Dr. Villoldo's Report on Sanitary Conditions
Dr. Villoldo has made a report to the
marine hospital and public health service on
the yellow fever conditions from a sanitary
point of view in Cienfuegos, Cuba, and
among the American troops near that city.
He says that "the American camp is located
on a small plateau In the outskirts
and to the east of the town, and the military
hospital is within half a mile south of
the camp and nearer the town than the
camu itself. The hO?nitnl shdrpo nno-hnlf
I the building with a private hospital.
"I made a careful Inspection of the whole
town and found it to be In a fair condi:
tion. The streets were very ciean and kept
in good repair, but In a quarter of the town
called Barrio de Matadero the land is almost
on a level with the sea and rains and
refuse water accumulate In pools There
1 is also a large manglar on the shore at the
? foot of Hernan Cortes street. Another part
s of the town near the cemetery is a regular
? swamp and houses in that vicinity have to
be built raised from the ground.
r "There Is no aqueduct In Cienfuegos, and |
many houses have water reservoirs where
they gather the rain water and use it for j
drinking. Some of these tanks are not |
covered; others have a wooded cover with
a hole in the middle about ten by ten
inches, through which the water is said to
be aerated; others were properly covered.''

And That's Not Till Eleven O'Clock
| Fun Starts After Lunch and Is in
Full Blast Bight Now?See
You There?
Didn't forget, did you?
This is Star day at L,una Park, you know.
If vou ditl hannpn to overlook the fact
It isn't too late yet, for, of course, you've
got that $1 worth of coupons in your inside
pocket with a little small change for
car fare and such. The park doesn't close
till 11 o'clock tonight, and the big doings
will be after dusk. So put on your Sunday
go-to-meeting bef>t and come along. You
aren't out of town, vacationing?and its
dollars to doughnuts you'll have a good
The Procession Starts.
Early this morning?that is, if 11 o'clock
be early?Star readers began to drift Lunaward.
To be (juite frank, quite a bunch of
the all-day brigade were on hand when the
gates opened at that hour. They were the
real picnickers, and it was quite apparent
to the most casual glance that they were
provided with everything in the way of
children and pickles and lunch-stuffed shoe
boxes that go to make a day's outing of
this sort particularly enjoyable.
It was plain to see that these early birds
.vere experienced hands. They didn't rush
off to spend just-as-good-as-money coupons
the minute they landed inside of the Luna
boundaries. Not they. Not for a minute.
They did something very much more
sen.j.ble. They picked out a dandy picnic
nook, shady and grassy and comfy in every
way. And then they distributed their be

squatter soverignity held good for the
nonce, and sent the children out to play.
And it was not until after lunch, when
everybody felt physically better and kinder
toward other humans, that they started
out?and by this time they had plenty of
company?to "do" the amusement devices.
Fun Fast and Furious.
Right now?and 'tis pretty near press
time for The Star?the shoot the chute cars
are drifting down the incline every few
moments, the foolish house is full of light
minded folk, the scenic river is all cluttered
up with pleasure-laden craft, the
merry-go-round horses and camels and
other wierd and woozy animals not known
to zoology are tired to death already, and
wind-blown peop'.e are working the ringaround-the-rosy
roiler coaster overtime.
Kven the park managers, who've been
looking forward for a week or more to a
big throng on Star day, were surprised at
the number of early arrivals, an'1, predict
that some attendance records will be broken
before 11 o'clock rolls round and the sleepy
gatekeepers shut up shop and go trotting
off home, mighty glad that tomorrow's
Sunday and a day or comparative rest without
any Star readers to clutter up the
neighborhood. But they just can't help that
frame of mind. Taking tickets makes one
so unsympathetic and pessimistic and
Watch for the Snaps.
Tomorrow, in The Sunday Star, there'll
be some pictures of Star readers having
the best sort of a time. They won't be

disguised so as to blend with the scenery.

Metropolitan Lowest Ever.
NEW YORK, August 31.?Metropolitan
Street Railway stock touched a new low
point yesterday, going to 35, several points
lower than August 17, when It made its
sensational drop of 40 points from the last
previous sale several weeks earlier.
The weakness of the stock was explained
by new rumors of a receivership for the
New York City railway, which guarantees
a 7 per cent dividend on the Metropolitan
stock. Those rumors persisted in spite 01 a
dental of them made by August Belmont
after a directors' meeting a few days ago.
At the close of the market the stock was
a little stronger, recovering to 39. The
sales were 1,400 shares.
"Wave of Crime" Subsides.
NEW YORK, August 31.-When he discharged
the August grand jury in general
sessions yesterday Judge Foster said he
was glad to say that the so-called "wave of

Chicken Thieves Active?Briefs.
The acute situation that was reflected in
numerous protests filed with the Commissioners
of the District within recent periods
upon the part of the citizens of Anacostia
and the adjoining suburbs regarding the
hindrances to the prompt transportation of
street car passengers across thd Anacostia
bridge, due to the enforcement of the regulation
limiting the number of people to be
carried in any one car over the structure,
has been cleared up, apparently to the satisfaction
of the public, and the holding up
of the cars at either end of the bridge,
with the attendant blockade of the line,
has ceased. Present conditions are credited
to the efforts of the railroad company to
relieve the congestion by supplying additional
cars on the line at the hours when |
the travel is greatest.

Bingham May Try to Help Detectives
With Bloodhounds.
NEW YORK, August SI.?For the last
few weeks central office detectives under
the supervision of r'ourth Deputy Commissioner
Arthur Woods have been experiI
?.<t V. kwiknun,!. n-Hl, tl.o
of establishing a dog squad in the police
department. It is likely that Gen. Bingham,
upon his return from his vacation,
will buy about a hundred of these dogs,
which are to be used in running down escaped
criminals. They will be kept in precincts
in the sparsely settled sections of
the city.
The Idea of forming a dog squad originated
with Mr. Woods, who befor.e his appointment
went abroad arid studied the police
systems of all the principal cities In
Europe. He found that dogs are used by
me ponce iiiruuRiiuui r i nuue uiiu orusat-ia
In tracking: fugitives. When he returned to
th 1 a nnnntrv sii^irPstpH th?t (~Jpn Hinc
ham make an experiment.
A few weeks ago bloodhounds were tried
out in an up-state town and found to be of
great value in tracking persons. Experiments
also were made in this city with
success. A few days ago a bloodhound was
put on a trail four hours old. and after
taking up the scent he traced his man
through crowded streets and finally landed
him In hiding in a house.
Deputy Commissioner ^Voods said yesterday
that Tie believes the dogs will be of
great value In hunting criminals in the
outlying districts of the Bronx. Brooklyn,
Staten Island and Queens. It is Gen.
Bingham's intention to get the best bloodhounds
that can be bought and have them
trained by men fitted for the work.
Harlem Train Hits an Unspiked
swiil'u uiiu uiirs uro uixWHITE
PLAINS. N. Y.. August 31,-The
Chatham express, due in New York at 4:00
o'clock over the New York anil Harlem
railroad, was damaged at Chappaqua yesterday
afternoon and several hundred passengers
bound for White Plains and New
York were severely shaken up. Engineer
William Weaver and Fireman Edward Collins,
who remained at their posts when the
express jumped the tra;k, were oadly scalded.
They were brought to the White Plains
The accident occurred at the switch,
which had just been moved from left to
light on account of the changes in the
method of running the trains. The construction
crew had completed the switch,
eurely before the express came along1. As
the locomotive hit the crossover it jumped
the rails. The train was slowing down for
a stop at Chappaqua and only the locomotive
and baggage car went off.
The locomotive bumped along over tho
ties for about 100 yards and then toppled
over. Steam escaping from broken valves
scalded the englnemen painfully. Some of
the passengers were thrown out of their
seats and bruised, but no one was seriously
injured. Several car windows were broken.
The accident delayed traffic about two
hours. It was necessary for trains in
both directions to transfer their passengers.
