POTTER IS NOW FOR MDDD
He Will Support the Maryland Con
gressman for Senator.
Iseitlier He or Copt. Gordon X-ongor
Doubt the Fifth Maryland lilt,-
trlct MuuV. PatriotifeUi.
Congreshinan Sidney E. Mudd, of Iie
Fifth district of Marjland, has proved
himself the political magician of the Kast.
It hus been learned beyond any contra
diction that he has succeeded invo pacify
ing Ijis opponents that now home of the
bitterest have announced themselves :s in
line with the Charles county Reprcsentaii ,-e.
The latebt acquisition to the Mudd Sena
torial forces is Capt. Totter, of Laurel
district. The two captains (Capt. Potter
and Capt. Gordon) have been persistent
enemies of Mr. Mudd. They have worked
day and night against hl6 aspirnticuh.
They together organized anti-Mudd clubs
iu their respective districts and openly
announced that if Congressman Mudd
ascended to the Senatorial seat it would
be over their political corpses
Capt. Totter made no secret of the fact
that- liis opposition was the result of in
quiries concerning Mr. Mudd's patriotism.
The latter was charged with being in fa
vor of sectarian appropriations and not
poiticularlyhtr.jng enough against Uieuniiy
of church aud i-tate. Capt. Gordon char-ic-terir.ed
the Mudd element as nothing but
political heelers. It was these same men
that unseated Gordon, delegates at the
county convention held last year to nomi
nate a candidate for Congress. The M'idd
men won. His opponents refusedtolinj up.
They began an organised opposition, whish
was carried into the election, but failed
to accomplish its purpose.
As early as last January plans wore
laid to secure the selection of Mudd mem
bers of the legislature, which will have the
choosing of a United States Senator. The
anti-Muddites discovered this sghemo and
devised one of their own to frustrate the
Congressman. They began by organizing
a Republican club at Bladensburg, which
was decidedly against Mr. Mudd Its pro
moters were ex-Congressman Coffin, Capt.
O. C. Gordon and Capt. Totter.

brought them around all right, and thjy
are now on tbe road to recovery. Capt.
rotter's friends would not believe flat
he had changed his course, but it can be
asscited positively that he Las. lie Him
self is the authority for the statement.
"I am satisfied with Mr. Mudd'p Ameri
canism," he declared, yesterday. "We have
settled all differences that may haveeMsted
in thr past, and I shall support Mr Muddfor
the United Ptatcs Senate.
"My party demands this of me. I be
lieve Mr Mudd will vote against s'ectarian
appropriations, and I do not doubt that he
is thoioughly patriotic. If I want to vote
for Mr. Mudd I do not see that it is any
body's business but my own. lam wellable
to determine whether or not I am voting
against my principles."
Thus did Capt Potter declare himself.
On the other hand Gapt. Gordon has an
nounced that he is not opposed to Mr. Mudd,
He does not desire to be known Inthatlight.
Meauwliile the followers of these gen
tlemen are 0 1 sea. They do not know how
to take their leaders, and many r-till
doubt the bincerity of the change. It will
not be long now before the county pri
maries will be held, and delegates to the
county convention belectcd. If they are
of the right political complexion, there
s no doubt that the proper men will be
nominated to go to the legislature.

POWDERLY'S CASE PASSED
Supreme Council of the A. P. A.
Fails to Act.
Antagonism of Unbor Dodlen Sot Con.
sldered ut the Clofeiug SoH.siou.
Tbe supreme councilor the American Tro-tecth-c
Ast-ociation has concluded Us tes
sion and adjourned sine die. The most im
portant -work transacted was the con
sideration of the report of the com
mittee ou constitution and by-laws.
There wus a warm discussion over a
recommendation to extend the term of
office of the president from one to two
years, and resulted finally In the defeat of
the proposition. Another one coming fiom
the same committee, proposing to increase
the supreme president's salary from $2,300
to $3,000, was adopted. The salary of the
supreme secretary was also increased from
$1,500 to $2,000 per annum.
A new system of representation has been
decided upon by the supreme council. Here
after delegates will not be sent to represent
each 2,000 members, but so inuuy delegates
will be allowed to come from each Congres
sional district In the States. In the District
of Columbia triere will be one delegate for
each local council.
The American Trotectivc Association did
not take any action on the resolution against
Tcrrence V. Powderly. The later is a
candidate for Commissioner of Labor and
early in the week a delegate fiom the
Eastern section of the country offered a
resolution declaring it the sentiment or the
order that Powderly should not be given the
appointment. This resolution never came
before the council for a vote, but was dis
cussed somewhat at length at the time it
It developed that Towdurly is being
fought by certain labor organizations and
that the resolution would line the A. T. A.
with certain associations. This was cot
deemed udvlsable as the order desired
particularly to refrain from becoming In
volved In a labor contest. It was not
certain that Tdwderly's opponents outsido
of the A. P. A- were any more agreeable to
the order than he is, and therefore it was
decided to let the resolution stay buried in
the committee to which It was apnt.

Times, had several narrow escapes from
capture by the police Friday afternoon.
The first intimation Inspector Ho'.lin

was when a joung man, who had been
following her about on his bicycle, called
at police headquarters and informed him
that tire female counterfeit "shover" wab

Badendrier, of the Metropolitan road, took
another car and proceeded to the wharf,
believing that the woman might take a
ferryboat for Alexandria. In tbib, how
ever, they were mistaken.
The wheelman overtook the car and 'n
formed the conductor the woman was a
countetfeitcr. He also requested him not
to allow her to leave the car, but carry
her to the company's office, at the foot
of Four-and-a-half street. Accoidingly
when bho touched the electric button to

Ninth and F streets Junction, and suggested
that she be turned over to him.
The woman, however, alighted from the
car when it made its regular stop at Penn

the throngs on that thoroughfaie.
The wheelman kept the counterfeiter jn
sight and followed her to the Baltimore
and Ohio depot. She had by that time con
cluded thatniatterswere becomingentirely
too warm for her here, and decided to
leave the city forthwith. While she was
