Threats of further violence by the

current in other cities, have not yet
reached Washington, according to the

soon be 'in custody.

and political leaders hare been

of innocent lives. It iras re

More effectve child labor legislation
Is needed in the District of Columbia
Congressman Gard of Ohio told the
House yesterday during the reading
of the District appropriation bill.
Mr. Gard was discussing the pro
vision of the bill which provided a
?900 check for clerical work in con
nection with the administration of
the child labor law. Asked by Chair
man Davis, of the District appropria
tion committee, if he objected to the
appropriation, Mr. Gard said: "I do
not object; what I am objecting to is
because they do not have .more."
He said that Congress should put
every safeguard possible around the
children in the District since "the ad
ministration of the child labor law,
as U now stands, is almost negligible
in the District of Columbia."
Mr. Gard sought to amend the Dis
trict bill so that $1,000 would be pro
vided for a pulmotor and a telephone
service at the bathing beach.
"At the present time there is no
telephone connection with the bath
intr beach." Mr. Gard exDlained. "and
no means of communicating with a
physician in the event of finding a
person half-drowned or ill. There is
no pulmotor or any other instrument
for artificial respiration for those
partly overcome in the water."
Congressman Walsh had the amend
ment struck out on a point of order.
Plans are under way today -for the
organization of the Home Defense
League on a permanent, peacetimes
basis. Harry F. Allmond, secretary
of the league, announces that the
league has now about five hundred"
first line members, or an average of
fifty men to each of the eleven pre
cincts In Washington. These men
hold themselves in readiness all the
time to answer a call In case of
emergency to aid the police.
Membership In the league Is to be
divided into three classes. The first
line members are ready to perform
emergency duty whenever called. The
second line members are to be called
upon only when necessary to support
the first line. Associate members are
not called on for active duty, but con
tribute to the financial support of the
William Phelps Eno is director of
the league. In cases requiring the
services of the league, the captains
of the league In each precinct are
notified by the director. They, in
turn, notify the two or three lieu
tenants of the precinct. The lieu
tenants have the' sergeants under
them collect their squads, composed
of men who live in the same Im
mediate neighborhood. Harry All
mond estimates that the full 500
members of the first line can be got
ten to the scene of an emergency In
In addition to the personal services
of the members, the league has ren
dered great assistance to the police
by lending their automobiles. Mr. All
mond says it is not at all uncommon
to heir some member remark: "I
was up all night last night. They
needed my car up at the precinct, and
I had to go with them."
The value of the Home Defense
League depends upon the fact that
the members, in their ostensible ca
pacity as private citizens, are often
able to carry on the work of watch
ing a suspect much better than a po
liceman or detective would be able
to do. The police are daily receiv
ing valuable tips from members of
the league -on Bolshevist agitation.
and it is understood that several
clues have been turned in to the
Metropolitan police force by league
members which may lead to the
identification of the anarchist who
was blown to pieces in the attempt to
dynamite Mr. Palmer's home.

BALTIMORE, June 7. As "Big
