Surprise la London that He Had the Courage to Kill Himself. Spccid C*b> Dispatch to Tac Etuiho Stab. Losdom, March 2.?Pigott's suicide at Madrid overshadows all else. Astonishment is ex pressed that inch a caitiff had the courage to commit suicide, bat the alternative was penal servitude for life. In the last two years Pigott ?pent more than a thousand a year in de bauchery. Sir Charles Russell pronounced Pigott the worn* man he knew after Carey. The chagrin of the Parnellites over the suicide is intense. Parnell himself, who is not vindictive, only regrets his death as limiting the chance of unearthing the conspiracy. When Pigott entered the witness box Davitt ax claimed: '-Now, the fat old coon is caught in the trap at last." His suicide will help home I rule. The tories who accuse Labouchere of bribing Pigott to fly cannot say that he bribed i him to commit suicide. Had Pigott died ; of heart disease in the witness box he would have recalled Ananias and Sapphira. 1 His suicide recalls Judas Ltcariot Wilfred Lawson says Ananias wax A CHILD IX LYING COMPARED TO PIQOTT. Labouchere declares that the babes in the woods were Solomons to the managers of the Timet. A friend visited Pigott's house in Kingstown this week and found all his busi ness letters in neat order. All compromising letters had been bnrned. Pigott's relatives says Houston tempted him. Mrs. Pigott's corpse was unburied because of their poverty wheu the temptation was offered of a higher price for the documents. In court there was curious sympathy with Pigott Bryce, the historian, said he thought twenty years of a blackmailing life wns a pathetic and horrible spectacle. A popular song is now be ing sung in the music nails and the chorus is enthusiastically received, "Where. Oh, where is this little pir gone. And where. Oh, where cau he be? Oh, why did he trot and spoil all the lot And leave the poor l iam up a tree?" PIGOTT BETRAYED HIMSELF. He Telegraphed to Solicitor Soames that He was In Madrid. London. March 2.?A dispatch received early this morning from Madrid said that the body of the man who shot himself at the Hotel des Ambassadeurs yesterdav when taken into cus to-day by an officer had not been identified as that of Pigott and that the authorities were awaiting a portrait of the latter beforo deter mining whether he was the man who killed himself. A dispatch received this afternoon, , however, removes all doubt that the suicide was Pigott. His identity has been fully es tablished by the officials of the British embassy. hi bad commtnioated with soames. On Thursday an interpreter showed Pigott the sights of Madrid. On that day Pigott sent a telegram addressed ''Ponsonby" to the office in London of Mr. Soames, the T^met' solicitor. : This telegram announced his safe arrival in Madrid and gave his address. It is inferred that the English government learned from this telegram that Pigott was in Madrid. TO FORMALLY IDENTITY THE BODY. It is reported that a note book, containing the addresses of a number of persons in Ire land, was found on the body. Pigott's suicide has caused a profound sensation throughout England. Witnesses have started from Paris for Madrid for the purpose of formally identi fying the bodv. The Madrid police authorities intend to hold the effects of the suicide pending an order from the court relative to their dis posal. It is learned this afternoon that the telegram Pigott sent from Madrid on Thursday to Mr. Soames' office in this city was addressed to Mr. Shannon, the Times' Dublin solicitor, not to "Ponsonby," as first reported. On the receipt of the telegram Mr. Soames notified the police of the whereabouts of Pigott. THE INAUGURAL STAR. Another Gigantic Edition on Monday. The Stab, with the facilities afforded by one of the beat equipped newspaper offices in the country, is enabled to-day to spread before its readers a greatly enlarged edition containing the fullest accounts of all the occurrences of the day and especially of interesting matters relating to the inauguration. The issues of to-day, Monday and Tuesday together will form a most interesting, accurate and complete record of the inauguration. The paper will be issued again Monday in 16-page form, and will con tain an extended illustrated account of the in augural ceremonies, including the inaugural address and a detailed descri] tion of the grand procession. The illustra tions will include over two hundred portraits of officials and officers of organizations in line, and innumerable sketches of scenes and incidents. The additional space secured by enlarging the form of the paper will be given entirely to the readers of The Stab, as the eight extra pages will be filled with reading matter of the best kind, and not de voted to advertisements. With every paper sold over the counter or on the street Monday will be sold a copy of the valuable Stab supplement?an accurate and complete map of Washington, which is issued to-day. INAUGURATION WEATHER. A Rain Storm Coming, but It May Clear by Monday. ' The great question of the hour turns on the 1 kind of weather that will be the lot of that portion of humanity centered in Washington next Monday. Politicians may discuss cabi nets, make slates, break them, and dip into all other occult subjects relative to the art. but the great mass of people, the public, are pon dering over what is to them a much weightier problem?the state of the heavens and the air day after to-morrow. At this time of year the chance* are decidedly against good weather, and many a vain regret is to be heard that the inaugura tion does not occur a month or so later. A reporter of The Stab has haunted the sig nal office of late in an endeavor to peer into the future. This morning he found Gen. Greelv and two or three predictions officers bending over a map, on which they had laid down a chart of the chances. CONCLUSIONS or THE SIGNAL OFFICEBS. To sum up their conclusions the state of things is briefly this: It is raining hard to the southwest of Washington, and it must, from the nature of things, rain hard here by or be fore Monday. If it rains here before midnight to-night the chances are that Monday will be clear, at least after nooiL Therefore the sooner the rain comes the better the chances will be. If it rains by 6 o'clock to-day Monday is almost sure to be fair; if it holds off until to-morrow morning hope will have received a black eye. OBK. OEBELEY THINKS THE BAIN WILL BE OTEB BY MONDAY HOBXINO. The body of the rain storm has moved east ward considerably within the past 48 hours, and it looks as though its westeen edge will be iust about this city on Monday morning. That > General Greeley's personal opinion: he holds that the day will, without much doubt, be clear. At all events, the temperature is not going to be very low, and there may be at least the blessing of a warm day, even though it may rain. Thus, it Is that the conditions are so uncer tain that a definite prediction is almost impossi ble until to-night. War Department Change*. Seaborn C. Suelson, Ga.; J no. W. Cameron, Ala.; Arthur W.

TEE HOTELS PICKED WITH GUESTS Scenes About the Different Depots. TBOUBLES OP THE HOTEL nT.mrg the Great Mass of People The city it dressed in gal* attire and the great throng* in the streets, especially along the Avenue, show that the inauguration festi val has begun. All this, however, is only the promise of the scenes that will be witnessed to morrow and Monday. Probably the largest crowd that was ever gathered in this city, which has witnessed so many notable scenes in the past,will be assembled here daring the next few days. The hotels and boarding-houses are either filled or are rapidly filling up. At the hotels the lobbies and corridors open to the public are a perfect jam. It is next to impossi ble for one to wedge his way through the crowd, and it is about as difficult to obtain an audience with the hotel clerk as with the Presi dent-elect or the President. The philosophy of the hotel clerk is sorely tried just now. THR DE8TRACTED HOTEL CLERK He is the target at which is continuously aimed and discharged a volley of questions. Men that are unable to approach the hotel counter when they come within hearing dis tance frantically wave their arms in the air and shout. The easy languor which characterizes the average clerk on ordinary occasions dis appears, and he fires off the answers to the rattling discharge of questions with the rapid ISt., ,the, precision, of a Gatliug gun. \\ hile the battle rages about the hotel counter the other regions of the hotel are enlivened with hurrying, scurrying servants. Travel stained men and women pass along in groups following very frequently the cot bed. which is familiar to such a large number of the inaugu ral visitors. The demand for qnarters increases with a growing ratio each dav, and it is safe to say that the houses in this city, public and pri vate. will be pretty well crowded, at least until after the 4th of March. Still, it is re ported that there is room for all, and those who apply to the committee on public comfort are able to find accommodations at reasonable prices. HEW AHKIVAL8. The scene at the depots last evening, upon the arrival of the trains, showed that the inau guration period had really set in. The interior of the buildings and the long platforms were crowded with people waiting for friends ex pected on the incoming trains. When the trains arrived, and the passengers poured out, the crowd became an almost immoveable mass It was impossible for friends to find each other and those who had gone to the depots to show that polite attention were obliged to return home without knowing whether the visitors had come in or not. Added to the confusion of the crowd, the heavily-laden trains came in divided up into five and six sections, and on what particularly section one's friends might be, or what particular train it happened to be was just as impossible to find out as if inquirers wanted to know the exact make-up of the new c?binet 80 after surging around in the crowd ft little while PEOPLE OAVE up IX DESPAIR and returned to their homes, where, in the due and regular course of inauguration time, the friends eventually found their way. If there was a crowd inside the depot and a babbling confusion, outside it was still worse As the strangers stepped on the pavement they could not be blamed if they concluded that the depot was surrounded by a huge and angrv mob. As far as the eye could reach, in the glare of the electric light, there could be seen a maHs of men frantically waving their arms and I howling with all the force of their powerful lungs. It was impossible at first to distinguish any particular sound in the chorus of yells That they were in earnest the most confused traveler would have been willing to take his oath. But whether the crowd wanted his life or proposed to tear down the depot was an open question. He could see, however, that the mob had some respect left for law and order, as a space broad enough for one or two persons to walk along was left on the sidewalk from the depot to the street. IH A DAZED SORT OF A WAT It could be seen that this slight regard for order was due to the influence of the clubs of a squad of policemen. There was no time, however, for reflecti on on what seemed to bo a critical situation. The pressure of the crowd in the depot forced the people out of the doors and into the midst of the shrieking, gesticulating throng. As the visitors hurried along between i the cordon of police they were able to dis tinguish some of the sounds in the medley. There was the howl of the hotel runner, of the capper for the boarding house, and of the omnipresent hack driver. Farther along WERE TEE FAKIRS, who had miniature log cabins for tale, canes, pictures of Harrison and Morton, ftnd a great variety of articles that are specially gotten up for such occasions to catoh the nimble penny. The energy and enthusiasm displayed by all these gentry in advancing their personal inter ests were certainly remarkable. As far as per suasive, entreating voices had an influence, theee gentlemen exerted every effort. They did not actually seise the bothered stranger and hold him until he had yielded to theirde mands. The presence of the police was prob ably the only explanation of their forbearance. On the outskirts of the crowd there was another class of solicitors who, without oeasing, urged and implored the new arrivals to sell their re turn tickets. These were the ticket scalpers, who had convenient offloes near by. where they did a thriving business. After the strangers had passed these outposts of the crowd that had assembled at the depots, they mingled in the gay throng that filled the pavements, and were swept onwards to the fashionable hotel room or to the oot bed ftnd hmoh 00outer, as the might be.

At 7:80_ there will be a general fireworks dis play in the monument grounds, and at 8:30 the flambeau display on the avenue. NOTES. The pension office was closed to the public at 13 o clock to-day. At the headquarters of the public comfort committee to-day a Star reporter was informed that they had accommodations for 15,000 peo ple still available. TUl PENNSYLVANIA TROOPS have commenced to arrive, the twelfth regi ment coming in yesterday afternoon. The ninth arrived this morning and the first about noon. These are all debarked at Bcnning, where the extensive tracks of the cattle yard and the 5 miles additional tracks recently laid afford the best facilities. These come into the city at H street northeast by the Benring road, and proceed at once to the quarter* provided for them. LOOEINO AFTEB THE BAOOAQE. The crowds coming in at the B. and O. depot are well looked after by the committee on pub lic comfort, who turn the Tin assigned persons over to messenger boys, who pilot them to where they can obtain quarters. The baggage force has been doubled, and the large piles of baggage are quickly disposed I of. 1 he transfer company profited in this re gard by the last inauguration.and by increasing i and organizing the additional force they have ( been enabled to keep well up with the work '?Judging from the amount of baggage ! handled, ' said one this morning, "those now ? arriving have come to stay, and evidently the impression of many is that they will not find it * necessary to return in a hurry/' Gen.

While here the zouaves will be guests of the G. A. 11. AN AMPLE SUPPLY OF FOOD. The vast throng of people who will be in Washington from now until Tuesday has got to be accommodated with food and shelter in some way, and the means by which this is to be accomplished has tested the energies of hotel, boarding house and restaurant keepers for some time. Merchants and dealers in grocer ies and meats have been laving in large stocks of goods so that it is now believed that ample provision has been made for the unprece dented influx of strangers that is expected. Communications with Baltimore, Philadel phia, Norfolk and New York, is so easy and rapid, that whatever additional supplies are needed can be quickly and promptly supp lied. All the wholesale dealers " have al ready about four times their usual amount of goods on hand and have made arrangements with their correspondents so that a telegraphic dispatch will immediately forward whatever more is required. Armour A Co., Swift A Co., Varnell A Sous and Nelson Morris A Co., the firms which furnish the principal supply of fresh meats, have laid in fifty carloads of beef, comprising the carcases of at least 2,000 head of cattle. There has been an unprecedented rush for hams, tongues and corn beef, from which to make sandwiches, though THE HOTELS PREPARED. All the hotels have of course anticipated the heavy demands that would be made upon them and have stocked their larders to their fullest extent The greatest rush will of course be made for the Avenue hotels, for they are the first to greet the eye of the stranger. The Metropolitan, while it cannot lodge only about 500 persons, is prepared to furnish meals to a thousand people. The National can accommodate about 800 with quarters and expects to furnish meals to at least two thousand guests daily. The St. James expects to do a much larger l business because it is in such close proximity to the B. A P. depot, and will be prepared to fur- 1 nish 5,000 meals daily during the rush. Several hundred feet of counters are being built where guests may stand while eating. The Hal ris house has made ample prepara tions for supplying about ten times its ordinary complement of guests; and the Hotel Johnson, Howard house, and the other smaller hotels on thoAvenue have fully prepared for the crush ?lllard s hotel is almost full of guests and Mr Staples has made arrangements to feed at least two thousand people daily as long as the crowd may last. The Ebbitt is crowded and the overflow goes mto boarding-houses and private dwellings on F and G streets. The Arlington and the Normandie will onlv take regular guests, and though they are both full, the former having about 350 guests, they will not have the crowd that will oppress many of the other hotels. J Wormlev s and Welcker's are having their capacity taxed to its utmost, while at the Ham ilton over 3,000 applicants have been turned away. .At none of these hotels is there felt anv alarm that the supply of food will be insufficient, and no guest need be under any apprehension that his appetite will not be fully and satisfactorily appeased. All the restaurants have been laving in ad ditional supplies, and as thouAin'ds of those who come to Washington on Monday will not remain over night the lunch rooms and restau rants will catch their trade. the national library. Gen. Casey's Plan Adopted. The national library building is to be constructed according to Gen. Casey's re commendations, as the House this after noon finally agreed to the Senate amendment providing for a $5,500,000 appropriation, instead of #4,000,000 proposed by the House. The debate was short, but the weight of the argument was in favor of a brary building that will not only be an ornament to the city of Washington, butja credit to the entire country. Messrs. Ran dall, Holman, and Major Martin were the only members who arose to oppose Mr. Reed's mo tion to adopt the Senate amendment, while 133 gentlemen voted the other way. Mr. Filter's Case. IT WILL BE RXrRBED TO THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY. The case of Chief Clerk Fister, of the super vising architect's, will be certified to the Dis trict attorney by President Ingalls of the Sen ate on Monday morning. The statute in the case provides that an of fense similar to the one with which Mr. Fister is a misdemeanor and punishable upon conviction with a fine of not more than $1,000 or less than $100, and imprisonment for not less one month or more than 13 months in Jail.

It is known that General Harrison is not disposed to make this change, yet he may do so. The Iowa delegation called this morning, headed by General Hender son. who is Clarkhun's most vigorous champion, and had a talk with Geueral Harrison on the subject. The result of their interview is not publicly known, but shortly after noon General Clarkson himself was ' CLOSETED WITH THE PBE8IDENT-ELECT. He remained for some time, and after his ar rival all other callers were refused admission. Quay is still working for Clarkson, it is under stood, and one thing that is calculated, per haps, to increase the Iowan's chances of ulti mate success is the fact that Chairman Hous ton. of Indiana, and his lieutenants, are here fighting with all their might to get law-partner Miller out. Houston has been offered a pretty good thing not quite as high as the cabinet but he is not disposed to quit the fight and ac cept it. MILI.EB 18 THE ONE ACCOMMODATING M4N on Gen. Harrison's cabinet slate. It is Gen. Harrison's warm friendship for him that pnts him in the place, without any politics to it; and. in return, his devotion to his chief makes him ready and willing to do anything that will re lieve the President-elect from embarrassment His entire sympathy and his accommodating attitude makes Gen. Harrison the more desir ous to hold him. He is the man whose personal loyaltv to Gen. Harrison outbalances all thoughts of ambition, and if it becomes advis able for some other to go into the cabinet in his place, he will retire amiably, without any heart burn, and will retain bis devotion to Gen. Har rison. This leaves one place that mav be changed if the change has to be made. And the CLABKBON MEN ABE STILL WOBKINQ. When it was found that Senator Palmer bad accepted the Secretaryship of Agriculture it was suddenly developed that Stockbridge and Oeneral Alger, of Michigan, were opposed to him, and were trying to get him out. This autagonism was no sooner known in Michigan than telegrams began to pour in upon General Harrison from prominent politicians and busi ness men in the state endorsing Palmer. Nearly a thousand of these dispatches have been re ceived up to this time. Both Stockbridge and Alger called on General Harrison this morning TO 1 KOTF.HT AGAINST THE APPOINTMENT. When tbev came down it is said that Stock bridge made a bet of a sixty-dollar suit of clothes against a silver dollar that Palmer would not be in the cabinet But this was gen erally regarded as merely an expressson of his wishes in the matter and was not inspired bv anything he had learned from General Harri son. WINDOM ENDORSED. Senator-elect Washburn, of Minnesota, visited 1 the capitol to-day, and was cordially received in the Senate. He stated to a Stab reporter that he had just received a telegram announc ing that every member of the Minnesota legislature, excepting four, heartily endorsed ex-Senator Windom for a place in "Harrison's cabinet. Mr. Washburn said he received upon his arrival here last night similar dispatches j from various parts of the state. During the morning Senator Palmer had a long conference with Gen. Harrison. A LABGE C'BOWD IN THE ABL1NOTON LOBBY. The largest crowd that has yet assembled in the Arlington lobby was there this morning. It was a very different gathering from that of yesterday and the day before, though most of the same men were there. The same men, but how changed in expression of countenance. THE PLATT MEN HAPPV. The Piatt men who have been in such a state of dumps, were smiling and as happy as school boys on vacation. Gen. Tracy was there among them and his hand was being wrung painfully i in expression of congratulation. "The whole ! thing is over! It is settled!" was proclaimed on ! every hand. The one problem tnat had been j worrying them so long was solved and they were happy. The conversation that heretofore j has been conducted in mysterious whispers ' from out of the way corners Las swelled into a j loud buzzing. The .political plotting and scheming has changed to rejoicing. Only here ' and there was seen a group of two or three in earnest whispered consultation. The faces of j these betrayed no emotion, but they were not BEJOICINO WITH THE BEST. They were supposed to be some of the friends of Warner Miller. A Stab reporter talked with one of them whom he knew, a well-known New York statesman, and got this intimation of 1 what the couferences were about: "Tracy is settled. Oh, yes! but Well, it may de- I velop that there is some opposition from labor people in Brooklyn. It is not apf to. but it might. You see it is not yet known certainly how the selection will be'received. Miller will say nothing against it" This was THE ONLY WHISPEB OF DOUBT that broke in upon the general rejoicing. Gen. Tracy accepted the situation and mingled in the crowd, taking their congratulations mod estly. He is a straight old man, with white hair and long white whiskers. He to a digni fied. modest-mannered man. very approacha ble and courteous. He and Secretary Windom stood conversing in the lobby for awhile, and were surrounded by a crowd. After Windom left Tracy still lingered about the lobby, talk ing first with one and then another. He spent about half an hour trying to write a ten-line dispatch, because of the many interru ptions.
