ATTORNEY HOGE RESIGNS
At the Koquesf of Attorney General Miller.
At tho request of Attorney General Miller
Judge Hoge, of West Virginia, tbo United
States District Attorney fo'r tho District of Co
lumbia, br.s tendered his resignation to tbo
President.
Tho West Virginia Democratic members of
Congress, as well as bis many friends in "Wash
ington, nro indignant at tbo demand for tho
rcsicnatiou of District Attorney Hoge. They
think it n very email piece of business on tho
part of tho Administration to demand tho resig
nation of Judge Hoge before bis term of service
has expired, in view of tbo fact that bis llcpub
lican predecessor, Mr. "Worthlngton, was
allowed to servo out bis full term by l'residcnt
Cleveland. Representative "Wilson, ot West
Virginia, who succeeded Judge Iloco in Con-
i
ress, eaui yesteraay: "ixo one wuo Knows
udco Hoeo will believe for an instant that ho
has not discharged faithfully and Intelllccntly
all the duties of bis office. Any intimations or
allegations to the contrary aro disengenuous
and contemptible. There can be no reason for
his removal at this time, except that his placo
is wanted for some hungry Republican. It is
disgraceful for tbo Administration to attempt
to excuso or Justify its action on the pretext
that Judge Hoge has not made an efficient
and conscientious District Attorney. It is
disgraceful to romovehim before the completion
of his term of office, after Mr. Cleveland's
courtesy in allowing his predecessor to rotaln
his place until bis commission hnd expired."
Representative Alderson, of West Virginia,
said: "I havo known Judge llogo sinco I was a
boy, and I know him to bo an upright and hon
orable gentleman, lie has discharged faithfully
every duty he has over undertaken, and his re
moval now can bo for no other cause than that
bis place io Arant'ed for some Republican."
COAST SURVEY FUNDS.
They HirvoUeon Loosely Handled, But Xo
Losses Discovered.
Investigation by two experts from the Treas
ury Department into tho aftairs of the disburs
ing officer of tho Coast Survey haB shown a con
dition of looseness which led to tbo misuse of
funds. It is stated that in more than one
instance Mr. Parsons, tho disbursing officer,
turned over to a subordinate clerk in the bureau
funds intended to be devoted to tbo payment of
certain bills or expenses, but that tho cleric
failed to follow instructions, and used tbo
money for purposes of bis own. Tho latter
aftcrwardB mado restitution, and nobody lost
anything. These circumstances led to tho
rumors about the defalcation in tbo Coast Sur
vey Bureau which havo been published.

A New Theory on Lianffuase.
After twenty-two years' research, applica

guages to Americans and others, one of our
most prominent teachers boldly and conspic
uously sets forth his ideas before tho public in
a woll considered aiticle that appears on tho

entitles him to a respectful hearing, and how
soever radical may be his views, tliey merit at
leabt attention anu must carry woigut witu
them, if not conviction. Over twenty years
ago the Professor came amongst us quite a
young man and an utter strangor. He imme
diately made his mark iu tho honorable calling

IT IS IiIKEIiY TO PAIIj.
Dofoots in tho Treaty for tho Repression
of tho Slnvo Trade.
Tho members of tho Foreign Isolations Com
mittee of tho Senato 6omo days ago gave their
assent to tho chairman to make a favorable re
port from tho commltcoo upon tho treaty for tho
repression of tho African slavo trade and for
tho restriction of tho importation and salo of
spirituous liquors in African territory. It now
appears that that assent was given upon a mis
impression of tho contents of tho treaty, if not,
in fact, in almost total ignorance of the scope
of this important proposed international com
pact. Sluco then tho attention of these mem
bers has been called to publications in tho news
papers relative to several defects or objection
ablo features in this act of tho Brussels confer
ence, and more than ono member has expressed
serious misgivings as to tho propriety of con
senting to tho ratification of tho treaty. In ad
dition to theso misgivings rolatlvo to tho docu
ment itself, the character of ono of tho
agents of the United States who was clothed
with plenipotentiary power to act for this
Government at tho Brussels conference
having been shown up in such unfavorable
light By newspaper publications, it is doubtful
if favorablo action can bn had on tbo treaty at
tho present session of the Senate. In that event
tho treaty would fail, as far as tho United States
Government is concerned, becauso ono of tho
provisions of the agreement is that ratifications
shall be deposited at Brubsels by or before tho
2d of next July. Then it would probably bo in
order for tho European powers which joined
with this Government in making tho treaty to
either extend tho time for deposit of ratifica
tions or to themselves ratify tho act of tho con
vention, irrespective of tho United States, still
hoping to havo the latter Government como
into tho compact at a later time.
The enforced absence of Senator Sherman
with his dying brother In New York delayed
action upon tho treaty by the Senate.
IS HE HEIZER'S MURDERER?
Tho I'ollco Inclined to Suspect tho Des
perado Siinms.
Officer William J. Kenny, of tbo Sixth Pre
cinct, had Charles Slmms, a notorious negro
highwayman, before the Police Court Friday
afternoon, charged with three cases of highway
robbery. Ho 6tood up an old soldier and took
all ho had. Frederick Hooder was his next
victim and from him ho took $19.50; Henry Mc
Ccney was tho third, who banded up $2.50;
James Simms was another whom ho knocked
senseless with a blackjack and when
ho went through him and found nothing,
took his overcoat. About a year ago Slmms
and his pal, Otto Williams, robbed an old gen
tleman in Judiciary Square. Williams escaped,
but Simms was caught. Judgo Miller sent him
to tho grand jury, but that body failed to find
an indictment against him and he was set free,
and ever since has been robbing right and left.
In tho Police Court Simms wnssent to the Grand
Jury under $9,000 bail. The police are now work
ing on a clue that may implicate this pair in tho
recent horrible robbery and murder of Mr.
Heizor, and are inclined to believe that they
arc on tho right track. This pair of highway
men and desperadoes are not above such a deed,
and would not allow murder to stand in their
way, if money was In sight. It will bo remem
bered that Mr. Heizer stated he could not re
member whether his assailants were white or
black so suddenly was ho garroted, but his
description, as far as he was able to tell, tallies
with the men. Simms shot at and tried to kill
Officer Kimmell in Judielary Square, but tho
officer was too quick. Officer Kenney Is work
ing up the case. Simms was arrested by Officer
Lotines, of tho First Precinct, at tho instance of
Officer Kenney.
A LADY BUFFALO LOOSE.
She Blade Things Lively About tho Smith
sonian for a While.
Ono of the buffalo cows, at tho "Zoo" behind
tho Smithsonian Institute, got out of her pen
yesterday afternoon and mado herself very In
teresting to a largo excursion party of farmers
from Shopherdstown, W. Va. The farmers
thought they know all about cows, and bravely
started in to drive tho big animal back to its
pen. But tho brute bad a snifl! of liberty, and
instead of goine toward tho pen ran directly
away from it, chased by tho farmers, led by ono
weighing over two hundred pounds. They
got Mrs. Buffalo at last cornered,
and advanced boldly toward her expecting
the queen of the plains to meekly submit.
Stattonkeeper Weedon, armed with a pitch
fork, then took charge, and tried to induce tho
buffalo to return, but with a defiant snort, and a
kick of her heels, throwing dirt high in tho
air, the cow mado a charge on tho gang, and
for a time it looked as if there would bo some
ono Injured. Tho big farmers climbed trees,
jumped railings, and ran up against tho Museum
building in their fright, while Mr. Weedon
dropped his pitchfork and ran clear out on ii
street. It was a thrilling scene, and
perhaps the most excited spectators of
it all were the other buffalos who were
bellowing and rushing around their pens in a
violent manner. After chasing all of tho bravo
farmers out of the lot the animal quietly walked
to Its pen and entered as unconcerned as if
nothinc unusual had happened. When she did
this anil tho gate was secured tho farmers con
gregated together and told how it should havo
been accomplished, but wasn't, and Mr. Weedon
returned from B street easy and free. The ex
citement lasted about two hours and there were
about 3,000 people to witness tho sight.

Perfect in All of Its Details.
In noticing the many marked improvements
and enterprises that are being doveloped daily in
our great city, none is more worthy of mention,
than tho model oyster and chop liouso opened
last evening'at 520 Tenth street northwest by
Mr. and Mrs. Edward Fick. In order to give
an interesting and definite account of this now
establishment it is well to mention that Mr.
Fick has been in tbo oyster business since he
was eighteen years of age, giving him an ex
perience of twenty-fivo years. It is needless to
say that thiB long experience has enabled him
to servo this popular fish in overy stylo
immaginable. and to please tho most fastidious
epicurean. Tho establishment, now occupied
haB been remodeled and equipped with all tho
modern improvements requisite for conducting
a first-class ladles' and geutlomen'B oyster chop
house. Much tasto ha6 been displayed by Mrs.
Fick in giving tho premises a domestic finishing
touch that make ono feel that they are sur
rounded by all tho comforts of homo on en
tering tho Jadies' or gentlemens' apartments.
Tho first room, on entering from the streot, is
exclusively for gentlemen, and is finished in
hard wood, with everything to cor
respond. On tbo left, on entering
is tho handsome marble-top raw counter (as it
Is called) where oysters of every size and kind
is served on tho half-shell or by tho plato.
Handsome oak tables, seating four porsons,
and trimmed with glittering china and silver
ware are artistically arranged in this rooin,where
oysters in overy conceivable stylo is served, as
woll as other eatables too numerous to mention,
served by experienced and polito waiters.
Adjoining tho gentleman's dining-room is tho
dining-room for ladies, reached from tho
street by a private entrance, making
it as secluded as one could desire.
This apaitment is handsomely carpeted, having
laco curtains at tho windows, and tho tables and
tableware corresponding with that of tho gen
tlemon's dining-room. In tho rear of tho dining-rooms,
and on the samo lloor, is tho model
kitchen, presided over by Mr. William Wiu
fleld, of Philadelphia, who enjoys a reputation
second to none as a conuolsseur on serving
oysters. They make a specialty of their salads
and chops, for which they havo an envied repu
tation. They are going to inaugurate what
will bo kuown as a noon lunch, from 13
to 2 P. M., enabling clerks and the public
generally to secure an excellent lunch for a
moderate sum, which no doubt will prove quite
popular. On Sundays tho houso will bo opeu
from 4 P. M. to 13. The proprietors desire it
to bo known that their oyster houso at tho cor
ner of Sixth aud C streets northwest will con
tinue to do business at the old stand, It is not
necessary to sav that their now enterprise will
be a success. Hundreds thronged tho dining
rooms last eyeniug.
