s OUR GRANDMOTHER. Curious Facts About the Mother of Washington. None of Her Family Ever Laid by Her. DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE. Washington Himself Didn't Place a Tombstone for Her. Washington, May 14. Special. When Coxey's army had been camped hero one week. It had considerably increased in numbers, but comprised less than half of tho original members who had tramped across the mountain in its ranks. So your correspondent is informed by one who was with it through Pennsylvania and Mary land, and so ho verily believes from obser vation here. In fact, all those who came for sport and all who really want work got out of it rapidly, and tramps and hummers flocked in in such numbers that Coxey and Browne actually had to sot guards to keep them out. B;it t':ic really surprising feature of tho case is that in a city like this 400 or S0O men could live tolerably well for over week on what they collected from Bight seers. I'ublic Improvements Contemplated. The Washington board of trade and the promoters of building; generally are telling us that tho Coxeyitcs must get away pretty soon, or they will havo a chance to work. All sorts of fine schemes are projected to bo undertaken as soon as congress gives tho authority. There is, we are told, to be an entire new system of railroads for city and District on what may be called the underground trolley system. Groat things are promised as a result of utilizing tho water power cf tho Potomac falls, and city and District pre to be supplied abundantly with electricity for lighting and motive power. If congress v.'ill or.ly act that is, If the two houses can agree upon the site a groat Ixjoiu in a small way is to result from tho beginning of work upon the new government printing ofiice. There is also to be a vast system of Improvement for the Potomac river and an electric railway to Baltimore, and these are but a few of many fine schemes which aro to boom things as soon as congress passes the nec essary laws. All this time the house committee on the District of Columbia proceeds with its usual provoking slowness and still has 116 bills under consideration. Many of these, of course, are mere private bills, but those In which the lxard of trade takes an active Interest are highly important. " Tho bill to allow the Kotk Creek Railway company to extend its lines through the city, which had been fought over so venomously, seems to bo hung up at last. The commis sioners of the District who oppose it have prevailed. It opened up the whole question of tho trolley method of propulsion, but the managers of tho Alexandria and Mount Vernon electric road claim that their system has all tho advantages of the trolley with none of its evils. This is called the Love elec tric conduit system and Is now in operation on the U street branch of the Rock Creek railway. It need not bo described, except to say that it is a sort of underground trolley, and the great fight has been to get permission to extend it through the city. It is also known as the Buda-Pesth system. So far as anything can be stated with certainty of tho action of congress, the. measure is defeated for the present. TMstribotion of Wk altli. Incidentally it is of some interest to note that the completed assessment shows Washington to be not only a wealthy city, but one where wealth is distributed with surprising approach to equality. The en tire assessment of real estate in the Dis trict Is a little over 5191,000,000 and of personal property not quite $ 12, 000, 000, on which the taxation is almost exactly 1 per cent, so tho District is not so badly op pressed by taxation without representa tion. It also appears that 23,000 persons pay taxes on le&s than $10,000 each and only C55 on $40,000 or more each. Of all the social or semiofficial events of the season nqne lias attracted such general Interest or brought out so many curious facts as the dedication on tho 10th inst. of the monument at Fredericksburg, Va., in memory of Mary, the mother of Washing ton. As was long announced in advance, the president and many officials took part. and there were many attending festivities, Including a Masonic banquet. It has only been four years or so since the ladies or ganized the Mary Washington Memorial association, of which Mrs. Amelia C. Waite is president that is, president of the lady, managers, though the nominal first place is held by tho president of the United States. Mrs. Roger A. Pryor is Tice president, and other ladies of Wash ington and Virginia hold various positions. The singular facts are that Mary Wash ington, pursuant to her own request, was buried on a knoll on the plantation of her only daughter, though her husband was buried in another place, and none of her family has ever been laid by her, nor has any memorial ever been erected. There is not a line to show that Washington ever contemplated erecting even a tombstone?, though he outlived her 20 years, nor does It seem that any of the family took any ac tion in tho matter: The only reasonable conclusion is that they thought her request to be buried there was a mistake and ex pected her remains to be removed to the family vault of the Washingtons on Bridge's creek, in Westmoreland county, where her husband, Augustine Washing ton, was laid. Tardy Recognition. About 60 years ago some Now York gen tlemen visited her grave, finding it unpro tected even by a picket fence and trampled by the cattle and horses grazing in the old field. One of them was so affected by the sight that he immediately ordered a small monument and fence, but as he died before the stone was erected it lay by the grave for many years until it became worthless for the purpose. And yet this is the grave of the woman who gave us our political Moses, and according to one account pre vented his entering the British navy, which would have assuredly made him a naval officer of George III instead of the Father of His Country. However, the American ladies of this day have done the honorable thing at last, and the occasion has been fittingly celebrated by officials apd citizens A round of the house committee rooms in these rather quiet times of that chamber shows that many pecsons with local inter est are still haiamerins; away despite the ftwt that little encouragement is offered. JTor instance, a resolution has been intro Cueed and ref oimU to the house committee on merchant marine and fisheries to In quire into the oil wells at Terre Haute, Ind., "Which are said to. be dumping their waste oil into the Wabash and killing the fish. Before the committees on education, labor, land and so forth are even more than the usual number of bills and resolu tions for Investigating and reforming ev ery evil of the day, and these are but speci mens of the work expected at the tail end of the session. THE ANNUAL EXCURSION. Of the Santa Fe Employes to Take Place . X.a,te in J nne. The meeting of the Santa Fe shopmen at Trades Assembly hall Saturday after noon to take steps toward the excursion they expect to have in June was well attended. P. E. Cook presided and Fred Lyman acted as secretary. Committees were appointed to confer with shopmen and officials, and find out just what can be done, and report at the next meeting, which will be held at the same place next Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. It is quite probable that the excursion will take place on the last Saturday in June, as Treasurer E. Wilder has assured the men that they will be paid about the 20th. No point to visit has yet been de cided on. A DANCE I OK M K. FKEV. Albuquerque People Give a "Hop" In 11 ! Honor. On his arrival in Albuquerque, N. M., last Friday afternoon. General ' Manpr 7 T rr i. - . 1. rey, oi me oanta r e, was given a reception by the society peeple of the city. The morning Democrat savs of it: "Mr. Frey arrived here yesterday after noon and preparations were' promptly made after news of his presence here was rumored about town, to extend him pieasant greeting in the form of social courtesies and attention, for Mr. Frey is not only popular among railroad officials and business men, but a prime favorite in society, invitations to a hop were hastily sent around among some of the leading gentlemen and ladies of the city, and when Mr. Frey reached the hall of tne conservatory of Music in the even ing more than twenty couples were pres ent Dancing was the order of the even ing, and under the inspiring strains of music directed by Prof. Di Mauro every a uuu enjoying me gracelul steps of the dance. But "How noiseless falls the foot of time' That only treads on flowers." for the hour 11 o'clock was reached be fore any of the merry companv could realize it, and as Mr. Frey must take the train for El Paso in waiting for him at this hour, the music was stilled and tho dance came to an end, while all joined in wishing their guest good night and all manner of good things." CENEBAL KAILKOAD XOIES. Railroads and ltnlrol Men Along tne Ktiusiii Llne The riprapping along the east bank of the Missouri river at Atchison has been stopped, the $1,500 appropriation made by the Santa Fe, the Rock Island and the Burlington, having been expended. There is trouble about getting a new ap propriation as the Burlington refuses to stand its share. The work will probably soon be continued, however. Another long string of stock cars went into the Santa Fe repair yards today. Santa Fe Engineers O. Smith, Wm. Frisbie, John McNeill and . Edward Webb, have returned from Hutchinson. General Baggage Agent P. Walsh of the Santa Fe, has returned from New Mexico. The Santa Fe machine sJiods were de serted Saturday save for a - few of the foremen. It was the first Saturday of the new order and the men were not work ing. Division Superintendent Lawrence of the Rock Island at Horton, was in To peka Saturday with a squad of the com pany's men for the purpose of protecting the company's property from the tramps that they say are gathering into the city. The road's officials say tramps are stand ing about their yards and vicinity in gangs of eight and ten. Airs. Henry Spacer and son Robert, of Argentine, are visiting here with Freight Depot Master Wm. Butler of the Santa Fe. General Passenger Agent Geo. T. Nicholson of the Santa Fe, has received an elaborate pass over the "Cross & Crown railroad," the terminal point of which is Heaven. The pass was issued by W. R. Struble, secretary of a Chicago religious organization. The Scranton coal run of the Santa Fe has been started again and it is probable that "Piccadilly" Jack Kelly will pull the train. Santa Fe Engineer James Porter and family of Emporia, are here visiting the Galletly brothers at 321 Klein street. The base ball game at Vine wood" park yesterday between the Capital Citys and the Santa Fes was not a good one. The players on both sides did very poor work. Perhaps they were thinking about the excursion; at least they let the score run to 23 to 13 in favor of the first named club. Shannon of the Capitals made three home runs, which was perhaps the best work of the game. The attendance was very large. TO DOWN BRECKINRIDGE. The Great Meeting at Lexiagton, Ky., This Afternoon. Lexington, Ky., May 14.

Ottawa Town and College Girls in Short Skirts, Play an Interesting Game to a - Delighted Crowd. OTHER STATE NEWS. 'Facile Princeps" Still Says Mrs. Lease Must Die. Ottawa, May 14. An exceedingly unique and interesting game of base ball took place here Saturday afternoon. Unique because the two nines were composed of the best young ladies in town and college, and interesting because girls are always so. The game was played on the college campus and the only man in it was Prof. Potter who umpired. The costumes were quite appropriate. Just short enough to permit perfect free dom of action; long enough to satisfy all scruples of rigid modesty. The college girls were distinguished by handsome yellow sashes gracefully worn over the right shoulder; the young ladies who op posed them were prettily decorated with red ribbons. Throughout there was neither slide nor drive. There was some heavy bat ting on the part of the college girls by Misses Fiester, Easter and King in which a number of two baggers were driven. Miss Bosworth also made a fine hit which sent the horse-hide in a terrific hurry to left field. The town girls also won dis tinction as heavy hitters, Miss Anita An thony going on record with a two-bagger. Miss Belle Brockway edified the good judges of play by her long and accurate throwing, and decidedly interesting were the gymnastics of Miss Leone Brockway trom the pitcher's box. There were no catastrophies of great account; Miss King was kissed in a rude way by a naughty ball in too great hurry to enjoy the feast, but was not in jured. The crowvd was sympathetic and enthusiastic, yelling till a rain was threatened, and some of the town lads became a little boisterous and had to " b called down by President Colegrove, but the whole event was a very pleasant and happy one. The game closed at the end of the first half of the fifth inning, with a score of 26 to 24 in favor of the college club. Time, two hours. 1SJUNCTION AGAINST MISERS. Judge William at Fort Scott Overrule I otlon to DittolTa Injunction. Fort Scott, May 14. A motion to dis solve the injunction granted last fall by Judge Foster against the striking miners at Weir City, was one of the last things heard in the United States court here be fore it adjourned. During the strike in the mines some two or three hundred of the strikers were restrained by an order of the court from making incendiary speeches and using threats or intimida tion or violence of any kind. Judge Williams said in deciding the motion that if the defendants were good law-abiding citizens the order of the court restraining them from committing crime would do them no harm, and if they really wanted to do the things they were ordered not to do they were.fi.ot quiet, law-abiding: citizens and ought to be restrained He therefore overruled the motion to dissolve the restraining order. AFTER THE CHINCH BUGS. Stations With Directors Established in Lyon and Bourbon Counties. Emporia, May 14. Hereafter a chinch bug station will be maintained at the state normal during the summer for the purpose or supplying farmers with inoc ulated bugs, which will spread disease and death when turned loose among their brethren in the field. Prof. Adams of the normal, a graduate of the university, will have charge of the station. He has had experience in the work under the direction of Chancel lor Snow. The county will pay the ex penses ot tne station, which are expected to be $200. I he inoculated bugs and instructions from the university cost nothing. Zn Bourbon County. Fort Scott, May 14. Prof. Snow of the Kansas university, has established a chinch bug infecting laboratory at Ful ton, Bourbon county. It has been placed in charge of J. F. Hall, a student from the university, who has mastered Prof. Snow's idea. The farmers have great faith in the virtue of the method, and are bringiog many bug3 from all direotions. The station is run at an expense of $100 per month, and is supported by a subscrip tion from citizens, mostly merchants. TREADWELL GETS THIRTY YEARS.

He got twenty years for burglarizing Major Hood's residence, three years for larceny, two years for jail-breaking and five years for the original charge of burglarizing the postoffice.

The Missouri state Democratic convention opens here tomorrow. There will probably bo a-tug of war when the committee on resolutions report, as through them comes up the question of indorsing the Cleveland ad ministration, the Chicago platform and free coinage at the rate of 16 to 1. . It is talked among the administration men that they, themselves, will counsel no report on the first proposition, having a desire to maintain peace.
