TRYING TO COMBINE
An Effort Being Made to Fight the
Caron-Parker Ticket.
10 Z TAM 10 I=1RAY
Rumors of Repeating Parties Being
Formed for Election Day.
NON-VOTING REPUBLICANS
With the primary election only two weeks
off the battle between the various repub
lican champions who are struggling for a
.chance to go to the St. Louis convention
is waxing hotter and hotter, and the time
intervening between now and settling day
will be characterized by even more vigor
ous oampaigning than the recent past. The
condition at present is more mixed up than
ever, and while the actual fight now in
progress seems to have for its slogan "Any
thing to beat Carson and Parker," there is
a very decided disinclination on the part
of the leaders of the forces which are
marching in time to it to withdraw and
consolidate on some two men. A confer
ence was held Saturday evening for the
purpose of considering means by which the
opposition to the Carson-Parker movement
might be made concrete, but the meeting
adjourned without definite action. It was
suggested that either L. M. Saunders or
Andrew Gleeson should retire, in order to
combine the entire vote upon one of the'n,
but each gentleman declared himself to be
equally as strong as the other, and the
tangle thus occasioned remains to be un
raveled. Those present at the gathering
were Robert H. Key, L. M. Saunders, W.
Calvin Chase, L. C. Bailey and Mr. Sypher,
who acted for Mr. Gleeson. Mr. Chase pro
posed, when the question of uniting on
some colored candidate was considered,
that Mr. L. C. Bailey be chosen as the
standard bearer, with Mr. Key as alter
nate, but this did -not seem satisfactory.
and like the other problem it remains un
solved.
Mr. Brooks Is Formidable.
The adherents of Rev. Walter H. Brooks
have adopted a plan in his favor which, if
successful, will make him a powerful fac
tor in the fight. It is their idea to secure
the united support of the colored ministers
for Mr. Brooks and to have them use their
influence with their congregations in his
behalf. It is understood that the lrooks
ticket will carry the name of Mr. L. M.
Saunders.
There were many meetings Saturday
night, and each night this we'k will see
such gatherings increase in pretty nearly
arithmetical progression. A Parker Club
was formed in the eighth district, with W.
H. Jordan president; 0. Gassaway, vice
presiden*; B. Taylor and W. BouldLni, sec
retaries; Charles Reed, treasurer; W. Fair,
chaplain. and W. Washington, sergeant-at
arms. In the tenth district a Bailey Club
was organized, with G. D. McCoy, presi
dent: T. E. McPherson, vice president; D.
F. Wallace, secretary; L. A. Tyler, ser
geant-at-arms, and J. H. Edelin, assistant.
The South Washington Citizens' League
also met and organized a Carson Club,
whose officers will be chosen at the next
meeting. Edward Odum and Col. Carson
addressed the gathering, and the latter de
clared that his confidence in his election
was such that if he didn't get 20,000 ma
jority he would move out of the District the
day after the election.
The various candidates are also busy se
lecting the names of the most faithful of
their henchmen to act as their representa
tives at the polls on elactlon day. At the
last meeting of the supervisors Col. Carson
moved that each candidate be allowed to
have one representative in each pollirg
place, and. it was so ordered, the candidates
being directed .to present their lists of
names to the board by January 20.
Raumors About Repeaters.
What seems to be troubling many of the
candidates is the rumor going around that
parties are already being formed by cer
tain persons for the purpose of starting
out early on election -lay afternoon and
visiting and voting at as many polling
places as possible before the polls close. It
is estimated that good pedestrians can vote
six times in the three hours the polls will
be open, while if they are provided with
car fare or carriages they can cover at
least a dozen districts. As there is nio law
here to punish repeating and no system of
registration to show where a voter lives, it
is feared that the method described will be
put in practice quite extensively.
Inquiry among the republicans in busi
ness here, and others who are men of ad
mitted position, develops very little inter
est In the campaign, an-d many of them
when questioned have expressed the de
termination not to exercise the voting
privilege at the primaries. Some of these
gentlemen say it would. be almost useless
for them to vote when such opportunity
exists for the nullification of their votes,
and when there are such a number of can
didates in the field that they would be
simply overwhelmed with a crowd of elec
tion workers before they got within a
sqtuare of the polls. This feeling Is not
apparently confined to a few of the class
mentioned, but appears to be generaL.
AGREES TO ARBITRATE.
Lord Salisbury's Reported Change in
Attitude.
-The London Daily News says that Lord
Salisbury has refvsed to agree to arbitra
tion of the Guiana boundary dispute on
the terms proposed by Venezuela, and has
also declined to recognize the request of
the United States to trsce a boundary, but
if the American commission define what in
their opinion the terms should be and if a
European power will then act as arbitra
tor all interests, It declares, would be satis
fied.
Mail Service to the Bahamnas.
An important chiange in the mail service
between the United States and the Baha
mas will soan be made by forwarding malls
after February 1 by the new steamship
line ranning between Palm Beach, Fia., and
Nassau. Mails will be taken three times
a week between these points. Heretofore
they have been forwarded from New York
on a fortnightly schedule.

CAPT. THOMAS AGAIN
He Questions the Statement. Made
by Mjor Powell
Tsk? EL'= C LIGHT ' Il?
What the Records of the Commis
sioners' Office Show.
A MIXTURE OF DATES
0
"I am not disposed to continue this contro
versy with Major Powell," said Capt.
Thomas to a Star reporter this morning. "It
was sought not by me, and his statement
was only replied to because he had wanton
ly, if not viciously, attacked the United
States Electric Lighting Company. Mr.
Powell in his interview of last Saturday
seems inclined to muddy the water. It is
not a question between Mr. Powell and my
self whether or not the United States Elec
tric Lighting Company neglected or refused
to occupy the territory north of the cities
of Washington and Georgetown with 1,000
poles, and with ninety odd miles of danger
ous overhead wire, upon the gratuitous sug
gestion of Mr. Powell, without warrant or
permit, and without an appropriation to this
day ever having been made for light out
side of the city of Washington by incandes
cent light. While it is true that the United
States Electric Lighting Company did re
fuse to make a bid, it was well aware at the
time the proposals were issued that there
never was a dollar appropriated for that
purpose, and that no effort had been made
by the Commissioners looking to that end,
save and. except an effort made by Major
Poweil last February to get ax) appropria
tion of $2.;0) for incandescent lighting for
the suburb known as Eckington. So much
for that point.
The Question Undisposed Of.
"The question raised by Mr. Powell's at
tack on the Upited States Electric Lighting
Company,which seemsundisposed of, is this:
Major Powell says in his former interview
that the permit was issued 'squarely and
honestly,' and that the United States Elec
tric Lighting Company, not having a prior
application before the office, was not un
fairly treated.
"In his interview of Saturday Mr. Powell
says I' substance that after the preliminary
effort on the part of the so-called Potomac
Light and Power Company, and random
lines run by them, a line was finally adopted
by themselves and by the Commissioners,
and that on the 12th day of November, 1895,
the permit was issued, 'and that represen
tative newspaper men having applied for
information about the permit, he directed
the permit clerk to show them all the papers
in the case.' (and, as his interview would so
indicate.) the newspapers having published
the issuance of the permit, the United
States Electric Lighting Company, two days
thereafter, with full knowledge of the per
mit having been issued, filed the application
in controversy.
'I stated n substance in my answer to
Mr. Powell that I Lad filed an application
on the 14th of November, 1895, for a pole
line cver a certain section north of this
city, and upon his objection to a certain
pcrtion of it I changed my request to that
,of a verbal application for a conduit; that
I had b3eard nothing from the application
till the appearance of Mr. Powell's inter
view. i also stated that from his inter
view it was sl'own that on the 4th day of
December he neld up my application, stat
ing that he would not issue a permit so
long as the question raised by the injunc
tion suit by the United States Electric
Lighting Company against the Comnis
sioners raising the question of their au
ti ority to grant a permit for a pole line,
with overhead wires, was not disposed of,
and that notwithstanding his statement
that lie would issue no permit, he did
upon Ahe return day of the injunction, and
only half an hcur before the calling of the
case, issue a permit to the Potomac Light
and Power Company, which permit had
been secretly iksued some time prior. Not
%ithetanding what Mr. Powell says in his
irterview of Saturday, I reiterate what I
slated, and will endeavor to prove my
statement by the record.
What the Records Show.
"The records of the Commissioners' of
fice show the following order:
"Dccenmber 10, 1895.-Ordered, That a per
mit be issued for an overhead electric line,
as requested by the Potomac Light and
Power Company in their application of the
6th instant, subject to modifications as to
route and to the location and character of
the poles as may be prescribed by the en
gineer department.
"Official order furnished engineer de
partment. By order of
tz.gnied) "tx. TINDALL, Secretary.
"The records of the engineer's office of the
District of Columbia show the following
permit issued December 10, 1895 (not as
Major Powell would have the public be
lieve, on the 12th day of November. nearly
a month pt ior to the real issue of the per
mit.) The permit is as follows:
'December 10th, 1895. Permission is here
by granted to the Potomac Electric Light
and Power Co. to erect poles and string
wires along the following roads, viz.: From
the intersection of Woodley road and
Klingle Ford road along Klingle Ford road
to Lowell street, thence to 16th street ex
tended, thence to Kenesaw street, thence
to Sherman avenue, thence ' to Blismarck
street, thence to 7th street, thence to Lin
coln street, thence to Gth street, thence to
College street, thence to Linden street,
thence to Elm street, thence to Le Droit
avenue, thence to T street, thence to South
Capitol street, thence to R street, thence to
Brentwood road.
"Also from the junction of Kenesaw
avenue and Sherman avenue to Whitney
avenue, eastward on that avenue to the
Soldiers' Home entrance.
"Poles between Klingle Ford road and R
street must be set straight, painted black
for a height of fifteen feet and white above
that, with cross arms not less than thirty
five feet above the level of the street. The
exact location of the poles shall be as
hereafter established by the street depart
ment of the District of Colurnbia.
"All poles to be used by the United States
and District of- Columbia governments free
of charge.
"By order of the Commissioners of the
District of Columbia.
"(Signed) H. M. WOODWARD,
"Permit Clerk District of Columbia.
"The Potomac Light and Power Co. ac
cept the above terms.
"(Signed) H. T. PURDY, Agent.
When Made Publie.
"And this permit was not given to the
newspapers of the city of Washington until
the 12th day of December, '1895, two days
thereafter, as the- filer of every newspaper
of the city of Washington will show. It
would be charitable to suppose that Maj.
Powell was mistaken In his dates, and that
he had read December 10 as November 12.
were it not for the very patent and labored
efi'ort on his part to show the fairness of
the transaction of the issuance of the per
mit to the Potomac Light and Power Comn
pany, on the ground that it was a mere se
quence to a long attempt on their part to

get a permit, and that the permit actually
did issue and notice of the sane actually
was given to the public two days before the
application of the United States Electr!c
Lighting Company was filed.
"*It is not unfair to charaeterise the state
meut of Maj. Powell, in the light of the
re ords of the ofticn, as a falsification of
the same."
