Depositing of Refuse on Vacant Lot
Declared to Be Unlawful.
The depositing of sweepings from the
streets and refuse from the markets on a
vacant lr?t at 1?tth Anrl "R Strppt* SOllthwe.St.
at the request of Mr. H. Clay Jones, about
which much complaint has been made to the
Commissioners, was declared unlawful by
Health Officer Woodward today. In one of
the complaints forwarded to the Commissioners
the writer stated that the odor from
the lot was intolerable, and he attributes
the high prevalence of typhoid In the District
to this condition. It Is also pointed
out In a complaint that this lot Is close to
the Southern freight depot and that here is
a possibility that the fumes from this refuse
come In contact with the cans of milk at
the depot.
Superintendent Twohey of the street
cleaning department, who was directed by
the Commissioners to make a report upon
the condition complained of, stated that
several years ago a verbal arrangement was
made by the street cleaning officials with
Mr. Jones whereby the latter agreed to furnish
the department with one wagon and
nno nort without cost. for the Dumose of
removing hand sweepings from the streets,
In consideration of which the street cleaning
department was to deliver to him at 1
such dumps as he might provide the sweepings
gathered by the wagons within a certain
radius. Mr. Twohey reported that this
arrangement waa abrogated last summer
and nothing to his knowledge has been
dumped on the lot since then. He concluded
his report by saying, "inasmuch as the
material on the lot in question is the property
of Mr. Jones, if it is decided to serve
a notice upon him or the owner of the land
to remove the refuse, my department will
not be disturbed or put to any inconvenience."
One of the health Inspectors who visited
this lot reported that the complaint was
justifiable. According to him the filth was
piled up in some places on the lot as high
as fifteen feet. Dr. Woodward in reporting
upon the case to the Commissioners recommended
that Mr. Jones be given a staled
time in which to remove the refuse com
plained of and if this is not complied with,
suggested that a prosecution should follow.
Commlsioner Macfarland, to whom the matter
has been referred for a recommendation
for final disposition, will make a decision
In the case some time this week.

Upon arriing at the seminary a searcl

the suspect, but owing to the darkness th<
bullets went wide of the mark. He als(

3 John Lee Brooks on "Education That
\ Hits the Mark."
By special Invitation the men of Calvary
J Baptist Church met with the Vaughn Class
1 Club last night to hear an address by the
n# * V. ~ ?1.. Vv Tnkn T na PrArtlrc
v jvc pi caiucm ui mc uuu, uuiiii ucc uiw?c
of the Business High School, on "Education
That Hits the Mark." About fifty persons
were present, and the address followed
the regular business of the club.
The committee on the approaching concert
to be given In November reported progress.
Victor Mintor, chairman of the lookout
committee, reported that during the past
month his committee had made ninety-one
calls upon young men. The relief committee
reported several visits to the sick members.
It was declared that the general af1
fairs of the club were never In a more flourishing
condition. Fourteen new members
were initiated.
Mr. Brooks defined true education from
1 the scientific point of view, in the words of
i Herbert Spencer, "as preparation for com1
plete living." Hhis view regards the child
as a living organism, with certain native
power and capability of hand, head and
' heart, to be trained for self-support, prac'
tlcal efficiency and self-control.
The speaker stated that he himself was
' a product of the old classical education,
* supplemented by scientific training, and ap'
predated to the full the Importance to professional
men of the classical training.
Mr. Brooks called attention to the changing
social and economical conditions of the
" age, which demand a more practical kind
tirtn in thp wirrlpiiliim and grading
! of the grammar and high schools supported
t by public taxation for the greater mass of
, the American people. He ranked the public
schools of Washington among the best in
the country, and especially commended the
" practical training of such schools as the
, McKlnley and Armstrong Manual Training
' schools, the Business High School and night
J schools. From the fact that only about 4
per cent of those who enter the American
j grammar schools pass through the high
; schools and only about one in two hundred
ever graduate from college, the speaker ar1
gued that the graded schools are the main
[ dependence in preparing the young people
5 for American citizenship.
The vast majority of American children.
I he said, never get beyond the grammar
B schools, and therefore they should not be
' given all the aspirations of professional
' men, but they should be given ambitions
that would coincide with their probable
life work, and Instead of being taught
"dead lumber" should be given something
that would be of use to them in their after
1 lives. The speaker emphasized the impor>
tance of strong personality and high moral

Danger of Flood in Richmond Over For
the Present.
A dispatch from Richmond last night says:
Heavy damage to real estate and merchandise
in the submerged district, the extent of
which cannot be intelligently estimated at
this time; the loss of thousands of dollars to
manufacturers and merchants by the inundation
of industrial plants and wholesale
and retail stores; thousands of dollars' loss
in trade to retail merchant? in lower Main,
Franklin, Cary and 17th streets, in the sub
uitri jjui null ui me oiiucauc vmiey tinu
in the low-lying' districts of Fulton, whose
places of business are closed; temporary
suspension of traffic in the flooded streets,
inconvenience and expense to the patrons
of the street railway lines, whose business
compelled them to make use of the improvised
ferry systems which are in operation
in the inundated streets; several thousand
dollars paid out by merchants for the
removal of goods and machinery to temporary
storage out of reach of the encroaching
waters?such is the record of the
high water in Richmond, which reached its

The water In the streets was falling at
midnight, but two hours later began to
rise, creeping steadily but slowly until it
reached its deepest point at 5 o'clock. At
that time there was four feet of water In
17th and Franklin streets.
The freshet began to recede from Main
street about 0 o'clock this morning. Many
of the principal business houses between
15th and 17th streets on Main are, however,
still flooded on the lower floors. The Main
street entrance to the union station was inaccessible
early this moaning, the muddy
water having spread across the street at
that point to a depth of several inches.
Travelers entered and left- the station by
means of the 15th street entrance.
It Is a remarkable incident, said K. L.
Clemeta, a merchant, who has been in the
shoe business In this block for many years,
"that these freshets almost Invariably come
on Sunday. I cannot recall a freshet In
twenty years that crept Into Main street In
the middle of the week. Invariably the high
water made an appearance in the street on
Saturday night or early Sunday morning."
Samuel Lecler and Samuel Eisner, with a
wagon belonging to the Beaufont Lithla
Company, won a reputation as philanthropists
by carrying men, women and children
who were on their way to work in the shops
and factories across the water free of
charge. Lecler transported more than 700
persons, without pay. Throughout the day
fare was taken in the Beaufont wagon only
from those people who declined to ride free.
People on the street cars were given transportation
from one side of the water to the
other. The street railway did not put on a
ferry line because it had been advised that

Since Sunday morning the river has been
falling- steadily at Columbia. At 10 o'clock
this morning it had fallen nine feet. The
highest point reached by the water at
Columbia was 31 7-10 feet from 6 to 10
o'clock this morning. This is probably the
highest point reached by the river here during
the night. Richmond received last night
the heaviest rainfall reported anywhere in
the country. A total of 2.06 Inches fell here.
No rainfall is reported along the coast, ex
uepc at nuriun, wnere .92 oi an men ieu. i
The gauge at Columbia now is less than
twenty feet and falling.
The river tonight is falling steadily, and
it is believed that no further trouble is to
be anticipated.

away another stove. As Jackson Was
not around he was not connected with that
