the entire disposal of this

JOE SMITH'S PRANKS.
A Sensational Episodo in tho Mon
otony of Hotel Life.
HUQGJNG AN ELnVATOIlBOY
Tim John on Urn flood Old (lentteiiiiiii
"Who AViintid Ills lliittoiisHowiiilOii.
Satunlny night when Mr. Staples, llio
proprietor ot Wlllard's Hotel, took Jou
Smith, tho ex-clovator boy of that hostelry,
by tho car nud ejected him from tho houso
byway of tho main entrance, tho occur
reuco was looked upon merely ns something
that Is liable (0 happen any day In a big
hotel. Hut In a short wlillo It was whis
pered about thu rotunda that there was a
real sensation In tho house. All day ) ester
day tho matter was talked of, and subse
quently It was stated that Smith 1ml sworn
out n warrant for assault and battery against
tho proprietor. Tlio causo of Smith's forci
ble ejection from tho house was something
so spicy and nov el Hint every one who has
heard about it lias been In a titter.
It seems thut nuo ot tho elderly gnosis, ns
tho story goes, vvusfarawny f rounds home,
and tho buttons on his clothes needed a fovv
stitches, and it Is alleged that ho uskc 1 a
chambermaid If sho would not bo so kilidns
to come Into his room and sow Rotno but
tons on for him Tho chambermaid con
tended that sho was not an adept with
licedlo nud thread, hut sho would II 1 1 el a
girl who would ohllgo tho gentleman. So
plie bled herself oil, and wlillo In tho helps'
department tho girls nnd bo)s made up
their minds to have a little fun out ot tho
cldctly guest, whoso i)cslght Is said to bo
not the hist for a mm of Ids )cars. They
Induced Joo Smith to don tho dross ot ono
jOf tho girls, and then the) began to fix hhn
upso 111111 nu wouiii rcsemuiongiri nsmucii
ns possible. The) put false Tnlr on his
bend, with bewitching b vugs, powdeied his
faco nnd put a few bull towels in tho
bosom of tho dn ss, whilst his waist was
girded w lib a belt that w as Just too "girl) "
for uti) thing
The balauco ot tho story Is somewhat In
consistent. Uuo account si)8 that Smith
went Into Iho room, nnd that as hu entered
tho guest put his arm mound tho bundle ot
mnsculliilt In female nltlic Smith him
self si)s tint tho guest actually kissed and
hugged him Tliu watchman of the hotel,
howuver, declares Hint thu boy got no
fuithci thun thu hull, wheru lie wus nabbed
and made to return lo tho servants' qtl irters
and disrobe, ind Hi it subsequently no was
forclbl) cjiclcd by Mr. Stnplos.
Joo Smith was seen tills morning by a
CTtlTic represent itlvc Hu said th it ho was
In tho next room and that tho guost ho
cither does not know his name ol pretends
not to klskid him.
Smith has a short stubby mustnclio,
which would be a cleir glvu awn), but hu
tajsthu light was out, and that tho guest
did not nnd out tint ho was dressing a
man until the osi illation had been com
menced. Iho oiuig fellow Is not overt
reliable. Judging fiom his expressed Inten
tions, viz., that 110 will not say much nbotit
tho caso until ho sees whether the guest
w ill conic dow 11 with 1110110 . to prcv cut an
exposure, Smith admits thut no himself
wits locked up in thu pollco station Satur
day night 011 account of getting into a light
at uio scaling Kim..
Tho sensation and tho peculiar antics of
eotno of tho people concerned In it have
fiirnlslutl a lively topic of conversation In
and around the hotel. Tho help in tho
house go about glgirllng when the) hcai
Iho.sublcct mentioned, but they nto some
what o)stcr-llko when asked questions con
cerning tlio cplsodu of Satuiday night.
Lvidently tlie) aro all determined to keep
quiet, espcelall) ns It Is not definitely
known who tho prominent guest is that
wanted "somo buttons sewed on."
Tholdcntlt) of tho guest, who sustilns
onoot the principal toles In this titily
dramatic episode, Is pretty well established.
Ho Is supposed to bo an o-Congiessnnn
who was iccentl) sent by tho Government
on an Important mlsslou to France, and It
would seem ns If tho atmosphere of Purls
had excited an cxhllaiutlng Inlliienco
upon tho frisk) old gentleman's tcmpera
lncut. Tho warrant which Smith sworo out
against Mr Staples Is to thu effect that tho
guc6t In question had mado Impropei all
iances to ono of tho chambei in lids, and
that tho latter loaned him clothing In which
to petsonaten woman; that ho went to tho
room and was lecclvcd by Its occupant In
nuulTcctloii.itooit of w.a), but 60011 bo
camo seared at tho novelty ot his position
and made his escape as hurriedly ns pos
sible. Ho was subsequent! assaulted lij
Mr. Staples forpl.i)lng such a trick upon
tho guest Tho complainant was on hand
early this morning, but as thownriant had
not been icturncd, ho could uot testify.
