THE INAUGURAL SURPLUS
Chairman Bell Returns From His
Vacation in Florida.
Over Fifty Applications From Vari
ous Institutions for the Fund.
The Convention Hull Jdeu.
Mr. C. J. Bell, chairman of the Inaugural
executive committee, who has been ab
sent in Florida for ten days or so, has re
turned to' the city. Mr. Bell found a va
cation necessary after the long, contin
uous work of the inauguration, and es
pecially of the last two weeks. He passed
the time agreeably and piufitably, judg
ing from results, In Southern Florida, at
the Miami Hotel and in its neighborhood,
and wears again his pre-inaugural coun
tenance. As has been stated, the inaugural com
mittee has not yet been dissolved. There
are several matters yet to be rounded up,
the most important of which is the dispo
sition of the surplus, which will amount
to about $G,0Q0 or $7,000. It was at first
stated to be about $10,000, but this was
at a time when all the bills had not been
Mr. Bell said last night that the commit
tee would be called together next week,
when perhaps the final' meeting would be
held. He has already taken up the woik
where he left off. A meeting will be held
early next week. The longer the sur
plus remains unnppiopriated the more nu
merous become the applications for the
fund. Mr. Bell said last night that there
were at least fifty letters, each of which
asks for a share or all of it, or makes sug
gestions as to how the money could best
be expended. TheChildren'sCountrylioine,
the Florence Crilicndon Mission, the Asso
ciated Charities, several asylums and pri
vate institutions are applicants.
The committcejyill be met by a difficult
problem, but it will, no doubt, be solved
to the advantage of at least one, and
possibly several institutions, although
there arc some of the members of the com
mittee who are in favor of making the
surplus a nucleus for a fund to build u
city convention hall. It is proposed to
ask Congress for an appropriation to help
the citizens who may interest themselves
in this project. It is backed up by a great
many of the District military men, who
have in view the use of such a building
as an armory. The loss to the Government
every four years of from $70,000 to $100 .
000, when the balls are given at the Pen
sion Office, has been suggested as a good
reason why Congress should look favor
ably on the convention hall scheme. The
opinion of several of the prominent com
mittee men, however, is that the surplus
will be used this time for charitable pur

A Pension Office Clerk Assaulted
l)y a Druggist.
HIS FACE BADLY BRUISED
The Druiit Wanted nn Apology
for Alloyed Aspersions Against
IIJiu, and, Xot Getting It, Used
IIJs Fists A Warrant for Assault
Has Uecn Sworn Out.
Jeremiah A. Gardner, a Pension Office
clerk, yesterday swore out a warrant
against J. Nelson Paine, who owns the
drug store at the corner of First and It
streets northeast, for an assault, which he
alleges Paine committed upon him last
The nfrair, which was witnessed by a
large number of persons, occurred at the
ea.t front of the Pension Orflceatabout 4
Mr. Gardner had Just left the office, and
was mounting his wheel when lie was ap
proached by Paine, who said that he wished
to speak with him.
"I have no business with you and don't
care to have any conversation," was the
Ai tliis Mr. Paine gave the bicycle a
push which sent the rider sprawling to
theground. A large crowd assembled about
the pair, but no one attempted to interfere.
Mr. Paine, so Gardner claims, did not wait
for him lo regain his feet, but as he was
trying to disengage himself from the wheel
struck hlrn full in the jaw, knocking him
'He followed this with blow after blow
on my face," continued Mr. Gardner, In
telling the story, "but, as he Is the larger
man, I made no attempt at defense, but
attempted to escape Trom my cowardly
-Tliis I finally did, but not before he had
covered my face with blood from cuts in
flicted by a signet ring which he wore on
the hand with which he struck me."
A iriend of the druggist gave the fol
lowing version of the nxsautt last night:
"When MrrPaliicmado hisfirst remark,"
he said, "Gardner replied with nn oath,
telling him to get out or the way or he
would ride over him. Then, after he had
been knocked down, he got up and pat his
wheel behind him as if he were preparing
Tor a fight.
"Mr. Paine then said: 'I gave you thirty
days to apologize for your aspen-ion against
my wife. That's long enough for any de
cent man. Now, I want to know what you
Intend to do, because if you do not neolo
gize I'm going to thrash you. The thirty
days aic up today: that's why I'm here.'
"Gardner said lomcthiug, but It was so
low that I didn't catch It, but he drew
back his fist, and What happened next
came to quick it made you catch your
breath. Paine Just lit out one from the
shoulder, and you could hear the sound of
his fist as it struck Gardner's Jaw, like u
pistol shot. He went down in a heap on
the pavement, nnd when he got up again
theic was blood all over his face and he
had a cut that went from hi- chin up to
the i.ointof his Jaw. The young follow had
a seal ring on his finger, and that's what
'"Ah. far as I could sec Gardner never hit
him once, JTitthc way theotherone worked
his fists was a caution. First it was one
hand and then the other, and every time
he landed the blood flew. He caught Gard
ner one on the ncsc and another in the
mouth, which cracked his lips.
"It did not take more than a minute
altogether, and It was the quickest and
thehottestflglit I oversaw. Gardnerbroke
away and started for the building, but
the other fellow caught him by the arm
and turned him around and smashed him
again. Then lie let him go."
Mr. Paine in giving his reasons for mak
ing the assault, said that his wife had
told him of an accusation of Infidelity
which Gardner had made against him.
When he confronted the latter with this, he
denied the story, and accused Mrs. Paine
of telling a falsehood.
"I gave him thirty days to retract his
statements and apologize." Mr. Puine
continued, "and when he did not do that, I
thrashed him as I promised "
Mr. Gardner, when seen at his residence,
No. G26 Seventh street northeast, said:
"This matter Is all the outcome of a mis
take. Paine and his wife have been on
the outs for some time, aud her jealousy
caused her to accuse him of infidelity.
When she was asked where she received
her information, she became frightened
and said I had told her, whereas I had
not even spoken to her about the matter.
"This was about tho 9th of February
last, and that night Mr. I'aine came to
me and asked me if I had made such a
"When 1 replied in the negative he be
came very abusive. He snld he would
sec his wife again and if he found that
she had lied to him he would beat her.
If, on the other hand, he found that ricr
story was true, he threatened to thiash
"I intend to push this charge of assault
against hliTT, and furthermore, having wit
nesses in the persons of my wife and
housemaid to the threats which he made
against me, I shall have him bound over
to keep the peace."
