The Alaska Governorship Fight Stiii On. ; SENATOR ELKINS FOR CLUM i Sees the President in His Behalf To day. HEMENWAY CALLS FOE HOGGATT How the Selection May Affect the Presidential Nomination Two Years From Now. The Alaskan governorship contest, which went on at the White House today with the same vigor as In the last few days, has taken on an Interesting phase, probably without the President being conscious of It. It is certain that no one has called his attention to It, as that might have defeated the chances of either of the two candidates who have been principally under consid eration. The two men the President has been try ing to decide between In the governorship are Wilfred B. Hoggatt of Juneau and John P. Clum of New York, recently ap pointed postmaster at Fairbanks, Alaska. Hoggart Is on Indiana man and his nomina tion and confirmation as governor would, it is believed, presage the sending of a Fair banks delegation from Alaska to the next republican national oonvention. Clum Is an especially close friend of Postmaster Gen eral Cortelyou. His nomination would, it is hinted, probably mean a delegaton from Alaska either for Cortelyou for President or for some one he desired to have the nomination. Alaska has six votes in the national con vention, and these might cut an important figure in the presidential nomination of two years from now. At any rate, the selection of a governor has possibilities connected with It that have not failed to appeal to those who dabble In politics and try to find motives and hidden springs In everything that is done. Neither of the men mentioned, however, has been much identified in politics during ills life. Mr. Clum has had more experi ence In that direction than Mr. Hoggatt. After leaving the Indian service in the southwest a good many years ago Mr. Clum was elected mayor of Tombstone, Ariz. Hife identification with the government service has caused him to live more or less In a political atmosphere. Hoggatt spent most of his life as an officer of the navy, where politics played little part. He is, however, a man of strong parts and lias the facility of adapting himself to circumstances. The mere fact that he is an Indiana man might not mean that he would work for a Fair banks delegation from the territory, but a significant thing In connection with it is that his main backer is Senator Hemenway, who Is allied with Vice President Fairbanks in the control of the republican organiza tion of Indiana. Senator Hemenwav saw the President yesterday In behalf of Mr. ! Hoggatt, and called again today. Another Hoggatt supporter to see the President was | D. H. Jarvis, who declined the governor ship. Senator Elkins gave the Clum side a boost by urging the President to appoint Mr. Clum. Alaska's Congressional Representation The President is represented as greatly pleased at the passage of the Alaska dele gate bill in the House yesterday. He has recommended a measure of this kind In several messages to Congress, and he will promptly sign the present measure as soon as the slight differences between the House and Senate bills are reconciled in confer ence committee. This measure will result In the first gen eral election ever held In Alaska, for the territory has no local self-govern ment, and all the other offices are appoint ive. The first Alaska election will be held next August, before the freeze-up comes In the northern part of the territory and un der the terms of the bill which passed the House yesterday two delegates are to be elected?one for the short session of the present Congress, which will convene on the first Monday of next December, and the other for the full term of the Sixtieth Con gress. Although two delegate slips are to be elected in this way at the same time, it is probable that each candidate who may be nominated will run for both terms. R. S. Ryan of Nome, who is now in Wash ington, is one of the leading candidates for election as delegate from Alaska, and others will undoubtedlyannounce their can didacy as soon as the delegate bill becomes a law. How far party politics will go Is not seen, although the two leading parties boti. have strong men In the territory. It is presumed that the parties will put out their candidates In the usual way, and that the race will be between democrat and re publican, unless a socialist should be nom inated. SUSPECTED OF CHIME. Eugene Hall Held Pending an Inves tigation. Eugene Hall, an Inmate of the Soldiers' Home, is being lield in the District Jail ?pending further investigations regarding the stabbing of Charles H. Sergeant, also an inmate of the Soldiers' Home, last Sat urday night. A charge of assault with a dangerous weapon was placed against Hall in the Police Court tojlay, and on account of the physical condition of the victim, who is still confined In the hospital, the case was continued indefinitely. Shortly after 0 o'clock Saturday night last llall was seen running toward the stables of the Soldiers' Home grounds, yelilng at the top of his voice: "1 killed the ." Nothing was thought of the circumstance, as Hall was subject to frequent attacks of Illness. About half-past 11 o'clock that night Sergeant's body was found lying near the Scott spring. He was very weak, but was hastily removed to the hospital on the grounds, and was found to have two severe wounds In his back, one of them penetrat ing the lung. His condition Is still re garded as serious, although he Is improv ing. Hall has denied that he attacked Ser geant, and Sergeant up to the present has made no statement as to the Identity of his assailant. Representative Hill to Lecture. Arrangements have been made for an ad dress by Representative Ebenezer J. Hill of Connecticut before the Connecticut state people residing in Washington and their friends the evening of March 23. His topic will be his recent trip with the Taft party to the Philippines, and the address will be delivered at Grand Army iiali, 1410 Penn sylvania avenue. The meeting will be held under the auspices of the Connecticut Re publican Association. Suffering From Morphine Poisoning. A young man giving his name as Robert Jones, his age as thirty years, and his ad dress as St. Louis, was taken to the Emer gency Hospital today and treated for mor-. phine poisoning. He was taken, to the in stitution in a cab'from house 1210 C street northwest by Dr. Mitchell of 619 13th street northwest, who had been called to the house to attend him. In addition to being sick, Jones claimed that he had been rob bed of $160. His condition was thought to be critical at the time he was removed *.o the hospital, but later in the day the sur geons said he was out of danger. The patient gave his occupation as tiiat of a painter, but beyond saying he was from St. Louie he would give the police no In formation regarding himself. Capt. Boardman detailed Detectives Peck and Warren upon tl?e case. It is thought tliat the patient win be able to leave the hospital later In the day. HAHN'S "REMODELING SALE ?Ends Thursday Evening?

If Concession Be Not Made Members Will Go Out the 1st of May. The troubles of the master plumbers of Washington were Increased today by the announcement that the plumbers' laborers union will declare a strike on May 1 unless their demand for an Increase of pay Is j promptly acceded to, and by the further announcement that the plumbers appren tices' union may decide tomorrow to go on a sympathetic strike with the locked out journeymen. This, It is said, would almost paralyze the plumbing business here. Each of the employing plumbers mem bers of the Masters' Association has re ceived an ultimatum from the union of la borers that the wage scale must be raised from $2 to $2.50 or the workmen will go on strike May 1 which Is the beginning of the active building season. As to the apprentices, who are now doing the major part of the plumbing work for the numerous establishments here, a mas ter plumber informed a Star reporter this afternoon that the boys' union was under the control of the union of journeymen, and that the latter may call the appren tices out at any moment. In order to meet the conditions that con front them It Is said the master plumbers at the meeting of their executive commit tee late yesterday afternoon decided to use every effort to secure a supply of plumbers from other cities. It is also said that Mr. Caverly, chairman of the master plumbers' committee, has gone to Baltimore and other cities In an effort to secure a force of workmen. In his efforts It is stated he will be assisted by the master plumbers' associations of other cities. Apprehend No Trouble. Master plumbers do not apprehend that the present strike will seriously interfere with the building season. They say the pri mary work on the new buildings, bricklay ing, etc., will go on as usual and when the structures reach the point of comple tion where it becomes necessary to put in the plumbing work, the masters expect to have a sufficient force of Journeymen to go on with their part of the operations in any ] event, whether the lockout is declared oiT or not. The outlook this afternoon was that the conditions of the lockout would be further complicated before long. The plumbers' laborers are said to be in hearty sympathy with the plumbers, and It was hinted to day that they may decide, should they deem It necessary as an emergency meas ure, to go out even before the date an nounced In their ultimatum May 1. The emergency may be considered to have arisen should the employers place non-union plumbers in their shops. The laborers may then decline to work with the non-union ists and their strike be precipitated. Some of the master plumbers were In formed today that the Journeymen have a surprise they intend to spring on them, but the nature of the alleged surprise could not be learned. Deal With Five Unions. A master plumber today explained that the employers have to deal with five unions of employes. These are the Journeymen pllmbers. the apprentices, helpers, an as sociation of laborers who now receive $1.73 a day as wages, and the better grade of ?killed laborers, who receive $2 a day. The helpers and apprentices' unions are sepa> rate and distinct bodies. The apprentices are allowed to handle tools, while the help ers are not. Only two apprentices are now allowed to each shop, no matter whether the shop em ploys two Journeymen or twenty. The em ployers, however, are entitled to two help ers to every three Journeymen. There Is no rule as to the employment of laborers In either number or grade. . The masters cialm that the existing lock out is really for the protection of the help ers, and they are not expected therefore to go on strike should the apprentices do so. Further, the master plumbers have notified the helpers that should they go on strike they will never be re-employed, but their places Slled with other men. It Is said the "hang-out" place, or clear ing, house for the 12 per day plumbers' la borers, Is about the pubUc fountain at Otfih street and Pennsylvania avenue northi/est, while the $1.75 per day men congregate at 6th street and Louisiana avenue. It 1* to thee* points Lb* masters go when they de sire to employ laborers of either of the classes. Meeting This Evening. The master plumbers will meet this even ing, it Is said. The board pt directors of the Journeymen plumbers' union will also meet this evening: at Costello's Hall, 6th and G streets northwest. It is expected that as a result of t'he two meetings there may be interesting developments tomorrow. The union of plumbers' apprentices will meet tomorrow night and may decide to walk out, it is said. The regular meeting of the plumbers' union is Wednesday night. March J4. The plumbers deny that they have control of the apprentices' union. Leg Fractured. W. A. Dlvver, twenty-six years of age, living at 1303 C street southwest, was treated at the Emergency Hospital this morning for a fracture of his right leg. He Is a telegraph lineman and was working near the south end of the Highway bridge, when his leg was struck by a pole and the injury Inflicted. Will Deliver Addresses at Bazaar. Mr. Charles A.

Judge Ilarald Salomon, member of tie law courts uf Stockholm, Sweden, and *p. - clally commissioned by the Swedish gov ernment to mak? :i trip through this ? nun try to study the juvenile -nurts ;<nd the manner of handling: juvenile offenders. In a visitor In this city, and he was an ln terestcd attendant at. the Juvenile court at 12 o'clock today in '.lie Police Court building. Judge Salomon '.s greatly inte-ested in juvenile courts and will spend four month* in this country. He has already visited the courts in New York city, ;.nd came to Washington from the metropolis. H< goes from here to San Francisco, and on his return trip will visit Denver, Chicago. In dianupolls. Cleveland, Bostou and possibly other cities. Judge Salomon stated that up to a year ago ?there was no special legislation in his country for dealing with Juvenile offenders. Up to that time they were practically treat ed as adults, but when they were under fourteen years of age they w< re sent home to be whipped. The courts, however, had no way of knowing that their Judgments were carried out. About one year ago new laws were put into effect. There is now a commission for dealing with Juvenile of fenders fifteen years or under. th>- eom misslon being composed of ministers, law yers and persons from other professions. Child Not Before Court. The child who is charged is not brought before it. The evidence in the case and the report of the probation officers is brought before the commission through doc ument* and the commission is then called on to decide. Judge Salomon believes that it is an excellent thing to have the child brought into court, for in many cases a word of warning from the judge and a lecture for the patent will do more good than any order for a punishment to he carried out by the probation officers or t ho officials who carry out the same duties as the probation officers of the country. Stockholm now his one reform school, but it Is inadequate in Us provisions. The Judge was especially Interested In tilt* house of detention, which he visited after he had attended the Juvenile Court. He !* impressed with the need for keeping ?.he young offenders separate from the older ones, and the house of detention Is a unique feature of our local system. Judge Salomon held a short conferen ? with Commissioner West this morning, and he was accompanied on his trip to th? Juvenile Court and the house of detention this afternoon by Probation Officer < of the board of children's guardians. Judg* Mullowny also described to.him some of the essential features of a Juvenil* court. "I want you to have one idea." s*id Judge Mulowny. "You cannot be suc cessful in your juvenile court system with out a sufficient number of probation offi cers. They must watch the boy. the home and must aid the court in many ? And the exacting duties he has to perform e quire much time." Held on Two Charges. Henrietta Mason, a fifteen-year-old col ored girl, is confined in the Kmerg*-ncy Hospital with a fractured skull and is In a serious condition as the result of a blow on the head which she received early <;i!* morning. John Jacks n was locked up soon after the girl was sent to the hos pital by Policeman Jukes of the fourth t:e cinct, and is charged with the ,'tssault. At the same time Kddle Hall was slightly in jured on the side of the face, and Jackson must also answer for assaulting hint. Both cliarges were tiied against Ja.K?on In tno Police Court this morning and the trials were continued indefinitely. Jacks ?n was committed to Jail to await the outcom ; ot the girl's injuries.
