Several weeks ago tlie Star editorially
attempted Jo liscourage the establishing
of a workingiiiau's library, reading-room,
and labor bureau The editorial was un
doubtedly printed to counteract the ef
forts ot The Times in baaair or that worthy
tnterpn-se, and the .Star tbeaiext morning
was called to acount ju these columns for
ib iwioub criucisni All this happened
prior to the time when the Star became
afflicted with labor hysterics and alf o be
fore The Tunes contemplated the jiuhlica
tionoraii evening edition.
Yesterday in a spawn of righteous en
deavor to show real for 3ts new labor faith
the Star editorially commended the library
project. Has an eleventh hour conversion,
inasmuch as labor organizations have al
ready taken up the matter and will see the
Hbrary established. But tlie conversion
is none the less welcome.
Some isiue .since The Times offered the
use of its columns to begin the work or so
liciting books for the library. "Every public-spirited

be sent to an authorized committee and
when thellbrary room was ready for their
reception the books could be collected and
placed on the shelves. In this Tray a large
library could be gathered at little -expense.
There is really no other public enterprise
that would render workingruen greater

CHICAGO U-NIVEKSITY AxTD THE
In order to be acceptable to Mcsfts. Rock

to the Chicago University, the professors
of that Institution thould recelvo their

TRACTICAX, AND ECONOMICAL.
Dr. "Woodward, the health officer or the
District. Is to lie commended for the new
departure he has Inaugurated in providing
the poor with medicines. It is .practical
and economical. The poor will get their
panacea more quickly; the physician will
have less mechanical work to do, and a
great saving will be effected to the tax
payers. The new 2 stem is described fully in the
jww-s columns or The Times this morning.
It as merely tentative at first and will be
put in operation xa a Jew districts only,

OTJE PARKS AND TBEES.
.Every stranger visiting Washington, no
matter what may be his opinion about j
the clly generally, falls in love with Its
charming parks and beautiful tree-lined
streets. Tew cities are so bountifully
provided -with both.
Superintendent of Parking Langhorn,
in his report to the Commissioners, presents
some Interesting Tacts regarding tree cul
ture in the streets of the capital. Tf e she ws
how each year goes its precursor ""one bet
ter" In the numberof trees setout.and ho w
carerully the work in the nurseries in
carried on. Bie also directs attention to
some shortcomings, which, under prevail
ing conditions, are unavoida"bIe.
The trouble with which Superintendent
Xangliorn has to contend Is that which
stands in the way ot so many other im
provements in the District the Insuffi
ciency of Congressional appropriations.
It is not possible, on this account, lo give
the trees that care, and protection which
is conducive to their growth and appear
ance. It is to be "hoped that "Congress may not
pare down the estimates to be ubmiited
by the Commissioners for the rext fiscal
year. Not only must the trees have better
I attention, but work must be begun upon
thlrly-slx govornraent reservations, which
have been placed under District control.
They will add that many more beauty spots
and breathing places n hero the poor may
enjoy their ouihign and which gladden
the eyes of ever body.

CHECKS TO 'CO'HSUMPTION
Dr, Woodward Has a Plan to Pre
vent the Disease Spreading.
Does Not Intend to Adopt Stringent
AleuHtires, but Makes Valuable
Suggestions to TboeAfTUcted.
Dr. Vf. C. Woodward,, health oKicer for
the District, is meditating oer a propo
sition for tiie belter prevention of the
spread or consumption It js not probable
that any stringent uieasu res will be adopted
for the control or the disease in the Dis
trict Such a. thing la not even con
ternnlatod, so far ab is now known.
Dr. "Woodward said yesterday, how
ever, that there are more deaths each year
rrom the various tjpes of consumption
than from any other jorm of disease.
In proof of this he turned to his records
and showed thux for the year ending June
30, 1805, 831 deaths odt or a total of
5,765 were due lo tonsuiuiiUpii; for the
previous year, 801 death oC 0,039 reported
were produced from lite j,nuae cause.
"It is the law in Michigan," said he,
"under a resolution adopted by the Stale
bpard or health, Uiat consumption and
other diseases due to the bacillus tuber
culosis, shall be included in the official
list of diseases dangero-is to public health,
requiring notice by householders, and phy
sieians to the local health officer as soon
as Mich a disease is recognized.
"The Isolatiou of the patient Js not
enforced, the purpobe behu lo secure infer'
uiatiou of the location or each cose of this
mobt dangerous disease, with the view
or instructing tfco patient how to ao!d
reinfection or communicating the dis
ease to others."
"It can be communicated, doctor?"
"Yes, and it is important to know just
how to .guard agalnsi infection. Th
disease Is dangerous and com muni eable
The chief danger exists in the expectora
tions of the consumptive person One
persou uffected may spread the d&ease to
very many healthy persons "
Dr "Woodward pointed out many or the
rules that should be observed by patients
and those in chargoror cases.
"Coimumptrves bhuuld, be iuslxucted,"
he said, quoting .partially from the sugges

Taxpayer In the Dark.
Editor Times: I read your article In
this morning's paper on the light ques
tion. You have my hearty congxatulauon
in this matter, as It was ouly last night,
while driving through some of our most
beautiful streets, we felt as af we must
engage someone to go ahead of us with
lanterns to prevent running into some
one, as until arter 10 o'clock, when the
moon shone, it was so dark that at any
minute an accident might have occurred,
ir jou are driving or walking on any
street or this rtrat and beautiful Capital
City, excepting Pennsylvania avenue and
Fourteenth street, you cannot fall to
notice the extreme darkness and absence
of light anywhere, which ought to be a
great inducement for all kinds or vice and
I heartily indorse the excellent Judg
ment and courage or The Times in taking
hold of ilbis all-important matter, hoping
that this valuable paper wall push this
urgent necessity. I am jsure ion will
merit the good wishes and thanks as well
as the indorsements or every sensible per
son m the city of Wastungton.
