The Reception Committee Now Ar- rmigriiiic Minor IJetnllh An Outline of Hie Tivo I)as Celebration. lMnns for Decoration lleins Con Hidered by Tlione Alow; the llontefi. The plans for Admiral Dewey's reception in Washington are completed, save for a few minor details which Chairman Moses and his corps of assistants are hard at work on. A Tew names are to be added to committees, the platoons of the parade may be slightly changed, and the decora tions are yet to be added to the big re viewing stand at Fifteenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. The stand at the east front of the Capitol is also to be dec orated, but as a whole the plans may be said to be completed. The committee on public comfort has ar ranged to care for all the visitors, and bu reaus of information will'be established at all the railroad depots. Messengers will direct visitors to the places they have se lected, or will assist them in finding quar ters in some of the numerous hotels and boarding-houses of the city. The stores celling bunting, flags, lan terns, and other articles of decoration and illumination are already busy supplying tbe demand for such things as will turn the Capital into a mass of glowing colois by day and night, and merchants along the line of parade are figuring on how their big buildings may be transformed from bare brick and stone walls into a sea of bunting and flags. The decorations and illumintlons will ex tend to every quarter of the city, and par ticularly along all the street car lines. Chairman Kern, of the commitee on in dividual decorations, today sent out circu lars to over 300 persons, requesting that they see that the houses In their blocks be decorated and illuminated. He also sent out several thousand circulars with the prices of flags, bunting, .fancy lamps, and colored fire, showing how at a very small expense any private residence may be handsomely decorated and illuminated. The special train which will bring the Admiral to the Capital will leave here for New York at 7:50 a. m. one week from today, bearing on it about fifty of the most prominent citizens of Washing ton and representatives from all the de Dartments of the Capital City and distin guished army and navy officers. The train will leave New York at 1:50 p. m. Monday, October 2, and making a few short stops at the large cities en route, will reach Washington at 6:50 p. m. at the Pennsylvania depot. Sixth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, where a troop of the Third Cavalry as a guard of honor will be waiting, and at 7 p. m., the Admi ral, escorted by the cavalry, will start for the White House, where the President and the Cabinet will be waiting to receive him. The parade of from 10,000 to 12,000 men, comprising all the civic societies of Wash ington, will be forming at the Peace Mon ument, while the reception at the White House Is in progress. About 8 o'clock the Admiral, the President, and Cabinet will prepare to start from the White House for the reviewing stand at Fifteenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, and then will begin the reception. At a given signal the head of the parade will move and as it gets under way 200 men along Pennsylvania Avenue will be gin burning colored lights of red, white, and blue and the buildings will be Illumi nated by private citizens. Eight large searchlights will turn their bright lights along the Avenue, and a mass of colored fire will illuminate the west front of the Capitol. About S:30 o'clock the head of the parade will reach the reviewing stand and by that time Pennsylvania Avenue will be ab'aze. Tbe parade will- last about two hours, Pennsylvania Avenue being kept Illumi nated during the entire time and by 10:30 the Admiral will be escorted to the resi dence of Mrs. McLean. Seventeenth and K Our Offerings Never Fail to Strike the Responsive, Chord of the Thrifty. It's our capability to undersell, the reliableness of what we sell and the terms we sell it at that attracts the greater portion of biryers to our stores. If you could only give thorough inspection to the inner construction before purchasing the furniture some dealers sell arid reveal the freakish nature of its making, then for comparison do likewise with our own make of furniture, it would prove to you a lesson of profit to deal here always. An expert inspector constantly keeps watch over the makers, and not a piece of furniture crosses the threshold of this establishment unless it bears his O. K. mark, which means that it is guaranteed never to fall short of its expectations. You never heard of a dissatisfied customer leaving this store. We take every precaution to do more for our customers than any one else. Every offer displayed in these columns is remarkable, and you'll biry more prof itably this week than ever before.

Tuesday, October 3, will be a general holiday In Washington, and at 10 a. m. an escort of 300 citizens of Washington will be waiting at the Admiral's residence to escort him to the Capitol to receive the ?10,C00 sword voted him by Congress. The Admiral and escort will meet the military parade formed in bis honor at Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, which will Include cavalry from Fort Meyer, ma rines from the navy yard, all the District Militia, bodies of visiting militia and vis iting governors and their staffs. The pa rade will move down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol, where the President, Cabin et, and other distinguished personages will be waiting in the President's room to greet the Admiral and at noon the sword pre sentation will take place on the stand at the east front of the Capitol. At 1:30 p. m. the Admiral will review the troops at the east front of the Caplol, and at 2:30. will be escorted to his residence by 300 citizens. At 4 p. m. a reception will be tendered the Admiral at the Metropolitan Club, at Seventeenth and H Streets. In the evening, at 8 o'clock, the President will give a dinner at the White House In honor of the Admiral. How much longer the Admiral will re main in Washington is not known, but va rious receptions and forms of entertain ment will be planned as soon as he an nounces the length of his visit. Among the governors who have written that they will be here to welcome the Ad miral are Governor Lowndes, of Maryland; Pingree. of Michigan; Wolcott, of Massa chusetts; Smith, of Vermont; Powers, of Maine; Tyler, of Virginia, and Atkinson, of West Virginia. Of the men who served with Dewey at Manila, the following will welcome him to Washington: Captain Coghlan, Lieutenant Chadwick, and Commander Singer, all of the Raleigh; Captain Dyer, of the Balti more; Morgan, of the Olympia; Captain Wood, of the Petrel; Lieutenant Com mander McLean, Captain Wildes, and Rear Admiral Entwlstle.

The local Machinists' Organization, Co lumbia Lodge, No. 174, Intemationnl As sociation of Machinists, will parade on "Dewey Night," as was decided at their last meeting, and the Indications now are that the lodge, 700 strong, will turn out to a man. The committee of arrangements consists of E. S. Stokes, chairman; George M. Guffy, H. G. Kerns, T. A. Holland, W. F. Pierce, J. M. Smoot, and James E. Hall. TO "STAY AN 'EXECUTION'. John T. Fowler'tt Petition AenlnKt a , JuHtlce of the Pence. John T. Fowler today, through his at torneys, Linpomb & Walker, filed a pe tition for certiorari against Justice of the Peace Charles S. Bundy In the suit brought by H. J. Henz &. Co. against the petitioner for debt. Fowler sets forth In his petition that on September 14 last the plaintiffs filed suit against him before Oliver P. Johnson, a justice of the peace, having his office in Georgetown, and also claiming to have a branch office on East Capitol Street; that he, upon being summoned to appear In Georgetown, asked for a change of' venue, which he claims should have caused the case to be referred to Justice of the Peace A. S. Taylor, but that Justice Johnson un lawfully transferred the cause to Justice Bundy for hearing. The latter, without notice to the petitioner, it is alleged, in vestigated the matter, and entered Judg ment against Fowler, and this morning is sued an execution. Fowler now asks that the execution is sued by Justice of the Peace Bundy be declared void and to have all the papers in the case certified to the Supreme Court of the District The amount involved is $35.65.

An Effort to DelnOe to Enlarge mid Improve It. "Now that the Postoffice Department In a few days will be under the same roof with the City Postfflce," remarked Fo t master Merritt to a Times reporter today, "perhaps arrangements can be made whereby the letter carriers and other em ployes of the City Postoffice may have ac cess to the library of the department, which, by the way, I understand is not overstocked. I was somewhat surprised to learn the other day," continued Postmas ter Merritt, "that nearly all the boks in the Postoffice Library were volumes that had found their way Into the Dead Letter Office, and also that large numbers of ! them. Including current magazines, were contributed or donated by the clerks In the department. 1 am sure that if the employes of the City Postoffice are per mitted to obtain books from the depart ment library they will be as liberal in the matter of contributing books and magazines as the clerks of the department. "As yet I have said nothing on this sub ject to the Postmaster General, but after he is settled in his new quarters I shall at the first opportunity present the question to him." Assistant Postmaster Davis says the employes of the Postoffice would certainly appreciate the use of the department li brary. He is of the opinion that if the matter were properly presented to Con gress an appropriation could be obtained with which to purchase standard works. The reason the employes of the City Post office have never had a library, he says, is because the question has never been agi tated by the local press. There are several thousand volumes In the Postoffice Department library, and, with few exceptions, all have been obtain ed from the Dead Letter Office. Congress has never appropriated a dollar for the purpose of buying the works of well known authors for this library, but it is understood that this year an effort will be made to have the library in keeping with the dignity of the Postoffice building. The catalogue of the books of the library is typewritten. PETITIONS AGAINST H.OBEBTS. A Revival of Opposition to the Rep. rcNeiitntive-EIcct Expected. An official of the House of Representa tives, speaking of the thousands of peti tions filed during the last session of Con gress against the seating of Representative elect Roberts, ot Utah, said to a Times re porter this morning: "I do not kno,v whether the sentiment against Mr. Robert3 is as strong nowc as it was last winter, but I do know that if the petitioners de sire the coming Congress to consider their prayers'they must have them reintroduced. The petitions sent to 'our Cngiess and not acted on die with, adjournment. I expsct, however, that those- who protested against the seating of Mr; Roberts will flood Con gress at the very '-beginning of the session with duplicates of their petitions. Of course, Mr. Roberts -will be sworn in the same as any other member-elest, his cer tificate of election being regular and hav ing been accepted by the Clerk ot the House. The newi petitions, if any are in troduced, will be referred to the Commit tee on Elections -when that committee Is appointed. What) action the committee will take no one can tell. "Should the outcry against Mr. Robert3 be as pronounced in December as it was last winter, when the petitions came In by the thousands, it will no doubt make the members, of the Committee on Elections very uncomfortable, for the army of peti tioners scattered over the country will ex pect recognition." Award of an Army Contract. Awards were made today for suplpying the army with 400,000 yards of khaki and 100,000 yards of khaki serge. Proposals for these supplies were opened in New York several weeks ago, it being the intention to purchase all khaki. The latter is equal to the English khaki and Is twenty-eight inches wide. The contract went to Urosss neck, Brossels & Co., ot New York, at 19 9-10 cents per yard. The khaki serge is an extra fine quality made of sea Island cotton, and will be used for the first time In the army. It Is made thlrty-slx inches wide, and the contract went to the Brigh ton Mills of New York at 39 cents per yard. Credit is as free here as bar gains. The first makes the lat ter possible for all. $19.75 .$28.50 Think of the comfort in one of these Couches this winter. Think of the Drlce! Can you miss such a value?

A copy of the annual report and statement of the needs of the Northwest Suburban Citizens' Association was received at the District Build ing this morning. The report contains a num ber of recommendations for improvements which the association refjuests the Commissioners to consider when they make out their estimates for thu appropriations for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1901. Principal among these is the statement of the need of a new poMce station, to be erected in Tcnlcytown. The report states that at present the nearest police station is in Georgetown, and all perons arrested for viola tions of the law are transported from Tcnlcytown to the city station, which is some dUtance. and often results in great inconvenience, not only to the police, but to the people residing in the vi cinity. On account of the inconvenience the rw licc arc thus subjected to, there arc many cases of disorder where no arrest are made. The matter has long been discu.d by the citlxens of the Northwest AjMxiatlon. and they haTe scl eral times made the recommendation that is con tained in their report this year. They a$fc that an appropriation of $15,000 bo nude to erect a suitable station. The association alo recommends that an appropriation of $250.00) for the comple tion of the bridge acre ISccfc Creek, from Con necticut Avenue exttnded. The bridjc in ques tion U a public ncces-ity. it u urged, and will lie a great public improvement, in addition to offering better facilities for travel. fJSjje'yiS quick C A S TO R I A Forlfifofcarf CfcMra.
