Curtain Rises Tomorrow on
What Will Probably Be
MOST OF ACTORS
ARE IN CITY TODAY
House to Start Off With Verbal
Outburst From Congressman
Littleton in Steel Case.
By THEODORE TILLER.
A great play of national 'politics
will bo staged on Capitol Hill tomor
row noon. At that hour the gavel
will fall In the Senate and House,
bringing to order the first regular
Bession of the Sixty-second Congress.
With their lines carefully re
hearsed, the vactors are reaching
Washington today by scores. Still
others have been dropping in during
,'the last week. Everybody 1b glad to
get back with the exception of the
official stenographers, who realize
that there is to be more talking done
at this session than perhaps at any
The talkfest will extend far into
the summer with everybody playing
.politics. As a prologue tomorrow,
Congressman Martin Littleton will
tart off the session in the House
with a dazzling bit of oratorical fire
works. To Attack W. J. Bryan.
Mr. Littleton will attack William Jen
rilngs Bryan and others who have criti
cised him because of hla contention that
theQtanley steel Committee should1 stop
Its hearings because of the Government
eult against the trust.
This will put the House In thj proper
Btato of excitement, and from the rise
of the curtain verbal duels will be as
frequent as the ensembles In a comic
The Senate will begin work tomorrow
In Its usual calm and dlgnlfled manner.
So It will proceed until Senator La Fol
letto and a few othor Insurgents take
out their rapiers and hurl themselves at
the standpat statesmen.
There Is serious work ahead for the
eislon, but that does not mean that
these national players will forget the
the main theme politics. A President
(ind another Congress is. to be elected
before December rolls, around again.
And the Democratic donkey and the
Republican elephant will display their
quadrennial hatred for one another.
CongresAman Mann, who is the stage
manager on the Republican side avers
that the drama of politics may lam
until next October. Ho declares that
the Democrats have no definite Ideas
.in view and they will be prbmpted en
tirely by a desire to convince the
credulous public that that poity would
'Accomplish great things were It not for
Congressman Underwood, who will
take the leading rolo on the Democratic
side, says that the session fs going to.
be crowded with constructive legisla
tion and that If a good show Is not put
on up at the hall It will bo because of
Republican obstructionists, or supes,
Who get In tho way of the real actors.
The President's message will reach
both houses Tuesday. On Wednesday
the House will begin to talk tariff,
investigations, Sherman anti-trust law,
and other problems, and the Senate
meanwhile will talk learnedly of arbi
tration and the trust evil.
An Air of Activity About.
The of.1i.ml atenogiaphora am a dis
consolate lot today. They begin to
morrow the editing of that sterling
publication, the Congip.jlonnl Record,
which will be falter an3 bulkier this
session than In many a year.
All tho hold lobbies are crowded To
day with returning statesmen, and
there's an air of' nctlwiy alout tl-i
Capitol. It is estimated that foir-flfths
of the membership of both 'bodies will
bo on hand when the gavel falls nt noon
FIvo now members, fining vacancies,
arc to be sworn In by Spaiker Clark.
The House will begin work with but one
aancy to be filled th'it cause 1 ty the
death of Congressman K. H. Madison
of Kansas. His se.'it will be tilled at an
election to be held December 1.'.

Newsboy Says He Saw Man
Posing as Clerk in To-
AT TIME OF CRIME
William McKay's Story Backed by
Long Chain of Verified
.Pursuit of the murderer of William
H. Mickle is keen th.Is afternoon
along a' now trail,
A new witness affirms that he Baw,
talked with, and transacted business
with a man acting aa clerk in tho
;fllckle store on Seventh street tho
night of the murder.
This new witness know Mr. Mickle
well, had business dealings with him,
and Is vouched for by responsible
persons. His statements aro con
firmed by others as to tho fact that
he was In the Mickle store on that
Thursday night, and as to the hour,
William McKay, a sixteen year old
newsboy, om ployed by the Capitol
News Company, told The Times to
day that ho was in the Mlcklo store
about 6:15 o'clock on the night that
Mr. Mickle was murdered. He went
there to collect an account of 30
cents. He .aays a man other than Mr.
Mickle wub behind the counter.
Boy Tells Story.
"I asked him where Mr Mlcklo was,'
saldtae'jboy, "and he told me he wa
taking his' place. He all'ho had Just
-tokworlr.-thereV that dayjjWjUfr
I "was In the store ha sold a cigar to
a man who came In. This 'man: w.6r
a black mustache. He paid me 30
cents out of a tin box, bo. .took froni
a cupboard on tho right-hand side of
the store. I gave him the pink re
ceipt I had and asked him for 're
turns.' He seemed In a hurry to got
rid of me and told mo not to mind
the 'returns' I could get them tho
next time I came. '
"Then I ran out to tho automobile
that was waiting for me and, ran back
into tile store for a couple of me'ehoa.
The man was In the back room. He
was cross when he saw mo and asked
what I came back for. Then he took
a box of safety matches from his
pocket and gave It to me.
"He wore a cowboy hat and dark
clothing. He had on a black necktie.
He needed a shave. Ho was a llttlo
bit larger than Mr. Mickle and about
thirty years old. I am sure I would
know him If I saw him again."
Doesn't Recognize Smith.
Young McKay, who'ls known among
his fellow-newsboys as "Cheesy," went
with a Times reporter to the District
jail in an effort to identify James Smith
as the man he hod seen in tho Mickle
store. He was shown four prisoners
seated on a bench, one of whom was
Smith. He said he did not recognize
any of them as the man he had seen
In the Mickle store. He pointed to a
man somewhat larger than Smith, wear
ing a sombrero hat, who was seated
next to Smith, saying ho looked some
thing like the man ho had seen.
The fact that young McKay Is so posi
tive in his statements, and that others
Indorse them, coupled with his failure
to ldenjf.fy Smith, opens up a broad
clue that another man was probably In
tho store at the hour when Mr. Mickle
was killed. This would coincide well
with the testimony of the Livingstone
girl. thJ Plmes boy, and others who
visited the Mickle store on the night of
William Smith, proprietor of the
Capitol News Company, by whom Mc
Kay Is employed, says he has always
found the boy trustworthy, and that he
knows he was In the Mickle stord be
tween 6:15 and 6:30 on the night of the
murder. He says ho was timing the au
tomobile, driven by Clarence Luskey, in
Which the boy was making collections.
He says the boy collected at the news
stand, 1130 Seventh street, before golhg
to the Mlcklo store, and that then he
collected at a drug store at Fifth and
L streets, going from there ta New
Jersey avenue and M streets bfnrn .
turning io tno unpnoi News Company's-
orciee, i-'zi it sirooi nortnwost. Mr.
Smith belloves that the receipt can be
found In tho Mlcklo store. He says the
same boy had collected money eight or
ten times from Mr. Mickle, and knew
Heard of Murder Same Evening.
Mr. Smith says he heard about Mr.
Mickle having been murdered about s:30
o'clock tho same evening, and since
then has come to realize that his col
lector must have been In the store at
about tho hour tho crime was com
mitted. At first he hesitated about tak
ing a part In the case, but more than a
week ago told what he knew to a de
tective. Tho McKay boy had moved
f i om where ho had been living at 914
Second street southeast, and hod left
