Bridget Nicholson, the woman who is so well known on 15th street and Pennsyl vania avenue atr"Mary, the Newswoman," had an unpleasant experience while getting her Stars yesterday afternoon. She always gets her papers early, and y'esterday when a boy was crowded out of line Bridget was charged by James Cole. a colored boy, with being responsible for the boy's misfortune. He took sides with the boy and In doing so he went too far. He evidently forgot that Bridget was a woman, and for no apparent reason he dealt her a stunning blow in the face, drawing blood from her nose, and he also kicked her. Policeman Carlsson ap peared on the scene and arrested Cole, who was locked up for as'sault. When the case was, called In Judge Mills' court today the priscner plead not guilty and made a state ment in which he attempted to justify his conduct.

Steamer Richmond wIll leave same as BEFORE JUDGE SCOTT Minor Cwes Qiskly Settled fa the Police Oo0rt GOly One 'Representative of the Gentle Se. and She Gets a ine. "I've been In this place a whole lot of times," said Maggie Lee, a colored wo man, who was the only person in the fe males' cell this morning, "but never before have I had the whole cell to myself." "What's the matter this timer' she was asked. "Nothing much," she answered. "More than a year ago I had trouble with a girl, and had to leave town after I beat her. I thought it was all over, and so I came back. Then I went to work at Takoma, and when we met we had a cussin' match." "And did you strike her again?' "I never teched her. But I am going to let whisky alone now and keep out of trouble for one more year." Maggie was given a back seat when the prisoners were turned into the pen from the cells, but when Judge Scott appeared on the bench and court was opened her case was advanced, and she was first to appeaiaat the prison rail. There were only nineteen police victias in the cells, and fifteen of them were in Judgb Scott's procession. "I -don't know whether I cussed or no," she said when arraigned; "but I am guilty of saying two things. I told her that a man who had lived with me gave her epme groceries." When the judge questiened her she said she hsd been laying for Emma Foster. for three years to beat her because. she's living with her friend. "You will have to pay a fine of x5," said the judge. "That don't make no difference," said Maggie as she started back; "I'm detar mined to beat her before I die." William Patton, a small colored boy, plead guilty to a charge of jumping on -a cable car while the car was in motion. "You will have to pay a fine of 32," said the court. "If you keep up this practice 'zou'll get killed, and that will be worse than paying a fine." Smashed Things. John Reynolds, a citizen of Georgetown, who had indulged In some "red liquor" yesterday, represented his section of the city in the prccession. When he had drank what liquor he want ed, he started across the bridge, but be fore going over there he stopped at the of flee on the bridge long enough to paint the floor. "I was in the ofiee when he came along," said the bridgekeeper. "He beat the otfce with such force that he upset the Ink and smashed the looking glass." "Was he drunk?" Judge Scott asked. "I think he was," responded witness. "He acted very much as if he had been drliking." "With what did he beat the office' "With his fiat." "Was he disorderly or profane?' "No, sir; he only did the damage I Lt prisoner made a denial of the charge, but admitted that he slagped the side of the office while passing it. "Had you been drinking?' "Yes, sir." "So far as the breaking of the glass is concerned." said Judge Scott, "that Is only a question of damages, but you will have to pay a fine of $2 for being drunk." A little boy names Columbus Thomas, also from Georgetown, was in court for throw ing stones, and he admitted his guilt. "What made you do this?' "A man got after me." the little boy said. "and I threw two bricks at him In self de fense." "You should not take the law in your own hands," raid the judge, "and' you will have to pay a dollar a brick." "You are fined 32," said the bailiff, "can ycu pay the f5.e?' "I haven't any money or frierds heire" "Then you will have to step hack." And the little boy was' put In the dgee with the prisoners Instead of being given a seat outside until a friend senttis fine. Just Returned. Mike Garvey was in the toils as a va grant, and when arraigned he said: "I was drunk." "This man," said Policeman O'Brien, 'has been away, and eight days ago he return ed. He has been drunk every day, and when he begs about Washington Circle and is refused, - he curses the people who refuse him." "I've been working up in Pennsylvania," said the prisoner. "Why didn't you stay there?' the court asked. 'There's more room in Pennsylvania than there is here." He -was given thirty days. "rm guilty of being drunk, but not cus sin'," said a Georgetown colored man, named Edward Mason. The policeman told a different story. He said that Mason was drunk and pro fane, and gave him a great amount of trouble. "As you are a working man." said the judge, "I'll fine you only $2 or six days." Edward Whalen, a Georgetowneresldent, was in the procession on two charges. He was drinking yesterday, and when he got in- trouble with some boys he threw a stone and broke a window. Judge Scott listened to the man's expla nation. He did not remember all that hap pened, but his excuse was not a good one. Drinking whisky and throwing stones, the judge told him, was a bad combination, and fined him $10 of thirty days. Other Cases. Charles Wood, a young colored citizens ' appeared very tired when Deputy Clerk Harper called him to the rail to answer: a charge of.discrderly conduct. Charlie was to all appearances just getting ready for a morning nap, but when he heard his name called he jumped from his seat and said 'guilty." He had been arrested In South Washing ton, end the usual fine was Imposed. Daniel Robinson. a colored man from Anacostia, was In the procession because he had Indulged in some profanity In 'front of his home last nig) t. "I don't use no flame talk," said the- man, 'cause I belongs to church." Policeman Bra rson's evidence was con clusive. and the court fined him the usulal emount, 55 or fifteen days. Winston Allen, a colored boy from Rich nond, who says he trains race horses, was tried as a suspicious person. He waited ip front of a store on Pennsylvania avenue southeast yesterday while his companion event In and stole several dollars. His sentence was ten days on the farm.

AMUSEmENT. - Robert Downing.-The Grand Opera House will open for the season next Monday, and the initial attraction will be Sardou's trag edy, "Helena," presented by Robert Down Ing and his company. Mr. Downing secur ed this play at considerable cost, and has spared no expense to give it a fitting pre sentation. New scenery has been painted especially for it and the costumes will be elaborate and historically accurate. The title role will be played by Miss Eugenie Blair (Mrs. Downing) and Is said to be strongly drawn and within her particular line. Mr. Downing's part will afford him opportunity for the display of that heroic and virile type of man for which nature has peculiarly fitted him. His company is an unusually strong one and will adequate ly interpret the great French dramatist's work. Mr. Downing Is a Washingtonian, and this community Is proud of the hon orable record he has made upon the stage. His popularity here in his home is very great, and there is no doubt that the capac ity 'bf the Opera House will be tested siur Ing his engagement. Already great Interest has been excited In the coming production of "Helena," and many requests for seats have been made. The sale will open at the box office tomorrow morning. Miaco's City Club.-T. E. Miaco's Spec tacular Farce Comedy Company will be Manager Kernan's attraction for next week. The City Club Is one of the most popular and complete burlesque organiza tions on the road. This season Manager Miaco has been exceedingly lavish in ex penditure on costumes and scenery, every thing being new, rich and striking. The opening bairletta, "Tie City Club in Gay Paree," presents' a number of marvelous effects in stagecraft, both mechanical and electrical, the transformation scene being the most extravagant affair ever seen on a variety. stage. The olio which follows contains many new features, including the French eccentrics, Paula and Dika; Tom Nolen, the parody singer; Chas. V. Semon, the clever mimic; the Sisters Milburn, char acter change artists; Fred Bulls, the acro batic dancing wonder, and Harry Bryant and Carrie Fulton, the comedy duo.

The regular Thursday night trip of the steamer Macalester will take place tomor row evening, at 6:30, to Indian Head and Marshall Hall. As the season is now draw ing to a close, a great number of people ire taking advantage of these Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening trips to es .ape from the heat and glare of the -hot sity, and spend a brief period on the waters f the beautiful Potomac, and, as an evi lence that the trips are increasing -steadily n popularity, the fact is shown that sev eral times already the boat has -been com pelled,. by lack of space, to go and leave several hundred people standing on the wharf., The, regular Friday and turday vening trips will also be made thi~ week. The Samuel J. Pents will leave at 9:45 tomorrow morning for an all-day trip to 'hapel Point. The boat will stop at Alex andria at 10:15, and will arrive in Wash ngton about 10 o'clock at night. The fare for the round trip is twenty-five cents, and i large crowd is expected by the manage nent. It will be one of the most enjoy able family excursions of the season, and, is this will be one of the last trips to this ,eautiful place during the present time, :here is every likelihood that the prediction )f a crowd will be fulfilled. The greatest crowd in the history of darshall Hall left on the morning and ifternoon boats today to witness the tour ament, which I. being held at the Hall. 'he boats were crowded to their utmost :apacity, and it seemed impossible to carry t single person more without exceeding the langer limit. The crowd from this city and ntermediate points en route was aug nented by the people who live in the sur uounding-country about Marshall Hall, and who were on hand early to participate in md see the festivities of the day. They .ame by every conceivable fashion-riding, Iriving and walking-and With only one :bject in view-that of getting there and seeing their boys win the tournament. The tilting started at 12 o'clock, and the entries were numerous. The greatest enthusiasm r evailed, and each knight was cheered as he rode to take his position in line. chroeder's Orchestra furnished excellent nusic for the occasion, and added not a ittle to the enjoyment of the day. The iress ball, at which the crowning of the lueen and maids of honor will take place, will occur this evening, and will last until in early hour in the morning. A number f Washingtonians are expected down on he evening boats, which will leave at 5 and 1:45 p.m. L. Allison Wilmer delivered the )ration of the day, and his effort was a very happy one. Mr. Robert Crain will de iver the oration this evening in presenting the successful knights and announcing the :rowning. This coming Saturday will be the last one If the season at popular River View. It will be the last chance the little ones will have to spend the day at this beautiful place, as it will also be the- last family day If the season. The children are allowed to go for 10 cents on the two morning boats Saturday, together with t'heir parents and friends, and no effort is spared to enable them to have a good time. As this Is the last trip of the season, It is expebted that the grounds will hardly be large enough to hold the numbers who will probably take idvantage of the opportunity to enjoy an auting for almost nothing. Saturday will be the last tiip of the-Iron steamer Harry Randall to Chapel Point. r'hese trips on the fast-flying boat have teen very much enjoyed, and it is a sincere regret that they are to be brought to a :lose. Capt. Randall Is very much pleased with the support which he has recetv-ed in trying to make these trips pleasant and en loyable, and he has succeeded wonderfully well, and has made many thousands of !riends by his excellent management. Attemspted Burglary. An attempt was made by two colored nen to force an entrance into the store of 3eorge Gulick, corner of 1st and C streets southeast, about 1:30 o'clock this morn ng, but thcy were frightened away before iccomplishing their purpose by Night Watchman Alexander McKie, who has a lumber -of buildgs to look after In the teikhb~orhood. Mr. -McKie fired a revolver it the men, after fingling he could not cap Eure them in their act. but his shot failed to take effect. The would-be robbers left m large crowbar, which they had used In trying to get Into the building, behind them, and this was taken to the fifth pire i!nct station by Officer Rtyn, who was ittracted to the scene by the noise of the shooting. For Maintenance. A petition for maintenance has been filed my Rachel A, Beall, the wife of Charles Beall, in which the wife states that they vere married here July 28, 1836, six of Lheir eleven children still living. Mrs. Beall charges that her husband wrongfully leserted her In 1886, but allowed her for a time S;iQ a month. That amount, she says, mas been gradually reduced, until of late she has received but $15 a month, She :laims that her husband owns considerable property, and Insists that he should allow her a reasonable amount for her main tenance. The petition was presented to Judge McComas, who directed that the husband show cause why the petition should not be granted on the 8d of next AFFAIRS IN GEORGETOWN One of Ooref. Army Aareuted and Turned Over t6 the Maryland Anthoritiea Mr.. Wilmot's Attempted Suicide Right of-Way SeereS for the Great Falls R. R. Co.ay-Notes. A man unprepossesing In' appealance, ragged, unshaven end disagreeable-look ing all around, was brought to the station yesterday by Officer Murphy. The fellow, who gave his name as Joseph Newell, Is suspected of many pdtty robberies, all committed beyond the District line.- At the station he practically acknowledged his guilt. He had no right to work, he said, there were enough mules in the country to perform necessary labor. While he could get $4 or $5 -worth of goods daily, he didn't intend to overwork his muscles. His body vas given him to develop and make more like his Creator's-not to wear and tear away. He said that he was a remnant of the Coxey army, and had been "stag ging" it about the country since his advent last May. Newell being en offender who comes un der Maryland jurisdiction was turned over to Sheriff Green of Montgomery Bounty. He didn't seem to care much, -and- re marked that he wouldn't have to hustle now for food. It would be brought to him by the servants of the people, the prison attaches. A Right of Way Secured. The legal controversy that has been pending over the efforts of the Washington and Great Falls Railroad Company, repre sented by Stilson Hutchins and Jacob P. Clark, to secure a right of way through the Green Springs property, owined by Messrs. J. -B. McCaffrey and Wm. H. Ma nogue, was satisfactorily settled yesterday through an amicable agreement, legally bound, made in Mr. Manogue's- -office. Through the-agreement the injunction and all other proceedings now pending against the company-will be dismissed. The Wash ington and Great Falls Company purchased outright from the Green Springs owners 3,900 square: feet, paying for jt $2,250. As this sale, however, cut the itact'-In two, and would shut off the northers portion from the road, Mr. Manogue securedt in re turn from the Great Falls people an irre vokahle right-of way over the deeded piece. This preserves to the owners of the bal ance of the property the use of the, college branch, formerly used for milling purposes. An entire right of way, has now been se cured by the company from the George town to Great Falls terminus. There is a-big force at work on the road and an early completion is looked for. An Attempted Suicide. Shattered health and an impaired mind were the causes which induced Mrs. Ellen Wilmot to attempt suicide last night. Her effort,though, was discovered before a fatal ity resulted. Mrs. Wilmot selected lina ment as her agent. Only prompt attendance kept life open,' as to a woman of her dis crganized constitution a :whole bottle of the burning stuff taken internally. meant death. For some days hex'rhiasband has been watching her, and wsem- she disappeared from the room at abeetL9 o'clock, and he heard her a moment late violently vomit ing and groaning withipain, he rushed for the doctor, after a momeint of personal in vestigation. Drs. Ritdsitelnd Kleinschmidt came. They worked egt' and finally suc cessfully upon the wnmra. When seen last night Mrs. Wilmot could give no excuse for he- at. She said she 'knew not what made he drink the lina ment. She said, thoih;r'her health had been miserable since thetirth of 1ier last child. She has seven, e lhiren-alt small. Mr, Wilmot is a blachmutth by trade. No other cause than teseperary aberration could be assigned for the attempt. The linament takes contained si large proportion of aconite.

Rufus Choate of this- place. "Observations" are coming in already, even from distant states. Today Dr. Choate, as father of the movement, received a let ter from a North Carolina "observer," ad dressed to "The Revealer of Ancient Egyptian Astrology." Through these ob servations a heretofore unnoticed corre spondence in nature, the knowledge of which promises to be of vast importance to the world, will exhibit itself, the doctor says. Several of the observers are devot ing certain hours daily to an uninterrupted scrutiny of nature and correspondences. Notes. The special religious meetings at the Baptist Church in Tenleytown are still going on. Tuesday night Lawyer J. D. Habbick made - an earnest address. -He spoke on the healing of Blind Bartemus. Other addresses were made by Mr. John son, Mr. Nicholson and Mr. Hilton. The church was well filled with earnest listen ers. At the close of the meeting several seekers expressed a desire to be specially prayed for. The Misses Della and Katharine McGirr, -after a stay at Colonial Beach, have re turned to the city. To conform with the grade of the ex tended Washington and Georgetown tracks the District government has decided to raise the level of the sidewalks on upper M street fourteen inches. Weare Not Gypsies. it now transpires that -the band of syp posed gypsies who camped on Congress Heights, near .Ahacostia, a few days ago were nothing more, than some of the push cart venders from this city, who probably went over there because busIness was dull in the city. -When the police scattered the crowd, and drove them from there, they found a large pile of corn piled near where they had camped, and this corn, it is al leged, had been taken from a corufiold near by. Policemen Allen and Branson made an Investigation of the case, and the result was that last night they caused the arrest of five alleged members of the party .on a charge of malicious trespass. When the crowd had been frightened off the officers found that they had built a fire, and were cooking roasting ears and beef. The persons arrested gave' their names as John Kringeman, George Collis, John Schuyler, Penge Boppes and Peter Leo narde. Judge Mills heard the case today, and fined the defendants $5 or fifteen days each. IWeak an'd>Weary Because ofadepled ell ndition of the blood.

There was an unusually interesting and lively meeting of the Beaning Citizens' Association last evening, which was called to order by Vice President Mewshaw. Be sides a good number of members, several ladies were present to listen to the discus sion of the monthly topic, "'Mnual Train ing in the Public Schools." which waxed so warm that the chairman was compelled to call members to order several times. After roll-call and reading of minutes of last meeting the road committee made its report, which was accepted, and then the committee on education, through Mr. Mew shaw, reported that they had held a meet ing, at which it was ascertained, first, that the shop in which the boys and girls of Benning were being taught different trades, &c., was located about a mile from the school house; second, that one room in the school house was improperly heated in the winter time, and third, that the furniture in rooms where the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades are taught is of an antiquated pattern and wholly insuffi cient to accommodate the pupils. In view of the foregoing facts the committee recom mend that an addition be built to the pres ent school house of sufficient size to ac conmodate the manual training and the cooking and sewing schools, and that an additional stove be provided for Mrs. Voor hees' room, as well as new and sufficient furniture for the five higher grades. On motion of Mr. Clark the report was accept ed, the recommendations concurred in, and the committee authorized to go ahead and secure the needed improvements Mr. Broome of the auditing committee re ported having examined the books and found collections to the amount of $117, and on request the chairman granted the com mittee further time in which to complete its report.. The furniture committee was also granted another week. The secretary then read a communication from Mr. S. R. Hipeley, stating tlhat the lamps of the association had been turned over to Mr. N. Keyner, and on notion the comimittee was discharged. Under the head of good of the associa -tion the monthly topic for discussion, "Manual Training in the Public Schools," was taken up and very ably and forcibly discussed. Prof. Voorhees of the Benning School stated that it was the aim of these training schools to train the eye and the hand of the pupils. He said Washington was behind the other cities, but' rapidly catching up and perfecting its system. He cersured the parents of Benning for not visiting the schools and encouraging the teachers in their work. Mr. Mewshaw de livered an elaborate address, and was fol lowed by Mr. France, who opposed manual training in the public schools because, be thought, it an injury to trades unions. Prof. Voorhees said he thought trades unions were a curse to the country, and that assertion nearly precipitated a small r'ot; but matters were smoothed over, and finally, on motion, discussion of the topic was continued until next Tuesday evening, after which the meeting adjourned.

Rev. Mr. Davenport and His Wife Grateful for Many Kindnesses. Rev. W. - G. Davenport and Mrs. Daven port will sail from New York Saturday for blasgow, to bring home the remains of their son Dana, who, they are now sats fled, died there Sunday, July 21. The strange disappearance of young Mr. Daven port and the final report of his death in Scotland attracted much notice to the case and drew forth many expressions of sym pathy for the distressed parents. Rev. and I Mrs. Davenport on the eve of their de- . parture on their sad errand have prepared a statement expressing "to the many friends who have shown their sympathy 1 in words and acts of kindness to us, during the long weeks of our weary and anxious C waiting, our heartfelt gratitude. It has been impossible to reply," they say, "to the large number of letters received from iov Ing friends, near and far, but we assure h them that their words have been comfort- s ing and helpful. And their prayers have t been heard. We now know what became of our lost boy. We go to Glasgow to re move his remains, and see that they have proper burial. This will be the last loving office we can perform in this life for one who was endeared to very many by his generous nature and devout life." This morning the rite of the sacrament of the holy communion was administered by Mr. Davenport at his church in Ana costia in the presence of an unusually large congregation for a weekday service, all of whose sympathies and prayers Dr. and Mrs. Davenport will carry with them cn their sad jourrey. Dr. Davenport wrote to Bishop Paret of. the P. E. diocese of Maryland, who has general supervision of all the pulpits t-f the churches in the diocese while they may be vacant from any cause and ask ed him- to appoint a deacon to take his place during his absence, and it is gen erally believed that Bishop Paret will asi sign Rev. George Davenport, a son of the absent minister, and a promising preacher, to officiate during his father's absence. This appointment, if made, will, It is be-. lieved, give entire satisfaction to the con gregation worshiping at Emmanuel. AMU13EMENTS.
