The Business Woman's Club scored another success at the last social meeting, at which a full quota of members and guests were present. A departure was made in the introduction of some quaint and laughable games, ineluding a gigantic sneeze by the entire company, the mystic words being "fish, lash, hash," pronounced in concert at a given signal. The evening was made still further enjoyable by the rendering of some charming duets on piano and mandolin, including an exquisite "Spanish Serenade" by Miss Clifto' and Miss Annabel Clifton of the National Mandolin Club. Miss Leavitt also sang delightfully two songs, "Good Bye, Sweet Day," and a dainty Japanese lullaby. To Prevent the Erection of a Porch. A bill in equity has been filed by Patrick O'Farrell against Clarence F. Norment, to prevent the erection by Mr. Norment of a porch on the latter's house on 14th street, Columbia Heights. Mr. O'Farrell claims that the porch' not only cuts off his view, but has also prevented the sale of one of his houses. The continuity of the building line will be broken, states Mr. O'Farrell, and he charges that the erection of the porch will be in violation of a stipulation required by Senator John Sherman, who formerly owned the land, that no building should be erected within thirty feet of the building line..

George ft Colton of Baltinre, made yesterday to a t Star reporter, is preparing to nash ethe dl most vigorous campaign that its, managers t have conducted for a. quarter of a century, E and they expect to -be able to regain con- le trol of the government of the city of Balti- Q more, exclusive of the mayoralty, for which w there Is no election. There Is scarcely a politician In either B party in Maryland who does not know Mr. A Colton either personally or by reputation. On For a any 'years he was a member of the I famous combination of Gorman, Rasin and D Colton, who during the fifteen years fol- )d lowing the close of the war and the return an of the democratic party to power In-'the Mi state parceled out .the offices among their to friends. - gi Since 1880, however.. about which time p1 Mr. Gorman thwarted Mr. Colton's ambi- wO thon to become president of the Chesapeake t and Ohio Canal Company, as Mr. Gormah's gr sccessor. the latter having -been elected United States Senator, there has been a bitter feeling between.Meesrs. Colton and 81 Gorman, and the former has devoted his entire energies to so bringing about affaita as to prevent the return of Mr. Gorman to the Senate at the expiration of the present term of the latter. His Prayers Have Bden:AWme to "My prayers have been answered.". said an Mr. Colton to a Star reporter. "I wanted Li to live to ree Mr. Gorman laid out politically. and the time has at last arrived. I d9 M not want to say anything about my old- se time friend and late antagonist, for'we are T again friends, but Mr. Gorman is the i worst laid out politician in this country today, and I think he will neither go to the F Chicago convention nor attempt to dictate Ce to those who do go." The reporter asked Mr. Colton to tell him o scmething about the plans for the reorgani- W sation of the democratic party in Mary- W lard, and to this Mr. Colton replied: "The A democrats who went from us last fall and R caused our defeat are for the most portion ca honest, and it was not because-they desired b to see the republicans carry the state. to It was to Institute a reform that experience had demonstrated could not be done/within w the party, and they determined to do what H Tilden did many years ago in New York. B "They were- not less loyal to the de- gr mocracy because they repudiated the dem- a ccratic ticket last fal, and they are now T ready, under new leaders, to reorganize of for its success. Yen may put it down for ur a fact that all the old leaders will be con- It spicuous by their absence from the man- its agement or any participation in the coming ph *apin * or New Managers of the Party. wi "Among those most prominently talked of as the new managers for the party are ex- IsI Judge William A. Fisher of Baltimore. who be will be backed up by such men as ex-Gov. nc and ex-United States Senator William ' Pinkney Whyte, Skipwith Wilmer and con- AI servative democrats in the various counties, te and if I live I hope to add my little mite at to the cause. fe "I believe that before the middle of May s the party will be in a fair way to reor- r ganize. I have communicated with many af men in the different parts of the state, and Is the consensus of opinion is that with good al conservative men as nominees as electors ci for President and for Congress that we th shall certainly be able to carry the state. w "The republicans since they have been - in power have by their weakness and imbecillty played Into our hands, and many o democrats who three months ago were oe discouraged at the prospect are now elated g -with the Idea of restoring the party to of power again in the state. 12 Members of the Eleetoral Cllege. do "So far as candidates for members of the e electoral college are concerned. it is probable that Judge Fisher will be the delegate- w at-large from the western shore and Col. 3a Edward Lloyd for the eastern shore. For Iii the first congressional district the nominee. will probably be Sidney I. Wilson of th Worcester, for, although he was against the MI democratic ticket last fal, he is still loyal gc to the party. In the second district the N nominee will, it is likely, be either Mr. ci; Michael of Harford county or John S. Wirt al of Cecil. The candidate from the third dis- or trict will be some young man of recognised er ability. In the fourth district the nominee at will be either Skipwith Wilmer or ex-Senator Thomas G. Hayes. Robert Moss of Annapolis will probably be named from the i fifth district, and Edward Mealey of Wash- t ington county will probably stand for the sixth. e Probable Cogressonal Candidates. so "There is some talk as to demo- R cratic candidates for Congress to be voted for next fal, but nothing deft- co nite has been arranged in that direction. le It is most likely, however, that the nom- th inees will be about as follow.: First dis-c trict, ex-Goy. E. E. Jackson of Wlconlico; second, State Senator 3. W. Herring of Carroll. or L. M. Bacon of Baltimore county; third, which comprises the eastern part c of Baltimore city, Peter J.Campbell; fourth, I the western part of the city, Joseph S. Heinsler, or some other lawyer equally as well and favorably known; fifth, Mr. Claggett of Prince George's, and sixth, Mr. ~ Maulsby of Frederick. Can't Eleet German's Sueeer. . E "TIhe saddest feature of the outlook is that there Is hardly a possibility that the M democrats will be able, to elect a successor to Mr. German. The republican party will undoubtedly control the nent state senate, and while the democrats may have the house of delegates, It will avail them nothing. Whether Mr. Gorman will be a candi- of date for re-election will, of course, depend sc entirely on circumstances."Without any coloring of the matter on my part I can say the poltical skies areel brighter all over the state, for the democ-ii racy, and it only needs a unity of'pur-pose m and ignoring of self for the party to gain te one of its old-time victories." e The Balttamere Munielpal Fight. In reference to the penngtroubles be- 13 tween Mayor Hooper and the city council of of Baltimore, Mr. Colton said: "This con-t tt is fraught with great interest. While r I know nothing of law yet, from all I have se been able to ascertain the council, in tak- w~ ing away the appointing power of -the 0c mayor, whether it was a proper move on de their part or not,CTacted entirely within pc their legal rights t6-'do as they did. PC "Mayor Hooper started out as a reformer, a. and every one thought that he was going to PR make a model majior, but when he Ignored PR the members of the' bouncil, and would not n1e advise or consult ylth them at all, and til believed that he ~knew more than every- be body else, he caused many of his friends to 15 come to the coiaclusion that he was a weak and vain man of narrow-gangs ideas, and he has done more to divide the republican party in the city of Baltimore than any- A thing that has yet occurred."

Mr. Simon Wolf made short speech before the program was mmenced, in which he scored the agitars of the Sunday rest law for the District d complimented Prof. William Waldecker on the efficient way in which he had sadled the Saengerbund as a leader. The engerbund sang in excellent style under r.

Mr. Watterson is one the best-known orators and lecturers of a present day, and there is no reason to ubt that he will be given as hearty a reption In Washington as he has been acrded in other great cities. Mr. Watterson .s been greeted by crowded houses everyiere he has appeared, and has received the me liberal press notices from all the lead; papers of the country. He has traveled tensively throughout the west, giving his :tures on Lincoln and other subjects of e day, visiting Denver, Kansas City, inneapolis, St. Paul, Chicago, and has ne over routes extending from Boston to !w Orleans and as far west as San Franico. The lecture on Lincoln is one of his lest efforts, and is all the more forceful account of the lecturer being a confedate soldier and a representative southern atesman. biss Richards' Lecture.-Miss Janet Elizath Richards delivered an interesting lecre on "Paris, Modern and Historic," at e Universalist Church, 13th and L streets 'rthwest, Saturday evening, before a large dience.

Heond idagl in a fight be- 1 fore he reached the pool pepm. Not. satisfled with the one fight, he started another with William Bosley, wheawasin charge of the place. Lee soon had possessionitot theoream.'and not only were the gameglinterrupted,: but the players fled. .Bricks were thrown, and Lee's condudt was so bad that Boxley drew a pistol to defend himseltfrom the assault. He fired- two shots, and? both bullets took effect. There was not much force to the weapon, and for that reason the proprietor of the place was able to appear in court today. One of the bullets.had struck him in the back between his shoulders, but there was not force enough to bury It in the flesh, and only a slight flesh wound was received. The other bullet struck Robert bouglass in the arm and disabled him. - , Policeman Maddox of the third precinct responded when. he heard the pistol shots, and arrested both Robert Lee and William Boxley. Lee would have- continued fighting had he not known the policeman who had him in charge. Although Boxley had used. the pistol, the officer thought he was justified In doing so,' but, he did not care to take the responsibility of releasing him, and so he held him on a-charge of assault. This morning the party. appeared.. in the Police Court, and Judge Miller heard the cases. Robert Douglass, whose - arm had been injured by one of the bullets, was stillt suffering from the effects of the wound, but he had no complaint to make against Boxley, for he knew that the latter had shot at Lee. None of the witnesses, had a good word to say for Lee, and his own statement convinced the court of his guilt. He .was given eight months in jail, and Boxley was acquitted. Arthur Davis and Walter Lucas, young colored men, were in the court on a charge of theft, and their trouble was -also the result of a visit to a pool room. This pool room is on Fenton street. and on the night that a coat was stolen the defendants were in there. They were seen to leave the place and zeturn. Then it was that they arranged to steal the coat. Detective Lacy made the arrests and recovered the coat from where it had been disposed of. Judge Miller heard the witnesses tell of the pool room theft, but made no comment on the fact that so much lawbreaking resuits from suclh places. The prisoners were given two months in jail. FIRE IN MARINI'S HALL. 1 Census Doenments Darned and the s Duilding Considerably Damaged. Fire in Marini's Hall, on E street near -9th, early yesterday morning destroyed a large quantity of documents connected with the census of 18,0. and of former decades. The building has been regularly occupied by the' census bureau for years, and last spring, when the Inter-Ocean building, on 9th street, was vacated by the bureau, the dccbments and the clerks left in that building were transferred to Ahe Marini building. The fire broke out in the basement, and the dense smoke, for a time prevented the firemen from locating the flames. The fire was controlled b-fpre it had done any great damage to the contents of the 4 upper part of the buildip . The damage to the building is *stimabed to be about $10,000. It was found that r.othig was destroyed that was of vital importaace to the census. The' most important 4f the old census documents are stored; elsewhere. Car- 4 roll D. Wright, commissioner of the census; George S. Donnell, chief bS the census division of the Interior Department, and W.C. Hunt, head of the popula Son statistics of the census, inspected thy. building yesterday and concluded that the loss to the government was inconsiderable. Some recopying will be necessary, but the census was so nearly completed that' ery little harm was aone. Fire again e out in the building about 0 o'clock erday, and the er.glnes were again called -out. The blaze was soop put out. .'Why Going southt - 4 To the Editor of The Evning Star: Repaying to the query of Henry N. Boernstein, which appeared in -The Evening Star of the 19th, I would like to set his mind at rest as to any apprehensions he might-have of a late spring being portended by the southward flight of a flock of geese. I speak, not from a scientific standpoint, but from experience and observation, as it is a common yearly occurrence in Minnesota to observe flocks of ducks and geese wending toward the south at about this or a little later season of the year. The natural sequence to be derived from this is that the particular flock of ducks or geese retracing their journey was unfortunate in the selecton of their winter quarters. If they had been in gocd, quiet feeding grounds all winter, and had not been disturbed by depredating sportsmen, the chances are that they would have remained there until the season was well advanced; but If their feeding grounds were not of the best, or they had been considerably disturbed, they have a strong desire to seek pastures new, and with the first approach of spring they fly northward to the grain fields. When arriving there they find the lakes frozen over,4 the fields very probably covered over with snow and the atmosphere far below the chilly point. Their only recourse then is to retrace their flights to some country habitable to them. Or. supposing they wended their waynorth during the customary "Janutarythaw." which melts the frozen lakes and warms up the atirosphere, then when the cold blasts from the north change, the condition of affairs they find themseives in a country where the game of "freeze out" Is literally played .upon them, and they are forced to fee- to a warmer climate until the voice of spring is more reliably heard.

A large. number- of the clergy and laity if this .city will go over to New York tonorrow to be present at the -consecralo1 df Rev. Henry Yates Satterlee, D. D., as the first bishop of the new diocese of Washington. The celebrstion will take Mlace at the Calvary Church, 4th avenue Lnd 21st street, of which Dr. Satterlee is he rector, at 10:30 o'clock, on Wednesday, 1he Feast, of the Annunciation of the Virrin Mary. According to the program, those who go Over from' this city will meet at Calvary tarish house, 106 East 224 street, and proeed. in a body, to the church, where spe:ial arrangements are to be made for their iccommodation. Considerably more than iglf of the Episcopal clergy have planned o be present, and there are few Episcopal hurches but will send over a delegation of laymen. Tickets for the clergy have been distribted, through Rev. Dr. L L. Townsend, the ector of the Church of the Incarnation, vhlle Mr. John F. Paret has had charge of he cards of admission for the laity.. Dr. Cownsend is out of the city, and it is imossible to tell the exact nunber of laymen vho v ill be in attendance, owing to the act that several of the rectors have atended personally to securing tickets for heir parishioners, while many have writen directly to New York to the gentlenen in charge of the distribution of cards o laymen in that city. It is expected that here will be a great pressure for admisionand a tremendous crowd in attendance.
