Other Changes .Expected.
Already the official axe has begun its
dreaded swing at the recorder's office,
and as a consequence the clerks about
that end of the city hall were in a state
of suppressed suspense all day yester
day. Kecorder Cheatham left the building
at an early hour for the White House,
where he spent some in consultation with
the President regarding the affairs of
nis office. It was later reported that
several resignations have been asked for
by the recorder, and that some appoint
ments to fill the vacancies would be made
at onco The o'nly resignation demanded,
however, was that of Mrs. Kate D
Montfricdery, u clerk in the record de
partment. This change was the result, it is said,
of a letter written by the former chief
clerk, George Smith, whom ex-Kecordtr
Taylor deposed to appoint the lady clerk,
and a suit was filed at the time by Smith
in the court of claims praying for 2,200
Mr. Cheatham, It la said, was con
vinced of the Illegality of the change
and deposed Mrs. Montfrledery. Dr.

by the resignation of Mrs. Moutfriedery.

FINED FOK ASSAULT.
Interfered in Domestic Matter
With the TJsuifl Itesnlt.
Isador Belmont, a young man who serves
lunches to the night force of printers on
the Congressional Record, and Charles
Kendall, a race horse trainer, weieiu the
police court dock yesterday afternoon,
charged with severely assaulting Harry
Daley, a bartender, near Fourth and I
streets northwest, last Monday evening.
Daley's nose was broken, a tooth knocked
out, his left eye blackened and closed,
beside otherinjurles He hud been knocked
secseles3 and was covered with blood
when Policeman Karry Lanahan arrived
on the scene and placed Belmont under ar
rest, Kendall making his escape.
The tiouble grew out of a controversy
Daley had with Mrs. Leita Crawford,
whose husband committed suicide a few
weeks ago. Belmont and Kendallappeared
as her champions, and assaulted Daley as
he was leaving the house. Belmont was
released on $5 collateral soon after his
arrest, but Prosecutor Mullowny was not
satisfied with that amount, and he was
brought in on an attachment. In the
meantime Kendall was arrested.
A number of ladies testified, and -a
cross-fire chaige of threats was brought
against Daley by Mrs. Crawford, who al
leged that he threatened to split her head
open with n hatchet, and spat three times
In her face. Attorney Albert Sillers ap
peared for Belmont and Kendall, and At
torney Eugene O'Neill for Daley.
After hearing the witnesses, Judge Mills
said Belmont and Kendall had waylaid and
brutally beaten Daley in front of his own
home about a matter in which they had
no interest. He fined them $20 each, or
sixty days in jail, and they went down.
The threats case against Daley wad dis

It wus dlfcovcred by several of the law-
ycrs of the District yesterday that the new
law lias made an important omission In
not recognizing the existence of cuspidors

these authorities, in most if not ull or

considered as mandatory or be strictly en

This they say is a decided looseness
In framing the law, which may iu the
end make it null and void.
For tome reason the street car com

for this at the offices of the companies,

Dorothy Squires' Complaint Against
Charles E. Barber.
Series of Allegations .Cliarfrinjr I'er-
uecution Filed iu the Courtn.
Seelis X.iiv'ii Protection.
A bill of complaint 'was filed before the
supreme court Qf the District yesterday
by Dorothy E. Squires against Charles B.
Barber, In whicb-the plaintiff avers she
was formerly employed as typewriter for
Harber and thatfor good reacocs she left
him three years, ago. She avers that about
a year ago she determined for reasons, well
known to I5arber,to sever all relations with
him, and that Jier mother and other
mcmlKJrs of the family were cognizant of
her determination. She farther allegee
that she then icquested the defendant to
refrain from speaking or writing to her or
coming where film wus.
Since that time, she avers, he has threat
ened to injure her character, and com
pelled her at certain times to see him and
to act in waye contrary to her wish, and
with threatening to disgrace her and her
family if she did not do so.
Plaintiff ali alleges that she has been
made miwrable and unhappy by the con
duct of the defendant, and is determined to
oppose lils wishes, and that she has
notified Barber verbally, by writing
and through her mother and brother and
the police authorities, that he must cease
his annoyances and threats, and that if he
continued to do so she would expose the
matter regardless of the publicity.
The plaintiff then avers that since her
determination was made to him he has
pe sistently followed her, insulted her and
threatened to ruin her reputation and that
of her family if she did not submit to his
wishes, and that finally she was compelled
to have her mother accompany her to and
from her work for protection from his
The result of this was an affray between
Barber and her brother on the 14th Inst,,
and the arrest of Barher. Upon his promise
in writing and verbally that he would
not harass her any more the case was
continued In the police court. She charges
that Barber has failed to keep his promise,
but persists In annoying her, and that on
Monday last he came to her office in the
Post building and, against her wishes and
protest, grossly insulted her and threatened
her In the presence of others.
She prays that during the pending of
the suit Barber may be restrained from
in any way annoying her, either at her
home, 327 C street northwest, or at her
place of business or elsewhere. Mr. Camp
bell Carrington represents the complainant.
