April 10. An imprefasion prevails here that Governor Roosevelt will bo forced to accept the nomination for Vice President on the Republican national ticket if the Republican managers have their waj. He has dcclaredln the most positive terms that he does not want the nomination, but Senator Hanna and Presi dent McKinley believe that no other man would add so much strength to the ticket in- the do'ibtful States. It seems to be the intention of the man agers of the Convention to inflame the. Roosevelt sentiment to such warmth that tae nomination fgr Vice President will be given to him by acclamation and with ro much enthusiasm that he will not be able to refuse it without lajing himself open to the charge that he Is falling in his du ties to his partj-. Senator Piatt has practically pledged himself to the renonunation of Roosevelt for Governor, but his failure to place any obstacle in the way of his nomination tor Vice President is attracting the attention of Republican leaders all over the State Though the relations between Senator Piatt nnd the Governor are outwardly cor dial, the machine leaders would not bo corrj- to have a more pliant man in tue ixecutlve chair if thej' could place hua there without endangering the State. Tho only way that Roosevelt can be sidetrack ed Is bj 'nominating him for Vico Presl mat. Instructions were sent out seveiai vveck3 ago that the district conventions called to choose delegates to the State convention, which will be held to elect delegates to the Philadelphia Convention, should not demnul the renominatlon of the Governor. With few exceptions these orders have been obeved, and pply resolutions com mending the administrations of the Gov ernor ard of President MoKinlej have been adopted. Chairman Odell, of the Republican State Committee, said jesterdaj that the State Convention next week would not endorse Governor Roosevelt for a second term Neither will it endorse Lieutenant Gover nor Woodruff for Vice President. 'This convention was called for the pur pose of electing delegates at large to tho National Convention." said Mr Odell, "and it is not within its province to take anj action m regard to State affair-, The Governor does not expect anj endorse ment at this time." No opportunitj has been lost bj tho Go.irror to siguifj his unwillingness to figure on the national ttcl.et He told Sena tor Piatt on Sundaj that he did not wish to run and he has written to Senator Hanna telling him that he believes he can be of more use to the national ticket as a candidate for Governor than as a candi date for Vice President Governor Roosevelt will go to Phila delphia several days iu advance of the Na tional Convention and It Is not improva ble that he wil make ore or the speeches seconding McKlnlej's nomination He will do what he can single handed to prevent the honor of a Vice Presidential nomina tion from being thrust upon him If he succeeds in evading It Cornelius N Blis will probablj be named Senator Piatt s not eager for the nomination of Mr Bliss and this is an additional reason whj he is not trjing to prevert Roosevelt s nomina tion. . TESTING GOLD COIN. i:blbltM In n Mnrjliiml Case Sent to This Citj. FREDERICK, Jdd.. April 10 George F. Foster, of the United States Secret Serv ice Department at Washington is in Fred crick to investigate the uttering of alleged spurious coin purporting to be a ?20 Kel logg. California gold piece, by Lcroj An derson, on Tridaj last who lb now in jail in default of ?600 bail for the action of the court. The Secret Service detective accom panied bj State's Attornej Worthiiigton and Sheriff Troxell, had the coin found on Cramer, Anderson's companion, on the oc casion examined bv James E Doll, an ex pert jeweler, who tested It as to Its weight and quality. A hole was bored m the cen tre of the coin and the ccntro as well as the borings submitted to tlie acid test, which they stood and proved the metal to be gold. As the coin had no ring what ever, Mr. Doll thinks there must be some foreign matter In it. so it was decided to have it sent to Washington, where It will be submitted to experts and, if necessarj'. assayed to learn its composition Dr. Cramer's wife stated that the coin was obtained from a Frederick bank, and she sent it to her father in Liberty with some other monej she owed him. It eventuallj found its waj back to Fred erick for deposit in another bank, where it was lefused "I gave mj husband a $20 bill Fridav to redeem It with father." she said, "and asked him to bring if back, when It seems to have met the fate already told " The detective, went put over the route taken bj Anderson and Cramer last Fridav to learn further particulars about the case and to determine if it would warrant the Government taking charge of it. Drs, J. O. Hendrix and C. F. Goodell re moved the bullet from Cramer's leg, which lodged under the knee cap, when shot by Officer Six Trlday while attempting to stop Anderson and Cramer as thej entered the city pursued bj two deputy sheriffs. They were unable to locate the bullet in the right thigh, and it Is now said that he will be taken to a hospital in Baltimore to have it removed. Lavvjer Trank L Stoner has been retained bj Cramer, and it is said he will bring suit against the city of Fred erick for heavy damages for being shot. He will perhaps be a cripple for life. John Wood, as counsel for Anderson, swore out a writ of habeas corpus before Judge McSherry to have him released from custodj'. The hearing will be held Wed nesday morning. Anderson Is In jail in default of $800 bail $200 on the charge of "flimflamming" Walter Palmer, of Mjcrs ville, out of some money on an electric car near Middletovvn, $100 for the alleged lar-cenj- of some monev from Mrs Clara Harrj-, the tollgate keeper, on Trlday. and $300 for attempting to pass an aiiegeu spurious coin.

The Letter of Hie Oomnilssloneri to Hciir V. Hot. The District Commissioners have replied to Henry M. Hojfs letter, mak.ng certain allegations regarding repairs and building materials used on' the building of the Re form School for Girls. They quote the closing paragraph of Mr. Hojt's letter, which read3 as follows: "The Board of Trustees, however, de sire to state expressly that, not jet having received any communication from the Commissioners in refr-onss to their re:olu tion requesting the Commissioners to sus pend work upon the new building for the purpose of correcting defects thtr in. and tnforcing against the contractors the loal liability for such defects In nae.laior construction, they do not intend this let ter to be taken in anj waj or to any ex tent as a waiver of the position adopted in said resolution." The Commissioners state that they re plied to this letter, sending copias of re ports from the Building In pector's Office, trom which It was bellved Uat It would Le understood that the labor and materia s placed In the building, vvhi.e not the beet that the market afforded, vvre of the best quality of the kinds specified, and the Commissioners considered the ep anat oa given to fully answer objewtions is to ten uualitj of work and material involved. In regard to the general question of the construction of the building, the Commis fcioncrs state that tho laws of Congress re quire the building to be constructed bj the Commissioners of the District of Columbia. "Through courtesy alone they have 'de ferred to tho wishes of jour board as far as possible allowing them to select the ar chitect and to prepaie the plans with him, the onlj reservation being that the Com missioners were to see that the building be completed within the appropriation al lotted, as required by law. To do this Is was necessary to specify certain classes of ma terials which, while not the best in the market, were jet, in the opinion of the Commissioners, safe and good for the pur poses intended. They were also compelled to adopt certain constructions which would lave been somewhat different had tho funds In hand been greater. The specifica tions and modifications, how'ever, were full j approved by jour board." In view- of all the circumstances the CommltsIoncTs declare that it is impossible for them to take the action requested by the Board of Trustees of the Reform School as thej think that no cause or authority exists therefor.

The street car service between Congress Heights and the transfer station at Ana costia Is about as bad as it can b, if ire representat ons of the people of Ccrgrcsa Heights are to be believed Thej have repeatodlj complained to the Dlstim Commissioners about the matter, and the letter, in turn, have called the attert'on of tho Washington Traction and E.eitr.c Companj to the coiiplclnts filed wit a taem. The service is not Improved, saj the citi zens of the territorj indliated and com plaint? grow louder and more frequent. Onlj jestert-ay the Commissioners re ceived a long protest from th rcM' e in terested at Congress Heights against the poor car service, and asking the Commis fdonera to exercise their authorltv to com pel the companj to make it better A similar communication, forwarded fcome time ago by the Commis-iorera to the railroad companj, brought ta:k an answer to the effect that beginning with April 1 a ten-minute schedule on the line would be placed In operation.
