Ethel Grant's early Impression of city life
was nit such as to make her think her
future prospects are bright. She came from

the habit of blowing out the blazing oil

lid the same thing when she wanted to
larken her room in the city last night. She
was at per place of employment, 1908 Q
street, and the escaping gas came nea
causing her to die. She was in a critical
condition this morning when found in her
room, and was removed to the Emergency
Hospital in the ambulance. It was all the
loctors could do to save her life. She was
unconscious and had probably been in that
condition several hours. After she had
been at the hospital a short time she show
>d signs of improving and the doctors think
she will recover.

Church Directed to Have Improvements
Made in Thirty Days.
Eugene Russell of 1807 8th street north
west; John Wallace, 836 Farragut street;
George Hood, 2130 8th street northwest;
Douglass Howard, 3411 Sheridan avenue,
and Thomas Jones, 630 Summer street
northwest, were in Police Court before
Judge Kimball this morning on a charge
of failure to connect premises of which they
have charge with the public sewer. -It de
veloped that the dwellings were the prop
erty of the Zion Methodist Church of Sher
idan street northwest, and the trustees of
the church were held responsible for the
failure to make the connection noted.
The pastor of the church appeared be
fore the judge to explain the circumstances
of their failure. He sctated that the con
gregation is poor and that many of its
members are now out of work. It is hard
for the church, he said, to raise money to
do this work. He explained that the mem
bers are considering the building of a
chapel in the place of these houses. The
pastor asked for ninety days in which to
complete the work. The court allowed thirty
days for the work, the tenants to be notified
to get out in that time in case of failure
to have sewer connections made. The con
ditions, however, must be remedied or the
houses cannot be used as habitations. The
bond o fthe trustees and pastor of the
church was taken to insure a remedy of
the fault.

Trouble Over a Woman.
John Saunders, colored, whQse home is
at 101 18th street northwest, is under treat
ment at the Casualty Hospital for knife
wounds of the leg and chest. It is alleged
that John Johnson, also colored, inflicted
the wounds. There was a row at the home
of Saunders yesterday afternoon, in which
Johnson and female members of Saunders'
family are alleged to have participated.
"Don't slap my daughter," Saunders is
alleged to have told Johnson. "Slap me
and we men know how to settle trouble
without having it with women."
Then the trouble between the men started
and Saunders received the wounds. The
quantity of blood lost by the victim caused
the belief that he was dying, and the po
lice were summoned. The wounded man
was hurried to the Casualty Hospital,
where Dr. Lloyd dressed the wounds. Saun
ders was weak from loss of blood, but his
condition improved, and he is out of dan

Formation of Society of Civil Engineers
to Be Considered Later.
The local members of the American So
ciety of Civil Engineers failed to reach an
agreement as to the organization of a local
association at a meeting held last night,
and the committee in charge of the prepa
ration of the by-laws was continued and
directed to report at a meeting to be held
next fall. In the meantime three members
of the committee were instructed to attend
the annual meeting "of the society, to be
held in Cleveland shortly, when efforts wilj
be made to bring about an amicable agree
ment between the national association and
the promoters of the local organization.
The failure to agree, it was explained.
does not mean that the members of the pro
posed organization are at odds as to its
formation. Quite the contrary sentiment
prevails. They are all anxious to have the
association formed, but there was a differ
ence of opinion as to the adoption of a cer
tair; clause in the by-laws, which permits
the admission to membership of any per
son a resident within fifty miles of Wash
ington who is actively engaged or profes
sionally interested in civil engineering. This
particular clause was rejected by the board
of directors of the national organization
when the plan for the local association was
submitted to them, the board deciding that
if any persons other than members of the
American society should be admitted as
members, the organization could not be
affiliated with the national body.
This was the question that came up for
consideration last night, and it was thor
oughly discussed. The sentiment displayed
at the meeting was friendly to the Ameri
can society, although some of the members
believed that an independent organization
could be effected here. By independent is
meant that an organization of Washington
engineers solely could be formed. Member
ship and affiliation with such an aspocia
tion would not in any degree affect the
membership of local engineers in the Ameri
can society.
As a result of the sentiment shown no
vote was taken on the by-laws, the action
in continuing the committee being substi
tuted. A vote was taken, however, on the
proposition to q.rganize ag association of
engineers, consisting of the four principal
branches of the profession, and the result
was a tie-li votes for and 11 votes against.
Gen. Alexander MacKenzie chief of en
gineers of the army, who presided at the
meeting, withheld his vote, and the matter
was allowed to stand in abeyance on the
report of the committee to be made next
There was a small attendance at the
meeting, and after the business had been
disposed of a buffet lunch was served.

Former Msmber of 11th Infantry
Rold a Meeting.
A meeting of former members of the 11th
Indiana Volunteer Infantry, which the late
Gen, Low Wallace commanded during the
early part of the civil war, and which was
with him at the time he was prevented from
getting onto the firing line at the battle of
Shiloh, was held at the residence of Capt.
J. P. Megrew, superintendent of the Ca;;tol
police force, and was called for the pur
pose of taking action to refute the inter
view of David Smith, former sheriff of Tip
pecanoe county, Ind., recently published in
a Lafayette, Ind.. newspaper.
Smith is alleged to have stated that he
was a dispatch bearer during the battle of
Shiloh, and that he was sent by Gen. Grant
with a verbal message to Gen. Wallace,
ordering the latter to hasten to join Sher
t man; that Wallace, Instead of going di
rectly over a good corduroy road only six
miles long, which would have brought his
division in junction with Sherman. marced
his men forty-two miles hefore effecting the
union of the armies, thus making a great
blunder and sacrificing thousands of lives.
Those present last night were Capt. Me
grew, who commanded a company in the
11th Indiana Regiment; Maj. George Butler
of the Capitol police force, who also com
manded a company in the regiment; George
Simmons. chief of the stationery division
of the Treasury Department, who was a
lieutenant in Maj. Butler's company, and
- Thbmas Pursell of the government printing
office, who was a lieutenant in another com
pany of the regiment. After discusing the
situation at length these four men, all of
whom were friends of .the late Gen. Wal
lace, decided on a statement, part of which
"Mr. Smith's attack, boming after Gen.
Wallace's death, is cowardly, base and in
famous, and we condemn it In unqualified
terms. Strong men always make enemies.
and it Is believed that Smith is put forward
and used as a tool by the enemies of Gen.
Wallace. He may have occupied the im
t portant position during the battle which he
vlaims, but there is good reason for doubt
ing it. Is It likely that a boy of eighteen
years, absolutely without experience under
fire, would have been selected for the very
important duty of dispatch bearer upon
such a trying and critical occasion? Many
of Smith's statements are absolutely with
out foundation In fact. For instance, his
corduroy road Is a pure myth. Every one
knows that the Union army at Shiloh was
surprised, and that there was no time to
construct such a road.
"The whole troulile at Shiloh grew out of
a misunderstanding between the principal
officers concerned, and Gen. Grant before
his death not only exonerated Gen. Wallace,
but earnestly indorsed and commended his
whole military career."
