ami killed by John C. Nelson during a raid

on the lattcr'g saloon and gambling bouse

Thursday night.

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

fell, and Ben Bines, who was near the

door leading from the saloon Into the next

room, staggered into the room and fell

"Did any of your men fire nny shots?"

asked Mr. Johnson, for the defense.

"Yes, sir; while I was trying to get away

I fired my pistol in self defense."

"You ran out of the back door of the

"Yes, sir."

"Did any of the others have pistols?"

"Mr. Deuterman and Mr. Johnson had

their pistols out."

"Did you see anyone shove a pWol In

Boon after dinner yesterday Charles

Cornet! and George Kawley, two linemen,

who bad been detailed to find the trouble,

Carnes climbed to the top of the role as

hurrledlyashe could, swungonelegovcronc

wires. He had a pair of pliers In one hand,

while with the other he clung to the lwle.

The air whistled around him with nothing

Carnes called to his n that

he was almost freezing, and that unless he

discovered the trouble speedily he would

have to descend and let his partner try It.

Kawley turned his back to the wind and

drew his head dowu in his coat to i okl the

stinging blast.

When he again looked at Camcs he was

noriricd to sec that he fellow workman

unconscious. His leg was still over the

pole, which prevented him from ailing,

his hand still retain the pliers, buthung

stiffly against a wire and his body was

inclined against the pole, around which

one arm was wound.

Rawley called to this companion, but

received no. answer. A crowd toon con-

electric current had passed through the

Defenders of the Capital Made

a Fine Parade.


The Second IicKlnn-n- t Turned Oat at

an Early Ilonr Soerul ConiiuinU'H

Left the City, Hat It eturned In Time

for thu Afternoon Event Hundred!,

of Fine FcIIowh in Line.

The National Capital was wholly given

oc today to celebrating the 184th an-

niversary of the birth of the city's founder,

and in whose liunorit was named.

There were imposing military parades,

extending along Pciinsj lvanla a euue from

the Capitol past the White House, morning

and afternoon, in which all the District

militia participated.

The Cycle Corps, with a day's rations

and twenty rounds of cartridges, demon-

strated tho adaptability of the bicycle-t- o

military purposes by throwing a skir-

mish line ten miles up the Potomac River,

where a sham battle was held.

Troop A rode to Brlghtwood, returning

in time for the afternoon parade.

On Capitol Hill a distinguished audience

gatliercdlu the Senate chamber to hear the

president pro tempore of that body, Senator

Frye of Maine, read Washington's farewell

address, and the National Daughters of the

Revolution closed their Fifth Continental

Congress u itli commemorntlreexcrclscsln

which many patriotic wx;iclies took part.

The Oldest Inhabitants' Association held

an impressive ceremony in honor of the

day, and the Legion of Loyal Women al.--o

commemorated the anniversary by appro-

priate exercises.

All the executive departments were, of

course, closed.


Defenders of the Capital Made a

Fine Parade.

The military companies of the capital

made the most of u beautiful day for the

cUehratiou of the anniversary of Amer-

ica's greatest soldier.

Tfiere were colors flashing In the brill-

iant sunlight, strains of martial music

sounding through the crisp air and sol-

dierly forms Inspired with patriotism march-

ing and countermarching from early moru-ip- g

(111 late In the afternoon.

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

Congress, who might be inspired by hat

they sawtodojustlcetoa neglected division

of the national service.

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.


The first out for the day were Troop A.,

he President's Caalry Company, under

Capt. Harrison S. Barbour, and the light

battery, under Capt. II. G. Forsbcrg. They

formed at the L street armory at 9 a.m.

and started for Bright wood for a field day,

to return for the parade at a p. ro.

They made a proul array aB they staned

in the bracing air for the suburban rendez-

vous. All were fully equipped with their

new accoutrements. About fifty ot Troop

A were in line, and took the road, accom-

panied by a platoon of the battery, flic

band spent tec morning In drill, took lunch

at the roaduouse about ooiiii, and were in

the city in" ample time for Col. Moore's

big display.

At 10 u. m. sharp, according to orders,

the Becond Regiment or the D. C. N. G.

followed the cavalry in assembling at the

armory. About 200 men were present.

A quarter of an hour later they started,

under command of Col. Cecil Clay and

Lieut. Col. Emmet Drell and the regimental

staff. The new military band of the Second

Regiment led the way. The full quota of

three batalllons fell In line following.

The Fourth batalllon was commanded by

Major E. R. Campbell, with Company A,

Emmet Guards, Capt. Harry Walsh; Com-

MaJ. Otto S. Suess, who was accompanied

by his staff. The national colors a ppcared

almost to a man were in their places.

The route was on L street, from the

armory, to Fifth, to New York avenue, to

Sixteenth street, to H, to Seventeenth, and

thence to Pennsylvania aenuc. Up this

thoroughfare the column moved to Wash-

ington Circle.

Throughout the regiment was drilled in

regimental evolutions by Col. Clay. At the

Circle the movements were prolonged and

From the Circle the regiment moved about

were the Old Guard, commanded by Capt.

James M. Edgar, and the National Fenci-hl- e,

by Capt- - Charles B. Domcr. The e

popularity of the Fenclbles was ruanl-reste- d

by cheers at various points along

the line.


The division containing the eight com-

panies of the High School Cadets, was hon-

Daughters of the Revolution Heard

Spirited Speeches.

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."


Two verses of "America" were sang by

the audience, when Mrs. Foster delivered a

short, but Interesting, address appropriate

complish great and noble results."
