Miss Allen, who lives on Q street northwest. was on an Avenue car yesterday about 4 o'clock with her aunt en route to East Washington to visit some friends. A man entered, and. tak ing his seat opposite, began to smile and bow to the young lady in a very familiar manner. She noticed at first a resemblance of a man of her acquaintance, named Webster, but not having seen him for some time, hesitated about speaking. Finally led to believe by the continued attention of the man it was her ac- | quaintance returned his bow. Whereupon he came over and took his seat beside her and began a conversation. She asked immedfately if he was Col. Webster, to which he replied: "No I am not Col. Webster, but you call at the hotel this evening and send your name up to Mr. Cole, and that will be all right." The young lady promptly told him he had made a mistake, and ttirned her back upon him and began conversation with her aunt. The man got out and went into the hotel mentioned just as the car was passing that place, which was immediately after the conversation. It is likely this is the same tall man with reddish gray whiskers referred to in The Star a few days ago as accosting young ladies from Georgetown. The Hebrew Relief Society. liberal subscriptions to help the poor. The annual report of the officers of the Hebrew relief society was read at the Eighth street synagogue yesterday morning in the preserfce of a large number of Hebrew citizens. The report stated that by exercising care and circumspection the funds on hand were made to meet all proper calls for relief up to date, but that the resources of the society remaining would be absorbed by the payment of coal bills already contracted. The total amount col lected by the society last year was $590.50, to which was added $17.26, turned over by the old board, making ?607.81. The society ex pended. for charity, in cash, ?326.20; for coal, ?213.50; for postage and printing, 83; a total of I ?544.40. leaving a balance of ?63.11 in the J treasury. The number of cases relieved by money donations was 121, the sums given rang ing from ?30 to 50 cents. The average dona tion to each person was ?2.90. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: Heurv King. jr.. president; Louis Rosenberg, treasurer; Lewis Abraham, secretary, and [ Abraham Fisher. Max Kaufman and W. Nord linger. directors. A subscription wai started, resulting in the immediate contribution of I several hundred dollars. In Memory of Judge Merrick. ACTIOS OF THE district supreme court to-day. In the Court in General Term this morning, all the justices present, District-Attorney Hoge, in a neat and appropriate address, presented to the court the resolutions adopted at the meeting of the 9th inst. in respect to the memory of the late Justice Merrick He said 1 that it was fit and proper that the resolutions should be spread upon the minutes of the court I in which there were so many evidences of his 1 work, of his integrity, his justice, his learning. He moved that the resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the court. Chief Justice Bingham said the resolutions mauifest and express, so far as may be by acts and words, the esteem and affection of the bar for their deceas?d friend, the late Justice Mer rick. and their sorrow at his demise. The reso lutions thus recorded will convey to future generations in language well chosen and truth ful in knowledge of the many virtues and great J ability which characterized "him as a man, law yer. legislator, and jurist. "For the associates of the deceased on the bench who survive him, I am sure that I may say for one and all that the resolutions receive their sincere and unquali fied indorsement, and that they experienced a double bereavement in the loss of a dearly- j beloved friend and an honest, faithful, learned, and able associate in the discharge of the du ties imposed on the justices of this court. In intercourse with his brethren of the bench his equanimity, affability, and geniality never for sook him. His loss will long be deeply de plored by the bench and bar of this community and the country, nor will it be easy to fill the position which our brother in life occupied and adorned as a justice of this court. The order is made as requested by the honorable district attorney, that the resolutions be spread in full upon the records of this court." The Federal Bar Association.?The annual meeting of the Federal Bar Association was held Saturday at Welcker's. Officers were elected as follows: President. John W. Doug lass; vice-president, William E. Earle; treasurer, John S. Blair; secretary, George A. King; ex ecutive council. William W. Belknap, Charles King. Alex, Porter Morse. George P.

We Call Attextio* to the report of the Equitable Life Asaurauce society printed in to-day's paper. The popularity of the local management of this rreat institution under Messrs.

Mackey has. for Samuel Cox. Amerieus Davis and otiiers. filed a bill against John H. Walter, B. L. Walker, and others, asking that certain propertv be declared held in trust for complain ants. "fhev allege that they were induced by defendants to believe that their interests as heirs of the late Richard Young, in fifty-two Eieces of property, near Lincoln park, were of ut little value, and in December, 1986, and February, 1887. they conveyed their interests (four-tifthsl to defendants for $750. believing that they were getting full value. They assert that they were then deceived; that the price was grossly inadequate, and that they had a clear title to the propertv. worth about $50,000. Ab most of the property has been sold, and the proceeds reinvested by defendants, they pray that the property in which the proceeds nave been reinvested be declared held in trust for the benefit of complainants. Failed to Aobee.? Saturdav afternoon Chief Justice Bingham, holding the Circut Court, division No. 1, discharged the jurv in the case of Taulman et al. agt. Robs, on which they had deliberated for twenty-seven hours and failed to agree upon a verdict. This was a contro versy between cousins, and three acres of land near Glenwood, valued at about $70,000. were involved. This propertv was in the name of D. T. Taulman and deeded by him to his son, John D., and both died shortly afterward. The others of the family claimed that the convey ance should be set aside, as D. T. Taulman was mentally incompetent to make a valid deed at the time. Louw James and His Wife Sepaiiate.? Louis James and Marie Wainwright are no longer living together as man and wife, and if there were any doubts that their announced intention to separate professionally at the end of the present season was due to domestic differences, these doubts are now set at rest. Mr. James (the well-known actor, who is a na tive of this city.) is said to have discovered recentlv that he had lost his wife's affections, and a mutual agreement to separate was at once made. Marie Wainwright was the wife of a man named Slaughter when she went on the stage. When playing at the Boston museum she became acquainted with James, and the acquaintance soon ripeued into love. Mr. Slaughter's suspicions were aroused, aud hav ing learned facts which convinced him of his wife's unfaithfulness, he procured a divorce. James and Mrs. Slaughter were then married. Marie Wainwright James is a grandaughter of the late Bishop Wainwright, of the Protestant Episcopal church, and a near relative of Com modore Trion, of the United States navy. She has planned to spend the summer in Europe. Troy, N. Y., workmen are indignant because gangs of Italians were pnt to work on Saturday excavating for the new gnn factory at Water vliet arsenal.

Firat. allow me to state that the first intima tion that I had that I wan to be placed upon the ticket with Abraham Lincoln came to me tnrough the lips of Schuyler Colfax. I wa? playing a pleasant game of eucher in my room. My colleague. Senator Fcssenden; Senator Grimes, of the state of Iowa, and a member of the House from Maine constituted the party; and we were smoking our cigars, as I was just now when you deprived me of smoking mine quietly, when there was a tramping of feet in the corridors of the Washington hotel, where I was tarrying, a loud rap at the door, and the abrupt entrance of Schuyler Colfax at the head of the procession, which approached and addressed me rs the Viee-I'resident of the United States. Well, now, my friends. I held in my hand at that instant the most magnifl* cent lone hand you ever saw. I held the best cards- both bowers and an ace and another ace: and don't you think that barbarous crowd burst in upon me and I LOST MY LOSE HAND. , W ell, I seized npon my chair in an uplifted position, and said to Schuyler Colfax: "Clear out of this room! You have despoiled a lone hand in eucher. and you have brought me 110 fitting return." Why. I had no more idea of having the nomination to that office than I had of being struck bv lightning. Well, that was 1 the first stop. ^ The next was after election. After the election President Lincoln kindly in j vited me to meet him at the Tremont House, of this city. He kindly fixed the time so that I it would accommodate me to meet him here, and for me to depart from this city to Wash ington to be present at the opening of Con gress. I met him at the Tremont House. I arrived upon the day named. I reported my self at the office and I inquired if the Presi dent-elect. Mr. Lincoln, was present in the house. I was told that he was. I sent him my card, and immediately I was invited to hia room. I repaired to the room, the door was opened by the serv ant, and there was President Lincoln. He approached me with his ex tended hand, to which I tendered mine, and that was the first shake of the hand between us on earth. Addison on Woman Suffrage. HOW THE ESSAYIST M1XULED COMPLIMENT AND PROPHECY. From Macmillan's Magazine. Addison alone has hit upon the one argu ment most likely to give the female politician pause. "A man is startled." he has written (in The Freeholder, No. 26) "when he sees a pretty bosom heaving with such party rage as is disagreeable even in that sex which is of a more course and rugged make. And yet such is our misfortune that we sometimes see a pair of stays ready to burst with sedition, and hear the most masculine passions expressed in the sweetest of voice." And again (in No. 38 of the same paper): ' There is nothing which makes the sex more unamiable than party rage. The finest woman in a transport of fury loses the use of her face. The most endearing of our beautiful fellow subjects are those whose minds are the least embittered with the passions and prejudices of either side, and who discover the native sweet ness of the sex in every part of their conversa tion and behavior. A lovelv woman, who then flourishes in her innocence" and good humor amid that mutual spite and rancor which pre vail among her exasperated sisterhood, appears more amiable by the singularity of her charac ter. and may be compared with Solomon's bride, to 'a lily among thorns.' A stateswoman is as ridiculous a creature as a cotquean (i. e. a man who busies himself with women's duties)! Each of the sexes should keep within its par ticular bounds and content themselves to excel within their respective districts.

No rack, no strain, no pain, accompanies the administra tion of Hood's Sarsaparilla. "For three years I suffered with dyspepsia, growing so bad that I was completely broken down in health. 1 began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, and soon gained strength and appetite, and was restored to my former health."
