FAB FROM DESEST SANDS
True Believers Journey to
Oasis of River View.
A Day of Fa.st and Furious Fnn at
tlie Annual Outinpr of tlic Xoljles of
the My.stic Shrino, "Who Ld Their
"CamelH From tho Torrid City
the Temple of Coconnut 31111c
From desert sands the Arabs flee,
Tlie Mecca lies by Oman's Sea. '
The Shriners and belioers go
Where houris smile and bottles flow.
The weary camels shoot the chutes,
The pilgrims -dine on malted roots
No cheer is lacked, no wine is hid
Allah forbid! Allah forbid!
Now, behold when the sun had come out
the fivc-and-twentieth dawn in the eighth
month, and the camels had come to suffer
from a great drought, the true believers
who are the Sons of Almas and are the
Light of the Eastern Branch, turned their
faces unto the people and cried, "Lo! Our
camels do sink from thirst and the sands
of the great P Street desert are bitter.
Therefore will we depart this day unto the
Shrine, which is upon the sweet waters of
Oman, and which is the oasis of River
View." And being that It was the time of
the year appointed for a pilgrimage, the
true believers took up their tents and went
with their camels. And of the people in
the faith who also went with them the
number was about 0,000.
So were the Shriners and the camels and
the peopls placed upon great galleys, -which
swam upon the waters. And when the
oasis of River View had been reached, the
Shriners and the camels and the people
came from the galleys and entered the
Sacred Grove of the Dinner Bell. And
behold! hsre were the tables filled and
waiting, and all good things to drink and
to eat were there. And the true believers,
seeiuc that no man's shadow had fallen
upon the good things, broke bread and
partook of salt. And the number of the
people who were of the faith and who
had come was even 6,000. ,
Being filled with food and content the
pilgrims sought the Shrine which they had
lead of in the Koroaran, and which was
only to be seen by the eyes of such as had
kissed the Sacred Pink Camel and the
Green Scudi. Therefore went they forth
and each found the Shrine, even though
there were many Shrines. In the Valley
of the Bump was a great Sacred Chute and
herein shot many believers and found the
Shrine. Again did tie pilgrims mount
blooded steeds of wood and prance away
through the Vale of Cow Music. Also in
the Grove of the Shirt "Waist did othere
find the true Shrine, while they danced
with peris and houris and cymbals and
lutes made music. But the true Shrine
was found in the Temple of Cocoanut Mill:,
where, certain wise Viziers dispensed the
Dew of Heaven and the Tears of the Brew
master. So were the thirsted camels led into
the truo Shrine and were filled with the
Water of Life. And the camels departed,
paying, "See that hump?" And many other
pilgrims found pleasure in rolling great
balls upon small pins and in shuffling and
flaying at many strange games which were
in the oasis. And when the Chanter al
Koran had called the pilgrims together
the Keeper of Uie Exalted Pass, E. B.
Hay, would have spoken to the multitude.
And the Chief Rabban, Frank K. Ray
mond, stood at the gates and insured the
lives of those who might "risk" the ordeal.
And when any man had been talked out of
an eye or a tooth, behold, the Medicine
Man, Floyd V. Brooks, returned an tye
for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. And
the pilgrims were happy.
Also did the other medicine men, D,
Percy Hickling, the large; J. J?1. R. Ap
pleby, and Robert R. Cooke, serve those
who had ears to hear and had lost their
hearing. When any weary pilgrim had
strayed from the path to the Temple of
Cocoanut Milk he was cored for by the
watchful marshal, Samuel Hart, who saw
that no man became lost In a strange oasis.
And when any bold pilgrim had fed too
long upon the dew of heaven, he was taken
Into the arms of Capt. A. W. Kelley and
Dr. A. G. White, who led him unto the
caravansary of Frank K. Sebring, who, be
ing a wisa judge and versed in trials, .sen
tenced all offenders to appear before him at
the next pilgrimage of Shriners.
AH men are wise, and Shriners are made
doubly so by seeing what Is writ. So,
when the searchlights upon the galleys
in the river failed to show forth full
brightly, the wise Capt. Allison Kailor
tendered the use of the precious stones
which are upon his raiment, and behold,
the waters were bright as day. It was
indeed a glorious and good pilgrimmage,
and all were happy. The camels being
filled and the Shriners fulled.
And In the night, when other Arabs had
folded their tents and were in sleep, cer
tain Ethiopians who were wise in dancing
and walking after cakes, were brought
upon a stage and much singing and merry
music was in the air. The Musician Wil
liam A. Haley was with those of the
Shrine, and such soothing melody came
from his wand as might cause other leaders
to play Sousa inarches. The walking for
cakes by the Ethiopians was a grand fea
ture, and was much amusing to the Arabs
who were present in tribe3. The Twentieth
Century and West End Clubs were the
participants, and many large kegs of ap
plause were given them. Also were the
waters and the oasis lighted with red
lights and fireworks during the night, in
honor of the day and the pilgrims.
Those who led the camels and the be
lievers to the Shrine are named below:

A CLASH OF ATJTHOBITY.
Cause of the Trouble on the Trans
The gossip which has been caused by
Via conflict of authority between the cap
tain and the quartermaster of the trans
port McClelland has, to some extent, ruffled
the temper of the officers in the Quarter
master's Department of the Army. The
facts are that Captain Brlnkley, the navi
gating officer of the ship, and Captain
Girard, the quartermaster in charge of
tho transport, clashed while the McCIel-
land was discharging her cargo at Gibara,

to New York, tried by general court-martial
and dismissed from the service.
The navigator's version of the trouble
is that while discharging his cargo at Gi
bara, Cuba, his barometer indicated a
storm and he .desired to take his ship into
the open sea for safety. The quartermas
ter would not permit this and placed the
captain under arrest.
The other side is that Captain Brinkley
was intoxicated and used profane or abu
It was said yesterday at the office of the
Quartermaster General that the division
of authority between navigating captains
and quartermasters in charge of ships is
so clear and well defined that no conflict
may justly arise between them.
The navigating captain is supreme in
command when the ship is at sea. The
quartermaster is in command of the ship
in port. lie shall direct to which port
the ship must sail. He Ts responsible for
the conduct of the employes and the care
of the supplies. It is said that while the
McClelland was at. Gibara the barometer
showed a small decline. The cargo was
being discharged and the captain came on
board under the influence of liquor. He
said: "I am going to take this ship to
Words followed and it is charged that
the navigating captain abused tho quar
termaster, and employed profane epithets.
The depot quartermaster at Gibara sus
tained the ship's quartermaster. The ship's
captain was placed under arrest and sent
to New York, where the finding of the
court was that he should "be dismissed
from the service of the United States with
out prejudice to his ability as a navigator."
The marine journals throughout the
country are condemning the quartermas
ter's department for seeking to interfere
with a merchant captain wanting to iut
to sea when his glass indicates the ap
proach of a storm. They hold that a cau
tious captain should always do this when
his ship is not in a land-locked harbor.
MORE DELAY IN MOVING-.
Transfer o the Postoflice Depart
ment Akiiiii Postponed.
The removal of the Postofllcc Depart
ment to the new building in Pennsylvania
Avenue has been postponed until October
1. Already a lot of furniture and records,
not used in the department, has been trans
ferred to the new building, and preparations
had been made for the actual change or
quarters on September 1. Yesterday at
noon an official notice was issued to the
clerks that they would have one month
more In which to finish the work of pack
ing ths archives of tho department.
It Is said that the principal cause for the
postponement is that the furniture is not
yet ready for the new building, and the
contractor has been given an extension of
time until October to have the building in
perfect condition to receive the General
The postponement was a disappointment
to many of the clerks, and bets were of

greater disappointment, however, to the en

Indian Office, and a division ot the Pension

the Interior the space vacated in the Patent

THE RECORD OF A TEAR.
The Aiinnal Report of the "Wnh ins
The annual report of the Washington
Asylum, which includes the District work
house and almshouse, was yesterday sub
mitted to District Commissioner Ross by
W. H. Stoutenburgh, Intendent of the
institution. Accompanying the statement
was a schedule of estimates for expenses
during the fiscal year which will end June
30, 1901. These aggregate $221,615.80, the
principal Items in the budget being ?G6,300
for contingent expenses based on a dailr
average of C63 persons supported in the
institution during the past fiscal year at
$100 each per annum; ?50,0C0 for continu
ing the erection of the new workhouse for
male prisoners, and $80,782.80 for acquiiing
the title to two squares on which It is
proposed to erect new hospital buildings.
Intendent Stoutenburgh reports a defi
ciency of ?2,S53.65 caused by the increased
price of many articles of daily consump
tion. Ho refers briefly to the recent ojU
break of smallpox at the asylum, an1,
pioceeding, declares that the principal iur
pioVement in recent years has been the
erection and furnishing of the nurses'
home building and the establishment of a
training school for nurses. The work on
tlie new building began in October, and
the home was completed and occupied
June 2 last,
Mr. Stoutenburgh informs the municipal
authorities that the great demand which
has been made upon the institution for the
care of dependent classes, especially during
the winter months, gives him cause for
anxious thought as to what is to bo done
to properly care for them; and especially
as to the hospital department, the facili
ties of which, he thinks, should be in
creased a hundred beds in order to meet
constantly increasing demands. The pur
chase of certain ground adjacent to the
asylum grounds is earnestly recommcndel
by Mr. Stoutenburgh as sites for new hos
pital buildings. The report further de
tails the number of prisoners in the work
house, the amount of work furnished by
the chaingang during the last fiscal year,
the labor secured from female Inmates,
and the labor products of the Institution.
The highest number of prisoners housed
in the almshouse at any one time was 231,

PLANS ASSUMING SHAPE
Details of the Dewey Reception
Many Supsrestlons Offered for Con
sideration to tlie Executive Com
mitteeThe Admiral JVovr Expected
to Arrive lu Washington on 3Ion
day, Octoher .2 Governors Invited.
Tho executive committee of the Dewey
reception -held a meeting at the Ames
Building yesterday afternoon. All the com
mittees were represented by their chair
men. Tho question of the date of Dewey's
arrival In Washington was brought up.
Secretary Van Wickle stated that tho Ad
miral would probably reach New York Sep
tember 28 and be entertained there, that
day and also on tho 29th, and it might be
best to have him come to Washington
Monday, October 2, as he will have had
time to rest In New York Sunday. No of
ficial action was taken about the date of
tho reception, but it is more than prob
able that a special train bearing the Ad
miral -will leave New York Monday,
October 2, at 2 p. m., reaching Wash
ington over tho Pennsylvania Railroad
at 8 p. m. that evening. In antici
pation of tho Admiral's arrival tho
parade will probably form at the Capitol,
with its right resting at Pennsylvania
Avenue and Sixth Street, near the Penn
sylvania Railroad depot, and when the Ad
miral arrives he will be escorted over the
line 01 tne parade to the place selected for
entertainment. The presentation of
the sword will take place "Wednesday, Oc
tober 3, either at noon or 4 p. m., and the
reception at the Wnite House will be held
the same evening.
It was decided to send official announce
ments of the reception and parade to the
Governors of tho various States and urge
them to be present with their staffs. A
special invitation will be extended to the
Governor of Vermont and staff, who will
be the guest ot tho general committee.
The question of quarters for Vermont's
chief executive will be discussed later by
the public comfort committee. The chair
men of the committees on parades and
decorations and illuminations announced
that they would need 2,000 and ?3,000 re
spectively. A letter was read from Major
Sylvester, Chief of Police, in which he
states that extra policemen and detectives
would have to be paid by the general com
mittee, as there are no public funds avail
able for sucn purposes. Major Sylvester
estimates the expense at $700, with ?S0O ad
ditional if the line of the parade is. roped
off. Estimates of the amounts of money
needed by all the committees were atked
of the various chairmen. They will re
port at a meeting of the executive commit
tee to be held at the Ames Building next
Thursday at 4 o'clock p. to. A suggestion
from M. I. Weller, that paper flags be dis
tributed along the line of march for dec
orative purposes was referred to the
It was announced ' that the souvenir
medals will soon he completed and be
ready for distribution on September 26.
Mr. Wolf suggested; that the freedom ot
the city be extended Admiral Dewey in an
appropriate manner when he reaches the
District line. The Idea met with favor and
will probably he adopted. It was decided
to change the date of meeting of the
finance committee (a next Tuesday at 4:15
p. m., In tho Ames Building. An auditing
committee comppsed of the following gen
tlemen was announced by Chairman Cox:
John Joy Edson, chairman; James 1. Nor
ris, vice chairman Charles G. Beebe, Wil
liam Burchard, William A. De Caindry, H.
P. R. Holt, James: F. Hood, W. F. Mac
Lennon, John D. McChesney, Clarence F.

The committee on public comfort and
order held a meeting at tho Ames Build
ing yesterday afternoon at A o'clock.
Chairman Greenlees presided. At the sug
gestion of the chair, Arthur O'Neill, who
acted as secretary, read a letter from
Major Sylvester, Chief of Police, In which
he stated for extra police precautions there
would be needed 100 horses at ?3 per diem;
ten detectives from New York, Philadel
phia, and other cities for three days and
their transportation, $225; fifty additional
private policemen, at $2 each, and inci
dentals, 50, a total of $575. It was sug
gested that twenty-four messenger boys be
employed to assist in caring for visitors,
and that bureaus of information bo estab
lished at tho railway depots. The chair
was requested to appoint chairmen for sub
committees on hotels, visiting Governors,
and especially invited guests, hospitals, and
