Lieut. Flather Declines to Prefer
Cearges Against Man.
Lieut. Flather of the fourth precinct
does t?ot believe that a charge of assault
fhould be brought against a man after
he has had what's coming to him. The
lieutenant caused some merrimeoit in the
Police Court today when he said to Judge
Kimball: "No. judge. I don't want to
prefer any charge against the man. I
lilt him."
Benjamin Harris, colored, was on trial
for disorderly conduct. He had resisted
arreat by Special Officer Harney, and
JLieut. Flather, who was passing, came
to Harney's assistance.
"The negro," said the lieutenant, "land
ed a terrific punch on my face when I
came up. Then I sulxiued him."
"Don't you want to prefer a charge
agafnst him?" asked Judge Kimball.
It wats then that the lieutenant ex
pressed his satisfaction with the per
sonally conducted punishment.
Good Templars and Anti-Saloon
League Getting Busy.
The leaders of the International Order
of Good Templars here are preparing to
wage a vigorous fight before the next
Congress to restrict the saloon business
in the District. Rev. E. C. Dinwiddle,
natioual superintendent of the order, is
preparing a bill which is expected will
either provide for total prohibition in the
District or will call for restricted saloon
zones. This latter provision would limit
t,hc sale of intoxicants, and practically
confine it to the center of the city.
A bill somewhat similar to the bill of
the Good Templars is being prepared for
the Anti-Saloon Lejigue by Attorney A. E.
Shoemaker. This bill, it is said, will re
ceive the practical support of many of
the churches in the District. Rev. C. E.
Guthrie of Hamline Methodist Church,
Rev. Dr. Donald C. MacLeod o{ the First
Presbyterian Church and Rev. p. A.
Baker are specially interested in it. In
the event of its failure to pass Congress
its supporters, it is said, might rally
around tin; measure proposed by the Good
Motor-Driven Sprinkler Will Be
Exhibited Here.

proper application of dust-laying oils to
roads, of which George M. Saybolt is the
designer, is to he exhibited in this city.

be oiled and the dust nuisance abated.

Smidley Machine to Be Prepared for
an Early Test.
The Smidley aeroplane was taken to
pieces early this morning at the Vermont
garage, where it has been spending the
past fortnight, and, being placed on a big
motor truck, was taken out to Benning,
where it will be housed under the race
track grandstand and put together for a
trial in the infield of the racp track.
J. II. Smidley, the inventor, has been
working for months on the monoplane,
and, while modest in his claims for the
new machine, hopes great things of it.
The trials at the track will be entirely
private, and owing to the delay In making
the propeller, probably will not occur till
some time next week It will take most
of the Intervening time to reassemble the
machine, and the young aviator will wait
for favorable weather conditions. The
start of the machine is to be from a
monorail, and the small ball-bearing
wheels arr expected to give It a good
start and keep It from running any dis
tance to speak of after it alights.
If the motor is powerful enough to keep
the machine in the air. at all, it iu ex-'
pcctcd to prove speedy.
District to Beautify Grounds
Near Engine House.
Commissioners Encourage Spirit of
Neatness Among Employes.
Bequests That Plot Be Improved by
the Planting of Flowers.
Hunt Approves.
Tn line with the efforts of the mem- J
herd of the District fire department to |
improve the property surrounding? the
engine houses, the Commissioners have
decided to Improve a plot of ground
which it owns adjoining No. 8 engine
house, on North Carolina avenue near
7th street southeast.
The plot, which lies between the en
gine house and the Eastern market,
has been an eyesore to the people liv
ing in the vicinity for some time; and
the firemen have declared that ihev
would look out for keeping the plot of
District ground looking attractive if it
were properly graded and put In shape
to be Improved by the District.
The appearance of the lot was re
cently brought to the attention of the
Commissioners by Judge Ivory G. Kim
ball of the Police Court.
"The District owns a plot of ground
between No. 8 engine house and the
Eastern market, which is neglected and
is a great eyesore to those living in it*
immediate vicinity, of whom I am one,"
Judge Kimball wrote to the Commis
sioners. *'
Speaks for Neighborhood.
"Qn behalf of the neighborhood, I re
spectfully request the Commissioners
to improve that ? plecc of "ground by
flowers and in other proper ways.
"I am Informed by the firemen that,
if so improved, they will gladly keep it
in order. The firemen of their own
volition improved the property to the
west of the engine house,'which is di
rectly opposite my house, and they arc
as anxious as are the neighbors to have
the ground to the east of the engine
house likewise improved."
Following, this appeal, .C. B. Hunt, en
gineer of highways, recommended to the
Commissioners that $150 be expended in
the grading of the plot of ground. Ab
soon a8 that has been done, it is ex
pected, the area will, under the hands
of the firemen of No. S engine company,
soon be one of the most attractive parks
in the city.
The lot fronts on North Carolina ave
nue?one of the streets of which the resi
dents qf. the southeast section, of the city
arc proud?for about seventy-flve feet
and extends bpek In triangular shape
about one, hundred feet. For some time,
it is explained by residents of the. neigh
borhood. the lot has looked more like a
barnyard than a city lot. In hor weather
what little grass there has been on the
lot driep up and leaves the. ground barren
and unattractive. It is. described an a
huge'dish of gravy in wet weather. At
most times, it is stated, it Is llttored
with paper and other debris from the
market house nearby.
Striking Contrast.
The lot Is in' strong contrast to the
yard the other side of the engine
house. A few years ago, it Is. declared,
that .side looked as bad as the lot. which
is now declared to be an eyesore. But
the firemen, tired of gazing at its neg
lected and unkempt appearance, besran
the work of improving it, and today H
is one of the most attractive lawns to
be found in the National Capital. The
green carpet of grass is dotted here and
there with blooming 'flowers' In small
The firemen are enthusiastic over the
prospect of improving the lot on the east
of the engine house. They declare they
will make it an ? attractive park if the
District will only give them a little help
in grading it ? and ? starting the genera.!
improvement, and they are looking for
ward to the time when they can begin to
plant some flowers in beds which they
are already determined upon having.

Admit Light to Dark Hallways and

From tiio Chicago Tribune.
Germany uses glass bricks for building
purposes with measurable success. In
Berlin is constructed a small villa, the
walls of which are built of glass bricks
of several shades of dark green and blue.
The glass bricks are especially adapted
to construction where light, cleanliness
and neatness are particularly in demand.
In Hamburg they are utilized in place of
windows. They admit light in walls
which police regulations require to be
fireproof and windowless.
In addition to admitting light to dark
hallways, rooms, etc.. they are said to
possess the same strength as ordinary
clay bricks. They are also utilized in
walls in yards and partitions in the in
terior of houses, salesrooms, offices, work
shops. etc.. as well as for the construc
tion of verandas, hothouses, kiosks, bath
rooms. hospitals, ice factories, butcher
shops; railway stations, breweries, stables

Including All Interest,
Is a proposition that most every day some levei-headed business man or
woman Investigates and r- alizes the true value of the offer. Here we
are offering perhaps h^ best planned six-room home ever offered In
the northwest, and offering it at practically an unheard-of price. Ordi
nary houses sell for this much money in remote sections of the city.
Investigate and you will appreciate this value. Compare it. and in
doing so remember that this home is located In a rapidly developing
section of the great northwest, and that is very essentiol when you
want to buy a home with good future value.
Remember that in this home is a finely planned kitchen, a dining
room wLh a large bay window, parquet floor, a handsome tiled bath.
Remember that several big builders have recommended their friends
to buy here, and that one of them remarked he could not duplicate
one under $4,250.
Las;, but most important, remember under the terms offered It
costs no more to buy this home than to pay rent for an inferior house.
