In making up the schedule of athletic
contests amateur and professional to be
held at the Buffalo Exposition the man
agers of the athletic department seem to
June overlooked the popular same of bas
ketball so far as the militia Is con
cerned As this game has a very large
follow Inc all oer the country the omls
Bion has caused considerable enquiry as
to the reason and probably something
will come of It
Captain Edwards manager of the Cor
coran Cadet Corps basketball team has
suggested to the management of the ath
letic department of the exposition that a
basketball tournament open to Guardsmen
only be added to the string of athletic
competitions already arranged for
The plan Is to hold the tourney some
time in September when there will be a
general military encampment at the expo
kltlon and play say two games a day
afternoon and night to decide the cham
pionship of the United States The Idea
Is an excellent one and will no doubt re
ceive support on all sides
The athletic department of the exposi
tion has expressed itself favorably dis
posed toward the project If it is arrang
ed this city will send nt least two good
teams to the tournament
The indoor athletic beason at the T jr
C A came to a close last w eck when the
last set of contests in the semi monthly
series for the all around championship
was held The season has been a very
successful one eind Physical Directors
IMdeout and Hcckett and the athletic
committee are very well pleased with the
work of individuals and classes
The cfass of work shown by the mem
bers of teams has been of a high order
and promises noil for next season when
with greater experience and Increased
confidence local as well as national rec
ords may be upset
Glcason gives evidence of developing
Into a very clever field performer He held
a prominent place in each of last weeks
four events He was first In the three
standing broad jumps with 23 feet sec
ond In putting 32 pound shgt 22 feet G
inches tied with Meigs for third place
In the running high Jump 5 feet and tied
with Shear for third place in the rope
climbing event He scored IC points on
the evening
Captain Ravenburgs team has steadily
held the top place in the series of con
tests and finished with a team total of
4937S points to Its credit Captain Meigs
team second with 49175 Captain Xeales
team tnira witn J7C1 captain wcnarei
sons PTtri fourth SG31 and Captain But
lers teem nfth 3475
Captain llelgs team did splendid work
throughout and while his men were SO
points behind the leader on the last even
ings contests S5 to 35 the team total
was Just 20 points lower 1937S to I917
The rivalry was strong throughout but
the feeling of the most friendly sort The
members of the winning team will have
the honor of having their group photo
displayed In the trophy room at the As
sociation Building and their names and
scores will be Inscribed on the champion-

iii il nd oil to Rescind tu Order
Justice Cole yesterday ordered that a
writ of mandamus Issue against Henry
Clay Evans In his official capacity com
manding him to rescind an order dis
barring Henry D Phillips from practice
before that bureau The order also re
qnires the payment of certain fees to
Phillips in connection with pension
claims he was prosecuting before the
Commissioner of Pensions
The circumstances which led to the fil
ing of the petition for mandamus by Phil
lips are substantially as follows
On January 29 last two petitions for
writs of mandamus against Commissioner
Evans were filed In the District Supremo
Court by Phillips On February 5 190
the Commissioner of Pensions obtained
an order from the Secretary of the Inte
rior disbarring Phillips from further prac
tice The reason assigned for such order
was It Is stated that Phillips had allow
ed a notary public who was connected
with his business to charge a fee of 50
cents for taking an affidavit in tho State
of New Jersey while Evans Insisted that
the law of that State prohibited tho pay
ment of a greater fee for such services
than 12 cents This contenUon of Evans
was attacked and tho question raised
was promptly referred to the Assistant
Attorney General for an opinion who on
April 2G 1900 sustained Phillips conten
tion nnd stated that In the State of New
Jersey there is no law governing the
charges for notarial services but that be
long custom tho usual and regular fee
had come to be 10 cents in ordinary cases
Thereupon the Secretary of the Interior
April 21 1900 Issued nn order canceling
and revoking nnd holding for naupht the
order of February 5 disbarring Phillips
Notwithstanding this it is said Evans

between February 5 and April 23 refused
to recognize Phillips as an attorney and
in his cases solicited the appointment of
other attorneys The petition for writ of
mandamus recites that In the case of Sa
rah A Dockerty a widow filed by Phil
lips the Commissioner of Pensions had
denied him a fee because another attorney
had been substituted in his place during
the period of disbarment Phillips con
terded that he had never been disbarred
and that any acts done by H Clay Evans
could not Invade nor destroy his rights
under the law
The other case -before the courts was
that of Louisa Aab for accrued pension
due her deceased husband George Aab
Phillips had received a fee of 3 direct
from the applicant Evans held that this
payment was contrary to law and de
manded that Phillips surrender that
amount Phillips contended that an ac
crued pension case was not a claim for
pension within the meaning of the stat
ute nnd that the matter was one of con
tract between the attorney and the ap
Both of these cases were brought as
test cases The questions involved were
argued by counsel before Judge Cole on
March 12 and this morning the judge an
nounced his decision In both cases ha
decides in favor of PhilllpB
In the Dockerty case the court held
that Phillips was never disbarred that
he had not lost his standing nor any of
his rights no other attorney was substi
tuted In his stead that the United States
cannot through the Illegal acts of on of
its officers take advantage of its own
wrong and that therefore Phillips is en
titled to be recognized and paid the fee
