they had borne without flinching as well
as on tho vi torics which they had achieved.
He also took occasion to deliver himself of
some pertinent utterances on the question
Temperance made homes out of hovels,
wealth outof poverty, health out of disease.
It made avenues out of alleys. He closed by
saying heartily, "Thrice welcome and god
speed." Mrs. R. R. West, of Brookland Union, de
livered the response. She is a graceful lady
and made the same kind of a speech. She

Uons ot drink.

OPPOSED TO VIVISECTION.
American Ilumano Association In
Finur of lU-Htrlctliuz It.
Minneapolis, Minn, Sept. 2G. At to
day's meeting of the American Humane
Association Dr. Albert Lc-rfingwell, of
Cambridge, Mass., presented the report of n
med leal committee which forsereralmonths
has been engaged in sounding public senti
ment regarding vivisection.
Over two thousand expressions of opinion
were obtained from leading physicians,
teacliers In medical colleges, authors, cler
gymen, college presidents, nnd professors.
Of these only about one-eighth were In
favor of unrestricted experimentation upon
living animals, the large majority being
either for atroIutc prohibition, or for such
restriction by law as should limit vivi
section to painless operations, or to those
having a definite relation to the treat
ment of human ailments.
A preponderance of sentiment appeared
to a statement or opinion which declared
"th-it only a great and definite advantage
to the Interests of humanity can Justiry
vivisection atoll," and which condemned
as cruel and wrong the Infliction of tor
ment upon living animals, simply to Illus
trate well known physiological facts, or
as n method of research Into curious
ph)slologicul phenomena, which have no
conceivable relation to the cure or treat
ment of disease.

Ti JOlH'S TROUBLES
Contesting for the Possession
of a Boarding House.
ONE IS AN INTEfiLOPES
MIks Fnnnlo L. Gait Clnlnm That nor
Money Was Used by MImh Cath
erine FUUburii Tliey Are Camped
Out In Scpuruto Itoomn Awaiting
tile Un'ii Decision.
Two women at the head of hostile camps
in Uie same house, one keeping guard by
candle light, tl.".- other and more aggressive,
silting In tho dark alone in a parlor
almost unfurnished and waiting for the law
to act, mado up a sensation last night that
strongly suggests the creations of Dickens'
Imagination. Thehouselsa lliictliree-story
brick residence, No. 012 Islreet northwest.
Miss Fannie L .Gait sat with two or three
friends in her room on the second Door and
took counsel how she might get possession
of what she claims to have paid for.
Miss, Catherine Flshburn, who claims Gen.
Wade Hampton as her patron, sat In the
spacious and handsome double parlor and
defied Uie world to preventherfrom making
any agreement she chose and asking the
other party to live up to It. Bhc had no
light but that did not disconcert her.
Simply tho gas had not been turned on.
Sheis engaged tobc ma rrledand she wasable
to take care of herself. If not her fiancee
who was a lawyer, she said, would be able
to care for her interest. Meantime Mr.
James Lowndes was her attorney.
LOOKING FOR A WAY.
Miss Gait, on.the other hand, was hopeful
thelnw wound find a way to give her what
she claims to be her rights. She says that
about September 8 bhc answered an adver
tisement by Miss Flshburn for n partner
in a boarding house. MK Flshbjrn, who
is tall and ot fire figure, while Mies Gait
is of medium stature and slcidcr, called
at ber home. Miss Fishburn had letters
of recommendation from Gen. Wade Hamp
ton ami Rev. Dr. Elliott. They soon made
an agreement, under which they were to
lease the I street-honse together.
Miss Gait was to have charge of therooms
and Miss Flshburn to look after the dining
room and kitihen. Miss Fishburn appeared
to lie a person of unusual physical strength
and good executive ability. She had been
an artist, but now was disposed to turn ber
hand to something more profitable.
On September 15, they moved in. Miss
Gait brought with her furniture from
Jhe N street place and four roomers. Miss
Flshburn, so far as Miss Gait has been able
to learn, brought nothing but herself and
her trunk. Mils Gait said last night Miss
PiEhburn bad not paid the thirty cents to
pay the man who moed the trunk and she
believed had not the money to buy a pottage
When the lease for the houBe was made
out the two ladies went to tLc real estate
office together. Miss Fishburn directed the
drawing of the paper, Although she was
asked to have lxuh names iit In as lessees
she used only her own.
When the money was to lie paid. Miss Gait
cays, she drew out a roll of tiills and Miss
Fishburn took them, saying she had been a
clerk at the Treasury and could count them
beat. So she crossed them this way and
that, counted out the amount and paid it
to the clerk.
MISS GALT PAID.
When the time came for meals Miss Flsh
burn was not cxacUy ready for lack of
china, provisions, etc. Finally Miss Gait
went to Unsburgh's with her and they
bought a full outfit. Miss Gait paid dovn
S50, for which she toot a receipt, and they
signed Joint notes at $20 a month to pay
the remainder ot tbe bill.
Then housekeeping began, but Miss Flsh
burn wa not able to satisfy Miss Gult la
keeping np her share of the business and
Miss Gait says did not seem to care to do
her part. They disagreed completely. Then
Miss Gait says her late partner took the
locks orttbehouso soshe could not belocked
out, broke open satchels, went Into trunks,
and so annoyed the roomers that two lett,
took possession ot tho parlor kcjy and would
not allow her a moment's peace.
She was afraid to leave tbe house for fear
Miss Flshburn might further exhibit her
executive ability Jiy getting legal posses
sion of ber goods. She had already got all
her money at command and Iiisucii a way
as to leave almost no redress.
Miss Gait has a faithful colored boy cm
ployed, and declares she does not dare to
leave the house unguarded In her absence,
and does not like to remain there alone
Willi Miss Flshburn on guard In the parlor.
She found her trunks broken open, and
applied for a warrant on Uie ground that
lli.-s Flshburn broke them, but she could
not say she saw the mischief done.
MISS FISHBURN'S COMMAND.
On the other hand. Miss Flshburn had
commanded her to vacate the house, and
had torn up her stair carpet and thrown it
into the yard. She only desisted when
"Jie colored boy threatened to knock her
down If she touched anything more. She
had employed several men to do work
about the place and failed to pay
them. One of them threatened to have her
Miss Flshburn said her protector. Gen.
Hampton, Is out or the city, and Miss
Gait and her friends were trying to take
advantage of her. She had promises of
help from her sfstcEjn, Virginia, wbo tuul
told her to go on making arrangements
for keeping a boarding house and the
sister would give her the necessary backing.
She had employed a man to do some
work, but trad not agreed to pay him till
Saturday. He came back demanding his
money yesterday and was very trouble
some. She could not seewhypersonsshould
not live-up to their contracts.
She said she was from Charleston and
had lived here seventeen years. For a
time she was a clerk In tho Treasury.
She had friends and her word would

expenditures by nearly $4,000,000.
The October figures, however, are ex

$3,000,000, as during that month the

Monitor AJnx Turned Oier to It for
Secretary Herbert yestenlay afternoon
signed the order transferring the monitor
AJax to the State of New Jersey for the
use of the naval militia. The vessel Is
now at League Island navy yard, and she

engines are In order, and she came from
the James River to Norfolk recently under
her own steam- The turret mechanism is
also in working order, nnd the AJax will
be turned over with a good battery
adapted to target practice.
The New Jersey militiamen have mapped
out an ambitious programme for their
ncxt drills, and will take the AJax on a
practical cruise down "the Delaware and
Into the bay. Boats also will be supplied
by the Navy Department.
