. Hospital for the Irsatte was of suffl
, clent proportions to feed several regi
ments. Over three thousand Insane peo
ple were served with the special fare,
while nearly five hundred employes par
toe k of their share, too. The menu
called for fricasseed chicken, celery,
cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green
peas, bread and butter, mines pie and

Making the children at the German
' Orphan Asylum, in Good Hope road,
happy through the serving of a typical
1 Thanksgiving Day meal, was a service
I performed by business men of the city.
1 It was prepared and served by Superin
tendent Oscar H. Prlel and Mrs. Frlel,
I the matron. Jn addition to the turkeys,
I which were roasted, there were cran
berries, celory, pork, and sweetmeats.
The aged Inmates of the Christian and
Eleanora Buppert Home for the Aged,
near Good Hope road, were served with
sumptuous fare today, and Mrs. Her
mlne Ramm, the matron, prepared a
dinner consisting of noodle soup, tur
key, cranberries, potatoes, and mince
pies As It was visiting day at the in
stitution, many friends of those cared

The Episcopal Home for Children, de
pendent upon the generosity of Us bud
porters in the various Episcopal par
ishes of the city for provisions and arti
cles or diet appropriate to tne season,
found a ready response upon the part of
the different parishes today. It was
donation day for the home In many of
them, with the result that a turkey din
- ner and many dainty dlsnes for the
little ones were made possible.
Presbyterians in Anacostla , held re
ligious services In the Garden Memorial
Church this morning, and they heard a
sermon preached by the Rev. George M.
Cummlngs, pastor, on "Peace." There
was e time, the minister saia.when the
idea of the abolition of war was re-
, garded as a mere dream of the poet, an 1
so men had spoken of the suggestion
of abolishing slavery. "In a notuble
nddress by Justice Brewer," said the
Rev. Mr. Cummlngs, "he stated that
there was 'first a thought, then a wish,
next a faith, afterward a struggle, and,
finally, a fact,' in some of the greatest
events In human life and history. So
there has been a gradual advance fa this
cause, until now the struggle is on.
' Since the organization of the first peace
society, In 1815, the movement has
grown until there are today more than
1,000 such organizations. If the tax
payers of this, the richest country of
the world, are burdened ty the yearly
appropriations of $400,000,000 for the
army, fortincattons for the navy, for
the military academies, pensions, etc..
what must be the groaning of the great'
military and naval powers of Europe.
And yet money represents only a Bmill
part ot the cost of war. Washington
refused to write a history of the Revo
lutionary war because he wlshei Its
atrocities forgotten. The great majority
of the people of this county, and of
every other country, it can confi
dently be affirmed, desire peace, and In
this Instance the voice of the peoplo Is
the voice of God."
The reading of President Tnft's proc
lamation opened the services In the
Anacostla Methodist Episcopal Church,
whore the Rov. Samuol v. Grafflln, the
pastor, officiated. An cfferlne was made
bv the people for the Methodist Homo

Munsey Writer Says
"It is commonly urged by persons who
don't know anything about It, or who
think their bearers don't, that the Ini
tiative and referendum would take all
business away from Legislatures and
turn it over to the people. v Experience
does not bear out this view," .writes
Judson C. Welllver in The Munsey for
In an article, "Initiative, Referendum,
and Recall," he says:
"The .people hold their legislative
powers as a check on the Legislature.
They don't care to do all the business,
but are satisfied to know that If their
elected lawmakers don't do what Is
wanted, the people can do It themselves.
The lawmakers know this, too, and tne
knowledge makes them vastly more re
sponsive to public demands.
"What use would It be, for instance,
for a street car company In San Fran
cisco to spend $100,000 in bribing alder
men to pass a franchise, if the company
knew the people would probably Invoke
the referendum and refuse the fran
chise? "Such questions as these answer
themselves. Buying and selling the
votes of legislators, aldermen, and other
public servants would cease to be a re
munerative business, and therefore no-
Doay wouia engage, in it."
