BRNING DOWN CLUES
Detectives Trying to Solve Murder Mysteriesr WHOLE FORCE AT WORK Two Suspects Who Wern Arrested Succeed in Establishing Alis-, Searching the Sewer. Practically the entire detective force has been detailed on-the two resent mysterious murder cases, although most of the men are spending their time on the Gordon ave nue crime, which result-ed in the- death of Lasier Gosman. In the Hillsdale case the chances of suc cess were not near so bright an they were In the Gozman case, and although the de tectives were apparently an completely at sea this morning an ever, they -were still hopeful. ." Major Sylvester conferred with Captain Boardman thia morning and announced an increase In the reward to $300, the same as In the Jordan case. "The mur 'erers must be apprehended," Major Sylvester said. Capt. Eoardinan Directing. In order that the detectives may give their undivided attention to the cases, the chief directed that the ordinary work of the ofilce be turned over to the precinct de tectives, who will work at headquarters di rectly tinder the supervision of Captair Boardman. Several members of the de tective corps were out all night following supposed clues. For a short time yesterday afternoon Captain Boardman and the detectives were elated over the arrest of a colored man named Garfield Dorsey. This young col ored man had been seen coming along the road near Silver Spring. and the wounded condition of his face excited suspicion. A telephone message was sent to Captain Boardman. who had an officer meet the man and place him under arrest. There was a cut in the prisoner's face and there were blood stains on his clothing. He said be had received his injury by coming In contact with a barbed wire fence. A colored man who had told of having seen a man running from Gozman's store was. summoned to headquarters, and he was certain that Garfield Dorsey was the one he had seen. Captain Boardman hur ried detectives out to investigate Dorsey's movements. In a short time they accer tained that Dorsey received his injury in a fight in Virginia, and that he was not in the city at the time Gosman was murdcred. He was thereupon released. Another Suspect. Another suspect was pickbd up at Linden. Montgomery county. Md., yesterday. De tectives Horne and Hartigan went out there and found a colored man who had been burned about the face. He could not possi bly have had any connection with the case, and the detectives did not hold him. Detectives Hartigan and Miller worked all night on a clue which promised to avail them something. They had received In formation concerning two colored men who had been seen under alleged suspiclous cir cumstances. and this morning about 5 they found them In bed. One of them had an ugly wound on his face, and his statements to friends and others as to how he had been injured, the detectives found, were untrue. The man explained matters to the satisfaction of the officers and escaped being imprisoned. He had been cut during a row at a ball and had received hospital treatment. In order to conceal his identity the man gave a ficti tious name and said he had been assaulted In 7th street. Sewer Department Enlisted. Members of the newer department were enlist7d this morning in the hunt for evi dence. They made an early start, under the supervision of Detectives Tyser and Trumbo, to search the sewers. It Is regard ed as certain that the murderer's clothes were badly bloodstained when he left the Goiman store. It is natural to suppose that he was anxious to get rid of the gar ments. and that he may have thrown them in a newer. Such a search was made at the time the fatal assault was committed upon Mrs. Dennis, and some garments found. Unfor tunately in that case the police were unable to find the owners of the garments. Some cast-off garments picked up in the street were sent to police headquarters last night. They are being examined today for blood stains, and the detectives are also trying to find the owners, During the in vestigation of the case the detectives have found a number of colored men who re eently received wounds, and in each case the wounded man has been called upon for an explanation. Coroner Nevltt this afternoon decided to hold the inquest at the sixth precinct po lice station Monday morning at 11 o'clock, and the poliee have summoned witnesses in the affal. to be on hand at that hour. The Jordan Kurder. Nothing has been learned by the police which will throw any light on the Hillsdale murder mystery, and the crime committed ten days ago seems no nearer a solution now than it did the morning after Mrs. Catherine Jordan was so foully murdered. The detectives have been unable to give the case much attention since the murder of LazIer Goiman, but the Anacostia police have been working industriously to solve the mystery. While diothing definite in known concerning the murderer's Identity, the police are of the opinion that he did not belong about Anacostia or Hilladale. Had he lived In that section, it is pointed out, the three women who saw him when he passed Mrn. Bundy's house would prob ably have recognized him. On the other hand, some doubt is expressed an to their ability to have recognized anybody at that time of the night. The women declare they got a good look at the manc.however, and are certain they will be able to identify him. Interest is centered In the Identity of the man who called at Mrs. Jordan's house the Sunday ntight previous to the night of the fatal attack. This man, as heretofore stated, claimed that the police were after him for carrying concealed weapons and asked the woman to protect him. Even after she had refused him protection he loitered about the premises and frightened the occupant of the house. Why he wanted to kill the woman is, of course, a matter of conjecture. Revenge is the only motive the police can attribute, lurniahed Charmns. It is stated that most of the patrons of Mrs. ,Jordan as fortune teller were women. She had furnished "conjuration" powders to some of them and "sprinkling" fluid to ethers. 'Charms" had also been furnished, It is to be presumed, the police say, that some of the husbands of the Hilisdale wo manl's patrons were angered at the mis chief she caused, or they mayhave believed themselves under her "spell." Victims of such people and "voodoo" doctors frequent ly believe that the only way to have such a "spell" removed is to- accomplish the death et the "voodoo" or "'second-saghted" woman or man, as the case may be. Detectives Muller and Cornwell, who went away to Investigate supposed clues in the case, have returned home. The former went to Cuipeper, Va., and the latter to Huntersville, Nd. Neither discovered any thing of assistance In the case. At Hun tersvilile there was a suspect, who proVed to be a resident of the adjoining county. He wan there spending the Christmas holi days with a friend. Detective Muller found people in Virginia who knew of Mrs. Jordan, but they were of me assistance to hima whatever. Today the Anaacostia police are looking for a colored man who is reported to lhave been mimi.ng f.om the section of the -District-acrns the Easternt branch face'about the time thse murder was eessinitted.

Secretary Root today announced that the corner stone of the Army War College in r the Washington barracks reservation will 3 be laid with appropriate ceremonies on the 9 22d Instant. The details of the program v have not yet been arranged, but the Ma- a sonic rites usual to such occasions will be t) observed.

Sites have been reserved far: these statues, but the assignments are still' under consideration. Probably the first one c to be put Into position will be that of Fred-' t erick the Great, which is approaching com pletion at Berlin. President Roosevelt noti t fled Prince Henry of Prussia on the occasion m of his visit to Washington of his acceptance a of that statue and said it would be erected a near the site of the Army War College. a According to a press dispatch from Ber- a lin, Emperor William, In receiving the New Year congratulations of the foreign ambas- t sadors yesterday, said to Ambassador r Tower that In selecting the commission to t take the statue of Frederick the Great to I1 the United States he intended to include I In it descendants of German ofilcers who 2 had fought under Washington. I . Pleased With Bite Chosen. His majesty remarked that the p'.acing t of the statue In the new war college was a t happy suggestion, especially as he under stood that the statues of other famous com manders who belonged to all the world and t to all time would also be erected there. C It having been mentioned to the emperor 8 by a member of the court that Ambassador 8 Tower would probably go to Washington at the time of the presentation of the statue d to assist in receiving the German commis- I sion, the emperor said that the ambassa- a dor's presence upon that occasion would be a a compliment to Germany and that he b hoped Mr. Tower would be there.

I voted for the pooner amendment. The government .is rying to get the rights for bulding and E 3ntrolling a ca.nal at Panama according to m le authority granted in that act.

In the Baltimore and Ohio gards ths morning ther were fft- car of anthracite 'an* fty-fte cars of bitUmi noun coal waiting to be unloaded. Another train of thirty or por cars twas ezpcted to arrive later in the day. The Pennsyl vania brought inr the 1ustmi-upply of both kinds today. The situation -at the steamboat wharves is much- lees trained'tha - it has been for the past two or three weeks. The leamers are receiving daily a little more than enough to keep them running, and a small surplus, enough to ruff tuem a trip or two. should -the daily supply fal; is being cog lectad. The greater -par( of the soft coal now being used by' the "seamnbpsts is coming from. the Pocahonta"'region Ii Virginih. No coal is coming here by canal, as that waterwa*y has been closed fo' the winter. The big tug Chesapeake came into port yesterday with the barge Sharon Hill. laden, it is said. -with about 700 tons of hard coal, in tow. The Sharon Hil is the barge which was reported lost at sea, but which finally arrived at Norfolk. Coal- has been arriving of -late in good quantities at Anacostia. The .coal reaches Anacostia over the freight line of the Bal timore and Ohio railroad. The demand has been very great, the local dealers being Im portuned by requests from the city from persons unable to secufe it there. Dealers have not been storing any of the toal in .their yards, but instead have been busily- engaged in hauling it directly from the cars to the consumers. As much as a ton of coal has been dis posed of by dealers to Individuals, although the general sale is in half-ton and quarter ton. quanuties. The quick arrival of the coal, however, hal pnade it possible for the persons whose small stock was being de pleted to renew it from the dealera without much inconvenience. At a meeting of the citizens' committee at the Riggs House this evening a report of the subcommittee Investigating the question of transportation will be heard, and it is expected that something definite will be made known about the outlook for an average fuel supply, It is thought that the committee will be able to report about its work tonight, although additional time may have to be given in order that an swers may be received from the mine oper atoib and transportation companies.

Dr. Blake comes to this city from Akron, Ohio, where he has been rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church. during the past four years. Reports from the press of Akron are to the effect that Dr. Blake's proposed departure from that city has occasioned great regret among the members of St. Paul's parish and also among his friends outside .the church in that city. He preached his farewell sermon to the con gregation last Sunday, and the edifice was filled to overflowing. In the course of his sermon Dr. Blake mentioned that while he had been rector of St. PauFs Church 115 persons had been presented to the bishop for the apostolic rite of confirmation and 117 persons had been received into the church. - -He also stated that- while he had been.r.ector of the congregation he had conducted 1,500 services. and delivered more than. 1,000 addresses. The members of the iestry of St. Paul's Church in Akron at a recent meeting adopted resolutions relative to the depart ure from the city of Dr. Blake. The ves trymen speak In high terms of his fidelity, regularity and devotion to his work and calling while rector of the parish, and also of the high regard in which he is held by his jrishioners. His churchmanship Is characterized as "loyal, enlightening and sensible." In referring to Dr. Blake personally the resolutions are to the effect that. "As a man among men, he has a character dis tinguished for fine manliness. His stand ing in this coinmunity is high, his living above reproach and his reputation is se cure. We find in his life a living proof of the creed he .taught from his pulpit. His many friends outside of the Immediate cir cle of the church. ive ample evidence not only of his Christian character, but of those genial and attractive qualities that make us all 'brother me. The resolutions close with best wishes for Dr. Blake's success in his new field, and. wah congratulations to Christ Church, Georgetown, on securing him'as its rector. Dr. Blake is a brother of Mrs. R. C. Glascock of 1242 12th street northwest, this city. He was born In Annapolis,, Md., about forty-five years ago and is a gradu ate of several colleges.

His family consists of .his wife and four childrep two daughters and two sons. Elaborate arrangements are being made by the mem bers of Christ Church for his installation as rector. Patent Laws of the Transvaal. In the current issue of the Patent Offiee Gazette the full text of the patent laws of the Transvaal under British government is printed. This is the first time these laws have been pririted in the United States, and will be of interest to inventors and patent attorneys throughout the country. The Transvaai Republic and Orange Free State both had codes of-patent law that were in many respects similar. When these two states were combined under British domin ion it was a matter of some moment to in ventors and owners of inventions to have the patent law of the country firmly estab lished. Great quantities of machinery are used in South Africa for farming, mining and other purposes, and it was necessary that the law should be quickly promnulgated In order to afford these inventions ample p rotection. Under the direction of Lord lner a code of patent law has been com piled by combining the best features of the laws which previously existed with that which is operative in Engln and other British possessions. The new law also in cludes a trade-mark and design settion. -eastal Guide andi Direetol'y, The new posa guide for 19S was dis tributed throughout the Poet O~loe ~De partment today.

The three will all be reeabloan In politico, though two of the departing senators now I sit on the democratic side of the Senate chamber. In Oregon there will be no change in politics, but the factional struggles in the republican party there have always been warm and sometimem exceedingly tropical. S Senator Joseph Simon. who Is an bright and pleasant as he is unassuming. a good lawyer' and a shrowi political leader. doeS 1 not expect to return to the Senate, but will 1 soon, -in all probability, become once more it the ruling power in Multnomah county.

In Idaho. Idaho astonished both parties by her large 11 republican 'majority, and Senator Henry Heltfeld, who has won the liking and re spect of all by his honest common sense and if geniality, will, a twentieth century Cincin- n natus, return to his farm. There are many V who think they hear a call summoning P them to serve their country, but three of b the candidates seem to be particularly prom inent. Former Senator George L. Shoup, c pioneer and-Indian fighter, who came to the ] Senate in 1889 upon the admission of Idaho , as a state and served twelve years, until the end of the Fifty-sixth Congress, In more than wlling. after two years' rest, to again V don the toga. He has many friends and 1 b a formidable candidate. Mr. Borah, a lead- C t Ing lawyer of Boise. is said to have a strong following !n the legislature and cutside of it, but the "Pan Handle," or northern Idaho, Is claiming a right to representation In the Senate, and its candidate Is Judge W. B. 3 Heyburn of Osborne, in the Couer d'Alene p C mining district, where he is a prominent mining lawyer. In 1898 he made a "sacrifice t hit" with a strong but hopeless campaign t for Congress on the republican ticket. The Contest in Washington. o In Washington the republicans have 115 of the 'I86 members of the legislature, which will meet January 12, thus giving a republi- l can successor to Senator George Turner. n Had the democrats elected a majority only n one ballot would have been needed, for Sen si ator Turner has proved himself one of the li strong men of the Senate, in which his a fine legal mind, his able speeches and pleas- 0 ant personality have gained for him the s respect and frienehip of both sides of the P chamber. His popularity In his own state is so great that with an election of a senator by popu lar vote it is by no means improbable that he might have been elected, In spite of the ' 25,000 majority for the republican congress men; for, in 100, with a majority of 12,000 c for McKinley, Govern9r .Rogers, whose re- b lomination was largely due to Senator Tur- l ner's Influence, was re-elected by over 2,000 a majority. .n The death of Governor Rogers early last year tis helped to complicate the sena torial fight now impending, for Lieutenant n Governor McBrida is a republican and as governor is strongly advocating a state rail- h road commitsion. His candidate for the 0 Senate is Harold Preston, a bright lawyer a of Seattle, who was a bad third in the race for the Senate before the death of Gover- 9 nor Rogers, but now is supposed to have the second largest number of votes for the u place. Former Senator John L. Wilson of Spokane is again a candidate with about a dozen votes with which to start, but he can control his followers and may be able to do p nMuoh should all factions stand firm, as he r did in 180 when he delivered his votes to a Senator Foster. Mr. Preston's strength rep resents his personal friends, the desire to elect a. Seattle man, and the anti-railroad contingent, so that they are not so easily to - be held In line for any one man. - Votes Pledged to Ankeny. 81 The largest number of republican votes C is probably pledged- to Mr. ,LevI Ankeny, a wealthy banker of Walla Walla, who has A twice before been a strong candidate for A the Senate, and who has the experience, A acquired in previous contests, which Mr. A Preston lacks. The probability, at present, A Is that Mr. Ankeny will be successful, for A the influence of the transcontinental roads A has'always domhkated the republican party A in the territory and state of Washington, f B and Mr. Ankeny and Mr. Wilson are both "railroad men." The democrats would naturally be dis- (' Posed to support Governor McBride in his c efforts for a railroad- commission, in which C he Wrill be opposed by many, if not most, of C the republicans, but if they follow the e. advice of Senator Turner they will keep out C of the senatorial contest in the republican O ranks. If 'Mr. Ankeny fails to be elected C on an. early ballot, the result Is uncertain, ~ for the Wilson men will not go to Mr. Ant- ~ keny, tior the Ankeny men to Mr. Wilson, g and few of either to an anti-railroad man, u so that it may then end in a deadlock, as Ei In 180e, with a vacant chair in the Senate.
