When asked last evening as to the alleged
intention of the Board of Commissioners to
abolish tho police trial board. Commission
ers Ross and Truesdell both declarod that
such a proposition had never been discussed
by tho board formally or informnlly, nor had
either of them entertained such an idea.
"Simply because tho lludings of tho trial
board aro sometimes reversed," saia Col.
Truesdell, "some pooplo jump to a radical
conclusion that the board is m disfavor, when,
in fact, it ought to bo remembered that its
findings are not final and that reversal may
bo expected occasionally.
"It docs not mean that the board is to be
legislated out of existence," was the Commis
sioner's concluding remark.
Tho Commissioners yesterday passed upon
the findings of tho trial board in the cases of
Privates E. L. L. Edelin and W. S. Brady, re
spectively. In Edelin's case, who was ar
raigned for gross neglect of duty, the trial
board lound him guilty. In consideration of
previous good character the officer was lined
but $15, and this tho Commissioners ap
prove. Tho board's recommendation of a fine of
$10 against Brady for neglect of duty was set
aside and the line was increased to $20. Com
missioner Truesdell's indorsement upon the
paper was in effect "that as this is Brady's
second offense within a year, his defense is
not satisfactory. It is ordered that ho bo
warned that a repetition of the offense will
The Commissioners took no action in tho
other cases, although Col. Truesdell recom
mends that in Private. Kopp's case a fine of
$20 be imposed.
Messrs. Christy and Smith, counsel for
Philip J. Hayden and others, were yesterday
informed by iettor that the Commissioners do
not deem it expedient to comply with their
reguest for a copy of iho proceedings and
record in tho trials of the policemen who
were dismissed from tho force.
They are furtner referred to tho fact that
in a previous communication they were In
formed that tho officers wero put off the forco
because, in tho judgment of the Commission
ers, tho public interests demanded such ac
tion. The bill for tho regulation of tho sale of
milk, which was submitted to tho Commis
sioners by tho Medical Society, and which
will be placed boforo Congress for actiun in a
few days, provides that no person shall,
within tho District, keep or maintain a dairy
or dairy farm, or offer milk for sale, without
a permit so to do from tho health office, tho
permit being subject to revocation; also, that
no person shall bring or send into the Dis
trict for sale any milk without a permit from
the health officer. '1 he application for per
mit shall include a detailed description of tho
dairy farm or dairy whore said milk is pro
duced or stored, and accompanied by a
sworn statement as to tho physical condition
of the cattle supplying tho milk. Tho con
dition imposed is that nono but pure and una
dulterated milk shall bo supplied thereunder.
No person suffering from or who has within
a period specified by tho health officer been
exposed to diphtheiia, scarlet fever, erysipe
las, smallpox, anthrax or other dangerous
contagious diseaso 'shall work or assist in or
about any dairy or dairy farm, and no pro
prietor shall permit tho same to bo done.
Tho bill also prohibits tho salo of Jin whole
some, watered or adulterated milk, or that
known as swill milk, or milk from cows that
for the most part aro kept tied up in stables,
or that aro fed on swill, garbage or other liko
substances; also butter or cheese made from
any such milk.
The standard of pure milk, and such onlyas
can be sold, is fixed at not less than 12 "per
cent, of total milk solids, of which at least 3
per cent, shall bo of fat and not more than 88
per cent, of watery fluid.
It prohibits tho sale, exchange or delivery,
or haying in possession with intent to sell,
exchange or deliver, skimmed milk contnin
tinc; less than nine and three-tenths per cent,

Judge Miller's Decision In Holding Book
maker Fred. T. .Miller for the Action
of the Grand Jury.
Fred. T. Miller was hold for tho action of
tho grand jury In $300 bonds by Judge Miller
yesterday in tho BcnningJsJ bookmaking test
case, the court deciding that bookmaking is
prohibited in every portion of tho District
undor tho laws.
Attorney HarryE. Davis, who appeared for
Mr. Miller, opened the case by saying ho
hoped his honor, when ho read Judge Cole's
decision, had seen its inconsistencies. Judge
Miller replied that it was held in tho Colo de
cision, In the case of tho Ivy City bookmakers
last winter, that the statutes of 18S3. prohib
iting gambling and tho setting up and main
taining of gambling tables, or other devices
for the same purposes, and the net of 1891,
prohibiting bookmaking in tho cities of Wash
ington and Georgetown, nnd within one mile
thereof, stood together, both applying.
His honor did not concur in the' decision in
its entirety, but he did hold that the 1801 law
applied sb as to prohibit bookmaking in
Washington and Georgetown or within one
milo thereof. Tho act of 1883, according to
Judge Colo, prohibited bookmaking outside

those limits. Congress had not repealed the
act of 1888 by that of 1891 in its application
outside tho mile limit. Tho act of lhS3 could
be constrned to include nnd prohibit all modes
of gambling, and a bookmaker's slate and
other paraphernalia, under a liberal con
struction, came within the designation of
"gaming table, device, or other contriv
Under tho common law bettiDg on horse
raoes, elections, etc., was not gaming, neither
was playing an ordinary game of cards.
Thero must be some contrivance on the table
itself. Tho common law did not recognize an
ordinary table as a gaming table. Tne term
j gambling applied to taking chances on un-
1 certain result, such as faro, keno. roulette,
, etc. It seemed, however, that Congress had
legalized a thiug in ono section of the Dis
trict and made it unlawful in another.
His honor could not agree that the govern
ment could prosecute under either statute,
and was. therefore, forced to tho conclusion
that tho act of 18n3 was repealed pro tanto by
that of 1891, and that prosecutions for con
ducting bookmaking in Washington and
Georgetown or within one mile thereof, must
bo brought under the law of 1891, and for tho
same offenso outside those limits, under the
act of 1833.
