POLICE PUT BAN
ON NAUGHTY SONGS
First Arrest in Campaign
Naughty, naughty songs are to be
stopped at Washington theaters. The
crusade which the police of the First
prcunct has been conducting for the last
week bore fruit last night when Sergt
John Catts arrested James Harkins for
tinging an immoral song
Harkins told the police at the First
precinct that the audience at a local
plaj house demanded splcj songs, and
that he was only giving them what
they des'red. The police thought other
wise, and Harkins left $25 with the desk
sergeant as a side bet that he was
right. The judge in the Police Court
this morning will decide which is right
For weeks the police have been re
ceiving complaints that tome of the Sun
day night concerts were anything but
sacred, and Sergt. Catts was detained
to inestigatc. He listened to Harkins
fjr about five minutes and decided that
the "srice ' he injected into his songs
was not in keeping with the Sabbath or
any other day in Washington, and ac
cordingly took him to the station house,
where Lieut. Sprinkle made Harkins put
up $23 as colla'eral
Sergt. Catts said last night that the
arrest of Harkins was but the beginning
of the crusade against suggestive sonqs
in the moing-picture theaters and bur
' The majority of the mo ing-plcture
houses do not tolerate these so-called

TO INVADE THIS CITY
Hundreds ot Democrats Will Arrive in Washington
This Week to Present Claims.
Not since Grover Cleveland assumed
the Presidency for the second time, back
ir ISO, have there been so many Demo
crats in the Capital of the nation, in
quest of office.
A host of hopeful Democrats have been
Invading Washington far several days in
anticipation of the 'organization of the
new Democratic House, a week from to
day, when 500 Republican employes, who
draw salaries aggregating $750,000 an
nually, wilf be turned out upon the world.

early last week that business was In

great preparations for the horde of

Your friends will come to jour humble cot, and sit on the porch
with you, and talk of the tariff until they're hot, and help ou to
smoke and chew. But when you arc needing a helping hand to carry
a trunk up stairs, cur friends will scatter to beat the band, each
bent on his own affairs. Your neighbors will lean on the back
yard fence, and help you to roast the law, and shoot fiery arrows
of eloquence at effigies made of straw. Your friends are thoughful
and kindly men, the salt of this blooming land; but when ou are
trying to catch a hen, there's no one to lend a hand. Your friends
will help you to dance and sing, and eat up your cake and pie, and
they'll give advice, and perhaps thev '11 bring some flowers to ou
when jou die. That man should cherish and love his friends the law
of this life demands; but he who wins in this world depends alone
on his own two hands.

In one case a woman, whose frantic

Identified liy Trinkets.
In many cases Identification could only
be made by trinkets found on the bodies,
or the clothing. A case like this was
presented when Joseph Miale entered
the covered pier.
"I am looking for my sister, Bettina,"
he told Capt. O'Connor, biting his lips
to suppress his grief that showed in his
white, set features Three times the
young man went past the coffins gazing
at the bodies Intently, but finally he
shook his head despairingly and said:
"She's not here."
Capt. O'Connor allowed him to remain
in the place for some time until young
Miale pointed to one of -the bodies, say
ing that his sister had been about that
height, Capt. O'Connor lifted one of
the blackened arms, and on a finger he
saw a little gold ring The ring was
removed and the dirt and grime brushed
off. Miale looked at it for a moment
and then fell back with his hand pressed
to his forehead
"That is her ring," he gasped and was

and when carried to a chair, moaned that
the body was that of his wife Theresa.
He said that he had walked the streets
all night, visiting homes of friends In
a search for his" wife, refusing to believe
that she had perished in the fire. They
had planned to attend the theater on
Saturday night, he said.
The identification of the body of Joseph
Wilson, twenty -one years old, was the
subject of a most pathetic scene.
Recognised by Fiancee.
" The remains were recognized by his
fiancee. Miss Rose Solomon, nineteen
years old, who. 'visited the temporary
morgue with her mother. The girl ar
rived there with hair disheveled and eyes
streaming tears, but in spite of her woe
begone appearance, it could be seen that
she was of unusual beauty.
When the girl and her mother came to
the foot of coffin No. 94. the young woman-stopped
"I think this is him."
"How do you know?" asked her
mother, as the body was burned so that
It was nothing more than a blackened
and charred mass.
"t-1 Just feel It," said the girl.
She moved on and looked at all the
other bodies, but came back again to

nurses approached them. The girl told
th'e'nurse of her belief, and a gold'watch

As soon as a body is identified the top
board of the coffin is nailed on and it Is
placed to one side. The relative who has
made the identification is then given a
yellow card and sent to an office on the
street end of the pier, where Coroner's
Physician Weston takes down the pedi
gree and description of the victim.
After this, the main morgue Is visited
by the person claiming the body and a
permit for Its removal is issued. This
is intended to be given to the undertaker
hired by the family for the funeral ar
rangements and the body may then be
removed by him.

Coroner Holtzhauser, who gave it as
his opinion that the work, of Identification

weeks Several of Uie bodies, he believes,
will never be identified, as they are
burned beyond recognition.

The prosecutor visited the building
again to-day after having spent practi
cally the entire night upon the scene.
He was eager to inspect the Iron shut
