that the street had never been ncccpted
by the city. After some debate the re
port was adopted. It was vigorously
opposed by P. P McCann, who said the
council should be positive tho street
had never been accepted by any of lta
acts before adopting such a report.

Then Chief Robling Proposes to Nail Up
the Providence Police Station.

Frequently Condemned liy Hcnltli
Authorities nnd City Olliclals, Hut
Vp to Dnto tho Nuisnnco Hns Not
Been Abated Althongh Repented
KflortsWcrc illndo in That Direc
tion, Chief of Pollco Frank Robling, Jr.,
Inst evening struck upon a good, solid
method for ridding the North End of
tho shameful police station in that
quarter of the city. It was born In a
spirit of desperation.
A number of public officials were
talking of this Infamous hole-In-the-grounel
used to Incarcerate prisoners.
Mrs. Duggan, agent for the board of
associated charities, who since she has
received her olllcer'ri commission, may
need the police stations to Incarcerate
prisoners, started tho conversation.
Officer Duggan visited the North End
basttle a few days ngo. It is situated
in a bullllng on East Mnrket street.
The police station Is in the basement
and directly overhend a hose company
has Its quarters. Tho Intervening floor
Is made of wood and the tramp, tramp
of the horses as they move restlessly
about can be heard at all times.
AN OFFENSIVE PLACE.
Whatever refuse thcro Is leaks
through the floor and nt every concus
sion falls Into tho police station. The
police officers ent their meals outside.
There is no loafing. When a policeman
brings In a prisoner he shoves him Into
a cell, slams the door and makes his
escape. When Mrs. Duggan visited the
hole tho stone-flag floor was wet.
"Have you been scrubbing?" she
asked. The officers explained that that
wns tho natural condition of tho floor.
When It rains, from two to twelve
inches of water covers the floor. Lieu
tenant Spellmnn trys to make It a
point to be In the open nlr as much ns
possible. In the winter a blg-bellled
stove Is kept red-hot, but a man will
freeze his back teeth while his Incisors
are baking. The wnter sometimes
freezes on the floor of the pollco sta
tion. Two drunken prisoners refused to
take refuge on tho banks one night and
they slept in three Inches of water.
Suit for damages to health are feared.
Four years ago tho board of health
actually condemned the station as un
fit for a human being. Chief Simpson
called the attention of councils to the
place nnd Chief Robling in his lust
batch of recommendations said It was
"not fit to keep cattle In." But councils
would not hearken.
Lat night ns the officials talked Chief
Robling suddenly exclaimed "Eureka!"
which In the North End means "I havo
found the ball."
"I have It," continued the chief, "If
councils does not act soon I'll have the
board of health ngaln condemn the
place and I'll then send out a &quad and
nail up the doors."
"What will you do with the prison
ers?" The chief was ready. "Why," he said,
"We'll have them kept In the hose house
with a man to guard them until the
patrol wagon reaches tho place."
DR. DEED HAS NOT GONE.
Dr. Roos Thinks nn explanation Is
An evening paper calls attention to
the fact that J. Ross Reed, M. D., has
not left the city, but Is looking after
a certain physician's practice here. The
following message received at The Tri
bune last night bears on this matter;
"Dr. Ellas J. Roos, of Adams avenue,
whose absence from the city was an
nounced in one of the evening papers
by an unauthorized person, has re
turned from Philadelphia."
Dr. Roos was out of the city only
