WASHINGTON, D. C, MONDAY, MAY 22, 1911.
THE PROPOSED SUNDAY
SOCIETY AND CLERGY
OF SABBATH HERE
WILL BE MERBED
MINISTER OF WAR,
LAW FOR WASHINGTON
'V.-jG-Vp i--"X? " '
Capital Dignified and Orderly on Sunday,
They Assert, Despite Charges of
Sabbath desecration is less prevalent in Washington than in any
iither great city of the United States. This rs the answer which seems
to come with practical unanimity from every quarter of the Capital in
'answer to the strictures placed upon the city by the report of the spe
cial committee on Sabbath observance laid before the session of the
-Presbyterian General Assembly at
BLOW AT CAPITAL.
In this report the committee dwelt at
length upon the so-called general disposi
tion on the part of people in Washlng
'toa to ignore the Fourth Commandment.
It waa alleged that In no city was Sabbath-breaking
so flagrantly Indulged in or
bo openly practiced as In the Nation's
It was charged that saloons were run
wide open, that the Sunday newspapers
were cried at all hours of the day, that
"Washington society failed to recognize
any difference between the first and any
subsequent day of the week in its recep
tions, muslcales, luncheons, dinners, and
teas: that contractors worked their em
ployes on Sunday whenever they chose,
and that theaters and picture shows ran
at their own sweet will.
Regarding the Sunday observance laws,
Inspector Gessford, acting chief of police,
said last night:
"A whole lot that the Presbyterian As
sembly has heard about Washington is
true and a whole lot more of it is un
true. The particular charges about the
open saloon are altogether out of line
with the facts. The saloons of Wash
ington close at midnight on Saturday
night. They do not reopen until the legal
hour on Monday mocning. Such lUjors
and wines and beers as are dispensed in
the hotel dining rooms are sold under the
existing law and the conditions in the
city have never suggested to us the de
sirability of amending them, for it Is not
thought these laws have ever been seri
Open Within I. am.
"The open thoaters are open within the
law. The entertainments are not In the
nature of plays or operas, but simply
' lectures, many of them on sacred sub
jects The nickelodeons and ten-cent
theaters are permitted to remain open
for seven hours of the Sunday evening.
They have never been productive of
either immorality or disorder.
"The selling; of Sunday newspapers on
our streets is permitted by the law. Com
plaints against the sale of newspapers
have never been seriously made or
berlously entertained by the police. The
police are privileged to stop "any newj
bov who makes a nuisance of himself.
"AH in all. Washington Is an orderly
and a dignified city on the Sabbath, and
if there Is any doubt about it some of
the critics of the city might do well to
look Into the police records of cities of
similar Size for Monday morning police
court cases brought about through dis
orderly conduct, drunkenness, and the
like, on the preceding hunday.
Rev Dr Wallace Radcliffe, pastor of
New York Avenue Presbyterian Church,
expressed the opinion that in the matter
of orderliness and Sabbath quiet Wash
ington was comparable with other cities
of its size
"At the same time." said Dr Radcliffe.
"there are evils to be corrected. In a
way the people of the Union come to
look upon Wellington as a city which
should furnish a model of conduct for
a nation. This Washington Is not doing
in the matter of tho observance Of the
Sabbath by the smart set There ib no
doubt about it that the tendency toward
Sabbath-breaking is increasing here. The
example set by the ultrafashlonable is
spreading through the other social fac
tions of the city. There Is not that Sun
day peace and Sunday quiet in the homes
of the fashionable that Is In keeping
with either the letter or the spirit of
the commandment- 'Remember the Sab
bath day and keep it holy.' "
Other Cltlen Guilty.
"I doubt if Washington is more guilty
In the matter of Sabbatli desecration
than any other Eastern city," said Rev.
Herbert Scott Smith, D. D , rector of St.
Margaret's Protestant Episcopal Church.
"I mean In tho matter of the non
obscrvanco of the day by those engaged
In mercantile pursuits. Perhaps Boston is
moro orderly on Sunday than is Wash
ington, and on the other hand there Is
practically no difference between Wash
ington and the near-by cities of Baltimore
"I do not think that the infractions of
tho Sunday closing ordinance by the
saloonkeepers arc cither numerous or fla
grant. So far as the abuse of the Sab
bath by the social element is concerned,
there is no doubt that we are growing
every year less and less strict in our ob
servance of Sunday. I think It Is to be
deplored, but I do not think that the non
church members should be expected to
place a strict acceptation on the observ
ance of Sunday when members of the
churches members of nearly all the
churches are lax In their observances.
"They cannot expect too much of the
nonmomber when they are careless them
selves. Reform in the conduct of the
world toward Sunday mast come from
wKhIn tho church rather than from tho
preisure of tho church upon the non
church member. If the churches would
have Influence and eximplo to work for
them they should Institute these Influ
ences and set these examples among
"Set Upon a Hill."
"Tho riason why Washington Is made
thus the subject for so rigid a eriUclsm
Is because tho nation Is Inclined to look
upon it3 Capital as 'a city set upon" a
Mgr. James F. Mackln, pastor of St.
Paul's Roman Catholic Church, said:
"Tho observance of Sunday In Wash
ington is as orderly and as dignified as
J in any city of similar size in the United
' States. Sunday Is a, day of rest and re
laxation. This does not imply that Sun
day should be o, day of torpor. I do not
think that the normal and healthy In
door or outdoor amusements of the peo
ple should be Interfered with. I have

BAN ON NEWSBOYS.
Section 2. Article X. of the Po
lice Regulations of the Dlstriot
of Columbia, reads as follows:
"No person within the District
of Columbia shall make any noise
or outcry for the purpose of ad
vertising' wares or attracting the
attention or Inviting' the patron
age of any person for any ve
hicle or any business whatsoever;
provided, however, that newsboys
may cry their newspapers be
tween the hours of 6 a. m. and S
p. m. on secular days of the week
but not otherwise. Provided fur
ther that newsboys may at other
necessary hours cry extra edi
tions of newspapers on extraordi
nary occasions. Provided further
that this section does not apply
sen-Ices of the churches are not dis
turbed with the alleged raucous cries of
the newsboys. I do not think there is
so much of building or excavating or
other manual labor carried on In the
city as is Inferred by the report. I have
not known of this form of Sabbath
breaking In Washington. The charge la
news to me."
Introduced by Diplomats.
Sunday entertaining has become a fea
ture in Washington society of late years
In fact, since the new century began. The
foreigners who come as members of the
diplomatic corps Introduced it. They
were followed and helped by New York
ers who have taken up their residence
in Washington for the serial seasons.
Sunday festivities arc not indulged in
by the official and resident set in Wash
ington, as a rule. True, there are some
cf both, as ihcre are in all circles, who
have exercised their individual tastes,
but as a class the officials are a church
going, conservative class. They hold
to the teachings of their ancestors, and
observe Sunday as a day of church-going
and rest from even the exertion of
The President and Mrs. Taft, as well
as ail their predecessors, are of the same
mind. The Vice President and Mrs. Sher
man are among those who never accept
01 extend Sunday Invitations, nor do the
Secretary of State and Mrs Knox, or the
retiring Secretary of War and Mrs. Dick
inson. The Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatives and Mrs. Champ Clark are
also of this class, as are Gen, John W.
Foster, former Secretary of State and
former special envoy to China and
Mexico, and his family; the Chief Justice
and Mrs Edward D. White", Mr. Justice
and Mrs Harlan. Mr. Justice and Mrs.

Admiral and Mrs. Schley, and Rear Ad

Belce In Dny of Rest.
Mrs John W. Foster said she and Gen.
Foster had always observed an old-fashioned
Sunday. They regretted there were
so many good people who had not the
same feelings on the subject, and did not
observe Sunday even as a day of rest,
which they believed every ono needed.
Mrs. Champ Clark said she and the
Speaker had been raised with the strictest
observance of the Sabbath, and while
they now observe a modification of these
early teachings, they never accept Invi
tations for luncheons, dinners, or recep
tions on Sunday.

Members and Other Officials.
Paris, May 21. Henri Maurice Berteaux, minister of war, was
killed and Antoine Ernest Monis, premier and minister of the interior,
was probably mortally injured as the result of an accident at the start
of the Paris-to-Madrid aviation race at the drill grounds at Issy les
Moulineaux at dawn this morning. Fifty thousand French people with
the holiday spirit and in holiday attire awaited the start in the cold
of the early morning.
The first to get away was Naval Lieut. Conneau, flying under the
pseudonym of Andre Beaumont, because he is on leave of absence, he
ascending at 5 :10. He was followed by Roland G. Garros, who has just
returned from flying in the United States, and who in turn wa9 followed
by Gibert. All were using Bleriot machines. The crowd was cheering
the men who got away, when in the clearing morning light Traine, the
new aviator, was to be seen approaching the drill ground with a pas
senger, Bonnier, in his machine. He was flying a steel monoplane, built
and patented by himself, and as he circled to try his motor it was to be
seen that something was wrong.
CIIOWD OX THE FII'.LD.
As Traine arose, the premier, the min
ister of war, and other notables, not
being able to see from the stand of honor,
moved nearer to the starting line. The
The crush was tremendous, and It was
necessary to call for another squadron
of cuirassiers to ride upon them and
.keep back the throng.
Traine was shutting off his motor and
Drenarine to alight directly over the
horsemen as they rode upon the field.
In order to avoid striking them, Traine
shot into the air again. He was unable
to see the group of notables Just on the
other side of the horsemen. Having clear
ed the cuirassiers, Traine slanted toward
the earth again and dashed headlong Into
the crowd beyond.
Minister of War Berteaux was dead
ahead of the machine. The propeller
caught his right arm, which he had raised
to fend off the blow, and In a second
had torn the member from the body. M.
Berteaux was killed Instantly.

Premier Monis was burled beneath the
machine and was unconscious when lifted
