"There Is no political apathy In the Dis trict of Columbia." said Mr. Gus. A. Schuldt to a Star reporter today. "There are political clubs palate and more are be *"ganized ciaily. "Banners are flying proud 1 j- on every important thoroughfare, and the preps is taking an active part in the campaign. Perhaps no state can boast of such political excitement as our disfran chised District. Four years ago not half of this (jnthusiasm was manifested, and the debate between Henry E. Davis and Stilson Hutchins was the only event of passing note. \et this debate was an Immense suc cess and was no doubt the means of In fluencing the votes of many as to the vir tues of sound money. "It seems to me that we should have an other or several of these debates this cam paign. The Issues which the democrats are attempting to foster upon the republicans >'et if they desire to go over the entire field of their apparent issues the republicans will accommodate them. Bet ter still, let them select their 'paramount issue, be it Imperialism, militarism, free sllverism or any other ism they can think of, and try their skill with the republicans. There are many prominent local orators in the ranks of both parties, and it should be a comparatively easy matter for the various local clubs to arrange for such an event. "There is no questioning the great benefit to be derived from such a meeting, and It is a mystery why they have not yet taken place. , ' By all means," concluded Mr. Schuldt, let us have some lively joint debates.

To the Kdltor t4 The Kvening Star: The editorial in Saturday's issue of The Star relating to the blocking of railroad crossings in South Washington was timely and right to the point. It echoed the sen timents of many citizens of South Wash ington. who earnestly hope that Tho Star will take this matter in hand and keep up a stiff tight until the abominable nuisance 1h lessened a little or abated entirely. The railroad companies s?cm to Imagine that they have a monopoly on South Washing ton. or certain parts of It, and consequently they do almost as they please. The con stant rolling of heavy cars, the puffing of steam and clanging of engine bells consti tute a had enough nuisance, but it is trifling when compared with other like nuisances too numerous to mention. The citizen who lives on the wrong side of the car tracks and ts employed uptown finds his life anything but a sweet dream. After a hard day's work at his place of business he is kept awake at night by the unearthly noises from a ponderous locomo tive not far from his residence. After a very restless night he dozes off toward morning, and in consequence awakens a little late for work. Then It is a case of "hustle." He rushes from his house, and the first thing he sees Is a long freight train on the street crossing. From past ex periences he knows that the train is likely to be on the crossing for some time, and realizing that he cannot afford to lose any time, he dodges beneath the gates at the crossing and hastily climbs over the ob structing cars. When snow and ice are on the ground, climbing over cars, moving or otherwise, is not a pleasant thing to do, and, as we well know. Is exceedingly dan gerous to life and limb. Yet this is done repeatedly by people who don't care to be late for work, or who have an important engagement to keep. The parking of cars on tracks within the city limits, except at places designated by law. Is prohibited In the District of Colum bia. but this law Is violated repeatedly. On several occasions freight cars loaded with manure and sometimes decaying vegetable matter have been parked on tracks In South Washington for hours at a time, and the odors coming from them were not only ter ribly disagreeable, but a dangerous disease 1 breeder as well. Only a few d?.ys ago an engine drew sev- [ era! cars upon the crossing at 9th street and Maryland avenue southwest, where the 1 cars were left while the engine was de- j tached and sent off in the direction of the Long bridge. The cars remained on the I crossing several minutes and congested traffic badly. This Is the condition of af fairs in the vicinity of the railroad tracks in South Washington at present, and some thing ought to be done to remedy things at once. The railroad company is a powerful corporation, but the laws of our elty, if properly executed, are more powerful. Therefore, as was suggested in The Star's editorial, let citizens as well as policemen loofe upon this obstruction nuisance as a personal matter, and make an immediate report whenever there is a violation of law If properly fined for overy offense the rail road people will soon take the matter In hand and remedy things to the satisfactoin of all concerned. T. A. BURNS. A Caution to Parents and Teachertt. To the Kdltor of The Evening Star: Last Saturday, while driving along one of the wildest sections of the District, sur rounded by thick woods and dark ravines, fully half a mile from human habitation, I met three little school girls, ranging from ten to fourteen years of age. They were in search of chestnuts, or anything else, ap parently, worth taking. They were evi dently of resectable parentage, yet were miles away fr?mi home. With some diffi culty I induced ihem to abandon their ex cursion and ride cityward with me. It appears that a "nature study trip*' with their class and tether last spring is what led to the Idea of this outing, with maternal -sanction. As a faithful parent 1 was ap palled at such indiscretion, and sent earnest messages to mothers I may never see hv those little ones. This is written to remind parents and teachers alike of one of their many respon sibilities and to help preserve the fair fame of the nation's capital. I trust none are so obtuse as to fail to see the Impropriety of allowing such children to wander unpro tected. u B Samuel Henson was today sent to jail for six months by Judge Kimball from the Police Court for the larceny of a bicycle valued at from Gus Brenlnger. Hen son claimed to have procured the wheel from a man whom the police authorities will try to find, and should they be suc cessful a new trial will be granted.

At the October meeting the certificate of reappointment of B. Pickman Mann, Mrs. Lucy S. Dooiittle and Louis Stern, for three years, was iaid before the board. A com mittee, consisting of Win. J. Miller, Mrs. Lucy S. Dooiittle, Mrs. M. L. D. Macfar land, John F. Cook and J. B. T. Tupper, was empowered to represent the board in matters of legislation desired. The secre tary was instructed to furnish the board of charities with an itemized statement of the subjects contemplated in the estimates for administrative expenditures of the board for the fiscal year 1902. Four hundred ex tra copies of the recently submitted annual report of the board were ordered to be printed. Authority was given to secure ad ditional room for the office of the board. It was ordered that provision should be made In indenture contracts for the pay ment of funeral expenses by the foster par ents in case any ward die in a foster home after being there two years. These con tracts are to be amended also by substi tuting In them the title of the board of charities for the title of the superintendent of charities. Notice was received that the Orphans' Court had sanctioned an adoption to which the board had given its consent previously. Monthly Report*. The monthly reports of the agents showed that sixteen children had been committed permanently and nine temporarily to the custody of the board during September, and three had been held temporarily jnder gen eral authority. For the first quarter of the present fiscal year fifty-seven have been committed permanently, making an av erage rate of 228 for this year, as com pared with I'M for the preceding year. Tho whole number of permanent wards is now <!77, of whom 145 are in Institutions at beard, 114 in boarding homes, eight in free institutions, and 377 in free homes. Thirty three are caring for themselves. October 1 the number on the temporary rolls was twelve. The physician's report showed flf ty-one visits to sixteen children and the death of two infants in September. Matters concerning the relations of indi vidual wards and the presentation of bills for services and supplied were considered. Most of the details in regard to the wards in their Individual relations are considered by the executive committee of five members, whose meetings are separate, and whose <%nclu3ions are, as a rule, accepted by the board.

Appleby was so badly hurt that he was removed to a Baltimore hospital for treat ment. Carter is also said to be In bad shape. Poole was this afternoon brought to Rockville by Deputy Sheriff Howard White and lodged In jail. The cutting occurred at the home of Mr. Appleby. It is charged that Poole, while under the Influence of liquor, visited the home of Appleby, and while there made threats Against Appleby's sisters. The young ladles appealed to their brother for protection, and he and Poole became en gaged in a mix up. Carter, who was in the house at the time, went to Appleby's assistance. The unoccupied house of Wm. H. Rabbltt, near the center of Rockville, was, about 10 o'clock last night, discovered to be on fire. The prompt work of the volunteer I fire company not only saved the Rabbltt. building from total destruction, but also saved several adjoining buildings. It Is confidently believed the fire was the work ot incendiaries, as there were evidences that coal oil was used and two men or boys were seen to leave the building just as th? fire was discovered.
