Its Suppression the Subject of Deiatje Today. ill ft' RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED se A n REPORT OF EDUCATIONAL BOARD TO BAPTSST ASSOCIATION. Considerable Time Given Last Night to the Race Problem?Other Mat ters Considered. "The Suppression of the Liquor Traffic" was the first topic brought up for discus sion at this morning's session of the twenty-ninth annual meeting of the Co lumbia Association of Baptist Churches, which is in progress at the Second Bap tist Church, corner of 4th street and Vir ginia avenue southeast. The report from the committee which had this question under consideration was made by C. N. Richards, chairman. After some con sideration the report, which contained the usual recommendations for suppress ing the sale of strong drink, was adopted by the association. The report of the educational board, Chairman George E. Truett, was next heard. It urged better education for min ters. This was also adopted. The remainder of the meeting this morn ing was taken up with a discussion of the report of the committee on Bible and tract distribution, R. R. West chairman. An ad dress was made by the secretary of the American Baptist Publication Society, Dr. A. J. Roland of Philadelphia. In connec tion with this subject a resolution was in troduced to the effect that "we recommend that a campaign of education In the study of the Bible be inaugurated." The resolution was discussed until 12:'M o'clock, when a recess was taken for lunch. Those taking part in the discussion were Dr. J. J. Muir, pastor of the Temple Bap tist Church, Dr. Samuel H. Greene of the Calvary Baptist Church, Dr. Charles F. Winbigler of the First Baptist Church, and Rev. R. R. Riedel of Hyattsville. The resolution was adopted just before the recess was taken. Luncheon Served. The two or three hundred persons pres ent at the meeting were invited to remain and take lunch In an adjoining room of the church, where long tables groaning with good things to eat had been prepared. The delegates and visitors were served in re lays, 150 pet sons at one time. The meal put all in high spirits, and rendered them readier than ever to get back to work at the afternoon session, which began at 2 o'clock. During the recess and after the luncheon several committees had meetings prepara tory to making reports at the meeting. At both sessions today Mr. Percy S. Fos ter, the moderator, was in the chair. The opening prayer this morning was made by Rev. W. S. O. Thomas. At the afternoon session Rev. J. Compton Ball delivered an address, after which the association continued with Its business. There will be a meeting of the association in the church at 7:45 o'clock this evening, and three meetings tomorrow. The Race Problem. The race problem was discussed briefly yesterday evening. Rev. J. W. Many, repre senting the Home Missionary Society of New York, dwelt up?n the importance of the missionary work in America, claiming that the redemption of the world rested upon the efforts of the American people. He said that $750,000- was needed to carry on the home work this coming year, and that it would be used principally among the colored people. Rev. William E. Hatcher, an evangelist of t'ie Home Mission Society of Atlanta, declare.! that It was his belief that the salvation of the negro rested with the southern people, who, he said, under stand the race. The report of the executive board, which was received yesterday afternoon, urged entrance into new fields of work In the District. Ecklngton was said to be ready for a church, as the children of Baptist parents in that section are now Joining with other denominations for the reason that there Is no Baptist church there. Dr. Samuel H. Greene, in a report from a subcommittee of the board, stated that a committee from Ecklngton was now In con sultation with members of the Calvary Baptist Church, with a view to purchasing property for the erection of a new church. Substance of Reports. According to further reports, the current expenses of the churches for the year were $46,170.81; the estimated value of church property, $732,000; benevolences for the year, $78,070.47; contributions from the Sun day schools, $7,122.17; the number of scholars in the Sunday schools, 5,040, and the total number of church members, 5,700. Reports from missionary churches were made through Rev. H. E. Geren of Ana rostia, Rev. R. E. Rieder of Hyattsville, Md.; Rev. Theopolus Bray of Hynesboro Park, Md., and Robert L. Smith of the Maryland Avenue Church of this city. CLOSED TO BREWERS. Authorities Will Not Permit Beer to Pass Through Military Reservation. Acting on the advice of Judge Advocate General Davis, the Secretary of War has denied an application from a brewing com pany for permission to land beer, etc., for certain bar rooms near the military reser vation at Fort Washington, Md., on the government wharf at that post. This ac tion was taken simply with a view of pre venting the transportation of beer and liquors through the military reservation and not with the expectation of stopping the sale of liquors in the bar rooms just outside the military reservation at Fort Washington. The military authorities have no juris diction whatever outside the limits of the land occupied by the garrison, and, al though they are not willing to encourage the sale of liquors to the soldiers, they re alize that their action In closing the wharf to the liquor dealers will not prevent their getting their supplies in other ways. The first step was taken yesterday when the transportation companies, whose steamers land at the wharf at Fort Wash ington, were notified that they would not on and after today be allowed to land any packages of Intoxicants on the wharf, and the guards have'been Instructed to see that the order is obeyed. The steamboat com panies here this morning refused to receive shipments of beer and liquors consigned to parties who reeelve their freight at Fort Washington, and the order has thus had tho effect of temporarily cutting off sup plies. The dealers, of whom there are three or four, will at once arrange to receive sup plies either over, the road from this city, or at other wharves in the vicinity, and tho action of the military authorities will r.ot have a prohibitive effect. There Is some talk of contesting the right of the military authorities to close tho wharf, on tho ground that whllo It is on a military reservation it Is a seml puhllc wharf, from the fact that the grants of the original owners of the land to the government for the fort, specifies that the wharf and public road shall be kept open for all time for the use of the owners of land in the rear of- the reservation and their successors. An official of the War Department states that the order Is Intended to preserve dis cipline. With bar rooms at the gates of Fort Washington, which the military au thorities are powerless to close, and at which the soldiers can obtain liquor at any time, despite orders forbidding their leav ing the reservation, it has been found very difficult at times to keep the discipline of the post up to the standard set by the army regulations. The landing of the liquor on the fort wharf and the carrying of it through the reservation In open wagons looked like the dealers were flaunting It in the faces of the officers, and on the repre sentations of Col. B. K. Baker, command ing at Fort Washington, he was author ized to take the step forbidding the land ing of liquor at the wharf, and the order will be enforced. This may give the deal ers some little trouble, but they will get their supplies as usual. Charged With Blocking Diet rich Indictment. SENSATIONAL FACTS NEBRASKA SENATOR CALLS ON THE PRESIDENT AGAIN TODAY. New Phase of the Situation, Where Justice Seems to Have Had Her Eyes Wide Open. The rather sensational fact has developed that Attorney General Knox last June se verely reprimanded District Attorney Sum mers of Nebraska for interfering: to pre vent the grand Jury at Omaha indicting United States Senator Dietrich at that time. The fact was learned today by a representative of The Star that at the hearing given yesterday to Senator Diet rich, Senator Hanna and Editor Rosewater, by Attorney General Knox, the correspond ence between District Attorney Summers and Attorney General Knox was read. This correspondence showed plainly that Mr. Summers, who is now accused by Sena tor Dietrich of using his official position to bring about the indictment and humilia tion of the senator, actually prevented the grand jury making an indictment at that time, interfering to such an extent that he was reprimanded by Ills superior officer. Upon this fact being brought to the at tention of Attorney General Knox today he permitted a copy of the correspondence to be taken. This correspondence, which is herewith presented, puts a new light upon the attitude of District Attorney Summers and apparently acquits him of using his office for the persecution of a man who opposed his reappointment: Letter to Knox. "OMAHA, Neb., June 23, 1903. "The Attorney General, Washington, D. C.: "Sir: I have the honor to transmit to you herewith the testimony given before the United States grand jury on June 6, 1!MW, by Leopold Hahn. Mr. Hahn is a citizen of Hastings. Adams county, Neb. He was called before the grand jury at the request of members on account of well defined rumors in circulation and charges based thereon as to the violation of section 1781, Revised Statutes of the United States, by Jacob Fisher, who is now postmaster in the city of Hastings. "The testimony, you will see, reflects not only upon Jacob Fisher, the postmaster, but as well upon United States Senator Charles H. Dietrich of Nebraska, "The grand jurors insisted upon making a thorough and searching investigation. This Investigation was discontinued at my request because of the fact that the con duct of a United States senator was in volved in the question they desired to in vestigate. At the same time I stated to the grand jury that the investigation will be made by another grand jury, if it be disclosed subsequently that the ends of Justice demand It. For the purpose of prevailing upon the grand jurors to dis continue the investigation I stated to them I would submit the information to the Department of Justice and ask for direc tion in the premises. With the assistance of the foreman of the grand jury, one of the prominent and influential citizens of the state, I was able to prevail upon the grand jurors to comply with my request. "In this connection permit me to say there are appointments in this state other than the one at Hastings named in the testimony submitted herewith, about which the grand jury manifested a disposition to inquire. No witnesses were examined as to them, however, for the same reason given above. "I hold myself in readiness to follow any direction you may give me. "Permit me to say the testimony here with submitted would have been placed be fore you at an earlier date had it not been that the clerk in this office was engaged in court, taking the testimony in the cases of the United States against Morris and the United States against Linnier, wherein the defendants were charged with murder, and an oialer of court was made by Judge Mc pherson. sitting as trial judge, that the testimony of the witnesses be extended and made a part of the record in these cases without delay. The clerk has, therefore, had scarcely time during the last two weeks in which to attend to the correspond ence of the office. "I remain your obedient servant, "W. 8. SUMMERS. "United States Attorney." Mr. Knox's Answer. "Washington, D. C., June 26, 1008. "W. S. Summers, esq., United States At torney, Omaha, Neb.: "Sir: I have your letter of the 23d in stant, transmitting a copy of testimony given before the United States grand Jury In Omaha on June 0, 1903, by Leopold Hahn, called before the grand Jury at its request, and on account of alleged viola tions of section 1781 of the Revised Stat utes of the United States by Jacob Fisher, now postmaster in the city of Hastings, Neb. In your letter you correctly state that this testimony 'reflects not only upon Jacob Fisher, the postmaster, but as well upon United States Senator Charles H. Dietrioh of Nebraska.' You likewise in your letter state that the investigation by the grand Jury was discontinued art your request, the reasons which prompted you to make such request and the means em ployed in pecuring that end. "In reply I Btate you should not have requested a discontinuance of the investi gation against the grand Jury's insistence because of the fact that the conduct of a United States senator was involved in the question the grand jury desired to in vestigate. From the copy of the proceed ings before the grand Jury it appear* that at the time the testimony closed a most extraordinary and incriminating story had been told by the witness Hahn in which Senator Dietrich was criminally Involved, but the facts which formed the basis of this tale were not of the witness' own knowledge. Fairness to the person thus Incriminated, as well as other con siderations of duty, should have caused you to refrain from interfering with the desire of the Jury to probe the matter to the bottom. I especially disapprove of your carrying your interference with the proper functions of the Jury to the extent of using your promise to submit the mat ter to this department for direction in the premises as an argument in your ef fort to persuade the jury to discontinue their investigation. "Upon the whole, your action in the matter, the end accomplished and the means employed were astonishing, un warranted and highly improper. "Respectfully F. C. KNOX, "Attorney General." Senator Dietrich Calls. Senator Dietrich called on the Presi dent this afternoon and had a long talk with him, but did not have anything to say regarding his Interview. DEATH BY ACCIDENT. Verdict Rendered at Inqueet Over Re mains of Lucy Flynn. An inquest was held at the sixth precinct police station today In the case of the col ored woman, Lucy Flynn, who was fatally injured In the Albemarle apartment house a week ago, and whose death occurred at Freedmen's Hospital two days ago. It was In evidence that the woman had carried some clothing down in the freight elevator and that she was In the basement when she received her injuries. Just how she was hurt is a matter of conjecture. The best information the Jury could obtain showed that the woman had probably been thrown from the freight compartment by the sud den starting of the car. William Cantey, the elevator conductor, was at his post at the time and the acci dent is said to have been caused by no fault of hie. Occupants of apartments in the building told the Jury that Cantey was a capable man and that he was always at tentive to bis duty. It was stated that some trouble had been experienced with the elevator at certain hours of the day Bon Marche. Bon Harche.

Daisy Wilson, a three-year-old colored child, was fatally burned this morning at the home of her parents, 19?i E street northwest. About 8:30 o'clock a call was received at the Emergency Hospital for the ambulance to go to the house. Dr. White accompanied the ambulance and upon reaching the house discovered that there was no hope for the little one. He did what he could to relieve her sufferings and had the driver of the ambulance make a quick run to the hospital. The child lived nearly three hours after the hospital wis reached. John E. Wilson, father of the child, was sick in bed in a room on the second floor of the home and Mrs. Wilson had gone to the store to make some pur chases. She left the babe seated at the breakfast table when she went out. It ts thought the child went over to the stova to get warm after linishing her breakfast, and getting too near the fire her dress came In contact with the hot coals. Her father ran down stairs when he heard her scream ing and extinguished the flames, but not until it was too late to save his daughter's life. Acting Coroner Glazebrook was notified of the affair, and will make an investigation this afternoon. Bird Lovers in Session. PHILADELPHIA.
