nude about equal averages, so tar aa the
scholastic test Is concerned and Mr. Dll
lard gut the benefit of tha first certifica
tion merely on account of tha result of the
examiner's Investigation, which showed
that he would be satisfactory to more
I patrons than would Allgood. taction 8 of
l the regulations gives tha patrona ample
I opportunity to select their man. Inasmuch
' aa the applicant must be a person who has
a good reputation in the community. Pro
testa from patrons In any case are always
considered and Investigated by the central
board of examiners. When no protests ara
received It Is of course understood that the
applicants are aatiefuctory to the patrons
of the route.
For rural route No. 2. which starts at
Oailatln, Tenn., William 11. Franklin re
ceived the highest rating. Franklin also
Is a colored man, and there never has been
anv comnlaint whatever aji to hla arcenta-
lillity to the patrons of his route. Franklin
Im a Spanish war veteran, with an excellent
record, aa shown by the copy of his dis
charge on file with his papers. In his case
the examiner said that in his opinion no
one could find fault with him, and the
postmaster stated that he was fully com
petent. In the case of Allgood, the examination
and Investigation were made by a special
agent, whoxe home Is In Tennessee and
who Is familiar with the conditions there.
The agent states that while he gave the
preference to Dlllard In his report, he
thought Allgood would make a very satis
factory man In case Dlllard should not ac
cept the appointment. The examination for
these routes was made as early as May ltt,
1902. No protests have been received In the
cases either of Franklin or of Allgood.

Honor la a; Doit Shepherd.
On Monday last Washington honored the
iremory of the late Alexander R. Shepherd,
the regenerator of the national capital, by
following hla remains, which were brought
from Mexico, to their last resting place in
the beautiful cemetery known as Rock
Creek. Already a fund has been started
to erect a substantial memorial to the man
who twenty-five years ago overturned all
precedent, took the reins in hla own hands,
and made Washington what It waa In
tended to be, the moat beautiful city In the
wofld. To Alexander R. Bhepherd more
than all other men combined Washington
of today owes Ita existence, notwithstand
ing that In his life time he waa pilloried
as an odious political boas, It la only fit
ting that hla work should be suitably hon
ored. I Out there are two other men, private
Vltlzons, who are doing much individually
lYr tha capital of the nation.. One of these
Is Joseph E. Wlllard, at present the lieu
tenant governor of Virginia. Up to elk or
seven years ago Mr. Wlllard waa compara
tively unknown in Washington. He was
living tha Ufa of a country gentleman In his
beautiful place In Fairfax county, Virginia,
which was the home of hla mother. Hla
tether was one of the wealthiest real estate
'owners In this city, who allowed his hold
Vngs to remain unimproved year after year.
(When he died the son Inherited his prop
Jtty and lost no time In improving It. He
first acquired the half Interest In Wlllard'a
hotel owned by his uncle, and through his
efforts a trust company was formed which
promptly erected one of the handsomest
and most substantial bualness buildings on
on portion of tha property. Next he built
a fine office building on one of the sight-li-Mit
corners of P street, on a lot which
had been an eyesore to the neighborhood
for twenty years or more. Then he fur
nished and Improved all the minor build
ings which he Inherited from hla father.

has adopted the reverse policy, and pros
perous business Is conducted todny In stores
and offices which for decades hsd no occu
pant. But the greatest of Mr. Wlllard s
Improvements consisted In tearing down tha
historic Wlllard's hotel, which sheltered
during Its days statesmen and soldiers by
the hundreds. Upon half the site there
was first erected a modern, fireproof, up-to-date
hotel, ten stories high, which has
been filled with guests from the day It was
opened, and now the remaining portion of
the site Is being adorned with an additional
structure which, when completed, as It will
be within a very few months, will give
Washington what It has never had before,
an absolutely first-class hotel. Governor
Wlllard Is also Interested In a company
which proposes to erect a new Sl.ono.ono
hotel In the vicinity of the union depot
soon to be erected within a few blocks of
What Tom Walsh Is Reins;.
The other benefactor Is Thomas P.
Walsh, a Colorado millionaire, who brought
his wealth to Washington some years ago
and haa been spending It In beautifying the
city ever since he came. Mr. Walsh i

dences In the fashionable northwestern
section. Today he Is pushing to rapid com
pletion a fireproof office building within n
Work of the treasury and quite recently
he has acquired by purchase title to an
other old hotel site with the property ad
Joining, which, as soon as the lease ex
pires, he proposes to Improve by erecting
thereon still another up-to-date hotel with
all the conveniences, but which will be lew
expensive for visitors than the Wlllard.
In other words, Mr. Walsh saw an oppor
tunity to give the traveling public the very
latest In the way of hotel facllltlee at me
dium prices, and within the next five yea-s
Washington will In consequence be pro
vided with better accommodations In this
direction than any city of Its slxe In the

hoped thst It will be very many years
before the cltlsens of Washington will be
called upon to pay tribute to the memory
of either of them. But there are no private
cltlsens In the national capital today who
are more entitled to the praise of their

The Indications are that the new Chinese

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. May 10. (Special.) These are
days when the gentle xephyrs carry over
the backyard fence extracta of the ruffled
tempers of the gardener and the chicken
raiser. Daya when the common law right
of a chicken to scratch In a neighbor's
garden is disputed by the neighbor. The
war Is on In Lincoln and already the courts
have been called upon to decide between
the man scratcher and the chicken
For many daya Allen C. Reddish, who,
notwithstanding his name, Is a chicken
fancier rather than a gardener, and Ander
son Homer who is the reverse, have each
tried in hla own line of work to scratch
out a living. Mr. Reddish Is. or rather was.
tho possessor of a yellow leg rooster, the
head and brains of a large following. This
rooster's proper scratching ground Is about
the Reddish garden. But Mr. Rooster to
get for his following the best In the land,
left the premises set apart for him and
at the head of the family slowly mean
dered down to the home of Mr. Bomer.
There young radishes, that were entirely
unlike the young Reddishes, he knew wero
Just sprouting and so were many other
little delicacies. And Mr. Rooster began
to scratch and cluck and chuckle. Mr.
Homer came home about that time and
scratched around for ' rocks. He found
them and Mr. Rooster did a hot foot Into
the bam of Mr. Bomer. The owner alao
went In the barn and how It happened no
one was able to toll the court, but tn a
very short time Mr. Bomer came forth
with Mr. Rooster hanging limp and life
less In his hand. Very tenderly and
quietly he, carried Mr. Rooafer to the Red
dish home and with a little twist of the
wrist deposited all that was left of him on
the porch, where Mr. Reddish found him
some time later.
After due deliberation Reddish had Bomer
arrested for malicious destruction of prop
erty and the case was tried before Judge
Cosgrove yesterday afternoon. The Judge
decided after listening to much evidence
that it was not proven that Bomer killed
the rooster even though he chaaed him In
the btarn and carried him out. Conse
quently the defendant was discharged.

The Eagles carnival to be held here May

preparation Is being made. The manage
ment laid great stress on the fact that a
couple would be married before the eager
gaze of the assembled multitude, when the
events were first made public. This pub
licity so worked on the bride that ehe
balked when It came to signing up the con
tract, and the groom refused to take unto
himself another girl. Again, however, the
carnival management went Industriously to
work and as a consequence letters of ac
ceptance are being received by the score
snd the marriage will surely take place.
Many presents are to be given the couple
and they will be placed on exhibition in a
