nnd turned just ahead of Ihim. Both
men tried to get out of tho other's way
with tho result that tho wheel of the
machluo struck tho horso on tho sldo
and bounded forward, throwing tho
bicyclist Into tho air. When ho

to It, while tho terrified animal
began a wild stampede down tho

these two aro disabled and unfit for

"I havo fiequcntly, In fact tlmo,
time and again, continued the veteran

also to create a small reserve fund for
others who arc suro to follow. If you
will walk over with me to thoJInssa

pi ess this mntter of pensioning nnd rc

service may be strengthened by now
men in their places. I also recommend,
and have dono so repeatedly year
after year, an increase of tlio force from
ten men to a company to twelve. I
have lepentcdlj pointed out that ten

aud Is getting away from us. and the
ground to get over is entirely too much.
Comparisons show that we make the
fastest time in America, but yet tho

"Not a word of complaint against

ears In connection with tho late calam

Chief Pan Is. while a slight shade of
annoyance clouded his fnco, "but a

his Intimate knowlcdgo of tho work
ings of tho shop acquired in thnt time,
wrote a defense of its methods, which
was printed In this paper on Sundny.
Mr. Trent showed that the walls of the
dressing-room were wooden nnd not
duck, nnd thnt the blind woman was
stringing sacks and hnd given up
mending them. Ho also proved that,
as tho room Jn whtch tho women
woiked was ninety feet long, sixty feet
wido and eighteen feet high, there
could be no dust or dirt and thnt every
thing was dona to make it pleasant and
comfortable for all.
Ho failed to deny that women had
frequently swooned over their work;
that tho sacks camo covered with all
sorts of filth; thnt the mud dropned off
iu cakes; that there wero nearly two
score holes in the sacks at times; tiinl
one sack was in such a bad condition
that when it was showed to Captain
Cullen, nfter it was mended, thnt gen
tleman saldt "I didn't think it could bo
done." Thero were various other de
tails Mr. Ticnl failed to mention, but
he made out as good n case as was pos
sible. He has been promoted. lie is
now an Inspector of sacks. Faithful
work brings quick reward.
Tho condition of nffnirs in the repair
shop have been made somewhat easier
during tho past week. The room has
been swept clean daily, sprinkled nnd
dusted. But the dlit nnd dust fiom
the sacks remain.
The statement prepared by the man
agement of the shop, stating thnt tho ar
ticles published in The Ciutic were
false, has been sent to the Poslofllcc
Department. The women were asked
to sign and there were few who had the
ueive to refuse. It was merely a cor
roboration of what Captain Cullen and
Colonel Whitfield hnd declared In print,
and it would have been discouitcous, to
say the least, to havo refused to confirm
Mr. Ticnt's demands for affidavits
will be satisfied. Thoy will appear in
due time. At present the women arc
afraid almost to say that their souls are
their own for tear of being described ns
"meddlers" nnd "fnult-findurs," nnd,
of course, "persons prejudicial to the
good of the scivice." Just as soon as
protection can be assuied sworn state
ments will bu ready. The Ciutic has
gone into this matter to discover the
truth, no matter who may be hurt.

Two Hundred Saloons Doing lliisluess

Tho delay of tho Commissioners in
disposing of applications for liquor
licenses Is causing the police nud tho
courts a great deal of trouble, aud there
nro uow in the city nearly 200 saloons
doing business without a license.
It begins to look ns if some
of these saloons will continue to
do business tho entire year without
a license. It has been done before, and
such a caso was in tlio Police Court this
morning. Nicholas Lochbcolcr was
charged with keeping nn unlicensed
bar, and Mr. Joseph Shillington, his
counsel, declared that ho was not in
tho least molested by tho pollco during
thnt time and was not onco arrested.
The license is still pending. So for
over fifteen months this saloon has been
selling liquor without n license nnd tho
pi oprietor continues to ba investigated,
"It has taken tho Commissioners fif
teen months to look after tho man's re

knows how much longer they will be.
What are we to do under the circum

Northeast Washington hns a sensa
tion which, in ninny respects, resembles
lho Bello Brown rhystcry, which was
fo long the talk of tho city and so com
pletely bnlllcd the detectives. Nearly
two weeks ago Miss Ada Mockabce, n
young woman who lived with her
parents nt 004 K street northeast, dls
appealed from her home, and all the
cilorts of her relatives to discot or her
whereabouts havo failed,
William Mockabce, the father of the
missing gill, Is an cx-member of lho
AVashlngton pollco force, and now
works at his Irade ns n carpenter. He,
with his wlfo nnd daughter, occupied
a coinfortnblo little home nt the above
mentioned nddress. After supper on
Iho evening of Jnnunry 23, Ada left
tho house, saying Hint she was going
out for n walk and would be lu again
shortly. Since then neither of her
parents have set eyes upon her.
NO ATTKMPT TO FIND HUH.
Slrango to say neither of them seem
to hnvc made any great effort to find
hor for somo tlmo nfter her disappear
ance, nnd the matter has not been ro-
poited to the police. The parents seem
to have been of lho opinion that tho
girl had taken a notion to stay away for
n while owing to temporary unpleasant
domestic relations, caused by tlio fact
that her father had been drinking
heavily, and that she would return
home afler a short sojourn with friends.
Thoroughly nlarmcd, however, nt her
prolonged absence, they lccontly insti
tuted inquiries at the houses of nil tho
friends where they thought the girl
might have sought an asylum, and ills
covered that she had not been at any of
them. She took with her from her
home none of her personal effects be
yond tho clothes she wore, nnd, so far
as Is known, had no money in her pos
session. A Critic reporter called on Mr.
Mockabeo at his house, but that gen
tleman, whllo admitting that his daugh
ter had disappeared and that lie did not
know her whereabouts, positively re
fused to say anything further about tho
matter. Some of the neighbors, how
ever, pioyed more communicative.
Among them Ada Mockabce's strangu
dNappcnianco has been a prominent
topic of conversation for ten days past,
and the parents are severely censured
by I hem for not sooner inking steps to
ascertain what had becomo of her.
SHC HAD A 1YC.VU.
The prevailing opinion nmoug them
was that there is a man in the case, and
that the girl had eloped. For somo
time past it has been whlspcicd about
the neighborhood in which she lived
thnt Ada had a "beau," and that he
didn't cotno to tho house to sco her. but
that the pair met frequently clscwbeie.
Another theory advanced Is that of
suicide. Ada, it seems, is a girl with u
geutle disposition and refined tastes and
lond of poetry, one of her fnvoritu
books bcinc Ella Wheeler Wilcov's
"Poems of Passion," a well-thumbed
copy of which, with her name written
on the title page, lay on n table in this
neat Utile pallor of the Mockabeo
house when the lcpoi ter called. To it
girl of this character her homo life
must at times have been very unpleas
ant. Her father, it seems, is In the habit
of going on sprees, and while under lho
influence of liquor is very quarrel
some, so much bo that his" wlfo lias
sometimes been obliged to leave the
house for a time. Somo of tho neigh
bors, knowing' that Mockabce had been
drinking about the time Ada left home,
arc of opinion that this had so picycd
upon her mind ns to cause her to com
mit suicide. Some boys, however, le-
Eorted that a few days nfter she lert
omothcy met Ada one evening on
Judiciary Square walking with a black
whlskcred young man. This would
seem to lend color to the elopement
qUAUUELS IX THTJ FAMILY.
When tho leporter called at tho
Mockabce house the mother of the miss
ing girl wns absent, and ho learned
fiom one ot the neighbors that she had
had a quarrel with her husband on Sat
urday, which had resulted in her oncu
more leaving tho house. She left be
hind her an infant child, which was
cared for over Sundny by a kind-hearted
neighbor, who, ou the following day.
found that Mrs. Mockabeo was stopping
with a Mrs. King on II street, and sent
tho child to her. The reporter called
at Mrs. King s shortly niter uis unsatis
factory interview with Mr. Mockabeo,
but learned that her guest hnd just left
for home. Retracing his steps hu
found Mrs. Mockabeo seated lu
her dining-room apparently on thu
best of tcims with her husband,
who, however, refused to allow her to
tall; to the reporter. As the latter was
leaving ho relented sufficiently to hint
that he had received a clue that his
daughter was in Baltimore, and that he
would leave for that city at onco.
"Come In this evening," he added,
"and perhaps I may havo some news
The missing ghl is about IS years
