AGKING UPTHE NEWSBOYS Citizens Uiscoss. the Commis sioners' Sunday Edict. SUNDAY MERCHANTS SPEAK M'illurd Hall Packed to Hear the AddreisKCi Hon. Simon Wolf Pre sided Co in in it tee Appointed to AVait on the Co mmiiiouerH Sev eral Prominent Ladie&Inteiested. The iicwsIkijs were a very large, e.i thusiastic part or the mass meeting which -was held m their niteiest last night at "Willard Hail. They have -voices culti vated for a special busittivss, which Were 1 used last night with great effect in ni plaudmg the good and kind things that -were said abtut them and by them at this gathering. The newsboys occupied almost t tic whole or the gallery, but were scattered here and there among the audience on the floor. The action of the Commissioners stirred public opinion to such a degree that the hull tvas packed. In the assemblage were many ladies, who, as the hour of meeting -was early, brought with them children, who joined sympjtbetically m the applause for any sti iking argument in r.ivor of the boys. The meeting might be dctorlbed literally as a pioK-tst m black and whit. It was fotteu up by Mrs- Clara Bell Brown Mr. "William Allen, manager of the hall, gave it Tree of charge. On the ,tngr were Hon Simon Wolf, Mrs Olive Logan, Mrs M U. Lincoln, .Mrs M S Lokwood, Mrs. K. S Leonard, Mr?. Clara Bell Btown, Mr. L M. Saunders and Miss S iisan Bri.-gs. Mr Wolf was called to the chair and made jiennaiient chairman He was not there, he said, to antagonize anybody or anything, but simply to appear In protest against tlus act which cuts olf a part of the means of livelihood for a latge number of the joutlis of the aty He believed in the celling or paperb on Sunday, but would not countenance their annoying places of -vorhm, although there were i"good many people who tolerated the noise of the churchei. Mr Wolf pledged himself to aid in tiie revocation of the edict. Defended by "Women. Mrs. Logan thought Uiat woman p.ir ticu'aily should be an advocate of the newspaper, as it had opened up a new field foi her m the struggle ftr a liing Twenty thousand of tlicm were now t-n-gaged in the business. She was in favor of the protection or the uewbboysin their calling. Mrs. Lincoln felt sure that the newsboy couldn't be suppressed, the present gather ing being evidence of that fact. She spoke of the gi eat tx'ii"fit to society of the news boy guild and didn't think the world could get along without theiu nor did she bee how people who could tolerate church bells from G a. m to 10 a in., could pro test against the cries of the newbboys. Their music wasn't half as bad as that of the coal man. Mrs. Loekwood expressed her admiration for the newbbojs. Would alwajb be glad to hear their cues. These were not as annoying as the noise of a church to her and her neighbois, of which complaint has been made, but to no purpose. Mrs. Clara Belle Brown read an original appropriate poem, and made a bhort speech oT encouragement to the boys by telling them or instances in which their fellows, had risen in the world. Dr. Alexander Kent was greeted -with much applause when he was called on He was torry that he alone among the ministers was at this meeting. He dif fered f i om the minister;: on a grdtt many questions, they inuug usually on the wrong side, lie said. In this ca'e he believed they were sin cere, but he could not see that the news- los were as noisy as the rumbling street cars. Miss Biiggs made a short addrSb which pleased the boys. Will Sabbs, a newsboy, was applaud"d "when he got up to be heard for bib cause. He advised the boj s to help out the moe mentb nota imoingtlHi hutches and v. cut on to dii-cuss the business from a busi ness standpoint, and especially th.it feature of the injunction whuh would cut orr the Sunday profits, which were larger than those of beeral d.ijb of the iseek. Newsboy Appeal. "William Washington, another newsboy, also spoke He had ttie local p.ipers sticking out of his pocket He said tn.it the newsboy was a working hoy, aud "you can't keep him down " (Great ap plause All the education lie has was ob tained from the newspapers. SI ort and pointed speeches were made toward the close of the meeting by Mr L M Saunders, Dr Webster Grow and Dr. C B. 1'urvis the latter or whom character ized the prohibition as an act of Caetarism. The following resolutions were pieseuted to the meeting by the chairman and unani mously passed .Resolved, That it is detrimental to the bej,t interests of the community to prevent the newsboys from crying the sale of newspapers on Sunday, and we, as citizens of tlieNation's Capital, lespectfully protesr against the enforcing or the rule. "Resolved, That a committee or seven be appointed to wait upon the Commis sioner to the effect or having the rule lCscindcd." In accordance with the latter resolution the following were appointed on the com mittee Rev. Dr. Kent, L. M. Saunders, Dr. C B Bui vis. Mrs. Clara Belle Brown, Mrs. Oiu'c Logan, Mrt AT. D. Lincoln and Mr. Simon Wolf. Newsboy SpenliR. The following original argument of one of the newsboys cries for itself; Editor Times: In Defence of the News boy A little boy, say, who lias no support except in the way of selling News Papers, I think, should not be deprived of to doing, especially on Sunday A morning paper is published very early in the morning and a boy who makes a Business of selling papers has to arise -verv early, all kinds of weather, -which is not very pleasant to do. Now after a boy has arisen and gotten his papers the next thing to do is to sell them, which cannot be done very well unless by making known his presence; making known Juis presence by the uteof his tongue is a very great help In the way of belling papers, and if a boy be deprived of this privilege, even though he be deprived of It only on Sunday, he could not do very well, because there ia three times as much money in Sunday papers as there is in weekly ones. I cannot bee -why they should be pro hibited of giving news to those that desire it, because of the few that are disturbed only for a short time by their .presence. "We may have a few that may have plenty of money and time to read, while the newsboy is working to gain a few pennies for the support of, perhaps, a widowed mother and himseir. All our great men .are either from a newsboy or something ot the sort, and I hope thatthe newtboy -will not be downed, and I albo think that every one should be grateful to the -energy of -a, newsboy.

T"he biuile with which she listened to the Joyful words remained in death, which was due to heart disease.

CLEARANCE PAPERS ASKED Although in Custody the Dauntless Wanted to Sail Again. Naturalized American Citizen to Be Tried by a Civil Court at Havana. Jackionvillc, Fla., Jan. 7. Although tl e steam tug Dauntless is in curtody or an officer or the revenue cutter Bout well as a result of her lubt trip, fiom which she returned Monday night, her owner, W. A"? Bisbee, this morning applied for clearance papers for the steamer to go to Nuevitas, Cuba, with a carj o or arms and ammuni t'on. W. A. Bisbee, George R. roster, and Capt. W. Myers called at the costom-house and made a formal application for the clearance of the vessel Deputy Collector O. nopkins, who is In charge of the office during the absence or Collector Bisbee, refused to grant the cleaiauee until au thorised to do so by the Secretary of the Treasury. Atthe requestor the owner he telegraphed the Secretary for permission to ileal the vessel. Secretary Carhnle replied ordei ing the collector to refube clearance until further orders. Tne officers or the Dauntless stjn ,ieny th.it they have been to Cuba. All tint can be gotten from them is that they trans ferred the men and cargo taken from No Name Key to another vessel, presumably the Bermuda. Nothing has yet been done toward libel ing the Dauntless Tor violating the naviga tion lawb by going into foreign waters without clearing, or violating the neutrality laws. It is probable that a libel of in formation -will be tiled in a day or two. Havana, Jan. 7. Dr. Betancourt, a dentist of this city and a naturalized American citizen, who was arrested here las.tuio!ith as a political biispect, will be tried by a civil court. The charges which he will have to answer are that he was connected with conspirators who formed groups In the Central Park Tor the spread of the rebel propaganda, and received aud distributed rebel letters. The Spanish resldcnlsarGtutnabacoa held a torchlight procession latt,.night in honor ofCoI Fonrdeviela, the military commander at that place. A banquet was given later at which com plimentary and patriotic speeches were made and toastb given. The proceedings ended with a ball in the Spanish casino. Gen Inclan, while reconnoitering in the Leehugaga Hills, dispersed a rebel party, killing rourteen of them, including the in surgent prefect. The troops destroyed 300 huts and pl-mtat ons Captain General Weyler has refused to allow a demonstration in his honor that his admirers had intended to make tonight. Madrid, Jan. 7 Senor Canovns Del Cas tillo, prime minister, personally denies that there is any foundation whatever for the reports of impending chnngeB in the Spanish ministry, which have been in circulation within the last few days. The Cortes will meet in April, when important measures will be submitted to Parliament by the government. Atlanta, Ga , Jan 7 The Constitution has a dispatch fiom Key "West which says that Gen Gomez has begun work of reprisal against Spanlaids In an attack uron the central trocha near Moron he cap tured the Spanish garriton of Iago Avile, 114 men. They were notified that, according to the precedent set by their own govern ment, they should prepare to meet their fate They were given an opportunity of writing messages to their friends in Spain and then, in gioups of twenty-five, they were shot to death. Weyler'b announcement or pacification or Finar del Rio does not stand. He left over 3,000 insurgents in the province. He took additional soldiers from the mili tary cordon to Havana, to demonstiate that there were no insurgents there, when, as soon as he removed them, Cuban Gens. Raoul Arango and Castillo marched into the province of 1'inar del Rio from navana with 3,000 more men to remrorce the 3,000 already there. This all goes to prove how much de pendence can be placed m the statements or Weyler as to the attitude of the Cubans. They arc not arraid of the Spanish and not one man has surrendered m the prov ince of Tinar del Rio. The Spanish have recently established a military zone around the city of Havana, inclosing a space of five miles on all sides for the purpose of cultivating for the sustenance of the people ot the city, which shows still further to what ends they are driven .and how little .sympathy and sup port they can depend upon from the sur rounding country; also that they are daily losmg ground and so hard pressed .arc they that that is all they- can call their own, and that has to be maintained by a military cordon from the attacks of the insurgents. Change ot Bill. A change of bill has been announced at the Columbia Theater. Tonight and to morrow night "The Queen's Proctor, or How to Train a "Wife," will be produced. It will be preceded 'by the one-act comedi etta, "Klttie Cllve, Actress." At Satur day's matinee "The Chili Widow" will be given. Banks Consolidated. Lynchburg, Ta., Jan. 7.

Tne other letter was addressed to a friend 1n New York, and it is said that the young man had made the tnp all the way to Washington for the express purpose of ending his life These letters', together with some unimportant papers among his effect", were the means of disclosing the real name oftlie rjlnn. His only baggage was u satchel that contained a small quantity of clothing, but there was noth ing about it or the person of Chipman to reveal his place of residence in New York or his occupation.

McDonald, business manager Tor the Chicago M unufacturmp Company, whose office is at 768 Eleventh street southeast, was arrested last night on a charge of forgery, preferred by Oliver Thomas, an employe of the firm. The charge against Mr. McDonald is an old one with a new name and has been preferred twice before. On each occasion he has been acquitted owing to lack of evidence, and he is confident of like result when the case comes up. McDonald obtained his release lastnight under real estate bond of $300. The name of the firm under which he operate.-, ac cording to hib bill head. Is the Chicago Mamiructuring Company, but is really an agency of Weaver Kengla, of this city, manufacturer of soap. McDonald seik packages of soap on very flattering terms, including the gift of a fine French China tea service. Thomas was employed to deliver the goods and make regular weekly collections from customers. He was required to de posit $14.50 with his employer as security, which was to be returned when his con nection with the firm terminated. Tilings went smoothly Tor some weeks until Thomas gave notice that he inteaded to quit. Be alleges that McDonald re fused to return the $14.30, claiming that a notice of seven days, required by the contract, had not been given. Thomas thereupon swore out a warrant for Ids arrcSt, charging him with petty larceny. The case was tried but as the letter of the contract had been violated it was dismissed, and Thomas tried again, and brought civil action for the recovery of his money. At the trial a few days ago McDonald was again acquitted after offering in evidence a receipt for the money signed by Thomas. Thomas, liowever, claims that the signa ture is a forgery, and states that he has not received the money, while McDonald is equally positive in his statement that the document is valid. The tangle will be unravelled at the police court thiB morning. A number ot -witnesses have been summoned, among thorn, Judge S- C. Mills and H. Queen man of Anacostia.
