FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE.
Charge Made Against Washington
Lockie by Folice.
Washington Lockie, a painter, giving
his age as forty-nine years, was arrested
last night as an alleged fugitive from
Justice. It is charged that he took
flench leave of the Alexandria work
house last Tuesday. The Alexandria po
lice requested Alaj. Sylvester to have
his men make an effort to apprehend
Lockie, saying he was familiarly known
to many friends as "Big Chief."
Last night the police of the sixth pre
cinct found Lockie on the street, it is
alleged, under the influence of liquor,
and placed him under arrest. He was
m on fast asleep in his cell, and the po
lice authorities of Alexandria will come
for him today. ,
Clothing and Stick Fins Stolen.
Samuel T. Kalbfus, assistant assessor,
n?>tifled the police last evening that his
house. 1712 De Sales street, had been
robbed during his absence from home. An
entrance was effected through the base
ment window and two suits of clothing
and two stick pins stolen.

In the history of the Union Veteran
Legion, written by its founder. Gen. A. B.
Hay, it is stated that there was a period
in the history of the organization when it
seemed almost necessary to apologize for
its existence. "Many claimed," (ien. Hay
says, "it was antagonistic to the other
soldier organizations. But after a lapse
of more than a score of years since its
formation, no one can point to a solitary
act on the part of the legion which has
shown it to have been in opposition to or
not in sympathy with all other soldier as
sociations that have sprung into exist
ence since the civil war."
They Are All Real Soldiers.
The legion was formed March 31, 1881,
in the office of Gen. A. B. Hay in Pitts
burg, Pa., there being present beside Gen.
Hay fellow-veterans Gen. A. L. Pearson,
Maj. W. W. Tyson, Capt. Samuel Harper
and Capt. David Lowery.
"The oranizcrs were imbued with the
idea that an organization should oe
formed composed of none but real soldiers,
who had seen active service for a long
period and who had served their country
from none other than patriotic motives,"
says the historian.
It was decided that all who entered the
j association should be comrades not only
| in name but in fact. At the outset the
j rules required that a veteran to be eligible
I to membership must have served at least
! two years, unless sooner discharged for
wounds or disability. In a short while
| this rule was amended so that an appli
cant to be eligible for membership must
have volunteered prior to the order for the
first draft and have served two years con
tinuously, unless discharged for wounds
received in line of duty. No drafted per
son or substitute can become a member
of the Union Veteran Legion. As the
members are supposed to have partici
pated in one or more battles, they are re
ferred to as "the battlemen."
The objects of the order are given as
"The cultivation of true devotion to
American government and Institutions:
the moral, social and intellectual improve
ment of Its members, and their relief, and
the relief of their widows and orphans in
sickness and distress; the preservation of
friendly relations among those who fought
for the safety of the American Union; by
the personal example and influence of its
members to perpetuate the three great
principles?fraternity, charity and pa
triotism, and to promote the interest of
humanity, and all things being equal, to
give preference to its members in all busi
ness relations and to assist them, as far
as possible. In all honorable ways."
"Our ranks." says Gen. Hay in his his
tory of the 1". V. L., "can be recrultod
from a very limited class of the citizens
of the republic. Whatever of good our or
der can accomplish must be done in a few
short years. The ranks of those eligible
to membership are being rapidly deci
mated with none to take their places. We
can have no successors."
Gen. Hay Will pome.
Gen. Hay, the founder of the Union
Veteran Legion, will be a delegate to the
encampment to be convened Wednesday
forenoon. At the reception Wednesday
evening he will make the response to the
addresses of welcome.

ILLEGAL TRAFFIC ALLEGED.
Campbell Declares He Was Merely
Delivering Beer Already Ordered.
A charge of violation of the liquor
law was preferred ugainst William H.
Campbell, colored, who was Jocked up
at the sixth precinct pdllr-e station last
night. It is charged by the police that
the demand for beer was so great In
the alleys in the vicinity of the govern
ment printing office that Campbell sold
bottled goods at the rate of six for 25
"I work for a man in the business."
said Campbell. In his defense, "and was
only delivering orders.
"You see," he added, "the boss takes
orders from one Saturday to another
and sends me with them. I deliver the
beer and collect the money."
Policemen Beauregard and Roper,
who made the arrest, allege a different
condition of affairs. They charge that
Campbell sold beer from the wagon
with almost as much freedom as huck
sters sell produce. It Is their claim that
they had a person who had not ordered
beer from the saloonkeeper buy it from
Campbell and that marked money was
found on him when he was arrested.
Campbell, who gave his address as 42
Pierce street, was locked up in default
of bond. He will appear in the Police
Court tomorrow morning for trial, and
If convicted a charge of violation of
the internal revenue law will probably
be filed against him

Dally the condition of the business in
Schoenville becomes more stagnant. Many
shopkeepers in the section have been com
pelled to close their doors and the few
that remain open do little business. At
Preston, the end of the plant, most of
the company houses are empty, as evic
tion notices were served on all occupants
some time ago.
NOISE AND QUIET SIDE BY SIDE
Minnie Judson Entertains Police of
Minnie Judson, white, and Alice Brown,
j colored, were occupants of apartments
at the sixth precinct police station last
night. The former was charged with
disorderly conduct, while the latter was
accused of vagrancy.
Minnie complained because she had not
been given better quarters, but she had
been in such places so many times that
the police thought she had no reason to
complain. She made noise enough to
disturb everybody in the station .
Alice was so much dejected that she
did not feel as if she could make a
noise. She was anxious to get out, but
being without the necessary funds she
merely kept quiet.

APATHY OF THE HONEST.
E*-Gov. Folk Tells Why Cities Are
BRISTOL, Tenn., September 4.?"If the
honest voters in the badly governed cities
would assert themselves they could have
a local government of which they could
justly be proud," said ex-Gov. Joseph W.
Folk of Missouri in a Chautauqua ad
dress before an audience of 3,000 per
sons here tonight.
"In the worst governed cities the good
citizens are deplorably passive," con
tinued the speaker. "In such cases the
vicious are always active, and in this
way run things as they please."
That a wholesome and sensitive public
conscience is the best means of preserv
ing good government was the substance
of Gov. Folk's lecture.
HASKELL ADDRESSES TAFT.
Tells President Federal Government
Aids Violation of Liquor Law.
GUTHRIE, Okla., September 4.?Gov.
Haskell today addressed a letter to Pres
ident Taft, in which he charges the
federal government with giving aid to
violators of the prohibitory law in Okla
homa, first by allowing liquor adver
tisements to be sent through the mails:
second, by not conforming to the law in
issuing federal liquor licenses, and third,
through the abuse of the protection of
interstate commerce. The letter, which
is accompanied by a petition signed by
y.OOO citizens, concludes:
"We appeal to you on all three ques
tions above stated for such favorable
consideration as you may deem within
your lawful power at this time, and in
case your authority be not now legally
complete, we appeal to you to recommend
at the coming session of Congress the
enactment of such additional legisla
tion as may be necessary to give com
plete relief on all three propositions, to
the end that the United States govern
ment may at least cease to give aid
and assistance to those who would vio
late the laws of this or any other pro
hibition state or district."

JOHN SHERMAN A "VAG."
That's What the Policeman Told
the Desk Sergeant.
"My name is John Sherman," said a
prisoner at the sixth precinct police
station last night, his manner indicat
ing he was proud of his name.
John was wet on the inside last night,
the police say, having bent his elbow a
number of times, but he objected to
getting wet on the outside. He went
in the areaway at 221 I street north
west and was found there by Bicycle
"Come out of there," said the police
man to the intruder, but John made no
move in the direction of the sidewalk
and it was necessary for him to be
"Vag," was what the desk sergeant
was told when Sherman appeared at
the rail, and John was locked up.
More Overworked Bicycle Thieves.
"Bicycle thieves have been working

marked a member of the police force last
Reports received by the police show that
nine wheels were stolen during the two
days. In one instance the stolen property
was recovered and an arrest made.
Helped Himself to Clothes.
With a view to combating the ap
proaching winter cold, an unidentified
individual called at the house of Albert
N. C. Weisenborn, 735 Gtii street north
east, yesterday and met with great suc
cess. The intruder will probably find it
unnecessary to patronize a tailoring es
tablishment, as he got a suit of clothes
and an overcoat from the 6th street
house. Weisenborn wants the police to
recover his wearing apparel.

James Wliyte, seventy years of age, a

and W streets. The stolen property is
valued at JG.25.

RELICS OF THE WAR OF 1812.
Pictures Taken From the Captured
British Frigate Guerriere.
Two relics of the old British frigate
Guerriere captured by Capt. Isaac Hull,
commanding the United States frigate
Constitution, in August, 1812, have been
received at the Navy Department and will
be added to the collection of naval souve
nirs. They consist of two oil paintings
which were taken from panels of the
main cabin of the old British warship
and are presented to the Navy Depart
ment by Isaac Hull Piatt of Runnymede,
Wallingford, Pa., a direct descendant of
the American naval hero of 1812, ill
whose possession they have been for
many years. The pictures are in fairly
good condition considering their age. They
represent Iandscajx?s with buildings of
classic design, the identity of which is
not known. One gives a scene of what
was probably an old fortification, and the
building in the other painting resembles
somewhat the famous Parthenon. The
name o;' the artist in each case is obliter
Although not settled, it is probable that
these relics will be sent to the navy yard,
Boston, for preservation and exhibition in
the old ship Constitution. That disposi
tion is considered especially appropriate
because of the former close relations be
tween the Constitution and the Guerriere,

North Carolina Firm.
Postmaster General Hitchcock has ex
tended the time of the trial contract with
the Carolina Ice Company of Charlotte,

was let by former Postmaster General
Meyer last February, and expired yester
The ice machine was installed to give
the department a chance to manufacture
its own ice, at a cost of less than $1 per
ton. Under ordinary contracts for the
purchase of ice, the prices range from
to *4 per ton. and the department
spends about $1,500 annually in this man
ner. There has been a good deal of
trouble with the ice machine, which has
not worked satisfactorily, but the firm
is confident that with slight changes in
the machinery it will be effective. The
Postmaster General has not purchased the
machine, and is not obliged to do so un
