The most significant event of the meet
ing was the reading of a letter from Aaron

that it was well known that there bad been
in the District for some time tho agents

along the avenue on Sundays
After their usual evening tour among
the alums the wagon vas driven up in
front of Ihe Times office, and the ladies
anil gentlemen In the wagon, led by Mr.
George "W. "Wheeler, sang several appro

The presence of the wagon attracted a
number of passers-by, and quite a service
of song was held, although It lasted but
a few minutes
The wagon was then driven to the Mis
sion headquarters on Louisiana avenue,
where mission services were held
"Wo are giving this little serenade,"
said Mr "Wheeler, "to show our admiration
for Tho Times and gratitude for the good
work it is doing. It adopts the right side
in overj thing, and vc feel that we, as well
as every other class, have a stanch, true
fnond in tho paper. "We desire to make
public our appreciation of its efforts, and
ve thought that this little serenade would
be the best way to do it.
"Wo are just getting ready a branch mis

Tlnrteen-and a-half streets, which will be
called 'The Open Door,' and which is de
signed to shelter homeless girls and those

Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars

The tender wasmadeby Unrepresentative

invested largely in suburban real estate,
aud j snow engaged, as a part of itsscheme,

known as Congress Heights.
The proposition was made in good faith
to Mr. John E. Herrell, president of the
Natioual Capital Bank, the proffer being
accompanied by the assurance that, if
accepted, the money would be forthcoming
within ten nunuus.
It is known that later in thcJay Mr.
Herrell had a conference with President

gave out any information, it is understood
that the proposition was communicated to
Mr. Griswold to ascertain whether or not
he could entertain it.

The caso against the Ecklngton and
Soldiers' Home U ml way Company, charged
with occupying public space for private
purposes in maintaining trolley poles along
New York avenue within the city limits,
came up before Judge Miller in the police
court jesterday, and the motion to quash
the information was argued by Prosecut
ing Attorney James L. Pugh and Mr. John
Ritlout, the company's attorney.
Mr. W. Kcsley Schoepf, the vice presi
dent and general manager of the company,
who, with Mr. Hamilton K. Gray, was
charged in tho information with main
taining the nuisance, wan in court. Mr
Grny was ill and unable to appear.
Mr. Pugh explained to the court Uiat
the company was charged with obstruct
ing the avenue in question under the law
of 18G2. He said that he understood the
attornej for the company, Mr. Ridout,
intended to file a motion to quash, but he
had not seen the document.
Thereupon Mr. Ridout read his motion
to quash, setting forth that the informa
tion did not stale any facts which could
consUtute a violation of the law s in force
in the District of Columbia. He also
said -the facts constituting the offense
for which the company was then being
tried v ere outside the JurisdicUou of the
SAID IT WAS DEFECTIVE.
ne further stated that the information
was defective inasmuch as it alleged that
ou a certain tlay the defendant did occupy
public space for private purposes y erecting
trolley poles and stringing wires thereon,
whereas the wires referred to were strung
many years ago.
Mr. RJdout stated in his argument that
the trolley poles and wires were permanent
fixtures, allowed by law in accordance
with charters to the company, and were not
in any Fense obstrucUons within the mean
ing of the law. He read a number of au
thorities to maintain his stand and called at
tention to the abnormal character of the
ordinance of 1862,underwhichtheprosecu
tious were being made. It himply stated,
he said, without any UmltaUon, that no
public street or avenue should be occupied
tha t Uie charter of Uie compauy repealed Uie
ordluance so far as they were concerned.
Mr. Pugh began his argument by stating
to the court that there seemed to be but two
questions upon which it wa& necessary for
him to dw ell. The first one waa the reason
ableness and validity of the ordinance, and
tho second waa how it waa affected by Uie
charter rights of Uie corajjaoy. He then
read from section 222 of the Revised
Statutes. D. C , showing that it was
almost verbatim with the District ordi
nance, aud referred to the case of the
District vs. Monroe, of a similar nature,
in which the defendant was held.
In his opinion in that case, which Mr
Pugh read, Justice Cox held that any ob
struction intended to remain permanently
upon a street or avenue, was in the nature
of occupancy inhibited by an act of Congress
and by the ordinance ot 1SG2, and could
be removed by the municipal authonUes
In referring to a decision of Judge Kim
ball in the cases against the linemen who
were charged also wiUi occupying public
space for private purposes. Mr Pugh made
use of the term "lower court "
HE MEANS "WHAT HE SAID
"By lower court jou mean the court held
in lower rooms, don't you?" inquired
"No .sir," replied Mr Pugh, vehemently.
"I mean lower court in the fullest sense
of the term

Uiat the thermometer was alwut played

Mr Ridout then suggested that Mr. Pugh
file a new information, changing Uie de
fects referred to, and that the motion to

Judge Miller overruled the moUou of the
company, and conUnued the case until this
afternoon at 1 30 , when Uie argument will
