Jt is stated jJosltively uy stockholders
in the Metropolitan Railway Company that
Mr. George Hurries, president of Abe com

most probably at the annual meeting of
the hUakholdec6 today. The informa

can be no question of its correctness.
Jt is probable that Mr. John C. Wilson,
the lawyer, a large stockholder in the
road, win be choeu as Mr. Harries suc
cessor. Mr. "Wilson will not he the active
manager of the company, however Mr.
Samuel L. Phillips, formerly president of
the road, and the Juan who introduced
the present electrical &ysteni, will prob
ably have this .position. He was always

Why he has consented to take up the man

Mr Harries is a progressive manuger
aud a believer In the mobt excellent service

A reporter for Tlie Times-had a conver

"I am much surpiised and very sorry
that this should occur," lie said. "Theie
can be no question that Mr. Harries is a
capable man and an excellent one for the
position. He Is young, hut he is business

who are objecting to him may find them
selves worse off."

ERIC SVEHS.0N IS MISSING
A Visitor From. Brooklyji Puzzles
He Xeit His Lodging Tloitse Tues
day Night and Did 'Not Come
Bach Heported to the Police.
Eric Svenson, a young white man from
.Brooklyn, N. Y., who lias been visiting
Washington, was reported to the police
last night as missing. It seems that
Svenson has but -an Imperfect knowledge
of English and is almost wholly ignorant
of the various localities of the city. A2
tnougli mature in years and intellect, yet
his appearance is quite boyish and con
sidering ail the circumstances ofthe case,
hewomd be one whom evil-minded persons
would select, as a victim.
During his hrief stay in Washington
Svenson has made quite a number of
friends, aud his remarkable skill as a
musician Jias rendered him extremely
popular as his boarding house, No 1123
Eleventh street northwest. The story,
as told to the police, is that Svenson
left his house on Tuesday tc visit some
of the interesting points, and he is said
to have told an acquaintance that he
intended, in the course of the day, to go
to the Soldiers' Home.
Jie ban not been ne.n since his departure
on this sight-seeing expedition.
'His continued absence caused alarm, and
the jiollce were notified of tlie disappear
ance. Jt is not known Jiow much money
the young man had with him when he left
hie boarding-house, and it is difficult to
geta clew upon which to work up thecass.
As far as is known Svenson was a tern
petate man. The entire neighborhood of
the Soldiers' Home has been gone over and
no one answering to the description is re
membered to have been seen in Uie locality.
Instructions Lave been sent to the various
police stations audio the nearby cities anda
thorough search is being made.

DOES I0T PAY HIS DEBTS
This Is the Charge Made Against
ONE CASE IN PARTICULAR
Borrowed a Largo Sum of alouey
From un IKulisted Man in His Own
Begliuent This .Cuused the fle
jpetlon of His JJCoinlnutlon fry
Lieut. Col. Henry E. JN'oycw, of the Sec
ond Cavalry, owes his rejection by the
Senate this week to a habit of not oaying
Ills debts. This is the geueiul cuuse or
the Senate's action, but theie warouecae
iu paiticular upon which the committee
based its adverse icpoit.aud upon which
the Senate iudoised the committee.
Some ycarx ago, when Col. Noyes win
assigned to one of the Western posts, ac
cording to the lertimony submitted to
the committee, he boi rowed a huge sum
of mouey, said to be -eveial thousand dol
Iais. from one of the enltrted men iu
bis own legiment. Thut such a sun of
money could be bonowed from a private
seems incredible, but the testimony be
fore the committee showed that this mun,
whose name the committee refuses to
disclose, was a frugal individual. He
was the harbor of the legiment aud hU
wife was the laundress. Between them
they laid up a considerable sum of money
in the course or years
C I. Nr.yes succeeded, in borrowing it,
but from time to time paid back portions
of it Aftei the enlisted man wasinusieied
out of the mm vice It i.s-said the colonel de
clined to make any further payments. Tin:
siiidiei brought suit against hid former
oolouel loi the remainder of the m-juey.and
secured a judgment for $1,800. Jt was
stated to the committee, that Col Noyes. in
hbj suit, pleuded the statute of limita
tions, first having told the soldier that if
he sued tic would never get a cent.
It appears, however, that Col. Jfoyes,
In an cTfort to liquidate sprue of his In
debtedness some lime ago. placed an order
with the paymaster general to deduct one
third of his pay for that purpose, but
the debt due this soldier was not the
beneficlniy of that fund.
TwiC2 since this charge lias been made
has Col. Noyes been promoted, and the
charge has never been raked against him.
It was the Intention some time ugo, it
is said, to court-martial him on account
of this matter. The court was appointed
and organised, but the witnesses failed
to appear, and there was nothing to put
in the record against him. Col. Noyes is
now on leave at Los Angeles, Cal.
