ROLE OF CENSOR
October Meeting Will Discuss Bills
Providing: for District Hating
Advocacy of the "short" bread bill,
which would give the Commissioners the
power to regulate the weight, slie, rale,
and wholesomeness of bread sold to the
people of the District, and the election
of officers for the ensuing year was the
principal feature of the meeting of the
Petworth Citizens' Association last night
at the Petworth M. E. Church.
Coincident with the discussion of the
merits of both bread blUs submitted for
the approval of Its members by the Com
missioners, the association considered the
plan to ask for legislation providing for
tho wrapping of all bread. Though sev
eral members strongly advocated steps
toward obtaining legislation In this mat
ter, no action on It was taken by the
Jniura Indorses mil.
Charles J James, one of the delegates
or the association who attended the hear
ing on the two bread bills held at th
District Building last week, explained to
tne members present why ho thought
the "short hill" was the best of the
t o measures
He said the bill empowered the District
t ommissioners to make the regulations
regarding the traffic of the commodity
and he thought the heads of the local
government would do their best to gratify
the needs of the consumers They would
and could, under the provisions of this
bill, he said, enact regulation to suit
peculiar conditions that might arise at
any time. On the contrarj, the other bill,
he said, if enacted Into Ian. would pro
vide specific regulations regarding the
weight, wholesomeness and other features
of the traffic but could not be changed
lthout considerable difficulty in case
an emergency would arise that no phase
of the measure covered This, he said.

New- York, Sept. 16. The police, of this

as the great Hudson River murder ms-
tery seemed a week ago. For three

to be driven to Hastings.
Her manner aroused the curiosity of
tho boys, who later returned to the spot
where the woman had been seen, clam
bered down the rocky hillside, and sud
denly came upon the skeleton of a man.
The flesh had wasted from his bones,
but parts of his clothing remained.
Near by was found a woman's dress
