Tc Virginia illage has prohibited the
liquor traitic -within its bounds, and as a
result Sunday is usually a day of quietude.
Several Wtxsks ago a party of cyclists from
"Washington -oiened up a keg or two of
beer near Falls Chprch , and as a result a
drttufeeii row followed, in which .four or
five young men were "wore or less injured,
but none of them seriously.
The yHug men Avho were the prime
figures in yesterday's disgraceful occur

came oat from Washington on their wheels.
They hutted in Crossman's Grove, near
the Twn, and proceeded to make them
selves comfortable for the day's drbauch.
Shortly after a wagon drove down the
toad and a number of kegs of beer and
baskets of sandwiches were unloaded at the
grove. The cyclists proceeded to get
very drunk, and feeling in a convivial
mood, invited a number of young men from
FaHs Church to partake of the foaming

John Molnsli, of Washington, and Rich
ard Terrell, employed by the National
Capital Brewing Company, became in-.olved
in a dispute with Sharp Vanderweiten,
of Falls CNircii. The three came to blows,
others toak sides, and soon the grove

In their drunken frenzy fists, stones,
sticks and knives were used as weapons
Sharp Vanderwerteu was knockeG.down,

amount of blood. His face is scratched
and bruised, while a large piece of flesh
was bitten from his cheek.
The Bitar attracted attention from the
town and a body of citizens hurried out
to Koe what was the trouble. The crowd
of rioters saw the rescuing parti coming
and In ltawfe fled from the scene. The
Wasbtagfatu men went off on their wheels,
leaving a number of caps, sweaters, shirts
and lent garments on the field.
Mcintosh, Yanderwertea and a few
others wre too badly injured to get

GEN. DILLON ISSUES ORDERS
Gross "egliyence Charged Against
Both FostK Allegations of Re

and Ignoring an Iiibpectlou of the
XT. V. U. Department.
The W. S. Hancock and John A. L.ogan
Commands or the Union Veterans Union
have been suspended on orders issued from
Union Veteran Union headquarters last
Saturday night. Such a wholesale sus
pension has not occurred in many years,
and will undoubtedly cause a stir among
the old soldiers In whatever organization
they may be.
Both commands are charged with gross
Insubordination in refusing to comply with
certain general orders, and for the specific
offence ot refusing to admit to their meet
ings a department Inspector. There are
allegations relating to the failure of the
commands to pay dues.
The order of suspension makes It per
emptory that the colonel ot the John A.
Logan Command must qualify under the
rules or be dropped from the rolls.
The replies of the commands to theorder
of suspension will no doubt be warm
replications, and may be expected, it
was stated last night, at the next meet

As nier.tioned above the&e orders will
stir up a big row in the ranks of tbo
union, as they deprive the officers and
delegates of W S. Hancock and John A.
Logan commands of all the rights, privi
leges and benefits ot the organization.
The record of the colonel of John A.
Logan command is to be investigated, the
result of which will be ot vital impor
tance to that officer, as it lequires him to
show that he served before the enemy
or bedrbppedfruuunembershlpinthc union.
There is expected to be a thorough over
hauling of the ranks of the union by Gen.
il- A. Dillon, who holds thcotganization to
be the greatest of its kind in the country.
He is 11a organizer, and It Is his desire to
see that every aian enrolled in it has the
requisite MjrvJce to be entitled to member
ship. "This organization," said Gen. Dil
lon lpst night, 4,is not for men Tho wore
uniforms but performed no service of
real value to the country- It Is the oigan
izatlon for the soldier who fought and suf
fered on the battlefields of the Eouth, and
we have no room for any soldier who can
not prove by record evidence that he was
at the f lont In the hour of need."
The official older from the provisional
department is as follows:
For gross insubordination in ref'ielng to

Bold Attempt at Highway Rob

MEDICOS TO THE RESCUE
Five Tramps Hold TJp n Party of
Two Ladles aud Two Gentlemen
Their Cries Bring Suecor Dr.
Schevin Leads With His Hight
The Enemy Routed.
A party ot four bicyclists, two ladies and
two gentlemen, were held up bj five
highwaymen Satin day night near the top
ot the steep hill on Blugden's load, Just
above l'lney Branch bridge. Only the
timely appearance of two well-known
WaMiingUm wnecluieu, l)r. Downey, owner
ot the Portland drug 6tore, and Dr. Sctievln,
the resident pharmacist of the Children's
Hospital, csived the membeis of tie party
from being despoiled of their valuables.
Blagden's road is a favorite resort of
the local wheelmen, and just above tho
riney Branch Bridge, there 1b a steep
incline known as Blagden's Hill.
The hill I well shaded aud at night
it is almost impossible to see a yard
ahead. On account of this and the heavy
grade it is the habit of the cyclers to
walk until this point Is passed.
About 10:30 o'clock Saturday night
Drs. Schevin and Downey went out for
a spin and selected this road. Being
expert wheelmen they decided to ride
up the hill. When about half way up
they heard cries for help aud jumping
off ot their wheels ran in the direction
from whence camu the calls.
Here in ono of the darkest spots of the
road they found a quartet ot young people,
two ladies and two gentlemen. In tho
clutches ot a quintet ot tramps. It was a
clear case of hold-up, and but for the ap
pearance of the doctors things might
have been exceedingly serious. As i t wns
matters were decidedly Interesting for a
short time. None of the party had any
weapons except Dr. Downey, who was
possessed of a smnll clasp knife, which
he flourished boldy In the air, at the same
time calling on the highwaymen to make
themselves scarce. This they refused to
do until some few minutes had paHd,and
they found that Drs. Schevin and Downey
were of the stuff from which knlght-cr-rants
When the reinforcements arrived on the
scone of batt'e, Dr. Schevin demanded of
tuo enemy what they were doing. Tho
answer of one was, "What buf-iness is It
The doctor Immediately ocgan hostili
ties, and struck out with hlB right, but the
blow was characteristically avoided by the
man disappearing behind a friendly fenco.
Then ho called out to Dr. Schevlu to come
over and fight him. Dr. Schevin Invited
him to step into the middle of theroud and
settle the difference, but the highwayman
did not respond to the Invitation.
The attacked party by this time had re
covered their courage, and, arming them
selves with 6tones, the combined forces
succeded in routing the enemy.
The doctors accompanied the young peo
ple as far as tho Washington and George
town Itallroad office and then returned
In search of tho highwaymen, but the lat
ter had made good their escape Dr.
Schevin described the men as belonging to
the tramp species and said tliat the matter
was not reported to the police, as neither
he nor Dr. Downey knew the names of the
people who were held up.
This Is adangerous locality and should
lie well lighted or be under the surveil
lance of the police. A short time ago a
young boy staited to ride down the hill.

FOR THE BABY.
A Valuable Hint to Hvery Pnther
There are two kinds ot babies in the
woild: the kind Avho have too little nourish
ment and the kind who have too much.
The first kind ot babicf starve because
their stomachs are too weak to digest the
amount ot food necessary for their growth
and healthful development, and the other
kind are overfed, with the result that the
delicate stomach and Intestines arc In
flamed, and as every mother knows, thou
sands of infants dio yearly when waim
weather logins from stomach and bowel
Opiates, coothing syrups and cathartics,
however mild, are not what Is demanded.
Go to the root of the trouble; assist the
child's digestion, give the little stomach the
aid necessary to thoroughly and promptly
digest its food, and thellttleone will thrive
and grow and gladden the mother's heart.
To give perfect digestion to the child it Is
onlynccessarj tojrivcinapleasantforta the
harmless dlgcttives contained in the
well-known tablets sol din drugstores under
the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
Stuart's Tablets contain no ho-callcd drugs,
but arc composed of pepMn, pure aseptic,
rruit acid!, starch digestives, and are put
up in lozeDge form, with sugar of milk,
very pleasant to the taste, and have been
used for years as the safest, best remerly
for any rorm of indigestion and stomach
troubles In adults, but recently manj- re
markable cures have been made in the cases
of weakly babies who failed to grow and
thrive as they should.
A Buffalo mother a bhort time ago who
despaired of the life of her babe, was to de
lighted with tho results from giving the
child these tablets that she went before the
notary public of Eiie Co., N. Y., and made
the following affidavit:

George Siniih Tries to Kidnap His
Child From Its Mother.
Escape With the Infant After an
Exciting Chase, but Is Later
Captured ond Locked Up.
Much excitement was caused la the
vicinity ot North Capitol and H btreets
last evening by the spectacle of a pretty
young woman struggling violently against
the uttemptt, of a man to telze an infant
from the carriage in which it lay.
The man was George Smith and the
woman his wife. Flora. Tbcy have not
lived together for some time, and it is
said that Smith has done little to support
cither his wire or the child. His wife was
compelled to leave him and xeturn to her
mother's home some time ago, although
her affection for him was still strong.
It is Ud he had never shown any interest
in the child, and when he approached the
mother last eveuiug she had no idea what
his intentions were, vhen Smith suddenly
leaned over and snatched the baby from
The mother wreamed and caught at the
baby, but her husband's strength was too
much for her, and he started down the
street on a run. The wife followed as
rapidly as she could, and her cries at
tracted a big crowd.
Smith's flight was too swift for the
wife, and tbe was compelled to return to
her mother's lwmc on E street without
her baby nnd almost prostrated with grief.
Her mother, .Mrs. Annie Anderson, at
once hur.'ied to the Sixth precinct nation
and related the affair Policemen on the
various beats were untitled, and in less
than two hours Policeman Corby detected
Smith tneaklng along North Capitol street
with a white bundle In hlsarms. He called
to him, but the man would not answer
and attempted to get away, butthe police
man ai too quick, and he hauled the
nan up short. The bundle was the baby,
and Officer Corby at once marched him
around to Mrs. Anderson's home, where
the wife was made happy by the return
of. the baby to her arras. Smith waslocked
up on a charge of disorderly conduct.

some time past from nervousness On
the night above stated Inspector Hollin
berger, with some of his men, went to
the Doten home aud began a search of the
house for Carr, they having received In
formation that he was In hiding there.
Mr. James Baldwin, the father of Mrs.
Doten, w'oo also occupies the house, says
that the officers entered without ceremony
and began to lansack the house, but that
If Inspector Holiinberger had told him
that they wished to go through the
house permission would have been given
The raid, Mr. Baldwin says, was re
peated atiout i o'clock Thursday morn
ing, rearing Mrs. Doten into spasms. Agala
the officers failed to find any trace of
Carr, and wher. they had retired Dr. W.
L. Masterson was called in, and found
Mrs. Doten in a precarious condition, suf
ferlng rrym what is known as hysterical
mania. Quieting opiates were adminis
tered, but the unrortunate lady was a long
while being quieted. Yesterday her con
dition was improved, bat grave fears are
entertained both by the husband and phy
sician. The detective department was told that
Carr was at the Doten .home by young
Charles Baldwin, who was locked up at
the Second precinct, and who claims that
the officers gave him whisky In order to
try and get him to tell anything he might
know about Carr's whereabouts. Young
Baldwin was believed to have known a
great deal about Carr's movements.
CARR WELL OUT OF SIGHT.
Police Without n Clew as to His
James Carr, the ravisher of little Bcsa
Bobinson, Is still at large, as every clew
followed up by the police has amounted
to nothing. There were no new develop
ments in the case yesterday, and the
opinion is gaining ground that the man
has reached a place where there Is little
likelihood ot his being captured.
Owing to an error In Major Moore's
report to tho Commifsiouers, as printed
in The Times yesterday, the station keep
er of precinct, station No. 6 was credited
with negligence ot duty in not reporting
the Carr case promptly. It should have
been precinct No. 2, as the Sixth precinct
had nothing whatever to do with the
Lincoln -t'ost Excursion.
Lincoln Post, ot the G. A. B., will give
its -annual excursion to River View to
day, and judging from the advance sale
ot tickets the attendance will be quite
large. The committee in charge ot the
excursion are putting forth every effort
to make it a success, and will do all
they can to make their guests have a
good time. All the numerous attractions
at the View will be ready to afford
amusement to all, and there will be music

The Sessford Case Winning Re
cruits to Christian Science.
REGARDED AS PERSECUTION
The Principles Involved Not New
QaestlonH of Law Passed Upon In
Many States BeforeThe First
Church of Christ, Scientist, Its
Fonnder aud Its Followers.
The Christian Scientists or Washington
are increasing In number, and very largely
this is due, it is claimed, to' the
persecution, as it is called, of the Chris
tian Scientist principles Of Mrs. Scssford,
whose interesting caw is now under ad
visement in the court of Judge Mills.
Mrs. Sessford Is a Christian Scientist, fol
lowing the doctrines of her religion and
profeosjiou, aud has been accused ot prac
ticing medicine without a license, and the
defense i3 that the law under which the
defendant Is being tried in unconstitu
tional. The Christian Scientists have been pro
gressing with amazlug rapidity of late,
but with such quiet and absence of trum
pets or prospectuses that very rew realize
what a i owcrful and numerous body Is
the aggregate congregation.
The church in this city is known as the
First Church of Christ, Scientist, at which
there are services at 11 o'clock on Suuday
mornings, and experience meetings on
Friday evenings. The latter are the
occasions for .substantial testimony to the
practical character of the Christian Scien
tist, because at these meetings thobe who
have beeu benefited by the doctrines, by
belief and practice, mnkepublie profession
of the facts in each individual ewe.
The last ot the services until the middle
of Jieptenur were held last Sunday. The
congregation was then increased by very
many members, as If in protest against the
case of Airs. Sessibrd, who Is a member
of the First Church of Christ. Scientist.
The foremost exponents of the doctrine
in Washington arc John F. Unscott. C. S.
D., and Ellen Brown Linscott, C. 8. D.,
thelattc" ol vhom, when a mere college
graduate, undertook to round and did
found the second church of this faith In
the United States, the church In Washing
ton. The first church was founded in
1883, In Boston, -with a small member
ship, yet at this time there Is a total
membership m the United States of more
than 200,000, at 500 places of worship.
The cult has crossed the water and is
making headway at the European capitals,
and especially In Paris and Boston- The
Boston church of this faith cost 5200,000.
Other flncedi flees are In Kansas City .where
there are three churches; Denver, Duluth
and Chicago. They have u.sed the Audi
torium In Chicago, but they are now
building a church to cost S100.000.
Dr. Linscott said yesterday, speaking
about the spread of the religion , that there
is scarcely a little town or hamlet in the
United States where thereis not a Lodr of
.students ot this doctrine. Dr.. Linscott
det-cribed the distinctive feature of the
worship or practice as that "inrteadof a
sermon they use the international Bible
lessons, the reading ot Biu'f texts, their
correlative passages in tnc Scriptures
aud the corresponding definitions of the les
sons from the text-Look, "Science and
Health, wit h Key to the Scriptures." This
book 13 by Rev- Mary Baker Eddy, the dis
coverer and founder of Christian Science,
her first conclusions on this ssubject
having been reached in I860. In the
Washington church there aie two readers,

The church people of tills faith .are
disposed to regard the Sessford case, as

Mrs. Linscott said yesterday that the
principle Involved was not a new one.
The question of law involved in this
caf-e has been passed on in forty-three
State?, and Invariably in favor ot the
defendant, except in Nebraska, and even
in that State the test case was de
cided favorably by jury but the law wai
otherwise construed by the superior court-

disciples of the new creed naturally revolt
against arrest and Interference by
the civil arm of a free government-. "We
look upon it," said Dr. Linscott, "as'o. mis- '
interpretation of an act or Congress; ua
act which wa never intended to cover the
practice or Christian science and mind
healing. Otherwise it would defraud the
citizen- of the right to choose whaS man
ner of treatment he desired it hewerem.
The arrest of the defendant was looked
on as a discrimination, totally unwarranted
by the statute, aud for this and other
reasons they look forward to having tho
utatuu declared unconstitutional.
Dr. Lins"ott regards the dispute as be
tween the Christian Scientists and the
"syndicated nllopathists and bomeopathisis
t-nd theJr combinations.'
The case, as will be noted, involves noS
only the contest between the local phy
biciaus and the Christian Scientists, but
also the very broad question as to whether
it is possible to separate the two functions
of the Christian Scientists, the doctrinal
and the practical, and to make of them
There is another cult for the betterment
of humanity or the. practical healing of
mind and body- A very admirable dis
course oa this subject was delivered yes
terday by Mrs- Jane W. Yarnall ut the
rcoms or the Wimodaugt.sis on New York
avenue. The theory of this latter doo- i
trine is thus stated: ;
"The problem that should interest every
man, woman and child that live is the -problem
ot life, and the way to solve thU 1
problem is now the popular theme with. -most
intelligent people ot the present age. .
"It has been demonstrated beyond ques
tion that the mind of man is the controlling
factor in man's existence, nnd by properly
training the mind to understand the laws of
his lelnghe may become master of circum
stances and enjoy full dominion over all
that pertains to physical existence.
"This Is the one and only known system
ot philosophy which enables man to liva
exempt from sickness, misfortune and
poverty, and insures him against the frlo-
tion and turmoil that wrecks so many
