Wiliard's Contribution to Firemen's Coffee Fund. Mr. C. C. Willard, owner of the Hooe building, in which the fire occurred Sunday night, today sent to Chief Engineer Wm. T. Belt of the fire department a check for $30 for the coffee fund established by Commis sioner Macfarland last year to meet the need not otherwise provided for of supply ing coffee and sandwiches to the members of the fire department at large fires, espe cially In inclement weather. The check has been turned over to Commissioner Macfar land. There is no official fund for this pur pose and Mr. Wiliard's check is the first contribution that Commissioner Macfarland has received for the coffee fund th.s sea son, but there Is a balance remaining from contributions made last season. Commis sioner Macfurland states that he will be glad to receive further contributions for this fund. In this winter weather it is par ticularly valuable to the fire department, and especially at night. Before the fund was established the fire men. at large fires, where they might be soaked with water and chilled with cold, had no means of getting hot coffee and food on the spot, or even after returning to their fire stations, and the temptation to use the alcoholic stimulants forbidden by the regulations was great. It Is considered that the comfort, health and efficiency of the members of the department have been im proved by the arrangement made to supply their needs Jn this respect. Mr. Willard In his communication heartily commends the fire department for its promptness and efficiency, and, among other things^ said: "1 have been Informed that at least one of the companies was well on its way to the fire which occurred at the Hooe building Sunday night. December 27. even before the alarm had been received, showing the great I anxiety manifested by the department for the protection of property. It gives me pleasure to tbank you for your promptness on this occasion. M ?-i ? NEW PASTOR WELCOMED. Large Number of Residents Greet Rev.

To tbi- Kdltor'of Tb? Kvoiilug Star: Permit m<* to sify a word for the skaters of Washington ? I noticed in The Star last evening whfrre the Commissioners had given orders to have the Ice broken up in the so celled tidal baslu to prevent the repetition ot the std accident of last winter. I wonder If the Commissioners and the public fully .un derstand how this accident occurred. It Is a well-known fact that the skaters last winter had to provide their own way of get ting on and off the Ice. In the form of a small piece of board, just long enough to reach from shore to the solid ice. After reaching the ice. there was no danger, but when the time came to get off twenty-five or more people gathered In a bunch at the end of this little board and several feet from the water's edge or broken ice. made so by the tide going out and coming In. Is It a wonder that people were drowned when such a state of affairs existed? No provi sion or protection is afforded for the skaters of Washington, while other cities, east and north, give their special attention to the matter. Had two officers even been B. H.

Now this serious danger has been over come by the two bridges that run from the shore forty or fifty feet to the bath ing floats, while the Ice is perfectly safe at all times when thick enough for skat ing. These bridges are Just what the skaters of Washington have wished and hoped for. There is absolutely no danger ft?r any one now going on and off the ice In the tidal basin. The Commissioners several winters ago received a petition of 500 signers, asking for protection and consideration. They gave us police pro tection. stopped the boAts from running through the basin, bieaklng up the ice. provided lumber to make gangways to get on the Ice, and no one even got wet from skating there that winter. But since then the official attention given us has grown less each winter, notwith standing the ice for skating has im proved und lasts longer each winter. And now with all those improvements over the past the Commissioners seem anx ious to prevent the people of Washington from skating' when there are excellent op portunities for doing so by breaking up a beautiful piece of ice in the basin. We liave never had any better in years gone by. How much better It would be to put two officers at the basin, permitting peo ple to go on when there Is good skating, than to drive them away to seek other places far more dangerous? Why, if the Po tomac freexes over they will go right out there, for you cannot prevent or stop skat ers from seeking Ice. especially when they are driven by desperation. Let us hope that the Commissioners will rescind this order and permit the people to use this basin for skating, with the plan suggested. Give us one or two officers to keep order, and I will venture to say there will not be one accident of any kind. W. L. WILKERSON. Consumption Camp for Naval Patients. A dispatch from Pensacola, Fla., last night says: The Navy Department recently decided to make a test of the open-air treatment of consumption. After examining various lo calities it selected Warrington, near the navy yard, as the best location. Six pa tients are now under treatment at the camp for naval consumptives, located three weeks ago, and so far all are showing im provement. If the camp should prove satisfactory it will be made a permanent institution. The patients are compelled to sleep In tents and are required to be In the fresh air as much as possible. About twenty-five additional patients will be directed to go to the camp for treatment in the uext few weeks. DEATH OF CAPT. IVES. Succumbed to a Complication of Dis eases at Oarfleld Hospital. Capt.

Greene, an electrical engineer of Detroit, Mich., lias perfected an invention .to prevent railroad collisions. The device, he says, has been adopted by several com panies. Both head-on and rear-end collisions can be prevented by wireless telegraphy, ac cording to Mr. Greene. The device con sists of an Instrument which is placed on the top of the locomotive cat) and Instantly notifies the engine driver as soon an an other locomotive or train approaches on the same track within a mile. By wireless telegraphy the approach of the other train is discovered by the extinguishing of a white light In the cab, the lighting of a red light and the ringing of a bell in case the danger Is In front. If the approaching train Is in the rear the white light disappears. a blue light Is turned on and a bell rings. In addition to these safety devices the instrument records the approach of a train on a tape rscord, which gives the time of the registering. Horses Die From Azaturia. A dispatch from New York last night says: Azaturia. a spinal disease, is common among horses In Jersey City.
