Fortune, chairman of the athletic committee, the call is meeting with a gratifying response. In connection with the field and track events there will a'.so be a Marathon race.

Already the battle of the ballots is on. Candidates are springing up on every hand and much activity is being manifested in their behalf. The Judges are Roe Fulkerson. Fred J.

Letter Containing $100. One of the clerks engaged In opening unclaimed letters and parcels in the dead letter division of the Post Office Depart ment Saturday ran across a letter which contained $100 in bills incased in two pieces of pasteboard. The letter contained no message of any kind that might lead to the identity of the sender. It was mailed in Boston and addressed to a party in New York. Some months ago a letter from a west ern city addressed to a point in Africa came to the dead letter office. It contain ed five $100 bills. The owner was subse quently found and the money returned. The dead letter offices handles about IGu.ouO in this manner annually. Of this amount about OS per cent is returned to its owners. The remainder is turned Into the Treasury. INEBRIATE ASYLUM NEEDED. Chief of Police and Board of Char ities Agree Upon Subject. For the better care of persons addicted to the use of intoxicating Hquor3 and drugs the chief of police and the board of charities are agreed that the District should have an inebriate asylum. The use of the old almshouse for this purpose has been suggested by the board of charities and Senator Gallinger intro duced a bill at the last session of Con gress to permit the detention of habitual drunkards and drug users there. The bill failed of passage. In urging the establishment of an in ebriate asylum the police chief and the board of charities point out that an aver age of 5.51)6 persons have been arrested for drunkenness each year during the past five years, and of these the police classed 324 as "habituals." Transfer of Ocean Mail. Since the establishment of the ocean mail transfer service in New York har bor, in 1007, it has grown to such great importance that a new boat will be put Into service within a few months. The mail tender known as the Postmaster General has been used exclusively to meet the Incoming European ocean liners st quarantine since the service was in augurated, getting the mail and trans ferring it to the city several hours be foie the ships have been docked. The number of new ocean liners added to the European service has made it impossible for the one tender to handle all the mail, so another boat, the John I^enox, was brought into service last month. This will help make the transfers until the new boat is completed. When the new born is ready for service, all liners carry- 1 ing ma.l from South America as well! as European ports will be met at quaran- j tin<? and relieved of their mail. Will Soon Return to Service. The schooners Thomas J. Shyrock, Capt. Insley, gnd the William L. Franklin, Capt. Robertson, are again ready for service and in i. few days they will be at a Vir ginia lumber port loading for this city or Baltimore. The schooners have been at a shipyard at Bethel. Del., for two months or longer receiving a thorough overhaul ing, and it is stated that they are in the best of order for fall service on the Chesa peake biy and its tributaries. The Shy rock is a frequent visitor to this city, but the Franklin is not so well known at this port. Woman Painfully Injured. Mrs. Mary E.

E FOR LEE PONG Falls Church Family Adopts Chinese Boy. OTHERS WANTED HIM But Probation Officer Decides in Chapin's Favor. WILL BE ONE OF THE FAMILY Go to School With the Other Chil dren and Eat at the Same Table. ? His Life History. Little Lee Pan* is happy. So is Pro bation Officer Zed H. C?PP, Judge Cal-. Ian and the other officials of the Juve nile Court. Lee has a home, a good American home. It is in the coun i>, too, and consequently a realization his heart's desire. Lee's uppermos wish has been to go to the country. Little Lee has been taken into the family of Paul Chapin of the Southern railwav, whose home is at Falls Church, Va. Mr. Chapin has a six-acre farm, with dogs and chickens and things cal culated to enrapture Lee. Mr. Chapin says he will t treat * his own son. give him a"?d"ctf,t become every other advantage. He will become the play-fellow of the three Chapin chil "lir. Chapin's sole idea, in a^^g for thp rustodv of Lee, was to give the little fellow a home He has lots of room for him, he says, and can ^e.carlng him Lee will attend school in Falls Church, with the other Chapin children, two ffirH twelve and seven years, and a boy four years old, and will go to Sunday school. Mr. Chapin signed papers making him Lee's guardian for a proba tion neriod of ninety days, and if things continue along smoothly. he wUl assum permanent guardianship until Lee eighteen years old. Vriflnv Lee went to his new h<|me Friday evening with Mr. Chapin, and the little fellow is delighted. Many "Wanted Him. Probation Officer Copp decided t0 ln" I trW Lee to Mr. Chapin, after he had carefully canvassed the applicants, who numbered ap-proximateley thirty-five, all told Those requesting the custody of the lad wanted him for every conceivable purpose. Several wished to havei himi as * rn*1 soot others as a servant, and still more wanted him to do light work. Others | would take him to board, if some one paid for his keep. Applications came | from every section of the country, and J from families in every walk of life. Judge Callan formally approved ofMr. Copp s selection of a home for Lee >es terdav when-all the facts were laid be fore him He agreed with Mr Copp that it was preferable to send the lad 1 h>l r? ? Chap in became interested in Lee from reading of the little fellow in The Star and until he called at the J"ve"^e Court Friday he had never seen the lad. Mr. Chapin has already given Lee permis siori to look after the several hundred chickens on the place. He told the court officers that Lee will be treated his own children and will eat at the table with the rest of the family and be in way treated as a servant. His Name Different. It was discovered yesterday through a complete family history that was taken to the Juvenile Court by Lee Do ^ oy, uncle of the boy, that Lee's name is not Lee Pong at all, but that it is Lee Kim, Pon. This history was written in Chi nese. and the uncle translated that por tion relating to Lee. He said that Lees mother's name was Lee Sing Tong and that his father was Lee Sook Moon The name Lee is the family name and the other name or names are what corre spond to the Christian name among the English-speaking race. Consequently Chi nese names are reversed, from the Ameri can viewpoint. Little Lee has a brother living in China who is older. This brother is named Lee Kim Ton. Lee's people have for genera tions lived in Long Jue La, a town in the province of Canton, China. Lee s father came to San Francisco with nis wife before Lee was bprn and started In , business as a merchant at 721 Commission i street. The family visited home when | Lee was little more than a baby. Four years ago hfs mother became seri ously ill and his father decided to sell , out and go "home. A year later the! mother died. Two years ago the father] died, leaving Lee an orphan. Lee was; an extremely bright boy and he learned rapidly to read and write Chinese at ] the Long Jue La school. Returned to America. When Lee was left an orphan relatives brought him to San Francisco again to take care of him. They found they could not support him, ajid his uncle, Ijee Do Woy (as he is known), brought him to Washington to rear, nine months ago. The uncle's family is in China, and he had no women folks to turn the lad over to, and he lived with the men in Do Woy's store. Inattention and the : lack of a woman's care made him rest-1 less and a wanderer in the city. The uncle's correct name is Lee Tim Moon, which was the name of his father; Lee Do Woy was the name of his mother. In an interview given to a Star reporter yesterday Rev. Mr. Copp expressed his gratitude at the ready response the com munity made to the appeal for little Lee He said he regarded it as char-, acteristic of the spirit of the community? | the kind-hearted .sympathy for and in terest in the homeless lad. Judge Callan, who has been deeply in terested in the case, expressed his relief | at the disposition that has been made of | the homeless boy. Now that Lee Pon is off his hands, Rev. Mr. Copp will leave the city with his family for his annual vacation today. The present week will be spent at the camp meeting at Great Falls, where he, will be one of the speakers. When the] camp meeting is over Mr. Copp will take his family for a trip through the south. Free Book on Cancer. An eminent specialist has written a book on the best method of treating cancer.

Edward Robey Overcome and Un done by Mania for Tools. Edward Robey was fond of tools. This fondness grew to be a mania of large proportions. It ingulfed Edward. Had not his prgress been interrupted by the police Edward would undoubtedly have seriously interfered with the progress of carpentry in this community. At the same time he boosted the hardware busi ness considerably. This feature was the silver lining of the darkening cloud of Edward's depredations. Hayden Henderson, Harry Moriarty, Robert I. Williams and Ernest Bank mann, all carpenters, aided and abetted in Edward's downfall. They each testi fied in police court yesterday that some one had broken open their respective tool chest in Bankmann's shop at 50 B street, southeast. Various pawn brokers testified that Edward had sold them quantities of tools. Edwards said it was all brought on by "the drink" and asked for another chance. Detective Mullin, who arrested Edward, produced his record. After glancing over it, the Judge informed the repentant de fendant that he had had ? too many "chances" already. Edward was given a three-month sentence for each of the four tool chests. Coblens & Co., Auctioneers, lOth'and F.nowopen. "Reliable goods only." Ad.v*- . ?

A program of games, dances and races for boys and girls had been arranged to demonstrate the success of the summer's j playground work, but the rain caused the postponement of the affair until a later date. On the back porch of the roomy old court building a number of enthusiastic little girls were on hand with a display of lace, worsted work and basketry, and down in the grounds a group of athletic youngsters were playing volley bail, with more youngsters looking on. A slip of a girl swung herself airily along a line of suspended rings and two boys climbed up a platform to slide down a chute, but the grounds had been put out of condi tion a'nd the ancient trees and flowering bushes were dripping with rain.

Yesterday he became one of the many hundreds who are "personally conducted" by Judge Kimball. Cossa is not a special representative sent here by one of the great corpora tions of Chile. He Is merely a sailor, and just wandered into the port of the "Peepul's City." His desire to study American methods was not at all vol untary. Judge Kimball is the agent who gave him the impulse. Cossa and the judge became acquaint ed when Cossa was haled into court yesterday, charged with being a vagrant, "a person loitering on the street, without visible means of support, etc." Cossa can speak very little English, but he man aged to explain that lie was a sailor and came here to see the sights. Judge Kim ball readily filled in the rest of the ex planation. Cossa would have been all right if he had not adopted a curb stone as his only visible means of support Upon this substantial though cold and unyielding couch he was wafted to sweet dreams last night, but he was rudely awakened by a policeman. Fifty Dollars for Arrest. The police have been advised that 550 reward will be paid for the arrest of William W. Hodge, twenty-two years of age, dark complexion, brown hair and blue eyes.

It was "easy money'' that two col ored men got from Raymond Johnson i near 14th and R streets yesterday after noon. and when Johnson realized he had been duped he called on the police and asked that they make an effort to find the pair of swindlers.

The boy jumped from the wagon and climbed to the top of a post and rail fence, the dog following and trying to attack him.

Elmer Kints was first, Thomas Degnam was second and Philip Vieham third. To the Invincible quartet went the vic tory in the relay race, although each member of the team was pushed hard through his relay of forty yards. On the winning team were Raymond Elia son, Harry Brown, Clarence Railey and Blaine Fitzgerald. Colored Contestants.

It was the itchy, watery kind and we had to keep his little hands wrapped up all the time, and If he would happen to get them uncovered he would claw his face till the blood streamed down on his clothing. We called In n physician at once, but he gave an ointment which was so severe that my babe would scream when It was put on. We changed doctors and medicines until we bad spent fifty dollars or more and baby was getting worse. I was so worn out watching and caring for blm night and day that I almost felt sure the disease was Incurable. But finally reading of the good results of the Cutlcura Itemedles, I determined to try them. I can truthfully say I was more than surprised, for I bought only a dollar and a half's worth of the Cutlcura Itemedles (Cutl cura Soap, Ointment and Pills), and they did more good than all my doctors' medicines I had tried, and, In fact, entirely cured him. 1 will send you a photograph taken when he was fifteen mouths old and you can see his face is perfectly clear of the least spot or soar of anything.

T *Hle events were under the direction of Instructor John Pinkett, who has charge of the colored boys' pool. Involuntary Plunge. One event of the afternoon which waa not scheduled, but which aroused much amusement amor.g those at the pools, oc curred just at the start of the half-mile i ace. "John." the colored Janitor, be came excited during the opening dash of the contestants, and just as he threw both arms In the air and started a lusty cieer for his favorite he lost his balance. Although he has been around the pools f?5 ^ niany months "John" did not enjoy this sudden plunge. He was unable to swim, hut his cries attracted the atten tion of Instructor Zinkhan and he was pulled to terra lirma. Many government clerks found the natlung beach a line place to spend the Saturday haif holiday, and, although the week days are primarily for the young sters, Supt. W. B. Hudson stretched a point m their favor and they were al lowed to take a swim. Dr. Hudson was in charge of the con tests, and his watchful care over the contestants and his command over the boys wnile the races were in progress were the subject of many favorable com ments by visitors. SWIMMING IN THE HARBOR. Basin Not the Only Place Where the Boys Have Fun. Swimming in Washington is not confined to the swimming basins under the shadow of the \\ ashington Monument, but devo tees of the sport can be found almost any day swimming in the harbor from the vari ous wharves. The favorite bathing places in the harbor seem to be from the lumber wharves about the foot of Oth street southwest, but the boys go in at other wharves, wherever the occupants of the premises are good-natured enough not to stop them. This deep-water swimming is developing good swimmers among the youngsters, , not at a'l uncommon for boys hardly in their teens to jump into the water, swim across the harbor and back again without apparent fatigue. Some, more ambitious, will swim the length of the harbor and return to the starting point. As for diving and doing other stunts in the water, the Washington boy is the equal of the boys of any city In the country. Turning somersaults In the air before going head or feet first into the water, making backward dives and diving head first from high places are some of the more common stunts done by the boys, but even more difficult feats are attempted and accomplished. The bathing season lasts as long as the air is warm, and on balmy days even late in the fall, after there has been good cold weather and there is considerable chill in the water, boys can be seen swimming in the harbor, so fond are they of the sport. $86.75 to Alaska-Yukon Exposition via Baltimore & Ohio.
