I Director General McAdoo will en force civility along with efficiency on all the railroads and in nil branches of the service, it is announced. Two hundred inspectors will be started over all the railroads under government operation beginning this morning. They will check up every employe from the ticket seller to the I chiefs in charge of dining cars, in I formation booths and other places | where the traveling public coines into touch with the railroad service. Charges ?( Insolesce. I Complaints have come from numer ous sources of employes acting in | solently toward persons clamoring at I windows for tickets, and of seemingly delaying efficient selling of tickets by needless conversation. Other em ployes, in charge of the movement of trains and of the movement of pas sengers to the trains, have been cen sured already by the raiiroad govern ment officials. There will be no preferences for per sons of prominence or wealth on any of the roads. One case recently helped in bring ing about the decision to put out the inspectors. A railroad president, trav eling to Washington, was the cause. A long lins of diners was waiting to be served on the over-crowded Penn sylvania express. ? . Pu*h to the Frest. The railroad president and his wife pushed ahead of everyone in the line and were recognized by the dining, car conductor. Two persons rose from a table, the corporation president and his wife were passed into the scats. K very one else was kept waiting. Pro l tests from those who had waited patiently for more than half an hour were met with the curt reply: ??Why, that is Mr. of the rail road." Protests were carried to the director general. The dining car conductor was summoned to Washington. He received brusque orders to give% preferences to no one, under penalty of being re moved from his place. Al<Wst immediately the decision was arrived at to send out inspectors. "EVERY RIVET DRIVEN IS BLOW AT KAISER 250,000 Volunteers for Shipyard Work to Enroll This Week.

Lord Reading, the new British Am bassador. accompanied by Lndy Read ing and members of his staff, arrived in Washington late yesterday after noon. Being rrrweli fatigued from his jour ney. Lord Reading could not see news paper men, but gave word that he did not wish to make any statements in addition to those he made in New York, until he bad been officially re ceived by the President. Lord Reading was accompanied by the following members of his stsff: Maj. Gen.

That it why the atroci ties are committed. A Judiciously placed atrocity, in the German mili tarist'* plan, does the work of a reg iment of soldiers. Cow a community, inspire it with horror, and it will need little watching by soldiers. The at rocities are a part of a well-thought out plan of the militarists. Vital instruments in this war are the submarine, the airplane, the wire less. the telephone, the trench, the big gun. The submarine, the airplane and the telephone originated in America. The wireless is Italian. Holland first used the trench centuries ago. The big gun was first proposed by a Britisher, though never used by Britain.

SUPPLIES; LOSS $425,000 Munitions and Uniforms Contained in Shipment. Incendiaries Blamed. Newark, N. J., Feb. 10.?Farty i freight cars loaded with munitions and uniforms for the United States I troops, were destroyed by fire which swept through the Legigh Valley Railroad transfer plant today. Two ! hundred other cars were removed I from the path of the flames. The fire is Relieved to have been of in cendiary origin. A yardmaster dis covered the blase and brought the firemen from Newark and Jersey City to the scene. The destroyed plant is within half a mile of the ship yards of the Sub marine Boat Corpofation and the Quartermasters' Corps depot, where I a disastrous fire took place some j days ago. The burned buildings were known | as the Oak Island Transfer, one of the biggest freight-handling ter- j mlnals in the country. By a narrow margin an explosion : was avoided when one of the ! switching crews pulled out a car; loaded with explosives. _ The loss was $400,000. Another fire in a plant manufac turing goods for the government was discovered 5 minutes after a i watchman at the Klaxon Compan-j ies factory, Newark, challenged a prowler and fired four shots at him. The loss was $25,000. Body of Woman Found. | New York, Feb. 10.-The body of * | woman dressed in deep mournmg was j found between ice cakes today on the ! beach at Coney Island. The police believe she committed1 suicide. A Letter to The Washington Herald To the Editor of The Wash ington Herald: After reading your article regarding the mur der of Miss Medley, a nurse at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Thurs day morning, we, the employes of St. Elizabeth's, feci as though we should thank you for the in terest you have taken in trying to get the correct details, as the other papers certainly gave poor | accounts of it. And when you say the mur der was due to the shortage of help, you say what is exactly trt*. And the shortage of help is not entirely due to war condi tions, but rather to the miser able working conditions, small salary, long hours, etc. In one of the evening papers l Dr. Chapman, our assistant' su perintendent, states that Harry Oberle, the patient that com mitted the crime, has never been regarded as a dangerous man. We wish to state this is abso lutely incorrect, as he has al ways been regarded by other physicians and nurses as danger ous. A "man that talked for hours at a time about shoot ing, or cutting; a man that wore wristlets and was secluded in a strong room for months, not considered as being dangerous? His records will show that he has brutally assaulted his nurses and fellow patients during his confinement here. And then, after (supposedly) knowing the character of this patient, to per mit him to work in a dining room where he had ample op portunity to get knives or other dangerous weapons, and only at tended by one 16-year-old girl, certainly looks like neglcct by the ones in charge. We think this should not be smoothed over and let drop, but should be investigated by the proper authorities and steps taken to prevent such crimcs in the future, as under the present conditions we feel sure such things are liable to reoccur. It is certainly dangerous for us who work here and also the public, so long as such patients are cared for by women and yourfg girls. At the present time there are wards with as high as thirty five insane; young, strong men confined behind lock and key, with only one woman or girl to care for them. This one woman or girl comes on duty at 6 o'clock a. m., and remains on duty until 5 and 8 p. m., alternate days. Then for the officials to say war conditions are the cause of insufficient help.

"The Arrival in the Western theater' of additional German forces coming originally from the Russian front are noted.

"Much dissatisfaction is expressed throughout Austria-Hungary at the roHcy of dispatching their troops to f<ght Germany's battles along the Western front "The desire for p^aoe is increasing dally in the dual monarchy, and it is only natural that the Austrians should resent sacrificing their forces on dis tant battlefields in the furtherance of German ambitions alien to their In terest*. "In the Balkans there was a recru descence of active operations. Allied patrols broke into Bulgarian positions at various points. The active co-op eration of the Greek contingent with the allies is noted, and Greek aviators conducted successful air raids in the Vardar Valley. "The situation in Russian continues confused. Economic conditions have grown more serious and internal strife has broken out In various parts of the country. "Though surrounded by foes, the Rumanians are still attempting to re main faithful to the allied cause.'' CADORNAREMOVED AS COUNCIL MEMBER Recalled with Associate General in Isonzo Debacle to Rome. Rome, Feb. 10.?Gen. Luigi Cadorna has been removed as a merabes of the interallied supreme war council. Gen. Gatano Giardino, formerly min ister of war, has been appointed to succeed him. Cadorna has been virtually stripped, for the time being at least, of ail re sponsibility and active connection with the army, being "placed at the dis position tof the minister of war." With him the two other generals who were directly responsible for the operations preceding and following the Isonzo disaster have been called to Rome, to be at the war minister's disposal. They are Gen. Carlo Porro, former subchief of the general staff, and Gen. Luigi Capello, who com manded the ill-fated Second army. 'This action comes coincidentally with^Jf not as a result of a powerful political and press campaign for "adequate punishment" of those re sponsible for the Isonzo debacle. U. S.
