You have already accomplished so much in tho reform direction that we expect any thing from such able management. This ' reform will be a great boon to our dry as those people contract debtsthat they -will not pay and the business men suffer. I am myself ouo of the victims.

John Tracy, superintend ent or Public Charities, the latter attend ing at the request of the committee. Col. Tracy, called on, gave some valuable information to tho committee as to the practicubiHtyof the scheme and themethods by which it could be made a practical suc cess. Tlie special purpose of the meeting was to Have the committee informed as to tlie lcgalstalus of the proposed association with Telerenceto its incorporation. INCORPORATION IN VIRGINIA. It lias been understood that such corpora tion is not practicable under the laws of the District, and hence the committee ap pointed Mr. Siddons to report on how: the enterprise could be pushed forward without waiting on the passage or a law by Con gress to cover the contingency. Mr Siddons lookwl into ttie law of several of the adjacent Plates, and selected that of Virginia as applicable and favorable to Uie object m view lie, therefore, after a full statement of this phase of the delay, recommended an incorporation under the Virginia law. A resolution adopting Mr Siddons' sug gestion was then passed A resolution was also passed calling for a public meeting, winch will be held on Wednesday afternoon next at 12 30 o'clock, at the rooms of the Board or Trade At this meeting the committee will report all its transactions The financial details agreed upon yes terday were that the capital 6ioek be fixed at GO. 000, the stock to be divided into 6bares of S10 each TOUR PER CENT AT TIRST. It is proposed to loan money at 10 percent, per annum, which, if $30,000 in stock be secured, will enable tho association to pay the stockholders per cent, per annum. An increase of the stock will, of course, mean the payment of a larger dividend. It was tho sense of the committee that Congress should Iw asked for some legis lation, but tlie situation was also re garded as one that admitted of no delay, and the matter was pushed to the conclu sion reached yesterday. The committee has undertaken some in teresting work with relation to the com plction of tho plan, the result of winch will nppear at the public meeting on Wednesday next. The feeling of the committee Is thattlipre will lie a satisfactory response to the Invitations to subscribe stock. The Vir ginia law will Iw shown to be one which provides ample guarantees for stock holders. new Ei'woitTH cinjncn. Handsome Structure to He Erected nt Seventh nnd A Streets.

A convict, whose sentence had expired, sent m a number of cocoanuts. They went to convicts with whom he worked while a prisoner. That afternoon after the cocoanuts liad been distributed ex-Representative Fow ler, who Is the officer in charge of the build ings nnd grounds, dropped into a report down in the city. Tlie barkeeper accosted him with: "Well, did you felloes get any cocoanuts out there to-day for the prisoners?" "I believe some did come out," said Fow ler "Why?" "Tiicy were loaded with whisky, weren't they?" asked the bartender, with a laugh. Fowler waited to hear no more, but dashed off to the "pen." Tlie convicts who had got the cocoanuts were brought lefore the deputy warden and eacli acknowledged that his present contained liquor. Tlie ex-convict, who was a shrewd crook, had bored into each cocoanut and emptied it of its milk. Then he poured in all the liquor it would hold, and, taking a cork, plugged up the hole in the nut. The cork was so near like the shell of the cocoanut that it was not detected, Cincinnati Enquirer. Good Enough.

Individual Money Sharks Will Now Ho Taken In lland Specinl Atten tion to Navy Vnrd Vampirea. The Shylock companies which undertook to fight the buzsawofpublicopinioiiagaliibb usury, as crystallized by The Times, have thrown up the sponge. The Capital Guarantee Loan Company is settling up itseat.es ouLoC court right along now without litigation Mrs Jennie Mes ser's case was settled yesteiday and im mediately aiierwaid about a half dozen others, in all of which the plaintiffs were made decidedly happy There are numerous others under consid eration, bo til for the Capital Guarantee Loan Company and the, Washington Mortgage Company. It appears that the companies are legally entitled to an appraiser's fee, and also for the recording fee, whenever the deeds of triisL wereactually recorded Tlie arrange ment of the amounts of legal interest to Avliich tfie companies are entitled and their set-off claims for recording and appraiser's fees are the only mailers that .stand in the way or the payment of all claims Messrs Ralston .S. Siddons have about forty or fifty cases in hand, which will require some little time to consider and to bring to a final setttlcment The princi ple, however, for which they have contended against these companies, have been settled, and it appears that they will be successful in nil the cases leferred to them. The individual Slij locks arc expected to be given another unpleasant turn There are two of tliem against whom cases have been prepared, and if tlicy do not return to the city for what may lie shown to be a scheme to avoid arrest, their property will be attached, by which means it is cer tain their presence will be secured in court Oiie of the new cases is that of a mechanic at the Navy Yard This caEc will perhaps illustrate tlie condition of affairs at that fertile field of money-grabbing, where Shy locks charge 210 pur cent per annum Tlie second case to be taken into court is expected to come to a hearing to-morrow, aud involves the custody of a child. MATtlON HHANDON IN JAIL. Judge Colo Sentences Her to Ninety Days' Imprisonment. Marion Caesar, alias Brandon, a stylishly dressed mulatto woman, who ran a way last Tuesday from a United Suites subpoena to testify against Auffort and Desmond in tlie Washington Steamboat Company bur glary case, was sentenced by Judge Cole yesterday to ninety days in Jail, and an hour later began to serve her term She was brought back here Wednesday after noon When she was called in Judge Cole's court yesterday Thomas L Jones answered as her attorney, and was grunted a continuance until Monday, that he might prepare the case, but ills client objected to this, and Judge Cole gave her an immediate hearing- Upon her own testimony she Js a native of Tredericksburg, Md ; lived for a time in a disreputable locality here, and since January 1 last has been employed at Harry Candler's place at Jackson City She said nobody told her to refuse to tes tify and to go away She did this of her own accord. She went away because she thought she would be sent to jail as a witness Judge Cole said he had supposod her ignorant but found her abundantly in telligent to understand tho offence when she was guilty of it It was a wilful dis regard of the law Attorney Jones begged for n nominal fine, urging that she had run away through fear of prison not Knowing It was con tempt of court Mr. Biruey replied that sho had acted wilfully and for a purpo&e Her absence hatl deprived the government of very Im portant evidence and hindered a conviction Judge Cole said he would not unposo a fine, for the defendant would proliably escape by somebody else paying it She must go to jail for ninty days Mil. PUGI1 HIGHLY "ELATED. Ilns Come Out Victorious in the Pub lic Sjtuci? CahCs. At last tlie war between Prosecuting Attorney Piigh nnd the Louisiana ave nue and Ohio avenue merchants, in the public occupancy cases, has come to au ead with Mr Tush the victor Mr Tupli yesterday morning in open court called tlie matter to the attention of Judge Kimball "I understand." said he. "that the haboas corpus proceedings iu tlie case of John C Isel have been abandoned and the de fendants found guilty by your honor last week all promise to clear their goods off the sidewalks I have givou them until Wednesday to comply with the law and they aie getting within tho legal limits as fast as ih-y can " As will be remembered the trial of merchants under the old regulation pro hibiting the use of public ground for any private purpose, began over a month ago, and those defendants who had attorneys sued out writs of certiorari to carry the cases from the police court to tho upper court Persistent Prosecutor Pugh, how ever, decided that the writs were only procured for the purpose of delay and filed a warrant against tlie law-brcakors every day thereafter There came it long struggle by the as sistant prosecutor ending in a trial of the merchants before the police court and their convictiou It was then that Mr. Isel concluded to make his a test case It was his purpose to be sentenced and then by habeas corpus proceedings to get his case before a higher tribunal Mil. IHtADY IS SUItPRISED. no Says Ho Dock Not lleirulnTe WuRes Paid at tho "UnUerrtUy. The situation as regards the wages paid the men at work on the Catholic Uni versity lias not changed since last Satur day, Mr. Edward Brady, the general su perintendent at the work, adhering to his resolution not to accede to the demands of the union men. Mr. Brady said yesterday that he was very much surprised to hear so much talk about a matter that really amounted to nothing. As regards himself, he says It In no way concerns him what wages the men get, neither has he anything to do with regulating them, and why he should be constantly mixed up with the whole affair is more than he can understand. As a matter of fact, he said, it would be to his personal interest if the men were paid the highest rates for their labor, for then ho would be individually bene fited, as his own pay is governed by the amount ot money expended in the con struction of tlie building In a word, he says, he is paid a salary in direct pro portion to the expenditures made. With the prices paid for labor on the building, he says, he has nothing whatever to do, for it is a mattor left entirely with tho contractors. In Behalf of Younsr Horry. Cartings Springs, Va., July 2, 1895. Editor Times: Ttefcrriug to tlie recent accident at Carlin's Springs, Va., by which one James Newsom came to his death from tlie effect of a blow on the head, at the hands of Mr. Louis Berry, a young man of good character and demeanor, the resi dents of the village appreciate tho correct report of The Times on the accident, as well as the further fact that Mr. Berry was not directly referred to as a murderer. For Mr. Berry, I wish to say that I have kiio'n n him some time, and have found him lo be a perfect young gentleman, kind and obliging, and not of a disposition to look for trouble, aud am satisfied that he no doubt thought his life ru danger, and that it was time to act. It would seem a hardship for this young man to bo com pelled to serve a term. CHARLES SIMMS. OF A SUCCESSFUL PHYSICIAN'S EHORMOUS PRACTICE. Only Curable Cases Ac cepted for Treatment.

Some Loft tho Colony, Hut Nearly All ltelurned ot Their Own Accord. None Shot or Wounded. The Department of. State is in receint 'ot a report from Jesse W. Sparks, consul at Piedras Negras, on the colony or negroes brought rrom Alabama and Georgia last February to Tlahuaiila, Mexico, concra ing whose treatment there have been many conflicting reports. Reports have appeared in American newspapers that some ol the colonists escaped from the farm, were pursued by W. H, Ellis, the colored man who imported them, nnd that thirly-two were shot down, while the survivors were captured, taken back to the colony, and subjected to harsh punishment. The consul's investigation has shown this story to lie almost entirely without foundation. Forty-three of the colonists did leave the colony, but Iho leader of the band, Joe Caldwell, has stated that his motive in going away was a ruse to satisfy his sons, who wished to tun away, that flight was impracticable. Caldwell led the band over the mountains and then back to tlie colony. All were brought back in safety, except twenty-one men and women, who separated from the others and in sisted upon going on ahead. These have not been traced, but some of them reached tlie United States, and, It Is probable, spread reports ot the death of the thirty two returned to. the colony. No one was Bliot or wounded, but Cald well states he was btruck by a Mexican with tlie barrel of a gun and otherwise injured and confined for nearly two weeks in tho colony lock-up. The band was met nnd badly frightened by tome Mexicans who had been sent out from the colony to find them and relieve them, as they wore without food and water. Mr. Charles Paul Macklo, an American, who investigated tho affair, corroborates this statement, and declares that the col onists are receiving good treatment, al tliougli many of them have been sick from change of water, diet, etc. They now have tho benefit, however, of good medical attendance. Although somo of the col onibts tell stones ot harsh treatment, the consul Is indisposed to credit them, and at tributes their troubles to the fact that they are in a strange country, among strangers, aud do not speak or understand tho language. The negro manager, Ellis, rules, how ever, in tho consul's opinion, with great severity, and the negroes say he made representations to them in America which ho has failed to carry out in Mexico. THE SEASON'S CANNING. Valuable Suggestion, for Housekeep ers Who WNh Fruit for "Winter. There are few things the average house wife takes more pleasure in than her display of canned fruits and jellies, and so simple is the processor making that there is no ex cuse for failure The three principal methods of preserving fruit is by conserving it. the proportion being a pound of sugar to a pound of fruit; canning, one-quarter or one-half pound of sugar to a pound, and jellies, which are a pound ot sugar to a pint of juice But tho last is really theonly fixed rule, as different fruitsoftenneedsdifrerent proportion from those given to obtain the best results It is or first importance to have every thing or the best quality, for poor fruit will not keep, and cheap sugargives cloudy results. Granulated or loaf sugar (the former I usse in preference, though some think the more expense the more sansfac tion) and sound, not too ripe fruit, are es sential Then the cans must be looked to, es pecially the caps and rubbers If there is the slightest chance that the latter are not m perfect order, it is better to buy new ones nnd not n-,k the result. The preserv ing kettle should be of granite ware or porcelain; the old-fashioned brass kettle is so liable to poison the ingredients. In cae it is Uhed it should be scoured thoroughly with salt and vinegar When the fruit is ready to put on the stove, the cans aud jelly tumblers, which ever are to be used, should also b- put on in a vessel of boiling water, with a cloth in the bottom to prevent breaking Old fashioned housewives always take the wash boiler and boil the cans in it. but a large dish pan will answer If thecans or glasses are not boiled, there is danger or breaking Avhen the hot fruit is put in Many con tent themselves with slipping a silver fork in each can. but it Is much less trouble to boil them all at once. Berries are alwajs looked on as the best jelly rruit, though they can be canned or turned into jam, which is always relished by children. Currants, raspberries, both red and black, blackberries and gooseberries all come in the summer months, and make fine preserves, either singly or m combina tion. All jelly takes the same proportion, pound for pound, or pound to a pint of juice. The modus operandi in all cases aTe alike. The rruit, which should not be too ripe, is put In the kettle with a little water to prevent burning at the bottom. When they have cooked to pieces, strain through a jelly bag. Some alwajs u-e flannel, in which case It is better to.Iet the. fruit strain during the night, for it takes a very long-time to drop through. I use two thicknesses of cheese cloth and find it very satisfactory, and IL aKsa-sss A -i Are You- Goin Away? - "" - Will you or your boy need a new suit pair of pants or lightweight overcoat when you take 3rour vacation? You can get them now at exactly two-thirds of "first-of -season" prices because we're rebuilding and want to sell this stock before the workmen reach our first floor. "We don't" ask you to choose from any '"special table" lots, either but you are free to pick anything in the house, without reserve including the Blue and Black Serges and "Worsteds and take it for a third less than its marked price. Think of the saving think of the big stock you have to select from then make a list of your needs and hurry and fill it. This is a sale of our regular stock made by us at our own factory and your same old privi lege of money tack holds good, same as if you were paying full price. The difference between the old and the new prices is your actual saving. The "extreme heat" goods such as Unlined Serges Alpacas and Duck Pants are excluded.

When the bags are used, they must be hung by the stove. The juice is measured and the sugar added. When it begins to boil, it should be skimmed carefully, never al'owmg the scum to go under the surface, or the jelly will not be clear. Twenty minutes boding: should be sufficient. Some test it by beat ing a little cool in a taucer, when it will thicken If cooked enough. A simple method is to take up a spoonful and let it run off slowly. It the last drops hang on the end like a little ball, it is done. The tumblers should then be'placed in the sun to thicken to top a little. When perfectly cold, the next day is soon enough, tie up. Some put brandied paper over the top, others melted paraffine. I ure buttered paper cut to fit in the mouth. Then paste paper over the top and label and keep in a coot, dry place. Raspberries and currants combined make a delicious jelly, using five boxes of the -former to one of the latter. The canning is the same as with other fruits.

GOING TO FIRE BIG GUNS Double-Turret Monitor Ampbitrita Sent to Sea for a Teat! "Effect of the Concu,s.ion Upon th Deck of the Vessel I to B& A certalued. To settle at once the effect of the blast of a great gun upon the deck of aaaraered vessel. Secretary Herbert has given orders that the double turret monitor Am phi true, nowat the Norfolk navy yard.go to seaand practice with her guns. The ship will sail as soon as Chief Engineer Hannnm can reach Norfolk. While on her trial cruise in southern waters, the Amphitnte fired all of ber guns, but so far as known none ot the bg guns were discharged across the deck as they would be in action were the ship to meet an enemy bow on. The data gath ered in this test is expected to be or value in settling the question, now agitatiag the Navy Department, as to the location of the turrets on the two new battleships, as fear has been expressed by the ordnance bureau that the-blast from the eight-inch, guns, it they are fired directly over the twelve inch guns, will blow in the cover of the turrets of the latter guns. The officers of the Construction Bureau feel no apprehension on that sosre and claim that the experiments at Indian Head were not conclusive, for the reason that the eight-inch gun in the test was placed within twenty-four inches of the covering plate of the turret, which was not properly sup ported, while m the plans for ttie battle ships the guns are at least fifty inches above the big turrets, and they can. it la said, be given any desired degree ot strength, either by increasing meir thick ness or adding suitable framine below. In the -Amphitr,,;?, the ten-inch guns in the two turrets are placed in Hichoorn tur rets, slightly modified, six feet above the deck. The latter is made of two inches of steel, faced with four inches ot yeltow pine timber, so tbat it is felt that it wHl pass the test successfully. Still it is dtsiraWe to know just how the sip will bebave in action and hence the order for t!ie test Weston "Waived Exa ml nation.
