Lowe refused to be enticed, however, and
tho men seemed rather hurt at his evident

failed to get him into the game.
After lounging around awhile he started
out, four men following a Bhort distance
behind. When he reached the south end of
the bridge, they overtook him, and without
any parley piled into him.

PERMANENT AID FOR POOR
Central Relief Committee Requested
to Suggest a Scheme.
Stroncr Praise for Its Work last Winter.
Predisposed In Favor of tho
Potato Farm Plan.
The Commissioners of the District have
virtually reposed in the Judgment and in
genuity of the central relief committee tho
opportunity of meeting or preventing
emergencies such as th'ose which befell the
poor people of Washington last wintor.
The reliof committee mot yesterday in
the office of the chairman, Justice Cole,
the other members present being Crosby S.
Noyes, Dr. Ritchie, Mrs. J. W. Babson,
John F Cook, Miss Loring, and the
secretary, Mr. L. S. Emery.
Opening theproccediugthechairman said
that the committee had expected to receive
from tho Commissioners a communication
relating to a rocent conference between a
special committee of the relief committee
and the Commissioners. What was done at
this meeting has already been fully given
in The Times and especially as to the dis
cussion of (he scheme of industrial farms
on the Detroit plan.
The communication of the Commissioners
was read. They compliment th? relief com
mittee on its work, and express to it their
thanks and those of the people of the Dis
trict for a work bo admirably performed
without avff other loward than tho con
sciousness of duty well' done. The Commis
sioners then request that tho committee
shall assumo tho duty of formulating some
plan, either permanent or to meet emergen
cies, and to advise the Commissioners of tho
The permanent plan refers to the potato
farms, or any other permanent mode of
relieving tho strain on the public good will.
After a discusslou, which ivas partici
pated in by the whole committee, It was
resolved that it was best to postpono tho
discussion of any special plan until
Saturday next, when ail tho members of the
committee will bo urged and. will be re
quested to be present.
One plan has already been formulated
by Mr. Emery, to be submitted at tho Sat
urday meeting.. The experimental farms
appear to be the popular idea.

classes of those needing help are first
discussed. Ho divides these classes
Into the aged and tho infirm, those who
depend too much on public assistance,
and those who are out of employment by
Ihe excess of laborers over the demand In
Mr. Emdry has prepared a statement in
detail by which ho proposes to provide for
E00 families, that is 1,000 persons.
He suggests the purchase or rent of 2,000
acres of land, pving each family ten acres.
At $10 ah acre the coptof land, if purchased,
would bo $20,000; equipment with tools,
$3,000; seed for the first year, $8,000;
shelter other than may be reasonably ex
pected to be on purchased farms, $4,000;
provisions for first few months, $2,000,
making a total of $32,000 which is less
than was collected for charity last year.
The next meeting of the committee will
be extremely interesting.

Equity Suit To Be Brought to Re
cover Alexander Island.
CHIEF PROBLEM IS SETTLED
If the Water of the Potomao Flows Around
the Island At All Stapes Then the Out
law Track and Jackson City Belong to
tho District and Their Fate is Sealed
Question of Jurisdiction.
The question of Jurisdiction over Alex
auder Island and tha'OId Dominion Jockey
Club, or Grange Camp, race track and ail
its odious accompaniments, is to be brought
up in an equity suit of tho Supreme Court
of the United States.
The matter is in charge of Judge Dick
inson of the Department of Justice. He
has referred the case to District Attorney
Birney to make investigation and secure the
facts upon which to write the bill in the
The chief problem in the matter, that of
boundary line, has already been settled
at great pains and exponse. In 185S a
commission to fix the boundary between
Maryland and Virginia was appointed, and
in the autumn of that year did a good deal
of work. But the war came on and no
settlement waa reached till 1S77, when
Hon. Jere Black, Ex-Gov "William A.
Graham and Hon. Charles I. Jeukms had
been appointed a board of arbitrators to
take testimony and determine questions
in dispute. Gov. Graham died while the
investigation was still in progress and
Senator James B. Beck was appointed In
his place. Virginia was represented by
Messrs. William J. Robertson and It. T.
Daniel, arjd Maryland byt Messrs. Isaao
D. Jones and William Tinkney White.
CLAIM OF MARYLAND.
Maryland's chief reliance for her claim
of all the territory to the other side of
the Potomac was tho charter granted to
Cecelius, Lord Baltimore, in 1632, and the
generous act of Virginia at the close of the
revolution in the adoption of her first con
stitution by which she disclaimed all
jurisdiction over territory included by
charters of other colonies. The charter
of 1632 granted to Lord Baltimore the
territory included by a line running from
Delaware Bay along the fortieth parallel
"unto the true meridian of tho first fount
ain of the Patomac, thenco verging south
unto the further bank of tho said rivor.and
following the sntuc on the west and south
unto a certain place called Clnquaok, situ
ate near the mouth of 6aid river, where it
dieemboguea into the aforesaid Bay of
Tho original of this charter was lost, but
there were copies which, however, were
disputed by the Virginians. After a long
investigation the copies were sustained and
this charter was held to be binding. Then
arose tho question, what is tho "fur
ther bank" of the Potomac. The Mary
land couuscl maintained that it meant the
high water mark; Virginia, low water.
Tho arbitrators on this point decided for
TERMS OF THE AWARD.
Tho award was made on Jan. 6, 1877.
According to it tho line was to begin at
the point on the Potomac where the Maryland-West
Virginia boundary crosses and
run "at low wator mark following the
meandorlugs of said river by the low water
mark to Smith's Point." The award was
not signed by Senator Beck, but In a lengthy
opinion he docs not object to this part of
the findings. His excoptloti is to the result
arrived at for the line across the Chesa
peake and the eastern shore.
Under this decision, whose authority Is
unquestioned, the only problem will be to
determine whether the waterof thePotomao
flows around Alexander Island at allstages.
It wa8Stated yesterday by anoldsurveyor
who is familiar with the river, that Gravelly
creek has never been dry within his exper
ience and it is said Jhoro are records atuear
by old Virginia county seats which will
establish beyond a doubt that the ground
where the outlaw track and Jackson City
stand is a tnie island. All that is needed
18 time or additional force for the District
Attorney to send for copies of papers.
There was a steady stream of callers at
Lee's undertaking establishment, on Penn
sylvania avenue, between Third and Four-and-a-balt
streets northwest, yesterday,
their purpose being to see if the mysterious
American House suicide was at any time

Berlin, April 20. The wheel of parlia

The clerical proposals in some respects,

to overstep the mark and further intensify
The National Liberals, who at first
favored the bill, are now disgusted with
the reactionary character It is assuming,
and have deserted to the side of its op
ponents. Thus, its adoption depends en
tirely upon the support of the Center rarty,
the members of which demaud that the
bill be passed as they shaped it or not at
all. The conservatives, on the other hand,
declare they will not consent to place Ger

GOVERNMENT IN A DILEMMA.
The government is thus iu a dilemma,
for if it refuses the demands of the Center
party, the anti-Revolution bill Is certain to
be rejected, while, if it consents to the de
mands of the Centrists, the government
will alienate its conservative supporters.
As a solution of the situation, those who
fear both clerical reaction and socialist
encroachments, appeal to the emperor to
personally interview, as he did In the case
of the withdrawal of the Zctllitz Education
bill in 1 892, and bringabout the withdrawal
of the. anti-Revolution bill. Such inter

Hora Trouble Is 3rewing What He Has
to Say Will Se Outaide theCourt Boom.
Mr. Oliver P. Donn, the wealthy retired
merchant, of No. 9 20 Massachusetts avenue
northwest, was yesterday declared In
sane by a marshal's jury. His counsel wll
to morrow make a motion before Judge
Cox to quash the verdict. Mr. Worth
ington in argument threw oat a dark Wnt
of trouble yet to come between himself
and Mr. RossTerry, of opposing counsel.
The eighth day of the trial began yes
terday with Mr. Perry's conclusion of
his argument. Just before he took his
seat he said with regret he had been com
pelled to protest against what he consid
ered unprofessional conduct on the part of
his opponent. In doing so he sacrificed
a friendshir of many years.
Mr. Worthington in his address said he
regretted much that a matter having no
bearing upon the case had been brought in.
"I have lived here," he said, "thirty
years and practiced law at this bar twenty
five, and for the first time in my life I havo
now been charged with falsifying. I havo
nothing to say nowof yesterday 'soccurrence
"What I Ehall have to say win be outside

Mr. Worthington then gave his attention
to tne law in the case, giving to it a quite
dif fthnt aspect from that presented by the
opposition. He quoted authorities to
sustain his position and argued thatno wisa

of a man inMr.Donn'socndition,
The jury took the case at 2 43 p. m.. and
after an hour and a quarterdebberauon re
turned with a verdict. Mr. Worthington was
not present, and it was 4 10 p m. when ha
arrived. Tho jury was then polled.
READ THE VERDICT
When Mr. Clagett, as foreman, offered
the paper bearing the verdict to Marshal
Wilson he was directed to read it. It was
quite formal, but in effect stated that the
Jury had found Mr. Donn of unsound mind
since April 10, 1S95; that bo bad alienated
no lands or tenements while In that condi
tion, and was still possessed or lands and
tenements. The verdict was found in tho
presence of blank on April 20. 1895.
Immediately upon conclusion of the read
ing Mr. Perry said
"Mr. marshal, I except to the acceptance
of that verdict and object to the alteration
of it in any manner "
At the same moment Mr. Clagett was ex
plaining that the plank, he supposed, should
be filled in with the marshal's name, but!
ithcy were in doubt. Mr Perry objected to
having it filled In with any name.
Mr. Clagett said the jurors all understood
bat they were acting in thi presence of the
marshal, but the verdict stood as it left his
