man James Lowe, of the fire department,
wa allowed a pension ot ?30 a inumn
.from the Fireman's Relief Fund and 7&
for funeral expenses. The pension Is to
date from December 22.
The Commissioners wrote Senator Harris
that thej know of no reison wh a bill
shblld be p ised for the relief of Everett
Wroe. The special assessment clerk re
ports tliat he finds no error In the account
referred" to ta the proposed enactment.
A recommendation against the passage
ot a bill to remit penalties against delin-
jjucut, taxpa j eo was sent to Senator Har
ris. In the letter the Commissioners point
"cut tnstrttKTcffect of such legislation Is to
.encourage all manner of effort tcescape
taxation, and to bring about delays on the
part' of Increasing numbers of property
owners yl thejjre.u embarrassment of the
Thq taxpayer who Is dis'iosed to pay sees
some escaping entirely and others who
make the effort- getting off at no greater
cost than ir they had paid promptly This
Induces ccn tSe good citizen to make an
attempt to get off without paying. When
others avoid pajment, ho feels that It Is
only fair that he should save himself on
at least part of the charges against him.
If he fulls to secure exemption, he Is none
the worse off.
Such legislation, they say, has at various
times been enacted, and alwajs with the
harmful effects pointed out. They con
clude: "The bill under consideration Is more
objectionable than any of Its predeces
sors, as It appears to contemplate perma
nent legislation, fixing the penalty on over
due taxc3 at G per cent per annum, instead
ot 1 per cent per month, as at present.

John Karel, United States consul general

Secretary Herbert declined to say any

thht tlie'reporf recommends many changes.
In firing the turret guns the hydraulic

Story of an Italian Bootblack From
Will Interview Huron Kuvu Toduy to
Get Trun-pdiiatlon Hack Home.
To lletuni uml He Xtitiirallzod.
"I am Tomaso Loretto," announced a
grimestahied lad of sixteen years with a
strong maccaronl accent as he entered po
lice station No. 6 late last night and ap
plied to Disk Sergeant Garner and Assistant
Desk Sergeant Mansfield for a night's lodg
ing. "Who the duce Is Tomaso Loretto?"
said Mansfield.or-nonls to that effect.
-I'Tomaeo Loretto Is the Marco Tolo
ot the bootblacks, he balls from the city
of pork, he got into Washington tonight on
the trucks- of tin Royal Blue Llnervand he
is bound forltalj to Join tLe army of Hum
bert," Bald the hoy s he bitched up bis
8upenders and twirled his blacking box
over the other shoulder.
"What's all this!" asked Ur.Guruer, and
"Come around 1 ere and tell us about your
self," said Mr. Mansfield.
Tomaso came closer to Ihe golden rail of
the station and told a story which won him
a warm sjiot inthe hearts oj the police and
a warm cot In the station house. He suld
that when be was twelve- years old he
wearied of his old houieat Milan, and
longed for worlds to conquer. He thought
he would try the newest or worlds and with
out ccn a farewell to hv people he boarded
a stiamer as a stowaway, bound for New
York. Two days out, hungercompclled him
to reM'al himself to one of the mates and he
was forced to work his passage as an as
sistant In the steward's deiiartmcnt ot the
Helandeil atXew York In hopeful spirits,
but was somewhat disappointed that the
relations een In this countr were some
what strained Ixtwein capital and labor.
He blacked boots around the City Hall and
I'nrk Row, but he heard there stories of the
far and mighty West. Ue could not speak
a word of Kngllsb, but he soon caught onto
the Ami rlcan lingo. Dreams of the laud of
riches and eun.-et lighted up his sleep, and
be beat his way on freight trains to Pitts
burg. He remained there about a year
blacking boots for the railroad "bruktrs."
Helearneil more or the languagennd learned
to read and write with great racihty. His
acQuatntancenmong the railroad men made
It easy for him to reacli Cincinnati, and
there he remained for two years.sllll black
ing boots and making the best of Ills hard
lot. He showed his lnMithlack badge-. No.
1030, to the police of the Sixth precinct
and told how bootblacks aretaxed ten cents
there and compelled t,o keep the badge In
AIout a week ago a yearning foe the
home scenes of sunny Italy came over
him, and he began to cast around for a
way to get back. The idea struck him
that Jf he could reach Washington and
hac an interview with the Italian minis
ter that diplomat would fixhls homeward
passage, and he would bene his lime In
the Italian army, and then come back to
the United btates and take out papers of
naturalization. He smuggled himself under
the trucks of one of the coaches mid enmc
through all right, reaching Washington last
night at 9 o'clock.
He Interviewed some fellow-bootblacks
and their kinsmen, the newsboys, and was
referred by them to police station No.
0 as a safe place to go, and whero the
danger of being pinched as a vag Is re
duced to the minimum. He showed up at
No. U, was gien a comfortable place to
sleep, and will call al the Italian legation
He said that when he reached Washington
he hud had nothing to eat for twelve hours,
but the boys whom he"struck on landing
here soon filled him up with sandwiches
and other delicacies. Tomaso was very
much unvnstind when he presented himself
to the police.

his wrath upon the reporter. He told him
In strong terms what he thoughtof the mis
conduct of a man who would avail him
self of the "courtesies" of another and then

said such a thing would not be permitted
and if the offense were repeated the re
