Mere Light Requested Concerning
the Lighting Schedule.
Lb the Editor of The Evening Star:
The City Lights.
Gas lights all lighteil by 7:24 p.m.; ex
tinguishing begun at 3:48 a.m.
The lighting is begun one hour before the
time named.
Can It be that the Washington Gas Light
Ccmpany furnishes one sehedule for light
tng the city lamps for the public eye, and
arother schedule for the public purse?
In The Star of yesterday it was stated,
resumably from official sources, that the
ps would be lighted at 7:24 p.m., and
4xtinguished at 3:48 a.m. Writing for my
own neighborhood, I wish to say that the
lamps were not lighted until 8:20 p.m. and
extinguished at 9:45 p.m. In conversation
with one of the lamp lighters he informed
me that his schedule read from 6:45 p.m.
to 9:20 p.m.; that is, the first lamp was to
be lighted at 6:45 p.m. and the first ex
tirguished at 9:20 p.m. As a matter of
fact, neither schedule was followed, for, I
am informed, but one hour is allowed to
each territory for completing the task.
Cannot The Star throw more light upon
this-dark subject? Are the taxpayers to be
credited with having the benefit of eight
hours of light with less than two hours'
service? . E. I. BOORAEM.

Police Court lawyers were scarce this
morning, and those who were not in the
little gathering yesterday were anxious to
learn just what was said.
Lawyer Chase, who was in court, told a
Star reporter that he had known of a num
ber of small fees paid. In cases, and In many
of these, he said, the prisoners can get
counsel for nothing, as some of the lawyers
are willing to appear just for the sake of
getting into court. The question of fees
is nothing to them, and they will make
speeches for which most attorneys would
receive big fees.
"Only the other day." he said, " a prom
inent lawyer had a case, and his client said
he had paid him 50 cents for his services."
Judge Scott's procession this morning
was a short one, and not a single one of
the few victims had a legal adviser.
Policeman Flynn had a singular experi

Alice Adams, a young .clored woman
from the country, was leader of the pro

arrested last night was nothing but loud
talking on New York avenue.
She was fairly well dressed and did not
appear like the women who hang about
low dives and spend all their money in rum.
"You are charged witi disorderly con
duct," was what the clerk told her. "Are
you guilty or not guilty?"
"Guilty,". the woman answered, "but I
would like to make a statement."
"What is your statement?" Judge Scott
asked her. "
"I'm a stranger in town," she answered.
"I live ten miles In the country, and have
peaches and chickens out there, and if you
send me down I'll lcse them all."
"What were you doing here?"
"My husband lives in the city, and I

o'clock in company with a male friend.
The weather was warm, and her tempera

some South Washington "firewater."
"And she had been there under the infin

John Brewer and William Harien were in
the procession of unfortunates. They are
strangers in the city and were found on the
railroad track near Ivy City yesterday.
"I am from Baltimore," said tne younger
of the two men.
"What's your name?" Judge Scott asked.
"William Harten."
"Where is your home?"
"In Baltimore."
"What are you doing here?"
"Looking for work."
"What's your trade?"
"I'm a printer."
Brewer was next called to the stand, and
he said his story was substantially the
same as that of his friend, whom he met
on the road.
Judge Scott questioned him and learned
that his story was not even abbut the same
as that told by Harten.
A sentence of thirty days in default of

Contention Between Dr. Hammond
and the Columbia Company.
A cross bill has been filed with the clerk
of the court by Dr. William A. Hammond
in the suit brought by the Columbia Chem
ical Company against the Animal Ex
tract Company and himself to restrain
the manufacture of certain animal ex
tracts. In his cross bill Dr. Hammend
asks that the contract between the Colum
bia company and himself be dissolved.
The doctor claims, among other things,
that the company is publishing false and
fraudulent letters and advertisements;
that medicines are being manufactured at
the office on 14th street, when it
is specified in the contract that they shall
be manufactured under Dr. Hammond's
su-ervision; that medulline has been sold
under the name of muscaline, and that the
Columbia company Is selling extracts made
from material shipped from Chicago.
Judge Cole ordered the Columbia com
pany to show cause, August 12, why the
temporary restraining order issued against
Dr. Hammond and the Animal Extract
Company July 25 be not dismissed.

Policemen and Juvenile Fruit Thieves
To the Editor of The Evening Star:
While others are confining themselves to
the moral and legal features of the Green
case, as regards the shooter and the vic
tim, allow me to draw a moral as regards
the duties of our police.
It is far noble- and better that they
should give their best efforts to prevent
crime than to detect and bring the crimi
nal to punlhment.
Boys who are permitted to run at large,
unrestrained, ard are allcwed to pillage
orchards. end commit trespass and waste
without check or hindrance are being edu
cated to become burglars and thieves in
later life. It is notorious that in every di
rection, all over the city and in the coun
try round about, the 'same scenes are en
acted with impunity as described by Miss
Flagler and her neighbors. Within a stone's
throw of the Capitol boys-principally
white ones-have so raided my fruit trees
that I have cut down several valuable
ones, most exposed, to get rid of the nui
sance of not only having the limbs broken
and fruit bruised and stolen, but my
grounds filled with clubs and brickbats and
, This very season, the moment the cher
ries on one unfortunate tree, standing too
near a twelve-foot wall, 'began to turn the
bombardment commenced, and during my
temporary absence the little thieves got
frrom the wall into the tree, and nesjy
ruined it by breaking the branches ad
throwing them to companions in the alley.
Not only this, but they played burglars
by working mortar from between the bricks
in the wall, so as to give them free access
to the grounds. And they did the same
thing to the wall of a building on the op
posite side of the lot.
I have also a place in the suburbs, occu
pied by a tenant who does business in the
city,'and during his absence gangs of hood
lnms, wita vihom are mingled boys of ap
parent respectability, run through the or
chards and openly rob the trees of half
ripe pears and apples, peaches and cher
ries. Some half dozen large cherry trees
were nearly ruined by the breaking off of
branches to get the fruit.
Not only this, but they have gone into
the cornfield and filled sacks with ears,
casting defiance to those who tried to re
strain them. And this upon a public high
way. aloig which a mounted policeman
gaily rides on his rourds.
My tenant tells me that he has repeat
edly asked protection of the police, but he
gets none. As for my city place. I also
made complaint at the prcper station, and
a policeman was sent to look into the mat
ter. He made one appearance and some
investigation and the trespassing stopped.
I am satisfied that if the police were
properly charged to give special attention
to these acts of vandalism and thieving
whenever they occur on their beats, with
out waiting for formal ccmplaints to be
made, the thing could be and would be
stopped, end this education of criminals
'This raiding of orchards and gardens is
utterly destructive of the fruit industry
and should be stopped,*and our police force
must be so instructed and managed as to
effect the result.
To say that it cannot be done is absurd.
This raiding is in the full light of day and
close by the twirling clubs of the saunter
ing policemen.
A few "runnings in," a few fines or
"sendings up"-just enough to show the
boys that the "cops" were on the watch
and meant business-wculd do the work.
We pay our -police for protection: let us
have It! REFORM.
Judge Lynch Interferes With the Dis
posal of the Glen Echo Railrond.
The Glen Echo railroad was to have been
sold under foreclosure of deed of trust, at
its junction with the Tenleytown road, yes
terday at 2 o'clock, but an injunction ob
tained from Judge Lynch at Frederick,Md.,
by the attorney of E. and E. Baltzley, Mr.
John Ridout, was seved on the trustees
and the sale was, therefore, not made.
Messrs. E. and E. Baltzley, who are most
largely interested in the railroad, say tha\
the prerent deed of trust is for a balance
due, principally to the Westinghouse com
pany, amounting in the neighborhood of
$17,000 and interest, the original amount
taying been reduced from $53,000,and while
that company wanted a settlement, it has
only been recently that extreme measures
have been threatned, through the influ
ence, it is believed, of parties who wanted
to acquire the railroad. T~he Messrs. Baltz
ley and others having put a large sum of
money in this road, amounting to over
$200,000i, say they will not permit it to be
rold for such a paltry sum.
Not Known Here.
The Harrisburg police authorities have a
case under investigation involving a mur
der or suicide, and they have communicated
with the police officials here for informs

of the Harrisburg police sent to Maj. Moore
a letter giving particulars and description

Charged That Union, Men Have Been
Discharged-OtherMatters Con
sidered &At Night.
Carpenters' Councla at its meeting last
night in their hall, No; 627 Massachusetts
avenue northwest, took a step which, it is
believed in organized labor circles, will in
evitably bring on a war between. the union
laboring men of the District on the one side
and the Eckington and Soldiers' Home
Raliway Company.
The subject of the discharge of one con
ductor on the Eckington line because he
was a union man, and, it is alleged, for no
other reason, and the dismissal of another,
who is now out of the city sick, for the
reported reason that it was understood by
the management of the road that he con
templated joining the Protective Street
Railway Union, as published in The Star of
yesterday, was brought before the council
and elicited much discussion.. Nearly all
present had something to say in reference
to, the matter, and the speeches were char
acterized by a degree of indignation such
as seldom finds vent in the addresses be
fore the body.
The council unanimously urged that
every member of organized labor in the
District should cease to patronize the line
until the wrong was remedied. It was
stated that the matter will be brought up
by one of the members of the council, who
Is also a delegate to the Building Trades'
Council, at the meeting of the latter Mon
day night next, while It is equally well
assured that the Federation of Labor will
have the same subject before it at the
weekly meeting Tuesday night.
The controversy with the Emerson Shoe
Company was discussed at length. The
secretary was directed to write to the
proprietors of the concern, Messrs. R. ..
Grover & Co., Brockton, Mass., and fully
inform them of the state of- affairs.
Other Business.
The new delegate from Carpenters'Union,
No. 1, Mr. Samuel Beall, was admitted and
It was announced that Mr. E. H. Morsell
has presented each of- the carpenters'
unions in the city, four in number, with a
handsome flag, which will be carried for
the first time in the Labor day parade..
Various matters relative to Labor day
were brought up, discussed and approved,
among them being the appointment of
President James F. McHugh as chief
marshal of the parade, and the resolution
passed by the Labor day conference at its
meeting Sunday last to have all mottos
which it is desired to carry in the line in
spected by a committee, so that nothing
offensive or personal to any one shall find
a place in the parade, as it is the wish of
the members of organized labor to be on
good terms with every one.
The special committee appointed to see
the builders of the District and ask them
to sign an agreement to employ none but
union labor hereafter-the latter agreeing
to do certain things to reciprocate-report
ed gratifying progress. The proof of the
agreement was shown to the council and
approved by them and ordered to be print
The matter of printing the constitution
was laid over until after Labor day..
The organization committee reported that
several obs; which have been- reported as
abot to -'be -undertaken or are -undere way.
are being looked after by them.
The regular ,weekly 'meeting. of District
Assembly No. 66, Knights of Labor, was
held last night -at Piasterers' Hall, corner
Of- Pennsylvania avenue and,. 4%. -. treet

a routine character was transacted.
Ironi aid Cornice Workers.
The Galvanized Iron and Cornice Workers
held their usual meeting last night, Presi
dent William Chamley being in the chair,
and Mr. E. C. Childress, secretary. It was
reported that some of the employers in the
District are not keeping up to their agree
ment to pay their men promptly every two
weeks, and a committee was appointed to
look after the matter. It was announced
that for the first time in a Labor day par
rade in Washington the bosses will be in
the line with their men in the coming cele
bration. Two new members were elected.
Grnnite Cutters' Union.
The members of the Washington branch
of the National Granite Cutters' Union, at
a special meeting held last night, deter
mined by a unanimous vote. to take part
in the Labor day festivities. So earnest
are the members in this matter that a
fine of three dollars will be imposed on
any one belonging to the umion who shall
work on Labor day. Messrs.. William Sil
ver and- James Bennett were- appointed a
committe to make all necessary arrange
Steamfitters' Association.
Labor day matters formed the principal
tcpic of discussion at the meeting last
night of the Steamfitters and Helpers'
Association. A uniform was adopted, con
gisting of blue jackets and overalls and
black caps. At the head of the line there
will be a wagon fitted out with anvils, vises
and a boiler, representing the tools used
in the work of the craft.

on charges growing out of the Proctor
case, which iolved the circumstant~es
of the ar eat of the young man Maxweil

the Edmut-ds law. This time another young
woman figures In the case. She is enm
ployed in the mail bag repair shop, where

ginia where her home is has been circulat
ing stories to 'he effect that she is the one
who figured in the Maxwell case.
Yesterday afternoon she called at police
headqurarter-s to enter complaint against
the officer. The young woman was very
indignant, and said she wanted the officer
punished, As the proper officials to re
ceive such cor plaints were not in the offiee
the young woman left, telling the officers
that she would make complaint in writing
to Mtaj. Moore.

The Result of the Lively Convention
at Rockville.
The republican county convention, which
was in session at Rockville yesterday, se
lected the following ticket to .be voted for
at the November election: House of dele
gates, Edgar . De Lauder, Ernest H.
Darby, J. Vance Lewis; state's attorney,
Thomas Dawson; judges of the orphans'
court. Howard Marlow, Israel G. Warfield,
Geprge W. Murphey; county commission
ers, Henry L. Block, third district; Cyrus
Keiser, fourth district; sheriff, Wm. Jones;
county surveyor, Willis B. Burdette. Dele
gates to the judicial convention were
elected as follows: A. M. Gould. J. T.
Moore, Wm. M. Windsor, J. W. Martin
all in favor of the nomination of Gulon
Miller as associate judge. The delegation
to the state convention -is composed of one
delegate from each of the thirteen election
districts of the county and three at large,
and is as follows: H. W. Griffith, Chan. P.
Johnson, Isaac Bell, A. A. Braddock, H. C.
Cheny, J. S. Gillis, Ignatius Belt, Wm. E.
Brown, Allan Rutherford, John McDonald,
H1. P. Black, C. F. Purdum, J. H. Fish
back. The three delegates at large are
Thomas Dawson, J. W. Case and Jno. W.
Addison. This delegation is entitled to four
.votes in the state convention, which will
be cast for Malster for governor. A reso
lution was adopted instructing the delega
tion to vote for Capt. John McDonald of
Montgcmery county for controller of the
treasury. During the progress of the con
vention Mr. B. H. Warner of Kensington
delivered a speech touching on the subjects
of reassessment, good roads, schools,
county expenses, etc. A series of resolu
tions touching upon national and state
affairs were adopted. After the adjourn
ment of the convention the general opinion
appeared to be that the ticket was a good
one, and would receive the undivided sup
port of the party in the county.
The resolutions adopted predicted repub
lican success, fevored reassessment, good
roads and free schools, denounced the last
legislature for falling to extend Judge Vin
son's term, complimented Congressman
Wellingtcn for his victory last November
and Increased the district representation
at county conventicns from five to nine.
The convention also elected three members
of the slate central committee, being
Henry Miller, Wm. Proctor and Allan
Rutherford. These gentlemen, with the
chairman of the county committee, consti
tute the Montgomery representation of
that body. Immediately following the con
vention the county ccmmittee met and
elected Tom C. Noyes chairman.
The star ding of the' convention on the
governorship question was clearly shown
by two test votes. The committee on nom
inations submitted a repcrt providing for
a Lowndes delegation, but this report was
turned down by the convention, and a sub
stitute lot of delegates-at-large, who are
all known as Malster men, was elected.
So many of the delegates as may be pres
ent at the Cambridge ccnvention were di
rected to vast the four votes of Montgom
ery, which will preclude the use of proxies.

Inspector Hollinberger's detectives
thought this morning that they might have
a mysterious murder case to investigate
when a postal card from Dr. Alexander
Dunbar of Langdon Heights was received.
In this card the doctor gave information of
the finding of some bk-od-stained clothing
in a creek near the place of Mr. Lewis
Maltby, and from this information the
o~flcers expected they would have a case
that needed some careful investigation.
Detective Rhodes was sent out to make
an Investigation and he soon concluded
that the case needed no Investigation. The
clothing found, he learned, was nothing
but some ordinary underclothing, and the
blood prints,. he thought, came from one
of the slaughter houses near the branch.
There was nothing to indicate that a trag
