The charges made by Nelson that the raid
was an attempt on the part of Deputy Sher-
iff Dcuterman to blarkmnll him. .iud that
lie fired into the posse of specials In
served to Intensify the Interest
that has been manifested in the affair
and the crowd expected some startling
facts to deelop as the Inquest proceeded.
The hour set for the Inquest was 1 1
o'clock, but Coroner llurch, who decided
to take cturge of It himself, instead of
leaving it tohisdeputy, James Dane, badnnt

Dcuterman and Nelson started toward

Patriotic citizens by thousands were out
to sec the parade and enjoy the music
Atujiig them. It Is hoped by local military
men, there were most of tbene wmembers of

The District National Guard and affilia-
ted organizations arc expected to make
such as those of New York, Ohio and Penn-syl- v
aula, but they are t rcated in a niggardly
manner that makes this Impossible even
when the enthusiastic members or the
organization go down deep Into their own
pockets for money to p.iy forthctrmuslcand
'tfieir outings. Ohio payslts men from $1. 2D
a day for privates up to $6 a day for the
colonel, wltli an extra allowance of $1.23
'for mounted men.
A comparison by Congressmen of these
.figures with what is done for the District
Guard, it is believed by members of that
organization, would result in more liberal
treatment. This sort of comment runs
through the membership on such an occa-
sion as today's holiday observance's.

FIRED WITH ENTHUSIASM.
Daughters of the Revolution Heard
The Daughters of the American Revo-
lution truly exemplified the objects of
their organization this morning in honoring
the birth ot Washington.
The many young people who witnessed
the exercises had patriotism and love ot
the American flag brought before thttn In
the vivid manner that never falls to leave
an Impression on the memory. To theolder
ones In the audience the occasion was one
of deep solemnity, and many eye9 were
wet as the deeds of revolutionary heroes
were told of in word and song.
The Daughters were assisted by the
Children of the American Revolution and
the Church of Our Father was well filled
with interested spectators.
The program was a most interesting one,
and was renderetl in a manner that called
forth contlnueel appkiuse. The committee
or arrangements, who had charge of the
affair, consisted of Mrs. John- - JV. Foster,
Mrs. Daniel Lothrop, Mrs. Miranda Tullock
and Mrs. Kate
Mrs. Adlai Stevenson, the newly-electe- d
president ot the Congress, occupied a
seat on the platform.
Mrs. John W. Foster, retiring president,
called the meeting lo order, after which
Rev. Wallace Radcllffc, D. D . offered
prayer. To the soul stirring strains of
"Columbia" acompany of children marched
upon the platform, bearing American
flags. They saluted the sacred emblem of
liberty, nnd after the "Star Spangled Ban-
ner" had been rendered by the drum corps
Master Henry Sklllman Breckinridge re-
cited "Our Flag."
MRS. FOSTER'S ADDRESS.
Two verses of "America" were sang by
the audience, when Mrs. Foster delivered a
short, but Interesting, address appropriate
to the occasion. She spoke of the lessons
of patriotism that were being inculcated
in the minds or the young, and was sure
that ir a rorelgnpowcrcven tried to trample
on the rights of America there would be
many and strong arms uplifted to protect
the country's honor.
The "Star Spangled Banner" was ad-
