Ten warrants against holders of

tan Club, the Capital's most exclu
sive club, charging violation of the
Jones-Works excise law, were

null and void and that the places
conducted by the holders of them
should be closed.
Other warrants will be issued on
the same theory.
The complaint is made in the
following cases that the places in
question are conducted illegally
because they are located in resi
dential districts and are located on

Rescue of Four Boys From Ice
Chopped River Brings Recog
nition After Three Years.
Eleven years old and a hero
Not exactly the hero of t-mnll-boy
dreams perhaps for tlmv usually In
clude a death-swept battlelleld, with
the dreamer himself In the prominent
foreground, ringed about by the heaps
of enemies he has slain -but a real
kind o hero, the kind v. ho saves life
rather than destroys It.
And that Is the kind of hero Arthur
Lusby is.
His rescue of four playmates from
the Ice-chopped Eastern Branch, nfter
three years have passed, haa brought
him a Carnegie hero medal.
Arthur Lusbv Is fourteen years old
now. Ho Is the son of oPllceman W.
T. Lusby. of the Eleventh preiSlnct. and
Is a first-year pupil at Business High
P"hTrl ,'' Ji fiy .ir t , i il

awarded hv the reflldcnts of Anacostla
has not spoiled him.
The accident which plunged the three
children Into the rlvor, and tesiilted In
their rescue bv Arthur I.,usb, occurred
January 22, 1912 The Ice was breaking
under tho btrength of a steady inld
w Inter sun, and the boys of Anacostla
found a tang of adventure In "riding
tho floes." Arthur hlnlself was on tho
Ice. Farther away vrero live of his play
mates. Karl Fedden, poking at tho floating
lee with a stick, lost Ills lulance and
fell overboard Arthur Uudkoy and
Harold Cummlngs, trying to haul lilm
out, ere dragged Into tho water. The
other children, who were, near shout
ing "Save them' Savo them," fled for
shore.
But Arthur Iusby hurried away from
shore, out on the lco until he readied
the brink of the open wnter where his
friends fought to keep themselves
afloat. It was a hard task for the
eleven-year-old hero, but at last he had
all three oT the bojs out of danger
And that Is why tho Carneglo Hero
Fund Commission thinks that ho should
be honored for his deed.

Germany once more has sounded warning that it does not intend to

passage on the vessels of Great Britain or any of her allies in the
war zone which the Kaiser's government has decreed to exist in the
waters adjacent to the British Isles.
