A number of military events, Auch as rescue races, obstacle races, And sad dling contests, will be Included'ln the program. Corporal Soott has been presented with a currycomb attached to a broom ?.?' Th.,8,a for UB8 'n grooming .W'nnle. the moBt obstreperous mule the District cavulrymen have ever seen. The mule was christened Winnie In honor of Wlnfleld Scott, whom the aninlai ""K&ed all over Camp Wil son the day it was Issued to the troop. All of the troopers who have en deavored to curry the mule have been catapulted through the alt- as a result of kicks. Scott having 'led the animal from tho corral to the picket line has a permanent assignment to groom the animal. To prevent the necessity for taking up a collection for flowers for the dOUChtV htrtnrl nn.nnril tk. mu.I.u. men conceived the idea or Inventing tho long distance curry comb. Scott says tho mule Is as docile as a panther. He says the animal's "gears" are twisted. When he is ordered to take "Winnie" to the watering trough he starts pulling her In the opposite direction from the big tank. In less time than the mule could trot to the trough It backs up to It. "When you want that beast to go north, the quickest way to get It there is to start pulling It south, ana you will reach yojir destination In Jig time." sav Corporal Scott. The trooper have agreed to substitute n Dutch supper for the evening meal at least one night n week, or as long as the money holds out. The last supper consisted of sauerkraut, sausage, sev eral kinds of Imported cheese, pretxets, rye bread, and what usually accompa nies these articles of diet. Following the supper the cavalrymen enjoyed a musical. In which all of them partici pated, tho theme of their ballads being "Excelsior, Excelsior, all of our crowd la present." which Is Bostonese for "Hall, hall, the gang's all here." Private' Mark Incle, who Is employed In the Bureau of Chemistry, at the De partment of Agriculture, has been de tailed to assist Private Ernest M. John son as keeper of the canteen, and hnrs been the recipient of considerable Josh ing by the troopers. As an employe of the Bureau of Chemistry he has an alyzed many of the soft drinks and knlcknaoks sold In the canteen and openly expressed an adverse opinion concerning them. Now he Is selling soft drinks, candles, and cakes to his fellow soldiers. When a trooper asks for Ice cream Inglo does not Inquire whether they want chocolato or straw- oerry, dui merely says "FlnK or brownT" As the troopers approach the canteen ne inquires, well, what'U you have, liquid or solid poison?" Johnson has threatened to fire him for "knock. ing the business." Notwithstanding ingle unparannif remarics, tno can teen' Is doing a 1100 a day business. L BALL IS LIKELY 10 BE HELD Wilson Is Thought to Have Changed Views, and Hughes Favors Big Event. f Will the people of Washington dance In honor of the new President on the evening of March S next? This Is the question that Is excltln qulte a number of Washlngtonlans who find It to their Interest otherwise to maintain strict political neutrality, Thero la nothing about danclng-that vio lates this neutrality and they all seem anxious to know whether or not thero will be an Inaugural ball. Tho question of the. Inaugural ball Is likely to be tho big local issue or tho election. When President Wilson was Inaugurated he would not sanction an inaugural ball and consequently none was held. It Is stated on the authority of Col, Robert N. Harper, one of the best known of the local Democrats and chairman of the finance committee at the last Inaugural committee, that President Wilson has undergone a chanjto of heart regarding- inaugural balls, however, and that if he is elect ed there will be a ball on the evening of Marsh 8. If the election results In the choice of Judge Hughes for President, It Is stated to be an absolute certainty thero will be an Inaugural ball. Therefore, Washlngtonlans who are nioro Interested In the social than tho political features of the election are given some assuranco whichever can didate Is chosen The question of the composition of the Inaugural committee, which would seem to be premature at this time. Is, nevertheless absorbing the atten tion of quite a number of Wniulnf tonlans. If President Wlljon is chosen to succeed hlmsolf It Is p-ob-able that William Coroiruu Eusls, chairman of the last Inaugural com mittee, will be asked to underfilled tne Job again. Col. Robert N. Harpur, who was an Important member of tho committee at the last Inauguration, Is also suggested as a candidate for the chairmanship. If (he Republican party U trium phant there are several candidates already proposed by thslr friends. William B. Illbbs Is onu of these. Barry Bulkley has also been sug gested. Neither of these candidates knew anything about their candidacy today and both are wljllng to wait until decisive returns from the elec tion put the matter rf a chairman ship for a Republican within the realm of possibilities.

Present Election Is Fourth Doubtful One History Shows That Jefferson and John Quincy Adams Were Elected By House of Repre- sentatives and Hay es by Commission. For the first time since 1876 thirty six hours passed after the polls were closed with the question of the elec tion of a President still In doubt. Many Washlngtonlans regard the famous Hayes-Tllden controversy as the only occasion when such a close situation prevailed. Historical reference develops the fact that thla la the fourth time since the beginning of the country that the election was in doubt. Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams, In 1J00 and in 1824, were each elected Tresldent by the House of Represen tatives and Rutherford B. Hayes was chosen by an electoral commis sion when both the House and the Senate declined to decide the contest. In the election of 1800 Thomas Jef ferson and Aaron Burr were the leading candidates. Both polled sev enty.-tnree votes. At that time tho Electoral College voted on individ uals for the Presidency only, tho man receiving the second highest number of votes being declared elected Vice President. The law provides that In case of a tie vote the House of Representatives shall elect, each State having one vote. A majority of tho States Is necessary to choice. Jn case the House of Representatives shall not bo able to muster a majority for any one candidate before March 4j the Vice President shall 'become Presi dent. It Is provided that the person having the greatest number of votes for Vice President shall be Vice President in case his number of votes constitutes a ma jority. If np person has a majority, however, the two highest numbers on tho list shall be voted on by the Senate In the same way the House elects a President, In 1S00, In the Jefferson case, Jeffer son was elected President with tlje votes of ten States. Burr, having re ceived the votes of four States, became Vice President. The constitutional elec tion provisions were changed after this election so that thereafter electors voted for both a President and a Vice Presi dent, Instead of just a President, as had been the case before. In 1S34 Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams were the candidates. According to record, Jackson received ninety-nine electoral votes and Adams eighty-four. Neither had a majority of the whole number of electors, there be ing two other candidates who polled seventy-eight votes between them. The. lection then went to the House of Rep resentatives, and Adams was elected. In 1S76 there were dlsnuted votes 'from Florida.

In Louisiana a Re publican board was accused of turning u Democratic Into a Republican major ity by rejecting the votes of precincts In which It declared fraud or Intimida tion to havo bee- used. In Florida the vote had been very close. In South Carolina Federal troops guarded the polls. In Oregon three Republican electors were chosen, but one was considered In eligible, and the governor of the State, a Democrat, appointed the next candi date oh the list, a Democrat. But one electoral vote was needed to give either nayes or niaen a majority. It was cal culated that Tllden hod a majority of the popular vote by 250.935. The control of the Government de volved tinoh Consxess. when lt met In joint session to count the votes. The House was Democratic and the Senate Republican. They could not agree, there fore, and after discussion an electoral commission was appointed. This con sisted of three Democrats and two Re fiubllcana from the House, threo Rcpub leans and two Democrat from the Senate, two Democrats and two Repub licans from the Supremo Court of the United States, and one other Justice of the Supreme Court chosen by the four justices already selected. The result of the commission's deliberations was the selection of Hayes as President.

Twety-flve pounds of vulcanite rubtfer were bought In Baltimore yesterday to be shipped to Germany for dental purposes. The purchaser, a German, stated that "vulcanite rubber was as scarce In Ger many as dyes are In Baltimore." He made his purchases In two places, paying 14 a pound for thirteen pounds In one and 17 a pound for twelve pounds In tho other. Before tho war vulcanite rubber was plentiful here and elsewhere at from 11.50 to J1.C0 a pound. It Is used In making plates for artificial teeth. When he walked Into the first store the purchnser said he wanted all he could get, but later was satisfied with twenty-five pounds, consjdered a good sired order. A dealer related an Instance In which the rubber was recently bought In small er quantities and sent through the malls With the Senate Democratic, as stated In The Times yesterday, the House Is stilt close and doubtful. Both Republicans and Democrats are claiming they will ,be in the majority In the House. , It will take returns from practically every district to settlo the question,, of House control. The Democrats on the basis of reports thus far retain a slight lend. Republicans have 201 seats assured thus far and tho Democrats 206. Twenty-five districts are yet to be heard from. Two Progressives, one Independ ent, and one Socialist have been elected. The Republican Congressional cam paign committee still hoped today to make enough more gains to swing the control to tho Republican side. A gain of three more seals for the Republicans would do It. It looks now, however, as If the House would be so close neither side would have a aomfortable working ma jority. Even If the Democrats retain control by a few members they will be In a troublesome situation, since at any time slight Insurgency in their ranks would block party measures.
