The Criminals, "SYho Are Young Men, Confessed Their Guilt. Their Plan of Operation. Detectives II clan and Lacey, ot tho cen tral office, made an important capture last night ot three colored thieves who have been -wanted for some time past for housebreaking. The prisoners confessed their guilt, to a large extent, and gave their names as Charles Wormier, aged twenty-two years; Ambrose, alias "Boze," Turner, twenty -one, and James Cosey, eighteen. At intervals for several months past the merchants and storekeepers along Ninth street, between!) andH streets, have been missing goods in bmall quantities, as well as change which might have been left in the money drawers. Saloonkeeper Brclt barth, Confectioner Sharpless and Caterer Budd have been the principal losers. From the former place the thieves took a largo quantity of wines, liquors and clgarb, while five-pound boxes of candy were missed from Mr. Sharpless' establishment, and silverware, consisting ot knives, forks and spoons, as well as higli-priced cakes and confections, from Budd's store. The robberies were usually committed on Sunday nights after IU o'clock, and no trace of the thieves could be found. Soma ot the merchants suspected clerks and others in their employ, and kept a vigilant watch, but were unable to discover how the leakage occurred. Several days ago "Boze" Turner, one of the prisoners, whom Detective Lacey had in times past befriended, told the officer that he could put him onto a good case, and when closely questioned implicated the other boys in the crimes. The detec tives discovered yesterday, after following the boy's clew, that a part of the stolen goods had been bold to Mrs. Hcdgman, who keeps a small storo at the corner of Second and Half streets southwest, while others had been peddled out and otherwise disposed of by the thieves. Last niglit the oflicers located the three thieves and arrested them. They were taken to police hendqua rters and "sweated" and confessed to a large number of thefts. Wormley stated that ho had planned the robberies and had always been assisted by Turner and Cosey, the latter standing outsido the Mores and remaining on watch to give the alarm in case they should be detected. lie said that a colored man who had stolen from the stores before, but who was now In Philadelphia, had told him that the'places were easy marks, and could be robbed without difficulty or detection Entiancc was made to the buildings from an alley in the lear, and by scaling a high wall and raising win dows. The police believe that these thieves are responsible for a large number of housebreakings which have been reported recently. They already have evidence of three distinct cases against them, and it is believed that they were implicated in at least half a dozen more. Students to Receive Mr. Bryan. A mass meeting of the students of the law department of Columbian University was held last niglit to complete arrange ments for the reception of lion. "William J. Bryan on his visit to "Washington next month, whenhe will deliver a lecture before the students of the university- The meet ing was largely attended and was pre sided over by Mr. Frank "Wylie, of Arkan sas. Mr. Chailes Calvert, of Maryland, was chosen chairman of the committee on ar rangements ami Mr. W. M. Crook, of Texas, chairman of the reception committee.

"I will not undertake at this time to foreshadow the provisions of the bill which we shall present. Rest assurod that what ever shortcomings it may have will not be the result of a want of careful considera tion, but of tho inherent difficulties in framing a measure of such magnitude. The Republican members'of the "Ways and Means Committee who have framed this measure, believe, however, that barring the temporary interference arising from anticipating Importations for tho purpose of avoiding new duties an interference which will depend entirely upon the promptitude or the delay In its passage the proposed bill will secure the two ends so earnestly desired by the country, suf ficient revenue to run the Government, en couragement of American industries and the opening of abundant opportunities for labor. (Applause.) "The Congress whloh will meet in ex traordinary session on Monday will meet the expectations of our people without party distinctions, If It shall promptly put upon the statute books a tariff measure that will meet these two ends. Capital and labor unite in asking that there be no unnecessary delay. (Applause.) "Let me again Indulge the hope that the promptness and unanimity ot our preliminary action tonight may presage the same results in tho work of the ex traordinary session, which has been con vened by the Chief Majistrate who has Just been inaugurated amid the plaudits of the people." (Long continued applause.) Mr. "Walker, of Massachusetts, offered a resolution providing for a committee of seven members to revise the rules. Mr. W. A. .Stone, of Pennsylvania, made a motion to adjourn. This, amid some confusion, was voted do wn, and Mr. "Walker was permitted to proceed with his remarks. He criticised the rules and maintained that an impression existed that they did not permit that freedom of debate which the House desired. Mr. Mahany, of New York, followed in a few remarks, in which he asserted that the "gag law" which was so prominent in the Fifty-fourth Congress, did not die in that Congress, but had been re-enacted here. That it was tho usual trick of self-constituted leaders temporarily to move the adoption of the rules of the preceding Congress, but that It was easier to move "Mount Etna" than to secure their amendment after this was done. The Walker resolution was tabled. A resolution was adopted which lequires the chairman of the caucus to call a caucus when requested by twenty-five members in writing. All the present House officers were then re-elected. They are as follows Henry N. Couden, of Michigan, chaplain. Alexander McDowell; of Pennsylvania, clerk. Benjamin F. Rtissel, of Missouri, ser-geant-rtt-arms. "W. J. Glenn, of New York, doorkeeper. At 8:50 the caucus adjourned. During the day It was announced that the House officers who will bc re-elected on Monday desired State delegations to meet and determine on the appointive offi cers each desired Several delegations met yesterday and made a re-distribution of the patronage. As a result it is said that a large number ofthe appointive officers of the House will be changed. In the Michigan delegations Fied II. Britton, the present tally clerk, was defeated by a close vote by Fiank H. Wakefield, and Winthrop C. Jones, the present assistant sergcant-at-arms, was defeated by M. B. Hopkins. Other impor tant changes are reported as pending.. THE I'OPUJLTST CAUCUS. It Mas Been Postponed Until Mondny Mornlng. The Populist members of the House were to have caucused last evening, but owing to the absence of seven or eight members of Congress of that party, the caucus was postponed. The members of the third party will meet in the hall of the House at 10:30 Monday morning, and nominate can didates for House offices. It is expected thatnineteen members and two delegates will participate in the caucus. The nominee for Speaker will be John C. Bell, of Colorado, or Jerry Simp son, of Kansas. Bell was the candidate of the party in the Fifty-fourth Congress and Simpson in the Fifty-third Congress. It is said that Tom "Watson will be nom inated for Clerk. He was the Populist candidate for Speaker in 1891, and Cleric In 1895. "FIIPIIA H $2.47 810" g Seventh St. ! BLISS VACATES IIS ORDEB Continued from First Page. there is in your office what purports to be an opinion signed in the matter of the ap plication of JHafhlas Benner und Harvey M. Lafollettc to locate McKee scrip on what is known as tho I nice Trout of Chicago, III., and thntta copy of said paper has been de livered to one ot the parties to the contro versy before itfs rendition and promulga tion, in flagrant disregard of light and Justice, In violation of the express order of my predecessor and the usual and Just rules of procedure, now, therefore, in the exercise of the discretion and authority conferred upon me by law, I direct you to order a lehearing of such application at such time, aj you may designate, not later than thirty days from the date hereof, and toimmediately.notify all parties in interest of this order and of the time fixed for the hearing. , "All orders and acts of your department heretofore made.or done in the matter of fauch application are hereby rescinded, va cated and annulled to the end that said ap plication may be heard dc novo, aud true and equal Justice done between the par ties." "CORNELIUS N. BLISS, Secretary." The following statement was given out with the order. "The order was prompted by the facts therein referred to. On the U2d day or February Secretary Francis directed that Judgment in the case be sus pended until the further order of his de partment. This order has been published. The Secretary was thereafter informed that no decision had been rendered; none was-fouud in the proper of floe of the Land Department; noue appears in the letter press book, where all decisions are re quired to be cop,ed prior to promulgation. "In response to a telegram from the Assistant Attorney General asking Commis sioner Lamoreux if he had git en out a copy of his opluiou in the lake front case, if so. when and to whom, Mr. Lanioreux replied: " 'On the 20th I signed an opinion and had a number of copies made the same day to be given to the press on the 23d, which date I had announced that the decisioa would be promulgated. One of the copies on the 20th I gave to a party with permis sion for him to use It after the decision should be promulgated, but in no case to be used until promulgation. Thlb was done onthe2uth;ou the 23dSccretary suspended promulgation. S. W. LAMOREUX.' "Although It does not appear to whom the copy was given, yet as Mr. Lamoreux did not disclose the name of the person,, although requested to do so, and reported merely that he gave it to 'a party,' it is to be presumed that such party was not with out interest in the controversy. Moreover, before this department was advised that any decision had been signed, counsel for the bcrip holders requested that such an opinion be piomulgatcd. Knowledge of the opinion is, therefore, traceable to them. "The impropriety of giving out a copy of an un rendered, unpromulgated decision to one ot the parties to a controversy in ad vance of the day set for its formal an nouncement is too obvious to require com ment. .Mr. Lanioreux states that he gave a copy to a party three days in advance of the time appointed by himself for its pro mulgation in the usual and proper way. Neither faith,, nor credit can attach to an opinion under such circumstances. "Since it was, never properly filed, it was deemed besU-to .disregard it and direct a new trial- Tb,is was done. The law which justifies the action of the department may be found in the statutes of the United States and the decisions of its Supreme Court. The .leading case on the subject, Knight vs. Land Association, is found In 142 U. S., page 178, wherein Mr. Justice Lamar says:i j ' 'The statutes m placing the whole busi ness ot the department under the super vision of thq Secretary Invest him with authority to review, reverse, amend, annul or affirm all proceedings in the depart ment having, for their ultimate object to -secure the alienation of any portion of the public lunds, or the adjustment of private claims to lands, with a just re gard to the rights of the public and of private parties. Such supervision may bc exercised by direct order or by review on appeals. When proceedings affecting titles ot lands arc before the department the power of supervision may be exer cised by the Secretary, whether those proceedings are called to his attention by formal notice or by appeal,, It is suf- l ficient that they are brought to his notice. The rules prescribed arc designed to facili tate the department in the dispatch of business, not to defeat the supervision of the Secretary.' " It is said that Judge Lamoreux refused to meet Secretary Francis and left the city without calling upon him. The Commis sioner, however, took occasion before Mr. Francis departure, to tender his uncondi tional and immediate resignation. This was not accepted and the case was laid IS YOUR MEMORY FAILING?

CONSULTATION in person or rnrr by letter rnLL by Secretary Francis berore his successor, Mr. Bllsa. Yesterday Senator Spoouer, of Wisconsin, called on Secretary Bliss and urged that Judge Lamoreux be given an opportunity to explain and justify his action. Acting Commissioner Best decided, to grant a new hearing of the case of April 5. When questioned last night by a re porter ot The Times in regard to his future steps in the affair, Secretary Bliss Bald that he was unable at this time to make any statement other than that -w hich had gone out officially. The news of the vacation of his order reached Judge Lamoreux at Horicon, hi3 home in Wisconsin, yesterday, where ho is reported to be quite unwell. He was asked to express himself on the new phase ot the case. He declined to be interviewed. He said that the Land Office was the place to get all the information on the subject. A GOOD PLACE FOR PAYNE Report That He Has Been Offered tlio German Mission. It Is Sad News, if True, for Mer- rlnin Mr. Payne Declines to Commit Himself. Hon. Henry M. Payne, of Wisconsin, member of the National Republican com mittee, arrived in this city last night and is btaylng at the Arlington. Mr. Payne is the "great disgruntled" ot the McKinley Administration. It is said that he had almost a promise of a Cabinet position from Mr. Hanna and others, in fact, nearly everybody except President McKinley himself. He failed to connect with the Cabinet position. It is further stated by an astute poli tician that in the refusal of President Mc Kinley to keep the promises of his party leaders he exhibited a decided backbone Mr. Payne sulked. Senator Spooner is said to have consulted long and earnestly with President McKinley and also to have telegraphed Mr. Payne that he could have almost any diplomatic position he wished. It is reported that the gentleman who had had been refused a Cabinet position nn swered this telegram that he would take nothing from the present Administration. However, it is thought that Mr. Payne would not refuse the German mission. Mr. Payne is said to have dono great work during the campaign and to be deserving- of large recognition. Mr. McKinley s reasons for refusing to comply with the wishes or Mr. Hanna in the case of Mr. Payne have furnished material for much surmise. It is a fact that the gentleman from Wisconsin ha8 been prominent in -ways that have made him cordially disliked by organized labor. Mr. Payne doe3 not wish any position for the salary attachment. He is reputed to be a millionatro. Senator Spoouer was closeted with Mr. Payne for a long time last night. It is said he had good news for him; that his fate and Merriam's had been decided, by the offer of the German mission to him and not to Merriarn. This cannot, however, be verified. Mr. Payne was seen by a Times re porter, for a moment shortly after his ar rival, "My business in ttie National Capital at this time is of a personal nature. I ex pect to call on President McKinley while I am here, but my visit will be purely a social one, and will have no political sig nificance." Mr. Payne appeared to be in high good humor about something. TWENTY" CUBANS BUTCHERED. Bodies Left to He Devoured by Dogs and Vultures. Havana, March 13.

TWO TOlSJlllTEu The Mississippi River Again on a Rampage. WATER HIGHEST EVER KNOWN People of Marlon, Arte, Compelled to Leave Their Beds and FJee for-Tholr Lives The Levee Brolte and tho Surging: Waters Swept All Before It. Memphis, Tenn., March 13. The Missis sippi River here now registers a higher stage ot water than ever known. Disaster attending this condition began today, two Arkansas towns across from this city being submerged and the inhabi tants driven to safer places. These are Marion and West Memphis. The former is under from three to four feet of water, due to a break of its pro tection levee early this morning. The break occurred before many of the inhabi tants had left their beds and there was a scene of great bubtie and excitement, but no loss of life. Live &tock, however, is being almost decimated, the highest points in that section being under water. This city is, ot course, iu no danger as a whole, owing to its natural protection, but the bayou extending entirely through the city Is overflowing from river back water and threatening damage to abutting property. From one of the largest cotton sheds on its banks today it became necessary to remove three thousand bales ot cotton from the water's path. So far as known none of the main levees are trembling under the pressure ot water, but they are being guarded all along the line. HEART OF MARYLAND" SOLD. Mr. Ho hart Brooks Will Remain as Press Agent. "The Heart ot Maryland," David Belas co's most successful drama, went out of the possession of Mr. Max Bleiman last night and will tomorrow night be played at Philadelphia under the management of Mr. Bel as co. Mr. Bleiman purchased last season a two years' right to the play from Mr. Belasco. Three days ago Mr. Bleiman endeavored to induce Mr. Belasco to lease the play to him for another season. On Thurhdajv however, Mr. Belasco purchasedthescenery, properties and all rights for $1,500 from him for next seasou. There have been dissensions in "The Heart of Maryland" Company, as re cently stated lu The Times, growing out of the retirement ot Mr. Hobart Brooks, the press agent ot the company. Mr. Brooks went over to Philadelphia yesterday morning ostensibly and as far as he knew to take up the work of boom ing Mrs. Leslie Carter in the interest ot Mr. Belasco alone. He will now resume his former work, but under different aus pices. Mrs. Carter, it was whispered among theatrical gossips, was not on the best ot terms with Mr. Bleiman, and that pos sibly thismay have ended in a serious rupture. " The Lafayette was packed en Friday night and last night, when Mrs. Carter returned to the stage. It is surmised that she returned to her part to make things end smoothly after the sale of the play to Mr. Belasco. FIGHT IN A SALOON. Pistols and Stilettos Used With Fatal Results.

The new compressedair motor was given a trial on the Eckington and Soldiers Home Railway at 11 o'clock last night. The run was from Fifteenth and G streets to the power-house. The motor attracted considerable attention as it stood on the tracks opposite the Riggs House. The car was new, painted in accordance with the other rolling stock ot the company, and lighted brightly by three lamps burning the Pintsch gas. The car Is patterned after those in suc cessful operation in New York. It is thirty three feet in length, and weighs about 21,000 pounds. The cars for regular ser vice upon this road will be twenty-eight feet long and eonsiderablyllghter than this motor, which is fitted with the latest im proved fenders. The wheels are protected on the sides by steel bars. The controller and brake are almost identical in appear ance with those used on trolley cars. On the trip last night the car was in charge of C.A. Vogelsang, superintendent ot the IIoadley-Knight compressed air system. The tracks were Jiot cleared for the trial and no attempt at speed was made. The car ran smoothly, started and stopped without a jar, and took the grades and curves upon the road easily. There was no noise except a slight ex haust heard at starting and upon some of the curves. The car was reversed a number ot times when under way and started backward or forward without a jar. The car was controlled almost en tirely without the ?il of the brake. This trip was preliminary to the of ficial trial Tuesday, when a number of invited guests will be present. The car was run from the power-house to Center Market. Saturday morning, and easily took a sixty-foot radius curve on a 6 per cent grade. The gentlemen present on the trip last night were J. H. Hoadley, presi dent of the IIoadley-Knight compressed air system; Receiver W. K. Schocpf, of the road; O. H. Hoadley, and R. I. Todd, super intendent ot tho Eckington and Soldiers' Home Railway.
