Europe showing the Russian Crar a prisoner of
his own people in one of his own palaces.
They educate little princes well, and often a
boy, now the Crar in prison, read without thought
of himself these words:

The District Commissioners today

troller of the Treasury, a. ruling: es
tablishing the right of crossing po

consequence of Injury received or m
llgnant disease contracted in the line
The ruling follows a protest filed
by the Capital Traction Company
against granting unlimited sick leave
with pay to crossing policemen in ad
dition to twenty days' annual leave.
The Comptroller rulea that the law
of September 1. 1010. gives to the
crossing policemen "all the rights,
benefits, privileges and immunities
now possessed or which may hereafter
be possessed by other members of the
metropolitan police force." The right
to flick leave with pay, he says, is un
questionably a right, benefit or privil
ege within the meaning of the law,
and if other members of the police
force are entitled to more than thirty
days' sick leave within any one year.
It must be held that the crossing po
licemen likewise are entitled there
The rules and regulations of the
Police Department provide that "no
member of the force shall be allowed
sick leae for more than thirty days

the same Is In consequence of injury
received or a malignant disease con
tracted In line of duty, and then not
until the Board of Police and Fire Sur
geons shall have recommended that
such excess be allowed, anu the same
shall have been approved by the Com
The Comptroller advises the Com
missioners that under these rules and
regulations, whlrh hae the, force and

Whlttaker, superintendent of the In

The charges were made In an affi
davit filed with the National Woman's
party, following Mrs. Dovee's dis
missal from the Institution, because,
she alleges, she was friendly to suf

Mrs. Bovee, In her adfldavlt sworn

warden. Letters for prisoners, she
declares, were frequently destroyed
by the Occoquan authorities and mall
for the suffragettes was held up until
the completion of sentences.
She declares that the bedding for
the common prisoners was changed
only at long Intervals and that thla
rule was not broken, even when a
new prisoner took the bed occupied by
a discharged prisoner.
Prisoners with communicable dis
eases are not Isolated quickly enough,
Same Soap For All.
Mrs. Bovee declares the soap used
by the prisoners was common to all.
Every Incoming prisoner was required
to take a bath, and the same cake
of soap was used as long as It lasted.
There were worms In the beans,
hominy, rice, cornmeal, and other
food, used at the Institution, de

kings past and to come and that was but a part
of his work.
All the charges made by Mrs.
Bovee were placed before Super
