris little, dark-haired, with swarthy
complexion, black eyes, small, nervous
mouth, weak chin, narrow brow, and deep
Beam will weigh about 180 pounds and
Is six feet tall. He has Hill, big muscles,
anil is a little slow in his motions. He has
lately fchaved off hlo beard aud has his hair
cut close (showing- a round head with the
curves of his face well rounded in shaip
contrast with the thin angular lines of
Taylor's face. He eats with excelleut
appetite and seems to enjoy in a sensual
way even the gloomy closing days of his
career. He had for breakfast yesterday
t-quab on toast with two soft-boiled eggs
with Hie usual accompaniments aud ate
all with a reliPh.
TA YLOU EATS SPARINGLY.
Taylor will hardly weigh 123 pounds, and
is abuut five feet fix inches in height. He
wears a inut.-uche aud keeps his dark locks
neatly combed. He is in poor health, eate
sparingly and is plainly overwhelmed by the
woes that haw overtaken him. He is de
pressed iu hjurit and does not let himself
dare hope that the President will gram
him a commutation of hissentence.
As the day of his sentence approaches
he has begun to break down and may be
come a complete nhjMcal and mental wreck
berore the hour arrives.
No where is the contract between the two
men more striking than in their treatment
of religious Mihjecls and in their ordinary
conversation. lVani fays he knows more
alwnt the Bible than do the men who would
minister to him spiritually. Mr James Lee
and Mr. Wood, otitic Central Union Mission,
talked with him a litt'e while yesterday
and a passage of icripture was wanted.
Before the mission workers could find it
Beam told them where it was. He appears,
in fact, to be very well read ,not only in the
Bible, but in other books.
He is bold and aggressive in hi? thinking
and docs not hesitate to say what he thinks
of perons and things. He is? taid to have
berated soundly teveral who have called
on him in his tout's uitcrc.'t. He has not
f-elected any one as a spiritual adviser,
llHHgh it is expected he wilt before the end.
BEAM IS UNCIVIL.
To visitors Beam is sometimes civil,
but what he will do is uncertain. Some
times his talk is very profauo and ob
scene It lias not been couMdeied proper
to take lady visitors to. the jail to f-ee him.
He is, however, entirely civil iu his treat
ment of tlie guards and others who have
to do with him.
But Taylor is much interested in spir
itual matters. Father Sullivan, of St.
Pew's, has attended him regularly.
Father Matthews lias spoken to him occa
sionally, while Mr Downey and others
of tin St Vincent do Paul Society have
visited inm. It is reported that, al
though christened m the Episcopal Church,
he is likely to become a communicant in
the Catholic He came out into the cor
ridor yesterday and listened attentively
to tlie cervico huld by the Central Union
Mission band. Taylor is very courteous
alike to visitors and official-'. As one of
the attendants expiessed it yesterday:
"He is a perfect gentleman."
Both men read a good deal, Taylor
rather more Meadily and to a later hour,
parity because lie hus a light in front
of his cell after the cell lights are out
Taylor is now in No 34, in the far end of
corridor, while Beam was placed yes
terday in No 2, the Guiteau cell, at the
end of tlie low next the general meeting
room Beam talks comparatively little
to other prisoners , while Taylor has as a
cell companion Frank Hall, lately com
mitted by Judge Miller for contempt, and
they have a good deal to say to each other
during waking hours.
LENIENT TO TAYLOR
Taylor Is not so strictly under the death
watch beeauf-e of the likelihood that the
President will take action in his favor,
but neither is allowed to see the general
public Their regular visitors are Beam's
wife,whoe daughter he slew, and Taylor's
ousln, Mrs Mary Davis, who brought
him up Mrs. Beam had been sick for
f-onie time, and tias not been to see him
lately Mrs. Davis did not call yester
day, but will probably go to-day She is
not allowed any longer to carry him food
or anything else except some trifling
articles of clothing.
Taylor's mother, broken in health, is
living with her daughter Lucy, wife of
John Hagenbiich , of Loudoun county, Va.
Mrs. Ha'geubuch wrote to Mrs. Davis last
week that their mother has been cheered
aud encouraged somewhat ly the hope of
executive clemency as shown by recent
copies of The Times seut her but her health
is&o broken that death will almost certainly
follow if her sou is executed.
Taylor's little girl, Blanche, five years
old , was playing yesterday af ternoon among
the flowers in the yard at Mrs. Davis'
pretty little home at No. 710 Maryland
avenue. Sue seems entirely unconscious
of the terrible fate that Is impending for her
father. She. prattles of her curls aud
flowers and dolls as innocently and is as
pretty audartlefsas the baby of the happiest
homo in the city.
PRNSIOX CLE UK MISSING.
W. S. Dixon, a Colored Employe,
Dan Mysteriously Disappeared.
William 5. Dixon, colored, for fifteen
years a e'erk in tho Pension Office, is
m'ystenously missing, and his home, at
No. 2302 Sixth street northwest, near
Howard University, where he has lived for
the past three years, is vacatiU
He was last seen a week ago, and after
anxious waiting and fruitless inquiry,
his wife gave up three days ago and
moved, with their four children, to make
a home for the present with her sister,
on Nicholas xi venue, near Armstead's
grocery, at Hillsdale.
Mr Dixon has been foabuot three years
in the division of Chief Romeo L. De
Pay, at $1,200 a year, according to the
Blue Book, although, it is said, his pay was
recently raised to $1,400.
He was well liked in the office and had
been excused for errors that would have
gone hard with less popular men.
He went to the office as usual last Mon

Charged with Assault.

Their Own Unco Which, foraTlnie,
Spectators about tho entrance gates to
the Arsenal grounds witnessed a small riot
shortly after 1 o'clock last evening that
happily failed to develop Into rave propor
tions and that died away with the setting
of the sun and the closing of the iron
As explained by Corporal B. J Smith,
who was on guard at the gate at the tune,
immediately afterthesienmer George Lcary
reached her wharf at 4 o'clock a company of
camo to the Arsenal entrance and started
to go in.
They were talking loudly and giving
copious exhalations of profanity, the guards
on duty said, and seeing their condition,
Sentry Lester refused them admission.
The company that numbered about a half
dozen in the beginning multiplied itself
into a large number in a twinkling.
RUSHED BY THE SENTRY.
After parlying a short time with the
sentry the pioneers on the scene rushed by
him and rati to Corporal Smith.
"In making their rush for me," said tho
corporal, "the drunken lenders pushed two
ladies off the walk into the gutter. That
was enough to convince me that they had
no business to be in the grounds and r
ordered them out and told tho soldiers
to shut the gates and admit no more colored
people during the ovening.
"Now I do n.t do u oi but that there were
colored )".: s eking admittance who
had every right to come in. Our orders-arc
only to exclude drunken and disorderly peoj
pie. But we were unable to discriminate
between them, for those that were appar
ently not drunk seemed to join in the
noise and abuse with tin" others, and when
we did let some of them in they iiisisttd
on the whole cm wd following, so we wer-e
consequently compelled to shut all ouK"
After the gates had been closed upon the
crowd several of the men are .said to have
shown a dipsosition to don the war pig
ments. "Lookee here, is yo' on yo'r metal?"
queried one of the debarred of hw neighbor.
Tho latter gave his rear pockets a sig
nificant caress, and replied
"No. sah; I ain't got my steel, but cf I
had I'd slash that cawporcl's wind tube."
DARED THEM TO COME ON.
Others are said to have biisied themselves
issuing invitations to Uncle Sam's defend
ers to step outside, while one of the alleged
rioters is said to have repaired to a neighbor
ing stono pile and began selecting a choice
assortment of brick-bits.
The men finally decided that It was futile
to remain longer, however, and giadually
dispersed witiiour a stone being thrown
or a bullet being fired.
Corp. Smith reported to Lieut. J. 0.
Gilmore, the officer of the day, the facts
substantially as stated above. Lieut. Gil
more will make a report of the matter to
Col. CIos-ou, tho commanding officer, at
guard mount at 9 o'clock this morning.
The matter will doubtless go no further.
"I thinkCorp. Smith wasentlrelv justified
in doing as lie did," said Lieut. Gilmore.
"It was apparently a crowd of drunken
excursionists that started the matter and
others took a hand in it until tlie guards
were compelled to exclude all. Of course
there is no distinction made here between
between white and colored people and the
excursion was only for the moment.
"There were plenty of coloied peo

CAUGHT ONE OF THE TRIO.
W. G. Gibson Identified by TIenry
Willinins as His AsMiilunt.
William Y. Gibon, thirty years of age,
and an ex-employe in the District govern
ment was yesterday morning locked up
in the Second precinct station by Policeman
Hutton charged with being one of the men
who assaulted Henry Williams, an old
push-cart ownor ten days ago.
Tlie story of the assault as told by
William Dorscy, a special officer on Thir
teenth street near P northwest, and Mr
It. II. Wood, a resideut in the neighborhood,
is as follows:
Williams, who is an old and inoffensive
colored proprietor of a" push cart, was
shovlngr it around Iowa Circle on Friday
July 11, looking for a possible customer,
when three men in a carriage drove down P
street and stopped near him With an
oath the men sprang from the vehicle, and
with the butt of a whip aud their fists,
proceeded to beat the old fellow into in
sensibility. Special Officer Dorsey ran
out of the park to aid the colored man,
but the cowardly trio jumped into the
carriage and drove off.
Williams was taken to Frccdmen's Hos
pital in a precarious condition, where he
remained up to last night; when he was
removed to his home, No. 310 Q street
The police were given a description
of the men, and have been working on
the case since.
Hutton a few days ago ascertained that
Gibson, who resides at No. 1434 Rhode
Island avenue northwest, answered to the
description of the man who first struck
Williams and yesterday morning arrested
Williams was brought to the station
later in the day and identified Gibson as
one of his assailants, and the first charge
of suspicion was changed to assault and
battery, and Gibson had to give $100
bonds to appear in police cdurftbis morn
ingbefore he was released.
The dependent is said tb be connected
with several prominent families in. the
city, and once held a position as chief
telephone operator in the Commissioners
office. Williams claims that he was as3
sAuIted by GiBson because he testified in a
court- some time ago. against Gibson's
wishes; More he would not say.

Devising Means to Counteract
the Growth of Public Evils,
ASSERTION OF ENDEATOEERS
InU'reMliij Services. Held at Oiinton
Teniplo ifemorlul Church "Good
Cltizeiusliip" DiMitis-sed by Leadline
Christian and Anti-Saloon Leairuo
AVorhorn Influence of "Women.
Interesting services were held last even
ing, under the auspices of the Christian
Endeavorers, at Gtinton Temple Memorial
Presbyterian Church, on the corner of
Fourteenth and It streets northwebt.
The subject was "Good Citizenship," and
it was discussed. by Mr. II. C. Metcalf,
secretary of the District Christian En
deavor Unions Mrs. H. A. Gdlenwater,
secretary of tin Anti-Saloon League, Judge
Anion S. Taylor and Itev. George 11. Patch,
pastor of the church.
Some of the causes which rcuderxl it
necessary foripeoplc to assemble in behalf
f good citizenship were- cited by .Mr.
Metcalf. He Eiiid that corrupt citizenship
has caused the people to awaken to the
necessity of devising means to counteract it.
"There have bewi thefts and misappropri
ation of public funds," he said, "public
office has become a means of political re
ward, aud immor.il men have been elected
to office by reason of their ability to
distribute leaser offices.
SUCCESS Oi-" ORGANIZATION
"When these evils have been pointed
out those who talked against them have
been called calamity howlers. Organi
zation, notably m New York, Philadelphia,
and other large centers, has however,
done much for the purification of the po
litical conditions, and much more is des
tined to be accomplished by the two
million Christian Endeavorers through
out the couutry "
The saloon, he thought, is the greatest
of all evils
Mrs Gillenwa'er spoke of the influence
woman cau have in the cause of good cit
izenship She made au eloquent appeal for
the co-opei.ttiouof the wives, mothers, aud
daughters against the saloon
Referring to a remark made last March
by Prof James in the midst of a lecture,
to the effect that the men should elect
their best lepresentatlves to oflice as a
means of reforming affairs, Mrs Gillen
water said she would like to answer Prof
James by showing him that instead of
electing good men. there have been sent to
Congress men who teared not God, and
who violate every one of the Ten Com
mandments every day in tlie week.
Mrs. Giilinwater presented a plea for
the influence of woman as an aid to the
Commissioners and the members of the ex
cise board, who are good men, she said,
and are daily overwhelmed and worried
by the numberless perplexities with which
they have to deal.
CONVENTION'S LEADING THOUGHT.
Judge Taylor expressed the be
lief that the leading thought of
which the recent lioston convention lert
an impress was for education, patriotism
and one country.
No one can attend such a convention,
he added, without Jeeling this great in
fluence. Great good would result, not by
taking polities into religion, but by taking
religion into politics.
Tne concluding remarks were by Dr.
George B. Patch, who icferred to the fear
that had been expressed, that the Christian
Endeavor Society would eventually be
switched otf uvou political l5aes, but this
fear, he believed, is now dispelled.
It is entirely a non-partisan movement,
aud In his opinion will labor successfully
for Sabbath observance, to promote tem
perance and the. purity and freedom of the
ballot, for placiup; the best men in office,
and against gambling and the social evil.
To these topics he thought there would
be much greater attention paid in future
by the pulpits of the laud, and he predicted
a great reformation
The exercises were closed with prayer
and the benediction by Dr. Patch.

A most serious obstacle in the way of really
good racing at the across -the-river
tracks la tho lack of competent jockeys.
The boys who are really good riders can
bo summed up on the fingers of one hand.
Within two months nearly all of the
first class bois have disappeared.. The ac
tion of the Jockey Club, which owes
some of the boys a chance to get Into the

boys away. He was a very strong fin

Among the boys who are now riding at
St. Aihph and the Island Murphy is easily
the best rider. Ho has a good head and

The English are chuckling at the -way Mr.
Michnel F. Dwyer is losing all his horses'iii

that Mr. Dwyer is anxious to get rid of

form it would appear Hint either of the two-year-olds
hold Miss Bowser and Sir Will
iam safe, and the only colt that has a
chance to beat them when thoy are ready
is Septour. Jon Mack certainly ought
to give Tancred, Finnwater, Itosita and
other fleet ones of his age a good deal
of trouble outpointing him. HN distance
is six aud a quarter and six and a half
furlongs The advent of these horses will
certainly improve the clas of racing in
Tlie cord presented at the St. Asaph
track to-daj gives promise of some good
sport. The fields aro not large, but if
they are not spoiled by scratching, should
furnish first-class fluishes.
There are eight carded for the opening
race, aud Hazel and Lento appear to be
the best of tho lot. They should finish iu
this order, with Georgo Hakes as the
runner up. The next event looks to be
an easy thing for Pie. There are several,
however, who have a look-in, and Biscoe,
Eva's Kid, and Eouda may any one de
feat hi m.
Fagiu will capture the third event in a
gallop. Miss Bowser will of course be
played to beat him, but she will have a
merry time doing it. Minnie S should be
third. White Cockade looks very tempting
in the seven-furlongs race, but it is doubt
ful if he can beat Belisarius. Miss Carter
has been inproving right along and may run
into third money.
It is not likely that Con Lucy was a
lobster on Saturday for nothing, and he
should capture the fifth race. Manola and
Mrs. Stewart stand a good chance of
being second and third. The closing race
is made up of dogs, and Duke of Gloucester
and Van Dyke appear to have the cinch,
with Irish Pat knocking at the gate.

MAY'S BODY NOT RECOVERED
Police Are Uncertain Whether He
Drowned Himself as Keported.
Genati, Who Said Ho Was with May.
tit tho Time, Now Attempts to
Deny Homing; Told tho Story.
The police have not yet been able to clear
up the reported suicide of F. P May, aa
they have so far been able to investigate
the case but slightly. No attempt has
been made to recover the body in the river
where Joseph J. Genau, the man, who ac
cording to his own story, was with May
when he sprang from the Long Bridge,
snid it went down, and as yet no man by
the name of F. P. May has been reported
The most peculiar phase of the case de
veloped yesterday in a denial by Genau of
any knowledge of the thing, which was
written to The Times. The story, as pub
lished, was told by him to a reporter in
Tlie Times office on Saturday night, and
he insisted that it was correct in. every de
tail. Yesterday, however, he stated to an
acquaintance that the story was untrue,
aud then wrote a letter to The Times,
denying the story and trying to make it
appear that some one else had visited
the office and impersonated him.
A Times reporter called yesterday even
ing at the address, No. 451 Washington
street, that he had been given when telling
the storj'f and saw the elder Genau, who
stated that his son had not been at home
since Saturday evening at about 5 o'clock.
He could not, of course, say whether the
story was or was not correct.
Later in the evening, after communicating
the additional facts to the police, the
reporter visited Washington street and
caught Genau just as he was going home.
He recognized the reporter, although he
denied giving him the story. Even then
when asked about it he said that he knew
nothlng of the facts, and had never been
in The Times office. He denied any knowl
edge of May and said that he not been at
Jackson City for a long time.
Fiually Genau admitted that he wasdrunk
Saturday night and might have called
at The Times office aud told the story,
although he declared that he remembered
nothing of tlie circumstance. At any rate,
he said, the story was untrue.
The police will-make a thorough investi
gation of the matter this morning, and is
will be ascertained whether or not the
story told by Genau was the result of a
f aucy rendered false by drink, or whether
there is really a man drowned in the
Potomac. If it Is- true, the case will be
thoroughly probed and It will be ascertained
whether May committed suicide or was
foully dealt with.

Suspicion of the attending nurses were
aroused, and- finally a druggist told a
friend of Black that Ware had purchased
belladonna from him. The body was ex
humed, and it was shown that both croton
oil and belladonna had been used.
Mrs. Black alleges that Ware admin
istered the poison during the absence of
the attending physician, aud at times with
the medicine the physician prescribed.
Ware is twenty-five years old.
