They Robbed the Stores of Ninth
Street Merchants.
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,
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

this work bv Monday, so as to be able to
present a tariff bill to the House for ref
erence to the Committee on Ways and
Means, which will probably then bu ap
pointed, and for prompt report bank to the
House for its consideration and action.
"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

in writing.

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..
It Mas Been Postponed Until Mondny
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

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

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
" '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

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
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.

a scene of great bubtie and excitement, but
no loss of life. Live &tock, however, is

There have been dissensions in "The

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

she returned to her part to make things
end smoothly after the sale of the play
to Mr. Belasco.
Pistols and Stilettos Used With
Fatal Results.
New York, March 13. There was a mur
derous and bloody affray tonight in Michael
Carmelo's saloon, at 113 Elizabeth street,
between eleven Italians. Jago Moro was
shot In the head and dangerously Injured.
His brother John was also shot in the
head but was not badly hurt. SantoBrutso
was shot in the left temple and will die.
The right occurred shortly before 11
o'clock. Carmelo's saloon is a resort for
Italian sailors and laborers. Tonight there
were about thirty men in the place, drink
ing, playing cards and carousing. A quarrel
arose and soon a general fight was in
Stilettos and pistols were drawn, and
the fighting lasted for several niinute.
Pcoplein the neighborhood were alarmed
by the cries, and the shooting, and sum
moned the police, who quelled the dis
turbance and made several arrests- When
the place was cleared the three injured
men were found. They were taken to a
Successful Trial of tho New Motor
on tho Eckington Line.
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
