Capt. Thomas L. Page, the proprietor .f
the Senate icstauraut, has had trouble
over the privilege which lit; lias enjoyed tor
tile last twelve years.
Iliiam K. Tappnn, who lialls from the
Eastern Shore of Maryland, Is an aspirant
for the liojur of catering to the appetites
ol the Seaatotia! epicures. Heha3(orti.u:ly
beeii in the employ of Capt." Page as
cashier, but now he ban iu hand a petition
for his employer's removal.
It will be remembered that th2 privilege
of running triJrSeimte restaurant is granted
by the Committee oa Rules and is nut to be
pmchased. It is a favor, pure anil biinple.
For the last twelve years Capt Page lias
held tliis piivilege, which was accorded
him during President Cleveland's first Ad
miiiihlintion. Capt. Page also runi a
hotel in this city, and that, too. Is fre
quented by many Congressmen. Away up
in Maine, the home Stale or the gieat
white czar, there is a summer hostelry
which is pieslded over also by Mr. Page.
It Leeamc quite necessary, recently, for
the restaurant proprietor to leave Washing
ton and make a trip to the cool regions
or his Maine lesort. This to look after the
gieat influx of patrons. Be selected Mr.
Tappan to take charge or the Senate, res
taurant In his aUencc. It is said lie
cautioned his cashier to be particularly
mindrul or the welfare of the guests, and
to uphold the reputation of the restaurant
in that direction. Or course, Mr. Page's
interests were to be incidental. Everything
was to be run in behalf of the patrons.
It rectus that Mr. Tappan was perfectly.
o!-edient In this direction. At any rate,
he made many- friends iu his new ijM
tion The Senators seemed to llock about
him and dwell longingly on ills virtues.
He claims that while the Senators were
in this loving mood they decided to then
and there throw over the absent rrieiut.
They wen; readj and willing to U' led
to the table by the new proprietor.
In short, there was so much or this talk
tlint Mr. Tappun immediately repaired to
the public typewriter who dwells In the
Se:ia'e corridjr. She was induced to pre
pare In proper terms a petition. Somehow
this began to circulate about the Senate
chamber Of course, It was addressed to
the Committee on Rules, or which Mr
Aldrich ischairman, but that gentleman has
been loo busy in the conference committee
to think about petitioners, rrogs' legs or
There were others, however, and their
names were; readily appended to tlw paper
requesting the removal or Capt. Page and
the appointment or Mr. Tappan as the pro
prietor ol the Senate restaurant. One man
approached Capt. Pace yesterday, saying:
"Why, 1 Fee you are back. I heard you
were not going to return; that you hud
given up the rotaurant.'
"P'know 'nothing of it," responded 'mine
"Well. I signed a retition f0r Tappan
under thf,t impression," was the answer.
"Vou see how it has been," said Capt.
Page to The Times representative. ".Some
one has been going around telling tliat I
had gone away and given up the privilege.
That wns the scheme to pet signers."' At
this point the fronds of Mr. Tappan an
nounced that iiis name would be with
drawn. From what can be learned Mr. Page ar
rived in the city Monday morning. It wus
tiien tlu.c he first heard of the plan. He
went to the Capitol and reproached Mr.
Tappan for his action. The cashier did
not deny certain things. He admitted the
petition, but claimed he was induced to do
it by certain dissatisfied Senators. Mr.
Page instantly discharged his cashier, and
they endeavored to erfect a settlement.
It was apparent that they could not
come to an agreement and this was em
phasized when Mr. Tappan positively de
clined V) give up the keys to the restau
rant. Capt. Page remonstrated, but In
vain Be v. as compelled to appeal to .jiie
of the Capitol police and the latter's
request for 1 he keys was iustautlj com
plied with by Mr. Tappan.
Senator Teller was the only member or
the Committee on Rules who was accessi
ble yesterday, and he said he had not even
heard that an attempt was being made
to change the management of the Senate

o'clock, via Southern Railway. The ad

Capt. Shilling learned lute yesterday that
he would be unable to leave his business
today, so that the trip to the Lone "Star
Slate will be under the direction or Lieut.
Trailers. Capt. Shilling will, however,
leave Washington on Thursday or Friday,
and this vrill bring him to San Antonio
in ample time, s:r.ce the Mortons are not
fcchedulcd to drill until Thursday, July 22.
Few people area-ware of the vasta mount
or work and seir-denial to which a
competitive drill team subjects Itself dur
ing the period of preparation for a military
contest of this character For weeks, every
evening must be" given up to the tedious
technicalities or the drill, and almott the
entire drill book is gone through and
practiced, with a thoroughness and ten
acity which must result in a condition
very near to perfection. Sweethearts and
homes are temporarily neglected in an
effort to attain perfection in the science
and cunning of Minerva.
. All this is now over for the Morton
Cadets, and the relaxation allowed by the
trip to San Antonio will be enjoyed thor
oughly by each member of the drill team.
The-next day of excitement and strain of
nerves will be the day or Inspection and
drill. Following this will be the all-absorbing
moment just following dress
parafiu on the last day or camp, when the
contest is a thing or the past and every
one of the thousands in the assembled
multitude holds its breath, and the heart
beats with expectancy as the senior judge
steps forward from the little group of
Army officers, and in a clear, ringing
voice says, with much deliberation:
"On the part of the board of judges for
the contest, I Leg to announce that the
first prize of $2,000 and the Galveston
Eemi-Cer.tennial Cup, carrying with it the
title of 'Champion military company of the

moment is worth all the hours of hanl work
which have been gone through by any

Mortons are now looking forward to, and
many expect that theirs will be the hearts
to throb with pride on that final dress
parade in San AriUmlq.

Alleged Defaulting Treasurer of
Columbian University in Court.
Robert H . Martin, the former secretary
and treasurer of Columbian University,
whose alleged defalcation of $13,950 of
the university's funds was announced and
created such a sensation several months
ago, was brought before Judge Cole, sitting
In criminal court N'o. 2, for arraignment
He was represented by Attorney A. A
Lipscomb. Martin himself, neatly dressed
and presenting a prosperous, well-fed ap
pearance, did not take the chair usually
provided for prisoners at the side of the
attorney, but sat on one side of the court
room among the spectators, while his
counsel pleaded for him.
When the case was announced Lawyer
Lipscomb arose and said that he would
waive the usual reading of the indictment
and would enter a plea of not guilty.
"That is all, then," stated Assistant
District Attorney Shiliiugton. "It will
not be necessary to renew Mr Martin's
bond, as his present security is valid iintil
the case Is finally disposed of."
This closed the proceedings, and Mr.
Maitin left the court, followed by his at

HELD FOR THE GRAND JURY.
Intimation of Graver Offenses Than
Charged Against a Prisoner.
Matthew Chatc, colored, was charged In
the police court yesterday with house
breaking. Louisa Quinland, of No. G43 L street
southwest, testified that she was awakened
on the morning of the 9th instant atabout
3 o'clock by the moving of a chair. She
saw some one in the room, but could not
identity the prisoner.
Jutnes Adams and George H. Stafford
testified that their business keeps them
out till a late hour In the morning, and
they identified the prisoner as a person
whom they saw leaving Mrs. Quinland's
house on a run on the morning of the 9th.
They further testified that the prisoner
was in his bare feet and that he was coat
less and carried his shirt in his hand.
"I think," said Judge Kimball, "that
this is a case Tor the investigation of the
grand jury. The man's condition when
seen would seem to suggest something rar
more serious than housebreaking. I will
holdhimforthe grand Jury. Bond, $1,000."
