APPEAL TO COURT
Counsel for Proprietor of
Grand Hotel File Three
Three reasons are set forth In a peti
tion filed In the Court of Appeals today
by Attorneys Henry E. Davis and
Charles "W. Darr for the court to recall
its mandate to Police Court to revoke
the license held ,by Edwin J. Gardiner,
proprietor of the Grand Hotel.
The attorneys represent to the Appel
late Court that they wish to reargue
the case on a motion contending that
the license of Gardiner that the court
sought to revoke expired October 31,
last, and that the Judgment of the
court does not affect tho defendant's
It Is claimed by the attorneys that
Rule XXIII of the court provides that
no mandate shall issue within fifteen
days from the date of the opinion or
judgment unless upon special order of
the court, and that the mandate revok
ing the license was Issued one day after
the opinion was delivered.
The further claim is made that Sec
tion 8 of Rule XXV of the court, pro
viding that in cases brought to the
court on writ of error from the Police
Court the mandate shall issue without
delay. Is in conflict with Rule XXIII,
and If given effect denies any oppor
tunity for a reargument or motions.
The third reason assigned in the mo
tion is that the license held bv the de
fendant expired October 31. 1912, and
there is no license in existence capable
of revocation in the premises. It Is this
ground on which the fight .will be made.

standing in the wings of a focal theater,
where he Is employed, John S. Morris

of his neck. Bertie GUlman, a pretty
little vaudeville actress, who does a

at a target, the bell of which Morris
was expected to ring every time the gun
Morris decided the bullet must have
glanced against his collar, but he rang
the bell Just as faithfully as ever. Then
h "forgot the incident.
While on his way home "Morris felt
sort of queer about the neck. At first he
thought his collar was too tight, so
hc took It off. But still he felt queer.
So he stopped in at the German Hos
pital to have his neck examined.
"Why, man, there's a bullet hole In
your neck!" gasped the dispensary phy
sician. "That so?" Inquired Morris laconlc

TO BE FEATURED
Scout Masters Are Consider
ing Plans for Work of Or
ganization March 4.
Plans to utilize the Boy Scouts at the
Inauguration In some way "that will
bring out effectively the Idea behind the
movement are now being perfected and
Scout Commissioner Martin is holding
dally conferences with persons here and
with scout managers all over the
country, through correspondence, with
a view to making the boys a feature
of the ceremonies but in other than In
It is expected 'that there will be fully
I.900 visiting Boy Scouts here. Up to
the present only a few of the Atlantic
coast fjtatcs organizations have signi
fied their intention of being here at tho
time of th inaugural, but it Is known
that organfeatlons in other States are
considering the plan, and It Is probable
that organizations may come here from
the far West.
There are now more than 600 active
Boy Scouts .here and nearly 1.000 boys
enrolled so that the total active mem
bers may be Increased considerably. It
has been suggested that the boys might t
well be utilized as guides and carry on 1
bureaus of Information, to care lor
strangers and aged persons, act as
escorts for promlneilt men and women
coming to the city as has been done In
several instances by boy cadet organi
zations in cities where Grand Army
encampments have been held.
Some of the States are expected to.
send large delegations, especially Penn-
sylvanla and Virginia. An effort Is
being made, it Is said, to have present
a large delegation from Staunton,
President-elect Wilson's own homo
town. The Philadelphia organizations
will bring two Boy; Scout bands.
