I u LHAMLIt J! 1 IS CALLED By DEATH Veteran Superintendent of the House Press Gallery Dies in Providence Hospital. Charles H. Mann, for thirty years the superintendent of the House Press Gal lery, died at Providence Hospital this morning at 7:25. He. had been in fall ins health for three months, but man aped to devote a part of the time to hi duties during the closing days of the past Congress. Mr. Mann was seventy-four years of age and had been a familiar figure about the Capitol and national con ventions tor nearly a third of a cen tury. He was personally known to scores of public men and to every wasningxon correspondent who has "covered" the National Capital during the past thirty years. The older corre- sponaents passed ana their places were filled with "youngsters," but "Charlie" Mann held on year after year until a complication of diseases made It Im possible for him to crawl to the press gallery. Native Of Pennsylvania. 'He was a native of Pennsylvania, and a, close personal friend of Congressman Fred C. Talbott of Maryland, who was instrumental In obtaining the position which Mr. Mann -held so long. Mr. Mann was near death In Decem ber, but an operation prolonged his life. About two weeks ago he realized that he was near the end, and sent a mes sace ta the nress callerv "bunch" sav ins: that he would never appear again at ma old naunts. ior the oast live days he. bad been in a stupor, and tho end came peacefully today. Leaves Wife and Two Sons. Mr. -Mann leave a. wife and three .sons. The funeral arrangements have not been completed, but the press gal lery probably will appoint an honorary funeral escort. ""Charlie" Mann, as he was known to every Washington .correspondent from O. O. "Stealey down to the youngest member of the gallery, was born in Doylestojyn. Pa October 4, 1840. He re delved an education in private boarding schools. In 1858 he moved to Baltimore Jid for "a number of years was a Pull man conductor. About thirty years ago ha moved to Washington, and was ap pointed supeilntendent of the press gal lery. His Washington residence was CT A street .northeast. Miss Murray Stars in "Chimes of Normandy" With the leading part sung by Miss Estelle Murray, sixteen years old, "The Chimes of Normandy," which was pre sented by the Society of St. 'Vincent de Paul, of St. Aloysius' church, last nleht. was most enthusiastically received. Miss Murray, as Serpolette. was unusually capable, and was applauded heartily. .William Paynter, who sang the part of Gospard, the miser, was also es pecially clever. Little Sadie Llpp, twelve years old. danced attractively. An orchestra composed of students from the Notre Dame School furnished music. LYNCH'S FOES PLAN TO FIGHT SELECTION Consider Sending of Protesting Committee to Oppose Him for Public Printer. Retail Liquor Dealers Elect Riordan President The Retail Liquor Dealers' Assosia- tlon of Washington elected Emmet Riordan president at a meeting of the association yesterday. John V. Flynn, M. J. Collins, and F. O'Sulllvan were chosen vice presidents; James Richard son, treasurer; James Duffy, financial secretary; J. Charles McGulre. re cording secretary: M. Healy, sergeant- at-arms, and William Klausman, guard. waiter J. Costcllo, John Walsh. Jere miah O'Connor, Timothy O'Hanlon, John Trant, and William Collins were made members of the executive board. Opponents of President James M. Lynch, of the International Typograph ical Union, slated for the position of! Government Printer, are discussing to-i day the matter of sending a protesting delegation to President Wilson. Strenu ous opposition has developed over night, and both District Democrats and antl Lynch union printers are up in arms against the proposed appointment. Announcement of the fight over Lynch in The Times yesterday was one of the sensations In District circles today. Democrats, who did not know the Inside of the proposition, are in many cases lining up with the Insurgents. The American Federation of Labor, however. is prepared to put up Just as stiff a fight as the Democratic printers and anti-Liyncr. unionists. The District Democrats, opposed to Lynch, are not unfavorable to the pay ment of a political debt by President Wilson, nor opposed to the establish ment of a strong labor following by reason of a prlntery appointment, but they are making one of their strongest arguments against Lynch on the ground that for nearly twenty years he has been a professional lasor union man, and not a practical printer. Employes of the prlntery, except the Republicans in the Lynch element of the union, are saying that a practical man should have the berth. Judge Foil First Used Anthracite as Fuel The first man to use anthracite coal as a domestic fuel was Judge Jesse Foil, who was born in Buckingham, Pa-. J62 years ago today. Experiments with anthracite had been previously made by two Connecticut blacksmiths, namd. Fore, in 1768. but it was not until 1S09 that Judge Foil demonstrated the gre-it commercial possibilities of the coal, which Is, except the diamond, the pur est form of carbon known. In Judge Foil's day, anthracite w.is called "stone coal," and the early ex periments with it as domestic fuel are amusing in the light of the present. As anthracite kindles with difficulty, and requires special furnaces, gratc bars,.and other fixtures, it was consid ered absolutely worthless before the ex periments of Judge Foil and others proved Its great commercial possi bilities. The annual production Is In the neigh borhood of 90.000.000 tons, and the value of the mines about $175,000,000.
