Northeast Citizens' Association In dulges in Criticism. Further objections to certain details in the plans for the construction of the new union station were developed at the meet ing of the Northeast Citizens' Association Monday evening. Many speeches were made in criticism of the railroad companies, which were alleged to have violated their promises to the government in several phases of the work of construction of the new terminal and its approaches. Mr. Tucker, the president of the association, addressed the meeting at some length on this topic. He expressed the belief that the railroads are adopting a penurious policy, which will militate against the beauty of the great building. "They told us." ho said, "they were going to erect a handsome car shed that would cover with Its arch thirty-six tracks. Now we are told they will have little separate train sheds, against the roofs of which the coal smoke will rise only to descend again and fill our eyes and mouths." Sharp criticism was Indulged in of the policy of the engineer department of the District in the narrowing of many of the city 8 streets. A resolution was intro duced by Mr. Sowerbutts calling upon Congress to insert in the act covering appropriations for work on the streets of the city during the fiscal year of 1905 a provision forbidding the narrowing of the roadways of any Improved streets. The action of the engineer department in reducing the width of a number of streets from thlrty-flve feet to thirty feet met with the severe condemnation of a large number of those present. A motion made by Mr. Fleming, which was adopted, provided for correspondence with the several other citizens' associa tions of the District, soliciting their co operation and aid in having a better quality of gas furnished throughout the The meeting instructed Dr. Walter to f"d.ea,\or have the police to require that the gates be kept open at the 7th of the s-? inroad ? .1!? . rAt Pr?8*11*. ???. Walter stated, on the information contained in several complaints forwarded to him, those gates are closed down after 11 o'clock at night and remain closed until the next morn ?h?? ri' T88 h?ld that thls woul<3 prevent the ready access of fire engines to that section of the city in case of need .?! k me?tln? adopted a motion asking the board of assessors to send to the secretary a list of all property in the District enjoying exemption from C t on because of its ownership by educa na ? religious or charitable institu tions. The association is opposed to the exemption of any real property from tax ation for any reason. Army Leaves. Leaves of absence have been granted as follows: Oapt. Alfred W.

Roofing Felt Used Temporarily. Workmen are employed in covering the roofs of the fourteen sets of new quarters for officers at the Washington barracks with roofing felt to protect the interior of the buildings from the weather. These new quarters are built along the western side of the barracks park overlooking the harbor and are handsome buildirigs. They have been completed and ready for the roofing slate for several weeks, but for some rea son the slate did not arrive, and they are to be covered by the felt. Four of the build ings have been covered and the work is being pushed on the others. It is stated that the interior work on these buildings will be shoved ahead during the winter as far as possible.

Tribute to Late John B-. Procter, Who Was to Have Made Address. The late president of the civil service com mission, John R. Procter, whose funeral is to be held this afternoon from St. John's Episcopal Church, was to have addressed the Unity Club (1<J74) at the Riggs House Monday night. The subject of the address he was to mane was "Intemaffonal Break ers In Sight." It was thought upon Mr. Procter's death that he had probably written his address, but on Inquiry It was found that he had not. Mr. John T. Doyle, secretary of the civil service commission, was substituted for him. Mr. Doyle read a paper on "The Civic Righteousness of Washington." He prefaced his reading by saying the very fact that Mr. Procter was to .have apokun to the club that evening showed the many sided phases of his activity. Mr. Procter was. he sa'.d. a close student of Interna tional relations, a contender for higher and more intelligent aspirations among the oeo ple, and as a man desiring commercial free dom was opposed to isolation and commer cial restriction. The speaker said Mr. Procter's greatest work was at the head of the civil service commission. The evening's entertainment Included a musical program, rendered by Mrs. J. H. Steele. Miss Katherine Dunkhorst, Dr. R. L. Klemm. Miss Mary E. Wild and Miss Lillian Royce. Collector Cruzen's Conduct.

R. Cruzen, the collector of customs in Porto Rico. WHAT AND WHY. Why should substitutes for Scott's Emulsion be refused? Because they do not begin to offer the equivalent of food value contain ed in Scott's Emulsion. Why should special care be taken to avoid so-called wines, cordials and extracts of cod liver oil? Because they contain a large per centage of alcohol and afford only temporary stimulation. Does not Scott's Emulsion also stimulate the body? Yes, but it is stimulation through nourishment. What vital food principle is in volved in the action of Scott's Emul sion? Direct and perfect nourishment without tax on the stomach. We'll seod yon a sample free upon request.
