The failure ol Minister Denbj to act
proRijKiy ia theKu Cheng massacTeatrocky
and lus lurthcr neglect to provide lur a
faH and patisfaclory inet,tigation of that
outrage leads to the suspicion that he has
either gone fishing or is tippling iced tea at
a CMw8efeanimer-reort. Of course, foreign
lUMMfatcrs cannot be expected to devote their
entire Uoie and attention to public duties.
Tler Bupwiori here in "Washington are nut

for attention to dutv. I'nblic sentiment In

only an incident among many other oul
iages, and to prevent the further loss of
life it is neo'ssary that the United States,
with oUmt ciili7ed nations, should make
emphatic protest. The entire Christian
ivorid iSHiianiniousui demanding immediate
action, and Mmistor Denby's delay in re

Babied of n olficial inquiry.

A GAS PLANT IN THREE YEARS.
A correspondent suggests that a hand
Some IuikI could be raised to establish a
consumers' ga.s plant if everj person who
deposits $3 with the gas monopoly to
have the gas turned on would contribute
that amount to such an enterprise.
There are about 50,000 houses in the
District, and at least SO per cent, or
-10,000 of them burn gas At $5 each
these -10,000 consumers keep constantly
on deposit with the gas monopoly $200,
000, or one-tenth us entire capital stock.
Tive times this amount of money would
establish as good a gas plant as is now
operated by the gas monopoly, and at
the price for gas now charged, $1.25 per
thousand, would in three jears pay back
all the capital Invested.
Less than a mouth ago the gas monopoly
paid a dividend of $100,000, which is a
fiflh or its capital of $2,000,000, and as
a dividend of $200,000 was paid once
before this year it will be seen that the
monopoly realizes au annual profit of
at least 3o per cent. It is about time
Bomethiiig were done to free gas con

Editor Times. Tlie citizens of this clly

under the present condition of things It
seems impossible to accomplish tlie thing
Everj consumer of gas is required to
make a deposit before the gas Is turned on
for his use Now, why co'ild not all tils
deposit money which the present company
is using of ours be used as so much stoe
in forming a stock company ot our own,
to reduce, or, rather, to furnish gas at
cost to said consumers?
The citizens forming or comprising tills

that all streets torn up by them for the

The Electrical Workers will be inten
tionally conspicuous by their absence
from the Cotton States and International
Exposition, to be held at Atlanta, Ga.
At a meeting of the Electrical Workers'
Hall, No. 837 Seventh street northwest,
a letter from J. T. Kclley, grand secretary
and treasurer of the National Brotherhood
of Electrical Workers, was read, requesting
all electrical workers not to visit the ex
position at Atlanta for the present
The reason for this action by tlie National
B.fjtherhood is that a great deal or the
work dono in tho exposition building was
by convict labor. In Atlanta tho Electrical
Workers lately organized Union No. 27,
but so far it has not been able to make
itsair relt in that city. Tlie wages paid
workmen m Atlanta are rur below union
rafs and an eflort will be made to have
them raised to tlie standard, all around.
At present electrical workers are receiving
from a $1 to $1.00 per day; painters from
80 cents to $1 25, and carpenters from 90
cents to $1.50 per day.
Grand Secretary Kelly states further
through John llcKee, president of the new
union m Atlanta, that tho trades organiza
tions must inako the right Tor living wages
and if they are defeated the exposition
should bo bojeotted.
In compliance with the above suggestion

REV. ROBINSON THE PIONEER
ObJcctlH to Effect Moral and Material

erty and Other Interest ot That
Section Sentiment Expressed That
Colored People Huo Been Slighted.
Tho colored citizens ot wealth and
respectability who reside in South Wash
ington, met last night upon the invitation
of thcRev.H.C.Kobinsoii, lntheauditorium
or tho First Baptist Church, and effected
an organization to be known as the "Pro
tective and Relief Association of South
If the purposes and objects for which the
association was formulated are carried
out, it will mean a great reform among
tho citizens of South Washington. Two
or three hundred invitations had been ex
tended and were mostly accepted.
CALLED TO ORDER.
The meeting was called to order by the
Rev. II. C. 'Robinson, whosaid the meeting
had been called for the purpose of obtaining
tho sentiments of the leaders as to the
advisability of un organization which
would afford protection to the property
holders and give relief from tiie many
wrongs which were perpetrated upon the
people of that locality. He said he had
takeu the first step because he was
Interested in the moral, social and financial
status of the people there.
Tho citizens in the otiier sections of the
city had been enabled to obtain their rights
by organization and agitation, or he pe
litived thuuuuchgoud could b.'accompllshed
by tho proposed organization. He wanted
tho co ojierution and aid of iillgooel citizens,
and believed that bj concerted action much
good could be accomplished for all the
citizens, liresiective or creed or nationality.
When lie asked for expressions of opinions
as to the feasibility of the new movement,
Mr. R. II. Kejs, one of the largest property
owners, expressed himself in favor of such
a moAt'nient and claimed that ir it Lutl been
begun jeare ago the people in that locality
would lmo been benefited morally and
MUST LOOKOUT TOR THEMSELVES.
Ho promised his heart co operation in
the moementaud said that there weremany
w rougs that needed to be redressed, but that
that section of the cit had no representa
tive in the cit gov eminent and accordingly
its lutoreEt had been neglected.
The colored people or that section, he
said, paid a big school tax, but had no repre
sentation upon the board, although the
major poition or the colored school chil
dren are from that section He thought
that a permanent organization ought to
be effected at once
J A Gunnell said that South Washington
was considered as beiug ofr the map when
tho interest or the other sections of the
city was beiug looked arter He thought
this was due to tlie fact that the people
were not organized and had no leader
'He predicted better times for the south
west after the organisation had been
formed, and reliable, trustworthy men
were put at its heatl
Messrs Joseph Manning, J II Smiler,
B It PdnoIl, S E Jones, and others
expressed their approval of the movement,
and urged an early permanent organization
A temporary organization was then er
fected by the selection of the Rev II C.
Robinson as chairman, ai-d S E June as
secretary. The chair announced a com
mittee on permanent organization and one
to draw up a constitution and by laws for
the association There were speeches by
others or those present, and many w a s anil
means of making the work of the associa
tion a success were suggested.
By way of coiichidmg Rev. Robinson

the Military Authorities.
Information recenen at police headquar
ters last night li dicates that for the paltry
consideration of $20 justice in this Dis
trict Is about to be defeated In the case of
Balch and Day, the college students, who
came here some time ago, beat hotelkeep
ers, passed a forged check for $100, and
worked a general confidence game in all
sections of the city
The $20 mentioned Is the reward offered
by the military authorities for the appre
hension of Ylie oung men as deserters from
the army Of course, this amount will
go to the Baltimore policemen who arrested
the rapid young fellows The desire to get
the reward is no doubt the reason why
Baleh and Day will not be brougiit to this
city for trial
Detective Rhodes went to Baltimore yes
terday b order of Inspector Hollinberger,
to try and arrange with the Mar land
authorities for the surrender or the 'Chap
pies" to the Washington police He ex
plained that they had cut a wide swath
heie, and the charges against them could
easily be pioven and would no doubt re
sult in a penitentiary sentence.
TheBaltimorepohce w ereobdurate They
knew theio was a reward or $10 resting
on each of the pusoner's heads, as they
were deserters rrom the regular army de
tail at Fott Warren, Boston Harbor. Detec
tive Rhodes was informed that it had been
deteunined to turn the college men over
to the military.

PENTZ FOULED MACALESTER
Slight Collision of the Two Boats
at Marshall Hall Wharf.
Fart of tliePeiit'HAVoodworlc Carried
A v ay Tried to La nil I'.is-enuera
Over tho MaeulesterV, Deck.
A tumult of fear was caused at the land
lug at Marhall Hall about S 30 o'clock lat
night by the steamer Samuel J. Fentz run
ning Into the Macalester.
The latter boat was lying at her wharf
when the Pentz steamed up and struck
heavily near her bow The crowd on the
Pentz rushed in great alarm to that side of
the boat, and careened her bow in the water
As the two boats came together the
Pentz's guard was much below that of the
Macalester, and the bow of the latter was
thrust over and carried away a lot of the
Pentz's railing and light woodwork. 'The
total damage was not a er $100, of which
.Much the greater part fell upon the Pentz.
The Pentz, with Captain Barker aboard,
had been on a special trip to C .Ionia 1 Beach,
and on her return had abaard a number ,r
passengers who wanted to stop at Marshall
Hall. The purpose in her putting in as she
did was to land those passengers over the
Macalester 's deck.
Capt. Blake, or the M.alester, eaid this
had not beeu the practice Tor five years,
but mad" no criticism.
Tha Macalester was on her regular trip
aLd soon after the accident pulletl out and
proceeded on her way. Her pnseengers
were considerably excited and nothing else
was talked of for a tune; but no effect was
felt on board, aside from a little jarring
Tho blame was put entirel on tee Pentz
Capt Barker, of the Pentz, said the
accident was caused by a failure of his
bell to respond, so that when he ordered
to reverse the engines his engineer ciid not
gel the sisnal After tlie iouhng tlie
Pentz backed out, and a few moments
later the Macalester left the wharf.
