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
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
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
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.
"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

ized the prohibition as an act of Caetarism.
The following resolutions were pieseuted
to the meeting by the chairman and unani
.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

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.
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
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.

dentist of this city and a naturalized
American citizen, who was arrested here

Weyler'b announcement or pacification
or Finar del Rio does not stand. He left

He took additional soldiers from the mili

Raoul Arango and Castillo marched into
the province of 1'inar del Rio from navana

Inquest Begun in the Fatal Shoot
ing nt Otranto, S. C.
Charleston, S. C, Jan 7. The story of
the fatal shooting at Otranto, fifteen miles
from here, jesterday, does not greatly
lesson its horrors. The Inquest began to
day showed that L. F Brown and Stephen
Mazyck were shot in an open boat by John
The two men killed had been on Fop
penhelm's land against his order. Some
words were pabsed and two colored wit
nesses said that Brown raised up m the
boat with his gun as if to shoot. Pop
penheim shot him.
The witness said that as Brown fell
into the river Mazyck moved as if to get
up and reach his gun, and received the
contents of Poppenheim's 6ccond barrel
in his forehead.
The incpiest was adjourned in order to
secure more witnesses. Poppenheim is

ARRESTED ON OLD CHARGE.
Business Mannuer McDonald Again
in the Toils.
"SV. F. 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.
