CHAT OF THE CORRIDORS. i
The body-bearers at Mrs. Harrison's funeral
in Washington on Thursday, Oct. 27, were em
ployes at the Executive Mansion, and were
Sergeant Ioeffler, Messrs. Turner, Dubois, Keu
ney, Brickcr, Harrie, Lewis, and Hollinberger.
Several members of the Diplomatic Corps
who attended the dedication ceremonies of the
Columbian Exhibition at Chicago, and who re
turned to Washington last week, were sufferers
&t-tbo hands of Encak-thieves. Marquis Im
perial!, Secretary of the Italian Legation, lost
$55 in cash, a pair of diamond stuos, a pearl
pin, and the jeweled insignia of tho several
Orders with which be has been decorated. One
of the ladies lost a Taluablo pocket-book, con
taining &S5 hi money and two or three pieces
of diamond jewelrv.
The Department of tat has received ad
rices from 3Iadrid. Spain, by mail, which give
an interesting account of the prescutxtion of
tbe invitation from the Congress of the TJnitod
States to the Queen of Spain and the descend
ants of Columbus, to attend tbe World's Colum
bian Exposition at Chicago. The Queen ex
pressed her gratification at the kindness of our
Congress in honoring her with an invitation,
and expressed great regret that the Constitu
tion of Spain prohibited her from attending
the Fair in person, but she stated that she
would send a representative.
An interesting laudlord-and-lenant case was
tried before Justice of the Peace Mills last week,
and decision reserved. This was the case of tho
Woman's Baptist Home against Margaret Mer
rill, brought to recover possession of the room
occupied by defendant at the Home. Mrs. Mer
rill is an old Army .Nurse, 70 years of age and
& cripple, who, having purchased a life mem
bership, claims she is entitled to being cared for
at the Home, with the use of a room. The
ladies of the Home claim that Mrs. Merrill has
forfeited her rights by insubordination.
Ex-Secretary of State Blaine and his family
returned to Washington last week from Maine,
irliere they spent the Summer, and are at tboir
iome on Lafayette Square, near tho White
House. Shortly after the arrival of the
Bi nines Postmaster-General Wanamaker called
ftt the bonse and spent an hour with the ex
4t Secretary of State. When seen alterward by a
reporter the Posttnnster-Gcneral said he found
Mr. Blaine very well, with tho old shine iu his
eya and the well-known ring iu his voice.
Both he and Mrs. Blaine, who are suffering
from their own recent bereavements, keenly
feel and plainly manifest their sympathy with
tho President, and their tender and tearful in
quiries showed a depth of feeling that none
Warren P. Watrons, a real estate and noto
broker of Washington, was arrested last week
for wholsale forgery. It appears that Watrons
was in the habit oTdopositing notes with an P
street baukcr and getting money on them.
Theso notes wcro said to have been given him
by Department employes, and he would indorse
them and get the money. Tho banker finally
became suspicious, went to somo of tho alleged
drawers of tho notes, who repudiated them and
said they wcro forgeries. The notos Tanged in
value from $2.1 to $50, and there was a suffi
cient number of them to bring the amount of
money obtained up to $509. When taxed with
the forgeries by the banker, Watrous acknowl
edged them, and promised to do bsltcr if Jio
was not nrosccuted.
Tho New York papers wcro claiming last
week that a number of Washington nogroos
wero being colonized in tho metropolis for
political pnrposes. This report seems to be
entirely without foundation, as a canvass of
the colored districts of the city, from where
theso men would likely be taken for such a
scheme, showed that none wero missing.
Several promiuent negro politicians who wcro
interviewed on the subject stated that it was a
fake, and that no Washington men had gone to
New York on such a scheme. Col. Perry Car
son, the big colored politician of tho District,
is out in Indiana helping to getvotes for Harri
son from his colored brethren, and he has noth
ing to do with this kind of politics, eo that it ia
clearly a libel on the nogro population of
President Harrison laid aside his great sor
row on Wednesday, Oct.2G, long enough to con
sider the cases of Marshall Wheeler and Lee
Sing, the latter a Chinaman, two convicts, who
have been reported as being at the point of death,
tho former in the York County (S. C.) Jnil.tiud
tbe latter in tho Alhauy (N. Y.) Penitentiary.
Wheeler was convicted iu South Carolina of
violating Internal Revenue laws and sentenced
Aug. 18, 1S92, to six months' imprisonment.
He is suffering from typhoid fever, and it is
represented to the President that he will surely
die unless ho has the beneCt of purer air than
lie can get iu his prison cell. Lee Sing is dying
from cancer and isiu need of immediate Toliof.
Their cases appealed particularly to tho Presi
dent in his own affliction, and ho ordered par
dons to be issued in both cases.
Chief-Engineer George W. Baird. U. S. tf.,
who is at present attached to the U. S. S. Dol
phiD, has been spending a few days in Wash
ington. Ho recently passed an examination
for promotion from tho grade of Passed Assist
ant Engineer to that which he now holds with
great credit, and has been allowed a few day3
for recreation. Chief-Engineer Baird was for
some time AssistantSuperintendcntof tho State,
War, and 2savy Department Building, during
which time most of tho Tecent improvements
were introduced by him. Among theso are tho
elcctric-lightitig plant and tho design of the
water-works plant and pumping-statiou at Hot
Springe, Ark. A number of the modern appli
ances on board ship in connection with modern
machinery are also his invention. He entered
the .Navy in Septembofj 1SG2, as Acting Third
Tho banner of tbe Columbia Democratic
Club, which bears the names and portraits of
Cleveland and Stevenson, and which was
stretched across Pennsylvania avenue between
Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets, was taken
down on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at the suggestion of
many prominent Democrats of Washington.
This was done because the funeral cortege of
Mrs. Harrison, in its progress from tho Whito
House to the depot, passed along Pennsyl
vania avenue, and it was thought by tho mem
bers of the club that it would be a mark of
kindly consideration to remove tho banner un
til after Mrs. Harrison's body had left Wash
ington for Indianapolis. The thoughtfulncss
and feeling which prompted the club to remove
their banner, under the circumstances, wore
the subject of very favorablo comment by all
parties in Washington.
It may happen that the Governraont will
have to ccme to the rescue of Col. Nichofs
Smith, United States Consul at Thrco Rivers,
Province of Quebec, Canada. Somo time ago
Col. Smith made a report about tho sanitary
condition of Thrco Rivers to tho State Depart
ment, which has so aroused tho Canadians of
that city that bo aud his family have been sub
jected to gross outrages. Col. Smith is at
present suffering from pneumonia, the result of
a cold caused by the breaking of the windowa
of his house when it was mobbed because of
bis report on the city's sanitation. His family
are abused aud insulted when they appear on
thoEtreet, and every indignity is offered them
by the irato Canadians. They havo demanded
tho recall of Col. Smith and are pressing it
hard. Our Government will have to either re
call him or give him protection, as his life is
Baid to bo in danger.
The officers of the law are looking for a tery
slippery crooked man, who follows the races
aud indulges in questiouabla tricks, but who
was beateii at his own game one day last week.
On Wednesday, Oct, 20, this well-known char
acter was at the race track 'at .Beuuing's, and
had in his possession n paid ticket, which he
claimed to havo found, which had won $300,
but being eo well known to tho bookmakers,
he was afraid to present it himself for payment,
and gave it to a confederate, who collected the
sum, but who failed to give the sharp his pro
portion of the money. The crooked fellow
kicked quite hard, but was afraid to bring tho
matter to the attention of the police for fear
they would arrest him on some'old charge, as
well as for stealing the ticket which drew the
$300. Bo he lost all, and when the actual owner
of the ticket made known his loss, the crook
had to skip for fear of arrest, and without any
of tbe proceeds of his light-fingered work.
Postmaster-General Wanamaker on Wednes
day, Oct. 2G, executed nn agreement with tba
Pneumatic Transit Company of New Jeraey,
by which the latter covenants to lay at its own
expense a line of two parallel iron pneumatic
tubes of an inside diameter of ilx and ene
eighth inches for the transit of mails feetwaa
sub postoffices and. tbe main post office, on
Chesttut street, below Fourth, In the city of
Philadelphia. The company further agree tt
bear the entiro cost of maintaining and operat
ing the saino for a'poriod of one year; to pay
all damages to these buildings or other property
owned by the United States caused b- the lay
ing of these tubes, and to turn them over to the
Postoflico Department for tho exclusivo nso of
the Philadelphia Postoflico for a period of one
year after completion of such practical tests as
tho Postmaster at Philadelphia or the Postmaster-General
may direct, without cost of any
character whatovor to tho United States.
Senator David B.Hill, of tfow York, arrived
in Washington on Wednesday morning, Oct
2G, accompaniod by Gen. Farnsworth. He was
driven at. once to tho Arlington Hotel, and
when ho entered the breakfast room, MnWayno
Mac Yeagh, ex-Attorney-Gcueral-of tho United
States, was sitting at tho table reading Senator
Hill's speech of tho evening before delivered
in Tammany Hall, Now York, in which ho ex
pressed his disgust at now political couvorts.
Ho snt down nearly facing the ox-Attorney.
General, but did notspeak, and Mr. Mac Vcagh
soon finished his meal and loft tho room. Mr.
Hill would not talk politics, and said his
speech, which was printed iu tho morning
papers, contained all ho had to say on that sub
ject. Ho said that he did not know Mr. Mac
Veagh, and intimated that ho did not wish to
mako his acquaintance. Ho expressed deep
sympathy for President Harrison in his be
reavement. He ouly remained in Washington
a short time, leaving for Lynchburg, Ya.
DIPLOMATS AT THE FAIR.
They Praise tho Magnificence of 1 heir Train
and tlio "Wonders of Chicago.
The special train which carried tho Diplo
matic Corps from Washington to Chicago and
back again was one of the finest ever run be
tween tho two cities, and the members of tho
corps expressed themselves in tho most en
thusiastic manner respecting their trip and
what they saw on the shores of the great lakes.
Baron Fava. tho Italian Minister, who is
Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, said: "I never
saw such maguificenco before, except in tho
train which my King occupies when ho travels
in Italy. For tho people there is nothing liko
it anywhere else in tho world. We appreciate
tho enterprise and ingenuity that work such
results, however, and our King has bestowed a
title of honor upon Mr. Pullman in recognition
of his achievements. As to tho World's Fair,
it far surpasses my imagination of what might
be. Such stupendous and artistic results aro
simply wonderful. Tho appearance of the host
within the building was inspiring and. unpar
alleled." M. De Struve, the Russian Minister, conld
find no words, ho said, in which to adequately
express himself. The management of tho rail
road, no less than the gorgeousness of tho
trains, impressed him. "It is not only that
we are carried in such handsome, coaches,
but the cafe (dining-car) service is something
to admire. Nothing ia lacking. I can only
say that I am overwhelmed by the exporionco
at Chicago. Surely its like was never ecoh be
fore." Senor De Lome, the Spanish Minister, said
that tiie magnitudoot the Fair did not surprise
him. "We aro accustomed to big things, you
know. But everything was done bo easily and
in such perfect order. I can't understand it all.
The Fair certainly promises to bo all that is
Mr. Le Ghait, Belgian Minisler,,sumraed it
all tip in tho phrase "Everything was worthy
The Hon. Mr. Herbert, tho British Chargc
d'Affaires and Secretary of Legation, said that
probably never boforo in the history of the
world had so many people been gathered to
gether under cover as wero in tho Manufact
urers Building Friday. "And certainly I
never expect to sco so many again. The, dar
ing imagination that could conceive and the
dauntless spirit that could construct eucu a
building aro truly American."
China was represented by Pung Kwang Yu,
First Secretary of Legation. Ho admitted
that Oriental magnificence found its truest
manifestation iu tho laud of the Occident, and
that what ho saw iu Chicago far surpassed tho
wildest vision of far-off India.
Before leaving the train tltc diplomats agreed
upon the draft of a note to bo sent to tho.Secre
tary of State, by Baron Fava, expressing, their
appreciation of the delightful manner in which
they had been transported to Chicago and
back, and entertained while in that city. Tho
Secretary will be asked to convey to tho mem
bers of tiie committee iu charge of their enter
tainment the warmest thanks of the visitors.
MOURNING IN SOCIETY. .1,
Vice-President Morton and his wife. and the
members of the Cabinet and their wives1, being
the official family of President Harrisonwill,
it is generally understood, go into mourning
for Mrs. Harrison, and will therefore with
draw from all participation iu social events
for the period of one mouth, as thero seems
to be no other way Tor them to publicly ex
press their sense of personal loss aud sym
pathy with the great bereavement which has
come to the Executive of the Nation. When
this subject was under discussion last week,
Mrs. Harrison's own conduct, when the sad
events of two Winters ago brought desoliition
to the homes of Secretaries Tracy, Window
and Blaine, quickly came to the mind of every
one. She at this lime did all that conld havo
possibly been done or suggested, but more than
that, her tender and thoughtful consideration
for each individual found manifestation in
every possible way. Her part in assuaging the
sorrows of the families of Secretaries Blaine,
Tracy and Wiudom will always bo referred to
as a model of womanly kindness. The ell'ect
of Mrs. Harrison's death upon general society
in Washington will bo very marked. It came
at a quiet season; but if it had come at any
other period of tho year, it would undoubtedly
have been observed by similar expressions of
POLYGAMY ON THE WANE,
Tho Annual llc-port of Gov. Thomas, of Utah
Arthur H. Thomas, the Governor of Utah, in
his annual report to the Secretary of the In
terior, says that polygamy in tho Territory is
on the decline. Iu his report of last year tho
Governor stated that the Mormons were then
obeying the laws as to polygamy, and ho now
says that he knows of nothing which has hap
pened during tho year to lead him to qualify
Ho says ho docs not believe that any polyga
mous marriages have taken place during the
year with the consent or permission of tho Mor
mon leaders, and it is his conviction tljat thero
is a sincere intention on tho part of the Mor
mon people not to approve or sanction polyga
mous marriages in the future.
In regard to the admission of Utah as a State
the Governor says: "It is ray opinion, having
due consideration for the wishes aud feelings
of all, that between tho two great elements of
tbe population, Mormon aud non-Mormon, the
sympathy of feeling and harmony of purpose
does not exist which is so essential to, tho pros
perity and happiness of tho people under State
hood. Yet it would he an act unworthy the
justice of a great Government to turn u deaf
ear to the appeal of the men who iu Utah havo
always upheld its authority aud obeyed tho
HARD BLOW FOR POLICY WRITERS.
Tho Police Court of Washington baa been
trying the case of three policy backers for the
past week, and on Wednesday, Oct. 2G, the case
came to an abrupt ending, by tho attorneys for
the defendants withdrawing tho former plea of
not guilty and substituting a plea of guilty,
which was at once done, and the jury were
instructed to bring iu a verdict in accordance
with tho plea. The Assistant Dibtrict At
torney then told the court that ho had been
instructed by tbe District Attorney to ask the
court to impose a fine in the cases oiKiug and
Baldwin, and to suspend a jail sentence against
Horback, the three men on trial. In accord
ance with this desire of the District Attorney,
Judge .Miller fined King aud Baldwin $125
each and costs, and suspended the sentence of
six months in jail against Horback. This wai
done because the District Attorney believed
that this would be tbe best plan to pursuo in
the interest of the public, and that the end of
justice would be better subserved by such a
course. Tbe Assistant District Attorney then
preferred charges against Detectives Suther
land and Policeman Orealy of promoting tbe
game of policy by guaranteeing police protec
tion to the policy backers. It is understood
that Horback has turned informer against
thece officers of the law, and they wiil be tried
in a abort time. In the meantime both officers
have bean suspended, and are out on bail.
AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
Simple Services Over Mrs. Hm-rlson's Re
mains in Washington.
The funeral services over Mrs. Harrison's
remains at tho White House on Thursdny
morning, Oct. 27, wero simple yet very impres
sive. There was an entiro absence of anything
resembling ceremony, but of tears and genuine
heartfelt sympathy there was no lack. Tho
friends of tho President's family who wero to
bo present began to assemblo nt tho Mansion
shortly after 9 o'clock, and they wero immedi
ately ushered into tho East Boom, the largest
ono in tho house. Tho casket was covered
with tho moGt beautiful flowers. Mm. Harri
son's favorite flowers were, during her lifotimo,
orchids, chry.tanthcmunis, and rosen, and with
theso tiie casket was literally covered as by a
mound. Each floral pieco rivalod tho other in
beauty, and nearly all were in part composed
of orchids, which tho dead woman painted so
often aud took so much delight in. At tho
head and foot or the casket large palm treos
wero placed. Scats were arranged on the east
and west sides, while tho c3ket was placod in
the center of the room.
As the hour for tho services drew near a large
number of persons of prominence entered the
,room, and mpst of them.gecured seats. Among
theso was ex-Sccrclary of Stato Blaine, who
ciuno in unobtrusively aud sat beside Senator
Proctor, of Vermont, and just back of the row
of chnir3 occupied by the Justices of the Su
promo Court. Promptly at 30 o'clock the pall
bearers marched into tho room, consisting of
Vice-President Morton, Secretary of Statu John
W. Foster, Secretary of War Elkins, Attorney
General Miller, Secretary of the JNTavy Tracy,
Postniastor-Gencral Wanamaker, Secretary of
Agriculture Husk, and Secretary of the Interior
Noble. Immediately afterward the President
entored tho room with his daughter, Mrs. Mc
Keo, on his arm, and tho 300 peoplo immedi
,ately aroso to their feet and remained standing
until Gen. Harrison and all the family which
followed him, had takon seats.
Eev. Dr. Hamlin, Pastor of the Church of
tho Covenant, opened tho services by reciting
"Let not your heart be troubled; yo believe
in God. beliovo also in mo." etc. Bov. Dr.
Bartlctt, Pastor of the Now York Avenue Pres
byterian Church, assisted in conducting the
services. The choir of St. John's Episcopal
Chursh. which is principally composed of male
voices, and an organ, wero in an adjoining.
room, and rendored "Aiuclo with Me," ".beau,
Kindly Light," etc. After tho sorvices were
concluded tho floral ollbrings wero removed,
and the body-bearers, consisting of eight em
ployes of the Executive Mansion, took up the
casket, and, following tho pall-bearers, inarched
out to tho north portico, whero the hcarao was
standing, the pall-bearers forming in two linos
while tho "body was being placed iu the hearse.
Tho hearse then moved out, and the carriages
were quickly filled, and tho sad procession
started for tho depot of the Baltimore & Poto
mac Railway, along Pennsylvania avenue.
Thero wore crowds of people on the streets,
who stood and gazed with sorrow upon the
black hearse which contained all that was left
of ono who was universally honored and loved
All arrangements wero completed when tho
funeral cortege arrived at the depot. Tho
casket was placod on a cloth-covored dais in
the ob3orvation-car, tho other cars of the train
being tho dining-car Continental, compartment
cars Narcissus and Ideal, and the Pullman car
Wild wood tho lattor car boitig occupied by
the President and his family and a baggogo
car. Tho train left tho station at 11:40 a. m., and
slowly drew out, beitig watched along tho line
of tho road by crowds of peoplo, who uncov
ered their heads whilo the train passed. Tho
floral offerings were bo numerous that there
was not room for them in tho observation-car,
where the body was resting, and thoy bad to
be placed in the baggage-car. It was one of
tho most impressive funerals over soen in
GEN. FLAGLER'S REPORT,
Something Interesting About UIg Gnna and
Gen. Daniel W. Flagler, Chiof of Ordnance,
United States Army, in his annual report re
cently submitted to tho Secretary of War, has
somo very interesting things to say regarding
big guns and smokeless powder.
Tho seacoast-gun factory at tho Watertown
Arsenal has been greatly improved, but not
completed. Tho pressing needs of the .service
for carriages, tho production of which is largely
in arrears, demands that the equipment of this
plant ho pushed to completion as early as prac
ticable. The test of tho 10 and 12-inch-type guna h
still in progress, owiug to tho groat delays in
procuring powders that fulfill contract require
ments. The tests of the French and Gorman
smokeless powdors show that they are well
adapted for use with heavy guns, the Gorman
powder having tho advantage, giving as good
velocity as tho French with a somewhat loss
charge. Tho German powder has the further
marked advantage that it 13 readily mado up
into cartridges, whilo much time is required
for putting up tho French powder.
Tho Department will havo completed at the
end of tho calendar year J5 8-inch, eight 10
inch, and three 12-Inch seacoast guns, which
will be available for issue to the servico as soon
as carriages aro provided for them.
The 30-inch gun bos h'eeif tested and the 12
inch is now ready. The accuracy of the new
guns is great, especially that of tho 8-inch

CENSUS FIGURES ATTACKED.
A Charge that the Cramp Shipyard was
Omitted from the bulletin.
Tho attention of Henry W. Cramp, of tho
ship-building firm of Cramp's Sons, was re
cently called to tho report of tho ship-building
industry of Philadelphia, which forms a por
tion of a roccnt census bulletin of manufac
tures in Philadelphia. It has been charged by
Congressman Euybtim, Lorin Blodgett, David
Thompson, and others, that tho figures of this
census havo been manipulated so that Phila
delphia has been relegated to third place, in
stead of. occupyinc her proper -position as the
leading manufacturing city of the country.
Mr. Cramp states that the figures forwarded
to Washington by his firm alone far exceeded
tho totalg published, and that they niU9t cor
tainly havo boon ignored in preparing the re
ports. Tho list prepared by the special asent
containing the questions that the firm were to
answer is now in tho possession of Henry W.
Cramp, having been returned to him from
Washington. Tho reports showed that during
that year alone six vessels were built, with a
total val uo of $3,3 10,000. Thero was also $280,-
000 worth of repair work done in 1890, making
the grand total of 53,620,000. In addition to
this tho value of tho plant was set down at
The questions submitted to tho firm were
very numerous, and many of them it was found
impossible to answer. It is believed the return
Was thrown out because theso questions were
Since tho return of tho list the firm has been
again asked to furnish the answers, but has
failed to do bo becauso of uttor inability to
Many of the questions would require for an
swer a complete exposuro of private business,
and this, they contend, they have no right to
bo asked to disclose.
AmoiiK other things, they are asked to state
from what States the different kinds of lumber
used aro secured. This is beyond thoir power
to state, as tho material i3 bought without ques
tion as to where it was grown.
Hon. Eobort P. Porter, Superintendent of tho
Census, said, in rofereuce to the above report,
that "tho industrial statistic; of Philadelphia,
as given out by the Census Oilice, were collected
by Charles Hebcr Clark, Secretary of the 3fan
uiacturora' Club of Philadelphia and Editor of
the Textile Jlecord. He is a man of high ability
aud character, and his work has the support of
tho manufacturers of that city. A man named
Thompson who was discharged for incompe
tency and for attempting to " stuff" the ro
turns of Philadelphia, is instigating this at
tack. I have now soveral of Thompson's men
under indictment for forgery in making falso
".Not being at the office, I am unable to ex
pain Cramp's statement, but suppose that he baa
either failed or refused to give in his returns,
or that the statistics of shipbuilding have been
reserved for tho special report on that subject.
1 am certain nothing has been omitted inten
tionally, and am likewise certain that the
industrial statistics of Philadelphia have been
carefully collected, and that tho work will
stand fair criticism of any kind. A growth
such as that shown in Philadelphia ought to be
satisfactory, without padding."
AN OLD LANDMARK GONE,
Historic "Wlllard Hall Destroyed by I'lames
After a Stubborn Fight.
Old Willard Hall, on F stroor, between Four
teenth and Fifteenth streets northwest, was
burned put on tho voning of Thursday. Oct
27. between 6:20 and 8 o'clock. A serious and
extensive fire was averted by the extraor
dinary exertions of tho fire department. The
iiatnea wero discovered after they had gained
considerable headway by Capt. Cunningham,
who at once notified the hotel people. The
employes of the hotel had been instructed in a
fire-drill, and they were at once put into serv
ico, and, assisted by citizens, they put the hotel
hoso in operatiou, while others formed a bucket
The flames wore burning fiercely under and
about tho stage in the hall when these meas
ures were perfected, and every effort was made
to put out tho fire. A general alarm was turned
iu and the entire fire department was soon at
the hall. It was feared that the adjoining build
ings on F street would catch fire, as well as the
big hotel of tho same name as the hall would
bo consumed, as it is a very old building and
has nana of the modern fire-proof appliances,
and is built around the hall on two sides, only
being-separated from it by narrow alleys.
Tho firemen worked heroically, however,
and confined tho flames within the walls of
the old hull, which appeared to be heated to a
rod-hot heat from tho outside, filling the sur
rounding chilly air with a genial warmth.
After a long fight tho flames wero subdued,
but not until the interior of the hall had been
gutted, and the entire premises, together with
the basement of Willard's Hotel, bad been sub
merged with Potomac Biver water.
The store-rooms of Willard's Hotel were
immediately under the hall, and were stored
with about $10,000 worth of provisions
aud groceries, aud it is thought great damage
has been done, although uo estimate can be
made until the place is inspected uy the under
writers. The goods are insured to their full
Tho hall has not been nsed for 3ome time,
and the origin of the fire is a mystery. It is
thought that tho fire originated either in the
hotel kitchen or laundry, or the carpentersbop,
all of which aro iu close proximity to the hall.
Tho damage will probably reach $20,000,
mostly covered by insurance. Tho hall was
built early in the present century, and was used
as a church for sometime, but was afterward
turuod into a theater.
MAINE'S GOVERNOR IN WASHINGTON.
Gen. Edwin C. Burleigh, Governor of the
State of Maine, was in Washington last week,
accompanied by his official otaff and others of
the Pino Tree State. They stopped at Wil
lard's Hotel and went sightseeiug. They did
not remaiu at tho Capital very long, but took
truin for home after thoroughly doing the city.
The persons in the party were Gov. Edwin C.

ARMY AND NAVY.
Brig.-Gen. Martin D. Hardin, U. S. Army,
retired was married to Miss Amelia McLaugh
lin, the daughter of a wealthy merchant of
Chicago, in that city on Monday, Oct. 24. The
ceremony was performed by Cardinal Gibbous.
Gen. Hardin graduated from thu Military
Academy in 1859, and at the breaking out of
tho war was a First Lieutenant of tho 3d Art.
In July, 1S62, ho was promoted Licutenaut
Colonel of the 12th Pa. Beserves, and in Sep
tember, 1S62, wasmade Colonel of the regiment.
He became a Brigadier-General in July, 186-1,
nnd was mustered out of the volunteer service
iu I860, and went back into theBcguIar Army
as Major of the 43d Inf. Ho was transferred to
tho 1st Inf. in 1862, and was retired from active
servico as Brigadier-General, Dec. 15, 1870, be
cause of'loss of left arm and wounds received
in lino of duty.
Mj. Sinclair, 2d Art., commanding at Fort
Warren, Boston Harbor, Mass.. and a detective
named Peck aro iu trouble. They arrested one
Charles M. Pierco for alleged desertion from
the Army, but aftor keeping him in jail 19 days
allowed jii in to go. Pierco claims that he is a
patriot of unblemished reputation, and has
brought suit against Mnj. Sinclair and Peck for
false imprisonment. He wants $1,300 for each
day that he was restrained of his liberty.
Gen. Grocly, Chief Signal Officer of tho Army,
in his annual report recommends that when
the position of Chief Signal Oflicer become
vacant the Chief of the Corps should thereafter
be a Colonel, with tire Asaittant Chief, oae
with tbe grade of Lieuteuant-Colonol, and the
other with tbe grade ef Majer, and that the
office of tb two Llenteuaut b abolished.
Such an arrangement, he say, would decrease
the number of officers by one and reduce tht
expenses several thousand dollar annually.
CHANGING DISTRICT NAMES.
Some of tho Odoriferous Appellation will not
be round on tho Xotv Maps.
It wa? decided by iho District of Coin robin
authorities last week that a commission should
bo appointed to revise tho geographic names
which havo becomo attached to tho bills, val
leys, streams, streets, and alleys of the 10-milo
squnro of ground set apart for tho National
Capital, and bring order out of chaos, and do
away with some of tho unpleasant-sounding
names at present attached to somo of them.
Somo of these alloys are a disgrace to the com
munity; being known by such appellations &3
Louse, Pig, Tinctip, Fighting, etc.
The Chief of the Coast Survey has appointed
as a member of this Commission Mr. B. F. Co
lonna; tho DistrictCommissionersappotnted Mr.
W. P. Richards, of tho Engineer's Dopar ment,
nnd tho President of the Board of Geographic
Names appointed Prof. Otis G. Mason, of tho
Smithsonian Institution, to act as said Commis
sion. Tho nccc33ity for taking this step to rceulate
the geographical naming of tho City of Wash
ington and its suburbs has been made apparent
iu tho course of tho work on a map of tho Dis
trict, which is in course of preparation by the
Coast Survey. This map will bo a magnificent
work, and on a much larger scale than any
other heretofore made. Each square mile will
beoutlinod upon a single sheet, so that tho map
will bo 100 sheets in aizo, and will cover more
spaco than tho largest theatrical poster. Tbe
map-makers wore much puzzled to settle upon
tho names for various pnrtrf of the District, as
they found that many hills, streams, and roads
wero known by two or three names, which
havo becomo attached to them through some in
cident or person who has figured at some time
in local history, while others lack appropriate
It will be tho duties of thi3 Commission to
remedy this confusion, but thoy will not blot
out any geographic title which is endeared to
the inhabitants. Thoy will look into local his
tory where tho names bolong to some old land
mark, find out how they originated, and tho
ono which is found to bo most appropriate will
be adopted. The names of early settlers and of
ovents which have been turned to geographi
cal use will receive due consideration. Somo
of those names, such as Louse alley, can easily
bo dropped and never missed. The Commission
will be glad to receive suggestions which will
help in solving problems of prccedeuco and fit
ness which thoy are now called on to solve for
MiS3 nattio Zulime Whitney, granddaughter
of Mrs. Myra Clark Gaine3, and Mr. Milo C.
Summers, of Illinois, a clerk in the Surgeon
General's Office, War Department, were mar
ried at tho Epiphany Church in Washington,
on Wednesday evening, Oct. 26. Misa.Whitney
is tho youngest grandchild or the celebrated
Mrs. Gaines, widow of Gen. Gaines, who so
long and plnckily fought for big possessions
which she claimed in" Now Orleans, at last
gaining her suit, but not living to reap her
reward. The church was crowded with a fash
ionable audience, and the young couple wero
attended to the altar by four bridesmaids and
four groomsmen. Tho bride 13 one of the
handsomest young ladies in Washington.
Mis3 -Katharine Heaton Oflloy and Lieut. Ben
Hebard Fuller, T7. S. Marine Corps, were marriod
on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at St. John's Church,

wero a large number of prominent officials and
Army and Navy people present.

Count ailtkiewicz Gives Bond and HJs Goods
Tho case of Julian Wall, the Washington
agent of R, J. Horner, of New Tork, against
Count Eugene D. Mitkiewicz and others, came
up for hearing this morning beforo Judge
Bradley in the Circuit Court upon a motion of
the defendant, Mitkiewicz, for a return of the
property recently seized by tho Marshal under
a writ of replevin. Tho plaintiff wa3 repre
sented by H. M. Westfall, the local attorney,
and also by Mr. Burke, of Brooklyn. The
Count was represented by Clarence A. Branden
burg and Bobort Cristy. After argument the
court granted the motion of the defendant's
attorneys and passed an order directing the
Marshal to return to the Count the furniture
seized upon his giving bond, with surety to be
approved by the court. The bond will be fur
nished. Mitkiewicz says, sometime during the
It is understood that Judge Bradley's decision
in thi3 suit is based on tho legal proposition
that personal property cannot be replevined by
a person who is unable to prove ownership in
it. Mr. Horner should therefore have been the
plaintiff instead of his agent, Mr. Wall.
THE U. V. U. TAKES A HAND,
Capt. W. H. Michael, Commander of the De
partment of the Potomac Union Veterans'
Union, la3t week issued an order, in which,
after reciting the objects of the organization,
he drifts into politico quite extensively, saying:
"It is the duty, theroforo, of your Depart
ment Commander, as ho understands his obli
gations, to call your attention to the fact that
veterans are on tho eve of a great battle, in
volving their good name, their horior and
their most sacred rights. I refer to the elec
tion to take place on tho 8th day of November
next. On that day will bo decided who shall
be President for the next four years. On that
day will bo decided whether the United States
Senate and House of Representatives shall be
Bcpublican or Democratic What does this
mean to the veterans who saved tho Union ?"
Ho then makes reference to IiLr. Harrison's
war record, to Mr. Cleveland's pension vetoes,
etc., and closes by saying: "If the veterans
would help themselves and help each other,
they must vote for their comrade, who stood
with them at tho front, and with the party that
has always been the Union soldier and sailor's
On Thursday afternoon, Oct. 27, considerable
speculation was indulged in by citizens of
Washington at the appearance of an immenso
balloon looming up in the clouds across the
Potomac in Virginia, and everybody wanted to
know if there were people in it, its size being
thought sufficient to carry several persons. It
was the first of a series of experimental ascen
sions which aro to be made by the rainmakers
of the Agricultural Department from the Gov
ernment reservation at Fort Myer.
The balloon carried two passengers Prof.H.
A. Hazen, of the Weather Bureau, and Mr. John
T. Ellis, of the Agricultural Department, who
had charge of tho rainfall experiments for some
months in Texas last year. The object of the
ascent was to test the relative humidity of the
upper air strata, and the trip was a very suc
The start was mado a little Bfter 3 o'clock,
and tho balloon remained aloft for three hours,
attaining a maximum altitude of botween 0,000
and 10,000 feet, with a minimum temperature
of 13 Fahrenheit, and lauding seven miles
from Fort Myer, where it had left the earth.
The cloud strata stood at 14, and was frozen,
of courso. and oven the surrounding clear air
was completely saturated, though the upper
region was found to bo very dry. Tho differ
ence in temperature of 40 between the high
est elevation and the surface of tho earth was
Forty-four Acres of Floor Space.
From a material point of view the Manufac
tures Building is one of the most interesting
structures in the world. In its construction
17,000,000 feet of lumber, or about 1,100 acres
of average Micbigau piue trees, were used. In
the floor alone are 7,000,000 feet of lumber.
The iron and steel used in it would build two
Brooklyn bridges. The Bomans thought they
had reached the limit when the Coliseum,
with seats or 80.000 persons, was built. Four
Coliseums could be put on the floor of Mannfac
turers' Hall. It is possible, but not desirable,
to seat 300,000 persons in this building. In its
roof are 11 acres of skylights and 40 carloida of
window-glass. Including the galleries tbe
structure famishes 44 acres of floor space.
