Although the Inaugural ceremonies will
not be held for almost a week the city is
rapidly Hlllng up with visitors Intent on
seeing the sights before the rush begins
The hotel registers testify to the number
of strangers already in the city and there
is nn unmistakable increase in the size of
the crowds on Pennsylvania Avenue The
cafe proprietors say their business has
already Incrcasesl per cent which is
Indisputable evidence that other than
Washingtonlans are in the city From
the Htireiu of Kngravlng and Printing
comes the Information that there are now
more strangers In the city than at any
other one time since the Dewey celebra
The Hureau of Kngravlng -pd Print

which the coming unci going of visitors
to the city Is estimated said an official
When wo have few visitors it Is a wife
bet tliat there nre not many strangers In
the cits When the building is overrun
Willi callers you can rest assured that
the sightseers are numerous throughout
the city This assertion can be proved
by a talk with any one of the officials
the printers or tlie guides principally
the latter The officials and printers have
rnthlng to do with the visitors except
to look them over as they pass but with
the guides It Is different They have to
receive the strangers hllot thejn through
the building and explain the workings
of the different departments
Tlie various hotels are also beginning to
feel tlie pressure Many of the prosp c
tlve visitors however engaged quarters
minths In advance so that now only
temporary accommodations can be se
cured by tourists Hy the end of the
week many who now occupy rooms In
the hotels will be forced to leave and
seek quarters In boarding houses The
number of guests thus forcesj to seek new
quarters will run into the hundreds ac
cording to tlie statements of the hotel
clerks and the records of the office
which show tliat nearly every room In all
the downtown hotels Is now occupied

The present condition of affairs re

thus time before the Inauguration
the sale of tickets began to fall

travel out or the city Hut we had plcnts
of work to do after the Inauguration It

For days after Mirch 4 there was a line
of tourists reaching way mt Into tin

There was 11 scarcity of seating room nnd

President of the council After listening
to addresses by Mrs Margaret Sangster
of New York and Dr Sarah J Elliott a
missionary who hui been engaged In work
among the Mormons for a number of
years a resolution was Introduced and
unanimously adopted which expressed the
favor with which the council regarded the
movement td abolish polygamy by amend-
lller the Constitution
Resolutions also adopted calling
upon tho District authorities to refuse
any applications for permits to open the
atres in Washington on Sunday
Mrs Darwin James the President of
the council wvj introduced by Mrs Teu
nis Hamlin In a brief address Mrs James
Htated the purpose for which tho council
was organized which she said was to
promote the work of women along Chris
tian nnd patriotic lines She said that
the first work to be undertaken was the
speedy abolishment of polygamy from the
culled States through action of Congress
The most effectual way to do this she
said was to be found in tlie enactment ot
an anti polygamy amendment to the Con
stitution In conclusion MrsJnmes stat
ed that tills was absolutely necessary In
order to pt event the spread of polygamy
until it would have gained such strength
that In order to exterminate it another
civil war would be precipitated The
speaker asserted tliat the Mormon fulth
aim especially me practice or polygamy
was rapidly gaining ground In the West
and besought all denominations to join
forces to crush out the growing evil
Mrs Margaret E Sangster ot New
York was introduced when Mrs James
had concluded The subject of her ad
dress was The Sanctity of the Home
Mrs Sangster pictured the home as tho
stronghold of national morality and clean
liness nnd said In part
The home Is the most tisccious posses
sion we have Home life Is founded on
love purity fidelity and fear of God A
man gets his li shest ideal of woman from
the women In his home No home stands
entirely alone It has Its relations to the
church and to the state
If anywhere In this land there exists
a condition of things In which the home
Is trampled upon men brutullzed and
women degraded there lies a menace
to the peace and order of the
whole national life just as in physical
life The dfsense of one organ affects
the health of the whole
The curse of rests not on
that alone but Is a blot on H J escutch
eon of tlK nation
Information concerning the practice of
polygamy hi Utah and other Western
States was contained in the address of
Dr Sarah J Elliott a member of tho
council who for seven years was a mis
sionary in Utah She spoke of the con II
tlons existing In Utah Dr Elliott said
that the general Impression that polygt
my was exrlnct among tho Mormons was
an erroneous one
She showed that since Utah acquired
statehood there had been a great in
crease In the ireachlne of the doctrine of
polygamy nnd that this was responsible
for a considerable Increase In the prac
tice She spoke of the homes In Utah
nnd the manner In which the nraetice of
polygamy Is reganled by Mormon women
iiut tnose women wno nau neen tiorn
Mormons she added regard the Practice
or polygamy ns a divine institution
In touching on the political effect of the
spread of polygamy Dr Elliott showed
that there were at present nine Western
States where it was practiced nnd that
If there was to be an extension the doc
trine would gain such strength that the
laws of the land might lie set ab defiance
Dr Elliott said tliat nt present the pub
lie schools of Utah were under control of
the dominant Church and the children
are taught by Mormons who advocate
the diictrlne of polygamy She mjged all
present to Join forces regardlesHt sect
nnd interest themselves In theTBMIsh
ment of the Iniquity
Mrs Tennis S Hamlin added a plea for
the cause in a brier speech speaking or
the Kood work that had been done by
those who Interested themselves In the

The- Xntlonnl Tom Pinch
When Charles Dickens wrote Martin
Chuzzlewlt he devoted not a word In its
preface to Tom Pinch tlie self sacrificing
character around whom the most attrac
tive portion of Ills famous novel vas con
structed but Mr E S Willard in his
drama of that name entertained a largo
and appreciative audience at the National
Theatre last evening
The dramatization of Martin Chuzzle
wlt was In many respects remarkable
Th author of the play modestly de
scribed It on the programme as construct
ed of incidents from the work of the cele
brated English author but It wasn most
satisfactory portrayal of the principal
characters and faithfully followed the
thread of the story
Sir Willard In the title role was all
that could be desired He presented the
Ideal of Dickens conception of the gentle
lovable and self sacrificing man about
whom the others in the story revolved like
the spokes In n wheel Mr Willard was
frequently applauded by a large and Intel
ligent audience which was entertained by
a play entirely devoid of action but so
artistic In Its every feature that It was
pleasing and satisfying throughout
One of tje remarkable things about last
nights performance was the perfect bal
tnce of the company There was not a
weak member of the cast Mr Frederick
Volpe is to be especially commended fur
his delineation at the arcli hypocrite
Pecksniff The other characters were
presented hy the following J G Taylor
