It* TRIAL OF LEAVELL. Virginia Attorney Wants Him Trans ferred to Fairfax County. C*. V Ford, commonwealth attorney for Fairfax county, Yu., has requested Assist ant District Attorn?y Ralph Oiyen to out line the legal steps that must be taken to procure the release of Joseph iieavell. col iited from the District Jail, for a trial for n.urder In Virginia. After the written re ?juest was made yester<lay Mr Given stated that he would consult with District Attor ney Baker as to the advisability of recom mending the pardon of I.eavell at the proper time and would advise the common wealth attorney as soon as possible. Mr. Ford stated that Virginia was holding In Jail important government witnesses who might be discharged by the order of the court should the trial for murder be de layed until 1-ea.vell shall finish his year's sentence, and that if the witnesses were dismissed they might not be available when the time for the trial came. He further stated that the requisition papers would be furnished promptly as soon as he learned th? legal steps that must be taken. Assistant District Attorney Given tnkes the view that the indictment ngalnst l,<-av ell should he brought by the grand jury, and that when the time shall come for the trial for murder the pardon should then be ?ranted. AN ALLEGED BIG DEAL SALE OF ANALOSTAN ISLAND CONTEMPLATED. Party of Prospectors Inspects the Property?Rumors of Railway Combinations. It l.? stated that negotiations are about to be concluded for the purchase of Analos tan island, which consists of about seventy five acres of land, situated east of the Aqueduct bridge and between Little river and the Georgetown channel of the Poto mac. It is said that the price asked is in the neighborhood of 1100,000. A party of six gentlemen of prominence paid a visit to the island last Monday in a rowlmat which they hired at Georgetown. They spent considerable time In looking; over the ground and figuring. In an off-hand way. the expense of cleaning off the wild growth of trees and underbrush, together with the cost, roughly estimated. Incident to t he erection of a sea wall, the distance of the river frontage, on the channel side, ilu dredging of channel approaches, etc. Tt is understood that these gentlemen represented outside interests, and it is defi nitely known that a prominent real estate firm, which transacts considerable business of (his character, was represented in the party. Some of those in the party are also said to be identified with the Great Kails and Old Dominion Railroad Company. It is further intimated that the same party has secured certain options on property In Virginia in the vicinity of the government's reservation in Rosslyn and are looking up ccrtain real estate interests along the Georgetown water front. Throughout the time consumed In looking over the island the members of the party Indulged in conversation of a speculative and prospective character, which started another rumor to the effect that the Great I-all.i and Old Dominion Railway Company wlli soon pass into the control of a big syn dicate. Should It develop that the island is pur chased by th? interests represented by pros pectors and investigators it will appear rea sonable and plausible to believe tiiat changes which arc believed to be scheduled to take p.ace in the railroad management will ter minate in the \\ abash Railroad Company acquiring all that portion of the Great Kails line situate on the Virginia side of the Po tomac, In which event not many miles of extension will lie required to form a con necting link to Winchester, where, it is said, the latest accomplishment of progress to the Atlantic of this transcontinental railway Is in evidence. Capital Traction Plans. It is also regarded as a plausible proposi tion, in consideration of recent develop ments. that the Capital Traction Company will acquire the remainder of the road, ex tending from the government reservation, at the Virginia end of the Aqueduct bridge, to a point at .'Kith and >1 streets, within a dis tance of thirty feet from the tracks of the Capital Traction line. It Is regarde ! by ji close observer of events as probable that the latter company has conditionally acquired that portion of the road already, and within the short space of two or three days the work of connecting this portion to their city line might become an accomplished fact. As that much of the road is already equipped with the under ground system and is of the same gauge as the Capital Traction iine, there would be no <lt lay necessary further than the day or two required to make tlie connections in the operation of cars over this prospective ex tenrion to Rosslyn. It is believed that a deal with the Wabash company is "hanging fire." and when the transaction is Anally closed theCapitalTrae tion Corapanj and the Great Kalis and Old Dominion Company will settie their bargain. In the m.-antime. it is understood, the agents of the Wabash are prospecting in the vicinity of Rosslyn for suitable property for the de;>ot and freight yards, and the visit of the party to Analostan Island and their prospective utterances and actions at the time is accepted by many as confirma tory of the theory that this property, which j offers many natural advantages, has been considered for freight yards. This will bring the Wabash to tidewater, which it has been striving some time to reach, and the seven ty-five acres, with a mile of water front al most adjacent to the channel of the Po tomac. would enable the company to unload its cargoes of West Virginia coal upon barges and other water craft and thus gratify the desire of Senator Elkins and others interested in the coal fields of West Virginia. Option on Property Alleged. It is further understood that an option has been secured upon a large piece of property near the Virginia end of the Aqueduct bridge which may be desired as a site for a depot. There has been so much discussion about the future of the Great Kails and Old Do minion, so piany exchanges of views and so many predictions as to what Is going to take place within the near future that it h is be come a topic of daily conversation with everybody in the locality, as well as a mat ter of much speculation and prediction. The consensus of opinion, though, is what is herein referred to. It would consume, it is believed, the better part of three years, at least, to reallze_the plans should they he determined upon, pro viding this is the preliminary, and that the project is to be pushed with all haste. These rumors are all justified by the un- ! settled condition of affairs regarding the fu ture of the Great Kalis and Gld Dominion, tie manifest desire of George Gould to land the Wabash at Washington, the anxiety of some of the stockholders in the former road to get West Virginia coal to tidewater to better advantage, the extra heavy construc tion of the sui erstructure of the road and certain developments in connection with af fairs apparently relating to all three com panies. Installation of Officers. Officers were installed for the ensuing term of 1000 Sunday, January 14. lilOi, by Washington Dodge, Xo. 7, Theatrical Me chanical Association, at its hall. 4."i0 9th street northwest.

A DIFFERENCE IN LUNGS In the Edinburgh University three human lungs He side by side. One is of an Eskimo and is snow white. In life this would be ruddy with rich blood. Another is that of a coal miner and is black. The other is of a town dweller and is a dirty slate gray, as are the lungs of most city residents. That's why consumption thrives in cities. One reason why Scott's Emulsion docs so much to keep down consumption is be cause it helps to keep the lungs clean and supplies them with rich, red blood. * It makes the lungs germ-resisting. If the body is run down and health is at a low ebb Scott's Emulsion will build it up quickly and permanently. 8C >TT ? BOWXK, ?**> Petri Street, X*w York THOMAS B. BRYAN DEAD SERVED AS DISTRICT COMMIS SIONER UNDER HAYES. Was Vice President of Chicago World's Fair and Father of United States Minister to Portugal.

Meeting Held Last Night?Addresses Made by Number of Temper ance Advocates. With the view of promoting better citi zenship and restoring to family and friends those victims of intemperance who have become human derelicts on the sea of life, the Fraternal Jonadabs inaugurated their campaign for the winter of ltK)0 last night by holding an open meeting at their hall, 910 Pennsylvania avenue northwest. The meeting, which was largely attended, was under the auspices of Washington Council, No. 1. Although this organization lias been but nine months in existence, its members claim that during its brief period in the work of spreading the teachings of Jona dabism it has accomplished a great deal of good. This, they add. was attested by the large number of its own members and of their friends who were at last night's gathering. The meeting was called to order by Worthy Chief J. Feelon I-e Barnes, who. in a few remarks, made known the objects, aims and purposes of this character of meetings. "It is," said he. "because we wish the public to know just how we stand on this great problem of temperance reform, and my associates in the fraternal order pro pose on the last Thursday of each month during the vear to open our council room to the public so that those who may elect may be with us in our efforts to reclaim the poor victims of the unfortunate appetite of strong drink." The worthy chiof then turned the gavel over to Mr. William A. lllckey, who occu pied the chair during the "good of the or der" exercises. On the stage were representatives of the Sorts of Jonadab, Good Templars, Recha bites. Catholic Total Abstinence Society and Sons of Temperance. Mr. Hickey read a letter from Mr. Frank Morrison, secretary of the American Federation of I-abor, who was on the program to speak. The writer ( xpres*?ecl regret that hp was* not able to be present, but said he would attend the next gathering, in February. Judge Nichol's Address. Judge J. W. Nichol, the first speaker, said lie had been .a member of the Jonadab or der for ever twelves years, and there is no apology necessary for joining an organiza tion such as the Order of the Fraternal Rons of Jonadab has proved to be. To any person who has ever been addicted to the use of intoxicating stimulants he declared that "eternal vigilance is the price of so briety," and he held that this truth is just as sacred as the memories of a life of so briety Some men. said the judge, boast fully claim that they can "drink or let it alone." "I am sorry for such a man. He will eventually go with the majority of men who drink. Men know they cannot drink and let it alone.' Mr. James A. Clark, a representative of the Bar Association of this city, was the next speaker. "It is" a good thing to talk for the amuse ment of the public," lie said, "but it is bet ter to work for the redemption of men from the curse of strong drink. ' Mr. * lark spoke of the grandeur of saving one man from the gutter and making of him a good and pure citizen. "The demon of dtink lias dug many graves for genius and character. ? Intem perance is the greatest of all curses, bring ing about immorality, brutality, depravity and poverty." The speaker appealed for the co-opera tion of all in the efforts tlje Fraternal J?n adabs are making to save people from the :rn of intemperance. Ho paid a tribute to the handful of brave, courageous men who formed the order of Fraternal Jonadabs. Tragedies of the Wine Cup. Capt. J. Walter Mitchell of the Spanish War Veterans was ' then introduced. He spoke of "the tragedies of the Vine cup." and related several occurrences in real life which illustrated "the destruction of char acter and all that was good in mankind by over-indulgence in strong drink." He made a plea for practical temperance work on the highway and in the hedges, and urged the Fraternal Jonadabs to go out and bring in the "poor feKows who are bound by the chains of appetite." "The saving of one such human derelict," siid the speaker, "is a grand accomplish ment. The personal touch of the practical temperance worker on the rum-sodden vic tim of alcoholic excesses, his warm hand grasp and kindly words of hope, are bet ter and more effective than all the oratory and theory from Washington to Jericho. I have witnessed the sorrows and desti tution caused by this arch-enemy of men and women, strong drink." concluded Capt. Mitchell, "and I heartily commend the men of the Fraternal Jonadabs for the good work they are doing." Mr. Fabian Columbus of the Rechabite order also spoke at some length, reviewing the work of the new order, and concluded by saying: "Keep the good work up; the best element of our citizens are with you." Other Speakers. Among the other invited speakers were Rev. G. S. J. Hunnicutt of the Christian Church, Mr. Thomas Maloney of the Dis trict of Columbia Catholic Total Abstinence Society, Sam T>e Nedrey of Columbia Typo graphical Union, J. F. Ue Barnes. Robert Emmet O'Brien and Dr. W. S. Odell. The applications of fifteen men were act ed upon, tcri being initiated. Refreshments were served by a commit tee consisting of W. J. Harris. W. R. Mitch ell, R. W. H. Schultz. Charles Blush, Harry I,. Sweeney and S. K. MeXerhar.y. A delegation from Union Tent of the In dependent Order of Rechabites. consisting of D. A. Kelly. T. Malonv, EM Hamman and John'P. Clancy, was present. Also a dele gation from the Catholic Total Abstinence Society. STATEHOOD BILL PASSED. Measure Adopted by the House by 194 to 150.
