several thousand people to go out into

The mercury dropped to 42 degrees in

wind blew and the rain continued. The
rain, by the way, was also not the genu

The sudden change was due to the ar
rival of the center or the cold wave which
has been moving East in a zigzag, happy-go-lucky

Notwithstanding its irregular aspect, it

W. L. Grows, III Wife and Another
Woman In u .Street Fight.
A breezy scene was enacted on Thirty
second street, Georgetown, a few minutes
before 12 o'clock Saturday night, when
William L. Groves, his wife, Fannlo L.
Groves, and her mother, Mrs. Nelson, had
a triangular rist right on the sidewalk in
rront or Joseph Stall's saloon.
A man with determination and despera
tion on his countenance and in every
movement had previously crossed High
street and entered the side entrance or the
saloon. In a few mluules three persons
came forth, the man, a small woman aud
an i Iilerly female.
A few words passed between the trio,
when in an instant all became tangled
up in a free ror-all fight. Of course the
affair attracted a large portion of George
town's imputation, among whom, however,
vvas Policeman Seymour.
The next act before tne crowd was a pro
cession to No. 7 police station. There
the man gave his name as William L.
Groves, thirty-four years or age, and his
occupation huckster. The jounger woman
gave her name as Fannie L. Groves, wire
of the rormer, and her age as twenty-four.
The elderly woman, it was shown, had not
mixed Into tho fight with the zeal the
others had, and therefore she was not re
quired to give her name and was not de
tained. Groves and his wlfo would probably
have bad to remain In the station all

It is nut unlikely that they will address to

Berlin, Sept. 29. The prolonged stay In
Berlin of M. de Witte, the Russian minister
or finance, simultaneously with the visit
to the German capital or an agent of the
Bank or St. Petersburg, bas given the ap
pearance or truth to reports that Russia
is endeavoring to induce Germany to par
ticipate lu politico-financial projects in
M. de Witte, however, has positively
denied that his visit has anything to do
with finance, but there are many who
still believe that this assertion is merely
a diplomatic figure of speech.. To one
Interviewer M. de Witte said he had
been spending a short season In Switzer
land for the benefit of his health, and was
on bis way home with nis family.
His stay In Berlin was merely in grat
ification of his desire to consult eminent
German physicians. He had, be- said.no
intention of seeing any politicians or
financiers while here.
The fact that he bad accorded interviews
with several bankers since his arrival
here, he explained was due to bis interest
in the formation of a large electrical com
pany in Berlin, in which be hoped that the
Disconto Gesellschaft and other German
bankers would become Interested.
M. De Witte taid he had told the bankers
wilh whom he had had Interviews that it

with Itusso-Chinese finances were required

bankers exclusively and not thiough Ger
NOT A SAFE FINANCIER.
The Cologne Gazette, apropos ot the re
ports that several Berlin bankers had been

financial projects in which Mr Be Witte.
Is concerned," and, pursuing the subject,
reminds them that since tie had obtained
control of the finances of Iruisja the debt
of that empire had been increased by three
aud a Lalf milliards of francs.
"If Russia hcrsclt or any Russian enter
prise Tvants any more money," says tha
Gazette, "let the French ierd it to them "
Last Friday's newspapers circulated the
story that M. De Witte had bioken off ne
gotiations in connection with his project
tor the formation of an electrical company
and had suddenly left Berlin. - This story
bas been exploded, however, as M. Da
Witte is still here.
A sensational trial, which has attracted

scandalized by the supposed immoral re

they were seen together in public.

Even beiore the court, when absolute
evidence ot the man's Identity as Tc.mba,
had been produced, the, countess stoutly
declared upon the witness stand that sha
had not recognized the count as the former
tutor, Tomba, but had hone-tly believed

she still believed.
Tomba was sentenced to six weeks in
prison .for firing his revolver and an ad

was arrested at the conclusion or the trial
and is now in jail awaiting trial upon tho
