DISTRICT GOVERNMENT.
The Commissioners have refused to appoint
a jury of seven to assess damages to. Mr. Max
Lansburg's property, caused by the widening
of Colombia road, and have so written Mr. Al
exander, Mr. Lansburg's attorney.
Captain Svinous has recommended that 8500
be expended on the Anacostia road in gravel
ing it; also that a pipe culvert be put in at In
dian Springs on the Sheriff road, and that rail
road companies should put flagmen at the rail
road crossings.
LIQUOR LICENSES.
The Commissioners yesterday took tip again
the subject of liquor licenses. There are many
nico points daily coming up. which require
some little discussion. One point that excites
no little attention, both on tne part of the ap
plicant and the Commissioners, is that of
corner houses. The portion immediately on
the corner contains a grocery store, while some
distance down one of the streets, separated
from the grocery by a partition, is the bar
room for which application is made. The
Commissioners, when passing upon a case of
this kind, reject the application on the ground
that the place is all under one roof, and, there
fore, on the corner, and reqires the signers on
both streets. Many attorneys having cases of
this kind, argue that the stand taken by the
Commissioners is unjust. They cite the cases
of hotels which are only required to obtain the
signers on the street on which the bar opens,
and of large corner buildings having stores in
them, but distinctly separated from each other.
The Commissioners, however, reject the ap
plication, making an exception, perhaps, of
those cases which have a hall between the two
places.
Yesterday the following cases were taken op
and acted upon:

ALEXANDRIA.
Retorted for The Evening Star.
The Savings Bank Case.?The argument in
the court of appeals in the case of J. A. Mar
shall vs. tho directors of the Farmers1 and Me
chanics' bank has been concluded, and the case
will be decided in a few weeks. The failure of
the bank made a loss of about 35 per cent to
the depositors, and it is contended that when
the loss occurred the directors became liable.
Judge Keith decided otherwise in the circuit
court, and it is thought that the court of ap
peals will be nearly equally divided on the
question of affirming tho judgment below.
Savings banks haft not been successful in Alex
andria. The building associations seem to
huve been far more Buited to circumstances
here, and while there are six building associa
tions there is now no savings bank.
Was the Monet Carried to Washington??
The colored boy, Roger Campbell, oharged
with carrying off moneys belonging to Mr.
Fisher, which he found in the store of Mr. A. J
J. Fleming some days ago. has been again ar
rested and is now in iail. The boy says he car
ried the money to Washington and gave it to
his sister, but the sister declares that she has
never received any money from him.
Notes.?Another large congregation, dis
playing great interest, attended the services of
Rev. Mr. Yatman and the pastor, Rev. Dr.
Young, at the M. E. Church South last night
Dr. Marmion, of Washington, has for some
time been engaged in the treatment of the
eyes of a little son of Mr. Francis Hufty, who
resides in this city. The lad's eye hail been
hurt, but was on the mend under treatment,
when it was hurt again, and threatened to in
volve the other eye. Dr. M. removed the-in
jured eye from the socket, and no further dan
ger to the good eye is anticipated. False
alarms of Are have become frequent here, and
the police will adopt vigorous methods to stop
them. It is said by some that there has been
a considerable improvement in the oil-gas
light, but it is far from popular with gas con

ictiox-tu evolution or the tract, etc.
The second day's 4 session of the Columbia
association of the Baptist churches of the Di*- |
trict was opened this morning st the Calvary
church with devotional exercises conducted by |
W. 8. Olive.
Tho report of the committee on Sunday
schools was read by the chairman, B. C. Fox.
He prefaced the reading of the report by stat- I
ing that letters of inquiry were sent to the
superintendents of all schools in the associa-1
tion so that tho statements of the report were
based on facts and were not mere theories.
The report noted the great interest displayed
in the schools in matters of personal religion.
It was stated that the system of rewards and
prizes was becoming obsoleto. Special atten
tion was called to the display of
TUB MISSIONARY SPIUT
in the Fifth Baptist church in being willing to
mortgage their unencumbered church property
for the purpose of establishing a mission on 4%
street, near the U. 8. Arsenal grounds. The
report deplored the fact that such a large pro
portion or the church members were not inter
ested in Sunday school work.
Bev. Mr. Green, in commenting upon the
report, emphasized the importance of looking
after the spiritual interests of the Sabbath
school scholars and bringing home to tbem the
personal question of their souls' salvation. He
thought tnat this was more a feature of Sunday
school work now than in the past.
In speaking in the same tone Bev. Mr. St&kely
suggested that some special means be adopted
for teaching in the schools the doctrines of the
Bible and, the distinctive doctrine of the
church.
Mr. Z. Bichards advocated the teaching of
the assembly's catechism, and B. W. Fenwick
spoke of the importance of the church mem
bers becoming interested in Sabbath school
work.
Bev. C. C. Meador, Bev. D. W. Fannce and
B. C. Fox took part in tho discussion, after
which the report was adopted.
BIBLE AMU TRACTS.
The committee on Bible and tract Jistribu
tion presented the report through tl e chair
man, E. B. Curtis. The recommendation was
made that the publications of the church be
more freely circulated among the church mem
bers. They also urged that the executive board
appropriate money for the purchase of tracts,
ana that the general missionary be instructed
to preserve tracts suitable for distribution by
the pastors and others in their work. The re
port also favored the publications in the Jtop
tirt Beacon of a series of articles on the doc
trines of the church, which could be generally
disseminated.
Prof. Otis T. Mason in speaking of tracts and
their uses gave an entertaining account of
THE EVOLUTION OF TRACTS.
He said a visit to a great library would show
that somo years ago the tract was very gener
ally employed as a vehicle for reaching people.
If the feelings of some one was to be injured
or their character to be attacked a tract was
issued. As an illustration of the former he
said that in the congressional library there was
a tract called "A gentle purge for a Catholic
priest." Tracts of this kind were followed by
the goody-goody tracts and then came those
the object of which was to convey informa
tion. That was the modern tract, and
it was the circulation of tracts
of the sort that the report recommended. Ho
went on to say that it was not expected that a
good healthy boy fifteen years of age would
read Jeremy Taylor, Jay's Morning and Even
ing Exeroises, and other good devotional books
of 'that sort. The children must be given
books that are interesting and suited to modern
tastes, and unless right reading is supplied to
the children they will supply themselves and
perhaps in a way that is not desirable.
The report was adopted.
A recess was taken for lunch, which was
served in the Sunday school room of the church
by the ladies of the church.
THE ATTEXMOOX AJfD EVENING SESSIONS.
The afternoon session was resumed st 2
o'clock, when the hearing of reports wss con
tinued.
The meeting this evening will be devoted to
the interests of the Home for Aged Women.
The managers have secured the residence in
Georgetown formerly occupied by Jas. 8.
Welch, and the home will be removed there.
The present property on H street will be
leased.
CRIME AMONG COLORED PEOPLE.
An Interesting Question Discussed by
the Bethel Society.
The Bethel literary society held one of its
regular meetings last night at the Metropoli
tan A. M. E. church. The prearranged subject
for discussion was the amount of crime com
mitted by the colored people of the District.
J. W. Cromwell, president of the society,
stated that during the past vear the Criminal
Court bad sent nineteen white men and one
hundred and twenty-one colored men to jail,
and thirty-four white men and sixty-three col
ored men to the penitentiary. Mr.'Cromwell's
remedy for this state of affairs was increased
activity in the Christian church and the estab
lishment of workingmen's clubs. More home
training and more Sunday school instruction,
was the substance of W. H. Scott's propositions.
E. M. Hewlett, the lawyer, defended the col
ored race, and said that more than one-third
of the cases made against colored people were
uniust; the police made arrepts, he said, so as
to keep up tneir rocord. He charged that many
of those sentenced in the Police Court did not
have a real trial, and in the Criminal Court
many a man was convicted because he had no
means with which to engage a good lawver.
'?Give the negro more work." said he. "ani he
will commit less crime." He suggested that it
would be a good thing to send a lot of the city's
idle poor out into the country to work on farms.
AN APEAL TO reputable COLORED PEOPLE.
J. M. llicks said that the fact cannot be ig
nored that the colored people have constituted
the criminal class in this city, and though it
may bo that many arrests have been made
without justification, those who have been
convicted are couvicted for actual crime.
?The colored people," he said, "are great steal
ers, great drunkards, and they have not the fine
sensibility as to morals that some other people
have; not because of race, but because of the
influences under which thev have lived.
Those who are in the upper walks of life are
not willing to stoop down to those who are in
the gutter, to take hold of them and lift them
up. and until the reputable colored people can
aid tho worthless we must continue to have
, such an odium heaped upon us as a race."
Several other speakers, among them being F.
C. Revels, were of opinion that the colored
man would be more prosperous and more
peaceful if he would only avoid the saloon.

As Dr. Tnmblety wss not seen in Washington

to Europe with the doctor and might possibly
return. At the time of his disappearance he

NOVELTIES AT THE "JEOO."
A Rooky Mountain Sheep and Angora

"There have been some addition* to the Zoo."
?aid Professor Hornjtdr to a Stab reporter this |
morning. '-Won't you cone and aee them?"
Accompanied by the profeaaor Tnr Stas man
made his way to the buffalo yard back of the
Smithsonian institution. Here ha law a peculiar
but Terr pretty animal with a remarkably in
telligent face. ??That'* the Rocky mountain
?heep," aaid Profeaaor Hornadar. "He
captured in northwestern Munuiia by a friend
of mine, a half-breed Indian. He ia very tame
but renr impulsive. We kept him in a stall for
awhile, but he made such a funs and did so much
danmgo with those little feet that we had to
TDort him. I believe." continued the profs
"that this is the only specimen of its kind in
any zoological garden.
in an adjoining yard are four beartifnl An
gora goata with long silken hair. They were
presented to the museum bv Mi-sas Grace and ]
Maud Parsous, of Natural Bridge. Ya. It is
understood that thes" goata were imported di
rectly from Asiatic Turkey. The buffalos. the
deer, and in fact all of the animals, are looking
well in their new winter coata.
THE PBOFESSOB AND THX DEER.
"There came near being a dead profeasor
aome days ago," aaid keeper Woeden. "We
were trying to get thin black-tailed deer in
another flielosure. Prof. Ilornaday thought he
was equal to the occasion, and volunteered his
services to engineer him to hi* new quarter*.
Buck didn't like thia. and wanted the professor
removed. As no one would remove him he
undertook that task himself, and had it not
be< n for me the professor would, in all proba
bility. now be chanting with the angels. Prof.
Hornaday, who was standing near by. said it
wn* all so. "The deer did have me down, and
would have made short work of me had it not
been for Mr. Weeden and his club." The deer
spoken of is a magnificent specimen and has
been sketched a number of times.
A CBAZT DEER.
j "I believe this deer is insane," said the pro
fessor, pointing to a mild-looking creature of
the Virginia species. "He won't allow any
other animal in his cage, and when one is put
in he runs around the yard at a two minute
gait, now and then attacking the animal until
we are obliged to take it out."
"Here is the cannibal deer," continued the
professor. "He was presented to the institu
tion by Captain Hoxie. and has since his ar
rival eaten three chickens and as many rabbits.
He is of the Virginia species.
In the zoo building the animals, without ?
single exception, are all in excellent condition.
The large black bears at the western end of the
building have grown a tine black coat and await
anxiouslv for their yard, which is being grav
eled. to be completed.
The jaguar still continues his restless pace
and seems to have grown more beautiful. The
homing pigeons are rapidly increasing and
Liberty and Minstrel have a complete minstrel
troupe.
The grizzly bear cnbs still while away tho
hours in play. They have a visitor now, the
cinnamon bear, and their tricks are always
watched by a large audience.
IK ANNEX FOB TBOPICAL BIRDS AND ANIMALS.
There has been an addition to the present
building, designed for tropical birds and ani
mals. Already it is nearly full. In one end
huge lazy elephant tortoises attract no little
attention. They were collected by the United
States fish commission steamer Albatross at
the Galentagos Islands, off the coast of Ecuador.
They subsist mostly on vegetables, and are
fond of pumpkin, they have no commercial
valne. however, as their shells are too coarse
and their meat bitter. The monkevs have a
fine home in here. The spider-monkey has a
lively companion in a white-throated capuchin.
GALLANTRY OF THE BPIDER-MOKKET.
The Stab reporter gave the spider-monkey
a bit of candy, which he promptly gave to his
female companion amid great chattering.
A cage with a tank of water in it is the home
of a family of alligators. Here it is that one
of the great attractions of the zoo bespocts
himself. It is a soft-shell turtle, and its pecu
liar shape and funny head are studies in them
selves.
"Dese yer is ole frens ob mine," said an old
colored man, speaking of a cage of opossums,
"but the Lord knows dat I wants nufln to do
wid dem dar porkev-pines; dev don' look like
dey war fit to eat. Dese yer is what I is skeered
of." he continued, pointing to a cage of rattle
snakes. "I 'member once, in the mountains ol
Virginia, I laid off to ketch one. I started
bright sn' early one fine summer mornin'. and
it warn't no time 'fore I heertd one. I savs tc
myself. 'Hyars a good chance.' and made ofl
arter him. I couldn't find him. though; 'fas at
I'd go to one place I'd hyar him in anoder,
until I thought dere war snakes all round me,
and 'eluded twar better to run and led de
snakes alone."
The crowds still continue to flock around the
building, and visitors to the city never miss an
opportunity to look in on the embryo coo.
A Girl's Toilet Articles.
From the New York Star.
A sensible girl will not keep a lot of cosmet
ics and drugs on her toilet table, but there are
a few articles which she should always have in
a convenient place. She should have sn ar Ay
of glass stopped bottles containing alcohol,
alum, camphor, borax, ammonia and glycerine
or vaseline. A little camphor and water may
be used as a wash for the mouth and throat il
the breath is not sweet. Powdered aluui ap
plied to a fever sore wiD prevent it from be
coming very unsightly and noticeable. Insect
stings or eruptions on the skin are removed by
alcohol. A few grains of alum in tepnl water
will relieve people whose hands perspire very
, freelv. rendering them unpleasantly moist. A
| few drops of sulphuric acid in the water are
' also beneficial for this purpose, and are also
desirable for those whose feet perspire freely,
t We should always recommend care in the use
I of scented soap": in many cases the perfume is
I simply a disguise for poor quality. A good
i givccrine or honey so?p is always preferable.
I Of course, one may relv on sceiit<*d soap
I from a high class manufacturer, but it costs
more than it is worth. In addition to the soap
for bathing, white castile should be kept for
washing the hair. Occasionally a little horax
or ammonia may be used for this purpose, but
it is usually to harsh in its effects.
Marie Witheri.f.k's Suit for Libel.?The
suit of Marie A. Witlicrbee against the New
York HeraUl for alleged libel came up on a pre
liminary motion in New York yesterday before
Judge Lawrence in supreme court'chambers.
The alleged libel was published in the Herald
of January 9. 18K8. and came in the form of a
telgrapbic dispatch from Chicago. I1L The
complainant claims $50,000 damages. Coun
sel for the defense moved to strike out cer
tain innuendoes in the complaint and for
the plaintiff to furnish a bill of particulars
of the alleged special damages. Plaintiff's
counsel offered to strike out from the
complaint the alhged special damages.
The dispatch asserted that A. Scot* Witheroee
was abont to file a bill of divorce against the
plaintiff, and mentioned the allegations in his
till, among which waa that, like Nana, she was
insatiate. Counsel for the defense, in his argu
ment, pointed out the defects of the complaint,
remarking among other things that a jury
could not be presumed to know who Nana was,
adding that she was the creation of a French
author name d Zola, whose work a London
publisBcr had been punished by the law for
publishing. He argned. moreover, that the
complainant could not extend the words of the
libel, and that an innuendo could not supply
the place of the colloquium. Counsellor the
complainant said the words objected to in the
complaint were necessary.
Tho New York grand jury yesterday found an
indictment of forgery- in the second degree
against Debanm. the defaulting cashier of the
National park bank, who is in jail at Sber
brooke. Quebec, awaiting extradition on a pre
vious indictment.

Bt'StNEM or THE Soar I* WASHING TO*.
President Spencer aay*. in relation to the
business in this city: * The want of additional
yard room at Washington. O. C., had become
so pressing that your management decided to
purchase about aeventeen acre*. fronting on
Boundary avenue, near the intersection ofNew
York avenue, and it i* now txing prepared for
freight yard and station purj one*. The loca
tion in admirable for this purpose, aa well as
for a passenger station for that part of the city,
and the result of tin* improvement should be a
large increase in the company's business and
great economy in the performance of the
present work. It has for some year* been the
exception that freight destined for Washington
has not been seriously delayed at Mart<u*burg,
Washington Junction, and'Baltimore for want
of room for its reception and delivery at Wash
ington. The new yard is expected "to remedy
this difficulty, and to thus attract additional
business."
in REGARD TO TTTtrmK REQCIREKTXT*
the report saya: "Still, many extensive improve
ments are required at various points on yonr
system in order to secure much-needed econo
mies of service. Among these may be men
tioned additional docks snd piers at Philadel
phia; the enlargement and rearrangement of
the Locust Point yard, particulars that portion
in which the coal tonnage and the export and
import traffic are handled; the erection of a
new paaaenger station at Washington, D. C.,
coupled most likelv with an expenaive change
of location of nearlv all the tracka of the com
pany in that city; tfie completion of the double
track on the Metropolitan Branch; a change of
line at Harper'a Ferry, to avoid "the further
maintenance of an unsuitable and expensive
bridge and approaches, a* well as to secure a
double track across the Potomac river at that
Bint; the construction of a new line through
e city of Wheeling, to avoid the heavy grade*
and sharp curvature within the streets of that
city, and to concentrate the yard work now
done at Wheeling. Brnwood and Bellalre for
the three diviaiona of the road ending at the
Ohio river. The exchange of traffic at thia
point from one division to another is subjected
to auch delays as not only to cause serious loaa
to the compimy in the use of its equipment,
bnt to frequently drive the business to com
petitors. This improvement should be made
as soon as proper ordinance* can be obtained
from the city of Wheeling.
Why She Doe* Not Ride.
A RACHITIC* VRH. CLEVELAND I* BAlt) TO till
TO THE PRESIDENT'S WISHES.
An article on "Biding in Washington" in tbs
Comm'poitian says: "The resolution of the
President not to encourage by example as well
as by precept the sport to which the national
capital is so madly devoted, has been the cause
of no little secret grief to thfem. Some of the
lew democratic of the court circle of the re
public feel that the chief executive, like the
Prince of Wales, should be a social leader, the
active and foremost patron of all thoae pleasant
but futile schrmes to make life one gloriou*
holiday. Hard to bear as has been hi* refusal
to imperil the affairs of state by riaking his
neck on the un*table back of a fleet-footed
, steed, thev have refused to be consoled for
I Mr>. Cleveland's abstinence from riding. Her
i friend* have importuned her with a persistence
; worthy of the cause that they have at heart to
ioin their tanbark tournament* and their *imu
| latcd fox hunts; they have pictured to her the
' pleasure and exhilaration of these divine
sport*; but to the entreating words aud smiiee
of Indies and the gracious and eloquent speech
! of nun. she has been unyielding. Whether
thi* apparent obstinancy, so charming that it
ou<?ht to have a finer and more fit name, has
been due to dislike of riding or deference to
her husband's wishes, it were idle perhaps
to speculate. Still I can not refrain from
mentioning the fact that there was a time in
her life, before she assumed the grave and
onerous duties of the tint lady of the land,
when she was rather fond of riding. Nor must
I 1 fail to mention also how a young statesman
i who, though not so eloquent aa Webster or
Clay, can ride better thuu either, once called at
the White House with the gentleet and moet
i comely of animal* to invite her to ride; how,
; like Agrippa, she was "almost persuaded" to
accept the invitation; how thi President, with
sweet and gentle firmness, interposed a veto;
? bow the young wife, mindful of her oath to
, obey her husband, yielded to his wisdom and
1 will; how the young'statesman. unreconciled to
j his disappointment by the profusion of thanks
1 with which his kindness and courtesy were re
warded, rode away with a heavy heart to seek
another companion. In spite of this reluctance
to ride herself. Mrs. Cleveland has attended
many of the entertainments given at the riding
academy, and the success and brilliancy of the
drag hunts and paper chases have been due to
a degree to her warm encouragement and stim
ulating presence. If she has decided, as it is
claimed, to renew her acquaintance with the
saddle this autumn, nothing except a similar
resolution on the President'* part will be want
ting to give eouestrianwui in Washington the
perfect official and social standing that it dose
not now quite possess.
