Structure to Accommodate 800 Stu dents*s*-Arrangements Made for Enlarging Facilities. The officials of the District building de- j partment have Just completed their review of the plans and specifications for the pro posed new Business High School, and the specifications will be ready for the printer within a day or two. It is understood the District will soon begin advertising for bids for the construction of the new build ing, and that the contract for erecting the structure will be awarded about the 1st of March. The specifications will require that the building shall be completed within eighteen months after the award of the contract. Hence, it is expected that work will begin immediately after the letting of the con tract for its construction, and that it will be finished about the latter part of 1905. The new building, together with the sur rounding parking, will occupy all of north square 39G, bounded by 8th and !>th streets and Rhode Island avenue and R street. The appropriation for the structure is $168,000, and it is believed that praetically all of that amount will be used in the construc tion. Mr. B. Stanley Simmons of this city is the NO CLUE FOUND YET BEDFORD OFFICIALS HUNTING MISS SCHAFER'S MURDERER. Joseph Heitger Makes Statement Re garding Mention of His Name in the Case. A dispatch from Bedford, Ind., last night sayB: Detectives at work on the mystery of the murder of Miss Sarah Schafer, teacher of Latin in the Bedford schools, believe that they have established a mo tive for the crime. They are satisfied that the tall man in the long overcoat that was seen lurking in the vicinity of the Johnson house is the murderer, and that the man is the one who was annoying Miss Schafer. The police believe that this man was enamored of Miss Schafer, and that she had repulsed him. Brooding over his pas sion for the young woman, determined to have an interview with her, the police think the man liad made up his njind to kill her if sha again resented his ad vances and watched for her as she left the Johnson boarding house. He kept on the opi>oslte side of the street until Capt. Alexander had entered the Windstandley House and then overtook her at 14th and L streets. What Heitger Says. At Bloomington, Ind., today Joseph Heitger, whose name has been mentioned in connection with that of Sarah Schafer, called on a representative of the Indian apolis News and stated that the talk that he was in any way connected with Miss Schafer is absolutely false. "You may say," said Heitger, "that I met Miss Schafer only once. I never was at her house to call on her. I talked to her only in the ptesence of Miss Knox, and we talked of George Shaw and James Dodd, two Elkhart boys whom she knew. I never wrote a word to her in my life, nor received a word from her, and have hardly spoken to her since Thanksgiving night, when I met her at the basket ball game. I will return to Bedford at once and would not be here now had I known of such suspicion. Heitger is a member of a prominent Bedford family, a college graduate and an athlete. During his examination by the officials Saturday Heltgar said that on the even ing of the murder he left the home of his father, Joseph C. Heitger, at ?:4."i o'clock. He arrived at the old library building on 14th between J and K streets before any of the basket ball players, whom he coach ed. arrived. He said he believed he was there a few minutes after 7 o'clock. None of the players was positive at what minute arter 7 they arrived. Heitger declared he left the building some time near 8 o'clock, going to his home at once and. changing his clothes, kept an evening engagement. Chief Russell Gathering Information. A dispatch from Ijouisville, Ky., says: Chief of Police M. C. Russell and 8heriff Smith of Bedford, Ind., in company with former Chief Jacob Haager of the Louis ville police, had a conference here today with a woman who two days ago notified the Bedford police that she could probably throw some light on the Sarah Schafer murder. Chief Russell left for home late this after noon, going by way of New Albany. He said the woman with whom he was in conference three hours had given him much information about Miss Schafer and her friends and acquaintances. He said the information was very valuable, but that he could not divulge it until he had liad further conference with the authori ties at Bedford. H< refused to give the woman's name. Heitger Was Shown to the Door. A dispatch from Elkhart, Ind., says: Mrs. Frank Gross of Chicago, a sister of Miss Schafer, who was murdered at ? Bedford. Is now in Elkhart to attend MIbs Scha fer's funeral. Mrs. Gross said a letter written by Miss Schafer complaining of annoyance by a man while calling on her gave the name of Heitger, saying that architect of the new Business High School. The style of architecture employed will be a type of the English renaissance. The building will acommodate about 800 pupils, and there will be room on the square for an enlargement of the structure so as to ac commodate 400 more students in case the additional building is needed. Some of the Accommodations. In addition tw a large number of class rooms the structure will contain a large gymnasium and assembly hall, special lab oratories. bath rooms, locker rooms, recep tion and office rooms and retiring rooms for the instructors. The building will be constructed of red hand-made brick, with trimmings in In diana limestone. It will be three stories high, with a basement. The structure will have a main frontage on Rhode Island ave nue of 17S feet, and smaller entrances on 8th and lKh streets, the former for the boys and the latter for the girls. Gray or pink granite will be used for the base course of the building, and the belt courses, columns' and other enrichments will be of limestone. The main en trance of the building shows a central por tico - effect, with a group of eight stone Ionic columns, carrying the entablature with the name of the 'building thereon, and with an elaborately ornamented cartouche above. Just over the main doorway will be ; an elaborate balcony, carried on heavy I brackets or corbels, ornamented with carv ing. The entrance and vestibule doors will be of quartered oak, with French plate glass windows. The entrances on 8th and 9th streets will be treated in much the same manner as the main entrance, excepting that'brick pilas ters with stone caps and bases will be used instead of stone columns. The flat roof of the building will be surrounded by a brick and stone parapet wall. In the basement will ibe installed the heat ing apparatus.! In tlUs part of the building also will be locate^ the janitor's living rooms, blcycH rooms, toilet and wash rooms, and tWft two bath rooms, each of which will be fitted up with five combina tion shower baths. s Vestibule and Stair Hall.

Neither the-:ietter written by Sarah nor >lrw. Gross-. re?ly;:(wli?eJ? wm signed Edna, dwelt on the incident. The Schafer fam ily says that it does not think Heltger had any connection with, the crime, and that his indiscretion Was simply the'boyij'h act of one who did*not realize Sarah's aver sion to unseemly conduct. ROCKEFELLER'S HEALTH RECIPE. Eat Cheese, Eat Slowly and Take Out door Exercise. From the New York American. Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, jr.. and little Miss Rockefeller are on their way to Flor ida in a private car. Young Mr. Rockefel ler and his wife and daughter will return in three weeks, but his father and mother will spend several more weeks in the south. John D. Rockefeller, sr.. was in a pleas ant frame of mind, before he started on Sat urday. Mr. Rockefeller was looking well. Although the management of his great en terprises compel him to be one of the hard est workers in the world, he showed no in dication of the fatigue incident to his labors. "My health! Thank you. I was never bet ter in my life," he said. "I have discover ed the best prescription for good health is outdoor exercise and eating slowly. Be regular in everything, but above all things, eat slowly. "If I have only fifteen minutes to eat a luncheon I will eat four or Ave motitlifuls In that time and carry away a mouthful with me. Four tnouthfuls slowly eaten is far better than a hearty meal consumed in haste. It takes a person a long time to ap preciate this fully, but the sooner they do It the better it will be for their health. 1 find that when I play golf a lot and keep out of doors I both eat and sleep better. "Do you know that I recently read an article by a well-known scientific man to the effect that cheese is an excellent article of diet? I wish that I had read that article a long time ago. I had been afraid that cheese had a tendency to produce indiges tion. and for that reason never touched it. Now, I find that Its effects are directly con trary. and I eat a great deal of it and find it agrees with me. "Take my advice, eat cheese, eat slowly ? and have outdoor exercise and you will en I joy good health." SENATOR HANNA ON POKER. Future Possibilities in Keynotes. From the Chicago Record-Herald.

Songs, Poems and Stories?The Addresses a Feature. Hoot mon! Yesterday was the 143th anniversary of Robert Burns' birthday and right royally did the Caledonian clansmen of the District observe the occasion. "Wl' merry sangs and friendly cracks," they gathered around the banauet board at Hotel Reuter last evening and, according to custom, paid loving trib ute to their country's poet. It was the annual reunion and banquet of the Caledonian Club, whose feasts of reason and flow of soul have Ions since been recog nized as conspicuous events in the District. An oil painting of Burns draped with flags I hung prominently on the wall and the fes tive board and cheery air right well sug gested "Sit round the table weel content, an' stir about .the toddy." Dr. Thomas Miller, chief of the club, pre sided as toast master, in which duty he cleverly wove wit and humor when he call ed for songs and speeches. The banquet was shorn of customary for malities, the program of addresses and music being given as the courses were serv ed. A carnation lay at each guest's plate and about fifty guests were seated. Mr. William Jardine reverently invoked the divine blessing, with a bit of Scotch verse. Mr. John Russell followed with the song. "Bonnie Scotch Thistle." which was sung without accompaniment and with the real Scotch flavor. Music was the feature of the evening and upon the presentation of each speaker he was greeted with the song by the company "He's a jolly good fellow." Solos were ren dered by Mr. Harry L. Shackelford of Burnt Cork Club fame: Mr. James Painter and Mr. William Gardiner. The songs were inspir ing and provoked hearty applause. But it was when the notes of the piper fell upon waiting ears that the enthusiasm of the company reached its climax. Pipe Major David Brunton entered the hall play ing "The Campbells Are Coming." and he was cheered to the echo. Mr. Jardine play ed very sweetly a number of favorite Scotch airs on a clarionet. Prof. Saltsman render ed several piona solos, and Noah Zeller added variety to the program by a song In German, which caught the humor of the company. Besponses to Toasts. The toasts were well selected, instructive and interesting. The responses were heart ily applauded, and a decided relish was added by the clever Interpolation of an original poem. "Scotland and Burns." by Mr. J. H. Stevenson. It was a beautiful bit of verse, whose theme was discussed with a charm and expression peculiar to a Scotch poet. Mr. Stevenson reads an origi nal poem at each annual reunion, and this year's contribution added much to that genius and oratory for which he Is already known. The following is the program of toasts and their responses: "The day we celebrate, to the immortal memory of Burns." Clansman "Scottie" Smyth: "The Caledonian Club." by Robert L. Cameron, the oldetrt member of the club, who was suffering with such a cold that he could respond with but a few word*; "The land o'cakes, may her future be as glrv rious as her past." Clansman W. C. Burr; "Our adopted country, the home of thou sands of good Scotsmen and better Ameri can citizens Clansman Robert Armour, a veteran of the civil war, who served in the 70th New Y-irk Volunteers; "The President, the executive, not the ruler, or a free peo ple," Clansman A. E. L. Leckie, and "The Lassies: She electa without voting and gov erns without law," was responded to very neatly toy a song. "Green Grows the Rashes," by Clansman James Cutworth. The Addresses. An address was made by Mr. James Dun can of the American Federation of Labor which was inspiring to every Scotsman present. Mr. Duncan said he represented over two m llion American citizens, of whom a liberal percentage were Scotch or of Scottish descent. He had traveled to many Catarrh Cured By Herbs AND NOT BY COCAINE. It is known among doctors, as well as their patients, that the chief ingredient of most so-called catarrh and asthma cures is cocaine which relieves the patient by deadening the pain, but which does not cure. In stead, it is injurious. Thousands upon thousands of people who are addicted to the cocaine habit acquired it bv using some so-called asth ma or catarrh curc which contained cocaine. TO-NI-TA Dr. Loremtz's Mucous Membrane Bitters, discovered by Dr. Lorentz, the well-known specialist, is composed of pure medicinal herbs only, and is guaranteed to be absolutely free from cocaine and dangerous drugs of any description. TO-NI-TA will cure any case of catarrh of the. head, throat, lungs, stomach, kidneys, bladder and female organs. Thousands of doctors who have had the prescription brought to their attention, say it is a Godsend to suffering humanity and the only cure for catarrh that they have found safe to prescribe. A trial bottle will convince anyone that TO-NI-TA will absolutely cure catarrh of any description. It acts directly on the mucous mem brane, driving the poisons out of the system, as it is a mild laxative. It stimulates and purifies the blood, tones up the heart action, invigorates the brain, and makes blood, muscle and nerve. DOCTORS PRESCRIBE TO-NI-TA. "TO-NI-TA is the most perfect tonic and stimulant that has ever come to my notice. I became familiar with the prescription from which TO-NI-TA is compounded, a number of years ago. through mv pro fessional association with Dr. Lorentz. Relying upon his advice I be gan using TO-NI-TA in my own practice, and with the most signal success. "I have treated every variety of disease in both men and women which attacks the nmcous membrane, and I believe there is not a case so severe, no matter of how long standing, that TO-NI-TA will not re lieve and cure. "In lung troubles, in nervous disorders, and wherever a condition approaching general breakdown is indicated, TO-NI-TA is uniformly effective. I always prescribe it. "I will avail myself of any opportunitv to answer correspondence relative to this medicine." HARRY M. SCHALL, M. D. Rochester, N. Y., September r, I9?3 Beware of Substitutes and firm stations.

It parts of the world, and wherever he had visited he found the spirit of Burns and his 6ongs. One could never get away fiom "Auld Lang Syne." He regarded Burns "A man's a man for a' that" as a living principle that marked the Scotchman in whatever portion of the globe you find him. It was a truism that had been translated into many of the world s languages Mr. Duncan's remarks elicited prolonged ana hearty applause. ? . .. Clansman Smyth's remarks were replete with wholesome truths of Burns Kreat heart and love of nature. His tribute showed careful preparation, and was a lov ing testimonial to the noble bard. Prof. Leckie's tribute referred to the two great characteristics of Scottish life?love of country and love of God. His remarks were made more forceful by a most pleas ing delivery and impressive mien. He gave illustrations indicating the beauties and he roic grandeur of these traits of Scottish life, and said that Burns and his cjans lived and practiced life near to nature a own heart. Dr. Bennett enlivened the company with some good Scotch stories, and he gave them with a zest and typical portraiture that evoked the greatest enthusiasm.

Enthusiastic Beport on Their Conduct Made by Win. A. Sutherland, the Agent in Charge. The bureau of insular affairs, War De partment. is in receipt of the first report of William Alex Sutherland, the agent In charge of Filipino students in the United States. In August of last year the Philippine com mission passed an act providing for the education of a number of Filipinos In the United States at the expense of the in sular government. The boys were care fully selected by examination, both mental and physical, from thirty-three provinces, and English was one of the studies in which they were obliged to have good grade*. Great enthusiasm throughout the Phil ippines was aroused by the sending of these students to America, and many pleasing attentions were shown them both at their home towns and In Manila before embark ing. A special operatic performance was given in their* honor, and on the morning of their departure a meeting was held at which addresses were made by Gov. Taft. Commissioners Smith and Tavera and prominent Filipinos, after which they marched to the wharf in a body to the music of half a dozen brass bands and ac companied by civic organisations and thous ands of citizens. Ninety-six students embarked October 10. Both the passengers and ship's officers spoke in praise of the conduct of the stu dents. The party reached San Francisco November !>. and on the 11th left for south ern California, where they are *o remain for the winter, distributed among the public schools of the southern counties. It was thought best not to subject them to the rigors of a northern winter at once, but next summer they will be brought to the middle states. The report concludes with the following language: "No other class of Filipinos whom I have known have in any degree compared with the Filipino students sent to America ut their appreciation and gratitude for the benefits conferrtd upon th^rn. for the for bearance and patience shown them and tne opportunities offered them for progress by the government. I have reports front tlieir teachers and housekeepers at every place that the danger is not that they will study too little, but tl>at they will study too much. They were uniformly successful in the ex aminations held by their schools, just prior to the holidays, desrite their late entrance to the schools and the short time that they have been studying their texts in English. They are all working with splendid serious ness for the accomplishment of the lofty purposes for which they are in this country, and I only ask that as good materia! be furnished in the future; that not one young man or young woman In whom the fullest confidence may not be placed and whose fitness, mental and physical is not of the very highest order be sent by the govern-' ment for education in the United States. There is no scarcity of such material, and if it be sent I feel that there can be no question as to the final result.7 Beported Arrangement Repudiated. The Department of State has received from Consul Mayer, Uuenos Ayres, Argen tine Republic, a report, dated Deceinl?er 13. regarding a Minneapolis company named the South American Colon'sts. which >? selling shares of fj *> each, each shareliolder being entitled to certain lands and privi leges in the Argentine Republic, it In claimed that the colonis s will be exempt from taxation for ten years, and will b? allowed to carry all their household goods, farm machinery, etc.. into the coutitiy frcw of duty.
