Despite .the previously announced
plans to close encampment headquarters
on "Labor .Day the pressure of work was
bo great that Secretary Barry Bulkley,
or the executive committee, cut short
his stay at Warrenton, Va., and return
ed to the city on an early train yester
day. A few moments after Tie opened
the front door he was besieged with
visitors that kept him from the volumi

Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey's return to
the city and to the work of the woman's
auxiliary committee, of which she Is
thtf chairman, was also a matter ot
much satisfaction. Mrs. Mussey reached
headquarters shortly after Mr. Bulkley
and shortly afterward was joined by
Mrs. McCullough, the able secretary of
the committee. Both ladies worked hard
the greater part of the day and expect
to push to rapid completion the work

No Danger of Congestion.
In reply to a complaint from a Wash
ingtonian that If the veterans' parade
disbanded at Seventeenth Street there
would be congestion at that point,
which coniplnlnt was forwarded to Col,
A. N. Blakcman as the marshal of the
line, the last named has written Mr.
Warner, saying In part:
"Your correspondent Is mistaken
about the parade being dismissed at
Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania
Avenue. The route will be to Seven
teenth Street, thence north to K Street,
where the dismissal will take place.
This course was selected because of the
number of wide streets that converge
there and which is not the case with
Eighteenth Street. There will be no
congestion at the point ot dismissal. I
hope you are making satisfactory
progress with your arduous duties. With
your able management I am .sure every
thing will come out right. I expect to
be in Washington September 10 or 11."

JOHN C. NELSON TO
Alexandria County Jury
Unable to Reach a
ELEVEN STAND FCR ACQUITTAL
Disagreement Arises Upon Contradic
tory Nature of the Evidence Case
May Be Nolle Prossed Tighe Put on
John C. Nelson, on trial In Alexandria
county courthouse on the charge of
arson last week, will be given a new
trial on September 22, the first day of
the September term of court. The Jury
which received the case Saturday were
unable to agree as to whether or not he
burned the gambling houses at Jackson
Cfty on the night of July 14, and upon
reporting no verdict to the judge yester
day morning, were discharged. Eleven
of the twelve men voted for acquittal,
one Juror remaining steadfast in his be
lief of Nelson's guilt.
After the report of the Jury to Judge
Love yesterday, that they were unable
to agree on a verdict, Messrs. Bendhcim
& Sbllllngton, Nelson's counsel, asked
the judge for his release on ball pending
a new trial. Judge Love said that he
would take the question of bail under
consideration, and announce hl3 decision
in regard to the matter on Thursday

morning when court opened. Nelson will
remain In jail In the meantime.
The Jury which failed to return a ver
dict announced to the judge that they had
not disagreed upon a question of law,
which might be cleared up by further
legal Instructions from the court, but
upon a question of fact, arising from the
contradictory nature of the evidence.
Commonwealth's Attorney James E.
Clements, upon the announcement of the
Jury that they had failed to agree, moved
the court that a new Jury be Impaneled
and the trial proceed at once, as tho
prosecution was prepared to go on. The
counsel for the defense objected to this,
stating that as they had expected tho
trial to come to one termination or an
other by yesterday, they had a number
of engagements which It would be neces
sary for them to fulfill.
It Is possible that ihe case njay be
nolle pressed by the Commonwealth be
fore it comes to trial at the September
term of court, although this result is
not confidently expected by NeUon's
Case of Tighe Up.
After the Nelson case was disposed of
"Jack" Tighe, who is charged Jointly
with Nelson with having applied the
torch to Jackson City on the night of
July 14, was brought into court. Attor
ney R. C. 'l. Moncure, of the firm of
Machcn & Moncure, who represent;
Tighe. moved the court that the Tigoa'
case be continued until the next term of
court. Commonwealth's Attornpy Clem
ents objected to the continuance.
A compromise was finally effected and
the Tighe case will come up. on next
Monday. It Is likely that the case will
take almost as long 03 the Nelson case
did, for ihe defense will put twenty-one
witnesses an the stand.
