A mongrel dog, supposed to be mad, made
its appearance on Capitol Hill yesterday
afternoon and succeeded In blUng the little

excursion yesterday, and so In the after
noon he went with some playmates to the
coffer dam. near the Georgetown channel,
a"d .wsnt I" swimming. The little boy
waded out In the water, but on the unevn
sui face he was unable to walk fast Be
fore reaching the channel he stepped in a
hola and disappeared. His companions won
became aware of his disappearance, >m 1
their cries attracted the attention of a
IVUtn^CL?r per.9ons I" the neighborhood of

but they could render no assistance to the
boy. who had disappeared. The body was
recovered within an hour's time and rt
moved to his mothjr's home. Coroner

A Charge of Intoxication.
There was a squad of mounted policemen
leading the commonwealers on their way to
the Peace monument yesterday, and a citi
zen reported to Capt. Austin that one of the
| guardians was under the influence of liquor
I Policeman D. J. Coleman was the officer
pointed out by the citizen, and Capt Yustln
directed the attention of one of the ser
geants to him. The result was that the of
tlcer mentioned was sent to the police sta
tion. and now charges of Intoxication have
! been preferred against him.
Capt. Austin said to a Star reporter this
morning that he saw Officer Coleman yes
terday, but he could not say that he w i?
under the influence of liquor. He thou-ht
however, that the officer had taken some
thing that gave him the appearance of a
man who had been drinking.
The affair was a surprise to the officers ln
the ranks, for It is said that Officer Cole
man s condition was hardly notic-able to
them. \\ hen the case is tried, however the
witnesses will be called to give evidence
aiU among them will be the citizen who
made the complaint.

THE l\K>OW.V BODY.
81(11 Multiply That the Man Commit
ted Deliberate Snlclde.
There has not yet been a complete Iden
tification of the body of the man found
in the river near Mt. Vernon last Friday,
as printed In "1 he Star yesterday, but from
Superintendent Dodge of Mount Vernon ad
ditional particulars of the finding of the
body and the surrounding circumstances
have Leon obtained to Indicate that the limn
committed suicide and not that he was mur
dered. A man named Dickson, who lives in
Alexandria, made the ghastly discovery. He
was on the river in a small boat at the
time and instead of leaving the body and
I letting It wash away while he went to te
1 port the facts, he made the body fast to a
slake In the witer and then notified Supt.
| Dodge of the find.
The dead man was comfortably dressed
I In a suit of blue serge, a white shirt and a
polka-dot tie. His clothing was apparently
in good condition, although the mud and
water had discolored them. When the body
was taken ashore and an examination made
It was clear to the mind of Supt. Dodge
that the man had taken his own life. There
?us one bullet hole In his body, the bullit
having entered the left breast Just below the
nipple. Both the outer and under shirt had
been cut away from the left breast In ordtfr
that the bullet would not soil the garments,
and, perhaps, cover the wound afterward,
so that the body might be interred without
the relatives, and friends of the dead man
knowing that he had taken his own life.
in one pocket of the coat was found
a new leather wallet. In which were new
treasury notes. one and two dollar bills, R51
In all. Then there was a box of 43 cart
ridges and a new pistol cleaner. The p.ev
en cartridges that hail been taken froin the
box. It is thought, tilled a sei en-shoo'.er,
with which the deed was committed. There
was a large stone In the trousers pocket,
' niille a number of stones tied In a liand
! kerchief had been put in the coat pocket.
On the shore not far from where the
' body was discovered was found a white nlk
j lining of a hat. in which a number of stone's
had been placed, but the bundle was evl
de ntly too large to be put In a pocket.
This hat lining bore the address of u hat
ter at No. 50 Church street. New York, and
It is thought possible that the man came
here from that city and suicided.
The police feel satisfied that the body is
1 not that of Addle Moskovits. the missing
I Hungarian, and they feel satlslleel that he
| has returned to his native country.

AMUSEMENTS.
Academy of Music.?A large and enthusi
astic audience assembled at the Academy of
Music last night to witness the performance
of "The Three Dukes" by a local amateur
company styling themselves the Washing
tonlans. The opera is the work of two for
mer high school boys, and both in music
and libretto is shown the evidence of decid
ed talent. Many of the numbers are de
cidedly catchy, and the audience was quick
to recognize the fact and applause was
abundant. Much originality of construc
tion is shown by the composer and in some
of the concerted numbers excellent effects
I are produced. The musical score is better
j than that of some comic operas that have
> made professional successes, and the book
contains much that Is bright and sparkling.
The company presenting the opera is an ex
cellent one and shows what a wealth of
amateur talent there is in Washington.
Miss Dorothy Byrde Rogers sings the lend
ing soprano part and her sweet and pow
erful voice is heard to excellent advantage.
She received an emphatic encore to each
of her solos, and richly deserved them. The
Inveicatlon to the moon in the second act,
with all its difficulties of intervals, was a
test of the excellence of her work, while in
the concerted numbers In which she par
ticipated her clear tones were heard above
all the others. Her character of Donna
Isabelle made her the mother of two daugh
ters?Misses Lincoln and Sullivan-but her
pretty face and youthful appearance could'
not to be disguised, and decidedly negatived
; the lines of the book that referred to her
t as a back number. Miss Bertha Lincoln
i has had seme professional experience and
I this was manifest In the ease of manner
wl?.i which she took the part of Valencia.
She dressed it appropriately and richly, all
| her costumes being the subject of highly
complimentary remark by the feminine por
j tion of the audience. She sang artistically
! and was encored, both In her bolero in the
\ first act, and in her song in the second.
The latter had to be repeated twice before
the audience would be satislled. Miss Ce
cilia Sullivan is the youngest of the three
principals and as this is her first venture
in opera her performance was quite remark
able. She is an exceedingly pretty girl and
sings and acts with considerable spirit.
She, too, was complimented by an encore
to her solo In the second act.
The principal male characters are taken
by W. H. Harris, Don Cachucha; llans
Robert, Stephano; Felix Mahoney, Sebas
tian. and lien. Judson. Benzlno. and while
they are hardly up to the standard set
by the ladies they are all good and fur
nish much amusement by their acting.
They carry the musical numbers allotted
them effectively. Mr. Harris is a good
co:nc lian and in his topical song was re
called again ani again until he was ub
| solutely wearied with the work. It was
' good work, however, and as the stanzas
| were his own the desire for more on th.i
i part of the audience was highly compll
| mentary. The others in the cast were
Miss Willie E. Barton, who doubled the
parts of Marquita and Frederico; Arthur
Gardne.-.the landloard; Sam'l Bruckheimer,
; Tamborinl; W. W. Cullisoii, Petro; R. T.
( Oliver, Mateo, and Master Luckett, fan
| bearer, all of whom acquitted themselves
| creditably.
There was a children's ball?t introduced
I In the first act. which proved highly at
' tractive and had to be repeated.
The chorus was especially strong and
1 effective and much of their work had to
i be repeated. The orchestra, which was di
rected by the composer. Mr. Arthur Percy
Harris, was a large one and played in good
! form. Mr. W. H. Harris, the librettist,
j was the stage manager, and it need only
j be said that the opera was handsomely
costumed and mounte>d. "The Three
Dukes" will be repeated tonight and for
the remainder of the week, with a matinee
on Saturday. The performances are for
the benefit of the charity fund of John A.
Rawlins Post, and this fact, as well as the
merit of the preiductlon, should Induce a
large attendance.

THE BRIDGE BROKE
Serious Accident to a Party of Local
Picnickers.
Mlaa Villa Cnatl? Seriously Injured?
The Urltlice Wni Kotten?The
Accident at Urent Fall*.
A rotten foot bridge at the Great Falls
caused a serious accident yesterday. That
it did not result fatally was almost a mar
vel. A party of picnickers from Capitol
Hill included Dr. G. W. N. Custis of 112
East Capitol street and his family and Mr.
W. B. Baldwin and family, who composed
the majority of the party, which was about
eighteen in number. They were all cross
ing over to the rocks in the midst of the
falls from the Maryland shore by way
of the long narrow bridge swung partly
on wire cables and partly on wooden
girders. When the first group of the party
reached the second sppn of the bridge
from the falls there was a sharp crack
and the girders broke, letting seven of the
' excursionists into the swift stream below.
The water was about up to the armpits of
a man and some of the ladles were sent
over their depth. The men of the party,
who chanced to be walking behind, ran
down the rocks of the small Inlet and
succeeded, after great effort, in getting
all of the people out of the water.
All seven were badly shocked and bruised,
but only one, Miss Villa Custis, the daugh
ter of Dr. Custis, was seriously Injured.
One of her limbs was dislocated, ami she
was painfully bruised by '.he rocks in the
bed of the stream, against which the was t
buffeted by the current. She was gxeatly i
exhausted when rescued, and for a time
it was feared that she had sustained some j
serious fractures. This, nowever, was not ?
the case, and she was quite o.ble to be laktn j
home. The Injured of the party were !
brought back from the falls on a steam
launch tendered by another party of pic
nickers. Sensational reports of the accl- j
dent went abroad and reached the prints
Mrs. Delos Smith was among the injured, j
Dr. Custis said to a Star repjrter this
morning: "It is not true, as has been pub- j
lished, that the party was swinging and '
jumping on the bridge. We were passing
over quietly and without any unnecessary
activity. I inspected the bridge after the
accident, and I am convinced that the gild
ers were rotten. There was every evidence
of dry rot. I do not think there was any
cable on that span, though there may huve |
been one strand, perhaps an inch in
diameter. The materials of the bridge
looked to me like driftwood. There was no
unusual weight on the bridge, and there
was no sky lurking or romping. There were
other people passing to and fro on the
bridge. It was a miracle that some <f the
people were not killed.
"The heroism of George Pitts, a lad four
teen years of age, was commented on by
the entire party. He happened to fall in the
deepest portion of the water, together with
his mother and Mrs. Baldwin's maid. The
little fellow pluckily held up the two wo
men until assistance came and they were j
released from what might have been a
! perilous position owing to the swift cur
rent."
AFFAIRS IX UlCUHUETO\V\.
Several Molci of General Interest
From Arruaa Rock Creek.
A conveyance to which two horses were
attached was found on the Canal road last
night about 10 o'clock. It had been aban
doned, it Is said, by a party of four, two
men and two women. They had been
thrown through the spirit of the horses,
received injuries, and, unwilling to trust
themselvea further, had left the team In
the middle of the road ard gone to a drug
?tore for repairs. Through the strain
brought upon It the harness had been
broken In several places. The vehicle had
also shared in some rough treatment.
The condition In which Prospect street
extended has been left by the contractor,
through the order of the authorities, is
causing a storm of Indignation to arise
among those most directly interested. Open
, ditches are In the roadway, private water
| pipes are exposed, piles of earth are scat
) tered here and there. Impeding, actually
| stopping, road traffic, and owing to the un
| finished grade owners cannot tell as yet
j what changes In their front steps, etc.,
1 will be necessary. Tenants have been ?o
Inconvenienced along the line that many
have moved to other sections, thereby
causing financial loss to the taxpayers of
the section. The street Is to be left In its
present condition for an indefinite period,
the authorities, It Is understood, having
said that the absence of money with which
to carry on the work necessitated the
stoppage. Hither the Improvement will go
, over for another year or a special appro
j prlatlon will have to be made to complete
the work begun.
Fifty-four of the Hoffman mine strikers
| in the Cumberland region have returned
I to work and other preliminary steps
toward the resumption of active Hilt
| tlons have been tak^n. There are sufficient
! men in the I'nlon mines now to take out
' 00 tons a day.

"In the spring of 1802 I was all .*un down, my

to take Ilood's Saisuparilla. I did so and I began
to feel better. 2 could sleep nights and I
EN JOYED A GOOD KEST.
I also began to cat more and my food digested i
well. I have now taken seven l*>ttles and today
I consider myself one of the healthiest women In i
