E, INVITATION. Machinists Want Wages at Navy Yard Increased-President Gompers on the Chicago Strike. "Corporal" Tanner, register of wills, made a call on the President this morning and talked with him about politics and some local affairs connected with his office. Mr. Tanner is having something of a con test with the auditor of the State and other departments about the turning over to the government of any surplus money that may accumulate in his office, and about some that is alleged to have accumulated there toward the close of the last fiscal year. The law provides that the office of the reg ister of wills of the District shall be a eclf maintaining institution and the register must see that it is managed in this way that is, that the receipts of the office must pay all expenses. The law Is silent as to any surplus that might exist at any time, but during the administration of President Harrison he issued an executive order that there should be a settlement at the end of every three months and that any surplus should be turned into the treasury of the United States. The deputy auditor for the State and other departments is of the opin ion. it is stated, that this order is still in effect, but "Corporal" Tanner has made an investigation and finds that the order was amended, making a settlement and a turn ing over of funds every six months, the Sist of December and the 30th of June. Registers in the past are said to have con strued the order about as they saw fit, and Register Dent is said to have made a set tlement but once a year-at the close of each fiscal year. At the end of the fiscal year just closed Register Tanner did not turn in anything to the treasury, simply present ng a state ment that the account between his office and the treasury was even, and that he would begin the new fiscal year without a dollar. That he might be able to turn in a clear sheet to the treasury, however.- Mr. Tanner is charged with having distributed something like $000 among his clerks and shown himself pretty liberal as an official of the District. When the charge was called to the attention of Mr. Tanner tody he smiled and said he would not have the least objection to the auditor looking into Jhis expenditures as freely and fully as he desired, as he had confined himself within the law. Mr. Tanner's Explanation. Mr. Tanner went on to explain that owing to the comparatively meager receipts of the register's office and the heavy work to be done the clerks are all underpaid. The ma jority of them, he said, draw $50 and $60 a month, there being as many clerks at $50 as at $. About four persons received $75 per month, and one man gets $1.200. "I found it necessary last June to reduce the force so as to cut down expenses," said Mr. Tanner, "and I had to dismiss five persons. As these clerks could not be given a leave of absence of thirty days I directed my disbursing officer to raise their salaries for the month of -June if the receipts of the of fice permitted it to be done. We fortunate ly received a good many fees about this time, and found that we had about $000 on hand that we might not have immediate use for. The five clerks were paid salaries for June that were commensurate with their services and which we could not pay all the time. When we went to count up we found that we ought to do something for the poorly paid clerks, and I gave orders that clerks receiving less than $000 per year should have their salaries raised fcr the month of June, but that beginning with the new fiscal year the salaries would return to the old figures because of the receipts. When we had made up our pay rolls we found that there was a surplus of $5.86 on hand. I instructed the cashier to buy stamps with that amount and turn in a clean sheet, as the turning over of that sum would cause much auditing and waste of government time. That's the whole story. The law clearly gives me the right to regulate th' salaries of the office, and I am sorry that the receipts will not permit me to pay bet ter salaries all the time." It is stated that it has been a practice o' registers of wills to turn in comparative ly little to the treasury each year. It is said that in the last four years of his ad ministration Mr. Dent's surplus turned into the United States treasury amounted to less than $75 each year. running below $50 f9r several years. To prevent an accumulation of cash in the office toward the close of the fiscal year it is said that it has long been a custom of the office to ask lawyers and others to ab stain from payments of large bills until the beginning of a new fiscal year, thereby starting the office off with a goodly amount of cash. Mr. Tanner did not discuss the details of his fiscal-year settlement with the treasury, but informed the President that at some future time he desired to take up with him the question of Issuing an order which would allow a settlement to be made at the end of each fiscal year and not twice or oftener a year, at the same time making clear the difference of opinion that now exists as to the settlement. Probably Not Going to Boston. "Corporal' Tanner urged the President to accept the invitation to visit the national encampment of the G. A. R. at Bosten this month and review the great parade. The President feels that he would like to do so, but he has refused so many invitations on the ground that he does not think it wise to travel around much this year that he believes it would be entirely unfair to others to accept this invitation, no matter how much he might regard it as having especial reasons appealing in its behalf. Mr. Tanner told the President that he would be elected by a large majority. and that New York would cast her electoral vote for him.~. Wage Increse for Xachinl.ts. The President was called upon this morn ing by James O'Connell, president of the International Association of Americar Machinists, and Samuel Gompers, presiden1 of the American Federation of Labor. Witi them were Emmett L. Adams. David 1 Thomas, Thomas L. Dornin and Bernarc G. Ladd, a local committee of Columbia Lodge of Machinists. The object of the cal was to again lay before the President the question of the wages of the machinists em. p loyed in the Washington navy yard Psident O'Connell and his organisatior have been making efforts for some time te secure a bettor rate of wages in the yards asserting that the machinists there are no paid the same rate as machinists employe< in various occupations throughout this ter ritory. The President took the matter ut once before and asked the Secretary of th< Navy to take action. The Secretary refr red the question to the wages board of th navy yard. which some time ago gave careful consideration and failed to make recommendation for an increase in thi START STRONO Food that Nourishes all day2 Grape-Nuts and Cream. wages. President O'Connell again took the matti up with the Presidett, who has as sured the delegation that he means to give further consideration to the question. That he may do so he will direct Secretary Mor ton to again refer the question to the wages board for a report, the machinists at the same time to submit a written statement of their position and views. When this board has acted, Secretary Morton will make a report, and if the wages board again fails to recommend an increase, the machinists have beerr assured that they can take the question up personally with Secretary Morton. Gompers. on Chicago Strike. Speaking about the beef strike in Chi cago, Samuel Gompers said: "It seems to me that the course pur sued by the packers in the strike is most, arbitrary and most unwise. Their re fusal to confer witht representatives or committees of the unions serves only to exasperate the men and to render less likely an amicable adjustment of the dif ficulties. I have no new information from Chicago concerning the strike sit uation; all I know, in fact, you probably know from the morning papers; but I have no doubt that the situation has been rendered the more acute by the arbitrary attitude assumed by the packers. Inev itably their refusal to confer with the men, except as Individuals, will tend not only to make the men more insistent in their desires, but, what. is more to the point, will enlist the active sympthy of all unions and union men throughout the country. If the position of the packers is to be maintained successfully, employ ers in other industries will take the same position with respect to their union em ployes. That might result in trouble all along the line. Of- course, the men will insist upon conferences with their em ployers. That is only natural and fair. If, In the present circumstances, when the butchers and allied crafts have the strike well in hand, they yield to the con tention of the packers that the men must return to their employment as individ uals, without reference to their member ship in unions or to their former em ployment, they will yield everything. The chances, I think, are that they will accede to that demand of the packers only at the expense of the breaking up of their union organization. They will make no such concession as that to the pack ers." Delaware Not Democratic. Senator Allee, the leading representative in Delaware of J. E. Addicks, the republi can machine man of that state, called on the President to introduce some friends. "We will carry Delaware with ease," said Senator Allee. "What makes you think so." "Because the republicans have 5,000 more votes than the democrats, and that is a large enough majority to carry the elec tion," went on Senator Allee. "There will be only one electoral ticket in the field. The 'regular' republicans, as they are called. will meet in state convention next Tuesday to nominate a state ticket and presidential electors. We will accept the ticket of electors they put in the field, and that will eliminate all question of democratic suc cess. As to the state ticket, I am sure both factions will get together. The national convention has recognized the regularity of our side and that has a good effect throughout the state. No. I cannot say anything about how we will get together, as that might break into some of our plans, but we propose to arrange things so that the democrats will stand no chance of suc ceeding." Senator Allee appeared to be quite hope ful that the republican factions will be able to get together. They have bitterly fought each other so long that both sides have been deprived of many good offices by the democrats profiting by the division. The two factions have for eight years polled more votes when combined than the demo crats, but they recognize that if they are ever to get- -together the time has come, owing to democratic harmony and the re turn of gold democrats to the ranks of their party. At the same time there lingers much of the old bitter.1css, and the anti-Addicks people declare that no compromise can be made that will cause them to give their support to any arrangement that will send him to the United States Senate. Maryland and Wisconsin. Robert Garrett, the young Baltimore re publican who has just been nominated for Congress by the republicans of one of the Maryland districts, called on the President and talked with him fifteen minutes as to political affairs in Maryland. The Presi dent was pleased to receive the young Maryland leader and they discussed a num ber of important political matters. Ernest G. Timme, auditor for the State and other departments, has just returned from six weeks spent in his home State of Wisconsin. He was for many years a State officer of Wisconsin and knows the state like a book. "Wisconsin is as surely republican as Pennsylvania," said Mr. Timme, "and that is an absolute fact. The courts of Wiscon sin will soon pass upon the question of the legality of the two State tickets that are in the field and I think that when this is done the republicans will get together. The electoral ticket will be carried by the re publicans without trouble." President Roosevelt played tennis for two hours late yesterday afternoon on the new courts constructed . on the beautiful lawn just south of the White House. Commis sioner Cooley of the civil service commis sion was his competitor for a portion of the time. Secretary Metcalf of the Depart ment of Commerce and Labor also played with the President. Secretary Morton came over to the White House after the close of his work at the Navy Department and wit nessed the game. Land Office Appointment. President Roosevelt has made appoint ments in local land offices as follows: Sid ney R. DeLong, receiver of public moneys at Tucson, Ariz.; Egebert S. Oakley, to be register of the land office at Cass Lake, Mlnn.; Mathias N. Koll, to be receiver of public moneys at Cass Lake, vice Oakley transferred. Charges Against Produce Dealers. Separate charges of violating the police regulations by occupying space on B street at the Center market without a permit were filed in the District branch of the Police Court today against Joseph Bettoni, James Taylor and Morris Pumphrey, by Assistant Corporation Counsel A. Leftwich Sinclair, because of a complaint made by Detective Watson. At the request of Attorney Foun tamn Peyton, hearing of the cases was post poned until the 15th instant, because of the absence from the city of Attorney H. E. Davis, of counsel for the defendants. The si.ace occupied by the defendants at the market is for the use of produce dealers who sell stock of their own raising, and not for those who buy their stock, which it is claimed by the prosecuting attorney is done by the defendants. The claim made by the defense is that the space occupied by them is in front 'of a government reser vation and is not under the control of the Commissioners of the District. Alleges Assault. IDempsey Simms, colored- twenty-six years old, living at 934 Grant avenue northwest. was treated at Freedmen's Hospital yester day afternoon about 5:30 o'clock for an in jury to his head. His story was that he was assaulted while in a pool room near 7th and R streets, kept by Silas Johnson. Three men, he stated, participated in the assault and he gave the police the name of cne of them. Severely Hurt. Abraham Wilkerson, colored, seven years old, fell on Howard avenue, Hillsdale, last night and was severely injured. He was taken to the Washington Asylum Hospital for treatment. Injured by a Fall. George H. Adams. thirty-seven years old, a resident of Philadelphia, fell from a street car at New York avenue and 13th street last night and was badly Injured.

Va, August 4. Both rivers are clear here.today; JEALOUS WOMAN'S B"ANGI . Stabs Her Rival With Table Fork Fine Was $200. While in a fit of jealous rage because she thought her lover had discarded her for another woman. Mamie Wheeler, a young colored woman, visited the home of Della Craghead, colored, the object of her wrath, in an alley near the corner of 2d and L streets northwest, shortly after 12 o'clock last night. If it had not been for the tune. ly arrival of Policeman Coombs Della would have perhaps been murdered or seriously wounded as a result of the visit made by Mamie. Fortunately, however, she was only slightly hurt and was able to appear aF a witness against Mamie In the United States branch of the Police Court this morning. -Policeman Coombs was standing near the entrance to the alley when he heard .calls for assistance coming from the interior. Hurrying in the direction of the calls, he found that they came from the second floor of a house occupied by Della Craghead. Hie war unable to gain admittance through the front door and went around to the back door, which he found standing open. In the meantime the cries for assistance con - tinued. and the officer was not long in reaching the upper part of the house, whera~ he found Della lying on the floor with blood streaming from her head and arms. As he neared the top of the stairway a colored woman a:ttempted to push her way by him, but he forced her back into the room while he learned the cause of the trouble. He was not long in ascertaining, Della telling him at once that Mamie had attacked hier with a -table fork, stabbing her in several places on the head and in the arms. The patrol wagon from the second pre cinct police station was summoned and the injured woman was conveyed to the Homeo' pathic Hospital. where she was given sur g Ical atterrtion. Mamie was placed under ar rest and sent to the station house. This morning Della was able to appear in the United States branch of the Police Court when Mamie was arraigned before Judge Kimball on a charge of assault and battery. "What was the trouble between you and Mamie?" Judge Kimball asked bella, notic ing that her head was Wrapped in a band age. "'She came to my house last night after I had gone to bed and banged on the door, and when I poked my bead out the window to see who it was she called to me to come down, but I told her no, and then she fired a brick up at me." "Is that how your 'head got hurt?"~ his honor wanted to know. "No, sir; she broke the back'door down, and then went into my kitchen and threw all the dishes upstairs at me.* - "Did any of them hit ybu?" she was "Not a one, because I hid:in -tie corner; but after she threw everytdibg Iat me she could Aind she came up afthc nte herself, and jumped on me with a foiik,fdticking it in my head and arms.' *4 - "Do you know what made'her deme after you?' Judge Kimball inquiesef Dela. "Only that she thinks that Itm going with her fellow; but I don't>want him any how." no* i "What made you attack D.uW the way you did?" Judge Kimball asls Mamie. "I didn't have no trouble tet her,' and didn't touch her, but was sMemdng out In the alley when I got arrested,' :Mamie de clared. "re yo ,sure?" the court h4,er. "I don't think you are tetting it right,' Judge Kimball told her, "atE you can pay a fine of 1200 or spend e vnmthe and twenty-nine days in jail to t over." UmBPires of Xaneu,rs. Colonel E. L.

Carothers of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company urging him to push forward more tapidly the work on the H street subway in connection with the new union terminal project. The letter sent to Mr. Carothers was prepared by Capt. Jay J. Morrow, assistant to the Engi neer Commilssioner, who has immediate charge of the District's part of the terminal work. The communication, among other things, sets forth that the work of excavating on the H street subway has not progressed as rapidly as the District offBcials had been led to believe it would: that the condition of the street is not desirable, and that it is desired to have the work on the puiltll space performed as soon as possible in order- not to inconvenience the citizens any more than Is actually necessary. --The rail road engineers are asked to hurry up the work. Ar"my Idaves of Absmene Second Lieut. Thomas E. Cathiro, 13th Cavalry, has been granted three montha' extension of leave on account of disability. Cadet Carl C. Oakes, fourth class, Unted States Military Academy, has been granted leave until August 28 next.
