COURT OF APPEALS
A Number of Important Decisions Handed
Tlie President la the Only Hope for
Juincs Travera?Lower Courts
Late yesterday afternoon after the Court
of Appeals had adjourned for the day, a
number of opinions were filed in cases
argued before the court several weeks ago.
In the case of James L. Travers, convicted
last March of the murder of Lena Gross
near Brightwcod last November, the judg
ment of the lower court was sustained.
The principal contention of the condemned
man was that his confession was wrung
from him by threats and other Induce
ments. The appellate court, however,found
that the defendant had been given the
benefit of every possible doubt, and that
there were no errors committed by the trial
judge of which he * could justly complain.
Travers, a young cplored man, was sen
tenced by Judge Cole to be hanged on the
U)th of next month, and his only hope now
is with the President.
In the case cf Richard H. Fletcher
against the Baltimore and Potomac Rail
road Company, the judgment of the lower
court was also sustained. Fletcher was
employed by the company and was injured
by tfe'.ng struck by a piece of timber thrown
from a train. He sued the company, claim
ing $10,000 damages, but in the court below
Judge Bradley directed a verdict for the
The judgment of the lower court was also
affirmed in the case of the Walter T. Brad
ley Coal, Lime and Cement Company
against the Clark Brothers Lime and Ce
ment Company, brought to recover a judg
ment creditor's bill for $1,150. The defend
ent company contended that their real es
tate had been conveyed to the corporation,
and that the property was, therefore, ex
empt from attachment. In the court below
Judge Cox decided otherwise, and in that
opinion he was sustained by the appellate
In the case of Alice Boswell against the
District, In which she was awarded dam
ages because of injuries sustained by her
in falling over a projecting gas box in the
sidewalk, the judgment below was affirm
ed, holding that the District in not remov
ing or having removed the obstruction
thereby became responsible.
In the controversy over the estate of the
lat^ Allen McLane, in which a ruling of
Judge Cox was questioned on the ground
that his temporary assignment to the
Probate Court was illegal without a revo
cation of the regular assignment by the
Court in General Term, the temporary as
signment was held by the appellate court to
have been legal, and the rulings of Judge
Cox were affirmed.
In the case of B. H. Warner against Thos.
E. Young, to collect a note for $220, the
judgment of tlie lower court in favor of
Mr. Warner was affirmed.
The judgment of the lower court in the
ca.*e of the Eastern Trust and Banking
Company of Maine against William G.
Johnson and others was reversed. The
question at issue was whether a trust re
corded in Maine instead of here was prop
erly executed. In the court below Judge
Bradley held that it was not and that the
right of possession had passed from the
trustee to the purchasers. The Court of
Appeals holds that while the trust had
not been properly executed the right of
possession did not pass from the trustee.
Men Who Have Served Ten Yean as
The National Rides held a full dress
meeting at their armory last night, at
which those entitled to service medals re
ceived tfs coveted token of their long term
of enlistment. The medals were in the
shape of the Iron Cross, and were for a
ten-year's service. Capt. Oyster presented
them with a neat little speech, in which he
expressed the hope that the company
would stand by him in the effort to Join
the National Guard, and then presented
Gen. Albert Ordway, commanding the Dis
trict of Columbia National Guard. Gen.
Ordway said that he had always wished
to see the Rifles a member of the guard,
and that he was ready at all times to ex
tend to them a most hearty welcome. It
was expected that they would be mustered
in -last night, but something unforeseen
stopped the proceeding and a meeting has
been called lor Thursday night to decide
tlie matter definitely. These who received
ten-year medals were: Capt. James F.
Oyster, Lieuts. J. O. Manson, G. W. Evans,

Despite the warm weather, a large num
ber of the friends and relatives of the pu
pils of the Washington Female Seminary
attended the commencement exercises at
the Church of Our Father last night.
The altar was rrofusely decorated with
cut flowers and palms, and overhead a
large banner, in yellow and white, the class
colors,- with the class motto, "Excelsior,"
completed the decorations.
A most interesting program had been pro
vided by Miss Claudia Stuart, the principal,
consisting of solos, choruses and recita
tions. Rev. John R. Elliott, S. T. D., de
livered an interesting address to the grad
uates, full of good advice. Misses Amy
Bruce Tongue and Marie Stone Legare re

The following young ladies took part in
the exercises: Btrtha P. Currie, Fannie W.
Beall, Helen L. Gait, Sue H. Davis. Vir
ginia B. Wake. Ella G. Edmonds, Lenore
Paschal. May W. Elliott, M. Ellen Stuart.
A minuet in costume, arranged by Miss
Harrison, teacher of elocution, concluded
the exercises, and. was greatly enjoyed.
A second suit has been filed by the Peo
ple's Transportation Company against the
owners of the 'steamer Jane Moseley to
enforce a specific performance of contract.
The company claims that a contract was
made April 3, 1895, providing that the com
pany shall lease the boat from May 15 to
September 15, 1895, with a prl\*ilege of pur
chase at the close of the season for $29,560,
the owners of the boat to have control of
it by naming the captain and crew, 'hey
to be paid by the company. The failure
of the owners to allow the boat to run to
Douglass Beach on Decoration day, it is
claimed, occasioned a loss of $1,300 to the
company. The company claims that ror
sufficient cause existed for this action on
the part of the owners, and pray the court
to compti them to surrender the boat to
the company according to the terms of
Oak Hill Cemetery.
At the annual meeting of lot holders of
Oak Hill cemetery held yesterday after
noon, Mr. M. W. Gait was elected president,
and Messrs. James L. Norris and Morris J
A.dler members of the board of directors.
Mr. Henry S. Matthews was chosen secre
tary, and Mr. J. Taylor Motter treasurer
and acting superintendent. The report for
the year ending April 30, whlyh tfas read
and approved, showed that there were 265
interments made in the ccmetery during
the twelve months covered by the report,
and extensive repairs were made to the
crhapel, including a new flooring, interior
Jecorattons and an entire set of stained
glass windows. Under the rule of the
cemetery that all of the revenue above ac
tual expenses shall be used in beautifying
the property, the interest of a sum which
now amounts to $157,000 is used for this

The stonemasons who are at work on the

the part of the others to adopt a similar
course if the shelter was not forthcoming
this morning. The sheds were on hand

Grand Opera House.?Although the aver
age temperature of the Orand Opera House
is by actual measurement sixteen degrees
lower than the street temperature, there
was no Immediate danger there last night
of a frost. Still, there was a good audience
in attendance, and it enjoyed the perform
ances, more especially that of "My Wife's
Mother." The first play was "Jack White's
Trial," a dramatic incident in one scene,
presented by Mr. Shirley, Mr. Findlay.Miss
Curry and Miss Johnson, and it was no
ticeable, principally, in giving Mr. Findlay
an opportunity to appear as a young man,
and he did it very well. The real fun be
gan with the next play. "My' Wires
Mother," with Mr. Bond, Mr. Abbe, Mr.
Findlay, Mr. W allace, Mr. Bu ke, Mrs.
Findlay, Miss Curry. Miss James, Miss
Johnson and Miss Blanche Walsh, in the
cast. Naturally, the interest centered in
Miss Walsh, who was making her first ap
pearance in light comedy, as also her first
appearance in the Bond Company. She as
sumed the character of Sibylla, a mystery,
and notwithstanding it seemed to be a
stepping downward from the more digni
fied characters in which she is known to
Washington, her beauty, her ability and
her adaptability easily made her at home
in the new ioIo and established her fitness
for the part. In other words; Miss \\ alsh
lias tile comprehensive facility of acting,
which enables her .to take any character
more than well. She was received with a
round of applause, and she maintained her
self at riiat standard throughout. Mr.
Bond, as the victim of his wife's mother,
was very good, and Mr. Abbe, as the rather
tough youngf man and husband of Sibylla,
was at his very best, and had rather the
best thing in the whole performance. Mrs
Findlay, as the mother-in-law, gave a real
ism to the part that was almost painful
to some married people in the audience.
Again tonight, and a cooler night is prom
ised by the weather worthies.
New National Theater.?The New Na
tional Theater attracted a large audience
last night with "An Awful Affair" as the
play, and a company whose uniform abil
ity throughout the cast makes it impos
sible to pick out any one or two persons
as being worthy of especial note. The
play is conventional in its general struc
ture, but. it is cleverly put together, none
the less, and has plenty of genuine humor
in its situations as well as tn its charac
ters. The basic ic'ea of the play is one
which has been employed by every success
ful writer of comedy?the plunging of a
man into an environment to which he is
socially, intellectually or physically not
adapted. This is one of the standard re
sources of the humorist, both in literature
and the drama, and it is capable of varia
tions so infinite that there is no danger
of its palling on the popular palate. "An
Av.'ful Affair" displays literary refinement,
despite the farcial tone of its title, and
the company now employed at the New Na
tional Theater presented it with a snap and
sparkle that kept faithful admirers who had
defied the heat amused from the beginning
to the end of the performance. Charles
Coote was greatly liked, and Mr. Bowser
made a successful first appearance with
this organization. The variety of choice
which the field of fetan-dard comedy offers
gives it a distinct advantage over the
operatic entertainments which have hither
to held the lion's share of the summer
theater patronage. There are but few
operas, and the audiences know them al
most as well as the singers do?sometimes
better?but the mine of comedy which the
dramatic library holds has as yet been
scarcely worked beyond the surface crop
pings. One of the greatest pleasures con
nected with a go.od production like "An
Awful Affair" is that there are so many
more where that came from.
Kernan's I-yceum Theater.?Three shows
in one is what the management of Ker
nan's offers its patrons this week. In the
theater a lively burlesque, entitled "The
White Crook," holds the interest of the
audience for nearly two hours, giving
awav to the boxing carnival, which is still
in progress. "The White Crook" is amus
ing, and introduces several fine specialties.
There Is the usual quota of pretty, shapely
girls and clever comedians. In the boxing
match Jack Daly and Billy Payne fought a
draw. After this the performance was
continued in the summer garden. The pro
gram contained Lena Le Courier, Ward
and Leslie, Emma Ito9e Lee. Ellie W illaru
and Norma Brown, Josie Lore, Sanford and
Lee, George Kerr and Pearl Bradbury. In
the absence of Manager Kerrian, Assistant
Manager Meyer Fisher looks after the in
terests of the house, and his already wide
popularitv serves him well. TorHprht the
boxing bout will be between Torn Caldwell
and Jocke Brown.
