macy Law Is Enforced in the District
Washington's police officers deny

morphine is strictly enforced, and
that if" the drug is sold it comes
from Baltimore through private
parties. The police say they can
not stop this traffic
According to Frank C Hcnrj, president
of the board of pharmacj, the drug
traffic has tx-cn brought to the attcnUon

it was possible a short time ago for
persons addicted to morphine and co
caine to obtain their supplies through
dental stores. It is my belief, however,
that most of the dental houses hac been
innocent in this sale, as they did not
know the law "
Samuel L. Hilton, author of the state
ment that drugs are obtainable in Wash

which he is unable to disclose at this
time, that the traffic in narcotics lp
Washington has been large.
Law Is Knforccd.
That the police arc doing all in their
power to suppress the illegal sale of nar
coUcs is assured by the authorities. The
dental hous arc closelj watched for any
sale of the drug's, and it is beliccd no
sales are made except to persons using

Should Mr Hilton be able to prove his

G,000 Women ATade Homeless;
5.000 Houses Destroyed.
Tokvo, April 9 A great fire raged to
day in the Yoshiwara district of this city,
Tokyo s famous tenderloin Owing to
scarcity of water and high wind the
destruction was -practically completc.
The rums cover four square miles, at
least 5,000 houses have been burned,
fatalities are estimated at 300, with 800
injured, and 6,000 women are homeless.
Although tho houses that gave the dis
trict Its character were palatial in dimen
sion", only wood entered into their con
struction. and the entire area was a big
tinder box awaiting only a spark to set
it blazing Conditions were just right
to-day for a vast calamity The fire
spread so fast many of the women were
trapped in upper stories
The cause of the fire has not been
learned. It started this morning at 11 CO
o'clock, when the district was asleep
Firemen arrived promptly, but could
make no headway against the flames.
Water gave out early in the afternoon,
and as the wind did not subside it be
came hopeless to try to save anything
that fire could reach Several regiments
of troops were then ordered to the scene.
The skies north of the city glowed from
the reflection below when darkness came.
Buildings were still under attack at mid
night. As nothing was spared, the hospitals
which the government maintained for the
care of the district's inhabitants shared
the lot of the pretentious and gaudy
establishments that abounded within this
reservation. They were, as usual, well
filled. Rescue bands helped out .the pa
tients and then returned to carry be
yond the fated area the dead and In
jured victims of tho days.
Scenes at the fire illustrated the per
fect discipline to which the municipality
had trained the district. Tokyo set the
example for other Japanese cities In its
management of the license system for
the vexed social problem. Municipal con
trol was so excellent that despite its
purpose and character, the Yoshiwara
district was as safe as any other. It
could bo visited by tourists prompted

BY HOUSE MINORITY
"Committee on Committees''
Although there is officially no commit
tee on committees on the Republican side
of the House, a rump" organization of
that sort worked all day yesterday in
the offico of Minority Leader Mann at
the Capitol, with tho result that a com
plete list of the Republican committeo
assignments probably will be handed to
Chairman Underwood at the opening of
the session of the House to-day.
Representative Mann, to whom the Re
publican caucus assigned the duty of
naming the minority membership of each
committee, called to his aid former
Speaker Cannon and Representative Ash
cr Hinds. As an unofficial committee on
committees tho trio labored long and
earnestly. It Is reported that such time
as they did not spend In Juggling the
names of their colleagues to make them
fit the committees, they used in working
out a plan of action toward prevailing
on the Democrats to allow a greater Re

resentative Mann at that time also did
much advising, and secured for himself
the good place of chairman of the Inter
state Commerce Committee This year
the combination practically Is the same,
although James Robert Mann is the boss

There was no change reported yester

Collin on the Scene.
Day after day fires continued to break
out In various places. Collins was seen
.ah time, annarcntlv enjoying the
spectacle of the firemen working to keep
the flames from spreading. The police
did everything in their power to catch
Collins in the act, but wero unsuccess
ful until Friday, when he was arrested.
Mrs. Mary Jones, of 311 Douglas court,
was the first person to identify Collins
as the man who had ben seen loafing
in that section of the city She said the
first time she saw him he was In the
clnity of Maury's court southeast.
Collins, she ald, ran out of an allej.
coUIdcd with her. and almost threw her
to the ground She had a good look at
him, and when she heard the engines
responding to an alarm In the alley ad
Joining, she surmised Collins had some
thing to do with It,
On tho night of March 28, a few min
utes after U o'clock, Mrs. Jones' shed
was set on fire. She sajs she ran out
and found Collins standing near the shed.
As soon as she approached he fled, she
said, and she reported his actions to the
police A few hours before he had fired
her shed. Mrs. Jones said, she saw the
"firebug" come from a shed in the rear
of 321 It street northeait. She called to
him and he ran
Mrs M. I,ynch. of 11 Klghth street
southeast, also identified Collins at the
t-Uion houso yesterday as the man
she had seen In her yard at the time
her hcd caught fire. She said he was
in the rear of her residence when the
flames shot up, and as she went to turn
out some chickens, he told her not to
trouble herself, as the engines would
soon bo there. At that time, she told
Capt. miy. she did not connect his pres
ence with the fire, thinking he was some
one who had been attracted by the blaze.
Eaesi Peculiar Match.
According to Capt- Daly. Collins uses
a peculiar match which was recently in
vented In Sweden. It burns much longer
than the ordinary luelfcr or parlor
match, and has a brilliant, bluish flame.
With it a person i-s able to Fet fire to
wood without the aid of paper or rub
bish Collins will be held at tho Ninth pre
cinct station until to-morrow morning,
when he will be called for trial In
tile Police Court- The case Is being held
over until then to get all the details of
the fire, and to collect evidence of Col
lins' mental condition. That he Is Insane
on the Idea or fire is the opinion ad
anced by those who know him best.
The police, howeer. are inclined to
believe that Collins deliberately commits
who Is thirty-olx years old. is
of eccentric character, and Is known to
many persons in the section where he
was raised Since taking to drink and
excessUo cigarette smoking, his friends
say they hae noticed that he seemed
to be of unbalanced mind. He quit
working some time ago and since then
has been living with Ills mother, who is
almost prostrated at her son's position.
