Weary Wanderer Seeks Repose in Sea ton Park?Other Offenders. Edward Walsh, a man of middle age, ar rived here last night and being without funds and friends he found his way to Seaton Park and had retired for the night, when a park watchman appeared and plac ed him under arrest on a charge of trespass. "He had removed his shoes and had wrapped his coat around them, using-them for a pillow beneath a tree when I found him." the watchman told Judge Kimball, when Walsh appeared in court this morn ing. "What do you want to say?" the court asked the man. "Nothing," he answered. His honor, however, had something to say and it was "Five dollars or fifteen days." Policeman Witt last night found John Mead, an old soldier, wandering aimlessly around near the government printing office and took him into custody. When searched at the station house a razor was found In his possession and a charge of carrying a concealed weapon was lodged against him. He admitted his guilt to Judge Kimball aod the court gave him the privilege of pay ing a fine of $.Vi or spending ninety days on the farm as the equivalent. George Butler and James Evans, young colored men. had a misunderstanding last night while patronizing a clam cart at the corner of 25th and M streets northwest. Butler hurled a vinegar bottle at Evans, in | flictlng a painful wound on his head. De tective Potter, who was In that vicinity, placed Butler under arrest and sent the wounded man to the Emergency Hospital, where his injuries were dressed. He was unable to appear in court today and hear ing of the case was postponed until a later date. Horatio W. McGeorge. failed to appear In court to answer to a charge of working a lame horse, and his collateral of $10 was declared to be forfeited. Theodore Canada and Levi Hummer gave up $5 each on a similar charge. George Teachum and Harry Watson for feited $.'! and ?-!, respectively, for riding their bicycles on the wrong side of the street. For Maintenance. Proceedings for maintenance were Insti tuted today in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia by Annie M. Gleason, through Attorney W. H. Sholes, against James Glearon. Desertion of the wife by the husband is alleged. The petitioner also asks that the defendant be restrained from Interfering with her in any way or with her portion of the rents from certain property. A REBELLBON FOOD DEMANDED. The human body will stand a lot of abuse, but some time It will surely rebel and demand the proper f?>od in place of the pasty, starchy, greasy stuffs on which !t has been made sick. Then Is the time to feed Grape-Nuts, the most 1 scientific and perfect food in the world. A lady of Washington says: "Three years ago I was wry 111 with catarrh of the stomach and was given up to die by one doctor. 1 laid In bed four months and my stomach was so weak that 1 could not keep down medicine or hardly any kind of food and was so weak and emaciated after four mouths of this starvation that my daughter could eslly lift me from bed and put me In my chair. Hut weak as my stomach was. It accepted and relished and digested Grape-Nuts without any diffi culty the first time that wonderful food was tried. "My doctor told me that I would have to eat Grape-Nuts, which were predlgestod, and although 1 felt certain I could not keep the food on my stomach I had to make the trial and it was a most complete success. I am now atrong and In bettor health than for a great many years and aiu gradually growing still stronger. I rely on Grupe-Xuts for most of the nourishment that I get. The results have certainly been wonderful in my case and prove that no stomach is so weak It will not dtgcKt Grape-Nuts. "My baby got so fat from feeding on Grape-Nuts I was afraid I wc-uld have to stop feedlug them to him, but I guess It Is a healthy fat, for his health Is Just perfect."

'L ' I' A Ruling Wanted as to Who Are Includ ed in Law. ?f< Mr. E. W. W. Griffin,'acting assessor of the District, has asked ttie commissioners to obtain a more definite ruling from the corporation counsel as to the-term "build ing and other contractor*" iJn the new license law. This action was taken by the assessor in considering the application of F. S. Key Smith, attorney for J. Edward Chapman, for the return, of the license fee of $25 paid by Mr. Chapman^ under pro test. Mr. Chapman is a co?J dealer and paid the contract licence when informa tion had been filed against hjm in the Po lice Court. In reporting upon the appli cation for refund Mr. Griffin says the con tention of the applicant la that his busi ness is not that of a contractor, and that he is not amenable for license as such, the law not contemplating the imposition of an additional tax upon persons who pay a large personal tax upon their stock In trade, merely because they happen to fill a large contract order. Mr. Griffin adds: "If coal dealers are required to pay a contractor's license, why not all dealers In merchandise of every description, in cluding those who are required to pay a personal tax on their goods, wares and merchandise, as heavy purchases In any hardware, grocery, dry goods, shoe stores and all mercantile establishments often In volve contracts to proposed purchasers? It Is my Judgment -that the act of July 1. 1902. which recites building and other con tractors, should be construed to mean those whose main business is contracting, that Is, general contractors. The matter is sub mitted to the Commissioners with the rec ommendation that the views of the cor poration counsel be requested." The Commissioners have approved this recommendation. SIDEWALK OBSTRUCTIONS. Mr. West Calls Attention to Conditions on Louisiana Avenue. In approving an adverse report from the engineer department on an application by S. H. Walker for permission to place a bi cycle rack In front of 458 Louisiana avenue. Commissioner Henry L. West has made a very pointed indorsement with regard to the manner in which the authorities have al lowed the auctioneers and second-hand fur niture dealers to occupy the sidewalk space of Louisiana avenue between 6th and 7th streets. The Walker application for a bi cycle rack was disapproved on the ground that fhe rack would be an obstruction to travel. In recording his action fn the mat ter. Commissioner West says: "I have frequently approved adverse ac tion upon requests to occupy sidewalks for various purposes, on the ground that such occupation would create an obstruction to travel, and I agree with the above recom mendation In that respect as well as all the recommendations contained In the above Indorsement. At the same time, such ad verse action would seem to be incons'stent with the action of the Commissioners In allowing the whole square on the north side of Louisiana avenue between fith and 7th streets northwest, to be occupied by large collections of furniture and second hand material. I therefore move that the occupation of Ix>u!siana avenue for such purposes be made the subject of considera tion by the Commissioners." The question of this occupation of the sidewalk space on Louisiana avenue has been before the District board several times In past years, but no definite action has been taken. GAVE BAIL. Willard D.

A dispatch from Havana last night says: President Palma and his party returned here today from a tour of the Island, the last place of Importance that they visited being Matanzas. A large crowd assembled at the Havana station and also at the presi dential palace to witness their arrival. Commissions from all the political par ties. congress, the municipality and other bodies greeted the president at the palace, from the balcony of which President Palma addressed a large crowd. He said in the course of his speech that the stability of the republic rested on mutual affection. After making a tour of the island he was convinced that the republic was beloved of the people, and if any voice was raised against it that voice would be immediately stifled.

Loud cheers greeted the president's words. THE CLOSING SESSION. High Tent of Rechabites Elects Officers and Adjourns.
