STARTLING STATE OF THINGS
Little More Than Three Hundred Meu
to Watch Over tho District What
th Officials Say About tbo Inade
quacy of the Force Conuress Matt
Gle More Bluecoats.
The review of cases where robberies have
been reported and arrests not made in The
Evening Times Thursday hasattracled gen
eral attention to the matter, and in spite
of some unimportant inaccuracies, shows
very effectively from practical experience
thai a large addition to the police force is
needed. .. .
It is In c first attempt made by a statement
of results to Impress upon the people of
Washington the fact that the present force
is insufficient, robberies occur and robbers
are ci.caplng.Ior lack of men to watch und
'Commissioner Ross said tills morning
he had noticed the work The Times has un
dertaken, and it is line with a vigorous
effort to bo made by the Commissioners
before Congress .to secure an adequate
The Commissioners are occupied a part
of their time now preparing to mako their
report to the President. There are very
many important matters pressing upon
their attention, and It is very difficult
for them Jo determine what legislation
should be most urgently pressed upon Con
gress. One feature of Interest Is an Increase of
the police force. In their last report they
stated that tlio numbers of police had nut
at all kept paco with the development of
the suburbs, now covering nearly the entire
area of the District, requires a larger ex
pansion of the force than the growth In
population would Indicate.
GREAT AREA OP WASHINGTON.
They say it should be remembered that
this municipality has a greater urea than
Baltimore or St. Louis, both of which has
nearly double the police force, while Chi
cago, New York, Philadelphia, Boston,
Brooklyn and Baltimore have all a larger
force in proportion to population.
It Is urged In addition that the necessary
numbers of conditions and public assem
blies here make proportionately greater
demands uiwn Washington police.
Upon this plea, ten new men were added
to the existing force. Considering the
plea that other places have approximately
double the lorce In proportion to the area
to be coered, the addition to the number
of pol'-nien amounted to very little. t
It would, upon the Commissioners' show
ing, require at least 200 men to bring the
city under police care proportionate to
that exercised in other cities, and that, too,
notwithstanding the unusual efficiency of
the Washington force.
Ma J. Moore, In his report this year, asks
and argues for an Increase of 125.
The reason stated nbove, as given In last
year's report Commissioner Ross enume
rated again today and added that the in
crease or rapid-transit lines had occasioned
another heavy demand upon the strength
of the police. The men arc needed to see
that regulations as to speed, erodings and
other details for the protection of life and
property are enforced.
The suggestions as to the necessity of
an increase in the numbers of the Metro
politan police force have met with general
favor among the officials both of the
police denarbnent and the city government
generally. The most conclusive evidence
of the inadequacy of the present force in
polut of numbers Is shown by the immense
number of crimes that go unpunished in all
sections of the city.
The full force at present. Including lieu
tenants and sergeants, numbers 470 men,
special details, leaves of absence and sus
pensions have reduced it to an effective
force of 3GG. Of this number one-halt are
on duty at night and one-fourth on duty
in the datlme, making 183 men the largest
number doing patrol duty at any one time
in a territory coering seventy square
In each of the nine precincts in the city
the number of men on dnty is il hided,
making two platoons. Each platoon Is
divided Into two sections. At night one
full platoon docs patrol duty, while one
section is kept on reserve, and In the day
time the precinct is patroled by a single
section, with a section on recerve.
CHANGING THE PLATOONS.
The whole platoon goes on duty at C
o'clock at night, with one section of the
other platoon on reserve" In the station
bouse and t herd herscctlon off. At 12 o'clock
the sect ion platoon that has done duty since
6 o'clock goes In, and Its place Is taken li
the second platoon. At G in the morning
the section on reserve goes on duty un
til 8, when it is relieved by the other sec
tion, a section from the second platoon
going on reserve. At 1 o'clock the section
on duty is relieved by the reserve, and at

There is no surer Indication of a police
force Inadequate to the needs of a city
than an Immense number of crimes, great
and small, that are daily reported to the
precincts and police headquarters and go
unpunished because there are not enough
men to look after them.
Washington is far behind most other cities
in this respect, as The Times win under
take most completely to show from day to
day until Congress provides the relief desired.

the thieves went through blm. They se

This Is the banner day of the year to'
devotees of the crldlrdn. On the battle
fields at New Vork and Boston will be de
cided the two big fogtball games of the
year. The youth with the chrysanthemum
locks who springs up with mushroom
growth as the summer' days shorten
and the autumn leaves -begin to fall has
worked himself up to the highest pitch
of excitement by this Um Those of them
who do not take the trip to either one of
the big games will eagerly grasp- every bit
of news as it comes flashing over the wires.
While Washington Is 'hot. as much uf a
football town as it mlgftt be, there is
nevertheless a su(flcieni.fn!?dwtog ofjthe,
college game to make things-Verj-jlDter-esdog.
There has been'lat little specula
tion among local sportlngly-nutined enthu
siasts as the Yale-Princeton game Is
thought to be so close" that few care to
wager on it, and tbtf Pennsylvania-Harvard
contest Is looked upon In the nature
or a walkover for the Quaker City lads.
Odds are quoted on the renueylvanla
Harvard match at 10 to 4, with Pennsyl
vania the favorite. Considering the fact
that the crimson warrlurs arc upon their
own stamping ground, tbe.e odds wllllikcly
greally decrease, and It is probable that
even money may be given by Harvard
sympathizers berore the game Is played.
Vale Is favorite at 5 to i. These odds will
likely Increase, and 10 to7 or better may be
later gotten. No record of large sums of
money being placed is at hand.
YALE'S STHENUTH UNCEItTALV.
The opinions uwn which this money has
been placed are baied upon the preliminary
showing of the lour usnu. This in reality
tells nothing. Absolutely no idea can be
formed of what Yale can or cannot do.
Pennsylvania's record Is but little more in
structive. The conditions enter so largely into the
match that scores tell nothing. By scores
Harvard was an easy victor over Prince
ton, yet was beaten, and the result of both
games today arc Just a-s,uncertain. Both
teams In each match are confident, and one
In each will be disappointed.
These games today will decide the ques
tion in tuc minds of many devotees of foot
ball as to which Is the champion team of
America, slucc, owing to the misunder
standing between Pcmisi hrania and Prince
ton, Yale and Harvard and Pennsylvania
and Yale, they do not all meet each otber,
so that the matter could be more definitely
If Pennsjlvanla beats Harvard the lat
ter is either third or foiirth best, all de
pending on whether Princeton defeats
Yale and by what score. If Yale defeats
Princeton and Pennsylvania wins from
Harvard the question remains in the same
unsatisfactory and unsettled condition it
was left in last year, and the public will
have to judge by-comparing scores of the
games played by the two against the same
teams which last season showed to Penn
sylvania's advantage'This year Pennsyl
vania bas'only played two teams that have
met Yakvvi.: Brown University and Cres
cent A . C, and the comparison of the scores
made lu both Is -all Inibe'Quakers' favor.
If Princeton defeats Yale, then the ques
tion of supremacy lies befween the Tigers
and the Quakers, providedof course, Penn
sylvania wins at Boston. , latitat event, re
sort muBt.agaln be made (o what the foot

It will thus be seen how much, 1n a foot

two games today and wby there is such
universal Interest being manifested in
them. Whatever the result may be, both

that there was no irregularity. He said
that the statements offered by the friends
of the deceased to prove an unnatural death
were not sufficient, and he did hot think
an autopsy necessary.
Charles P. Murphy and Mrs. narngan,
friends uf the deceased, called the matter to
the attention of Inspector HoIIlnbergcr,
upon the coroner's refusal to interfere, and
he at once began an investigation,. nhlch
resulted in the order to exhume the body.

strong woman, and had bicn complaining
for several days previous to her death,
but he did not suppose there was anything
serious the matter with her.
He was sent for by her Sunday morning,
and lie found that she was suffering from
a congestive chill. She aKo had a slight
attack of nausea and vomiting, but he did
not think her condition dangerous,, and
after prescribing for her went home.
About a o'clock that evening she was again

here is tbat this long-standing dispute will

only a question of .weeks before the roar of
cannon and clash of arms Is beard again in
the South American republic; and the Brit

the assertion of thiir territorial rights.
Within the past few days there has been a
wonderful change effected la the talk and
temperament of the people.
Instead of the frequent expressions of dis
gust and dissatisfaction with the masterly
Inactivity of the imperial authorities, the
people speak hopefully of a speedy settle
ment of a dispute which has seriously re
tarded the development of the mineral re
sources of the colony.
They point to the fact that while there
are vast stretihes of territory with gold
deposits to be developed, the unsettled
question as to boundaries and the probable
recurrence of such Incidents as that wheh
took place at Uruan, the necessary capital
for developing the gold industry has been
withheld aud that for no other reason than
the lack of security on the frontier.
THEY WANT WAR.
But now, by a sharp and decisive blow at
what they term "Venezuelan arrogance,"
they hope to change all this very shortly,
and so hail the prospect of a speedy return
of prosperity to the British colony.
