When the new building regulations are
completed it is believed they wI surpass
anything in the country in point of com

importance of the subject, and with a de
sire of getting the best possible results.
have appointed Mr. Daniel Curry and Build
ir.g Inspector Brady a committee to draft
a st of regulations to present to the board
o revision of the building regulations. Mr.
Curry was appointed because of his intimate
knowledge of building matters, having, for
the past six years, been editor of the
Building Register. At the present time
Mesors. Curry and Brady are considering
the matter, and within a week will present
thir amendments to the board of revision.

Heretofore' the great objection to the
building regulations In this city has been
their great e'astlcity. There were any num
ber of good regulations, but there was al

have been altogether too lenient in particu

trary to the regulations In some minor re
gaid, and upon application to the Commls
stoners -little trouble was experienced in
hav:ng the regulations changed to suit the
case. The new regulations will be so fram
ed that there will be no latitude. and build
ers will be required to live up to them.
As an Illustration of the Commissioners'
desire to get up a set of regulations that
will be as near perfect as possible, it need
only be stld that the board has been In

MR. AIKEN RETURNS.
The SupervIsing Architect i Back
From His Inspection Tour.
Mr. Aiken. the long-lost supervising archi
tect of the treasury, resumed his official
duties at the Treasury Department this
morning after an extended tour of inspec
tkcn of public buildings In western cities.
He has been gone about two months, and
changed his it:nerary at Portland, Ore.,
upon the receipt of a telegraphic Intima
tion from Secretary Carlisle that his pres
ence was urgently needed in Washington.
Don't Care About Criticism.
A Star reporter had a brief interview with
him this afternoon, and -found him in ex
ce'lent health and sp:rits. He said he didn't
care anything about the criticisms that had
been published about him during his ab
sence, and that he would not pay any at
tention to them. They did not hurt him.
he said, and if they pleased his critics, it
was all right.
- Will Only Resign if Called On.
As to the report that he contemplated
resigning his office, he said it had no other
fcundation than the wish of his enemies.
"If the Secretary wants my resignation
however," he added. "I will resign at once.
Otherwise, I shall continue in the perform
ance of my public duties as usual."
His Inspection Tour.
During his tour of inspection Mr. Aiken
visited nearly all of the cities where the
erection of public buildings is in contem
plation or in progress. At San Fran
cisco he madA a critical examination of the
site selected, and was entirely satisfied
with it. At Los Angeles he found urgent
need of greatly enlarged post office facil
Itles. During the winter the city is usually
crowded with transient people, who overtax
the present building and render at least
ore-third more space absolutely necessary.
It is probable that the attention of Con
gress will be called to the matter this win
ter. Mr. Aiken said that work would begin
this winter on at least five new buildings.
These are the post office buildings at Chi
cagp. San Francisco, Portland and Pueblo,
Colorado, and the mint building at Phila
ANOTHER EXCISE CASE.
Lively Fight On Over Harrison Flats
It seems to be quite the thing nowadays
for a man who desires to open a new bar
room to rent a flat and apply for the I

The last application before the excise
board is that of Charles E. Miller of the

The building was formerly occupied by the
pension office. but is now used as a flat.
In presenting his application for a bar
room license Mr. Miller inclosed a copy of
a lease he had entered into with the
owner, for ,a number of rooms. tending to
show that he proposed to use the bar
room in connection with a hotel within the
meaning of the law.
The filing of the application was the sig
nal for another fight, and the forces ar
rayed themselves against each other this
morning before the excise board at a pre
liminary bearing upon thr merits of the
case. A protest was presented from fif
teen residents in the flats, expressing their
belief that a bar room is not needed there
and urging, that the same be not granted.
Several signers of the application also
wrote letters to the excise board request
ing the withldrawal of their names from
the petition, and a protest from Mssrs.
Robert Ball and Hugh Lewis was recorded.

CALLED BAP1flIFAT& 11IES
Testimony an ' esult of the Trial
The trial of Celso Caesar Moreno, a well
known Italian-American, charged with
criminally libeling Baron Fava, the Italian
ambassador, was called up before Judge
Cole in Criminal Court No. 1 this morning.
An unusually large 'crowd was In at
tendance when District Attorney Birney
ar-rounced that be was ready to proceed,
and for a few moments they feared that
the trial would be postponed, Mr. Win. A.
Cook, ?n behalf of the defendant, asking- for
a brief continuance of the case.
Mr. Cook stated that he gad been but
recently engaged in the case, and had been
unable to secure the original indictment
or a copy of it for .examination. The in
dictment. he charged,. had been locked up
in the district attorney's olee. when, he
clalmed, it should have been in the clerk's
office. The defendant, too, said Mr. Cook,
had unsuccessfully endeavgred to see the
indictment or secure a copy of it. For those
reasons Mr. Cook nsked for a brief post
ponement of the triai. that the defendant's
defense might be priseerly prepared.
District Attorney itirney objected to any
pcstponement of the trial. The indictment
was returned, he explained. in July last,
and the defendant and his counsel had,
therefore, months in which to examine it
and prepare for his defense. During the
past two or three days, said Mr. Birney, he
had the indictment in his office for personal
examination. It was in no sense locked up
from the defendant or his counsel, and he.
therefore, thought no ground for a post
ponement of the trial had been urged.
Mr. Coojc said he had been Informed by
Mr. Young, the clerk of the court, that the
district attorney had the indictment, and
that he (Young) would not call it back from
the district attorney. Mr. Cook said he
was under no obligation to send to the dis
trict attorney's ofice for the indictment,
and, whatever might be said by Mr. Birney,
it was nevertheless true that it had been
kept fronm the defendant and his counsel.
Judge Cole thought that the district at
torney had merely done what he had a
right to do, and had put no obstacle in the
way of the defendant or his counsel. He
also remarked that no sufficient reason l'ad
been advanced for a postponement, a'd.
therefore, directed that the trial proceed.
The Olase Opened.
A jury was quickly called into the box
and sworn, although Mr. Cook declared
that they had been. sworn while he was en
gaged in reading -the indictment for the
first time, he th.ereby' being deprived of an
opportunity to -ehallenge them.
Judge Cole father ,sharply replied that
the jury had been called Into the box be
fore the open eyes of -the defendant and his
counsel, and, although the defendant and
his counsel had; therefore, been given due
notice, they had offtisd no objections. The
court. said Judge Cole, was, therefore, fully
lustified in believing. that no objection to
the swearing in of. -the jury were to be
made. He, therefore,- ruled that It was too
late to object and directed Mr. Birney to
prcceed. " *
Mr. Birney thenbriefly explained that for
the first time in the history of this country
a person was charged with criminally libel
ing - the diplomatic - representative of a
friendly power. The-article complained of.
he stated, was published in the Colored
Amerigan. a toal newspaper, and charged,
among other things, that Baron Fava had
been corruptly connected with the infamous
pcdroni system, and had been financially
benefited by the continuance of such sys
tem of slavery in this country. The article
also charged, said Mr. -Birney, that Baron
Fava had conspired with various Italian
consuls to this country to perpetuate such
system, while pretending, as the writer of
the article contended, to be doing all in his
power to destroy the system. The charges,
said Mr. Birney, were utterly and wholly
false and malicious, and he, therefore, con
fidently asked for a verdict of guilty.
The first witness called by District At
torney Birney was M. D. Cooper, who
stated that in November last he was the
publisher of the Colored American, a news
paper published here. He identified a copy
of the paper containing the alleged libelous
article, and stated that he received it from
Mr. Moreno, who represented to him that
the condition of the Italian immigrants in
this country was analogous to that of the
:olored slaves in this country previous to
their liberation. Op cross-examination, the
witness stated that the article was one of
ieveral handed to him by the defendant, but
!ould not say that he handed it to him
personally or merely left it at the office.
rhe article was signed by Mr. Moreno,
however. and he read the proof of it. Part
)f the copy, said the witness, was reprint.
but the greater part of it was in the hand
ariting of the defendant.
Detective Joseph. Mattingly, the next wit
riess, testified that he took a copy of the
iewspaper to the defendant early this year
and showed it to him, asking -him if he
wrote it. Mr. Moreno &epiled that he did.
Vhe defendant explained that he said much
mTore than the article contained before a
!ongressional committee, and inquired why
something had not been said abot his
tatements at that time. Mr. Moreno also
'xplained that what he had said and writ
ten was solely in the Interest of both the
[talian and American laboring classes.
Mr. Birney tben read the alleged libelous
erticie to the jury~and also read to them cer
sin correspondence beta'een Baron Fava

Freasury -urging this government to sup

Tihe Padront Systema.
Then the district attorney called to the
witness stand Alexander Oldrini, chief
agent of the Italian government at Ellis
Esiand, New York harbor, At the request
f Mr. Birney the- witnets, after stating
hat he had known Baron Fava for a nuns

lisappointment of the crowd in the court

Baron Fava as a *itness. Mr. Cook, how
var, stated that he would endeavor to se
;ure him as a witness for the defense, and
Lt his requet a subpoena was issued for
Baron Fava's attendance.
The Defense Opens.
Then, nt behalf of the defendant, Mr.
rook explained to the jury that Mr. Mo
-esno, in writing- the complained of article,
id so simply to protect the laboring classes
af both Italy and this country. No malice
,r wrongdoing had been intended by Mr.
Wioreno, he stated, who had no ill feeling
against Baron Fava, and had only intended
o'-repeat in the article what he had said
sefore a congressional investigating com
nittee. The prosecution of the defendant, a
nnat reputabie and highly raenected citi

Fava, but he was confident. that an Ameri

ments, and so immaterial did Mr. Birney
consider it that he declined to cross-ex
amine him. Mr. Cook then announced the
close of the defendant's case, explaining
that his subpoena for Baron Fava, the real
prosecutor in the case, he declared, had
been returned not found. Mr. Cook was
proceeding to criticise Baron Fava's de
parture from the city at this time, when.
on the objection of Mr. Birney, Judge Cole
stopped him, stating that the United States
and not Baron Fava had instituted the
Given to the Jury.
Mr. Birney offered to submit the case to
the jury without argument, but Mr. Cook
would not agree, and he and Mr. Birney
briefly addressed them. Judge Cole then
charged the jury'in a very few words. He
told them that the article in question was
a libelous one, and If the defendant wrote
it and published it or caused it to be writ
ten and published, he was guilty as in
dicted. They had nothing whatever to do
with the question of who the prosecuting
party was. The United States was that
party, and it had instituted the proceed
ings to protect one whose personal repu
tation, it was alleged, had been injured.
The jury retired at 2:13, and at 2:23 re
turced with a verdict of guilty as indicted.
Mr. Cook asked that the defendant be re
leased on ball, pending the disposition of a
motion for a new trial, of which he gave
notice, and asked that the former bond be
continued. Judge Cole, however, held that
a new bond should be given, and, at the
suggestion of Mr. Birney, increased the
bond from $1,000 to 3,000.
The defendant was then committed to the
custody of the marshal, while his attorneys
went out for a bondsman.
Two Pardons and One Commutation
of Sentence by the President.
The President has pardoned S. M. Dug
gins, convicted in Utah of adultery, whose
term of Imprisonment will expire next Jan
uary, and Charles S. Hartwig, convicted in
Illinois of mail robbery. The latter con
vict has served. his full sentence, and is
simply given the rights of citizenship. Ap
plications for pardon are denied in the
case of Edward J. Riley, convicted in the
Indian territory of larceny, and in the case
of P. J. Bannon, convicted in Oregon of
conspiracy to land Chinese,
In the case of J. H. Henderson of the
District of Columbia the President com
muted the sentence to eighteen months' ac
tual imprisonment. Henderson was con
victed of forgery and false pretenses, and
was sentenced July 28, 1804, to four years'
imprisonment in the Albany county peni
tentiary. "The commutation is granted,"
the President says, "upon the recommenda
tion of the judge who sentenced the
prisoner and the district attorney who
prosecuted him, and because of my
pity for his wife and child and aged father
and In the belief that the punishment which
will be suffered by the convict will prevent
evil doing on his part in the future and
answer the ends of justice."

years old, was found dead in bed at his
home, No. 10 Nallor's alley, vesterday. He
was seen alive about noon yestcrday and
before i o'clock he was found dead. As

In the Olmstead will case the greater
part of today was devoted to the opening
address to the jury of Mr. Henry E. Davis,
in reply to that made yesterday afternoon
by Mr. R. Ross Perry on behalf of Mrs.
Linda Hutchinson Webb.
As explained 'n yesterday's Star, the con
test is over the will of Mrs. Webb's sister,
Mrs. Katie Olmstead, the wife of Mr, John
F. Olmstead, and Mrs. Webb claims that the
will was procured through the undue influ
ence of Er. Olmstead, and that Mrs. Olin
stead was unable tp fully comprehend its
On the previous trial, something more
than a year ago, the case was fully re
ported in The Star, and it is expected that
the testimony at the present trial will not
materially differ from that given on the
first trIal. The first witness called today
was Mrs. Hutchinson, widow of Hay
ward M. Hutchinson, and mother of
Ers. Webb and Ers. Olmstead.
She was proceeding to testify as to the
alleged connection of Er. Olmstead with
lher husband's will when Judge Bradley, on
the objection of Er, Davis, ruled out that
line of testimony.

The drivers of the Anacostla Railroad
Company went on a strike at 2 o'clock thh
afternoon for the third time within a
period of about eight months. The action
was precipitated on account of the reccipt

WANTS A NEW TRIAL.
James Ray Not Satimled With His
Attorney Thomas C. Taylor this after
noon filed a motion for a new trial in the
case of James Ray, who was convicted
yesterday In Criminal Court No. 2 of re
ceiving stolen property. As stated in The
Star, a sensation was produced before the
case went to the jury, when District Attor
nelr Birney declared that the jury had been
tampered with and asked Judge Cox that
an Investigation be made. A new trial Is
asked on the following grounds:
Because the verdict was contrary to the
evidence and was contrary to law.
Because of improper conduct in the pres
ence of the jury and In the progress of the
trial hy the attorney for the United States
in charging in open court and in the pres
ence of the jury, substantially, that the
Jury herein had been bribed, approached
or tampered with by. or on behalf of .he
defendant, all of which said charge was
and Is without foundation.
Because the trial herein of defendant
was not by an impartial jury, in that one
Juror who sat in the trial of defendant
herein. G. B. Mickum, had formed and
expressed an opinion hostile to the de
fendant prior to the trial, and was dis
qualified as an impartial juror by reason of
bias against defendant, all of which was
unknown to defendant or his counsel until
after the verdict herein.
Because of newly discovered evidence.
In support of.the motion an'affidavit of
John D. Sullivan of 132 30th street, but
whose place of business Is corner of 13th
and G streets northwest, was filed, Mr.
Sullivan declares that at-out 10 a.m. Friday,

to him that he hoped he (Mickurp) would

Later In the day. Sullivan says, he saw
Mickum sitting in the case in question.
The Jarer ApproaeheL
It is understood that the Juror who is
alleged to have been approached, and who
notified the district attorney, was Douglass
P. Syphax, a young colored map. It is
also said that Syphax clims that he was
told he would be well paid if he would
hang the jury, should it appear that a
conviction was probable. One of the men
who approached Syphax is said to be a
colored man. well known about the Police
Court for a number of years as a runner
or go-between. Two other men are also
said to hav approached Syphax, and it is
understood that their names were com
municated to the other jurors.
Speaking of the matter today, District
Attorney Birney stated that he had not
yet had time in which to investigate the
charges, but would do so as soon as his
other duties permitted.
Importuat Decision by Judge Lynch
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
ROCKVILLE, October 29.-Judge John A,
Lynch of the circuit court came here yes
terday from Frederick for the purpose of
hearing the cases of Frederick W. Ritter,
Jr., and Wm. H. Allen of Washington
Grove. both of whom had appealed to the
court to have their names placed upon the
list of voters of this county. In the hearing
of the cases It was developed that the com
plainants were residents of the county at
Washington Grove, where they occupy cot
tages during the spring, summer and fall
months, afterward spending the winter in
Washington. That previous to leaving the
couniy for the winter they' had appeared be
fore the clerk of the circuit court and made
cath in due form of law that their absence
would be but temporary, and that they
cla.med a permanent residence In the coun
ty. This proceeding being in accordance
with the registration law of the state, they
made application to the officer of registra
ton for Gaithersburg district to be placed
tpon the lists as voters. The application
was refusel by that oflicer, and an appeal
was taken to the court. After hearing the
evidence and argument In the case, the
court ordered the officer of registration to
place the names on the list of voters. These
cases are s:milar to the one of Mr. B. H.
Warner of Kensington. which will probably
"come before the court Friday next. The de
c:5:0n in'these cases involves a new phase
in the registration law, as all appeals here
tofore made in this county have been made
by those who have been registered and
were afterward stricken off on the ground
that they .had forfeited their right to vote
by being absent from the county. This de
cision is regarded here as very important,
and involving the rights of a considerable
number of persons who have homes in the
county. but leave the seame for some months
in the year.
