and Gen. Guiseppe Garibaldi, the apostles
of liberty. She said, in part:
"That every civilized country revered and
honcft-ed some patriot c'.tizen who had battled
for national liberty. In the United
States our hero was George Washington,
called affectionately 'the father of his country.'
In Kngland it was Oliver Cromwell. In
Italy It is Gen. Guiseppe Garibaldi. Strangely
enough Gen. Garibaldi was born on July
4. 1807, our birthday of national Independence.
His Birthplace.
"George Washington was born in the quiet
agricultural district of bid Virginia and was
a student and civil engineer; Garibaldi in
Nipe, Italy, and was a venturesome fisherman.
Washington was a self-controlled
man. enduring the hardships of campaign
with his men. but always laying the foundations
of a stable government.
"While Garibaldi loved liberty, he loved
adventure quite as much. At one time he
was condemned to death for conspiring with
Mazzlni, and only evaded the sentence by
escaping to South America on a sailing vessel,
where he aided an insurrection and became
the hero of Montevideo. About 1.H4A
he went to Rome to aid Mazzini In the establishment
of an Italian republic, but the
effort was badly planned, and he escaped
to the United States and was, in 1850, a
great hero.
"Later he ventured to the island of
Caplna, ofT the rocky coast of Sardinia,
which was his home for the rest of his life.
He procured the annexation to Italy of
beautiful Sicily, and again tried to liberate
Rome, but unsuccessfully, and was imprisoned.
but later pardoned and released.
"When the government of Italy by the
church was overthrown, and when Rome
became the capital of the I'nited Italy. Garibaldi.
then nearly seventy years of age,
took his seat In the Italian parliament, and
he died In his island home in 1882, .well
loved, well honored by the world, and especially
by his countrymen, but in fact lie
had ittle to do In the emancipation of Italy.
"Our Washington controlled the doatinv
of this great country in its infancy, and he
was not only a general, but our President
for eight years. He was a soldier, statesman.
citizen, "first in war. first in peace,
first in the hearts of his countrymen.' "
Value of Washington's Example.
"The Educational Value of Washington's
Example" was the subject of a liberty talk
by Mr. Josiah Millard at the Madison
public school building. H?th and G streets
northeast, yesterday. He said, in part:
"In every relation of life the man whose
character the peq^ile of i.ie country are
celebrating today was a model. As a sori,
a brother, a husband, a business man, a
legislator, a military commander, a ruler
of his countrymen, George Washington met
at all times and under all circumstances
the obligations of his position. He was
born in Westmoreland county, Virginia, the
22d of February, 1732 When he was yet a
little child ten years old his father died, and
he was left to the sole care of his mother.
His education was limited to instruction in
religious and social duties, and to the most
simple and necessary branches of Knowledge.
When he was eighteen years old lie
was employed by Lord Fairfax as a surveyor.
When he was nineteen he entered
the service of the colony of Virginia as
an adjutant gneral, with the rank of major.
Soon after he became the lieutenant colonel
of a Virginia regiment, and a little later
was promoted to the rank of colonel?a position
in which he won fame by his splendid
defense of Fort Necessity against the attacks
of the French and TnHinno
Aid on Braddock's Staff.
"At the age of twenty-three he was a
trusted aid-de-camp of Gen. Braddock, and
in that capacity established his reputation
as a great military genius. He was in
consequence made commander-in-chief of
all the forces of Virginia. During the next
three years he was engaged in protecting
the frontiers of Virginia. But after the
capture of Fort Duquesne he retired to iiis
estate at Mount Vernon and was soon afterward
married to Mrs. Custis. a wealthy
widow. He served for several years as a
member of the Virginia legislature, and in
1774. when he was forty-two years old, was
elected a member of the First Congress, of
which he became the president. This hodv
was composed of the greatest men ever
producd in this or any other country. It
met at Carpenters' Hall, in Philadelphia,
and issued addresses to the people of England,
Ireland, Canada and Jamaica, and to
the King of England, in which the claims
and grievances of the colonies were ably set
forth and the principles afterward embodied
in the Declaration of Independence as the
axioms and definitions of free society clearly
"In 1775 Congress elected him 'general
and commander-in-chief of the armies of
the United Colonies, and all the forces now
raised or to be raised by them.'
"For eight years he guided the armies of
the colonies in their struggle for independence,
and was practically the leader and
ruler of the new nation. But ha\^ng finished
the great work, on the 4th of December,
178;?, he met the assembled officers of the
army at a hotel in New York city and bade
them an affectionate farewell. Fifteen days
later, at Annapolis, where Congress was
then in session, he formally resigned to
that body the-eommission which he had so
long and so gloriously borne, and returned
to private life at Mount Vernon.
"But the American people soon again had
need of his guiding hand in public affairs.
They had won their independence with his
aid, and they required that aid again in
preserving it.
Chosen as Delegate.
"In 1787. therefore, the legislature of
Virginia elected him one of its delegates to
the convention to be held in Philadelphia
for devising a plan for a more perfect
union of the new states. He attended that
convention and was made its president. In
this capacity he exerted great influence In
framing the federal Constitution. And as
soon as the Constitution had been ratified
by the states all America looked to him as
the first President .of the United States
under its provisions. He was elected to
that office unanimously, and the 30th of
April, 1789, began his first administration.
He served two terms as President, and was
succeeded by John Adams in 1797, who, in
the following year, appointed him commander-in-chief
of all the land forces of
the United States. This was done In anticipation
of a war with France; but fortunately
such a war was averted. *
"Washington died at Mount Vernon the
14th of December, 1790 in the sixty-eighth
year of his age, and was burled on the
yrounus w ms esiaie. mousanas or people
annually visit Mount Vernon to view his
"The American people named their capital
city in his honor, and monuments and statues
have been erected here and in many
other cities to perpetuate the memory of
his virtues and Inspire in the people the
desire to emulate his example. The anniversary
of his birth has been made a national
holiday, and the Important part of
our duty here Is to draw some lesson of
value from the story of his life. What ran
we learn from that story? We cannot
hope, p?rhaps no man can hope in the future,
to be his equal in all things?to be the
greatest patriot, the greatest general', the
greatest statesman of his race. But in the
vital point of his character, th? keynote of
his life, without which even Washington
might have been either a failure or a
scourge, every one of us may approach him
and walk on a level with him.
"That cardinal point of Washington's
character was unswerving integrity?honesty
of thought, speech and action. This
point is well presented in Chief Justice
Marshall's eulogy on Washington.
Study of His Character.
"Let us studv the charac' ;r of w*?tiin?.
ton. and strive to imbibe those principles
which guided his life and that of his compatriots?truth,
loyalty to the Constitution,
fidelity to duty, love of liberty, respect for
the rights of others and reverence for law.
Let us learn these things, and take them
earnestly to heart?frame our own lives in
accordance with them; teach them to all
Americans; and strive especially to Impress
! them upon those strangers in our midst
who make the laws that govern us; to the
end that they, too. may be actuated by the
benign spirit of Washington in dealing with
the people of the city which bears his name
and give them the right of local self-government."
Sunday School Boys Celebrate.
The boy students of 8t. Patrick's Academy
celebrated Washington's birthday anniversary
yesterday afternoon by holding exer
clses of a patriotic nature at the academy
building, loth and Q streets northwest. The
feature of the celebration waa a one-act
play, "The Noble Spy." "which was well
acted by the boys of the high school department.
Among the characters protrayed
were Gen. Washington, Nathan Hale and
Gens. Heath and Clinton.
The juniors of the academy song "America"
and recited "Washington's Farewell
to His Army." As their share of the en
tertatnment the members of the primary
department recited "George Washington"
and sang the "U. S. A.," with a drill. The
exercises were carried out under the personal
supervision of Dr. Stafford. Father
Burke of Emmittsburg was an interested
spectator. Other guests included members
of St. Patrick's faculty and clergy, girls of
the school and parents and friends. The
hall was beautifully decorated.
Following was the cast of characters in
"The Noble Spy:" Gen. Washington, Paul
Ramsdell; Gen. Heath, Thomas Robinson;
Gen. Clinton, Quitman Beckley; Capt.
Nathan Hale, Alfred Wilkinson; provost
marshal, Charles Cannon; American officers,
Henry Brooks. Walter Hines, Irwin
Barbour; British officers, Roland Morrison,
Andrew Morris, George Hill, Bernard Donn;
British citizens. Hugh Fegan, George Degnan,
Lee Town send; soldiers, Thomas Cos
tu. William Sebastian. Frank Lyons. George
Chambers and George Sam.
Alfred Wilkinson as Nathan Hale received
generous applause. Paul Ramsdell as
Gen. Washington excited great enthusiasm
by his good personation of the renowned
commander. Quitman Beckley and Thomas
Robinson deserve special mention. All the
characters were perfectly interpreted and
each was sustained very creditably. A flag
drill, the "Star Spangled Banner" and "Sa- i
lute the Flag" were exceptionally well done
by the youthful performers, and brought j
to a close a most interesting program.
Dr. Stafford complimented the boys and
took the occasion to teach a lesson in
Jones' School Program.

Bill for the Incorporation of Local
Senator Gallinger offered a resolution in
the Senate yesterday afternoon requesting
the House of Representatives to return to i
the Senate Senate bill 6906, to provide for
the incorporation of banks in the District
of Columbia. This resolution was unanimously
agreed to. It was the result of the
protest that has been made by men prominent
in financial circles against the legislation.
Members of the Washington stock exchange
and others have been active in opposing
this bill, and although they had assurances
that the bill would not be reported
to the House from the District
committee they still desired to offset the
prestige given to the proposition by its passage
by the Senate. In order to counteract
thp pffppt nf that nftinn \fr Hallinp-pr nf.
fered his resolution yesterday, and it was
The bill was opposed as ruinous to brokerage
houses and private bankers, who would
be obliged to incorporate with a capital of
not less than $100,000. In the case of a
branch house of a member of the New York
stock exchange the old methods of doing
business would have to be abandoned. No
corporation can be a member of the New
York stock exchange, and according to the
proposed law no individual or firm could
conduct a brokerage business in this city.
Thomas L. Hume, president of the Washington
stock exchange, appointed a committee
consisting of R. H. Lynn. E. B. Cottrell,
J. Thilman Hendrick and Griffin Halstead,
all of whom, with Cot. Colin H. Livingston
of the American National Bank, have been
active in presenting the objections to tlie
legislation of the Washington brokers.

relative to the number of employes in the
health service." their names, salaries, and
everything pertaining to the operation of
his "department, which information was
called for by a resolution introduced by
Senator Gallinger last Monday. The report
forwarded by Dr. Woodward today is
brilliant in its brevity, reviewing in a condensed
and more clear form, the same information
contained in his first report,
which consisted of thirty-seven typewritten
The report is purely statistical. It shows
that at the present time there are only
sixty-five regular employes in the health
service,, and their total yearly compensation
is $(!3,276. However, they do not include
the inspectors employed at certain
times during the year when necessity requires
it; watchmen in the employment of
the contagious disease service who are only
employed when actually watching cases,

laborers. He makes it plain, though, that
the District is taxed very little in paying
this class of men during a year.
In showing the number of regular employes
and their salaries and duties, Dr.
Woodward arranges his report as follows:
Supervision, including the health officer,
chief clerk, chief inspector and chief of
the contagious disease service, $0,690; clerical
force, seven men, $7,400; inspection
service, $35,200; pound service, $3,400;
janitor and messenger service, $1,140, and
contagious disease service, $6,426.
