To the Editor of The Evening Star: I cannot but think that there was a gross lack of vigilance on the part of the polled and detectives at the time our beloved President was shot down. It seems that they were Intently watching a man who, to them, looked suspicious, when, to my mind, there was immediately in his rear, a cir cumstance of wonderfully great suspicion, a man with his hand covered. Is it not strange that those experienced detectives did not ascertain why that hand was cov ered, and whether It did not hold a bomb, pistol, dagger, infernal machine or some other murderous weapon before they al lowed him to approach the President? I think that a hand so muoh covered that It really did conceal a revolver warranted in vestigation. Certainly the colored man who by his prompt and vigorous action prevent ed the third, and which might have been fatal, bullet is entitled to much credit. LORING CHAPPEL. Long Contest Over a Street Washer. An alleged defective street washer in ths sidewalk in front of 2084 17th street north west has been the cause of considerable correspondence between Alexander H. Brooks, owner of the premises, and ths District Commissioners. It appears that a cement sidewalk was laid In front of the property in question in the fall of 1807. At that time the District workmen, asserting that the washer was defective, removed it in accordance with practice. Under date of August 28 of the present year Mr. Brooks protest* d to the Commissioners agsInst the removal. The Commissioners today ap proved a final report made upon the case by C. B. Hunt, the computing engineei. Mr. Hunt is satisfied that the regular and proper course was followed at the time; that the plumbing appurtenance defec tive and removed for reason, and, if the contrary Is now asserted, it is believed that the writer has forfeited any equitable grounds for redress by the long postpone ment of his presentation of his claims. Reed aad Wellington I* Contrast. To the Editor of The Kooning Star: Look at the contrast between ex-Speaker Reed and the man Wellington?I dislike to dignify such a person with the title sena tor?concerning the attempt on Pres-dent McKinley's life. Reed's animosities are as much stronger than Wellington's, probably, as his mind and body and soul are bigger than those of the Maryland pigmy. Reed had ten times greater cause of resentnwnt against Mr. McKinley, as resentments po. than Wellington; but while the ex-8j>enk' r gives expression to the warmest hope for the President's speedy recovery, thv? man Wellington snarls his indifference. The difference between the two men Is as that of a somewhat surly mastiff, at times, and a mongrel cur dog. H. M. S. 8?RRe*(* a Day for Prayer. Thomas H. Looker has written to the District Commissioners recommending th^t they set apart a day for prayer for the re covery of the President. He calls attention to the fact that the governor of Maryland and the mayor of Baltimore have set aside a day for the purpose, and says that doubt ! less other states and cities will do likewise. School House Contract Extended. The District Commissioners have granted an extension of the contract with Pavarinl & Greer for the construction of the school building at 12th and D streets northeast. The school wae to have been completed September U, but will not now be turned over to the District authorities until No vember 9. The extension was granted be - cause of the failure of the District authori ties to turn the lot over to the contractors until two months after the contract had been Blgned. Will Appeal All Law Qarillono. The suit of Dr. LeRoy R. Stoddard to compel the trustees of the Homeopathic Hospital Association of this city to show cause why his patients should not be ad mitted to th*t Institution, came up before Justice Anderson, sitting in Equity Court No. 1, this morning, on a motion made by Mr. Douglass, attorney for Dr. Stoddard, to have the corporation made a party to the suit also. Mr. Blrney, counsel for the trustees, indicated that he would take an appeal on all questions of law. For this reason the motion was not pressed by At torney Douglass, who stated that It was his desire to avoid all technicalities and bring the matter to direct issue as soon as possible. For this reason the case was temporarily laid aside. Two Salts for Divorce. On the ground of alleged desertion and infidelity, William H. Despot has petitioned the Supreme Court of the District of Co lumbia to grant him a divorce from Birdie Despot. Helen H. Blsbee has filed suit to sec-jre a divorce from Eugene S. Bisbee, alleging infidelity on the part of the latter. James Butler, a colored boy. aged seven teen years, was today convicted in the Po llc% Court of the larceny of a small sum of money from James Dally, and Judge O'Donnell fined him $20, with sixty days in jail as the equivalent. married.
