RESPECT FOR DEAD PRESIDENT. Annual Convention of St. George's Inlon Postponed. Announcement has been received in thi3 city of the postponement of the nineteenth convention of the North America St. George's Union, which was to have been held in Philadelphia Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. The postponement was ordered out of respect for President McKinley. The North Amer ica St. George's Union is composed of Ca nadians, Anglo-Americans and citizens of the United States of British birth, banded together for benevolence only. The announcement of the postponement of the convention, sent out on official mourning paper, is as follows: "Brothers of the North America St. George's Union: "The President of the United States, distinguished, honored and beloved, has passid to his rest. "Not in the fullness of years, the work done and the harvest garnered, has he been called, but in the very meridian of his endeavor?noble, brilliant and success ful endeavor?he has been stricken down by the foul and traitorous hand of an as sassin. "And today the world stands hushed and stunned at the awful suddenness and utter wantonness of the crime.. "A cry of execration and horror has arisen from every tongue; from every peo ple a swelling wave of sympathy has come to the land of mourning. "It is meet, therefore, that we, brothers in affliction as in Mood, should put aside all that is festive and bow our heads in mutual sorrow and grief. "Your executive committee, therefore, in special session on the 14th instant, unani mously declared the nineteenth convention of the North America St. George's Union postponed until such time as they may hereafter determine, of which action due notice will be given." The notice was signed by Alfred R. Wig gan, president. Anaconda and Vicinity. The ringing of a loud burglar alarm, cries of burglars and the blowing of a police whistle aroused the community in the neighborhood of the residence of Mr. Charles Walsh, at Maple and Nichols ave nues, about 10 o'clock last night. Mr. and Mrs. Walsh had returned to their home but a short time when they were startled by the jangling of the electrical burglar alarm. Following the hurried summoning of the police to the scene, a large number of persons gathered about the house. Po lice Sergeant Anderson arrived soon after and made an investigation. One of the northeast windows of the house was dis covered raised, although the blinds vere closed. The members of the household were certain that they had secured all win dows before leaving earlier in the evening. It developed that tracks were Imprinted in the soft earth about the yard. Information reached here this morning of an encounter, a few nights iJnee, be tween Constable James Grimes of Oxon Hill district, Maryland, and an unknown colored offender, whom the officer was seeking to arrest, but who finally made his escape. The man assaulted the constable when the officer approached him. It is charged, and in the inelee that ensued. It is said, the constable knocked the fellow down three times. The struggle continuing. Con stable Grimes drew his revolver and fired twice, it is stated, but without effect. The colored man escaped through the woods. A small circus made its appearance sev eral days since at Oxon Hill, Md.( below Anacostia. and after the one tent had been erected citizens of the community turned out to witness the performance, which in cluded exhibitions usually seen in the side shows. Among those who attended were Constable James Grirms and Justice Wright, both of Oxon Hill district. When the performance was over the officers ac costed the proprietor, Samuel Dock, and requested him to produce his license for the entertainment. As he was unable to do so, he was brought for trial to the court of Justice Wright, who fined him $f>0 and costs. The sum was paid, and the fchow departed soon after. It is claimed that ex hibitions had been given in various parts of Maryland. One of the main trolley wires of the street car line between Anacostia and Con gress Heights broke and fell on Nichols avenue yesterday evening. Traffic on the line was interrupted for about an hour. Unworthy Enterprise. To the Editor of The Evening Star: In Wednesday's Star I read with great satisfaction (in an article on "The Presi dent's Church") these words of the Rev. Dr. Schick, pastor of the German Reformed Church, replying to those who were urging him to push the matter of enlarging the building to accommodate the increased at tendance assured by President Roosevelt's choice of that church as a place of wor ship: "I cajmot take advantage of the death of President McKinley to build up my church. The matter will have to take its regular course." What a noble reproof to his solicitors, who, indeed, but voiced a general disposition among men to seek quick profit from occasions of disaster! What a relief from the constant din of clamoring greed that has tortured our ears ever since the wires first flashed the news that I'resident McKinley was shot. The ut terance deserves to be urged upon the sober thought of all people. It is an expression of a mind that is truly delicate, refined, considerate, conscientious and noble. It puts to shame the conduct of many who, during recent days of sorrow, have greed ily grabbed at the opportunity to make gain from the terrible circumstances. Many people are vulture-like in their readiness to profit by public calamity or distress. They are quick to double or treble the usual charges for service or accommodations, e. g., hotels and traffic managers. Indeed, some lines of business, even ordinarily, thrive almost entirely upon the exigencies of others' miseries. True, not much of the best things may be expected of human na ture. But in an age whose boast is of su pt rior attainments In Intelligence and re finement, it is a positive pain to sensitive minds to be compelled to note conditions and conduct that would shame savagery itself?that are never known among sav ages. We should, therefore, rejoice that there are some such men as Dr. Schick and that the multitudes have appropriately mani fested slncerest sorrow at the tragic end ing of the life of our so greatly beloved President McKinley. We should also note with satisfaction the generous conduct of our leading business houses in closing on the funeral days, not only out of personal feeling, but to allow clerks and employes opportunity to participate in the general demonstration, even at great financial loss to the establishments. It would be Impracticable here to detail all the specific Instances descrying reproof on the other side. There are not a few in dividual cases. Indeed, some of the little things have been most irritating, because so obtrusively presented. For example, standing at the corner of 6th street and Pennsylvania avenue Monday night to join the multitude in the sorrowful reception of the lamented President's coffined body, my thoughts, tender with feeling and wishing for the stillness due the occasion, my ears were continually tormented by the flapping of vultures' wings and their harsh cries of "Get a badge here," "Souvenirs here, only flve cents," "Get a McKinley mourn ing badge," etc. This continued even while the hearse was passing. There, too, was the shrill whistle of the peanut roaster, too greedy to miss the opportunity to tor ment the ears of a crowd even at such a moment. And the vender, unmindful of the funeral presence, but thinking only of gain, distracted with importunities to buy "Freeh roasted peanuts, five cents a bag." And, surprisingly enough, some there were whose responses showed their thoughts to be in their palates more than upon the passing event, with its momentous historic meaning. Again, on Tuesday, while the funeral cor tege was moving along the avenue, not only were the badge peddlers plying their trade, but there came other vultures preying upon people's sympathies and curiosity by offer ing illustrated papers with sensational pic tures from an artist's Imagination of the deathbed, and so forth. Why, too, should the photograph purveyors be so very quick to thrust everywhere before our eyes the fact that they will sell us likenesses of the dead President? We all want such, but why should not the traffic phase be re strained, at least until the dead be burled? M E. SLOANE. Mary Budd. Mary Foreman and Emma Budd. all colored, were today charged In the Police Court with disorderly conduct on 5th street northwest last evening:. Judge Mills fined each $3, and In default of pay ment they went down to the farm for fif teen days. ALONG THE \RIVER FRONT COAST SURVEY STEAMER TO SERVE IX CHESAPEAKE BAY.
