Washington, January 19 Members of Congress are laughing heartily to-day over a funny mishap that befell Representative J. Thomas Heflin, of Alabama, in his journey to Washington yesterday. Heflin telegraphed from his home, at Lafayette, Ala., for a sleeping berth and was notified that lower No. 2 had been assigned to him. When the train arrived, Mr. Heflin was surprised that no berth on any sleeper was to be had and that none had been reserved for him. He produced bis telegraphic notice, but it did no good. Inquiry as to the occupant of lower No. 2 brought out the startling tact that it was none other than Booker T. Washington, the colored head of the Tuskegee Institution. Heflin sat up half' the night and finally crawled into an upper berth, while Washington slept peacefully in lower No. 2. The humor of' this Incident is emphasized because of the sensational speech Heflin made after Booker T. Washington had been dining at the White House. Heflin has pronounced views on the negro question, and in public speech he intimated that it would have been a good thing If some one had dropped a bomb under the White House table while, the President and Washington were eating.

Pugilists Wear Skin Gloves Wound With Bicycle Tire, Under the 4-Oz. Ones, It Is Asserted. Johnnie Reagan and a considerable contingent of his Pelican Athletic Club, at Third avenue and Sixty-fifth street, were marched off to the Fourth avenue police station by Captain Farrett and his detectives. Hotter and Mathews, last night, charged with violating the Horton law. Long before any other club dared to put on the three rounds bouts, Reagan waa running them in the Pelican amphitheater, to try out the bearing of the Horton law as it related to athletic clubs. Ho had storms to weather from police centers. Half a dozen times he and his club were taken in by the police. Johnnie simply smiled and pursued the game as if arrests were simply a meana to advertise the sport. Three cases were piled on top of ono another in the Butler street court at one time. It made no difference. Every ThurBday night the cars lead ing to Sixty-fifth street and Third avenue' were well filled with lovers of the ring from all over the greater city. The Pelican pavilion will hold fifteen hundred persons, but it was never large enough to accommodate the crowd. The cases hung fire in Butler street for several months and were finally decided in Reagan's favor. It. had not been shown that ticketgi' were actually sold to the public by the club. To be sure, men were known to sell tickets, or it was alleged they were, on the street a block or so from the club house. Those persons could not be connected, however, with the club management, and the text of the decision was that a club might pull off the bout for the entertainment of itself. , , It was learned, in police uarters to-day, that the arrest made last night was probably inspired by a communication from T. DeQuincy Tulliy. of the Law and qOrder Society. jTully has been lying fallow for some time. Anxious to get in his work that the society might not be placed among the hasbeens, he wrote to police head-uarters complaining that the Horton law was being violated by qReagan. He selected the manager of the Pelican Alhletic Club for the oDvious reason that It is responsible for the general resumption of boxing In all the clubs of the city. It Is said that as a result of the decision in his case bouts are being pulled off every week In seventy-five .flubs in Greater New York. Reagan's case came into the Butler Btreet court to-day. Eight men were arraigned. The number included George Kampe and Tony Costa, the fighters; Joe Mogk. aciSised of stealing tickets on the street; John Bruce and John Gamble, seconds; John Mc-Avoy, referee, and Robert Miller, who took the tickets. Tully was interviewed as to his motives in making complaint against the bouts in view of the recent decision. He said that the bouts were particularly brulal. An old-time boxer, who is up to all. tricks of the game, a day or two tgo said that the sport would bo spoiled by the manner In which it is conducted. He declared that acting as second a few nights ago. he was amazed to see the lighters don hard leather gloves, wind bicycle adhesive tape about them, and put the four-ounce boxing gloves over that background. "Such bandaging makes s man's hand a veritable blackjack, or battering ram. It will be matter of great surprise to me if some boy is not killed," said the manre-ferred to. In confirmation of this old fighter's prediction, "Kid" Ouck, an 18-year-old boy, was killed In a boxing contest In Harlem last night. The fighter above referred to said that most of the boys who went Into the ring were in poor condition and could not stand the lambasting of a hand protected In the manner described by him. Such was the case with "Kid" Guck. Tully referred to the killing of Guck and pointed to the fact that while the dead fighter's body was still In the pavilion the botitg still went on. Magistrate Steers put the case over till January 26 for examination. Manager Johnny Reagan, of the Pelican Club, gave the following statement to the Eagle to-day: "I see no reason why the police should Interfere with our exhibitions. The Pelican Club is a regularly organised club and is conducted on club principles. Beside, the police have broken Into our programmes three times previous to this and have not been able to And anything on which to base charges against us. The programme was not Interfered with and there were no spectators arrested. In fact, few of them knew of the arrests until after the show was over." APPELLATE COURT DECISIONS.

SLEUTH lUDE BETS First Broke Bread with Alleged Gamblers and Got a Line on Their Profession. RAID BY CROSS FOLLOWED. Sensational Drop In on Poolroom, Wedged Between Discreet Money-Making Offices. Hocovcring from the effects of hardships and exposure, afloat and on land, the captain, mate and ono sailor of a Russian three-master are in St. John's Hospital, having escaped death by shipwreck in a manner without parallel In the annals of the sea. When the 248-ton schooner Knus, hailing from Riga, lifted her forefoot on a sunken rock ledge off the southern coast of Cuba on the night of December 28, Captain Tenia Kras- tln, Leon Llchitlvsky, the solitary passon-ger, and Jacob Sturit, one of tbc six seamen who composed the crew, leaped Into the lifeboat which Iho captain ordered lowered as soon as the vessel struck. Before the other sailors could follow suit the davit tackle broke and the boat was swept away Into the darkness of the niglht. Tossed by angry waves and lashed by a terrific gale, the dory drifted about for thirty-six hours before the caplain could find a place to beach her. Scarcely had he and his two companions stepped ashore when they were amazed to see Mate Peter Pride emerge from a pearby thicket. Pride pointed to the top of a cliff where, he said, the rest of the crew was gathered, and told the captain that the six men left on the Kaus when the dory disappeared had been literally catapulted ashore from the peak of the mizzenmast. Thirty miles Inland the survlvers tramped through forest and marsh until, after a nine days Journey they reached Guantanamo. There the railroad officials sent them to Havana where the Russian consul arranged for tho passsge of six of them to this city on the Morro Castle. They arrived Wednesday evening and are now under the care of the Russian consul general. Tho other three seamen, being negroei, wero left In Cuba. Before going to the hospital, tne caplain. mate, Sturit and two tailors. Known s Mlkei Vlett and Kur Bomber, were aenl to the Scandinavian Sailors Temperance Home, at 172 Carroll street, where they told the following story of the shipwreck and marvelous escape to thu olher guests: 'We sslled from rort au Mouie. in me Island of Guadeloupe, on December 17. bound for Laguna de Termenos.

Half an hour later I saw a rocky snore looming up dead ahead, over our starboard how. 'Land dead aneau, I snouted aown tne companion way to the captain, who tumbled on deck In a hurry. We tried to come about, but the schooner refused lo mind her helm. The next Instant her bow rose high In the air on a gigantic wave and dropped her forefoot on a sunken rock.

Taylor's automobile touring car In tho West Drive In Central Purk, Man hattan, opposite Ninetieth Btreet, early this morning. The driver of the cab, Joseph Carpenter, 26 years old, living In Ninth ave nue, was tho worst hurt, suffering contu sions of hla hips and legs when he was thrown from bis neat by the crash. The cab was overturned In the collision and the horse knocked completely out of Its harnees. Carpenter was thrown to the sldo of the drive and stunned.

Cross and bis staff from local police headquarters made an effective if somewhat noisy raid yesterday on tho rooms of the National Sporting Information Company, Nos. 38, 39 and 40, on the fourth Boor of the Frauklln Building, on Kemscn street, a structure devoted to the amiable practice ot law in a dignified way and to various other discreet money-making industries. The news that the rooms ludlcated wera conducted as a poolroom came as a shock to many of the tenants, snd they declared that it was a good thing to clear out the gamblers. All of the preparations for taking possession were made by the police in this Instance with much secrocy. Deputy Police Commissioner O'Keeffo knew what was about to happon and had been posted concerning the steps thnt tho luspoctor was taking to catch the gamblers. Arthur B. Ennis, one of the inspector's devil bicycle officers, was the chosen agont to collect the information. He Is a big man, and wise to methods of tho poolroom. But craft was needed to get at the insido and to secure the right to lose monoy In the place and it took Ennis some time to get a proper introduction. He watched the habitues ot the office and found that they wero in the habit o eating at a local beaunry not far from tho Borough Hall. Ennis began eflling In this place. Ho was patient and worked his way, after many days, to tho tabic whore tho gamblers usually sat. Once or twice ho found a place at tho same table and he was exceedingly polite to the men who were breaking brend with him. And he stuffed himself with baked beans and delirious coffee and hnin and, and proved lo Iho others that ho was a lolly fellow if he was willing to eat In that. way. He occasionally, In a furtive way, studied the columns of a nowsnaper which devotes much of its space to tho doings on the race tracks and ho was wont to sit "doping" out winners. The general conversation led among the sports to tho Joys ot racing snd finally Ennis was taken Into the company as a boon companion. Ho plnyed pokor with some or me men ono night at Halsey street and Broadway, nnd he was given tho distinction ot an Introduction to the ninn who was formerly street car conductor, but wno nas roilea un a wad bv successiui ueis un uir uw;. And finally ho was Introduced lo Ihe people who rnn tho National Sporting Inform al on concern in tne rransun iiuiiumk. n wort intrniluced as a goon minx, ami un proved It my making bets that were not the bets of a piker.

Not on your life! exclaimed Knnls with scorn, and Mr. McAlcer seemed to be sat lulled. Ennis got chummy with tho doorkeeper, little Martin Joyce, of Hicks street, and ndeed wtlh all the men who seemed to bo running tho bureau. He was not asked to become a member of the concern, although ho saw on the walls framed "certificates of membership. But he spent his good money In the company's rooms, betting on selections ho made from the fields on the track at the two racing grounds at New Orleans.
