The appearance of two women, cacti named Mrs. Myron Weeks, at police head quarters jesU-rday afternoon in epiest of a warrant for Myron Weeks, an old one armed pensioner, on the charge ot bigamy, brought to light a curious matrimonial complication. Mrs. Weeks No. 1 was the spokeswoman and all she said ami did wah cheerfully and emphatically indorsed by her namesake No. 2 i As the old soldierls alleged second mar riage took place in'Arundel county, the two wives were informed that in onler to legin criminal proceedingsagainsthimthey would be obliged to go to Annapolis, it being the county teat of Arundel county. - It appears from tbeir story that in May, 1890, Mrs. Amanda Graham, a widow, who then and now niils at No. 2!!3 1'enn sy'vanla avenue was married to Myron V I'kn at the Mttroimlltnn M. H. Church. Th'j lived togttlfrr at Mrs. Graham's resi dence only thnv weeks, when Weeks, after getting what little money Ids i ife had, deserted her and loft the city. She has never heard from him since but says that Miehas often seen him oi( the street cars. About two years"Jater Weeks made his appearance In Odenton, Md , and became acquinled with a Miss Zink It was there on September 1, 1SU2. the two were made man and wife T1k Ir.cd happily to gether In that way bacK Maryland town for nearly three years On May 25 last the two took a trip to Baltimore, and ft being near pension day the old soldier left his wife, saying that he was going to Washington -to get Ins money and would return the next day Nothing has since been seen or heard of him by the woman About a week arter hit, disappearance, becoming alarmed, Mrs Weeks No 2 put a personal in a Baltimore paper in ordc? to ascertain, If po.it)le, something of his whereabouts No response to the ad vertisement was ever received, and the Maryland wife concluded to let the matter drop In looking ocr an old copy of the Balti more paper tome time ago the Washington wife, No 1, happened to see the personal regarding the disappearance of Myron Weeks, and noticing that it wa his wife who sought information about him, be came alarmed and suspicious that he had deceived her She wrote to the Mrs. My ron Weeks in Maryland, and after a short correspond ence the two womeii came to the conclu sion that they had both been married to the same man Wife No 1 united wife Vo 2 to come to this city, and about 10 o'clock yesterday morning the latter ar rived here After talking the matter over, the Wash ington wife concluded that as hhe was Weeks' first and legal wire she would take the Initiative in the matter of proce cutlon. They will leave for Annapolis thib niorn-ms- Myron "Weeks is about firty-five years of age. His Mippo,ed that he is at present somewhere m the city, as bis first wife says that she saw him the other day on a street car.

COUNSEL TO BE EMPLOYED Erection ot it l'lnnt nt the Poot of South Capitol Street "Would Tiu pedo tho I'roirre-,-. of That Section of tin City Its l'luco Is Outside tli" City T.linlt!. If there is any way possible to avoid it the citizens of Southeast Washington do not intend that any more garbage shall be dumped at the south terminus of South Capitol street. ; The met ting of the South Washington Citi zens' Association, held last evening under theauspicesorthe"CommitteeorTen," was la i gel y attended and decisive action taken to oppose the re-establishment of a garbage plant at the place mentioned. The committee held a long session before the association met, the outcome of which was a tet of resolutions which will be sub-' milted to the District Commissioners this morning. The meeting was presided oer by Mr. Henry Storay, secretary of the committee of ten, who stated It-, object to be to deviM plans to prevent the Commissioners from re establishing a garbage plant at the loot of South Capitol street. The resolutions, which were unani mously adopted, are as follows VIGOKUOS PROTEST. Whereas, the accepted bidder for the contract for removing aud destroying the garbage of the city of Washington has proposed the ertction of a garbage crema tory at the foot of South Capitol street, and the iuatter i-s now under considera tion by the Honorable Commissioners of the District or Columbia Kesolvcd, That the erection of a garbage crematory or reduction plant at the foot of South Capitol street would be detri mental to our health and comfort and fatal to the value of our property and the prosperity of our section; Iteoletl, That a crematory at the foot of South Capitol street la not demanded by public necessity and would be epe ciallj uiiwIm; in view of the probability of the early erection of a bridge at the Toot of South Capitol street, and that street becoming an important thorough fare, Congress already having made ap propnation for a surey and the engineers being now at work Resolved, That the approval by the Com missioners of the foot of South Capitol street as a site for a garb-ige plant would be an unwarranted imposition upon the people of South Washington. Resolved, That forcing the Smith sjstem upon an unwilling contractor tends to re lieve him of responsibility for unsatis factory results, and inditferent service is therefore to be expected. Resolved, That the true solution of the garbage question is in the establishment of one or more plants outride of the city limits. READVERTISEMEXT FOR PIUS. Resolved, That the Commissioners of the District of Columbia arc urged to take sucu final action as will make permanent pro vision for the disposition of the garbage outside of the city limits and avoid the agitation and opposition which Avould in evitably follow the approval of sites within the city. a Resorted, That inasmuch as bias much lower than the accepted bid were tiled, and as the Commissioners have made an inves tigation of the various systems of garbage reduction and destruction and more fully considered the whole subject, public inter ests and economy require that they reader tise for proposals, designating whatsj'-teni or systems may be used and .stipulating that the plant or plants be used outside of the city limits. Resolved, That a committee of ten is directed to wait upon the Commissioners and voice our protest against the erection of a garbage crematory or reduction plant in our midst and present a copy of our petition for the removal of the former re duction plant. Resolved, That the committee of ten is authorized to take any further netc.sary and proper steps to prevent the establish ment of a garbage plant at the foot of South Capitol street. If the committee can get a hearing the resolutions will be presented to the Cora nnsfioners this morning. Dr. E. C. C. Winter, president of the association, will accompany the committee and present Urn resolutions. Mr. W. A. PJchards, chairman of the committee of ten, taid that as this matter could not be carried on successfully with out legal advice, it was best to make some provision to secure able counsel. Mr. M. J. Brown suggested that those present start the subscription, he going down for $3. This was increased by Mr. Thomas Martin $20; John Quinn, $20, and the Banner. Steam Laundry, $20, with the remark that this amount w ould be doubled if nec essary. On motion of Mr. E G. Gntchell, the chairman of the committee was empowered to employ counsel to look after the case. The meeting adjourned subject to the call of the committee of ten. Hnslnmd nnd TTlfo Killed.
