Noted Pugilist Will Marry Wealthy
Woman When Divorced.
Nlf\V YORK. April 30.?John L. Sullivan,
pugilist, actor, lecturer and monologlst, la
about to claim a matrimonlaj prize as a
reward for his successful engagement of
11(1 weeks on board the water wagon. Just

Bates, a handsome woman, whom he married

In the big fellow to share her fortune with
Sullivan denies that he Is contemplating
a return engagement with the parson.
Former Deputy Police Commissioner Mack,
attorney for John L. in the divorce proceedings,
and Frank Hall, manager of the
i former champion fighter, yesterday admitted
that John was about to be married.
but refused to give the name of his prospective
Sullivan lived with - his first wife but a
*hort time. When they agreed to separate
John gave her a house In Boston and went
his way. A son born of this union died
many years ago. About fifteen or twenty
years ago Mrs. Sullivan Bued her husband,

Two years ago, when the mighty Sullivan
was doing his best to corner the hop
market, he made the acquaintance of the
woman who will soon become his wife.
Despite John's gruff exterior, he has a
sincere way. of expressing himself that
never fails to win out. They met several
times after that, and the outcome was her
promise to- help John carry his name, provided
he would travel "by the oil-water
route for a period of two years. John haa

In submitting future estimates of appropriations
for public playgrounds In the District
the Commissioners will consider the
advisability of Including in such estimates
a section which will provide In specific
termB for the employment and payment of
the necessarv nersonal services, and. If
practicable, naming the positions and the
compensations attached to the playgrounds
service. This action on the part of the
Commissioners was recommended by John
R. Garrison, auditor of the District, who
has just received a list of employes of the
Playground Association showing the compensation
of each.
Mr. Garrison believes, in view of the fact
that the public playgrounds are to be maintained
by appropriations from Congress and
will be permanent from now on, the employes
of the Playgrounds Association
should come under closer scrutiny of the
Commissioners and should be subjected to
the same rules regarding the payment of
tholr salArloa u? rin thfi other employes Of
the District. Mr. Garrison called particular
attention to the large salaries paid to the
employes of the association, and he stated
that while he can see no objection to the
salaries, he does believe It would be a
much better plan to have this set of employes
considered in the annual estimate*
submitted by the Commissioners to Congress.
In connection with this subject, Mr. Garrison
quoted section 2 of the District appropriation
act, with respect to "he employment
of services of the character mentioned
in the government of the District
of Columbia, in which it is provided "that
no civil officer, clerk, draftsman, copyist,
messenger, assistant messenger, mecnamc,
watchman, laborer or other employe shall,
after June 30, 11)05, be employed In any
office or branch of the local government except
at such rates and in suca numbers,
respectively, as may be specifically appropriated
for by Congress for such clerical
and other personal services for each fiscal
year; and none of these named employes
shall be employed In any office, department
or other branch of the District government,
or be paid from any appropriation
made for contingent expenses, or for any
specific or general purpose, unless such
employment is authorized and payment
therefor specifically provided for In the
law granting me appropriation, ui is authorized
as hereinafter provided for, and
then only for services actually rendered in
connection with and for the. purpose of
the appropriation from which payment is
made and at the rate of compensation usual
and proper for such service."
The Auditor's Beport.
Auditor Garrison reported that, "while
it is maintained by my office that the
laws granting the appropriations for
public playgrounds for the fiscal year
1907-08 authorize the employment of personal
service and payment therefor under
the head of 'supervision' and probably
also under that of 'maintenance,', still it
is not at all clear that these two words
meet the full requirement of the provisions
of the section of the law quoted."
Tiie District appropriation act for the
fiscal year 1907-08 provides an appropriation
of $75,000 for the purchase of playground
sites. The acquisition of these
sites by the Commissioners will place
the playgrounds on a permanent basis.
There was also $5,000 appropriated for
the equipment, maintenance ana yuyms
of salaries of employes. During' the past
season flO.OOO was appropriated for this
purpose and more than half of that sum
was expended for the compensation of
the supervisor and his long list of assistants.
The appointments made by the
supervisor for this season together with
his own salary will call for a monthlyexpenditure
of $76r>.
The Commissioners have nothing to
do with the supervision of the playgrounds
other than ttie handling of the
appropriations and the auditing of accounts,
but the Commissioners stated today
that, in view of the large salary list,
they do not think the $.".000 appropria
tlon for maintenance, equipment, ana salaries
will go very far.
Three Men Await Grand Jury's Action
on Charge of Burglary.
Because the police recognized as stolen
certain clothing worn by prisoners taken
into the first precinct station house a few
days ago, Benjamin, alias Mose, Johnson,
John Taylor, alias I-ong Griffith, and Eugene
Barnes were charged in the Police
Court this morning with breaking into the
tailor shop of Joseph R. Costinet, (X/7 fith
street northwest, and removing a quantity
of clothing therefrom. When arraigned the
trio pleaded not guilty, and waived the
preliminary examination before the lower
CUUri. A lixry wn?. vji u?-i uc iwiuh
to Jail in default of $1,000 bond to await
the action of the grand jury.
Benjamin Johnson was also charged1, with
William Mason, with robbery from Frank
Riley, and after they had waived the preliminary
hearing they were ordered committed
to Jail, in default of $1,000 bond, to
Tiwait the action of the higher tribunal.
As the result of outcries made by Riley
when he was held uj> at the corner o'
Ohio avenue and 18th street a few nights
ago Mason and Johnson were arrested by
Sergt. Lohman and Policemen Messer and
Adams of the first precinct. After Johnson
had been taken to the station house a coat
^ie was wearing was identified as like one
reported stolen from the tailor shop, and
after some "third-degree" work on the
part of the police Johnson Is said to have
admitted the housebreaking offense, and
Included Griffith and Barnes.
Appeal by Associated Charities.
The Associated Charities announces that
a dressmaker and seamstress, a white woman,
who continued at work until exhausted
by sickness, is In need of sanatorium treatment.
Deserted by her husband, and ambitious
to secure a grammar school education
for her daughter, who Is also frail, the
woman has worked longer than she should.
Since last summer she has been too 111 to'do
any work at all. Her disease is pulmonary
tuberculosis?consumption. Her only hope
of recovery, according to the physicians, is
through good food, fresh air and freedom
from worry which a sanatorium would afford.
To keep her at a sanatorium will cost
$10 a week. Five or six months' treatment
will probably be necessary. The other
patient, a flfteen-year-old girl, for whom a
similar fund was raised, Is progressing
The Associated Charities management says
It would be glad to administer, through Its
"golden book fund," any money which may
be sent to 811 G street for the woman In
question. Any funds so designated will be
used exclusively for this woman.
Fuse Leading to Trouble Ignited.
When James Mickey, colored, called at
the home of Addle Jefferson in Shepherd's
alley yesterday afternoon and found the
girl enferlainlng another visitor, the fuse
leading to trouble powder was Ignited, so
to speak. When the smoke of battle cleared
away, George Webster, the visitor In question.
had numerous cuts on his head, and
was bleeding profusely. Mickey was arrested
by Policeman Sager of the second
precinct, and was a defendant before Judge
Mullowny In the Police Court today on a
charge of assault. The court adjudged
Mickey guilty, and ordered him to pay $10
fine or to serve thirty days In Jail.
Mickey claimed that, when he arrived, he
found the girl and her caller In a fight, and
that In acting as peacemaker he hit Webster
over the head with a bottle and caused
the cuts.
Can't Utilize Signal Men.
The acting Secretary of War has been
obliged to reconsider his allowance of the
request of Gov. Hughes to have two companies
of the signal corps of the New
York state militia participate with the
regular soldiers of the coast artillery l*
the joint drills next summer. These signal
men are mounted, and there Is a lack
of accommodation for them. In addition
to this the Joint drills are not of a nature
to require their peculiar services. These
facts have been communicated to Gov.
Hughes by Secretary Oliver with the
statement that the War Department will
be glad to furnish any expert assistance
and instruments needed by the Blgnal companies
when they go Into camp with the
remainder of the New York militia at

Alexandria County.
Arrangements have been made for the
spring examination of public school teachers
for Alexandria county to take place
Slay 2, 3 and 4, under the supervision of

commence promptly at 9 a.m. each day.
Superintendent Clements states there will
be another examination of teachers called
the'"summer examination," held at the
same- places, July 29, 80 and 31, 1907, and
that It Is provided by the state ooard of
education that:
"Teachers may take either of these examinations.
but all who do not expect to |
attend a summer institute should take the
examination In May, as the result of the
July examination for those who do not attend
the summer schools may be madS
known too late for many teachers to contract
for schools and may thus cause them
Inconvenience. Those teachers who take
the examination in May and fall, will not
be permitted to take the July examination
unless they In the meantime attend some
summer institute."
It Is announced that a concert will be
given by the pupils of the Columbia School

committee will tackle the last
chapter of the Kelsey case today. Indications
