Incident un 9 Street Car.
A LADY IS ACCOSTED BY A STRAXOER IS THE DAY
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

The annual report of the officers of the
Hebrew relief society was read at the Eighth

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

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."

meeting of the Federal Bar Association was

day night at Grand Army hall. Gen. S. 8. Bur
dett officiating. CoL W. 8. Odell, the newly
elected commander of the department of the
Potomac, made a happy speech: after which
the first general orders were read, announcing
the following appointments: Assistant adjutant
general, C. II. Ingram; assistant quartermaster
general. Charles Matthews; inspector. James
W. Butcher; judge advocate. Fred. Brackett:
chief mustering officer. James E. McCabe; chief
aide-de-camp, John F. Vinal.
The orders stated that the "headquarters

days. and that comrades are cordially requested
to visit headquarters early and often.
Representative Johnston, of Indiana, was
present and addressed the meeting.
The officers installed were: Commander.
William S. Odell; senior vice-commander,
James M. Pipes; junior vice-commander, Solo
mon E. Faunce; medical director. Henry A.

After the exercises Gen. Burdett presented a
fine portrait to the department of Charles P.
Lincoln, the retiring commander.
They Want to Get the Monet.?Mr. F. H.
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.

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
Addison on Woman Suffrage.
HOW THE ESSAYIST M1XULED COMPLIMENT AND
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. When Venus
complained to Jupiter of the wound she had
received in battle, the father of the gods
smiled upon her and put her in mind that"?
but here Addison must stop.
A Disappointed Artist Missino.?Frank
Ranbickek, a New York artist, has been
missing since the 12th instant. and
there is every reason to believe that he
has committed suicide by drowning. He re
cently completed a picture which he confiden
tially informed his friends was his best work
Ho set a high price on it, and failing to sell it
in the city, tola his wife lie was going to Boston
to find a purchaser. On Tuesday Mrs. Kanbic
kek received a letter from her husband, ii. which
he told her that he was going to drown 1 imself
with his picture strapped to his body. Nothing
has been heard of him since.

"For three years I suffered with dyspepsia, growing
