A meeting of the National Fencibles was

jod liarnard, ot tne firm of Edwards &
Barnard, attprneys, as successor to Walter
S. Cox, resigned, an associate justice of
the Supreme Court of the District.
Gen. -Thomas H. Anderson was named
to supersede Henry E. Davis, as "United
States Attorney for the District of Colum-
bia, and Louis A. Dent, iormerly "United
States Consul at Kingston, Jamaica, was
appointed Register of Wills for the Dis
trict, to fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of J. Nota. McGill. The nomi
nations for these offices have been anx
iously looked for, especially by the mem
bers of the District bar, ever since the
vacancies occurred, and there has been
much speculation as to who the President
would name for the positions. There
were several aspirants for the position
of the associate justice of the Supreme.
Court of the District and for the tittor-
neyship, but as it was expected when
Mr. McGill resigned that Mr. Dent would
be named to succeed him no one else was
urged for the place.
During the last week or two the ques
tion of who would be named by the
President for the first two positions t-as
been the daily topic ot discussion among
the members of the har. The chief in
terest, however, centred in the selection of
a successor to Justice Cox. For the last
ten or twelve days, however, only three
of the aspirants lor the position Henry
E. Davis. Andrew B. Duvall, and Job
Barnard were considered to be in the race.
Then it was understood that Mr. Davis
had Withdrawn from the contest. From !
that timo on rumor had it one day that
Mr. Duvall had been decided upon by the ,
President, and on the next it was main-
tained with great certainty by the friends i
of Mr. Barnard that he was Mr McKinley's
choice for the position. Even up to the
time the nominations were announced
yesterday, there were many who still
claimed that it was very doubtful on whom
the President would confer the honor of
the associate justiceship.
When the announcement was made, how
ever, there was but one opinion expressed
bv the members of the bar and other
prominent residents of the District
every hand it was acknowledged that the
selections of the President were excellent,
and were the result of careful enquiry as
to tho -fitness of those suggested for the
Mr. Barnard's Career.
Mr. Barnard may properly be called a
District man. Although he was born In In
diana, he has been a resident of the Dis
trict and has been closely identified with
its interests for nearly twenty-six years.
Ho was bom in Porter county, Ind., June
8 1844, and is consequently fifty-five years
of age. He is descended from old Quaker
stock, his ancestors having been among the
original settlers at Nantucket, and who
removed to North Carolina during tho lat
ter part of the eighteenth century. In 1811
Mr. Barnard's paternal grandfather moved
from North Carolina to Indiana, where the
family has since resided.
Mr. Barnard was educated in the public
schools of Porter county, and also at the
Valparaiso Male and Female College. Lat
er he graduated from the law department
of the University of Michigan. In 1867 he
began the practice of law at Crown Point,
Ind., where he remained until 1873. In
that year he came to Washington, and was
appointed assistant clerk of the Supreme
Court of the District, succeeding Charles
McNamee. JHe held this position till 1S76,
when he formed a partnership for the
practice of law with his brother, Milton C.
Barnard, and James S. Edwards. This
partnership continued until 18S2, when
Milton C. Barnard withdrew from the firm,
and went into the title examining business.
The firm of Edwards & Barnard still ex
ists. In 1862, when only eighteen years of age,
Mr. Barnard enlisted In Company K, Seventy-third
Indiana Volunteers, and served
throughout the war, being mustered out of
the service in July, 1865. He was a mem
ber of the same company as was Major L.
P. Williams, who is at present the assistant
cleric of the Supreme Court of the District.
During the war Mr. Barnard saw much ser
vice in Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.
Mr, Barnard married Miss Florence Aurora
Putnam, n lineal descendant of Israel Put
nam. In 1890 Mr. Barnard was appointed
a member of the board of trustees of the
public schools in the District and he still
holds that position.

Gen., Thomas H. Anderson was born in
1848. He is a native of Ohio, where he
held several important political offices. He
was chairman of his county committee and
the Congressional committee in 18S9, and
became subsequently a member of the Re
publican State executive committee of
Ohio, and a member ot the city council
and board of education or Cambridge,
where he was also president of several
corporations and business enterprises
Having been admitted to the bar he prac
ticed law in the State and Federal courts
of Ohio, the United States Court of Claims,
and the Supreme Court of the United
While engaged as principal of the High
School at Cambridge, his home, he resign
ed his position in 1871, in order to practice
his profession in that city in partnership
with Hon. J. D. Taylor, afterward the
President of the National Building and
Loan Association of the District of Colum
bia.. Upon the election of Mr. Taylor to
Congress in 18S2, be became the senior
member of the law firm of Anderson &
In 1887 he was a prominent candidate for
Attorney General of Ohio, and in ISSy.was
appointed by President Harrison as Minis
ter Resident and Consul General of the
United States to Bolivia. Congress having
advanced the rank of the Bolivian mission
in 185)0, the President again appointed him
as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plen
ipotentiary to that republic.
Coming to Washington permanently in
1S93 as the senior member of the law firm
of Anderson, Doan & O'Neale, he soon took
high rank as a lawyer in this city. For the
past three years Colonel Anderson has been
manager and general counsel of the Wash
ington National Building and Loau Asso
ciation, which, under his guidance, became
a very successful institution.
Colonel Anderson was tendered the office
of Postmaster of the District of Colum
bia by President McKinley, but he declined
to accept the position.

Mr. Barnard was seen yesterday after

its introduction to Washington four years
ago by formally opening the Immense store
to enable the public to inspect its many
wonders for the fall and winter.
The throng of visitors to the place found
in the basement an assortment of house
furnishing goods and crockery, complete
in detail and sufficient in quantity to seem
ingly supply the entire city. Everything
imaginable used about a home may be
found there, and the low price induced
many persons who visited tne basement
-rom curiosity, to make large purchases.
The first floor ot this great department
store is subdivided into many departments.
In one may be found dry goods, flannels,
etc., in auother, silks of rich colors, dress
goods of the prevailing patterns, and golf
clothof every possible design. In another
department may be found every 'article
needed fctr a gentleman's toilet, and mear by
ladies may obtain the notions they require,
including jewelry, gloves, etc. The hos
ier' department has a complete stock ot
goods of the newest patterns, and the un
derwear exposed to view is of a variety to
suit all patrons. Tho art department is
overflowing with bric-a-brac, fancy cush
ions, needlework, etc.
Perhaps the most tasteful and delightful
display made by this great house is in the
millinery department on the second .floor.
Here may be found creations of the mll
tners' art in the most elaborate and ele
gant designs. The imported hats are truly
gems, and those made In this country are
unusually attractive and bewitching, the
greater portion heipg correct copies of
very expensive imported styles. Fur, birds
of paradise, velvet, and Persian wool is
displayed in the creation of these beauti
ful hats in the most catching manner of
an unusually clever milliner.
, The cloak department for ladles and
misses is a wonderland, and includes golf
capes, coats, fur jackets, collarettes, etc.
The display is an expensie and tasteful
one. The same may be said of the tailor
made suits which are marvels of workman
ship and quality. Every article is repre
sented honestly, and if it does not prove
satisfactory the house follows its well
known custom of refunding the money or
exchanging the garment. A new depart
ment is that for infants' wear. Here may
be obtained any article needed for In
fants. This stock has the largest assort
ment in this city. It has been made a
specially. The boys' clothing department
is larger tills year than ever.
Goldenberg's introduced in this city the
custom of trimming -hats free of co3t for
its customers, and the practice will be con
tinued this year. A large corps of millin
ers has" been engaged expressly for this

The year book of the Catholic Unlversitj
of America for 1899-1900. which has just
been issued, contains much interesting In
formation affectins that well-known insti
tution of learning. The university begins
the second decade ot its existence with th
opening of the new- year, October 3. It It
one of the two universities in America.
Clark University being the other, devoted
exclusively to graduate work, requiring for
admission to Its courses the previous com
pletion of a seminary or collegiate training.
From a beginning, in 18S9, of four pro
fessors and thirty-3lx graduate students,
one building, and small endowments, it has
grown until it had. in June last, thirty
four professors and other Instructors, 16S
graduate students, three principal build
ings, and other property to the value of
nearly a million dollars, and endowments
amounting to nearly one million dollars
The chief aim of the university Is to
prepare men for the doctorate and to offer
opportunities for research and Investigation
to those who have already won tha doc
tor's degree. It has conferred the degree
of doctor ot sacred theology upon three,
the degree of doctor ot philosophy upon
two, the degree of doctor of letters upon
one, the degree ot doctor of civil I3w
upon five, and the degree of doctor of law
upon three- It has conferred frequently
tho licentiate In sacred theology and the
master In law. also the bachelor in law.
upon men who have completed a three-year
course after attaining the baccalaureate in
arts in some good college; also the bacca
laureate injsacred theology. In philosophy,
and in science, upon those who have come
here for the advanced degrees, after having
completed a seminar or collegiate course
at institutions that do not confer degrees,
as is the case with many Catholic semi
naries and colleges in America.

immediately about the university, having
buildings of their own located on grounds
contiguous to those of the university; sec

The last day of Creston Clarke's engage
ment at the Columbia was marked by the
presentation of two romantic plays, neither
of them many grades above mediocrity.
"A Son of France," which was done at the
matinee, is an adaptation from the French
a conventional story of the revolution at
Paris. Mr. Clarke appeared as C tizea
Louis Martel, of the Committee of Public
Safety, and Adelaide Prince as the Duchess
d'Arraine, both showing to their usual ad
vantage. At night a '"comedy" written by
the star in collaboration with Louise Mal
loy, of Baltimore, was produced. Tae plce
proved to be much better than its prede
cessor of the afternoon, and pleased, the
rather small audience in attendance. Mr.
Clarke was seen as the Marquis Hector de
St Lo, and Ml33 Prince as Marcelfe de
Blois. Of the support, John Carter de
serves the most complimentary mention.
The end of what was almost a profit" esi
engagement at the National came last
night, when the- Jaraes-Kidder-Hanfpnl
triumvlratp appeared in "Macbeth." The
tragedy? was -well acted, all through, ani
staged in- a manner somewhat out of ihe
common. This care in production andTiis
trionic excellence have been notable In all
of the three presentations shown here, anl
have been so generally appreciated that
there can be little doubt of the Improve
ment the next local booking will mark over
this. On Monday evening "Because She
Loved Him So" opens at the National.
