BUkNER ACCUSED OF GRAND LARCENY.. Enters a Protest When Under Ex amination-Arranges to Give Bond for Appearance. Perrin H. Sumner, proprietor of the Home lunch room, at 717 11th street northwest, was arrested this morning by Detectives Baur and Muller and taken to police head quarters on a complaint that had been made against him in cornection with a money transaction. After Capt. Boardman and the detective had made an investigation of the complaint a charge of grand larceny was preferred against Sumner, and he ar ranged to give bond for his appearance. Mrs. Mildred Rice of 620 5th street north west is mentioned as complainant ih4 the case. It is alleged that she gave him $100 in a business transaction, and that Mrs. Saunders of 622 5th street had promised to let him have $50 tomorrow. Mrs. Rice al leges that she gave up her money for the purpose of purchasing an oven and to be come Sumner's partner in the baking busi ness. It is alleged by Mrs. Saunders that her $50 was to be invested in a business that would net her $000. Being neighbors the women discussed their business affairs and it was in this way that each learned of the other's dealings with Sumner. The defendant, it is alleged, advertised for women with money to invest. but Mrs. Rice and Mrs. Saunders met him through a friend. It is claimed that he made an offer of marriage to each woman. They discussed with each other their dealings with the man, and when they saw his pic ture in the Sunday issue of a New York paper they concluded they would call upon the police. Detective Baur made an inves tigation and a photograph of the keeper of the lunch room was obtained from the New York authorities. Denies the Charge. Sumner was found' at his place of busi ness this morning by the detectives. His son and daughter were there with him, and they had Attorney Carrington at head quarters about the time their father reached Captain Boardman's office. While in the office Sumner protested that he had done nothing wrong. He admitted, it is, said, that he had been arreste4 in New York for alleged swindling. Hd, said he was then the victim of others who used him as a tool, and that he was pardoned by the governor the last time he was in trouble. He was measured and photo graphed at headquarters this afternoon. Tomorrow he will be taken to the Police Court, and Judge Kimball will probably be called upon to pass upon the case. FOR CULTURE OF TEA. Secreta Wilson Wants to Know if He C Make Ten-Year Contract. Secretary Wilson of tlhe Department of Agriculture cently asked the controller of the treasu for an opinion upon the question wheth r be had the right and power to bind his successors in office to contracts regarding the culture of tea in the south. In addressing the question to Controllcr Tracewell, Secretary Wilson says: "A contract has been drawn, but it has not yet been executed, with one A. P. Bor den of Texas. I inciose a copy of this proposed contract for your inspection, and request that you advise me whether this instrument, if properly executed, will, in the event of Congress making appropria tions Lvailable for the purposes expressed therein, be binding upon myself and my successors during the full period of ten years. "If an agreement of this character is not binding upon the parties thereto, then this experiment must be abandoned. Neither the department nor Mr. Borden would care to make the necessary prepara tions and conduct the initiatory experi ments if there were any probability of an abrupt interruption of the work at any stage prior to a definite determination of tEe value of the testa being made." The controller, in response, expressed his doubt that he had the authority to decide such a question. He continues: "Without, therefore, attempting to make a decision with the idea of determining .he limit of your power to bind your suc cessors in matters of administration, I wi'l endeavor to state my reasons for believing that your power in the matter is in other respects open to question. "A contract such as you propose to make must be distinguished from a lease male under an annual appropriation, which re serves to the United States the right of renewal from year to year if other appro priations shall be made. These are recog nized by the courts and the accounting officers, not as contracts for more than a year, but as, in effect, new contracts under each renewal. "As a conclusion to this matter, it is my opinion that if you enter into tihe contract accompanying your question, and if Con gress, for any future year, should fail to appropriate specifically to pay the rent therein reserved, but on the contrary should repeat the language of the present appropriation, your successor in office would not be bound to pay the rent so re served out of said appropriation. In other words, you cannot contract so as to bind your successor in the use of an annual ap propriation unless such appropriation shows, on its face, that it is intended to be so used. The paymenit under such circum stances would be In pursuance of the ap propriationa and not under the contract. ."Further. the foregoing is a mere ex presion of my views and not a decistori. Te pregent appropriation is available to pay one year's rent, and succeeding appro priatione, if made, may or may not be so made as to compel the payment of the rent contracted for. Any doubts you may still have of the advisability of enter:ng into the contract should, in my judgment, be submitted to the Attorney General as a question of power to bind the government to pay, and not as to the use of appropria tions not yet made." HAVE RECOXE MORE riaurELan Trainmen Iimerent to Public Since Union Station 3111 Was Passed. "It seems to me that the railroad engi neers have become more careless in the matter of obstructing the street crossings since the passage of the union station bill," observed a passenger en a street car yester day when his oar was delayed at Virginia avenu'e and 7th street. The engine stopped directly on the crossing, for no apparent purpose other than to delay the electric car, the passenger thought, and he so stated. "This delay of five or ten minutes," an ether passenger volunteered, "is a matter of very little concern. One day last week the second car out of the barn in the morn ing was delayed thirty-eight minutes, but I heard nothing of a prosecution." "Grade crossings will be abolished during the course of three or four years." the first passenger suggested. "We've stood these inconveniences for so many years that we might just as well be patient with them now that relief is in sight." GOOD 1OR TOBACCO GROWEBS. The Comning beason Promise Excellent Results for Planters. "The coming season promises to be an exesient one for the tobacco growers of the south," maid Rebt. T. Parker of Charleston, U. C., at the New Willard Hotel this morn ing. "One can get a pretty good idea of the prices paid for leaf tobacco durtng the past sason from the remark of one grower, who said that he had received more money for his crop than his entire farm would have been worth several years ago. The demndn f or tobacco Is growing, for' In 1301 as [ag-inst $400,000 worth o1f Bour *U&8000 worth of tobacco was consumed.

The au dience was a large and distingptished one, and the program was interesting. The Ma rine Band occupied the stge and made a picturesque background during the song re cital of Mr. W. T. Carleton. The house was handsomely decorated with flags and streamers, and the employment of marines and soldiers in uniform in various capaci ties about the house added to the interest of the occasion. The amount realised must be gratifying to the ladies who had the af fair in charge, and will go far toward liqui dating the debt upon the club house for enlisted men that the league has purchased and Is maintaining. The entertainment opened with "The Star Spangled Banner" by the Marine Band, during the playing of which the vast gath ering rose and stood until the national an them was finished. Then came a song re cital of old English, Welsh and Irish songs by Mr. Carleton. each preceded by a few introductory remarks which were very hap pily made. Mr. Carleton is well known here, having frequently appeared in opera and concert, and for many years was at the head of his own opera company. It was the first time, however, he had ever been heard in a song recital and the liberal applause he received was evidence that the audience was satisfied with his perform ance. He possesses the same rich baritone voice that has often been heard here before, and he sang his different songs with taste and feeling. He was accompanied by Mr. Stanley Olmsted, who also played two piano numbers for which he was loudly ap plauded. At the conclusion of Mr. Carleton's reci tal the Marine Band played an excellent program. Mrs. Roosevelt and Miss Alice Roosevelt occupied a box with Colonel and Mrs. T. A. Bingham and Mrs. Cowles as their guests. Other box occupants were the admiral of the navy and Mrs. Dewey, the lieutenant general of the army and Mrs. Miles, the surgeon general and Mrs. Rixey, and Mrs. Shaw, wife bf the Secretary of the Treas ury. A CREDITABLE SHOWING. Comparatively Few of Higginson's Jackies Absent Without Leave. A report just received at the Navy De partment from Rear Admiral Higginson, commanding the battle ship squadron off Pensacola, Fla.; is of especial interest in view of the recent reports of wholesale de sertions from the North Atlantic squadron. Says Admiral Higginson: "I have the honor to report that during the last week, from March 1 to March 8, 2,370 men of the battle ship squadron have been granted liberty at this place, of which number fifty-seven remain absent over lib erty at the end of the week, a percentage of 2.4. This showing is most creditable, es pecially after several months spent in the West Indies, where very little liberty could be given. I have also heard from a number of citizens of Pensacola and through the newspapers at this place (Pensacola) of the marked sobriety and orderly conduct of the men while on shore." ST.AXEB MAY HAVE SUNK. Mysterious Signals Seen by Observers in 'Frisco Harbor. A dispatch from San Francisco yesterday says: Great mystery attaches to the disap pearance and identity of a steamer which is reported to have sent up signals of distress off Point Reyes last night, and which sud denly disappeared as if swallowed up by the sea. Just before her disappearance, the observers say, the steam siren of the dis tressed vessel sounded three long blasts and lanterns were swung on the port side in a frantic manner, indicating that great ex citement must have prevailed on board the vessel. To the watchers at the Point Reyes lighthouse. it looked as if those on board were preparing to disembark. Capt. Jorgensen of the lighthouse, with his men, launched a lifeboat and spent sev eral hours in the vicinity of the spot where the steamer is supposed to have gone down, but nothing to indicate a wreck was found. The steamer Columbia, from Portland, Oreg., arrived today, and her commander saw no wreckage or other indications that a vessel had gone to the bottom. The steamer Corona, from Eureka, Cal., signaled that she had passed there through immense quantities of wreckage at 3:30 o'clock this morning at a point about thirty miles southeast of Point Arena. Investiga tion indicates that this wreckage was a portion of the deckload of the steam schooner Alcatraz, from Greenwood Land ing, Cal., which was lost during a storm on the morning of March 8. The Alcatraz ar rived in port safely several days ago. The opinion about the merchants' exchange is that, while the Point Reyes people may have seen signals of some sort, these were not intended to indicate that the vessel was In great danger. Mr. Morgan in the City. Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan called at the White House yesterday afternoon and held a conference with the President. He was alone, and remained for about half an hour with Mr. Roosevelt. The nature of his call was not disclosed. Last night Mr. Morgan and his party took dinner at the Arlington Hotel, Senator Hanna and Miss Phelps, the latter's niece, being Mr. Morgan's guests. Announcement was made at the hotel that Mr. Morgan and his party would remain in Washington until today, and possibly until Saturday. Fruit Culture in Texas. "There Is considerable activity In Texas by the farmers who have decided to raise fruit," said D. G. Semmes of Austin to a Star man at the Raleigh this morning. "Large orchards are being planted and many of the business men are investing in the interests. Many thousand trees are be ing shipped into the state and the farmers are turning to fruit culture with a determi nation and a belief that "they will soon be able to make large sums of money out of the venture." Wisconsin Excited Over Iron Ore. "Many companies are being formed in Wisconsin- for t;he purpose of mining the iron ore that bhas recently developed in the ranges," said J. K. FrancIs of Milwaukee to a Star man at the Arlington this morn lng. -"There is great excitement ov'er the state becoming a great Iron producer and much money is being invested in the opera tions which It is believed will develop the industry. Prospectors from all over the country are coming into the state. Some of the farmers are selling -their plantations at three times the,* figure they would have brought several months ago, while others are selling options dependent upon the re suIt of the output of iron." Advertising 3Tniaanees. From Leslie's Weekly. It is highly gratifying to note that a movement is now In progress throughout the country looking to the abatement of bill board and poster advertising nuisances. The legislatures of New Yoria Pennsayl vania, Ohio and Illinois have measures un der consideration imposing various restric tions upon this kind of advertising; and a large number of miunicipalities, including Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington, Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany, have either adopted ordinance' having the same object In view or are proposing to do so. The ordinance proposed in Albany is one of the best that we have seen relating to this abuse, and It might well be adopted In other cities which are considering local' legislation of this character. It require. the advertiser or bill pouter who would set up a bill board, first, to secure perissioan from the comn missioner of public wrorks, and, secondly. to give a bond of t,U00 to indemnify the city against any emnages that it may in, cur by allowing the board to be erected.
