It Bangs Over the National Hotel Entrance, and He Says It Hurts His Busiuess. A curtain of rich damask design, tliat sas flaunted in the draught on the west lidc ol the National Hotel entrance since November 10 last, is the cause of an in junction suit that "was begun yesterday irternoou against Mr. On en G. Staples, proprietor of the hotel. Behind the handsome hit of "woven .stuff " a glass door, on which the name of Jacob Spliedt is painted. There is a small room behind this door, and here Mr. Spliedt conducts a ticket biokerago business. Ile hab been there since .Virll 1.1692. Mr. Spliedt rented his room of Charles Ualvcrt, proprietor of the building. About the time Mr. Staples took charge of the aotel he rented an office on the east side af the corridor to another broker, ly the Dame of Mnrmaduke- At the same time he ocked Splicdt's door, and hung the orna mental curtain before it The tide or business naturally turned to the otlier jidc or the corridor, Mr. Spliedt says, When he asked the hotel proprietor to ;ako down the curtain he refused. The request "was repeated Wednesday, Mr. Staples again refused. The ticket broker consulted his lawyers, A. A. Birney and Arthur Peter, and was advised by them that the curtain has no right to be there. He also understands that Mr. Staples is going to fill up the door with boards and masonry and stone. This is to embarrass and punish him for asking that the curtain be removed, he says. If he takes the curtain down him self, says Mr. Spliedt, it will probably result n a breach of the peace. He therefoie asks the court to enjoin Mr. Staples from maintaining the curtain or filling up the door. HEV. Dll. KOGEHS' RESIGNATION. He Has Accepted a Call to a Church in Reading. Itev. A. G. Rogers, pastor of the Uni versnlist Church of Our Father, on Thir teenth and L streets, has notified his con gregation that he lias accepted a call to the Church of Our Father, at Heading, Pa., and Unit his resignation of his present charge will take effect on April 30. Dr. Eogers is very popular with his congrega tion, every member of which is his warm admirer and friend. When he assumed his charge, about five years ago, he put all his gifts of faith, elo quence and perseverance to his work, and so richly have his efforts been rewarded that ho willleav- to Ids successor a large congregation, and a church in thorough repair, and in a flourishing financial con dition. Next week Dr. Rogers will begin a course of three lectures on "How Wc Got Our BiWe," which will be illustrated with 150 Imported views. On Easter Sunday lie will preach his List sermon as pastor of his present church, but before then, it is understood, his congregation will take some concerted way of showing their apprecia tion of his services and regret that their present relations should cease. K12ADY FOR TRIAL TRIPS. Gunhcuts "Wilmington sind ITclenn. Waiting to Ue Accepted. Thenew gunboats Wilmington andllclenn, built Jfi Newport News, have been reported to the Navy Department as lcndy for official acceptance tiials, and the foimer will be speeded over the measured course in Long Ifeland Sound on the 1st instant, the latter following two days later. They must run at the minimum rate of thirteen knots per hour, maintained for four consecutive hours. Confidence is ex pressed that they will exceed this with Miss Annie Pecls's Lecture. The lecture before the National Geo graphic Society this evening, at the church corner of Tenth and G streets, will be on "Mountaineering in the Tyrol and Switzerland," including an ascent of the Matterhorn, by Miss Annie S. reck, A. M., of Providence, R. I. Miss reck is one of the few ladies who have made the perilous and difficult ascent of this world-renowned peak, and she has a remarkably fine collection of lantern-slide views of Swiss scenery. The lecture includes not only a description of the ascent of the Matterhorn and of the glorious scenery around Zermatt, but takes the audience through the Tyrol also, whose picturesque regions charm the traveler perhaps more than the grander peaks of Switzerland. West Point Cadets. Ralph J. Spracue, or the Eighth New fork district: William E. Mould, Tenth Michigan district: Edward Willoughby, Tenth Michigan district: Raymond A.

VISITORS WERE CONGRESSMEN Senator Penrose Makes His Debut at the "White House Ex-Sec'retury of State Foster Says n Feu- "Words About Hawaii Phil Sheridan's Widow Has u Brief Audience. When President McKinley w'eut upstairs yesterday morning, after a hearty break fast, lie was pleased with the surroundings. ' lie saw the spacious halls empty. He walked through them and over to the rooms of the clerks a part of the house seldom invaded by the President. There was a relief from the smirk and smile of the officeseek-.T. It was almost 9:30 o'clock and not a place hunter in sight. In truth, it was not the place-hunter's inning. The new rules which stipulated certain hour when the I'resident could bo been wereinstrumental in giving the I'resi dent a inuch-neededTest. While the office seekers were, not present in person, they were there by proxy, as i t were, in the shaiw of their Senator and Representatives m Congress. The time for the payment of political debts has arrived, and none are more willing to have these obligations dis charged than are the Senators and Repre sentatives. The assemblage of the plain people was small. They did not number more than 100. Of that number there were uoc twenty who could be truthfully classed among the orficeseekers. Senator Pea rose, the new man from Pennsylvania, who won fame in his own State lor having defeated the merchant prince and his money, Mr. John Wanamaker, for the SciiulorshIp, was early at the bat. lie squarell himself Tor a home run in huvnig appointed two political friends to good liositions, thus paying off party debts in the State to those who had helped elevate him. from obscurity to the Senatorship Senator Penrose spoke for his great and good friend, ilaminund, of the classic little city of Altootia, who aspires to be one of the Assistant Secretaries ot the in terior. He also presented the long and almost unpronounceable name of Weider shcim, of Philadelphia, for Commissioner of Patents. Senator Penrose talked quick and to tlie point, as thougu lie expected the President to make the appointments there and then. Senator "Billy" Mason, another of the boy wondeis fiom Illinois, sent three balls through the hoop at one time. Each or them weie labeled. Huntington Wilson , of Chicago, a man who, like JligKincoitiam, once wore a diets suit at bieakfast, wants to be made secietniy of legation at Paris. Judge Elliott, an assistant attorney gen eral, and the famous Tom Needles, of the Cairo Swamps, to lie given charge of the poor Indians, in the shape uf commissioner. Senator Mason was given the glad hand by the President, who bmiled as if to tny, "Just tell the applicants you saw me." Following came Senator Frye and ex Secretary of Stale John W. Foster, who sought to enlighten the PieMdent upon the subject of Hawaii. There was litUe said, as the Piesident indicated he was not ready to take up thai question at this time. Senator Hale, who is commonly leferred to as the Senator from Spam, dressed in his usuar faultless style, had an audience of unusual duration. The widow of the dashing soldier who made Winchester famed in song, Mrs. Phil. H. Sheridan, was admitted through the private doors, and she, with other ladies, saw the President for some fifteen min utes or more. Senator Spotuer, who might be mis taken Tor a boy orator of the mighty West, accompanied by his once, fatherly eolleague,-"Uncle" Philetus Sawyer, came witn a sturdy tread. Following behind was Richard Guenther, who fled from Germany to escape political tyranny and who afterward came to Congress from Wisconsin. Mr. Gueaihcr was appointed consul general to Mexico by Mr. Harri son, and he would like the place under Mc Kinley. The chances are that he will get it, as he and the President were great friends when they served in Con gress together. Tlie dullness ot the day was greatly re lieved when, in company with National Committeeman W. T. Durbin, of Indiana, the illustrious "Oom Jack" Gowdy, the man "who held the party in Indiana up by the tail during the late campaign, made his appearance. This was "Oom Jack's" first visit to the White House since he arrived in the city the day before the in auguration. "Oom Jack" is now booked for the general consulship at I'aris, though he does not look the part. The great In dianian wore a broad smile, Tom Carter whiskeis, rawhide boots. Prince Albert coat of many seasons ago. He did have on a collar, and no mistake, which was out of the usual, and goes to show that the great and only "Oom Jack" has pro gressed even in the few days he has been in Washington. No door custodian could stop "Oom Jack." He walked in at the private secretary's door with all the grandeur of a Parisian prince. He bowed to an acquaintance in pure Parisian 'fash ion, which sent dismay to the hearts of the colored messengers, who pride them selves on politeness, but none could touch that of "Oom Jack," soon to start for his post at the great French capital. Tennessee flashed up a candidate for Register of the Treasury, in the person of J. C. Napier, of Nashville, a colored ap plicant, who was piloted to the seat of power by Hon. John M. Langston, who is himself an applicant for District Com missioner. The present Register of the Treasury halls from -Tennessee, and that seems to encourage Prof. Napier that the State can not do without it. A committee from the District cam e to say to the President thatthey wanted him to be governed by the home rule idea when he came to making appointments, which he said he would consider well. A delegation of colored citizens, who had an appointment with the President which had been made the day before, saw the Executive to ask the appointment ot Mr. L. M. Saunders as a District Commis sioner. There were some fifteen or twenty men in the delegation. Among them were Rev. P. J.McEntosh, Rev. George W.Lee,D.D., Rev. J. H. McMullin, Rev. W. J.Howard, Rev. Wiseman, Dr. Charles Marshall, Dr. John H. Lewis, Lawyer E. V. Davis, and Mr. George C. Mason and Mr. Clayton, president and secretary, respectively, ot the Cullbm Association. Mr. W. C. Payne, the defeated McKinley .alternate of this city, headed the delegation. The name of John C. Dancy, colored, of North Car olina, was presented as an applicant for recorder of deeds. Jay H. Neff, of Kansas City, was the only man or his kind who called yes terday with the exception of Dj Talmage. Mr. .Neff called one of the reporters aside to say he didn't want an office. It is not known yet what position Mr Neff as pires to. Dr. Talmage said he was not an officeseeker, and every one believed him when he said Tfc.

ESr-CONSULTATlON FREE.- be made an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury,, was inclined to foice the season yesterday, when he appeared in a high stovepipe hat which bore the appearance or having been first placed in commission when Horace Greeley was a candidate ror the Presidency. Ex-Senator Brice, of Ohio and New York, was a caller. He was in a hurry to catch a train Tor New York. He merely said, "Howdy," paid his respects, all in less than two minutes. Ex-Mayor William Rodedow Grace.of New York, like Mr. Brice. "paid his respects.' John F. M midland, the real sirnon pure-blown-In-the-bottle original McKinley man in New York, who helped to strangle the Morton boom, came with a swift rush as though he would push the partition down in his haste to get to the inner circle. He collided with the guard -at the door, and was asked to write his name on a card. When this was done, he, like some others, waited In the hall before he was bidden to enter. He did not have to wait long. His name was like magic on ttie inside, for the name of Mllhollaiid was worth much to Mark Hannaandotheis in tlie early days or last spring preceding the St. Louis convention. Hairy H. Crowley, tlie "soldier poet," as printed on his card, came from' the Soldiers' Home, aU Hampton, Va. Mr. Crowley wore long hair, which Ml down below his collar, which indicated that barbers were cither scarce or arbitrary in his section or tlie country. lie had written a poem dedicated to the President's house hold, and in consideration or this he wanted a position on the staff or the Executive at the White House. If lie were to cut his hair he might htund a better chance of reaching the goal of his modest ambition. DECLINES AN APPOINTMENT. Will Cimilmck Does Not Want to Ho nn Arbitrator. Hon. Will Cumback or Indiana, who en tcred Congress at the same time that Sec retary Sherman did, being the youngest member or that body, has declined an ap pointment tendered him by Secretary Sher man and I'resident McKinley. It was that of representative of the President in the matter of the arbitration ot the claim or Sig. E. Cerruti, an Italian, against the government or Colombia, based upon alleged infringement; of the rights of Cerruti, under the terms of a conces sion for a railroad in Colombia. The treaty submitting the claim to the arbi tration or the I'resident or tlie United States was negotiated in Rome in 1895, and the agreement or the President to act, through Secretary Gresham, was trans mitted March 1, 1895. Whoever accepts the appointment as representative or the I'resident in the mat ter, will be required to visit Colombia .Ind investigate the circumstances or the case. Upon his report the President will base his award. COLLIDED WITH A CARRIAGE. Miss Annn F. McCtihc Meets With n Painful Accident. Miss Anna F. McCahc, a young lady re siding at No. -137 New Jersey avenue, met with a painful accident about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, at the cor ner of Fifteenth and I streets northwest. The young lady was out bicycle riding with Mr. C. S. Wilson and his wife, or No. 1830 G street northwest, when she collided with a carriage belonging to Liveryman McCauley, and driven by Will iam Thomas, colored. Two carriages were passing at the time and Miss McCabe, in attempting to avoid one, fan into the other and was thrown from her wheel and was badly bruised about the face and body. Her wheel was run over and demolished. Miss McCabe's injuries are not con sidered serious. BOUND A HY TREATY. All Advices From Venezuela Fore shadow Its Adoption. The Venezuelan boundary treaty will be laid by President Crespo before the Vene zuelan Senate on Monday next. Under the xules of the Venezuelan Congress it will reach a vote on Saturday, the 20th instant. All the advices from Caracas indicate its approval by the Senate by a practically unanimous vote. This result is foreshad owed by thepressof thecountryand by the utterances ipf jiublic men. After the treaty has had a similar ap proval from the British Parliament, rati fications will be exchanged in Washington between Sir Julian Fauncefote and Scaor Andrade. MRS. CARTER RECOVERED. She Appeared Lust Night After Two Days' Absence. A reception that well-nigh amounted to an ovation was accorded Mrs. Leslie Car ter lart night when she reappeared as David Belafco's lovable heroine in "Tlie Heart of Maryland." Mrs. Carter lias been ill for several days, suffering f mm acute laryngitis, but there was no trace of it in her work or her voice last night. Dr. Gardner, Mrs. Carter's physician, is confident that she will be able to ap pear at every performance during the re mainder ot this week. Reception to Rev. Dr. Stridden. A public reception will be tendered the Rev. Dr. Stricklen, pastor of Hamlinc M. E. Church, Ninth and P streets north west, this evening, at 8 o'clock. Dr. Stricklen's pastorate of this church for the past year was a marked success. Complying with the unanimous request of the quarterly conference, he has been re turned to this charge. The Thieves Are Far Away. There were no developments yesterday in the F-streefc diamond robbery, Inspector Hollinlierger stated late this afternoon. The thieves are believed to be in Balti more, Philadelphia, or New York. D5: WALKER, The World of Business The Wall street story for yesterday is a Tcpetitlon ot that! for. Wednesday and of many olherr days recently. Specula tion was extremclj'l'dull at the stock ex change and the fluctuations were confined in a majority. of instances within narrow limits. It is to be recorded, however, that almost without exception the changes were in the direction ot higher prices. The total transactions for the day were only 102,3oi shurcs, which tells the tale ot dulness conclusively. There is still no commission buying In the market, the room traders doing almost all the busi ness. This is discouraging "to boomers. Manhattan was the feature of the market yesterday. It had a fine rise in the morning, the largest move of the day, going up 2 l-8; The reason for the ad vance was large purchasing to cover short contracts. There have been a great many bears on Manhattan recently. It has been unpopular. Hardly anyone could be found to say anything good of the company or tlie stock. Rut the price or the stock would not drop on the dividend ieductlou, and sentiment seems to be chaiii'ing some what, temporarily, among'trnders. The demand from this source was good for some time, but finally abated, and Manhattan lost part of its advance closing up. How ever, Manhattan sales amounted to 13.000 shares yesterday , the largest amount In any one stock during the day. Sugar was up slightly at the close from the closing figures of Wednesday. A further advance in prices or refined sugars by the trust was recorded. Advices yes terday were to the effect that Sugar over 10 Dutch standard will receive a differ ential of 1-8 or a cent per pound under the new tariff law. Tobacco was almost the only exception to the fractional advances all over the board yesterday. The loss for the day was only 1-4. Tobacco is one of the stocks subject to much manipulation, and no one knows whether it will stay at its present comparatively high figure, or even go higher, or whether It may not be lcady for a drop in the near future. There is a good deal of talk to the effect thatccr tain strong interests are to join In a move ment to push up the price further. Geueral Attorney Fearson, ot the West ern Union, Is credited with the statement that the intention of the Union Pacific telegraph decision is to compel the Union Pacirie to observe that part of its fran chise which provides for its operating a telegraph line. There is no intention of discriminating for or against any tele graith corporation. Exactly what will be done depends upon the wording or the order or the court. It is t-caiccly probable that, the court will compel the Union Pacific to build an entirely independent 8 stem. It is more-likely that an arrange ment will lie1 made by which the Union Pacific will 'operate the Hues, but will handle such mosMages as may be de livered to it by individuals or by other telegraph companies. The St. Paul directors have declared the regular 3 1-2 per cent on the pre ferred stock, and 2 per cent on the com mon, both payable' April 19. St. Paul came in for 10,000 shares of the day's business yesterday, and it scored an ad vance in price. St. I'aul is considered to be in a very satisfactory condition by astute traders. There is considerable buy ing going on around present prices. Notice that Uurlington is also strong recently. The people who like St. Paul are usually bulls in Burlington for much the same reasons. The Omaha annual repoit is issued. The surplus, after 2 per cent on common stock, was as heretofore reported, $340,909, making the earnings on common for the year within 530,000 of 4 per cent. There was no change during the year in the cap ital stock or funded debt. The passenger traffic fell ofr a little, while the freight traffic increased 11.75 per cent- Rates per mile fell off 9.38 perceut- The physical condition ot the property has been fully maintained. Advance knowledge of this satisfactory condition of things is sup posed to have been the cause or the recent rood advances in the stock, both common and preferred. Omaha led the rise ia prices yesterday, closing 1 1-4 up. True to precedent, wheat broke in price yesterday on the Chicago market follow ing the issuance of the government re port. The report was in itself a bullish argument, estimating as it did the farm rp-crve at 88,000.000 .bushels, but tlie quantity of "long' wheat which pressed on the "market was overpowering in its force and the consequence was seen in a net loss of almost 2 cents per bushel. The news concerning the European po litical situation was again pacific and Liverpool ignored the figures on the Amer ican farm stocks by remaining stationary in price. Up until noon the action of the market was hesitating, but after tliathour there was only one course and that was downward. New York Stock Mnrket. Corrected dally by W. B.
